Since you asked, I'll give the details.
I think some people have the wrong idea about this whole thing. This was an event where copious amounts of drugs were being consumed. Everyone was drunk and high. Everyone that I had invited was a personal friend of mine, except for this 18 year old (only underage person there), and he talked shit to everyone the whole time (he also won every single game he played and even won the late night tourny between rounds of puking- he's 75th in the world so it was actually pretty cool).
He had the wrong vibe about him though, acting like a sober kid at a legitimate tournament, so someone had to set him straight. He took it way too seriously and, after hours of shit talking, ended up offending some of the guests. A few people approached me about it, and I said I'd take care of it (I'm rarely violent, but this time I was drunk). I went outside with him, and he kept talking shit, so I got in his shit, but he didn't back down, so I pressed B in my mind, and his shield collapsed against the fury of my warlock punch. Then he started puking.
Trust me that I would never hit someone over most anything most of the time, but when I'm trying to get high and win a few nod-stocks, and my guests are getting salted because some mouthy teen showed up, I gotta take action.
There's nothing embarrassing about citing professional smashers. That kid in my story was a pro, and it was obvious. Watching him felt like I was watching Mango or PPMD.
Here's another story for anyone who made it this far. We're freshman in college, someone has a wii, and we're discovering smash via Brawl (which is fairly new at the time). My roommate, a large man's-man-kinda-guy named Ted, plays Olimar, Mario, Mr. Game, and ROB. My other roommate, a skinny druggie-type who we'll call Legoman, plays kirby and jigglypuff. Anyway, I'm asleep early, as usual, but they're up getting in some heated 1v1s in the other room. Suddenly, I'm woken up by a shouting match. I get out of bed to see what's wrong, and I find them out in the hallway insulting each other's characters:
>lego: MARIO IS A FUCKING PUSSY YOU LITTLE BITCH GO BACK TO PLUMBING
>ted: KIRBY IS JUST A FUCKING TESTICLE DUDE FUCK YOU
>lego: DON'T TALK SHIT BOUT MY BOY KIRBS HE GETS MORE PUSS THAN YOU FAGGOT
>ted: YEAH IF YOU COUNT THAT FAT UGLY FLAT-CHESTED BITCH JIG-
>lego: dash attack
>ted: shield, wavedash back, jab combo (the gentleman specifically)
>lego: dashdance back, FALCON-
>ted: *spirals down to the ground, is motionless*
>lego: FUCK THAT FAGGOT OLIMAR PIKMIN CAN SUCK MY DICK BITCH DON'T LET ME EVER CATCH YOU TALKING SHIT ABOUT MY GIRL AGAIN OR I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU FAGGOT
Now text might give you one impression, but really these two were best of friends, and just loved taking things as far as they could. Everyone that observed it in the hallway thought they were really pissed at each other, and maybe they were, but it was still sort of a joke, even though lego through his hardest punch at Ted's face (left a nasty mark and they wrestled on the ground after). It was one of the funniest things I've ever beheld regarding smash. Two people publicly arguing and fighting over the merits (and in puff's case, attractiveness) of different characters.
