Neil Cicierega provides examples of:
- Arc Words / leitmotif: "All-Star", "Smooth", the Full House theme...at this point, almost no song is sacred from being used in a lot of his mashups.
- Choose Your Own Adventure: "Haircut"
- Darker and Edgier: Bleed with Me Harry
- Distinct Double Album: Mouth Silence and Mouth Sounds, his mashup albums.
- Easter Egg: Mouth Silence is full of carefully hidden "All-Star" references, including an album cover, backwards messages, and even some text in ID 3 tags.
- Entertainingly Wrong: Everything from the Races of Star Trek.
- Limited Animation: The first three minutes of BRODYQUEST, before Adrien Brody becomes a rock star and then becomes the universe (possibly).
- Limited Lyrics Song: Sometimes to the point of Overly Long Gag levels. "Don't need no credit card to ride this train..."
- Mind Screw: Goes without saying.
- Name's the Same:
- Has done a few collaborations with a certain Kevin James... No, not that Kevin James.
- As well as often working with one Ryan Murphy, who is not the creator of Glee and Nip/Tuck. But who is the creator of the original Ben Bernanke video that the song is based on.
- Precision F-Strike: Done a lot lately. See "Knock Knock Knock", "Computer Fighters", "It's the World Wide Web"...
