* AcceptableTargets: Canadians get a lot of abuse from many of Josh's comments, though he has stated he doesn't actually hate them and only makes fun of them because they can take a joke.

* HilariousInHindsight: Back in his and [[Creator/TheAutarch The Autarch's]] top 10 hated characters list in 2010, he used the My Little Pony theme to make fun of [[VideoGame/TonyHawksUnderGround Eric Sparrow]]. [[ConvertedFanboy Fast forward a few years...]]

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Josh discovers this by accident during the countdown of the top 10 music battles, noticing a guitar riff during ''[[WesternAnimation/MetalocalypseTheDoomstarRequiem The Doomstar Requiem]]'' sounding eerily like the opening theme to ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.
** Apparently, in real life, the way he discovered it was also accidental; he was humming the guitar riff and someone else thought he was humming the ''My Little Pony'' intro.

* TearJerker:
** [[http://youtu.be/pz6H9twohoM?t=12m39s Him admitting]] [[BigBrotherBully that he wasn't always the best big brother]] and [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone how "Sisterhooves Social" made him realize it.]] His [[TheAtoner general demeanor about it]] is heartwrenching, though how he changed after his realization is heartwarming.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcGcKh7hQWI Response to]] Creator/LilyPeet. Hearing how their friendship fell apart, and how Lily has been bullying Josh for the past few months, is just heartwrenching. Special mention goes to when Josh talks about how he misses his friendship with Lily, with audible sadness in his voice as though he's trying not to cry. Yet Lily ''still'' justifies her actions, and even called Josh's video an attack on her, despite the accounts of proof Josh provided in his response video.
** Josh's speech near the end of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM1eSEqVlKA&t=3s Semper Filly]]. While most of the video was either mocking the incompetence of the Royal Guard, or Silver, Dusty, Doc, and Antony C [[HilarityEnsues failing to train them]], Josh's speech about what soldiers go through caused more than a few tears to be shed.
--->'''Firebrand:''' The military exists so you can ignore the harsh reality of the world
--->'''Sweetie Bloom:''' What reality?
--->'''Firebrand:''' [[WeAllDieSomeday We're all going to die]]. Every day we desensitize ourselves with our YouTube, anime, video games, books, all to do our best not to think about the ultimate truth that everyone spends their entire lives trying to ignore. The fact that everyone is suffering and everyone is going to die. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do. You and I have a 100% mortality rate. And war, it makes death happen much earlier than we want which is why we hate it so much. It makes the reality of our limited lives become harder to ignore. No one wants to think about those things, everyone's natural instinct when confronted with danger or suffering is to run away. However, those who join the military, they have to run towards chaos and evil. They have to reject the illusion of safety and put themselves in danger to maintain our wistful fantasies of peace. They are required to embrace these worries and fears so you don't have to. They are forced to leave their families and travel to hostile lands thousands of miles away and fight the worst of humanity just so you can pretend you're safe. That's the reason people in the military get so stressed and depressed, because they have to confront reality on a daily basis. That's why they deserve our respect.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite Josh being open with his conservative views, [[AvertedTrope not the case]] with LGBT people. Notably in his response video to Lily Peet, he still respects her name and pronouns.

* AccidentalInnuendo: After mentioning that he and [[WebVideo/MLPAnalysis Ink Rose]] stumbled across some Rule 34 of them, he then mentions in the same sentence that "On the plus side, (Ink Rose) gave me a really awesome birthday present". [[SarcasmMode Wonderful choice of words there Josh]].

* FridgeBrilliance: Josh has gone on record stating that horror games often fail to scare him properly, only being able to make him flinch at best. On the flip side, he was scared of scary moments as a kid. Why the sudden change? Well, apart from Josh maturing, he also became a Marine, so he's now physically and mentally trained to remain calm in any given situation and resolve it without panicking. At least, as long as those situations that don't involve Gmork from ''Film/TheNeverEndingStory''...
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: If you've read the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', then Josh's line [[http://youtu.be/UHEds84_H5Y?t=2m35s here]] Is either going to be FunnyAneurysmMoment, or HilariousInHindsight

* BrokenBase: "Newbie Dash" opened up a question of how objective Josh can be on things. Josh later addressed this, explaining that he had based his opinion off his own personal experience, and apologizing for not considering others' different experiences and for upsetting anyone.
