Earlier today, a European Super Smash Bros. Ultimate online event known as the "Coca-Cola invitational" took place. Near the end of the tournament, Solary|Glutony and BC|Mr. R, top players, met in the losers finals.

Glutony is generally regarded as one of the best Wario users in the world. On the other hand, Mr. R is known for being a Chrom and Snake dual main. For this particular match, Mr. R was using Snake.

Near the end of the second match, it really seemed like Mr. R had a pretty healthy lead over Glutony. On their last stocks, Mr. R had only taken 18.2% damage while Glutony was on his last legs with 142.4% damage accrued.

When facing off against Wario, it's often said that you're essentially playing a two stock vs. three stock match. Wario's down special, the Wario Waft, is capable of taking stocks at ludicrously low percents and can be confirmed into with a variety of different attacks. It's certainly one of the best comeback tools in the game and pushes Wario into a top tier status in the current meta.

As such, both players were basically just one hit away from losing the match. Glutony would eventually land a hit with Wario's side special, the Wario Bike.

After successfully hitting Snake, Glutony jump cancelled the Wario Bike and repositioned himself backwards. While Wario was no longer riding the bike, it still acted as an active projectile.

Upon the second hit, Snake was strangely sent towards Wario instead of away from him. Based on Glutony's positioning and readiness to pick up the combo, it seemed like Glutony knew exactly what was about to happen...
