– I am just running, bro.
I am running. No! – Dude, dude, relax.
Relax. – You’re absolutely
trashing me so far. ♪ (8-bit intro) ♪ – (FBE) Today, our reactors
are gonna be playing a few rounds of Super Smash
Brothers Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.
What they don’t know is that their opponent
will actually be a professional player
in Super Smash Brothers. Ken has been competing
professionally for over 15 years and is known as
the king of Smash. We’ll see just how well
your average gamer stacks up against
a real world pro. Well today, you guys
are going to be playing Super Smash Brothers.
– Yes, yes! – Okay, judging by
your reaction… – I don’t play too much Smash. – I did win a little
tournament on the React Channel last time,
so hopefully this is… – Oh no.
– This is that next level. – I definitely play
pretty well. – Maybe average.
– Okay, maybe average. All right. – Forewarning, I get
really competitive, so I’m really sorry
if I yell in your ear. Just let me know
to turn it down. – I mean, we have
headphones, so we’re good. – (FBE) This is actually Ken’s
first video at FBE. – Really?
– Yeah, it’s my first react. – Wow, I’m honored
to be a part of it. – I think you’re gonna
do great, man. Something about
beginner’s luck. – Beginner’s luck. – Let’s do this.
Who’s your main? – Who do you play?
– I do Game and Watch, Luigi.
– I like Ganon, Marth, Simon.
– Simon? Simon is so hard
to play as, I feel like. – I’ll try Simon.
Game and Watch. – Probably gonna go
with Corrin. I do pretty well
with Corrin. – I play the Castlevania
characters, I think or one of the Castlevania
characters. – My boy.
– Snake? – Yes.
Where’s my cheetah? There it is,
the cheetah print. – Ganondorf?
Why’d you pick Ganondorf? – I like Zelda games. – Are you kidding me?
– I like Ganondorf. You picked Pikachu? – I’m gonna go with Link
just because. – Classic Ganon versus Link
matchup. – Dude, Ganondorf
is way too strong and I’m low key
kinda scared. – May the best man win.
– Good. – All right. Oh, okay. – [Bleep]. See, I can’t–
Aw man, he’s gonna [bleep] put my ass
on a platter right now. – What the–
okay, hold on. “I’m not that good.”
He gets 105 damage in the first 10 minutes.
What? – How do you dodge
his projectiles? Oh, God.
You’re absolutely trashing me so far.
Oh, [bleep]. – Oh.
Come on, come on. Look, look, look.
You cannot do that to me. – I have a feeling he’s
letting on and he’s much better than he says. – I’m doing terrible
and he is– I only got two percent
of him. Move.
Get out of my way! Ah, [bleep]. – Excuse me, sir.
I did not– oh no. – Nice hit. – This guy’s good.
Ah, no. Went for it too hard.
I needed one. – You see how fast
he’s eliminating me? I’m trying to get
some good hits in, but it’s just not working. – Oh.
– Hey, I got one. I’m fine with that.
– Nice. – I’m not gonna let him
three stock me, if I can help it. – Ah, you got me.
– I just gotta try to bring it back now. – Come on.
Literally can’t do anything. – Oh my God.
Ah! – I can’t get you.
Come here. – Nah, nah, nah.
Stay away. Why?
If you don’t– oh my God. – I’m trying to move
and I can’t move. Oh my God.
What? I just got swept.
– I am destroying you, like you said.
I’m not gonna sugarcoat things. – Yeah, as long as he’s
not gonna be, “Yeah, I’ll pick a different–”
but I died in a minute. – What the–
– Oh. Okay, I accidentally hit
the wrong– I had butter fingers.
Butter fingers, man. Damn, that was good. – Ooh, that was cool.
I like seeing him. I’m not good with him,
’cause he’s such a zoner. – Yeah.
– All right. I have a feeling he plays
a lot more than I do and what he said.
So… – Why do you think that?
– ‘Cause you [bleep] are dominating.
– I mean, you took a stock so that wasn’t really
domination. – I got one, so I’m happy.
You’re still very good. – (FBE) We’re gonna have
you two play one more round, but first things first,
Michelle, did you find anything difficult about
that first round? – He’s really good. – Yeah, it’s like I really
couldn’t get a hit on him at all no matter what.
Did you play me? Was this rigged? – (FBE) Ken is actually
a professional Super Smash Brothers player.
– Dog, I freaking knew it. – That’s why my ass
got handed to me. There you go.
Oh my God. Nice to meet you.
– Nice to meet you. – Dude, you are amazing.
– Thank you. – I feel so good
that I held my own a little bit. – I started playing
when I was sixteen. – Okay.
– I started going to tournaments, won tournaments straight
for seven years straight and then people called
me King of Smash. – Cool, King of Smash? – (FBE) So, for this next round,
we’re gonna make it a little easier.
Michelle, you’re gonna be picking both characters
this time. – Okay, okay.
I swear to God, he’s still gonna
beat my ass though. I’m gonna stick with
my Pikachu. Wii Fit Trainer.
There you go. – I don’t think I’ve ever
played this character. – I can’t deviate from
my homie Snake. Let’s go ahead and give
you Isabelle, just because she looks
the least intimidating. – For me, I’m just gonna pick
Young Link. Then for Ken, I’m gonna pick–
let’s go with Pichu, just because that’s just
the smallest character and I’m assuming I’m
gonna be able to just hit him with a couple
strong ones. – I don’t really use Pichu,
but he’s actually a top five character in this game.
He’s fast. – I’m gonna pick Mario.
– Mario? – For you.
– Okay. – I feel like I know
his moveset pretty well, so I’m probably gonna
eat these words very soon. – Not a character that
I use very often, but I got some fundamentals. – I’m going to play as
Cloud. I’m gonna have you
play as– oh my God,
the pressure’s on. Ridley.
– Ridley? – I’ve heard that Ridley
is not as good professionally. – I don’t know how Ridley works,
so let’s see. – All right, cool.
I don’t believe you. I feel like you know
all the characters. – I really don’t play
all the characters. Good luck.
– Oh my God, I’m gonna need it. – I’m about to die.
Dude. He’s already pressing buttons
and the game hasn’t even started. Get away from me. – Come on.
Do your yoga skills on me. Go. – Oh no.
I’ve never seen that done before.
That was strategic. You set–
what is that? Oh.
No, no, no. – Oh, that’s so quick. – I’m still scared,
but I’m doing okay. – Whoo, come on.
Oh no. – Your landing is perfect.
I should have known. I should have known
that you were for real. You hustled me, man. – No, I–
okay. – Dude, dude, relax.
Relax. Ah! Okay, yeah, no.
This is terrible. I’m terrified. – Oh, good hit.
That probably killed me. Yeah.
I’m frustrated. – I should not
have done that. That was a mistake. – Come on.
If I can at least kill you once,
that would be great. No, damn it.
I celebrated too soon. – [Bleep].
I keep accidentally wanting to die.
Back up. – Oh my God. – Oh.
– Ah, how? How did you survive that? – Oh, you bitch.
He is really good He’s very good
at predicting. – Can I just stall
until the whole set of this is over?
Bro, relax, no. – I’m just running, bro.
I am running. No, no!
Oh, I got it. – Can you not?
Leave me alone. Yes, can one of these
land, please? No!
What in the hell? – Oh, what?
– Whoo! I killed him once.
I don’t care how this match goes now. – I gotta put you down once.
I gotta put it down once more. – I think my tactic
is just to stay up here. He got me while I was
electrocuting you. Dude, dude, relax.
Oh my God. – I feel like I’m
button mashing. Ah, good game.
– I feel good. – [Bleep] you. – I think I’m doing
way better this round than I did the last round.
Ah, no! I gotta eliminate him
at least once. Dude, he has 136 damage.
Ah, let’s go! No. – Ah.
– Let’s go! I eliminated him once.
– God dang it. – I can’t hit him.
Oh my God. I didn’t even know that move.
Good job. – Damn, man.
Ah, I [bleep] up. God, I [bleep] that up.
What an anticlimactic ending. – You did better against
my Belmont. – You SD’ed.
– I let him win. I’m just kidding.
See, that is crazy. He learned so quickly, too. – Come on, come on.
Come on. This is no fair.
That was great. – You got me once.
You got me once. – I killed him once.
That’s a victory for me. I loved this experience.
Thank you for being here. – Yeah, no.
It was fun. – Damn.
Ah, let’s go! I feel so intense.
I knocked him out once, right? How much more
can you ask when you’re playing
against a pro? – I mean, you picked Pichu.
He does damage to himself. – Don’t degrade my win.
There is some victory there. – (FBE) How do you think
FBE did overall in this gaming experience?
– I mean, some of them were above average for sure
and then some weren’t, but overall, I mean that’s not–
everyone had a good time and I think that’s all
that matters. – (FBE) Michelle, how do you
feel overall about your performance today?
– I feel defeated, but in a good way. – I feel weirdly put
in my place and also feel kinda good.
– Obviously, you played a lot of Smash.
I can see that. – Not as much as you,
that’s for sure. – He’s definitely played
a lot of Smash, I can see that.
He’s good. I mean, obviously he’s not
pro level. He won’t be able
to take a game off me, but a stock for sure, though.
– Yeah. – Yeah.
– Okay. – Yeah, he’s putting in
his hours. – He’s got skills,
I can see that. He’s got some skills.
– He started with skill and then he’s like,
“some skill.” – Needs a little more
practice. – Just gives me another level
of respect for pro gamers. These guys are like
real athletes. They’re not just people
that you pick up on the side of the street.
These are people that play and are really good at it,
so there’s a little bit more respect there. – Thanks for watching
FBE get destroyed in Smash Bros
on the React Channel. – Subscribe to see
what games we lose at next. – Bye-bye. – Hi, I’m Ken.
I’m a professional Smash Bros player
for Team Liquid. Thanks for FBE
for having me for their episode.
