Every time someone has died in Wave Ocean's Mach Speed section... and realizes that the "auto"save is very sporadic and requires beating a stage (not a sidequest, a full stage) to activatenote or you can save in the hub world via the pause menu before entering Wave Ocean, but the game doesn't tell you you can do that, thus booting them back to the opening cutscene at the very beginning of the game. It has famously happened to pokecapn, Game Grumps, Clement J 642, James Rolfe, Retsupurae, Nerd³, and slowbeef.
When Amy jumps Silver assuming he's Sonic, Silver's reaction is priceless. He looks like he's going to wet himself.
Sonic tossing the holographic device with Eggman's message in it back to Knuckles, with the device just kind of floating over there instead of looking like it was thrown. Knuckles then fumbles to catch it with his large mitten hands and drops it on the ground. He proceeds to stomp on it angrily while glaring at Sonic.
Sonic declares that he's going to where Eggman told him to go. Tails, who previously pointed out that it probably will be a trap, doesn't seem to have a problem with that plan... but Knuckles throws his arms as if he was saying "I can't believe these guys". Knuckles was being the Only Sane Man.
Until the four or five-hundredth time it happens to you, watching Sonic start breakdancing during the Mach Speed sections makes it all worth it.
Mephiles exiting the scene by twirling off screen◊ like a ballerina. Okay, possibly not originally intended by programmers, as it appears the character model sets back to the default pose, but his ears and hand clearly show that Mephiles spun at least 360 degrees before the scene cuts back to Silver and Blaze, who never acknowledge it. Now watch the scene while anticipating the action, and you may get a giggle or two.
Mephiles tripping over his own feet(?) once he picks himself up off the ground after being bounced like a ball after "Mephiles Phase 1" is finished. Even while trying to open a portal to escape, he's still having trouble standing upright after that hit. Almighty Super Being, indeed!
Shadow's reaction to an entirely unremarkable bit at the end of Flame Core. The subtitle renders it as "Ack!", but the sound he makes is something more like "RRRRRRRAGGAHHHaaaa...!"
The cutscene after you defeat the Egg Wyvern. The mech explodes in pieces, Eggman's seat is ejected... and on the way down it hits a piece of debris and start spinning sideways. It's hilarious to watch.
When Shadow reverses while driving a buggy, he puts a hand on the seat next to him and looks over his shoulder – standard safety protocol for backing up a car. It's amusing to consider that of all the things this game should have gotten right, someone instead put their time into making sure Shadow was practicing safe driving.
For some reason, every time a character makes a motion with their hand, there's a sound effect like a glove being shaken. It's kind of funny that the programmers thought that was important to put that effect in there, and funnier still when there's a dramatic/sad/important moment, and it gets botched by the stupid sound effect.
Kung-Fu Jesus: ...so yeah, it is amazing, but not in the right way. medibot: It's kinda like on those nature shows on PBS. Kung-Fu Jesus: No, it's not. medibot: Well except, y'know, more trains and less animals. IlluminatusVespucci: Mutual of Omaha presents Oh Fuck, A Bomb!
The further the Goons get into the game, the more cynical and snarky they become.
Silver: This is so unbelievable... Medibot: Saying what we're all thinkinnggggg... IlluminatusVespucci: "I can't believe they actually made a game this bad!" Silver: Now... I must fight for the future! Pokecapn: Noooooo— IlluminatusVespucci: -dismissively laughs- Yeeessss! Pokecapn: Just get to the action stages.
The Goons begin lifting clusters of rocks using Silver's telekinesis, but they quickly find out the rocks don't separate into individual parts - the clusters are just sort of glued together.
Kung-Fu Jesus: That's... really bad. IlluminatusVespucci: You've got rock friends. Medibot: Are you just gonna collect as much rock as you can? Pokecapn: -laugh- What do you think? Medibot: I think collecting rock is a good idea. (They run into a family having a picnic while Silver is still holding the rocks. They start swinging the rocks around.) Kung-Fu Jesus: PFFT! "Nice picnic you're having!" Medibot: This is what I'm talking about! Pokecapn: If this was implemented better, it would definitely be asshole physics.
Kung-Fu Jesus: "Follow the Egg Carrier." Medibot:Follow the Owl Carrier. Kung-Fu Jesus: Have we even seen the Egg Carrier? Pokecapn: ...We haven't seen it. Medibot: We just assume there is one. Kung-Fu Jesus: It's like a movie called "Horses! Horses! Horses!", and there's not a single fucking horse in the whole movie!
This moment in the Aquatic Base, when they start playing as Knuckles, and the camera and controls work together to become as unwieldy as possible.
"Great!" "GREAT, THE CAMERA SHAT ITSELF!"
The beginning of Shadow's story – the audio was deleted and they had to redo their commentary... and the dialogue. With the voices of the characters of Metal Gear Solid. Keep in mind that this was recorded AFTER the end of the LP. Also, this:
pokecapn: Hey, Sonic-2006-ites, this is still pokecapn... IlluminatusVespucci: This is still IlluminatusVespucci. Kung-Fu Jesus: This is still... poke... capn... ew. (They all start laughing.) medibot: And this is new and improved, with 50% less fat medibot!
A bizarre conversation during that video leads to this wonderful statement from a possibly-drunk Kung-Fu Jesus.
medibot: We'll have to put IlluminatusVespucci in a basket made of reeds and float him down the river. Kung-Fu Jesus: He'll be found by an Egyptian princess, and her name will be "Rose Red". And she'll found a hospital for cancer children. And then it will be haunted. And then we'll have to hire a paranormal investigator. And...well, you know the rest of the story.
Mephiles' voice near the end of video 19 is nothing short of hilarious, especially when combined with his zombie-like behavior and the sound-effects courtesy of the other goons.
"I'm Mephiles, Mephiles the Dark. And I cut myself, sometimes..."
E-123 Omega: What is Eggman up to? Who is Mephiles? IlluminatusVespucci: He's Satan, you bitch!
GUN Agent: Agent Shadow, we've lost contact with Agent Rouge. Head to the warehouse district immediately. Pokecapn: We've lost contact?! She's only like one mile away from where I am! Kung-Fu Jesus: Call her on her cell phone!
Shadow's duel with Silver is as... well-designed as one would expect.
Silver: HOW 'BOUT THIS?! Pokecapn: Shit on it! (defeats Silver and proceeds to use Chaos Spear repeatedly) Kung-Fu Jesus: Take shits all over his face! Shadow:(upon receiving a B Rank) Guess that was alright. Medibot: Yeah, it... doesn't even fuckin' matter.
Kung-Fu Jesus:...Great.(right as he says this, the physics in the game proceed to collapse. Description of the scene is impossible.) Pokecapn: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! Goons:(uncontrollable laughter) Medibot: What was that, son?!
The Goons discussing the logistics of Eggman being an inter-dimensional being while completely ignoring the scene where Amy and Elise discuss love is highly amusing.
Earlier in the playthrough, during the confrontation between Mephiles and Shadow, rather than feel ensnared by the drama and suspense of the scene, they munch on chips.
pokecapn: It's Thriller Night in the Aquatic Base. Kung-Fu Jesus: Yeah, I know. Robotnik gets all his dudes together- medibot: It's so marginally excellent! Kung-Fu Jesus: Marginally. medibot: Well it's just, y'know, it's the little things, I guess, in this train wreck of a game, the little things make us happy. Kung-Fu Jesus: And I'm pretty sure most of this was unintentional. medibot: I don't care! pokecapn: They probably genuinely thought this was someone crying out in pain, and not a worm dancing.
A side conversation while running through Kingdom Valley for the third time.
Kung-Fu Jesus:This is like the music fromGladiator when he's dying, y'know? That's how we feel right now. medibot: We're dying. Kung-Fu Jesus: We're dying, and we're at the end. medibot: We're dying for Sonic Team's sins. Kung-Fu Jesus: ...Well, I am Kung-Fu Jesus.
The tragic cutscene that kicks off the final chapter.
As the LP nears the end, the fact that only medibot has gotten a full eight hours sleep at all this whole time starts to catch up with them, and the LP starts to mesh into one long CMoF as they get progressively less coherent.
One of the contests has viewers coming up with explanations for how Eggman could outrun Sonic before the final boss fight in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Explanations ranged from Eggman possessing speed bladders with excess fast to being shaped like an ostrich (because ostriches run fast as fuck) to just finally being face-to-face with Sonic for the first time with no death machines between them and running on pure adrenaline.
pokecapn: His mouth! Jesus! Kung-Fu Jesus: Yes? pokecapn: I-it's bad. Make it go away. (...) Eggman: Now, allow me to introduce to you my latest creation. pokecapn: Teeth!
Thanks to pokecapn getting an X-Play reviewer's name wrongnote (it's Adam Sessler, for the record), the crew go off on a brief Adam Sandler tangent. They eventually let pokecapn finish what he was originally going to say – and then they start on the Adam Sandler tangent again, with impersonations.
