* BaseBreaker: During his time on TGWTG, he fast became one of these due to a mix of an antagonistic attitude on Twitter (Especially against cult shows like ''Young Justice'', ''RWBY'' and ''Korra'', to the point that for the latter two he admitted to only watching them just to mock them after). It got so bad, that several fan communities (TGWTG Secrets and the Secret Treehouse) put him on a blacklist where he wouldn't be talked about.
* BrokenBase: As mentioned on WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee's YMMV page, Hope's portrayal of Edward from ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' has earned mixed reviews. Shortly after the episode where se became Edward, Hope Tweeted that the ratio was around 70% in favor of it, with 30% disliking it. Funnily enough, this was long after he himself had noted in his review of ''Bebop'' that the character is extremely tricky to play without veering into being annoying.
* CriticalResearchFailure:
** The Witchblade review. When listing off differences between the anime and comics (in voiceover form with Nash, a casual fan of the comics, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny slowly becoming more distressed as they go on]]), the majority of the listed differences are not supported by the facts of the show. To be fair, however, none of his errors are things that are blatantly inaccurate, and one of them is supported by what's shown and said in the series until you consider that [[spoiler:Masane is a temporary bearer, not the intended recipient of the Witchblade.]]
** His retrospectives on ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' mentions that the series was meant to be only thirteen episodes, which has been long debunked in the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' fandom.
* CreatorsPet: He is a mixed example (as he's regarded as being a good critic on his own), but this comes across primarily in his crossovers with other critics, especially in his review of ''Film/SuckerPunch'' with [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] and ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' with [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle]]. Jesu throughout the ''Sucker Punch'' review physically abuses Film Brain (a rare case of DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale for TGWTG), and her crossover with Kyle drives him insane (and is brought up multiple times afterwords). Also, while most crossovers have one person suffering for something (WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic frequently being bullied, Todd chasing after Lupa until WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee, etc), this never happens to JO, which is highly glaring.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The Penguin Lottery [[spoiler:wherein he broadcasted his game of Zoo Tycoon, creating an exhibit with 150 penguins and 5 polar bears, and had the people watching his stream bet on which penguin would survive the longest. Accompanied by Yakkity Sax.]]
* FanHater: One of the causes of the general BrokenBase around his.
* FoeYay: The thing between him and Bennett The Sage, even by TGWTG's standards and that's saying something.
* HePannedItNowHeSucks: Like any internet critic, he's had his share of this.
** His review of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' proved to be very controversial in the show's fandom, and led to his old [[UnfortunateImplications homophobic comments]] that [[OldShame he'd disowned entirely by that point]] [[NeverLiveItDown being brought up]] and causing no end of problems for the TGWTG producers.
** In one week, he upset [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Bronies]], [[Franchise/StarTrek Trekkies]], and [[Series/DoctorWho Whovians]] by slamming ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' (before it was released), ''[[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness Star Trek Into Darkness]]'' and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor The Name of the Doctor]]". Best summed up by [[https://twitter.com/eddievercetti/status/335849781849124865 this response]].
** He also has done several twitter tirades about ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' and its fanbase. When people responded, he tweeted a sarcastic comment of [[StrawFan "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST HAVE LITERALLY ZERO STANDARDS OR TASTE"]].
** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' fans got quite upset with him when he compared Korra to Anakin Skywalker to the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels and acted like you were just kidding yourself if you thought she was a heroic person. And then he called her a "cunt" the next week, which got even worse backlash.
* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct:
** His cameo in the ''WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh'' review for ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' had him switch on a dime from his familiar cheery self to heartbreakingly solemn and disappointed when Kyle lashes out at him in his depression.
** His ''Katawa Seiyu'' auditions continue the trend of showing off Hope's acting skills, particularly her audition for Rin, which can be seen [[https://soundcloud.com/jesuotaku/sets/katawa-seiyu-demos here.]]
** The amount of characters' voice he can display during any of his Let's Plays, cornerstones of his Saturday stream session, is astounding.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** In his ''Eiken'' review, Sage points out that JO would probably not have that much of a problem with it if the show were about a [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys a cast full of muscular pretty boys]] in revealing outfits and with big...endowments, to which JO awkwardly tries to change the subject. Skip ahead a couple of years, and JO sees ''Anime/{{Free}}''...which is pretty much ''exactly what Sage described''. And JO ''really did'' like it![[note]]Although that's more to do with the fact that the show's writers are at least ''trying'' to give it a plot and three-dimensional characters along with the manservice than the manservice itself[[/note]]
** At the end of the review of ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts'', to explain the severity of the show's SuddenDownerEnding while avoiding actually spoiling it, he compares it to the ending of ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', feeling that there's next to zero chance of that ever getting officially released in America so it's okay to compromise and spoil that series' end instead. Nearly three years after the review was posted, [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-02-26/discotek-licenses-school-days-magical-heart-kokoro-chan Discotek revealed that they had acquired the rights to the School Days anime and would be giving it an American release the following summer.]]
