* During his rant on ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Fifth Edition'', he brings up the rules regarding a Death Saving Throw and brings up a possible reason for it: To make the game go faster. Keep in mind that he also brings up the process of the DST, in which you have to make a Saving Roll three times and ensure you don't fail either when you botch your roll or when the enemy hits you. What does Spoony do? Get the core rulebook from the very first edition and reads out ''its'' rule towards dropping to 0 hit points. "When a character reaches zero hit points, the character is slain." Afterwards, he instantly slams the book shut, drops it to the ground, and simply say "How's that for fast, motherfucker?" with a smug grin on his face. Even if you liked Fifth Edition, you gotta admit that the way he does it is simply badass.

** It gets even better when you consider that when he spoke to the GM about the issue, the GM almost comes off like he's blaming Spoony for what happened to his character.

* From [=ConBravo=] 2012 - D20 Live:
** In [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2012/08/26/conbravo-2012-d20-live/ Part 1]], the recounting of "The Greatest Swordsman in the World." A single boast by Tandem the Spoony pisses off the wrong guy, a dedicated sword specialist, who felt his honour was sullied. He challenges Tandem to a duel to first blood - he botches, losing his sword, as Tandem gets a crit. He concedes, but follows Tandem around, asserting his boast around powerful fighters in hopes to get him killed. However, he wins every battle, even managing through luck and guile to defeat a gigantic, tree-wielding gladiator by crippling his primary arm and finishing him off with DeathByAThousandCuts. The gobsmacked specialist never bothered him again. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny.

On top of that, none of them were injured in the conflict and the DM had intended for them to retreat and come back with reinforcements.

** The battle between Invisible Jason (an [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja Assamite]]) and the Justicar of Phoenix (''the'' "[[BadAss BAD space ASS]]" [[ProudWarriorRace Gangrel]] of the city). Spoony likens the battle to [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Duel of the Fates]], and describes in detail the Justicar's raw power and Jason's ninja-like capabilities. The real kicker? Invisible Jason didn't minmax his character... and he was '''winning'''!

** Best part to me is the set-up to explain everything (what LARP is, what this particular game is, etc) takes up more of the video, but the payoff and Spoony's crazed, gleeful expression is ''glorious''.
** For me, it was Spoony playing his game far more fair than those who forced him into Lancea Sanctum. He was open to the ST about his bomb, rolls and all. He also used an obvious flaw in the elysium security to get his plan to work. That is true cleverness.
