- Brain Bleach: His reaction to seeing Will Smith's... "hancock" in Wild Wild West.
- Cameo: He has one in The Nostalgia Critic's review of Star Trek 3.
- And another in the Critic and Linkara's review of Star Trek 9.
- He appeared in a "Previously on Atop the Fourth Wall" section.
- And did this combined with Dead Star Walking in To Boldly Flee.
- Going the other way, his ''Zombie Apocalypse" review had him being constantly interrupted by the various horror and b-movie reviewers who wanted to collaborate with him on the review/steal the review from him.
- He also has a cameo towards the end in, OF ALL THINGS, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. NO, really, he's the extra behind Dave and his girlfriend during the last performance. Here's the scene
- Captain Obvious: Dr. Wiki appears to explain various scifi terms that people may not understand well – and things that everyone understands perfectly, such as what a bicycle is.
- Collective Groan: When he reacts to a "frozen then crushed" death in Jason X with "Well, that was cold".
- Crossover: He co-reviewed Titan A.E. with MarzGurl on the grounds that it was a sci-fi movie.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Description Cut: In Splice, he complains that using you own DNA in an hybrid is akin to a bad Self-Insert Fic. Cue Bennett the Sage reading a fic-like diary of the scientist...
- Designated Hero: Calls out Jonathan from the Rollerball remake for this, along with being a Supporting Protagonist.
- Explosive Decompression: A slip-up on his part. In the Titan A.E. review, there is a scene where two characters are thrown into space, and manage to make it back into a ship, relatively unharmed. The characters in question exhale before leaving the ship.
- Due to the fan reaction, in his cross-over Total Recall (1990) review Sci-Fi, when asked, has to put up the disclaimer that the effects of explosive decompression have never been tested on humans and as such cannot comment.
- Foreshadowing: A "foreshadowing hammer" is used as a complaint on how Splice is unsubtle with it.
- Hilariousin Hindsight: He says in his G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra review that they should have brought in Roadblock as a character, and could have cast the Rock as someone... cue G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
- Hurricane of Puns: Frequently when The League of Inebriated Gentlemen meet, both intentional and unintentional.
- Hypocritical Humor: With lampshaping in the Superman Returns episode. Leo spends the episode showing off his Unlimited Wardrobe of Superman shirts. At a certain point he complains about the film's problems with inconsistency looking down at the shirt that kept changing...
- Never Trust a Trailer: He complains that Splice used only one out-of-context scene to imply it had many horror elements.
- Nice Guy: One of the few critics on Channel Awesome not to play a total asshole.
- Non-Human Sidekick: Dr. Wiki, a personification of That Other Wiki which is voiced by various people, including Linkara and Angry Joe.
- One of Us: One example: he uses a screenshot of the Black Dude Dies First page in the Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within review.
- Running Gag:
- Samurai Ponytail: His hair.
- Shared Universe: Automatically considered part of the Reviewaverse because he's part of Channel Awesome and did/had lots of cameos and crossovers.
- The Stinger: He always closes with a "Sci-Fi Clip" adequate to the reviewed movie.
- The Tape Knew You Would Say That: Ma-Ti comes back to life during the Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within episode, only for the stinger to reveal it was all a pre-recorded message for anyone that would review the movie.
- Teleportation Misfire: In The Sixth Day, he accidentally beams Critic onto his lap, which starts the crossover and creates another version of Critic who wakes up in his closet after the review is over.
- Top Ten List: His are "Five Best and Five Worst".
- Yaoi Fanboy: For a joke, he casually suggests at the end of “The Sixth Day” review that original!Critic keep his cloned self as a Sex Slave. He and Critic have a lot of Homoerotic Subtext generally, but usually Critic's the only one doing the molesting.
