"Oh god, there's gonna be things, isn't there?"Mangaminx
— Mangaminx on just about every horror game.
is a female Lets Player
. She is known for playing games in the Survival Horror
genre, though she does take a step into other genres as well. Her quick wit commentaries and frantic reactions to the games she plays have garnered quite a large Youtube fanbase. Recently moved to TheRPGMinx
, but all her previous videos are still accessible from her old account (though she seems to
have deleted a large number of her older series for some reason, sadly).
Games Mangaminx has Let's Played (not including one-shots) including:
Her Let's Plays and other videos provide examples of:
- Achievements in Ignorance: Apparently spent some time manually pushing five sacrifices to an alter in her Goat Simulator video, having obviously never bothered to check the controls for the button that would have allowed her to simply pick up objects and people.
- A Mother To Her Characters: Often is this way with the main characters in the games she Lps.
- Angrish: During monster chase sequences/other generally tense situations, her speech typically dissolves into unintelligible blathering.
- Also, her voice goes very high and squeaky and she starts going "La la la la la la la" repeatedly.
- Badass Normal: Many of the characters she plays.
- Berserk Button: Some of her most colorful, angry rants have been in relation to extremely frustrating, poorly-designed puzzles that involve such precise control that even when one knows how to do them they fail constantly.note
- Cloud Cuckoolander: "Hello, visible wind, how are you?"
- Cluster F-Bomb: The swearing in her videos rarely stops, to hilarious effect.
- Comedic Sociopathy: Rather common in her LP's.
- Cold Open: Her Un Exit video has one where it shows the creepy, silent, intro to the game before she says anything.
- Cowardly Lion: Spends most of her videos terrified, but doesn't back down.
- Cute But Psycho: Her intro animation invokes this.
- Deadpan Snarker: She delivers many insanely quotable lines during her LP's.
- The Determinator: She doesn't give up no matter how difficult the game/puzzles are. Ie The steam puzzle in Penumbra... The frustration parts in Ju-on... Bloodlines...
- Fan Community Nicknames: "Minxlings", as of her Silent Hill 3 Let's Play.
- Fan Nickname: She named the Servant Grunt and Brute in Amnesia "Mr. Face" and "Mr. Tall" respectively. The names caught on quite well, and are now used by people who haven't even seen her videos to name the Amnesia monsters.
- Gamer Chick: One of the most popular female LP'ers on Youtube.
- Genre Savvy: She is well aware of tricks many horror games try to pull, and is often a step ahead. Usually.
- She also has gotten very used to how the monsters' patterns work in Amnesia: The Dark Descent, though some mods still surprise her.
- In Prop Hunt, she is very clever; once, she hid as a mouse and trolled someone for ages. Cue insane laughter from Minx.
- Genre Blind: Despite her usually canny perception of the tricks a game will play, she has her moments. For example, in the 'Tenebris Lake' mod for Amnesia she was locked in a room with increasingly alarming music playing, yet didn't bother to hide in the nearby closet before the monster broke in (a common occurence in the game).
- Incredibly Lame Pun: Occasionally.
"How's that for an innuendo. In-your-endo, shut up
- Laughing Scared: Tends to deal with tension and fear using humor. It's obvious the atmosphere is getting to her when she starts giggling like crazy.
- Lovable Traitor: While of course she's not actually more likely to be the traitor/murderer/mafiosa than any other player, Minx revels in (and seems to actively cultivate) her reputation as a duplicitous backstabber in Trouble In Terrorist Town and other games of treachery.
- Multiple Endings: She has shown slight disdain for these and has stated multiple times that she refuses to replay a game that has multiple endings even if she doesn't get the "canon" one.
- Sickeningly Sweethearts: When Minx and Krism are doing a playthrough together, expect to hear plenty of cooing and affection between them.
- Miss Swears-a-lot: Enjoys using the word fuck nearly every sentence, especially when frustrated. This has arguably become more mild in recent videos.
- Talking To Herself: Whether hiding from a monster or solving a boring puzzle, she sometimes talks to inanimate objects to alleviate tension.
- You Gotta Have Purple Hair: One of her thumbnail avatars has long, purple hair.
