How did Lil Majin get his name?

Lil Majin got his nickname from a Dragon Ball Z reference that was initially inspired by his older brother.

As most could guess, the “Majin” name is a Dragon Ball Z reference. My big brother went by the alias of “MajinSSJ6Goku” on multiple forums and message boards and I figured that I’d go by “Lil MajinSSJ6Goku” since I was his little brother. However, the name was way too long and easily made fun of; therefore, I shortened it to “Lil Majin.” My brother also shortened his name after a few years to “Big Majin.” The rest is history!

How long has Lil Majin played Tekken?

Lil Majin has been playing Tekken for more than two decades, first playing the game when the original Tekken was released.

I’ve been playing Tekken since Tekken 1. I’ve forgotten how old me and my brother were when we started Tekken, but it has definitely been about 20 years! My brother and I have always loved fighting games and with Tekken being our absolute favorite, it was easy to keep playing it every iteration since the game kept getting better and better with each.
