* OneSteveLimit: Averted with his real name. There are at least four people called Tom in the Yogscast, which is one reason why he goes by Sparkles*.

* OneSteveLimit: Averted with his real name. There are At the time he was working for the Yogscast, there were at least four ''four'' people called Tom in the Yogscast, Tom, which is one reason why he goes by Sparkles*.



* PoorCommunicationKills: When playing Survival Games with LetsPlay/{{Turpster}}, the duo failed to properly discuss a strategy and things only got worse from there.

* ButtMonkey: Parv rarely gets a break from either the band or the Yogscast. The "RIP Parv" meme is the prime example. Kogie ''explicitly'' calls him a ButtMonkey at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* SirSwearsALot: Not so much during the music, where he's dropped the odd PrecisionFStrike at most, but he tends to swear a fair amount during streams and gigs, as well as on Twitter.

* GenreSavvy: In spite of his apparently stupid persona, Parv gets this from time to time.
** Fully aware that some prospective Twitch users would look at his wiki space, he made an FAQ section on his article on the Yogscast wiki, so as to save him having to spam it elsewhere.
** During the game of ''Werewolves'' they played to say farewell to Strippin, he asked a defender to defend him as he knew that everyone would try to kill him first, after everyone kept going for him. [[spoiler:Didn't happen]].



* TheyKilledKenny: During the ''Werewolves'' game, Parv kept getting killed first, leading to his being GenreSavvy later.

* AlcoholInducedIdiocy: In the 2012 Christmas livestreams, he stumbled into the room where Simon and Lewis were streaming late into the morning, drunkenly singing along to songs with lyrics that didn't exist, then falling over twice when Duncan and Parv convinced him to leave. To make matters even funnier, he disrupted Hannah's efforts to clear them out and kept telling the others to shut up.

** Don't ask him to play Wonderwall by Music/{{Oasis}}. He's only done so twice for charity; the first time was when he was singing with Martyn and Strippin and they needed to wrap up their livestream (so he decided to do it for his two friends) and the second was to end the Dream Team 2013 livestream, which ended chaotically.

* TheChewToy: In the sketches, most of the bad stuff happens to him. In "Riddles", he has to chug ten litres of water for a bet that didn't really exist and then [[spoiler:pees himself because Parv stops him going to the bathroom]]. In "Cereal", he and Leo can't eat breakfast because Kogie is too stupid to simply wash some bowls. In "Monopoly", he spends all his Monopoly money on massages, then in TheStinger [[spoiler:Trott picks him up]].

* OnlySaneMan: When the Yogscast 2012 and 2013 livestreams came around, Sparkles had the job of holding everything together.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Sparkles* typically keeps his somewhat snarky persona up when offscreen, even while normally dishing out compliments.
