Super Smash Bros. Melee' is a fighting game release by Nintendo in 2001. It is the sequel to Super Smash Bros. for the N64 and was followed by Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii in 2008. SSBM has been one of the most popular games on Board 8 ever since the board became more Nintendo-friendly in '04 and '05.

Melee has a few notable matches in its GameFAQs Contest history, most notably against Starcraft in 2004, Final Fantasy VII in both 2004 and 2015 and both Chrono Trigger and Undertale in 2015.

Melee's Contest success had not been limited to its impressive Division 128 championship in 2004 and its performance in 2015; the game has also launched a number of characters into (semi-)successful GameFAQS Contest careers. Of the 26 playable characters in SSBM, 21 have an appearance in a character battler. If you discount those who wouldn't be eligible because CJay/SB would consider them the same person (Sheik, Dr. Mario, Young Link, maybe Pichu), then the number stands at 21 of 22. Here is the full listing of unique/eligible characters, ranked by tier.

Here's to hoping we see Roy sooner or later!
