Kyoz is a professional Super Smash Flash 2 player from New York, USA. He is widely considered the best Zero Suit Samus main in the competitive scene. He made his debut on the competitive scene in October, 2014, when he took second at Smash Island VI. He quickly gained a reputation within the online community for his skills with Marth and Zero Suit Samus. For the next three months, he utterly dominated almost every tournament he entered, until the #24 seed Lunary unexpectedly knocked him out of Winners Semis in Smash Island IX. This event caused a rivalry to form between the two players, and has brought about some of the most intense tournament sets of all time. Even with the rise of other high-level players and his own pseudo retirement, Kyoz continues to perform consistently well in tournaments. He is currently ranked 6th in the Flash Collective Rankings and 6th in the X Scoring System.

Playing style

Kyoz is well known for his ability to out-space other players in neutral with his knowledge of his characters' various disjointed moves. He also has a solid punish game, extensive combo knowledge, and has one of the best reading abilities in SSF2, which allows him to effortlessly punish most players before they are even aware of their mistakes. He is also known for his flashy/tricky play style which enables him to maneuver through his opponents with ease. Beyond that, his almost TAS DI helps make him such a difficult player to beat.
