Emiliano Rodolfo "Emile" Rosales-Birou (b. April 8, 1990), better known on YouTube as Chuggaaconroy or Chugga, is a popular Let's Player. He is known for his bad puns, high optimism, frequent hilarious freak-outs, and epic fails in his videos.

Let's Playing

Origins: Mother & Mario RPGs (2008-2009)

"What's going on guys, this is Chuggaaconroy, and I'm actually, um, I'm gonna do my first LP ever, this is of one of my favorite games, personally, uh, this is Earthbound, probably a game that all of you have heard of but none of you have actually played so I'm kinda hoping to get the word out about it a little bit more, um, well just sit back and enjoy."
―Emile's first intro[src]
On March 16, 2008, Emile uploaded his first video, a handheld recorded video of a Super Smash Bros. Brawl replay, entitled Super Smash Bros. Brawl Boss Very Hard Clear.[3]

A little under two weeks later, Emile began his first Let's Play of the RPG Earthbound, posting EarthBound - Part 1: Meteor. Earthbound lasted until June 10, when EarthBound - Ending [Part 3/3] - Final Part marked the conclusion of Emile's first LP.[4]

Emile followed up Earthbound with the preceding game in the series, Mother (also known as Earthbound Zero), uploading Mother - Part 1: When Lamps Attack on June 13, 2008. The Mother main series, which Emile would later dub "my least favorite of my work", lasted about a month-and-a-half until the uploading Mother - Final Boss: Giegue [Part 2/2] & Ending. [5]


Chuggaaconroy is well known for his sense of humor and puns. He is quite a lighthearted guy, but he is also known for his extensive knowledge of game mechanics and lore.
