* BasementDweller: What the title of the show and the persona of Grenier allude to, once gone though CulturalTranslation: the French equivalent of a HollywoodNerd would be expected to live in the attic rather than in the basement.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Invoked in the ''Cool World'' episode, in which [=JdG=] notices that several of the movie's videogame adaptation prominently features Holli (one of them even includes a disk which only contains an animation of her dancing), despite her not being the main character.
* {{BFG}}: For the final action sequence of the ''Platoon'' / ''Metal Gear'' video, [=JdG=] carries an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MG_42 MG 42]]. He clarifies in the comments that it is a real one, and damn heavy.

* BreadAndCircuses: In the "Moi President" videos, the Olympic Games, Tour de France and Euro football tournaments are used to increase the President's absymal approval rating.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: In his ''Looney Tunes'' game review: When talking about bad ''Looney Tunes'' games, he mentions that there's "games with shitty controls, games that are impossibly hard, and games with shitty controls that are impossibly hard."

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Unlike the ruthless, if not sadistic yet visibly competent rulers from the Bazar's other narrative Let's Plays, there is Antonio Garavo, El Presidente of Tropico. He looks at first glance like a well-meaning but bumbling and pretty inept demagogue who loves making bloated and rather silly speeches (like [[ItMakesSenseInContext praising the emancipatory virtues of bananas]]), wrote what can be '''charitably''' described as softcore porn ''Film/JamesBond'' self-insert fanfictions while fancying himself as a great writer of spy fiction, made Tropican children learn reading with the aforementioned books, and at times seems more interested in crafting and testing new smoothies than actually governing his country. Yet at the same time, he manages to be constantly reelected '''without''' rigging elections, thwarts so many attempted invasions, rebellions and military coups than by the late fifties, they have become so much a routine that the very blasé president is [[CasualDangerDialog watching and commenting them from his palace balcony]], managed to build a spy network efficient enough to teach him a bunch of US military secrets (which he then spills during interviews), and despite the state of nearly constant civil war manages to maintain a functioning economy and advanced research infrastructure which allows Tropico to build a working nuclear power plant one year BEFORE the Shippingport Atomic Power Station goes online.\\\
Of course, since the eighth episode reveals that [[spoiler:the CIA instructor whose classes serve as the FramingDevice of the series was probably turned into a pro-Tropico DeepCoverAgent by Garavo's [[LuxuryPrisonSuite very lenient]] penal policy and liberal use of smoothies, the whole series might be an elaborate propaganda ploy meant to make the young recruits -- as well as the audience -- sympathetic to Tropico's strongman]]. Overlaps with BewareTheSillyOnes: Whether he's a WideEyedIdealist who nonetheless [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure excels at politics]], a Machiavellian strongman [[spoiler:who managed to plant a DoubleAgent at the heart of the CIA where he uses his ServileSnarker schtick about the great many times the USA failed to live up to its lofty principles to make the next generation of recruits less than enthusiastic about helping overthrow El Presidente]] or [[WellIntentionedExtremist both]] at [[PragmaticVillainy the same time]], he's way more formidable than his bumbling outward personality hints at.

* NeverMessWithGranny: Camille Silverberg, despite being past 70 in the Renaissance, is challenged to and accepts a duel, immediately pumping iron for a week to get ready for the swordfight. When she learns the duel is with pistols, she goes ahead anyway and tanks two shots before having the man murdered in the street just after. She later obtains an extra twenty years of life, not by making a DealWithTheDevil, but the devil making a deal with ''her''
--> You give me an extra twenty years, and I let you walk out of here with your balls still attached to your groin!

* NinjaProp: A casting variation in "El Presidente", the ''Bazar du Grenier'' LetsPlay for ''VideoGame/{{Tropico}} 5''. Since all the web videos work on a limited cast, it's usual for Fred to play several roles. [[spoiler:So it's a genuine surprise when the CIA instructor who narrate the whole story as a FramingEpisode, and the CIA spy who got captured by Garavo's regime in the '50s, happen to be actually the same person.]]
