Assault allegation[edit]

In June of 2019, false's housemates invited a player named Trey to a house party, despite him telling them not to do so. During the party, false attempted to stay uninvolved, but soon let an insulting comment slip when he stepped outside to smoke. After being confronted by Trey, false headbutted him, badly chipping his tooth. false initially claimed that the chipped tooth was a result of a mutual collision and that neither party was seeking violence; however, others at the scene, including Cilvanis, corroborate Trey's account that false had deliberately assaulted him after the interaction went sour.[3]

Brawl documentary communication[edit]

On February 9th, 2016, false launched a Kickstarter project intended to help him fund the filming of a documentary on Super Smash Bros. Brawl's competitive scene and its history.[4] However, after meeting all of the stretch goals, false's updates on the project became increasingly sparse, and he has been known to ignore almost all inquiries about the subject. The most recent update posted on the documentary's Kickstarter campaign dates August 18th, 2019, the eighth official update ever posted. After being pressured repeatedly following the assault allegations covered above, false finally revealed a large backlog of footage and some of his editing process, although the actual extent to which he has worked is still unknown.

An anonymous Twitter burner account known as "Error: 102-R" claims in a Twitlonger post that after his organization, team ZENMA, disbanded due to the aforementioned assault controversy, false simply ran away with the money he had left. According to Error, false needed the editing skills of those in the organization to complete production, and did not intend on finishing the documentary after all of his possible collaborators had left.[5]

Abuse allegations[edit]

The aforementioned "Error: 102-R" account had implicated false's ex-girlfriend, littleteafox, as a possible accomplice to his money hoarding. As a response, littleteafox made a statement of her own denying any current connection with false or involvement with the Brawl documentary funds. She alleged that he had emotionally abused and manipulated her, most notably by taking his anger issues out on her and frequently insulting her and her friends to her face. Additionally, littleteafox claims that at multiple points in the relationship, he was financially dependent on her and wasted all of the money that he received.[6]


  • He graduated from Rutgers University, where he studied broadcasting and film.
  • When false tweeted[7] a Donkey Kong combo against Bowser in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the clip was mocked by others as the Smash Documentary he promised and became a meme by the combo being recreated in several other games including other Smash games, Super Smash Flash 2, and Minecraft, as well as being recreated with amiibo, an animation, and Microsoft Paint.[8][9]
