Storm Dain Productions is a YouTube channel run by Storm Dain. Normally he only does videogame reviews (or adventures as he calls it) but that doesn't mean he won't do other things. His reviews are humorous in nature and filled with many sketches. He often loses subscribers because of the things he says, such as insulting Rock Band and BioShock, making him a polarizing kinda reviewer.

Provides Examples Of:

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Storm was able to beat a soda shaking minigame in Mario Party 8 due to having enough practice with the trope.
  • Arch-Nemesis: Miiguel. Whenever mocking him, Storm shows himself in a sombrero saying "Soy el, me whore".
    • Also, the Nyko sensor bar, but he seems to have moved away from that.
  • Author Appeal: BOOBS! He spends a good portion of each God of War game talking about the boobs, and even makes a top five list of the best sex scenes in the games at the end of the adventure.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Storm Shadow Dain. He has a certificate to prove it.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Storm does not like the idea of people asking for subscriptions or likes in their videos.
    • Requests to adventure a game/series are mainly ignored.
    • Precision games, owing to a bad experince with Blast Corps.
  • Call-Back: A well known quip in his adventures is referencing his quotes from previous adventures, no matter how irrelevant it is to the game he's adventuring.
  • Catchphrase: After ranting about difficulty: "And this creates frustration levels only previously found in [insert game here]".
    • "All sliders to the right!". After renouncing his interest in character customization since playing Oblivion, all character customization is done all sliders to the right. Also applies when the game asks him to set brightness.
      • All sliders to the right didn't work out for him in the Saints Row: The Third adventure. So he made his character on Jimmy from MSI. Yet he somehow ended up with Tommy Wiseu.
  • Complacent Gaming Syndrome: Invoked. Storm tends to put all sliders to the right in character creation screens, and he only plays as Link on all Super Smash Bros. games.
  • Every Episode Ending: Starting from Bioshock, every adventure ends on a quote detailing his opinion on a game.
  • Fun with Acronyms: GISHAOTYA, "Games I Should Have Adventured On Two Years Ago".
    • Also GISHAOTYAIIWAWROGFTNR, "Games I Should Have Adventured On TEN Years Ago If I Wasn't Already Writing Reviews On Game FAQS That Nobody Read".

  • Happily Married: With Sarah since the adventure with Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops, she also appears in his videos.
  • Kill It with Fire: During his Wii U response video, when Activision came up, well...cue Ominous Latin Chanting. And fire.
  • My Future Self and Me: Storm and Future Storm
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: His reason on how he got a Sega Genesis? His neighbor sold Storm the console for ten dollars because he was on debt on Girl Scout Cookies.
  • Rage Quit: To the point where he broke a Wii Remote in half to his knee and later throwing an Xbox 360 controller to the edge of his TV, malfunctioning it in the process.
  • Rule of Fun: Storm is a firm believer of this trope. His Kameo: Elements of Power adventure is half of him talking about how all a game really needs to be at the end of the day, is fun.
  • Rule of Funny: According to "Storm's Adventures with Fans", he put eight copies of Super Smash Brothers Brawl on his shelf for this very reason.
  • Running Gag: Standalone adventures have their own running gag. These are persistent:
    • One of his electronics malfunctioning in his adventures, although it's uncommon.
    • Naming somebody as characters from Metal Gear.
    • Emphasizing words by flashing each word on the screen.
    • Any game that has customization features, Storm will just ignore and put all the options sliders to the right.
  • Sarcasm Mode: His adventuring style.
  • Something Completely Different: Cooking with Future Storm and Live Boredom.
  • Story Arc: About Future Storm going back in time to give Storm two games that where very cheap in Future Storm's time... and living with him until the Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops adventure where Future Storm goes to the past again to torture his past self for a second time.
  • Take That, Audience!: Storm's Adventure with Fans was about him answering repeatedly asked comments in an annoyed manner. He also takes jabs at certain viewers for telling him about certain quirks.
  • Third-Person Person: Storm's video descriptions are written in third-person to invoke professionalism being written by someone better than him.
  • Token Non-Human: Brenda, a sweeping broom.
  • Updated Re-release: His inFAMOUS adventure, which fixes the phrase "did I loose any friends" to "did I lose any friends", something his viewers have been pestering him for a few years.
    • Super Mario Galaxy, after completing the game and found out that he has to play it over with Luigi, Storm decides to redo his adventure again by replacing Mario with Luigi.

How well does it match the trope?
