*** Earlier on, the fake President boss explodes, leading to Diabetus joking that he was a robot all along. [[spoiler:This turns out to be the case with the last of the BigBadEnsemble.]]

*** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzPw_vb2DlU It Wasn't Lavender Town]]'' tries to create a frightening story using [[PurpleProse fancy descriptions]] and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness big words]]. The result ends up being more confusing than scary.

The result ends up being more confusing than scary.scary, not helped in part by the story constantly switching between first- and third-person narration, and being inconsistent on whether the events are in the game or in reality.



** This goes for the games they rip on as well, despite them claiming that they make their videos for entertainment, not as serious criticism. ''VideoGame/AloneInTheDark1992'' suffered a very similar fate to that which ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'' did in the hands of WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd: a game that was generally well-liked suddenly faced mobs of detractors parroting the sorts of things their most trustworthy source said- only much, much more seriously than the actual riffs. The same went for the ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' games as well (even ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow'', even though they've stated several times that they don't hate that particular game). No matter how sterling a game's reputation, getting the Retsupurae treatment almost guarantees it an immensely expanded {{Hatedom}}, with some even going as far as [[FanHater attacking people who claim to like the games]], often accusing them of wearing rose-tinted glasses.

** Speaking of ''Dark Seed II'', [=ADVGames4ever=], the guy who longplayed the game, is this as well for wasting the riffers' and the viewers' time by talking to every single character in the game after ''every'' plot event (regardless of if that character actually gets new dialogue from it), and for standing still doing nothing usually for about 2 minutes. People have said that the longplay could've been '''much''' shorter if he were to edit the footage. Granted his pauses did give us some really funny moments from the duo.

Granted footage; he even makes Diabetus angry when he ''does'' try to edit, but screws it up and makes the scene in question ''longer''. Granted, his pauses did give us some really funny moments from the duo.

* SlowPacedBeginning: Some of the Wrongpuraes tend to start out with a ''lot'' of exposition, buildup, or even half-hour long stretches of nothing note happening, both for the viewers and the riffers themselves. But then, [[SignatureScene something particularly baffling or noteworthy]] occurs that cements the reactions from the riffers and the audience from there on in. The Wrongpuraes that fell into this include ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheComet'', ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2'', ''VideoGame/AfterfallInsanity'', and ''VideoGame/ShadowOfDestiny''.

** ''Shadows of Destiny'' has Eike going back in time and ''removing a tree from existence'', replacing it with a statue, [[ItMakesSenseInContext all to stop himself from getting stabbed in the back]]. As well as [[spoiler:him wondering if the bar from earlier is still around]].

** Among the guest retsupuraers, Proteus4994 and Dave_O are the most popular. The latter's return in August 2012 has been met with much praise.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8H6GrU4jYA SSoHPKC.]] Only five hours after the video was posted, it had 1,200 likes and ''1,600 dislikes''. To be fair, all of the dislikers were followers of Seamus and Machinima, which was at least 300k strong for Seamus alone. To make matters even worse, [=SSoH=] is a follower of Retsu much like ProtonJon, and has admitted he even likes the video, but [[FanDumb people still don't catch on and accuse slowbeef and Diabetus of pointless trolling]].

* HellIsThatNoise: The Wrongpurae of VideoGame/KingsQuestV ends with one last video showcasing what happens if [[spoiler:you leave Cedric to die on the harpy island]], ending with an extremely distorted version of the town theme.

** A newer one is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IuCoD-8MWA Joshey164]]. Despite his [=LP=] of [[MarioParty Mario Party 2]][[note]]which includes such gems such as him mainly rolling low numbers on the board, poor ability to win minigames, occasionally bumping into the camcorder with a bad autofocus, and above all, playing it ''alone''[[/note]] being [=RP'd=] in order to highlight the very depressing nature of it, in the end, the two actually feel incredibly sorry for him and suggest their fans to go over to Josh's video (now deleted) and encourage him. Since then, Josh has undergone a massive ColbertBump with his channel, chock-full of enthusiastically supportive comments. And then he deleted his Mario Party video [[FromBadToWorse and seems to have closed his account.]] He's returned since then however, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhrM-XaBLDo playing Mario Party with other people]].
