Lets Play: PewDiePie
aka: Pewdiepie
Ha-ha-ha-how's it goin', bros?

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePienote , is a Swedish YouTuber widely known for his Let's Plays of horror games. His reactions, recurring characters (usually resulting in Funny Schizophrenia), eternal hatred of barrels, tendency to curse, exceptional hamminess, and general randomness have gotten him a fairly large audience, but now his channel has become the most polarizing topic on YouTube. His Amnesia: The Dark Descent Let's Play, where most of his recurring "characters" came from,note  is also where he attracts most of his fans, which he calls his "Bro Army".

He was elected King of the Web on February 29, 2012. He is currently the most subscribed channel on YouTube (not counting YouTube's own channels) and holds a Guinness World Record for it. He now has over 26 million subs. His new website can be found here. Pewdie is also a philanthropist, having started multiple charities for causes from kids with cancer to providing clean drinking water, raising over a million dollars altogether.

His girlfriend Marzia now has her own page!

    Games Pew Die Pie Has Played or Is Playing 


His Let's Play videos include instances of:

    A-G 
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Pewds is certain that the ghost from the ventilation shaft in Exmortis 2 wanted to make out with him.
    • Jennifer is an immobile one.
  • Accidental Aiming Skills: How he once managed to chop off the head of a man with one swipe of an axe while flying out of his chair in fright.
  • Achievements in Ignorance: More then once has managed to win a difficult section by merely doing a stupid thing, that ended up being both smart, and crazy.
    • Hilariously his Outlast videos are a example. Early on he accidentally exited his Locker while a enemy was right in front of it with his back turned. Pewdie quickly hid in the one next to it, only for the enemy to check the locker he was originally in.
  • Aerith and Bob: His Mooks in Pulse: Jennifer, Lisa, Marcus, Annabelle... then Bengt and Fuckface.
  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Happened in-universe with Duck in the Walking Dead. Despite constantly hating on the character and showing visible disappointment when he wasn't killed on two occasions, Pewdie made it clear that he didn't want to shoot the infected Duck, showing surprise that he wasn't happy to see the kid die.
    Pewds: I'll let you be Robin next time. I'll let you be Robin.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Neither Jennifer or Piggeh get the love they want from Pewdie, no matter how often they try.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Stephano once slept with a Bro's girlfriend, Pewdie admires the asses of the grunts as well as the "assets" of any female he comes across, and Piggeh often tries to seduce Pew.
  • Amusing Injuries: His tendency to kick his table when he gets scared. Most notably when reading the story of the Bong Cheong Dong ghost.
  • Angrish: Is literally reduced to a mix of this and Laughing Mad when playing Unfair Mario.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: Piggeh got stuck with his head in a chest twice, and hoped that Pewdie would take advantage of the situation. He was disappointed.
  • Animal Motif: Felix seems to be associated with ducks quite a lot.
  • Arc Symbol: The brofist.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: In his Trials Evolution video, he begins to wonder what the point of some things are, gradually escalating until he begins to question the meaning of life...and then he questions the meaning of vegetables, since they taste like shit.
  • Artifact Title: He frequently lampshades how much he doesn't release Fridays with PewDiePie videos on actual Fridays.
  • As Long as It Sounds Foreign:
  • Ascended Fangirl: His girlfriend, CutiePie AKA Marzia, was originally just a fan he would talk to over Facebook. She later became a semi-regular staple of his videos.
  • Aside Glance: He does these when completely dumbfounded.
  • Atomic F-Bomb: In episode 27 of his Calling playthrough, after a botched attempt to teleport to the basement using Hina's cell phone.
    "AHH! NO I'm sorry I didn't mean to do it! Please don't kill me! NO NO NO AH NEJ NEJ AHH NOO NOOOOOOOOOO I DIDN'T SAAAAAVE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!"
  • Audience Participation: Pewdiepie loves interacting with fans and sometimes asks the viewers what he should do next in games that give him choices. During his Dark Souls playthrough he even asked fans in the comments for hints or tips to help him progress through the Nintendo Hard game.
  • Ax-Crazy: When the game he plays allows him to be insane(r), he will try it out. Taken literally with his Condemned LP and the fire axe.
  • Awesome McCoolname: His middle names, Arvid Ulf, means "Forest Wolf."
  • Bad Santa: A really sadistic Santa in Happy Wheels.
    Run you dirty peasants/little shits!
  • Bag of Holding: The new PewDiePie backpack, if Pewdie is to be believed.
    • In the video, the backpack contained graphic novel, a guitar, a little Smough statue, a skateboard, Maya, a Jake the Dog hat, and a pair of glasses.
  • Beat: "PewDiePie Processing Mode"
  • Berserk Button: The mere sight of BARRELS!
    • In his walkthrough of The Walking Dead, he becomes very attached to and protective of Clementine, the little girl the player character takes in. Her being in danger often gets always gets a spazy scream out of Pewds. He also gets very attached to Ellie from the Last of Us.
  • Big Brother Instinct: For Clementine and Ellie most obviously, but also for Jodie. This is most glaring when Jodie has her shower scene and rather than eating the eye candy, he comments on her drying method.
  • Big "NO!": Sometimes even in Swedish.
    • Happened while playing "Limbo", when he thought in the end that he had gone to where he started from and thought he'd have to do it all again. Luckily, he didn't.
    • Occurs in "Ikenie No Yoru: Night of the Sacrifice", when the yellow character which Pewds named Stephanie (because she resembles Stephano) jumps off a cliff, killing herself. Pewds is heartbroken at this.
    • He lets out a very prolonged one in Corpse Party when he discovers that Mayu has been smashed against the wall and turned into a shapeless pile of gibs.
    • He does one at the end of "Pizza Delivery".
    Pewdie: I was a pizza all along! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO—
    (THANKS FOR WATCHING!)
    Pewdie: --OOOOOOOO! Actually, that's a good thing.
  • Big Word Shout: As a general rule, most of the things that come out of Pewdie's mouth are shouted. However, he was prone to shouting "STEPHANOOO!" and "PIGGEEH!" especially loud almost every time he encountered them in earlier playthroughs. His most well known shout, however, has to be BARRELS!.
  • Big "YES!":
    • He dropped many of these during the Ao Oni playthrough whenever he managed to escape from the titular Oni.
    • Subverted at one point in the same walkthrough, when he's hidden behind a chair and thinks that the Oni has disappeared. He raises his arms up and begins to shout "YES", only for another one to blast through the closet and start the chase again.
      Pewdie: Da FUCK, Man? Da FUCK?
  • Bilingual Bonus:
    • The Italian spoken at the menuscreen in the playthrough of Afraid Of Monsters. Pewdie didn't know what was said either.
    • Anytime he finds Martin or a POLISBILnote , he will speak Swedish.
    • Sometimes he curses in Italian, like in the first episode of the Unfair Mario playthrough and in his Get On Top video, where he said "Vaffanculo" ("fuck you") a few times, and often curses in Swedish when exasperated.
    • He has a habit of cursing in Swedish.
  • Bishōnen: He is pretty damn fabulous, after all.
  • Bittersweet Ending: His Journey playthrough. Part four (the penultimate episode) has a jarring Downer Ending when Pewdie's accomplice Bengt freezes to death on the mountain, but part five concludes the series with bucketfuls of Sweet Dreams Fuel, and Pewdie manages to complete the game for Bengt.
  • Black Comedy: He tends to lapse into this at frequent intervals.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Infamous for frequently joking about it in his pre-Retsupurae videos. People who watched the parody were appalled at how often Felix made jokes along these lines (in their 7.5 minute video montage, he said it at least twenty times, the first of which is the second word he says), and expressed disdain for him accordingly. After the incident, there was enough of an outcry against this line of humor that he decided that he would stop making rape jokes.
  • Blatant Lies: During his playthrough of Cat Mario 3, Pewds promises not to swear after doing so quite a bit for the first half of the video. After 15 deaths in a very short amount of time, he predictably snaps and lets loose a lengthy Cluster F-Bomb.
    • Then there's this gem:
    Marzia: Felix?
    Pewdie: Yeah?
    Marzia: Are you using my high heels?
    Pewdie: ...no. [beat]
  • Body Horror: Too many instances to count, whether it be thumbnails or in-game.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick:
    • In one of his own custom mods.
    "You wake up with a pounding head, a slight pain in your neck and a swollen penis."
    • Letting Piggeh talk for too long causes this.
  • Broken Tears: At the end of the first part of his Dark Souls II LP.
  • Bumbling Dad: Up to Eleven with Pewdie's voice over.
    Son: Dad, I lost my arm!
    Dad: I DON'T CARE!
  • Buxom Is Better: Rebecca from Nosferatu strongly motivated him to play the game.
  • Call Back: In his Outlast LP, Pewdie comes across a wall of rocks that are blocking his path. He then says "Jennifer has fucked us."
    • When he finds a giant boulder in Goat Simulator, guess what he calls it?
  • Catchphrase:
    • In almost every video: "H-H-How's it going, bros? My name is PeeeeewDiePiiieee!"
      • Double Subverted in a couple of Happy Wheels videos: "My name... why do you always need to know my name? Of course my name is PeeeeewDiePiiieee!.
      • Subverted during his playthrough of McPixel, where he opened one of his videos with "My name is Macpewdie and welcome back to more McPixel."
      • Subverted during his newer videos, where he says "My name is (gibberish)".
    • Another main one is "And welcome toooo...(name of game)!"
    • "Notice me, senpai!"
    • When playing horror games, he often says "Hello?"
    • Whenever he dies in Alice: Madness Returns, he'll say "I became a butterfly!"note , and eventually it made its way to other series.
    • In The Last of Us, while using the El Diablo gun he'll say "EL DIABLO!"
    • When he picks up a confidential in Outlast, he'll say "Confidential? Not anymore!"
    • "I DON'T CAAAAARRRRE" for Irresponsible Dad.
    • Piggeh has "I'm Pumped!" and "Yeaaahh."
    • Stephano says "Allos, Pewdie" so often that it could be considered his catchphrase.
    • THAT'S HOW I ROLL! That's how I get all the laaadieees!
    • He tends to call people/things "little shits" quite a bit.
    • "What is this? What is all of this?"
    • He will often yell "SHUT UP!" at things that scare him, animate or inanimate.
    • "That's how we do it in the PewDiePie town!"
    • In Cry of Fear and Afraid Of Monsters at least, he tends to say "Oh no no no no senoritas everywhere!"
  • Catchphrase Spouting Duo: Pewdie and any character he manages to get hold of.
  • Chainsaw Good: He's positively ecstatic when he finds the bloody chainsaw weapon in Rise of Nightmares.
  • Christmas Episode: Pewdie was the first person to try the first Christmas themed mod for Amnesia.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Pewdie invokes this heavily, whenever he isn't in the company of one of his many "friends."
    Pewdie: Don't be hating, I'm a fucking unicorn.
    • Its been shown that, despite Marzia (Cutie Pie, his girlfriend) has acted as the "straight girl" when both play a videogame, she's more likely to fall into this territory.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Used liberally when being chased. He's also been swearing more in Swedish lately, using curses like "Fan!" ("Fuck", literally "The Devil") and "Helvete!" ("Goddamnit", literally "Hell").
    • During the final half of his Cat Mario 3 LP. What makes it funnier is that it starts after he had promised not to swear.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In his playthrough of Thirty Flights of Loving:
    Pewds: "Wanted: Armed Robbery, Conspiracy, Forgery, Bootlegging. Winston Borges." What? Your name's Winston?? You LIAR!
  • Companion Cube: Pewdie has a lot of these.
    • Stephano is a "talking" golden statue that shares most of Pewdie's fan art, and is usually found early on in custom stories made specifically for him.
    • Before he found Stephano, he would sometimes carry a human skull, Skully, who shared the same exact voice.
    • When Stephano is otherwise unavailable, Pewdie seeks the company of a diverse array of other characters, such as Piggeh (a dead pig), Mr. Chair (a chair) and Jennifer (a rock).
    • In his playthrough of Ghost Hunt, a survival horror map made with Garry's Mod, he calls the ghost detector Herky. He's apparently afraid of ghosts.
    • Segway Guy really like his vehicles, but especially Vespanote .
    • Subverted in his Black Snow playthrough
    Pewdie: "Alright flowers, tell me where your leader is."
    *beat*
    Pewdie: "Forgot flowers can't talk, shit!"
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass / Obfuscating Stupidity: Usually when he plays Trouble in Terrorist Town, he starts shooting people almost instantly regardless of whether or not he's innocent, gets killed, and causes the others much headache. However, in "PLEASE GIVE ME A LARGER PENIS", he acts innocent and maneuvers the others into killing each other off, with Ken being the only one left. Then he hunts down Ken, much to the surprise of everyone else.
  • Crossover: Pewdie played Dead Island together with Morfar, another Swedish Let's Player with a similar fan-artistic, yet smaller, fanbase. He also played the Co-op mode of Cry of Fear and is playing an ARMA mod called DayZ together with Cry, aka Chaotic Monki. Recently, Pewds did the co-op of Survivors with Ken aka Cinnamon Toast Ken and played GTAIV with Ian and Anthony from Smosh.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In Happy Wheels, when the Son gets the upper hand, he will try to lash out against his dad.
  • Don't Try This at Home: When he's about to start his walkthrough of Bully: Scholarship Edition, he also states that it's not a good thing to be a bully in real life.
  • Driven to Suicide: He once got so surprised by a jumpscare in one of his Amnesia LPs that he jumped out the window and killed himself in-game.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: An In-Universe example. During his playthrough of The Witch's House, when he reads the 'Funny Story' book and the chair laughs at the ending, Pewdie gets angry.
    Pewdiepie: YOU EVIL BITCHES! THAT IS NOT A FUNNY STORY!
  • Epic Fail:
    • One jumpscare in Ao Oni had him jumping in fright, alt-tabbing out of the game, revealing the walkthrough he was using.
    • In general, jump scares leave his leg in pain a lot, especially in the reading of Bongcheon Dong Ghost were he had to get a pillow in case another jump scare happened during the reading. He was right.
    • In general, first person jump scares is something Pewdie is terrible at, but even moreso First Person Platform Jumping. Once, he wound up hitting the "record" button by mistake as a result, which meant about a minute of game footage wasn't recorded (his webcam, however, was still on).
    • During the playthrough of Condemned: Criminal Origins, crashes caused him to cut the video short twice—in a row.
    • During his No Swear Electric Challenge, he manages to save himself from saying "fuck" via Last-Second Word Swap...only to swap it with another swear ("fine ass bitch").
  • Everyone Is Bi: It appears to be so with every male character.
  • Everything's Cuter with Kittens: Occasionally after a couple bad jump scares, he'll go into "cat therapy" and search up cats and kittens on Google Images.
  • Extreme Omnisexual: Piggeh. He'll even put the moves on barrels.
  • Eye Scream: His Surgeon Simulator 2013 eye transplant video. Poor Bob.
  • Famous Last Words: Captioned when Pewdie says "Please don't find me" while playing Amnesia: Killings in Altstadt.
  • Fan Community Nickname: Literally, his fans are known as "Bros", sharing the same name as the nicknamed Amnesia enemies. He also tend to call the skullhand from Afraid Of Monsters "Ruben", and then there's all the other characters he's made up.
  • Fan Disillusionment: He made a comment on the Retsupurae mocking him that implied he was Only in It for the Money. This upset some of his fans quite a bit. Weeks later, he made a video clarifying the comment in question and attempting to provide damage control.
  • Fan Disservice: His LET ME BE YOUR HERO! video. It's just Pewdie singing a cover of Enrique Iglesias' "Hero" while walking around and skipping stones—as well as groping, licking, and caressing his sex toy named Jerry. It gets kind of hard to watch.
    • Also, his Loadout video. Just watch it.
    • His Harlem Shake video, which featured him dancing in women's underwear. Through the underwear, his penis was rather...er...noticeable in the original video (which got flagged), so he had to re-upload it with a big censor on the spot.
  • Filler: Often, when he plays an Amnesia mod that is short in time length, Pewds would play another Amnesia mod, or, on one occasion, plays another horror game.
  • Flanderization: Compare Pewdie thennote  and Pewdie nownote .
  • Flipping the Bird: In his first Obscurity video at the end after a bad Jump Scare.
  • Follow the Leader: To be blunt: a shitload of Swedish newbie Let's Players have popped up, and all of them advertise themselves in comments on Pewdie's videos. All Swedes.
  • Foreign Cuss Word:
    • "Vaffanculo!"note . Greetings from Italy too, PewDie.
    • He also has a tendancy to say jävla helvetes, fan, and fitta. note .
  • Foreign Language Tirade: Dark Souls is so rage inducingly difficult for him that he spends most of the first episode speaking Swedish.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: TELEPORTING NAKED GUYS!
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: A common feature in his montage videos, usually poking fun at what Pewdie is saying or doing.
    • In select videos, you will see his desktop and you might be able to see some folders containing various types of porn.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason Irresponsible Dad is so....irresponsible towards his son is because Santa didn't give him any presents during his childhood.
  • Funny Foreigner: Boy howdy.
  • Fun with Acronyms: While playing To the Moon, Pewdie pronounces ADG to stand for "Angry Dinosaur Guillotine".
    • Similarly, in his playthrough of Slender: The Arrival, he pronounces PFD to stand for "PewDiePie's Fucking Dick".
    • Additionally, in his playthrough of The Crooked Man, he pronounces AED to stand for "Angry Evil Dick".
  • Fun with Subtitles: He'll usually subtitle his Swedish swears into English, and add little comments when something doesn't make sense. His early montage videos wrote what he and his characters said, but sometimes replaced words with images and punctuated with emoticons.
  • Gainax Ending: Occasionally.
  • GASP!: One of Pewds' default reactions to a jumpscare.
  • Gay Moment: For Valentine's Day, Pewds and Cry read a fanfiction about themselves.
  • Genre Savvy: Pewdie can generally predict certain twists in stories, such as Takuro actually being a traitor after having miraculously escaped the Oni. He's also this way about his fans' behavior in response to his actions, stating that he'll get "fifty-million comments about it" when he forgets the name of a game in his Shadow of the Colossus walkthrough.
  • Gilligan Cut: After recieving a ceramic barrel and a ceramic Slender Man, he tries standing Slendy upright in the barrel. One cut later, and Slendy's head first instead.
  • Giver of Lame Names: QWOP named his cat Rickulus, if Pewdie is to be believed.
  • Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex: Pewdie wanted to make babies with Stephano after surviving House of Creeps 3. Stephano reacted with disgust and anger... but after 15 seconds he said the exact same thing to Pewdie.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Has a habit of slipping back into Swedish and, oddly enough, Spanish, French or Italian. Despite this, in his Swedish commentary of Happy Wheels, Pewdie slips some English words in by accident several times.
  • Gratuitous German: Occasionally. "EDGAR! DEUTSCHLAND!"
    H-M 
  • Kick the Dog: His Calling LP was loaded with him saying how he didn't care about Reiko, who was already Driven to Suicide.
  • Knife Nut: This is what happens when any game decides to give him a knife.
    YOU SPEAK CHOPNESE!?
  • Lampshade Hanging: The ending of the first episode of his Conker's Bad Fur Day LP has Pewdie inviting Conker to do the outro. Pewdie then lampshades that he's voicing Conker doing the outro, claiming he's trying to be funny.
  • Large Ham.
  • Last-Second Word Swap: The No Swear Electric Challenge is chock full of them, natch.
  • Leave the Camera Running: At the end of episode 8 of Shadow of the Colussus, after doing his sign off, Pewdie gets pranked by his girlfriend.
  • Lecherous Licking: He does it a lot. Taken to disturbing extents in "LET ME BE YOUR HERO!".
  • Left It In: He has a habit of saying things like "Pewds of the future, edit this part out", or some variation, usually after messing up or saying something bad.
  • Lucky Translation: The statues have been known to shout "Hallo!", which means "hello" in German. It's pronounced almost exactly like the Swedish "Hallå!", which has the same meaning. What makes this so lucky is that during one of these custom stories, he promised to speak only in Swedish!
  • Made of Explodium: A series of shelves with chemicals in part three of Ghost Hunt. Cue explosion and ringing.
  • Manly Tears: Pewds cries on-camera for the first time during one of the particularly heart-wrenching moments during his walkthrough of The Walking Dead. The second time he cries, during the same walkthrough, he actually has to look away from the camera.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: When he and his girlfriend play Amnesia together. While Pewdie Screams Like a Little Girl, she laughs.
  • Mathematician's Answer: In his second Cleverbot video, he asked "What about you?" and it came out as "What about your ear?" Cleverbot replied "Yes."
  • Megane: Goes on and off, he doesn't really need the glasses.
  • Milestone Celebration: He's made a couple videos for hitting a certain amount of subscribers, or at least thanked his bros directly. He celebrated 10 million with the Charity: Water campaign.
  • Mind Screw:
    Disguised fake Pewds tries to poison Pewds 1 in cinnamon challenge. Disguised fake Pewds is actually Hitler Pewds PLOT TWIST Hitler Pewds tries to finish Pewds 1 off. Pewds 1 escapes without Hitler Pewds notices by replacing himself with Ragdoll Jerry. Hitler Pewds gets shot by Pewds 1. Hitler Pewds is actually in love with Ragdoll Jerry PLOT TWIST. Pewds 1 finishes Hitler Pewds off and dies much drama Pewds 1 steals Ragdoll Jerry for his girlfriend. A few days later ragdoll Jerry is depressed and thinks of the times him and Hitler Pewds had together. Ragdoll Pewds kills himself. Pewds 1 realizes he is broken/dead. The universe get's altered. Alpha and Omega. All that shit. The End.
    • The TIME FOR REVENGE! video, which is a sequel to the aforementioned video, features two new versions of Pewds as well as Pewds 2 aka Hitler Pewds. He goes into a bathroom, shaves, and becomes a priest. Then the video ends on a Cliff Hanger.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Guess who.
  • My Greatest Failure: Pewdie truly regrets that infamous comment he made in the midst of the Retsupurae controversy.
    N-T 
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: His response to finding out that Xuarest Xth killed his mother in Mad Father, and then killed her and wiped the blood off of her face just to notice how pretty she was was essentially:
    Pewds: That's... That's just... No.
  • Nonindicative Name:
    • Piggeh is actually a snake, according to one playthrough of an Amnesia mod.
    • The "statues" that he blames so often while playing Amnesia are actually suits of armour.
    • In his playthrough of "The Stanley Parable" he called a radiator a refrigerator and a refrigerator a radiator.
  • No Pronunciation Guide
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: Nothing Piggeh has tried in a attempt to seduce Pewdie has suceeded.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Two words: CATACOMBS CHALLENGE. Just imagine having to navigate by yourself through the real Paris catacombs with little information on what to do besides getting three keys. Not to mention the feeling that someone's going to pop out and scare you at any given moment, or at the same time be following you silently...
  • Notice This: The only thing that can guarantee that Pewdie find items in some of the games.
  • Not Quite Dead: Irresponsible Dad and JB can still talk even after being decapitated or turned into Ludicrous Gibs, lampshaded once in a while.
  • Not That There's Anything Wrong with That: Draws on this a lot in his playthrough of Cho Aniki.
  • N-Word Privileges: He's only used it once, and it was in this video.
  • Only in It for the Money: His infamous comment on the Retsupurae controversy implied this, but it's clearly not true.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted, as the majority of the bros know his real name.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Whenever he breaks character, it will be because he is genuinely scared. The second part of the Afraid Of Monsters playthrough has him terrified for minutes.
    • The only other time he breaks character is when he's genuinely saddened and on the verge of tears.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Pewds sometimes switches from English to Swedish in his walkthroughs, but he usually gives us subtitles when this happens.
  • Orphaned Series: Including, but definitely not limited to...
    • His playthrough of Parappa The Rapper was only three parts long, and Pewdie never got past the Full Tank level.
    • His Alice: Madness Returns LP is a more popular example. It went up to part 15 but will unfortunately never see a part 16, since Pewdie forgot his save file for the game when moving.
    • His Seaman playthrough, due to being too freaked out by the Death by Sex scene.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: In his walkthrough of the Cry of Fear custom story, The Stairway, there's one Jump Scare that doesn't get him. Pewdie himself is surprised.
  • Overly-Long Gag: His speech/eulogy after killing the patient named Bob in Surgeon Simulator 2013.
    Pewds: ""Surgery Failed"..."And it was going so well..."... Bob has left us, Bros... He was such a good friend... He was always there for me... I'm going to miss him so much... *sobs* ... His beautiful face, that I haven't seen.. Half of his nose, that I haven't seen either. It was.. special. What me and Bob had, it was something you see once in a lifetime... Bob was one of those guys you could just go out and have a beer with. And make out a little bit with. And it wouldn't be awkward the day after. Bob was that guy. He would actually touch my butt a lot, and it would tickle. In the nicest way... Bob knew how to treat me like a princess... *sigh* ... Bob... You will be remembered... I love you. One day, we'll meet again. And then... I will kiss you. I will gather the courage... and I will lick your nipples. Bob... Bob... *sobs*..."
  • Overly Narrow Superlative: Pewdie called Quickscope Simulator "the most accurate no-scope simulator" he's ever seen.
  • Papa Bear:
    • In his Playthrough of The Walking Dead, he becomes very protective of Clementine, the little girl that the player character takes in. At one point he even explicitly states that he'll stop playing the game if she gets killed off. The same applies towards Ellie from the Last of Us.
    • He's also very protective of Fluffy. He even states that he would uninstall the game if he died ( he doesn't, by virtue of never existing in the first place).
  • Pet the Dog: Quite literally, as Pewdie has had several dogs, the most famous being Maya (or Puga as they sometimes call her). Edgar's probably a close second.
  • Play the Game, Skip the Story: In-Universe. This was averted in his early playthroughs where he would take care to read the journals so common in horror games- however as time progressed he began to skip them more and more.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Said by Pewdie right before Bengt dies.
  • Pretty Boy / Mr. Fanservice: Guess who?
  • Previously On: Sometimes in LP series, Pewdie will give a quick recap of the previous episode. It usually follows this template:
    Pewdie (in strange accent): In the previous episode...
    (one-second recap of something from previous episode)
    Pewdie (in same accent): And the epic story continues...
  • Psycho Lesbian: One of his playthroughs of Facade ends up like this.
    Pewdie: "No lesbian love for you!"
  • Pyrrhic Victory: See Bittersweet Ending above.
  • Rage Quit: In part 17 of his Fahrenheit Let's Play, he just got up out of his chair and left his house for about a minute after Carla says "I love you" to Lucas after actually knowing him and being in the same room as him for about five hours tops.
    • He has done this several times now in his Dark Souls lets play often not coming back for several hours or even a day. To be fair though, the game tries it's hardest get this reaction out of anyone who plays it and is very good at inducing rage.
  • Rhyming with Itself:
    I know you love me, I don't care
    I sing Justin Bieber, I don't care
  • Relax-o-Vision: Invoked in his playthrough of the Amnesia mod House of Creep 3 - he gets so spooked by the sheer amount of Teleporting Naked Guys in the hallway, he has to quit the game and look up pictures of kittens. He refers to it as "Kitten Therapy" and sometimes does the same with puppies.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: From one of his QWOP videos:
    Haters gonna hate,
    I laugh cuz you skate,
    This is not my fate,
    Because I ate.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Most of the dogs that he and Marzia own qualify, the most recent one being Maya, or Puga as many fans have called it. Maya still qualifies after having lost an eye.
