Johan "NaNiwa" Lucchesi is a Swedish player who plays Protoss in Starcraft II and Undead in Warcraft III. He is widely known for his controversial behavior in the e-Sports scene.

NaNiwa faced a lot of personal problems during his Warcraft III career, which include strong opposition from his father who wanted him to focus on his studies, and a lack of composure after losing a match; particularly ones that he was confident going into. Because of this, NaNiwa gained a reputation of bad manners and unprofessional conduct and was frequently forced to switch teams. These problems transitioned into his Starcraft II career.

On October 27, 2010, ESL announced NaNiwa was no longer part of the ESL Pro Series Germany Season 17 due to acquiring too many penalty points. According to the official statement, NaNiwa was missing professionalism as he showed up late to ESL TV Matches and missed the time to upload replays. In accordance with the ESL Pro Series rules, NaNiwa was disqualified from Season 17 and banned from participating in Season 18. As a direct result of this, MYM released NaNiwa from their Starcraft II roster.

Due to NaNiwa's highly controversial decision to Probe rush NesTea in their Blizzard Cup match on December 12th 2011, GOMTV officially revoked Naniwa's Code S spot as punishment for his unprofessional behavior.

Although a controversial player, NaNiwa has established himself as one of the strongest players outside of Korea. He shows very good and consistent results in tournaments, winning two Major League Gaming titles in 2011, and placing 2nd in TSL 3, Homestory Cup II & III, and MLG Providence 2011. He also obtained Top 8 placements in two consecutive seasons of GSL Code S in 2012.
