PimpUigi was a Melee Luigi main from Pennsylvania famous for his use of Luigi's rising cyclone in the 2005 demonstration video Under the Sea, which showcases the character using the cyclone in conjunction with the Green Missile to navigate from one side to the other on every stage. Due to the early fame garnered from his video production and activity at SmashBoards, PimpUigi was known as one of the earliest Luigi innovators, though his tournament appearances in general were sparse.

PumpUigi's most notable tournament performances include teaming with Mew2King to win doubles against Wes and X Japan at the only KOTC he entered, and placing 25th at BOMB 4, after defeating Watty and Dope.

PimpUigi also co-created the Smash crew PimpTaxi alongside Taxi, a crew that recruited based not on smash skill or regional zone, but by social skill and sense of humor. It let PimpTaxi grow, and fade very quickly, as most of the members would only attend one tournament and never be seen again. Notable original members include Lord Knight, M. Marell, and Alexander Triad.
