    20XX is a meme started by a player named Hax who switched from Captain Falcon to Fox, saying that there was little reason to play anything other than the best character in the game. Hax is a firm believer in the idea that since Melee has already been boiled down into 8 tournament viable characters and then even further down into 3 top characters, it's stupidly optimistic to think that it won't be boiled down again into a top 1 character (Fox).

    I saw people post 20XX memes when Nekroz was the only viable deck, but it seems to have spread otherwise.

    The concept can be applied to basically every competitive game, though. The last time I played YGO competitively was during DUEA format, where there was a "top 3" best decks kind of thing going on (Shaddoll, Satellar, BA) and eventually Satellars fell off, boiling the format down to a top 2.

    If the game hadn't changed with the introduction of Qli, following Hax's philosophy then it was only a matter of time before Shaddoll overcame BA and became the only relevant deck.

    Edit: For the record, I strongly doubt 20XX would happen to Melee because of the sheer difficulty of playing Fox at the supposed 20XX level, but 20XX can definitely happen in a card game where there is no technical limitation on a player.

    Organization Number XIV. I translate Arc-V. Fight me in Melee.

    I see. Thankfully, this game changes with every new released card and banlist.

    Otherwise 20XX can happen pretty quickly since a format can be solved in a few months.
