*** 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.

* ArcFatigue: During the ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'' riff, they hadn't yet had their time limit removed, so they had to upload each part in fifteen minute chunks, once a day. Since there were 34 parts to it when split up in this way, this went on for over a month.
** The ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic 06]]'' wrongpurae lasted for ''10 months'' and consists of 50 videos.

** While the Crappy Pasta videos have been well-received, some people are unhappy with the third part of Diabetus' ''VideoGame/MegaManUnlimited'' stream being hijacked by slowbeef.
** Similarly, viewers are divided over ''Slowbeef's House of Horror''. Some of them enjoy the higher production values, while others think that what made the ''Crappy Pasta'' videos so good was Slowbeef and Diabetus going in blind.

slowbeef for the purposes of it.
** Similarly, viewers are divided over ''Slowbeef's House of Horror''. Some of them enjoy the higher production values, while others think that what made the ''Crappy Pasta'' videos so good was Slowbeef and Diabetus going in blind. For at least "The Memory Card", slowbeef seems to have tried to play to both audiences, handling it first as a "Crappy Pasta" video alongside Diabetus streaming ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', then revisiting it in "Slowbeef's House of Horror" form a month later.

** During the [=QueenieZ=] RP, you can clearly hear a ''bong hit'' coming from one of the [=RPers=]' mics (most likely Dave_o due to his slurred speech during the ordeal). Which, given the video in question, is ''quite'' understandable.

Added DiffLines:

** Halligan, a detective of Scotland Yard and the protagonist of ''Mystery of the Druids'' 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.

** A milder example with ''Nocturnal Letters''. Based on the comments, a lot of the fans thought it was much better than any of the other Newgrounds flash horror games they've played, despite it not being great and the goons giving it more or less the usual treatment.

** Subverted with John Parker from Shadow of The Comet. He became this thanks to him having a heart attack after looking at a photograph.[[note]][[{{Misblamed}} Granted, the picture was implied to be a Cthulhu-esque picture that'll surely scare anyone.]][[/note]] However, he later shifted to a MemeticBadass after pulling some really badass stunts later in the game.

** Albert Tokaj from ''Afterfall'', because of his general {{Jerkass}} demeanor and the fact that several {{Shocking Swerve}}s in the story proper render everything he did in the game moot. But the main reason is because the game keeps showing Tokaj as some kind of genius protagonist, while his lines and actions are stupid or hilariously non sensical.

* 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 ''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.

** For ''Dark Seed II'', Mike's mother's [[spoiler:[[YourHeadAsplode head exploding]] after claiming that she'll explain everything]].
** ''Shadow of the Comet'' and the scene where John Parker uses some wings he found, glues them together with wax, and then ''flies'' to escape a Lighthouse and his doom.

** Ted Hartrup/[[InconsistentDub Hadrup]] from the ''Ambition'' series is probably the prime example. His wife left him for the rich owner of a company and took their kids with her: sympathetic. Responding to this by strapping a bomb to yourself and threatening to blow up the building the new guy owns? Assaulting a police officer and escaping custody for no reasonable reason? Generally acting like a complete lunatic but still canonically passing the psyche evaluation? Not so much.
