--> --typical intro to one of his videos

-> "Phantom Savage is not a Let's Player. Phantom Savage is an ''experience''."
--> --a youtube comment that nicely sums up his style

[[http://www.youtube.com/user/phantomsavage?blend=1&ob=4 PhantomSavage]] is a Let's Player from the world of Youtube, one of the more famous ones, it seems. Definitely one of the crazier ones, as brilliantly demonstrated in his ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' LP (his most popular work). He's known for his tendency to [[NoIndoorVoice yell really loudly]] in his videos, as well as for not keeping a schedule. Recently, he started doing fandubs of random series and posting the results on his channel. Occasionally he will take requests.

He is a friend of both LetsPlay/{{Tatsudoshi}} and LetsPlay/TheKholdOne, evidenced by his frequent appearances in both of their videos. He has also started a co-op channel with his friend, KZX (Website/YouTube name GoddammitJoel) called [=TheBasterdBrothers=]. He has an infrequently updated website (where he's uploaded longer, better quality versions of some LP's), [[http://phantomunderground.com here.]]
!!Phantom has LP'd the following games:

* ''VideoGame/WarOfTheMonsters''
* ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans''
* ''VideoGame/DeadRising''
* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' (a few random videos, not a full-on LP)
* ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'' (a short demonstration of co-op mode)
* ''[[VideoGame/DeadRising2 Dead Rising: Off the Record]]''
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''
* ''VideoGame/AlanWake''
* ''VideoGame/IAmAlive''
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' (with Khold)

!!Tropes included in Phantom's work include:

* AxCrazy: Loves to act completely psychotic, as seen in his Dead Rising videos.
* BerserkButton: The entirety of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwqJvI3uMtI this video.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3S29Lsq4YW0&feature=player_detailpage#t=569s Do not take his fedora.]]
** Game mechanics that force you to stop progressing in the middle of a fight, leading to death.
*** Otis from the original ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' drove Phantom so thoroughly nuts, he ''rewrote the plot of the sequel'' to have Frank ''[[KilledOffscreen track Otis down and murder him]]''.
* ButtMonkey: At least in most Skype calls, see: His Smurf Escapades, His Therapy Session (with WebVideo/DrunkenDan as Dr. Lipshitz), and the 90% of the times he impersonates UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0kR4p8ED-g This video]] had Phantom playing Super Khold World, a hard romhack [[CaptainObvious made by Khold]]. His reaction [[BreakTheBadass says it all]].
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: In a conversation with his friends on Skype, he keeps mispronouncing Toblerone to varying degrees such as Toberloan, Tobleronie, Tapron, and Tobey Maguire just to piss off his friend, {{GFPPM}}.
* LargeHam: If the page quote doesn't give it away, nothing will.
** For someone who insists he doesn't have much of a vocal range, he sure can put on a lot of different emotive voices in the span of 30 seconds.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "WHERE! IS! MY! HAAAAAT!"]]
* RunningGag: His love of funny headgear in the ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' series.
** His pathological hatred of survivors.
** In ''Off The Record'', Phantom redubs Frank West's lines himself (but not anyone else). As the game progresses, Phantom goes increasingly off-script, delivering much snark but also making Frank sound like a nut.
* ScheduleSlip: [=PhantomSavage=] doesn't have anything even remotely resembling a regular update schedule; videos come when they come. His LP of ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' took '''two full years''' to complete (but was worth it). Other games have not had it ''quite'' so bad he got through ''Off The Record'' in just over six months.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Given the opportunity, Phantom can really go into this territory pretty easily.
* ShoutOut: When he first gets a flamethrower in ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'', we get a segment [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 where the screen is tinted blue and "Do You Believe In magic" starts playing]] as he roasts some zombies.
** He also calls a homeless guy Chester A. Bum.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Snickerdoodles come up a lot in his ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' LP
