** A particularly epic version of this happens in ''Video Games!'', which crosses into PaintingTheMedium, as Board James is harassed and partially aided by the WebVideo/AngryVideoGameNerd. [[spoiler: Only for, in the conclusion, Board James just gives up, and walks out of the room, transforming into the Nerd as he enters the 'set' of the Nerd videos...]]

* MythArc: At first the series was just an episodic collection of board game reviews, but James eventually created a single overarching storyline which retroactively applies to even the earliest episodes. To sum up, [[spoiler: Board James was a murderer sentenced to death before the series stated, and what we're seeing is him wandering through the afterlife, which takes form from the board games he played as a child and is shaped by his own subconscious. Mike and Bootsy are poor souls trapped in there with him, subject to his whims and murderous tendencies until they realize they can stop him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ManipulativeEditing: Towards the end of the "[=DragonStrike=]" episode when James [[ItMakesSenseInContext asks the VHS host if he should cast a death spell on the Teletubby outside his window]], the host answers "of course!" However, that clip is taken from a different portion of the VHS tape.

Cut back to the present day, where James finds himself alone, realizing that Mike and Bootsy never existed.]]
