YMMV / danisnotonfire

  • Cargo Ship: Dan/Maltesers, Played for Laughs. He really does like his chocolate candy balls, though. Dan has since expressed that he'd rather not have this joke be associated with his identity or content.
  • Fan Hater: Several people have distaste for fans of Dan and Phil, due to their omnipresence, general obsessiveness, and in many cases, missing the goal of the videos, instead treating the creators like they were teen idols. Dan himself does not hate his fanbase, but he's not afraid to poke fun at or even scold members of the group who are more obsessive or "like boys with brown hair but don't pay attention to my pesky personality".
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: When Dan and Louise prank-call their friends, one of the calls is to Louise's husband on the pretense that Louise took home several kittens. After the prank, Louise jokes "I hope this doesn't end our marriage". Not too long afterward, they separated.
  • Ho Yay: Many fans will be able to tell you exactly how every interaction between Dan and Phil is a sign that the two are together. They're aware of this and seem to enjoy pushing the issue to mess with said fans.
  • Memetic Molester: Manesh, a creeper who wouldn't leave Dan and Phil alone while they were trolling people on a dating app. Once they accidentally send him their address, Dan guesses that he'll show up at the door wearing a trench coat.
  • Memetic Mutation: Whenever Dan and Phil get jumpscared in a game, more often than not it's Dan's reaction instead of the scare itself that startles people.
  • The Woobie:
    • Dan himself. Especially whenever the infamous Quarter-Life Crisis comes up. It's hard to not want to give him a hug.
    • To a lesser and far more comical extent, "Becky."
