Awesome / NintendoCapriSun

Go To

  • In the Donkey Kong Country 2 LP, during his run of the level Klobber Karnage, the emulator he was using (ZSNES) caused an emulation glitch that made the barrels spin without stopping, when normally you could control those ones with no problem, which made everything 10x harder than it really is... and he beat the unwinnable level, with some help, of course.
  • NintendoCapriSun had never played Battletoads before the 4-player race with ProtonJon, Super Jeenius, and Pcull. And yet he did respectively well and actually placed third overall, even having FUN in Rat Race.
  • In his Ocarina of Time LP, he mentions having done the Water Temple without using the Zora Tunic the first time he played. While this is possible, the Temple is much easier with the Zora Tunic.
  • He has beaten Contra with one life. Not to mention, he plays the game like he does it every morning. What makes it more awesome? The next time he plans to beat the game, his special guest? His Mom. Manly.
    • And, in an awesome subversion of Harsher in Hindsight as his mother passed away before that could happen (especially on Memorial Day), Tim announced that he would play the first three Contra games released on Nintendo consoles in a stream in her honor and make it an annual tradition on Memorial Day from then on. NintendoCapriMom, we salute you!

  • Also some of his Self Imposed Challenges can go here. Did a Three-Heart Run of Zelda 2, beaten Super Ghouls n Ghosts, and did Legend of Zelda 1's Second Quest without the sword. He is crazy.
  • The Super Mario Galaxy 2 Part 47 video under Ensemble Darkhorse was so much so that it was the first of NCS's videos to reach 1 million views.
  • NCS vs. The Great Mighty Poo. His reaction to the battle also doubles as a funny moment.
  • In his LMAO of Mario Party 2, he ends up dominating Mystery Land with a whopping 8 Stars, 4 times the amount of all the other players combined (Wario and Luigi had ONE Star each, while Donkey Kong got none), and swept all the Bonus Stars.
    • He also got 175 coins in Space Land after beating Luigi in a dual minigame worth 83 coins.(Bankrupting Luigi in the process.)
  • In his Link to the Past race, he won by a landslide, beating the game in 2 hours, 12 minutes and 37 seconds, and beating his old record in doing so.
    • And he would have done even better had he not died against the Helmasaur King, his only death in the whole project (and he was also the last one to die).
  • NCS taking a stand against some of the more vocal haters near the end of his Donkey Kong 64 LP.
  • From Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the Bonetail fight.
  • From Pokémon Sapphire, his encounter and capture of a Shiny Marill. His first Pokémon LP, and he gets this on his first try.
    • He also captures his first legendary quite easily, surprising even himself.
    • In the finale with guest commentator Chuggaaconroy, Tim manages to quite impress Chugga with his team choices, remarkable considering how high Chugga's Pokemon standards are.
    • He manages to beat Final Boss Steven despite failing to heal his Pokemon beforehand (due to not knowing it was coming).
  • After struggling the whole game with it, him beating the entire final world of Yoshi's Island with 100% on his first run-through (including the final level, which means not taking a single hit from any variation of the final boss.)
  • He did a Mega Man 1-5 marathon stream on Christmas Eve, 2013. By the end of Mega Man 5 he was exhausted, out of energy tanks and clearly frustrated after several failed attempts at the final boss (especially since he didn't have Beat). However, he eventually won after being taken down to 2 bits of health and said that giving up wasn't an option because he couldn't let his fans down.
    • During his Super Mario Maker stream on March 15, 2016, he ran into a user-submitted level that he just could not beat. After 2 hours of failure, he called it quits and took an Intermission. Upon returning, he declared he wasn't going to give up and had it cleared a few minutes later.
  • He easily avoided the Bad Ending in Phoenix Wright's Rise From the Ashes case and expertly reasoned why while being given the option. It's especially awesome when you stop to consider how hard it is to reason Wright's plan, especially for a first timer of the series.
    NCS: If I don't show [the evidence], that's okay too, because... Because it's not relevant to the trial! Because that's what the Evidence Law book says! Dude, we got this. We fucking got this, man!
  • Part 35 of his 3 heart run of Ocarina of Time featured gameplay that was recorded after the commentary it went with. He had originally recorded the episode (part of the Spirit Temple), but his recording stopped early on. Instead of just re-recording the episode with new commentary, he kept the original commentary for the episode and re-enacts what he did in the failed recording because he wanted to preserve his original commentary (in which he talked about his struggles at the time). The fact that he was able to re-enact his original gameplay is pretty awesome.
  • As he continues playing the Ace Attorney series, it's clear that he's picking up the nuances of the series' logic VERY quickly, to the point of correctly responding to one chance, maximum penalty prompts without missing a beat!
  • Back in Wind Waker he sums up the satisfaction of defeating the Helmaroc King with a single Precision F-Strike:
    NCS: Take that, ya fuck!
  • During a January 26, 2016 live stream, Tim completed the entirety of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link in a single sitting without raising his attack stat once!
    • Even more, he only took two attempts to kill Dark Link, taking him down in little over a minute on the second go without using the corner trick!Explanation 
  • During a playthrough of Stardew Valley, Tim deciphers the note in the community center by himself.
  • Tim's return to the world of Plants vs. Zombies sees him completing the No Sunflower challenge within 20 videos, only 2 more than it took him to complete the game's main adventure on his first run.

How well does it match the trope?
