* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: While Mr. Welch is clearly a Loonie, there are plenty of cases where the rules seem simply designed to insure the GM can railroad the campaign. For example:
-->410. If the NPC is on the cover of the rulebook, I can't kill him.
* CrazyAwesome: Can you imagine dealing with just ''one'' of the situations he's barred from?
* GeniusBonus:
-->1189. A stagehand does not get a better sneak bonus than ninjas. [[note]]The Western concept of the ninja comes from Eastern stagehands: both are completely clad in black.[[/note]]
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Entry 132 is ''"There is no such feat called 'Death Blossom'"''. In ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', Death Blossom is the name of Reaper's [[LimitBreak ultimate attack]].
** Entries 171 ''("My character's dying words are not allowed to be 'Hastur, Hastur, Hastur.'")'' and 336 ''("Cannot start a Cthuhlu character with a pre-existing hatred of books, altars and cutlery.")'' were both written before the story of Fanfic/OldManHenderson was posted.
** Kerillian from [[VideoGame/TheEndTimesVermintide Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide]] is an elf with a Scottish accent, which Mr. Welch is forbidden from playing.
--> 188. I cannot play an elf with a Scottish accent, nor a Cajun dwarf.
** Entry 958, prohibiting him from using shotgunchucks, has become even more hilarious since Sun Wukong from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has been shown to use shotgunchucks.
** Any ''VideoGame/SevenDaysToDie'' player will get a giggle out of Entry 1483 (''There is more to stopping a zombie horde than punji pits'') since punji pits ''are'' the best way to stop a zombie horde.
** #2005 is "Can't just program the probe droid to [[RammingAlwaysWorks go to light speed through the Star Destroyer]]." ''Film/TheLastJedi'' involves a maneuver that's pretty much just that, [[spoiler:except it's a rebel cruiser making a HeroicSacrifice]]. And since the ''Star Wars'' movies don't have a DM banning CuttingTheKnot, it works and ends up slicing the Star Destroyer ([[spoiler:Supreme Leader Snoke's craft]]) in half.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Many of the DM's complaints about having to look things up sound less reasonable in the day of smartphones.
* UnintentionallySympathetic / UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: A number of cases imply that the rest of the players thought Mr. Welch's idea was fine, but the DM nixed it anyway.
-->452. Not allowed to convince the entire party to base the group only off Gary Oldman characters.
