Added DiffLines:

!!! Facts I like to think are interesting about myself.
* I love superheroes, robots, and the horror genre.
** Favorite horror movies are ''Film/TheFrighteners'' and ''Film/EvilDead2''.
** I will get back to you on superheroes.
* Thought that games like ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'', ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'', and ''{{VideoGame/Undertale}}'' [[ItWillNeverCatchOn wouldn't be well-loved or get as much attention as they got]] (I own at least two of the games cited now, and am waiting for a Steam sale for ''Shovel Knight'').
** This has even extended to pretty commercial games like ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'', due to wondering how a Point and Click zombie game could work.
* I thought it'd be interesting to write this instead of just simply "trope" my interests. Which I've kinda done before, but I don't like to talk about that.
* I would like to get into writing at some point, and am on/off working on an ''RPGMaker VX Ace'' game.
* I enjoy anime, because I am a weeb.
* I tried to avoid putting any self-deprecation on this list because I think people get sick of that pretty quickly.

!!! Liked Tropes

* AntiVillain
* CompleteMonster: To the point that, if he ever writes an original work (Not a fanfic), the main villain will pretty much be one, with a hint of small irony...
** Somewhat distasteful to this trope, nowadays, because of most having flat characterization.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Because I like smart villains.
* DoctorWho: CURSE YOU {{Tropers/SHININGKNIGHT}}! CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURSE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU
* EldritchAbomination
* EvilCounterpart: Because fights with these guys tend to be some of the best in a series.
* {{Heroman}}
* IrregularWebcomic: I'm a fan of the comic, while the science interests me, I actually ''do'' like the bad puns the comic does. Also, Draak, he's one of my favorite characters.
* LegoCrossoverGame: GuiltyPleasures... They're '''''Lego''''' Games! They're incredibly fun! But they really need to release the ''Lego Batman'' sequel already!
* MegaMan: ...Do I have to explain?
* MoralEventHorizon: Can't explain it, I guess I like seeing how a villain can truly cross the line.
* MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic: Yes.
* NightmareFuel: Usually when it's unintentional, it's rare for me to like HighOctaneNightmareFuel, but when I do, I do.
* TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword: It's become my forthmost example of my favorite ''Zelda'' game, though the motion controls are a bit annoying. It's along the lines of ''Wind Waker'' in how good it is to me. Oh, and [[CreepyAwesome Ghirahim]].
* PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt: I think it's Ironic or weird when you look at my ''other'' interests.
* PlanetEris: So many different possibilities.
* TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles: Everybody pretty much knows this, as you see me very frequently go on rants about the show.
* AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes
* FromNobodyToNightmare
* KnightOfCerebus: Just a fascinating trope, to me.
* {{FLCL}}
* [[{{Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica}} That one anime with the incredibly hard to spell name.]]: [[JustHereForGodzilla I only really watched it to see the designs of the Witches]], due to finding their visual designs and quirks impressive and interesting.

!!! Disliked Tropes:

* DownloadableContent
* ''TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'': Now, the game is ''good'', but I don't like because it was created to appease an UnpleasableFanbase that wanted ''Ocarina Of Time'' on steroids.
* UnpleasableFanbase
* NostalgiaFilter: Because the people who speak crap about the newer generations constantly insist that they had everything better, ''always completely ignoring that their generation had some incredibly bad crap too''.
* ViewersAreMorons: ...Do I ''need'' to explain this?
* AuthorFilibuster[=/=]WriterOnBoard: Because it essentially uses a character as a mouthpiece, ''regardless of consistency or characterization''. [[HypocrisyNod And I am fully aware I'm doing it right now]].
* BreakingTheFourthWall: For particular reasons, but the main reason I hate this trope is that they sometimes play the fact of being ''aware'' they're in a fictional work too much to the point it gets stale, and awareness of being in a work is not inherently funny.
* {{Fanservice}}: Mostly when it's obnoxious.
* AwesomeMoments: Only in certain situations, where it's pretty clear that it's pretentious and doesn't do anything but help the ego of whoever is doing the moment, that said, I like it in fiction where the character ''isn't'' a blatantly controlled AuthorAvatar or is attempted to be proven better than everyone.
* {{Hypocrisy}}: [[HypocrisyNod My issues aside]], I ''really'' hate Hypocrisy, and will make sure to point out Hypocritical actions when I think I see 'em.
* SelfDeprecation: Potshots at yourself and awarity of your problems don't fix the problems at hand. [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped I am dead fucking serious about this]].
* '''''RevengeOfTheFallen''''': Possibly the worst film I have ever seen. About the only part I ''liked'' in the film was:
--> Optimus Prime: You'll ''never'' stop at one!
--> (Turns his ''other'' arm into another sword, and charges Megatron, Grindor, and Starscream)
--> Optimus Prime: [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome I'll take you ALL on!]]
** Liked ''DarkOfTheMoon'', however.
* {{Capcom}}: Not just for cancelling the third ''MegaManLegends'' installment, but for constantly [[CapcomSequelStagnation releasing rerelease after rerelease, or sequels that are barely different from the game before]]. I was generally fanatical and willing to ignore their faults until ''Legends 3'' was canceled.
* BENDrowned: Mostly because I'm getting really sick of "You shouldn't have done that..." being used many, many times.

{{Etheru}} is a troper, desires a bit too much attention, but knows the world doesn't revolve around him.

Creator of the {{Smashtasm}} page, but other people contributed, showing he isn't that good at finding Tropes for some things (Other Tropers contributed, not Etheru).

Prone to [[ApologizesALot apologizing]] and ranting. Sometimes both.

[[SelfDeprecation Kind of an asshole.]]

!!! Tropes Associated with Etheru.
* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: I just play games to have fun, not to [[{{ToBeAMaster}} be the best of every single gamer in the world]] or [[{{StopHavingFunGuys}} be an asshole about Gamebreakers and competitiveness]], I just want to play a game, beating it if I feel like it.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: I tend to interpret myself in different, usually self-deprecatory manners.
* [[{{ApologisesALot}} Apologises Way Too Much]]: ...Sorry.
* AuthorAppeal: Loves Magic, Science, and the RuleOfCool in one setting.
** Also ''adores'' robots.
* BerserkButton: ''If you have a criticism'', '''''tell me'''''. I hate when people don't tell me certain things until it's at a boiling point, it pisses me off and makes it feel like nobody is being honest with me.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: I set up a bunch of redundant/bad threads several times when I was a troper for the first time. I'm more or less infrequent on the fora nowadays.
* CloudCuckoolander: When I want to be.
* {{Crossplayer}}: In Roleplaying games and video games, if there's an option to play as a lady, I'm going to play as them.
* FanDumb: I try to avoid this. It varies.
* GrammarNazi: Ironically, [[RougeAnglesOfSatin I tend to make many mistakes with "its" and "it's"]], and so on. Otherwise, I'm ''very'' picky about spelling and formatting.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Has happened a few times. [[OldShame Don't wish to be reminded of it.]]
* MemeticMutation: Due to bad wording, "Chicken Trees" is sort of a meme.
* NeverLiveItDown: Ignoring my various issues, I usually don't forget particularly bad moments from some other people.
* NightmareFetishist
** I do admit that ''StoryOfTheBlanks'' was one of the first games I lost sleep over, though. I have made it my goal to never check out ''Friendship Is Magic'' Creepypasta again. [[spoiler: I've failed. Repeatedly]].
* OldShame: Lots of things. From old habits to volatile and/or stupid behavior.
* ProudToBeAGeek: Played Straight and Averted, [[ZigZaggedTrope at the same time]].
* RunningGag: My obsession with the MegaMan series, [[LampshadeHanging so expect a joke or two to be made about my obsession]].
* SelfDeprecation: [[ZigZaggedTrope I seem to not be able to decide whether or not I hate myself]]. I do try not to take it to obnoxious, painful levels, though.
* ShownTheirWork: Despite the fact that I sometimes have a research failure, I at least try to show my work when it comes to fiction.
** Also, ask me about the [[VideoGame/MegaMan classic Mega Man series]], I'll probably give a semi-accurate answer.
* SingleIssueWonk: Numerous.
