Despite the numerous bugs he plowed through a game which didn't even have a full walkthrough anywhere on the net, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome writing a walkthrough for himself as he went at it]]. But Proteus gets credit as well, as they had to play through numerous maps more than one time since the game crashed on them several times.

In 2007, a [[Website/SomethingAwful Goon]] by the name of Proteus4994 bought ''VideoGame/{{Daikatana}}'' and planned to make an LP out of it. However since he, in his own words, sucks at FPS games, and can't carry commentary on his own, he strongarmed/persuaded Suspicious, back then known for Let's Playing several classic FirstPersonShooter[=s=] on the highest difficulty setting, into doing the LP with him. This translated to Suspicious playing through the game in advance in single player mode and then walking Proteus through it in co-op mode.

** The LP's narrative featured on the Let's Play Archive is composed of Proteus speaking with an [[{{Jerkass}} egotistical]] representation of John Romero for each update. After many updates of Proteus tolerating John's assholish behavior, calling him out on his BS and throwing {{Stealth Insult}}s John's way, the last update has John [[BreakingSpeech throw it all back in Proteus's face,]] [[JerkassHasAPoint calling him out on his own flaws as an LPer and as a person.]] Proteus is left speechless.

* DeadpanSnarker: While Proteus has his share, Suspicious embodies the trope a lot more.



* HypercompetentSidekick: Suspicious.
* TheQuietOne: Guest Veotax in the Alcatraz episode, who barely speaks at all during the entire playthrough, which annoys Proteus.
* SelfDeprecation: As per Proteus's style, despite his {{Jerkass}} exterior. Also see the second entry in ATasteOfHisOwnMedicine above, given that version of John Romero is [[{{Flanderization}} fabricated]] by Proteus himself.



* TheStoic: Suspicious, [[BewareTheNiceOnes mostly]].

!!This LP of ''LetsPlay/{{Daikatana}}'' contains examples of:
* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: Proteus is pretty abusive towards Suspicious and their guests. When they do fight back, however, this trope is subverted, as Proteus is seen to follow TheGoldenRule; he encourages his guests and Suspicious to treat him no better than he does them, and by the second-to-last episode Suspicious and Frankomatic (their guest-of-the-episode) kill him numerous times out of Revenge.
