Shoyo James, or simply James, is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Chrom main from Howell, New Jersey, who is one of the main tournament directors for the New Jersey scene. He is considered as the best Chrom main in the world with wins against players such as VoiD, ESAM, Mr E, Dabuz, Cosmos, HIKARU, and MuteAce. He is currently ranked 2nd on the New Jersey Ultimate Power Rankings.
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, he was a Diddy Kong main with a strong Luigi secondary. He has taken sets off of top players such as Tweek, Elegant, Ally, CaptainZack, komorikiri, MVD, Darkshad, Mr E, and Zinoto, and is ranked 54th on the Panda Global Rankings 100.
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 Ultimate.
He is currently affiliated with the DMG crew, and was formerly in OcS (Ocean County Smash).
