Nairoby’s story “Nairo” Quezada has evolved greatly over the past year from the exiled Super Smash Bros. legend to a brighter future. But that doesn’t mean he’ll sit still all the time. Time away from the stream
The former Smash Ultimate fourth player recorded an ad reaction video for Sephiroth̵7;s surprise DLC released in December 2020, and he was finally able to release it with a strong welcome from the community.
Sephiroth’s announcement came at last year’s The Game Awards, with Nairo watching the event with some friends on Discord.
He was able to rightly guess that this fighter would likely represent Square Enix with the inclusion of the Dragon Quest Hero in the trailer, although it wouldn’t hit him until ‘One Winged Angel’ kicked in, where the hype began to flow. Came out as a big fan of Final fantasy.
The community’s response to the video made Nairo another hit on Twitter, with other players showing support who saw pro re-create the content while others continued to push his ban. By Twitch

Nairo faces allegations of sexual misconduct in July 2020 that left the 24-year-old banned from competing, community events and streaming.

He sought legal help behind the scenes and, combined with additional information made public, led many organizers to lift the ban on the competition.
The pro plans to return to streaming on YouTube this week as his Twitch account remains banned, which could create problems joining the tournament currently playing on the platform.
