So you're in a casual conversation about SSBM. How would you pronounce "Melee"?

voted the wrong option.

I used to say Mee lee, but after playing Kid Icarus: Uprising, I kept changing it to may lay.

Is this question really necessary when the game itself pronounces Melee as "May-lay" ?

If you listen closely in the Sound Test, the announcer clearly says "Mee-lee".
But other people pronounce it differently.

I've also heard "melee" pronounced "meh-lay".

But I say "mee-lee", and so does my copy of SSBM, last I checked, as well as everyone else I've talked to about SSBM. *shrugs*

It says "mee-lee" in the game but I've only heard it pronounced "may-lay".
has Drift finally lost his *bleep*? or is he once again pretending that his brother is using his account? will little Ricky be reunited with Lucy?

tune in next time for the exciting adventures of: Drift: A Bleepposting Tale

It doesn't say "mee lee" in the game. He's saying it the correct way, your brain just hears it that way because of confirmation bias.
