* DudeNotFunny: A frequent reaction to some of his articles, particularly the ones about [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=elizabeth_smart Elizabeth Smart]] and [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=creeve Christopher Reeve]]. Maddox, of course, would point out that he wasn't trying to be funny.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Look at the screenshot montage on his [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=xbox_suckit Xbox rant]], written in 2002. The games shown are ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 3'', ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'', and ''VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun'', three games Maddox ranted would never appear on Xbox. All three games eventually made it to {{Xbox}} or {{Xbox 360}}. '''Yes, even ''Radiant Silvergun''.'''
** One of his complaints about ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' was the unimaginative name given to General Grievous, suggesting that they call all future bad guys "Evil" and "Bad". Come ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' Season 4, there is a Darth Maul {{expy}} introduced given the name ''"Savage Oppress"''.
** His [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=iphone anti-iPhone page]], which features a "[[BlatantLies non-biased]], side-by-side comparison of some key features of each phone". Several of the features that he brings up are part of the Nokia [=E70=] (the phone he compares to the iPhone) but not the iPhone have become standard in later generations of the iPhone, including custom ringtones, sound and video recording, MMS, voice dialing (through Siri), and instant messaging.
** [[http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=epic This 2010 article]] rants about the overuse of the word "epic" and shows several examples of things having the word in their title. Come 2013, and there exists a movie called, well, [[WesternAnimation/{{Epic}} take a wild guess]].
* MisaimedFandom: A nice portion of his fanbase are the same exact people Maddox rags on, if some of the fan mail he shows is any indication.
* NightmareFuel: Though his portrayal of violent imagery is pretty much always [[PlayedForLaughs played for laughs]], the description of a girl '''peeling off and eating her face while bleeding to death''' in [[http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=onions this article]] comes off as way more disturbing than funny.
* SlasherSmile: After reading hate mail criticizing him about his lack of smile, he has done something between this and the PsychoticSmirk at the end of many of his YouTube videos - despite his rather heated delivery, he retains quite a relaxed posture and attire. Many first-time viewers (and some even long-time fans) get surprised by this.
