Lets Play: Naka Teleeli
NakaTeleeli is a Let's Player who prefers to LP obscure games along with fan made games, usually playing as female characters. He is joined most of the time by his close friend ElementalOgre for multiplayer games. Much chaos and fun follows. His Youtube page is right here and he also has a forum here. Both NakaTeleeli and ElementalOgre have been hired on as co-hosts for the podcast Moonhawk Studios Presents. In late 2011, NakaTeleeli created a new series based off of first impressions of recently acquired games, which has since been named Maiden Reactions, some episodes are done single-player and other episodes are done with ElementalOgre and his friends from the Moonhawk Studios Presents podcast. On November 7, 2012 it was announced that the Maiden Reactions series would be retired for various reasons.

On March 15, 2013, he started a new series called "Dancing with BAMs", in which he solos BAMs in Tera Online. He has also recently started doing Fragment Fridays, which he streams .Hack//Fragment.

Tropes that apply to them and their videos:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: The Fighting Father's Day Fracas in the Let's Muscle series.
  • All Just a Dream: Minecraft Journey Home and Fate's Grasp turned out to be this.
    • Actually...not so. The "dream of life" wasn't a literal dream, but more a metaphor for gaming/life itself. He could "imagine whatever he wanted, however he wished", and the Sign Maker was intruding on his "dream" and those of others. (I.E. The various worlds Naka went to.) At the end, he was back in his own world so, naturally, were it all a dream, the first series would have been one, as well.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Ogre in the more recent Persona 4 videos.
  • And I Must Scream: A literal example, at the end of That Stage We Will Never Speak Of Again.
  • April Fools' Day: Oh Naka, you tease.
  • Ascended Extra: Madame Berry, who only appeared temporarily in Super Mario 3D World playing alongside Naka and Ogre (as Toad), proceeded to appear again in Trine 2 as the sole guest.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Several episodes from Journey Home were turned into bonus episodes because Naka's want of showing off all the dungeons in the mod came off as this.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: According to him, anyway.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Naka was hoping to find something at the beginning of episode 7 of his Minecraft Survival LP. Come the end of Episode 8, he's found a dungeon and a mineshaft, is filled up with items... and is completely, utterly lost, far from home, and has so many good items on him now, dying means the entire trip has become POINTLESS.
    NakaTeleeli: Maybe next time, we can... not... get completely lost in here—I just wanna go home!
  • Berserk Button: FREAKING ICE!!!
    • As for the comments section, spoilers and unnecessary references.
    • In a recent Paper Mario episode, Naka gets into a rant about people claiming something generic is actually a reference.
  • Big Bad: His Minecraft LP has one in The Signmaker.
    • Big Bad Friend: Literally, The Signmaker is actually the unnamed friend that serves as the viewpoint character for everything before Journey Home.
    • This combined with Anti-Hero is also his interpretation of Dark Cube in EDGE.
  • Brief Accent Imitation: Naka and Ogre tends to use funny accents at times. Most predominantly in the Lost Vikings LP.
  • Broken Pedestal: According to one of his commentary videos on his Minecraft series, the fight with the Enderdragon caused this in "Friend." Basically, the revelation of Naka's mortality caused "Friend" to believe himself superior to his mentor figure, as opposed to an equal previously.
    • It wasn't because Naka died, it was because Naka lost.
  • Buffy Speak
  • Catch Phrase: "Greetings and salutations, dear viewer(s)." - used to open a Maiden Reactions vid or another non-Let's Play vid.
    • "I got this!"
    • "Eat it!" - usually said during boss fights.
    • "...so that's a thing," or "Let's do a thing" or other variants on that.
    • "Oh heavens!" - usually used for situations where Oh, Crap doesn't quite suffice.
    • "That'll do her."
    • "That was almost dangerous."
    • More recently, Naka and Ogre have taken to saying "For freedom/glory!"
    • His euphemism "Fudge that noise".
    • "It's OHM NAKA!" from his Frägment Friday streams.
  • Christmas Cake: From the Persona 4 LP:
    Ogre: Well, we're 26, so... We're Christmas cakes, but we're manly Christmas cakes!
  • Cliff Hanger: Journey Home has recently ended on one, as Naka falls into the hands of the Sign Maker again.
  • Combined Energy Attack: The very end of the Touhou Mother LP, which has everyone in the entire Mother and Touhou universes lending their power to finally destroy Giygas and Porky once and for all.
  • Convection Schmonvection: Discussed at the start of part 25 of New Super Mario Bros. U. They talk about convection and how they should currently be on fire. The conversation ends with them agreeing that the Mushroom Kingdom's physics are bullshit.
  • Cross Player: Most of time, Naka will choose a female character when given a choice. Not to mention his regular avatar.
    • Including the Minecraft series, where his skin is Curly Brace.
    • Also, his Mii is a female version of him.
  • Cute Kitten: here.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Both Naka and Ogre can be pretty dry at times. Naka especially.
    NakaTeleeli It would help if we were actually IN Japan.
    ElementalOgre *Thinking he means in the game* We are.
    NakaTeleeli No we're not.
    ElementalOgre Yeah we are, Inaba Japan?
    NakaTeleeli I'm on the East Coast, I'm not sure where you are.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Naka hits one in Episode 64 of Fate's Grasp. It is very painful to watch.
  • Dungeon Bypass: Journey Home has Naka doing this in a manner most awesome in Episode 46.
  • Ear Rape: YOOOOOSHIIII!!! here.
    • NOOOOOO!!! WEEGEE DIE!!!
    • BOMAR NOT MAKE TOUCHDOWN!!! [1]
  • Face Palm: Naka inserts an image of a double facepalm in Persona 4 episode 48, at about 6:49 in, as his reaction to Ogre's rather blatant brony reference.
    ElementalOgre: But I wanted to hit the bookstore! They were gonna have the new issue of 'My Little Chojin: Wrestling Is Magic!'
    NakaTeleeli: *groan*
    ElementalOgre: It's gonna have Applesmack take on Warsmare and we're gonna see the Hayseed Bomb! It's gonna be GREAT!
    NakaTeleeli: *double groan with double facepalm*
  • Filler: Episodes Lookout, Jungle, and Dungeon of "Minecraft: Journey Home" were dubbed as filler and removed from the playlist. Episode 50 Volcano has a short montage of Naka passing the entrances to the dungeon of those episode, but with Naka deciding to ignore them and continue onward.
  • Flat "What.": During Episode 66 of Persona 4, on Ogre's description of "Men in History":
    ElementalOgre: It's just a Fist of the North Star book... starring Teddy Roosevelt.
    NakaTeleeli: What. And why must I read this?
  • Genre Savvy: Both Naka and Ogre, to quite an extent.
    • Happens A LOT in the Persona 4 LP, as Ogre tends to predict what the characters will say.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Naka pretty much never curses in his videos, even when he's panicking. This definitely is subverted when it comes to Ogre, though.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: The subtitles for the Guacamelee! LP are in Spanish.
  • Groin Attack: Once or twice, ElementalOgre tries a Nut Punch. Which Naka usually blocks and counters.
  • Heroic BSOD: Ogre has one at the beginning of the Metal Slug 1 playthrough, because Law and Order was cancelled. Ronnie James Dio passed away, and he saw an episode of Glenn Beck. Thankfully, Naka snaps him out of it.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: In the New Super Mario Bros. Wii playthrough, Ogre was stated from the beginning to be 'murderous'. And boy, does he prove that on several occasions. Except when the level's killing everyone enough so that he really isn't needed.
  • He's Back: Let's Muscle has FINALLY brought back Elemental Ogre in co-op vids.
    NakaTeleeli: I really like the way everything's been going on the channel recently but... something just... feels like it's missing. And... I have no idea what.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Naka and Ogre lampshade this trope here.
    • Naka has gone on record and said that Ogre actually complements him very well in his LPs and he doesn't feel like he's as good in the vids without him by his side.
  • The Homeward Journey: Journey Home is an extended one of these following the finale of the original Minecraft Survival Let's Play.
  • Hope Spot: In the first episode of Journey Home, after going through loads of jungle, waking up to a village in flames, and traveling quite far, Naka finally makes it back home...or does he?
  • I'm Taking Her Home with Me!: Upon exiting a village in Megaman Legends 2, Naka bumps into an abandoned Servbot who was left accidentally by Tron Bonne. After talking to the sad Servbot, Naka ends the video, picks up the Servbot, and runs toward the Flutter saying, "Taking you home with me."
  • The Lancer: Ogre, and HOW. Lampshaded in the One of Us quote below.
  • Large Ham: Naka is a large ham (especially when in his manly moments) but when him and Ogre are together, it leads into Ham-to-Ham Combat territory.
  • Laugh with Me: Part 40 of Lost Vikings. 00:30
  • MSTing: The let's watch Space Channel 5 videos where Naka and Ogre merely watch the game and commentate over it in lieu of actually playing the games.
  • Moving the Goalposts: Seems to be happening in Journey Home.
  • Nerf: Discussed; In part 23 of New Super Mario Bros. U, Naka and Ogre talk about a difficult boss fight in an MMO that they fought way back when. They claim that if someone calls that fight easy, then they probably fought it after it was nerfed.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Sign Maker/Friend from Minecraft. He is described as a very young child whose maturity did not grow as he learned more about the world. In Fate's Grasp it comes to a point where Sign Maker drags Naka through many different worlds and tried to kill him various times because he simply viewed Naka as a plaything.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Ogre and Naka, respectively.
    • This extends to their playstyles as well. Naka is the more cautious of the two while Ogre is the more reckless.
  • Running Gag:
    • Kirby and The Amazing Mirror : Most of the videos start with a small segment explaining why this mirror is so amazing.
    • Persona 4: INABAAAA (each time the name of the town is mentioned)
      • Municipal Hospital!
      • Naka and Ogre (in unison): "RANKU AHP!" and more recently adding an adjective before the "RANKU AHP!"
    • Paper Mario: I hear it's a haven for stars.
      • Star Poots, away!
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In episode 35 of Journey Home, Naka decides he has had enough of the Sky Island, especially with the strange entity trying to keep him occupied with various tasks. Unfortunately, said island is floating above the void and there's no visible land in sight. But the compass is pointing in a certain direction so he just builds a bridge in that direction. He eventually gets to solid ground again.
    • Happens again in the second episode of Escapecraft, after he gets nearly killed by the strange entity, apparently growing tired of him. He finds a loophole and gathers enough material to break out of where he is. Unfortunately, he could have incurred its wrath in the process if the end of the video was any indication.
  • Sequence Breaking: Taken Up to Eleven in A Link to the Past, where he intentionally glitches his way through the game and does everything out of order. The first episode, which went up on April Fool's Day, even had him sequence break past the final boss.
    Naka: Oh hey, we found the Triforce! Heck yeah. Well, I guess we beat the game. That was a short Let's Play.
  • Shout-Out: The most recent example of their various Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure shout outs is the 'Standsona' from the Persona 4 LP.
  • Shown His Work: Frequently in his LPs. Most notable are the .//hack Quadgrillogy, where he splices in scenes from the related animes 'Liminality' and 'Sign', and Okami, where he points out the mythological references in the game. He likes to research the game and inform his watching audience of any related info to the scene while avoiding spoilers (minor ones get through but they don't reveal that much except little details).
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He's actually been raised to avert this trope, according to a response in part 3 of his Image Fight LP. That said, a few utterances of the word crap slipped out in the same video, but "crap" is so mild that it doesn't really count.
  • Stripperific: His female avatar.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Naka as well as Ogre are particularly fond of this trope.
  • The Many Deaths of You: The patented death montages seen in the Let's Try of Eryi's Action.
  • The Reveal: Fate's Grasp, Episode 67. When Naka finally makes it back to his own world, after running one last Nightmare Fuel-filled gauntlet, we get a look at the Sign Maker's POV as he leaves Naka. We can see clearly he only has two things in his possession...a diamond sword, and 105 experience...something only one person had after slaying the Enderdragon..."Friend".
  • Third-Person Person: Ogre on occasion, when assuming the personalities of certain characters.
    • Weegee. Dear God, Weegee...
  • Yandere: Sign Maker, earlier known as "Friend" from Naka's Minecraft playthrough. According to the Behind The Scenes videos, Friend "did not take kindly to the idea of Naka meeting and speaking and hanging out with other people", implying that Friend killed all the people in the village and severely wounded Doggy with an explosion when Naka's back was turned because he wanted Naka all to himself.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: You want out of the mineshafts, Naka? Okay. We'll just plop you out here somewhere.
    • The sad, sad fate of Naka's first Minecraft pet in Part 12.
    • Episode 50 of Journey Home. After going through most difficult dungeon to date, the only thing worthwhile things he finds is an enchanted diamond helmet and a diamond block. Not wanting to have to go back through the dungeon to get out he tunnels out of the boss' room. It turns out that he past it on the way down. Most of this hour long episode could have been avoided if he just investigated the out of place brick wall. At the end you can hear him trying not to slip into a Madness Mantra.
    • In episode 1 of Fate's Grasp, the being watching over Naka seems to be fond of this, though Naka WAS trying to run away multiple times...
  • Yuri Fan: A light touch of this is shown in Naka's Let's Play of Touhou Mother.
