"My name is Reggie, I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games."
Reggie Fils-Aime is the president of Nintendo of America. He has created many famous memes used on the Internet, especially on Miiverse. One of the most recognizable memes of his is the quote "My body is ready".
Reggie was born in New York City in 1961. After receiving his degree from Cornell University in 1979, he took a position with Proctor & Gamble and from there he became the Senior Director of National Marketing at Pizza Hut. He worked at many places after that, including Guinness, Derby Cycle, Raleigh U.K., Panda Management Co, and VH1.
In 2003 he became the Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nintendo of America, and in 2006 became their vice president.
Reggie appeared in many Nintendo related videos and conventions, such as E3. He appeared in the Nintendo Digital Event and "kicked Iwata's ass". Like Satoru Iwata, Sakurai, and many other Nintendo staff members, he has a Miiverse account (although he rarely uses it). He is a verified user and has been followed on Miiverse by a very large number of users.One of the things that Reggie is best noted for across the internet (on Miiverse especially) is his quote "my body is ready". This occured in E3 2007 during the announcement of Wii Fit. He acknowledged this famous meme during the E3 2012 presentation of the Wii U and Wii Fit U. Another thing he is well known for is the 'Filsa-mech', which was a fictional character created as promotion for E3 2014's Nintendo Tree house stream. In this skit, a mechanical version of Reggie is piloted by two Nintendo fans who wish to see inside information on E3 2014's Nintendo games.
As stated above, Reggie is known for the many memes that he's created, such as:
- "My body is ready"
- "I feel just like a purple Pikmin"
- Reggie Fils-A-Mech
- "I'm about kicking ass and takin' names"
- Come on Reggie, give us MOTHER 3!
- Reggie has stated his favorite game is The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
- Reggie once fought Hungrybox in an E3 2015 Smash Tournament. Although Reggie had less skill in Super Smash Bros. than Hbox, Reggie roasted Hbox by saying, "I spend 16 hours a day running a company, you spend 16 hours a day playing Smash Bros.!"
- Reggie's Mii Fighter was featured in Nintendo's 2014 E3 presentation as a Super Smash Bros. fighter reveal.
