Angry Video Game Nerd is the 6th playable character in Original Lawl.

He's a nerd who's anger from bad video games rose so high that he's able to use verbal swears and household appliances as deadly weapons, using them to play his way through the match to show how bad it is.

Special Moves

B- F-Bomb

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 short afterflames from the explosion. If the control stick is pointed downward before the Nerd curses, the bomb drops on the ground like a trap and takes longer to explode unless someone touches it.

Move Origin

AVGN is no strangers to throwing F-Bombs, but in the third part of his Philips CD-I review, the AVGN drops literal F-bombs.

Side B- Pens

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

​Move Origin

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- Nintenerd

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 Origin

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 Glove

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 Origin

The Power Glove is an infamous NES Accessory which was made popular from one line from The Wizard. The Nerd also did an entire review for it.

Final Smash- Super Mecha Death Christ

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 won't affect any of AVGN's stocks. After the aforementioned KO or waiting 18 seconds, the Nerd appears back on the stage.

Move Origin

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.

Character Description

James Rolfe (born July 10, 1980) is a film maker and well known as the creator and star of The Angry Video Game Nerd. Rolfe runs, which is his own personal website and encompasses everything he works on, such as his films, movie reviews, and Angry Nerd episodes. Rolfe recently partnered with where he releases movie reviews and gives his own opinions and critiques on films he loves and hates. In actuality, unlike Angry Video Game Nerd (character) he plays, he's a lot more decent, where we actually see him smile and laugh behind the scenes, unlike his angry counterpart, where whenever he does it's out of sarcasm or insanity.

Otacon: But... why? He's a big star!

Snake: It's my mission to own this geeky guy.

Otacon: But Snake, do you have any idea how excited I am that he's here in Lawl? Snake... ? SNAAAAA-

(Otacon is replaced in the call with Colonel)

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?

(Colonel is replaced in the call with Otacon)

Otacon: Nope... they fought an epic battle and AVGN kicked his butt. He will kick your butt too Snake...

Snake: Shut up butthurt fanboy!

Role In The Subspace Emissary

The AVGN appears in Real City, where he waits for the Nostalgia Critic to arrive at the Nerd's house to fight. The AVGN wins the battle, and both the Nerd and Critic have an insult-off, until the Irate Gamer arrives and trophies AVGN. NC tries to attack Irate Gamer using his 6 mm pistol. 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, Madotsuki and Tommy Wiseau.
