* FailedASpotCheck: ''Yes''. The comments are quick to point out things that he was looking for but missed. The most frequent case is missing the Key in {{Spelunky}}, even if it's directly on screen.

* DiscreditedMeme: When a running joke becomes overused it is commonly dropped by the NLSS crew to avoid getting stale. A couple of big examples include the "Donkeh!" meme that started getting less popular around the time the ''other'' viral Franchise/{{Shrek}} video become popular, and "[[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac Rebirth]] is cancelled", which started getting on the nerves of other Twitch streamers as the joke spread leading NL to abandon it.

* EpicFail: In episode 18 of his X-COM Let's Play, [[spoiler: he tries to wait another day to do the London terror mission to get his heavy, which results in him completely losing the United Kingdom. Shortly afterward, he fails an interceptor mission.]] ** During his run on the Ord Mantell level of ''ShadowsOfTheEmpire'', he almost referred to his battle with IG-88 as this since the assassin droid had him on the ropes for a good portion of the fight. ** During [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMJXFAEbBuw one of his Spelunky daily challenge runs]], he collected the damsel, to sacrifice to Kali below for the Kapala. [[spoiler: He ends up dropping just enough to do fall damage, landed on the altar and sacrificed himself. This ended the run (which was going well) prematurely and daily challenges can only be done once.]] ** During his [[http://youtu.be/FUKIWFfU94U?t=12m50s multiplayer play-through of Crusader Kings II]] with Mathas and Arumba, he and Arumba had been in a war with northern Africa and had just beaten back an enormous 25,000-strong army and got to 100% War Score. [[spoiler: Then Northernlion accidentally surrenders instead of enforcing demands and puts his country 500 gold in debt and doesn't capture Tangier as he planned.]] In the same episode (literally a minute and a half later), he royally screws up his succession line (which can't be changed back) and [[spoiler: puts Arumba as his next heir for over half of his land.]] A few episodes later his next ruler [[spoiler: dies prematurely, putting an 11-year old girl in charge of his land.]] Needless to say, Arumba and Mathas will not let him forget him single-handedly destroying his empire in 5 minutes.

** Happens on several of his ''The Binding of Isaac'' runs where a game that seemed to be a certain win turned into a catastrophic victory because of a blatant mistake such as forgetting to pick up a Full Health pill just before entering an Isaac boss fight with low health. He lampshades it every time.

* NintendoHard: He's a big fan of these kind of games, and he's actually quite competent at them. (despite what some of [[UnpleasableFanbase the commenters]] might say) He's hardcore enough to unlock [[VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy The Kid]] in ''Super VideoGame/MeatBoy'' and all the {{No Damage Run}}s achievements in ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac''.

* InsaneTrollLogic: His let's play of ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has a lot of stream of consciousness where this occurs. -->''(aims at Chem Adict's head point blank, with a shotgun, and misses)'' '''Northernlion:''' "You are the True God. You may live. I'm still claiming your bed for like 20 hours though."

* LongRunner: His let's play of ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' lasted for ''980 videos!'' He continually changes the aims of the videos throughout the series to keep it interesting - after achieving Golden God, the 100% achievement in the original game, he started playing runs with specific conditions to playing, then moved on to the ''Wrath of the Lamb'' DLC when that was released, eventually 100%ing that too, then moving onto Custom Challenge Runs with Cheat Engine and later [=SpiderMod=], and then eventually the ''Community Remix'' mod before the series came to an end... only to restart with the game's UpdatedRerelease, ''The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth'' the next day. The Rebirth series follows the long-running tradition, with over 700 episodes not even a year after the game's release.

All together, Ryan's put out nearly 2000 Isaac videos.

When ''Rebirth'' came out, Edmund sent the two a seed and they did it again, though while it didn't end up as hilariously overpowered as the first one, they were able to share their thoughts on the game.
