Trivia[edit]

  • RFang was voted into Smash Ultimate Summit 2 in the first round of voting. Despite accusations that he was a "meme pick" (which resulted in the nickname of "Roach Fang" from Leffen due to his friend eating a roach), he managed to break top 8 at The Big House 9 the following weekend, defeating Pandarian, Light, Trela, and WaDi on road to a 7th place finish.[1]
    • His impressive placement at The Big House 9 led Leffen to make a tweet officially declaring RFang not to be a "meme pick".[2]
  • RFang's dedication to physical fitness and knowledge of engineering has been held in high standard by numerous people within the Smash community.
