Remembering Melee

Check out the changes that are coming to The Turnip in the next few weeks!

Super Smash Brothers Melee, age 17, formerly of NTSC and PAL, passed away at St. Luke’s International Hospital on December 7th, 2018 – only two hours after being stabbed by its just-born great grandchild, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.

Melee was born on November 21st, 2001, the only child of Super Smash Brothers 64 and Masahiro Sakurai. Melee was a graduate of SSBMTutorials, and its degree in technical computer programming and design eventually took it away from its home in Chiyoda, Tokyo to travel the world, before returning back to its hometown to be buried. Melee is most notable for its inspiring work at children’s parties.

Melee had a deep love for family and most enjoyed being visited by 20+ year-olds in the nursing home. Melee loved travelling and visited over 3/4 of all countries in the world by age 5. It was also an avid TSM and Cloud9 fan.

Melee is survived by its father, Super Smash Brothers 64, its younger step-brother Kirby Air Ride, its child Super Smash Brothers Brawl, its grandchild Super Smash Brothers for Wii U, and its murderous great-grandchild Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.

Family and friends may post “F” and “RIP” to the /r/SmashBros subreddit, condolence videos to YouTube, and condolence posts to Twitter on December 9th, 2018 from 4-7 p.m. Melee’s rite of burial will be celebrated on Friday, December 14th, 2018 on Smashboards, with interment to follow at the Aoyama Cemetery.
