  • Action Series: Probably his favorite kind of comic or cartoon.
  • Anime: His default drawing style. He actually finds it difficult to draw differently.
  • Author Avatar: He tends to have a lot in common with his created protagonists. One (from which the username is derived) is basically him if he were Japanese.
  • Bilingual Bonus: If frusturated while out, will occasionally, making sure there's nobody around who likely understands either language, quietly curse in Mandarin or Japanese.
  • Catch Phrase: "Shway" and "is that so?"
  • Cos Play: A hobby.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Several examples.
    • Lost flight itinerary or hotel checkin papers? Photocopy.
    • Also uses photocopies for any printed lists of sightseeing.
    • Loud noise? Earplugs.
    • Keeps many tabs open at once in internet explorer.
    • Avoid parents seeing bought item they might not approve of? Hide carefully.
    • Really good drawing getting wrecked? Scan it quickly after finishing. Accidental deletion? Mail it to alternate email address, so the original, unedited will be retrievable.
    • Accidentally close tab or switch to other while editing? Copy the edit as it was being written.
  • Expy: Creations who aren't based on real life people tend to draw inspirations from other manga/anime or comic book characters.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: see Bilingual Bonus above.
  • Self-Insert Fic: See Author Avatar above.
  • Write Who You Know: Just as the protagonist from whom Nakayama90 derives his surname is essentially him in anime form, except that he's Japanese as a character and has a number of different traits, some other characters are based on people, some of whom unpleasant.
