* ColbertBump: A few of the guest players, like LetsPlay/JoshJepson get more popularity after appearing in a TRG Let's Play.
* CreatorBacklash: Chugga has admitted multiple times that he wasn't happy with how the Mario Party 3 project turned out.
* FandomNod: In Episode 3, they make a nod to Chugga's {{Flanderized}} love of wearing polo shirts, which he even turns into a CargoShip moment. "STOP TRYING TO MAKE OUT WITH POLO SHIRTS!"
* NamesTheSame: A few tournament guests have had the same name as others. Most notably, [[WebVideo/IsItAGoodIdeaToMicrowaveThis Jon Paula]] for [[CaptainObvious Proton Jon.]]
** In the Smash 64 tournament, LetsPlay/AttackingTucans shares the same name as Tyler from LetsPlay/WiiRikeToPray.
* OldShame: The Guys don't seem to like remembering the first Thrown Controllers panel due to all the technical difficulties.
* OneOfUs: They say that they went to go see a Music/TheProtomen concert at PAX. [[ShoutOut Chuggaaconroy added that they were awesome]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVwSxw4jNDM&t=13m43s "TV Tropes just kinda had a heart attack."]]
** Jon also directly references [[HeavyRain Press X]] [[HollerButton To Jason.]] And [[PressXToNotDie Press A to not die.]]
** And the fact that TV Tropes has labeled NCS as TheMedic and Josh as TheChick. It's pretty much confirmed by now that they've been reading this page.
* ScheduleSlip:
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]. After Globe Trot, the ''Wii Party'' LP was suddenly stopped in favour of beginning ''[=LittleBigPlanet=]'', leading to a lot of people thinking that ''Wii Party'' had just been filler. As it turned out, it ''was'' its own Let's Play, and resumed after ''[=LittleBigPlanet=]'' ended.
** Happened to Yoshi's Tropical Island (''Mario Party 1'') due to their hotel's unstable internet connection.
** Jon has revealed that a ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'' tournament was recorded at a convention in 2014, but the audio was lost and the Guys are still trying to reconstruct it from secondary recordings.
** After the second round of VideoGame/DokaponKingdom, the next project was delayed due to multiple conventions such as ConBravo and Nerd HQ being so close together. Then Chugga got sick for three weeks after the two conventions causing another delay.
* ViralMarketing: [[http://youtu.be/-4IBW6ETPbo&t=44m22s According to Jon]] in a [[WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} Retsutalk]] video, Nintendo actually contacted the guys to get them to promote [=NSMB2=], and even gave them prizes to give out.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Several channel names were considered: Splitscreen Shenanigans, Loud Players, Let's Play Crossover, and Press Start to LP. Then it's placed into humorous proportions as Chugga says:
---> '''Chugga:''' I got it! 'Press L to P!'
---> '''Jon:''' (tries to say something, then sighs) I hate you so much.
** There was going to be a tenth player in the ''Mario Power Tennis'' tournament, but they dropped out.
** They were going to have a guest player for ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', but they couldn't make it because of a scheduling snafu. It's implied by a comment of Chugga's that the guest player was going to be LetsPlay/JoshJepson.
** In his intro video, Chugga talks about several alternative names for the group they considered. Some of them are also referenced in the main videos, such as "Press Start to LP" ("Press L to P!") and "Splitscreen Shenanigans".
*** According to Jon in episode 12 of ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', another name idea was "Shark Uppercut", which was literally something random Jon just thought up out of nowhere.
** According to Jon's Formspring, LP#7 was planned to be ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'', but because Josh, Tim, [=SuperJeenius=], and Pcull44444 were playing that game at the time, they decided to hold off on it until later.
** In his solo channel, Chugga said there was planned to be a ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'' LP. However, they called it off because they thought the game doesn't work well with two people. (and [[VideogameCrueltyPotential because they couldn't kill eachother]]) Later, Chugga LP'ed it himself, though he did make one multiplayer video featuring Jon.
