Jouske (丈助) is one of the top three Smash 64 players in Japan (along with wario and Fukurou), and the top Samus main in the world.

He plays all other characters at a high level, as seen in his various twelve character battles, though it has been stated his favorite characters are Samus and Donkey Kong.

He is known for his incredible spacing, and his use of the last hit of Samus's forward aerial to link devastating finishers.


Jouske's wins include the Kanto Smash 64 tournaments in 2009, 2012, and 2013, and a 200 person online tournament known as Smash 64 Spring Online Tournament. He also remains the only player in the world to have won a 12 character battle against Isai. Against SuPeRbOoMfAn, he has a winning record of 3-0 in 12 character battles in the US version, and a 1-1 record in 12 character battles in the Japanese version.

Following a 2nd place finish at Kansai 2015, Jouske announced on his Twitter he would enter a temporary hiatus period, which lasted for 1 month.
