Damian and Kyle (left to right)

"Well hello there, and welcome to a new episode of Pwnage! Where I play a random video game, with my friend Kyle."

Pwnage is a channel created by Damian (makemebad35) and Kyle (twelthofadime). Their videos consist of them competing in various games as well as occasionally doing a full Let's Play.

Tropes that apply to this channel:

  • Aborted Arc: A lot of the games they play never get finished. To name a few, all of the Five Nights at Freddy's games, The Walking Dead and Grand Theft Auto V.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Discussed in their The Walking Dead Let’s Play when talking about Sarah.
    Kyle: Is this girl‘s brain not working right?
    Damian: Eeeuuuuuhhh- she was born with a quarter brain.
    Kyle: Is that what it was? (laughs) SHE GOT THE QUARTER BRAIN.
  • Angrish: Damian, in their Super Hexagon video, gets increasingly enraged towards the end of his turn. Kyle deliberately made it worse by taunting and insulting him.
  • Anime Hair: Kyle lampshades this trope when Damian states that Goku is the hero in their Dragon Ball Z: Budokai video.
    Damian: He's the good guy, Kyle.
    Kyle: I can tell by the hair.
  • Advertisement:
  • Baby Talk: Kyle does this sometimes to mock Damian for his idiocy.
  • Big "NO!": Damian constantly uses this whenever something goes wrong.
  • Black Comedy: Their series basically revolves around this. No topic is too controversial to joke about.
  • Bond One-Liner: Kyle has one of these in their Hitman: Absolution video:
    Kyle: Hold on, I'm going to barter with this man. (Proceeds to stick an axe in his head)
    Damian: Holy shi-alright.
    Kyle: Negotiations went well.
  • Butt-Monkey: Damian is constantly the butt of Kyle's jokes and loses the most competitions.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Damian, much to Kyle's annoyance.
  • Cuckoo Snarker: Damian is definitely bizarre in thinking, but he's able to snark with Kyle.
    • Near the end of Creepypasta Land part 1, Damian sarcastically agrees after Kyle misremembers the name of Jeff the Killer:
      Kyle: What is that creepypasta called? It's Jack something- there's Jack and Jane.

    • In one of their Mario Kart 8 Let's Plays, Damian kinda has a point:
      Kyle: Of course, I make more money than you do. You're an idiot.
      Damian: Hey, idiots make money.
      Kyle: But not you!
    • At the beginning of Slender: Hospice, Kyle is introducing themselves; Damian then interjects by energetically snarking at Kyle.
      Damian: Really?!, We're playing PWNAGE?!
      Kyle: Shut the fuck! UP!
    • This snark-to-snark bit from Trollface Quest 3 between Damian and Kyle where Damian jabs at Kyle for accidentally implying he's shorter than 5 ft.
      Damian: Is this you right here? That's how you die.
      Kyle: Yeah, that's how I die, Damian. I went to the bottom of a five foot ocean, stared up at the sky and went-
      Damian: five foot? What are you saying? Are you saying you're three feet?
      Kyle: Shut the fuck up. I'm five foot SEVEN!
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • In Vanish, the monster lets out a disturbing noise, Kyle states it was a nasty fart.
    • Damian claims Shrek is opening his arms up for a hug in Swamp Simulator. Kyle immediately snarks at the mere idea.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Both of the men qualify for this, but Damian more so. Best seen in their Whack Your... Let's Play, as Damian imagines the teacher as someone from the 2nd grade, and constantly laughs maniacally while killing him.
    Kyle: Why are you laughing so manically!?
  • Cynic–Idealist Duo: Their whole dynamic kinda revolves around this. Kyle plays the bitter and snarky cynic; Damian plays the upbeat and kinder idealist.
  • Enraged by Idiocy: In Earthworm Jim video, Damian performs dances and makes odd noises with his yodeling pickle. This causes Kyle to eventually rage quit.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Kyle in their Trollface Quest video starts to feels it was a little much for Damian to repeat that he's a piece of filth and his parents are ashamed. Not to mention Damian also kept adding to the self deprecation.
    Kyle: Stop being so hard on yourself!
    (Later in the video)
    Kyle: Well. I just think you're a bad guy.
  • Foreshadowing: Unintentional. In their Call of Duty: Black Ops Let's Play where Damian and Kyle are on the same team for once, when Kyle is throwing flash bangs around in frustration at not killing anyone in a while, Damian ask if he's trying to flash bang him. This actually ends up happening. And Damian, in his blindness, ends up shooting his own teammate, costing them both the match.
  • Honor Before Reason: Kyle lampshades this in their Totally Accurate Battle Simulator Gameplay when the last soldier of the army Kyle is fighting runs to his army alone.
    Damian: He ran headfirst into death. That makes him a man.
    Kyle: That makes him a fucking idiot.
  • Insult Backfire:
    • Played for Laughs, but a very subtle one that happens in a Mortal Kombat 9 Let's Play:
      Damian: So I used to love Cyrax as a kid, but I think Sektor might be a little bit better.
      Kyle: (mocking) I used to love Sektor as a kid. When I would sit in my room and play with my dick while my parents were ashamed of me, I love talking about Sektor to all my imaginary friends.
      Damian: Are you talking about yourself, Kyle?
    • Damian's attempts at insulting Kyle fall incredibly flat, this one from Vanish is notable.
      Damian: You're probably get laid eggs on really fast.
      Kyle: That was the worst insult you've ever had in your fucking life.
    • Kyle also manages to do this in a Injustice: Gods Among Us Let's Play:
      Kyle: Gotham City doesn't exist after Zack Snyder destroyed it with dumb.
      Damian: He did?
      Kyle: (at the time) Didn't you see the new Superman movie?
      Damian: Gotham City is-
      Kyle: You don’t have brain cells, listen-
      Damian: Gotham City is Batman!
      Kyle: Wow, I just insulted myself. Sorry, Zack Snyder.
    • Their I Don't Even Know Video at one point has Kyle insulting the game being nonsensical and illogical but mixes up his words, he lampshades his word choice right after.
      Kyle: It doesn't have to make sense! Who would ever thought that a game had to make any knowledge... or- or logic. I meant logic, why'd I have to say knowledge? God, I made myself seem like a dumb dumb too.
  • Jerkass: Kyle can occasionally become this. Such as when he made Damian say he was a piece of filth and his parents should be ashamed of him in their Trollface Quest video.
    Kyle: I will personally invest in a-in a tombstone big enough to all of that in
  • Kill 'Em All: Their Conker's Bad Fur Day video ends with both Kyle and Damian and the two other AI killed Mafia style due to their inability to steal the money.
    Damian: yeah we’re dead!! Haha! We're all fuckin' DEAD!! So funny!!!
  • Lampshade Hanging: Kyle, who usually plays the Straight Man, tends to abuse this.
  • Large Ham: Both men have a tendency for lacking indoor voices, usually for laughs.
  • Manchild: Damian acts overly childish in basically all of the videos he and Kyle are in.
  • Never Say That Again: Implied after Damian says this in a Portal 2 video:
    Damian (without hesitation): That would be so cool if you could make a portal in your dick, and we could go in each other's dicks.
    Kyle: I want to tell you, if you ever say something like that again, I'm going to crucify you.
  • Platform Hell: They covered a large number of these
  • Rage Quit:
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Damian is the eccentric and passionate red oni to Kyle's observant and cold blue oni.
  • Running Gag:
    • Kyle calling Damian a pedophile. So much so that at one point, Damian lampshades this in Shrek Simulator.
      Damian: I don't fucking touch kids, fuck you. I just went along with it because you always say it.
    • Kyle saying snare drum every time one of them makes a bad joke.
  • Sarcasm Failure:
    • Kyle, in the Shrek Simulator video, snarks about damian touching kids. Only to break down into laughter after Shrek slides towards them A-posing as a slowed down version of All Star plays.
    • Kyle is stunned and lampshades this after Damian says the following in Slendytubbies 2.
      Damian: I believe it's a cat in heat, so you better be ready to fuck it or else it's gonna die.
      Kyle: I've got no words for what you just said.
  • Self-Deprecation: Kyle brings in multiple videos how this channel was a mistake and even says he wishes to escape.
  • Signature Laugh: Kyle and Damian, Kyle being maniacal while Damian tends to be more giggly.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: They can't go one video without swearing like madmen. Their preferred method of using their swears contrast however, Damian more on Cluster F-Bomb usage while Kyle is more cutting and will tend to use Precision F-Strike or Atomic F-Bomb.
  • The Snark Knight:
    • Kyle is extremely sarcastic, disapproving of everything and even self-deprecates here and there.
      • He expresses this in the World's Hardest Game 2 video.
        Kyle: Don't apologize to me, apologize to society that you will contribute nothing throughout.
      • After he wins in the World's Hardest Game 2 video.
        Kyle: I know I won. Society didn't win today.
      • Kyle in Nighttime Visitor wearily rambles about the idea of people in the future digging this video up.
        Kyle: This will be like a mystery- like anthropologists will somehow find this shitty video and just be like: Oh! Well appears to be some loud-mouthed white trash degenerate and some simpleton gap-toothed autistic kid who wandered around playing, uhh, what appears to be some simulation built to make people want to end their own lives!
  • Subverted Kids' Show: Damian teamed-up with Brock Baker for a series of this, where Goofy threatens Damian over money Goofy lent him, culminating Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Winnie-the-Pooh trying to kill Damian over it. It also includes swearing, Goofy stating he killed Clarabelle Cow to make his boots (and fed Damian pieces of what was left), and Goofy getting off on being smacked over a second floor railing and into a poll table. A later video featured Goofy hounding Damian into getting Disney+.
  • Suicide as Comedy: Kyle is pretty pessimistic and makes jokes about killing himself a lot.
    • Kyle pretends to choke himself to death during the Super Mario World video.
    • Their "5 Minutes to Kill Yourself" video is chock full of this.
      Kyle: Your life is a stream of shit! It needs to Stop!
    • Kyle, in their Shrek Simulator video, gets tired of listening to the slowed down All Star emitting from Shrek, to which he considers letting Shrek kill him:
      Kyle: I almost wanna run towards him so I can end this, so I don't have listen to that fucking song.
  • Take That!: No one is safe from Kyle's snark. In Kyle's introduction of Pokemon Stadium - KILLER POKEMON, he snarks at the caged violence between animals while maintaining a Moe look.
    Kyle: The winner of today's competition will be the individual who can kill other's cute and cuddly pokemon the fastest. Clearly showing us that this was made by the Japanese.
  • 10-Minute Retirement: Damian gives up briefly in the Left 4 Dead 2 video
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!:
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: While they do throw insults at each other, they don't seem to hate each other entirely.
