 Howdy guys, it's NintendoCapriSun here!

~NintendoCapriSun, opening almost every video ever


NintendoCapriSun (real name Tim Bishop) is a popular Let's Player on YouTube, with over 170,000 subscribers. He is very prolific, having made full Let's Plays of more than 40 different games, and working on his 55th (The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword). On December 15, 2010 he announced that he had been made a YouTube Partner. In 2011, he joined a new LP collective called The Runaway Guys along with Proton Jon and Chuggaaconroy.

In addition, he has two separate YouTube channels, one titled BreakingNCS, where he posts video blogs and other miscellaneous videos. The other one, which actually predates Nintendocaprisun, is JealousGuy, and features more of rants and short film stuff. He is also a member of The Game Station.


Games NintendoCapriSun has Let's Played:

  • Contra series:
    • Contra III: The Alien Wars
    • Contra
    • Super C

His Let's Plays provide examples of:

 NCS: Right in your face, man, right in your armpit! How many different places on Bowser's beaten, battered, bruised, beleaguered, bludgeoned body can we hit next? (Beat) Those are all actually words, too.

  • Catch Phrase: Not particularly defining ones, but he has several recurring phrases, such as "Get some more toilet paper!" and "So happy." Hell, he even included most of his catchphrases in one of the previous backgrounds of his channel.
  • Cliff Hanger: In this video, he takes on a timed mission in Banjo-Kazooie, and he comes within one second of failing and the video cuts off.
    • He also has done several in Final Fantasy IV, exactly where one would expect them. Cutting off before Rydia re-joins the party is one he claims he's wanted to do his whole life.
  • Creator in Joke: "A BEEEEE!" It apparently came from an old home movie of his family's where he was freaking out over a bee.
  • Damn You, Muscle Memory!: With all of the Zelda videos he's made introductions to, it's no surprise that he sometimes introduces a different game entirely as "The Legend of Zelda: [Game Title]" by accident.
  • Digging Yourself Deeper: During one boss fight in Donkey Kong Country 3, he admits that knowing a certain song makes him feel "kind of gay." He immediately backs up, saying "Not That There's Anything Wrong with That," then goes on to try and explain himself, then gives up because he's just making it worse.
  • Epileptic Trees: Invoked in his Super Mario 64 LP, where he indulges in this, theorizing that Princess Peach has an Evil Twin who is Bowser Jr.'s mother.
  • Evil Laugh: He's not particularly evil, per se, but he does have a very distinctive laugh with which you'll become familiar after watching a few videos.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Multiple times in Yoshis Story. Melons tend to get "camoflaged" in his fruit border, but one time he missed a melon right in the middle of the screen (and added an anotation pointing out his flagrant missage). In another episode, he spends several minutes in a panicked state, looking for eggs, without realizing that he has a full egg train following behind him.
    • Also happens quite often in his blind run of Conkers Bad Fur Day. He got a lot of flak one time for not immediately realizing he had to take cheese to a mouse.
    • In general, forgetting the obvious is quite common in his Let's Plays. His The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess LP features him buying a fire-resistant shield before entering the Goron Mines and then forgetting to equip it for the entirety of that dungeon. Amazingly, he manages not to lose his wooden shield despite nearly every room of that place containing fire and/or lava in abundance.
    • In the Starfruit minigame in Plants vs. Zombies, he continually fails to realize he has enough Sun to start planing them. He adds in annotations from the Starfruit, getting increasingly annoyed as NCS fails to plant him.
    • During his mostly-blind run of the final stage of the Lost World of Donkey Kong Country 2, after getting through a chunk of the stage, he wonders if there's a checkpoint. While it's right in the middle of the screen. Again. Cue more annotations. Another life later, he drops into the checkpoint STILL without noticing it, leaving him surprised to spawn there after he died once more.
    • In his blind run of DKC 3, during the run of the last world, he failed to note in Lightning Look-Out that the little lightning was the warning for the big lightning. He only noted this during a bonus game, 11 minutes into the video. During the same chapter, in Koindozer Klamber, he was desperately looking for a Bonus Barrel in the 2nd half of the level, and when he arrived to the screen of the Bonus Barrel, he kept throwing himself into the holes without noting the Bonus Barrel being just there. He just noted that like one minute later.
    • Also in his Mario Party 2 solo run, while he dominated the competition (See Crowning Moment of Awesome above), he forgot to show us the detailed stats for the Mystery Land board.
  • Fat Slob: See below.
  • Fridge Logic: Invoked when he named the Aeon Cindy after Dario in his Final Fantasy X LP.
  • Gasshole: He has active bodily functions, and he'll mention when they act up.
  • Gentle Giant: He's about 6 feet tall and 250 pounds, but is probably one of the nicest people you will ever meet.
    • He has lost about 60 lbs since starting his gym runs, but it hasn't effected his kindness one bit.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Twice during Chapter 6 of Mother 3. With very good reason.
    • Played with in the Conkers Bad Fur Day finale. Comments were saying it was okay to cry in the ending cutscene where Conker states he'd give up everything to have Berri back. He never did (if he did, he held it in), but did finish it off with a "You can't end the game like that!!"
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck: His signature Unusual Euphemism, "Frick-frack."
  • Got Me Doing It: Lucahjin's Catch Phrase/Verbal Tic "Sir?! Sir?!" rubbed off on him, and he admitted that she'd got him started on saying it.
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: Appears to be building this kind of friendship with Empolo18, to the point where he trusts him enough to give him his Youtube password to update NCS's LP's while he's away.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: NCS made a Conker episode called "Dick for Progress" where he made no progress... except for telling us the next Runawayguys LP is Super Smash Bros Brawl.
  • Imaginary Friend: "Prugga" and "Choton" from his Mario Party 2 videos. He starts referring to the CPU versions of Mario and DK as his absent friends, and starts talking to them, spouting their catchphrases for them, and even telling them to stop fighting.
  • Incredibly Long Note: In this video, NCS sings Happy Birthday to Lucahijn and on the final line, proceeds to hold the "to" note for over 28 seconds.
  • In the Style Of: Much of his Final Fantasy IV LP has HC Bailly-style cliffhangers.
  • Large Ham:

  "CURSE YOU, CAPRISUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNN!!!!

 Nintendo Capri Sun: "It's like I got squashed against the ground by a Thwomp, but both me and him were upside down when it happened. I just can't explain that, the absurdity of it all."

 "Goodbye, my horsey. Goodbye!"

 Alright, that's not funny, that's just obnoxious. I don't wanna turn into Chuggaaconroy here. OOOOOOHHHH! ...Sorry.

Notes

  3. Finished, but he hasn't ruled out spontaneous updates for the sake of fun.
  4. This popular line comes from Weird Al Yankovic's "A Complicated Song."
