Shokio became well-known for his commentary on the video game industry, and also gained attention as a Super Smash Bros enthusiast. In one of his most famous videos, "Ridley is TOO Big!", a video released before SSB4, Shokio talks about why Ridley will never appear as a playable character in the game, presenting several valid points to support his argument. While many people agreed with his sentiments, some fans within the Smash community were outraged, and many parody and response videos were released. Almost two years after the video's release, Shokio occasionally trolls Ridley fans (as Ridley only appeared as a boss character in Smash 4).
Shokio also does video game streams, mainly of Smash Bros and Mortal Kombat X.
