Nitrocidal is a Canadian smasher known for his Kirby and for having written a comprehensive text guide to playing a competitive Kirby known as A Puffball from Popstar.
Nitrocidal discovered the competitive scene in the spring of 2005. Interested in getting to play other people, he communicated with several Calgary players including xpiritflare, and his friend Neil. Nitrocidal began to organize a tournament set for August, 2005. However, due to his lack of organizational skills and an unseen financial crisis, he was forced to cancel it, leaving many Edmonton and Calgary smashers angry.
