To a lesser extent, he seems to have this somewhat with the UltimateMarvel universe with its superhero characters generally not being very likable, though in that case he says he simply doesn't like the UltimateMarvel universe but doesn't say it's bad.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy:[[invoked]] Has ** This trope is one of his biggest criticisms of "current" comics. He feels that the increased amounts of DarkerAndEdgier content (villains being more evil, heroes being more anti-heroic) is to the medium's detriment. In addition he takes issue with the Silent Hill belief that "[[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids darker equals more mature]]," feeling that a comics in spades, whose unlikable characters to Linkara flat-out not giving a shit as to what happens in the story.

He even admits that this somewhat with the UltimateMarvel universe with its superhero characters generally not being very likable, though in that case is why he says he simply doesn't like the UltimateMarvel universe but doesn't say it's bad.review modern comics as much, as while other decades have wide varieties of bad, his criticisms for current books would just end up with him repeating himself and making his own show hard to care about.

Useful Notes are not tropes.
* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: At times, his Minnesota accent can be particularly notable, especially in the way he pronounces "room" as "rum". He even comments that he's found himself pronouncing it "room" more often, especially after the Top 15 Screw-ups video. ** He uses a stereotypical California SurferDude accent for 90's Kid. ** Harvey Finevoice has a touch of a New York [[TheMafia Mafioso]] accent, circa 1955.

Dude Not Funny is not a fan reaction trope. It only applies if characters in a story react to things that happen in the same story.
* DudeNotFunny: Several in-universe examples. ** He points out that, in Action Comics #593, Superman and Big Barda are essentially raping each other, [[RapeAsDrama which is a terrible plot point]]. ** In the [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/linkara/at4w/9479-countdown2 Countdown Part 2 review]], from 90s kid, who can usually be counted on to defend the decade's excesses. --> '''90s Kid:''' DUUUDE, I...wait, did...did you just vaporize a pregnant chick? Dude, that's not cool man. ** Another example is his review of [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mightily Murdered Power Ringers]], which mostly consists of him lambasting the comic for how terrible its "jokes" are, and how inconsiderate it was to the audience, considering the entire comic is really just Zedd murdering the [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Ringers]] and poorly-writen attempts at making fun of the series. [[BerserkButton Needless to say, as a ''Power Rangers'' and comic fan, Linkara condemned the comic]]. ** The autism joke in ''Deadpool Bi-Annual #1''. Linkara points out that it was unnecessary to even add autism to the joke and that doing so actually makes it fall flat instead of being kind of funny.

** He also thinks the Superman in ''SupermanAtEarthsEnd'' ''ComicBook/SupermanAtEarthsEnd'' is some random hobo who found Superman's outfit and names him Bearded Idiot.

* BerserkButton: He especially hates it when iconic, established characters get changed. ''[[InsistentTerminology Bearded Idiot]]: [[SupermanAtEarthsEnd At Earth's End]]'' was the first comic to ever actually be burnt on [=AT4W=], followed by ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain''. ComicBook/JLAActOfGod would have been burned had it not been for Linksano's interference. He also despises {{straw feminist}} because it does more to damage to feminism than the avowed chauvinists ever could. However, above it all is ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''. In his "Top 15 Comics I'll Never Review" video he explained that he would not review that comic because he hated it ''so much'' that he wants to forget it ever existed. He concluded his summary with "JoeQuesada... [[PunctuatedForEmphasis YOU! ARE! A! HACK!]]" [[spoiler:And during the 200th episode MilestoneCelebration, he actually reviewed it with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIteAJg5ubk all the anger]] he could deliver.]]

** One of his biggest complaints about some of the comics he reviews (including ''[[FanNickname Bearded Idiot:]]'' ''[[SupermanAtEarthsEnd At Earths End,]]'' ) authors fail to take advantage of this. In the aforementioned ''Bearded Idiot'' comic, he replies: --> '''Linkara:''' Wait a second. It's {{Superman}}... fighting [[CloningBlues twin clones]] of [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]]... in the ''future...'' This comic is starting to get ''awesome!'' (seconds later, after Bearded Idiot runs away) '''SCREW YOU, SUPER-SANTA!'''

** His most frequent and fruitful collaborations are with [[TheSpoonyOne Spoony]]: They have made four (five if you count their review with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic) full appearances together, physically in the same room and everything, and have even advanced storylines in each other's videos. [[MadScientist Dr. Insano]] was introduced in an WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall video as part of a [[PreviouslyOn parody sequence]], and the whole Mechakara saga began as the result of their first crossover, largely written by Spoony. Fandom tends to depict the two creators as HeterosexualLifePartners.

** He often gets other Internet celebrities' names wrong, like ''[[TheSpoonyExperiment The Forky Experiment]]'' and ''Film Brian''. In one video he mistakes [[spoiler:Dr. Insano]] for both Bennett the Sage and That Chick With The Goggles.
