** The first Retsupurae video on LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast was called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbvZeOnHI_w "Let's 'ave a carriage ride!"]] Seven years later, during their Wrongpurae of ''VideoGame/DraculaUnleashed'', the exaggerated accents of the various [[WarpWhistle carriage drivers]] draw immediate comparisons to [=ElectricalBeast=].

** During the Retsufrash of ''VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy'', they express complete disbelief at the main character being locked in a car. Years later, slowbeef and Diabetus start a wrongpurae of a series where ''that happens for most of the episodes''.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Earlier Retsupuraes were more prone to throwing around slurs and doing personal attacks on the let's players themselves rather than the let's play itself.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Earlier Retsupuraes were more prone to throwing around slurs and doing personal attacks on the let's players themselves rather than the let's play itself. In general, Retsupurae no longer seems to focus on let's plays very often with a slant toward riffing on crowd funding projects and published works, which can be viewed as NetworkDecay.

** It happened '''again''' with their Wrongprae of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow''. Quite a lot of people have come to the defence of that particular game - and the series in general -- in the comments section, pointing out that [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone there were]] VideoGame/KingsQuest [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder games far]] [[VideoGame/KingsQuestMaskOfEternity more douchebaggy]]. Near the end of the Wrongprae, even slowbeef notes that ''V'' probably deserved it more, and guess what they went after next? slowbeef has since commented that he doesn't really think ''VI'' is bad, but he dislikes the protagonist.

*** This became even more notable when fans on both sides exploded at [=PewDiePie=] himself commenting on the situation, which only made things worse. This seems to have mostly died out now with [=PewDiePie=]'s apology video, though attacks on retsupurae and their fans are still common.

** In late 2010, the Ridley voice had its magnum opus in the Omega Ridley battle from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'', including a lengthy rant about ''Heavy Rain''. In September 2011, a ''Jurassic Park'' arcade game Wrongpurae reintroduced the voice to make fun of the dinosaurs. Two months later, Creator/TelltaleGames released ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTheGame'', with gameplay that's heavily based on ''Heavy Rain''.

* IAmNotShazam: The man behind the "Gaming In The Clinton Years" videos is called "navgtr" by slowbeef and Diabetus. 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]] ** In rants against them, the term "Retsupurae" is almost always confused for just one guy. This indicates that either the complainants have literally never seen an RP video, or that they're actually too stupid to realize that there's more than one voice talking in the vids.

** Rock Knight from ''Space Adventure Cobra'' is also given this treatment, to the point that [[spoiler:Diabetus and slowbeef start shouting "NON CANON" after his death scene]].

** Silver and Elise from ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006''; the former for spending most of his screen time running around aimlessly on the whim of whatever character he runs into, all while failing to accomplish anything meaningful, and the latter for getting kidnapped by Dr. Eggman nearly every time she shows up onscreen.

* ArcFatigue: During the ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2'' riff, they hadn't yet had their time limit removed, so they had to upload each part in fifteen minute chunks, once a day. This went on for over a month.

** Speaking of ''Darkseed 2'', [=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.

* ReviewsAreTheGospel: Much like SomethingAwful, a ''lot'' of people use Retsupurae as a metric for an Internet personality's worth, and you can guarantee if a user gets a riffing it ''will'' be used as "proof" of them being objectively awful. The most brutal example of this undoubtedly being WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, whose reputation is forever tainted by his ''VideoGame/BartsNightmare'' Let's Play and has had his {{Hatedom}} increase exponentially since the duo's [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness surprisingly]] (and [[OldShame regrettably]]) personal attack on him. The fact that he is frequently compared to ''PewDiePie'' by the Retsupurae fanbase ''without a hint of irony'' should tell you something.
