DireOnFire, formerly known as DireVulcan, is an American professional smasher who lives in New York state and generally attends any tournaments in the area. He uses a wide variety of characters, typically ones that are not expected to win. He is known for his mindgames and an un-canny knack for catching the "9-hammer" consistently in tournament, once catching it back to back in a now infamous 4 stock in the final match against Virginia Falco player Nick in Grand Finals.

Dire's primary claim to fame within the Smash community came about as a result of his Mr. Game & Watch play, though he has also written a guide to Mario, and next to Fumi, the best Yoshi player, being extremely technical with him.

Dire has recently retired Mr. Game & Watch locally, and now plays Yoshi in New York.

He was a commentator for Pound 2016 Smash 4 singles and doubles.

He had a notable performance in Smash 4 at KTAR XVIII where he defeated Nairo, sending him to Losers in Round 1 of the Top 32.
