Editor for Smashboards and Source Gaming and member of the 4BR, A10theHero is a huge fan of Smash. Of course, why wouldn’t he, when all his favorite video game characters are there? (Except Spyro. RIP Spyro. Did you know that during Smash 4 speculation, A10 made stuff like this? Me neither.) When he’s not labbing Pikachu tech in Smash 4, A10 likely can be found fanboying about Pokémon. It is his favorite video game series after all. Surprisingly enough, A10 actually has a life outside of the internet. He’s an Environmental Engineering major at UC Davis. Isn’t that cool? c: He also likes reading, writing, running, and listening to music (mainly punk rock, showtunes, and VG OSTs). The three phonetic Rs! …And a fourth part that ruins that. Hmm, I’m not sure how to end this bio, so, uhh, please enjoy this high-quality music.
Gaming is a passion that I’ve had ever since I was little. Smash is just a natural stem of that passion that has constantly evolved ever since I got older. It’s one of my favorite pass times and interacting with people who have the same interest is really cool. I also hope to extend it into Source Gaming and do something to help make the community better.
Mains: Cloud, Ryu, Dr. Mario, Mario
I’m a college student for Computer Sciences and a technology aficionado. Huge gaming person, and in particular a huge Metroid fan. Got into Smash from Melee with friends, where I mained Mewtwo, played every Smash game since. I might be a stern one in arguments but I’m pretty laid back and a complete joker when among friends. Just ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I spout puns and jokes like there’s no tomorrow. Most active on SmashBoards andmy Twitter.

Favorite Series: Professor Layton, Fire Emblem, The Legend of Zelda, Rhythm Heaven, MOTHER, and Retro gaming.

If video game historian was a career that would be my goal in life. I have spent a lot of my life studying various histories and so I am super familiar with sourcing, which is pretty essential for this site and just a good thing to do in general so you do not spread lies. I have a huge fascination with the old days and ips with Nintendo. There is so much potential for old franchises like Balloon Fight, Marvelous, Nazo no Murusame Jo and more to come back in the modern age. At least Smash celebrates those games! My focus for source gaming are the Dream articles and working on Project Omega. I hope you enjoy reading my work.
Mains: Link & Pikachu (64), Young Link & Marth (Melee), Toon Link & Lucario (Brawl), Yoshi & King Dedede (Smash for Wii U/3DS)
I’m the guy responsible for the article headers you see on Source Gaming or Twitter/Facebook. Sometimes, I’ll also do some additional graphics for SG like our Profile-Capsules in Smash-Style, you seeing right now. Because of that, you won’t hear much about me. But I hope, you’ll like the designs I make. What else can I say about me? Ah yeah, I’m a VERY big Kirby-Fan, which you could maybe tell from my profile picture and maaaaybe from my name. And as a design-guy, I’m also fascinated about animation.

Mains: Game & Watch and Dr. Mario (Melee), Game & Watch, R.O.B (Brawl), Game & Watch, Pac-Man, Lucina (Sm4sh)
Smash has always been my favorite game series of all time. Ever since I was young, the idea of Mario fighting Pikachu on Hyrule Castle just blew my mind. As I grew up, I developed an interest in Video Editing. I’ve always loved making people laugh, and Youtube was the perfect outlet to combine all of my interests.
Now, I make article adaptions on Source Gaming’s Youtube channel, and also upload content to my own channel!
Mains: Falco (Melee), Cloud, Pikachu (Smash 4)
Fan of video games, manga and anime. I first got into the Super Smash Bros. series in 2004 when I got Melee as a birthday present and has been one of my favorite video game franchises ever since. I’m interested in game design and development and I also have some experience in programming, so my articles will mostly focus on researching and theorizing about how the many elements found in the Super Smash Bros. games were conceived. My most played character is Ganondorf, though I also play as all other characters somewhat often, some favorites being Robin, Bowser Jr., Mewtwo and Dark Pit.
