Tropes associated with Sam Max

  • The Artifact: His very username has become this; he barely even thinks about Sam & Max: Freelance Police anymore, but he came up with the username while he was big into it. For what it's worth, without revealing anything, he uses a different, more timeless username in other places. He won't reveal what it is.
  • The Atoner: If he does something particularly bad, he must do what he can to make up for it, even if it kills him!
  • Author's Saving Throw: If he feels there is an issue with his statements, he will at least try to fix it.
  • Berserk Button: Sexist and racist people. He views them as assholes at best, especially when it's a time when they should know better.
    • Betrayal. If you betrayed him...why? He trusted you...
    • Advertisement:
    • Being a new user on a forum and being accused of being a ban-dodgeer right out the gate. Especially if he tells the mods...and their response is to do nothing; not even a "we can't/won't do it" response. Without them, he has literally no way to prove he isn't ban-dodging, so it's really infuriating.
    • People who blame others for the consequences of their own actions don't get any sympathy from him.
    • It seems seeing Amitie suffering Character Derailment or something else that doesn't get her character has become one. Even if it's done as a joke, he isn't laughing. Still best thing to do is to end it here; probably the source of mockery as it is.
    • People who use their autism as an excuse for horrible actions really make him mad, considering he's autistic himself, and feels it's no excuse to be a jerk.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: At times.
  • Doing It for the Art: It goes without saying that any piece of fanwork is this by default; he can't legally make money off it, so he does it for his own pleasure.
  • False Friend: He's had a few. Very rarely do we go back on good terms after The Reveal, and even then, there's no guarantee that they've actually learned their lesson.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: He doesn't usually do this, at least not at first; they have either do something particularly awful and/or refuse to learn even after they've been given a chance at redemption. Either way, once he decides he can no longer give them any more chances, he slams the door on them, feeling he gave them enough opportunities to do a Heel–Face Turn, only for them to keep blowing it.
  • Hypocrite: You'll see it on some discussions on this wiki.
  • Informed Flaw: Unless you met this guy in person, at least some of these tropes would appear as such.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: He's prone to this at times. Hope he won't have to rely on bootlegs...he'd rather avoid bootlegs if at all possible. Otherwise...damn you distributors/lawyers/whoever is to blame!
  • Loony Fan: May not appear as such on the interweb most of the time, but in Real Life...depending on the work in question, that could be putting it lighly. He's been mellowing out over the years, but shades of it are still there.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Gotta work to pay the bills, after all. Hell, lately, it's been his only remaining motivation for staying at his workplace; if not for that, he'd have left by now.
  • Motor Mouth: Can be this when talking about a Video Game, a Film, a Comic Book, a piece of Literature, or even a Fan Fiction. At least, in Real Life.
  • Old Shame: Most of his fanfiction. He is so ashamed, he prefers not to speak of them, and he is very grateful that he wasn't dumb enough to post them on the internet. They are happily lost in the midst of time!
    • He also typed in a Dethroning Moment of Suck for WarioWare Touched! It was poorly thought out headcanon speaking in a time when he hadn't gotten a sufficient understanding of actual canon, and he feels that's not good enough to warrant a DMOS. It was removed as a result.
    • Even some entries on this page have become this; let's just say he's become a bit more sympathetic or the Fan Dumb and Hate Dumb. Sure, what they do is still wrong, but he now has firsthand experience as part of those. As a result, those ignorant parts of the Pet-Peeve Trope entry are gone.
    • Continuing this, some older entries reeked of elitism, and that was wrong of him. Some may persist, and if so, he will remove them upon noticing them. He just needed to learn to let people have fun.
  • Out of Order: He's Invoked this from time to time. It boils down to him playing the sequels before starting the original.
  • Periphery Demographic: As time goes on, it's becoming rarer and rarer that he's even part of the target audience for a series. At most, he was part of the target audience when he first got into it. It's because a lot of the things actually made for his demographic don't appeal to him. That's not to say such works lack merit; it's just not for him, is all.
  • The Red Stapler: If a character he likes doesn't have a plush...he may commission one special, though he's gotta keep his finances in mind.
  • Self-Deprecation: He likes to do this a lot, to ensure he doesn't have an enormous ego.
  • Soapbox Sadie: He doesn't like seeing this, but admits that he's fallen into that trap more than once. He hopes it never, ever happens again, but he can't say for sure.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: He may not use it, but he finds it funny.
  • Third-Person Person: This article only, though it slips up from time to time.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Has been through waaaaaaay too much betrayal. And it wound up getting worse, and then better, and then worse again. It's a miracle he still has any sanity left!
