- Colbert Bump: When Notch retweeted Dan's anniversary update, the site was crushed under the strain of Notch's followers. For weeks.
- The Red Stapler
- Fan Community Nickname: "Procrastinators".
- One of Us: In addition to the whole video games shebang, Dan is a fan of Professional Wrestling, Doctor Who and Sherlock. He even knows of this very wiki.
- The Wiki Rule: There is one here.
- Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: Ever since the new YouTube comment section was introduced, Dan got a lot of spam links on his videos. As such, he took to disabling comments on his newer videos entirely, only allowing comments via sub-Reddits.
- Later averted when he opened up the YouTube comment section again on all his videos, including ones that were uploaded during the time he kept them closed.
