For the Project M Zero Suit Samus player with a similarly named alias, see Smasher:Oro?!.

Oro is an original member of Team Ben. No longer active in Melee competitive play, he once competed alongside HugS and Wes for the title of best Samus main in the nation.

Oro, a devout fan of the Metroid series, has played Samus for as long as he has been playing Smash. His first tournament was Live or Die, where he was able to play dittos with Samus legend JTanic. Oro developed a hunger for success, and he was able to achieve top 25 status along with his teammates, Husband and Wife.

Oro has never had a consistent teams partner, and never really enjoyed the teams tournament. He did excel in singles, however, displaying lots of tricks and style when he played. Oro shows impressive recovering ability, staying calm off the stage and keeping his opponent guessing.

At GS2, Oro played a match of epic proportions against his rival, Wes. The match was so intense it practically sent Oro into a breakdown when he won, exemplifying his passion for the game. Despite a long run of dedication to the game, Oro lost interest in the competitive scene during the 2006 MLG season. He still plays the game for fun with his teammates and friends.
