The ''because the internet'' screenplay ends in the middle of a word.word.
** "Stand Tall" (and by extent, the whole of ''"Awaken, My Love!"'') ends with him belting a note that gets suddenly cut off before it can finish.



** In "Backpackers" he sarcastically refers to himself as "the only white rapper who's allowed to say the n-word."

* RunningGag: His thing for Asian girls. Mostly gone as of ''because the internet''.
** It's just gotten subtler. He refers to a "half-Thai thickie" on "Sweatpants" and says he has to say "moshi moshi" when he talks to his girl on the phone on "Worldstar".

He refers to a "half-Thai thickie" really hammered it in early in his career (especially on "Sweatpants" and says he ''Camp''), but has to say "moshi moshi" when he talks to his girl on the phone on "Worldstar".
since toned it down.

* VocalEvolution: On the early, independently-released albums, he affects a croakier, LilWayne-esque voice. It wasn't until ''EP'' that he began to sound like the Childish Gambino we know today. And just when you thought he stopped there, he improved even ''more'' for ''"Awaken, My Love!"'' to the point where people genuinely thought he used effects on his voice for one song ("Redbone").

** The video for "Freaks and Geeks" is a true one-shot, considering it's one of his more minimal videos (him rapping while jumping around an empty warehouse).

** "Retro" is an updated version of "Love is Crazy", a song [[MythologyGag from his first mixtape]], ''Sick Boi''. It uses the same hook and beat (although it sounds more remastered and less lo-fi).



* SanitySlippage: ''because the internet'' has elements of this, and the short film ''Clapping for All the Wrong Reasons'' showcases this. While it just shows The Boy doing his everyday activities, there's something ''so off'' about, especially near the end. Also helps with the accompanying script.
