Fan Nickname: raocow
Hooray! Vanilla plants. That's not even ever been their name ever.
— Raocow

Raocow, being the eccentric LPer he is, has come up with plenty of wacky names for enemies in his videos. Here's a set of the more memorable ones:
  • From Super Mario World, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Bros. X, or ROM hacks thereof:
    • Charging Chuck plays football, but we all know his name is really Charlie.

    • He calls these enemies Cheetahmen Hammer Bros for their laughable walking animation.
    • The brown Munchers from Super Mario Bros. 3 are "Potatoes", while the four-legged Koopa Troopas from the same game are "Chickens".
    • "Dino-Rhino-Lino-Bino" (in any order, plus whatever else rhymes with "Dino" he feels like adding) for Dino-Rhinos.

  • From Touhou:
    • Bob, the piranha plant fuzzies from Super Marisa World.
    • Rumia became "Bootleg Yoshi".
    • "Gremlins" for the Shanghai dolls.

    • He has also started to call Flandre, Flanders.
    • Unsurprisingly, "Purple" for Yukari.
  • Bartholomew the bird in An Untitled Story

    • "Satan" for Maszlyg (the industry-styled boss), "Wizard" for the gear-shooting Yinimros, and "Kettle" for the Hoagalls.
    • He calls recently-reencountered Burst Kryjil "The Emperor", probably in reference to how he put arcana names in his Copy Kitty video titles. Even though in the video where he first fought Burst Kryjil, the Hanged Man was in the title rather than the Emperor.

      • The ice wizards, whose shots obey the current gravity, are similarly called "Canadian Wizards."
  • You know those giant hopping enemies that are present in every single 8-bit Mega Man (Classic) game? Well Raocow has a name for those guys ... "Hoppy Hopper Man".
  • In Super Pika Land Ultra, dragon coins have been replaced with Pokéballs. Naturally, he calls them Dragonballs.
    • He calls the rising fire pillars Lickitung.
  • Intra-level shortcuts that are accessed by entering an invisible door or pipe are called "Luna shortcuts", after the Luna Tower level from ASMBXT that used them extensively.

  • On the other end of the scale, raocow's fans have several affectionate nicknames for him, too, such as 'cowrao', 'the Cow of Rao' and 'Mr. the Cow'.
