Super Mecha Death Christ

Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 BC Version 4.0 Beta is a satirical character that has appeared ocassionally in the Angry Video Game Nerd web series.

Hand-to-Hand Combat

The Angry Video Game Nerd is execellent at hand-to-hand combat.


Pens are what the Nerd keeps in his shirt pocket. In the TGWTG Team Brawl, the Nerd uses one to disarm the Nostalgia Critic and as demonstrated by the nerd, it can be used as a projectile.

NES Zapper

Being one of the best known NES accessories and Nerd weapons, the Zapper is a grey (later orange), revolver-like plastic toy used to loosely simulate a shooter. Also nicknamed "the gun" and "the light gun" due to the way it operates (sensing to see if the player hits the invisible box of light coating a target), the Nerd wields a pair of these holstered when he's the Super NES Angry Video Game Nerd.


Super NES Angry Video Game Nerd:

Super NES Angry Video Game Nerd (Also known as the NintenNerd) is when the Angry Video Game Nerd wears a whole lot of accesories to the Nintendo Entertainment System as a form of armor and weapons. This is one of the few times we see the Angry Video Game Nerd without his glasses.

NES Accessory Battle Suit:

He has a belt of various cords holding the NES Advantage in front and two dual Zappers, the Power Pad is a projectile resistant cape, The LaserScope's removable scope module and Super Scope are used as laser-guns, and (during the R.O.B. the Robot episode) the U-Force is used as laser reflecting body armor. He also has the ability to grow hundreds of feet in size. He uses the Roll 'n' Rocker as a shield during his fight with the Nostalgia Critic in his basement.


To put it lightly, the Nerd has serious anger issues, to the point of even destroying some of the games he reviews. He often drinks beer, attempting to relieve his frustration and sorrow.

The Nerd's trademark is his filthy mouth. In almost every review he repeatedly swears to insult games. He's often quoted as saying that he would rather succumb to violent and scatological acts than having to suffer through the game he's reviewing.

In a Game Theory episode that focuses on the Nerd, it is suggested that the Nerd's anger and poor bowel movement consistency (when shitting on games) comes from the fact that he suffers from Paranoid schizophrenia as well as Crohn's disease. This has not been proven to be fact.

It could also be said that the Nerd is a masochist, as he spends his entire life doing nothing but playing video games that he hates.

More aspects of the Nerd's personality are heavily revealed in Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. It is shown that he does have a kinder and nobler side to him, as he has a strong love and care for his fanbase and puts himself in danger quite frequently to keep them safe.

He is also revealed to have a friend in a fellow gamer and fan named Cooper, and that he values video games above other things that most normal people would be more interested in. This is the reason why the Nerd tries to avoid romantic relationships or involvement with females.
