Trivia[edit]

  • TaleOfTheToaster, as part of a crew with Cagt, aperture, Virum and TheFlow, achieved 5th place in the Smash 4 crew battle at Shine 2017. The all-European team were named "The Tea Party" for this event.
  • TaleOfTheToaster kickstarted various actions from within the crowd at Super Smash Con 2018 and 2019, receiving recognition and notoriety online[2][3] for counting the number of Dragon Lunge uses from Cosmos during his Top 8 sets on a whiteboard in 2018, and replicating the victory animation of Joker by running in place behind the commentators following MkLeo set wins in 2019.
  • TaleOfTheToaster is somewhat infamous locally for overly relying on Arm Rotor in Ultimate sets, prompting the British scene to nickname the move "The Tragic Roundabout" across the country, in honor of TaleOfTheToaster's own combat robot which attacks by repeatedly spinning.
