** The "boring" song in the ''Film/{{Junior}}'' review.

** Tamara (the AsHerself character, not Malice or Hyper) ruled everything in ''Film/TheWickerMan'' review, but never reached that level of awesome again. This can be explained by being under Critic's thumb afterwards, no matter how much she hates him.

* CreepyAwesome: Tamara in the ''Film/TheWickerMan'' review. Critic calls her every word for crazy under the sun but ends up attracted to her, and Doug later on talked about how there's usually backlash with new people/things but 90% of audience loved her in that episode.

* CryForTheDevil: Critic almost crying in ''Film/TheWickerMan'' about not knowing what meme to use. While he deserves what pain is coming to him for how he's treated Rachel and Malcolm before, Doug genuinely makes it look like he's tearing up and so you can't help but still feel bad.

** Discussed in ''Film/TheWickerMan''. Critic's ''really'' tired of the infamous "NOT THE BEES!" scene, particular because he feels it makes no sense that this particular [[{{Narm}} unintentionally hilarious moment]] stands out in a film full of them.

** After the Wicker-Man review Tamara has become one, mostly because - as Critic lampshades - she's a FandomNod to everyone who wants to see him get punished or yelled at for acting badly. Like Jim, she got her own series, using her PopCulturalOsmosisFailure and cats to her advantage.

** Tamara in ''Film/TheWickerMan'' to the point where Critic gives her a job because of it, and any other time she brings her sadist-vengeful side back out.

** In ''Film/TheWickerMan'', Tamara being psychotic and so happy about it is what makes Critic want her to work for him in the first place, and Malcolm proves he's no slouch in the uncomfortably attractive SlasherSmile department either.

** Slammed again in his ''Jurassic Park III'' review, as he hates this reputation so much that he's traded BadDreams for “night-memes”, nightmares about memes that he swore he'd never do again but keep popping up, in this case Dino-Rob.

* MagnificentBitch: Tamara in ''Film/TheWickerMan'' review, manipulating men with whatever they want (Critic- an abusively creepy psychotic woman to hurt him, Malcolm- a chance to get back at his boss, Snob and Spoony- a cute girl who gives them compliments) and stringing them along so she's the one who wins.

** With the faster cuts, the EnforcedMethodActing screaming from ''Film/TheWickerMan'', Tamara's gored hands and the various clips of Rachel and Critic getting beaten, the ''Film/GhostDad''-starting opening theme can get this reaction.

* PeripheryDemographic: Let's be honest, a fair amount of fangirls ([[EvenTheGuysWantHim and guys]]) just watch him 'cuz he's cute and suffers in an appealing way, not because they care about what he's reviewing. Lampshaded at the end of ''Film/TheWickerMan'' where he casually brings up that he always gets more views when he's suffering in a fetishy way.

** Telling Tamara and Malcolm, in the most condescending way possible, at the end of ''GhostDad'' that he was just faking being a ghost and wanted to humiliate them for his TheDogBitesBack torture in ''Film/TheWickerMan''. As he knows they have a right to be angry at him anyway, his stupid even gets lampshaded and he said previously how good it was to be dead, the point might be that his masochist side realizes he deserves punishment.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'' shows he didn't learn from ''Film/TheWickerMan'' or ''Film/GhostDad'' in the slightest, as he mistreats Tamara/Malcolm again, ignores their outright plan to punish him, and oh look he gets punished.

** The intro to Nostalgiaween 2014 features [[WebVideo/JonTron Jon Jafari]] breaking into the Critic's house to kill him [[DisproportionateRetribution for reviewing]] ''{{WesternAnimation/Foodfight}}''...and it stays Jon for the rest of the month. Many have noted the wasted opportunity of having the intro rotating through other online personalities in place of Mr. Jafari.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: The TMZ crew in ''AI'' review. They're so straw, Critic is being a hypocrite because even Doug noted in-commentary that he does the same thing now, their "crimes" are so embarrassingly done (like male crossdressing being seen as worse than racism), plus the whole reason they exist is down to immature RealitySubtext [[note]]Like the real TMZ or not, it's fairly reasonable for them to ask the youtube video of "The Top 11 South Park Episodes" to reuploaded without the screaming rant at their fans[[/note]], that you just end up feeling embarrassed for them in the end.

** Jim Jaeroz made all the sets and models of the ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' review himself, including Tamara's Furiosa arm, and the three weeks the crew took to work on it really shows.

** Some of the people who liked the revived series began to quit it come mid-2014, where they felt that the Critic had become more mean-spirited, more hostile towards anyone or anything he doesn't like to the point of insulting people who disagree with him (some even feeling he's become a StrawCritic himself), skits that overstay their welcome, and ridiculous amounts of BiasSteamroller.
** 2015 has been even worse. In addition to several of the above problems persisting, many have been turned off by several of the videos being little more than an AuthorTract rather than an actual review, spouting off viewpoints that are clearly supposed to be Walker's rather than the Critic's in-character, and the Critic now getting much worse when it comes to reviewing very recent material, including breaking his previous restriction and looking at ''Jurassic World'', ''Pixels'', and ''Star Wars: The Force Awakens'' while they were still in theaters; leaving the "Nostalgia" part as an ArtifactTitle.

** To a lesser extent, Tamara used this belief to promote Hyper Fangirl's CharacterBlog, as she said even you hate the character you should follow her anyway. It worked, considering Hyper has more facebook followers than Tamara's page. Plus every so often, she'll bask in the tears of "how dare you not have watched this" comments, as obviously they're still giving her views.

** On facebook, he got complained about for a pretty transphobic joke about Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber being women {{catfight}}ing. His [[https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=723145877751876&id=127127037353766 response]] was to mostly excuse it with he's really feminine as well, calling himself "Queen Doug".

** Despite him really not wanting her, and sort of proving his point about fangirls not actually caring about his feelings just how cute he is, Critic/Hyper Fangirl was shipped as a OneTruePairing from her first appearance. Because of this, Doug stated at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=by7omfZa3V4 MomoCon]] that he was going to make the storyline as miserable and awful as he could.

** Crossing over with ScapegoatCreator, people who hate any particular episode will solely blame Doug and ignore the fact that he co-writes (excepting editorials and the very rare main episode, Rob was quick to point that Doug did ''Anime/SailorMoon'' by himself) everything with Rob, who tends to get selectively ignored quite often.

** ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' (and especially the male academia rant) got him a lot of MRA fans who were then disappointed to go back in pre-comeback Critic/Doug videos and find that both persona and actor thought the idea of being a "[[http://blip.tv/bum-reviews/doug-s-review-of-paranormal-activity-3-5667598 menimist]]" hilarious. Even in comeback years he thinks the same, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlaaisqtv74 saying]] he doesn't care what they're called he just thinks they're idiots, and complaining that men do genuinely face issues but [=MRAs=] never talk about them.

He could have done what he did for "Bart Gets An F", just admitted that it effected him personally, and it would have been as emotional as he wanted. The {{straw fan}}s following the common episode trend for having zero humanity for his "touching speech" didn't help either.
