Vudujin is an American Melee Luigi player from Pennsylvania, often considered one of the original Luigi players alongside Ka-master, as well as one of the best Luigi players in the United States.

Alongside The Lake and Nakamaru, Vudujin formed the backbone of the Melee scene in Butler, Pennsylvania before eventually merging with the rest of the Pittsburgh players. He also discovered and popularized the Vududash, a technique that allows Luigi to keep momentum after wavedashing off a platform. He is often credited for initially encouraging fellow Pittsburgh player Abate to solo main Luigi.

Vudujin was formerly ranked 5th on the Pittsburgh Melee Power Rankings.
