[[folder: List of Shows]]
Whilst most members also do their own series', there are a few that will pop up frequently in the trope list. These are:

* '''Deadbeats Minecraft''' (or '''DBMC'''), the private Minecraft multiplayer series. Most of the Deadbeats were involved with this while it was running, as this is how the Deadbeats first started. It currently has two seasons.
* '''Feed The Beats''', a modded Minecraft multiplayer series. It is the result of Phil and Briguy's ''Feed The Beast'' and Spyke and Ross's ''Tekkit'' servers joining forces. At first it ran on the LetsPlay/{{Direwolf20}} modpack, then it moved to Unleashed. The most recent server is using its own modpack based on the Direwolf20 pack.
* '''Hyrule Hysteria''', a show hosted by Vidvisionify, Casey and Brian, wherein they play through the timeline detailed by the official ''Hyrule Historia'' book. Instead of the controller changing hands often, each game has a set host who will be playing it.
* '''Nate Against The Machine''', a traditional Let's Play channel run by Nate, commentating with a guest in most episodes. Before the Deadbeats Minecraft server, he also played games for Creator/TheLayabouts, and ran his own Nate Against SMP server for a while.
* The '''Sonic Trilogy of Pain''', a series hosted by Hinchy, aiming to play all the way through VideoGame/SonicHeroes, VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog and VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006. It started as a collaboration with Survival Mode, listed below, but became its own series once The Layabouts changed its focus.
* '''Survival Mode[=/=]Quick Attack''', two different shows by Jack Saint and Joe Pierce (of The Layabouts). '''Survival Mode''' was a long-form Let's Play show ("[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial except for the part that it's not]]") that played games that were NintendoHard or invoked "WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs". '''Quick Attack''', its counterpart, had one-off showings of different games and sometimes specials with a host of games centered around a specific theme.

* UnwinnableByMistake: During the "Pierce Family Treasure" quest, one of the riddles about [[spoiler: a chest containing iron and gold helmets, one "pointing" the way towards the next clue]] was accidentally made unsolvable when someone instinctively [[spoiler: collected the 'loot' inside]] without reading the clue first, leading the group to become stumped and eventually consult Joe for help after about ten/fifteen minutes as to which helmet was pointing which way.

** While building the Murderlator in Season 1, Phil's plummeting to his death was captured again and again and again...



* FallGuy: Phil essentially became the fall guy for a prank on Chronos's cathedral by himself, Brian and Simon (though he probably deserved it more for killing Chronos while AFK). It resulted in no less than THREE pranks on him at the same time (his spawn house being filled with sheep and dirt, Ross vandalising Dragonmoor island with "Phil sucks" in dirt and a GagPenis, and Chronos filling his Dragonmoor house entirely with glass, placing vines all over it, replacing the "s" in "Sucks" with "f" [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill and finally]] filling his wizard tower nearby with vines.

* FinalDeath: Occurs to Jack Saint in his permadeath series, Lacking Lives. Also joked about at the beginning of Season 2, after [=StupidlyClever=] accidentally kills Jack, ''[[UnfriendlyFire twice]]''.
* FiveFingerDiscount: [=StupidlyClever=] (buggy715 in-game at the time) was often talked about or heard going through Brian's chests in his house for (supposedly) food, when he was starting out. Even when Brian banned him from entering, he relied on him and Nate for food until he built his own house, making Brian ProperlyParanoid.

Added DiffLines:

* LeaveTheCameraRunning: The third episode of the Sonic Trilogy of Pain dedicates six whole minutes to Jack and Joe talking about the eponymous Games with Better Stories (than VideoGame/SonicHeroes) while Hinchy is trying to end the episode, who eventually interrupts them with his signoff and finally [[SmashToBlack smashes to black]] when Joe thinks of yet another game.


Added DiffLines:

* MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: "What am I even DOING?!", the VideoGame/RabbidsGoHome Quick Attack episode featuring Hinchy. It's played from somewhere in the middle of the game and the commentary oscillates between Joe's reactions to what's happening on-screen, nonsense banter and remarks about the game itself (which also provides some WTF moments of its own).
* PerverseSexualLust: The second episode of the Sonic Trilogy of Pain has Saint bring up the question of whether the group would have sex with Rouge the Bat "just to say you did it". Hinchy strongly rejects the idea - among other reasons, because Sonic franchise characters only have "one eye".

* TheQuest: The Pierce Family Treasure. Every person had a book with a hint to one of the puzzles on the way to the treasure, and most of the server gathered to take part. Zach had a pig steed that died multiple times, and Simon had [[TheBlankFace no face]].

* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: Eyesoria, the village inside Season 1's spawn town, which features buildings made out of unorthodox blocks. For example, a house made out of ''trees''. Or one made out of chests. Or one made out of ''[[SerialEscalation anything on the hotbar]]''.

** And when Brian set out to build a public melon farm when [[WizardNeedsFoodBadly everyone was starving]]... SC ate the melons before they could be turned into seeds.



* MissingFloor: Spyke very nearly built his house in DBMC Season 1 on top of Simon's 'hobbit hole', which at the time of Spyke's episode was covered up in a prank by Brian, which would have made it this.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Chronos wasn't around for the first part of season 1 as his computer was too bad to both play and record Minecraft with. The house he was building became the Museum when Nate, Jack, Brian and Joe went to The End.
** Season 2 was somewhat active, but players pushing to go to The End sooner than the others were willing caused an argument which ground the server to a halt.
* SelfDeprecation: Zach, while showing Chronos around the server in his first new episode of Season 1, takes potshots at his own inability to post videos when talking about Skyler's short-lived time on the server.



* TheQuest: The Pierce Family Treasure. Every person had a book with a hint to one of the puzzles on the way to the treasure, and most of the server gathered to take part. Zach had a pig steed that died multiple times, and Simon had ABlankFace.
