Stranded, or Mercy, is a SSB64 player who mains Captain Falcon and Pikachu, known for his flashy style and having arguably the best technical skill in the world at Smash 64 along with his brother KeroKeroppi and Zero. Stranded is considered one of the best Captain Falcon players in North America, only behind SuPeRbOoMfAn, Mariguas, and Zero. He was ranked 14th on the 2016 64 League Rankings and 27th on the 2017 ranking while using primarily secondaries. He also mains Fox in Melee.

He is the younger brother of KeroKeroppi and along with him and his other brother Maliki, a member of the New York-based crew Koroshiyo. Along with his brother, Stranded announced his retirement from Smash 64 in favor of Melee in early 2017. More recently however, Stranded has only played doubles in events such as LTC 5 or SSC 2017 primarily with Zero or other strong players such as KD3. This is outside of a few choice events such as Low Tier City 5 as well as the more local regional The Empire Smashes Back and more recently at Super Smash Con 2019. He also occasionally plays singles at locals such as at Under Dog in Haledon, NJ and the Big Apple Smash events in Manhattan, New York. At these events, he routinely enters with alternative tags such as Carlisle or Calcium, much to the dismay of tournament seeders. He's also an advocate for Smash Remix playing Ganondorf, Falco, and the recently released Wario.
