Peanut is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Little Mac player from Maryland, considered the best Little Mac player in the United States. Peanut has offline wins over players such as naitosharp, ZD, Jahzz0, Capitancito, Comet, Dexter, Mj,and Kreeg, as well as online wins over players such as 8BitMan, WaDi, Myran, LeoN, Ned, Jake, Syrup, and WebbJP. He is currently ranked 5th for MD on the MD/VA Ultimate Power Rankings.

Playstyle[edit]

Peanut's playstyle is methodical and patient, utilizing Little Mac's speed to bait approaches and win neutral exchanges, and tech chasing/ledge-trapping to efficiently deal large punishes. Despite the general stigma of Mac being weak on platform stages, Peanut's gameplan includes lots of platform maneuvering, jump fakeouts to grabs, and tech chases with up smash; as a result, he enjoys counterpicking tri-platform stages like Battlefield in order to platform camp or net early kills with up tilt to Rising Uppercut. Peanut also utilizes several advantages of Mac's kit to surprise opponents, such as cancelling the armor of Little Mac's neutral special into an up smash, Gazelle Punches from ledge, and neutral aerial and up special to break out of combos.

Peanut is known for his use of Little Mac's worst traits, most notably Little Mac's aerial attacks, which he uses to both tech chase and initiate aerial combos. He is perhaps most well-known for his recoveries as Little Mac, maximizing the potential of the character's notoriously weak recovery by properly conserving his airdodge and mixing up his recoveries, including using Mac's aerial drift to avoid ledge punishes.

Trivia[edit]

  • Peanut started playing Little Mac as he was the only character in the Ultimate roster that he did not recognize when he got the game for Christmas, and he decided to main the character since Mac looked weak and thought it would "be funny".[1]
  • Peanut's name originated from high school, as there were three to four kids in school that shared his real name (Ethan). His classmates called him Peanut to differentiate him as he was a "tan and short" kid, and the nickname stuck.
