Lifestory: When I went to Hobo 33, a local tournament here in Texas, I observed the gamers there and studied how they played; what helped them focus, what distracted them, etc. Out of all the players there, one guy stood out to me among them. He was the only player there who had his headphones on, listening to music, while playing. For some people, this would be incredibly distracting from the game. I was curious about this, so after I played a match with him, I asked him how he was able to focus on the game. He lowered his head phones around his neck, and said, “Oh no, this is exactly how I’m able to focus.”

^^^Did this player happen to be WONDER_BREEZY, the Ganon main?

True facts of how I played a year ago: Every time I was a different color I had a different playing style, green was spacing, red was very fast and aggresive, then white was kinda my balance where I did my best, but sometimes I'd still change it up. now it doesnt matter on color and I even have a new main with out too many habits.

While not exactly discussing "psychology" (what I think of) of a player while playing (mindset, thought process, emotional stability etc), still an interesting read.

I have brought up many external factors such as tv/monitor setup (type, video/audio quality, resolution, etc) and mods.

In tournament play, I believe the organizers should make an effort in ensuring "fair" distribution of television setups. Nationally known players aren't "entitled" to play on the biggest screen or the HDTV etc. Conversely relatively unknown players shouldn't be stuck with the small *** CRT either. Also all mods expect the one allowing for replays of any length should be banned. My friend never thought of "it" when I explained how some people may be visually distracted by differently colored backgrounds etc. Even "custom" music can throw someone off. If someone is able to play without any audio, I suggest playing with earphones or even ear plugs, especially if there is a noisy audience.

Mindgames: A "metagame" term that really shouldn't be used as if a game mechanic. When I hear mindgames, I'm talking about using your character taunt to annoy your opponent, jumping/dashing or attacking (especially if opponent is respawning) for no "practical" reason, or attempting to KO in a particular fashion (aiming for a special or charged smash when a simple tilt or "jab" would easily kill). It is the interaction with your opponent NOT your characters fighting. The most obvious would be trash talking or bragging while playing. There are more subtle things however which could really "get" to people. These types of things are seen in any competitive event.

My tl;dr point...if some player says they need to work on mindgames or some pseduo "metagame" aspect, they're the type of person that gets conned in life.
