WARNING: Untagged spoilers ahead, read at your own risk.

  • The way Thomas manages to put out wholesome content. He loves his fandom and his fandom loves him; a thing you do not see often in fandoms. The fandom is considered very optimistic, open-hearted and peaceful, not without reason.
  • His own acting is stellar, as well as the amount of work he puts into it. When Deceit happened, many fans were overwhelmed by how Thomas can act evil so convincingly.
  • His friend Valerie gets a CMOA of her own in one of Thomas' prank call videos. The prompt he gets for her call is that he needs help with homework, so he pulls out a complicated problem about when two trains will pass each other depending on when they leave and how fast they're going. Valerie not only solves the problem, but she solves it in her head in no more than 30 seconds. During a theatre intermission. Thomas is so gobsmacked that he levels with Valerie and admits that he was prank-calling her, and didn't actually expect her to answer, much less so quickly. This is just one of many examples of Thomas' friends being awesome.
    • Her call begins at the 12:10 mark on this clip.
  • What began as a joke has now turned into Ascended Fanon: Thomas actually partnered with Crofter's Organic to create a new flavor of jam called "Logan's Berry"!
  • The 2018 Vidcon Dad Joke Competition, where Thomas helped lead his teammates to victory by "getting into character" via glasses. He was able to come up with his own dad jokes without looking at/using the provided ones at all. His getting into character can be viewed as two things:
    • Thomas "getting into character" is him channeling the sides - specifically Patton (as evidenced by the complete glee that his face takes as soon as he puts on the glasses and the ability to nail the dad jokes) and some may even say Logan (helping him to remain stoic in the face of jokes) and Roman (thanking the random audience member) to an extent.
    • Thomas is a theatrical actor, therefore he could very well act through anything with a straight face.
    • This tweet confirms that Thomas actually did channel Patton and Logan. Either way, it was awesome.
      • What makes it more amazing, is that everyone knows Thomas getting into character is a force to be reckoned with - as noted by Evan Edinger's immediate nervous forehead wipe and collar pull, the moderator's immediate laughing and the crowd's excited cheers.

  • Thomas did a charity livestream that had an inital goal of $5,000. The goal was passed five times. Each of those times he did the chat's requests, such as doing Virgil's hiss, and doing online games with the audience, and they were awesome. For the $25,000 goal, he sang as Janus. Everyone in the stream liked that. After that, Thomas said that he would donate enough to hit $30,000.


How well does it match the trope?
