The Best EVO Sets in Smash Wii U History

Due to its older brother Melee having been a veteran to EVO by the time it came out, Smash Wii U was automatically added to the EVO lineup for both 2015 and 2016, though it was not given a Sunday slot either year. Here's some of the best moments we've seen from the prestigious tournament up to this point.

5. ZeRo vs. Mr.E - EVO 2016

Not a set with an outcome that anybody could have predicted, Eric "Mr.E" Weber's 2-1 victory over Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios was not only an incredible upset, but it also set the stage for ZeRo's eventual losers bracket run that wouldn't end until the final bracket.

4. Nairo vs. Ranai - EVO 2016

A match that happened far earlier in the bracket than many people thought it should have, Nairoby "Nairo" Quezada's set against Ryuto "Ranai" Hayashi was a very tense set that ended with Ranai remaining in the winners bracket in a relatively surprising upset.

3. Kameme vs. Ally - EVO 2016

Especially for non-Japanese fans of the game, Takuto "Kameme" Ono carrying Mega Man to a second place finish at EVO was a run full of upsets. The only thing that wasn't an upset, though, was Elliot "Ally" Carroza managing to take the entire tournament. Regardless of which lens you view the set through, it was an epic finish to EVO 2016.

2. ZeRo vs. Kameme - EVO 2016

Remember the aforementioned losers run that ZeRo went on at EVO 2016? It ended in losers finals against Kameme, who was also mentioned to have had a massive run to second place. Beating the worlds best player too just makes it all the more incredible, especially after ZeRo's losers run.

1. Mr. R vs. ZeRo - EVO 2015

Take a look at the game count at the end of ZeRo's destructive win over Ramin "Mr. R" Delshad. 3-0. That's the part of this that matters. Throughout the entirety of EVO 2015, ZeRo lost a grand total of zero games-- an achievement that's almost never been done before.
