** Arin, inspired by Ross's encouragement, intended to give the plant boss of ''VideoGame/BattleKidFortressOfPeril'' one more shot, but accidentally selected "End" instead of "Continue" at the GameOver screen. Cue {{Angrish}}.

** When Arin and Jon play FamilyFeud for the NES, they are asked to "name something a father would buy for their kids but would use themselves". Arin writes "C D Player". Model Car pops up as the correct answer.[[labelnote:Explanation]]This happens because the game searches for letters making up key words. In this case, it saw the word "car" in '''C''' D Pl'''a'''ye'''r'''.[[/labelnote]] [[FunnyMoments Their reaction is amazing.]]

* TantrumThrowing: Arin audibly hurls his controller to the floor in Part 20 of ''Sonic '06'', then [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere slams the door without uttering a word]].
** Jon has one in FamilyFeud where Arin enters "C D Player" as an answer and the game accepts it as a ''Remote Control Car''.

** ''[[{{Bloodsport}} Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball]]'' was mentioned as having been played repeatedly, but because it was made in the same Grump session as ''[[Franchise/DonkeyKong Donkey Kong's]] [[VideoGame/NintendoLand Crash Course]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Kingdom Valley]]'', known for being both ThatOneLevel and NintendoHard and thus producing a metric butt-ton of content ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and also]] ''VideoGame/MarioParty 8''), it took quite a while before it was uploaded.

** During [[MarioParty Mario Party 4]] with Jon, Arin lands on a Bowser space, which causes Baby Bowser to float down to the player hanging from a floating turtle shell. Jon points out "Shell can't float, dude." Much later on in the Steam Rolled series of the same game, Arin again steps on a Bowser space, Baby Bowser again comes down, and Ross points out "I don't want to like, burst his bubble, but I don't think turtle shells float like that."

** In return, Jon dominates Arin in the VideoGame/MarioParty 2 rematch, getting 4 stars (while nobody else had one) and then winning every bonus star but the Minigame Star (which went to CPU Luigi instead.)

* TheLoad: In every playthrough of a MarioParty title, the Grumps will set one AI player to Easy difficulty, and one to Hard. The AI player who is set to Easy will be a constantly abysmal failure at every mini-game. If the Grumps are pitted against each other in a 3-on-1 game, the Easy AI player will effectively sabotage the efforts of the team, giving the solitary Grump an easy win. This holds doubly true in 2-on-2 games: one Grump will be stuck with the Load while the other Grump will be working with TheAce.

** In contrast, two episodes (from ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic '06]]'' and ''VideoGame/MarioParty 8'') had Jon farting and Arin laughing himself silly.

* BiasSteamroller:
** In the Nintendo Land videos, the Grumps complained about Skyward Sword's controls not being as accurate as the Nintendo Land Zelda ride's - the controls are actually identical.
** Arin hates the term "{{Metroidvania}}", because he considers the first part of that word far superior to the second. (''Sonic'' #54)
--->'''Jon:''' Okay, the Metroid-y ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' games.\\
'''Arin:''' ''(bristles)'' I just detest--\\
'''Jon:''' THE ADVENTUREY... THE MORE, TH-- [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT]]-FORWARD!
** Jon has a hatred for all tutorials ([[ReadTheFreakingManual which leads to a lot of obvious moments]]), at one point [[AuthorTract going into an enraged rant]] over Monita's appearances in Nintendo Land even though he can easily just tap (-) to skip it.
** Both of them "admitted" to absolutely loathing VideoGame/HalfLife2, saying it had no direction or point. Subverted when their [[SarcasmMode complaints]] are that it lacks [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty killstreaks]] and [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim random encounters]], and they actually both love it.



* NostalgiaFilter: Arin loves all generations of Pokémon, while Jon believes only the first generation has good Pokémon designs (though the latter likes [[{{VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver}} Pokémon Silver]] best). Arin states this is because Pokémon was ridiculous in the first place; Jon says the games are overly childish and fully admits he enjoyed the games he did because he played them as a child.
** They got called out on this for their BiasSteamroller against ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' and poorly defined arguments against it; they later walked back their comments and explained their opinions better and fully admit it might well be due to nostalgia.

child.



** Many fans believe this to be the reason why Jon dislikes ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland DS''.



** Seemingly averted with Danny, who retains his joy for old (and some not very good) NES games.



* NWordPrivileges: They discuss this at one point and both of them admit that they're uncomfortable with the word, despite using any other number of swears in their work. They refer to LouisCK while discussing it and echo his opinion about it.
** It's also the only word they'll censor, often with [[SoundEffectBleep silly sound effects]].
** Arin screams the word at the top of his lungs in the second ''Animal Crossing'' episode, as a means of imitating what one might see on a message board. This leads to a {{Gag Censor}} of an elephant loudly popping onto the screen.
** In one of the Pokemon episodes, when nicknaming a Slakoth, Jon begins to spell out the word, but only get as far as "NIGG" and Arin proposes the name "NIGGJAM." They eventually end up naming it "CHINA."
** Danny calls in this to make fun of his Jewish heritage.
** In one of the Sonic 06 episodes, Jon repeatedly said the n-word while hypothetically talking about asking to destroy people's things. Barry gets increasingly more frustrated with Jon each time he edits the word out.
** At the start of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBaj9qfEnaI part 2]] of the ''Mario Party 4'' versus, Jon starts randomly imitating a JiveTurkey responding to the game's economy system, and he kicks everything off by saying the n-word uncensored.

Added DiffLines:

* RefrainFromAssuming: Arin misidentifies "Where Do We Go from Here?" by Jamiroquai as "That's the Way Love Goes". Especially funny given that (A) ''both'' phrases are in the refrain, and (B) asking "Where do I go from here?" was what got him off on a [[WaxingLyrical lyric-quoting tangent]] in the first place.


Added DiffLines:

** When he gets lost in ''Link: The Faces of Evil'', Arin starts quoting "Where Do We Go from Here?" by Jamiroquai (although [[RefrainFromAssuming he thinks the title is "That's the Way Love Goes"]]) and can't seem to stop. Eventually Dan cuts in:
--->'''Dan:''' What the fuck you talkin' about? I mean, [[GenreSavvy these are song lyrics]] but I don't know what they are.
