YMMV: Versus

For the Let's Play series by JoshJepson and Attacking Tucans:

General

Super Mario Sunshine Versus
  • Ho Yay: Part of their sense of humor.
  • Memetic Mutation: Not from this playthrough, but Josh's "it's not supposed to go at an angle" from his original LP of Mario Sunshine is referenced.
    • Josh saying that he eats old men is referenced in The Runaway Guys, in a video that does not otherwise involve him.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: Just as Josh beat Bowser, Tyler on his half of the screen lost a life in Corona Mountain.

Super Mario Galaxy Versus

Luigi's Mansion Versus

Super Mario 64 Versus

Ocarina of Time Versus
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Averted, the different format has been generally well-received, especially with Tyler and Josh's justifications for it.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Josh is this in Part 14. The way he acts in the episode especially to Tyler who was winning (who lampshades this fact since he wasn't acting upset before) ...but then he dies to Twinrova and he way he just says "I got a Game Over..." sounds like his will to go on got shattered... and then Tyler starts gloating about it

Banjo Kazooie Versus
  • Base Breaker: Not actually in the versus itself, but related to it; in the comments of the Super Smash Bros. Melee - Classic Mode Versus, Josh posted a comment seemingly raging at the people who kept complaining about Banjo Kazooie Versus's lack of consistent updates, bringing up how he was trying to take a break and spend time with family. This caused several fans to reply, showing displeasure at him "showing [his] true colors" and referring to the complaining fans as "fucking annoying", saying that the fans were just curious and not trying to be annoying. Other fans replied with laughter, taking it all as a snarky joke (which makes sense coming from Josh, though obviously if it's a joke, it doesn't come across too well in text). Still more fans replied to those on either of the aforementioned sides, starting arguments about how the other side was true.

Sonic Adventure 2 Versus
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: During a particular level in episode 10, Tyler and Reese suddenly start playing the kazoo out of nowhere.

Super Luigi U Versus
  • Broken Base: Tyler's victory was soured by the fact that he missed a star coin in the final level, breaking one of the main rules they put in place. They talked about it later and decided the winner would get to keep his title, making the fans absolutely berserk, accusing the winner of cheating and breaking the rules. This even continued well into the loser's challenge, to the point " Tyler didn't win" was almost a Madness Mantra.

For the film:

  • Awesome Music: The whole soundtrack counts.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: A cop missing his right hand? Gruesome. Ordering the guy who cut it off to give it back? Moderately funny. Complaining when the hand he gets turns out to be a left hand? Hilarious.
  • Ho Yay: After shooting one of the other yakuza, the yakuza with the glasses (played by Kazuhito Ohba) gets a very suggestive hug from Kenji Matsuda's character. While Ohba's character was visibly disturbed over the shooting, Matsuda's was a notably uncaring character, mocking, shooting and slicing up their other companions for kicks. The tender way he speaks to Ohba at that point comes as quite a surprise to the viewer, who by then is more used to his sarcastically cold way of speaking.
  • So Bad It's Awesome: The movie is like this as far as its acting, plot, and setting go. The action scenes, however, are spectacular. Another hallmark of it being So Bad, It's Good is that the commentary features the director, the producer, and three of the actors, and they were probably all drunk when they recorded it. Japanese B movies seem to have an incredible ability to take a really silly premise, fill it with gore then play everything without a hint of irony.
  • Special Effect Failure: The film has a few scenes that fall under this trope, such as The Man's decapitation. Thankfully and fortunately rectified in The Ultimate Versus.
