Disambiguation:Nyte Blayde says:

  • Nyte Blayde (character) - a Homie unlocked after completing "STAG Party", while this article is mostly about the fictional character within the game world, rather than the Homie.

Is the Homie actually the character from within the TV show? Does the Nyte Blayde Homie give any indication that he knows he is Josh Birk?
I had just assumed it was Birk either way, and was "method acting" as Nyte Blayde, similarly to how he was "getting into character" during WGHGB. --452 00:23, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Oops, the fact that he was also a Homie completely passed me by! I'll add the unlock information but I have no idea how he functions as a Homie in-game. I'd be willing to make the same assumption as you though. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 00:28, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
But I'm wondering if my assumption was wrong, perhaps he is supposed to be the fictional character. Does Birk appear dressed as Nyte Blayde during Nyte Blayde's Return, and how does he act? (I'm not asking about the quality of his acting, that's a given, I mean is he "in character" at all times, or does he acknowledge he is Birk?) --452 00:34, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, he's dressed as Nyte Blayde in "Nyte Blayde's Return", but he acts "normally" as Birk, complaining about being kidnapped before he learns that Shaundi's apparently waiting for him. He does briefly talk to himself about saving Marion from Mr. X as he is psyching himself up before being knocked out when he first meets the Protagonist though. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 00:48, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
I found just one video on YouTube of Nyte Blayde as a Homie; he looks to be Josh Birk dressed up. "We're not going to do anything violent, are we?" was what he said after being called. Also, he drives a Temptress. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 00:53, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
They couldn't very well have him drive the Nyte Blayde, or people wouldn't have to fork out money for it. I'll go through the audio files and find what else he says.
I'm unsure about how the properly write the intro. "Nyte Blayde is a character in the Nyte Blayde franchise and a Homie in Saints Row: The third"? --452 00:58, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Is it not okay how it is already? Maybe "fictional character" instead of just "character"? – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 01:16, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Technically, the description "character in Saints Row: The Third" is 100% correct, but not in the same in way in "Julius is a character in Saints Row: The Third". We'd have to change it to "Julius is a person in Saints Row: The Third" in order for "character" to properly convey the meaning.
"fictional character" works, but the problem is that we would get some smart-ass saying "of course he's fictional, every character is fictional!", so stating "character in the Nyte Blayde franchise" is the shortest way I can think of to convey the proper meaning.
I did the same thing yesterday with Kwilanna, btw. I am also thinking that maybe Jenny Jaros needs an article alongside Kwilanna, but I'm not sure either of the articles would have enough content to make it worth it. At the very least, the article needs two heading, I'll do that now.
If you think "fictional character" would work, we can try it, until we get a smart-ass. --452 01:28, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
How about "Nyte Blayde is Josh Birk's role and alter-ego in Saints Row: The Third"? SuperNull 02:37, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
That is closer to the Kwilanna intro (Kwilanna is a character played by Jenny Jaros in the GIS film in the GIS DLC in SRTT)
Perhaps "Nyte Blayde is a character played by Josh Birk in Saints Row: The Third", but that doesn't fully communicate things, and may leave the reader thinking that Josh Birk is a real life voice actor, so it would have to be "Nyte Blayde is a character played by Josh Birk in the Nyte Blayde TV series, and Homie, in Saints Row: The Third". Maybe we can leave out the "and Homie" part, since it isn't in the intro of most articles. I think it's really only in the title of articles when the character is only a Homie and doesn't appear in the Storyline. Chicken Ned, for example, is more properly described as a Homie rather than a character. --452 02:47, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see exactly what you mean now. I've put "fictional character" in the lead text for now, and hopefully the image caption in the infobox will clear things up for those who are possibly confused. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 15:40, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Kung-Fu Master/Kung Fu reference? Edit

Even though it's probably ridiculously far-fetched, The in game TV series Nyte Blayde's storyline, which includes a love interest called "Sylvia" and a villain known as "Mr.X", could be a reference to the old arcade game "Kung-Fu Master" also known simply as "Kung-Fu" on the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. The game involved a protagonist fighting to save his girlfriend, Sylvia, from the evil Mr.X. Dr. Lobotomy (talk) 16:26, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

SR2 Mention Edit

I didn't want to add this to the trivia without a better source than my own ears, but I'm 99% sure that female Goth civilians in Saints Row 2 mention Nyte Blayde (or at least "Nightblade"). I encountered a male and female goth playing paper-rock-scissors near the creepy water tower in Athos Bay today and tried to trigger an idle pose near them. While I was waiting I thought the female mentioned Nyte Blayde, so I hung around a while longer for her to repeat it and I'm almost certain that she said it. It sounded like she was role-playing facing him in battle or something. Are the internal sound files labeled well enough that the clip could be found for proof? Miracle Max (talk) 03:09, May 19, 2015 (UTC)

They aren't, but I know I've found some of the Goth civilian voices already, so I'll listen through them again and see if I can find it. -452 03:11, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
I've been hanging around the Mall and the Cemetery trying to trigger the dialogue again. The female goths wouldn't say it in passing, so I turned on the angry civilians cheat to see if it was a combat line but they didn't say it then either. So I returned to the spot near the creepy water tower (since that's the only spawn of that idle action that I know) so I could transcribe the exact line, figuring it must be specific to the paper-rock-scissors since only goths can play it. Unfortunately I've only had goth's playing that spawn once so far and they were both male so they didn't say it. Also I should note that I have Gentlemen of the Row installed, but I don't think I've ever heard anything about it inserting voice files.Miracle Max (talk) 04:12, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
