TheStrawhatNO! is ThornBrain, Mugiwara Yoshi, JigglyJacob, and formerly BigTUnit1's Let's Play channel, based on YouTube.

The full Let's Play list can be seen below, including ongoing, completed, canceled, and on-hiatus LPs. Thorn and Yoshi also did Retsupuraes on TheStrawhatNO! from 2010-2011; the complete Retsupurae list can be seen further below, including those deleted from the channel.

History

Pre-Formation

Prior to TheStrawhatNO!'s and TheMidnightFrogs' respective foundings, Thorn and Yoshi had been involved in Let's Playing to various degrees.

Thorn recorded a run of Survival Kids in early 2009 on her old channel, comicstripdude, which she later thought was poorly made and deleted. (She would later LP and complete the game again in 2014.)

In November 24, 2009, Thorn and DFatman formed the group's original Let's Play channel, FATLPs. Yoshi joined the group in late December of that year, and TheMidnightFrogs' original core trio was formed. While most of the LPs were played by Fatman, Thorn played through the child portion of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Yoshi played through Pikmin. Thorn and Yoshi split from Fatman and FATLPs on April 12, 2010. Full details are on the FATLPs article.

2010: TheStrawhatNO! Formation and First Year

The channel was formed April 13, shortly after the split from DFatman. TheStrawhatNO! takes its name from Yoshi's then-YouTube channel, MugiwaranoYoshi; "Mugiwara" is Japanese for "Straw hat", in itself a reference to Yoshi's favourite manga, One Piece. Thorn and Yoshi's LPs for FATLPs, such as Pikmin and Ocarina of Time as well as the Hero of Time review, were reuploaded on TheStrawhatNO's Blip channel (now deleted).

The team primarily recorded Retsupuraes through April and May 2010, (their last RP was uploaded June 2011), before returning to Let's Plays. Their RPs were occasionally compared positively to the original Retsupurae channel and Chip Cheezum & General Ironicus' RPs, though the duo don't think positively of their RPs anymore, and they're all now unlisted.

The duo attempted to return to Let's Plays on April 28 by beginning a Sonic Adventure 2 LP, then continuing Ocarina of Time on May 31 from where they left off after FATLPs. SA2 failed to kick-off and was canceled within days, while OoT would go on to be canceled in August after severe capture problems. Thorn instead sporadically recorded a Majora's Mask LP, though that too would be canceled in favour of the Something Awful LPs. Yoshi's Pikmin 2 LP also ran into technical difficulties and would have to be restarted in early 2012 when he could get a new computer.

2011 - 2016: Something Awful

Thorn began making LP threads on Something Awful's Let's Play forum on May 11, 2011 with Bomberman Hero, joined by BigTUnit1. The team jumped in viewership after beginning the thread, and they formally consider Bomberman Hero to be the first proper LP for the channel. Completed LPs since Bomberman Hero can be seen below.

The YouTube channel was made a YT partner through Necessary Gaming on January 3, 2013. They opened a Patreon account to help pay for better Let's Playing equipment in January 2014 (closed in 2017), and Thorn followed with her own Patreon in February 2015 to help pay for her rent. Recurring guest commentators included an-artist-complex, Highwang, and JigglyJacob.

2017 - Present

Travis bowed out of the group due to a lack of availability in early 2017, and Yoshi put LPs low on his priority list in favor of work. Thorn was the only active team member for the next two years, though Yoshi occasionally appeared to commentate streams. Yoshi decided to dedicate himself to LPs full time in 2019, opening his own Patreon as a tip jar, and Jacob was made a formal team member that same year. As of 2021, Yoshi is once again inconsistently available, but he and Jacob are still Thorn's primary co-commentators, and Jacob frequently leads his own LPs and streams.

The channel was a part of Necessary Gaming from January 2013 until January 31, 2018, and with Screenwave Media from February 5, 2018 until January 31, 2021. They have been independent from networks since.

Retsupuraes

Thorn and Yoshi began doing Retsupuraes when they started the channel purely for fun, as inspired by Retsupurae themselves and Chip & Ironicus. These were the primary videos of the YouTube channel for the first several months before the two resumed making Let's Plays. These are all set to "Unlisted" on YouTube but can still be watched by clicking the links. Deleted Retsupuraes are further down the page.

Deleted

The first five Retsupuraes and several other subsequent RPs were deleted from TheStrawhatNO, but they were all backed up on file sharing sites. The first five were deleted due to the noisy crickets in Yoshi's room:

Other Trivia

  • At the time of completion, (March 10, 2010), the Pikmin Let's Play was the fastest commentated Let's Play of the game, being completed in 12 in-game days. This excludes non-commentated Speed-Runs of the game of which the fastest was 9 days, though Yoshi took several gameplay cues from Speed Runs.
