Hi! I am Serpent King, a Melee player somewhere between casual and competitive skill. I am also an administrator of this site...as you probably know by now if you are reading this.

Aside from Smash, I also play Armagetron Advanced competitively, and I am positively obsessed with the Zelda series. I know a fair bit about Pokémon too, but I do not play competitively, because I kinda suck.

Outside of gaming, I am working on an Associate's Degree in Computer Software Development. I know several programming languages at this point, including C++, JavaScript, and Visual Basic. I also know HTML and CSS well. I have an understanding of how computers work internally (although I do not build desktops), meaning that I know how data flows through a system, and through what means. I understand binary, hexadecimal, and octal values and can convert between them.

I am also minoring in Calculus and Mathematics. I also enjoy doing entirely pointless studies in mathematics, discovering new things that others overlook. I have posted a few of my findings here.

I have a variety of nicknames that I will respond to, the most obvious being "Serpent", "King", "Serp", and "SK", but I also respond to my Marth name, "Mars". On Tron, I use "*~>King" as my tag, and I had "Serpent" as an alias. When I started Smash (actually, that's a lie; I started Smash before Tron, but I sucked), I decided to mash them together and thus, "Serpent King" was born. Luigi being a perfect fit for that was a sheer coincidence.

Smash Opinions[edit]

  • Smash Bros. games lineups, starting from favorite, ending on least favorite: Melee, Smash 4, Brawl, Project M, Smash 64
  • The tier list/matchup table does hold some weight, but should not be the end-all source for picking a character
  • Wavedashing is totally optional. Yes, it can provide a decent approach (sometimes), and it can be used to make some good combos, but that doesn't mean that it needs to be used to win.
  • Sandbagging is NOT when someone picks a low tier character in tournament because they want to have a little fun every now and again
  • Melee Fox players who constantly waveshine ruin the game somewhat. Play how you want, but ehhh. I'll never do it.
  • FOX IS NOT THE ONLY CHARACTER WORTH ANYTHING IN MELEE
  • Edge-hogging is OK, except against grapple recoveries in Brawl
  • It's the Internet: If you post a smash video online, you are going to get "You suck" a lot. Just let it roll off the back.

Melee Skill List[edit]

Neutral-Short Range[edit]

Probably my strongest area. I have a really fast reaction time (from playing Tron), but sometimes I suffer in reacting in the right way. My combo game is tight-ish, and my combos are very adaptable to DI. Sometimes I will over-predict hitstun, but most of the time, I am on point. I am also uncanny with reads.

Neutral-Long Range[edit]

I suffer here. I have issues with camping, both doing it and dealing with it. I play up close and personal most of the time, tending to stay away from projectiles (except for the edge guard).

Punish[edit]

Decent here. I am good at baiting, especially with Marth and Luigi.

Edge Guard[edit]

Mmm. Needs work, definitely. I train with computer players a lot, and with human players quite a bit less (about a 1:15 ratio or so...), and well...we all know how good the AI is at recovering... This prevents any good practice I have off stage. I can do edge guards on and off stage, but any good recovery may trip me up.

Recovery[edit]

Same story. The AI will not Edge Guard, except for standing on the edge of the stage, so I am good at that, but...anything away from the stage may make me panic, as I will not know what to do.

Tech Skill[edit]

Skill Competency
Wavedash Able to do it, not able to easily use it for much other than fundamental spacing, and some attacks.
L-Cancel Able to do it, but I miss it a lot. I only try for it in a handful of attacks (Link's U/DAir, Marth's DAir, etc).
Dash Dance Able to do it, getting better at using it as a mindgame.
Floor Tech Good at this, rarely miss it. Sometimes I'll accidentally roll into danger though.
Ceiling & Wall Tech I mainly play FD, so...I can get it sometimes if I see the attack coming. If I do a Wall Tech, it always ends up being a Wall Jump Tech, followed by a NAir or FAir for some reason...
Ledge Tech If I get really freaking lucky.
DI Making progress on this! I am no master yet (at all), but I have a firmer grasp on how to use DI to escape combos and live longer.
Crouch Cancel I can get this if I was trying to do a DTilt before being launched...Something tells me that doesn't count though.
Ledge Drop Attack Depends on the character: Luigi, Marth and Sheik are excellent at this. All my other characters have issues with it.
Power Shield With projectiles, I am actually really good at this. With physical attacks, I am decent I suppose.
Proper Roll I have limited myself in rolls. I only use them to attempt to get behind a character, and I won't use it at all with certain characters (I'm looking at you Samus, you rolling fiend, you).
Proper Spot Dodge For grabs mostly. Really good at this, especially with Link. Trips a lot of people up because it's unusual.
Meteor Cancel Only if I get really lucky.
Drop Cancel I did it once accidentally against an AI with Marth's DAir. I ended up getting KO'd (I was at high percent).
Jab Cancel I don't understand this...
Chain Grab I choose not to do this.
SHFFL Sometimes, if I can land that L-Cancel.

Trivia[edit]

  • I used to main Link in Melee. I stopped using him for a while and I lost my touch with him. So I chose the other green crusader: Luigi. Because who wouldn't choose Luigi, he's awesome.
  • I once thought it was possible to hit the jumbotron in Pokemon Stadium when getting Star KO'd.
  • I spent the better half of the debug menu project not knowing that the R button allows you to scroll through menu options faster (it was a slow start...).
  • I spent 3 days getting all the images I needed from Poke Floats for Debug menu (SSBM)/Stage data. I do not wish to repeat.
  • Whenever someone calls Mango the GOAT, I always think of the goats from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
  • When playing Tron once, I murdered 5 other players with a single turn. Then immediately smacked into the rim out of surprise.
  • The original idea for my "Serpent" alias in Tron came from Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets
