Special MovesEdit

Standard B- F-BombEdit

Avgn fuck bomb by ryuunake98-d3j1vet

AVGN spits out an F-Bomb from his mouth, both verbally and literally, doing 12% to opponents with the explosion. During the explosion, opponents can take 4% damage from the afterflames of the explosion. If the control stick is pointed downward before the Nerd curses, the bomb drops on the ground and takes longer to explode until someone touches it. The bomb has a limited range. Electric Nightmare can control placed F-Bombs.

As seen in the picture above, the AVGN drops literal F-bombs in the third part of his Philips CD-I review.

Side B- PensEdit

The Nerd tosses a pen. It travels farther than an F-Bomb, but it does less damage.

Up B- NintenerdEdit

The Nerd dons his Nintendo suit from his Super Mario Bros. 3 review and flies upward. He can cancel the flight after 2 seconds or when B is pressed. In midair, the Nerd can fire his Super Scope by pressing A.

Down B- Power GloveEdit

The Nerd lets out a shock with the infamous Power Glove. If the shock hits someone, the Nerd can control him or her like a slow PK Thunder for 2 seconds, but he can't move the opponent downward. While the opponent is in levitation, pressing B tosses the manipulated opponent, canceling the control.


Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 BC version 4

Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 BC version 4.0 BETA BITCH!!!!!!!

"Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 BC version 4.0 BETA BITCH!"

The Nerd shouts "Super Mecha Death Christ!" and summons, of course, the Death Christ. Pressing B makes him shout to stun any opponents, A fires short blasts from both sides, and up and B fires homing missiles. The tank can do all of these techniques while moving or flying. Should the SMDC end up KO'ing himself, it doesn't affect any of AVGN's stocks. After the aforementioned KO or waiting 18 seconds, the Nerd appears back on the stage.


  • Down Taunt- *drinks Rolling Rock*
  • Side Taunt- "I am the domination of the internet."
  • Up Taunt- "I'm giving you both middle fingers!" *spins around and flips the bird*

Victory/Losing PosesEdit

  • Victory #1- "Can we spell it out? You're a poopy head!"
  • Victory #2- "Aww, kick fucking ass! Life is kinda cool sometimes."
  • Victory #3- *takes a electric drill to a game cartage and spins it around"
  • Victory #4 (against the Critic)- "Lick my balls, you piece of shit Nostalgia Critic."
  • Lose- *drinks Rolling Rock without stopping*

Trophy DescriptionEdit

All those years playing shitty video games has paid off, now he can throw away F-bombs much more efficiently than any other, both to directly insult or to defend his honor! His lack of controlling impulses also makes him throw his pens to far distances. Not only the primal rage, the technical knowledge learned also made him the first man to discover the true use of a DDR dance mat. From reviewing games to beating the crap out of people? What were they thinking?! May the Gods of Furious Strong be with him as he crushes opponents. He's one big windrammer.

Snake CodecEdit

Solid Snake: This guy is using geeky Nintendo stuff to fight me!

Otacon: So Snake, you're fighting AVGN?

Snake: Yeah I will kick his ass!

Otacon: But... why? He's a big star!

Snake: It's my mission to own this geeky guy.

Otacon: But Snake, do you have any idea how excited I am that he's here in Lawl? Snake... ? SNAAAAA-

(Otacon is replaced in the call with Colonel)

Colonel: Snake.

Snake: Colonel! Hacked right into my channel, huh...

Colonel: You shouldn't be talking about AVGN with Otacon... He's one heck of a fanboy... AVGN leads an entire army of fanboys. He's that famous.

Snake: You know... AVGN is not the only geeky guy with glasses on the field of battle... does he get along with the Nostalgia Critic?

(Colonel is replaced in the call with Otacon)

Otacon: Nope... they fought an epic battle and AVGN kicked his butt. He will kick your butt too Snake...

Snake: Shut up butthurt fanboy!
