His WTF-a-thon caused a similar situation, with viewers in the livestream flocking to the sites for the various games being advertised and inadvertently bringing them down. It quickly became something of a Running Gag throughout the livestream.
The effects of TB's Colbert Bump can be seen live in video (recorded during the WTF-a-thon) in TB's run of Realm of the Mad God: behold more than 30 out of the possible 85 players in a server congregating around TB as his personal army. As a fan remarked, the effect of a "WTF is..." increases a game's population by 4000%.
TB is causing a lot more attention to the game God Hand since he said that "if I find out one of you doesn't like this game, I'll personally come to your house and kill you."
TB also caused a lot of popularity for Kung-Fu Jesus's LP of God Hand as a result of his video, by way of linking it in the description.
He Lampshades this in his WTF is.. of DLC Quest, saying that he can weaponize it by tweeting about the dev's site & crashing it.
He has actually hit the "like" button on a few Retsupurae videos, which has lead to spikes in their popularity.
This has led to a bit of a Running Gag - if TB draws attention to a video, game, project, whatever, when his fans get there they will announce "The Cynical Fleet has arrived." He would go on to consider this a Discredited Meme.
And has happened yet again with One Finger Death Punch, with the devs outright stating in a reddit reply that his First Impressions video helped save it from being a financial disaster.
He presented his Arbitrary Awards 2014, in which one of the categories was "Most interesting Gaming Youtube channel that isn't mine". The winner, XboxAhoy had a significant boost in subscription numbers following the video.
TB has stated that he despised his Terraria series, seeing as it spawned forced memes and the viewership is highest when nothing was accomplished at all.
He very much dislikes the video he did about the Kickstarter for the game Maia, feeling it was bad journalism to demand that his viewers support a game made by an unproven developer, and feels he should never have made that video in the first place.
Mentions that he reads TV Tropes in his February 15th 2012 Mailbox video, and is aware of his and Jesse Cox's pages. He's given many a Shout-Out to various tropes over the years.
TB is a fan of several other things unrelated to video games, which he will occasionally talk about in great detail. For instance, he is a huge fan of Terry Pratchett (If the source of the name "Total Biscuit" wasn't enough of an indicator) and has openly admitted to being a Warhammer 40k fanboy (during a video of his where he squee'd all over a WH40K game, no less). He demonstrated his fanboyishness in a Warhammer 40k Roleplay wherein he (playing as a Mechanicus Acolyte) managed to out-nerd the GM.
Role-Ending Misdemeanor: He publicly ended his association with the Yogscast's "Big Three" (Lewis Brindley, Simon Lane and CEO Mark Turpin) after falling out over Yogdiscovery, Lewis falsely accusing TB of doing non-disclosed sponsored content and Simon calling him a "crying pissbabby" over a comic book of all things. He later clarified that he doesn't have a beef with everyone in the network, as shown by his interactions with Strippin and Sips, plus his picking Sjin for the Polaris Civil War crossover.
Streisand Effect: The publishers of Day One: Garry's Incident and Guise of the Wolf both garnered huge amounts of negative publicity when they tried to misuse Youtube's Copyright Notice feature to remove TB's WTF is... videos on the games (he panned both of them for being buggy messes that weren't fun to play).
Why the Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: In 2016, TB retired from social media because he felt it was negatively impacting his health. His Twitter has since been taken over by a staffer. Thankfully this was later averted as TB opened a brand-new official subreddit in June and has been pretty good at interacting with fans on there(and even promising to do AM As).
