DeliciousCinnamon is a YouTube channel that focuses on Let's Plays with group commentary.It was started up by Robert "Bert" Lindert with his friend David "Dubz" Knapp, with Dezz, Mysh, Juan and Adam as the other members, though now the channel is mainly run by Dubz and Mysh.The channel gained notoriety from a Let's Play of Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal* often called Viet Crystal, a "Blind Idiot" Translation of Pokemon Crystal from Vietnam. DeliciousCinnamon has since then branched out into Let's Plays of other games as well.Their Let's Plays include:
During the 2013 Spring Stream, Juan gives Goompa the voice of Old Rusty. This causes the chat to theorize that he is suffering from PTSD from fighting Mario.
The final boss of Super Amazing Quest just wants to be a dancer, but his dad (the Hero) won't let him.
And he shits out leotard bombs and summons backup dancers as his minions.
Always Night: In Viet Crystal, the time of day changes to night during either Episode 6 or 7. The game never returns to daytime until Episode 9 of Kanto, which is the 59th episode of the entire Let's Play.
During their first livestream of Pokemon Green, they attempted to catch an Abra. Dezz encouraged everyone to press A to help them catch it.
They also do this occasionally in VietCrystal; Bert tells everyone to press Z when they're trying to catch Sudowoodo.
Gone Horribly Wrong during part of their YouTube livestream. When Dubz and Mysh faced of in Kirby's Avalanche, Bert told everyone to press Z for Dubz or A for Mysh. The chat soon became overrun with "ZZAZZAZAZAAZZAZAZAAZAAZZZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZZAZAZAAZZAZAZA ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA", to Bert's horror.
Starting with Crash Bandicoot 2, they have begun adding subtitles to their videos based on fan suggestions.
Beat Them at Their Own Game: Adam during Pokemon Stadium. He manages to best Bert three times at Magikarp's Splash, and even Dezz once at Clefairy Says. The others resort to constantly playing Dig! Dig! Dig! because it's the only game Adam is not guaranteed to win... until Adam decides to use that trick against them by waiting until everyone is too tired to actually try to win.
Big "NO!": Used by Dubz in Viet Crystal when Bert crashes the game by trying to sell Pointup.
Big "OMG!": Often done when something outrageous happens. An example being when Dezz says it after Juan realizes he didn't get 56/57 boxes, but 56/58.
Bilingual Bonus: Subverted during the Bootleg Bonanza. When they play the second Pokemon Gold cartridge, they accidentally come across a screen entirely in Japanese. Mysh attempts to decipher it, but concludes that it is just gibberish.
Bleep Dammit: Bert tried censoring some of his and Dubz's language in Episode 48 of Viet Crystal to help increase his chances of earning a YouTube Partnership. It didn't seem to help much, and most of the fans didn't like it, so Bert scrapped the idea for future episodes.
Breaking the Fourth Wall: During Episode 9 of Crash Bandicoot 2, Dezz says, "I would like you to look at the bottom of the screen and let me remind you who's playing," possibly referring to the death counter that is added in post.
But Thou Must: During the FTL stream, Bert leaves all of the ingame choices to the chat, no matter how much he may disagree.
Butt Monkey: Dubz. He has been ridiculed by his friends so much that DeliciousCinnamon fans tend to worry about him.
He has joked about this by saying he is the poster child for "blame.org"
Mysh tends to fill in this role when Dubz is not available.
Call Back: Bert sometimes does this with Viet Crystal phrases.
In Bootleg Pokemon Green, Tackle was called Go All Out. In Episode 48 of Viet Crystal, when Karen said "GO ALL OUT", Bert and Dubz joked that she was going to Tackle them.
In the very first episode of Viet Crystal, Bert finds "A TV SET", which surprises him because it was actually translated correctly. In Episode 3 of Kanto, Bert finds the exact same text, which Dubz points out.
A gag in Chinese Emerald invokes a call back to Viet Crystal:
Continuity Nod: At the end of Episode 45 of Viet Crystal, Dubz calls their future battles with the Elite Four the "Four Emperor Finale," or the FEF for short. Once they return from a month on hiatus, Dubz announces they are back with the FEF (which he has to reexplain to Bert because he forgot).
In Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 7 Part 1, Dezz comments on a rat enemy that has been "equipped." Bert points out that Dezz said the same thing in an earlier episode, then later edits the video to cut to the footage from said earlier episode.
Corpsing: Dubz and Bert do this quite often in Viet Crystal.
They just did an Old Yeller on Muffy. Took it to a different box and everything.
Dug Too Deep: Inverted during the Terraria PVP match. They dug deep, but it wasn't until they tried digging back UP that they encountered their worst problems.
They kept digging deeper and deeper into the second Pokemon Gold bootleg, and ended up finding the terrible bottom: Racism!
Early-Bird Cameo: In an episode from the first Viet Crystal session, Dubz received a text from Juan who would show up as a guest for later DeliciousCinnamon videos.
Early-Installment Weirdness: The first fourteen episodes of Viet Crystal were all one single 2 1/2-hour-long recording session, cut rather awkwardly into 10-minute segments. It wasn't until Episode 9 of Kanto and the start of the Crash Bandicoot LP that they started making videos by the rule of one video per recording (occasionally splitting a recording into two or more parts in a less awkward fashion).
Somewhat ironic considering some of the Pokemon in Viet Crystal are even naturally named after food, such as Fork* Beedrill, Corn* Venonat, Milk* Miltank, Jelly* Tentacruel and Bread* Sandslash. There is even a character referred to as "Wulnut."
And let's not forget Green, which had Bacon, Tofu, Pepsi, Gouda and Lemon.
And now Chinese Emerald gives us Kurdz and Kraut.
Epic Fail: Bert and friends aren't exactly the most skilled video game players.
During Viet Crystal, Bert and Dubz completely ignore the woman who gives them the HM Fly, then proceed to spend a good portion of the video wondering where they are supposed to get Fly.
During an episode of Crash Bandicoot 2, Dezz ran into some boxes that he tried to break by spinning them. He tries 23 times without success. He ended up just jumping over the boxes.
The lost episodes of both Crash Bandicoot games highlight Mysh's "skills."
Subverted during part of Viet Crystal. During the Elite Four battles, Bert guesses that Aerodactyl is Flying/Ground, when it is actually Flying/Rock. Bert later mentions a comment someone made about it: "Flying AND ground? You guys are retarded." This caused more people to comment that Flying/Ground is a legitimate dual type, citing Gligar as a Pokemon with these types.
During one of the Mario Party 2 streams, Bert plays Coffin Congestion and easily finds the item he wants, but doesn't get it because he can't figure out how to open the coffins.
Evil All Along: Bert turns out to be Dracula at the end of Criswelvania.
Foregone Conclusion: For part of the Raikou and Ho-oh episode of Viet Crystal: Anyone who watched Bert's solo livestreams would know going in that Bert caught a shiny Poliwhirl and would use it to prank Dubz.
Foreshadowing: Before Bert fights Snorlax, Dubz says "His best move is Pointup." Your mileage may vary on whether he knew what would happen or not.
In the same episode, Bert accidentally loads a save state in the Ruins of Alph after the game crashes the first time. After they beat Snorlax, Bert accidentally loads this state again when trying to save.
Happens again in Criswelvania with lines like "I can fly, that means I'm Dracula! I mean..." and "Yeah, I don't like garlic soup anyways."
During a now lost stream, a game of Super Mario Bros 3 ends when Mysh accidentally messes up one of the video cords. The result is a screen with the letters "J.T." The chat offers some suggestions for what they stand for.
During the Bootleg Bonanza, Dezz names their character with the initials of Bert, Mysh, Adam and Dezz, without realizing the result is BMAD.
Once Dubz and Juan join in for the next stream, the name is extended to DJ BMAD.
Gender Bender: During the first Viet Crystal session, Bert caught a female Caterpie and a male Gastly. When he lost the save, he had to catch a male Caterpie and a female Gastly. Since he didn't record himself catching them again, this was interpreted as the two Pokemon having sex changes.
Gender Reveal: In this episode, they learn that Dob Gitar is a woman* Though technically her gender was clear from the beginning and Bert and Dubz just forgot.
Hope Spot: Happens three times in a row during the first battle against Karen. Bert's Gyarados is able to learn a move called "Frog," which they believe might be a very powerful and helpful move* they're right; the move is Hydro Pump. In his haste, Bert accidentally forgets Mad, their only other powerful move. Thankfully, because Mad is Thrash, Gyarados is still able to use the move on the next Pokemon... which turns out to be a Gengar. Luckily, Bert is able to do some damage to Gengar with Frog... before Gengar uses Spite and removes the move's PP.
Hurricane of Puns: During the Paper Mario stream, the gang starts making fun of Dubz, calling him a Casual. This leads the chat to start listing off names of different movies with Dubz and Casual added in.
Caleb (aka Mysh): Yeah, we got me, myself, and I, then Bert and Dubz. David Knapp (aka Dubz): Six people, now. Mysh: That's five. Bert: Glad you passed- Mysh: Oh, oh yeah, that's right, six, because we also have Mysh. Dubz: Yeah, we forgot to include you. Mysh: Oh, and Caleb! Oh and David Knapp- oh, dude, we have so many people!
Played with during Crash Bandicoot 2, when they list all of the names Bert has been called before making a bunch up by combining the different names.
Juan: Bert, like, if you envision this right now, there's like a glass [that represents your advice], and Mysh just spit in the glass and threw it on the ground. Dezz: Actually, Mysh spit in the glass, put it into your butt, and then squeezed your butt together so that it shattered inside of you. Juan: Let's not forget about your pulsating butt.
Also happens when Dubz describes his relationship with Juan's brother:
Dubz: I was like- he had a tick, and he's like, "You can stay." Dezz: "You can take this pocket of blood." Dubz: And then he gets Lyme Disease from me, and I don't know how that happened. Dezz: Where is this metaphor going?
Mind Screw: Early in Viet Crystal, Bert's Totodile learns a move called "Yuja," which turns out to be the move Rage. Later in the game, the same Pokemon is able to learn a move called "Rage* Slash". Bert ends up forgetting Rage to learn Rage.
Mondegreen: In Episode 45 of Viet Crystal, Bert misreads "Now I have the strongest monster" as "Now I am the strongest monster."
In Crash Bandicoot 2, everyone mishears "crystal-less" as "chrysalis."
In Space Funeral, Bert misreads Shopkeep as Shorter.
Myopic Architecture: During Ferazel's Wand, Mysh questions the effectiveness of a large stone gate that is surrounded by sand.
Never My Fault: Just about everyone has blamed the controller at some point.
No Ending: The Mario Party 2 segment of the 2013 Summer Stream ends abruptly with 13 turns left when the cartridge is bumped out of place.
No Indoor Voice: How Dubz views some of the NPCs in Viet Crystal, since the entire game is in ALL CAPS.
"COME AGAIN PLEASE!"
Dubz himself is like this sometimes.
Everyone in DC tends to be like this at times as well.
No Punctuation Is Funnier: During Viet Crystal, they run into a guy who says "I AM HAPPPY, UNCLE." Dubz doesn't see the comma, so he reads it as "I am Happy Uncle."
Not His Sled: In the Minecraft map Criswelvania, the player(s) must go through a Nether portal and take on the final challenge. Instead, Bert and Dubz stop before going into the portal and act out a skit where Bert turns out to be Dracula.
Put on a Bus: Bert, Dezz, Juan and Adam had to leave the channel to due real life complications, leaving it to just Dubz and Mysh.
The Bus Came Back: It has been stated that the others are still willing to come back and do things when they have time. For example, Dezz returned for Pokemon Chinese Emerald, and Bert returned for a livestream.
Pyrrhic Victory: How Bert views his victory against Misty, since Steak ended up dying.
Defied earlier in the LP when Bert refused to use revives during the first Elite Four battle, even if it meant losing the battle.
Bert feels this way about his Mario Party 2 victory because he had to take over for Dezz.
Mysh: We have not heard Ferazel speak in quite a while. Dubz: "Well, I was talking all last episode-" Mysh: Hey hey hey, Ferazel, don't talk! You're underwater! You might get water in your nose! Dubz: "You might get water in your nose. I HAVE A REBREATHER! Except, not really. I'm drowning. Slowly."
Swapped Roles: Bert is normally very skilled at the Crash Bandicoot games, while Mysh couldn't complete one to save his life. However, in the first episode of Crash Bandicoot 3, Bert dies 12 times trying to get a box gem, while Mysh completes a different level and gets the box gem without dying.
Theme Naming: Most likely unintentional, but almost all DeliciousCinnamon guests have a name (or nickname) consisting of exactly four letters: Bert, Dubz, Dezz, Mysh, Juan, Adam, Josh* who help film DeliciousMealTime, Kipp, Jack, Will.
Wrong Genre Savvy: Bert opts not to go to the top of the lighthouse in Viet Crystal because he knows he needs the medicine before he can do anything at the top. What he doesn't realize until later is that he has to go to the top of the lighthouse in order to trigger the option to buy the medicine.
Wrong Name Outburst: A non-emotional/sexual variant. At the beginning of the Crash Bandicoot 2 Lost Episode, Dezz accidentally includes Dubz instead of Juan in the list of people commentating over the episode. Juan does not take this well.
