Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • Ascended Fanon:
    • Originally, Lewis just referred to Dr. Linksano as "the Dr. Insano from another universe", but fans really latched onto the name "Linksano", so he ran with it.
    • Lewis's commentary on his Power Rangers # 1 review reveals that he did not originally plan to use the gun acquired from Cable to defeat Mechakara, and that he put it in specifically to fulfill the fans' expectations of it having been a Chekhov's Gun.
  • Big Name Fan: In comic book and Power Rangers fandom (especially considering he got invited as a guest to PowerMorphicon)
  • Creator Backlash: Linkara is embarrassed by the self-published novels he wrote in high school. Whenever they're brought up, he ends up asking that people don't track down the first two and only look for the third, which he is the least embarrassed by.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Mightily Murdered Power Ringers was written by Eisner-nominated comics writer Nat Gertler (who puts in a Cameo) and drawn by Sinfest creator Tatsuya Ishida. Linkara himself is visibly shocked when he learns this, and the credits remark that it's just proof that nobody produces good stuff 100% of the time.
    • An even more insane example: In his "New Guardians #1" review, we have Snowflame appear, being played by Lewis' real-life friend Will Wolfgram. ...aka: the guy who played Lord Vyce.
  • Hey, It's That Sound: He uses sound effects from the Descent games to good effect in the story arcs, and especially during the climactic battles. Many of them match events in the scenes that would trigger them in the games.
  • Old Shame:
    • When he was 13, he wrote a Self-Insert Fic crossing over the Pokémon anime, Digimon Adventure, and Sailor Moon, copying a story from a Doctor Who audio drama. He actually brought that up to Bennett and had him make fun of it.
    • Then, there are his self-published novels, which, while not nearly as bad as above examples, still show that Linkara has come far as a writer since he wrote them (on the bright side, they contain what may well be the origin of his nickname).
    • He admitted during Magfest 9 that the early chapters of Lightbringer were written when he was "young and opinionated", saying he'd even given up on editing them.
    • Many of the comics he reviews are the Old Shame of good writers, or at least are bad writing by good authors. Especially Fabian Nicieza. Nat Gertler actually appeared on AT4W to admit this of Mightily Murdered Power Ringers.
      • In the commentary of the Bimbos BC movie, Brad Jones revealed that the director was actually a good friend of his. When Brad went to the guy to let him know that he and Linkara were going to review the movie, said friend's response was reportedly, "Good Lord, why would you want to watch that?" The two go on to point out that he was about 16 when he filmed it.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: Pollo's new design.
  • One of Us: During The Situation, Linkara urged many on his Twitter to help support TV Tropes by buying the merch. During his "Top 15 Screw Ups" video, while addressing his mis-pronunciations he put up the discussion of just that from this page's Just Bugs Me page.
  • Real Life Relative: His parents, brother, and girlfriend have appeared on the show numerous times.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • In the Previously on Countdown segment, Chester A. Bum and The Nostalgia Critic have a long discussion about blowing up the world.
    • Linkara has done this a several times with '90s Kid, Cable, and Mechakara.
    • Iron Liz and Judas Liz.
  • Throw It In: Linkara's commentary for review of the Power Rangers comic notes that in his morphing sequence his glasses reappear and notes that it is excusable by the fact that that kind of thing happens in the original.
  • What Could Have Been: Lovhaug has mentioned an idea to create a "90s Kid Video Game Review Show" in which he would review video games made in The Nineties from 90s Kid's unique perspective. So far, only one came up, and that was a gag interrupting a review if anything.
