YMMV: Familiar Faces
  • Acceptable Target:
    • invokedTo him, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, its fans, and even the cast and crew.
    • CR himself depending on who you ask.
  • Broken Base: Let's just say CR's rather... loud opinions on MLP's third season haven't gone over well with his fanbase.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: His numerous Take That's lodged at My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic for many.
    • A nasty and very unfortunately ill-timed example came when he made a comment that Discord would have elements from other character John De Lancie has played, mainly Donald Margolis, heavily implying that he was hoping Discord would shoot himself like Margolis did. This comment was made only a few hours before it was discovered Jew Wario committed suicide in depression. CR would quickly delete this comment not long after, but by that point it had already generated a bit of scorn.
      • This was even worse because it came out shortly after the incident with Michael Morones, an 11-year old boy who attempted suicide because people were bullying him for liking the show.
      • During one of his recent rants about MLP yet again involving a usage of a picture that someone took from an artist, he took the time to bash the piece and then proceeded to casually insult John Enter for no good reason.
  • Fan Hater: He has gotten into clashes with people who enjoyed the third season of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. On his Tumblr he has directed particular scorn for the controversial season finale, declaring the people who liked it to be killing the series.
    • Considering his little spat towards Mr.Enter, he could be seen as this to the guy.
    • He has similar feelings towards the film Prometheus, with his audio review mostly being a rant towards overly-defensive fans attacking him for hating it.
    • Inverted in his Big Bertha review when he chews out everyone who didn't like the Super Mario Bros. Movie.
  • Fetish Retardant: The Ladies of Star Wars playing card deck, which is a mash of rubber forehead aliens, green skinned space babes and humans, with ages ranging from 14 to 80.
  • Growing the Beard: CR's scripts and jokes have grown commendably sharper and funnier within the span of less than year. And with his Lamar Smith video, he's shown to even be willing to seriously discuss political issues like SOPA/PIPA.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • At the end of his MLP retrospective, he concludes that he isn't worried about the show's future without Faust, since she's leaving it in good hands. Based on his attitude today...she didn't.
    • There's also a scene in his review of Super Nerds where he tells someone to "go to the moon and go buck yourself!" during a heated discussion over an episode. Very harsh when he's been known to rage about the show to several people.
    • His scathing review of The Mysterious Mare Do Well ends with him claiming that he knows there are people who like the episode and doesn't want to take their enjoyment of the episode away from them. Shame the same can't be said for fans of the third season.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks: Since its second season finale, CR has increasingly complained about the direction My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has taken since then, which has angered many fans of the show. It doesn't help that despite the fact he said he was no longer going to be involved in the show, he keeps taking hits at it every time, to the point where he posted a response video to the Season 4 finale simply to insult it.
  • Hypocritical Fandom: Many of Chad's fans are this when it comes to MLP. Being that they constantly accuse those who dislike him of being irrational and blind, while irrationally and blindly agreeing with Chad over the current state of FIM.
  • Never Live It Down: His intense hatred of MLP:FiM Season 3 for him and his fans.
  • Trolling Creator: Some people think that Chad's anti-MLP comments are intentionally inflammatory so he can get a rise out of the bronies. It's to the point where it's not even funny and just comes off as him seeking attention.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: CR occasionally makes use of computer graphics, and he's not half bad.
  • The Woobie:
    • CR revealed that a sudden hiatus of his work was caused by three deaths in his family. Apparently, each death happened for different reasons and in different states. He admits it's ridiculous, but that doesn't make it any less depressing.
    • The opening of the Samhain where he says that some asshole stole half the decorative tombstones from his yard.
