Rita in typical streaming mode :)
RitaGamer (real name Rita Sobral) is a Portuguese Twitch personality, blogger and occasional YouTuber whose content is primarily based around the video game World of Tanks with occasional forays into other games such as World of Warships and Armored Warfare. Now living in England she streams around three times a week and her blog Status Report is regularly updated with tank related content. She was briefly engaged to Paul Charlton aka The Mighty Jingles, up until ending the relationship in March 2017 (though the two still remain friends).

  • Adorkable: Rita is incredibly sweet and enthusiastic on her streams.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Has occasionally been known to wear outfits that do this.
  • Gamer Chick: She's a lady, she plays games and she's seriously skilled at World of Tanks.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Rita's avatar in The Mighty Jingles playthrough of XCOM 2 isn't nicknamed "Big Sleep" for nothing :)
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Rita owns two cats and dotes on them both.
  • Nice Hat: Rita has been known to rock various hats - military berets and the chinese version of the iconic russian winter cap amongst others as well as an Indiana Jones style Fedora.
  • One of the Boys: Rita is as enthusiastic about gaming and armoured fighting vehicles as any guy.

  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse : Rita is pretty short, even for a lady, but packs a lot of personality into a small package. It does make it harder for her to find tanker overalls and airsoft gear to fit her as in her own words she packs a "lot of junk in the trunk" and small male sizes don't give enough room for it.
  • Red Baron: Recently proclaimed herself as "The Margaret Thatcher of World of Tanks".
  • Sexy Spectacles: Rita is rarely seen without these.
  • Spicy Latina: Mostly averted - Rita doesn't play on her the fact she's female much and unless you are stupid enough to try trolling her streams, especially with sexist or racist comments, rarely gets angry while streaming though she can get annoyed by stupid teammates and occasionally lapses into colourful Spanish or Portuguese swearing if someone is particularly incompetent or stupid, especially if their actions get her damaged or killed.

  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: A lot of people coming across her stream for the first time mistake her Portuguese accent for Russian, possibly not helped by the fact that World of Tanks is from a Russian developer.

How well does it match the trope?
