* ItsShortSoItSucks: Many fans feel that ''Dokapon Kingdom'' should have lasted longer. Notably, however, the guys did this ''intentionally,'' since they were partially testing the waters to see if the fans were interested in them playing the (much, much longer) full game. They have since returned to the game to play Story Mode.

** "I thought Chugga was still sick." Fans [[TooDumbToLive continually asking whether Chugga was still sick during the Rayman Origins videos]], despite being told MULTIPLE times (and it having been established as being this way since the beginning) that the TRG videos are recorded months in advance. It reached the point where other fans started making fun of it -- and then people thought those fans were being serious like the others.

* SeasonalRot: The channel arguably had a bad drop near the end of 2013. ''Castle Crashers'' was a decent, if short, playthrough, but it was followed with ''Mario Party 3'', which had [[BaseBreaker many divisive moments]]. After that was, out of nowhere, ''Wario Ware Inc.: Mega Party Game$''; it had a decent reception, but felt more like filler despite being labeled as a main project, and it had barely anything memorable in it. Then came the ''Bomberman Live Battlefest'' tournament, which had similar problems and was similarly out of nowhere, and to date is among the least viewed content on the channel, let alone just the tournaments. ''New Super Luigi U'' was the final part of this, as while it is fondly remembered by fans, it is infamous for having the most frustrated Jon yet and felt like a slight letdown by being the first ''New Super Mario'' game without a fourth player. Afterwards, ''Mario Party 4'' pulled the channel the rest of the way out of the rot after ''Luigi U'' already helped.

Added DiffLines:

** Shorter playthroughs tend to be less memorable, though not necessarily worse. ''Castle Crashers'' and ''Wario Ware Inc.: Mega Party Game$'' in particular don't have nearly as much to them as other playthroughs on the channel.

** All the death threats Jon and Josh gave to Emile, after he got seriously ill and could have died are they not fun to think back on. Jon even slightly mentions it on a stream expressing regret.

* StarTrekMovieCurse: Both Jon and NCS seem to have this issue performance wise in the Mario Party games. Jon has much better luck playing the even-numbered games, [[spoiler:winning the majority of the boards]] in both ''Mario Party 2'' and ''4'', while the odd-numbered games give him terrible luck, often losing coins, stars, the chances to get stars, and minigames, and his wins are fewer. Jon even brings this up when the three start playing ''Mario Party 5''. NCS meanwhile has it the other way around: his luck is horrible during the even numbered games, [[spoiler:winning no boards]] in the 2nd or 4th games, while he fares better on the odd-numbered titles. He managed to [[spoiler:get a surprising win in ''Wario's Battle Canyon'']] for ''Mario Party 1'', [[spoiler:end up the majority winner]] for ''Mario Party 3'', and [[spoiler:win a board before either Chugga or Jon]] during ''Mario Party 5''. As of ''Mario Party 5'', the curse for Jon may be broken. While he does get bad luck throughout the playthrough (e.g. getting low rolls, getting sent back to the left section of the board in Future Dream by landing on the rockets) he managed to [[spoiler: win four boards in a row, which means he won the majority of the boards in Mario Party 5]]. It's now been theorized that the GameCube works out for him.
