I'm a fairly recent troper, and while I haven't done much, I've dabbled in a few reviews. It is my personal quest to prove tropes are real, and shall make myself as Troperiffic as possible.

Personal Tropes

  • A Darker Me: Inverted, I'm nicer on the internet then I am in real life.
  • Aloof Big Brother: Two, which really pisses me off since one was like a father to me for the longest time.
  • Ambiguously Gay: I like musicals, am very close with my exclusively male friends, cook, and I haven't exactly declared my sexuality to the world.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ambiguously Jewish: I myself don't know if I'm jewish or not, my jewish friends say yes, my non jewish friends say no.
  • Badass Bookworm: I can hold my own against football players in hand to hand, and most people just see me as that one nerdy kid.
  • Berserk Button: People who don't have reasons for their actions, jackass hypocrites basically. And if you touch my friends, you've opened up a can of whupass, cause I'll fight even dirtier then normal.
    • I also hate bigotry of any variety.
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: My hair is too dark for Hair of Gold.
  • Blue Eyes: Adding to my American Phenotype Stereotype.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: I refer to myself as The Dragon, of course I'm one of these.
  • Celibate Hero: A fact that I'm fine with, seriously.
  • Chaotic Neutral: While I do have a carefully crafted code of honor, I don't expect others to hold to my code, and if societies conventions get in my way, you are damn sure what I'm going to do.
  • Chef of Iron: And Team Chef, cause I'm the only one who can.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: I leer, nothing more.
  • Advertisement:
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: I have had some really weird conversations, and occasionally talk in streams of consciousness.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: I fucking swear a fucking lot some of the fucking time, anybody have a fucking problem with that? Well if you do, go fucking fuck yourself...fucker. I only do it near my fucking friends though, so don't get fucking upset.
  • Cool Shades: That are actually useful, they clip onto my normal glasses.
  • The Combat Pragmatist: Honor in combat? What's the point.
  • Consummate Liar: I can go on long diatribes on obviously made up facts, must be my reputation for knowing factoids. "You didn't know the Czar supported the Chinese against their war with the British? That's why they wouldn't offer them sanctuary after the revolution." I eventually tell them I'm lying, and then a week later I do it again and they believe me again.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Background: Guy who's been fucking with me for an entire year. Situation: Guy takes something from me. End Result: Guy laid out on his ass with a bloody nose after one punch from me.
    • I've also flipped a guy over completely by instinct I literally have no idea what I did, but the guy (Non seriously) grabbed me from behind, I twisted and the guy ended up in front of me knocked over.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Well I do frequent this site.
  • Defector from Decadence: Except I believe 99.99999% of humanity is unable to meet my standards. I don't hate them, I just can't respect them.
  • The Dragon: The more physical and less charismatic best bud to the man that brought us together.
  • Dubbing versus Subbing: I fall on the dubs side, but I don't really care.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Giving me a really good
  • Evil Laugh: That I engage in at random moments.
  • Finishing Move: A sleeper hold, I do not however call my atttack, maybe I should start?
  • Five Bad Band: It's odd how my friends fall into this.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: One humorous and accidental case of this, a ditzy male classmate of mine once said I look like my mother, later, he said my mom's attractive. I tried explaining that if A=B and B=C then A=C, he didn't get it. My friends and I joke that he was just trying to tell me something.
    • Another guy, called Eric Bai said he has a gigantic man crush on me.
  • Fragile Speedster: My endurance isn't much, but in terms of speed I can kick most peoples asses.
  • The Hedonist: I love life! So why not enjoy it?
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks!: Sadly true for me, I mock things and people laugh, I mock myself and people, and me, laugh, but if I mock them, well, suddenly its not funny anymore.
  • Ho Yay: Yeah...wresting sans shirt is a good way to get this, and there is a guy I have more homoerotic encounters with!
  • Honor Before Reason: I have an multiple authority problems and issues with stepping down. I live by my code, and when I finally wise up enough to back off, I'm already in to deep.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: My "jokes" are just incredibly cruel and acerbic, I do nice things...occasionally. Oh, I'm generally kind to my friends.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Encyclopedia Dramatica was after this line about Bleach
    "His only motivation is 'protecting his friends' or 'being the strongest.' After all, who the fuck can't identify with that? Oh right, this is ED."
  • Kichiku Megane: Cold, glasses wearing, hot? Two to three out of three isn't bad.
  • Large Ham: Only in class, few people enjoy school, and hamming it up is really fun.
  • Lean and Mean: I'm not skeletal in my slimness, but I do have a noticeable six-pack.
  • Meaningful Name: Averted completely, my real name Daniel, which means God is my judge, I don't believe in an intelligent human divinity, and even if there was one I definitely wouldn't care about being judged by one.
  • Morality Pet: I actually have somebody who asked me to me nicer to three people and I did it, of course she believe that I have a soft chewy center, huh, I guess Her Mind Made It Real.
  • Nietzsche Wannabe: I appear to be one, but I'd like to think of my self as an Übermensch.
  • Not a Morning Person
  • No Sense of Personal Space: I greet people with a clap on the shoulder and do the "another persons head as an armrest shtick."
  • One Head Taller: Then 97% of the people I know. Just adds to the Ho Yay.
  • Only Sane Man: I'm the guy that keeps our circle from doing something really stupid.
  • Pitbull Dates Puppy: I have, on occasion, fallen for people who are bright, personable and actually like most people.
  • The Philosopher: I'm a fan of Voltaire (The one from the 1800s), and Nietzsche (Well some of his work), and love yakking about them.
  • Pride: My vice, well that and wrath.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: Hell to the yeah.
  • Pungeon Master: A chief component of my bad jokes.
    • "I'm going to assume something, never mind what they say about donkey and sheep."
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Not a practical strategy, though it can work if someone isn't being too careful. I still try it.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: They totally do.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue, mostly, though I have a succulent red exterior, I usually try to think ahead and talk our way out of trouble, my Big Bad friend is cool and relaxed, but he's chaotic to the core and lack foresight.
  • The Rival: A physical one with our Brute, doesn't hamper our friendship at all.
  • Rule-Abiding Rebel: A huge Pet-Peeve Trope with me. Wearing a leather jacket and playing a guitar does not a rebel make. True rebels don's play chess against the Man, cause you're still playing by the rules set up by the Man. Real rebellion would be to stop playing chess and pull out a deck of cards. (Could I have tortured that metaphor anymore?)
  • Self-Deprecation: Part of my philosophy on mocking everything, one day I hope people will stop taking words so seriously and just laugh at jokes, not get bothered by them.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Only in appearance, I'm tall and fair, my brother is shorter and dark. In personality we're almost identical, a fact that pisses us off to no end.
  • Slasher Smile: I get one whenever I get into a fight.
  • Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: I appear to be on the cynical end, but I'm actually an idealist.
  • Spirited Competitor: Somewhere between this and Blood Knight in matters relating to both debate and sparring.
  • Suplex Finisher: It hurts like a sumbitch, whether I'm taking one or delivering one.
  • Take Over the World: Not cost effective enough, owning the world would be a pain in the ass.
  • Team Dad: It really sucks to be the responsible one too, but somebody has to keep their asses from getting into too much trouble.
  • Ted Baxter: And it makes me cry when my constant claims about how awesome I am get proven right by the absolute fail of my peers.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: I love Gurren Lagann, and my speeches contain the burning flame of youth.
  • Troubled, but Cute: It really doesn't work, maybe if I get in more trouble, or get cuter.
  • The Quiet One: Only around people who piss me off. I evolved this to avoid getting into pointless fights.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: I'm a mans man! I can't compliment my friends.
  • Younger Than They Look: I can pass for someone two or three years older.
  • Warrior Poet
  • Watsonian vs. Doylist: Watsonian.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Got over it eventually.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Apparently I possess a pair, it gets odd when people twice my age are pointing them out. People who hate me think my eyes are attractive.
  • Wicked Cultured: Especially in comparison to my Nakama, I've been to many more museums, and seen a lot more symphonies.
  • Would Hit a Girl: I am not going to take women lightly, they can kick ass! And it seems a mite hypocritical to not hit somebody due to something as trivial as gender.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Suplexes, Ankle Locks, and more, though I try to stick with the moves that actually work.

Favorite Characters:

  • Angel: Gunn, totally woobieriffic in my opinion.
  • Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Anya, for her sheer hilarity.
  • Cowboy Bebop: Ed, she's just
  • The Dresden Files: Toot-Toot, you can see why on the character sheet, no Entry Pimp by me, of course not, that would be wrong.
  • Chuck: Casey, come on! Its Adam Baldwin being Adam Baldwin.
  • Outlaw Star: Aisha, I guess I like girls with spunk.
  • One Piece: Zoro, I love the entire show, but he's one of the consistently cool protagonists and Three Fucking Swords.
  • A Song Of Ice And Fire: Arya, she has the best plots, is one of the most interesting, and is the biggest Badass in the series, way cooler then fucking Sandor.
  • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: Kamina, he deserves all the praise he gets.
  • TNA: A.J. Styles, probably my favorite wrestler alive.
  • Yu Yu Hakusho: Hiei, I love Chuck Huber, and he's one of the coolest characters I've ever scene.
  • WWE: John Morrison, don't judge me, he's awesome.
  • Busou Renkin: Kazuki Muto is one of the most likable protagonists, ever.
  • Black Lagoon: Eda, she's like Revy (who I like a lot), but more hilarious and a lighter easier to deal with cause she's not as evil.
  • Naruto: Yeah I watched it, and his name is Neji, why? He's got an interesting fighting style, an especially woobieriffic back story, and generally acts much more like a protagonist then Captain Bland, the titular character and his ex rival Mr. I-Used-To-Be-Interesting. (Though Kiba is a close second)
  • Law And Order SVU: Dr. George Huang, for being the only sane dude around, though it is close between him, Fin and Munch.
  • Warhammer 40 K: The Orks, for the sheer hilarity of their actions.
  • Warhammer Fantasy: The Bretons, they're really fun to play, I like the fluff a lot, and they're often involved in the funnier parts of the world.
  • Suzumiya Haruhi: Though I'm not a big fan of the show, I do like Yuki, just because she's a gigantic badass.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist: Al, he's so sweet and kind and nice and adorable and also really, really cool.
  • Baccano: Jacuzzi, cause he's such a good, honest guy, and the bravest character I've ever heard of.
  • Rin Daughters Of Mnemosyne: Kouki, Sniff he's a nice guy, a nice dad, and he has self-control to boot, not to mention his Heroic Sacrifice by Emergency Transformation.
  • Full Metal Panic: Kurz Weber, it's nice to have a character free of angst and self doubt.
  • Samurai Champloo: Mugen, by a bit, it's probably the voice, and the total devotion to the present.
  • Crown Of Stars: Alain, the only protagonist in the series I didn't want to punch in the face, cause he's an actual hero instead of a bland, boring, bitch.
  • Bleach: Ishida, he's got an awesome power set, an intriguing personality, a great fashion sense and gets no screen time.
  • Ouran High School Host Club: Mori had that coolness that the rest lacked, kicked ass without being obnoxious, had some funny moments, was underused and IMAO was the best looking one of the group.
  • Avatar The Last Airbender: Toph, biggest badass ever, and she was somewhat woobish too.
