    Xinc wasn't originally my tagname... it was Mars, but then I got a lot of Sailor Mars jokes. At that time, I wrote a lot of drafts of fanfictions. One of my characters was a mix between me and my friend named Xinc.

    That name also reminds me of this: Francisco "Django" Bustamante, a Filipino Billiards Player. :)

    Well, i took this name when i first went to Shoddy battles. I wanted a cool name cause, well everyone wants one, i thought about hmm, hmmmm, hmmmmmmm, after thinking for a long time about 2 mins, i thought what about something related to Dark, Dark is cool isn't it? every villain is cool and they are Dark, so yeah Dark is cool, then i thought, what about Dark vs Light? it's a good name isn't it? then i thought nah too long and weird, so i removed the vs and made it Darklight, i thought that it must've been take so i renamed it to darklight99, after i joined PO i first went to /tr/ i took the same name there too, darklight99, after many guys at /tr/ asked why do i have that 99, i decided to see whether or not was taken, and to my surprise it wasn't so from that day onwards, my name became "Darklight". Cool name isn't it?

    Even though people assume I stole my name from Oak on the server, I didn't. I actually thought of the Oak in game and decided, what better Youtube name to have than to have a punny Pokemon name. It was Toxicroak + Professor Oak so it became Professor Croak, rather simple. I started uploading Pokemon Online battles because they were actually worth uploading and soon after, I started narrating battles and uploading to the PO Youtube. Anyways, Professor Croak isn't something I've always had as a username. Back in Shoddy it was probably BludgeonedBill or something.

    My name came from Junior year Drum Line back in high school. I came to percussion camp and the section leaders decided to give everyone a nickname on their name tag. Mine's just a play on my name....AleXANDER ****************PITZ (terrible censor is terrible :P).

    So ya, it pretty much stuck ever since, probably because of all the armpit jokes >.>
    I use it online for like everything though so w/e :3

    Plumbum is NOT because it is Latin for lead - it's been my nickname IRL for quite some time, since before I knew that Latin. Plum because it's the start of my surname and bum because... I got the nickname in primary school, okay?

    :P

    Well mine. Heh. Kinda awkward, I had a toy chipmunk which I called a chippymunky. (I don't know why, I was about 7). Well then and then it kinda stuck from there.

    Kefka Clood (Kurokefka Clood later on) is one of the epic villains in my rpg project "Shadows of Shardonia". Also will be one of the hardest optional super bosses in his Kurokefka form. He looks alot like FF6 Kefka but he is riding on a cloud... it's totally different character otherwise.

    My name means nothing, its just something I use because it has a nice ring to it.

    Then I took on TM1337 Falcon Punch cause, why not

    And then occasionally I've been using Meteor Smash, for punning purposes

    I first used my global username, RoryReloaded (which I've been using most everywhere since Year 3), before becoming dissatisfied with it. I quickly changed it to RedFlare, as Flare was taken and, well, most Flares are red, I guess (yeah, no thinking went into it, but...) After coming back after an inactive period of around four months, I then changed my name for the final time to Misao, as I was beginning to work out just how stupid RedFlare looked...

    In terms of origins, RoryReloaded stems from a compromised Wikipedia account; I had my first one, Rory666, destroyed by some imbecile, so as a clueless nine year old, I tacked Reloaded after my real name, under the impression that it looked good. RedFlare took absolutely no thinking whatsoever, and is only a nickname I use on IRC when I want to ghost something. Misao is the name of one of my favourite Lucky Star characters, and one I used on Smogon for around a month and a half.

    so my gamer tag is viashinomage. viashino comes from my all time favorite race in Magic the Gathering, a bunch of lizard people who slaughter people for wearing the skins of their reptilian cousins. Then mage because whenever i chose an rpg class it's a rouge or mage, and viashinorouge doesn't sound cool. then i got tired if people saying vash or vishi so i shortened to make it more convenient :P

    Touhou 6 Stage 2 boss, Touhou 7 Stage 1 midboss, Touhou 9 Playable character/potential opponent, Touhou 9.5 Scene 2 target, Touhou 12.3 Main playable character + On the jewel case and Touhou 12.8 Main and only playable character + on the jewel case.

    That should be enough to help you figure it out.

    On a serious note, I chose the name Cirno after seeing it mentioned in a video of Touhou Mother and [9] Cirno was because Cirno was taken. Cirno of 9 was because of Clans can't talk in Tohjo day.

    I've used this name for a long time online and even as an alias IRL.
    "Rehx" is the name of an Original Character of mine. I tend to try and act how Rehx would normally, save towards the people that have come to know me.
    And lets be honest, its an awesome name. XD

    In early 2012, I often played in the Battle Subway/Battle Institute in my Black cartridge using a Terrakion. I slapped a Choice Band on it, and it became ridiculously powerful with it equipped. I began to enjoy it immensely, and decided to name myself CBTerrakion after that beast of a Pokemon. It became Expert Belt Latios eventually as it was a fad for me, but that has ended.

    I seriously need to request a rename. This name sucks now, and I have used up my renames.[/HIDE]

    I used to have the name TheSpanishSkarmada, with no spaces because I didn't know that was allowed. It was a combination of the Spanish Armada, the overhyped navy of 16th century Spain that got wrecked by a couple of British sailboats, and Skarmory, my favorite Pokemon.

    However, I felt the name too unwieldy. Seeking a shorter yet still air-oriented name I decided on Windblown. Not only is it a nice two-syllable word, but it's also the name of a mercenary company in A Dance With Dragons, the 5th book in George R. R. Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire (which is a fantastic series, you should all read it).

    (also my sig is from it)

    My name is based off of my favorite pokemon. I wanted my name to reflect how I feel about Charizard. I also like calling myself a beast, because I am one. I combined the two and got BeastCharizard. It describes me and exactly how I feel about the most awesome pokemon to ever be made, especially if they are shiny. :)

    Psychic types are pretty cool. And as a letter, X is also pretty cool.

    So why not combine two Psychic type pokemon names and have an X exactly in the middle? Hence "Jynxatu".
