** Spoony is obviously no fan of {{Villain Protagonist}}s, feeling that they're usually created an excuse for player(s) to act like [[ChaoticStupid violent, psychopathic assholes]] and disrupt the game ForTheLulz. He devoted one whole video ("So You Want to Be Evil") to shooting down the concept[[note]]Though he says he's be okay with Evil characters who still have a conscience[[/note]], spends portions of several ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' videos complaining about how the current ''WorldOfDarkness'' setting practically forces you to play a completely unsympathetic character, and of course "Shadowrun: The Code" is all about him taking his revenge on a party who went kill- and torture-happy for no good reason.

* {{Hypocrite}} In "Tandem's Last Ride", he talks about how you should never refer to someone by class, saying "You don't know I'm a Thief; you've never seen me take anything." He basically takes the stance that no one in-game has seen his (or anyone else's) character sheet, so they don't know exact details of said character. Yet come "Where have all the [[LawfulGood Lawful Goods]] Gone?", he suggests that the characters should treat the Lawful Good characters better than everyone else (get asked to join the investigation, the local baron gives them favors, etc.)[[note]]AD&D didn't have a reputation mechanic, so he is essentially asking for the GM to show favoritism. Later games like Tabletop/Pathfinder did have such rules, but they were always an optional thing[[/note]] Spoony, if they can't see your character sheet to see that you're a Thief, why are they allowed to look at your character sheet to see that you're Lawful Good?

* CriticalResearchFailure: Whenever Spoony wants to see how "the Original Dungeons and Dragons did things" he gets out the Rules Cyclopedia. The Rules Cyclopedia is part of the Basic Dungeons and Dragons (aka BECM) line, which are actually a separate product. The Original Dungeons and Dragons (OD&D) rules are only contained in the booklets of the White Box set, which is actually on Spoony's shelf in some of the older videos.
