[[caption-width-right:302:[[Franchise/GIJoe ANGRY JOE! ANGRY JOE IS THERE!]]]]

A gamer who lives on a spaceship, possesses an off-the-wall reviewing style and a ''mite'' too much energy, "Angry" Joe Vargas got his start by submitting a video review for ''ArmyOfTwo'' giving constructive criticism that was surprisingly what the developers really wanted to hear. Angry Joe now does reviews and other videos on his own [[http://www.AngryJoeShow.com website]] and is a major contributor for Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.

Back in November 2010, he and the other video games segments of TGWTG were spun off onto their own separate website, [[http://www.blisteredthumbs.net Blistered Thumbs]], with Joe as the site's executive leader. Now, however, he has left Blistered Thumbs to focus on managing his own site located [[http://angryjoeshow.com/ here.]] In addition, he is a member of [[{{Creator/Polaris}} Polaris]].

----
!!Provides Examples Of:

* {{Adorkable}}: Just watch his gushing fanboy review of ''Film/ManOfSteel''.
* AngryFistShake:
** "''Damn you, Chick-Fil-A!''"
** And again in his VideoGame/DragonsDogma review, after the game somehow transports his friend, who had been taking a shower at the time and is thus naked, into his living room.
** With both hands when parodying the fan reaction to ''DMC Devil May Cry''.
* AtomicFBomb: Near the end of his review for ''{{Mindjack}}''.
** One of particular note is his Iron Man 2 review... which only bleeps out the middle third.
** [[CurseCutShort Cut Short]]: His video on the forthcoming 3D re-release of the ''StarWars'' films begins with one.
* AuthorAppeal: For some unfathomable reason, and very unlike what you'd expect of him, Joe '''''loves''''' [[RhythmGame dancing games]].
-->'''Joe:''' What's that!? You think this is a game? This isn't a game! It's the way of life!
* BadassMustache: Pointed out in his ''FinalFight'' review: Mike Haggar has a Badass Mustache, and so does he.
** He does not like it when people make fun of it (See BerserkButton below)
** In "Hotel Awesome Season 2, Episode 4" we see that his mustache is so badass that if someone else tries to tear it off, he can magically grow a new one. It seems it's now made of [[{{Wolverine}} Adamantium]].
** Now it's turned into a BadassBeard.
* BadBadActing: Other Joe isn't really an actor, and doesn't try to be. It's pretty funny seeing him in contrast to the LargeHam of Angry Joe.
* BerserkButton:
** Try to make Joe watch a movie in 3D. What sets Joe off about 3D is the [[MoneyDearBoy surcharge added on to the price of a movie ticket]] as well as its improper implementation (e.g. colors are too dark, motion effects that are too fast, etc.).
*** However, he will praise 3D visuals when they are executed well, such as the slow motion effects in ''Film/{{Dredd}}''.
** [[invoked]] Or you can try to make him play any full-price game that can be beaten in under 12 hours.
--->'''Joe:''' [[ItsShortSoItSucks "FOUR HOURS?????"]]
** ''SONIC FREE RIDERS!'' The entire review is one giant tangent about how horrible it is.
** ''{{Mindjack}}'' sure as hell came close to outsuckying ''SFR'' for him, and while ''SFR'' could be given a pass for being a bad implementation of new technology, ''Mindjack'' is in a firmly established genre, which has no excuse.
** ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}: [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames Sanctum of Slime]]'' made Joe so unbelievably mad that, instead of just doing a review, he first did a Let's Play to show just how bad the game is THEN did an angry review.
** ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]'''s existence led Joe to do an Angry Rant that tore apart the lack of new features and price tag. He didn't even bother with a review.
** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' and its ending. So bad, that Joe had to write a separate video, detailing the main reasons why he thinks it sucks so bad; and to further hammer in his distaste for the ending, the video was very clearly Joe Vargas speaking & not the Angry Joe persona.[[note]]He admits though that the rest of the series, and 90% of ME 3 is still damned good[[/note]] Also, keep in mind that he highly praised the extended cut for pretty much solving most of the complaints everyone had, stating that it seems like the developers really took the time to listen to the fans and give them what they wanted.
** In his ''''Comic Jumper'''' review, do ''not'' make fun of his mustache or else you're in a beatdown, as Bizarro Joe learned the hard way.
** Joe himself has specifically stated that he despises Capcom's DLC practices, and the increasingly common codes required for online play.
*** On-Disc DLC in general...and bad DLC. See below for one game he ALSO complains about having it.
** {{Kinect}} games, particularly those that require the player to lean.
*** However, he gives a pass to ''VideoGame/DanceCentral'', even giving it the "Badass Seal of Approval".
** Evil Superman's "[[SupermanII Kneel before me]]", victory pose. So far its the only thing Joe dislikes about ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs''.
** He's never liked online passes and despises things that prevent used games from being played/sold easily, so he completely blew his stack when he heard that the XboxOne charged a fee for disc-sharing. Although he's calmed down about it now since it's been confirmed that there is no fee for disc-sharing.
** ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution'' infuriates Joe for being utterly terrible not because of glitches or bugs or being incomplete, but for simply being ''bad'', with a boring story, lackluster voice acting, shoddy sound production, low-res textures, practically nonexistent enemy AI, uninspired quick time events, and very disturbing sex scenes (in addition to being poorly animated, many occur ''immediately'' after saving the girl from danger).
-->'''Angry Joe:''' This thing has nothing to offer ''ANYONE!''
** As of Total War: Rome II, we can add overly-streamlining a game to the detriment of strategic play, especially when it involves removing features.
** [[Comicbook/{{Warrior}} Nobody]] [[TheSpoonyExperiment rapes Santa]] [[AtopTheFourthWall on his watch.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQfHdasuWtI His rant about the copyright marks against his most successful videos]]. He also states that if his next review is flagged by another copyright claim, he'll show Youtube how angry he can really be
** ''Rambo: The Video Game''. Joe hates, ''hates'' this game for representing everything wrong with liscensed games, it's horrid, outdated gameplay, it's game-crashing bugs, and the [[FakeDifficulty final level]], and the only reason why he only rated it a 2/10 instead of a 1 was because it made him laugh at how bad it was, although he questions if it was good for his health, as evidenced by his degrading mental state playing the game.
--> Angry Joe: Rambo: The Video Game has NO reason to exist! '''NONE! WHATSOEVER!'''
** To a certain extent, entries previously multiplatform franchises becoming exclusive to one system. He nearly posted a rant on ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'' being exclusive to the Wii U at a time when he had no interest whatsoever in owning a Nintendo console, but backed off on actually posting it on discovering that there wouldn't have '''been''' a ''Bayonetta 2'' without Nintendo's involvement. When ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheTombRaider'' was announced as an Xbox One exclusive however, this time Joe didn't hold back.
** ''VideoGame/{{Fable III}}'' Got Joe so mad at it's dissapointment he listed ''32 reasons'' why he hates it and thinks it sucks. He never even bothered to give it a review.
* BigBad: Corporate Commander.
** BiggerBad / TheManBehindTheMan: The Overlord.
** BigBadWannabe: Demon Joe
* BigNo:
** In his ''[[http://angryjoeshow.com/2010/07/ufo-et-review/ UFO: Extraterrestrials review]]''. Complete with slow motion.
** After losing VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 against WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.
*** Followed by a BigYes from Joe and a BigNo from The Critic when he beat him with his new controller/coffee table.
** His reaction to realizing that he's been set up in ''SuburbanKnights'' starts out as a RapidFireNo that culminates into a big one.
-->Joe: "'''NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! Nooo! Nooo! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!'''"
** Realizing it's Sunday, so Chick-Fil-A is closed.
** He lets out the Darth Vader one when seeing the dance mode in Kinect Star Wars. It even blows up Admiral Ackbar's ship.
** He gave out such a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMCS-xOW7ic huge]] one in his [[BloodBowl Blood Bowl]] match against {{Crendor}} when he rolled 3 Attacker Downs that Crendor gave him the Broken Microphone Award.
** His reaction to ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'' being a WiiU exclusive.
* BigWordShout: "GOOOOOOOOOOOO!" in TheStinger.
* BleepDammit: FU**********UCK
* BoisterousBruiser: Especially in crossovers with other TGWTG contributors.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Joe may be hammy, crazy, and more energetic than a room full of five-year-olds, but he's great at analyzing games and movies and providing insightful criticism.
* ButtMonkey: Other Joe.
** Angry Joe can be this, too, when with the other TGWTG reviewers.
* TheCameo: He's the only person who can give [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] a run for his money in terms of appearing in other people's videos.
** In his ''Anime/DragonBallZ: Kinect'' review, Creator/{{Lanipator}} makes a special (voice) appearance as [[WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged Vegeta]].
* CannotTellFictionFromReality: Joe plays so much ''Skyrim'', he thinks he's a knight, and attacks Corporate Commander... with a broom and a helmet made of foil.
* CaptainErsatz: As yet another ''obvious'' ([[TropesAreNotBad but welcomed]]) ShoutOut to ''GIJoe'', Corporate Commander is basically Cobra Commander if he was a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
** The "new" series has The Overlord (essentially [[InspectorGadget Doctor Claw]] with a teddy bear instead of the Mad Cat) as Corporate Commander's superior.
* CaptionHumor: Sometimes employed on the right-side caption.
** The caption guy is his own character who likes to make stabs at Joe whenever he can.
* CasanovaWannabe: In one of the 1-year anniversary crossover videos, he goes around delivering horrendous pick-up lines to all the women on the site.
* CatchPhrase:
** "You done ''fucked it up!''" -- Whenever he reviews a bad game that he'd been looking forward to.
* CausticCritic: Despite the name, he's usually pretty nice. Nowhere did this become more apparent than when he teamed up with Spoony at E3 2010, where the two practically became a GoodCopBadCop comedy duo. When Joe ''does'' lose his temper, it's usually over something most people would be frustrated about, and he manages to get control of himself quite quickly. He even always takes the time to point out things he likes in games he ''doesn't'' like, and makes the reviews funny whether or not he makes fun of the game.
* ChewingTheScenery: [[http://www.blisteredthumbs.net/2011/11/swtor-darth-joe-vs-spoonywan/#-1 '''UNLIMITED POWAAAAAH!!!''']]
** Joe LOVES to go over the top, but the best is his [[EvilIsHammy Demon Joe]] persona, which is put through a voice filter to make it extra demonic.
* ChristmasEpisode: The "completely unplanned, impromptu Angry Joe Christmas review special" for 2013.
-->'''Joe:''' Hey, kids! Are any of you getting iPads for Christmas?
-->''(kids cheering)''
-->'''Joe:''' Well, if you do, don't buy ''Star Trek: Trexels,'' because it'll '''RUIN YOUR FUCKING CHRISTMAS!!'''
-->''(kids gasping in shock)''
* ClusterFBomb: Weaponized as the cuss cannon.
** [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony's]] guest appearances during the ''AliensColonialMarines'' review largely consisted of him yelling "Bullshit!"
* ColdOpen: Often gives his opinion of the game in a succinct, often silly, manner. Other times they just have something funny to say abut the game.
* ComicalOverreacting: Part of him being angry.
* {{Cosplay}}: Joe sure likes to dress up whenever a game might call for it (even as a [[VideoGame/TotalWar geisha]]...).
* DashingHispanic: In his review for ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'', he plays Ezio Auditore (an Italian) as a DashingHispanic.
--> '''Ezio Joe''': [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign Allo]]. [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya My name is Amigo Toyota]]. YouKilledMyFather''rr'', my mothe''rrr'', my brothe''rrr'', [[UpToEleven my rrroommate]] ... PrepareToDie. (''MusicalisInterruptus'') What the ''hh''ell is ''hh''appening? (''BlindedByTheLight'') [[GratuitousSpanish Caramba cuņo]]! My eyes! Ah carajo!
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: Or rather the heavy handed enforcement of persecuting free use is evil. Joe had been targeted for using copyright material ''in a review,'' leading to many of his videos being taken down.
* DistractedByTheSexy: His initial reaction to ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', getting himself some [[ADateWithRosiePalms "Private Time"]] near the end.
** When Lisa Foiles complains about the ''IronMan 2'' video game, and gradually loses clothing as she gets angrier, Joe forgets that he was supposed to be reviewing the game becomes fixated on Lisa, even remarking "I think I'm in love!"
* TheDitz[=/=]{{Malaproper}}: While he's not excessively dim, Joe's limited vernacular is treated as a running joke by his peers on the Channel Awesome podcast.
-->'''Joe''': I'm going home! Oh, I am home... Well, I'm gonna play my (board) game!
-->'''Computer''': By ''yourself'', Joe? LOL!
* DrugsAreBad: And so is chewing Cat Butt Gum. "It will ''take over your life!''"
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Crazy Men Who Live In Space Stations Have Standards]]: While making it clear that he doesn't agree with [[WebVideo/FeministFrequency Anita Sarkeesian]] on a number of things that she says, he delivered a ''scathing'' ReasonYouSuckSpeech to male gamers in general, and elements of his own fanbase in particular, over the horrific treatment she had recieved in 2013.
* EvilCounterpart[=/=]DemonicPossession: [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Darkspawn]] Joe
* EvilIsHammy: Darkspawn Joe hams it up even more than Angry Joe does.
* EvilLaugh: He has one after he ropes Jo into joining him in suffering through his review of the Thor video game.
* FanDisservice: Joe's large male friend Jacob wears a Wonder Woman costume in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1egeuoYBOU first injustice vlog.]]
** He appeared earlier in the {{VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw}} review, dressed as a cheerleader.
* FollowTheLeader: His style obviously shows some inspiration from WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd. This was parodied in the [[WebVideo/TGWTGYearOneBrawl first]] ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses'' anniversary crossover in which Joe gushes about meeting his chief inspiration and idol...only for it to turn out to be {{Benzaie}}'s sidekick Beary.
** Ironically, you rarely see Angry Joe actually being angry. Even when he [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/bt/aj/ajsreview/21481-iron-man-2-the-video-game did]], it's not nearly as angry as AVGN; a more appropriate nickname for him might be "Crazy Joe," because most often he's grinning like a maniac. Sometimes even when he ''is'' showing displeasure.
*** His first review of ''Film/TheLastAirbender'' had genuine anger, but he forgot to turn on the mic.
*** He certainly didn't make that mistake in his review of [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic Free Riders]]...let's just say that, apparently, the entire game is his BerserkButton.
* FoodAsBribe: He tricks Other Joe into playing the Thor movie game by luring him with the promise of pizza.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: You can usually tell how he's going to rate a game in the first 20 seconds of his review. Though, the fun is in him entertaining you while he [[EdutainmentShow educates the viewer about the game.]]
* FourPointScale: Averted, and he's basically stated in [[http://angryjoeshow.com/2011/08/game-reviewing/ this video]] that it's a PetPeeveTrope of his. Instead he uses just about every number on his 1-10 scale and always qualifies it. 5 is flat average, 3 (like Risen) has nice points but is not worth recommending and so on.
** And while 7 would be a weak score on that scale, Joe considered that the best score he could give ''DanceCentral'', even though he thought the game was still awesome, and named it one of his top games of the year.
*** Although, 7 would still be considered good, as he said ''TwoWorlds II'' was a 'great' game, yet gave it a 7. ''TheGunstringer'' got a 7, yet he said it was a must buy for {{Kinect}} owners. 7 would be considered highly above average.
** Similarly, he gave ''AsurasWrath'' as 6 out 10, but gave it his Badass Seal of Approval because he was in sheer awe of the game the whole time playing.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: His subtitle monitor asks this in the ''Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters'' review.
* GilliganCut: After vowing to take down Chick-Fil-A unless they start opening on Sundays, he's shown on Monday enjoying one of their chicken sandwiches instead.
* GreekChorus: The background screen in Joe's new base of operations on his show. Sometimes it seems to have a personality, such as in the review of ''Risen,'' where it wakes him up after sleeping standing up.
* HellbentForLeather
* HeroicBSOD: Inflicted on Joe by ''Sonic Free Riders''.
** And even more so in his review of ''Mindjack'', StephenHawking style.
** Defied in his ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution'' review where he battles Demon Joe in the centre of the mind but he's definitely exhausted afterwards.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: During the Nostalgia Critic's review of ManOfSteel, it's shown Joe went through this involving [[NoodleImplements lobster costumes and nipple tasers]]
* HomageShot: To the printer smashing sequence in ''OfficeSpace'' during his VideoGame/FableIII [[http://youtu.be/oSaw85bliyQ?t=17m25s video]].
* HongKongDub: Parodied in his ''FruitNinja Kinect'' review.
* HotBlooded: Joe's blood is on ''fire''. Fortunately, he's not totally kneejerk and will usually justify his reactions to things. Sometimes, his passionate style backfires on him (see CreatorBacklash or InternetBackdraft) but he hits more often than he misses. Even if you disagree with his opinions, odds are good that you'll still be entertained by his reviews.
* HostileShowTakeover: For the 2011 April Fool's video, Corporate Commander briefly commandeers the Resistance Base and attempts to provide a "professional, coolheaded counterbalance" to Joe. [[HypocriticalHumor To say he fails]] ''[[LargeHam is]] [[ChewingTheScenery an]] [[NoIndoorVoice understatement]]''.
* InternetBackdraft: {{Parodied}} InUniverse about the reaction to ''[[VideoGame/DevilMayCry DMC Devil May Cry]]''. Joe started playing it, and it turned into a video of "Bewitched" by Music/BloodOnTheDanceFloor.
-->'''Joe:''' No, no! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? YOU ''BASTARDS''! YOU KILLED IT! YOU '''KILLED IT'''!
* ItsShortSoItSucks: [[{{In-Universe}} A common complaint.]]
** '''Four! Hours!'''
* JumpCut: Done so often it's practically a SignatureStyle.
* {{Keet}}: The real life Joe has a ''hell'' of a lot of energy.
* LampshadedDoubleEntendre: Parodied in the ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife''.
* LargeHam: Particularly bombastic; makes some of the others look like [[DeadpanSnarker Deadpan Snarkers]] in comparison.
** Particularly in his ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' review, where he hams up both Abomination Joe ''and'' Warden Joe - especially after Warden Joe slays the Abomination.
** Hell, he could give {{BRIAN BLESSED}} a run for his money. This is ''barely'' hyperbole: just look at the opening to his ''UFO: Extraterrestrials'' review where he gives a slow-mo BigNo followed by a stentorian "I WILL AVENGE YOU ALLLLLLLLLL!"
* LaughablyEvil: Corporate Commander is actually quite amusing whenever he shows up.
* LaResistance: The Angry Joe Army.
* LickingTheBlade: Parodied by licking melon juice.
* LimitedWardrobe: His characters tend to wear just one outfit. Joe himself almost always wears the same black ''[[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Superboy]]'' t-shirt, with exceptions for certain reviews.
** He wore a hoodie and jacket over it to {{cosplay}} as Alex Mercer during his ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' review; this [[HilariousInHindsight seemed more bizarre]] when [[http://comicsmedia.ign.com/comics/image/article/113/1130517/superman-earth-one-20101026115150707.jpg a JMS-written Superman Graphic Novel featured the Man of Steel bearing more than a passing resemblance to Alex Mercer]].
** In his "Disney Buys AngryJoeShow" video he took off his black Superboy shirt (to replace it with a Captain America shirt), revealing that his undershirt was... a black Superboy shirt.
* MadnessMantra: Part of his ''{{Rambo}}: The Video Game'' review featured him playing the game and being subjected to soldiers yelling "Come on, comrades! He's a man, not a god!" [[WelcomeToCorneria over and over]] until he just started chanting it on his own.
* {{Meganekko}}: In his 'VideoGame/HarryPotter'' reviews.
* MickeyMousing: He engages in it (complete [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles with sparkles]] later on) in his video announcing that Maker Studios (the network behind Polaris, and therefore his employer) were bought by Creator/{{Disney}}.
* MovieSuperheroesWearBlack: He points out this at the end of his ''GIJoe'' review, while he's playing with his action figures.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Says this at the end of his movie review of ''TheLastAirbender'', realizing that by repeatedly saying just how bad this movie is, [[SchmuckBait people are going to want to see it]] [[BileFascination just to see how bad it really is.]] He repeatedly tells them to seriously not waste their money, but knows people are going to go see it anyway.
* MsFanservice: [[http://www.lisafoiles.com/ Lisa Foiles]] of ''Series/AllThat'' as the BridgeBunny of the New Angry Joe Show.
* NeverTrustATrailer: He frequently points out discrepancies between pre-released materials and the movie/game he's reviewing.
** Or on the case of ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', it's a trailer being better than the movie.
--->'''Joe''': It's the best part of the movie, and it ''isn't even in the actual movie''!
* NiceGuy: Underneath the bluster, he's a very sweet guy.
** BewareTheNiceOnes: However, Joe tore an internet troll [[https://twitter.com/AngryJoeShow/status/429659259903569920/photo/1 a new one]] when said troll tried to discredit his memorial to the late [[WebVideo/YouCanPlayThis JewWario]].
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Joe delivers one on Corporate Commander for a solid 15 seconds upon the announcement of ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]''.
* NonSequitur: Bizarro Joe gives one to Judge Joe in the cold open for the ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' movie review.
-->'''Judge Joe:''' [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking For inciting chaos in Mega City One, for impersonating a reviewer, for misleading the audience, and for 32 unpaid parking tickets]], how do you plead?
-->'''Bizarro Joe:''' Uh, I...I like turtles.
-->'''Judge Joe:''' I knew you'd say that. ''({{beat}})'' Actually...I actually didn't know you would say that. Interesting. ''(charges his Lawgiver pistol)''
-->'''Bizarro Joe:''' Wait, Judge...NOOOOO!!! ''(Judge Joe proceeds to shoot him dead in slow motion)''
-->'''Judge Joe:''' Court's adjourned, creep!
* NonindicativeName: He really isn't that angry at all, and has actually said that he hates giving negative reviews. If anything he's Vitriolically Enthusiastic Joe.
* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Quoted verbatim in his ''Sonic Free Riders'' review.
* OnceAnEpisode: "I'll see you guys on the next Angry Joe Show!"
* OneSteveLimit: Averted: One of his real-life friends is also named Joe. Other Joe helps out with [=LPs=] and is a background character in some video reviews.
* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: According to WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's ItsAWonderfulPlot ChristmasSpecial, had the Nostalgia Critic never existed, Angry Joe would've become a power president of the USA, who has people publicly executed and blows up Canada. And the people love him for it. (Although the public execution was for Tom Green and that Canada was, according to him, [[TheEmpire an evil empire]] in this alternate reality. [[WildMassGuessing Possibly ruled by Sea Horses.]])
* OverlyLongGag: During his ''Anime/DragonBallZ: Kinect'' review's intro, he spends a considerable amount of time charging up his {{battle aura}} while [[ScreamingWarrior screaming at the top of his lungs]]... Which is [[AffectionateParody extremely appropriate and in-line]] with the (in)famous pacing and edition style used in the animated series. [[note]]For example, compare it to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYDohBeP72M Goku's first transformation in Super Saiyan 3]][[/note]]
* PraisingShowsYouDontWatch: [[invoked]]A variation. In his review of ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', he said he hadn't watched ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', but insisted it couldn't be as bad as the movie, considering the fanbase and adoration for it.
-->"There is ''no way'' the cartoon is this bad! There is no way a series this popular can be like this!"
** He soon had it recommended by his fans. [[http://twitter.com/AngryJoeShow/status/18722927242 He approves of the show]].
* PrecisionFStrike: "Fuck 3-D!"
** "You done '''FUCKED''' it up!"
* PreviouslyOn: How his Green Lantern review starts, reminding us how much he was ''NOT'' looking forward to it.
* RealMenWearPink: Real men profess their love of dancing games and cross-dress as a geisha or a little girl when the video demands (excuses) it! And don a pink tutu and boa (plus a military helmet) for an interpretive dance about ''Battlefield 3''!
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Delivered a long and blistering one to his fans who viciously attacked Anita Sarkeesian in his "Top 10 Gaming Controversies of 2013" video.
* {{Retool}}: The show retooled itself sometime after ''{{Kickassia}}'', and is easily the best produced show on ChannelAwesome, as far as visuals and backdrops go.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: How Joe feels about Desmond Miles from ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''.
--> '''Desmond Joe''': Hi, my name is Desmond Miles. I have a fanny pack.
** He even has Ezio assassinate Desmond.
*** And [[Videogame/{{Hitman}} Agent 47]].
* TheRival: Corporate Commander.
* RunningGag: '''[[ItsShortSoItSucks FOUR HOURS!]]'''
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: When Joe gets carjacked in his ''Videogame/{{GrandTheftAutoV}}'' review.
* SkywardScream: During his Chick-Fil-A video when he realizes they're closed on Sundays.
* SelfDeprecation: During his review of ''VideoGame/{{Homefront}}'', while [[StopBeingStereotypical Joe complains]] about the [[EverythingIsBigInTexas obnoxious loudmouthed Texan]] with the oversize belt-buckle who "loses his shit".
-->'''Joe''': [[{{Beat}} ...]] oh wait, that is kinda' what we do.
* SeriousBusiness: "''Sonic Free Riders'' has ruined my life. That's it. This is the ''[[Horrible/VideoGames worst game]]'' [[Horrible/VideoGames I have ever played]]! Nothing in my life is the same anymore! [[SuckinessIsPainful Music doesn't sound the same.]] ''[[SuckinessIsPainful Food]]'', [[SuckinessIsPainful food doesn't taste like anything anymore!]]"
* ShooOutTheClowns: During his "Top Ten Gaming Controversies of 2013," Joe stops his funny jabs and rants on the perpetrators behind the controversies to a give a serious 10+ minute long TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to those (especially his fanbase in particular) who harassed Anita Sarkeesian, criticizing them for sending rape and death threats to her for her opinions. Joe said he didn't agree with her opinions, but that didn't mean she deserved threats at all. He goes right back to his joking attitude right after, causing quite a bit of MoodWhiplash.
* ShownTheirWork: Joe does plenty of background research for his reviews, especially for games that are part of an existing franchise. For instance, being able to provide examples of ''The Darkness''[='=] SuperWeight despite being an obscure IP, and researching ''AceCombat'' enough to warn fans that ''[[AceCombatAssaultHorizon Assault Horizon]]'' was not a 'true' installment of the main series, despite earlier admitting he hadn't actually played any of the previous games before his review.
* ShoutOut: Angry Joe makes several "[[Film/BatmanAndRobin Bat Credit Card]]" jokes in his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1egeuoYBOU first injustice vlog,]] just like WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.
* SigningOffCatchPhrase: "I'll see you guys on the next Angry Joe Show."
* SilentSnarker: The Monitor. It tend to snark at or make fun of either Joe and his over-the-top, enthusiastic behaviour behind his back or at the bad game he's reviewing.
* SincerityMode: His review on why the ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' endings suck has him review it in a [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness quiet and understated]] manner.
* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]] Joe and his brothers' opinion of the ''Series/ManVsWild'' game - a frustrating waste of time as a game, but hilarious when exploring how bugged and broken it is.
* DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible: Joe reviews many bad games, but this trope is his view on ''SonicFreeRiders'', ''{{Mindjack}}'', and ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution''.
* SoundEffectBleep: Sometimes when Joe swears, it's bleeped out, and sometimes, it's not, seemingly at random. There's no real reason for this other than Joe being silly. Often the bleeps aren't synchronised with the words they're meant to be bleeping, for the same reason. He claims he does this just to see if anyone points it out. That's it.
** Hilariously, [[http://angryjoeshow.com/2010/05/iron-man-2-review/ his Iron Man 2 review]] has him dropping an AtomicFBomb, bleeping out only the middle third of it.
* SpaceStation: The Resistance Base.
* TheStinger: Directing people to his website, for those who watch his videos elsewhere.
* StunnedSilence:
** His review of ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' begins with him staring blankly into the camera for about a minute, swaying slightly before falling over. Yes, he likes the game.
** Conversely, his review of ''VideoGame/AliensColonialMarines'' begins with him walking in front of the [[ChromaKey Green Screen]] dressed like a [[SpaceMarine Colonial Marine]]. He stands there staring dourly into the camera for a while before saying, "... you fucked it up!"
* StylisticSuck: Parodied in the review for ''KaneAndLynch: Dog Days.'' Corporate Commander tells his employees to just take the first game and add tons of terrible Website/YouTube video filter effects to screw it up and add ShakyCam until nothing is visible. "Yes! More! Excellent!"
** Played straight in the ''Videogame/AliensColonialMarines'' video, where Marine!Joe is fighting Xenomorphs who are quite obviously little action figures, and you can even see the hands manipulating them.
* SuckinessIsPainful: ''Sonic Free Riders'' is the [[BerserkButton absolute worst game]] that Joe has ever had the displeasure of paying for and playing. His absolute first 1/10 review. The game's SuckinessIsPainful index is so bad that Joe says he's going to sue Sega for Assault in the First Degree after revealing that [[SensoryAbuse the Kinect motion controls, combined with the overly loud soundtrack and horrible course designs filled with sudden 90 turns, WILL actually hurt you.]] It's so horrible that Joe returns it to Game Stop claiming that the game is broken. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome He gets a full refund and gets the Kinect Sports game that he made the mistake of passing up in the first place.]]
-->"Assault in the First Degree: To ''knowingly'' inflict bodily harm"
** The second game he's given a 1/10 to, ''{{Mindjack}}'', was so bad it left him a Stephen-Hawking-like shell unable to speak or move without mechanical assistance; it probably would have been a lot less offensive if the game hadn't had such a cool initial concept married to such a broken execution. Its one good point? [[EverythingIsBetterWithMonkeys Monkeys]].
** ''VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution'' not only left him catatonic, it sent him to hell to deal with Demon-Joe to do the review (Demon-Joe worked on the game, apparently...). However, the game ended up not breaking Joe as Demon-Joe hoped, but driving his rage-levels to new heights. He then woke up for the final blows to "perform the exorcism."
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Invoked, the new show's intro ''is'' the ''GIJoe'' opening theme (with repurposed lyrics).
* TakeThat: In his review of ''VideoGame/DivinityDragonCommander'' he takes the fact that the player can potentially legalize gay marriage and provide equal rights to women as a chance to do this to anti-feminists and homophobes. When displaying the conversations from the opposition that result in allowing gay marriage, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOPP4NUGexQ&t=13m25s he juxtaposes their arguments with a particularly infamous video of a woman speaking out against gay marriage and sodomy with incredibly baseless arguments.]]
* TheyJustDidntCare: [[invoked]]Corporate Commander's ''Raison D'etre''.
-->"Don't need it!"
** This is also a major PetPeeveTrope for Joe, whether it's an original game, or especially a licensed game.
* TopTenList
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Chik-Fil-A products.
* TwinkleSmile: When he thinks he's a knight.
* UnstoppableRage: Even worse when he becomes a [[Characters/GLRedLanternCorps Red]] [[GreenLantern Lantern]]
* UpToEleven: Joe's Top 42 Reasons Why Fable Sucks video, where he says a Top 10 list was just not enough to cover all the really bad points of the game and kept going.
* VerbalTic: Likes to pronounce "especially" as "ex-specially". He even made fun of it himself at some points.
* VideoReviewShow
* WhyDontYouMarryIt: Jokes that with so many ''Elder Scrolls'' games starting you out as a prisoner, they must have a fetish for it.
* WithLyrics: In his Worst Games of 2012, he reacts to a dinosaur-like monster in ''ResidentEvil6'' by playing the [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/holy-shit-its-a-dinosaur "Holy Shit, It's A Dinosaur"]] meme that uses the ''JurassicPark'' ending theme.
* WorstWhateverEver: He seems to say this far more often than he logically should.
