Pikmin 2 Final Boss Music Extended Essay

  • Abandoned Catchphrase:
    • He used "For the sheer fact" quite a bit in FireRed, but he deliberately stops himself from doing it come Pokémon Crystal.
    • He started saying "But I digress" in Kirby's Epic Yarn but told himself to stop because another Let's Player already had that catchphrase.
  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: In his deleted tag video, Chugga claims he can turn his head 180 degrees.
  • Abusive Parents: Claims the player character has these in Pokémon Emerald. As an aside, he's alluded that in real life he didn't have the dad of the year either.
    • Downplayed in one anecdote he relates in episode 4 of Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time; his parents gave him a wallet under the guise of teaching him the value of money, telling him to always put his money in the wallet. They would then take whatever money he put into the wallet on numerous occasions when he wasn't looking. In their defense, according to Emile, they did feel terrible about it, but that sure didn't stop them.
  • Accidental Innuendo:
  • Accidental Misnaming: People apparently often mispronounce his name, Emile, as Eel. Chugga calls this out during Super Luigi Galaxy, saying it's not that hard to pronounce.
    • It is also a common occurrence for people to pronounce his name as Emily. Chugga is not amused.
    • He also isn't amused at Mimikins, a name given to him by his mom and brought up in Super Paper Mario.
  • Accidental Pun:
    • While fighting Kingfin in Super Luigi Galaxy he gets a Life Mushroom and says: "Hey, thank you! Look at that! How many bosses help you out like that? Kingfin, you are the king, man! [beat] Actually, that wasn't even an intentional...[laughs] I didn't even intend to make that pun!"
    • In Majora's Mask's Snowhead Temple (the main dungeon for Link's Goron form), Chugga says: "So this dungeon is off to a pretty rockin' start - I'm just making bad puns without even realizing it now".
    • While at the Oho Oasis in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Merri ends up stealing his "shocking" pun and calls her out for "stealing his thunder".
    • Quite a few in the Lost Tower in Pokémon Platinum making several "insensitive" puns without meaning to. When he encounters a young couple, he says that whoever decided to go on a date there is a "deadbeat". Later he says that he should be able to use an Escape Rope by tying it to a tombstone and rappelling out the window, and once he realizes how distasteful this is, he says he should cut away "before I dig myself a hole."
    • During episode 48 of Ōkami, when he's in the Water Dragon's belly, Chugga remarks that while the scenery and 'trees' are beautiful, the fact that they're the insides of a water dragon is gross.

    Chugga: You know, these trees look really pretty, but at the same time when you think about what these trees probably are, it's kind of gross. So they're like, they're pretty gross, is what I'm saying—they're pretty gross, wow. I didn't even intend that pun.

  • Adapted Out: In as much as a Let's Play could be considered an adaptation - while his Pokémon LPs have detailed bios and commentary on every Pokémon in the game by Chugga, Mythical Pokémon (which can only be obtained via real life events) are almost never mentioned. At best, he'll drop a sly reference to them in places where one would encounter them (such as Ilex Forest's guardian being a tiny fairy) or use them for something (such as the Deoxys Forme-changing meteorites in Veilstone City) before promptly moving on and never mentioning them again. This is justified, however, as they're now completely unavailable in said games without cheating. However, his Platinum LP finally averts this, as he not only gives Mythical Pokémon bios, but also gives the non-Mythical Regiswhom are catchable in Platinum via an event Regigigas bios and describes in-game events where one would catch them.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: He judges from how Groose has a picture of himself in view of his bed that this is what he does in his spare time.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: The title for Episode 5 of Link's Awakening is "Big Bottle Bash Brings Back BowWow".
  • Adorkable: All the fangirls (as can be seen herenote May not have sound on mobile without headphones) agree with this.

    Chugga: I am such a nerd. Then again, I always get all these comments from girls being like, "You're so cute when you're nerdy." Since when are people cute when they're nerdy? You know what, I think I went to high school in the wrong time time period cause dang, when I was in high school all the girls were like "Eww! You play video games over the age of 5! You're never gonna get laid cause that's so important in high school!" What high school should I have been going to that I wasn't?

  • A God Am I: Played for Laughs in his Super Paper Mario LP, while running on water.

    Chugga: I'M GOD!

  • Alas, Poor Villain: He expresses pity for Mumkhar after seeing his mangled and broken remains in Xenoblade.
  • All Myths Are True: Lampshaded in this video from his Ōkami LP.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: In-Universe:
    • Pikmin/Pikmin 2: Olimar is a loose cannon adventurer with a thirst for blood, and in the sequel, the President is willing to get his hands dirty at exploring the dungeons. Even more so than Olimar and the Pikmin, to the point of challenging Bumbling Snitchbugs.
    • Majora's Mask: The Goron Elder is a Dirty Old Man, Jim is a Badass Bystander, and Zora Link is always trying to get concussions.
    • Pokémon Emerald: The player character's dad (Norman) loves Wally more than his own son, Gym Leader Roxanne is a braggart who sounds like Dr. Phil, and many people in Hoenn are okay with making light of the S. S. Cactus's tragic crash and want to rob from it.
    • Animal Crossing: New Leaf:
      • Shari is a time-paradox zombie because Chugga switched which system he was recording on without changing the time, moving things forward a day. And she speaks in a voice that's somewhere between Creepy Monotone and Baked (though the baked part may just be Chugga's cracky voice). As the months go on, she also starts exhibit questionable behavior to the point Chugga suspects she may have killed Amelia. And as of Valentines Day, she may be Yandere for Chugga.
      • Pango is a manipulative Jerkass who throws away gifts without a second thought and insults the other villagers.
      • Croque as a Jerkass with no redeeming qualities who responds to everything by saying "as if". He could very well be right, since Croque is generally a jerk to Chugga every time he tries talking to him. But then he showed up at Molly's party.
    • Pikmin 3, Brittany is a psychotic fruit addict.
    • Pokémon Platinum: Dawn is a Jerkass who thinks she's a know-it-all even though she only owns a single Pokémon and garners attention to herself because she wears a sock as a hat.
    • Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon: E. Gadd disrespects his Toad employees to the point where he assigns to them a mansion based around what each Toad fears.
  • Aluminum Christmas Trees: He's said that he made his Super Mario Sunshine LP (which was the first non-RPG he did) because he found the game underrated and under-LP'd. A few years later — in part due to Chugga's LP — it's a much more popular game to LP and has gained manymorepeople praising it.
  • Angrish: "DOH! FREAKING PIZZAS". See the links at Hilarious Outtakes below.
  • Annoying Video Game Helper:
    • Invoked during his playthrough of Ōkamiden when he complains about how the Guest-Star Party Member will sometimes Kill Steal an enemy before he can get the floral finisher on them to get monster parts. Chugga, however, wants a more precise version of this trope to be a thing, specifically geared towards only kill stealing from guest party members when its inconvenient ... although nothing has materialized from this request, yet.
    • Subverted in his playthrough of Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. While he becomes annoyed with the liberal tutorials early in the game, he rather likes Stuffwell, the character who gives them, and wishes he didn't have to be saddled with such a frustrating role.
  • Anti-Climax Boss: In-universe.
    • The rematch with Pokémaniac Steve lasts around 20 seconds.
    • Despite fighting what is considered to be one of the game's hardest bosses at a high difficulty level, he takes down Hades' Heart quickly, and with relative ease.
    • Shadoo, the Bonus Boss of Super Paper Mario. After much buildup and having to go through the Flopside Pit of 100 Trialstwice to reach him, Chugga manages to stun-lock him with Bowser's flame breath from the start of the fight. He himself can't believe it's happening.
    • His battles against all three of Pokemon Black Andwhite's Legendary musketeers end hilariously quickly, with Chugga only having to throw a couple of balls to catch them.
  • April Fools' Day
    • In 2009, he did the Mega Man 2 joke LP.
    • In 2011, he tweeted that LP #14 would be Pikmin 2. LP #14 was actually Luigi's Mansion, but LP #15, starting the day after Luigi's Mansion, WAS Pikmin 2.
  • Apologises a Lot: Has a tendency to apologize immediately after making a bad joke or pun, although this doesn't really apply to him in The Runaway Guys.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: From Pikmin 2, Episode 24:

    Chugga: (While attacking an Armored Cannon Larva) DESTROY! KILL! MAIM! ...Taunt.

    Chugga: Freaking DESTROY! KILL! MAIM...and MAKE THEIR DAYS UNPLEASANT! Kill! Destroy! And then... *uses Galestorm*

  • The copyright on 'Amhrán na bhFiann' is due to expire this year, prompting a public consultation on its use.

    A number of submissions proposed that the words 'Fianna Fáil' be removed from the song.

    Fianna Fáil senator Mark Daly said the proposal was "simply populism" and his party would never support such a change.

    "Some years ago, the idea of removing 'Fianna Fáil' from our national anthem was mooted by a number of figures connected with Fine Gael. Thankfully, common sense prevailed.

    "Those who still harbour partisan political positions need to reflect on their position," he said.

    He pointed out that 'Amhrán na bhFiann' has been the national anthem since before the foundation of the Fianna Fáil party.

    He said: "In fact, the Irish language version, translated by Liam Ó Rinn from Peadar Kearney's original English language version, was first published in the 'Freeman's Journal' on April 3, 1923...three years before Fianna Fáil was even established."
