** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3X1gjM-1Gw Lisa]]'s reaction video is also equally powerful. She doesn't regret dating him or letting him go and is just so happy that Shane is finally able to accept himself. And then proclaims that they will always be best friends, [[HeartwarmingInHindsight which they do]].
** Most of the videos that Ryland appears in. It's really obvious that they are very loving and affectionate towards each others.

* NeverLiveItDown: A lot of his older content was shocking and insensitive in ways that went too far and negatively impacted his image, such as his poor decision to use blackface in some sketches, and a joke about pedophilia that made him the target of ManipulativeEditing in to make him seem sincere in a social media attack. While Shane has apologized for his misjudgements and tried to move on, not everybody forgives him.

* LoveItOrHateIt:
** While he does have a fairly sizeable fanbase, his former use of {{Blackface}} and [[BlackComedy dark humour comedy]] in general have also generated a rather vocal hatedom. On his potentially more offensive works, some are okay simply to not watch it, whereas others are calling for him to be banned from Vidcon.
** This also seems to be the case when he's doing the ''[[{{WebVideo/REACT}} YouTubers React]] ''series, as he's usually the one that seems unimpressed, being TheStoic, which is odd compared to the persona he usually presents. It turns out he's actually a pretty mellow guy and he proves that he's generally not impressed by most Internet-popular videos in multiple "try not to" challenges.
** What the Fuck News with Des. You either like his style of humor and creative news choices, or find him obnoxious and overly fake, and some don't like that Shane's channel is a host, preferring that he would have his own channel for the show. The fact that WebVideo/IHateEverything proved that his segment had stolen one of his jokes added fuel to the fire. The series' end now has some people happy and others wishing it didn't happen.

** Is Shane's content better after the end of his sripted sketch videos? Some would say he's declined and lost his trademark, but others would argue that Shane is much funnier going off without a script, and that his comedy writing is often forced and unfunny.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Even people who dislike Shane himself admits that they love his boyfriend Ryland because of his role as the OnlySaneMan and his relationship with Shane. Vlogs that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91c8RY59JDw featured]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGNbF1DyPAs Ryland]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6z-X4r5JkyI and their relationship]] heavily have more views than the regular ones. It's saying something that [[https://www.youtube.com/user/ryanadams7 Ryland's channel]] has more subscribers than ''Garrett'' despite has less appearance and videos as well as not being a professional [=YouTuber=].

** After years of fear and resentment toward his DisappearedDad, Shane decides to reach out and reconnect to his father. While both know their relationship will still need work, they connect over lots of surprising similarities (such as their humor and...unpleasant habits) and both come out of the experience more fulfilled and happy. Shane feels like his entire life has been changed, and his unconscious smiling at the end of the video shows it.

* BrokenBase: His coming out as bi has split the base, although not because of his identifying as bisexual. While people are more or less universally happy that he can openly admit to being who he is and some point out that bisexuals need representation, others think that his use of BlackComedy such as {{Blackface}} and so on disqualifies him from being a representative. For the time being, many are content to wait and see how his behaviour changes, if at all. There was also criticism that the video came off as an attempt to get attention.

* PlotTumor: His food-tasting/making videos, which have gone on to take up the majority of his videos. They eclipse all his other videos, including the incredibly popular [[EpilepticTrees conspiracy theory]] videos. He seems to have become aware of this though, and does conspiracy/creepy videos at least once a week, while dialing back the food videos.

* PlotTumor: His food-tasting/making videos, which have gone on to take which, for a time, were a phase that took up the majority of his videos. They eclipse eclipsed all his other videos, including the incredibly popular [[EpilepticTrees conspiracy theory]] videos. He seems to have become aware of this though, and does conspiracy/creepy videos at least once a week, while dialing back the food videos. Shane acknowledges this shift (and the shift away from this shift) in a vlog with Ryland, noting that "food Shane is back" when eating a donut/cookie sandwich.

Added DiffLines:

* PortmanteauCoupleName: "Shisa" back when he was still dating Lisa, and "Shyland" now that he is dating Ryland. Both have been used by Shane directly in his videos.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: Many of his "Shisa" videos with Lisa Schwartz, in which general playful antagonism appears much darker after the two had officially broken up. Even moreso since by their admission they had already broken up for almost a year before they finally announced it but were pretending to still be together and making videos as a couple for their audience.

** Ryland/Shane/Lily/Joslyn used to be pretty popular due to the amount of ShipTease during Shane's appearance on the Clevver channel before Shane and Ryland announced that they are dating.
