Masahiro Sakurai

Masahiro Sakurai is a japanese game programmer, he's more famous for creating the Nintendo franchises of Kirby and Super Smash Bros., as well as directing Kid Icarus: Uprising.

In the Smash Bros. community, Sakurai is kind of a polarized topic. On one hand, some people praise him due to the work he puts on the franchise, earning the nickname Daddy Sakurai (popularized by Youtube user Etika) and Macaroni Samurai, making parodies where he's compared to the christian God; on the other some of his decisions have earned doubt about him on other people, particularly a part of the competitive community as he has said to not be a fan of the playstyle and supporters of certain characters (specially Ridley and Steve from Minecraft).

He has also become the source of many memes.
