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 roughly humanoid, but he has a large, oblong head with a forearm and hand protruding from the top of it. Like most of the fighters in ARMS, he has spiraled irises. Similarly, he also appears to have extendable ARMS. He wears a red, diamond-shaped mask and a navy blue bow tie.
