Our Gangsta Crib Y'all is the current home to a large community of writers on Fanfiction.net. The community started out as a single ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' forum, but has since grown to include various authors from all corners of the site.

The Crib is essentially a bunch of teenagers (named by themselves as "Criblings") who post on a FanFiction forum and discuss video games, movies, and other forms of entertainment. Sound simple, no? Not really. Due to being teenagers, drama erupts from time to time, snarky arguments occur, and other general misfortune ensues.

And, of course, there are a lot of tropes, which due to various members of the forum being not only [[GenreSavvy Genre Savvy,]] but also [[DeadpanSnarker ridiculously sarcastic,]] are quickly identified and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded.]]

Here is where some of the members will attempt to record the multitude of tropes that ensue on a daily basis.
(Note: As you can see, this page is JustForFun. This should not be taken seriously, and should only really be read by members of the forum. So, um, if you're not a member, [[IAmVeryBritish bugger off.]])


----
!!Our Gangsta Crib Y'all provides examples of:
* {{Adorkable}}: Applies to most people, as, let's face it, you have to be a bit of a dork to spend this amount of time on an internet forum. Of particular note is Tip.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: There are no [[OfficialCouple Official Couples]] within the crib, despite the amount of (usually sarcastic) flirting that goes on.
* AllLowercaseLetters: liza likes to talk like this a whole lot also blue does sometimes but who cares about him hes a stupid dumb.
* AlternateUniverse: The forum called "The Society of Smashing Fiction," a SuperSmashBrothers forum that has several members that are suspiciously similar to various Criblings.
* AmuletOfConcentratedAwesome: The badge worn by forum moderators is seen by many as this.
* AnAxeToGrind: Skully shouts "AAAAAXE!" in half his posts.
* AntiHero: Dark is Type 3.
* ApologizesALot: Giga. But then, [[IAmVeryBritish He Is Very British,]] so it's to be expected really.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassNormal: Pretty much everyone.
** LittleMissBadass: Blaze, Liza and TNFG all apply to this trope.
** BadassBookworm: Tip and Mega. Some others, also.
* BadBoss: Primarily PlayedForLaughs with Giga.
* BattleCouple: Sawah and her boyfriend Jake become this when playing LeagueOfLegends
* BigEater: Laguz. There was once a time when Blue took her, Vinny, and Dark out for Wendy's and Laguz had 10 burgers. She also tends to have a lot of pizza when she has the chance, and her record is 12 or 13 pieces at once.
* BiTheWay: Nojah,TNFG, and Suzy.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Vinny towards Sawah. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] because he's actually younger.
* BreakUpMakeUpScenario: Vinny and Mega, Vinny and Giga, Tip and CC, Giga and CC, Giga and Nojah (took a LONG time) Blue and Mega (took even longer) etc., etc., etc.
* BrilliantButLazy: Applies to a lot of people, but MC is definitely the most notable.
* BrotherSisterIncest: [[IncestSubtext Implied]] (in Giga's IncestYayShipping mind anyway) with Vinny and Sawah.
* ButtMonkey: Various people. Dark is the main one, but Blue gets a lot of bashing also. Tip is used as a ButtMonkey by Dark, which never really caught on to anyone else.
* CasanovaWannabe: Blue. Majorly. Also Vinny, Suzy, Giga, and Laguz to an extent.
* CatchPhrase: There's a whole thread on the forum for them.
* CausticCritic: Liza.
* ChickMagnet: [[AvertedTrope Averted;]] Blue wishes he was one.
* ChildProdigy: PlayedForLaughs. Mega is actually fourteen, but people often just pretend he's a really smart eight-year-old.
* ChildhoodFriends[=/=]ChildhoodFriendRomance: Mudkip and Bad.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Completely inverted with Mega. Even MORE inverted with Liza, who wasn't technically old enough to join FF at first yet still knew every swear word and innuendo imaginable.
* ChivalrousPervert: Blue, though his amounts of "chivalry" vary from a lot to none at all.
* CloudCuckooLander: Everyone on the forums, to varying levels. You could say that the crib is actually Cloud Cuckoo Land.
** Even [[OnlySaneMan PPAD and Mech]] have their moments.
* CoolBigSis: Chika.
* CoolButStupid: The Forum Criblings Archive.
* CoolTeacher: PPAD was this to Sawah in her first mafia game.
** TSO had the same role towards Tip.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Nira.
* DeadpanSnarker: Pretty much everyone. The Crib is a WorldOfSnark like no other.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "Chat 17, the sequel to the other 15 sequels."
* DesignatedVillain: In the short stories written about Criblings (called "Sit and Watches" or "S&Ws") Dark and Blue are usually cast as villains.
* DirtyOldMan: When Vinny started watching [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan Dokuro-chan]] for a while, Blaze looked at him like this for a good solid week. He was 14 at the time, which makes it all the more hilarious. If that's the case, then he might as well be a DirtyKid.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Vinny to various FireEmblem characters.
** Debatably Blue to Sawah. Well, not really distracted, per se, but he does have a [[StalkerWithACrush crush on her]].
** Giga to [[Franchise/AceAttorney Trucy Wright]]. Hilarity ensued.
** This isn't [[AllMenArePerverts All Men Are Perverts]], girls aren't beyond this either. Nira, Sawah, Laguz and TNFG are all known to completely lose focus when some anime {{Bishounen}} is mentioned.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Shilo [[RealLife IRL]]
** Due to his username and the fact that he sometimes has female avatars, Vinny is often confused for a girl by new users.
* DudeMagnet: Upon Sawah's arrival, there was basically a free-for-all between several guys as to who got to talk to her.
* EasilyForgiven: Giga's moderarting is so flawed that most people who are banned can get back on just by apologizing.
* TheEeyore: Mega.
** Nira posts a complaint about her day nearly every time she's online.
* EmoTeen: Meph wants to be this, but isn't.
* {{Emoticon}}: Used a lot, by a lot of different people. ":P" is a particular favourite.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The forum used before the crib was "The Conversation Station."
* {{Expy}}: Vinny's EvilCounterpart, Ynniv, is an expy of [[SmugSnake Matt]] [[ManipulativeBastard Engarde]] from [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright: Justice For All]].
* EvilCounterpart: Most people have an evil alter-ego that they roleplay as from time to time. Perhaps the most well-known examples are Silencio (Chris) and [[SdrawkcabName Ynniv]] (Vinny.)
* FaceHeelTurn: Raccoon started out as a normal user, then became a troll later on.
* {{Fanboy}}[=/=]{{Fangirl}}: Everyone. [[AndZoidberg Except]] [[OnlySaneMan Mech.]]
* FanserviceCostumes: Nojah has been known to inflict these on Tip.
* FiveManBand: There are mulitple examples in Sit and Watches, but for the forum as a whole, there's the mod team:
** TheLeader: Giga, the [[ReluctantRuler reluctant admin]] of the forums who has the final say in most decisions.
** TheLancer: Vinny, Giga's NumberTwo who he often talks through decisions with.
** TheSmartGuy: Tip, who offers logical and reasoned advice.
** TheChick: Sawah, who often helps Giga with his stress issues.
** TheBigGuy: Mari, who can knock people out by [[ItMakesSenseInContext throwing spiced salad at them]].
** SixthRanger: Mega, who has been on and off the mod team more times than anyone can count.
* FounderOfTheKingdom: Mega's [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] mafia forum started the whole group.
* FourGirlEnsemble: The Random Brigade, especially in their FanFiction about themselves.
* FreudianTrio:
** The Three Amigos, when they existed, worked like this:
*** [[TheMcCoy The Id]]: Blaze, in those days somewhat headstrong and wild.
*** [[TheSpock The Superego]]: Tip, logical and intelligent.
*** [[TheKirk The Ego]]: Giga, the balance between the two.
** Also with Meph, Giga, and MC:
*** The Id: Meph, who is quick to overreact.
*** The Superego: MC, who is more logical but less empathetic.
*** The Ego: Giga, the balance between the two.
** And yet another one, with Vinny, Giga and Mega's FireEmblem discussions:
*** The Id: Giga, a fanboy who lets bias cloud his judgement.
*** The Superego: Mega, who believes in CharacterTiers and plays for efficiency.
*** The Ego: Vinny, a fanboy who plays for efficiency.
* GenkiGirl: Sawah. Oh so much.
** Laguz, Blaze, and several others are also examples.
* GenreSavvy: Everyone on the forums who [[OneOfUs is a troper]].
** And even some who aren't.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Many instances, CC's {{Pokemon}} {{Rule 34}} being perhaps the most memorable (although Nojah's [[FireEmblem Dorcas/Farina]] artwork comes a close second.)
* GhostCity: Most threads turn into this after a while.
* AGlassOfChianti: [[EvilCounterpart Ynniv]] is rarely seen without a glass of wine in his hand for no apparent reason.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Excessive cursing is technically banned on the forums (although its very EasilyForgiven) so some... creative substitute words are often used.
* GrammarNazi: Mari, massively.
* HandshakeSubstitute: Giga and Sawah have the "Hermaphrodite Fist" described as "like a bro-fist, but between a boy and a girl."
* HatesEveryoneEqually: Liza.
* TheHero: Vinny might as well be the hero of the crib, as he is always cast in the hero role in S&W's.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: There are several examples, but Giga and Vinny is probably the best one.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Suzy [[RealLife IRL]]
* HoYay: There's not technically any canon pairings, heterosexual or otherwise, but that doesn't stop the shipping. Don's Giga/Vinny CrackFic has gone down in history.
* IAmVeryBritish: The entire American forum population consider Giga and Meph to be this. And they are, mostly.
* IHaveManyNames: Mari is also known as Wiggles, Maritry, Yosh, Bows, Fan, Humphrey, MYBF, Nick, Raichu, and a load of other names besides. He even has a list of nicknames on his profile.
** Suzy, Nojah and Skully, among others, like to change their usernames a lot.
* InJoke: Oh so many. This entire page is basically one.
* InterruptedSuicide: Sawah first joined the forum after Vinny, Nojah and Tip [[BigDamnHeroes burst into]] her old {{Vocaloid}} forum and helped stop one of her friends from taking his own life.
* IronicName: Mega has never played a VideoGame/MegaManClassic game before, he just put Mega Man in his username because [[RuleOfCool it sounded cool.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: Whenever Dark makes a decent point he gets this reaction.
-->Blue: "Dark once again surprises me by making a point which I actually agree with.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Dark may act like a jerk at times, but really he's a pretty good guy.
** Liza also has her moments.
* KillEmAll: Liza often has this attitude.
--> MC: "Hi Liza
--> Liza: "[[CreepyMonotone die]] [[TheNicknamer ruexy]]"
* LargeHam: Applies to many people. Of particular note is Skully, who announces his presence either by an [[RuleOfCool overdramatic car/gun stunt]], or by shouting "[[AnAxeToGrind AAAAAAXE]]!" or "I'M A WOLF!"
** Vinny has his "[[NoIndoorVoice MT. LAVALAVA]]" CatchPhrase. And of course his LeeroyJenkins moments.
* LaughablyEvil: Dark was this when he first joined. While he's largely dropped the evil act now, he still as his moments.
* LeeroyJenkins: Vinny invokes this so often it has become his CatchPhrase.
** The main reason for Skully being a {{Noob}} in LeagueOfLegends is because of this.
* LesYay: Liza is a lesbian, and has had girlfriends in the past. Not to mention the fact that she's [[GirlOnGirlIsHot shipped with]] [[BiTheWay TNFG.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Including the people that drop in from time to time, the forum has over thirty members, and is still growing.
* LockedIntoStrangeness: If you read 10 pages of one of the chat threads... This is you.
* LoveDodecahedron: The forum is pretty much one big one. There is an entire thread dedicated to [[ShipperOnDeck shipping]] and very few people are safe from being paired up (in a CrowningMomentOfFunny, [[IJustWantToBeLoved Suzy]] of all people is one of the people with no pairings.)
* PowerTrio: In the Crib {{Minecraft}} server:
** ActionHero: Blue, who charges into crowds of enemies.
** ScienceHero: TIP, who extensively looks into town development and item research.
** GuileHero: Mega, who mines 24/7 and drops crippling insults upon being killed.
* WorldOfSnark: Almost every member of the forum is a DeadpanSnarker. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who isn't, to be honest.
