Let's see:

)Austin: my real name, duh)
)Zien: My ZU/internet name, as well as Zelda Ninja.  Zien is the pronunciation of "ZN", or the first letters of each of the two words as presented in "Zelda Ninja".
)Maximum Pink: If you didn't figure it out already, it's from Kirby: Right Back At Ya's theme song.  It goes well with my username color. :)

[spoiler]
Long ago and far away, i was playing Super Smash Bros Melee; upon which i saw the system message:

Quote
Dr. Mario's In the House! His perscription? KO!
- Source (http://www.funtrivia.com/en/VideoGames/Super-Smash-Bros-Melee-14924.html)

Well, ever the curious one, i thought it would make sense, that the form the mentioned prescription would take would be of the Pill's that Dr. Mario Throws - hence, the "pill" part.

Pilling on top of that curiosity, what flavor would these pills be? ..... "Tacos"!

I finally put them together / in order when i needed to come up with a new gamer tag to put on my School's 
Gamer's Club Personalized T-Shirts.
[/spoiler]


Not an exciting story i know........but it is one i get asked about when people see the shirt.

I can barely remember.

I think it's because I got my first online account when I was about seven, and I had just visited an aquarium, and was obsessed with the otters there. At the time, my family lived in the California rockies.

It made sense at the time, and I use it(or some variation) almost everywhere.

I… don't really know, thought it was a good nickname to use on the Internet. I've used it almost exclusively since circa 2004, or the variation "FireyFly" when "FireFly" is already in use. A previous nickname of mine (which I still use in Pokémon contexts, at least sometimes) is "Cyndaquil," due to being my favourite Pokémon.

Post by: Seritinajii on June 23, 2010, 03:33:19 AM
Seritinajii is a name that I saw on Neopets and thought looked cool, so I used it. ...then later I found out that there is no pet or anything by that name except for the one I made after knowing the name. I was always afraid before finding that out that the previous owner of the name would get angry at me.... but when I search my name, EVERYTHING that comes up is for me.

So where did I get my name? I don't think I'll ever know, but I like to think it came completely from my imagination.

Post by: Matt on June 28, 2010, 08:43:28 PM
It's my universal nickname. I have everyone call me Matt. It's what I go by. The only people that still use "Matthew" are a few family members.

I joined another forum, and to be unique, I chose this name. It's stupid and it has no meaning, but I use it for most accounts I have. It'll stick.

Post by: Nickno on June 28, 2010, 10:07:16 PM
When I was little, family members would say "Nick, no" when I would do something wrong, and they said it so much I thought it was my name, so that's how I got Nickno. lol
I also sometimes go by Ironix, which is the name my character in an abandoned Sprite comic me and my cousin used to make.

I used to be a Matrix whore, so I used Neo on Zelda Universe. Over time, it just stuck, and now it's universal. I just wish the people who knew me would call me "Justin." I'm pointing at YOU, Mases and Steve! >:|

Level 3 is the default level of a CPU in SSBB and in many other games, and I used this when I needed a nickname for competitive smash, and it kinda just stuck.

It's a combination of my NIWA usernames:

Lazor was derived from Metroid Wiki (Zero Lazor)
Shroom was derived from Super Mario Wiki (Pie Shroom, but now I'm Homestar Runner)
Midna was derived from ZeldaWiki.org (Minda of Darkness, I made a typo on the wiki but got it right on the forum)
Freak was derived from my username on the official Super Mario Wiki Forum (Jesus Freak)

Yay for hybrids!

Blue Ninjakoopa is the Ninjakoopa garbed in my favorite color, blue, and is seen as an option in one of Chuck Quizmo's quizzes in Paper Mario.

I think the Koopa Bros. are, like, the coolest. Ever.

I just happened to like "Soujiro" as a name. "Elric" comes obviously from FMA (liked it and like it still), but it has another background. A friend had that as her "nick last name", so I chose it after her.

Some of you (read: one) may have known me back when I went by JKaizer - I got tired of the name and at that time, I was watching the Pokemon AG episodes... found a ninja named Koroku, and I've taken the name ever since.


(I also go by a million other names too, soooo...)

Post by: TurtwigA on November 03, 2010, 01:37:04 AM
I got A from the English alphabet. If you can't find it, just look before B. Turtwig A is a slightly longer story, though is very short in actuality. Last year, on June 2 I believe, I tried to sign up with another name, based on my current favorite video game character at the time, Dry Bones. However, the account creation was then locked. Two months later, I just noticed it was unlocked, but decided to go after my favorite character of the wiki's focus. Since Turtwig was already taken, I just added the space and A. And that is Turtwig A's formation, though I started preferring Turtwig's A-B-Cs for a time.

Solar Dragon. Well, I used this nick on another forum after I thought it sounded cool. This was about 4 years ago. Since then, it is the nickname I always use on every website. If someone steals my nick, I go crazy! It is me. I am Solar Dragon.

It's a bit of a long story. I had thought that Ramblin' Evil Mushrooms were the coolest thing ever when I first played EarthBound. I had even suggested they be the subject of my 4th grade class T-shirts, so we became Baker's Evil Mushrooms. This had made her start playing EarthBound and she eventually became obsessed with it.   :o

This reminds me of how I could've been obsessed with EB as far back as 4-5th grade if it wasn't me failing so hard at it and getting killed by the Sharks, giving up on it for another 4-5 years or so. Curses! >:V (Having a teacher obsessed with EB would be awesome, I would imagine.)

I'm... actually unsure of where I got the name Tina from. It's certainly not my real name. I just decided it sounded nice and it stuck for whatever reason. Which is funny, because I had like... 5 other nicknames online before I randomly settled with this one.

If Tina's taken, though, I usually go with "platinatina". Which is from when I first got Pokemon Platinum in October 08 (my first import, har har), and it just kind of rolls off rather nicely. (Although I was retarded with katakana back then and accidentally named my trainer "Raina" instead of Tina. That's also stuck with me, although not as much.)

I've already replied to a similar topic on DKC Atlas myself so I'll copy it from there:

My nick has a large backstory to it...

When I was younger, I used to be addicted to this game called "Ratchet: Deadlocked". I was a big Ratchet & Clank game fan at the time (nowadays not so much), and this was the first major game that I got into playing online with. Well, my early days I was known as "Mr. E Player" or "Justin2496" (you can guess my real name now, right?). Initially, I was a rocket n00b. Wasn't everyone? Grab the rocket, strafe, and FIRE. I'm not talking Halo-like rockets that have instant-kills and huge explosions, more like thin missiles fired from an RPG that take about half your life away. Not to mention those lava mods. Or those freeze mods if you're that cheap (hit---->extremely easy hit & kill). Heck, our most epic battles consisted of... strafing, and firing, usually resulting in narrow misses 99% of the time unless we were about to go the other way ^_^.

Anyway, my early days were somewhat slow, until I met a username under the name, HavocReaper48. He and I got along and played a ton of team battles together, with the clan "STR8 [email protected]" (lol). Our team color was usually maroon. We were both such rocket n00bs, but we together slowly got better, moved onto different weapons, and improved. Except for that sniper rifle without any aimer when not scoping, never caught on to that. It was usually the Tempus, unlimited ammo, jet boots, 5 v 5...

Somewhere along the end of the line, though, he plain disappeared. Gone. He never logged on again and did not even remove me or anything from his friends list (I still have him on now). Just, disappeared, I never heard from him again, and I never knew what happened.

So, I keep this nick in memory of our noobish glories...  ;D

Originally my nick was Maxite17 back in the late 90s, (I randomly came up with the nickname, and added 17 to the end since it my favorite number), but after I moved around a few online communities I decided to drop the 17 and just stick with Maxite, and kept it that way.
