Tropes

  • And a Diet Coke: Taco-Man claims to learn from playing Captain Novolin that everyone should try to eat healthy, and avoid sugary snacks.

    Cut to Simms.
    Simms: Megan is dead.
    Taco-Man: And?

  • Jerkass: Taco-Man
    • Derek the Brave can be this at times too, especially in the first two episodes of Taco-Man The Game Master.
  • Karma Houdini: Taco-Man in his Taco-Man Safety Tips gives kids HORRIBLE advice, sometimes which results in death. He never faces any repercussions for his actions.
  • Mood Whiplash: several parts of the Awesome Possum episode have Taco-Man breaking the mood with depressing scenes of real-life footage of polluted/scorched lands, wasted rainforests, and dirty oceans.
  • Mr. Exposition: Ben Burrito and Ashley share this role in the Night Trap parody, with Jessica becoming confused by Ashley's habit of clumsily delivering information the two of them already know.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Taco-Man The Game Master has Princess Polygon.
  • Overused Running Gag: A clip of an old guy from Mad Dog McCree saying, "Hoho, you missed that one. Try another!" every time Taco-Man makes a mistake in a video game.
    • And when he finally makes the target, the old man says "Nice shooting! Try another one!"
  • Rage Quit: How a few of the Taco-Man Plays A Video Game episodes have ended.
  • Shoddy Knock Off Product: One episode of Stupid Adventures of Taco-Man revolves around Taco-Man taking out a poorly drawn counterpart of his known as Toco-Man.
  • Shoo Out the New Guy: Zig-zagged in Part 2 of "I've Got a Woody". In order to accept Woody as a new member of his team, he fires Virtual Boy. However, Woody tuns out to be so much of an in-universe example of The Scrappy, that Taco-Man stars to miss Virtual Boy! He gets rid of Woody by sending him to the real world.
  • Shower Scene: Taco-Man treats the player of his Night Trap parody to one if he/she traps all the leechers. The scene features Taco-Man in his "Dana" disguise, to the disgust of Ben Burrito.

    Taco-Man: Uh, you know, there is a back door and a door in the living room area.
    Silence...
    Taco-Man: Be very, very quiet.
    Megan and Cindy: Ahhhhhhhhh!
    Megan and Cindy run up the stairs.
    Taco-Man: Oh, why can't I use the stair trap on the girls?
    • The other time is this:
    Taco-Man: Again, too bad I can't use the stair trap...
  • Title Theme Tune: Taco-Man Plays A Video Game has its own theme song, which eventually became an end credits song instead.

    Kelly: Ahhh!
    Taco-Man: Well, what did you expect running UPSTAIRS?
  • What the Hell, Player?: Ben Burrito scolds players of the Night Trap parody if they let Taco-Man or any of the girls die. Subverted if the player lets Taco-Man survive long enough to get killed by Sarah, as Ben Burrito ponders taking over Taco-Man's show.

  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Taco-Man as Dana in his Night Trap parody, and Taco-Croft in his Tomb Raider review.
