  • Kiyarash became popular after getting featured on ZeRo's YouTube for defeating Wishes 2-1 in a Wi-Fi tournament. During the set, Wishes proceeded to insult him which earned him strong condemnation from many other players.
  • Kiyarash has the nickname "Future of Smash", due to a rap battle in which he states, "My name is Kiyarash - the Future of Smash".
  • On May 13th, 2021, following his victory over ChunkyKong in a first to 5, Kiyarash shouted insults that contained profanity at his opponent, resulting in him getting kicked off of Hungrybox's Discord server's voice channel. He later rejoined the stream to briefly say "I apologize to nobody." These insults and his response[1] have since become memes in the community, with top players such as Maister changing their profile pictures to Luigi in response.
