Rimmy Tim

Rimmy Tim, as seen in WWE 2K16

Rimmy Tim is an alias in Achievement Hunter lore created by Jeremy Dooley. This is not the first alias appearing in Let's Plays, for his seat's former occupant Ray, the two remaining Team Lads members Michael and Gavin, and Ryan have all created aliases of their own.

History Edit

Rimmy Tim was the name for his Zer0 character in Borderlands 2 - a build designed to hurt enemies at low health, and frequently killsteal, this became infamous among his friends, ever since then, any game that allowed you to set a custom character name, he had set it as Rimmy Tim - this was carried over when he was hired at Achievement Hunter.[1]

    • Jeremy's pre-biker Rimmy Tim outfit (most likely Armored Rim) included a purple jacket, which at the end of the first Bikers DLC Let's Play in GTA V Jeremy dubbed the "Rimmy jacket" and downed a drink as a final tribute to it (judged by saying "may it rest in peace" like it was a deceased loved one).
      • This pre-biker outfit is considered to be the original Rimmy Tim outfit, as stated by Jeremy after winning the fourth Cunning Stunts episode's playlist (the winner of the one in the previous episode, Ryan, and Gavin both sat out number four with Mica and Jeremy's fellow RTX 2014 hire Matt participating instead. (Jeremy would subsequently win the Game Attack playlist, but in a preceding episode guest stars Etika and Lannan changed Jeremy's character's outfit).
    • In accordance to this, Rimmy Tim (according to Jeremy) only eats grapes and oranges. This is stated during the finale of the Prison Break.
  • Jeremy had been contemplating dying the sides of his hair orange to go along with a purple top in reference to the Rimmy Tim colors, and so from July 10 to August 2, 2017 Jeremy's hair was "rimmified" a bright purple and orange color scheme. It is assumed this dye job went awry at some point, which led to Jeremy shaving his head bald.
    • The dyed top of his hair didn't happen until after marrying Kat, as its remaining its original color was a stipulation for the wedding to go ahead.
  • Rimmy Tim made an appearance at the RTX Sydney Off Topic panel (#63, "Myriad of F*ckups), where Jeremy sat among the audience in full Rimmy gear until after the podcast started. It was here that he ultimately revealed that Jeremy Dooley is a Rimmy Tim fan and cosplayer.
  • It was discovered by Gavin in Let's Play Minecraft episode 247 that Jeremy's name could possibly be misspelled "Jerimmy".
  • Days before the recording of "Achievement Hunter the Musical" Jeremy accidentally left the house dressed as Rimmy Tim. Kat, who was watching their front door camera at the time reacted by texting Jeremy simply stating: "OOF".
  • Alternate Rimmy Tims, all linked to Jeremy, include:
    • a custom character in WWE 2K16, along with an 'evolved' variant.
    • Jeremy's profile in The Ship (4-for-4 in three videos, one of them How To: The Ship (two games)).
    • Jeremy in the second game of Let's Plat Fibbage 2 (having been the only non-Gavin of game one likely due to joining that lobby before the 'joke' started)
