YMMV / YouTube Poop

  • Accidental Nightmare Fuel: The ending of Jon's Dilemma on Cookies.
  • Americans Hate Tingle: Some poopers have attempted to upload poops to Nico Nico Douga, with no success whatsoever. This also goes for the iconic poop sources, despite most of them being based off of Japanese properties (Sonic, Zelda, Mario; etc.)
  • Awesome Music: Has its own page of YTPMVs.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: EVERY one of them has these. It even has its own page.
  • Base Breaker:
    • 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 Actually Pretty Funny 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 Seinfeld Is Unfunny 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 Myth Arc or even just a Random Events Plot, 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 True Art Is Incomprehensible 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 You Tube Poops 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 Dada. Others keep up the nonsense and prefer to amuse with it, taking it into Surreal Humor 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 In-Name-Only versions of themselves.
  • 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 Self-Imposed Challenge.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The more vulgar and/or violent varieties of YTP often apply this. This YTP, where the king starts shooting people over what to have for dinner, is be an obvious example.
  • Discredited Meme:
    • Many older Poopers view the CD-I and video game cartoons — as well as various memes — as overused. Gratuitous usage of Hotel Mario 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 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 Snark Bait.
  • Dork Age: 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 
  • Fandom Rivalry
  • 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 Hotel Mario 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".
  • Franchise Original Sin: It began as a form of trolling, and it formed largely around confusing and annoying viewers. By 2009, when the genre became 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-Genre-Killer, trolling has been reduced to lighthearted jabs made for benign amusement.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
  • Gateway Series: 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.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff:
  • Growing the Beard: Common. For example, compare this poop with this poop, created nearly two years later; the latter features some of the best sentence mixing this side of Walrusguy and it replaces the excessive "Mah boi" jokes with a plotnote .
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In No Swearing, ThePlamzJoker's meta-licious entry for The Clean 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 DaThings1's entry, The OUTing, was all about a teacher murdering her students.
    • A scene in AwfulFawful's Friendship equals Magic x Ponies^2 has Scootaloo eating what looks like a Krabby Patty. Jump ahead to nearly 2 years later with the episode 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 joke made at Roy becoming angry at Lucina for stealing his spot. He makes a threat that he'll come back as DLC and destroy her. That's exactly what happened, though minus the destroying her part.
  • Love It or Hate It There doesn't seem to be much of an in-between area.
  • Memetic Molester: Thanks to Youtube Poop, Dr. Rabbit is one.
  • Nausea Fuel: Michael Rosen pooper WonkyTonkBotty LOVES these tropes:
  • The Scrappy: 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.
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: 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.
  • “Stop Having Fun” Guys: 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.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: The less you know what's going on, the more you'll enjoy the videos.
  • Watch It for the Meme: Some call it worth watching because of how preposterous it is.
