GENESIS 8 was a supermajor tournament for Melee and Ultimate and the 8th edition of the GENESIS tournament series. It took place place in San Jose, California, from April 15th-17th, 2022. The event featured singles and doubles tournaments for Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and is a major event for Rivals of Aether, Guilty Gear Strive, and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. GENESIS 8 also featured side events for Dance Dance Revolution Extreme, Magical Drop III, Super Street Fighter II Turbo, and Windjammers 2.

The event was originally set to take place between January 28th-30th, but was postponed to April due to concerns over the high amount of cases of COVID-19.[1] A charity event called GenAssist was made to help the GENESIS 8 crew with the six-figure cost of postponing GENESIS 8, which partnered with the online Melee tournament Ludwig Ahgren Championship Series 4.

Trivia[edit]

  • raoul flew from France to San Francisco, California on January 14th, 2022 to arrive early before the tournament's original dates of January 28th-30th, 2022. After his flight landed, he learned the tournament had been postponed earlier that day.[2]
  • This is the largest offline Melee tournament by entrants since GENESIS 4 in January 2017, and the largest offline Ultimate tournament by entrants since Super Smash Con 2019 in August 2019.
  • Due to the venue having a hard cutoff at 10:00 p.m. before paying staff for overtime, the Ultimate doubles Grand Finals reset was played offstream.[3]
  • This tournament stands as Tweek's worst placement at an Ultimate tournament, tying Smash 'N' Splash 5 with a 33rd place finish.
  • This is the first major Melee tournament to have only one spacie player in Top 8 (iBDW with Fox) since MELEE-FC3 (Dave with Falco) almost 17 years prior.
    • Both Top 8s interestingly had two Peach players; MELEE-FC3 had Sastopher and KrazyJones, while GENESIS 8 had lloD and Kalamazhu.
    • Both tournaments were ultimately won by a Marth player (Ken for MELEE-FC3, Zain for GENESIS 8).
    • Standing the test of time, ChuDat and Drephen were also in attendance for both tournaments.
  • Although AndresFn and Vendetta's exhibition FT5 was for the symbolic title of best shoto player in Ultimate, both finished 97th in bracket and were significantly outplaced by Ikan, who used only Ryu on route to a 9th place finish. This spawned numerous jokes (in which both players took part) about Ikan being the one true shoto master.[4]
  • This is the first GENESIS tournament where Mango did not place in Top 8, having been sent to loser's bracket in Round 2 pools by Fizzwiggle before being eliminated from the tournament by Hungrybox for 9th place.
  • This is the first tournament that Lord has attended since EVO 2016.
  • Prior to Sparg0 vs. Zomba in Top 8 of Ultimate, a video was played announcing Sparg0's sponsorship by FaZe Clan, with Sparg0 subsequently removing his hoodie to reveal a FaZe jersey.
  • The brackets for both Ultimate and Melee were won by players using characters exclusively from the Fire Emblem series.
  • The top 3 for Ultimate were the same players as the ones in Delfino Maza RETA 2022 (MkLeo, Glutonny and Sparg0) approximately two weeks prior.
  • This is the first GENESIS tournament where Mario was successfully utilized to win a set in Top 64, with ChuDat using the character in 2 of the 3 games he won against Ben (who typically counterpicks Ice Climbers with Luigi) to win the set.
  • With n0ne's 4th place finish, GENESIS 8 marks the first time a Captain Falcon player made Top 4 at a GENESIS tournament.
    • His winner's semifinals set with Jmook also marked the lowest seed combination (17th and 21st seeds, respectively) for a Top 8 set at a Melee supermajor.
  • During the Loser's Eighths set between Hungrybox and lloD in Top 8, lloD pulled every single possible item for Peach's Vegetable to spawn in-game.
  • Jmook's historic run all the way to 2nd place marks:
