->''"Running and pulling levers and climbing up things. That's what Lara Croft does best. Also dying a lot."''
-->-- '''Nuttylamb''', at the beginning of ''Tomb Raider: Underworld'', already mildly annoyed by the game's buggy controls

[[https://www.youtube.com/user/nuttylamb Nuttylamb]] is a British [[LetsPlay Let's Player]] that posts videos on YouTube.

She is a member of an online community called ''Dogs of War Gaming'', or ''[=DoWG=]'' (which, due to her British accent, she cannot pronounce correctly). Aside from Let's Plays, she also spends a lot of time playing ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}'', which, consequently, she has become quite good at. She has a fondness for [[FirstPersonShooter First-Person Shooters]], but is perfectly willing to branch out to other genres.

Dabbles in ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations Assassin's Creed: Revelations]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', ''{{Halo 4}}'' and some other games from time to time.

Although she is quite skilled at playing ''Battlefield 3'', not many of her videos showcase this. Rather, most of her ''Battlefield 3'' videos are part of a little series she calls ''"To Hell with K/D"'', in which she imposes certain rules on herself that force her to play very unconventionally and, more often not, leave her with a disastrous K/D. Basically runs on RuleOfFun. The silliness and the hilariously chaotic attempts at getting kills is what makes the series so much fun. Unfortunately, recent law changes that forbid the uploading of ''Battlefield 3'' footage, have forced her to end the little series, although she is looking for other games on which the format might be applicable as well.

She is occasionally joined by her cat, [[CuteKitten Charlie]], although he has recently been usurped by fellow cat, Buffy, whose energetic and excitable nature tends to lead to various shenanigans, often distracting Nuttylamb during her recording. Nuttylamb is also very fond of cookies and silly, over-sized sheep hats.

So far, she's done [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]] of the following games:
* ''{{Limbo}}'' - ([[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDA31FEC42ECC871A&feature=plcp Completed]])

!!Tropes associated with Nuttylamb and her videos:

* AccidentalAimingSkills:
** In one of her ''Battlefield 3'' videos, she, at one point, accidentally throws a grenade and quickly brushes it off as something [[MakesSenseInContext secret agents can afford]]. Turns out that it landed on some hapless chap from the other team and took him out. Her incredulousness is very amusing.
** Happens again in ''Deus Ex'', where she intends to blow up a large security bot with an EMP grenade, but throws it too early.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': (after accidentally throwing said grenade) No! [[BigNo NOO!!]] Jensen!... (robot is reduced to junk) Ah. Ah. Well done, Jensen. Well done.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: She thinks it's quite amazing.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': [[UnsportsmanlikeGloating Teabagging]] the T. Rex's tail. Yeah! That's some alliteration there for you.
* {{Angrish}}: Tends to pop up in ''Anniversary'', when Lara's faffing about too much.
* AnimalMotifs: Nutty'''lamb'''.
* ApologeticAttacker: Briefly becomes this in ''Deus Ex'', when she realises she has shot and killed Zeke Sanders, a criminal that she encountered earlier on in the game, and feels genuinely bad about it. In her defense, the guy ''was'' trying to shoot her and she didn't recognise him until after she killed him.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny:
** The little butterflies in ''Skyrim''.
** The ancient pottery in ''Tomb Raider: Underworld'' also has this effect.
** Does this a fair amount of times in ''Deus Ex''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since the game highlights objects of interest.
** The GPS Caches in ''Tomb Raider''. Admittedly, they are quite shiny, so partly justified.
** The animals in ''Assassin's Creed III'' still elicit this reaction by the twentieth episode.
* BearsAreBadNews: In ''Anniversary''. They tend to freak her out quite a bit.
* BerserkButton: She rarely gets ''really'' angry, but when she does, you can bet your ass it's because of Lara Croft not doing what she wants her to do.
* BigOMG: At times. She does an understated but powerful one after [[spoiler: Faridah Malik is shot in front of her eyes]] in ''Deus Ex''.
* BigWhat: Does these when she doesn't understand what's going on, or alternatively, when there's a huge revelation in-game.
* BoomHeadshot:
** Occasionally in her ''Deus Ex: Human Revolution'' playthrough, though their frequency increases once she gets her hands on the SniperRifle, with which she proves to be fairly proficient. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK4iKUQMWjY&feature=g-all-u One of her videos]], in which she manages to pull of several, is even named after this trope.
** Constantly in the ''Tomb Raider'' Reboot playthrough, thanks to her proficiency with the bow.
* BondOneLiner: Funnily enough, she attemps one while using James Bond's signature gun in ''Battlefield 3''. She throws a grenade and, in true Bond fashion, delivers a quip moments later, though she quickly [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this fact. Subverted, because the grenade she used didn't kill anyone.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': That was beautiful. Looks like he got [[IncrediblyLamePun all fired up]]... [[LampshadeHanging That was the worst pun ever.]]
* BritishAccents: Since she is from the UK... She occasionally hashes it up to hilarious effect in VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII, when she's still playing as Haytham.
* BuffySpeak: Happens occasionally. A particularly [[{{Egregious}} egregious]] example below:
--> '''Nuttylamb''': That was the thing I put... I picked from the thing... ehm... back in the other place, where I picked up those things by the hooky thing.
* ButtonMashing: Practically guaranteed in ''The Walking Dead''; she'll be pushing the buttons so ''vigorously'' her mic picks up on it.
* CallBack: When fooling around with the pontoon in the flooded cistern in ''Anniversary'', Nutty is reminded of an uncannily similar situation from her ''Batman: Arkham City'' playthrough, in which a [[ThreateningShark huge shark]] nearly bit her head off. Fortunately, it did not join her for this playthrough.
* CatchPhrase: Several, excluding her usual intro and outro. Examples below:
** "You don't even know..."
** "That's made my day."
** "Oh, sugar!"
** "How do I...?"
** "No one needs to know."
** "Game logic."
** "It's happening."
* CharacterTics: Nuttylamb apparently waves at her television when she does her SigningOffCatchPhrase.
* ClusterFBomb: Reserved for her in-game encounters with [[GiantSpider giant spiders]]. Quite hilarious, since she rarely swears otherwise.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Vows to make her children play ''Limbo'' as punishment for misbehaving, should she have them in the future.
* {{Cosplay}}: As the one and only, [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] (in her reimagined design). She pulls it off quite well, with a real bow and all.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: She can come across as bumbling and a bit incompetent in her playthroughs, which is mostly because they are blind runs, and not always in the genre that she's used to. She is, however, a competent ''Battlefield 3'' player, who would most likely be more than your match, should you come across her. That is, if she isn't doing one of her ''"To Hell with K/D"'' challenges again.
** And for all her faffing in ''Anniversary'', she actually made surprisingly short work of [[spoiler:Natla]] in the final boss fight.
* CutenessProximity: Has this with dinosaurs, of all things. Also, the hamster in ''Limbo''.
* CuteKitten: Charlie. Also, [[TheGhost Buffy]], who has not yet made an appearance.
** Buffy has now finally made her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9apZrYJ6mg&feature=g-u-u online debut]]. Charlie apparently does not approve of her antics.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DescriptionCut: Is present in her Q-and-A-video:
--> '''Random Viewer''': How do you stay so calm in-game?
--> '''Nuttylamb''': ...
--> (video cuts away to Nuttylamb freaking out in ''Limbo'')
--> '''Nuttylamb''': I don't know. [[BlatantLies Just comes naturally, I guess...]]
* {{Determinator}}: Presses on even when she's basically got no ammunition and is vastly outnumbered. Will also confront spiders, despite her fear of them.
* DieChairDie: She has this bad in ''Underworld''. Only a small fraction of the pots in that game [[RewardingVandalism actually contain treasure]], but she would smash each and every one she came across, just in case. She [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in the playthrough's final episode.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': And also some pots. Which is very important. We must kick them. Have I taught you nothing?
* DrivesLikeCrazy: In ''L.A. Noire'', where she [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking crashes into other vehicles, runs over civilians and mistakes the driver's seat for the passenger's seat]].
** One viewer even explicitly challenged her to score more than 10,000 city damage while on a case. The case itself was a failure (possibly because of said challenge), but she did manage to reach the required amount, by pretty much ramming into anything in sight while en route.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] She hasn't really settled into a definitive format yet.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Definitely.
** She spends a minute or so admiring the huge, occasionally moving dinosaur statue in ''Batman: Arkham City'' before some dudes interrupt her. She kicks them to the curb, of course, and then proceeds to wander around and be distracted by every other dinosaur statue in the museum.
** In ''Anniversary'', when fighting the T. Rex, Nuttylamb alternates between [[{{Squee}} squee-ing]] over how cute he is and laughing madly as she tries to stay alive.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Except spiders, maybe...
* GamerChick: Speaks for itself; she's been playing games for at least ten years and is an especially good {{FPS}} gamer.
* GenkiGirl: She's a generally giddy kind of person.
* GenreSavvy: Occasionally. She's especially fond of [[LampshadeHanging lampshading ]] SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': Hmmm... What's all this ammo for, I wonder? You'd almost think that something bad might happen.
* GiantSpider: Due to her fear of arachnids, the appearance of these pretty much guarantees lots of screaming and occasional swearing.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': (after dealing with ''Underworld's'' first giant spiders) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U8TjY8OOrI&t=1m35s I ''DESPISE'' spiders!]]
* GilliganCut: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] In her video for reaching 500 subs, she claims she could thank all 500 ''individually'', at which point the video cuts to her doing exactly that. After having ''thanked'' the first twenty or so, she's clearly running out of breath. The video then cuts back to her saying she'd probably kill herself if she tried, [[BlatantLies so she won't.]]
* GoshDangitToHeck: Nuttylamb averts this at first, with her older playthroughs having the occasional swearing thrown in. Recent playthroughs however, contain little to no swearing at all, often resulting in this trope. What inspired the change is not known, but it's probably deliberate on her part.
* GroinAttack: Her shots sometimes end up around this general 'area'. Ouch.
* HeadDesk: Does one in one of her Channel Updates, out of sheer exhaustion.
* HundredPercentCompletion: She normally doesn't do these, since her videos are Let's Plays, and not walkthroughs, but she made an exception for the new ''Tomb Raider'', which she was very excited for. Once the actual playthrough was finished, she started a little series called ''Let's Complete Tomb Raider (2013)'', in which she revisits every location and collects the things she missed the first time around.
* HurricaneOfPuns: A chicken-related one in one of her Facebook posts.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': I have an ''egg-cellent'' surprise for you all on Friday. I don't want to get you all in a ''flap'' but it's going to be pretty damn cool, I just hope you don't find my bragging too ''fowl'', I'd hate to be walking on ''egg shells'' around you guys. Catch you on Friday, ''mutha-cluckers''!
* ICallItVera: Her actual, in-real-life bow is called ''Eve'', while the one she uses in the new ''Tomb Raider'' is called ''[[JustForPun David Bowie]]''.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Like many a [[LetsPlay Let's Player]], she resorts to these every once in a while. Example from the ''Legend'' playthrough.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': (after blasting a {{Mook}} into a lava pit by using a grenade) Got him. Looks like... he couldn't take the heat.
* [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain Let's Never Speak of This Event]]: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1F-CTOrcP3s&feature=plcp The title of one of her videos.]]
* LetsPlay: What her channel is mostly about.
* MamaBear: She is definitely this for Clementine, from ''The Walking Dead''.
* MundaneObjectAmazement: Can get really excited about boxes.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: She appreciates each and every view she gets and will get back to you (most of the time) when you post a comment. Several of her videos are just to show her appreciation for her subscribers and often contain artwork as a thank you of sorts. She also enjoys give-aways immensely, though she can't do them very often due to financial limitations.
* NiceHat: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZN1VdAG5ME&t=10m44s Her fluffy sheep hat.]]
* NoSenseOfDirection: She struggles with this from time to time, though in varying degrees.
** Very apparent in ''Deus Ex'' and ''Batman: Arkam City''; she can easily get lost while trying to find her next objective in the games' [[WideOpenSandbox open worlds]]. And while both games offer a map, they tend not to be of very much use. [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgetting she has one]] doesn't really help matters, and even when she does use it, she ''still'' struggles sometimes. She's aware of this herself and [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] it often.
---> '''Nuttylamb''': ... Maybe if I looked at the map. I know one of you, at least one of you is going like ''"Look at the map, woman! What are you doing?"''.
** In ''Anniversary's'' first level, this actually causes her to explore every additional nook and cranny, coming across several secrets, while failing to follow the more obvious road. This is in part due to nostalgia, which has her confuse the game lay-out of the original ''Tomb Raider'' with ''Anniversary's''.
---> '''Nuttylamb''': It seems all I'm able to achieve, is finding secrets, but not the actual way to go.
* NotAMorningPerson: She has admitted to being bad at waking up early, and once rather unconventionally solved this by just ''staying awake''.
* NowWhereWasIGoingAgain: This, coupled with NoSenseOfDirection, can hamper her progress quite a bit sometimes.
* OhCrap: Frequently in ''Deus Ex: Human Revolution''.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Her actual name is a relatively well-kept secret; she only refers to herself as ''Nutty'' or ''Nuttylamb'' in her videos.
* PrecisionFStrike: Occasionally appears in her older Let's Plays, though it's absent in her more recent videos.
* [[PressXToNotDie Press A to Not Die]]: Quotes this ad verbatim at the beginning of her ''Tomb Raider: Underworld'' playthrough.
* {{Review}}: After her first year of gaming, she was inspired to start [[http://runningjumpingpullinglevers.blogspot.co.uk/ a blog]] and write up reviews on the games she's played.
* RevolversAreJustBetter: In ''Deus Ex''. Although the scarce ammunition doesn't allow her to use it very much.
* RhymesOnADime: [[DrivesLikeCrazy "Hello there, Nuttylamb here, and we are back playing L.A. Noire, and we need to find a new car!"]]
* RunningGag:
** Saying 'morphine' in a really load and dramatic voice. Originally appeared in the ''Deus Ex'' playthrough, when she was forced to euthanise someone, the 'gag' has since returned several more times in her playthrough of the ''The Walking Dead'' and ''L.A. Noire''.
** Trying to sneak up on pidgeons (and inevitably failing).
** Viewers mistaking her voice for that of a boy.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Literally says "Sparkle sparkle" when she's unboxing her [=AVermedia=] Capture Card.
** This trope has increased in frequency in her newer Let's Plays, with her imitating the sound of a lever getting pulled, for example.
* SceneryPorn: At first, she is genuinely appreciative of ''Limbo's'' unique style of background and lighting and predicts that she will be gushing about it throughout the game. Turns out, she does not, because the game quickly becomes dark and scary with [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Everything Trying to Kill Her]].
* SelfImposedChallenge: Her ''"To Hell with K/D"'' challenges in ''Battlefield 3''. Later also extended to ''Assassin's Creed: Revelations''.
* SequenceBreaking: In ''Anniversary'', she's rather fond of making [[LeapOfFaith leaps of faith]] that bypass entire sections of platforming.
* ShoutOut:
** She references Boxxy during ''Limbo'' when coming across an actual box.
** In ''Underworld'', she shouts [[Film/{{Predator}} "To the choppa!"]] when she finds some choppers resting idly on the boat she's infiltrating.
** In ''Anniversary'', she likens the sacks in which the Atlanteans rest to [[VideoGame/HalfLife headcrabs]].
* SigningOffCatchPhrase
* SniperRifle: Towards the end of ''Deus Ex'', she buys one of these, and proves to be quite a good shot with it.
** Actually, despite her success with it in the aforementioned game, she has said that she's not very fond of sniping or sniper rifles, or any kind of other long range weaponry. In the {{Halo 4}} multiplayer, her preferred gun is actually quite sniper-y, although she mentions that this is unusual for her.
* SpecialGuest: In many of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-O2V8sFx8nU&feature=plcp CouchCouple's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dx2m8pODCU&feature=plcp videos]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Hkhod1hjIk&feature=g-all-u so far]].
* {{Squee}}:
** Her reaction to her new capture card arriving can only be described as this.
** The appearance of the T. Rex in ''Anniversary''.
** She seems to be running on this in her celebratory 500 subs video.
** During the unboxing of the new ''Tomb Raider''. It did arrive a day later than expected, so, it's kinda justified.
* StockSoundEffects: The sound used for her little intro animation is actually that of a goat, not a sheep.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: During her livestream of ''Home'', she mentions that it's another 20 minutes before she's allowed a break, followed by this:
--> '''Nuttylamb''': [[BlatantLies Not that I'm scared or anything!]]
* SweetTooth: Aside from the general love of cookies, the only warm beverages she drinks are ridiculously sweet tea and hot chocolate.
* TemptingFate: She's prone to [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] it when her characters do this.
* TheScream: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZH1cxDRtTc0&t=9m10s This.]] At least she warned us in advance.
* TheStraightAndArrowPath: She's mentioned doing archery. She also owns a working crossbow that was given to her on Christmas.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Had these in ''Tomb Raider: Underworld'' once in a while, usually when she happened upon a difficult-looking puzzle. Also appears a lot during ''Deus Ex'', though mostly when confronted by a room full of enemies that she's inevitably going to have to take out. The following is from her ''Underworld'' playthrough, where she's just reached ''another'' trap-filled room.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': Okay. We're gonna find out what's in he - [[OhCrap Holy shit]]... [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Well, this looks painful.]]
* ThreateningShark: Weirdly enough, Nuttylamb averts this at first, showing no fear when she encounters sharks in ''Tomb Raider: Underworld''. Subsequently played straight in her playthrough of ''Batman: Arkham City'', where a particularly large specimen nearly bites Batman's head off, causing her to develop a fear of sharks. Whether this fear is actually permanent remains to be seen.
* TimeCompressionMontage: In her "Waiting for ''Tomb Raider''" video.
* TomboyishPonytail: Occasionally.
* TrashTalk: Gleefully engages in this once when, after having been killed quite a few times, she figures out how to get rid of the GiantSpider in ''Limbo''. This comes back to bite her in the ass pretty soon though, causing her [[HypocriticalHumor to berate the little kid for it after he respawns.]]
* {{Understatement}}: Describes Lara's running through fire, depleting nearly all her health, as ''getting a few first degree burns''.
* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: ''Teabagging''. She ''will'' endulge in this once or twice per playthrough and especially if a particular enemy has proven difficult to defeat. After having encountered the first giant spiders from ''Underworld'', two distinct types have been identified, thanks to one hilarious commenter. Conversation quoted below.
--> '''Viewer''': Anyone studying this for your end-of-term Let's Play exams, observe: The Rage Teabag.
--> '''Nuttylamb''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny 80% more thrusting than The Casual Teabag.]]
* UnstoppableRage: During her ''Anniversary'' playthrough, Nutty does get irritated during various sections of the game, but nothing so major as to call it actual rage-ing. Until the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly-named]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4A-Q09Yo_wc&t=11m20s Rage Episode]], that is. In it, she pretty much goes off the deep end when an incredibly difficult jump keeps failing. This is only partially her fault; she had gotten stuck and, with no idea how to progress, she had a quick check online using a visual walkthrough. Said walkthrough told her this difficult jump was the way to progress, even though that was in fact, not at all the correct way. She does make it eventually, though.
* VerbalTic: ''"Oh yeah"''. Granted, the frequency with which she uses it varies, but some of her videos have her using it every two seconds.
* VideoGameCaringPotential: In ''The Walking Dead'', where she attempts to avoid conflict and dotes quite a bit on Clementine.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: She has a little ''too'' much fun pushing people over in ''L.A. Noire''.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Her Skyrim character, ''Orc Von Awesomestein'', has dendrophobia[[note]]a fear of trees[[/note]], of all things.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Spiders?]]: The one thing that is virtually guaranteed to have her screaming in fear, while she's emptying everything within her arsenal upon the eight-legged terrors. Always followed by [[UnsportsmanlikeGloating victorious teabagging]]. Her reaction can be pretty comical at first, but her genuine fright usually makes you feel a little guilty afterwards. After her first two playthroughs, both containing shining examples of [[GiantSpider giant spiders]], she has politely requested to refrain from recommending anymore spider-filled games.
