LilyPichu is a rather personable Gamer Girl that spends her time mostly playing League of Legends, though she also had her shares of playing other games. She also does some humor videos featuring Puella Magi Madoka Magica, makes shortened narration videos for League champs, some anime series, Overwatch heroes (TL;DR lore series), plays piano, and is involved in the fan-dubbing of Katawa Shoujo fan-project "Katawa Seiyuu". Also, she likes to pepper her videos with some simple but cute scribbles/drawings on her own.
She's somewhat (in)famous for her adorably Moe voice that could melt the hardiest of men (that's apparently completely natural, to her embarrassment). In addition to that, she's acknowledged by the North American community as one of the best Lux players in League of Legends (she's also her favorite).
She was in a relationship with famed former pro-player and creator/CEO of Counter Logic Gaming, HotshotGG, but they broke up in mid-2017 and was described by her as a "friendly break up" according to a reply on ASK.fm. Afterwards, she joined the group Offline TV along with other internet gaming personas (including well-known Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft content maker Disguised Toast), hanging out and playing together.
Tropes Associated with LilyPichu
- A-Cup Angst: Lily herself doesn't seem to care, but Jummychu invokes it by making a lot of jokes about Lily's chest size on Twitter at her expense. They've occasionally popped up in some videos as well.
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Invoked in her tl;dr lores. Teemo's growing insanity from seclusion is relatively downplayed, but Lily believes that he's a full-blown psychopathic killer "but everyone loves him because he's a cute fluffy hamster with lots and lots of skins!" She also believes said skins were obtained from killing a bunny and panda.
- Badass Adorable: Not to say she doesn't have her days of losing, but she's both really adorable and a very competent League player. Additionally, many of her favorite champions tend to be fit this trope, like Annie, Lux, or even Teemo.
- Battle Couple: Subverted with HotshotGG. Even while they were dating and well-established LoL players, their synergy was hilariously off.
- Battlecry / Calling Your Attacks: During the Wendell video (playing with Natsumii), she makes longass Kiai noises when charging up Varus' arrow. She suggests this to Natsumii, who's playing Morgana:Lily: When you make that soil ground, you should say this "Phhllrk!"Natsumii: Eeeeww!! That sounded like I just took a poo!
- Butt-Monkey: In many of her plays, someone is going to be the butt end of jokes or misfortunes, be it Natsumiii, Jummy, or even Lily herself.
- The Cameo: Sometimes, if her channel requires some manly-man voice acting, she called in StephanosRex. Likewise, Lily sometimes gets called to do voice acting on cute characters (see above on Badass Adorable) in other projects.
- Comedic Sociopathy: Her attempts at animation with Flash features Lily animating her characters and then abusing the hell out of them for laughs.
- Cluster F-Bomb: Contrary to what you'd expect upon first hearing her, Lily's been known to curse quite a lot in her videos, but mostly to friends.
- Cute and Psycho: Of course, Lily in real life is quite a Nice Girl, but she occasionally and disturbingly likes to portray her internet self as this trope for laughs.
- Double Entendre: Made this glorious example in this video:Lily: Good job! Isn't it helping you? Don't you feel the mental support?Natsumii: I feel mentally... stimulated. *laughs*
- Fake Brit: Invoked during the "Wendell" video with Natsumii, where the two go off on a weird tangent badly imitating British accents, with Lily imitating her stern mother.
- The Gadfly/Troll: Lily is known to play some pranks on her friends. One notable instance was during a who-has-more-kills competition with Jummychu, where she repeatedly KillSteals him all while taunting him that he's losing to "a lowly Platinum player" (Jummy himself was in Challenger).
- Of course, she does occasionally get Trolled back. Earlier, when she took requests on her tl;dr videos, she instead got flooded with requests for Urgot, so she did release them, but starts the video with the resignation sigh and the message "I hate all of you. T_T", and the "Senpai Ahri" video is just a montage of her being trolled by both Jummy and RobertXLee.
- In this video, despite Anklespankin offering him a free trip to PAX if they win the game (which he was apparently serious about), Sykkuno becomes one, intentionally getting killed and misleading teammates in an effort to sabotage the game. At one point Lily calls him out on this, to which he blames it on stress... and immediately attempts to get killed again.
- Gamer Girl: She's mainly popular for her League of Legends videos, but she also occasionally dabbles in others, including Overwatch, Starbound, Undertale, and Dark Souls III.
- Heterosexual Life-Partner: Most famously with fellow Gamer Girl, Natsumii/Sweetiebutt. If men are to be included, Jummychu.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: If opportunity presents itself, Lily won't miss out making awful puns with her friends.
- Nice Girl: She's really personable and kind to everyone. But if she decides that she'll get naughty...
- No Name Given: Or at least No Real Name Confirmed. While she and her friends all refer to her as "Lily", it's never been made clear if it's just shorthand for her title or her actual real-life name, which hasn't been completely confirmed most likely due to her shyness in real life. In only her Facebook, she's listed as Lily Ki.
- Oh Crap Hand Wave: During Nasus tries voice-acting, Annie and Amumu are laughing at Nasus' attempt to read Annie's lines. Then Nasus looks at them, Amumu runs off, and Annie... waves her hand and says "Hi!". Didn't save them from a major ass-whuppin' courtesy of Nasus. "Beaten by a little puppy. Woof woof."
- Pink Means Feminine: Lily's channel is very frilly pink, and she usually draws herself as a pink-haired girl.
- Running Gag:
- Whenever it's clear a friend (usually Jummychu) is about to get obviously curb-stomped, Lily usually pipes in with something along the lines of "If you make this out alive, you will be so sexy/attractive!" It's gotten to the point where she's had to stop herself a few times before they actually do.
- Lily's repeated failures in getting her friends to give her the blue buff, either by having it being stolen by another friend, or the jungler promising to give it to her then swiping it at the last second, or even rarer, simply by pure accident. Generally, if she actually manages to get it, she probably would've had to really work for it.
- Ship Tease: Often likes to invoke this with a good mixing of Les Yay by only teasing other girls. It's especially noticeable in videos with her and Natsumii, right down to the thumbnails.◊
- Shout-Out: She tends to make some to anime series when she played her games. Also, her name is combining the name Lily and the same-named Pokémon.
- Shrinking Violet: Lily mentioned in her "Draw My Life" video how from an early age she was mostly soft-spoken and kept to herself, but she's been trying to come out of her shell more to subvert this. This is reflected in her videos, where over time she's become a lot more comfortable with her friends and showing her face on camera.
- Verbal Tic:
- If she's doing something about Lulu, then Lily tends to insert snorts in the majority of things she says.
- She has a habit of shouting a quick "Hiya!" while using abilities, mainly while firing projectiles such as with Lux, Lulu, and others.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: She and Jummychu cuss at each other, try to one up each other, and yell praises when the other dies in League but they only do that because they know they're BF Fs in life. RobertXLee is also her newest VBB.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: Her voice is surprisingly very flexible. While her normal speaking voice is pretty high-pitched, she's also capable of going quite deep as well as going even higher. Case in point for the former, she voiced Sejuani of all champions in this Falconshield video. Lily aspires to be a voice actress one day, so she could definitely use this as an edge of hers.
