| Chief Arino|
"Chief" Shinya Arino is the host of the Japanese television series GameCenter CX and a wrestler in VGCW. While he had limited success as a singles wrestler in the past, Arino is now one of the highest rated wrestlers in VGCW. He is a former Casual Champion, and is also a former two-time Co-Op Champion as part of GameCenter FU alongside the Angry Video Game Nerd up until the Nerd's retirement.
In Real LifeEdit
Do you know the Kacho? Shinya Arino's been challenging classic video games in the hit Japanese TV series GameCenter CX (also known as Retro Game Master in localizations). His show even got its own video game on the Nintendo DS, Retro Game Challenge, which features parodies of NES games and stars Arino playing those games at home as a child, with a friend over.
Unsatisfied with taking on the top games from the old days, Arino tosses away the controller for a chance to take on video game characters with his own hands and feet!
In VGCW Edit
Season 1: I'd like to meet this Wrestler.Edit
"Arino-san, since this is a special challenge... please try to achieve victory without any help." "EEHHHH?!?"
After being trained by Inoko MAX, Arino made his debut in the 2012-11-22 Royal Rumble, but without his trusty Yoga Fire, it resulted in utter failure. Vowing to perform better for both his fans and himself, he performed admirably in his first singles match with Captain Falcon. Although he did not get the victory, Arino, armed with his Kacho Kicks, Last Continue and boundless reserves of perseverance and heart, earned the respect of VGCW followers and established himself as a fan favorite. Those qualities also managed to impress one other gamer that's notoriously difficult to please, namely the Angry Video Game Nerd, during their Iron Man match, and their match ended with the two of them shaking hands and forming GameCenter FU. Their chemistry was found immediately, and with just two matches together, Arino found his first taste of gold by taking the Co-Op Championship from Team Fortress, which he and his partner would defend against Raw Power before losing it to The Practice.
While having since lost his belt, the Kacho's bravery in singles matches continued to shine. His spirit in an instant classic of a submission match with Segata Sanshiro was neverending, forcing management to call the match a draw when both men could not continue and technical difficulties arose.
Season 2: The Return of Wrestling-Ring Tactics!Edit
Arino began receiving specific match-tailored challenges on the 2013-01-13 edition of VGCW when he took on newcomer Sabin in which he tried to not get suplexed. The challenge was failed as Sabin suplexed Arino's unrelenting spirit (and body) fourteen times before Arino would finally yield.Arino would then call on his partner for assistance and, on the 2013-01-17 show, Arino was back in business again. He fought against The Returners with his tag team partner, AVGN, in a Table match where the only way to eliminate your opponent was to put them through a burning table. Arino actually managed to do this, performing an amazing dropkick attack from the edge of the ring which resulted in Locke flying through a burning table, thus defeating him. Sadly, the match had to be called due to technical difficulties, but the memory of Arino's breathtaking stunt would endure, much like the man himself. Unfortunately, Arino's retry would end in failure as, in the rematch held on 2013-01-22, he would be put through a table by Sabin in what was described as a disgusting ordeal.
Arino would finally clinch his first singles victory on 2013-01-28 when he won a First Blood match against Dante. Unfortunately, he was immediately ambushed by Mr. L after the match for no clear reason.
Season 3: Project FU: General ManagerEdit
GameCenter FU took part in the tag team tournament held on 2013-02-10 to decide which team would get a title shot. Arino and AVGN fought their way to the final match, where they faced Gerudo Skies. Unfortunately for them, it was Gerudo Skies who won the final match and the #1 contender spot. GameCenter FU later fought against Nappa and Vegeta in a tag team match on 2013-02-18. Arino was given the challenge of pinning Nappa. Things seemed to be going well, but tragedy suddenly struck as Arino got stuck in the ring and ref counted him out. Was it Vegeta's Saiyan trick? Or did Arino fail to look at time limit? Either way, GameCenter FU were disqualified, giving the match to the Saiyans.
To help soothe the pain of their recent tag team misfortunes, Arino and partner AVGN would both receive enough votes in the poll VGCW held to determine the participants in The Great Tournament. Truly, the Kacho had never before had an opportunity like this presented to him. Would the Chief conquer all and rank up to "Commissioner" Arino? Would his loyal friend take the prize? Or would they both fail and end up defeated? A heavy weight rested on his shoulders indeed, but Arino and his fans had only one phrase in mind: "Kacho, ON!"
In the first round of The Great Tournament, Arino faced off against Tingle. He was given advice before the match by AVGN had a direct challange given from his co-worker: don't fuck up. Arino took his advice to heart and delivered a swift beating, though not without his fair share of trouble; the crafty creeper managed to copy Arino's signature move and use it against him. As Arino stood in peril, Tingle prepared a devastating diving attack from the ropes, but as he flew towards him, Arino caught him mid-air and countered with a Last Continue to end the match. Completing his challenge, Arino would later celebrate this victory and his birthday three days later.
His next challenge was a big one, as he faced off against Gaben in the second round. Arnio complained about such a difficult foe coming up so early, but bravely took on the challenge. After sending himself through Table-San, suffering a giant Wallet Squeeze outside of the ring, and, well, being overall dominated by Gaben throughout the match, Arino couldn't muster enough Kacho power to defeat his mighty opponent. While he managed to lift Gaben, completing the very difficult challenge set for him, both he and his partner lost their matches and were now out of the tournament, meaning they had more time to torture themselves playing games.
Following his exit from the tournament, Arino tried his hands at earning himself a shot at the Casual Championship in a six-man HIAC contest. The Kacho was determined to make this his night as he delivered a Last Continue to both Segata and Mike Haggar in the contest, but it was tough to score a pinfall with so many other men in the bout. Eventually, it was Wario who would catch the Chief off guard and deliver a devastating dropkick that would knock out the Kacho and once again prevent him from getting that title shot that he had been trying to earn for himself.
Season 4: Arino's FortuneEdit
Season four was by and large more of the same for Arino, more or less. He and AD James faced Team America in a tornado tag elimination match to be part of a number one contenders match which saw the two game masters victorious. A later match against The Elite Two also saw them come up on top, securing a title shot and a chance for redemption for GameCenter FU. However, when left to earn a title shot by himself, he was befallen by his usual misfortune. Entering last in the Royal Rumble held at the beginning of the season ended the same way it always did and, when he was pit in a cage match against DK, Wario and Dr.Wily on April 26th, he couldn't quite seal the deal. The Kacho found himself spending most of the match preventing Wily from escaping, but the one time he focused on preventing Wario's escape, DK did as well and Wily seized his chance to escape, causing Arino to yet again fall short.
Arino, tenacious as ever, participated in the 2013-05-11 King of the Ring tournament, and pulled a massive upset against previous VGCW champion, Dr. Eggman in the first round. Though Arino was beat nearly senseless in normal Kacho fashion within first two minutes, he made a huge comeback by repeatedly slamming Eggman from top of turnbuckle, and swifftly striking the doctor's lanky legs again and again. As Arino displayed the power play and trapped Eggman into a pattern, he landed a Last Continue to crack the Eggman. Unfortunately on the next round, this tactics failed to work against 'W+M1' tactics of the Pyro and Arino was defeated unceremoniously by a piledriver.
Four days later, he and AVGN was utterly manhandled by Gerudo Skies for their tag team championship match. But getting up from insurmountable adversity with his disposition intact is what Arino does best and he entered his next match, a singles bout against Kazuya Mishima, ready to do his best. The match went back and forth, with Kazuya slowly gaining the upper hand, but Arino's pattern recognition fortuitously kicked in at just the right time and, when Kazuya went for a cross body splash from the top rope, Arino repeated the feat he pulled off against Tingle: he caught Kazuya in mid-air, hauled him over his shoulders and delivered a Last Continue to put his opponent down for the count.
End Game 4: Road to Bowser!Edit
Arino would make an appearance during End Game 4 in his first Extreme Rules match. However, he would be put up against a former champion not seen at all throughout Season 4: Bowser. Many expected the returning King of Awesome to be one step too far for the Chief. However, spurred on by his fans, Arino managed to hold his own against the Koopa King, and with the help of the weapons around the ring, the Chief unleashed a Last Continue upon Bowser and did what The Dark Lord couldn't: pin Bowser for the 3-Count. With these recent victories, and the belief of his fans, things started to look up for the Chief going into Season 5.
Season 5: Hail to the ChiefEdit
Following his impressive victories during Season 4, Arino would be entered into a No.1 Contenders Match during the Season 5 Premiere to determine a challenger to Mike Haggar's Title; he would have to go through Kefka Palazzo and Little Mac to earn it though, in VGCW's first Triple Threat Match in over seven months. They would not make it easy for the Chief though, as they would quickly team up on him, eventually getting speared through a barricade by Mac. However, Arino, determined not fail to complete Punch-Out again, fought back, suplexing the Referee in a fit of rage, pulling off the Last Continue on Mac, and attempting to put Kefka through Table-San. However, Mac would get onto the table and get himself put through instead...right as Arino dived onto the table, dazing both him and Mac, and sending Lakitu into a state of depression. However, despite all his heart, he could only watch in shock as Mac pinned Kefka for the 3-count, literally freezing him.
Once again so close to victory only to drop the controller, Arino decided to once again ask AD James for his assistance in the Co-Op division. The two were able to best their old punching bags, the Game Grumps, in a match that was much closer than one would expect on 2013-07-31. In fact, it was Arino who scored a rare pin fall for his team. This led GameCenter to a title bout against Wario Ware Inc., the team that had done what GameCenter FU could not in besting Gerudo Skies for the Co-Op Championship. Fought under tornado rules on 2013-08-23, the contest was once again a close one. Arino had held his own against Waluigi but was about to fall victim to The Lousy Elbow when AVGN managed to miraculously lift Wario up for his sit-down spinebuster. It was enough to put down Mr. Money and give the Kacho his second taste of Co-Op Championship gold.
Not content with sitting on his Co-Op Championship win, Arino returned to singles on September 7th to face Nappa. Early on, the contest seemed to be in Nappa's favour, with the Chief being unable to gain much of an offence against the Saiyan. However, Arino has managed to clear Dragon Ball games before, and this time would be no exception, as he would fight back against Nappa, delivering plenty of blows, and, to guarantee the victory, speared him through the Barricade, then returned to the ring as the Referee counted to 10, giving him the win and avenging the challenge he failed long ago on February 18th.
Following his victory over the Saiyan, Arino celebrated by purchasing a large amount of Dragon Ball Memorabilia, one of these items was a replica Dragon Ball...or so he thought. As it turned out, the 'Replica' he had purchased was, in fact, an actual Dragon Ball. Confronted by The Practice on September 17th, this discovery was brought to light, The Chief was challenged by Dr. Wily, with the winner keeping the Dragon Ball. Suddenly, memories of failing to complete Mega Man 2 came flooding back to him. Determined not to fail a third time, Arino headed to the ring to face the Evil Genius in a Last Man Standing match. He would not be stopped once again, as he was able to dominate Alberto Del Wily for the majority of the match, and spear him through the Barricade. Leaving Wily barely moving on the floor, he climbed back into the ring to wait for the Referee to count to 10 to give him the win. For now, the Chief held onto his Dragon Ball.
The following show, GameCenter FU were confronted yet again, this time by WarioWare Inc. with their intention once again being Arino's Dragon Ball. When presented with the opportunity to pick his opponent for later in the evening, The Chief had no idea who to pick, he picked randomly. Unfortunately for him, he ended up picking Wario, who stole Arino's belt while his eyes were closed, wearing it in his entrance as a means of taunting the Kacho. Despite his experience clearing Mario games, he was overwhelmed by Wario, yielding his Dragon Ball to WarioWare Inc., but managing to reclaim his belt while Wario was distracted at least.
Following AVGN's victory over Sagat, Arino checked on his partner backstage to see if he was okay. Upon learning of AD James' status, The Chief encouraged him to please do his best against Team America at End Game 5, with him replying how they'll show the 'overpatriotic fucks' how a real team fights. And so, at End Game 5, Gamecenter FU went into their defence at End Game 5 in high spirits, with both of them, Arino in particular, hailing to their original entrances from early in their wrestling careers. Both of them showed the teamwork which led them to being the fan favourites, with AVGN pinning Duke Nukem to successfully defend their titles.
Season 6: Barcode WrestlerEdit
Following a successful season, Arino took to the ring once again in the Season 6 Debut to face the down on his luck Charles Barkley in a Last Man Standing match. Expecting a rather easy match considering the position Barkley was in, the Kacho was in for a rude awakening as he would end up being slammed and jammed all over by the B-Baller, evening getting Chaos Dunked onto a chair. But Arino has proven that he is anything but a quitter, as despite the battering he suffered from CM Dunk, the Kacho was able to pull off the moves necessary to knock Barkley out for the 10 Count, giving him the victory.
On December 10th, Arino once again teamed up with AVGN to take on rising stars Sonic & Knuckles for the Co-Op Championship. Although he had already cleared Sonic the Hedgehog, the Chief made it his personal challenge to slow down Sonic with an unrelenting assault. However, he ended up hitting the canvas repeatedly instead. Maybe he was really beat up about not collecting all the Chaos Emeralds? Nonetheless, Knuckles' ineptitude would be the decisive factor that lost them the match, as when AVGN grabbed Sonic into a rollup pin, Knuckles was too slow to break the pin, giving the victory to GameCenter FU, defending the title once again.
After this match, as a Christmas gift to the fans, AVGN and Arino had a one-on-one match. Once again, the Nerd won, but neither or the two had hard feelings...And good thing too, because The Saiyans were their next opponents for the Co-Op titles. Gamecenter FU took down the Saiyans in a surprisingly short match. However, later that evening, he could only watch on as his partner fought valiantly for the VGCW Championship, but was squeezed to a pulp.
Season 7: The Reign (Almost) Never EndsEdit
The Kacho made his first Season 7 appearance attempting to cheer up his partner for losing his VGCW Championship match to The Gaben. Thankfully, AVGN was not willing to lay down, and would continue fighting to get a shot again, while reassuring that he was 1/2 of the Greatest Co-Op Champions of all time. A week later, he faced the eternal jobber, Gary Oak. Despite Gary's reluctance to stay down, The Chief pulled through in the end to win. After his victory however, he was attacked from behind Backstage by Illidan Stormrage. Despite giving everything he had, in the end, Arino was not prepared, and got a serious beating for it.
Arino had no time to rest however, as The Practice were named the #1 Contenders to the Co-Op Championship a few weeks later, and on March 4th, in Tornado Tag Elimination, GameCenter FU defended their title once again, further cementing the belief that there may be nobody capable of defeating them. When a tag team tournament was annouced, the Chief and his partner would take to the ring for a promo, where the Nerd bragged that no one could defeat him and the Chief, the winner of the tournament didn't matter, and that he and the Chief would hold the titles until August and beyond. No one could stop them.
Perhaps the Chief should have warned the Nerd about the dangers of hubris, for the tournament would be delayed, and as a stopgap, the surprisingly resurgant team of Shadaloo would emerge as No 1 Contenders. Entering their Tornado Tag match on April 15th, many VGCW fans and possibly even the Nerd and Chief themselves expected the match to just be a brief speed bump on their road. In the vein of games like Spy Hunter, though, it turned out to be a car crash, as FU's reknowned teamwork would fail them at a crucial time, causing Kacho to be pinned, and then the Nerd shortly thereafter. The upset would be the team's final match of Season 7; the Chief likely spent most of it apologizing.
Season 8: The Iron ChiefEdit
The Chief, perhaps sensing with the Nerd it was time to let their batteries recharge, would spend the first several shows of Season 8 wrestling in singles. Kacho would fall to Adam Jensen in his first match on May 20th, but prove he was looser than Groose on June 10th, showing the pompadour'd former Ranger how one who'd bested the old-school Zelda games wrestled. The win propelled him into a Triple Threat Tables Match to determine the #1 Contender to the Casual Championship. Unfortunately for the Chief, his efforts amounted to nothing, as he was put through a table by Air Man. From then on, his bad luck continued, with a brief glimpse of hope retained however by defeating Sonic the Hedgehog by throwing him into the air, catching him, and hitting him with the Last Continue. But despite all this bad luck, nothing could wipe the smile of his face.
Well, almost nothing.
In a tragic turn of events, Arino found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. In The Practice's plans for World Domination, they accidently robotizicized poor Arino, transforming him into AIN. 008 - Metal Arino. It was a very dark day for the VGCW Universe. Thankfully, or in The Practice's case, unfortunately, Metal Arino was still as in-character as he usually is, made evident when he was sent out to face Proto Man, and in his attempt to get into the ring...he tripped. He was immediately taken away by The Practice, embarrased by this turn of events. The Practice still dragged him around though, up until the night of End Game 8, where Gabe Newell attempted to, in his own words, "free the shit out of him". Frustrated by the turn of events, Wily finally snapped at Metal Arino, threatening him with being locked away. But he made one very big mistake, as in his rage-fuelled rant, he gave Arino a Challenge; to become stronger. And how did Arino respond? The only way he knew how:
Suddenly, the Robot Masters surrounding the ring reverted to their normal selves; Metal Arino absorbed their energy, transforming into Super Metal Arino! However, there was one slight problem: now that he was so powerful, he stopped taking orders from The Practice, for he was his own master now. His first goal was to take the Roboticization Device and turn The Practice, Gabe Newell, and everyone in the crowd, into his robot slaves. With this revelation, the crowds began to panic, with the large majority bursting into fits of mass hysteria, while some willingly welcomed their new Metal Overlord. While this was going on, Gabe decided that enough was enough, and he was going to make Super Metal Arino leave...except that instead, he made Gabe submit, frightening him...which turned him into Nightmare Gabe, who proceeded to deliver a No-Holds Barred Beatdown, and then some, to Super Metal Arino, defeating him.
Season 9: The Chief Is Not DeadEdit
After such a brutal assault, many were concerned that Arino had passed on to the afterlife. Thankfully, The Chief was not dead, as he was slowly recovering at Twoson Hospital alongside other recovering patients (including a woman in a yellow apron). From then, fans flooded the Kacho with countless letters of support and well-wishing. Around this time, he was voted into the second Great Tournament by the fans, despite his injuries. Unfortunately, a week before his scheduled fight with Duke Nukem, he found himself in a situation where he may not recover in time for his match, meaning that either Duke will advance automatically, or he will find a substitute until he recovered. With this line of thinking, many assumed he would ask his friend AD James to take his place...but unfortunately, the Nerd announced that he was retiring from the ring a week later. So then who would take Arino's place?
Nobody! Despite his injuries, Arino still travelled to the arena to take part in his scheduled match, showing the heart that people had grown to love him for, even managing to shake off a Stunner, before he eventually succumbed to the Megaton Drop. Now that AVGN was gone, Arino was left to his own devices. Two weeks after their match, Duke asked Arino to be his tag-team partner against the VGCW Champion Scorpion and a mystery partner (who turned out to be Donkey Kong). In a brutal contest, Duke eventually tapped out to DK. Unfortunately for Arino, losing in the first round of the Great Tournament meant he had been entered into the Losers Tournament...and his opponent in the Quarter Finals was The Prince of Darkness himself. The Kacho showed his usual heart, but he had never completed a Castlevania game before! He took a Dark Burial to descend further into the Losers Tournament...against King Koopa, his arch-nemesis, succumbing to the King of Awesome. However, the Kacho would eventually redeem himself in the Losers Final, successfully completely the challenge, "Don't become the King of all Jobbers" when he beat Waluigi in a great match with two Last Continues; thus ending a rough, injured season on a high note.
Season 10: Casual Game MasterEdit
The beginning of Season 10 gave us an Arino determined to prove himself after nearly being crowned VGCW's biggest jobber. He needed an impressive win to truly mark his return to form. Such victories are easier said than done, however, and he was given his opportunity in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination match against 3 strong comptetitors: Guile, Groose and Bowser. Faced against such overwhelming odds, including one of the men who beat him in The Great Tournament 2, not many gave Arino much hope going into the match. Arino defied any expectations of jobbing, however, going toe-to-toe with Guile, and eventually catching the Unamerican American in midair to excecute a hellacious Last Continue that put him away for the 3-count. Arino didn't waste time basking in the moment of this impressive conquest, immediately turning to face Groose, who had just earned an upset of his own by successfully bullying Bowser out of the match. Grooseslams were met by Kacho kicks as each competitor gave it their all to start Season 10 off on a win. After a decent exchange, Arino displayed his knowledge gained through years of gaming by hitting Groose with a Last continue for the final pinfall.
This victory would not go unnoticed by management, as the very next show would see Arino put into the main event of the night: A singles match against Knuckles the Echidna for the #1 Contendership for Dan Hibiki's Casual Championship. Both men gave it their all, putting on one of the best matches of both their careers, but in the end Arino was able to use his mastery of Sonic games to trap Knuckles in a pattern of failed glides and capitalize with a Catch Last Continue to secure the victory and the contendership. Finally, after 10 seasons, Arino had earned his first opportunity at singles gold. Would he do former AD James proud and win it all? Or is Arino just not that good at Street Fighter?
After humbly declaring victory over the Master of the Saikyo Style technique on March 31st, the two threw everything they had at each other, exchanging Last Continue's and Pratitude Adjustment's aplenty, and neither men were going down without a fight. But in the end, it would be a second round of the Chief's patented Kacho Kicks to secure a hard-earned Casual Championship, and he didn't even need to use his trusty Yoga Fire to do so!
Five Forty: Arino and RumblesEdit
Arino has become well known for his late entries in Royal Rumbles. Since December 2012, Arino has been one of the last two people to enter every Rumble except for five, three of which where he didn't appear at all. Having a late entry is a huge advantage in rumbles, which is why VGCW claims to determine the order of entry randomly. This process is done behind closed doors, however, so if one wanted to give someone an extra push towards the #1 contender spot, they could set them up as #40 and nobody would know.
- 2012-11-22 - Entered at #27, his debut
- 2012-11-28 - Entered at #12, Eliminated by Zangief
- 2012-12-09 - Entered at #40, Eliminated by Kratos
- 2012-12-14 - Entered at #40, Eliminated by Donkey Kong
- 2012-12-23 - Entered at #39, Eliminated by Raphael
- 2013-01-01 - Entered at #39, Eliminated by Bowser
- 2013-01-16 - No Entry
- 2013-01-22 - Entered at #40, Eliminated by Locke Cole
- 2013-02-28 - Entered at #40, Eliminated by Mario
- 2013-04-17 - Entered at #30 (in a 30-Man Rumble), Eliminated by Barret Wallace
- 2013-08-23 - No Entry
- 2013-11-26 - Entered at #16, Eliminated by Wario
- 2014-03-25 - Entered at #32, Eliminated by Bowser
- 2014-07-01 - Entered at #23, Eliminated by The Saiyans
- 2014-09-16 - No Entry
- 2014-12-23 - Entered at #17, Eliminated by Knuckles the Echidna
- 2015-09-08 - Entered at #40, Eliminated by Dracula
With five entries at #40 and two more at #39, Arino's luck in Rumbles would make even Bowser jealous. For many his luck seems too good to be true, especially after he made his five #40 entry on September 8's Rumble. No other wrestler, even the Koopa King, has been anywhere near that consistent with their entry numbers.Ironically, Arino hasn't won a single Rumble to date. Indeed, while The Kacho may have unbelievable luck with entry numbers, he doesn't seem to have any luck at all when it comes to actually winning them. He has been runner-up three time, losing out to Kratos, Raphael and most recently Dracula. Coincidentally, Arino would've prevented two of the most hated champions in history had he won then. Even when he only had to finish as the runner-up to earn a Casual Championship shot, he finished third after being dispatched by Mario. Will this man ever stop messing up so much at the end?
