* ColbertBump:
** His developer interview, developer commentary, and LetsPlay with the {{Yogscast}} on ''{{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."
** And has happened yet again with One Finger Death Punch, with the devs outright stating in a [[http://imgur.com/GPl3y9y redit reply]] that his First Impressions video helped save it from being a financial disaster.
* [[DiscreditedMeme He doesn't exactly approve of that.]]
* 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.
