- Numchuck Skillz (3): In the film Napoleon Dynamite, the main character boasts about his "skills" with "numchucks".
- Über Micro Skillz (5): The German word/prefix "über" is commonly used among online gamers to describe something or someone that is superior, either in quality or in skill. "Micromanagement" is the performance of many small tasks in a video game in a short time; micromanagement in Guild Wars usually refers to the manual control of heroes. "Über micro skillz" would describe a gamer who is very good at micromanagement.
- Gosu Skillz (6): Gosu is a Korean word that means, loosely, "the upper hand," and is used to describe a person with great skill in martial arts, Go, and, more recently, video games. Korea's strong influence in online gaming has led to the term's adoption by gamers in western countries.
- 1337 Skills (7): "1337" is the leetspeak rendering of "elite."
- iddqd Skillz (8): "iddqd" is a cheat code that enables "god" mode in the early first-person shooter DOOM.
- T3h Haxz0rz Skillz (9): This is also leetspeak, meaning "(the) hacker's skills."
- Pure Pwnage Skillz (10): Pure Pwnage is an online mockumentary series about a supposed "pro gamer." The term "über-micro" (see rank 5) originates from episode 2 of this series.
- These Skillz Go To (11): In the heavy metal mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, the band has a special amplifier whose volume dials all have 11 as the highest setting (standard amplifiers only go to 10). When asked why they didn't just make the 10 setting louder, the lead guitarist simply replies, "But these go to 11."
- Real Ultimate Power Skillz (12) is a reference to the site Real Ultimate Power, which is a joke site about how awesome ninjas are.
- The max rank can be achieved with exactly 9,000 wins in Dwayna Vs Grenth (arena), a reference to the "Over 9000!" meme inspired by Dragonball Z.
