Smash Summit 7 was a national Super Smash Bros. Melee invitational tournament. It was the seventh installment of the Smash Summit series, and was held on November 15th-18th, 2018. Like previous Smash Summits, it was held at the Summit Gaming House, a private residence house in Los Angeles, California, and was closed to the general public.
These 11 players were invited by Beyond The Summit:
- Bananas (won the wild card slot by being the top non-invited finisher at The Big House 8)
- Axe (won the wild card slot by being the second top non-invited finisher at The Big House 8 after defeating AbsentPage 3-0 in a tiebreaker match)
- SFAT (won the wild card slot by being the top non-invited finisher at The Mang0: Homecoming)

- This is the first time Armada was not participating at a Smash Summit tournament, having announced his retirement from Melee singles a few months prior.
- This is also the first time Axe was not initially invited to Smash Summit, although he later qualified by being the second highest non-qualifier at The Big House 8.
- Smash Summit 7 is the first Summit tournament where a non-US smasher was not voted in, breaking the trend that started in the original Smash Summit.
- This is also the first Summit tournament to only have five people voted in, as opposed to the usual six, since Beyond the Summit invited eleven players.
