SSBM: The moment that started a meme


Game: Super Smash Brothers Melee
Category: Mind Games
Beauty: 7/10
Opponents Skill: 10/10


SSBM is one of the fastest competitive fighters around. It is played at a mind-boggling pace with players individual APM reaching far beyond even Starcraft levels.

That is why when Hax decided to simply walk up next to Mango, the best Smash Brothers player to likely ever grace the game, and deliver a slow telegraphed attack that connects, the crowd goes wild. This moment spawned a meme in itself, starting with the phrase “YO, did he just walk up slowly and X?” filling Twitch Chats and Smash forums everywhere.
