Phelous has a lot of these:

* Characters getting killed are sometimes presented as Franchise/MortalKombat fatalities (complete with Sub-Zero appearing to chastise Phelous/punch Phelous in the face).
* The Imogen Heap song [[Series/TheOC "Hide and Seek" playing]] [[Series/SaturdayNightLive when a character gets shot.]] Taken to ridiculous extremes in the Funny Games video, when Phelous and some of his friends start walking into the room and shooting each other, and the song plays ''every time one of them gets shot.''
** And then one of them pulls out a shotgun and shoots it, and the song is played again, only with SEVERAL of them overlaid.
** And then in ''Anaconda 4'', when a villain is shot [[NoKillLikeOverkill roughly a billion times]] by someone dual-wielding pistols. [[OverlyLongGag Hide and Seek starts each time he gets shot. The scene runs for quite a long time.]] Instant hilarity.
** At the beginning of one of the Pulse reviews, he realizes that Mischa Barton is in the movie:
-->'''Phelous:''' I guess that means I'll be using that [song] a lot in this review! ({{Beat}}) Actually I won't be using it at all.
* Phelous dying at the end of his videos. He has since retired this joke, but it does make a comeback in ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee''.
* '''SUBTLE!!!!'''
* Playing ''The Syncopated Clock'' over especially tedious scenes
* The subtitling of particularly narmy lines.
* Cutting to [[MuppetCameo Statler and Waldorf]] mocking the movie.
** Similarly, a shot from ''TheGreatMuppetCaper'' with Sam the Eagle poking his head out of a doorway and saying "You are all ''weirdos!''".
* Phelous loves referencing ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'', ''Franchise/SilentHill'', and other horror video games:
** [[Franchise/ResidentEvil "I got a shotgun!"]] whenever a character brandishes a shotgun.
** Very often, when a character is revealed as a zombie/[[ZombieInfectee has been infected with the zombie plague]]/[[Film/CabinFever has some sort of flesh-eating disease]], he proclaims that they are/have been [[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica "INFECTED WITH THE T-VIRUS!!!"]] *ScareChord* Complete with flailing his arms.
** '''''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil What!?]]''''' What '''is''' this? No mention of '''blood'''? Hope this is not '''Chris's''' blood!
* Adding sitcom-style LaughTrack to particularly stupid moments and cartoony sound effects to scenes of violence.
* He's reviewed no less than ''eight'' "Pulse" movies. There are nineteen in total.
* Similar to ''Pulse'', he's reviewed seven films with ''Boogeyman'' in the title.
* The rape horn from ''The Other Troll 3'' whenever there is implied rape.
* Playing The Kool-Aid Man's "Oh Yeah!" whenever something bursts through a wall
* After ''Fear Dot Com'', referring to websites as [Name] dot com [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment dot com]]
* When a record player appears in a movie, Dead or Alive's "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" plays.
* Any time he has a case of fridge logic, he rationalizes it as "Reasons for actions are stupid!" or says "Logic equals no."
* Whenever there's a character named Doug, Phelous scoffs and follows that with a clip of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic giving him a DopeSlap in ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}''.
* Playing a clip of [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] saying "I don't want to go" whenever a character in the movie says something similar.
* Hah Hah! Stupid surprised (whatever)!
* Ever since his review of ''HouseOfTheDead - Funny Version," he dubs in Uwe Boll's ridiculous "[[TheReveal duh duh duh duuuhh!]]" every time there's a [[TheReveal shocking reveal]].
* Sometimes, if something really unpleasant happens plot-wise, he'll use a clip of Tina from ''SkinnedDeep'' yelling "WHYYYYYYYY?!", complete with a goofy polygon with the word "Why?" written on it. This one started with his review of ''The Deaths of Ian Stone''.
* Often when there is a RedShirt character that gets killed, Phelous would go, "And he/she dies."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAZZCnwpPzo The Lock You Inside Doors]]
* [[TakeThat Face it,]] [[WebVideo/TheIrateGamer breakfast is ruined!]]
* Whenever a team of people [[InformedAbility presented as experts]] ends up doing something stupid, Phelous often chimes in with a cheery [[SarcasmMode "THEY'RE THE BEST!"]]
* In ''WrongTurn2DeadEnd'', which takes place during the filming of a reality show, one main character eats another's granola bar to prove that he doesn't care about her. Phelous mourns the loss of the potential "Granola Bar Alliance" and cracks jokes about it for the rest of the film.
* '''FUNNY X!''' [[EarRape [insert loud rock music here] ]] during the FunnyGames review.
* In his late-2011 reviews, a green blob-like "Ghost Babby" appears hidden on the title card. (Except for the ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet2010'' review, where it's front and center.)
* [[Film/{{Birdemic}} "Thankkkssssssssss."]]
* THE NIGHTMARE HAS BECOME REALITY.
* Pretending to end the review early.
* "[[SarcasmMode Thank you for that]]", from ''Crocodile 2''.
