* AwesomeMcCoolname: During the review of [[WorldOfWarcraftComic World Of Warcraft 2-3]], he lampshades how ridiculous the names sound and then jokingly states he is going to change his name to "Awesome [=McBadass=] Powerfist".

Added DiffLines:

** The title cards have a few characters who reappear multiple times even outside of context. Most prominent is Tucker!Thing, originating from the Starstream review, who appears frequently in title cards since its debut in 2012.

** Linkara brings this up repeatedly during his review of Frank Miller's "Holy Terror", as there are multiple instances of objects falling sideways out of people's hands or even out of their mouths on the cover. Cue the MST3K clip to illustrate just how ridiculous this is.

* AscendedExtra: Pollo the Robot started out as a BrickJoke in his Amazons Attack review to illustrate that "not even robots can handle" the bad comic. However, since then, Pollo has become a ''very'' important character on ''Atop the Fourth Wall'', more so even than Burton himself on the ''Experiment''. He appears to have taken on the on-screen role of Linkara's producer. The prop itself was a puppet made for the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] fan-vid he made in high school and was used as Lewis even said in his "Origins" VLOG that he was concerned that people would see it as derivative of Spoony's Burton (indeed, many assume Pollo was created to be an Expy of Burton).

* 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 [[OneHitKill one shot]] ''four out six'' of his team, but Little Pedi survives just long enough to turn the tables.

* AllThereInTheManual: Linkara complains about this tendency in big crossover events and [[ComicBook/TheUltimates non-crossover events]]. He feels that, though there is nothing wrong with a big event having extra features in other comics, if they are a ''requirement'' for a full understanding of the event then they are not "extra" at all and, as such, should be included in the main title. It reaches its nadir in ''SilentHill Dead/Alive'', where the author neglected to put several important plot points and character motivations into the story itself, forcing readers to comb through the opening descriptions of what happened in each previous issue to have any hope of following the story...and then these sections were removed from the trade edition.

** Linkara gives rather a lengthy and awesome one at the end of his ''Silent Hill: Dead/Alive'' review (full version in the quotes page), in which he lists all the awesome things he has done, the enemies he has faced, and how he's ''much'' more stable than any SilentHill protagonist, so attempting to drive him to suicide with trickery is futile.

** One of the alternative endings to the Silent Hill review reveals [[spoiler:Bear]] to be one in style of the dog from SilentHill2.

** He also (essentially) said that there is nothing more awesome than Creator/BruceCampbell (Ash from The Evil Dead movies) laying the SmackDown on the ComicBook/MarvelZombies, except for Robo-bear vs. Cyber-gorilla! Where Neutro stacks up is anyone's guess.

* BiasSteamroller: Whenever a comic touches on subjects he's not fond of (such as politically incorrect humour, sexism or racism), he tends to launch into a tirade on it.

** Some people actually think Linkara made up that "It's magic. I don't have to explain it" phrase and meant it in all seriousness, not realizing that this is actually a shot at JoeQuesada's justification for ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''.

* BerserkButton: He especially hates it when iconic, established characters get changed. ''[[InsistentTerminology Bearded Idiot]]: [[ComicBook/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.]]
