About

ShortBloom's Mii Gunner Combo Video, known colloquially as the Racist Mii Gunner video, refers to a viral video in which Super Smash Brothers Ultimate player and Mii Gunner main ShortBloom responded to backlash for his use of the N word with a gameplay video showing off his combos, interspersed with over-the-top edgy justifications for his actions. The video went on to become a niche joke in the Super Smash Brothers Ultimate community, as people mocked ShortBloom's gameplay and dialogue.

Origin

On September 21st, 2020, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate player ShortBloom[1] posted a video justifying his use of the N-word, accompanied by some of his Mii Gunner gameplay. Notable moments include him writing, "To those who wonder why I did this, the answer is simple… I worship no God!" before the video cuts to several minutes of his Mii Gunner clips. Towards the end of the video, he switches from clips showing his character walking around a custom stage while text laid out his more detailed defenses, comparing those who criticized him for using the N-word to the Catholic Church's treatment of non-believers. The original video was deleted but was reuploaded by YouTuber Trogdorbad on October 10th, 2020 (shown below).



Spread

Though ShortBloom was a relatively minor Smash player, his video began spreading through Twitter roughly a month after it was posted. On October 8th, 2020 Twitter user @GsFlint[2] posted about it, gaining over 70 retweets and 670 likes in two years (shown below, left). Many joked about how his response to a racism controversy was to make a combo video. On October 8th, Redditor @abeflorida[3] posted a parody thumbnail of Shortbloom, gaining over 60 retweets and 540 likes (shown below, right).
