Gimpyfish, sometimes just called Gimpy, is a retired American smasher known primarily for being one of the few notable Bowser professionals in Melee. Gimpyfish was known for refusing to be called by his real name at tournaments; he requested that all players call him "Gimpy" or an acceptable variant.
 In Melee
Gimpyfish remains infamous for his notoriously high skill with bottom tiered character Bowser. Although there were many claims that Gimpyfish would be among the best of Melee players if he used a higher tier character, he stayed true to his Bowser, and instead chose to elevate Bowser to extremely high levels of play. Additionally, Gimpyfish focused less on technical skill and instead put more emphasis on mindgames and similar tactics. Gimpyfish was ranked 7th on the Washington Power Rankings before he moved to Southern California.
 In Brawl
Prior to the release of Brawl, Gimpyfish attended E For All to play the demo of the game; the thread, which can still be found on the forums, remains one of the most replied to and visited threads in the history of the SWF.
With the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Gimpyfish simply could not enjoy playing Bowser the way he did in Melee due to all of Bowser's changes and as such he now insists that "Bowser isn't playable in Brawl." Gimpyfish then considered using Meta Knight, but decided to main Sheik after she was significantly weakened in Brawl, thus allowing him once again to compete with a low-tier character. His first and latest combo video with Sheik has been released on YouTube with the name "The Triforce of Style".
Gimpyfish also plays Project M, once again returning to his old main, Bowser. Due to the significant buffs that Bowser received, Gimpyfish has been able to do extremely well in Project M tournaments, even beating mains of Melee top tier characters such as Silent Wolf in tournament finals.
Gimpyfish stated that he no longer plays Melee or Brawl and is "retired" from both games. Similar to Rickety, however, he continues to have close ties with the competitive scene; he attended the Washington regional tournament of TourneyPlay as play-by-play announcer, and uploaded match videos on YouTube a few days after. Gimpyfish remains active on the Smash World Forums, as well holding a moderator position on both the Melee and Brawl sections of the forums, as well as the regional boards; he has been known to use his mod powers for comedic effect, often by editing other people's posts.
 Outside of Smash
Gimpyfish currently lives in Riverside, California, attending classes at the California Baptist University; his announced major was reported to be in Education and Kinesiology.
