->''[[CatchPhrase Hey everybody, it's Chuggaaconroy!]]''

[[http://www.youtube.com/user/chuggaaconroy Chuggaaconroy]] (real name: Emile Rosales-Birou) is a [[LetsPlay Let's Player]] with over 850,000 subscribers. He is known for his high production values, his regular update schedule, his lighthearted and ([[AccidentalInnuendo mostly]]) family-friendly approach to games, his propensity for {{catchphrase}}s and {{running gag}}s (usually based on [[MemeticMutation internet memes]]), his [[NoIndoorVoice impressive lung capacity]], his [[PungeonMaster hilariously bad puns]] and [[LargeHam overblown]] reactions to things that happen as he plays.

He's also collaborating with LetsPlay/ProtonJon and LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun on a collective LP account, known as LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.

For the most part, every game he's [=LPed=] to date has been available on Nintendo's systems; with the exception of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'', and ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', they've all been Nintendo first-party titles. He has played at least one game on every Creator/{{Nintendo}} home console, including six on his personal favorite, the NintendoGameCube. He is known for his opposition to {{emulation}}, though he had to bend this personal rule to LP ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'', which are [[NoExportForYou not legally available in North America]]. He started out doing exclusively [[RolePlayingGame RPGs]], but beginning with ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', he started doing other genres as well, such as {{platform|Game}}ers.

He is also a big fan of the [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] series. Thus far, he has [=LPed=] eight Mario games: three [=RPGs=] (''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''), three platformers (''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''), a hybrid of RPG and platformer (''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'') and ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion''. He has indicated that he might do ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' at some point, but thus far he has not revealed any definite plans for it. LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys have also done several ''Mario'' games like ''VideoGame/MarioParty'', ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'' and ''VideoGame/NewSuperLuigiU''.

After more than two years at it, he became a Website/YouTube Partner, which was unprecedented among Let's Players (multiple others have since become partners), due to the legal "gray area" that showing game footage entails. He's also joined a collective of gamers called [=TheGameStation=] (now Creator/{{Polaris}}), which looks to be shaping up as an [[FollowTheLeader alternative]] to Machinima.com. Finally, he's well known for his work with TheSpeedGamers, even appearing live at their home base for two separate marathons, the second of which was the first time since he started doing [=LPs=] that he's shown his face on the internet (he appeared wearing a mask in the first).

----
!!His Let's Plays and other videos provide examples of:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:A-E]]
* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: In his deleted tag video, Chugga claims he can turn his head 180 degrees.
* AbusiveParents: Claims the player character has these in Emerald.
* AccidentalInnuendo: In-universe, he likes pointing it out when he sees it. In particular, he found himself unable to take a certain scene in ''MajorasMask'' seriously, due to the camera angles adding layers of VisualInnuendo for him. He also prone to falling victim to this trope himself without realizing it.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeNTPp8V_Ko&t=7m56s He has a thing for "chests".]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n-u2WB7VLo&t=2m00s "Luigi was gripping on to some sort of...tall, long thing."]]
** "Bro-balls!"
** "WHY WON'T YOU LET ME SCREW YOU, WALLY?"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=2WbcDLfQDLI#t=562s "I actually don't have as many balls as I'd like...]] *''{{Beat}}''* ''[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: [[Flat What Wonderful.. ]]
]]''"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=8pGG2ai3a1U#t=15s "Entei drained me of my balls"]].
* AccidentalMisnaming: People apparently often mispronounce his name, Emile, as Eel. Chugga calls this out during Super Luigi Galaxy, saying it's not that hard to pronounce.
** It is also a common occurrence for people to pronounce his name as ''[[GenderBlenderName Emily]]''. Chuggaa is not amused.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: The title for Episode 5 of ''Link's Awakening'' is "Big Bottle Bash Brings Back [=BowWow=]".
* {{Adorkable}}: All the fangirls (as can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=814wY6z966M here]]) agree with this.
** He questions them and this trope in {{Okamiden}}.
--> '''Chugga:''' I am such a nerd. Then again, I always get all these comments from [[FanGirl girls]] being like, "You're so cute when you're nerdy." Since when are people cute when they're nerdy? You know what, I think I went to high school in the wrong time time period cause dang, when I was in high school all the girls were like "Eww! You play video games over the age of 5! You're never gonna get laid cause [[SarcasmMode that's so important in high school]]!" What high school should I have been going to that I wasn't?
* AGodAmI: PlayedForLaughs in his ''Super Paper Mario'' LP, while [[WalkOnWater running on water]].
--> '''Chugga:''' I'M GOD!
* AllMythsAreTrue: {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d at 3:13 in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqz4NyITxnI&feature=feedu this video.]]
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In-Universe:
** Pikmin/Pikmin 2: Olimar is a loose cannon adventurer with a [[AxCrazy thirst for blood]], and in the sequel, the President is [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething willing to get his hands dirty at exploring the dungeons. Even more so than Olimar and the Pikmin]], [[LeeroyJenkins to the point of challenging Bumbling Snitchbugs]].
** Majora's Mask: The Goron Elder is a DirtyOldMan, Jim is a BadassBystander, and Zora Link is always trying to get concussions.
** Pokemon Emerald: The player character's dad (Norman) loves Wally more than his own son, Gym Leader Roxanne is a braggart who sounds like Dr. Phil, and many people in Hoenn are okay with making light of the S. S. Cactus's tragic crash and want to rob from it.
** Animal Crossing New Leaf:
*** Shari is a time-paradox zombie because Chugga switched which system he was recording on without changing the time, moving things forward a day. And she speaks in a voice that's somewhere between CreepyMonotone and Baked (though the baked part may just be Chugga's cracky voice). As the months go on, she also starts exhibit questionable behavior to the point Chugga suspects [[spoiler: she may have killed Amelia]].
*** Pango is a manipulative {{Jerkass}} who throws away gifts without a second thought and insults the other villagers.
*** Croque as a {{Jerkass}} with no redeeming qualities who responds to everything by saying "as if". He could very well be right, since Croque is generally a jerk to Chugga every time he tries talking to him. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold But then he showed up at Molly's party]].
* AluminumChristmasTrees: He's said that he made his ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' LP (which was the first non-RPG he did) because he found the game underrated and under-LP'd. A few years later -- in part ''due'' to Chugga's LP -- it's a much more popular game to LP and has gained [[LetsPlay/JoshJepson many]] [[LetsPlay/AttackingTucans more]] [[LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}} people]] praising it.
* {{Angrish}}: "DOH! FREAKING PIZZAS". See the links at HilariousOuttakes below.
** "FOR THE LOVE OF L... (beat) PEE!"
** "For the love... of... Music/HilaryDuff on a STICK! Can I attack from the back?" [{{Beat}}] "[[FlatWhat What?]] [[LampshadeHanging That's got to be the most random thing I've ever said.]]"
* AntiClimaxBoss: In-universe. [[spoiler:The rematch with Pokémaniac Steve]] lasts around 20 seconds.
** [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario Shadoo]]
** Despite fighting what is considered to be one of the game's hardest bosses at a high difficulty level, he takes down [[spoiler: Hades' Heart]] quickly, and with relative ease.
* AprilFoolsDay
** In 2009, he did the ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' joke LP.
** In 2011, he tweeted that LP #14 would be ''Pikmin 2''. LP #14 was actually ''Luigi's Mansion'', but LP #''15'', starting the day after ''Luigi's Mansion'', WAS ''Pikmin 2''.
* ApologisesALot: Has a tendency to apologize immediately after making a bad joke or pun, although this doesn't really apply to him in LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: From {{Pikmin}} 2, Episode 24:
--> '''Chugga''': (While attacking an Armored Cannon Larva) DESTROY! KILL! MAIM! ...Taunt.
** He does this in {{Okamiden}}'s Episode 40:
--> '''Chugga''': Freaking DESTROY! KILL! MAIM...and MAKE THEIR DAYS UNPLEASANT! Kill! Destroy! And then... [[BlowYouAway *uses Galestorm*]] blow on them!
* ArtifactTitle: His username is supposed to be Chugga A. Conroy, but he found that most websites don't allow spaces or punctuation in their usernames, leading to the somewhat strange moniker of Chuggaaconroy. [[note]]This was before Website/YouTube allowed such names to be used, but it's been spelled and pronounced that way too long for it to be changed[[/note]]
* ArtificialStupidity: In ''{{Pikmin}}'' and its sequel, the titular species frequently disobey his orders and sometimes [[TooDumbToLive get into hazardous situations.]]
--> '''Chugga''': Pikmin AI...
** In episode 7 of Pokemon Colosseum, the A.I. trainers use moves that don't effect ghost types on Chugga's Misdreavus ''twelve times.'' This cracked him up so much that he made Misdreavus a permanent member of his team.
** Again, in the Finale of the ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' LP, [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss Evice]] had the victory in the palm of his hand. It looked grim for Chugga and his team, when suddenly... Evice decided, for ''both'' of his moves, to use an X Attack on each of his Pokemon.]] Cue a FreakOut from Chugga.
** In Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, the trainers use not very effective moves against Chugga's Aron ''constantly'', in a lot of circumstances when the other Pokémon that's out would take super effective damage from it. And because of Aron's absurdly high physical defense, they always wind up only doing one or two damage a hit. He gets GenreSavvy about this later, teaching Aron Protect, knowing that special attacker Pokémon will go for it (even though Protect gets move priority) due to its subpar special defense.
** In Xenoblade, he considers the AI outside of battle to be hilarious in how it has trouble performing the most basic tasks like walking into elevators and climbing up vines.
* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: He's subject to this in Super Luigi Galaxy when he doesn't get everything in a volcano that's filling up with lava.
--> '''Chugga''': [[RapidFireNo Nonononononono]] go back down go back down!
--> ''lands in the volcano, and sees it filling with lava.''
--> '''Chugga''': [[OhCrap Oh wait, no! Go back up go back up go back up!]] Oh jeez, [[LampshadeHanging I can't make up my frickin mind.]]
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny:
** It's not exactly unheard of for him to get distracted during ramblings or walking to get something, significant or not. Possibly the funniest example is in his first episode of the ''Luigi's Mansion'' LP:
--> '''Chugga:''' ''"...and hopefully we'll find some trace of Mario-" *coins pop out of a drawer* "OOH! COINS! MONEY! SHINY! (Beat) Wow, I got easily distracted from that outro. Well, see you next time! [[LampshadeHanging And no, I do not have ADHD.]]"''
** Sometimes he'll be explaining something, only to get distracted and never explain it again (or take a while to remember it). In episode 25 of ''Pikmin 2'', he got distracted ''twice'' within ''a minute'' of each other:
--> '''Chugga:''' ''"If I'm not mistaken, that is the first Wollywog death we've had that there is a Skitterleaf, they're in the water...[[TemptingFate they're pretty harmless-]]" *Olimar and Louie both get knocked over by an attack* "-I say that and he knocks over both the captains!" *Louie gets hit again* "Then he knocks over Louie! He knocks over both captains at the same time, that was pretty good. The leaf doesn't really give that many Pikmin though and dang those leaves look really nice. Impressive for GameCube standards, that's for dang sure." *cut to a different scene and he never finishes his original sentence about the Wollywog*''
** It happens again in ''Pikmin 2'' Episode 46.
-->'''Chugga:''' ''"Um, I'm actually playing with a different controller, as if anybody cared. I'm playing using a -- Wow, it ate a white and died."''
*** He never finished the sentence.
* AudienceAwarenessAdvantage[[invoked]]:
** Chugga mentions this in regards to the news and gaming, and has his own personal version where they should know all the technical ins and outs of game hardware as he does.
** [[RunningGag He also frequently mocks the in-game trainers and wild Pokemon of]] ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]'', for not thinking as strategically and in-depth about the implications of usages of moves as he does.
* AudienceParticipation: Several examples:
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', fans had chance to propose nicknames for for his Pokémon (and win [[LargeHam FABULOUS PRIZES]]).
** His LP of [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing: New Leaf]] was entirely built on this concept - fans decided about nearly everything in his town, from its name to new public works projects.
** Additionally, he often reads comments under his videos and takes some ideas from them - for example, in VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising LP he often used weapons suggested by fans.
* AuthorTract: He's not obnoxious about it, but he does tend to go into monologues about why some obscure/less loved thing or character SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove, in a way that sounds as if it were as obvious to everyone as to him.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Franchise/{{Pokemon}} games and uses it to great effect in his [=LPs=] of them, often quoting detailed statistics about damage multipliers in specific situations (and [[ArtificialStupidity mocking the AI]] for choosing attacks which are ineffective in that situation). Albeit most kids who grew up with the games and played past VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire could do the same thing, if only because they inevitably wound up at Website/{{Smogon}} somehow.
* BadassAdorable: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in his ''Wind Waker'' LP, when he says "Cuteness never looked so badass."
** [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in {{Okamiden}} as a {{callback}} when Chibiterasu and Kuni became partners.
* BagOfHolding: Refers to this trope by name during his Colosseum LP, and even refers to it as a Trope.
* BeCarefulWhatYouSay:
** Chugga has started the [[MemeticMutation Steve Meme AND the NO coin left behind movement]], which he {{lampshade|Hanging}}d:
--> '''Chugga''': I know you guys will not like that for the no coins left behind movement which you ''ACTUALLY STARTED!'' I gotta watch what I say.
** In episode 26 of ''Pikmin 2'', he notes how the [[spoiler:Water Wraith]] hasn't spawned yet in the Submerged Castle. [[YouJustHADToSayIt It spawns IMMEDIATELY after he does so.]]
** And when he wanted to die to get more money.
** Billy the Ghost Shroom from Super Paper Mario Episode 10 already has a Facebook page.
** In his ''Super Paper Mario'' LP, Mimi says "you can call me Mimikins." He reveals that his mom called him Mimikins when he was three.
--> '''Chugga''': I'm probably gonna regret telling the Internet this but...
* BerserkButton:
** He goes to Beedle's shop and gives him the complimentary card, hoping for something good. He gets nothing. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments So he uses all 99 of his bombs trying to blow up Beedle's ship.]]
--> '''"DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE!"'''
** Ever since ''{{Pikmin}}'' ended, he doesn't like to hear about Steve (or any red leaf Pikmin), and goes out of his way to avoid mentioning him in any and all future LP's ([[ZigZaggedTrope usually]]). LetsPlay/ProtonJon torments him with this in LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys, but those instances are for that page.
* BetterThanABareBulb: Chugga is exceedingly fond of LampshadeHanging, to the point where he points out almost every single trope that happens in the game, whether it be in something that he says or even the way he plays. Basically, if it's there, he's probably hung a lampshade on it.
* BigNo:
** Seen throughout, but especially at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrh4AnNpTVM this video]] around 15:30.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FbsqirWZSU#t=8m40s This one.]]
** On occasion says "NO!", see CatchPhrase. When reading [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Smithy's]] dialogue, he'd have some epic ones.
** [[http://youtu.be/Bas5GxbAdAs?t=14m39s This clip]] from a bonus episode of his ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' LP.
* BigOMG:
** Many times, including an infamous example from his ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokemon Crystal]]'' LP, when he caught a shiny Koffing.
*** This one got upstaged ''majorly'' by Bonus Episode 2 of his ''Pokémon Emerald'' LP, where he caught a [[OlympusMons Groudon]] with a Nest Ball at ''nearly full health''. Needless to say, he shatters our eardrums.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBYCR6lpxsI#t=9m40s The finale]] of Colosseum LP, where [[spoiler:Chugga at the end has only Marshall against Evice's Machamp and Tyranitar. [[IdiotBall Five points for guessing what Evice did]].]]
** Borders on the LP's RunningGag during his {{Pikmin}} 2 videos, especially when it involves enemies getting the drop on him.
* BigWhat: When things don't go well for him he usually does this. His famous freakout from ''{{Pikmin}}'' actually provided the page quote. In his [[SuperMarioGalaxy Super Luigi Galaxy]]-run, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n-u2WB7VLo#t=8m11s he even combined this]] with a [[LaughingMad mad laugh]] one or two times.
* BilingualBonus: In episode 36 of Okamiden, he writes the kanji for "God" (神, ''kami'') on Chibi's mask.
* BiTheWay: As [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing mayor of Palette]], he romances with [[TheDitz Shari]], [[ShrinkingViolet Molly]], [[CampGay Pietro]] and [[ManlyGay Stinky]].
* BookEnds:
** He starts out his Majora's Mask LP with all three C-buttons empty, like the game forces. He ends the first half of the finale the same way.
** He played ''Super Paper Mario'' because he thought it was an underrated game. He ends the final bonus episode in the Overthere Shrine, which he's stated has underrated music.
*** A more obvious one; he begins the game as Mario, and ends the final bonus episode as Mario.
** In Episode 12 of ''Kirby's Epic Yarn'' it starts and ends with Kirby [[IdleAnimation jumping rope]] and then falling, purposefully.
** Pokemon Colosseum starts and ends with Chugga talking over the pre-title screen intro movie.
* BornLucky:
** He hits the jackpot dozens upon dozens of times in his ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' LP's, having the Pretty Lucky badge save him from many dangerous attacks, [[CursedWithAwesome the curse]] increase his attack at ''very'' opportune moments (such as when he's using a Power Bounce) and getting his Star Points doubled after boss battles. IIRC, he probably only died once in the entirety of both games, and [[AutoRevive that was]] [[DeathIsCheap willingly]] to [[BonusBoss The Anti-Guy Unit]]. As if that wasn't enough to convince you, go see his fight against Macho Grubba in ''Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door''. Despite Grubba boosting his attack, speed, and his double attacks, NOT A SINGLE ATTACK hit Mario. Chugga basically walloped Grubba without breaking a sweat.
** Chugga wanted a Koffing for his team during his play of ''Pokémon Crystal''. So naturally the very next Pokémon he runs into after telling us this is a shiny one. He was a bit [[BigOMG excited.]]
** In his Pokemon Crystal LP when he caught a Phanpy, he checked its stats. Save for HP they were all [[LuckySeven 7]].
** In Pikmin 2, he cracked open three different eggs in the same area, at the same time... and got three purple potions. Considering that he was perpetually low on purple potions for most of this LP...
** ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]'', when battling [[spoiler:[[BonusBoss Steven]]]], Kappa gets '''4 critical hits in 5 turns'''. That kind of stuff usually never happens.
** In his Super Mario Sunshine LP: "How often do you survive the instant kill spikes?!"
--> '''Chugga''': ''What now, Megaman? Huh? WHAT NOW?!''
** During a battle with Venus in Pokemon Colosseum, Chugga's Granbull is paralyzed, confused, and in love with Venus's Wigglytuff, mathematically giving him a 12.5% chance of actually attacking. As Chugga describes this, Granbull uses Strength on Wigglytuff, knocking it down to half health.
* BreatherLevel: In-universe; Chugga considers [[{{Pikmin}} Glutton's Kitchen]] to be this. [[spoiler:Which was subverted when he ended up losing the largest amount of Pikmin up to that point.]]
* BrickJoke:
** One episode of his ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door'' LetsPlay is titled "This Video Ends With "Bitch" at the very beginning. At the very end:
--> '''Chugga''': ''Highly inappropriate?! [[ItMakesSenseInContext We're walking down the fricking hall!]] Bitch!''
** In ''Majora's Mask'' when he starts the Anju & Kafei quest, he begins the video by playing ''Skyward Sword'' and lamenting that Majora's Mask doesn't have a run button. At the very end of the next video when he's finished with the quest, he says that it (either the in-game Heartwarming Moments or the Couple's Mask) was worth the lack of a run button.
** In Super Paper Mario, in chapter 2, he mentions his mom's EmbarrassingNickname for him when he was little, Mimikins. He also names the Ghost Shroom he uses Billy. Both were brought up again in the last few videos of the LP.
** In ''Animal Crossing New Leaf'', Chugga writes a letter to Shari that involves him [[ItMakesSenseInContext apologizing for making her a paradox zombie]]. Nearly four months of real life (and in-game) time later on Valentine's Day, a nostalgic Shari shows him the letter again, making him burst into laughter.
** Also in Animal Crossing New Leaf, on Molly's birthday Croque tells Emile that he looks like the type of person to give someone socks for their birthday. Four months later, he actually does give Croque a pair of socks for his birthday.
* BriefAccentImitation: As of 2011 has noted that he tends to slip into a vaguely Indian accent when reading out the dialogue of any 'quirky' character; in ''Majora's Mask'' he also does an Australian accent for any character who uses words like 'oi' or 'mate'.
* BringIt: [[spoiler:He goes into the last stage of ''Kid Icarus Uprising'' on the highest difficulty possible, saying the following:]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Chugga''': "...Or rather, that's what I would be saying, if I wasn't saying '''''BRING IT ON!!!'''''"]]
* BrokenPedestal: ''Pikmin 2''. At the end of the LP he decides that he thought the game was better than it was because it took him years to hunt down a copy, and wanting is better than having.
* BuffySpeak: A common occurrence like during [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy the Melty Molten Galaxy]]:
-->'''Chugga''': "Let's feed him the things. The things, stuff, things, and yaaay! "Transfoooorm!" Wow, he's flying right into the place where the two lava things connect."
** And then we have this gem from his ''Pokémon Crystal'' LP and lampshaded with the labels:
-->'''Chugga''': "It's that thing! The thing with the stuff and the thing from the thing!"
--> (as he says this, pictures of Suicune, Entei, Raikou and Tin Tower appear with arrows pointing to them and the words Chugga notes next to them. For Raikou, it's labeled as 'Other Thing' and Tin Tower's label is 'Thing they happen to be from.')
* ButThouMust: ''Never'' actually give Chugga a purely cosmetic yes/no option of this type, because he ''will'' keep choosing "[[BigNo NO!!]]" for RuleOfFunny.
** His usual response is averted at the end of SuperPaperMario's Episode 39.
-->'''Chugga:''' And you guys thought I was going to do the [[BigNo epic no]] when she was asking me if I'd go look for that girl. Who am I to turn down that kind of request? I'm not a jerk, you know.
* ButtMonkey: Trifecta the Dodrio in the ''Pokemon XD'' LP has a really bad streak of getting knocked out, due to how frail her defenses are.
* CallASmeerpARabbit: He occasionally refers to the Pikmin as carrots. It's a subtle reference, as in-game, Olimar named the little creatures after a common food back on Hocotate, Pikpik Carrots. Even better, those kind of carrots do come in yellow and blue varieties.
* CallBack: When he does a game that's in the same series as one he's already played, Chugga will usually quote something that he once said during the original LP. Or whenever he feels like.
** He nicknames his Torchic in ''Emerald'' [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Moegami]], even going as far as saying its a call back to an older LP.
*** Later on, he catches a Phanpy in the Safari Zone and names it Darmani as a reference to his ''Crystal'' LP.
** A shorter-range example, he notices that the final boss of ''Majora's Mask'' does the same dance that the Redeads from a few episodes ago did, and makes the joke again.
* CallForward: In an episode of his Let's Play of Majora's Mask, he mentions how hilarious it was to watch Tim (LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun) get to the hidden Jigglypuff fight in LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys' let's play of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
--> Chugga knows the video hasn't been uploaded, so he keeps spoilers to a minimum.
* CatchPhrase: Loads and loads.
** Whenever he says the word "NO!", he'll say it the same way Robotnik did in that one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', as seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6BL6QvKljo this video clip]].
** Recently, in Pokemon Colosseum, when describing certain Pokemon or their moves, he'll say, "It's interesting to say the least."
** "I'm not gonna lie..."
** "Nintendo Logic.", whenever something happens in the game that doesn't make sense. He states that he actually got this from someone else in his LP of ''Super Mario Sunshine''.
*** Somewhat less frequently, but he also uses "Pokémon Logic" on occasion.
** "Whaddya mean I did badly on time!?"
** "Thank you, for dying!" Whenever he defeats a particularly annoying enemy.
** "''Ex-CUSE me!''" whenever an enemy/obstacle damages him, especially during his ramblings. This is more of a reference to WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda animated series, more specifically the way Link says "Excuse me, princess".
** {{Subverted|Trope}} with "For the sheer fact" when he noticed it and stopped. [[note]]He said it five times in the [=FireRed=] aftergame, then mentioned that he would stop in Crystal, which was about six months later. So, it might still count.[[/note]]
** Subverted when he started saying "But I digress" in VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn but told himself to stop because [[LetsPlay/ClementJ642 another Let's Player]] already had that catchphrase.
** In his ''Thousand-Year Door'' LetsPlay, at the end of every chapter he would [[NoIndoorVoice yell:]]
--> '''"YOU GOT A CRYSTAL STAR!... AND YOU LEARNED THE SPECIAL MOVE [name of new special move]! END OF CHEE-APTER!"'''
*** And now he's doing it with Super Paper Mario, only instead of Crystal Stars it's Pure Hearts.
*** He will occasionally yell, not as hammy as in paper mario, that follows the pattern of "YOU GOT A [object here]" that sounds like the crystal star line.
** A bit of a lesser example is "Shiny... is... good."
** In his ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' LP, he will often say "You/I got the thiiiiiing!" upon opening a large treasure chest. He even {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this.
** In his ''[[{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 2]]'' and ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' LP's, he has taken to saying "D'oh I missed!" (referencing Wario's losing quote in VideoGame/MarioParty) whenever he misses an enemy or target. He's also been referencing ''[[VideoGame/KnyttStories Don't Eat the Mushroom]]'' whenever a poison mushroom shows up in Luigi's Mansion, even though LetsPlay/ProtonJon isn't around for him to annoy.
*** Similarly he often imitates Mario's losing quote from the same games, "Ohh nooooooo!", often in a FelonyMisdemeanor way.
** When he gets annoyed in games related to Shigeru Miyamoto, Chugga often shouts "MIYAMOTO!" out of rage.
** If he gets two of something at one time, he goes "Two for the price of one, gramma!"
** (After being jumped by an enemy) "Hey buddy how's it going!"
** From Pokemon Emerald, not an example, but a severe LampshadeHanging: "...so very nice....And I keep saying "very nice"! It's like the new "sheer fact", the new "whatever", the new..."guys", the new..."one second, time's up", the new... other overused things that I say."
** Videos often end with "I think we're gonna end things off here [sic]".
** After saying something will be easy and then screwing it up: "Shut up. Shut up."
** After using a shortcut (or more often, accidentally stumbling on a new one in the course of the LP) he shouts "[[ToolAssistedSpeedrun SPEEDRUNNING TACTICS!]]"
** When preparing for a difficult looking section of a game, you can expect to hear "Now, uh... How do I wanna go about this?"
** Chugga has a tendency to say "I'm a fan of X" in situations where most people would just say "I like X" - for example "I'm a fan of this starting moveset".
* CharacterExaggeration: Does this to ''himself''. Whenever his voice cracks or sounds a little odd while talking, he'll make fun of it and exaggerate the flaw tenfold.
* CherryTapping [=/=] CoolAndUnusualPunishment: In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]'', after he gets pissed off during a gym leader fight by his enemy repeatedly healing his star Pokemon, he deliberately does nothing the last turn, letting the residue of a burn he already inflicted finish off the enemy as an insult.
* {{Cliffhanger}}: He likes to put small ones in, often before a boss fight (or occasionally in the middle of one).
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Obviously deliberate, but in his LP of ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door'':
--> ''*As the Goomba group: *"Who's the hottie ya got there with ya?" *As himself:* "How dare you talk about Frankly like that!"''
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: In his Pokémon Emerald [=LP=], he notes that Dragonbreath almost always seems to [[StandardStatusEffects paralyze]] him when an enemy uses it, yet it rarely paralyzes an enemy when ''he'' uses it.
* CouchGag: At the end of each episode of the [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing New Leaf]], he always goes to sleep in a bed, with variables including outfit changes, furniture rearrangements, etc.
* CrackPairing: Chugga jokes about someone (or even himself) dating a [[{{Pikmin}} Wollywog]]. [[invoked]]
** Then a pairing between [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Gohma]] and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Gomess]].
** In ''Animal Crossing'', Amelia the bird apparently has feelings for Pietro the psychedelic clown sheep.
* CrossPlayer: Wanted to do this for Pokemon Fire Red, but decided not to because he knew he'd get made fun of.
* CurseCutShort: A few times. It's clear that he's holding back, because whenever he's with LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys he just lets them fly.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: On Day 39 of the [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing New Leaf]] LP, he gets color contacts at Shampoodle and got green eyes as a result, matching his green hair. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Chuggaa.
* CutenessProximity: Occasionally gets distracted by his cats doing things while he's trying to play.
** Happens when he meets the white Pikmin in Pikmin 2:
--> '''Chugga''': Aww, aren't you a cute little Voldemort impersonator... and look at that, he belched! These things are adorable.
** Taken UpToEleven during {{Okamiden}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJrI51_fn1w#t=8m43s seeing]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJrI51_fn1w#t=11m40s as ]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkt5V_uYT1A#t=5m40s how]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkt5V_uYT1A#t=14m40s many]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9LvDlfxcmE#t=3m14s things]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo8mpy7WYr4#t=18m4s in]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5q4KQNXLOM&#t=9m15s the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tq7ULCURmFo#t=14m27s game]] are capable of sending everyone into CutenessOverload.
** This is very prominent [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TD8DFHZLD70&#t=15m40s several]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GAknMjHpHk#t=17m39s times]] in ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn''.
** His second bonus video for Super Mario 64 DS depicts the Yoshi representing the losing player crying.
* DarkerAndEdgier: In recent videos, he's been making jokes that are less family-friendly than what he's typically known for.
--> ''Weed Day is on April 20th...I mean Weeding Day is April 25th''
* DeadpanSnarker: Has shades of this. Mainly rises when sarcastically contradicting something obvious he said, like how [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker getting a hundred Rupees is good.]]
** In Wind Waker, the text boxes that describe items are basically filled to the brim with this.
--> ''Telescope. Usage: One cutscene in the whole game that starts in about five seconds. I'M DEAD SERIOUS.''
--> ''Grappling Hook. Usage: Swing around to achieve your wildest dream: being Tarzan.''
--> ''Skull Hammer. Need I explain more? IT'S A FREAKING HAMMER.''
** He's expanded this now to most of the enemies in ''Pikmin 2'', he still says they're cool and unique, but he still hates them.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "We are going to be going to..."
** Sometimes he'll introduce himself with "[[CatchPhrase Hey everybody, it's Chuggaaconroy!]]" in a special way [[note]]An example being in episode 3 of Majora's Mask, when he did "Hey...ev...ery...body...it's Chuggaaconroy!" in tune with the clock's bell[[/note]], then do it again normally just a few seconds later.
** Also in Majora's Mask when he is going into the Snowhead Temple.
-->'''Chugga:''' And in this episode, with our awesome Goron rolling spikey-powers of spikes we are going to be going forth!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v5LkG-72_U#t=20m29s Near the end]] of SuperPaperMario's episode 35:
-->'''Chugga:''' Right here we have this map right here...[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment "right here we have this map right here".]] [[LampshadeHanging Redundancy, thy middle name is... Chugga.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Chugga will go through ''any'' lengths to get the most out of an LP, as shown in ''Emerald'', where he bought an E-reader card from a collector, borrowed the Sapphire version of the game from the ''administrator'' of [[{{Bulbagarden}} Bulbapedia]] with overnight shipping which he paid for by himself, then went through a very roundabout way to get the Eon Pass onto his Emerald cartridge because E-Reader support was removed from the game. The end result of this was over $140 spent on twenty minutes of gameplay ''just because he wants his fans to know what it's like''.
** He missed a Speedy Spirit on his file in LuigisMansion, so he ''started a new file and played up to the point he missed it in just to show the viewers.''
*** Also in ''Luigi's Mansion'', he didn't save at the right point, and re-fought the Clockwork Soldiers, ''his least favorite fight in the game'', to show the viewers a Gold Mouse that had a random chance of appearing in a room.
* DisneyDeath: ''98'' blue Pikmin somehow managed to pull this off in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrh4AnNpTVM#t=15m40s one episode]].
* {{Dissimile}}: "Now, I'm sure you guys are all familiar with the game of golf. [{{Beat}}] Yeah, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_nKTOlw5u4#t=3m16s this]] is nothing like that."
* DoNotTauntCthulhu: Came up during his ''Pokemon Emerald'' LP, where nearly every time he mocked [[OlympusMons Kyogre]] for not attacking him and just using Rest, it would hit him with [[OneHitKill Sheer Cold]].
* DontExplainTheJoke: As noted, he has a tendency to do this.
%%* DownerEnding: How the 23rd episode of ''Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness'' ended.
* DraggedIntoDrag: In ''Animal Crossing: New Leaf'', when he lets LetsPlay/ProtonJon decide which fanmade design he'll wear for a week. Jon being [[{{Troll}} Jon]], he chooses the Princess Peach dress.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Double-Subverted; in ''Pikmin 2'' episode 34, Chugga had a dream he was going to lose a lot of Pikmin to a rock trap, nothing happened [[spoiler:until the very end, when a bomb rock fell on top of his squad. He didn't lose any Pikmin, but he was pleased a trap fell from the ceiling on the floor he was thinking of.]]
* {{Eagleland}}er: Refers to himself as if he were Type 2. PlayedForLaughs.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In his early ''PaperMario64'' LP, he makes meta jokes that assume his audience have already played all the games in the series and are knowledgeable about them. Later on he developed his SignatureStyle of not revealing later events in games and semi-acting as though he was experiencing the plot for the first time, or at least assuming the viewers are.
** Many of his earlier videos seem to lack much of his trademark enthusiasm--he's much quieter and speaks in a much less high-pitched, more deadpan voice. Amazingly enough, the first video of his first LP seems to unintentionally lampshade this, where he says "it may be a little rough around the edges, but whose first LP isn't?"
* EmbarrassingFirstName: When he was younger, he wanted his name changed to Steve because he hated his real name, Emile. [[HilariousInHindsight Then along came his Pikmin LP...]]
** When O'Chunks calls Mario "Maria" in Super Paper Mario, Emile says, "It's okay, Mario. I'm used to it. Everyone's called me Emily my whole life."
* EmbarrassingNickname: He revels in Super Paper Mario that his mother called him Mimikins when he was three.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: {{In-universe}}, Chugga often hypes up minor characters in games he likes. Examples include Jim from ''Majora's Mask'', the President from ''Pikmin 2'' and Miror B. from ''Pokemon Colosseum''.
* EpicFail: Often on the BreatherLevel, and [[LampshadeHanging points out]] that it's probably the main reason people watch him.
** Didn't happen on camera, but Chugga mentioned in the beginning of part 53 of his Earthbound LP that he cut his finger on a soap dispenser.
** Another off-camera incident, during his Pikmin 2 LP, he tells us an interesting story about how he had one just earlier. He was used to using a laptop, but since it was in for repairs he used a desktop monitor instead. However, he was so used to just closing his laptop instead of pressing the power button on a monitor that he actually grabbed the computer screen and [[DamnYouMuscleMemory flipped it down onto his keyboard]]. Keep in mind his monitor is pretty darn big. (His computer's okay, though.)
** In Super Luigi Galaxy, he facepalms himself with the ''Nunchuck.''
-->'''Chugga:''' "Ow! Nintendo...!"
** According to Twitter, he got stabbed through the foot by the prongs on a power adapter. [[AmusingInjuries He doesn't seem to really care though.]]
** Episode 29 of Majora's Mask has the Let's Play curse in full effect, as the doggy racetrack minigame that normally only takes him one or two tries takes him an ''entire hour and a half'' to do. Luckly, the dog would usually place between 3rd and 5th so he didn't lose all of his money betting on them.
** In Episode 34 of Majora's Mask, he mentions a huge error in the [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer Prima Player's Guide]] for that game. In the Great Bay Temple section, the guide recommends you play the ''[[ResetButton Song of Time]]'' to get back to the entrance, not the Song of Soaring. You can guess how well that went for everybody who owned that guide. [[invoked]]
** Again from Majora's Mask, this one a running fail between episodes 42 and 43: He managed to trigger two switches perfectly on his first try in Stone Tower Temple, causing a chest containing a Stray Fairy to become accessible. However, the room he was in had two chests, and he mistook the switches as causing the other chest to appear. To top it all off, he missed seeing one of the chests (the one he thought he'd made appear), even when he went to the platform that chest was on to collect Rupees, leading him to conclude he had screwed it up. The post-recording edit text he puts up on screen during episode 42 berates his player self for being so stupid. Episode 43 has the traditional [[SchmuckBait "Turn Your Headphones Down"]] warning pop up moments before his player self finally figures out where the chest was.
** In ''Pokemon Emerald'' Episode 1, he lost the first rival battle on an unlucky critical hit.
** Chuggaaconroy attempts to play Megaman 9, where HilarityEnsues. Then again, considering that he says he had never played a megaman game before in his life, this kind of performance was to be expected.
--> '''Chugga''': For the love of Pringles in a bag! What the hell?!''
** When battling Miror B. in Pokemon Colosseum, he fails to snag a Shadow Pokemon for the first time simply because he was too lazy to buy more ultra balls.
** This has become something of a RunningGag in this LP, since he's failed to snag any of the boss' Shadow Pokemon so far.
** In Super Mario 64 DS, he ''loses to Koopa the Quick''.
** In the final dungeon of Link's Awakening, he insists that it's a good idea to hit a crystal switch early to remove a painful obstacle later in the dungeon. What he forgot was that the dungeon forces you to leave it at one point, thus resetting the switch. He even pauses the video in post editing to warn us about this.
** In ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', he dies twice in the lunar sanctum, the first time is justified because he was fighting Dark Pit on intensity 7, a fight he considers to be very difficult. The second time, however, he dies to a ''Lurchthorn'', an enemy that (along with other worm type enemies) he's described nigh-constantly as being "a joke" and " nearly harmless".
* EveryoneHasStandards: Chugga was a bit taken aback in ''SuperMario64DS'' when some fans complained that, when playing as Wario, he hadn't been saying "D'oh I missed" ''often enough''.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Monkey logic!]] Like Nintendo Logic, only 'monkier'.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: His favourite thing in ''SuperPaperMario'' is Bowser's wildly spinning, flailing arms in his 'surprised' animation.
* EvilLaugh: Does this sometimes. And it's always freaking hilarious.
** Subverted at times in his playthroughs of Pokémon games; usually, if a character goes "[[EvilLaugh Fufufufufu]]" he will read it as "[[ClusterFBomb Eff you eff you eff you eff you eff you]]".
* EvilSoundsDeep: Inverted with his [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Grodus]] voice, which is instead a [[Franchise/HarryPotter Voldemort]]-esque high rasp.
* EvilTwin: Seen on a facebook page known as Evil Chuggaaconroy. Apparently inspired by Evil_Notch on Twitter.
* ExactWords: Chugga said he would never Let's Play ''Super Mario 64'' or ''Super Mario Galaxy''. He has Let's Played ''Super '''Luigi''' Galaxy'' and ''Super Mario 64 '''DS''''' though.
* EyeScream: ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', Chapter 7, Episode 24. He described a time when he was stabbed in the eye with a pencil.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:F-O]]
* TheFaceless: Used to be one of these for a long while, but is starting to avert it more lately, with TheSpeedGamers and an interview or two. He even includes a picture of himself as a FreezeFrameBonus when talking about the AR cards in a ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4_P_vHtb5c video]].
* FacePalm: In Luigi's Mansion, he says to make sure a Boo doesn't go in a certain hallway. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Said Boo does go in said hallway.]] HilarityEnsues.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Chugga didn't snag the first three boss Pokemon in his ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' LP. He ran out of Poké Balls against Miror B's Sudowoodo, Dakim's Entei was defeated when its partner Camerupt used [[ForMassiveDamage Earthquake]], [[TemptingFate ("OK, Camerupt is confused, let's hope it does something stupid")]] and Venus' Suicune committed suicide with recoil damage.
** His luck got better later, as he was able to catch these pokemon in the rematches, but the trope came back with a vengeance against the final shadow pokemon. Chugga had used Surf on Marshall's turn because he had nothing better to do and Explode on Walnut's turn to defeat Gyarados and Milotic, and bring out the Shadow Togetic alone. Gyarados went first and used Earthquake... which was a critical hit and defeated Milotic. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Cue]] [[OhCrap epic]] [[BigNo freak]][[RapidFireNo out]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: ''{{Okami}}'', in-universe, {{lampshaded}} -- "Don't take any of your problems head on, make them the Sun God's problem, mm-hmm!"
** In ''MajorasMask'': "Remember kids, if your best friend is going crazy, [[KillItWithFire light them on fire.]]"
* {{Fanboy}}: Of [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Flannery]], if at least to use his wording on the matter. He's also convinced she SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove.
** He is this for the ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' and ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series, and the games ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. If you don't know whether or not he likes one of those, you have not watched more than five of his videos.
* FanNickname: In-universe: In the Princess Peach StealthBasedMission segments in the first two ''Paper Mario'' games, he refers to her as [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Peach]].
** In his Pikmin LP he gives the names Steve, Bob and Joe to the red, yellow and blue pikmin respectively.
** In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64DS'' he refers to the level Hazy Maze Cave as "Hazy Mazy Cavey" as that's what he read it as when he was a child. (He also misread the name of the Tox Box enemies as 'Toy boxes').
* FanOfTheUnderdog: In ''PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' Chuggaa stood up for [[ButtMonkey Trifecta the Dodrio]] and stated that he did not regret having it on his team, though he really does hope it can prove its worth in the postgame.
* FirstNameBasis: He's only shown his full name once, as he prefers to go either by Chuggaaconroy or his first name Emile. (For the curious, his full name is Emiliano Rodolfo Rosales-Birou.)
* FissionMailed: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiYswFVR0Os#t=1m28s Episode 33]] of ''Okamiden'' has this.
* {{Flanderization}}:
** In his playthroughs of Pokémon [=FireRed=] and Crystal, he occasionally caught legendaries in regular Poké Balls when he throws them for no real reason, other than running out of Ultra Balls. In Emerald, he starts trying to ''force'' this to happen by throwing all sorts of weak Poké Balls at every legendary he encounters. [[spoiler:And even though it takes a while, he always catches them in a weak ball, at near-full health, or ''both''.]]
** On his older playthroughs, whenever he made a really bad pun, which was not as often, he would be ashamed or at least laugh at its stupidity. Nowadays, he is widely considered the king of bad puns by many fellow let's players, and takes full pride in that, dropping them much more consistently.
* FlatWhat: In episode four of his [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]] LP, he [[AccidentalInnuendo calls Jim a]] [[HoYay majestic stallion]]. There's a quick black screen with Chugga giving one of these right after.
** Happened in the fourth bonus episode of Pokémon Colosseum when the game suddenly informed him that his disc could not be read.
** Happens in Episode 27 of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]''. Upon realizing that the crystal switch needed to be hit, Emile delivers the flattest what he has ever delivered in any of his Let's Plays.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Chugga tends to be very tight-lipped regarding future [=LPs=], but he'll occasionally insert clues about his next LP into his current one. For example, his ''Pokémon [=FireRed=]'' LP begins with a musical cue from the following LP, ''Super Mario Sunshine''.
** The final episode from Chugga's ''Super Luigi Galaxy'' LP also contains a [[TheStinger Stinger]] about his following LP: ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''.
** A long-range example: in his first episode of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' he keeps the viewers guessing about what the game might be, listing several Gamecube games he might be doing, two of which are ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness Pokémon XD]]'' - both of which he indeed LP'd several years later.
** In ''Mario 64 DS'', Chuggaa named episode 6 "The War's End", which is the same as the title of the final chapter in ''Kid Icarus Uprising''.
** A sneaky short-term example. In the beginning of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4_P_vHtb5c Chapter 18]] video for ''Kid Icarus: Uprising'', he has the AR cards for Pit and Lady Palutena fight each other. [[spoiler: At the end of Chapter 18, Pit, who has been out for the last three years, learns that Lady Palutena has turned against both him and humanity.]]
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou[=/=]ParanoiaFuel: This is starting to happen, not to the audience but to ''Chugga himself'', with Steve crossing over into other games and invading his other [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]].
** In LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys' ''Subspace Emissary'', LetsPlay/ProtonJon points out that a red leaf Pikmin appears with Olimar when in statue form, and Captain Falcon kills all the Pikmin except a red leaf on his first appearance, leading to the joke that this is actually Steve come to torment Chugga.
** In his ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]'' LetsPlay, he is challenged by a trainer named Steve who warns him "Don't forget what you've done to me! I'll make it so you can't forget!"
* FreezeFrameBonus: In the Story Intro for ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', when a bored Luigi exclaims "KERBLOOEY" while [[TemptingFate wishing some excitement would come up soon]], Salvatore from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' briefly pops up on the screen. He does it again in episode 19, this time with [=SuperJeenius'=] avatar when the word supergenius appears in the game's text.
** In Episode 18 of the ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' LP, he flashes a picture of himself holding a Monoeye via AugmentedReality.
** Day 6 of the ''[[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing: New Leaf]]'' LP has him talk about how annoying Sea Bass are, while flashing a picture of a "X, X Everywhere" meme picture.
* FridgeBrilliance: InUniverse, this is why he defends [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Na]][[ExpositionFairy vi]].
* FridgeHorror: An InUniverse example in ''Majora's Mask'':
--> '''Chugga''': Wait...If a mask contains a spirit, then ''why do you have [[SuperMarioBros Mario's]] face on your backpack?''
* FridgeLogic: {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d whenever Chugga points out "Nintendo Logic". [[invoked]]
** A lot of his humor is based on doing this to his own voiceover, saying something before pausing to really think about what he said and why it's wrong -- sometimes leading to VerbalBackspace and ThatCameOutWrong.
* FreudianSlip: Quoted word for word in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=BiEpQbtyQyU#t=150s Episode 40]] of his [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask]] LP. His Slip? ...Well, you and Chugga both may need some BrainBleach after that particular thought.
* FullyAutomaticClipShow: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCK0jcHKsmc This fan-made clip show]] made by thelisoncruz features a compilation of Chugga's many running gags and strange noises he made throughout the years. It was released during the {{Okami}} LP.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In a ''Super Luigi Galaxy'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n-u2WB7VLo video]], after Luigi obtains a star, a bug in the background can be seen wandering right off a ledge. Chugga even lampshades this with a caption pointing this out.
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmagMTaD6_8&feature=sub Day 7]] of ''{{Pikmin}}'', he accidentally knocks several of his Pikmin off the ledge during the Burrowing Snagret fight. They start killing Wogpoles and harvesting their bodies while Chugga's attention is elsewhere.
** At one point in the ''Wind Waker'' LP, a bird is seen paused in the middle of his attack animation right behind Link, who is performing a song on the Wind Waker.
** ItGetsBetter. [[invoked]] Chugga thought he lost 98 blue Pikmin due to all but 1 not showing up. He didn't notice the one. So while he's yelling [[BigNo NO NO]], a blue Pikmin walks to the onion.
** A bird humping a flower in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''.
** A minor one in Episode 23 of his Pikmin 2 LP; while he's busy fighting a Breadbug in the foreground, another one from earlier in the episode can be seen in the background, being dragged towards the ship by a purple Pikmin.
** During the intro of one of his VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine videos, an NPC can be seen running around while on fire at the beach.
** In Majora's Mask, after he [[spoiler:frees the Deku Princess, the monkey gets dunked again.]]
** Bowser doing... [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything something]] to the description-box in SuperPaperMario.
* GenderBender: Notes that in Pokémon Emerald, there is a discrepancy in the gender ratio between Azurill and its evolved form Marill. Azurill has a 25/75 male/female ratio. Marill has an even 50/50. Chugga's conclusion?
--> '''Chugga:''' In other words, it grows a [[PrecisionFStrike dick.]]
* GenderBlenderName: Teddy the ''female'' [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Slakoth]]. He does [[LampshadeHanging comment on this]] when he catches her (and a couple times later).
** [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Tabitha]], a member of Team Magma, who is ''male.'' Chuggaconroy [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this a lot, to the point of calling him "The Girlyman" and using a feminine voice for him at one point albeit a silly one.
* GeniusDitz: On one hand, he rambles and is known for making really bizarre, spacey comments, not to mention his AttentionDeficitOohShiny. On the other hand, he [[ShownTheirWork Shows His Work]] frequently, and has displayed knowledge about a number of unusual things, like spaghettification and Bible stories.
* GentleGiant: Though not exactly giant, he's 6'2", 157 pounds and very kind.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Not so much in that he doesn't swear, but after the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' LP, you can hear him [[CurseCutShort stopping]] [[LastSecondWordSwap himself]] from saying more adult words than before. But in comparison to his own [=LPs=], this trope is averted when with LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.
** When he was co-commenting on one of LetsPlay/AttackingTucans' Majora's Mask videos, he lampshaded this by mentioning the trope by name.
* GotMeDoingIt: In Super Paper Mario, after reading Merlee's RhymesOnADime wordplay, he starts accidentally rhyming several of his own sentences for the rest of the episode, berating himself every time he notices.
* GrowingTheBeard: In-Universe, sorta. He says SuperPaperMario starts getting better in Chapter 3.
* HappinessInSlavery: Apparently, he "enjoyed labour" during Chapter 2-3 of SuperPaperMario.
* HeelFaceTurn: Happens to Chugga's Zangoose in ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' (and by extension all the other Shadow Pokémon he caught in that game and ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'')
* HeliumSpeech: In his Thousand Year Door LP, he used this during the Chapter 6 Bowser Interlude.
* HereWeGoAgain: Chugga sighed when he saw 5 red leaf Pikmin which he called Steve -- which has a '''''HUGE''''' fandom -- knowing people will squeal over it.
* HeroesPreferRedHeads: We find out in his ''Crystal'' LP that Chugga has a thing for red hair beauties.
* HeroicBSOD: He experiences a serious one in Episode 27 of his Pikmin 2 LP, after losing over 60 Pikmin to a Volatile Dweevil.
* HilariousOuttakes: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N05tws1q-N0 These failed attempts]] at beating his Rival in ''Pokémon [=FireRed=]''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XV8RGcgw8U Another video]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpKff0qtZKA and yet another]] of outtakes, these not all from one game but from various games that he'd played over the course of the previous year when these videos were released.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqiNWnIKTjE&feature=relmfu Here's]] a video of his failed attempts against the Steel Mechorilla from ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}''. The video is ''over ten minutes long'', which is probably [[ThatOneBoss saying something.]]
** This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpKff0qtZKA&feature=relmfu video]] contains Chugga's only death in ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' which he never showed in the original playthrough. When he fights Ness's Nightmare, he says to be sure to watch out for the statue's PK Flash since it can one hit KO you. 1 second later, the boss uses the exact thing and it immediately kills him. However this forshadows the many failings and deaths to come, because of the dreaded Let's Play curse.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard:
** The only reason Steve bothers him is because fans won't stop talking about him. The only reason fans won't stop is because Chugga kept bringing it up afterwards and indulging opportunities to mention him in later [=LPs=]. For as much as Steve haunts Chugga, a lot of it is Chugga's own fault. Since this is oddly ignorant of Chugga, it's possible he's just trying to ham it up and play it for laughs.
** Chugga loved talking to Shari in ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing New Leaf'', despite (and at least because) her spacy dialogue and the character he had made for her creeped him out. As it turns out, the number of times you speak to an animal is what monitors who your "best friend" is. [[spoiler: So on both Valentines day ''and'' his Birthday, Shari is the one running the show for him, leading to a BigNo both times.]]
* HollywoodToneDeaf: InUniverse, he considers himself to be this. He constantly refers to himself as "the worst singer ever" and "the most tone-deaf person on the planet," and apologizes whenever he starts singing. He frequently promises never to sing again, but [[StatusQuoIsGod that never seems to work out...]]
* HopeSpot: In his Emerald LP, his newest {{Mon}} Altair managed to just barely knock out Norman's Slaking, when it was the only pokemon Chugga had left. Chugaa relaxed and celebrated, thinking he'd beaten the Gym Leader... then he realized [[OhCrap Norman still had one pokemon left]].
* HypocriticalHumor: Making fun of Pokemon (Emerald) for using bad puns for names.
** In Pokemon Emerald, Chugga asks a Team Aqua grunt if he "makes videos of himself playing video games? I pity you."
** In Pikmin 2 he tells the viewers to get their minds out of the gutter. This is Lampshaded.
** In Pokemon Crystal, when he finds out a trainer's Starmie has Rapid Spin, he says "Who teaches their Starmie Rapid Spin?" despite the fact that Methane (his Wheezing) and Darmani (his Donphan) know Tackle and Mud Slap respectively. Some of the comments lampshade this.
* IconicOutfit: Chugga's striped polo shirt. He's usually portrayed in fanart with one because in RealLife, he is very rarely seen in public without one.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: The various episodes of his ''MOTHER 3'' LP are mostly named after the songs in the game.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: According to his now-deleted 50 Facts video (according to Chugga, some of those facts were seriously outdated), he's actually autistic but tries "as hard as [he] can to act like a normal person because [he] always dreamed of being one as a child." Subverted, as he was actually misdiagnosed.
* InMemoriam: Though not dead, he has one for the Tentacool he catches in an episode of ''Emerald'' when he decides to leave her in his character's PC for the whole game and not on his team.
-->ACOOLTENT
-->Episode 7 - Episode 7
** BackFromTheDead: Mentioned by name in Episode 41 when he starts using it as a slave for Dive. Later, he returns to Slateport City and visits the Name Rater offscreen. Enter ACOOLSLAVE!
** On a more serious note, Chugga dedicated Chapter 6 of his MOTHER 3 LP towards [[spoiler:Hinawa (Lucas's mother who died early in the game), dead relatives/friends of his viewers, and his uncle.]]
** In ''Super Paper Mario'', [[spoiler: in Chapter 8 after the presumed deaths of Bowser, Peach, and Luigi, he puts a picture of the respective hero over his video ending sequence, giving off definite vibes of this.]]
* InsaneTrollLogic: Nintendo Logic.
* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: Lampshaded in episode 14 of ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion''. "Why can't I just burn down these boards to get at whatever's past there?"
* InterfaceSpoiler: At the end of ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', he put the usual series-end "previous" and "playlist" buttons at the top of the screen during the credits, complete with annotation links. [[spoiler:Averted, however; they disappear when Hades rips through said credits. The actual end plate has the "Next" button as well.]]
* {{Irony}}: As a hardcore Nintendo fan who has Lped games on every one of their systems, his first game was Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
** He has never beaten the original SuperMarioBros despite him being a ''big'' fan of the series.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPay: In ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', he can't decide whether Agate Village is pronounced a-gate or a-gah-tay, and randomly switches between the two.
* ItsPopularNowItSucks: InUniverse. While Chugga isn't ''nearly'' as hateful as practiced examples of this trope, he will often proudly state when he's unimpressed with something popular, and other times gush over obscure things. Only a mild example though, there are popular things (usually popular games) he still likes.
* JerkAss: Croque from [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing New Leaf]], which is why Chugga hates him. Croque taunts Chugga frequently and responds to everything with "as if". To a lesser extent, Pango.
** KarmaHoudini: They never seem to receive any comeuppance for it. [[spoiler: Until Shamrock Day where LaserGuidedKarma hits and Croque falls into a pitfall]].
* {{Keet}}: He calls himself "spastic and always bouncing off the walls." LetsPlay/ProtonJon pointed out in one of his streams that Chugga is hyper when there's two or more people around him.
* KindheartedCatLover: He has two cats named [[VideoGame/{{Mother}} Teddy]] and Franchise/{{Kirby}}. He also once had another cat named [[VideoGame/JakandDaxter Jak]].
* LamePunReaction
** In Episode 5 of his ''Super Mario Sunshine'' Let's Play, after noting that the wires attached to the windmills are likely power lines, he comes across some flower platforms that also have wires attached to them.
-->'''Chugga''': What, are those flowers generating power, too? I guess they must be using [[NewAgeRetroHippie flower power]]. Ohhhh, that was a horrible pun.
** "GO TO HELL! GO TO SHELL! WHATEVER! [{{Beat}}] That is easily the worst pun I have ever made."
* LargeHam: I ''dare'' you to find one episode where he doesn't send his mic levels careening into the red zone.
* LargeHamAnnouncer: YOU GOT A [[PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor CRYSTAL STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR]][=/=][[SuperPaperMario PURE HEAAAAAAAAAART]]!!!!!!
* LaughingMad: A few moments, but a particularly memorable one occurs in Episode 8 of ''Emerald'', where he lost all but one of his Pokemon to the Gym Leader's Makuhita. In desperation, he sends out his level 3 Zigzagoon (which he'd caught purely for the purpose of teaching "useless" HM moves). The moment his Zigzagoon entered the field, the poison Acooltent had inflicted ended up knocking the Makuhita out, netting Chugga the win. The Zigzagoon got enough EXP to jump from level 3 to level 7, by the way, and Chugga just kept laughing throughout the whole level-up process.
** His LP of ''[[PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Thousand Year Door]]'' he also gets a rather reltable one, when fighting a random Ice-puff in the process of 2 turns he messes up and the RNG decides to go against so that he ends up almost half dead against one enemy. It cuts halfway and the next video opens to him still laughing madly.
* LavaIsBoilingKoolAid: Lampshaded in Majora's Mask Episode 41 after a treasure chest spawns in the middle of a lava pool:
--> '''Chugga''': Okay, seriously! That thing is made of wood! How does that not burst into flames?
* LetsPlay: He is most known for these, although they're not the only videos that he's made.
* [[HeroesWantRedheads Let's Players Want Redheads]]: He was devastated when he learned that [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Jasmine]] wasn't an actual redhead.
** In his Super Paper Mario LP, he stated that he liked Peach better when she was a redhead, which she was in her 8-bit form.
** His [[PerverseSexualLust fanboyism]] towards Kumatora was a running gag during the ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'' LP.
* LimitedWardrobe: Nearly every time he appears on camera, he's wearing a blue striped polo shirt. This has not gone without note by his fans, who have {{Flanderized}} his love of polo shirts. In one LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys vid, he [[FandomNod references this]] and then attempts to [[CargoShip make out with his shirt.]]
* LostForever: His videos of Pokémon Platinum, which consisted of the important fights (Rival battles, fighting Team Galactic, Gym Leaders, Elite Four, and Frontier Brains) and capturing the legendary Pokémon.
* LuckySeven: The Phanpy in his ''Pokémon Crystal'' Let's Play had all its stats at 7.
* MadeOfIndestructium: What he thinks the generator on the Space Pirate's ship in Kid Icarus is made from.
--> '''Chuggaa:''' Though it appears to be made of glass, it's probably made of some kind of... [[BuffySpeak awesome space... plexi-glass...]] with diamond crusted sheen, or something like that.
* ManChild: In his Five-Year Anniversary video, he self-defines himself as "A five-year-old in a twenty-one-year-old body."
* ManipulativeEditing: Unintentional example in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XV8RGcgw8U this outtakes video]] due to an audio skip:
--> '''Chugga:''' And just because we can be an -- IDIOT!
* ManlyTears: His description of the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Circus Leader's Mask]].
* MasterOfNone: He sees Sharla as this, since some of her aspects are performed better by later party members.
--> [[BadassBystander Jim]] would be so proud of us!
* MeaningfulName: His Yoshi partner in ''The Thousand Year Door'' is called 'Scrap'. There are two reasons why: the first one is because he's a small fighter, the second is because [[FridgeBrilliance he's a scrap of paper.]]
** In ''Crystal'' his shiny Koffing is nicknamed 'Methane' because it's blue [[note]]as a result of being shiny[[/note]], a gas, and explosive [[note]]it recently learned Selfdestruct[[/note]].
* MemeticMolester: Considers VideoGame/{{Luigi|sMansion}} to be into children, after the plumber makes a sketchy remark in Luigi's Mansion.[[note]]While in the twins' room and examining a picture of one of the kids, Luigi said "I wonder if there's any goodies in there." Actually, Chugga's aim was a little off, so he was aiming at a drawer, meaning Luigi was wondering if there were any goodies in the ''drawer''.[[/note]] [[invoked]]
* MillionToOneChance: In his ''Pokémon Crystal'' LP, he encounters a Shiny Koffing, and even states the odds of finding said Pokémon (1/8192). What makes it [[ContrivedCoincidence coincidental]] was that he stated that he wanted a Koffing for his team before said Shiny appeared.
** The capture of Latias. [[spoiler:He caught her, a Level 50 Pokémon at full health, with a ''Nest Ball''. The chance of that happening is ''0.4%''.]]
** His capture of Groudon before that counts as it had been caught under very improbable conditions.
* MindScrew: The gravity of some planets in the ''Super Luigi Galaxy'' playthrough fell into this for him.
** In episode 17 of his Pikmin 2 Let's Play, his brain was broken as a result of a red Pikmin randomly dying shortly after being plucked from the ground. After the boss was dead. And there was nothing else to kill the Pikmin in the room [[note]]The Pikmin fell victim to a rare glitch where collision pushed it through a wall; when this happens, the game kills them to avoid freaking out trying to fix the issue[[/note]].
** He invokes this in one episode of ''Super Luigi Galaxy'' where he says something, then says he's going to get a lot of comments about it because viewers will pause the video and comment then continue the video and hear him say this and get their minds blown.
* MisterExposition: Combined with ShownTheirWork. He shows extensive information on Pokémon in all ''Pokémon'' games, including their stats, location, evolutions if they have them, and much more.
** In Okami, he explained all of the references to Japanese mythology throughtout the game.
* MoodWhiplash: In the ending of his ''Thousand-Year Door'' LP, after a heartwarming scene that cuts to a beautiful shot of Rogueport in the morning:
--> ''"And to think, Rogueport looks like this every morning." ({{Beat}}) "Like it's in a sea of piss."''
** In his ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokemon FireRed]]'' LP, Chugga [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO6uKxNilbQ#t=8m54s was annoyed]] with the trainers and muttered that he wished they'd all die, when he happened upon a trainer who was mourning his recently deceased Onix, his mood took a U-turn.
* MostAnnoyingSound: 'In-universe', so to speak. Chugga ''hates'' [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask the Woodfall Temple's music and the noise that Odolwa makes]].
* SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: The screeching noise that the [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Grabbing Ghosts]] make just tickles Chugga. [[invoked]]
** Claims this in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]'' whenever he gets to do the voice of ''Mmaxie from Teamm Mmagmma!'' [[invoked]]
* MotorMouth: He can speak really fast when he wants to, especially during his introductions or freakouts.
* MST3KMantra: He often points out ridiculous parts of the game, calling them "Nintendo Logic". [[invoked]]
* MundaneMadeAwesome: His reaction to a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGO6t-BjerE#t=10m54s kung-fu wolf]].
** SPINNING IN ''CIRCLES''!
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Played for laughs in ''SuperPaperMario,'' when witnessing Fracktail's death animation. He comes to the conclusion that Fracktail was a robot with a heart, and thus could love.
--> [[ChewingTheScenery He could love... HE COULD LOVE! I HAVE KILLED SOMETHING THAT COULD LOOOOOVE!]]
* [[NeverTrustATrailer Never Trust An End-of-Episode Preview]]: The end of his semifinal Pokemon Emerald episode shows a dramatic reveal of [[spoiler:[[BrickJoke Pokemaniac Steve]] wanting a rematch]], leaving a {{Cliffhanger}} for the finale. [[spoiler:In the finale, Chugga beats Steve in under half a minute and spends most of the actual episode fighting [[BonusBoss Steven]].]]
* NiceGuy: Emile is very sweet and kind, even if he is very hyper and boisterous. He is also very generous to his friends.
* NightmareFace: Chugga is convinced that [[PokemonXD Lovrina]] has one of these.
* NightmareFuel: He claims the only genuinely scary thing in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' is Luigi's OffModel face icon in the save screen when seen in high video quality. [[invoked]]
* NoDialogueEpisode: For the most part anyway. During the second half of the {{Okami}} finale, Chugga only said one thing towards the beginning of the battle and spends every other moment in silence.
** There are later episodes of ''Mother 3'', as well as the latter half of Episode 49 of ''SuperPaperMario'' and the latter half of Episode 6 of ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. These examples are primarily to punctuate the in-game TearJerker moments.
* NoIndoorVoice: He can get really loud when he's excited.
** LetsPlay/ProtonJon revealed during one of his livestreams that when Chugga yells during Runaway Guys [=LPs=], they mute his mic. What the viewers hear is him being picked up by ''everyone else's'' mic, and it's still incredibly loud, often to the point that warnings pop up in the video to turn down the volume.
* NonSequitur: From his ''Paper Mario'' LP, we can quote:
--> ''While standing next to this chest, for no apparent reason, I am going to say... picklefishlips.''
** This actually comes back whenever he refers to said chest ('The picklefishlips chest is empty'), making it a RunningGag.
* NothingIsScarier: In episode 10 of ''Super Mario 64 DS'', he tries to show off the infamous biting piano enemy, only for the piano to remain a normal piano when he tries to set it off, and ironically this creeps him out ''more''.
* NWordPrivileges: Several times, he's claimed he's allowed to make fun of the French because he's part French himself. In ''SuperPaperMario,'' he then goes on to say that [[FrenchJerk pretty much]] [[GayParee all the stereotypes]] are true.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Taken UpToEleven during the ''Majora's Mask'' LP in regards to things that will be important later in the game.
** In ''Thousand Year Door'', he deliberately commentates as though he doesn't know how the mysteries in certain chapters will inevitably play out, even [[spoiler: letting his partner eat a cake he knew was poisoned.]]
** Reaches rather ridiculous heights in his ''MOTHER 3'' LP where he seems to be genuinely confused when Boney is [[PaperThinDisguise disguised by wearing a T-shirt and a cap as well as standing upright.]] Que massive surprise on his part when the "dog-like dude" removes his disguise in the next chapter and it turns out to be Boney.
* OhCrap: In his ''Wind Waker'' LP, he threw a bomb at a door. It bounced off and it landed in front of him.
-->'''Chugga''': ([[BeatPanel Pause]]) ''OhCrap''!
** This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XV8RGcgw8U&feature=player_detailpage#t=209s outtake]]
** Part 31 of his ''Pokémon Crystal'' LP.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrh4AnNpTVM&feature=youtu.be&t=15m39s This]] little gem from his ''Pikmin'' LP.
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_630574&feature=iv&src_vid=rEUDFQu_W2c&v=zrfrLKhBMKs Episode 14]] of his MajorasMask LP 5 minutes in.
** There's one in his ''Pokémon Crystal''-run, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3fFB3VEIFPI#t=76s Part 5 of the Johto Finale]]:
-->"Okay, I'm... not like I'm helping it. Not like I'm helping all the situation of- [[OhCrap OOOOOH CRAAAAAP]]!!!!"
** And another good one in ''Pokémon Colosseum'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGUQ9dJQj1g Episode 29]]. Both Dakim's Pokémon use [[ThePowerOfTheSun SolarBeam]], a [[GreenThumb Grass]] type move. [[MakingASplash Quag]][[DishingOutDirt sire]] is on the field. Both Water and Ground are weak to Grass. Cue Chugga panicking slightly.
** Episode 9 of ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' has him [[http://youtu.be/v9UnqaLWSuk?t=13m49s running for dear life]] from a BossInMooksClothing.
* OnceASeason: Changes his channel icon each time he begins a new LP to a picture that corresponds to the game he's playing. Starting in 2012, his icons are now always variations on the same '[=Cc=]' logo, but with a thematic style fitting the game he's LP'ing. (These are designed by [[StephenPlays Stephen and Mal]]).
** Every LP he gets sick somewhere towards the early or mid game and has to take a break. Every time. This is mostly due to major gaming events happening during the [=LPs=] and it's not just restricted to Chugga (NCS and Lucahjin also very commonly have illness-related breaks after cons). The Pax Pox/E3 illness/Con-cold is not kind.
* OpeningNarration: Almost always opens with "[[CatchPhrase Hey everybody, it's chuggaaconroy!]] And welcome back to Let's Play (insert game here)! In the last episode, we (brief summary of the previous episode). In this episode..."
** Nowadays he typically says something off topic about where he is in the game, then gets to his traditional narration.
-->'''Chugga''': You are now seeing a visual representation of Luigi's personal space. Please do not invade it. Hey everybody, it's chuggaaconroy! Welcome back to...
-->'''Chugga''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext I like how they wrote "food" backwards.]] Hey everybody, it's chuggaaconroy! Welcome back to...
** Chugga's intro for episode 3 of Majora's Mask was actually '''in sync''' with the clock dings. Complete with random pauses and video zoom out.
* OverlyLongGag: Starting in Chapter 7 Episode 18 of his ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' LP, when the characters ingest the [[MushroomSamba psychedelic mushrooms]], Chugga speaks in a high-pitched stoned voice for the entire sequence: a total of 14 minutes. Apparently the joke was annoying to so many that Chugga uploaded a second version that mutes it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:P-Z]]
* PanderingToTheBase: InUniverse. Chugga feels like he's doing this any time he (positively) mentions Steve the Pikmin after his Let's Play of Pikmin 1.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord: From his ''[[{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 2]]'' LP, one of the commenters gave Chugga "dezirewolfed" as the verb describing the Withering Blowhog's act of turning flower Pikmin back to leaf Pikmin.
* PerformanceAnxiety: Like all Let's Players, Chugga suffers from the "Let's Play curse", where he plays worse on-camera than off-camera. [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] every single time it happens.
* PetPeeveTrope: PaletteSwap, and specifically populating the last stage of an RPG with PaletteSwap [[EliteMook super]] versions of the {{Mooks}} we've already seen rather than original enemies. He says the lack of this trope in Franchise/{{Pokemon}} is one reason he likes it so much. [[invoked]]
* PetTheDog: The [[{{Pikmin}} Waterwraith]] actually let Chugga/Olimar off easy on a few occasions in a row in Pikmin's [[ThatOneLevel Submerged Castle]]. Of course, Chugga lampshades it.
* PieInTheFace: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DX5MfMZkTLc Chugga was on the receiving end of one]] during Website/TheSpeedGamers 2010 Mario Marathon. He was enjoying himself to the point that he [[spoiler: forced himself back into the pie.]]
* PinkMeansFeminine: Chugga uses a feminine voice for one of the [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 pink bomb-ombs]]
* PoesLaw: For April Fools Day 2009, he did an intentionally poor [=LP=] of ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'', which was actually a parody of all the poor quality [=LP's=] that particular game has received for some reason. Apparently, a lot of people took it seriously; he later felt it necessary to add a caption stating that his work was a parody and not a real [=LP=].
** In ''Majora's Mask'', Chuggaa made an Unregistered Hypercam 2 joke. When he was guesting on the TGS podcast, [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] brought up a similar incident and Chuggaa mentioned that way too many fans thought it was real.
* PointyHairedBoss: Seems to view [[{{Pikmin}} The President of Hocotate Freight]] as being somewhere between this and a CorruptCorporateExecutive
** RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The other half of the time, this is how he views the president. [[ArtificialStupidity To a fault]].
* PrecisionFStrike: After correctly guessing the lineup of a random trainer during Part 8 of ''[=FireRed=]'':
--> '''Chugga''': Moment of truth, guys. Moment of truth. Moment of truth, it's a Machop. I am a total fucking nerd.
** During his ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door'' LP, after destroying the first Jabbi hive fortress:
--> '''"NOT SO PUNY ANYMORE, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCHES]]!"'''
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aT1-_pBosM episode 56]] of Chugga's ''Okamiden'', Kurow says something obvious, to which Chugga replies:
--> '''Chugga''': Pardon my English, but ''no shit'', Kurow!
* PreviouslyOn: The first minute of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIFhvZ3FbYM this installment]] of his ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' [=LP=], a random assortment of out-of-context snippets from the previous episode.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TheMagicCamcorder?feature=mhum This user]] took the same concept and made three more "Recap" episodes from chuggaaconroy's work.
* PungeonMaster: He's the patron saint of this in the LP community as it is, but he boasts of being even more of one during ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'', due to all the possible fabric-related puns.
* PuppyLove: {{Invoked|Trope}} with his jokes about Link and Romani in ''Majora's Mask''.
* {{Railfan}}: Mentions in ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door'' that he was obsessed with trains when he was younger.
* RapidFireNo: In his {{Pikmin}} {{L|etsPlay}}P, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvIiDHjIM9Y&feature=player_embedded episode 8]].
* ReadTheFreakingManual: In episode 48 of his ''Pokemon Emerald'' LP, Chugga expresses surprise that, according to his fans, the [[GuideDangIt Braille puzzles]] to access the Regi Golems has a translation guide in the instruction book.
* RealMenWearPink: His Yoshi ended up hatching pink in his LP of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
** The first Yoshi he hatched in Super Mario Sunshine was pink.
** [[RuleOfThree The first Yoshi]] he rode in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (with LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys) was pink.
** [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Mr. Luggs]] is badass... even though he's wearing a pink dress. With ''flowers''.
** In Let's Play ''[[Videogame/AnimalCrossing Animal Crossing: New Leaf]]'', he admits to liking the Princess series. He even lampshades it as he talks about the bed.
* RuleOfFun: The reason for most of the "Nintendo Logic" portions of the games.
* RunningGag: His bread and butter, to the point that he [[RunningGag/{{Chuggaaconroy}} now has his own page.]]
* SadlyMythtaken: Sinks a bit into this with his exposition for inspirations for characters in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''. He states [[GaiasVengeance Viridi]] to be based off Gaia when she would fit Demeter better, and states [[PlayingWithFire Pyrrhon]] to be based off Helios when his traits would make more sense being based off of Apollo.
* SayMyName: "[[ShigeruMiyamoto MIYAMOTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!]]"
** "Mr. ''Mime!''" in his ''Pokemon Fire Red'' LP.
** Lakituuuuuuuuu!!! in his ''Super Paper Mario'' LP
* ScapegoatCreator: Blames Miyamoto for lots of the things that go wrong in VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy, [[{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 2]], and so on. PlayedForLaughs and all in good fun, of course. [[invoked]]
* SceneryPorn: He often gushes about Okami's art style, as well as Xenoblade Chronicles' open world.
--> '''Chugga:''' "I really like the art direction."
* TheScrappy: [[invoked]]
** Chugga does NOT like Croque at all. All of his efforts in trying to like him end up falling flat or backfiring, to the point of disliking him more. He even flat out states he wants him to leave Palette.
** He's not much of a fan of Juju in Xenoblade Chronicles either, though not to the same extent.
** Played with concerning Manpuku in Okamiden. While he dislikes him, he argues that Manpuku does have good aspects and isn't a completely horrible character.
** He never misses an opportunity to insult Flareon.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: When he catches Groudon in a Nest Ball in his ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]'' LP, he breaks into a couple of these, noting that he probably lost manliness points.
** In {{Okamiden}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oJLCFohaBk#t=8m14s episode 6]], he tells the story of his fear of frogs and how he screamed like a little girl in reaction to a frog landing on his shoulder.
* SelfDeprecation: As a Let's Player, he's pretty much required to be self-deprecating. The best example is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXUyQVf_Yh4#t=4m19s when trying to capture Moltres]] in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon FireRed]]'', he goes on a long spiel about how he doesn't have anything better to do than spend nearly an hour "trying to cram a 6-foot bird into something the size of a baseball" (See the quotes page for the entire tirade). Immediately {{lampshade|Hanging}}d when, after he finishes venting, he says "God, that was a really sick burn against myself."
* ShipperOnDeck: He quite clearly ships Link/Tetra in his ''Wind Waker'' LP.
** In his Kid Icarus Uprising LP, he confessed that he ships Viridi/Pit. He readily admits that he does ship some [[CrackPairing very strange pairings.]]
* ShmuckBait: Telling his viewers to turn the volume down whenever he's about to get really loud. Most people take it as a personal challenge.
* ShoutOut: Common enough to get [[ShoutOut/{{Chuggaaconroy}} its own page.]]
* ShownTheirWork:
** His explanation of Spaghettification in the first video of ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Super Luigi Galaxy]]'', as well as his spiel during ''Pokémon [=FireRed=]'' about why an Electrode should be able to learn Surf.
** In general, his posting the full biographies of every Pokémon, from stats to locations to appearance rates.
** He mentions having done a lot of research in Japanese mythology so he could explain the backstory behind {{Okami}} (see quotes page).
---> ''"[[PunctuatedForEmphasis STU-DIED!]]"''
** He educated the viewers about how Wurmple's evolution into Silcoon/Cascoon was random in ''Pokémon Emerald''. He also debunked the popular theory that pressing b and rotating the d-pad would make it easier to catch a Pokémon.
* SimpletonVoice: The voice he does for Lord Crump in ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door''.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple:
** The only female member on his team in his ''Pokemon Crystal'' LP was Volvalgia, his Dragonite.
** Despite [[AvertedTrope Teddy, his Slaking, also being a female]], Chugga treated Pandora like this anyway.
** Dodrio in "Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness".
* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]] His opinions on the Vanillite line, and [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Maxie's]] portrayal by Creator/MarcThompson in the Pokemon anime.
* SpaceJews: (Affectionately) interpreted Business Deku Scrubs as being Jewish, and that Jewish people had HelicopterHair [[MundaneMadeAwesome that everyone wishes they had]].
* SpringtimeForHitler: He was so sure he was going to screw up a puzzle in Majora's Mask (episode 43, if you're interested) that he did it perfectly on his first try. HilarityEnsues.
* {{Squee}}: Often when things ''really'' start looking up for him. Including finding a Phanpy and a Shiny Koffing, and now catching Groudon with a Nest Ball at near full health.
* StealthPun: So stealthy it was almost definitely an AccidentalPun. In Episode 40 of Super Paper Mario, he says this "Okay, I admit that was pretty bad taste", regarding a stereotypical Japanese accent he just did, directly after picking up a Dried Shroom.
** Either this, or AccidentalPun. In Pokemon Colosseum, episode 1. Chugggaconroy states he didn't know what the kimono in the Mayors house was and thought it looked like a tree stump. Then comes the caption saying ' it always stumped me as a kid'
* StepfordSmiler: During ''Majora's Mask'' he reveals that he wasn't really as excited for ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' as he let on, due to health problems.
* TheStinger:
** About 15 seconds after the credits for his ''Pokémon [=FireRed=]'' LP ends, [[spoiler:"THE END" becomes "THE END?", accompanied by Mewtwo's cry, hinting that he was going to show the aftergame.]]
** At the end of his last ''Majora's Mask'' video that concerned Stone Tower Temple, he had a stinger where he pointed out the similarities between the temple's entrance and [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames King]] [[YouTubePoop Harkinian]]]].
** Also used in the end of his last ''Link's Awakening'' video where we see a blooper of him making a IncrediblyLamePun about the final dungeon, The Wind Fish's Egg, before entering it. Oh Chugga, when do you stop making stupid puns?
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Defied for the Xenoblade Chronicles LP. He's actively avoiding armors that would put the characters in underwear, as he finds it rather ridiculous and out of place in cutscenes. He even skips Sharla's jungle armor ''because'' it looks skimpy.
* StuffBlowingUp: With his Shiny Koffing/Weezing, he'd always set it to Selfdestruct or Explosion and [[EvilLaugh laughs maniacally]] at the sight of the opposing Pokémon going down with his own.
* StylisticSuck: His ''Mega Man 2'' joke LP.
** SpringtimeForHitler: Intended as an AprilFoolsDay joke mocking the many poor-quality ''Mega Man 2'' [=LPs=] on Youtube, it ended up being quite popular with some viewers who didn't get the joke.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: While he's trying to enter a code (no, not [[CheatCode that kind of code]]) in ''MajorasMask'', the video skips ahead a bit. "No, that cut wasn't because I had to go look up our code for this! It wasn't because of that! [[OverlyLongGag Wasn't! I swear!]]"
** In ''SuperPaperMario'', when he receives the code for the million-Rubee safe in Merlee's Mansion, he denies typing the code in on his computer calculator and states that he was simply repeating the code to himself.
*** In ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', Chugga goes to show a hidden item in Agate Village, and goes the wrong way. He denies having forgotten which side of the area the item was on.
---> ''Chugga'': I-I knew it was on this side the whole time. I was just doing a thing. I didn't forget! *Beat* No one is believing me.
* TakeThat:
** Circumstances provide him with an in-context opportunity to quote NicolasCage in ''TheWickerMan''; a caption describes Cage as "one of the worst actors who ever made it big".
** In another video, he randomly tears into Michael Cera's acting ability. Ironically, he turned out to be a big fan of ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld''.
** An... interesting variation occurs during his ''Wind Waker'' Let's Play, where he delivers a jab at his close colleague LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun for talking about his practice file so much, takes it back, and pretends it never happened.
** There was one against ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmqb-kFaFrQ&NR=1 Episode 13]] of his ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' [=LP=], when he talks about wanting to buy square watermelons in Japan like they did on The Simpsons "back in the days when the Simpsons were still good".
** He repeatedly mentions how horrible a game he finds ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgeHog2006 Sonic Next Gen]]'' to be.
** Multiple shots have been taken at LetsPlay/ProtonJon's [[ScheduleSlip erratic updates]]. [[ImStandingRightHere Including in The Runaway Guys' LPs.]]
** In Episode 15 of his ''Majora's Mask'' LetsPlay, an "[[SturgeonsLaw Unregistered Hypercam 2]]" tag pops up in the upper left hand corner after he asks "This is a quality video, right?"
** In-universe, he claims the character Francis from ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' is a TakeThatAudience from Nintendo.
** Constantly disses Umbreon during his ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' [=LP=].
* TheTeam: His Pokémon [=LPs=] just ''have'' to bring one up.

* TechnoWizard: Chugga is a {{downplayed|Trope}} version; he's been able to use a computer since he was three years old, and he's the one mainly editing videos for both himself and LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys, up to and including strenuously detailed charts for individual Pokémon information and player performance. It's even more obvious in his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
** He even managed to connect his NintendoDS and Nintendo3DS to capture cards, thus being able to take videos directly from the screens of said handhelds, without any emulators. Like fellow {{Lets Play}}er LetsPlay/JoshJepson put it via reply on Twitter:
-->[[https://twitter.com/JoshJepson/status/233395574861348864 Ya know. It's easier just to say you're a wizard and record it with magic.]]
** He [[https://twitter.com/chuggaaconroy/status/181274623646765056 built his own computer]] and his laptop is unlocked by [[http://www.facebook.com/TheRunawayGuys/posts/187972524571954 reading his fingerprint.]] For recording and editing, he doesn't just have one monitor - [[https://twitter.com/chuggaaconroy/status/120625796325982209/photo/1/large he has three.]]
* TemptingFate: Quite frequently.
** During the outtakes linked to above: "What the heck was I worried about, it's a freaking Rattata[[note]]said Rattata then uses Quick Attack, gets a critical hit, and [=KOs=] his last Pokémon[[/note]] WHAT?! WHAT?! WHAT?!"
** Upon getting 8 red coins in a difficult ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' level, Chuggaaconroy jokes "Yay. Now watch me die on the way to [the shine]." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZFMIJoOFlQ&feature=related#t=8m55s And we do.]]
*** From the same video, around [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZFMIJoOFlQ&feature=related#t=2m27s 2:27]]:
--->'''Chugga''': How would ''anybody'' ever get hit by one of these- (''gets hit'')
** Another time, during the Megaleg fight ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gZqdkc_WSY#t=3m45s this video]]) in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Super Luigi Galaxy]]''.
-->'''Chugga''': Honestly, if you can't get up here- (''he falls off''). I swear that was not on purpose.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XV8RGcgw8U&feature=player_detailpage#t=174s Once again in this outtake reel]]
-->'''Chugga''': I cheated death yet again, I am good at cheating death today wadududu. I should not have said I am good at cheating death out loud.
** On his first Pikmin 1 episode, he named the red leaf Steve and said he is the ButtMonkey, and we will not like him. Said pikmin 7 days later risked his life to carry back a Fiery Blowhog when Chugga said he needed more reds. To this day, he wouldn't live it down.
** In Pikmin 2, he postponed the Submerged Castle for the Glutton's Kitchen, saying it is easier and can get him ''right'' under the poko limit for the other cave. Care to take a guess if he survived? [[spoiler: He lost 23 pikmin to 1 enemy.]]
** The mother of all Fate Tempting came in episode 26. He had managed to make decent progress in the Submerged Castle, having only one more treasure to take back, and then, fearfully, said that he was probably on the last treasure and the thing he feared hadn't spawned yet.[[spoiler: Cue the Waterwraith. Cue Chugga FreakOut.]]
** Double Subverted in one episode of his Pikmin 2 LP after complaining about the rockfall traps:
--> '''Chugga''': "Seriously, the designers were just being-" *rocks start falling* "-JERRRRRKS [[MotorMouth they weren't really making the game challenging they were just being jerks in some areas! I'm sorry designers but that is just my opinion please don't throw more rock traps at me!]]" *pause as no more rocks fall* "Okay good, they didn't. Now don't throw one at me now that I've said you didn't!" *rocks fall*
** Used for '''''GOOD''''' when he said he couldn't get up a mountain while rolling in 1 try. He did just that.
** {{Invoked|Trope}} in the very first episode of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Emerald]]''; he called the first rival battle a button-mash and he lost via a critical hit.
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyQfO4BGJxY&t=8m24s this video]], where he is fighting Kyogre and it has done Rest for several turns without attacking, he berates Kyogre for not attacking his Blaziken, Moegami, despite having a super effective move. Cue Sheer Cold (which had a 53% chance to hit) hitting.
** This becomes a RunningGag in his Pokemon [=LPs=], where Chugga is constantly dismissing a move or Pokemon as sub-par only for it either to dramatically win him a battle or (in an enemy's hands) lose it for him.
** In Episode 5 of ''Super Mario Sunshine'', Chugga remarks that he's being more mature with his commentary than usual. Not two seconds later, he gets knocked off a tightrope and lets out a hilariously immature scream of anguish.
* ThatCameOutWrong: Frequently overlapping with AccidentalInnuendo.
** In the Prologue of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', Alec says to Claus that "Lucas doesn't know how to ram into things yet. Chuggaa's response? "What are you talking about? I just rammed into Hinawa back there-- ({{Beat}}) That sounds gross. HAHAHA."
** In the final episode of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', Chugga is lamenting missing an opportunity to make fun of a large rubber duck that Peach had been sitting on. "Hey, what happened to her rubber duck? I wanted to do stuff with that thing. Oh, God! That sounded a lot wronger than I was trying to make it sound!"
** From {{Okami}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Rnnw5hypt4&t=5m9s Episode 9]], "I don't want to let the poor kid sleep! He's what we're required to do next in the game! ({{Beat}}) That was not a very good way to word that."
** A truly hilarious one was in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', just before battling Cortez. When Cortez tells Mario to come into his lair and be lost to darkness, Chugga messes up reading it and says "Come into my hole!". He then repeats it with a laugh, ({{Beat}}), "OH MY GOD!! I JUST REALIZED WHAT I JUST SAID!!"
** A non-sexual one in VideoGame/LuigisMansion: "Dang, ghosts have it all! They have money coming off of their fans instead of dust! Man, I can't wait to be dead! ({{Beat}}) Think before you speak, Emile."
** In Episode 46 of his Wind Waker LP, after a lot of failed tries in trying to get under the waterfall in the Forest Haven to meet Makar, he finally succeeds and says, "Okay, I guess I was supposed to grab it from down there even though I ''swear'' that I grabbed it from up there and lowered myself though, but anyway."
** In Super Luigi Galaxy:
--> ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext "Wow, Rosalina's got an enemy base in her bedroom!"]]''
--> "Luigi was [[SomethingElseAlsoRises gripping onto some sort of tall, long thing]]... uh... I have no idea how I can say that without it sounding phallic."
** From Pokemon Emerald, Episode 3: "Typically, Ladies have a lot of money, though, so beat them up. [[LampshadeHanging THAT SOUNDED AMAZING!]] [[LargeHam HAHAHAHAHAHA! WOW!]]"
** Episode 16 of Emerald: "I am immune to your bodily functions!"
** Happens spectacularly when fighting Wally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lki5q3zB00c#t=4m9s towards the end]]: "WHY WON'T YOU LET ME SCREW YOU, WALLY?! ({{Beat}}) Umm, I can explain..."
** In episode 30 of Pokemon Colosseum: "I would like to stock up on a few items because Entei drained me of my balls. ({{Beat}}) That was my head hitting the back of my chair when I realized what I said."
* ThatOneBoss:
** In-universe. The third fight with [[SuperPaperMario Mimi]] killed Chugga twice, and then reduced him to low HP even on the successful run.
** Considers the Clockwork Soldiers from ''Luigi's Mansion'' to be this.
* ThatOneSidequest: He sees the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Dog]] [[LuckBasedMission Racing Track]] as this. It takes him a whole ''ninety minutes'' to complete it. Of real time. [[invoked]]
* ThatRussianSquatDance: Whenever he comes across a character who seems to be doing it, he sings Dschingis Khan's "Moskau". (Well, he would if he knew the words...) He's the article's page quote, by the way.
--> '''Chugga:''' Moskau, Moskau, I-don't-know-the-frickin'-words, I-don't-know-the-frickin'-words, ah-ha-ha-ha-HA!
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: A very quiet one during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBRvPILIbJo#t=8m28s episode 32]] of Super Luigi Galaxy.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Because it's super-effective, bitch!
* ThisIsGonnaSuck:
-->'''Chugga''': Nothing left to do but purify every single last one of them before we can move on. ''({{beat}})'' God help me.
** This is how he feels about Planet Wisp Act 4 and Beneath the Well.
* TierInducedScrappy: InUniverse. He's not afraid to badmouth certain Pokemon, items, or moves in the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games. He hits Skitty/Delcatty and Snorunt/Glalie with this hard, more or less saying there's really no reason to ever have one. Then there's his opinion on Luvdisc...
* TooAwesomeToUse: He refused to use the Flower Tabs because they have the ability to fully restore FP after use in addition to increasing your FP total, justifying it in that he would use it to fully restore his FP when he would run out after battle. Problem is, he would often use FP restoration items in battle, so he wouldn't run out, meaning he would have a lot of Flower Tabs taking up space in his inventory doing nothing.
** This is more generally true of pretty much any healing or restoration item in any RPG he plays, especially the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games; he seems to regard it as unprofessional to use them (at least on-camera).
* TooDumbToLive:
** His {{Pikmin}} frequently get into situations like this. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCrL-0D-zGg This]] has some particularly glaring examples. Chugga that says that even though Maxie has a stupid voice, at least he was smarter than this.
** In Pokemon Emerald, he points out the fact that two Team Aqua grunts tell him where Archie is (Slateport City) and what he's doing (stealing a submarine), and then Archie tells Chugga where the Team Aqua hideout is located.
** Pokemon Colosseum has him alternating between making fun of and laughing hysterically at the AI wasting turns using Normal-type moves against the Ghost-type Misdreavus.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[{{Pikmin}} Steve]] going from being TheLoad to OneManArmy.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In episode 32 of his Animal Crossing LP, [[spoiler:Stinky decides to move out just to get out of cleaning. Shocked at this, Chuggaa decides to let him]].
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Says that the side-scrolling rail-swimming section of VideoGame/{{Okamiden}} is one of the hardest parts of the game, and it will catch people off-guard.
* UnreliableNarrator: He will often say something in an LP only for a caption he adds in post-production to pop up and contradict him (for instance if he misremembered something about the game).
* UnsoundEffect: In ''Pokemon Colosseum'' episode 10, while trying to catch Qwilfish, he makes sound effects when he throws the ball on two occasions. The first time, the sound effect for the hand reaching out of the ball and grabbing Qwilfish is "hand". The second time, it's "grab".
* ValuesDissonance: [[invoked]] [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in Pokémon XD, where Chugga points out how Jovi's ItsAllAboutMe personality combined with her ThirdPersonPerson speech patterns and overall BrattyHalfPint behavior makes her gratingly annoying to him and (according to his research) the general American audience, while those same characteristics were intended (with unstated success) to seem cute in Japan.
* VerbalTic: "Whatever". He acknowledges this and vows to try cutting down on saying it, but so far, he's been very unsuccessful.
** "Like". He absolutely hates using it so much, but since so many people he knows use it all the time, he has real trouble stopping.
** "For the sheer fact"
** He has a unique way of saying "No", especially when asked in-game about something that is obvious or doesn't need to be shown.
** "What you're gonna wanna do is..."
** "though"
** "Either way" or "Regardless"
** "Very, very nice"
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential / VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: Tried to blow up the Goron baby with a Powder Keg, but first spent a while mulling over whether he should or not. As soon as he decided he would, it blows up on Link.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: An in-universe example. Chugga has no idea how to refer to the banker in Majora's Mask.
** He kept accidentally refering to his female Slaking as male because it was named after his male cat, Teddy.
** He believed that Kamek was a girl up until he played ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'' on TheRunawayGuys.
** He mistook Secc for a girl when he was on the news, which is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since as far as we see, he's never gone to talk to him in all the times he's walked past his office.
* VocalDissonance: After saying that he thinks Pandora's voice is sexy in Kid Icarus Uprising, he expects this to be the case. Turns out it wasn't.
* TheVoice[=/=]TheFaceless: He seems to have an aversion to showing his face on the internet (at least, since he started [=LPing=]), only having shown his face on TheSpeedGamers stream, and even then it wasn't until his second appearance (he wore a mask the first time). He was also interviewed at [=MAGFest=] 2011, which is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=814wY6z966M posted on YouTube.]]
** He's been less camera shy lately, most obvious through Stephenvlog.
* VoodooShark: Two examples in Majora's Mask:
** First is with the banker, who always holds onto your money even when you travel back in time, somehow having deposited cash hours before you've actually supposedly deposited it. Chugga believes he hangs onto the money by going back in time with Link, using a cow ornament, because [[BlatantLies "That cow is obviously a time machine"]].
** Later on in the Deku Palace, Chugga notes how you can actually see the guards' line of sight based on the lights coming from them. He chalks this up to all Deku Scrubs, aside from Deku Link, having '''''laser vision'''''.
* {{Wangst}}: His videos are FULL of it, done [[InvokedTrope deliberately]] [[RuleOfFunny over the top and played for comedy.]]
** "I know... FirstWorldProblems..."
* WellDoneSonGuy: Ignoring his usage of this trope in [[LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys another situation]], Chugga plays this trope for laughs whenever in-game characters he pretends to look up to give his character ([[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker often]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Link]]) approval.
* WellThisIsNotThatTrope: The introduction to his [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Super Luigi Galaxy]] LP shows everything from Mario's point of view, up to and including the title screen, when a sudden RecordNeedleScratch interrupts Mario's TitleDrop, and the text (which had been red and blue up to that point) turns green, and Luigi makes his own TitleDrop.
* WHAMEpisode: Any time an original villager moves away in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. [[spoiler:Amelia]] definitely was the most emotional and significant departure, but [[spoiler:Biskut's]] was tragic as well, especially since it happened suddenly and in an otherwise incidental episode.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: He feels terrible for killing [[SuperPaperMario Fracktail]] after noticing that he was an organic robot.
* WhiteSheep: Recently revealed that he's the only member of his family who doesn't think video games are the work of the Devil and/or pointless.
** Even more of that is hinted at in the [[SuperMario64 Super Mario 64 DS]] LP, where he mentions that his dad drank and did drugs...yeah.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Floormasters?]]: He ''really'' doesn't like them, and for good reason.
** The same with [[{{Pikmin}} orange bulborbs and wollywogs.]]
** In real life, he's afraid of rollercoasters after nearly riding the Thunder Mountain the day that it derailed and killed people.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: During his LP of Pokémon Colesseum, he ends up defeating [[spoiler: Evice, the true leader of Team Cipher due to him [[ArtificialStupidity using an X Attack on both of his Pokémon instead of finishing off Marshall,]] the last of Emile's Pokémon. Because of this, he was able to take down his Machamp and capture his Shadow Tyranitar, allowing him to handily win the battle.]]
* WildMassGuessing: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91jKdoU3_Ok In Episode 41 of Majora's Mask]], he explains his theory on the Stone Temple based on his own research and things that other people have written about it. These speculations continue throughout the rest of the LP.
** Believes that Majora [[spoiler: could be female]].
** And his theories on Link's character development. Questionable though since this Link is arguably among his less emotional incarnations.
* WorkingThroughTheCold: In his ''Pokémon Emerald'' LP, he ends up with a sore throat partway through, but continues recording episodes for a short while until it gets so bad he ''has'' to stop.
* WorthIt: In the Cavern of Chaos in his Pikmin 2 LP, he reaches a floor covered in Dwarf Bulborbs, as well as ''two'' Gatling Groinks (which he hates, possibly as much as wollywogs). He spent a very long time trying to kill the Groinks and most of the Bulborbs, then carry the Groinks back (they come back to life if their dead body is left alone), going through a lot of trouble and a couple of freakouts. In the end, he slays pretty much every Bulborb there (which is a dang big amount) trying to find the remaining treasure, only to find it's just sitting out in the middle of a room, so he theoretically could've gotten it without all that hassle. Then, when the treasure (an apple juice can) is shown on the screen after being carried back:
--> '''Chugga''': "Let me just say on the record, I love apple juice, so I'm gonna say that was WorthIt."
* YouJustHadToSayIt: A particularly loud and hilarious one to himself after TemptingFate and summoning the [[ImplacableMan Waterwraith]] in ''Pikmin 2''.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: In ''Super Paper Mario'', he keeps referring to the item storage system in the stores as the "bank".
** In ''The Wind Waker'', he keeps calling the Big Key the "Boss Key", its name in several other Zelda games.
