* ColbertBump:
** His developer interview, developer commentary, and LetsPlay (with LetsPlay/LewisBrindley and LetsPlay/SimonLane of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}) on ''VideoGame/{{Magicka}}'' led to a lot more exposure for the game.
** Ditto for his "WTF is..." on ''FrozenSynapse'', which received such a ColbertBump that the game servers couldn't take the amount of players they got.
** His review for ''{{Proun}}'' received such high traffic that the developer's site crashed from the volume of traffic. This was the only place where the game could be bought.
** Without saying the trope name, he admitted that this is the basic point of "WTF is...?". It was made as a way of advertising good games and denouncing bad ones (based on first impressions only).
** His "WTF is..." on ''StellarImpact'' once again crashed the servers with the publicity his community brought. [[HilariousInHindsight Funny enough]], he had warned the indie developers that his community tended to crash websites before, and one of them said "[[TemptingFate Feel free to can crash my servers any time]]." [sic]
** His WTF-a-thon caused a similar situation, with viewers in the livestream flocking to the sites for the various games being advertised and inadvertently bringing them down. It quickly became something of a RunningGag throughout the livestream.
*** The effects of TB's ColbertBump can be seen ''live in video'' (recorded during the WTF-a-thon) in TB's run of ''Videogame/RealmOfTheMadGod'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvYEIvyuHIc behold]] more than 30 out of the possible 85 players in a server congregating around TB as his personal army. As a fan remarked, the effect of a "WTF is..." increases a game's population by 4000%.
** Lampshaded again in his video, "[=WTFree=] is VideoGame/NitronicRush?", where he posted the link to the game's torrent, so as to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3p3o4d7JUTI#t=88s not break the developers site]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YvrFZAykEI This cat video]] had next to zero attention when TB linked it during a livestream of ''VideoGame/KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'', as a result of TB's influence, it is now covered in artichoke-facts, and the [[TheOtherWiki wikipedia site for artichokes]] is mauled beyond recognition as of time of writing.
** TB is causing a lot more attention to the game GodHand since he said that "if I find out one of you doesn't like this game, I'll personally come to your house and kill you."
*** TB also caused a lot of popularity for LetsPlay/KungFuJesus's LP of God Hand as a result of his video, by way of linking it in the description.
** He {{Lampshades}} this in his WTF is.. of DLC Quest, saying that he can weaponize it by tweeting about the dev's site & crashing it.
** He has actually hit the "like" button on a few {{WebVideo/Retsupurae}} videos, which has lead to spikes in their popularity.
** This has led to a bit of a RunningGag - if TB draws attention to a video, game, project, whatever, when his fans get there they will announce "The Cynical Fleet has arrived."
*** [[DiscreditedMeme He doesn't exactly approve of that.]]
** And has happened yet again with One Finger Death Punch, with the devs outright stating in a [[http://imgur.com/GPl3y9y reddit reply]] that his First Impressions video helped save it from being a financial disaster.
* CreatorBacklash: TB has stated that he despised his Terraria series, seeing as it spawned {{forced meme}}s and the viewership is highest when nothing was accomplished at all.
* OneOfUs:
** Mentions that he reads TV Tropes in his February 15th 2012 Mailbox video, and is aware of his and Jesse Cox's pages.
** TB is a fan of several other things unrelated to video games, which he will occasionally talk about in great detail. For instance, he is a huge fan of Creator/TerryPratchett and has openly admitted to being a TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 fanboy.
* StreisandEffect: The publishers of ''Videogame/DayOneGarrysIncident'' and ''Guise of the Wolf'' both garnered huge amounts of negative publicity when they tried to misuse Youtube's Copyright Notice feature to remove TB's WTF is... videos on the games (he panned both of them for being [[ObviousBeta buggy messes]] that weren't fun to play).
