Could someone start adding tropes to the LittleBigPlanet 2 folder that I created that's on the Main Let's Plays page? That Let's Play is already on the 7th part and I haven't seen anything yet. I'm really not good at thinking of tropes. I would rather leave it to the experts that have a grasp on that kind of stuff.

C'mon. Doesn't anyone know how to add anything to this page?

Siree, adding examples is not generally something that can be asked for. Sometimes, a page just doesn't get visited by fans that frequently. Also, it's been only 3 days.

Would it be worth it to add anything from the Runaway Guys stream that Jon hosted ( http://www.twitch.tv/protonjon/b/529783669 )? It wasn't technically part of their LPs, but it turned out to be quite a Fountain of Memes, especially Chugga X Daisy stuff, which I expect will become legendary in TRG lore.

Should "Wheel of Fortune" be listed a side collab or simply part of The Runaway Gaiden? They've used it as filler twice now, and it seems like it may happen again between projects in the future, but on the other hand it doesn't have its own playlist.

Are playlists a prerequisite? Because Mario Party 3's Duel Mode doesn't have its own list either; it's just part of the regular MP3 LP.

With how long Wheel of Fortune has gone so far, I'm thinking somebody should move it to Side Collabs.

Any way we can add Dokapon Kingdom's awesome moemnts to the Awesome page? I kinda feel NCS taking out the monster at the town and then taking out Chugga deserves a mention at least, as well as Chuggaa getting lucky and managing to take out the monster guarding the town (while he was at critical HP, might I add) by dealing exactly enough damage to kill the monster?

Why does my entry for Four Man Band keep getting erased? There are several examples of it on this page.

Because it's not the trope; a Five-Man Band must have all the archetypes on the page description. Smaller groups can be listed under The Team or various more specific tropes, provided they fit. The role of each person should also be explained in the example.

This reasoning is explained in the edit history.

But several Four Man Bands are on this very page, with the same style I put it in. In fact, the other examples don't even have all 5 tropes included, while mine does, though it keeps getting removed.

I can't find any other Four man Bands on this page — could you specify where they are?

Anyway, though, a Five Man Band needs five people — it can't be four people with one of them serving for two tropes.

  • sigh* Nevermind. They were erased as well by the time I started this discussion. There used to be one for New Super Mario Bros U, and Little Big Planet, but they're now erased.

From the description:
Their first collaborative Let's Play was of the original Mario Party, recorded when they attended Magfest 2011. It premiered February 5, 2011. The three of them were the only ones participating, and they promised more in the future with additional players beyond the core three. A year and a half later, they revisited the game for filler videos focusing on Minigame Island and Pot o' Skills/Minigame Stadium.

LP #2 was New Super Mario Bros. Wii, mostly recorded at PAX East 2011. A fourth player, JoshJepson, joined them for these recordings.

LP #3 was Super Smash Bros. Brawl's "Subspace Emissary", recorded at E3 2011 and at Jon's home in Canada, with a return to three players. After this was finished, they also held a Brawl tournament with 7 other guest players, one of whom was JoshJepson. The tournament was recorded after New Super Mario Bros. Wii's latter recording. The champion was ProtonJon.

LP #4 was Mario Party 2. The majority of this LP was recorded at Jon's house, and the rest was recorded at a hotel during Pax East 2012. They also went through the Mini-Game Coaster.

A Mario Power Tennis tournament came next, before LP #5. It had 6 guest players—three returning from the Brawl tournament and three newcomers. The champion of this tournament was Chugga.

LP #5 was Kirby's Return to Dream Land, with just the three of them (they had planned to have a guest player—implied to be JoshJepson—who couldn't make it due to a scheduling problem). Notably, this is their first LP of a game that does not feature Mario. It was recorded between two Paxes.

LP #6 was LittleBigPlanet, which, being a Playstation 3 exclusive title, is the first game they LP'd on a console other than Nintendo. Lucahjin was the guest player for this LP. The recording started at Pax Prime 2012, and was continued at Chugga's house.

LP #7 was Wii Party, which was started as filler before Little Big Planet. It was confirmed in the Little Big Planet finale that Wii Party would be continued as an actual Let's Play.

After this, they held a Super Smash Bros. 64 tournament, with 16 competitors. The champion of this tournament was Tyler from Wii Rike To Pray.

LP #8 was New Super Mario Bros. U, with JoshJepson returning as a guest player.

They then held a Mario Kart: Double Dash!! tournament, with 22 players on 11 teams. The winner of this tournament was KoopaKungFu.

In addition to the one-shot filler LP's, they also have some side collab projects that they update between projects and act as filler. Current projects in this vein include Fortune Street.


I feel like all of this from the description is a bit redundant, since we have an itemized list of their projects right below there. Can we just trim the fat here in order to keep the page slightly more manageable? (I'm fine with at least leaving the info on their first LP, though, since it is an important thing to mention.)

We're getting a lot of folders from the guys' projects and let's plays. I'm starting to think we should begin making separate pages, not just folders; maybe a page for their regular let's plays and a page for their extra stuff (side collabs, filler, tournaments, Thrown Controllers). Anyone else agree?

Alright, this kinda bugs me. In the latest episode of Little Big Planet (10 as of this writing), the Guys all speak properly, with posh accents, and never once yelling. Now that alone is weird enough, but the reason is even weirder. They say it's because they checked the comments on one of the early episodes and that fans were saying they were being more rude/racist/etcetera etcetera. Why would the Guys let their FANS of all people dictate the way they make a video? We know they read these pages and they know from experience that a good chunk of their fans are idiots! It's never stopped them before, so why now?
RLYoshi
11:58:55 AM Jan 1st 2013
They weren't letting the fans dictate the way they make a video. That particular video was their way of showing how listening to the trolls and haters would pretty much ruin what makes their videos funny. They were basically telling the trolls "okay, here's what happens when we listen to you guys, so shut up". If they were actually listening to the trolls, then episode 11 would have been the same way.

Can we please clean up the Quote page? No work ever warrants that many quotes. If we want to catalogue all of the funny/awesome/heartwarming moments, then that's what the funny/awesome/heartwarming pages are for.

I doubt any other work has this many quotes. Runaway Guys is only about a year old, imagine how many more quotes it would get in another year.

If we must have a lot of quotes, can we at least restrict it to fewer than five per LP?
DeathToSquishies

I kept checking back on that page now and then, it seemed like no new examples had been added for a while after "Ike is dead!" But yeah, if it's to the point where we now need folders for the quotes, I think it's time to cut it down to the most memorable ones (i.e. the first "don't eat the mushroom" reference, etc.)

Well the quotes page is fixed, but now I've noticed 99% of every example of funny moments under the Mario Party 2 tab on the Funny Moments page has a quote now. I even know of a time I added an example, then someone later added a quote.

I'm thinking I'm gonna renovate some there, too. There's no reason for that many quotes. Moments are fine, but it kind of takes the fun out of it when they're repeated back all the time on the page.

Since Mario Party 2 is getting its own folder separate from the original, shouldn't the Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tourney get its own folder? Or is the amount of tropes small enough that it can be packed with the Subspace Emissary? My reasoning is that Subspace is a completely different setup than the Tourney, and I personally don't want to go through the trouble filtering through the already large folder that is the SSBB Subspace section for the Tournament Tropes.
MosquitoMan

I felt the same way and made it two folders, but someone changed it back. But if you think it really should change, then by all means.

Shall Mario Party 2 have its own folder, or be condensed with Mario Party 1?
MosquitoMan
10:48:51 PM Feb 10th 2012
Since the page gets filled up faster than a bottle at a drink convention, I figure a separate folder would be best, so as not to overfill the existing one. I've also already taken the liberty of creating it.

In the final New Super Mario Bros Wii episode, Jon predicts something and it happens almost 10 seconds later. Is there a trope for that? (it happens at around 11:20)
JayZilla2830
04:14:37 PM Oct 15th 2011
It could be either Foreshadowing or Tempting Fate.
MosquitoMan
06:07:38 PM Jan 15th 2012
10 seconds it too short for foreshadowing I think, tempting fate sounds better.
RLYoshi
01:24:19 PM Jan 17th 2012
Tempting fate is when you predict something and then the opposite happens, such as "We're doing really good!" (sudden failure). If someone predicts something and it happens, rather than the opposite happening, that's possibly Genre Savvy.
MosquitoMan
06:20:08 PM Jan 19th 2012
No irony is when the opposite happens. Tempting fate is to say something will or might happen, and it happens. It can also cause the opposite but only if explicitly hoped for to not happen. Genre Savvy just means they're aware of the workings of their genre and use it to their advantage.

I'm making a characters page, but I don't know how to add it to the tabs at the top. How do I do that? This way, the "tropes pertaining to the guys themselves" can be moved onto that page, so we can make the main page smaller.
MosquitoMan
03:03:12 PM Jul 30th 2011
Never mind, I found out. But I still think it'd be a good idea to move those tropes to the characters page.

The main article has examples that apply just to Mario Party. Should we move these, or should we wait to see their next LP before doing that?
DeathToSquishies

If we start seeing tropes pop up in multiple LP folders, then yes, we'll make a General folder for the recurring tropes. Until then, this works well enough.

Honestly, after making this page, I didn't expect it would grow and flourish so quickly. The problem, though (despite how Beyond the Impossible and Crazy Awesome it is) is that all the examples on this page and the alternate pages have really become near Trope Overdosed, and their first LP isn't even fully posted on Youtube yet. The only thing I'm concerned about is how we're gonna organize all the examples once later LP's start coming. We've got like 5 examples to each trope now, at this rate, they're gonna have like fifteen to twenty in the near future.
Maniette
08:15:49 PM Mar 25th 2011
Maybe we can make topic folders for specific L Ps? And have a general folder for ones that do/will apply to a number of videos.
DeathToSquishies
09:40:52 PM Mar 25th 2011
I was considering making one section specifically for Character Tropes (as in, things that pertain to The Runaway Guys themselves on a regular basis, such as Big "WHAT?!" and Butt Monkey). That'd be a good place to start. Maybe later, organize examples under each LP, and put whatever tropes apply to multiple LP's in a general section.

Okay, how should we refer to the people here? The thing that bothers me is that there's no consistency. We should use one name for each person unless there's a good reason not to. Should we use their real names, usernames, or what? Any idea? This just started bothering me today.
LostHero

Chuggaaconroy's a bit long, so let's keep it as Chugga/a. Same with NCS. And ProtonJon can stay as is.
