Lub Lub, a character used as his avatar.
WhoIsThisGit is a bit of a mix between a game reviewer and Let's Player. He is unique from the rest because he communicates almost entirely via on-screen text. There may be some times where he may talk, but they are mostly reserved for less popular videos, such as the Tails Defense Squad.

Also unlike most Let's Players, he doesn't actually do much let's plays; when he used to be smaller, he did Kirby, Double Dragon, and Fire Emblem walkthroughs (the latter of which is currently going on in an alternate collab channel between him and SolarKnight99, The Awful Tacticians). He mostly does comedic commentary on common tropes he finds in gaming. He has the following series:

    open/close all folders 

    Best/Worst/Weirdest Levels Ever 

    Boss Analysis 
An analysis on, well, bosses. The videos highlight their difficulty, design, fun factor, etc. He occasionally attempts no-damage runs on these as well.

    Tails Abuse Collection 
In this series, he abuses Tails. It has three subseries:
  • Tails Abuse In Court, where Sonic is taken to court to testify against Robotnik who's been accused of killing Tails (complete with Phoenix Wright as Robotnik's defense attorney). Got a 2-part remake titled The Twin-Tailed Turnabout to celebrate this subseries' 10th anniversary.
  • Tails Defense Squad, where he does dramatic readings of comments retaliating against him for making this videos. note 
  • Sonic Abuse, where he abuses Sonic in Super Smash Bros., since Tails isn't a playable character.

    Creepy Bad Endings 
A series on games with Multiple Endings where at least one ending is really, really awful. (It also includes Non Standard Game Over and It's a Wonderful Failure scenarios.) This happens to be his worst video game fear.

    Creepy Time Limits 
A series on Timed Missions that freak him out. If both a time limit and bad ending overlap, it will normally be covered on a CBE video.

    The Weakest Characters in Gaming Ever 
A series focusing on video game protagonists, antagonists, et cetera who are exceedingly easy to kill.

    The Most Powerful Characters in Gaming Ever 
The exact opposite.

    Creepy Moments 

    Other Series 

Before he focused exclusively on video games, he used to do Crap Cartoons, a series of cartoons made in Windows Movie Maker. This, unfortunately, got drowned out by his more popular videos, and is rarely updated anymore. He made 48, including an anniversary. A side character called Lub Lub was introduced there, and is now The Stinger of his videos.

His videos contain examples of the following:

  • Adult Fear: He considers the third Splatterhouse game the scariest in the series because of how it puts Rick's family in significant danger of being killed, which will happen if the player doesn't complete each level in time.
  • Ambiguous Gender:
    • Lub Lub's gender was never truly revealed; it's unknown whether it's male, female, both, or neither.
    • Parodied upon himself, as he will occasionally refer to himself with feminine titles to screw with his audience.
  • Art Evolution: His early videos were made using the same program used for Crap Cartoons — Windows Movie Maker. Recently, he started to use Sony Vegas for his videos.
    • On a minor note, his new avatar looks much better than the one used in Crap Cartoons.
  • Brick Joke:
  • Butt-Monkey: Tails. His role in the Tails Abuse videos is to get all sorts of injury.
  • The Chew Toy: Tails again.
  • Downer Ending: "Creepy Bad Endings" focus on this (with the occasional Bittersweet Ending).
  • Five Stages of Grief: Played for laughs in the "Tails is dead in Sonic 3" theory video, with Git claiming that the first five zones in Sonic 3 are symbolic of these stages.
  • Game-Breaking Bug: "Ghastly Game Glitches" is all about this as well as some Good Bad Bugs.
  • Lampshade Hanging: He has mentioned some of the tropes by name, like Hoist by His Own Petard and Big Bad.
  • Noodle Incident: Boss Analysis #8 (Amazing Boss Deaths) brings us this line: Me and elevators always had our differences in video games (don't ask)
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Considers Ending D of Dead Rising 3 to be this. Nick Ramos is a guy who would still stick his neck out for his friends even if he's a bit of a Cowardly Lion, and having the player turn him into a spineless coward who steals the group's escape plane to escape Los Perdidos by himself is decidedly OOC, which he takes into account. The game thus punishes the player by having Nick's friends show up, berate him for his sudden new-found cowardice, and leave him to die. Including Red.
  • Poe's Law: His “Tails is dead in Sonic 3” theory video is a parody of Game Theory. Going by the comments however, a lot of people seemed to take the whole thing as a serious attempt at a fan theory.
  • Precision F-Strike: He generally doesn't swear very often, and he almost never does it for shock value. When he does, it's usually a sign that he's either very confused, or royally pissed off.
  • Self-Imposed Challenge: Invoked. Some of his one-shot videos tend to be this; for example, his Bidoof Only run of Pokémon Platinum.
    • He prefers to beat bosses without using optional weaknesses.
    • Boss Analysis #9 has him go through all of the bosses in Super Castlevania IV, with all the actions mapped to one button. Amusingly, some of the easiest bosses became the hardest, and vice versa. Not only that, but he also shows off No Damage Runs on certain bosses he was able to achieve them on.
    • Boss Analysis #18 has him play Super Bomberman 2, facing off with the bosses with no powerups in effect, meaning he could only place one bomb at a time, and it has an explosion that is only one block of length. Until the end, where the final boss requires a powerup in order to even hit it.
    • Boss Analysis #20 has him do the same challenge in Super Bomberman 3.
  • Shout-Out: Lub Lub's name is an onomatopoeia for a sound effect in Age of Empires II, which was played when certain units were spawned or selected. In the Lub Lub intros, this sound effect is played when Lub Lub appears.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: Has a bit to say on Castlevania: Dracula X/Vampire's Kiss using the triumphant remix of "Bloodlines" during the credits even when it has endings where Richter didn't save Annette or Maria.
  • The Stinger: All of his videos include a random, nonsensical fact about "Lub Lub", his Author Avatar, at the end, accompanied by the "unit created" sound from Age of Empires II.
  • The Unreveal: As part of April Fools. Assuming he isn't actually Goofy, Kermit the Frog, or KT from Top Banana.
  • That One Level: invoked The point of his "Worst Levels Ever" series.
  • Up to Eleven: He considers Diamond Sands from Blast Corps more "irritating" than the infamous bike levels from Battletoads.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: He demonstrates Frank and Chuck's NPC invincibility in Case West and Dead Rising 3 by attacking them without hesitation.
