* While doing [[AlexDay Alex Reads Twilight]], Alex repeatedly insisted he would not be doing the rest of the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series. This spawned a host of imitators that picked up with the second book in the series, ''NewMoon'', copying his general man-in-front-of-a-camera-summarises-and-snarkes-about-a-book style.

* [[BenDrowned Ben Drowned]]. It is the most famous gaming [[CreepyPasta Creepy Pasta]] that was filled with horror, great effects, and a great story. It was so popular, that we got many other gaming horror stories like [[SonicExe Sonic.exe]], Megaman's Ladder, I Hate You, and many more stories that don't even come close to capturing the atmosphere nor the creep factor that Ben Drowned had. Blank cartridges or discs with handwritten titles on them (which were free, of course. Even at brick and mortar stores.), friends who mysteriously disappeared in the context of the story, spooky save file shenanigans, and simplistic romhack footage on YouTube are some of the elements that label them as derivative.

** It is often cited that the ongoing storylines of these shows are what inspired MovieBob to do the same with The Game Overthinker.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': So relentlessly, cheerfully {{lampshaded}} that he seems to have escaped the wrath of even AVGN's fervent fanbase. (As pointed out above, AVGN even subscribes to his Website/YouTube account.)

* Stories based on the TheSlenderManMythos have become increasingly popular due to the success of Blog/JustAnotherFool (blog) and WebVideo/MarbleHornets (video series). Some recent cases have abandoned the idea of the characters going in blind and actually mention the existing blogs, with the protagonists assuming ([[RealAfterAll wrongly]]) that they're just an urban legend.

* Reviews were commonplace, but WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic started the trend of [[PlayedForLaughs funny ones.]] They have since achieved online notoriety and several others attempting a style similar to them (i.e. that of a foul-mouthed and pissed off reviewer of old crappy games and/or films). It's worth noting that the Angry Video Game Nerd himself was far from being the first to do this. {{Seanbaby}} had done this years before (and was likely an inspiration), and he may not have been the first himself.

** Actually to be fair, the joke also applies to how many people were literally just titling their video "Abridged series episode ''x''" and weren't trying to be Littlekuriboh, but were just being bait-and-switch trolls.

* ''AMVHell''. Though the format likely started with WesternAnimation/RobotChicken, it was AMV Hell that defined it as a Youtube staple and fan work in general, with notable entries like ''Machinima/TheGModIdiotBox'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic PONIES:]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tjb14VoWjg The Anthology]]''.

* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' has had many knockoffs. The creator has even done voices for some of them, as well as [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] it in his own series, by turning the "Multiply" spell card (which makes copies of Kuriboh) into "LittleKuriboh Impersonators". Yami activates it in his duel against Pegasus.
