I've had four cars. A Jetta III, a Sentra XE, a Skyline R32, and a Skyline R33. Needless to say I'm not over-burdoned with imagination...

My username has 2 parts that each have their own explanation.

The "MD5" part is a shortening of one of my old standby usernames: MegaDan5, while the "Ray01" part refers to my favorite entity from the game Custom Robo: the Ray 01 Robo.

by IM NOT A DUCK
I was on MW3 with my friends making duck noises with my friends when this one 8 year old sounding child said "atokz (my Xbox username) is a duck" and as loudly and violently as possible i shouted at him "IM NOT A DUCK" and the kid didn't talk for the rest of the round. From then on it was a inside joke between me and my friends.

Excerpted from my introduction post:

I patterned the name after the constellation Monocerotis, which in Greek means Unicorn. I chose this name as my mother likes unicorns, coincidentally Beta Monocerotis is a triple star star system. I used this to represent my brothers and myself, as the system is fixed and all three stars move together. As a side note, V838 Monocerotis is actually a variable red supergiant star, which is one of the main stars that had an outburst recently, which my mother says "that's the mother star of the children stars around it", so I went along with it.

Monoceros is also a Squadron name in my story AirBuster: Trouble Specialty Raid Unit 2

Finally i'll tell my history...
All began in 2005, when i was 14 years old, in a city called São Paulo(which is the largest city of Brazil), my given name is Andrey, and my mom is Russian(she was born in Novosibirsky), and since i was a child, i had some accent, not to much, but i had, so people nicknamed me as "Russo", which in portuguese(the official language of Brazil) means "Russian Boy"(the female form of this word is "Russa").
And was in 2005 that three bands "joined" as a family, due the lyrics, someone suggested "Tragik", so the bands names remained the same, the only thing we've done was to include in our "war names" the "family name" of Tragik. My band was called "Die Einführung", but we were so awful that we never made a show outside our garages...
Ohhhh sweet memories!

I chose this screen name after I began dominating PvP matches back in the legacy Ace Combat games. If you want to know how that worked, just ask.

The Gradius Series on NES, SNES, and more recently PSP. Gradius III was one of the first tastes of SNES I had when I was 5 years old. Vic Viper is the main ship you go into combat with.
However, I'm stubborn and insist that it better suits the name of a pilot ;)

You forget that the SNES version of From Legend to Myth: Gradius III's version is called Vic Viper M.A.X. (just M.A.X. in non Japanese versions). Also some speculate that the ship is sentient and has no pilot (in some games).

I Really like Ace Combat, i've started th series playing Ace Combat 2. Actually, in Ace Combat 2, there's na rank pattern that you receive after some missions you complete, and i've stepped at colonel (first, my nick also was Ace Combat Major). then, this nick was born: Ace Combat Colonel.

BUT as you can see, i'm changing my nick to HypperGryffus, actually, i took it from my imagination :P

Time to bring this back...

I don't really recall the origin of my name here on HQ.
But I do remember my PSN/YS name (HawkbitAlpha) was dedicated to an old Battlefield 2 player named Hawkbit.

I thought it was because you was a boat boss.

Mine:
Vandal is a callsign used by the BEST squadron within the the RAF 617 Sqn.

I used to be known as Rawfodog back on YSP, before changing to Vandal (Also at YSP). If you never worked it out it, God of war backwards. But I changed it to an easier to pronounce username which I've enjoyed ever since and not prefer over my old username (JR likes my own username more). People kept calling me Raw-for-dog on TS and it annoyed me.

The first time I went on eric's server, my name was "Viper", and viper1 was online, so I went offline and changed my name to Venom so I wouldn't be copying. :lol: :lol: :lol:

After looking desperately for a game that wasn't too arcade-y or too realistic (FSX demo turned into a slideshow). I was pretty new to flying airliners.... So I picked Greenhorn.

Originally I was going to play as Malnu123, but I didn't like having numbers in my username. Plus I used that for Club Penguin, didn't want to use that... My DeviantArt account is still Malnu123 though.
