Shroomed is a top professional Melee player, originally from Richmond, California and currently residing in San Jose, California, who mains Sheik and Marth, and is widely considered to be the best Dr. Mario player of all time. Despite Dr. Mario's status as a mid-tier character, Shroomed was able to perform exceptionally well with him, shown by his victories over renowned smashers such as Leffen, KirbyKaze, and Overtriforce. He consistently finished in the top 8 of big name tournaments such as Apex 2013 and EVO 2013 with only Dr. Mario; however, after an uncharacteristically low placement at Apex 2014, Shroomed decided to switch his main to his former secondary Sheik.

Shroomed is currently ranked 2nd on the NorCal Melee Power Rankings and 45th on the SSBMRank 2023.

He joined the Winterfox team on July 16th, 2015[1] and left on December 7th, 2016[2]. He then joined the Immortals team on December 22nd of the same year.[3] He and Immortals eventually parted ways on October 8th, 2018.[4] Over a year later, Shroomed would sign with Morituri Esports on November 4th, 2019.

  • Shroomed tends to be the subject of several memes in the Smash community;
    • At Smash Summit 2, Shroomed revealed that his "real name" is DaJuan Energy McDaniel, and he and SFAT made a short on the reveal.
    • I'm Not Yelling! was named after a brief speech from Shroomed at a Get Smashed at the Foundry weekly where he yelled this phrase whenever someone told him to stop yelling.
    • It is often joked that Shroomed only takes Melee seriously or levels up whenever he needs to qualify for an event, as he often takes hiatuses from competing while seemingly always retaining peak competitive shape.[6] Examples of this include Shroomed qualifying for multiple Smash Summits, the Slippi Champions League, and the Ludwig Smash Invitational.
    • Shroomed is noted to have a very bright smile, which occasionally elicits sponsors from oral care companies beside his tag.
  • Shroomed is the first smasher to take a set off of Mew2King in a Melee Sheik mirror match.
  • At the Ludwig Smash Invitational, Shroomed played Franz (widely regarded as the current best Dr. Mario player) in a Doc mirror match, losing 3-0.
