** In a non-gaming example, more about the videos; Chugga slowing down footage retroactively to watch something weird happen, usually to confirm or deny his or the other guys' suspicions if something ridiculous just happened. In theory, not a problem. However, he has a tendency to slow down ''far'' more of the footage than is necessary, seemingly for the purpose of [[MostAnnoyingSound letting us hear everyone's shocked cries and protests in slow-mo]].
** For ''Thrown Controllers'', the Tricky Question was one of the more annoying categories. Despite the name, rather than being somewhere between Easy and Brutal, the questions leaned heavily toward the latter side, but with no fanfare and were usually just anticlimactic ways of eliminating people. Jon ended up replacing them with Multiple Choice questions, presumably because of this.
*** Also from ''Thrown Controllers'', Jon has a tendency to include obscure and/or terrible games in the video game challenges, such as ''Kart Fighter''[[labelnote:*]]A Chinese bootleg that was basically a ''Street Fighter'' ripoff using the cast of ''Super Mario Kart''[[/labelnote]] or ''Sanrio World Smashball''[[labelnote:*]]A ''Hello Kitty'' game that's basically ping-pong with minor fighting game mechanics[[/labelnote]], which can lead to the contestants just resorting to panicked ButtonMashing. That said, if nothing else, the results are generally enjoyable for the audience, provided no technical difficulties arise.

*** The idea of Chugga not getting innuendoes was, for a time, prominent... but sometime after or during 2015, it more or less stopped. Now at most he makes an AccidentalInnuendo before immediately lampshading it, or more commonly, makes deliberate innuendoes and HehHehYouSaidX comments while generally understanding when everyone else does them, with the exception being if it's simply a word he's never heard before. Yet whenever he makes said remarks, expect the comments to blow up with the assumption he has no idea what he meant, even if his laughter or lampshading makes it obvious that he did. Nine times out of ten this will involve referencing the time LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}} gave him a sexual education book and telling him to go read it.

** "I thought Chugga was still sick." [[note]]During the release of the ''Rayman Origins'' LP, Chugga came down with a near-fatal respiratory disease that put [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles his then-current solo project]] on hold for several months. However, since ''Origins'' videos were still being uploaded, fans continually asked whether Chugga was still sick, 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.[[/note]]

** Jon in ''Mario Party 3''. ''Mario Party'' has screwed him over before, but NEVER that badly. It gets to the point where you legitimately feel sorry for him.[[note]]Granted, he was also going through a rough patch since his girlfriend broke up with him right before they started recording.[[/note]] And it gets worse in ''Super Luigi U'' with his constant rage, though he anticipates it being construed as {{Wangst}}. It was revealed in Jon's streams that at the time, he had broken up with his girlfriend around the time of Mario Party 3's recording, [[HarsherInHindsight which explains a lot.]]

** [=PKSparkxx=] from the ''Super Smash Bros. for Wii U'' Invitationals Tournament. A lot of viewers consider him one of the StopHavingFunGuys, in that he was too good at the game (when almost everyone else was just a casual player) and also came off too cocky; these viewers even begged the Guys not to invite him to any future tournaments. Others, however, cite that he's not really that good in comparison to actual tournament players, and while he did come off as confident, he also acted like a good sport to whoever he beat. This second group also argues that not inviting someone because they're good at the game is just childish.

** On a similar note, [[spoiler: Chuggaa's victory in ''Bowser's Glarly Mountain'', thus preventing Jon from doing a clean swipe.]] Audience reactions varied from Chuggaa fans celebrating his victory, to Jon fans accepting that Chuggaa won and enraged Jon fanboys claiming that he cheated the victory from Jon.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Some viewers feel Jon and Tim fall into this in the ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' series. They constantly tell Chugga what to do and where to go, even when he doesn't really need it, which some feel ruins the fun of Chugga playing blind. They also frequently attempt to teach Chugga [[SequenceBreak Sequence Breaks]] and speedrunning tricks, which often cause half a video to be spent repeatedly trying and failing at the same trick resulting in very little progress.


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', due to shorter videos and a sporadic upload schedule, not helped by Jon and Tim trying to teach Chugga [[SequenceBreak Sequence Breaks]] and speedrunning tricks, which often results in half a video spent repeatedly attempting a single trick and making very little progress.

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