The Battle of the Five Gods day 2 has wrapped up, and today we were treated to an astonishing day of Super Smash Bros. Melee action.


So, tonight we'd like to share with you some of our favorite moments from the tournament day.

Westballz defeats PPMD

We start our highlights out with the bout between Tempo|Westballz and EG|PPMD.

The Falco player pulled off something quite remarkable today -- defeating one of the five Smash gods. Not only that, but Westballz's victory made it so that PPMD was the only one of the five not to finish 1st in his group.

Pikachu used Volleyball! It's super effective.

Tempo|Axe went up against C9|Mango earlier today, and the Pikachu player demonstrated some very impressive techniques with the small, electrical rodent.

Deep into their set, Axe managed to catch Mango with a quick grab, attempting a chain grab but failing. That didn't stop him from trying again and succeeding right after.

In the stock that followed, Axe hit Mango with an amazing ledge guard sequence.

However, despite these excellent displays of Pikachu play, Mango still emerged victorious.

A scramble off-stage

in the match between PG|Wobbles and GC|SilentWolf, an intense battle off-stage took place.

Even though SilentWolf's Fox had a significant percentage lead, Wobbles' Ice Climbers managed to knock him off the platform and secure the set by knocking his opponent low enough to make Fox's up+B miss the ledge.

PPMD's mean spike

Our favorite moment definitely took place in the 4th game between PPMD's Falco and PG|Plup's Sheik.

With only one stock left, PPMD used some slick maneuvers to combo Plup, knock him off stage, then land a devastating spike near the ledge.

The moral victory

Plup opted to use Samus in his last game against SilentWolf's Fox, and it turned out to be a great choice.

Landing a big combo shortly after SilentWolf touched down from regeneration, Plup looked to close out the set with a hard-hitting charge shot. Though it looked like the Fox player was finished, he managed to recover just in time to reflect it back and blast Plup's projectile right back at him.

Amazing Wobble by Wobbles

And what would an amazing day of Melee be without a godlike Wobble from Wobbles himself?
