* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: He has admitted to this being one of his weaknesses while writing. He noted that in the ''Ninja Gaiden'' review, he had to use a thesaurus because he had overused the word "impossible" in the original script. The trope has been invoked a couple of episodes before he managed to catch it, such as in the ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' review:

** He also has a habit of saying "head decapitation," as if there's any other kind of decapitation.

* RedOniBlueOni: Usually Blue to Mike's Red. Even while they're acting, Mike's hyperactive characters make even the nerd look reserved.

* GodNeverSaidThat: His refusal to watch ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' had nothing to do with the female cast[[labelnote:*]]his only mention of the female cast was pointing out how people referred to the movie as "the female Ghostbusters" due to being titled "Ghostbusters" just like the original film, and having little else to differentiate it[[/labelnote]], and was more due to how it calls itself "Ghostbusters" but doesn't build on the established lore of the franchise, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen despite having gotten the three surviving original Ghostbusters to appear in the movie]]. He even outright states that it may end up being a ''good'' movie in its own right.



* MeanCharacterNiceActor: His portrayal as [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd the nerd]] couldn't be farther from how he is in real life.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: His portrayal as [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd the nerd]] couldn't be farther from how he is in real life. He doesn't walk around shouting obscenities and screaming at the top of his lungs like The Angry Video Game Nerd does, and often makes it clear that the Nerd is simply a character he plays.


Added DiffLines:

* OneOfUs: Obviously, since he ''IS'' AVGN.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: Known for the directing variant with making gory horror movies and gross out comedies. However, he made a short psychological mystery film called "The Jersey Odysseys: Legend of the Blue Hole" which doesn't include any gore or gross out stuff.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** James intended the Angry Nintendo Nerd to be a trilogy series of videos he only made for his friends. [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd Then YouTube entered his life!]] As [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGFqdCeyBS4 one of the podcasts]] reveals, James was highly reluctant to make another AVGN video outside of original trilogy, and it took some persuasion from Mike to convince him that it's an idea worth trying.
** James apparently intended the Angry Video Game Nerd to have a spin off series called the Angry Movie Nerd, where he would cover bad movies, beginning with the ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIII''. Despite being one of his most memorable videos, ranting about movie sequels in an earlier episode, and even implying to talk about the Friday the 13th movies in the game review, this spin off never happened. Instead, he's only done movie reviews as himself since.
** He, at some early point, planned on doing an AVGN episode focusing on the Super Mario Bros. movie (or he planned on it being an entry for the abandoned Angry Movie Nerd series). However, after Nostalgia Critic reviewed it, he felt he couldn't really add much to it with his own review so he held off. He eventually reviewed the film as himself for the film's 20th anniversary.
** {{Invoked|Trope}} in his video on why he would not watch ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' over the decision to make the movie a complete ContinuityReboot, particularly as they were able to get many members of the original cast to appear in the movie...but just as [[TheCameo random characters]] rather than reprising their original roles.

* {{Pun}}: His "Top 15 Movies Where People FUCKING Burn to Death" is full of fire-based puns, such as "That really burns me up", "Don't get too hot to trot", "You gotta strike while the iron is hot", "Uh-oh, this chick is TOAST!", "NOW we're cookin' with gas", "It's one hell of a hot mess!" Not only that, but the video uses samples from a bunch of songs that have the word "fire" or "burn" in them.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Parodied. As the Bullshit man, he mentioned that people complained about having to say "Happy Holidays" out of respect for other beliefs when they ''insist'' on saying "Merry Christmas." So he coined a new term called '''HAPPY SHUT THE FUCK UP!''' and has proceeded to use this in some of his Christmas specials, including the AVGN Winter Games, and even as himself at the end of his TMNT Christmas review.

* SirSwearsaLot: Surprisingly averted in most of his films (exceptions include "Kill for Thrill" and obviously "Film/AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie"). The most you'll here is the occasional "hell" or "shit".
