** All the Sanics follows a similar structure, only it's one ''Act'' per video, which 4 videos in already resulted in a video that's less than two minutes long. He also starts the series by ''not'' playing a Sonic game, but instead spending the first two videos playing ''VideoGame/{{Flicky}}'' (since the title character became one of the generic animals Sonic rescues from destroyed Eggman robots, and thus technically counts as a "Game starring Sonic or a Sonic-adjacent character") and ''VideoGame/RadMobile'' (due to Sonic's EarlyBirdCameo in the game.)

Added DiffLines:

** All the [=MegaMen=] follows a strict "One stage per video" rule, no matter how short it'll make the video. At one point during ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' he counts the CutsceneBoss fight between Zero and Colonel as a stage, resulting in a video consisting of just a 2 minute-long cutscene.


** He's come out lately saying that he dislikes his old, intensely "[[WordSaladHumor monkey cheese]]" style of commentary and rampant SaveScumming in a lot of his pre and early-YouTube [=LPs=], saying that it cheapens his enjoyment of the game and that he won't go back to it no matter how many people tell him to.

* ExecutiveMeddling: In late March, 2011, Machinima went and privatised every raocow videos, save for 225 of his ~1600 videos to check for copyright infringement. Then it turns out that they [[WellIntentionedExtremist did it to protect them from YouTube's copyright-infringement rampage.]]

* OneOfUs: He has participated in discussions on this site, and is aware of the rather unusual situations we have set him up in.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOKWYOPhuTg In response to the question posed in your tags, raocow: yes.]]
** And in his Super Mario Bros. X LP all the titles of his videos are named after tropes.
** In non-Wiki/TVTropes-related affairs, he's a fan of ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', as evidenced by the theme naming of one of his ''VideoGame/{{Worms}} Armageddon'' teams in Pink's videos.
** Believe it or not, he watches Minecraft videos. Mainly peteyboo's [=LPs=], but he also likes things such as the Beetlejuice rollercoaster video.

Added DiffLines:

** He also caused spikes in popularity for some lesser-known games he LP'ed, such as ''VideoGame/CatPlanet'' and ''VideoGame/CopyKitty''.


* AccidentallyAccurate:
** During one chipmunked segment, he complains about [[ReplacementScrappy Bowser Jr.]] and likens the change to [[VideoGame/PaperMario replacing Kamek with an old lady]].
** Upon reaching a new chapter in [[VideoGame/{{Startropics}} Zoda's Revenge]], raocow compares the overworld to that of [[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the first TMNT game on NES]]. The HistoricalDomainCharacter for that chapter? Creator/LeonardoDaVinci.

* WordOfSaintPaul: A lot of information on his characters, particularly the demons, is given by what is essentially fanmade content. It is generally considered canon nontheless.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: {{Subverted}}. He considered doing an LP of ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]'', but never got around to it for a long time. The great proliferation of other [=LPs=] of the game may have been a factor. Eventually, though, he began a blind run once the hubbub died down.
