KirinDave is known for having a friendly relationship with his fan base outside of his channel and for interacting with them more directly than is common.
KirinDave provides examples of these tropes:
- Bruiser with a Soft Center: Is continually calm and polite in almost all his series, Minecraft or No, in spite of usually boasting a lot of power. This is particularly obvious around Paprika Su.
- Deity of Human Origin: Prefers to think of his Minecraft character as having been human - once, before a slow transformation process took over.
- Friendly Rivalry: With Lying In Bed Mon throughout Chaosville, until he locked lying inside of his own well for possibly decades which had repercussions when they both ended up on the Yogscast Complete server from Chaosville.
- Horned Humanoid: His current Minecraft character skin has two different pairs of horns (Ram and Deer antlers), primarily through his own design but party as a result of Ascended Fanon from the viewers.
- Humanoid Abomination: His Minecraft character is apparently wearing a human corpse which was grown for him and has been steadily breaking down ever since making him appear less and less human◊ as time goes on. His form currently has both Antlers and Ram horns as well as five eyes. There are supposedly more not yet in view...
- Shock and Awe: Kirin's Lightning Affinity for the majority of Minecraft: The Hard Way came as a result of maxing out that element in his Affinity charts and led to him being unable to stand in water without taking damage.
