* Any trailer where at least one of the quotations read in the EveryEpisodeEnding are of an actor or entertainer who recently passed away:
** In honor of the late Creator/RobinWilliams, the phrases read by the narrator at the end of the trailer for ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' were all iconic phrases from Williams' movies.
** The next week (''Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}'') one of the phrases read at the end was "It's ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''!" in honor of that show's late announcer Don Pardo.[[note]]A bit of BeamMeUpScotty is in effect here, as Pardo's famous quote was actually "Live from New York, it's ''Saturday Night''!"[[/note]]
** And at the end of the next Honest Trailer (WebVideo/CinemaSins' ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' trailer notwithstanding), for ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'', one of the phrases at the end of that trailer was "Welcome... to Film/JurassicPark!" in memory of Richard Attenborough, who played the park's creator John Hammond in the film.
** At the end of the trailer for ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1'', released four days after Creator/LeonardNimoy's passing, every quote read at the end was dialogue said by or about [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Spock]] in honor of Nimoy's [[IAmNotSpock most iconic character]].

** The first two quotes at the end of the ''Film/FantasticFour2005'' trailer were in honor of Wrestling/RoddyPiper, who had died several days before.

** Creator/WesCraven was honored at the end of the trailer for ''Film/TheHappening'' by having all the quotations at the end relate to his films.

** ''Film/PearlHarbor'':
*** Music/DavidBowie was honored at the end of the trailer, having the last three quotations being lyrics from his songs. Fittingly, the very next Honest Trailer after ''Pearl Harbor'' was for ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''.
*** The "Starring" section includes an "Also Not Starring..." for some of the RealLife heroes of Pearl Harbor: Kenneth Taylor and George Welch,[[note]]A pair of buddy fighter pilots, not unlike Creator/BenAffleck and Creator/JoshHartnett's respective characters in the movie, who fought in the battle and took down six Japanese airplanes together.[[/note]] Alice and Dean Darrow,[[note]]A nurse and fighter pilot who met when she treated him after the battle and who married each other.[[/note]] Annie Fox,[[note]]The first woman in the United States military to earn a Purple Heart.[[/note]] and "literally anyone else who was at Pearl Harbor."
** The ''Labyrinth'' trailer also had its own tribute to Creator/AlanRickman, as all but one of the lines read at the end of that trailer were lines Rickman said in his films. The one line Rickman had ''not'' said was: "[[Film/DieHard Happy trails, Hans]]."
** The ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' trailer had a brief tribute to deceased modern-day WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes voice actor Joe Alaskey: "You're dethspicable".
** The second ''Series/GameOfThrones'' trailer commemorated Music/{{Prince}}; in addition to having the lyrics to "When Doves Cry" read out by Epic Voice Guy as the final quote, the second-to-last quote was "Goodnight sweet Prince".
** The ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' trailer ended with the narrator saying "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" as a tribute to UsefulNotes/MuhammadAli, who died a few days before the trailer was uploaded.
** The ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' trailer gave tribute to Creator/AntonYelchin, who died in a car accident a few days before the trailer was uploaded, with the lines "I can do zat!" and "Ensign Authorization code: nine-five-wiktor-wiktor-two!", both from his first appearance as Pavel Chekov in the first of the new ''Film/StarTrek'' movies.

YOU LOOSE!!! GOOD DAY, SIR!!!", "[[Film/TheProducers I'm in pain and I'm wet and I'm still hysterical!]]", and "We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams."
** The trailer for ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' had a two-fer tribute: "[[Film/ANewHope Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?]]" and "[[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack Why you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerfherder!]]" for Creator/CarrieFisher, and "[[Film/SinginInTheRain Good morning! Good morning! It's great to stay up late!]]" for her mother, Creator/DebbieReynolds.
** The trailer for ''Film/{{Logan}}'' quotes "[[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 The coldest blood runs through my veins. You know my name.]]" in tribute to Music/ChrisCornell of Music/{{Soundgarden}} and Music/{{Audioslave}}, who died a week ago.

* In the Honest Trailer for ''Videogame/TheLastOfUs'', the narrator states that the game has the biggest challenge in videogame history: [[TearJerker Keeping it together during the giraffe scene.]] Said clip from the game is played, with the narrator trying his best not to cry.
* In the Honest Trailer for ''Disney/TheLionKing'', there are comparisons drawn between that movie and ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. The punchline to this?
-->'''Narrator:''' ''[about ''Frozen'']'' [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike I knew there was a reason I liked that movie!]]
* Likewise, the narrator says that ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'' being MerchandiseDriven is just inevitable, not inherently negative or damaging to the film, and feels that he wants to buy some Legos after doing the trailer. The narrator even remembers it fondly in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'' trailer as an example of how "even shameless marketing can be fun," whereas ''Minions'' for him is just a "cynical studio branding exercise."
* This part in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'':
-->'''Narrator:''' Big movies these days have all become about special effects! When all we really want is a good story... about a hero ''[sniff]'' who gives his life ''[whimper]'' to save the world... ''[as John and the T-800 hug]'' ...even if it means [[CryCute leaving behind... ''sob''... the only people who ever loved him...]] ''[breaks down crying as Sarah hugs John]'' What? [[SandInMyEyes I'm not crying! You're crying!]] It's just a big dumb action movie! [[CryCute Stop Looking At Me!]]
* The ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Furious 7]]'' trailer compliments the, surprisingly, very heartfelt and tasteful way the film handled the death of Paul Walker and said goodbye to his character.
-->'''Narrator:''' Wow, I honestly never expected a ''Fast and Furious'' movie to make me cry. That was really well done. ''[referring to the transition to the "Starring" list]'' So... this is an awkward transition...
* The ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' trailer cites Creator/JossWhedon's CreatorBreakdown over the film, and sympathizes with him.
-->'''Narrator:''' [Joss Whedon] does his best to meet [[FanDumb unrealistic nerd expectations]] [...] and fit in Creator/{{Disney}}'s corporate [[{{Dualvertisement}} cross-promotion]], in a juggling act so insanely difficult, he turned down [[Film/AvengersInfinityWar the sequel]], quit Website/{{Twitter}}, and doesn't have any new films in development. Oh, um, guys? [[IThinkYouBrokeHim I think we just broke Joss Whedon.]] He needs a hug.
* Epic Voice Guy crying as he describes Bing Bong in the ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' trailer.
* In the ''Film/DieHard'' trailer:
** The entire trailer is they just completely gushing about how great the movie is, with Epic Voice Guy even chiding those who thought they would rip on a movie this awesome.
** Also the part with them praising Creator/AlanRickman for hitting the ground running with Hans Gruber, a fantastic villain that was Rickman's first major film role. This became more notable in that the trailer was made shortly ''before'' Rickman died.
* Putting together a trailer for ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' in just a week after Music/DavidBowie's death. Epic Voice Guy even starts out by saying they never thought they'd do this one, but needed an excuse to talk about how awesome Bowie was.
* After receiving several requests for it, the narrator says that the Honest Trailer for ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' was made "only because it's Valentine's Day, and we love you, alright?"[[note]]The trailer was released on February 9, 2016.[[/note]]
* The ''Insurgent'' trailer was the first after the 2016 UsefulNotes/{{Academy Awards ceremon|ies}}y. The last quote read at the end was "Yay! Creator/{{Leo|nardoDicaprio}} won an Oscar!"
* In the ''Film/{{Batman}}'' trailer:
** Creator/MichaelKeaton's casting as Batman is called "one of the best superhero castings of all time".
** There's even a compliment paid to [[Film/SuicideSquad2016 Jared Leto's Joker]].
** Bob the Goon is listed as "Creator/JackNicholson's Buddy, who Nicholson insisted on being in the movie or he wouldn't do it".
* While he finds many things to mock about ''Film/TheRevenant'', when it comes to the "Starring" part, the narrator credits Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio as "UsefulNotes/AcademyAward winner Leonardo [=DiCaprio=]," and then adds, "[[Main/IAlwaysWantedToSayThat Oh, it feels so good to say that]]!"
* The end of ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' trailer has it being compared to ''WesternAnimation/{{Talespin}}''. Epic Voice Guy adds that while the former was ok, the latter was "''freaking awesome!''"
* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'':
** Admitting that despite the outcry over Creator/BenAffleck as Batman, he wound up being awesome, and probably the best part of the movie. They also praise Creator/GalGadot for her performance as Wonder Woman, noting that she was very underused in the movie.
** Acknowledging that [=BvS=] had some cool moments that its harshest critics were too ashamed to admit were enjoyable and that its biggest flaw was putting too many good elements into a single film.
** If you look at the footage closely enough, you'll see that they targeted the better-received Ultimate Edition instead of the critically-panned theatrical cut. Despite all the jabs at the film's expense (such as criticizing the "Martha" twist and using the meme it inspired three times), they at least made the effort to target the film when it was at its best.
* For ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'', the narrator praises the cast for doing justice to their comic-book counterparts (except for Malin Åkerman) and gives special mention to Creator/JackieEarleHaley for nailing [[EnsembleDarkhorse Rorschach]].
* For ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'', the narrator basically spends the rest of the video ''gushing'' about the film, with only a few, minor nitpicks that doesn't stop his praise.
* For ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'', the narrator admits that while the movie ended up not being good, it still wasn't as horrible as everyone who made up their minds months in advance said it was going to be. TheStinger also defends the movie on the grounds that if you didn't like it, don't watch it and keep on stepping, and that there is ''no'' excuse for going after the cast for being in a mediocre movie. This is no doubt at least partly referring to the racist, sexist Twitter troll attack on Leslie Jones following the movie's release. Like ''Batman v. Superman'', this trailer also relied on the Extended Version, which attempted to address some of the theatrical cut's issues with continuity and characterization.
* For ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', the narrator spends most of the trailer calling the movie an inferior cash-in of ''Finding Nemo''. However, when [[spoiler:Dory reunites with her parents]], the announcer audibly starts sobbing.
-->'''Narrator:''' Damn you, Pixar, Even your B-material makes me cry!
* Despite generally hating ''Film/SuicideSquad2016'', the Honest Trailer praises the performances of Creator/WillSmith, Creator/MargotRobbie and even Creator/JaiCourtney, the latter of which they've been quoted as saying ''"is never going to happen"''.
* Likewise, despite clear disdain toward the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' franchise (made obvious when seeing the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' and ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' trailers), the narrator actually praising ''VideoGame/CallofDutyInfiniteWarfare'''s campaign, calling it "a step in the right direction".
* Offhandedly calling ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' a "perfect movie".
* In the Honest Trailer for ''Film/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'', the narrator congratulating Creator/KeanuReeves for managing to break out of his "surfer-dude" TypeCasting with ''Film/JohnWick''.
* The entire starring section of the ''Film/SpaceJam'' Honest Trailer is devoted to pointing out [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic how great the soundtrack]] of that film was.
* ''Film/JohnWick'' gets a special mention for taking advantage of modern film production technology to create cool, exciting action scenes and not relying on overused camera tricks like JitterCam or quick cuts to create tension.
* When the Honest Trailer for ''Film/LaLaLand'' becomes one for ''Film/Moonlight2016'', the "Starring..." section begins with, "Starring all these people who would have been thanked had that guy from Price Waterhouse Cooper not been too busy taking selfies to keep track of the envelope...", and proceeds to refer to all of the major cast members by their real names.
* The narrator finds ''Film/{{Logan}}'' to be so good that he's having trouble making fun of it, especially during [[{{Tearjerker}} very emotional scenes]] and RealityEnsues moments. Unable to bring himself to go on, he calls up Film/{{Deadpool}} to help out with some of his trademark irreverence. Surprisingly, [[EvenEvilHasStandards the Merc with a Mouth is equally in love with the movie and outright refuses to shit on Hugh Jackman's final hurrah as Wolverine]].
* When doing an honest trailer of ''{{WesternAnimation/Cars}}'', the narrator quickly realizes that the movie isn't nearly as bad as some people claim it to be, and thus he has hardly anything negative to say about it. So, he decides to let this movie be and to do ''WesternAnimation/Cars2'' instead.
