Added DiffLines:

* InflationNegation: Briefly mentioned in his ''Christmas Shoes'' review.
-->'''Kid:''' ''[Five dollars] is a lot of money. A real whole lot.''
-->'''Necro:''' ''Yeah. During TheFifties, maybe.''
** To be fair, the movie was set during TheEighties, but even then $5 wasn't considered a "real whole lot of money".


Added DiffLines:

* OneDegreeOfSeparation: He directly references the SixDegreesOfKevinBacon game to point out how ludicrously convenient it is how every character in ''The Christmas Shoes'' just happens to know each other.

** The boy from ''The Christmas Shoes'' decides to collect cans and recycle them in order to buy the titular footwear. Necro does the math and points out that he'd need to collect 400 cans[[labelnote:*]]450 if you account for sales tax[[/labelnote]] to pull that off.

* ItsAWonderfulPlot: Discussed and parodied in his ''[[Film/TheSantaClause Santa Clause 3]]'' review.

** Said review also provides an interesting subversion: Necro's existence has practically no bearing on the world whatsoever. The only thing that changes is the fact that Devil is running the show now. [[spoiler:Of course the guy telling him this was just lying to make him miserable before killing him.]]

* TakeThat: [[https://www.facebook.com/necrocritic/posts/1027810750681599 Apparently,]] WebOriginal/TheIrateGamer once sent Necro an unsolicited video cameo, asking him to feature it in one of his reviews. He even told him what context to use the cameo in as well as suggesting what specifically to review. Needless to say, Necro was very offended by this gesture. So instead, he used the cameo clip in his Film/TheSantaClause2 review in a joke at IG's expense.
-->'''Necro:''' Not to make accusations or anything, but [Toy Santa] is one tommy-gun away from [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} blatant plagiarism]]! And believe me, as an internet reviewer, I know a thing or two about blatant plagiarism.
-->'''IG:''' ''(looking up from playing a video game)'' Are you talking about me?

* IAteWhat: PlayedWith in his WesternAnimation/VanHelsingTheLondonAssignment review, where Necro opts to drink a bottle of cyanide rather than talk about the Film/VanHelsing comic book. After seeing and hearing him writhing in absolute agony, we get this reveal:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Inverted. Film/BabyGeniuses had a scene that he considered to be this, until said scene was repeated not 5 seconds later.

* OffendingTheCreatorsOwn[[invoked]]: {{Averted}} in his Christmas Shoes review. He begins the video by directly pointing out that he is a practicing Methodist in an attempt to avoid the inevitable criticisms that he is only hating on the movie for being a Christian film.



* SillinessSwitch: The only fun he has with''[[VideoGame/VanHelsing Van Helsing: The Videogame]]'' is by toying around with the game's numerous graphics-altering cheats (which are, strangely enough, found as random collectables throughout the game).

* ScheduleSlip[[invoked]]: He's had a few "embarassingly late" holiday specials.
** As of late, there's been a tendency to have a few months between videos.
** Lampshaded in his ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTheAmericanRabbit'' review

* AuthorPhobia: The fact that Gareth suffers from Paedophobia in real life really puts certain aspects of his Film/BabyGeniuses review into perspective.
