'''Arin Hanson''' (b. January 6, 1987), better known by his internet alias Egoraptor, is an accomplished and popular [[WebAnimation web animator]], voice actor, rapper, and Internet personality.

His best known animated work is the ''WebAnimation/AwesomeSeries'', while he also has a huge following for co-hosting ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' as Grump alongside Not-So-Grump aka Danny Sexbang of Music/NinjaSexParty. (Not-So-Grump was formerly [[WebVideo/JonTron Jon Jafari]] until he left to focus on his own work.) Arin and NSP have collaborated to form the musical act Music/{{Starbomb}}.

In 2013, Arin got married to Suzy Berhow, who works on sub-series of ''Grumps'' including being a recurring guest on ''WebVideo/SteamTrain'', co-hosting ''WebVideo/TableFlip'', and playing with Arin in ''Date Grumps'', a special Valentine's Day series.

!!Tropes Egoraptor displays:
* ArtEvolution: His work has gotten noticeably more refined in the years he has been animating.
** He views his time working at MTV negatively for, presumably, a variety of reasons. But the main reason or at least, the only one he's willing to discuss, is because they never let him grow as an artist. MTV wanted his work to look as bad artistically as Awesome the Hedgehog.
* AttractiveBentGender: Arin is famous for being extremely hot in drag. [[http://i.imgur.com/oO1wy5E.jpg Have a look for yourself.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Arin is '''''very''''' in touch with his feminine side.
* BladeLock: With [=OneyNG=] in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SW33qFi28d0 Lightsaber Fightsaber: Episode IV]]. The sabers end up being pushed out of the way, [[HoYay allowing the two to kiss]].
* CloudCuckooLander
* ClusterFBomb[=/=]SirSwearsALot: Lampshaded by Egoraptor himself in ''WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}}''. [[http://gamegrumps.tumblr.com/post/78242580091/shiny-zorua-fuck Collected here.]]
-->'''Egoraptor:''' I know you're not a stupid kid, 'cause I say "FUCK" a lot and you're okay with that.
* DerangedAnimation
* HappilyMarried: To Suzy "Mortem3r" Berhow as of October 25, 2013.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With WebVideo/JonTron, and later on with [[{{Music/NinjaSexParty}} Danny]]. Even though Jon now lives in a different state, all three are still very close friends.
** Also with Tomamoto, with whom he co-created Girl-Chan and who has voiced in many of his cartoons.
* ICantDance: Arin has repeatedly stated that he's not good at dancing despite competing in season 3 of the Youtube reality competition show ''Dance Showdown''. [[spoiler:He won the season anyway.]]
* InTheStyleOf: His [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbpuzYtp43Q Console Vs. PC]] video is done in the style of John Krisfaluci's cartoons, specifically ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy''.
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: '''Oh is he ever'''. He was reportedly more interested in feminine culture as a teenager, [[https://twitter.com/egoraptor/status/213447286905253888 has said]] that female characters appeal to him, and makes for a [[StupidSexyFlanders questionably]] [[AttractiveBentGender attractive]] [[http://i.imgur.com/1dSzqQ2.jpg woman]].
* KindheartedCatLover: He has two cats, Mochi (who is the "darlingest... PIECE OF SHIT") , and a second, younger cat named Mimi, who was a kitten around the time ''Game Grumps'' started.
* LargeHam
* ManOfAThousandVoices
* MasochistsMeal: His guest appearance on ''Hot Pepper Gaming''. The thing nearly kills him.
--> "There's one thing I didn't mention, I forgot, ''my mouth is fucking '''burning'''''."
* {{Mondegreen}}: His video "[[VideoGame/StreetFighter Blanka]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL_x1rRg7mM Makes Pound Cake]]", which has a punchline of Ryu saying "I'D LIKE SOME ''POUND'' CAKE!", referencing his pronunciation of "Tatsumaki Senpukyaku".
* OrphanedSeries: The ''WebAnimation/AwesomeSeries'' has become less fun for him to create as he can't think of any jokes.
** In his own words, "'''Nobody''' wants more ''Lemon and Bill''" [[note]]As a joke, commenting on its relative lack of popularity. He still wants to continue the series, in part because [=JonTron=] is an enormous fan of it[[/note]].
* PetPeeveTrope[[invoked]]:
** [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper Intrusive tutorial segments]].
** He also discusses how he hates the {{Railroading}} that the more recent SuperMarioBros games do.
** He ''really'' doesn't like it when games force subtitles on top of voiced audio, claiming to find it disorienting.
* ReadTheFreakingManual: Rails against this trope (as it pertains to video games) in the Megaman ''WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}}''. He's adamant that a game should not require the player to do anything other than play the game, and that manuals and tutorials are bad things. Instead, he points to the opening level of ''VideoGame/MegamanX'' as a shining example of teaching the player through gameplay alone. This attitude carries over into ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'', where he has a noticeable habit of ignoring tutorials of any kind.
* RenaissanceMan: Arin is an accomplished artist, animator, voice actor, writer, entertainer, ''and'' [[Music/{{Starbomb}} rapper]]! Who knows what he'll take on next?
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mo5gGb05LIE Arin's cat, Mochi]], [[WebVideo/GameGrumps the darlingest... piece of shit!]]
* SelfDeprecation: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1rdIWlf8uI Egorapture]]
* SmashCut: [[PlayedForLaughs Used to full comedic effect]].
--> "Gawd these FUCKIN LIP--!"
--> "I WISH I WAS PLAYING ''VIDEO GA-''"
** Almost every transition in the ''WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}}'' series cuts Egoraptor's dialogue off.
--> "Let me level with you for a second. Electrical Engineering? Pretty smart. General Relativity? Pretty fuckin' smart. The Intro Stage In [[VideoGame/MegaManX Mega Ma]]'''FUCKING.''' '''GENIUS.'''"
* SmallNameBigEgo: Defied but parodied. Egoraptor himself joking invoked [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1rdIWlf8uI&feature=related this]] by proclaiming to be [[AGodAmI God]], but in real life he's said many times he's not a person like that, and was open to the idea of hanging out with some fans in an interview.
* StealthPun: Bill is a bullet. [[spoiler: [[SuperMarioBros Bullet Bill.]]]] Also, both Lemon and Bill [[WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}} are ammunition]].
** In a short about a LiteralMinded man, his nametag says "Philip K. Literal". [[spoiler: He's literally Mr. Literal.]]
* TheTeetotaler
