He has been using it since he was a child.
ZeRo started playing Super Smash Bros. since Super Smash Bros. 64 released in 1999. Although he began participating in Super Smash Bros. tournaments in 2007, he soon took a break from it until 2010, when he primarily focused on Smash’s Brawl mode.
ZeRo continued participating in Smash tournaments into his adult years, when he started travelling to the US to participate in the Smash 4 melee tournaments there. He had to work $2 an hour jobs to pay for his tickets.
In January 2018, he announced his retirement from the tournament circuit in order to focus on a streaming career. He returned to tournament participation in November 2018. He has cited small prize pools and the long delays in payment of tournament winnings as one of his primary reasons for occasionally dropping out of the scene. Another reason was that he had already accomplished all that he could in the professional circuit.
ZeRo has dark brown hair and eyes. He keeps his hair short, with a rounded tuft towards the front of his head. He has a pencil moustache and a chin curtain beard. He wears black, thin-rimmed, rectangular glasses.
ZeRo proposed to his girlfriend in 2016.
ZeRo has earned over $180,000 USD from various Super Smash Bros. tournaments that he has entered.
He is also guestimated to have over 6,000 subscribers. This would net him between $15,000 - $21,000 USD per month, excluding advertising, tips and sponsorships.
