Super-Nimble Mega Hamster got its name because Jerome McHale shouted it repeatedly until everyone agreed.

What.

Either that, or it's just a trading card game and we don't memorize random individual players from around the world.
I honestly couldn't even name a single winner of a World Championship ever, and I've been playing since shortly before joining this website.
Heck, if it wasn't written on every card, I probably wouldn't know Kazuki Takahashi's name.

Sometimes a game is just a game.

jerome mchale has been prominent in the ygo scene for well over a decade.


-he used to write for metagame (he was also incredibly biased against certain teams like cardmasters)
-worked for ude (then got fired)
-hired by konami afterwards (because he hated ude just as much as konami did)
-helped create certain cards (super nimble mega hamster, photon sabre tiger, etc..)

So he's a journalist that works for Konami.
Do you know the name of the janitors that work at Konami too?
So he partially helped create a card and sat there like a numbskull yelling a silly name until everyone else
was so tired of listening to him they agreed just so he'd shut up (which is what I got from the story).

His name is random trivia at best.
He's not the creator.
He's not the boss.
He's not a voice actor for the anime.
He's not even the World Champion.
He's a middle level employee at the American branch of a massive global company.
That's all.

I don't think anyone should be expected to know who Jerome McHale is, but if you don't know then google is your friend :)

Yeah, I can Google him, just saying it's silly to think everyone should automatically know all these Konami people.

Frankly, without this topic, I would have forgotten this was even a card, nevermind one of obviously many people picking card names. :P
lol, I ain't never used any hamsters before. :D

Ehh I'll agree with you. I probably would be more involved in the game if there was a local community for it down here. Alas there is not.
