- The Big Guy
- Black Humor: One of his staples—particularly on his Twitter account.
- Brick Joke: During the sequence in the Year One Brawl when people from each side keep showing up and Nostalgia Critic exclaims their names in shock:
Sean shows up.
Critic: Epic Fail Guy!
Sean: (irritated) Sean.
- Then, during Kickassia, when N.Critic is phoning everyone to tell them about the invasion:
Critic: Hang on, I've got to call Sean.
Critic: The epic fail guy!
Chick: Oh. He's funny.
- Catch-Phrase: "I have lost all faith in children's advertising!"
- Don't Explain the Joke: Occasionally guilty of this.
- Made of Iron: Shows in the anniversary brawl, when 5 punches from Angry Joe don't even make him flinch.
- Ninja: SUMO NINJA! He lurks in the shadows... very large shadows.
- Psycho for Hire: His SUMO NINJA persona, available for assassinations, assisted suicides, and birthday parties.
- Running Gag: Sean crying in the shower to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" after a particularly epic fail. NEVER gets old.
- Also the "audience" booing when he makes a tasteless joke. Happens often enough that he was shocked when it didn't and made an even more tasteless one to get the boos.
- And his hatred of Rise of the Argonauts—which even went along with the "My Heart Will Go On" crying in the shower.
- Self-Deprecation: Another one of his comedy staples. Witness his cameo as a service repairman in JewWario's Warion Saga:
JW: What are you doing working for Nintendo?
[sighs, shrugs] It was either this or stripping as the Kool-Aid Man◊
. So you gonna let me in, or what?
JW: Well sure, but...why aren't you in like, a uniform or something?
Sean: It's Casual Friday! Be glad I'm even wearing pants.
