Zackray (ザクレイ) is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player from Tokyo, Japan. He has mained a variety of characters through his career, including Wolf, Wario, Joker, and R.O.B., and he currently mains Pit and Dark Pit. He is currently the best Pit and Dark Pit player in the world and was considered to be one of the best Joker players in the world along with MkLeo as well as the best Wolf and R.O.B. player in the early metagame when he mained the characters. With his success in his home country and at the international level including 1st place finishes at Umebura SP 7, EGS Cup 3, Eastern Powerhouse Invitational FINAL, and most notably The Big House 9, he was widely considered to be the best player in Japan from 2019-2020, and top 2 in Japan through 2021 alongside ProtoBanham. He is currently ranked 12th on the OrionRank 2022 Japan and 22nd on the LumiRank Mid-Year 2023; he was also ranked 1st on the old Experimental Smash Player Rankings.

Zackray is known for his mastery of many characters and his ability to quickly pick up new characters, and has already played high-level tournaments with more than 20 different characters. This gives him many options when it comes to counterpicking characters; an example of this can be seen when he switched from Sonic to Joker to pull off a reverse 3-0 against Maister at The Big House 9. He notably won The Big House 9 using seven different characters and won at least a game with five of them.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Zackray was a Corrin and Bayonetta main who also used Marth as a secondary. He was considered the best Corrin player in Japan and has taken sets off of top players such as KEN, Abadango, Kirihara, Tsu, Nietono, Raito, HIKARU, and Atelier. He is currently ranked 8th on the JAPAN Power Rankings and 88th on the Panda Global Rankings 100.

On December 6th, 2018, Zackray announced his new sponsor GameWith.[1] GameWith merged with DetonatioN Gaming to form DetonatioN FocusMe on December 22nd, 2022, signing Zackray in the process.[2]


Zackray is able to play unconventionally with normally considered passive characters, such as R.O.B., aggressively searching through weaknesses in an opponent’s mindset, yet able to maintain a calm and calculating stance throughout sets. In neutral situations, he patiently waits for the opponent to move and counterattack at the right opportunity. Zackray is also known for picking up many characters for his adaptation to certain matchups as well as downloading data on his opponent's playstyles. He did this to Maister by going Sonic for the first 2 games of the set in The Big House 9, and by reverse 3-0ing him by going back to Joker.
