Paw Dugan (Paul Schuler) is the resident music guru at Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com. The scruffy faced sonic critic tackles everything from music videos, tunes from past, present, and future, video game music specials, being a Let's Player with fellow That Guy With The Glasses personality and all around lovely geek girl PushingUpRoses, and co-hosting the official TGWTG podcast ''Transmission Awesome''. He also hosts a review series called ''Music Movies'' in which he reviews [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin movies that prominently feature music]].

----
!!This reviewer provides examples of:

* {{Adorkable}}: Come on, the guy has a pair of "Dress Headphones" that look exactly like his normal ones. If that doesn't put the [[PowerLevels Adorkable Rating]] squarely [[MemeticMutation Over 9000]], nothing does.
** His table is named Dave.
* AntiVillain: The Dart Board seems to be a mix between types 1 and 3.
* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: In the Let's Play of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', every time it appears that [[TheScrappy Cedric]] has been killed or lost Paw cheers loudly that Cedric is finally gone.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Not intentionally invoked in KingsQuestII Redux, but by Paw.
----> Possum: I was robbed by a dwarf!
----> Narrator: For a moment you are not sure you heard correctly
----> Paw (In a lemony voice): A dwarf in this land of fantasy? The devil you say!
* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: From the [[{{Disney/Fantasia}} Fantasia 2000]] review:
-->'''Paw:''' You thinking what I'm thinking?\\
'''[[WebVideo/VampireReviews Elisa]]:''' Yeah, but JewWario's already married and Nella's...\\
'''Paw:''' No, where we are!
* ArchEnemy: The Dart Board especially after [[spoiler:Paw cheated so he could review Puss in Boots (The One with Christopher Walken). The Dart Board retaliated by making Paw the host of Brows Held High and vice versa though he does return to his own reality. Which lead to Paw '''MURDERING''' the dart board however the dart board reemerged stronger than ever]].
* {{Backtracking}}: One of Paw's main complaints with the game Total Distortion. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3utQsGyE1U He even sang a song about it.]]
* BerserkButton: His rage towards the FocusGroupEnding to ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors'' was enough to cause [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man-esque]] distortions to appear in the video.
** Songs made only for film. He has made exceptions but he generally doesn't like them.
** ''{{Film/Popeye}}''. Just the film Popeye.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], Angry Joe, and That Chick With The Goggles show up to help him against Dark Paw.
* BlessedAreTheCheesemakers: ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'': "It is kick-started by - now get ready for this - tossing a moldy piece of cheese in it. WHY CHEESE?"
* BookEnds: In his "Top 9 Music Moments In Gaming"; "I'M THE GOD!". It first comes up in Old School Edition, talking about his #9 pick, ''VideoGame/SimCity''. It comes up again during his battle with himself, at the very end of the New School Edition.
* BoredomMontage: The opening to the Music Movies series has Paw trying to conquer his boredom by (among other things) playing ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.
** On the 360, no less. [[TakeThat No wonder he's bored.]]
* BorrowedCatchphrase: He uses the Nostalgia Critic's "OF COURSE!" gag twice. The first (in ''Total Distortion''), is the traditional Raul Julia clip from the ''Film/StreetFighter'', but later is the Critic saying it from ''{{Kickassia}}''.
* CallBack: The appliances the Dr. Dolittle review are still talking, and even passing the salt in Really Rosie.
* TheCameo: Quite a few in his Top 9: Video Game Composers. How about the Critic as a DOG!
* {{Catchphrase}}: Using the word "whimsy" a lot in Music Movies.
** "It's time for Best/Worst! Which song (insert reference to a song from the movie), and which song (insert another reference to another song from the movie)?"
** "Winning hearts and minds, the [[KingsQuestV King Swazey]] way."
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: During the review of PeterPan, [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], ObscurusLupa, {{Phelous}}, the Makeover Fairy, SadPanda, [[InternetPersonalityVangelus Vangelus]], Creator/ApolloZHack, PushingUpRoses, Sean Fausz, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick and WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows announce their belief in fairies to revive Tinkerbell.

* EnemyWithin: [[spoiler:Dark Paw.]]
* ElevatorFloorAnnouncement: Paw uses it in his LetsPlay of ''King's Quest V'' [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/paw/lppaw/9731-lpkq5p13 here]].
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: "Top 9 Video Game Composers".

** After going into detail how the original ending of ''MyFairLady'' was the best way to wrap up the story, Paw becomes ''enraged'' at the [[UnfortunateImplications movie's ending]].
* GroinAttack: In the ''{{Disney/Fantasia}}'' review, Elisa does this to Paw twice in the opening. With a dart. [[MadeOfIron Yet somehow, Paw does little more than cringe in pain.]]
* HappilyMarried: Married to [[VampireReviews Elisa Hansen]]
* HaveANiceDeath: In his ''King's Quest V'' LetsPlay, he [[LamePunReaction groans at the bad puns in them]], while he praises ''Total Distortion'' for its CrossesTheLineTwice "YOU ARE DEAD" ''musical number''.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Usually averted, though parodied in both installments of ''Hotel Awesome'' when Joe tries to speak to him.
* HeliumSpeech: He tries to emulate [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]]'s shrill by inhaling helium before singing one of her songs.

* HypocriticalHumour: In his King's Quest 6 retrospective, when introducing the villain, the vizier Abdul Alhazred, he says he's evil bringing up the stereotype that all Viziers in fiction are evil, then adds [[BeardOfEvil "Also he's got a goatee!]] EVIL OVERLOAD!! EVIL OVERLOAD!!" though Paw himself has a goatee.
* InherentlyFunnyWords: In his live ''King's Quest 2 AGD'' LetsPlay, he stumbles across a message that simply says "Donk". He then spends the rest of the LP working the word "Donk" into every situation he can manage.
* LaserGuidedKarma: While he praised much of Disney's ''The Lion King'', his vocal dislike of [[spoiler:"Be Prepared" and the non-Elton John version of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" done in-movie]] came back to bite him as he must next do [[spoiler:both Lion King sequels]].
* LetsPlay: He's a big fan of AdventureGames, in particular {{Sierra}} games, in ''particular'' the VideoGame/KingsQuest series. His resume currently includes:

* LittleNo: In his CannibalTheMusical review, during the Brent "Al" Flas segment, BrentalFloss delivers several.
* MacGuffin
** In both parts to his "Top 9 Video Game Songs of All Time", Paw retrieved a literal MacGuffin for every song he remembered: a crystal shaped like a musical symbol appeared with the phrase "[[ItemGet MACGUFFIN GET!]]"
* ManOfAThousandVoices: He gives all characters in his Let's Plays different, often goofy (and sometimes [[VocalDissonance unfitting]]), voices. Such as in his Quest for Glory 2 let's play, he gives Abdulla Doo an over the top stereotypical Arabian Accent, while the hero (Who can only say one word at a time) he makes him sound mentally challenged.
* {{Mondegreen}}: Shares some of [[{{In-universe}} his more memorable ones]], including "I need the ice cream" ("I knew the ice queen") and "Pika Pika Johnny" ("Be Good Johnny") complete with {{P|okemon}}ikachu showing up.
** Paw actually got his name from this trope. Whenever he introduced himself people would hear Paw instead of Paul. The nickname stuck.
* MotorMouth: His ''Truncated'' segments, in which he rapidly summarizes a game in 60 seconds. Sometimes he applies it to his Let's Plays too.
* MythologyGag: On his ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' review, "Where else do you see Santa Claus in bondage?" Cut to The Ultimate Warrior comic. (A scourge on WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall and WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment) "[[{{Squick}} Oh yeah. I forgot about that.]]"
* NegatedMomentOfAwesome: In the video where he goes through his dad's old 45s, he finds one of ArthurBrown's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCU5hTCynkQ Fire]]". Unfortunately, the record is too badly scratched to be playable.
* NiceHat: Both a few of his baseball caps and his fedora.
* OfficialCouple: After marrying Elisa, it was also verbally acknowledged in the show that he's now married.
* OlderThanTheyLook
* PerkyGoth: Dresses as one (complete with overdone eyeshadow and black backdrop) for his ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' review and peppers the review with Edgar Allen Poe quotes.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With PushingUpRoses.
* PrecisionFStrike:
--> '''Graham:''' Now why would she toss aside this beautiful harp?
--> '''Paw:''' [[spoiler:Because she's a cunt!]]
* RunningGag: During his ''King's Quest V'' LP, he would often respond to [[TheScrappy Cedric]]'s claims that something was dangerous by saying some variant of "is it [=pOIsonous=]!?"
** In his ''Hugo 2'' LetsPlay with PushingUpRoses, after accidentally saying "Uncle Great Horace" instead of "Great Uncle Horace" at the start of the game, he proceeds to mix up the words in a different way every time the character is mentioned.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: Quotes this trope in his ''King's Quest V'' LetsPlay after King Graham makes an exploitable statement:
--> '''Graham''': This is a lovely little shop you have here.
--> '''Paw''': Shame if anything were to happen to it!
* ShipTease: With [[WebVideo/VampireReviews Elisa Hansen]] as of ''Film/PhantomOfTheParadise'' review. (Turns out they are married in [[RealitySubtext real life.]])
* SkywardScream: [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder CEEEEEEDRIIIIIIC!]]
* SophisticatedAsHell / LyricalDissonance: The Lyrical Poetry series reads songs such as Music/{{Disturbed}}'s "Down with the Sickness" and Big Sean's "Ass" as heartfelt poems.
** The Pedantic Semantic concludes his analysis of the various Disney princesses thusly: "So, whether Disney were just scrambling to appeal to the modern girl audience or just evolving with the times is up to interpretation. The fact remains that Snow White is a lazy bitch."
* StealthPun: Rather than the obvious "These Boots Are Made for [=Walkin'/Walken=]" pun when reviewing Cannon Films' rendition of ''Literature/PussInBoots'', starring Creator/ChristopherWalken, Paw instead goes for the more subtle, "You gotta assert yourself sometimes [...] otherwise they'll just ''walk all over you''."
* TakeThat: To WebVideo/TheIrateGamer, After not hitting any movies on his dartboard in his ''Film/SinginInTheRain'' review, he says "Random-selection is ruined..."
* TakeThatAudience: Amid rising criticism that ''Music Movies'' no longer runs down the plot--and sometimes not even all of the songs--of movies in a linear fashion, he outright stops himself while explaining the plot of Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog:
-->'''Paw:''' ...Just watch the movie; what am I your ''[leers at the camera]'' [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] [=CliffNotes=]?
** Leading some viewers to reply in the comments: "Yes! Yes you are!"
* TemptingFate: In his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/TheOregonTrail'', Paw says "Whoever dies now deserves to die." Not five seconds later, LordKat keels over.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: He feels that with the {{backstory}} of ''Total Distortion'', involving The Metal Lord invading Earth with [[ThePowerOfRock Guitar]] [[MusicalAssassin Warriors]]. [[spoiler:Then the Lord himself recruits Paw to his army...]][[invoked]]
* TheUnreveal: Elisa is about to tell Paw all of the weird places the dartboard portal has taken her when it suddenly activates and the two are teleported away mid-sentence.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Parodied in the ''Mary Martin's Peter Pan'' review; he initially mistakes Peter Pan for a woman (being played by one and all). When Wendy addresses him as "boy", he panics and proceeds to run out of the house to do "manly things" like fixing a car and drinking beer shirtless to recover his masculinity.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: [[{{In-universe}} Experienced this]] when he realized that Limahl, who sung the theme song to ''Film/TheNeverendingStory'', is actually a man after thinking for 20 years that it was sung by a woman.
** During ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' episode of Music Movies, he's completely stunned to learn that the opening song "Science Fiction[=/=]Double Feature" is sung by ''Rocky Horror'' author Richard O'Brian.
* VitriolicBestBuds: [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] on ''Transmission Awesome''. He teases because he loves.
** The Dart Board also counts though more than not neither side likes each other.
* WithLyrics: The "Backtracking Song", which uses the tune of "Ode to Joy".
--> ''"Backtrack, backtrack, fucking backtrack, got to do this shit again..."''
* WorldOfPun: Comments that a quote from his ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' review is "certainly apro-[[EdgarAllanPoe Poe]]."
