''The people are real! The salt wounds are real! The results are final.''

''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/MarioPartyTV Mario Party TV]]'' is a channel dedicated to group playthroughs of the ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' series. Extremely ''salty'' runthroughs, at that.

The core four players are:
* '''Mr. Doom''': The [[invoked]] DesignatedVillain and [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Evil Player]]. [[LuckyBastard Extremely lucky]]. As the main 'bad guy' of the series, he plays on most maps. Mainly plays Boo, with Wario as his backup character and Shy Guy in 9.
* '''Holms''': One of the saltiest players. Luck is perfectly 'legit' for him and '[[ClusterFBomb bullshit]]' for anyone else. Originally used Mario, but switched to Birdo and Peach for their character-exclusive items.
* '''Steeler''': Plays Toadette and Donkey Kong, who apparently have an OddFriendship on the side. Undisputed master of the Red Star. Even in the games without it. Also plays Toad in 5 and Koopa in 9.
* '''Clel''': Mainly plays as Yoshi, along with Dry Bones when he's available and Kamek in 9. Chance Time is his favorite show.

Other frequently seen players are:
* '''The Reverend Inferno''': Represents Waluigi in his never-ending quest to help the Polio Fund.
* '''Ky''': Known for playing 'Big Booty' Daisy. Has admitted multiple times that he does not play to win, but to {{troll}} the other players.
* '''Degyn''': Usually plays as Birdo or Koopa Kid. Recently [[PutOnABus moved away from the rest of the MPTV crew]].
* '''Depster''': Exclusively plays Yoshi. Known for forming [[EvilDuo a particularly devastating tag team]] with Mr. Doom. Has also [[PutOnABus moved away from the rest]]. [[EnsembleDarkhorse Surprisingly good]] despite his infrequent appearances.

In addition to taking map requests, the players have their own Let's Play projects of other games which are linked through to the main channel. They've also begun a project to LP Every Mario Party Board, playing one map on each of the main nine games and adding up all the stars and coins from each playthrough. They are currently in the fifth season.

Not all of the episodes are on the main channel; a playlist containing every video prior to the ''LP Every Mario Party'' series [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9EC8CEEF89301963 here]].

------
This Let's Play group has provided examples of:

* ActuallyADoombot: After Bowser loses a minigame at ''6'''s E Gadd's Garage, upon returning to the main map, he gloats about how he's going to punish the losers, then acts shocked that nobody lost. The guys joke that they must have fought a 'Bowser bot' instead.
* AffablyEvil: Mr. Doom is generally calm and polite during the boards, rarely losing his temper.
* AssShove: Ky threatens this during the run on Bowser's Gnarly Party prior to Let's Play Every Mario Party, specifically by shoving his foot up someone's ass.
* TheBadGuyWins: Mr. Doom wins his share of boards.
* BigWHAT: Holms' reaction to stumbling across the GameBreakingBug in Crazy Cutters. The clip of this moment became part of Season 3's intro.
* BookEnds: At the start of their first Grand Canal playthrough, Steeler states that Toadette is top tier thanks to her Triple Shroom Orb. At the end, [[spoiler:after discovering he couldn't use other Orbs while it was in effect, he claims she's switched to bottom tier]].
* ButtMonkey: You'd think that Clel would be this, since he loses the most, but his calm demeanor dulls the trope a little. Steeler and Holms take turns at this instead.
* CainAndAbel: Turns out Mr. Doom and Holms are brothers.
* CardCarryingVillain: Mr. 'Freaking Stinking Cheating' Doom doesn't particularly ''mind'' being seen as the [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Evil Player]], and uses this as an excuse whenever the others get salty.
* CassandraTruth: The Reverend Inferno at Snowflake Lake.
* TheCameo: Parodied: Mr. Doom's character of choice is Boo whenever the ghost is available. On boards where Doom isn't even playing, this has led to jokes about him appearing as the thieving Boo the players can hire.
* CharacterPortrait: Mr. Doom, Steeler, Holms and Clel use pictures of themselves to mimic the portraits used in the in-game Ranking charts, which [[GoingThroughTheMotions change appropriately]] in accordance with their status.
* CharacterTiers: [[invoked]] [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in regard to the character-exclusive items found in certain games. Steeler states that Toadette is top-tier thanks to her Triple Shroom Orb, and Clel starts playing Dry Bones instead of Yoshi in those particular games so he can use his Magic Orb. Holms also explicitly states the first time he picks Peach that he's only choosing her for her Flower Orb.
* ClusterFBomb: Goes nicely with salt.
* CrossPlayer: Steeler's signature character is Toadette, while Holms often plays as Peach or Birdo and Ky plays Daisy.
* CurbStompBattle: Common, and a leading source of salt.
* CutenessProximity: Steeler cannot get over how cute Baby Luigi is in Mario Kart 8.
* CuttingTheKnot:
** Their approach to M.P.I.Q. in ''Mario Party 3'' is to mash the buzzer and choose a correct-sounding answer rather than let anyone outbuzz them after reading the question.
** Clel discovers the trick to winning Speedy Graffiti in ''Mario Party 8'': wildly spraying the entire board rather than following the shape.
* DamnYouMuscleMemory: In their Group Nuzlocke Challenge of Fire Red and Leaf Green, Steeler finds himself frequently selecting the item bag whenever he goes to switch Pokemon, blaming this on their positions being switched.
* DoctorJekyllAndMisterJackDaniels: During their second try at Creepy Cavern, Clel of all people was revealed to be this.
* DysfunctionalFamily: Apparently, King Boo is the father of Mr. Doom's Boo. Pink Boo is either his girlfriend, wife or ex-wife, and all the little mini-Boos are their kids. This doesn't stop them from giving him crap; instead, they're constantly after him to pay child support instead of spending all his coins to support his Star habit.
* EnemyMine: About halfway through the playthrough of Bowser's Gnarly Party, the other three players realize that Steeler has all three of the bonus stars, and team up against him in minigames. Steeler...[[FreakOut did not approve]].
* EnsembleCast: The show features a revolving door of players and background commentators.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
** In the very first game, Mr. Doom won the board and Holms, in his anger, RageQuit the game (by shutting the entire game off). Sets the tone, don't it?
** In the trailer for ''LP Every Mario Party'', clips are shown from previous games to establish everyone's character: Steeler yells over a battle mini-game screwing him over, Mr. Doom receives a second star within the span of one turn, Clel rolls too high with a Sluggish Shroom and Holms rage quits over the game screwing him over. The trailer also shows the infamous chance time where [[spoiler: Clel made Steeler swap his huge amount of coins with Mr. Doom]], Bowser stealing one of Steeler's stars, Clel falling off the edge of a bridge in a minigame, Mr. Doom rolling a big enough roll to guarantee his victory and Steeler screaming after losing an 8-player mini game at the last second.
** In the intro used for most games of the second season of ''LP Every Mario Party'', Steeler protests landing on a Bowser space, Clel accidentally goes the wrong way, Mr. Doom sees what game's coming up and asks Holms not to rage... and Holms immediately goes off.
** In the third season intro, Clel accidentally screws himself over in Chance Time, Holms freaks out about Crazy Cutters again, Steeler goes into a shrieking BigNO after losing two stars in Chance Time, and Mr. Doom calmly commenting "Hey, I can win this now" after yet another lucky incident.
** Season four's intro featured Mr. Doom rolling small numbers (which he's prone to do), Bowser Jr. throwing his orb right on the spot Clel landed on, Holms raging over ''winning'' a game, and Steeler raging after he loses a game just inches from being able to win it.
** Season five's intro features Mr. Doom winning the three star windmill at Windmillville (and therefore the game) at literally the last turn (and Steeler flipping his shit over it), Holms raging over moving a star when he was two spaces away from it (and breaking stuff), Clel being hit by a Bullet Bill during a minigame, and Steeler losing at Chance Time yet again.
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: According to Steeler, the best thing about ''5'' is the Pushy Penguins mini-game.
* FiveSecondForeshadowing: Having started recording before determining who gets what starter in their Group Nuzlocke of Fire Red/Leaf Green, Steeler comments that the RandomNumberGod will probably determine that Holms ends up with Squirtle when he's the only one not interested in running him. Sure enough...
* GameBreakingBug: The group discovers a glitch within Crazy Cutters. The second you move whenever the glitch occurs, no matter what direction, it causes the game to count that as a really really small circle (somehow), causing you to fail the mini-game with 0 points.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard:
** At Grand Canal, [[spoiler:Steeler discovering the downside of his beloved Triple Shroom]].
** Holms throwing his controller around has come back to haunt him during the second season of ''LP Every Mario Party'', as it's started malfunctioning.
** Also during the second season of ''LP Every Mario Party'', Captain Holms asks Bowser for lots of presents, putting lots of Bowser Spaces on the map. [[YankTheDogsChain This bites him later on]].
* {{Intermission}}: In several videos, brief intermissions are used to avoid risking desync or other video corruptions.
* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: A RunningGag throughout their first playthrough of ''Mario Party 9'' is agreeing that they'll finish this run, set the game aside, and act as if it doesn't exist.
* LookWhatICanDoNow: After a few months of video upload hiatus and borrowing ''Mario Party 4'', Clel returns to one of his weakest minigames, Revers-A-Bomb, and utterly dominates it.
* LuckyBastard: The real reason Mr. Doom's such a villain. The ''MarioParty'' {{Random Number God}}s must '''REALLY''' like him. As of Season 4 though, they seem to enjoy screwing over his Dice rolls.
* MonochromePast: Sepia tones are used for the {{Flashback}}s shown at the end of certain episodes, reviewing some of the more memorable incidents on that board. The same effect is used when flashing back to events from previous games.
* NWordPrivileges: The Shadow Stars/Ztars/Z-Stars/Dark Stars are nicknamed 'N-word Stars' by the group, and constantly referred to as such. {{Lampshaded}} during Boo's Haunted Bash prior to the LP Every Mario Party project, where they take pains to point out the guy making the most jokes of that nature is black, and again during the first playthrough of ''9''.
** In fact, three of the four main players are black.
* NiceGuy: Clel, due to being pretty laid-back for the most part.
* NiceHat: Mr. Doom's pictures for the Rankings show him wearing a Boo cap.
* NoIndoorVoice: Holms and Steeler both exhibit this.
* NonindicativeName: They don't just play Mario Party - they have a few other Let's Plays like New Super Mario Bros. U and Mario Kart.
* NumberOfTheBeast: The footage adds a StaggeredZoom and ScareChord whenever it appears someone is about to roll three sixes. It was first invoked when a player had six stars and sixty-six coins.
** SixIsNine: This is also done when someone rolls three nines on ''6'''s Snowflake Lake.
* OddFriendship: Clockwork Castle sparked the RunningGag of Toadette and DK being good buddies, due to [[spoiler:how many times she got to catch him]].
* OverlyLongGag:
** Some recording sessions include Holms bringing some type of noisemaker, which he spams to annoy the others.
** Some Season 3 episodes start with the guys futzing around on the character selection screen, spamming the select/unselect or camping on characters they know the others want to play just to {{Troll}} them.
** The arguments over what battle minigames to pick. See Episode 6 of Season 3 for a particularly insane example.
* RageQuit:
** Holms tends to threaten this, leading to a {{Lampshading}} during their first 8-Player run on ''7'''s Neon Heights. By the end of that same episode, [[spoiler:''everyone but Team Dolphin'' resigns]].
** During the group's play-through of ''Mario Party 2'''s Space Land (found on Mr. Doom's YouTube channel), Holms' gambit during a duel minigame against Steeler late in the game failed. Holms, who was not having his best game to begin with, then proceeded to take himself out by setting his controller to the Easy-level CPU.
** After an instance in the second season of LP Every Mario Party where he abandoned the game over a Chance Time where he had actually been handed the lead ([[spoiler:and won the board in the end]]), Holms has vowed to never rage quit again. Time will tell if he keeps his word.
* RedOniBlueOni: Holms and Steeler are the red onis, Mr. Doom and Clel are the blue onis.
* RunningGag:
** "Mr. Freaking Cheating Stinking Doom" and all its variations.
** '''Clel:''' "I love this show." (Referring to Chance Time.)
** "Holms, PRESS A!"
** Pausing right before a character lands on a bad space [[ThisIsGonnaSuck while everyone reacts]]. Especially a Bowser Space.
** Waluigi and the Polio Fund.
** Steeler's mains Toadette and DK being [=BFF=]s.
** Holms throwing his controller.
** Calling Peach and Toadette 'Team Tuna' when they're on the same team in 2 Vs. 2 games, even when it's not Mario Party 7. Likewise, calling the tag team of Yoshi and DK 'Team Danimals' or Birdo and Toadette Team Pink. Not coincidentally, Steeler is usually the one saying it.
* SassyBlackWoman: KY's 'Big Booty' Daisy.
* SelfImposedChallenge: For their run on ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', the guys play with four rules in play:
-->1. No Item Houses\\
2. No 1-Up Houses\\
3. No Bubbling\\
4. No Warp Zones
** Steeler, Clel and Holms have begun a group [[Webcomic/NuzlockeComics Nuzlocke Challenge]] of Fire Red and Leaf Green, following those rules.
* SeriesMascot: [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Serperior]], because it's Mr. Doom's favorite Pokemon.
* SeriousBusiness: In the Trailer for ''LP Every Mario Party'', Steeler's biggest strength is stated to be that he takes Mario Party seriously. (It's also listed as his greatest weakness.)
** ''All'' of them, or at least the core four, take it seriously. Nothing epitomized it more than Season 3 Episode 6: the stinger was ''nine minutes'' of the four of them arguing about which Battle Minigame to play.
* SoreLoser: Everyone has their moments, particularly when fortune swung against them at the last moment, but Holms gets especially vocal.
** The Reverend Inferno's rants at the end of the 8-Player Neon Heights run deserves mention.
** UnsportsmanlikeGloating: Naturally, the prevalence of this doesn't help much.
* SwappedRoles: Discussed at the end of the first episode of Season 5. When the group started out, Holms was the skilled player who kept getting screwed over by the other players and got salty about it, while Clel was largely calm but consistently in last place. Nowadays Clel is the one taking the lead and then being screwed over by everyone else, while Holms never gets the success in the first place. Punctuated by Holms deciding not to get his hopes up, while Clel says "Bullshit!" on several occasions.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Landing on a red space apparently signals that the character's plotting to do this, particularly if it leads to a 3-on-1 minigame.
* TheStinger: Several episodes include a highlight/lowlight reel at the end.
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: It's Mr. Doom, not Doom. He particularly likes to call ''2'''s Bowser out on this.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Waluigi, as voiced by The Reverend Inferno.
* ThrowingTheFight: Sometimes seen when one player is dominating and a co-op minigame comes up: rather than win and strengthen his lead, his partner may choose to deliberately blow the game.
* [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Evil Player]]: Mr. Doom plays on the vast majority of the maps.
** In their run of ''New Super Mario Bros. U'', Holms seems to have taken this role over, getting in the way and throwing the baby Yoshis and other players off cliffs as often as possible.
* TokenWhite: Of the core four, Steeler's the only white man.
* {{Troll}}: Whenever Clel has the option to land on [[LuckBasedMission Chance Time]], nine times out of ten, he ''will'' end up taking it, even if he's in the lead. A few of the other players even [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] how he usually has a big grin on his face when he does so.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Season 3 Episode 7 changed things up by having them play eight player mode, with them using both hands to control the characters in eight player games.
* VillainProtagonist: Mr. Doom's also the guy who edits and uploads the videos.
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: Parodied via narration at the end of the ''Sweet Dream'' playthrough.
* WritersCannotDoMath: One comment pointed out that Steeler miscalculated the odds during the Pagoda Peak playthrough. The probability of rolling 4 of the same number is not 1/10,000. Since the dice blocks are numbered one to five, and there are 5 possible ways to get all 4 numbers being the same, the probability ends up being: 5/(5^4) = 1/125 (about the same as a golden with 1-10 blocks)
* YankTheDogsChain:
** In Grand Canal, where the Flutter Orbs come fast and furious, Steeler gets his hands on one... [[spoiler:only to find out he can't use it while Toadette's Triple Shroom is still in effect. And it doesn't expire until after the last turn of the game]].
** In ''3'''s Creepy Cavern, after a series of unfortunate events, [[spoiler:Steeler]] gets a big break via Chance Time... but while he's celebrating, [[spoiler:he accidentally hits the TV, ending the game]].
** This also ended up happeneing in 1's Luigi's Engine Room near the end of a minigame during the last five turns. [[spoiler:Steeler panics when the obstacle he is running from gets closer and hits the TV, ending the game.]]
** During the 8-Player match on Bowser's Enchanted Inferno, after a star gets bought, it moves ''right in front of Team Mollusk''... only for the team who just bought the star to land on a Happening Space that changes its location.
** When revisiting Toad Road for ''LP Every Mario Party'', landing on a Reverse Space leads to Holms collecting ''30 Ministars'' right near the end of the game... before ending up on a Bowser Space. Bowser proceeds to [[spoiler:take half his stars, bumping him down to third]].
** Steeler starts off Sweet Dream extremely salty due to his dislike of ''5'''s luck-based nature. Thanks to star-spawning luck, use of items, a Chomp space and a happening space that forces all the other players to donate coins, capsules or stars to the person who lands on it, he ends up with seven stars to everyone else's ''zero'' around the board's halfway point. [[spoiler:Even without there being a single Chance Time, he ''still'' loses. ''To Clel'']].
*** Of course, even Steeler himself admitted he wouldn't mind losing that match, partly due to his dislike of extreme luck in general, and partly because Holms spent the ''[[HumiliationConga entire match]]'' getting almost nothing.
* YouCantGetYeFlask: A verbal variation: after several incidents where correctly guessing a certain fruit during Mic Minigames was treated as a mistake, the guys realized that [[spoiler: they were saying grape, not grape'''s''']].
