* DoingItForTheArt: While Scott openly admits that game making is a career he does for a living, ''VideoGame/FreddyFazbearsPizzeriaSimulator'' and ''VideoGame/UltimateCustomNight'' were done for the sole purpose of expanding the franchise. Scott feared to be seen as milking it for money so he decide to make it free.

* FriendlyRivalry: He and [[WebVideo/GameTheory Matpat]] had a bit of a thing going on, with Scott even telling him he was wrong and screwing with him on a few occasions such as confirming an old theory... on April Fool's Day. They're on friendly terms however, with Scott even congratulating Mat and his wife on their new baby. Scott even made a completely new game for Matt, Markiplier, and Dawko to play for a charity livestream, saying he would donate $500,000 if they found all the money in the game. They didnít, but Scott still donated the $500,000.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAvatar: His avatar is the man from "There Is No Pause Button", which Scott nicknamed Animdude on sites like Reddit.


** He is suffering a second one after the man's political donations came to light, upsetting his fanbase greatly, going so far as to [[DisproportionateRetribution find his address and send threats to him and his wife]]. In a post on Reddit, he refuses to apologize for his choices, but if the fandom wants to throw him out, then he'll happily retire.

* TeasingCreator: He manages to top this in 2017 with ''VideoGame/FreddyFazbearsPizzeriaSimulator''. After ''Five Nights At Freddy's 6'' had to be delayed numerous times, he released this as a fun sidegame for free, both to give the fans something to tide them over in the meantime, and so that he wouldn't go a whole year without releasing something. None of the game's teasers suggested that it was anything but what it was advertised as. As it turns out? This ''is'' the sixth game in the series, and the retro gameplay falls apart after a few minutes to reveal the game's true nature. The best part? He released this game ''for free'', meaning ''[[MagnificentBastard he made zero money off the game just for the sake of fooling everyone]]''!
