Rocket League developers have never shied away from offering their player base as many options as they can come up with for you to express yourself on the pitch.
We’ve seen everything from Alpha rewards worth thousands-of-dollars to Batman v. Superman inspired bodies, decals and goodies.
But one of the less known but widely recognizable customization options was right under our noses this whole time -- and by “our noses”, I mean our in-game account name.
Those untradeable, hard-earned titles that appear below our Rocket League display name when we score or appear on the scoreboard.
You may have disabled them because of aesthetic or because it looks cleaner without it. But let me tell you, if you had any of the following player titles, you would never disable again in your life.
These are a combination of once-in-a-lifetime and still-obtainable-but-hard-af, so without further ado, here are the 10 rarest, most unique player titles in Rocket League history.
Rarest Rocket League player titles
10. Rocket Demigod
Let’s start with an easy one. Rocket Demigod is a player title awarded to anyone who has reached XP Level 1000 in-game. Player titles are awarded every 20 levels until level 100 then every 100 levels until reaching level 1000.
While there is no finite number of Rocket Demigod’s going around, if you ever stumble upon one of them just keep in mind it takes 19,790,000 XP points to unlock it.
That is a lot of goals, saves, wins, weekly and seasonal challenges. Put some "respeck" on their name.
9. Supersonic Legend
This one might throw some people off their rhythm. You see, before the free-to-play update and the introduction of a rank higher than what we knew was the ceiling until then, Supersonic Legend was only a player title awarded after getting to XP Level 700.
XP Level 700 is achieved by getting 13,790,000 XP points and after Patch v1.81, the Supersonic Legend title was replaced with the current Level 700 reward, Legendary Nemesis.

Honestly, it was kind of sad seeing this title go away. I remember friends and teammates losing this player title as they had it equipped and they could no longer brag “being an SSL” while stuck in platinum. It is what it is, I guess.
8. EST. 2015
From the long list of player titles, we are dipping our toes in “never obtainable again” waters. You only go free-to-play once and unless they decide to go pay-u-to-play to re-release these player titles, you are stuck with your starting year until the end of time.
The most obscure of them all, of course, is EST. 2015 -- the year Rocket League, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars’ sequel released.
Honestly, these are some of my favourite player titles -- EST. 2015 or EST. 2020, because now I can judge your ability by your rotations, whiffs and dribbles in comparison to how long you have been playing. You dug your own grave, plats.
7. Rockets Engaged
These player title has been given out by Psyonix personally to couples that met through Rocket League and later got married. The title has a Light Green glow to it, so it’ll be pretty easy to recognize as soon as you see it hit your screen.
There are currently 10 users meaning five total couples that have this player title: Manicmonkey5 & onomatopoeia1337, Hevyk3vy & neatoqueenrl, ChisTheBlond & Pinapul, Rando & Fruitloop, and LemonGerth & GracefulGazelle.
I am not one to brag therefore I won’t say much about my rank, but if I can boast about anything is that I played against one of the Rockets Engaged player title holders.
6. The Pigeon Man
Now, this might seem silly but hear me out. The title is The Pigeon Man and it glows Forest Green.
This player title was given out to player Johnz12321 for… *checks notes* collecting 1,000 Pigeon toppers in-game.
I wish I could give you more context, except that -- wait, yes I can.
Johnz12321’s Twitter reads “The guys with The Pigeon Man Title” and it still has 2016-2017 tweets of his journey to collect 1K Pigeon toppers.
He completed the feat on the 23rd February and he was instantly contacted via Reddit by Devin, the most public-facing Psyonix developer, who asked John to check his in-game titles next time he opens Rocket League.
Huge disclaimer for collectors, Psyonix Devin commented under his initial contact with Johnz12321 the following “This a one-time event. We aren't giving custom titles to anyone else who collects 500, 1000, 10000, etc. of anything.” You’ve been warned.
5. Season (X) Grand Champion
This one still hurts my heart. One of my own personal drives in my Rocket League grind was always to get my digital wheels on the Season (X) Grand Champion player titles.
These titles have a golden glow and it drew me like Icarus to the sun.
With the addition of a new highest rank, Supersonic Legend in white, Grand Champion had to be redesigned to crimson and keep the purple in Champion ranks.
While the golden glow of Season (X) Grand Champion titles was never explained or related to the design, the look was always appealing to the community and nobody seemed to question it.
I know the titanium white SSL and crimson GC titles will grow onto the community eventually, but the golden glow was the closest thing we had to professional titles -- more on that next.
4. Wet Art Man
Sh*tty Watercolour not only has a flag and a banner, but also a player title in-game exclusive to him.
The player title Wet Art Man was awarded to Hector Richard Janse van Rensburg AKA Sh*tty Watercolour after his flag and banner were introduced back in 2018. This will not be the only time the Wet Art Man played a hand in the Rocket League world.
He also designed for after Remco "remkoe" den Boer, Nicolai "Maestro" Bang and Marius "gReazymeister" Ranheim formed We Dem Girlz.
Widely popular throughout Reddit, 9gag and Twitter, Sh*tty Watercolour will always live in Rocket League lore one way or another.
3. Supersonic Legend (Season Reward)
You know the drill. They added a higher rank, Supersonic Legend, yada yada yada… but did you know the player base is far from reaching the rank, let alone obtain the season reward player title?
The rank distribution for last year’s Season 1 was released earlier this month and it revealed that across all seven rankable playlists (duel, 2v2, 3v3, Rumble, Dropshot, Hoops and Snow Day) only 0.0143% of the total player base is a Supersonic Legend.
In average, there are around 3 million players online every day, peaking around 1.5 million concurrent players. From those numbers, we can concur that every day there are less than 500 Supersonic Legends throughout the day still active or a little more than 200 Supersonic Legends at any given time.
That’s in total. The skill ceiling might’ve not been hit yet in Rocket League, but the bar has been set real high by the community and for good reason.
This is my second and last brag of the piece -- I promise, I swear. The Developer tag is one of the most sought after in the player title. Running into one in the wild is like going up to God and challenging them to a world-making battle.
How could you defeat a creator in their own creation? Well, I’ve done it -- and it feels pretty darn good.
I won’t give out their name because I have standards, but I can let you know that if you run into the player title with the Cyan glow, go all try-hard and sweaty on them because your time has come.
No need to take a picture, save the replay or repost it on social media but maybe you can write an article and tell the world you are now a Rocket Demigod by default. Hey, I don’t make the rules.
1. 4-Time World Champion
This one was pretty easy to pick. This title belongs exclusively to the four-time, four-time, four-time, four-time World Champion Pierre “Turbopolsa” Silfver currently in Team Envy’s roster.
Turbopolsa has won it all on four different occasions and technically under four different orgs. Season 3 with Northern Gaming, Season 4 with Gale Force, Season 5 with Dignitas and Season 8 with NRG.
While Turbo is the undisputed GOAT at the moment, ex-teammates Alexandre "Kaydop" Courant and Jos "ViolentPanda" van Meurs have the “3-Time World Champion” and “2-Time World Champion” respectively.

This has to be by far the most difficult player title to achieve in Rocket League. Not only because talent and opportunity like that is hard to come by, but Turbo alongside Team Envy is cruising through the RLCS X North American Regionals winning three of them in a row.
If this repeats in the Winter Major and Rocket League World Championship due around May 2021, Turbopolsa could push his GOAT credentials even further.
And there you have it -- Rocket League’s most unique player titles. While some of these are unobtainable forever and ever, I guess your best shot would be to aim to beat or at least play against as many of these as possible. I’m two down, how about you?
