Dan's videos span a lot of different topics and formats, though he rarely does straight-forward vlogging. He makes videos describing his past failings with self-deprecating humor, discussing topics he finds relevant/interesting, and truth-or-dare type videos. Most of the humor which is used is in a sarcastic/ironic way. He often uses a skit format that makes sense when you find out that he's done a lot of theater and has/had aspirations of being an actor. Oddly, he was getting a law degree before he decided that University probably wasn't for him.

He also has a gaming channel with WebVideo/AmazingPhil, over at WebVideo/DanAndPhilGames. All tropes relating to those videos should go on the channel's own page.

** Dan tends to say "zazzed" for "excited" (which Tyler Oakley thinks sounds like his dad), and will often preface descriptions of actions with "cheeky", i.e., "cheeky spon".
** When a video gets weird or awkward or an EpicFail happens, he'll often say "delet this".

* OldShame: [[invoked]]Subverted. While Dan is definitely uncomfortable and embarrassed watching his older videos, he can appreciate them as a part of his creative development despite the cringing.

* ScunthorpeProblem: His old username was also problematic in that it could cause this, i.e., "Dani Snot on Fire", and he, Phil, and fans have since made jokes about this.



* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[invoked]] Another reason for his username change: he was tired of news outlets referring to his handle with more conventional formatting (i.e. "[=DanIsNotOnFire=]" or "Dan Is Not On Fire"), as opposed to how he styled it (with no spacing or caps.) This peeve is mentioned before the actual name change in Internet Support Group 7, and the intent to change the username is brought up with it.

* ThoseTwoGuys: Contrary to most Website/YouTube duos, Dan & Phil originally weren't an double-act and rose to fame on their own respective channels. However, it is becoming rarer and rarer to see one without the other: they live together, very frequently appear in each other's videos, have created two collaborative side channels, got their own radio show on [=BBC1=], were offered a dual cameo by Disney in the UK version of ''Disney/BigHero6'', have hosted award shows together, and pretty much always appear side by side for interviews or conventions.

This is eventually lampshaded by them pretending they are surprise special guests on each other's videos, when it obviously isn't a surprise at all.

** His first video. He claims that he can't be in the same room when it's playing, and his friends will play it near him just to rile him up [[OldShame because he cringes so hard about it.]]

* AscendedFanboy: He spent years watching [=YouTuber=] [[WebVideo/AmazingPhil Phil Lester]], until eventually becoming friends (and later, roommates) with Phil through incessant tweeting and video commenting (an unlikely turn-of-events that he would later parody in a mock how-to video). Dan told Phil that he'd always wanted to make videos on YouTube, but just didn't think he would be any good. With Phil's encouragement, Dan gave it a go anyway and the rest, as they say, is history.

* GoneHorriblyRight: His "roast-yourself challenge" video, being a rap self-diss track, and the April Fools "Dan and Phil Crafts" channel, as both are complete parodies that achieved legitimate success. The former had gone into the music charts after someone illegally uploaded it to [=iTunes=], which then caused it to be ranked at #7 in the hip-hop charts. The latter ended up getting Dan and Phil a silver play button from YouTube due to the amount of subscribers.
