―MissingNo.'s description on the MOJO!!
MissingNo. was revealed in "SiIvaGunner: King for Another Day Tournament Direct 9.21.2019". Its design is a fusion of its various forms. Its rips will feature glitches, corruptions, exploits and games that are known for them, unused content, music associated with gaming creepypasta, and Glitch Hop and IDM music.
In Round 1, MissingNo. faced DJ Professor K and lost. In the Loser's Bracket, MissingNo. beat HOBaRT and moved up to face Mr. Krabs, who they subsequently beat. It then went head-to-head with Donkey Kong, who it also beat, and the following round it beat Dr. Piccolo, and then beating Rhythm Masters in the round next. MissingNo. then beat Daft Punk ft. Pharrell, moving up to the Final 4. Finally, it faced Mariya Takeuchi in the Loser's Finals, where it was defeated. Due to being part of the Final 4, however, it will still receive an award in the form of a collaborative project. It is unknown what it will be.
