* AcceptableTargets: Bankers and the [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem Conservative Party]] ([[UsefulNotes/DavidCameron David Cameron]] in particular).
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Warning, if you're easily offended or a bigot of any kind, do not watch his Valentines day special. Of course, it's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] very early on.
-->'''Kyu''': Common misconception.
-->'''Dan''': I wish you were a misconception. ''({{beat}})'' Too dark? Too dark? I think, [[EventheSubtitlerIsStumped euwaghe,]] we'll test the waters, I think that was fine.
* EarWorm:
** The song from Music/DanBull that plays at the end of the majority of his videos, where he links to some other videos (including the below mentioned Mystery Videos).
-->"Enter the domain of the Nerd Cubed
-->Videos droppin' from above [[ToiletHumor like bird poo]]..."
** The song "Jaunty Gumption" by Creator/KevinMacleod, which appears as [[MoodWhiplash interruption music]] during his videos for ''{{VideoGame/SUPERHOT}}'' and ''Airport Simulator 2014''.
* FandomRivalry: He seems to have one with the main channel of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}, due to LetsPlay/LewisBrindley falsely accusing him of sponsored content not being disclosed in response to some reasonable criticism of Yogdiscovery; not helping matters was Dan's friend Matt tweeting a photo of Lewis being graphically stabbed (specifically, a character from ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' with Lewis' face added). Nowadays, mention the network (bar Martyn or another channel such as LetsPlay/{{Sips}} or LetsPlay/HatFilms) on Dan's subreddit and you will be shredded, and vice versa for /r/Yogscast unless it's a Little and Cubed video.
* FriendlyFandoms: With LetsPlay/InTheLittleWood, due to their ongoing "Little and Cubed" series. This is particularly notable due to him not getting on with the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} (or at least its main channel).
* GoodBadBugs: Explored at times.
** The ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag]]'' video runs into a few glitches.
---> '''Dan:''' If you see someone ping themselves off into the stratosphere, that's a known bug and I never want them to fix it.
* HePannedItNowHeSucks: A number of viewers weren't happy with his video on ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''. They felt that he was wrong about the game being a button-masher, and that he tried to treat the game as the next installment in the ''Solid'' series, rather than as a spinoff.
** His attitude towards the Xbox 360 and Xbox One has irked people in the past.
** When he panned 'Goat Simulator' for disliking its style of humor he received a lot of backlash, and it is probably one of his most downvoted videos.
* HilariousInHindsight: On Dan's "People to watch! (and not in a hiding-in-the-bushes way...)" video on his second channel, he gives a shout out to WebVideo/{{CharlieIsSoCoolLike}} and he mentions Charlies outro by ''Steven Friday'' and Dan considers himself low-class because he doesn't even have an outro. Come sometime later, and who does his [[Music/DanBull outro]]?
* MemeticMutation: Dan posts a link to a "mystery video" at the end of most of his videos. Fans will often comment on said mystery videos: "I was sent here by a man who *something that Dan did in the video*." Examples include: "I was sent here by a man who made a nuclear reactor in his bedroom while trying to find his glasses." from a "3 free game Friday" video in which Dan played ''I Can't Find My Glasses''.
** "BRAAAAAAAAAD!!!!"
* OlderThanTheyThink: Dan remarks in his video on ''VideoGane/KarmaflowTheRockOperaVideogame'' that there don't seem to be that many games that are musicals. From around the time of release (And the same platform as ''Karmaflow'', no less), there was ''VideoGame/BooBunnyPlague'', and if you're looking further back, ''VideoGame/EpicMickey2ThePowerOfTwo''.
