Wizzrobe finds justice with Captain Falcon by winning Smash'N'Splash 5's Super Smash Bros. Melee event and makes top 8 at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Not even the 'gods' could stop this man

Smash'N'Splash 5 was a major tournament that concluded this weekend that captivated fans of both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Smash Bros. Melee. In total, there were nearly 1,600 registered to compete in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and 800 entrants for Melee.

One player that managed to stand out during both competitions was Wizzrobe (unsponsored player). He competed with great success at this super major. Not only did he come in first place for Super Smash Bros. Melee, but he also managed to make top eight for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

What's particularly amazing about Wizzrobe's play at Melee was the fact that he did it with only Captain Falcon. Although Captain Falcon is considered to be a good character, we haven't seen this particular fighter make first place at a super major that involved "the Gods of Melee" for a number of years now.

There's no doubt that competing against top tiers like Fox, Falco, Jigglypuff, Sheik, and Marth is an uphill battle for the F-Zero racer. Despite this, Wizzrobe made it work while taking out a number of notable names in the process.

Even more awesome is the fact that he's been spending a lot of time juggling Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well. We haven't really seen a Smash player make top eight in two separate Smash titles since the era of FOX|Mew2King with regards to Brawl and Melee.

In order to make it into the top eight of Melee, Wizzrobe had to take on Leffen's Fox. There's a reason why Leffen is often referred to as the "Godslayer." This man is no slouch.

With an epic Knee of Justice (Captain Falcon's forward aerial), Wizzrobe ended up sending TSM|Leffen to the losers bracket with a 3-1 victory.

Following this, Wizzrobe would then have to face off against VGBC|aMSa — also known as the best Yoshi player in the world for Super Smash Bros. Melee. Once again, Wizzrobe would advance with a 3-1 victory.

Wizzrobe ended up being matched up against arguably the best player in the world at Super Smash Bros. Melee at this moment. That player was none other than Liquid|Hungrybox.

Throughout the set Wizzrobe continued to call out HungryBox's attempts at crouch cancelling and low profiling with raw Knee of Justice attacks. Eventually he'd take HungryBox down with yet another 3-1 victory.

HungryBox would get his chance at a rematch against Wizzrobe after eliminating Leffen in the losers finals. Once again, Wizzrobe would prevail over HungryBox by taking the set with a 3-1.

You can tell Wizzrobe was excited based on his pop-off.

Of course, Wizzrobe's achievements at Smash'N'Splash don't just end with his victory at Super Smash Bros. Melee. He also managed to make top eight at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate while using Wolf.

Once more, Wizzrobe was able to take down a top player during his run. TSM|Tweek might be able one of the best players at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate right now, but even he was able to prevent Wizzrobe from sending him to the losers bracket.

After getting sent to the losers bracket by Ally, Wizzrobe would then eliminate MVG|ScAtt on his way to top eight.

Unfortunately for Wizzrobe and fans, he was unable to win both tournaments. Wizzrobe would eventually be eliminated by Liquid|Dabuz and his Olimar.

Although Dabuz took the set with a 3-0 victory, all three games were extremely close. Wizzrobe proved that he was capable of hanging with the best players of both titles.
