  • 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.

"You know... he's that guy that does anime. That one that likes boobs."
Cquote2.svg


Lost Pause is "a channel about playing video games and Noble being a big dummy." He typically plays anime games, including visual novels and JRPGs, with wacky humor and a load of tongue-in-cheek perversion. Noble also does Q&As (#AskNobleSenpai) and reactions to anime-related videos.[1] Since May 2016, his Let's Plays have gradually shifted out in favor of more general videos and reactions[2] ever since his channel was taken down and then reinstated on March 2016,[3] but the occasional one still pops up. He often streams on Twitch.

Noble's channel is getting more and more popular, having gained more than 1 200 000 subscribers as of August 2018.[4] Noble and his foxgirl mascot Lily the Mechanic are portrayed in the official webcomic Fox Girls Are Better, drawn by Curryless and written by Merryweather.

Lost Pause provides examples of the following tropes:

A-E

  • All for Nothing:
    • Noble remarks with this when his trip with the Perverted Professor to get Panmon goes nowhere in PokePanties.
      • In "SAVE YOUR YOUTUBERS FROM YOUTUBE", from February 29th, 2016, Noble says that he is having stress over the possibility of his channel, 2 years of hard work, getting taken down in an instant.

Cquote1.svg

Yuri: Plus, if you can finish eating the entire special-mega-lunch during lunch time, they say you'll have good luck with finding work, or become the queen of the campus, so all the students are giving it a shot.
Noble: You realise that is just a scam to get you to order big, expensive shit? (laughs)

Cquote2.svg
  • Rage Quit: Played for laughs in Ep 12 of Kagamine Rin Waifu Game, when Rin calls the delivery guy she saw "onii-chan".

Cquote1.svg

Takeshi: (thinking) I really should have stopped. And under most circumstances, I would have. But even as I was running, other sounds rode the winds, sounds of chaos and confusion.

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

    • "When you crack that whip [...] restraining Bunni like a dominatrix, it's amazing!"
    • "You're stronger than that! Act like it!"
  • You Make Me Sic:
    • In Time Tenshi Ep 17, Kenji, taken hostage by rogue scentist fighters Mitsuki and Bunni, goes up an elevator, a horrific reveal awaiting him. But just before that, Noble notices two mistakes in the narration:
      • The elevator is described as coming "to a close".
Cquote1.svg

Noble: "A close"? You mean "A stop!"

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Noble: I am getting so critical right now!

Cquote2.svg
  • In Burokku Girls Ep 4, Noble "corrects" the blonde warrior's grammar when running from the Darkness (even though he's kinda wrong), and lampshades himself:
Cquote1.svg

Noble: Girl, I'mma correct your grammar as we're running for our lives, okay?

Cquote2.svg

Cquote1.svg

We don't judge here.
