DJ Nintendo is a Dominican-American Melee Fox main from the Northeastern United States who currently resides in Bronx, NY. He has been playing Melee competitively since 2002, making him one of, if not, the longest continuously active players. He almost exclusively teams with The Moon in doubles tournaments, and their team is known as ""Grab n'Go". He is known for being proficient with most of the characters in Melee and is considered to be one of the best Bowser players in the world alongside WarriorKnight, along with having a solid Pikachu, Mario, and Samus. He is also known for having some of the most consistent survival DI in the world. DJ Nintendo is currently ranked 65th on the 2016 SSBMRank and 3rd on the New York City Power Rankings.

Information[edit]

DJ Nintendo is widely known as the "voice" of the East Coast Melee scene, a role similar to that of HomeMadeWaffles on the West Coast, as he commentates on tournament livestreams. Being bilingual, DJ Nintendo casted in Spanish for Pound 2016's Melee singles top 8 simulcast, alongside n0ne. DJ Nintendo is also a great mentor or "sensei", as he enjoys helping players improve their games with his accurate and helpful advice; some of his most notable "students", such as Jman and The Moon, have reached widespread notoriety in the Smash community under and beyond his coaching.

He was also invited to participate in the E3 2014-held Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament to play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. He used Bowser in the tournament.

Phrases[edit]

In addition to his commentary, DJ Nintendo uses an overt vocabulary during matches.

    • "Drinking his DJs" (when someone DI's really well)
  • "More Coverage than Verizon" - said when a smasher covers most or all of an opponent's options
  • "Presshha!!" - an abstraction of the word pressure
  • "Knee of Love" - used when there is a well spaced knee
  • "Washing Machine" - refers to Peach's down smash
  • "Payless Shoes" - refers to Peach's down aerial, since Peach uses her shoes, which look like they are cheap shoes from a store like Payless.
  • "Papaya Smack" - refers to Samus's forward smash
  • "Celebrity Legs" - refers to Sheik's back aerial
  • "Ramen Noodles" - refers to when a player quickly edge-hogs an opponent at the last possible moment
