** On another side chapter, Takashi utters "GUH!" while doing a DoubleTake at his father's growing pile of requests. It happens to be [[WebAnimation/{{Hololive}} Calliope Mori]]'s CatchPhrase.

Added DiffLines:

* {{GIRL}}: The manga's comedy is fueled by the notion of the cute VirtualCelebrity being played by an old man with a voice-changer, and the CringeComedy stems from seeing what happens on the other side of the stream. ''Every'' major [=VTuber=] has this trope running with them; Takashi's mother even is subject to accusations of this.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLadette: Takashi's mother tries to muscle in on her husband's territory but her behavior, especially when riled up, perpetuates an InUniverse RunningGag that she's actually a GuyInRealLife. It doesn't help that she has trouble shaking off her tomboyish background, and to rub salt in the wound, she fares a lot better at navigating a normal dating sim compared to an otome game.

Added DiffLines:

* BecomingTheMask: After accusing his father of being so into his [=VTuber=] personality that it's leaking into his real-life behavior, it's pointed out that Takashi himself is starting to do the same. The chapter even ends with the HeWhoFightsMonsters quote to drive the point home.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut:
** In a side chapter where Takashi's father spies on him reluctantly trying out his new [=VTuber=] avatar, the final panel bears close resemblance to the famed "Here's Johnny!" scene from ''Film/TheShining''.
** When Takashi's mother is, once again, accused of being an old man behind the screen, one of the comments scrolling across her feed reads "[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants How many times must we teach you this lesson, old man?]]"


* TechnologyMarchesOn: The manga and setting were written at a time where virtual [=YouTubers=] that used full motion capture like WebAnimation/KizunaAi were in vogue. While they haven't faded out of popularity as of the end of 2020, it's much more common to see less extensive motion capture like [=Live2D=] or [=Home3D=] as popularized by WebAnimation/{{Hololive}} or Creator/{{Nijisanji}} due to the lower barrier to entry.

Added DiffLines:

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: One of the chapters takes a breather from Takashi's family antics to focus on a side character who streams in the buff for personal excitement. Not that the internet knows this thanks to mocap technology.


* CringeComedy: Oh ''HELL YES''. A lot of the funny moments come from how Takashi has to deal with knowing that the idol he's been fawning over is actually a man, and his own father no less.

The embarrassment reaches new heights when Takashi gets roped into his father's shenanigans and ends up debuting as a [=VTuber=] too!

!!''My Dad's the Queen of All [=VTubers=]!?'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AwfulTruth: Takashi finding out that the VirtualCelebrity he's been fawning and worshiping turns out to be an old man behind the scenes. Even worse, it's ''his own father.''
* BloodFromTheMouth: PlayedForLaughs, with Takashi frequently vomiting blood as he cringes over the fact that he's been worshiping and fawning over his own dad.
* BrainBleach: Ever since finding out the AwfulTruth, Takashi can only see his father's face when he sees images of Kizuke Yai.
-->'''Takashi:''' "Until that day... When I came to know about [=VTubing=] by chance... I had opened the doors to a world I never knew. The scene has changed before my eyes. ''I can't go back to the time before I knew all of this.''"
* CringeComedy: Oh ''HELL YES''. A lot of the funny moments come from how Takashi has to deal with knowing that the idol he's been fawning over is actually a man, and his own father no less.
* DeconstructiveParody: This manga examines the life of a [=VTuber=] and how they work.
** Since [=VTubers=] are ultimately virtual avatars, there's really no way to tell who the person playing the character really is. And thanks to voice changing technology, it may even be [[{{GIRL}} someone of the opposite gender.]]
** [[WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}} Not everyone can be a successful [=VTuber=], but a successful [=VTuber=] can come from anywhere.]] In this story, we have Takashi's father who plays the most successful [=VTuber=] in the nation, through a combination of charm, acting, and knowing what the audience likes. Meanwhile, the mother desperately wants to be a successful [=VTuber=], even if only a little bit, but constantly fails due to lacking in the necessary charms to draw in the right audience and is often thought to be an old man behind the scenes.
** SexSells. There's often an element of {{Fanservice}} in [=VTubers=] (and idol business in general), and tapping into it can be... lucrative.
