Trivia[edit]

  • GimR's tag originated as an abbreviation for "God is my Rock", which he chose while he was a teenager. As he stopped being a Christian since, the tag no longer has a specific meaning according to him, though he has jokingly stated it now stands for Glock in my Rari. [3][4]
  • GimR was commonly mistaken to operate GRsmash's YouTube channel, though this was declared false by GRSmash.[5]
  • GimR is victim of a meme, where he is blamed for killing Project M.
  • GimR is associated with the phrase and meme "The GimZ always WinZ", due to his upsets among certain players, such as Silent Wolf at Smash the Record 2015.
  • Throughout April 2022, GimR heavily advertised a new tech that he was to debut on his Twitch channel on May 4th. However despite starting the stream, he faced a technical issue that prevented him from presenting the tech,[6] leading his Twitch channel to play "Back to the Lab" for over an hour. This has since spawned several jokes regarding the song, with Twitter Gaming also picking up on it,[7] leading to GimR to trend on Twitter.
