* BitingTheHandHumor: In the ''Radio/WelcomeToNightVale'' parody, he makes some cracks about CA being a magnet for drama, and that the Head Office (Mike and Rob) wants you to know BlatantLies like Critic was never dead, there was never a Demo Reel (aside from Brad's parody), and there's never been a Blistered Thumbs or a Nostalgia Chick.

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Linkara notes how easily Hitler (who happened to be the Devil in disguise) goes down to the Blue Beetle, falling unconscious after one punch.

** Given his utter joy whenever he's reviewed a comic featuring CaptainAmerica in it, it's quite clear that Linkara's a fan of the Captain. Look no further than his ''Secret Origins Month'' review of Captain America Comics #1 for proof.

*** This also happened to Linkara himself. While his argument against "the same God with different words" sounds legitimate in context of various religions (say Buddhism and Christianity), it is somewhat problematic in explanation of Baha'i (whose belief has elements of InterfaithSmoothie) and Abrahamic Religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam sharing the similar god but with different philosophies).

** Seeing Troll naked in ''Youngblood'' #7 in the shower sends Linkara into a screaming SanitySlippage. He even holds up an invisible copy of the comic and groans, "I still see it!"

* ChristmasEpisode: In 2009, he did one on the {{Youngblood}} Extreme Super Christmas Special, complete with the ghosts from Literature/AChristmasCarol showing up and trying to teach him the meaning of Christmas, only to be thrown out because he already loves Christmas. In 2010 he started expanding the Christmas theme to multiple episodes in December.

* DesignatedHero: The phrase "Our hero(es), ladies and gentlemen!" means he is pointing out instances of this and/or HeroBall. Linkara points out that Creator/RobLiefeld's characters in general have almost nothing heroic about them, which he finds particularly frustrating, since Liefeld specifically described Youngblood as heroic characters that can be related to and believed in as heroes.

** In the ''ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}'' #8 review, he brings out the "Because Poor Literacy is Kewl" joke for a character named Psilence, only to instead note that it's actually not a bad pun.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy:[[invoked]] 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 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* 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.
