!!''[[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.
* FriendlyRivalry: [[TheHero Rick]] and [[TheRival CJ]] are both [[TrustMeImAnX self-proclaimed]] experts on the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'', ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'', and ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' series, but will argue over ''anything''. Let's Plays of any of these games crank it over to RivalsTeamUp.
* LetsPlay: Currently totaling over 80 hours across more than 270 videos.
* MultiPartEpisode: Every Let's Play is split into parts. Some have six or fewer, but the ''Pokémon'' Let's Play numbered '''''75''''' before its hiatus at the end of February 2013.
* 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.
* 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:
-->''For tropes from The Legendary Let's Play, click [[LetsPlay/TheDPadTheLegendaryLetsPlay here]].''

* BatFamilyCrossover: Three of the four ''Open Lounge'' presenters appear along with the original three ''D-Pad'' hosts for ''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.]]'''
* 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]] ''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]], ''KirbySuperStar'''s playthrough could not be replicated and recorded.
** 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.]]
* 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.
** Walking downstairs in ''5 Days a Stranger''.
* 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]]
** The ''5 Days a Stranger'' [=LP=] began on July 28th.
* SuperBowlSpecial: ''Let's Predict Super Bowl XLVI!'' and ''XLVII!''
* 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 AustralianAccent.
