** One of his complaints about ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' was the unimaginative name given to General Grievous, suggesting that they call all future bad guys "Evil" and "Bad". Come ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' Season 4, there is a Darth Maul {{expy}} introduced given the name ''"Savage Oppress"''.

Added DiffLines:

* AcceptableTargets: It would be easier to list who he ''doesn't'' label as a target, but some standout examples:
** Early on, feminists and [[StrawMisogynist women in general]] were a fairly common target of his.
** [[AcceptableInevitableTargets Old people]], to the point where he suggested launching them one-way into space at some point.

** Look at the screenshot montage on his [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=xbox_suckit Xbox rant]], written in 2002. The games shown are ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 3'', ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'', and ''VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun'', three games Maddox ranted would never appear on Xbox. All three games eventually made it to {{Xbox}} or {{Xbox 360}}. '''Yes, even ''Radiant Silvergun''.''' (For bonus points, that game became an Xbox ''exclusive''.)

* SlasherSmile: After reading hate mail criticizing him about his lack of smile, he has done something between this and the PsychoticSmirk at the end of many of his YouTube videos - despite his rather heated delivery, he retains quite a relaxed posture and attire. Many first-time viewers (and some even long-time fans) get surprised by this.

Added DiffLines:

** His video on E3 2015 has him complain about the trailer for ''VideoGame/MadMax'', drawing comparison to the trailer for ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' and specifically naming the latter using fire tornadoes, while noting their absence in the former. [[spoiler:Come the game's launch, and it turns out said tornadoes ''do'' appear in the game.]]

** [[http://maddox.xmission.com/movies.html One secret page listing his favorite movies]] includes ''Film/HappyGillmore'', which features Maddox ''unironically'' calling Creator/AdamSandler "the sovereign of ass kicking & all around ruler." Given the rest of his career, this was not to last.
