* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: [[invoked]] During the ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' LP, Diabetus and slowbeef quickly get irritated with Adam's [[WallOfText constant briefings.]]
--> '''Diabetus:''' (after one particularly bad example) You patronizing little ass! I know where to go! Shut up!

* CouchGag: Every video of his ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy 2'' LP begins with a "space/face" pun due to every video opening on said game's {{Faceship}}. [[LamePunReaction His guests are usually not very impressed.]]

* ShoutOut: His name refers to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFIsoq63lwo Wilford Brimley's odd pronunciation of "diabetes"]].
** Actually, he's recalled a story on Retsutalk where he and theatre friends joke about "if Dionysus had a diabetic brother," and stated that's where the name started.
** The playlist for his ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' let's play is called [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy The Hitchhiker's Guide to Super Mario Galaxy 2]], and the LP itself is JustForFun/FortyTwo videos long.

* OldShame: His ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' videos; he says that he doesn't think the videos have held up well at all over the years.

Added DiffLines:

* FireForgedFriends: Inverted with the ''Parallel Worlds'' LP. As the LP goes on, Zomodok and Diabetus both get more antagonistic with each other. It's PlayedForLaughs, but still.


Added DiffLines:

* VitriolicBestBuds: Zomodok and Diabetus in the ''Parallel Worlds'' LP. Amusingly, it didn't start that way as they were both fairly amiable with each other at the LP's beginning, with the difficulty of the hack slowly driving a stake between them.

Diabetus is a Let's Player -- one of the first, in fact, originating from Website/SomethingAwful. He's known for his ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' Let's Plays, which turned into a kind of motif for him, as well as a [[MemeticMutation memetic]] run of ''VideoGame/CaptainNovolin''. He hails from [[DeepSouth Alabama]] (which he [[SelfDeprecation often makes jokes about it]]), is good friends with LetsPlay/{{slowbeef}}, and has a pretty laid-back personality.

* AncientGrome: In the Metroid Fusion LP, Diabetus mistakenly calls the Greek letters Alpha, Gamma, Zeta, and Omega as being part of the Latin alphabet.
* {{Angrish}}: During one of the cutbacks to his rematch with [[ThatOneBoss Yakuza]] in MetroidFusion.

* ChirpingCrickets: Spliced in by Diabetus as reaction to a particularly bad joke told by Slowbeef in the ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' LP.
* ContinuityNod: [=MeccaPrime=] had previously done a 0% run of ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' alongside Diabetus' LP of the game. Later, when Mecca did a 100% run LP of the game, Diabetus guest-hosted... for the video which featured the Yakuza fight, complete with a black-and-white cutaway of Diabetus' [[{{Angrish}} gibberish-filled]] rematch from his own LP.

* ForcedMeme: Betus keeps trying to make "cazh" (short for "casual") a thing, much to [[LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} Slowbeef's]] annoyance.
* HeroicBSOD: Done rather literally in the ''Metroid Fusion'' LP. After Diabetus forgets to save after defeating [[ThatOneBoss Yakuza]] and gets sent back before the boss fight, the video immedately cuts to a test pattern and ends.
