These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Base Breaker: Smosh's gaming channel, Smosh Games. Is it an entertaining spin-off with promising updates, or is it just another generic gaming channel with the Smosh brand name on it in an attempt to create a Cash Cow Franchise?
Anthony's new haircut. Is it awesome or a loss of his one defining trait?
Broken Base: There's a divide in fans about the content Smosh produces. Some people still like what Smosh does today, but there's a group of fans who insist that Smosh pretty much Jumped the Shark after 2009.
"I'm the Teleporting, Teleporting, Teleporting Fat Guy!!!"
One word: Stranded.
Day 17: "I found an apple in the sand, but it only lasted us a day. We knew that we would have to choose which one of us we would eat first. Robbie and I both chose Jamal, but he called us racist and threatened to eat himself. We told him that wasn't physically possible."
Day 18: "We were wrong. Jamal ate himself."
Anytime Officer Anous shoots somebody and goes overboard with it.
In their recent Pokemon parody, the Monkey/Mankey gag.
This, from the epilogue of the "Anthony is Bald" videos, where Anthony and Ian sing about being best friends:
Hugh Jasshol: "GAAAAAY! Why don't you two fairies go get married already?! UNSUBSCRIBE!!" (gets beaten)
Also, the fact that Anthony always picks phallic-shaped foods for the Food Battles (taquitos, churros, chili peppers, etc.) Even more disturbingly, Ian's constant favorite, pink frosted sprinkled donuts, has a hole as opposed to a pole...
Growing the Beard: As of 2010, the episodes definitely improved in both acting and material.
Ho Yay: Very heavy on it, forhilariousreasons. Typically between Anthony and Ian, but other names are mentioned in connection to this (for example, Ian's bucket list includes "Eat Gummi Bears off LL Cool J's abs.")
Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Mari got a lot of hate when she was first introduced as the new hostess of Smosh Pit Weekly, but after a few episodes passed, people warmed up a lot to her. (The fact that the show got rid of a few annoyingelements may have helped as well.)
In "5,000,000 Subscribers," the guys presented a Mockumentary about the production of Smosh on a Hollywood soundstage, NOT in the Sacramento suburbs they call home. They showed themselves shooting an "outdoor scene" on green screen, and it was, again, painfully conspicuous.
"Stuck In A Toilet!" featured a pretty weird one - at the end, when Anthony shuts the car door on his genitals, but if you look at the reflection in the door itself, his fly is very clearly not open. But it also results in a hilarious new definition of Right Through His Pants!
Hilariously lampshaded in "Good vs. Surprisingly Good!"
Squick: In "What if Holdays Were Real", Ian and Anthony finding out where Easter Eggs really come from.
And a bunch of other things besides.
Tear Jerker: The end of Anthony's Draw My Life video was funny and heartwarming, but there are some depressing moments throughout, such as his mother suffering from panic attacks and his grandmother dying when he was 14.
The ending of Stranded, at least through the eyes of the stranded guy.
