** When stuck in a video game or if I can't find which way I'm supposed to go, I'll often sing "Where do we go from here?", a line from "Infinity" by Music/{{Stratovarius}}, my favourite band.

** "Welcome to the fantasy zone! Get ready!" when psyching myself up for something (as a kind of "Let's do this!" or "Here we go!") thing. It usually results in me failing embarrassingly at it. Doubles as a ShoutOut (to ''VideoGame/SpaceHarrier'').
** "Hmmm... That's a wonderful idea!" (sometimes without the "Hmmm..."), whenever someone offers me something that I really like (such as going out to eat or something). Essentially, it means "I willingly and enthusiastically accept your offer." I also use it when I actually get a really good idea. (And yes, it comes from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', which itself got it from ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'').
** Conversely, "This is a terrible/really bad idea", usually when I'm doing something which I enjoy but which I know is going to negatively impact me (such as going out to eat when I have very little money).
** I also have a habit of using a negative where you'd normally expect a positive, for example, "



* GratuitousJapanese - And pretty much every other language in existence. I pepper my sentences liberally with French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, German, Japanese and even Irish Gaelic words and phrases, both in RealLife and online. Specifically, I used to greet people in either Spanish or Italian, always. (Nowadays, it's usually either Finnish - "Hei", "Moi", "Moikka" and "Morjes" have all been used - or a cat noise that I usually type as "Prra" online (it's the sound cats make when greeting people, often called a "greeting meow" for that reason, somewhere halfway between a purr and a meow).) And recently, Finnish (living in Finland for a few years will do that) and Swedish have been added to the mix.

* SigningOffCatchPhrase - I end my YouTube videos with "Take care, love and peace".

to:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness - You can tell I'm genuinely upset (or angry) if I start swearing in English (usually it's either Finnish or Japanese, or just a string of random angry-sounding syllables that I transcribe as *curses in an ancient language* in text chat).
* SigningOffCatchPhrase - I end my YouTube videos with "Take care, love and peace". Same with my online radio show.



* VerbalTic: "Saa..." has become this for me recently. I tend to start most of my sentences with it. I also say "But anyway" or "But yeah" way more than most people do. I have others too, like "No?" (Finnish sound roughly equivalent to "Huh?") when someone wants my attention, "Uwa..." as a noise denoting surprise or interest, and saying "on the" instead of "in the" (like "What on the hell?" and similar phrases).

Oh, and "Twilight Lord" is a name, not a title. It's the name of one of my RP characters, and it actually is [[AwesomeMcCoolName his real name]]. So shortening it to "Twilight" is fine. And by the way, I didn't get it from [[Literature/{{Twilight}} that horrible crime against fiction]], I had it long before that was ever invented. And no, [[WhatAreTheContributorsRealNames you're not gonna know my real name]].

* AllLowercaseLetters - I write my name like this nowadays, spelling it as "twilight" as opposed to "Twilight", and encourage others to do the same.

* CatchPhrase: "It's like, what/why?" when annoyed at something (or when I just don't understand/can't figure something out).
** When I beat a boss in a video game, especially if I win by CurbStompBattle, I tend to blow a kiss and say "Bye-bye!". For harder bosses, I usually say "Go down!".
** I say "I'm dead" or "I'm so dead" a lot when doing badly in a game, or "I'm (so) gonna die".
** After screwing something up multiple times, I'll usually say "I'll get it eventually, I promise..." or "Okay, this time" (usually followed by me failing again).
** When I do something without meaning to or without knowing that that was the right way to do it, I usually say "Ooh, I'm accidentally good!", borrowing from something Arin said once on ''WebVideo/GameGrumps''.
** "Well, you can do it that way too if you really want", usually used after someone shows me a much better way of doing something than I'd been using previously.
** "I am a cat, after all". Used to explain whenever I do something cat-like (this is more often used online than in RealLife).
** "One more try and no more cry!" when psyching myself up for one more attempt at something. It comes from the song "Precious Time, Glory Days" by Psychic Lover, if you were wondering.
** I start all of my YouTube LetsPlay videos with "Hello, dear my boys and girls, and welcome (back) to (name of game)". For the non-gaming videos, I tend to open with "What up, peoples of IRC and elsewhere, this is [=UndefeatableTwilight=]", sometimes followed with "calling" or "calling once again", though not always.

* LarynxDissonance - Despite identifying as female, I keep my naturally deep, masculine voice, which can make things confusing for people. Though I do occasionally slip into a more feminine voice too, it's usually a semi-conscious thing and depends on my mood.



** TheQuietOne - I often seem like this, but I can be quite talkative if someone gives me the right subjects (video games and anime are good ones to start with. [[KingdomOfLoathing With which to start]].

* [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Department of Redundancy Department]] - I don't actually do this, but I get annoyed at people who say things like "RPG game" and "PIN number". Role Playing Game game? Personal Identification Number number?

* LiteralSplitPersonality: I become this online. My personality gets split up into several different "characters" that all take turns at saying things and even interact with each other on occasion. It's kind of half-roleplaying, half-DID.



* [[TalkingToHimself Talking to Himself]] - Even though the trope's about two different characters in the same show played by the same voice actor and not actually about talking to yourself, I don't know one that is and I do talk out loud to myself a LOT.

* [[DudeLooksLikeALady Dude Looks Like a Lady]] - I try to avert this with my beard, but I still sometimes get mistaken for a girl from behind. Though now I have short hair, it doesn't really happen as much.

For example, when playing [[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime Star Ocean: Till the End of Time]], I referred to the Anti-Attack Auras as [[NeonGenesisEvangelion AT Fields]] because I couldn't remember their original name. I still call them that even now.
