Biff, ARMS League Commentator
"Hi there, ladies and gents! I'm Biff, your trusty ARMS commentator!"

Biff is a commentator for ARMS League matches.[1] He appears in announcement videos as a host and in-game in Grand Prix to provide fighter introductions and tips to the player.


Biff is a roughly humanoid, yellow being of unknown species with a large, oblong head that has a hand protruding from the top of it, usually clenched in a fist but opening when he is surprised. Like most of the fighters in ARMS, he has spiraled irises. Similarly, he also appears to have extendable ARMS. The only clothes he wears are a scarlet, diamond-shaped mask and a navy blue bow tie.
