Tournament:Smash Summit (series)
The Smash Summit series, starting with Smash Summit in 2015, is a series of invitationals focusing on Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Typically, a Summit features 16 players and spans several days, with singles and doubles on the final days. The first days feature various side events focusing on its main Smash game as well as other games, in addition to other activities (such as Mafia), all of which is streamed.

In Smash Summit 5 and Smash Summit 6, 8 players were invited in, 2 made it through qualifiers, and 6 were voted in. In Smash Summit 7 and Smash Summit 8, 8 players were invited in, 3 made it through qualifiers, and 5 were voted in. At Smash Summit 9, 8 players were invited in, 5 made it through qualifiers, and 5 were voted in, making it the first time a Smash Summit having 18 players instead of 16.
A summit for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was held on March 8th-10th, 2019, the first Smash Summit outside of Melee. In Smash Ultimate Summit, 6 players were invited in, 5 made it in through qualifiers, and 5 were voted in.
