-> ''Helloween, sucking MOST of the tension out of the atmosphere for 4 years running, and that's why he's awesome.''
-->-- A comment on Website/YouTube describing Helloween4545 perfectly.

Helloween is a British {{L|etsPlay}}Per who plays SurvivalHorror games and he does so as a complete {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who plays with zombified dogs, [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter names any shotgun type weapon]] [[ICallItVera 'Mr Shotty']], and is prone to an occasional psychotic episode once in a while. He also has named a [[FanNickname few monsters]] (who hasn't?) and described horrible things that happen to a man named 'Bob'. His main weaknesses are ladders, and locked[[note]]stuck, jammed[[/note]] doors.

His Website/YouTube account can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Helloween4545 here]].

----
!!Tropes that apply to Helloween4545 and his videos:

* {{Angrish}}: When really frustrated, he'll start speaking gibberish for a short while.
** Made hilarious(er) when it's sped up, where he sounds like an angry chipmunk.
* ArbitraryGunPower: He's not a fan of this trope as he often bemoans his fate of firing pea-strength bullets at enemies who soak up tons of damage.
* BerserkButton: "CRYPTIC BULLSHIT!" - Basically, anything that deliberately tries to be mysterious but ends up not making a lot of sense when thought over about.
** He also has this reaction when dealing with [[IAmVeryBritish "fake Brits"]] (i.e. people impersonating British accents... poorly).
** At the end of his [=LP=] of ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersUndying'' after hearing the stock phrases of [[LockedDoor 'IT'S LOCKED', 'STUCK', 'JAMMED' and 'WON'T BUDGE']] a million times, he developed a few issues about doors.
** After scaring the bejesus out of him in the first ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]'' game: "GODDAMN NINJAS!"
** His hatred of monitors applies - in previous [=LPs=], they slowed his computer down.
** Lazy console-to-PC ports and stupid company decisions cause him to go on mini-rants.
** ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'', due to how disappointed he is about how bad of a game it turned out to be. To a similar extent, ''VideoGame/CryOfFear'' also counts.
* CatchPhrase:
** "Hello and welcome back to..."
** "Well, this [[ContractualGenreBlindness seems legit]]."
** "Rude!"
** "Jolly good." and "Good stuff."
* TheChewToy: Is there a way to die horribly? If so, Bob has already experienced it.
** In his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'', the [[IAmVeryBritish dark]][[BerserkButton ling]] is this to him.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: I would guess someone is one if they talked to corpses and pretended they talked back, as it so happened in ''Dead Space 2'' at the end of his first set amongst other things. [[RuleOfFunny Not that it's a bad thing.]]
** Halfway through his ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'' LP, he randomly split off a second persona called Helloween #2 (who sounded exactly like Helloween) to banter with since Alice wasn't cooperating; a few videos later he spawned Helloween #3 (who also sounded exactly like Helloween) because #2 had gone on holiday and they had a conversation about how Helloween #2 is crazy and no one should listen to a word he says.
*** As a result, a lot of his fans think his survival horror focus has scared him well into insanity.
** Pick any LP of his and watch through his videos of it. More than likely you will end up finding a moment wherein he acts silly for one reason or another.
* ContinuityNod: He tends to make a lot of references to his older LP's and videos.
** In ''Claire'', he says "''Jammed''" and "''Stuck''" in an Irish accent a few times when Claire finds jammed doors - referring to the main character Patrick Galloway of his ''Undying'' [=LP=].
** In ''Resident Evil [=REmake=]'', after fleeing from the room with the hornet, he refers to his dislike of wasps using bees as an analogy, complete with using the same tone of anguish and fear from his wasp warning video.
--> '''Helloween:''' "Angry, angry women!"
** In his ''Castlevania'' videos, he often refers to the actions or abilities of characters he has played as before, such as when comparing Nathan to, say, Shanoa.
* DeadpanSnarker: Helloween is a good one.
** During his [=LP=] of ''Alien vs. Predator 3'', there's this moment:
--> '''PA:''' "Weyland-Yutani. Building better worlds."
--> '''Helloween:''' "Yeah, but not better lights."
** Then there's his treatment of Barry in his LP of Resident Evil Revelations 2, poking fun at his previous betrayal and snarking at some of the man's lines.
* DeathByFallingOver: Occurred frequently in ''VideoGame/{{Cryostasis}}'' due to Alexander's feeble legs.
** Happens to Helloween often in a few of his videos, courtesy of his archnemesis, [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes ladders]].
** Happens literally one time in ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'':
--> ''(gets hit for last sliver of health)'' '''Helloween:''' "...oh no, I fell over. I think I just died of death."
* DrinkingGame: He made one where you had to take a shot every time ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' ripped off an element from a previous horror property. This culminates in him promising bitterly that he would [[BreakTheFourthWall take an actual drink on camera]] if it turned out the last chapter was called "The Evil Within". [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Guess what the last shot of the LP was?]]
* GoodiesInTheToilets: The {{Trope Namer|s}} and the one who suggested its existence as a trope.
* HarpoonGun: He favoured the Javelin Gun in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'', to the point where it was used more frequently than the [[BoringButPractical Plasma Cutter]]. It's also the weapon he upgraded the most... which made it his murder gun, pretty much.
** To a similar extent, his Agony Crossbow in ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'', which he used when he needed something with more kick than his [[SimpleYetAwesome Pistol]].
* HypocriticalHumor: He gets angry at "fake Brits", but he often puts on fake American accents during his Let's Plays. They're... not even close to legit. Case in point, his recap video in his Silent Hill 3 LP.
* IAmVeryBritish: Quite, except for one little detail (see "Spot of Tea" below).
* [[ICallItVera I Call It "Mr. Shotty"]]: As mentioned above, he has a habit of naming just about almost any inanimate object he comes into contact with - such as his best friend Mr. Shotty, the shotgun.
* JustAStupidAccent: Mocked in his [=LP=] of ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersUndying''. Patrick, the main character, has a horrible Irish accent. Helloween imitates it when he is speaking for him. Hell apologizes to any Irish in the audience, but his attempt is MORE tolerable than the one in the game!
** Can be seen time and time again in his [=LPs=] of games that feature Russians. [[RedScare Which is quite a lot, actually.]]
* MadeOfIndestructium: If there's ever something that cannot be broken that should normally easily shatter (such as a glass window after being shot at numerous times) it's usually made of "Decentanium".
* NoodleIncident: The ever elusive "Spider Story" has become his over the years with Helloween teasing about telling it whenever a long load screen shows up.
* OnlySaneMan: Bob took this role in ''Dead Space 2'', where he points out the stupidity of having only ONE power cell separating them from painful [[TheUndead Necromorph]] death and suggests another one be placed in a more secure location. He is ignored. Granted, it wasn't THAT easy to reach, but place a Unitologist up there...
** It gets funnier when ''Helloween himself'' acts like this in almost all of his LP's, pointing out major flaws in both the reasoning of game characters and the logic of particular places' or items' purposes as well as the enemies themselves.
* PlaceWorseThanDeath: When entering levels of a game that are particularly badly buried in garbage and decay, infested by horribly mutated monsters, or looking like a place you would never want to set foot in, there will typically be a comparison to Swindon.
* RantInducingSlight: About three quarters into ''Cry of Fear'', Helloween goes into a non-stop 2 minute rant about unnecessary backtracking that has him running from one end of the level all the way back to the beginning to pick up a fuse, because the character can only carry six items at a time. Which forces him to run a considerable distance back to pick up his gun. [[FromBadToWorse And then the game crashes without saving any of it...]]
--> '''Helloween:''' ''[[OnAScaleFromOneToTen On a scale from 1 to Annoyed]], there is "irked", "slightly peeved", and "really fucked off!". And I'm definitely up there on the whole F-scale! This is talking capital letters now! We are talking writing in post of [[BoldInflation angry capital letters]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis with spaces and random punctuation]] just to make this more annoying!"'
* RunningGag: Every LP has at least one of or references to:
** [[TemptingFate 'Sounds legit.]] [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong Let's do it.']]
** [[BodyHorror 'WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOUR FACE?']]
** [[RagdollPhysics 'Molest, molest!']]
** {{Shot|gunsAreJustBetter}}[[ICallItVera guns.]]
** [[TheyKilledKennyAgain The aforementioned unlucky bastard Bob.]]
** [[CriticalExistenceFailure Death by ladders.]]
** [[MoreDakka Ammo conservation, or lack of it.]]
** [[Franchise/MetalGear Snake impersonations.]]
** [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 Skeletor impersonations.]]
** From the ''Franchise/DeadSpace'' games:
*** "Pimp stance! Glorious pimp stance!"
*** "STOMPY STOMP! Aw yeah!"
** "Party body!" (This happens whenever a dead body is left twitching, usually due to a game glitch or it clipping something.)
* SanitySlippage: As the {{running gag}}s from other videos increase the less sane he seems, culminating in his 'talking to corpses' moments, and his somewhat... [[ComedicSociopathy sociopathic]] [[RuleOfFunny behaviour]].
** For example, in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'', he ended up imagining a conversation between him and some of the corpses about his [[ScheduleSlip infrequent uploads]] near the end.
** He slips into this the more he rages, to the point that he can go into {{Angrish}} mode.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Overlaps with ICallItVera. A lot.
* ShoutOut: Multiple. For example, several of the voices Ethan hears in ''VideoGame/CondemnedCriminalOrigins'' are He-Man, Skeletor and [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged Super Kami Guru]].
* SkewedPriorities: Perhaps the best example comes from ''Penumbra'', in which he entered a room covered in blood, gasped, and immediately focused on a boot.
** In an ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' example, upon [[spoiler: opening a cupboard full of skulls, complete with a JumpScare]], he gasps 'Oh God'... then picks up a skull, bashes it up and down on top of the desk, then places it daintily atop the neck stump of a decapitated mannequin and declares himself an ''artiste''.
* SpotOfTea: Helloween does not like tea (he prefers ''not-diet'' colas), but he likes to poke fun at his own Britishness, spawning sentences like this from ''Dead Space'':
--> '''Helloween:''' ''"I'd like to have a comfy chair and a coffee. No, you know what? I'll take a tea, being British and all... REAL tea, mind! I've been to America, I know what your tea is like."''
** Let's not forget the tea-scapades in ''Alice: Madness Returns''...
--->''(using a teapot-mortar to shoot a baby-faced abomination in its face)'' '''Helloween:''' "TEA!!!"
** He also points out in ''Claire'' (and in a few other of his [=LP's=]) that he doesn't like coffee that much either.
* TalkativeLoon: The 'voice' he seems to have picked for his [=LPs=], see {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
* [[TheyKilledKennyAgain They Killed Bob Again]]: A typical example of one of Bob's many demises:
-->'''Russian Scientist:''' "How was zee reactor Bob?"
-->'''Bob:''' "I'M MELTING!"
-->'''Russian Scientist:''' "Ah, he is melting, it is working awesome."
* WeaponOfChoice: [[ShortRangeShotgun Mr.]] [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter Shotty.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In Helloween's case, ladders are his Achilles' Heel.
** One word: Stealth.
*** And mazes.
* YouAreFat: Towards Isaac when he's wearing the Vintage RIG in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2''. He also tends to rag on other overweight characters a lot.
** He calls Ethan from ''Condemned'' a "chunky meatball", due to how slow he runs.
