DELTA 8 was a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate supermajor held in Minato-ku, Tokyo, Kantō on May 3rd, 2024 as the second of three major/supermajor tournaments of the 2024 Golden Week.

Tournament summary[edit]

Many upsets took place in pools, most notably #66 seed Rarikkusu upsetting #2 seed Sparg0 2-0 (upset factor 11). Other upsets include #138 seed Maipan upsetting #10 seed Tea 2-0 (upset factor 8) and #73 seed Yn upsetting #9 seed Asimo 2-1 (upset factor 6). In addition, several prominent Japanese players failed to make it out of pools, including #18 seed Neo, who lost to #146 seed U 1-2 (upset factor 6) and #271 seed US 0-2 (upset factor 8) to place 129th; #37 seed Jogibu, who lost to #92 seed Tarakotori 0-2 and #101 seed Syadou 0-2 to place 97th; #38 seed Kome, who lost to #91 seed Kuhaku 1-2 and #59 seed Reno 0-2 to place 129th; and #46 seed Hero, who lost to #83 seed Crete 1-2 and #14 seed Zackray 1-2 to place 65th. Finally, the only notable international player who failed to make it out of pools was #32 seed MKBigBoss, who lost to #33 seed Shirayuki 0-2 and #65 seed Rimu 0-2 for 65th.

The main bracket saw several notable runs from players who were not expected to make it as far as they did. This included #56 seed Leaf, who after being upset by Yn saw a strong Loser's run eliminating #41 seed Eim 2-1, #53 seed takera 3-2, #36 seed BassMage 3-0, and #13 seed Maister 3-2 to place 17th, one of the best Robin runs at a supermajor; Maipan, who after defeating Tea also defeated #67 seed 33Peranbox and eliminated seed Zackray for 17th; and #31 seed Lv.1, who saw arguably the best tournament run of his career so far by eliminating Tea 3-1, Sparg0 3-1 (upset factor 7), and #3 seed Hurt 3-1 (upset factor 6) to make top 8 on Loser’s Side. On the other hand, a few other notable players failed to meet their seed by a notable margin. This included Asimo, who lost to #44 seed Akio 2-3 (upset factor 4) for 49th; #19 seed Toriguri, who fell in Zackray's Loser's run for 49th; and Hurt, who placed 9th, his first sub-top 8 placement of the season. On the other hand, this marked #11 seed MkLeo's best run at a Japanese major up to that point, as he was able to place his seed after losing to Shuton 0-3 (extending Shuton's game record over MkLeo to 12-0) and #23 seed Akakikusu. MkLeo ultimately became the highest-placing international player at the tournament, with Sparg0, Glutonny, and Zomba placing 13th (Glutonny notably losing the runback against Carmelo while Zomba was reverse 3-0'd by both Raru and TamaPDaifuku); Maister and Kinaji placing 25th; BassMage placing 33rd; and U placing 49th.

In top 8, acola lost his first set of the season, losing 1-3 to Miya in Winner's Semi-Finals. acola easily ran through the rest of the bracket to meet Miya in Grand Finals, where he won both sets 3-1 and 3-2, winning his second "premier" event of the season. Both players popped off at the end of the set, with many spectators raising their concern for Miya's popoff as he seemingly hit his head on the table before falling down. It was later revealed he only scratched his arm in the incident.

The sheer amount of upsets gave many Japanese players new player values for LumiRank, and as a result around 500 points were added to the player point system. Not only did this allow DELTA 8 to maintain its "premier" status on LumiRank, but it also had an impact on many previous Japanese tournaments, including retiering UltCore Second, Sumabato SP 45, and Maesuma'U22 to A-tier, therefore giving Glutonny an additional major win and Miya two additional major wins. This also led to Glutonny now being a triple-crown holder (the third in Ultimate’s history) due to UltCore Second being retiered.
