He raced in

. It now has its own page. He followed this up with a
Versus on his channel.
Current Let's Plays: Games JoshJepson has collaborated with someone on: (on their channels) Games in Josh's "Highlights" series (Highlights of an hour long gaming session): Tropes Used Include: Accidentally Accurate: At the start of , Josh and Rayman Origins Super Jeenius nickname the game "Rayman Oranges" after Josh slurs the pronunciation. Then the opening cutscene features Rayman...eating oranges, and orange slices are a recurring enemy in the game. They repeatedly point out how strangely appropriate the spur-of-the-moment joke becomes. Added Alliterative Appeal: "A female fish falling fast" from episode 18 of . Rayman Origins Alliterative Name And That's Terrible: From Ocarina of Time, "Also, he wants to rape me, and that's not very nice!" Armor-Piercing Question: In one of his Jepscon vlogs, he begins arguing with Chuggaaconroy and ProtonJon (well, mainly Jon) over vlogging and claims it to be an art. The others begin mocking this, then... Josh
: Let's put this in perspective here. Is
Chugga and Jon: Oooooh... (Chugga points at Josh in a "good point" manner) Atomic F-Bomb: Many times Big "NO!": Often occurs, but his best is easily during the Luigis Mansion versus; it's so big he disappeared for the rest of the video. Big "YES!": Tends to take this trope to insane levels for a short time upon completing one of those levels. Blood Knight: States his intent early on in his Fallout 3 LP to play through the game as one of these. Brick Joke: An offhand joke about coming back to play a particularly difficult level in Donkey Kong Country Returns when the world ends on 21st December 2012 actually results in a bonus video of Josh and Super Jeenius playing through That One Level, uploaded on that date. Butt Monkey: Whenever Josh collaborates with any other LP'er(s), he seems to have about a fifty-fifty chance of becoming this. Call a Rabbit a "Smeerp": In the DK Country Returns LP, both players decide that bananas are Blanabbas. Less consistently, they will also insert Ls into the names of other things in the game, such as puzzle pieces becoming 'pluzzle polices'. Catch Phrase: "Jesus Grandma!" "Swiiiirly X! Swiiiirly! "It's not supposed to go at an angle!" In his Ocarina of Time LP, "And may your X not go at an angle" was his standard way to finish a video. "Oh my god what was the heck was the what the what the what?!" "Stars... Lord knows I need 'em." "YOU'RE SO SCREWED!" "FIYABALLS? YUM!" "Two at a time, every single time!" "Duh, dummy!" "Was that so hard? Yes, yes it was." "KAMEK YOU FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!" "Oh, no! Oh, little boy, I'm so sorry!" "... and I'll see you, in the next one." There are a few both he and Super Jeenius use in , such as "So sad, bad dad", "Props where credit is due", " Donkey Kong Country Returns NOPE--Chuck Testa", " My body is/isn't ready" and " X for DAAAAYS". Some of these reappear in , along with others such as " Rayman Origins Balls on chair--now I'm ready for some things", one of them referring to 'lumms' and the other correcting the pronunciation to 'looms', and mispronouncing the word 'Origins' in the title in different ways. When picking up a Hearts Are Health item, saying "It's a HUUUUMAN HEAAAART!" in a horrified, hammy voice. Cluster F-Bomb: Episode 16 of Quantum Conundrum gives us "Fucking-congratu-fucking-lations!" Cuteness Proximity: Just hear him talking the first time (or any other time for that matter) he finds "Poochy" in Yoshi's Island. Josh constantly mentions how adorable everything in Ilomilo is. He once barfed from cuteness overload. Curse Cut Short/ Sound Effect Bleep: In his Ocarina of Time LP he uses SHI*CLANG* a lot. Damn You, Muscle Memory: In , Josh plays as Donkey Kong and Jake ( Donkey Kong Country Returns Super Jeenius) as Diddy Kong, who has a jetpack. Sometimes Jake will jump on Josh's back, which lets Josh use the jetpack to hover, but just when he's got used to having it, they split up and then he keeps falling into pits due to expecting to be able to hover and not being able to. Jake claims he's doing this deliberately to make Josh fail. Epic Fail: In his Limbo LP, Josh comes across an obvious trap and tells himself not to jump in the large pit that sets up said trap. He goes in anyway. Failed a Spot Check: In part 1 of the Four Swords Adventures LP with Nintendo Capri Sun, Super Jeenius, and P Cull 44444, they step on a group of switches which spawns a couple of big green force gems and a couple of chests right between them. They immediately grab the force gems and move on to the next screen without opening the chests or even taking notice of them. Fake Difficulty: He and Super Jeenius struggle with this in due to several glitches. Rayman Origins Girlfriend in Canada: Amusingly enough, Josh literally has one. Gorn: He gets the "Bloody Mess" perk in Fallout 3 to invoke this. Gosh Dang It to Heck!: gives us "MOTHERFATHER!" Donkey Kong Country Returns Hype Backlash: Regarding Raphael the Raven's boss fight. After hearing numerous people rave about how awesome it was, the fact that it was so lengthy and frustrating did not endear it to him. He admitted it was cool, but he didn't find it fun. Iconic Item: Josh has a random painting of a cow in his apartment, which is often referenced by people doing fanart or animations of him. In a different way, his quiff and goatee. If I Wanted X, I Would Y: When Josh starts making vagina references in episode 18 of , Rayman Origins Super Jeenius replies that if he wanted to play a game with Tyler... Incredibly Lame Pun: A Running Gag in is them doing this with the letters K, O, N, G they have to collect in each level. Some of these started out as Donkey Kong Country Returns Accidental Puns. They also often say the last part in unison. Examples:
"There's the K" "I'll get the K" "...
"Where's the O?" "There it is!" "
"We've got the K and the O, now we're
"Where's the G?" "There's the G!" "
Gee!" Insistent Terminology: In their Rayman Origins LP, Super Jeenius constantly reminds Josh that Lums are supposed to be pronounced differently. It doesn't seem to stick. It Runs in the Family: In his Jepscon vlog where he visits his family in New England, we discover that Josh's grandfather is just as snarky as he is. I Was Beaten by a Girl: Josh's girlfriend claimed in one vlog that she regularly beats him at . Call of Duty Large Ham: He occasionally throws his mic levels into the red. Let's Get Dangerous: When he gets serious about finishing a hard level, he gets completely silent to focus. He describes this as taking a cue from Super Jeenius, who did this as well when they played together. Donkey Kong Country Returns Let's Play-ing Against Type: Josh's first 14 LP's were all of games that were T-rated at most. His fifteenth one is the much Darker and Edgier Limbo. Madness Mantra: "It's not supposed to go at an angle!" started out as this. Mood Whiplash: Two. Firstly, he jumped from the relatively child-friendly straight into a blind LP of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past . He knew it was dark, but didn't know how dark until his player (a young child) missed the first jump and got impaled on a spike in a spray of blood. LIMBO His optimism about the project got pretty somber from there. And now he's gone from that onto the sickeningly sweet note . ilomilo Most Annoying Sound: In , the spinning platforms. " Yoshi's Island This is obnoxious. This is obnoxious. This is obnoxious. This is obnoxious..." My Friends... and Zoidberg: In one of his "Jepscon" vlogs: Proton Jon:
I got three assholes with me and they're kinda dicks... Like, look at the face on
. Face only a mother could love.
And then we got
No, actually, he's pretty cool. Then we got... well, we got
The Nicknamer: He gives nicknames to many of the enemy types and objects in . Also, "Bitchfish" from Yoshi's Island The Wind Waker. Nostalgia Filter: Invoked in , which Josh says is objectively not a good game, but one he still likes just because he happened to play it when he was a kid. Glover Perfectly Cromulent Word: "Culpritty", according to Super Jeenius in . Donkey Kong Country Returns In the same LP, they refer to collecting all four K, O, N, G letters in a level as "Konging it" or "We Konged the level!" Episode 13 of gives us "excellate". Rayman Origins Pre-Platform Hell One Liner: Pungeon Master: He's become this during the Glover LP. A Rare Sentence: " Whoa! I completely overshot the lime!" " That's not something you hear every day." Rim Shot/ Sting: In episode 5 of Glover. Running Gag: When reading out onscreen instructions, he replaces any reference to buttons with "something". So for example a caption reading "press A to rotate the item screen and B to close the inventory" will be read as "press something to rotate the item screen and something to close the inventory". Schmuck Bait: In the last episode of , while they're doing difficult jumps between floating platforms, Donkey Kong Country Returns Super Jeenius tells Josh "There's a giant Blanabba (banana) in the background, don't look at it!" Of course he does and immediately misses the jump and dies. Screams Like a Little Girl: During Donkey Kong Country Returns episode 16. Seinfeldian Conversation: Josh and Super Jeenius are prone to them in their co-ops, and also Josh and Tyler in their Versus projects to a lesser extent. Shame If Something Happened: Referenced by Super Jeenius in Part 24 of . Donkey Kong Country Returns Sir Swears-a-Lot: Varies. At one point he started to cut back on or censor the swearing in his own LPs, though he still swore A LOT in his collaboration videos. Later, he returned to swearing in his own videos. Speak In Unison: Josh and Super Jeenius do this a lot in . Donkey Kong Country Returns Spoonerism: "Hentacle Tentai" in episode 15 of . Rayman Origins Spiritual Successor: The co-op is this to the Rayman Origins LP, both because Josh and Donkey Kong Country Returns Super Jeenius team up again with the same dynamic and because (as they point out) the games are so similar. Straight Man and Wise Guy: Josh has this dynamic with Super Jeenius when they team up for co-ops. Usually Josh is the Straight Man and Jeenius is the Wise Guy, but sometimes they trade roles. Stupid Statement Dance Mix: People seem fond of making these for "Oh my god! What the heck was the what the what the what?". Some example here and here Suicidal Gotcha: Of an accidental variety, but in the level "Goonie Rides," he found himself plummeting into the abyss, shouting and weeping, sure he was done for... only to see Yoshi rise from the bottom of the screen, having landed on the back of a random Goonie flying by. From his perspective, it probably counts. Yoshi's Island Tempting Fate: In episode 23 of "Donkey Kong Country Returns", Super Jeenius takes the top path of a level and Josh reassures him the bottom path won't have any of the things they need to collect, like a letter...only for a letter to immediately appear down there. That Came Out Wrong: Referring to the upward slap attack in Rayman Origins: "This way, we can knock each other up and that sounded really strange." That One Level: Considers Tiny-Huge Island, Tick Tock Clock, and Rainbow Ride to each be this type of level. In-Universe. That's What She Said: In episode 23, about platforms that rise out of the lava and are temporarily red-hot and cause damage, but Donkey Kong Country Returns not when they sink back in: Verbal Tic: Super Jeenius in comments "Lol!", "Sad!" and "Neat!" a lot in reaction to things in the game, and both he and Josh say "Nice!" Donkey Kong Country Returns Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Feels this way about Buzzy Beetles in Mario side-scrollers. In his Highlights video of he starts rambling about their secret evil plans in a Super Mario World Conspiracy Theorist fashion. With Lyrics: He and Super Jeenius sing some Lyrical Dissonance lyrics along to Zelda's Lullaby in part 21 of . Donkey Kong Country Returns Worth It: Collaborating with Lucahjin on "This Barbie Horse Adventures. may have just ruined my Let's Playing reputation. But it was worth it for 'My Balls.'" You Have Researched Breathing: Josh and Jake call out for having things like slapping and swimming as 'powers' you have to unlock and get from nymphs. Rayman Origins You Keep Using That Word: Often refers to health points as Lives. No, not even Life, Lives.
