His avatar as of Amazing Mirror


725roy (Sometimes known as Roy725, according to TV Tropes) is a Let's Player on youtube. Though he isn't very well known, he plays for "the fun of doing Let's Plays" and produces surprisingly decent content. On his channel he mainly LPs Nintendo games, specifically hand held ones mostly on the Gameboy Advance, but sometimes he does switch it up and play some console games and even certain flash games, like QWOP, or his game, Fruit Fury. Also on his channel is the occasional Vlog, including his trip to PAX Prime 2012, and if you look back far enough, his school's play productions.

He also does some co-commentaries with other youtubers such as poz159 (with Poz's blind LP of Metroid Fusion), and is a member of TheBestWorstLetsPlays. Likewise there have been many guests on his channel as well, with one big co-commentary on the final of his blind Super Metroid LP. He also has a twitter which can be found here and a backlog page which can be found here. Shout-out page is here


Some of his guests include:

Games he has Let's Played (In Chronological Order):

His Let's Plays and other videos provide examples of:

  • 108: The amount of swings Roy does and the Practice Lake.
    "Are we gonna die 'cause I got 108 swings?"
  • Aborted Arc: His Sonic Advance 2 LP
  • And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt: From Episode 1 of Zero Mission: "I committed mass genocide and all I got was this lousy t-shirt".
  • Angrish: "You flipping-dipping poop pants!" is one of the many examples of this trope Roy demonstrates.
  • Arc Number: 725. Some of his shorter videos are 7:25, and apparently his birthday is July 25th.
  • Artificial Stupidity: Accuses Swampy of this whenver something goes wrong, or when Swampy does something Roy doesn't want him to do.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: During Red Rescue Team this would happen whenever Roy saw ANY item.
  • Bee Afraid: The WHOLE premise of Episode 1 of Zero Mission. The video was aptly named "Let's Play Metroid: Zero Mission Pt: 1 (Oh God, the Bees)"
  • Berserk Button: In Magma Cavern he starts freaking out due to the Artificial Stupidity and poison, with no solution to the point where it breaks him, both physically and mentally. note 
    "Sometimes, you can't win." *sighs* "Sometimes, sometimes you can't win. You just can't, you just can't win. Y'know, sometimes you can't fucking win. Ah my f-awwgh. Sometimes, I like to think that you can't win. Sometimes, when I'm alone, I vaseline, butt fudge. See-" *sighs*.
  • Big "NO!":
    • When Swampy dies in Silent Chasm Roy treats us to a chipmunk-styled "NO".
    • After Roy fails at the tennis machine by 2 Points Roy treats us to a nice "NO".
  • Blah Blah Blah: Whenever the text scrolls too fast or he just doesn't care, he basically does this.
  • Blatant Lies: Somehow, he convinced Poz during Metroid Fusion that the ARC sector was the sky world, when it was actually the ice world.
  • Born Lucky: Out of the 30ish people called up to play at The Runaway Guys' Thrown Controllers Panel, he gets called up to play and actually won one round.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: He borrows Naka Teleeli's catchphrase of "Welcome back to Kirby and the Amazing Mirror! Why is it so amazing? Because..."
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: "Skype, shut up" sums up the whole situation pretty nicely.
  • Brief Accent Imitation: Quite Often.
  • Camp Gay: One Word: Wigglytuff.
  • Catchphrase: He uses many different catchphrases including, but limited to:
  • Call-Back:
    • During Poz's Metroid Fusion LP, Roy references his Blind LP of Super Metroid by commenting "At least it isn't tilting..."
    • In the second episode of Power Tour, he says "The following morning" in a similar way he said "The next morning".
  • Chewing the Scenery: "IT'S TILTING!" from the first episode of Super Metroid and "THE SCREEN IS SHAKING" from the finale.
  • Cliffhanger: He seems to be pretty fond of these, and often uses them before certain bosses.
  • Content Warnings: "So much flashing it's inducing seizures. Better not watch it, kids under 6!" from the premier of Amazing Mirror.
  • Corpsing: Roy, Matt, and Poz all do this through the first part of the Super Metroid Credits.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Almost every boss in Amazing Mirror excluding Mega Titan and Dark Mind, in contrast, almost every boss does this to him on the first fight with said boss in Super Metroid.
    • Also the tennis matches against Sophia and Mason, Roy aces them both 5 times out of the 8 serves that he served, and returns almost all of the serves for winners.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: At the beginning of Episode 12 of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Roy points out how much he likes the music that is playing via on screen text, and then compliments the music again right before entering the dungeon.
  • Determinator: With only 43 Missiles, 24 Super Missiles, and 782 units of energy note , after 4 HOURS, Roy beats Ridley, and then proceeds to rejoice.
    "I started recording at 11:30... It's now 3."
  • Enraged by Idiocy: Roy gets VERY upset when the AI does something stupid.
  • Epic Fail: He dies on WISPY WOODS on Kirby's Dreamland. Supposedly in his failed recording, he did WORSE.
  • Four Is Death: By the end of Sky Tower in Red Rescue Team, Roy had exactly 4444 Poke. Ironically, he didn't die during the Rayquaza fight, but rather in Stormy Sea.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Doubles as a Shout-Out, in episode 9 of Power Tour, at approximately 1:43, the words, "CAT PLANET! *DINK*". It's also worth noting that Sand Canyon 1 music is playing.
  • Funny Background Event: In the finale of Super Metroid, screams can be heard in the background right as the credits start to roll. Roy, Poz and Matt all hear this and proceed to laugh.
  • Genre Savvy: But not TOO genre savvy. Namely, his Metroid savviness shows more or less in Super Metroid.
  • Get On With It: His reveal of his Red Rescue Team LP was like this wasting a full minute recapping all the clues.
  • Giggling Villain: Occasionally during Metroid Fusion, especially when he's "helping" Poz.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Too flipping much.
  • Helium Speech: Whenever Roy has to speed up going through a dungeon, he generally resorts to using this tactics, often producing hilarious sounding content.
    "I'm a chipmunk" note 
  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: The titles of the episodes where Roy goes to Mt. Thunder, Mt. Blaze, and Frosty Forest are named around an adjective related to the mountain and a synonym of anger. note 
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: So many...
    • "Holy Moley!"
    • "I Guess you could say this house is BERRY well built" note 
    • "You can take a Rhydon my big green tractor."
    • "I like tubes, they're totally tubular!"
    • "I guess you could say it's a real FOUR PAW"
  • It Is Pronounced Tropay: He pronounces Zebes as Zee-beez as opposed to the official pronunciation, Zee-bis.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Roy provides HEAVY amounts of this.
  • Large Ham: Without a doubt.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Played for Laughs in Metroid Fusion
  • Let's Play Curse: In the first episode of Amazing Mirror, Roy fails and then tells the view he practiced, literally 5 MINUTES before he started recording.
  • Makes Just as Much Sense in Context: Matt's quote "No I want an Arcanine, I don't want a Charizard" in the Finale of Super Metroid. Everyone proceeds to crack up.
  • Mood-Swinger: Like crazy in Magma Cavern, especially during his "breakdown".
  • Never My Fault: In Episode 3 of Amazing Mirror, he blames the video quality on the viewer's eyesight.
  • Oh, Crap!: Roy says this quite often.
  • Old Shame: He considers anything before Amazing Mirror to be just awful.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: "Easiest. Boss. Ever."
  • Running Gag: His Game Over counter in Super Metroid. note 
    • Also the not-as-accurate Luma Suicide Count from Super Mario Galaxy Versus
    • The Game Over counter appears to have returned for Zero Mission, this time with pictures of Schir holding up a piece of paper with the number on it.
  • Sarcastic Clapping: All the time, especially in Metroid Fusion.
  • Self-Deprecation: Happens quite often.
  • Sequence Breaking: Happens quite a bit in Amazing Mirror.
    • He tried doing this in Zero Mission. So far, it hasn't really worked out for him.
  • Serious Business: Apparently he believes card games are serious business.
  • Shipper on Deck: He ships Samus and Draygon, and that's not even the weirdest shipping he does.
  • Sibling Rivalry: With Tim
  • Stealth Pun: Episode 9 of Power Tour is named "I Screwed Up" which is meant to reference the fact that he failed miserably at Jump Gym, but it's also worth noting that he also does his favorite minigame, Swift Spin, which involves riding screws up and down.
  • Sublime Rhyme: "Don't go away, Roy will be back, another day!"
  • Take That!: To his hometown of Minneapolis with his constant complaining of the cold.
    "It's so cold... just like Minnesota."
  • The X of Y: "Into the dune of dusty!"
  • Unusual Euphemism: "That was easy as peasy"
  • Vocal Dissonance: Rayquaza certainly doesn't sound like what you'd expect it to sound like...
    • Whisker and Paula. Just Whisker and Paula.
  • Wall of Blather
  • Who Names Their Kid Magnemite's Friend?
    • He also asks this about Sass.

How well does it match the trope?
