** [=DiscoGlacier=]: In a rare example of this trope being outside the creator's control, Vinny's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMuqyIiVZjU "Chinese GameBoy Bootlegs"]] video was frustrating and painful, and not for the [[SuckinessIsPainful expected reasons]]: there were tons of duplicates - both from [[FleetingDemographicRule past videos]] and [[ViewersAreGoldfish even within the same video]] - that classified themselves as "new games" based on title changes and asset swaps. The new content that was featured was boring to watch, simply being subpar platformers, [=RPG=]s; etc. rather than [[CrossesTheLineTwice line-crossing]] [[SoBadItsGood trainwrecks]] bootleg games are known to be. The fact that these games stole assets from the hottest licenses of TheNineties and the early part of the TurnOfTheMillennium [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece made them age that much worse]], and it seems like Vinny didn't pick up on this correlation. The only good thing to come of this episode was that it introduced the somewhat fascinating ''VideoGame/ShiKongXingShou''... which Vinny wasn't even able to play past the title screen. Joel's comment accurately sums up this video for both Vinny and the audience:

By the end, it seemed like Vinny was genuinely annoyed by the games he was obligated to showcase, and even hoped that they ''wouldn't'' work on startup; the sentiment was all too relatable.

And in response, Ray can be heard fuming over this. And just to twist the knife one last time, Ryan makes it to the end of the course for a second time, but before he can mine the tower, Michael makes it right behind him, and Ryan, in response, breaks the block Michael was standing on, sending him plummeting to his death, which is also against the rules (In every episode, you're disallowed from destroying the terrain unless otherwise noted) and when the others realize what he's done, Gavin is the very first one to get on Ryan about cheating, making him not only a cheater, but a massive hypocrite on top of that. Geoff also comes across as hypocritical, seeing as he banned Caleb from Let's Plays for cheating in an earlier episode, but here, he goes on to add insult to injury as well by telling everyone not to cheat anymore, while completely ignoring Gavin. This entire episode just featured all the Achievement Hunters at their most mean-spirited, and if it weren't for the ending of the episode being the most perfect ending possible (Gavin made it to the end completely legitimately, fought off Ray who also made it to the end, mined the tower, but placed it on Ray's pedestal, giving Ray the final point needed to win the game), I'd have considered this episode to be unwatchable.

* Tropers/JosephCBadass: Achievement Hunter has a number of such moments, but the defining moment has to be the 37th episode of their Let's Play Minecraft series, "Clouds." The objective of the game is to platform a long series of small blocks stationed high in the air, make it to the end of the course, mine the Tower Of Pimps, descend to the ground, and erect it by your pedestal, all while in 3rd person mode. To win the episode, one of the guys has to do this twice. [[TheAce Ray]] ends up doing this twice, but on his second time making it to the end of the course, we suddenly get live footage of the office, where we see Ray playing the game. In the background, Gavin gets up from his seat, walks up to Ray, and puts his hand on Ray's controller to make him walk off the course and die, prolonging the game. I choose this as my dethroning moment because Gavin ''very'' blatantly cheated by messing with Ray's controller. Now, I understand that if Ray won there, the episode would've been too short to be a Let's Play (and later in the series, this happens again to Ray), but cheating in an attempt to prolong the episode just isn't right. What makes this moment even worse is how the others will occasionally make fun of Ray over this,
-->'''Michael:''' Ray, can you believe the frustration I'm feeling? (later) Ray, don't be such a fucking poor sport.

* {{Tropers/Pgj1997}}: While I think Creator/EmperorLemon's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFGqhEVr7lk Meme Theory on Behind the Meme]] was well-constructed, one thing that gets to me is how he views "normies". Basically, [[ItsPopularNowItSucks if you like anything from mainstream media, you're a normie, and shouldn't be taken seriously]]. This vague definition is what bothers me. Not only is this downright childish to base a person off what they like and don't like, but it just comes off as condescending. Might I remind everyone, this guy is well known for making WebAnimation/{{YouTube Poop}}s of Creator/{{Pixar}} movies, and even created an [[WebVideo/TheFryingNemoSaga entire tetralogy]] based on ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', which is also mainstream media. I've seen many people on the internet who act like this, but this ranks near the top. Flat out implying "You like X, and it's mainstream, therefore, you're a normie, and I hate you" just makes him come off as an asshole who can't respect other people's opinions.

* {{Tropers/heartauthor}}: Normally, I find WebOriginal/DoubleToasted a fun watch on YouTube; however, if there's one commentator on there I can't stand, it's [[TheScrappy Danielle]]. She's made a lot of dumb comments on various videos, but the worst was when Korey was talking about the controversy about {{Music/Kesha}} being trapped in a contract with a manager whom she claims abused her. In response to this, Danielle suggested that people who are in this position should ''[[InsaneTrollLogic befriend their rapist]]''. Yeah, [[SarcasmMode I'm sure plenty of abuse victims would be completely on board with that idea]]. Apparently Danielle is now making an effort to watch what she says on-camera, but it's too late for me; I can't bear to watch any videos with her in it because of the asinine comments she's made.

* Tropers/CabbitGirlEmi: Once in a while, I have been watching these videos in the past several months, and there were ups and downs. I'm not really a big fan of the "Bowser Junior's Playtime" series, but it tends to be over-the-top with otherwise serious subject matters. But then came "Playtime 5", which one goes too far by having [[spoiler:Junior put Cody/Sally's infant daughter Phoebe in the microwave]]. While Jeffy was in this, he couldn't save this one because abusing babies is never funny, ever. And for irony's sake, I found some of Jeffy's bad parenting in "The Baby Project" funny considering that the babies weren't sentient like Phoebe was supposed to be.
