Vermanubis is a professional smasher from New Hampshire and currently residing in Oregon, noted for being one of the few pure Ganondorf players in competitive Brawl, and is often considered the best Ganondorf player in the United States, along with DLA. He is known for playing a patient, yet aggressive Ganondorf, with what is considered to be some of the best prediction and perfect shielding skills. He is also known for being capable of utilizing the difficult Flight of Ganon and Flipman techniques in play.

In 2011, Vermanubis moved to Oregon, where due to the lack of tournaments and general isolation, his tournament activity in Smash became mostly inactive. He continued to enter Brawl tournaments whenever possible and, despite playing significantly less, he still managed to place well. As the time of 2019, he is ranked #1 in Idaho's power rankings for Ultimate.

Vermanubis continued to play Ganondorf in Smash 4, becoming perhaps the biggest threat in Idaho when he was active. Verm stayed with Ganondorf in Ultimate, though with Simon and Richter to back up his old main, with Castlevania, one of his favorite game series, finally in Smash.

Trivia[edit]

Vermanubis imitating a Flame Choke on Nakat at 2GG: Hyrule Saga, which someone photoshopped to give Verm aesthetic features of Ganondorf to perpetuate the "Verm is Ganon" joke.
  • It is commonly joked in the Smash community that Vermanubis is Ganondorf, for imitating the character at tournaments while having what many see to be a resemblance to the character.
  • His tag is a gibberish of consonants to stand out uniquely and is not related to vermin or the ancient Egyptian god Anubis.
