* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: While normally pretty lively and outrageous, he's made some videos with an entirely serious tone, discussing heavy life issues or apologies for poor decisions in his early content, and even defending himself when under attack online. He has done enough of these notably subdued serious videos to completely subvert them with videos delivering the shocking news that...he stages his video thumbnails. [[MoodWhiplash Cue filming compilation.]]

to:

* NiceGuy: Shane is an incredibly kind and generous person beneath his outlandish jokes, giving lavish gifts and surprises to those he cares about and seeking to understand different people and experiences with his videos.

[[MoodWhiplash Cue filming compilation.]]]] In the defense against a particularly nasty media attack, Shane makes it very clear he's speaking truthfully with no pretense by declaring himself as Shane Yaw, his real last name.

* DisappearedDad: Unfortunately. While he initially vilified his father and expressed his angst through heavy-handed videos, he's since realized that the separation was probably the best, and when he reached out to reconnect with his father, a good deal of repair was done to their relationship, with Shane seeing a lot in common and understanding that the situation was complicated and just happened to be unfair to him.

* QuoteMine: A scandal was started when an attack video quoted some (soon self-confessed to be tastless and wrong) jokes Shane made years back about pedophilia, while removing all of the parts in the recording where he makes it clear he is joking and such behavior is truly disgusting. Since Shane had proof and tackled the issue fairly quickly with an apology video, the internet was quickly on his side, but it still caused some damage to his image for those who didn't do more research.

* VerbalTic: Things he really likes are "everything", and he constantly genders inanimate objects as "she". [[TotallyRadical He supposedly uses cool young slang ironically]], but [[BecomingTheMask it seems to have invaded his natural vocabulary]], so "shook", "queen", and "lit" and the like often come up during his excitable/energetic moods.

** His inferiority to [[WebVideo/DanAndPhilGames Dan and Phil]]. Sometime this extends to Ryland, Lisa and even his pets being said to prefer or be more attracted to them.

** Shane's exasperation with Garrett's ''Literature/HarryPotter'' obsession, often asking people to not even bring up the series around him because he doesn't want to deal with the fan talk that will start up.


Added DiffLines:

* StepfordSmiler: He's revealed that his post-sketch-comedy period of food videos and lifehack and beauty product reviews was a time of significant creative depression for him, and that he really started to feel the passion for making videos again once he started doing more casual videos and serious videos about his past.

* AndADietCoke: Shane can be seen drinking diet soda in nearly all of his tasting videos, no matter how many calories are already in the food he's eating.

* PhraseCatcher: Garrett regularly exclaims "Shane!" disapprovingly whenever the latter does something dumb, to the point that it's basically Garrett's CatchPhrase.



* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Ryland is the Straight Man to Shane's Wise Guy in most of their appearance. Even when joining in the act, Ryland is usually the one that asking sensible questions, making relatable observations, react or snark to Shane's antic. Cross into OnlySaneMan when Shane made videos that contain other [=YouTubers=], with commenters noting that when Garrett and Drew are involved, Ryland takes the role of "sensible mom" in the group.
* UglyGuyHotWife: This is how Shane sees himself and his boyfriend Ryland, respectively. Ryland thinks the opposite.

** Garrett is sometimes the Straight Man to Shane's Wise Guy. He exclaims "Shane!" when the aforementioned does something snarky or rude to the point that it's his CatchPhrase. They're both equally insane, though, so they don't qualify as RedOniBlueOni.
* UglyGuyHotWife: This is how Shane sees himself and his boyfriend Ryland, respectively. Ryland thinks the opposite. Subverted in that they're '''both''' gorgeous

* DudeNotFunny: Shane's jokes will sometimes surprise ''him'' with their darkness, and he'll note it if he thinks he might have gone past comedy.



* GagLips: A ridiculous beauty product he tried out was a mouth stretcher shaped as these, and when he put it in, the resulting look was so striking that he created a character, Kirsten, from the image.

* AmbiguousGender: Queen Shane might be an exaggerated snobbish version of Shane and mentions having a male body, but also wears a tiara and fluffy coat and has dramatically different mannerisms. Shane's catch-all use of feminine pronounce for things and people doesn't make it easier. It's likely this problem is just due to it being wild improvisation with little tying down the character.

* {{Adorkable}}: Shane has his moments but his boyfriend Ryland is a definite example. Their friend Garrett also qualifies when 8t comes to just about any topic.
