* CloudCuckooLander: Exemplified in ''Luigi's Mansion Versus'' episode 6, when he goes on a long string of talking about wanting to lie down and how candy corn and pixie sticks sound awesome right now...

* UnexpectedCharacter: Previous guests have shown to be good friends of both Tyler and Josh, but to the public, Jon hasn't interacted with them outside of The Runaway Guys projects (and, in Josh's case, their ''Tri Force Heroes'' playing with Tom Fawkes). Not to mention [[DeadpanSnarker his personality]] is vastly different from [[LargeHam the usual Versus fare]].

* NervesOfSteel: When Josh and Tyler have to eat habanero peppers as a donation challenge, they're reduced to screaming, passing a jug of milk back and forth, and - in Tyler's case - literally running around the room flailing his arms. Squill grabs a decently sized pepper, pops it in his mouth, and after a moment of no reaction, tells Tyler to "man up". Backfires on him when he later has to eat even more peppers and it starts getting to him.
