  • BestNess commonly switches his ingame tag to "FitNess" whenever he uses Wii Fit Trainer, both as a pun and to keep the name "Ness" in his tag.
  • When BestNess performs well with another character than Ness (like when he beat MkLeo at The Quarantine Series with Piranha Plant), the community parodies his tag by changing the "Ness" part for the character he won with (BestPlant in that case).
  • BestNess owns a 7 year old dog (Golden Labradoodle). When the dog was revealed on stream, BestNess said "He's too big for my lap". No name has been officially mentioned.
  • BestNess has been known to dislike the Mii Fighters as he claims that they are not "real characters".
  • BestNess won first place in both the first- and second-largest smash tournaments of all time, online or offline - The Quarantine Series: Minor Tournament 1 at 5121 entrants and The Box at 8158 entrants.
