Audience, wha-? What are you doing at my TV Tropes page, Audience?
Toby Joe Turner, aka Tobuscus, is a Youtube personality known for his comedy, songwriting, and acting abilities. His work includes original songs and comedy shorts, "Literal Trailers" of video games and films, song and commercial parodies, and a comedy clip series called, "Cute Win Fail". He owns a vlog known as "Lazy Vlog", and a gaming channel, Toby Games, also known as "Toby Sucks at Gaming".Despite having his major presence on Youtube, Toby is no stranger to acting, appearing in 2008 in the TV series Stranger Things and the 2010 indie comedy New Low. In 2012, he broke into mainstream TV as the primary live actor in Cartoon Network's production of The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange. In the same year, he also played a role in the indie slasher flick Smiley.To watch his Tobuscus videos go here, for his Lazy Vlog go here and for his gaming channel go here. His website is here.
Angrish: A LOT. Especialy in the earlier videos of him playing Happy Wheels, where half of his speech was just him shouting "GOD DANGIT!" at various volumes and a "FPFFFF" sound in place of where curse words should go.
Hopefully those guards have good armor / No they don't, maybe they do / They don't.
Artifact Title: As of now, "Evil Puppet Show Ft. Mini-Minotaur and Creeper" and "Edited Lazy Vlog" have been edited, but Word of God states that he sits down when he edits, so he is still being lazy. Additionally, it is practice for sketches.
In the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Literal Trailer, the assassin is easily distracted by a feather - when several guards are pointing their spears at him during an assassination.
In his gaming episodes, he has an incredible ability to get distracted and lose track of what he's supposed to be doing. In sandbox games like Minecraft, this is fine, but it tends to frustrate (or alternatively, amuse) viewers of the more story-driven games to no end, especially when he doesn't pay attention to mission objectives.
Awesomeness Is a Force: In the Literal trailer for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, this is apparently how Ezio kills a guard. note The guard in question actually gets shot by an arrow, but it is barely visible. besides, the notion of Ezio just killing a man through being awesome in his proximity is so much cooler.
Guard says, "Stop!" / Just kill him with your awesome.
Badass Baritone: During his playthrough of Duke Nukem Forever, Toby imitates Duke's deep voice with uncanny precision. Of course, Toby himself is anything but a badass, but his mimicry of one is hilarious. He can be seen practicing the Duke Nukem voice in earlier vlogs, long before the game was released.
Better to Die than Be Killed: During his Amnesia playthrough, he jumps off a cliff rather than die at the hands of a monster, and invokes this as his justification. He also invokes this during his playthrough of Limbo, in which he drowns himself to avoid the spikes he is floating towards.
Big Eater: Toby mentions being this in his Let's Play of Tiny Thief. Apparently, he will, on occasion, order 2 large pizzas and eat them both by himself. He mentions his mother taking him to McDonald's where he would eat 2 Big Macs, along with chicken nuggets.
Big "NO!": A frequent event in his Let's Play videos, most often when a game crashes or an ally dies.
Blatant Lies: Much of what he claims in his Lazy Vlogs is either obviously untrue or questionable. In this vlog, he goes meta by lying about his lying "tell".
Comedic Sociopathy: In "Safety Torch", Toby invades an innocent kid's house, wakes him up in the middle of the night, scares him to death by telling him monsters are out to get him, offers him torches to keep the monsters away, gives him water to put out the resulting fires, and finally charges him $500 for those "services". And in case there was any doubt as to whether this is deliberate extortion or not, the Frankenstinian monster he brings with him says "Sup Toby" in an easy-to-miss speech bubble.
Timmy: I don't have 500 bucks! Toby: Oh, that's fine! I'll bill your parents.
Cowboy Be Bop At His Computer: invoked An interesting subversion in the animated music video for "I Can Swing My Sword" — the Minecraft recipe for a diamond sword is one stick and two diamonds, but Toby's version has three. Many people pointed out the error, but it's intentional, as the patent he claims to have in the song is specifically for a three-diamond version, making it unique.
Cute Kitten: The "Cute" clips of "Cute Win Fail" have a high representation of this trope.
In the first episode of Tobuscus Animated Adventures, Toby is so busy ogling a chick that he fails to notice (or care) that she's a zombie. Hilarity Ensues.
Does This Remind You of Anything?: Toby's commentary is very easy to take in the wrong context if you keep your eyes closed on certain occasions. This is almost always noticed by the commenters rather than Toby realizing it during the video. Specific examples:
His "Literal Trailers" series, where he adds Literal-Minded lyrics to movie and video game trailers.
In his Lazy Vlogs, Toby often interprets fan comments literally, such as when a fan says that they would "die" if he read their letter on the vlog and he then apologies profusely for murdering them.
Mad Libs Catch Phrase/Couch Gag: The intro to every episode of Cute Win Fail has a different running gag per episode. The formula usually goes like this:
How's it going? I'm Toby Turner. [random phrase that starts off the running gag] and this is "Cute Win Fail", the show where videos from three different [items relevant to the running gag] compete to become the most EPIC. [Starts listing the three entries from the previous episode] Your votes have all been [action relevant to the running gag] and the most epic video ever of last week was... [insert winning entry here] Sorry, other two clips. [joke about the loser videos' punishment, also relevant to the running gag] It's time for three new videos to enter the competition for epicosity. Let's watch!
Metaphorgotten: He talks so much and so fast that he often loses track not only of where he was going but where he started.
"If you took Gonzo and put him in an arena with a bunch of other animators and gave them all, like, medieval weapons and put like a lion in there, the lion would probably kill them all. But Gonzo is a good animator." 
No Sense of Direction: He gets lost constantly in Minecraft and Skyrim, despite having a minimap mod for the former and a compass with quest markers in the latter, mainly because he ignores them most of the time.
Played for Laughs, especially in his vlogs, as he is capable of imitating a remarkably wide range of accents and voices but not, seemingly, of staying in them for more than a few sentences.
In his Assassin's Creed: Revelations playthrough, he attempts to imitate Ezio's Italian accent, with mixed success — at several points he slips into Russian and Transylvanian accents, notices, and gets himself hopelessly confused.
Toby continually refers to elements of his videos that only exist after they've been uploaded to Youtube, such as the annotations. He also pretends that the audience is wherever the camera is and/or is the camera. In one video, he notices that he's being zoomed out to show the Youtube video frame.
In Trapped in a Vlog, Toby introduces the audience to his studio. In reality, he makes his filming background as white as possible and then plays with white balance to complete the effect (this is so he doesn't have to bother with a greenscreen). In that video, however, he pretends to be hiding a vast collection of white or near-white objects in the background, and invites the audience to click on each one in order to see a sub-video explaining what it is.
Precious Puppies: Cute Win Fail also has a large volume of cute puppy clips. When babies and puppies get involved, it becomes a kind of Cuteness Event Horizon.
Product Placement: In an interview, Toby said that one of his objectives in creating the Tobuscus vlogs is to attract advertisers. Much of his work is, in fact, sponsored. He further parodies this by yelling "Sponsor!" whenever any brand name appears in his videos, whether it's actually sponsoring him or not, and in some cases even if it's his own product.
He created the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Literal Trailer, which was immensely popular. UbiSoft loved the trailer so much that they personally hired Toby and his crew to do a preview and demo their games at E3 2011, where Toby met the developer team for Assassin's Creed: Revelations and learned that they were major Tobuscus fans. Since then, he's been invited to play these trailers at conventions as a featured performer and has written a Literal Trailer for a Revelations TV commercial.
His fame has also landed him a voice acting gig for an unspecified game and appearances in several TV commercials (eg. in the APB Reloaded trailer with Seananners), plus a spot on E! News for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launch at GameStop.
Rage Quit: While playing the Justine expansion pack of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Justine quits to the desktop every time the player dies, something Toby found out the hard way. After the third try ended in failure, he gave up, telling the Audience, "You play it!"
Being unable to use tools or do anything stereotypically manly.
Peeing uncontrollably whenever he gets excited or scared.
The hilarious abuse heaped on Steven, which wouldn't be as funny if Steven actually existed.
"Reading books" as an Unusual Euphemism for drinking alcohol — as in, he read a lot of books last night and now his head hurts.
Constantly improvising parody songs during his gaming sessions. Naturally, these often become some of the favorite highlights among fans.
His original Minecraft world is corrupted in such a way that it crashes frequently in a certain spot. Toby periodically revisits this world out of nostalgia and it always, always crashes, leaving him screaming in fury.
Various Let's Play videos of different games are titled "I'M DEAD". More than once in the same series, sometimes.
Often in Cute Win Fail, whenever a person or animal falls over in a flailing manner, Toby follows it up with a shout of "HADOUKEN!".
Whenever he gets fan mail in which a person says that they "will die" if he reads it on one of his vlogs, he takes them literally.
In his newer Happy Wheels videos, he'll say "LAST TIME" and show a quick recap of the last episode, and then say "THIS TIME" and show the new episode.
Toby takes on a stereotypically condescending attitude in character during his SkyrimLet's Play.
Toby's character in Tobuscus vs. Olga Kay utters the immortal line, "Oh good, you're in the kitchen. I would love a sandwich." She then beats him down and utters the Bond One-Liner, "Make your own sandwich."
Then dip the mashed potato covered chicken nugget biscuit in the barbecue sauce. MMMMMMM YUM YUM GIMME AH!
He also loves Thai food, and has had to pause Let's Plays on more than one occasion due to the arrival of the delivery guy.
Translation Convention: Roman from the Roman & Regina videos claims he can't even speak English... in English.
Unusual Euphemism: "God diggety doodle", "What the doodle", "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD", and his signature "God dangit!". Probably his strangest is "Jesus R Kelly Christ!"
"Grandbuscus": Steven! If you fade me out I swear to doodle I'll pee on your house!
Unreliable Narrator: If you believed everything he says in his Lazy Vlogs, you'd be... well, very confused. This does, however, leave us with the problem of figuring out exactly which of those things are true and which are not.
Verbal Tic: He affects a lisp when talking about things like flowers, birds, or airplanes.
You Make Me Sic: When he narrates text in games with spelling errors (such as Happy Wheels where this happens frequently due to the user-created content), he intentionally reads the spelling error phonetically.
