Plup is a smasher from Florida considered to be one of the best Melee players in the world. He is the best Sheik player in the world, a top Fox player, one of the best Samus players in the world (and was widely considered the best Samus prior to relegating her as a secondary), and one of the best Luigi players in the world. He has strong placings in nationals, including 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 take a set off of each of the Five Gods, after defeating Armada at The Big House 7. He is a strong doubles player, frequently teaming with Hungrybox, and more recently teaming with Mew2King, taking 1st at GENESIS 5 doubles. He is currently ranked 2nd on both the Central Florida Melee Power Rankings and Summer 2018 MPGR.
After Apex 2015, Plup made switched from Samus to Sheik while still using Samus as an occasional counterpick. Plup has also demonstrated his competence with other characters, such as Luigi which he used exclusively at CEO Dreamland, defeating Nintendude and Druggedfox and placing 5th, the highest placing a solo Luigi has received at a major. He placed 3rd at CFL Smackdown 72 by playing exclusively Young Link. In 2016, Plup showed early success with Fox, winning Frame One and defeating Wizzrobe, Axe, and Colbol in the process.
