** Spoony proves himself to be this again in ''Nightstake'', when he rolls straight 10s on 6 10-sided dice to stake Invisible Jason's [[VampireTheMasquerade Assamite]] [[GratuitousNinja Ninja]] vampire with [[BulletTime Cele]][[SuperSpeed rity]] through the chest with a thrown sharpened police nightstick; the odds of this succeding being literally {{Million To One|Chance}}

** [[UpToEleven Taken even further]] in his ''Epic Rant''. As the title implies, it's a meandering (but entertaining) '''four part''' mess of topics, starting off as a discussion of super hero role-playing games, then going on to discuss things like ''RPG/CallOfCthulhu'' or ''Babylon5'', ending on Spoony talking about a video game based on ''LordOfTheRings''.

** The dragon scroll plot from ''Shadowrun: The Code'' got aborted when the party tripped the alarm and, rather than doing the sensible thing of grabbing the scroll and bolting, they turned it into a senselessly brutal hostage situation that ended with Spoony having to pull the Cyber Psycho Squad [[note]] Basically, SWAT officers that have nearly lost their minds from excessive cybernetics that kill people that have.[[/note]] from the ''{{TabletopGame/Cyberpunk}}'' series to wait in ambush in the sewers and kill most of them and grievously injure the rest.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Spoony thinks this was in effect in the book for "The Apocalypse Stone". To summarize: A demon who's pissed off at the party sets it up so they enter a friendly-looking tavern and eat some pork buns (or rather, [[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies LONG pork buns]]); however, the text encourages the DM to fudge things so the players don't actually eat them. The fudging doesn't make sense ([[VoodooShark and would actually makes the players more suspicious]]) and completely contradicts the rest of the story (which has the demon leave a note for the players where he reveals the buns' "secret ingredient"), so Spoony figures an editor threw in the text as an "escape hatch" without the original writers' knowledge.

** Matthew the [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything "Thief"]] placed most of his ranks into tumbling and pickpocketing. This made him effective at stabbing people but as for every other practical purpose a thief had, [[RunningGag he's not that kind of thief.]]

* SeriousBusiness: "Dem Bones" is an hour-long video concerning types of dice players use, Spoony understandably noting various types of dice he hates due to being oddly shaped, difficult to read or otherwise unfair or obstructive to gameplay. More humorous is a few minutes he spends on ''how'' players roll their dice, calling out players who roll particular ways as pussies and encouraging them to roll with some enthusiasm and emotion. A follow-up video talks about dice cups and dice towers and his declaration that if you know a roleplayer, they make great gifts, and they will be the envy of their friends for at least a night when they bring them to their game.

** "The Dungeon Master's Secret Weapon" is about how if you steal from the party, no matter how little it is worth or how insignificant it is, the party ''will'' go to illogical extremes for revenge.
--> '''Party''': Find these motherfuckers! Track 'em! Track these bastards! They're wearing our boots...
--> '''Spoony''': Well, probably not. Your feet are way bigger.

** Spoony also says that the emponomous module in "The Apocalypse Stone" is this, considering how the campaign is apparently unbeatable and also not only destroys the entire setting its played in, but all other dimensions in it as well. In the video he describes an occasion he used it to kill some incredibly over-powered PlayerCharacters.

* PoisonAndCureGambit: In the ''Shadowrun: The Code'' video, Spoony goes over the Shadowtech book and points to a substance called Carcerands, which is used to make a time-delayed release of a substance into a person's body. He said its a great way for a DM to [[{{Railroading}} force players to undertake a mission they ordinarily wouldn't accept]]. He also speculates it would be a great way for [[SexSlave pimps]] and [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer drug dealers]] to force people to work for them by giving them a temporary antidote which prolongs the time it takes for the poison to be released but doesn't get it completely out of their system.
