->''"Welcome back, folks, one and all, to Let's Play (insert game title here). [[PreviouslyOn When we last left off...]]"''
-->-- '''Kikoskia's''' introduction in his videos

[[http://www.youtube.com/user/Kikoskia Kikoskia]] (real name Damien Jennison) is a fairly noteworthy English creator of LetsPlay videos on Website/YouTube. Some of the strong points of his commentary are his generally amiable personality, whimsical [[DeadpanSnarker yet snarky]] sense of humor, tendency to [[LampshadeHanging hang lampshades]] on common tropes and cliches, and [[AvertedTrope almost total lack]] [[VulgarHumor of the profanity or vulgarity]] [[{{GIFT}} that's all too common to the genre]]. Most of the games he plays tend to be {{RPG}}s or {{Adventure Game}}s, and many of the first games he played were originally made for the Creator/{{Sega}} [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Megadrive]]. (He does use an emulator to play them on PC but insists he owns all the games he plays).

!!This Let's Player provides examples of:

* [[AbortedArc Aborted Let's Play]]: His ''{{Daikatana}}'' LP, due to a GameBreakingBug that crashed the game in a loading screen to the Ice Lab, corrupting his save file.
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: During his LP of a bootlegged ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' [[note]]actually a partial [[GameMod ROM Hack]] of an unrelated homebrew game, ''Squirrel King''[[/note]] on the Genesis/Mega Drive, while the gameplay was different, the game was still clearly trying to be ''Super Mario Bros.''. Then the third level arrives, and all of a sudden all connection to Mario is gone save for him remaining as the main character.
** Also, his playthrough of ''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}'' ended with him playing ''Cheetahmen II'' after the former crashed.
* ArmyOfThievesAndWhores: As part of the SelfImposedChallenge in his Mount and Blade LP, Kiko restricts himself to recruiting only captured bandits and their own liberated former captives until he acquires holdings of his own to recruit from.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In his Let's Play of ''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}''
-->"She's probably dead. Or worse, evil. Or worse, [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible in this game]]."
* BearsAreBadNews:
** He gets antsy whenever he encounters a bear in his ''Baldur's Gate'' playthrough, because one bear is tough enough to wreck his party. When a group of druids summons ''bears'' (plural) in a fight, [[OhCrap he absolutely]] [[http://youtu.be/WX5Z17agelQ?t=11m10s loses it]].
** In his ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' OC game, he put his enemies on the receiving end of the trope, by playing a druid with a bear animal companion and using "bear" as his go-to wild shape choice.
** This continues with the zombie bears in The Organ Trail.
* BiggerBad: In his Let's Play of Super Mario World (a homebrew game for the Mega Drive, not [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld that one]]), the fact Bowser is swiftly disposed of only for Mario to fight a slew of other bosses leads Kiko to believe that Barnett the Elephant, the final boss of the game, has been the real mastermind in the Mushroom Kingdom all along. Bowser was just a lackey.
* BigWhat: In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfKyrandia 2: Hand of Fate'', Kiko is sent on a fool's quest to pay various questionable people for a trip to the center of the earth. Then he discovers that he could simply have had Zanthia jump down an air vent. His reaction is this.
** A notable one (two!) in his Final Doom: Evilution playthrough, after he spends a full 9-minute video (and some of the previous one) searching for a very cryptic switch to progress. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmPup0BVCqE Enjoy (28 seconds in).]]
** In his Ultima VII: The Black Gate playthrough, he reacts to the questions of Batlin's weird personality quiz with increasing disbelief, leading up to an amusing example of this [[https://youtu.be/UwcvIFAIlqY?t=500 here in episode 44.]]
* BriefAccentImitation: By the time he starts playing Rocket Jockey during his {{Action 52}} Let's Play, [[SanitySlippage poor Kiko is clearly beginning to crack.]] HilarityEnsues as he comes up with the character Rocket Jockey [=McGee=], using a completely silly voice, imitating an ridiculous western twang, [[TalkativeLoon and delivering commentary that's even more outrageous than the voice and accent put together.]] It's hardly brief, though.
** Also whenever he's reading dialogue, he'll do some voice-acting.
* ButtMonkey:
** Keith in the ''UFO: Aftermath'' series, who both starts out as the slowest character on the team and has an accent that's as thick as molasses, making him an easy target for Kiko's wisecracks.
*** As the game progresses, he turns out as one of the most valuable members of the team though. His place as ButtMonkey is subsequently taken by Gaston II.
-->'''Kikoskia''': Keith has managed to make something of himself! You, Gaston II, are a loadstone made of uranium!
** In his original ''X-COM: UFO Defense'' playthrough, this role goes to Drake, who spends large amounts of any given mission either panicking, berserk, or under alien mind control.
* CatchPhrase: Several.
** "Hey, buddy."
** "You and me, [object/NPC], we're going on an adventure!"
** "For no particular reason."
** "Adventure!"
** "And then die immediately because X."
** "Batlin levels of evil."
** "Do we have to X? I don't want to X."
* ChekhovsGunman: In one of the earlier episodes of the Hardcore Minecraft LP, [[spoiler:you can see one of the Creepers that will ultimately kill him walking into the Nether Portal he's built]].
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Kikoskia's reaction to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jMa-cVVwQQ&feature=player_detailpage#t=545 Awesome Possum's exclamation "Stop polluting!"]] (in his playthrough of ''Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt''):
-->'''Kiko''': He's ''not'' polluting! He's running around with a chainsaw![[note]]in the Rain Forest...[[/note]]
* CompensatingForSomething: Kiko's immediate thought when he [[http://youtu.be/upsG-UBw_l0?t=2m30s first equips the platemail armor]] in ''Stonekeep''.
* ContinuityNod: Whenever he's playing a game where he can customize character names, he'll often pick names from previous games he's played.
* DeadpanSnarker: Very few plot holes, wonky mechanics, or unusual occurrences pass unremarked, especially if he thinks the game is rather subpar to begin with.
* DestructiveSaviour: In his Mount and Blade playthrough, Kikoskia's character attempts to defend the village of Veidar from bandits in his first foray into the wider world. He wins by virtue of the fact that his character is literally the last man standing on the battlefield, [[PyrrhicVictory all of the peasants having been killed or knocked out during the fight]].
* DownerEnding:
** Kiko plays challenge variations on the already NintendoHard ''X-COM'' games. [[ForegoneConclusion It doesn't end well.]]
** He gave ''Enemy Unknown'' another go, though, and other than the quick loss of [[ColonelBadass Sub Zero]], did MUCH better, actually winning the game. Granted, he didn't do a challenge that time around, but considering how unforgiving these games are, that's hardly something worthy of shame. If anything, it's proof he's [[{{Action52}} still sane.]]
** [[spoiler:The ultimate fate of Minecraft Hardcore - as a result of leaving his Nether Portal unprotected, mobs walked into it throughout the game and killed him when he returned to the Nether to get more Soul Sand. And then when he tried Minecraft Hardcore AGAIN, he met his end with an ill-fated attempt to cure a baby zombie villager.]]
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Minecraft Hardcore ends with Kiko getting blown up by Creepers the second he enters the Nether. This is largely his own fault, since he left his Portal out in the open, allowing Overworld mobs to enter it. His second go at Minecraft Hardcore ended quite disastrously, being routed by a baby Zombie he attempted to cure.]].
* DudeWheresMyReward: What is the reward his character Spunty [=McGoo=] receives for [[TrainingThePeacefulVillagers saving a village from bandit marauders]] [[DestructiveSaviour (sort of)]]? A solitary cabbage.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His earlier videos are generally more subdued and feature less of his typical whimsical humor.
* EpilepticTrees: He occasionally engages in idle (and silly) speculation as filler during slow moments in his videos. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l__4PEdvVTA Here]] he speculates that human civilization in the ''UFO Afterblank'' series is being propped up by IKEA. [invoked]
* EveryoneLaughsEnding: His first shot at playing Minecraft Hardcore had him laughing in disbelief after he spawned ''in solid stone'' and died in seconds.
* FacePalm: In his LetsPlay of ''Dungeon Quest'', around the 6:15 mark of the seventh video, you can hear him whapping his forehead – and then explaining: "That's me facepalming."
** Does this in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfDragonPass'' when [[spoiler: men from his tribe got themselves cursed by sleeping with an elf in the woods...for the third time.]]
** Does three facepalms in his LP Space Quest IV, twice of them in a row in the middle of eleventh video.
* FarSideIsland: His second attempt at LP-ing Minecraft on Hardcore spawned him on what was basically one of these-- a small island with a single oak tree and a few clumps of grass.
* GatlingGood: If his constant, enthusiastic cries of "CHAIIINGUN!" are anything to go by, this seems to be his favorite class of weapons in first-person shooters.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Quite often. [[PrecisionFStrike It's VERY rare that he actually swears]].
* HeroicSecondWind:
** Kiko's battle with the Cyberdemon in ''Doom 3''.
-->'''Kikoskia''': [[BigNo NO!]] – I REFUSE TO DIE LIKE THIS!!!
** In a more meta example, his new ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'' playthrough.
* HollywoodTactics: In full force for his first playthroughs of ''[[VideoGame/{{X-COM}} UFO: Enemy Unknown]]'' and ''Terror from the Deep''. He gets better in later playthroughs of ''X-COM'' and similar games, though, taking advantage of cover, tactics, teamwork, and combined arms.
* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: During his LP for ''Stonekeep'':
-->'''Kikoskia''': This place is large, and it's called... the Feeding Grounds. The Feeding Grounds does not sound good... The only question I have to ask is, "Feeding grounds for ''what''?"
* IncrediblyLamePun: Lampshaded in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhnLUdTtILk this video]], when Kikoskia discovers a fae rune. (Say it [[TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms aloud]].)
* LampshadeHanging: If Kiko isn't a troper himself, he certainly knows how to think (and snark) like one.
* LovableCoward: [[VideoGame/{{X-COM}} Poor]], [[ButtMonkey poor]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath Drake]]...
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Lampshaded multiple times in his LP of ''Mystic Quest'', each time with increasing levels of disbelief.
* KleptomaniacHero: His version of the Avatar from ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}''-'''This accusation is entirely baseless.'''
** Iolo is actually the thief (not the Avatar) - This is because of a twist in the ''VideoGame/UltimaVII'' game engine which doesn't allow the Avatar to steal, but other members of the party can. This leads to a RunningGag.
** Also from his ''Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition'' playthrough: "You'll notice that we're stealing blindly from everyone -- 'cuz I'm a [[GoshdarnItToHeck goit]]."
* MadnessMantra: Time?
* MoreDakka: A [[http://youtu.be/HYAuxq4VP3k?t=2m30s most satisfying demonstration]] in his ''Ultimate Doom'' playthrough, where he mows down an entire room full of enemies with one long continuous blast from [[GatlingGood his chaingun]].
* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain: "Evi- I mean, [[Franchise/{{Ultima}} Batlin]]."
* NoSenseOfDirection: He's constantly getting lost in his Hardcore Minecraft series, much to the amusement of his viewers.
** UpToEleven probably in his ''realMyst'' Let's Play: During an underground rail section in the Selenitic Age, he got lost after moving ''twice'', then turning around 180° and going back, thinking he goes somewhere new.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Kiko basically characterizes Ymira in VideoGame/MountAndBlade as Spunty's straight man sidekick, being far saner, far more competent, and much less senile.
** Repeated with Sharwyn alongside his druid in NWN.
* OwMyBodyPart: A RunningGag in his VideoGame/MountAndBlade LP, typically along the lines of:
--> "OH GOD MY FACE/[[UselessSpleen SPLEEN]]"
* PrecisionFStrike: Four times, out of ''thousands'' of videos.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0APDOl_mBk&t=6m11s During his Silent Bomber playthrough:]]
--> "'Do they have guns?' 'No, they all have bomb units, just like you, Jutah.' 'We're fucked.' ...That's exactly what they would say."
** Near the end of ''Temple of Elemental Evil'', Video 71:
--> "Well, we're fucked. And I'm sorry I swore."
** During his LP of VideoGame/CovertAction:
--> "A large quantity of explosives has been purcha--[[OhCrap Oh. Shit.]]"
** And lastly in his [[https://youtu.be/0NnGJXP7jXo?t=3m58s Final Doom: Evilution playthrough]].
--> "How about just running the fuck away?"
* PressStartToGameOver:
** His LetsPlay of ''{{Karateka}}'' is his shortest--30 seconds from intro to farewell. He plays the actual game for all of 9 seconds, about half of which he stands still at the beginning.
** His first stab at Hardcore Minecraft resulted in him spawning in solid rock--and thus dying in less than ''20 seconds''. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny He cracks up at this]].
* PreviouslyOn: Usually starts each video in an ongoing series (after the obligatory introduction) with a brief sentence or two recapping exactly what he's up to.
* RageQuit:
** Playing ''Storm Over The Desert'' in the Nintendo version of {{Action 52}}. The cause of his fury: [[JustifiedTrope the game just went on and on and on and ON]]. It didn't help that the game, just like everything else on the cartridge, sucked.
** And there was Evil Empire before that, which kept giving him lives to subject him to more suck. No wonder he felt so much fury when ''Storm Over The Desert'' came along and made things worse!
* OffTheRails: In his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheStanleyParable'', he does this as much as he possibly can. He only follows directions when there's nothing else he can do.
* RedShirt:
** In his ''X-COM'' playthroughs, he always names one of his squad members Barry, whose sole duty is to run ahead of the squad and find aliens via getting shot at. After he inevitably dies, another trooper gets named Barry, and the process continues.
** Subverted in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UKrk10ixiY Let's Play X-Com UFO Defense Again]] playthrough, where his first Barry defies all logic by not only kicking total ass, but [[spoiler: manages to live all the way to the very last mission of the game, [[{{Retirony}} where he finally dies not to aliens, but a panicked squad member.]]]]
** In his playthrough of ''VideoGame/StarTrek25thAnniversary'', the caption for his video of his first away mission reads "Who wants to take bets as to how many times I can get the redshirt killed on this mission alone?".
* RunningGag:
** [[GatlingGood CHAAAAINGUN!!]]
** On ''Ultima VII'', his constant reinterpretations of "Rule Britannia".
** IOLO, YOU THIEF!!
** ''[[NotSoInnocentWhistle *whistling*]]''
** During the second Action 52 playthrough, whenever an enemy got stuck in a glitch (which was quite often) "Hello sir, you appear to be stuck in a glitch. Let me help you." -Shoots the enemy-
** "Dance, [character], dance! Dance for my amusement!"
** "Bzzzt!"
** Whenever he describes a game as "manly"... it won't be.
** "Craaaaazy bus!"
** "No one [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath takes a bullet to the face/bear attack to the neck/giant boulder to the head/[insert other bizarre and/or gruesome manner of death here] ]][[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast like Gaston!]]"
** "I'm the hero of Veidar!" "What, that place where [[PyrrhicVictory they all got massacred?]]"
** "And now, we'll be doing X. And by X, I mean Y." [[ByNoIMeanYes (Often Y is nothing like X at all)]] [[note]]Usually whenever he misspeaks and then corrects himself on the spur of the moment, or when he wants to emphasize something odd, ridiculous, or just plain painful.[[/note]]
** Zombie Crumpet - usually in The Organ Trail but once in NWN due to a graphics glitch making Crumpet glow green.
** "Precious, precious rocks" in ''Anvil of Dawn''.
* SelfImposedChallenge: With some games, he enjoys giving himself certain handicaps to keep the game more challenging for himself and entertaining for his viewers. So far, these include:
** The Antarctic Challenges (only one base in the middle of Antarctica) for ''X-COM: UFO Defense''
** The Pacific Challenge (one base in the middle of the Pacific Ocean) for ''X-COM: Terror from the Deep''
** A ''Mount and Blade: Warband'' playthrough where he restricts himself to recruiting only from captured bandits and freed prisoners (and his own villages, once he sets himself up as a ruler).
** A ''Crusader Kings II'' playthrough where he customizes his starting character as a product of inbreeding to see how far he can get on a bad character.
** Two playthroughs of ''Minecraft'' on Hardcore Mode (game locked on Hard difficulty, death is permanent).
*** Doubly so with his first (well, [[PressStartToGameOver second]]) where he spawned on an island several dozens of chunks away from any land, with only a few patches of grass and a single tree. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck He accepts the challenge.]] The first fifty or so minutes consists of him waiting around stationary for a sapling to grow, since he had nothing more productive to do and moving depletes your hunger faster.
* SequenceBreaking: A very major case in his ''UltimaVII'' playthrough. Lampshaded:
-->'''Kiko''': "But Avatar, why are we breaking plot consistency?" Iolo, you don't know that I've been breaking the plot since video 1?
* ShoutingShooter: When any kind of GatlingGood is involved, you can bet your behind that Kiko will yell out a long "CHAAAINGUN!" as he delivers a barrage of dakka.
* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: [[spoiler:Well played, Creeper. Well played.]]
* TalkingToHimself: InUniverse as a RunningGag. If he's doing the voice of another, made-up character (Such as Rocket Jockey [=McGee=] from ''VideoGame/{{Action 52}}'' or the Pirate during Guild of Dungeoneering), he will engage in conversation with that character.
* TemptingFate:
** ''Minecraft'': "Let's see what the world throws at Kikoskia." ''*Spawns in solid stone and dies in opening 15 seconds*''
** ''UFO: Aftermath'': He spends half the game dreading the moment one of his squad members opens a door to find a [[ActionBomb Balloon Fish]] staring them right in the face, since it could easily result in the destruction of half his squad. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztAjh6N6BbA Guess what happens in video 60]]. [[spoiler:Everyone lives, thankfully.]]
* TestosteronePoisoning: An inverted lampshading: whenever he describes a game as the "Manliest Game Ever", it will likely be one marketed to young girls, or at least be [[TastesLikeDiabetes very cutesy]].
* ThisIsGonnaSuck:
** Kiko's reaction throughout most of [[BrutalBonusLevel Episode Four]] of [[VideoGame/{{Doom}} Ultimate Doom]] (at least at the start).
** [[VideoGame/{{Doom}} Final Doom. Evilution.]] [[MoonLogicPuzzle Last Call.]] Kiko ends up speechless after he screws up a whopping ''zero times'' trying to make it through the opening maze by brute-forcing it.
** On his second attempt at ''Minecraft'', Kikoskia finds himself stuck on a deserted island with only one tree. Despairing ensues (though he gets better).
** A literal example occurs in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrvVufsveOs&feature=player_detailpage&list=WL#t=280 fifth video of his ''Crusader Kings II'' Let's Play]] when his infantile player character acquires a character trait ("proud") of which he doesn't approve and he also notices that there's a new claimant to the character's title.
* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: Both ''Action 52'' playthroughs, especially when he gets to ''Storm Over The Desert'' (which ''never ends'').
* ToBeContinued: He has a meltdown when presented with one of these at the end of ''[[{{Franchise/Barbie}} Barbie Explorer]]''.
* TooAwesomeToUse: This is his opinion of pretty much any consumable it seems. He could be on a sliver of health and mana and still have the idea that his mountain of healing and mana items is more useful in his bag. He's gotten better at this as time went on – as of 2016, he'll hog all the items and get by with alternate means like spells, up until the last leg of the game, whereupon he'll start using hogged items judiciously.
* TookALevelInBadass: '''Keith''', the ''UFO: Aftermath'' soldier who went from being TheLoad at the beginning of the game (to the point where Kikoskia refused to even give him one of his trademark nicknames) to becoming one of the most valuable members of the team. In the last episode of the series, Kiko even acknowledges his belated badassery [[spoiler:by giving him the honor of delivering the final blow to the aliens' moonbase]]. He even goes so far as to call him one of the greatest heroes he's ever had in any of his Let's Plays, ever.
* TrainingThePeacefulVillagers: He tries this as one of his first missions in his Mount and Blade playthrough. It goes less well than planned, leading to a running gag.
--> '''Spunty:''' ''Charging into battle'' "I'm the hero of Veidar!"
--> '''Random Enemy:''' "Isn't that the place where they all die–''gets run through by Spunty'' [[OwMyBodyPart OH GOD MY SPLEEN]]"
* UpdatedReRelease: His "Let's Replay" slot on Mondays covers new runs of games he's already LP'd.
* UselessSpleen: A sort of running gag throughout his LPs. Woe betide the spleens of Kikoskia's enemies.
* VerbalTic: For your sake, [[SchmuckBait don't even try]] and make a DrinkingGame out of the times he uses "actually" and variations thereof, "pretty much", "absolutely" or "basically". You'll end up with a molten liver even if you're not drinking alcohol.
** '''''*sniff*'''''
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Not snakes, but Kiko has this reaction to giant ''birds'' attacking him in ''Tiny Barbarian DX''

->''"When we come back, folks – [[ToBeContinued more TV Tropes!]] Until then, folks, until then!"''
-->-- One of '''Kikoskia's''' typical closing messages
