Toby Joseph Turner (born March 3, 1985), also known by his stage name Tobuscus, is an American Internet personality, actor, comedian and musician. Originally from Niceville, Florida, he is best known for his YouTube videos. As of July 10, 2019, Turner has a total of over 14.61 million subscribers and over 3.810 billion video views over his three YouTube channels.[2][3][4]

Early life

Toby Joseph Turner was born on March 3, 1985 in Osborn, Mississippi and grew up in Niceville, Florida.[5] He attended the University of Florida, and having an interest in filmmaking, graduated with a degree in telecommunication production.[6] Toby's mother later took out a loan and bought him a video camera, an act he appreciated, as it helped begin his YouTube career.[7]



Toby Turner has grown to become a popular personality on YouTube, achieving his early notability through his Tobuscus channel, and later through his secondary vlogging channel, as well as his gaming channel. Toby's style of content is often extroverted, rambling, and energetic, but he always avoids using severe profanity and censors any explicit content due to his target audience.[8][9][10] Toby has speculated that he suffers from ADHD and some have similarly made this assumption due to his boisterous and sometimes inappropriate behavior.[11][12][13]

Aside from his channels, Turner also worked with Philip DeFranco on Like Totally Awesome (LTA) and Cute Win Fail, after befriending and being employed by DeFranco.[14][15] LTA was a gaming and review channel that ran during the late 2000s and early 2010s.[16] In 2010, Turner signed with the multi-channel networkMachinima,[17] before switching to Maker Studios in July 2013.[18]

Main channel

Toby Turner first joined YouTube on May 14, 2006, when he created a channel under the name of "Tobuscus".[2] The first video that remains on the channel is a sketch based on the 2006 film Click.[19] One of Turner's earliest popular videos is "Don't Tase Me, Bro!", a remixed recording of the University of Florida Taser incident in which his classmate Andrew Meyer was stunned with a taser gun by a police officer.[20] Interviewed about the video by MTV, Turner explained that, after watching the clip, "as soon as [he] heard [Andrew] yelling, [he] knew it would fit in a hip-hop song", and that he "wanted to give [Andrew] the profits" from sales of related merchandise.[20] The Tobuscus channel has since continued to focus on comedic skits and animated sketches, achieving recognition for those such as "I Can Swing My Sword",[21] "Safety Torch"[22] and "Nugget In A Biscuit".[23] Turner's Literal Trailers series is also one of his most popular, earning him mainstream recognition from CBS News, who described his rendition of the Dead Island trailer as "amazing" and "hilarious",[24] and Wired, who praised Turner's Literal Trailer of Iron Man 3.[25]

Vlogging and gaming channels

In April 2009, Toby began using his "TobyTurner" channel to upload daily unedited vlogs detailing his personal life, which he dubbed "lazy vlogs."[26] In July 2010, Toby registered his fourth (third in use) YouTube channel under the name "TobyGames",[4] designating it for a new series of comedic Let's Play videos. The channel has featured playthrough videos of numerous indie and AAA games since its inception, including the long-running Minecraft and Happy Wheels series.


In addition to producing his own original content over three channels, Turner has worked together with a wide range of other YouTube personalities on various projects. In 2009 he performed a guitar collaboration with Joe Penna (MysteryGuitarMan) using two separate videos played simultaneously;[27][28] in 2010 he made an appearance on the fifth episode of The Annoying Orange, titled "A Cheesy Episode";[29] in early 2011 he worked with iJustine on a number of LittleBigPlanet 2 Let's Play videos;[30] since 2011 he has worked on many projects with Jack Douglass, including parody "Tobjackscus",[31] sketch "Dubstep Tobuscus",[32] and music videos "Take Off Your Clothes (Like Scarlett Johansson)",[33] "Razors in Your Apple (On Halloween)",[34] and "The Valentine's Day Song";[35] and in 2012 he starred in a short with Olga Kay entitled Olga Kay Goes Haywire.,[citation needed] as well as starring in an episode of the YouTube series, "Retarded Policeman".[36] Tobuscus has also appeared alongside notable celebrities on several occasions, including the music video for the song "Whistle While I Work It", featuring Chester See and Wayne Brady,[37] as well as starring in a three-parter YouTube series "Terminator Genisys: The YouTube Chronicles" to promote the film Terminator Genisys. A range of well-known personalities were involved in the series, including Arnold Schwarzenegger himself, and YouTube stars such as Lilly Singh, Olga Kay, Sean Klitzner, Epic Lloyd, The Warp Zone, and Kevin Lieber.[38][39][40]

Aside from these works, Turner has also presented a web series called CuteWinFail, created by Turner and co-produced with Philip DeFranco and his production company FishBowl Worldwide Media, since its inception in October 2010,[41] although in November 2012 his involvement ended after 100 episodes of the show.[42] He also works as a host on Tagged, a gaming-themed YouTube series produced by NODE Studios,[43][44] and plays the Satan character in the Fine Brothers web series MyMusic.[45]

Film and television

Turner's first feature-length film role came in 2010 romantic comedy film New Low, in which he played stand-up comedian Dave, the best friend of main character Wendell played by writer, producer and director Adam Bowers.[citation needed] The film was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2010, before it received coverage at the Austin Film Festival in October and at the Glasgow Film Festival the following February, and was later released on DVD in 2012.[46][47][48] Later, in 2012, he starred in psychological horror film Smiley, written and directed by Michael Gallagher and starring fellow YouTube partner Shane Dawson.[49] Turner also starred alongside Dawson in the 2015 comedy Bob Thunder: Internet Assassin[50] and played a minor role in the 2015 film The Great Gilly Hopkins.[51]

From 2012–2014, Turner starred in the Cartoon Network animated series The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange. Turner played Nerville, the only human character who can interact with the fruits.[52][53]

Other work

Aside from video production and other entertainment, Toby Turner – who is described on his official website as a "viral marketer ... [and] consultant for viral video and social media platforms"[54] – has worked with a number of major companies on advertising campaigns, including NBC, Disney, and others.[55] Among his online commercial credits are adverts for Fox crime drama series Lie to Me, footwear manufacturer and retailer Timberland, snack food product Pop-Tarts, and social network aggregation website Ouibox.[citation needed]

Toby has also secured hosting roles for a number of events and series, including reporting on the Toshiba "Set Me Free Tour" for MTV in August 2009[56][57] and presenting holiday special web shows for Comedy Central, Spike and VH1.[55] In December 2012, Turner was nominated for the award of Best Host at the 2013 Streamy Awards,[58] although eventually lost out to KassemG.[59]

In May 2013, Turner set up a fundraising campaign on crowdfunding website Indiegogo for an iOS (and later Android) game based on his Tobuscus Adventures YouTube series, called Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards!.[60][61] The fundraiser surpassed its goal of $240,000 within two days, reaching more than $644,000.[17] The game features Turner as main character Tobuscus as he fights off hordes of zombies to get to the Wizard of Darkness,[60][62] and also cameos Gabe Hohreiter as Gabuscus, and Turner's dog Gryphon.[62] The game was released in March 2015 for iOS and later for Android,[63][64] and in May 2018 for PC,[65] with plans to extend this to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.[66] Before the release of Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards!, Toby also revealed that a second, albeit smaller game, was in development at the same time and based on the popular sandbox game Minecraft, titled "Mine The Diamond", which was later released in June 2015 for iOS.[67][68]

In May 2014, Turner signed a three-book deal with Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins, to help create an illustrated journal-style series based on Tobuscus Adventures. The first, second, and third books were published in the fall of 2015, summer of 2016, and winter 2017, respectively.[69] A fourth book is scheduled to be published in 2018.[66]

Turner was chosen to voice the character of Ant-Man/Scott Lang for the 2016 mobile game Marvel Avengers Academy.[citation needed]


Within the first few years of his three channels running concurrently, Turner was considered one of the most popular YouTube personalities, later recognised as a "mainstay",[70] "pioneer",[71] and "one of the site's greatest innovators."[17] However, according to Social Blade, which tracks YouTube channel statistics, recognition gradually began to waver from around late 2013; for each one of his channels, the number of new subscribers and total views per month began to steadily decrease, coupled with an increasingly number of people unsubscribing over those joining. Although Turner was met with much attention as a result of the sexual abuse allegations made against him in 2016, the trend nonetheless continued.[72][73][74] Turner has on occasion expressed how his channels have suffered from management issues on YouTube that ultimately restricts how many video views he receives. For example, in an interview with Heavy in 2018 and a video uploaded in 2019 titled Dear Algorithm, he stated that content creators such as himself were occasionally not appearing in subscribers feeds and as a result the majority of his subscribers were not notified when he uploaded new content.[75][76] Turner has also attempted to reach out to YouTube directly, such as in 2017 tweeting to their administration that neither the subscribe button nor the more recently introduced bell icon, which immediately notified subscribers of new uploads, were working properly at the time.[77]

Harrison Jacobs of Business Insider in 2014 meanwhile wrote of how Turner had been pursuing various projects outside of YouTube. He found that while he still published frequently to his channels, he seemed particularly devoted to other work in the hope that it could direct him into more "traditional media", citing Turner's first book based on his web series Tobuscus Animated Adventures, as well as his mobile game Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards!. Jacobs noted how the development of the game, which ultimately took place over an almost two-year period,[78][79] had run over-budget, despite having received more than double the requested funds, and had been met with a number of delays, which Turner himself ascribed to a lack of experience.[17]

Turner has at times responded in a tongue-in-cheek manner to the evidence and comments made towards the popularity of his three channels, expressing little concern,[80][81] and at one point asking for a more positive outlook as his earliest videos had similar view counts to his current material.[82]

Personal life

Having begun his video-making career in Niceville, Turner moved to Los Angeles in 2008.[55]

Sexual assault allegations

On April 8, 2016, Turner's ex-girlfriend April Fletcher, known online as AprilEfff, made several allegations against the YouTuber, including that he was addicted to drugs, that he had cheated on several of his former partners (including Fletcher), and that he drugged and raped her in February 2013.[83][84] Writing a blog post on Tumblr, Fletcher claimed that she had contemplated suicide following the episodes, and that Turner had likely committed the same acts to other women.[84] YouTuber and ex-girlfriend of Turner, Amelia Talon, corroborated Fletcher's accounts shortly after, alleging that she had been drugged by Turner as well.[83][85] On April 9, 2016, Jaclyn Glenn, another of Turner's ex-girlfriends, posted a video on YouTube responding to the allegations. Glenn claimed that Turner had affairs in their relationship, and that while she thought the rape allegations were possible, she personally believed that they were untrue.[86] Former Turner girlfriends Olga Kay and Melanie Murphy both denied that they were ever assaulted by Toby,[87][88] though Murphy admitted Turner was not faithful to her.[88] While not endorsing the rape allegations, both former Turner girlfriend Tara Babcock and former collaborator with Turner, Philip DeFranco, attested that Turner has a drug problem, is non-monogamous in his relationships and needs mental help.[89][90]

Turner responded to the accusations on April 11, 2016. In a short video, he dubbed Fletcher's claims as "false" and claimed that he had "never done anything without her consent [and] never tried to trick her into anything".[83]

On June 14, 2018, Turner released another video titled "#MeToo ...late?" where he claims he was advised not to say anything when the Tumblr post was published, then proceeds to give his accounts of what happened. In the video he insists nothing wrong occurred that night, just him letting a friend (Fletcher) sleep over at his house, due to her insisting she was too afraid to return home that late at night. He also claims that Fletcher wanted a romantic relationship with him, while he wanted only to remain friends. In the video, Turner also suggests Fletcher hinted at making a Tumblr post falsely accusing him of rape.[91]

As a result of the allegations, Turner was replaced as the voice of Ant-Man/Scott Lang for Marvel Avengers Academy.[92]

Who's not afraid to take a risk to get the shot he wants!

At least the ominious horizon's behind them
They must have turned around
They won't forget this moment
Cause they'll only be alive for a couple more
He offers up his tear absorbent thumb
Can this moment last forever?

No, of course not!
Girl, I wanna ask you something
Find more lyrics at ※
Even with all these people watching
Will you maybe hold my lighter?
F*** you!
No, you thought that-? Oh my God! No, sorry!
It's cool, I'll just blow you...
Up! (Oh yeah!)
Pan up to an angry window-shopping zombie
He's at the front of the line, he let the breeze in
Could you warm it up? The undead get rather cold
Why don't we demonstrate our hand-held heaters?
Cut to black-
Friday shoppers are the worst
When demand exceeds supply, so usually when there's a fire sale
It's a pun...
At least there was only one. Look on the bright side...
GAH! There's another one!
Dead Island Riptide

Web Video / Tobuscus

Audience, wha-? What are you doing at my TV Tropes page, audience?

Tobias Joseph Turner, aka Tobuscus, is a YouTube personality known for his comedy, songwriting, and acting. His work includes original songs and comedy shorts, "Literal Trailers" of video games and films, song and commercial parodies, and a comedy clip series called "Cute Win Fail" (which consists of highlighting videos of cuteness, awesomeness, and failure). He also has his own "Lazy Vlog", and a gaming channel, Toby Games, also known as "Toby Sucks at Gaming".

Despite having his major presence online, Toby is no stranger to acting, appearing in 2008 in the TV series Stranger Things (notthat one) and the 2010 indie comedy New Low. In 2012, he broke into mainstream TV as the primary live actor in Cartoon Network's production of The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange. In the same year, he also played a role in the indie slasher flick Smiley.

To watch his Tobuscus videos go here, for his Lazy Vlog go here and for his gaming channel go here. His website is here.

Tropes associated with Tobuscus and his videos:

  • Achilles' Heel:
  • Adaptational Badass: In the Dead Island 2 Literal Trailer, Scooby-Doo and his team are considered this in a zombie apocalypse.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Toby's name. Also, he claims to be allergic to alliteration... Aaaatchooo!
  • A God Am I: Exaggerated; he frequently yells "I am a God!" after accomplishing odd or mundane tasks in his gaming videos, such as, in Minecraft, eating rotten flesh without getting sick.
  • A Load of Bull: The Mini Minotaur.
  • Always Second Best: His song 2nd HOTTEST GIRL (A Love Song) is about the 2nd hottest girl on a show who will always be second hottest.
  • Animesque: His animated adventures.
  • Angrish: A LOT. Especialy in the earlier videos of him playing Happy Wheels, where half of his speech is just him shouting "GOD DANGIT!" at various volumes and a "FPFFFF" sound in place of where curse words should go.
  • Armor Is Useless: Parodied in his Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Literal Trailer.

    Hopefully those guards have good armor / No they don't, maybe they do / They don't.

  • Artifact Title: As of now, "Evil Puppet Show Ft. Mini-Minotaur and Creeper" and "Edited Lazy Vlog" have been edited, but Word of God states that he sits down when he edits, so he is still being lazy. Additionally, it is practice for sketches.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!:
    • Toby claims to have ADD, although like many of his claims, this is unreliable.
    • Celebrated by the original song, "There's a Floppy Disk on the Floor", in which his mother apparently shares this trait.
    • Multiple times per episode in his Lazy Vlogs, with several ("Ooh, an airplane," "Ooh, flowers," and "Shhh!") approaching Catch Phrases.
    • In the Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Literal Trailer, the assassin is easily distracted by a feather - when several guards are pointing their spears at him during an assassination.
    • In his gaming episodes, he has an incredible ability to get distracted and lose track of what he's supposed to be doing. In sandbox games like Minecraft, this is fine, but it tends to frustrate (or alternatively, amuse) viewers of the more story-driven games to no end, especially when he doesn't pay attention to mission objectives.
  • Awesomeness Is a Force: In the Literal trailer for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, this is apparently how Ezio kills a guard. note The guard in question actually gets shot by an arrow, but it is barely visible. besides, the notion of Ezio just killing a man through being awesome in his proximity is so much cooler.

    Guard says, "Stop!" / Just kill him with your awesome.

  • Badass Baritone: During his playthrough of Duke Nukem Forever, Toby imitates Duke's deep voice with uncanny precision. Of course, Toby himself is anything but a badass, but his mimicry of one is hilarious. He can be seen practicing the Duke Nukem voice in earlier vlogs, long before the game was released.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Especially bears with guns and grenades.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: During his Amnesia playthrough, he jumps off a cliff rather than die at the hands of a monster, and invokes this as his justification. He also invokes this during his playthrough of Limbo, in which he drowns himself to avoid the spikes he is floating towards.
  • Big Eater: Toby mentions being this in his Let's Play of Tiny Thief. Apparently, he will, on occasion, order 2 large pizzas and eat them both by himself. He mentions his mother taking him to McDonald's where he would eat 2 Big Macs, along with chicken nuggets.
  • Big "NO!": A frequent event in his Let's Play videos, most often when a game crashes or an ally dies.
  • Blatant Lies: Much of what he claims in his Lazy Vlogs is either obviously untrue or questionable. In this vlog, he goes meta by lying about his lying "tell".
  • Blessed with Suck: In one Cute Win Fail vid, Toby imagines a superhero whose power is getting struck by lightning.
  • Butt-Monkey: Steven. Gabuscus also gets regularly abused by Toby, mainly over his Embarrassing Nickname.
  • Black Comedy:

    Toby: If cats ever run out of food, they can just hunt allergic people. They could just jump on my face, and hug it. My last words would be "Awwww..."

  • Call-Back:
  • Catchphrase: Has several noticeable catch phrases which are:
    • "Audience, wha-!? What are you doing in [place the camera is], audience?"
    • "Bless your face. If you sneezed during this video, bless you. Peace off/Toby out/Joey out. Boop!"
    • "Intro/Mid-tro/Outro of darkness, then redness, then whiteness!"
    • "Da Da Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Subscribe"
    • "oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god"
      • A different variation (though less prominent) for male cosplayers is "Nerdnerdnerdnerdnerdnerdnerd..."
    • "I'm gonna die. I'm gonna die. I'm gonna die."
    • "I'm Dead. I'm Dead. I'm Dead. I'm Dead."
    • "I'm LITERALLY dead!"
    • For his gaming videos: "Hello once again, audience."
    • "Knock Knock Moe'Suckra!"
    • "Well, clearly..."
    • "Whatchu got?"
    • "Ooooh! Gimme Gimme."
    • "God dang it!"
    • "Sponsor!"
    • Referring to various people as "girl," usually when the one in question is NOT a girl (his male dog and the audience are the usual targets) and while imitating Leon Phelps, The Ladies' Man.
    • "Wheew!"
    • Whenever he plays an Ubisoft game, he literals the logo flash. When he interviewed an Ubisoft employee, it went meta.
    • (usually singing it, sometimes not) Suck it! Suck it, suck it suck it!
    • AGH! No! Please. Please. Please. Please. Please. Please.
    • From the Animated Adventures, "ARGH! I'm boooored!"
    • "Yo' momma!"
    • "What the balls?"
    • From Happy WheelsLet's Play: "This is the time."
    • "Hello once again, audience! Where we left off, I was _______."
  • Celebrity Resemblance:
    • Toby mentions a few times that he's been told he looks like David Tennant, apparently because of his messy hair and sideburns.
    • Toby has mentioned that his friend Gabe aka Gabuscus, has sometimes been mistaken as Taylor Lautner.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Elevating bad guys, wide shot bad guys.
  • Comedic Sociopathy:
    • In "Safety Torch", Toby invades an innocent kid's house, wakes him up in the middle of the night, scares him to death by telling him monsters are out to get him, offers him torches to keep the monsters away, gives him water to put out the resulting fires, and finally charges him $500 for those "services". And, in case there's any doubt as to whether this is deliberate extortion or not, the Frankenstinian monster he brings with him says, "'Sup, Toby" in an easy-to-miss speech bubble.

      Timmy: I don't have 500 bucks!
      Toby: Oh, that's fine! I'll bill your parents.

    • In Viral Song, Toby torments the same kid again. First, when Toby sees Timmy trying to write a song, he decides to go help him — so he breaks down the kid's door with a crowbar. The rest of the song has Toby give Timmy a song that sounds pretty catchy. Unfortunately, Toby then refuses to clean up the things he brought into Timmy's room, claiming that Timmy "asked" for his help, and instead goes to upload the song to iTunes, revealing that he wasn't actually giving Timmy a viral song, but teaching him how to write one, himself. Then he informs Timmy that he's charging the kid $500 for his help.
  • Cool Sword: The whole point of I Can Swing My Sword.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: invoked An interesting subversion in the animated music video for "I Can Swing My Sword" — the Minecraft recipe for a diamond sword is one stick and two diamonds, but Toby's version has three. Many people pointed out the error, but it's intentional, as the patent he claims to have in the song is specifically for a three-diamond version, making it unique.
  • Cute Kitten: The "Cute" clips of "Cute Win Fail" have a high representation of this trope.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Toby goes into baby babble whenever Gryphon is in the shot. He doesn't know why.
  • Cut Short: Not counting the games that have No Ending, Toby hasn't finished several playthroughs on TobyGames, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Max Payne 3 (which was ended because the publisher insisted he not show the cutscenes).
  • Damned by Faint Praise: "2nd Hottest Girl" is a parody love song about Exactly What It Says on the Tin: the second most attractive girl on a web reality show. The joke, of course, is that Toby thinks he's being genuinely complimentary.
  • Delusions of Eloquence: Played for Laughs with his usage of the word "filibuster", which he uses in random sentences regardless of its actual meaning.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: In "Literal Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows":

    Careful Harry, he doesn't have a nose. / Harry needs some sleep. / And he needs a nose. / And he needs some sleep.

  • Disney Death: In April 2014, a rumour went around the Internet that Toby was dead. He made a video about it.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: While playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, a guard says the popular meme, "I used to be an adventurer like you... then I took an arrow to the knee." Toby slaughters her, screaming, "Do you know what you've done?!"
  • Distracted by the Sexy:
    • Toby has made this into a Catchphrase: "Hot hot hot hot hot hot," which pulls double duty as Gibberish of Love.
    • In the first episode of Tobuscus Animated Adventures, Toby is so busy ogling a chick that he fails to notice (or care) that she's a zombie. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Toby's commentary is very easy to take in the wrong context if you keep your eyes closed on certain occasions. This is almost always noticed by the commenters rather than Toby realizing it during the video. Specific examples:
    • This episode of Happy Wheels at 2:46
    • This part of a highlight from an episode of Happy Wheels at 1:38
    • This episode of Happy Wheels at 11:56
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Not Toby, but his pal, Gabe. Because Gabe-uscus sounds a lot like Gay-buscus. Gabe is not amused when Toby calls him this.
  • Epic Fail: Celebrated by his "Cute Win Fail" series.
  • "Everybody Laughs" Ending:
    • The first episode of Tobuscus Animated Adventures subverts this. Gabe and Toby have a good laugh over their predicament, then Toby turns into a zombie and eats Gabe.
    • In the "Tobuscus Canadian Adventures" episode, the duo exchange some nervous laughter similar to the first episode. Then Gabe strangles Toby.
  • Evil Laugh: Toby does a great one at the end of "I Can Swing My Sword", but loses some evil cred when Gabuscus interrupts the laugh to wrest the sword from him.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin:
    • The whole point of his Literal Trailers: taking what is happening in the trailer... and taking it literally. In song.
    • His Lazy Vlog series is a vlog that is extremely lazy, frequently lacking such basic elements as a subject.
    • "Toby Sucks at Gaming," his Let's Play channel.
    • "Nugget in a Biscuit"
  • Fate Worse than Death: Sorry, other two clips, you just won a date withSnooki.
  • Genre Savvy: After Jack Douglass attempted to prank call him and tell him his girlfriend was pregnant and that he didn't know what to do, Toby revealed on the phone that he was watching the stream and had been for a while, in case Jack tried pulling that prank.
  • The Ghost: Steven, Toby's mysterious assistant in his videos. About Steven There is no Steven. He's just someone Toby made up... we think.
  • Gibberish of Love: "Hothothothothothot" counts as this too, sometimes. If you believe the story about Toby trying out for the cheerleader squad, anyway.
  • Ho Yay: invokedSpoofed between Toby and Jack of Jacksfilms.
  • Hulk Speak: From the highlight reel of his F.E.A.R. 3Let's Play: AARRGH! MOMMA ANGRY.[1]
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick:
  • Inherently Funny Words: The name Herbert, apparently.
  • Insistent Terminology: Toby's friend, Gabe, would like everyone to know that his nickname is pronounced "Gabe-uscus", not "Gay-buscus". Too bad Toby insists on pronouncing it without the pause. Played for Laughs in Tobuscus Animated Adventures when Gabe insists on the pronunciation even as Zombie!Toby is eating him.
  • I Want Grandkids: In his spoof of an Axe deodorant commercial, Mombuscus tells Toby, "Now go make me some grandchildren!" According to Toby, she wasn't acting when she said that.
  • Jerkass: Toby portrays himself as one in several videos, notably "Tobuscus Animated Adventures" and "Safety Torch".
  • Jive Turkey: Toby tends to talk like this when slipping into another one of his "characters".
  • Killed Offscreen: The fate of "Irresponsible Mom" in "Get Bloody"
  • Kissing Under the Influence: According to "How to Get Women", Axe Body Spray for MenTM makes every woman anywhere near you attack you constantly.
  • Left It In: "Edit that part out, Steven!" "You left it in?" "YOU LEFT IT IN?!"
  • Let's Play: His gaming channel, Toby Sucks at Gaming.
  • Lighter and Softer: Toby's earlier videos have swearing and a few more dirty jokes, but over the years he's toned them down and made his videos more family-friendly. Some fans think this is because his niece Ciara started watching.
  • Literal-Minded:
    • His "Literal Trailers" series, where he adds Literal-Minded lyrics to movie and video game trailers.
    • In his Lazy Vlogs, Toby often interprets fan comments literally, such as when a fan says that they would "die" if he read their letter on the vlog and he then apologies profusely for murdering them.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase/Couch Gag: The intro to every episode of Cute Win Fail has a different running gag per episode. The formula usually goes like this:

    How's it going? I'm Toby Turner. [random phrase that starts off the running gag] and this is "Cute Win Fail", the show where videos from three different [items relevant to the running gag] compete to become the most EPIC.
    [Starts listing the three entries from the previous episode]
    Your votes have all been [action relevant to the running gag] and the most epic video ever of last week was... [insert winning entry here]
    Sorry, other two clips. [joke about the loser videos' punishment, also relevant to the running gag]
    It's time for three new videos to enter the competition for epicosity. Let's watch!

  • Male Gaze: His Catchphrase "Hothothot" counts as an Invoked Trope. The Hot Symphonies ([2] and [3]) are a celebration of the phenomenon.
  • Manchild
  • Metaphorgotten: He talks so much and so quickly that he often loses track not only of where he was going but where he started.
    "If you took Gonzo and put him in an arena with a bunch of other animators and gave them all, like, medieval weapons and put, like, a lion in there, the lion would probably kill them all. But Gonzo is a good animator." [4]
  • Meaningless Meaningful Words: Parodied in Dramatic Song.
  • Mistaken for Racist: A Running Gag in his vlogs and gaming commentaries, usually by noticing that something he's just said came out wrong and either digging himself deeper, backpedaling, or descending down a Freudian Slippery Slope.
  • Monster Protection Racket: In "Safety Torch", Toby brings his own monsters to scare little Tim Tim into buying stuff to drive them off.
  • Motor Mouth

    "Thewinnerofyesterday'stshirtisannotatedatthebottommiddleofthevideoifyouwantoentertowinatshirt... like and post a comment, girl. Or guy. Or other."

  • Mundane Made Awesome:
    • The spoof "Hot Pockets" ad does this to blowing on hot food to cool it. BLOW ON IT, WANDA!
    • In the "Mini-Minotaur", song, tartar sauce is used as a lethal weapon against the titular beast.

      OPEN THE JAR! (Twist the lid off!)
      OPEN THE JAR! (Counterclockwise!)

  • Must Have Caffeine: Parodied in Eight O'Clock Coffee, and frequently a subject of his Lazy Vlogs, to the point where he no longer bothers to say "Sponsor!" when mentioning Starbucks.
  • My Friends… and Zoidberg!: In his "Trapped in a pistachios ad!" vid, the audience is advised to watch clips of A-list celebrities, and Snooki, eating pistachios.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Redneck Pirate Assassin!
  • No Sense of Direction: He gets lost constantly in Minecraft and Skyrim, despite having a minimap mod for the former and a compass with quest markers in the latter, mainly because he ignores them most of the time.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Toby abandons his normally perpetual joking demeanor during the more serious and heart-wrenching moments of his The Walking Dead playthrough.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping:
    • Played for Laughs, especially in his vlogs, as he is capable of imitating a remarkably wide range of accents and voices but not, seemingly, of staying in them for more than a few sentences.
    • In his Assassin's Creed: Revelations playthrough, he attempts to imitate Ezio's Italian accent, with mixed success — at several points he slips into Russian and Transylvanian accents, notices, and gets himself hopelessly confused.
  • Overly Long Gag: The opening titles for Assassin's Creed: Revelations (here). Notable for being in both the source material and Toby's commentary.

    Toby: Ubisoft presents... a game by Ubisoft. And Ubisoft. And also Ubisoft...

  • Overly Narrow Superlative: Mombuscus shall forever be known as "The best mom who ever played Bloodforge in the first hour of its release."
  • Painting the Medium:
    • Toby continually refers to elements of his videos that only exist after they've been uploaded to Youtube, such as the annotations. He also pretends that the audience is wherever the camera is and/or is the camera. In one video, he notices that he's being zoomed out to show the Youtube video frame.
    • In Trapped in a Vlog, Toby introduces the audience to his studio. In reality, he makes his filming background as white as possible and then plays with white balance to complete the effect (this is so he doesn't have to bother with a greenscreen). In that video, however, he pretends to be hiding a vast collection of white or near-white objects in the background, and invites the audience to click on each one in order to see a sub-video explaining what it is.
  • Parody Commercial: The Tobuscus channel features a lot of these, many of which are sponsored by the companies he's parodying.
  • The Pen Is Mightier: Spoofed. Toby has the idea for a gun with a pen bayonet, and orders Steven to patent it and sell it to the military.
  • Precision F-Strike: While voicing Courage Wolf for Animeme.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: In his Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Literal Trailer:

    Last words: Port or Starboard?

  • Precious Puppies: Cute Win Fail also has a large volume of cute puppy clips. When babies and puppies get involved, it becomes a kind of Cuteness Event Horizon.
  • Product Placement: In an interview, Toby said that one of his objectives in creating the Tobuscus vlogs is to attract advertisers. Much of his work is, in fact, sponsored. He further parodies this by yelling "Sponsor!" whenever any brand name appears in his videos, whether it's actually sponsoring him or not, and in some cases even if it's his own product.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
  • Rage Quit:
    • While playing the Justine expansion pack of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Justine quits to the desktop every time the player dies, something Toby found out the hard way. After the third try ended in failure, he gave up, telling the audience, "You play it!"
    • Several times during Happy Wheels.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: His Shih Tzu, Gryphon, who appears in many of his Lazy Vlogs and other videos.
  • Rousing Lullaby: Inverted with Safety Torch, which is intended to wake poor Tim-Tim out of a dead sleep and freak him out so he'll buy Toby's cockamaime security system (a torch to keep monsters away and a pail of water-sold in water bottle-sized increments-for when the torch sets the house alight).
  • Running Gag: Many, all (most? some?) of which are presumably made up for Rule of Funny.
    • Being allergic to alliteration.
    • Being unable/unwilling to read.
    • Being unable to use tools or do anything stereotypically manly.
    • Peeing uncontrollably whenever he gets excited or scared.
    • The hilarious abuse heaped on Steven, which wouldn't be as funny if Steven actually existed.
    • "Reading books" as an Unusual Euphemism for drinking alcohol — as in, he read a lot of books last night and now his head hurts.
    • Constantly improvising parody songs during his gaming sessions. These often become some of the favorite highlights among fans.
    • His original Minecraft world is corrupted in such a way that it crashes frequently in a certain spot. Toby periodically revisits this world out of nostalgia and it always, always crashes, leaving him screaming in fury.
    • Various Let's Play videos of different games are titled "I'M DEAD". More than once in the same series, sometimes.
    • Often in Cute Win Fail, whenever a person or animal falls over in a flailing manner, Toby follows it up with a shout of "HADOUKEN!".
    • Whenever he gets fan mail in which a person says that they "will die" if he reads it on one of his vlogs, he takes them literally.
    • In his newer Happy Wheels videos, he'll say "LAST TIME" and show a quick recap of the last episode, and then say "THIS TIME" and show the new episode.
  • Scooby-Dooby Doors: A deliberate homage occurs during the Mini Minotaur Song, with Tim Tim, the minotaur, and later Toby chasing each other through a door-lined corridor.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: In his gaming videos, nearly always after proclaiming himself to be fearless moments before.
  • Self-Backing Vocalist: He used to do all his own instrumental parts as well, but has recently begun contracting these out.
  • Ship Tease: With iJustine in 2011, and OlgaKay in 2012. Olga confirmed that they had been dating... after they broke up.
  • Shirtless Scene: Twice in Jack's Your Grammar Sucks, revealing a very toned six-pack. The fangirls (and fanboys of that persuasion) went nuts in the comments as a result.
  • Shoehorned First Letter: A Running Gag in his LazyVlogs is trying to make the color of shirt he's wearing alliterate with the day of the week, resulting in such gems as "Thpurple Thursday".
  • Simpleton Voice: A deliberate affectation for many of his vlogs and Let's Plays. It might go all the way into Obfuscating Stupidity, except that he's doing it purely for laughs.
  • Sneeze of Doom: In part 176 of his Skyrim Let's Play, he "sneezes" a fire spell at Tolfdir while at the College of Winterhold. Later, he "sneezes" by attacking Tolfdir with an axe.
  • Stay in the Kitchen:
    • Toby takes on a stereotypically condescending attitude in character during his SkyrimLet's Play.
    • Toby's character in Tobuscus vs. Olga Kay utters the immortal line, "Oh good, you're in the kitchen. I would love a sandwich." She then beats him down and utters the Bond One-Liner, "Make your own sandwich."
  • Stealth Pun: Toby vlogs from a trailer. So he's in a "literal trailer". For bonus recursion, someone remarked that he should make a Literal Trailer about his literal trailer.
  • Studio Chatter: One episode of his SkyrimLet's Play begins with 54 seconds of Toby just sitting there with the game paused, checking the mic, before finally starting the episode.
  • Take a Third Option: Subverted. In one episode of his playthrough of The Walking Dead, Toby is presented with two options; leave a screaming woman to die at the hands of zombies, or snipe her, putting her out of her misery and drawing the dead to you. Toby chooses to shoot the zombies, only to find out that this was not programmed into the game, and he kills the woman despite not aiming for her. He named the episode after this one failure.
  • Talking to Himself: Toby voices most of the roles in his animated videos. He also hilariously voices all the characters in his playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, since the game itself doesn't have voice acting.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • Chicken nuggets and biscuits. Together. He wrote a song about them.

      Then dip the mashed potato covered chicken nugget biscuit in the barbecue sauce. MMMMMMM YUM YUM GIMME AH!

    • He also loves Thai food, and has had to pause Let's Plays on more than one occasion due to the arrival of the delivery guy.
  • Translation Convention: Roman from the Roman & Regina videos claims he can't even speak English... in English.
  • Unusual Euphemism: "God diggety doodle", "What the doodle", "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD", and his signature "God dangit!". Probably his strangest is "Jesus R Kelly Christ!"

    "Grandbuscus": Steven! If you fade me out I swear to doodle I'll pee on your house!

  • Unreliable Narrator: If one believed everything he says in his Lazy Vlogs, one would be... well, very confused. This does, however, leave us with the problem of figuring out exactly which of those things are true and which are not.
  • Verbal Tic: He affects a lisp when talking about things like flowers, birds, or airplanes.
  • Vlog Series: His Lazy Vlog channel.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The mini minotaur from the titular song is deathly allergic to tartar sauce.
  • With Lyrics: His literal trailers.
  • You Make Me Sic: When he narrates text in games with spelling errors (such as Happy Wheels where this happens frequently due to the user-created content), he intentionally reads the spelling error phonetically.

Thanks for reading my TV Tropes page. Bless your face. If you sneezed while reading this page, bless you. Peace Off! Da Da Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Subscribe! Outro of darkness, then redness, then whiteness, then... Boop!

She bent her knees and spread them wide to the sides. I bent down and began to kiss her labia and lick her clitoris, she moaned. - Oh, how nice. I'll introduce you to my husband, let's go to the sauna tomorrow together, '' she suggested.

However, the gaze for some reason only clung to women. And only for a couple of specific places. - Come here, there is a place. I hurriedly raised my eyes and turned towards the sound. Aunt Ira, to whom we came here to visit, was sitting in the far corner on the top shelf and waving to me.
