[[caption-width-right:350:"And welcome to [[LetsPlay let's play]]… TV Tropes!"]]

Mark Fischbach (born June 28, 1989), better known under his Website/YouTube alias Markiplier, is an aspiring VA and gamer based in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles (formerly of Cincinnati, Ohio) who broadcasts LetsPlay videos on Website/YouTube. His channel predominately features OTT reaction videos and playthroughs of SurvivalHorror games. He also does charity livestreams and comedy skits.

For a sampling of his best material, ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent Amnesia]]'', ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' (all five), [[VideoGame/{{Ib}} various]] [[VideoGame/MadFather RPG]] [[VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse Horror]] [[VideoGame/{{OFF}} games]], and ''VideoGame/SCPContainmentBreach'' are a good place to start. He also records ongoing [=LPs=] of non-horror titles, such as ''VideoGame/HappyWheels'' and ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''. Another unusual aspect of the channel are user-submitted [[GameMod Mods]], frequently those adapted from ''Amnesia'' and ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' (notable examples of the latter include ''VideoGame/CryOfFear'' and ''VideoGame/AfraidOfMonsters''); Mark enjoys spreading the love to indie developers and plugs their submissions almost weekly. For a long time, he had also recorded a series of videos called ''Drunk VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' with his two friends, [[ButtMonkey Wade]] and [[PluckyComicRelief Bob]], but it was discontinued after 69 episodes due to Mark's inability to process alcohol properly.

Markiplier reached [[SerialEscalation 18 million subscribers]], a number which continues to grow; as of this writing, he has over seven billion views of his videos, which can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/user/markiplierGAME here.]] His brother, Tom, makes the webcomic Webcomic/{{Twokinds}} and has appeared in Markiplier videos.

He's also appeared in at multiple music videos by Random Encounters, most notably the ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' songs! Watch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a95adUi2W2Y the first one here]].

On September 20th, 2015, he went on a hiatus due to the [[https://www.facebook.com/Cyndago/posts/744142055713238 sudden]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_cxoZLPyR0 and tragic death]] of his friend Daniel Kyre of Cyndago. On October 5th, 2015, he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWQ34ixgx-k returned from his hiatus]], and has also set up a fundraiser to benefit the Kyre family to help pay for medical expenses and funeral costs (link is in the video description).

!!Markiplier and his videos provide examples of:
%%AN EDITING COMMENT TO ALL TROPERS: Weblinks are NOT examples! Examples should be written and explained as to how any given trope applies to it per wiki policy. Additionally, please refrain from troping Markiplier as a person. TV Tropes discusses works of fiction, of which Let’s Plays and Web Videos are catergorised as such. All examples should come from the videos posted on his YouTube channel.

[[foldercontrol]]
[[folder:A-C]]
* AbortedArc: Drunk VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} and, by extension, drunk playthroughs of anything else, is pretty much done forever, considering Mark's body [[https://youtu.be/wPjr8sT9t8E?t=462 can't process alcohol correctly]] and continuing the series would mean putting his health at risk.
** His VideoGame/{{Undertale}} playthrough would have ended prematurely due to the fanbase berating him for [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings not playing it "the right way"]], with some inadvertently spoiling [[spoiler:the more serious side to Sans]] while criticizing Mark's goofy-sounding choice of voice acting for said character. However, he eventually streamed his playthrough of the entire Pacifist route along with Tyler, who had no prior experience of the game.
* AchievementsInIgnorance: Quite a handful of the games Mark plays have puzzles in them, and whether he admits it or not at any given time, there are quite a few puzzles and other problems he's managed to solve [[IHaveNoIdeaWhatImDoing without having any idea]] [[IndyPloy what to do]].
** Mark managed to solve a riddle in his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse'' without knowing what the riddle was.
** He knew the numbers in the safe combination in ''VideoGame/AoOni'', but the clue provided was of no help, so he was relegated to making a guess. He got it right on his first guess.
** During his playthrough of VideoGame/{{Ib}} he managed to solve a puzzle involving several of the same paintings... by walking to a row and happening to pick the right one without even knowing how the puzzle worked.
** In the Silent Hill Alchemilla, Mark solved a box puzzle by mashing random buttons and a valve puzzle by turning random valves. In his words, "this game sure is good at making the dumb feel smart!"
** In ''VideoGame/MadFather'', he used the mini-chainsaw on a random person, causing the person to [[{{Gorn}} explode into bloody chunks]]. While it caused him to have a HeroicBSOD, it was nonetheless the correct solution to advance.
** In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', Golden Freddy [[JumpScare appeared]] right at the end of the phone call on the third night. Mark panicked and pulled out the camera, as it was the only option that wouldn't force him to look. As he exited the camera while looking at a poster, Mark managed to instantly look at the Golden Freddy poster through the camera without knowing that doing so would de-summon Golden Freddy.
** In ''Five Nights at Freddy's 3'', Markiplier achieves this when ''he is the first one to receive the demo from Scott Cawthon along with a set amount of youtubers who were specially picked hours before the game's release''. There are ''no'' playthroughs online, ''no'' instructions - the [[MissionControlIsOffItsMeds Phone Dude]] is about as helpful as a brick - and yet he manages to somehow beat nights 1 and 2 with very little trouble [[labelnote:spoiler]]It later turned out that it's impossible to die on night 1 either way[[/labelnote]]. This is strengthened when the full version comes out and he breezes through the nights '''with no issues at all'''. This becomes even more noteworthy when he does a second playthrough to get the GoldenEnding while actually knowing how to play, and ends up failing repeatedly on the levels he'd accidentally breezed through prior.
** In his first playthrough of ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'', while playing as Mike he is [[JumpScare Jump Scared]] by a wolf, and fails the quicktime event to punch it. The wolf turns out to be docile.
** [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] in Slither.io, where he got into the top 4 before he had any idea what he was doing.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the fan game ''With the Addition of Markiplier'', Tiny Box Tim is the main antagonist, having grown extremely bitter after Mark "abandoned" him in ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent''. In the true ending of the game, [[spoiler:in-game Mark ends up [[DeathByAdaptation destroying him]]]], much to the real Mark's dismay.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Attempted in his playthrough of ''Silent Hill: Alchemilla.''
-->'''Markiplier:''' Is some diabolic demon gonna come dashing down this dank and dusty hallway filled with death and destruction? Dare I say that it doesn't... know... what... I am gonna do to that demonic... dastardly devil. Yeah!
** In his ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' playthrough, he initially calls Bonnie, the bunny animatronic, "Bunny Bolliday", which doubles as this and a ShoutOut to Billie Holliday. In ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' he takes to calling Springtrap (the main animatronic) "Bunny Bastard Bitch Balls".
* AffectionateParody: The commentary for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH1dxBctsZ0 episode 14]] of Turbo Dismount mostly consists of him affectionately making fun of the WebVideo/GameGrumps - of which he is an honourary member.
-->'''Mark:''' [ambiguously australian accent] Hey boys, hey boys, it's me, Ross from Game Grumps, hey, what's your favorite episode, boys- [ragdoll crashes on the first obstacle]
-->'''Mark:''' [normal voice] God dammit Ross.
* AGoodNameForARockBand: During his ''Outlast'' playthrough, he comes up with "Tea Party of the Dead." Of course, he immediately [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it.
** From the final part of ''White Night'', he suggests that "Eyeballs in the Wall" would be a good name for a Death Metal band name.
** In ''Fibrillation'' he comes up with "Origin of Insanity". He then demands that anyone who uses it give him 25 cents for every note they play.
** In ''Videogame/TheCrookedMan'', he gives the name "Menagerie of Insanity". Humorously enough, Menagerie of Insanity is already the name of a few things, including an e-book by Jacob Russell Dring.
** And in ''Videogame/TheEvilWithin'', he's come up with "Sounds of Nightmare" after hearing the incredibly loud scraping of a thresher trap.
* AlcoholInducedIdiocy: Drunk Minecraft. The only conclusion where you get a group of drunk adults playing Minecraft with an admin that's happy to give them whatever they want, provided they don't piss the admin off, which of course they do.
* AlterEgoActing: Mark has created quite a few alter-egos, with the most famous of them being Wilford Warfstache (an eccentric, pink-moustached reporter) and Darkiplier (a serous and shadowy manipulator). Whenever they make an appearance in his videos, they’re portrayed as being completely different characters while he interacts with them as Markiplier (his online persona). All of them are listed on the [[Characters/{{Markiplier}} characters page]].
* AlwaysABiggerFish: Darkiplier and [[LetsPlay/{{Jacksepticeye}} Antisepticeye]] are equally threatening as evil alter-egos of Let's Players, but there's one thing they fear: a hungry Dark Chica![[note]] Said video is considered to be non-canon however, since it is meant to be a comedic crossover.[[/note]]
* AmbiguousSyntax: In part one of his "Fear Amnesia" playthrough, he takes note of a giant-ass knife. He then clarifies "Not a giant ass-knife, a giant-ASS knife. Got to watch where your hyphens are."
* {{Angrish}}: His commentary regularly ventures into this, especially while playing particularly obtuse puzzle games or ones riddled with FakeDifficulty.
** Some of his reaction videos lampoon this with on-screen text attempting to decode what he just said -- or giving it titles like "Walrus" and "Man-Baby Mating Call".
-->''itsamonstermidgymonster''
-->''ESSAGUNAGETME''
-->''UHNOWANAZAPPIN''
-->''WHUTISZIZHATHING?''
%%* ArchEnemy: For the purposes of ''Five Nights at Freddy's 2'', onward: Balloon Boy.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When he plays ''Whack the Cheater,'' Markiplier's complaints are that you shouldn't kill people, that you should direct your anger at the proper person if you're being cheated on, and that the game had no sound.
%%* AscendedMeme: Whoever made ''A Late Night Drink'' put in a "Where's the blacksmith?!" reference.
* AtomicFBomb: Combined with ScreamsLikeALittleGirl in the second video of his ''VideoGame/{{Monstrum}}'' LP, when he sees the second monster that he had not encountered during several prior playthrough attempts.
-->'''Markiplier:''' ''*in a super high voice*'' WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU?!
%%** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEDLqaJi11o?t=10m21s Drops one during his Slender: Haunt 1.1 playthrough.]]
%%** Also during his oculus rift playthrough of Dreadfalls he started dropping these in an increasing amount as he wore down.
%%** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66sNL_2ztnw&t=10m4s Drops one]] after dealing with [[spoiler:Balloon Boy]] once again in his ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'' playthrough.
* AuthorAppeal: Russians, he loves Russians. He also loves dogs, as multiple vlogs and playthroughs will show you.
%%* BackToBackBadasses: Mark and his brother Tom in VideoGame/OrcsMustDie 2.
* BadassBaritone: When not [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl scared shitless]], Mark has a pretty deep voice. This lends itself well not just to narration, but also to [[EvilSoundsDeep giving viewers and/or fellow players a nice scare]]. Hence he has lent his baritone announcer voice to other Youtube projects such as ''WebVideo/ChillingTalesForDarkNights''.
* BadassBoast: Markiplier will make ridiculous boasts while playing [[SurvivalHorror horror]] games, usually to the effect of him being "too tough" or "so handsome" that the monsters are avoiding him, only to have one crash in and scare him into screaming bloody murder.
** Mark declares that "I am the KING of Five Nights at Freddy's!" after beating said game on 4/20 mode, a custom game mode set to the highest difficulty level.
%%** In part six of his Eleusis LetsPlay he brags about how he could take on a wolf.
* BadassMustache: The signature of Mark's AlterEgoActing, Wilford Warfstache, is a giant pink mustache. It has now become something of an official Markiplier emblem. Sometimes he even wears it while recording!
* BadBadActing: Mark's attempt at hiding his knowledge of the fact that "Error #53" is a horror game and not a cutesy adventure game is... unconvincing. Especially noticeable as unlike his other videos he doesn't react to the scares at all, and blames all the monsters and jumpscares on TechnoBabble terms.
%%* BadSanta: Mark-in-a-Santa-suit more or less acts this way when playing the Christmas versions of ''A Very Organized Thief'' and ''Viscera Cleanup Detail''.
%#** Mark plays the Happy Wheels in-game version of Santa this way too. Not far off the Happy Wheels "canon" as Santa laughs jovially when his elves die.
* BaitAndSwitch: In his joke video about what he does while he's not making Let's Plays, he has "Steal other Youtubers' ideas" at Number 4. We then have a shot of him staring at LetsPlay/PewDiePie videos... before he tells his digitally-voiced parrot [[WebVideo/JonTron Jacque]] to shut up about stealing them.
* BerserkButton: Interrupting him mid intro isn't smart either, as several Drunk Minecrafts will show you:
-->'''Markiplier:''' Hello everybody, and welcome back to...\\
'''Bob:''' Adjga...\\
'''Markiplier:''' [[BigShutUp SHUUUUUT UUUUUP!!!]]

-->'''Markiplier:''' Hello every...\\
'''Bob:''' Third time in a row!\\
'''Markiplier:''' God Damn it!! - *incoherent babbling and FacePalm on webcam* [[INeedAFreakingDrink I'm finishing off this bottle of wine]].
** Gameplay that involve SomeDexterityRequired. Mark liked ''VideoGame/{{Octodad}}'' itself but was in a constant rage over its bad controls throughout his playthrough. Similarly, his first attempt at playing ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hL7Jg-uT96E I Am Bread]]'' causes him to be so angry that he appears to be ''[[BerserkerTears crying]]'' at one point.
** He simply can't stand ''VideoGame/{{Vanish}}'' due to victory being based on [[TrialAndErrorGameplay random]] [[LuckBasedMission chance]] rather than individual skill or ability. Even mentioning it will generally get Mark on the defensive, with him typically insisting that he beat it fair and square. This created an amusing scenario in which Vanish was mentioned in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UPW2RLw9eA&t=5m20s fan-made game]], setting in-game Mark off on a rant that supposedly lasted four hours and ended with "and people died", which inadvertently sets off the ''real'' Markiplier, who only realizes just in time that he too was about to start ranting about Vanish.
%%** Perhaps [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKp7tg_sgcY THIS]] is his best known example.
* BigNo: Occurs when he accidentally knocks the heart that he needed to transplant out of the edge of the screen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmpmeiVhuNI&t=10m in Surgeon Simulator 2013.]] He also does this occasionally whenever he loses a patient, but he [[SubvertedTrope then cuts it off]] with an 'oh well', or 'next patient'.
** Occurs again when Mark thinks he's finally completed Vanish, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkl5tSOARr0&t=17m only to be killed while unlocking the gate.]]
** Many, many, ''many'' examples in his playthrough of ''VideoGame/IAmBread'', [[NintendoHard for obvious reasons]].
** He lets out two [[BigNo Big No's]] when he finds out that [[spoiler:he's about to harvest the fur of his in-game cat for money]] in ''VideoGame/ExoptableMoney''.
** He does this in response to a particular comment telling him that he'll never be a [[WebVideo/GameGrumps Grump]] during a roast video.
** In his playthrough of VideoGame/HuniePop upon receiving [[spoiler:the [[BestialityIsDepraved Bestiality achievement]].]]
** He lets out a comical one during his 'Reading Your Comments' video in response to one of the questions asking for marriage.
** He has a surprisingly large one during his first VideoGame/UntilDawn play-through when he accidentally lets [[spoiler:Ashley]] die.
%%** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0p2EJBiITo this]] video the titular event has him let out one.
* BigYes: He celebrates with one whenever he manages to complete a night in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' as a result of their infamous difficulty of keeping the animatronics at bay. Special mention goes to the time when he [[HarderThanHard beats 4-20 mode.]]
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: A staple of the Drunk Minecraft series, with so much of what they're building resembling penises, and whatever else they make typically not having ''any'' resemblance to what they initially had in mind.
* BlatantLies: "Totally not afraid" of X. Running to the exit for "efficiency". "Just unlocked this door here, with a super secret code I guessed on the first try."
** ''Drunk Minecraft'' is a kid-friendly all-ages series. Just ask all the penises.
** ''Besiege'' features the line of Nota-Pe-Nis tractors, which are most definitely specialized farming equipment and absolutely not vaguely phallic siege engines.
* BloodyHilarious: His ''Happy Wheels Highlights ''is basically Bloody Hilarious: The Series due to the creatively gory situations in which the MadeOfPlasticine characters get reduced into LudicrousGibs.
* BlueScreenOfDeath: One level in VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker has him rage to a point where the video goes into a mock BSOD.

-->TANTRUM: THROWN;

-->If this is the first time you've encountered this error, please restart your computer. If this error appears again, please follow these steps:
--> Remove Mario Maker game disk. Break disk in half.
* BookEnds: His ''Hotel Remorse'' video starts and ends with the presence of the creepy Woody mask on a black background.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: Says [[LetsPlay/JackSepticEye "Top of the mornin' to ya, laddies!"]] often enough for this to qualify.
* BrainBleach:
** While playing [[VideoGame/{{Outlast}} Outlast: Whistleblower]], he's grossed out by an inmate aggressively masturbating over a pile of corpses. Later in the DLC, he was so disturbed by the tableau that the Groom created of "a woman giving birth" that Mark actually blurred out the scene and told viewers if they wanted to see it, they'd either have to play the game on their own, or go watch someone else's playthrough.
** In his [[VideoGame/{{FiveNightsAtFuckboys}}Five Nights at Fuckboy's 3 playthrough]] [[spoiler:he finds the "hydra dildo" in room 7 and begins to quip "does it have like... nine-heads and when you cut one o-" then he stops short with a vaguely disturbed look on his face and simply continues playing.]]
** Mark is quite disgusted in his first episode of ''VideoGame/{{Soma}}'' when he believes that the black fluid dripping from the machines is robot semen.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: When playing "Cry of Fear: Halloween Collab", Mark hears a noise he's never heard before. He says "What was that!? I never heard that! It was like a frickin' bull! Or a moose! Or a moose bull! Or a boose! Or a mole! I don't know. It was something. I didn't like it."
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: His playing of [[WebVideo/{{Danisnotonfire}} Dan]] and [[WebVideo/AmazingPhil Phil]]'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG9_Cs0wbN0 7 second challenge]] app, which has him naming three things that will be invented come the year 3000.
-->"Hoverboards, time travel, and then.. robots you can have sex with."
* BreakTheCutie: What VideoGame/PresentableLiberty does to him. It starts normal and humorous, but gradually Mark undergoes a SanitySlippage, getting so immersed in the game that [[spoiler:the deaths of Sal and especially Charlotte]] leave him broken and empty.
--> '"I stopped ''playing'' the game and just started ''living'' it halfway through that."'
%%* BrickJoke: "[[UnstoppableRage Where's The]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsJO-ZSqcjw Blacksmith?]]" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSwclpVEIso He finds it]] and [[spoiler:[[TwistEnding it turns out]] [[TomatoInTheMirror to be him all along.]]]]
* BringMyBrownPants: After encountering (and being killed multiple times by) the blind and lobotomized patient in VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares and realizing that he has to rely on his senses to attack, Mark coolly tries to play off how frightened the patient made him.
--> '''Mark:'''[[https://youtu.be/QR4ncSuuGpU?list=PL3tRBEVW0hiAUsKnPUnW43eW91huYek8_&t=599 "You didn't hear nothing. I ain't worried about nothing. You don't smell nothing. That's not poop in ''my'' pants. Who-who put all this poop in my pants?!"]]
** This exchange during his playthrough of Five Nights at Freddy's 2:
--> '''Mark:'''"I can't let Chica in here. If I die by Chica, I'm gonna literally poop my pants!" (Five seconds later, he drops the camera, and Chica's there to kill him) "HIIII, CHICA!! What the hell?!"
* BrokenRecord: He has released three videos ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQQ832etlYA "rar"]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdZAnd4YVNU "BOOP SUPERJUICE"]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buEAc96SuyY "RÖKNING FÖRBJUDEN"]]) that consist of a single short loop repeated over and over for 10 minutes.
** [[Franchise/{{Sonic}} Gotta go fast!]] Gotta go fast! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7fpM_PyUNE Gotta go fast...]]
%%* BullyingADragon: In episode 13 of Drunk Minecraft, Mark spends a large chunk of the episode teasing Latingoddess (the server moderator) by shipping Zombiemold (Latin's boyfriend and the owner of the server) with all of his female fans. Needless to say, [[TraumaCongaLine the end result is what you'd expect.]]
* ButtonMashing: In this [[https://youtu.be/_dcmkufzLto?t=1m38s video]], he demonstrates that yes, he can button mash ''very'' fast with his mouse.
* CaptainObvious: His reaction to seeing an unmoving man covered in blood and wounds in part two of Grey was simply: "That guy is dead!"
* TheCameo: He's the announcer on the ''SMASH!'' track on Music/{{Starbomb}}'s ''Player Select'' album.
** In an example of someone appearing in his videos, [[Creator/{{Egoraptor}} Ar]][[WebVideo/GameGrumps in]] shows up a couple of times in the second part of his ''Sonic Dreams Collection'' playthrough. Given that he sometimes records at the Grump Office, this isn't surprising.
* CameraAbuse: "Fast.EXE" ends with Sonic Mark [[https://youtu.be/G7fpM_PyUNE?t=68 running head-on towards the camera and slamming into it.]]
* CatchPhrase:
** [[CoolChair "I got a chair!"]] in VideoGame/{{Amnesia|TheDarkDescent}} and [[MakeSureHesDead "I don't trust you!"]] in VideoGame/DeadSpace. "(HOLY) BALLS!!!" in general.
** Addressing each scare as an unwanted door-to-door salesman. "''(shuddering laugh)'' "Noooo, thank you" and "I don't want any."
** "Hello, Baaaaaaaaaaaabay!" to female characters, statues, and pictures in his ''Amnesia'' playthroughs.
** "Like a boosh!", "I booosh you!" "I boooll you!" while playing box-jumping puzzles.
** "Haaaaa-biskey!" or "SHABOOSHKI!”
** He ends his video with this sentence: "Thank you all so much for watching, and as always, I will [[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger SEEEE YOOOUUU]]... in the next video. BYE BYE!"
** "I'm too pro!" [[TemptingFate Almost invariably, something bad follows this statement.]]
** "SHADDAP, NURSE!" ''(apropos [[TheGhost no one in particular]])''. Spawned from his playthrough of Surgeon Simulator, he invariably says this line whenever he’s put into a doctor role.
** In Drunk Minecraft: "ZOMBIE!!!" (the owner of the server) and "Shut up, Wade!/[[BlameGame I blame Wade"]].
** "BOXES!!" whenever he spots a pile of destructible crates in a [[VideoGame/GarrysMod GMod]] horror map.
** "All right, all right, all ''riiiiiiight''."
** "[[GroinAttack Dick-punching party]]!" Said when extremely frustrated at a game's developer.
** Expect Mark to say "OW, MY ASS!" or "OW, MY PENIS/BALLS!" if he dies a rather... [[GroinAttack painful]] or [[AssShove embarrassing]] death in ''VideoGame/HappyWheels''.
** "All right, kiddies!", for whenever he's imitating Santa Claus.
** He occasionally calls monsters - such as the VideoGame/AoOni - "buttstabbers".
** "That's what she said." Spoken whenever he makes an innuendo.
** In ''Outlast'', he's taken to saying "Little piggy no no, little piggy go go home now" whenever he goes through a narrow squeeze, thanks to the [[ImplacableMan big burly guy]] calling him a "little pig" before [[DestinationDefenestration tossing him off]] a two floor ledge.
** Asking "Did I won? Diiid I woooon?" whenever game endings are unclear, not even providing AWinnerIsYou screens.
** In {{VideoGame/Happy Wheels}}, whenever he plays as Wheelchair Guy, he starts off by saying, "I'm just an old man!" Doubles as CaptainObvious.
** Every time he successfully accomplishes ''anything'' in {{VideoGame/Dishonored}}, be it [[FlashStep teleporting behind a foe]], [[StealthExpert sneaking by a guard]], [[OneManArmy slaughtering his way through a group of enemies]], or [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking picking up a piece of bread]], he will proudly say "Like a shadow in the NIIIIGGHHT...", or "Master Assassin!"
** When figuring out game objectives, he'll usually say "I'll play your game, you ''rogue''", or "I'm picking up what you're putting down..."
** "You are so weird!" for whenever he comes across a strange person/creature repeatedly.
** Saying (or screaming, rather) "[[DrivenToMadness I'M GONNA LOSE MY MIND!]]" when he's particularly frustrated with a game, mostly when he's getting killed multiple times, very quickly.
** "I saw a shadow!/I saw something in the darkness! You can't say I didn't!/Don't tell me you didn't just see that!" usually said when he spots something moving in a dark corner, or running past him.
** When confronted with a JumpScare or other monster, he'll say "HI!" or "Hiiii." in his inimitable, exaggerated fashion.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Octodad}}'', his catchphrase is "If I could ''just stop'' doing X" when he's trying (and failing) to accomplish a task. "[[HughMann Normal human]]! NORMAL!" also frequently comes into play when characters’ attention are focused on him.
** "Fuck a duck!", "I'm fluuuuuubernucked!", and “I’m so boned, I'm so boned, I'm so BONED!" whenever he’s screwed up.
** "What a bunch of bull!" when he dies or gets hurt in what he considers to be a bullshit way.
** "Goody-goody gumdrops!" when he does something right or something doesn't fuck up.
** "How big are your boobs?" seems to appear a lot in his play through of Huniepop.
** [[SelfDeprecation "I could've been an engineer..." ]]
** Mark tends to gush "this is SO COOL" when a game features something he's interested in, especially space. Naturally this reaches [[UpToEleven ridiculous levels]] when he plays ''Universe Sandbox''.
** "Once more into the breach" when it's usually after a retry or two.
%%* CassandraTruth: Nobody believed Mark when he started screaming out [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpL9EnN-RBQ Latin's return.]] [[spoiler:It's not until the very end of the video when she blows Mark and Yami up does anyone believe him.]]
* CensoredForComedy: The entire point of his Unnecessary Censorship videos, where he bleeps out innocent words to make them seem more dirty.
* CerebusSyndrome: The first three chapters of ''Who Killed Markiplier?'' tell a comedic story that heavily references ''TabletopGame/{{Clue}}''. [[spoiler:The fourth chapter is a dark GainaxEnding that kills off the FeaturelessProtagonist, and reveals the origins of [[BewareTheSillyOnes Wilford Warfstache]] and [[HumanoidAbomination Darkiplier]].]]

** A Drunk Minecraft [[http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNwlIuILqeY Christmas special]], with FyreUK.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Mark has his moments that causes him to come up with commentary that makes no sense. It's particularly obvious whenever he's sick [[{{Determinator}} and yet makes videos anyways]] or when he's playing Google Feud.
* ClusterFBomb: Markiplier typically makes a conscious effort to use [[GoshDangItToHeck PG language]] (saying such things as "hecky-heck" or bleeping his own language), even while playing video games that qualify as an M-rating, though will start swearing (sometimes A LOT) when he gets too frustrated with glitches in the games, his inability to overcome obstacles within them, or just generally freaked out.
** His Let's Play of ''Dreadhalls'' is notable for possibly having the highest F-Bomb count in any Markiplier video to date.
** One part of his Surgeon Simulator 2013 Let's Play had him so furious that he stopped playing for a moment just to let out a series of cusses.
-->''"I have to get all the fucks out."''
** On his second playthrough of Vapour, he [[spoiler:dies very many times]] causing him to rage. [[spoiler:In the end, he gives us an amazing series of f-bombs, while [[FlippingTheBird Flipping the bird]] with two fingers.]]
-->'''Markiplier:''' God fuck me! God fuck it, fuck-fuck it, I dont want it! Fuck you, and fuck all of you, fuck you to hell, FUCK OOOOOFFFF!
** A sudden unexpected [[https://youtu.be/HiJJjIGDGII?t=35m5s facehugger out of nowhere]] prompts another another one near the end of AlienIsolation. (Mainly because he hadn't saved in a bit and had to repeat things)
** One of the {{Animated Adaptation}}s of his FiveNightsAtFreddys3 play through highlights a somewhat creative string of you, fuck, and "fucky".[[note]]'''Markiplier:''' Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck! Fucky, fucky, fucky YOU![[/note]]
** His first playthrough of ''Depth'', due to combining his dislike for the ocean and especially sharks, is close to 20 minutes of Mark delivering rapid fire "fucks" as he tries to survive the onslaught (by one viewer's count, nearly 106 fucks).
* CompanionCube: In the [[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent Amnesia]] custom story ''A Late Night Drink'', Mark finds a tiny version of the normal wooden box and [[CutenessProximity grows fond of it]], calling it Tiny Box Tim. He gets separated from it later on, much to his sorrow, and when he finally crosses paths with the tiny box once again near the end of the story, [[YankTheDogsChain he's unable to pick it up.]] Tiny Box Tim has since become a recurring "character" in any of his Let's Plays of Amnesia custom stories, and a familiar sidekick showing up in the gifts his fans send him, including many fan-created Markiplier games.
** In his Let's Play of ''The Forest'', he is attacked by a female native who he kills and accidentally dismembers, grabbing hold of one of her arms. He quickly discovers the arm to be a powerful and easy way to clear out branches and vegetation, adopting it and calling it "Armanda." He even starts freaking out when he thinks he's lost the arm.
%%* ComicalAngryFace: From about 20:32 to 21:02 of his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wS7ObQS5CxI video]] of the Cry of Fear mod The Stairway.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In his playthrough of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'' he sees the check after completing five nights and presumes that the date is the main character's birthday. It takes him the next video to realize [[spoiler:it's a sign that the game's actually a prequel.]]
* CoolChair: Makes frequent use of and references to these during ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' and its subsequent Mods as a useless weapon/security blanket against the unkillable monsters featured in the games.
-->'''Markiplier:''' I have a chair! Yeah! You didn't like it last time! [-You'll like it even less this time. 'Cuz it's goin up yo butt.-] [[AssShove Whole chair, up yo butt!]]
* {{Corpsing}}: In his [[https://youtu.be/0APwKHtdMCY World's 2nd Quietest Let's Play]], he realizes that he can't whisper his Santa voice without breaking down laughing.
* CurbStompBattle: PlayedForLaughs in his Lichtspeer video, where it's him with the titular weapon vs a whole crowd of people with "[[LaserSword light whips]]" (glowsticks) [[spoiler:It's essentially an anti-climactic line-up as they all take turns getting stabbed one at a time.]]
* CutawayGag:
** When enraged by Amnesia: A Late Night Drink, Mark takes a break to calm himself down. During this break, he cuts to images of kittens.
** He also makes multiple kitten-scenes when climbing the octopus in Octodad. However, even the kitten-scenes become increasingly traumatizing the more frustrated he grows.
* CutenessProximity: His response to finding a tiny version of the wooden box in the [[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent Amnesia]] custom story ''A Late Night Drink'', whom he names Tiny Box Tim. This also happened when he did his ''VideoGame/SlimeRancher'' video when he encounters the perpetually joyful and carefree slimes.
** It's touched upon in his video of the Markiplier mod for Videogame/DontStarve, explaining that he has a tendency to become fascinated by tiny versions of normal objects (like baby shoes, for example).
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Mark beginning to realize the stalker with VaderBreath is SCP-106. "He's gonna ''get'' me and... bite my nipples off!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder: D-G]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Common to most LetsPlay videos, Markiplier is humorously underwhelmed by the lack of logic that motivates the storyline, making aside comments to diffuse the tension and point out cliches in games.
* DelayedReaction: During his let's play of ''VideoGame/TheCrookedMan'', it took him about a second to realize that the Crooked Man is standing behind him in one segment. He promptly lets out a terrified shriek upon the realization.
** A better example is when he played the demo version of ''It Moves''. It took him a while before he realized that there was a red face getting more visible during the Labyrinth section.
* DespairEventHorizon: Part 13 of his playthrough of ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' has him end up making a choice to "Investigate Voice" with Ashley. [[spoiler:This results in Ashley getting her head torn off by a Wendigo.]] Mark leaves the screen, screaming in frustration, then returns, burying his face in the back of his chair, along with several {{Big No}}s. He even plays through the entire game again just to avoid the outcome, complete with an AtomicFBomb.
** Mark almost has another one in the same playthrough when [[spoiler:Mike]] dies in the final action sequence because Mark thought not moving was the correct solution. It wasn't. But, before the game can save, Mark quits to the title screen and reloads the game.
* {{Determinator}}: Mark has shown time and time again that he hates giving up on finishing games or looking at walkthroughs, since he's determined to prove that he can figure things out himself. If he ever looks at a guide, it's because he's ''really'' stuck.
** Despite how much the game frustrates or scares him, Mark is determined to beat Vanish, even though the game appears to be equally determined to never let him win. Eventually, after nine videos plus hours of playthroughs that we never saw, he finally succeeded.
** The same can be said for his playthrough of VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys. He spends seven hours offscreen attempting to beat "4/20 mode" (the hardest custom difficulty possible) until he finally wins. Taken UpToEleven with him doing the same with the [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2 sequel]], where he plays the Golden Freddy mode, AKA 10/20, for ''nine hours straight''.
** Mark displays his amazing staying power in the fifth episode of his playthrough of ''VideoGame/BenAndEd'', where he attempts to do an [[https://youtu.be/nBos5axGbtE?t=805 incredibly difficult jump course]] in Level 10. The level in question is optional, and within the level, said jump puzzle is also optional. Mark nevertheless tried for ''two and a half hours'' to finish one relatively short challenge. He nevertheless gets infuriated due to [[FakeDIfficulty the game's strange, difficult physics engine and poor, unreliable lighting.]]
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: ''VideoGame/UntilDawn Animated'' has Mark casually slap a wendigo in the face while [[spoiler:retrieving Ashley's body.]]
* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: Invoked when Markiplier encounters Springtrap; he tries to survive by making friendly Chit-chat with him. It doesn't last, but it does stall for quite a while.
* DieChairDie: When playing an ''Amnesia'' custom story, Markiplier will usually make sure to smash any of the small glass display cases lying around.
* {{Dissimile}}: Mark describes ''A Good Husband'' during part one of its playthrough:
-->'''Mark:''' It's kinda like ''Franchise/TheSims''... except not at all like ''The Sims'', because it's not at all like that.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Quite a lot in HuniePop - when he first sees Lola in a bikini, he spends about a minute screaming.
* DoNotTauntCthulhu: He practically waves his hands and dances in front of SCP-096, then barricades himself behind three doors to see if it gives chase. [[TheJuggernaut Yep]].
-->'''Mark:''' ''(wiggles eyebrows)'' ...Is he coming after me? YEAH HE'S COMIN AFTER ME! AAAAGGGH ''(ripped to shreds)''
** He has a bad habit of doing this to the Evil Monkeys in ''Dark Deception''.
--> '''Mark:''' I know I shouldn't mess with them, but they're so much fun to mess with.
-->[Later On]
-->'''Mysterious Voice:''' Run, they're right behind you!
-->'''Mark:''' SHADDUP he's not right behin- OHGODHE'SRIGHTBEHINDME
** A strange example, but in ''One Night at Flumpty's'', Mark sees Grunkfuss the Clown in his office, and scared of the jumpscare that he thinks is coming very soon, he taunts Grunkfuss by saying this-
--> '''Markiplier:''' ''(playfully)'' "N-nothing can happen to ''(Birthday Boy Blam attacks)'' [[HellIsThatNoise MEEeeEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!]] AAH FUUUCK!! '''[[TheFriendNobodyLikes WHAT WAS THAT?]]'''"
* DoubleTake: During his VideoGame/AoOni playthrough, after spending quite some time stuck on a puzzle and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKaFnTa0D0M#t=236 finally, proudly, passing it]].
-->(While going to a locked door he'd just found a key for)
-->'''Mark:''' "Okay sorry I get way too excited about this sort of stuff. I never get these puzzles right, so you gotta give me credit when I get it! And I get it good, ''yeah''. Sorry, little too excited. Little too excited!"
-->(When attempting to enter a door that had previously opened with no problem, and finding it's now locked)
-->'''Mark:''' "Little too excited! Everyone was else was probably- Wait what?"
-->(The titular monster appears right on cue)
* DrinkingGame: The ''Drunk Minecraft'' series, where Mark and his two real life friends Bob and Wade drink alcohol while playing ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''. HilarityEnsues. For a drinking game within a drinking game, take a shot every time a reference is made to ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead''.
** For his YouTube channel in general: take a shot for every video that has the words "scariest game ever" (or a variation thereof) in the title.
* DrJerk: This is how he portrays himself when playing ''Surgeon Simulator''. He's constantly yelling at his "nurse", and the way he treats his patients could be considered MeatgrinderSurgery... except calling it "surgery" is probably being generous.
* {{Eagleland}}: In his eighth Vanish playthough, he passes a lot of the time by recounting the history of America to his viewers.
-->'''Mark:''' We Americans like coffee. We dip our hamburger and donuts into coffee every morning and then we drink that, and then we pray to the American flag, which has a big middle finger on it, by the way...
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His first batch of videos didn't use a facecam. Since Mark's reactions are considered one the best things about him, it makes watching his earliest videos feel very strange.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Invoked; Mark got right up to the final area of ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}'', but then ended his playthrough, saying that because he hadn't earned it legitimately (the game was still incomplete at the time and he had to use console commands to progress) any ending he got would be hollow and meaningless. [[SequelHook However, he did promise to pick the game back up once it's officially released]].
* EldritchAbomination: The wool statues that he, Bob and Wade created in the now discontinued ''Drunk Minecraft'' series can count as this, though it's always PlayedForLaughs.
* EmptyRoomPsych: Lampshaded by Mark after running into another room with nothing but creepy dolls in Neverending Nightmares.
* EpicFail: A lot of his ''Happy Wheels highlights'' highlight these moments, especially the assassin levels where he somehow manages to kill himself a bunch of times, but never the target.
** Of course, bad enough when he manages to stab himself in the head a few times. But repeatedly stabbing yourself in the ''ass''?
** ''Especially'' in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBSfikrbLV4&t=2m26s this moment]] where the most damage he does to the target is knock him over.
** Not to mention the running gag of his accidentally decapitating himself on pogo levels. Just normal levels, not traps or explosives.
** In VideoGame/PropHunt video 13 he manages to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VObP-Kv-4s&t=10m die]] ''before the round starts''.
** During ''The Impossible Quiz'' he opted to use a skip on a question that could never be gotten wrong.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}'', he ended up wandering around for several minutes (even adding in a JumpCut to cut out even more wandering) when all he had to do was jump up to a small ledge. He immediately [[HeroicSelfDeprecation called himself out on it]].
** In Ross' VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker level, he managed to [[https://youtu.be/m1l3nYSdyIA?t=11m27s completely screw up]] a puzzle by putting a spring in an awkward position, causing the shell to fall off the platform and screw his chances of beating it. Mark immediately suffered a HeroicBSOD as a result of his screw up.
** In Dead by Daylight, after Mark warns Wade about a bear trap by him, Mark proceeds to step into that same trap. He runs into another trap shortly after.
* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: In his 'reaction compilation' videos, the subtitles often simply revert to question marks, a cascade of letters, or the word 'derp'.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Mark obviously does not like [[VideoGame/MadFather Dr. Drevis]], especially as the game is winding down. He wonders why the doctor would cheat on his wife when she's very attractive and very loving and devoted. He even becomes disgusted with him wanting to [[spoiler:turn his daughter into a doll and wanting her to be "ripe enough". His treatment towards Maria is even worse and Mark voices his disapproval of it.]]
** He's very disgusted by [[VideoGame/TheLastOfUs David the cannibal leader]]. He's obviously not very keen of cannibalism, but he's downright furious with David using this as a means to keep a whole village alive, especially since women and children live there. What makes him hate David even more is his interest in a [[{{Ephebophile}} fourteen-year-old girl]].
** He reaches the good ending of {{VideoGame/Misao}} and is disgusted by what the villains did to the titular character.
* EvilLaugh: Sometimes does this, such as in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=887Ctfk5rSY&t=14m this video]], when he accidentally kills a patient in ''VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013'' and goes a little crazy, pretending to be a DeadlyDoctor..
** He also frequently does this while playing ''VideoGame/HappyWheels''' Kill Them All levels.
** In [[https://youtu.be/dn-ZrC-R-AU?t=3m40s his playthrough of Sonic Dreams Collection]], after creating his OriginalCharacter in the character creator, he tries to position it, causing it to glitch around. Markiplier pretends to be the character, giving it a demonic voice and a creepy laugh, followed by a {{Beat}} and Mark saying, in his normal voice, "[[MoodWhiplash Okay...]]"
* FailedASpotCheck:
** Mark fails to notice on-screen prompts and hints quite often in his Let's Play of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace3''.
** In Part 4 of ''VideoGame/AoOni'', he manages to miss [[spoiler:a hanging body]], as he's more focused on solving a puzzle at the time. It's only after it [[spoiler:hits the ground]] that he notices it.
** In Part 2 of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'', he begins the fourth day listening to the starting phone conversation as per usual. Unfortunately, he becomes so interested in it that he completely forgets to check any part of the building and defend himself, in a game about checking parts of the building so he can defend himself. [[spoiler:Needless to say, he's killed before the phone conversation even ends.]]
** A particularly {{egregious}} example occurs when he plays ''{{VideoGame/Monstrum}}.'' Mark hears the monster stomping around a floor above him, but when the footsteps fade away for a brief period, he assumes he's safe and launches into his usual amused ramblings. When you watch the video, you can actually hear the monster stomping up to him and ''see the light flickering off of him,'' but Mark is too busy [[{{MotorMouth}} talking to the ceiling to notice.]] Amusingly, the monster waits for Mark to stop speaking before ''roaring right into his ear, making him freak out.''
** In ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'', he somehow manages to miss picking up the Agony Crossbow (a silent and very versatile weapon) ''multiple times'' throughout his playthrough, ironically complaining about the lack of a crossbow whenever he picks up various types of bolts for it. It takes him until ''part 7'' of his playthrough to finally get one, and only because it was well lit and easily noticeable that time around. Similarly, he fails to notice that there are options for upgrading Sebastian's maximum sprint time, all the while cursing every time he has to take a breather after jogging for 3 seconds.
** In ''VideoGame/{{SOMA}}'', he frequently misses key interactions with objects on his first pass, causing him to spend excessive amounts of time solving even relatively simple puzzles. Partially [[JustifiedTrope justified]] due to the game developers making objects fit so well into the background that you often won't know you can click on something until the prompt appears.
** DoubleSubverted in the ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' livestream. Mark noticed Alphys [[spoiler:giving you the correct answers]] during Mettaton's quiz... but he and Tyler ignored it when Mettaton started trolling them.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption:
** ''VideoGame/{{Vanish}}'' for the longest time, though he did eventually beat it after nine episodes and [[{{Determinator}} hours of unrecorded gameplay]]. The experience still haunts him, two years later.
** ''VideoGame/SixtySeconds'' is rapidly becoming this. Six episodes in and he hasn't beaten the game once, even on Easy Mode.
* FlatWhat: Has a visual reaction upon finding the "Dancing Room" in ''The Darkest Words''.
* FlippingTheBird:
** Done in ''Vapour'' when he decides to RageQuit.
** Also in "F*ck This Game", where he dances with middle fingers out on the bottom left.
** "OCULUS RIFT FAIL" ends with him doing this with both hands after getting a [[GroinAttack vicious kick to the groin]].
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: This is somewhat the case with his brother Tom. While Tom acts more mature, Mark acts more silly. This can be seen in their VideoGame/OrcsMustDie 2 Let's Play. Also, Mark likes to tease Tom occasionally. In his VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Let's Play, Mark makes fun of furries... His brother writes a fairly famous furry webcomic.
* ForegoneConclusion: The ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5H7HqayshM fail compilation.]] The whole point of that video is to show a couple of different ways Markiplier lost in [[ThatOneLevel 4/20]] [[HarderThanHard Mode]].
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: Parodied in the ''Sonic.exe'' playthrough.
-->''Don't turn around; that thing standing directly behind you will just get pissed off.''
* FramingTheGuiltyParty: In his ''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'' videos with other Youtubers, [[LetsPlay/MangaMinx Minx]] is everyone's go-to ButtMonkey as they repeatedly accuse her of being the traitor. At one point, Mark leaps to his death and tells everyone Minx murdered him (on no basis whatsoever), who amusingly turned out to be the actual traitor. [[spoiler:Subverted, it was Spoon who was actually the traitor but from Mark's POV, it did look like it was Minx.]]
--> '''Mark:''' Minx didn't ''actually'' kill me, but boy you guys really went for it!
* FreezeFrameBonus: In his first ''Dungeon Nightmares'' playthrough, when a skeleton falls all of a sudden, there's a text reading: "OMG u so handsome" appearing over it. It's quite easy to miss if you freak out.
** Also a lot of compilation videos with in-video subtitles have - at times - small text appear for a split second, making it sometimes a rally for commenters on who can list all the "secret" gags first.
* FreudianSlip: From one of his [[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent Amnesia]] custom story videos:
--> '''Mark:''' My mouth is just watering at the thought of that giant juicy sausage! Can't wait for the flavour to blow in my mouth. '''*{{beat}}*''' ''Explode'' in my mouth. Wait, what am I talking about? Wait a minute!
* FriendToAllLivingThings: During his VideoGame/{{Firewatch}} playthrough. Mark claims that back when he was a child, he fancied himself as this; of course, that turned out not to be true.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: One of his VideoGame/{{Subnautica}} videos has a small ad appearing on the corner of screen that has Wilfred Warfstache doing a silent promotion for a game show called "Disc of Wealth". This [[{{Foreshadowing}} foreshadows]] the "Markiplier TV" skit in which Warfstache hosts said game show.
* FunWithSubtitles:
** His first video for VideoGame/HuniePop has his introduction subtitled in Japanese before aping the opening to Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion.
* GeekPhysique: [[AvertedTrope Nope]], he's got a healthy amount of muscle. Especially in his arms.
--> '''[[ShirtlessScene Mark]]''': ''Who the hell're you calling '''girrrly''', boy!?''
* GenreSavvy: Tends to quickly figure out how to avoid monsters in the games he plays. And usually can tell [[ThisIsGonnaSuck when things are going to get scary very fast]]. He's also able to pick out suspicious places and people very quickly in games, which is particularly amusing when [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight the non-suspicious person he off-handedly said was probably evil turns out to be evil after all]].
** In his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' he figures out pretty quickly some of the reveals, particularly [[spoiler:the detective main character having a DarkAndTroubledPast, the entire game being a shared dream, and the villain's plan being GrandTheftMe]].
*** In addition, during the final battle, he runs out of ammo and dies. As the game buffers for him to try again, he says, "It's a [[RuleOfThree rule of three]]; you're supposed to get three shots on him! That's, like, that's like the thing!"
** He pays attention to who has [[{{VideoGame/Misao}} Misao's]] body parts and is able to reach the good ending by [[spoiler:killing Mr. Sohta, who had a connection to her hands, instead of Tohma, who had no body parts.]]
** In his VideoGame/UntilDawn playthrough, [[spoiler:he correctly guesses that the psycho that made death traps was Josh within seconds of seeing him.]]
*** [[spoiler:Too bad he was GenreBlind when it came to [[SchmuckBait Ash]][[OffWithHisHead ley]]...]]
** In his ''VideoGame/Prey2017'' playthrough, he figures out the biggest plot twist of the game that [[spoiler:he was [[TomatoInTheMirror a Mimic]]]] half an hour in his ''first episode''.
* GilliganCut: In Five Nights at Freddy's: the Lost Episode, Mark does one of these.
-->'''Mark:''' I'll be fine, so long as something hasn't changed, I'm good.
-->'''*fade out, fade in*'''
-->'''Mark:''' [nervously] Oooookay, something changed.
* GirlfriendInCanada: Mark and Bob tease Wade in this way during Drunk Minecraft, tying in with his being the group's ButtMonkey. Subverted if you watch Wade's videos, where his girlfriend Molly is a presence in several of his [=LPs=], most prominently ''VideoGame/SevenDaysToDie'' and his own Minecraft videos.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Most of the time, Mark keeps the language PG-13 and tries not to outright curse if he can help it, with the exception of loud freak-out reactions. When he starts dropping {{Cluster F Bomb}}s repeatedly, he's really unnerved or angry.
** A couple of Super Mario Maker videos have him donate money to charity, with $100 added for every time he swears.
* GratuitousGerman: During his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'', he repeatedly says, "Scheiße" (crap/shit).
* GroinAttack: In "OCULUS RIFT FAIL", someone records Mark playing a Rift game while standing up and talking to his audience, only for another person to run up and give him an almighty kick to his nads. Mark is cut off mid-sentence, drops his controller, and promptly crumples to the ground in pain. [[FlippingTheBird And then flips them off.]]
* GushingAboutShowsYouLike: When he likes a game he is playing, he doesn't hesitate to compliment it and even explains his reasons for liking it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: H-L]]
* HamToHamCombat: He attempts to out-ham the Stanley Parable narrator, directing insults at him and generally refusing to go along with his place.
* HeelRealization: He has one at the end of ''VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse'', where he literally spends about a minute in total silence after finding out that [[spoiler:he was playing Ellen the Witch and he was fighting the ''real'' Viola.]]
* HellIsThatNoise: [[invoked]] SCP-173's music cue whenever he's in the vicinity. Somewhere.
--->"WHAT? WHY IS THERE IS THERE MUSIC?!"
* HeroicBSOD: When going through his first let's play of Slender: The Arrival, Markiplier was foiled by the proxy in chapter 3 just as he was about to escape via the mine-shaft elevator, sending him into a screaming mess. The next time, he manages to get to the elevator and up the shaft before this can happen again, and everything seems okay with the level effectively over. Then a bug in clipping issues when stepping off the elevator platform towards the exit sends the player character plummeting to their death. Mark is so utterly shocked and unprepared for what is quite possibly the most epic unintentional "screw you" destiny could ever give a gamer, that his commentary stops in it's tracks, as does his ability to even use facial expressions as he stares blankly at the screen for the next fifteen to twenty seconds in absolute silence, un-moving.
** His playthrough of ''VideoGame/MadFather'' featured a puzzle where he had to recreate a murder scene. He used the mini-chainsaw on the "terribly frightened" girl in the puzzle room, causing the girl to explode into bloody pieces. Mark sat, unmoving, with his mouth hanging open for a good five seconds.
** Both monsters from his ''VideoGame/{{Monstrum}}'' playthroughs (of the two he's seen so far, anyway) have caused him to FreakOut followed by a HeroicBSOD, due to ''how badly he was caught off guard.''
** During his playthrough of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'', when [[spoiler:the bite incident occurs after the fifth night]], Mark can do nothing but stare in open-mouthed horror for almost twenty seconds. Even after he recovers, he's still visibly disturbed for the rest of the video.
** When he accidentally gets Ashley killed in Until Dawn by forgetting that [[spoiler:a wendigo can mimic human voices]], he covers his eyes with his arms for a good twenty seconds before removing his headphones and walking offscreen to scream out his frustration. The saddest part is he remembers this vital information ''the second'' he screws up and can't go back.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Mark will occasionally point out moments that he FailedASpotCheck, or otherwise couldn't figure out a relatively obvious solution to a puzzle. The most notable of these moments was during a playthrough of ''{{VideoGame/Outlast}}'', where he spent a good few minutes wandering around, only to find that [[EpicFail he only needed to jump up a small gap]], which caused Mark to declare himself "the biggest idiot who ever lived." Even worse is that Mark added in a JumpCut to cut out even more pointless wandering around.
** Mark will even express disappointment in himself if he takes a while to figure out any puzzle, even if his method of figuring it out was actually quite clever or not the most straightforward way. Expect the comments section to express amazement when this happens (if the puzzle was particularly frustrating for a lot of people).
* HilarityEnsues: Every. Single. Drunk Minecraft. Especially when they have a serious objective in mind. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUPY75g177M This]] one in particular has them try to build Smokey the Bear. It turns out as... uh... just watch it.
--->'''Wade:''' Why do we try to build things? They NEVER turn out right!
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: During Mark's playthrough of A Late Night Drink, Mark spends 15-20 minutes searching for 4 keys in a library. He pulled out books for 20 whole minutes. One key was behind a candlestick NEXT to some books, but other than that, Mark needlessly pulled out books for 20 whole minutes. He eventually did recognize it as his own failure when he included it in one of his compilations, putting arrows pointing to the keys everytime one is in-frame to show how obviously he missed some of them (specifically the key next to the statue).
* HollywoodToneDeaf: [[https://youtu.be/epHaAsW0m2Q?t=5m25s His "attempt" at singing in this video]] fits the bill, especially considering Mark has shown to be capable of singing very well.
* HopeSpot: Mark very, ''very'' narrowly escapes being mauled by [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Freddy]] on his first night, and celebrates accordingly... before being immediately reminded he has four[[note]][[spoiler:actually six]][[/note]] more days to go.
-->'''Mark:''' "Oh no... ohnononono... [Freddy Appears] '''[[VerbalTic HI!]]''' OH GODDAMNIT! HOW'RE YA DOIN!? [6 A.M.] Did I make it...? I MADE IT! YEAH-HAH! [2nd Night] Ohgodnotagain...
** Oh, and then there was the infamous moment in ''VideoGame/{{Vanish}}'', where he got the keys, found the door, unlocked the door... and was killed before being able to leave.
** In part 6 of ''Amnesia: Killings in Aldstadt'', Mark is tormented by a [[BrokenRecord neverending loop]] of the shop theme from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' produced by a soundtrack bug, and tries to end it all by [[DrivenToSuicide repeatedly jumping off a tall balcony]]. When he goes up the stairs to do it again, the loop stops... '''only to start all over again'''.
* HypocriticalHumor: In one of the VideoGame/GarrysMod horror maps Mark ran with Yamimash, he takes a second to good-naturedly mock a "bananus buttsex" poster, saying "We'll stick with our highbrow humor." He then turns on noclip and [[ToiletHumor proceeds to fart his way across the map]].
* IdiotBall: ''Alien: Isolation'' gives the player a tool to track the motion of enemies: the aptly-named "motion tracker". Despite this, multiple times in Markiplier's playthrough (especially in the final third of the game) he'll forget about this '''crucial gameplay tool''' and instead cower in fear in a dark corner calling out, "Is someone there?!" or "Where did you go?!" to the [=NPCs=]. While it's true that an enemy can hear the tracker's beeping, and that might have influenced his decision to not use it, testing it out would have revealed they can only hear it if you're close enough to give them a rectal exam, not fifteen feet away.
* IdiotHero: [[HeroicSelfDeprecation At least as far as he's concerned]].
* IHatePastMe: In part 17 of "Afraid of Monsters" Mark is forced to backtrack through an area he had already went through. He's forced to fight several monsters he had originally run past and wonders why he left so many. "Damn you, past me!"
* {{Improv}}: For his final ''VideoGame/MadFather'', he uses a real cough for a piece of dialogue.
* InelegantBlubbering: His first run-in with SCP-106, aka "Radical Larry" resulted in this.
** Now with subtitles, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_GmUpy6ArA The Impossible Lets Play: Hot Sauce Challenge]].
%%** If used in fear out of anything such as an EldritchAbomination, HilarityEnsues.
* InsistentTerminology: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] during his playthrough of Huniecam Studio in order to maintain his kid friendly atmosphere. Mark repeatedly insists that the girls in the game are filming Let's Play videos, that they are going to the photo studio to make thumbnails for their Let's Plays, and that they go to the sleazy motel to search for cash under the furniture. Naturally, everything you see from the game itself makes it immediately clear what's really going on.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: A lot of his lines tend to be very odd, but they do make sense, even [[MindScrew this]] [[BodyHorror one:]]
-->'''Markiplier''': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdYqOsaNT-s&feature=youtu.be&t=5m18s "The head of my dead child is pinned to my ass!"]]
-->'''Markiplier''': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBSfikrbLV4&feature=youtu.be&t=4m40s "At least it's in my ass, it can't kill me if it's in my ass!"]]
* JumpCut: A RunningGag whenever he takes too long in tedious grinding or if he’s screwed something up.
* JumpScare: He falls victim to many in horror games. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=i98eb1VXy4Y#t=188s And manages to pull one on us nicely.]]
** This video of ''Slender: The Nine Pages'' has Mark encounter [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M-dO7_UKhY&t=4m58s an incredibly frightening jump scare]] that greatly terrified Mark so much, it looked like it could have given him a heart attack.
** Deconstructed [[ShownTheirWork quite well]] in "Are Jumpscares Scary?"... [[spoiler:[[DeconReconSwitch Or]] [[CatScare not]].]]
** At the start of the ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm0QPWVo29U Hotel Remorse]]'' video, Mark's creepy-as-all-hell Woody mask pops up all close to the camera right out of nowhere accompanied by a scream.
* KubrickStare: Invoked for two minutes and thirteen seconds in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oC0xVc7Mso8 Hello Kitty Online]] episode. It's not a still photo.
* KillItWithFire: Has this reaction to one of the [[spoiler:alien's]] body parts [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0juVK_vz-H0&t=3m making noises]] in ''VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013''.
** Similarly during his OFF playthrough, when a head starts emerging from the mouth of a Pastel Burnt.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' and ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation'', he ''loves'' using the flamethrower on certain enemies. Even though he's overjoyed to have this weapon on hand, he quickly learns to use it in a more controlled manner.
* LargeHam: One of the appeals of watching his Let’s Plays are his hilariously exaggerated reactions to everything. Especially when he does his "[[Franchise/DeadSpace Isaac Clarke]] voice".
* LaserGuidedKarma: During Mark and Bob's VideoGame/{{Rust}} playthrough, Mark killed a guy who offered to help break into a building. Mark killed him the moment he turned his back on him and it turned out that he didn't have anything of value. Later on that same player came back packing a pistol and killed Bob. [[DidntThinkThisThrough The fact that they built their home right next]] [[IdiotBall to the house they were breaking into didn't help.]]
* LaughingMad: [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QopD-ap3F28 The Markiplier Land]] episode of Drunk Minecraft, where the gang (or Mark and Wade at least) are at the end of a session and a lot drunker than normal. Mark dissolves into fits of laughter half a dozen times, to the confusion of his friends, with the first one lasting almost two minutes straight.
--->'''Bob:''' What's going on with Mark?\\
'''Wade:''' I don't know. He broke.
%%** At the end of his VideoGame/DeadSpace2 playthrough. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbQ-GkRGXmQ It even got a Highlight.]]
* LetsSeeYouDoBetter: While he was playing ''VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013'''s new mode ([[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Meet The Medic]]) on the birthday stream, and after finally beating it, Wade was laughing in the background at Mark taking as long as he did and almost failing. Cue an angry Mark making Wade play until he either won or failed, while he was sitting in the background with a rather funny (but angry) expression.
** While playing ''Skate 3'', Bob criticized Mark for not doing enough funny stuff. Mark hands the controller over and tells Bob to do it, if he thinks he can be funnier. The very next thing Bob does is [[https://youtu.be/FRimGHRBU64?t=2m22s run his skater into a pole]] [[GroinAttack groin-first]], which makes Mark crack up.
* LuckBasedMission: He states that he's not a fan of these in his ''Five Nights At Freddy's'' 4-20 mode video, since success in a game should be dependent on a player's skill. Note that in this specific instance, he's attempting an nigh-impossible challenge and has died to Freddy dozens and dozens of times due to random chance ''despite playing as perfectly as possible''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: M-R]]
* MadnessMantra: In his penultimate Vanish video, Mark undergoes a major SanitySlippage from anger and desperation, repeating phrases over and over again, pleading with the game to just let him win.
* {{Malaproper}}: "Amm-ro" for "ammo," "dablit" or "dablage" for "dammit[=/=]damage" respectively.
** After a particularly hearty laugh in a ''Skate 3'' video, his lungs hurt, and he says he thinks he "tore up his areola a little". The word he's looking for is ''alveoli''.
* ManipulativeBastard: Played for laughs, but Mark's ''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'' videos with other Youtubers show that he's actually pretty good at plotting to get the others to kill each other ([[ItAmusedMe even if he's not actually the traitor that round]]) when he's not too busy screwing around.
* ManlyTears: Mark has occasionally choked up on camera, especially during emotional moments in certain video games, or [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when talking about how honored he is by his fans]]. He’s also seen trying to hold back tears while talking about his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_cxoZLPyR0 friend's death.]] Contrary to what Mark hilariously insists, it doesn't take away from his manliness one bit.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: When he plays as himself in a comedy sketch, he tends to play himself as an arrogant passive-aggressive jerk, which is the complete opposite of [[NiceGuy the kind of person he really is]].
* MilesGloriosus: According to his boasts, Markiplier will gloriously kick the butt of any monster he encounters. [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl Just don't get him anywhere near the actual monsters]].
* MisplacedNationalism: In his ''Ampu-Tea'' video, Mark satirized the negative stereotypes that the British have of Americans--for example, claiming "Britain is a ''whole country''! I know this!" Unfortunately, some of the British viewers took Mark at face value and [[DudeNotFunny reacted accordingly]]. Many even used his antics as an excuse to spew hateful comments--including labeling all of America as {{Eagleland}} Flavor #2.
* MistakenForForeigner: While reading viewer comments, he [[https://youtu.be/R6EHLR6q-tM?t=4m48s came across one]] which read "Mark! Are you going to America soon?" and was completely baffled. He had been born in Hawaii and grew up in Cincinnati.
* MixedAncestry: His mother is Korean and his father is German, explaining his surname and his Asian looks.
* MonsterClown: ''World's Quietest Let's Play 2 Animated'' has Mark eaten by one of these. then finds himself surrounded by clown versions of Bob, Wade, [[LetsPlay/{{Jacksepticeye}} Jack]], [[LetsPlay/PewDiePie Pewds]], and the LetsPlay/GameGrumps.
* MotorMouth: As a natural reaction when pants-shittingly terrified, Mark will tend to babble anything that comes to mind. The best example of this is during his VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3 playthrough, he talks with the animatronic that's about to kill him like he's having a tea party.
--> "Hey, buddy! How’s it going? You wanna- you wanna get a noise? Like, over there? Like over ''there''. There’s a bunch of noises. Like, noisy noises… I heard the noisest noise I ever heard over in room 10… Is that a room, room 10? You might wanna check out room 10, because room 10, whew, boy lemme tell you all the stuff that’s in room 10…"
* MundaneMadeAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSStABDWVWU "Markiplier in Slow Motion"]], in which Mark manages to use {{overcrank}} to make the tasks of burning paper, spinning a bag of bread, and jumping on a couch all look equally badass.
** His Best Fiends trailer to promote the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTVgHSSJado charity.]] Yes, it was unnecessarily over the top.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** Mark had a heartbreaking case after playing ''Ripest of Fears", a fangame dedicated to him. He realized that he's been trying so hard to get more subscribers that he's been neglecting the fans he already has. He promised to go back to how he used to be, and was desperately holding back tears at the end of the video.
** He has an in-game example for ''VideoGame/MadFather'' when he was setting up the final murder scene in the memory section. He playfully swung his mini chainsaw at the female statue only to successfully kill her. Obviously, he didn't realize this was part of the game and was just messing around.
** Another in-game example is when he played ''VideoGame/CalmTime''. He admitted that he just finished Drunk Minecraft and wasn't prepared for such a dark game. He especially felt bad for being forced to kill the only kid there.
** He slowly starts thinking this during his playthrough of ''VideoGame/{{Off}}''. After seeing the purified zones, he starts wondering what he's really doing. [[spoiler:Meeting the Judge after defeating Japhet, having to kill the helpless Burnt in the subway tunnel, and being forced to kill Hugo eventually make him realize that he's done '''''bad'''''...]]
** During his playthrough of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'', he expresses horror over killing Mia [[spoiler:the first time.]]
--> "I was gonna run for it! I didn't want to be a part of this!"
* NeverLiveItDown:[[invoked]] The fact that he blew up Detroit for cake is becoming this in his Will You Press The Button series.
* NeverMyFault: One of the running gags of Drunk Minecraft is Mark's utter refusal to accept blame for anything that goes wrong during play, preferring to blame [[ButtMonkey Wade]] for everything. Taken to silly extremes in [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PL4E8CE9E89554302E&v=B0mTulbBtHI this]] episode, were Mark [[CrowningMomentOfFunny accidently spills his drink on his keyboard]], breaking it, and spends the rest of the episode running in and out trying to get a new one. An episode later, he's blaming it on Wade.
** Lampshaded by [[CaptainSparklez Jordan]] on his guest appearance when he's told of this:
---> Jordan: So that's your excuse?
---> Mark: No! It's not my excuse!
* TheNicknamer: Markiplier will, on occasion, randomly nickname characters in video games things like "Billy" (that's the name given to [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-173]] as well as to the Scavenger Bots in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace3'') if he doesn't trust the character (as seen in his play-through of VideoGame/{{Penumbra}} and [[NightmareHouse Nightmare House 2]] as well as a sewer pipe he called "Jerry" in an ''Amnesia'' Mod.
** The Brute from ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' was dubbed "Mooseman" by Markiplier, mostly due to [[HellIsThatNoise the sound he makes]].
** [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys "It's just not a party without my good friend]], Mr. BunBun. Or Mr. Happy Duck. Mr. Quacky Smack."
** He also nicknamed the robots in the Vehicle Bay in ''Subnautica'' Jeffrey, Billy, Marshall, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick Samwise]].
* NoIndoorVoice: He can get quite shouty, to say the least.
* NoJustNoReaction:
** During his Outlast: Whistleblower playthrough, Mark reads the subtitle "childhood, sexual, reptile imagery" in reference to weird dreams a patient is having. He starts asking what that is and seems to start asking for someone to make fanart of it, but he stops himself at the words "draw some f-" and says, "No, no. God", instead.
** Whenever a game he's playing has RapeAsDrama implications, he either has this reaction, says something along the lines of "Not going to touch that with a X ft pole", or just tries to ignore it completely.
** In [[https://youtu.be/xsaY4x8UKBE?t=2m26s Happy Wheels Highlights #67]], he has this reaction upon seeing Tiny Box Tim with a massive boner.
** During his playthrough of ''Phobia'', he keeps repeating "No" when someone, or something, keeps knocking on his bedroom door. Obviously, he knew something was wrong and he really didn't want to open the door. There's even an animation of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9l59hARAhM scene]].
* NoodleIncident: Mark mentions one to introduce his alcohol of choice while playing ''Five Nights at Fuckboy's''. Said alcohol of choice is the 'delicious cinnamon whisky that got [Mark], Bob, Wade, Jack and Yamimash in trouble in Boston at PAX East.' Apparently, none of them will ever tell what actually happened, although Mark says not too much trouble.
* NoSell: ''World's Quietest Let's Play 2 Animated'' has Mark's sword breaking on Little Johnny's head despite having the objective to kill him in a round of ''Happy Wheels ''.
* NothingIsScarier: Markiplier often praises game developers for making use of this and gets easily freaked out from a games suspense and atmosphere when this trope is successfully implemented.
** His collaboration with Yamimash on the Abandoned Metro Garry's Mod map shows that he has little tolerance for games and maps which seem like they're building suspense and atmosphere, but then [[AntiClimax don't do anything with it]].
** Mark's produced this trope by himself in some cases, like the "Don't blink" and "Don't move" videos. Or in the credits of some games, like "Hotel Remorse".
* OhCrap: A couple in-game reactions:
** In his play-through of ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'', he was not happy to encounter a second Bloater.
** Encountering Chris Walker in ''Outlast: The Whistleblower''. The character was so impactful that he somehow remembered his name.
** Just about anytime a monster from {{Vanish}} appears. Usually, though, he gets upset with them.
** The instant he realizes that ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' has more than five nights, his glee at "beating" the game vanishes.
** One out-of-game example is when he dropped his iPad in a tub of water. Yes, he kind of overdid the reaction, but he was ''very'' upset that it happened.
** In Part 13 of ''VideoGame/SCPContainmentBreach'', when he spends several minutes admiring a new part of the map he's just discovered.
--> '''Mark''': What the hell is... What the hell is this? What ''is'' this? There's a camera... Hi! And it's frickin' following me and I hear one-
---> *Gas suddenly starts getting pumped into the room en masse*
--> '''Mark''': Ah! Aw crap, what the- what- what is this?
---> *Mark finds a piece of paper revealing that the room he's in belongs to [[KillAllHumans SCP]]-[[CompleteImmortality 682]].*
--> '''Mark''': ''Oh no!'' *starts running*
---> *SCP-682 [[Main/FromBadToWorse roars from behind a wall]]*
** Witnessing [[spoiler:The Bite Incident]] in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4''. He suddenly realizing something is ''horribly wrong'' [[spoiler:when the BigBrotherBully decides to put the main character's head in Fredbear's mouth]] and is rendered speechless [[spoiler:when it clamps down]].
** He had multiple ones in {{Monstrum}}, though he had a very visual one when encountering the cameras for the first time:
--> *camera activates alarm*
--> '''Mark:''' Roar? *realizes that the monster will follow the noise* OH CRAP!
** During his playthrough of a demo title called HUMAN, Mark's usual playful and sarcastic demeanor goes right out the window [[spoiler: when he realizes that the excessively loud footsteps he was hearing throughout the game were actually [[RightBehindMe a second set of footsteps closely following his]]. Even worse, rapidly turning around [[NothingIsScarier reveals nothing else in the room with him]].]] For the next few minutes, Mark is almost as deeply unsettled as when he played Dreadhalls on the Oculus Rift.
* OrphanedSeries: His [[Videogame/DementiumTheWard Dementium II]] play through. Despite claiming that he was enjoying the game the series abruptly ended at part 4. And since that was uploaded back in December of 2013 it looks like Markiplier isn't interested in finishing it.
** His ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' with Wade as well. Latest video was uploaded on Oct 7, 2014... [[SubvertedTrope or not]]. It was just on an ''incredibly'' long hiatus, as the newest episode was released on May 18, 2015. Also semi-PlayedStraight, as it's a reboot with Wade as well as Tyler now.
** His long series, ''Drunk Minecraft'', is now on permanent hiatus as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPjr8sT9t8E Mark reveals that he's had to go to the hospital]] because of drinking alcohol[[note]]his body can't process alcohol properly as he's stated numerous times.[[/note]]
* OutOfCharacterAlert: An odd example happens in Mark's playthrough of the fangame ''A New Home'', as he repeatedly points out that the representation of him in the game isn't like him at all (being an arrogant {{Jerkass}} who neglects his fans and friends, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking prefers salad over meat]]). [[spoiler:He soon figures out that it's someone pulling a GrandTheftMe similar to ''VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse'', and that the real Mark is the white-cloaked being chasing him.]]
%%* {{Overcrank}}: Utilised in the videos [["Markiplier in Slow Motion"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQaYBKPgr4w Slow Mo Dance | Markiplier & TomSka]].
* OverlyLongGag: Mark while playing Neverending Nightmares on medicine for an ear infection.
-->''"You're not gonna get me this time. I'm ready for ya! I'm ready for ya, creepy painting of a little girl! I'm ready for ya, Slenderman in the distance over there! I'm ready for ya,... crop... symbol of Ohio! I'm ready for ya, screamin' baby! I'm ready for ya, town about to be consumed by weather! I'm ready for ya, picture of a soldier! I'm ready for ya, picture of crows fly- *bird flies by window* uhhhh. I wasn't ready for ya, vulture."''
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: When he plays "BWAK" he describes it as "a horror chicken game unlike any other" and jokingly says he knows there have been a lot.
%%* PainfulBodyWaxing: In his waxing challenge video. Funny thing is, he actually ''enjoyed it''.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord: Coined in the finale of HuniePop - Resipriciousness: "A strong urge to engage in coitus with with anime women."
* PowerUpLetDown: During his second run of ''{{VideoGame/Subnautica}}'' he was thrilled when he finally was able to ([[NoFairCheating legitimately]]) earn the Prawn MiniMecha... only to climb in and realize that the suit on it's own has no special abilities (other than being able to survive massive sea depths).
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: The animated "MAGICAL MISCHIEF (with chica!)" turns what was originally just a normal comment about ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' into one of these.
--> '''Markiplier''': By the way, death is permanent and whatnot. ''(attacks the monster and kills it)''
* PreciousPuppies: Mark is very much a dog person, as multiple videos illustrate. In some videos he plays with his mom's and brother's dogs, and in November 2015 he got one named Chica. Plenty of vlogs feature Mark fawning over her.
* ProperlyParanoid: Because he has played so much ''Amnesia'', he has become terrified of mannequins. Even if they're inanimate, he freaks out and takes off their heads.
** He gets ''really'' freaked out he first meets the [[VideoGame/AlienIsolation Working Joes]]. The first thing he does is spastically shooting at it. [[spoiler:He was right to be scared of them.]]
** During the first night of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'', Markiplier hears the word "golden" in the Phone Guy's introduction and immediately latches onto it. [[spoiler:With good reason, because Golden Freddy ''is'' in this game, and is more of threat than ever.]]
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in his recent playthrough of ''VideoGame/{{SOMA}}'', when he has to make the choice [[spoiler:of whether he should kill or spare the WAU.]] He ultimately makes the decision not to go through with it, based on his interpretation of Ross - that of a sinister stalker with an unknown agenda. Apparently, the many humans who had either been [[YourHeadAsplode killed]] or [[AndIMustScream preserved]] by the WAU, along with its progressive destruction of the Earth's remaining ecosystems, [[StupidGood were not significant factors against the question of preserving its life.]]
* PyrrhicVictory: One of the ''Drunk Minecraft'' episodes revolves around Mark, Bob, Wade, and Zombiemold attempting to make TNT cannons... except the first three have no clue how to and decide to improvise. The video ends when Mark finally manages to land a shot on Zombie's fortress, but the sheer amount of explosives he used blew away most of what he built.
-->'''Mark:''' I blow up my own shit all the time, I don't care about that, but I got ya. I got ya! I GOT YA! Woooo!
* TheQuietOne: Tyler as seen in the ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' videos isn't particularly chatty in comparison to Mark and Wade. As a result they nickname him "One Word Tyler" and "Stone Face Tyler". His later appearances in Mark’s videos avert this trope, since he’s either playing the StraightMan to Mark’s goofy antics or partaking in the same sense of humour.
* RageQuit: He does this at the end of ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9-JvZ3fibY Hell Was Here]]'', when he [[ObviousBeta immediately dies upon spawning in an empty room]].
** He also does this towards the end of "The Hat Man". He was getting into the game at first, but after the Hat Man started cornering him, he got angry when he was forced to replay the whole game again. It was even worse when he had another YankTheDogsChain moment when the Hat Man got him at the last stage.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zC4lIwUnJWs I Am Bread]] exasperated him so much that he ''lost his voice and smashed a hole in his controller'', followed by vowing to never play the game ever again. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oEbp0U19CA This wasn't a vow that he kept for very long.]]
** His LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' [[spoiler:when he inadvertently led Ashley to her death]]. However, it's more of a "Rage Restart" than a RageQuit.
*** He does another after [[spoiler:failing to save Mike]], restarting the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 via SoftReset.
* RapidFireNo:
** One time in his playthrough of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'', while wearing the Freddy helmet, hoping that an animatronic won't get him, he rattles off 25 "no"'s in rapid succession. [[JumpScare Then Chica appears.]] Played for humor in the ''FNAF'' reaction compilation, by putting the caption "YES" next to Chica.
** Also shows up in his playthrough of OFF, when fighting the Pastel Burnt and an [[https://youtu.be/HJ84nb7DFII?t=7m Elsen Head peeks out of the Burnt's Mouth.]]
** In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwkEPehMcS4 ice bath challenge]] after Mark accidentally drops his [=iPad=] into the water.
** At the end of his [[ThirteenIsUnlucky thirteenth video]] of his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' [[spoiler:after inadvertently leading Ashley to her death]].
* ARareSentence: Drunk Minecraft in general tends to produce these. Some gems include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PML1MFplyM&t=21m "This waterfall doesn't touch the penis!"]], "I'm being molested by an albino spider", and "Get your head out of my thong."
** Another Minecraft-related example is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3qmCXB2qx_U "I just turned our diamonds into pork chops!!!"]]
** In part six of his ''Grey'' playthrough, he says "I shouldn't have wasted so much ammo shooting those babies. That's something I never thought I'd say ever in my life."
** SCALE gives us [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfFhQ8K-2pM "Oh God I fell through the penis!"]]
** "[[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac I'm]] crying all the piles of poop open!"
** "Stop fingering my circle!" shows up a few times in his playthrough of VideoGame/{{OFF}}.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDIB-XKHWfs&t=7m48s Gmod Sandbox]] gives us this gem:
-->'''Mark:''' What if I put thrusters on a baby?\\
''({{Beat}})''\\
'''Mark (laughing):''' That's a question that everyone should ask themselves...\\
'''LetsPlay/JackSepticEye:''' [[LampshadeHanging That is something I never thought anyone would ever say!]]
** "[[https://youtu.be/R2fOg8VssEE?t=414 I just... beat a blood baby to death with a hammer!]] [[LampshadeHanging I can't believe I said those words!]]"
** "[[https://youtu.be/U7RcoUFY33w?t=645 You know, there are certain things you don't expect to exclaim at the top of your lungs, so that your neighbours question you even more than they have in the past. But I don't give a fuck. I'M JERKIN' OFF MAH CAR!]]"
* RealityIsUnrealistic: Markiplier failed the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vnE7PP5zYk Markiplier quiz]], somehow.
* RealMenEatMeat: Mark gets considerably offended when he reads a letter of resignation in ''Amnesia: Rain" where, among other things, the maid criticizes him for being stupid because "[[StrawVegetarian isn't the fact that you eat animals and I don't proof enough?]]". He spends a few minutes afterwards gushing about how good meat tastes.
* RealMenWearPink: His Warfstache logo is pink, he actually enjoyed his waxing challenge, takes pole dancing lessons, and is actually an easy crier when it comes to how much he loves his fans and fan community. When he dyed his hair pink as a result of a livestream goal, he liked it enough to keep it and recolor it into a softer shade of cotton candy pink. It borders on InTouchWithHisFeminineSide, honestly.
* {{Retirony}}: Discussed in Foreign Creature.
-->'''Mark'''[[note]]about the security guard that the titular creature was about to kill[[/note]]: Let me guess, it's your last day of retirement[[note]] he meant last day ''before'' retirement[[/note]], you don't have a care in the world, do ya?
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: [[https://youtu.be/hEXBcXhw2RY Try Not To Laugh #3]] has Mark cracking up over someone reading all the various misspelled ways people have asked pregnancy related questions.
* RunningGag:
** “Poof! :3” occurs mostly in the compilations as a sound effect.
** “Hating” Wade, especially in Drunk Minecraft and Prop Hunt.
%%** "Pressing B to Blow" is rapidly turning into this.
** In his ''Besiege'' videos he repeatedly insists the death machines are in fact [[BlatantLies farming equipment]].
%%** This one is shared with Bob: Derrick. "HOW DARE YOU?!"
** His SelfDeprecation for dropping out of college to pursue [=YouTube=]. "I could have been an engineer..."
** Throughout his ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' playthrough he makes jokes about "partying like porn stars", based off an early line from Josh. Also, mispronouncing "wendigo".
** He's [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Purple Guy]]. He first states it in one of his playthrough videos ("Maybe I'm Purple Guy!"), in the opening for [[WebVideo/GameTheoryWebShow Game Theory's]] 'Why FNAF Will Never End' video he appears out of the locked box stating "It was me!", and his title card in 'Warfstache Interviews Markiplier' video lists his occupation as 'Purple Guy'.
** Mentioning cranberries when reading dialogue spoken by old people.
** Bear traps, first encountered in Limbo, then in Dead By Daylight, and now they're all over the place in Lethe. And he just keeps stepping in them.
** After he quit his ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' playthrough due to an unruly fanbase, any mentions of the game will have Mark react with some kind of horror.
** When he returns to the aforementioned game in a live stream format, he humorously lampshades that they [[GodwinsLaw mention Hitler in nearly every stream of the game.]]
** While playing ''Subnautica'', he constantly forgets to pay attention to the Oxygen meter. The game has a verbal Low Oxygen warning, and he still misses it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: S-V]]
* SanitySlippage: After a tough time in the final boss fight of ''Dead Space 2'', he goes LaughingMad and fills his inventory with nothing but [[MoreDakka Pulse Rifle]] ammo and health kits, and it's a little bit like watching SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker do a Let's Play.
** His entire ''Surgeon Simulator 2013'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxOU6G8zvXQ video]] is an 11-minutes plus epitome of this trope as he plays an increasingly unhinged doctor.
** Throughout the first play in the [[RageQuit final]] video of ''Vanish'', Mark becomes increasingly frazzled and panicked.
** In a Happy Wheels montage where he played ONE Dark Souls based level, he slowly slipped into this. And he was well aware of this.
--->"Do you think - in the future - when I'm at my insanity hearing, that they'll use this as evidence that I really did lose my mind?"
** ''I Am Bread'' makes Mark so angry with the controls/the physics/himself/life in general that he just breaks down and weeps. No big surprise that it was made by the same people behind ''Surgeon Simulator 2013''.
** He undergoes another during his playthrough of VideoGame/PresentableLiberty- except it [[TearJerker isn't]] [[PlayerPunch played]] [[NightmareFuel for]] [[DespairEventHorizon laughs]] [[BreakTheCutie at all]].
* TheScrappy: In-universe. He isn't a fan of [[VideoGame/{{Off}} Zacharie]], which is amusing considering his [[EnsembleDarkhorse reputation in the fanbase]].
** Whenever he plays Happy Wheels, he makes it an objective to kill Little Johnny.
** He is '''not''' a fan of [[spoiler:[[{{VideoGame/Misao}} Sohta]]. When he found out what Sohta [[BreakTheCutie did to Misao]], he had immense hatred for the guy and even when learning how much his life sucked due to so much bullying for his appearance and childhood, Mark was ''still'' hateful towards Sohta. When the game reveals that Aki forgives Sohta for what he's done, Mark flat out states that Sohta cannot be forgiven that easily for what he did]].
** He doesn't seem to be fond of [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Phone Guy]], sighing and groaning when Phone Guy starts in with his normal "Hello, hello?" and even theorizing that he might be the killer during ''2''.
** In ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'', he doesn't seem to like Mike or Josh very much. The former he dislikes for being a JerkJock, while the latter he dislikes for his creepy behavior. When Dr. Hill asks him which one he dislikes more in one of the therapy sessions, he has to take a moment to think it through. Both wound up [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescued from his Scrappy heap]] - eventually he warmed up to Mike because of him [[HeroesLoveDogs befriending a wolf]], and while his hatred of Josh only increased [[spoiler:after the reveal that he's the psycho making death traps]], one of his late segments [[spoiler:shown ThroughTheEyesOfMadness]] started Mark toward calling Josh's schtick retrospectively one of the coolest things in the game.
* TheScream: Becoming cornered or trapped by SCP-173. In one playthrough, SCP-173 hops through an office window rather then [[ThereWasADoor use the door]] as expected...
-->'''Mark:''' No! NO! '''NOOOOO--AAAAAUUURRGHG''' ''(neck snap)''
** And in another, Mark [[FaceDeathWithDignity faces it down]] as his eye meter depletes to zero...
--->'''Mark:''' '''[[TakingYouWithMe I'm taking you with me!]]''' KEEP LOOKING AT ME! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-- ''(neck snap)''
** In Part 8, Mark ''finally'' gets the jump on 173 via surveillance cam, then does an end run around it. (Or does he?)
--->'''Mark''': ''Imma getcha. Imma getcha. Imma getcha! I SEE YA! I SEE YA! I SEE YA!'' Oooohh yeah, like a boss! ''(neck snap)''
** Part 10, "Worst Scare Ever", is so named for 173 zipping right in front of Mark, who grips in forehead in pain from so much screaming. Finally, he just saunters up to it.
--->'''Mark:''' ''(snarls angrily)'' HI!♥\\
''*pokes statue*''\\
'''Mark:''' 'SCUSE ME!\\
''*173 doesn't budge*''\\
'''Mark:''' Fine, kill me! ''(neck snap)''
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Virtually every horror Lets Play. Especially funny if he had previously been boasting his toughness Quite a few videos, particularly Drunk Minecrafts, have him screaming in fury as well.
* ScrewDestiny: Even though Mark knew that the point of ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' is to live with the choices made, he snapped when [[spoiler:he accidentally got Ashley killed, and decided to play the entire game over again, just to give all the characters a satisfying ending]].
* ScrewYourself: Admits in his fifth "Reading Your Comments" video that he'd like to go to Mars with his sole company being an OppositeSexClone.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: In his ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' playthrough. [[spoiler:As soon as Ashley gets killed, Mark's response after he calms down is to vow to play ''the entire game'' over again so that everyone is still alive.]]
* ShaggyDogStory: His ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' antics with Wade and LetsPlay/JackSepticEye. They spend an entire video trying to get into a military base and steal jets. Jack and Wade succeed multiple times, but Mark keeps getting killed in silly ways. Until he finally manages to steal one... and promptly crashes it in a pile of crates without even managing to get it to fly because he doesn't know how to turn the thing. Goes to full ShootTheShaggyDog levels in the following video, where he opts to keep the helicopter they got to the base with rather than try again, only to go down in flames to a badly aimed missile of Jack's.
* ShareTheMalePain: Can't go through a ''VideoGame/HappyWheels'' highlight video without a character being shot in the crotch and Mark screaming "Oh, my dick!"
** While playing the Gluskin section of ''Outlast: Whistleblower'', he moved uncomfortably around his chair while watching Gluskin castrated his other victims.
** When Lisa of ''Whack the Creeps'' kicks one of the titular creeps in the nads with a blade sticking out the front of her shoe, Mark goes InstantSoprano for about a second.
* ShipperOnDeck: He's a huge fan of [[VideoGame/UntilDawn Ashley/Chris]]. How much? When he [[spoiler:gets one of them killed in a pretty stupid manner (he forgot that wendigos can impersonate voices)]] he breaks down and resolves to play the game over just so they can have their happy ending.
* ShmuckBait: The thumbnail for Penis Cloner displays an image of Mark with a repulsed look, and says "DON'T CLICK". Naturally, no one listened; [[StreisandEffect it became one of his most viewed videos from 2013]].
** He falls for one himself in ''VideoGame/TheImpossibleQuiz Book''. One of the choices for Question 26 is "Please Don't Press This"; he presses it anyway, and ends up [[spoiler:resetting the entire game]].
** Happens again in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' when he's doing the expert 100 Mario challenge. He sees a pit filled with powerups, and though suspicious, decides to get them. He ends up trapped in the pit.
* ShoutOut: Mark occasionally quotes stand-up comedian Creator/BrianRegan in his videos. He also uses "Alright, alright, alriiiight" from comedian Kevin Hart.
** In Happy Wheels Highlights #25 Mark says "Mycaruba," a catchphrase/running gag that was started by the ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' (Mark is friends with the members of the GG channel). He also occasionally asks "Barry" to edit his video while in-game.
** During a play-through of ''Phobia 1.5'', he uses a fast-forward cut while singing "Escape From the City" from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''.
** He'll occasionally use [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Mr. Garrison's]] old catch phrase "You go to hell! You go to hell and you die!"
** During his playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'', he drops a ceiling on an enemy while screaming "[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Take this! My love, my hate, and all of my sorrow]]!" and is left wondering, [[Film/{{Se7en}} What's in the box?"]].
*** In one of his The Consequence [=DLC=] videos, he sings a section of [[EpicRapBattlesOfHistory Isaac Newton versus Bill Nye]]
** In his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'', he references the SigningOffCatchphrase for ''WebVideo/GameTheoryWebShow''. His [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNTBC7Qe-R0 compilation video]] with that scene even shows a picture of its host [=MatPat=].
** While playing ''VideoGame/RoadRedemption'', Mark quotes Drax the Destroyer from ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'': ''"Nothing goes over my head! My reflexes are too quick!"''
** During his playthrough of ''Videogame/SuperHot'', Mark references the bridge keeper's questions from ''Main/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''.
-->'''Mark''' ''(to a red enemy)'': Okay sir, I'm gonna ask you a few questions before I kill you. What is your name? What is your quest? What is your favorite color? ''Blue?!'' You're red! *''kills the enemy''*
** In "Chicken Walk", he names his baby chicks "Billy" and "[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen]]". [[note]]He was number one![[/note]]
** During ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuyGaiden'':
-->'''Mark''': I gotta get to the next save point. ''[[Film/ForrestGump I gotta find Bubba!]]''
** During the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZgnZSmbYn0 Five Nights at Freddy's 4 - Part 5]] video this text pops up:
-->''My heart was beating out of my chest. [[Music/{{Eminem}} Palms are sweaty. Knees weak. Arms are heavy]].
** In his "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34BjxhA1pJ0 Popcorn]]" sketch, he tries to make a sandwich in a bizarre kind of way ala WebVideo/HowToBasic. Makes it funnier Mr. Basic himself commented on the video, saying "Have you seen Chef?".
* ShownTheirWork: Praise has been given to "Are Jumpscares Scary?" for really living up to its title, by producing a haunting and unnerving atmosphere that most games produce before dropping the jumpscare... [[spoiler:although Mark's video ends on a CatScare.]]
* SigningOffCatchPhrase: "Thank you all so much for watching. Click the annotations for more videos that I've done. And as always, I will see you in the next video. Bye-bye!"
* SkewedPriorities: When he first plays ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'', the loading screen reveals that he is receiving even less money than last time, and he really starts yelling, apparently more worried about that than survival.
* SkywardScream: In ''VideoGame/UntilDawn Animated,'' after he [[spoiler:gets Ashley killed,]] he goes to [[Disney/TheLionKing Pride Rock]] and lets a couple of them out.
%%* SlasherSmile: One of his running gags. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxLFBEB0USA Case in point.]]
* SmiteMeOMightySmiter!: The Latin's Wrath episode of Drunk Minecraft. At one point Mark jumps on top of the house to taunt Latin (the moderator of the Minecraft server).
--> ''Mark'': Latin, bring it on! Bring it OONNN! [[TooDumbToLive EVERYBODY WANTS TO BONE YOUR BOYFRIEND!!!]]
* SoreLoser: He completely melts down after losing 4-1 to Wade in Mole Hammers.
* {{Squee}}: If you ever doubt that Mark is {{Adorkable}}, just look at his reaction to anything related to space. A good chunk of his ''Videogame/AlienIsolation'' playthrough was appreciating the scenery of space, and he takes his geeking out UpToEleven when he plays [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_ZMeOh_VBc Universe Sandbox]].
* StalkerWithACrush: He acts like this during his "Flappy Fedora" and “Yandere Simulator” playthroughs. This is PlayedForLaughs, of course, with the former being a parody of neckbeards and the latter being an exaggerated interpretation of the {{Yandere}} archetype.
* StunnedSilence: This happens to him when he sees the TwistEnding in ''VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse''. He stays quiet for over a minute before he recovers.
** More so when he completes the game Reunion. [[spoiler:He finally reaches the boy he had been trying to find, to find out that the character he had been controlling was trying to kill the boy due to him suffering from schizophrenia. Mark is in complete shock from that point until the end of the video ]].
** More humorously, when he finds the "Dancing Room" easter egg in ''The Darkest Words'' all he can do is [[FlatWhat stare]].
** Happens ''several'' times when playing {{VideoGame/Monstrum}}. The first two times it happens when he hadn't realized there was a monster so close (or, in the second case, he hadn't realised there was a monster ''at all''), but the third time it was the brutal manner of death that got him.
** During his playthrough of the "Silent Hill: Alchemilla" demo, he stays silent for seven seconds after he realizes the last part of the demo has changed.
** After witnessing [[spoiler:the Bite Incident]] in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'', Mark can do nothing but stare in open-mouthed horror for almost twenty seconds.
** Mark and Tyler are both shocked when [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Flowey kills Asgore]] after they spare the latter.]] Tyler is the first to respond by saying that he hates [[spoiler:Flowey.]]
** When he finally reaches the earliest memory of Johnny during his playthrough of VideoGame/ToTheMoon, he enters a quick one between a couple of [[WhamLine wham lines]] when everything starts to click about what just happened.
--->'''Eve:''' Didn't you see it in his room, Neil? [[spoiler:...Johnny slept on a bunk bed.]]
--->(Mark goes silent and gives the camera a look of [[spoiler:horror]])
--->(a new text bubble pops up at the bottom of the screen)
--->'''Mark:''' (reading in a very quiet voice with the same expression) [[spoiler:Joey...]]
%%* SurpriseCreepy: He puts one of these into his World's Third Quietest Let's Play video.
* SurvivalMantra: "Little piggy no no, little piggy go home", starting with his first encounter with Chris Walker in Outlast, he sings this little verse in an attempt to ward off another incident of the man pulling him out of his hiding places. It even transfers over to VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs when he is running from the manpigs.
** He briefly uses a modified version of it again later in ''Among the Sleep'' while trying to hide from the giant woman.
** From his playthrough of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2'': "Don't wake the baby!", his frantic cry when trying to keep the music box wound and "the baby" from killing him.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: In Besiege, Mark insists that the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Killdeathinator5]] is NOT a murder machine, [[BlatantLies but a farming tool.]]
-->'''Mark:''' It's got a plow in the front for tilling the field, [[HumanResources for when you kill everyone, and they fertilize the soil.]]
** Same goes for its SpiritualSuccessor, the Nota-Pe-Nis.
** And again in his VideoGame/StardewValley livestream. The crops are planted in that pattern because it makes for aerodynamic farming, that's all!
* SwearJar: In ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfnVCduWglY Mario Maker #15]]'', he decides to donate $100 to charity every time he swears. He ends up owing $3,700.
* SynchroVox: Used in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndsaoMFz9J4 MEOW]]'' and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MujRLvZ61jE WOOF]]'' to tremendous effect.
* TakeThat:
** Usually doesn't do these and if he has a problem with a game he is usually direct with expressing it. Still does this occasionally, such as in Part 2 of his ''The Curse of Blackwater'' playthrough, when he gets attacked by a Necromorph, he comments that there must be a portal in the game to the Franchise/DeadSpace universe and mocks that it's where all the scariness of the series went.
** There's also this little bit from ''Probably Archery'':
--->'''Mark''': "I'm like [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]] crossed with [[ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} that guy from]] ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avengers]]'' [[ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} that no one cared about!]]"
** The ''Flappy Fedora'' video is stuffed to the brim with pot shots at men's rights activists and "nice guys".
** He's not fond of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'' movie and made [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJb-rYPc6eg a video]] making fun of it. He even stated that the video is not sponsored and that he'll never want that sponsorship.
* TemptingFate: If Mark is bragging about how good he is at a game (along the lines of "I'm too pro!"), expect something to go hilariously wrong in a few moments.
** Poor Mark just can't win in ''Containment Breach''. He was sure that he'd eluded 173, only to open a sliding door and see the statue leering at him. Mark had just blinked before opening the door.
** In another instance, Mark fled SCP-106 by ducking into an elevator. 106 simply walked through the wall.
** In his ''Cry of Fear'' LP, Mark laughs off a warning telling him to 'watch out for the trees'. [[http://youtu.be/YZY4WQlXmxE?t=2m30s Guess]] what happens next..
** In Vanish:
-->'''Mark:''' ''That doesn't necessarily guarantee there's a monster nearby, that only means that something's start-''
-->'''*Monster appears, killing Mark*'''
** Lampshaded in VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4:
-->'''Mark:''' ''So the first night is usually never that bad in any of the games so I play thro-''
-->'''*Chica kills Mark*'''
-->'''Mark:''' ''It's always when I'm saying something. It's always when I'm "Oh, I'ma be ok. Oh, everything's fine!"''
** In Part 8 of his ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' playthrough, Mark brags about how he's made good choices so far since all the protagonists are still alive. [[spoiler:Ten minutes later, Matt dies because of two wrong choices he makes at the beginning of the video: [[GuideDangIt letting Emily keep the flare gun and choosing to try to save her when the wendigoes attack the radio tower.]] ]]
** In ''Boogeyman #5'':
-->'''Mark:''' The good thing is: It's quiet!
--> (Musicbox starts playing)
-->'''Mark:''' Nevermind!
* TenderTears: Mark's known for keeping his heart on his sleeve and being unafraid to cry on camera. For example, he made sure he recorded his immediate response to the six million subscriber fan video because crying was the only genuine reaction he had.
* ThatCameOutWrong: In his playthrough of The Visitor Returns Mark mentions how the assimilation of the raccoon was not as violent as it could have been:
-->'''Mark:''' "Normally when I go inside things they explo- Okay THAT really does not need to be taken the wrong way."
** In "Reading Your Comments 8", one comment is "VideoGame/HuniePop is a porn".
--->Yes. And it's very fun. Oh, I shouldn't say that. Oh that's not what I mean, I take it back. I mean it ''is'' fun, it's a fun game, I'm not saying porn is fun. Uhh, oh God...
** “Oh man, [[JumpScare I didn't even see Chica comin'!]]” ''(suddenly realizes what that line sounds like)'' “Aaaah, [[LampshadeHanging that's not a joke for the Internet to enjoy!]]"
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to ''himself'' when he [[spoiler:causes Ashley's death in ''Until Dawn'']]
-->'''Mark:''' ''I can accept my mistake with [[spoiler:Matt,]] I can accept that, I can accept it, I can accept that, what I cannot accept is the bullshit that you just made me watch you freaking stupid Markymoo. I'm yelling at myself, because I'm a freaking idiot. (Points to himself) YOU! HOW DARE YOU! HOW COULD YOU LET [[spoiler:ASHLEY]] DIE LIKE THAT?! [[spoiler:ASHLEY]] WAS COOL!
* TooDumbToLive: During a segment of Drunk Minecraft, Mark teases the server's mod, Latingoddess, that Zombiemold (the server's owner and Latingoddess's boyfriend) has a lot of fangirls. She then proceeds to kill him. With lightning. ''A lot''.
* TheUnintelligible: Lapses into this when he's particularly upset. Or after he's consumed hot sauce.
* VillainousBreakdown: The ''Flappy Fedora'' video is pretty much him acting as the stereotypical [[BitchInSheepsClothing "Nice Guy"]] slowly [[SanitySlippage going insane]] from constant rejection.
--> It's an awfully euphotic day, don't you think? So just come on, give me a chanse! Please! I-I-I I DESERVE IT, DON'T I?! I'M THE ALPHA MALE!! [[{{Angrish}} I'M FVEHRY TELGENT! ARHVHRGA!!]]
* ViolationOfCommonSense: Occurs in his ''VideoGame/{{Limbo}} LP.
-->'''Mark:''' ''These look dangerous. I should probably not jump face-first into them... but when have I ever listened to good reason? Whop! *jumps into bear trap* Ew...''
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Wade. They pick on, insult, and screw each other over in games all the time, but they are friends. When Mark and Wade did a joint LP of ''SevenDaysToDie'', Wade mentions that Mark's treatment of him in Drunk Minecraft has actually convinced a lot of people that Mark is actually a massive JerkAss. They don't actually believe that Mark and Wade are friends, and ask Wade if he's being forced to go along with Mark and do things. They both find this hilarious, and though Mark and Wade both assure viewers that they are indeed friends, they do nothing to correct people's assumptions in the Drunk Minecraft videos themselves.
* VocalDissonance: His rather deep voice initially contrasted his sinewy appearance and Asian features until he began developing more rugged features.
* VocalEvolution: Compare how Markiplier sounded in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjOLGq7LNCk 2013]] to how he sounds in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6xX5LANn5Y 2015]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: W-Z]]
* WaitingSkeleton: In his "A Date With Markiplier" ChooseYourOwnAdventure series of videos, Markiplier encounters one of these in the cell he and his date can find themselves in after being imprisoned by the Chef for not paying for their restaurant bill. This prompts him to search for a way out - either dig through the cell floor with a fork he stole (which proves to be ineffective) or pick the lock with said fork.
* WaxingLyrical: During [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1gQ8VvRszs&t=11m55s Part 4 of his Five Nights at Freddy's playthrough]], on the sixth night:
-->''Fill my life with hate...''
-->''[[Music/PapaRoach Cut my life into pieces]]''
-->''Don't shove me in a suit''
-->''I hate you to your head''
-->''Right down to your glute''
-->''...or brand-new boots''
* WeAreExperiencingTechnicalDifficulties: Markiplier has one of these after he rages on an ''Amnesia'' custom story. Also done in Octodad, together with a background collage of increasingly disturbing kitten videos.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Creepy mannequins/suits of armor are his archnemy, seeing as he encounters them a lot (starting with [[NightmareHouse Nightmare House 2]] and then again in the ''VideoGame/{{Amnesia|TheDarkDescent}}'' custom stories). After a particularly hair-raising puzzle involving false books and stalking mannequins in ''Kraven Manor'', one of them is crushed in a bookcase trap, prompting Mark to [[EvilLaugh cackle maniacally]].
** He’s also not too fond of creepy things pertaining to children or babies in horror, referring to them as "diabolical".
** Courtesy of the Working Joes in ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation'', Mark reveals that he has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automatonophobia automatonophobia]].
** While all of the death animations in the "Whack Your/The _____" games gross Mark out, the ones that get the most reactions out of him involve [[ImpromptuTracheotomy neck]] [[SlashedThroat trauma]].
** Hd has alluded to being afraid of the ocean, particularly the idea that something could be lurking in the water to harm him, and sometimes informs his fans that if he ever gets stuck in the ocean, they are to come and save him. During his ''{{VideoGame/Depth}}'' LP, he admits that while he hates the ocean, he finds [[ThreateningShark sharks]] in particular truly terrifying. Hence “F*** the ocean" is a common refrain for him while playing both ''Subnautica'' and ''Raft'', which is a name for a ship in the former and the latter features a shark enemy.
* WouldHitAGirl: Discussed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IzkH6ggOHQ here]], he would hit a girl in self defense but also believes that violence is wrong.
* WouldntHurtAChild: He tends to get very upset when a game requires him to attack/kill children.
* {{Yandere}}: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MxQiDG6aCg Best Friends Forever]], Markiplier acts pretty much ''exactly'' like this to Ken. It is... surprisingly terrifying, even when PlayedForLaughs...
-->'''Video Description:''' ''"Markiplier wants to be your best friend! Who are you to ignore my love? No one ignores my love..."''
** And then he plays ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', where he gets into character quickly. He sings about his obsession with Senpai while attempting each of the murder methods.
** [[spoiler:Darkiplier]] is heavily implied to be one for [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the audience]] in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyU_1JD2wuA A Date With Markiplier]]. It's especially creepy considering [[spoiler:he also happens to be a HumanoidAbomination]].
* YankTheDogsChain:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkl5tSOARr0 In his fifth]] episode of ''Vanish'', he finally reaches what appears to be the end of the game and begins to unlock the exit door. Then a monster sneaks behind him and kills him. Cue ''several'' [[BigNo Big "NO!"s]]. His eighth Vanish video had him get the keys twice, but he was unable to find the door and escape.
** In ''Five Nights at Freddy's'', he just ''barely'' beats Night 5 in a display of true awesomeness and is [[BigYes very ecstatic]] about it... only to be crushed when he sees that there's a Night 6.
-->''"WHY IS THERE A SIXTH NIGHT? '''WHY?'''"''
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qLvAoo33UQ The (almost) Perfect Run]] in ''VideoGame/SixtySeconds''. He had a really great start, almost made it to the end, and then all of the bad luck starts.
* YouMonster: Tyler responds to [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Flowey killing Asgore]] during the Neutral Run]] by saying, "Oh, I hate him."
