** To a minority of the fanbase, the Ridley voice is this.



* ReviewsAreTheGospel: Much like Website/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 ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart's Nightmare]]'' 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.

[[spoiler:Made funnier by the fact that Oyster was in on that one all along.]]

*** Later installments in the Ambition series feature an absurd amount of [[ShockingSwerve swerves]] that seem to be there for the sole purpose of retconning anything bad Ted did to be [[spoiler: part of an insanely convoluted conspiracy to frame him orchestrated by his ex-wife Bridget, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Rolf Klink]], and [[TheBadGuysAreCops the crooked police force]]]]. It doesn't help make him seem sympathetic and only serves to further muddy an already hard-to-follow plot.

* UncannyValley: The various animations in Newgrounds flashes, such as the weird puppet-people in ''Arrival in Hell'', the incredibly stiff animation in ''The Mike Weiss Show'', or the DerangedAnimation in ''WebAnimation/{{Xin}}''.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Paradigm Shift'' is probably one of the most notable cases, considering there are multiple encounters possible with endless hordes of bloodthirsty zombies, and yet the single scariest-looking thing in the game is the one other ''living, non-infected'' human being you find.

Added DiffLines:

** The second game of the ''Trapped'' series at one point involves a character somehow becoming locked ''inside'' a car, a concept so ridiculously unfeasible that it almost gives Proteus an aneurysm. Fast-forward six years, and there is now the ''Car Escape'' series, which is pretty much one guy somehow getting locked inside '''multiple''' cars over and over again.

** During the riff on ''LetsPlay/ProtonJon'', Diabetus makes a joke about Jon's prolific uploading. A couple of years later, Jon became infamous for ScheduleSlip.

* DudeNotFunny: Some of their attacks on bad [=LPers=] in the early days went 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.
** Queenie Z's RP became this in '''spades''' after it was discovered she is autistic.
*** Even before that, the revelation that she still gets bullied years after the retsupurae [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified slowbeef and Diabetus, as well as the audience]].
** Parodied in their VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream videos, during the infamous scene in Ellen's part. Diabetus knew it was there going in, and it was more to sidestep actually making jokes about it, which probably would be this trope.
** 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 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.
* 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.
