Catchphrase: Web Original

Hello, I'm the The Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to!

Web originals have catch phrases too. Relax, we're not going to expunge that data.


Examples

  • "NYLOCKE! DRAGON OF THE X!" From TOME
  • "Love ya like a play bro!" is the catch phrase of Andre The Black Nerd.
  • The Angry Video Game Nerd has a few. "What were they thinking?!" is arguably his most famous ones, but his other well known ones include "What a shitload of fuck" and "I am dead fucking serious".
  • The Annoying Orange: "Hey Apple!","Knife."
  • Axe Cop: I WILL CHOP YOUR HEAD OFF!
    • "That was a secret attack."
    • "Shake what your baby gave ya!"
    • "Hi, I'm Mr. Stocker!"
  • "RANDOM GRATITIOUS BREAST SHOT" and "RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST (something/someone)!" from badmovies.org
  • Bowser's Kingdom: Steve has "Hi, guys!" even though he says his never-before-said-onscreen catchphrase is "Who'd taken all the ketchup?" in episode 10
  • In Brad Jones Demo Reel, Admiral Crackers, an old cereal mascot, says "Release The Crackers!".
  • In The Brian And Jill Show, Brian spent the first week asking every person that called in if they're from Fullerton, California. He also has a Signing Off Catch Phrase with "Be good humans."
    • Twenty-five years of morning radio will also cause Brian, much to his annoyance, tell people "Good Morning" from force of habit even though they record well into the afternoon. He's adapted this to "Good morning, afternoon, evening or whenever you're listening."
  • Brett Vanderbrook as Captain S has "Everything gets the Kick" during his first episode. It has been heard in a few other online shows since.
  • From the old CBUB, "Spanked like a four year old at K-Mart" and "Fat skanky redneck chicks". From the new CBUB, "It ends in sex".
  • Chairman Nuke: MOAR LIES!
  • "Cinematography" in the Agony Booth
  • Parodied, along with a few dozen other tropes, in this Cracked original. Rather amusing.
  • The Creatures:
    • Each member has their own, but the word "Brown" is used commonly by all of the Creatures, meaning bad, stinky, or used in place of a curse word. It was first said by Sp00n, but Kootra has since taken it, as he uses it the most. Also, the Creatures have said multiple times that it is in no way racist.
    • "MLG" when describing how good they are at a game (even if they aren't). This pokes fun at Major League Gaming circuits and serious gamers.
    • "I don't follow [X] news." used when someone doesn't know something or is corrected, the original being 'I don't follow Skyrim news'.
    • "Cheese it!" when the Creatures are running away or escaping from something in the game.
    • "High horse" used mostly by Nova, Seamus, and Sly. It's used to describe something that is very large, lavish, and/or over the top.
  • Critikal:
    • He opens most videos with "What's up everybody this is Critikal, I'm playing [game he's playing at the time], this is for [platform]. Let's do this shit!" and he usually ends each video with "Well that's the end of this video, remember to rate the video, comment the video, and subscribe if you want to see videos similar to this one. See ya."
    • "This is the greatest [X] of all time" for his video descriptions, where X is what is being done in the game. Sometimes can be absolutely false depending on the game being played.
  • Stop! Demyx Time!
  • Lampshaded in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog -
    Dr. Horrible: I'm Dr. Horrible. I've got a PhD in horribleness!
    Moist: Is that the new catch phrase?
    • Also NOT Lampshaded by Captain Hammer: "The hammer is my penis."
      • ...and Penny: "Captain Hammer will save us."
  • I'm Dr. Steel, and I'm crazy.
  • Ducktalez: Huey has "Let's go get some ice cream." and Scrooge has "Follow me, before it's too late!"
  • Eat Your Kimchi has several catch phrases that have become popular among fans:
    • I lost my pants, in rippito fippito sippi slowmotion!
    • Soy un Dorito!
    • What the?
  • Dana from Echo Chamber uses the word "suck" a lot. Usually directed at Tom.
  • Eddsworld has several, from more than one character.
    • Tom: Holy X on a Y!
    • Matt: Not the face!
      • Matt: Indubitably.
    • Edd: Pretty swell.
    • Dom: 'Ey hed.
  • Epic Meal Time: "What'you know about x?!"
    • Next time, we eat ''x''.
    • "Next level x maneuver!"
      • (caw)in' smart!
    • "Changing the game!"
    • "Bacon Strips, Bacon Strips..."
    • "...and then you put in the oven, and then you win!"
    • Dribble on that bar-be-que SAUUUUUWWS!
  • "What's happenin' forum?" (=3)
  • Fine Bros Spoilers:
    • "Duuuuuuuhhhh!"
    • "X and Y end up together!" (or don't, largely thanking God for Woody Allen)
    • "Just like in real life! Who would have guessed it?"
    • "X and Y live (sing-songy) HAPPILY ever AFTER!!"
    • "Why the hell are there remakes?!"
    • And the following were added for their Youtube Spoilers!
      • "...aaaaaand it turned out to be fake." or "...Buuuuut some people think it's fake."
      • "Great parenting!"
      • "And we all X at his/her Y (mainly laugh at his/her embarrassment) BECAUSE WE'RE SUCH GREAT PEOPLE!"
      • "QUALITY Internet video!"
  • FPS Russia has a habit of saying "Let's see what we can do" before shooting at things.
    • "Have nice day."
  • Frothy Pint Of Metal always begins with Happy Viking saying "'Sup, heathens!"
  • In the webtoon GEOWeasel the character Mitri once claimed to be "Pretty much everywhere and nowhere, like a ghost or something." In later episodes, his brother would pressure him into saying it again, and then laugh like an idiot and proclaim it to be the funniest line in the world. This was probably a parody or a Take That aimed at several of the toon's fans who thought the line was so funny that they pressured the creator into adding it again.
    • Jimbob also had the Catch Phrase "Fix my saxophone", but it was parodied to the point that it became very irritating to everyone in the cartoon whenever he asked. Weas questioned whether the line was actually supposed to be amusing at all just by repeating it over and over and if it was leading up to anything (to which Jimbob replied cryptically "episode 15"). Later uses of the phrase either had someone stop Jimbob before he could say the whole thing or even ask or he would receive punishment for it (such as Weas shooting him dead in the first episode and stabbing him in the face in the long-awaited episode 15).
  • David Da Nugget is best known for repeatedly screaming "You're not f*cking Tony Abbott mate!" in GI Proz videos.
  • Several of the characters in the Global Guardians PBEM Universe had a Catch Phrase. The most notable were probably Force's "Okay, I want to try something..." right before he did something phenomenally stupid. This was almost always followed up by Recoil's "Great... Force is unconscious again."
  • Golden Book Video Killers:
    • "Greetings, and welcome to Golden Book Video Killers"
    • "Greetings, Golden Book Video Killers fans!"
    • "Chuckimation!"
    • "Well, that's all for now."
    • "Aw crap! This one doesn't have the space logo! What a rip-off!"
    • "AHHHH! The white screen of death!"
  • Lumpy from Happy Tree Friends always says "Mmm hmm" after he thinks he's done something right.
  • In How It Should Have Ended, Batman has, "Because I'm BATMAN!"
    • Also, whenever he sees an attractive woman, he asks, "Wanna know my secret identity?"
  • Spoofed a few times on Homestar Runner. In Strong Bad's "crazy cartoon" "Sweet Cuppin' Cakes", the character of Eh! Steve seems to exist only to say his Catch Phrase, which is also his name ("Eh! Steve!"). At the end of the Strong Bad Email "the facts", Homestar says he's decided to change his Catch Phrase from "Seriously" to "That's bupkis!" Strong Bad used to say "Holy Crap!" with some regularity, as well, but due to inverse-Flanderization, he's been weaned off that aspect of his personality, and now groans whenever the word 'crap' comes up in an email.
    • Although he then began regularly yelling "DELETED" as he did so to many of the e-mails he was sent.
    • Parodied again with the Cheat Commandos, whose original Catch Phrase was "Cheat Commandos... rock rock on!"
      Silent Rip: Uh... that's not what we usually say -
      Gunhaver: (the Cheat Commandos theme music stops abruptly) Yeah, whatever, it's riggidy-roll from now on.
    • Parodied again with "Limozeen ...But They're In Space!", in which manager Teeg Dougland starts every sentence with "I'm afraid I have some bad news, boys."
    • And who could forget Teen Girl Squad's "Soooooooooooooooo good!", as well as Tompkin's characteristic Unusual Euphemism, "Awwww, peas!"
    • Bubs' alter ego, "The Thnikkaman," has several that either he says or are associated with him.
      Kids: "Can we have some?"
      The Thnikkaman: "Yeah, shut up, kid!"
      Or:
      Singers: "Here comes the Thnikkaman!" (When he leaves, it's "There goes the Thnikkaman!")
    • According to Homestar, Coach Z uses "You can't always rush into the score zone!" as a metaphor for everything.
    • Also, a standard call-and-response for private eye, crooked cop, secret agent, and celebrity pharmacist Dangeresque:
      Reynaldo: Sounds pretty dangerous!
      Dangeresque: No, sounds... Dangeresque!
      • "Looks like I'm gonna have to jump!"
  • Husky Starcraft: "Hello everyone, this is H-to-the-usky Husky here!"
  • Barry "The Blender" Henderson from the online Irish comedy series I Am Fighter has "What about you?". The phrase is (somewhat obscure northern) Irish slang for "How are you"? Of course, since the series has become so widely recognised in Ireland (moreso in the the North), the phrase has exploded in popularity. Barry's thick culchie accent makes it sound more like "Whadda boutchee?". It's frequently shortened to "Boutchee?", even by the man himself.
    • And its variants:
      • Ra-ra-radaboutchee?
      • Whadda fuckin' boutchee?
      • Boutchee?
      • Whadda boutchee? Or, to our friends watching in Japan: *bows* Wharra boutcheeeeee?
    • He also has "Got my good friend Thomas Smythe here. Say hello to the camera, Thomas."
      • "Awrigh?"
    • A more minor one is that both of them frequently refer to a fight as a "Real life altercation".
    • "I'M ONLY PULLIN' YOUR FUCKIN' PISHER!" was used in the fifth and final episodes (for the curious, it means "Just kidding").
    • He loves it. He loves it.
      • Nothing. Fuck all from him. He loves it, though. He loves it.
  • IGSRJ has a handful of them.
    "WHOA!"
    "Oh!"
  • "Is this based on a book?" in imdb.com
  • Is It A Good Idea To Microwave This has several stock phrases which are usually parodied, the most famous of which being:
    Here at the Jory Caron Microwave Laboratory, safety is a number one priority. That's why we hide behind this giant tin foil shield, it's to protect our nuts, because nobody likes roasted nuts.
  • From Jacks Films, since Your Grammar Sucks #1, he's used the word "biches" to refer to his fans. In fact, a lot of his Catch Phrases originated from Your Grammar Sucks.

    • The Hymn of One: "The Hymn of One is fun!"
  • "HI, INTERNET!"
  • Marek vs. Wyshynski: "Let's start the show, proper, shall we?", a result of the show's tradition to stretch their cold open for as long as possible.
  • Melee's End has a few, most notably Fox's "I'm Starfox" at the end of any badass statement, complete with dramatic zoom.
  • From the Mortal Kombat parody sprite cartoon:
  • My Lifeis Average: "I think we know who won"; "Well played, ______. Well played"; "I regret nothing."

  • Nikki and John: Pranksters in Love - John frequently starts off videos by saying "What's going on guys, John here." and Nikki usually responds to getting pranked with "Are you f*cking kidding me right now?" At the end of videos, if John was pranked, a sound byte of John saying "Nikki, what did you do?!?!?" will play, while if Nikki was pranked, a sound byte of Nikki saying "Well that's just great!" will play.
  • Larry Oji, co-host of game music podcast Nitro Game Injection, has a few of these.
    • "It's super badass!"
    • "Rollin' on dubs!"
    • "This week's episode of Nitro Game Injection is sponsored by (insert food product here.)"
      • You could argue KyleJCrb has a few of these, too.
      • "Keep it here, this is Nitro Game Injection."
      • Doubles as a Shout-Out: Whenever game remixer VikingGuitar is mentioned, Kyle can't help but say "he's a cop, you idiot!" Because, well, he is.

Also, when doing her Radu impression, she'll usually have at least one exclamation of, "Aw, damneet!"
      • Diamanda Hagen has HAIL HAGEN!
