----
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: A handful of people see Retsupuraes as constructive criticism, though slowbeef has said that they were simply making the riffs for fun. [[HilariousInHindsight Amusingly enough]], the parody/critique stream that he did with Diabetus effectively works on both fronts.
* ArcFatigue: During the ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2'' riff, they hadn't yet had their time limit removed, so they had to upload each part in fifteen minute chunks, once a day. This went on for over a month.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNEA83Cgv-U&feature=g-user-f The Unofficial Theme Song]].
* BaseBreaker: [=MegaManNG=], aka '[=MegaJose=]', has divided opinions. Some find him endearing and consider him the next LetsPlay/BillyMC, others find him absolutely irritating and don't want him on the channel again.
** Lowtax's guest appearance on Retsutalk Episode 34 was also somewhat divisive.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: After escaping from the exploding mechanical Big Bird in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMhT42V5H2s the last video]] of ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'', a plot point is abruptly introduced concerning a spy that is somewhere aboard Cobra's ship. Within minutes, [[spoiler:[[TheBusCameBack Parrot Grass somehow returns]], but not only quickly turns out to be the spy in question, but is also revealed to not even be the real Parrot Grass; it almost immediately sheds its disguise to reveal that it is some sort of demon-like creature. And just when it's about to explain who it is, [[KilledMidSentence Cobra kills it]] [[CurbStompBattle with one shot of his weapon]].]] The multitude of questions this raises - who and what was it, what was its mission, how did it know [[spoiler:who Parrot Grass is]], how and why did it [[spoiler:disguise itself as Parrot Grass]], etc. - are never answered, as the entire incident is never mentioned again.
** "How To Get A Raise" is full of these despite being allegedly educational. Besides the fact that you must earn a raise to pay for your ''cat's'' cancer treatment, the mouse in your boss's office can talk, and turning away when it tells you to will, in the words of one commenter, cause a "magic female rapist" to appear and begin stripping. And if one waits around for too long ''then'', the cop from "How To Get Out Of Speeding Tickets" will literally appear from nowhere, call you a pervert, and arrest you. The whole sequence is tellingly rather low on commentary.[[note]]The "tip" the game shows if you fail this way implies that all of this was a hallucination, because mice can't talk... ''which still doesn't explain the cop,'' but okay.[[/note]]
** About ten minutes into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyAvcyxBkKY Part 14]] of the ''Ambition'' videos, a small orb of green light suddenly appears and spends a few seconds bobbing around the screen before flying out of frame to form the previously-witnessed spotlight background to Duke as he kills the player with a tire iron. Slowbeef and Diabetus's reaction once they finish hysterically laughing pretty much sums it up.
-->'''Diabetus:''' "Oh my God, ''what?''"\\
'''slowbeef:''' "...Wha... ''wait'', what happened--"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "What was ''that''?!"\\
'''slowbeef:''' "[[OverlyLongGag Wait wait wait wait wait. Hold--hold on a fuckin' minute]], ''[[BigWhat what]]?!''"
* BrokenBase: Viewers are somewhat divided on the ''Apocalypse'' Wrongpurae, as a portion consider it the funniest case of {{reference overdos|ed}}ing, and the rest consider the {{Incredibly Lame Pun}}s render the video intolerable.
** While the Crappy Pasta videos have been well-received, some people are unhappy with the third part of Diabetus' ''VideoGame/MegaManUnlimited'' stream being hijacked by slowbeef.
** Similarly, viewers are divided over ''Slowbeef's House of Horror''. Some of them enjoy the higher production values, while others think that what made the ''Crappy Pasta'' videos so good was Slowbeef and Diabetus going in blind.
** The ''King's Quest VII'' Wrongpurae is another point of contention. Some want the duo to finish making fun of it instead of riffing on other things first, and others think that the material doesn't make the best riffing material or that they shouldn't subject themselves to the game if they find it boring. This isn't helped by the long ScheduleSlip between each episode.
* ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch: This seems to be the case with their Wrongpurae of ''[[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Cobra: The Space Adventure]]'' for the SegaCD. Neither of them seems to know a lot about the manga or the anime (slowbeef did mention he was going to read the manga at one point just to get an idea of the game's story but eventually decided to go into it blind), and assume Cobra [[DesignatedHero is as much a feeb in the original story]].
** This also happens with some of their fans, who'll base their opinions on games that get Wrongpuraed entirely on the videos, even if in certain cases the complaints should be actually leveled at the person playing the game.
* CriticalBacklash: It's happened several times:
** They mention LetsPlay/{{Sir Ron Lionheart}}'s low subscriber count, and blame it on his voice. [[CriticalBacklash Their spoofing of him made him extremely popular]] ''[[{{Irony}} because]]'' [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent of his accent]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8H6GrU4jYA The Mystery of the Sponsored Let's Play]]: Lots of Seamus's fans had found the video and in a fit of rage, have invaded it to give it [[HePannedItNowHeSucks hundreds of dislikes and negative comments]]. Retsupurae has gotten ire for riffing on certain [=LPers=] before, but not of this magnitude.
** The same thing happened on their riff on WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, but not quite on the magnitude of Seamus', as [[BrokenBase the Nostalgia Critic's own fanbase is split on the video]], and [[OldShame Doug Walker himself has expressed regrets over how it turned out]]. Some say the Critic's LP was a bad video and deserved it, some are panning the Retsupurae just like Seamus' fans did, and some are saying they disliked both the original Let's Play and the riff. Even slowbeef and Diabetus have expressed dislike over how the video turned out, saying that they should have scrapped the first take and done something different.
** It happened '''again''' with their Wrongprae of ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow''. Quite a lot of people have come to the defence of that particular game - and the series in general -- in the comments section, pointing out that [[VideoGame/KingsQuestIIRomancingTheThrone there were]] VideoGame/KingsQuest [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder games far]] [[VideoGame/KingsQuestMaskOfEternity more douchebaggy]]. Near the end of the Wrongprae, even slowbeef notes that ''V'' probably deserved it more, and guess what they went after next? slowbeef has since commented that he doesn't really think "VI" is bad, but he dislikes the protagonist.
** When they started the ''VideoGame/AloneInTheDark'' wrongpurae, they made fun of the game's graphics and animations, which prompted a lot of angry comments pointing out that the game came out in 1992, and that it really wasn't fair to mock the visuals, even if they look dated by today's standards. They ended up discussing this while the game was giving a ''really'' long infodump during the second vid, and said that while the graphics may have been impressive for the time, sprite-based games from the same period still looked and played much better.
** And yet again when they merely ''mentioned'' [=OMFGCata=]'s mini-Let's Play of ''I Wanna Be The Guy Gaiden'', ironically prompting slowbeef to RP it after all. Which, [[SarcasmMode shockingly]], led to still more InternetBackdraft. (In both this case and with Seamus, above, many of the people insulting slowbeef and/or Retsupurae claimed QualityByPopularVote).
** A less severe example is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhYDz2jYh-M&feature=relmfu HarmfulGravemind's LP of Super Mario World]]. Most people liked the RP (including [=HarmfulGravemind=] himself), but many people argued it shouldn't have been criticized that badly since the [=LPer=] wasn't that bad at the game and put significant effort into making the video good (even if he did it in a convoluted way).
** This may have been ''subverted'' with their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUVDXyUWO6c&feature=plcp Warioware RP]]. A lot of the viewers left comments saying they genuinely enjoy [=FFL2and3rocks=] (a.k.a WebVideo/ThirdRateGamer), but most of them have admitted that the original LP wasn't that good.
** This may also have been subverted with their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbVKL-Meo0&feature=plcp video they made about PewdiePie.]] The like/dislike scale on the video is much more favorable to Retsupurae than other videos of the same ilk. slowbeef even stated surprise at the support they've gotten, having expected the usual backlash.
*** It certainly helps that soon after, PewDiePie made a comment suggesting that he's OnlyInItForTheMoney, which caused huge chunks of his fanbase to turn on him.
** [=LargeMentalBlock=] did a riff on LetsPlay/AttackingTucans[='=]s 2,000 subscriber special (wherein he was covered in [[RunningGag Vagisil]]), causing quite a bit of backlash (though some noted that coating themselves in Vagisil, even for a subscriber special, is a very stupid idea).
*** The same channel faced even more backlash when they took on Jay Pavlina (of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosCrossover'' fame). As of 2013, the video has 23 likes and '''362 dislikes''', in addition to more views than they normally get.
**** And then some ''more'' with the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHmQ48CAorE From Hell]]" riff, which was on a video from an [=LPer=] [[spoiler:who committed suicide in August 2009]].
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Some of their videos.
* DudeNotFunny: Some of their attacks on bad [=LPers=] go a little too far. Acknowledged by slowbeef, who admits that he's ashamed of some of the older riffs, such as the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibaPEq9qCKg Starfox 64]]'' retsupurae.
** Queenie Z's RP is this in '''SPADES''' after it was discovered she is autistic.
*** Even before that, the revelation that she still gets bullied years after the retsupurae [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified slowbeef and Diabetus, as well as the audience]].
** Parodied in their VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream videos, during the infamous scene in Ellen's part. Diabetus knew it was there going in, and it was more to sidestep actually making jokes about it, which probably would be this trope.
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Most of the SoBadItsGood guys fall here, but [[Creator/EdwynTiong Dan McNeely]] from the [[VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy Trapped series]] gets a special mention. His SmugSnake voice and MagnificentBastard personality caught the attention of the riffers and the fans. Chip Cheezum even got his voice actor to do a DramaticReading of ''VideoGame/TheYouTestament'' creator [=MDickie's=] journal.
** Despite only guesting in a handful of early RP videos, Shmorky has a surprisingly large number of fans.
** This was pretty much free advertising for LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast and LetsPlay/BillyMC, among a select few [=LPers=] that the crew like.
** [[OriginalCharacter General Dysisa]] from the ''Metroid Extinction'' riff, who gets brought up occasionally in other ''Metroid''-related videos.
** [[VideoGame/DarkSeed Mike Dawson]] remains the subject of a great deal of fanart well after the Wrongpuraes of both games.
** Among the guest retsupuraers, Proteus4994 and Dave_O are the most popular. The latter's return in August 2012 has been met with much praise.
*** [=VoidBurger=], similarly, has recently proven a runaway hit; many of the comments on the videos featuring her include requests that she become a Retsupurae regular.
** slowbeef and Diabetus both like Kuroinokaze's Longplaying style, and note that he [[OneOfUs shares a number of their sentiments]].
** ''VideoGame/DeepFear'' gives slowbeef and Diabetus Mooky and Dubois to gush over.
** Similarly, ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' had Rock Knight, Parrot Grass, and Deathball.
** slowbeef's wife has a small, growing fandom because of her tendencies to show up at the weirdest situations, causing unexpected hilarity.
** VideoGame/{{Harvester}} gives slowbeef [[DirtyOldMan Mr. Johnson]], an old man whose love of sex and cars made slowbeef like him almost instantly.
*** Steve is also this to the fan base. Fans see Steve as a way better character than Mike Dawson, who could put up a fight and [[MemeticBadass kick anyone's ass.]]
** [=AllShamNoWow=] was popular when he showed up on Retsutalk, and became even more so during the ''T.R.A.G.: Mission Of Mercy'' Wrongpurae.
* {{Fan Hater}}s: Most of the comments on a riffed video can be summed up as: If you like this loser, you suck.
** As for the Let's Players that were riffed on, this could apply to some of them. While they might not mind the people of Retsupurae themselves, they may dislike the fans. Of course a number of the fans of riffed [=LPers=] start saying the exact same thing to fans of Retsupurae.
** slowbeef himself is one to fans of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. It doesn't come up too much in the videos, but when it does it's almost always in a derogatory context -- reinforced by the fact that that one of his tweets reads something along the lines of "in New Jersey, liking ''My Little Pony'' is grounds for instant divorce". He and Diabetus later state that part of this is because they don't understand the PeripheryDemographic.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Taken to a extreme with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzPrmc4kVCo Loneliness]] which says that if a loved one dies, ''you should kill yourself.''
* FauxSymbolism: Mocked by Chip and Ironicus in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gr8c6Ike3B4 A Demon Tale]].
* FetishRetardant: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlC0eJ6m-1M Yowie Wowie!!]]'' Barring the rancid "script" and the terrible apron joke, this is a video that caters to neither Yaoi fans (because it prominently stars two ''women'') nor Yuri fans (because said girls are also pretending to be ''boys''). And even if you're a fan of both, said script and jokes are likely to cause more headshaking than arousal.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: George Wood's suggestion that [[VideoGame/TombRaider Lara Croft]] get breast cancer got less funny after AngelinaJolie's double mastectomy.
* HarsherInHindsight: slowbeef's enthusiasm for ''Dangan Ronpa'' in the Retsutalk videos becomes this, considering the growing prominence of the FanDumb for both of the LP threads (which he had been paid to moderate) have basically tarnished his ability to enjoy the game. He's even made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jpiym8Dh_KQ a series]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvMn729nbSw&list=UU7UdKZ9ujF1sFlP93dfjMgA of videos]] [[TakeThat tearing into the game]].
** Queenie Z's infamous RP and the reaction it had after it was revealed she has autism.
* HellIsThatNoise: The Wrongpurae of VideoGame/KingsQuestV ends with one last video showcasing what happens if [[spoiler:you leave Cedric to die on the harpy island]], ending with an extremely distorted version of the town theme.
* HePannedItNowHeSucks:
** After they mocked [[http://www.viddler.com/explore/retsu/videos/85/ LuizPrower]], [=UltraJMan=], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Te1FI4JX7Ww Protonjon]] [[note]]although the duo don't bear much - if any - animosity towards him, evidenced by his appearance as a guest commentator in several ''King's Quest VII'' videos[[/note]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FtaBfbFV4A Cloud8745]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSd-9ZVbZA4&feature=channel_page DeceasedCrab]], LetsPlay/HCBailly, [[LetsPlay/{{Critikal}} penguinz0]] [[note]]However, the video on him didn't stay up for even an hour before removal, probably due to PoesLaw and that he doesn't actually do Let's Plays, just brief gameplay videos of both popular and obscure games.[[/note]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRlbvTWp828&feature=related Oyster]]. [[spoiler:Made funnier by the fact that Oyster was in on that one all along.]]
*** Strangely enough, before Diabetus started Retsupurae he did a few Let's Plays with LetsPlay/DeceasedCrab as either a guest or co-operative commentator, most notably his ''VideoGame/LittleNemoTheDreamMaster'' [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Nemo/ LP]]. slowbeef did an alternating LP with [=DeceasedCrab=] on ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV'' before Retsupurae as well. They've said that they did the riffs due to his SmallNameBigEgo status.
** Inverted in the case of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtmSY3u9CUM SirRonLionheart]]. Though he wasn't that popular at the time of the episode; Ron's subscriptions ''[[CriticalBacklash skyrocketed]]'' after this grilling. They've even said that they love him, now.
** The same has been said for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayeMqizulX0&feature=channel_page ElectricalBeast]]. EB, for his part, quite enjoyed his retsupurae videos.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8H6GrU4jYA SSoHPKC.]] Only five hours after the video was posted, it had 1,200 likes and ''1,600 dislikes''. To be fair, all of the dislikers were followers of Seamus and Machinima, which was at least 300k strong for Seamus alone. To make matters even worse, [=SSoH=] is a follower of Retsu much like ProtonJon, and has admitted he even likes the video, but [[FanDumb people still don't catch on and accuse slowbeef and Diabetus of pointless trolling]].
** Their riff on WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic caused quite a bit of flak, mostly for all the personal insults, although it was somewhat mitigated by Doug himself admitting the LP went really, really badly.
** Their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lTnbgHeZDw Amnesia: The Dork's Descent]] video got a lot of flak from both fans of the [=LPer=] and fans of [[VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent the game]], who claimed it was scary enough to justify [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl the LPer's reactions]].
** During the Wrongpurae of ''Apocalypse'', slowbeef briefly mocked the Playstation, wondering if there were any games besides ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' that were memorable on the system. Whether or not he was serious (it may well have been a reference to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8LFOVGUt2g "Nintendo 64 vs. Playstation" NAViGaTR video]], which they mocked for expressing a similar opinion), ''many'' people took it badly.
** They made an extremely negative video centered around PewDiePie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbVKL-Meo0&feature=g-all-u and his LP's in general]]. His fans haven't taken it too well.
*** This became even more notable when fans on both sides exploded at [=PewDiePie=] himself commenting on the situation, which only made things worse. This seems to have mostly died out now with [=PewDiePie=]'s apology video, though attacks on retsupurae and their fans are still common.
** Mostly averted with their riff on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANeEDOQY9rY ImmortalHDFilms]], where only a fairly small amount of his fans reacted negatively.
** Also averted with slowbeef and Mr. DJB's riffs on ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa''. Only a few people actually cried "HePannedItNowHeSucks!"; most viewers are just expressing bafflement at how slowbeef's opinion of the game inexplicably ([[FanDumb or not]]) pulled a ''complete'' 180 in just a few months.
** Averted with Chip Cheezum, who mocked Minecraft Chick and [=DarkSydePhil=] with little to no fan backlash, although Phil posted several angry tweets after the video went up.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** During the retsupurae of Cornshaq's Mario 2 [=LP=], slowbeef utters, "Mrs. O'Neil, the answer to this multiplication problem is 12, but also Mario 2 is the greatest game ever." Some have drawn parallels between that statement and one that a certain [[Music/KanyeWest famous person]] made over a year later.
** Reading [[http://www.bartleby.com/130/ "On Liberty"]] becomes a bit difficult after watching "[=SNES9X=]".
** Likewise for ''Literature/AmericanGods'' after watching "A Public Service Announcement for Let's Players".
** During the riff on ''LetsPlay/ProtonJon'', Diabetus makes a joke about Jon's prolific uploading. A couple of years later, Jon became infamous for ScheduleSlip.
** In the ''Arise 2'' RP, when they encounter a keypad, Diabetus [[GenreSavvy immediately asks]] if the code is [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]]. It isn't. One year later, ''Arise 4'' comes out. There's another keypad in that game. Guess what the code is?
** On a more worldly aspect, the makers of ''Last Alert'' made one of the villains an {{Expy}} of Libya's Gaddafi. That said, Gaddafi was a very visible figure in the mid-to-late 80s; see Abdul Fakkadi from ''TransformersGeneration1'' for another example. Come Retsupurae:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "I think it's supposed to be Qaddafi from Libya, but you know how videogames do that fake--"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "A lot of foresight, there."
*** Earlier on, the fake President boss explodes, leading to Diabetus joking that he was a robot all along. [[spoiler:This turns out to be the case with the last of the BigBadEnsemble.]]
** In one video, they claim that Miss Hannah Minx is "a cross between Hello Kitty and Elvira!" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7rB6sxrQc0 Later]]...
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4jwRuZzxEE this video]], Diabetus says he can't wait until people start [=LPing=] ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' right after release. Two days later [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aY9r6MqGksE this happened]].
** Near the start of "True Shit", Diabetus takes a crack at the opening credits of ''VideoGame/TheTownWithNoName'', asking "Is this a Western, or Sci-Fi?" [[spoiler:The ending to the game has the main character ride a train off into space.]]
*** In the same video, Diabetus mocks the overly simplistic "Here's The Queen" card game by saying "In the DLC they have an Ace". A few days after the RP, cubex55 posted a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeV18bZGMqc&feature=related "Full Version"]] of the original Longplay with a few things he missed (including the "real" ending of the game). One of those things was a different card game called... "Chase the Ace".
** slowbeef and Diabetus call Cobra the "anti-Han Solo", and the former even asks if Cobra's attempting to imitate [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]] at one point. Earlier, Dante and Han Solo were considered derivatives of Cobra.
*** When the villain at the temple reveals his name to be Hammerbolt Joe, Diabetus offers his condolences. Later in the game, Cobra makes the same joke after [[spoiler:killing the fake Parrot Grass before it can finish revealing its name]].
*** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKUcSdCXzXc Part 4]] of the ''Cobra'' Wrongpurae, the duo speculate about what enemy they will face next after fighting the Fire Dragon and Wolfhounds. slowbeef guesses Parrot Grass, but Diabetus concludes that he wouldn't be threatening enough. [[spoiler:Later, Parrot Grass returns in the form of a disguise donned by a huge, demonic alien infiltrator. [[ZigZaggingTrope Although Cobra then proceeds to immediately kill him, so maybe Diabetus was right after all.]]]]
** In the ''Meat Boy'' RP, slowbeef jokes that when the player gets the golden god achievement he will instead get the "Stop Playing" achievement. In VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac DLC, this is a possible title screen.
** In LetsPlay/BillyMC's original Let's Play of Mario Bros. with [=TheLimePopsicle=], the two start doing impressions of each other, causing [=TheLimePopsicle=] to say "[[ThatCameOutWrong I can't do BillyMC]]." In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHz9dyfYLRQ the accompanying retsupurae]], when they are doing their impressions, slowbeef makes ''the exact same double entendre'':
--> '''slowbeef:''' "They're gonna [[HoYay do each other]] now."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "Watch your wording."
** Somewhat early on in the ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'' Wrongpurae, they joke about Jack being the same in the Dark World as he is in the Light world. [[spoiler:[[GainaxEnding Guess what happens at the end?]]]]
*** When Mike asks a Darkworlder how he can be sure he's in the Darkworld, slowbeef jokingly responds "Because in here you're the coolest person alive". [[spoiler:Turns out to be true, within the game's universe.]]
** In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0D29PiJ7J0 second video]] of a ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' LP from their livestream, slowbeef proposes that they forego making fun of the LP and instead make fun of the game. While ''Heavy Rain'' has not yet been a subject, this is basically the premise of the Wrongpuraes.
*** It's come full circle with the duo considering to riff on the whole game some time in the future.
** In late 2010, the Ridley voice had its magnum opus in the Omega Ridley battle from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3: Corruption'', including a lengthy rant about ''Heavy Rain''. In September 2011, a ''Jurassic Park'' arcade game Wrongpurae reintroduced the voice to make fun of the dinosaurs. Two months later, Creator/TelltaleGames released ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTheGame'', with gameplay that's heavily based on ''Heavy Rain''.
** An early joke in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-Lnl4O_YsI this video]], wherein slowbeef and Diabetus riff on a Newgrounds ''Zelda'' "parody" that uses graphics from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', revolves around it supposedly being an E3 sneak peak of the first Wii U ''Zelda'' game. Come the following year, it would be revealed that the first ''Legend of Zelda'' title for the Wii U would be an HD remake of ''The Wind Waker''.
** During their RP of [=LuwiigiMaster=] in "The Marios", Proteus quips that he thinks they should stop doing the RP early on in the video. Now, remember what happens at around 6:35 in the video along with how the gang considers it an OldShame...
** In "Mr. Miyagi, where did you get all these [=LPs=]?", slowbeef asks, "Who the hell knows the name of [[Characters/TheKarateKid the characters]] in ''Film/TheKarateKid''?"
** In Episode 7 of the Retsutalk podcast, slowbeef jokingly declares "Fun fact: The first ten minutes of this podcast will be cut out." When the episode aired, the first ''half'' of the episode is missing because dave_o accidentally deleted it.
** In Chip and Ironicus's parody of ''WebAnimation/ElementalGoddess'', Chip notes that one character has a special eye condition. No, it's not about [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/my-brand her brand]].
** In Retsupurae Mario Party, Ironicus claims that the [=LPer=] sounds like a German version of Wario. Wario is played by his German voice actor in the first two ''Mario Party'' games.
** The joke about Mike Dawson taking a picture of himself in the [[DarkSeed Darkseed 2]] riff became this after the Selfie fab started.
** During slowbeef's dramatic reading of ''Mega Man's Ladder to Hell'', he asked the question "So you think his dead brother passed down this cursed video game to him?" [[spoiler:Turns out it was cursed by the protagonist's dead brother, who was out to get back at him for being the favorite in the family, instead of his parents for shafting him.]]
** At one point in the ''T.R.A.G.'' Wrongpurae, [=AllShamNoWow=] wonders how short the credits will be for the game. [[spoiler:In the video they watch, the credits last for only a second before the longplayer skips them.]]
** In the tenth part of their ''WebAnimation/{{Xin}}'' commentary, Chip notices that somebody posted a review that matched their commentary in the first nine parts.
-->'''Chip:''' "Who did this?"
** Near the end of the ''Shadow of the Comet'' wrongpurae, the duo make jokes that the ending for the game will be like ''Super Mario Brothers 2'', with Cthulhu having dreamt the entire game. This actually ties into the Franchise/CthulhuMythos, where it is said that Cthulhu and his ilk are sleeping, their dreams creating the world.
* HoYay: Between slowbeef and Dave_o in their ''VideoGame/{{Braid}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvs5d50Rwsc retsupurae]].
* IAmNotShazam: The man behind the "Gaming In The Clinton Years" videos is called "navgtr" by slowbeef and Diabetus. His name is actually George Wood, and navgtr (or [=NAViGaTR=]) stands for "National Association of Video Game Testers and Reviewers."[[note]]The name is in all the videos because they're the ones who collected and archived the videos.[[/note]]
** In rants against them, the term "Retsupurae" is almost always confused for just one guy. This indicates that either the complainants have literally never seen an RP video, or that they're actually too stupid to realize that there's more than one voice talking in the vids.
* MemeticBadass: It was inevitable, given their frequent AlternateCharacterInterpretations.
** After playing up [=BillyMC=] as a ButtMonkey for some time, slowbeef and company decided to start cheering him on and treat him like a person who decided to DareToBeBadass. The fans have taken off with this.
** Their take on [[VideoGame/EvilZone Gally 'Vanish' Gregman]] and/or his voice actor, Creator/PaulEiding.
** Cornshaq, who's in such a hurry that he doesn't have time to die and doesn't even need to breathe at all.
** Duke Crabtree from the [[Creator/ZapDramatic Ambition]]'' series is shaping up to be this due to being the only character who isn't totally incompetent. [[spoiler:[[MemeticMutation That's because he's a terrorist]].]]
** Rock Knight from ''Space Adventure Cobra'' is also given this treatment, to the point that [[spoiler:Diabetus and slowbeef start shouting "NON CANON" after his death scene]].
* MemeticLoser: Mike Dawson, who is considered the wimpiest game "[[DesignatedHero hero]]" of all time by everyone, in-universe and out.
** Same goes for Cobra, who's now known as the second biggest loser.
** After their Wrongpurae of ShadowOfDestiny, Eike Kusch has become one, with most fans feeling that he has serious contention for the position of "Dumbest Motherfucker in a Wrongpurae".
** John Parker from Shadow of The Comet has become this thanks to him having a heart attack after looking at a photograph.[[note]][[{{Misblamed}} Granted, the picture was implied to be a Cthulhu-esque picture that'll surely scare anyone.]][[/note]] Both Retsupurae and the fanbase love to think that Parker would get a heart attack from just about anything.
* MemeticMutation: [[Memes/{{Retsupurae}} Has its own page.]]
* MostAnnoyingSound: Some noises just ''really'' irritate these guys.
** Rijno's [[VerbalTic constant use]] of "OKAY!" annoys them to no end.
** Any [=LPer=] who sings along with the music, does voice impressions, or uses too many sound effects. Playtennis14 and [=NostalgicRageHQ=] are two good examples.
** Their opinion on [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Doug Walker's]] voice when he screams.
** The oyster in ''King's Quest VI'' gets this reaction as soon as he starts talking.
** In the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay, Diabetus remarks how annoying the alarm is. Then a character gives the order to "sound the alarm!" while an alarm is clearly already sounding. A new alarm starts sounding along with the original alarm.
** The town music in ''King's Quest V''. When Kuroinokaze goes back into the town a fourth time, they begin to wonder if the longplay video was actually designed to ''kill'' them.
** Various animals in ''King's Quest V'', too, which leads to an unusual insult based on the above:
--> '''Diabetus:''' ''[about the rat]'' Your voice is like the town theme.
* {{Narm}}: About half (if not all), of the flash videos or games on Retsufrash.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsUihT9hD2s Broken Dreams]]'' attempts to be a rather serious game about stalking... with sprite artwork from ''VideoGame/MapleStory''. As if that weren't bad enough, there are a couple of levels that feature the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Mare in the Moon]] in the background (even worse, it's the biggest object in that particular background, so your eyes are naturally drawn to it). As if ''that'' weren't bad enough, a cutesy cartoony giraffe head, part of the logo for gameark.com, is pasted on the upper-left corner of the screen at all times, as {{lampshaded}} endlessly by slowbeef and Diabetus to hilarious effect.
** Lots from the stories riffed on during the Crappy Pasta videos, such as this hysterical line from ''Ihsoy'':
-->Curiosity killed the cat. Or in this case, curiosity killed everyone.
* NetworkDecay: The channel continues to undergo this, shifting from focusing on bad [=LPers=] to focusing heavily on {{MST}}ing flashes, longplayed games, creepypasta, and the like. Admitted by slowbeef, who said that they were beginning to run out of material for retsupurae videos, and noting that their FanDumb was making them wary of riffing on just any [=LPers=]. He said this on Formspring in response to a fan asking why they went in this direction:
-->'''slowbeef:''' For the record, I put a lot of thought and watch a lot of longplays before I find one. We don't just put up anything - we'll IM each other during the sessions or even drop sessions altogether.\\
What happened to the riffs? False copyright claims, fans who would genuinely try to get RP victims knocked off YouTube, people intentionally making bad videos in order to get RP'ed. We are going to try a few more LP riffs, but we'll see.\\
I genuinely enjoyed doing the Last Alert, Dark Seed, Earnest Evans, and Cobra longplays, and thought they were some of our best stuff. [=KQ6=] took a bit to get going, but I liked how that turned out too. IMDB was just sort of a "for-fun" thing. I think everyone does things like that from time to time.\\
As far as effort-ful VLP goes, that's what SA is for. I'm in the middle of an effort-ful SSLP, and I might want to do another after that.\\
But I can't possibly be the guy everyone loves. I can only devote so much time to doing Let's Play, modding Let's Play, and mocking Let's Play before my head explodes. But if you think all I care about are fans, all I can say is every person I probate/ban is someone who'll never be one.
* NightmareFuel:
** [=BigMastodon=] shoving pizza rolls into his greasy obese maw. Even the typically imperturbable Diabetus sounds excruciatingly grossed out.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLEUbXyCpHg Some of the later quoted comments in this video.]] Kudos to Mr. Beardly for the voices.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3sDDem8dJ0&feature=related ZeldaAAAAaaaaAAAGH]], where over half a video's footage turns into a glitchy, broken mess. If you're a fan of MarbleHornets or other similar works, this can be quite scary. Several people have commented that they expect to see Slenderman somewhere in the video.
*** [[WebVideo/BenDrowned Taken to the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akRR_ZN4W-Q logical conclusion]].
** Part 9 of ''VideoGame/{{Harvester}}'' features the infamous nightmare scene where the baby's eyes [[EyeScream pop out]] and her mother [[{{Squick}} pushes them back in]] ''[[{{Squick}} with her bare hands]]''. The duo's commentary is tellingly a little low, and slowbeef remarks afterwards:
-->"''Harvester''! So let me just ask you, ''did you see that coming?'' Because I forgot all the fuck about that."
** By contemplating the FridgeHorror, almost all of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q2Ep9lz5Ao I'm going to make my own girl.]]'', especially at the 6:26 mark. But this line takes the cake.
-->"I'm gonna make my own girl and you're gonna watch me."
** [=BaronVonBadGuy's=] WallOfText in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqNGTJmqvQE Wanna Dance with Kim?!]] video, if you can wade through the {{Padding}} and PurpleProse.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7XlmO3e7Y8 This video]] of a shirtless man wearing a Batman mask, doing a Christian Bale Batman impression, and ranting about rap music.
-->'''Khad:''' "...I feel like I'm on... what, the third layer of hell right now?"\\
'''slowbeef:''' "I think you need, like, irrational numbers to describe that."
* NightmareRetardant:
** Their reaction to all of the "scary" flashes that they've watched.
** ''Lechuza'' too. When the scariest thing about your horror game is the haggard-looking face of your protoganist plastered across the title screen, something is very wrong. At the end of the game, an owl demon appears to kill the protoganist: the creators clearly want you to be scared out of your mind, but it falls flat because the "owl demon" is just a photograph of a great horned owl!
** Their main thought on "Where Am I?" was basically that it was an attempt at NothingIsScarier that ended up making the game downright bland.
** The creepypastas that slowbeef reads during a livestream.
*** ''Sonic.exe'' takes most of its "scary" elements from games other than ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' (and overuses gaming-related analogies even in descriptions of its own attempts at horror) and tries to make a blood-soaked Sonic plushie scary. It's also notable for the fact that [[ValuesDissonance the protagonist puts the lives of the game characters on the same level of importance as that of his probably-murdered best friend]].
*** ''Ihsoy'' is simply very hard to follow, as it includes inane descriptions of useless information - such as the narrator's trip to [=GameStop=] to buy the game - features incredibly bad action-movie style banter between the narrator and the monster, and the majority of the story is spent with Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Princess Peach, and Bowser being possessed and un-possessed over and over again with no apparent rhyme or reason for why any of it is happening. All of the possessed characters' names are also backwards, making the possessed Princess Peach's name "Hcaep Ssecnirp". Yeah. Good luck pronouncing that. [[note]]It's apparently pronounced "Hickayip Secknirp".[[/note]] It certainly isn't helped by the fact that the BigBad turns out to be [[spoiler:'''Reznor''', which is almost unanimously considered one of the easiest bosses in an entire franchise that is full of easy bosses, and doesn't even have the benefit of having an intimidating appearance either]]. The author [[AttentionWhore whoring his YouTube channel]] at the end of the story did not make things any better.
*** ''Blood Whistle'' includes strange descriptions of laughing fish, ritualistically suicidal Goombas, PurpleProse to an absurd degree, and attempts to create atmospheric horror by changing all water into blood and scattering random demons and pentagrams everywhere. The main character is also far more profoundly effected by the game's content than is probably realistic, to the point of committing suicide [[spoiler:by ''stabbing himself in the neck with his old recorder'']] after he stops playing the game.
*** Then came a fourth one, ''[[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Yellow Devil]]'' involving a Cut Man who can somehow breathe and suffocate (despite Cut Man being a robot) and copious usage of blood in an attempt to make the story more frightening or tense. It got to the point that, before slowbeef nearly finished a descriptive sentence, Diabetus wondered if the last word of said description was "blood," to which it ''was.'' Cue the two borderline {{corpsing}}.
*** The fifth one, ''Ladder to Hell'', features a protagonist whose brother commits suicide and leaves him a copy of ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'', which apparently causes him to get over ''his brother's death'' instantly. [[spoiler:It turns out that his brother was TheUnfavorite and ''possessed the cartridge'' to get back at the protagonist. [[WhatAnIdiot As opposed to the parents who neglected him]], [[SarcasmMode of course]].]]
*** The sixth one, ''Tracy'', features a ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' cartridge possessed by the ghost of a young girl who somehow managed to beat her parents to death with a plastic NES controller. By the end it turns out to be a bizarre attempt at some sort of romance story, apparently having forgotten the horror aspect altogether.
*** The series took on a new format in the form of "Slowbeef's House of Horror," debuting with ''0bl1v10n.exe'', a story about a master hacker whose "hacking" abilities initially seem to be limited to downloading obviously-unsafe torrents and mounting disk images (with great speed, despite complaining about the slowness of his internet connection). Of course, come the end of the story, his hacking skills have grown to such a degree that he is able to literally ''destroy entire websites'' at will. Other highlights include [[spoiler:him miraculously not coming under suspicion for the death of his (unnamed) best friend - despite the fact that threatening messages were sent to the friend from the protagonist's Steam account the previous day -- and the protagonist simply destroying his computer to successfully defeat the uber-powerful, demonic antagonist]]. The story also seemed to be playing with the IdiotBall, as the protagonist claimed that he never broken the law when he found out that he was banned on Steam, yet [[{{Irony}} he]] ''[[DigitalPiracyIsEvil pirated]]'' [[{{Irony}} video games off the Internet]], which is a felony.
*** The second ''Slowbeef's House of Horror'' is a ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' creepypasta. Enough said.
*** ''I HATE YOU'' claims that what the narrator found in ''Super Mario World'' wasn't the result of a hack or a haunting, but a legit part of the game. This might work if they were playing an actual copy of the game and not on an emulator.
*** ''It Wasn't Lavender Town'' tries to create a frightening story using [[PurpleProse fancy descriptions]] and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness big words]]. The result ends up being more confusing than scary.
*** ''Blood Pichu'' also includes inane and pointless information, such as the narrator saying they had an interest in "video game controversies", which never comes up again. The narrator also claims they're a huge Pokemon fan and tries to prove it by saying they have a box with all the Pokemon games and then proceeds to list ''every game from Red and Blue to [=SoulSilver=] and [=HeartGold=]''. But then they make a novice mistake and claim that the Pichu that somehow appeared in a Gen 1 game was a Gen ''3'' Pokemon. The narrator is also seemingly killed by the Pichu in the real world and somehow becomes one with the game?
* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: A coping mechanism often employed by subjects of the [=RPs=].
** [[LetsPlay/SirRonLionheart On the]] [[LetsPlay/BillyMC rare occasion]], [[LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast though]], [[ColbertBump this actually turns out to be true.]]
* OlderThanTheyThink: During the ''Shadow Of The Comet'' Wrongpurae, slowbeef mistakenly thinks that the writers lifted the term "Necronomicon" from the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' franchise. In reality, Creator/SamRaimi lifted the tome's name from Creator/HPLovecraft, whose works directly inspired the game in question. Later, when a character says "that which is not dead can eternal lie", slowbeef recognizes it as a Music/{{Metallica}} lyric, when the song it's used in was inspired by Lovecraft.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Cherrydoom's appearances in some early Retsupuraes weren't very well-received, with fans complaining that she didn't really add much to the videos. Her appearances in several podcasts have been met with significantly more praise.
* TheScrappy: If a video features a guest commentator that isn't Dave_O, Chip Cheezum, General Ironicus, Proteus, Schmorky, or [=VoidBurger=], you can bet that some of the comments are gonna bash them.
** [[LetsPlay/FreelanceAstronauts Ferr]] got a lot of hate for starring in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jKHamzykgc the infamous]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsoJon2iw8M drunken Retsupuraes]], although at that time he was drunk with Diabetus and the commentary from him was questionable.
** If you look at some of the [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2A3A5FFF9CA8C956 Webcam Ward]] videos, there will likely be a couple comments saying how annoying Khad is.
** Though you can say most [=LPers=] featured on Retsupurae are disliked, none seems to have attracted as much vitriol, both amongst the crew and the fanbase, as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7iF0RRAZRc Queenie Z]]. Lijik was a similar, which eventually forced him to close his account.
** Fictional example: ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2's'' Mike Dawson. You can practically feel the animosity slowbeef and Diabetus have for him as the longplay goes on.
** Another fictional example: [[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Cobra]], who spouts dumb one liners and feels more like a loser than the "brave, space pirate" [[InformedAttribute the game claims he is.]]
-->'''slowbeef:''' "I'm rooting against the protagonist here!"
** Speaking of ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2'', [=ADVGames4ever=], the guy who longplayed the game, is this as well for wasting the riffers and the viewers time by talking to every single character in the game after ''every'' plot event (regardless of if that character actually gets new dialogue from it), and for standing still doing nothing usually for about 2 minutes. People have said that the longplay could've been much shorter if he were to edit the footage. Granted his pauses did give us some really funny moments from the duo.
* SoBadItsGood: Some of the [=LPers=] that got riffed on fall into this territory.
** [=WhiskeyOnTheRoad's=] zoomed-in Pokemon Yellow LP [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1oVnDboM10 has to be seen to be believed]].
** [=ActionBastard's=] MonsterInMyPocket LP with his "petty douchebag" friend, [[TheWoobie Tyler]].
** The sprite machinima ''Metroid Extinction'', which seems to revel in being terrible.
** Several of the games they riff on, such as ''VideoGame/TheTownWithNoName'', and ''TheTrappedTrilogy''.
** [=Jay7492XYZ::=] ([[StylisticSuck who is actually Psychedelic Eyeball]]) did a retsupurae of LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}}. It falls under this.
** There's actually an ''[[http://atheistsagainstrp.tumblr.com/ Atheists Against Retsupurae]]'' Social Justice Blog, made by someone who seems to be ''[[SincerityMode absolutely sincere]]'' about what he's doing. It's a sight to behold.
** slowbeef is now a big fan of [[TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]] just for this reason.
* SoOkayItsAverage: Many of the [=LPers=] riffed on fall into this category.
** This also seems to be slowbeef's feelings towards the WebVideo/GameGrumps, as he's stated that he doesn't have strong feelings one way or the other about Jon and Arin or the show itself. He also said at one point he considered taking the audio from the [[BaseBreaker first episode of their]] [[VideoGame/NaughtyBear Naughty Bear]] LP and putting it over footage of a houseplant with a caption saying, "There, OK?" just to keep people from constantly asking for an RP of them.
* SpecialEffectFailure: Several of the Flash games they've reviewed. The Arise games and Death Trap are particularly noteworthy offenders.
** To elaborate on ''Death Trap'': ''Every single background picture'' looks directly ripped off a 3D art gallery website from the mid 90s. A lit fireplace is displayed in one room at a slight angle. Not only is the fire inside it ''not'' angled, and not only is it tilted incorrectly (so it appears that a second, ''brown'' fire is floating in midair above the first), it is very obviously an animated GIF. In addition, the jump scares are just pictures with slight twitching animations applied to them.
** This is one of the things that angered Chip and Ironicus with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2F6I3k1K7Q Fusion Media Hub]], whose videos include such gems like the fake images on Hugh's TV, poorly done fade outs, the two main guys greenscreening an upside down image of a TV behind them, very poor oompositing, and no attempts to cover up their usage of other people's footage.
** At one point in ''Arise'', they find a drawer full of blood. ''Transparent'' blood.
--->'''Diabetus:''' "Oh my god, it's Crystal Light!"
* TearJerker: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IuCoD-8MWA Mario, Party of One?]]'' Funny commentary aside, this is by far their most upsetting RP, no thanks to [[TheWoobie Joshey164]].
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Initial fan reaction to the "Retsufrash" period of RP. Seems to have died down once it became obvious they weren't going to stop their usual [=RPs=].
** Same could be said by some fans on their series of Longplay [=RPs=] from early 2011 on.

* UglyCute: ''VideoGame/DarkSeed 2'''s Behemoth in its larval form, whom slowbeef and Diabetus affectionately term "Shrimp Baby."
* UncannyValley: The various animations in Newgrounds flashes, such as the weird puppet-people in ''Arrival in Hell'', the incredibly stiff animation in ''The Mike Weiss Show'', or the DerangedAnimation in ''WebAnimation/{{Xin}}''.
** There's also VideoGame/EarnestEvans, with his VideoGame/{{QWOP}}-style animation. One of slowbeef's friends said it best: "Is he supposed to be human?"
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Quite a few characters in games they've riffed on.
** Ted Hartrup/[[InconsistentDub Hadrup]] from the ''Ambition'' series is probably the prime example. His wife left him for the rich owner of a company and took their kids with her: sympathetic. Responding to this by strapping a bomb to yourself and threatening to blow up the building the new guy owns? Assaulting a police officer and escaping custody for no reasonable reason? Generally acting like a complete lunatic but still canonically passing the psyche evaluation? Not so much.
* ValuesDissonance: The ''Jack French'' Episode 2 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDy5Sp5Mx0w Retsufrash]] has an example when Jack talks to the black janitor and what sounds like backing music for a rap song starts playing.
--> '''slowbeef:''' "When I make a video game, I'm gonna make sure my soundtrack matches the ethnicities of my characters. Not racist at all!"
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The duo have this reaction to a Kickstarter game meant to appeal to younger and older gamers... That is based around [[CuteMonsterGirl scantily-clad monster girls]]. [[UnfortunateImplications Made even more concerning]] by the fact that the description outright states that it's an HGame - and while there's a BleachedUnderpants version, it's still pornographic in nature.
-->'''Updates Menu:''' [[TooMuchInformation Added bodily fluids to h-scene]].
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: A few [=LPers=] sound like they're under the influence of something.
** During the [=QueenieZ=] RP, you can clearly hear a ''bong hit'' coming from one of the [=RPers=]' mics (most likely Dave_o due to his slurred speech during the ordeal). Which, given the video in question, is ''quite'' understandable.
** The Creator/ZapDramatic games, ''especially'' anything involving Ted, who has a tendency of throwing around bizarre ImagineSpot graphics whenever he starts waxing poetically about anything. This doesn't even touch on the random and incomprehensible things that happen in the series in general.
*** In the follow up series, ''Sir Basil Pike'' (referred to as "''Ambition Babies''" in their channel) has Janine's bizarre rock sequence.
* TheWoobie: Their general treatment of LetsPlay/BillyMC.
-->'''slowbeef:''' "For the record, [=BillyMC=]: Of all the people we've made fun of, I like you the best, but you are still fucking awful."
** LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} himself during ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4jwRuZzxEE Let's Play Wii Sports Resort Immediately]]''. You can just hear how far the video pushed him toward the brink. Many of the comments show a bit of concern for the man as well.
** Tyler, [=ActionBastard's=] guest in their LP of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9G-JAqOoyE Monster In My Pocket]], almost never gets a word in edgewise while [=ActionBastard=] throws abuse at him for being a bad player. Even slowbeef and Diabetus tell poor Tyler to stand up for himself.
*** Similarly, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeoVHUKvCaQ Mario Kart LP with a VERY SPECIAL GUEST]], slowbeef expresses sympathy for the player (Tingle) while his guest (LetsPlay/TheRealGoldenGamer) rips into him throughout the video.
** A new one is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IuCoD-8MWA Joshey164]]. Despite his [=LP=] of [[MarioParty Mario Party 2]][[note]]which includes such gems such as him mainly rolling low numbers on the board, poor ability to win minigames, occasionally bumping into the camcorder with a bad autofocus, and above all, playing it ''alone''[[/note]] being [=RP'd=] in order to highlight the very depressing nature of it, in the end, the two actually feel incredibly sorry for him and suggest their fans to go over to Josh's video (now deleted) and encourage him. Since then, Josh has undergone a massive ColbertBump with his channel, chock-full of enthusiastically supportive comments. And then he deleted his Mario Party video [[FromBadToWorse and seems to have closed his account.]] He's returned since then however, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhrM-XaBLDo playing Mario Party with other people]].
*** The video, sadly, has again been deleted. Apparently by now, the presence of anyone affiliated with Retsupurae is enough to scare the poor guy off.
** James, the poor guy who had to play through [[ObviousBeta Metroid; Beginings]].
** Mr. DJB, who played and recorded Meet'n'Fuck Kingdom. He later commented that he had a strong urge to delete the uncensored recording from his computer with a sledgehammer.
** [=MegaManNG=], who was unaware that both slowbeef and [=CherryDoom=] were taking potshots at him. This blow has been softened a little by slowbeef and Diabetus saying that they liked the guy, and because [[PetTheDog slowbeef actually congratulated him on reaching 10,000 subscribers]].
** Of all people, ''[=QueenieZ=]'' ended up becoming one. Years after the ''EternalDarkness'' LP, she ''still'' got hate comments and death threats even after she took the LP down, remade it, and apologized for the original. slowbeef and Diabetus were horrified when they found out.[[note]]Her [=YouTube=] account has since been taken down due a copyright claim. Queenie Z used bits of ''Manga/ElfenLied'' in her videos.[[/note]] Read HarsherInHindsight above to feel worse.
** [=AltAlter=], the guy who who played and recorded [[{{Godlimations}} Zombie Inglor,]] deserves a spot here. Not only did he have to go through all of the [[ObviousBeta game's]] [[GameBreakingBug bullshit]], he also had to replay not only [[MarathonBoss a really long boss fight,]] but also the entire game because of a terrible glitch.[[note]][[YankTheDogsChain And he was at the very end too.]][[/note]] It doesn't help that slowbeef didn't even ask him to play the game for him, [[DoingItForTheArt AltAlter decided to play and record it himself just for them.]]
-->'''Diabetus:''' "Get this guy a reward."
