Zinoto is a Brawl and Smash 4 Diddy Kong main from Michigan.

In Brawl, he is widely considered to be one of the best Diddy Kong mains in the world (alongside ADHD and Gnes). Zinoto started on the All is Brawl wifi ladder in 2009, but didn't enter offline competitive Brawl tournaments until the fall of 2011. He has taken sets off of many top players, including Dabuz, Earth, Rich Brown, Ally, Shugo, Nick Riddle, Tyrant, NAKAT, and Larry Lurr. He is ranked 1st on the Michigan Brawl Power Rankings.

In Smash 4, Zinoto is also viewed as one of the strongest Diddy Kong players alongside ZeRo. Throughout his career, he has beaten many notable players including Dabuz, Ally, VoiD, Abadango, MKLeo, Larry Lurr, Nairo, ANTi, komorikiri, and Salem. He is currently ranked 16th on the Panda Global Rankings, and 2nd on both the Midwest and Michigan Smash 4 Power Rankings.

Along with Smash 4 and Brawl, Zinoto also plays Dr. Mario in Melee at a strong level.

Trivia[edit]

  • Zinoto is known for wearing his signature scarf to all the Smash tournaments he attends; a burgundy, knitted one with his gamer tag and the University of Michigan logo embroidered on it. He also commonly wears a newsboy hat.
  • Zinoto plays secondaries in Brawl for the sole purpose of not having to play the Diddy Kong ditto as it is his least favorite matchup.
