* ItGetsBetter: The Grumps have had several series that start out slow and boring but then generally start picking up the pace within a episode or two.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Arin and Dan paint E102-Gamma from ''Sonic Adventure'' as a sociopath, mass murdering and compulsive deathbot with a lot of sarcasm, and is very easily annoyed.

** At one point in ''Mary-Kate & Ashley: Sweet 16 - Licensed to Drive'', Jon and Arin begin going off with a bit impersonating a SassyBlackWoman, and [[https://youtu.be/7kRYzOOCHvY?t=8m27s Jon ends up turning the bit into a domestic abuse story played for laughs]]. It's probably Jon's "black woman" voice that makes it hilarious.

** [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] is often mocked regardless how well-received the game being played is. This comes largely from Arin, as Danny has had very little exposure to the franchise and doesn't have a solid opinion on it.

Added DiffLines:

** It becomes increasingly obvious during the ''VideoGame/OcarinaOfTime'' playthrough that the majority of Arin's problems with the game are due to his own playstyle. Most of the enemies that he claims force you to wait can in fact be very easily dispatched by either hitting them in the back, blocking and counter-attacking, or just using a Deku Nut to force them to be vulnerable. However, Arin refuses to block except against enemies that explicitly require it and refuses to acknowledge that Deku Nuts are an option. His argument is that blocking wastes time but he only ends up wasting more time by taking unnecessary damage and spamming sword swipes, which in 2D Zeldas is a valid form of combat but in 3D Zeldas only resets enemy attack patterns and takes longer for them to let their guard down.

** He can also become this when you compare his VS results to Jon's.
** Dan in ''Super Mario 3D World'' when Arin insists on treating the game, which he's far more experienced at, as a competition, and proceeds to act like a playground bully constantly cheating Dan out of points. Though this does make it immensely satisfying when Dan switches from Luigi to the much faster Toad after a few episodes and suddenly Arin's the one playing defense. And then proceeds to go absolutely out of control with tormenting him by throwing useful items out of their inventory willy-nilly and screwing them over on purpose, especially in World Flower's Pipeline Boom Lagoon.
*** This is topped by the reveal in ''Super Mario 64'' that after a year on the show, he's become far more self-conscious about playing games badly in public, which is why his playing time has had such a noticeable drop.

** Emo Teen Dan from the Burgie commercials seems to be an intentional bad boy example.

** Many fans got tired of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' by the time the video count reached the 70s. Adding to this is that it actually could theoretically go on forever with new levels being created every day, plus it still gets by far the highest viewing numbers in the show's history, giving the guys very little incentive to stop.

** Brian barely becomes a a member and already is one. Some people love his snarky humor and gaming skills while others think he is too arrogant and keeps dicking around instead of helping the other players. Also, the PhD jokes are either hilarious or unfunny and overused.
