Nick Landis, better known amongst the internet as '''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 also hired by Hi-Rez Entertainment to provide the voice of Rama in ''{{SMITE}}''.

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''
* ''VideoGame/RiseOfNightmares''
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ - Ultimate Tenkaichi''

!!Roles aside from the above:
* ''VideoGame/DevilsDare'': Additional Voices
* ''Anime/FairyTail'': Rala (Sun Village arc)
* ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'': Rama, Seventh Avatar of Vishnu

!!Provides examples of:

* AnnoyingLaugh: He's clearly good at it, [[http://hydra-media.cursecdn.com/smite.gamepedia.com/e/e4/Ram_laugh.ogg take]] a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUnC9nrmkb0&feature=youtu.be&t=51s listen]] to his laugh for [[Myth/HinduMythology Rama]] in ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}''.
* 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 ''Anime/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 ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. It's really big.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Discussed in his ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' review, though dubbed ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' Syndrome therein.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: [[invoked]] His original Amnesia LP was this before March 2016. It was among the large amount of gaming content that was removed from blip.tv, and it was never uploaded to Youtube, but Lani uploaded the episodes to Youtube after a fan sent him his archive of the videos.
%%* 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]].
*** He voices Creator/ChristopherSabat voicing Creator/BrianDrummond.
** 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.
** He voices [[Characters/SmiteHinduPantheon Rama]] in VideoGame/{{Smite}}. May also double as PlayingAgainstType, since Rama is very calm and quiet. [[AnnoyingLaugh Except when he laughs]].
* 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.
