Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures[]


Fred as he appears in The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures.

Fred Fucks first appears as a full-fledged character on the Nerd cast as the boss in Laughin' Jokin' Numbnuts, he is the final boss of the entire game and as the main antagonist. He is the very programmer of Game Land and purposely sucked the Nerd and his friends into said Game Land just to show them what it feels like to be in a shitty game.

There, after the Nerd beats all that is behind him, Fred, who was simply an anonymous voice at the time, mocks and is slightly impressed by the Nerd's determination, skill, and will to get as far as he did. When the programmer reveals himself, the two eject into battle, with Fred donning a handless jetpack, flying around the arena.

Fred's attacks include spewing fire balls out of his bare hands, spawning chained maces swing about on his crotch (which he refers to them as his "balls"), and defecating, using his turds like dropped bombs, thanks to his uncontrollable bowels. After the player finally evades all of these attacks and pumps enough Nintendo Zapper lead into Fred, he is "killed" and Game Land falls apart due to the death of its programmer.

His appearance in the game is unlike that in real life, as it consists of short and spiky brown hair, a beard, jeans, glasses, and a T-shirt with "FF" on it. It was later confirmed in the documentary video that Sam Beddoes, the game developer, provided his likeness for Fred Fucks.[1]

Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe[]

In Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe, Fred Fucks' sprite appearance has been revamped, providing his likeness to Gilbert Gottfried as well as his personality seen in Life of the Black Tiger. He returns as a minor antagonist in the Deluxe Version of The Angry Video Game Nerd II ASSimilation replacing the Nostalgia Critic. [2] He carries a rifle throughout the game. In this version, Fred Fucks built an ultimate computer known as Fuckatron 9000 to make an ultimate shitty game, but it went nuts and instead turn the whole world into shitty game by using it's satellite and scattered the pieces of the Fucks' Capacitor across certain areas and send some minions to stop The Nerd from foiling Fred's nefarious plan. Fred must find all the pieces of the Fucks' Capacitor before the Nerd obtains it. In the end, he accidentally kills himself by the bomb he carried.

Life of Black Tiger[]


Fred Fucks physically appears in the AVGN episode Life of Black Tiger, portrayed by the late Gilbert Gottfried, who was best known as the voice of Iago from Disney's Aladdin. He is a programmer at 1Games, which, in this episode, is located in the jungles of Asia.

After the Nerd described the problems presented in the PS4 port of the mobile game, he decides to travel to Asia to find Fred. While there, Fred points his gun at the Nerd, threatening to shoot a hole on him. It is revealed that he soaked his clothes in tiger urine. He also made a company computer made of coconuts, bamboo and hyena feces.

The two played the game on a PS4 Poo, which Fred also made, commentating on the game's levels and problems. It was also revealed that he made a sex scene between the titular black tiger and the female tiger in the alpha build of the game but the ratings board rejected it. He also had been urinated by a stack of buffalo more times than he could remember.

After finishing the game, the Nerd filmed a commercial featuring Mr. Rigs and Fred, ending the episode.
