** ''Dokapon'' is a constant victim of this, largely due to story progress constantly being impeded by the three fighting with each other... [[MortonsFork to progress the story.]] As a result, a good third of the series leans towards {{Filler}} albeit enjoyable Filler. The nature of the upload schedule (it is used as filler between the main projects) also means the playthough has been going on for several years.

* MagnificentBastard:
** In ''VideoGame/MarioParty 3'', Emile manages to pull a small but brilliant gambit in the final turn of Woody Woods. He uses a Reverse Mushroom on himself and sees Boo. Not having coins to steal a Star, he steals Jon's coins instead, preventing Jon from using his Magic Lamp to get the Star. Emile then chooses to take a path into a dead-end road, which reverses his direction and allows him to visit Boo ''again'', this time with enough coins to steal a Star. [[spoiler:And yet he still loses the board]].
** Jon during ''Koopa's Seaside Soirée'' in ''VideoGame/MarioParty 4''. NCS sees Boo and has the option of stealing a Star from Jon, but (at Jon's encouragement) instead steals coins from Mario; this results in [[spoiler:NCS eventually getting the Coin Star instead of Emile, which allows Jon to win the board]]. Emile even makes this accusation himself, though Jon plays innocent. However, the trope is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when NCS admits he kinda wanted [[spoiler:Jon to win]] and knew stealing coins would help make that happen. Jon drops the act at this point.
** In the last board of ''Mario Party 4'', Emile is determined to prevent Jon from sweeping the game. His method is weaponizing his already ridiculous luck to inhuman degrees. First he intentionally lands on chance time and [[spoiler:manages to swap coins with Jon, stealing the coin lead and later steals the Lucky Bonus Star by landing on ''three Happening Spaces in a row!'' He succeeds in winning the board.]]



** In ''VideoGame/RaymanOrigins'', the guys cite friendly fire as this, as they think it "ruins any semblance of cooperation." They do, however, admit it's ActuallyPrettyFunny sometimes.
** In a non-gaming example, more about the videos; Emile 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]]. Less of a problem, but still one, in ''Mario Party 6'' when he stopped also slowing down the guys' commentary and just muted it; he still slows down a lot more than is necessary, but now it just wastes time rather than also providing some grating sounds.

* EndingFatigue: The ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' race at the end of the second day of the 2018 charity marathon became this as a result of people constantly donating to have Masae & Jules reset their consoles. While the donations were understandably to help balance out the race (as Masae, despite being significantly less experienced at speedrunning than Jules, only had to do a 16-star race compared to Jules's 70-star one), it's generally agreed that the repeated resetting-- which became particularly excessive on Masae's end during her attempts at clearing Bowser in the Fire Sea-- ended up padding out the race for far longer than necessary, to the point where the reset incentive was outright ''removed'' after both contestants reached Bowser in the Sky.

** During the TRG Colosseum, a table lamp that appeared in Day 1 became part of the spotlight. It started when one of the incentives during ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' Randomizer toggles [[MundaneMadeAwesome whether the lamp is on or off]], and viewers were quick to declare it as its own character. Viewers noticed its absence in Day 2, so a milestone incentive was in place where if the goal is reached, a private investigator is tasked to seek the whereabouts of the lamp.

** Certain fans fail to realize that Jon being a dick is just playful banter and want him off the team. And there are some who get tired of him winning all the time. Meanwhile, many people see him as a genuinely witty member who brings a clever sense of humor to the show. Later on, Jon became divisive for another reason: [[TheAce his tendency to win nearly every competitive game (or aspect of a game) the Guys play.]] Some find his constant winning streaks boring, while others feel it's strange to criticise someone for being good at games, and that he should't have to throw games to make things interesting.
