Lets Play / Nnemonic

Go To
Another day, Another stream.

"Hey hey hey, it's me MikeNnemonic!"

MikeNnemonic is a YouTube Let's Player (or former Let's Player, anyways) and a Streamer on He was known for his LSD: Dream Emulator Let's Play as well as some videos like "The Trip Nnemonic".

As a note, after a run-in with an admin on Hitbox, Mike's gone back to using Twitch.

He's tried out Hitbox, starting from the March 24th 2015 stream. Here. He went back to Twitch after an incident though that got his account banned.

During his streams, he usually plays games while interacting with a cast of characters, whether they're chat regulars or fictional characters who are Running Gags. His streams are usually on during Fridays and Saturdays (and very rarely, on Sundays), unless some event or complication arises that prevents him from streaming.

Many people go to his streams due to his commentary and he is enough to make even a bad game silly and enjoyable. When he's not streaming games, with the help of some chat regulars he can find some videos that range from awesome, nasty, to Cringe Comedy. He is also very prone to using Viewer interaction, hence why most of the regulars are very known there.


Mike has been away from home due to his new trucking gig, so his streams aren't as consistent. UPDATE: Mike quit his old trucking job for a more local one meaning he'll be around everyday so streaming will become more consistent now.

You can also put in tropes related to other Chat Regulars streams and not just Mikes.

Aside from Mike, some of the regulars who attend his streams also have their own streaming channels.

Due to the Ambush Bug banning incident (and also because Twitch is a shitty site), most stream regulars moved to Hitbox (which seemingly is also going down the drain): They can be found here: Spot's, Default's, Ambush Bug's, and Bern's.

Those still on Twitch (at least for now) can be found here: Glack's and Soviet Steve's

There is now a chart for the other streams

     Games Mike has played  

Mike Nnemonic's Let's Plays and Streams provide examples of:

  • Aborted Arc: Any game Mike quits playing before finishing.
  • Accidental Art: A humorous case during one of the June 2015 streams where Mike brought Spiffy into the call and Bern convinced herself to get in the stream and she began to play music. One of which was the Breakfast Machine from Pee-wee's Big Adventure and Mike was given a video of it being the song mixed with "Ass and Titties", resulting in Mike believing they created an accidental mashup.
    Mike: Bern you've done something good! We created art!
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Some Youtube videos and games incite this to Mike.
  • A Day in the Limelight: A large majority of the stream characters are like this. Also Bern due to appearing in three games (Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing, Wrestling Revolution as "Bernphomet", and in Toilet In Wonderland).
  • Aerith and Bob: On one end we got Mike and (Soviet) Steve while on the other side of the name spectrum we have names like Bern, Odyro, Glackenburgen, Hatter, and Spiffy. Justified since a majority of the chat regulars go by their chat name in the streams.
  • The Alcoholic: Steve and Spunk, who vomited in his own stream one time due to being drunk.
    • Senior also shows up drunk in the chat sometimes. You can tell when his messages are nigh incomprehensible.
  • All Crimes Are Equal: Seen like this, especially in The You Testament stream.
    • There is a problem here if someone can get away with murder while a thief will be crucified.
  • Anachronism Stew: To be expected with a stream community like this.
  • Archive Panic: The Mikennemonic Archives. Also other users have their own stream archives on the same board. This could potentially make a few origins of some injokes or certain streams harder to find for some people.
  • Art Evolution: Not an evolution of "art" per se, but his later streams have a higher quality than his earlier ones due to a change in stream programs.
  • Artificial Stupidity: Mike has been known to exploit the AI of many enemies and NPCs in any games he plays, making them look stupid. An example of this is during the Kindegar TEN streams, he managed to survive an entire day by getting one of the monsters by making it walking in and out of a hat rack.
  • Artistic License – History: According to the streams, a man named Jebidiah was Jesus's Desciple who uses chi and shoots fireballs and is still alive to this day due to his godlike immortality. Justified since The You Testament wasn't exactly accurate to the Bible..
  • Ascended Extra: Mikes appearance in Lisa as Satan counts as this.
  • Ascended Fanboy: A large majority of Mikes chat.
  • Ascended Meme: Most stream characters like McWhimple, Pasqually, Jebidiah, Alan Beast, Cocaine, and LA Beast fit into this.
  • Attack Backfire: When the RUC tries to invade the streams, people get a good laugh at it instead of being afraid.
  • Audience Participation: A case of this when people skype Mike or suggest him games. This is also what makes Mike stick out compared to other streamers.
  • Audience Participation Failure: ...But in some cases, Mike acts in disgust by some games or videos or complete boredom, intentional or otherwise by the person who sent him them.
  • Audience? What Audience?: Mike sometimes acts like there is no one in the chat: Sometimes going as far as saying everyone is an alt of someone or They're in his mind.
  • Author Appeal: Mike is a fan of Fist of the North Star and plays Ai Wo Torimodose when he is about to surprise the chat. This is also how most stream characters end up sticking if Mike finds them appealing enough to look at more.
    • Stream regulars are also the same. Bern is a fan of Umineko: When They Cry so much that she adopted Bernkastel as her persona. Ambush Bug also likes the DC character of the same name and adopted the appearance of him and made Tenchi Muyo! as part of his thing. Soviet Steve adopted communism as his gimmick after being fascinated with the gimmick, complete with Joseph Stalin as his avatar.
  • Author Avatar: Mike's Pianist Hand counts for a literal case. Most of the chat regulars are drawn as who they use for their actual Skype, Twitch, or Hitbox avatars that represent them(I.E. Joseph Stalin for Soviet Steve, Bernkastel for Bern, And Ambush Bug for...Ambush Bug).
  • Big Bad Ensemble: The villains wiki, which was created by a lurker in response to people attempting to replace the RUC. Here.
  • The Bartender: Mike served as this in two games. The latter of which his attempts at pulling off sick maneuvers ended very badly.
  • The Big Guy: Jebidiah.
  • Big "NO!":
    Mike: NOO! Jebidiah, don't be deceased!
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: Usually what the entire community is seen as.
  • Birthday Episode: One of Mike's streams had him take skype calls and play games on his birthday which got so popular that in the end he made streaming a regular thing.
    • Also whenever someone has a birthday he does a small segment where he congratulates them on a birthday, in his own style.
  • Black-and-Gray Morality: Everyone in the chat falls into this for humorous effect. Even stream characters too to varying extents.
  • Black Comedy: A common thing in Mike's streams.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Several streams from people. Most notably anything made by M Dickie and Berns Postal 2 stream.
  • The Boxing Episode: Any streams involving Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing is this to Bern.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: During the Mogeko streams, the main protagonist expressed love to her brother that seemed more than just sibling love. It was unsurprising when Mike began to make Jokes and use this to his advantage.
  • Brown Note: All the cringe shown.
  • Call-Back: Occurs randomly in newer streams when older moments are talked about.
  • Cast of Snowflakes: Reflects the chat and characters.
  • Chew Toy: Garry or Bern used to serve as this to Mike, .
  • Child Hater: Most of the chat seems to be this.
  • Christmas Episode: Any streams revolving around Christmas.
  • The Church: Glacks church of Cornpops.
  • Put On A Bus: Some chat regulars disappear and sometimes reappear, with or without explanations(Personal problems, College, Bad Computers, forgetting to follow Mike on Twitch, etc)
  • Cloudcuckooland: Metaphorically and literally as a universe, the streams are this.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Bern was talking to Mike about Sakura Oogami, Mike insisted that she was a male and ended up photoshopping a censored dick onto her.
  • Corrupt Bureaucrat: Twitch and its admins are seen as this. Hitbox to a lesser extent (well, at least they give warnings instead of banning you outright). Hell, admins of any site the community's built on for that matter.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: The Troll Mr. Jizz qualifies as this.
  • Continuity Nod: Extremely common as of late with Mike or other chat members mentioning and reminiscing past events in the streams.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: It's strange how the stream chat users oftentimes have the color of their names associated with them. Redbear started a small mimicking gag involving changing the color of his name to the same one another user's using with this.
  • Crapsaccharine World: Twitch is seen as this post-muting. It was for a time the "go to" site for everyone to stream at and it was fairly consistent in everything. As it became more mainstream however, it ultimately began to mute peoples streams, delete archived streams(Which was bad for Mike), ban innocent people while leaving trolls unscathed, and it slowly became more glitchy and less reliable as time went by. It's why Mikes fanbase sees Twitch as a corrupt place to "live".
  • Crapsack World: A rather comedic case stemming from trolls and silly real life issues where it's metaphorically a "crapsack" world due to how insane everything is.
    • If we add in all the traits from the games Mike and others played as well as other stuff like the chat: The world is full of weird oddities, Jerkass's, idiots, violent people, A clan of cartoon characters who border on Nazism despite them thinking they are heroes, elitist gamers, psychopaths, eldritch abominations, omnipotent witches, exploding Hell penguins, cringe everywhere, weird stuff being treated as normal, people who show and embrace their weird fetishes no matter where they are, racists, sexists, and ancient, biblical times where people beat the everlasting shit out of each other for no reason and how murder gets you a minor sentence compared to theft or even standing up at night. It'd be an actual crapsack world if this was made literal.
  • Create Your Own Villain: With the Nnemonic Villains Wiki You literally can create your own villain!
  • Cringe Comedy: What most of the streams turn into when they view Youtube videos.
  • Crossover: A result of injokes, games being streamed, and stream jokes becoming a staple. Disgaea, Postal, Thief, LISA, Mutant League, Mdicky games, BlazBlue, Touhou Project, Metal Gear, Chuck E Cheese, DC Comics, Umineko: When They Cry and Fist of the North Star are just some examples of stuff that become a part of the streams in some form or another.
    • A more real example is that a few other L Pers and streamers go to Mikes streams including Mega G Wolf and Azuritereaction with the former being a stream regular who talks to Mike off and on streams and the latter got inspiration to do a few of his Let's Plays like LSD and Ib from Mike.
  • Denser and Wackier: Mikes streams in 2010-mid 2011 were fairly normal streams that didn't stick out. Come 2012 is when things got weirder and sillier with the inclusion of many stream characters, notable games, and chat regulars who'd come.
  • Double Entendre: Expect these a lot in Mikes streams.
  • Dysfunction Junction: In a more comical route with the chat regulars and stream characters due to how wildly different they are.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A case with Pepsiman: Who appeared in one of Berns streams before Mike played(or rather watched a longplay) of the game.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Early streams show Mike not showing the chat at all, no background music(and if there was any, it'd be quiet due to a low quality mic), no stream characters, and his stream program had a lower quality bitrate to it. Also a majority of the most well known chat regulars had little presence or simply weren't there.
  • Ensemble Cast: With an interesting group of chat regulars and stream characters, the streams have a unique cast.
  • Everything Is Racist: Mike tries to find anything racist and offensive in most stuff he plays or sees and loves to be offensive about it any way he can.
  • Everything Trying to Kill You: Seems like this in the Biblical Times according to the You Testament. At least for Jebidiah it's just a minor nuisance.
  • Expanded Universe: As more people began to stream, it has slowly turned from just Mikes streams to several people streaming. This has lead to in-jokes from one stream to be carried over to Mikes or other peoples.
  • Disney Death: In-universe. For some reason, Mikes Youtube fanbase seems to have though Mike actually died during his hiatus off the site and when he began to make youtube videos again, people thought he pulled this trope off.
  • Face Doodling: Mike Does this to some Deviantart pictures.
  • Fan Disservice: TWINKIE GUY
  • Fan Dumb: An in-universe/real life example with some of the chat. Often used as a gag.
  • Fantasy Kitchen Sink: Given the nature of the streams, this is to be expected.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • Flanderization: An intentional case to a large majority of everyone mentioned and is usually Played for Laughs.
  • Follow the Leader: Other stream regulars like Steve, Bern, Ambush Bug, and Glackenburgen do their own streams, frequently garnering at least a small portion of Mike's regulars in watching them.
    • He has been been inspired by Joel's Bob Ross's Super Mario Paint streams for him to try and replicate his own. A case of Tropes Are Not Bad since the chat themselves has enough enjoyment out of it even though his artwork isn't as good as Joels by comparison.
  • Gag Series: The streams can be seen as this in general.
  • Genre Savvy: Subverted since these are streams of many different games followed by videos and sometimes DeviantArt.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: So much NSFW stuff has been streamed through Mikes Twitch account and Twitch has yet to realize all this.
    • 2hot4twitch or 2hot4box.
  • Gilligan Cut: A very common trope in every stream.
  • Goldfish Poop Gang: The Radioactive Uber Clan slowly became this to hilariously exaggerated. It gets to the point where people believe they can't even breath correctly without fucking up.
  • Gross-Out Show: The latter half of the Hard Time stream is devoted to this with LA Beast.
  • Growing the Beard: A literal case: As time went on in the streams, Mike's beard has been almost doubling in size.
  • Halloween Episode: Any of the Halloween related streams.
  • Hellhole Prison: The Hard Time prison where Corrupt Cops run rampant, people like to pick fight, explosions happen everywhere, people die, and its difficult to get to the restroom. This doesn't stop Jebidiah though when he gets sent to jail.
  • He's Back: Mike began resuming his Let's Play of "Julians Quest" out of boredom and a way to waste time now after originally saying he didn't want to do LP's anymore. His subscribers on Youtube gave this reaction.
  • Ho Yay: Whenever people draw fanart of him, Mike always says people not to draw him fanart of him like this and stuff he can say can be twisted like this.
    Mike: I want one of you guys draw me as the Fucking Comic Book Incredible Hulk...Actually no forget that, one of you guys will end up drawing me fucking The Incredible Hulk.
    • When Glack in one of his streams was heard of the infamous "Son and husband" comment in one of the RUC's games directed to him and Soviet Steve, he briefly gushed over Steve.
  • Humiliation Conga: Read up every single thing the Radioactive Uber Clan has did on the streams and you'll see their plans have backfired A LOT.
  • Hypothetical Fight Debate: Some hypotheticals on Mikes streams can result in this.
    • Also Butt Monkeys tend to get this a lot.
  • Image Booru: The Nnemonic Booru which Bern designed as a way to archive any fanart material into.
  • Improbable Weapon User: According to security in Hard Time, anything, even a sandwich can be used as a weapon.
  • Internet Tough Guy: Most of the trolls seem to be this. And cringe-worthy people Mike and others find on the Internet.
    • This even applies to some users in the chat, especially during cringe video hour.
  • Interrupting Meme: Bake Sale and Very Cosmopolitian.
  • Insane Troll Logic: To Albert, he believes he is an army of various cartoon characters trying to save the world from demons who killed various members, attacked humans, and insulted Albert and he believes he's a hero despite his attempts at ruining the streams. He also sees himself as nothing but a good hero despite one of his videos basically has him mocking JewWario after his death and threatening to kill Nostalgia Critic, all the while threatening Mike to kill Bern or else his streams would be destroyed. I wish I was joking here.
  • Is This Thing On?: Whenever there is technical difficulties in the streams, Mike always says this in the mic.
  • It Is Beyond Saving: Twitch, given how to most of the chat, the site seems to get worse and worse as time goes on.
  • It Makes Sense in Context: Sometimes you'll hop in when the chat is talking about some weird out of place topic. Sometimes you'll figure out what sprung it up.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Some of the chat is like this...
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Most people go to the streams just to see Mike and listen to him regardless of what he plays or shows.
  • The Klan: The Radioactive Uber Clan is basically an odd, cartoon filled version of this with nazi-esque thinking.
  • Kick the Dog: MANY moments of these in streams.
  • Large Ham: Fat Swordsman and to a lesser extent, Mike himself can fall into this at times.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: When you combine the stream regulars, chat characters, trolls, and one-off characters, the list is pretty huge.
  • This Loser Is You: Mike comments how "People with no lives" come to his streams and sane people never go to them.
  • Madness Mantra: DeviantArt. Dear god DeviantArt...
  • Masochist's Meal: A majority challenges for LA Beast range to this, to say the least.
  • Manipulative Editing: The Radioactive Uber Clans wiki. It doesn't work that well...
  • Meaningful Name: Crusader: NO REMORSE and for a good reason.
  • Mistaken for Gay: A majority of people in the streams is like this.
  • Mood Whiplash: At times.
    • A more serious case was during the Miasmata stream, Mike heard gunshots outside and wondered where it came from. Turns out a stream later that it was his neighbor who shot himself...
  • Mundane Fantastic: In-universe. Everyone seems to treat witches, Moon Rabbits, communists, clowns, Red colored bears, Lizard People, A clan of cartoon trolls, and any and all of the stream characters and in-jokes as regular and normal parts of life. Greatly exaggerated in fanart and hypothetical universes.
  • My New Gift Is Lame: During one of the Christmas streams(Or one after it), Mike was talking about how his mother bought him an entire set of Duck Dynasty merchandise and the way he worded it implied this.
  • Nausea Fuel: LA Beasts videos qualify as this. Hell, a majority of Youtube videos are like this.
    • A Fanfiction involving Touhou characters Youmu Konpaku and Yuyuko Saigyouji dubbed "A Very Touhou Christmas" caused this.
    • DIPPER GOES TO TACO BALL. The less said, the better.
  • New Streaming site, new problems: When everyone jumped off of Twitch to Hitbox, things were good but they slowly fell apart. In Mikes case he had to go back to Twitch after encountering an admin, whom he casually mocked.
  • New Job Episode: Technically speaking, him getting the trucking job counts as this.
  • Odd Friendship: One has to wonder why Mike the chat, who are all wildly different in many ways manage to stay friends.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite Mikes streams hitting a surge in popularity mid 2011, he started since 2010, probably even sooner when his Youtube channel was becoming more popular.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Some users are known just by their usernames. Averted to some users though.
  • Once per Episode: Once per stream always expect one or more games being played, trolls coming in, chat rambling, Youtube videos being sent to Mike, Mike watching a Fat Swordsman or LA Beast video, Deviantart, and Mike ranting.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted since we have LA Beast and Alan beast. Also some chat regulars may fall under this. Even Mike himself shares names with other Mikes, in the stream or in the games.
    • For a more literal aversion, Soviet Steve seems to have a "Robo-Steve" equivalent.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: When Mike ain't in his carefree mood, you know something is serious.
  • Police Brutality: The Prison guards in Hard Time qualify as this.
  • Prison Episode: The Hard Time stream for Jebidiah.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Due to how long the streams have been running so far, you'd be forgiven if you thought some regulars have been around longer than they actually have.
  • Retconning the Wiki: A running gag on the RUC's own page due to excessive vandalism and trying to correct false and silly info.
  • Revolving Door Casting: Each stream has a few of the stream regulars and stream characters getting attention in different order.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Sels.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Things DID not turn out the greatest for Jebidiah after Jesus was crucified. Lets leave it at that.
  • Rogues Gallery: In the form of regularly appearing trolls and villains on the "Nnemonic villains wiki", designed just for that.
  • Running Gag: Too many to count.
  • Russian Roulette: During the Lisa RPG stream, mike found a bar where he can bet high money by having his own party members play Russian Roulette. Let's just looked like a mass suicide at the end.
  • Sanity Slippage: Mike, Bern, and Glack all experienced this in their own streams in some variation or another.
  • Self-Deprecation: Mike and a few members of the chat are known to do this. Some a bit more than others.
  • Seinfeldian Conversation: Seemingly impossible to sit through a stream without one of these occurring in the chat.
  • Silly Reason for War: The RUC and all other trolls try to attack Mike and company for trivial, personal, or minor reasons
  • Shoplift and Die: Whenever Mike tries to steal things in games, expect this.
  • Show Within a Show: Whenever Mike or the other streamers start streaming youtube videos.
  • Something Completely Different: Whenever Mike is sick one game he'll usually switch to another game or browse through Youtube or Deviantart.
  • Suicide as Comedy: When Mike is getting really sick of a game, he resorts to killing himself in-game and declearing it canon.
  • Take That!: When an admin came into Mike's stream when he was watching a video (which is against the rules and all), his reaction was to add a header that states along the lines of "Totally a crappy alpha FMV game."
  • Theme Music Power-Up: YU WA SHOCK.
  • Theme Tune: My Marie from Space Funeral counts as this after Mike streamed it and became a staple to the streams since.
  • Verbal Tic: Bern's tildes at the end of each sentence.
  • Weirdness Censor: In a world(or rather stream) where the cast consists of a disciple of Jesus who is also a wrestler and a 1000 year old god, An adorable anime dog, A yellow mutant who coaches a weak football team consisting of yellow skeletons, an extreme food eater who gets himself injured a lot, a raging black boxer, a big headed italian chef, A Fat Swordsman, Demonic penguins, A smoker, A soda mascot turned superhero, A happy go lucky clown, Witches, Soviets, Red colored bears, lizard people, sickly people who use crystals to cure them and make their fingers longer, comic book characters, Onis, a blue haired pedophile, a clan of borderline cartoon nazis, and other stranger shit, it's a wonder why Mike ain't affected yet.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Some chat users who used to be semi-prominent in the chat don't seem to show up anymore.
  • The Wiki Rule: Berns Wiki right here.
  • Wretched Hive: The original, old Mikennemonic forums have descended to this with trolls, weird posts, and otherwise unpleasant people due to lack of moderatorship and the fact that the current forums have actual admins who can IP ban.
  • Yandere: Ala, Yandere Simulator, which Mike played on stream.

Tropes mainly related to the other streamers

  • Everyone Is Armed: Most to all viewers in the other streams are usually MO Ds, allowing anyone to ban Alberts should they show up. Although, there really isn't much of a point, partly because Hitbox allows IP bans.
  • In-Joke: Shares their own little inside jokes as a smaller group compared to the rest of Mike's chat.
  • Spin-Off
  • Rotating Protagonist: For those with schedules, a different streamer for every couple of days. Others don't have schedules and usually stream whenever they feel like it.
  • Wham Episode: Ambush Bug's stream where he got IP banned from Twitch. This is the point where most of the non-Mike streamers moved on to using Hitbox.

"If you're watching, you've hit a new low."

How well does it match the trope?
