Added DiffLines:

* CrazyAwesome: Yami Marik. He's one of the few characters LK doesn't really do a piss-take of; instead, his AxCrazy personality from the original series is largely preserved, if with more pop-culture references added.

** Take the already ''insanely'' catchy Music/LadyGaga song "''Poker Face''", mix it with one of the best [[CatchPhrase catchphrases]] in the show, and what do you get? "Bruh-Bruh-Bruh-Brooklyn Rage, Bruh-Bruh-Brooklyn Rage…"

* NightmareFuel:
** There's Yugi's dream in Episode 16, the 2001 parody. The creepy music coupled with the overall Satanic look of it nearly made a few people afraid to go to sleep for fear of dreaming about it.
** In the fourth "Evil Council" video, Pegasus, with a little help from the possessed teddy bear, [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies resurrects his dead wife Cecilia the old-fashioned way]]. Needless to say, the appropriately edited image of Cecilia will come across as shocking to those unprepared.
** Noah is creepy. Not that he wasn't creepy in the original, but here…
*** "Hush, little Mokuba, don't say a word,
::::Noah's going to keep you in the virtual world
::::And if your brother tries to moan
::::Noah's going turn his body into stone…" Brrr, creepy.
** Almost everything [[OmnicidalManiac Melvin]] does qualifies.
** Seto in Season Zero. He's actually nice and friendly... while still having a CreepyMonotone, making his kindness sort of creepy.
** In-universe example for Yusei:
--> '''Jack''': Come on, Crow. Let's go play card games while standing completely still [[PunctuatedForEmphasis on...the...ground.]]



** Season 3. Even LittleKuriboh didn't like the Virtual World arc.

to:

** Season 3. Even Not helping is that season 3 from the original was considered this trope as well (even LittleKuriboh didn't like the Virtual World arc.arc).



* ShoutOut: When Mai claims to have ESP, it may have been a reference to ''Manga/{{Mai The Psychic Girl}}''

* ValuesDissonance: Had episode 21 been made in this day and age, the transphobic jokes would've most likely ensued quite a lot of flack (although most people don't seem too bothered by them).
* WinBackTheCrowd: After the end of the Virtual World arc, [=LittleKuriboh=] ''stepped his game up''. The jokes became more based on the characters and story, fourth wall jokes and references where there but toned down, and it started following along with the actual plot of ''Yu-Gi-Oh!''. This was ''exceedingly'' well received by the audience; in fact, episode 61 was considered so good that it has been compared to fellow popular abridged series ''[[WebVideo/Dragon BallZAbridged Dragon Ball Z Abridged]]'' in terms of quality.

* GenrePopularizer / FromClonesToGenre: There are enough AbridgedSeries that it's just a genre now. You can tell because people are ripping off jokes from lesser known series, not just the ''Yu-Gi-Oh'' and ''Naruto'' ones.
* GrowingTheBeard: The first few episodes are not very good -- the voices are slow, the audio quality is poor, the jokes are weaker, and so forth. The beard starts coming in around Episode 10 as Little Kuriboh's voice acting, recording software, and writing noticeably improve, and it's fully grown come Season 2.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: Episode 36 does this to Episode 3 as the scenes that were played straight referenced scenes that were parodied in the earlier episode.
