TR3GTheZ (colloquially referred to as The Z) is a top professional Super Smash Bros. 64 player currently ranked first on the Montreal Smash 64 Power Rankings and 16th on the 2017 64 League Power Rankings, who is known as one of the best players in the world and the second best in Canada behind SuPeRbOoMfAn. He placed in the top 10 of national tournaments such as Apex 2015 and Genesis 3, and placed 2nd at Get On My Level 2016. His teammate of choice is tacos, and the duo known as Team Luv has gone to Grand Finals of both Apex 2015 and Genesis 3. He is the head of TR3G, a crew of Fox mains dedicated to advancing the character's metagame. Although his Fox has seen sparse use in recent tournaments, it is widely considered to be one of the most proficient in the world and a fan favorite. Instead, he has met competitive success with multiple characters, including Yoshi, Pikachu, Captain Falcon, Kirby, Jigglypuff and Donkey Kong, and is known to be able to play virtually all characters at a top level. The Z currently plays for SSBMontreal.
The Z made his international debut in January 2014 at Apex. He was placed in Pool 1, where he defeated YBOMBB (then considered Canada's second best player) 2-1 before being sent to loser's bracket by the Japanese player Merihim 1-2 and was later eliminated by tacos 0-2 to ultimately land at 25th.
In March, he participated at Polybash XIII in Montreal where he beat notable American and Canadian players such as Sex 2-0 and Fireblaster 2-0, and notably defeated Mew2King 3-1 using Donkey Kong. He placed 2nd, only losing to KeroKeroppi.
