Hi, I'm Ken (better known in the Smash community as MetaKing or #20MK | MetaKing), and I'm a contributor to this wiki, and a dedicated Meta Knight main with a Lucina co-main.

My first experience with Smash as a whole was when I was at a friend's place when I was 4 years old. She had a GameCube and a copy of Super Smash Bros. Melee. While I was only familiar with a few of the characters at the time (eg. Mario, Kirby, Pikachu, etc.), I was breath taken by the number of playable characters from different franchises all in one game. The first character I picked was Marth, as blue (is) my favorite color and I thought he looked "cool" and "powerful". As you can see, that has stuck to this day lol. :)

My own household experience with Smash began two years later, where at the time I only had my Wii and a few games to play with. Until one day at a yard sale I saw a copy of Melee, two Wavebird Controllers (I eventually got Wired Controllers), and a Memory Card for sale. Ever since that day, I knew that the series would be with me for a very long time.

As stated above, I'm a very dedicated Meta Knight player because of my childhood experiences with The Kirby Series, and will probably continue to play him no matter what Buff, Nerf, controversy, Tier list, or player opinion. Recently though, I've been finding it harder to solo-main MK continuously like I use to, not to mention playing him for so long is also starting to wear on me, to the point of there being days where I just don't feel like playing him at all, and end up playing other characters instead. So, while I'll definitely still be maining him, and he will likely be the character I use primarily in tournaments, I'll also be trying to dedicate my time to other characters, to see if any can relieve my "boredom", so to speak, of MK, and so far, it seems to be working out well with the likes of Lucina, Roy and Captain Falcon.

On the subject of friends, here are my other main social media accounts:

  • YouTube channel, where I post my own replays of random matches/moments like this ;).
  • Twitter (@20mk_metaking) Feel free to give me a follow; pretty quiet now, though.
  • Instagram (@20mk_metaking) (Shamefully lol) more active here than on twitter for the sole fact of none of my school friends in fact use Twitter XD. Mainly consists of stuff I draw, figure pictures, or perlers I make. Feel free to take a look if you're interested (for whatever reason :P).
  • You can also find me on Discord (20MK | MetaKing (Ken)#5224), though I'd prefer it if you tell me who you are via Direct Message before I accept any friend requests so that I know who to trust. Just DMing me about Smash and related is fine, but no personal questions or threats please.

Random facts from me[edit]

  • My favorite characters are (as if it weren't obvious enough) Meta Knight and Lucina. The fact that they're both my favorite color (blue), and wield swords is literally perfect for someone like me, as well as me loving them in their origin games/series. The fact that they both wear masks though is purely coincidental XD.
  • It just so happens that my name is Ken and I play Red Marth MarthHeadRedSSBM.pngMarthHeadRedSSBB.pngMarthHeadRedSSB4-U.pngMarthHeadRedSSBU.png... Sounds familar right? lol
    • Besides this, I typically use default and/or blue Alts for characters I play (some characters are exceptions though, such as PichuHeadWhiteSSBU.pngFalcoHeadBlackSSBU.pngFoxHeadRedSSBU.png and the aforementioned Red Marth.
  • My favorite smasher overall is Nairo.
  • My favorite non-Smash games are Kirby Super Star (Ultra) and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
  • I am left-handed; which makes me pretty decent at movements of my control stick on average relative to most, but hinders my button-mashing when excessive mashing is required (notably with Luigi).
  • My most wanted characters for Ultimate are/were Bandana Waddle Dee and Alucard (respectively), with the latter being (unfortunately ;-;) given an Assist Trophy status, and with me still having hope for the former as one of the four remaining DLC slots.
  • I once experienced a glitch in Project M 3.02 with my friend, AuraSoul in Boss Battles Mode, where his Mewtwo started out immensely tiny for some reason and stayed like that until he died on the final round. Unfortunately this only happened once and I was unable to record any video proof (wish I did, as I'm curious to know if something like this has happened to anyone else).
  • I met the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet at a Retro Gaming Expo in New Westminster.
  • I Got Kirby Triple Deluxe one day before it officially came out in North America, and NO it is not a Japanese copy (Strangely I found it in a Real Canadian SuperStore of all places?)
  • I make perler bead sprite art often. You can see some of the stuff I've made and new things on my social media accounts if you're interested.

Amiibo I have[edit]

  • Italics are names

About my mains[edit]

  • How high the character is indicates how much I generally like and/or play them.
Super Smash Bros. (Inactive; may be outdated and/or informal reasonings)
IntenseDifficulty.pngMains I've never had an interest in playing any other character besides Falcon as a primary main, and he is the easiest character to play as in my opinion (besides recovery). I really don't see Smash 64 as something I'll play truly competitively due to its higher learning curve compared to the other games, so I really only play it in friendlies, but Falcon is always the character I turn to. Before I unlocked Falcon as a kid, Kirby and Fox were my mains, and decided to keep Kirby as primary secondaries after I decided to main Falcon, though Kirby ended up being a dual-main with Falcon, even if I'm inactive with Smash 64 at this point XD.
VeryHardDifficulty.pngSecondaries I generally liked playing as Luigi as a kid, and even though some consider him the worst character (which, now that I think of it, he is), I would always play Luigi if Im having a good time.
Super Smash Bros. Melee (Inactive; may be outdated and/or informal reasonings)
IntenseDifficulty.pngMains Before I got Melee for myself, I played the game at a friend's house, and believe it or not, Marth was the first Smash Bros. character I ever played! After I got Melee, I immediately unlocked Marth first. After I started to learn the game competitively, and learned about all the advanced techniques and tier lists, I knew I made a good choice of choosing Marth.

I don't recall how I got to main Falco, but he seems to fit my playstyle well, and I felt like I can learn the advanced fundamentals like Mulitishining from him, so here he is.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Inactive; may be outdated and/or informal reasonings)
IntenseDifficulty.pngMains I feel like if I'm ever playing someone new I always have to explain why I main him: Quote- "I main Meta Knight not because he's the best character (I didn't even know he was for a while) I main him because of my childhood with the Kirby series, and because he is my favourite video game character!" (I cannot tell you how many times I've had to say that!) Anyway, Meta Knight in Brawl was really fun for me because he could do anything I wanted for a character, and as a result, fit my playstyle perfectly. It was like I was meant to play him.
VeryHardDifficulty.pngSecondaries Similar reasons to Melee; good (Brawl) fundamentals such as DACUS, Gattling Combos, and what most I know refer to as "Brawl BS", Chain grabbing and Camping :P XD.

During the short ban on Meta Knight, I needed to find a main. Then I remembered that if Meta Knight wasn't a character for me, Dedede was my go to guy. I really like his playstyle and the things he can do, like his amazing recovery and his infamous chain grab (I swear, I've made like so many players rage-quit just from that!) And BTW, landing that rare forward smash, is ooooo soooo satisfying! At first, I hated some of the changes the did to Marth from Melee, such as the reduced range and nerfed Down air, but after a while I gotten to like this Marth too, and while he is no longer my true main, he is my go to secondary.

Super Smash Bros. 4(*Incomplete; Marth, Roy and Falco are currently missing their descriptions*)
IntenseDifficulty.pngMains I defiantly planned on maining Meta Knight again after he was announced, but during the time of October 2014-May 2015, I was honestly SCARED about his viability at the time, feared that I would really have to work myself off in tournament if he were to be considered Low Tier. But, as time went on, all of that changed for the better. After MkLeo's win against Mr. R at Smash Factor 4, I knew... "Meta Knight is (sort of) back!" Ever since then, I've gotten decent results in tournament with his and he has become the character I am most recognized with around the players.

Before the game came out, of all the newcomers, Lucina was the only one I had any real interest in maining, due to my experience with Fire Emblem Awakening and her being similar to Marth, and when Smash 3DS came out in NA, I didn't think the character was as bad as others were saying she was, and decided to keep the character despite others' opinions. Another reason was because of Marth (who overtime, I began to dislike watching and playing as in Smash 4, due to his playstyle being rather repetitive in my opinion; constant Tipper F-air spacing and tippers in general started to get boring for me to watch and play as) being my main in Melee (this was when I was still active in Melee BTW), I thought Lucina's less precise playstyle wouldn't affect how I played Marth in Melee, and it seemed to work well with me. Overtime, the character's buffs turned her from my favourite character to play as other than Meta Knight, to that and my key secondary. I'm always one to choose Lucina over Marth! XP

VeryHardDifficulty.pngSecondaries Not someone I would necessarily pull out in tournaments seriously (not that he's bad, far from it, it's that I feel my Falcon is nowhere as strong as other Falcons in BC, which there are A LOT of), but he's hella fun to play, and you can really mess someone up if you get a good string with him going, especially on Smashville XD.

Fox is a rather interesting case compared to the others. I only started playing him during the start of Summer 2018 (when Smash 4 was practically on its death bed), and only did it because some of my friends had been recommending him to me for a while before then. When I stared playing and learning his combos, movement, neutral, etc. I said to myself out loud "Why didn't I pick up this character in 2015?" XD. My Fox is not perfect by any means, hell no lol. But I feel like I'm fairly competent with him on a "good day" so to speak.

I always found Luigi a fun character to play (as), so I'd been planning to have him as a secondary for a long time, but like many, was reluctant because of my inability to mash perfectly (my mashing is pretty mediocre, mainly because my right hand isn't my dominant one (yes I'm left-handed :P), so its very difficult for me than it would be for others). If my mashing was better than it is now, I would've picked him up a long time ago. Despite this, he eventually became a secondary anyway, because "who doesn't love getting grabs as Luigi... I hate getting grabbed by Luigi tho XD".While I was very reluctant at first (cuz literally almost ever player in BC has a Cloud in some way now (no joke, Doubles is a mess now XD)), I finally gave in since he's fun to play, and if I ever struggle in doubles, my teammate and I know what to do... ;) XD

*To be Added*.*To be Added*.*To be Added*.After the buffs it got, a few of my friends actually recommended that I pick up Mewtwo as a secondary, and while it took me a while to get use to it, I finally think I've got a hang of how to play it (I got (a bit) of practice from Mewtwo dittos with AuraSoul, and now, I pretty much never lose the ditto against him XD).

Kirby is a character who I always enjoyed watching and who I would always root for in tournament (if he wasn't against MK or Lucy that is :l), and I loved his combo game and Kirby as a character himself. So, one day, out of sheer boredom, I randomly decided to pick up the character, and found him lots of fun to use. On the downside, he's super light, and his range and approach are pretty meh worthy, but since I play MK, I'm use to that kind of stuff :P.Originally, despite the character's nerfs (which I didn't notice for a while) I still loved playing as Dedede, and his reputation in Vancouver is also strong because of Big D, and I use to see him as the most underrated character in the game, but, after gaining more experience, and from what Big D sees in him, I've excepted overtime that Dedede is one of the worst characters in the game, and, I began to play him far less than I use to as a result. Despite this, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't fun to pull out the character again every now and then for some fun and hype moments, because playing right with Gordo traps can be something worth saving a replay for lol.Similar reasons as Falcon TBH, except he's not fast lol.

Project M (Inactive; may be outdated and/or informal reasonings)
IntenseDifficulty.pngMains While I mained the character before this, during the Summer of 2014, I went to Anime Revolution, an event Vancouver has annually, and played a TON of Project M friendlies, of course, as Meta Knight. I was considered the best Meta Knight at that event, and really got me confident on my potential in tournaments.

Same as Melee.

VeryHardDifficulty.pngSecondaries Under the influence of Big D (who I met at Anime Revolution 2014... And got bodied by...) I decided to Keep Dedede around as a strong secondary. One of my favorite versions of Roy ever. Project M did a great job with buffs that actually matter to the character.

Same as Melee.
