The Online Warrior is an ongoing series of YouTube videos, made by "Miles923," also known as Maximilian. For a while, it chronicled his adventures in online games, including fighting and FPS games.However, on the fourth episode of his Marvel vs. Capcom 3 series, he started doing something different- a character guide for individual characters, called Assist Me, beginning with Dr. Doom. This series is a departure from his normal fare, with actors playing the parts of the various characters, and something resembling a storyline. It was even picked up by Capcom to promote the release of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, with 6 episodes covering 12 characters, and Marvel vs. Capcom Origins. Max has continued the show, which will soon be entering its third season.Max also covers trailers for new games, reviews older games on his "Sega Saturn Saturdays," does playthroughs of existing games, and provides live commentaries for his games during various "Week of" series.Max also now has a channel Yo Videogames! for his Let's Play content which is done mostly with Matt Simmons (Doom), so that his other channel can focus on competitive games.In Yo Videogames! there's the normal Let's Play and old-school games aptly named "Retro Coach".NOTE: Please add any tropes related to Assist Me or it's alternate channel Yo Videogames in its proper page.
Max has also stated before that he likes to think of choosing fighting game characters based on the one playing in some way, shape, or form. Thus, he tends to focus on blonde men that wear red. (For example, Ken.)
Author Appeal: Overlaps with the above trope. Most of Max's notable mains like Ken and Siegfried are based on his own criterion stated above. Aside from these, he is also known to play the following characters in other fighting games:
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Dr. Doom, Strider Hiryu, Wesker, Nova, Dante, Akuma
Persona 4 Arena: Akihiko
Street Fighter III: Third Strike: Dudley, Q, Oro, Alex
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Batgirl, Batman, Superman
Super Smash Bros.: Marth, Captain Falcon, Link, Snake
The above trend when it comes to mains was broken in Super Smash Bros.Kerfuffle, as he mostly plays Megaman, despite the Blue Bomber being meh at best, simply because he's a big fan of the franchise.
Atomic F-Bomb: Prominent in Yo Videogames! where either Max or Matt will drop one when overly frustrated by the games' Fake Difficulty or their lack of ability to overcome the challenge brought to them.
Badass: Max has completed many a challenge massive in difficulty.
Taunting. Max considers this very offensive and extremely unsportsmanship.
Something even worse as teabag quickly turns him into a salty revenge driven player.
Beware the Nice Ones: Max is mostly cordial and very nice, although he gets cocky every now and then, but press one of his buttons and all things tend to go downhill. Most of times hilariously.
In another video Max puts up with Doom's antics a lot but snaps when Doom, in quick succession, interrupts his Call of Duty match, brings up gross Latvernian customs, sets the curtains and Ammy on fire, and disconnects the host. We don't see anything but it's not pretty.
Max: I'm gonna take your melted disfigured ponies AND SHOVE 'EM DOWN YOUR THROAT!
Big NO: Uttered when things go REALLY bad in a match.
Hidden Depths: Matt has a history degree and is a teacher in his day job. He manages to show this off in their BioShock Infinite playthrough several times.
Hypocritical Humor: Max tries to cover a new weapon for Modern Warfare 3 only for Doom to cut in and tell max to stop camping. Eventually Max hands Doom the controller and tells him to show him what's not camping. Guess what's the first thing Doom does?
Nice Guy: Max is this, really. He never has a bad thing to say about any opponent he faces online (no matter how outmatched or inept they are), and will heap large amounts of praise on them if they play well.
Precision F-Strike: Thrown around from time to time, though rarely by Max, unless he's feeling salty.
Rage Quit: Averted. And Max has a whole video explaining why no one should rage quit.
Matt Simmons came very close to this during his run in Mega Man 2: The Wily Wars especially after THIS
Red Oni, Blue Oni: With Max as the Red and Matt as the blue, although the lines are blurred.
Shout-Out: The end of Vanilla Marvel vs. Capcom 3The Online Warrior episode 7 plays the fanfare from Back to the Future with Doom coming in like Marty at the end of the second movie. The segment serves as tie in to the next episode, which has Assist Me featuring Wesker.
Title Drop: In Max's review of Injustice, Batman calls him and Doom "The Online Warriors."
Viewers Are Geniuses: Max is a very skilled player, so for a lot of new players a lot of what he says can go right over their heads. To correct this, Max has started creating a fighting game basic tutorial for beginners.
