  • Dabuz will occasionally opt to bring a Luma plushie to tournaments, which he asserts, acts as emotional stress relief.[7]
  • Dabuz is often considered Hungrybox's equivalent in SSB4, due to both sharing a signature defensive playstyle, being born in the same year: 1993, and both sporting prominent beards.
  • Dabuz is well known for maintaining detailed notes on other players and match-ups, which he utilizes as a reference. It has become a meme in the SSB4 community, often employed when an unexpected upset occurs in tournament, or when Dabuz is given an example of how to perform in a match-up, or against a specific player.
  • Dabuz commonly uses tags with motivating words of advice in order to keep himself composed.
  • Dabuz is famous in the Smash community for his affinity for unusual food combinations, such as Pepsi and milk or peanut butter and BBQ sandwiches.
  • Dabuz was the best player in Playstation All Stars Battle Royale, winning multiple tournaments. Dabuz also won the Kid Icarus Uprising National Nintendo Championship.
  • Super Smash Con 2017 and 2018 were the only tournaments were Dabuz entered where he failed to make it into the top 32, placing 33rd at both events.
