So, how did you come up with your Username?
#1
I'll post mine a little later. But this thread was created because people were talking about their username in the thread that's about their user title.

This is indeed a horrible idea and it will never work.


I guess I'll start then! The very origin of this name comes from the days I still actively played Counter Strike online with my friends. I earned the title of "a weapon of mass distraction" for always running around shooting, thus distracting the enemy enough for my friends to get some kills. Then more confusion arose when I actually went for the kills myself. A certain demonic duck also played part in me coming up with this username.

I'm a big fan of F-Zero. My favorite ship to use in F Zero X was Bio Rex's Big fang. My fave in F Zero GX was Draq's Mighty Typhoon. I considered both names, but I took the name of the most interesting ship name in the series, Digi-Boy's ship Cosmic Dolphin, and altered it a little bit.

I play Cody in Street Fighter 4. His costume number 10 makes him look like a Bumblebee

I was tired of making random generic names, because I am unoriginal like that, so when I was playing WoW I made a blood elf rogue and named him Xannidel and I really liked the name that I came up with and it felt so unique to me so I decided to keep it.

Mine's pretty generic, but I chose it because I enjoy the works of Edgar Allan Poe, and "The Raven" is arguably his most famous work. I also happen to really like Raven from "Teen Titans" (the TV show).
I also have an interest in mythology and fairy tales, and ravens are prominent in a variety of stories.
Also, my real name also starts with "R" and is 2 syllables.

Hmm, I think I put waaay too much thought into such a simple username.

Mine comes from a mixture of different things.

The super part comes from my love of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the system I grew up as with a kid.

The squid part comes from my nickname when I go out.

And finally the 64 part comes from the Nintendo 64, I never owned one until a couple of years ago but I like the way it sounds at the end of the username. :P

Out of all the times I've messed with Cucco's... I've never had them attack me personally until I tried blowing one up with a bomb (it was on accident). THEY JUST COME FROM NOWHERE. AND THEY ATTACK WITHOUT HESITATION!

Might have originated from Katekyo Hitman Reborn from good ol' Takeshi Yamamoto or some game. They just seem pretty neat and i'd love to own one.

So my username.


First things first, if anyone remembers back in the old Xbox days, mainly playing Halo 2, you will remember when everyone created funny gamertags. Like, one being Your mom. "You were killed by Your mom." So, that's where the style of the name actually came from.

Jump back a couple of years ago, I was having issues sticking to a gamertag that I liked. Or, well liked enough to keep permanently. I went through probably around 6 maybe 7 different name changes before landing on this one. ANYWHO, during a match of Halo: Reach, I was killed by about 40 hobos. No, seriously, the guys gamertag was "about 40 hobos". I could not stop laughing. I seriously nostalgia'd over that guys gamertag because it brought me back to the Halo 2 days. So, after that match I sent him a message saying I loved his gamertag. And at that point, I decided to change mine.

It wasn't a simple task, either. It took me a couple of days to actually come up with something original. So, when I actually thought about it, I decided to use something I love, Zombies! I tried using that guys idea, but it just didn't feel right. Felt unoriginal. Then I started to think, and thought that a riot is good because that's a large number. I mean, it's a large amount of people rioting, right? It's not just 5 people. There's probably a good hundred or more, and it really depends on exactly why you're rioting.

So there it was. Right in front of my face. My gamertag. A Zombie Riot. Then I started thinking about halo matches when it says who you're killed by. "You were killed by A Zombie Riot." then that got me thinking "How pathetic is it to die by a zombie riot? I mean seriously, any smart person would see the riot already. Or at least heard something. Haha, this is genius." And I've had it ever since.

It's probably been close to 2 years of having this gamertag, and I still don't want to change it. I love it to death! So now, I pretty much use it for everything because of how simple it is.

several years ago I started watching the Bomberman Jetters anime, and had stopped at one point. I picked it up again some years later and even before I finished watching it I was locked into a major obsession with the series for like over a year or so I think. my absolute favorite character in it is Mighty the Legendary Bomberman, and Jetters is the name of the space police force group he was the leader of, so I just came up with Mighty Jetters cause there was a YouTube user named ZeroJetters who uploaded the whole anime series (there was another named mistyjetters who uploaded other Jetters related videos). so, there you go, Mighty Jetters. :P

unrelated but sometime last year I got Mega Man X Collection for the GameCube (my cousin bought it for me from Game Stop or something, it was in an empty DVD box so he even drew a silly box art and stuck it in the front), so years before that I had sworn to not play any games from X2 onwards via emulator until I got it (I had already beaten X1 via ZSNES before I knew X Collection existed). probably about the time I got to X5, my obsession had started building but it hadn't truly bloomed until I beat it. after that I kind of developed a huge fangirlism for Axle the Red and Izzy Glow cause they're awesome. because of this I now use avatars of various artworks of Axle I find online on most every other website I have an account on, and now Axle the Red has become my secondary alias too. X3

EDIT: actually after seeing Zombie's post above, mine doesn't feel so long anymore. <:3

DUDE. I'm telling you, they're crazy. If you're trying to piss them off via sword, you have to continuously hit one a bunch of times. I'm not sure what all games it works in, but I know for a fact it works in A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time.

I want to know if it works in Majora's Mask... but that would require me to hook up my Wii...
