* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Just how benevolent ''is'' Squiddington? Is he a benevolent guy that just has problems dealing with stuff that annoys him or a BitchInSheepsClothing?
** Some fans believe that Bertie is ObfuscatingStupidity after CharacterizationMarchesOn.
* BrokenBase:
** Less noticeable, but there are occasionally comments from people that miss the early dynamic of Bertie being the OnlySaneMan, with Gamechap as the CloudCuckoolander. These comments in turn receive replies indicating the opposite for others.
** [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Any time they come up on Reddit]], there will be a major split.
* DudeNotFunny: For a time, a few of their jokes had incited accusations of racism, sexism and politically incorrect content. This has died down a lot from 2014 onwards, however.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** The duo were this for Yogscast fans even before they joined, given how erratically funny they were in the crossover videos. A good dose of CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass helped this no end, particularly in Crown Conquest.
** Squiddington himself, owing to his CharacterExaggeration over the years.
* HarsherInHindsight: At one point, Gamechap and Bertie made a video regarding ''Pixelmon'' [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/222bia/pixelmon_mod_authors_issue_false_copyright/ which revealed some malicious programming on the part of the mod team]], and how they had been subsequently silenced. Come later in 2014, there is a Reddit post about [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/28qt8d/psa_warning_to_all_smaller_minecraft_youtubers_do/ a rather major scandal]] involving Gamechap's supposed stealing of fan-submitted content and his subsequent silencing of any criticism directed towards him ''and'' his past history of doing so. Eesh...
* HellIsThatNoise:
** The "EEEEEEE" scream became this later on. Beware, headphone users.
** "BUUUUGGGSSSS!!"
** Bertie's Dalek voice. DEAR NOTCH.
* InternetBackdraft:
** [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement See]] DudeNotFunny, although this has died down considerably.
** While The Yogscast fandom is known as being somewhat volatile, Gamechap caused a smaller one when he insulted them. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Better leave it there]].
** Their fans were ''not'' pleased when the makers of ''Pixelmon'', a mod for VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}, filed a false copyright report on one of Gamechap's videos since they [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/222bia/pixelmon_mod_authors_issue_false_copyright/ revealed some malicious programming on the part of the mod team]].
** And now, this is directed ''towards'' Gamechap, with [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/28qt8d/psa_warning_to_all_smaller_minecraft_youtubers_do/ a rather major scandal]] involving Gamechap's supposed stealing of fan-submitted content and his subsequent silencing of any criticism directed towards him ''and'' his past history of doing so. [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/28qt8d/psa_warning_to_all_smaller_minecraft_youtubers_do/cidk1h5 Gamechap's rather flippant response]] merely fanned the flames.
** In general, the OrwellianEditor attitude of Gamechap is rather controversial, partly because of actual criticism being blocked and partly because some of the comments that get users blocked are neither offensive nor critical of their channel. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjPbUtbBPYc&channel=yinge101 See]] [[http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/2a9vnr/oh_gamechap_just_me_getting_my_worries_onto_paper/ further]] posts. This caused a forum boycott and their subscriber numbers have tanked.
* NightmareFuel:
** Herobrine, as usual. Also, the Nightmare Golem.
** Herobrine gets MUCH scarier in the 1.3 vid about HIM being removed. At first, it looks like it's just gonna be an ordinary hilarious video about them thinking he's gone, when he's not. Then it switches to HIS point of view; all the sound is echoey, he's breathing hard, and he promptly builds a glow stone E. Then, he starts placing red stone torches. WHILE LETTING OUT A HORRENDOUS SCREAM. Then Game's door opens by itself...
*** The music certainly doesn't help either...
* MemeticBadass: Bertie, at least when it comes to blowing things up.
* MemeticMutation: Anything in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjEA7BXJY9I this]] video gets quoted in the comments of that video.
** "Boobs, lol"
* WhatAnIdiot:
** Any time Bertie gets given Gamechap by TNT. Made acceptable by RuleOfFunny.
* OrwellianEditor: Sometimes, they seem to pull this. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Let's leave it at 'this has caused several scandals and major drops in subscribers.']]
