Shoyo James, or simply James, is an SSB4 Diddy Kong main with a strong Luigi secondary from Howell, New Jersey, who is one of the main tournament directors for the New Jersey scene. He is currently ranked 2nd on the New Jersey Smash 4 Power Rankings and ranked 54th on the Panda Global Rankings 100. He has taken sets off of top players such as Tweek, Elegant, Ally, CaptainZack, komorikiri, MVD, Darkshad, Mr E, Zinoto, dyr, and 6WX. James entered semi-retirement due to medical conditions near the end of Smash 4's lifespan; in an interview with ZeRo at Smash 'N' Splash 4, James revealed that he suffers from tendinitis and thus doesn't enter many tournaments. More recently, James has switched to the Switch Pro Controller for a more ergonomic control scheme and has begun to compete again in Smash Ultimate.
He is currently affiliated with the DMG crew, and was formerly in OcS (Ocean County Smash).
