* Whenever Dan is on the verge of crashing and he pulls out of it, the scream he makes in doing so is always funny to hear.
** [[http://youtu.be/ucPE9mCp25U?t=7m40s Or when something is about to crash into him...]]
* In ''Aerofly FS'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QR0DzGS8Q2c&t=9m17s Dan gets a bit too playful with glider wings and ends up plummeting.]]
** In a future video where he plays ''Aerofly RC'' from the same developer, he even says that it is his favorite moment. The fact that it wound up in both of the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edFnlbHOmnI Nerd in]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYlHw81K14s a Nutshell"]] videos should attest to that.
* While many of Dan's Hell Videos entail a lot of moaning and deliberately setting out to be deadpan, Dan's reaction to the music which plays while driving a vehicle in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQj6LB0wLww Farm Expert 2016]] is practically joyful to watch. He likens the music to several cosmetic advertisment commercials, and eventually has to stop himself because he was enjoying himself ''too much''!
* What {{God}} does at the end of the ''VideoGame/{{Scribblenauts}}'' video. He walks up to a dead child...[[spoiler:and then starts [[VisualInnuendo doing press-ups on top of him]]]]. Cue Dan freaking out loudly.
* In his ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' he lands on a rooftop with several {{Mooks}} on it. He stands there for 7 seconds before some finally notices.
-->"The Bat's here!"
* The guards licking EYES! during a cut scene in ''VideoGame/HardTime''.
** Also from ''Hard Time'', when EYES! got arrested for open firing on the guards in the prison with a gun, the judge is in favor with EYES!.
** Note that when EYES! opens fire on several guards and almost kills all of them, he is ruled innocent, but when he simply picks up a pistol and does nothing with it, he is ruled guilty.
* Dan's reaction to a ghost train [[spoiler:killing his horse]].
-->"[[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOO]]! The train killed my horse! I had kept that horse the entire [[ClusterFBomb fucking game, and this stupid fucking ghost train dives in my stupid fucking ghost killed my stupid fucking horse!]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Everyone dies!]]
* How ''{{Cleverbot}}'' pronounces her name, and Dan's reaction to it.
* The plane noises Dan makes in ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'' whenever he restarts.
* Dan's reaction to the Guybrush Threepwood Statue, and ability to play as him in ''{{Star Wars}}: VideoGame/{{The Force Unleashed}} 2''.
* When Dan first tries to access his car in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'': Carmageddon
-->Into the alley, into the alley! (Several cars are jamming the alley) [[AttackAttackRetreatRetreat Out of the alley! Out of the alley!]]
* When Dan performs the final Coup de Grace (x2) on the Metal Gear RAY when playing VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance, the sheer [[CrazyAwesome spectacle]] of it leaves him speechless the first time. The second time just causes him to question whether it's a MetalGear game through his laughter.
-->"This is about as Metal Gear as a game is fucking ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey''! I don't even understand what's going on!"
* Dan making Kennith Kennithson a "pwetty pwincess" in his VideoGame/{{The Sims 3}} video.
* Dan's deformed avatar in ''Franchise/HarryPotter'': Kinect.
* Dan's laughing whenever something ridiculous happens.
* A [=DadCubed=] example. When playing ''VideoGame/{{Skate}} 3'', Steve remarks on his character.
-->'''Steve:''' I've made the character a bit chubby by the way. [[TakeThat It's a bit like Dan]].\\
'''Dan (offscreen):''' '''[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck you]]!'''\\
'''Steve:''' [[{{Troll}} Ahahahaha!]]
** Another one from Dan's own video of ''Skate 3'', '''''[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential ATTACK HUG!]]'''''
* Dan lets his British driving knowledge get the better of him during the decidedly German [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PKgYV_W_SA OMSI Bus Simulator]].
-->'''Dan:''' ''*driving in the left lane*'' There's a guy on the wrong side of the road....OH IT'S ME! ''*drives over to the right lane*''
* From his full ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'' LP:
** After beating up a jock in the shower, Dan is crouching and sneaking right behind another jock in the pool room to avoid getting seen. As Dan mentions that he's being sneaky, another student walks by.
--> '''Sheldon:''' Hi Jimmy!
** When kneeing Ted the prep in the balls in front of his girlfriend/first cousin, Dan says "Right in the cousin-maker!"
* [[spoiler:[=NightHood=] & Decoy]] interrupting Dan's ''VideoGame/{{Snake}}'' video.
* From the ''Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag'' video:
** Noticing an odd shaped shadow appear on the beach as he comes ashore, only to turn around and see his own ship falling out of the sky into the ocean apropos of nothing. Dan is understandably confused.
-->'''Dan comes board his now beached ship:''' I'll be honest lads, you kind of ''[[PrecisionFStrike fucked]]'' the boat.
** Encountering a jaguar with some odd [[GoodBadBugs pathing]] issues.
--> '''Dan doing a wildlife documentary:''' And here we see the wild jaguar confused ''*breaks out in laughter as the jaguar falls off a platform*'' and falling off of a platform. ''*{{jumpcut}}*'' Ah, and after a little while we see the jaguar has to its home plinth. Oh its seen me, oh and its confused, oh and its confused, and its dropped off again. The jaguar, natures really stupid fucking creature.
* [[SurpriseCreepy Barbie's inspiration wall.]]
* Martyn getting crushed by a plane door in ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV Grand Theft Auto V]]''. Dan decides that nothing can top that so he ends the video there.
* [[http://youtu.be/sP-S0pTY4RM?t=2m30s In Dan's "commute" challenge video]] for ''[[{{VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV}} GTAV]]'', there's TheReveal of Dan's horn being [[{{Series/TheApprentice}} "Montagues And Capulets"]].
** About a minute later, the following brief exchange occurs:
--> '''Passing Driver:''' ''(honks horn)'' Cocksucker! ''(drives off)''
--> '''Dan:''' Yeah, well...''(honks "Montagues and Capulets" horn)''
* [[http://youtu.be/f5xAAn8fmQA?t=28m4s About 28 minutes into his]] ''I Wanna Be The Guy: Gaiden'' video, he finally figures out he can destroy an obstacle that gave him several minutes worth of grief. His joy is short-lived.
--> '''Dan:''' I did it! Woohoo! ''*plunges into water*'' '''''OH, FOR [[{{Angrish}} FAAA-HAA-HAAAA-HAAAARGH!]]'''''
* In his video on ''Sir, You Are Being Hunted'', he is calmly spying on some enemies near a campfire. But then he looks to the left...
--> '''Dan:''' Hmm...yeah, we can- '''WHAT...THE FUCK...WHAT...WHAAAAAAT'''...is that tentacled monstrosity?
* Dan getting crushed by a glitchy boat in ''VideoGame/FarCry3''. He even breaks his perma-death rule when the majority of commentors agreed it was unfair.
* Whatever [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0q7hK6T_E0 "this"]] is.
* "I think I broke trust when I broke necks."
** Also from OMSI 2:
--> [[http://youtu.be/_begE8ukjnc?t=8m56s "Ffffffffaaaaaaaack yoooooooouuuuu."]]
* In his Spider-Man 2 playthrough, after throwing a bunch of enemies off a roof he says this gem:
--> '''Dan:''' Spider-Man, hero of many, murderer of some.
** In the same video, right at the beginning:
--> '''Dan:''' I'm ''Spiderma''-- shit, I left the web fluid at home. '''*SMAAAAAAAAASSHHHH*'''
* In the Worms Crazy Golf video, Dan decides to [[DisproportionateRetribution kill a sheep]] [[ExtremeOmnivore who ate his ball]] by whacking golf balls at it. His first golf ball flies right over the sheep and nails a groundskeeper, prompting him to commit suicide.
* At around 15:32 in his video on ''VideoGame/CookServeDelicious'', he is casually flipping through the list of upgrades, but then glances at the entry for "Enhance Security", which uses an image of a handgun. This prompts a hilarious, '''''"What the fuck?!"'''''
** While he is serving ice cream...
--> '''Dan:''' "Sprinkles is "P". Why? Why are sprinkles "P"?" ''*Toilet minigame appears*'' [[ToiletHumour "Oh, now I have to pee..."]]
*** Later on...
--> '''Dan:'''"What's sprinkles? Sprinkles is "P". (beat) And then...[[ToiletHumour a toilet comes up.]]"
* ''Airport Simulator 2014'',
** Facing a seven minute wait before he can carry out another task, Dan decides to quickly explain the Five Stages of Grief. Come stage 2 (anger):
--> '''Dan:''' '''Get off the plane quicker you fat ''[[AtomicFBomb FAAAAaaaaAAAAaaaaAAAAaaaaAAAAA]]'''''-! ''[[CurseCutShort (cut to stage 3)]]''
** And just before that, his immediate reaction to the long wait times:
--> '''Dan:''' Help me! I'm trapped in the worst airport in the '''WOOOOORRRRRLLLLLDDDDD'''!
* Dan [[http://youtu.be/q5UNwKw0XOc?t=5m52s hiding a guards head in some salad]] in his many kills play-through of ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4M1Elm6PgDE&t=11m11s This montage of bizzarre background objects]] occurs when Dan goes wandering around away from his train during ''[[{{VideoGame/RailWorks}} Train Simulator 2014]]'', mostly involving houses that look like faces...[[SubvertedTrope and one that doesn't]].
** [[{{Series/CoronationStreet}} Coronation Chicken Street]]
** '''''[[GoodBadBugs GRAVEL PRANKSTERRRRR!]]'''''
** [[PsychicPowers Behold, I can levitate a building! Nrrrrrrrr...]]
*** [[OverlyLongGag Behold, I can lose my train! Nrrrrrrrr...]]
* Doc Mitchell from ''Fallout: New Vegas'' tells Dan that when he says a word to say the first word that comes to mind. Dan answers every one with "Penis" and almost says that when Doc Mitchell asks "Mother", but corrects himself before he can finish saying the word.
* During the first ''The Sims 3'' video, Kennith nearly falls into the toilet from having the Clumsy trait.
-->'''Dan:''' I'm so glad I bought that life preserver!
* "The opposite of a {{LEGO}} Minifigure of the Queen...is Spiderman.
* '''''[[http://youtu.be/IP_PILUjJio?t=40m36s "Oh, FUCK I'M GONNA SCORE WITH THE GOALIE!"]]'''''
* In his video on ''Hack And Slash'', Dan gets a bit playful with hacking a nest of turtles, and...''[[http://youtu.be/UfDbj1yoVVo?t=15m56s "Oh, FUCK FUCK FUCK! Too many turtles!"]]''
** Later on, he tries to sort the problem out carefully, then gives up and sets the spawner to spawn "ALL THE TURTLES IN THE WORLD!", which he sings to the tune of the last two lines of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cwm_Rhondda "Cwm Rhondda"]].
* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b97GGOlAKbE&t=15m12s Part 11 of his Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force playthrough]], Dan's gleeful shooting spree through Voyager with his brand-new photon torpedo launcher is absolutely hilarious.
* One of Dan's biggest fits of hysterical laughter occurred in his ''Driving Simulator 2013'' video, where he becomes so bored that [[http://youtu.be/NC3LbLp6Fx8?t=14m23s he decides to drive on the wrong side of an autobahn and crash into another car]]. [[spoiler: His car continues, while the other car is sent flying.]]
* [[http://youtu.be/IBgcnzAm_IA?t=1m22s "Honey, why is the dog beatboxing?"]]
* [[http://youtu.be/HhVlqpSJVwc?t=18m30s Dan's progression from fear to anger]] when he finds [[spoiler:the fake mechanical spider]] in ''{{VideoGame/Limbo}}'', after spending the rest of the video avoiding [[spoiler:the real one]].
** Later on, he rolls a boulder and dodges it, causing the spider to get crushed underneath it. Cue momentary pause before he enjoys finally beating the spider. [[spoiler:Too bad it was still alive, as the GilliganCut that follows his usual conclusion states.]]
** And ''then'', after [[spoiler:ripping off the spider's last remaining leg:]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Dan:''' *stares in silent shock*]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Spider leg:''' *twitch twitch*]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Dan:''' *scream*]]
* In ''[[{{VideoGame/RailWorks}} Train Simulator 2015]]'', Dan exploits the way that the game simulates the Doppler Effect, discovering that the effect even extends to moving the camera separate from the train. He discovers some church bells, and [[http://youtu.be/sxFFSM1V0Bk?t=17m47s hilarity, combined with DJing, ensues]].
* ''[[VideoGame/WWEVideoGames WWE 2K15:]]''
** In a sadly scrapped video, Dan is playing a ladder match. He suddenly encounters a glitch that causes everything to go berserk and ''makes the game crash''. Dan once again has a fit of hysterical laughter upon seeing it. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyOrHelNvy0 What transpired really must be seen to be believed]].
** A similar thing happened in his actual WWE 2k15 video that was truly [[http://youtu.be/YhZpZu0kTUc?t=16m22s Game Breaking]]
** Pretty much every line out of Dan's mouth during the [[Wrestling/RandyOrton Randy Orton]]/[[Wrestling/BrockLesnar Brock Lesnar]] match, with some of the notable ones being:
*** His dialogue every time he does an RKO.
*** "Ref, you don't ''have'' to give a shit about what the bald man is doing! Just saying!" (after Paul Heyman distracts the referee while Dan's pinning Lesnar)
*** "[[PunctuatedPounding WHY! WON'T! YOU! DIE?!]] Oh god...[[SanitySlippage did you counter my punch with your]] ''[[NoSell face]]''?!"
** From his Royal Rumble challenge:
-->And the final person in, I hope it's a massive, massive girl. That's what I'm sort of hoping for. ''(Entrant #30: Brock Lesnar)'' Oh, ''[[ThisIsGonnaSuck fuck off!]]''
** During his [[BlindfoldedVision I Can't See You!]] [[SelfImposedChallenge challenge]], he messes up the character order during a royal rumble and consequently mistakes an NPC for the character he was supposed to be playing. He goes on to try and defeat himself, succeeds at defeating himself, and plays on for 10 minutes unaware that he had been eliminated and [[EpicFail wasn't actually controlling anything]]. Made all the funnier by his subsequent [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tba6BFQPXrM#t=277 commentary]] on the unedited footage.
** One video has Dan and Emma playing all the matches on the Wrestlemania 31 card. They run into a bit of a problem at the Divas tag team match: they don't have the Paige DLC, and since they can't create custom divas in the game, they decide to create a male version of Paige instead, to stand in for the real one. And since mixed-gender tag matches are't possible in this game, they have to use male superstars to stand in for the other three divas (AJ Lee and the Bellas). So we have CM Punk (AJ Lee's real life husband) and "Paige"(a pale skinned man with long black hair and a black and purple unitard) vs the Usos (the only other non-DLC tag team with the twins gimmick in the game), who are standing in for the Bellas. Dan claims that you won't even notice the difference.
* Dan spends [[http://youtu.be/jDkXrHlaI3A?t=10m20s the last three minutes]] of his video on ''[=QbQbQb=]'' trying desperately to remember the word "pinata". It's only right at the end of his standard outtro when he finally, and loudly, remembers it.
* In the Motion Commotion challenge, Dan crashes his plane headlong into the ground while trying to land. The failure message noted that [[SkewedPriorities he hadn't deployed his landing gear]]. Made even funnier when, a couple crashes later, a failure message notes that the vehicle was destroyed, meaning that the game ''should'' have been able to recognize the primary problem of that failure.
* In the Raton Canyon Rampage episode of Little and Cubed, Dan and Martyn are playing a TDM where a player on a jet-ski has to flee from another player in a Lazer. Eventually, Martyn tries to kill Dan who was just sitting on his jet-ski waiting for him, but Martyn clips the Lazer's wing on a tree and goes straight into the water. Dan's laugh is beyond [[https://youtu.be/c7b5z0lMw40?t=11m40s hilarious]].
* In one of the [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV GTAV heist setup missions]], Dan tells the team that they will be doing it nice and stealthily...and proceeds to drive through the mission area in a pimped-out pink supercar, running over the rest of the team in the process.
** The second and third Heist videos are a cavalcade of hilarious [[SurroundedByIdiots Surrounded By Idiots]] moments on Dan's part--and in the first he's surrounded by just one idiot, namely Martyn.
-->'''Dan:''' You said we had to kill someone!
-->'''Martyn:''' That's what he... he said something about doing something.
-->'''Dan:''' (sputtering) What d'you mean ''something'' about doing ''something''?!?
* In ''Google Feud'', the game challenges him to complete the search term "do birds _____". After some thought, Dan opts to enter "fart". It turns out to be the second answer. Dan just can't contain himself.
* In his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZX42GDm8bQ Haze]] video, he ragequits because ''of a cutscene''.
--> '''Dan:''' There! That's Haze, it's awful! Ergh...
* In his video of ''Farm Expert 2016'', he takes note of the music that starts playing whenever you enter a vehicle sounding like music from "embarrassing cream commercials". He then decides to make a commercial of his own, [[https://youtu.be/hQj6LB0wLww?t=3m6s sending him into a giggle fit.]]
* The entirety of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cc77zmcSVXc Nerdł Plays...FaceRig]] video.
--> '''Dan (as a female anthropormorphic fox)''': I don't understand question, what is...what is [[FurryFandom furry]]?
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSQk9-2i-8E Nerdł's Hell... The Alien Wasteland]]. The objective of the game is to get 9 petrol cans before you're killed by aliens that come in waves. [[spoiler:The thing is, once you grab the can, you can drop [[GameBreaker infinite petrol cans]] with it, which means you can beat the game on '''Wave 1''' just by infinitely throwing all petrol cans in your truck.]]
* When doing a challenge in ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'' to perform the pizza delivery missions (which, by the by, are infamous for [[ThatOneSidequest how difficult they are]]), Dan gets ''angry'' as the video goes on. And it is hilarious to watch.
-->'''In-game Woman:''' Get a job!\\
* The end of the Tony Hawk: American Wasteland [[https://youtu.be/OWbDrRCcgc4?t=19m51s video]].
-->'''Dan:''' And on that note...
-->'''Protagonist:''' Thanks again for watching my stuff!
* Dan [[https://youtu.be/7mGXq9fthTU?t=8s attempts to read legal stuff]] in VideoGame/TransformersDevastation.
* The [[https://youtu.be/kiBNyhP6BGI?t=21m51s entire last quarter of the reboot announcements]] shown during the 12-hour livestream. [[spoiler: "The Big One" that Dan was teasing people about in [[https://youtu.be/aNM9HjgEMnA?t=1m16s a previous video about the Reboot]] was, in fact, the faux TearJerker [[TheReveal reveal]] that he was to quit his main role of Nerdcubed [[TakeUpMySword and give his title and responsibilities to another person]]. Who did he have in mind to become the next Nerdcubed? None other than [[WebVideo/StuartAshen Ashens]]. Following this reveal, he began to have a long interview with Stuart as to how he going to start his new job. Later on in the discussion, Stuart then straight-up stated that juggling both his own channel and the Nerdcubed [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere would be too much for him]] and abruptly left the Skype call that he and Dan shared, despite his attempts at convincing him. Of course, Dan later revealed [[TrollingCreator that the whole thing was a joke that he cleverly set up a day in advance.]] To say the least, the Twitch livestream and Nerdcubed subreddit ''exploded'' in insults towards Dan for playing them for complete fools.]]
** Once [[spoiler: Ashens leaves, the screen cuts to black, overlaid with the sound of Dan working a rotary phone. After a few seconds of dial tone, the other person Dan had mentioned asking to be the new Nerdcubed responds thusly:]]
-->[[spoiler:'''[[TheCynicalBrit Totalbiscuit:]]''' For the last time, [[BigNo NO!]]]]
* Dan goes through his annual [[RunningGag WWE Game Roster Rundown]] for [[VideoGame/WWEVideoGames WWE 2K16]], but this time he includes the Divas.
