Location Indiana United States

KishCubed (August 16th, 1985 – January 15th, 2005), was a Sheik player from Indiana. His first tournament was in St. Louis, where he immediately made an impact by getting second place over already respected smashers Joshu, Ignatius, and Snex. He was generally considered the best member of the Ship of Fools, except for the occasional loss to KishSquared.

Even as KishCubed went through open heart surgery and a heart transplant, his tournament career continued to flourish, often taking Top 3 prizes until his final tournament at Flame of Bowser 3, where he placed 1st, going 2-0 the whole tournament against such players as DSF, Eddie, and Drephen.

He passed away on January 15th, 2005 at the age of 19 from complications following heart surgery and rejection of the transplant. MLG made a donation in his name to the Make-a-Wish foundation, a group that had touched Daniel's life.

  • KishCubed once went on a quest to eliminate all avatars on Smashboards, with Darkrain in particular being one such person to have been affected. However, since Darkrain didn't have an avatar to remove from, Cubed was crestfallen and gave up on his pursuit.
    • The night before MELEE-FC1, Ken insisted his Luigi could not be defeated, with Cubed ending up defeating Ken and told him to change his avatar to Azen's. Despite Ken's shock, he followed along and did so for a month.[1]
