Trivia[edit]

  • He was originally a Falco main and Luigi secondary before fellow Pittsburgh Luigi player Vudujin convinced him to main Luigi.
  • Along with Zenith 2013, Abate also has a win over Hax's Fox. At Revival of Melee 7, Abate defeated Hax 2-0, thanks in part due to a costly SD by Hax to end game 1. These wins have made Prog call him Hax's "demon".
