* ApprovalOfGod: He's aware of the [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPze-Hckg3ayKQHZS706R0A Unofficial TotalBiscuit Livestream VoD channel]], and he outright pointed to it when it comes to watching Stream [=VoD=]s.
* 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 ''VideoGame/FrozenSynapse'', which received such a ColbertBump that the game servers couldn't take the amount of players they got.
** His review for ''VideoGame/{{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 ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/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." He would go on to consider this a DiscreditedMeme.
** 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.
** He presented his Arbitrary Awards 2014, in which one of the categories was "Most interesting Gaming Youtube channel that isn't mine". The winner, [[spoiler:[=XboxAhoy=]]] had a significant boost in subscription numbers following the video.
** His review of VideoGame/RenownedExplorers got the developer, abbey games, out of bad weather. Two months after the releasing RE:IS, abbey games almost had to take loans in order to stay afloat, [[http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/AdriaanJansen/20160905/266289/Post_Mortem_Renowned_Explorers.php then totalbiscuit happened]]
* 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.
** He very much dislikes the video he did about the Kickstarter for the game ''Maia'', feeling it was bad journalism to demand that his viewers support a game made by an unproven developer, and feels he should never have made that video in the first place.
* OneOfUs:
** Mentions that he reads TV Tropes in his February 15th 2012 Mailbox video, and is aware of his and Jesse Cox's pages. He's given many a ShoutOut to various tropes over the years.
** 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 (If [[Discworld/CarpeJugulum the source of the name "Total Biscuit"]] wasn't enough of an indicator) and has openly admitted to being a [[{{TabletopGame/Warhammer40000}} Warhammer 40k]] fanboy (during a video of his where he [[{{Squee}} squee'd]] all over [[VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine a WH40K game]], no less). He demonstrated his fanboyishness in a Warhammer 40k Roleplay wherein he (playing as a Mechanicus Acolyte) managed to out-nerd the GM.
** Music-wise, he's a huge Music/IronMaiden fan.
* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: He publicly ended his association with the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}'s "Big Three" (LetsPlay/LewisBrindley, LetsPlay/SimonLane and CEO Mark Turpin) after falling out over Yogdiscovery, Lewis falsely accusing TB of doing non-disclosed sponsored content and Simon calling him a "crying pissbabby" over a ''comic book'' of all things. He later clarified that he doesn't have a beef with everyone in the network, as shown by his interactions with LetsPlay/{{Strippin}} and LetsPlay/{{Sips}}, plus his picking LetsPlay/{{Sjin}} for the Polaris Civil War crossover.
* 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).
* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: In 2016, TB retired from social media because he felt it was negatively impacting his health. His Twitter has since been taken over by a staffer. Thankfully this was later averted as TB opened a brand-new official subreddit in June and has been pretty good at interacting with fans on there(and even promising to do AMAs).
