* BigBad: The ambiguous nature of the videos make it hard to tell, but both halves seem to feature an antagonist of some sort. In the first half of the series, it is implied that [[spoiler:Alan is being abused/exploited by someone]], but who is never directly revealed. In the second half, the antagonist is [[spoiler:whoever it was that kidnapped Alan, assuming they are not trying to cure him]].

Added DiffLines:

* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Alan eventually gets locked up in a room alone for months, and during this situation his videos, words and actions become more erratic and chaotic, until he's trapped in a filthy prison of his own design and can only say "tutorial".


* CatchPhrase: "Hey [=YouTube=]!", "Hey tutorialheads!", "My name is Alantutorial!" and later on a simple "tutorial".
** "Don't forget to comment and subscribe", usually with some sort of variation, like Alan promising that you can "like it" (the video) or that, if you do subscribe, you can add a picture of yourself to his Bluetooth page.
* [[CloudCuckooLander Cloudcuckoolander]]: Even excluding the topics of his tutorials [[spoiler:and his eventual [[SanitySlippage sanity slippage]]]], Alan's apparent obsession with tutorials is enough to qualify. [[spoiler:Helps that the real Alan Resnick is ostensibly one as well, just a more self-aware one.]]

** The blue chair may be one. Though Alan never talks to it, he expresses great distress when it's lying on the floor, as evidenced in the page quote. It also shows up a few times later [[spoiler:when Alan is out in the forest]].
* CoolShades: Apparently worn in Alan's tutorial on [[SmokingIsCool how to smoke]]. Though the only reason we know that he was even wearing them is that ''they fall off and hit the floor'' when he leans over.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Alan's voice sounds notably different in his first few tutorials, especially so in the very first one. Additionally, he adds annotations and there's the occasional glitch in his videos.
* EasterEgg: In Alan's tutorial on elephant glue, the blue paper he uses to wipe his hand off is [[spoiler: the script to ''Live Forever As You Are Now'', another project by Resnick that was made for Adult Swim. Interestingly, ''Live Forever'' aired roughly a year after the elephant glue tutorial was uploaded]].

* ManChild: With the way Alan acts, he comes off as this quite often.

* MindScrew: The first several episodes can be explained away by Alan just being eccentric, but when the status quo starts to change things make less and less sense.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Alan is pretty excited to receive two dollars. [[spoiler:Granted, at that point, Alan is locked away in the white room with nothing to his name but a gown, a pillow, a table, piss bottles, and whatever is given to him to create tutorials]].
* NoDialogueEpisode: One early episode has Alan not speaking, claiming in the title and comments that his mic is broken- despite that the audience can hear noises in the background.
* NonSequitur: Alan's statements commonly jump from one topic to another. In the case of his tutorials, he often includes objects that ordinarily bear little relevance to what he is attempting to achieve, like a buzzsaw to make guacamole.

* OminousKnocking: Played with, where one early video shows that something is very ''wrong'' in Alan's house when he's doing a paper-airplane tutorial, and we hear someone repeatedly banging at his door as he insists for them to stop so he can make his tutorial. However, it's not the knocking ''itself'' causing the scene to feel wrong...it's the fact that, due to the camera shaking as the knocking occurs, it's made very clear that it's Alan ''himself'' stomping on the ground to make the audience ''think'' someone is at his door.

* {{Postmodernism}}: [[spoiler: The exact meaning of the series is never actually explained, but through several [[CrypticBackgroundReference clues in the background and through alantutorial's Twitter account,]] a common interpretation about the series is that [[MetaFiction it's a microcosm of a typical cycle of an internet celebrity or even artists in general]]; explaining how something one would do for their own enjoyment ends up being exploited by others in adult situations the childlike, naive creator can't understand, eventually leading to their ruinous breakdown.]]
* RevealingContinuityLapse: Early in the series, Alan tried to show his viewers how to pick up a blue chair, only to fail because it was making him too emotional. He was later forced from his house, including the chair. The chair would later appear during his time lost in the wilderness despite this, due to its significance to Alan's life.
* SanitySlippage: '''And how.''' Alan already comes off as a [[CloudCuckooLander Cloudcuckoolander]] from the start, [[spoiler: but his tutorials become progressively less coherent as the series goes on. He also seems to become less focused, losing his train of thought increasingly frequently and either stuttering or turning his attention to something else]].
** [[spoiler: His voice in earlier tutorials is more relaxed and even deeper in tone, but quickly takes on a higher pitch and and a more frantic tone]].
* SerialEscalation: The series goes from a bumbling, seemingly tutorial-obsessed man making tutorials and asking for likes and subscriptions in what seems to be a parody of typical [=YouTube=] tutorials. Things go downhill when Alan is locked out of his room, creating tutorials that make even less sense than before, and [[spoiler: seems to live in recluse in the woods before being kidnapped and stuck into a small white room by an unknown person...
