MikeHaze is a professional Melee and former Brawl player who resides in Burbank, California. His main character in Melee is Fox, while in Brawl he mained Marth and was the US's most prolific Marth player throughout its competitive life. He was the main event organizer of the Elite Four tournament series in southern California, and was a member of the Unity Ruleset Committee.

MikeHaze is currently ranked 13th on the SoCal Melee Power Rankings and 31st on the Summer 2019 MPGR. He was also formerly ranked 6th on the West Coast Brawl Power Rankings, while being once ranked as high as 2nd on the SoCal Brawl Power Rankings, and was formerly ranked 46th on the 2014 SSBBRank.

On top of being a high level competitor, Mike is also known as a content creator on both Twitch and YouTube.

In Melee, he has beaten many top players such as Mango, Lucky, The Moon, Fly Amanita, ChuDat, Colbol, Chillin, and Plup.

Background[edit]

MikeHaze began playing Melee in 2006, after seeing HugS play at a tournament his school held. His first tournament was Champ Combo: Yayuhzzzz Edition.

Mike competed throughout many west coast events throughout this era, although never reached a ranked player status in his initial days of Melee. As of 2008, MikeHaze began playing Brawl for fun, while playing Melee competitively throughout Southern California. After a 3rd place finish at Nexus 08, MikeHaze retired from Melee.

MikeHaze then played Super Smash Bros. Brawl competitively, and was ranked 3rd on the Southern California Power Rankings prior to his retirement. He was considered the best Brawl Marth player in the United States throughout its active competitive life, as he beaten top players such as Ally before in tournament, and always significantly outperformed other Marths in the country. On the world stage, while MikeHaze's Marth was still among the best, Mikeneko and Mr. R outperformed MikeHaze's Marth at nationals.

In 2011, Mike started the "Elite 4 Series," a series of Brawl events that helped keep the SoCal Brawl scene thriving. Over 25 tournaments were held for the series, a few of which also featured Melee.

During the Summer of 2013, MikeHaze stopped organizing events to focus on his professional competitive career. With no active Brawl tournament series and the release of Project M Mike began competing in Melee once again, still playing his former main, Fox.
