"Hi guys! It's Minx here! Hope you're doing well! And Welcome (back) to [insert game here]!"
Mangaminx's intro phrase as of late.

Mangaminx, or simply Minx (real name: Michelle), is a female Lets Player from the UKnote . She is known for playing games in the Survival Horror genre, though she does take a step into other genres as well, such as her fascination with cooperative games made in Garry's Mod, especially Prop Hunt (the playlist for which has literally hundreds of videos). Her quick wit commentaries and frantic reactions to the games she plays have garnered quite a large Youtube fanbase. With over 1,000,000 subscribers, she is easily one of the most popular female LPers – possibly the most popular.

Minx has been in a longstanding relationship with fellow You-Tuber and artist Krismpro and was proposed to by Krism late 2014 (later reenacted during a livestream with Cryaotic).

They were married in February 2015.

Moved to TheRPGMinx several years ago, but all her previous videos are still accessible from her old account (though she had to delete a large number of her older series, because of the new way Youtube enforces copyrights). Moved again to Krinx TV in 2018.

She and her wife also regularly stream on Twitch, under the username Krinx Show.

    Games Mangaminx has Let's Played (not including one-shots) 

    One-shots/series played on Krinx TV 

Her Let's Plays and other videos provide examples of:

  • Achievements in Ignorance: Apparently spent some time manually pushing five sacrifices to an altar in her Goat Simulator video, having obviously never bothered to check the controls for the button that would have allowed her to simply pick up objects and people.
  • Angrish: During monster chase sequences/other generally tense situations, her speech typically dissolves into unintelligible blathering.
  • Badass Normal: Many of the characters she plays.
  • Berserk Button: Some of her most colorful, angry rants have been in relation to extremely frustrating, poorly-designed puzzles that involve such precise control that even when one knows how to do them they fail constantly.note  She also has a low tolerance for trolls… even though she often is one in Prop Hunt.
    • For Krism, unforgiving games. Also lack of research on various things. Expect a lecture whenever she notes something off with a game's logic. Text-to-speech dialogue being used for the entirety of a game is a big gripe with her as of late.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Krism is significantly less physically imposing than Minx and is generally soft-spoken and less vulgar. However when something really pisses her off she can intimidate almost everyone with a verbal smackdown using her surprisingly loud high-pitched voice, Minx included.
  • Break the Cutie AND Heroic BSoD in the end of episode 3 of Life Is Strange when she finds Chloe is paralyzed in a wheelchair.
    Minx: What the fuck did I do? What the fuck did I do?! *Begins whimpering*
  • Bring My Brown Pants: During the first chapter of Bendy and the Ink Machine, she reminds herself "we're not gonna poop our pants today."
  • Catchphrase:
    • On some occasions, when she sees something terrible, she comments "10 out of 10!"
    • "Oh, God, there's gonna be things, isn't there?" on just about every horror game. Usually, she's correct.
    • "You know what I mean?" usually crops up during a general Let's Play.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: "Hello, visible wind, how are you?"
    • Also: "Ha ha. Hahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" She does this a lot in Prop Hunt, usually when she has trolled someone! Don't believe us? You should.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: The swearing in her videos rarely stops, to hilarious effect.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Rather common in her LPs.
  • Cold Open: Her UnExit video has one where it shows the creepy, silent, intro to the game before she says anything.
  • Cowardly Lion: Spends most of her videos terrified, but doesn't back down.
  • Cute But Psycho: Her intro animation (before she stopped putting those in) invokes this.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She delivers many insanely quotable lines during her LPs.
  • The Determinator: She doesn't give up no matter how difficult the game/puzzles are. E.g. The steam puzzle in Penumbra... The frustration parts in Ju-on... Bloodlines...
  • Even Evil Has Standards: While Minx is known to play some of the most offensive cards in Cards Against Humanity when getting a write-in card, she actually censored a card in her "The Youtuber Deck" video because she felt it was TOO offensive.
    • When some people on twitter digged up what the card said, she even became furious and insulted the regarding people for being disrespectful.
    • Minx went on to say that she didn't censor the card because it was offensive, she censored it out of respect, for what or to whom nobody knows. But whatever the card said, it obviously hit home.
    • Minx once played a card that said "9/11" on it (for "Historians agree that ____ caused the downfall of America") and subsequently declared it "the worst thing [she's] ever done."
  • Evil Laugh: When playing any game where she has the opportunity to commit evil acts, she will sometimes engage in some impressive evil laughter. This is especially true of her Yandere Simulator vids, where she lets out crazed laughter worthy of Yandere-chan herself.
  • The Faceless: Minx has mentioned on many occasion she doesn't wish to show her face on camera. She has said that it would make her feel uncomfortable and that she doesn't want to be recognized in public. Despite this, she was once stopped because someone recognized her voice at one point.
  • A Mother To Her Men: Often is this way with the main characters in the games she LPs.
  • Faux Affably Evil: In Trouble In Terrorist Town, Murder, Hidden, and any game where she has the opportunity to commit evil acts, she will often be this.
    • Special mention goes to this TTT video where she drowns two of her opponents in a bathroom, slipping into the For the Evulz category with her evil laugh and simply activating the switch that drowns her opponents - with a terrifying evil laugh beforehand.
  • Friendship Song: A very odd one with Boyinaband and Markiplier, called Hello Monsta.
  • Gamer Chick: One of the most popular female LPers on Youtube.
  • Genre Savvy: She is well aware of tricks many horror games try to pull, and is often a step ahead. Usually.
    • She also has gotten very used to how the monsters' patterns work in Amnesia: The Dark Descent, though some mods still surprise her.
    • In Prop Hunt, she is very clever; once, she hid as a mouse and trolled someone for ages. Cue insane laughter from Minx.
    • In SOMA, she sees one image of an angler fish in an random base. When she sees a lonely light sometime later, she instantly stops, watches it carefully, notices that it's moving and correctly assumes that it is an angler fish and that it will kill her, if she get's close.
    • Genre Blind: Despite her usually canny perception of the tricks a game will play, she has her moments. For example, in the 'Tenebris Lake' mod for Amnesia she was locked in a room with increasingly alarming music playing, yet didn't bother to hide in the nearby closet before the monster broke in (a common occurrence in the game).
  • Happily Married: As of the last week of February 2015, Minx and Krism have officially tied the knot.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Minx's basic reaction when Krism utterly wets herself over her game glitching and being unable to move. She's barely able to get words out, a sentence of which is "GUYS, I'M SO SCARED! DON'T BE SO FUCKING SCARY!" to Krism.
  • Huge Girl, Tiny Girl: Minx is 6'1", while Krism's height remains unknown – though considering she calls her wife a tall babe, there's probably a difference. It would certainly fit every other aspect of their dynamic (older vs. younger, deep voice vs. child-like voice, etc.)
    • Minx recently revealed in a stream that Krism is about 5'3".
  • The Hyena: Oh yes. She has an utterly contagious laugh, which she uses when she is doing things For the Evulz. Which happens quite a lot. Here is a short compilation.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Occasionally.
    "How's that for an innuendo. In-your-endo, shut up!"
    • "Do you reckon they were CROSS about it?" to Krism via her Nun Massacre video when they find a suicide spot marked by a cross-shaped tombstone.
    • That playthrough is full of terrible nun-based puns in general.
  • Laughing Scared: Tends to deal with tension and fear using humour. It's obvious the atmosphere is getting to her when she starts giggling like crazy.
  • Lovable Traitor: While of course she's not actually more likely to be the traitor/murderer/mafiosa than any other player, Minx revels in (and seems to actively cultivate) her reputation as a duplicitous backstabber in Trouble in Terrorist Town and other games of treachery.
    • Prop Hunt, for example. She has been, to name a few: a mouse, a shoe, a baby, a bottle… notice a pattern? Small, quick, sneaky.
  • Multiple Endings: She has shown slight disdain for these and has stated multiple times that she refuses to replay a game that has multiple endings even if she doesn't get the "canon" one.
    • Since Undertale, she has even clarified that she deems games that try to force replays with unsatisfactory endings simply horrible game design, though for the specific game that incited this, it's somewhat missing the point, both in regards to why there are Multiple Endings and the fact that a full replay isn't actually necessary since the game encourages you to reload your save file near the end.
  • Murder Ballad: Literally – a new original rap with Boyinaband and Chilled Chaos based on gmod Murder.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite showing obvious glee in doing terrible things, she's chosen to make the "gratitude" choice in her Overlord Let's Play (e.g. in whether she keeps the food stolen from the halflings or gives them to the town they had been terrorizing, she chose the latter).
  • Phrase Catcher: "Don't trust Minx!" And yet they do.
  • Running Gag: Minx's online golf games with her fellow YouTubers always end up with her fighting to not come in last.
    • Krism burping in videos, and Minx grading said burp based on how much collateral damage they do, likening them to earthquakes.
    • Complaining about having to open doors in games like in Amnesia: The Dark Descent
    • Questioning the existence of sliding puzzles.any time she encounters one in any given game.
  • Shipper on Deck: While playing through Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, she quickly picks up on the Les Yay between Toko and Komaru, and runs with it.
    • She also appreciates the relationship tension between Max and Chloe during Life Is Strange and excitedly slammed the button for kissing Chloe when it came up.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: When Minx and Krism are doing a playthrough together, expect to hear plenty of cooing and affection between them.
    • Though it is just as often averted by Krism who has no trouble shouting at and insulting Minx when being frustrated in-game. Though it is usually just for puns and Minx never takes it serious (rather making her more inclined on being sweet, making it a hilarious conversation between the two).
  • The Sociopath: Many of her gameplay has her depicted in this light. Even minx herself began to worry that people see her as such and made a vlog to talk about it.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Minx is 6'1" and depicted to be attractive in fan arts.
  • Lady Swears-a-lot: Enjoys using the words "fuck", "shit", and "cunt", especially when frustrated or scared. This has arguably become more mild in recent videos.
  • Talking to Themself: Whether hiding from a monster or solving a boring puzzle, she sometimes talks to inanimate objects to alleviate tension.
  • The Unseen: Had never appeared on camera until April 2017. Prior to this, there was a general consensus by fan artists on what she looks like.
    • In one of her Q&A videos, she's said some fans have recognized her based on her voice, but have been respectful and not taken pictures.
  • Troll: She tricks, deceives and frequently mocks other YouTuberrs in stuff like Trouble in Terrorist Town, Prop Hunt and Deathrun. Sometimes it backfires.
  • Twofer Token Minority: One of the few (though the number has been steadily rising) female Let's Players. One of the very few openly gay and transgender Let's Players. Popular regardless. For context about her being trans, she mentions that she's a trans woman during the 3rd game in this video. She also brings up taking estrogen during this stream.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With many YouTubers, such as PewDiePie, Markiplier and Chaotic Monki.
    • Even more so with Krism, who often insults and yells at Minx. It tends to be more one-sided, but it's all in jest.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Minx seems to have a fear of moths, given her reaction to seeing one in the intro of Until Dawn was to urge the screen to change in a quick, somewhat panicked, voice.
    • More-or-less confirmed as of this video, with a moth-like enemy showing up around the 3-minute mark, which causes Minx to start freaking out and Krism saying that "it's [Minxs] worst nightmare".
