*Youtube recommendations is recently infamously known for putting videos that are completely unrelated to the user's interest. Jokes like "You didn't search for this." or "Insert X year here: Let's recommend this to everyone." appear all the time in the comments.



* "Did [item] die?", where the video depicts some disastrous result, not necessarily affecting said item. Usually funnier if [[ComicallyMissingThePoint the item is not affected at all]]--such as a cable spool rolling down an escalator and people asking if the spool or the escalator died. Very common on FailBlog videos.

* Among the FightingGame [[UsefulNotes/FightingGameCommunity community]], "[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck]] [[HitboxDissonance wrong with that]] [[NWordPrivileges nigga]] [[HitboxDissonance hitbox]]?" This one is thanks to the long-running ''[[NonindicativeName homo-genius: a history of gay inventors]]'', [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL03A1BFDC75064F12 a series of videos]] (and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=homo-genius+a+history+of+gay+inventors many]]'' fan-made off-shoots) showing infamous (and [[HilarityEnsues quite hilarious]]) examples of fighting game stupidity and [[HitboxDissonance disjointed hitboxes]], [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers plus]] the occasional arcade SportsGame and [[FirstPersonShooter FPS]] oddity. (The first volume, featuring [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Alex]] [[GoombaStomp literally curbstomping]] Urien [[CurbStompBattle to death]], can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EF5h6WJAq4 here.]]) In particular, the line above comes from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vvibK5P6p8 Vol. #54,]] featuring a match from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters 2002'', where [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Ryo Sakazaki]] magically reels in [[VideoGame/FatalFury Billy Kane]] with his [[RapidFireFisticuffs Zanretsuken]] ''from halfway across the screen'' by miraculously snagging the ''very end'' of his [[SimpleStaff bo]]. The phrase pops up frequently on many more videos from the same series in some way or another.

** "How the hell does [[Manga/FairyTail Jellal]] keep popping up everywhere?!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Just like Justin Y, comments like this are common responses to the incredibly frequent appearance of two different users in the comment sections of numerous videos, especially {{Anime}}-related ones, them being [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLJXCRbGgV5dc-s7ye3LhmQ Just Some Guy with a Mustache]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3RIcfnBQinhnhKHCIEA16Q Just Some Guy without a Mustache]], with both having Jellal from Manga/FairyTail as avatars, one with [[BadassMustache a moustache]] and one without.[[/labelnote]]


* Editing the [[HolyShitQuotient jaw-droppingly]] [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome famous]] [[TheOner oner]] from Tony Jaa's ''Film/TomYumGoong''/''The Protector'' with sound clips from videos games. Kajmaster Kajet (best known as the progenitor of the infamous '''''[[Anime/DragonBallZ OVER]] [[PowerLevels 9000!!!]]''''', "[[Anime/DragonBallZ The balls are inert]]", and '''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam ZETA PUNCH]]''' [[MemeticMutation memes]]) [[FollowTheLeader did it first]] with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk0kufx74Io Terry Yum Goong]] (''VideoGame/FatalFury'''s [[TheHero Terry]] [[BoisterousBruiser Bogard]], with voices mainly from ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]''), but there have also been versions based on ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage'' ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JldcdLmOKHQ Streets of Goong]]), ''VideoGame/GodHand'' ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGD7MEJSf20 Gene Yum Goong]]), ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1oazz73z90 Scout Yum Goong]]), and ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHWPssIr0PA Dante Yum Goong]]).

* '''Unregistered [=HyperCam=] 2'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]The trial version of the popular screen capturing tool [=HyperCam=], since version 1 (back then, the watermark did not have the number 2 on it), had a white watermark on the top left corner of the video with this gem written on it, usually seen in the Windows System typeface. People who didn't want to pay for it, or didn't use a video editor with the ability to crop it out (such as the ever popular Sony Vegas) were stuck with this watermark on their videos. [=HyperCam=] 2 eventually became {{freeware}}, and removes the watermark, though HC 3 requires a registration fee for it or "Unregistered [=HyperCam=] 3" appears.[[/labelnote]]

* The X was a paid actor [[labelnote:Explanation]] A phrase said when someone shows off an amazing or impossible feat. However, it only is used on the inanimate objects in the video. If water is set on fire, then people would joke that the water was a paid actor.[[/labelnote]]
