* AbortedArc: In 2011, Linkara reviewed the first issue of Malibu's ''[[ComicBook/MalibuComicsStreetFighter Steet Fighter]]'' comic. He mentioned that he'd review the other two issues at a later date. Unlike other comics he reviews, however, the comics were not reviewed again on the show. As mentioned in his IDW ''My Little Pony'' comic review, some fans expressed disapointment in the review due to Linkara not being intimately familiar with the source material.

* BadassAdorable: Linkara gives Little Pedi, one of his pokemon in his, ''VideoGame/PokemonZetaAndOmicron'' LetsPlay this persona, do to her nickname sounding gangsta, complete with a fan image of her as biker [[GrievousBottleyHarm welding a broken bottle.]] Surprisingly, this turns out to be true in the game itself, after an Alakazam manages OneShots ''four out six'' of his team, but Little Pedi survives just long enough to turn the tables.

** ''JLA Act of God'' was absolutely rife with this, and Linkara continually calls out the writers on the hamfisted monologuing during his review.

** His most frequent and fruitful collaborations are with [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment 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.

** Has with the Silent Hill comics in spades, whose unlikable characters to Linkara flat-out not giving a shit as to what happens in the story. To a lesser extent, he seems to have this somewhat with the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe with its superhero characters generally not being very likable, though in that case he says he simply doesn't like the Ultimate Marvel universe but doesn't say it's bad.
** He also feels this way in regards to post OMD Spiderman.
** 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 belief that "[[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids darker equals more mature]]," feeling that a comics tone shouldn't be that big an indicator of quality. He even admits that this is why he doesn't 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.

** Harvey Finevoice also got more screentime during the December 2012 reviews.



* DeathIsCheap: Despite not liking characters getting killed in stories, he admits that for mainstream heroes death is no big deal when he brings up the death of the Human Torch in his Brain Drain review, and comments that he'll be dead for a year at most before coming back, and each member of the Fantastic Four has died at least once. However, he also points out how this trope does not always come into play, especially for non-superhero supporting characters, when discussing his rage over the death of Lian Harper in Cry For Justice.

** "Let's dig into [[ComicBook/JLAActOfGod Batman: Act of God #3 Starring Batman]]." This was done intentionally to deliver his point that JLA: Act of God was "one big love letter to Batman" by the writer.
** The review of ''[[ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder All-Star Batman & Robin]]'' #1 and #2 revealed that, among its other flaws, characters tended to repeat themselves. A lot. A lot a lot.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Frequently calls out Countdown to Final Crisis, Cry for Justice, and Ultimatum for this. Accuses the first of representing an attitude that killing characters is the best form of plot point.
* DrowningMySorrows: There's a running gag that reviews of ''Marville'' drive him to drink; when issue #3 comes around even ''hologram'' Linkara manages it.
