"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 smooth voice made for YouTube, an aversion for showing his face, 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".
Cry and Friends Stream: Truth, the Eye, and the Beholder* A Dungeons & Dragons campaign hosted by Snake on the "Late Night with Cry and Russ" stream that is episodically uploaded to his YouTube channel. Currently on hiatus.
"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 Up to Eleven if he is sleep deprived while recording.
Cozy Voice for Catastrophes: 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.
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. One of the most notable examples of this is his video for the game "Which?"
Evil Laugh: 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, "Turn off that candle; we're gonna start a house fire..."
The Faceless: 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.
Freeze-Frame Bonus: Cry will often put in text in his vids, either to explain time skips or to put in hilarious commentary.
Friend to All Children: 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.
Genre Savvy: In Cry Plays: Gravity Bone, Cry correctly predicts that the redheaded woman in Mission 2 is evil, or at least suspicious, some time before she murders Abel.
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
Socially-Awkward Hero: 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.
Spell My Name with an "S": 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).
Is perfectly okay with sicking flesh-eating rats on the guards in his Dishonored playthrough.
In his playthrough of The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 4, he willingly left Sarah behind to be devoured by walkers. However, this is more or less an aversion, since he didn't realise that he was able to save her.
