- Revan is known for popularizing a tradition from the Los Angeles Smash 64 community, where after a player has been "5-Stocked" he/someone would mimic the sound of blowing a horn. Revan used a conch shell to amplify the "5-stock horn" at Operation Desert Smash 1, where the Smash 64 community fell in love with the act. This has been featured in Pound 2016, GOML 2016, Operation Desert Smash 2, and Super Smash Con 2016. When watching these tournaments take notice of the commentators referencing the conch, or even the conch itself.
