Tournament Summary

SASUKE 33 was the first tournament in 16 years (since SASUKE 7), that Nagano Makoto didn't compete in SASUKE (Nagano announced his retirement in SASUKE 32). The First Stage time limit increased by 13 seconds, making it the first time since SASUKE 14 that the time limit was not a multiple of 5. A new obstacle, the Fish Bone, was introduced. Although there were shocking failures such as Urushihara Yuuji's fail on the Rolling Hill, Kanno Hitoshi's failure on the same obstacle, Kishimoto Shinya failing the Quad Steps, last but not least with Darvish Kenji devastating failure on the Lumberjack Climb, with one step closer to clear the First Stage. Nevertheless, 13 people cleared, which included numerous celebrities, like Takeru, Mori Wataru, ABC-Z member Tsukada Ryoichi, for their first time. Takeda Toshihiro cleared the First Stage since SASUKE 30, and reigning Grand Champion Morimoto Yusuke cleared the First Stage in his return. Several competitors who cleared in the previous tournament, such as Drew Drechsel and Sato Jun, also cleared.

In the Second Stage, however, the results were lackluster compared to the previous tournament. The time limit was decreased by five seconds, while the Cross Slider was replaced with the Ring Slider. While it did not eliminate anyone, the obstacle proved to be an efficient time waster and strength drainer. Both Salmon Ladder Nobori and Kudari were lethal, as all of the celebrities who attempted them except for Mori Wataru failed. The Reverse Conveyor unexpectedly posed a threat, as Third Stage veteran Hioki Masashi timed out there, as did Mori Wataru, likely due to the obstacle moving at a faster pace than the previous tournament. It took a string of 8 failures before Asa Kazuma cleared the Second Stage. The last 4 people (Drew Dreschel, Sato Jun, Nagasaki Shunsuke, and Morimoto Yusuke) all cleared.

In the Third Stage, the resting platform between the Flying Bar and Sidewinder Kai was removed, and both obstacles were modified. The Flying Bar was changed to have a line attached to the bar along a wire track to prevent the competitor to take the bar down with him in case he failed, while the Sidewinder's zig-zag formation was changed to a straight line. In addition, the green resting bars leading to the Pipe Slider from the Vertical Limit Kai were blocked off at the top, meaning that competitors could no longer rest at any point in the second half of the stage. The modification to the Flying Bar proved lethal, as all but one of the competitors who attempted it failed. Only Drew managed to clear the obstacle, as well as the Sidewinder Kai, but when attempting the Ultra Crazy Cliffhanger, he rushed through the obstacle, not wanting to wait for the moving ledge at the end. As he made the second transition, the moving ledge start to move up. This ended up costing him and he failed the obstacle, unlike in the previous competition. After Morimoto failed the Flying Bar, the tournament ended with no Third Stage clears.
