Tropers / Dr. NoPuma

"You're the forum's cinnamon roll, Puma."

For added atmosphere, play the music from this clip while reading on.

...Yes, I know it's a short clip. ...Sorry. :<

If you have any complaints, read this first. If this does not solve the problem, go get ice cream, and see if you feel better then.

Alternatively, use one of these songs instead.

Hello, everyone! I'm DrNoPuma, but you can just call me Puma.

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. However, I'm considering changing my username to something simpler, like Circus Puma.

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: Napstablook, 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. I can't really explain why... looking through my old drawings and stuff, it seems that I liked clowns ever since I was a little kid. There's just something about the bright colors and fun personalities that I like.

And there are probably many others, but I just can't think of them right now.

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.

    Favorite tropes 

Pet Peeve Tropes

  • 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.

    Other favorites 
  • 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: Orange, white, red, blue, green, and purple.
  • 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).

Other stuff

    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:
  • 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.
  • Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: I like to find deeper meanings in works, even ones that are just meant to be silly. See this for example.
  • 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.
  • Holiday Mode: As TropesForever says, "Exaggerated. Any time within 12 months of Halloween is a good time for a Halloween avatar!" Which describes my attitude very well.
  • 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.
  • Innocently Insensitive: I've sometimes been known to unwittingly offend people. If I do this again, please know that I didn't mean it, and I am very sorry.
  • 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.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: According to Raspy Mink, who tells me not to be ashamed of it. Yeah, I guess it's not really "manly" to like things like clowns and music boxes... but I do anyway. :P
  • 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.

Troping my dreams

I'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.

One more thing: Until/unless a rainbow text color option is implemented on the forums, use this instead! [[red:]][[cinnamon:]][[gold:]][[green:]][[blue:]][[purple:]]
