Super Smash Bros. pro changes mind on his favorite character after getting annihilated

by Bill Cooney


Smash Bros. Ultimate has only officially been out since December 7 in the U.S., but legendary professional Smash player Gonzalo ‘ZeRo’ Barrios has already decided Sheik isn’t for him in the new game.


Ultimate is another big game released before the holiday season, and it’s undoubtedly the biggest game of the year for Smash fans.

Since the game came out, players are finally getting the chance to play through the extensive roster and decide which characters they enjoy, and which ones to avoid, which for ZeRo seems to be Sheik.


During an online match against a player as Luigi where ZeRo is playing Sheik, his opponent hits a Sweep Kick that sends the pro flying.

“Don’t tell me that kills me,” ZeRo begged before he was eliminated. “That killed me at 66? Aw Sheik, you’re made out of paper!”

“Nevermind, I don’t like Sheik anymore,” he proclaimed while cracking up. “Nope, nope, nope, no I am not doing that.”


As he got uncharacteristically wrecked, Twitch chat absolutely lost their minds at what they had just witnessed.

ZeRo has had some great success with Sheik in the past, but apparently, the pairing just wasn’t meant to be for Ultimate.
