** For better or worse, LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} is really loud. But even he started out this way, relatively speaking. Compare his original Amnesia LP to his recent Mario Maker videos.

* ''LetsPlay/{{Patterrz}}'''s earlier ''Franchise/{{Pokémon}}'' playthroughs are weird to watch now, since he is overall much slower and calmer. It wasn't until his Emerald Eliminationlocke that he began to be much more upbeat during the entire run and talked louder.

* The first year of ''GameGrumps'' consisted solely of Arin playing games with Jon. Barry and Suzy were often mentioned but [[TheGhost never seen]]. The spin off series like ''SteamTrain'', ''TableFlip'', and ''Grumpcade'' didn't exist. Danny, Ross, Kevin, and reoccurring guests like {{Markiplier}} and ProJared weren't in the original series either. It was after Jon left the show in 2013 when new members and shows were being introduced.

* LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}, like many [=LPers=], was rather quiet in his earlier videos in comparison to his NoIndoorVoice LargeHam style he adopted in later ones. He's also far less informative in his earlier work, to the point where he didn't even one hundred percent a few of his earliest [=LPs=], as opposed to how he always goes for one hundred percent in his later [=LPs=], as well as showing off everything that possibly ''could'' be shown off in them. His ''Paper Mario'' playthrough assumed that viewers were familiar with the rest of the ''Paper Mario'' series, starkly contrasting the Chugga that keeps future installments' events secret and takes care to avoid spoiling '''anything'''. Also, his trademark puns he's (in)famous for are also almost completely absent in his earliest works, where he chose to reference WebAnimation/YouTubePoop [[MemeticMutation memes]] more often than anything else. Furthermore, he was slightly more open to heavier swearing, which could surprise anyone used to his current GoshDarnItToHeck tendencies upon hearing him drop an f-bomb in his ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' & ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' Lets Plays and his AprilFoolsDay ''VideoGameMegaMan2'' one-off.
** On the topic of that last part, Chugga's earlier years featured a rather notable amount of miscellaneous videos, with one of them being the first video he uploaded on his channel. His "Fifty Facts" video was removed after some of the eponymous facts became outdated and most of his ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Pokémon Platinum]]'' videos were removed because he was disappointed with their quality (they were recorded on a camcorder), but most are still up on his channel, buried between his earlier Let's Plays.

** Also, when his channel opened in 2011, he disguised his voice slightly in an attempt reinvent his identity. Over time however, his old fans realised who it was, so he reverted to his original voice.

** ''Let's Play Minecraft's'' EarlyInstallmentWeirdness is the series' first ten episodes. At the beginning, only Creator/GavinFree knew how to play Minecraft and would constantly {{troll}} the other AH members. The Tower of Pimps was a creation of that trolling before it became a MacGuffin for the series. Achievement City was [[spoiler:a troll attempt on Jack Patillo by Geoff Ramsey and Gavin]] before it became their starting hub. They wouldn't get their trademark skins until episode 10, when the events and the Tower of Pimps became commonplace. Jack, Geoff, Gavin and Creator/MichaelJones are the only four members still around - Creator/RayNarvaezJr was also one of the originals, but he left in early 2015, Caleb Denaour was the group's SixthRanger for the early days until a cheating incident lead him to being pushed out and replaced with Ryan Haywood.
** Like with ''Minecraft'', ''Let's Play Grand Theft Auto's'' EIW is within its first few episodes. Most of those were both Things to Do In and just screwing around in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV''. It wasn't until they started doing "Cops n' Crooks" that things would begin to go into the "Let's check out the game modes on this thing", also, they only stayed on ''GTA IV'' for a few months, essentially waiting for ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' to come out.

* Certain Let's Plays can change format, pacing, and even tone. Take, for example, seiferguy's LP of ''ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink''. The stark contrast between the [[http://lparchive.org/Legend-of-Zelda-The-Adventure-of-Link/Update%2001/ first]] and [[http://lparchive.org/Legend-of-Zelda-The-Adventure-of-Link/Update%2018/ last]] chapters must be seen to be believed.

** The first two or so seasons of their machinima series also plays up their routines (Pat as the angry, abusive one and Matt as the dumb, childish, goofish one) far more. They would also feign ignorance on numerous subjects, the most obvious examples being in their MarvelVsCapcom3 video. It's jarring to watch their full-lengthed LP's and later Machinima episodes, where they act far more naturally and display a thorough knowledge of video games and the industry, then go back to their ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' episode and watch Matt obliviously and ignorantly dismissing the game as bad for trivial reasons and Pat going into sputtering rages over each and everything he does.
