In 2004 and 2005, Snake delivered two of the worst matches ever given by an "elite" character, both in sprite rounds against green animals. As such, the trendy pick was picking Snake to massively underperform again. And if this were 2005, Snake may have done just that. But Snake did no such thing, and was actually in the 59-60% range in the poll for quite awhile before the day vote came along to knock him down a bit.
Given how badly most expected Snake to do here (and for good reason, because his history in sprite matches is GOD-EFFING-AWFUL), 57% on Sprite Yoshi isn't half bad and is only about 4% worse than what would be expected through X-Stats. If his first two matches didn't clue you in that Snake was a beast this year, them him doing fine in a sprite match should have. And if that wasn't enough, we were only one round away from the Snake Victory Tour™ starting up as of this match.
