-> ''"[[StuffBlowingUp /give Honeydew 46 1]]"''
-->--'''Lewis''', ''ShadowOfIsraphel''

Two British gamers, Lewis and Simon (aka Xephos and Honeydew), making gameplay videos, adding funny (and often unrelated) audio commentary and posting them on [[http://www.youtube.com/user/BlueXephos their YouTube page]]. They are sometimes joined by their friend Hannah (Lomadia) as well as other ''WorldOfWarcraft'' guild mates. Starting their YouTube channel in July 2008, they have celebrated achieving 1 million subscribers on [=YouTube=] in October 2011.

After starting with ''Warcraft'', they have expanded into general gaming content, such as reviews and gameplay videos of games such as ''{{Fallout 3}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', ''FinalFantasyXIV'', ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', and ''TheWitcher 2''.

Their current flagship content is the YogscastMinecraftSeries, which has its own page.

There is also a podcast (called the [=YoGPoD=]) on their [[http://www.yogiverse.com website]].

They have also expanded into several other [=YouTube=] channels, with these channels managed members of the Yogscast other than Lewis and Simon. Here are [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastLalna "Lalna's"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastSips "Sips'"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastRythian "Rythian's"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastPeva "Peva's"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastTinman "Tinman's"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastSjin "Sjin's"]] channels. Hannah has taken over the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Yogscast2 "yogscast2"]] channel. Each channel hosts the various gaming content of the respective owners and other content that didn't make it to the main channel. Of special note are the "Yogtrailers", hosted on the yogscast2 channel, which focuses on several {{MST}}s of advertisements of new games coming out but quickly devolves into off topic rambling similar to their [=YoGPoD=].

Another member of TheGameStation, introduced there by their fellow Brit, TotalBiscuit.

They are actually attempting to create their own full-fledged game now; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIod3ZUBpys&feature=plcp&context=C40fadb4VDvjVQa1PpcFMc28lyYkGpjdbvX3AVLob_Ft5DjSEN5Ak%3D details here.]] Speaking of games, they publicly support a fan-made platforming game, and the main duo have even met with the developer: its FaceBook page is [[http://www.facebook.com/YogscastVideogame here]].

'''For examples pertaining to the Minecraft series, including Shadow of Israphel, see ''YogscastMinecraftSeries''.'''
----
!!Yogscast as a whole provides examples of these tropes:

* AccentuateTheNegative: Their opinion of games that they are not familiar with tend to be negative, especially if they had liked a previous game in a series; see their video series of ''DragonAgeII'' and ''FinalFantasyXIV''.
* AdultChild: Simon has his moments.
* AntiHero: Both are type II.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Simon. This also happens to both of them whenever they play ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]].
* AuthorAppeal: Dwarves. See Simon's character in the YogscastMinecraftSeries, Honeydew, and the undead dwarven pirate NPC Spacker. Also spreads to the [=YoGPoD=] constantly talking about dwarves, their YouTube profile image, and even their way of censoring inappropriate bits being images of dwarves.
** Taken to ridiculous levels in their ''GuildWars2'' preview, where Simon tries to make one of his characters as dwarfy as possible, despite playing a Norn, which are twice the size of humans. With the size slider turned up to max.
* AwesomeButImpractical: ARSE Mines in their ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' playthrough with TotalBiscuit. During their Christmas livestream when they finally begin playing ''Magicka'' again, ARSE-Mines are simultaneously their best weapon against Dwarves, and their worst enemy with {{Total Party Kill}}s.
* BetterThanABareBulb: Oh so very much.
* BeyondTheImpossible: The absolutely ridiculous lengths that Simon supposedly went to to protect his jam from Brian Blessed in one [=YoGPoD=].
* BigEater: Simon
* BigNo: Simon generally just drops these whenever something bad happens to him, Lewis, or a well-liked character during a game.
** Simon drops one of these in the single-player mode of ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', when he [[spoiler:tries to smuggle the CompanionCube with him and it disintegrates.]]
** Simon drops 2 giant ones during their playthrough of a ''{{Left 4 Dead}}'' Map [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro9v24idzdE modded to look like Minecraft...]][[spoiler:When tasked to find a stick and block of cobblestone to make a lever in the Nether Level, Simon first finds Xephos' (Lewis' {{Minecraft}} Avatar) corpse holding the stick, and then later Lewis finds Honeydew's (Simon's Avatar) corpse holding the block of cobble.]]
** Probably one of Simon's biggest No's comes when [[spoiler: Knight Peculier is killed in ShadowOfIsraphel]].
* BlandNameProduct: Crunchy Fried Wings, with its mascot, the General, in [=YoGPoD=] 37.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Male Version. The 6th Podcast has [[{{OMFGcata}} Jesse]], [[TheCynicalBrit TB]] and Simon respectively, [[BadassBeard BadassBeards]] and all.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: Following the typical loadout, both Simon and Lewis go with this - Simon more often using the Bow, and Lewis more often using the Sword, but they do take turns. How much it helps them out is up for debate.
** Their LP of ''{{Fable}} 3'' has Simon taking a rifle and sword, and Lewis using a pistol and warhammer, further cementing their roles of ranged and melee damage respectively.
* BrickJoke: The [[spoiler:crusty old molester]] from the first ''DungeonsAndDragons'' special makes a hilarious comeback in the second campaign:
-->'''Mulchie:''' Does Madewyn recognize the [[spoiler:old man]]?\\
'''Hannah:''' Oh, god.\\
'''Simon:''' Oh, ''god''.
** Also, a letter from "Nick Fuckface" in the podcast: Lewis refuses to read it at first, letting Simon do it in a following episode. It turned out to include the immortal line: '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZA44gHANaU "I am Dave ! Yognaut and I have the balls."]]'''
** In [=YoGPoD=], Warwick Davis [[spoiler:goes down the drain in Simon's sink]]. In the next [=YoGPoD=], one of the dividers is [[spoiler:"Hello, I'm Warwick Davis and I'm in a sewer."]]
* BringMyBrownPants: Simon and Lewis notice the unusual running animation of a character in ''DeadIsland''. They theorize that this trope is in effect.
-->'''Simon:''' Well, he ''was'' just in a helicopter crash, Lewis...
* BuffySpeak: Lewis is a master at this.
* CanineCompanion: The dogs in ''{{Fable}} 3''.
* CatchPhrase:
** Simon's "Follow me!" and "Cooooome 'eeeeeeere!" ("Come here!")
** Simon's girlish "Awwww!" along with Lewis' somewhat less girlish one.
** "That'sss a very nice everything you have there" whenever a Creeper shows up in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', referencing a popular {{meme}}.
** They call each other "Friend" an awful lot.
*** Lampshaded somewhat when they first arrive at the Mistral City graveyard and find their pre-planned graves. The prepared epitaph on Xephos's (Lewis's) grave is, rather touchingly, "Goodbye, Friends!"
*** Any official merchandise is sent with a thank-you card containing the message "Thanks for the support, Friend!"
** Simon doing a crude rendition of the Yogscast opening theme song with his voice during awkward silences.
** Humming the chest opening music from ''TheLegendOfZelda'' whenever they find some rare treasure. The "found a secret" from the same series and a simple angelic choir sound also pops up in a similar fashion.
** The charming but odd way Simon says "Hellloooooo!"
** "Balls to it" and variations.
** Asking/saying that someone's "Ballsed it up" whenever someone severely screws something up.
** "Hooraaaaaay!" whenever they escape a deadly situation or find something good. Simon tends to say this more, with Lewis sometimes following up with his less-excited one.
** Simon says "WHOOP" when trying to be cautious or coming very close to danger.
** The Diggy Diggy Hole song, as well as all of its variations.
** Lewis' "hup!" when ever he does a jumping puzzle.
** Fuckin' Hell's bells
** [[BigNo Nooooooo!!!]] Why would you do that?!!
** See you later, shitlord!
** "It's good, isn't it?" Often heard during mod spotlights.
** Simon blaming anything that goes wrong even in non-[[BlizzardEntertainment Blizzard]] games on Blizzard or "Blizz", often along the lines of "Oh come on, Blizz", or "What the hell, Blizz!".
** In {{Minecraft}} Mod spotlights, anytime Lewis is showing something new to Simon, Simon immediately goes [[FlatWhat "What?"]]. e.g., "So I put a nuclear reactor here in my basement..." "What?"
** Simon's anxious "Ooo!" whenever he's in jeopardy. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otZDWWbsqHo&feature=BFa&list=PL645A94C4720C11E7&lf=plpp_video Such as repeatedly throughout this video]] of ''{{Magicka}}: Vietnam''.
* ChastityCouple: Lewis and Hannah almost never show any signs of being in a relationship and never even reference having any kind of physical romance. The only way most people remember that they are even dating is when it is specifically mentioned by other people.
** Plus, during one [=YoGPoD=], Simon jokingly talks about having a secret "activity" with Hannah and Lewis reacts with mild jealousy.
** All the while Simon always refers to their relationship as them "living in sin" together.
* TheChewToy: Lewis is sometimes subjected to this.
** At the end of the third ''Magicka'' video, Simon gets a machine gun. He spends the next few minutes killing Lewis, rezzing him, and killing him again.
* CloudCuckoolander: Both of them, consistently, but Simon tends to be more often.
* CombatPragmatist: Lewis, according to his description of his own playthrough of ''FalloutNewVegas''. He has barely any idea who Joe Cobb's character is because, in his own words, as soon as he heard Cobb talking about burning down Goodsprings, he "shot him dead there and then," in order to avoid having difficulty killing him when he was actually supposed to.
* CompanionCube: Simon's is, well, [[VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} The Companion Cube]].
* ContinuityNod: Some of the donator names for the [=JustGiving=] fundraiser referenced old [=YoGPoDs=], such as "Nick Fuckface" and "Happy Adjustable Spanners".
* CreepyChild: Lewis' impression of one of these during the second Halloween [=YoGPoD=] gave Simon "the opposite of an erection".
* CurbStompBattle: ''MagicTheGathering'': Simon vs Lewis: Round 4, with Simon the stomper and Lewis the stompee.
* DeadpanSnarker: Lewis has his occasional moments.
** Simon gets downright abusive [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4F80D5250D1D3BFF&feature=plcp when Hannah plays]] FalloutNewVegas, constantly calling her out on her hoarding and poor gameplay decisions. As a result, it starts feeling like SpoilerWarning. But British.
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: When Lewis suggested that Simon's prisoner character's crime in ''[[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' was being a video game pirate, Simon responds that he probably deserves to be executed.
* DropTheHammer: Lewis' starting melee weapon of choice in ''{{Fable}} 3''.
* EpicFail: Referred to as "ballsing it up".
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: In the first episode of the Dungeons & Dragons Yogpod, Lewis refers to a man in an inn as '[[InvokedTrope barkeep]]', to which the man replies that [[SubvertedTrope he isn't a barkeep]], he's an innkeeper. He then reveals that his name is [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Jeremy Innkeeper]].
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: Simon apparently once dressed up as MarilynMonroe's corpse.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: While playing a {{left 4 dead 2}} custom map [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QL39g_lxmMk here]] Simon falls into a hole and requires assistance to get out, when the zombies become too much Lewis and Hannah leave him and proceed to the safe room while Simon shouts "How could you!?" Lewis replies "It's called left 4 dead", [[spoiler:Though they do go back and rescue him, eventually.]]
* GeniusDitz: Both Simon and Lewis are actually competent at things when they're not playing computer games. In at least one [=YoGPoD=], they go off on a tangent and start having a conversation about science in the middle of something silly.
** Simon is generally seen as the dumb one, but is an astrophysicist and often shows a better understanding of science than Lewis.
** Lewis himself had jobs as a freelance science journalist, an organic chemist, and a technology scientist.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In one of the Mists of Pandaria videos, there is a chat conversation going on about whether Pandas are bears or raccoons.
* FunWithAcronyms: Simon's anti-robot cruelty society, the '''H'''umane '''O'''rganization of '''R'''obotic '''S'''ocial '''E'''ngineers.
* GoshDangItToHeck:
** Lewis often replaces "fuckin' 'ell" with "flippin' 'eck", though the former is used quite frequently as well. He also sometimes uses "sugar" in lieu of "shit", commonly accompanied with a drawn-out initial s. Most likely more of an attempt to be cheeky than to actually cut down on swearing.
** On the ''VideoGame/{{Worms}} Reloaded'' charity livestream on Twitch TV, they try downplaying their swearing with phrases like "For fup's sake" and "Son of a bits!"
* HeterosexualLifePartners: As mentioned above, "friend" is a very commonly used word. "Where have you gone, friend?" "There you are, friend." "What have you found, friend?" "Take a look at this, friend."
** Lampshaded during their [[AccentuateTheNegative mockery/review]] of ''DragonAgeII''. When Simon find out that [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 maxing out a female ally's "friend" meter means that you can bang them]], Simon says that he acts mean to Lewis sometimes just to prevent this from happening in real life.
* HitAndRunTactics
* HollywoodAtheist: Lewis is apparently one of these. In one [=YoGPoD=], he started to talk about how religion was bollocks when Simon [[ShutUpHannibal interrupted him with a speech]] that every time he goes on a "fucking Dawkins rant" he sounds just as insane as a Christian fundamentalist. Much later, when they met a priest in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]], Simon said he was waiting for Lewis to "go all militant atheist" on him, but Lewis declined.
--> '''Lewis:''' No, no don't worry, I worship at the Church of Notch just like everyone else, Simon.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In part 8 of ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'', Simon blew himself off a bottomless pit thanks to the ARSE-mines he placed. Later on the Twitch Livestream on 20th of December, Simon gets blocked on a bridge by one of his own ARSE-mines. Simon (the first time), and TotalBiscuit (the second time) say this word for word.
-->''"Hoisted by my/your own petard!"''
* IdenticalStranger: A rare RealLife example. It was discussed in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZazsebiv78 the 6th podcast]] that [[{{OMFGcata}} Jesse Cox]] and Simon are eerily similar in looks.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Simon tries to one-up himself at how many baaad sheep jokes he can inflict on Lewis in "Cataclysm Easter Egg Sheep Farm".
** More recently from their Hack/Mine series, when Simon accidentally blows up a ladder leading to the next bit of the tower.
--> '''Simon''': "It's coladderal damage!"
* KleptomaniacHero: Taken to almost an art form; the only thing stopping Simon and Lewis from mining out entire buildings for loot in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]] is a combination of a [[ShopliftAndDie watchful NPC]] and their own incompetence.
** Hannah in the ''FalloutNewVegas'' LP. Stealing from the doctor that saves her life, stealing from a chest she's using for cover in a firefight, stealing from a guarded vault, ''pickpocketing said guards from across the room''...
* LargeHam: Simon often does this at the beginning of videos.
* LeitMotif: I'M A DWARF AND I'M DIGGING A HOLE!! DIGGY DIGGY HOLE!! DIGGING A HOLE!! Simon has done several variations of the song depending on the situation, from sleeping to swimming to destroying nether portals, even for non-''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' videos.
* LetsPlay: Sometimes a hybrid with machinima, as with the YogscastMInecraftSeries.
* [[LiveEpisode Live Streaming]]
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Simon voices nearly ''every character'' in their [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]]. He also habitually imitates other voices in other videos, such as Boone in the ''FalloutNewVegas'' LP.
** Simon and Lewis admit that this is the main reason why Simon's such a big part of the Yogscast compared to the other members. Paraphrased from a [=YoGPoD=] interview, Simon makes funny voices while Lewis does 90% of the work.
* MermaidProblem: Discussed in [=YoGPoD=] 21. According to Simon, Mermaids ''do'' have vaginas, but scaly ones.
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: While on board the aircraft carrier the USS ''Hornet'' for a massive LAN party, Simon told the tale of a boy turned into a plane.
-->''So this is Duncan. His real name is Jet Intake, right? His real name is Jet Intake, but his middle name is "Danger".''
* MSTing: Yogtrailers, on newly released or soon to be released video game advertisements and promos.
* NameMcAdjective: While Lewis rambles about altered maps in ''WorldOfWarcraft'', Simon dismissively goes "Sure thing, Mumbly [=McWhisperstein=]".
* {{Nerdgasm}}: Simon has one over ''TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' in [=YoGPoD=] 36.
* NoYouHangUpFirst: In [=YoGPoD=] 2, Simon does this ''to himself'' while hanging up a phone call.
* OnlySaneMan: Lewis is sometimes subjected to this whenever Simon starts making impulsive decisions.
** Lewis is doubly the OnlySaneMan when the Yogscast play with TotalBiscuit in their ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' playthrough; Simon is off being TheLoad and TheFool while [=TotalBiscuit=] becomes a LargeHam ''and'' DeadpanSnarker, somehow.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping:
** Simon's [[TheKarateKid Mr. Miyagi]] voice somehow turning into a stereotypical Jewish accent.
** Simon's occasional lapses into his [[LargeHam "Professor Grizwald"]] voice when narrating.
*** Lampshaded in a story Simon told where ''forgot how he actually spoke'' in RealLife and yelled out things like orders for food in his Grizwald voice for a couple of weeks.
** Lewis' voice for Fulgrim the ex-pirate half-orc in the ''DungeonsAndDragons'' podcasts.
-->'''Mulchie:''' Can I walk away from the man with the strange Irish-Scottish-Welsh accent, please?
* OrphanedSeries:
** Simon stopped his ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' single player LetsPlay because he was tired of getting comments about his inability to solve the puzzles.
** The Yogcast's ''{{Fable}} 3'' Co-Op LetsPlay crash and burned after Simon got stuck in a tree due to a glitch the developers didn't bother to fix after porting it to the PC. Also resulted in Simon {{Rage Quit}}ing.
* PaperThinDisguise: Santa Claus looked rather suspicious in Day 1 of the 2011 Christmas Advent Calender. Especially with his inability to drink with his beard.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord:
** "Excitingest". It's a word.
** Simon says meece/meeces is the plural of moose, and don't you let anyone ever tell you different! [[hottip:*:Though, the developers of ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' (the game the Yogscast was playing with TotalBiscuit) agree with Simon and ''also'' called them meece.]]
* {{Podcast}}
* PyroManiac: '''''Simon'''''.
* RedOniBlueOni: Simon is red, eager to cause damage and wreak havoc and clearly the most spirited about this experiment. Lewis is blue, thinking things through sometimes too carefully, and hardly unnerved. During Planetoids in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]], while Simon was loudly crying over mobs spawning, at night, left alone, and having died earlier, Lewis ignored him and commented on how the clouds were "causing some trouble for him."
* RefugeInAudacity: Simon walking around on a US aircraft carrier, wearing a hat he'd ''stolen from the Captain's quarters.''
* RunningGag:
** Throughout the entire Yogscast, the [[{{Leitmotif}} Diggy Diggy Hole Song]] and its many spinoffs.
** Ditto for Simon spontaneously breaking out into his trademark [[LargeHam "Professor Grizwald" voice]].
** "[[BigNo Noooo]] Bill it's not your time!" during The Sacrifice campaign of ''Left4Dead2''. Doubly funny because the crew had played The Passing campaign first.
** Lewis demonstrates a very unusual game, and Simon comments on how he doesn't seem to realize how weird it is.
** The washing machine heard in the background of Hannah's ''LANoire'' LetsPlay. Especially {{egregious}} because of how even Simon and Lewis, who just happen to be in the background of Hannah's playthrough, complain about the damn machine.
** The word "Spacker". Mentioned multiple times in the [=YoGPoD=] [[ItMakesSenseInContext as a made-up nickname for an illegal substance]], and is the name of a character in ''ShadowOfIsraphel''.
** Simon and Lewis's [[StalkerWithACrush love of Tina Barrett]]. Especially prevelant in the [=YoGPoD=], where they mention that they regularly check her MySpace.
** For [[BlatantLies copyright reasons]], all songs must be out of tune.
* {{Scandalgate}}: The second [[{{Podcast}} YoGPoD]], Sipsgate, in which Lewis randomly calls his internet friend Sips (who said to never, ever call him in real life except in emergencies related to their website, which he upkeeps) ''three'' times for no reason other than entertainment. Luckily, the potential scandal and defriending is averted, and Sips is cool with it... as long as they don't call him ''again''.
* ScheduleSlip: In regards to their ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' co-op with TotalBiscuit; the three had increasingly busy schedules starting after Part 8, and Part 14, a 40+ minute episode, had audio issues that [=TotalBiscuit=] still hadn't edited out yet when it was finally released ''two months'' after recording.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Sips, completely cornered in a game of ''VideoGame/{{Worms}} Reloaded'' just gives up and has his last worm jump into the water.
-->'''Sips''': You know what? Fuck you guys. Fuck this game. Fuck you. *jumps*
* SeriousBusiness: Simon protecting his jam.
* ShoutOut:
** Simon yelling [[TopGear Oliver!!]] whilst playing ''DeadIsland''.
** In [=YoGPoD=] 36, Simon mentioned that it would take a parsec to find his lost jam, especially if he used the [[ANewHope Kessel Run]].
* SolemnEndingTheme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNqwyAflwmo&t=3m This operatic rendition]] of the Yogscast theme performed by Simon.
* SophisticatedAsHell: During their ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' co-op, seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIXA4gUm2Us here]].
-->'''Simon:''' I know, I know. You don't need to fling yourself, you just need to be moving really quickly, because momentum is conserved...\\
'''Lewis:''' Ohhh.\\
'''Simon:''' And the way to do that is to make sure that there's loads of fucking gel everywhere.\\
'''Lewis:''' (laughs)
* SoundEffectBleep: In ''VideOGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline'' review, Simon's potentially slanderous comments about Turbine's CEO is censored.
* SpotOfTea: This is one of Lewis' favorite drinks.
* {{Squee}}: Lewis, on occasion. For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhR04COpwts&list=UUH-_hzb2ILSCo9ftVSnrCIQ&feature=plcp his reaction to kittens]].
* AStormIsComing: The metaphorical version of this is mocked in their [=YoGPoD=] interview with [[Series/GameOfThrones Hodor's actor, Kristian Naire]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILPqnZ1ZN0E]]
-->'''Simon, [[ManOfAThousandVoices as Sean Bean]]:''' Winter is coming. [[BrickJoke And so am I.]] [[{{Squick}} Urrggh]]. [[invoked]]
* StronglyWordedLetter: In the [=YoGPoD=], Lewis recounts that his father is so un-tech savvy that he sends these to then-prime minister GordonBrown.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: They make great use of this during to cover some of their... less heroic actions - with good intentions and mild (at most) consequences, of course!
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Simon '''LOVES''' his Jaffa Cakes.
** Brian Blessed has jam sandwiches.
* VerbalTic: "The thing is..." While it seems that Lewis says this phrase most often, both Simon and Hannah use it, as infamously pointed out by a fan who edited together ''several minutes'' of them saying the phrase without consciously knowing it in a [=YoGPoD=].
* WaxingLyrical: While closing off the ''WorldOfWarcraft'' archaeology video, Simon says "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Have_a_Dream_%28song%29 I believe in angels. Something good in everyone I see.]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Believe_I_Can_Fly And I also believe that I can fly. That I can touch the sky]]".
* WimpFight: In a video where Simon and Hannah are trying out ''Total Miner'', Hannah comes across a GiantSpider in an underground cavern, and she constantly tries to attack it with her pickaxe while she's way too far to actually hit anything. Even when she gets up close enough that the spider takes up the entire game screen, she ''still'' can't attack it and is too terrified to get closer to see if the pickaxe can even be used to attack spiders.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://wiki.yogiverse.com/index.php?title=Main_Page Here.]] The Wiki is just as informal as TVTropes, fittingly enough.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: The "yogs" part of the name stands for "Ye Olde Goone Squade", the name of their [=WoW=] guild when they started making videos.
* YourMom: In one of the [=YoGPoDs=], Simon makes a ''WorldOfWarcraft''-themed one of these, realises that the mechanic was revamped, and makes ''another'' one related to ''World of Warcraft''.

-> ''"[[StuffBlowingUp /give Honeydew 46 1]]"''
-->--'''Lewis''', ''ShadowOfIsraphel''

Two British gamers, Lewis and Simon (aka Xephos and Honeydew), making gameplay videos, adding funny (and often unrelated) audio commentary and posting them on [[http://www.youtube.com/user/BlueXephos their YouTube page]]. They are sometimes joined by their friend Hannah (Lomadia) as well as other ''WorldOfWarcraft'' guild mates. Starting their YouTube channel in July 2008, they have celebrated achieving 1 million subscribers on [=YouTube=] in October 2011.

After starting with ''Warcraft'', they have expanded into general gaming content, such as reviews and gameplay videos of games such as ''{{Fallout 3}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', ''FinalFantasyXIV'', ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', and ''TheWitcher 2''.

Their current flagship content is the YogscastMinecraftSeries, which has its own page.

There is also a podcast (called the [=YoGPoD=]) on their [[http://www.yogiverse.com website]].

They have also expanded into several other [=YouTube=] channels, with these channels managed members of the Yogscast other than Lewis and Simon. Here are [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastLalna "Lalna's"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastSips "Sips'"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastRythian "Rythian's"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastPeva "Peva's"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastTinman "Tinman's"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/YogscastSjin "Sjin's"]] channels. Hannah has taken over the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Yogscast2 "yogscast2"]] channel. Each channel hosts the various gaming content of the respective owners and other content that didn't make it to the main channel. Of special note are the "Yogtrailers", hosted on the yogscast2 channel, which focuses on several {{MST}}s of advertisements of new games coming out but quickly devolves into off topic rambling similar to their [=YoGPoD=].

Another member of TheGameStation, introduced there by their fellow Brit, TotalBiscuit.

They are actually attempting to create their own full-fledged game now; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIod3ZUBpys&feature=plcp&context=C40fadb4VDvjVQa1PpcFMc28lyYkGpjdbvX3AVLob_Ft5DjSEN5Ak%3D details here.]] Speaking of games, they publicly support a fan-made platforming game, and the main duo have even met with the developer: its FaceBook page is [[http://www.facebook.com/YogscastVideogame here]].

'''For examples pertaining to the Minecraft series, including Shadow of Israphel, see ''YogscastMinecraftSeries''.'''
----
!!Yogscast as a whole provides examples of these tropes:

* AccentuateTheNegative: Their opinion of games that they are not familiar with tend to be negative, especially if they had liked a previous game in a series; see their video series of ''DragonAgeII'' and ''FinalFantasyXIV''.
* AdultChild: Simon has his moments.
* AntiHero: Both are type II.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Simon. This also happens to both of them whenever they play ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]].
* AuthorAppeal: Dwarves. See Simon's character in the YogscastMinecraftSeries, Honeydew, and the undead dwarven pirate NPC Spacker. Also spreads to the [=YoGPoD=] constantly talking about dwarves, their YouTube profile image, and even their way of censoring inappropriate bits being images of dwarves.
** Taken to ridiculous levels in their ''GuildWars2'' preview, where Simon tries to make one of his characters as dwarfy as possible, despite playing a Norn, which are twice the size of humans. With the size slider turned up to max.
* AwesomeButImpractical: ARSE Mines in their ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' playthrough with TotalBiscuit. During their Christmas livestream when they finally begin playing ''Magicka'' again, ARSE-Mines are simultaneously their best weapon against Dwarves, and their worst enemy with {{Total Party Kill}}s.
* BetterThanABareBulb: Oh so very much.
* BeyondTheImpossible: The absolutely ridiculous lengths that Simon supposedly went to to protect his jam from Brian Blessed in one [=YoGPoD=].
* BigEater: Simon
* BigNo: Simon generally just drops these whenever something bad happens to him, Lewis, or a well-liked character during a game.
** Simon drops one of these in the single-player mode of ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', when he [[spoiler:tries to smuggle the CompanionCube with him and it disintegrates.]]
** Simon drops 2 giant ones during their playthrough of a ''{{Left 4 Dead}}'' Map [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ro9v24idzdE modded to look like Minecraft...]][[spoiler:When tasked to find a stick and block of cobblestone to make a lever in the Nether Level, Simon first finds Xephos' (Lewis' {{Minecraft}} Avatar) corpse holding the stick, and then later Lewis finds Honeydew's (Simon's Avatar) corpse holding the block of cobble.]]
** Probably one of Simon's biggest No's comes when [[spoiler: Knight Peculier is killed in ShadowOfIsraphel]].
* BlandNameProduct: Crunchy Fried Wings, with its mascot, the General, in [=YoGPoD=] 37.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Male Version. The 6th Podcast has [[{{OMFGcata}} Jesse]], [[TheCynicalBrit TB]] and Simon respectively, [[BadassBeard BadassBeards]] and all.
* BowAndSwordInAccord: Following the typical loadout, both Simon and Lewis go with this - Simon more often using the Bow, and Lewis more often using the Sword, but they do take turns. How much it helps them out is up for debate.
** Their LP of ''{{Fable}} 3'' has Simon taking a rifle and sword, and Lewis using a pistol and warhammer, further cementing their roles of ranged and melee damage respectively.
* BrickJoke: The [[spoiler:crusty old molester]] from the first ''DungeonsAndDragons'' special makes a hilarious comeback in the second campaign:
-->'''Mulchie:''' Does Madewyn recognize the [[spoiler:old man]]?\\
'''Hannah:''' Oh, god.\\
'''Simon:''' Oh, ''god''.
** Also, a letter from "Nick Fuckface" in the podcast: Lewis refuses to read it at first, letting Simon do it in a following episode. It turned out to include the immortal line: '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZA44gHANaU "I am Dave ! Yognaut and I have the balls."]]'''
** In [=YoGPoD=], Warwick Davis [[spoiler:goes down the drain in Simon's sink]]. In the next [=YoGPoD=], one of the dividers is [[spoiler:"Hello, I'm Warwick Davis and I'm in a sewer."]]
* BringMyBrownPants: Simon and Lewis notice the unusual running animation of a character in ''DeadIsland''. They theorize that this trope is in effect.
-->'''Simon:''' Well, he ''was'' just in a helicopter crash, Lewis...
* BuffySpeak: Lewis is a master at this.
* CanineCompanion: The dogs in ''{{Fable}} 3''.
* CatchPhrase:
** Simon's "Follow me!" and "Cooooome 'eeeeeeere!" ("Come here!")
** Simon's girlish "Awwww!" along with Lewis' somewhat less girlish one.
** "That'sss a very nice everything you have there" whenever a Creeper shows up in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', referencing a popular {{meme}}.
** They call each other "Friend" an awful lot.
*** Lampshaded somewhat when they first arrive at the Mistral City graveyard and find their pre-planned graves. The prepared epitaph on Xephos's (Lewis's) grave is, rather touchingly, "Goodbye, Friends!"
*** Any official merchandise is sent with a thank-you card containing the message "Thanks for the support, Friend!"
** Simon doing a crude rendition of the Yogscast opening theme song with his voice during awkward silences.
** Humming the chest opening music from ''TheLegendOfZelda'' whenever they find some rare treasure. The "found a secret" from the same series and a simple angelic choir sound also pops up in a similar fashion.
** The charming but odd way Simon says "Hellloooooo!"
** "Balls to it" and variations.
** Asking/saying that someone's "Ballsed it up" whenever someone severely screws something up.
** "Hooraaaaaay!" whenever they escape a deadly situation or find something good. Simon tends to say this more, with Lewis sometimes following up with his less-excited one.
** Simon says "WHOOP" when trying to be cautious or coming very close to danger.
** The Diggy Diggy Hole song, as well as all of its variations.
** Lewis' "hup!" when ever he does a jumping puzzle.
** Fuckin' Hell's bells
** [[BigNo Nooooooo!!!]] Why would you do that?!!
** See you later, shitlord!
** "It's good, isn't it?" Often heard during mod spotlights.
** Simon blaming anything that goes wrong even in non-[[BlizzardEntertainment Blizzard]] games on Blizzard or "Blizz", often along the lines of "Oh come on, Blizz", or "What the hell, Blizz!".
** In {{Minecraft}} Mod spotlights, anytime Lewis is showing something new to Simon, Simon immediately goes [[FlatWhat "What?"]]. e.g., "So I put a nuclear reactor here in my basement..." "What?"
** Simon's anxious "Ooo!" whenever he's in jeopardy. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otZDWWbsqHo&feature=BFa&list=PL645A94C4720C11E7&lf=plpp_video Such as repeatedly throughout this video]] of ''{{Magicka}}: Vietnam''.
* ChastityCouple: Lewis and Hannah almost never show any signs of being in a relationship and never even reference having any kind of physical romance. The only way most people remember that they are even dating is when it is specifically mentioned by other people.
** Plus, during one [=YoGPoD=], Simon jokingly talks about having a secret "activity" with Hannah and Lewis reacts with mild jealousy.
** All the while Simon always refers to their relationship as them "living in sin" together.
* TheChewToy: Lewis is sometimes subjected to this.
** At the end of the third ''Magicka'' video, Simon gets a machine gun. He spends the next few minutes killing Lewis, rezzing him, and killing him again.
* CloudCuckoolander: Both of them, consistently, but Simon tends to be more often.
* CombatPragmatist: Lewis, according to his description of his own playthrough of ''FalloutNewVegas''. He has barely any idea who Joe Cobb's character is because, in his own words, as soon as he heard Cobb talking about burning down Goodsprings, he "shot him dead there and then," in order to avoid having difficulty killing him when he was actually supposed to.
* CompanionCube: Simon's is, well, [[VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} The Companion Cube]].
* ContinuityNod: Some of the donator names for the [=JustGiving=] fundraiser referenced old [=YoGPoDs=], such as "Nick Fuckface" and "Happy Adjustable Spanners".
* CreepyChild: Lewis' impression of one of these during the second Halloween [=YoGPoD=] gave Simon "the opposite of an erection".
* CurbStompBattle: ''MagicTheGathering'': Simon vs Lewis: Round 4, with Simon the stomper and Lewis the stompee.
* DeadpanSnarker: Lewis has his occasional moments.
** Simon gets downright abusive [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4F80D5250D1D3BFF&feature=plcp when Hannah plays]] FalloutNewVegas, constantly calling her out on her hoarding and poor gameplay decisions. As a result, it starts feeling like SpoilerWarning. But British.
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: When Lewis suggested that Simon's prisoner character's crime in ''[[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' was being a video game pirate, Simon responds that he probably deserves to be executed.
* DropTheHammer: Lewis' starting melee weapon of choice in ''{{Fable}} 3''.
* EpicFail: Referred to as "ballsing it up".
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: In the first episode of the Dungeons & Dragons Yogpod, Lewis refers to a man in an inn as '[[InvokedTrope barkeep]]', to which the man replies that [[SubvertedTrope he isn't a barkeep]], he's an innkeeper. He then reveals that his name is [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Jeremy Innkeeper]].
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: Simon apparently once dressed up as MarilynMonroe's corpse.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: While playing a {{left 4 dead 2}} custom map [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QL39g_lxmMk here]] Simon falls into a hole and requires assistance to get out, when the zombies become too much Lewis and Hannah leave him and proceed to the safe room while Simon shouts "How could you!?" Lewis replies "It's called left 4 dead", [[spoiler:Though they do go back and rescue him, eventually.]]
* GeniusDitz: Both Simon and Lewis are actually competent at things when they're not playing computer games. In at least one [=YoGPoD=], they go off on a tangent and start having a conversation about science in the middle of something silly.
** Simon is generally seen as the dumb one, but is an astrophysicist and often shows a better understanding of science than Lewis.
** Lewis himself had jobs as a freelance science journalist, an organic chemist, and a technology scientist.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In one of the Mists of Pandaria videos, there is a chat conversation going on about whether Pandas are bears or raccoons.
* FunWithAcronyms: Simon's anti-robot cruelty society, the '''H'''umane '''O'''rganization of '''R'''obotic '''S'''ocial '''E'''ngineers.
* GoshDangItToHeck:
** Lewis often replaces "fuckin' 'ell" with "flippin' 'eck", though the former is used quite frequently as well. He also sometimes uses "sugar" in lieu of "shit", commonly accompanied with a drawn-out initial s. Most likely more of an attempt to be cheeky than to actually cut down on swearing.
** On the ''VideoGame/{{Worms}} Reloaded'' charity livestream on Twitch TV, they try downplaying their swearing with phrases like "For fup's sake" and "Son of a bits!"
* HeterosexualLifePartners: As mentioned above, "friend" is a very commonly used word. "Where have you gone, friend?" "There you are, friend." "What have you found, friend?" "Take a look at this, friend."
** Lampshaded during their [[AccentuateTheNegative mockery/review]] of ''DragonAgeII''. When Simon find out that [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 maxing out a female ally's "friend" meter means that you can bang them]], Simon says that he acts mean to Lewis sometimes just to prevent this from happening in real life.
* HitAndRunTactics
* HollywoodAtheist: Lewis is apparently one of these. In one [=YoGPoD=], he started to talk about how religion was bollocks when Simon [[ShutUpHannibal interrupted him with a speech]] that every time he goes on a "fucking Dawkins rant" he sounds just as insane as a Christian fundamentalist. Much later, when they met a priest in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]], Simon said he was waiting for Lewis to "go all militant atheist" on him, but Lewis declined.
--> '''Lewis:''' No, no don't worry, I worship at the Church of Notch just like everyone else, Simon.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In part 8 of ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'', Simon blew himself off a bottomless pit thanks to the ARSE-mines he placed. Later on the Twitch Livestream on 20th of December, Simon gets blocked on a bridge by one of his own ARSE-mines. Simon (the first time), and TotalBiscuit (the second time) say this word for word.
-->''"Hoisted by my/your own petard!"''
* IdenticalStranger: A rare RealLife example. It was discussed in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZazsebiv78 the 6th podcast]] that [[{{OMFGcata}} Jesse Cox]] and Simon are eerily similar in looks.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Simon tries to one-up himself at how many baaad sheep jokes he can inflict on Lewis in "Cataclysm Easter Egg Sheep Farm".
** More recently from their Hack/Mine series, when Simon accidentally blows up a ladder leading to the next bit of the tower.
--> '''Simon''': "It's coladderal damage!"
* KleptomaniacHero: Taken to almost an art form; the only thing stopping Simon and Lewis from mining out entire buildings for loot in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]] is a combination of a [[ShopliftAndDie watchful NPC]] and their own incompetence.
** Hannah in the ''FalloutNewVegas'' LP. Stealing from the doctor that saves her life, stealing from a chest she's using for cover in a firefight, stealing from a guarded vault, ''pickpocketing said guards from across the room''...
* LargeHam: Simon often does this at the beginning of videos.
* LeitMotif: I'M A DWARF AND I'M DIGGING A HOLE!! DIGGY DIGGY HOLE!! DIGGING A HOLE!! Simon has done several variations of the song depending on the situation, from sleeping to swimming to destroying nether portals, even for non-''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' videos.
* LetsPlay: Sometimes a hybrid with machinima, as with the YogscastMInecraftSeries.
* [[LiveEpisode Live Streaming]]
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Simon voices nearly ''every character'' in their [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]]. He also habitually imitates other voices in other videos, such as Boone in the ''FalloutNewVegas'' LP.
** Simon and Lewis admit that this is the main reason why Simon's such a big part of the Yogscast compared to the other members. Paraphrased from a [=YoGPoD=] interview, Simon makes funny voices while Lewis does 90% of the work.
* MermaidProblem: Discussed in [=YoGPoD=] 21. According to Simon, Mermaids ''do'' have vaginas, but scaly ones.
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: While on board the aircraft carrier the USS ''Hornet'' for a massive LAN party, Simon told the tale of a boy turned into a plane.
-->''So this is Duncan. His real name is Jet Intake, right? His real name is Jet Intake, but his middle name is "Danger".''
* MSTing: Yogtrailers, on newly released or soon to be released video game advertisements and promos.
* NameMcAdjective: While Lewis rambles about altered maps in ''WorldOfWarcraft'', Simon dismissively goes "Sure thing, Mumbly [=McWhisperstein=]".
* {{Nerdgasm}}: Simon has one over ''TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' in [=YoGPoD=] 36.
* NoYouHangUpFirst: In [=YoGPoD=] 2, Simon does this ''to himself'' while hanging up a phone call.
* OnlySaneMan: Lewis is sometimes subjected to this whenever Simon starts making impulsive decisions.
** Lewis is doubly the OnlySaneMan when the Yogscast play with TotalBiscuit in their ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' playthrough; Simon is off being TheLoad and TheFool while [=TotalBiscuit=] becomes a LargeHam ''and'' DeadpanSnarker, somehow.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping:
** Simon's [[TheKarateKid Mr. Miyagi]] voice somehow turning into a stereotypical Jewish accent.
** Simon's occasional lapses into his [[LargeHam "Professor Grizwald"]] voice when narrating.
*** Lampshaded in a story Simon told where ''forgot how he actually spoke'' in RealLife and yelled out things like orders for food in his Grizwald voice for a couple of weeks.
** Lewis' voice for Fulgrim the ex-pirate half-orc in the ''DungeonsAndDragons'' podcasts.
-->'''Mulchie:''' Can I walk away from the man with the strange Irish-Scottish-Welsh accent, please?
* OrphanedSeries:
** Simon stopped his ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' single player LetsPlay because he was tired of getting comments about his inability to solve the puzzles.
** The Yogcast's ''{{Fable}} 3'' Co-Op LetsPlay crash and burned after Simon got stuck in a tree due to a glitch the developers didn't bother to fix after porting it to the PC. Also resulted in Simon {{Rage Quit}}ing.
* PaperThinDisguise: Santa Claus looked rather suspicious in Day 1 of the 2011 Christmas Advent Calender. Especially with his inability to drink with his beard.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord:
** "Excitingest". It's a word.
** Simon says meece/meeces is the plural of moose, and don't you let anyone ever tell you different! [[hottip:*:Though, the developers of ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' (the game the Yogscast was playing with TotalBiscuit) agree with Simon and ''also'' called them meece.]]
* {{Podcast}}
* PyroManiac: '''''Simon'''''.
* RedOniBlueOni: Simon is red, eager to cause damage and wreak havoc and clearly the most spirited about this experiment. Lewis is blue, thinking things through sometimes too carefully, and hardly unnerved. During Planetoids in the [[YogscastMinecraftSeries Minecraft series]], while Simon was loudly crying over mobs spawning, at night, left alone, and having died earlier, Lewis ignored him and commented on how the clouds were "causing some trouble for him."
* RefugeInAudacity: Simon walking around on a US aircraft carrier, wearing a hat he'd ''stolen from the Captain's quarters.''
* RunningGag:
** Throughout the entire Yogscast, the [[{{Leitmotif}} Diggy Diggy Hole Song]] and its many spinoffs.
** Ditto for Simon spontaneously breaking out into his trademark [[LargeHam "Professor Grizwald" voice]].
** "[[BigNo Noooo]] Bill it's not your time!" during The Sacrifice campaign of ''Left4Dead2''. Doubly funny because the crew had played The Passing campaign first.
** Lewis demonstrates a very unusual game, and Simon comments on how he doesn't seem to realize how weird it is.
** The washing machine heard in the background of Hannah's ''LANoire'' LetsPlay. Especially {{egregious}} because of how even Simon and Lewis, who just happen to be in the background of Hannah's playthrough, complain about the damn machine.
** The word "Spacker". Mentioned multiple times in the [=YoGPoD=] [[ItMakesSenseInContext as a made-up nickname for an illegal substance]], and is the name of a character in ''ShadowOfIsraphel''.
** Simon and Lewis's [[StalkerWithACrush love of Tina Barrett]]. Especially prevelant in the [=YoGPoD=], where they mention that they regularly check her MySpace.
** For [[BlatantLies copyright reasons]], all songs must be out of tune.
* {{Scandalgate}}: The second [[{{Podcast}} YoGPoD]], Sipsgate, in which Lewis randomly calls his internet friend Sips (who said to never, ever call him in real life except in emergencies related to their website, which he upkeeps) ''three'' times for no reason other than entertainment. Luckily, the potential scandal and defriending is averted, and Sips is cool with it... as long as they don't call him ''again''.
* ScheduleSlip: In regards to their ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' co-op with TotalBiscuit; the three had increasingly busy schedules starting after Part 8, and Part 14, a 40+ minute episode, had audio issues that [=TotalBiscuit=] still hadn't edited out yet when it was finally released ''two months'' after recording.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Sips, completely cornered in a game of ''VideoGame/{{Worms}} Reloaded'' just gives up and has his last worm jump into the water.
-->'''Sips''': You know what? Fuck you guys. Fuck this game. Fuck you. *jumps*
* SeriousBusiness: Simon protecting his jam.
* ShoutOut:
** Simon yelling [[TopGear Oliver!!]] whilst playing ''DeadIsland''.
** In [=YoGPoD=] 36, Simon mentioned that it would take a parsec to find his lost jam, especially if he used the [[ANewHope Kessel Run]].
* SolemnEndingTheme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNqwyAflwmo&t=3m This operatic rendition]] of the Yogscast theme performed by Simon.
* SophisticatedAsHell: During their ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' co-op, seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIXA4gUm2Us here]].
-->'''Simon:''' I know, I know. You don't need to fling yourself, you just need to be moving really quickly, because momentum is conserved...\\
'''Lewis:''' Ohhh.\\
'''Simon:''' And the way to do that is to make sure that there's loads of fucking gel everywhere.\\
'''Lewis:''' (laughs)
* SoundEffectBleep: In ''VideOGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline'' review, Simon's potentially slanderous comments about Turbine's CEO is censored.
* SpotOfTea: This is one of Lewis' favorite drinks.
* {{Squee}}: Lewis, on occasion. For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhR04COpwts&list=UUH-_hzb2ILSCo9ftVSnrCIQ&feature=plcp his reaction to kittens]].
* AStormIsComing: The metaphorical version of this is mocked in their [=YoGPoD=] interview with [[Series/GameOfThrones Hodor's actor, Kristian Naire]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILPqnZ1ZN0E]]
-->'''Simon, [[ManOfAThousandVoices as Sean Bean]]:''' Winter is coming. [[BrickJoke And so am I.]] [[{{Squick}} Urrggh]]. [[invoked]]
* StronglyWordedLetter: In the [=YoGPoD=], Lewis recounts that his father is so un-tech savvy that he sends these to then-prime minister GordonBrown.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: They make great use of this during to cover some of their... less heroic actions - with good intentions and mild (at most) consequences, of course!
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Simon '''LOVES''' his Jaffa Cakes.
** Brian Blessed has jam sandwiches.
* VerbalTic: "The thing is..." While it seems that Lewis says this phrase most often, both Simon and Hannah use it, as infamously pointed out by a fan who edited together ''several minutes'' of them saying the phrase without consciously knowing it in a [=YoGPoD=].
* WaxingLyrical: While closing off the ''WorldOfWarcraft'' archaeology video, Simon says "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Have_a_Dream_%28song%29 I believe in angels. Something good in everyone I see.]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Believe_I_Can_Fly And I also believe that I can fly. That I can touch the sky]]".
* WimpFight: In a video where Simon and Hannah are trying out ''Total Miner'', Hannah comes across a GiantSpider in an underground cavern, and she constantly tries to attack it with her pickaxe while she's way too far to actually hit anything. Even when she gets up close enough that the spider takes up the entire game screen, she ''still'' can't attack it and is too terrified to get closer to see if the pickaxe can even be used to attack spiders.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://wiki.yogiverse.com/index.php?title=Main_Page Here.]] The Wiki is just as informal as TVTropes, fittingly enough.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: The "yogs" part of the name stands for "Ye Olde Goone Squade", the name of their [=WoW=] guild when they started making videos.
* YourMom: In one of the [=YoGPoDs=], Simon makes a ''WorldOfWarcraft''-themed one of these, realises that the mechanic was revamped, and makes ''another'' one related to ''World of Warcraft''.
