Peli, formerly known as Peligod, is a Sonic player from Hertford, England, considered one of the best players from the United Kingdom throughout Ultimate's lifespan. He was initially a King Dedede player, before relegating him as a occasional secondary, and was considered the best King Dedede player in Europe, defeating players such as T, Larry Lurr, Meru, and Lancelot. Following a period where he retired, came back and switched through several mains, Peli eventually settled on Sonic, and has seen greater success with the character, becoming the first European player to eliminate Glutonny from a national-level Ultimate tournament, doing it so at VCA 2021 and winning the tournament in the process. He has also used Sonic to defeat players such as BassMage, Leon, Mr.R, and Chag. Peli is currently ranked 3rd on the United Kingdom Power Rankings, 34th on the OrionRank 2022 Europe, and was formerly ranked 17th on the PGRU v3 EU.

In SSB4, Peli was a Sonic main who also used King Dedede as a secondary. He had wins over players like Fatality, Locus, Ixis, TLTC, ho, Afro Smash, Matsu, and Destany. He is currently ranked 6th on the England Power Rankings and 33rd on the European Smash 4 Power Rankings.

On October 21st, 2020, Peli was dropped by London Esports after they discontinued their Super Smash Bros. division[1]. As of November 2021, Peli is now sponsored by True Cryme, picked up off the back of his victory at VCA 2021.

  • Peli is a notable supporter of Jet Hammer, stating it is one of Dedede’s best moves[2] due to covering most ledge options upon reaction except jump.
