KTAR (Keitaro's Tournament at Rutgers) is a series of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U regional tournaments currently held in Somerset, New Jersey by Keitaro. The series originally only featured Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a game, but brackets for Super Smash Bros. Melee and Project M were added at KTAR 6 and KTAR 7, respectively. KTAR XI was the first to feature Smash Wii U in its line-up, and eventually became its only featured game in subsequent installments.

KTAR 4, KTAR 6, KTAR XVII, and KTAR XVIII were all intended to be the last tournament of the series, but more tournaments proceeded to be hosted subsequently anyway, with the series ultimately concluding with KTAR XX.
