!!Tropes Used In His Work Include:
* TenMinuteRetirement: Temporarily stopped uploading in September 2012 due to some back problems thanks to carrying equipment at many events. He resumed uploading in October.
* ArchEnemy: [=BradPhusion=] in Happy Wheels. A level designer who's infamous for making [[NintendoHard near impossible]] levels.
** Also in VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV, he often goes out of his way to fight and attack construction workers.
* BerserkButton: He hates it when people [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NylmdC_uEM cheat.]]
** He also developed one to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6eHmLT6GLo comments being marked as spam.]]
* BigNameFan: Notch watches his Happy Wheels playthrough and acted surprised when he was told that Nova was doing Minecraft videos.
** The developers of Payday: The Heist, E.Y.E, and [=Techno Kitten Adventure=] have all told Nova they watch his videos, as well.
** He also proposed, and got to voice act for, the Pogo Stick Man in Happy Wheels.
* BuffySpeak: Usually happens when he's surprised or frustrated. An example being in "Nonsensical SaintsRowTheThird" Episode 57 while he's shooting down an enemy aircraft.
-->'''Nova:''' Go down already you shitty ass... shit shit.
* ButtMonkey: During the Quad Mountain series, his second turtle T-Dog, becomes this. Nova goes as far as to fence him out from all the other turtles he finds later on.
* {{Catchphrase}}: MLG, whenever he does something that is awesome.
** And when he fails at something, "I knew that was going to happen!"
** In VideoGame/HappyWheels: "Fuck the world! *throws [[MadeofPlasticine character's dismembered leg]]*"
** As well as "Wiggle your niblets!" when a character loses all or most of their limbs.
** In his ''VideoGame/MaxPayne 3'' LetsPlay, he will randomly say/shout "Por que!"
** Whenever something in a game grosses him out he usually lets out a distinctive [[ScreamingAtSquick "Eeeeeeewww!"]]
** "Gimmie dat" (Give me that) whenever Nova takes an item, acquires points, or for no reason at all. There's also a [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLF8B8F479FD2E549E video series]] named after this phrase.
* CompanionCube: In a way the Random Bike is this for Nova in his Happy Wheels videos. He attributes actual personality to the bike when it randomly kills him or other characters on the screen, he thinks that the bike is a chaotic trickster that strikes people down at random. This trend started during the very first episode and has persisted since then. Amusingly Nova seems to like the bike as he shows more distress at it being damaged then he does the Little Boy!
** The ficus from Minecraft "WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry: Jerry's Adventure" which he burns down in the end claiming that no one else can have it except for him.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: The blue M&M in the kayak minigame in M&M's Beach Party.
* {{Determinator}}: Even when he knows he can't win, he still keeps going. Sometimes devoting an entire video (or even a few whole episodes) to just one level.
* ADogNamedDog: He has stated in his Happy Wheels series that the little boy's name is "Little Boy".
** It's not limited to Little Boy. Wheelchair Guy is "Old Man", the Effective Shopper is "Big Lady", the baby that rides In Irresponsible Mom's basket is "Little Baby", and the little girl who rides that [[BuffySpeak back-of-the-bike-attachment-thingy]] with Irresponsible Mom is "Little Girl".
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Well he's not evil, though during his ''VideoGame/InFAMOUS2'' playthrough, in which he was aligned evil, he did show some genuine remorse when he was forced to [[spoiler: kill Zeke]] at the end.
* HeroesWantRedheads: When he plays a game with character customization he will usually give him/her red hair. This is seen with his many incarnations of Ginger Powder and Anal Flute from his ''America's Next Top Model'' series.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Usually plays as this when he's given the option, when he's not an outright VillainProtagonist. Best seen in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' and ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With LetsPlay/SSoHPKC, especially on Minecraft. Either that or full on HoYay.
** Don't forget Sp00n. Sp00n has done a lot of cool/funny videos with Nova too. Sp00n was so awesome in Nova's opinion that he not only [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chnjiK_kbvY made him a cake (which he refused to eat when he hilariously jumped off the roof of the Treehouse)]] but dedicated an entire statue to him in Minecraft. You can feel the love.
*** Small shades of this with Kootra. Nova teases Kootra most of the time but they always pull through together in the various projects they have done, especially their Minecraft series with the Tree Houses they made together.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: In an effort to avenge a salad Aleks wasted during the roadtrip to E3 2015, he and Jordan both become "Salad-Wasters" by throwing perfectly good salads at him.
* {{Jerkass}}: His general attitude when playing multiplayer on games.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Genuinely cares for the other Creatures' well-being, and has a tendency to get attached to certain characters in his games. Especially [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/TheWalkingDead Clementine]]
* KickTheDog: Does this quite literally in VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV, where he kicks a dog in the head.
* LargeHam: He tends to throw his mike levels into the red, sometimes, when things aren't going his way.
** Just his general persona is over the top even when he doesn't get angry. Underneath all of that is just a normal guy who likes to have fun as he has said himself during a few videos.
* LetsPlay: Fits all the criteria.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Kootra and Nova can best be described as this. They nag each other quite a bit, which Gassy Mexican puts a LampShadeHanging on.
* LongRunner: Nova's Happy Wheels playthrough ran for over a year and had 198 episodes. The series ended without warning and it's unsure whether or not it has officially ended or if it's just on hiatus. On April 1st, 2013 he uploaded a video saying the series was returning [[spoiler: but it was just an April Fools joke]].
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: He is pretty mean when people tick him off, but when he's playing single-player, he's usually nice to listen to.
** He is pretty kind to his fans if you take a look at some of the video descriptions.
* MacroZone: The map in Minecraft "WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry: Jerry's Adventure" with LetsPlay/SSoHPKC.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: To Nova they are, especially in Saint's Row The Third.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: His playthrough of [[DatingSim ''Fantastic Fivesome.'']] Aside from viewing their OffModel designs as unappealing, he's very annoyed by the girls' vapidness and constant laughing.
* NumberTwo: To Kootra, when Kootra is gone Nova tends to take over Kootra's role as leader. To hear Nova tell it though he usually doesn't need Kootra's help and considers himself an independent entity.
* OhCrap: [[http://youtu.be/62DIS-TDOg0?t=15s Nova decides to play a user-made mission in InFAMOUS 2 and...]]
** Nova also summoned [[EldritchAbomination Herobrine]] by accident. [[http://youtu.be/z5JzyA39ZIo?t=12m48s Cue massive destruction.]]
* PromotedFanboy: Nova can be considered this; his videos of VideoGame/HappyWheels have become so popular that the creator, Jim Bonacci, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3xN9ddBzKs added a character specifically for Nova, complete with voice clips Nova made for the character]].
* RunningGag: The "Gay Tony" jump in Minecraft.
** Several in his VideoGame/HappyWheels videos including: "Wiggle your niblets.", "Random bike.", and "Fuck the world!".
** It seems that one among the comments in the Repeaters / Wool series is how many keyboards Nova has broken from smashing the desk in his rage.
** One in the Game of Life, was "Nova's sister" appearing in game form.
** In Saint's Row: The Third, P Diddy is mentioned whenever Nova or Sp00n see a limousine.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: In the first video on his second account, he picked Kurt Angle to face JBL. JBL hit Angle with 4 finishers and was about to hit a fifth, but his finisher meter ran out.
** Also, with some of the user-created levels in Happy Wheels, sometimes he and the kid end up with about 20 harpoons inside them.
* TooDumbToLive: In his VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Let's Play, he misses a lot of things that are probably necessary for his survival. [[UpToEleven If he doesn't make problems for himself, anyway.]]
* ScreamingAtSquick: One of his [[CatchPhrase catch phrases]]. Whenever he's grossed out by a game usually because of poor graphics or UncannyValley characters.
-->'''Nova''': Eeeeeewwwwwww!
* ShoutOut[=/=]OneOfUs: He has a puppy corgi named [[Anime/CowboyBebop Ein]].
* SoundtrackDissonance: During Nonsensical Saints Row The Third episode 7, Nova and Sp00n were getting chased by the cops. What was playing? ''Satisfaction''
** In the same video before ''Satisfaction'' comes on, they were listening to ''Holding Out For a Hero''.
** Minecraft's serene soundtrack has a tendency to play in the heat of Nova's rage in the videos in his "Yup" playlist. As seen in "MINECRAFT FINISHED 1.0.0" and "SLABS".
* StealthParody: His "REPEATERS / WOOL" series, where at face value, he rages at things that happen or goes ballistic about things he's told. However, in most of them he's actually [[spoiler: making fun of the fact that people [[StopHelpingMe keep telling him the most obvious things]] no matter how much time has passed inbetween recording and uploading.]]
* TrashTheSet: Usually when he finishes a Minecraft adventure map with [[LetsPlay/SSoHPKC Seamus]], they will celebrate the completion by spawning stacks of TNT and blowing the map up.
* {{Tsundere}}: Nova is a full on Tsundere when it comes to the LITTLE BOY(!) in Happy Wheels. There are many times where he will go out of his way to kill the Little Boy, will insult him, or generally not care that he just died, and other times he will be devastated that the Little Boy got killed or hurt or even just so much as fell off the bike.
* UncannyValley: Deliberately invoked in Saints Row the Third with his character named [[{{Gonk}} Ginger Powder]].
* VideoGameCaringPotential: Despite VideoGame/HappyWheels' tendency for him to display the below, he made it something of a point with the new character Irresponsible Mom to get across a level with both of her children (relatively) intact. It goes about as well as you'd expect.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: VideoGame/HappyWheels. Full stop.
** Especially... THE LITTLE BOY!
* VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: About 3-4 times in the Happy Wheels playthrough, whenever he would launch the Little Boy into a harpoon trap or another kind of trap that would've spelled death for Nova, the traps would just ignore the Little Boy and activate on Nova.
* VitriolicBestBuds: James can have a somewhat silly and crude sense of humor against just about everyone but especially against Kootra who he makes fun of the most (insults like Kootra smells, etc.). However you can tell that the teasing is all in good spirits and that they are really friends.
** With Sly as well where Sly and Nova constantly insult each other, screw up their work on projects, and they will sometimes go out of their way to do something mean to the other.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: A small one occurred in his Portal 2 co-op with LetsPlay/SlyFoxHound. He was going through a puzzle and at the end, it required Nova to drop a Companion Cube horizontally via wave tunnel into a small little opening. He drops it in then complains to Sly that's he's stuck
* YankTheDogsChain: During Happy Wheels episode 82, Nova took on an incredibly hard map and kept dying on one part for five minutes. He finally makes it past that part only to trip mines in a later part. Many fans commented that they felt Nova's pain when he died on that part.
** Also, episodes 95-98, when he played the Ocarina of Time map. That ONE booster section immediately after Gohma screws him over so often it's unfunny.
** According to the comments, though, it might have made it worse for Nova because the original creator of the map fixed the booster after Nova was done with the level.
* YouShouldHaveDiedInstead: In Quad Mountain Survival: Nova and two of his pet turtles: Rick and T-Dog were attacked by a lightning creeper and Rick is killed while T-Dog narrowly survives. Nova having a bad relationship with T-Dog wishes he died instead of Rick.
