Low-Tier city is hailed as Texas’ largest competitive Smash Bros tournament, bringing pros from across the country to compete for the title of LTC champion - but sometimes, the competition can get out of hand, as seen during one player’s hilarious on-stage popoff.

Low-Tier City 7's Day Two Singles matches kicked off with a hilarious moment between two players on stream - one of whom had a surprising plan in store in the middle of their set.

Mii Swordfighter main ‘Mystic’ had just taken a game off of their opponent ‘8Bitman’ when they randomly pulled out a bottle of Elmer’s school glue from their pocket, much to the crowd’s confusion.

A bout of Smash Bros Ultimate took a wacky turn when a player decided to pull out some Elmer's school glue on stage.

What happened next was nothing short of jaw-dropping: Mystic squirted the glue directly into their mouth, casually guzzling a good portion of the stuff before triumphantly holding up the bottle for the audience to see.

“Is that actual, literal Elmer’s glue?” one commentator asked. “Packaged $5.99? Oh my god!”

While some onlookers were understandably worried for the Smash player’s stomach, Mystic assured that their innards were in good hands, confirming that the glue was non-toxic and thus safe to consume (although we obviously don’t recommend this method of using crafting materials).

The hilarity didn’t end there: Mystic’s opponent, 8Bitman, admitted that he didn’t even know the glue-guzzling was actually happening, likely being too focused on their ensuing match.

“I actually didn't even notice lmao,” he said of the incident.

This wouldn’t be the first time someone has eaten glue on stream, either: popular Twitch streamer ‘Mayahiga’ similarly ate glue during a broadcast just a week prior to Mystic’s LTC debacle, although she didn’t seem as hyped about her decision to do so.

“It's on the roof of my mouth, ew," Maya said, struggling to keep a straight face after putting only a tiny bit of the stuff on the tip of her tongue.

While the Smash Bros scene is often the brunt of glue-eating jokes across the fighting game community, Mystic took the roasting to the next level, making for an unforgettable moment that will forever be recorded in the annals of Low Tier City history.
