This clip of HungryBox against a random player on the Magicant stage is a perfect example of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's faulty preferred rules

There are plenty of stages that are just not meant for 1v1 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate while items are turned off. This is why there is only a small percentage of stages that are legal during tournament play.

Unfortunately, there are those that intend to win through the cheesiest of methods in their quest to obtain GSP. Even worse, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Quickplay mode actually allows them to do this.

While most of us would prefer to play on only Final Destination and Battlefield (since there's no way to select the other tournament legal stages), some will intentionally set it so that any stage will randomly be selected thanks to their preferred rules.

Recently, Liquid|HungryBox came across a Donkey Kong user on the... Magicant stage. This particular stage is banned from tournaments due to its tendency to encourage "circle camping" (running away / not interacting).

Being that HungryBox had a considerable lead over the other player, they then opted to do exactly this. Remember that Quickplay only acknowledges the winner of Sudden Death as the ultimate winner of the match. Even though HungryBox was winning, he was forced to approach.

Hilariously, the Donkey Kong user seemed very familiar with the "Magicant meta" and pulled off some rather ridiculous sequences. Be advised of the NSFW language and volume featured at the end of the clip.
