* 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.

* While doing AlexReadsTwilight, 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.

* WebVideo/CinemaSins has seen ''dozens'' of imitators on YouTube, from single videos to long-running channels reviewing different kinds of visual media. Two of the earliest examples---WebVideo/GameCareNetwork and WebVideo/{{Dartigan}}, both video game reviewers---now have their own pages.

* In that vein, ''Website/TheAgonyBooth'' re-tailored their site in the early tens to emulate Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, supplementing their old text reviews with "prop comic" reviewers and videos. Most of these were received with lukewarm responses at best. The majority of the new critics were [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony Experiment]] knock-offs who used to advertise on his forum and on YouTube before being picked up. A similar website, Reviewtopia, was lambasted for trying to copy the success of TGWTG, and most of those critics were absorbed into the TGWTG mothership within a few months. The "success" of WebVideo/TheBlockbusterBuster and Oancitizen came about because of this.
