  • 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.
