Anniversary Armageddon was a 4 day online ARMS event held from June 16th to June 19th, 2022 in celebration of the 5th anniversary of ARMS. The event as a whole was primarily organized by Dendy with further assistance from Mileve, Frosty, LOSER, Kholdstare, and Era. Each day of Anniversary Armageddon had a unique tournament including The Appetizer, Default Derby Deluxe, Customs Clash Championship, and Legends VS. A New Generation.

The event was initially teased on May 25th[1] with an official announcement following on May 29th, 2022[2]. The Twitter hashtag "#ARM5" was first used in these posts as a nod to it being a 5th anniversary celebration.
