Tropers/SamMax, on cleaning duty and making sure that things are [[ShownTheirWork accurate]] in this wiki. He may not always do a good job, but he'll at least try!

!!Tropes associated with Tropers/SamMax

* TheAtoner: If he does something particularly bad, he ''must'' do what he can to make up for it, even if it kills him!
* AuthorsSavingThrow: If he feels there is an issue with his statements, he will at least try to fix it.
* BerserkButton: Sexist and racist people. He views them as assholes at best, especially when it's a time when they ''should'' know better.
* BrainBleach: Some FanFic are so [[NightmareFuel ridiculously]] [[NauseaFuel disturbing]], there isn't enough of it in the ''world'' to remove it! Movies like ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' have [[FanDisservice certain scenes]] that require it as well. Also, he wants to use it to forget ''ComicBook/NovasAventurasDeMegaman'''s mere existence.
* CloudCuckoolander: At times.
* CrackPairing: Has come up with a few. However, among the pairings he doesn't like, he considers [[VideoGame/MegaMan Bass x Roll]] one, because he doesn't see why on Earth Roll would want to go out with someone who hates her brother and wants to kill him.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Would like to inform you that ''VideoGame/SonicLabyrinth'' doesn't exist! Sonic never wore boots that slowed him down, and even if he did, it wasn't a VideoGame! On a related note, there was no [[Nintendo3DS 3DS]] [[PortingDisaster version]] of ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld''. Only the WiiU version exists.
** ''ComicBook/NovasAventurasDeMegaman'' is just some poorly written DarkFic with its plot in [[RandomEventsPlot Crazyland]] most of the time. Even at their worst, {{Creator/Capcom}} would never approve of a ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' comic with nudity and violence, especially if it had [[NightmareFuel mutilation of girls]] involved in some form.
** What is this "''[[VideoGame/WarioMasterOfDisguise Wario: Master of Disguise]]''" you speak of? There wasn't a Wario game that forced you to use poorly implemented touch screen controls. Ever.
** ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen was]]'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen in the works]]...but only survived in the form of [[VideoGame/TheAmazingSpiderMan a video game]] which, bizarrely enough, is advertised as being based on [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan the first film]].
** As for the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', it's [[InvertedTrope inverted]] because, while the new stuff is definitely {{Canon}}, many of the old stories are still at least [[BroadStrokes partially canon]].
** ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' had its bathtub scene removed during production. [[BrainBleach Thank goodness for that]]!
* GatewaySeries: The ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' film was SoCoolItsAwesome that he's actually collecting graphic novels of the [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy comics]], and is thinking of getting a subscription to them.
* GuiltyPleasures: He finds ''HyperdimensionNeptunia'' to actually be enjoyable in spite of its flaws.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[TakeThatMe You'll see it on some discussions on this wiki]].
* InformedFlaw: Unless you met this guy in person, some of these tropes would appear as such.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Part of why he's into the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' franchise is because of [[TokenMiniMoe Roll]]. On an unrelated note, thanks to [[{{Film/Godzilla2014}} the 2014 film]]'s announcement, he's gotten into [[{{Franchise/Godzilla}} the]] TropeNamer [[{{Franchise/Godzilla}} himself]].
* LoonyFan: May not appear as such on the interweb most of the time, but in RealLife...depending on the work in question, [[{{Understatement}} that could be putting it lighly]]. He's been mellowing out over the years, but shades of it are still there.
* MagnumOpus: He considers ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' to be one not just of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, but of '''[[BoldInflation ALL]]''' the [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]] movies ever made! [[SoCoolItsAwesome He loved the film that much]]!
* MotorMouth: Can be this when talking about a VideoGame, a {{Film}}, a ComicBook, a piece of {{Literature}}, or even a FanFiction. At least, in RealLife.
* OldShame: Most of his fanfiction. He is ''so'' ashamed, he prefers not to speak of them, and he is very grateful that he wasn't dumb enough to post them on the internet. They are happily lost in the midst of time!
** He also typed in a DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck for ''[[VideoGame/WarioWare WarioWare Touched!]]'' [[CanonDefilement It was poorly thought out headcanon]] speaking in a time when he hadn't gotten a sufficient understanding of actual canon, and he feels that's not good enough to warrant a DMOS. It was removed as a result.
* PetPeeveTrope: A few, at least when poorly done:
** AbusiveParents: When it's there just for the sake of being there. He feels it should send AnAesop if it's done at all.
** AdaptationDecay: Downplayed, for while he does have some problems with it, he'd still take a well-written InNameOnly adaptation to a faithful adaptation that suffers from BadWriting.
** DarkerAndEdgier: Again, downplayed, because it can be done well, but it can be ''really'' jarring and nonsensical that the story would even ''exist'' if it's done badly.
** DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: If it's ''too'' dark, he'd much rather not bother with it.
** DevelopmentHell: Depending on the circumstances, this can range from understandable to just plain irritating.
** FanDumb: These guys make us look bad.
** HateDumb: If you're going to complain, don't post it on the internet and [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch post inaccurate reasons as to why]]. If you hate it, tell the author why you hate it exactly, or just ignore it altogether. [[AuthorTract Whew]]!
** IHaveNoSon: If it makes sense, it's not a problem (like when the parent's a good person while the offspring is an irredeemable CompleteMonster), but he hates it when he believe the reasons are stupid and/or jerkish at best. The latter tends to be in anime, and it's likely he'll think there's no reason the story couldn't work ''without'' it. He's tried to chalk it up as ValuesDissonance, but he can never get past the petty reasons for it, leading him to see the parents as {{Jerkass}}es and [[TheScrappy Scrappies]], especially since [[KarmaHoudini it's rare that they even get called out for their bullshit, let alone punished for it]].
** TheMasochismTango: Yes, he hates that {{Trope}}.
** NoExportForYou: If the products are said to be good or I am wanting it bad. If the products are bad, however, then it does not apply here.
** RealIsBrown: Where did they learn this?! (Although he is fine with it if it is PlayedForLaughs, or if the place(s) have been ravaged by years of ruin)
** SmallNameBigEgo: When it applies to RealLife, but fiction can be bad about it too
** TrollingCreator: Unless there's a [[FanDumb good reason for it]]. Or his trolling just makes him/her all the more loveable.
* TheScrappy: Many parents in anime who [[IHaveNoSon disown their kids]] for stupid or petty reasons, especially since [[KarmaHoudini being called out, let alone being punished for their bullshit is at best a rare occurrence]]. Not to mention when they ''do'' get punished, we're supposed to see it as a ''bad'' thing. [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic Instead]], he thinks [[KickTheSonOfABitch they got]] [[AssholeVictim what was coming to them]]. In fact, [[UnintentionallySympathetic he tends to feel more for the disowned offspring even when they're the]] DesignatedVillain.
** Also, that slug...[[BuffySpeak thing]] from the ''Anime/DiGiCharat'' specials, due to the fact that a joke involving him just wouldn't stop. By the time it did, it was several minutes too late to save it. Thank goodness the remaining specials [[PutOnABus got rid of him]].
* SelfDeprecation: He likes to do this a lot, to ensure he doesn't have [[SmallNameBigEgo an enormous ego]].
* {{Sequelitis}}: As seen in FanonDiscontinuity above, he doesn't consider ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' to be a very good movie. Contrast [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan its predecessor]], which, while not a masterpiece itself, was still a decent flick.
** Another example is ''[[VideoGame/WarioMasterOfDisguise Wario: Master Of Disguise]]'', a game with bad touchscreen controls you're forced to use whether you want to or not. Even sadder since we had to wait a long while between this and ''VideoGame/WarioWorld''. You can believe after the long wait, he expected better.
** The 3DS version of ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' had terrible level design that made the WiiU version (a decent, if not great game) look like a downright masterpiece in comparison. Sad, since the 3DS version of ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' was a fun game in spite of its flaws. He is hoping that ''[[VideoGame/SonicBoom Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal]]'' will at least be decent, if not excellent.
** Some regard ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'' as a better film. He thinks it suffers from this due to EndingFatigue where the movie seems like it'll end, but then it doesn't. it occurred too frequently not to notice. Fortunately, [[TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies the next film]] fixes that problem.
* SoBadItsGood: He's a big believer in it. Films like ''Film/PlanNineFromOuterSpace'' and ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' are contenders.
* SoOkayItsAverage: ''WesternAnimation/PacManAndTheGhostlyAdventures'' isn't a ''bad'' show, but it's nothing special, either.
** ''[[VideoGame/WarioWare Game & Wario]]'' is the weakest in the series, but it's not bad. That said, it has moments of uneveness that bump it down to this, for while it has some of the series best minigames, it also has some of its worst.
* SoapBoxSadie: He doesn't like seeing this, but admits that he's fallen into that trap more than once. He hopes it never, ever happens again, but he can't say for sure.
* SophisticatedAsHell: He may not use it, but he finds it [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments funny]].
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: While he actually doesn't consider ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'' a bad game, [[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2 its sequel/reboot]] fixed its flaws and improved on what it did right.
** After ''finally'' getting to play ''VideoGame/WarioLandShakeIt'', he can definitely say that while it's not as good as past ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' games, it's a ''huge'' step up from ''[[VideoGame/WarioMasterOfDisguise Wario: Master of Disguise]]'', mainly because it's better designed and utilizes the gimmicks a lot better.
* ThirdPersonPerson: This article only, though it slips up from time to time.
* TooGoodToLast: Considers Website/ShiftyLook to be this, especially their ''{{VideoGame/Klonoa}}'' and ''Franchise/WonderMomo'' comics. It only lasted three years, making the loss even sadder. It seems someone made a (seemingly incomplete) copy to let people KeepCirculatingTheTapes, but the site as it was is LostForever.
