*** Interestingly, most [[LegendOfTheFiveRings L5R]] players would point out most Cranes ''aren't'' duelists. They're ''courtiers'', which makes the whole thing look even more like they were either deliberately griefing Spoony or [[{{Hypocrite}} just as clueless on setting details as he was]].

** In "They Duel. That's What They Do." he gets involved in a ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'' RPG. Trying to play it like a regular fantasy setting gets him almost immediately murdered by his own party for violating major social taboos he didn't know about. It's heavily implied they set him up, since he knew ''nothing'' about the setting and they wheedled him into playing anyway.

** In ''Age of Manure'', Spoony warns against specializing in exotic weapons, it's better to go with swords, daggers, bows or similar "boring" weapons because [=DMs=] will use those as loot at the end of the dungeons.

* ManifestoMakingMalcontent: Invoked by Spoony in regards to "Crazy Mike", whom he characterizes as a kind of guy you'd expect to be working on a manifesto, to illustrate how crazy he was.

* UnreliableNarrator: Surprisingly, a lot of Spoony's tales of old seem to be quite half-remembered. While the general story might remain the same, many details change already between the blog versions of tales like Leaping Wizards and the Toilet Pizza, he openly admits to having mixed up a lot of details in Tandem's Last Ride... Add to that some poor knowledge of certain books and modules (Castle Greyhawk was NOT written by Gary Gygax, it was a parody module written by Mike Breault and John Pickens, the D&D Rules Cyclopedia isn't an Original D&D sourcebook, it's a D&D Basic book), one really should be taking a lot of the things he covers with a grain of salt.

* AprilFoolsDay: 4/1/2013 featured a video where he continues a story from a long-previous video, which turns out to just be a retelling of ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'' with Spoony in the place of Ash, masquerading itself as an interview with Gary Gygax. He purposefully accentuates all the things someone could dislike about his show, he swears often and nonchalantly, he tells Oreo to be as disruptive as possible, suddenly reads from the [[BlatantLies NC-17]] cut of the ''Zantabulous Zorcerer of Zo'' [[TheMovie movie]] from TheEighties starring Creator/DavidWarner as the Zorcerer, an RPG that requires owning a different, rare, expensive, and likely otherwise unrelated book, cost Spoony over 400 dollars, and has images of [[BlatantLies naked children]], which he of course cannot show. He then tries to show the camera the pages tiny text, so as the audience can read it, while shaking the book. At the end he claims that Crazy Mike, the DM, died. He was struck by lightning indoors, [[ThisIsSpinalTap leaving only some kind of green gelatinous blob]], then leaves, saying he's going to masturbate furiously to a stuffed dog toy.
