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 ''Film/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 ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead - Funny Version," he dubs in Uwe Boll's ridiculous "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 ''Film/SkinnedDeep'' yelling "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQAX8738Kcs 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 ''Film/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 ''Film/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. And [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] it.
* "[[SarcasmMode Thank you for that]]", from ''Crocodile 2''.
* From his ''Mortal Kombat Conquest'' reviews:
** Raiden, ''God of Useless!''
*** Although that one actually started all the way back in Mortal Komedy.
** ''Siro, the [Adjectivest] Mortal Kombat [Noun]!!!''
** The "sacred suggestions" of Mortal Kombat.
* "I know what I know, boy... but I'm not telling it!" Played whenever a character is witholding information for no apparent reason.
* As of the ''Film/SilentHillRevelation3D'' review, the infamous "poptart jumpscare" has become one.
* Throughout the ''Twilight'' board game video he keeps describing things as either "This is the face of a [Noun]" alternatively, "the [Noun] of a killer".
* Anyway, to make a long story short, X killed them.
* During incredibly [[IdiotPlot moronic]] scenes, he will sometimes take an inane line and use it as a reaction to every ridiculous event of the scene.
* Halloweenie has his fair share.
** "I get it. I ALSO '''HATE''' IT!"
** Witches are bitches!
** Spooooooky!
** CURSE YOU CADBURY!!
** Halloweenie is the life of the party!
* When a character in an animated movie eats another character in the cast. By "eats," I mean "inhales."
* Referring to someone strangling a woman as "going [[{{Series/DoctorWho}} Colin]] [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS21E7TheTwinDilemma}} Baker]]".
* Cutting away after the first line of a terrible musical number to let out a deadpan "Noooo...", then cutting back to the song.
* "[character's name]?! What are YEEEEWWWW doing here?!"
* Peter Venkman from ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' dryly commenting (in Lorenzo Music's voice, of course), "It wasn't ''that'' funny," after [[HumorDissonance someone laughs hysterically at a flat or nonexistent joke or pratfall]].
* Ohhhh noooooooo~
* Heh heh, good one!
* [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial ITS NOT WEIRD!]]
* The Golden Films, Good Times and Dingo movies have spawned a few.
** Beauty's father from the GT acting like a jerk and repeating, "Ayeeeee!"
** "(Object or person) got wet! He/she/it's completely useless now!"
** GT Beauty making an unconvincing gasp whenever something shocking happens.
** The Beast's "loneliness meter". (note: When Beauty asks the Beast to let her go see her family, he tells her that he will die of loneliness if she doesn't return within one week.)
** Him parodying Dingo's animation and dubbing errors.
** "The diamonds, my God!"
** "Damn hell"

** "I thought we could be friends!" "Nah, I think we should be enemies."

** Wabuu: "Most of [...] are so stupid."
* He sometimes starts randomly singing, to the theme of; WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers?
* Delivering a line with high energy and enthusiasm only for the next line to be delivered in a low energy monotone. to the point of MoodWhiplash
* Making backhanded jokes about ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee''.
* Sarcastically commenting, "What a prince", if the prince in question doesn't get called out in his movie for doing something jerkish (eg, searching for true love by judging women by physical attractiveness).
