Autists are a suspicious bunch, so it is unsurprising that 4chan Cup lore has numerous curses established through its history. Over the years, some have been bested, but their long-nailed fingers still extend into the black heart of pez to rig games and fulfill their sick prophecies.

The team whose player earns The Golden Boot for an Elite Cup will never win the cup itself. This curse has been broken by Cunt Destroyer in Summer 2013, Talentless Hack in Summer 2014, Doomrider in Winter 2015, >rape in Summer 2016, and Scooby in Winter 2017.
