Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateVHSQuality: Used on various projects of his, most notably on ''Cinemassacre Rental Reviews''.


* MeanCharacterNiceActor: The AVGN is a psychotic ragehead who swears profusely and destroys game cartridges that frustrate him. He's also capable of some truly epic burns and TheReasonYouSuck speeches. James himself, however, is a soft-spoken, unassuming man who seems like the nicest guy.

Added DiffLines:

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Has more than once said he has ADD. It is unclear if he has been clinically diagnosed as having it or if he's just using it as shorthand for saying he is easily distracted. During the ''Cinemassacre Rental'' about ''WesternAnimation/MortalKombatTheJourneyBegins'', he mentioned that he hates watching movies on his computer because he immediately starts clicking around and can't stay focused on the film.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousEnding: In the "Cinemassacre Video" about ''Film/ErnestGoesToJail'', James recalled that when he first watched the movie as a kid, he thought Ernest ''died'' after falling to Earth, since the movie rolls the credits immediately after Ernest gives a one-liner and collapses.


* MeanCharacterNiceActor: If you only know him for the Nerd's acidic reviews and sense of humor, you'll be surprised to find out how generally cool-headed James is when out of character. Even when ''James and Mike Mondays'' brings back one of the "shitty games that suck ass", he is more amused than genuinely pissed to play it (or watch Mike play it, as the case may be).

* ArchivePanic: Invoked; James never watched ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' as a kid, and recently decided to play catch-up in order to review the [[Film/PowerRangers2017 reboot film]]. But he freaked out when he learned how long the series is, and that's not even counting the original Japanese series that it takes footage from. Even limiting himself to just the first season, he had to binge watch ''sixty episodes''.

* OlderThanHeLooks: He still looks to be in his twenties when he's actually ''38''.

* OlderThanHeLooks: He still looks to be in his twenties when he's actually ''38''. It really shows in the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' episode of AVGN, when the Nerd goes back in time and meets his earlier incarnations (which are first shown through StockFootage, then played by himself). He hardly looked different than his decade-earlier videos, save for the haircut.


Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: Invoked in his comparison of Franchise/{{Dracula}}'s film adaptations with the [[Literature/{{Dracula}} book]]. He dissects each movie (at least the ones that are straight adaptations, anyway, which reduces the field to 12 films) in search of the book's plot points and character translations. In the end, ''Film/CountDracula1977'' and ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' were the closest ones he found (the former winning out by a tiny margin), even with the creative liberties each work took (such as, the former making Arthur Holmwood and Quincey Morris a CompositeCharacter, and the latter explicitly connecting Dracula to UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler).


** Anyone watching the episodes of AVGN with Lloyd and the Guitar Guy with keen ears and eyes can notice James losing his composure with some of the things they say.

Added DiffLines:

* WithLyrics: The second intro sequence to ''Cinemassacre Video'' takes the Fresh Music Library track "The Hero is Here" and adds lyrics to them.

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedWardrobe: James in ''Cinemassacre Rental'' pretty much always wears a red Cinemassacre T-shirt.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: One has started in ''Cinemassacre Video'': Tony is grossed out by eyeballs getting stabbed, so naturally Kieran brings it up frequently, even in unrelated contexts.
