* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Phelous will often [[ActorAllusion note certain actor's notable roles]] (Ryder Strong is [[Series/BoyMeetsWorld Friend-Meets-World]], Linden Ashby is [[Film/MortalKombat Johnny Cage]]) in his reviews.
** Taken to an extreme in his reviews for ''Film/HouseOfTheDead'', ''Film/HouseOfTheDeadIIDeadAim'', and ''Dead and Deader'' (which was originally planned to be a sequel to ''House of the Dead'') which he reviews back-to-back-to-back. Ellie Cornell played a role in all three, and Phelous incredulously comes up with a theory as to why.
** Visitors of early Newgrounds might recognize his voice as the Fish in a Spaceship from Eskimo Bob (the [[TalkingToHimself Fish even makes a cameo in one review]]).

* AscendedFanon: For years, IMDB has listed Phelous's show as ''Phelous and the Movies'', which he has been using jokingly in his references.... until his ''Lion and the King'' review where it's actually a thing now.

* OldShame: After leaving Channel Awesome, {{Phelous}} described ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' as "The worst movie in the universe", claiming that the films [[{{Narm}} attempts at being "serious" while also balancing the comedy didn't work well]] and criticizing its lifting of scenes wholesale from other movies. Phelous also claimed that some people on the site were gossiping about him "half assing" the effects that he was contracted to do for the film, and sent {{Welshy}} to spy on him to ensure that he was doing a good job (which Welshy ended up not doing due to being close friends with Phelous). His earlier commentary of the film consisted of himself, ObscurusLupa and BradJones making fun of it.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In ''Dead and Deader'', he wonders what it would have been like if he had decided to not review that stupid ''House of the Dead'' quasi-sequel at all. Cue a flash to alternate-reality Phelous with [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes]] shrieking he needs to review a bad movie or he'll kill everyone.
