%%* * MemeticMutation: "Adventure! "I apologize for that!"[[labelnote:Explanation]] A line from his [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames Link: The Faces of Evil]], in reaction to the WebAnimation/YouTubePoop he made for the video. Appropriately, it became a meme in [=YouTube=] Poop itself, often used as an apology for A. a particularly [[CrossesTheLineTwice line-crossing joke]] B. use of an overused meme, or C. as LampshadeHanging for StylisticSuck moments.[[/labelnote]]
%%"Adventure!
Yeah!"

* JustHereForGodzilla: PBG's main focus is his 'Review?' videos, but, as shown well on this very page, many fans prefer his various Hardcore series'.

* AlasPoorScrappy: When [[spoiler:Drunky Mc Panda the Spinda]] died in the [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Alpha Sapphire]] Nuzlocke, PBG initially jokes about about how he won't be missed due to how useless he was in battle, but then quickly goes back on what he said a few minutes later when he actually has to release him in the Pokémon Box.
--> '''PBG:''': I feel like I'm, like, letting my pet go or something. He wasn't really a warrior, but he was funny... I liked him...

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9xmHed_N_s Open Your Eyes]]", a song tribute to ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' produced as a joint effort between PBG, singer Garrett Williamson, and Yungtown. Along with the song itself being incredible, you'll be surprised at how good of a singer PBG actually is, especially if you're used him singing his silly songs in his normal videos.

** In his Super Mario 64 Hacking video he quickly mentions a hack that causes Mario's health to decrease over time. In his Chaos Edition Playthrough, the health Drain simply doesn't let PBG win, and activates itself whenever it causes the most problems.

* HePannedItNowHeSucks: His review of SonicHeroes basically parrots what a lot of haters of the series have said for years (such as the characters speaking too much and having Sonic as the sole playable character would be an "improvement"), as well as making really [[Main/MST3KMantra nitpicky]] complaints such as canons not being an effective mode of transportation or the game's PinballZone not being an enjoyable place to live.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After the long hiatus between Minecraft Hardcores 4 and 5, Terraria 3 was confirmed to be released a few short months after the end of season 5.
* BadassDecay: [[spoiler:Barry]] in ''Minecraft HC #4'' goes from being [[spoiler:the longest-lasting survivor in the first two seasons]] to being [[spoiler:the first to die, getting abruptly killed by a child Zombie Pigman.]]
** Ironically, [[spoiler:the person who died first in seasons 2 & 3 (Dean) takes Barry's role as the final survivor.]]
** This trend seems to continue in ''Minecraft HC #5'', as [[spoiler: Barry is once again the first one to die. Granted, his death had much more flair this time around, as you get to watch him go down swinging.]]
* BaseBreaker: As mentioned below, Dean is this. Half of the comments on any Hardcore episode will likely mourn his eventual passing, while the other half will be glad when he's gone.
** Lampshaded in the description for ''Minecraft HC #5'':
--> Dean Elezab: A raucous adventurer with a knack for pushing his luck- and he knows it. Another word for Dean would be: polarizing; you either love him or hate him. Love him for his ridiculous (and dangerous) antics or hate him for endangering the team.
* BrokenBase: Very mildly. Fans tend to disagree on which Hardcore series was the best.
** According to fans, Dean is either annoying and slows the group members down more than he actually helps them, or brings a new style of humor to each Hardcore and makes them even more entertaining to watch. It tends to depend on how much one likes the frequent shouting of random non sequiturs.
** The new dubstep intro for ''Terraria HC #2'' is either a nice, catchy change of pace, or an annoying and unnecessary change to the iconic Hardcore intro theme.
** When the group of 7 split up during ''Minecraft HC #5'', silhouettes were used for the group members whose perspectives were not being observed. While this worked in [=MineZ=] (since they were so far apart that, even if one team could hear the other in trouble, they couldn't do anything to assist them), and many aren't bothered by its return, some fans complained that this fixed perspective is redundant and primarily exists as a cheap way to create false tension and suspense, especially considering [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks none of the other Minecraft seasons did this.]] The immersion is somewhat broken anyways in that during the first perspective split, at one point, Ray goes into the house and meets the second team, and because the calls were separated, he couldn't update them on their situation vocally.
*** It also certainly didn't help that this forced perspective [[spoiler:ended up being one of the major causes behind Dean's death. The second group starts mining into the Netherrack, [[HistoryRepeats a tactic that]] [[UnderStatement hasn't necessarily gone over well with them]] in the past. Since the groups were separated, PBG and [=McJones=] weren't able to warn them that it was a terrible idea. Even worse, they were still in relatively close proximity to each other, even in comparison to earlier episodes like the one where PBG was stranded by himself in the woods at night when they ''didn't'' use this method, and they saw Dean's death message pop up anyways, so it's not like they could have replicated a HeDidntMakeIt scenario.]]



* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Kyrak Jellyman has been a hit with fans despite his relative obscurity and only appearing in a handful of PBG's episodes. His mellow personality makes for a nice contrast with PBG's more boisterous and jovial nature, and their effortless chemistry makes it a shame the two of them haven't done more videos together.
** [=McJones=], PBG's brother, is pretty popular too, similarly liked for being a calm voice of reason amongst the group. Although he's a staple of the Hardcore series, his presence outside of that is sadly minimal. It's telling that [[https://www.youtube.com/user/McJ0nes his [=YouTube=] channel]] has over 2500 subscribers despite having never uploaded a single video.
** ProtonJon, despite only appearing in ''Terraria HC #2'', quickly managed to become one of Hardcore's most popular guest stars. He especially had a chance to shine in the second half of the season once [[spoiler:the party was reduced to just him, Jeff, and [=McJones=], where the three of them formed a fantastic dynamic with each other, and [=ProtonJon=] also went on to last an impressively long time.]] When it was announced that the upcoming ''Terraria HC #3'' will feature a returning guest star, many are hoping it'll be [=ProtonJon=].
* FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler:[=ProtonJon=]'s]] funeral in ''Terraria HC #2'' is already pretty [[TheFunInFuneral hilarious]], but keep in mind that if it had happened just a few episodes later, [[spoiler:Jeff and [=McJones=]]] would have been dressed up, respectively, as ''the Grim Reaper and a ghost''.
* HarsherInHindsight: In Episode 4 of ''Minecraft HC 2'', [[spoiler:there's a joke about "Forever Alone Barry" that takes on a whole new light when he ends up being the last survivor in the finale.]] It even applies to the last episode of Minecraft #1. [[spoiler:Barry won his and Jon's duel at the end, meaning he was the sole survivor of that season too.]]
** This gets absurd in [[spoiler:[=MineZ=], where he is ''again'' the last survivor of each.]]
** [=McJones=] shouting "YOU TRAPPED ME IN" in the intro for ''Minecraft HC #3'' gets a lot darker when you realize [[spoiler:it's what he says before Shane inadvertently traps him in a room filling with lava, leading to his death. Downplayed slightly in that [=McJones=] would probably have still died even if Shane hadn't trapped him.]]
** The description for the first season of ''Terraria HC'' reads, ''"The guys venture forth in the strange land of Terraria. Will they conquer all the bosses? Or will they all fall one by one to the dangers of zombies, blobs, and the ever treacherous falling damage? ...Only time will tell"''. [[spoiler:Fall damage doesn't end up being a problem in that season]], but in the second season of Terraria, [[spoiler:''three people'' die from falling too far and a fourth (Dean) ''almost'' dies from it. Twice!]]

HarsherInHindsight:



** In ''[=MineZ=] HC'', [=McJones=] and PBG talk about the awful luck that occurred with [[spoiler: Dean, as he was poisoned twice. Unbeknownst to them, Dean was actually poisoned a ''THIRD'' time.]]
** One of the strangest meta examples the Hardcore seasons have seen yet: [[spoiler: between ''Minecraft Hardcore Season 4'' and ''Season 5,'' PBG filled the interim with a new show guest starring [=SpaceHamster=] called PB & Jeff. Coincidentally, they end up becoming the final two survivors in ''Season 5''. Jeff even alludes to this.]]
--->[[spoiler:PBG: Oh, Jeff, it's just me and you... we-]]
--->[[spoiler:Jeff: PB & JEFF!]]
--->[[spoiler:[[LaughingMad *shaky laughter*]]]]
*** [[spoiler:They were also the final two survivors in ''Terraria Hardcore #1,'' although that was ''way'' back before the advent of PB & Jeff.]]
* HePannedItNowHeSucks : His review of SonicHeroes basically parrots what a lot of haters of the series have said for years (such as the characters speaking too much and having Sonic as the sole playable character would be an "improvement"), as well as making really [[Main/MST3KMantra nitpicky]] complaints such as canons not being an effective mode of transportation or the game's PinballZone not being an enjoyable place to live.

** In ''Minecraft HC #3'', Jared throws a bow into the crowd akin to a bridal bouquet. PBG can be heard cheering, "I wanna get married next!" He got married to Unicornism about a year later.



* MemeticBadass: Smooth [=McGroove=] quickly became this, thanks to his OnlySaneMan role. [=YouTube=] commenters put him on the same level as Barry and claimed he'd be the last man standing. [[spoiler:They turned out be completely correct, as he outlived Shane by a few minutes.]]
** Barry's MemeticBadass status is even more well-known, due to his aforementioned tendency to be the SoleSurvivor of the group.
** In fact, Barry is always either the first, second, or very last to die.



* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Against all odds, the disease-ridden [=McJones=] and PBG successfully escape from the cave]] in Episode 13 of ''[=MineZ=] HC''.
** In ''Terraria HC #2'', [[spoiler:despite dying at the end, [=McJones=]'s effort against the Wall of Flesh is incredible, bringing it to ''only 350 HP'' when he had a relatively short bridge.]]
* TheScrappy: Aside from the aforementioned Dean, Jon also came under a lot of fire during ''Terraria HC #1'', with many viewing his nonchalant and cynical sense of humor as genuinely disrespectful and a sign that he didn't really want to be there. It was especially jarring in comparison to ''Minecraft HC #1'', where he was much more cooperate and actually took the whole thing seriously. [[spoiler: This all culminated in Episode 7, when he even went so far as to jump off the roof of their house in attempted suicide. Granted, the guys did play off the attempt as a joke, but even PBG at that point seemed pretty underwhelmed by Jon's shtick, and when Jon later did die that same episode, PBG's response was just a deadpan "Well that's a thing that happened".]] It was so bad, many see it as more than just a coincidence that Jon wasn't in the next season of Hardcore despite being a regular up to that point.
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Depending on who you ask, Jon is this upon his return in ''Minecraft HC #3''. While some still saw him as being obnoxious, with some of his antics (such as putting a lavafall inside their own house) as more of the irresponsible and dangerous behavior in Terraria, others found Jon to be more enthusiastic this time around [[spoiler: and were legitimately upset to see him die so early. PBG himself is noticeably more bothered by Jon's death than in ''Terraria HC #1''.]]
