Dad mercilessly beats son to tears in Smash Bros. after he says he wants to be pro gamer

Gamer father showed his power, but the Japanese Internet thinks he might not have displayed much wisdom.


Nintendos Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been the biggest video game hit of the holiday season in Japan. As the fifth entry in the series, which started in 1999 and features lovable characters from across Nintendos flagship franchises, its mix of depth and pick-up-and-play accessibility makes it a great choice for both parents and kids who enjoy gaming.

However, a recent Smash session between Japanese Twitter user @amour_rapid and his son was no episode of multi-generational bonding. In a now-protected tweet, @amour_rapid said:

Recently my son has been saying he wants to become a pro gamer, so I didnt hold back at all against him playing Smash Brothers, and I beat him so badly that he started crying his eyes out.

Online reactions to @amour_rapids parenting technique were split. Some proclaimed this was a case of a father with a proud warrior spirit tearing down his haughty sons overconfidence, so that true strength would grow in its placeor at least a dad showing his kid that though e-sports have become a thing, theres stratum upon stratum of skill level above his sons current having-fun-amateur level, and the process of trying to rise through the ranks might not be enjoyable, especially when hes facing off against opponents in money-paying tournaments where no mercy is shown.

But on the other side of the discussion were people like Twitter user @isikusu, who works as a freelance video game scriptwriter.


Its kind of a funny story, and it seems like a lot of people are accepting of what the dad did. But when adults show such harsh realities to kids just as they start talking about their dreams, especially if theyre the kids parents, I think the kids arent crying because they couldnt win, but because they feel betrayed by the adult. What do those adults hope to accomplish by snipping childrens dreams in the bud?

@isikusu statement generated comments of agreement from other Twitter users, such as:

I saw a lot of people saying If the kid can bounce back from that, hell be a real competitor, but people only get the strength to bounce back if they enjoy what theyre doing enough to want to keep doing it.

Now his son is going to have it imprinted on his mind that every time he has a dream, his parent is going to crush it. I think the poor kid is going to grow up to be the kind of person who gives up on anything right away.

Hell end up as the kind of person who doesnt do what he wants to do, but whatever his parents wont object to, and his ability to be independent or proactive will die in the process.

The dad sounds pretty immature. Wouldnt it have been better to just have fun playing the game together and give his kid a happy memory?

In a follow-up tweet, @isikusu remained adamant that thrashing the kid (or at least his on-screen character) was the wrong thing to do.


Its pretty much the same as if a child said I want to be a scientist, and then you suddenly made him take a college entrance exam, so that hed cry when he couldnt answer the questions

Judging from the fact that @amour_rapids son cried after losing in a video game, its probably safe to a*sume that hes still pretty young, and like the hypothetical would-be scientist @isikusu mentions, the true gatekeeper test for his dream (professional-level competition and psychological stress) is still several years off. However, its a test hes going to have to pass someday if he wants to make gaming his job.

Its worth pointing out that @amour_rapid didnt explain what happened after his sons post-defeat tears. If he simply laughed and gloated (like a certain other gamer dad who had it in for his daughters Guilty Gear-loving boyfriend), hes probably just a jerk. On the other hand, if he turned the situation into a learning opportunity by explaining, See? Thats how far you have to go to reach your goal, so are you willing to put in the time and effort to get there? maybe with a gentle reminder of You should keep studying hard in school, since becoming a pro gamer might not be as easy or as fun as you think, then his heart was probably in the right place, unorthodox methods notwithstanding.

Slapped for including the tweets. I damn sure can't speak Japanese or Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese) and I know most if not every person that comes to this thread can't understand it or read it.

he was showing his son that if he wants to make his dream a reality that he will have to face off vs some very hard competition.... the whole idea of professional gaming makes no sense to me in the first place tho

English must be a struggle too considering it's clearly Japanese based on the context of the article.

Use to beat the mess out my son in k*ller instinct. I said if you want to win you practice to get better. Stop whining, you cant win everything.


I left him by himself for an hour in tutorial mode then some practice matches.

I can't beat him anymore.
