Scar, the self-proclaimed "Most electrifying man in Smash today" (a reference to former WWE superstar wrestler The Rock), or "The People's Champ", is a Captain Falcon main originally from Philadelphia but currently living in San Francisco, California, where he was formerly ranked 9th on the NorCal Melee Power Rankings. He is mostly known for being a commentator, with his static commentating partner being Toph. He is a founding member of Melee It On Me.
Scar started playing Melee in early 2007, meeting Cactuar, Pakman, and other Philadelphia players somewhat randomly. With Cactuar becoming his primary training partner, Scar enjoyed many of the perks of being a pro vicariously, and his intense dedication to the game resulted in his quick rise from obscurity.
Perhaps another reason for Scar's prominence is his extensive use of branding. He has self-promoted since the release of his first combo video, I Killed Mufasa. The video's success propelled him to what was then said to be "an undeserved level of recognition", and "catching up to his reputation" became one of Scar's most important goals.
Since then, Scar became known as one of the best Captain Falcon professionals in America during his prime. He is also a co-founder of the crew "The Mini-Bosses." Scar further cemented his position as one of the best Falcon players after placing 6th at GENESIS, higher than any other Falcon player there. He moved to northern California and defeated another top-ranked Falcon, SilentSpectre, in a money match at his first northern California tourney, R3.
Since 2013, Scar has been working at Twitch, primarily serving as the first ambassador of the Smash community. D1, TheCrimsonBlur, and Toph would eventually join Twitch with the collaborative purpose of growing the Smash community.
Scar, Prog, and D1 were selected by Nintendo to commentate the Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament. Their participation was revealed in the form of Smash 4 newcomer-style images. Months later, he appeared, along with Toph, as a commentator in Nintendo's Smash 4 event at San Diego Comic Con, and later commentated together during the Top 8 bracket at EVO 2015.
Scar currently co-hosts the recently revived "Scar and Toph Show" with Toph (airing live on Melee It On Me's Twitch stream every other Monday evening), often discussing any topic they desire with some relevance to the Smash scene as a whole before ending the show off with a first-to-3 Melee set to determine whose name gets to be first on the show's title (as votes for either order were even, and it originally started off with "Toph and Scar" due to Toph instigating the show's revival and commissioning the logo's artwork). He would finally defeat Toph in episode 3 of the "Scar and Toph Show", and earned the right to have his name first on the show's title for the next episode. Scar also appears on "Terrible Tuesdays" with fellow Twitch staff member BenSW, where he watches BenSW do blind playthroughs of various games without assisting him.
He continues to enter local tournaments simply as MIOM|Scar (omitting the fact that Twitch is technically also a crew name), though he is semi-inactive when it comes to attending majors; he is often at events for commentary instead. He has beaten players such as Cactuar, SwiftBass, ZoSo, Hax, DJ Nintendo, Vwins, PC Chris, Isai, SFAT, S2J, MacD, Tafokints, Taj, Wife, and Jman.
