** ''Dokapon'' is a constant victim of this, largely due to story progress constantly being impeded by the three fighting with each other to progress the story. As a result, a good third of the series leans towards {{Filler}} albeit enjoyable Filler.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: After ''Super Mario 3D World'' drew criticisms over ArcFatigue due to only having two videos a week, the following round of ''Fortune Street'''s Mario Circuit received daily uploads, resulting in what many considered much better pacing.

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.

** [[spoiler:Jon]]'s continuous winning streak in ''Mario Party 4'' caused quite a few people to quit watching the LP; the other half seemed to think he deserved it after [[spoiler: the train wreck of bad luck ''Mario Party 3'' brought him]]. It showed up again when the streak continued in ''Mario Party 5''.

It showed up again when the streak continued in ''Mario Party 5''.5'', but is a bit more forgivable to some because [[spoiler: his bad luck is still in play - even becoming TheChewToy for ''Toy Dream'' - and he lost the first two boards so it was known he could not get a clean sweep]].

* 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 Origins as the prime example, since they had great fun with it, but it's among their least popular series.

** Wario, for his line from the first two ''Mario Party'' games: [[MemeticMutation "Doh I missed!"]] It's gotten to the point where he's referenced in every project even if he isn't in it.

** Fortune Street or more specifically the Guy's way of playing. They play the game as if it is Monopoly which is not the most effective way of winning. Some think this is a detriment to the series (especially in Robbin Hood Ruins which took so long precisely because of this play style), others don't care or think the complaints are coming from StopHavingFunGuys.

* 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.

Lampshaded in one of the last videos in the series, when they comment that had Jon and Tim not been guiding Chugga early on, the LP likely would've been way longer, since Chugga didn't quite have a sense for the exploration yet. Subverted by then as well, as the two slowly started pulling back more and more as Chugga got more and more used to the game's mechanics and exploratory elements.

** A minor example during ''Mario Party 3'', after NCS became the majority board winner. While editing the video, Chugga left a note stating that he was still leading in the detailed stats, so NCS hadn't officially won the LP yet. This received some harsh feedback in the comments, accusing Chugga of being a poor sport. [[note]]He eventually gave NCS the victory, and it's unknown if the backdraft had any influence on this decision.[[/note]]

** ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid''. Episode 18. Dear. GOD. Fans exploded when Emile reached an area in the Wrecked Ship where he could Shinespark up to a Reserve Tank, unsuccessfully bomb jumped up there (being blocked off by a Speed Boost block), and then walked away and grabbed the Gravity Suit instead, baffling Jon, Tim, and nearly everyone watching. Reactions included bewilderment, confusion, disbelief, and absolute rage, with many commenters outright insulting Emile over his behavior. Several people who had previously cried foul towards Tim and Jon constantly helping Emile out throughout the playthough even ended up retracting their complaints, stating that the incident completely justified the two's presence.

** 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. 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.

Episode 18 of the ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' LP (of which Emile was playing blind) further fed the detractors' fire, due to Emile walking away from a Reserve Tank that he needed to Shinespark up to, after trying and failing to [[RunningGag bomb jump]] up there; those against Emile's presence of the channel quickly used this incident to paint Emile as a brain-dead idiot who's way too full of himself.

** ''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.

This got better after the completion of ''VideoGame/RaymanLegends'', as the rest of the series is now uploaded regularly, so while the videos themselves are still uncut and focus on Chugga attempting different tricks to learn the game, it feels much faster due to having three videos a week instead of just one.
