Liquid|Hungrybox and T1|MkLeo will be facing off in a Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl first-to-5 set during a stream by Hungrybox. The stakes are high as this is a $100 money match.

While Hungrybox's experience with platform brawlers mostly comes from his time with Super Smash Bros. Melee, MkLeo made a name for himself in Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Despite MkLeo being incredibly dominant at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it can be argued that Hungrybox is at the advantage here since Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl takes a lot of cues from Melee.

Not surprisingly, Hungrybox's character of choice is Nigel Thornberry. Although the character doesn't have multiple jumps beyond the double jump, it's said that Nigel is a character that plays similarly to Melee's Jigglypuff.

Nigel's greatest strength is his down special. This move is extremely powerful, but has a small hitbox and a ton of recovery attached to it. Indeed, it's basically Jigglypuff's Rest special from the Super Smash Bros. series.

MkLeo has opted to play Patrick Star during this high stakes set. Patrick is effectively the grappler of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

Unlike the Bowser-cide or Ganon-cide of Super Smash Bros. series, Patrick's suicidal command grab sequences will kill the opponent first. This is something that Hungrybox will surely have to watch out for when both players are on their last stocks.

Watch the set as it unfolds in the stream below:
