** And we find out just how prepared he was in "The Grinning Man": [[spoiler:He created a hologram of himself to do all three Silent Hill reviews (with the clue clearly visible the whole time, yet many viewers had probably forgotten about it by the time of TheReveal) and has the spirit of the girl inside the Magic Gun ready as the only one who can properly judge Whateley.]]
** Also from "The Grinning Man", "COME ON DOWN, KIDS!"

* TheReveal at the end of the ''Ultimate Power #4'' review, going into the beginning of the ''Delicious in Dungeon #1'' review: [[spoiler: The Entity is indeed still alive, but it's ''possessing Linkara'' and has been misleading him and everyone else! What's more, 90's Kid has known the truth all along and has teamed up with Lord Vyce out of sheer desperation/pragmatism, not because he's made a FaceHeelTurn!]]

* The opening of his Comic Book Ads episode: Douchey Mc Nitpick shows up and accuses him of ripping the idea off from the Nostalgia Critic's Commercials episodes... only for Linkara, who had been expecting Douchey, to blindside him by flat out stating he stole the idea and actually causing Douchey to shut up for a minute. Then when Douchey tries to rebound by saying Linkara is doing this without the Critic's permission, Linkara asks for it and Douchey does not accept it, Linkara calmly asked if Douchey has watched the show recently, which he hasn't and then gets Douchey with Comicron-1.

** Linkara doesn't just [[spoiler:talk the monster to death either; he first asks it [[AndThenWhat what it plans to do after it achieves its goal]], and continues to point out the pointlessness of its own existence, its quest, and the rather unimpressive ending to its goal which just keeps reiterating the question. This gets so bad, it sends The Entity into an existential crisis where it begins babbling to itself incoherently, unable to comprehend its own worthlessness despite being a god. This eventually gives Linkara the chance to ask The Entity what happens when a god like itself dies. Truly intrigued by the question, MissingNo explodes itself, releasing everything and everyone it had absorbed]].

** From Part 2, when the Fixer begins torturing a terrorist, Linkara puts the book aside, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness takes off his glasses]], and talks about his personal philosophy and why ''Film/{{Camelot}}'' is his favorite film of all, because it encouraged his philosophy of [[GoodFeelsGood goodness]], decency, compassion and [[CycleOfRevenge not always resorting to violence]]. And then he explains why he brings this up, because he hates ''Holy Terror'' more than ''any'' other book he's reviewed on AT4W, because it encourages the [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop exact opposite philosophy]]. It teaches that you should be paranoid, violent, brutal and intolerant of those who are different. This is perhaps the greatest TheReasonYouSuckSpeech he has ever given, and it is truly awesome to watch. Bonus points for pointing out that Miller's little [[BrokenAesop "aesop"]] in the book, to give into your own fear and paranoia when confronted by terrorism, is pretty much ''the exact definition'' of what terrorism is. More bonus points for transitioning seamlessly from giving a serious speech to his usual tone with the "This scene is really friggin' stupid" part.
** At the end of the review, he gives his copy of ''Holy Terror'' what it deserves and burns it, and prior to that, he breaks the absurdly large book in half over his knee, possibly in reference to Bane breaking Batman's back. Not to mention that as an advocate of free speech, Linkara does not deny Miller the right to publish ''Holy Terror'' and for people to buy the book if they so choose. However, as the book in Linkara's possession is technically his property, it gives him [[LoopholeAbuse every right to burn it if he so chooses as well.]]
** A minor example, but the theme song opening shows every single thumbnail picture used up to that point (with new ones for older episodes, ''just for that occasion'', which could also counts as a CMoA for MTC, his thumbnail artist), with his [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic kick-ass theme song]] playing as they're all shown.
** The end of "Holy Terror" has ContinuityPorn by having Linkara [[spoiler:use his new Megaforce morpher to change between all his outfits and props to battle Mirror Linkara from a Star Trek review ''years'' prior. Complete with the Magic Gun giving Mirrorkara's Magic Gun a noogie.]]
** To be specific, we have [[spoiler: his Yu-Gi-Oh Obelisk Blue set from ''GX'', his Patton gear from ''Kickassia'', his cosplay of Calem from Pokemon X/Y (and using Pyramid Head,) his Zeokara outfit, his travel gear from when he travelled the US around the time of the 200th episode, his Ensign Monroe suit (complete with "Combine Harvester", though it should be made clear that he's using just the suits, not the 'characters'), his old outfit and finally his new outfit]].
** Even without the blatant racism in the comic, he still finds that's horrible. Most of it consists of splash pages, or pages that have '''FAR''' too many panels on them, leading to the comic taking over half of its length just to get past the initial terrorist attacks because it wastes so much time with an unneeded scene of its lead characters chasing each other, and it doesn't even have any real plot until the last few pages. On top of the bad artwork, [[FlatCharacter bland]] characters, and a protagonist with no personality beyond what a violent [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who [[AxCrazy delights inflicting pain on others]] he is. Even without the overt racism and terrible message, the comic still has nothing redeemable about it.
* In his review of Sinnamon #1, he certainly gets an awesome moment on a meta-sense, where he discusses how his review of Sinnamon #11 was so far back that the show was undergoing EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, and how, in spite of also reviewing absolute horrors of comic books (''ComicBook/{{Marville}}'', ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice'', ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'', Creator/FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/HolyTerror'', etc.), he still stands by how Sinnamon #11 was as bad as when he first reviewed it.
