** His review of Fame #1 and the questionable comments about Jew Wario using a female avatar in the Pokemon movies reviews are harder to sit through after Iron Liz came out as trans, though it's possible he was aware and she was fine with it.

* HellIsThatNoise: The ScareChord that plays over a particularly tense cliffhanger can send shivers down the spine even if you can see it coming.

** In his review of issue two of ''ComicBook/GodzillaKingdomOfMonsters'', Lewis has a bit where he dismisses the idea of the live-action ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'' movie ever coming out. Not only is it coming out, he uploaded the video onto [=YouTube=] in the wake of the massive WTHCastingAgency reaction to Creator/ScarlettJohansson being cast as the Major. Additionally, the comic features Anguirus smashing through a wall that was being built on the USA/Mexico border, which is something Creator/DonaldTrump proposed.

* NeverLiveItDown: One time, in his P O Un boxing Videos, Linkara & Viga went three hours of un boxing, before Linkara realise that he forgot to turn on the sound recording. He had to check if the sound was on, several times, in the next P O Un boxing?

** WebVideo/TheGameShowReviewer now does CGI for the show, and his work is ''amazing'' for web animation. Particular note is [[spoiler; [[TearJerker Comic Cron 1 crashing on the moon.]]]]

* HarsherInHindsight: He concludes his two-part review of ''The Rise of Arsenal'' by remarking that hopefully, DC's forthcoming (at the time) reboot will erase both ''Cry For Justice'' and this mini from continuity, resurrecting Lian Harper in the process. Later that week, DC stated that one of the changes is that Arsenal[=/=]Roy Harper will be undergoing a reduction in his age and would now be too young to have had a daughter (or at least, the Lian the readers knew) yet.
** This does mean that Cry For Justice and The Rise of Arsenal was erased. BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Linkara.

** Linkara's magic gun looks ''exactly'' like the guns from a [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger very popular Sentai]]. He's going to be very happy when that gets adapted into Power Rangers... especially since [[FridgeBrilliance he can dual-wield it with the Dragon Dagger and have it be canonical]].
*** This crosses over into HarsherInHindsight when you see his thoughts on it over on History of the Power Rangers.

** [[spoiler: Linkara made it '''very''' clear in the "Top 15 Comics I'll Never Review" video that he would ''never'' review "[[ComicBook/OneMoreDay One More Day]]", even putting it at the #2 spot]]. And then comes the 200th episode...

** Back in November 2011 in his ''Pokemon: The Electric Tale of Pikachu'' review, Linkara wished for a Pokemon Fighting game where you actually control the Pokemon (akin the VideoGame/SuperSmashBros). Jump to 2014 where VideoGame/PokkenTournament is announced. (Although so far it's for Japanese Arcades.)
** In his review of ''Captain Electron #1'' from 2012, he comments that if he ever changes his outfit, he's going to find a way to include a top hat. In 2014, he did change his outfit... though it doesn't have a top hat; he still wears his [[NiceHat trademark trilby]].
*** Though, he does briefly wear one, in his Review of Power Man and Iron Fist #79.

* NightmareRetardant: Okay, once the Entity was finally out in the open, it had a lot of really creepy lines with a neat voice filter effect, and the way it kept glitching out and teleporting around the room was genuinely creative and freaky. [[spoiler:But it's in the form of '90s Kid. Linkara already has such an adorable baby face and '90s Kid has such dumb fashion sense it dulled the edge of the horror a bit.]]

*** The sets also leave a lot to be desired. For instance, the bar at the beginning has a bookshelf off to the side; the bridge of Vyce's ship looks desolate and made of cardboard; and the space station's control room is clearly someone's basement (which is [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]]).

*** The effects used for Mechakara's torn up face and later, his endo-skeleton, look worse than the CGI (and that's saying something). The latter simply being a classroom skeleton model painted silver, with tin cans for shoulders.

** During the Star Trek/Green Lantern: Spectrum war story segment [[spoiler: There's a brief moment of relief from Nimue and Pollo trying to assure Linkara that the Entity is dead. Then the engines start going haywire, Comicron-1 crashes on the moon, and Linkara and the gang have to escape in the Vigilant. The episode concludes with Linkara being sure that the Entity is still alive, and the all too familiar musical cue ends things with a final shot of the wrecked Comicron-1]]

*** None of these are helped by the film being shot in 720p, as opposed to 1080p or higher. Leading one to wonder ''where'' exactly the money went.
