  • Due to his strong presence in French tournaments, he managed to be part of French Power Rankings twice despite living in the Netherlands. He accomplished this feat once in Smash 4 and once in Ultimate, and was ranked both times as an Honorable Mention.
  • Meru can speak Dutch, Persian, English, French, German and Japanese fluently. He also has notions of Italian and Spanish[1]. On Twitter, he can be seen sometimes interacting with people of those communities in their languages.
  • In Ultimate, Meru has often been eliminated at 9th place at European tournaments, including Albion 4, Ultimate Fighting Arena 2019, Syndicate 2019, Ultimate WANTED 2, Valhalla III, and DreamHack Leipzig 2020. This has been jokingly called the "9th place curse".
  • Meru was the person who launched the hashtag "#FixUltimateOnline". This hashtag temporarily became the #1 gaming trend on Twitter on April 23rd, 2020.
