Ripha is an ARMS player and tournament organizer from Germany who mains Misango and Ninjara. He is considered to be one of the best players in the world and one of the current top players in the European scene. Alongside ocrim, Ripha has run EU ARMS Challenge since July 15th, 2018. He also organizes the The Moshpit event series.

Ripha first got into ARMS by playing in the first ARMS Global Testpunch events and subsequently buying the game after release. Throughout 2017, he played in multiple online event series including Mega League Monday, EU ARMS Challenge, and Fight Club. On December 11th of that year, with Mega League Monday 14, Ripha became the first European player to win in the series.

On January 13th, 2018, Ripha placed 7th in G7 ARMS Online which garnered over 100 entrants. Later in Summer of that year, Ripha became a moderator for the EU ARMS Discord server and collaborated with ocrim to bring EU ARMS Challenge events back on July 15th. Alongside running that series, he also continued to enter multiple different tournaments including some of the early Champions of the Era events. On December 16th, 2018, Ripha won the FellowsTV Open Circuit and later won the second event in early 2019 as well.

Throughout early 2019, Ripha held a winning streak in the Scrapstar Series EU events, winning the first ten. Later in the year, he also won The Gauntlet and the subsequent two events in that series as well. On January 11th, 2020, Ripha ran and also won the first EU ARMS PR Invitational. On March 28th, he placed 7th in Quarantined Rapport and placed 5th in the second event in June of 2020. On June 7th, Ripha ran The Moshpit which garnered a prize pot of $235, the largest ever in EU ARMS history at the time. He also organized many more events in that series throughout the rest of 2020 and 2021, with The Moshpit 3's prize pot of $786.50 being the second largest online ARMS tournament prize pot next to G7's $1000. Ripha entered many Champions of the Erapean Union events throughout 2020, winning eight in that year alone. On September 11th, 2021, Ripha assisted in organizing the NA and EU ARMS brackets for Vortex Gallery.

Throughout Ripha’s ARMS career, he has continued to be a strong adversary in competitive events while being an avid supporter of the community as well. He was ranked 5th on the EU ARMS Autumn Power Ranking 2019 and placed 1st in all subsequent Seasons up to the Summer of 2021.

Playstyle[edit | edit source]

As Ninjara, Ripha tends to play a keep away game, maintaining a distance to safely poke with the Triblast and Ice Dragon. He also occasionally utilizes the Slamamander to get around ARMS that counter his usual pairing and can also allow for more aggressive play.

With Misango, Ripha plays a more neutral heavy and reactionary game, typically staying at mid range. He tends to make more use of Misango’s pillars rather than his masks, but when he has a full Rush Gauge he will try to get the yellow mask. Once acquired, Ripha’s playstyle stays more or less the same however with the new goal of snubbing the other player’s Rush when they decide to use it. His use of the red and blue masks are more situational and could depend on his specific opponent or their loadout.

On Misango, Ripha often uses a loadout consisting of the Cracker, Coolerang, and Megawatt while occasionally switching the Megawatt for the Seekie.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In ARMS Fight Club 3.4, Ripha (then known as Rapha_MTH) fought against Raffa which led to Schkrimps jokingly saying that the loser would have to change their tag. After Ripha lost the set, a stream viewer suggested the name 'RIPha' which Schkrimps, and soon Ripha, approved of.[1]
  • With 40 wins, Ripha has the most EUAC wins out of all 12 unique victors.
    • He also has the highest win streak in the series, winning 7 tournaments in a row.
  • With 12 wins, Ripha has the most Champions of the Erapean Union wins out of all 8 unique victors.
    • He also has the highest win streak in the series, winning 5 events in a row.
  • With 35 wins, Ripha also has the most Scrapstar EU wins out of all 9 unique winners.
    • He has the highest win streak in the series too, regardless of region, winning 10 tournaments in a row.
  • Ripha's ARM loadouts while playing with Misango always feature a red, blue, and yellow ARM in reference to the character's different mask colors.
  • In the EU ARMS Discord server, July 21st is treated as "International Ripha Day". Many players changed their in-game name to a variant of 'Ripha' which led to 13 different Riphas on the ARMS Dashboard in 2018.[2]
