“Fray” won Smash Remix Singles at Frame Perfect Series 3: Online on November 6. Remix is a mod of Smash 64 that introduces characters and stages from later Smash games. This was the game’s first appearance in Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman’s online tournament series.
Fray kicked off the bracket with a pair of 2-0 wins over Sebastian “Seberster” S. and Brice “Dad” Howard. Then, he faced off against Jonathan “The Crimson Chin” Henson. Fray won that set 2-1, and advanced into winners side of top 8 as a result.
In the top 8, Fray had to overcome Smash 64’s Brody brothers. Not only did he succeed in doing so, but he defeated them commandingly. Fray earned 3-0 victories against both Jason “Darkhorse” Brody and Josh Brody, and thus advanced into Grand Finals.
Fray’s final opponent of the Frame Perfect Series 3: Online Smash Remix bracket was Jaime “JaimeHR” Hernández Rodríguez. Though JaimeHR beat him 3-1 in the first set, Fray retaliated with a 3-0 victory of his own to win the tournament. Notably, their final set showed off Wario and Dark Samus, two of the special Remix characters.
