* Johnny beating [[ThatOneBoss notorious]] bosses in VideoGame/KingdomHearts ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' ''very'' quickly... on ''proud mode''[[note]]In which you are capped to Level 1[[/note]].



* Johnny shows a great level of self-awareness and personal growth in his review of ''VideoGame/PokemonLetsGoPikachuAndLetsGoEevee''. As he reflects on his old review of ''Gold and Silver'', he notes that his quip about Bugsy's androgynous appearance could be seen as transphobic, and apologises for it.

* Elliot evidently TookALevelInBadass in New Super Mario Bros. U, especially noticeable since it took him until the final World to get a Game Over considering his usual luck in previous Mario Games.
** Elliot got the most hits on AND beat Bowser (in both phases of the battle).
* In an offscreen effort in the LA Noire Playthrough, between the Vice and Arson Desks, Elliot's [=PS3=] dies. He spends the interim getting back up to Arson Desk ''from scratch''.
* Elliot actually reaching the Chaos Emeralds first a few times during his LP with Johnny in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' multiplayer mode.
* Johnny beats Dark Link legitimately in Zelda II.
* Johnny's epic come from behind win in the Dragon Mines during their second Crash Team Racing episode.

[[Awesome/SuperGamingBros here]].



* Johnny fighting William for the second time in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' and gets brutalized by him with a 4 slash combo, only to discover that Leon's health hasn't even changed ''at all''. Leon took the blows like a boss and the group concluded that the extra defense was in the pants.
* Elliot did a perfect run against [[VideoGame/SlyCooperAndTheThieviusRaccoonus Mz. Ruby.]]
* Mark won Western Land in Mario Party 2 in a very close finish.
* Elliot's run to stage 3 of Slender: The Arrival
** Heck, even beating stage 2 (the original level from the original slender). was practically a middle finger to [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] after last year's carnage!
* Johnny fighting Gary Oak's Charizard with his Tauros in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue''. Tauros uses Blizzard and ''freezes Charizard in ice!''
--> '''Matt''': You froze the fire dragon!
* At the end of their Sonic marathon, during the boss rush of Sonic 4: Episode 1, John has trouble with the Lost Labyrinth boss. In a moment of frustration and amusement, John hands Elliot the controller. What does Elliot do? Take advantage of the boss's own moveset and beats not just the Lost Labyrinth boss but the Mad Gear Boss.
---> '''John''' (after the Lost Labyrinth boss): Elliot, I bow down. I seriously do.
---> '''John''' (after the Mad Gear boss): What? What! (Edited in Slowmotion replay) Elliot, what hacking are you programming into the game?!
* Elliot winning in Mario Party 3 after a VERY close game!
* The preview images for the finale episodes of Band of Thieves, showing the job complete poses.
* Elliot: The guy who is infamous for such feats as dying on [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros WORLD 1-1]], managed to beat ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' with only ''A SINGLE DEATH''. Made even more impressive by the fact that Elliot was able to work with a strategy of checking the lights and then looking at the camera in Pirate Cove to basically prevent Foxy from ever moving, as well as preventing himself from being caught!



* A moment for Presea during the last boss of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''[='=]s bonus dungeon where she goes toe-to-toe with [[spoiler: the memory Mithos]], taking half his health bar all on her own before Lloyd can finish off the other two opponents and help her out. During the video, you can often spot her and her foe in the background as Matt takes care of the others.



* Elliot once again winning ''Mario Party 10'' with a come from behind victory to beat out Matt and Johnny both by 1 star!
* During the ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' (Team Rose) LP, during the second Emerald Special Stage, everyone breaks into an impromptu acapella rendition of the Sonic 2 Special Stage theme. It's actually rather fitting.
** Also during the Team Rose LP, Elliot beats the Egg Albatross, by repeatedly and recklessly spamming the homing attack. ''Right over a chasm.'' Given the physics of Sonic Heroes and the fact that one hit from a stray projectile would knock him into the chasm, this could have blown up quite spectacularly in his face, but he came out on top with an A-rank for the boss!
* In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse'' Johnny comes close to falling off a collapsing bridge, but winds up jumping on the collapsing pieces while they're in midfall the entire time, successfully making it to the end of the bridge without dying.



* After five long slogs through the levels of ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' (and five more offscreen to unlock the Last Story), Johnny successfully pulls off the [[GoodBadBugs Chaos Control glitch]] to skip the ''entirety'' of The Last Way.
* Merely on the looks of it; but when Matt got lucky and pulled off a drive form against Lexaeus, he used Sonic Rave unintentionally driving Sora through Lexaeus's rock pillars and dealing damage.
* Throughout the course of the Super Mario Maker LP, both Elliot and Matt claimed World Record times for various courses. As of the end of Elliot's run, he's claimed two records, while Matt, as of Part 6, has claimed one.
* In ''VideoGame/SpiderManTheMovie'' Johnny is completing the stealth based mission involving sabotaging OSCORP's research on chemical weapons. After being chased by the security bots and reduced down to a sliver of his health, Johnny gets into a room full of lasers. He zip-lines to the ceiling, only to find that the ceiling has a very tight grid of lasers on it too. Had Johnny been an inch or two off to either side, he would have set off the security alarm again, and most likely gotten killed.
* Matt getting the maximum rank and earning Goofy's best shield from Mushroom #8, the notoriously difficult mushroom.
* Johnny ''beating'' ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' is a crowning moment to his NES career -- due to its memetic difficulty factor!
* Matt defeating the onslaught of Metal Gear Rays with only a tiny sliver of health left near the end of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty''.
* Overlapping with SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}, Johnny clears [[VideoGame/CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy Stormy Ascent]] in a way that [[https://youtu.be/jXnEKkQYYNM?t=13m19s must be seen to be believed]]
* After 7 years living with his notorious [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot3Warped Crash 3]] playthrough, Elliot handled the [[VideoGame/CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy N. Sane Trilogy]] version extremely well, with many viewers, Johnny, and Matt all feeling he has redeemed himself with this 2nd playthrough. There were no utterings of "Elliot, Seriously" at ''all''.
** Even better, a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=be67iMc7f5o death montage]] of all three playthroughs shows that [[spoiler:Elliot ''even got the '''least''' deaths of all three of them!'']]
** One standout moment from Elliot is his complete [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomping]] of ''Hog Ride'', one of the motorcycle levels. It was completed without a single restart, ''with both the gem and the crystal at the same time'', prompting the inclusion of a triumphant seven "[[MemeticMutation woah]]"s.
** The name of the final part of the ''N Sane Trilogy'' playthrough said it best: [[Film/{{Babe}} Elliot, That'll Do]]



* In the [=PS4=] Remaster of ''VideoGame/LANoire'', [[DrivesLikeCrazy Elliot]] somehow proved that [[ItMakesSenseInContext his backwards driving is way safer than his front driving]]
* During the Tetris 99 edition of Smackdown Sunday, Elliot went first and managed to finish in the TOP 10!!! The other 3 (Matt, Sabrina, and Johnny) didn't even break the top 50, with Matt coming the closest at 53.
* Also a funny moment, but during the ''Sly 4'' LP, Johnny suddenly bursts into a brief, impromptu recital of "Ice Ice Baby"... with his Bentley voice. He does a great job maintaining it before he finally gives in to his laughter.


* It's awesome enough that Johnny got Creator/MikePollock to join his ''Super Sonic Super Stream & Knuckles'' charity marathon as a guest commentator, but the two of them even enacted a scene from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'' together with Johnny using his [[Franchise/SlyCooper Bentley]] voice!
