Hungrybox is the Luckiest man in Melee

He’s ranked number 1 in the world right now. People either hate him or love him. Well now those feelings might have been enhanced further; as he showed that he might be the luckiest man playing Super Smash Brothers Melee today.

In Super Smash Brothers Melee, the “Yoshi’s Story” level has a cloud with a smiley face (called Randall) on it that travels around the bottom half of the stage in a pattern. Hungrybox plays Jigglypuff, and he uses a move called “rest” that requires him to make direct contact with his opponent. Once he uses the attack, Jigglypuff falls asleep on the spot. So if he uses it off stage, Jigglypuff would fall off the stage. That is what you need to know to understand what is happening in this 8 second clip.

You didn’t hear it in that clip. But afterwards, one of the announcers say: “Did he know?” This is not impossible, but it is highly unlikely. As it is written on Smashpedia:

Randall does not appear for the opening ten seconds of a given battle and emerges on the right-hand side of Yoshi’s Story immediately thereafter, meaning that the position of the cloud is consistent and predictable, not random.


But in the heat of battle, could it be the Hungrybox’ mind works at such a high level that he’s also counting seconds for Randall to appear? Even so, he couldn’t have been planning to carry his opponent over to that side of the stage and, predict that he’ll fall exactly there, tech the fall and get up at that precise location.

What’s more impressive is his complete lack of visible reaction. He is stone cold. He’s got his game face / murder face on as if it’s just another day at the office. Love him or hate him, the results don’t lie.
