Riddles is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Terry and Kazuya player from Toronto, Ontario, considered the best player from Canada, the best Terry player in the world and one of the best Kazuya players in the world alongside Tea. Riddles initially played Richter and was considered the best Richter player in the world during the early metagame. His breakout performance was at Super Smash Con 2019, where he most notably eliminated Dabuz en route to a 13th place finish. After dropping Richter and briefly touching Ken and Joker, Riddles picked up Terry and, after solo-maining the character throughout the pandemic, also picked up Kazuya. Riddles is currently ranked 10th on the Wi-Fi Warrior Rank v7, 1st on the Southern Ontario Ultimate Power Rankings, 2nd on the Smash Canada Rankings Ultimate, 18th on OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse North America, 27th on the OrionRank Ultimate: Eclipse, and 6th on the PGRU v3 NA.

In Smash 4, Riddles was a Mega Man main with a Ryu secondary. He was an honorable mention on the Southern Ontario Smash 4 Power Rankings and has defeated players such as Jw, Burst, V115, and Pokecheese.

Riddles joined team ZENMA on August 15th, 2019, along with many other smashers. Approximately two weeks later, on August 30th, 2019, Riddles, along with many of the other smashers signed by team ZENMA, announced that he was leaving the organization due to controversies with its CEO, false[1]. In February 2020, Riddles was signed by Even Matchup Gaming[2] and left on April 19th, 2022.[3] On May 25th, 2022, he was signed by Team Liquid.[4]

Playstyle[edit]

Riddles is known for his devastating pressure and punish game. He is a huge threat while piloting the fighting game characters, being able to close out stocks in very little time with his impressive advantage state and shield pressure. Riddles is also known for having incredible movement with the fighting game characters, despite their mobility being very poor.
