Plup is a smasher from Florida who is considered to be one of the best Melee players in the world. He is considered one of the two best Sheik players (along with Mew2King), a top Fox player, the best Samus player in the world, and one of the best Luigi players in the world. He has had strong placings in nationals, such as 1st at GENESIS 5 and DreamHack Atlanta 2017, 2nd at The Big House 7, 3rd at EVO 2016, 4th at CEO 2016, and 5th at EVO 2017, Smash Summit 2 and Smash Summit 3. He is also the second player in competitive Melee history to have taken a set off of each of the Five Gods, after defeating Armada at The Big House 7. He is also a strong doubles player, frequently teaming with Hungrybox to great success, and more recently teaming with Mew2King to take 1st at Genesis 5 doubles. He is currently ranked 2nd on the Central Florida Melee Power Rankings and 5th on the 2017 SSBMRank.
After Apex 2015, Plup made the switch from Samus to Sheik while still using Samus as an occasional counterpick. Plup also has demonstrated his competence with other characters such as Luigi which he used exclusively at CEO Dreamland, defeating Nintendude and Druggedfox and placing 5th to give the character its best placing at a major. He also managed to place 3rd at CFL Smackdown 72 by playing exclusively Young Link. In addition, he won the tournament Frame One in 2016 using only Fox, defeating Wizzrobe, Axe, and Colbol in the process.
Plup is also a professional Project M Samus player, and also plays Meta Knight and Sheik occasionally in both singles and doubles. He took 1st place in CEO 2014 Project M doubles with fellow Florida smasher Wizzrobe.
