** Also, in the X Wedlocke, there was Korrina in her gym battle. In the X Wonder Wedlocke, her Hawlucha ended killing almost all of Marriland's party members. Here, Allspice the Espeon swept the Gym Leader without much trouble, even outspeeding rhe dreaded Hawlucha.

** Again from real-life, the extreme amount of flack Marriland copped from one ''accidental'' rule break at the end of the Omega Ruby Wedlocke caused him to end yet another series feeling unsatisfied, leading to a full-on CreatorBreakdown and him abandoning Youtube Nuzlockes altogether. (And this time it'll probably stick)
** Another real-life example: the reception of the Alpha Sapphire walkthrough series, which was extremely high-quality, well-researched and incredibly in-depth, taking a huge amount of time to make... and yet his "fans" gave him nothing but hate over it, making it no fun to continue to the point where he cancelled the entire series.

Added DiffLines:

** In regards to his Pokemon, fans are split on how to interpret Sage, the Froakie from Marriland's X Wedlocke and [[spoiler:the fact that his partners keep dying. Is he a weak, cowardly boyfriend who has failed to protect his lovers from their untimely deaths? A horrifically unlucky guy who loses his loved ones due to circumstances beyond his control? Or is he simply a heartless jerk who throws the lives away of his loved ones when he grows bored of them?]]

** The X Wedlocke introduced [[BossInMooksClothing Trainers of Death]], which Marriland must defeat before moving to a new area. [[spoiler: The first one, Rising Star Hamish, who has an underleveled Kadabra, was taken out in one hit by Carob the Bibarel.]]

* AuthorAppeal: If he gets a Marill in a Nuzlocke, he ''will'' go out of his way to use it, for obvious reasons. See the Emerald Nuzlocke, Black 2 Wedlocke and Y Wondersleeplocke.
* BaseBreaker: His tendency to talk to most every single NPC (especially as of Gen V) to see what they have to say, and repeating their dialogue out loud, and that of the trainers. He does this because [[note]]according to a comment in Episode 83 in White 2, where he fights N's Reshiram[[/note]] he dislikes when people play through and don't acknowledge the dialogue the Trainers say or talk to any non-Trainer [=NPCs=] who don't give them items. While some people like it, others find it very annoying because they only want to see action and not have their time wasted by things not productive to the gameplay.
** The Platinum Nuzlocke. [[spoiler:The fact that there are so ''few'' deaths compared to his other runs has led some to find it boring, others to praise it as an amazing show of skill. See UnpleasableFanbase.]]

* TheScrappy: As if Scott from Emerald wasn't hated enough by regular players due to his annoying tendencies, thanks to the Emerald Nuzlocke series, now the hatred of him by Devin and the viewers of his Nuzlockes [[UpToEleven couldn't possibly go any higher]] (see AlternativeCharacterInterpretation above).

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: He does not consider his Nuzlocke series strictly G-rated. In Episode 6 of Emerald "Big Service!", he lampshades this [[IncrediblyLamePun big time]].
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: He locked his Platinum Nuzlocke thread and said that he would never update it again after the HateDumb was getting mad at him for not updating frequently enough. Never mind the fact that several vocal fans were trying to convince the haters that he had enough to do with working on White 2, Emerald, [=HeartGold=], Gates to Infinity, his website, and his personal life, and that he didn't need to be pressured into working on Platinum as well. He did reopen the thread eventually to inform the viewers that he was about to begin posting it to YouTube, but the unpleasable viewers still might have been unnecessary.
** He recently decided that the flack he was getting was too much to bear, and disabled comments on a few of his videos (like the Champion battle in Emerald, and the Bug Catching Contest episode in Heartgold to name two) where he was getting a lot of it.
*** He had to disable comments on every one of the Omega Ruby Wedlocke's Elite Four battle videos due to a combination of two BaseBreaker incidents in the Glacia battle. First, [[spoiler: Fettuccine died due to failing to overcome his confusion on his own - something that Devin felt he needed to do for story purposes since confusion had always been Fettuccine's weak point, but some fans weren't happy about Devin choosing not to use a Full Restore, especially since Fettuccine's death also led to the death of Bruschetta immediately after]]. The second and more controversial incident was when he [[spoiler: accidentally broke the item restriction rule]]. Since the Elite Four and Champion fights were all recorded in a single session and Devin didn't notice what happened until editing the videos, there was no way for him to address it within the run or do anything about it, but that didn't stop people from arguing and complaining about it to the point where all four videos had to have their comments disabled.
** And it's gotten worse: rising HateDumb of the Platinum Nuzlocke almost lead to him ''[[CreatorBreakdown never doing another Nuzlocke on Youtube again]]''...until he moved on from that as the announcement in his 1,000th video that he would be doing a Black Wedlocke, Y Wonderlocke ''and'' Black 2 Wedlocke that year.
** In a reverse example, the extreme hatred his Alpha Sapphire walkthrough series got by fans demanding more Nuzlockes eventually caused him to scrap it entirely and replace it with another Nuzlocke.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: He started his Pokemon Yellow Adventure as an April Fools joke, genuinely thinking no-one would be interested in watching such an old game. Fans loved it and it eventually became a full series.

** A real-life example: despite putting so much hard work into the Platinum Nuzlocke, he was met with a brutally UnpleasableFanbase. He's mentioned in the comments how he's seem some of the most loyal followers of his previous Nuzlockes and those who were cheering him on turn into haters, and that the difficult restrictions he imposed on himself made the game ''extremely'' stressful for him and often no fun at points. In the end, he was led to quit Youtube Nuzlockes altogether, until Black at least.
