Lets Play / In The Little Wood

Go To
Hello everybody! This page is about InTheLittleWood, also known as Martyn. InTheLittleWood is a creator of YouTube videos that joined the Yogscast in August 2012. He is mostly known for his Minecraft and The Legend of Zelda videos. He became known through his music video Form This Way. Often plays co-op with So Totally Toby and other members of the Yogscast.

His main channel can be found here.

Tropes that apply to InTheLittleWood:

  • Ascended Fanboy: Supposedly, Martyn to the Yogscast.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Happens a lot. It get even worse in that Martyn forgets what he was doing before he got distracted.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Do NOT touch his Lapis Lazuli. Or even say anything bad about it.
    • A more serious one online; he does not take allegations of sexual abuse in the YouTube community lightly and gets seriously angry about it. He was outraged and upset when he discovered a moderator of his was a paedophile, and chucked him out instantly.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Especially in PvP!
  • Blatant Lies: After accidentally giving himself away as the murderer in Murder (by mentioning he could see footprints, something only the murderer can do), Martyn tries backtracking by saying that since he was the murderer in a previous round he can't be againnote .
  • Advertisement:
  • *Bleep*-dammit!: In some playthroughs such as the Zelda series, he's rather on-and-off when it comes to swearing. Sometimes he'll perform a Last-Second Word Swap (mostly "Sugar") in order to avoid swearing, but will then add profanity to the in-game dialogue in the same episode.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Male version. The Dream Team; Martyn, Strippin, and Sparkles* respectively.
  • Butt-Monkey: He became this when he joined the Yogs for Murder, where his naive nature got him killed quite a few times and made him the butt of most of the jokes.
  • The Cameo: He appears in Area 11's "Monopoly" video, delivering a spoof of a Do Not Try This at Home PSA about eating Monopoly houses.
  • Catchphrase: "Hello everybody, I'm InTheLittleWood, also known as Martyn, and today...".
  • Chekhov's Skill: Is able to improvise alternative lyrics to virtually any song without missing a beat, even as the song is playing. He's since become known as the Yogscast's primary artist for coming up with parodies.
  • Crossover:
    • Before joining the Yogscast himself, his "Form This Way" parody went up on Simon Lane and Lewis Brindley's channel.
    • Along with the other Yogs members, Martyn has played alongside PewDiePie, Minx, Cinnamon Toast Ken and SeaNanners.
    • He also regularly collaborates with Nerd³ and So Totally Toby, having an ongoing series with the former and just recording with the latter all the time.
    • Dan Bull recorded a rap that went up on Martyn's channel.
    • Before they officially joined the Yogscast, Hat Films joined him and Sparkles* for a night of Halo 4, as part of a charity livestream.
  • Epic Fail: Martyn cannot shoot during Garry's Mod, and seemingly lacks peripheral vision, allowing a murderer an easy win. While he's relatively new compared to the others, there was no excusing that mistake.
    Simon: Martyn, you are the worst.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Is this in the High Rollers campaign; he plays Falk, a half-orc botanist that appears in Episodes 8 and 9.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners:
    • Martyn and So Totally Toby are known for being "bros".
    • The bromance between "The Dream Team" Martyn, Strippin and Sparkles* during the Christmas 2012 Livestreams counts.
  • In-Series Nickname: Gets referred to as "Inthelittlebait" and "Inthelittleheartattack" during Series 2 of Murder. The former is for when he sacrifices himself so that the gunman has an idea as to where the murderer's coming from, the latter is for when he gets attacked and shouts out incredibly loudly, almost sounding pained.
  • Jerkass to One: To Toby, though only jokingly.
  • Keet: He's almost always perpetually cheerful, fun-loving, and an overall friendly, extroverted guy.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: He and Kaeyi own two cats called Pascal and Kiki. They are adorable and much-loved.
  • Naïve Newcomer: When he joined the second Yogscast season of Murder, he was the only one not to have played it. While he has played games like Prop Hunt and Trouble in Terrorist Town, he still struggled to keep up. He eventually got better.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: His reaction to "Elsa's Baby Birth", when he sees Elsa breastfeeding a baby, although this was more about the game moving from the source material's more PG content.
    • One of his Super Mario Maker videos is titled with a variant of this: "Why!? Just... why?"
  • Official Couple:
    • With Kaeyi, at least until July 2015 when they broke up.
    • He is currently married to NettyPlays, a fellow gaming-based content creator who was introduced to Minecraft by her younger brother.
  • Older Than They Look: His face and personality makes him seem like he's around 20, but he's actually about as old as most other members of the Yogscast.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: He is capable of imitating a number of accents, but not always for very long.
  • Running Gag:
    • Martyn has a habit of never picking up his crafting tables.
    • Martyn's love of lapis lazuli.
  • Saying Too Much: In Murder, he accidentally gives away the fact he's the murderer by mentioning that he can see footprints, then tries to backtrack with Blatant Lies.
  • Ship Tease: The second Advent calendar adventure has this all overthe goddamn place and they know it.
    Martyn: We're really not helping the Sototallylittlewood tag on Tumblr, are we?
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is spelled with a "y", not and "i".
  • Squee: Whenever he sees something cute or cool he tends to squee in a high pitched voice.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: How one episode of Tekkit goes, thanks to some stolen TNT and some inspiring fanart.
  • Take That, Audience!: After an irrational part of the fandom accused him of replacing Sips in the Yogscast Garry's Mod series, he and Hat Films eventually joked that he had replaced Sips forever, clearly mocking the "fans" that didn't like the formula being changed.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness:
    • In the Yogscast PvP Survival Games match, Martyn and Toby are the last team standing when Ridge announces that only one of them is allowed to win. Toby immediately protests this, saying he would never kill his partner. Martyn, on the other hand, doesn't even hesitate before shooting Toby in the face.
    • And even earlier in said PvP, when Simon Lane is looking for a new partner after Lewis Brindley dies, Martyn jumps right in, asking what he's looking for. Toby objects.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: See Heterosexual Life-Partners.
  • Virtual YouTuber: He became a VTuber in 2022.
  • Vlog Series: Alongside his regular channel he also occasionally uploads vlogs.
