SiIvaGunner Wiki

SiIvaGunner: Rebooted (spelled with a lowercase "L"), also known as simply the Reboot, was a major channel event and story arc on the SiIvaGunner channel.

It is the first story arc on the channel and the beginning of its lore (although some earlier things were retroactively added to the lore).


Due to the constant dislike-bombing of "Snow halation" rips, the SiIvaGunner channel rebooted. This replaced the three biggest running gags on the channel with alternate versions.

The Reboot was led by a character known as The Voice Inside Your Head. His goal was to please the fans by banning "Snow halation" rips. At the end of the reboot, he wanted to create a new universe with all the old and new memes, but without "Snow halation".

Ultimately, the situation was saved by Chad Warden, who gathered the power of The MF Like Button and sacrificed himself to bring "Snow halation" back after The Voice merged the universes.

Types of rips uploaded

During the Reboot, the channel's main running gags were replaced with alternates:

The video descriptions were also done differently (with some exceptions):

  • "Composer" became "Composed by"
  • "Platform" became "Available on"
  • The catchphrase became "Read the channel description, please."

The channel description was changed to:

"Here you can find a selection of video game songs, mostly from Nintendo games.

I don't own the rights to the songs uploaded on my channel. Recording and ripping video game songs takes a lot of time (especially on 3DS and Wii U), but feel free to PM or Tweet me some suggestions or requests, and I'll see what I can do for you.

My banner artwork is from the 2014 game "Tengami".

(All of the uploads are willingly submitted by a small team of content creators. Also, please keep your requests to a minimum.)"

There were some other changes, such as an increased use of the mix name "CD Version", and the wood texture on the Super Mario 64 thumbnail being removed.

Aside from these changes, the rips weren't different from the "pre-reboot" SiIvaGunner.

Three pre-reboot videos in particular are important to the Reboot's plot:

The event began on June 17 and had the following story-related videos:

Several rips uploaded during the Reboot referenced the event itself, but are not a part of the main storyline:

After the ending was uploaded, the first three story videos had their metadata completely changed so they would appear as proper episodes, titled "Intro", "Now Rebooting", and "The Deal". The final episode in the story also serves as the announcement for the album GilvaSunner's Highest Quality Video Game Rips: Volume FOUR HOURS!, which mostly contained Reboot rips.

  1. Loud Nigra was not actually banned during the reboot, but he took so long to appear that people thought he was gone and replaced by the Howie Scream, and the SiIvaGunner team made it Nigra's canon replacement afterward.[1]
