Luigi defeats every Super Smash Bros. Ultimate computer controlled character by doing absolutely nothing

You might be familiar with the "Luigi wins by doing absolutely nothing" meme that originated because of a series of videos uploaded that depicted Luigi defeating computer controlled opponents at Mario Party mini games without any player input.

This is possible in many games that feature Luigi as a playable character. As you can imagine, many have tried to do this for the Super Smash Bros. series as well.

Each computer controlled slot can be set to a level between one and nine. One is the easiest while nine is the hardest.

Omega Tyrant has apparently spent over a month gathering footage of pitting Luigi against all 75 characters while controlled by a level nine opponent. This is a 1v1, one stock match with no items.

Essentially, the point here is to show how stupid the game's artificial intelligence can be. There are many situations where a match just features a character battling with the stage hazards. Other times, they just spontaneously kill themselves for no apparent reason.

Poor Lucas couldn't even last a full five seconds against Luigi's mysterious power of nothingness on Melee's Jungle Japes stage. He couldn't even touch Luigi. Ironically enough, he managed to trigger the red screen freeze at 0% damage thanks to the Kremling stage hazard.
