** In his "The Unbearable Loneliness of Being Right on the Internet" live panel, he brings up the "Skeptic Asshole Singularity", which many skeptics like himself end up sucked into, almost including himself, and he cries out in despair when Sam Harris and UsefulNotes/RichardDawkins end up crossing the "Assholevent Horizon". [[Creator/PennAndTeller Penn Jillette]] almost passes into it, but thankfully pulls out at the last second since "it is possible to change your tone."

Additionally, he shows other [=YouTube=] skeptics [=Thunderf00t=], Sargon Of Akkad, Armoured Skeptic, and WebVideo/TheAmazingAtheist as having passed into the singularity.

** This is [[DiscussedTrope the main topic discussed]] in "The Undebunkable", where Captain D explains how [[AluminumChristmasTrees sometimes outlandishly-appearing things can be in fact real,]] and how mistrusting and denying everything on the basis of "it looks fake"is ultimately unhelpful and sometimes flat-out ''wrong.''

* DaydreamSurprise: Happens in "Rush Hour Explanation". Captain D and Mr. Flare are chatting and addressing the audience as if on a celebrity talk show, until the convivial atmosphere is broken when Mr. Flare claims the vehicles and pedestrians passing within inches of one another on a crosswalk were all stunt performers. Cap angrily calls Mr. Flare out, before going into a detailed explanation of the digital compositing tricks used to make the video. As the explanation concludes, Mr. Flare snaps Captain D out of his reverie and the friendly chat resumes as if the previous few minutes never occurred. May count as a [[DreamWithinADream daydream within a dream]] as the two then sign off with an incoherent string of pseudoscientific nonsense about astrological quantum chemtrails, then the scene cuts to the two of them unconscious on the set surrounded by clouds of green gas and a siren warning about a "credulin leak", so the whole chat show sequence may have been a hallucination.

* DisasterDominoes: At the end of "Miss Ping Debunk", Cap bats a ping-pong ball off screen, which breaks something, leading to a series of series of escalating sounds of destruction ending in the entire studio collapsing around him.

* RatingsStunt: Spoofed in the episode "Fantasy Files Explanation", which opens with Captain D analysing his [=YouTube=] viewer statistics and concluding the best way to boost his audience is to spice his show up with gratuitous 3D, [[StylisticSuck cheesy green-screen effects]] (despite the show already using very competent green-screen effects), and a topic chosen to appeal to the young male demographic.
