** Predominantly being used in ''World Of Tanks'', he refers to any players (in this case, usually super heavies) who just sit at the back and do nothing useful as "sniffing glue".


*** He lost his first Seamoth minisub in an encounter with a Leviathan--which apparently resulted in the Leviathan ''eating the Seamoth and crapping it out on the ocean floor''. [[CaptainObvious A clear loss]].

* TheDayTheMusicLied: Happens in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFsqo2HCF_U this]] ''World of Warships'' replay of a player in the Tier X German battleship ''Großer Kurfürst''. The player was having a decent match, if dealing with absolutely befuddling damage rolls courtesy of the [[RandomNumberGod RNG]] mockingly giving him high damage ''over''penetrations, but low or no damage (Module damage only) ''penetrating'' hits.

** Stated in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7R9xlysQ84 episode #152]] of Mingles with Jingles that he's pretty much done with ''War Thunder'' due to Gaijin Entertainment's reaction to fellow Youtuber [=PhlyDaily=]'s video exposing the use of hacks in the game.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Said reaction being to force [=PhlyDaily=] to remove the video for "promoting illegal modifications" then briefly posting a poll on the ''War Thunder'' forums giving players the choice between giving Gaijin Entertainment permission to use copyright claims to censor ''War Thunder'' content on Youtube or implementing target markers in realistic battle mode, essentially turning it into arcade mode. Jingles quite correctly pointed out that it would be suicidal for someone who relies on their YouTube channel to make a living, as he does, to expose themselves to potentially having the channel deleted due to unwarranted copyright violation reports and false DMCA takedown requests.[[/labelnote]]

'''The Mighty Jingles''' (Real Name: Paul Charlton, aka [=BohemianEagle=]) is a YouTube personality and Website/{{Twitch}} streamer whose YouTube channel generally consists of LetsPlay style videos of games such as ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'', ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarships'' and ''VideoGame/WarThunder'' among other games. Known for his catchphrases, humorous commentary and tendency to snark at the stupidity of some players, he's amassed nearly 600,000 subscribers and over 275 million views on his channel. He's expressed surprise at just how popular he's become - one visit to an event at the Bovington Tank Museum became an impromptu (and very extended) meet and greet as hundreds of people queued up to say hello and have photos taken with him. He's wised up since then and now has the venue set things up in advance for him.

Is good friends with fellow YouTube players WebVideo/QuickyBaby amongst others and often plays with him (though he's stepped away from livestreaming, see CelebrityIsOverrated below). He was briefly engaged to Creator/RitaGamer up until March 2017 (though the two still remain friends).

* EpicFail: So much as he has a Youtube playlist dedicated to these kinds of outcomes. He also has "Epic Win" videos, but as Jingles has acknowledged, an Epic Win for one player is almost always an Epic Fail for somebody else. On a smaller note his "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" videos seem to feature at least some form of this.

** "God dammit Billy!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Jingle's playthrough of ''VideoGame/XCOM2'', he sets up a squad of "Ultimate Badasses" based off of himself and his friends among the YouTube and Twitch gaming personalities, such as Creator/{{RitaGamer}}, Quickybaby, Circonflexis, Ike, and others. After he unlocks the 6-member squad deployment upgrade, he declares his team needs a scapegoat to take all the blame when things inevitably go wrong (which, being ''XCOM'', is quite often) or when he screws up (which, being Jingles, is quite often). The thankless job is handed to Billy "Scapegoat" Warren, with regular shouts of the above line, or variations there of. The real Billy Warren regular comments on the ''XCOM'' videos and jokes about it and plays it up.[[/labelnote]]

*** This was clearly influenced by Wargaming's top officials for all their regional offices (apparently at the behest of the CEO) apologizing and stating under no uncertain terms that no one in the company was ever to censor Youtubers by threatening copyright strikes again. This is also what inspired Jingles to give ''War Thunder'' a second chance, since Gaijin seemingly learned their lesson from their own copyright strike debacle.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Occasionally plays to this when on the opposing team from fellow Youtube gamers, where he and his opponent(s) will trash-talk each other quite intensely yet still remain friends after the dust settles.

* SelfDeprecation: One of Jingles most common forms of humor. He often describes his skills at playing the games he covers as being those of a "dirty, scrub-lord, noob". On his ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' playthrough, he cheerfully admits that he's gotten a number of "Flawless" Mission results, despite making every textbook mistake he possibly could through sheer dumb luck. And throughout his own replays, he will mention he knows someone in the comment section of his videos is going to reply to some of the things he's done with "Jingles, you noob!"

Hence his idea of a "[[WhatAnIdiot Jingles Moment]]".

Added DiffLines:

* GoneHorriblyWrong: If he isn't highlighting it in a replay, he's possibly the one suffering at watching his plans go to hell.
** During his playthrough of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedOdyssey'', he gets into a fight with the Spartan lieutenant Stentor and decides to try and finish the fight quickly via Spartan Kicking Stentor off a cliff. And it succeeds! Only to send him into a convenient pond of SoftWater. So Jingles chases after Stentor via and Leap of Faith into the water, gets out and continues to fight Stentor. Which is also in the middle of the Spartan army camp. All of which just after Jingles, playing as Kassandra, had just betrayed Sparta and killed the Spartan General Nikolas.


Added DiffLines:

* TheJinx: "The Jingles Effect", which is noted as being whenever Jingles shows up in another person's stream or while they're playing a game, something seems to go spectacularly and hilariously wrong for that person. As demonstrated (twice) by Rita and explained by Jingles in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8OJBtywwz4 this video]].


* {{Catchphrase}}: "Howdy folks", "Take care (on that battlefield) and I'll catch you next time", "To the salt mines with him/her!"," Didn't see that one coming, did you, Rommel?", "If it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid", "Surprise buttsex!" (on one player getting behind another and unloading shells into/ramming their generally lesser armoured back), "Broadside on to a battleship? [[Memes/TheSimpsons That's a paddlin'.]]" and more.

* CelebrityIsOverrated: Minor example - he's generally stopped livestreaming when playing [=MMOs=] as too many people were using it to track him down and try and kill him on the battlefields. It's also sometimes an issue in general play but to a lesser extent and he has sometimes used it to his advantage to lure trigger happy enemy players into traps. He occasionally changes his Wargaming username because of this, but since those names are always references to things he likes there will invariably be fans who recognize him even before his next replay airs with the new in-game name. He's also at the point where he has to be a bit careful about how visible he is at public events as so many people want to come up and say hello and he's worried about people's safety - he cancelled a meet and greet on trip to New York as he wasn't sure how many people might turn up and didn't want to disappoint anyone who didn't get to meet him and as it was technically a holiday didn't want to spend hours "working".
