I really like jigglypuff, and wrath of the reset bomb is my favorite level in kid Icarus: uprising, which I was having a huge kick of at the time I made this name.

It's a mixture of all my nicknames/full name. A friend slapped me with it in college and it's been my screen name for stuff ever since.

My username is just my nickname. Mac is pretty much the abbreviated form of my full name, and "the Writer" is because I wrote a lot of fanfictions.

My initials are ARC. When I first really got into online gaming I used the handle xxArchangelusxx (oh halo) And keeping with the theme of heavenly/Divine It progressed as follows:

Archangelus>Daitenshi(took japanese I'm college >ArcDaitenshi (so my old clan mates could recognize me)>Empyrean>Empyreus (Latin of empyrean)>ArcEmpyreus.

I think I'm Empyreus in Splatoon atm.

I usually use something that has to with dreaming or the night sky. dream21 has just been the go-to. I use 21 since I've used it on the end of usernames since I was 7 on kids games, and anything else just seems wrong now.

I went with XenoPixel because I like the word xeno, and the word pixel. That's basically all there is to it.

Well, on most other websites, I am ThatGuyYouKnow, but I switched it up for ThatSquidYouKnow because Splatoon.

Part of my last name and my middle name. I've had various usernames in the past, but stuck with this one in the past few years since it is similar to what my brother would use for his.

I got my username based off what I started out as on SmashBoards, where I named myself Cliffjumper after an Autobot in the Transformers. Ever since then I changed my name on there to Equestrian Flyer.

I picked Cliff because it's just a name that stuck with me on SmashBoards even now that I'm not Cliffjumper anymore in that site.

I was playing Adventure quest....Man what was it.. 9 years ago? I was still very young and I was in love with Dragons at the time...Soooo Dragon! But of course it was taken -_- So I needed something to put on the end of it... I hated having numbers in my name so I needed something to fit on the end of Dragon... I remember looking around the page and seeing an Ad for a Cruddy Naruto game.. So I mashed Naruto and Dragon together to get Dragonuto! Stuck with it ever since, never even thought about changing it :p

I found this website looking up info about the Aerospray RG and so I just had Aero in my head (which is a pretty cool word) and I added top to the end of it

It was the user name chosen for me from computer programming, it is my last name and the first 3 letters of my first name. It is extremely lame. But I have definately grown to like it after the last couple of years.

Cherry is slightly different than my real name. I'm uncreative.
