|Not to be confused with X or Nintendofan996.|
|This is a featured article!
That means it's considered to be one of the best articles the SuperMarioGlitchy4 Wiki has to offer.
Aaron Rogers (also known as X, Armonzii, Nintendofan997, Xboxfan997, Xboxfan, or just X), is a YouTuber, artist, graphic designer, animator, writer, and video editor. He worked as a writer in the SMG4 series before stepping down to a guest writer.
He is SMG4 and FightingMario54321's best friend. He has his own YouTube and Twitch channel named Armonzii. He used to be one of the most common characters, but now only makes minor appearances in SMG4's videos. He once had an evil doppelganger called Nintendofan998, except he's called Xboxfan996 or Nintendofan996 in SMG4's videos, for some reason.
X also came up with the original idea for the War of the Fat Italians series, and has hosted it almost every year, except for special arc occasions (When he was a T-Pose Zombie in The Waluigi Arc and was vaguely absent in The YouTube Arc).
In mid-2021, he became employed at Glitch Productions as the second American staff writer after Robyn Barry-Cotter, when Kevin Lerdwichagul approached him directly asking if he wanted to write for the series. His first episode writing was SMG4: SMG4 Goes Insane. He later becomes the third chief writer of SMG4, and the first non-Australian chief writer of the series, succeeding Kevin Lerdwichagul.
However, about 2 months after his hiring, he decided to leave Glitch Productions, likely due to the job of being a full-time writer being a hefty workload to do weekly for him. Although despite this, he is allowed to have a more "commission-based" role now where he might guest-write once in a while to help out.   
In late-2021, he rejoined as one of the editors of SMG4's videos as of SMG4: THE 5,000,000 SUB SPECIAL.
X's color code looks similar to MarioGame2222's, due to the colors used for the cap, arms, and shirt, and for the overalls:
- Green overalls.
- Blue sky cap, arms, and shirt,
- Black gloves,
- Brown shoes (like Mario, Luigi, and a lot of other guys).
- Tanned face (slightly darker than regular, as you can see in the picture at the top right corner of this article).
- Brown hair (like Mario, Luigi, and many other guys).
His eyes sometimes appear green instead of blue (the regular color).
Unlike the rest of the characters, X appears to be more calm and compassionate than the rest. While he does show discomfort towards the shenanigans around him (even towards his closest friends), he rarely ever loses his cool. A notable exception is War Of The Fat Italians 2019, where he finally gets fed up with Mario and SMG4 fighting each other and not putting aside their differences.
That said, there are moments when X himself becomes intolerable to others. In a skit from SSENMODNAR DELUXE - 1 MILLION SUB SPECIAL, he tries to buy clothes from the soup store, prompting FM to ask why the hell he was doing that. SMG4 Movie: 10 Year Anniversary Special recreates that skit and shows that X came back to FM with cans of soup, prompting FM to throw a can at X's head for his idiocy. Then there's that time in SMG4: Studying for Exams...But you're friends with Mario when he teamed up with Baldi for the sake of an algebra pun (because his nickname is "X") pretending to be held hostage, resulting in Meggy exploding with anger and throwing him, Baldi, and Mario out.
Seaside Stupidity Part 1 shows him to be rather cowardly, as he decides that it's every man for themselves after a sea monster ends up causing the cruise ship he was riding on (along with many other passengers) to sink. He later attempts to persuade Admiral S. Swipe to kill Mario instead of him, only for Mario to retaliate by saying that he should kill X instead for being a side character.
X seems to have a future sight ability which he uses unwillingly to detect danger/dark omens. How he obtained this power is unknown. When he uses this power, he seems to experience a lot of pain.
It's implied in the video SMG4: The Crazy Fighters that he also has the power to shoot lasers.
He carried guns with him during early videos as he came from the zombie era. (Mario stole one prior to the events of SMG4: Crystal Funhouse).
X has only one counterpart in bloopers: Nintendofan998 (or Xboxfan998), his evil doppelganger, who is called "Xboxfan996" in SMG4's videos for an unknown reason.
- He doesn't often make videos now, but he occasionally streams on his Twitch.
- As of SMG4: SMG4 Goes Insane, however, he now writes the episodes for SMG4.
- He was formerly known as Xboxfan997 before changing his username to NintendoFan997, and then to Armonzii. Due to his popularity as an SMG4 character, however, he is informally known as "X", despite his current username not having any "X's".
- Because of this, his Twitter profile's display name is also "X".
- He states in Super Mario 64 Bloopers: Crystal Funhouse, that AustinDawgyDawg and GageDawg are better fighters than FightingMario54321. However, this is just his opinion, so it may not be true.
- In the video Two Great Friends!, he has two "roommates" (or "housemates" as he said) staying at his house: Ben, a mentally unstable yellow Toad wearing sunglasses, and Princess Daisy.
- In the episode Cooking with Bowser & Mario 2!, he sells burgers.
- In 2014, he only appeared in cameos for a while, but returned as a main character in the video War of the Fat Italians 2014.
- Xboxfan997 acts as the host in the video "War of the Fat Italians 2013", though he refers to himself as "XboxFanGuy".
- It is implied he uses drugs, as in the video War of the Fat Italians 2013 when Mario and SMG4 go to him to find out who wins, he says "The drugs are over there! Don't hurt me!", implying he is a drug-user.
- This is also implied in The Imposter, as SMG4 states he is on crack again when the imposter (X) is chasing him.
- He has over 13,000 subscribers.
- He and SMG4 were the only non-fictional YouTubers to be infected by the T-Pose Shroom.
- While Nintendofan997 is called "X", he is not to be confused with X, a villain who stole Mario's body in the episode "Enter X".
- He has appeared in every War of the Fat Italians as the judge, except in the 2018 edition, where he is T-Posed and Waluigi takes over the judge role instead, and in the 2020 edition, where he was vaguely absent and the spirit of the YouTube Remote hosted instead.
- While he does not host War of the Fat Italians 2021, he does make a brief, non-speaking appearance in one of the challenges, alongside FM.
- His favorite SMG4 video as of 12th May 2020 is SMG4: Mario waits for pizza.
- In the Trailer of War Of The Fat Italians 2020 - Official Trailer he seems to be deleted, but these events don't seem to actually take place in The YouTube Arc.
- In a link from one of his personal videos, it was revealed that X got to design an official Banjo-Kazooie shirt, as shown here. It was revealed on his Design by Humans profile that his real name is Aaron Rogers.
- He had almost no appearances in 2020.
- X was one of the many fans that submitted fanart during Meggy's Debut Stream! 🔴. His fanart can be seen at 41:02 in the video, where he posted it via Twitter.
- According to himself, one of his favorite characters in the SMG4 series is Bob Bobowski.
- During X's time when writing SMG4 episodes, he actually was writing them remote and to meet Luke Lerdwichagul in person.
