Lets Play / Wii Rike to Pray

Go To
Wii Like To Play, formerly known as Wii Rike to Pray, is a collaborative Let's Play group who focus mainly on 4-player games. Their crew has consisted of 5 members in all: Chris, Tyler, Tyson, Jansen, and Spencer.

Each of them also has their own channel.

Some of the games that they have played are:

Their videos provide examples of:

  • Adorkable: Spencer (also the Butt-Monkey) most of the time.
  • The Ace: Tyson. He's noted to be generally the one winning in competitive games.
  • Berserk Button: The guys, particularly Tyson, do not like the troll levels uploaded in Super Mario Maker.
  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Spencer. How many times has he lost in competitions (Especially Mario Party) due to bad luck? Granted, some of those losses come from him making bad decisions oftentimes.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Oooh, baby!"
    • "Dang it!"
    • "Get wrecked, fools!"
    • "That's really cool".
    • "Please!"
    • "You activated my trap card!"
    • "Fudge!"
    • "Make things spicy!"
  • Color-Coded Characters: Usually, Chris is red, Tyler is blue, Tyson is yellow, and Spencer is green. Demonstrated when they colored their Oddsocks with stickers to differentiate them.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: In Castle Crashers, Tyler puts all but two upgrade points in Agility. He ends up dying the most due to putting only one point in defense.
  • Crossover: When they did episodes of Wii Party U with AttackingTucans.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Tyson and Spencer mostly, but all the guys have their moments.
  • Epic Fail: So many that it needs its own page.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: The guys continue to mention that if Spencer wants to win, he has to earn it.
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: Tyson and Spencer (Fighters), Chris (Mage), and Tyler (Thief) respectively in Castle Crashers.
  • Four-Man Band: The whole channel. Chris, Tyler, Tyson and Spencer. (Jansen)
  • Friendly Rivalry: Basically Smashin' Sundays, Mario Kart and Party in anyway, and some platforming games for the highest style points, finishing first or doing better.
  • Genre Blindness: Spencer often makes some... less-than-ideal choices in certain games (Such as Mario Party and Mario & Sonic) that end up biting him in the ass later.
  • The Bus Came Back: Jansen returns for Mario Party 10 as Bowser for Bowser Party, and it's him versus the current crew.
  • In-Series Nickname:
    • You would be surprised at how little you hear the names Chris, Tyler, Tyson and Spencer in an episode (except maybe Chris). More often than not, it's C, T, Sibes (short for Siber170, Tyson's solo channel), and Spence. And Jerns. On a few occasions, Spenceronipepperonifettuccine.
    • They have some for the Mario characters, like Merty, Donks, Rosie, Todd, B-Junes, and Bow-Wow.
  • Intentional Engrish for Funny: The called themselves Wii Rike To Pray after an infamous Nintendo Wii commercial for this very reason. According to Chris they matured, they realized that if it's not the people who does it unintentionaly who parodies themselves by doing it intentionally, but people who doesn't speak like that unintentionally does it come off as racist (like making fun of the stuttering kid by stuttering yourself even if you don't speak like that it's not really funny, but if she/he does it over the top to parody himself it can be if he/she allows it to be, sure there are some expections). Some people even thought they were a religious cult of some kind due to the Pray part. After a while they got more and more ashamed of presenting themselves on conventions saying it lower and lower, at some times even at refusing to say it out loud and wrote it down instead, that they changed it to Wii Like To Play. They are okay with people shortening it WRTP though, as it's easier to say.
  • Last-Second Word Swap:
    • During Mario Party 2, Tyson says "Karma's... one of those words. She's a beautiful lady".
    • Their infamous "Fudge!". Sometimes one can hear that it was recorded later and put on the recording because it's said in a more cheerful tone than the rest.
  • Oh, Crap!: Many, many throughout their playthroughs, particularly in the Failtage for Super Mario 3D World. Spencer has one during their playthrough of Super Mario 64, after he realizes he needs to fetch a 100-coin star with the cannon because he made it appear in the air without a wing cap.
  • Rated M for Manly: Not duck-jumping in Super Mario Maker apparently, acoroding to Tyson.
  • Running Gag: In Mario Party minigames, Chris, Tyler and Tyson sometimes tie for first; followed Spencer gets last. Why this happens, no one knows.
  • Self-Imposed Challenge: In any Mario game where you have to jump on the flagpole at the end of the level, they always try to get all four of them at the top every time. Usually, results are mixed.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In the finale of Mario Party 5 Spence yells Free-For-All in a Ricola style yell.
    • In one 2Bros1Up episode of Super Mario 64 does Chris hold the small ice "maze" calling for Jack to save him.
  • Spin-Off:
    • Koopa Couple, a channel focusing on Tyson and Cassie (his fiancée.)
    • 2Bros1Up, with only C and T. Contains calling each other 'brother' and lots of laughing.
  • Stone Wall: Spencer puts most of his upgrade points in Defense in Castle Crashers.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of SAHMAAASHING SUNDAAAAAAYS!
  • Super Reflexes: Despite being the resident Butt-Monkey, Spencer has shown remarkable reflexes from time to time, especially when it comes to FPS games. One of his better moments shows him beating Kremling Kosh in Donkey Kong 64 within 33 seconds. The minigame required him to hit 28 Kremlings in 60 seconds. That's 0.85 Kremlings hit per second.
  • That One Level: invoked Switchboard Falls, World 3-7 of Super Mario 3D World. The guys started off with 30 lives between them. They finish it with just 4 lives remaining.
  • Waggle: invoked A large portion of their Wii Sports Resort Let's Play is them struggling with the motion controls.

How well does it match the trope?
