Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: He expresses a great disdain towards incestuous relationships (i.e. [[BrotherSisterIncest siblings]], [[ParentalIncest parents and children]], [[KissingCousins cousins]], etc.), whether it's subtext or openly stated in the film.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakoutCharacter: It's probably safe to say that Phelous never anticipated how much both he and his fans would come to love his interpretation of Beauty's father from the Creator/GoodTimes version of ''Beauty and the Beast''. "Old Man" now has constant cameos in other reviews, fan art, gifs and memes, and even his own spinoff series in "Old Man Reads Creepypastas."

* EvilCounterpart: Several; there's Phelous D1 from the ''Ghost Ship'' and ''Dawn of the Living Dead'' review, a Phelous version of the villain from ''Incubus'', a ''SilentHill''-style [[FanDisservice Nurse Phelous]] from his review of ''Film/SilentHill Homecoming'' and ''Case 39'', and the romantic comedy reviewer "Selouph".

** The man takes his gaming pretty seriously. He ranted at length about the ''Film/ResidentEvil'' and ''SilentHill'' [[AdaptationDecay films]] (particularly Dahlia Gillespie's portrayal as a sympathetic character in the first ''SilentHill'' film, and Jill Valentine's [[DemotedToExtra demotion to sidekick]] in the ''Resident Evil'' films), and he was mildly irked by the [[PacManFever inaccuracies]] [[HollywoodGameDesign about videogames]] in ''Film/StayAlive''. He likewise was happy when Barry Burton, one of his favorite characters from ''Resident Evil'' got killed in ''Retribution''.

*** The partying cop from the CabinFever series earns an especially large chunk of his disdain when he reviews those movies.

** He often gets annoyed by large amounts of [[JumpScare jump scares]] in movies. However, in his review of Film/JacobsLadder, he did point out a JumpScare done right; a surprise shot that's been built up and has relevance to the movie's theme.

* BrokeTheRatingScale: ''A Serbian Film'' does this for Phelous much like it did for Creator/BradJones. He states he'd watch any of the other movies he's reviewed repeatedly, even ''FiveAcrossTheEyes'', instead of ''A Serbian Film''.

*** [[spoiler: Look again at the intro to his ''SeventhMoon'' review. He's looking in the mirror, saying "The face in the mirror, it wasn't me!" with a terrorized expression on his face. He's foreshadowing how in the Jacob's Ladder review, he will see his true dead self in the mirror at the end, but is still unable to accept it yet.]]
*** [[spoiler: Ultimately subverted in his "WesternAnimation/AladdinAndTheAdventureOfAllTime" review which takes place right after his "Jacob's Ladder" review. At the beginning of the review, he is lying on the floor supposedly dead, but then gets up right afterwards to start talking about the film.]]

Every cameo reviewer who had so far popped in to let him know how unoriginal and dull his 100th episode had been so far start clapping as well, resulting in a [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing massive outpour of joy that Paris Hilton is dead.]]

** In ''TurtlesForever'', he points out that 1987 Raphael's second breaking the fourth wall gag ''was'' pretty funny, but by that point was too pissed about the lack of respect with which the 1987 turtles were handled to laugh at it.

* OverreactingAirportSecurity: Phelous is particularly baffled by the complete lack of this in ''Crocodile 2'', as the bad guys manage to sneak on a suitcase full of stolen money, handguns, and cigars. What makes it worse is that the movie is set in 2002 when airport security was at its peak and they hid the handguns ''in their socks''.
