• 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.

File:Paw Dugan 1846.jpg

Paw Dugan tackles everything from music videos, tunes from past, present, and future, video game music specials, and being a Let's Player with fellow reviewer and all around lovely geek girl Pushing Up Roses.

Tropes used in Paw Dugan include:


 Graham: Now why would she toss aside this beautiful harp?

Paw: Because she's a cunt!

  • Running Gag: During his King's Quest V LP, he would often respond to Cedric's claims that something was dangerous by saying some variant of "is it pOIsonous!?"
    • In his Hugo 2 Let's Play with Pushing Up Roses, after accidentally saying "Uncle Great Horace" instead of "Great Uncle Horace" at the start of the game, he proceeds to mix up the words in a different way every time the character is mentioned.
  • Ship Tease: With Elisa Hansen as of Phantom of the Paradise review.
  • Shout-Out: The end of Paw's Let's Play of King's Quest V has King Graham controlling Paw going "ain't I a stinker" in reference to Duck Amuck.
    • Before that, Paw pays homage to South Park by having Graham's talking head become a "King Swayze" flappy head in some scenes, especially in some funny scenes with the roc's nest and after he pushes the boat in the water.
  • Skyward Scream: CEEEEEEDRIIIIIIC!
  • Sophisticated As Hell / Lyrical Dissonance: The Lyrical Poetry series reads songs such as Disturbed's "Down with the Sickness" and Big Sean's "Ass" as heartfelt poems.
  • Take That: To The Irate Gamer, After not hitting any movies on his dartboard in his Singin in The Rain review, he says "Random-selection is ruined..."
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: He feels that with the Backstory of Total Distortion, involving The Metal Lord invading Earth with Guitar Warriors. Then the Lord himself recruits Paw to his army...
  • The Un-Reveal: Elisa is about to tell Paw all of the weird places the dartboard portal has taken her when it suddenly activates and the two are teleported away mid-sentence.
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: In the Mary Martin's Peter Pan review, he initially mistakes Peter Pan to be a woman (being played by an actress and all). He proceeds to do "manly things" like fixing a car and drinking beer shirtless to recover his masculinity.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Experienced this when he realized that Limahl, who sung the theme song to The Neverending Story, is actually a man after thinking for 20 years that it was sung by a woman.
    • During The Rocky Horror Picture Show episode of Music Movies, he's completely stunned to learn that the opening song "Science Fiction/Double Feature" is sung by Rocky Horror author Richard O'Brian.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Angry Joe on Transmission Awesome. He teases because he loves.
  • With Lyrics: The "Backtracking Song", which uses the tune of "Ode to Joy".

  "Backtrack, backtrack, fucking backtrack, got to do this shit again..."
