->''"Hey guys and welcome to Cry plays [Insert game name here]."''
-->-- '''Cry''', aka ''Cryaotic'' introducing himself at the start of a video.

Cry (otherwise known as Cryaotic, the name of his Youtube channel, or Chaotic Monki, the aforementioned channel's previous name) is one of the more well-known LP'ers. With a [[CozyVoiceForCatastrophes smooth voice]] made for YouTube, an aversion for showing his face, [[MemeticMutation a beautiful laughter]] and a penchant for reacting wonderfully when scared, Cry makes his niche playing mostly horror games such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Cry of Fear, amongst others. From mainstream games to the independent titles, if it scares, Cry will probably play it. Cry's also known for being a good friend of fellow horror LP'er PewDiePie, as well as running his own late-night stream every Saturday night with his friends called "Late Night with Cry and Russ".

[[/folder]]
----
!!Cry's videos have examples of the following tropes:
* BerserkButton:
** Harming animals, especially dogs and cats since he is an owner of both.
** He also expresses displeasure at things like racism and gender roles (see Bioshock Infinite and The Cat Lady).
** Cry is definitely not a fan of clipping textures.
* BigBrotherInstinct:
** Tends to get very emotionally attached to characters he protects in-game (for example, Ellie from VideoGame/TheLastOfUs and Elizabeth from VideoGame/BioshockInfinite). Harm to these characters cause him to get [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge very, very angry]].
** He has this for Blue and Orange in VideoGame/Brothers A Tale of Two Sons.
* BiTheWay: As casually mentioned [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApQ_dOnxNxI here]], Cry is pansexual.
-->"I'm more of the kind of guy that goes for the personality; I don't give a goddamn what features they've got going."
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Cry is known to strike up "conversations" at random with inanimate objects, and go off on tangents about subjects completely unrelated to the narrative. Taken UpToEleven if he is sleep deprived while recording.
* CozyVoiceForCatastrophes: Cry has a very soft voice that contrasts nicely with the sort of games he plays. Since he never shows his face, it's one of his most recognizable traits.
* CurseCutShort: During his playthrough of VisualNovel/CorpseParty, when he [[spoiler: doesn't escape Heavenly Host in time and gets a bad ending]]:
--> '''Yuki''': [[spoiler: Welcome to Heavenly Host Elementary school... *giggle* *cackle*]]\\
* {{Beat}}*\\
'''Cry''': Son of a BI--\\
* Cut to a retry*
* CuteAndPsycho: Hitting his BerserkButton or triggering his PapaWolf mode can result in this.
* CutenessProximity: Over the Sparrows in {{Okami}}, especially Chun.
** Also over Riki in XenobladeChronicles, to the point where equipping Riki with cute armor leads to an emotional rant questioning why such a good game isn't more popular.
* DeepImmersionGaming: Cry has a tendency to become extremely emotionally involved in the games he plays, and he'll often make up his own backstories to add onto each game. Examples include:
** One of the most notable examples of this is his video for the game "Which?" He can become pissed off whenever something outside of the game he currently plays (i.e. his cat)[[BerserkButton breaks his immersion]].
** Present in his gameplay of the VideoGame/TheLastOfUs, when he goes on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge to [[spoiler: save Ellie]] at the end of the game. He gets very serious and his voice gets growly.
* DisappearedDad / ParentalAbandonment: It's mentioned a couple of times that Cry's dad left when he was a baby.
* EvilLaugh: He can do a very good one, and has demonstrated on several occasions. It's really bone-chilling.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In ''The Mirror Lied'', he at one point says, [[spoiler: "Turn off that candle; we're gonna start a house fire..."]]
* TheFaceless: Cry has never shown his face on camera before, with a cartoon character referred to as the "Sup Dude" representing him in his ''The Numbers'' videos. This is kind of a sore point for him. People tend to bug him to use a face-cam despite him making it clear a number of times that he ''really doesn't want to''.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Cry will often put in text in his vids, either to explain time skips or to put in hilarious commentary.
* FriendToAllChildren: He likes child characters very much and will often go to great lengths to protect them or seek vengeance against anyone who does harm to them.
* GenreSavvy: In ''Cry Plays: Gravity Bone'', Cry correctly predicts [[spoiler:that the redheaded woman in Mission 2 is [[EvilRedhead evil]], or at least suspicious, some time before she murders Abel.]]
* HiddenDepths: He's got a talent for voice acting, which was apparent in his readings of {{Creepypasta}}, but became much more noticeable in VisualNovel/CorpseParty, ''especially'' with his voice for [[LaughingMad Kizami]].
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Said in a humorous way in the second episode for VideoGame/RememberMe
-->"That Tommy better have some really delicious drinks. *beat* I need some milk."
* KnifeNut: When he goes on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge in Videogame/BeyondTwoSouls at one point he says "Knives, my favorite," and begins to laugh when he hits one of the bullies.
* NiceGuy
* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: While Cry's cat doesn't ''work'' persay, it does interrupt his recordings at times, distracting Cry from narrating.
--> "There is a cat on my lap."
* OhCrap: Is very fond of this reaction, often accompanied by a PrecisionFStrike.
** This is his reaction during his Videogame/TheWalkingDead playthrough when he realized that the guy Clementine and the rest of the group were staying with [[spoiler: was the boyfriend of Matthew, the man they accidentally killed on the bridge]].
* PapaWolf:
** Is ''very'' protective of [[MoralityPet Clementine]] in his VideoGame/{{The Walking Dead}} videos.
--> "You know, if Clementine hurt herself on that glass...[[DisproportionateRetribution I'd cut you.]]"
** Also becomes fond of Ellie from VideoGame/TheLastOfUs and Elizabeth from VideoGame/BioshockInfinite. Cry does ''not'' take it well when they are threatened.
** Also present with Jodie from VideoGame/BeyondTwoSouls. Especially underlined by the very fun possibilities controlling Aiden gives you. The birthday party and bar scenes are particularly jarring examples.
** Recently Cry released a [[http://youtu.be/IvvO-ndDLVE music video named "Limelight"]] as a collaboration with another YouTuber all about his PapaWolf tendencies.
** While playing The Walking Dead Season 2 episode 4 he was forced to make a difficult decision. Needless to say, the outcome had a very big impact on him and he continually reassured himself that his actions were justified and was notably saddened through the second part of the video. He was also distraught and crying twice in season 2 episode 5
* PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel: Notably averted, Cry makes a big deal of not doing this. He even parodies it occasionally. The fact that he has nearly 2 million subscribers regardless is quite telling.
* {{Pluralses}}: Used intentionally to quirky effect.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The [[AuthorAvatar Sup]] [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8l4jcZrqp1qbhy43o1_500.jpg Guys]].
* RunningGag:
** Any time an ellipsis appears onscreen, it will always be pronounced out-loud as "dots".
** In earlier playthroughs, Cry would play the Trololo Song when he needed to speed up any gameplay where he's not getting anything done (ex. a long sequence in Limbo in which he could not figure out a puzzle).
** Specific to the ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' playthrough: Whenever a character mentions Rachel (the girl shown on the missing posters around the school) and he responds with confusion, a clip of Cry reading out her name just forty seconds earlier plays.
* SelfDeprecatingHumor: Happens in his Let's Play of Nightmare House 2. He spends a great deal of time looking for a key, but continuously walks past it. Whit text was edited in and points to the key each time he passes it. Finally, the video actually pauses and Editing Cry can be heard screaming "It's right there!"
** He has similarly lampshaded his own mistakes in several other series as well.
* SirSwearsALot
* SociallyAwkwardHero: Despite making thousands of videos for the public he refuses to reveal his identity because he is uncomfortable around social situations and wants to protect his family from obsessive fans.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Cry answers to Chaotic Monki, Cryaotic, Cry, and Cry-Cry among other variations, but his preferred handle is Cryaotic, with Cry for short.[[note]]In one of the livestreams, he explained that Chaotic Monki was a handle he created but never liked, so he copied another user to create the handle Cryosine, which earned him the nickname "Cry." Never entirely comfortable with mimicking another user, he later fused the two to create something uniquely his own (Cryaotic).[[/note]]
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Invoked in his VideoGame/BioshockInfinite videos, where he gets to have fun with the RPG and Volley Launcher.
* UnsoundEffect: Many. In VisualNovel/CorpseParty, he often reads out sound effects as they're written, such as "sob," sniffle," or the above mentioned "dots."
* VideoGameCaringPotential: Given a choice, Cry is more likely to take the "good" path with his decisions. Most noticeable in ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead''.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential:
** He seems to be enjoying butchering people in Lucius a little too much...
** Indulges in some [[EvilLaugh maniacal laughter]] when setting enemies on fire in ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite''.
** Is perfectly okay with sicking flesh-eating rats on the guards in his ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' playthrough.
** In his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' Season 2 Episode 4, he [[spoiler:willingly left Sarah behind to be devoured by walkers. While at the time he didn't realise he was able to save her, he defended his decision in the comments of the video.]]
