YMMV / Roahm Mythril

  • Archive Panic: With over seventy-eight Robot Masters, plus several fortress/miscellaneous stages (all of which vary wildly in length/difficulty), watching the entire Perfect Run series can be qute daunting. His Battle Network videos are just as bad, with Mega Man Battle Network 4 alone reaching close to ninety episodes!
  • Badass Decay:
    • Elec Man went from a 9/10 to a 6/10 after Roahm found out a way to completely break his AI.
    • To a lesser extent, Dragon Nezumi in the Nezumiman runs got a few points docked from his difficulty rating after Roahm discovered he has a huge blind spot.
    • Averted with Bright Man, who kept his 10/10 rating even after a strategy was found that makes him less of a Luck-Based Mission (the "revenge strategy" requires some very precise timing without charge shots).
    • From a non-boss standpoint, Roahm frequently used a V3 AirMan chip he got early on in the Battle Network 2 LP, but he started to get less and less useful as the game progressed, to the point where he was eventually abandoned entirely.
  • Breather Boss:
    • The ONLY reason why he didn't give Ring Man's level a 10/10 is because Ring Man is one.
    • He also considers Alpha from Mega Man Battle Network 3 to be this so long as you have a cannon program advance in your folder.
  • Breather Level:
    • In his sense, when going through an easy Robot Master after defeating a hard one (i.e. Needle Man or Quick Man).
    • Speaking of Quick Man, he considers Mega Man 3's Wily Stage 1 a major example... where after the pain that was the Quick Man Doc Robot, he didn't even get hit once.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In Day 8 Part 4 of Mega Man Battle Network 2, "The Red-Eyed Woolly Spider?!!", Roahm clearly found the name of the titular creature ridiculously silly, so he made a Running Gag that every time the spider was mentioned, he's play a clip of his friends repeating its name in Parrot Exposition style followed by a Sting. Which would have been perfectly fine, if it wasn't accompanied by a full-screen close-up of a spider's face. Many commenters had this reaction (especially with it showing up three times over the course of the video, including as The Stinger).
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Despite "appearing" in the entirety of one video, there's been a lot of interest in OpRoahm.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Averted. While Roahm admits to disliking the Mega Man X series personally, he doesn't believe they're bad games, just not his type of thing. He's also one of the rare classic Mega Man fans who loves the Battle Network series.
  • Goddamned Boss:
    • Roahm only gave Power Piston from Mega Man 6 a 5/10 for difficulty, but found the boss long, drawn-out, and loud.
    • He also has this opinion on the Devil bosses, as they're very pattern-based (and easy for him to dodge once he has the pattern), but very long and drawn-out fights, with very short windows of vulnerability.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Roahm spent a good deal of time debating rather or not to take a January break to start off 2014. Then his appendix ruptured.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • It's hard not to feel fuzzy inside whenever he shows his appreciation for his fans, and their concern when life throws him curves.
    • Pretty much any time he mentions his "Mum." It's obvious he regards her very fondly, and every mention of her is in reference to nostalgia and happy memories, usually of playing video games together.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In the Pokémon Emerald No Evolutions Run, Roahm goes on a rant that Electric types should be immune to the Static ability, saying how he hopes that's changed in a future generation. Lo and behold, Pokémon X and Y did do this (in fact, it made Electric-types immune to paralysis in general).
    • At one point in Gag Reel 2, he ran afoul of the Windows Key. Three years later, he would run afoul of its older brother, the Alt Key.
  • Memetic Mutation: Quite a few, the most known example is the 1-Up Curse, which makes the 1-Ups out to be evil little things that want to kill you just to be useful instead of being just helpful items.
  • MST3K Mantra: Sometimes he'll point out something in the game he's playing and end it with "It's just a game, it's just a game..."
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Nightmare Retardant: Silent Hill is a nightmarishly horrifying series. When Roahm LPs a given game in it, it almost becomes humorous.
  • The Scrappy:
    • While Roahm likes most Robot Masters in some form or another (yes, even Quick Man), he dislikes Aqua Man. In his words, "He really has no personality beyond 'Hi, I'm incredibly annoying!'"
    • Mega Man Battle Network 3 gives him Chisao for being an annoying little kid, and BubbleMan.EXE and DrillMan.EXE for being incredibly annoying bosses.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Escort missions ("Baggage. Yay."), hopeless boss fights, and Mega Man Battle Network 3's Press program. The dragon is not particularly fond of any of these. He even calls the second of these "the cardinal sin" in Mega Man Unlimited, which ends with a "fight" against an invincible Zero.
  • Tear Jerker: His aunt dying. His videos on it don't help, as they explain that he's going on hiatus due to his depression from it.
  • That One Boss:
    • In the Perfect Run series, they're referred to as Nightmare Bosses. Basically, perfect tens are guaranteed nightmares, otherwise it's whoever has the highest rating in the game.
      • In order of difficulty rating, the Robot Masters considered such are Enker, Strike Man, Aqua Man, Time Man (7/10), Air Man, Buster Rod G, Plug Man (8/10), pre-revenge Elec Man (9/10), Needle Man, the Mega Man & Bass version of Tengu Man, Burner Man, Bright Man, Slash Man, and his original and most feared nightmare, Quick Man (10/10).
    • Averted with the Yellow Devil as Roahm didn't have a hard time with him (giving Wily Stage 1 a 4/10 mostly because of the sudden enemies like the Fleas/Kamadomas and Foot Holders). However, CWU-01P was this to him, being a completely Luck-Based Mission as far as perfect running it goes.
    • The Doc Robot forms of Quick Man and Wood Man. "That hitbox, man."
  • That One Level: He considers Quick Man's stage (for its One-Hit KO lasers) and Ring Man's stage (for its length, enemy placement and number of Mini Bosses) this.
