T.O.JOE, formerly known as Jon Dog, is an ARMS player and tournament organizer from the United States. He has organized the RUSH tournament series as well as Smash'N'Splash 4 and Smash'N'Splash 5. T.O.JOE is also the owner and creator of Ohio ARMS. He has been ranked #2 on every Ohio ARMS Power Ranking that he has been active for as well alongside being a member of the Ohio ARMS Power Ranking staff.

In March of 2019, after the end of Ohio ARMS' fifth Season, T.O.JOE decided to retire from ARMS to pursue other things, like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and speedrunning The Touryst. Despite this retirement, he still had active involvement with Smash'N'Splash 5 as well as Pressure 2. Near the middle of Ohio ARMS' seventh Season, on December 15, 2019, he made the official name change from Jon Dog to T.O.JOE. This new name wasn't used in an ARMS event until March 2020 when he came out of retirement for Quarantined Rapport in preparation for the ARMS North American Online Open. A combination of Nintendo's newfound support of ARMS and the prospect of an ARMS fighter coming to Smash Ultimate brought T.O.JOE back to playing in Ohio's primary event, The Biweekly Procrastination on April 5, 2019. Due to how late this was in the Season however, he did not qualify for the Season 7 Power Ranking, but his activity afterward warranted him another #2 spot on Season 8's ranking. A few months later, in early 2021, T.O.JOE once again retired from ARMS, this time to focus on school and pursue personal projects such as forming the music group The Trapeze Artists.
