(sketch from like 2015. i'll make a better sketch soon.)

welp, about time i patch up this page, i guess.

hello there. you can call me anza or squid. i got into fiction since I was little, spending at least 1/6 of my childhood watching cartoons. i don't know how i got into TV Tropes; maybe from a stray xkcd comic i visited (but really, who even remembers how they got in here?).

the "sb" in my handle name stands for the very first work of fiction i watched and enjoyed. unfortunately the wiki markup doesn't distinguish underscores (therefore linking Tropers.{{anza_sb}} to the nonexistent Tropers.AnzaSb), but since I can't be bothered with making a new account, i usually just pothole the link myself (using the page link: if you came from that link, hi!

i have deviantART, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. feel free to look around and maybe like and follow. i'm also on Discord; do PM me if you want my ID.

additional notes:

  • i might be the one who broke the Wiki Word for Dot Hack GU (reverting it back from .hack//G.U. to Dot Hack GU). i'm sorry.
  • i don't visit TV Tropes as often as i used to, but when i do you can expect to find me over at Image Pickin'. sorry, Forum Games.

note that i haven't fixed the next sections yet. please refrain from scrolling down until it's fixed. it's really bad to read, trust me.

Tropes about me:

  • all lowercase letters: i talk like this often. think of me as channeling sans.
  • Apologises a Lot: Yeah, I do this often, both in here and in real life. Sorry.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Yep. I'm a fiction nerd as well as a science/math nerd, and I'm from Asia.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Conspiracy Theorists. I really, really, really hate these people. They're dumb, ignorant, and you can never convince them that they're wrong because of how smug and arrogant they are.
    • Bigotry, racism and any other forms of discrimination. This goes both ways; I really hate Trump's ban on Muslims and the Indonesian Muslim radicals protesting that one Christian governor for taking one phrase from the Quran in a slightly different way. I just hate it when people act like a dick to others just because of petty reasons like that.note 
  • Big Eater: I tend to eat a lot, yet I don't seem to gain much weight. My family has sometimes commented on this, wondering where the heck did all the food go.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: I am good in maths and science, and I also draw (quite good, I guess...? It's up to interpretation). But instead of improving my skills, I waste my time in this site.
  • Covert Pervert: A little. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • East Indies: I hail from here!
  • Everythings Squishier With Cephalopods: My favorite animal is the octopus, mostly because they are actually quite capable of taking over human society if not for the fact that they can't breathe on land. I also like other cephalopods such as squids and the nautilus.
  • Foreign Queasine: Durians. Although it's not foreign where I live, and nearly everyone else there enjoys it, I don't like it at all.
  • Good with Numbers: Math is one of my stronger subjects.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Although I'm fine with people swearing, I rarely swear myself, except for certain situations such as quoting people (since I don't change them) or roleplaying characters who are known to swear often (such as Karkat or Gamzee). Expect this trope to be somewhat downplayed when I'm on Discord, though.
  • Guilt Complex: Related to Apologises a Lot above, and Innocently Insensitive directly below, and possibly my most prominent weakness. I tend to blame myself often for any bad thing that happens to me or someone else. I also tend to berate myself a lot for the mistakes I've done in the past, and the things that I should have done in the past... Yeah, you get the idea.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Sometimes I post on a thread, only to later realize that what I've posted is actually a bit dickish (or it's not actually dickish, but I feel that it's dickish). If you feel like I'm being a dick in the forums, feel free to leave me a PM so I can apologize properly and/or smack myself in the face.
  • Milestone Celebration: I sometimes do this in Forum Games threads (like writing "SIX THOUSAND!" in the 6000th post of this thread or writing "900th post!" in small writing in this thread).
  • Myers Briggs: INTP, according to a recent test I took.
  • Nerd Glasses: I wear a pair of these.
  • No Social Skills: Yeah, I find it hard to talk to people.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: My real name, which is actually a portmanteau of my parents' names.
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: Why else do you think I spend way too much time here? But seriously though, even in here I tend to be pretty lazy. :P
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Cheese (although I only know a few kinds). I also like noodles and pasta.
  • Verbal Tic: "But seriously..." / "Seriously, though..." / "But seriously, though..."

Other things about me:

  • My gender is dude.
  • My birthday is on October 1.
  • My timezone is UTC+7.
  • I mostly hang out at Forum Games. I also sometimes talk with the good guys at Image Pickin.
  • I am a terrible role-player. note 
  • If I were to describe myself in 3 fictional characters, I'd go with Alphys, Sans, and SpongeBob. Yes, I'm aware that I used two Undertale characters at once. Yes, I'm also aware that their initials spell "SAS". I don't have much sass myself, but hey.

And now, for some miscellaneous stuff...

    The Star Systems 
A little in-joke spawning off from this thread. So since Star Bee and Star Android Jaguar both have "Star" in their names, I theorized that they are leaders of a group called The Star Systems, a group responsible for the launch of every trope in the Stellar Index and every media with "Star" in their titles. Oh, and they are also a galactic federation of some sort, with their own military and whatnot. The members include any characters with Stellar Names (such as Star Butterfly, Patrick Star, Jonathan Joestar, Betelgeuse Romanee-Conti, etc.), and fellow tropers in This Very Wiki, with their own Stellar Codenames. These are the codenames for the various tropers in this site (sorted by the codenames)... and then some.

    Party Octopus and Friends 
Tropes for my characters, Party Octopus (and his friends). I'll either add more of this later, or I'll move this section to the Darth Wiki page. As for now, I'll just keep it here. This section may and will change over time, with every character idea I add or remove.

Tropes applying to them in general:

Party Octopus

A happy-go-lucky octopus who loves to PARTY!!!

  • Adorkable: Beneath his "hype-man" persona, he's actually a pretty dorky guy.
  • Bi the Way: He's been hitting on sea creatures of both genders.
  • Black Sheep: He is a happy fun ordinary octopus in a family of terrifying sea monsters. The family visits can get awkward sometimes.
  • Combat Tentacles: He can stretch his tentacles to catapult himself.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Everyone in the sea calls him Party Octopus or Party.
  • Funny Octopus: Yep.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Subverted, since "Party Octopus" might not be his real name.
  • Life of the Party: Of course! Besides attending parties a lot (and often shining at them), he also holds parties at his home (and at Humboldt's home, much to his chagrin). He's not called "Party Octopus" for nothing, after all.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a small party hat.
  • Odd Friendship: He's best friends with Humboldt, despite the two having contrasting personalities.
  • Pungeon Master: Downplayed; he sometimes drop a pun or two for kicks, but he sure loves a good pun.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Humboldt's Blue; he's loud, extraverted, and likes to go out to hang with people.

Humboldt Squid

A humboldt squid and Party's best friend (and sometimes rival).


A really loud bottlenose dolphin, possibly even louder than Party.

  • The Alcoholic: She gets drunk off her blowhole a lot.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: She's often seen with a glass bottle stuck on her snout, making her a literal bottle-nose dolphin.
  • Drunk on Milk: That bottle stuck on her snout is actually a bottle of cream soda.
  • Friendly, Playful Dolphin: Despite her drunk tendencies, she's actually a pretty nice guy.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Sometimes she and Party would engage in drinking contests. Let's just say it doesn't end well for either of the two.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: A hard drinking dolphin who often goes to Party's, um... parties.
  • Retcon: I changed her gender from male to female. Some Word of God explanation: When I first wrote the character off of a sketch I drew, I make the gender male. I later changed it to female because I just realized that I really lack major female characters here. I'm sorry. I'll probably add more female characters soon.

Thaum and Sepia

A mysterious master of mischief and disguise, and his quiet assistant.


A bratty and punkish Japanese flying squid.


A giant Pacific octopus who loves to prank people.

Party's family (the Thalassa family)

The Thalassa family is a multi-generational family of sea monsters residing in the deepest unexplored parts of the ocean. The current generation consists of Grandpa Cthulhu, Grandma Levi, Aunt Lia, Uncle Hydra and Mr. Kraken. Oh, and Party.

  • Kraken and Leviathan: Mr. Kraken and Levi, whom are Party's dad and grandma, respectively.
  • Missing Mom: Party's mom, also Mr. Kraken's wife, is nowhere to be found for unknown reasons.
  • Sea Monster: A whole family of 'em!
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Everyone has some sort of "long body part" theme going on within them, whether it's tentacles or long necks. Any sort of innuendo arising from the previous sentence is completely accidental.
  • Unscaled Merfolk: Aunt Lia is an octopus mermaid.

    The Elements Playlist 
I had this idea quite some time ago, back when I was in my final year of high school. So I'm a chemistry nerd (among other things nerd), and I noticed that there are quite a lot of songs with the names of elements in their titles. And so I had an idea to find a song for all 118 elements of the Periodic Table. It's a really long journey, and some elements I still haven't found the perfect song for. Below is the playlist, sorted by atomic number order, in the format of [Artist - Song Title]. I decided to put it here, because... I want to share my nerdness with all of you guys, I guess. :P

There are some rules to this playlist, namely:

  1. The element should be in the song title, not the artist's name. Therefore, songs by Nickelback, for example, don't count unless they have a song with an element title.
  2. Each element only has one song. This is because some elements, like Gold and Silver, have way too many songs with their names in the title.
  3. Only one song from each artist (i.e. no two songs by the same artist).

Be warned that some of the songs in here are really obscure, and some might not be your kind of song to listen to. Oh, if you have a song suggestion, please let me know!note
