He was a blue fuzz of apprehension as—who else?—Falco, and when a rug was built opposite him he’d switch to Marth or Fox.
The brief version? Without so most as a judgment uttered, he won a whole tournament, hardly even violation a persperate until a finals. When he won, people bellowed for him to, “take it off,” though he merely offering a thumbs-up before bursting into a cloud of little blue birds and rocketing out a window presumably leaving.
Some people, while examination a tournament’s stream, were in pristine awe:
Others speculated that he competence be a famous Smash player in disguise, a shark swimming among guppies for giggles:
