HyperJacob96 is a Korean 22-year-old rapper, video-editor, digital artist, singer, and voice actor/impressionist. He is the creator of Epic Rap Battles of HyperJacob96 and a nameless Rap Battle series, as well as one of the owners of Epic Rap Battles of Pokemon alongside Mancha. Before joining the Rap Battle Community, Jacob was a regular user on the Epic Rap Battles of History Wiki.
He is also known for doing what he likes to call "Wacky Covers", which are covers of other rap battles, but does completely random voices that have nothing to do with the original characters in said rap battles.
Jacob is also currently a part of the Tokusatsu Community, and is the voice of Kiriya Kujo and Saki Momose in Marcosatsu's Kamen Rider Ex-Abridged, and will be the voice of Heart in ProtoDubs' Kamen Driver, as well as Stinger in Kyu the Dub.
When he isn't doing anything for his own series or helping his friends, he does covers and his own edits of battles. When he isn't doing that, he likes playing around with Photoshop, playing video games, watching videos on YouTube, drawing, etc.
His wiki account is BasaltWolfED145RS.

- The first guest role Jacob was ever given was Herobrine for Justin's series.
- His debut guest appearance, however, was as the Scout in B-Lo's series, due to Justin taking more time than B-Lo to edit his battle.
- The first rap battle he ever helped worked on was Pikachu vs Meowth, which he helped with before he even officially joined the Rap Battle Community.
- His favorite fan-made rap battle series is Epic Rap Battles of Pokemon, possibly liking it more than even ERB itself!

- Jacob is often called "Skully" by Frenzy.
- On July 8 of 2015, Jacob had moved to Chicago, Illinois to study Digital Filmmaking at The Illinois Institute of Art Chicago. However, in Frenzy's "GOODBYE 2015!" livestream (at around 3:09:00), Jacob says that he had decided to quit College, and has since returned home.
- He did not talk about the details about why he made this decision, and has yet to do so, if he ever plans to do so.
- Jacob is the first (and so far only) person ever to use a Kamen Rider in a Rap Battle (as far as he knows) with Natsu Dragneel vs Haruto Souma.
