Sultan of Samitude (also known as Sam) is a retired Falco main from California. He was considered the best Falco player on the West Coast during his prime along with Justin Junio, placing in the top 8 of several Tournament Go events and locals. He won the meleepalooza tournament defeating the Tournament Go 2 and Tournament Go 3 champions. Sultan of Samitude also had a brief stint in the West Coast crew DBR before leaving the community and retiring at an unknown date.

He was briefly mentioned in the The Smash Brothers documentary when Ken recalled that Sam challenged him to a money match prior to Tournament Go 4. Despite Sam's claims that Marth was "not even top tier," he was outplayed by Ken's Marth and swiftly 4-stocked. Footage of this money match still exists on YouTube, and provides an interesting look at the early Melee metagame; in addition to Mute City being the stage of choice for the match, items were enabled.
