Zelgadis is a Fox player who is a former member of DBR of Concord, CA. He was once ranked 6th on the NorCal Power Rankings and had many strong performances in tournaments during the Golden Age of Melee. He gained fame with the release of the DBR combo videos where he demonstrated his mastery of Fox's shine and other advanced techniques in "Shined Blind" and "Evolution" where he almost looks ahead of his time. At GENESIS 2, Zelgadis took $6,000 from the prize pot, though he later returned the money. In 2015 he spoke publicly for the first time about the incident in a lengthy post on SmashBoards. According to him it was a misunderstanding gone terribly wrong because he made some bad decisions at the time due to outside circumstances affecting his mindset.
