Lanipator ([[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY pronounced lan-ee-pah-TOR]]) is the creator of ''WebVideo/YuYuHakushoAbridged'', a member of Creator/TeamFourStar, the group behind ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', and is also affiliated with Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, with his show ''Outside the Otaku''.

He was one of the original participants in the TheWarOfTheAbridgedSeriesCreators, which started when he hung up on [[LittleKuriboh DAN GREEN]] (who was calling from the the ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' 2nd anniversary party). This was also the point where Lanipator coined the phrase "Lanipwnd".

He has also done LetsPlays for the following games:

* ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent''
** The ''Justine'' DLC
** As well as ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs''
* ''RiseOfNightmares''
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ - Ultimate Tenkaichi''

!!Provides examples of:

* AtomicFBomb: Detonates a '''''nuke''''' in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA-WH2GxDVE this reaction video to TeamFourStar's Youtube account suspension.]] [[labelnote:'''WARNING''']] Keep your speaker volume reasonable. The audio is very, very loud.[[/labelnote]] To say it reached MemeticMutation levels would be putting it mildly.
** The F bomb was originally used in his review of FinalFantasyUnlimited when he learns the two most annoying characters in the show share an episode together.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[DissonantSerenity Err... Yes.]] [[http://blip.tv/lanipwned/lani-plays-rise-of-nightmares-part-5-5805652 As you can see here.]]
* {{BFS}}: Lanipator has one in his review of ''{{Berserk}}''. It's really big.
* BigBeautifulMan: He is quite good-looking and his size makes him strangely even more attractive.
* CarpetOfVirility: Manly Lanipator is Manly... [[spoiler: and sexy]].
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Discussed in his {{Berserk}} review, though dubbed DynastyWarriors Syndrome therein.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Has at least four pets: Martin the Lovable Rat, Ace, Martin's little brother, Clark the cat, and a big black dog.
** Sadly, Ace and Martin are no longer with us. They will be missed.
* LaughingMad: Nearing the end of ''Justine''.
* NoIndoorVoice: His alternate persona, Magnus, because he's [++ ''EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEME!''++]
* ManOfAThousandVoices: He provides voices for five AbridgedSeries:
** WebVideo/YuYuHakushoAbridged, mostly a solo effort with help from his girlfriend and the occasional guest voice actor
** WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged, as Krillin, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Popo.
*** It might be easier to say he voices Creator/ChristopherSabat. [[MyFriendsandZoidberg And Krillin]].
** WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries, as Lector.
** NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow, as Zabuza.
** WebVideo/KampferAbridged, as Kämpfer Mikoto and Strangled Stray Dog.
** He also does a pretty good impression of MarlonBrando.
* MoralityPet: His rat Martin, who later gets a place in the ''Outside The Otaku'' opening credits.
* ParodySue: His custom character Spudz from his ''Ultimate Tenkaichi'' LP. He's constantly giving him absurd backstories like being the bastard child of Goku and Mr Popo (and somehow, Piccolo) and being half-dragon.
* RatedMForManly: Magnus is [++ ''EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEME!''++] and doesn't let you forget it. Manga/AzumangaDaioh is [++ ''EXTREEEEEEEEEEME!''++]
-->'''Tomo:''' ''[[CaptainObvious The sky is blue!]]''
-->'''Magnus:''' [+ '''FUCK YEAH IT IS!'''+]
* TheScream: Seems to be a specialty of his. Two of the characters he's played have had extended, epic screams. He's also delivered one while not in character (see AtomicFBomb above).
* ShoutOut: A number of them. Like in his LetsPlay of Justine, he tells his character to "[[Music/SystemOfADown Wake up. Grab your brush and put on a little make-up]]."
* ShutUpHannibal: In his ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' Let's Play.
---> '''Alexander''': Do you truly see no good in me, or evil in Agrippa?
---> '''Lanipator''': No, all I see is [[FullFrontalAssault your wang!]] Put some clothes on!
* TrainingMontage: Lanipator works out to ''Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger'' by Music/DaftPunk just to build up the strength to lift Guts' sword.
