voted the wrong option.

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

I would put something actually creative here, but that would require effort on my behalf.

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".
Good luck ANSER

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.
