** Though he has adapted jokes borrowed from big name reviewers on a few occasions, including Nostlgia Critic's [[Film/SuburbanCommando I WAS FROZEN TODAY!]] which he specifically used before his short coverage of [[{{Disney/Frozen}} Frozen]] (featuring a Yellow [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Spy]] who said [[{{Series/Montypythonsflyingcircus}} Nobody expects]] [[Website/TheEscapist the yellow team!]] as he backstabs Mattwo with a spysicle), so he wouldn't have to bring it up again in the review.

* {{BLAM}}: [[invoked]] Mattwo considered Call Upon The Seaponies in his Midnight Castle review to be nearly identical to the trope namer, pointing out that when they later "called upon the seaponies", they broke [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse one of the criteria]] for it to be an actual BLAM, thus averting the trope outright.

* ActingForTwo: While most reviewers do this by splicing together footage or punching at another shot, in this show's case, all of the characters are voiced by Mattwo's storywriter(including a representation of himself as a Metropolice wearing a suit and necktie), though in the case of canon characters, especially female ones, this doesn't usually work very well....



* FollowTheLeader: While Mattwo's storywriter has been inspired to do reviews by the small amounts of review shows he has seen such as Toku Time, Jesuotaku, Nostalgia Critic, and mostly Linkara, it wasn't until he saw [=ZeltraxMillennium=]'s reviews using UsefulNotes/MikuMikuDance that he decided to do reviews, as he didn't really have a camera. However, he had no idea that South Jersey Sam had already been doing reviews with a gmod avatar.
** His idea to use "Falz" as a self-censorship came from [[Creator/EZRider EZ Rider]]'s "What The Faiz?!", Falz was literally just one letter away, and he reasoned it'd make more sense for [[VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline Dark Falz]]'s name to be a curse word than a heroic Kamen Rider's, being that Dark Falz is basically the devil.
** Parodied with the audition rejects, who were all rip-offs of other reviewers aside from The Cartoon Hero and "Manperson" who was a purple robocop and a rip-off of Series/TokusouRoboJanperson (and doubled as a reference to the fact that Robocop was inspired by the Franchise/MetalHeroes franchise). One of his rejects was even a character in the vein of That Guy With The Glasses and That Guy In The Hat, who was created solely as a throwaway joke character.
** The stinger of the review even took the joke to it's logical extreme with [[OverlyLongName The Ace Digi Zeltrax EZ Angry Irate Happy Suave Guy in the Glasses, in the Hat, in the Shades, in the Mask, in the Cape, in the Suede, Peanut Gamer Over Nerd Joetron Brony Millennium Riderthinker Vangelus 3.0]]



* NoBudget: Lampshaded as a HandWave to explain why the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestrian]] ''Wind''igos that appeared before Mattwo and the Ace Wings looked like [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Azerothian]] ''Wend''igos.
--> '''Mattwo:''' Budget restrictions.
--> '''Cloud Ace:''' What budget?
--> '''Mattwo:''' Exactly!



* RealSongThemeTune:
** Season 1: The show didn't actually have a theme song.
** Haunted Reviews: [[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland It's terror time again]]
** Xmas Reviews: Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee (After being frustrated with the removal of the Alpha's Magical Christmas review, not wanting to wait for the DMCA dispute to go through, Mattwo's Storywriter created [[https://youtu.be/GTmaD53SNQ4?t=113 a "special edit"]] of the review, making his feelings towards UMG perfectly clear (in defiance of UMG, who DMCA claimed at least two of these reviews after rejecting the content ID dispute appeals [[https://www.eff.org/issues/intellectual-property/guide-to-youtube-removals#content-id as per the standard YouTube copyright system]]) in subsequent years since using it).
** Season 2: "Flutterwonder" by [=PinkiePieSwear=]
** Season 3: "I'll Face Myself(Instrumental)" from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
** Season 4: "Overdrive" by Ron Wasserman from Series/PowerRangersZeo.
** Year 3: "Sky's The Limit" from [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation Persona 4: The Animation]].
** MURICA Reviews: '''AMERICA F**K YEA!'''
** Year 4: Pursuing My True Self from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
** Story Arc 2: Time to Say Goodbye from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' Season 2.

Added DiffLines:

* HandWave: Mattwo tried to use [[NoBudget a lack of funds]] to explain why the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestrian]] ''Wind''igos that appeared before Mattwo and the Ace Wings looked like [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Azerothian]] ''Wend''igos. [[RuleOfFunny It was actually just for the sake of leading up to a joke]], though the NoBudget part of the joke actually stemmed from the fact that Mattwo couldn't get World of Warcraft Model Viewer working at the time and used a stock image of them instead that could have easily been replaced with a stock image of the Windigos. Needless to say, the final version of the joke could have used some work.

** Mattwo's storywriter considers some of the criticisms in the first three reviews to be more harsh than he realized at the time. This might be rectified in a future review.

** Mattwo's storywriter considers some of the criticisms in the first three reviews to be more harsh than he realized at the time. This might be rectified in a future review.He has since reviewed the ''[[Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger Carranger]]'' counterpart to the pizza episode of ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'', pointing out how much worse certain aspects were, even coming to the realization that he was wrong about the Power Rangers episode botching the roll call (see NoJustNoReaction).

* ChoosingNeutrality: After being magically reformed, the first [[VideoGame/KamenRiderClimaxHeroes Dark Decade]] demanded that there "couldn't be two Decades" so Mattwo changed him into Kamen Rider Twocade, a neutral hero. The newly christened Twocade had no objections to this.

Added DiffLines:

** He later takes it back in his review of the Carranger version of the same episode because he realized the original version of the scene was [[TookALevelInDumbass actually dumber]] as instead of being disappointed that they didn't defeat the monster of the week properly or [[CriticalResearchFailure doing their actual roll call like he thought they did]] (the actual roll call was actually completely absent in this episode), they instead give exclamations of joy...


* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: Mattwo delivers one of these in his ''[[Cho Series/KamenRiderDeno Cho Den-O Episode Red]]'' review as a variation of the PatrickStewartSpeech explaining to the Dalek-bot that the reason why it failed to break his spirit through reviewing something he hated is because it's a reviewer's responsibility to review bad stuff so that people can make informed decisions about media before consuming it (though it didn't help that Mattwo ultimately just thought it was kind of medicore more than it was bad, which surprised even him). This also doubled at a TakeThat to reviewers who have villains who do this very thing, with it even working in some cases.

** He gave shorter IAmWhatIAm one in his review of the ''[[Series/DoctorWho The Daleks'']] serial in response to a Cyberman calling him out on his (and by proxy, his storywirter's) tendency to make poorly made reviews primarily on niche topics.


** The storywriter did this in text form in the Hearth's Warming eve review when Princess Platinum claimed the land as Unicornia, which caused him to play a brief clip of the relevant musical number from [[MyLittlePonyG3 The Runaway Rainbow]]...
