NessFinesse is a 14 year old who is getting pretty good with Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but she seems to have chosen to use her powers for mischief as she recently posted some match footage in which she absolutely ruins the day of a Sephiroth player.

Considering there are now more than 80 characters to choose from in Smash Ultimate, not everyone you run into online is going to know the ins and outs of every last match up. That seems to have been the case here, as the Sephiroth is led on a wild chase for nearly six minutes (don't worry, the footage is sped up) that does not end well.

Steve joined the growing cast of Smash Ultimate characters back in October while Sephiroth did the same just last month, so these two figures have spent the least amount of time out in the wild. Though Steve hasn't been widely regarded as one of the game's best, he certainly has some tools that allow him give opponents a uniquely hard time.

We join in on the action with NessFinesse already up three stocks to one. The early part of this mismatched bout appears to have been fairly easy for the Minecraft character user, and so she decides to really draw out the latter half.

Instead of trying to finish off her opponent, Ness begins playing a game of keep away by using Steve's blocks to hang out just off the edge of the stage. Unwilling to try to jump off and battle down in no man's land, the Sephiroth repeatedly tries to use the extremely long range of Masamune, the character's sword, to poke his frustrating foe from a safe distance.

This cat and mouse dynamic lasts for a full five minutes and 45 seconds. You can view it all for yourself via the embed below. Let us know what you think the Sephiroth player should have done in the comments after you watch.
