* Whenever a non-human character in ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' would kiss Mario, Chugga would shout "BESTIALITY! THIS IS NOT [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 SONIC NEXT-GEN]]!!"
* Pointing out every instance of "Nintendo logic" ever.
* Getting aggravated at his Pikmin frequently disobeying him.
* Before he became a partner he constantly mentions the time limit and how it hinders him.
* Building on the notion that the Mario games are based on ShigeruMiyamoto's real life, whenever something bizarre is seen, he speculates on how messed up Miyamoto's early life must have been.
* Calling the galaxies inside the Engine Room Dome [[CutAndPasteEnvironments unoriginal.]]
* Taunting the enemies in the day ending sequence if none of his Pikmin are left behind.
* His ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' LP has him making comments about how the Hungry Lumas have high/low metabolism depending on how many Star Bits they need to become obese.
* "Do you like the [[SceneryPorn art direction]] of [[{{Okami}} this game]]? Because I really like the art direction of this game."
** Given a CallBack in ''Super Paper Mario''. His hint about the (Japanese) art style of Chapter 6 is "I like the art direction of this place because the art direction is really nice, and whoever the art director was did a really nice job in the art direction, yea, it's Japanese."
** Similarly, he absolutely loves the soundtrack of ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}''.
** And ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn''.
* "Un-necessarily epic!"
* He sometimes will reference stuff from different games and would then add, "This is not (insert game title)."
* Yelling "THIS IS BURGER KING!!" Whenever the words "Have it your way" appear on screen.
* Giving voices to characters, usually giving them ridiculous accents that doesnt even fit the respective characters. He usually lampshades it when using a ridiculous accent.
* Getting the final blow on each boss in ''Majora's Mask'' on their toe. Subverted with Gyorg, who has no feet in the first place...and lampshaded, of course:
--> I'm gonna have a hard time cutting off this one's toe!
* Mikau getting concussions.
* The Hocotate Ship in ''{{Pikmin}} 2'' constantly interrupting Chuggaa.
* BOWSER'S ARMS!
** He was specially happy when Dimentio lampshaded this in the game
* While not as often as the others, he'll often mention "The train is late!" whenever a train is involved in some sort of situation.
* In the description of the first episode of his ''Pokemon'' [[LetsPlay LPs]], saying he acquires his "third-first", "fourth-first and fifth-first" Pokemon.
* In ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', he frequently points out how big the feet of the [=NPCs=] are.
** He even lampshades it in part 10: "Huge feet is a RUNNING GAG"
** He gave several [[CallBack callbacks]] to this gag in VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness LP.
* Also in ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', there's a counter for the number of times the [[ArtificialStupidity Dumb AI]] uses an ineffective normal, ground, or fighting move on the [[NoSell ghost type with Levitate]] Misdreavus. It finished the game at 31, plus a Confuse Ray when it was already confused.
* Another rather unfortunate running gag in ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' is him failing to catch the bosses' Shadow Pokemon.
* In ''all'' his Pokemon [=LPs=], you can practically guarantee that [[TemptingFate whenever Chugga dismisses a Pokemon or move as sub-par and not worth your time]], within a few minutes it will end up KO'ing one of his own Pokemon.
* [[OverlyLongGag Again]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', he frequently [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the various odd names of the trainers. It reached a peak in the 5th Bonus Episode where he ran into a [[GoldfishPoopGang Team Snagem]] member named ''[[UsefulNotes/JoeBiden Biden]]''.
