[-[[caption-width-right:250:These are just some of the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many characters]] who are regularly "pooped".]]-]

-> ''"Where there's smoke, they pinch back!"''

''[=YouTube Poop=]'' (often referred to by its shorthand, "YTP") is a Neo-UsefulNotes/{{Dada}} art form consisting of video remixes that are edited from a large array of video clips in order to [[MindScrew confuse]], [[{{Troll}} stun]] or [[SoBadItsGood entertain]] the viewer. The source material can be mashed all together into a nonsensical CrossOver story, or just repeat footage of the characters gesticulating oddly or [[ManipulativeEditing apparently saying something dirty]] [[OverlyLongGag over and over and over again]]. There are also well-known phrases such as [[http://images.encyclopediadramatica.com/images/7/70/BitchesPingas.jpg "PINGAS"]] or [[http://images.encyclopediadramatica.com/images/2/2a/Barrelroll.gif "Do a Barrel Roll!"]].

[=YouTube Poop=] started with [[http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperYoshi SuperYoshi]] testing out Windows Movie Maker, a new piece of software he found in his newly installed Windows XP, using the episode "Recycled Koopa" from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3''. The result was a video containing a few clips from the episode repeated and used in a random manner. Later he put this video as The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 Remixed on December 22, 2004, up on his ''[=SheezyArt=]'' page. The video was well received and [=SuperYoshi=] together with his friend [[http://www.youtube.com/user/RetroJape RetroJape]] made similiar remixes using the ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' cartoon and later ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''. A few more of [=SuperYoshi=]'s friends joined and started putting their videos on Website/YouTube in order to confuse and anger people who were otherwise looking for regular ''Super Mario'' or ''[=AoSTH=]'' videos. The first three Poops have been brought to [=YouTube=] later as ''I'D SAY HE'S HOT ON OUR TAIL'', ''Dr. Light's Guidance System Show'' and ''Robotnik's Sodomy Fest of 2005'', respectively.

Interestingly, precursors to [=YouTube Poop=] can be found in ''WesternAnimation/DaffyDuckInHollywood'', a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1938]] short in which Daffy edits a film reel to produce [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWEpbYffbF8 this]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYdmk3GP3iM "Schickelgruber Doing the Lambeth Walk"]], UsefulNotes/WorldWarII propaganda short that edits footage of Nazi parades to make the soldiers look like they're dancing, and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2aNb2jcpP4&feature=PlayList&p=9E46758910752D95&index=12 Cult Toons]]'', a TV show made for Creator/CartoonNetwork UK that mixed old Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons like ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' with wrestling, kung fu, and {{blaxploitation}} movies for cheap laughs. UsefulNotes/RichardNixon even put out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hM0CBfwI_Ck an attack ad]] on UsefulNotes/HubertHumphrey in the 1968 presidential campaign that bears a surprising similarity to Poop conventions. Going further back, [=YouTube=] Poop can be compared to the UsefulNotes/{{Dada}} art movement of the early 20th century, which was based on being nonsensical.

It was not until people like [[http://www.youtube.com/user/electricthecheese The Electric Cheese]] got to know about these videos and started making ones themselves that the term ''Website/YouTube Poop'' was used for them and that they increased in popularity.

With the growing popularity, [=YouTube Poop=] shifted from being videos that confuse people who were looking for regular videos (in fact, the people who started it are more fond of "WTF?" comments than people commenting or repeating the parts they liked in the video and were dismissive of the term "Youtube Poop" for a long time) to videos that entertain people by using video sources that have become iconic with the name [=Youtube Poop=].

The genre suffered a decline in popularity during TheNewTens, in part due to the copyright takedowns and other forms of using extensive editing for humor showing up. This resulted in many members of the scene either moving on to other forms or retiring altogether. The ones that did come out were much more sophisticated, with higher quality in animation, editing, and sentence mixing. This led to debate over whether they should be considered the same genre as the earlier Youtube Poops.

Although most of the Youtube Poop videos are made in English, there are videos prpduced in other languages, too, e.g. in Russian (called "RYTP" = "Russian Youtube Poop"), German (German Youtube Poop is commonly called "Youtube-Kacke" and is a literal translation of the original name), Spanish ("YTPH" = Youtube Poop Hispano) and many others.

Aside from the aforementioned cartoons above, among the staples included cutscenes from the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames Philips CD-i]] [[VideoGame/HotelMario video games]]. [[Trivia/YouTubePoop Many other sources of varying notability]] have been used in [=YTPs=].

* ''[[WesternAnimation/DaffyDuckInHollywood Gold Is Where You Find It]]''[[note]]Technically not a [=YouTube=] Poop, as the cartoon it hails from, ''Daffy Duck in Hollywood'', was created decades before the internet, much less YouTube, even existed, but it has been given the dubious honor of being one of the earliest, if not the first, forerunners to the remix video style of a [=Youtube Poop=].

[[folder:Tropes commonly invoked with these videos]]
* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: There are plenty of poops that follow the events of their primary source relatively closely, only to suddenly [[OffTheRails veer off in a completely different direction]]:
** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcbmCJ4e4g8 YTP: Sharp Talk]]'' goes through the events of ''WesternAnimation/SharkTale'' as they happened in the movie (albeit with many more [[ReferenceOverdosed references to other shows]]), only to suddenly change when Oscar, Lenny and Sykes get to Don Lino's meeting place. In this version, [[spoiler: Oscar sets his plan into motion, revealing to Lino that he's had Lenny order a giant ship to aim guns at all the sharks in the world. [[EvenEvilHasStandards When Lino begs him not to]], Oscar refuses and blows them all up aside from Lenny and Lino. Lino ends up trapped and {{forced to watch}} Oscar gloat about being a real Sharkslayer, and Oscar proceeds to leave the two sharks to die in his trap. [[DownerEnding Having killed every shark on Earth]], [[VillainWithGoodPublicity Oscar then becomes governor]], solidifying his FaceHeelTurn into a VillainProtagonist.]]
* [[invoked]] AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Uses at least 90% of them.
* AprilFools: Many poopers create special poops to be uploaded on April 1st, either individually or as part of a collaboration, which are intentionally made in a StylisticSuck fashion, reminiscent of the poops of 2004-2007 when the art was new to mainstream.
* ArcWords: "[=JoJ=]" and "sus."
* AuthorAppeal: Many poopers reuse certain source footage. For instance, one pooper may focus mainly on Creator/BillyMays material, one on CD-i cutscenes, etc. Many users have focused on Creator/MichaelRosen poops.
** Danielle Pluzsik has used a certain scene from a ''WebVideo/JonTron'' episode that has an UncannyValley talking boot known as "the Great Bootleg" vomiting up a game disc while announcing that it's dying. It's been seen in every poop since "Invader Zim Develops a Phobia of [=AIDs=]".
* {{Beat}}: Somewhat common in poops, undoubtedly used to show that a character is either TooDumbToLive or ComicallyMissingThePoint. Here's an example from ''Link Discovers Ganon's Least Favorite Colour'':
-->'''Gwonam:''' It is written that only Link can defeat Ganon and Link is in space.
-->'''The King:''' ''We're going to be under attack by the evil forces of Ganon!''
-->'''Gwonam:''' [[ServileSnarker Now you finally get it.]]
** And in "Vegeta Gives Away Bees":
-->'''Nappa:''' Vegeta, what does the scouter say about Bass?
-->''Bass appears''
-->'''Bass:''' Called me?
-->'''Bass:''' YOU MUST DIE!
* BerserkButton: Naturally, what will piss off a character in a YTP [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the pooper]], but there are some things that will be a BerserkButton for a character no matter whose YTP they're in. For starters, whenever someone messes with [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames The King's]] dinner, it never ends well for them.
* BigDamnHeroes: You wouldn't think that [=YouTube=] Poops would have something like it, but in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znM_CwLv9Dw - Gwonam The Extortionist throws King Harkinian into Financial Chaos]]", it's Ganon that pulls this off. It's followed with a BadassBoast.
-->'''Ganon:''' I will make your face ''DIE''.
-->'''Gwonam:''' My face...
-->'''Ganon:''' Your face.
-->'''Gwonam:''' ...will die.
-->'''Ganon:''' Will ''die''.
-->'''Gwonam:''' Fuck.
* BlackComedy: Quite commonly.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN2QbPuPORI Billy Mays - Suicide Putty]]"
** Also many of [[Creator/EmperorLemon Emperor Lemon]]'s and [[Creator/CartoonLover98 Cartoonlover98]]'s poops.
** An early Dr. Rabbit YTP has the ''Challenger'' explosion in it.
** A ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' poop has Luigi kicking the World Trade Center.
** A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nG4LoFoz6g YouTube Poop]] by Mario R consists of video from a project the Columbine shooters submitted for school - edited with the Super Mario World theme over it so it seems they're rapping to it. A few other videos use various footage of them as well.
** Mad Mothz's "Offensive Collab" is a poop where people deliberately tried to be as dark as possible.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5LAiT339co Sonic learns how to die]]" by Danielle Pluzsik.
* {{Blipvert}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL5nBkQbuwI This poop]] contains an example from 1:33 to 1:36.
* ButtMonkey: Considering the nature of WebAnimation/YouTubePoop, ''everybody'' has been this trope at least once, but there are some characters who appear in Youtube Poop almost exclusively as a ButtMonkey. Duke Onkled from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames'' is a notable example, partly because he was already a DirtyCoward in the game. Luigi from The [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld Super Mario World]] cartoon is another, partly because of the "Mama Luigi" episode, which had Yoshi thinking Luigi was his mama, and Mario laughing at this.
* CastFullOfGay: Occasionally. For example, the ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' collabs have dialogue that suggests that the men of Arlen do little else than exchange sexual favours with each other. Hank seems to be omnisexual (with ''Peggy'' seemingly being the only exception) but it's hard to tell with anyone else.
* CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase: Several [=YTPs=] have titles like this such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-zTjdvTccM Princess Celestia and the Quest for a Good Laxitive]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzhI9_5yBiI Michael Rosen and the Plumspiracy]].
* CloudCuckooLand: The ostensible setting of most poops.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Often, some characters will do bizarre, random things or spout absolute nonsense due to RuleOfFunny.
* ClusterFBomb: In the more vulgar varieties of YTP.
-->'''Twilight Sparkle:''' Oh, Spike, you compulsive masturbating faggot. We don't have time for your bullshit.
-->'''Spike:''' Come on, Twilight!
-->'''Twilight Sparkle:''' No, Spike. What the fucking shit is wrong with you?
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In many instances. For example, take any scene, and zoom in on some person or object in the background or off to the side, and make a big deal of it. Another great example is how important the wheeze is from the line "That's 'Mama Luigi' to you, Mario! ''*wheeze*''"--important enough that commenters will observe when it is missing. This may also be used to point out OffModel moments.
* ContinuityNod: Happens rarely, but some poopers do reference events in previous poops.
* CrapsaccharineWorld: Due to the nature of Youtube Poops, this usually happens to the setting that they take place in. A notable victim of this trope is [[WebAnimation/AdventuresInHyrule Hyrule]], which is often portrayed as a seemingly stable kingdom but ruled by a tyrannical ManChild and his often depraved royal servants. Recently, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]] is also getting this treatment in poops, not really helped by the fact that the Princess which rules over it has been [[FanNickname dubbed]] "Trollestia" by the fans of the actual show.
* CreatorCameo: While it's generally frowned upon to use one's own voice in their poops, some poopers like to insert themselves in their poops, often times through AuthorAvatar. Usually, this is used as a means of SelfDeprecation or just to portray what went through the pooper's head during the creation process.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as common of an archtype as you would think, as most characters in YTP tend to ignore the "deadpan" part and outright snark or insult another character. As a result, those who appear in vids almost exclusively as one are usually such in canon, such as Kyon from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' and Frollo from ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''.
* DenserAndWackier: By their very nature, [=YouTube=] Poops are often edited in a way to be much crazier than the sources used.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Many poops have a character repeat themselves. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-FaceFJYCk A British nanny, must be a nanny.]]"
* DependingOnTheWriter: A result of AlternateCharacterInterpretation. Some characters can go from being a JerkAss in one poop to TheDitz or a RealityWarper in others.
* DepravedBisexual: An exceptionally common AlternateCharacterInterpretation, especially in poops that focus the CD-i Zelda games.
* DerangedAnimation: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcmqYFIFrWQ Madanonymous]] and poopers like him make these.
* DownerEnding: Despite all of the [=YTPs=] being funny in some way, some of them do end in some sort of sad, or at least [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet]], manner. [[BlackComedy However, other unhappy endings are played for laughs.]]
** Examples include Stromboli throwing Pinocchio [[https://youtu.be/J22rSG1hMLc into a wood chipper]], or [[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail Tiger]] [[SwallowedWhole swallowing]] [[https://youtu.be/XjezmKyhYIM Fievel alive.]]
* DropTheCow: A popular way to end [=YTPs=], especially the EverythingExplodesEnding subtrope.
* EveryoneIsGay: Happens a lot. ''The King's Secret'' is a good example.
* EvilIsPetty: In Big Bird Brings Death To Sesame Street, Big Bird decides to murder the other residents of Sesame Street simply because he is tired of the winter season. Presumably to avoid being caught by the authorities, he disguises his weapons as pretty flowers.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Many [=YTPs=] have titles this easily applies to, often because there isn't much to describe. This applies especially often to titles of the form "X does Y for Z minutes." (Sometimes with an added note about fitting or unfitting music played.) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4HFmKad2pA This]] would be an example.
* ForcedMeme: The ratio of genuine memes to forced memes in the YTP community is probably greater than 1:10.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Some poopers will insert text messages that are only visible by pausing the video.
* HehHehYouSaidX: It's a staple of most YTP in general, but especially of the "this video will be flagged" variety.
* IceCreamKoan: Some of the more comprehensible sentence-mixed nonsense could be interpreted as this. Take, for instance, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pnxwem00Fl8 this video]]:
-->''"There are no dames like a book''
-->''And nothing looks like a book''
-->''There are no drinks like a book''
-->''And nothing thinks like a drink"''
* InterruptingMeme: Some poops replace random nouns with "[[VideoGame/HotelMario SPAGHETTI]]" or "[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog PINGAS]]". They're not very good.
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum: Runs on 100% nonsensoleum. How much this is true can vary from poop to poop, as some actually attempt to tell a coherent story of sorts, others are simply to make the viewer say, [[MindScrew "What did I just watch?"]]
* KillThemAll: A common ending.
* LargeHam: [[WorldOfHam Lots of characters,]] notably [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames King Harkinian, Link, Gwonam, Ganon, Morshu]], VideoGame/IMMeen, [[Film/ThreeHundred King Leonidas]], [[Anime/DragonBallZ Vegeta, Goku, Nappa]], [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros Mario, Luigi, King Koopa, Yoshi]], [[Memes/{{Advertising}} George the Volcano, Tyrannosaurus Alan]], [[WesternAnimation/DoctorRabbit Dr. Rabbit]], [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]], [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Sonic, Dr. Robotnik, Scratch, Grounder]], and [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim Zim]]. Many of them were already large hams in the source material, but [=YTPs=] turn it up a notch sometimes.
* LighterAndSofter: Some veteran poopers have made family-friendly poops either for fun or for a collab, such as [=cs188's=] "Steve Ballmer Sells Clean Windows". Other poopers, such as Creator/{{DaThings1}}, seem to be able to build their entire repertoire on keeping their material clean in a usually [[RefugeInVulgarity vulgar]] genre.
* ManipulativeEditing: One of the premises of WebAnimation/YouTubePoop. Example: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2oL7c6C66M&t=4m5s SENT-ence MIX-ing with ROBOTNIK is SOOO FCK-ing EA-zy! Why are YOU PEE-ple SOOO im-PRESSED BYE it?]] An sufficiently skilled [[HehHehYouSaidX Youtube Pooper]] can let the characters say, what he wants.
* {{Mondegreen}}: Often invoked to make characters sound as if they are saying something obscene. Robotnik's "Snoo-PINGAS usual, I see" is probably one of the most famous.
* MortonsFork: "You must die! ...Or else you will die!" is a popular Ganon splice.
* TheMovie: Many have been made. There's one for the [[VideoGame/SonicR Tails Doll]]; it's so long it needs 9 parts.
** Then there's the 7-part [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLplR2PPMu8u71_PSVP4jfew4aMfRGb9BM Jonah and the Crappy-Quest for NinivaviniN]], made from WesternAnimation/JonahAVeggieTalesMovie.
** Some YTP Collabs can reach over an hour in length!
* [[invoked]] {{Narm}}: The biggest source of entertainment in [=YouTube=] Poop.
* OverlyLongGag: "X does Y for Z minutes"
** Also, some poops have jokes going on for a while, and some people tend to get bored/annoyed and just watch something else.
* OverusedRunningGag: Spadinner memes, like "spaghetti", "dinner", "pingas", and "WTF boom". Professional poopers hardly use these at all, but these spadinner memes can be played with and can still be funny if done right.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: A common interpretation of [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames King Harkinian]], who is shown doing CrazyAwesome things from watching TV to traveling to Africa, rather than acting like a proper king. If his authority is used as a plot point, he's most likely abusing it for petty purposes.
* RandomEventsPlot: Happens in many - in fact, most - poops.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Parodied with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8b5V3EFfPi0 "Frustrated Sonic Insults the Kids"]].
* RefugeInAudacity: The medium as a whole is often known for manipulating footage to create high amounts of vulgar humor.
* RewindGag: A frequent gag.
* TheRuleOfFirstAdopters: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. As much as poops revel in VulgarHumor, porn has not been an important part of the foundation of Youtube Poop, and - aside from the occasional FreezeFrameBonus - is hardly ever used at all. The first adopters in this case are {{troll}}s that have found inventive ways to confuse and annoy audiences; this also goes for [[BaitAndSwitch trap videos]] and [[SensoryAbuse ear rape]].
* SadlyMythtaken: PlayedForLaughs in a plethora of videos parodying the animated segment of the anti-Mormon propaganda film "The God Makers". [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YcC-pK5zMg This video alone]] contains, among other things, King Harkanian being head of the Mormon Gods, Joseph Smith being Jesus and Lucifer's brother, and the angels that joined Lucifer being punished by [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment being born into Mormon families]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[Series/SesameStreet Cookie Monster]] does this repeatedly in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CAaCztUOzs Youtube Poop - Kermit trolls Cookie Monster]].
* SensoryAbuse: Quite a few, known as "ear rape" poops. If you see a comment that says "[[MemeticMutation RIP headphone users]]", watch out.
* ServileSnarker: [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames Gwonam]] and [[VideoGame/IMMeen Gnorris]] are usually portrayed as such in [=YTPs=], often insulting The King and IM Meen for just about everything they do.
* ShoutOut: You'd be hard-pressed to find a poop that doesn't have at least one. More often than not, they just amount to simple {{Jump Cut}}s to the respective clips, but sometimes, the references are more subtle.
* SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror: Ever since [=OrpheusFTW=] and [=LinkOnDrugs=] came into the YTP scene, [=YTPs=] have started dipping deeper and deeper into horror. A few of Danielle Pluzsik's poops are this as well.
* SoundtrackDissonance: "X does Y while I play unfitting music"
* TheStinger: These were used for [[EnforcedTrope practical reasons]] back when Youtube would sometimes cut off the last few seconds of a video after it was uploaded, with "cutoff prevention" often used as a caption. These days that's not a problem anymore, but a poop may still have a stinger for comedic effect.
* StuffBlowingUp: Common in many poops, such as Danielle Pluzsik's.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: You Tube Poop Music Video, or YTPMV, where a source is remixed to the melody of a song (or less commonly, a new song made by the creator).
* SubvertedKidsShow: While kids' shows aren't the only thing used in YTP, they ''are'' one of the ''main'' things in it, and the comedic effect of [[ManipulativeEditing editing things to sound vulgar]] is a lot more noticeable when the source material itself is for children. This is taken UpToEleven by [=YTPs=] of {{Edutainment}} shows like "Dr. Rabbit's World Tour."

** "Sonic learns how to die" encourages kids that someone trying to touch them is good, their teacher can touch them, and gives a suicide tutorial to them.
* SuddenlyShouting: Just raising the clip's volume level can turn any line into this. Usually paired with RantInducingSlight and/or SensoryAbuse.
* SurrealHumor: It's a safe bet to say that over 80% of [=YTPs=] humor comes from bizzare non-sequiter lines and moments. On the [[HorrorTropes flip side.]]
** SurrealHorror: Many ''many'' [=YTPs=] have creepy moments that play out like bad trips and fever dreams.
* StraightMan: Characters that play this role in their respective works are also played as such in poops. Common examples include [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames Zelda]], [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]], and any interpretation of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] not voiced by Creator/CharlesMartinet.
* ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet: To this day people will get very surprised if a YTP maker turns out to be female. Prominent female [=YTPers=] include [[Main/BaconatedGrapefruits BaconatedGrapefruits]], [=Igiulamam=], [[WebAnimation/LinkAndTheHyruleGang MechaWeegee91]], [=RootNegativeSixteen=], [=AwfulFawfultheFalafe=], [=CombuskenIsAwesome=] and Danielle Pluzsik.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Almost every regular Youtube Poop character has been killed at least once.
** Possibly the best example is Harrybo's Grandad in Creator/MichaelRosen poops, considering his only appearance was about his death and the two dealing with it, making him a real character made this inevitable.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Or more accurately, memetic favorite food; various major YTP characters have foods they are associated with because of lines from source material. For example, Luigi is associated with spaghetti and the bagel, Mario is associated with toast, Sonic with chili dogs, and the King with dinner.
-->'''Luigi:''' I hope she made lots of spaghetti!
* {{Troll}}ing: Used to be used for it, but most are mainly just for entertainment now.
* {{Uncancelled}}: Quite a few [=YTPers=] had "retirements" that didn't stick. Examples: WebAnimation/{{Walrusguy}}, mark3611, [=RootNegativeSixteen=], and [=AReallyAwesomeGuy117=].
* UnreadablyFastText: A favorite technique of a lot of Poopers, sneaking a hidden message that you need to pause at the right moment to read.
* VoiceClipSong: The more advanced YTPMV's are this, if they're not just {{Stupid Statement Dance Mix}}es.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: A.k.a. "G Major", this is often used to make someone/something sound demonic. Sometimes appears in ''entire videos'' and even '''other YTPs!'''
* VulgarHumor: As the innocence of the source material increases, [[SubvertedKidsShow the probability of vulgarity]] approaches 1.
* WordSaladHumor: Often invoked by playing a clip backwards, then using captions to indicate what the reversed speech sounds like. Other times, you get things like "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy-fx69ISok You can put cheese up my ass with the flick of a switch!]]"
* WorldOfChaos: What most, if not all, poops with any semblance of a plotline take place in. And really, just about every poop that ''doesn't'' too.

[[folder:Tropes related to the genre itself]]
* TheDreaded: Copyright strikes and especially channel terminations.
* GuideDangIt: Certain things to know about video editing that are ''very'' important, but poopers wouldn't know about until well after they started (if at all), like disabling [[ScrappyMechanic ghosting]] in Sony Vegas or getting the highest quality source material possible.
* HumbleBeginnings: Youtube Poop began as an InJoke between [=SuperYoshi=] and his friends, and stayed that way until its popularity boom in 2007.
* NoFourthWall: Especially prevalent in tennis matches, as they're as much about the communication between participants as they are about the videos themselves. This isn't as commonly seen from poopers that treat their videos as standalone works.
* SeriousBusiness: The haters can take their hatred of [=YouTube=] Poops quite...seriously. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLoHlUAaTp4 Case in point.]] [[note]](At least, if this particular video is meant to be taken seriously; it's hard to tell, considering some of the [=YouTube=] Poop haters out there.)[[/note]]
* SturgeonsLaw: There sure are a lot of amateurs out there and most aren't very good at it. For every clever sentence mixing video, there are ten others using outdated memes and repeating a clip at varying speeds for seven seconds. The good poops, however, are worth dying for. Most agree that Youtube Poop in general has gotten better over the years (the worst quality poops tend to be from the 2006-2008 years, though you can still find good poops from then and bad ones from more recent years).
* TechnicianVersusPerformer: Despite Youtube Poop being a dadaist artform, there's a wide variation of how poopers interpret and practice the genre. Technicians like Creator/MoBrosStudios observe "poop theory" and meticulously edit their work; performers like dew express a nihilistic perspective of the genre ("There are no bad poops") and go all out with their source material. Both sides are perfectly valid, and play an important role in how one creates their work.
* ThatCameOutWrong: Attention is often drawn to it through videos that take lines out of context to make them sound dirty.
* WordSaladTitle: The titles are usually nonsensical and bizarre.
