"You're the forum's cinnamon roll, Puma."Welcome to the page that I spend way too much time editing! I'm a guy who lives somewhere in the US and was a fan of this website a long time before finally getting my account on March 28, 2015. Before that, I just lurked around on here, reading pages. In case you're wondering where my username comes from, it actually has nothing to do with Dr. No. It's a nickname my parents call me because one time, when I was signing up for another website, I wanted my username to be Dr. Puma because I like pumas and other big cats, and I sometimes likes to act like a Mad Scientist. Where the No part came from, I don't remember. I want to work in the entertainment industry, and I'm especially interested in art, animation, and storywriting. However, I'm not sure yet which medium I want to work in. Still, I dream of my own works getting pages on This Very Wiki someday! I go to many different parts of the wiki, but I can usually be found on the Trope Launch Pad, or on the Just for Fun threads in the Forums, especially Forum Games. Since some other tropers are doing it too, here are three characters that I think best describe me: Clawhauser, Klonoa, and the Mayor. If you've seen some of my work on this wiki before reading this, or you read the information below, you may have noticed that I have some sort of affinity for clowns, circuses, and similar things. Kind of strange, considering that I used to be scared of clowns, just like most kids. For a while I couldn't remember how it started, but now I think I know:
open/close all folders
(For the best effect, listen to this while reading the following.) Now that I think about it, maybe I have always kinda liked clowns. I got freaked out when I saw them in real life, but I do remember drawing pictures and writing stories about clowns back in elementary school. All of the following happened in my early middle school years. That's when I got Super Paper Mario, and I was introduced to Dimentio. For some reason, I was far more interested in him than the other characters in the game, even before I learned that he was the true final boss. I just liked his design, his leitmotif, etc. Also, it took me a long time to figure out that Dimentio was a boy. I seriously thought he was a girl, and I may have been kind of in love with him. And then one day, I was reading a Reader's Digest magazine when I saw a little preview for The Night Circus. I thought it because it reminded me of Dimentio. Some time later, I went to my school library and saw that book in the "New Books" section. Without hesitation or thought, I grabbed it and checked it out. I remember another incident that added even more fuel to the fire. One of my friends was having a party at a bowling alley, but we accidentally went to the wrong one. I remember my dad calling my friend's parents, trying to get everything sorted out. Because I had nothing else to do (This was before I had a cell phone!) I looked at the arcade to see what games they had. That's how I discovered CarnEvil. I never played the game, I just watched the demo. I thought it was terrifying because of the blood and zombies, yet I couldn't stop watching. I loved how the carnival rises up from the ground, and although the flying clown head scared me at first, I still thought he was pretty cool. Later, I looked it up on the Internet and learned all about it. I learned that the clown head's name is Umlaut, and he's now my favorite character in the game! I'm sure there were more incidents like these that added to my bizarre fascination, but that's all I remember.

And there are many, many works that I want to see, whether they've already been released or not. I used to have a list of these works, but I got tired of updating it.
- Asshole Victim: Sure, it's a little overused, but it's so satisfying.
- Badass Cape: Capes are cool. I have one that I wear on Halloween, but I wish I could wear it all the time.
- Bedsheet Ghost: Spoopy and cyoot.
- Big Bad Ensemble: I love it when there's more than one main villain, although I wouldn't do more than three at once.
- Big Damn Heroes: Kind of overused and predictable, but I still love these moments. I really hate it when the Big Damn Heroes are unable to help the hero.
- Bright Is Not Good: This trope has produced many great villains!
- By the Lights of Their Eyes: Whether it's played for laughs or creepiness, I think it looks really cool, and I wish we could do this in real life.
- Classic Villain: I wish there were more of these in modern works.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Maybe they're becoming a little too common nowadays, but I think they're still really interesting and entertaining villains.
- Creepy Circus Music: I love creepy music, and I love circus music, so...
- Dark Is Not Evil and Light Is Not Good: Though I still like Dark Is Evil and Light Is Good too.
- Dark Reprise: But only when the reprise is a Villain Song. :P
- Defanged Horrors: My favorite type of horror.
- Dem Bones: I love spooky scary skeletons!
- Evil Laugh: The best ones are the really silly ones, like this.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: See By the Lights of Their Eyes, except for the part about it being played for laughs.
- Inkblot Cartoon Style: I just really love this art style, probably because it's associated with Creepy Jazz Music.
- Last-Second Chance: If I was a fictional hero, I imagine I would do this all the time. It's always a good idea to try and convince the villains to make a Heel–Face Turn. See if you can redeem them, and if you can't, then fight them.
- Man-Eating Plant: They're terrifying, but at the same time, they're so cool!
- Messianic Archetype and Satanic Archetype: I love Biblical imagery like this.
- Noble Bird of Prey: I love birds of prey! I see a lot of hawks in real life, and I always love watching them.
- Panthera Awesome: But of course! Why do you think I named myself after one? :P
- Psychopathic Manchild: These characters tend to be very entertaining. I especially like Count Olaf because he is an excellent balance between "psychopathic" and "manchild".
- Pumpkin Person: "I AM the Pumpkin King!"
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Red eyes look cool. Need I say more? :P
- Scary Stitches: I just think they look pretty cool.
- Self-Deprecation: My absolute favorite type of humor. I like doing it myself, and I like it when other people and works do it to themselves.
- Things That Go "Bump" in the Night: I just really like these monsters for some reason.
- Villain Song: Usually my favorite songs in musicals. I look forward to the villain singing whenever I watch one.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: Admittedly, I don't outright hate this trope (I think even some villains with little personality or motivation can be cool and interesting in other ways), but I would like to avoid it in my own works.
- Horny Nosebleed: I hate this trope more than I can say. I just don't understand why anime tries to make nosebleeds look cute, or like it's a good feeling. As someone who actually gets nosebleeds a lot, I can tell you that it is a horrible feeling.
- Jukebox Musical: I have mixed feelings on this one. On one hand, if done right, these can be pretty entertaining, but more often, this trope seems a bit cheap and uncreative. I'd rather see original musical numbers. Besides, you know what this trope usually means? Either No Song for the Wicked, or a villain song with Soundtrack Dissonance!
- No Song for the Wicked: I can see why this trope exists, but really, it's more fun when the villain does sing. Scar was a very elegant, high-and-mighty character, and he got a great villain song!
- One-Word Title: Similar to Jukebox Musical, I have mixed feelings. Some works (like Splatoon) have very creative one-word titles, but other times, it seems pretty lazy. It doesn't help that this trope is everywhere nowadays.
- Soundtrack Dissonance: Again, this is probably mainly because I like scary, dramatic music.
- Animals: Big cats in general, foxes, wolves, hyenas, bears, weasels, mice, rats, bats, walruses, seals, octopuses, crabs, jellyfish, starfish, vultures, owls, peacocks, ducks, and many others.
- Colors: Blue, white, green, orange, and red.
- Monsters: Ghosts, Things That Go "Bump" in the Night, skeletons, pumpkin people, werecreatures, aliens, cryptids (such as Sasquatch, chupacabras, etc.), kitsunes, and most monsters from Greek mythology (especially the chimera and the Minotaur)
- Elemental Powers: Light, water, ice, electricity, air, plants, and poison.
- Musical instruments: Pipe organ, music box, piano, calliope, violin/cello/etc, and accordion.
- Music genres: Classical, jazz, and soundtracks for movies/video games/etc. I'll listen to almost anything, though.
- Genres in general: Comedy, fantasy, adventure, action, mystery, and musical (mainly for the Villain Songs).
Tropes that apply to me
- Ambiguous Disorder: I know I'm somewhere on the autism spectrum, but as far as I know, we're not sure where exactly. When I was 3, my parents took me to a doctor who basically gave up on me and diagnosed me with PDD/NOS, then listed a lot of life skills and other things that I would never be able to do. Aaaaaaand I have been able to do most of those things, although I do have trouble with some of them (see No Social Skills below).
- Author Appeal:
- Characters who are scary on the outside, but actually really nice. Especially when they're tragic and misunderstood.
- Chubby characters, mainly Big Fun and Gentle Giants.
- Similarly, big animals. I love bears, elephants, walruses, hippos...
- Clowns, circuses, etc. There are Monster Clowns that I like, but I mostly prefer Non Ironic Clowns.
- Similar entertainment-based, colorful objects and places, like puppets, movie theaters, casinos...
- Big Eater: I don't like food... I LOVE it. I have so many favorite foods that I can't decide on one, and my parents have often joked about how much I eat (although I'm far from being the only big eater in my family.)
- The Ditherer: So, so much. It's most obvious with my avatars: I can't decide at all which one I want to use, and I usually switch every couple hours. This also applies to many other things, like how I'll often side with the first opinion I hear, unless I really disagree with it.
- The Ditz: I see myself as this. I misunderstand almost everything, I stumble a lot while talking and have trouble thinking of what to say... yeah. At least on here, I can play it down as something funny.
- Funny Character, Boring Actor: I like acting like a Large Ham on here, but I'm actually much more quiet and reserved in real life. For some reason, I find it easier to speak my mind when I'm typing than when I'm talking. But you wanna know how online!me and real!me are alike? We're both pretty optimistic, and we're both idiots.
- Giggling Villain: My parents and siblings sometimes joke that my laugh sounds creepy, though I'm much better at doing a creepy little chuckle than a full-on, loud laugh. Still, I do it every time I don't think anyone can hear me.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: I do this a lot. "Crap" is the only word I commonly use that even comes close to being a curse word. I don't mind when other people curse, though.
- The Hyena: Almost anything will make me laugh. I was in a Drama class one year in school, and when the members of each group were evaluating the other members, this is what his group had to say about me: "You have to stop laughing at all the lines." (Or something like that.) I don't laugh very loud, though.
- Myers–Briggs: INFP, according to a quiz.
- Neutral Good: According to a quiz.
- Nightmare Retardant: To me, any Ominous Music Box Tune is this. I just love music boxes and their beautiful sound so much that it's impossible for me to be scared of them.
- No Social Skills: This is why I describe myself as a Funny Character, Boring Actor. I don't know why, but it's just so much easier for me to speak my mind when I'm typing than actually talking.
- Non-Indicative Name: Unfortunately, I am not a puma or a doctor. I'm also not Dr. No (although I have seen a few other 007 movies, and I like them.)
- Pungeon Master: I love Incredibly Lame Puns, and I try to use them whenever possible.
- Soft-Spoken Sadist: As mentioned before, I'm actually pretty quiet in real life, so this trope usually applies when I play video games. I love Video Game Cruelty Potential. See also Giggling Villain above. That trope also applies more strongly when I play video games.
Note that most of my voice headcanon lists are works in progress. Klonoa The Nightmare Before Christmas
- The Easter Bunny didn't die. Lock, Shock, and Barrel did take it to Oogie Boogie and offered it to him, but instead, he got mad at them for kidnapping the wrong guy, and demanded that they bring Santa, just like Jack did.
- Birdo is female. I prefer that interpretation because it's the simplest.
- Staya: Jacksepticeye's voice for Gregg
- Peter: I'm not sure, but I feel like he should definitely have a "tough guy" kind of voice.
- Odette: Navi
- Walter: A somewhat high-pitched male voice with a British accent. I know what I want the voice to sound like, but I can't think of a character to describe it.
- Sera: Pearl Forrester
- Glass Dragon: Mufasa
- Whiskers: Gideon Gray (his adult voice, that is)
- Skid: Putt-Putt
- Lori: Dot
- Wilson: The Tattletale Strangler
- Stella: The Stitch Sisters
- These are the voices that I imagine each character having:
- Flowey: The brown ferret for his normal faces, and Umlaut for his scary faces.
- Toriel: Muriel Bagge, and keep the Scottish accent.
- Napstablook: I can't think of a specific character right now, but for some reason, I imagine him having a Surfer Dude voice. Maybe Mordecai?
- Sans: Blails
- Papyrus: Skeletor (of course)
- Undyne: Lord Dominator
- Alphys: Peridot (This was Troper No. 9001's idea)
- Mettaton: Maximilian Pegasus
- Asgore: Mufasa
- Chara: Circus Baby
- Omega Flowey: Melvin
- Asriel: Russell, maybe?
- Asriel's One-Winged Angel forms: Sr Pelo's voices for them
- Temmie: Unikitty
- Nice Cream Man: Fix-it Felix
- Burgerpants: Conker
- Monster Kid: [[The Incredibles The kid who says "That was totally wicked!"
- Muffet: Harley Quinn
- Bratty and Catty: ?
- Gerson: Cranky Kong
- Onionsan: Toad (this was Troper No. 9001's idea too)
- So Sorry: Thomas the 18th Century Boy

Troping my dreamsI'm very interested in dreams, and I try to remember my own whenever I can. I've written some of them down on the Weird dreams thread in Yack Fest. Now, here are some tropes that I think apply to my dreams.
- Adaptational Heroism: In contrast to the second bullet under Adaptational Villainy below, in this dream, Circus Baby was a friendly Genki Girl.
- Adaptational Villainy:
- All or Nothing: With my dreams, it seems like I either remember enough about the dream to describe it vividly, or I don't remember it at all.
- Darker and Edgier:
- In the Calvin and Hobbes dream mentioned under Adaptational Villainy above, the comic got an animated film adaptation that was surprisingly dark. Interestingly, kablammin45 had a similar dream, but their version of the movie was much closer to the source material.
- This dream took Super Solvers: Midnight Rescue, a kid's game with subtle Fridge Horror, and turned it into a full-on horror game.
- Denser and Wackier: This dream was about a Spider-Man movie where the Vulture was an Adaptational Wimp, Spider-Man learned to fly by flapping his arms, and more.
- Lighter and Softer: I once had a dream where the cast of Sparklecare, a webcomic about a Crapsaccharine World hospital, was genuinely friendly. There were still disturbing scenes, but they weren't caused by any characters from the comic.
- Magnum Opus: I'm very pleased at how well I was able to remember and describe this dream.
- Massive Multiplayer Crossover:
- In general, my dreams mostly involve fictional characters. I've seen characters from Team Fortress 2, Five Nights at Freddy's, The Nightmare Before Christmas, some comic book superheroes, and many more. I've also had many dreams where I met other tropers, such as this one with Beverly and this one with Cailleach.
- This trope even happened in one specifc dream, combining characters from Animaniacs, an elephant who was supposedly from Animaniacs but was really just made up for this dream, an elephant who was supposedly from a different cartoon, but was probably also made up for the dream, Looney Tunes, Batman: The Animated Series, The Batman... and Big Hero 6.
- Monster Clown: Why are all the clowns in my dreams evil? As you probably know by now, I actually like clowns...
- The Movie: I had a dream where there was a Don't Hug Me I'm Scared movie. With Neil Patrick Harris as one of the villains!
- Plot-Irrelevant Villain: I had a dream where my family and I were in a Christmas movie taking place at our house... and the "villains" of the movie were some lions all the way in the African wilderness. Needless to say, they had nothing to do with our story.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Once when I was sick in real life, I had a dream where my character was also sick.
- Recurring Character: Although, as noted under Massive Multiplayer Crossover, I see a lot of fictional characters in my dreams, there are some who have appeared several times:
- Recycled Script: As noted here, I have a lot of dreams where I'm suddenly at a new school, and have no idea where to go.
- Stealing the Credit: A certain politician (who I chose not to name because of Rule of Cautious Editing Judgementnote did this to me here, claiming that he had saved an entire video game world from a giant monster when it was really me (and Wario, who teamed up with me) who did it.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: According to this dream, Joka was a cute, innocent little teddy bear before turning evil and allowing a mad scientist to monster-ify him.
- Villain Song: In this dream, LEGO Joker (who insisted on calling himself "The Devil" just to try and make himself seem scarier) sang one with a variety of other villains. It sounded very similar to "Bad Day" and it was about the villains reflecting on their past failures, but deciding that this time, they would succeed.
My characters in roleplays
- Put on a Bus: Happens often, due to me being busy and often losing track of what's happening in each thread, getting left behind and finding it hard to get back in. I do try for The Bus Came Back sometimes, though.
Puma (We All Work in an Office)
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: His attempt to make a mascot costume was somewhat creepy.
Puma (Tropers: The Series)
- Non-Ironic Clown: Sometimes works as a birthday party clown. Hates the stress of the job, but still enjoys entertaining people.
ZuccaMy character in "We work at an Interdimensional Pizza Place". He is an alien who resembles a cat or ferret who is just getting a job at the pizza place.
- Bilingual Bonus: His name is the Italian word for "pumpkin"... mainly because I just like the word.
- Naïve Newcomer
- Rubber Man: Can stretch his neck, arms, and legs to a ridiculous extent.
Jack/Puma (We're in a Haunted School)
- The Medic: Has shown interest in becoming this, as he's not a good fighter.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: In this story, Puma is a nickname for my real name, Jack. Jack isn't my real real name, though.
FelisMy character in "We're a League of Villains". He started out as a mysterious, quirky man in a cat costume who can float and teleport... but often finds himself disappearing. But I later decided to change this, and had him turn into an actual, female cat.
- Cats Are Magic: An anthropomorphic cat who can fly and teleport... but not always at will.
- Cats Are Mean: Subverted. She's part of a supervillain team, and part of her wants to act evil... but deep down, she's a real softie who cares for everyone.
- Composite Character: He initially described himself as a cross between Schrödinger's Cat and the Cheshire Cat. Following his transformation and gender change, however, he's going in a different direction, although she does occasionally show traits of those two.
- Cosmic Retcon: I wanted to change the whole "silly guy in a fursuit" thing, so Beverly suggested that I make it because of Felis' Power Incontinence, taking her to Another Dimension that changed her dramatically.
- Curtains Match the Window: Both her hair and her eyes are a bright reddish purple.
- Fat Cat: In costume only at first, but later becomes a real, anthropomorphic one.
- Furry Female Mane: Ironically, she lacked one when she had just a costume, but she gained one when she became a real cat.
- Gender Bender: Started out male, but was turned female through mysterious means.
- Plucky Comic Relief: In a way. She's hardly malicious in nature, acts a bit awkward, and can't even control her powers.
- Power Incontinence: The reason why he tends to disappear for long periods of time.
