Adam Montoya, better known as SeaNanners, is a Let's Player based in Los Angeles, California, who is affiliated with Machinima Respawn, starring in the series Hello, Everyone! My Name is SeaNanners. Nanners takes his one-million-plus YouTube subscribers on journeys through almost every manner of video game, from first-person shooters like Call of Duty: Black Ops to sandboxes like Minecraft, and nearly everything in between. He is known for his variety of videos, general friendliness, humor, and occasionally discussing life and wisdom in his videos. His current format is to upload a highlights reel of his recent gaming session (usually in Garry's Mod), once a day. The people he plays with usually upload longer videos on their own channels that contain the bits in between.
SeaNanners provides examples of:
The Ace: Among his group of friends, Adam is perhaps the most skilled gamer, frequently dominating any game he participates in and coming up with great stunts that others would have difficulty replicating.
Affably Evil: His game persona online. He'll politely barter with other players, generally being a friendly guy all the while... often planning to stab them in the back eventually. In real life, you can drop the evil part.
Angrish: A variant where he throws in a lot of giggling and laughter.
Annoying Laugh: The laugh itself isn't that annoying, but it usually means Adam is doing something sneaky or devilish. The people who play with Adam have learned to associate the two, especially in Hide and Seek-related games.
Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He may be silly, but make no mistake, he is very good at video games.
Obfuscating Stupidity: How much of his behavior is calculated, natural, or just for the fun of it isn't clear.
Butt Monkey: Adam tends to be murdered a lot in multiplayer games when he's innocent, owing to his being really good at manipulation to the point that other people try killing him straight away to prevent this.
Hell, even the games he plays don't tend to cut him slack. In Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2, he spawns in as the token Nazi, causing people to make jokes that cross the line twice and accuse him of being a Nazi in real life.
Other people getting this treatment in his videos tend to mostly be Goldy and Chilled, although nobody is safe from this treatment from time to time.
Bond Villain Stupidity: Often times he corners his friends, but decides to taunt them rather than finish them off. See Humiliation Conga bellow. The worst part is that he can often get away with this and still win, although occasionally it does lead to his failure.
Catch Phrase: "Hello, everyone! My name is SeaNanners..." used to be this, although he tends not to say this so much anymore owing to format change.
Cheaters Never Prosper: Zig Zagged. His skill at video games is often attributed by his opponents to cheating (since he usually exploits odd glitches or less well known wonky physics) even though he isn't...maybe...
Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Particularly in Prop Hunt, where he will either try to bargain with the hunters for survival by handing over the locations of other props, or will encourage props he finds to do this. He never keeps his word.
Cloud Cuckoolander: Borders on it sometimes, although it's definitely exaggerated for entertainment purposes; Adam is a sane and coherent guy in real life.
Consummate Liar: When playing Trouble in Terrorist Town - it really helps him. It's so prevalent that his YouTuber buddies have a motto based around it - "Never Trust Nanners".
Blatant Lies: On some occasions, he'll keep lying even when it's not plausible; his laughing doesn't help.
Crying Wolf: On the rare occasions when he's being completely honest!
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Nanners is very silly and playful in most games, but he's still one of the most skilled players in his group, and it shows whenever he doesn't stoop to Bond Villain Stupidity. He's a good enough manipulator, player and entertainer that he can afford to goof off and still manage to win a large number of times.
Damn You, Muscle Memory: When playing a game that wasn't Prop Hunt, Sark once complained that he kept unconsciously looking down at his feet every time he entered a new room due to Nanner's penchant for darting under people with small props in prop hunt.
The Hyena: Around 50% of what comes out of his mouth is laughter. When he has to lie, his facecam shows him struggling to not laugh.
In recent videos, people have weaponised Adam's laughter against him; they've noted the correlation between how close they are to their target in Prop Hunt and how much he is laughing, referring to it as "the retarded laughter" or "the Geiger counter".
Animated videos now depict him as a dolphin when he's laughing his head off.
Never My Fault: Tends to adopt this mindset to annoy other players, notably with Jordan when he's having a streak of bad gameplay in Arma 3.
One-Man Army: In The Hidden, he's pretty much unstoppable when playing as the titular character, whereas the others are good but not as good. This caries over into the Garry's Mod Stalker game mode, which plays very similarly, but with more powers for him to abuse. Averted in most other games where outside of his psychological taunting, he's on par with everyone else gameplay-wise.
Tempting Fate: In Prop Hunt, he has a tendency to throw away easy victories for the sake of trying to rub his potential victory in his opponents' faces. It occasionally works, but not often, and even if he does win he will die.
Troll: He has his tendencies, especially when playing Trouble in Terrorist Town and Prop Hunt, even moreso when playing Murder since he actually rigged the game against them.
The Reveal: In one of his Murder videos, Adam confesses that he could have and had been rigging any given Murder game mode, much to the shock and disbelief of his friends.
GassyMexican: "I HATE YOU SO MUCH!"
(GoldGlove starts trying to kill Nanners.)
GassyMexican: "KILL HIM! KILL HIM NOW!"
GoldGlove: "I'm so mad. I'm so mad. I am in a furious, fucking rage-"
GassyMexican: "Oh my lord.. we're not playing games with you anymore."
Though he claims he doesn't rig every single game, just having the power to do so every single game, and he claims there are limits to how far her can go, such as being unable to choose who the armed bystander is.
