** The video "zooms out" of Dark Souls in one video to instead show the room at his ~~dormitory~~ (sorry, ''residence hall'') as he was leaving it not long after the episode was uploaded and he wanted a piece to remember it by.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Ash:''' Listen, I want to see Casey fight more-- I want to make Casey's life hell but still make him beat the game.


Added DiffLines:

* BackseatDriver: Though Ash is Casey's guide through Lordran, it becomes clear that Ash also wants to make sure that Casey kills 'every single enemy' before letting him finish the game, while alternatively complaining that he is exploring and not going directly to each thing. Also, that they want Casey to parry enemies far more than he actually does.
-->'''Ash:''' We're going for all bosses!\\
'''Casey:''' Wh- Who decide-- I didn't decide that!
** Coming to a head in the aptly named episode "Ash Plays Dark Souls".
** Though Casey does get back at him in episode 52 by joking that the rest of the series will be done on a keyboard and mouse instead of a controller, causing Ash to take a TenMinuteRetirement.


Added DiffLines:

* PromotedFanboy: Spicyrab (or Spicy) joins the duo here and there starting in episode 49 - when Ash quips that they don't watch any of Casey's videos, Spicy points out that she does (followed by Casey putting plenty of her YouTube comments on screen, all arguing about things Ash had said). [[invoked]]
* RunningGag: Dark Souls is sponsored by Snickers. Except when it isn't.
-->''Sponsored by Snickers. Eat Snickers! "It's Snickers."''
* ShoutOut: Of course, but also generally [[DiscussedTrope discussed]]. Casey brings up at the end of episode 50 that some references or uses of music can destroy his impression of a given media, including a movie that used a licenced song fittingly, and found himself torn on whether to include a LetsPlay/GameGrumps reference made by one of his commentators. (Ultimately he kept it in, and the discussion, because talking it out made him realise his argument didn't hold up in this given case.)
* SketchComedy: Sometimes, Casey takes the viewer away from the game to do something related to an event that happened or a topic of discussion.
** One sketch tied into the Snickers "sponsorship". Another was a re-enactment of a meeting with a "hacker" Casey talked to.

[[folder:Dark Souls with KC and Ash]]
Resident VideoGame/DarkSouls expert Ash convinces Casey to pick up and play VideoGame/DarkSoulsI, with no idea of what to expect. This happens to be the longest running series, with its first episode coming out on September 22, 2014. You can [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-8Pbv_DsYXR3S7Fx52IMS2gOEkuh31mI view the entire playlist here]].

* OverlyLongName: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4JDPZnLQjg&index=116&list=PL-8Pbv_DsYXR3S7Fx52IMS2gOEkuh31mI "So I've Been Having Trouble Naming This Episode And I've Gone Through It A Couple Of Times Looking For The Right Name, And: Oh Shit. Last Episode Should Have Been Titled 'Atonement, Part Two'. Whoops."]] Though the title gets shortened down to just "''Oh shit. Last episode should have been titled Atonement, Part Two. Whoops.''" in writing.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: A whole section of Episode 56 is replaced with one of Casey's "[[VideoGame/RocketLeague Rocket Klieg]]" review videos as he talks about Film/{{Deadpool}} with Phil.

* LostForever
** Nate Against Minecraft and Nate Against The Machine, as well as Joe and Jack's series', Survival Mode and Quick Attack, were previously lost to Blip.tv's account purge. Brought back with the release of The Layabouts Archive. [[http://old.wearethelayabouts.com/content/natm Nate Against The Machine]] and [[http://old.wearethelayabouts.com/content/survivalmode Survival Mode]] are now back in all their [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness oh-god-why-did-we-make-this]] glory.
** Phil deleted the first four uploads of his vanilla Season 1 footage, as they were raw footage from his starting out on the server. Viewers looking for his first Deadbeats video now will find him already with a house and a decent amount of items.

* ColdOpen: Episode 22 starts with Phil and Casey continuing on the topic of The West Wing (see IncrediblyLamePun) and Brian setting the timer for a full minute before the episode starts proper.
** Episodes 26 through 28 (The Megasode) start with an intro from Casey explaining the technical issues present.
* DeepImmersionGaming: The cast are represented in video as their personas in gear similar to Four Swords' Links.



* RuleOfThree: Mentioned by name (and the episode's title) of episode 37, as Brian's trying to explain the current goal of visiting Lanayru's Silent Realm to Casey, who's more focused on his conversation with Phil at the time.

[[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]].
