Super Mario Bros. to F-Zero GX
Super Mario Bros.
- I think logic is thrown out the window.
- I know the goombas!
- It's ruined!
- Koopa Jump Kill
- Hug the Buzzy Beetles
- Mousetrap! Yahtzee!
- Damn you Lakitu!
Mega Man 2

- Their theory of what happens when Flash Man and Wood Man did a fusion dance: Flash Your Wood Man
No More Heroes
- In part 12, when Ryan and Johnny find out that Lewis has never seen Rocky.
- In part 10 of No More Heroes, Ryan goes out of his way to use all of the fire extinguishers while not on fire. Lewis gets angry at this.
Lewis: I freaked out on Johnny for the whole Hadoken thing in Mega Man X, but this is more infuriating because it has no point!
Donkey Kong Country
- The fact that Big Al (their first guest ever) didn't appear until the last part of the playthrough. Basically, the concept of guest commentators appeared right the fuck out of nowhere and put everyone in a state of "What?". Professionalism indeed.
Mega Man X
- IT'S STORM EAGLE!!
- Failure to Hadoken any Mavericks, but succeeding in Hadokening Sigma's Dog and his first form only, to which Lewis is taken aback from the sudden success.
Sonic Adventure 2: Battle
- Lewis's usage of the overused line, "Long time no see".
Lewis: (as Tails) Hey Mr. President! Long time no see.Lewis: (as the President) But we never met before!Lewis: (as Tails) But long time no see! That really is a long time.
- Lewis describing Rouge's car in part 18.
- Lewis questions the name of the ARK. Ryan's suggested answer: "It's an Act of Random Kindness?" This makes the whole group crack up. Bonus points for an "act of random kindness" being remarkably in-character for Gerald Robotnik before he went insane.
- Applying Mr. Ed's voice to The Biolizard.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time
- The numerous references to a certain internet meme every time Leonardo gets frozen... before Spax ruins the moment.
- In Part 5, the guy who played as Michelangelo decides to casually stand still for almost a whole minute while the others attack him for his incompetence. Hilarity Ensues.
Lewis: I just get the image of someone arguing with his mother on the other end of that player there.Johnny: Either that or he really had to go take a shit.
Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels
- Lewis freaks out at World 9. No, really. His reaction to the underwater Lakitus must be heard to be believed.
- Part FAIL. Just... Part FAIL.
- It's even better with annotations on.
- The fire porn gag, which completely baffled Johnny.
Johnny: How do you fuck fire?!?
- In part 8, when Lewis couldn't see the video because of a YouTube bug, Ryan and Johnny take the opportunity to play around with what they were seeing in the video.
Johnny: Well, sucks for you. Back to Mario with the hookers!
Mega Man 3
- Ryan grinding for weapon energy at one part in the play-through, and intentionally leaving the work he had to put in the game. As he put it: "If I have to suffer playing through this part of the game, you have to suffer watching it!"
- It starts off mildly entertaining, but eventually becomes totally aggravating. Eventually, Lewis dives into insanity, going as far as to hallucinate drawing magic. Meanwhile, Johnny just expresses his growing boredom with the subtlety of a flying sledgehammer.
- Lewis' reaction to Doc Robot copying Airman's powers, with Ryan once again editing in Airman ga Taosenai.
Ryan: *As the boss door is entered* "We have a surprise~! Guess what Doc Robot does~?"*Air Man descends from the heavens, as the aforementioned Leitmotif chimes in.**Beat*
- The team (along with Big Al) tearing apart the "touching" ending with such lines as "Team Rocket's blasting off again!" (Big Al) "Twinkle." (Ryan), "Hewpoe you bastard/liar." (Lewis), "I regret nothing!" (Big Al), and "Suckality." (Johnny). Other lines like this follow suit.
- Lewis furthers this claim by munching on chips during Klonoa's banishment.
- Johnny pointing out that the Final Boss of the game looks like Grimace from the McDonald's commercials.
- PONTS-KOOPEE!!! And the various phrases that drove Johnny up a wall.
- Big Al's weird dream involving pie and lube.
- Ryan chastising his past self for getting lost in Vision 6-1.
- At the end of the game, a book closes with the player's name on it as the author.
Ryan: Apparently I wrote this, cause my name's under it.Johnny: Ryan, this is a horrible story.
Star Fox 64
Sonic 3 and Knuckles
Sonic & Tails Playthrough
- Lewis gets absolutely fed up with Ryan's repeated failure at finding Special Stage rings.
- Ryan fails at Lava Reef Act 2. Repeatedly. This leads to yet another instance of the "It's STORM EAGLE" gag.
- Ryan quotes Dragon Ball Z before using Hyper Sonic to royally own Knuckles.
- Johnny saying "Oh no" in the same deadpan unemotional way Knuckles says it in Sonic Adventure with every hit Super Sonic gets on him.
Johnny: Oh no. Oh no. Oh no. Oh no.
- Johnny saying "Oh no" in the same deadpan unemotional way Knuckles says it in Sonic Adventure with every hit Super Sonic gets on him.
- Through the magic of clipping, Lewis gets murdered by a ring box in Mushroom Hill Zone. It should be noted that if Lewis had broken the ring box, he would have gotten an extra life.
- Lewis's kleptomania earns him a much higher score than a lot of people would've had from playing the game. Oddly enough, neither Ryan nor Johnny are amused or impressed.
- Giving the Beatnik and Rastafarian Knuckles twins (from Johnny's End of Month of Sonic 2) the names of Junkles and Knuckers.
Resident Evil 4
- Lewis remembering Yuji Naka's final words on American soil thanks to Saddler during a codec conversation with Leon.
Saddler: Do you REALLY believe I would trust an American?Lewis: I think that's what Yuji Naka said when he left America.BSC: *Cry in laughter*Lewis: Come on guys, it's not that funny.Johnny: (trying to calm down his laughter) I know, but I can just imagine Yuji Naka actually saying that.
- In part 21 of the Resident Evil 4 playthrough, Johnny forgets to edit out the part where he changes his Wii remote's batteries, with Lewis coming up with odd answers as to what the hell Ashley is giving Leon.
- Lewis's attempt to sing during a ladder climb, in which Johnny plays the song in sync with him.
Lewis: SNAKE EATER!!!
- And when they decide to sing the song backwards: EAT THE SNAKE!!!
- Again, Lewis replying to one of Johnny's lines during the "midget Napoleon battle".
Johnny: Can you make it over here, Leon?Lewis: (In an incredibly bored voice) Um yeah, get a load of this.
Johnny: No way, I can't believe this!Lewis: Timing...
- Later, 10-15 seconds after the boss dies.
- Ted's introduction to the commentary and group, seemingly left in the dark as the game was underway.
Ted: What going on?
- A nice dialogue between the team that is kicked off by Ryan's utterance of Queef:
Lewis: I always have Ashley do that. (referring to turning the crank)Johnny: What, queef?Lewis: No, no, no. I was referring to turning the crank. By the way, what is a queef? Isn't that some kind of flatulence?Johnny: Yeah, it's a pussy-fart.
- In part 23, Lewis and Johnny were making a Sonic Adventure joke which Ryan then explains what they were specifically referencing from that game, which then cuts to a Simpsons clip of McBain saying, "That's the joke."
- And of course, the transcribe audio part.
- "Resident Evil" is somehow transcribed as "great seeing you"
- "What in Ronald racquel"
- In Part 28, another Chainsaw Guy shows up to attack Leon, and promptly gets stuck in a wall trying to get to him. The guys have a field day with this.
Lewis: Resident Evil 4: The zombies are faster! The zombies are... smarter?Johnny: We have zombies who can run through walls, and we have zombies who think they can run through walls!
- Part 38 has Johnny throw away magnum bullets to make room for another item, causing Lewis to ramble on in shock over how Johnny threw away something extremely rare and valuable and not combining herbs to make more room, even though Johnny didn't have a magnum in the first place. Lewis gets annoyed again later on when he sees Johnny combine herbs to make room for something and refuses to pick up the magnum bullets that were nearby. Johnny simply laughed at Lewis' anguish due to his massive kleptomania.
- Lewis' Igor impression in Part 43 about the fate of the children of the village.
Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
- The creation of Silver's nickname: Pothead the Porcupine.
Clement: Who're you?Lewis: I am Pothead the Porcupine! *everyone starts laughing* His head looks like marijuana-colored-white.Clement: After I smoke a J, I will destroy you!
- Johnny's first reaction to Pothead the Porcupine's nickname should get a special mention as well.
- The guys' reaction when Silver tosses Sonic through a ring and Sonic clips through the building. Lewis then spends the next four minutes exploring the (fully coded) hub world.
Lewis: Watch. He throws me through one of my rings and I survive. But, not only did he throw me through one of my rings, he threw me through the invisible wall! I am outside the boss fight!
Johnny: Oh my god. OH. MY. GOD.
Ryan: And all the bridges are invisible now.
Johnny: What the hell?
Lewis: The bridge graphics aren't there but the bridge's coding is, so you can walk on 'em.
Lewis: I swear to god I did not mean for this to happen.
Lewis: I was trying to show off the glitch where you get cornered in a wall just right and you break the game because you keep getting knocked into a ring and you literally can't escape.
Johnny: YOU ESCAPED THE BOSS FIGHT!! YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO DO THAT!
Johnny: Look, they actually programmed space! As if they knew you were going to do this!
- This ended inevitably when Lewis tried to suicide but Silver launched Sonic to the moon instead.
- This bit from part 3
(Everyone bursts out laughing)Johnny: Oh my.Lewis: Rated E for Everyone!Johnny: Question mark?
- The annotation in part 12:
Apologies for the blurtastic quality. Solaris accidentally deleted his source files and had to re-download them from Youtube. He has committed seppuku for his idiocy.
- Being launched to the moon definitely counts as this. However, it is later topped by tablerape.
Lewis: SUPER MACHINE GUN TABLE ATTACK! *grabs several chairs as Silver and tosses them at Sonic*Johnny: Jesus Christ!Clement: It's rape! It's rape in boss form!Lewis: With chairs. *finishes Sonic off*Everyone: *is cracking up*Johnny: Oh my God! Jeez!Clement: Murder... absolute murder...Johnny: You know, I didn't think it was possible to beat shooting him to the moon, but... god damn...Lewis: Why do we need Sonic to save the world again?Clement: Ohhh... that was a genius way to end it...
- Lewis continues being a klepto, leading to one memorable instance where he repeatedly manages to off himself (and also waste a lot of time) in a series of futile attempts to get one Silver Medal. The rest of the gang can't decide whether or not they should find this amusing.
- In Part 16, Lewis has several hilarious failures, including accidentally grinding the ENTIRE length of a grind-rail backwards without noticing whatsoever.
- "Perfectly positioned for a victory shot!"
- In Part 38, Lewis wastes a fair bit of time to improve game score to earn a better rank in the level. Five seconds into part 39, he pilots the vehicle right into the water, causing him to die and lose his score. Ryan got pissed off as a consequence.
- "SONIC X. IS. CANON!"
- All of the Dan Green stuff whenever Mephiles is onscreen.
Shadow: Who are you?Ryan as Mephiles: I'M DAN GREEN!Ryan as Mephiles after Omega has blasted him a few times: YOU CANNOT KILL DAN GREEN!Johnny as Omega: Maybe he's right...Clement as Mephiles: Very well then, Shadow, it's time to d-d-d-d-d-DUEL!
- At the beginning of the last story:
Solaris: Now witness my birth.
- Johnny shits on the ending with this:
Johnny: And as Sonic stares at the full moon he wonders: "Why isn't it blown in half?"Lewis: We retconned that, too!
Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
- Lewis's klepto moments (and the increasing exasperation of Ryan and Johnny) make for one hell of a running gag.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
- Johnny manages to repeatedly impale himself at Oil Ocean. Lewis and Ryan are rather amused.
- Johnny's satisfaction with speeding through Slicers in Metropolis Zone as Super Sonic.
Johnny: "Yeah! Where's your god now, you Mother Fucker?!"
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
- When Ryan dies to Fire Man, Clement comments on how he looks like he scored a touchdown, with Johnny imagining Fire Man doing a Charleston to boot!
- Johnny's reaction to Lewis's roboticized Namekian trees line.
- In part 1, when Ryan fails a dropping platform section and Mega Man drops like a rock.
- Lewis calling Ice Man "the Ice Climber dude"
- In the beginning of the Dr Wily fight, Ryan kills himself by jumping into the Wily Machine. Granted he was worn down by the earlier boss rush.
- This gives Clement the image of Mega Man hitting his head against the machine and falling unconscious.
- Their reaction to "Yuukichan's Papa"
Super Mario 64
- The point in the very first video where Lewis drops a Sonic reference. The other guys treat it like he's committed the ultimate sin.
- And then Ryan does the same thing two videos later, Johnny acting like it was the first time it happened.
- Ryan's reaction to realizing that updating his homebrewed Wii has made it impossible for him to complete his 100% run.
- Lewis's reaction to Ryan singing the first few bars of "A Whole New World" from Aladdin after Lewis says, "Cue the damn Aladdin song..." when he noticed that Mario was riding on top of a magic carpet in Rainbow Ride during part 19.
- This bit when Lewis was explaining why the Bowser Stages from Mario 64 felt the most right.
Lewis: ...his name was Jump Man for a reason. Not Trial-and-Error-Taser-Treasure-Chest-Puzzle-Man, not Pump Man, JUMP MAN!Ryan: He was in Mega Man 10 damn it!Lewis: I know, but apparently he was also in Super Mario Sunshine.
- To add more hilarity, a YouTuber commented that Mario would turn into Hump Man when Peach is rescued.
- Part 8, they speak about Miyamoto's opinions on cats, saying that they're like women. Cats are weird. Cats are like girls. If they come up to you, it's all great. But if you go to them, things don't end so well. Doubles as Hilarious in Hindsight for Super Mario 3D World.
- During the stage where Mario gains access to the Invisibility Cap, Lewis goes on a rant about how useless he thinks the item and the level are. Ryan interrupts him to note that the fast-paced Yakkety-Sax-esque music goes very well with his ranting.
- The gang getting so bored that they resort to reading ingredient labels to entertain themselves. Complete with randomly inserted clips from Animaniacs!
- Lewis eventually looks around his room to see what he could read and ends up reading "the-horrifying the-thing-that-shouldn't-be-named."
- Ryan, during a track in outer space, begins singing Jews In Space, in which he explains that he is Jewish and therefore the joke is appropriate.
- Johnny suddenly plays the PokéRap.
- He suddenly realizes that his mom is looking for the meatloaf.
- As early as Part 2, they discuss Tetris in LittleBigPlanet.
- Ryan and Johnny thinking of reasons our Lord and Savior Captain Falcon would kill any followers.
Johnny: I noticed you didn't go to church last Sunday!fifteen seconds laterJohnny: I saw you take that quarter from that charity basketRyan: You didn't read the newsletter on the bulletin boardJohnny: What seems petty to you is blasphemous to me!
- The discussion of how epic Captain Falcon would be if he was a god. Chasing people down in his racecar to punish them rather than smiting them.
- Pretty much everything Lewis says throughout the entire commentary, especially Part 13. For just one example:
Johnny Wait...did we lose Lewis?Lewis No I am still here. I'm not watching the video.Johnny bursts out laughingLewis I can hear it playing in the background but quite frankly Hellfire Comms' TV Tropes page is just so much more interesting.Proceeds to read out an entry from their "/Funny" Entry, accompanied with laughs from Lewis and Johnny

- "Also, I'm on fire."
Batman: Arkham Asylum
- In part 17, the video experiences the Fake Screen Crashing included in the game, then an actual video crash. For the rest of the part, Ryan instead plays a bit of Adam West Batman while playing Benny Hill music. Needless to say, this has the other two commentators in stitches.
- Within the same part, a small bit of Ho Yay between Lewis and the Joker:
Joker: Say goodnight, Bats!Lewis: Aw come on! How about dinner and a drink first?
- Lewis gets strangely turned on as he hears Harley Quinn stating that she's gonna spank Warden Sharp.
- As noted by Ryan during the second TV Tropes reading, the added music during the following parts because of a sound malfunction, including Joker's Theme from the Animated Series, and the Adam West Batman Theme Song that interrupts it solely because of a combat section. Moments after the last enemy is knocked out, the music returned to the Joker's Theme.
Pokemon: Yellow Version
- Johnny's reaction to Ted naming his Pikachu after him
Johnny: You made me a fucking yellow rat?Ted: It's better than- (coughs)Johnny: You named me after a yellow rat!!Ted: Well in my HeartGold thing, you're some weird giraffe sheep...thing. *Johnny: Well that's no fucking better!

- And of course, the joke everyone was waiting for:
On-Screen text (After catching Mewtwo): So, are we done now? Nope. (Footage of Exand battling a Seaking rolls)Ryan: FUCK YEAH SEAKING!
- Here's something from part 5 that was pretty funny:
Johnny: (addressing to Ted) You know what? I poke fun at you for not getting the "Koffing" and "Weezing" reference until late, but you know what? It took me a while to realize that Ekans and Arbok was "snake" and "kobra" backwards.Ryan: And Arbok is misspelled because poor literacy is kool.Johnny: *Chuckles**beat*Ted: Meanwhile, what's Muk spelled backwards?Johnny: *breaks out laughing*Ryan: *laughs*Ryan: (to Johnny) Bet you'll never look at that Pokémon the same way again.Johnny: *laughs harder*Johnny: I'm booting up my DS now.

Ryan: Angst, angst, fox, angst.Lewis: Sadness, more angst. Oh, a penny. (Sonic then runs past in front of Tails)Ryan: And now it's gone.Johnny: He took my penny, that was my penny! Hey! I'm talking to you! I didn't think he heard me. I'm gonna chase that fucker. (Tails begins following Sonic smiling) My penny! Gimme back my penny! It was mine!Lewis: I saw it first!!Johnny: HEY!

Lewis: Short and consistent is better than long and tedious.Gareth: Yeah. That's what I tell my wife every night.

Ryan: Hey look, there's the sign post! *Tornado carries goal post away, prompting Ryan to sing Trololo*Lewis: That tornado's carrying a goal post!

- In that same part, Johnny also plays the following tracks: Can You Feel The Sunshine and Regal Ruin, and Stalker (the music from block 2 of Castlevania 1).
- On Part 17 around 12:50, Johnny's minor breakdown at figuring out how to solve the puzzle that Naryman and LewisParadox are failing to see right in front of their faces is a pretty good one.
- In part 19, Ryan and Lewis are trying to destroy some turrets in order to continue the puzzle, what happens at the 4:46 mark must be seen to be believed.
Pokemon: Crystal Version
- Encountering "The King of Carp. MAGIKARP! DOAOAOAAAH!!!!"
- Johnny isn't too thrilled with Ted naming a Heracross after him.
Ryan: Hey, look, Johnny! You get to be a fighting bug!Johnny: You're fucking kidding me?!Ted: Hey, you're a badass!Johnny: First, a yellow rat and now I'm a fucking beetle?!Ted: 1 HP left. Shit...Johnny: I better be a fucking legendary next gen!! On a generation I don't give a shit about, ironically.
- When facing Bruno's Hitmonlee:
Ted: (to Ryan when sending out Haunter) Can you take down Bruce Lee?Ryan: (makes Funny Bruce Lee Noises)Johnny: That's great but can you take down Bruce Lee?Ryan: I just did!
Ryan: Goddamn it! Why is he farting at me?
- And when Hitmonlee used Swagger:
- The entire Lt. Surge battle. From the callback to the Yellow Commentary (Nyeeeeeeh), to the use of Street Fighter 4's version of Guile's Theme as the background music for any Pokémon that's not Electrode, at which point it changes to the original Guile Theme.
- Just the idea of Jason Voorhees singing THAT song about his favorite day of the week.
- Anything involving the Pokémon Fan Club President and his Rapidash.

Ryan (as Raikou): Greetings, Pokémon trainer. I am here to give you your biggest challenge yet of catching a roaming legendary that can also remove you from battle. Causing this, the greatest challenge of catching Pokémon ever invented!Ryan (as the Trainer): Master Ball, go!Ryan and Johnny (as Raikou): Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!
- Johnny imitating Raikou trying to struggle to get out of the ball seconds after said Call-Back.
- Johnny's Anchorman Reference: His ideal marriage to some girl named Veronica in the middle of Mt. Silver.
- The return of Fuck Yeah, Seaking!
- The many marijuana jokes made during the Erika battle.
- The battle against Blaine had a particularly good one regarding a certain Running Gag:
- Johnny: Oh... NO!Ryan: (as the Pokémon Fanclub President) Hey guys I told you that you'd get to see my Rapidash-dash-dash
- Johnny's little rant after Ted decides to go through the final dungeon without using Flash is quite funny.
- Johnny: I know that one day, Veronica and I are going to get married on top of a mountain. And there's going to be flutes playing and trombones and garlands of herbs. And we will dance until the sun rises, and our children will form a family band and we will tour the countryside and YOU WON'T BE INVITED!
Kirby's Dream Land
- Castle Lololo-lololo-lololo...
- In part 2, during the boss rush, Johnny tells a story about one of his old jobs and how he was inspecting a milkshake machine and when he found the problem, said, "Well here's the problem: too many toasters." in the Hotel Mario voice. The crew's reactions to it are incredible.
Mario Kart 64
- One of the first lines is Johnny lamenting on how the crew learned nothing from the F-Zero GX run of the same genre.
- At around twenty seconds into the video, Johnny starts to read Pepsi ingredients off a bottle to "Get it out of the way".
Johnny: Well, I better get started now. Let's see, Pepsi. Carbonated water. High fructose corn syrup. Caramel colored sugar. Phosphoric acid. Caffeine. Citric acid.
- At the end of Johnny's rant, Lewis shouts "Greenly", calling back to the GX playthrough.
- Ryan tells the crew about the comic he read on DuelingAnalogs where Cloud and Sephiroth are playing basketball, only to end with Sephiroth murdering Aerith. The sheer change in storyline from the comic had the other commentators laughing.
- Found here for quick reference.
- In part 4, we have this when arguing about Super Mario 3D Land:
Ted: You're the only person I've talked to that hasn't liked this game, everybody else I've talked said they're.. (interrupted by Ryan and Johnny)Johnny: Cause they're wrong!Ryan: Cause they're babies!Ted: They must have been older than I am.Lewis: Hi, Heavy Weapons Guy!
- In part 3, Lewis complains that Wario Stadium has too much brown, causing Ryan to say that Nintendo predicted the future of gaming.
- Ted later says it's still better than Call of Duty.
Mega Man X3
- Bilzzard Biffalo (in the Playstation version, Blizzard Buffalo's name is misspelled as "Bilzzard Buffalo").
- "Hm, I'll try going to the left, nope nope, go to the right, oh nope I'll try the left again, nope back to the right, let's try the right again." (Many of the Mavericks have a "dash left or right" mode of fighting, with projectiles or other attacks sprinkled in sometimes.)
- The many weather-related jokes at Dr. Doppler's expense.
- Ted's god-awful puns involving Bit, Byte, and Vile, and his singing the "Captain America's mighty shield" song during the first Sigma battle.
- How Johnny handles the end game boss rush: By editing it into a montage where he hits each one once and they immediately explode, set to a certain song by The Lonely Island about explosions.
- Sigma's second form has an attack that Ted interprets as spray-painting the wall, which Johnny admits was better than his suggestion of the Orbital Friendship Beam.
- In the ending where it says that "To save mankind, X must destroy Zero". The group wonders what possibly would give X that idea. And during the credits, where X and Zero are running together, they joke that what is really happening is that X tried to kill Zero, and Zero is chasing X because of it.
- Their comments during the character portraits part of the credits: "Who are you?"; "Why do you exist?"; "Hey, it's Heracross"; "Douche"; "Asshole"; etc.
Mega Man 7

"In the year 20XX"*Dr. Wily looming above Earth*Johnny: Doctor Wily grew several thousand feet tall!*changes to Mega Man battling Wily Machine 6*Johnny: And now he's normal again.*Mad grinder notices the screen, looks at it, and fires his flamethrower*Johnny: Aaahhhh! He discovered the player!
- After beating Freeze Man in Part 1, Clement gives us this gem:

- Anything involving the Mettool Channel
Ted: Oh no! We can't watch the Mettool Channel now! Bass, you will pay for this with your life!(later, when Dr. Wily appears on-screen)Ted: (as Dr Wily) You'll be watching the Dr. Wily Channel now!
- After Bass wrecks Dr. Light's lab:
- During the fight with Burst Man in Part 1, the following jokes were made:
Ted: "Well, I'm afraid I'm going to have to burst your Bubble, Man!" *cue boos from other commentators*Johnny: "Oh, my balls!"Johnny: "Jesus Christ, how many testicles does this guy have?"Ryan: "Too fucking many."Ted: "More than me."
- Right off the bat in part 2, Johnny refers to Junk Man looking constipated on the boss selection screen.
Later in the part, whenever Junk Man is selected:Johnny: "Junk Man. He's going to show you his junk."
- Upon entering Turbo Man's stage in Part 3, Clement makes a comment about Turbo Man looking like what Arnold Schwarzenegger was going after in Jingle All The Way.
- During the boss fight with Turbo Man, Johnny gives this bit of black humor:
Johnny: "D.U.I. That's its weakness."
- In Part 4, the group do a singalong to the Brentalfloss version of Ghosts 'n Goblins whenever they enter Shade Man's stage.
- Revealing the secret area in Slash Man's stage:

Mega Man, what are you doing?!Paranoia Sonik: Fuck, Smokey the Bear's gonna kill me now.Johnny: Oh wait, he's dead... because I already set him on fire.
- Replacing Protoman's theme with an impromptu version of the theme to the Andy Griffith Show.
- All the times they start singing, especially the 90's X-Men theme when selecting Slash Man and the Jurassic Park theme in Slash Man's stage.
- "I'm afraid I'm gonna have to burst your Bubbleman."
- Within the first 90 seconds of Part 5, there's this:

- This exchange in Wily Castle 2:
ParanoiaSonik: "It makes Frozen Flame Dicks."Ryan: "Freezy Flame Dicks."Johnny: "I shall make it a candy. NEW Freezy Flame Dicks!"Ryan: "What you need is a dick of an afternoon. We've been making our Freezy Flame Dicks since 1824."
- In Part 6, whenever the infamously hard Wily fight is finished
ParanoiaSonik: "Engrish, Wily. Do you speak it, motherfucker?"
The Legend of Zelda
- Ted dies an unexpectedly large amount of eight times in part one alone, some deaths not even a minute apart.
- In part 2 of the play through, after Ted meets the old woman that sells potions, one of the commentators compares her to Santa Claus because of the look of her sprite, causing everyone to burst in laughter.
- Matthew's scenario of a "heal-job" gone awry:
Matt: (As Bo Rt) Oh BABY! What's your name?Matt: (As Error) I AM ERROR!
- Lewis, as stated in the Only Sane Man entry, is a nut for pointing out logic deconstruction in games; however, in part 2, in an ironic turn of events, he got confused as to how fire hurt Bo Rt when Ted made him walk into it.
Matt: Lewis, Lewis, fire hot. Remember that fire is hot.
- This is more due to Lewis wondering why the fire from the lantern would hurt the user.
- The introduction to part 2, where Lewis welcomes the viewers back:
Lewis: Once again, our dear friend Ted is trying to beat the monsters by slamming his face into them.Matt (though mumbled): That's right Ted, block with your face!
- Ted stops to set up a new recording in the Legend of Zelda playthrough, performing a jump-cut in the process. However, he already established that a jump-cut means that he is looking at a strategy guide to beat the game. When he does this in-front of dungeon 3, absolutely nobody believed him and Matt claimed that Ted got lost on the way to dungeon 3 when he was two feet away from it.
Ted: I don't get it, what are you guys claiming?Matt: That you paused the game and gave us a jump-cut right before dungeon 3. You got lost two feet away from dungeon 3!
- Johnny's repeated exasperated cry of Ted's name whenever Ted dies or unbelievably screws up while playing.
- Matt in general; he has been keeping the fans laughing their asses off, and they also want him in another commentary afterward.
- This little gem from Part four:
Matt: Johnny and I were playing Majora's Mask by ourselves, and I told him: Look, if you're not comfortable with the aliens, then I'll do it... and then I end up getting her abducted. After that, all day Johnny would look at me and say ROMANI!!!
- Matt makes an accusation about their love lives. Ted steps up to defend them. Ryan shoots them down.
Matt: That's probably why you don't have a girlfriend...Ted: Hey! How do you know that? For all you know I could have a girlfriend of my own and you wouldn't know!Ryan: Ted, you make commentaries over video games.
- Ryan shouting "I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!" whenever Ted tries to defend himself.
- Matt bragging about how easy Digdogger is and that nobody should die to him, ending with Ted dying to Digdogger right at the end of his speech.
- Ted constantly going back to dungeon five repeatedly.
Ryan: I've never seen anybody spend so much time trying to get OUT of the dungeon.
- Matt holding Johnny to different standards than he does to poor ol' Ted:
Johnny: I'm saying that you're having no problem with Ted killing everything on the screen, but you call me the fucking sociopath on our Let's Play, you fucking hypocrite!Matt: I hold you to different standards. I expect you to be better than that.Ted: HEY!
- Ted gets into a "metaphorical cock-fight" with the wizrobes in Dungeon 6, and loses.
- And then suddenly Vegeta.
- The group get into an argument over who exactly was the character in dungeon 7 that stood in your way as he uttered the infamous "Grumble, grumble..." line. Despite the fact that Ted looked it up and said it was Goriya, everyone else just dubbed him "The Grumble Grumble Guy" and Johnny said, in character as the Goriya, "It's not grumble grumble guy!"
- It gets even funnier when the group dub him Fucking Alliteration instead.
- Ted rushing into Zelda's chamber in the final dungeon and getting burned by the flames because of it. Naturally, the group mocks him for it and noted it would have been painful and hilarious if someone had died in that room after getting that far in the game.
- In part 2, when the group goes off a tangent over Final Fantasy VII, Matt gives us this:
- Their discussion of Wizzrobe in Part 6.
Ryan: It's so satisfying to kick their asses in Wind Waker.Matt: Wind Waker? I liked how stupid they looked in Majora's Mask. "Ha-cha-cha-cha-cha! Ha-cha-cha-cha-cha! Ha-cha-cha-cha-cha! Eeee-yah!"Johnny: Actually, when I saw the Wizzrobes in Majora's Mask, the first thing I thought of was "He's a maaaaniac, MAAAAA-niac on the floooo-oooor!".
- Made funnier by Ryan, Matt, and Ted joining in the song.
- The amount of times Ted died playing this game without jump-cuts. He left in 22 deaths and said that he died about fifty times off camera. This means that if he's right, throughout the game, he died total of 72 times.
Mega Man 8
- The video descriptions
Megaman has to stop Dr. Wily for an eighth time using ANIME CUTSCENES. Can our hero survive the beyond awful voice dubbing? Why is Elmer Fudd playing Dr. Light? Why does Roll sound more masculine than Megaman does? Oh, also, some evil energy....stuff....

- Ted's naivete when it comes to Rule 34.
Ted: Why would anybody watch robot porn anyway?Ryan: Dude, Rule 34 man.Gareth: Yeah man, haven't you ever been on the internet before? Jesus Christ.Ryan: Dude, robot porn is like the least of your problems.
- Also, some fridge brilliance; Ted wasn't around for the Lost Levels playthrough, so he missed all of the porn discussions taking place during that particular playthrough (see the top of the page).
- Johnny noticing the dragon robots in Tengu Man's stage doing the worm.
- Johnny thinking that Duo's different-sized hands make him look like a chronic masturbator.
- Loose lips and bad rambling made for an odd choice of words uttered by Gareth during the robot porn discussion.
Gareth: I mean, there are people who legally marry horses, and while that's pretty fucked up, it's not as bad as robot porn.
- When Ryan has a glitch death on the second snowboarding section of Frostman's stage
- "Bass, why you don't understand?"
- When they talk about why Wily doesn't use the material that Mettaur helmets are made of in all of his robots, a certain flash animation is referenced.
- Their discussion about what the last part contains, and Mega Man being a walking vibrator.
- Ryan's fun with editing during the ending. Now sing it with me, You got the Touch...
- "Was it good for you Mega Man"
- Part 3 has the guys question Samus the same way people question the "1% elite":
Johnny: What the hell does Anonymous want with Samus?Ted: We do not forgive, we do not forget?BigAl: Adam, I want you to pizza bomb her house!Ryan: She is the 1% of Chozo technology?Ted: Why does 1% of bounty hunters have Chozo technology while the other 99% do not?Ryan: Occupy Samus?Ted: Eww....Johnny: That sounds like a porno flick.
- In part 4 about the fat scientist and the Wide Beam. (One of few cases where Ted's puns are not of the incredibly lame variety.)
BigAl: Wait a minute... the scientist knew how to do the Wide Beam?Ted: No, the X-Parasite just had the ability of the Wide Beam. Why? I don't know game logic.Johnny: I like to think the scientist had the Wide Beam. "Hey, Samus laser beam check it out."Ted: Well he was certainly wide enough.BigAl: Wow.Johnny: *While laughing* It all makes sense!
- Anytime Ted complains about Johnny skipping item expansions, Johnny gets annoyed by the constant complaining, but also takes glee in watching Ted suffer simply because Johnny knows how to play the game properly to the point where he doesn't need extra items.
- "This is a 3D Sonic game, and I'm actually having fun. What wizardry is this?"
- This bit from Part 1 where Ryan consistently fails to get to the goal ring.
- "Ok, Eggman, I don't want to see your Big Boy."
- Ryan dies to the boss of Sweet Mountain and everyone mocks him for it.
- When Tails gets hit by Eggman's mind control beam and almost attacks Sonic, Johnny jokes that he's actually just trying to get back at Sonic for the stolen penny.
- Ted's orgasms by Planet Wisp's Act 1 music.
Ryan: Hey Ted, it's Act 1 music again.Ted: "groans loudly" I just cleaned these pants.
- Also, at the end of that part, the others think that the reason Ted had to wipe his screen wasn't because of spilled coke... Ahem.
- The beginning of Part 5:
Ted: Let's see here: crappy dazzle quality, horrible editing skills, bad game-play... did Ryan record this?Ryan: Ah, shut the fuck up.
- Following that, Yacker on weed brownies.
- Ryan loving Act 1 more than Act 2 in Aquarium Park made for a cheap laugh, but a good laugh ensued when Ryan kept getting the cube powerup, screwing Johnny out of his music.
- "HE CAN BREATHE IN SPACE!"
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
- Part 5 has everyone reminiscing their childhoods when the honey level reminds them of Winnie-the-Pooh. Except for Matt.
Matt: (after the rest of the crew finish singing one of the songs) Do you guys get your asses kicked a lot at school?
Matt: Kingdom Hearts is the only time I ever want to see that fucking bear.Ted: What's wrong with Winnie the Pooh? You're literally shitting all over my childhood.Matt: Dude, there is nothing wrong with Winnie the Pooh... when you are two. You are now nearing twenty.Matt: Not when you're twenty, and not when you're a man!Ryan: (singing) My Little Pony, My Little Pony...
- It gets better.
- Johnny's rage at how much Sega fucked up porting the game.
Ryan: So how are we going to keep this rage up for four more parts?Johnny: I will find EVERY excuse I can!
- In fact, the very first minute is filled with these. In less than sixty seconds, references to AoStH have been made, Ted complained, and maniacal laughter was heard.
- Ted was asking why they couldn't have done a better GBA game such as Zero Mission, Fire Emblem, or Sonic Advance, which is funnier than it should be.
- "Now if you're wondering why exactly this game is such a tremendous ass..........ass?"
- In part 3, they deduce that Sonic Genesis is Satan in one of those cartridge disguises
- During part 3, Sonic gets impaled on a spike but doesn't take damage; the guys are dumbfounded by this.
- About 11:00 into Part 3, the guys start going off on random tangents since they don't want to so much as look at the game.
- Ted's new superpower, psychically making it impossible to open candy-wrappers
Ted: It was either that or stairway beams, so...[Laughter]Ryan: I think the stairway beam would be more useful.
- Part 5's rage.
- When the "Try Again" screen comes up.
Ted: Oh, you gotta try again Johnny! You gotta try again! You didn't get the Chaos Emeralds!Johnny: Fuuck yooouuuu!!!!
- This ridiculous death in Part 5.
Pokemon: Leaf Green Version
- The guys and Amanda are talking about Barry from The Rival from Diamond/Pearl/Platinum when Amanda makes a joke about Barry from Resident Evil; this goes over Ted's head. Ryan, Johnny, and Lewis calling Ted out is hilarious.
Amanda: I like that Barry though the Barry in Platinum is shit.Ted: What's the difference oh oh right Resident Evil.Johnny: Jesus fucking Christ.Ryan: Just now getting this Ted.Lewis: Give this man a prize he gets it!
- Lewis shows us the wrong way to fight the trainers in Brock's gym by using Metapod and Kakuna when he has a Mankey.
Ted: What are you doing? What are you doing!
- Johnny's reaction to Vanilluxe's design.
- in Part 11 (after Johnny took control), Charmeleon was going to evolve into Charizard much to everyone else's amazement... until he pressed the B button, why? Because he wanted to see their reactions if he did.
- And then it gets better, in the next part, in which he ditches the Charmeleon altogether for a Vulpix that Johnny actually evolves into Ninetails.
- In this episode, they overlay Dead Or Alive's You Spin Me Right Round Baby whenever the player character is spinning around rapidly.
- Made even better when you remember that the song was played at the same part of their Pokemon Yellow commentary as well.
- In Part 14 Lewis and Ted talking about Brains over Brawn.
Ted: It's just your Brain over Brawn message, even though whenever I said that to the jocks I got a punch to the gut.Lewis: If you were really Brain over Brawn you wouldn't be saying that to them at all. Because obviously confronting a jock when you are not a jock yourself is a really fucking stupid thing to do!Ted: It was my sister. What was I supposed to do? Never talk to her again?
- In Part 16 Johnny uses a Max Repel only to run into an Electrode, while, as usual, Guile's Theme goes off.
Lewis: You just used a Max Repel and you run into an Electrode what is the point?Ted: You can't run from Guile.Johnny: I just did.Ryan: Ashley decided to go home and be a family woman.
- In Part 17 Lorelei sends out a Jynx, leading to this remark from Amanda:
Amanda: Oh look it's Mr. Popo's bisexual cousin.Lewis: Oh my god you're right.
- In Part 18 Johnny needs to teach a pokemon Surf; he then sees that Willis the Rhydon can learn it. He then inserts the "Seriously" meme face.
- In Part 19, Johnny trolls Ted by hacking in a random encounter against a shiny Tentacool. Johnny immediately kills it claiming that he doesn't like Tentacool. Ted is left to fruitlessly froth in anger over it.
Super Mario Sunshine
- Ted finally manages to come up with a joke that isn't incredibly lame.
Lewis: Why does this game constantly recycle bosses? Is it poor design choice or because of the Gamecube's incredibly small disc?Ted: Maybe it's a product of this game's environmental message?
- Ryan manages to get the Shine Sprite of Rico Harbor's Red Coin Blooper Surfing segment and is mere inches away from obtaining it... before landing on a purple Blooper in a way the camera fucks with the controls and he ends up crashing into a wall. The rest of the crew was in hysterics.
Ryan: NO!!! OH GOD DAMN IT! TURN AROUND, TURN AROUND!
- Johnny's thoughts of the cork on Gooper Blooper being a pacifier making Gooper Blooper a baby.
- "HE SPEAKS!"
- To elaborate, Typing Blank is the guest commentator during this playthrough; he rarely speaks, so when he does, they make a big deal out of this.
- In the scene where Bowser Jr. is introduced and he reveals that Peach is (probably) his mother, Ryan edits in a certain scene from Dragon Ball Z Abridged that also gives the video its title: What a twist!
Lewis: Funny, I don't remember that happening. I must have been drunk off my ass for a whole 9 months.
- Immediately after, Lewis comments on the implications of Peach bearing Bowser's child.
- Johnny's Angst during the red coins in the coral reef mission sort-of mirrors Johnny and Co.'s (sans Lewis and Typing Blank) anger and rage during the Sonic Genesis commentary.

- The dick and sex jokes during Pinna Park's sunflower mission.
- All the times a vehicle passes by Typing Blank during the commentary.

- Every time Ryan starts singing the song from the US commercial, including lyrics from Johnny about Luigi, and Johnny invoking that Ryan made a more depressing version.
- Ryan not knowing that he could open a door with a pineapple, so he leaves the pineapple behind. The reactions of Lewis, Johnny, and Typing are hilarious.
Lewis: This is painful.Typing: It's not a puzzle...it's not a puzzle.Johnny: He's played the game before.
- Johnny's reactions to the stupidity of the Piantas throughout the playthrough.
- In Part 13, Amanda's dad walks into the room, leading to this exchange.
Amanda: I can't curse as much cause my dad's here.Johnny: There's no rule in Brainscratch saying you have to curse.Lewis: Did you say that loud enough for him to hear you.Amanda: He's right next to me!Johnny: Sorry guys, father's here gotta put the pot away.
- In Part 14, the gang spots a Pianta running around with his backpack on fire. Ryan leaves him to burn, saying that he's probably the same guy who blocked their path in the pineapple mission.
Johnny (in his Mario voice): Payback's a bitch!
- Part 15's montage of fail from Secret of the Underside, and Ryan editing in a full credit-like sequence of "F*ckthislevel" shown.

- In Part 3, after Johnny asks where the hitbox is, Reimu immediately gets hit and killed.
Ryan: There, apparently.
- In Part 6, Lewis and Johnny complain about the poor translation of the dialogue, which leads to this declaration by Johnny:
Johnny: HENTAI GETS BETTER TRANSLATIONS!Lewis and Ted: How do you know that (Johnny)?Johnny: Oh, I watch porn! All of you fuckers watch porn! Don't you try and fucking deny it!
- The guys' reactions to Remilia's anticlimactic Motive Rant.
- The running gag of Mario's million dollar contract.
Ted (imitating Wario): Hey sprite thingys, how much is this castle worth?Ryan: $999,999.99!Ted: Goddammit!
- The culmination of the gag comes at the final part where Ryan's 100% save file gives him the best ending and thus, the shiniest castle.
- The guys' reaction to Wario's face during the ending.
Pikmin to Sonic Rush
- Lewis's reaction to the eternal fuel dynamo.
Lewis: How did we take off last time without the fuel supply?Ted: We had the engine.Lewis: ...Right, how did we take off last time without the fuel supply that powers the engine?Ted: We had the engine.
- Also, the return of "It's a videogame".
- In Part 2, Ted wonders what the Pikmin are thinking as they drag an enemy to their ship.
Johnny: Feast! Feast! Feast!
- At the end of every day, Ryan imitates Captain Kirk summing up the events of the part.
Ryan: Captain's Log, Star date...Now.
- The captain's log of Part 2.
Ryan: I ordered the Pikmin around and tried to see what their capabilities were, by contacting them in the only way I know how... sexual intercourse. They did not seem to respond well.Johnny: I just realized I am working for Nintendo and I cannot use the term "sexual intercourse". I must find a G-Rated term for "sexual intercourse".Lewis: Cake.Johnny: Must have cake with the Pikmin!
- This brief exchange between Lewis and Ted.
Lewis: Wait hang on, is that a ship part?Ted: Yes that is a ship part.Lewis: Our ship has a windup key? Really?Ted: It's a repair mechanism.Lewis: *laughing* It's a repair mechanism.Ted: It's a repair type bolt. Apparently if you just twist Olimar's ship enough it will blast off at the speed of light.Lewis: So it is a windup key!
- Whenever Olimar leads the Pikmin into almost certain death, Johnny suggests that they should form a union. The voice he uses sells it.
- During the enemy roll call at the end of the game, Ted points out that whoever recorded that footage sucks more than he does, as they seem to be trying to get the Pikmin killed.
- This exchange in the final part:
Johnny (Pikmin voice): Sir, I found a hissing rock!Johnny: Get away from it, you fool!
- Ted introducing the commentary acknowledging how well they've done with other games of this genre. "Hey guys, guess what? RACING GAME!" *giddy laughter*
- When Eggman introduces the Babylon Rogues:
Johnny (Imitating Eggman): Here's the racers I found: Metal Sonic, Tails Doll, Metal Knuckles, and Egg Robo- oooh, I'm suddenly getting deja vu.
- Johnny comments on all the enemy racers being the same robot. "He's such a fatass that he can be 12th and 2nd place at the same time."
- Knuckles insults Tails... and doesn't even realize it.

- At the start of the Meta Knight boss battle, for a couple of minutes, Kirby just stands still not picking up the sword so that Ted and Ryan can recite the $00PAH Nin10Doh Meta Knight skit.
Ted (as Meta Knight): Alright, Star Warrior, draw your sword and duel me!Ryan (as Kirby): I don't wanna!Ted: B-B-But we have to fight!Ryan: Alright, but I'm not using the sword.Ted: Oh yes you will! You draw that blade and you like it!Ryan: No!Ted: OK, fine. I will wait.

- Their 4kids rant:
Lewis: "They don't care about censoring violence, they care about censoring guns. Guns and sex and bathroom visits."Ryan: "And Japanese text."Lewis: "And Japanese text, yeah. Japanese text must go; we cannot expose our impressionable youngsters to other cultures. The only country on the planet is America. No North America or South America, there is no UK and there certainly is no Japan. There is only America."John: "Don't get me started on Canada."Ted: "So how did they explain the war on terror then? That kind of needs another country."Lewis: "Um, extradimensional aliens.

- Johnny's insanely accurate imitation of Brauner while the rest laugh.
Johnny: "BLOOD ART TECHNIQUE. A PAINTING, OF THE SOUL! I'LL MAKE YOU MY MASTERPIECE! THIS, IS ART!"
- When Ted gets the Cutter+Spark power, Ryan puts in a poorly edited version of the confrontation with Darth Maul to show the epicness of the double edged lightning sword ability along with Lewis and Johnny's reactions.
- During stage 4-2, Ted goes on record saying it is a pretty easy level, even with the Dynamite power. Because of this statement, Ryan and Johnny expect karma to come along and kill Ted. It takes a while, but Ted is killed by an unexpectedly well-aimed shot from a lightning cloud enemy... just one step away from a health item. Johnny then gives out a Big "YES!".
- After defeating the boss of Shiver Star, the guys find the Corrupted Ripple Star, which leads to "corrupted" jokes:
Ted: Oh... no, the heart is covered with blackness... kind of like my heart.Lewis: Only... uh...Ryan: It's current day Nintendo I knew it!
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
- Ryan trying to decide what to name Link. He first thinks of Bort but then decides "Nah, too common." He then tries "Gary Oak". Cue confused look from Gary and his Umbreon. He then tries Batman. Cue angry look from the actual Batman. He finally decides to go with Dumbfuck.
- The intro.
Ryan: It's time to play the greatest game ever made in the history of anything.Johnny: But we already did Final Fantasy VI.Ryan: Oh, shut up.Ted: But I haven't recorded Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door yet.Ryan: You shut up, too.Lewis: I don't see any cel shading. This is not Catherine.Ryan: Wait, I did forget one other competitor: Cheetahmen.Johnny: Oh, well there's just no comparison.
- When Saria is saying goodbye to Dumbfuck, she mentions that he's special to her. Ryan then inserts a clip from Ukinojoe's Legend Of Groose Grooseward Gourd. Johnny's reaction is what really makes this funny.
Johnny: This is why I don't watch the raws ahead of time.
- Here's Grooseward Gourd for reference.
- And again when Ryan completes the chicken minigame at Lon Lon Ranch around 12:30 in Part 5.
- Also, when you reach Saria in the Lost Woods, the clip plays when Saria mentions that this place is special to Dumbfuck and her.

- In Part 16, Ted theorizes that the Skull Kid wanders around the Lost Forest with a boom box constantly blasting Saria's Song.
Johnny: Turn that shit down!Ted: You can't tell me what to do!
- Ryan keeps bringing up a a "tennis racket" when referring to the bottle. Why? Simple: Watch part 19 and watch Ryan hilariously beat Phantom Ganon with his bottle with the battle set to the Mario Tennis theme. The rest of the crew, meanwhile, act as pretty good backup commentary for said battle. It gets referenced again when Link fights Ganondorf.
- In Part 20, it may not quite be Inherently Funny Words, but:
Lewis: He's the Garlic Jr of Chrono Trigger!
- Part 27, Ryan uses the Lens of Truth to see some invisible spikes, Ted had this to say.
Ted: Invisible spikes that would make Mega Man cry.
- Part 22, Ryan enters the Water Temple. He then inserts a clip of Spongebob screaming. This cracks the others up, needless to say.
Ted: Am I the only one that finds it odd that Spongebob is yelling even though he's technically already underwater.
- Part 28, Ryan chooses the best way to deal with the stealth section in Gerudo Valley, slashing everyone with the Big Goron Sword.
Ryan: Who needs stealth!

Ted: Hey kids! Have you ever been so hungry that you could cook an Octorok? Well, here's your chance!
- Part 35: Ganondorf's Piano Practice Lessons with Zelda. Her horrified expression makes it seem as though Ganondorf is terrible at playing, and ragtime music is substituted for his normal ominous organ theme.
Shadow the Hedgehog
- Ted talking about the moral choice system.
Ted: Say you want to align with Eggman cause I want to be his Egg-partner or something.Lewis: *Laughing* That has to be the most awkward wording of anything ever.
- Talking about what kind of doctor Eggman is.
Gareth: Are you saying that Eggman is a man that does back alley abortions?Lewis: That would explain the nickname, though.
- Midway through Part 4, Gareth's mic starts being all screwy and makes him sound weird. Hilarity ensues.
Johnny: Ladies and gentlemen, Gareth Android.
- They begin discussing Shadow's many "I Am Speeches," often how he's asked a question and the speech does not pertain to it.
Johnny (as Shadow): "I am Shadow the Hedgehog, the ultimate fry cook in this McDonald's kitchen. I will use thy skills to pay the bills. THIS is who I am!"Johnny (customer): "Dude, dude, all I wanted was a #2 with onions."Ryan: "I am the one who cuts the onions."Amanda: "THIS is who I am!"
- "Let's what happens then"

Gareth: Go Go Shadow Chaos Blast!

Gareth: It's not brought up often in the media, but Eggman's actually the Vice President.
- In Part 11, Ted commandeers a jeep and, after less than a minute of driving, drives it off a bottomless pit directly in front of him.
- In Part 12 (beginning at 8:00), Gareth wonders if Shadow was created to be The Ultimate Life Form and a living sex doll at the same time. Needless to say, everyone else begins to comment that he has a sexual relationship with Shadow, even going as far as pondering the possibility of a Shadow the Hedgehog sex doll, and resulting in Ted saying:
Ted: Gareth, once this part is over, I'm going to direct you to an amazing site called Fanfiction.net, where you can get all of those urges out of your system.
- The many, MANY porn jokes during Part 13.
- The running F-Zero jokes when Ted fights the Blue Falcon boss in Part 16 (complete with callbacks to their F-Zero GX commentary).
- The ending of Part 18 starting with Gareth speculates that Eggman will only blow up the Earth to get the world's greatest tweet, leading to Amanda laughing uncontrollably for nearly two minutes.
Gareth: Just blew up the world. LOL!
Ted: "WorldGoBoom" might be a trending topic.
- Ted then comes up with a list of Trending topics if the world blows up.
- In the same part, Amanda states that if Shadow were to karate chop Black Doom, a squishy alien, the sound of the impact would be of a rubber duck squeaking. Gareth follows it up with Shadow winding up smacking himself due to the rubbery impact bouncing the karate chop back at Shadow.
- After Ted dies a cheap death from an Artificial Chaos during the horrible Lost Impact level in Part 20...
Amanda: Oh my god, I hate that!Lewis: Failure!Ted: Fuck you!Amanda: I... hate... that... thing! I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, it needs to die in a fire, I hate it, I hate it, it needs to die, get burned, PUT IT THE OVEN, COOK IT, ROAST IT, THEN TAKE IT OUT, EAT IT, AND THEN SHIT IT OUT, AND THEN BURN IT AGAIN!Ryan: Okay, we get it, Amanda.Gareth: I'm pretty sure Amanda's trying to tell us something. What is it?Ted: This level sucks and should die a horrible, flaming, burning death.Lewis: Amanda wants some combustible lemons, that's what she's trying to tell us.Amanda: LEMONS!!!
- Part 22 has the crew wondering where Shadow was keeping all of his Chaos Emeralds by the end of the game. Gareth suggested that Knuckles was off screen, slowly tossing the emeralds to Shadow when the scene called for it.
- In Part 23, Amanda's outburst at Black Doom's Luke, I Am Your Father moment may have further cemented her status as The Scrappy, but Gareth more than makes up for it with this line:
Gareth: Amanda, it wasn't funny when I did that 4 years ago and it ain't funny now.
- In Part 24, thanks to some very good timing from Black Doom:
Johnny: I've already spent the entire commentary stating why I really don't like this game.Black Doom: Burn!
- When Ted makes a joke about plugging, Johnny has a short rant which leads to an interesting moment:
Ted: I've only seen the OVA three times... one of them being the Commentary *cough* plug! *cough*Johnny: What is wrong with plugging this shit on our own channel!? It's OUR channel! With that said, watch our Resident Evil 4 Commentary, it's hilarious.Gareth: Are we allowed to plug stuff in this commentary?Johnny: *cuts Lewis off* Wait, FTA's a guest, he can plug anything he wants. What do you want to plug?

- In Part 2, the guys are talking about how elephants are afraid of mice; this then leads to a conversation about Dumbo.
Lewis: That's Disney thinking outside the box... until the direct DVD sequel that jumped right back into the box.Ted: I don't think there was a direct sequel to Dumbo.Lewis: I know, and that's why it's my favorite Disney movie.Paranoiasonik: There's a Dumbo 2.Lewis: Oh god damn it, you just ruined Dumbo forever for me now.
- In Part 2, the guys talk about Kiddy Kong's onesie.
Lewis: Oh god, he's wearing those stupid-ass one piece pajamas.Paranoiasonik: Yep he's wearing a onesie.Ted: I haven't worn a onsie since I was like six years old.Everyone but Ted: SIX!Lewis: Got out of those a little late didn't cha.Paranoiasonik: Which is why he's wearing them in the thumbnail image.
- In Part 9, during the "Krack-Shot Kroc" stage, Ryan points out the similarities between the stage's gimmick and one of the stages in Donkey Kong 64 with the same gimmick but also a Nightmare Fuel voice that says "GET OUT!" when it starts, leading to surprise from the ones who hadn't played DK64 and laughter from the others.
Paranoiasonic: I was just playing a lighthearted Donkey Kong game, when-Ryan: GET OUT.

- Their discussion of watching movies backwards in part 12.
- And of course, the Running Gag that was the Jesus Barrel.
- In Part 3, Ted shows that the art gallery of doom apparently has material that Ib shouldn't see until she's... ahem, older. He reads it twice, first when he enters the room in which he found it, the second time when the room was messed up after Garry lit his lighter.
Johnny: This calls for porn!

- In Part 5, the discussion at the beginning about MS Paint.
- The thumbnail image, which depicts the four guys as the Ghostbusters.
- Ryan using the catchphrase "I ain't afraid of no ghost!" Using Luigi's voice before shifting to a quick verse of the Ghostbusters theme is just hilarious.
Johnny (also using Luigi's voice): Oh No I have to get 10,000 dollers... this is not a good night!
- Also this:
- During Part 3, Lewis randomly blurts out "Parappa The Rapper with a Rocket Launcher." When the others react with confusion, he explains that he's watching his brother play the Playstation All Stars Battle Royale demo. They then imagine Parappa popping out of nowhere and shooting King Boo.
Johnny: I gotta do what? I gotta believe! Boom!Ryan: You didn't believe, bitch!
- Over-exaggerating Luigi's greed to the point they sympathize with Wario.
- Let's just say, "Titan Tails" and be done with it.
- The four try to figure out why everyone in the mansion is a ghost, Lewis is the one who deduced that they all died to a drinking game (Around 1:30). Much to Ted's horror.

- Anti-Gravity (About 5:30) needs to wait, Luigi has a phone (or in this case Game Boy) call.

- In Part 2, when the Red and Blue Goomba Bros. show up, both Ted and Johnny make references having to do with the colors red and blue. Johnny may have gotten the colors mixed up in his reference, but it's still funny nonetheless.
- At one point in the recording, Lewis bails because he forgets that he was supposed to pick up his brother at the time period of recording.
- In Part 6, while exploring the Koopa Bros. Fortress, Ryan keeps wondering where Boom-Boom is, which eventually leads to this moment when the Bob-omb party member joins.

Johnny: *As a Nintendo rep* So, we have this new 3D game for you, what you think?

Johnny (deep voice): People call me Gourmet Guy because I'm really fucking fat.Ted: Not fat, big boned!Johnny: Nah, that's bullshit, I'm fat.
- In part 19 Lewis's connection fucks up A LOT to the point he gives up trying to watch the current part... ...only to ask what time they were at not a few seconds later
- Lewis: At this point I'm just gonna give up trying to catch up and just gonna assume the boss you're fighting is Bruce Lee's shadow or something.Ted: ...Anyway the timing on...Lewis: *interrupting Ted* ...What time are we at?
- In Part 24, Lewis's constant nitpicking of video game logic comes to a head as he observes a block-pushing puzzle.
Lewis: I have a question. Why is the block flipping when we're just pushing it flat with our hands like this?Johnny: I'm just gonna have to ask you to shut up right now.
- The many jokes made during the quiz show in Part 25 are funny as hell.

- At the Bombette Duplighost scene in part 34, Ted edits in the Shadow Clone Jutsu sound effect, complete with Naruto's voice. The others aren't impressed by this, and only laugh after Ted dismisses it.
- ...And he does it again at the Duplighosts that are very bad at their jobs.
- Also in Part 34, the group reacts to Madam Merlar's "shortened" version of her tale:

- Three in part 39.
- The first one is a hammer bro which starts throwing hammers at Ted, but Ted activates a cutscene that requires him to press A to continue. The Hammer Bro can't hit him; however, it keeps on throwing a barrage of hammers at Ted, all of them doing nothing.
- The curse comes in after a battle, giving Ted a bunch of extra coins, that he literally cannot carry, as he reaches 999.
Ted: Somewhere, far away, Wario is crying.Johnny: *Laughing* I was just about to say that.
- Beforehand, but after Ted reaches 999, he delivers this line.
- The Ninja Koopas come back to fight. Lewis makes the remark that he can commentate over a fight with them, as he had to walk out on them earlier. Ted laughs so hard because the Ninja Koopas are beaten by Jr. Troopa.
- Later, in the battle, Lewis says he's gonna laugh if the game lampshades how did Jr. Troopa get all the way to Bowser's Castle. Shortly after, Goombario makes that lampshade. Cue Lewis laughing.
- This little gem from the final part, after a bit of only Johnny and Ryan talking.

- When the guys joke that when Andrew dies, the viewers have to start all the way from part 2, Ted makes some cliche excuses. What makes this funny is that he combines many different cliches.
- It's made even more hilarious when you find out that in Touhou's canon, one of the best ways to distract Chen is by tossing some catnip at her.

Ted looks it up and finds that it requires heating potassium chloride and strontium chloride in a blue alcohol flame, leading Ryan to interpret Blaze as an alcoholic who eats a lot of bananas and then Johnny takes it a step further by saying that Blaze's story is all just a hallucination. The guys then act out a drunk Blaze.
Ted: Hey guys, Look at these bananas. I think I should eat them. What do you think?

Ted: So wait, their plan is to have the Flash run REALLY REALLY fast, and if he burns off enough calories then they'll come over here?Ryan: Yeah, the machine will be so impress it will open a portal to the other dimension.Ted: Huh, if only my Wii Fit could do that, then I'd actually play the thing.

Johnny: I bet you that they're iron pressed too.

Johnny, also using their account, then comments telling Lewis to shut up. Ted, using the account as well, then comments telling Johnny and Lewis to stop fighting. Finally, Ryan comments telling them to shut up and to comment on the commentaries using their own channels."
Dual-wielding Persona and Attack on Titan references. Aw yeah. *puts on shades* - LewisBe quiet Lewis. - JohnnyChildren, play nice. - TedComment on videos using your own channels plebeians. The irony of this comment was completely intentional. - Ryan
- In Part 15, Ryan goes on a tangent about how annoying it is working in food service since inevitably someone will come in 5 minutes before closing while you're cleaning up the restaurant.
Ted: Yeah, can I get 3 large buckets, 12 fries, 16 drinks, oh and are you still serving breakfast?Ryan: Go fuck yourself.
- Whenever Erica shows up, the guys refer to her as Ronald McDonald. This comes to a head in part 15 when they start talking about Katherine's symbolic last name.
Johnny: I know it's symbolic, but is it a trend? Is Erica's last name McDonald?Lewis: Anderson, actually.Johnny: Fuck, that's not funny.
- After the big bad accidentally reveals his involvement in the dreams to Vincent, only to discover that's not what Vincent was talking about:

- And later when Vincent starts arguing with him over what he said:
- When Vincent removes the big bad's shades we get Ryan's reaction:
- Later, when Vincent's friends return to rejoin Vincent, they see Vincent holding a knife towards Boss, he quickly dismisses it as playing games. The guys make jokes about the game involving stabbing with said knife.

Mass attendance has gone up 3000 percent.Ryan: Be careful what you confess to, because the guy in the other booth has this big red button there, and he will push it.Johnny: Nonono. The rocket booth is actually fueled by the sin. So the greater the sin, the higher you go.Ted: So to cleanse yourself, you get blasted off into the air?Ryan: You get fired into the sun if you confess to watching porn.Johnny: There goes Ted.
- "RING RING RING RING RING RING RING BANANA PHONE!"

Johnny: That's right, little girl, we are playing Sonic Lost World!Ted: Get her out of here, this isn't suitable for children.Ryan: This isn't child-friendly. Sonic is serious business!Clement: Have you not played Shadow the Hedgehog?Lewis: Everyone, get the children out of here! They might make an orphan joke!
- It was revealed though the comment section that the little girl was Gareth's niece.
- In Part 4, Johnny asked why Sonic was in a snowball.
Lewis: Because we were stupid enough to spin dash, and now (gets interrupted by Johnny)Johnny: I honestly thought you were about to say "Because we're Sonic Heroes", but I guess that that would be too obvious.*Everybody laughs*Ryan: Because Sonic CD is time travel.*Everybody laughs again*Johnny Yeah, there we go.
- The little girl returns in Part 6, shortly after the guys were cracking jokes about having to play Sonic Lost World's 2P mode with the Grim Reaper when you die.

- In part 12, they wonder how the Forces of Nature could run a flying factory and suggest that it runs on potato batteries and is levitated by the Master Potato.
- Part 15 is a CAVALCADE of hilarious tangents, from the guys imagining the horrors of a disco revival to their opinions on The Great Gatsby and sports, and musing about if Ted was born in the 1920's, and last but not least, a conversation about heaven being in the stratosphere and planes turning invisible like the Helicarrier, ultimately leading Ted to conclude that Nick Fury is Jesus, and the evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were the first Avengers!
Ted: Troy Baker, okay let's see. Anime roles- Holy Shit! HOLY SHIT!!
- Not to mention Ted's confusion about Judaism and "Jewish hell".
- Ted making the mistake of looking up Troy Baker's Wikipedia page.
Johnny: Is it as bad as Philly booing Santa Claus?Ted: PHILLY BOOED SANTA CLAUS?!!Ryan: Yeah.Ted: What?!Johnny: Philly fans are notorious and we're damn proud of it.Ted: YOU BOOED SANTA CLAUS!

- In part 20, after Pittoo crashes through the Chaos Vortex gate, the guys start to joke around that smashing a Unicorn into things solves all problems, including World Hunger. Ted comes to the realization that this method would just kill all of the hungry people in the world, but that would still technically solve the problem.
Spyro the Dragon
- At the beginning of Part 2, when Ted disproves of Ryan killing the sheep, even though they give Spyro health.
Ted: Those sheep didn't do anything to you.Ryan: They give me health!Lewis: You're a dragon. You eat sheep. Don't you know how these things work?Ted: But they're cute.Lewis: ...they're food. They're lamb chops.Johnny: Oh, they're so cute I could eat them!
Ted: That bird was just minding his own goddamn business!Ryan: It has a gem!Ted: Oh, so mugging's okay now, is it?Lewis: It's an animal! You're a dragon!Johnny: Lewis is right; you are a dragon. Natural selection, mother fuckers!Lewis: Survival of the things that don't get set on fire when you breathe fire on them?Ted: I don't know, it doesn't seem awfully fair; I mean, the rest of these guys don't have extra lives or health bars or anything.Lewis: How do you know that? They could just be respawning somewhere.
- Near the end of Part 5, Ted continues to defend the animals Ryan abuses in the game.
- At the end of Part 2, Spyro rescues a dragon named Thor.
Ted: Thor!?Thor: *in a nasally voice* Thank you for releasing me!Ted: Liam Hemsworth, what happened to your voice!? Man, you've better get like a lozenge or something when you go back to Asgard because that just sounds sad, man! noteTed: Do they ever get pop-culturey with the dragon name — *gasps* Conan?!Ryan: Ask and ye shall receive!Conan: *in the same nasally voice* Thank you for releasing me!Ted: Oh my god, he has a lame voice too! What the hell!? All of the badass characters get the lamest dragons! WHY!? GAME!
- At the end of Part 6, Johnny and Ted were talking about tax free sales... And then Johnny mentions it as "sales free tax". Cue Lewis laughing, and then everyone coining in their interpretation.
Ryan: I'm sure the government would love if they could just keep the money for no reason.Lewis: You don't even need to buy anything, they just walk up to you on the street and take it from you. "7 CENTS! NOW! GIVE IT!"Johnny: What's 8% of nothing?Ted: Oh crap, the NSA is gonna hear all of this and get terrible, terrible new ideas.
- Ted's laugh whenever Ryan fucks up in the game.
- In their Sonic Boom impressions video, the guys video feed messes up and everybody ends up sounding like a cyborg except for Ryan. The guys even point this out in the comments. The VERY NEXT video they upload is part 10 of Spyro, where Lewis make a joke about the guys ACTUALLY BEING ANDROIDS. Keep in mind the commentary was recorded months before the Sonic Boom retrospective, thus making this one of the greatest coincidences in history.
- Ryan's edit at the end of part 15 after the release of "Mudada", involving Dio Brando from Jojos Bizarre Adventure and his infamous steamroller.
- Also from part 15, Ryan near the level's exit forgets to open a chest, to the complete disbelief of everyone, even Johnny the "Anti-Klepto".
- In Part 18, Ted and John's reactions to the enemies in the last (regular) level suddenly wielding machine guns.
John: They're packing heat!
- After a grueling air chase to obtain a key in Part 19, Ryan finally obtains the key to a treasure room, 6 minutes into the part, only to discover one gem only worth 10 points. It is debatable what is funnier: This or Ted's reaction.
- Anytime John does his Spyro impression.
Devil May Cry
- Part 1 starts off with Lewis jokingly stating that Dante is the Trope Codifier for every Gary Stu in anime, only for Ted to cut him off and say Santa was the true Trope Codifier, sending the entire crew into hysterics.
- Dante: Master Ventriloquist.
- Ted points out that the grenade gun that Dante picks up from the dead soldier is located on said soldier's crotch.
John: That thing had a grenade gun for a dick?Lewis: Um, yeah, sure let's go with that.John: Amazing.
- At one point, Dante comes across a sign that talks about three openings to insert something. Ted gets a laugh out of this, causing Lewis to call him a hypocrite for giving him a lecture on using Comic Sans earlier in the commentary.
Ted: Hey, I don't have standards, I thought you did.Lewis: If you can make jokes like that, then I can use fucking Comic Sans in my videos!John: No, but that's like the number one rule on the internet you don't do. You don't use Comic Sans for anything.Ted: You only use Comic Sans if you're doing a doge meme. Such Font. Much eye burning. Wow.Lewis: Well maybe this entire playthrough is a doge meme. Did you ever think about that? Such grind, much Red orbs. Yay.Ted: Wow, you're doing it wrong. Worst internet person ever. Zero out of Ten.John: Let's just stop.
- Followed by a rant about Ted's one standard: Bee puns.
- In part 4, the guys come across an enemy awkwardly named "Fetish". This prompts John to google the word in search of an alternate meaning. The results are (Supposedly) horrifying.
John: No Google, NO!
- Ryan describes Project X Zone as "the only game where John McClane will talk to Mega Man X."
- On at least two occasions, Lewis attempts to juggle enemies using the shotgun. This gives the hilarious image of an enemy bouncing on Dante's shotgun blasts.
- This exchange in part 10 after the guys pick up an item called the philosopher's stone:
Ted: Oh, Harry Potter was looking for this.Ryan: So were the Elrics.John: (Referring to the horribly deformed humanoid monsters Dante is fighting.) Well, these things do sort of look like the Elrics' mom.Ted: Oh don't even joke like that, man. That's just depressing. That's the only episode of Fullmetal Alchemist I've seen.Ryan: You have not seen the two most depressing ones.Ted: Wait, it gets more depressing than that!?Lewis: (Crying) NIINNAAAAAAA!!!!!Ryan: Yeah, Nina.Ted: Now I don't know if I want to watch this.
- According to the guys, the level leading up to the final boss takes place inside of Monstro the whale from Pinocchio and Dante is actually Osmosis Jones created by the surgeons from Trauma Team.
Mighty Switch Force
- Lewis, who has never played the game, comes to the realization that it's about picking up chicks.
- The title card, showing the guys sneaking away from Patty.

Mega Man X4
- Part 1 begins with Johnny doing an impression of General and asking the question of what are they fighting for to Captain Ryan, Brigadier Lewis and Janitor Ted.

Johnny: You see, when a USB port meets a USB drive... Do you want me to continue?Ted: I'm gonna upload some data into you, if you know what I mean.
- The guys play the Guess-How-many-times-John-died-recording-the-Jet-Stingray-level game. (Hint: It's between One and Forty.)
Ryan: Forty.Lewis: Is it Thirty-Nine?Ted: Twenty-Seven.Lewis: Did you seriously die Thirty-Nine times?
'Ted: HAHA! Price is Right rules, Bitches!

- The producers of the game are Keiji Infune and Bamboo. And then Ted makes a pun that actually makes the guys laugh!

Link: The Faces of Evil
- The title of the first video alone was enough to send viewers into hysterics.
- The title card: Link jumping out of a cake for the group's 5-year anniversary. This is the image, by the way.
- Even funnier is the group's reaction in the picture.
- The comment section of part 1 has Ryan, Ted and Johnny (all using the BrainScratch account) quote the opening cutscene with a slight twist.
Ted: Gee, sure is boring around here.Ryan: Mah boi, these views are what all true Let's Players strive FOR.Johnny:I just wonder what Gannon is up to...
- Part 1 features probably the most hilarious cut-away image ever, a segment from The Light of Courage.
Ted: Was that Princess Ruto humping the air?
Iwasaperson: When I heard you guys in the Ocarina of Time playthrough saying that you'd love to do the CD-i games someday...Johnny: Did we? I might have been high.
- Iwasaperson explains why he decided to record the game for the Brain Scratch Crew:
- Anything involving the raft with shoddy hit detection.
- Iwasaperson's edits to cut out repeated deaths and backtracking are done in the style of Youtube Poop.

- In the final part, Ryan jokes that the 10th anniversary video should be a 10-minute shot of a jar of mayo as an homage to Rocko's Modern Life. Seems they jumped the gun a bit, because the last 10 minutes of Part 7 is a shot of a jar of mayo.
Batman: Arkham City
- The guys start talking about Cat Woman's cleavage Window, and eventually get to the subject of Power Girl. Ted questions the logic of her decision to have a cleavage window, to which Johnny replies that she's waiting to find an emblem to put over her boobs, which he then jokes about it actually being a cleavage symbol.

Grundy: Solomon Grundy...Johnny: Want pants, too.
- At some point during the playthrough, Ryan decides to cycle through the different alternate costumes for Batman. The rest of the group's reaction to each one is hilarious.
- Near the end of the playthrough, Ryan finally gets to Animated Series!Batman. Or as he likes to call it, "Best Batman".
- The guys accentuating Strange's apparent incompetence like not being able to tell time correctly.
- As Talia leads Batman to the trials of the demon and starts giving out exposition, Ryan quips that he's only looking at her ass.
- Several moments from part 17:
- Ryan actually dies from an ill-placed mine. He uses the "You didn't see anything" clip from Madagascar and about thirty seconds of Adam West dancing to cover this up. Lewis is not amused.
- Batman encounters two rather glitchy enemies on a ledge at one point. After sending the first mook literally flying, Ryan goes to confront the second one, only for the mook to glitch out, sending the group into hysterics.

- In the infamous bomb mission, when Ted screws up and the bomb detonates, he edits in the Earth-Shattering Kaboom from the ending of Super Metroid.
- Anytime they quote Awesome Center, such as when GUILT first appears and when the aforementioned bomb mission is introduced. Also, at the beginning of the playthrough, Ted notes that he had the rest of the crew watch the video beforehand and points out that it's "not much of a stretch."
- Ted explains the Guide Dang It!-ness of the final boss where you cannot use the Healing Touch at all until the very end of the mission where Derek automatically activates it, at which point you must use it yourself to completely stop time, otherwise the mission is unwinnable.
Johnny: Do they warn you about that?Ted: (very quickly and bluntly) Nope!*Beat where you can practically hear the dumbfounded look forming on Johnny's face*Johnny: Are you sure?
Crash Bandicoot 2
- We get some classic Lewis right in the first level, where he repeatedly tries to get a pair of Wumpa Fruit just out of reach, then giving up after getting one.
- Really, just the fact that Lewis, being the Kleptomaniac Hero that he is, goes out of his way to collect every gem, break every box and eat every wumpa fruit in each level, no matter how tedious or time consuming.
- In order to get the Blue gem in the first level, Lewis must plow through it WITHOUT BREAKING A SINGLE BOX. The other guys proceed to taunt and tempt him with each box.

- In Part 6 while riding the polar bear, Lewis clips through the ground and dies with his death animation also clipping through the ground.
- In part seven, while going through the level 'Diggin' in', Lewis dies while backtracking through a part of the level. He then has to backtrack through that part again. And again. And again. Without editing. Yeah, there's a reason why the part is titled "Super happy backtracking funtimes".
Ted: Let us remind you that this part is over 25 minutes long. It was lengthy enough without the backtracky-ness.Lewis: Yeah, I think I let the short length of the game deceive me into thinking I didn't have to edit too much.Johnny: You deceived me, you whore! But I love you.Ted: I love you. But I hate you! But I love you.
- The sudden appearance of ice cream truck followed by everybody gushing over it.

And I apologize for saying the words 'fine booty'; that was disgusting 'cause that's just a really weird phrase for some reason.Lewis: Unless you're talking pirates.Johnny: Yeah, there is a pirate.Ted: Well, pirates are in this game too so yeah. OK, nevermind. You can look at treasure as much as you want, treasure is shiny.

Ryan: Phones have to have lines.Ted: I donít understand. My phone doesnít have any lines on it.John: Ted, Youíre going to be the first to go.Lewis: It transmits to a tower that does have a line, and then that signal goes along that line to another tower that transmits it to the other phones. Magical.Ted: OK, magic. You see, you just need to say words like that and then itíll make sense.Lewis: Oh my god.
- A note on being able to pick up milk turns into hilarity, complete with post-commentary clips added to complete it.
John: It's an..American Drink"; well, what's an "American Drink"? Is it milk?Ryan: Ah! Mango Drink! *WUNCH*John: *Gets a chuckle from it*Ted: Dude, milk existed way before America existed.John: No, I refuse to believe that.Ryan: Ah, Mango Liquid Refreshment! *WUNCH*John: *Snickering harder, now* Is this "Orange Juice", or "Orange Drink"?Ryan: Mango-Wango! *WUNCH*John: *Aaaaand there he goes.*

- Upon the revelation that David (or "Deadpool" as Ryan refers to him) and his "merry band of weirdos" are cannibals we get Ted's reaction.

And then two hours later, 'So I bought the game.'Johnny: *Laughs*Lewis: To be honest, the reason I bought the game initially was a sense of guilt, because I-Everyone: *Bursts out laughing*

- How much Ted hypes up the game, addressing it as an epic quest and claiming it to be the "greatest game in the highly-acclaimed Legend of Zelda franchise" in the video description.
- Johnny points out that in the developmental notes that when they were trying to find a way to fit the Zapper in the game, Miyamoto proposed of the idea of a plot where Link time-warps into the future (which would excuse his usage of guns) and that it was vetoed. Lewis is then baffled that someone turned down Miyamoto's idea.
- Johnny then takes it further that it would feature Link in a Matrix outfit and using Uzis
Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil
- The lack of understanding the crew has of the game due to paying minimal attention to what's happening.

- In Part 2, Lewis predicts how their inevitable Metroid: Other M playthrough will end up.
Lewis: It's like, okay, we can't possibly not pull another F-Zero GX on that playthrough. It's going to happen eventually. It's going to happen so hard. It's going to happen just like it happened in Klonoa 2.Johnny: No, but that was a different time though. We were young, reckless, and virgins. *beat* Right?
Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

- From part six:
Lewis: I can't believe I have to ask this but... my video lagged to hell. What time are we at?(everyone laughs)John: Oh shit, it's our anniversary?
- And from the next part, where the five guys are talking about how the bartender is the most important person in any RPG.
Ted: Why do we have to go and save the world when bartenders are instantly more qualified?John: Because they made the choice to serve the drink instead of justice.Lewis: What if it's a mug full of liquid justice? Would that count?John: No, that's Just Ice.
- Lewis forgot about the Mako's cannon when he was recording this playthrough, and the rest of the crew can't help but joke about it whenever a situation it would've been useful in comes up.
Gex: Enter the Gecko
- While discussing one ad for the game in Part 2, Ted makes an observation.
Ted: See, that's how you get good with women. You just gotta be a lizard who will never stop making Pop Culture references. So I'm already halfway there, I just gotta start making more Pop Culture references.
- Ryan's hilarious Captain's Logs are back and as promised, he's now imitating Captain Picard.
- While the Water Wraith only shows up once during the Submerged Castle, The game makes up for it by having a bunch of bomb rocks drop from the sky to Ted's bafflement.
Bomb rock drops right in front of himTed: OH MY GOD.Two more bomb rocks drop right next to the first oneTed: STOP. Game.(everyone laughs)Ted: What did I do to you game?!
- To mock what the guys consider to be one of the worst cases of "Bat-God" out there, pieces of the soundtrack from The Lego Batman Movie are sprinkled throughout the commentary.
- Clement apparently identifies Japan as "The place of Persona".
Lewis: Fuck their cultural identity, their the setting of the Persona series.
Crash Bandicoot (PS4)
- Lewis makes a habit at the end of EVERY part of Crash 1 to insert one of the old Japanese Crash Bandicoot commercials. They are just as random as they were originally.
- Ted plays the game in Butt mode. Enough said.
- They somehow go from a gender pronoun tangent to an English grammar Nazi tangent, but Lewis realizes this, and they drop this gem.
Lewis: It just hit me like, with the force of a freight train, that were probably the only people on the internet who broke off into an English grammar nazi tangent over the mis-gendering discussion.(everyone laughs)Ted: The point is 'they' should be used as a singular pronoun because it's 2017 people.Johnny: The moral of the story is that Butt Mode is great.
- To bring Body Swap mode to its logical conclusion, they eventually re-recorded the first part of the playthrough, but it's Quatherine, Sabrina, Twixmix, and Becca replacing the normal crew for the entire part.
God of War II
- Ryan starts the game by showing off the Cod of War outfit. Ted has a laugh watching Kratos kill people with fish hooks.
- In part 6, they discuss Castlevania and wonder why Death works for Dracula, and decide that they were college roommates.
- Part 10 begins with dead air, until Johnny breaks the silence with "So how about that local sports team?"
- When Icarus shows up near the end of Part 13, the guys can't help but make the obvious references to Pit.
Ted: Oh damn, those 25 years between games were rough, oh, I'm sorry!
Ryan: Not the first level again!
- It comes to a head at the very end of the part, when it turns out Ryan edited in some Kid Icarus music, complete with an "I'm Finished!" screen.
- Lewis starting a favorite vegetable tangent early on in part 15, giving Ryan the idea to call the part "Veggie Tales."
- In the final part, when Kratos says that "Your son has returned!", Ted as Zeus replies "Which one?".
Sonic & Tails Playthrough
- And Knuckles and Knuckles and Knuckles and Knuckles and.... But no beatnik or Rastafarian.
- The DRM discussion, where they conclude that SimCity is like Dark Souls but with DRM.
- Their discussion of the Sonic fanbase's insistence that Sonic was always about exploration rather than speed, despite things like the Sonic SatAM theme song, which refers to him as the "fastest thing alive". Some of their attempts at improved lyrics are hilarious.
- They have to discuss the real-world reaction to their "Is Callie RACIST!?!?!??!!!!" clickbait parody.
- The Crew gets into a brief tangent pointing out how Amy mistaking Shadow and Silver for Sonic makes no sense due to the fact that the only similarities they have is species.
Johnny: If it was Shadow with a Sonic wig on that one closeup, I'd be laughing my ass off.Ted (as Shadow): Yes, I'm Sonic. I'm the coolest hedgehog.Johnny (as Shadow): I am who you call "Sanic".Ted (as Shadow): I'm the firstest thing aliv.
- "Is Callie RACIST!?!?!??!!!!"
- Even funnier, it was originally a tangent about Marie behaving badly.
Metroid: Other M
- From the very first line, the group knows exactly what they're in for.
Everyone: Why.Lewis: Good gosh, why.
- After spending the entirety of Part 4 talking about IP protection and not talking about the game at all, they drop this.
Johnny: I think the most important thing out of this is that we got diffusion beam with a large blast radius, andTed: Shut up John, nobody cares.
- Stares the Abyss
Ryan: Ya-aay!Johnny: Stares the Abyss, you are so happpy to be here! You know what? I'm glad someone's having fun out of all this.
- More specifically, his dopey open-mouthed grin, which causes the crew to burst out laughing near the beginning of Part 6
- Right after a cutscene in which the ship the main cast is in crashes... so does the game.
- Right before Totem Wishiwashi, Ryan edits in the "Anchovies" clip from SpongeBob SquarePants.
- Lewis's reaction to Alolan Persian.
- Really, a lot of Lewis' reactions to things are worth a laugh.
Super Bomberman R
- "Launching Missile"
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai
- Dragon Ball runs on Microsoft Windows.
Freiza: 85%... 90! I will show you all, who will reign supreme.Ryan: Oh it's Windows File Transfer, now it's back down to 87.Ted: You see, that makes the five minutes thing make sense! You know, estimated time remaining five minutes for this planet to destroy. Wait, now it's ten, now it's an hour....
Dragon Ball FighterZ
- During the cutscene where Android 18 first appears, there's this exchange.
Lewis: Ok, so, Android 18 is playable in this game, right?Ryan: Yea, she is.Lewis: Ok, that's all I need to know. I'm getting it.
- Ted really doesn't want to talk about vore.
Doom (2016) to Current
- The mission title "Beginning of the End" at the start of part 6. Of twenty-four.
Lewis: It's a very long ending, Ryan.
Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped (PS4)
Kirby's Return to Dreamland
- In the first episode, Ted was trying to delay the game.
Ted: What if you need to check the news?Ryan: No.Ted: What if you need to check the weather?Ryan: No.Ted: What if you want to look at photos?Ryan: No!
- Ted describes the group fairly accurately when compared to the characters they were using.
Ted: I'm the most attractive one, so I'm Kirby, Ryan is the shady one, so he's Meta Knight, John thinks he's the best so he's Dedede and Lewis is just sort of here, so he's Waddle Dee.Lewis: That about sums me up.
- In part 2, after destroying the blocks in the HAL Room while running through, Johnny jokes about them causing the next Super Smash Bros. game to get cancelled.
- Also in part 2, when Ryan (Meta Knight) grabs the tuba shield, Johnny (Dedede) suggests that Ryan walks behind him so they can have a tuba player walking behind a fat guy.
Johnny: Oh, real funny, guys!
- After everyone shares food with each other, Ted makes this analogy.
Ted: Little did Nintendo know that with this game they essentially made the longest, most drawn out Orgy ever.
- Ryan reading Magolor's lines in his Hotel Mario voice.
- In part 5, Ryan, Lewis, and Johnny all going after a 1up and getting killed in the process.
Ted: Way to eat up my lives, guys. Geez!
- Trying to get a life in World 5-1 ended up causing much confusion because of Ted needing and losing Whip Kirby.
- In part 11, they start having difficulty keeping their number of lives up (not helped by the fact that the game reset their life counter to seven), and just before the ten-minute mark, one of them suggests they "brute-force it" because they have infinite continues. Ted is completely against the idea:
- The numerous lives lost from trying to get a cleat in episode 12.
Johnny: This is what happens when Dedede doesn't get the cleat.
- Also, the ending of 12.
Ted: (After they all break a bell) And that's the story of the Liberty Bell as told by a three year old on acid.
- At the end of Part 13, after the ship crashes on Halcandra, Ted points out that you can can go back to Popstar at anytime.
Ted: We don't even have to fight the dragon, we can just go home! In fact, that's what we're doing, we're going home right NOW!Johnny: *laughing his ass off*
- The crew gets a game over at the end of Part 14. That's right, a game over in a Kirby game. Ted sums up everything in one line.
Ted: We are pathetic.
- Also in part fifteen, when they just finished That One Level and they do the jumping mini game everyone gets a perfect score.... Except Lewis. The reaction is hilarious.
- Also, in a reversal of this, later everyone gets a 2 in the mini game, except for Ryan, who gets a 1. Not as funny, but still funny enough to make its way onto this page.
- Part 19 is titled "Ding Dong the Kirby is dead." This is the episode where they get more game overs. Not just one, but two in the same part.
- Johnny's continuous quips about how Ted should just kill himself at the beginning of a level because they were pretty much out of lives. So they intentionally got a game over. And this is the fourth one as of this point. Not only that, but they get another one literally right after it. Unintentionally.
- When Magolor reveals that he is the villain, Ryan changes the Hotel Mario voice to a Luigi voice.
Ryan: Now I can reveal my true identity... it was really me, Depressed Luigi.Johnny (Also in a Luigi voice): It was all thanks to you and the Chaos Gears. What do you mean you didn't collect all the Chaos Gears? Oh goddammit! My plan is ruined!
Mario Party 2
- When Ryan (Wario) does really good at Dizzy Dancing, Johnny theorizes that drinking only makes Wario more sober.
- Seeing as how Lewis has never played Mario Party, Ted tries to convince him that landing on Red Spaces is good and Bowser Spaces are even better. When Lewis acts skeptical, Ted pulls out a Bowser plushie and says "Isn't this a face you can trust?"
- Ted's Reaction to Chance Time in part 2.
- Ted: Oh no CHANCE TIME!!!
- And then he gets fucked over from it to boot.
- Johnny speaking in Luigi's voice for a good chunk of the game as he complains about the game's shortcomings, such as only being able to hold one item.
Johnny (as Luigi): Why can't I carry two? I have two pockets!
- Ryan shouting Wario's catchphrase "D'OH, I MISSED!" every time he screws up.
- Johnny screws with Ryan in Crane Game quite well.
Johnny (as Luigi): Go ahead, go for it, go for it. I fucking dare you. I'm going to bash the shit out of the button. You can't hold Luigi! (Ryan: NO!) No one can hold Luigi! Luigi decides when Luigi goes or fails. Try it again. I dare you, I double dare you, motherfucker! YOU CAN'T GRAB LUIGI! Why aren't you going after the fucking monkey first!?Ryan: Oh I'm just determined to GET you!Johnny (as Luigi): You're not getting Luigi!Ryan: Goddammit!Johnny (as Luigi): Your mother is a fucking ham sandwich!Ryan: You bastard!Johnny (as Luigi):Go ahead! Try it again! So I can laugh at you some more! (Starts slipping up) I'm laughing too hard now...Ryan: Goddammit! You still win! You bastard!Ted: Oh what, so I'm not good enough to pick up? Is that how it is? Is that how it is?Johnny: No Donkey Kong just shat bricks! He sees his impending doom, but isn't sure how to react to it!
- Lewis got TWO HIDDEN BLOCKS THAT BOTH HAD STARS, ensuring his victory in Pirate Land. The rest of the group's reactions are priceless.
- And in Part 6, Lewis lands on ANOTHER Hidden Block space...which turned out to only have twenty coins instead of a star. The gang's initial reaction to this is absolutely priceless.
- The Running Gag of "Lewis Wins by Doing Absolutely Nothing".
- Part 5's ending with the draw on Shy Guy says made this troper feel their sides nearly break from laughter.
- This little gem in part six while Ryan was choosing who to duel
Ryan: Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a tiger by Luigi.Johnny (As Luigi): That doesn't fucking rhyme! You have a vendetta. All or nothing, motherfucker.
- Part seven, Johnny makes a joke about how he (Luigi) was the five time jump rope champion back in preschool. This prompts Ryan to say that he was in preschool for five years, causing the crew to laugh. Including Johnny, who didn't even realize what he said until after Ryan Lampshaded it.
- Also, later, Luigi and Peach won the same mini game and the words "Luigi Peach won!" appeared on screen. This caused Ryan to point out in Mario Party 7 that you could play as Dry Bones, causing Johnny to crack up.
- Ryan making fun of how the game could change at ANY moment.
Ryan: So last game Lewis won by doing absolutely nothing. This game I won by being actually good. Moral of the story: This game is full of bollocks!
- In Mystery Land, Ryan has one space between him and Boo, and enough coins to steal Ted's star, so Ted puts a slow curse on him. He rolls a 2... And not only does he steal from Ted, but he gets another star from a hidden block!
- Ryan spamming the taunt button.
- Lewis wins Crazy Cutters with 1 point more than Ryan, despite Lewis tracing his lines with a lot of right angles instead of a circle. Johnny and Ted call bullshit at Lewis's victory.
- In Western Land, Ryan lands on a Hidden Block space and decides to end the video before hitting it.
Johnny: No, don't do that! They will never let us live that down! We're no better than American Idol!
- John accidentally steals Ted's star due to an accidental flick of the control stick, leading to a loud scream of pure angrish.
Mario Party 4
- The custom thumbnail used for part 1. It must be seen to believed.
- And now we add Ryan's Waluigi voice to the mix...
- Better yet? Just the moment Ryan picks Waluigi.
Ryan: "Waaaaah."Lui-John: "Accept no substitutions."Walu-Ryan: "I'm a substitution."Lui-John: "Nobody fucking cares."
- "Walu-Ryan" and his Rule of Moe.
Ryan (As Waluigi): Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, Catch a tiger by the—fuck this.Ryan (As Waluigi): MOE NEVER LIIIIES.
- Attack of the Giant Daisy!
Ted: Gojira!Ryan: Gojira, Gojira!
- During Bowser's Big Blast in Mario Party 2, the members go down 1 by 1 in Luigi's favor, but the same game in Mario Party 4 has Ryan, John, and Ted going on for a minute or two until Ted decides to change his wire to yellow, causing him to blow up the bomb. Thus giving the match to Ryan with Johnny choosing the wrong wire.
- This exchange during the Reversal of Fortune in Part 2 when Johnny is selected to give a price to another player...while the game is still going.
Johnny (Luigi): Are you there, God? It's-a me, Luigi. If you have any sense of reason, you will keep that ball away from the purple fuck that lives in th—fuck you God, I disown you! I'm going to meet with Lucifer first thing in the morning!Ted (Toad): I'm right here! You can stop right now, if you want!
Lewis: Princess Daisy has successfully wasted everyone's time.
- Also, the result of said Reversal of Fortune, which made Luigi and Waluigi swap their coins... While they had pretty much the same amount of money. Waluigi only got one coin.
- On Ryan's second trip to the lottery shop in two turns: (all quotes are in Toad voice)
Johnny: Y'know Waluigi, I think you have a gambling problem.Ted: We're here for you.Johnny: You have a drug addiction and a gambling problem. You are not a positive role model in the slightest.Ted: This is an intervention!*Ryan gets the second best prize.*Johnny: Oh no! That'll make the habit even harder to kick!
- Ryan on his trolling craze robs Ted of his star. Sadly for him, he forgets Ted has an item...
Ted: OH, LOOK WHO'S ALL IN A LINE. *Mega Mushroom*
- The last turn, which is a complete Humiliation Conga for Ted. Every single player ends up screwing over Ted in some way, through item use or just dumb luck. It ends with Ryan and Johnny cracking up to the point of tears because of how close Ted came to beating Ryan in several categories that would have gotten him bonus stars, only to fall short by a literal single coin. Not to mention that was the same single coin Ryan got from the near-useless Reversal of Fortune.
- Adding to that is Daisy's Skyrim voice.
- The moment of existential crisis at the end of a Hop or Pop game.
Ryan: Hi, I'm Daisy!Johnny: *Snickers* *Ala Wario* I thought I was-a Wario.Lewis: You'd think that, but the reality is all perception.Johnny: *Wario* How can we prove we exist?Ryan: *Wario* I think, therefore I am.
- We may have found a suitable replacement for John's Luigi voice... John's Yoshi voice.
Johnny (As Yoshi, of course): Good old crack cocaine!
- Ted lands on a Chance Time space and hopes to get revenge for the times Chance Time has screwed him over.
Ted: Hey Satan (Toad) can I have a bit of luck today?Johnny: Sure Ted, just lay off the fucking puns.
Lewis (Skyrim voice): How do you Americans say it? A winrar is me!
- He ends up having Johnny give 61 coins to Lewis.
- Let's just say Mario Speedwagons and leave it at that.
- The Hide and Go Boom mini-game where Ryan must guess which cannons Ted, Johnny, and Lewis are hiding in. Lewis picks a cannon before the camera pans away.
Johnny: Daisy, I think you went a little too early. Your response? Hi, I'm Daisy!
Ted: (As Yoshi is shot out of the cannon and becomes a Twinkle In The Sky) Ohhhhhhhh shiiiiiiiiiit!
- Ryan immediately chooses that one, only to find out that Lewis picked another cannon after the camera panned. He then gets Ted on his second attempt.
Ryan: D'oh, I missed! I could've had it, too!
- With two cannons left, he chooses the one that neither Johnny nor Lewis are in.
Lewis: You know, Peach is going to get awfully jealous.Johnny: It turns out Mario's pants are down and he's buckling them back up.Ryan & Johnny: Ohhhhhh!Johnny: I can physically assault you now that you're in the vicinity.
- Mario and Daisy jump out of the remaining cannon.
- * At the result screen, we see Ryan won by a margin of one coin.
Lui-Johnny: It was the one coin he stole from Luigi. It made all the difference.Ted: Can we open the window? I want to see what the ground looks like.Lewis: As it rushes up at your face?
- In the Boo's Haunted Bash playthrough, Ryan steals 25 coins from John because he distracted him by talking to him He celebrates this feat by quoting "KEIKAKKU DOORI!" (The thumbnail for this particular video also has Light Yagami sporting a Waluigi hat and mustache.)
- Later on, John attempts to steal a star from Waluigi, but completely forgets Waluigi had a Gadlight, basically wasting 50 coins. The thumbnail from part 3 pops up for a few seconds while Ryan quotes "KEIKAKKU DOORI!" again.
Johnny (as the Boo): Hey Luigi, heard you used a Boo on a guy who had a Wadlight.Johnny (as Luigi): First off, it's GA Dlight, and second, fuck you.
- Nathan, as Donkey Kong, tries to take credit for planning that, to which Ted says "There is no way you could have planned idiocy of that nature."
- And this bit when Johnny stops at another Boo.
- And despite both screwups, John manages to win. What makes it funny is John mentioning his previous win.
'Ted: Not canon. Not canon.Johnny: It is canon! We shot out of cannons! It is canon!
- EVERYTHING Nathan says as Donkey Kong. Such as:
DK know what do.DK not know what do.(after Johnny uses a Boo when Ryan has a Gadlight) DK PLAN THAT! DK PLAN THAT!DK driving!(Ted: It was the best of banana, it was the best of banana. Ooh, banana, yum yum yum yum!) (Johnny: And that, children, was War and Peace, as told by a monkey.)
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Multiplayer)
- In the final match of the quick tournament, Ryan takes the piss out of the sort of serious mood by using Pink Captain Falcon.
- Ted praying not to get "Environmental Sounds" in the Pikmin stage, so the game retaliates by playing said "song".
- Ted: OH GOD DAMN IT!
- Johnny gets a Smash Ball in the final battle for Part 3 and fires off Samus' Zero laser... ...only he ends up getting turned around by the waterfall in the Pikmin stage, costing him the match.
Johnny: Fuck you waterfall.
- Ryan getting the Smash Ball while playing as Luigi.
- This leads into Ted's quote right after (keep in mind this is alongside John having a laughing fit):
Ted: Goddamnit, Ryan, your gonna make me piss myself.
- Ryan gets the Smash Ball as Wolf on the Mario Bros stage. He then gets the Landmaster stuck on the upper level of the stage because it's too big to go any further.
- Ryan: What kind of Final Smash is this?!Ryan (as Wolf): Laandmassterrrr!
- In the second match of Part 6, when Ryan uses Wario's Final Smash to turn into Wario Man, Johnny sings the 1960's Batman theme song but replaces "Batman!" with "Fatass!"
- In Part 7 and 8 the guys pick random stages two of them being Ryan's horrible custom stages one that's just platforms and ladders the other being nothing but falling blocks.
- Even funnier, the name of the stage wih the falling blocks is appropriately titled "AAAAHHHH!!!!"
- Part 10 in one Ryan's custom stages that's falling platforms that drop to spikes Lewis gets stuck below as Ivysaur and ends up getting 907% damage in one match.
- Ted manages to outpun Chuggaaconroy, of all people, in part 10.
- Johnny's reactions whenever he's killed by luck or, in the one time they played Mario Bros., the boundaries being outright bizarre. Such as Ted (playing as TOURNAMENTS! (Meta Knight) being KO'd with at least half a model's length between him and the stage boundary and John (playing as Ike) getting KO'd out of the blue with at least a models length between him and the end of the stage boundaries.
- During part 4 Ryan and John are the only ones left when a Nintendog is summoned. It proceeds to obscure most of the screen forcing the two to stand on opposite sides and wait for it to vanish. At some point during this a bob-omb materialized and started to walk towards Johnny. It runs into him as soon as the Nintendog vanishes and they were about to resume their fight prompting this reaction.
Super Mario 3D World
- This conversation during the opening cutscene:
Lewis: Gosh that toilet was clogged.John: It shat out a fairy!Ryan: It's a sprixie.John: Is that what they're calling sentient shit now?
- "Bowser's rearranging his spice rack? Oh no!"
- "The madman!"
- Later on:
Ryan:(Pretending to be Bowser) Oh so when Link does this, he's the hero. But when I do it, I'M the bad guy.Johnny:(Pretending to be Bowser) Suddenly, I'm an asshole!Ted: Wow, Bowser lost a lot of weight, he can fit into that pipe no problem.Lewis: Man.John: He was secretly a genie this whole time!Lewis: Bowser must have scoured the land to find that many bottles.Ted: Yeah, there's only four in the entire country.John: Well, if he's playing Majora's Mask, there's six.Ryan: Yeah, so he must be playing Majora's.
- "And Mario gets a great upskirt view of Peach now..."
- John's Luigi voice returns once again.
- When the guys have to share control of Plessie.
John: That's anarchy.Ryan: start9! start9! start9!
- "The furry convention is on its way!"
- All sorts of shenanigans occur in Puffprod Peaks, since the moving platforms react to Ryan speaking, but what really takes the cake is John deciding to throw everyone into the abyss before slipping off as well.
- At the end of Mystery House Melee, Lewis comments that Chibi Luigi looks terrifying. Johnny (as Luigi) replies that he has a condition, just as he wins 1st place in the standings.
Johnny as Luigi: It's called being the best.Lewis: What?
- As the title of Part 4 implies, the group has a bit of a gambling problem...
*slot machine appears on the map right as they unlock the Boss level for World 2*Ted: So let's see, what's more important? Gambling or fairies?Ryan: GAMBLING! In fact, we'll make our own World 2! With Blackjack and hookers!Johnny (as Luigi): Mario, we haven't paid rent yet!
- Boom Boom returns.
Ted: Hey Mario, look! Boom Boom!Ryan as Mario: *Delightful squeal* All this time!
- "Okay, let's agree, no trolling." *Lewis dies*
- The Running Gag of Lewis continuously failing the levels. Be it falling off the edge or missing the flagpole, he's without a doubt the worst player. The guys even note that their life counter has dropped from 40 something to 14.
- In Part 10, Ted puts on a Goomba hat and starts chasing Peach, much to Lewis's terror.
Ted: I'm gonna FROWN you to death!
- The golden train bonus level, aka the Hype Train, aka the Miyamoto Train.
- Due to his inexperience with the game, Lewis usually ends up running around like a lunatic, and since the camera has is on him, the guys end up accidentally skipping stars in the level, making him the anti-klepto for once.
- "Peach is useful!"
- In Part 10, Toad and Luigi bubbling... then unbubbling at precisely the wrong time.
- In Part 11, the group has just cleared Searchlight Sneak... by not even bothering to evade the searchlights. The Metal Gear jokes they've been cracking reach a head right after the level:
"Snake! You've alerted every single guard in Shadow Moses! What are you doing?!?"
- Throughout the entire game, the guys have only been dying every now and then (mostly due to Lewis' incompetence), but in part 14, they just start dropping like flies. To put it simply, the guys begin the part with 20 lives (they got a game over last time), gain 8 through a slot machine jackpot, and finish the part with less than 10, effectively losing almost as many as they began with.
- Ted's introduction to World 8 in Part 18.
Bowser!Ted: So, y'know, I was thinking about ideas for my final place, and I was talking to that Eggman dude and he said "Make it a gigantic amusement park!"Bowser!John: And I was like "You're mad! I love it!"
- Upon the appearance of the final boss (Meowser), Ryan channels Tony the Tiger and spouts something about having a bowl of Frosted Flakes. Ted reacts by trying to assemble the other cereal mascots, ala The Avengers.
- Part 22. A clusterfuck ensues.
- Ted's joke on the title logo's Japanese text
- "Ooga chaka ooga chaka ooga chaka ooga chaka!"
Super Smash Bros. 64 (Multiplayer)

Ted: Buy Earthbound Please!Ryan: It's on the Wii U Virtual Console.Ted: We've got like 50,000 copies still in storage please!Johnny: This game stinks... of Goodness!
Mario Party 3
PAX East 2014
- Starting off the right way:
Luigi!John: Something tells me I should've slept in.Ted: Day 1: Why do I keep RSVP'ing to these things?
- Referring to Luigi's portrait when you highlight him on the character select screen:
Luigi!John: Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering? No? Okay, I'll go away, then.
- The game "misspells" Blooper as Bloober note and it took Ted, who's played this game the most, until now to realize it.
- The very first Battle Game played is one that Ted hadn't played on that file. The game? Merry-Go-Chomp.
Ted: Day 3: Already put in jail before either of those two assholes. How does that work?
- Ted is the first one out.
Ryan: Mario just doesn't like us.
- The Chomp picks the red space all three times.
- Lewis looks up the descriptions of the items he's carrying.
Luigi!John: I don't believe it. Someone's actually looking up the fucking instruction manual.Luigi!John: Book! If you're gonna quote it, get it right.
- All of the Toadstool Titan mini-game because of, well...
Ted: On that day, humanity received a grim reminder...Lewis: That mushrooms are good for your health?Ted: How is that grim?Lewis: I hate mushrooms!
John: I was waiting for it...
- As soon as the mini-game is picked, Ryan starts singing the theme.
Ted: Day 116: I decided to join the army, that way I can get all the food, money, and VENGEANCE I could ever want!
- In response to the giant character not having full control over their movement, John sings the theme in a drunken slur.
- Lewis points out that Waluigi kinda looks like the Smiling Titan, a.k.a the one who ate Eren's mother.
- Luigi lands on a Happening Space, which will blow him to another part of the board. He realizes it would be beneficial, and decides to "let go". Cue Johnny (in the Luigi voice, of course) singing Let It Go.
Ted: You happy now, Tumblr?
- The Water Whirled mini-game, which according to Ted, had a budget of 70 million dollars.
Luigi!John: If Daisy wants Christmas ham, Daisy does as she's told!
- In response to faltering at the start line due to the incredibly slippery controls, Lewis gives up on the race and decides to race backwards. This causes a pile-up with him, Ryan, and John, allowing Ted to win the race.
- In Part 8, the group's quips when Yoshi obtains the Cellular Shopper, otherwise known as the Mushroom Dildo.
John: It's, uh, one way to spend a Saturday night.Yoshi!Ted: So, what are you wearing?John: Birdo, I brought something home!Ryan: Yoshi's put stranger things through his asshole.Luigi!John: And Luigi's still trying to take something out of it.
- From the same part: UNLIMITED PANCAKES FOR THE EMPEROR! It's funny enough on its own, but John's laughter can and will leave you in hysterics.
- The beginning of part 8:
Ted: HEHEHEHE! Wood! Hehe, he, it's funny because wood means-Ryan as Waluigi: You stole my joke! You stole my joke!John as Luigi: You hear that? You stole Waluigi's penis!
- At the tail end of the Tetris-expy minigame, Johnny, Ryan and Ted belt out a "The Tetris God" reenactment so well-done, it's unfathomably hilarious.
Johnny: Line piece.Johnny & Ryan: LINE PIECE.Ted: Thou art a cruel and angry god! LIIIIINE PIECE!
- In Waluigi's Island The crew decides to screw off Ryan by all teaming up against him. So, he decides to stay on that one island where the spaces change every turn for the entire game.
- The star actually spawns on the board. He doesn't get it at first, but literally after Yoshi grabs it with his magic lamp, it spawns right in front of him again!
- Johnny raving at Ryan staying on the island merely to troll everyone.
Ted:: You do realize you're just submitting yourself to the Bank every single time.Johnny: He doesn't care! He just wants to cause pain and misery to those all around him! He eats children's cereal for breakfast! And I don't mean like children's cereal, no, he steals other children's cereal and then eats it for breakfast!Ryan: Silly children, Trix is for me!
- The following is so amazing it demands to not be spoiled for those yet to personally witness it:
Johnny: This is unnacceptable.Ryan: *Withholding his laughter.*Johnny: This is unacceptable.Waluigi Wins.Ryan: *Laughing Mad*Johnny: YOU SON OF A BITCH! *Sounding on the verge of tears* It doesn't work that way—! ANARCHY DOESN'T WIN...!!!
- Naryman finishes the Mario Party 3 playthrough with a clean sweep, crowning his victory by spending the literal entirety of Waluigi's Island on the space-switching island, constantly hitting Bowser Spaces, Chance Times and more. He didn't even remotely try to win, spent the entire game trolling the other three nonstop, and this is what led to victory.
Ted: There is nothing good or sacred or holy in this world. Hell, there isn't anything even half-decent every once in a while, there's just PAIN. PAIN AND FUCKING SUFFERING.
- This line from Ted in reaction to Waluigi winning in particular had this troper laughing.
- At the beginning of Waluigi Island, Johnny predicts it's going to be Waluigi's worst game, as Ted put's it "homefield disadvantage," it is his worst game of the Mario Party boards, but he still wins.
- The very beginning of part 1 has Ted laughing maniacally before sobbing.
- "I am the Superman!"
- After failing the car mission and finding out you have to restart, this happens:
Ted: No, fuck this! Fuck you and your rings! (starts flying around)
- Lewis, by complete accident, discovers something that none of the guys and most likely none of the viewers knew about: If you fail the mission part of the ride stages 3 times, you will restart at the mission part, instead of having to do the rings part again. This comes after John rants about there being no checkpoints in the game and Lewis, in reaction to this, decides to keep playing instead of handing the controls over to Ryan.
- Part 2 is called "Super breakdancing" for a reason. Superman clips trough the ground during the dark shadows mission.
- Johnny then says he wants a "Geddan" remix of the above glitch. Ask and you shall receive, Johnny!
- Also in part 2, the whole aspect of Ryan doing well makes Ted think he payed the N64 to not screw with his run.
- In the end of Part 2, after another instance of checkpoint confusion, Ted accidentally resets the console, causing the group to lose their current progress.
- Describing Superman's walking animation as his morning jog
Ryan: Tra la la la la!
- Superman throws a robot into a wall, with the resulting explosion killing him.
- In Part 3, Superman gets knocked back, and then flies directly up.
Ted: I have to go now; my planet needs me.
Ted: (as the skater) Yo, Superman! I really want to do my awesome new tricks in this mafia neighborhood!
- The entirety of the mission that they were playing at the time can count as this
- Also in Part 3, Ryan notices that in the fourth level the the background outside the level is just a blown up version of a picture near the start of the level.
Ryan: WAIT A SECOND... *Johnny is about to speak* Hold on.. *moves Superman back to the room with the picture* ...THAT'S THE SAME FUCKING GRAPHIC!!! *everyone else bursts into laughter* It's the SAME fucking graphic!!! How lazy are you?!
- In Part 4, the gang tries out the game's never-talked-about multiplayer mode. Ryan and John end up finding great joy in moving their characters into the screens of their defeated opponents and twitching around.
Johnny!Darkseid: "Whoo, you gotta try this! It only costs a quarter!"
- When a villain reveals their plan to drown (virtual) Metropolis:
Johnny: Not even virtual Aquaman can stop it.Ryan: Aw...

- After the second match, Ted takes a look at his accolades for the match.
Ted: Mostly Harmless!? I got four kills!
- At one point, Lewis just stares at the floor to 'provide light' to the other three.
- The whole crew start screaming when they spawn in the cave level. Why? Because Ted's TV makes it almost entirely pitch-black.
- Ryan gets an unfair death, because the game decided to respawn him right in the middle of the other three's gunfight. With no weapons.
Ryan: Died four times? That one wasn't even my fault! You spawned me back here with everyone else!

- The four participate in the minigame "Cast Aways."
Ted: WILSON! WILSON!!

- They finally mastered the above challange, only for the mine cart to come out upside down.

- After they turn Ted into road kill.
- When Lewis was stuck with no other option then to kill himself to reach the next checkpoint, he instead went into the character customization section.
Ted: Uh, stuck under a car, need a make-over.
- "Hey John, you owe me a victory hump."
- "No guys, we film the porno tomorrow."

- The very idea they got Ted (who has been avoiding this game for 9 years) to play it.
- This exchange:
Johnny: Just to give out some context. Ted has never played Sonic 06 beforeTed: Because I'm fucking smart!Johnny: You've played Shadow the Hedgehog for us.
- Ted somehow did this.
Silver: Time for you to disappear, Iblis Trigger!Ted: Okay. *Tries to leave*
- Then there's this little banter.
- In Part 2, after he completely fails to defeat Silver in his infamous boss fight, a frustrated Ted hands the controller over to Johnny... who utterly destroys Silver and makes it look effortless.
Ted: You wanna know that sad thing is? You guys are all laughing at me but he's the one who's good with fucking Sonic 06! So, fuck you guys!
Ryan plays Five Nights at Freddy's
- In the second part, Ryan has to deal with the animatronics, power usage, AND his laptop running out of power. This last one gives them more fear and trouble than the game.
Johnny: We said we weren't gonna do facecam, and I really wish we did now.
Cards Against Humanity
- At one point, Ted asks how many "blacks" Johnny has. Everyone laughs as Ted quickly clarifies that he meant black cards.

- In Part 2, Ted (playing as Tails) steals John's (playing as Sonic) rings while standing on a space right next to him.

J-Stars Victory VS
- The whole thing is pretty much everyone aside from Ryan not knowing many of the jump characters that are playable, and hence many jokes are tossed around. Sans Johnny knowing Goku and Frieza, and a few of the others on team Brainscratch also knowing some of the characters
- TJ's singing of the 4Kids One Piece rap in part 4, and the musings of 'How long would it be if they actually got to the entire crew'

Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
- Eventually, all of the commentators playing as Barbara and her Sisters, and never want to be Rayman, Globox or Teensie. They figured it might as well be called "Barbara Legends".
- Then don't even switch for levels that silhouette their characters. It's hard to say if they deserved it or not, but it's funny none-the-less.
- Ryan (as Murphy) constantly trolling Lewis (who is Globox) via pulling platforms away from him, crushing him with the pillars and other ways off killing him.
- Johnny and Ryan's attempts to speedrun 600 Feet Under and 6,000 Feet Under, ignoring a lot of collectables much to Ted's annoyance.
Johnny: Speedrun HYPE!!
- This becomes a Running Gag as they still do this anytime there's a vertical shaft with hilarious amounts of failure.
- In the first stage of the final world, when a giant finger starts shooting lightning from the sky:
Ted: So, I heard you were trying to go to Chick-fil-A on Sunday!
- The entirety of Part 15 is the credits with them going more and more crazy as they beat up the credits. The credits go on long enough for everyone to max out their Lum counters!
Johnny (in the comments for the video): We're not sorry.
Streets of Rage 2
- Ted gets further into the game than he ever got and wades away from Bellisario's Maxim:
Ted: I've straight up never seen this level, it's like Rambo I guess? Um, we went from a standard city street to Disneyworld to the middle of a jungle, from a beach, which makes a- I have no idea where the hell we are and I don't think we're-Johnny: Don't forget the baseball stadium that had a secret elevator.Ryan: And the alien fortress.Johnny: That led to like a secret underground wrestling ring.Ted: Yeah, you know-Johnny: A pirate ship with ninjas.
- Later, in the post-credits:
Ted: Wait, they need a helicopter, did they-? Were they in the same city or not?Ryan: No.Ted: Streets of Rage needs a much clearer continuity.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Back to the Future
- In Part 6, properties go up for auction that Ted would highly benefit from, but John and Ryan constantly put in bids at the last second. Ted gets nothing.
- The Alternate Character Interpretation they create for Angelo, turning him into a vain pretty boy whose Catch-Phrase is simply a drawn-out moan. John feels sorry for Angelo fans who will have to put up with this in their eventual Dragon Quest VIII playthrough, and Ted realizes that DragonQuest VIII is the most popular Dragon Quest game and thus probably the one DragonQuest playthrough most people would watch.
- For the thumbnail image of the Undertale cover art shown to the right during the playthrough, Lewis replaces the butterfly with a bottle of ketchup, which makes the protagonist look like they're hunting for ketchup.
- In part 1, Lewis tries to give Flowey an evil voice after his "friendliness pellets" attack, but then stops himself after realizing he's giving Flowey a southern accent.
- Part 1 also shows Lewis trying to get hurt by the spikes to no avail, despite "slamming his face" into them and then declaring they're made out of rubber.
- Part 2, Lewis sounds horrified that Toriel would serve him snail pie. He also has this reaction to Toriel ruffling his hair:
Lewis (as Frisk): Oh, you did not! Don't! Mess! With! The 'do!Toriel: Is something burning...? Um, make yourself at home! *runs off*Lewis (as Frisk): Your soul is burning in hell for touching my hair!
- Also in part 2, Lewis refuses to read Toriel's diary out of respect, only to go back on his word when he saw Toriel's sock drawer and declaring that she has nothing to hide. Nathan is flabbergasted at Toriel having a sock drawer, but Lewis' girlfriend counters that Toriel may have socks for sock puppets, having Nathan conclude that Toriel could be the kind of person that plays with sock puppets. After reading Toriel's groan worthy bone pun, someone in the livestream chat proclaims that Ted and Toriel should be paired up.
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair
Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22

Luigi!Johnny: CHEATER!(everyone bursts into laughter)Ryan: IT BEGINS!
- Part 4, Johnny ends up a few spaces away from the star with just enough coins to buy it before landing on a duel space, and he decides to bet a star against Ryan, thinking that he would still have more stars than him if he lost (which he does). On the next turn, he get's enough spaces to reach the star... and fails to see the bank space right in front of it until it's too late, sending the rest of the group into hysterics.
Johnny: I. Hate. Everything.
Ninja Baseball Bat Man
- Windy Plane (the boss of the first stage) comes back for a rematch in the final stage, making Ryan dejectedly proclaim "Oh God, Boss Rush!", and in the background you can hear the entire audience groaning. Averted because Windy Plane was the only returning boss, with the next one being the final boss.

I think subconsciously I knew this wasn't a very good show.Ryan: Not even for My Little Pony, Ted?Johnny: I was actually about to say the say same thing.Ryan: *Laughs*Johnny: I wouldn't say in shame because I was enjoying what I was watching, *Starts Chuckling* But I'd pause it or hide the window as soon as somebody walked into my room.Amanda: (Laughing) I can see that, cover the screen!
