Super Smash Bros. Melee has wrapped up from EVO 2017, but if you missed the show, we've got your back with highlights.

Over 1,400 entered this year's tournament, and the Melee gods were all present, along with other top competitors to put on a great show.

We get this started with one of the said gods, TSM|Leffen playing Fox against Gucci, a Captain Falcon player from Japan.

This is an early round 2 pools match, but you can see that Gucci manages to take a few stocks in short order.

Ultimately, Leffen would pull out the set though, and have a solid run through the bracket until near the very end of the tournament.

We also feature a clip of SS|Colbol living through a rest from Liquid|Hungrybox's Jigglypuff, and then not living. The final highlight features another great rest setup with a patented Hungrybox pop off.

We pick this up with top 8 action, as CLG|SFAT's Fox just make some deadly results, removing two of Lucky's stocks in short order. Alliance|Armada shows his execution is bloody outstanding, managing to bounce two turnips off of each other to edge guard FOX|Mew2King's Marth. We end this with Hungrybox's another rest setup on C9|Mango.

Hungrybox isn't the only one who has some fierce pop offs, as Mango shows he has plenty of emotion lurking below the surface as well, our next two highlights show. Finally, we have the tournament winning clip, as Armada gets in on the EVO pop off action.
