Web Video: Caddicarus

"Greetings and salutations, my beautiful people!"

James "Caddicarus" Caddick is a British YouTube personality who hosts a Video Review Show, which specializes in video games from the Playstation One era of gaming. His show can found on Youtube and on the website Hidden Block. The channel offers five different shows. Caddicarus (the main reviews), Top 10 Lists (Self Explanatory), Current Quickies (rapid-fire modern game reviews), Caddy's Retrospectives (Caddy's opinions on the first three games of a franchise) and Tinker Time (whatever Caddy feels like reviewing at the time). In 2013, he opened a second channel called Caddy's Conundrums where he uploads videos that wouldn't fit on his main channel.

    Caddicarus (Main Channel) 

Caddicarus

Caddicarus is Caddy's main (and self-titled) show, where he reviews a game (usually a retro game, specifically for the PS1) every episode in his own comic style. His first and longest running show to date, Caddicarus is full of Running Gags, Caption Humor, and oh so many Funny Moments.
Caddy: Greetings and salutations, my beautiful people, and welcome to the Caddicarus show, where I always have to do the dirty deed of deciding whether or not a game deserves to be slaughtered or salvaged!

Top 10 Lists

Caddy's second show, his Top 10 Lists. They are... Well... Top 10 Lists. However, instead of just reusing the cliched format, Caddy decided to make his Top 10 Lists a bit more interesting by having some more unique topics, so instead of Top 10 Best Games or Top 10 Saddest Games, we have Top 10 Merchants!, and Top 10 People in Games that Probably Stink Like Sh*t!
Caddy: Top 10 Lists, which, if you're stupid... They're Top 10 Lists.

  • Top 10 Merchants in Video Gaming!

Today's Special

Today's Special was originally planned to be a show that would review a new release in great detail, but ended up being cancelled after one episode. What's more, that one episode was criticised by him in a later video (Top 10 Games That I Like... But No-One Else Does!), with him calling it 'horribly outdated'.
Caddy: Bonjour, everybody and welcome to Today's Special! Yohohohohohohohoho!

Current Quickies

Current Quickies is a series of rapid-fire fast-talking reviews. It has gone through many changes since it's first episode, and was originally called by Caddy himself an "Indie Game Spotlight", but now reviews Triple A titles as often (if not more often) than indie games. While the show keeps its insanely rapid pace during the review segments, it has lost the near constant bleeped out swearing that featured in the first episode. In addition, the "macho" voice used in the first episode is only used in the intros and outros of the videos now, with the actual review sections in Caddy's normal voice.
Caddy: 'Ello, my duckies! CYOAR!

Caddy's Retrospectives

Caddy's Retrospectives is a series where Caddy reviews the first three instalments in any video game franchise he feels he wants to cover. Despite only having four entries into the series (so far), each entry contains three videos, one for each game he covers. Because these series involve non-stop videos back-to-back for three weeks, they tend to be more infrequent than Caddy's other shows. However, they are beloved by his fans, and have started many Running Gags of their own.

Tinker Time

Tinker Time is the show in which Caddy reviews games in a fashion that wouldn't fit with his main show. They aren't so much comedy videos as they are more traditionally-styled reviews. They show Caddy sitting in front of the camera and giving his opinion with a screen showing gameplay footage. He then ranks them on a ranking system that goes from "Flammable" to "Unbelievable". The only exception is the infamous (amongst fans) review of The Stanley Parable, in which he gives the rating a minute into the video, and the rest of the video is a loop of half of the opening cutscene, again and again and again. He also called his review of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes one of the most difficult reviews he has ever had to make though.
Caddy: Hello everybody, and this week I've been having a little bit of a tinker around with... [Insert game name here]. So can I please get an intro... Now!

Caddy has also confirmed that he will cover the Spyro games at some point in time, in some form or another (most likely through a Caddy's Retrospectives series).

    Caddy's Conundrums (Secondary Channel) 

Random Conundrums

Random Conundrums is a collection of all the videos released on Caddy's second channel that don't really belong anywhere else. It is possible Caddy originally meant to make it a more promenent series, considering the first video he released on the channel was one. However, only two other videos have been added to the list since. The first video was a vlog-type video in which Caddy gave a tour of his room, but the two other videos were closer to short sketches.

  • A Tour Of The Room...
  • Day 3: Help
  • CADDY BOUGHT ME CADDY'S PS4

Regarding...

Regarding... is the series that launched alongside Caddy's second channel. The videos basically revolve around Caddy ranting about whatever topic he feels like talking about. The topic doesn't have to relate to video games, but it often does.

  • Regarding... David Hayter and Metal Gear Solid V
  • Regarding... The Hate For ET On Atari
  • Regarding... My Comments on Google+ Comments
  • Regarding... The Length of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
  • Regarding... Punching the Pa-Pa-Pa-Paparazzi
  • Regarding... Daytime TV Videogame Discussion Panels
  • Regarding... The Cack on Knack
  • Regarding... The Price of New 'n' Tasty
  • Regarding... The Battle of the Spidermen

[NOSTALGIACAD]

[NOSTALGIACAD] was the second series of Caddy's second channel. The videos released in the series are the videos that Caddy uploaded to his main channel before his "Rascal Racers" review, which have since been deleted, and then re-uploaded here. The series ended with Caddy's final Pre-"Rascal Racers" video, How to Pull Birds, which includes the origin of the "CYOAR!" Running Gag. Within the series was what was probably his most loved Pre-"Rascal Racers" videos (judging by its appearance in the 10,000 Subscribers video), Randasong, a series of songs created by him revolving around a genre and a topic suggested by viewers.

  • My Old Intro
  • He's The Dog
  • Monster Energy Commercial
  • The Cleaning
  • Arniestep
  • Randasong #01 - Country/Orange Squash
  • Pitch Shift Symphony - The Legend of Zelda Theme
  • I'm A Snake (REMIX)
  • Randasong #02 - Nursery Rhyme/Ostrich
  • A Christmas with Caddy

Drive-Thru Reviews

Caddy Cussbottom

  • Tins

Caddicarus provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: "Legendary, Limitless, Luscious Lorne Lanning" in his Oddworld retrospective.
  • A God Am I: Ian in "The Poo Race".
    Ian: I am GOD!
  • Alien Geometries: He's quick to call bullshit on a 20th Century logo that's somehow also a Fox Interactive logo on the other side.
    Caddy: Everything I know about space and matter is being questioned right now, do you get this? I hope you do, because I sure don't, let me tell you.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: The Parrot from the Fade To Black review does this to Caddy in Bratz: The Splatty Ratz That Are Gnatz Covered in Shatz.
  • Arch-Enemy: Rascal Racers.
    Caddy: Damn you, Rascal Racers!
    • Later replaced by Coronation Street: The Mystery of the Missing Hotpot Recipe
    • After that was Phoenix Games, as a result of Dalmatians 3, which he says is worse than Coronation Street. Hilarious in Hindsight due to it being revealed that Bratz: The Splatty Ratz That Are Gnatz Covered in Shatz was actually the one meant to be the true worst game ever made, but he found out about Dalmatians 3, and topped Bratz as the worst game ever made before he could make a video on it.
    • A human arch-enemy to Caddy is Ian, aka BrutalMoose in "The Poo Race".
  • Asbestos-Free Cereal: When he displays the site where you can download The Zoo Race and the "virus-free" awards proudly displayed on the page, he points out that the fact that your game is free of viruses shouldn't be a selling point.
  • Asshole Victim: Olly in Totally Fanny. Yeah, he was pretty much asking to be shot at that point.
    Olly: Who's a little girly-girl? Caddy's a little girly-girl!
  • Ate His Gun: At the start of 3, 2, 1, Derp!, when faced with the titular game he tries this.
    • He also does this at the end of his Top 10 Games That I Don't Like But Everyone Else Does list, since he decides he's probably going to get crucified for his picks anyway.
    Caddy: I might as well just fucking get it over with- (Smash Cut to closing jingle)
  • Big "Shut Up!": Caddy delivers one to Brainy when he gets annoyed with how Brainy narrates everything you do in the menus in 3, 2, 1, Smurf.
  • Berserk Button: He seems to go through phases of what presses it and how. At first, it was Rascal Racers, which caused him to have a fit every time it was brought up. Then it was Coronation Street: The Mystery of the Missing Hotpot Recipe, which causes mild anger and resentment.
    • The idea of reviewing the Coronation Street game had Caddy sitting in his garden ranting about the game, while smearing his face with whipped cream.
    • When he showed a scene from Casper: A Spirited Beginning because it had an advert for Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, it made him at least really annoyed.
    • Dalmatians 3 takes it Up to Eleven with him saying it's not even on the same level of badness as any of the previous games he's slaughtered, including the previously mentioned Rascal Racers and Coronation Street.
    • Any game with broken controls or poor draw distance.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Caddy says his childhood experiences with Crash Bandicoot were mainly "crying, screaming, kicking... shoving things up me bum..."
  • Broke the Rating Scale: From 3, 2, 1, Derp!:
    Caddy: And [3, 2, 1, Smurf!] was also one of the only games in the world that Official UK Playstation Magazine gave a "FUCK OFF AND DIE" out of ten.note 
  • Caption Humor
  • Carpet of Virility
    [On Mr. Domino]"But now that I'm a fully grown (and rather hairy) adult, I think it's about time I retried this forgotten gem for old time's sake, and give it a second chance."
  • Catch Phrase
    • At the start of every review: "Greetings and salutations, my beautiful people!"
      • And at the end: "If it's your birthday while watching this video, then happy fricking birthday to you. And please remember to stay beautiful!"
    • "Jesus Christ on a bicycle!"
    • "Cyoar!" in Current Quickies.
    • During any "Caddy's Retrospective" at the end of any video he usually asks "Does (insert game here) hold up today?" while spinning the game's box into his hands displaying the front cover.
    • In the same series, "Fun Fact: Did ya know?", said in a Scouse accent.
    • At the start of every Tinker Time: "I've been having a tinker with (insert game here)...so can I PLEASE get an intro, NOW!"
  • Caustic Critic: Averted. He'll quite readily point out a game's good points, refuses to attack a game just for a cheap laugh if he doesn't already know it's bad, and even reviews games he knows he likes. Gets a Lampshade Hanging in his Jungle Book review where he "argues" with his (absent) viewers about being able to review things he finds fun sometimes.
  • Censored for Comedy: In 3, 2, 1, Derp!, he has fun randomly bleeping out all the Smurfing to make the sentences sound dirty.
  • Chekhov's Gag: In the first part of the Max Payne review, Caddy tells the audience to remember that the developers are Finnish.
    Caddy: Also they were Finnish! Why was that important? Heh heh, you'll see later!
    Caddy: But as far as the game looks as a whole, Remedy did have a lovely and extremely detailed Finnish to it. Haha, there was the important bit!
  • Cliff Hanger: A few times.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: You have NO IDEA!
  • Cluster F-Bomb/Cluster Bleep Bomb: The first episode of Current Quickies.
  • Country Matters: Once knowing he's British, it becomes quite clear what he means when he calls Angelica "a complete fanny of a person." But while the majority of his curse usage including the f-word goes uncensored, this particular swear is almost always bleeped out, and the only time he did say "cunt" uncensored was in "Santa Claus Saves The Earth" and "Regarding... Punching The Pa-Pa-Pa-Paparazzi"
  • Curse Cut Short: The repeated remarks in "Top 10 Things in Games That Scared Me as a Kid" about how something scared the ShMECKLES out of Caddy.
  • Cut Short: Used frequently in his reviews, usually to transition from a moment of eccentric talking or ranting to talking more formally about the game he's discussing.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: The Zoo Race does this to itself, with Caddy pointing out the games "awards" page that only says that the game isn't malware.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: His description of The Great Escape's gameplay.
    Caddy: It's mostly just talking, waiting, fetching, waiting and repeating and waiting
  • Don't Explain the Joke: In Everything Can Stop Mr. Domino:
    Caddy: So, Mr. Domino, let's see what effect you leave on me. (beat) Domino effect. (beat) It's a domino—(Smash Cut)
  • Drives Like Crazy: Caddy drives by spinning his car. And not in the way you'd expect.
  • Drop-In Character: Sometimes. Most often its his sister, Rosie.
  • Drunk on Milk: In "Rascal", Caddy gets drunk on a beverage labelled "Adult Juice" in comic sans.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first two episodes were lighter on the Sensory Abuse, and didn't have the "slaughter or salvage" decisions.
  • Even Better Sequel:invoked He feels that the third Sly Cooper game is the best, because it had better character interactions and tighter gameplay and writing than its predecessors.
  • Evil Brit: It seems he'll be the villain in the new collaborative YouTube series Game Squad (with PeanutButterGamer, Brutalmoose, ProJared, and Space Hamster).
    Caddy: Game Squad? More like... lame squad! [Evil Laugh]
  • Excited Show Title!: Every episode of 'Top 10 Lists' is punctuated with an exclamation mark.
  • Fair for Its Day:invoked Caddy firmly believes that games released today should be judged by today's standards. He picks Superfrog HD and Putty Squad apart, both of them remakes of Amiga-era games, stating repeatedly that while they may have been considered good back then, gaming standards have evolved since then and the remakes don't deserve to sail through on nostalgia alone.
  • Filler: In the video for the review of The Stanley Parable, Caddy decided to give the game a score, without a proper review, so he wouldn't spoil it. The video's length is about 10 minutes with the review itself being only a minute, where as the rest of the video is a constant loop of a part of the games intro, because he didn't want to spoil anything. This caused the video to be the most disliked video of Caddy's.
  • Follow The Bouncing Caddy Head: One of these comes up in the South Park review when he brings up the game's multitude of "~Veeeeery grumpy turkeys!~"
  • Freak Out: Suffers one in part 3 of his Max Payne Retrospective, where he's admiring Max's strength of character in shaving off all the hair on his head to signify a change in his life. Cut to Caddy's Traumatic Haircut within the same sentence.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: An upside-down paragraph of text appears in a joke in his Putty Squad video, in a book titled, "Mid-80s UK Game Developing Company Naming Theory", which reads:
    If you're on a desktop computer or watching this on a tv, you must look fucking ridiculous right now. And what was this all for? Nothing. Why would there be? I'm just about to explain what this silly theory is in my next spoken sentence, so why on Earth would I display it here as well? You've been had. And now I have your head upside down. Looking stupid. Yep. Sorry. There's NOTHING of any relevance here. You can unpause the vide, now. Or you can take a break - your head must be very tired. Love youuuuuuuuuuuuu.
  • Game-Breaking Bug: He finds a literal one with Dalmatians 3; For some reason, the game made the Playstation 2's disk drive spin much faster than it usually does. Because of this, the disc got so hot that after he was done with the review, the PS2 couldn't play it again.
  • Gilligan Cut: In "The Poo Race", when Ian claims to have stolen all of Caddy's possessions.
    Caddy: Oh, now that's just stupid. How could he have possibly
    * cut to Caddy's old room, completely ransacked*
    Caddy: Well, shit.
  • Ha Ha Ha No: In The Simpsons Skateboarding, he laments the lack of any good music, and decides he could solve it by adding his own. Cue a Norwegian comedic song about recycling. His reaction is this trope.
  • Hollywood Hacking: Caddy hacking into Brutalmoose's computer is shown as him typing random gibberish into a Windows command prompt.
  • Hong Kong Dub: Parodied in his video for Bratz: Rock Angels.
  • Intentional Engrish for Funny: He works a subtle one into his Vib-Ribbon review. Upon stating that the game's music was made by the Japanese group Laugh and Peace, he briefly shows an obvious machine translation of their article on the Japanese-language Wikipedia, which has such gems as "In this item, Music producer I am describes the unit."
  • Important Haircut/Traumatic Haircut: In the Max Payne 3 video.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: In "Rascal", Caddy decides to take swigs of adult juice to cope with the atrocity that is Rascal, even though he generally never drinks.
  • Insult to Rocks: He believes that trying to defend Dalmations 3 by saying it's a kids game is more of an insult to said kids.
  • It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: In his "Top Ten Moments I Couldn't Take Seriously" video, he takes annoyance at hearing a guy in Thief: Deadly Shadows with a very fake British accent pronounce "Passage" as "PAR-sage" (Its actually more like "Pah-sage".)
    Caddy: Ah well, don't be ARngry. ARllow me to ARmply walk ARway and eat this ARttrARctive ARpple.
  • Jump Scare: One of these occurs when Caddy reacts to Broken Sword II's box art.
    • Caddy himself tries to do this on Jordan Underneath during their review of Resident Evil 0. It doesn't work.
  • Karmic Death: After so many years torturing his guest stars, Caddy himself was killed by one in Resident Evil BILLY.
  • Loads and Loads of Loading: The video of Dalmatians 3 not only pointed out the long loading times, but also the incredibly loud whirring that the PS2 makes while it loads. Both Caddy and Rosie thought the poor system would end up catching fire.
  • Makes Just as Much Sense in Context: Caddy says this about his compilation of quotes from Dalmations 3 near the end of the video:
    Caddy: Yep, I know - They'll be out of context. But even when they're in context, they make equal fucking sense.
    • All of LSD: Dream Emulator. It gets to the point where he becomes openly frustrated about how the game makes absolutely no sense, and he just gives up.
  • Mondegreen:
    • In Dalmatians 3, he mishears a line of dialogue as "swallow my bollocks".
    • He has fun misinterpreting the Engrish lyrics to the songs in Vib-Ribbon, leading to things like "Sunny day, I wank my Wii / I wake up ass cheeks"
  • Moral Dissonance: Caddy includes a lot of gun violence gags in his videos. This falls into Refuge in Audacity for himself and UK viewers, where gun control is much tighter and there's nowhere near the gun culture there is in the US, though it might make stateside viewers uncomfortable.
  • Mood Whiplash: Occasionally:
    • The ending to Fabuloso Sword II has Caddy cause Scarfulhu's head to explode, followed by Caddy laughing maniacally as he pictures the destruction he could cause. Immediately after is the calm, normal "stay beautiful" ending. Lampshaded when Caddy glances around the room right as the video ends.
    • In Rascal Racers...
    Caddy: I mean, graphically I guess it looks alright- pffffffft...what is THAT!? I picked the raccoon...not the boat with the smiley face drawn on it!
  • Most Annoying Sound: In-universe. Caddy's bound to find some incredibly irritating sounds in games that he doesn't like, and it's usually one of the first things that he'll riff on if it's there.
  • Motor Mouth: Usually during his "Current Quickies" segments, for obvious reasons.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in his Top 10 Games of 2014 video. Normally, his top 10 lists are part of his Caddicarus show, with a very informative focus and normal talk speed. This particular video is done in his Current Quickies format, so does an entire top 10 list in his rapid talk style.
  • Narm:invoked Discussed In-Universe in his "Top Ten Moments In Gaming I Couldn't Take Seriously" video.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: In "Lego Lego Racers Lego", his character is "Lego Spaceman Super Future High Tech Lego Ancient Kung Fu Master Super Sonic Lego Ultra Beta V.01 Lego Pai Mei from Kill Bill Vol. 2."
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Has this problem in the "Klonoa: I Can't Pronounce This Game" review, struggling with "Klonoa" and "Huepow".
    "Is it Klonoa? Klone-ah? Klon-ow? Klon-oooooooooaaaaaaah?"
    • During the review, he cycles between each pronunciation of "Klonoa".
    • Similarly, in the Vib-Ribbon review, he repeatedly trips over "NanaOn-Sha".
  • Non-Indicative Title: No One Can Stop Mr. Domino. Caddy plays it and plays as the eponymous Mr. Domino believing that the game will be piss easy because of the title claiming no one can stop him.
    "And..uhh..hmm...I think I'll go with Mr. Domino, purely because, well, the box says that "No One Can Stop Mr. Domino," so if I pick him I'll be unstoppable and he should make everything really fucking easy THE GAME LIED TO ME. Holy shit, I'm serious! No One Can Stop Mr. Domino? More like EVERYTHING Can Stop Mr. Domino! This game is a barrel of lies!"
  • Non Sequitur: He's quite good at them.
  • Noodle Incident: In The Simpsons: Tony Hoax Skateboarding, Caddy tries to pick up his PS2, and fails, noting that he "glued it to the Xbox."
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: Caddy has to put one on a collection of clips from Dalmatians 3 that have no sound. "I didn't make this up. Seriously."
  • One-Episode Wonder: Today's Special, meant to be an in-depth review feature of a current game. He later stated that being so critical the first time through ruined his enjoyment of the game, and the time-pressured experience resulted in a rating he later disagreed with, so he abandoned the idea.
  • Overly Long Gag:
    • According to "Fabuloso Sword 2", Scarfuhlu has a really long phone number.
    • Virtually the entirety of his Stanley Parable Tinker Time video.
  • Overly Long Name: In "Rascal", Caddy quotes his name as "James Montgomery Winston Henry Charles Elizabeth Terrance Margaret Caddick".
  • Quip to Black: From the Rascal Racers review: "No multiplayer mode. Not even on the arcade mode?! What kind of racing game am I playing?! I'll tell you what kind…" (puts on sunglasses) "A bad one." YEEEEEEAAAAAHHHH!!!
  • Rapid-Fire Comedy: There's barely a time where he goes one minute without sticking some sort of joke in.
  • A Rare Sentence: "Two anthropomorphic dominoes" in No One Can Stop Mr. Domino.
  • Recycled IN SPACE!: His collaborative review with The Completionist on Jaws Unleashed plays with a Running Gag over comparing the game to past titles, like Man Hunt and Pac-Man, "BUT WITH SHARKS!" (all while a guitar riff plays satirize how cool this is supposed to be).
    • Gets a Call Back in his review of Bratz: Rock Angelz:
    Caddy: So it's just like GTA. BUT WITH TWATZ!
  • Repetitive Audio Glitch: Played with in Chicken Run:
    Caddy: Ah yes, haven't seen this problem in a while. Yeah, these kind of things tend to happen when your PS1 disc has a scratchscratchscratchscratchscratchscratchscratch—
    (dots appear in the middle of the screen as if the video is buffering)
    Caddy: I got you, didn't I?
  • Rule of Cute: Part of the reason he likes Klonoa and Vib-Ribbon so much.
  • Rule of Funny: The show frequently runs on this.
  • Running Gag: Certain visual and audio cues used to emphasize his points come up repeatedly.
    • The strange way he barks "What?!" at anything.
    • Whenever Caddy 'slaughters' a game by shooting it, blood somehow spurts from the off-screen jewel case.
    • "The Top Whatever Reasons This Intro Makes No Fucking Sense Whatsoever".
    • In cross-over reviews on his channel, his intro plays as normal, then suddenly pauses with the other reviewer's logo popping up from the bottom as Caddy whispers "And, uh, [insert name here]."
    • Also, the fact that he shoots almost anyone that comes onto his show.
    • TWOOOOOO POINT FIVE DEEEEEEEE! Originally a Running Gag from the Klonoa review, it leaked into two more Top Tens, where it got Running Gagged (presumably).
    • Sometimes, the reviews themselves get their own running gags...
    • During the Jaws Unleashed review, he makes a habit of comparing the various gameplay mechanics to other games..."BUT WITH SHAAAHKS!"
    • The Crash Bash review has the repeated joke of adding a suffix to both words of the title (Crash'm Bash'm, Crashy Bashy, and Crashley Bashley).
    • In The Simpsons Skateboarding, as a way of poking fun of the many shoddy attempts to appeal to the "hip" audience, he shows a picture of the cover with Will Smith's face plastered onto the logo playing the theme song of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, with Caddy saying "Make it more hip."
    • A drawing of Jesus with a huge smile being shown whenever Caddy says "Jesus".
    • During his Retrospective videos, anytime he tells us a "Fun Fact," he does so in a faux-Scouse accent, usually accompanied by an image of Crash Bandicoot and the Vib-Ribbon tutorial music.
    • Caddy has a habit of starting his Retrospectives by rising up from the bottom of the screen and doing something completely random such as waving while Abe's "Hello." voice from Abe's Oddysee plays, having a coughing fit, bellowing "FIGHT!", growling "My god, its Metal Gear!" shouting "Brash Candicoot" and holding up the wrong game.
    • During his review of Evil Dead: Hail to the King on the PS One: "(points out a game mechanic full on taken from the Resident Evil games)...almost like Resident Evil."
    • Teasing a Spyro the Dragon Retrospective.
    • "Jade... I think?" in the Bratz: Rock Angelz review.
    • "THIS IS PS4!" in the Putty Squad review.
    • "Did I just say that out loud?" in Everything Can Stop Mr Domino.
    • In the Sly Cooper retrospective, he joked that the first game was renamed Sly Raccoon in Europe because "Cooper" is a very powerful curse word in European English. Since then, he's treated the word "Cooper" as if it were a curse word.
    • The frequent use of the word "Shmickles" from Bo' Selecta! as an Unusual Euphemism in Top 10 Things in Games that Scared Me as a Kid.
  • Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!: Angelica— Er, Fanny's grandfather in Totally Fanny:
    Grandpa: Sorry darling, I'm going to be brutally honest here: you look fucking hideous and I'm afraid I'm gonna have to give you a two out of ten for looking terrible and being a fanny of a granddaughter. Fuck you!
  • Sensory Abuse: Pops up quite a bit, usually through extensive visual effects and suddenly increased volume.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Using the 1980 Doctor Who theme in "Fabuloso Sword 2" as his car hurtles through space.
    • In retrospectives, he plays the Vib-Ribbon tutorial music whenever he states a fun fact.
    • A particularly unusual one in Santa Claus Saves the Earth. In reaction to the terrible graphics, he uses a clip from a cs188 YouTube Poop of Nickelback that sentence-mixes the opening line of "Photograph" into "Look at this fuckin' shit!"
      • Also in Santa Claus Saves the Earth, he plays a theme from Final Fantasy 6 (16 bit) to deliver a harsh burn against the 32 bit midi music in the game by comparison.
    • In "Rascal", during Caddy's 10-Minute Retirement, Caddy re-dubs himself "MrCaddyPasta" as a reference to MrCreepyPasta.
    • In "Destruction Derby Deux", when looking at the Wikipedia page, he mentions it being as large as Tom Cruise, or The Prince, or "Something to do with video game midgets". While he says the last quote, an image of the titular character from the BBC game show Raven appears.
  • Smash Cut: Used and abused.
  • So Bad, It's Good: invoked The Great Escape in his opinion, especially due to how broken the last level is.
  • Some Dexterity Required: Just looking at the controls for The Fifth Element causes him to vomit, with how bizarre and complicated some of the inputs are.
    Caddy: When did this game become fucking TAKEEN?!
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Prone to making random quotes about people, such as: In the words of Gandhi, "Let's get on with this shit". And when he was a child, he hated Totally Angelica so much he "Drowned it in wine many years ago."
  • Sphere Eyes: When Caddy notices how everything in Croc: Legend of The Gobbos has large, disjointed eyes, he starts to wonder about the implications of this. Like how it feels to grasp the back of your eyeballs.
  • Stable Time Loop: His collab with Brutalmoose. His half (The Poo Race) opens with him receiving an ultimatum from Brutalmoose, and ends with him hacking into the latter's computer. Brutalmoose's half ('Crisis City') opens with Caddicarus hacking into his computer, and ends with him getting the evil idea to send Caddicarus The Zoo Race. note  It's never explained.
  • Stylistic Suck: His Putty Squad is a mild example, featuring no real introduction, a lampshaded No Ending, and the whole video being even more rapid-fire than usual. He explains at the start he had about four days to make the video, and despite the rushed pace of the finished product, it's still got his usual production values.
  • Suckiness Is Painful: The truly bad games Caddy plays tend to have this effect on him, from bouts of depression, mania, and hair loss.
  • Suddenly Shouting: Caddy tends to do this quite a lot, and it's usually edited to be even louder.
  • Take a Third Option: Near the end of his Destruction Derby 2 review, Caddy feels that the game wasn't quite good enough to be salvaged, yet not terrible enough to be slaughtered. Thus, the "slauvage" was born.
    • Quack Attack, The Grinch, and Jaws Unleashed got the slauvage as well. In order, they got it for being a somewhat uninspired Crash Bandicoot clone; for having some frustrating and underwhelming quests; and for having poor control schemes but a few fun and funny moments. He also tries to slauvage The Great Escape for being So Bad, It's Goodinvoked, but the game's brokenness has him laughing too hard to carry on with it.
    • Surprisingly averted with Croc. Although he points out a myriad of flaws both minor and major, he still feels that the game is fun overall and holds enough nostalgia for him to give the salvage instead of the slauvage.
  • Talkative Loon
  • 10-Minute Retirement: In "Rascal", Caddy ends taking a hiatus due to how horrendous the game is, and takes his channel in a new direction: horror story narration (re-dubbing himself "MrCaddyPasta").
  • That Reminds Me of a Song: Subverted in his The Grinch Review, when he notes that the episode is ending on a surprisingly happy note, and then decides to sing Thankful Heart... but only gets to sing the first two lines before ending abruptly due to copyright reasons.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: Discussed In-Universe whenever reviewing licensed games. The Fifth Element, for example, has him saying that by now, we should know not to get our hopes up for them. Except for Spiderman 2, "...because that game was the fucking TITS!"
  • Threatening Shark: In the Jaws Unleashed review, Caddy keeps referring to the game as being "like [x]... BUT WITH SHARKS!", prompting a shark to jump from the side of the screen accompanied by a loud guitar chord.
  • Title Drop:
    • Referenced and heavily lampshaded in the "Sly Cooper" Retrospective.
      Congratulations, you just TITLE-DROPPED!
    • Played straight in the Bratz episode
  • Trigger Happy: A Running Gag involves Caddy shooting anyone who joins him.
    • Instead of shooting Scarfuhlu, he uses his new-found psychic powers to make his head explode.
    • The only people Caddy has never killed are The Completionist and Brutalmoose.
    • This is also how he "slaughters" games, by shooting them with a pistol. The Simpsons Skateboarding got several shots.
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: Whilst not as prevalent as most examples of the trope, he tends to slip one in some of his lines.
  • Unexplained Recovery: In Santa Claus Saves The Earth, Caddy is forced to shoot his beloved PS1, but it returns completely intact in "Voluptuous Raider". However, this is eventually subverted (somehow) in "The Grinch", which continues the story of the former episode and justifies the PS1's return.
  • Viewers Are Morons: By Caddy's own interpretation, on occasion. Firstly in the Coronation Street "game", where the hint system is more like, "Can't find it? Here it is, you twat!". The second time is the patronizing clown he uses to state the obvious in 3, 2, 1, Smurf. The third time is the sarcastic hints in Bratz Rock Angelz.
    • Games aimed at kids that treat the player as an idiot are a general Berserk Button for him. He points out "Kids may be easily amused, but they are not stupid" and excessive hand-holding is just insulting to their intelligence.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Caddy and Ian, at least until their feud becomes all-out war.
  • Vocal Evolution: His delivery has gotten deeper and more mature as of the 2014 episodes.
  • Voice of the Legion: Caddy often uses this effect to make a point in a comedic way.
  • Why Won't You Die?: Jordan to Caddy at the end of the Resident Evil 0 review.
    Jordan: Die. JUST DIE!
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz
    You don't know Bratz? Consider yourself lucky. I mean literally; Bratz by name, brats by nature. And it has a Z in it: becauz itz coolz.
    • Strangely, when pointing out the Z, he pronounces it the American way. He also does this in his The Simpsons: Tony Hoax Skateboarding video.
  • Younger Than They Look: He was in his late teens when he started reviewing.
  • Your Head Asplode: Caddy's psychic powers allow him to do this to Scarfuhlu in Fabuloso Sword II.
