''(rises up from behind the counter)''

Oh! Namaste. Didn't hear you come in. Greetings, and welcome to the summary page for ''Ask That Guy With the Glasses''.

''(cue "Moonlight Sonata")''

Ask That Guy is another character played by some nutjob named DougWalker on the site ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses''. The basic idea is that people send their questions to him, this robe-wearing, pipe-smoking, murderous and perverted nutjob, and he give them answers. [[BlackComedy Horrifically murderous, depraved, delicious answers.]]

[[RunningGag With onions.]]

[[VerbalTic Yes.]]

When adding examples, please state which episode(s) they are from.

----
!!Tropes used by Ask That Guy include:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: A-M]]
* AbusiveParents: We get this quite reserved speech about the worst way to die in episode 33:
-->'''ATG''': Because everything seems a million times worse with your parents. They would probably be standing there saying "No! You're screaming wrong! Are those really going to be last words? Don't die like that, die like this, it's more manly! I should have left you in that garbage can I found you in", that kind of thing.
** And this speech about why does Daddy hit Mommy in episode 12 is pretty obviously speaking from experience:
-->'''ATG''': Have you ever considered that maybe she deserves it? So many things can be deserving of a smack; like someone's attacking you, coming up at you with a weapon, or says something you disagree with. That deserves a smack most of all. Even if Mommy doesn't deserve a smack, he should probably smack her anyway. Why? To make up for the times he should have smacked her.
* {{Adorkable}}: When he actually acts like a human being. The hammy lip-syncing to "Bohemian Rhapsody" in episode 60 was almost... cute.
** Up until he kills her, the proposal bit in episode 54 was adorable. Especially seeing him genuinely happy for a change and hugging everyone at the con.
* AffablyEvil: He hardly ever loses his calm, polite demeanor, no matter how many murders he commits.
* AintTooProudToBeg: When he's actually scared.
* TheAlcoholic: His second setting is a bar.
* AlcoholicParent: Mommy Glasses. He hates her.
* AllTakeAndNoGive: His relationship with the narrator.
* [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Always Someone Darker]]: Bennett the Sage.
** And to everyone's surprise, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic in his reboot. The devil always treats Ask That Guy like a nuisance, but enjoys Critic's twisted brain in ''Film/TheCatInTheHat''.
* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: In episode 20.
* AnythingThatMoves: Lacking that, just ''anything''.
* ApologizesALot: The Narrator. When they have an argument about ATG closing his eyes when they make love which ends in ATG leaving, he tearfully begs that he's sorry. Ask That Guy [[PetTheDog then comes back and apologizes too]].
* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering?: "Now I know what you're thinking..."
* ArtifactTitle: "Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses" was (and is) a name used by DougWalker AsHimself; the original joke of the 'Ask That Guy' series was that it was supposedly a FourthWallMailSlot, but the 'real' DougWalker was even more demented than his characters like WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic. Since then of course Doug more often appears in videos out of character and 'Ask That Guy' has become a separate character in his own right.
* AssShove: Where he gets all of his ideas and also all of his prop items including his signature smoking pipe and his glasses.
* AttentionWhore: The "sink to any kind of depravity" kind.
* AxeCrazy: He finally got tired of explaining to a number of famous missing people why they were all tied up behind his refrigerator, and just murdered them.
** In an EvenEvilHasStandards moment, Ask That Guy lets Bennett the Sage answer some of his questions for him in Episode 44. Bennett's answers drive Ask That Guy into a terrified fetal position [[spoiler: before Bennett rapes him]].
* BargainWithHeaven: He has to pimp the bible or the Narnia books in return for being able to come back from the dead.
* BastardBoyfriend: His sadism is frequently played for sexual appeal.
* BelievingTheirOwnLies: There are things that hold up honestly, like being raped or shitty parenting etc., but he does genuinely believe for example that he got molested by an iceberg.
* BeneathTheMask: A really good use of the trope. The "mask" is a distinguished gentleman, underneath that is a bastard who likes playing with people, underneath ''that'' is a monster, and underneath '''that''' is a cesspool of self-loathing and damage.
* BerserkButton: Do not ask to borrow a cup of sugar. [[TalkToTheFist You'll regret it.]]
* BestialityIsDepraved: He made out with a dog and regrets mentioning it.
* BewareTheCuteOnes: Do NOT ask Mickey Mouse how old he is. Also doubles as BerserkButton.
* BigBrotherBully: They're the same age, but Critic still gets [[KickTheDog kicked]] a bit. Although other times, [[BigBrotherInstinct some care is shown or it's just light teasing]].
* BigScrewedUpFamily: ''Massively'' so. And with him and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic now confirmed to be related, it got even more fucked up.
* BigWordShout: "''''''DIIIIIIIEEEEEE!''''''"
* BlackComedy: Again. Including a extreme example where he says that [[spoiler: if he wanted to make a movie with no cliches whatsoever, he would make a movie with one hour and a half of blowing up babies. No plot, no character development, just blowing up babies.]] Oh, and his take on the venerable and vile TheAristocrats joke...
** When Sage appeared in one episode, he answered "How can Santa get into my house when I don't have a chimney?" with "He harnesses the power of aborted babies." The former reigning master of CrossesTheLineTwice was rather freaked out by this.
** More recently has mentioned getting off of shoving live babies up his anus. When they fall out, he shoots them with his cybernetic machinegun penis.
* BlackComedyRape: Zigzagged in ''Ask That Guy VIOLATES Ma-Ti''.
** After an episode of striking the fear of God into Ask That Guy, Sage gleefully drags him off to rape him. Canonically, he pissed in his mouth, gave him a facial and fucked him in his stab wounds before getting bored.
* BlatantLies: In a recent video he was asked if he was standing in front of a green screen. He then turns to grab a bottle of whiskey, poured it into a glass, drank it, then looked at the screen and said, "Yup".
** Episode 20: "I'm not gay in any way." This should be self-explanatory.
* BlindWithoutEm: He walks right into his bookcase when he takes his glasses off.
* [[GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals Boys Love Stuffed Animals]]: Seriously, how many cuddly toys does Doug have?
* BrainsAndBondage: While [[CaptainObvious horribly evil]], he is smart and has enjoyed the usage of leashes and handcuffs.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: One of the key aspects of his humor.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: His response to "Why are you, the Critic, Chester A. Bum [LongList of all Doug's characters] never onscreen together?"
-->'''Ask That Guy''': Because we're all the same actor, idiot!
** In Episode 56:
-->'''Narrator''': Blood Beard Joe is so awesome that...
-->'''Ask That Guy''': Wrong show. Next.
** In Episode 58:
-->''' ATG shoots the Hummel Figurine'''
-->''' HF: "You know I'll be back, [[JokerImmunity I'm a fan favorite!]]"'''
* BreakTheHaughty: Episode 62 where he's forced to dress up in a humiliating costume and sing "I'm A Little Teapot" whenever he's particularly rude to someone. "I feel raped."
* BreathlessNonSequitur: When asked why MickeyMouse wears pants but no shirt and DonaldDuck wears a shirt but no pants, he spends several minutes outlining a complex history about Mickey, being ahead of his time, practicing being shirtless in order to get the role of Jacob from ''{{Twilight}}''. Then right at the end he casually adds "And Donald doesn't wear pants because he's a perv". (Also kind of an example of TranslationYes).
* BrickJoke: Episode sixty. The question "Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?" gets a perfectly straightforward answer, with Ask That Guy seemingly completely unaware the asker is WaxingLyrical, leaving the narrator confused and disappointed. Later in that same episode, he responds to the question [[Film/PulpFiction "Does he look like a bitch?"]] with a lengthy, over-the-top rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody". During which he spikes his pipe and breaks it.
* BrokenRecord: The Hummel figurine goes into pain every time she says ow. Also, the most annoying song in the world.
* BrokenSmile: That insane grin can falter a lot.
* ButNotTooBi: Unavoidable with his violent sexual tastes and the one-man nature of the show, but to Doug's credit he does the best he can under the circumstances, with an actual relationship with the Narrator, Bad Touch with Sage and Ma-Ti, and a barrel-load of LGBTFanbase {{fanservice}}.
* CanonDiscontinuity: In episode 13, he's really pissed off at the show "Doug". That issue moved onto the Critic and ATG's name is basically now... Ask That Guy.
* CaptainObvious: "Have you been naughty or nice?" What do you think the answer's going to be?
* CardCarryingVillain: Has fully admitted he's evil and twisted.
* CargoShip: He [[{{In-Universe}} married]] his GPS (voiced by Doug's real-life wife) before killing her/it. Also has a rather close relationship with his pipe.
* TheCasanova: A lot of people must be {{Nightmare Fetishist}}s, because he gets laid ''a lot''. In a later episode, he whimpers that he has no ability to call anyone back after sex.
* CatchPhrase
** ''(reads his book)'' "Oh! [variant of "hello"]...didn't hear you come in."
** "There is no such thing as a stupid question until ''you'' ask it."
** "That's a very good question."
** "Yes."
** "With onions."
*** "And [[InherentlyFunnyWords kumquats]]."
** "Hamster Jelly."
** "Now I know what you're thinking," which nine times out of ten leads to [[RefugeInAudacity something even more disturbing]].
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He wasn't as evil, damaged or sexualised when he first started as he is now. Doug even confirms this at a con, he began as a weird idiot who got every answer wrong and then evolved into a sadistic freak of nature.
* CharacterTitle
* CheshireCatGrin: When he's not SlasherSmile-ing.
* ChildByRape: A crazy woman forced him to have sex with her, and when the resulting baby grows up and asks him why he left, he gives him or her an angry TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
* ChildHater: He slaughtered children in an orphanage for kicks.
* ChubbyChaser: The book page he was constantly "reading" turned out to be a picture of a BBW.
* ClosetGeek: He's just a big a nerd as the people he makes fun of, so much so that he's even done ''Series/{{Star Trek|Voyager}}'' fanfiction - SelfInsertFic, no less, with him and Janeway fucking. He quotes ''{{It}}'' in episode 58 and looks ashamed of himself.
* CloudCuckoolander: In some episodes, he's really just kooky and strange instead of the batshit sadist we want to... [[LastSecondWordSwap love]].
* CollectiveGroan: After answering "what's the capital of New Jersey" with "the letter N". He doesn't take the reaction well.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: Boils and souls.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When asked "Spit or swallow?", he responded that what he does with his toothpaste is his own business[[note]]In episode 43, we found out that he spits[[/note]].
* {{Continuity}}: Episode 69, which followed ''ToBoldlyFlee'', brings strong continuity to the series for the first time, taking place after the Coke party held by the cast. [=ThatGuy=] is lying on the couch in the same room as the party, recovering from a hangover. And at the end, we get the series' first 'ToBeContinued' ending.
** ContinuityCreep: Even before then, while keeping a very loose canon, the {{running gag}}s of getting more pathetic and emotional, playing TheMasochismTango with the narrator, the OddFriendship with the Hummel figurine and the nightmarish backstory all increased with frequency when he moved into the bar.
* ControlFreak: He has a screaming tantrum when someone "ruins his Christmas" with a [[FelonyMisdemeanor dumb question]].
* CreatorBacklash: As much as Doug loves doing the character, it's the only show he can't watch because he'd feel ashamed of the dark comedy.
* CrossdressingVoices: Doug voices the Hummel figurine with his usual EvilSoundsDeep voice, but it's female. This gets brought up by Ask That Guy when he's firing questions surrounding all the {{Plot Hole}}s with her.
* CuteAndPsycho: There's a fuckload of crazy behind that smile.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [=Yardoz=] is just quoting the [[{{Zardoz}} obvious]] when he tells Ask That Guy that he was raised up from brutality, but it still fits pretty well.
* ADateWithRosiePalms:
-->'''Ask That Guy:''' I'm going to laugh at you in the corner while I touch myself.
* DeadpanSnarker: Ask That Guy. The narrator sometimes gets in on it too.
* DealWithTheDevil: He made one for his robe.
* DepravedBisexual: References to (usually violent) sex with both genders have been made frequently.
-->'''ATG''': That's why bisexual people are the only equal opportunists out there.
* DiminishingVillainThreat: He's always been sadistic and evil, but never really scary despite what people thought. The SanitySlippage storyline has made it obvious, you can't really be scared of someone who rants about "JELLY SIDE DOWN!" and then whimpers that he has a headache.
** The Hummel figurine is also becoming a bit of a ButtMonkey.
* DisposableSexWorker: He's killed at least twenty seven.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: Parodied.
* DistressedDude: With Sage taking over and refusing to let him leave.
* DontLookAtMe: He screams it when he mistakenly reveals he tried to fuck a termite.
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Averted. See the second example of RapeAsBackstory.
* DrivenToSuicide: "And you'll stand at the edge of that cliff, and you'll ask yourself, what's the point? There is no point is there. There's only the empty void."
* DrJerk: "Doctor Love" raped him.
* DudeShesLikeInAComa: With Ma-Ti, although that was the intention.
* DyingAlone: He knows he'll die alone and forgotten.
* EarlyBirdCameo: The Hummel figurine got pulled out of his ass in episode twenty five, but didn't appear regularly until episode 45.
** Before they got on the site, you can see Linkara and Paw amongst others in the user edition episode.
* EldritchAbomination: The Hummel figurine.
* EqualOpportunityEvil: He's disgustingly racist to possibly every color in the world.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Forty-two seconds into the first episode, he advises the question-asker to impale an animal on a spike so an underground war can be started.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ask That Guy is the master of depravity, thinking he didn't even have any standards. Until [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/ask-thatguy/14608-ep044 Bennett the Sage shows up]]. See the NightmareFetishist extraordinaire sobbing in the corner, while you wish you could join him there. Pass the BrainBleach, please. [[spoiler:No! On second thought, no bleach!]]
** Even he is horrified by the "cruel torture" that is ''[[spoiler:Literature/{{Twilight}}.]]''
-->'''Ask That Guy''': ''Never again...''
** In episode 58, the Devil himself has to voice over an answer that he believes is too messed up for anyone to hear. Then he has to fast forward through another answer because, "even the imagery is too disturbing".
** From Episode 17:
--> ...I'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole.
** He's devised a special place in hell for the people who watch the TGWTG DVD illegally.
** Disney is an evil cooperation that needs to be stopped.
** Who could forget this little gem.
--> '''Announcer:''' I saw daddy kissing Santa Claus. How do I tell mom?
--> '''That Guy:''' Uhh, I wouldn't tell mom as much as a psychiatrist. Believe me this will affect you for the rest of your life....Don't ever write me again.
** He runs away screaming like a little girl at "Two Girls, One Cup" and will never be the same.
** Even he feels dirty in the stinger of Episode 66, where he tells a (presumably) disabled person that [[ItMakesSenseInContext walking is sexier than putting rims on a wheelchair]].
** Even the ATG is horrified when someone asks whether or not Ted Turner raped the Taco Bell Chihuahua.
** Episode 46 has someone say they blew their budget on cocaine and so they decorated their house by killing a newborn and decorating with its organs. That Guy is speechless with horror, but eventually manages to blurt out, "...Sage? Is that you?"
* EverybodyHatesMathematics: He failed it in eighth grade.
* EvilCounterpart: To Critic, as his humanity and pathetic side always seem to pop up against his will nowadays.
* EvilerThanThou: Ask That Guy vs. Bennett the Sage. [[spoiler: Sage wins.]]
* EvilLaugh: Before they got acquainted, the devil does this when Ask That Guy hopes that being told he'll stay in hell forever was just a dream.
* EvilMatriarch: She fucked him up good. As early as episode eight, he says the only good mother is a dead one with her heart deep fried in several herbs and spices.
* EvilSoundsDeep: His voice has the unnerving tendency to [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: drop a couple of octaves without warning. ]]

** The Hummel figurine, even when she's being a ButtMonkey.
* EvilTastesGood: It tastes like jelly.
* EvilUncle: Bad enough for him to have fantasies about eating him with Grandmother sauce.
* EyeScream: He stole [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Data's]] eyes and took them as his own because he shot himself.
* EyeTake: Doug is evidently talented at this trope.
* FanDisservice: In episode 49, the porn music comes on and all he does in baww like a sheep.
** While his sluttiness has been used for plenty of {{fanservice}}, he's also pretty riddled with STDs.
** In episode 48, he gets asked the tootsie pop question. He gets one out, starts licking and you'll expect some nice EroticEating action, but he gets shot by an owl three licks in.
* {{Fanservice}}: In episode 45, he fucks himself with his pipe. There's also a minute of orgasm faces when he imagines what he would do with a pair of reindeer antlers.
** He kisses his foot in episode 59. Even better? He's so flexible he can do standing up.
** The "naughty or nice" pipe-blowjob. Sweet heavenly Jesus. And in the same episode, the response to the eggnog question where he voices both the male and female having violent, loud sex.
** Getting totally dominated by Sage in episode 44. Terrifying too of course, but as has been said elsewhere, it came at the exact same time as another [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic one]] of Doug's characters getting [[BlackComedyRape broken]].
** In episode 53, he's wearing an edible thong.
** In episode 61, he gets a blowjob from a wolf girl thing and the gorgeous orgasm faces come back. It turns into FanDisservice when it becomes a ravaging GroinAttack, but switches back again when it turns out he enjoyed it.
** The JumpCut to ShirtlessScene in episode 69. No reason for it other than Doug wanting to make the female audience happy.
* FascinatingEyebrow: The title-card art always has this.
* FauxAffablyEvil: That Guy.
* FemaleGaze: If you look on the comment sections, responses from guys are nearly always a mix of [[StupidSexyFlanders "...Doug's turning me gay" and "STOP WITH THE SEX JOKES!"]].
* {{Fetish}}: If we listed them all, we'd be here all day.
* FormerlyFat: He was the size of a bulldozer and it made him feel dead inside.
* FourEyesZeroSoul
* FourthWallMailslot: A parody of the concept.
* FreezeFrameBonus: In Episode 65, he shows us a list of the "many things I would do for a billion dollars" for one frame, then adds: "How dare you pause to read that? You're going to hell!"
** By the way, the text says: [[spoiler: Really? You went back to read this knowing it would lead you straight to Hell? What the Ass-Puke is wrong with you? It's friggin' Hell! Fire, pain, the Devil, it's worth that just to find out what this said? That Guy with the Glasses was actually kidding when he said you were going to Hell, but now that you've actually come back to pause it, we have no choice. You're going to Lem. It's a place like Hell only ten times worse. It's not written about in the Bible because every time somebody tried writing about it, they'd cut their own head off. It's THAT bad. So I hope you it was worth it, I hope it was worth pausing this video for that. See ya in Lem ya miserable piece of donkey rectum. En-friggin'-joy!]]
* FreudianExcuse: Bad relationships with women, abusive parents and getting raped at least three times when he was younger.
* FunWithAcronyms: ROFL means "'''R'''aunchy '''O'''rgasming '''F'''art '''L'''ickers".
* {{Gasshole}}: He can fart like a Mexican. Kinda puts a small damper on the whole TheCasanova thing he's got going.
* GeniusBonus: He gives an in-universe shout-out to all two Arthur Miller fans who got the speech in episode 42.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: While a woman dying surrounded a million naked ladies wouldn't be the best death for her, it would be awesome for him to watch.
** He's also kidnapped lesbians and is also holding them hostage under his bar.
* GroinAttack: Done by Sage when Ask That Guy tries to kill him.
** He tried sticking his penis into a blender and it now looks like kibbles and bits.
** The devil once ate his cock, and not in the fun way.
** Ninjas that are neither male or female will fuck up testes so hard that they'll never be the same color again.
* {{Guyliner}}: For no reason (or perhaps [[DepravedBisexual one]]), he's wearing some in episode 32.
* HappyMarriageCharade: He's married to an Indonesian little person called "My Job" and gets desperate. He also has a wife, gets no attention and so is cheating on her with a guy called Jose.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: Although as you can tell, that died a flaming death very quickly.
* TheHedonist
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Mickey Mouse turns him into a robot version of himself when he reveals Disneyland is really a terrible place that kills people.
* HeManWomanHater: He has some serious issues with them.
-->'''ATG''': That way they can be more independent as well as equal. Except for when it comes to paying for meals, or asking them out on a date, or proposing... tch yeah that never happens, and when a ladybug goes PMS-ing... pfft there's no equality there! It's all about "I feel so lonely! I feel so alone!". Gender equality, my ass!
* HomoeroticSubtext: He's married to an Indonesian guy, has had sex with Linkara, will fuck anything with a pulse and has an abusive relationship with his narrator. He's also rather happy with the idea of shirtless, muscle-bound men.
* HotAsHell: The devil can turn into a dominatrix woman called Vanessa.
* HumiliationConga: You could say he's been having an ongoing one all this year (see SanitySlippage), but episode 62 just gleefully poked the bear until he cried.
* HypocriticalHumor: In episode 57, he is asked "Why did you answer 'Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit?' twice?" and promises to never answer the same question twice again. He then goes on to answer "Who framed Roger Rabbit?" for a third time. Furthermore, when the video premiered during the Donation Drive it looped back to the start of the video, causing him to answer "Why did you answer 'Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit?' twice?" twice.
** Says that being a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Brony]] is worse than being a {{furry| fandom}}, even though he's confessed to being a Brony.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: He strokes a cameraman's neck with a creepy expression on his face before snapping it.
** He gets to know what it's like when Sage strokes his face and tells he's been good while he cowers.
** He also pets Ma-Ti when he's knocked out on the couch. He gets to taking off the CaptainPlanet shirt before Ma-Ti wakes up and violently stops him.
* IKissYourFoot: In episode 59, after answering a question about why women's feet are beautiful, That Guy proceeded to explain that they are not, they're actually disgusting. He then lectured the person who asked the question to see a doctor, because he is not normal like him. [[HypocriticalHumor He then kisses his own foot.]]
* ILoveTheDead
* ImAHumanitarian: His solution to ending world hunger is eat the hungry, the vegetarians and the people who like math.
* {{Immortality}}: He can't die properly because he sold his soul to the devil.
* {{Incubus}}: He goes into peoples' dreams and fulfills all their sexual fantasies. He then gives them a world of pain.
* InfantImmortality: Averted. Did we mention he likes killing kids?
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: His ego is "always drowning and always thirsty". When one person asked if they were smarter than him, he reenacted the person getting hanged.
* InherentlyFunnyWords: "Hamster Jelly".
* InsecureLoveInterest: Even though he has vast amounts of undeserved love from the narrator, he'd rather be told how worthless he is and play the abused HouseHusband.
* InternalizedCategorism: Turning gay pride into gay shame is his job. Bear in mind that he's a [[DepravedBisexual Depraved Omnisexual]].
* ItsAllAboutMe
* IWantMyMommy: In episode 62, when the intro music fails to start after he gives his greeting, he gets noticeably nervous, looks around in a scared manner for a moment, then screams "MOMMY!!!" right before the music starts, to which he gives a relived "Oh thank God!"
* JadedWashout: He's still suave, witty and evil, but he's also becoming much more of a pathetic waste of space and he knows it.
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Sometimes he'll have proper PetTheDog moments, but most of the time he'll be lying.
* {{Joisey}}: He's from New Jersey, the place of death and despair.
* JumpCut: Yes.
* JumpScare: in Episode 5, there's a question about how to avoid screamers. [[TemptingFate Guess what happens.]]
* KidAnova: A dark use of the trope. To get himself an A in gym, he did sexual favors for his gym teacher. He regrets it, and so does the teacher.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Not ''quite'' the same as Critic's ditziness, but he's proven he's TooDumbToLive too by thinking his blood was alcohol.
-->'''ATG''': You have to believe me, I'm the internet! And people on the internet are never wrong, they're just never right. How ruggish.
* LackOfEmpathy
* LampshadedTheObscureReference: "[[{{Patton}} You magnificent bastard, have you read my book?]]''
--> '''ATG''': No, I haven't read your book... [[TheExorcist because it is NOT in the FILE! It's NOT]]!! Obscure references are AWESOME!!! *Dances to yodeling music*
* LampshadeHanging: Even he doesn't know how the Hummel figurine appears in front of the camera while he disappears.
* LargeHam: When he gets worked up.
* LaughingMad: In episode 57, in response to "[[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus You know what I mean?]]".
** Also in episode 60, where he laughs manically at a mother cat and a litter of kittens being eaten.
* LeanAndMean: He manages to still look skinny even in a fairly bulky robe.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Ask That Guy always has soft classical music around whenever he appears, usually Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, first movement.
** In episode 62, he goes immediately into a [[VillainousBreakdown psychological meltdown]] when the music doesn't play quite when it's supposed to.
* LimitedWardrobe: Lampshaded. He has a whole closet of blue robes, an entire drawer of red scarves, an room full of glasses, a mansion full of beards and museum filled with buttcheeks.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Or at least in his rather biased view.
* LongList: Of porn movies he's done in episode 65. "But hey, I'm only starting out."
* LoveMartyr: The Narrator. For the love of God, man, find a nicer show.
* MadLibsCatchPhrase: (Looks up, closes his book.) "Oh, hello [[LampshadeHanging in a language you don't understand and won't bother to look up]]. Didn't hear you come in." It's always hello in a foreign language or slang from around the world.
* ManipulativeBastard: He might be falling apart now, but it's always been easy for him to twist people around his little finger.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: DougWalker, who other TGWTG contributors agree is an almost absurdly {{nice guy}}, says that he suspends his niceness to act like a screwed-up freak as Ask That Guy and doesn't even like to watch the results.
* MediumAwareness: There are times when he's well aware he's a fictional character.
* [[WomenPreferStrongMen Men Prefer Strong Men]]: He's a slut who'll go down on anyone, but his homoerotic fantasies tend to be about muscular guys.
* MessyHair: When Doug lets it grow out, at least. It's so fluffy! Turns out that he does it on purpose.
* MilestoneCelebration: For the 50th, he and the Narrator got a RelationshipUpgrade and were revealed to be sleeping together. While it might not seem as epic as other contributor celebrations, it became important for CharacterDevelopment in following episodes.
* MisterSeahorse: But instead of pushing a baby out, he's pushing a baby in.
* MoodSwinger: He's just as good as Critic at going from calm to happy to angry to tears.
* MoodWhiplash: In episode 55, he gets really into quoting the speech from ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'', breaks down after the "shooting"... and then makes a joke about Creator/HarrisonFord.
** In episode 54, the figurine kills herself and he respectfully salutes... before cheerfully asking for the next question.
** In episode 61, it starts with Ask That Guy depressed about his broken pipe and sitting on a TraumaSwing, before segueing into a ''{{Zardoz}}'' parody.
* MotorMouth: Wouldn't be a DougWalker character without it.
* MrFanservice: Just have a look at the {{fanservice}} entries.
* MyBelovedSmother: He has a lot of fantasies about his mom dying in gruesome ways, but he's still too under her control to kill her.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After the puppy-throwing incident. "My God, what's wrong with me?"
** After admitting he's a necrophiliac. "Oh my God I'm a horrible person."
** He says maybe he should stop playing God, as he's made so many people die from cancer.
* VomitDiscretionShot: In episode 24.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: N-Z]]
* TenMinuteRetirement: In episode fifteen, he gets tired of all the nitpicky questions and wants to quit. We're up to sixty plus episodes now, so you should know it didn't take.
* {{Narcissist}}: This much should be obvious. The narrator too, as he's called himself a Goddess.
* NeckSnap: Done to an unfortunate cameraman and Scrappy Doo.
* NeverLearnedToRead: Although he can read hidroglyphics.
* NiceHat: D'aww, lookit the cute widdle Santa hat!
* NietzscheWannabe: After one particularly long rant about how evil always wins, Doug shuts him up by making him disappear.
* NightmareFetishist
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant
* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: His view on a prostitute who's making him face criminal charges on a Thursday.
* NotSoAboveItAll: He has a heart attack from a screamer he himself put on the screen. And in episode 51, he has a big not so ClosetGeek rant about the shitty finale of ''{{Lost}}''.
* ObfuscatingDisability: He pretended to be blind so his watchdog could murder people and nobody would mind.
* {{Omniglot}}: He can speak any language, he just doesn't want to.
* OneOfUs: Like the Critic, he's made references to TV Tropes. He's probably reading right now.
* OnlyAFleshWound: Says that the Hummel figurine suffered this after shooting it.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Doug can't always keep the character's ChildHater personality up, and will occasionally slip to hate someone for letting kids starve or to defend Music/JustinBieber for "being a little boy whose music you don't have to listen to".
* OverlyLongGag: The length of the "Smurfette gets gang-raped all the time" makes it more uncomfortable.
* PapaWolf: In the ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'' special, Doug-through-ATG slaughters the people who complain about their hated contributor being there and vice versa.
* PeripheryDemographic: In-universe. As of episode 63, Ask That Guy has been outed as a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic brony]]. (The character, rather his creator - Doug actually doesn't watch the show himself and merely looked it up on {{Wikipedia}}.)
* PerverseSexualLust: For Jessica Rabbit of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. Also, almost every other form of lust that ATG exhibits.
* PetTheDog: He breaks up the Anniversary Brawl, claiming violence isn't the answer, and the reviewers and gamers should unite and make crossovers.
** He also appears in WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob's ''Caligula'' review to give straightforward (if flawed) historical information about the film's setting. This may be a subtle joke on the fact that the film's content is as horrific as the sort of things Ask That Guy normally talks about.
** He's on the side on the reviewers in ''SuburbanKnights'' and helps Team B find out where the gauntlet is.
** In episode 11, he says that both Haley Joel Esmont and Johnathon Taylor Thomas have talent. Lampshaded after by asking where he is.
** In episode 29, he gives a sensible answer on how you shouldn't reuse condoms.
-->'''ATG''': What? They don't all have to be funny!
** He does love the Narrator in his own sick, twisted way.
* PiecesOfGod: [[PowerRangers Zordon]] is one of God's testicles. The other one is Oprah.
* PornNames: "Cuntasaurus".
* PrecisionFStrike: After an extended Queen tribute during which That Guy spikes his pipe. Once the episode is finished and the credits have rolled, they cut back to Doug, now out of character:
--->'''Doug''': Ladies and gentlemen, I have bad news.
--->''*Camera pans to the pipe, which has been broken neatly in two*''
--->'''Doug''': ''FUCK.''
* PrematurelyBald: But it's okay, he's covering it up with Canada.
* PrettyBoy: And he knows it full well.
* PsychopathicManchild: The best way to enslave a nation is to put everyone in detention. "It totally blows!" He also delighted in watching his furby die.
* PyroManiac: Dying by being on fire is an awesome way to go.
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: "And you'll be asking yourself why have you left me, Lord? Why have you forsaken me and left me in this tenth level of hell? And he'll of course never answer you, he's an a-hole."
* RaisedCatholic: And has slightly more issues with the religion than Critic does.
* RapeAsBackstory: He was raped by a doctor. He was also raped by a woman, is actually upset about it, ran away because he was scared shitless and takes his anger out on the offspring. [[RuleOfThree And]] he was forced to lose his virginity to a forty year old gym teacher so he could get an A. While those are sane enough to be considered real, there are things that [[BelievingTheirOwnLies he cries about that can't be]]:
-->'''ATG''': An iceberg molested me.
* RavenHairIvorySkin[=/=]EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: He's pale and disturbing, but is a MrFanservice and ''knows it''.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Blowing up the bookcase at the end of [[http://askthatguy.blip.tv/file/3779072/ Ep. 52]] was presumably done to create a [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/video-updates/26888-dougsebay reason for the change in location.]]
* RelationshipUpgrade: The narrator started off just reading out questions before becoming his own woobified, LoveMartyr character.
* RickRoll: He gives us one in episode 17. He doesn't fancy our chances at spotting one.
* RoundedCharacter: For such a creation based on evil, he's surprisingly fleshed out.
* RunningGag: "Who framed Roger Rabbit?"
* SadClown: Like Critic, he's funny because his life is miserable.
* SanitySlippage: By 2011, he's been losing it more and more: crying easily, getting more frustrated at questions and having a really co-dependent, abusive relationship with his narrator. Maybe the Critic's unhappiness with life is rubbing off on him.
* SarcasmFailure: Happens when there's a question that's far too insane for him to answer.
* ScheduleSlip: Because of the Critic being Doug's main show, there can be months before there's a new ATG. The episodes ''are'' longer though, and not just two/three minutes like they were in the beginning. There's also hints of a storyline with his SanitySlippage thus far.
** As of 2014, there hasn't been a new Ask That Guy episode in over a year (if one doesn't count the [=DVDs=]).
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl
* ScrewYourself: He [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/ask-thatguy/1440-ask-thatguy-episode-20 suggests this when asked what would happen if one met one's past self when time travelling]]. He then acts out a love scene with himself.
* SerialKiller: Mostly for funsies.
* SeriesHiatus: There hasn't been a new episode for a ''long'' while. 'Explained' by Doug in the 2013 Charity Drive, as he responded to "where's Ask That Guy?" with essentially "people demanded more Critic so that's what they're getting instead of anything else".
* SexIsViolence: The offscreen sex in episode 43 sounds... rough, to put it mildly.
* {{Shotacon}} At least he's aware it's sick.
* ShoutOut: References to the Critic's show have been made a lot, leading people to believe that he watches Critic but not vice versa.
* ShownTheirWork: For someone who only saw a few episodes of WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic and thought it cute, Doug was surprisingly knowledgeable about Twilight's social anxiety and Rainbow's InferioritySuperiorityComplex.
* ShutUpHannibal: In episode 15, after he rants about how he's not a fictional character and evil always wins, Doug gets rid of him. (Don't worry, he comes back.)
* SigningOffCatchPhrase: "This is That Guy With The Glasses saying there is no such thing as a stupid question until ''you ask it''."
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids
* SissyVillain
* SlasherSmile: The undisputed king of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. Not even Sage beat him in that area.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SoftspokenSadist: Most of the time. Just don't piss him off, scare him or ask something that's too close to home.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: In episode 10, Ask That Guy says he used to like watching a woman through binoculars, especially when she was changing or showering. He says nothing for a beat while the stem of his pipe rises.
** A similar scene occurs in episode 56 when thinking about [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Roger Rabbit's]] wife.
* SoOkayItsAverage: His in-universe opinion of ''Film/AmericanBeauty''.
* SoundtrackDissonance: A slow version of "Sweet Home Alabama" plays while he walks across his neighborhood with a SlasherSmile and a gun.
** In more general terms, his {{leitmotif}} is nice and calming while he's the opposite.
* {{Squee}}: One notable incident was him scrambling eagerly for a cookie.
* StalkerWithACrush: He killed a guy's dog and watches him while he sleeps "deliciously".
* StayInTheKitchen: In his ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fanfiction, he responds to Janeway giving him orders by telling her to get back in the kitchen and start making babies.
* STDImmunity: Often disgustingly averted. Sleep with him and you'll probably die soon. That's if he didn't kill you personally.
* StepfordSmiler: [[ShipTease Weirdly]], even moreso in a world where WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic was never born.]
* StrawHypocrite: Whenever he bashes someone else's kinks. This is a man whose list of {{fetish}}es are as long as this page.
* StunnedSilence: Used when he thinks that the person writing the question has either [[CrossingTheLineTwice crossed the line]] or is just that disturbing. Yes, there are some things that even That Guy finds deplorable. And this is from someone who sold his soul to the Devil, kidnapped celebrities and hid them behind the fridge and then murdered them, among other things.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Check the comments for episode 43. You'll see a few male fans saying that the "naughty or nice" response made them question their sexuality.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: In Episode 56 he answers a question about "the most annoying song in the world" by simply repeatedly shouting "THIS IS THE MOST ANNOYING SONG IN THE WOOORLD!", even pointing out it can be used this way (with demonstrations!). This has also been remixed a couple of times in various Youtube videos.
* SustainedMisunderstanding: Episode 51. Did somebody say [=McDonalds=]?
* TakeThat: In a backwards world, MatthewBroderick would start having talent.
** He can't think of anything good at White Castle.
** When he takes his glasses off and becomes a moron, he wants another ''Franchise/StarWars'' movie.
** Episode 38 has the inevitable jab at ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''.
** Episode 68 had one against the Kony campaign, the viral message done by Invisible Children and backfired badly when people found out that they didn't actually want to help Uganda at all.
** In-character example. In episode 61 when he's arguing with Yardoz about man-hate, he asks mockingly if the head got his heart broken on prom night, a possible dig at the Critic crying about getting date-raped at prom in Spooning With Spoony II.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Attractive, cruel, gets himself laid all the time, arrogant and thinks he's SurroundedByIdiots.
* TearsOfFear: Understandably due to Sage.
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: According to him, "she" in that gag is ObscurusLupa[[note]]Given the site-wide running gag that all of TGWTG's contributors are in love with her, it makes a kind of sense[[/note]].
* ThereAreNoTherapists: "Good God, I really need to talk to someone." Although to be fair, he doesn't think they're real doctors and no therapist would be able to withstand his crazy.
* TogetherInDeath: In the second DVD, he shoots himself immediately after he shot the narrator for kicks. Doug declares it too depressing and tries to make him do another scene. Ask That Guy then sticks his pipe into a toy puppy's behind.
* TooKinkyToTorture: While clearly not enjoying Sage's abuse, what line did we get in the very next episode? "I'm ready to go down on anyone and anything." He also gets punished by Satan (his boss) whether he does a good or bad job.
* TooMuchInformation: Constantly.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Onions and kumquats.
* TraumaSwing: In episode 54 when he's miserable about his marriage falling apart. Also in episode 61 where he's mourning his broken pipe.
* TroubledButCute: "God I have issues."
* TroubledFetalPosition: In episode 44, after being broken by Sage.
* {{Twincest}}: In episode 54, he says intense, passionate het incest isn't kinky enough for him. Seeing as how Doug knows about the fanfic (this was done the day after a lot of the KinkMeme was read on a stream) and sadistic Ask That Guy/Critic is mind-meltingly popular, it was probably an intentional tease.
* TwistedChristmas: Or to be more specific; a twisted, [[BennettTheSage scary]], sex-obsessed Christmas with a lot of softcore porn.
* {{Understatement}}: ThePhantomOfTheOpera is an odd man.
* VerbalTic: In every episode, he ends his first answer with a soft "Yes."
* VillainousBreakdown: A ''lot''.
** Episode 6 has him screaming "Get out of my mind!" when someone asks "How dead is the dead sea?".
** Episode fourteen has him lose his patience at the questions and try to quit, crying "What do you want from me?".
** Episode 17 has:
-->'''ATG''': I don't care, my life is a lie. *cries*
** Episode 18 has "JESUS HELP ME!" after extolling the virtues of drugs.
** Episode 30 has him getting asked "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?". He has a crying fit and turns the questions around to the viewers.
** In Episode 43, after getting a normal question about woodchucks with the words "...in December" tacked on, he has a whiny tantrum about people ruining his holiday.
** In Episode 51, he loses it while trying to tell everyone how Disney is a giant deathtrap.
** Episode 55 involves him getting caught up in a speech from ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'' and very nearly falling apart.
** He has a pretty bad one in episode 57.
-->"STOP IT! YOU'RE A GROWN MAN NOW! *sobs* YOU MUST MOVE BEYOND THAT!! DAMN YOU! DAMN YOU AND YOUR WAYS! *sobs some more* *sniff* I apologize. I must now kiss Bill Clinton."
** Done in the very next episode too, where he tries pulling his "mask" off and then breaks down crying.
-->"Ow! Ow! OWWWW! So stupid!"
** Episode 61 has him get one of these after repeatedly getting the question "True or false?", and trying desperately to ask what exactly is true or false. He snaps out of it, and asks what the question was again, then immediately declares false.
** Episode 62 has him fall apart just because his theme music doesn't play when it normally does.
** Episode 63 features a breakdown at the end because he just wants to like "[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic girls' shows]]."
** Episode 67 has a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment when he's wailing about how he hates his job because he just made millions of people kill themselves. He lampshades this by saying his humanity comes out every so often and he usually squashes it with his inner hatred.
* VillainousCrossdresser: According to one video, "he" is actually a gay pedophile woman.
** WholesomeCrossdresser: According to That Guy, [[spoiler:[[CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Linka]] is actually Linkara.]]
* VillainProtagonist
* VocalEvolution: He didn't always have a slightly high, put-on-posh voice.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The one question he doesn't have an answer for is "How can I adjust to the different climate when moving from a warm Mediterranean island to the UK."
* WhatBeautifulEyes: A very pretty green.
* WhoWouldWantToWatchUs: He angrily denies the idea that he could be a fictional character created by "a good, rational person with, ugh, a conscience! Wouldn't he have had the decency to get rid of me by now?"
* WineIsClassy: His new location is in a home bar, where he now holds a martini instead of his traditional book.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds- [=YardOz=] is lonely....
* WouldHitAGirl: Also kill, torture, abuse, rape...
* WouldHurtAChild: As well as kidnapping and murder, he threatened a director's child and he now has a movie deal.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: At a con, Doug said that Ask That Guy would win against all his other characters in a fight using this. "Please don't hurt me!" *torture* "I'm unarmed!" *shooty-times*.
* YouBastard: Ma-Ti to the viewers in "Ask That Guy VIOLATES Ma-Ti". He points out how fucked up it is you actually clicked on that link, and tells you to go outside or something. ([[HypocriticalHumor Then]] [[spoiler:he rapes Ask That Guy because that's what people wanted to see.]])
* YourAnswerToEverything: Death. Sacrifice, suicide, ninja-killing, disproportionate murder and so on.
* YourHeadASplode: In #60.
