Lets Play / Naka Teleeli

Go To

"Greetings and salutations, dear readers..."

NakaTeleeli is a Let's Player who prefers to LP Lighter and Softer obscure games along with fan made games, usually playing as female characters when given a choice. He is joined most of the time by his close friend ElementalOgre and occasionally by his wife MadameBerry for multiplayer games. Much chaos and fun follows. His YouTube page is right here and he also has a forum here, a Twitter page here, a Tumblr page here, a DeviantArt page here, a Twitch channel here, and a Discord server here. Both NakaTeleeli and ElementalOgre have been hired on as co-hosts for the podcast Moonhawk Studios Presents. In late 2011, NakaTeleeli created a new series based off of first impressions of recently acquired games, which has since been named Maiden Reactions, some episodes are done single-player and other episodes are done with ElementalOgre and his friends from the Moonhawk Studios Presents podcast. On November 7, 2012 it was announced that the Maiden Reactions series would be retired for various reasons.


On March 15, 2013, he started a new series called "Dancing with BAMs", in which he solos BAMs in TERA. This has been replaced by "Dancing with Primals" which is pretty much the same thing but with the Primals of Final Fantasy XIV He has also recently started doing Fragment Fridays, which he streams .hack//Fragment and other games.

     Maiden Reactions/Quick look at 

     Streamed Games 

Tropes that apply to them and their videos:

  • Afraid of Blood: Downplayed; as explained in his DOOM (2016) LP, Naka can stand blood, but gore squicks him right out if it's emphasized. Which is the reason he usually plays Lighter and Softer games.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Ogre in the more recent Persona 4 videos.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: For part 21 of 3D Dot Game Heroes, in which Ogre is a guest, Naka switches the Player Character from Miss Naka to Ogre's Author Avatar.
  • And Now For Something Completely Different: Alien: Isolation marks the first LP of a Survival Horror game on the channel, with Naka and Ogre lampshading it.
  • April Fools' Day: Oh Naka, you tease.
  • Art Evolution: Aside from the numbers in the thumbnails changing style over time, starting with the DOOM (2016) LP, custom art provided by Berry is also included.
  • Ascended Extra: MadameBerry, who only appeared temporarily in Super Mario 3D World playing alongside Naka and Ogre (as Toad), proceeded to return for Trine 2 and Kirby's Epic Yarn as the sole guest and in Kirby Star Allies with Ogre once again, and she's usually heard in the background in the Fragment Friday streams.
    • Lenny, one of the chat mods in the Fragment Friday streams, joined Naka and Ogre when they did Parallel Quests in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse LP.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Several episodes from Journey Home were turned into bonus episodes because Naka's want of showing off all the dungeons in the mod came off as this.
  • Author Appeal: Naka has a soft spot for witch girls, as evident of how much he likes Mima and Marisa Kirisame. He dressed his Final Fantasy XIV character in a witch costume for the Halloween event, and he even made the heroine of his own indie game, Tofu Tower, a witch girl!
  • Author Avatar: Naka has one in the form of Naka "the Honeywhite" Teleeli, a.k.a. Miss Naka. Ogre and Berry also have one each.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: According to him, anyway.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Naka was hoping to find something in the caves at the beginning of episode 7 of his Minecraft Survival LP. Come the end of Episode 8, he's found a dungeon and a mineshaft, is filled up with items... and is completely, utterly lost, far from home, and has so many good items on him now, dying means the entire trip has become pointless.
    Naka: Maybe next time, we can... not... get completely lost in here—I just wanna go home!
  • Berserk Button: FREAKING ICE!!!
    • As for the comments section, spoilers and unnecessary references.
    • In one Paper Mario episode, Naka got into a rant about people claiming how something generic is actually a reference.
  • Big Bad: His Minecraft series has one in The Sign Maker.
  • Brief Accent Imitation: Naka and Ogre tends to use funny accents at times. Most predominantly in the Lost Vikings LP.
  • Broken Pedestal: According to one of his Behind the Scenes videos of his Minecraft series, the fight with the Ender Dragon caused this in "Friend". Basically, Naka losing caused "Friend" to believe himself superior to his mentor figure, as opposed to an equal previously.
  • Buffy Speak
  • Catchphrase: "Greetings and salutations, dear viewer(s)." - used to open a Maiden Reactions vid or another non-Let's Play vid.
    • "I got this!"
    • "Eat it!" - usually said during boss fights.
    • " that's a thing," or "Let's do a thing" or other variants on that.
    • "Oh heavens!" - usually used for situations where Oh, Crap! doesn't quite suffice.
    • "That'll do her."
    • "That was almost dangerous."
    • More recently, Naka and Ogre have taken to saying "For freedom/glory!"
    • His euphemism "Fudge that noise".
    • "It's OHM NAKA!" from his Frägment Friday streams.
    • "...You're alright." - to a character he likes/approves of.
    • "Until next time, everyone."
  • Christmas Cake: From the Persona 4 LP:
    Ogre: Well, we're 26, so... We're Christmas cakes, but we're manly Christmas cakes!
  • Cliffhanger: Minecraft: Journey Home ended on one, as Naka fell into the hands of the Sign Maker again.
  • Combined Energy Attack: The very end of the Touhou Mother LP, which has everyone in the entire Mother and Touhou universes lending their power to finally destroy Giygas and Porky once and for all.
  • Convection Schmonvection: Discussed at the start of part 25 of New Super Mario Bros. U. They talk about convection and how they should currently be on fire. The conversation ends with them agreeing that the Mushroom Kingdom's physics are bullshit.
  • Cross Player: Most of time, Naka will choose/make a female character when given a choice. Not to mention his regular Author Avatar, Miss Naka, who was the Player Character for 3D Dot Game Heroes.
    • In the Minecraft series, his skin is Curly Brace.
    • Also, his Mii is a female version of him.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Ysami, Naka's character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse, isn't good at anything... except Ki Supers. To put this into perspective: Naka hangs back for most his fights and lets his allies deal with their opponent while he charges his ki, but once he actually uses a Super (or an Ultimate) most, if not all of the enemies' health is just gone. Crosses over with Glass Cannon since that also includes lacking health. She slowly edges into Lightning Bruiser territory when Naka eventually maxes out Ki Supers and starts putting more points into other stats.
  • Cute Kitten: here.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Both Naka and Ogre can be pretty dry at times. Naka especially.
    Naka: It would help if we were actually in Japan.
    Ogre: (thinking Naka means in-game) We are.
    Naka: No we're not.
    Ogre: Yeah we are; Inaba, Japan?
    Naka: I'm on the East Coast, I'm not sure where you are.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Naka hits one in Episode 64 of Fate's Grasp. It is very painful to watch.
  • Dungeon Bypass: Journey Home has Naka doing this in a manner most awesome in Episode 46.
  • Ear Rape: YOOOOOSHIIII!!!
  • Face Palm: Naka inserts an image of a double facepalm in Persona 4 episode 48 as his reaction to Ogre's rather blatant brony reference.
    Ogre: But I wanted to hit the bookstore! They were gonna have the new issue of "My Little Chojin: Wrestling Is Magic!"
    Naka: ...(groans)
    Ogre: Oh come on, I've been waiting for that issue forever! It's gonna have Applesmack take on Warsmare and we're gonna see the Hayseed Bomb! It's gonna be great!
    Naka: (double groan with double facepalm)
  • Filler: Episodes Lookout, Jungle, and Dungeon of "Minecraft: Journey Home" were dubbed as filler and removed from the playlist. Episode 50 Volcano has a short montage of Naka passing the entrances to the dungeon of those episode, but with Naka deciding to ignore them and continue onward.
  • Flat "What": During Episode 66 of Persona 4, on Ogre's description of "Men in History":
    Ogre: It's just a Fist of the North Star book... starring Teddy Roosevelt.
    Naka: What. And why must I read this?
  • Genre Savvy: Both Naka and Ogre, to quite an extent.
    • Happens A LOT in the Persona 4 LP, as Ogre tends to predict what the characters will say.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Naka pretty much never curses in his videos, even when he's panicking. This definitely is averted when it comes to Ogre, though.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: The episode subtitles for the Guacamelee! LP are in Spanish.
  • Groin Attack: Once or twice, Ogre tries a Nut Punch. Which Naka usually blocks and counters.
  • Heroic BSoD: Ogre has one at the beginning of the Metal Slug 1 playthrough, because Law and Order was cancelled. Ronnie James Dio passed away, and he saw an episode of Glenn Beck. Thankfully, Naka snaps him out of it.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: In the New Super Mario Bros. Wii playthrough, Ogre was stated from the beginning to be "murderous". And boy, does he prove that on several occasions. Except when the level's killing everyone enough so that he really isn't needed.
  • He's Back: Let's Muscle has FINALLY brought back Elemental Ogre in co-op vids.
    Naka: I really like the way everything's been going on the channel recently but... something just... feels like it's missing. And... I have no idea what.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Naka and Ogre lampshade this trope here.
    • Naka has gone on record and said that Ogre actually complements him very well in his LPs and he doesn't feel like he's as good in his videos without him by his side.
  • The Homeward Journey: Journey Home is an extended one of these following the finale of the original Minecraft Survival Let's Play.
  • Hope Spot: In the first episode of Journey Home, after going through loads of jungle, waking up to a village in flames, and traveling quite far, Naka finally makes it back home...or does he?
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Ogre's Namekian and Naka's female Majin, respectively, in Dragon Ball Xenoverse.
  • I'm Taking Her Home with Me!: Upon exiting a village in Mega Man Legends 2, Naka bumps into a Servbot who was left behind accidentally by Tron Bonne. After talking to the sad Servbot, Naka ends the video, picks up the Servbot, and runs toward the Flutter.
    Naka: Taking you home with me.
    • This turns into a Brick Joke in the following video:
    Naka: He didn't wanna go...
  • The Lancer: Ogre, and HOW. Lampshaded in the One of Us quote.
  • Large Ham: Naka is a large ham (especially when in his manly moments) but when him and Ogre are together, it leads into Ham-to-Ham Combat territory.
  • Laugh with Me!: Part 40 of Lost Vikings. 00:30
  • MSTing: The "Let's Watch Space Channel 5" videos, where Naka and Ogre merely watch the game and commentate over it in lieu of actually playing.
  • Moving the Goalposts: Seems to be happening in Journey Home.
  • Narm Charm: In-Universe; Naka states in the first episode of Dragon Ball Xenoverse that the reason he and Ogre like Dragon Ball Z so much is because they find it so dorky.
  • Nerf: Discussed; In part 23 of New Super Mario Bros. U, Naka and Ogre talk about a difficult boss fight in an MMO that they fought way back when. They claim that if someone calls that fight easy, then they probably fought it after it was nerfed.
  • Official Couple: According to his Tumblr page, he and MadameBerry married in September 2017.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: The Sign Maker/Friend from Minecraft. He is described as a very young child whose maturity did not grow as he learned more about the world. In Fate's Grasp it comes to a point where the Sign Maker drags Naka through many different worlds and tried to kill him various times because he simply viewed Naka as a plaything.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Ogre and Naka, respectively.
    • This extends to their playstyles as well; Naka is cautious and usually uses ranged attacks, while Ogre is more reckless and prefers melee attacks.
  • Running Gag:
    Ogre: [Elite mook!]
    Naka: God-dang it!
  • The Scrappy: In-Universe; as the Dragon Ball Xenoverse LP and livestreams show, Naka does not like Kid Trunks or Gotenks at all, and, when fighting them, will go out of his way to beat the tar out of them first.
    Naka: (after Gotenks appears) And thus the worst character in all of Dragon Ball Z appears.
  • The Scream: Near the end of That Stage We Will Never Speak Of Again.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In episode 35 of Journey Home, Naka decides he has had enough of the Sky Island, especially with the strange entity trying to keep him occupied with various tasks. Unfortunately, said island is floating above the void and there's no visible land in sight. But the compass is pointing in a certain direction, so he just builds a bridge in that direction. He eventually gets to solid ground again.
    • Happens again in the second episode of Escapecraft, after he gets nearly killed by the strange entity, apparently growing tired of him. He finds a loophole and gathers enough material to break out of where he is. Unfortunately, he could have incurred its wrath in the process if the end of the video was any indication.
  • Sequence Breaking: Taken Up to Eleven in A Link to the Past, where he intentionally glitches his way through the game and does everything out of order. The first episode, which went up on April Fool's Day, even had him sequence break past the final boss.
    Naka: Oh hey, we found the Triforce! Heck yeah. Well, I guess we beat the game. That was a short Let's Play.
  • Shout-Out: The pair make numerous references, subtle or blatant, to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Each video even ends with the "To Be Continued" arrow.
  • Shown His Work: Frequently in his LPs. Most notable are the .//hack Quadrilogy, where he splices in scenes from the related animes .hack//Liminality and .hack//SIGN; and Ōkami, where he points out the mythological references in the game. He likes to research the game and inform his watching audience of any related info to the scene while avoiding spoilers (minor ones get through but they don't reveal that much except little details).
    • During the Phantom Blood and Golden Wind LPs Naka and Ogre actually translate what's happening for the viewers because the games were never released in English. They also try to show off (or at least explain) all of the Secret Factors in the latter game, even the really hard ones.
    • With his LP of the R-Type series, he began every game by showing the series' ongoing timeline. Every major development and event was referenced, from Image Fight all the way to R-Type Final.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He's actually been raised to avert this trope, according to a response in part 3 of his Image Fight LP. That said, a few utterances of the word crap slipped out in the same video, but "crap" is so mild that it doesn't really count.
    • Played straight with Ogre, who uses much more profanity.
  • Stripperific: His female avatar, referred to as "Miss Naka".
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Both Naka and Ogre are particularly fond of this trope.
  • The Many Deaths of You: The patented death montages seen in the Let's Try of Eryi's Action.
  • The Reveal: Fate's Grasp, Episode 67. When Naka finally makes it back to his own world, after running one last Nightmare Fuel-filled gauntlet, we get a look at the Sign Maker's POV as he leaves Naka. We can see clearly he only has two things in his possession...a diamond sword, and 105 experience...something only one person had after slaying the Enderdragon..."Friend".
  • Third-Person Person: Ogre on occasion, when assuming the personalities of certain characters.
    • Weegee. Dear God, Weegee...
  • A Tragedy of Impulsiveness: Though his usual strategy is to be as cautious as possible, every once in a while Naka does something impulsive (mainly due to not paying attention).
    • In Dragon Quest 4 he nearly got the entire party killed after they exited a dungeon low on health and enchoosing to try and walk to town rather than Zoom, resulting a random encounter where they escape with only one character with a small sliver of health left. He Lampshades the trope after barely surviving the encounter.
    • Ogre himself is also guilty of this: during an episode of Jet Force Gemini he mocks shoots a tribal... Only to actually shoot one by accident.
  • Yandere: Sign Maker, a.k.a. "Friend" from Naka's Minecraft playthrough. According to the Behind The Scenes videos, Friend "did not take kindly to the idea of Naka meeting and speaking and hanging out with other people", implying that Friend killed all the people in the village and severely wounded Doggy with an explosion when Naka's back was turned because he wanted Naka all to himself.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: You want out of the mineshafts, Naka? Okay. We'll just plop you out here on a small island in the middle of the ocean.
    • The sad, sad fate of Doggie, Naka's first Minecraft pet in Part 12.
    • Episode 50 of Journey Home. After going through most difficult dungeon to date, the only thing worthwhile things he finds is an enchanted diamond helmet and a diamond block. Not wanting to have to go back through the dungeon to get out he tunnels out of the boss' room. It turns out that he passed it on the way down. Most of this hour-long episode could have been avoided if he just investigated the out-of-place brick wall. At the end you can hear him trying not to slip into a Madness Mantra.
    • In episode 1 of Fate's Grasp, the being watching over Naka seems to be fond of this, though Naka WAS trying to run away multiple times...
  • Yuri Fan: A light touch of this is shown in Naka's Let's Play of Touhou Mother.

"Until next time, everyone."
