* BadassDecay: Thing do not go very well for the Law after his defeat at the hands of Brian, as well as [[spoiler:being convicted of using an aimbot]]. He basically goes from the most famous gamer in the world to a unmotivated loser.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: At the beginning of the very first episode, Brian is attacked and mugged by a couple of RTS players, who jump on a tandem bicycle and ''fly away on magical rainbow sparkles''.
* {{Bizarro Episode}} : Episode 8 of Season 1. A common complaint is the way-too-fast-pacing. None of this is helped by the fact that the episode doesn't transition smoothly (How does Brian [[spoiler: get expelled and suddenly own someone else's arcade in one day?]]) and as a result, some viewers may try to spend the entire episode trying to figure out if it was a {{Dream Sequence}}.
** To be fair, the extreme abruptness of that episode is very much PlayedForLaughs.
* ClicheStorm: It's the standard high school drama as it's existed since the eighties... ''[[RecycledInSpace but with games]]''!
** However, since it's a parody and an over-the-top WorldofHam, the clichés are also a crucial mechanism of the show's humor.
** {{Lampshade}}d in Season 2 Episode 2, where there is a segment where several characters dress in stereotypical '80s fashion.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Wendell and [=ShotBot=], in Season 2.
** Drift King is also very popular with fans for his LargeHam tendencies and the fact that he's actually a kind person who only wants Ted to join drift racing.
* RealLifeRelative: Real life brothers Freddie and Jimmy play a hilarious father-son dynamic.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Is that "[[Music/HueyLewisAndtheNews The Power of Love]]" starting off season 2?
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Creator/FreddieWong directed it, so you know they're going to be great.
* TheWoobie: Brian, especially in episode 5.
** Episode 9 has a moment too, [[spoiler: due to the subtle implication that he didn't get the girl in the end, no matter how much they both like each other.]] However, that could go either way come Season 2.
*** Ted, somewhat. His father, Freddie Wong, seems to absolutely detest him, despite Ted having nothing but respect for the man.
** Season 2 continues to pile misfortune onto Brian. Not only does he have to deal with [[spoiler:The Law being his new roommate]], but due to the The Law's aimbot scandal, the scholarship Brian used to enroll in VGHS has been discontinued. He now owes over $100k to the school, and is forced to work as a janitor in order to pay off his debt, despite running an entire arcade last season.
