[[DescribeTopicHere Describe Smosh he]]- ''[[CouchGag SHUT UP!]]''

Smosh is a popular, comedic Website/YouTube duo, which at one point was the #1 subscribed channel on the site.[[note]]As of July 2014, they are currently the fifth most subscribed, not counting Youtube's channels.[[/note]] Anthony Padilla, age 26, and Ian Hecox, age 26, are the stars of Smosh. They became famous in 2005 for their lipsynch to the first English ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' theme song. They have created some of Website/YouTube's most popular videos, including "Teleporting Fat Guy" and the "Boxman" series. Videos can be found at their official site [[http://www.smosh.com/ Smosh.com]] and on their Website/YouTube channels [[http://www.youtube.com/user/smosh smosh]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/IanH IanH]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/askcharlie askcharlie]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/anthonypadilla anthonypadilla]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ElSmosh ElSmosh]], [[http://www.youtube.com/user/SmoshGames SmoshGames]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ShutUpCartoons ShutUpCartoons]], the last two of which [[WebVideo/SmoshGames have their]] [[WebAnimation/ShutUpCartoons own pages]].

[[folder:Food Battle]]

* MindScrew: The ending of Food Battle 2012. [[spoiler:While Anthony is unconscious, Ian secretly switches their brains, but it backfires on him as he replaced Anthony's heart with a pink frosted sprinkled donut. So Anthony wins, while he's in Ian's body...]] [[AvertedTrope And no]], [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext it does NOT make sense in context.]]

* AscendedMeme: In ''Xtreme Sleepover!'', While the two boys are trying to sleep, Anthony is lying flat on the ground facedown while Ian has his butt up in the air, leading to people saying Ian was planking wrong.

* BigNo:
** [[spoiler:In "My Bobblehead is Evil," just as Anthony electrocutes himself and the bobblehead's head explodes.]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDizJA6DP-0 Good Vs. Surprisingly Good!]]" has the guys doing anything stupid...but when the Harlem Shake comes up on the list, [[TakeThat all we get is a resounding simultaneous "NO!"]] from both Anthony and Ian.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS_NKaKnYnA We're In Super Mario!]] as well.

* ABoyAndHisX: "My Pet Pikachu."
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: 15 Hour Energy is described as...
** All Natural
** Contains 50,000% of Your Daily Dose of Vitamin B6
** and Benzoylmethylecgonine (cocaine)
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Extensively in "JURASSIC POKEMON".
-->'''Dr. Sattler''': Maybe we shouldn't be messing with mother nature. [[GaiasVengeance This could really come back and bite us in the ass.]]
-->'''Dr. Grant''': [[GenreSavvy Wow, it's almost like you're foreshadowing the events that are gonna happen]], so later when all the Pokemon break loose we'd be like, "Huh, I guess we should've listened to that smart woman and not mess with mother nature."
-->'''Professor Oak''': Bros, chill out! [[TemptingFate Nothing bad is gonna happen, unless of course the power were to go out in some catastrophic storm, but that'll never happen.]]
-->'''Narrator''': [[LampshadeHanging OR COULD IT?]]
* BrickJoke: During ''Evil Fortune Cookie'', Anthony's middle name (Danger).
** Revisited much, much later in ''WORST ID PHOTO EVER!''
** In "A Smoshy Christmas," the viewer cannot fail to see Anthony's [[ComedicUnderwearExposure underwear-clad ass]] as he is about to start telling Ian the "story." Ian then points out towards the end that Anthony forgot to fasten his butt-flap. Part 2 ends with the underwear vanishing completely.
** Electrocution by toaster in "My Bobblehead is Evil!"
* ButtMonkey: Ian gets treated much worse than Anthony. Boxman also qualifies. And we can't forget Stevie.
* CallBack: ''Best Toy Ever'' recreates the scene from ''Dolls'' where Ian discovers Anthony's little secret...
** The throwaway line in "Stuck In A Toilet!" where Anthony complains about hating it when people record vertically. A few months later, in "iPhone 5 Revealed," the clueless dad tries to record his son's birthday party vertically, but the new iPhone [[DisproportionateRetribution catches fire and burns his hand.]]
** The RunningGag of Anthony being increasingly less clothed in "Paranormal Easy Bake Oven" also returns in "iPhone 5 Revealed." It only progresses to the point where he's down to his undershirt (the pants stay on this time.)
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSlRaeoJSGY&list=UUY30JRSgfhYXA6i6xX1erWg&index=1 Holy Crap, 2 Billion Views!]]" is just full of these. Among them we have: Officer Anous (shooting [[WebVideo/SmoshGames Sohinki, Lasercorn and Jovenshire]] for standing in a shower with a limit of two grown men), Boxman, and of course Friendship Always Wins!
** ''WORST PROPOSALS EVER!'' has Anthony finding out that his mom is his dad, which was also mentioned in ''FIRETRUCK!''
* CampGay: The commercial director (played by Ian) in "Biggest Zit Ever!" But eventually, it turns out he's really into AnythingThatMoves.
** The director returns in "If TV Shows Were Real," directing an episode of ''JerseyShore'' and having The Situation (Anthony) punch Snooki over and over.
--->'''Director:''' I love my job! Do it again! This time, punch her in the uterus!
** CampStraight: Claus from "Worst Online Date Ever" speaks with a lisp, has some gay mannerisms, is given a massage by a muscular black guy in his "Massage Dungeon", but he loves his supple wife a lot and, because of a commercial that said, if the users of his website won't find anyone,they get to marry Claus' hot wife,and Ian didn't find anyone,crossdresses so he won't lose her.
* CanadaEh: Exaggerated in "A Smoshy Christmas," in which the Mountie running border patrol has a [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent hilariously bad accent]] that seems to waver between Newfie and [[{{Oireland}} Oirish.]]
* CaptainObvious: The news reporter in "Badass New Power Rangers," when the witch starts attacking, yells that the situation "really sucks balls."
* CatchPhrase: [[ColdOpen Can you imagine how stupid it'd be if X were actually realistic? *happy music*]]
** Anthony is very fond of the word 'Bitch'.
* CatsAreMean: ''Cat Soup''.
* CelebrityEndorsement: [[{{subverted}} Not exactly.]] ''Ian'' has to mention Shaun White's new snowboarding video game twice so that he can pay for his mother's beard transplant in ''Shaun White Pays For Woman's Beard Transplant''.
* CelebrityResemblance: Anthony is often noted by fans for his resemblance to [[PanicAtTheDisco Brendon Urie.]]
** Similarly, some have noted that Ian (especially in the earlier vids) looks like ZacharyQuinto and/or [[Music/{{Chiodos}} Craig Owens]].
* ChromaKey: Fairly obvious when it's used, with the low budget and all.
* ClusterFBomb: The end of "iPhone 5 Revealed." Who knew Steve Jobs had such a potty mouth...or such a propensity for violence?
** Also done by Metrosexual Hipster's [[VideoGame/PokemonXandY Chespin]] after being commanded to use Curse in "Pokemon in Real Life 5".
** Ian had to tell his mom about the worst dream he had last night as part of doing Anthony's morning routine, which resulted in this.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Ian, repeatedly in "My Bobblehead is Evil!" [[spoiler:After the TwistEnding comes out, it turns out to be ObfuscatingStupidity instead.]]
** Basically the entire point of "LIFE BETTER-ERS!"
* ContinuityNod:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lFfF5XLsCQ Pokemon Theme Song Revenge]] contains a number of callbacks to the original [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOX3OmUhQoo Pokemon Theme Song video]], perhaps most notably [[spoiler:[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Go, Anthonymon!"]]]].
* ContinuityPorn: Their video celebrating 2 billion views contains pretty much every one of their characters from their 2013 videos.
** Teleporting Fat Guy comes back in "Rejected Videos". Only [[spoiler: he's not so fat anymore]].
** The easy button and easy step have been reused form time to time.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Anthony gets one in ''A Very Hairy Situation W/ Billy Mays'' when he's [[ThoroughlyMistakenIdentity mistaken]] [[CelebrityResemblance for]] Creator/BillyMays and kidnapped by terrorists. His punishment? Being forced to watch TheHills.
* CouchGag: A random clip playing when the Smosh logo comes up in the beginning ''always'' gets interrupte-'''''SHUT! UP!'''''
* CrosscastRole: Due to two males being the main actors, it's bound to happen.
* {{Crossover}}:
** Charlie the Drunk Guinea Pig appears in '''''AnnoyingOrange''': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_h9isVGcE8 Saw 2: Annoying Death Trap]]''.
** TheAnnoyingOrange himself appears in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MtBaFKa_F4 HARRY POTTER DELETED SCENES!]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NL9lQ-DiL80 I LOST MY HAIR!]]''.
** The two also appear as a couple of random {{Mooks}} in Machinima/RedVsBlue season 9.
** The two also appear in Freddie Wong's episode Huge Guns.
** [[Creator/NigaHiga Ryan Higa]], [[LetsPlay/PewDiePie Pewds]], [[WebVideo/EpicMealTime Harley]], JennaMarbles and Tyler Oakley all guest-star in "The End of Christmas".
* CurseCutShort: See AtomicFBomb above.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: "JURASSIC POKEMON", to aching extents.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Implied with this joke in "iPhone 5 Revealed:" "[[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} i have a cubone! i better marowak it...and after i beedrillin' i squirtle and i get drowzee]]"
** Also, the 1.5 Richter scale vibration on the new iPhone, prompting a woman to slyly slip it into her pants...
** Food Battle 2012 includes the challenge of jerking off with the pink frosted sprinkled donut (or egg roll) and in order to win the challenge the food has to survive.
---> '''Anthony:''' I've never done this outside before, but whatever! Hashtag YOLO!
* DeadAllAlong: ''[[spoiler:THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS]]''.
* DeathIsCheap: People die a lot. Most of them come back fine later. Lampshaded in ''Food Battle 2010''.
--> '''Ian:''' Oh, hey Anthony.
--> '''Anthony:''' Wait, I just came back from the dead, and you're not even surprised.
--> '''Ian:''' Not really, it's kinda becoming a yearly occurance.
** Fun fact: In 2011, Ian and Anthony died 46 and 31 times, respectively.
** At the end of 2012, this has been explained as actually being a bunch of clones. Anthony's died 31 times, Ian's 39.
* DeconstructiveParody: [[http://youtu.be/HO9s21ZdTUE BADASS NEW POWER RANGERS]].
* {{Defictionalization}}
** In-universe, in "5,000,000 Subscribers" where the guys claim that they shoot all their videos on a Hollywood soundstage made up to look like a regular house (with nipple-shaped flesh-tone throat mikes of the kind found in [[Literature/ArtemisFowl action and]] [[Literature/SigmaForce espionage novels]] plastered all over the walls and on their chests), and all their exterior scenes are done on green screen ([[SpecialEffectsFailure expect the outside of their house to look]] [[ConspicuousCG suspiciously digital.]])
** The bobbleheads from "My Bobblehead is Evil!" [[TheMerch are actually being sold on Smosh's website.]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: A deleted scene from ''Ian Gets Lucky'' lists reasons why Anthony and Ian shouldn't be getting allowances. They have big noses. In case you missed it the first time it was mentioned, it shows up in a bigger size down the list. It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded!]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: "Meat In Your Mouth" and "Dixon Cider." As if the lyrics to the songs weren't suggestive enough, the videos are full of over-the-top innuendo.
* DoubleEntendre: Lots of 'em. Food Battle 2012 has several examples, the most obvious of which is, "[[ItMakesSenseInContext I blew pork all over]] YourMom."
* DownerEnding: ''Stranded'', looking through the eyes of the man who is stranded.
-->"There's no chance of survival. There's nothing left to hold on to. I've lost all hope."
* DumbBlonde: Rachel, the hottie from "That's Hot!" Ten years later, she looks 34 and is still in high school.
* {{Emo}}: Anthony's hairstyle is very obviously this. Apparently, he used to have an afro (and a wardrobe that would make [[SavedByTheBell Screech Powers]] cringe), but it got burned off and the emo hair was a transplant.
* EmoTeen: Being one is the only way to survive HighSchool, according to what the Internet says in ''Four Years Foreplay''. HilarityEnsues when Ian's character shows up to school in dark clothing, guyliner, straightened hair, and (fake) facial piercings.
* {{Engrish}}: The birthday cake Ian got for Anthony (on his own birthday!) is written with this, because he bought it in Chinatown.
* EntendreFailure: During the Wandagra commercial in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MtBaFKa_F4 HARRY POTTER DELETED SCENES!]]''
-->'''Woman [[CrosscastRole (Anthony)]]''': Ever since he's been using Wandagra--well, his wand has been ''really'' stiff!
-->'''Ian''': And she's not referring to my penis.
-->'''Woman [[CrosscastRole (Anthony)]]''': ...Yes I am!
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Anthony.
** Also, played with by Freshman!Ian in "That's Hot!" He thought it was due to his leather shorts, but it was really because of the pizza-flavored Hot Pocket in his transparent fanny pack.
* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDaKZ6X1oxE&feature=plcp Addicted to Honey Boo Boo Child.]]
* EveryEpisodeEnding: "Mailtime with Smosh" episodes almost always end with one of them dying.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Ian's mom.
* EvilLaugh: Anthony's evil bobblehead.
** Anthony himself does one after [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBUW-jKfY7E he plots to destroy Christmas.]]
** Harley does one after [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwlawPBfVXI&list=UUY30JRSgfhYXA6i6xX1erWg he reveals his plans to make Christmas Day into Bacon Day]].
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: A lot of stuff, particularly the Metrosexual Hipster and "Meat In Your Mouth."
* ExplosiveStupidity: Anthony, with the exploding churro!
* EyeBeams: In quite a few videos.
** One of the first examples is ''Spiderman, Spiderman''.
-->'''Anthony as [[{{Spiderman}} Dr. Octopus]]''': Go, laser eyes.
-->'''Ian''': DR. OCTOPUS DOES NOT HAVE LASER- ''AGGGHHHH!''
** Also in the alternate ending for ''Breaking the Habit.''
--> [[spoiler: '''Anthony''': We're zombies now!]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Ian''': Zombies with laser eyes! * BOOM* ]]
* FlashStep: The Neighbour.
* FlippingTheBird: Max in "Hardcore Max 2" and Ian in "Food Battle 2009".
** Metrosexual Hipster flips the bird twice in "Pokemon in Real Life 3".
** The puppeteers do this [[RunningGag a lot]] in "The End of Christmas".
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In ''Food Battle 2011'', Ian darkly chuckles after Anthony suggests a duel with their two foods acting as guns. It seems slightly out of character and inappropriate for the moment, until we learn what he prepared for the duel....
* FreezeFrameBonus: In "My Stupid Dying Grandpa," as Ian is forced to kiss the face of Aunt Jemima to get rid of his fear, increasingly demonic-looking split-second shots of Aunt Jemima's face flash on screen.
* FriendshipMoment: ''Left-Handed''. "Friendship always wins!"
* FullNameBasis: "So, Harley from WebVideo/EpicMealTime fame..."
* GenericName: "Bob... Bob Jones..."
* GenderBender: In "Smosh Snatchers", two black girls who are envious of the duo's success decide to undergo plastic surgery to become and then kill them. It doesn't succeed when the Ian impostor mentions the duo's like of Music/SpiceGirls, which was apparently supposed to be kept secret between both of them. Also invoked in one video when Ian e mentions how much he would [[ManIFeelLikeAWoman just grope himself if he were a girl.]]
* GenerationXerox: Anthony disguises as his grandma in "Biggest Zit Ever," and the commercial director remarks on how much "she" looks like Anthony before hitting on her, forcing Anthony to [[BrokenMasquerade abandon the disguise.]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** In-universe; the music video ''Meat In Your Mouth'' consists entirely of this trope being invoked and exaggerated.
*** For the same reasons, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xg48eBUkDw Dixon Cider.]]" Subverted in the end [[DontExplainTheJoke where they pretty much give the whole gag away.]] No wonder Dixon Cider is suing them...
** Also the first ADateWithRosiePalms joke above, especially since it's a FreezeFrameBonus.
** The speedometer in the time machine in "The End of Christmas" only goes up to 69 mph.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Anthony wears SpongeBob boxers a lot, especially when he has to show his underwear on camera.
** Ian doesn't usually show underwear that much, but we ''do'' very often see a Union-Jack pattern on his belt.
* GrammarNazi: ''Grammar Police''.
* GratuitousGerman: The reason Ian doesn't help out Anthony in "Stuck In A Toilet!" is because he's busy learning German to [[NoodleIncident prepare for Nazi zombies...again]].
--> How about this phrase, you stupid American? I just pooped my lederhosen! ''Ich scheiße auf meine Lederhosen!''
* GratuitousSpanish: ''Anthony is Mexican''.
* GreenAesop: ''Amazing New Drink!''(which is tap water)
* GreenEyedMonster: Whenever Anthony has any form of success, Ian becomes extremely jealous and resorts to name-calling and screaming rants. ''Ex: Male Model, A Hairy Situation w/ Billy Mays, Anthony Poses for Playgirl?!'' and ''The Famous Cheese Guy.''
** Don't forget his jealousy-fueled rage in Food Battle 2008 due to Anthony winning the 2007 one.
* GroinAttack: Woe be onto you if you happen to be Anthony's genitals, which to date, has been [[spoiler: kicked, turned into gold, slammed between a car door and sliced off by adamantium claws!]]
** Ian gets this too sometimes, as alluded to in "That's Hot!" when his mom reminds him of the time he put his you-know-what in the microwave...
** And on Ian's bucket list, he wants to "kick each member of OneDirection in the taint."
** The ending of Boxman 2.0.
* HauntedHouse: Ian and Anthony learn that Anthony's house is haunted when they hear strange noises in the house. They soon learn the ghost is friendly, but there may be an unfriendly ghost when they heard a noise that wasn't the friendly ghost's doing.
** Actually, that was just Anthony [[ADateWithRosiePalms playing with himself.]]
* HeteroSexualLifePartners: Ian and Anthony come ''really'' close to this.
* HighSchool: Smosh and I Set My Friends On Fire sing about being a Freshman in ''Four Years Foreplay''.
** Their "True Story" cartoons and "That's Hot!" all depict events that are said to have happened to the guys in high school.
* HollywoodCalifornia: ''The California Stereotype Experiment''. "Ian is deadset on proving wrong the stereotype that everyone in California surfs or lives next to a movie star. Unfortunately for him and Anthony the stereotype... may be true."
* HomosexualReproduction: In Food Battle 2009, as a challenge, Anthony wears his burrito as a wig. It's so convincing that Teleporting Fat Guy believes he is a girl he knows and proposes to "her" on the spot, followed by pictures of their wedding, their honeymoon, and one of them with their 3 kids before accidentally knocking his wig off.
-->'''Teleporting Fat Guy''': Sherrie, I hope we'll be together for- [[UnsettlingGenderReveal OH MY GOD, YOU'RE A DUDE!]]
** In "I have a secret son" when two people hold each others right hand, the mommy gets pregnant and the baby pops out of the mommy's tummy. Which happened to Anthony when he held Stevie's right hand.
* IdiotHair: The infomercial salesman in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2M05Sa5aMo Runbrella commercial]] has one.
* IdiotHero: Anthony and Ian are shown as morons when they play themselves in their videos. Sometimes, however, one will be smarter than the other.
** In later seasons, Anthony is usually in the smarter of the two.
* IncrediblyLamePun:
** [[spoiler:At the end of "My Pet Pikachu," Pikachu turns out to be a bum who stole Anthony's costume, so he shanks the guys and leaves. Anthony yells, "Shanks for that!" Then the subtitle reads, "RIP Anthony and Ian: Dead By Horrible Puns."]]
** The CouchGag for "Dixon Cider" has Anthony ask, "You guys wanna hear a punny joke?" Which also foreshadows [[AccidentalInnuendo the whole point]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar of the video]].
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oi2jIyeTI3g SMOSH VS ZOMBIES]], Anthony says "Hey zombies, don't lose your ''head!''" before shooting at them and [[ATeamFiring missing all of them]].
* InformedAttractiveness: Many of the "girls" in the show, particularly because they're more often than not [[CrosscastRole very obviously played by one of the guys.]]
* InsaneTrollLogic: The therapist in "Most Violent Game Ever!" must [[AxCrazy kill Ian]] before ''he'' becomes violent! (Insert EvilLaugh here)
* ItRunsOnNonsenseoleum: Most Smosh vids, but the Food Battles take this UpToEleven (and even [[LampshadeHanging lampshade it]] in Food Battle 2012.)
* LiteralMetaphor: In We're Stuck Together!, the Boss seemingly reacts to Ian and Anthony fighting by saying "So hot." The Game Show host asks if the boss like four boobs too, only for the boss to show that he meant the Host's coffee, which has burnt his feet down to the bone.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction[=/=]MinorInjuryOverreaction: The boys can shrug off things like a gunshot wound and yet go into screaming hysteria over a paper cut.
* ManChild: Ian, [[RuleOfFunny depending on the episode]].
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Ian gets a cardboard cutout of [[{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku]], and starts... you know... so he can check it off his bucket list. Even worse, when Anthony fetches it for him, it's implied he's not the first guy to have done this to that particular cutout.
--> '''Anthony:''' [[{{Squick}} Eww, it's all sticky.]] You sure you still want it?
--> '''Ian:''' Yeah, sloppy seconds, man!
* ManlyTears: Ian in ''The Truth Behind My Playgirl Shoot'', when Anthony admits that the shoot was fake.
* MediumShiftGag: "A Smoshy Christmas" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H73cmY-JAIw Part 1]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnH-IbFCJ5M and Part 2,]] natch.
* MegatonPunch: In a video exclusive to Smosh.com, Anthony (playing Edward from the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series) buys blood from a dealer in a way similar to a drug deal. When he realizes it's fake blood, he Falcon Punches the dealer.
* MistakenForRacist: Anthony in ''I'M NOT RACIST!!!''.
* MoralDissonance: In the video "Toy Airplane." Anthony & Ian use a toy airplane that accidentally takes pictures of a murder. Then they spend the rest of the time trying to get the airplane back while doing '''NOTHING''' to bring the killer to justice.
** Ian's mom frequently allows her son to die (or kills him herself), and seems to prefer Anthony. Anthony makes plenty of "hot mom"-style jokes about her because of it. Even funnier is that she is actually his mom in real life, and the things they get her to do and say are more hilarious because of it.
* {{Mon}}: "Go, Anthonymon!" in ''Pokémon Theme.''
* MrFanservice: Anthony gets the most amount of {{shirtless scene}}s, wearing skimpy outfits and even crossdressing.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: The video officially introducing WebVideo/SmoshGames to the world has Anthony complaining about the generic-ness of their new channel name, but Ian thinks that same generic-ness makes it awesome.
* TheMusical: The 2-part 2013 Christmas special.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: In one video, Anthony's sister (played by Anthony) starts dating Ian, and Anthony's not too happy about that.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Frequently, accompanied with appropriate {{pixellation}}. Taken UpToEleven with "I'M NAKED!", even though [[spoiler:Ian's the only one in the buff.]]
* NerdsAreVirgins: Ian's high school yearbook photo in "Biggest Zit Ever" shows a complete and utter nerd, captioned "Most Likely To Remain a Virgin."
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The creator of Beef-n-Go is named [[LeeroyJenkins Roy Lee Jenkins.]]
** a "Creeed" song called "Anthony's Gone" is played in Anthony Is Mexican.
* NoIndoorVoice: "GOD DAMN IT EDITOR!!!!"
** [[spoiler:"GOD DAMN IT PREDATOR!!!!"]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler: Ian in "My Bobblehead is Evil".]]
* OnlySaneMan: Ian and Anthony could play tennis with this role, though Anthony tends to be this most of the time, especially at the end of the " If ___ was Real" videos.
** Subverted in ''HITCHHIKING DISASTER!''. Ian has to put up with Anthony having a funeral for his pet rock, locking the car, and leaving his keys, and throwing his only pair of car keys at ''a bear''. [[spoiler: Turns out, Ian left his door open.]]
* PapaBear: The little girl's dad in "My Stupid Dying Grandpa." When Ian steals her cookie, he starts whaling on him like nobody's business, complete with SpaghettiWestern background music.
* PaperThinDisguise: Anthony uses one to trick Ian into believing that he's the tooth fairy.
* ParodyName: Look closely at the screen on the iPhone in "My Mail Order Bride" and "iPhone 5 Revealed." You can see, in the upper left corner, "GAYT&T." Possibly a TakeThat.
* PepperSneeze: In "LONGEST STARING CONTEST", when Ian (and Anthony, still staring at one another) goes to his date's house, she ''just so happens'' to have some of her mom's fresh ground pepper, and then the inevitable occurs...
* PermaStubble: Ian can always be recognized by this. In Food Battle 2012, when he tries to use his donut as a fake ID, the store clerk doesn't bother checking it, because of this trope - he just lets Ian buy the beer anyway. (Conversely, the [[PerfectlyCromulentWord significantly-less-stubbular]] Anthony can't fake his way through the same way with just an egg roll.)
* PoliceBrutality: PlayedForLaughs, in which the 'police' usually resort to lethal force. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill By shooting the target continuously for five seconds]].
* PracticalJoke: The entirety of "[[spoiler:My Stupid Dying Grandpa]]" turns out to be a huge one orchestrated by Anthony, Ian's mom, and [[spoiler:Grandpa.]]
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDj6ySghJ3c A Very Hairy Situation]]
** '''Ian:''' I don't think you understand... ''(cocks gun)'' You don't [[SoundEffectBleep F*** ]]... '''WITH MY BEST FRIEND!!!'''
** [[spoiler: Happy Kwanzaa mother-f***er! ]]
* RatedMForManly: Anthony calls his diary a "man-journal."
** The "Taken 3" Trailer.
* RealAfterAll: [[spoiler: Bigfoot and zombies]]
** The tooth fairy.
* RealityEnsues: The premise of the "If X were real" videos.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Whenever Anthony's eyes turn red, it means he's brainwashed by something.
* RedScare: Ian being a [[CloudCuckooLander tad silly, as usual,]] mentions this briefly when Anthony announces their new [[http://www.smosh.com/smosh-pit Smosh Pit]] feature for the site.
* RedShirt: Billy in "JURASSIC POKEMON". [[spoiler:He happens to [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl scream like a little girl]], which annoys the hell out of Grant and Sattler to the point where they purposely leave him behind.]]
-->'''Ian''': I've been digging this hole for two weeks straight, for no reason whatsoever?! [...] You know what? I'm going to continue to dig this hole, and when I'm done, I'm turning it into a ''bomb shelter!'' And when the commies nuke us, guess who's not invited? YOU! ''And'' Jon Gosselin! * Digs*
* RunningGag: In their ''Food Battle'' videos, they always ''both'' fail the very first challenge.
** Also in their ''Food Battle'' videos, an announcer shows up at the end to tell the winner they just won and ask them what they're going to do now. When they reply, he'll ask if he can come, and they will often answer with an angry BigNo [[note]] though Anthony said "HELL YEAH" instead one time[[/note]].
** Throughout the blooper reel of the Zelda rap, the sword sheath keeps falling off on the first take of a scene.
** Anthony and Ian [[spoiler:die]] in most Mailtime with Smosh.
** Cletus screaming in terror at the end of the Neighbour videos.
** Ian frequently claims to be hurt in female reproductive parts.
** Part of their BaitAndSwitch humor is that they are frequently shown to appear to be doing something sexual, only for the camera angle to change and reveal that they are doing a mundane activity in an odd pose.
** "Paranormal Easy Bake Oven" gets in quite a few, mostly when [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed Ian and Anthony have to sleep in the same bed four nights in a row]]. Examples:
*** The guys going to sleep several hours earlier each night (until it's absurdly early, like 4:30pm early.)
*** Anthony wearing less clothes each night.
*** Ian building up a wall of pillows to stop Anthony touching him in his sleep (eventually Anthony [[ADateWithRosiePalms just starts touching himself]]).
**** Doesn't stop him [[BlanketTugOWar pulling the blanket over to his side of the bed, though.]]
** Ian always buy random items that gets him and Anthony killed(like the easy bake oven, or bot bestfriend).
* RuleOfThree: "If TV Shows Were Real" has Ian opening the window to kill three different sets of ladies with sunlight: [[TheVampireDiaries a lisping lady vampire,]] [[Series/TrueBlood two sexy vampires,]] and [[spoiler:the Kardashians.]] Overlaps with ArsonMurderAndJaywalking, because the last set didn't threaten him in any way. Many of their in-video running gags come in threes as well.
* SassyBlackWoman: The "Oh, ''hell'' no!" lady.
* SceneryCensor: A form of this in "Biggest Zit Ever:" Anthony holds a potted plant in front of his face to hide the zit.
* ScrewYourself:
-->'''Anthony's Girlfriend''': I have something to tell you.
-->'''Anthony''': What?
-->'''Anthony's Girlfriend (who suddenly turns into him)''': I AM you!
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Ian is often the sensitive guy and Anthony the manly man.
** To back this up, Ian seems to get insulted a bit more easily than Anthony, and has also cried for real on camera.
** Even in WebVideo/{{React}}, most prominently in Knife Game Song. You can clearly see Ian scared for the man playing the knife game, while Anthony gets excited, even shouting "Faster, faster!"
* SerialEscalation: "Sexting Gone Wrong" does this on a MASSIVE scale.
--> '''Ian:''' If you want someone to see you naked, do it in person. Practice safe sext.
* SeriousBusiness
** The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Grammar Police]] video. Grammar is serious business.
** And, of course, the Food Battles. It's easy to lose count of how many deaths those have caused over the years.
* ShaggyDogStory: "LONGEST STARING CONTEST"; after Ian and Anthony have a big staring contest for the last pizza roll, [[spoiler:they both end up blinking at the same time, decide to split the roll, and end up coming home to see that Stevie has already eaten it.]]
* ShirtlessScene: ''[[MrFanservice Anthony]] Gets Engaged''.
** Both the guys get this on occasion. PlayedForLaughs most of the time, especially when Ian wants to be a male model.
* ShoutOut:
** The [[{{PSY}} Gangnam Style]] dance is done in Food Battle 2012.
** Two in "My Pet Pikachu" - Ian's [[MyLittlePony pony shirt,]] and [[HomeAlone the Talkboy.]]
** "Dixon Cider" has Ian and Anthony both with [[Film/{{Borat}} strategically-placed long black censor bars.]]
* SleepCute: Face it. They're both adorable when they're asleep.
* SoapPunishment: Used in "If Cartoons Were Real". The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' parody has Stan's mouth being washed with soap.
* SoundEffectBleep
* SpitTake: Done by both boys with milk when they look at the sales of Ian's [[CouchGag SHUT! UP!]] Droid phone app in ''Ian Gets Lucky''...
** [[spoiler: Done [[RuleOfThree once more(!)]] when Anthony tries to take another sip of the milk. "Probably don't wanna drink that, I spit in that."]]
* SpoofAesop: ''Real Death Note'': "Books are dangerous. Play more video games."
* StatusQuoIsGod: Very good thing too, otherwise we'd be seeing not Ian and Anthony but their [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire extra-concentrated ghosts.]]
* StockScream: The "REAL WATCH DOGS HACKS!" video has the Wilhelm scream when Bad Guy #1 falls into the ball pit.
* StuffBlowingUp: "Holy Crap, 2 Billion Views!" has one that dominates almost the entire second half of the vid - the preparation for, and finally the actual act of, blowing up a commemorative cake baked by [[AceOfCakes Duff Goldman]] - in [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome glorious slow motion.]]
* StylisticSuck:
** One of the extras, ''Anthony's Own Video'', shows us that Anthony's really incompetent with making videos by himself [[spoiler: with Ian apparently being "dead" and all....]]
** Ian's mom's video in ''My Mom's AMAZING Video!".
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IrfOYp2Bn4 Driver's Ed Crap Rap]]," and HOW! Justified in that it's presented as a ten-year-old vid they had just dug up.
* SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion: ''{{Transformers}} Rap'' does this.
-->'''Ian''': The Transformers creators wouldn't pay us to make this rap\\
They told us that the script was full of NONSENSE!\\
[[DontExplainTheJoke I bet you thought I was gonna say "crap", cause it rhymes with "rap"]], but I'm better than that!
* SuperDrowningSkills: Poor Anthony. He's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdWCjUG2ffU&feature=channel_video_title immune]] to a lot of things (cobra venom, groin punches, peer pressure, [[BodyHorror flesh eating viruses]], rabies, and shark feces), but water is not one of them.
** Subverted in Food Battle 2010
* TagTeamSuicide: When Franchise/{{Batman}} and Robin try to make a video and become Website/YouTube stars, they demonstrate things you could do as a hero. In one part of the video, Batman tries to give an injection to a rabid dog, but apparently winds up killing himself with the needle. Robin sees this, and injects himself with the shot, saying "I'll be with you soon, my love." However, Batman was just pretending to die, and when he realizes Robin is really dead, he doesn't care. He's just happy he'll be an Internet celebrity!
* TakeThat: "First Person Shooters Suck!", against VideoGame/CallOfDuty (specifically ModernWarfare).
** In If Video Games Were Real, officer Anous shoots the DuckHunt dog.
*** The If... Were Real segments in general are just them showing what various forms of media would be like if they were actually realistic.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lFfF5XLsCQ Pokemon Theme Song Revenge]] is one big Take That against the Pokemon copyright having removed their original theme song parody video for copyright reasons.
** The guys really, Really don't like [[Series/JerseyShore Snooki]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRfOsl0nSnc Disney Star Wars]]
** From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4t6nGWh6_FA&list=UUY30JRSgfhYXA6i6xX1erWg&index=1 My Bobblehead is Evil!]]:
---> '''Anthony:''' Did you hear that?\\
'''Ian:''' Hear what?\\
'''Anthony:''' That creepy whisper that sounded like a demon voice from a cliched ScaryMovie?
** They've asked a [[SuperMarioBros Lakitu]] for a voodoo doll of {{Kesha}}.
** On the subject of [[MurderSimulators video games causing violence]] [[http://youtu.be/DNTzKHkxki8 here]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBUW-jKfY7E The End of Christmas]], an obvious Take That to Christmas, but during Anthony's segment, where he complains where his mom gets him sweaters and the wrong video game, the 'wrong video game' seen is DukeNukemForever.
* TemptingFate: Anthony just got to star in an acne-cream commercial (being specifically ordered to keep his skin clear too), and what is the first thing he does? PIZZA FACIAL!!!
** [[spoiler:Ultimately double-subverted. Anthony is fired not for getting a zit, but because the director wanted to ask him out when he [[AttractiveBentGender was disguised as his grandma,]] and he got mad at him for "cockblocking" him. And don't forget, the director has already been all but confirmed to be hot for Anthony.]]
** Almost everything Professor Oak says in "JURASSIC POKEMON" is this UpToEleven.
*** Dr. Sattler falls victim to it too.
-->'''Dr. Grant''': Are we safe in here?
-->'''Dr. Sattler''': Yes, unless they figure out how to open doors.
-->(doorbell)
-->'''Token Black Guy''': [[TooDumbToLive I'll get it!]]
** In "REAL WATCH DOGS HACKS ft. Rob Dyrdek"; when Bad Guy #1 falls into the foam pit, Anthony and Ian comment [[ThatsGottaHurt on how that could've hurt.]] Rob says that the cubes were made of foam and that he couldn't have been hurt. [[StuffBlowingUp Cue the pit exploding.]]
* ThatsWhatSheSaid
* TheProblemWithPenIsland: Altogether now: ''"PEN15!"''
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: "Taken 3 Trailer" has Ian (as a young Bryan Miller) wantonly whacking everyone's neck areas and shooting kneecaps. In some cases, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs he karate-chops the neck areas then shoots the kneecaps, several times.]]
* TheyKilledKenny: Peter
** Also both Ian and Anthony in their Mail Time with Smosh videos, Food Battles and some others. Frequently lampshaded in Food Battle.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: ''Left-Handed''.
-->'''Ian''': [[spoiler: You just used your right hand! You owe me twenty bucks, bitch!]]
** The end of Stranded:
--> CRACK IS WHACK. BITCH.
** Ian's First Girlfriend.
-->Cockadoodle doo. BITCH!
** Sexist burger (Lunchtime With Smosh)
-->"Bye!" "Bye!" "Bye?" "Bye." "Bye. . . bitch."
** Siri (after she stopped trying to [[{{Yandere}} kill Ian]]): Ouch. That hurt, bitch.
** How [[EveryEpisodeEnding every "Lunchtime with Smosh" video ends]].
* TokenBlack: One of the characters in "JURASSIC POKEMON" is called [[GenreSavvy the Token Black Guy]].
* TooDumbToLive: Pretty much everyone in "JURASSIC POKEMON". When one of the Pokemon bangs on the door, someone '''''actually goes to open it'''''. [[BlackDudeDiesFirst And it had to be the black one, too!]]
* TotallyRadical
** Anthony's dad in "Badass New Power Rangers."
---> It's {{Skrillex}}, [[PrecisionFStrike you f**king moron!]]
** Also, the therapist in "Most Violent Game Ever!" keeps saying "big frickin' dealio." A lot.
* TwistEnding
** "Real Ghostbusters" is not only a parody of {{Ghostbusters}} but also of [[spoiler:TheSixthSense]]. After you figure that out, everything makes sense...[[MindScrew sort of]].
** "My Bobblehead is Evil:" [[spoiler:Ian has an evil bobblehead, too!]]
** "Smosh vs Zombies" ends with [[spoiler:Ian and Anthony realizing that they could be best friends forever if they become zombies, so they willingly get infected. The video ends to them gleefully butchering survivors while [[SoundtrackDissonance cheerful music plays]].]]
* UltraSuperDeathGoreFestChainsawer3000:
** ''[[YourHeadAsplode Super Head Esploder 5]]'' in ''Anthony is Mexican''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNTzKHkxki8 Most Violent Game Ever]]: Super Head Esploder X, which now allows you to use your iPad's photos to make the heads you get to esplode.
---> '''Ian:''' Super Head Esploder X! It's no big dealio, but if you don't download it, you too will become an axe murderer. ''Probably.''
* UnusualEuphemism: In the ''[[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mighty Smoshin' POWER RANGERS]]'' video, a man stealing a kid's candy says to Ian and Anthony (who try to stop him) "Screw off, cheesefarts."
** In ''2 Guys 1 Bathroom'', Ian thinks "If he sees me going to the stall, he's going to think I'm insecure and have a small tallywhacker. Wait... why'd I just call it a tallywhacker?" Then later in the video, as someone is waiting on Ian or Anthony to get done using the urinal, he exclaims: "Fine! I'll just use the stall! And I don't have a small tallywhacker!"
** From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYkbbMA3ozQ&list=UUY30JRSgfhYXA6i6xX1erWg&index=1&feature=plcp Dubstep Commercials Suck,]] we have this gem of a line: "Sweet Sacajawea, that's highly irregular!"
** Also..."I'm draining my sausage!" from Anthony. (Ian says almost the same thing, substituting Five-Dollar Footlong.)
* VitriolicBestBuds: If Anthony and Ian are portraying themselves, they're often an exaggerated Type 2; despite being best friends, they don't seem to give a damn about anything that happens to each other, even if the other one is outright killed. In fact, 90% of the time one of them dies, the other one is directly responsible for it.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Claymation Ian in "A Smoshy Christmas, Part 2". ''[[RunningGag Repeatedly.]]''
--> '''Anthony:''' Technically, we're driving on the ocean.\\
'''Ian:''' Ugh! (projectile-vomits onto the Arctic ice cap) You know I get seasick!
** In "The End of Christmas Pt 1", Puppet Anthony vomits out a stream of Jack Daniels.
* WardrobeMalfunction: Deleted scenes from "Stuck In A Toilet!" reveal that Anthony wore briefs under his Spongebob [[GoofyPrintUnderwear boxers]] to prevent this.
* WeAllLiveInAmerica: A lot of the stuff on Smosh Pit doesn't make any sense for non-americans
* WhatBeautifulEyes: Ian. A lot of their Youtube comments are about this. Anthony even acknowledges this in a Lunchtime With Smosh video where he says Ian has "cool eyes" while he has [[BrownEyes "poop eyes"]].
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Aunt Jemima?]]: According to "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqgiA33zfoo My Stupid Dying Grandpa]]," Ian is terrified of Aunt Jemima. Not the syrup, but Aunt Jemima herself. The eyes just stare into his soul.
* {{Yandere}}: Siri, for Anthony in SIRI TRIED TO KILL ME!
** Makes it very odd when the CouchGag for "iPhone 5 Revealed" has Anthony ask Siri if she'll be his girlfriend, and she says no. [[FridgeLogic Got reset, perhaps?]]
* YaoiFangirl: Not surprisingly some of their fans. It's extremely hilarious to see Ian and Anthony's reactions when they are sent slash fanfiction of themselves.
* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: "When I drowned in Food Battle 2006, I learned how to survive underwater - ''by holding my breath!"''
* YourMom: More specifically Ian's mom.
** Subverted once - Ian's mom really was in the catalog.
