  • Broken Base:
    • Between Minecraft fans and fans of the Yogscast in general. See Fan Dumb on the Yogscast Minecraft Series page.
    • The Minecon Clusterfuck is an example of just how bad a slight misunderstanding and some twittering can snowball into an enormous Broken Base. Seems to have all blown over now, though.
    • The whole argument with Gamechap and Bertie towards the end of 2013, in no small part owing to content that some viewers (mainly women and to a lesser extent ethnic minorities) deemed unacceptable.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Simon's comment after spilling his cup of tea in "Ampu-Tea":
    Simon: "Now I know how the Americans felt on 9/11."
  • Ear Worm: Nilesy's outro song. This is my outro song, so that the vid doesn't end too suddenly...
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: While every Yogscast video maker is someone's favourite, quite a few of the non-video makers are relatively popular too, such as Sam Gibbs the sound engineer, who got a lot of love in the 2013 livestream for doing a good job, being good at games and playing guitar well. He could also be one hell of a troll when he wanted to, particularly towards Parv.
    • Will has also picked up a lot of fans in a very short space of time, owing to his competence at Minecraft, decent tutorials that got to the point, and his awesomely deep voice.
  • Fan Dumb: The Yogscast's more extreme fans are noted for being extremely angry and irrational on occasion, to the point that the comments were disabled for two months on the main channel. This video revealed some of the comments that caused this. They're not entirely limited to their own videos either; fans of Achievement Hunter are annoyed by their claims that they copied the Yogscast, in spite of the fact that there is no beef between the two groups as a whole.
  • Forced Meme: "The horse is lovely!" note 
  • Ho Yay:
    • Lewis and Simon have their moments. Especially in MMORPG games where they are playing opposite sexes, like in Mists of Pandaria when Simon yelled at Lewis to take his clothes off (to show that the female pandas now had underwear), or in Archage where they were going to build a home together and raise cubs.

      It should be noted that the origin of the Simon and Lewis team originated from Simon being in Lewis's World of Warcraft guild as a female character, and Lewis attempting to... "win Honeydew's favor". Of course, while Lewis was initially disappointed by The Reveal, he got along with Simon anyway once he realized how funny he was.
    • Simon and BRIAN BLESSED here.
    • Not to mention Simon kissing Lewis when he cuts his lip. Please note Hannah's complete lack of reaction.
    • Lewis randomly gives Duncan a kiss.
    • Sjin. No matter who he's working with—whether it's Sips, Lewis, Simon, or Nilesy—he always manages to throw in some Ho Yay / Faux Yay.
    • When Martyn and Strippin play mini-golf, Strippin has an... interesting way of distracting his opponent.
      • Speaking of Strippin and competitors, he also managed to kiss Alsmiffy on the nose before the burger challenge (which they spoon each other afterwards in agony).
  • Internet Backdraft: Someone reported the main channel for being under 13. Somebody on YouTube immediately banned the channel, wiping all two thousand videos, causing this trope in SPADES.
    • The whole Gamechap and Bertie argument also fell into this, though admittedly Gamechap fanning the flames by calling the users of their subreddit idiots wasn't a smart move.
  • Iron Woobie: Zoey. Honestly, the fact that she's constantly happy and nice to everyone is a miracle, given how her early years went. In spite of all the bad experiences, she's probably one of the kindest people in the world, or at least the group.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Sips and Lewis towards the end of the second playthrough of Civilization 5: Brave New World. The former pays a weaker adversary to turn on Rythian, ensuring that the weaker adversary will be wiped out after doing as much damage to Rythian as possible, and the latter eventually invests his time in enough technology to curbstomp everybody in the world.
  • Memetic Mutation: "LOOKS FUCKING SHIT" and variations after an infamous Yogtrailers video where Simon yelled it out at the beginning of a trailer to lampshade how the Yogscast just tear apart trailers.
    • "Dear Yogscast, my (insert age of child here) son/daughter saw you swearing in their video and they (insert extreme overreaction)". Has led to several variations such as "thanks for making my autistic child chat with other people" and "thanks for teaching them swearing so I don't have to".
    • "RIP Parv" promptly became a meme after Simon and Lewis started pretending he was dead on a livestream. It became a Running Gag throughout the rest of December 2013. The chat mods tried making it a Discredited Meme, but the fans and the Yogscast no less were having none of it, and therefore it kept going.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Despite their jokes, some of the stories they tell during Halloween Spack-2-cular are actually pretty creepy.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Quite a few things happen every now and then, owing to the overlapping between channels. One of the funniest examples would have to be Sparkles* stumbling in for a livestream that he obviously wasn't intended to be in, while completely drunk, so much so that he has to be taken home after only one minute. One minute, and yet he managed to easily be one of the funniest things there- at least, before everybody ''else'' got drunk.
  • Rewatch Bonus: In the Magicka Let's Play with Total Biscuit, whenever Simon gets a staff that has a use, he sets it off constantly for no reason. At first you assume it's just one of the ways he's trolling the other two, but Lewis realizes very late into the game that the default keybind for it is the middle mouse button, which Simon uses as his Vent push-to-talk key. Every time he does it actually is an honest accident.
  • "Stop Having Fun" Guys: Lewis and Simon prefer to screw around in games rather than really play them, which stirs up some anger in fans who feel they don't show off the game very well. Some good examples are every time they cheat in a Minecraft adventure map, or the time they previewed DayZ (a slow-paced survival game) on a private server in which they were given guns and a sniper escort when they joined (turning it into a "wander around and occasionally shoot a zombie" game).
