** Averted if you watch him on JAR media. He shows his face all the time.



* TheUnseen: Alex has taken great care to hide his real face, sometimes superimposing the Alex logo over his head. Two pics allegedly of Alex show him to be quite attractive (which led to plenty of romantic [=DeviantArt=] of him.) His hiding his identity is due to his desire for privacy. Recent videos had him showing his face in experimental videos he shot when he was in his teens. He's also shown his face on occasion on [[https://www.instagram.com/argythecorgi/ the Instagram he set up for his dog]].

* ElephantInTheLivingRoom: This is why he hates Website/YouTube Rewind 2016. While he doesn't mind the video rehashing the memes of the past year, he's disappointed how it overlooks the more significant moments of the year: Creator/TheFineBrothers attempting to trademark the "WebVideo/{{React}}" label; WebVideo/{{H3H3Productions}} being sued by Matt "Bold Guy" Hoss, leading to the creation of the Fair Use Protection Agency; and [=Youtube=] CEO Susan Wojcicki's misguided attempt to implement the self-policing Youtube Heroes program.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: In the Trying To Watch for ''Laserblast'', Alex mentions the pterodon attack in ''Film/JurassicPark3'' and Reuben comments that Alex knows his dinosaur names well. The problem is, "pterodon" is actually a type of plant, not a type of pterosaur (it's likely Alex was getting confused with the similarly-named pteranodon). Reuben also refers to the pteranodons as dinosaurs, which is incorrect as they are actually pterosaurs.

** ''Tangled Up'', rather than a Mockbuster of ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', was a couple of episodes of ''Britannica's Tales Around the World'', a collection of educational fairy tale shorts.

* CouchGag: At the beginning of every "I HATE" video, the first image is a warning that says "WARNING! SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH THIS IS MY OPINION. DON'T GET YOUR X IN A TWIST", where X represents a different word relevant to the topic of the video. For example, the word at the beginning of his "I HATE [[Disney/{{Frozen}} FROZEN]] is "snowman", and the word at the beginning of his "I HATE [[YouTube YOUTUBE]] video is "Sandstorm".

** His video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xg6KXAfCbE "Keemstar Is Going Down (Pewdipie & Leafy?)"]] opens with him crawling around on the floor while rambling about Keemstar and him going down. It doesn't get better from there.

* TitleDrop: Mentioned above, but he actually doesn't hate ''everything'', but his topics and subjects vary from a certain fandom to an entire website, so the word 'everything' is metaphorical than anything. But in his '5 EPIC Ways To Be a YouTube Celebrity! ✔' video, he does drop his [=YouTube=] name literally.

* NoNameGiven: IHE thus far has only revealed his first name, Alex, presumably due to the same privacy reasons behind hiding his face in his videos. There are other sources around the internet that list various vaguely similar-sounding surnames for him, and it could also reasonably be presumed that he shares his last name with his brother Jamie, but none of these surnames have ever been endorsed by Alex himself.
