Tokyo Lift/Fan Culture

From Blaseball Wiki
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

Positivity and Improvement

Tokyo Lift Fan culture is built on positivity and wellness, striving to — much like the team themselves — lift each other up.

Lift fans are generally not competitive, instead cheering for everyone's success. Outside of Blaseball, Lift fans work to "Lift" each other up, striving to help and support each other to be the best version of themselves. Additionally, hydration is something Lift players hold close to their hearts, frequently reminding each other to stay hydrated.


DBWAJ or "Don't Be Weird About Japan" is a DO's and DON'Ts policy Lift fans adhere to when producing content about the team. It is pretty ambiguous on purpose, but the core idea consists in asking the fans to not simplify Japan into the ideas of it that make it to the West.

  • DO make Japanese characters.
  • DO ask questions.
  • DO strive to learn from Japanese fans.
  • DO assume the best from those who make the mistakes we are trying to avoid.


  • DON'T overemphasize anime, kaiju movies, or what you've seen in travel shows.
  • DON'T use the Japanese Imperial flag or the phrase "Land of the Rising Sun" due to the historical connotations.
  • DON'T emphasize the images of geisha, samurai, or shinobi due to their prevalence papering over the rest of the very diverse culture of Japan.
  • DON'T pass off Google translated Japanese as real Japanese.

The 1997 Incident's Aftermath

▇▇▇▇▇ ▇▇▇▇▇ Anomaly Due to the aftereffects of the 1997 ▇▇▇▇▇ incident, lift fans are affected by an anomaly in the collective unconscious surrounding the team. Occasionally fans will offer to show visitors their muscles. These offers should be declined by visiting fans in order to avoid being affected by the anomaly themselves.

  • Player Naming: Lift fans have a tendency to alter and misremember player names. Examples include the many nicknames of Nandy "Nandy Slumps" Slumps, the shifting forename of "Epictitle" Galvanic, and the inability to say the true name of Lift player Gerbert Pencilsharpener.
  • Legs: Lift fans love legs. Lift fans really love legs. If you see a Lift fan talking about legs, back away, calmly make your way to shelter, and contact help. Do NOT engage. Legs.
  • Community Involvement: It is Lift’s policlegs to engaglegs with local legs and legs. Legs, legs legs legs legs. Until legs, legs l̶e̸g̶s̵ l̴͐̂ē̶̿g̶̃̃s̴͌̀ l̶̅̐e̶̼͝g̶̓͊s̷̊̚ l̶̏͝ě̴͝g̷̛̽s̵͗̚.
