Added DiffLines:

* ImpossibleMissionCollapse: As soon as Leeroy returns to his keyboard, the group's carefully-constructed plan goes down the tubes in an instant. Possibly a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] if you consider that the plan wouldn't have worked anyway even if Leeroy hadn't gone off.


* TooDumbToLive: ''Everybody''. PALS FOR LIFE's plan would have gotten everyone killed in the first place; Leeroy simply sped up the process by running in without knowing or caring about the plan. And, of course, the entire raid decides to run in and try to save him rather than do the sensible thing by letting Leeroy die to his own stupidity.

Added DiffLines:

** The practice run video has him saying "Hey I'm back, chums. Let's do this!"


* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: Look closely and you can see him making a break for the door.

* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: Look closely and you can see him making a break for the door.[[note]]This was so he could cast Divine Intervention off screen, so he still died anyway.[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

** The filming party member just spends his whole time in the room drawing as much aggro as humanly possible and then dragging it back onto the rest of the party.

Added DiffLines:

* StunnedSilence: There's a stunned two-second pause as everyone absorbs Leeroy's idiotic move.

** Paladins today that didn't play back in those days might not even know what Divine Intervention did back in the day. It was removed from the game before returning in Patch 7.0.3 as a level 90 paladin passive that activates Divine Shield on any attack that would kill the paladin. Originally, Divine Intervention worked by instantly killing the casting paladin, while making another character completely immune to all attacks for 2-3 minutes (that character would also be unable to move or attack themselves). The ACTUAL use of this spell - if you were about to wipe, a paladin would cast it on a healer, or some other class that could resurrect, so the group wouldn't have to release and run back. Raids at the time had rapidly respawning trash so this was very beneficial and would save a lot of time.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakoutCharacter: Leeroy himself. Not only has he become a meme and a synonym for overt recklessness, he has become an actual part of Warcraft lore, appearing as a character in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', its affiliated trading card game, and ''VideoGame/{{Hearthstone}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* BoisterousBruiser: Leeroy definitely has the mindset of one, being eager to rush into the fight while loudly screaming his own name as a battle cry.


Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: As it becomes abundantly clear that they will not be surviving this, Jamaal asks if the guild at least has a soulstone up that can salvage the situation. Then someone reveals that they didn't even bring a warlock.


Added DiffLines:

* SuicidalOverconfidence: Leeroy is the poster child for this. Not only does he rush into the Rookery by himself without hearing what his pals had to say in his absence, but even as things start falling apart, he enthusiastically cheers that everything is under control.
-->"We got em, we got em!"

Added DiffLines:

* TheSmartGuy: The guild apparently sees Abduhl as this, since he's so good at math that he can calculate their odds of success. ''Where'' he draws his calculations from is anyone's guess.


In this video, a "PALS FOR LIFE" raid group is making plans for clearing out the Rookery area of the Upper Blackrock Spire, a ten-player raid instance in the Blackrock Mountain zone (the players are speaking to each other via voice over Internet). The area in question contains a large number of eggs being watched over by dragonspawn; if one gets too close to the eggs, they will hatch into baby dragons called Rookery Whelps, and if too many of them spawn, they can quickly overwhelm a group, which is why careful planning is needed to take the room on. The main reason the group are at the Rookery is because Leeroy, one of the two paladins of the group, needs a Devout Mantle, a piece of cloth armor that the others say will help him heal better, off Solakar Flamewreath, the Rookery's main boss.

** At this point in ''[=WoW=]''[='s=] history, it was downright ''common'' for healers, no matter their class, to wear cloth pieces, as non-cloth armor pieces with the appropriate stats were both rarer and usually inferior. It's less common now because of in-game bonuses given to players who wear pieces of ''only'' their "preferred" armor class, as well as better itemization.
