* ''Game Grumps VS'', in which the hosts of Game Grumps compete against each other instead of trading off or playing together.
* ''WebVideo/SteamTrain'', which follows the same format as its parent show, but features PC games instead of console titles. It is hosted by Ross O'Donovan (of [[http://www.youtube.com/user/RubberNinja Rubber Ninja Animation]]), with guest-stars switching between Arin, Danny, Barry, and Suzy (and sometimes two or more).
* ''Steam Rolled'', in which four players compete against each other in both console and PC games. Arin and Ross are regulars, while the other two players are filled in alternately by Danny, Suzy Berhow (Arin's wife), and Barry Kramer (the Grumps' first editor and uploader, a role now taken by Kevin Abernathy). With the introduction of Grumpcade, Steam Rolled will exclusively feature PC games.
* ''WebVideo/TableFlip'', a formerly Polaris-exclusive show in which Suzy, Barry, and several guest-stars play tabletop and card games while dressed in period clothing.
* ''Grumpcade'', a show where any combination of the hosts can play console games (except Arin and Danny, since that's just Game Grumps). Like ''Table Flip'', this show is also welcome to guests outside the main group. On November 5, 2015, Brian Wecht (Ninja Brian, the remaining member of Ninja Sex Party and Starbomb) made his Game Grumps debut on a Grumpcade replay of ''VideoGame/BurgerTime''.
* ''Grump Out'', where the Grumps upload miscellaneous content such as behind-the-scenes, live-action bits and just about anything else they can come up with. It is hosted on its [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAQ0o3l-H3y_n56C3yJ9EHA own separate channel.]]
* ''Guild Grumps'', where Ross challenges Arin, Danny, Barry and Suzy to play WorldOfWarcraft and get from level 90 to level 100. The catch is that Ross is supposedly the only expert of the game, while the rest never played the game before. It is filmed in a RealityShow format which includes gameplay footage and the group complaining about the whole situation. HilarityEnsues.

* AesopAmnesia: The Grumps will often forget about important abilities they have in ''Sonic '06'', like what Silver can and can't use psychokinesis on.
** In ''Sonic Boom'', Arin forgets entirely that Amy can perform a triple jump. When Danny asks about whether she has one, Arin denies it and then shows Dan that she can't by pressing the wrong jump button.
** In ''Sonic Adventure DX'' Arin finds early on in Knuckles's story that enemies can also be holding emerald shards. He continues to react in amazement when it happens again two more times after accidentally killing enemies and getting more shards.

For example, in part 10 of ''Super Mario Bros 3.'', when Arin gets the tanooki suit, Danny busts out the line 'MUST I BE A RACOON TO GET INSIDE YOUR TANOOKI?' from Luigi's Ballard, and even overtly states that it's forshadowing something.

* FormerlyFat: The beginning of the show had them talk about drinking soda and eating candy bars a lot. Over the course of the year since it started, they've talked about health food (though they eat out a lot), and both go to the gym often. Jon in particular has lost weight, while Arin gained some before losing it too.
* FourLinesAllWaiting: Well, eight lines would be more accurate. They play through multiple games at once, but only upload two episodes per day at most (the channel uploads at least three now, one being {{WebAnimation/SteamTrain}}'s stuff), and typically focus on a select pool of games per week, cycling through their options as they go. This leads to some games being neglected for a while without being officially abandoned, only to make a resurgence later on.

*** Of course, as mentioned in their Secret ''Secret of Mana Mana'' episode, whenever a fan complains that they complain too much, they can always use their title as a 'Get-out-of-Jail-Free' "Get-out-of-Jail-Free" card.
** Arin releases unleashes his Grump side halfway through the Super ''Super Mario Sunshine Sunshine'' campaign. The fifth Harbor stage pisses him off to the verge of a RageQuit. [[PlayedForLaughs They then play it off as a "mental breakdown."]]

Arin states this is because Pokemon was ridiculous in the first place and still feels a childlike wonder in playing the game; Jon says the games are overly childish and fully admits he enjoyed the games he did because he played them as a child.

When they play the second, they find a LOT more problems than in the original, and [[MovingTheGoalposts Jon suddenly insists that the third is better.]] This is despite the fact that Jon previously placed the third game lower on his Top 20 SNES Games than the other two ([=DKC3=] placed at 11, DKC placed at 8 and [=DKC2=] placed at 4)

** The Grumps explained that the reason most of their games went unfinished is because they didn't want to bore the audience with replaying things they've already taken care of. It took them until Sonic 06 to realize they could use a FastForwardGag to gloss over any gameplay they had to redo, as well as use the lack of camera focus to put more effort in gaming smart rather than gaming funny. This is one of the main reasons Sonic 06 is their longest-running series so far and is the most consistently updated.

** Averted again in the beginning of Pokemon Fire Red Part 109 where Danny specifically asks if Jon would be upset that Fire Red has now beaten out SonicTheHedgehog2006 as longest-running Game Grumps series.
** In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' Part 36, Jon is brought up again when Dan mentions the [[ConspiracyTheory Conspiracy Theories]] surrounding his departure (and the idea that Dan had something to do with it), saying that they never bothered him and that they're all completely untrue.
** In May 2015, Arin and Danny started playing ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' -- a game that Arin and Jon started but never completed. Danny himself brings this up, saying that he's addresses the ElephantInTheLivingRoom.
* UnreliableCanon: They are known for this. WebVideo/JonTron and Egoraptor have said that Arin's "suicide" at the end of their Rugrats in Paris: The Movie episode is canon in the game grumps canon and Arin is now a ghost. This is especially confusing since Arin has killed himself in other videos since including Telletubbies and 2 episodes of Table Flip.

** Beating the FinalBoss in the ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' campaign of Sonic 06 is completely disregarded for a conversation about ''Series/TheXFiles'', the JerseyDevil, and what scares people on a primal basis. It's not until the ClosingCredits are about to run that the two realize what's going on.
** Danny doesn't make a big deal about [[spoiler: Arin committing suicide]] in the ''Teletubbies'' episode until the very last minute.

* VerbalTic: Arin has a habit of saying "Fucking..." before his sentences, especially if he's joking around. In the Jeopardy playthrough alone he says "Fucking" literally almost 150 times.
** Jon likes to say 'Legitimately' or 'Legit'.

** Arin and Jon both like using "ass" as a kind of pseudo-adjective, such as "[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie sad-ass bear child]]", "[[Franchise/DonkeyKong Donkey-ass Kong]]", and "UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan[[Film/SpaceJam -ass]] [[FascinatingEyebrow face]]". They do it so much that somebody made a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZclMfhPmbw compilation video]]... that runs for ''23 minutes''.
** Danny has actually repeatedly acknowledged that he uses the word "totally" far too frequently. His go to insult seems to be anything involving multiple dicks like "Bag of dicks" or "Go climb a wall of dicks".

* VisualPun: A bit of trivia that turned into a RunningGag -- [[RefugeInVulgarity because of course it did]] -- during the ''VideoGame/SonicBoom'' playthough was that echidna penises have four heads. [[OrSoIHeard According to Arin, at least.]] One cutscene towards the end happens to frame Knuckles' tail from an... unfortunate angle. Dan asks Kevin for a slow-mo replay of that scene; said replay has been edited to add photos of his head, Arin's, and two of the other Game Grumps stars (can someone verify which ones?) at the end of it.

** Jon has won almost all ''Vs'' challenges after the first one, where he [[RunningGag legitimately]] had controller problems. He also didn't do to well in the second round of Brawl matches, but he claimed this was because he was tired.
** Jon initially did terrible in Clayfighter, but at the start of the final round, he admitted that he didn't actually know the controls to the game. [[StatusQuoIsGod Arin did let Jon beat him up while explaining the controls in the final match]].

* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: In the ''VideoGame/HeartOfDarkness'' playthrough, Arin's co-host takes great pleasure in laughing at Arin's breakdown, causing him to yell "Danny, PLEASE!" in despair. Given that Arin generally only calls him "Dan" (or "Daniel" when pretending to be mad), the Not-So-Grump realizes just how seriously the game is affecting him and apologizes. While still laughing hysterically.

* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: Arin has a [[FreakOut much more]] [[UnstoppableRage violent]] version of this in part 32 of ''Super Mario Sunshine''. After repeatedly failing [[ThatOneLevel the pachinko level]], he ''finally'' gets all the Red Coins ... but ''just'' as he is about to get the Shine Sprite, the game glitches out and sends Arin falling to his death.

* {{Supergroup}}: Non-musical example: Arin and Jon alone had impressive profiles prior to becoming the Grumps.

Even after Jon left there's Arin, (and a lesser extent Barry, as Jon's editor (Barry), editor), to both members of Ninja Sex Party (Danny and later Brian), another prominent Ross from his Newgrounds animator (Ross), and a makeup artist who has a solid record of Youtube animations, and Suzy for her own fashion and arts and crafts videos on [=YouTube=] (Suzy).Youtube. Their current editors, Matt and Ryan from [=SuperMega=] (and former work with Markiplier), have only padded the Grumps' supergroup status.

* BritishAccents:
** Grant's accent is so thick that Jon can barely understand what he's saying.
** Whenever Danny and Arin [[BriefAccentImitation try to make fun of Ross]]' (original) Aussie accent they somehow end up doing one of these. They lampshade this in ''Disney Princess: Colors of the Wind''; Arin asks why Danny sounds like a [[Music/TheBeatles Beatle]] whenever he imitates Ross.
** Jacob Anderson (a Brit) starts his guest episode doing an impression of an American doing a British accent. Arin and Danny join in with their own attempt at British accents.
