[[AwesomeMcCoolname Kung-Fu Jesus]] is a DeadpanSnarker [[LetsPlay Let's Player]] and Website/SomethingAwful goon with a pretty CreepyMonotone who is [[INeedAFreakingDrink not afraid to drink and game]], formerly known as Beaver Emancipator [[MeaningfulRename before the name was assumed to be too sexual]]. He often plays alongside his friends LetsPlay/{{Pokecapn}} and/or LetsPlay/{{Medibot}}, including the infamous LetsPlay of ''LetsPlay/SonicTheHedgehog2006''. The majority of his work is in their LetsPlays, but he also has several of his own.

Creator/TwistedPixel commissioned him, [=MyNameIsKaz=], medibot, and pokecapn (generally collectively known as "The Posse") to provide commentary for their game ''VideoGame/TheGunstringer''.

His manned LP credentials include:
* ''VideoGame/MegaManX8'' (medibot serves as guest commenter after several videos)
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' (medibot sticks through all the way, but a rotating cast of four others come and go as he marathons the game in two sessions)
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' (incomplete)
* ''VideoGame/ShadowComplex'' (pokecapn came in for the post-game content.)
* ''VideoGame/GodHand'' (a cast of well over a dozen guest commentators rotate through at random)
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' (With pokecapn, [=MyNameIsKaz=], Dreamsower, Mio Bison, and medibot)
* ''VideoGame/BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden'': (Streamed on twitch with Pokecapn, Kaz, and medibot)
* ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' (With pokecapn, Kaz and medibot)
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' (Streamed on twitch with Kaz)

He also has a Twitch.tv Stream, which can be found [[http://www.twitch.tv/spacekop/ here.]]


[[folder:Mega Man X8]]
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first several videos feature talking over cutscenes and no guest commentary, which would be unheard of in later LetsPlays.

[[folder:Kingdom Hearts II]]
* CutShort: KFJ lost all his video assets when a hard drive crashed, but he made a new save and re-completed the LP with medibot.

* AllThereInTheManual: Well, all there in the art book, but thankfully, Kung-Fu Jesus has the art book so he can explain enemy types and their origins.
* BringMyBrownPants: From the ninth and final video:
--> '''Kung-Fu Jesus''': I'm pretty sure I would mess my pants if I was [[BossBattle in]] [[PhysicalGod Amaterasu's]] [[GiantSpider situation]].
* CutShort: This LP stopped after nine videos, only six of which (Parts 1-5 and 9) are available on his Website/YouTube channel. The Posse occasionally makes references to its incomplete nature.
* DealWithTheDevil: The BackStory for the Yellow Imp with the drum is deemed to be this, with him being a drummer who wanted ToBeAMaster...
** KlingonPromotion: ...so he killed all of the other ones.
** {{Recurring|Boss}} MiniBoss: Their designation of him as a result.
* {{Foreshadowing}}
-->'''Vprisoner''': That dog has an interesting scarf.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': That he does. It might even be significant later... [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial but don't quote me on that.]]
* HellOfAHeaven: Downplayed.
-->'''Vprisoner''': That's great. I went to a Japanese heaven just like I always wanted.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Sweet. How was it, bro?\\
'''Vprisoner''': Eh, it's a little bit overrated. Everybody's always talking about it. I mean it's really opened my eyes to just how blessed I am here on this Earth.
* InHarmonyWithNature: Kung-Fu Jesus and his {{Special Guest}}s seem to be this with respect to VideoGame/{{Okami}}, but [[SceneryPorn it's hard to blame them]].
* OnceUponATime: The introduction to the LP.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': OnceUponATime in a faraway land, [[Creator/CloverStudios some developers]] created a fantastic, fantastic game. A game to [[DuelingGames rival]] even ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Zelda]]'', which came out at almost the same time. This game is called VideoGame/{{Okami}}.
* OpenSaysMe:
--> '''Vprisoner''': Gates are trivial with [[SwordBeam Power Slash]].
* ProlongedPrologue: "My God, this is the giant tutorial level. It's horrible. And by horrible, I mean very obligatory."
* ShoutOut: Several, as usual.
** TakeThat: Also several, as usual.
* ShownTheirWork: Kung-Fu Jesus shows that he is reading his LP's thread for information, such as the [[UsefulNotes/{{Shinto}} mythological analogues for Amaterasu and Susano.]]
* SpecialGuest: Vprisoner shows up in the third video, continuing into the fourth. A new guest comes in for the fifth video.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: See {{Foreshadowing}}.
* TheyFightCrime: The mortal-goddess dichotomy is up front and center in one of the videos, leading Kung-Fu Jesus to say that the reason Amaterasu has trouble with certain tasks is that a mortal isn't there to help her.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: After [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Yomigami]] shows up:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Amaterasu looks thoroughly nonplussed.
* ViewersAreMorons: Many comments are made on how the game seems to assume this.
* WhosOnFirst: A joke involving "dealing", with Vprisoner meaning "keeping cool when stressed" and Kung-Fu Jesus meaning "drug dealing" happens in the fourth video.
* AWizardDidIt: "Anything is possible in the magical land Nippon."

[[folder:Shadow Complex]]
* SpecialGuest: LetsPlay/{{pokecapn}} in the post-game material.

[[folder:God Hand]]
* AllMenArePerverts: [[OnlySaneMan Except]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} medibot]].
* AndThatsTerrible:
-->'''The Roll''': [The torch] breaks too damn easy. AndThatsTerrible.
** Later, [=MyNameIsKaz=] name checks it directly from the ComicBook/LexLuthor meme.
* ArtisticLicenseReligion: PlayedForLaughs.
-->'''medibot''': Krispy Kremes are one of {{God}}'s gifts to mankind. [[Literature/TheBible They were originally handed down to the Jews on top of Mount Sinai]] [[Literature/BookOfExodus during their Exodus from Egypt.]] That's why we eat doughnuts during Passover.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': ...because they're ''kosher''.\\
'''medibot''': Right. Because... uh... when they were traveling through the desert, they didn't have time for their bread to rise... [[DeusExMachina But then God gave them doughnuts]], so we all eat doughnuts.
* AssociationFallacy: PlayedForLaughs. For example, this one from medibot.
-->'''medibot''': I own a dog, and all dogs are mammals. Therefore, I own all mammals.
* ApocalypseHow: According to medibot and Kung-Fu Jesus, some form of a Class 3... for Franchise/{{Pokemon}} on the world, also known as "Poképocalypse".
* BasementDweller: Schizo Guy, apparently.
* BigInternationalClubs: Apparently one of these commissioned Kaz to build a bridge to Jupiter, possibly in order to pursue medibot's teacher, the inventor of nisendo, who fled there to escape an international authority.
* ComesGreatResponsibility: "Great damage, or great responsibility?"
* CallBack: pokecapn references LetsPlay/SonicTheHedgehog2006 when talking about being able to miss jumps by small, nerve-wracking margins.
* CannotTellAJoke: medibot, at least a straight joke. He does know this adage about demons' reverence and pizza, or at least that's how he heard it. He was hungry.
* CarpetOfVirility: medibot is a type 1 apparently. He says his brain is not in the right body because "there is no hair on the nipples".
* ComicallyMissingThePoint:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': I always wanted to be an air traffic controller.\\
'''[[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} medibot]]''': I always wanted to be a [[UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]] controller.
* CriticalExistenceFailure:
** In Stage 6, the editing on a video shows a procured {{katana|sAreJustBetter}} spontaneously cease to exist because Kung-Fu Jesus died.
-->'''IlluminatusVespucci''': Bye bye, katana.
** Also, [[OneWingedAngel Demon]] [[HornyDevils Shannon]] dies without Gene landing a killing blow at all.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Belze is the creator of "Belze Boots", shoes for demons filled with pure evil.
* DanceBattler: medibot studies "disco fighting", which, according to Kung-Fu Jesus, is both stylish ''and'' deadly.
* [[AWizardDidIt A Demon Did It]]: How the perpetual fire on torches used as melee weapons apparently stays lit.
-->'''[[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} medibot]]''': Demon magic!
* DieChairDie: KFJ dropkicks a random street sign into oblivion. For no reason.
-->'''Kaz''': Take that, sign!
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': You fucking sign! Don't come back here anymore! YouKilledMyFather!
** Also, later:
-->'''medibot''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext You just broke that disco couch!]]\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Fuck yo' couch!
* DontExplainTheJoke:
-->'''Medibot''': We call it the Gene Four Stomp. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Because you stomped him four times.]]
* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: A [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Medibot]] specialty, also adopted by others as well at times.[[invoked]]
* ExplodingBarrels:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': This is an ExplodingBarrel. You can tell it's an exploding barrel because it's ''red''.
* FlatWhat:
-->'''medibot''': The inch-high dick.\\
'''Kaz''': ...What.
* GenderFlip: One of Link is discussed. The game they're thinking of is either ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Brassiere]]'' or ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Bongarina of Time/Bongos of Time]]''.
* GetRichQuickScheme: medibot's "salad salad bowl", a bowl of salad that is, itself, composed of salad. Kung-Fu Jesus thinks that probably has a copyright on it already. In the same video, he mentions "strawberry carbonara".
* TheGlassesComeOff: He talks about how [[EvilCounterpart Azel]] only being likely to decide on taking off his CoolShades when the situation got bad enough.
* [[SugarWiki/GushingAboutShowsYouLike Gushing About Games You Like]]:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': This game is so fucking awesome!
* {{Hellevator}}: Name checked, but averted.
* ILied:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': My name is Kung-Fu Jesus, and I do kung fu in my spare time--no, I don't.
* IdiotSavant: Autistic savant ''vegetable''. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* IncomingHam[=/=]HamToHamCombat: The introduction to the "[[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4rpvf_god-hand-challenges-2_videogames God Hand Challenges 2]]" video is an exercise in ham before the introductions themselves.
* LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics: Apparently men with beards are 10% to 30% more likely to have beards than men without beards. However, [=IlluminatusVespucci=] thinks they might have to have a survey to be sure, but it's good to have a concrete range if you're going to publish something like that.
* NoodleIncident:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': And apparently, we have the Great Cornholio with us again. Anyway, you have to fight two-\\
'''medibot''': I thought I poisoned him?\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Hmm, I thought so too. Unfortunately, it turns out arsenic is only good against humans.
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught: In the second fight against [[KillerGorilla Gorilla]] [[WrestlerInAllOfUs Mask]].
-->'''Kaz''': [[NoFairCheating He pulled out a foreign object!]]\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[EasilyDistractedReferee If the ref didn't see it, then it didn't happen.]]
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6vohb_god-hand-7-5-the-four-devas-leader_videogames Kung-Fu Jesus, Kaz, and medibot instruct on how to passively and actively observe demons as different from humans.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The proclivity for ghosts to not float away into space, being with a volume but no mass, is identified as them just feeling like acting like gravity affects them.
* OurSoulsAreDifferent: According to [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} medibot]], only souls, whether demonic or human, can block attacks, so [[DoAndroidsDream robots can't, since they have no souls]].
* PalsWithJesus: According to [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} medibot]], he traveled back in time to shortly before the birth of Jesus. As it turns out, pokecapn is his clone, and can save people for a price.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord: "Perceptitude", whatever that means.
* ProductPlacement: Parodied when the ''Staples'' of all companies is chosen as Kung-Fu Jesus' sponsor. They spend about two and a half minutes advertising for Staples products around them, up to and including ''holding the LP hostage'' if people don't buy Staples products.
* [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom Punched or Kicked Across the Room]]: Done many times by Gene. This is once exclaimed upon by The Roll when a female enemy with a whip is sent flying off into the distance over a ledge.
-->'''The Roll''': ''Goal!''
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Kung-Fu Jesus gives one as a eulogy for Stage 6. Oddly, he thinks it's one of his favorite stages in the game.
* TheReveal: Kung-Fu Jesus is from Nevada.
* RidiculousExchangeRates: "Future medibot Points", which go toward prizes (like for finding out the identity of the God of Helsinki) at a future date.
* QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything: From challenges video 3:
-->'''medibot''': You dip the sword in demons blood, and that increases its magic...ness. It makes it very magical. Probably due to something involving Quantums.
* RunningGag:
** Every random enemy type has a collective name. Every random NPC who is not named in game has no name.
** In later videos, The Posse each using incorrect names for themselves.
* SelfDeprecation:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': You look like a real jerk!\\
'''pokecapn''': Well I ''am'' an [=LPer=].
* SequenceBreaking: Kung-Fu Jesus beats every enemy in nearly every level. He doesn't necessarily do them in the order the game intends, though.
* ShoutOut: Many as usual, ranging from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' to ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' to ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' to Music/JohnnyCash to much, much more.
* SlutShaming:
-->'''medibot (about [[HornyDevils Shannon]])''': You whore!
* SpaceWhaleAesop: "Moral of the story is: [[ItMakesSenseInContext don't dig wells, or you're a terrorist.]]"
* SpecialGuest: Changes each video, but often has Posse members.
* StealthPun: Boxes are made from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauxite bauxite]], according to medibot.
* TakeThat: As with ShoutOut moments, obscure ones again.
* ThousandYearReign: A variant. The [=LPers=] realize that the average "mystic cult" is generally either one hundred years old or one thousand years old, never a specific number, but always a long time.
* TotallyRadical: [[invoked]]pokecapn's imitation of Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog.
* TheUnpronouncable: [=IlluminatusVespucci=] accepted this (though they got better by the LetsPlay of LetsPlay/SonicTheHedgehog2006), and so the others call him "illves".
* TheWatson: Many of the {{Special Guest}}s have never played God Hand, and so have to have the game explained to them as it is going on.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Kaz describes "a God Hand game" like a TabletopGame.
* WorstWhateverEver: Or rather, "stupidest meeting room ever," Kung-Fu Jesus' reaction to [[FiveBadBand the Four Devas']] [[NoOSHACompliance meeting room]].
* ZenSurvivor: By after the fifth challenge video, Kung-Fu Jesus has entered the "own zone", where he has transcended the need for health, instead just trading it in order to sustain his glory.

[[folder:Final Fantasy XIII-2]]
* AdamSmithHatesYourGuts: The Posse wonders how Chocolina, an atemporal being, is able to use money in any one time period. They come to the conclusion that she takes your money, then goes to a time period where it's worth more and buys more stuff to sell to you, making an insane profit. One of them wonders if she could be the BigBad, but this is denied by Kung-Fu Jesus as too smart for the game.
* AerithAndBob: {{Discussed|Trope}}.
-->'''KFJ''': So Serah got a normal name, and Lightning is named ''Lightning''. What's the deal with that?
* AlcoholHic: Hits KFJ pretty hard in Part 37. HilarityEnsues.
* AlienGeometries: In [[UnexpectedGameplayChange Part 55]], "cube-orbs", as medibot calls them.
* AltumVidetur:
-->'''medibot''': "Nova Crystarium Crystallis". [[SmartPeopleKnowLatin I know Latin.]]\\
'''Kaz''': Yeah, I know Latin, too. Erm... [[CanisLatinicus Semper fidelis tyrannosaurus.]]\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Roughly translated, "[[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Always faithful terrible lizard.]]"
* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Preemptive in Part 50.
-->'''[[TheMole Alyssa]]''': I'm sorry. But in the future you hope to build, [[RetGone I no longer exist.]]\\
'''[[DeadpanSnarker Kung-Fu Jesus]]''': [[DullSurprise Yaaaaay.....]]
** Again in Part 56.
-->'''pokecapn''': It [the [[SoundtrackDissonance the theme song]]] really accurately describes the fact that the character you've been playing as for the last fifty hours [[TheHeroDies just died]].\\
'''Kaz''': I ''like'' that.
* ArtificialStupidity: Much fun is poked at how residents of Academia 4XX cannot seem to be able to stand up on their moving walkways.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Discussed.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': This isn't space. This is a ''temporal'' rift. This is time.\\
'''pokecapn''': This is right. This is the time stream.\\
'''Kaz''': Yeah. It's because there's no relationship ''between'' time and space.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Not here.
* ArtisticLicenseReligion: Parodied. Downloading is a sin, as stated on [[Literature/TheBible the third day]] in the cities of "Kazah and Gommorah".
* AssShove: How it's explained Serah stores the Artefacts, and where Hope stores his BattleBoomerang.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Kung-Fu Jesus, exploring A Dying World 700AF, in Part 53.
* AudienceSurrogate: Noel once in Part 51.
-->'''pokecapn''': Noel just spoke for us, by the way. He said [[KudzuPlot "I don't know what you're talking about."]]
* AudienceParticipation: Although Kung-Fu Jesus does admit that he puts up his videos a few days after he makes them, he and The Posse do read the commentary in their [=YouTube=] videos and this very page, though they [[DeadpanSnarker aren't always the nicest about how they talk about it]].
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Discussed in Part 60. Kung-Fu Jesus is not sure whether or not Serah has... nether regions, due to her being a "Barbie doll", and they don't normally have them.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: As early as Part 5, Kaz wanted to see a battle where wounding was a necessary mechanic. In Part 67... he got what he wanted, and it was far more annoying than he thought it would be.
* BeatingADeadPlayer: In Part 58.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Spiking Mog is sort of like teabagging, between your legs, behind you.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Not when it comes to [[PintSizedPowerhouse Scrunchy]], according to Kaz, in an inversion. He's called flat out ugly in Part 55, but is very much good.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Serah (or maybe Kung-Fu Jesus) was always a fairy princess. It is only by Part 55 that he/she found out, though, as medibot says.
* BestialityIsDepraved: In Part 52.
-->'''Kaz''': This has all of the idiocy of a mythical fantasy story, but none of the like sex with cows.\\
'''medibot''': [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Ze]][[TopGod us]] will [[AnythingThatMoves bang anything at any time.]] That's just how Zeus rolls.
* BigNo: In Part 51, on finding the right silhouette in the darkness of a Dying World 700 AF, [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential thereby being unable to kill more people in the world by making them exist]]. This is followed by a BigYes when the cutscene that ensues ends.
** Kung-Fu Jesus lets out another one in Part 66, when jumping off a platforming puzzle into an abyss in slow motion.
* BigShutUp: Kung-Fu Jesus, combined with PunctuatedForEmphasis during Part 53 while he is ChewingTheScenery.
* BlessedWithSuck: Apparently Waldo of "Where's Waldo", according to Kaz in Part 53. Even on his deathbed, he'd get terrible treatment because none of the doctors would be able to find him.
* BodyHorror: medibot's preference as of Part 42 and Part 55:
-->'''medibot in Part 42''': [[DemBones I really want my skeleton to be on the outside right now.]]\\
'''medibot in Part 55''': [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} I got tentacles coming out of my face.]]
** Actual BodyHorror comes up with a live trigger ripple on Lightning's face in Part 50 that is, according to Kaz, "a little disconcerting".
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: In Part 55, to Caius' first OneWingedAngel, Chaos Behemoth.
-->'''Kaz''': Also I'm a huge demon, by the way.
* BrickJoke: The "need to wound" battle. From Part 5 (the setup) to Part 67 (the payoff).
* BriefAccentImitation: At one point, to parody Kaz NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent when reading a long passage in French, Kung-Fu Jesus makes a brief imitation of a French accent himself.
** In Part 50, Kung-Fu Jesus makes an accent impression making fun of Vanille and Fang's LandDownUnder accent.
-->'''KFJ''': What the 'ell?! [[ItMakesSenseInContext Ma textures ah glitchin' aut!]]
* BrotherSisterIncest: Or rather Sibling Incest. In Part 42, while [[RunningGag looking over Serah's character model again]] during a cutscene using the "Eyes of the Goddess" skill, Kung-Fu Jesus says that the skill is probably [[PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo Lightning]] being in control of it, despite the fact that Lightning is Serah's older sister.
* ButThouMust: Deliberately named in Part 56 by Kung-Fu Jesus, in response to the fact that whether or not you decide to break Noel's ThouShaltNotKill in the finale, Caius dies either way by his sword.
* CallBack: Various, as per usual with Posse work.
** Kung-Fu Jesus starts off the LP [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmrRZpEw-10&feature=g-vrec by singing "Kiss From a Rose" while the game is installing]], calling back to a request made during the "[[LetsPlay/{{pokecapn}} Stupid Games Done For Money]]" stream for The Posse to sing it while Kaz fights Ridley in Super Metroid, which they forgot to do.
*** Kaz states one of the "Horse E-Books" Tweets in Part 46.
*** And in Part 56 a quick aside of "[[CoolHorse Odin]] E-Books" was made.
** Kung-Fu Jesus [[LetsPlay/SonicTheHedgehog2006 states a line of "Rocket Man" in complete deadpan]] in one of the videos while mocking the idea of "many Yuels" or "many Caiuses".
*** To add on that, in Part 44, medibot notes that pokecapn, while doing one of the [[ScrappyMechanic clock puzzles]], has only had a frown that hard on his face one other time if his life, and [[TheScottishTrope they don't talk about that time]].
** As in pokecapn's ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' marathon LetsPlay, medibot still says he is a botanist.
*** pokecapn notes that the last time Kaz hit medibot, things "went south for an hour and a half", referencing the game of ''Mario Party 5'' they did.
*** When pokecapn correctly states the definition of an interdiction, medibot awards [[Franchise/HarryPotter fifty points to House]] [[VideoGame/MarioParty Wario]].
** Kung-Fu Jesus still wants to [[VideoGame/GodHand bet on Lucky Clover]] at the Chocobo races, even though there isn't one.
** Also an internal CallBack: Twice in the LP, the Kung-Fu Jesus says that the OminousLatinChanting in Caius' {{leitmotif}} really speak to his character if translated.
** In Part 5, KFJ frustrates everyone else in the room a great deal by having trouble understanding a puzzle which is obvious to them. pokecapn says "Look, the bright pink wall is right there. Why can't you just break through it and pull the switch?", referencing the time The Posse collectively FailedASpotCheck for ten minutes in [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Eggmanland]], much to the frustration of anyone watching.
** In Part 40, medibot refers to a Thermadon as a "Thrill-lizard", his nickname for the lizard enemies from ''Sonic 2006'' (because they appear to be doing the ''Music/{{Thriller}}'' dance when Silver picks them up with telekinesis).
* {{Calvinball}}: Subverted, they first assume Chronobind works this way before actually checking the rules in the game and looking them up online.
-->'''medibot''': "Clocked out on a triple bind", okay, so this game has ''rules.''
* CatchPhrase: Generally when someone or something falls into an abyss, though it stops once Dreamsower and Mio Bison stop appearing.
-->'''Dreamsower''': Embrace the void!
-->'''Kaz''': ''[[LargeHam Suck it down!]]''
* ChainedByFashion: Discussed in Part 62, with Kaz wondering where the chains on the Long Gui came from, and wonders if he just ''grew'' them.
* ChewingTheScenery: [[LargeHam Kaz]], when describing the "Advanced Moogle Hunt" in Part 52. He doesn't stop for quite some time. [[CreepyMonotone Kung-Fu Jesus]], of all people, does this as well in Part 53.
* CombatCommentator: Or rather Puzzle Commentator. Kaz takes up the position of narrating pokecapn's attempts to solve the paradox puzzles as if he were at the US Open (either golf or tennis) as of Part 42.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: The punishment for losing too many races in Chocobo racing is to have to do more paradox puzzles, according to the end of Part 43.
* CoolShades:
** [[StoneWall Ironsides the Silver Chocobo]] and [[AttackAttackAttack Scrunchy the Chichu]]. In Part 35, The Posse lampshades their...[[{{Pun}} shades]].
** Mog gets them once they download his outfits, wearing the Fashionista outfit, until they change him to the Chocolate one.
* TheCorrupter: medibot is pleased when his idea of the [[GroinAttack Scroton]] [[InvertedTrope Cannon]] gets pokecapn to repeat this idea over and over, laughing.
-->'''Kaz''': He's going to be saying that for a while. I hope you're happy with yourself, medibot.\\
'''medibot''': I am in fact ''extremely'' satisfied, knowing that I have negatively affected the youth of tomorrow. And today.
* CrapsaccharineWorld: Academia 4XX according to The Posse. There is no way that much random screaming and falling over would mean this time is paradise.
* TheDitz: The Posse is intentionally trying to play [[ActionGirl Serah]] this way in live triggers.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Okay, so the new plan is to just make her the dumbest person on the planet. Whatever planet we happen to be on at the time.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Kung-Fu Jesus explicitly calls some of the items for Chocobo racing in Part 43 performance-enhancing drugs. He also calls chaos "Etro's abusive husband" in Part 52.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Well, more the Gank side, but [[CreepyMonotone Kung-Fu Jesus]] gets [[HotBlooded noticeably hammy]] when he gets into it with Gank, as noted [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_iwVW_AMUY&t=16m24s here]]:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Sorry, Gank just gets my blood going.
* DyingRace: One of the theories proposed by The Posse about Moblins in Part 48. They keep looking for them, but maybe they're so hard to find because they're killing them all off, and [[ApocalypseHow killing off the reproducing members of the species.]]
* EasyAmnesia: In Part 42, medibot forgets how to do the "Swedish chef with peanut butter in his mouth" voice immediately after stopping using it due to it being so horrible for the rest of The Posse to listen to, resulting in him never being able to use it again.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: According to Kung-Fu Jesus in Part 60, it will [[FelonyMisdemeanor include a February 30th]], and then we'll be screwed.
* EmotionEater: According to Kung-Fu Jesus in Part 55, Scrunchy can eat bravery and faith. [[note]]That is, there are buffs in the game called "Bravery" (attack boost) and "Faith" (magic boost), and Scrunchy has abilities that let him steal those buffs from enemies when he attacks them.[[/note]]
* EnsembleDarkHorse: [[invoked]][[RecurringBoss Gog]][[EldritchAbomination magog]]. The Posse actually wants for him to be [[TheManBehindTheMan The Monster Behind The Caius]] in the end.
* EpisodeZeroTheBeginning: In Part 50.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': You don't hear about [[NoodleIncident that]]. That's in Final Fantasy XIII-0. The prequel.
* EtTuBrute: PlayedForLaughs in Part 50.
-->'''Yuel of the Distant Past''': [[TheMole Your betrayer]] is one known to you.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Noel, you fucker!]]
* EpicFail: Kaz calls Ironsides the Silver Chocobo a "shiny brown", despite not being even close to brown. He at least admits it immediately.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Kung-Fu Jesus closed his thread for this game when someone brought up DomesticAbuse, citing that "that's not right".
* EvilIsCool: [[invoked]]InUniverse. The Posse really likes Caius, thinking he's their favorite character in the game, and that there's a lot to like about him that isn't outright stated.
* EvilLaugh: Kung-Fu Jesus lets one out in Part 54 in response to the paradox puzzle they have to do.
* {{Expy}}: Sort of. The entire idea of "taking power from yourself in alternate times" reminds The Posse of ''Film/TheOne''.
** More straightforwardly, Kung-Fu Jesus notes that he thinks Gadot of NORA is very similar to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Groose]], and wonders if there's a trope for that.
** In Part 54, Omega is called a [[Series/BattlestarGalactica1978 Cylon]]. Kaz is comfortable with this.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: almost directly name-checked by pokecapn in Part 64.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[{{Anticlimax}} I thought he'd be harder.]]\\
'''pokecapn''': And I thought ''you'd'' be taller.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Touché.
* FailedASpotCheck: Intentionally invoked during the "booby-trapped artefact" sequence with Serah every time they go through it, "trying to find" Yuel while jumping over her to find everything else.
** Likely invoked a ''bit'' less intentionally a couple more times. For one, they collect the Chaos Crystal, turn it in, and go as far as buying Serah's ultimate weapon...and then proceed to forget to equip it for a fair chunk of episodes. (To be fair, though, this sounds like something that The Posse would do on purpose just because.)
** There is, however, no excuse for the episode where they are looking around Academia 4XX AF for Captain Cryptic, a camouflaged quizmaster who must first be found using only the vaguest hints from the passive exposition of [=NPCs=]. He, like other interdimensional objects in the game, appears invisible mostly but flashes for a split-second because magic. It is so hard to see him, apparently, that '''he can actually be seen on-screen at one point''' without any of the group noticing. When this happens, you can practically hear the entire internet screaming "HE'S RIGHT THERE!!!". The group, completely unaware, actually do a full once-over of the area and go approximately '''twenty minutes''' before they find him.
* FantasticDrug: [[ItMakesSenseInContext "Choco-boco-hol"]] in Part 55. Also in the same part, "Fractal Pot". The latter, for which this quote below is said, is described as "looking at an infinitely recursive pattern", and as the only reason people study math. Later, upon finding "Moonblossom Seed", medibot states that the future has the best drugs.
-->'''medibot''': That is some primo shit.
* FantasticRacism: Kung-Fu Jesus sometimes calls [[TeamPet Mog]] "Moog", which he decides is a racial slur for Moogles.
* {{Fashion Victim| Villain}} {{Mook|s}}: The Posse sentences the Gancanagh Ace in Part 35 to death for wearing either a Film/{{Tron}} cosplay, [[FelonyMisdemeanor wearing purple after Labor Day]], or just plain looking bad. In any case, it's no excuse.[[invoked]]
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Etiquette has been breached. I will murder his ''shit''.
* FinaglesLaw: In reaction to the destruction of the dream version of New Bodhum to chaos, Kaz yells this at Serah in Part 50.
-->'''Kaz''': Stop observing things! You'll change them by doing that! It's Heisenberg!\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': The Heisenberg New Bodhum Uncertainty Principle.
* FlatWhat: Dreamsower's response to TheReveal of Chocolina's identity.
-->'''Chocolina''': I couldn't do anything as [[spoiler: a tiny little Chocobo]]. I was so helpless.\\
'''Dreamsower''': What.
* ForTheEvulz: PlayedForLaughs in why medibot continues to watch the game as of Part 44.
-->'''medibot''': It makes me smile because people are suffering.
* FunnyAfro: Taken UpToEleven when [[DownloadableContent the recruited]] [[AfroAsskicker Sazh]] gets an accessory called "Afro and Silver Chick", giving his afro a second afro akin to a pyramid.
* GoshDangItToHeck[=/=]HoldYourHippogriffs: The Posse elects in Part 44 not to swear, so they try to do so creatively.
** Also in Part 54.
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[WhatAnIdiot I am a poopy.]]
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Swedish in Part 47.
* GratuitousFrench: Kaz reads an instruction manual in accentless French for basically no reason in Part 32.
* GratuitousGerman: pokecapn once [[FunnyMoments belches in the middle of telling The Posse to shut up]] in Part 44, to which Kung-Fu Jesus says that he's letting too much German into his language. Or some other space-based foreign language.
* GuideDangIt: {{Discussed}} in Part 53.
-->'''Kung-Fi Jesus''': How would you do [[HundredPercentCompletion this]] without a FAQ?\\
'''pokecapn''': You would bash your head against it, for hours upon hours.
** Also noted in Part 62.
--->'''medibot''': As in reading the game guide to accomplish anything in this piece of shit.
* HehHehYouSaidX: New Bodhum ([[ToiletHumor Bottom]]) gets this treatment repeatedly.
* HesBack: [[EnsembleDarkHorse Gogmagog]] in Part 52 for the first time since his two defeats in Neo Bodhum (excluding Aldolei), now with ''two'' heads. [[{{Squee}} The Posse is very happy]].
-->'''pokecapn (in a very deep voice)''': Remember me?
* HomoeroticSubtext:
** Medibot thought that having a lisp was just him "being into dudes". Or being UsefulNotes/{{British|Accents}}. Whichever works.
** Then, in Part 36:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Hey, guys. What we're going to do is... ''fuck''.\\
'''Kaz''': No, we're not going to do that, but [[PerverseSexualLust I can understand why you're in that mood.]]
** Again in Part 42, while talking about going out to get a Vanilla Coke:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': I would rather have a vanilla cock.\\
'''medibot''': You and me both, buddy!
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Noted by medibot in Part 57 when tasked to kill a monster if seen.
-->'''medibot''': Don't try to [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath talk to the monster]] and try to establish a diplomatic dialogue or something, just murder it. Who's the ''real'' monster here?
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: In Part 45, The Posse comes to the conclusion that the reason Noel is the only person left in his time period is because he killed everyone else, forcing himself to become a monster hunter instead.
* IAmSpartacus: In reaction to misattributed quotes on this very page, The Posse says that "all are Kaz" in Part 68.
* ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin: medibot gets a "mellow high" from ''thinking'' about [[FantasticDrug Fractal Pot]] in Part 55.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: The entire Posse decides to drink (and them pouring the drink is clearly audible) by Part 55. The game seems much better as a result for a little while.
* ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder: medibot reminds us that he is a botanist, not an ornithologist.
* ImAHumanitarian: In Part 58, about Mog's plan in the Flan based paradox ending.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Because they're all cannibals, you see.
** Also in Part 62.
--->'''pokecapn''': [[PintSizedPowerhouse Scrunchy]] ''feeds'' on his inferior brethren.
** Part 66 mixes this with CannibalismSuperpower.
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': You heard it here, folks. medibot is the only botanist in the entire world, and he's really good at it.\\
'''Kaz''': He systematically devoured all other botanists, adding their power to his own.
* InWhichATropeIsDescribed: His naming convention for the videos, though this changes in Part 30 (the end of Act 1 of the game), "I'm Sorry [[BadassTeacher Miss]] [[ActionGirl Farron]]".
* InsistentTerminology: Kung-Fu Jesus consistently tries to call Serah a "female" and not a "woman" or "girl" because she is a fictional character.
* InterfaceScrew: All of the Paradox Endings are split between two screens that are flipped, and the FinalBoss is split between ''four'' in order to get past Creator/SquareEnix.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: At one point, pokecapn pronounces "aspartame" as "a-spar-ta-me" and is briefly ridiculed for it by medibot.
* {{Jerkass}}: The Posse tries to play Noel this way in live triggers.
* JesusWasWayCool: Or rather, CrystalDragonJesus Was Way Cool, as noted in Part 50.
-->'''pokecapn''': Wow, Etro is pretty chill.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Yeah, [[TimeTravel have these awesome powers]] and do whatever.
* JustForPun:
--> '''Kaz''': The only way to optimize out the colon is to make it a semicolon.
** Also in Part 52.
--->'''Kaz''': It's a [[LetsYouAndHimFight Hope against Hope.]]\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': It's meant to convey a sense of Hopelessness.
* LIsForDyslexia: How Kung-Fu Jesus reads the words of Noel's villagers in Part 53.
* LamePunReaction:
** Various ones involving Yuel.
** Also the following in Part 38:
--> '''medibot:''' And that's why it's no fun to play hide-and-seek with [[VideoGame/MegaManX Vile]].\\
'''pokecapn:''' What?\\
'''medibot:''' Vile ''Peaks''!\\
'''pokecapn:''' [[SarcasmFailure Oh... my god.]]
* LargeHam: [[CreepyMonotone Kung-Fu Jesus]] becomes increasingly hammy as the game goes on.
* LastLousyPoint: KFJ farms Moblins for Power Crystals, and he does get them frequently, until he only needs one more, at which point Moblins start spawning very rarely, and refuse to drop Power Crystals when they do. To rub it in, the game keeps giving him incredibly rare drops, but not the much more common Power Crystals.
* LastSecondWordSwap: In Part 52, "dick-tion" from medibot. Several times.
* LiteralMetaphor: medibot about a mission to find missing Chocobo chicks in Sazh's DLC.
-->'''medibot''': This is literally a wild goose chase.
** Again in Part 51.
--->'''Kaz''': It's a ''Dying'' World. You go there to die.
* LiteraryAllusionTitle:
** Of a sort. Part 32 is called "[[Literature/AtlasShrugged Atlas]] [[JustForPun Hugs]]".
** Also, a film allusion title. Part 43 is called "Film/ADayAtTheRaces".
** This time, as a video game allusion title, Part 54 is "[[VideoGame/DirgeOfCerberus Dirge of]] {{C|rowdSong}}hocobo".
* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: In Part 46, The Posse notes that the game is loading a loading screen.
* LoveTriangle: In the end of the Snow arc in the main plot, The Posse notes that this is "the most awkward [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative 'Noel stealing Serah from Snow]]' story they have ever seen."
* LukeIAmYourFather: in later videos, Kung-Fu Jesus tells medibot he is his ''mother'', especially in Part 60.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Kung-Fu Jesus' reaction to Noel's OurHeroIsDead is "ow".
* MaleGaze: Kung-Fu Jesus has a tendency to focus the camera on Serah's chest or hindquarters specifically for this reason.
* MarathonBoss: Royal Ripeness took them about a full half-hour video to defeat. [[DownloadableContent Caius' two-part battle in Lightning's DLC]] takes even longer in Parts 67 ''and'' 68, and presumably 69 as well.
* MeaningfulEcho: The name for Part 9 is [[ThatOneBoss "In Which Caius Lays a Beating"]]. The name for Part 57 is [[CurbStompBattle "Caius Takes a Beating"]].
* MeaningfulName: Hope, later in the game in Part 52.
-->'''Serah''': I found it, Lightning. [[HopeSpringsEternal Hope, in the midst of despair.]]\\
'''[[CloudCuckoolander medibot]]''': Why did you need to find [[TheSmartGuy Hope]]? You know where Hope is.
* MemeticBadass: The Posse, especially LetsPlay/KungFuJesus, can't seem to get enough of [[KillerRobot Gank]] until he becomes SoLastSeason.[[invoked]]
* MesACrowd: PlayedForLaughs with the "many Caiuses".
* MinMaxing: Played ''hard'' in many of the videos after the SpringtimeForHitler situation, with [[TheSmartGuy pokecapn]] guiding Kung-Fu Jesus to how to make [[GuysSmashGirlsShoot Noel, Serah]], and the {{Mons}} as overpowered as they can be to make the later parts of the game easier.
-->'''[[LockedOutOfTheLoop medibot]]''': I don't like the amount of thinking going into this.
* MindOverMatter: How The Posse proposes that Noel, Mog, and Serah are able to open chests by simply pointing at them.
* MostAnnoyingSound: InUniverse, several are this for The Posse throughout the LetsPlay, both by The Posse themselves and by the game. An example that's referenced multiple times is the "Crazy Chocobo" song for the Rambunctious Chocobo.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: In Part 67.
-->'''Dreamsower''': There has been more gravity in this discussion about almonds than there has been in this whole game.\\
'''pokecapn''': That's... actually probably accurate.
* MustHaveCaffeine: Kaz, apparently. Subdued, though.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: In Part 40.
-->'''pokecapn''': Wouldn't you like to wear clothes?
** Also less funny in Part 52, and more... [[{{Fanservice}} well...]]
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Whoa!\\
'''pokecapn''': Clothes be gone.
* {{Narm}}: [[invoked]] [[InvokedTrope Kaz calls]] the introduction for [[DownloadableContent Perpetual Battlefield]] "all extremely silly" in Part 54.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In Part 51, Kung-Fu Jesus uses the "Mog search" and ends up summoning two people who die instantly.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': No! I killed them!\\
'''pokecapn''': Wow, good job! [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Now do that to everyone else in here.]]
* NightmareFetishist: Serah and a mirror in Part 50.
-->'''pokecapn''': Maybe she loves being terrified.
* NintendoHard: The Posse's opinion on some of the paradox puzzles.
-->'''medibot''': You know it's a hard puzzle when there's [[UnwinnableByDesign less than one way to solve them.]]
* NoNonsenseNemesis: The Posse is pleased that Caius acts this way. He says you are a contradiction in the timeline and he has to kill you. Short, sweet, and to the point.
* NoPronunciationGuide: Kung-Fu Jesus, about pronouncing an enemy type in Part 58.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': ...if you can pronounce that, you are Japanese.
* NoYou:
** Inverted in Part 42.
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': You may be right about that, in a technical sense.\\
'''pokecapn''': ''I'm'' a technical sense.
** Soon after played straight:
--->'''pokecapn''': The only biological puzzle I know is your life.
* NotBad: The Posse's reaction to [[IncrediblyLamePun Brant's]] [[JustForPun later]] [[SelfDeprecation jokes]] in Bresha Ruins 300AF, specifically this one:
-->'''Brant''': [[WorthyOpponent You have my respect.]] [[SelfDeprecation Now give it back!]]
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Kaz reads an instruction manual in French, but without using any kind of accent. It's hard enough for him reading it at all.
* NotSoDifferent: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcEo-HP5KDw&feature=channel&t=11m47s According to The Posse]], the duos of Serah and Noel versus Yuel and Caius. They even call the latter just another simultaneous Final Fantasy game.
-->'''Mio Bison''': Why would you trust her? She hangs out with a [[BigBad total asshole]]!
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Well, why trust [[PlayerCharacter Serah]] [[{{Jerkass}} for the same reason]]?
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou:
** The Posse is a little annoyed by this in the final cutscenes in Part 56, but equate it to [[GiantRobotHandsSaveLives being caught by a giant robot hand]].
** This is also mentioned in Part 66, equating landing on [[CoolHorse Odin]] to the same thing.
* NotWhatItLooksLike:
** In Part 54.
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Is that a dildo? Oh, no, it's just a controller.
** Also in Part 66, when Noel is holding Serah's corpse, and Hope comes over.
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': ...I didn't do it.
* ObviouslyEvil: In Part 64, medibot approves of the fact that [[OurMonstersAreWeird Ras]][[MultiArmedAndDangerous pa]][[PurpleIsPowerful til]] "definitely looks like an enemy".
* OhCrap: The Posse's reaction to finding [[ImplacableMan a Tonberry]].
** Also to seeing Vanille and a paradox gate in Part 50.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent "from zombies you encounter in your day-to-day life."
* PantyShot: Many courtesy of Kung-Fu Jesus' MaleGaze, but this line in Part 51 sticks out.
-->'''pokecapn''': This FAQ specifically says that during this time the camera offers excellent chances for up skirt shots.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': ''*tries, but only sees darkness*'' A dark void awaits us. An expertly ''painted'' dark void.
* PerfectlyCromulentWord: In Part 52, "menuchka" for paradox gate.
* PerverseSexualLust: Kung-Fu Jesus takes any opportunity to try to peek perverted looks at Serah. ''[[CloudCuckoolander medibot]]'' of all people is the OnlySaneMan in this equation.
** pokecapn in general. His sole research for the role of commentator was downloading 3 gigs of final fantasy porn before showing up for the first session.
--> '''pokecapn''': "So, Kung-Fu Jesus, [[{{Rule34}} what's your final fantasy]]?"
** And then there's the reaction to Serah's stats going up to 69 for strength and magic power each when they get the Odinbolt.
** In Part 51, there's also the fact that [[DyingRace with only two humans left in a Dying World 700 AF]], Kung-Fu Jesus still wants to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything see what they'll do now that they are]]. Also, this line from Kung-Fu Jesus:
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': The camera is going to let us be perverts. It's also going to let us be [[WhatAnIdiot total fucking morons.]]
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Scrunchy the Chichu, which is known as the "death-ticle" or testicle by The Posse, is almost as strong as [[MemeticBadass Gank]] in about half the levels (being able to level far more), and about a fifth of the size. By Part 47, at near his full level, he has far higher strength than Gank.
* {{Pirate}}: In Part 55, The Posse changes Mog's outfit from Chocolate to one akin to one of these. They decide it is the "tasteful" choice.
* PowerAtAPrice: In Part 66, Kung-Fu Jesus calls the ability to speed up the game "power at a cost", since, while they enjoy the new speed (and the speed of it does give more gravitas to the finale), it makes performing [[LimitBreak Feral Links]] impossible due to an inability to time them correctly.
* PowerGlows: The Anti-Gravity Jump as of Part 54.
-->'''medibot''': Suddenly this game is interesting again, and I don't know why... wait, [[RuleOfCool there it is.]]
* {{Profiling}}: In Part 40, non-criminal and non-racial version in the case of pokecapn determining that this LP is statistically more mature than his own based on general demographics. More a statement of what he views as fact than a bad thing, though.
-->'''medibot''': It certainly [[HypocriticalHumor smells more mature]].
* ProtagonistJourneyToVillain: The Posse notes in Part 56 that this would make the entire game better for them, if Caius turned out to be just [[FutureMeScaresMe a future Noel]] after Serah died.
* RatedMForManly: In Part 45, the LP is described as "Rated M for Medibot".
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: In Part 51, in A Dying World 700 AF.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': They're all 700 years old! I would die too!
* RealitySubtext: To one of the later fragments of a future Noel telling the past Noel to be careful, and Serah telling him to stop trying so hard to justify it. pokecapn reads it as Creator/SquareEnix talking to the audience.
-->'''pokecapn''': You're thinking too hard, player! Just accept what we tell you at face value!
* RedSkyTakeWarning: medibot approves of the one in the dream version of a Dying World 700 AF, as noted in Part 60.
-->'''medibot''': I want all humans to live in fear under this sky.
* RoboticReveal: PlayedForLaughs in Part 58.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': The Moogle was a robot all along! IKnewIt!
* RunningGag: "Many Caiuses" and Kung-Fu Jesus always trying to move the camera for MaleGaze attempts.
** KFJ saying "artefact" in a [[TalkLikeAPirate pirate accent]].
* SarcasmFailure: By Part 40, they have [[SanitySlippage degenerated mentally]] to simply comparing silly laughs.
-->'''Kung- Fu Jesus''': Our commentary has gotten pretty old. We have run out of things to say.\\
'''Kaz''': Things get pretty silly when you've got the [[INeedAFreakingDrink scotch shaken out of you.]]
* SayMyName: Parodied.
-->'''Serah''': Lightning.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Kaz.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: The Posse approves of [[BigBad Caius']] [[VillainousFashionSense scarf]] as said in Part 50, and wish his outfit was usable for their characters.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After dealing with the slots at Serendipity and the GoddamnBats in Academia 400AF, Kung-Fu Jesus gets fed up and just shuts off the game.
** He also quits on every one of the downloadable content bosses except for "Lightning and Amodar" and "Omega" in Part 62, both of which fights he had already beaten.
* SelfDeprecation: In Part 64, medibot calls his voice "some kind of twelve-year-old version of David Schwimmer."
* SelfInsert: In Part 64, the ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' novel is considered this by The Posse for Dante, mostly by Kung-Fu Jesus.
* {{Sentai}}: Of miniflans. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* SevenDeadlySins: medibot thinks this of the Chocobos in the "find the Chocobos" mission from Chocolina as Sazh. He believes each one represents a sin [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory as he would]]. This gets even funnier [[IKnewIt when later chocobos are literally named after sins]], like [[{{Lust}} Luxuria]], [[GreenEyedMonster Nied]], and {{Greed}}.
** CuteIsEvil: As a result.
* SexBot: A note in Part 58, by [[PerverseSexualLust Kung-Fu Jesus]].
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': I wonder if Robo-Alyssa is programmed for pleasure.
* SexGod: Or rather goddess in the case of Etro according to Kung-Fu Jesus in Part 53.... [[PerverseSexualLust for some reason]].
* SidetrackedByTheGoldenSaucer: The Posse tends to spend a lot of time in between videos after starting the Sazh DLC playing [[BettingMinigame Chronoblind]].
* TheSilentBob: medibot, for the first few videos he's present.
* TheSmartGuy: pokecapn (who has apparently taken on the role of Website/GameFAQs checker) and Kaz, though more the former.
* SmiteMeOMightySmiter: In Part 50.
--> '''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[BigGood Lightning]], please strike me dead.
* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]]In reaction to the idea of "the planet of Music/RobZombie" comment in Part 44, pokecapn thinks this.
-->'''pokecapn''': That sounds so bad, and yet so amazing at the same time.\\
'''medibot''': It's like... it sounds bad, but you still want it to exist.
** To pass the time while KFJ farms enemies, pokecapn and Kaz read terrible ''FFXIII-2'' crossover fanfics, pronouncing every spelling mistake and grammatical error as they are written, and laughing at the sheer displays of stupidity and incompetence. Here are some highlights from a crossover with ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' that Kaz reads:
--->'''Kaz:''' "She was curiously looking at me in concern to know about what I might- what might be I answer? and that was really bothering me though." ({{Beat}}) Gah, it's some kind of... robot language.\\
'''Kaz:''' "I found out he was right, my ass was really burning." That's like the best sentence in this whole thing, "I found out he was right, my ass was really burning."\\
'''Kaz:''' "Thank God! I got relief from the fire when they after me with a water splash." (pokecapn and KFJ crack up laughing and make him read the sentence again)
*** WhamLine: pokecapn starts reading a fanfic where Lightning wakes up with a hangover and discovers [[YuriGenre she slept with some random blonde girl]]. When he reads the line "[[spoiler: My name is [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Noel Vermillion]].]]", KFJ cracks up laughing while Kaz audibly cringes.
---->'''KFJ:''' (recovering from laughter) [[DidntSeeThatComing I didn't see it coming]].
* SoLastSeason: [[TheMedic Buttercup]] the [[Webcomic/PennyArcade cat in the hat]], [[ElementalPowers Tim and Tango]] the imps, and even the MadeOfIron [[StoneWall Crushabolic]] and [[MemeticBadass Gank]] all suffer from this over the course of the game.
* SoOkayItsAverage: [[invoked]]LetsPlay/{{Medibot}}'s description of the game when he finally speaks, noting that the game is so average that it leaves him completely uncaring, owing to why he didn't speak previously.
-->'''medibot''': This is a game, that, despite the parts, comes together to elicit absolutely no response from me. I feel ''nothing'' about this game. I could not be ''more'' nonplussed. It's amazing! It's fascinating! Just how nonplussed I am.
** However, in Part 56, he admits that the game did eventually win in eliciting an emotional response from him.... [[UnstoppableRage hatred of all video games.]]
* SoundtrackDissonance: Both inverted and played straight after a fashion. Starting in Part 48, The Posse uses VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'s soundtrack instead of the game's.[[invoked]]
* SpecialEffectsFailure: According to Kung-Fu Jesus, the costume designer for [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Bresha Ruins 300AF]] does not know how snow works, but does know how cake frosting works, and lots of it.[[invoked]]
* SpeechImpediment: Apparently medibot has a lisp. It's not okay if you make fun of others with a lisp, but it is okay when you make fun of his lisp, or so he says.
* SpringtimeForHitler: Kung-Fu Jesus is, as of Part 33, actively attempting to alienate his viewers so he does not have to play the game anymore, due to disliking the game that much. He seems to grow out of it, however, as he does try MinMaxing in later videos.
* {{Squee}}: Kung-Fu Jesus has a tendency to do this about Gank, though this lessens in later episodes, especially as Scrunchy gets better than him.
** The entire Posse (particularly Kaz) reacts this way to the return of Gogmagog in episode 52.
* TheStoic: Kung-Fu Jesus admits he doesn't panic enough in Part 40, only pretending to panic instead.
** NotSoStoic: By contrast with [[TheStoic Kung-Fu Jesus]], medibot is stated by Kaz to have poor panic control, though good control with everything else he does.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Kaz predicted one of [[TheDitz Serah's]] lines an instant before she said it. The Posse offered their sympathies.
** Also played for laughs here:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[CreepyMonotone Kupo.]]
-->'''[[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mog]]''': [[VerbalTic Kupo!]]
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Indeed.
** Then there's Kaz referencing the "[[Manga/DragonBall Gokulian]] feat" of puzzle solving. It had to be a word, because most of The Posse immediately knew [[NintendoHard exactly what he meant.]]
--->'''Kaz''': Yes! There's at least two people who understand me.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: "Manuel Labor", the laborer. His parents didn't have high hopes for him.
* StuffBlowingUp: [[MadScientist Thurston]] in Bresha Ruins 300AF [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH_i7MvpTqQ&t=8m26s advocates]] for simply ''blowing up the ruins'' to stop the monsters. Though [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep the Commander]] found out that it might harm [[DysonSphere Cocoon]] in the explosion, The Posse is still impressed and thinks he has great ideas.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': This guy is ''[[CrazyAwesome awesome]]''!\\
'''pokecapn''': Yo, we need to re-invent nukes.\\
'''medibot''': We forgot how, we'll remember.
* StupidityIsTheOnlyOption: The Posse feels this way about the "correct" solutions to any one problem.
* SuddenlyShouting: Kung-Fu Jesus in Part 60.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': ''It's a pseudo-hobby!''
* TakeThatAudience: The last few minutes of the final video is KFJ insulting everyone who's watched the let's play from beginning to end for tolerating such a horrible game. In Part 68, The Posse reads this very page, and implicitly insults the editors who they believe misworded quotes or attributed them to the wrong people, as well as general wording of examples.
* TemporalParadox: By Part 52, The Posse believes that the game has ruined the term for them, rendering it meaningless.
* ThatCameOutWrong:
** In Part 42:
-->'''pokecapn''': It [a [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Forked_Cat Forked Cat]]] has an ability that we want to put into our testicle.\\
'''medibot''': There are not too many things that I ''want'' to put into my testicle.
** Again in Part 44:
-->'''pokecapn''': Now let's look at your enemies [meaning his [[{{Mons}} captured monsters]]].\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus, acting as ComicBook/LexLuthor''': Gentlemen, it's come to this. How do we destroy Franchise/{{Superman}}?
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: In Part 66, Kung-Fu Jesus mentions that [[BorrowedCatchphrase he is a botanist]]. [[PretenderDiss medibot is not amused]], but Kung-Fu Jesus asks this:
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': What, ThereCanBeOnlyOne botanist?
* TheyFightCrime: Inverted in Part 65, where medibot wants to have a game about "wizards who do crimes".
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: [[invoked]]The Posse wonders in Part 59 why they can't play the game about the time traveling, flying motorcycle, like is in the paradox ending for Academia 4XX.
* TimeTravelTenseTrouble: AF apparently means "After Future". The game takes place in a "post-future society".
** Also [[DefiedTrope defied]] when one of The Posse insists that, when talking about time travel, one should only ever use the present tense in order to avoid this trope.
* ToiletHumor: A lot of it. Of special note is [[HehHehYouSaidX "New Bodhum"]] and the "pee pillar" caused by time having drank a lot in a few hours (paradoxes).
** After some time absent, it comes up again in Part 60.
--->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Screw all of this.]] I have to work.\\
'''Kaz''': ...what work does he have to do? He went to the bathroom.
* TomatoSurprise: Parodied in Part 59.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': You're the paradox, Serah! Mog's the real deal.
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mog]] has taken to "laying down the smack" in paradox puzzles as of Part 41 according to The Posse, mostly because of the following line if you fail:
-->'''Mog''': [[ItsAWonderfulFailure Try something different]], [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper kupo!]]
* {{Understatement}}: medibot, about the ending in Part 56 when he was hoping for a real ApocalypseWow.
-->'''medibot''': ...well, that was unsatisfactory.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: In Part 55.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Platforming come out of nowhere. How rude.
-->'''medibot''': A slow challenge out of nowhere. Waiting-based gameplay.
* UnderdogsNeverLose: [[StoneWall Ironsides]] [[InvokedTrope gets the "Dark Horse" ability]] in the Chocobo races in Part 43. However, this is subverted in the Fal'Cie class races.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: In Part 57, The Posse discusses this when considering monsters in fantasy games. They're just assumed to exist, and any problems can be explained as them becoming more prevalent or dangerous somehow.
* VersusTitle: Part 67: [[BigGood Valkyrie]] vs. [[BigBad Bitch]].
* VillainHasAPoint: In Part 66, Mio Bison notes that Caius ''does'' know more about Yuel than Noel, who only saw one of their lives in its entirety, since Caius is immortal, and has seen countless others. Therefore, Noel doesn't really have any right to argue with him about how much he knows Yuel.
* ViralMarketing: Kaz apparently has a vaccine in limited supply, which is SeriousBusiness.
* TheWatson: After many parts away, Mio Bison and Dreamsower become this in Part 66. Most of The Posse is also this to Kung-Fu Jesus in general, seeing as only he actually played the entire first game.
* WeWait: In Part 55, during the extended puzzle sequence.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Now we wait forever, because this is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 Final Fantasy]], the game where nothing can happen in a timely fashion.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: [[invoked]][[InUniverse Kung-Fu Jesus]] asks The Posse in Part 59 if they got into the PCP [[OhNoNotAgain again]], or maybe the bath salts.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Dreamsower and Mio Bison seem to be completely absent from later videos, though this might just be because they didn't come over for the sessions, leaving only the core four Posse members.
** TheBusCameBack: Dreamsower and Mio Bison return in Part 66, the first part of Lightning's DLC, "Requiem of the Goddess", as well as the last time through the FinalBoss for the secret ending.
* WhatTheHellHero: The Posse calls Kung-Fu Jesus out on skipping an early cutscene because he got bored of it, when they are playing the game to play the ''whole'' game, not just look at what they find enjoyable.
** Again in Part 51, this time to Noel.
--->'''Kaz''': Oh, yeah, he [[HunterOfMonsters Noel]] [[ThanksForTheMammary cops a feel]] just as she's [[[MysteriousWaif Yuel]]] dying.\\
'''[[PerverseSexualLust Kung-Fu Jesus]]''': Well, she's not going to remember this, right?
** In Part 56, they call out the Academia military in 500 AF for flying in to fight Caius when they could have helped with the massive amount of platforming before.
* AWizardDidIt: Name-checked in Part 52.
-->'''Kaz''': So literally AWizardDidIt.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Seems that way.\\
'''Kaz''': [[BigGood Her]] answer is that Etro did fucking everything.\\
'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': ''Seems'' that way.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: In Part 63.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': Crossroads... that should be spelled with an X.
* YouDoNOTWantToKnow: In Part 61, Kung-Fu Jesus says this to a question about Typhon from pokecapn concerning which end is his mouth.
* YourMom: In Part 59.
-->'''Kung-Fu Jesus''': [[MisterSeahorse I am your mom.]] Your mom's name is Yuel.

[[folder:Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII]]
* ContinuityNod: Plenty to the previous game and The Posse's playthrough of it. Most notably, Kaz expresses his sheer delight when he discovers that the Datalog has returned.
** Their first encounter with the "Angel of Valhalla" (a silver chocobo) leads to Kaz referring to it as "Ironsides", the silver chocobo from the previous LP.
* FanNickname: [[invoked]]They refer to BigBad [[ObviouslyEvil Bhunivelze]] as "Galvanize", since they consider his real name to be [[TheUnpronounceable nigh-unpronounceable]].
** Also, they call Eradia "Erotica".
** After they [[NoPronunciationGuide disagree with the game's pronunciation of the word "Gysahl"]], they refer to the doctor of that name as [[UnfortunateNames "Dr. Jizzle"]] or sometimes merely "Dr. Jizz".
* LamePunReaction: Following a discussion about leather:
-->'''KFJ''': You know why they call it "pleather"? For her ''pleather''.
-->'''pokecapn''': ...Just...talk to [[FanNickname Dr. Jizz]].
* LiteralMinded: Kaz and KFJ both react to meeting an NPC named "Bandit Grunt" by grunting loudly and saying "Bandit!"
* MathematiciansAnswer: In Episode 10.
-->'''pokecapn:''' Wait, is she [Lumina] talking about Yuel or Serah?\\
'''medibot:''' Yes.
* OrphanedSeries: Confirmed by KFJ on one of his streams that it's cancelled, they just didn't care about the game enough to even force themselves through it like they did with XIII-2. New videos went up in April 2015, but they had already been recorded before the cancellation was announced.
