Direwolf20 is a Youtuber who's videos are primarily based on Minecraft mods, which include, but not limited to: Let's Plays, Mod Spotlights, Code Reviews, and sometimes Vanillanote based minigames. He is in touch with many mod developers, the Feed The Beast Teamnote and Minecraft "celebrities". He currently plays along the mod developers Forgecraft servernote as part of his multiplayer series.
Provides examples of:
- Accidental Murder: A variant. Before building the rollercoaster in SMP season 4, Dire plays with the locomotives added to Railcraft. A moment later Soaryn steps on the tracks and gets killed by Dire riding the train. Also, is PVP turned on?
- Bittersweet Ending: Season 5 - Dire is now safe in his Sanctuary dimension, but the Endermen destroyed his base.
- Catch Phrase: "Hello,everyone! Direwolf20 here, bringing you another Minecraft video!" and "Remember, taaaaaake it easy!"
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Happens just about anytime Richard G decides to troll Dire and then show up in front of him.
- Damn You, Muscle Memory!: Often uses the wrong tool that's in his 4th hotbar slot.
- He also keeps forgetting that EnderI/O cables default to extract instead of insert.
- Elaborate Underground Base: Dire and Soaryn build one near the end of SMP season 4. While the base itself isn't all that complicated,the door to get in sure is.
- Epic Fail: While building in the void age in Season 5, he tests the golem pistons with his remote...and accidentally activates the particle accelerators, killing him.
- Friendly Rivalry: Dire and Richard G. Most of the time, when Richard G does something to Dire in any way, shape, or form, Dire always finds a way to get back at him. Always.
- In season 6 of his server play series, it is with RW Tema, iChun, and mr_okushama.
- Game-Breaking Bug: The whole point of Forgecraft is to prevent this and smaller ones.
- Gender-Blender Name: Machine Muse and Rorax are female.
- Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: In Season 5 episode 99, a Hydra shows up and destroys part of his base. Later, a Naga appears and breaks out of his enchanted book room.
- Running Gag: In Season 5 of SMP neptunepink keeps getting slaughtered by a Carmonite Golem in the first episode.
- Every time Soaryn gets access to UU-Matter he spills it all over the place.
- Every single single-player season has a guest come up near the end of the season and turn out to be one with the Endermen and attack Dire.
- Season Finale: Near the end of SMP season 4, Dire and Soaryn build a rollercoaster,with the first part leading into a hellish world, the second leading into a greenland-like area, and the last? A technology room, with (unreleased) Xycraft lasers and magtubes, along with other mod stuff.
- Pretty much every season, either by destroying the server or by being overrun by Endermen in the case of the single player series
- Shout-Out:Direwolf (to Soaryn): Pull the lever Kronk! *Soaryn pulls the lever of the drawbridge Dire is standing on*Direwolf: No, not that lever!
- Side Kick: Soaryn falls into this. Occasionally inverted and Direwolf acts as Soaryn's sidekick.
- Some Kind of Force Field: Dire builds one in SMP season 3.(Mainly to keep Richard G out).
- In his Season 6 server play, after iChun pranks Dire by placing cicadas in his walls and chickens through out his old base, Dire traps mr_okushama and iChun in an instadeath forcefield in a void age.
- Said forcefield is used as Dire and Soaryn's new base and to keep Mr_Okushama, iChun, and RW Tema out of his void age. Anyone who is on the black list is killed within 5 seconds.
- Spell My Name with an "S": So(a)ryn.
- Spiteful Spit: Subverted with Soaryn. If he gets a hold of UU-Matter, there will always be a moment where he spits it all over the place.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: Dire keeps teasing on his videos features about mods that haven't been updated in a long time, like Xycraft and Equivalent Exchange 3
"Taaake it easy!"
