YMMV / Paw Dugan

  • Awesome Music: A main focus of his. In the boss battle with Dark Paw, he uses "The Battle For Everyone's Soul" from Persona 3.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: For a brief period in 2016, Paw held the world speed-run record for King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!. Someone did eventually top him, but credit where credit's due.
  • Director Displacement:
    • In his "Top 9 Best Movie Songs", Paw refers to Danny Elfman working with director Tim Burton on The Nightmare Before Christmas. Except Henry Selick directed that film, Burton produced. To be fair, though, he's not the first person to make that mistake.
    • And in his The Blues Brothers review, he calls John Belushi 'Jim' twice. Now, Jim and John are interchangeable names. Someone called John can easily be called Jim and not bat an eyelid...except for the fact that John has a brother named Jim.
    • Paw's review of Snoopy, Come Home lists The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh as one other non-Disney movie featuring Sherman Brothers music, even though Disney made it. Paw also mentions the Sherman Brothers writing music for an adaptation of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but instead of a cover for the 1974 movie, he displays one for the 1993 adaptation. Worse, the covers he displayed for both these movies prominently feature Disney's logo.
    • Also from the Snoopy, Come Home review, he calls the creator of Peanuts Bill Schulz, conflating Bill Melendez, director and animator of many a Peanuts special, and actual series creator Charles Schulz.
  • Dork Age:
    • Not all of Paw's viewers approve of his current tendency in Music Movies to review songs out of order. Sometimes, he doesn't even review all of the songs, but most viewers unfortunately don't notice.
    • He has however gone back to reviewing all songs in the film he ends up reviewing(With the exception of Reprises unless it is really different) and keeping them in order.
  • Ear Worm:
    "You thought you were hot — guess what, you're not! YOU ARE DEAD, DEAD, DEAD..."
    • The opening theme to Snoopy, Come Home, to the point of interfering with his daily life.
  • He Really Can Act:
    • In his King's Quest 3 AGD live Let's Play, he reads from a character's journal as that character. While perhaps not Oscar-worthy, it's definitely a pretty impressive bit of thespianism.
    • His voice for Ad Avis in his "Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire AGD VGA remake" Let's Play is especially good, both during the hypnotism scene and the Forbidden City scene. His voice for him, ESPECIALLY the hypnotism scene, is particularly chilling.
      • In his most recent Quest For Glory 3 video, his voice for Khatib is quite good, both as an old man voice plus the layers he adds onto it really sells it.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In Part Eleven of the King's Quest V LP, Paw suggests "throwing a pie at it Three Stooges-style" as a way of getting rid of the snake. This is how you kill the yeti later in the game.
    • In the Interstella 5555 review, Nella is riding in an elevator [1:42] and behind her is a wedding related advertisement. Its hilarious once you remember that this review was one of the first, if not the first, crossovers for now newlyweds Paw and Elisa back before they were even dating.
    • Similarly, their joint-review of Fantasia has this brief exchange after Paw gets a bit macabre during the "Dance of the Hours" segment.
    Paw: I think you're rubbing off on me.
    Elise: Heh, you wish.
  • Memetic Mutation: His King's Quest related stuff has "Put gem in mouth."
  • Porting Disaster: Paw has done live Let's Play streams of some disastrous ports of the King's Quest games onto the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Master System.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome:
    • Paw is becoming known for having some of the best special effects of the TGWTG team. A good example is the blue screen work in his review of the music-based puzzle game Chime.
    • Putting together that Top 9: Video Game Composers. That sprite animation is hard work. And he did it with his standard video editing program, not Flash or anything else actually meant to do animation.
