His video on Die Hard: The Licensed Game for the NES, the nerd attempts to properly beat the game. The game proves to be so frustrating that everything around him explodes while the Die Hard music plays and he is constantly jumping and rolling away from the blasts, as well as sweating and bleeding. Eventually, sick of the game, he rips the game out of the NES, yells "Yippie-Ki-Yay, motherfucker!!" and throws it behind him and jumps Die Hard style from the massive explosion it causes.
That cat, aka Deathkitty, returns in the Atari Jaguar review to fight off the spinning Jaguar cube that comes out of the screen.
And the review of Swordquest. He turns a video game contest into an epic adventure which has not been seen since King Arthur.
Most of Arby 'n' the Chief takes place in Xbox Live. While relatively mundane at first, later seasons introduce more complex plots, such as a hacker clan trying to ban everyone on the network, and it surprisingly has a lot of suspense.
Strong Badman: Because, mere mortal... this apartment... IS RENT CONTROLLED! ...and water's included." Strong Bad: Is that why all your faucets are running? Strong Badman: MU-HU-HU-HA-HA! Those dimwits down at the public works won't know what hit them! Strong Bad: So that's your evil plan? To waste water? Strong Badman: And not pay for it!
In the middle of The Final Brawl, with epic battle going on around them, the Nerd dramatically bellowing and raising his fist... before placing a Geek Fight card on a table. The Critic responds in kind, and they argue about the power level...
Then there's the end of the Moulin Rouge! review, in which the Critic and the Chick get an epic musical number about a) how the Critic dislikes his job, and b) what the Chick is having for dinner. It reaches its peak when they sing dramatically about the Critic accidentally rhyming a line he hadn't intended to.
His epic salute to the Denny's Red, White, and Blue pancakes.
"First: You need to put... your... gloves on. No matter how long it takes, NO MATTER THE DIFFICULTY, you must GET IT ON!"
Lampshaded on The Spoony Experiment during his Phantasmagoria 2 review. During one scene when ominous music is playing, he sings (with the music) "Cubicle isn't scary!" Also during very boring scenes the Spoony One will shout "PHANTASMAGORIA! PUZZLE OF THE FLESH!" in a dramatic voice, a joke which returned in his reviews of Ripper and The Ring: Terror's Realm.
Goku: "Gohan, follow Krillin. Get home to your mother."
Gohan: "Right, daddy. Is there anything you want me to tell her?"
Goku: "Yes, Gohan. Tell her..."
* Zoom in to Goku. Hardcore rock guitar.*
Goku: "...to put dinner on!"
* More zoom. Guitar continues.*
Goku: "..because I'm hungry!"
* Extreme close-up. Guitar continues and then dies out.*
Rhett & Link love this trope. Their songs include "Phatdippin'," "Epic Rap Battle," "In The '80s," and "The Shamwow Song," and a short video series called The Surrogate Sharers, in which they present embarrassing confessions on behalf of others.
Arguably, their opus in this is "How to Kill A Moustache" in which they come up with no less than 15 nicknames for a moustache and finish the act of shaving by putting the clippings on a raft, setting it ablaze, and sending it down a river.
Retro Game Master, a translation of a Japanese TV show, can get into this pretty often. It's about a guy trying to complete classic NES-era games in single playthroughs. The commentary translation sounds very literal, which in English tends to result in some... interesting emphasis. MIGHTY BOMB JACK, anyone?
Is the subject of the video a farming simulator? How could this possibly not end in epic gardening... TO SHOW THEM ALL!
Linkara has stated multiple times that a "Collector's Issue" is NOT so unless it contains a Mr. T trading card. And then Mr.T and the T-Force #2 comes with such a card. He holds it aloft as it begins to glow like a sun and angels sing its praise. AND IT IS GLORIOUS.
Polnareff gives Enya Geil a back massage in a Star Platinum-like manner during the first episode of the Justice arc in Vaguely Recalling JoJo. He even comes up with a repeated yell: "Momi Momi Momi Momi Momi!" The back massage restores Enya's youth
From NextG Poop, we have the evil villain The Wal.
The Wal: Hello. I am The Wal. I have come to return to power.
NextG: You will NOT return to power, you stupid jerk!
In Plague and Treachery on the Oregon Trail, when the decision came over what to do once they reached Snake River, Chewbot said he'd count anyone who posted their vote in the form of a haiku as two votes.
Think about it. What's more ridiculous than dozens of internet strangers voting on the river-crossing status of a fictional family based on an educational game that was created 30 years ago? Haiku about it.
Barats and Bereta are quite fond of this trope and have turned ordinary things like children's games, the Neighborhood Watch Committee, April Fools' Day, and taking shots into unbelievably awesome things using dramatic music, dramatic lighting, and Narm.
"Shrimp on a Treadmill" is interesting enough as a study of how diseases and pollution affect the endurance of ocean creatures. Then YouTube got hold of it and started making music videos...
ThisLiveJournal comment: "DO YOU ALL HEAR ME?! THE HOUR OF JUSTICE IS COMING FOR ALL BITCHES, THE HOUR OF TRUTH!!!" in response to someone's fanfic getting a negative review.
Celebrity gossip blog Just Jared writes breathless, awestruck stories about celebrities doing mundane things. Activities such as grocery shopping, taking their kids to school, doctor's visits and going to Subway for lunch are presented as being so much more amazing than normal because reality show contestants and bottom tier celebrities are doing them.
ThisYouTube video has a political commentator going to a protest gathering outside a town hall and he tried to play up the (mostly harmless) people there as a dangerous angry mob.
Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf - Epic Version. The Very True, Incredibly Epic and Completely Heroic story of how Lieutenant G.W. Bush won the first gulf war. "Take That, Iraqistan!". Megadrive game updated with a Big Damn Score by some of Hollywood's finest.
Vegan Black Metal Chef combines metal music, studded leather, face makeup, Satanic imagery, and intricate sacrificial knives to make... a vegan cooking show.
Every time Shesh Besh (a.k.a. Backgammon) is played it is precisely this awesome.
These twovideos make a MLG montage out of a train simulator.
The Ballad of GI Joe is mostly a rather downbeat song about G.I. Joe and Cobra having a slow night when they're not busy fighting each other until it gets to Destro and the Baroness PRACTICING THE CLARINET! (PRACTICING THE CLARINET!)
