-->''[[MadLibsCatchPhrase "Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is TotalBiscuit, and I'm here to ask and answer one simple question. WTF is..."]]''

[[TheMeanBrit The Cynical Brit]].

AKA [[Literature/{{Discworld}} TotalBiscuit]]; [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft TotalHalibut;]] [[VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline Dark Halibut]]; [[VideoGame/TheSecretWorld El Poncho Grande]]; [[AwesomeMcCoolName John Bain]].

John Bain, better known by his screen name TotalBiscuit, is a British-born creator of Website/YouTube videos and commentary showcasing his first impressions of whatever game has only just been released. He does fast-paced ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' Multiplayer commentary, first-impression videos of indie games on {{Steam}} and other digital-distribution platforms through a series known as ''WTF is...'', and collaborations with other channels, such as co-op playthroughs of ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2'' with the {{Yogscast}} guys and a ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' series with Jesse Cox of OMFGCata.
As for his ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' involvement, he became a sponsor for Team Dignitas' [=BlinG=], and has founded Team Axiom, which currently has 5 players.

During his time with Wow Radio, TotalBiscuit hosted a few shows - Dungeon Master (a short-lived non-intensive raid guide), Titan, TB's Show About Videogames and EPIC! - but, in the world of podcasts, he is best known for both his "shock-jock"-inspired persona and ''Blue Plz'', a ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' weekly podcast, ''Cataclysm'' expansion beta (and afterward, published content) playthroughs with commentary, and daily updates of "[=WoW=] news and content" through his ''Azeroth Daily'' videos. He discontinued his regular ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' videos as of May 2011 and, although he continued it for a few weeks afterwards, has confirmed that ''Blue Plz'' is "done for good" as well. He has also done 27 videos of an ambitious LetsPlay for ''ShiningForceIII'' (which he has unfortunately been forced to take down due to copyright claims by Sega Japan), and had been embarking on a playthrough of ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'' after a handful of beta content videos were well-received on his channel.

As a bit of Trivia, TotalBiscuit has been said by the {{Yogscast}} to own ''every'' game on {{Steam}}, despite this not actually being true, his {{Steam}} account is [[http://www.steamcalculator.com/id/TotalBiscuit worth quite a bit]] Regardless of the hyperbole, TB is ''very'' influential as a gamer, often getting contacted by Indie developers to showcast new games and interviewing triple-A developers alike.

You can find his Website/YouTube channel here, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TotalHalibut TotalHalibut]]. In August of 2011, he created another Website/YouTube channel, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TotalBiscuit TotalBiscuit]], which he will use to host exclusively ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' content. He is yet another member of Creator/{{Polaris}}, and ever since it was called [=TheGameStation=] helps run a weekly podcast, now called the Co-Optional Podcast.

His YMMV page can be viewed [[{{YMMV/TheCynicalBrit}} HERE]].

[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] MeanBrit [[note]]Though, if game developing was the topic of a RealityShow, TB would ''definitely'' be the MeanBrit[[/note]]. Or [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation a certain OTHER cynical Brit]].
----
!!Tropes that apply to Total Biscuit:
* [[AbortedArc Aborted Video]]: He said he'd give a WTF is... of [[StreetFighter Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition]] in his Dannish Inquisition episode, he hasn't.
** He's mentioned that he creates a LOT of videos, has a lot of ideas for video series, but has to cut a lot of them because they don't meet his strict standards, he doesn't have the time for it, or other reasons (such as his boycott of SEGA related videos).
* AccidentalInnuendo: He does this from time to time, at which point either he or someone he is playing/casting with will inevitably tell people not to look into it. [[invoked]]
-->'''Crossing a Watermelon field while playing a female engineer in Guild Wars 2''': "Look at that advanced melon technology. No, not THAT kind of melon technology."
-->'''TB during his WTF is of Binary Domain:''' You will notice the camera is sort of jerking off to one side or another - ''no not like that'', jerking off ''to one side'' - [[GenreSavvy no, this is not going to sound good regardless of how I say it, let's just abandon that sentence.]]
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: During "WTF Is...''VideoGame/DutyCalls''," he's clearly pissed that it was made in place of a proper demo for the PC version of ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}'', yet can't help but laugh at it from beginning to end.
* AndAnotherThing: "Oh yeah, and [[ObviousBeta it crashes when you try to quit it!]]", at the end of one of his videos after the usual ending.
* AndThatsTerrible: During one of the Dead Rising 2: Broken Record videos
--> '''TB''': (to Jesse) Stop doing that or you'll break the game. And that's bad.
* {{Angrish}}: Lapses into this when playing [[NintendoHard punishingly difficult]] games, and since he has played quite a few of those, he speaks it almost fluently.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', Angrish is apparently "Hell-ese" and TB is very fluent in it, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny though it mostly involves asking for cooking ingredients]].
** At the end of his WTF is The Tiny Bang Story video he actually resumes recording after the designated end and almost [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16qZtnqUleU&t=47m5s immediately descends into this.]]
** He has since done a WTF Is... of ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden''. He sets a record for giving into rage about 2 minutes in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xY6TrLsN6qM and doesn't let up]][[note]]He has since stated that he was faking it in a parody of [=RagePlayers=] such as Tobuscus and [=PewDiePie=][[/note]].
* ApologeticAttacker: During his Blood Bowl game against Dodger.
* AuthorAppeal:
** Top hats and monocles appear to be high on his agenda.
** While the monocle isn't (yet), TB ''does'' wear a top hat on "official" videos in which his face is shown. One example of this would be his coverage of the GamesCom show.
** TB's a big Creator/TerryPratchett fan, sometimes encouraging people to read the books. The origin of his name? From the book ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', TotalBiscuit, a "horrible" name given to a child because of the child's culture. His first online handle also came from Creator/TerryPratchett, ''Soulcake''.
** Given quotings during his bout as Darkhalibut in DCUniverseOnline and also during his videos against [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] in ''Videogame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'', his love of Frank Klepacki's music and knowledge of events that occur within the series, it seems likely that TotalBiscuit is a fan of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer''.
---> '''TB:''': ''[[Videogame/CommandAndConquerGenerals You'll come for the toxins, but you'll stay because you're dead!]]''
* AwesomeMcCoolName: John [[AC:Bain]]. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in one of his ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'' videos, when he fights [[Franchise/{{Batman}} the other Bane]].
** And again in their latest ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' episode, where Jesse in his 'Bane' (him talking into a cup) voice...
--->'''Jesse:''' Ah, John 'TotalBiscuit' Bain. It is I, the ''real'' Bane...
** Even better is his son, ''Orion Bain''.
* {{Badass}}: See the entry for Gotham City Imposters in his CMOA page.
** BadassBoast: "I HAVE MORE YOUTUBE MONEY THAN GOD!"
*** On Twitter " I angered [[{{LetsPlay/PewDiePie}} pewdiepies]] [[FanDumb fanbase]] last night, do you really think I'm a known giver of a fucks?"
*** He gives another one during said aforementioned video on Gotham City Imposters.
---> [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiHcLEXmMO0 I AM THE FREAKIN ARCHMAGE OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!]]
** BadassBeard
** BadassInANiceSuit: His casting attire.
** BadassMoustache
** MemeticBadass: Invoked. Jesse is ''incredibly'' flattering towards TB during their ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay, among other situations.
---> '''Jesse''': Is this where you tell me, "I ate steak off the back of a naked Asian woman [for breakfast], then I went and killed a rhinoceros with my bare hands, upon which I took his horn and made a flute- even though it seems impossible. And I did that all before ''6 A.M.''"\\
'''TB''': Ah, so you do follow my Twitter.
* BerserkButton:
** Don't mess with Creator/HuskyStarcraft -- the guy is responsible for getting TB his Website/YouTube partnership, and the job to provide for his family, or, in TB's own words: "Husky is the reason my family still has a roof over their heads".
** [[invoked]] Has a bit of a trigger finger on banning FanDumb -- both his own and that of others. It doesn't matter if you like his videos, you love kittens or you like [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Ponies]] -- if you're being a dick about what you like, you will piss him off.
** Also, don't touch his hat, as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drAi35ipbnA&t=21m10s Jesse found out]] the hard way in ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''.
** [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Don't. Diss. Charity]]! Be it the HumbleIndieBundle or Red Cross. You ''WILL'' get shouted at, banned from his channel, and possibly set on fire through the internet.
** Newest one... Moogles, which make TotalBiscuit punch a kitten.
*** Chocobo~...
** His biggest one yet: Do not, under any circumstance, question TB's morals as a commentator and as a game consumer. Nearly an hour of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfuptVs94_U the fourth GameStation podcast]] was devoted to a debate/shouting contest between Jesse and TB on this.
** ''{{VideoGame/Minecraft}}''. He finds the game itself overrated, thinks the community is the worst on the internet, and has come to hate Mojang themselves, especially after Notch bad-mouthed the {{LetsPlay/Yogscast}} on Twitter after the first Minecon.
** [[VideoGame/SuperAmazingWagonAdventure Buffalo.]]
* BigNo: See [[BigWhat Big "WHAT!?"]] below.
** Combined with YouBastard at the loss of [[Videogame/FTLFasterThanLight Charlie the Mantis]], whose many kills stood as an unbeaten streak even as the game drew to a close.
* BigWhat: During his livestream of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' on [[NintendoHard Classic difficulty with Iron Man mode on]] he misses the alien with an 83% chance to hit. This is his reaction immediately followed by a [[BigNo Big "NO!"]]. [[http://www.twitch.tv/totalbiscuit/b/335049943 Jump to 15:13 if you'd like to see.]]
* BlasphemousBoast: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2Wdrr5ALnU TGS Podcast #39]].
-->'''TB''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny I have more Youtube money than GOD!]][[note]]Note: there actually is a youtube channel called GOD and TB does in fact have more youtube money than its owner[[/note]]
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Male Version. The 6th Podcast has [[OMFGcata Jesse]], TB and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]] respectively, {{Badass Beard}}s and all.
* BrutalHonesty: Comes hand in hand with the CausticCritic trope, don't expect him to soften the blow when picking faults.
--> '''TB (Speaking about Q.U.B.E. - [[RageQuit a puzzle game]]):''' "A well designed game with a lot of thought behind it... but has honestly the character of your average plank of wood."
* BuffySpeak: Phsysicsy Style (From his WTF Is of Intrusion 2) "Is that even a word? It is now."
* TheCameo:
** As pointed out by TB and Jesse in their Q & A video together on OMFGCata, Simon (a Gnome) and Lewis (then named Zephir, a Night Elf) are literally ''right there'' when TB is accepting and recording the "Peacebloom vs Ghouls" quest, back in the days when the {{Yogscast}}, TotalBiscuit, and OMFGCata had a friendly rivalry uploading ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' content as quickly as they could.
** Simon (Honeydew) decides to finally add TotalBiscuit to his {{Steam}} friends list during one of his ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' livestreams.
** Another one where he cameos during the {{Yogscast}}'s Earth Defense Force Livestream (audio only as the video is game footage). Notable of reducing [[LetsPlay/YogscastSips Sips]] to a blithering fanboy.
---> '''Sips:''' Say my name. Oh please say my name!\\
'''TB:''' Um...\\
* TB chats for a while then leaves*\\
'''Sips:''' He probably thinks I'm a weird fanboy now...
** And now Lewis is a cute necromancer girl followed by 4 meatpatchworked monsters while TB is a furry with a charrzooka and stabby stabby daggers in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8-9VEvAmFg&t=28m GW2 beta]].
--->'''TB: '''Greetings Lewis, how are you today?
** In Tom Syndicate's 6th August Minecraft Project livestream, TB called him up on Skype after 15 minutes to help him with streaming lag issues.
* CatchPhrase: Numerous. Some of the most frequent ones seem to be more along the lines of a VerbalTic, in fact.
--> "Fire ze missiles!" \\
"I'm working on it." \\
"Yes indeed.." \\
"Sounds reasonable." \\
"That's problematic." \\
"Covered in [[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]]!"\\
"Yes, it is delicious!"\\
"My name is TotalBiscuit and I'm here to ask and answer one simple question... [[TitleDrop WTF is]] [[MadLibsCatchPhrase [insert game title here]]]?"\\
"By any stretch of the imagination"\\
"Free [[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]]! My favorite kind of [[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]]!"\\
"Big fan of that."\\
"Ah, ''bollocks''..."\\
"[[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]] is/are the worst thing/things in the world..."\\
"Death to you!"
---> "Death to the heathens!"
----> [[Music/{{Manowar}} "Death to those who play false metal!"]]
--> "Onwards, for great justice!"\\
"Let us rock and/or roll... whichever comes first."\\
"Lets kick it off, shall we?"\\
"Funny how that works."\\
"I can tell you that for a fact."\\
"...in any way, shape or form."\\
"Honestly" or "If I'm being totally honest."\\
"Wundabar!"\\
"For the good of the land!"\\
"Beta is Beta." or "Alpha is Alpha"\\
"At the end of the day..."\\
"Sit down!"\\
"...as much as Humanly (sometimes [[VideoGame/StarcraftII Zergly]]) possible\\
"...see what he can see..."\\
"...streaming across the map"\\
"Bit of a bugbear;..."\\
"Welcome to the Game Station Podcast where we occasionally talk about Videogames."\\
"...as a direct result..."\\
"I have more... [[BlasphemousBoast than god!]]"
* CatchPhraseInterruptus:
--> "Onward, for great (''*[[TheManyDeathsOfYou Meat Boy runs into buzzsaw]]*'') ...death"
** A game called VideoGame/NoTimeToExplain also does this to him a few times;
---> '''TB''': "Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Totalbiscuit and I'm here to as-- \\
'''PC''': [[DynamicEntry *Crashes into the room*]] "I am you from the future, there's no time to explain! Follow me to -- OH CHRIST!! WAAAAH!!" *giant claw grabs PC*\\
'''TB''': "What the Chr--? *{{Beat}}* My name is Totalb--" \\
'''PC, still in Claw''': "Use the arrow keys to move!! UAAHGH!!" \\
'''TB''': "[[{{Unpaused}} --iscuit...]] and I'm here... to ask and answer one simple question..."
** He also namechecks the trope during WTF is... Dustforce.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: During the Star Wars Kinect Dance Off and the 14th podcast, TB visibly drinks the least amount of Champagne among the three of them, but looks even more drunk than Jesse (downed his whole bottle [[note]]Or, well.. he did spill a lot of his and filled a colostomy bag with liquor, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfscLnagXDE see here]][[/note]], yet only acts slightly more silly than usual) and Dodger (almost finished her bottle and does not look drunk at all).
* CausticCritic: At times, but less often than the name "Cynical Brit" would suggest. He's actually quite fair, and often finds something to appreciate even in a game he doesn't like.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Upon going to Paris and witnessing the Eiffel Tower lit up, his reply is this:
--> '''TB:''' That is '''NOT''' energy efficient.
* CutenessProximity: He's not usually a victim of this, but then the Popori appeared. "[[TeraOnline IT'S A BEAVER]]!"
** That said, this trope is possibly parodied for the most part. There have been quite a few times where he said something that isn't stereotypically cute (like the skull in ''VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine'') being adorable.
** One instance of this happened during Easter Day where his twitter avatar became a cute rabbit, followed up by him [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEcYkZhlVlc linking to bunny videos on YouTube]] and posting random cute bunny pictures throughout the day. Subscribers and followers of his Twitter had a WildMassGuessing about whether he was momentarily possessed, drunk, sad, hungry for rabbit meat, {{Troll}}ing, if it was his wife, or if he had a soft spot for bunnies.
--->'''Subscriber''': Cynical Fleet currently experiencing bunnies, please try again later.
** If he can't acquire a guest host (or one of the regular hosts is unavailable) for the weekly [=TGS=] Podcast, he'll replace the spot in the overlay with either a still image or video of a cute animal, often one of his own pet chinchillas.
* DeadpanSnarker: While playing ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' with Lewis and Simon of the {{Yogscast}}.
** To be fair, he is this quite often, even outside of his videogaming.
*** Including when reading his own TV tropes pages: "Apparently I am a DeadpanSnarker"
* {{Determinator}}: He can be quite persistent in his efforts to complete a task set before him, be it by a game or by a person.
--> I'm not leaving until this is done! I don't care if this is a three-hour freaking video! It's gonna happen!
** [[spoiler:When it came to ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'', though...]]
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Has come out against the used game market in a May 2013 "Devil's Halibut" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G_f8YBy39M video]], accusing it of depriving developers of revenue in exchange for lining the pockets of greedy retailers like Game and [=GameStop=]. It was... [[InternetBackdraft controversial]], to say the least.
* DoubleTake: During his WTF is {{Darkspore}}.
--> "Hold stuff down and you get this combo, called the 'voltic slash' it's got a cooldown right there, two meter range... Two meter range? That's fairly impressive, quite the reach on that guy!"
%%
%% EarnYourHappyEnding is a series's ending trope, and cannot be applied to real life people.
%%
* EpicFail: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5a09JVXoxs&t=3m17s This Terraria video]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpR7U5hnwHE The end of this Hearthstone video applies as well.]]
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: During his multiplayer WTF of Section 8: Prejudice, he gets killed by an elevator slamming him into the edge of the door.
--> "Did I just get killed by an elevator? *{{Beat}}* I just git auhg-uhhug... Everything in this game is out to kill me! And is doing an exceptionally good job of it.
** Also during his Halloween playthrough of ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'':
---> "Nothing is bloody safe in this game!"
* EvilLaugh: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_yJiOD7qJ8&t=21m36s Just listen to that laugh!]]
** [[FaceHeelTurn DarkHalibut]] gets a pretty good, hammy "super-villain" one in the beginning of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UVnOxeYl8A this]] video.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm3qOAt7GgU&&t=26m11s Now with added intimidating echo!]]
** Then he started playing Dungeon Land with Jesse, Dodger, and Genna. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVNS38h9k5U With TB as the dungeon master.]] [[HilarityEnsues You can probably guess what happens.]]
* ExpansionPackPast: To date, he has been recorded saying that he has been a drummer, singer, game store clerk, economic consultant, radio caster, and game commentator.
* FlatWhat: TB's reaction to Jesse's revelation in ''Terraria'' that their fans have made GenderFlip slashfic.
** During Dungeonland, Jesse's given pause when TB introduces his EliteMook.
---> '''Jeese''': The... dire...duck?\\
'''TB''': *Matter of factly* The dire duck.
* GagDub: The Cynical Redub series of videos, which riff video game conferences. The description even says it was inspired by other AbridgedSeries, though it currently doesn't fit the description of the trope.
* GodwinsLaw: Played straight and {{lampshaded}} in his Mailbox for February 15, 2012:
-->''You want hate? You see what the Nazis did, that's hate! [[LampshadeHanging Yes I brought the Nazis in]].'' --TotalBiscuit, disagreeing with the term "hater" to describe someone who strongly dislikes a game.
* GoneHorriblyRight: His ''WTF'' is of ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden''. He made it intending it to be a [[StealthParody parody]] of "rageplayers" on Youtube who overreact to everything, getting outraged over the smallest things and throwing in plenty of {{Out Of Character Moment}}s in order to emphasise this. Unfortunately, he managed to do a rage video a bit ''too'' well and created a genuinely funny video. Naturally, most people didn't get the joke.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: A portion of his humor, especially in the ''Terraria'' LP.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The trope name was actually name dropped in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Teb0vJ3qXQk March 21, 2012 Mailbox.]]
** [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist by his own vocabulary]] during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKxeyTC0Ukk&t=14m48s this]] Terraria episode, you're welcome world.
* HypocriticalHumor: Emphasis on humor. He has a personal disdain of [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] because he finds them devoid of creativity, but his [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] with the {{Yogscast}} and [[OMFGCata Jesse]] are some of his most popular and hilarious videos.
* InsistentTerminology:
** [[RunningGag He doesn't do reviews -- he does FIRST IMPRESSIONS.]]
** The ''Terraria'' LP with Jesse is not a Let's Play, it's a [[RunningGag talk show]]. There's even a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRAJeEBGECw video]] to prove this.
** More of a pronunciation insistence but he has stated on numerous occasions that the British way of saying 'issues' (ISS-yews) is much better than the American way (ISH-ews)
* [[ItsPronouncedTroPAY It's Pronounced]] [[DynastyWarriors Dee-Nah-Stee Warriors,]] [[ShinMegamiTensei Shin Meh-Goo-Me Ten-See,]] [[ProjectXZone Project Ex Zone,]] [[ItsPronouncedTroPAY Etc.]]: though the last one is mostly to troll people who take proper pronunciation too seriously
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: In Episode 39 of their Terraria series, TB and Jesse decide to make some Spelunker potions to help with finding the new ores to make better equipment. They head out to find Moonglow, which is one of the ingredients, and continue to search for it throughout episodes 40-42. They return with only 2 Moonglow and one Moonglow seed, and when Jesse opens one of the chests to find clay to make a pot...
--> '''Jesse:''' Uh, we have a chest full of- ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? There's a chest filled with 5 Moonglow!
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He can be a bit of a jerk sometimes, but his criticisms are all well meaning, and he does do work that's completely for charity.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: How an innocent fishing boat turns into a boat full of Satan's diseased orphan spawn.
* JumpScare: Encounters one with [[SpeakOfTheDevil impeccable timing]] in "An Early Look At ''Outlast''".
--> '''TB:'''If you blow your load too quickly with jump scares-(Opens the door, cue ScareChord) '''''AAHH'', JESUS CHRIST!'''
* KnightInSourArmor: TB can be extremely bitter and realistic about the motives of publishers, developers, even gamers, and always points out the flaws in the industry....but it is very clear that he utterly loves his job, and believes Gaming will continue to be a hugely beneficial medium.
* LargeHam: He tends to seemingly overreact to certain things.
--> ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy "I FEEL EVERY DEATH IN THE HEART OF MY ]]'' '''''SOUL'''''"\\
"Oh, you have a [[VideoGame/StarcraftII viking]], uh, that's adorable... ''[[WavemotionGun YAMATO CANNON]]!!!'' BOOM!! [[CaptainObvious You don't have a viking anymore]]."
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuxPVa4OnQ8 The Ballad of TotalBiscuit]], also available in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWqzfLpKe5M shortened version]], played during the ending of most of his videos. He originally used [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean He's a Pirate]], until he was asked not to for copyright issues. The artist then made the ballad using a similar melody.
** FanNickname: There is an ongoing petition to rename the song ''Monocle (and/or) Top Hat of Destiny''.
* IaijutsuPractitioner: Has a training sword in real life dedicated to this, according to the 45th TGS podcast.
* LiteralistSnarking: Along with DeadpanSnarker, usually towards some stupid question already answered by him.
--> '''Guy on twitter, having missed TB's announcements about the assembly in Finland''': What's in Finland?\\
'''TB''': Finns.
* MadnessMantra: During his WTF is of LoneSurvivor.
-->'''TB:''' There was no jazz at all! [[ItMakesSenseInContext NO JAZZ AT ALL!]]
* TheMeanBrit
* MindScrew: He starts thinking this near the end of ''VideoGame/ThirtyFlightsOfLoving''. Although he feels there's some sort of significance to everything, he feels as if he's too stupid to get it.
* MissingEpisode: The three lost ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' videos. All of them had the videos lost (the second and third by accidental deletion on TB's part) but the audio saved, and TB has released the second and third lost episodes (meant to be before episode 32) as an [[http://www.cynicalbrit.com/audio/terraria_lostepisodes.mp3 audio podcast]]. The first one, meant to be before episode 13, has not been released, though.
** TotalBiscuit has said in an AMA on Reddit that the file for Episode 13 was "[[http://www.reddit.com/r/Cynicalbrit/comments/10o4x5/i_am_totalbiscuit_i_make_videos_on_the_internet/c6f7aky?context=3 completely fucked]]" and therefore was never released.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um_rftrTNcs Behold, Cranky Cat! Too good for Greenlight!]]
* NauseaFuel: Invoked. He gets motion sickness from playing ''Datajammers: Fast Forward''.
** See also "WTF Is...VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac". He says several times that the game, while fun and very well-made, is absolutely disturbing and disgusting.
* NeedsMoreLove: Invoked. He thought ''[[{{Section8}} Section 8: Prejudice]]'' was becoming so massively underrated that he decided to feature it a second time.
** To the point where he created an entire series based on the concept, called "This is why we can't have nice things."
* NiceHat: Why yes he does own a top hat in RealLife, and if there is a top hat to be obtained in a game he'll make it one of his top priorities to get it.
** He owns a variety of other hats. A running gag on [=TGS=] Podcast is that every episode he wears a different hat, either sent in by a fan or self-purchased.
** [[BaldOfAwesome (Nearly) Bald of Awesome]]: The reason for his extensive hat collection is because of his very stressful casting life along with complications in his personal life (See his Crowning Moment of Heartwarming page for details)and the fact that baldness runs in his family, his hair started thinning out. To hide this, if he can he will wear a hat. Although, without a hat on and his usual attire when casting ([[BadassInANiceSuit a suit and tie]]) as shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rwX-Wutn0U here]], he has been commented on to look like a [[TheDon Mafia Boss]].
* OneOfUs:
** He mentions Tvtropes on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu_TiBM6SkY the first episode]] of the [[Creator/{{Polaris}} GameStation]] podcast, as well as dropping trope names in other videos, including the second episode of aforementioned podcast.
** He's also a registered Troper, mentioning that he reads TV Tropes quite a bit in the Febuary 15th, 2012 Mailbox and references his page ([[AndZoidberg as well as]] OMFGCata's.)
** The [[RuleOfThree third time]] is during the 14th podcast, where he rather proudly declares himself a SnarkKnight.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: [[invoked]] Averted, he thoroughly enjoys doing his work (The FanDumb that comes with it, not so much), and is not above doing charity work and donating to charity. Of course he has to earn a living from his work, but money is not the primary motivator.
--> TB (speaking of money he earned): ''"As regards to the money I don't really care, so I went and bought'' [[http://www.justgiving.com/yogscast a goat]]."
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: One of his catch phrases is to call a game "The Premier [*insert short, few word description pertaining to one aspect of the game*] Simulator."
* {{Podcast}}:
** Has done numerous "classic" radio shows and podcasts; the most notable one, also discontinued shortly after quitting ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', was "Blue Plz".
** One of the regular hosts of "The Co-Optional Podcast" (formerly "The Game Station Podcast") alongside [[OMFGCata Jesse Cox]] and [[PressHeartToContinue Dodger.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: At the end of his video ''WTF is [=GLaDoS=] doing in The Ball?'', after having struggled with a simple ball-based physics puzzle and (finally) passing it:
--> ''I am the master [[DoubleEntendre of my own balls!]]'' (sees a ball-required pressure pad) ''Bollocks.''
** In fact, pretty much any use of profanity on TB's part (outside videos containing "spur-of-the-moment" reactions such as his Hallowe'en special on Amnesia: The Dark Descent or daily [=VoDs=] of his raw I Suck At Starcraft stream) - due to its irregularity, even despite his tendency to rant/be cynical - could be considered one of these.
** Subverted in his ''Super VideoGame/MeatBoy'' video:
---> '''TB''': You have ''any'' idea how difficult it is (''*[[TheManyDeathsOfYou Meat Boy runs into buzzsaw]]*'') to resist the urge to say ''FFFFFFFFFF'''''''AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!'''''
** He outright stated during a ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' livestream that it wouldn't be going up on his Website/YouTube channel ''because'' he was swearing so much. It would go against his personal expectations when it comes to the quality of his videos.
** His first death in ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden'' produces one of these, and a subsequent death provokes a, "SON OF A BITCH!".
* PungeonMaster: Quite literally in the Dungeonland videos.
* RealMenWearPink: He mentions tea parties in his WTF is... of VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac (though it was most likely a joke based on the situation).
** He also mentioned RobotUnicornAttack in his WTF is... of Who's That Flying.
** He also has a tendency to make some of his character avatars (special mention to his [[Franchise/MassEffect Krogan]] from the ''Mass Effect 3'' Multiplayer) wear mostly or completely pink. If not pink, some other ridiculous color.
* RousingSpeech: He's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8JeYIWQgrE surprisingly good]] speaker.
* RunningGag: Numerous.
** TotalBiscuit's and Jesse's ineptitude with explosives in their ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay.
** Earlier, he Simon and Lewis had issues with explosives (a spell combination Simon discovered, which they began calling "ARSE Mines" after the keys needed to cast it) in their VideoGame/{{Magicka}} series with the {{Yogscast}}.
** There's also the completely unrelated matter of TB describing games he plays as simulators:
--->''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'': The premier mage suicide simulator!\\
''Videogame/NitronicRush'': The premier car breakdancing simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Limbo}}'': The premier get-stabbed-by-shadowy-spider simulator!\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cxM5UIsAnE Envirobear2000]]'': The premier bear driving simulator!\\
''VideoGame/OrcsMustDie'': The premier orc stabbing and trap placing simulator!\\
''VideoGame/{{Journey}}'': The premier cloth flying simulator!\\
''Videogame/ZenoClash'': a punch-alien-bird-men in the face simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{The War Z}}'': The premier being-killed-by-a-floating-rucksack simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Dear Esther}}'': The premier Hold-W simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Shelter}}'': The premier badger survival simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{The Last Of Us}}'': The premier tragic walking simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Antichamber}}'': The premier brain melting out your ears simulator!\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjpStRyKI2c Go Home Dinosaurs]]'': The world's premiere BBQ defense simulator[[note]]An AscendedMeme: it was the developers, not TotalBiscuit, who coined the phrase. When pressed on it, they replied that it was because they watched his videos.[[/note]]
** A Meta-example: Whenever a Website/YouTube Video receives recognition from TB (via a Like or share on his channel), expect one of the top liked comments to be some variation of "The Cynical Fleet has Arrived" because of the legion of TB fans watching the video.
*** This originated from TB's tendency of 1-base Battlecruiser-rushing on ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' before he switched to Zerg: It got popular enough for the subscriber icons in chat to be Battlecruisers, the subscribers to be named the Cynical Fleet, and the cruisers themselves to be renamed "Biscuitcruisers".
*** A variation of this is "A TotalBiscuit army is approaching from the west!", derived from the Terraria in-game message 'A goblin army is approaching from the west/east!'
** TotalBiscuit pronouncing M. Night Shyamalan as Shyamalalalal.
* SarcasmMode: Absolutely overloaded during his video ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um_rftrTNcs "Behold Cranky Cat, too good for Greenlight"]]''... With a rather strange twist that turns it into... Something else altogether... It's easier to just watch the video and watch the magic unfold before your eyes, than trying to explain it.
* ScheduleSlip: In regards to his ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' co-op with the {{Yogscast}}; the three had increasingly busy schedules starting after Part 8, and Part 14, a 40+ minute episode, had audio issues that TotalBiscuit still hadn't edited out yet when it was released ''two months'' after recording.
** This happened with his Terraria series, although that's due to a combination of a very busy schedule and complete apathy to continue the series.
* SelfDeprecation: If his video on his role in ''{{VideoGame/Awesomenauts}}'' is any indication, he doesn't seem to have all that much confidence in the lines he recorded for the game, or whether or not he thought he was the best choice for the character.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T75aLLbODk The Top 5 Worst videos I made in 2012.]]
-->'''TB''': I present to you the top 5 worst pieces of shit that I put on my channel in 2012, because good lord, there have been a lot of bad videos.
** In the Game Station podcast, while talking with [[HundredPercentCompletion Gerard the Completionist]], he did some good-natured ribbing on his own tendency to look at options menus first during WTF Is? (and FOV sliders in particular) by coming up with a hypothetical Let's Play channel called "TB Doesn't Complete It" ("the worst LP channel on the entire Internet"). It consists entirely of him looking at the options menu, fiddling with the FOV slider (or complaining if it isn't there) and then ending the video.
* {{Spoonerism}}: Mentioned by name in his WTF is... video for Dustforce.
* {{Squee}}: Oh, so ''very'' much during his video ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb50aAFiOpM WTF is Warhammer 40k: Space Marine?]]''
** During his WTF Is... Magicka video, half of the video is explaining why the game is so good, and the other half is Totalbiscuit enacting the lighter counterpart of {{angrish}}.
---> '''TB:''' ''You can actually [[ViolationOfCommonSense set yourself on fire]]!''
* {{Straight Man|AndWiseGuy}}: To [[OMFGCata Jesse Cox]]'s [[StraightManAndWiseGuy Wise Guy]], when paired up in projects such as ''DCUniverseOnline'' and ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''.
** Hell, he's pretty much the [[StraightManAndWiseGuy Straight Man]] to the entire Game Station. Which says a lot about the Game Station.
** He [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] it himself in the Terraria series.
--->'''TB:''' "You're the funny guy, I'm the straight guy, start singing, dammit!"\\
'''Jesse:''' "I dunno if I'd call you the straight guy! '''HEY-O!'''"\\
'''TB:''' ''*Disgusted Sigh*''
* TheSnarkKnight: He appears to have a worldly disdain for anything and anyone around him, including some of his closest e-friends...
** ...To the point where he clearly reacts positively when the trope itself is referenced in relation to him during the 14th TGS Podcast.
* SophisticatedAsHell: TotalBiscuit's response to [[PressHeartToContinue Dodger]] challenging him to 'bring it' during [[Creator/{{Polaris}} TheGameStation]]'s BloodBowl league:
-->'''TB:''' "There is a statistical likelihood that I can 'bring it'. But there are certain inherent risks within the 'bringing it'. So I have to carefully consider the consequences of 'bringing it'. The conclusion so far is that it may be worthwhile to 'bring it.'"
* StealthParody: He has clarified that his ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden'''s video was a {{satire|ParodyPastiche}}, and that it included lots of fake rage and {{Out of Character Moment}}s in order to hint people about the true nature of the video. But much to his chagrin, no one understood the true joke, mostly because it was a genuinely funny video. The fact that he denied it halfway through with his, "No, this game is PAIN" quote didn't help.
* StockholmSyndrome: Brings this up whenever referring to the [[FanDumb overly-defensive]] fanboys of ''The War Z'', particularly when said defensiveness is juxtaposed around the...questionable approach to the game's release and advertising.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: More like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j190cYqxD_w Awesome Statements' Dance Mix]], though...brought to you by the same man who made OMFGCata's.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiHcLEXmMO0 And now with one of his podcasts.]]
* [[TheSpock Superego]]: In a FreudianTrio with Lewis's [[TheKirk ego]] and Simon's [[TheMcCoy id]] in the ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2'' videos.
* ThatOneLevel: Discussed in-universe with [[spoiler: the entirety of]] "WTF Is ''Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters''". The second level involves making risky low-level bombing runs in an extremely hilly area, without passing over [[FakeDifficulty a radar ceiling that ends the mission instantly]]. [[spoiler: He spends the entire episode trying to get past this level.]]
* TotallyRadical: Occasionally attempts this ironically, with [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy predictable results.]]
-->'''TB:''' Yo yo! The west side! Lemme - lemme spit for ya... and such.
-->'''Jesse:''' That... that is... no. No. Never - on behalf of the world, no. Don't spit for us.
* TranquilFury: Used in his video about the school shootings in America in late 2012. He also gave the media a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech for focusing not on the victims, but on the shooter, even if it makes ''no damn sense to when the victims were children''.
* {{Troll}}: Towards Simon of the {{Yogscast}} in ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' and to a lesser extent ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2''.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: {{Discussed}} in-universe when playing ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' and ''DearEsther''.
* VerbalTic: Overlaps with {{Angrish}}. His version of distinct from others. It sounds like a weird combination of a squeak, squawk and screech.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Initially thinks the Mechanic in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' is male. [[invoked]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Jesse Cox of OMFGCata, though he admits that it's a bit played up. A bit, but not very much: he still hates Jesse. Even in front of their TGS associates.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FYEo_FUK2w Now in song form...]]
** He gets along pretty well with Lewis of the {{Yogscast}}. Simon? Not so much. [[FridgeBrilliance Maybe it's because Simon is too similar to Jesse in both looks and actions...]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: Or more to the point, ''[[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why did it have to be puzzle games (or any game that requires puzzle-solving skills)]]''?? TB is Dyspraxic, which according to a comment, ''is a motor learning difficulty that can affect planning of movements and coordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body'', which means it takes TB around twice as long to solve puzzles as someone who doesn't have this.
** Despite this, he seems to really like Super ''VideoGame/MeatBoy'', which is hard enough already for a person without dyspraxia!
* WeSellEverything: {{Discussed}} and basically ranted about in Part 4 of his ''VideoGame/KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JITD7sbVWU&t=4m37s livestream]].
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: When Wowcrendor's skink player [[PintsizedPowerhouse "Lil Skittles"]] became very famous in the TGS Blood Bowl league, TB named his bull centaur "Big Skittles" upon buying him.
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings:
** [[invoked]] Will never ''ever'' post a ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' video due to the FanDumb: According to TB, once you go ''Minecraft'', you never go back because of never ending fan demand. Funny enough, his wife, Intricacy, had her first Cynical Brit Community News video with ''Minecraft'' in the background, even lampshading how she's going against TB's "no ''Minecraft''" rule.
** Ditto for ''VideoGame/HeroesOfNewerth''. TB isn't going to cover it mostly because the community is so horrible, but especially because, when he'd done his first ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' video, he received a massive amount of hatemail from ''Heroes'' players insulting him and demanding him to cover their superior game instead. Yeah. Not too hard to believe.
** TB no longer reads the Website/YouTube comments in his videos because of the sheer amount of stupidity that resides there. He used to read them, but blocked them on his personal computer after his doctor told him they had ''given him stress-related illness''. Now, his volunteer mods and his wife read them for him and relay the best and most frequent comments. Whenever he does occasionally read and respond to comments, it is like seeing chum thrown into a shark pool.
** At this stage, the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' community is nearing this point as well, as despite having stated on several occasions that he will not do ''Skyrim'' content (because he wouldn't be able to live up to the standard for content on his page (as well, he's outright stated that he just doesn't like Skyrim, so that's probably why), and also because everyone and their mother is doing it), he still gets tweets, Facebook messages and Website/YouTube comments on whether or not he will do a ''WTF is... Skyrim''.
** It's gotten to the point where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zqSnlzXcGU he has made a video solely to explain why he doesn't take requests.]] He called out a commenter for accusing him of being a jerk just because he stated, in a neutral tone, "I don't do requests". His explanation basically boils down to the fact that taking requests results in going straight down a slippery slope, would make it harder for him to do his job, and would just be a massive disservice to his viewers. Sadly, it's inevitable that some people will not get the point.
** No longer does giveaways thanks to massive bile from a particularly vocal minority amongst the non-North Armerican viewerbase over a graphics card giveaway. Why were they angry? Because the giveaway was limited to North America due to contest laws varying wildly outside it and massive shipping costs across continents, which could very easilly have gone up to $1000. Once again, a case of a few bad apples spoiling the rest of the basket.
*** Some exceptions are made, usually where shipping is not an issue (i.e. giving away Steam keys for titles, such as ''VideoGame/RetroCityRampage''.)
** And now he's disabled the voting feature on Youtube's comments on all his videos.
* WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings: Has an irregular show called this, and in a sense it fits the description of the trope: The show focuses on good and memorable games that didn't sell all that well because of either bad rep by review sites or questionable decisions by the developer. Like his "WTF is", this sometimes leads to a massive sales increase for a short while after.
* WhyWontYouDie: Says this word for word after trying (and failing) several times to kill Lil' Skittles during the final match of the TGS Blood Bowl tournament.
* WorstAid: I'm sure you can [[{{Scribblenauts}} perform surgery]] with an [[AxeCrazy axe, right?]]
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Uses the term "8-bit" to describe any game with {{Retreaux}} graphics, despite the fact that most of them are actually representative of 16 and 32-bit systems.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: If you estimate using his voice and the way he looks without his NiceHat on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0X9aGdI2-Gc here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp4SQVkkZ0Q here]], it's easy to forget that he's 28 and actually younger than [[{{Yogscast}} Simon Lane (34), Lewis Brindley (29)]] and [[OMFGCata Jesse Cox (30)]].

[[TheMeanBrit The Cynical Brit]].

AKA [[Literature/{{Discworld}} TotalBiscuit]]; [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft TotalHalibut;]] [[VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline Dark Halibut]]; [[VideoGame/TheSecretWorld El Poncho Grande]]; [[AwesomeMcCoolName John Bain]].

John Bain, better known by his screen name TotalBiscuit, is a British-born creator of Website/YouTube videos and commentary showcasing his first impressions of whatever game has only just been released. He does fast-paced ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' Multiplayer commentary, first-impression videos of indie games on {{Steam}} and other digital-distribution platforms through a series known as ''WTF is...'', and collaborations with other channels, such as co-op playthroughs of ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2'' with the {{Yogscast}} guys and a ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' series with Jesse Cox of OMFGCata.
As for his ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' involvement, he became a sponsor for Team Dignitas' [=BlinG=], and has founded Team Axiom, which currently has 5 players.

During his time with Wow Radio, TotalBiscuit hosted a few shows - Dungeon Master (a short-lived non-intensive raid guide), Titan, TB's Show About Videogames and EPIC! - but, in the world of podcasts, he is best known for both his "shock-jock"-inspired persona and ''Blue Plz'', a ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' weekly podcast, ''Cataclysm'' expansion beta (and afterward, published content) playthroughs with commentary, and daily updates of "[=WoW=] news and content" through his ''Azeroth Daily'' videos. He discontinued his regular ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' videos as of May 2011 and, although he continued it for a few weeks afterwards, has confirmed that ''Blue Plz'' is "done for good" as well. He has also done 27 videos of an ambitious LetsPlay for ''ShiningForceIII'' (which he has unfortunately been forced to take down due to copyright claims by Sega Japan), and had been embarking on a playthrough of ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'' after a handful of beta content videos were well-received on his channel.

As a bit of Trivia, TotalBiscuit has been said by the {{Yogscast}} to own ''every'' game on {{Steam}}, despite this not actually being true, his {{Steam}} account is [[http://www.steamcalculator.com/id/TotalBiscuit worth quite a bit]] Regardless of the hyperbole, TB is ''very'' influential as a gamer, often getting contacted by Indie developers to showcast new games and interviewing triple-A developers alike.

You can find his Website/YouTube channel here, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TotalHalibut TotalHalibut]]. In August of 2011, he created another Website/YouTube channel, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TotalBiscuit TotalBiscuit]], which he will use to host exclusively ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' content. He is yet another member of Creator/{{Polaris}}, and ever since it was called [=TheGameStation=] helps run a weekly podcast, now called the Co-Optional Podcast.

His YMMV page can be viewed [[{{YMMV/TheCynicalBrit}} HERE]].

[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] MeanBrit [[note]]Though, if game developing was the topic of a RealityShow, TB would ''definitely'' be the MeanBrit[[/note]]. Or [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation a certain OTHER cynical Brit]].
----
!!Tropes that apply to Total Biscuit:
* [[AbortedArc Aborted Video]]: He said he'd give a WTF is... of [[StreetFighter Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition]] in his Dannish Inquisition episode, he hasn't.
** He's mentioned that he creates a LOT of videos, has a lot of ideas for video series, but has to cut a lot of them because they don't meet his strict standards, he doesn't have the time for it, or other reasons (such as his boycott of SEGA related videos).
* AccidentalInnuendo: He does this from time to time, at which point either he or someone he is playing/casting with will inevitably tell people not to look into it. [[invoked]]
-->'''Crossing a Watermelon field while playing a female engineer in Guild Wars 2''': "Look at that advanced melon technology. No, not THAT kind of melon technology."
-->'''TB during his WTF is of Binary Domain:''' You will notice the camera is sort of jerking off to one side or another - ''no not like that'', jerking off ''to one side'' - [[GenreSavvy no, this is not going to sound good regardless of how I say it, let's just abandon that sentence.]]
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: During "WTF Is...''VideoGame/DutyCalls''," he's clearly pissed that it was made in place of a proper demo for the PC version of ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}'', yet can't help but laugh at it from beginning to end.
* AndAnotherThing: "Oh yeah, and [[ObviousBeta it crashes when you try to quit it!]]", at the end of one of his videos after the usual ending.
* AndThatsTerrible: During one of the Dead Rising 2: Broken Record videos
--> '''TB''': (to Jesse) Stop doing that or you'll break the game. And that's bad.
* {{Angrish}}: Lapses into this when playing [[NintendoHard punishingly difficult]] games, and since he has played quite a few of those, he speaks it almost fluently.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', Angrish is apparently "Hell-ese" and TB is very fluent in it, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny though it mostly involves asking for cooking ingredients]].
** At the end of his WTF is The Tiny Bang Story video he actually resumes recording after the designated end and almost [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16qZtnqUleU&t=47m5s immediately descends into this.]]
** He has since done a WTF Is... of ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden''. He sets a record for giving into rage about 2 minutes in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xY6TrLsN6qM and doesn't let up]][[note]]He has since stated that he was faking it in a parody of [=RagePlayers=] such as Tobuscus and [=PewDiePie=][[/note]].
* ApologeticAttacker: During his Blood Bowl game against Dodger.
* AuthorAppeal:
** Top hats and monocles appear to be high on his agenda.
** While the monocle isn't (yet), TB ''does'' wear a top hat on "official" videos in which his face is shown. One example of this would be his coverage of the GamesCom show.
** TB's a big Creator/TerryPratchett fan, sometimes encouraging people to read the books. The origin of his name? From the book ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', TotalBiscuit, a "horrible" name given to a child because of the child's culture. His first online handle also came from Creator/TerryPratchett, ''Soulcake''.
** Given quotings during his bout as Darkhalibut in DCUniverseOnline and also during his videos against [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] in ''Videogame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'', his love of Frank Klepacki's music and knowledge of events that occur within the series, it seems likely that TotalBiscuit is a fan of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer''.
---> '''TB:''': ''[[Videogame/CommandAndConquerGenerals You'll come for the toxins, but you'll stay because you're dead!]]''
* AwesomeMcCoolName: John [[AC:Bain]]. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in one of his ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'' videos, when he fights [[Franchise/{{Batman}} the other Bane]].
** And again in their latest ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' episode, where Jesse in his 'Bane' (him talking into a cup) voice...
--->'''Jesse:''' Ah, John 'TotalBiscuit' Bain. It is I, the ''real'' Bane...
** Even better is his son, ''Orion Bain''.
* {{Badass}}: See the entry for Gotham City Imposters in his CMOA page.
** BadassBoast: "I HAVE MORE YOUTUBE MONEY THAN GOD!"
*** On Twitter " I angered [[{{LetsPlay/PewDiePie}} pewdiepies]] [[FanDumb fanbase]] last night, do you really think I'm a known giver of a fucks?"
*** He gives another one during said aforementioned video on Gotham City Imposters.
---> [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiHcLEXmMO0 I AM THE FREAKIN ARCHMAGE OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!]]
** BadassBeard
** BadassInANiceSuit: His casting attire.
** BadassMoustache
** MemeticBadass: Invoked. Jesse is ''incredibly'' flattering towards TB during their ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay, among other situations.
---> '''Jesse''': Is this where you tell me, "I ate steak off the back of a naked Asian woman [for breakfast], then I went and killed a rhinoceros with my bare hands, upon which I took his horn and made a flute- even though it seems impossible. And I did that all before ''6 A.M.''"\\
'''TB''': Ah, so you do follow my Twitter.
* BerserkButton:
** Don't mess with Creator/HuskyStarcraft -- the guy is responsible for getting TB his Website/YouTube partnership, and the job to provide for his family, or, in TB's own words: "Husky is the reason my family still has a roof over their heads".
** [[invoked]] Has a bit of a trigger finger on banning FanDumb -- both his own and that of others. It doesn't matter if you like his videos, you love kittens or you like [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Ponies]] -- if you're being a dick about what you like, you will piss him off.
** Also, don't touch his hat, as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drAi35ipbnA&t=21m10s Jesse found out]] the hard way in ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''.
** [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Don't. Diss. Charity]]! Be it the HumbleIndieBundle or Red Cross. You ''WILL'' get shouted at, banned from his channel, and possibly set on fire through the internet.
** Newest one... Moogles, which make TotalBiscuit punch a kitten.
*** Chocobo~...
** His biggest one yet: Do not, under any circumstance, question TB's morals as a commentator and as a game consumer. Nearly an hour of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfuptVs94_U the fourth GameStation podcast]] was devoted to a debate/shouting contest between Jesse and TB on this.
** ''{{VideoGame/Minecraft}}''. He finds the game itself overrated, thinks the community is the worst on the internet, and has come to hate Mojang themselves, especially after Notch bad-mouthed the {{LetsPlay/Yogscast}} on Twitter after the first Minecon.
** [[VideoGame/SuperAmazingWagonAdventure Buffalo.]]
* BigNo: See [[BigWhat Big "WHAT!?"]] below.
** Combined with YouBastard at the loss of [[Videogame/FTLFasterThanLight Charlie the Mantis]], whose many kills stood as an unbeaten streak even as the game drew to a close.
* BigWhat: During his livestream of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' on [[NintendoHard Classic difficulty with Iron Man mode on]] he misses the alien with an 83% chance to hit. This is his reaction immediately followed by a [[BigNo Big "NO!"]]. [[http://www.twitch.tv/totalbiscuit/b/335049943 Jump to 15:13 if you'd like to see.]]
* BlasphemousBoast: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2Wdrr5ALnU TGS Podcast #39]].
-->'''TB''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny I have more Youtube money than GOD!]][[note]]Note: there actually is a youtube channel called GOD and TB does in fact have more youtube money than its owner[[/note]]
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Male Version. The 6th Podcast has [[OMFGcata Jesse]], TB and [[{{Yogscast}} Simon]] respectively, {{Badass Beard}}s and all.
* BrutalHonesty: Comes hand in hand with the CausticCritic trope, don't expect him to soften the blow when picking faults.
--> '''TB (Speaking about Q.U.B.E. - [[RageQuit a puzzle game]]):''' "A well designed game with a lot of thought behind it... but has honestly the character of your average plank of wood."
* BuffySpeak: Phsysicsy Style (From his WTF Is of Intrusion 2) "Is that even a word? It is now."
* TheCameo:
** As pointed out by TB and Jesse in their Q & A video together on OMFGCata, Simon (a Gnome) and Lewis (then named Zephir, a Night Elf) are literally ''right there'' when TB is accepting and recording the "Peacebloom vs Ghouls" quest, back in the days when the {{Yogscast}}, TotalBiscuit, and OMFGCata had a friendly rivalry uploading ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' content as quickly as they could.
** Simon (Honeydew) decides to finally add TotalBiscuit to his {{Steam}} friends list during one of his ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}'' livestreams.
** Another one where he cameos during the {{Yogscast}}'s Earth Defense Force Livestream (audio only as the video is game footage). Notable of reducing [[LetsPlay/YogscastSips Sips]] to a blithering fanboy.
---> '''Sips:''' Say my name. Oh please say my name!\\
'''TB:''' Um...\\
* TB chats for a while then leaves*\\
'''Sips:''' He probably thinks I'm a weird fanboy now...
** And now Lewis is a cute necromancer girl followed by 4 meatpatchworked monsters while TB is a furry with a charrzooka and stabby stabby daggers in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8-9VEvAmFg&t=28m GW2 beta]].
--->'''TB: '''Greetings Lewis, how are you today?
** In Tom Syndicate's 6th August Minecraft Project livestream, TB called him up on Skype after 15 minutes to help him with streaming lag issues.
* CatchPhrase: Numerous. Some of the most frequent ones seem to be more along the lines of a VerbalTic, in fact.
--> "Fire ze missiles!" \\
"I'm working on it." \\
"Yes indeed.." \\
"Sounds reasonable." \\
"That's problematic." \\
"Covered in [[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]]!"\\
"Yes, it is delicious!"\\
"My name is TotalBiscuit and I'm here to ask and answer one simple question... [[TitleDrop WTF is]] [[MadLibsCatchPhrase [insert game title here]]]?"\\
"By any stretch of the imagination"\\
"Free [[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]]! My favorite kind of [[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]]!"\\
"Big fan of that."\\
"Ah, ''bollocks''..."\\
"[[MadLibsCatchPhrase X]] is/are the worst thing/things in the world..."\\
"Death to you!"
---> "Death to the heathens!"
----> [[Music/{{Manowar}} "Death to those who play false metal!"]]
--> "Onwards, for great justice!"\\
"Let us rock and/or roll... whichever comes first."\\
"Lets kick it off, shall we?"\\
"Funny how that works."\\
"I can tell you that for a fact."\\
"...in any way, shape or form."\\
"Honestly" or "If I'm being totally honest."\\
"Wundabar!"\\
"For the good of the land!"\\
"Beta is Beta." or "Alpha is Alpha"\\
"At the end of the day..."\\
"Sit down!"\\
"...as much as Humanly (sometimes [[VideoGame/StarcraftII Zergly]]) possible\\
"...see what he can see..."\\
"...streaming across the map"\\
"Bit of a bugbear;..."\\
"Welcome to the Game Station Podcast where we occasionally talk about Videogames."\\
"...as a direct result..."\\
"I have more... [[BlasphemousBoast than god!]]"
* CatchPhraseInterruptus:
--> "Onward, for great (''*[[TheManyDeathsOfYou Meat Boy runs into buzzsaw]]*'') ...death"
** A game called VideoGame/NoTimeToExplain also does this to him a few times;
---> '''TB''': "Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Totalbiscuit and I'm here to as-- \\
'''PC''': [[DynamicEntry *Crashes into the room*]] "I am you from the future, there's no time to explain! Follow me to -- OH CHRIST!! WAAAAH!!" *giant claw grabs PC*\\
'''TB''': "What the Chr--? *{{Beat}}* My name is Totalb--" \\
'''PC, still in Claw''': "Use the arrow keys to move!! UAAHGH!!" \\
'''TB''': "[[{{Unpaused}} --iscuit...]] and I'm here... to ask and answer one simple question..."
** He also namechecks the trope during WTF is... Dustforce.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: During the Star Wars Kinect Dance Off and the 14th podcast, TB visibly drinks the least amount of Champagne among the three of them, but looks even more drunk than Jesse (downed his whole bottle [[note]]Or, well.. he did spill a lot of his and filled a colostomy bag with liquor, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfscLnagXDE see here]][[/note]], yet only acts slightly more silly than usual) and Dodger (almost finished her bottle and does not look drunk at all).
* CausticCritic: At times, but less often than the name "Cynical Brit" would suggest. He's actually quite fair, and often finds something to appreciate even in a game he doesn't like.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Upon going to Paris and witnessing the Eiffel Tower lit up, his reply is this:
--> '''TB:''' That is '''NOT''' energy efficient.
* CutenessProximity: He's not usually a victim of this, but then the Popori appeared. "[[TeraOnline IT'S A BEAVER]]!"
** That said, this trope is possibly parodied for the most part. There have been quite a few times where he said something that isn't stereotypically cute (like the skull in ''VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine'') being adorable.
** One instance of this happened during Easter Day where his twitter avatar became a cute rabbit, followed up by him [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEcYkZhlVlc linking to bunny videos on YouTube]] and posting random cute bunny pictures throughout the day. Subscribers and followers of his Twitter had a WildMassGuessing about whether he was momentarily possessed, drunk, sad, hungry for rabbit meat, {{Troll}}ing, if it was his wife, or if he had a soft spot for bunnies.
--->'''Subscriber''': Cynical Fleet currently experiencing bunnies, please try again later.
** If he can't acquire a guest host (or one of the regular hosts is unavailable) for the weekly [=TGS=] Podcast, he'll replace the spot in the overlay with either a still image or video of a cute animal, often one of his own pet chinchillas.
* DeadpanSnarker: While playing ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' with Lewis and Simon of the {{Yogscast}}.
** To be fair, he is this quite often, even outside of his videogaming.
*** Including when reading his own TV tropes pages: "Apparently I am a DeadpanSnarker"
* {{Determinator}}: He can be quite persistent in his efforts to complete a task set before him, be it by a game or by a person.
--> I'm not leaving until this is done! I don't care if this is a three-hour freaking video! It's gonna happen!
** [[spoiler:When it came to ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'', though...]]
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Has come out against the used game market in a May 2013 "Devil's Halibut" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G_f8YBy39M video]], accusing it of depriving developers of revenue in exchange for lining the pockets of greedy retailers like Game and [=GameStop=]. It was... [[InternetBackdraft controversial]], to say the least.
* DoubleTake: During his WTF is {{Darkspore}}.
--> "Hold stuff down and you get this combo, called the 'voltic slash' it's got a cooldown right there, two meter range... Two meter range? That's fairly impressive, quite the reach on that guy!"
%%
%% EarnYourHappyEnding is a series's ending trope, and cannot be applied to real life people.
%%
* EpicFail: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5a09JVXoxs&t=3m17s This Terraria video]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpR7U5hnwHE The end of this Hearthstone video applies as well.]]
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: During his multiplayer WTF of Section 8: Prejudice, he gets killed by an elevator slamming him into the edge of the door.
--> "Did I just get killed by an elevator? *{{Beat}}* I just git auhg-uhhug... Everything in this game is out to kill me! And is doing an exceptionally good job of it.
** Also during his Halloween playthrough of ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'':
---> "Nothing is bloody safe in this game!"
* EvilLaugh: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_yJiOD7qJ8&t=21m36s Just listen to that laugh!]]
** [[FaceHeelTurn DarkHalibut]] gets a pretty good, hammy "super-villain" one in the beginning of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UVnOxeYl8A this]] video.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm3qOAt7GgU&&t=26m11s Now with added intimidating echo!]]
** Then he started playing Dungeon Land with Jesse, Dodger, and Genna. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVNS38h9k5U With TB as the dungeon master.]] [[HilarityEnsues You can probably guess what happens.]]
* ExpansionPackPast: To date, he has been recorded saying that he has been a drummer, singer, game store clerk, economic consultant, radio caster, and game commentator.
* FlatWhat: TB's reaction to Jesse's revelation in ''Terraria'' that their fans have made GenderFlip slashfic.
** During Dungeonland, Jesse's given pause when TB introduces his EliteMook.
---> '''Jeese''': The... dire...duck?\\
'''TB''': *Matter of factly* The dire duck.
* GagDub: The Cynical Redub series of videos, which riff video game conferences. The description even says it was inspired by other AbridgedSeries, though it currently doesn't fit the description of the trope.
* GodwinsLaw: Played straight and {{lampshaded}} in his Mailbox for February 15, 2012:
-->''You want hate? You see what the Nazis did, that's hate! [[LampshadeHanging Yes I brought the Nazis in]].'' --TotalBiscuit, disagreeing with the term "hater" to describe someone who strongly dislikes a game.
* GoneHorriblyRight: His ''WTF'' is of ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden''. He made it intending it to be a [[StealthParody parody]] of "rageplayers" on Youtube who overreact to everything, getting outraged over the smallest things and throwing in plenty of {{Out Of Character Moment}}s in order to emphasise this. Unfortunately, he managed to do a rage video a bit ''too'' well and created a genuinely funny video. Naturally, most people didn't get the joke.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: A portion of his humor, especially in the ''Terraria'' LP.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The trope name was actually name dropped in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Teb0vJ3qXQk March 21, 2012 Mailbox.]]
** [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist by his own vocabulary]] during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKxeyTC0Ukk&t=14m48s this]] Terraria episode, you're welcome world.
* HypocriticalHumor: Emphasis on humor. He has a personal disdain of [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] because he finds them devoid of creativity, but his [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] with the {{Yogscast}} and [[OMFGCata Jesse]] are some of his most popular and hilarious videos.
* InsistentTerminology:
** [[RunningGag He doesn't do reviews -- he does FIRST IMPRESSIONS.]]
** The ''Terraria'' LP with Jesse is not a Let's Play, it's a [[RunningGag talk show]]. There's even a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRAJeEBGECw video]] to prove this.
** More of a pronunciation insistence but he has stated on numerous occasions that the British way of saying 'issues' (ISS-yews) is much better than the American way (ISH-ews)
* [[ItsPronouncedTroPAY It's Pronounced]] [[DynastyWarriors Dee-Nah-Stee Warriors,]] [[ShinMegamiTensei Shin Meh-Goo-Me Ten-See,]] [[ProjectXZone Project Ex Zone,]] [[ItsPronouncedTroPAY Etc.]]: though the last one is mostly to troll people who take proper pronunciation too seriously
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: In Episode 39 of their Terraria series, TB and Jesse decide to make some Spelunker potions to help with finding the new ores to make better equipment. They head out to find Moonglow, which is one of the ingredients, and continue to search for it throughout episodes 40-42. They return with only 2 Moonglow and one Moonglow seed, and when Jesse opens one of the chests to find clay to make a pot...
--> '''Jesse:''' Uh, we have a chest full of- ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? There's a chest filled with 5 Moonglow!
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He can be a bit of a jerk sometimes, but his criticisms are all well meaning, and he does do work that's completely for charity.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: How an innocent fishing boat turns into a boat full of Satan's diseased orphan spawn.
* JumpScare: Encounters one with [[SpeakOfTheDevil impeccable timing]] in "An Early Look At ''Outlast''".
--> '''TB:'''If you blow your load too quickly with jump scares-(Opens the door, cue ScareChord) '''''AAHH'', JESUS CHRIST!'''
* KnightInSourArmor: TB can be extremely bitter and realistic about the motives of publishers, developers, even gamers, and always points out the flaws in the industry....but it is very clear that he utterly loves his job, and believes Gaming will continue to be a hugely beneficial medium.
* LargeHam: He tends to seemingly overreact to certain things.
--> ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy "I FEEL EVERY DEATH IN THE HEART OF MY ]]'' '''''SOUL'''''"\\
"Oh, you have a [[VideoGame/StarcraftII viking]], uh, that's adorable... ''[[WavemotionGun YAMATO CANNON]]!!!'' BOOM!! [[CaptainObvious You don't have a viking anymore]]."
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuxPVa4OnQ8 The Ballad of TotalBiscuit]], also available in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWqzfLpKe5M shortened version]], played during the ending of most of his videos. He originally used [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean He's a Pirate]], until he was asked not to for copyright issues. The artist then made the ballad using a similar melody.
** FanNickname: There is an ongoing petition to rename the song ''Monocle (and/or) Top Hat of Destiny''.
* IaijutsuPractitioner: Has a training sword in real life dedicated to this, according to the 45th TGS podcast.
* LiteralistSnarking: Along with DeadpanSnarker, usually towards some stupid question already answered by him.
--> '''Guy on twitter, having missed TB's announcements about the assembly in Finland''': What's in Finland?\\
'''TB''': Finns.
* MadnessMantra: During his WTF is of LoneSurvivor.
-->'''TB:''' There was no jazz at all! [[ItMakesSenseInContext NO JAZZ AT ALL!]]
* TheMeanBrit
* MindScrew: He starts thinking this near the end of ''VideoGame/ThirtyFlightsOfLoving''. Although he feels there's some sort of significance to everything, he feels as if he's too stupid to get it.
* MissingEpisode: The three lost ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' videos. All of them had the videos lost (the second and third by accidental deletion on TB's part) but the audio saved, and TB has released the second and third lost episodes (meant to be before episode 32) as an [[http://www.cynicalbrit.com/audio/terraria_lostepisodes.mp3 audio podcast]]. The first one, meant to be before episode 13, has not been released, though.
** TotalBiscuit has said in an AMA on Reddit that the file for Episode 13 was "[[http://www.reddit.com/r/Cynicalbrit/comments/10o4x5/i_am_totalbiscuit_i_make_videos_on_the_internet/c6f7aky?context=3 completely fucked]]" and therefore was never released.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um_rftrTNcs Behold, Cranky Cat! Too good for Greenlight!]]
* NauseaFuel: Invoked. He gets motion sickness from playing ''Datajammers: Fast Forward''.
** See also "WTF Is...VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac". He says several times that the game, while fun and very well-made, is absolutely disturbing and disgusting.
* NeedsMoreLove: Invoked. He thought ''[[{{Section8}} Section 8: Prejudice]]'' was becoming so massively underrated that he decided to feature it a second time.
** To the point where he created an entire series based on the concept, called "This is why we can't have nice things."
* NiceHat: Why yes he does own a top hat in RealLife, and if there is a top hat to be obtained in a game he'll make it one of his top priorities to get it.
** He owns a variety of other hats. A running gag on [=TGS=] Podcast is that every episode he wears a different hat, either sent in by a fan or self-purchased.
** [[BaldOfAwesome (Nearly) Bald of Awesome]]: The reason for his extensive hat collection is because of his very stressful casting life along with complications in his personal life (See his Crowning Moment of Heartwarming page for details)and the fact that baldness runs in his family, his hair started thinning out. To hide this, if he can he will wear a hat. Although, without a hat on and his usual attire when casting ([[BadassInANiceSuit a suit and tie]]) as shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rwX-Wutn0U here]], he has been commented on to look like a [[TheDon Mafia Boss]].
* OneOfUs:
** He mentions Tvtropes on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu_TiBM6SkY the first episode]] of the [[Creator/{{Polaris}} GameStation]] podcast, as well as dropping trope names in other videos, including the second episode of aforementioned podcast.
** He's also a registered Troper, mentioning that he reads TV Tropes quite a bit in the Febuary 15th, 2012 Mailbox and references his page ([[AndZoidberg as well as]] OMFGCata's.)
** The [[RuleOfThree third time]] is during the 14th podcast, where he rather proudly declares himself a SnarkKnight.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: [[invoked]] Averted, he thoroughly enjoys doing his work (The FanDumb that comes with it, not so much), and is not above doing charity work and donating to charity. Of course he has to earn a living from his work, but money is not the primary motivator.
--> TB (speaking of money he earned): ''"As regards to the money I don't really care, so I went and bought'' [[http://www.justgiving.com/yogscast a goat]]."
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: One of his catch phrases is to call a game "The Premier [*insert short, few word description pertaining to one aspect of the game*] Simulator."
* {{Podcast}}:
** Has done numerous "classic" radio shows and podcasts; the most notable one, also discontinued shortly after quitting ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', was "Blue Plz".
** One of the regular hosts of "The Co-Optional Podcast" (formerly "The Game Station Podcast") alongside [[OMFGCata Jesse Cox]] and [[PressHeartToContinue Dodger.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: At the end of his video ''WTF is [=GLaDoS=] doing in The Ball?'', after having struggled with a simple ball-based physics puzzle and (finally) passing it:
--> ''I am the master [[DoubleEntendre of my own balls!]]'' (sees a ball-required pressure pad) ''Bollocks.''
** In fact, pretty much any use of profanity on TB's part (outside videos containing "spur-of-the-moment" reactions such as his Hallowe'en special on Amnesia: The Dark Descent or daily [=VoDs=] of his raw I Suck At Starcraft stream) - due to its irregularity, even despite his tendency to rant/be cynical - could be considered one of these.
** Subverted in his ''Super VideoGame/MeatBoy'' video:
---> '''TB''': You have ''any'' idea how difficult it is (''*[[TheManyDeathsOfYou Meat Boy runs into buzzsaw]]*'') to resist the urge to say ''FFFFFFFFFF'''''''AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!'''''
** He outright stated during a ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' livestream that it wouldn't be going up on his Website/YouTube channel ''because'' he was swearing so much. It would go against his personal expectations when it comes to the quality of his videos.
** His first death in ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden'' produces one of these, and a subsequent death provokes a, "SON OF A BITCH!".
* PungeonMaster: Quite literally in the Dungeonland videos.
* RealMenWearPink: He mentions tea parties in his WTF is... of VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac (though it was most likely a joke based on the situation).
** He also mentioned RobotUnicornAttack in his WTF is... of Who's That Flying.
** He also has a tendency to make some of his character avatars (special mention to his [[Franchise/MassEffect Krogan]] from the ''Mass Effect 3'' Multiplayer) wear mostly or completely pink. If not pink, some other ridiculous color.
* RousingSpeech: He's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8JeYIWQgrE surprisingly good]] speaker.
* RunningGag: Numerous.
** TotalBiscuit's and Jesse's ineptitude with explosives in their ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' LetsPlay.
** Earlier, he Simon and Lewis had issues with explosives (a spell combination Simon discovered, which they began calling "ARSE Mines" after the keys needed to cast it) in their VideoGame/{{Magicka}} series with the {{Yogscast}}.
** There's also the completely unrelated matter of TB describing games he plays as simulators:
--->''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'': The premier mage suicide simulator!\\
''Videogame/NitronicRush'': The premier car breakdancing simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Limbo}}'': The premier get-stabbed-by-shadowy-spider simulator!\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cxM5UIsAnE Envirobear2000]]'': The premier bear driving simulator!\\
''VideoGame/OrcsMustDie'': The premier orc stabbing and trap placing simulator!\\
''VideoGame/{{Journey}}'': The premier cloth flying simulator!\\
''Videogame/ZenoClash'': a punch-alien-bird-men in the face simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{The War Z}}'': The premier being-killed-by-a-floating-rucksack simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Dear Esther}}'': The premier Hold-W simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Shelter}}'': The premier badger survival simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{The Last Of Us}}'': The premier tragic walking simulator!\\
''Videogame/{{Antichamber}}'': The premier brain melting out your ears simulator!\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjpStRyKI2c Go Home Dinosaurs]]'': The world's premiere BBQ defense simulator[[note]]An AscendedMeme: it was the developers, not TotalBiscuit, who coined the phrase. When pressed on it, they replied that it was because they watched his videos.[[/note]]
** A Meta-example: Whenever a Website/YouTube Video receives recognition from TB (via a Like or share on his channel), expect one of the top liked comments to be some variation of "The Cynical Fleet has Arrived" because of the legion of TB fans watching the video.
*** This originated from TB's tendency of 1-base Battlecruiser-rushing on ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' before he switched to Zerg: It got popular enough for the subscriber icons in chat to be Battlecruisers, the subscribers to be named the Cynical Fleet, and the cruisers themselves to be renamed "Biscuitcruisers".
*** A variation of this is "A TotalBiscuit army is approaching from the west!", derived from the Terraria in-game message 'A goblin army is approaching from the west/east!'
** TotalBiscuit pronouncing M. Night Shyamalan as Shyamalalalal.
* SarcasmMode: Absolutely overloaded during his video ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um_rftrTNcs "Behold Cranky Cat, too good for Greenlight"]]''... With a rather strange twist that turns it into... Something else altogether... It's easier to just watch the video and watch the magic unfold before your eyes, than trying to explain it.
* ScheduleSlip: In regards to his ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' co-op with the {{Yogscast}}; the three had increasingly busy schedules starting after Part 8, and Part 14, a 40+ minute episode, had audio issues that TotalBiscuit still hadn't edited out yet when it was released ''two months'' after recording.
** This happened with his Terraria series, although that's due to a combination of a very busy schedule and complete apathy to continue the series.
* SelfDeprecation: If his video on his role in ''{{VideoGame/Awesomenauts}}'' is any indication, he doesn't seem to have all that much confidence in the lines he recorded for the game, or whether or not he thought he was the best choice for the character.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T75aLLbODk The Top 5 Worst videos I made in 2012.]]
-->'''TB''': I present to you the top 5 worst pieces of shit that I put on my channel in 2012, because good lord, there have been a lot of bad videos.
** In the Game Station podcast, while talking with [[HundredPercentCompletion Gerard the Completionist]], he did some good-natured ribbing on his own tendency to look at options menus first during WTF Is? (and FOV sliders in particular) by coming up with a hypothetical Let's Play channel called "TB Doesn't Complete It" ("the worst LP channel on the entire Internet"). It consists entirely of him looking at the options menu, fiddling with the FOV slider (or complaining if it isn't there) and then ending the video.
* {{Spoonerism}}: Mentioned by name in his WTF is... video for Dustforce.
* {{Squee}}: Oh, so ''very'' much during his video ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb50aAFiOpM WTF is Warhammer 40k: Space Marine?]]''
** During his WTF Is... Magicka video, half of the video is explaining why the game is so good, and the other half is Totalbiscuit enacting the lighter counterpart of {{angrish}}.
---> '''TB:''' ''You can actually [[ViolationOfCommonSense set yourself on fire]]!''
* {{Straight Man|AndWiseGuy}}: To [[OMFGCata Jesse Cox]]'s [[StraightManAndWiseGuy Wise Guy]], when paired up in projects such as ''DCUniverseOnline'' and ''Videogame/{{Terraria}}''.
** Hell, he's pretty much the [[StraightManAndWiseGuy Straight Man]] to the entire Game Station. Which says a lot about the Game Station.
** He [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] it himself in the Terraria series.
--->'''TB:''' "You're the funny guy, I'm the straight guy, start singing, dammit!"\\
'''Jesse:''' "I dunno if I'd call you the straight guy! '''HEY-O!'''"\\
'''TB:''' ''*Disgusted Sigh*''
* TheSnarkKnight: He appears to have a worldly disdain for anything and anyone around him, including some of his closest e-friends...
** ...To the point where he clearly reacts positively when the trope itself is referenced in relation to him during the 14th TGS Podcast.
* SophisticatedAsHell: TotalBiscuit's response to [[PressHeartToContinue Dodger]] challenging him to 'bring it' during [[Creator/{{Polaris}} TheGameStation]]'s BloodBowl league:
-->'''TB:''' "There is a statistical likelihood that I can 'bring it'. But there are certain inherent risks within the 'bringing it'. So I have to carefully consider the consequences of 'bringing it'. The conclusion so far is that it may be worthwhile to 'bring it.'"
* StealthParody: He has clarified that his ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy Gaiden'''s video was a {{satire|ParodyPastiche}}, and that it included lots of fake rage and {{Out of Character Moment}}s in order to hint people about the true nature of the video. But much to his chagrin, no one understood the true joke, mostly because it was a genuinely funny video. The fact that he denied it halfway through with his, "No, this game is PAIN" quote didn't help.
* StockholmSyndrome: Brings this up whenever referring to the [[FanDumb overly-defensive]] fanboys of ''The War Z'', particularly when said defensiveness is juxtaposed around the...questionable approach to the game's release and advertising.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: More like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j190cYqxD_w Awesome Statements' Dance Mix]], though...brought to you by the same man who made OMFGCata's.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiHcLEXmMO0 And now with one of his podcasts.]]
* [[TheSpock Superego]]: In a FreudianTrio with Lewis's [[TheKirk ego]] and Simon's [[TheMcCoy id]] in the ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2'' videos.
* ThatOneLevel: Discussed in-universe with [[spoiler: the entirety of]] "WTF Is ''Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters''". The second level involves making risky low-level bombing runs in an extremely hilly area, without passing over [[FakeDifficulty a radar ceiling that ends the mission instantly]]. [[spoiler: He spends the entire episode trying to get past this level.]]
* TotallyRadical: Occasionally attempts this ironically, with [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy predictable results.]]
-->'''TB:''' Yo yo! The west side! Lemme - lemme spit for ya... and such.
-->'''Jesse:''' That... that is... no. No. Never - on behalf of the world, no. Don't spit for us.
* TranquilFury: Used in his video about the school shootings in America in late 2012. He also gave the media a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech for focusing not on the victims, but on the shooter, even if it makes ''no damn sense to when the victims were children''.
* {{Troll}}: Towards Simon of the {{Yogscast}} in ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' and to a lesser extent ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 2''.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: {{Discussed}} in-universe when playing ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' and ''DearEsther''.
* VerbalTic: Overlaps with {{Angrish}}. His version of distinct from others. It sounds like a weird combination of a squeak, squawk and screech.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Initially thinks the Mechanic in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'' is male. [[invoked]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Jesse Cox of OMFGCata, though he admits that it's a bit played up. A bit, but not very much: he still hates Jesse. Even in front of their TGS associates.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FYEo_FUK2w Now in song form...]]
** He gets along pretty well with Lewis of the {{Yogscast}}. Simon? Not so much. [[FridgeBrilliance Maybe it's because Simon is too similar to Jesse in both looks and actions...]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: Or more to the point, ''[[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why did it have to be puzzle games (or any game that requires puzzle-solving skills)]]''?? TB is Dyspraxic, which according to a comment, ''is a motor learning difficulty that can affect planning of movements and coordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body'', which means it takes TB around twice as long to solve puzzles as someone who doesn't have this.
** Despite this, he seems to really like Super ''VideoGame/MeatBoy'', which is hard enough already for a person without dyspraxia!
* WeSellEverything: {{Discussed}} and basically ranted about in Part 4 of his ''VideoGame/KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JITD7sbVWU&t=4m37s livestream]].
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: When Wowcrendor's skink player [[PintsizedPowerhouse "Lil Skittles"]] became very famous in the TGS Blood Bowl league, TB named his bull centaur "Big Skittles" upon buying him.
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings:
** [[invoked]] Will never ''ever'' post a ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' video due to the FanDumb: According to TB, once you go ''Minecraft'', you never go back because of never ending fan demand. Funny enough, his wife, Intricacy, had her first Cynical Brit Community News video with ''Minecraft'' in the background, even lampshading how she's going against TB's "no ''Minecraft''" rule.
** Ditto for ''VideoGame/HeroesOfNewerth''. TB isn't going to cover it mostly because the community is so horrible, but especially because, when he'd done his first ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' video, he received a massive amount of hatemail from ''Heroes'' players insulting him and demanding him to cover their superior game instead. Yeah. Not too hard to believe.
** TB no longer reads the Website/YouTube comments in his videos because of the sheer amount of stupidity that resides there. He used to read them, but blocked them on his personal computer after his doctor told him they had ''given him stress-related illness''. Now, his volunteer mods and his wife read them for him and relay the best and most frequent comments. Whenever he does occasionally read and respond to comments, it is like seeing chum thrown into a shark pool.
** At this stage, the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' community is nearing this point as well, as despite having stated on several occasions that he will not do ''Skyrim'' content (because he wouldn't be able to live up to the standard for content on his page (as well, he's outright stated that he just doesn't like Skyrim, so that's probably why), and also because everyone and their mother is doing it), he still gets tweets, Facebook messages and Website/YouTube comments on whether or not he will do a ''WTF is... Skyrim''.
** It's gotten to the point where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zqSnlzXcGU he has made a video solely to explain why he doesn't take requests.]] He called out a commenter for accusing him of being a jerk just because he stated, in a neutral tone, "I don't do requests". His explanation basically boils down to the fact that taking requests results in going straight down a slippery slope, would make it harder for him to do his job, and would just be a massive disservice to his viewers. Sadly, it's inevitable that some people will not get the point.
** No longer does giveaways thanks to massive bile from a particularly vocal minority amongst the non-North Armerican viewerbase over a graphics card giveaway. Why were they angry? Because the giveaway was limited to North America due to contest laws varying wildly outside it and massive shipping costs across continents, which could very easilly have gone up to $1000. Once again, a case of a few bad apples spoiling the rest of the basket.
*** Some exceptions are made, usually where shipping is not an issue (i.e. giving away Steam keys for titles, such as ''VideoGame/RetroCityRampage''.)
** And now he's disabled the voting feature on Youtube's comments on all his videos.
* WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings: Has an irregular show called this, and in a sense it fits the description of the trope: The show focuses on good and memorable games that didn't sell all that well because of either bad rep by review sites or questionable decisions by the developer. Like his "WTF is", this sometimes leads to a massive sales increase for a short while after.
* WhyWontYouDie: Says this word for word after trying (and failing) several times to kill Lil' Skittles during the final match of the TGS Blood Bowl tournament.
* WorstAid: I'm sure you can [[{{Scribblenauts}} perform surgery]] with an [[AxeCrazy axe, right?]]
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Uses the term "8-bit" to describe any game with {{Retreaux}} graphics, despite the fact that most of them are actually representative of 16 and 32-bit systems.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: If you estimate using his voice and the way he looks without his NiceHat on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0X9aGdI2-Gc here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp4SQVkkZ0Q here]], it's easy to forget that he's 28 and actually younger than [[{{Yogscast}} Simon Lane (34), Lewis Brindley (29)]] and [[OMFGCata Jesse Cox (30)]].

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: During "WTF Is...''VideoGame/DutyCalls''," he's clearly pissed that it was made in place of a proper demo for the PC version of ''VideoGame/BulletStorm'', yet can't help but laugh at it from beginning to end.

* CantHoldHisLiquor: During the Star Wars Kinect Dance Off and the 14th podcast, TB visibly drinks the least amount of Champagne among the three of them, but looks even more drunk than Jesse (downed his whole bottle [[hottip:*: Or, well.. he did spill a lot of his and filled a colostomy bag with liquor see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfscLnagXDE]], yet only acts slightly more silly than usual) and Dodger (almost finished her bottle and does not look drunk at all).
