Cause I'm not fond of my older stuff
!!! 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. ---- !!! Other

{{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).

!!! 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. ----

Eh... Not comfortable with something like that, thinking about it.
* Ben10AlienForce: Despite hating the show, I ''have'' mostly watched it through, I just think the show would have been better had they tried to connect the series a lot more coherently, or at the very least, created a different show with a similar concept. Other than that, I ''do'' like the show [[hottip:* : [[{{LampshadeHanging}} Wow, talk about contradictory...]]]], it's just the concept could have been played better.
