Plup is a smasher from Florida, who is considered to be one of the best players in the world, one of the best Melee Sheik players (along with Mew2King) and the best Samus player in the world. He has had strong placings in nationals, such as 3rd at EVO 2016, 4th at CEO 2016, and 5th at Smash Summit 2 and Smash Summit 3. He is also a strong doubles player, frequently teaming with Hungrybox to great success. He is currently ranked 6th on the 2016 SSBMRank and 1st on the Central Florida Melee Power Rankings.
After Apex 2015, Plup has officially made the switch from Samus to maining Sheik, while still using Samus as an occasional counterpick. Plup also has demonstrated his competence with other characters such as Luigi with whom he almost managed to defeat Colbol at CFL Smackdown 68. 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.
