Jon "Creator/ChaosD1" Burkhardt takes a look at the games, shows, or items that he enjoys enough to tell others about. Be it a sarcastic remark, a sincere statement, or an ear piercing yell, he's sure to get his point across. He has a show called ''MMO Grinder'' which reviews free-to-play {{MMORPG}}s. It can be found [[http://blip.tv/chaosd1 here]], [[http://mmogrinder.net/ here]] and [[http://www.blisteredthumbs.net/show/show-mmo-grinder here]].

He is also participating in SadPandaQAndA ([[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/sadpanda/pandaqa here]]), has on LordKat's live stream a monthly podcast with Creator/CriticalMarine called ''Conduct Unbecoming'' which is about the military, since he is a veteran, and is a guest on the weekly MMO podcast called ''MMO Underground'', which can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TWBfromTDOB1 here]].

A list of stuff done by Jon can be found [[ChaosD1List here]].

!!Tropes:
* AnimationAgeGhetto: [[invoked]] He relates an interesting MMO example in his ''MMO Grinder: MapleStory'' enforced by the community itself, not an outside group: He witnessed a group of players harassing one player because he was too old in their eyes to play this rather cutesy game - 16 years.
* BaitAndSwitchCredits: Episode 5 of the ''MMO Grinder'' seems to be at first about ''Pi Story'', but as this game was scrapped after a botched open beta, the rest of the review is about ''DungeonFighterOnline''.
* TheCameo:
** {{Phelous}}, [[SadPandaQAndA Sad Panda]] and {{Welshy}} appear in the introductory episode of ''MMO Grinder''.
** Nicole Burkhardt occasionally drops by, as in the LOTRO review to show off her musical skills.
** [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] informs Creator/ChaosD1 needlessly in the ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' review that it's gone free to play.
* CaramelldansenVid: Characters in ''Eden Eternal'' dance the Caramelldansen, so naturally [=ChaosD1=] puts the music over their dancing in his review. He apologizes for it.
* CatchPhrase: '''"''X'' DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!!!"''', screamed ear-piercingly loudly during cameos for {{Welshy}}, {{Phelous}}, and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]].
** He mentions in his review of ''Dark Blood'' that he himself doesn't really like the idea of a catchphrase; feeling it's something of a cheap gag. However, at the same time, sometimes it needs to be said (this time, in regard to the design of the game's female characters).
** In the same vein, some of the newer cameos instead use a DullSurprise-laden "Feel the magic".
* ContentWarnings: At the beginning of the ''MMO Grinder: VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline'':
--> Warning:
--> I mention VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft a lot in this review.
--> {{Fanboy}} discretion is advised.
* CosmeticAward: Used as a running gag. Specifically the WoW achievements that pop-up for various reasons.
** Episode 1: LUNA Online. An achievement called "Why don't you have a seat?" with Chris Hansen appears when he mentions you can search for players under 10.
** Episode 2: Pangya. "Why don't you have a seat?" appears again when Kooh and Lucia dance, with the added description of "You kept watching her dance." He pushes the achievement back downward when it appears for Lucia, though.
** Episode 4: LOTRO. "Name Dropper" at the end of the video with the text "Mention WoW over 30 times in a single review." He smacks it away.
** Episode 7: Eden Eternal. "Cheap Shot" appears he makes a very specific reference when mentioning the "Couples" system. The text reads "You went for an obvious joke on an easy target."
* CreativeClosingCredits: The ''Sword of the {{Berserk}}: Guts' Rage'' guide/review credits.
* {{Crossover}}:
** A review of ''La Horde'' With [[SadPandaQAndA Sad Panda]], {{Phelous}} and {{Welshy}}.
** A Mountain Dew vlog with Sad Panda, Phelous and Welshy.
** A LetsPlay of ''Portal 2'' with Sad Panda.
** A review of ''Bloody Mallory'' with [[SadPandaQAndA Sad Panda]], {{Phelous}}, {{Welshy}}, WebVideo/ObscurusLupa, [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]], Andrew Dickman and Creator/CriticalMarine.
** A review of ''TabletopGame/SwordGirls'' with JewWario.
* CrossPlayer: If given a choice, he will not play a guy in the MMO Grinder.
* CutenessProximity: The alpacas in ''Eden Eternal'' trigger this in his wife.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He does a stereotypical demon voice in the ending of the The Possession: Return of Six review and the beginning of the ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'' review.
* EvolutionaryLevels: Invoked with [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100905023259/thatguywiththeglasses/images/a/a0/Chaosevol1.jpg this photo]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The stinger in #7 promises a future Mtn Dew review.
* ForgetsToEat: [=ChaosD1=] once played 13 hours of ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline' without eating.
* {{Gainaxing}}: The sole reason why he preorders ''DragonsCrown''.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The alpacas in ''Eden Eternal'' are actually "Grass Mud Horses", a Chinese [[MemeticMutation Meme]] which circumvents government censorship: Their Chinese name, Cao Ni Ma, sounds like Mandarin for "Fuck your mother". [=ChaosD1=] just says they are a meme, but leaves it for the viewer to discover the punchline on his own.
* {{GIFT}}: The main reason why there is a section about the community in ''MMO Grinder'', although there is quite a variation in the niceness of the communities. Creator/ChaosD1 also states that sometimes the reputation of a community isn't as bad as exaggerated, as he, for example, had few problems with the infamous LeagueOfLegends community.
* GilliganCut: In the beginning of the ''WorldOfTanks'' review, he is installing the game, hoping it is quick to review and something he can delete after that so as to not clog up his PC. Cut to two weeks later, where he became addicted to the game.
* HaHaHaNo: Done by {{Phelous}} in TheStinger of his ''[[http://phelous.com/node/386 Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage]]'' review/guide and by [=ChaosD1=] himself in his ''MapleStory'' episode of ''MMO Grinder''.
* IHaveManyNames:
** Jon
** Chaos the Dark One
** Lord Chaos
** [=ChaosD1=]
** Chaos
** [=D1=]
** [=D1=] Productions
** The Arcade Whore
** Mountain Dew Guy
** Nios
** Total Chapos
** Join
* InsistentTerminology: Creator/ChaosD1 would like to remind you that LeagueOfLegends is correctly abbreviated as [=LoL=], not LOL or lol. Also, [=WoW=] is only the abbreviation for VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft and not a LeetLingo way of saying "wow".
* ItsQuietTooQuiet: Used verbatim in the ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'' review. He apologizes for it in a pop-up.
* LampshadeHanging: He points out that the BaitAndSwitchCredits in ''MMO Grinder: DungeonFighterOnline'' should have been obvious as a joke since the viewers can see the title of the video.
* TheNicknamer: On the ''Sword of the {{Berserk}}: Guts' Rage'' video credits:
** [[Spell/{{Anime}} Gattsu]] for [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Guts]]
** [[TheSimpsons Special Edna]] for [[DistressedDamsel Casca]]
** [[SmallAnnoyingCreature Annoying Naked Fairy Thing]] for [[PluckyComicRelief Puck]]
** Clown Pants Ninja for Rita
** Jŏb''' [[NoPronunciationGuide for]] Jōb
** [[{{Thundercats}} Lion-O]] [[MCHammer Hammerpants]] for [[UnfortunateNames Balzac]]
* NoIndoorVoice: He can yell very well.
* NowBuyTheMerchandise: In the beginning of the ''Eden Eternal'' episode, he changes his shirt because the one he was wearing appeared in a previous episode. Conveniently, the new shirt is the official [[http://www.printfection.com/MMOGrinder MMO Grinder T-shirt]]. He {{Lampshades}} this.
* PrecisionFStrike: He did a very funny one when he learned in ''Conduct Unbecoming'' that certain regulations became way more lenient since he left the Marine Corps. He went to the other side of the room and faced away from the mike, but it ''still'' was very loud.
* PreviouslyOn: Used in ''Chaos Reviews: MTN DEW Game Fuel 2011'', where {{Phelous}} provides the voice and makes up a story from a fantasy epic which naturally didn't really happen in the previous Mtn Dew review.
* RunningGag: Whenever sexualized underage characters appear in a MMO, he has a pop-up appearing with [[Series/{{Dateline}} Chris Hansen]].
* SelfDeprecation: "I currently live in Delaware because i'm retarded. (Seriously, I hate this state.)"
* ShoutOut: To [[http://www.youtube.com/user/MegaGWolf MegaGWolf]] in #7, who is a fellow reviewer who did {{Shout Out}}s to the MMO Grinder before, so [=ChaosD1=] returns the favor.
* SinisterScythe: Scythes are his favorite type of weapon in fiction.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Episode 10 of the ''MMO Grinder'' doesn't feature a MMO, but LeagueOfLegends, which is a MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena game. Creator/ChaosD1 originally thought it was a MMO when he included it in polls and decided to review it anyway when he learned otherwise.
* SpecialEditionTitle: For the ''VideoGame/DoctorWhoWorldsInTime'' MMO Grinder the title sequence fittingly emulates the one from ''Series/DoctorWho''.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: [[invoked]] He sprouts demon wings in the beginning of the ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'' review, which he immediately takes off again since they are intentionally silly looking. In TheStinger, the wings don't even deploy properly on the first try.
* TheStinger:
** A ''Mountain Dew Slurpee'' review in the ''Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage'' review/guide.
** In a direct reference to the Chee-tos "Chopsticks" commercial, [=ChaosD1=]'s wife annoys him a bit in the stinger of ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline'' review by playing the song over and over.
** In the ''{{Myst}} Online Uru'' review, he tries out traveling into a book. He succeeds, but remarks it is pointless when he only travels back to his room.
** In the ''Eden Eternal'' review, he first pwns [=MegaGWolf=] in the game and then plugs an upcoming Mtn Dew review.
*** [=MegaGWolf=] retaliates in the LeagueOfLegends review.
** In ''Chaos Reviews: MTN DEW Game Fuel 2011'', {{Phelous}} provides a more literal version of the PreviouslyOn segment.
** In the ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'' review, he is distraught that apparently LeagueOfLegends will win the poll. Also, it is shown that when he first tried to deploy the demon wings, they didn't work properly.
** In the RustyHearts review, he's watching the character Angela walking while he wears a pair of 3D glasses, until the Chris Hansen pop-up appears, implying Angela is underage.
** In the "Fantasy Tennis" review, It cuts to "Tales of Fantastical Tennis" where Andycak reads the game's storyline in a goofy, overly simplified manner. This is a direct reference to the "Tales of the Legendary League" videos he occasionally posts on Website/YouTube.
** In the CityofHeroes review, it cuts to an image of the store "Scheherazade" with a voice clip from Phelous's 2011 April Fools video, on "New Phelous" trying to pronounce the word.
** In the ''{{Lineage 2}}'' review, he is seen gleefully deinstalling the game.
** The ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' review has a few outtakes by Linkara.
** The ''WorldOfTanks'' review has horrible tank puns.
** The ''Project Powder'' review has a teaser for the crossover with JewWario.
