Recently in an AON Gaming tournament, a 15-year-old player named Bocchi has won against Ally - a professional player in a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate match. Bocchi's character was Animal Crossing's Isabelle. And despite it was an unusual pick in the professional scene, she somehow made her own way to the victory against Solid Snake by Ally.

The audience at the competition were astounded at that unexpected victory of Bocchi. However, as for some other people, they started bullying her on the internet. Their negative reactions appeared on Twitter and Bocchi's live-streams. They were so toxic that the female player even though about stopping streaming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Bocchi couldn't hide her emotions on Twitter, saying that these haters were harassing her using inappropriate comments. She was "beyond stressful", but luckily not all people on the internet are bad. Bocchi received lots of support from her fans and followers, and it seems that the 15-year-old girl won't retire from playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate competitively. However, she decided to take a break over this situation.

“The amount of kind words you guys have given me is honestly really overwhelming. It made me feel really wanted and I know now that I need to try harder to focus on the positive. I’m young, I’m not used to this much of attention,” read the tweet posted by Bocchi, “I’m also a very emotional girl, being a teenager is actually the worst especially in an extremely male-dominated community it’s very weird.”

Below is the incredible victory of Bocchi against Ally in a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate match:

In fact, this is not the first time a match of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate received wide media attention. Recently in the annual CEO fighting game tournament, the professional player ESAM hurt his own hand during his celebration for the win over Antony “MuteAce” Hoo.

With the rising popularity of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the game's competitive scene will much likely to continue to receive a mass amount of attention.
