YMMV: Chip Cheezum

  • Alternate Character Interpretation:
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    Chip: (having just shot an enemy) "Oh, he thought he could dodge my bullets. (Beat) The baby."
    Ironicus: "You're not Neo, you're just a pirate!"
    Chip: "I'm talking about the baby. He thought he could dodge my bullets. I'm shooting at him right now."
    Ironicus: "With a silencer, clearly."
    • During the Metal Gear Solid 2 Let's Play, where at different points during the game the video loses focus from the actual game to him playing a demo of a Cabela's hunting game. It tends to happen when Rose addresses Raiden as Jack (the main character of the Cabela's game is also named Jack).
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Chip's dad (aka Dad Buster) wandered into the recordings of No More Heroes and rambled about Star Trek and immediately stole the show. Since then, Chip has shared many anecodotes relating to his father (for example, watching Chip play MGS3 and thinking it was Harry Potter).
    • Ironicus admitted to liking Mil, because he looks like "that one Sonic the Hedgehog fanfic self insert character."
    • Ironicus states repeatedly how much he loves Con and Mask de Smith in Killer7, as well as Travis (thanks to being the only Remnant Psyche that even remotely tries to make sense) and Yoon-Hyun (because of the double bird he's always giving you, bolo tie be damned).
    • Monsoon from Metal Gear Rising. Both Ironicus and Chip both actively wonder how a solo DLC starring him would be insanely awesome and Chip seems to regard him as one of the better bosses in the game.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • While making fun of Nathan Drake's Kleptomaniac Hero tendencies, Chip imagines Drake finding a Canadian penny and claiming it to be valuable treasure. A few months after that video was released, the Royal Canadian Mint took the penny out of circulation, and thus, given a decade or two, it will be a rare treasure!
    • At one point in MGS3, Chip mentions that he wishes you could throw porn magazines rather than having to place them. Nearly four years later, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance comes out and lets you do just that with the similar-in-concept photo frames.
      • In the same LP, Chip says that "People in Metal Gear, they have special spines... Nanomachines." And then came Revengeance.
    • During the LP of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Snarkcookie notes that Big Boss aims with the eye that he lost, so Chip jokingly proposes that he has a "Phantom Eye" that can see. A couple of weeks later, The Phantom Pain was announced, and was later revealed to be the next title with Big Boss in it.
  • Memetic Badass, Memetic STD God: Sully, oh so much. Early in their first Uncharted LP, Ironicus says that he's so well-hung and so infirm that he can only get an erection through industrial equipment, including a pulley system. Lampshaded early on in the Uncharted 2 LP.
    General Ironicus: Sully's already the best thing in this game and he hasn't even shown up yet!
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • In No More Heroes, the last couple of "Bitter" fights have weird (and deliberate) audio problems, and the two eventually start saying things indicating that the apocalypse is coming.
    • The magic skull seemingly Mind Raping Chip into doing things he normally mocks.
