- Acceptable Targets: In the Civilization video, Brent illustrates the "spread your equally valid religions" line with props from various faiths. Three of these shots are basically respectful; the fourth, for Christianity, features Pedobear in a pope hat. (For extra points, the Islam shot makes fun of Fox News.)
- Alternate Character Interpretation:
- "Kirby with Lyrics" depicts Kirby as a monster who plans to devour everyone in the world (and also a Nazi).
- "Baby Mario & Papa Yoshi" shows Yoshi planning to cook and eat Baby Mario when he first saw him, but he slowly changed his mind and decided to raise the baby himself.
- Broken Base: For "Metroid: Fight for Love". Some people find it to be a heartwarming and spectacularly animated showstopper, while others dislike it for playing up Samus' feminine and sensitive side (similar to Metroid: Other M), for having her sing in an unironic, Disneylike fashion (further reinforcing the "softness" and "femininity"), and for giving her a random Non-Action Guy love interest. Brent himself acknowledged how polarizing the video turned out to be, but claimed that he'd "rather be controversial than forgettable".
- Cant Unhear It: Listen to his songs a lot, then go play some classic video games. Odds are, your brain is automatically going to start adding his lyrics if any of music he's added words to come on.
- Critical Research Failure: The verse in the Super Mario Land 2 song comparing the game to Mein Kampf has a double-whammy: 1) Hitler wasn't a Euro-Anglo man, 2) neither is Mario, he's either Italian or Italian-American. Might be intentional, though.
- In his "Contra With Lyrics" video, he claims that the "R" power-up stands for "rarely helpful" since he doesn't know what it does. In reality, it actually makes your shots more rapid in the game.
- Crosses the Line Twice:
- "Tetris With Lyrics" which goes on in great length about how girls are inherently addicted to Tetris. The particular moment of the second line crossing is when he uses the tune to hypnotize his girl into forgetting he's a dick.
- His performance of the oddly upbeat Game Over music from "Mega Man 3 With Lyrics". It would be annoying if the game was just making fun of you for dying, but seeing Floss dressed as the cartridge in a top hat while cheerfully singing about how worthless you are, how everybody hates you, and that your mom should've "drowned your ass in boiling water"? Hysterical.
- The entirety of "Limbo with Lyrics".
- In "Super Mario Land 2 with Lyrics", comparing the Mario/Wario rivalry to Hitler's book Mein Kampf and deducing that Nintendo are a bunch of Nazi-sympathizing Jew haters is either this or just plain tasteless.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Has his own page.
- Fridge Brilliance: In Phoenix Wright with lyrics, clips from Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney despite being the fourth canon game in the main series (As opposed to being a spin-off) and Phoenix being a major character in said game, are surprisingly absent. (and to a lesser extent Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, which actually is a spin-off). Well, the song is called "Phoenix Wright with Lyrics" so the fact that all the games shown in the video have "Phoenix Wright" in their respective titles, makes perfect sense. (After all, this is "Phoenix Wright with lyrics" not "Apollo Justice with lyrics".)
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "Civilization With Lyrics" ends with the spoken lyrics "Civilization is the shit! I hope they don't drop the ball when they bring it to Facebook!". General consensus is they did.
- Genius Bonus: In the first lines of "Thief With Lyrics", Garret states that he has "moves like a ferret". The word "ferret" is derived from the Latin word for thief.
- Hell Is That Noise: Track 18 of "Bits Of Me"note . Like the songs on the album? Try listening to them all at once. What if Giygas had lyrics?
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- "This oughta be the ending credits theme" from the "Ducktales Moon Theme With Lyrics". For the Remastered! version, they actually made it the end credits song!
- They also explain how Scrooge is breathing in space.
- The Bioshock Infinite song includes a Take That line describing the racist, jingoistic, Founding Father worshiping city of Columbia as a "Tea Party Fox News Disneyland". Then this happened.
- In his "top 15 overlooked NES themes" list he predicted that someday they're going to make a movie similar to Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Toy Story but with video games. They did just a few years later.
- "Earthbound with Lyrics" states that Earthbound/Mother 2 is "a sequel to some other game which is all in Japanese!" As of 2015, Earthbound Beginnings / Mother 1 is officially available in English.
- Nightmare Fuel: "Kirby With Lyrics" has a disturbing take on the title character, similar to There Will Be Brawl. It depicts Kirby as a monster whose only purpose seems to be devouring everything and everyone. It is a part of Flosstober.
- The Slenderman Song could count, depending on how scary certain people find him. It's played straight with the creepy images and disturbing lyrics. The video also subverts this, with a bunch of goofy images of him thrown in, and the song being sung to the (Ignoring the lyrics) happy upbeat tune of "The Candy Man Can". Interestingly in turn, that makes Slenderman slightly less scary, while making the original song feel creepy.
- Painful Rhyme: His cover of the Zelda main theme begins with one.
"Do you recognize this melody? Well, duh...""But why? 'cause it's The Motherfucking Legend Of Zelda!"
You can change the future a lot, see?
- And in his Civilization cover:
You can even make Jewish Nazis!
The moral of this fable is do not eat a baby'Cause he'll become your friend one day maybe.
- His cover of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island:
The voice of Bowser sounds ratherLike Cookie Monster's drunk brother.
- From Super Mario Sunshine with lyrics:
- Strawman Has a Point: Most of his potshots and accusations towards PETA are actually true.
- Tear Jerker:
- "The 2-2 Blues"; a Randy Newman-esque arrangement of the Underwater theme from the first Super Mario Bros. game, all about how, no matter how difficult the quest to save her may be, Mario will always keep swimming towards Peach.
- The video "Brent & Brett: Game Drunks" (essentially, the Floss Man and Brent Vanderbrook of Captain S fame play a drinking version of video games - each failure or in-game death means a swig of beer, with a shot of harder - and apparently disgusting-tasting - alcohol for losing a round.) After Floss takes one more shot for losing in Call of Duty, it goes to a black screen saying that they both died of alcohol poisoning. And sad music as well.
- "The Ballad of Jeff/Winter's Remix" has Brent singing about Jeff's depression of being alone and wanting more in life. You'll likely cry from how beautifully dramatic it is, rather than outright sadness.
- A very minor one. But he once made an Earthbound with Lyrics but it's exclusive only to Earthbound's youtube channel. So it would go straight over the radar of fans who only know the songs through his channel. That is rather sad for an excellent song that doesn't deserve to be overlooked.
