- Big Name Fan: As far as fans of The Binding of Isaac go, to the point where he got an interview with McMillen himself.
- Creator Couple: Now that his girlfriend Kate (aka Pro Box Studio on Youtube) both make Lets Plays, they are this. In particular, Northernlion has guested on every episode of Kate's Hyperdimension Neptunia series so far.
- Executive Meddling: His let's play of Assassins Creed: Brotherhood had to be removed from youtube due to copyright claims from Ubisoft. It was moved to blip.tv, but appears to be canceled as he hasn't updated in a long time.
- He Also Did: In addition to his more well-known LPs of roguelikes and strategy games, he also has a series on Geo Guessr. It's very low-key compared to his other work, and he's openly referred to it as a "niche series".
- One of Us: He has referenced TV Tropes numerous times.
