* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: He has a gift for coming up with new lyrics to songs, like when he takes "Reptilia" by TheStrokes and turns it into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBHNKodo7Qw this.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIVAWDtdDhY He's never gonna give you up]]
** It's not easy living on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kF446RD22ec Skullcrusher Mountain.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNJBusvxF70&feature=player_detailpage#t=672s Space Christmas!]] Now, if only it was a full FilkSong instead of two scant bars of buttery-voiced goodness...
* DudeNotFunny: Jon's reaction to the person who lied about leukemia in order to get him and other people to LP his ROM hack. Jon's reaction was more disappointment rather than angry, but he still expressed that what the person did was not cool at all.
** When one of Jon's cohosts on Skype, Gex, had a FreudianSlip that made him blurt out the N-word accidentally, Lucahjin's attempts to make him feel better involved racist jokes that in and of itself left several viewers feeling very uncomfortable and offended, and even lost him a few subscribers.
* EarWorm: The muzak Jon uses to accompany his fortune cookie / straw poll and Intermission cards in his livestreams.
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Laura from the ''Mario Kart Wii'' videos is becoming very popular with viewers; a lot of people really like the sound of her voice.
** Some people from Jon's streams, such as [=DanTheEnigma=], are well-liked in the chat due to [[TheAce gaming skill]] ([[ButtMonkey or lack thereof]]) and frequently join Jon in games and calls.
*** From his ''VideoGame/BombermanActZero'': Dan (See above), Jewker, A Girlbreast, and Draw. The last of these is worth mention, as Draw isn't a physical player, but the ''actual'' condition of everyone else losing, resulting in a tie.
* FountainOfMemes: He's been responsible for more than a few [[MemeticMutation memes]] in his day.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In episode 2 of his LP of Notte Luminosa, he finds a minigame corner with a hilarious disclaimer. The disclaimer states that the minigame corner can not be held responsible for side effects such as alcoholism, crossdressing, gender confusion, and... cancer. Why is Jon playing the game? To fulfill the dying wish of the game's creator, who has cancer.
** HilariousInHindsight: It turned out that the creator was faking his cancer, making this joke a little more lighthearted.
* GameBreaker: Not in the usual way you'd expect, but in a ''literal'' sense. Jon has a tendency to make games he plays on stream [[GoodBadBugs glitch]] on him in hilarious ways, like the timer in Wheel Of Fortune counting up rather than down for example.
* GrowingTheBeard: Jon has gone through the trope at least twice in his LP career. In the beginning, Jon did lets plays of NintendoHard games by adding his own snark and witty commentary. It wasn't until Jon started to do lets plays of various Super Mario World ROM hacks (including Kaizo Mario) that his popularity soared while many memes from Jon were born. After getting tired of doing nothing but ROM hacks, Jon quit them altogether and focused on playing games he likes while giving the viewers an educational background behind the games.
* HilariousInHindsight: All the times Jon complained about "football players" (i.e. the Charging Chuck enemy) in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' romhacks. Then came ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''...
** ''VideoGame/NewSuperLuigiU'' gives players a scant 100 seconds for ''every'' level, making Jon's infamous quote a lot more applicable.
** Combined with HeartwarmingInHindsight, kind of: Jon's astonished joy in the first Bomberman Act Zero stream when after some minutes prodding his chat for volunteers, 'actually managed to get a full room' of 8 people to play the notoriously unpopular game. A few weeks later, he had popularised the game on Twitch to the point that any game room he starts fills up in a second or two.
* HoYay: Played for laughs when he and {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} sing [[{{Disney/Aladdin}} "A Whole New World"]] together during TheSpeedGamers marathon, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrjglkKv_28 at the request of fellow LPer CanisSkye]].
** Also with LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} during the [[http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=1979416415646504565&hl=en-CA# Milky Way Wishes]] [[http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=3930233179247898676&hl=en-CA# segments]] of his ''Kirby Super Star'' LP, wherein their characters proceed to ''make out with each other'' after picking up food.
** Plus with SuperJeenius during ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5''.
* MemeticBadass: Ashley turns Clint from ''Crash n' The Boys'' as one. '''[[LargeHam CLIIIIINT!]]'''
** [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]] and [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Chris Redfield]] also get this to some extent.
* MemeticMutation: MOVE FASTER POKEY! Probably the most famous meme associated with him. There's also "DEATH WATER" and "[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros NOW I'LL]] [[MostAnnoyingSound SHOW YOU!]]".
* MostWonderfulSound: The "glitch count" from his ''{{Superman 64}}'' LP (borrowed from ''KatamariDamacy'').
** He uses the 'tada!' sound effect from Windows 95 in his ''Resident Evil 5'' collab for things such as his epic rescue of SuperJeenius ("FOOOOOOTBAAAAALLL!") and when the two of them don't forget or miss anything in a level that he would have to recap later.
** Also, his laughter is pretty nice to listen to.
** In his livestreams, he uses a clip of Albert Wesker irately saying "YOU WILL GIVE ME AN EGG!" and injects it randomly into the stream at the request of the chat commentators, especially when he gets a new subscriber.
** In one livestream Jon revealed that he also thinks this about "[[LargeHam I am MASTER ASIA!]]" from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam''.
* NeverLiveItDown: Many examples.
** He's complained about "MOVE FASTER POKEY" many, many times. He only ever said it ''once'', not that you'd know, given its ubiquity (including here on TVTropes). He even wrote this in his guest bio for one Fan Convention:
--> "One day, Jon recorded a video of himself playing a video game and yelled at a cartoon cactus to move faster in it. He's been paying for that decision ever since."
*** Ironically, in his early romhack videos, he quotes "100 SECONDS?!" as the line everyone remembers from Kaizo; "MOVE FASTER POKEY" didn't really take off until [[Film/ThreeHundred people started doing Sparta remixes]].
** "Don't Eat The Mushroom" also gets this a lot. The phrase showed up in, of all places, one of the romhacks he was [=LPing=], and his [[PromotedFanboy fan and fellow LPer]], {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}}, absolutely ''relished'' saying it to him [[LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys when the opportunity finally arose]]. (Though later on, Jon managed to [[IronicEcho turn it against him]]).
** "DEATH WATER" and "NOW I'LL SHOW YOU" are a bit more deserving of their status; even though they each appeared in just one video, Jon [[OverlyLongGag repeated them over and over again]].
*** He even lampooned "DEATH WATER" himself with "CHERRY KOOL-AID".
** His Super Mario TKO LP, where he encouraged his viewers to play along, record, and upload their own videos. This resulted in a surge of terrible LP videos, and was probably the key factor in the decision to WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} him -- note that their primary criticism is his FollowTheLeader status.
*** He actually commented on the Retsupurae video, seeming to take it all in good taste.
** LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} seems determined to make the Notte Luminosa incident one of these; though he was very sympathetic about it on the Retsupurae podcast, he's still cracking jokes every time he thinks of it in the videos Jon guests in.
** "... but it's ''still'' anyones game!" seems to be turning into one for him.
* NightmareFuel: In Jon's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXj4m-wL_aM most recent video]], Jon reveals one of the reasons he's been so inactive was because when he needed to purchase a new Capture Card, the person who sold it to him ''died.''
* SoBadItsGood: This is his opinion of Superman 64, in the sense that the game is so poorly designed and programmed that it actually becomes fun to discover different ways to break it.
** He also considers BombermanActZero pretty fun if you can get people to play it with you online.
* StopHelpingMe: "Carmen Sandiego", aka Helper #3 in the ''Deal Or No Deal'' LP. Protonjon and Kelekin continually poke fun at 'her' dumb advice.
--> "You can't go ''lower'', Carmen, You ''CAN'T GO LOWER''!!"\\
"You are ''useless'', Carmen!"
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: He notes that the level music for Stage 8 of ''Superman'' for the Game Boy sounds a lot like the theme from ''Film/MissionImpossible''.
* TearJerker: Set up, but then subverted ''big time'' with Notte Luminosa. See DudeNotFunny.
** And then double-subverted with Yanama's apology video.
