Pink Kitty Rose, Cat Gamer!
Pink Kitty Rose (real name: Sammy) is a person who does playthroughs of video games on YouTube. An avid fan of platformers, mostly Mega Man, she engages in Let's Plays on her account.

What makes Pink unique from the Eleventy Zillion other Let's Play accounts is two things. First, most of her videos include captions or annotations explaining what to do in that game instead of relying on verbal commentarynote . Second, she's one of the few successful enough to warrant a website to showcase her works, though it has closed down as of fall 2018.

Her YouTube account can be found here.

She now has a fangame. See here for more.

Tropes applying to her or her playthroughs:

  • Glass-Shattering Sound: Courtesy of post-production in The Stinger of part 28 of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Pink sings along to the Death Mountain theme, then the view distorts with a sound effect of a window cracking. A few seconds after she stops, the video shatters.
  • Guide Dang It!: Referred to by name in regards to part of the final dungeon in Zelda II.
  • Hilarious Outtakes: Her Shovel Knight and Super Mario Sunshine have outtake reels at the end of the episodes, unless there isn't any to show off.
  • Irony: During her A Super Mario Thing playthrough, Pink swore she never had or would play a Touhou game. One month later, she did the eighth game for a live broadcast and shortly after that, a playthrough of Mega Mari. Then her fans created Pink Rose Garden Touhou.
  • Left It In: During Part 20 of her Super Mario Sunshine run, the boss music usually reserved for her outtakes reel starts playing too early, and she states that she'll Fix It in Post. She then acknowledges that it might not be so easy to do. The final video still includes the flawed music cue, and a lack of music cue in the place it was supposed to be.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: More of the Straight Gay Distaff Counterpart take on this trope than the girly-girl take.
  • Little "No": Has one of these, almost unheard, when she witnesses Charles's fate in the Valiant Hero route of The Henry Stickmin Collection.
  • Malicious Misnaming: During randomizers for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, she occasionally refers to Young Princess Ruto as Princess von Bitchface.
  • Mind Screw: Her thoughts on the final Zelda II dungeon as a whole.
  • Odd Name Out: Her work golems in the "Feed the Beast" streams are named based on their tasks (such as Treebert and Lumberjohn)...except for Toppy, who was instead named after an odd quirk in which it twirls constantly.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her reaction to a 1st turn Armageddon in Worms, thanks to CutManMike. She has this reaction to varying degrees any time someone breaks out Armageddon or a Banana Bomb, but as Pink notes in the video, the sheer improbability of actually getting a first turn Armageddon...
  • Orphaned Series: Pink has practically relocated to Twitch, and cited disinterest to continue using YouTube during a January 2020 stream, leaving her Metroid Prime playthrough orphaned.
  • Pet-Peeve Trope: In-Universe: Real Is Brown and most female fanservice tropes.
  • Player Tic: Pink has been known to fire in time to the music when she's not doing anything else of note onscreen. She also makes Mario duck in time to the music in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and makes Yoshi stick his tongue out in time to the music in Yoshi's Island when doing an Auto-Scrolling Level.
  • Precision F-Strike:
    • She refers to the Zelda II scorpions as being "bloody annoying".
    • She occasionally swears in live streams and Mega Man races.
  • Pun: Typically on the receiving end from her friends and those who watch her live streams. As an example: during Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, one of the sub-quests required her to master four different weapons. While carrying out this lengthy task in a room full of minotaurs:
    Roahm: I knew Wind's quests were full of bull, but this is ridiculous.
  • Punny Name: Her space headquarters in "Feed the Beast" is dubbed PAWSA, as a pun on NASA.
  • Rage Quit: Pink is calm and patient enough to avoid this during her live streams. That being said, she came fairly close to losing it a couple of times:
  • Replacement Goldfish: From her "Feed the Beast: Interactions" streams.
    • Once her ice dragon Blep ate Gertrude, one of Pink's sheep, she designs a shelter...and spawns another sheep and names it Gertrude.
    • Her colosseum has an NPC that she dubs "Emperor Pawpatine". Occasionally he would die from rogue enemies when she battles, and each time she spawns a replacement. She finally gives the latest iteration, Totally Not Zombatine, an invisible barrier.
  • Running Gag:
    • Again in the Worms videos: Pink forgetting that the Banana Bomb's great explosion radius was not increased by a Double Damage powerup.
    • Shagg's and Mike's girder shananigans. They use girders more than any other player by far, and woe to everyone if either should get a starter pack....
      Zack: "Next time on Worm Ball Z, more girders."
    • Running prevalent in her Super Mario Maker streams, Pink breaking levels.
    • In later Jackbox games, CutmanMike joining the game using variations of his handle (GutsmanMike, PlugmanMike, etc.)
    • During her live streams of randomizer runs for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, race or otherwise, any seed with early Pegasus Boots is declared cursed.
    • In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, each time she catches a black bass, she cues up metal music.
  • Say My Name: After dealing with one too many puns during a live stream of Undertale:
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Discussed. There are points in a game where she does not like certain mechanics in a game. Double-tap dashes and motion controls are an example of this.
  • Self-Deprecation: Pink adds commentary after recording, sometimes months after, and sometimes comments on the crazy stuff she did. The best example is her Yoshi's Island videos were recorded significantly before she started adding commentary and she admonishes her "past self" for the more unusual behavior.
  • Self-Imposed Challenge: Sometimes she gives herself a challenge to make a playthrough more interesting. These frequently include a No-Damage Run, or a No Death Run if the other one is too hard for the game.
  • Sequence Break:
    • A Running Gag during her Super Mario Maker streams. If she finds a way to skip sections of a course, she will use it.
    • In some episodes in her Super Mario Sunshine, she used shortcuts to obtain some of the Shine Sprites, then shows off how to play those courses normally. One instance is in Episode 18, in which she glitches her way to a pool using bananas.
    • In Metroid Prime, the Space Jump is normally obtained late in the game. Thanks to a glitch in the Gamecube version, which Pink is using, that involves an attemped scan while moving, it's the first item she obtains.
  • Shout-Out:
  • The Silent Bob: She only uses two kinds of commentaries on her LPs: Via text or in some occassion vocally. A Link to the Past and Shovel Knight is where she does things vocally and with friends with the former.
  • Signing Off Catchphrase: As of late 2020, she closes out her YouTube videos with "Take care!"
  • Spanner in the Works: Farming materials from Ender Chickens using liquid antimatter in a "Feed the Beast: Interactions" stream went south after an enemy skeleton destroyed a block of antimatter, causing like blocks to crumble. This triggers Disaster Dominoes that resulted in a hole in the world that Pink had to patch up.
  • Spectacular Spinning: Has a liking for Mega Man 3's Top Spin and Mega Mari's Rolling Slash. Spinnnnnnn~!
  • Spoiled by the Format: In her Super Mario Sunshine videos, she would post any outtakes at the end of the video, with a title card immediately before these outtakes were shown. Some recordings actually contained no outtakes, and these would contain a brief "No Outtakes!" animation shortly after displaying the outtakes card. This set up a subversion of this trope in one video; the co-comms thought there would be no outtakes because the video had reached the outtakes card but the video was almost over, only to be surprised that there actually was one short outtake about the length that the "No Outtakes!" animation would have been.
  • Symbol Swearing: Only happened once, and that was when she was really, really mad.
  • Take That!: Mostly at things agitating her in the game she's playing. Much more frequent and about other things in the live broadcasts.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: In-Universe, Pink expresses her disdain for Klariskrays in Phantasy Star Online 2 due to her personality. During episode 2 when she's an enemy, Pink prioritizes her and vows to kick her like a football. She's even willing to smack around clones created from her.
  • That One Level: invokedAdmitted that her Super Mario Maker 2 level, "Tubular Terror", is one, due to bully wrangling, wall jumping, and other sorts of acrobatics, combined with a clear condition that doesn't allow landing after a jump. She'd show bewilderment when she gets a notification that someone is taking a crack at it.
  • Theme Naming: In her "Feed the Beast" streams:
    • Cats are named after the idols from Splatoon: Kali (after Callie), Marie, and Pearl are tabbies, while Marina is a black cat.
    • Parrots are named after Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles villains: Bebop and Rocksteady.
    • Golems are given Meaningful Names, typically based on their designated tasks. Toppy is an odd subversion to the theme.
  • True Companions: The only way to describe her relationship with Roahm Mythril, Shagg, Kit and BlackRaiden, to the point where she refuses to name one of them as her best friend.
  • The Voiceless: Usually Pink herself, at least on her YouTube channel's earlier videos. She doesn't actually say all that much without others around, and her voice tends to inspire Viewer Gender Confusion.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Both her fursona and her human avatar have bright pink hair.


How well does it match the trope?
