* Beating ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' on his first go when he was trying to showcase how hard the game was.
* "THIS GAY KISS" In one of his later ''Bully'' videos.
** And later telling homophobes to deal with it in the subsequent video.
* How Dan dies in the final {{Westerado}} episode.
* Dan and Wot being able to get an interview with ''Creator/StevenMoffat''.
** It was even on several news sites.
* Anytime Dan completes a challenge.
* Despite [[spoiler:getting killed on the final base]] of the ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' permadeath, the fact that Dan made it there in the first place is pretty amazing.
* Dan coming up with the idea to hide behind the giant rock in order to shield himself from the meteors in ''VideoGame/SpaceEngineers''.
* Dan actually surviving his [[spoiler:''VideoGame/SpaceEngineers'']] ''Perma-Death''.
* Though their [[http://youtu.be/ucPE9mCp25U latest Father-and-Son-Day]] contains many fine moments, Dan [[http://youtu.be/ucPE9mCp25U?t=34m45s bailing out a second before his car is blown up by a missile]] surely stands out.
** Another moment that stands is Dan getting in a jet and [[http://youtu.be/ucPE9mCp25U?t=3m10s ending Steve's run with one shot in the first minute]].
* Dan making two whole games!
* Dan not only got [[spoiler:four seconds of]] exclusive footage from ''Videogame/JustCause3'', but he's also [[spoiler:getting to upload gameplay of it FIVE MONTHS EARLY!!]] Needless to say, this troper is hyped.
* [=DadCubed=] managing to push [[RobotWars Sir Killalot]] into the pit using ''Diotoir''. And the fight ended seven to five in Killalot's favor, due to a random judges' decision.
* As of May 2nd, 2016, Dan has completed a no-kills run on Hard Mode of MetalGearSolid2! In only 23 episodes!
* "The NerdCubed Ultimatum". Basically, a game Dan reviewed in the Hell series fixed most of its biggest issues, and the creators emailed him, asking him to remove the video since it was no longer accurate. He mentions possibly doing so since they asked him, until they threaten him, saying if he doesn't do it in 48 hours, they will take the matter up with "the relevant authorities". His response? Post a video calling out their bullshit, keep the original video up with an annotation to this new one, and point out every flaw in their threat. You have to admit, that takes balls.
