Special MovesEdit

B- F-BombEdit

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.

Move OriginEdit

In the third part of his Philips CD-I review, the AVGN drops literal F-bombs

Side B- PensEdit

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

​Move OriginEdit

In one of his Nostalgia Critic rants, he tosses one of his pens and tells the NC that he has pens that are dangerous.

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.

Move OriginEdit

At the end of the Super Mario Bros. 3 review, he puts on a suit with all the NES accessories (The Zapper, the Power Glove...) and destroys the game, which became evil.

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.

Move OriginEdit

The Power Glove is an infamous NES Accessory which was similar to the Wii Mote, but worse. AVGN did an entire review for it.

Final Smash- Super Mecha Death ChristEdit

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.

Move OriginEdit

The Super Mecha Death Christ is a character that first appeared in the Super Mario Bros. 3 review, assisting the Nerd to destroy the Evil Game. It also appeared in some other videos like the TGWTG First Aniversary.

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?

Seeing that he needs to make an escape, Irate Gamer summons the Game Genie from an SNES cartridge to stall for time. He then travels across the region with AVGN's trophitized body, dodging the pursuit of Nostalgia Critic and his new allies...
