Other people he beat in Melee include, Jman, Hax, PC Chris, Wes, DJ Nintendo, DA Dav3, KDJ, Zanguzen, Cort, Hayato, and Cactuar.

Bum played Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He placed well in large, early tourneys and ran a weekly tournament on Fridays. In Brawl, he has beaten players such as ANTi, Keitaro, Dabuz, Will, Wes, NinjaLink, Inui, Nairo, and ADHD.

Bum is currently retired from competitive Smash, and now mainly plays Overwatch and Dragon Ball FighterZ.
