->''"[[HelloInsertNameHere MAH BALLS]]."''

[[http://www.youtube.com/user/lucahjin Lucahjin]] (real name: Risa "Reese" Dressler) is a Website/YouTube-based [[LetsPlay Let's Player]], and one of the site's more noted [[GamerChick female Let's Players]]. She's Let's Played a number of old PC {{Adventure Game}}s, including entries in the ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' series and ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry''. She's also played the games of [[TeamICOSeries Team ICO]], and various other assorted games.

Her SignatureStyle is a strange mix of [[GenkiGirl incredible cuteness]], from both her voice and her unstoppably perky attitude, and her [[FreudWasRight incredibly filthy sense of humor.]] She frequently [[LargeHam hams it up]] in her videos, and tends to [[SirSwearsALot swear]] and make [[DoubleEntendre off-color jokes]]. She's also [[PluckyGirl undeterred by failure]], and is fond of co-opping games with various other [=YouTube=] Let's Players.

After participating in two of LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys' filler tournaments, she joined them as a full guest for their LP of ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' and as a special guest player on their board playthrough of The Observatory on ''[[VideoGame/ItadakiStreet Fortune Street]]''.

----
!! The work of this reviewer provides examples of:
* AchievementsInIgnorance:
** Her lack of experience with Pokemon has led to her pursuing some of them that more experienced players usually dismiss, leading to surprising successes with Audino and Bibarel among others.
** In episode 56 of her blind LP of ''Ocarina of Time'', she stumbles upon a trick to beat the Iron Knuckles by exploiting a hitbox issue, which her Sage Tyler was unaware of.
* AllGirlsLikePonies: Plays up an exaggerated version of this stereotype, and during her ''{{Franchise/Barbie}} Horse Adventures'' LP, and squeals in a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything vaguely suggestive]] way over her horse. (She apparently actually does like horses, though, and even owned one once.)
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Numerous InUniverse examples.
* {{Angrish}}: Devolves into ineffectual sputtering and repeating the word, [[BigWhat "WHAT??"]] in her PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Let's Play, when [[spoiler: General White turns out to be in the town she started the quest in.]]
* AnimalMotif: After ''Barbie'', horses seem to be her theme animal. She even wears a horse costume in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'' with LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.
* BackForTheFinale: In the final dungeon of her OcarinaOfTime LP, each of her sages cameos for a word of encouragement.
* BaitAndSwitchComparison: (while failing very, very badly in ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'') "If you look in the dictionary under 'stupid,' you will find a picture of -- JudgeJudy."
* BeatingADeadPlayer: in ''Videogame/SuperPaperMario'', Lucah is quick to note whenever Bowser defeats a Sammer Guy and ends up standing over him in a way that makes it look like Bowser is "asserting his dominance", as Lucah puts it.
* BodyHorror: She thinks this about [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Timburr and especially its evolutions]], being [[{{Squick}} squicked out]] just by looking at them.
* BootstrappedTheme: Ever since she began using [[StandardSnippet classic production music]] in her videos, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUrlSBYq_0o Da Jodel-Rudel]] has quickly become her theme song--or at least the theme song for when she derps, which is often.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: In ''Ocarina of Time'', LetsPlay/{{Pcull44444}} establishes the catchphrase "If only there was a way you could do X / had an item that could do X" when Lucah forgets she has one. The next Sage, AttackingTucans, borrows this catchphrase to use himself.
* BossDissonance: DiscussedTrope in ''Pokemon White'', where Lucah easily [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps]] the gym leaders yet has trouble with some of the rival and regular trainer battles.
* BuffySpeak: Mainly in the form of "It's a ''thing''", "Is this a ''thing?''", "Why is this a thing?" etc.
* CampStraight: In ''Ocarina of Time'', she sometimes inserts her own dialogue for Link (aka "Fuck me") in a voice slightly resembling that of a SassyBlackWoman, but so far she's only had him flirting with the ladies (as much as bragging about having an [[GagPenis incredibly large penis]] counts as flirting anyway).
* CatchPhrase:
** "MAH BALLS"
** "[Something that sounds suggestive]--just like all my first dates!"
** "That's what S/HE said!"
** "Are you coming onto me?"
** "Sir?!/Ma'am?!"
** "You don't know?!"
** "This is a sham!"
** "Why is this a thing?" and "Why is anything anything?!"
** "...[[SincerityMode Cooooool!]]"
** "He/she/it's ''[[CutenessProximity sooooo cuuuuuute!]]''"
** "If I had a dollar for every time I heard that"
** Whenever she says the word "girl" she follows it up with a SassyBlackWoman-esque "gurrrl?"
** When playing the ''VideoGame/FreddiFish'' games, "That's a euphemism."
** "[[BlatantLies It's FINE!]]" when something goes wrong.
* CaveBehindTheFalls: Discusses how this is an omnipresent trope in episode 44 of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
* CharacterDevelopment: Near the beginning of ''Pokemon White'', she ruthlessly mocked it to no end and never took anything in the game too seriously. However, while still keeping her goofy and comedic nature, she stated that she had grown to genuinely appreciate and enjoy her experience by the end of the main story-line.
** Much the same happens again in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' after the WhamEpisode of the sixth world.
* CherryTapping: She deliberately kept the basic move Tackle on Joshtheslt in ''Pokemon White'' for a long time so she could do this to nearly-dead opponents.
* ClusterFBomb: After doing a sidequest in ''VideoGame/PaperMario64'' and getting only 1 coin in return.
--> '''Lucah:''' You fuckin' awful piece of fucking shit fuck cunt stained asshole grandpa motherfucking drop needle dick shithead. Unbelievable. Fuck you. Just...fuck you.
* CollectiveGroan: The "Dr. Mario" pun in ''Paper Mario 64'' elicits this.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: At the start of ''VideoGame/PaperMario64'' when Luigi reads out Princess Peach's letter to Mario, she reacts by saying Mario must be illiterate. This gets a CallBack in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' which has a very similar opening, and she calls out Mario on still not having learned to read yet.
* {{Corpsing}}: In the ''Ocarina of Time'' LP, when it gets to the infamous [[AccidentalInnuendo "Will you go into this tiny hole?"]] part, [[LetsPlay/AttackingTucans Tyler]] (who was voicing Nabooru), one of--if not the--most filthy [=LPer(s)=] in the Polaris family, absolutely loses it once Lucah slams her controller on the desk incredulously.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Invoked in some of her [=LPs=], when she gives characters voices based on various [[OnceAcceptableTargets outdated caricatures]]. In addition to lamenting the fact that she can't think of anything better and is thus offending everyone, she tries to play it up enough that it goes straight into ridiculous.
* DirtyOldMan: She has her suspicions about... pretty much every old man in ''Paper Mario 64''.
* DisneyDeath: For a brief moment in ''Journey,'' it looks like the White Cloak is going to get eaten by a rock snake. But they escape just in time, for which Lucah is thankful.
* DownTheDrain: Hates water levels, and is mildly phobic of them.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In her earliest [=LPs=] she already had her SelfDeprecation tendencies, but lacked her LargeHam ones, being very subdued by comparison to her later persona.
* EntendreFailure: Sometimes subverts her "Just like all my first dates" catchphrase by saying it after something that sounds horrifying but can't ''quite'' be construed as an innuendo.
* EpicFail:
** Lampshaded in episode 42 of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' when she uses a Fire Flower on [[FeedItWithFire three Embers]].
*** Again in episode 61 when she fights the X-Yux. It takes up almost half of the episode.
** Episode 61 of ''Ocarina of Time'' begins with Lucah charging into Ganon's Castle, prepared to confront the BigBad and reach the game's epic conclusion. By the episode's end...she's running around Kakariko Village in a desperate search for more arrows (because she doesn't know where to find them inside Ganon's Castle ''or'' where Kakariko's arrow shop is).
** In ''VideoGame/{{Jazzpunk}}'', when given a sidequest to search for a mailbox marked with chalk on the side, she completely ignores the mailboxes and examines newspaper boxes instead. After spending a fair amount of time checking every newspaper box in the level, she realizes her mistake and finds the correct mailbox very near to where she got the sidequest in the first place.
* EroticEating: Lucah, LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}}, and LetsPlay/{{AttackingTucans}} all do it in her "Project Brave Heart" charity livestream as a challenge - Lucah with a taco, Donna with a banana, and Tucans with a slice of pizza.
* EvilBrit: She gives British accents to many villains in games that lack voice acting.
** [[VideoGame/PaperMario Bowser]] was the first with an exaggerated Cockney.
** [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Grodus]] has a more realistic one.
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ganondorf]] has a very light hint of one.
** She refers to [[VideoGame/PaperMario Kammy Koopa]] as "Queen Elizabeth II," and reads all of her lines in an exaggerated version of the Queen's voice.
** She initially gave one to [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario Count Bleck]] before switching to a more vampiric, Romanian(ish) accent at the request of her fans.
* FailedASpotCheck:
** "I somehow managed to miss the ONE trick, that everyone told me about, that would have made that boss fight easy."
** During ''Ocarina of Time'', she sometimes gets stuck due to her failure to check the map, the A-button commands, or Navi's C-up alert, all of which are plainly visible on-screen.
*** She also apparently doesn't know she can press Z and R to toggle more quickly between the pause menu screens, even though there are arrows labeled "Z" and "R."
** [[invoked]][[InvertedTrope Inverted]] during ''Ocarina of Time''[='=]s Water Temple, where her compulsion to explore leads her to find two obscure keys without any help from her Sage, who refers to said keys as "the bane of everyone's childhood" and the very reason the Water Temple is so widely regarded as ThatOneLevel.
* FanNickname: InUniverse.
** She calls [[VideoGame/PaperMario64 Parakarry]] "Derpy" due to his being a [[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic flying mail carrier.]]
** She calls [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Merlee]] "Happy Ending Lady" and eventually starts calling Goombella "Ms. No-Arms".
** In ''Ocarina of Time'':
*** Gold Skulltulas = "token spiders."
*** Princess Ruto = "[[NameMcAdjective FishTits McBitch]]."
*** Hover Boots = "butter shoes" (because of their appearance).
*** Ganondorf = "Black Ginger" ([[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname almost exclusively]]).
* FirstInstallmentWins: [[{{In-universe}} When she livestreamed]] ''Pokemon [=HeartGold=]'' and ''Pokemon Emerald'', both she and {{Donnabellez}} refer to Professors Elm and Birch as "Professor Oak".
* FirstNameBasis: LetsPlay/JoshJepson is one of the few people who regularly addresses Lucah by her real name: [[TomboyishName Reese]] (short for "Risa").
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When a tiki face appeared during her playthrough of the first ''FreddiFish'' game, she exclaimed, "[[BanjoKazooie EEKUM TOKUM!]] That's a hint." This suggested her next project was a blind ''BanjoKazooie'' LetsPlay.
* FluffyTamer: Her eventual reaction to the Wolfos (or as she calls them, "[[CutenessProximity PUPPIES!]]") in ''Ocarina of Time''.
* FreudWasRight: [[invoked]]Interprets almost ''everything'' in the ''VideoGame/FreddiFish'' games as some kind of euphemism.
* TheGadfly: LetsPlay/{{Pcull44444}} "assists" Lucah in ''Ocarina of Time'''s Shadow Temple...by deliberately misinforming and sabotaging her, all just to entertain himself. This eventually develops into him becoming something of a TricksterMentor.
* GenderBlenderName:
** My Balls the ''female'' horse.
** [[LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}} Donnadrilz]] the male Excadrill.
* GenkiGirl: Even when failing, she's still a force of unstoppable perkiness.
* GenreSavvy: Upon reaching the bridge outside of [[VideoGame/PaperMario64 the Koopa Bros Fortress]]: "A bridge outside usually means trouble. Remember ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''?"
* GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies: She's easily scared by "spooky" things, as revealed in ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos 5 Days a Stranger.]]'' Despite that, she forges through.
* AGoodNameForARockBand: "Corpse Removal" in episode 3 of ''7 Days A Skeptic''.
** "Johnny Johnson and the Llamas" in her Sims 3 100k subscribers special stream.
** "Stephen Hawking and the Ramps" from her Sims 3 "Clam Chowder Celebration" stream.
* GrowingTheBeard: [[{{In-universe}} She herself]] mentioned in an interview that she considers ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' to be the first LP where she really hit her stride.
* HehHehYouSaidX: She can find innuendos in just about ''anything.'' And it's one of her favorite things to do when playing a game.
* HelloInsertNameHere:
** She and LetsPlay/JoshJepson can't wait to name their horse something immature in the ''Barbie Horse Adventures'' LP. They find out the game only allows you to choose from a list of pre-set names, but they insist their horse is named "[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential My Balls]]" anyway.
** They also named their game file "Dickbutt."
** Barbie's friend, Theressa, is called "Vagisil", and her baby horse at the end she delightfully names "My Penis".
** The theme continues in the sequel with the aid of fan suggestions, leading to horses named "Your Virginity", "President Haemorroid" and "Fappy Cow" among others. And all the foals are named after venereal diseases.
** She similarly abuses the nicknames in her ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokémon White]]'' LP, including an actually "official" My Balls.
*** And its successor, the Yoshi from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', who also receives the name "My Balls".
* HelloSailor: She interprets [[VideoGame/PaperMario64 Muskular]] as being AmbiguouslyGay due to the fact that he's a sailor star.
* HeroicBSOD: In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', she finds Madame Flurrie's appearance so questionable that she breaks down laughing for a full five minutes when we first see her.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: (Almost) Every episode of ''Pokemon White'' has a title ending in an XtremeKoolLetterz Z.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Her pronunciation of the Pokemon Liepard as "Lee-ah-pard" instead of "Lye-perd".
** In ''Barbie Horse Adventures Riding Camp'', guest commentator LetsPlay/ProtonJon insists that Satan is pronounced "sa-TEEN".
* JumpScare: A RunningGag in ''Ocarina of Time Blind'' is [[MrExposition Kaepora Gaebora]] doing this to her.
* TheLadette: Swears, makes dirty jokes, and has recorded more than one video [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl while drunk.]]
* LadySwearsALot: Oooh yeah. She does apologize for it occasionally, but [[StatusQuoIsGod never seems to keep with the promise.]]
* LargeHam: She has a distinct "deep voice" she uses when she's being over-the-top. She's also one [=LPer=] who isn't [[TheFaceless shy of showing her face online]], and she hams it up in front of a ''real'' camera, too.
* MarathonBoss: In her ''Ocarina of Time'' LP, she spent well over forty-five minutes fighting Dark Link, even with Liam's help.
* MemeticBadass: InUniverse, Boobarel the [[{{Pokemon}} Bibarel]]. It ''single-handedly'' took down [[BonusBoss Cynthia's]] Spiritomb after it KO'd the rest of Lucah's team, despite Boobarel having the lowest level out of any of her Pokémon. Spiritomb had used Double Team six times to make itself nigh-untouchable, but thanks to Boobarel's Unaware ability, all of Spiritomb's boosts were cancelled. Boobarel landed Waterfall after Waterfall while Spiritomb couldn't do anything in return besides burn Boobarel. Not bad for an HM slave.
* {{Mentor}}: In her ''Journey'' LP, the White Cloak. In addition to being Lucah's partner through most of the LP, they show her many secrets she hadn't found before.
* MythologyGag: In ''Pokemon White,'' she gives some of her Pokemon the same names as some of the horses from the ''Barbie Horse Adventures'' [=LPs=].
* [[NamedAfterSomebodyFamous Named After A Famous LetsPlayer]]: A horse named [[LetsPlay/{{Pcull44444}} Pcull Horse Horse Horse Horse Horse]]. Also in her Pokemon White LP, her Samurott named [[LetsPlay/JoshJepson Joshtheslt]] and her Excadrill nicknamed [[LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}} Donnadrillz]].
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: In Episode 64 of ''Ocarina of Time'', when Ganondorf prepares to shoot his quintuple energy beams, Lucah (who's playing the game blind and thus has no idea what to do) randomly starts charging up a Spin Attack. This is the correct strategy against the beams[[note]]aside from just shooting Ganondorf with a Light Arrow[[/note]], and Lucah found it ''completely by chance on her first ever attempt at this boss fight!'' ...Too bad she fails to release the Spin Attack and gets hit.
* NoJustNoReaction: Whenever she has to fight [[BodyHorror Gurdurr, and especially Conkeldurr]], in ''Pokemon White''.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is 37 years old. Could easily pass for a decade younger. In a bit of an unintentional RunningGag, this ''always newly astonishes'' a large number of commenting fans every time she shows herself on camera.
* {{Omniglot}}: Can speak English, Japanese, Swedish, and possibly more.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Even when she appears on camera herself, or in videos at cons, she is almost always referred to as Lucahjin or simply Lucah.
* ParodyNames: Usually really immature ones.
** In ''Pokémon White'' she refers to Cheren and Bianca as "Chinhair and Pee-on-ya".
** In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', Grodus, Lord Crump, and Koops become Scrotum, Lord Dump, and Poops.
* PerverseSexualLust: For N from ''Pokemon White'', to the point that she acts as though all their battles are dates.
* PlatonicLifePartners: She's very good friends with fellow [=LPers=] LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun and LetsPlay/JoshJepson, and they co-op often. One question in her channel's FAQ section is if she and NCS, Josh, and any number of other famous [=LPers=] are dating. The answer is a firm "[[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend No.]]"
* PluckyGirl: During her fight with Pelagia in ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus,'' not only does she express open disdain for the colossus, but she also had multiple failed recordings and was drunk at the time. She also tried to use a nonconventional method to beat the colossus to prove it could be done. Despite failing, repeatedly, she kept with it and eventually won.
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: When she participated in LetsPlay/JoshJepson's Mario Kart anniversary celebration (as well as [=MrRepzion=] and SuperJeenius) she did badly on all the more recent games, but very well on the SNES original as she grew up playing it.
* {{Pun}}:
** Used by LetsPlay/JoshJepson in her LP of ''Barbie's Wild Horse Rescue'': "It's been a great RIDE!"
** Lucah herself will sometimes comment on puns used by the writing of a game itself by saying "That's the lamest pun I've ever heard, [[TakeThat and I hang out with]] {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}}!"
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvflZLwDiB0&t=3m22s "Just like. All. My first. Dates."]]
* RunningGag:
** She enjoys mocking JudgeJudy.
** A lot of videos include her commenting "[[MadLibsCatchPhrase if you can hear X in the background, it's Y]]", usually being the antics of either her cat or her neighbours. Almost invariably the sound isn't audible on the recording, which only makes it funnier.
** The name "My Balls" seems to be one, seeing as how she named a horse in her ''Barbie'' LP this, and would go on to use the same name for her Zebstrika in ''Pokemon White'' and her baby Yoshi in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
** When reading out in-game instructions, replacing any reference to buttons with "blah". LetsPlay/JoshJepson does a similar joke, it's not clear whether they came up with it independently or not.
** Whenever she does a blind LP (especially ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''), complaining about fans who don't understand the concept and keep spoiling things for her.
** In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokémon White]]'', reacting to the game text "What will [[HelloInsertNameHere My Balls]] do?" with "What will you do, My Balls?" in a pompous tone.
** Also from ''Pokemon White'', when she gets a gym badge, singing "We got a thing, [[ShapedLikeItself it looks like a thing]], and we put it in our birth control case!"
** A third from ''Pokemon White'' is semi-singing "Quick Claw is the best!" whenever that item activates and lets Snuggltits go first. By the end of the LP she's saying that she expects her viewers to be saying it along with her.
** Singing "[[MadLibsCatchPhrase I'mmmmm riding my (X)]]" whenever her character rides anything in-game. Less commonly "[[MadLibsCatchPhrase I'mmmmmm (X)ing away]]", which makes it more obvious that this is based on a ShoutOut to the song "Come Sail Away" by Music/{{Styx}}.
** When Merlee appears during battles in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', breathlessly saying "Haaaaappy ending laaaady!"
** An unintentional one is that whenever she comes up with an amusing name to fill in for an in-game character, it's ''always'' one character too long and she has to compress it.
* SanitySlippageSong: Sometimes uses yodelling music for this.
* TheScrappy: {{In-universe}}, she hates the three monkeys (Pansear, Pansage and Panpour) from ''Pokemon White''.
* SelfDeprecation: Mocks herself incessantly when she fails, and sometimes even when she doesn't. At one point in ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'', it even leads to a BaitAndSwitchComparison where it ''looks'' like she's going to rag on herself again, and instead picks on JudgeJudy instead.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: In episode 35 of ''Pokemon White''.
* ShapedLikeItself:
** In ''Pokemon White'', whenever she receives a gym badge.
--> "We got a thing! It looks like a thing! (And we put it in our birth control case!)"
** In ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door'':
--> "We got a Train Ticket! It looks like a Train Ticket."
* {{Shipping}}: Ships [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser/Peach]], apparently.
* ShoutOut:
** In the second ''Barbie'' LP, she and LetsPlay/JoshJepson name one of the horses "[[OverlyLongName Pcull Horse Horse Horse Horse Horse]]" after fellow Let's Player LetsPlay/{{Pcull 44444}}.
** And Barbie's friend being called "Vagisil" is a reference to another Let's Player, LetsPlay/AttackingTucans.
** In Pokémon White she names her first Pokémon "[[LetsPlay/JoshJepson Joshtheslt]]" (because there wasn't room for "Josh the slut"), and later an Excadrill [[LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}} Donnadrillz]].
** Also in Pokémon White, after realising the voice she does for Lenora is heading into {{Mammy}} territory, she [[CrossesTheLineTwice goes for broke]] and has her yelling "[[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry THOMAS!]]"
** In the first ''Barbie'' LP, she comments "[[LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast MAH BALLS can TELEPOR'!]]" in a British accent.
** She often sings things InTheStyleOf the opening line "I'mmmmmm sailing awaaaaaay" from "Come Sail Away" by Music/{{Styx}}.
** In the same vein, whenever she comments that something in a game is blue, she usually lapses into singing "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" by Eiffel 65.
** She often makes a reference to {{Prince}} whenever anything purple appears in a game.
** She mentions ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' a few times when talking about Cheren due to him [[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger pointing at her]].
** She often hums (or even plays on a kazoo) "The Spanish Flea" at random times.
* SimpletonVoice: She can do a burbling 'derpy' one which she uses for several characters in different [=LPs=]:
** Toads in ''VideoGame/PaperMario64''.
** Bianca / "Pee-on-ya" in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokémon White]]''.
** Doopliss (with an added CampStraight lisp) in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
** Navi in ''Ocarina of Time''.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent:
** Her secondary channel, [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Relaxajin Relaxajin]], is devoted to low-key and meditative Let's Plays that help viewers relax and fall asleep. Her ''very'' calm and laid-back voice is a departure from the more over-the-top persona she uses in her regular videos.
** On her main channel, she sometimes mixes comedic blind [=LPs=] full of immature humour (e.g. ''Paper Mario'', ''Pokemon White'') with serious [=LPs=] of games she knows and loves (''VideoGame/{{Journey}}'', ''Suikoden 2'').
* SpringtimeForHitler:
** In ''Pokemon White'' she keeps [[OneHitKO one-hit-killing]] the final Pokemon of gym leaders so she never hears the last-Pokemon music. After a while she tries using deliberately bad choices of moves to try and hear the music for longer, but it always seems to somehow result in another OneHitKO.
** In ''Ocarina of Time Blind'' the horrors of the Water Temple are talked up by her fans and guest commentator [=http://www.twitch.tv/lucahjins/profile/pastBroadcastsx=]...but while Lucah has trouble fighting Dark Link and with her aquaphobia, she manages to completely miss all the usual new-player pitfalls like finding all the keys and getting the trick to beating the boss.
* {{Squee}}: She loses it upon learning that she can name the Yoshi partner in ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door...'' and that there are ''exactly'' enough letters for her to name him "My Balls."
* {{Squick}}: [[invoked]] Her reaction to {{Womb Level}}s, such as Jabu-Jabu's Belly in ''Ocarina of Time'' or [[spoiler:the Director's insides in ''Jazzpunk'']].
* StandardSnippet: Midway through ''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door'', she started using an outro, each of which uses one of these.
* StopHelpingMe:[[invoked]]
** Her InUniverse reaction to Derk in her first ''Skyrim'' test stream.
** In ''Ocarina of Time'' she calls out her guest [=LiamSixx=] for giving her bad advice:
--->'''Liam:''' Maybe Z-target is ''not'' the way to go.
--->'''Lucah:''' [[SarcasmMode Okay, so thanks for telling me the way not to go!]]
*** And then there's [[LetsPlay/{{Pcull44444}} Pcull]], who deliberately invokes this trope in the Shadow Temple.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Without ever having seen any of LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}'s ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' LP (as her own is blind), she somehow manages to do almost the same SimpletonVoice he did for Lord Crump, and then the ''exact same'' ComicallyMissingThePoint BaitAndSwitch joke about Goombella and Professor Frankly when they're attacked by the three Goombas in the sewers.
** In her blind [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina Of Time]] playerthrough she also makes the same "Volvagina" joke that Tyler and Josh do in their {{LetsPlay/Versus}} race of the game.
* StupidSexyFlanders:
** Despite being (as far as we know) straight, she finds the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime female Gerudo]], especially the jail cell guards and Nabooru, extremely attractive.
** Elza in ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' seems to have the same effect on her. She mentions she likes women with scars.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: The outro she uses for ''Ocarina of Time'' is one, using quotes from VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames.
* SurroundedByIdiots: The protagonist of ''7 Days A Skeptic''. A RunningGag is Lucah saying that [[StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]] would not be happy with this starship crew's performance.
* TakingTheBullet: In the ''Journey'' LP, her white-cloaked companion runs ahead of her to distract a rock snake away from her, and [[DisneyDeath almost doesn't appear to make it.]]
* TearsOfFear: Due to her aquaphobia, this happens to her in the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Water Temple]]'s vortex cavern.
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: She uses both this catchphrase and the variation "...just like all my first dates!"
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Her reaction to the Water Temple in ''Ocarina of Time'', because she hates water levels in general due to her fear of drowning, and because her fans had already been hinting how hard it was.
** Lucah's sage, [=LiamSixx=], says this shortly before she enters the Temple's waterfall-platform room: "You're gonna take one look at that and be like, 'Ah shit.'"
* ToiletHumour: If you thought LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun was bad about this, wait 'til you listen to ''her''.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Due to the fact that they're two of the most popular female Let's Players on Youtube, she is often considered the "counterpart" of LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}}. It's also probably because they fit this particular trope very well--Lucah is more of a tomboy, while Donnabellez is an unashamed girly girl. With one exception: Lucah [[GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies is easily frightened by creepy things]], while [[NightmareFetishist Donna revels in them.]]
* TomboyishName:
** She often abbreviates her name, Risa, to "Reese." In one of LetsPlay/ProtonJon's livestreams, Lucah said that she only lets friends call her Reese, and that only her mother can get away with using her full name.
** Her username is a more obscure example, as she has said it comes from combining the (female) character Lucca from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' with -jin, which is a ''masculine'' name suffix modifier in Japanese.
* TooAwesomeToUse: Acts this way towards healing items in the ''Paper Mario'' games, referring to using them as 'wasting' or 'burning' them even when it's in one of the final boss fights of the game!
* TrademarkFavouriteFood: Taco Bell.
* UglyCute: Her InUniverse view of Dampé in ''The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time''.
* TheUnfavourite: Diarreahed the Pansear in ''Pokémon White'', bordering on UnpopularPopularCharacter with the fans.
* UnusualEuphemism: "Crumply Gurn" in her Sims 3 livestreams.
* VerbalTic:
** "Sir? / Ma'am?" and "...you don't know!"
** "Actually" becomes one from ''Suikoden II'' onwards.
* VocalDissonance:
** In ''Pokemon White'', she mistakes Clay for an AwesomeAussie and voices him accordingly, despite him being dressed as a cowboy and his heavy use of DeepSouth slang. Later, she voices Skyla as a SouthernBelle, and makes a point of mentioning how the southern accent should have gone to Clay instead.
** Also in ''Pokemon White'', she can't tell the difference between male and female Team Plasma Grunts from their sprites, making her guess which gender to voice them as and causing her some frustration when the battle starts and she sees that she keeps guessing wrong.
** In ''Paper Mario 64'', she gives Tayce T. a very deep "old man voice." She has no idea why she does this, but sticks with it due to RuleOfFunny.
*** It carries over into ''Thousand Year Door'', where she decides that Zess T. needs to have an old man voice simply because Tayce T. did.
** In ''Ocarina of Time'', guest commentator [=LiamSixx=] gives Princess Ruto a throaty, [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Batman]]-like voice for no real reason (other than, again, RuleOfFunny).
*** LetsPlay/{{Pcull44444}} gives Impa a really over-the-top and overly cheerful German accent.
* WaxingLyrical:
** When the Shhwonk game show host in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' rotates around on his pedestal, she says, "He's spinning right round, baby, right round. Like a record, baby".
** When Link first puts on the Zora Tunic in ''Ocarina of Time'', she comments "He's blue. ''(beat)'' ...Da boo dee. Da boo dah."
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: An InUniverse example in ''Barbie Horse Adventures: Riding Camp'', when Lucah finds a bottled message from a girl who became trapped on a sinking boat and apparently died. [=ProtonJon=] is especially dumbfounded by how dark the story of this '''''Barbie''''' game just got.[[note]]It later turns out the girl survived, but still.[[/note]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: An InUniverse example is her and LetsPlay/JoshJepson's incredibly immature take on {{Franchise/Barbie}}. Numerous commentators have noted they pity the poor little girl who just wanted to watch someone play a Barbie game... Lucah herself eventually added a disclaimer to the video saying it was ''definitely'' not for kids.
** Amusingly, at PAX East 2012, she gave away a "MAH BALLS" t-shirt to... a little girl. Who had indeed seen the videos. (OK, so she wasn't ''that'' little--she was probably around 13--but still.)
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Gurdurrs?]]:
** In her ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Pokemon White]]'' Blind LP, she really hates encountering Timburr, Gurdurr and Conkeldurr, due to the bizarrely massive veins around their bodies.
** Redeads in ''Zelda'' games terrify her.
** She has aquaphobia, which makes her terrified to tackle ''Ocarina of Time'''s Water Temple.
* WithLyrics: She sings several different sets of ToiletHumour lyrics to the upbeat Pokemon Centre music in ''Pokemon White'' (some of which were submitted by fans). At one point she also hummed wordlessly along to the Tetris theme music but replaced the last two notes with "...MY BALLS!"
* [[YouBastard You Bastards]]: Says this to the people who had her play [[spoiler:''Can Your Pet?'']]
