* 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.

Added DiffLines:

**** In Mario Party 5, Chugga plays as Daisy, so this is everywhere. Most notable in Pirate Dream (Part 2):
-->'''Chugga:''' Donkey Kong! Come into my body and become me! I must have you as my playable character again!
-->'''Jon:''' ..So you want Donkey Kong to come into Daisy's body.


Added DiffLines:

* LyingCreator: Downplayed and discussed. In Mario Party 3, TRG brings up the issue of DK no longer being playable in Mario Party 5. They head into the mini game room and Chugga starts talking in Toad's voice. Jon says "Yes, its exactly what you think it means." implying Chugga will play as Toad in Mario Party 5. Chugga picks Daisy instead. When they play Future Dream where Toad is the A.I., Chugga says Toad was indeed going to be his new character but due to playing Mario Party 6 on Jon's channel and making several innuendos involving Daisy, Chugga changed his mind and decided to play as Daisy instead.

* ValuesDissonance: Moreso between the Guys and the viewers; Jon has once stated that statistically, the amount of fun they have in a game is inverselt proportional to a series' viewership, since many watch them just to see them bicker and suffer. He cites Rayman Legends as the prime example, since they had great fun with it, but it's among their least popular series.

** Jon is probably the most susceptible to this; examples include in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' where [[spoiler:he fails to give Chugga a game over]] and again for him and Josh as they [[spoiler:fail to bring down Emile in Mario Stadium in ''Fortune Street'', both complaining about his ludicrous luck]]. And then there's ''Mario Party 3'': whilst the game did screw him over a lot (see TheWoobie below), he did excessively whine about how Mario Party "hates him", despite having good fortune in previous Mario Party games.

This eventually looped around to being Justified, since [[AllThereInTheManual he revealed in a livestream]] that his long-time girlfriend dumped him right before ''Mario Party 3'' started, causing him to take his frustration out on the game.



** 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. 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.]]

** Chugga's gained a considerable hatedom, with many seeing him as an [[{{Troll}} obnoxious]] [[{{Jerkass}} and]] [[LargeHam annoying]] player who's way too loud and immature. The group's [[DethroningMoment/TheRunawayGuys Dethroning Moment Of Suck]] page even focuses solely on his less enjoyable moments. Meanwhile, there's a considerable number of people who enjoy Chugga's contributions to the team, his somewhat edgier humor compared to his more family-friendly main channel, and his numerous Foot-in-Mouth moments.
*** His brand of playing in the ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' playthroughs also leaves people on both sides, as he's the most competitive and most likely to use "[[CombatPragmatist dirty tricks]]" among the three. Depending on who you ask, he's either a MagnificentBastard or a ManipulativeBastard.
