!!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.
* AwesomeArt: There are various works he feels have this...
** Be it old or new, ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' can almost always be counted on for this.
** While the ConspicuousCG of ''[[Anime/{{Metropolis}} Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis]]'' is [[TechnologyMarchesOn rather dated]], the traditional animation holds up ''very'' well, even beating many modern anime productions.
** Creator/StudioGhibli. Hands down.
** Many comic books have this. Special mention goes to almost anything drawn by Ben Bates, but there's so many other artists as well.
** While the {{Fanservice}} may be problematic at times, there's no denying that the ''[[Franchise/{{Neptunia}} Hyperdimension Neptunia]]'' franchise has very well done art, even if it seems to suffer from OnlySixFaces syndrome at times.
** ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'' has some of the best animation, not just in the franchise, but in anime in general.
* BerserkButton: Sexist and racist people. He views them as assholes at best, especially when it's a time when they ''should'' know better.
** Betrayal. If you betrayed him...why? He trusted you...
* BetterThanCanon: Feels this way in regards to ''VideoGame/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' video game, which he feels was a much better sequel to [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan the first film]] than [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2 the actual film sequel]].
* BigYes: When he learned ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]'' shut down. Unfortunately...
** BigNo: Funimation had to lose some ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' licenses on the same exact day.
* 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.
** And don't forget some of the more horrifying examples of...some things he's seen. Especially when some of them clearly put a horrifying situation...and ''make fetish art out of it'', creating a TearJerker for [[TheWoobie the victim of the situation]] and making him create mental situations where whoever set it up '''[[LaserGuidedKarma really]]''' [[LaserGuidedKarma gets what's coming to them]] rather than [[KarmaHoudini getting away with it with no repercussions]], as is unfortunately the norm.
* BrokenPedestal: Sega had been heading this way a while...then ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]'' happened, destroying what pedestal there was left ''to'' destroy.
* 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.
* DorkAge: Where this started for the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series is a source of debate. He's not sure where it started exactly, though he will say that in hindsight, despite [[HopeSpot what it seemed like at first]], ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' and ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' were but lucky flukes rather than a true return to form, seeing as how they didn't take long to go back to old habits [[WhatAnIdiot despite having no reason they wouldn't know that it's a bad idea]]. If anything, [[FromBadToWorse it got worse]] after ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld''.
* EvenBetterSequel: The original ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' was already a great game, but ''Puyo Puyo Tsu'' made it even better. On a very related note, ''Puyo Puyo Fever 2'' is the best game in the entire series, in his opinion, though ''Puyo Pop Fever'' gets this for introducing [[TheCutie Amitie]] to the world.
** ''VideoGame/WarioLand4'' is this to the previous games. Its own successors haven't matched its greatness, though ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'' comes pretty close.
* FalseFriend: He's had a few. Very rarely do we go back on good terms after TheReveal, and even ''then'', there's no guarantee that they've actually learned their lesson.
* 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]]. Spider-Man himself would have to wait four more years before he appeared in [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar another movie]], and another to get [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming another to himself]].
** 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]]!
** What is this "''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]''" you speak of? Nobody in their right mind would ''dare'' to make a DolledUpInstallment of the ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' series in this day and age, nope. Especially not one that looks generic as hell.
*** [[HilariousInHindsight Hilariously]], since the game's official servers are down, this part of the franchise's history is easier to ignore, at least where playing the games is concerned...though he'll never allow Sega to [[NeverLiveItDown live it down]].
* FranchiseOriginalSin: Many a franchise has gotten worse over the years, or even in only two years...and at least some of them are thanks to issues that have been there from the start.
** ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' had some issues with characters that could be unlikeable at times, and a dependency on romance. However, he didn't feel like it got in the way the first time. ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'', undpfortunately, didn't actually fix these flaws. More like, made the characters more unlikeable and the romance arc [[RomanticPlotTumor took up too much screen time as well as being more badly written than before]].
** The Pokemon anime always had issues with Ash being an idiot. Thing is, in the earlier seasons, it was somewhat forgiveable when you remembered that he was only getting started. Unfortunately, he's had years of experience and ''still'' makes newbie mistakes.
** Despite what [[NostalgiaFilter some nostalgics]] say, the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series never had the most consistent quality with its games. However, it used to be that at the very least, the poorer quality ones were spinoffs. Unfortunately, as time went on, the lower quality actually bled into the main installments.
* 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, at least 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]].
** He admits [[{{Moe}} the modern artstyle]] is part of why he's into the ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' series. Especially [[TheCutie Amitie]].
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: He's prone to this at times. Hope he won't have to rely on bootlegs...he'd rather avoid bootlegs if at all possible. Otherwise...damn you distributors/[[ScrewedByTheLawyers lawyers]]/whoever is to blame!
* 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]]!
** In terms of individual characters of all the fiction he's seen, while he can't pinpoint it, he considers [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Amitie]] to be the greatest character of them all. Of course, that's his opinion.
* MoneyDearBoy: Gotta work to pay the bills, after all.
* 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.
* NeverLiveItDown: ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]'' may be LostForever, but he will ''always'' use it as a case against Sega. It shouldn't have been made in the first place.
* 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.
** Even some entries on this page have become this; let's just say he's become a bit more sympathetic or the FanDumb and HateDumb. Sure, what they do is still wrong, but he now has firsthand experience as part of those. As a result, those ignorant parts of the PetPeeveTrope entry are gone.
* OutOfOrder: He's [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] this from time to time. It boils down to him playing the sequels before starting the original.
** That said, he hates it when box sets, like some of the older ''Film/JamesBond'' Blu-Ray box sets, do that. At least with those, the film's were in individual cases so you could follow [[WebVideo/YouKnowWhatsBullshit the Bullshit Man's]] suggestion and throw out the boxes, put the films in their proper order, but unfortunately, it doesn't apply to all of them.
* PeripheryDemographic: As time goes on, it's becoming rarer and rarer that he's even part of the target audience for a series. At most, he ''was'' part of the target audience when he first got into it.
* 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.
** 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.
** RonTheDeathEater: Rarely is this even understandable, like when "being evil" is all we had when the fanfic was written, thus making it accurate to what existed at the time, or more understandable motives for seemingly evil actions are [[AllThereInTheManual in a manual]] not everyone read. Thiese are inexcusable most of the time, however. More frequently than not, this tends to happen to characters who, if they were in that situation in canon, [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy would want their beloved to be happy]], rather than [[CharacterDerailment turn into psychos]]. Seriously, why do that?
** 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.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: He's gonna get mauled for some of these, but...
** ''[[Manga/YuYuHakusho Yu Yu Hakusho: Spirit Detective]]'' is a pretty poor game with poor graphics and bad gameplay. On the plus side to it, however, it ''does'' follow the plot of the first season pretty faithfully...but even then, if you want to relive season one, you'd be better off buying the UsefulNotes/{{DVD}} and/or UsefulNotes/BluRay releases instead.
** ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'' is a pretty boring action game. He doesn't see what everyone else saw in it.
** ''VideoGame/TronEvolution'' was also a pretty boring action game. Yeah, given the gap between [[Film/{{Tron}} the original film]] and [[Film/TronLegacy its sequel]] both [[TimeSkip in]] and [[SequelGap out of universe]], an {{Interquel}} was probably necessary, but it could have been better.
* TheRedStapler: If a character he likes doesn't have a plush...he may commission one special, though he's gotta keep his finances in mind.
* 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]].
** Gwen Stacy entered this realm in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'', thanks in no small part to her [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a bit of a level in jerkass]] since [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan the last film]]. Being one of two member's of the film's RomanticPlotTumor doesn't help one bit. Shame, really; she was fine enough [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan last time]].
** Nearly everyone in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is this. This contributes greatly to [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim him wondering what people see in these characters]].
* SeasonalRot: The ''Pokemon'' anime, from what he recalls (though maybe his NostalgiaFilter is talking; wouldn't be the first time) started off good...then [[StatusQuoIsGod the status quo became unbreakable]] to the point of irritation. Even in the ''Black & White'' seasons, he didn't see a whole lot change. The fact that the writers seem to be big believers in the AnimationAgeGhetto doesn't inspire his confidence even a tiny bit.
* 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. To be exact, it didn't actually fix the first film's flaws at all. Rather, [[FranchiseOriginalSin it took the first film's flaws and made them worse]]. While he would have given ''Franchise/TheAmazingSpiderManSeries'' another chance, he wasn't sad to see it go in favor of an [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] [[ContinuityReboot reboot]], starting with Spidey's appearance in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' and continuing in the solo film ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.
** 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.
** Some regard ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'' as [[EvenBetterSequel a better film]]. He, on the other hand, thinks it's a worse film due to EndingFatigue where the movie seems like it'll end, but then it doesn't. It occurred too frequently not to notice, to the point that when the credits finally ''did'' roll, he was surprised because he expected another fakeout. Fortunately, [[TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies the next film]] fixes that problem, and is a better film for it.
* {{Shipping}}: He dabbles in it from time to time. Favorite parings include [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Amitie x Sig, Arle x Schezo]], and [[VideoGame/ApeEscape Spike x Helga]].
* 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]].
* StrawmanHasAPoint: He's seen cartoons where the KidHero disobeys an order from an older figure in order to save the day. They usually respond by berating him for disobeying the order, and the kid either responds by sighing or running away in anger. More frequently than not, it's the older figure we're supposed to side with...but it falls very flat, because more frequently than not, if the kid ''didn't'' disobey them, they'd be '''dead'''. Thus, instead of the [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Reasonable Authority Figures]] we're supposed to see them as, they come off as [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bastards]] who can't even be bothered to acknowledge when their judgement is wrong. Couldn't sometimes [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight doing the right thing even if it goes against orders]] be a good message in itself? If you said yes, then you're not the writers of those cartoons.
* SuperlativeDubbing: He's usually tolerant of even highly contested dubs, but there are a few he feels '''really''' hit the ballpark.
** If nothing else, Amitie's voice actress, presumably Evelyn Huynhin, in the English dub of ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Puyo Pop Fever]]'' absolutely '''nails''' the role, capturing her bubbliness and cheerfulness and even her irritation at things perfectly. Then again, he adores the character, so he may be biased.
** ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'' has an amazing dub cast, with Creator/SonnyStrait's Lupin perfectly capturing the silly charm of the character, Creator/ChristopherSabat's Jigen, if nothing else, perfectly fitting him in the darker setting, Creator/MichelleRuff as Fujiko herself, and Creator/RichardEpcar as the more badass Zenigata. They nail it very well, and feels that Sonny doesn't get enough respect.
* 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.
** As he noted up in the {{Sequelitis}} entry, ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'' had serious issues with EndingFatigue. Thankfully, ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'' cured the series of that, and was much better off for it.
* TakeThat: In this article a few pop up; ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' and ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Cranky]]'' ''[[DolledUpInstallment Food Friends]]'' seem to be his favorite targets (the latter definitely).
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with ''VideoGame/SonicRiders''; he's seen people say it's a ripoff of ''VideoGame/MarioKart''. He thinks they might have actually made a better game if they actually ''did'' copy ''Mario Kart's'' formula.
* 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.
** ''[[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Puyo Puyo]]'s'' North American run as a whole qualifies as well. Damn you, Sega!
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: This is how he feels about the cast of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2''. He hates the film, but the acting isn't one of the reasons; he feels the actors did a good job with the poor material they had.
* TraumaCongaLine: Has been through waaaaaaay too much betrayal in four months alone. Will it ever stop?
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: He's heard that ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' [[DeaderThanDisco has been losing fans]] due to SeasonalRot. He considers ''Total Drama Island'' (the first season) to be one of the worst cartoons out there, thanks in no small part to [[UncannyValley ugly character designs]], [[OffModel poor animation]] and [[TheScrappy unlikeable characters]], making him less interested in how it's losing fans and more interested in how it ''got'' those fans in the first place, seeing as how hearing about the SeasonalRot sounds less like [[JumpingTheShark a good show gone bad]] and more like [[SerialEscalation something that was unwatchable to start with somehow becoming even more unwatchable]]. Basically, it went FromBadToWorse, which is actually impressive, all things considered.
* WinBackTheCrowd: At least, ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' and ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' won him back on Creator/{{Sega}} as a whole. [[VideoGame/SonicLostWorld Sadly]], [[SoOkayItsAverage it]] [[VideoGame/SonicBoom didn't]] [[ObviousBeta last]] [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo too]] [[DolledUpInstallment long]].
