Kain is a Wolf player from Chicago, Illinois, who gained fame from dominating midwestern Brawl tournaments with Wolf, and being one of the best overall non-high tier players in the United States. From about 2009 to 2013, Kain was considered the best Wolf main in North America and arguably the world, until he became inactive and Seagull Joe surpassed him in 2013. Kain's success with Wolf was a major factor behind the reversal of the declining view of Wolf in 2011, which resulted in Wolf jumping up 8 positions throughout 2 revisions of tier lists. Kain was formerly ranked 74th on the 2014 SSBBRank.

Although he did not participate much in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Kain has made a notable impact on Chicago's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate scene playing Wolf, and was formerly ranked 12th on the Chicago Ultimate Power Rankings.
