Noob Kingdom (formerly known as You're Probably Better Than Us) is a YouTube Let's Play series hosted by PKLpikachu (Kirsten) and her college friend Tidbits (Nick). So far, they have played games on the SNES and the Nintendo 64, all the while providing live commentary with comments on their questionable skills, sexual jokes, and the kind of vitriol only two best friends can have. You can watch their videos here.

Tropes that apply to Noob Kingdom are:

  • Casual Kink: PK's bondage fetish is first mentioned in episode 5 of Super Mario World.
  • Catchphrase: Lampshaded by Tidbits when noting that PK says "Fuck you" almost all the time.
  • Cuteness Proximity: PK tends to call small, cute enemies "Buddy" when she sees them. Also calls Boos "Ghosties" in their Super Mario World series.
  • First Kiss: PK discusses hers in A Link to the Past episode 2.
  • Greek Chorus: Tidbits's roommate, Aaron. When he's not watching anime on his own computer, he's making fun of Tidbits's and PK's playing.
  • Ill Girl: PK is often sneezing during their videos. PK reveals, according to YouTube's video analytics, mentioning her sneezing in the video title is what caused episode 11 of Super Mario Bros. to get hundreds of views.

  • It's a Long Story: Said by PK when she mentioned being the leader of Team Awesome during episode 4 of Super Mario World.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Inverted. The two usually call each other by their real names rather than their nicknames.

    • Tidbits shipping Bowser and Peach to justify how Koopas are made
    • Tidbits: "Suck it!" PK: "Maybe I will!"
    • When an anime is mentioned off-hand or by name in the video, it'll probably be listed in the video description as "the best anime ever". This is usually sarcastic.
    Description of Donkey Kong Country -Part 9-: Kiss X Sis and Oreimo are legitimately the best anime ever.
    • PK stopping herself before mentioning something about her sexual experience.
  • Something Completely Different: The channel has a few voice acting videos up along while everything else are Let's Plays.
    • Sock Video is a recent completely different video featuring live-action footage
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Tidbits during the finale of Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
  • Self-Deprecation: The title of the show itself acknowledges the hosts are not that good at video games even after the name change.
  • Share Phrase:
    • "Suck it!". However, when said by Tidbits, it's usually followed by PK with "Maybe I will."
    • "Nailed it." Usually said when narrowly escaping death or failing hilariously.
  • Talker and Doer: Tidbits as the Talker is the superior gamer out of the duo and PK as the Doer is the one who edits the videos and manages the upload schedule.
  • Tempting Fate: In Mega Man episode 3:
    Tidbits: By the way, those spikes are an insta-kill.
    PK: Immediately jumps into a pit of spikes
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: PK and Tidbits throw insults at each other, but at the end of the day, they're still best friends.
