* HeyItsThatGuy: Both slowbeef and Diabetus are well-known in the LetsPlay community -- the latter for his [=LPs=] of ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' (and Battlemaniacs, the sequel) and the former for doing the first known video LP (the concept described as being like a DVD commentary on a movie done by someone who had nothing to do with its production) of ''VideoGame/TheImmortal''. Also, slowbeef, as mentioned under the SelfDeprecation entry, was involved in the translation patch for ''Visualnovel/{{Policenauts}}''.
** Other recurring third members like Psychedelic Eyeball and Dave_O are popular [=LPers=] on the SA forums. Especially noticeable is Shmorky from the Website/SomethingAwful WebAnimation page TheFlashtub, who also later worked with founder Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka for [[LetsPlay/GamingGarbage his own Let's Play channel]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/EdwynTiong has now appeared in six games that were Retsufrash'ed. Thanks to ''VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy'', he's invariably referred to as "Dan [=McNeely=]".
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes[=/=]MissingEpisode: Many of the riffed videos can now only be found through the Retsupurae riffs. In some cases, the videos got removed ''because of'' the riffs.
** There's also a large amount of Retsupuraes that have disappeared from the main channel, although they can still be found on alternate sources or reuploaded by other viewers. Most of their missing episodes involved footage of the actual people they mocked, which they removed due to a new Youtube policy.

** During the ''Darkseed'' wrongpurae, slowbeef mentions he emailed Mike Dawson about the game, but accidentally insulted him by mentioning he was making fun of ''Darkseed''. Given how many people watched the video, it makes you wonder if Mike Dawson got hit with one of these.
*** ''Everything'' related to someone named Mike Dawson got hit with one after the ''Darkseed 2'' longplay.

** In episode 24, he mentions that [=LPers=] who make the "Lets Play" videos that focus on themselves with the actual game as white noise, and Lets Players who more or less just churn out whatever new or popular without any preparation are this and what he thinks is one of the main reasons companies like Nintendo actively started to claim the ad revenue from Let's Play videos.

* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: slowbeef and Diabetus discourage their fans from harassing the people they riff on. After their fans continued to ignore their demands, the main channel no longer has a comments section and, with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jl7jAQsjpuc this video]], the original video's owner had his/her name censored. This is also why the channel went into NetworkDecay with traditional videos being produced at a slower rate in favor of Retsufrashes and Wrongpuraes.
