"Ya nerds!"

SuperButterBuns started her Youtube channel in 2015 on January 16th and has rocketed in the subscriber count. Her main series on Youtube is a beginner's guide to video games, in which she gives you tips and tricks on how to make the viewer's experience a little better. She also occasionally uploads stream highlights from her escapades in horror games, like Outlast, Alien: Isolation and Pony World 3. Usually joined by her co-host and "gal pal", SpoopyJulz or CashewEvan. Further co-hosts include Oli, Kerbecks, Kuroheta, and Anima.

    Super Butter Buns For Beginners Guides: 

    Super Butter Buns started playthroughs of: 
  • Shadow of the Colossus
  • Katamari Damacy
  • Gravity Rush
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Super Butter Buns provides examples of:

  • Actually Pretty Funny: Anytime she gets overly pissed at some game mechanic being stubborn or overly sensitive, you can count on her streaming audience, or the people in the physical room with her, to point this out. In the example mentioned below, the people in the room with her were crying with laughter near the end.
  • Anime Hair: Both her cartoon and real-life selves have got some spiky stuff going on.
    • The style of which was specifically cribbed off of Final Fantasy Versus XIII era Prince Noctis.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Usually Played for Laughs, She tends to "admire" the fanservice given by the male characters, especially Sidon in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild FOR BEGINNERS, She calls him a "quite a specimen" and takes a lot of photos of him with the Sheikah Slate.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: True to her name, her internet persona is, in fact, a piece of bread (cornbread, specifically).
  • Advertisement:
  • Bait-and-Switch: When talking about Birth By Sleep, she's praising the best character, while Aqua comes into focus, but she's really talking about Terra.
  • Berserk Button: Her avatar is a golden buttered bun. Do NOT confuse it for a twinkie.
    • If her rant on always having Drop Me Not items equipped in Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] is to be believed, she has a major hate-boner for the drop system in that game.
    • To really see her lose her shit, watch the clip of her playing Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne where she forgets the solution to a door puzzle and proceeds to go apeshit for eight minutes. She later admitted some of it was her Chewing the Scenery, but the majority of it was her legitimately pissed off at being unable to remember which door was the answer.
  • Big "YES!": Begins screaming with joy when she realizes that Sora made it into Smash.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: Petey Piranha, who donated $500 during her Persona 4 Golden marathon, which wound up throwing the chat into chaos.
    • Not to be outdone, another person during one of Buns' 2018-end-of-year streams donated $1000 for her to "buy a new suit." The chat's reaction was... enthusiastic to say the least.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite how silly she can get, she's still experienced and good at gaming and making videos.
    • She's actually certified in making and editing videos. She attended a course in college.
    • While she does mumble to her audience and herself on stream, she can still play video games well enough.
  • Butch Lesbian: Masculine (See Lady Looks Like a Dude) and likes the ladies.
  • Catchphrase: She has a lot of them.
    Bun: I hope this basic beginner's guide makes your gaming experience a little better. So please rate, comment, and subscribe and I hope you have a fantastic day!
    • She also likes to use "Toodles!" when signing off other videos, like her "Do you remember?" series or any of the candid videos she does regarding mostly Kingdom Hearts and the news on its long-awaited third numbered installation.
    • Anything involving the words "nerd" and/or any variation of "babycakes".
    • Quotes from her Twitch notifications pop enough to count, too. For example, "What do you want from me, damn it?!" and "Where's my instant win?"
  • Content Warnings: "Warning! The following video is rated 'M' for 'MmmMMmmm~' If you're young, you shouldn't watch this, so viewer discretion is advised. But hey, I won't tell if you won't."
  • Curse Cut Short: Often combined with a very fast Smash Cut to a Snowy Screen of Death or a test card when transitioning from one point to another.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Goes off on tangents about how attractive certain female characters are.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Her Beginner's Guides are exactly that. A guide for people who are just starting a game.
  • Extraverted Nerd: At school, she really didn't really take "no" for an answer when trying to make friends. She even forces people she knows to become friends.
    Bun: I always make sure friendships work guys. I will force people to click.
  • Gag Lips: One of her more feminine "buns" has large red lips.
    • Gag Boobs: One of her unused "buns" features these for no reason
  • Gainax Ending: To the Persona 4 Golden Marathon. Buns arrived at the true ending tired and under-leveled, so she wound up resetting the PlayStation TV to use the maxed out save of her cohost Kerbecks, and proceeded to crush the final boss, which was fine... until it came to light that Marie wasn't maxed out, and therefore the game ended with no Golden Ending.
  • Jaw Drop: Her one "bun" variant based off of the infamous face Patrick Star makes in the Spongebob Movie is a textbook example of this trope.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: A lot of people who are new often mistake her for a guy.
    • Her voice is more boyish than feminine.
    • Her real name "Tyler" can be both a girl's and a boy's name.
    • Her icon has a lot of stereotypical male attributes.
      • She always has a red tie.
      • Her hair is quite short.
      • With the rare exception, every "bun" variant appears quite ambiguous causing people to assume she's a dude.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Swore to stay off Monster Energy. Tweeted a picture of her desk covered in Monster Energy cans a few days later.
  • No Mouth: The only facial features on her main "bun" has are eyes.
  • Running Gag:
    • She starts her Beginner's Guides with "So (game) came out, and everyone was like...", and then a reaction relevant clip is played.
    • Shoving things up butts tends to be a common trend in Beginner's guides
    • Her video on the first Dark Souls had her showing a picture saying "Dark Souls Is Not Your Friend", with rock music. But then it broke and started playing other music and text.
  • Ship Sinking: She asks Kingdom Hearts fans to just accept that Sora/Riku isn't going to happen.
  • Sound-Effect Bleep: She always bleeps out any swear words she says in her videos to keep them family friendly. She even remade her old videos to censor the swear words.
  • Suddenly Shouting: She does this a fair amount. It's not so surprising when something unexpected or detrimental happens during a game, but when people start donating upwards of $25 or more, she also yells at them to stop donating so much, which inevitably leads to larger donations. See above entries in Bribing Your Way to Victory. These moments also tend to be Actually Pretty Funny as well.
  • Tomboyish Name: "Tyler".
  • Violation of Common Sense: To escape a crazed doctor with giant scissors, she... continuously teabagged to slip by unnoticed.
  • Vanity License Plate: Her parents got her an add-on to her license plate advertising her Youtube videos.
  • The Voice: While her many "buns" are in the majority of her videos, very few have actually seen the real-life Youtuber, until she revealed herself at 10,000k subs. She can now be seen regularly on Twitch.
