  • K9bruce's goal is to become the king of Smash and will often shout "I will be the king of Smash" after winning a set.
    • However, he later stated that he no longer has the ambition to be the "king of Smash", although he promises to still play his best. [4]
  • K9sbruce is infamous for his frequent outbursts whenever he loses (or wins) a match or the entire set. He got this from another smasher by the name of KiraFlax (Notable examples can be seen here).
    • One of his most notable moments has been turned into a GIF and has become a recurring representation of salt in the community.
      • However, he has expressed his intention to stop reacting so angrily to losses, and his outbursts have been far less intense and frequent since then.
  • He is the brother of SS, a top Villager and Ness player.
