* BadassDecay: Thing do not go very well for the Law after his defeat at the hands of Brian, as well as [[spoiler:being convicted of using an aimbot]]. He basically goes from the most famous gamer in the world to a unmotivated loser.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: At the beginning of the very first episode, Brian is attacked and mugged by a couple of RTS players, who jump on a tandem bicycle and ''fly away on magical rainbow sparkles''.

* {{Bizarro Episode}}: Episode 8 of Season 1. A common complaint is the way-too-fast-pacing. None of this is helped by the fact that the episode doesn't transition smoothly (How does Brian [[spoiler: get expelled and suddenly own someone else's arcade in one day?]]) and as a result, some viewers may try to spend the entire episode trying to figure out if it was a {{Dream Sequence}}.
** To be fair, the extreme abruptness of that episode is very much PlayedForLaughs.

* ClicheStorm: It's the standard high school drama as it's existed since the eighties... ''[[RecycledInSpace but with games]]''!
** However, since it's a parody and an over-the-top WorldOfHam, the clichés are also a crucial mechanism of the show's humor.
** {{Lampshade}}d in Season 2 Episode 2, where there is a segment where several characters dress in stereotypical '80s fashion.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Wendell and [=ShotBot=], in Season 2.

* NightmareFuel: The scene in the finale where Law goes nigh-insane, taking a Nintendo 64 controller and swinging it around his head when [[spoiler:a customer asks to buy a Napalm drink]]. Brian just so happens to be a bystander and looks on in horror. We don't see the scene's resolution, but it is grimly insinuated that the customer gets killed.
** Doesn't help that the scene immediately afterward has Law saying '''[[ThePerfectCrime "NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW!"]]''', and then having it cut to Brian with a scarred look on his face.

* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler:Freddie.]]
* TrueArtIsAngsty: Season 3 to some extent.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Creator/FreddieWong directed it, so you know they're going to be great.
* {{Wangst}}: Ki's appearance as an emo nihilist after [[spoiler:losing the election]] has this written all over it, almost to the point where it becomes annoying.
* TheWoobie: Brian, especially in episode 5.

*** Ted, somewhat. His father, Freddie Wong, seems to absolutely detest him, despite Ted having nothing but respect for the man. [[spoiler:It gets shattered when Freddie dies in season 3, even though it took Ted the whole episode for the realization to dawn upon him.]]

** Drift King is also very popular with fans for his LargeHam tendencies and the fact that he's actually a kind person who only wants Ted to join drift racing.

* AngstWhatAngst: Ted doesn't find the news of [[spoiler:his dad's death]] to be alarming at first, deciding to carry on his life as if nothing happened. He spends the rest of the episode going through the five stages of grief as reality hits him like a brick wall.

* HoYay: At the end of the finale, there's a particularly homoerotic scenario with Law and New Law. The Laws are planning to go somewhere on motorcycle, but it's only single-seated. New Law says he has a small butt, and Law adds to that by saying that he noticed it. [[LampshadeHanging New Law then wishes for the situation not to get awkward.]]
