: TEAM DEATH MATCH.
Code MENT has several, including the numerous in-video references to Edward James Olmos and the way that every LoadingReadyRun X Ways to Y video ends in The Sam Raimi. Ex: Ways to Hide a Body, Ways to Get in Shape, and Ways to Get Yourself Killed in a Horror Movie.
Their series on The Escapist also has a few, notably "Eyebrows and the Thugs", supposedly a contemporary jazz band, and "that was the Xth time I died." X is 5 at time of editing.
"Hi folks, Russell here," whenever a crow appears, which is more often than you would think.
There are several running gags in the line of work. Homestar Runner All are placed into subcategories seen here.
The machinima series .
Red vs. Blue When Red Army first acquires their jeep, its radio is blasting loud polka music without any way to shut it off. Throughout the series, polka music gradually rising in volume becomes an indication that Red Army is about to appear.
It's Tejuano music, referencing Lopez being the mechanic.
Also, anytime the tank fires a shot, any character nearby will shout "SON OF A BITCH!"
Sister's odd stories ending with somebody else responding by saying "Yeah! Wait, what?"
Sarge attempting to get Grif killed for the team.
Church's inability to hit anything with a sniper rifle.
He can't even shoot down a guy point blank.
Tucker's inability to actually obtain a sniper rifle.
"I killed me! I'm the teamkilling fucktard!"
"That doesn't seem physically possible!"
"Shotgun!" "Shotgu- Fuck!"
In Rick's , creepers are ALWAYS drawn Minecraft Tales flopping back and forth with over-the-top angry faces. Also, the distorted faces people make, the way Nancy goes LO-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA, that thing with the animal floating away aand blowing up, wow, I've lost count!
Hal isn't paid to work for Bowser.
Steve almost always says "HI GUYS!" when he first appears in an episode.
The Inaudible Thwomp's subtitles will usually change into "???"
Paul Hammerbro throws hammers when angered.
Kamek constantly calls Jeff and Hal (mostly Hal) gay.
In Sir Schmoopy of Awesometon repeatedly casts the spell Flare.
Unforgotten Realms elevates The Nekci Menij Show Shameless Self-Promotion to an artform as a Running Gag. There's also Kety Perr, who has 90% of her dialogue revolve around how she wants everyone to see her film, Pert of Me.
Decline Of Video Gaming The short "Metallica Millionaire": every time the Napster Bad ditty plays, Regis Philbin dances to the tune.
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? uses "14 Hours Later..." for scene transitions, even where it makes no sense. Also, every time Ultra Fast Pony Fantastic Racism comes up in the series, the subtitles assure us "I swear I'm not racist." Every time Mayor Mare gives a speech, a mysterious voice calls from the crowd to heckle her.
In , there is Spriggs: a Halo 3 Machinima Willy's eternally unsuccessful quest to kill Spriggs.
