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 is 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.
  • Advertisement:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!?
  • 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.
  • Informed Deformity: Kyle calls Damian ugly several times but he looks pretty average, Kyle likely just calls him ugly for laughs. The only times where he looks ugly is whenever he makes weird faces like in their Five Nights at Freddy's 3 video.
  • 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 Batman!
      Kyle: Wow, I just insulted myself. Sorry, Zack Snyder.
  • 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.
    • although Kyle has his moments too, like when he dressed as a clown in their first twisted metal let’s play. Apparently for Kyle this is a old shame.
      Damian: You dressed like a clown in our last match.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 a his boots (and fed Damian pieces of what was left), and Goofy getting off on being smacked 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, getting tired of listening to the slowed down All Star emitting from Shrek:
        Kyle: I almost wanna run towards him so I can end this, so I don't have listen to that fucking song.
  • 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.
