* AccidentalNightmareFuel: The ending of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XQQshDhPU8 Jon's Dilemma on Cookies]].
* AmericansHateTingle: Some poopers have attempted to upload poops to NicoNicoDouga, with no success whatsoever. This also goes for the iconic poop sources, despite most of them being based off of Japanese properties ([[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Sonic]], [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames Zelda]], [[VideoGame/HotelMario Mario]]; etc.)
* AwesomeMusic: [[AwesomeMusic/YouTubePoop Has its own page of YTPMVs]].
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: ''EVERY'' one of them has these. It even has [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment/YouTubePoop its own page]].
* BrokenBase:
** Ear Rape being used in poops. It was originally regarded a staple in [=YTPs=], but nowadays, opinions divide between whether it's annoying and a tell-tale sign of a Spaghetti-Dinner poop or ActuallyPrettyFunny and most poopers just don't know how to use it properly.
** Spaghetti-Dinner poops themselves. For some, they can be funny if done right, but to others they're a form of SeinfeldIsUnfunny or simply overdone. There's also a third camp who say that they can be done right, but it either takes quite a bit of effort or has to done in a way different from all the others.
** Making sense vs not making sense. Making sense can mean many things, whether it be a plot with a MythArc or even just a RandomEventsPlot, and tell a story of some sort with it. It may also feature characters behaving in logical ways, whether all of them or just one or two. On the other end we reach TrueArtIsIncomprehensible territory, where there is no basic sense in it at all, and no plot at all. Which is preferred varies from pooper to pooper, with some trying to make arcs within their YouTubePoops and apply tropes to characters they use, and others simply aiming for as much nonsense as possible. It's a sliding scale for where each pooper lies, but there's no agreement which is better, and where it should be.
** What defines [=YouTube=] Poop as a medium is also an issue of debate, and what it should mean as a whole. This especially applies to those who started from the beginning, where its overall aim was to drag users to something that made no sense, and just confused and frustrated viewers looking for other videos, as a form of UsefulNotes/{{Dada}}. Others keep up the nonsense and prefer to amuse with it, taking it into SurrealHumor territory. A third don't enjoy being too nonsensical, but will still amuse with the basics of editing the videos to entertain, especially with characters being InNameOnly versions of themselves.
* [[ComplacentGamingSyndrome Complacent Pooping Syndrome]]:
** Nearly everyone uses Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere, as they are capable of doing anything within the average pooper's abilities and imagination.
** Back in the early days of pooping, Windows Movie Maker was the default choice, as it was instantly available to anyone with a Windows computer, and the genre was still primitive enough that WMM poops were still considered satisfactory. Now, continuing to use WMM, when it's vastly overshadowed by the aforementioned video editors, is akin to a SelfImposedChallenge.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The more vulgar and/or violent varieties of YTP often apply this. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cABkgE56mEI This]] YTP, where the king [[DisproportionateRetribution starts shooting people over what to have for dinner]], is be an obvious example.
** A series of examples worthy of note is [=WonkyTonkBotty=]'s Creator/MichaelRosen poops, detailed in NauseaFuel[=/=]{{Squick}}.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JbPh3lc5Xg Michael Rosen watches]] the naked skateboarding scene from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'' and likes it. A lot.
* DiscreditedMeme:
** Many older Poopers view the CD-I and video game cartoons -- as well as various {{meme|ticMutation}}s -- as overused. Gratuitous usage of ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' and the CD-I Zeldas, or other memes that are seen as played out is derided by some as "spadinner". However, if used right, it can actually be [[Main/CrossestheLineTwice even funnier]].
** Using Windows Movie Maker as the medium for making such videos due to the lack of features and effects other programs such as Adobe Premiere and Sony Vegas have. It's certainly not ''impossible'' to make a good Poop with WMM, but for some viewers, a lack of effects may be seen as boring.
** There's also the opinion that proclaiming in a video's title or description that it's a Poop defeats the entire purpose of Pooping: subversion.
** Even "joj" and "sus" are starting to become this, though this is mostly due to being overused by some video makers and losing its humor factor as a result. While a typical video can get away with a few sus jokes, videos centered entirely around them tend to be SnarkBait.
* DorkAge: The entire medium went through one with the newbie boom in 2007 and 2008. With the influx of new poopers combined with a lack of innovation, the same sources and editing styles were regurgitated to the point where it would cause a backlash within the community, known as the War on AIDS. While the poop community has evolved beyond this point, the fallout can ''still'' be felt, as can be seen with any discussion related to "spadinner."[[note]]This mainly applies to the mainstream community; Youchew is now fully accepting of any kind of poop or source.[[/note]]
* FandomRivalry
** A member (or several) of the WebVideo/BarneyBunch attempted to invoke this by saying that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M68ogXU9CeE Youtube Poop will be replaced]] by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4QxFm-aeqw Youtube Touch]]. While the intent was likely to {{troll}} the community, it ultimately backfired [[BullyingADragon as it made the instigator(s) look like idiots for claiming that they alone could overthrow an entire movement]]. Otherwise, this is an aversion, as Youtube Poop and the Barney Bunch share [[VulgarHumor similar tastes in humor]] (with the latter being more extreme on-average).
** Played straight with Youtube Poop and MLG Montages, which are video remixing genres with different origins and intentions. Making an MLG-related post on Youchew will incite unanimously negative or flippant responses.
* {{Fanon}}: Some concepts not present in the source material have transcended the videos they originated from to become commonly accepted in almost any poop.
** Hyrule's royal family living in Ludwig's Castle Hotel from VideoGame/HotelMario is one example. Some Poopers change the name on the castle or remove it, but others, even a few who use Sony Vegas and easily could, leave the name intact.
** King Harkinian's "Munf Munf" cereal is another that has transcended to become fanon, as well as his "Dinner Blaster".
* FranchiseOriginalSin: It began as a form of {{troll}}ing, and it formed largely around confusing and annoying viewers. By 2009, when the genre became [[ItsPopularSoItSucks familiar]], trolls - mainly [=MeiAIDS=] - would ramp up their trolling with increasingly outlandish stunts, ranging from making trap videos to hacking thumbnails. This all boiled over in 2010 with the DMCA Crisis, when trolls took advantage of the ease of flagging videos, and take down videos and even entire channels. After this near-GenreKiller, trolling has been reduced to lighthearted jabs made for [[ItAmusedMe benign amusement]].
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lthpiHT7ggA Mako Explores His Sexuality]], Amon announces over the radio that he'll call upon Obama to shut down the government...a year before the actual shutdown!
** The very title of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}} [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWDeOqifLIk commits suicide]]'' after what happened to Creator/RobinWilliams.
* GatewaySeries: Some Poopers intentionally go out of their way to avoid using popular sources, and this can lead to fans looking up the originals.
** Even the CD-I games and Dr. Rabbit were pretty obscure before Youtube Poop came along.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** There is a thriving scene of Russian Youtube Poop.
** Same with Poops in Spanish.
** The Finnish ones (SinäTuubaPaska or occassionally SinäPutkiKakka)[[note]]Literal Translations: YouTubaShit and YouTubePoop[[/note]] are also very popular.
* GrowingTheBeard: Common. For example, compare [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23UgiqjIlUg&feature=BFa&list=ULOaIb9jx5Y8k this poop]] with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znM_CwLv9Dw&list=UUAM2guZFXeHX1oYFXYPO26w this poop, created nearly two years later]]; the latter features some of the best sentence mixing this side of WebAnimation/{{Walrusguy}} and it replaces the excessive "Mah boi" jokes with a plot[[note]]At least, a pretty high tier plot for a YTP that wasn't made by Walrusguy[[/note]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z54KLCkdUO0 No Swearing]], [=ThePlamzJoker=]'s meta-licious entry for The Clean [[Creator/MichaelRosen Rosen]] Collab, Michael realizes he violated the collab's family-friendliness rules after he murders the man telling him to stop swearing. What makes this funny was that Creator/DaThings1's entry, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phN2mz1qRqs The OUTing]], was ''all about'' a teacher murdering her students.
** A scene in [=AwfulFawful=]'s ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBULa6RUa-c Friendship equals Magic x Ponies^2]]'' has [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Scootaloo]] eating what looks like a [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarepants Krabby Patty]]. Jump ahead to nearly 2 years later with the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E15TwilightTime Twilight Time]], where burgers do exist in Equestria, made from hay of course, and Twilight Sparkle binge-eats on several hay burgers.
** In ''Master Hand writes some kind of erotic Smash Bros. fan fiction.'' there is a [[https://youtu.be/qoGgulvQ3mA?t=4m12s joke made]] at Roy becoming angry at Lucina for stealing his spot. He makes a threat that he'll come back as [[DownloadableContent DLC]] and destroy her. That's exactly what happened, though minus the destroying her part.
* LoveItOrHateIt There doesn't seem to be much of an in-between area.
* MemeticMolester: Thanks to Youtube Poop, Dr. Rabbit is one.
* NauseaFuel: Creator/MichaelRosen pooper [=WonkyTonkBotty=] LOVES these tropes:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC4RVaR2ovQ Michael Rosen screws Harrybo's dead grandad & 2 year old sister]], in addition to ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, contains Michael eating feces and his dad's scrotum, having violent farts, and breathing in his mother's queef.
** In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SewPn04O9Tg Michael Rosen becomes a Gynecologist]], the titular event causes Michael to inspect [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark the Queef Sisters]] and [[ILoveTheDead rape the maggot-infested vagina of Harrybo's long-dead grandmother]] while [[Music/BloodhoundGang Bad Touch]] plays in the background, giving him chlamydia [[ArtisticLicenseBiology that he dies from]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppTnrKcuAO8 Michael Rosen and Family go to Brokeback Mountain]] features him, his father, and his brother getting into a homosexual incest orgy. His mother then interrupts by stringing Michael from the wallbars, raping him, and [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark shoving a rat up his anus]].
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aOw5VZvfF4 Michael's Big Plan to Take Over the World of Cartoons, part 1]] continues the trend by having Michael [[VomitIndiscretionShot graphically vomit]] over the infamous ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "The Splinter", anally ride an active wind-turbine whilst defecating and [[RunningGag yet again]] rape Harrybo's grandad ('''[[SerialEscalation even more graphically than last time]]''')
** Danielle Pluzsik's poop [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qaw7wcGXP1A Invader Zim Develops a Phobia of AIDs]] exposes us to creepy unlicensed flash games based on Music/JustinBieber and ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', dealing with such gross subject matter as ear infections and brain surgery respectively. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Yes, they do exist.]] [[YouHaveBeenWarned Do not look them up.]]
* TheScrappy: Youtube Video Editor, due to its lack of capabilities in contrast to the more commonly used video editors. It's treated with greater disdain than Windows Movie Maker, which is at least respected as the default editor before Sony Vegas, and is blacklisted by most collabs.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Older-generation poops can be seen as this, particularly those that use what are now considered overused sources or memes. Repeated usage of "Mah boi", "Gay Luigi", etc. is now so old-hat that even most amateur poopers don't go for them anymore.
* StopHavingFunGuys: Those who hold the copyrights for the material used. Justified, as it is copyright infringement, but most think YPT:s are a form of parody, and thus should be allowed. Well known examples:
** Most Finnish {{Moomin}} poops have a tendency to disappear quickly after being uploaded, often under 2 months. It's commonly joked that a channel becomes valid only after ''Moomin characters OY LTD'' bans the user for using their material.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: The less you know what's going on, the more you'll enjoy the videos.
* WatchItForTheMeme: Some call it worth watching because of how preposterous it is.
