The Earth Defense Force Wiki
Somarinoa 2011 1.jpg

Somarinoa is the current leader of the Earth Defense Force Wiki, and is the founder of Creativity Wiki, being a firm believer in imagination; as well as the founder of Extraterrestrial Fanon Wiki as a sister site to ASW; and All Species Wiki. He is also known as ~gokou-sama on deviantART, where he is decently-known for his Ultimate Showdown game project. He is the bureaucrat of Alien Species Wiki after having brought it back single-handedly from death in 2006 until people took notice and turned it into a thriving wikia as well as on The Earth Defense Force Wiki and Super DBZ Fanon, and serves as an administrator on Cryptid Wiki, Egyptian Fanon, Mega Man Fanon, Ultimate Showdown (a fan-created wiki intended for a trio of his games, though not for everything he has created) and Ultra Dragon Ball. He is also a moderator on Sagan 4, a chat moderator & rollback on Bulletstorm Wiki, a rollback on Supreme Dragon Ball Wiki and Might & Magic Wiki, was the main content contributor to SporeWiki and significantly helped out Conker Wiki and Zim Wiki in the past. Beyond this, he notably helped out the wikis for Of Orcs and Men, Primal Carnage and Starbound before their games were released.

He is also a bit of a (benevolent) grammar Nazi.

Somarinoa became a huge fan of the EDF series with 2017's release, and owns 2017, IA, 2025, The Shadow of New Despair, and Invaders From Planet Space; he has also played and beat Global Defence Force with a friend on their regionless system a number of years back. He is known to periodically draw stylized EDF fan art on his deviantART account, which can all be seen below as well.
