!!''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/downrightdpad The D-Pad Let's Play]]'' as a whole provides examples of:

* AffectionateParody: The start of several Let's Plays features an edited or remade intro from the game itself.
* LetsPlay: Currently totaling over 1500 hours across over ''4000 videos''.
* MultiPartEpisode: Every Let's Play is split into parts. Some have only a few, but as of December 7, 2015, ''Pokémon Insurgence'' broke the record for the most episodes in a single playthrough, pausing at 138.
** What makes this more impressive is that the previous record-holder, ''Pokémon [=FireRed=] Version'', was produced over the course of ''two and a half years'', with frequent breaks. When ''Insurgence'' went on hiatus (due to the game itself being unfinished), it had been running for 28 consecutive weeks.
** Since then, the record has been beaten once again by the ongoing ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' playthrough, which stands at over 150 episodes. Shortly after the record was broken, the previous 138-episode run was matched by the 2017 playthrough of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Pokémon Moon]]''.
* NewMeat: When possible, the hosts make sure a given game's [[LetsPlay Let's Player]] has never played it before. PlayedForLaughs in situations like ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos 5 Days a Stranger]]'' where John has trouble controlling it at all.
** This doesn't always work out, however. Ben and C/J have mostly stayed away from the controller for ''The Mega Let's Play'', deferring to Rick, John, Dustin, and Ian when possible.
* PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel: The end of most videos features reminders of the group's presence on various social networking sites.
* SoundToScreenAdaptation: From the [[Radio/TheDPad radio show]].

!!The individual Let's Plays provide examples of:
* BatFamilyCrossover: Three of the four ''Open Lounge'' presenters appear along with the original three ''D-Pad'' hosts for the first playthrough of ''5 Days a Stranger''
* BerserkButton: ''5 Days a Stranger'''s Walk command:
-->'''Rick:''' DON'T USE THE FEET! Don't use the [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]] FEET!
** Immediately lampshaded by John in the only area where you ''have'' to use the feet to leave.
* ButtMonkey: '''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2 Tails.]]'''
* CallBack: The second ''5 Days a Stranger'' LP is loaded with references to the original run. [[Quotes/ChzoMythos Some of them]] are even intentional.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: When John looks at the [=DeFoe=] Manor map to see what's there that he hadn't encountered before...
-->'''John:''' So, front yard, [[HiddenInPlainSight tomb]]... first floor, second floor... this little path right here?
* EpicFail: During ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4'', Rick repeatedly insists he tested his video recording software ahead of time. So naturally, when they try to record... [[CriticalFailure they find themselves trying to play at roughly]] ''[[CriticalFailure one frame per second]]''. [[ReplacementScrappy Bring on]] ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix''!
** And when the video was finally uploaded? [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown It plays exactly the way it was supposed to.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMu63hDItPY See for yourself.]]
* FunWithSubtitles: The ROM used for ''Super Metroid'' had ''mandatory'' subtitles... in [[GratuitousGerman German]] or [[GratuitousFrench French]]. The guys found a new favorite word in '''''FORSCHUNGSSTATION'''''.
* GuideDangIt: Rick had to stop a few times during ''Pokémon [=FireRed=] Version'' to check what wild Pokémon lived in certain areas. Turns out, more than a few times he was just wasting his time.
** ''The Legend of Zelda'' and ''The Adventure of Link'' both involved heavy doses of this, due to the scarcity of useful in-game clues.
* HilariousInHindsight: The 2012 Super Bowl [=LP=] predicted the AFC team would win 34-31. They would do just that... the next year.
* InterfaceScrew: The recording laptop cursor is stuck in the center of the screen for the duration of ''5 Days a Stranger'', and the game cursor tweaks out at random.
* MissingEpisode: Due to a recording quirk[[labelnote:*]]the emulator recorded only the button presses and not the video itself, resulting in enemy AI changing and irreparably damaging the replay[[/labelnote]], ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'''s playthrough could not be replicated and recorded.
** A handful of series were lost before they could begin in a hard drive failure, including ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStarUltra''. The team has since declared the game cursed.
** A space of about 20 minutes is missing between Parts 17 and 18 of ''The Adventure of Link'', which left John's sudden and total disappearance from the rest of the game unexplained.
* MoodWhiplash: The first four episodes of ''5 Days a Stranger'' feature the hosts joking around about the camp nature of the game. Until [[spoiler:Day Three]]. John starts taking it a bit more seriously after getting properly creeped out by an 8-bit game.
** An even faster example occurs ''in the middle of a sentence'' in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErjdpZ6bX2M&t=2m22s this video]].
-->'''John (reading [[spoiler:Matthew [=DeFoe=]'s diary]]):''' I found a new friend. He is behind the '''''[[OhCrap door in the kitchen and he doesn't have a name.]]'''''
* NotSoOmniscientAfterAll: ''Let's Predict Super Bowl XLVI!'' It helps that the show is recorded in Patriot Nation. [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong It didn't, however,]] [[TakeThatMe help them win the Super Bowl.]]
** ''Let's Predict Super Bowl XLVII!'' pitted the Baltimore Ravens against the San Francisco 49ers. Once again, [[NotSoOmniscientAfterAll Tecmo gets it wrong.]]
** Essentially, ''Let's Predict the Super Bowl'' has been wrong nearly every year, including taking four attempts to finally predict the outcome of a New England Patriots appearance correctly.
* RageQuit: ''Super Metroid''. Only an hour in, even. All because of the ScrappyMechanic below.
* SchmuckBait: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxU5i-axKd0 "Touch the fire!"]]
* ScrappyMechanic: '''Walljumping.''' An entire 15-minute episode has the whole party struggling and ultimately failing to use the move. The [=LP=] was cancelled shortly after for being too much of a pain in the ass to play. They have since learned that they were attempting a notably difficult SequenceBreak as opposed to playing normally.
** Walking downstairs in ''5 Days a Stranger''.
*** Both times they played. [[AesopAmnesia They seem to have forgotten]] between playthroughs that you can click outside of the frame to walk, which normally turns the stairs into a non-issue.
* SignificantReferenceDate: ''Sonic Week'' was made to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the [[SonicTheHedgehog first game's]] release.[[labelnote:note]]The series was originally hosted on the team's website. It was uploaded to [=YouTube=] later on.[[/labelnote]]
** Both ''5 Days a Stranger'' [=LPs=] began on July 28th.
** The ''Mega Let's Play'' announcement video was published on the 27th anniversary of the original ''[[VideoGame/MegaMan1 Mega Man]]'''s release.
*** Additionally, the series began on the 21st anniversary of ''[[VideoGame/MegaManX1 Mega Man X]]'''s release.
* SuperBowlSpecial: ''Let's Predict the Super Bowl'' is the longest-running series on the entire channel, putting out an annual ''[[VideoGame/TecmoBowl Tecmo Super Bowl]]''-based prediction starting with Super Bowl XLVI in 2012.
* TemptingFate: Rick says pretty early on in ''5 Days a Stranger'' that there is no point where the game doesn't in some way direct you to the solution. Cue twenty minutes trying to figure out that the game wouldn't let John continue because [[GuideDangIt he didn't read the newspaper]].
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: John and [=CJ=] both have trouble with their UsefulNotes/AustralianAccent.
