Savestate is a Super Smash Bros. Melee player from North Carolina who currently resides in Redmond, Washington. She is known as a very style-oriented Link main and is responsible for discovering several of Link's more esoteric techniques, such as Bomb Launching, Ghost Arrow, Dimensional Arrow, and Bomb Rocket. Savestate has notably taken sets off of Cob, Tylenol, and Feradit. During her residency in Sweden, she got ranked 7th on the Swedish Power Rankings, while before that managing 10th on the North Carolina Power Rankings.

In addition to her technical discoveries, Savestate is also known for taking on the role of community streamer and graphic designer for the North Carolina Melee community. Her endeavors in streaming led Savestate to create smash.LIVE as a streaming service for North Carolina, later joining Recursion as a producer and designer.

Outside of tournaments, Savestate also occasionally competes in speedrunning Melee's 1-P modes. In February 2018, Savestate successfully broke the 3.55s 14-year old world record on Link's Target Test stage with a world record of 3.52 IGT. In September 2018, Savestate developed an RNG manipulation program to achieve a world record time of 37.45 IGT in All-Star Very Easy mode, which was beaten later that day by Fuzzyness upon distribution of the program.

Savestate retired from Melee competition on March 2nd, 2023.[1]
