The King (or just "King") is a retired Jigglypuff player from Calgary, Alberta and the highest ranking member of the crew DBR. He was largely considered to be Canada's premiere Jigglypuff player during the peak of his career. Relatively unknown throughout the Smash scene participating in tournaments mainly only within the Alberta region, his breakout performance occurred at MLG Dallas '06, where through a string of upsets, he defeated Tink, Dope and Neo before falling to PC Chris and KoreanDJ, and then defeated FastLikeTree to clinch 5th place and earn his MLG Pro Status. In 2006 he lived in Northern California and was ranked 2nd on the NorCal Power Rankings.

Along with writing in-depth strategics on Jigglypuff's matchups and moveset potential on SmashBoards, which earned him his Smash Backroom membership, he has also produced two Jigglypuff combo videos with the help of Sidefx and DBR. Named after Jigglypuff's neutral special move Rollout, one of his combo videos has over 25,000 views on YouTube since it was uploaded in 2006. It features mainly aerial techniques, but also shows some ground and throw moves.

Mango stated that the reason he decided to main Jigglypuff is because he was inspired from watching King's combo videos.
