Headscratchers / Chuggaaconroy

  • Why is he oblivious to the fact that the Steve thing is entirely his fault? He acts like a victim, but he could have nipped it at the bud after the first few times instead of going on for the rest of the Pikmin 1 LP. It's like he genuinely doesn't see it.
    • It's Chugga you're talking about. I honestly don't think it's as bad as he makes it out.
    • Oh good grief, are you seriously taking it at face value? He hams everything up, and doesn't always mean what he says. Yeah he's frustrated with the Steve thing, but he hams it up.
    • Oh... Well I've seen him be a ham, but not quite like that. Oh well.
  • So when he's fighting Evice in Pokemon Colosseum, why didn't he throw the Master Ball as soon as Tyranitar was sent out? What was the point in weakening it?
    • He was probably intending to catch it with something weaker. He did call it his ace in the hole, after all.
    • I just assumed he did it a sort of grand finale for the final battle.
  • Hypothetical: Steve vs. Slavinator. Who wins?
    • Someone make a Death Battle out of this.
      • After months of careful analysis, observations of the specimens conclude... Slavinator stares down his miniature foe....and then just steps on him, killing both Steve the Pikmin and Steve the Meme, because A) Chuggaa isn't the only one tired of that meme, and B) Steve is less than an inch tall and Pokemon are much stronger beings than humans.
  • So...would someone care to explain what's so bad about Shari?
    • He thought she looked really creepy, and because her arrival coincided with him having a small time error with his game, he jokingly concluded that she was a zombie formed from him causing a glitch in the fabric of reality. And since then, her choices of wording and dialogue have inadvertently helped this interpretation. He's just kept rolling with it, even though he likely doesn't hate her, because it ruins the immersion that he talks about sometimes if he just plain ignores stuff she says and does. Hence why he also takes animals' wording into consideration with his choices, such as the Running Gag of Croque being a jerk just because his Catch Phrase "as if" makes half the stuff he says seem like sarcasm, or letting Stinky move out just because his randomly generated reason was to "get out of cleaning" when this was technically no different from when Shari said she might move out for different, less comedic reasons.
  • In Superstar Saga, he complained about Popple not doing much before running away. Does he not know that getting rid of Rookie first automatically results in Popple running away? I just found it weird considering he did know that attacking Popple while Rookie is around results in Rookie throwing hammers.
    • He probably does. He just sees the optimal strategy as going for the most powerful threat (aka Rookie).
  • In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword why doesn't Chuggaa just grind for Monster Claws whenever he doesn't have enough for an upgrade? They can be easily obtained by killing Keese until they drop enough for the upgrade in the Waterfall Cave which is right in Skyloft, where the Bazaar is.
    • Never mind, Chuggaa addressed this himself in Episode 22. The reason he doesn't do this is not because he didn't think about it, it's because he's been having the worst luck with Monster Claws. According to him, he once spent 30 minutes grinding without obtaining a single one.
  • Why does Chugga try to hide that his videos aren't live commentary?
    • He doesn't. If you watch his Animal Crossing videos, he explicitly mentions that "fishing while doing live commentary is really hard".....
    • Also I would be really surprised if he had done post commentary for his reaction to the shiny koffing he caught in Pokemon Crystal and the reaction to catching Groudon in Pokemon Emerald
    • His videos are usually live commentary. Post-commentary is done for parts where he should've said something in live that he didn't, when doing it live would be difficult or detrimental, or when skipping past a portion of the game and thus presumably not speaking in live. He might also sometimes do it for some of his informative bits (seeing as they definitely sound like he's reading from a script), or just to redo a bit of commentary if he flubbed his words, but that's standard fare. And he hides it (usually) in these cases because otherwise it would break the flow.
