** ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' got this too. Not only did it have more episodes than the average TRG co-op, but only two were uploaded per week instead of the usual three (the third slot was filled by ''VideoGame/DokaponKingdom'', another long-runner). As a result, the LP lasted almost ''five months'', agitating some fans who wanted to see something new. It didn't help that the [[ThatOneLevel final level]] was split into [[EndingFatigue three separate videos]], which earned Chugga some criticism.

There was also the fact that replays of levels were left uncut unlike in previous projects such as Return To Dreamland where only important bits were kept in, and the video lengths being shorter and usually no longer than 15 minutes made it so that some videos only had one level be played.

** Episode 10 of ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet''. One side thought it was their funniest episode yet, while another found it extremely boring, and a third found it outright racist.
** [[spoiler:Jon's]] continuing winning streak in ''Mario Party 4'' has caused quite a few people to quit watching the LP. The other half seems to think he deserves it after [[spoiler: the train wreck of bad luck that ''Mario Party 3'' brought him]].

racist. The entire episode was designed as a TakeThat and parody of the more bizarre criticisms the playthough had received (including having a female guest despite the name been The Runaway ''Guys'', the accents used and the tendency of the group to be very loud) but this does fall flat for some people.

The other half seems to think he deserves it after [[spoiler: the train wreck of bad luck that ''Mario Party 3'' brought him]]. It shows up again when the streak continued in ''Mario Party 5.''

* AntiClimax: In ''Dokapon Kingdom'', Chugga gets a nitroglycerin (an item that randomly explodes if the person holding it is hit) early on and keeps holding onto it for over 2 years of real time. Eventually, [[spoiler: Chugga gets a big bug, which eats the nitroglycerin, meaning that after all that time, it never went off!]]

** [[VideoGame/DokaponKingdom Hans the Arms Dealer]]. The guys and fans consider him very quotable and always look forward to seeing him and hearing his declarations of "havin' a sale".

** Mal's DeadpanSnarker comments made while playing was what made some interested in checking LetsPlay/SthephenPlays out.

** LetsPlay/StephenPlays is also very popular with fans. It helps that he's good friends with Chugga and isn't nearly as loud and obnoxious. Plus Mal's DeadpanSnarker comments made while playing was what made some interested in checking LetsPlay/SthephenPlays out.his channel out.
** Daisy, for being shipped with Chugga. Her popularity surged during Jon's livestream of Mario Party 6 after Chugga made one too many innuendos about her. She was then chosen to be Chugga's playable character in Mario Party 5, just because of that livestream.



** Many seem to feel this way about [[PlatonicLifePartners Tim and Lucahjin]]. At least before Jon and Lucah started dating.

** Chugga in ''Wheel of Fortune''. Since he's not that good at word puzzles, the constant bad guesses he makes leading to him getting repeatedly humiliated eventually makes it pretty easy to feel bad for him.

Taken UpToEleven in Jon's May 2016 livestream of ''Mario Party 10'' where just about nothing went his way. He got so frustrated and upset that [=#HugsForChuggs=] and variations thereof started flying around Twitch chat because the game was just that cruel to him.

* 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.

** 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.
