** During his LetsPlay of ''[[VideoGame/{{Shinobi}} Revenge of Shinobi]]'' for the Hard Games Thread on Website/SomethingAwful, whenever he came across something particularly lawyer baiting, Slowbeef would claim to have an email from Sega's lawyer claiming that said something is not what it appears to be ripping off, such as the picture of Joe Musashi on the title screen not being Creator/SonnyChiba from Kage No Gundan or the flamethrower guys not being Franchise/{{Rambo}} (even if they had the license, he's bald in later versions), and the Round 4 boss not being either Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger or The ComicBook/IncredibleHulk even if he's a robot and turns green. Played with in two letters which apologizes for a poor representation of the state of Detroit, and another which asks people not to LetsPlay ''VideoGame/ShiningForce''. Averted when he fights Web-Bat, the boss of Round 6, where said letter claims it IS SpiderMan (Since Sega had the license to make Spidey games at the time.) but the guy he turns into is certainly not Franchise/{{Batman}} (And later revisions changed him to Manga/{{Devilman}} anyway.) and the dinosaur boss of Round 7 IS Franchise/{{Godzilla}} ("Fuck it, it IS Godzilla.")

** During his LetsPlay of ''[[VideoGame/{{Shinobi}} Revenge of Shinobi]]'' for the Hard Games Thread on Website/SomethingAwful, whenever he came across something particularly lawyer baiting, Slowbeef would claim to have an email from Sega's lawyer claiming that said something is not what it appears to be ripping off, such as the picture of Joe Musashi on the title screen not being Creator/SonnyChiba from Kage No Gundan or the flamethrower guys not being Franchise/{{Rambo}} (even if they had the license, he's bald in later versions), and the Round 4 boss not being either Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger or TheIncredibleHulk even if he's a robot and turns green. Played with in two letters which apologizes for a poor representation of the state of Detroit, and another which asks people not to LetsPlay ''VideoGame/ShiningForce''. Averted when he fights Web-Bat, the boss of Round 6, where said letter claims it IS SpiderMan (Since Sega had the license to make Spidey games at the time.) but the guy he turns into is certainly not Franchise/{{Batman}} (And later revisions changed him to Manga/{{Devilman}} anyway.) and the dinosaur boss of Round 7 IS Franchise/{{Godzilla}} ("Fuck it, it IS Godzilla.")

* OffscreenInertia: [[{{In-universe}} Slowbeef and Diabetus use]], as a RunningJoke, the idea that Ridley is still falling down the hole in which Samus fought him. Over a month later, when Samus fights Ridley again near the end of the game, they immediately conclude that Ridley ''just'' stopped falling, and the arena where she fights him just happens to be the end of the very, very long chute that Ridley's been falling down the entire game.

* OffscreenInertia: [[{{In-universe}} [[{{Inuniverse}} Slowbeef and Diabetus use]], as a RunningJoke, the idea that Ridley is still falling down the hole in which Samus fought him. Over a month later, when Samus fights Ridley again near the end of the game, they immediately conclude that Ridley ''just'' stopped falling, and the arena where she fights him just happens to be the end of the very, very long chute that Ridley's been falling down the entire game.


** During his LetsPlay of ''[[VideoGame/{{Shinobi}} Revenge of Shinobi]]'' for the Hard Games Thread on Website/SomethingAwful, whenever he came across something particularly lawyer baiting, Slowbeef would claim to have an email from Sega's lawyer claiming that said something is not what it appears to be ripping off, such as the picture of Joe Musashi on the title screen not being Creator/SonnyChiba from Kage No Gundan or the flamethrower guys not being {{Rambo}} (even if they had the license, he's bald in later versions), and the Round 4 boss not being either Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger or TheIncredibleHulk even if he's a robot and turns green. Played with in two letters which apologizes for a poor representation of the state of Detroit, and another which asks people not to LetsPlay ''VideoGame/ShiningForce''. Averted when he fights Web-Bat, the boss of Round 6, where said letter claims it IS SpiderMan (Since Sega had the license to make Spidey games at the time.) but the guy he turns into is certainly not Franchise/{{Batman}} (And later revisions changed him to Manga/{{Devilman}} anyway.) and the dinosaur boss of Round 7 IS Franchise/{{Godzilla}} ("Fuck it, it IS Godzilla.")

* BiasSteamroller: He'd freely admitted to having a bias against the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' games. This was ultimately undone after he played ''Subterranean Animism'' as one of his Patreon goals.
-->'''slowbeef:''' ''(after defeating [[ThatOneBoss Yuugi Hoshiguma]])'' Oh my God, that was '''''AWESOME!'''''' ...Alright, no. That did it, I'm turned around, ''Touhou'''s awesome.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When [[TheAce Vicas]] first made an appearance in a ''MetroidPrime'' video, he got slowbeef past a point he had spent about half the previous video being stuck at.
** In the first ''MetroidPrime'' video, slowbeef somehow gets stuck in ''one of the first rooms in the game.''

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the ''DeadToRights: Retribution'' LP, after arresting [[spoiler:Julian Temple]], Slowbeef remarks: "Grant City's under martial law, right? So what are we gonna do? Go to the police station, kill everyone in it, and throw him in an empty jail cell?" No points for guessing what happens in the very next chapter.

** Shadow in ''DeadToRights'', thanks to being a teleporting OneHitKill attack that steals the victim's weapon. slowbeef and Diabetus end up playing him up as even more badass and doing most of the work and thinking for Slate while he just bumbles around and shoots random henchman.
