Biography[edit]

Kira is known for his proficiency in the Sheik ditto, where he consistently chaingrabs whereas most other Sheik mains would agree to not chaingrab each other. He also runs the SSBM Tutorials YouTube channel, where he posts instructional videos on several aspects of the game, including techniques, characters, and mentality. His breakout performance was at I'm Not Yelling!, where he finished 5th after defeating Laudandus, Sherigami, Shroomed, HugS, and KirbyKaze. He began playing Fox with the intent to main him in the second half of 2015, and mains the character in place of Sheik. He was ranked 15th on the SoCal Power Rankings and was ranked 86th on SSBM Rank 2016.
