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:
    • His bros are bad according to him. Those who tell him to stop wasting the lantern, at least.
    • He's getting really sick and tired of the Fan Dumb attacking anybody who criticizes him. Especially when it comes to horror games.
  • 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.)
  • 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:
    • Half of his Dead Rising 3 videos are either deleted or private, and there seems to be no explanation for what happened to them either.
    • Several of his Happy Wheels videos have been marked private, despite the funny montages featuring clips from some of them.
    • His Cat Lady videos all disappeared with no explanation. Part 9 of Alice: Madness Returns also disappeared, though that one is speculated to have been due to a bogus copyright flag.
  • One of Us:
  • Series Hiatus: Currently, he is putting Ni No Kuni and Kingdom Hearts on this.
  • Trolling Creator: He titled an 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.
  • 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 Fandom 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.
