* InformedLoner: Egoraptor himself. He's said in interviews that he often has problems with social interaction and making small talk but in person he certainly doesn't come off that way.
** He seems to have gotten over it in recent years. See WebVideo/GameGrumps, where his social life is referenced every now and then. He's also engaged. [[TheGhost To a goose.]]

* MagnumOpusDissonance: Egoraptor claims that his best work is ''{{WebAnimation/Sequelitis}}'', due to both the time and effort he put into the episodes and the fact that he values an ability to make people think over an ability to make people laugh.

* {{Sequelitis}}: A vocal part of the fanbase consider the original [=PokeAwesome=] to be vastly superior to its sequel. [[labelnote:*]] [[{{Irony}} Hey, wait]] [[WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}} a minute!]][[/labelnote]]
* ShallowParody: While most of the videos are [[AffectionateParody Affectionate Parodies]] of the games they're making fun of, [[VideoGame/HaloReach Awesome Reach]] falls into this, being more of a TakeThat against fans of the game than it is a parody of the game itself. In fact, it doesn't even make fun of the campaign or multiplayer gameplay at all, but just makes jokes about fans treating the game like a drug or getting erections from playing it. Egoraptor even says in his video description that he hasn't played the game.

* HilariousInHindsight: Snake's (and by extention, [[AuthorAvatar Egoraptor himself's]]) adamant refusal to listen to any codec calls that aren't forced upon him by the game leads him to running headfirst into lasers, bombs, and ultimately getting killed by Psycho Mantis. This behavior seems almost prophetic when we see Arin's playstyle in WebVideo/GameGrumps.

** Not that Sequelitis isn't appreciated; it's just much, ''much'' younger (was barely a year old before ScheduleSlip hit) and so far only has three episodes, one of which is only five minutes long.

** Also [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Awesome Fantasy VII]], which supposedly satires the game's constant focus on Cloud's (and Vincent's) {{Wangst}}. However, the game itself makes it clear that Cloud's angsting isn't supposed to be taken seriously, and that he needs to grow out of it.
*** Except that the parody does exactly that. Cloud and Vincent are busy angsting and Tifa's try to pull them both out of it and bring them back to reality. Most fans who watched the parody joked that it was exactly like the game.
