ChiboSempai, also known as Chibo, is an American smasher from New Jersey who mains R.O.B.. Chibo previously lived in Philadelphia for 5 years while attending Drexel University, where he started his Smash career, and is known as one of the best R.O.B. mains in both Brawl and SSB4. He is, however, mostly known for being the owner and founder of CLASH Tournaments, both one of the largest tournament organization and streaming companies in Smash. He was formerly ranked 15th on the Tristate Smash 4 Power Rankings and is currently ranked 10th on the Philadelphia Project M Power Rankings.

Biography[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Formerly known as "ElChibo", Chibo was tired of everyone speaking Spanish to him in online games based on his name, so he decided to switch to "ChiboSempai" in August of 2007. He now commonly goes by just CT Chibo or ChiboSempai in full.

Early Smash career and sponsorships[edit]

Chibo has been a fan of the Smash series for a long time, dating back to Smash 64, however he did not get into the tournament scene until November of 2006. He spent his time playing Smash playing against players such as GOTM, Scar, Cactuar while in Philadelphia, where he attended Drexel University. Chibo began as a Young Link and Mario main in Melee, though soon switched to Samus as he advanced in competitive play.

Chibo was in the crew Titans of Smash with other players such as GOTM and MexiMadnez. Since the creation of the crew, he recruited plenty of good players and friends such as AlexanderTriad, Vex Kasrani, and TenNoTensai. The crew lived on for many years, stretching from Melee back in 2007, up through multiple years after the release of Brawl. The crew eventually grew quite large, with many members split between the Philadelphia and South Jersey areas. He has also been sponsored by two different teams previously - FYC eSports, and vVv Gaming. While he was an active professional player at the time (both sponsorships started in 2010), Chibo also joined these organizations for his skills in tournament organization and media production, as a means of getting exposure for these companies. He is known to say that skill isn't the only factor in becoming sponsored, and feels he is proof of this, and often says this when people ask him for advice on becoming sponsored. Before the departure of Smash from vVv Gaming, Chibo was their Brawl Division Manager.

CLASH Tournaments and recent years[edit]

In 2011, Chibo decided to bring all of his efforts in the community with tournament organizing and live streaming under the common name "CLASH Tournaments". As time went on, CT became more focused specifically on live streaming and media production, and the sponsoring of players, though Chibo still works as tournament organization staff for many events, such as the Apex Series. The first players sponsored by CLASH Tournaments were Mew2King and ZeRo, as a way for Chibo to take his profits from CT and give back to the community, and enhance the image of both professional players. CT is now a leading media provider for the Smash community, as Chibo actively travels the country on a near weekly basis to stream events.

Chibo also worked with Major League Gaming to help run MLG World Finals 2015 in a beneficial manner to the community.

Trivia[edit]

  • Crowds at tournaments will often chant his name during hype moments, or at times when he's not even involved with the event. This started after his on-stage doubles performance with Leon at Apex 2012.
