* {{Squick}}: In Episode 41 of ''Dokapon Kingdom'', Chugga mentions that when he was 14 years old, a dragonfly flew right into his eye and stung his eyeball.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Some misspell Chugga as Chuggaa despite him always shortening it to the former himself. Some also call Jon, John.

** The increasingly racist "Knocka Blocka Towah" jokes in ''Mario Party 1''.

Added DiffLines:

** Daisy officially being Chugga's player character as of ''Mario Party 5'' (since Donkey Kong is no longer available as a playable character). Some people love the fact Chugga is playing her due to all the AccidentalInnuendo that occurred regarding the character, and think it'll be a great fit for more humor. Others feel like she's already turning into a ForcedMeme and there really isn't much for Chugga to work with using her, and greatly prefer the idea of him switching to Toad, who they feel has much more opportunity for funny moments since Chugga is rather infamous for his spot-on Toad impressions.

** Some consider NCS unnecessary due to him being quiet and OutOfFocus a lot, and some deride him for his poorer playing abilities. Others see him as an entertaining member & a [[OnlySaneMan crucial source of sanity]] for the guys.

** The second battle against Phantom Ganon in ''Four Sword Adventures'' also gave them a hard time, mostly because they kept missing the projectiles that [[TennisBoss they needed to hit back.]]


Added DiffLines:

** "Village of the Blue Maiden" from ''Four Sword Adventures''. Thanks to the way the game was designed, it took them ages to get past the second screen (they did not realise that only one person was able to perform the sequence of events needed to progress). This was followed by a level that had a lot of backtracking and fetch quests.

* HypocriticalFandom: There are quite a few times where the fans will bash one of the Guys (normally Jon or Emile) for the moments where they are jerks or being too competitive but fail to mention that ''all'' of them do this.

Added DiffLines:

* CriticalResearchFailure: In one episode of Subspace Emissary, Chugga states that Kirby was originally going to be yellow, but his reasoning as to why they made him pink instead is because they thought it would be too similar to Pac-Man. In actuality, the development team was having trouble on whether they wanted Kirby to be pink or yellow (With Sakurai wanting him to be the former, and Miyamoto wanting him to be the latter). Also, there is no official source claiming that they dropped the yellow coloration due to resembling Pac-Man too much.

** 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.

** ''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. 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.
** [[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]]. It shows up again when the streak continued in ''Mario Party 5.''
