We have seen a wave of youth take over Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The youth movement has officially extended to Low Tier City 7.

GOL | Shadic is a 12-year-old who plays Corrin. On this day he sent NWA | Danbi — an older, more experienced player — to the losers side.

At 12 years young, Shadic might be the youngest player actually having some success in the Smash scene currently. He didn't allow his age be a hindrance on this day.

Using Corrin, a character not nearly as good as she was in the last game, he struggled with the matchup early. He turned up the heat after going down a couple stocks.

Shadic was down three stocks to one in the first game of the set. He would mount a comeback win, in which he'd turn and yell to the crowd.

After securing the set win, the crowd would rush the stage to congratulate the latest young player to make a splash in scene. Danbi is number one on the northwest Arkansas PR, and number two in the Arkansas overall PR.
