Kilplix N Friends

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

A bunch of YouTube videos about a gamer named Kilplix and his friends. These started as montages from Battlefield 2 matches, but when Kilplix started posting footage from his buddies' Left 4 Dead sessions things really took off. Even though his videos are simply a bunch of friends slaughtering zombies (and each other), they've gained hundreds of thousands of views due to the hilarity that ensues and the personalities of the players, who are:

After the initial Left 4 Dead videos, Kilplix has since branched out into other games, posting videos of Bad Company 2, Resident Evil 5, Portal2, and more recently, Battlefield 3 and Terraria. He's also posted several videos of other games, including Amnesia the Dark Descent, F.E.A.R., and Serious Sam.

Tropes used in Kilplix N Friends include:

Con: Your fly is down!
Cody: Yeah, probably. Wait, these are bibs, they don't have a fly.
Con: Show me? Show me your crotch! (crouches, stares at Elis' groin)

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Con's boast of being "The Flame Master" aside, he does have a habit of getting too close to admire his handiwork.
  • Idol Singer: Jonna can do a pretty good Jigglypuff impression.
  • Infernal Retaliation: If Con's going down, he wants a proper blaze of glory. "That's right! Can't touch me! Set you on fire."
    • Kilplix has remarked that Jed picks up gas cans specifically so they can explode whenever someone tries to revive him.
  • I Will Only Slow You Down: Con tries to playfully invoke this at one point, but it backfires:

Con: (melodramatically) Leeeave me, save yourself!
Jed: 'kay.
Con: ...Uh, so he does.

  • Laser-Guided Karma: Jed was hiding during the Fallen campaign in a different room. Then a smoker pops up. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Similarly, in the initial L4d2 playthroughs, Jed goes into a safehouse and shuts the door behind him. There is a hunter in there. Hilarity Ensues.
    • While he and Jed and Cody are taking shelter from a Tank in a treehouse, Kilplix taunts Jonna with "no girls allowed!" Immediately...
  • Let's Get Dangerous: If Con yells "It's on!" then a) the team is being pressed hard and he's about to start fighting with even less restraint than usual, or b) he's had one friendly fire incident too many and is after payback.
  • Metaphorgotten: Jed's description of his teammate. "Con is kinda like an M&M at the bottom of a bottle of Pepsi. It doesn't fizz, and it doesn't sizzle, it's just a bottle of chocolate Pepsi... that melts in your hand. You know, it's not edible, but it's kinda cool."
  • Nightmare Face: This horde rush.
  • No Party Like a Donner Party: When the entire group ends up stuck in a hole, Jed (playing as Coach) informs them that as the fattest one, he'll try to eat the others, so they'd better shoot him first.
  • One-Man Army: During one Typical Night of FAIL after repeated TPKs, Jed got fed up, ran off, and somehow completed the level on his own. In The Parish campaign Con once got separated from the group and held out not only against a Horde, but three Special Infected (the others didn't believe him until they saw the corpses). And then there's the Kilplix Killing Sprees from the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 videos.
  • Pure Awesomeness: What Con insists that he is.

Con: When the word "awesome" was invented... I was born.

    • Jonna has a moment, too:

Kilplix: How did you survive [being pulled off a two-story drop by a Smoker]?
Jonna: With my amazingness. Also, breasts.

  • Pyromaniac: Remember, you can't spell "conflagration" without Con. "Gimme a Molotov! I feel naked."

Con: Hahaha! With this... I shall rule the world!

Cody: Remember, you only have to run faster than the slowest person.
Kilplix: (limping, a floor behind, and closely pursued by a Tank) I HATE YOU ALL!!!

  • Stupid Sacrifice: Poor coordination for the second The Sacrifice playthrough leads to Kilplix and Cody jumping off the bridge simultaneously.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Just because everyone's friends doesn't mean that the gaming sessions go smoothly. Particularly evident in the "Typical Night of FAIL" videos.

Jed: Con took down half the team back there.
Con: And half the zombies!
Jed: ...But half the team.
Con: Well, you know, you take some, you give some, you kind of shoot some, what can you do?

  • Tempting Fate: Kilplix a few times. "You ever notice how a horde never attacks... here..." (rising chorus of snarls) "Okay, I shouldn't have said that."
    • "They're not gonna spawn YAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!"
    • When they can hear a tank somewhere nearby, but can't see him yet:

Jed: (Solid Snake voice) Where are you?!

Kilplix: Do not seek him ou-(slow-mo scream when Tank drops down right in front of them)

  • Too Dumb to Live: Whether it's misuse of explosives, lethal cases of Attention Deficit Disorder, or a poor choice in escape routes, everyone will have their moments.

Con: (posthumously) I wasn't sure if it was a water bottle or a gas tank... so I shot it.
