Light is a professional Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fox main from Connecticut, considered the best Fox player in the world and the current best player in the United States. He is currently ranked 1st on both the Connecticut Ultimate Power Rankings and New England Ultimate Power Rankings, S Tier on PGRUContenders North America and 3rd at OrionRank Mid-Year 2022.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Light was also a Fox player, and is also considered one of the best Fox players in the world along with Larry Lurr. He has taken sets from Tweek, Dabuz, Nairo, Cosmos, Mr.R, VoiD, komorikiri, and Larry Lurr. Light is currently ranked 1st on the Connecticut Smash 4 Power Rankings, 2nd on the NER 2017-2018, and 43rd on the Panda Global Rankings 100.

Light is also considered one of the best, if not the best doubles player in the world. He usually teams with Marss and the pair is considered the best Ultimate doubles team in the world, and have taken 1st place at majors such as Pound 2019, Low Tier City 7, Super Smash Con 2019, GENESIS 7, and Frostbite 2020.

On February 8th, 2018, Light was signed by Most Valuable Gaming.[1] Months later, on September 26th, 2018, MVG released Light from his contract for unknown reasons.[2] On February 21st, 2019, Light was signed by Rogue.[3] Light left Rogue on March 31st, 2020. [4] He was signed by Moist Esports on September 15th, 2021, an eSports team created by Cr1TiKaL.[5]


Light is known for his aggressive and quick playstyle. His knowledge and ability to tech chase and call out his opponent's options are effective in Fox's neutral. He also pays attention to his opponent’s defensive options and when he guesses right, he would pull off some of Fox's high damaging combo moves and strings in order to get his opponent to the specific kill confirm of neutral air into up smash if he reads a missed tech or vice versa. If the opponent is past that KO confirm percent range, he looks for other opportunities to frame trap them by keeping them in the corner, walling them out with back air, or go for jump reads with up air or the former. Unlike other Fox players, if Light knows he can edgeguard bad recoveries, he would run off Nair or shine spike them for early gimps. Light is also known to mix up Fox's recovery well, despite Fox having an easily exploitable linear recovery. For example, he uses Fox's reflector to stall his momentum in the air and uses Fire Fox in unique angles so he can potentially get trades with his opponent trying to edgeguard him.

  • Light has the iconic habit to roll up his sleeves during sets, especially when he is in difficult situations and very close sets.
  • Light is a fan of Toradora! and particularly Taiga Aisaka, the female protagonist of the show. Until recently, he often used "Palm Tiger" as his in-game tag, which is a derivation of Taiga's surname in the series ("Palmtop Tiger").
  • Light has been the subject of a few memes and running gags in the Smash community:
    • During a part of Smash 4 and Ultimate's competitive lifespan, Light's ability to clutch off sets and being victorious in very unfavorable situations has led the community saying Light has a plot armor and is therefore the protagonist of the competitive scene.[6]
    • Many players have called Light a "rap god" because his name, Paris Ramirez, fit perfectly into a rap beat.
    • A quote of Light stating that Wi-Fi is a sham[7] spawned several video edits, particularly those with Fox's victory screen.[8]
  • Light is known for frequently taunting whenever he takes a stock.
  • Light is the 5th player to 3-0 MkLeo, after Tweek, Glutonny, Marss, and Kurama.
