Trivia / PewDiePie

  • Approval of God: Hat Films did a parody video of his opening pack video, itself a parody. He tweeted to say he found it funny.
  • Artist Disillusionment:
  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: He's always making at least two playthroughs at a time.
  • Big Name Fan: Notch once said that he watches his videos, and when Pewdie asked if he was a Bro, he answered "Sure why not :D"
  • Colbert Bump / Newbie Boom: This happens to many of the independent games he plays, to the point that some developers have sent him beta builds of their games just to drum up excitement among the fans.
    • If it wasn't for him, no one would know who Nero's Day at Disneyland is. (Their song "Child Protective Services Theme" is his most famous Ending Theme, and their song "No Money Down Low Monthly Payments" was used as the theme song for an intro Pewdie would use for his horror game videos.)
  • Creator Backlash: Felix has denounced his previous Nazi jokes and has declared his intent to distance himself from that kind of humor, both out of recognizing how unfunny they were and because they lumped him with groups of people he doesn't wish to be associated with.
  • The Merch: See here.
  • Milestone Celebration: He's made a couple videos for hitting a certain amount of subscribers, or at least thanked his bros directly.
  • Missing Episode:
  • Old Shame:
    • Felix has stated he's not so much happy with his older videos from when he was just starting to become famous, saying he finds them too cringe inducing.
      • Money, Dear Boy: He's even joked the only reason he still keeps his older videos up on YouTube is because he "still gets ad revenue" from them...
      • Magnum Opus Dissonance: ...though in reality he doesn't take the videos down because he knows some people besides himself still like to watch his old content.
    • His comment to the Retsupurae gets this, big time.
  • One of Us:
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Felix wound up losing much of his support from YouTube and having Disney-owned Maker Studios sever ties with him after a controversial video that featured him paying two men to hold up a sign reading "Death to all Jews" as a joke. Other videos had contained controversial "jokes" like this, but the way this particular video blew up on social media was the breaking point that lead to YouTube, Disney, and parts of the fanbase distancing themselves from Felix.
    • Unfortunately this also caused one for YouTube in general, as some Old Media journalists essentially went up to a bunch of YouTube's advertisers and said "Hey, did you know your ads are playing on [X allegedly racist video]?" causing what's become known as the "adpoicalypse" among creators.
  • Series Hiatus: Currently, he is putting Ni No Kuni and Kingdom Hearts on this.
  • Trolling Creator:
    • He titled a news video informing viewers that he would be away on a business trip for a few days "Bye Bye Forever" and than opened it with him announcing his retirement before doing a 180 just to mess with the fans.
    • Then there's the "delete his channel at 50 million subscribers". He did delete his channel, but it was the Jacksepticeye2 channel that he deleted.
  • What Could Have Been: If Pewdie hadn't forgotten his Alice: Madness Returns save file when he moved, the series would probably have continued.
  • Why Bros Can't Have Nice Things:
    • He eventually turned off rated comments because he was sick and tired of spam on the channel, though at first he left general comments on. (He later turned them off because he was annoyed with the Youtube overhaul, not that he was alone in doing that).
    • He also removed comments because of some trolls accusing him of beating his girlfriend. He was understandably unamused.
    • PewDiePie is aware of the brony community when he played the Amnesia: The Dark Descent custom story The Small Horse and the Luna Games. He had his screen name long before the name Pinkie Pie became very well-known and therefore it is not derived from her name.
