No, he his not too scared.
Gained fame with a pop culture theory video series called Éruption Cérébrale ("Cerebral Eruption", or just another way to say "Mind Blown").
In his main show, Le Tropeur de l'Extrême, he explains various tropes to the audience, often focusing on one trope or type of trope per episode. As the show progresses, he is joined by Le Snarkeur, whose only goal is to snark at every thing, to the annoyance of Le Tropeur. After episode 15, a storyline starts to develop, making good use of the tropes seen so far, while still exploring new ones.
The first season is 26 episodes long (if you count Episode 0, where the concept of tropes is explained), and it was followed by a year long hiatus. Season 2 began airing on the 28th September 2017, and is set to contain 10 episodes.
Being a show about tropes, expect a lot of them to actually be name-dropped In-Universe.
And yes, he created this very page.
Le Tropeur in general:
- Author Appeal: Expect at least one Doctor Who reference per video.
- Berserk Button: Puns on his name will not be tolerated.
- Memetic Mutation: The aforementioned beard has become something of a private joke amongst the channel's subscribers.
- Running Gag: Him being in love with Princess Zelda comes up once in a while.
Le Tropeur de l'Extrême contains examples of:
- Acting for Two: Le Tropeur, Le Snarkeur and Mr.Vasdyan are all played by the same actor.
- Big Bad: Mr. Vasdyan, and the Cursed Tie at the end of season one.
- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: That time when the Stool killed the whole cast at the end of an episode.
- "Blind Idiot" Translation: The title of the season 2 finale is a bad translation of Plot Twist in French.
- Brick Joke: In an early episode, Le Tropeur mentions that he only wears socks on his feet while filming the show. Whenever his feet are on screen in following episodes, you can see he wasn't lying.
- Catchphrase: "Salut, jeunes Tropeurs et Tropeuses !" ("Hi, young Tropers, boys and girls") and "Tropeur, out!"
- Cerebus Syndrome: The episode "Le syndrôme de Kaamelott" is basically a huge Lampshade Hanging on the fact that the show has undergone this Trope.
- Deadpan Snarker:
- Le Snarkeur, obviously.
- Le Tropeur has his moments too.
- Early-Installment Weirdness: the first few episodes contain no Snarkeur, no emblematic T-Shirt and barely any facial hair.
- Harsher in Hindsight: After the Plot Twist in season two, the death of the boom mic guy becomes way less funny.
- Mary Sue: Invoked with Angel McDraconight in season two. He's half vampire, half werewolf, half angel, half demon, half human, half divinity, and claims to be both immortal and a Sex God.
- Musical Episode: The episode on Musicals, of course.
- Putting on the Reich: Mickey Mouse goes full on Emperor Palpatine in the episode on Disney.
- Rule of Funny: Why else would a Stool and a Tie be powerful magical artefacts?
- Sidekick: Le Snarkeur definitely is one.
- Come season two, and Flo does not want that role. He joins the show as an equal partner.
- Those Two Guys: The security guard and the cameraman in the season one finale.
Éruption Cérébale contains examples of:
- Idiot Plot: The whole Back to the Future episode.
- The time traveller basically broke time because he wanted to try McDonald's Schezuan sauce.
- Once an Episode: The fast synopsis of whatever work of fiction is the subject matter.
- Timey-Wimey Ball: Lots of episodes are tackling time travel theories, more or less successfully.
- Zeppelins from Another World: Immediately shows that something's wrong with reality in the BTTF episode.
