YMMV / NationStates

Regarding the game itself:

Regarding the roleplaying section of the game:

  • Ass Pull: Surprisingly fitting trope to start with.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Murray the Evil Skull. He even calls this trope by name. That said, though, the only really evil things he does are put curses on people and sing country music.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: The Ryou Black Islands and all his previous incarnations.
  • Magnificent Bastard: The forum moderators are equal parts respected and hated.
  • Mary Suetopia: Somewhat averted by the game itself, which attempts to indicate that all nation types have their drawbacks, but often played painfully, painfully straight in roleplay.
  • Memetic Badass: Some of the older and more respected roleplayers are this.
    • On the General (ie off-topic) forum, Lunatic Goofballs has been practically deified. The mods responded by making him a mod.
  • "Stop Having Fun" Guys: A recurring issue over just about every kind of role playing you can imagine, but most often seen from players who yell at people using Rule of Cool things.

Regarding Forum 7, the casual off-topic place:
