Community Hub

This week’s Community Hub is JAM-PACKED! Our Online Hideout has been bursting lately with involvement opportunities, upcoming events, and genius brawler content. We’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s dive right in! 


Brawler and artist Gaith is at it again with another high-flying piece! “0 Gravity, 0 Worries” is Gaith’s ode to Knockout City’s very own Man in the Moon. Here’s what Gaith had to say about making this gorgeous gif . . .

“I have [music] playlists for when I draw and this one was inspired by the one for the Moon Man Crew, cuz our Crew lore revolves around our brawlers and the DJ, so we have songs on it specifically for DJ like; Space Oddity, Rocketman, and Starman.”

A marvelous marsupial mask melts the mind in this detailed, down-under drawing by artist pikss_pikki! “KOALA_GIRL” is a conceptual piece based on the styles of Knockout City brawlers. I am in AWE of this design. Well done, pikss_pikki! (psst…if you’re loving the fanart portion of Community Hub, join the conversation and visit the fanart channel in Knockout City’s official Discord server!)

It wouldn’t be “Knockout City, baby!” without a little levity! Enter local comedian Helperb0t with their latest creation: “Helperb0t's Oops All Cage Balls: Part of a Brawlenced Breakfast!” About their humorous (delicious?) piece, Helperb0t says:

“How does the Cage Ball Cult start their day? By dunking some Cage Balls (in milk of course)!”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to start my mornings off right with a heaping helping of Helperb0t’s!

DJ’s Video Pick of the Week

And now, a word from our DJ:

Brawler Ari brings the house down in this rock-in-roll clip from the Ol’ Clock App! The odds were against Ari (known around the cyber-sphere as the Online Fairy), but with a little quick thinkin’ and a whole lotta elbow grease, they dipped, dodged and dashed their way to a grand slam! Well done, Ari. This next song goes out to you!

The Grand Finale
