"Hello, everyone! This is GoldGleeGamer1 and we're back with a brand new race!"
— GoldGlee

SuperLPHeroes is a collaborate Let's Play channel on youtube that mostly focuses on races through video games of all ages. Each race consists of 3-6 people recording in tandem and each segment is a half hour long with the channel usually updated on both Fridays and Saturdays. The rules are simple: No save states, turbo or slowdown and the winner of the race chooses the next game that the group races through (or, if the person wins his/her own race, the runner-up gets to choose what's next). If the group doesn't have any race footage ready for the channel, they'll upload a stand-in video with group commentary over a single-player run of a different game.

    Lost Races 


The races provide examples of:

  • 100% Completion: Averted for Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and the Donkey Kong Country trilogy. It was optional for Mega Man X and Super Metroid (not that a whole lot of people were willing to go for it in the latter).
    • Mercifully averted for the racers in Banjo-Tooie as in-game cheats were allowed and encouraged, cutting the race down to taking less than 2 hours instead of 20.
  • The Ace: Everyone specializes in a particular genre.
    • Brightwolfz is definitely the one for the Donkey Kong Country trilogy as he took the hat trick by winning all three of those.
    • CaptainTurbo for Sonic titles.
    • Gold for Super Mario titles.
    • Dyne for a good mix of 8 and 16-bit titles, having grown up with a huge collection of them.
    • Midi for racing games.
    • Sinisterkun for Classic Mega Man
  • Actually Pretty Good: In-Universe this is the kind of opinion Dyne hopes the other racers have about the games he picks. So far it's worked with Hook.

  • Alice Allusion:
    • Played with in that three different Alices are discussed within a minute: the Alices from The Honeymooners, The Brady Bunch and Alice Margatroid.

  • All Anime Is Naughty Tentacles: Discussed with the fact that the first boss in Final Fantasy IV after Rydia joins the party is a tentacle monster.

    • The dark theory as to why Donkey Kong wears a tie.
    • Dyne theorized that Kazooie is really saying "Strega!" when separating from Banjo in Banjo-Tooie.
  • Anachronic Order: In general, there are sometimes instances where the order the races are recorded in do not match the order the races are uploaded in.
    • The team mentions recording a race of Super Castlevania IV during Part 6 of Adventure Island II and reference it even though it hadn't been uploaded yet.
    • Streets of Rage 2 was recorded before Felix the Cat and Metroid: Zero Mission, but two latter were uploaded first due to Gold having all of the racers' footage of them before having everyone's from SoR2. As of the latest update, it is slated to go up after Mario Kart 64.
    • As of Chrono Trigger, the group had recorded footage for F-Zero X and Metroid, but they weren't ready for upload.
  • Analogy Backfire: Dyne compares the close race between Sinisterkun and CaptainTurbo in Super Castlevania IV to how close he and Gold were during Yoshi's Island and Gold chimes in with, "But Sinisterkun wasn't even in Yoshi's Island."
  • Are We There Yet?:
    • People asking the one in first place if they've beaten the game yet in The Lion King and Adventure Island II just so the pain would end.
    • Also happens a lot when nearing the end of a part in case the group decides to either extend the video or go another part.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In-universe, done unintentionally. During the Mushroom Cup of Super Mario Kart Dyne relates a story of how he and a CPU racer once got the exact same time on Mario Circuit 2. Later, in Flower Cup, he and Gold get the exact same time in Ghost Valley 2.
    • A small exscript from the Magic Sword Race: Turbo; Don't forget I'll be owed about 15 seconds since I'm have to stop to record the cal. Sinisterkun; It won't matter. It matters, they both beat the final boss within seconds of each other.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Gold would have solidified 2nd place in The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle if he had not insisted in extending the race for one more part, especially as he already had a clear enough lead from 3rd at the end of Part 3.

  • I Lied:

    • Gold getting called out on explaining himself over his tendency to fall into Don't Explain the Joke and getting called out on that on this wiki during Mega Man X4.

    • Dyne has a lot of fun with this when breaking out his Kefka and Simon Belmont voices.

  • Late to the Party: Green Thorne joins the group and plays along during the second half of Adventure Island II even though he didn't join the actual race.

  • Mister Exposition: Gold for his tendency to spend a lot of time explaining various race mechanics or rules.
  • Mondegreen: In-Universe.
    • When Dyne finishes a Yoshi's Island level and says he's exiting, it sounds like a bad pun of "Egg-xiting." No one catches it.

    • Gold mishears "anti-dandruff shampoo" as "anti-gender shampoo" during Castlevania IV.
    • Gold thinking the "Omochau edition" of Sonic 2 was the "Obi Quigon Jin edition."
      • Wherein Dyne thought he said, "OB-GYN edition."
    • Talking about Zeromus from Final Fantasy IV sounds like "Zero Mist" during Mario RPG.
  • Most Annoying Sound:

  • My Name Is *Belch*: A well-timed burp answers the question of when the king of World 6 asks for Mario's name during the group commentary of Super Mario Bros. 3.
  • Name's the Same: In-Universe discussion how Squishy the squid from Kirby's Dream Land 2 came before Squishy from Finding Nemo.
  • Never Live It Down:
    • In-universe, it will be a long time before GoldGlee is forgiven for The Lion King.
    • Though the rage at that has been redirected towards Sinisterkun for Adventure Island II, mostly because it took 9 parts compared to Castlevania III. Turbo even later threatens to fire him from the group during Alex Kidd if he thinks of choosing another Adventure Island.
    • Averted with CaptainTurbo choosing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, again because it was less than half as long.

  • Noob Bridge:
    • The Trope Namer catches at least one of the racers during the lost Super Metroid race.
    • Happens to Lady Lexis in Super Metroid as she immediately forgets to manually advance the prologue text and again when she doesn't realize that doors need to be shot to be opened.
      • The funny thing, however, is the actual bridge does not trap her.
    • Sinisterkun thinks he's in the Trope Namer room in Part 3 of the second Super Metroid race, but that only led to confusion.
      • It's actually inverted for him in Part 4 when he tries to diagonally shine spark (a move that most first-time players have no clue about) across a chasm when he simply needed to do a regular speed boost-assisted running jump.
  • Not So Stoic:
    • In-universe, Lady Lexis learns this about Dyne near the end of Part 2 of Castlevania III when he acts in a manner that had been done in previous races but in a way that she hadn't yet seen since joining the group.

  • One Dialogue, Two Conversations: Happens in Part 3 of Sonic 2 when Dyne announces his reaching the boss of Wing Fortress Zone and Sinister immediately says, "You gotta be kidding me!" but in response to something on his own screen instead. And it gets reversed not two minutes later in the same video.
  • Once an Episode: Each Castlevania race can be expected to have a reference to, "Die, monster! You don't belong in this world!"
  • Only Sane Man:
    • CaptainTurbo is the most prone to remaining calm even when frustrated.
    • On another scale it takes a lot to get Gold frustrated.

    • Gold has the tendency to compare easy bosses to Bear Hugger from Super Punch-Out.
    • Dyne quoting Dennis Nedry's "Ah, ah, ah! You didn't say the magic word," whenever Sonic does his finger wave in Sonic 3. Acknowledged as an Overly Long Gag by the end.
