** Queenie Z's RP, while still having some of the most hilarious jokes from the riffers, became a lot less funny after not only did she reveal she has autism, but was ''still being bullied and getting sent death threats'' even after she apologized for the LP and remade it.



** Queenie Z's infamous RP and the reaction it had after it was revealed she has autism.

** Jack Orlando from [[VideoGame/JackOrlando his self-titled game]], due to the fact that he's an overly confrontational, bigoted against minorities and gays, and [[DesignatedHero unheroic]] JerkAss. Slowbeef and Diabetus say ''Halligan'' was almost a better hero, due to the fact that at least he was just kind of stupid rather than outright malicious.

** Halligan, a detective of Scotland Yard and the protagonist of ''VideoGame/TheMysteryOfTheDruids'' is already shaping up to be this. Asking ridiculously incompetent questions of just about everyone he runs into, including having seemingly no knowledge about a month-long series of murders involving whole skeletons being left behind with no skin and not knowing what the word "INITIATION" means! And everyone in-universe seems to hate the guy just as much as the Retsupurae gang.

*** Which was quickly confirmed by the end of the game when Halligan [[spoiler: ''stabbed his own love interest in the gut.'' Even if it was to stop the BigBad, [[AssPull it came so far out of nowhere]] and was so over the top that it cemented the Retsupurae crew's hatred of the guy.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Brent Halligan from ''Mystery of the Druids'' earned a ton of ire for being a general idiot despite being [[DesignatedHero the main protagonist]]. Also, he does a lot of awful things in the game, ranging from poisoning a homeless man ''just to get change for the phone'' to [[spoiler: '''stabbing the female lead apropos of nothing.''']]

*** It certainly helps that soon after, PewDiePie made a comment suggesting that he's OnlyInItForTheMoney, which caused huge chunks of his fanbase to turn on him.

** They made an extremely negative video centered around PewDiePie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbVKL-Meo0&feature=g-all-u and his LP's in general]]. His fans haven't taken it too well.

** In Chip and Ironicus' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9398SaYfUno Retsupurae with Chris & Tim!]], they riff on a duo for putting a feed of their own faces in the corner of the game footage, with a heavy dose of ItWillNeverCatchOn. This riff was posted in 2008, years before acts like PewDiePie and Markiplier would become internet celebrities for doing essentially the same thing.

* DudeNotFunny: Some of their attacks on bad [=LPers=] go a little too far. Acknowledged by slowbeef, who admits that he's ashamed of some of the older riffs, such as the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibaPEq9qCKg Starfox 64]]'' retsupurae.

** Some find the riffs on some of the failed Kickstarter projects akin to pouring salt on the wound for the few developers that (at least) wanted to make a decent project, despite some of the developers being perfectly okay with them riffing their projects and giving them the permission to do so.

Also, the duo tends to riff on Kickstarter projects that are still ongoing (at least, at the time that they actually record the commentary for the video; actual editing, much less putting the video up, may well still end up after the project has ended), possibly in part to alleviate this sort of feeling.



** [=VoidBurger=], shas recently proven a runaway hit; many of the comments on the videos featuring her include requests that she become a Retsupurae regular.

* IAmNotShazam: The man behind the "Gaming In The Clinton Years" videos is called "navgtr" by slowbeef and Diabetus in the original set of RPs. His name is actually George Wood, and navgtr (or [=NAViGaTR=]) stands for "National Association of Video Game Testers and Reviewers."[[note]]The name is in all the videos because they're the ones who collected and archived the videos.[[/note]] More modern RP videos of ''Gaming in the Clinton Years'' reviews have them fixing the mistake and referring to George by his actual name.
