Snex is a smasher from Chicago, Illinois with a long history. He has mained nearly every character in the top two tiers at some point.

He hosted the Snexus tournaments that really marked the beginning of the Midwest smash scene, and attracted Recipherus and Isai from California for the first time.

Snex is known for his inflammatory remarks on GameFAQs and SSBDC.

Snex’s legacy in the Smash scene is undeniable, but he is best known for earning his reputation on the GameFAQs Smash Brothers message board, a site that some Smash players saw as a rival to Smashboards. He was known as a fierce debater, never failing to heckle his opponents at every opportunity whilst intelligently destroying every argument that opposed his beliefs, such as the most common argument that “tiers don’t exist.”

While it is rumored that he brought the first agreed upon tier list to GameFAQs, his legacy began when he merely posted the damage charts of Marth and Roy, and used it to try to convince forum-goers of Marth’s superiority. Opinions differed as to his level of amazingness, with some GameFAQs members worshiping Snex as a messenger to the pitiful masses and the best player in the country. Others couldn’t believe he thought Roy could possibly be worse than Marth and thought him a grumpy old man. Either way, everyone on the GameFAQs board had an opinion on him, and constant references and “Who is Snex?” topics continued for several years after his first appearance.

Ultimately the irrelevant debate on whether or not tiers exist and the even more common “Roy has TEH PH1R3?!>!1” topics pushed members to Smashboards as a place for the mature, more seasoned tournament players.
