(While playing Final Fantasy
12, and seeing the
Tusken Raiders Fremen
(Later, upon seeing one of the Urtans has "Haste" cast on 'em;)
"Speed is a device of Shaitan!"
- Noodle Incident: That thing in the third grade. On Tuesdays. In the music room.
- Overly Long Gag: This page.
- Perma Stubble: Jonn cannot grow facial hair more substantial than a thin gotee. And even then the sides don't quite connect.
- Punny Name: His initials spell JAW. Ironically, Jonn doesn't talk much.
- Serious Business: People linking directly to large images on deviantART, instead of to the submission page. It really sets him off, since he remembers the days when people would do the same thing, just with dialup. When deviantART changed the way the site worked so one couldn't link directly to the page with the fullsize image on it, then people started up this new thing.
- Single-Issue Wonk: Don't mention piracy around him. Just...don't.
- Also, he gets really ticked off by people who use asteriks online to self-censor, (e.g. "d*mn") since it means someone wants to swear, but doesn't want to take responsibility for it. Either swear, use a euphemism, or don't swear at all.
- Token Minority: Subverted; Jonn is black, and so is most of his country. He does know a white guy, though. Who's gay.
- And after moving to England for Uni, he was not only Black Caribbean, which is a minority compared to Indian, Pakistani, and mixed race, according to the 2001 census, but he was also the only person he met with an American(sounding) accent.
- Wall Banger: Jonn sees people using the Digital Piracy Is Evil trope as a bludgeon to mock anyone who tries to get people not to pirate things, no matter how reasonable they are.
- To a lesser extent, any instance of Fan Myopia where people just link to a character's name.
