* 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.

* FanHater: Done tongue-in-cheek in some of the earlier videos, but played straight with [[HaloReach Awesome Reach]].

* ShallowParody: While most of the videos are [[AffectionateParody Affectionate Parodies]] of the games they're making fun of, [[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.

** 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.

Discussion on main page.
** 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.

Just some edits since it's now eight months old.
* NonSequitur: The most common complaint of his recent [=PokeAwesome2=] is that Arin takes pains to set up a final punch-line, and then the final punch line both makes absolutely no sense and is just a sex joke.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: Egoraptor claims that his best work is 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. ** Not that Sequelitis isn't appreciated; it's just much, ''much'' younger (barely a year old) and so far only has three episodes, one of which is only five minutes long.
