* AccidentalInnuendo: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boeI4YsihRk&t=9m15s So what you're saying is, keep out of]] [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Sakuya]]."

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Raocow has been described as a [[EldritchAbomination friendly Eldritch Abomination]] by his fans and not as "Samuel Tanguay".
* ArcFatigue: His ''Fantasy Explorer Nitroid'' went on for quite a while.
** This plagued a lot of his 2011/2012 videos.
* ArchiveBinge: Over 2500 videos across three video hosting websites. [[http://everything.raocow.com Have fun.]]
** As of 29 May '13, he has over 3k videos on Youtube alone.
* CantUnhearIt: His voice for [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Marisa]], despite the hilarious VocalDissonance.
* EarWorm: When he starts singing to the level music, he is an Ear Worm God.
** Especially during the video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg3TFzPIQK4 "Vip2- Meadow, Iggy's Castle and... uhm..."]] in the later section.
** Even [[{{Undercrank}} Chipmunk Raocow]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulX0mcTyGlw&t=5m00s spouts]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drv2guk-Rec&t=1m15s mult]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h25UNmYc8U&t=17m03s iple]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rD-eW700h0&t=3m45s ear]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xkjwyyr-bPk&t=6m20s wor]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JROo1OrA4VY&t=9m25s ms]] [[Funny/{{Raocow}} while making you laugh your ass off.]]
** He used to run foobar during videos in his Google Video days, and occasionally sang along. Some of that was the Ear Wormiest of all.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The toy duck that Raocow would occasionally squeak during videos became surprisingly popular, to the point that when it suddenly disappeared, hordes of fans started asking where it went.
** Raocow himself is arguably this for the LP Community. While he hasn't achieved nearly the success of other LP channels, he's been around since the inception of the genre and still makes videos for the fans that support him and out of genuine fun.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In his video for 75th place for Vanilla Contest '10, he states that he is glad his cat is not there.[[note]]Although he was saying that because the video had extremely horrible audio and that it would scare the cat.[[/note]]
** The tags for MKM vid 20 count [[spoiler:not guest-featuring gaston the cat]]
** Raocow's "hack" with Demo (Not to be confused with ASuperMarioThing, which was a collaboration project by Talkhaus), was this hack called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEskDyYnfaQ "What the Hell?"]] Well guess who the Chargin' Chucks were?
* GrowingTheBeard: Raocow [[http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-8824096830956537893&hl=en-CA# gets through his first LP with a straight-laced demeanour]] instead of his current wacky self. He starts to get into the swing by his second LP, and the rest is history.
* HilariousInHindsight: Raocow calls Yoshi a horse. [[http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=super+mario+bros+chess&gs_sm=3&gs_upl=704l3218l0l3312l22l18l0l0l0l0l226l1549l15.1.2l18l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=618&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=6331987222060900208&sa=X&ei=OVs3T47qMqnCsQLL9qDmBw&ved=0CFgQ8wIwAQ Yoshi is the knight on the Super Mario Bros Chess Set. Guess what the Knight (Which is a horse) in Chess looks like?]]
** Raocow did ascetic runs of Super Mario World ... well [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU recently integrated that feature to that game.]]
** When he first starts scuffling with Black Plague in Super Mario Infinity, the character design alone makes him bust out in a lengthy fit of uncontrollable laughter. After several minutes, he tries to convince himself to stop laughing, as "people do not click on the link to hear [him] laugh." Nowadays, it's considered the SignatureScene of the entire LP.
* ItsHardSoItSucks: Not from Raocow himself, but a good chunk of his fanbase have a tendency to immediately bash the game Raocow is [=LPing=] as soon as he starts having major trouble with it, even when he admits that it's his fault he's doing badly (which he eventually brings up.)
* MemeticMutation: "I hope I win!" [[note]]Explanation:While playing through the submissions for one of Super Mario World Central's level design contests, one of the last place entries included this in the opening text.[[/note]] While not originating from Raocow, it's probably safe to say he made it more popular.
** "It is now canon that..." ''A Super Mario Bros X Thing'', after a level prominently featuring "Etude No. 12 (Alegro con Fuoco)", included the statement that "It is now canon that Demo enjoys classical music." This led to many fans arbitrarily declaring that something about Demo is now canon.
** "I'm really good at videogames!" which he says, whenever he dies a not-so-smart death, such as jumping into an easily dodgeable spike.
** His LP of ''VideoGame/CatPlanet'' involved much repeating of the title, therefore: cat planet cat planet cat planet planet cat cat planet cat planet....
* {{Moe}}: If Raocow was the exact same person except for also being an adorable young girl, he would be the most famous person on the internet. Also most [[StalkerWithACrush stalked]].
** In the animations at least, some people have said this about Demo.
* MostWonderfulSound: His laugh is so infectious, especially when he laughs really hysterically.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: The first level he makes with the [[SuperMarioBrosX SMBX]] level editor, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjdKFiL8QNk murder death place zone]], is based around a ''net with the same chasing AI a Boo would have''. And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=bDFjJ_jD7OY#t=866s DemoWare]], which uses the level editor to its full potential.
* NightmareFuel: Most of his VideoGame/CopyKitty ranting is grade-A hilarity. Then he gets to the fight against [[spoiler: Exgal]], and it turns into a mix of hilarious and unnerving.
* SweetDreamsFuel: The first three episodes of the GMC Jam 16 series.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Note that Raocow is also straight-edge, meaning that he simply has a bizarrely appealing thought process. The art to ''a.t.x.s.'' does raise some suspicions.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdtehRUfzWc "cat"]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGtR_iAC1y0 "planet!"]]
** Subverted [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiuEUNk1M5k here]], when he fought [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Reisen]] while drunk, for [[MindRape obvious]] [[RuleOfFunny reasons]].
** You think ''a.t.x.s.'' seemed like it was made on drugs? You obviously haven't read ''[[http://exupry.comicdish.com/index.php?pageID=1 Exupéry, adventures of]]''.
** The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHRQvigfJ8Q normal super]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZBWYHlZikQ mario bros.]]'' videos are [[MushroomSamba trippy enough]], but the editing [[{{Undercrank}} cra]][[IncrediblyLamePun nks]] it UpToEleven.
*** The "normal super mario bros" videos [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=VYdvyA9IPhg#t=412s aren't the only time]] he did that.
* TheWoobie: The nature of Raocow's [[TalkativeLoon usual commentary]] means it's quite apparent when something actually begins to [[NintendoHard break]] him. Silent Raocow is one of the most heart-wrenchingly sad things you will ever hear. You want to reach over the Internet and give him a cookie or something.
** Sometimes his silence simply means he's concentrating on a particularly hard segment, though.
** His woobieness reaches new heights in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AMP5CwLNNk this]] video. He just sounds so...dejected.
** His cat died on June 25, 2010. In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pUAnUmsH8o&playnext_from=TL&videos=6lVpXmUtoD0&feature=sub this]] video he sounds like he's sobbing in the background.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KD795GmJyw The Sad Video]]
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJJ7oNXS1nU this]] episode of SMWCP, he sets a woobie record. Usually, when he dies at the hands of a rather unfair level, you'll hear him swear in his native French or occasionally a moan or grunt of frustration. In this video (except for one emotional outburst) all of his frustrations are vented through strained, painful whining. It's like watching a kitten fail.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8IY2eaYLtk&feature=g-all-u This]] episode of "New! [=SMW2=] Yoshi's Island" (Which is a pretty hard game itself) has also pissed Raocow off quite a bit to putting him in a really angry and sad mood. It's pretty painful for him to watch a playthrough of level (Which was actually revised by [=YoshiFan=] because he thought the other level before was too easy for an Extra level) where [[ThatOneLevel EXACT and]] [[PlatformHell precise timing is required, along with unexpected traps that someone playing before wouldn't be aware of]].
