Tahattus is best known for creating a series of Mugen 1.1 16:9 HD stages in the 1280x720p localcoord widescreen resolution, which were showcased and released on the Mugen Fighters Guild Mugen forum between 2019 -2020.
Although his Mugen content contribution under the Tahattus Moniker/known activity was not really apparent until around the 2019 period, there are 2 existing theories on when he first became active in the mugen scene.
The first being that he has been active since around 2013 when he first created his youtube channel, the second being as early as 2001.
Despite only gaining reputation via his stage releases on mainstream Mugen forums such as Mugen Fighters Guild and warehousing sites like Mugenarchive between 2019-2020, Evidence indicating his earliest activity within the Mugen community under his real name Luis Gustavo, can be found via a small Blog Post about the MUGEN Engine on the famous Brazilian videogame website, theenemy.com.br

Tahattus's stage creation methods and body of work is not completely without flaw, and some of his work has been met with criticism.
One common criticism regarding his work was that his stages were largely mix-media clashy; using 2d digital artwork sprite images together with photorealistic resources in an unnatural way.
The best example of this can be seen in the his Sea Battle day stage where the photorealistic rock renders and the ocean animation clash heavily.
Other things are more minor like vegetation and object placement. Nonetheless his stages still possess a level of technicality, integrity and depth and ample usage of the Mugen 1.1 engines capabilities.
so to some, his entry in the forbes list may be controversial due to some of the mentioned issues, however all of this can be unarguably redeemed via his critically acclaimed Magnum Opus stage, West City.
Self admittedly he even stated himself: "My favorite, spent too much time on this one."
The stage demonstrates a high level of mastery of both Mugen 1.1 coding, advanced parameter usage, mathematical understanding, and graphic design skill.
