** George Wood's [[Series/GamingInTheClintonYears bizarre reviews]] have left the guys in complete hysterics several times. The most famous example is easily when George requests Eidos to make a storyline where [[VideoGame/TombRaider Lara Croft]] gets [[ItMakesSenseInContext breast cancer]].

** slowbeef has commented that he gets really annoyed when fans keep pestering him to do a video riffing on a popular Let's Player for no reason other than them being a popular Let's Player. He mentioned that chuggaconneroy was one of the most frequently requested of this nature and the duo refused to do this mostly since there was nothing notably bad or riff-worthy about chugga's videos.


** Slowbeef's sarcastic declaration of "All hail Shadow!" during parts 40 and 41 of his Sonic '06 wrongpurae becomes a delicious case of [[IncrediblyLamePun foreshadowing]] when the game starts singing those very words ''sincerely'' during Shadow's credit song.
** Speaking of Sonic '06, the very first thing Diabetus says in the first part of the saga is "Will it explode your Playstation 3?". Sure enough, halfway through the game Slowbeef's [=PS3=] went kaput.

They sidestep this problem both times by having Diabetus play dumb for most of the videos - when he 'figures it out' for the former, he has this reaction until he gets distracted by one of Nimdok's creations, and in the latter he stages a huge argument with slowbeef over general grievances he's had with the show (and promptly dropping them once Ellen defeats the rapist).

Added DiffLines:

** At the end of ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_9XS3YG-AQ Dead Space (this game has tons of it)]]'', slowbeef notices that the creator of the game tagged it with the keywords "horror", "cult", "prophecy", [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and his own username]]. Diabetus then jokes that one of the tags should be "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzDFCOjr734 General Dysisa]]".


** After the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oJmzeoMVe4 first couple minutes]] of ''Vorago'' consist almost entirely of a married couple arguing with one another following a car crash, Diabetus wonders if the player is taking the role of the couple's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsPCJO37v6o marriage counselor]].

* DudeNotFunny: In-Universe: Diabetus has this reaction in parts 3 and 4 of VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream, asking slowbeef how he's expected to joke about the Nimdok and Ellen's scenarios, which are about the holocaust and rape respectively. They sidestep this problem both times by having Diabetus play dumb for most of the videos - when he 'figures it out' for the former, he has this reaction until he gets distracted by one of Nimdok's creations, and in the latter he stages a huge argument with slowbeef over general grievances he's had with the show (and promptly dropping them once Ellen defeats the rapist).

It gets to the point where slowbeef is completely astounded by how many Clinton jokes he can come up with, considering the subject matter:
-->"Are you ready to '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hoh_c-WRNs contend]]''' with what's in my pants?"\\
"After I play '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0iYB9FWVT8 Buster Brothers]]''' I'm gonna bust a nut!"\\

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLswUGD8kxA All Diabetus Clinton jokes archived here.]]
** The legend continues with the new playlists Retsupurae have made on Youtube, with the description for the "Gaming in the Clinton Years" playlist as:
--> "When you hit my playlist you'll always wanna select repeat, baby."
** Also, starting with the Wrongpurae of ''VideoGame/LastAlert'' (and intially meant as a one-off reference to their LP of ''[[VideoGame/DeadToRights Dead To Rights: Retribution]]'' where they did the same thing), every episode now ends with them both saying "Dead to Rights."

* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Abused in many of the creepypastas featured on Crappy Pasta. To date, ''VideoGame/SonicExe'', ''Ihsoy'', ''Blood Whistle'', ''The Yellow Devil'' (which takes it to a ludicrous extreme with ''robots'' that bleed), the ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' story, and ''I HATE YOU'' all feature ludicrous amounts of blood.

-->'''lotrdude13''': Too busy to hang out with your best friend? You're not very good friends.
* PoesLaw: The guys have a little trouble with this sometimes. For instance, in ''The Marios'' they mistake a troll for an actual moron. They decide to start pre-screening videos beforehand after realizing they'd been fooled. In ''Amnesia: The Dork's Descent'', Diabetus and slowbeef argue about whether or not the [=LPer=]'s hysterical terror is staged - Diabetus is positive that it is, while slowbeef merely ''hopes'' so. The fact that the [=LPer=] in question, Jenomorph, favorited the video just hours after it was uploaded may support that theory.
** They also occasionally have trouble accepting that ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears'' was a "legitimate" video game show, as opposed to a very elaborate parody.
** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E47lUkoV4vU Let's Play Sonic the Hedgehog, but Second...]]'' features [=SuperBrosTV=] being wholly incompetent at ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' despite having extensively looked at the map of the level at the start of the video and his whole gimmick for the LP being an in-depth walkthrough. Diabetus actually asks multiple times, "is he fucking with us?" He eventually comes to the conclusion that it has to be on purpose, while slowbeef is still unsure by video's end.
** And then there was the time they [=RPed=] a video from LetsPlay/{{Critikal}}, apparently unaware that Critikal's videos are comedic/satirical, and he often intentionally plays games that are corrupted or poorly emulated. They spent much of the video complaining about the stretched screen and mocking Critikal's use of toilet humor. The video was eventually taken down after they were barraged by Critikal fans, and people informing the pair that they just took a goof video completely seriously. The condescending nature of much of that particular RP just made their mistake look even worse.
* PoliceCodeForEverything: From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=croeirrF_vk their riff on Lodge Massacre]], the SequelHook at the end features police sirens playing in the background. Diabetus imitates a cop, saying "We got a 10-53, someone's making a sequel to a bad flash game, over."

* PurpleProse: Several of the creepypastas they've riffed abuse this. The most notable example is ''Blood Whistle'', which starts out being written normally, then takes this trope to an absurd degree once the author finds the titular whistle.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: Their take on LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast whose accent is so exaggerated it seems fake.
** "Even ''British'' people are saying 'I can't believe how British this guy sounds.'"
*** Their [=ElectricalBeast=] retsupuraes have even created all-new English stereotypes between the group: Specifically, the English can now [[TimeTravel travel through toime]] and [[Series/DoctorWho telepor']].
* RailingKill: DoubleSubverted. Diabetus remarks that ''Crime Patrol'' didn't have one of these, only for one to happen a second later.
* SpinoffBabies: The ''Sir Basil Pike Public School'' wrongpurae videos have the title [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku263TRcScQ "Ambition Babies"]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: slowbeef gives one of these to Quadraxis14 in the [=SNES9X=] retsupurae. Here is the speech without the VerbalTic:
-->''Shut up! There are no viewers. No one watched this to the end except me. It is a seriously horrible video, Quadraxis14. [[{{Scrub}} There is no skill in]] [[SaveScumming replaying the same thing over and reloading save states over and over again]]. A monkey could do this. A kid can do this. It doesn't matter I don't know what the point of the video is. I don't know know why you're doing it. It will not make you popular in school. It will not get you girls or anything. It's a waste of time. I'm sorry. I'm taking away from 'On Liberty.'''
** The end of the RP of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is one big one against both the Critic and against fans for liking [[LargeHam his style of videos]]. Admittedly, a bulk of it is made up of ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch.
* RecursiveAcronym: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IiIcAr-8kw Let's Play Resident Evil 5: The Demo!]], the video is done by a group called E.P.I.C., which stands for '''E'''pic '''P'''wnage '''I'''n '''C'''olor.
-->'''Diabetus''': What does E.P.I.C. stand for again?\\
'''Proteus''': Epic... something, something, something.\\
'''slowbeef''': It's a recursive acronym.
* ReferenceOverdosed: The guys try to take this trope to the absolute limit in their [=RP=] of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Apocalypse]]'' dropping Creator/BruceWillis movie references (since he starred in the game) for around 20 minutes until they give up and start referencing pretty much anything from pop culture by that point.
* RescueSex: At the end of ''Ninja Hayate'', after saving the princess, Diabetus tells it as it is.
-->'''Princess:''' My hero!\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm gonna get laid, hyuh!"
* RevengeFic: The duo theorize that Mike Dawson must have done ''something'' to get Cyberdreams mad at him, considering ''Dark Seed II'' portrays him as the most obnoxious man alive who even the characters in the game can't stand.
* RomanticComedy: slowbeef theorizes, at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVgXam6YzcE Super Bummerman 2]], why musclebomber keeps saying "amy" instead of "enemy".
-->'''slowbeef:''' Amy must be like this bookworm chick who's into LetsPlay, so he's trying to get his nerdy friends to help him do one, so he chose Super Bummerman!\\
'''Diabetus:''' That sounds like the makings of the perfect teenage romantic comedy.
* RunningGag: Tons of them.
** Unregistered Hypercam 2
** When making fun of adventure games, announcing an abrupt end to character interaction with variations of "Okay, bye!"
** When a character opens their mouth ridiculously wide, Diabetus starts holding a note as if he were an opera star.
** When a character has their mouth slightly open but aren't saying anything, or when they stay seemingly frozen in place (usually accompanied with an empty stare), Diabetus gives a static "Uuuuhhhhhhnnnnnnnnnn..."
** The [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] voice, which becomes the voice of almost any reptilian enemy.
** Diabetus often lampshades the seeming inability of video game characters to speak at a distance. Even when they're standing only a few feet from each other.
-->'''King Graham addressing some thugs''': Gentlemen, please excuse me, I didn't mean to interrupt you.\\
'''One thug, standing across a counter two feet from Graham, walks around the counter to Graham.'''\\
'''Diabetus''': [...] I will come over here and we will resume this conversation.\\
'''Thug''': Da inn's full! Ain't got no more rooms.\\
'''Diabetus''': ...I had to come over here to tell you that.
** Diabetus's mentioning of different themes of music (eg. the "return the book to the library theme" in ''VideoGame/DarkSeed''), usually during games that were lucky to have a dozen songs.
** slowbeef's using a [[WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Mentok-esque]] "bweeeeee-oop" during teleportation of rapid camera movement.
** The duo tends to have a MomentOfSilence during ''VideoGame/DeepFear'''s elevator screens. slowbeef progressively gets irritated by this, even stating that [[OverusedRunningGag he's getting sick of having to keep the joke up]].
** Around the time when they started Retsutalk is when "[[Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream I have no X]], [[AndIMustScream and I must Y]]" became one of these. It eventually lead to their Wrongpurae of the game in question.
** Referring to "the Youtube Emperor" to whom they can supposedly report bad [=LPs=]. Sometimes identified with LetsPlay/DeceasedCrab.
** In the Negotiator/Ambition serious, slowbeef is repeatedly surprised that the flash games had an executive producer.
** slowbeef's [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane]] impression and Diabetus yelling from the other side of his room (presumably) whenever part of a Newgrounds review is in ALL CAPS.
** After drawn out opening credits scene, Diabetus often pretends as if they were the closing credits only for slowbeef to tell them the game hasn't started yet.
** Diabetus frequently uses a whiny "Unh!" grunt whenever a character punches or throws something.
** During the Mortal Kombat Mythologies Wrongpurae, Diabetus would occasionally say "[[{{Pun}} Sub-Zero X!]]"
** Blood, from the Crappy Pasta videos.
** In Slowbeef's playthrough of ''Afterfall: Insanity,'' exclusively using the fire ax (as well as replacing it with a new one whenever he comes across one).
** Whenever there's StuffBlowingUp, you can expect a joke or two about Creator/MichaelBay [[ADateWithRosiePalms needing some alone time]] while watching it, especially during ''Surgical Strike'' and Dahi̇r İnşaat's military videos.
** [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons "Jane, stop this crazy thing!!!"]]
** slowbeef trying to imitate a certain genre or comedy style [[AntiHumor and]] [[StylisticSuck deliberately]] [[CannotTellAJoke botching it]], such as his attempt to do a PrivateEyeMonologue in ''Noir: A Shadowy Thriller'', or how his back-and-forth [[ReferenceOverdosed movie title-dropping]] with Diabetus in ''Apocalypse'' devolved into him [[TropeName reading out the name of a movie in the middle of a sentence without context]].
* RuthlessModernPirates: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtmSY3u9CUM In this vid.]] According to slowbeef: "[[LetsPlay/SirRonLionheart He's]] like the only pirate you would never ever wanna be in your life."
** "Shiver me timbers, alriiiiight, hawhawhawww!"
* SanitySlippage:
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Retsupurae. Listening to the shift in commentary from making fun of the video to [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness outright insulting the guy who made it]], it's obvious they're suffering.
** Some videos incite giggling fits in the commentors at points later in the video. ''Earnest Evans'' is the greatest example of this, since the game simply becomes exponentially more ridiculous as time goes on.
** The 4+ hours of boredom during the ''[[VideoGame/DarkSeed Dark Seed II]]'' longplay slowly drive slowbeef ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness and]]'' Diabetus into an infuriated frenzy. The incompetence of the longplayer, [[TryEverything obsessively exploring the same areas and dialogue trees]] and sometimes even doing absolutely nothing for long stretches of time, does ''not'' help matters.
** ''King's Quest VII'' goes from boring them to death to causing them to prattle insanely in impersonations of [[Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy Joker and Bane]].
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' takes a heavy toll on both slowbeef and Diabetus.
-->'''slowbeef:''' ''[at the end of Episode 50]'' Can I just say one thing? Usually, we stop recording, we have a little, not debrief, but an aside? I have never heard you more depressed than after ''Sonic 06'' episodes. I'm not lying. After the billiard ball puzzle, we stopped recording, and you were like, "That was ''abhorrent''."
* SarcasmFailure:
** "I am sure that someone wants me to come up with something witty to say to [[http://www.viddler.com/explore/retsu/videos/108/ this guy]], but ''he is just faaaaat.''"
** Throughout their RP of VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy, Proteus is reduced from DeadpanSnarker to gibbering, {{Angrish}}-spewing wreck by the atrocious game design.
** During the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4dlwgbj7hc Mortal Kombat Mythologies]]'' Wrongpurae, Diabetus attempts to make a joke about the fire-breathing dinosaur:
-->'''Diabetus:''' I.... I'm sorry this is ridiculous.
** In the ''Altered Beast'' Wrongpurae:
-->'''Diabetus:''' This just presents a slew of pun opportunities! I don't know where to start! So I won't.
* SceneryPorn: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsPlgVgCRSo [=SnakemanMN=] Wants to Be the Guy]], slowbeef and Dave_O begin to marvel at the amazing detail of the background of I Want to Be the Guy when [=SnakemanMN=] pauses the game for two minutes to answer his phone.
-->'''Dave_O:''' You see there's purple bricks; but then there's also... hold on a second... grey ones.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Woah, you're right! I would never have noticed that if he hadn't paused the game for a full minute to pick up the phone.
* {{Scotireland}}: Diabetus and slowbeef have no idea whether the [=LPer=] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCRCJRCH8VE this video]] is Scottish or Irish, so they split the difference.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Y'know, he's probably from New Jersey.
** While watching the pilot to the VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} cartoon, slowbeef misidentifies Morrigan's [[OohMeAccentsSlipping fluctuating Scottish accent]] as Irish.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Diabetus does this to an extent in part 4 of the "I have no mouth and I must scream" wrongpurae. He is implied to have turned away from the screen during the elevator sequence.
** They get about halfway through ''VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies'' before giving up. When asked, Diabetus later said that the game got so nonsensical that they couldn't make it funny.
* SdrawkcabName: Abused to hilarious effect in ''Ihsoy'', especially with Hceap Ssecnirp.
* SelfDeprecation: In their RP of Policenauts, Diabetus comments that the only thing sadder than reviewing the game would be hacking it. slowbeef, who was working on a translation patch for the game at the time, commented "I'll sa--fuck you."
** Diabetus and his family are occasionally made the butt of jokes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5TW2PfwxMQ In the RP of Nostalgic Rage's Mario 3 LP]], they go on a tangent about if the [=LPer=] (who has a thick southern accent) is actually Diabetus' Dad. In another video, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR94fOBDFcs The self-titled "Worst Retsupurae Ever"]], Diabetus wishes the Pokemon LP would evolve into pornography, adding that he meant HUMAN porn, not Pokemon porn.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Look, I know you're from the south, and you don't understand how evolution works, but still...\\
'''Proteus:''' He's from the South, so he understands having sex with animals, but these aren't real animals.\\
'''Diabetus:''' I'm from the South, and evolution is what happens when Pokemon evolve into the Bible, right?
** Near the end of the ''Nocturnal Letters'' Retsuflash, Diabetus comes to the conclusion that the titular game was made in the South due to its terrible graphics and BrotherSisterIncest subplot.
** Proteus also mocked slowbeef for basically being responsible for most of these:
-->'''Proteus:''' This is all your fault, slowbeef.
** In the description for a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8WZMA37aZE Metroid Prime 3 Retsupurae]]
--> [[TemptingFate What could be worse than thi--]] [[http://blip.tv/file/4453432/ ...oh]]
** The "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8B5UxxX63o JOP]]" video was eventually renamed to "[[VideoGame/{{Parodius}} Jikkyu Oshaberi Parodius]] - The Only Thing Harder to Spell than Retsupurae."
* SeparateSceneStorytelling: slowbeef and Diabetus [[PlayingWithATrope play with this trope]] by acting as if the video game narrator for ''King's Quest V'' is really reading a book to his grandson. The "grandson," who the duo names Billy, then proceeds to ask questions to his grandfather about the oddness of the story.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Shows up in some of the Crappy Pastas, ''[[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/crappy-pasta-iii-hear-its-cry-6620176 Blood Whistle]]'' and ''[[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/creepypasta-live-it-wasn-t-lavender-town-6670876 It Wasn't Lavender Town]]'' in particular.
--> '''slowbeef:''' "Their only purpose in making this mod was to flagellate the naive soul to take the bait of its mysterious houris..."\\
'''Diabetus:''' Is that the mission statement behind this ROM hack, really?\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''[[{{Corpsing}} *laughing*]]'' God almighty. I need thesaurus on every single...
* ShaggyDogStory: In the ''[[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Cobra]]'' wrongpurae, slowbeef and Diabetus sit through seven hours of the titular character's space adventures, only for it to end with a hurried sequence of events that the pair summarize thusly:
-->'''slowbeef:''' [[spoiler:Your two sisters died for a weapon I just shot...!]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' Well, that was all pretty pointless, wasn't it?
* ShockSite: slowbeef's [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity interpretation]][[invoked]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmXVjSJ72yU&list=UU7UdKZ9ujF1sFlP93dfjMgA NO GIRLS ALLOWED]].
* ShoutOut: Quite a few, including ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KT64t2ITuM No Hope]]'', which quickly turned into our boys systematically running through every single line from ''Franchise/StarWars'' that had been subject to MemeticMutation.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5evl89KsmLM The first Wrongpurae of]] ''VideoGame/EvilZone'' has a ton of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' references, due to the fact that the longplayer's selected character has [[Creator/PaulEiding Colonel Campbell's voice]] - complete with playing the music from [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Arsenal Gear]] during an intermission when they had to re-sync their audio.
** In the Retsufrash of the Newgrounds game, Fractured, after commenting that the messages in the game sound like fortune cookies, he bets that the next one will say, [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife "Bad luck and misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity."]]
** Diabetus has thrown in the occasional inexplicit ''Series/DoctorWho'' reference.
** Retsupurae's official video playlist for the ''[[Creator/ZapDramatic Ambition]]'' series is subtitled [[Theatre/HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying How To Succeed in Flash Without Really Trying]].
** The titles of their ''VideoGame/AloneInTheDark'' wrongpuraes are all {{Pun}}s based on other media: ''[[VideoGame/HeavyRain The Origami Thriller]]'', ''[[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Pirates of the Carnby-ean]]'' and ''[[Film/CowboysAndAliens Cowboys vs. Polygons]]''.
*** Ditto with ''[[VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream I Have No Game, And I Must Play]]'', which uses a different pun for each part's subtitle: ''[[Film/WeekendAtBernies Weekend at Bennie's]]'', ''[[Film/BetterOffDead Better Off Ted]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH The Secret of Nimdok]]'', ''[[Series/{{Ellen}} The Ellen Show]]'', ''[[Film/FindingForrester Finding Gorrister]]'' and ''[[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs The Silence of the AMs]]''.
** Upon hearing the accent of the player in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6OVduqiHN0 Where in time is Mario?]]'', Diabetus claims that the "problem" he mentions in the first few seconds is "he was out [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill gettin' propane]]".
* SincerityMode: The pair chose to ''apologize'' to Rijno, LetsPlay/BillyMC, and even [[WebVideo/TheIrateGamer Chris Bores]] upon watching WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's attempt a Let's Play. They repeatedly said that they weren't kidding.
-->'''slowbeef:''' This is the September 11th of Let's Play.
** Later on his Formspring account, slowbeef actually said he ''owed Doug Walker an apology'' after watching LetsPlay/PewDiePie.
** Later on, he claimed Tobuscus was even worse than [=PewDiePie=]; in the Retsutalk after "Adults React To [=PewDiePie=]" he apologized and retracted the statement (though he maintains the opinion that Tobuscus is ''almost'' as bad).
** In [[http://www.formspring.me/effinslowbeef/q/423617876755243818 this Formspring post]], slowbeef offered an apology to [=QueenieZ=] upon hearing that she apparently still receives hate mail and death threats over her Eternal Darkness [=LP=].
** A bit more than halfway through [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5ln7sK_5mo "Local Paperboy Calls It Quits!,"]] Diabetus briefly interrupts the riff in order to alleviate Billy's concerns that some of his retsupurae-based viewers don't actually like him:
-->'''Diabetus:''' No one dislikes you, Billy! Like, seriously, unironically, I'm saying that: No one dislikes you.\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...It's ''possible'' that someone dislikes him--\\
'''Diabetus:''' [[HeartwarmingMoments No it's not! No, it's not.]]
** During the Retsufrash of Exmortis, after going through another incredibly long journal, they suggest that the creator write novels or short stories.
** Despite spending most of ''VideoGame/{{Harvester}}'' RP poking fun at the game, they admitted that [[spoiler:the simulation being representative of violent video games]] was interesting social commentary.
** About halfway through part 3 of ''Cobra 3D'', the duo point out just how little effort seems to have been put into the game by apologizing to [=OmegaEdge29=] for making fun of his ''Kaizo Mario 64'' romhack's similar lack of effort.
** [[invoked]]slowbeef admits that the TimeTravel rules used by ''VideoGame/ShadowOfDestiny'' [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot have potential]], but gets weighed down by [[MoonLogicPuzzle the obtuse puzzle design]] and [[IdiotHero Eike's decision-making]].
* ShootingSuperman: Brought up in ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'', when Cobra fights a man made of nigh-indestructible glass.
-->'''slowbeef:''' They're having a fist fight? He's made of fuckin' crystal!
* SimilarlyNamedWorks:[[invoked]] In "Retsufrash is Art", slowbeef and Diabetus watch a playthrough of the ugolegend Flash ArtGame "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/576095 Loneliness]]" but read the [[FanDumb user comments]] from the unrelated ArtGame "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/548694 Loneliness.]]" [[FailedASpotCheck without realizing their mistake]].
* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]]slowbeef has this reaction to ''VideoGame/ShadowWarOfSuccession''. In a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZAWAqyjedo very]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuCT7CuEIz0 intense]] way.
-->'''slowbeef:''' I have to get a UsefulNotes/ThreeDOInteractiveMultiplayer [[UsefulNotes/{{Emulation}} emulator]] tonight!
** Ditto with Diabetus and ''VideoGame/{{Growl}}''.
--->'''Diabetus:''' (after seeing the AttractMode flashing the "INSERT COIN" text) I would have inserted my entire ''wallet'' at this point.
* SoBadItsHorrible: [[invoked]]Diabetus ends up sharing slowbeef's sentiment towards ''Arise 4'' by the end of the video.
* SoundEffectBleep: Abused horribly (or possibly [[SoBadItsGood hilariously]]) in Raven Rage's LetsPlay of [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 Super Mario Brothers 3]]. The effects used to haphazardly censor his profanity included an [[MostAnnoyingSound obnoxiously loud bleep, an obnoxiously loud siren, farting and belching noises, and shattering glass]]. This was riffed on mercilessly in the commentary:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "You guys got somethin' other than glass breakin' and fartin'? ...Think I got a siren."\\
'''Proteus:''' "I don't know, let me see what I can get on freesoundeffects.com."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm gonna behead a chicken, you got one of them Yak Bak machines?"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSugkuzwpBM Test Your Mig--oh it's over]]" features a random, TV-style bleep in the middle of the source video. The duo makes fun of this both when it happens and in the post commentary.
* SoundtrackDissonance:
** ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' doesn't have that many music tracks, resulting in some wildly inappropriate music at times. Of course slowbeef points this out at every opportunity
** The soundtrack of ''VideoGame/DeepFear'', which is actually quite good, is spoiled by the dullness of the situation.
** The source video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm2rhVIZkxI OH YES I AM DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS]]" uses "Decadence" by Music/{{Disturbed}}[[note]]The riff video uses different music for copyright reasons[[/note]] as background music for an LP of ''a Website/{{Facebook}} anime-style profile picture application.'' The duo pretends to be {{otaku}} who [[MundaneMadeAwesome think this is awesome]].
--> '''Diabetus:''' This music doesn't fit with what's going on at all!!
** The sudden metal music at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ9Vt1yVVko "Mario Dies at the End"]] catches them both off guard and brings slowbeef to hysterics.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUWqitoyzSY Final Zone 2 Part 2]]" opens with Round 4 of ''Final Zone II'' as Momoko Ring, in which what sounds like the pop song opening theme of an anime plays in the background. In a [[TopDownView top-down]] military [[ShootEmUp shooter]]. The riffers joke that the soundtrack was composed before ''the game's genre'' was finalized.
--> '''slowbeef:''' This is so not appropriate for the action!\\
'''Diabetus:''' It's what she's listening to in her ears. It gets her into the killing mood!\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''Final Zone II: Shit Just Happens and Then I Don't Know What.''\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''Final Zone II: Our Website/{{Pandora}} Is ''Really'' Broken.''
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]], they tell so many bad puns that it becomes so unfunny, that it's funny.
-->'''slowbeef:''' [[LampshadeHanging Would anyone find this [video] funny besides us?]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' I think they tuned out a long time ago.
* SpaceX: Diabetus makes a big deal about the "Space" part of ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' and the two of them prefix random things with "space" and talk about how things are the way they are [[RecycledInSpace because it's space]].
** In ''Retsupurae 3000'', everything is Cyber-X...[[RunningGag because it's]] TheFuture.
* SpinOff: ''Webcam Ward'', a video series on Website/SomethingAwful with slowbeef and Khad (Diabetus took Khad's place from ''When Fur is Rubbed the Wrong Way'' on) commentating on various other Youtube videos.
* SpoilerOpening: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUgBMSwE050 PTSD: Pokemon Traumatic Stress Disorder]] is an RP of a ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' LP that consists of a failed attempt to get through a dungeon, preceded by a minute and a half of anime music playing over clips that spoil every plot twist in the game after that point.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[http://twitpic.com/s4ll9 This picture sums their opinion up]]
* StealthInsult: During the credits of ''VideoGames/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', slowbeef and Diabetus notice that Roberta Williams was credited as a "[[HarpingOnAboutHarpies Harpy]]" and a "[[YouDirtyRat Rat]]", and assumed that the game was insulting its very own creator.
* StealthPun: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvhbgPeD4cc this]] vid, Diabetus suggests that instead of hanging out with Solar Man and getting blazed, he and slowbeef should simply chill, man. Just chill, man. [[spoiler:Chill Man is the Robot Master [[ElementalRockPaperScissors weak to Solar Blaze]] in ''Mega Man 10'']].
** Another, less subtle one shows up in the "Let's Rock Out" video with Diabetus commenting "I wonder how long he had to Music/{{Muse}} over the song choice before he felt ready." The LP was of Knights of Cydonia, a song by the band.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: The "Meet 'N' Fuck Kingdom" video has all the sex scenes censored out, with the player adding in text lying about what the character was doing.
-->'''Narration:''' And then they drank tea. They certainly didn't engage in six incredibly frustrating, boring, and shameful sexual mini-games that were so needlessly complex, these three girls are essentially the final bosses of Meet n' Fuck Kingdom. Nope.
* SweetHomeAlabama: Diabetus is from Alabama, and has the Southern Hospitality trait down to a tee with his more deadpan sense of humour and stoicism. During the State Flag round in ''"What is Madmatty Thinking?" "Correctl!"'' he immediately recognizes the Alabama flag from a vague written description, without even seeing it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:T - Z]]
* TakeAThirdOption: Demonstrated in this exchange
-->'''slowbeef:''': Maybe [[LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast he]] was playing VideoGame/ChronoTrigger and doesn't realize when one game ends and the other begins?\\
'''Diabetus:''': Nah, I think he's just crazy.\\
{{Beat}}\\
'''slowbeef:''' Can't it be both?
* TakeYourTime: They repeatedly mock ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'' for this. "King Graham, the ''forgetful'' adventurer".
* TemptingFate:
** In their ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' Retsupurae:
-->'''slowbeef:''' Okay, this is VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}. So there's no fucking way you have a UsefulNotes/BillClinton joke.\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''(In faux-Clinton accent)'' "I'll show you something that's [[HumongousMecha Weltall]]."\\
''[{{Beat}}]''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''(Astounded)'' Shit...\\
'''Diabetus:''' Sorry.
** Also, in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3v5AMNjH8M Most Shameful Thing In The World]] Retsupurae:
-->'''Diabetus:''' With the amount of dignity lost, I don't see how this could possibly get any... ''*RecordNeedleScratch*'' [[DancingTheme ...worse?]]
** In Let's Point at Super Metroid: "I propose this video cannot get worse from this moment. Seriously." Somehow, it did.
** In [=MageKnight404=]'s Let's Play of Pokemon White:
-->'''[=MageKnight=]:''' So thanks for watching us play Pokemon White.\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''(In fake Hilda voice)'' "Who are you talking to?"\\
'''[=MageKnight=]:''' ''(In '''his''' Hilda voice)'' "Wait, who are you talking to?"\\
'''slowbeef:''' Oh god.\\
'''Diabetus:''' Really?
** During the ''Escape'' RP:
-->'''slowbeef:''' Now to solve this puzzle tout suite. ''(Places sink handle on faucet and turns it on.)'' First we turn on the water...\\
'''Proteus:''' This might be the least retarded solution for any puzzle in this game yet.\\
'''slowbeef:''' And we're going to stop up the water with the ''silver coin''...\\
'''Proteus:''' Never mind, spoke too soon...
** During the Arise 4 RF, slowbeef mentions the how easy it is to accidentally click off a window during the game's awful combat sections, while he's fighting one of the enemies. No points for guessing what he does almost immediately afterwards.
** Invoked during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbVKL-Meo0 "Adults React To PewDiePie"]]:
-->'''slowbeef:''' *Sigh* Y'know, maybe I'm making to much of this, maybe it's not that bad. I'm sure it has some appeal and there's probably nothing that terrible in these videos I mean you know--\\
'''LetsPlay/PewDiePie:''' Look! He's raping her, he's raping her!\\
'''slowbeef:''' I'm sorry, what was that?
** After the end of the mission in ''VideoGame/SurgicalStrike,'' the protagonist goes to a tropical island to vacation with some bikini babes. DJB responds to this with "It'd be great if these beach girls [[RunningGag just started]] [[StuffBlowingUp exploding.]]" [[spoiler:They immediately do, courtesy of Kabul.]]
** Near the end of ''VideoGame/DraculaUnleashed'', Diabetus mock protagonist Alexander's inability to protect anyone by commenting that he would come back into the house where his fiance is in along with Van Helsing and find it swarming with vampires. [[spoiler:He does.]]
** Slowbeef's sarcastic declaration of "All hail Shadow!" during parts 40 and 41 of his Sonic '06 wrongpurae becomes a delicious case of [[IncrediblyLamePun foreshadowing]] when the game starts singing those very words ''sincerely'' during Shadow's credit song.
** Speaking of Sonic '06, the very first thing Diabetus says in the first part of the saga is "Will it explode your Playstation 3?". Sure enough, halfway through the game Slowbeef's [=PS3=] went kaput.
** Diabetus seems to have developed clairvoyance for imminent silliness. From their RP of Metroid: Other M's theater mode:
-->'''Diabetus:''' If only grappling was authorized...\\

''Hilarity ensues''
** During "[[https://youtu.be/TM4tmIGV6QU?t=290 Assjoe's Silent Hill]]", Mr. DJB notes that he feels that they're "not at risk", no matter what they do, because there are no forests to eat them (in reference to the two [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSWLa0ib8LU "Fog"]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOaBogxfdDk games]] the group tackled earlier in the stream). slowbeef enters a room that the game notes a "nasty smell" is coming from as he's saying this, and five seconds later a jumpscare kills him.
* ThatCameOutWrong: During the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "They call me The Fister!" ...Oh, shit, wait, I didn't mean that.
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Invoked. In ''Worst Retsupurae Ever'', slowbeef remarks on the laziness of the Pokemon animators, saying "They won't care, they already spent their 100 yen!" Later the guys are joking about Kabuto:
-->'''Proteus:''' What the fuck is a Kabuto? Isn't that that weird kind of Japanese theater where they get all- paint on their face and shit?\\
'''slowbeef:''' It might as well be.\\
'''Proteus:''' I know somebody's going to leave a fuckin' comment, by the way, that goes, "no you're thinking of Kabuki", so shut up, fuck you, don't even do it.\\
'''slowbeef:''' It's the same person who's gonna go, "You know, slowbeef, 100 yen's really not a lot of money."\\
'''Proteus:''' You know, I hope somebody actually put that fucking comment in before they watched the rest of the video.\\
'''slowbeef:''' They're gonna fuckin' delete it now, I know.\\
'''Proteus:''' You're gonna see like 27 comments have been deleted.
** The "That's So Kaizo!" videos gave us this gem:
--->'''slowbeef:''' Now maybe I'll two-star this video instead...I know someone in the comments is gonna say the stupid thing--alright, fine, thumbs down, or whatever they do on Website/YouTube.\\
'''Diabetus:''' Middle finger, actually.
** [[spoiler:Deliberately invoked]] in the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSd-9ZVbZA4 Huzzah!]]'' video.
** As the Wrongpurae of the ''Jurassic Park'' arcade game draws to a close, slowbeef realizes he's been referring to the Triceratops as a Stegosaurus for the entire game, and suspects everyone will leave comments to correct him. They did.
* ThanksgivingEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S1OXJSVfww "A Retsupurae Thanksgiving"]]
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: In the animation [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTosXPd9oJU Refund]], the character screams in a monotone "BITCH, GET THE FUCK OFF ME. DIE, BITCH, DIE. GO TO HELL, YOU LITTLE BITCH, DIE." Later in the video, it provoked the following discussion.
-->'''slowbeef:''' I-- maybe it was, like, how to get a refund... Like, "Don't be afraid to take back your pumpkins."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "This is an example of a defective product. Here's what you should do in this situation, ''bitch.''"
** They also did it before that.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Why didn't he just put a text that said ''I WAS DISPLEASED'' and save yourself some artwork, there?\\
'''Diabetus:''' "''MY SHOPPING EXPERIENCE WAS SUBPAR''."\\
'''slowbeef:''' "''Bitch''."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "Die."
** From the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-r6r2YALn0 Zelda]] video: "I like to throw in curses every so often, bitch."
** Abused by the [=LPer=] in slowbeef and @Voidburger's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is96HGUJWWA Mario Combat]] riff. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdXS-SWJ2aY Diabetus mentions that]] he and the "faggot"-spewing kid from "GOD HATES POOCHYENAS" would probably get along well.
* TitleDrop: In their ''VideoGame/{{T|heTrappedTrilogy}}rapped'' Retsuflash:
-->'''Narration:''' Why do I feel so... trapped?\\
'''Proteus:''' Oh, I see what you did there.\\
'''slowbeef:''' I can't believe that they actually did that.
** Later, during the third game of the series they throw in forced title drops to all three games in the series--Trapped, Pursuit and Escape--in immediate succession.
-->'''Dialla:''' Why do I feel so... trapped?\\
'''slowbeef:''' "W-''why do I feel so trapped?!''"\\
'''Proteus:''' I feel ''trapped''! Trapped in this ''pursuit''--\\
'''both:''' --and I have to ''escape''!
** Strangely averted in the Satanorium Retsufrash (one would expect a Newgrounds game with a title like that to be dropping it at every punctuation mark), which causes slowbeef to repeatedly mispronounce it as "sanatorium."
* TogetherInDeath: Joked about in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2ocE19YWhs Jack Slate's First Day on the Force]]" when a ''VideoGame/CrimePatrol'' {{mook}} dies clutching a box in a warehouse.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Aww, he was in love with that box.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Now they can be together forever!
* ToiletHumor: A RunningGag in their ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheDragon'' Wrongpurae involved the inexplicable fart noises the machines made. A door in the dark world of ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'' had a similar sound effect that they commented on as well.
** Their riff on ''VideoGame/DeepFear'' had a few fart jokes due to bubbles occasionally appearing behind John Mayor in underwater sections and a theory about air grenades. In part 3 of the wrongpurae, slowbeef brings up an anecdote about someone in his office who is apparently such a GassHole it affects other people's productivity.
* TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buUM916QRJk A Day in the Life of DarkSydePhil]] parodies Phil's inability to perform basic actions in games as well as his tendency to blame said games for his own incompetence by applying the same thing to real life actions such as starting up a car, unlocking an [=iPad=] or even eating pasta with a fork.
* {{Troll}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVGFkA5zjso "The Marios"]], which they discover that the [=LP=] was intentionally made to be horrible. The total derailment of their commentary is hilarious.
** There was another troll video RP at one point. It was an absolutely atrocious ''Super Mario Bros. 64'' LP by "[=SuperCrazyHealthBar=]", but this time, when slowbeef and Diabetus realized that he made it intentionally bad to be RP'd, they immediately privitized and cut all ties to it. It's a shame too, since it was a pretty good riffing (though it's been mirrored [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGRsUELHzyM here]]). It was mostly likely taken down because, while "The Marios" was [[SoBadItsGood cleverly done and entertaining to watch on its own]], the Mario 64 LP went on for ''over thirty'' videos, all of which were nigh-impossible to watch due to the horrific screechy audio.
-->'''slowbeef:''' It seems like it's a troll, except it went on for 33 videos. Like, he thought this was really funny.\\
'''Diabetus:''' [[TemptingFate No one carries on a joke that long.]]
* {{Troperiffic}}: How slowbeef and Diabetus describe Jimmy from ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'', very nearly right down to the name:
-->'''Diabetus:''' I'm sure the guy who calls himself 'the local wiseguy' is, in fact, the local wiseguy.\\
'''slowbeef:''' "By the way, I'm quote-unquote '[[TheMafia mobbed up]]'!"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm a bit of a '[[CowboyCop loose cannon]]', they would say!"\\
'''slowbeef:''' "If you've ever seen ''Series/TheSopranos'', maybe? I'm like the guy on DVD 2"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "[[ShoutOut You'll find me all over]] Wiki/{{TV Tropes}}!"
** Upon watching the intro movie to ''VideoGame/EvilZone,'' they deduce that the game will feature just about every {{anime trope|s}} possible. Their hypothesis turns out to be more or less accurate.
* {{Understatement}}: [[invoked]]slowbeef's response to reading [=BearPigMan=]'s message regarding the "difficulty" of ''Paradigm Shift'': "So this looks like an annoying game to play."
* TheUnfavorite: [=BillyMC=], whose older brother, [=JacobMC=], is much more liked by his parents. To the point where Billy's Christmas present is two [=McDonald's=] French Fries that a hobo rubbed on his armpits. And the dog ate one. "You got [=JacobMC=] an Xbox 360!" "Well he's much better at Mario than you, and he's a Harvard graduate."
** Conveniently enough, there is a [[http://www.youtube.com/jacobmc jacobmc channel]] on Youtube which contains a few regular videos. Nevertheless, every comment section of his videos and profile is filled with avid [=BillyMC=] supporters yelling their abuse at the inactive Jacob.
* UnfortunateImplications: InUniverse.
** They basically have a field day with ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'''s many, ''many'' sexist implications. They're also quite disturbed at the blatant Freudian symbolism.
** ''VideoGame/JackOrlando'''s attempt to use DeliberateValuesDissonance to show the homophobic and racist bigotry of 1930's America backfires since much of that dialogue is coming from the mouth of the [[{{Jerkass}} already-unlikable player character]]. It just makes slowbeef and Diabetus hate him even more.[[invoked]]
--->'''Diabetus''': It's rare that you want to root ''against'' the hero of the story, but here we are! I'd like Jack to be in prison for a long time.
* UnfortunateNames:
** Diabetus' real name is apparently John Assfucker.
** Hammerbolt Joe and Crystal Boy, from the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Is this supposed to make me afraid of Crystal Boy? Because his name is still Crystal Boy.
** ''Soldier Boyz'' has squad members Butts, Lamb and Brophy.
** At the start of the ''VideoGame/HopkinsFBI'' wrongpurae, Mr. DJB giggles at [[BigBad Bernie Berkson]]'s name, but quickly takes it back once he realized [[NukeEm what Bernie did]].
* UnusualEuphemism: Alexander's "Magic Map" in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVI''.
--->'''Narrator:''' Alexander pulls out his "Magic Map".\\
'''Diabetus:''' Yeah, that's a euphemism if I've ever heard one.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Every time he says that, I'm expecting something horrible!
* VerbalTic: A few forced examples as part of a gag:
-->''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt2uyDqbA-Q Second Kaizo Mario World Retsupurae]]'': [=SNES9X=]\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vms1rY9gmZw I Wanna Be The Guy Retsupurae]]'': Please Stop Let's Playing I Wanna Be The Guy\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8d1zkUusqY Battletoads Retsupurae, with 007's shyer, nerdier brother.]]'': Battletoads. Battletoads. BATTLETOADS. Battletoads.
** Diabetus ''really'' likes to say "Battletoads", by the way - he does it several times completely unprompted during both his ''Battletoads'' [=LPs=] and his MST of the ''Battletoads'' pilot.
** As mentioned above, slowbeef demonstrated in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6a4y1axHsk "Resident Seavil 2"]] that his habit of narrating illogical or abrupt story transitions with "MeanwhileBackAtThe" is more deep-seated than he realized when he unsuccessfully attempted to not say it throughout the whole video.
** slowbeef says "y'know?" or "know what I mean?" almost constantly in the middle of casual conversation, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlCdP5amh50 during Retsutalk.]]
* ViewersAreMorons: Justified in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyK3UNb4I80 Nightmare House]]'' where the solution to a puzzle is blatantly told to you on a nearby note, due to it being another MoonLogicPuzzle. Which kind of defeats the purpose.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Now, seriously--you remade the game and you kept these shit puzzles in? Like, you had the whole opportunity!\\
'''General Ironicus:''' It would be really clever and keep people out if he didn't just tape the instructions to the wall right next to it.
** Pointed out in the Cobra Wrongupurae when the game showed a flashback to something right after the game told Cobra what had happened.
-->'''Diabetus''': You had to flash back to this? How stupid do you think we are!?
* ViolationOfCommonSense: In Arrival in Hell, slowbeef and Diabetus have to kill a demon (with ''burning flesh'') - by attacking it with a ''[[AerosolFlamethrower deodorant flamethrower]]''.
--> '''slowbeef:''' We use the matches with the deodorant to get a flamethrower, to kill the beast with the ''burning flesh''!
* VisualPun: In "A Day in the Life of [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]]", one scene has Psychedelic Eyeball draw a dog with two floppy ears. As in floppy disks.
* WhamLine: From "The Marios":
-->'''Luwiigi Master:''' *laughter* Oh my God, I'm sorry, people, it's just that I keep thinking about all these other Let's Players who, like, got made fun of by Retsupurae...\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''[[OhCrap Aww, shit!]] *commentary proceeds to derail entirely*''
** And another from "So there's that":
--> '''[[SelfInsert Raymond:]]''' [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Linoan]], I love you.
** A few days earlier than "The Marios" comes this example from "Huzzah!":
-->'''slowbeef:''' So, I know we were gonna wait until the 9 minute mark, but, um... I-I thi-I think they've seen enough. [[spoiler:Should we tell 'em?]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' I... Yeah, I- I think; we can't keep this up any longer.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Yeah, uh, [[spoiler:we actually haven't been watching any video. We're gonna splice this right over ''any'' one of [=DeceasedCrab=]'s videos.]]
** Duke Crabtree's immortal line from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVlt_F62Pao&list=PLo4M1tlpv9ruM7k2Pr_0auqL8IveRE5gl#t=3284 the final chapter of]] ''[[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLo4M1tlpv9ruM7k2Pr_0auqL8IveRE5gl Ambition]]'': [[spoiler:"Because I'm a terrorist!"]]
** After spending [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHX0loqttHw the entire video]] listening to George Wood's contradictory schizophrenic ramblings about [[VideoGame/ToyStory the Toy Story game]], he makes one comment that genuinely shocks Slowbeef and Diabetus:
--->'''George Wood''': Bottom line, when all is said and done, [[spoiler:''Toy Story'' has better gameplay than either of the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' games]].
--->'''slowbeef / Diabetus''': [[FreakOut WAIT, WHAT?!]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Diabetus gave slowbeef a big one after slowbeef deliberately withheld the Holocaust and rape plot points from him during their riff of ''I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream'', since it resulted in Diabetus accidentally making a ''lot'' of [[DudeNotFunny bad jokes]].
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: According to slowbeef, he and Diabetus got drunk and woke up to find that they had recorded an hour and a half retsupurae on an LP of ''VideoGame/LastAlert'' with no player commentary.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: [[invoked]] [[InUniverse Basically the entire point]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq1uiYXWIGY this video]], where slowbeef and [=TieTuesday=] poke fun at a Fun Kids Smile [[WebAnimation web cartoon]] that uses [[UsefulNotes/{{Plagiarism}} plagiarized Disney characters]] and "jokes" about DomesticAbuse, sex and ToiletHumor. Even worse, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5If1ZWfNoJM there's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnsyFyLcqj8 more]].
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Their reaction to the inexplicable voice of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9w88AnisKvM BlazeDragon132]].
** There's also this little tidbit:
-->'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAMlb7geKV8 Goldskarr:]]''' Actually, I remember playing [''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''] on the Super 'Tendo...\\
'''Diabetus:''' ...The Super '''Tendo'''?\\
'''slowbeef:''' What the hell accent is that?\\
'''Diabetus:''' Uh, a drunk British person trying to sound American?\\
'''slowbeef:''' Sounds to me like an American who burned his tongue on soup trying to sound British.
** They also have trouble with the main character's accent in Arrival in Hell. They eventually conclude that he's Australian.
** Most viewers' reaction to [=PsychedelicEyeball=]'s accent. [[note]]He's French Canadian, if you're wondering.[[/note]]
** Their reaction to Mrs. Ramirez in the Wrongpurae of ''[[VideoGame/DarkSeed Dark Seed II]]''. They eventually narrow it down from "European Mish-Mash" to "Vaguely Irish/Swedish", but have definitely ruled out any sort of Hispanic accent.
** With Chip and Ironicus, one of their targets was [=Cauchemar89=], who apparently had an Swiss German accent; one that was quite bizzare to them, to the point of making 'Skaetbord Skampurr' a running gag throughout the video, similar to above examples.
* WhosOnFirst: In "Mass Erect", DJB jokingly interprets Diabetus reading a review by "youngerme" to mean that Diabetus was claiming to have written the review in the past:
-->'''Diabetus:''' by youngerme4427: "sex my favorite"\\
'''DJB:''' "Younger me?" You wrote that one, then?\\
'''Diabetus:''' Yeah. What can I say? Sex my favorite.
* {{Why Did it Have to Be S|nakes}}piders?: Diabetus, it seems. During a conversation in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow'' with a talking spider, he comments:
-->'''Diabetus:''' You know, I think I'd have a different response to this. You know what that would be?\\
'''slowbeef:''' What?\\
'''Diabetus:''' "'''''AHHHHHHH!'''''"
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Uttered by slowbeef in the first part of the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zj_fxG8kU2c Escape RP]]'' when [[KillHimAlready Dialla has Dan McNeely at gunpoint]]. Subverted by Dialla actually taking the shot.
* TheWikiRule: [[invoked]]Discussed in the VideoGame/HauntedMuseum Wrongpurae, as slowbeef is shocked to discover that the game (technically) [[http://panicmuseum.wikia.com/wiki/Panic_Museum_Wiki has its own wiki.]]
* TheWorfEffect: The first scene with the titular character in ''VideoGame/PsychoKiller'' involves the protagonist kicking him in the head, knocking his machete out of his hands.
-->'''slowbeef:''' But we beat up the killer. He's not threatening anymore. He's really more just like a Psycho Jerk.
* WorldOfPun: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]]'' was chock full of lame Bruce Willis puns. Eventually they just end up using random movie/TV show titles.
* WorthIt: Diabetus comments that [[spoiler:the head explosion]] in ''Dark Seed II'' made sitting through the game worthwhile. This also happens with some of the other games that are Wrongpuraed.
* WrongOnSoManyLevels: slowbeef's opinion of the [[MagicalComputer Busco quadnary]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVhHNVguMWo Kickstarter]].
-->'''slowbeef''': ''(livid)'' I can't even get base enough to describe why he's so ''wrong''.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: In ''Retsupurae 3000'' they explain this with "Vowels are much scarcer in TheFuture".
* YouDidntSeeThat: In LetsPlay/BillyMC's Christmas Adventure, both slowbeef and Diabetus are shocked when it seems that Billy has used a savestate to fix a mistake. They both admonish him and tell him that they'll look away ''this time''... [[note]]It was actually a strangely-placed edit.[[/note]]
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: The very first thing said in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=619onOU5ltk Guestsupurae: Erik vs. TCarreon998]]" upon seeing the [=LPer=]'s setup:
-->'''slowbeef:''' ...You're fucking kidding me, right?
** During the ''Metroid Beginings'' [sic] retsufrash, slowbeef and Diabetus log on to Newgrounds to see the review scores.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Alright, I gotta - ''Three and a half out of five!''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''*laughing*'' Where? The first one? No, wait...totally?\\
'''Diabetus:''' No, I mean, just - aggregate.\\
''*Beat*''\\
'''slowbeef:''' You're ''kidding'' me.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: in the ''VideoGame/{{Kaizo|MarioWorld}} [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Mario 64]]'' videos, they jokingly use "kaizo" an awful lot in many varying contexts. (For the record, it just means "hacked", which nobody can really deny the game in the videos ''is'', no matter how poorly.)
-->'''slowbeef:''' I like how he stole 'kaizo', like that's the ubiquitous term for bad romhacks that are more annoying to play than anything.
* YourHeadASplode: This recurring trope of slowbeef's [=LPs=] has finally made its presence in Retsupurae in the form of the Dark World counterpart of Mike Dawson's mother, serving as the ''Dark Seed II'' longplay's only SugarWiki/{{Funny|Moments}} SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* ZeroesAndOnes: Apparently, the pitchman in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVhHNVguMWo Kickstarter Nonstarters: The New Era of Modern Computing]]" not only believes in this trope, but he's convinced that those zeroes and ones are ''actual'' zeroes and ones (instead of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_code an abstract concept]]) and has based his idea of "busco quadnary" on adding two more numbers to binary. slowbeef, who has dabbled in some programming, is absolutely flabbergasted by this, and that's not even the only thing wrong with the pitch video.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Retsutalk]]
* AbsenteeActor: slowbeef is not present in Episodes 3 (or its extension, Episode 3.5), 12, and 13. Diabetus is absent in episodes 16 and 32.
** AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Episode 23 features neither slowbeef nor Diabetus, but is done by Ironicus, his fiance, and LetsPlay/ChipCheezum about [=C2E2.=]
* BadassBoast: Dave_o makes one for slowbeef when discussing how dangerous Camden, New Jersey is, complete with an action voice.
-->'''dave_o:''' slowbeef works out there.
* BaitAndSwitch: Milked for all its worth whenever there's a big issue.
* BileFascination: InUniverse, slowbeef describes himself as an ironic fan of [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]].
-->'''slowbeef:''' He never bottoms out! It's amazing!
* BlasphemousBoast: In one of the episodes where dave_o is present, he, Diabetus, and slowbeef get into talking about how they consider the [[ChurchOfHappyology Church Of Scientology]] to be a ScamReligion. It gets to this trope when dave_o suggests that [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} Joseph Smith]] beat L. Ron Hubbard to the punch.
* ButtMonkey: Proton Jon.
* TheCameo: Jeff Lupetin ([[VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}} Gillian Seed's voice actor]] provides a short intro to Episode 9.
** Josh Mandel ([[VideoGame/KingsQuest the original voice actor for King Graham]]) provides Episode 17's intro.
** LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun throws in a few words in Episode 24 via Proton Jon.
* EvilLaugh: In Episode 36, [=NorthernLion=] has a button that produces the laugh from ''Videogame/DungeonLand''.
* FantasticRacism: Toward the end of the first Dungeon World episode, Diabetus animates a statue and tells it to kill all non-humans. [[spoiler: The statue later shows up as a horrible monster, which leads to a BrickJoke that it's a metaphor for the evil of racism.]]
* FixItInPost: A running gag in Episode 8.
* FetishRetardant: [[invoked]] In Episode 78, where the duo discusses ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory'', slowbeef notices that the show's attempts to sexualize Jessica Lange is this to him, because Lange happens to look a lot like his own mother, making said attempts feel very weird and off-putting to him.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: A lot of what Dave_O says.
* TheGhost: Proteus is apparently slated to show up on the show eventually, but circumstances (including apparently becoming a father) have continuously gotten in the way of him showing up.
* HilaritySues: In Episode 15, their discussion about Sega turns into this.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: In Episode 27, the guest Tim Miller tells a short story about how he translated a ''Shinobi-X'' video into Japanese and gave the translation to a friend/editor to see if he got everything right. She was apparently quite confused by the line "ninja hand fart", among others.
* TheJerseyDevil: Dave_o theorizes that slowbeef is this in episode 8.
* LowerDeckEpisode: The "theme" of episodes 3 and 3.5, where Diabetus and General Ironicus talk about being "LP sidekicks" to slowbeef and [=ChipCheezum=] respectively.
* MadlibsCatchPhrase: It's the "''Series/BreakingBad'' of X".
* NeverSayThatAgain: slowbeef's reaction to Diabetus trying PokemonSpeak, and when Diabetus tried to impersonate Yoda.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Discussed in the case of [=DarkSydePhil=], where Diabetus says that Phil possibly plays up his ineptitude because it garners views and reactions. slowbeef however doubts it since Phil acts like that both in and out of games and that it would be fairly difficult to keep up the act all the time without some sign of slipping up.
* PoesLaw: Discussed between slowbeef and [[Webvideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Woolie]] in episode 48, where Woolie describes a point where they attempted to parody the trend of [=LPers=] relying on overexaggerated reactions only for their fans to mistake it as the real deal and calling them out for it.
* PokemonSpeak: slowbeef says "when you're drunk, repeating their names is the funniest goddamn thing ever", and Diabetus jokingly says that's how he speaks when he's drunk.
* ARareSentence: slowbeef says he has trouble believing that he's saying the phrase "LetsPlay/ProtonJon was tricked into doing a ''Super Mario World'' ROM hack LP."
* RPGEpisode: Episodes 45 & 49 consist of slowbeef, Diabetus, [=ChipCheezum=], General Ironicus, and 100 HOGS AGREE playing the game Dungeon World.
* RunningGag: Transitioning with "so there's that."
** The ''Breaking Bad'' comparisons in Episode 2, and Diabetus fixing things in post in episode 8.
** Diabetus mentioning that he'll fix or edit entire chunks of the recording out in post.
** slowbeef gushing about the SA ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' thread... and in later episodes, slowbeef complaining about how he's gotten fed up with it.
** All of the "Live from PAX" episodes begin with the duo and whoever they're with reading aloud Craigslists ads for "casual encounters."
* SamusIsAGirl: In Episode 27, Diabetus and Cherrydoom are surprised to find out that guest [=MelodicWaffle=] is a girl.
* ShoutOut: Episode 9 has a segment where slowbeef and Diabetus give shout outs to some Let's Plays on the forums that they enjoy.
** In multiple episodes, slowbeef gushes over ''VisalNovel/DanganRonpa''[[labelnote:*]]which [[InvertedTrope he eventually went back on]] due to the Website/{{Tumblr}} FanDumb ruining the SA thread for him[[/labelnote]], Diabetus over ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', and Dave_O over ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''.
** All the ''Series/BreakingBad'' references. (''Retsutalk'' is the ''Breaking Bad'' of podcasts.)
** Episode 14 is more or less slowbeef advertising ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''.
** In episode 34, Lowtax sums up his opinion on scarecam [=LPs=] with, "You'll scream to anything," in reference to the Music/DeadMilkmen song, "Instant Club Hit (You'll Dance to Anything)."
* SpecialGuest: Frequently.
** Recurring guests:
*** General Ironicus: Episodes 3, 3.5, 13, 23, 45, 49
*** [=ChipCheezum=]: Episodes 6, 13, 23, 45, 49
*** Dave_O: Episodes 4-8
*** [=ProtonJon=]: Episodes 8, 15, 24
*** Cherrydoom: Episodes 19-21, 27, 29.
** Dectilon and Phiggle in episode 12, Psychedelic Eyeball in episode 14, orenronen in episode 16, and [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] in episode 32.
** Parodied in episodes 26 and 27; [[spoiler:the "special guest" is slowbeef both times]].
** Lowtax in episode 34.
** LetsPlay/NorthernLion in episode 36.
** [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] in episode 37.
** LetsPlay/{{Supergreatfriend}} in Episode 39.
** Michael and Ray of Creator/AchievementHunter[=/=]Creator/RoosterTeeth in Episode 41.
** Woolie of Webvideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay in Episode 48. Pat in Episode 54.
** Zorak (anime/manga mod of SA) in Episode 50.
** [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling]] in episode 55.
* TakeThat: Diabetus takes a shot at Creator/JeffDunham, comparing him favorably to LetsPlay/PewDiePie, though as if he's surprised to be doing so.
** It's hard to find a podcast where they '''don't''' take at least one cheap shot at [=PewDiePie=] or [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]].
* UnPerson: In episode 8, they jokingly try to turn [=ChipCheezum=] into one of these.
* ValuesDissonance: Discussed in Episode 16 regarding how the Japanese handle {{Spoiler}}s compared to North America. Basically, spoiling something in the Japanese section of the internet blackballs the user and Japanese forums can have separate threads on a game: one where people are starting the game and one where people have finished the game and can freely reveal spoilers. [[invoked]]
* VulgarHumor: {{Discussed|Trope}} in Episode 10, where slowbeef argues that [=PewDiePie=] is overtly bringing this up in regards to [[BlackComedyRape rape]] and other vulgar jokes in a misguided attempt to be funny.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa0NpLFpw8o#t=159s Retsupurae Sonic Advance 2]], after sitting through two-and-a-half minutes of repetitive commentary about the level, Ironicus asks for the [=LPer=] to say something new. Less than 15 seconds later, he unfortunately gets his wish. [[note]]The [=LPer=] starts thinking that Eggman kidnapped Cream's mother [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty to be a sexual object]][[/note]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: During the RP of Pac Man World 2
-->'''General Ironicus:''' You have 39 lives! This is clearly a baby game for babies!
* EyeCatch: The ''Elemental Goddess'' special episode MST included one that had bad FanArt and a "Joke Fan Art" done in the Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann style by [[Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}} Peachi]].
* {{Filler}}: Remember, kids, having long videos is not the same thing as having lots of worthwhile content. Particularly evident in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxHcF9ePiQo nacho]]'', where the host is already done three minutes in, but stays in the level for ''seven more minutes'', doing ''absolutely nothing'' so he can fill up the [=YouTube=] time limit. With this in mind, it's no surprise that he's spent over a year [=LPing=] ''VideoGame/BanjoTooie''.
* FollowTheLeader
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In [=ChipCheezum's=] riff on the first episode of ''Elemental Goddess'', he makes a random joke about how much he hates Jews, followed by Ironicus telling him "we're not doing that episode yet." Flash-forward to several months later and the riff of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAVdTZBzEm4 The Special Episode]] and, well...
* FreudianSlip: Chip joked that the guy who did an LP of VideoGame/{{Pong}} was only allowed to watch news broadcasts from decades ago. After accidentally saying he had to watch ''nude'' broadcasts from decades ago.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Amazingly enough, ''{{subverted|Trope}}'' in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlC0eJ6m-1M&t=2m28s Yowie wowie!!!]]'' Justified, though, because the [[YaoiFangirl girls in question]] were {{cosplay}}ing as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto and Sasuke.]]
-->'''General Ironicus:''' This is the world's best argument against girl on girl action!\\
[...]\\
'''[=ChipCheezum=]:''' I feel ''weird'' right now! This is wrong! Usually, I'd be like "'''YEEEEAAH!'''", but right now, right now...
* LazyArtist: Chip calls out the author of The Mike Weiss Show for this.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Ironicus begins the commentary over [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLpOgT3cOP4 Retsupurae Megaman X2]] by complaining about how ''every single'' bad [=LPer=] they could find on Youtube would invariably LP a ''Franchise/MegaMan'' game alongside either ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'' or ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels''. He brings this up again a few minutes in when it turns out that the [=LPer=] is, big surprise, really bad at the game.
* RapidFireNo: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlC0eJ6m-1M&t=2m5s From]] ''Yowie wowie!'':
--> ''[[[ItMakesSenseInContext The two cosplayers]] [[FetishRetardant start making out]]]''\\
'''General Ironicus:''' And--whaAAAAAA?\\
'''[=ChipCheezum=]:''' AAGH! NO! NO! NO!
* WrittenSoundEffect: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKSDjKnsfn8 DDDDDDDDDDDDDKKKKKKKKKKKKK]]''

[[folder:[=LesBeardly=]]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: At the very end of [=LesBeardly=]'s video on Blazzerdragon (after a lengthy rant against the [=LPer=]):
--> '''''BLAZZERDRAGON''''' ...Eat a dick.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Blazzerdragon tells a story about how a lesbian friend of his slept with her brother because she thought he was his boyfriend... [[MindScrew or something.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: [=LesBeardly=]'s videos are often done with a heavy dose of SarcasmMode.
* FunWithSubtitles: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ysl_v1OJTOA "Translations for PewDiePie fans"]] has [=LesBeardly=] calming playing ''VideoGame/{{Mass Effect 3}}'', with subtitles that mock LetsPlay/PewDiePie's style of videos.
* RapidFireComedy: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsqt34CL1CM His take]] on one of {{LetsPlay/qzecwx}}'s videos (back when annotations could be added by anyone) ends up turning into this, as the voiced annotations often overlap one another.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: All over the place in "Kirsten Land".
* SarcasmBlind: From the riff on dbzisdakrunk:
--> ''(The player hits a P-Switch, causing the music to change into the famous ''VideoGame/{{Super Mario Bros|1}}'' theme)''\\
'''dbzisdakrunk:''' [[SarcasmMode I have no idea where he got that!]]\\
'''[=LesBeardly=]:''' Keep working on your sarcasm, buddy. I'm sure it'll improve with time.\\
'''Guest Commentator:''' Well, if you look at it, it's either the Mario 1 music, or--\\
'''[=LesBeardly=]:''' No, I take that back. It actually worked on his guest commentator there.
* SarcasmMode: Taken UpToEleven in the appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTTSsN0GP7 "Commander Sarcasm does a retsupurae"]].
* {{Understatement}}: The description for his video on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhW8jX_-Csk Blazzerdragon]]:
--> I don't like this guy very much.
* UnfortunateNames: "dbzisdakrunk", which Beardly refuses to say out loud.

* ContinuityLockout: [invoked] In slowbeef and Diabetus's riff on ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' (which slowbeef is playing), the two admit that he sort of tuned out on the franchise a few years back in the early videos. This means in regards to a lot of characters (particularly in Shadow's subplot) that were established from previous games, the two frequently either make guesses in regards to their importance, or are just confused.



* OncePerEpisode: If doing a ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears'' Retsupurae, Diabetus starts with a DoubleEntendre related to the game George Wood is reviewing in his best UsefulNotes/BillClinton impersonation. It gets to the point where slowbeef is completely astounded by how many Clinton jokes he can come up with, considering the subject matter:
-->"Are you ready to '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hoh_c-WRNs contend]]''' with what's in my pants?"\\
"After I play '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0iYB9FWVT8 Buster Brothers]]''' I'm gonna bust a nut!"\\
"I'll show you why they call me Big Dong '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXzxJjIXHik Donkey Kong]]'''."\\
"Look in my pants and I'll show you why they call it the '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8LFOVGUt2g Playstation]]'''."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLswUGD8kxA All Diabetus Clinton jokes archived here.]]
** The legend continues with the new playlists Retsupurae have made on Youtube, with the description for the "Gaming in the Clinton Years" playlist as:
--> "When you hit my playlist you'll always wanna select repeat, baby."
** Also, starting with the Wrongpurae of ''VideoGame/LastAlert'' (and intially meant as a one-off reference to their LP of ''[[VideoGame/DeadToRights Dead To Rights: Retribution]]'' where they did the same thing), every episode now ends with them both saying "Dead to Rights."
* OriginalCharacter: [=JacobMC=], [=BillyMC=]'s snooty older brother. He graduated from Harvard and can beat VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Black [[SelfImposedChallenge with his eyes closed.]] [[TechnologyMarchesOn He also registered Hypercam 2.]]
** There's also his cajun brother, [=BayouBillyMC=], and the "Hollywood Squares" episode introduced his sister, [=LaurenMC=].
** In the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' videos, they speculate on the existence of other music genre/medieval title combo characters in the vein of Rock Knight, such as Rap Duke and Country Squire.
* OrphanedPunchline: The final boss of VideoGame/{{Galerians}} leaves the two out of material with how it drags on, so a portion of it is cut out. When they come back slowbeef and Diabetus are talking about enemas.
* OurHeroIsDead: Jokingly.
-->'''slowbeef:''' And that's the end of Cobra...\\
'''Diabetus:''' All right.\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...[[CueCardPause Episode 5]].\\
'''Diabetus:''' Shorter let's play than usual but glad the good guys won this time.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Abused in many of the creepypastas featured on Crappy Pasta. To date, ''VideoGame/SonicExe'', ''Ihsoy'', ''Blood Whistle'', ''The Yellow Devil'' (which takes it to a ludicrous extreme with ''robots'' that bleed), the ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' story, and ''I HATE YOU'' all feature ludicrous amounts of blood.
* OverlyLongGag: The beginning of ''[[VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy Pursuit]]'', where slowbeef and Proteus get stuck in Dialla's apartment for several minutes trying to collect everything Dialla seems to think she'll need - and then immediately get sent ''right back in'' for a different plot event not thirty seconds after finally being allowed to leave.
** Diabetus drawing out an "Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..." during a particularly long stretch of nothingness in their ''Dark Seed II'' wrongpurae.
* OverusedRunningGag: Towards the end of ''Resident Seavil,'' slowbeef is annoyed at their running gag of staying quiet for the elevator sequence.
* PerverseSexualLust: In ''So there's that'', [=MageKnight404=], who [[SelfInsert inserted himself into a romhack]], reveals that he has this for [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Linoan]]. The duo react the way you'd expect.
* PetTheDog: Their interactions with [[MoralityPet BillyMC]].
** After [=RPing=] [=Joshie164=], slowbeef encouraged his fans to give the original video several likes as it only had one dislike. Three days after the RP, the original video had 1,940 likes, and many very enthusiastic comments.
** When one of Joshie's friends complained about RP mocking him, the commenters started asking him why he wasn't playing with Joshie. He said they all had lives.
-->'''lotrdude13''': Too busy to hang out with your best friend? You're not very good friends.
* PoesLaw: The guys have a little trouble with this sometimes. For instance, in ''The Marios'' they mistake a troll for an actual moron. They decide to start pre-screening videos beforehand after realizing they'd been fooled. In ''Amnesia: The Dork's Descent'', Diabetus and slowbeef argue about whether or not the [=LPer=]'s hysterical terror is staged - Diabetus is positive that it is, while slowbeef merely ''hopes'' so. The fact that the [=LPer=] in question, Jenomorph, favorited the video just hours after it was uploaded may support that theory.
** They also occasionally have trouble accepting that ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears'' was a "legitimate" video game show, as opposed to a very elaborate parody.
** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E47lUkoV4vU Let's Play Sonic the Hedgehog, but Second...]]'' features [=SuperBrosTV=] being wholly incompetent at ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' despite having extensively looked at the map of the level at the start of the video and his whole gimmick for the LP being an in-depth walkthrough. Diabetus actually asks multiple times, "is he fucking with us?" He eventually comes to the conclusion that it has to be on purpose, while slowbeef is still unsure by video's end.
** And then there was the time they [=RPed=] a video from LetsPlay/{{Critikal}}, apparently unaware that Critikal's videos are comedic/satirical, and he often intentionally plays games that are corrupted or poorly emulated. They spent much of the video complaining about the stretched screen and mocking Critikal's use of toilet humor. The video was eventually taken down after they were barraged by Critikal fans, and people informing the pair that they just took a goof video completely seriously. The condescending nature of much of that particular RP just made their mistake look even worse.
* PoliceCodeForEverything: From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=croeirrF_vk their riff on Lodge Massacre]], the SequelHook at the end features police sirens playing in the background. Diabetus imitates a cop, saying "We got a 10-53, someone's making a sequel to a bad flash game, over."
--> '''slowbeef:''' "Deadly force authorized."
* PowerTrio: slowbeef, Diabetus and Proteus, most commonly.
** slowbeef, Diabetus and Dave_O is also quite common.
** slowbeef also once suggests a team-up of [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]], [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow Jollo]], and [[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Rock Knight]].
* PreMortemOneLiner: Several really bad ones delivered by the killer in the ''VideoGame/PsychoKiller'' riff.
-->'''Morgan James:''' ...Hang up... '''forever.'''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...Seriously? Shut the fuck up.
* PrivateEyeMonologue: Diabetus does this in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnq6NP1psjQ LA Noire Retsupurae]]
* PungeonMaster: Diabetus. Referenced by Slowbeef in the ''Blood Whistle'' Crappypasta in which Peach makes a couple puns related to the way she killed some of the story's characters ("They got a little ''sharp'' with me so I pushed them over the ''edge''). After reading this, Slowbeef says to Diabetus, "She's starting to sound like you."
* PurpleProse: Several of the creepypastas they've riffed abuse this. The most notable example is ''Blood Whistle'', which starts out being written normally, then takes this trope to an absurd degree once the author finds the titular whistle.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: Their take on LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast whose accent is so exaggerated it seems fake.
** "Even ''British'' people are saying 'I can't believe how British this guy sounds.'"
*** Their [=ElectricalBeast=] retsupuraes have even created all-new English stereotypes between the group: Specifically, the English can now [[TimeTravel travel through toime]] and [[Series/DoctorWho telepor']].
* RailingKill: DoubleSubverted. Diabetus remarks that ''Crime Patrol'' didn't have one of these, only for one to happen a second later.
* SpinoffBabies: The ''Sir Basil Pike Public School'' wrongpurae videos have the title [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku263TRcScQ "Ambition Babies"]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: slowbeef gives one of these to Quadraxis14 in the [=SNES9X=] retsupurae. Here is the speech without the VerbalTic:
-->''Shut up! There are no viewers. No one watched this to the end except me. It is a seriously horrible video, Quadraxis14. [[{{Scrub}} There is no skill in]] [[SaveScumming replaying the same thing over and reloading save states over and over again]]. A monkey could do this. A kid can do this. It doesn't matter I don't know what the point of the video is. I don't know know why you're doing it. It will not make you popular in school. It will not get you girls or anything. It's a waste of time. I'm sorry. I'm taking away from 'On Liberty.'''
** The end of the RP of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is one big one against both the Critic and against fans for liking [[LargeHam his style of videos]]. Admittedly, a bulk of it is made up of ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch.
* RecursiveAcronym: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IiIcAr-8kw Let's Play Resident Evil 5: The Demo!]], the video is done by a group called E.P.I.C., which stands for '''E'''pic '''P'''wnage '''I'''n '''C'''olor.
-->'''Diabetus''': What does E.P.I.C. stand for again?\\
'''Proteus''': Epic... something, something, something.\\
'''slowbeef''': It's a recursive acronym.
* ReferenceOverdosed: The guys try to take this trope to the absolute limit in their [=RP=] of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Apocalypse]]'' dropping Creator/BruceWillis movie references (since he starred in the game) for around 20 minutes until they give up and start referencing pretty much anything from pop culture by that point.
* RescueSex: At the end of ''Ninja Hayate'', after saving the princess, Diabetus tells it as it is.
-->'''Princess:''' My hero!\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm gonna get laid, hyuh!"
* RevengeFic: The duo theorize that Mike Dawson must have done ''something'' to get Cyberdreams mad at him, considering ''Dark Seed II'' portrays him as the most obnoxious man alive who even the characters in the game can't stand.
* RomanticComedy: slowbeef theorizes, at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVgXam6YzcE Super Bummerman 2]], why musclebomber keeps saying "amy" instead of "enemy".
-->'''slowbeef:''' Amy must be like this bookworm chick who's into LetsPlay, so he's trying to get his nerdy friends to help him do one, so he chose Super Bummerman!\\
'''Diabetus:''' That sounds like the makings of the perfect teenage romantic comedy.
* RunningGag: Tons of them.
** Unregistered Hypercam 2
** When making fun of adventure games, announcing an abrupt end to character interaction with variations of "Okay, bye!"
** When a character opens their mouth ridiculously wide, Diabetus starts holding a note as if he were an opera star.
** When a character has their mouth slightly open but aren't saying anything, or when they stay seemingly frozen in place (usually accompanied with an empty stare), Diabetus gives a static "Uuuuhhhhhhnnnnnnnnnn..."
** The [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] voice, which becomes the voice of almost any reptilian enemy.
** Diabetus often lampshades the seeming inability of video game characters to speak at a distance. Even when they're standing only a few feet from each other.
-->'''King Graham addressing some thugs''': Gentlemen, please excuse me, I didn't mean to interrupt you.\\
'''One thug, standing across a counter two feet from Graham, walks around the counter to Graham.'''\\
'''Diabetus''': [...] I will come over here and we will resume this conversation.\\
'''Thug''': Da inn's full! Ain't got no more rooms.\\
'''Diabetus''': ...I had to come over here to tell you that.
** Diabetus's mentioning of different themes of music (eg. the "return the book to the library theme" in ''VideoGame/DarkSeed''), usually during games that were lucky to have a dozen songs.
** slowbeef's using a [[WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Mentok-esque]] "bweeeeee-oop" during teleportation of rapid camera movement.
** The duo tends to have a MomentOfSilence during ''VideoGame/DeepFear'''s elevator screens. slowbeef progressively gets irritated by this, even stating that [[OverusedRunningGag he's getting sick of having to keep the joke up]].
** Around the time when they started Retsutalk is when "[[Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream I have no X]], [[AndIMustScream and I must Y]]" became one of these. It eventually lead to their Wrongpurae of the game in question.
** Referring to "the Youtube Emperor" to whom they can supposedly report bad [=LPs=]. Sometimes identified with LetsPlay/DeceasedCrab.
** In the Negotiator/Ambition serious, slowbeef is repeatedly surprised that the flash games had an executive producer.
** slowbeef's [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane]] impression and Diabetus yelling from the other side of his room (presumably) whenever part of a Newgrounds review is in ALL CAPS.
** After drawn out opening credits scene, Diabetus often pretends as if they were the closing credits only for slowbeef to tell them the game hasn't started yet.
** Diabetus frequently uses a whiny "Unh!" grunt whenever a character punches or throws something.
** During the Mortal Kombat Mythologies Wrongpurae, Diabetus would occasionally say "[[{{Pun}} Sub-Zero X!]]"
** Blood, from the Crappy Pasta videos.
** In Slowbeef's playthrough of ''Afterfall: Insanity,'' exclusively using the fire ax (as well as replacing it with a new one whenever he comes across one).
** Whenever there's StuffBlowingUp, you can expect a joke or two about Creator/MichaelBay [[ADateWithRosiePalms needing some alone time]] while watching it, especially during ''Surgical Strike'' and Dahi̇r İnşaat's military videos.
** [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons "Jane, stop this crazy thing!!!"]]
** slowbeef trying to imitate a certain genre or comedy style [[AntiHumor and]] [[StylisticSuck deliberately]] [[CannotTellAJoke botching it]], such as his attempt to do a PrivateEyeMonologue in ''Noir: A Shadowy Thriller'', or how his back-and-forth [[ReferenceOverdosed movie title-dropping]] with Diabetus in ''Apocalypse'' devolved into him [[TropeName reading out the name of a movie in the middle of a sentence without context]].
* RuthlessModernPirates: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtmSY3u9CUM In this vid.]] According to slowbeef: "[[LetsPlay/SirRonLionheart He's]] like the only pirate you would never ever wanna be in your life."
** "Shiver me timbers, alriiiiight, hawhawhawww!"
* SanitySlippage:
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Retsupurae. Listening to the shift in commentary from making fun of the video to [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness outright insulting the guy who made it]], it's obvious they're suffering.
** Some videos incite giggling fits in the commentors at points later in the video. ''Earnest Evans'' is the greatest example of this, since the game simply becomes exponentially more ridiculous as time goes on.
** The 4+ hours of boredom during the ''[[VideoGame/DarkSeed Dark Seed II]]'' longplay slowly drive slowbeef ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness and]]'' Diabetus into an infuriated frenzy. The incompetence of the longplayer, [[TryEverything obsessively exploring the same areas and dialogue trees]] and sometimes even doing absolutely nothing for long stretches of time, does ''not'' help matters.
** ''King's Quest VII'' goes from boring them to death to causing them to prattle insanely in impersonations of [[Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy Joker and Bane]].
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' takes a heavy toll on both slowbeef and Diabetus.
-->'''slowbeef:''' ''[at the end of Episode 50]'' Can I just say one thing? Usually, we stop recording, we have a little, not debrief, but an aside? I have never heard you more depressed than after ''Sonic 06'' episodes. I'm not lying. After the billiard ball puzzle, we stopped recording, and you were like, "That was ''abhorrent''."
* SarcasmFailure:
** "I am sure that someone wants me to come up with something witty to say to [[http://www.viddler.com/explore/retsu/videos/108/ this guy]], but ''he is just faaaaat.''"
** Throughout their RP of VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy, Proteus is reduced from DeadpanSnarker to gibbering, {{Angrish}}-spewing wreck by the atrocious game design.
** During the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4dlwgbj7hc Mortal Kombat Mythologies]]'' Wrongpurae, Diabetus attempts to make a joke about the fire-breathing dinosaur:
-->'''Diabetus:''' I.... I'm sorry this is ridiculous.
** In the ''Altered Beast'' Wrongpurae:
-->'''Diabetus:''' This just presents a slew of pun opportunities! I don't know where to start! So I won't.
* SceneryPorn: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsPlgVgCRSo [=SnakemanMN=] Wants to Be the Guy]], slowbeef and Dave_O begin to marvel at the amazing detail of the background of I Want to Be the Guy when [=SnakemanMN=] pauses the game for two minutes to answer his phone.
-->'''Dave_O:''' You see there's purple bricks; but then there's also... hold on a second... grey ones.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Woah, you're right! I would never have noticed that if he hadn't paused the game for a full minute to pick up the phone.
* {{Scotireland}}: Diabetus and slowbeef have no idea whether the [=LPer=] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCRCJRCH8VE this video]] is Scottish or Irish, so they split the difference.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Y'know, he's probably from New Jersey.
** While watching the pilot to the VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} cartoon, slowbeef misidentifies Morrigan's [[OohMeAccentsSlipping fluctuating Scottish accent]] as Irish.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Diabetus does this to an extent in part 4 of the "I have no mouth and I must scream" wrongpurae. He is implied to have turned away from the screen during the elevator sequence.
** They get about halfway through ''VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies'' before giving up. When asked, Diabetus later said that the game got so nonsensical that they couldn't make it funny.
* SdrawkcabName: Abused to hilarious effect in ''Ihsoy'', especially with Hceap Ssecnirp.
* SelfDeprecation: In their RP of Policenauts, Diabetus comments that the only thing sadder than reviewing the game would be hacking it. slowbeef, who was working on a translation patch for the game at the time, commented "I'll sa--fuck you."
** Diabetus and his family are occasionally made the butt of jokes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5TW2PfwxMQ In the RP of Nostalgic Rage's Mario 3 LP]], they go on a tangent about if the [=LPer=] (who has a thick southern accent) is actually Diabetus' Dad. In another video, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR94fOBDFcs The self-titled "Worst Retsupurae Ever"]], Diabetus wishes the Pokemon LP would evolve into pornography, adding that he meant HUMAN porn, not Pokemon porn.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Look, I know you're from the south, and you don't understand how evolution works, but still...\\
'''Proteus:''' He's from the South, so he understands having sex with animals, but these aren't real animals.\\
'''Diabetus:''' I'm from the South, and evolution is what happens when Pokemon evolve into the Bible, right?
** Near the end of the ''Nocturnal Letters'' Retsuflash, Diabetus comes to the conclusion that the titular game was made in the South due to its terrible graphics and BrotherSisterIncest subplot.
** Proteus also mocked slowbeef for basically being responsible for most of these:
-->'''Proteus:''' This is all your fault, slowbeef.
** In the description for a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8WZMA37aZE Metroid Prime 3 Retsupurae]]
--> [[TemptingFate What could be worse than thi--]] [[http://blip.tv/file/4453432/ ...oh]]
** The "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8B5UxxX63o JOP]]" video was eventually renamed to "[[VideoGame/{{Parodius}} Jikkyu Oshaberi Parodius]] - The Only Thing Harder to Spell than Retsupurae."
* SeparateSceneStorytelling: slowbeef and Diabetus [[PlayingWithATrope play with this trope]] by acting as if the video game narrator for ''King's Quest V'' is really reading a book to his grandson. The "grandson," who the duo names Billy, then proceeds to ask questions to his grandfather about the oddness of the story.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Shows up in some of the Crappy Pastas, ''[[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/crappy-pasta-iii-hear-its-cry-6620176 Blood Whistle]]'' and ''[[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/creepypasta-live-it-wasn-t-lavender-town-6670876 It Wasn't Lavender Town]]'' in particular.
--> '''slowbeef:''' "Their only purpose in making this mod was to flagellate the naive soul to take the bait of its mysterious houris..."\\
'''Diabetus:''' Is that the mission statement behind this ROM hack, really?\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''[[{{Corpsing}} *laughing*]]'' God almighty. I need thesaurus on every single...
* ShaggyDogStory: In the ''[[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Cobra]]'' wrongpurae, slowbeef and Diabetus sit through seven hours of the titular character's space adventures, only for it to end with a hurried sequence of events that the pair summarize thusly:
-->'''slowbeef:''' [[spoiler:Your two sisters died for a weapon I just shot...!]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' Well, that was all pretty pointless, wasn't it?
* ShockSite: slowbeef's [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity interpretation]][[invoked]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmXVjSJ72yU&list=UU7UdKZ9ujF1sFlP93dfjMgA NO GIRLS ALLOWED]].
* ShoutOut: Quite a few, including ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KT64t2ITuM No Hope]]'', which quickly turned into our boys systematically running through every single line from ''Franchise/StarWars'' that had been subject to MemeticMutation.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5evl89KsmLM The first Wrongpurae of]] ''VideoGame/EvilZone'' has a ton of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' references, due to the fact that the longplayer's selected character has [[Creator/PaulEiding Colonel Campbell's voice]] - complete with playing the music from [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Arsenal Gear]] during an intermission when they had to re-sync their audio.
** In the Retsufrash of the Newgrounds game, Fractured, after commenting that the messages in the game sound like fortune cookies, he bets that the next one will say, [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife "Bad luck and misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity."]]
** Diabetus has thrown in the occasional inexplicit ''Series/DoctorWho'' reference.
** Retsupurae's official video playlist for the ''[[Creator/ZapDramatic Ambition]]'' series is subtitled [[Theatre/HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying How To Succeed in Flash Without Really Trying]].
** The titles of their ''VideoGame/AloneInTheDark'' wrongpuraes are all {{Pun}}s based on other media: ''[[VideoGame/HeavyRain The Origami Thriller]]'', ''[[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Pirates of the Carnby-ean]]'' and ''[[Film/CowboysAndAliens Cowboys vs. Polygons]]''.
*** Ditto with ''[[VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream I Have No Game, And I Must Play]]'', which uses a different pun for each part's subtitle: ''[[Film/WeekendAtBernies Weekend at Bennie's]]'', ''[[Film/BetterOffDead Better Off Ted]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH The Secret of Nimdok]]'', ''[[Series/{{Ellen}} The Ellen Show]]'', ''[[Film/FindingForrester Finding Gorrister]]'' and ''[[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs The Silence of the AMs]]''.
** Upon hearing the accent of the player in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6OVduqiHN0 Where in time is Mario?]]'', Diabetus claims that the "problem" he mentions in the first few seconds is "he was out [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill gettin' propane]]".
* SincerityMode: The pair chose to ''apologize'' to Rijno, LetsPlay/BillyMC, and even [[WebVideo/TheIrateGamer Chris Bores]] upon watching WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's attempt a Let's Play. They repeatedly said that they weren't kidding.
-->'''slowbeef:''' This is the September 11th of Let's Play.
** Later on his Formspring account, slowbeef actually said he ''owed Doug Walker an apology'' after watching LetsPlay/PewDiePie.
** Later on, he claimed Tobuscus was even worse than [=PewDiePie=]; in the Retsutalk after "Adults React To [=PewDiePie=]" he apologized and retracted the statement (though he maintains the opinion that Tobuscus is ''almost'' as bad).
** In [[http://www.formspring.me/effinslowbeef/q/423617876755243818 this Formspring post]], slowbeef offered an apology to [=QueenieZ=] upon hearing that she apparently still receives hate mail and death threats over her Eternal Darkness [=LP=].
** A bit more than halfway through [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5ln7sK_5mo "Local Paperboy Calls It Quits!,"]] Diabetus briefly interrupts the riff in order to alleviate Billy's concerns that some of his retsupurae-based viewers don't actually like him:
-->'''Diabetus:''' No one dislikes you, Billy! Like, seriously, unironically, I'm saying that: No one dislikes you.\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...It's ''possible'' that someone dislikes him--\\
'''Diabetus:''' [[HeartwarmingMoments No it's not! No, it's not.]]
** During the Retsufrash of Exmortis, after going through another incredibly long journal, they suggest that the creator write novels or short stories.
** Despite spending most of ''VideoGame/{{Harvester}}'' RP poking fun at the game, they admitted that [[spoiler:the simulation being representative of violent video games]] was interesting social commentary.
** About halfway through part 3 of ''Cobra 3D'', the duo point out just how little effort seems to have been put into the game by apologizing to [=OmegaEdge29=] for making fun of his ''Kaizo Mario 64'' romhack's similar lack of effort.
** [[invoked]]slowbeef admits that the TimeTravel rules used by ''VideoGame/ShadowOfDestiny'' [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot have potential]], but gets weighed down by [[MoonLogicPuzzle the obtuse puzzle design]] and [[IdiotHero Eike's decision-making]].
* ShootingSuperman: Brought up in ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'', when Cobra fights a man made of nigh-indestructible glass.
-->'''slowbeef:''' They're having a fist fight? He's made of fuckin' crystal!
* SimilarlyNamedWorks:[[invoked]] In "Retsufrash is Art", slowbeef and Diabetus watch a playthrough of the ugolegend Flash ArtGame "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/576095 Loneliness]]" but read the [[FanDumb user comments]] from the unrelated ArtGame "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/548694 Loneliness.]]" [[FailedASpotCheck without realizing their mistake]].
* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]]slowbeef has this reaction to ''VideoGame/ShadowWarOfSuccession''. In a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZAWAqyjedo very]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuCT7CuEIz0 intense]] way.
-->'''slowbeef:''' I have to get a UsefulNotes/ThreeDOInteractiveMultiplayer [[UsefulNotes/{{Emulation}} emulator]] tonight!
** Ditto with Diabetus and ''VideoGame/{{Growl}}''.
--->'''Diabetus:''' (after seeing the AttractMode flashing the "INSERT COIN" text) I would have inserted my entire ''wallet'' at this point.
* SoBadItsHorrible: [[invoked]]Diabetus ends up sharing slowbeef's sentiment towards ''Arise 4'' by the end of the video.
* SoundEffectBleep: Abused horribly (or possibly [[SoBadItsGood hilariously]]) in Raven Rage's LetsPlay of [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 Super Mario Brothers 3]]. The effects used to haphazardly censor his profanity included an [[MostAnnoyingSound obnoxiously loud bleep, an obnoxiously loud siren, farting and belching noises, and shattering glass]]. This was riffed on mercilessly in the commentary:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "You guys got somethin' other than glass breakin' and fartin'? ...Think I got a siren."\\
'''Proteus:''' "I don't know, let me see what I can get on freesoundeffects.com."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm gonna behead a chicken, you got one of them Yak Bak machines?"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSugkuzwpBM Test Your Mig--oh it's over]]" features a random, TV-style bleep in the middle of the source video. The duo makes fun of this both when it happens and in the post commentary.
* SoundtrackDissonance:
** ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' doesn't have that many music tracks, resulting in some wildly inappropriate music at times. Of course slowbeef points this out at every opportunity
** The soundtrack of ''VideoGame/DeepFear'', which is actually quite good, is spoiled by the dullness of the situation.
** The source video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm2rhVIZkxI OH YES I AM DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS]]" uses "Decadence" by Music/{{Disturbed}}[[note]]The riff video uses different music for copyright reasons[[/note]] as background music for an LP of ''a Website/{{Facebook}} anime-style profile picture application.'' The duo pretends to be {{otaku}} who [[MundaneMadeAwesome think this is awesome]].
--> '''Diabetus:''' This music doesn't fit with what's going on at all!!
** The sudden metal music at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ9Vt1yVVko "Mario Dies at the End"]] catches them both off guard and brings slowbeef to hysterics.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUWqitoyzSY Final Zone 2 Part 2]]" opens with Round 4 of ''Final Zone II'' as Momoko Ring, in which what sounds like the pop song opening theme of an anime plays in the background. In a [[TopDownView top-down]] military [[ShootEmUp shooter]]. The riffers joke that the soundtrack was composed before ''the game's genre'' was finalized.
--> '''slowbeef:''' This is so not appropriate for the action!\\
'''Diabetus:''' It's what she's listening to in her ears. It gets her into the killing mood!\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''Final Zone II: Shit Just Happens and Then I Don't Know What.''\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''Final Zone II: Our Website/{{Pandora}} Is ''Really'' Broken.''
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]], they tell so many bad puns that it becomes so unfunny, that it's funny.
-->'''slowbeef:''' [[LampshadeHanging Would anyone find this [video] funny besides us?]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' I think they tuned out a long time ago.
* SpaceX: Diabetus makes a big deal about the "Space" part of ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' and the two of them prefix random things with "space" and talk about how things are the way they are [[RecycledInSpace because it's space]].
** In ''Retsupurae 3000'', everything is Cyber-X...[[RunningGag because it's]] TheFuture.
* SpinOff: ''Webcam Ward'', a video series on Website/SomethingAwful with slowbeef and Khad (Diabetus took Khad's place from ''When Fur is Rubbed the Wrong Way'' on) commentating on various other Youtube videos.
* SpoilerOpening: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUgBMSwE050 PTSD: Pokemon Traumatic Stress Disorder]] is an RP of a ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' LP that consists of a failed attempt to get through a dungeon, preceded by a minute and a half of anime music playing over clips that spoil every plot twist in the game after that point.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[http://twitpic.com/s4ll9 This picture sums their opinion up]]
* StealthInsult: During the credits of ''VideoGames/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', slowbeef and Diabetus notice that Roberta Williams was credited as a "[[HarpingOnAboutHarpies Harpy]]" and a "[[YouDirtyRat Rat]]", and assumed that the game was insulting its very own creator.
* StealthPun: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvhbgPeD4cc this]] vid, Diabetus suggests that instead of hanging out with Solar Man and getting blazed, he and slowbeef should simply chill, man. Just chill, man. [[spoiler:Chill Man is the Robot Master [[ElementalRockPaperScissors weak to Solar Blaze]] in ''Mega Man 10'']].
** Another, less subtle one shows up in the "Let's Rock Out" video with Diabetus commenting "I wonder how long he had to Music/{{Muse}} over the song choice before he felt ready." The LP was of Knights of Cydonia, a song by the band.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: The "Meet 'N' Fuck Kingdom" video has all the sex scenes censored out, with the player adding in text lying about what the character was doing.
-->'''Narration:''' And then they drank tea. They certainly didn't engage in six incredibly frustrating, boring, and shameful sexual mini-games that were so needlessly complex, these three girls are essentially the final bosses of Meet n' Fuck Kingdom. Nope.
* SweetHomeAlabama: Diabetus is from Alabama, and has the Southern Hospitality trait down to a tee with his more deadpan sense of humour and stoicism. During the State Flag round in ''"What is Madmatty Thinking?" "Correctl!"'' he immediately recognizes the Alabama flag from a vague written description, without even seeing it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:T - Z]]
* TakeAThirdOption: Demonstrated in this exchange
-->'''slowbeef:''': Maybe [[LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast he]] was playing VideoGame/ChronoTrigger and doesn't realize when one game ends and the other begins?\\
'''Diabetus:''': Nah, I think he's just crazy.\\
{{Beat}}\\
'''slowbeef:''' Can't it be both?
* TakeYourTime: They repeatedly mock ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'' for this. "King Graham, the ''forgetful'' adventurer".
* TemptingFate:
** In their ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' Retsupurae:
-->'''slowbeef:''' Okay, this is VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}. So there's no fucking way you have a UsefulNotes/BillClinton joke.\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''(In faux-Clinton accent)'' "I'll show you something that's [[HumongousMecha Weltall]]."\\
''[{{Beat}}]''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''(Astounded)'' Shit...\\
'''Diabetus:''' Sorry.
** Also, in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3v5AMNjH8M Most Shameful Thing In The World]] Retsupurae:
-->'''Diabetus:''' With the amount of dignity lost, I don't see how this could possibly get any... ''*RecordNeedleScratch*'' [[DancingTheme ...worse?]]
** In Let's Point at Super Metroid: "I propose this video cannot get worse from this moment. Seriously." Somehow, it did.
** In [=MageKnight404=]'s Let's Play of Pokemon White:
-->'''[=MageKnight=]:''' So thanks for watching us play Pokemon White.\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''(In fake Hilda voice)'' "Who are you talking to?"\\
'''[=MageKnight=]:''' ''(In '''his''' Hilda voice)'' "Wait, who are you talking to?"\\
'''slowbeef:''' Oh god.\\
'''Diabetus:''' Really?
** During the ''Escape'' RP:
-->'''slowbeef:''' Now to solve this puzzle tout suite. ''(Places sink handle on faucet and turns it on.)'' First we turn on the water...\\
'''Proteus:''' This might be the least retarded solution for any puzzle in this game yet.\\
'''slowbeef:''' And we're going to stop up the water with the ''silver coin''...\\
'''Proteus:''' Never mind, spoke too soon...
** During the Arise 4 RF, slowbeef mentions the how easy it is to accidentally click off a window during the game's awful combat sections, while he's fighting one of the enemies. No points for guessing what he does almost immediately afterwards.
** Invoked during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbVKL-Meo0 "Adults React To PewDiePie"]]:
-->'''slowbeef:''' *Sigh* Y'know, maybe I'm making to much of this, maybe it's not that bad. I'm sure it has some appeal and there's probably nothing that terrible in these videos I mean you know--\\
'''LetsPlay/PewDiePie:''' Look! He's raping her, he's raping her!\\
'''slowbeef:''' I'm sorry, what was that?
** After the end of the mission in ''VideoGame/SurgicalStrike,'' the protagonist goes to a tropical island to vacation with some bikini babes. DJB responds to this with "It'd be great if these beach girls [[RunningGag just started]] [[StuffBlowingUp exploding.]]" [[spoiler:They immediately do, courtesy of Kabul.]]
** Near the end of ''VideoGame/DraculaUnleashed'', Diabetus mock protagonist Alexander's inability to protect anyone by commenting that he would come back into the house where his fiance is in along with Van Helsing and find it swarming with vampires. [[spoiler:He does.]]
** Slowbeef's sarcastic declaration of "All hail Shadow!" during parts 40 and 41 of his Sonic '06 wrongpurae becomes a delicious case of [[IncrediblyLamePun foreshadowing]] when the game starts singing those very words ''sincerely'' during Shadow's credit song.
** Speaking of Sonic '06, the very first thing Diabetus says in the first part of the saga is "Will it explode your Playstation 3?". Sure enough, halfway through the game Slowbeef's [=PS3=] went kaput.
** Diabetus seems to have developed clairvoyance for imminent silliness. From their RP of Metroid: Other M's theater mode:
-->'''Diabetus:''' If only grappling was authorized...\\
'''Adam [in game]:''' Samus, use of the Grapple Beam is authorized!\\
''Hilarity ensues''
** During "[[https://youtu.be/TM4tmIGV6QU?t=290 Assjoe's Silent Hill]]", Mr. DJB notes that he feels that they're "not at risk", no matter what they do, because there are no forests to eat them (in reference to the two [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSWLa0ib8LU "Fog"]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOaBogxfdDk games]] the group tackled earlier in the stream). slowbeef enters a room that the game notes a "nasty smell" is coming from as he's saying this, and five seconds later a jumpscare kills him.
* ThatCameOutWrong: During the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "They call me The Fister!" ...Oh, shit, wait, I didn't mean that.
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Invoked. In ''Worst Retsupurae Ever'', slowbeef remarks on the laziness of the Pokemon animators, saying "They won't care, they already spent their 100 yen!" Later the guys are joking about Kabuto:
-->'''Proteus:''' What the fuck is a Kabuto? Isn't that that weird kind of Japanese theater where they get all- paint on their face and shit?\\
'''slowbeef:''' It might as well be.\\
'''Proteus:''' I know somebody's going to leave a fuckin' comment, by the way, that goes, "no you're thinking of Kabuki", so shut up, fuck you, don't even do it.\\
'''slowbeef:''' It's the same person who's gonna go, "You know, slowbeef, 100 yen's really not a lot of money."\\
'''Proteus:''' You know, I hope somebody actually put that fucking comment in before they watched the rest of the video.\\
'''slowbeef:''' They're gonna fuckin' delete it now, I know.\\
'''Proteus:''' You're gonna see like 27 comments have been deleted.
** The "That's So Kaizo!" videos gave us this gem:
--->'''slowbeef:''' Now maybe I'll two-star this video instead...I know someone in the comments is gonna say the stupid thing--alright, fine, thumbs down, or whatever they do on Website/YouTube.\\
'''Diabetus:''' Middle finger, actually.
** [[spoiler:Deliberately invoked]] in the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSd-9ZVbZA4 Huzzah!]]'' video.
** As the Wrongpurae of the ''Jurassic Park'' arcade game draws to a close, slowbeef realizes he's been referring to the Triceratops as a Stegosaurus for the entire game, and suspects everyone will leave comments to correct him. They did.
* ThanksgivingEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S1OXJSVfww "A Retsupurae Thanksgiving"]]
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: In the animation [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTosXPd9oJU Refund]], the character screams in a monotone "BITCH, GET THE FUCK OFF ME. DIE, BITCH, DIE. GO TO HELL, YOU LITTLE BITCH, DIE." Later in the video, it provoked the following discussion.
-->'''slowbeef:''' I-- maybe it was, like, how to get a refund... Like, "Don't be afraid to take back your pumpkins."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "This is an example of a defective product. Here's what you should do in this situation, ''bitch.''"
** They also did it before that.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Why didn't he just put a text that said ''I WAS DISPLEASED'' and save yourself some artwork, there?\\
'''Diabetus:''' "''MY SHOPPING EXPERIENCE WAS SUBPAR''."\\
'''slowbeef:''' "''Bitch''."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "Die."
** From the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-r6r2YALn0 Zelda]] video: "I like to throw in curses every so often, bitch."
** Abused by the [=LPer=] in slowbeef and @Voidburger's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is96HGUJWWA Mario Combat]] riff. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdXS-SWJ2aY Diabetus mentions that]] he and the "faggot"-spewing kid from "GOD HATES POOCHYENAS" would probably get along well.
* TitleDrop: In their ''VideoGame/{{T|heTrappedTrilogy}}rapped'' Retsuflash:
-->'''Narration:''' Why do I feel so... trapped?\\
'''Proteus:''' Oh, I see what you did there.\\
'''slowbeef:''' I can't believe that they actually did that.
** Later, during the third game of the series they throw in forced title drops to all three games in the series--Trapped, Pursuit and Escape--in immediate succession.
-->'''Dialla:''' Why do I feel so... trapped?\\
'''slowbeef:''' "W-''why do I feel so trapped?!''"\\
'''Proteus:''' I feel ''trapped''! Trapped in this ''pursuit''--\\
'''both:''' --and I have to ''escape''!
** Strangely averted in the Satanorium Retsufrash (one would expect a Newgrounds game with a title like that to be dropping it at every punctuation mark), which causes slowbeef to repeatedly mispronounce it as "sanatorium."
* TogetherInDeath: Joked about in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2ocE19YWhs Jack Slate's First Day on the Force]]" when a ''VideoGame/CrimePatrol'' {{mook}} dies clutching a box in a warehouse.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Aww, he was in love with that box.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Now they can be together forever!
* ToiletHumor: A RunningGag in their ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheDragon'' Wrongpurae involved the inexplicable fart noises the machines made. A door in the dark world of ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'' had a similar sound effect that they commented on as well.
** Their riff on ''VideoGame/DeepFear'' had a few fart jokes due to bubbles occasionally appearing behind John Mayor in underwater sections and a theory about air grenades. In part 3 of the wrongpurae, slowbeef brings up an anecdote about someone in his office who is apparently such a GassHole it affects other people's productivity.
* TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buUM916QRJk A Day in the Life of DarkSydePhil]] parodies Phil's inability to perform basic actions in games as well as his tendency to blame said games for his own incompetence by applying the same thing to real life actions such as starting up a car, unlocking an [=iPad=] or even eating pasta with a fork.
* {{Troll}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVGFkA5zjso "The Marios"]], which they discover that the [=LP=] was intentionally made to be horrible. The total derailment of their commentary is hilarious.
** There was another troll video RP at one point. It was an absolutely atrocious ''Super Mario Bros. 64'' LP by "[=SuperCrazyHealthBar=]", but this time, when slowbeef and Diabetus realized that he made it intentionally bad to be RP'd, they immediately privitized and cut all ties to it. It's a shame too, since it was a pretty good riffing (though it's been mirrored [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGRsUELHzyM here]]). It was mostly likely taken down because, while "The Marios" was [[SoBadItsGood cleverly done and entertaining to watch on its own]], the Mario 64 LP went on for ''over thirty'' videos, all of which were nigh-impossible to watch due to the horrific screechy audio.
-->'''slowbeef:''' It seems like it's a troll, except it went on for 33 videos. Like, he thought this was really funny.\\
'''Diabetus:''' [[TemptingFate No one carries on a joke that long.]]
* {{Troperiffic}}: How slowbeef and Diabetus describe Jimmy from ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'', very nearly right down to the name:
-->'''Diabetus:''' I'm sure the guy who calls himself 'the local wiseguy' is, in fact, the local wiseguy.\\
'''slowbeef:''' "By the way, I'm quote-unquote '[[TheMafia mobbed up]]'!"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm a bit of a '[[CowboyCop loose cannon]]', they would say!"\\
'''slowbeef:''' "If you've ever seen ''Series/TheSopranos'', maybe? I'm like the guy on DVD 2"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "[[ShoutOut You'll find me all over]] Wiki/{{TV Tropes}}!"
** Upon watching the intro movie to ''VideoGame/EvilZone,'' they deduce that the game will feature just about every {{anime trope|s}} possible. Their hypothesis turns out to be more or less accurate.
* {{Understatement}}: [[invoked]]slowbeef's response to reading [=BearPigMan=]'s message regarding the "difficulty" of ''Paradigm Shift'': "So this looks like an annoying game to play."
* TheUnfavorite: [=BillyMC=], whose older brother, [=JacobMC=], is much more liked by his parents. To the point where Billy's Christmas present is two [=McDonald's=] French Fries that a hobo rubbed on his armpits. And the dog ate one. "You got [=JacobMC=] an Xbox 360!" "Well he's much better at Mario than you, and he's a Harvard graduate."
** Conveniently enough, there is a [[http://www.youtube.com/jacobmc jacobmc channel]] on Youtube which contains a few regular videos. Nevertheless, every comment section of his videos and profile is filled with avid [=BillyMC=] supporters yelling their abuse at the inactive Jacob.
* UnfortunateImplications: InUniverse.
** They basically have a field day with ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'''s many, ''many'' sexist implications. They're also quite disturbed at the blatant Freudian symbolism.
** ''VideoGame/JackOrlando'''s attempt to use DeliberateValuesDissonance to show the homophobic and racist bigotry of 1930's America backfires since much of that dialogue is coming from the mouth of the [[{{Jerkass}} already-unlikable player character]]. It just makes slowbeef and Diabetus hate him even more.[[invoked]]
--->'''Diabetus''': It's rare that you want to root ''against'' the hero of the story, but here we are! I'd like Jack to be in prison for a long time.
* UnfortunateNames:
** Diabetus' real name is apparently John Assfucker.
** Hammerbolt Joe and Crystal Boy, from the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Is this supposed to make me afraid of Crystal Boy? Because his name is still Crystal Boy.
** ''Soldier Boyz'' has squad members Butts, Lamb and Brophy.
** At the start of the ''VideoGame/HopkinsFBI'' wrongpurae, Mr. DJB giggles at [[BigBad Bernie Berkson]]'s name, but quickly takes it back once he realized [[NukeEm what Bernie did]].
* UnusualEuphemism: Alexander's "Magic Map" in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVI''.
--->'''Narrator:''' Alexander pulls out his "Magic Map".\\
'''Diabetus:''' Yeah, that's a euphemism if I've ever heard one.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Every time he says that, I'm expecting something horrible!
* VerbalTic: A few forced examples as part of a gag:
-->''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt2uyDqbA-Q Second Kaizo Mario World Retsupurae]]'': [=SNES9X=]\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vms1rY9gmZw I Wanna Be The Guy Retsupurae]]'': Please Stop Let's Playing I Wanna Be The Guy\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8d1zkUusqY Battletoads Retsupurae, with 007's shyer, nerdier brother.]]'': Battletoads. Battletoads. BATTLETOADS. Battletoads.
** Diabetus ''really'' likes to say "Battletoads", by the way - he does it several times completely unprompted during both his ''Battletoads'' [=LPs=] and his MST of the ''Battletoads'' pilot.
** As mentioned above, slowbeef demonstrated in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6a4y1axHsk "Resident Seavil 2"]] that his habit of narrating illogical or abrupt story transitions with "MeanwhileBackAtThe" is more deep-seated than he realized when he unsuccessfully attempted to not say it throughout the whole video.
** slowbeef says "y'know?" or "know what I mean?" almost constantly in the middle of casual conversation, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlCdP5amh50 during Retsutalk.]]
* ViewersAreMorons: Justified in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyK3UNb4I80 Nightmare House]]'' where the solution to a puzzle is blatantly told to you on a nearby note, due to it being another MoonLogicPuzzle. Which kind of defeats the purpose.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Now, seriously--you remade the game and you kept these shit puzzles in? Like, you had the whole opportunity!\\
'''General Ironicus:''' It would be really clever and keep people out if he didn't just tape the instructions to the wall right next to it.
** Pointed out in the Cobra Wrongupurae when the game showed a flashback to something right after the game told Cobra what had happened.
-->'''Diabetus''': You had to flash back to this? How stupid do you think we are!?
* ViolationOfCommonSense: In Arrival in Hell, slowbeef and Diabetus have to kill a demon (with ''burning flesh'') - by attacking it with a ''[[AerosolFlamethrower deodorant flamethrower]]''.
--> '''slowbeef:''' We use the matches with the deodorant to get a flamethrower, to kill the beast with the ''burning flesh''!
* VisualPun: In "A Day in the Life of [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]]", one scene has Psychedelic Eyeball draw a dog with two floppy ears. As in floppy disks.
* WhamLine: From "The Marios":
-->'''Luwiigi Master:''' *laughter* Oh my God, I'm sorry, people, it's just that I keep thinking about all these other Let's Players who, like, got made fun of by Retsupurae...\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''[[OhCrap Aww, shit!]] *commentary proceeds to derail entirely*''
** And another from "So there's that":
--> '''[[SelfInsert Raymond:]]''' [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Linoan]], I love you.
** A few days earlier than "The Marios" comes this example from "Huzzah!":
-->'''slowbeef:''' So, I know we were gonna wait until the 9 minute mark, but, um... I-I thi-I think they've seen enough. [[spoiler:Should we tell 'em?]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' I... Yeah, I- I think; we can't keep this up any longer.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Yeah, uh, [[spoiler:we actually haven't been watching any video. We're gonna splice this right over ''any'' one of [=DeceasedCrab=]'s videos.]]
** Duke Crabtree's immortal line from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVlt_F62Pao&list=PLo4M1tlpv9ruM7k2Pr_0auqL8IveRE5gl#t=3284 the final chapter of]] ''[[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLo4M1tlpv9ruM7k2Pr_0auqL8IveRE5gl Ambition]]'': [[spoiler:"Because I'm a terrorist!"]]
** After spending [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHX0loqttHw the entire video]] listening to George Wood's contradictory schizophrenic ramblings about [[VideoGame/ToyStory the Toy Story game]], he makes one comment that genuinely shocks Slowbeef and Diabetus:
--->'''George Wood''': Bottom line, when all is said and done, [[spoiler:''Toy Story'' has better gameplay than either of the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' games]].
--->'''slowbeef / Diabetus''': [[FreakOut WAIT, WHAT?!]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Diabetus gave slowbeef a big one after slowbeef deliberately withheld the Holocaust and rape plot points from him during their riff of ''I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream'', since it resulted in Diabetus accidentally making a ''lot'' of [[DudeNotFunny bad jokes]].
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: According to slowbeef, he and Diabetus got drunk and woke up to find that they had recorded an hour and a half retsupurae on an LP of ''VideoGame/LastAlert'' with no player commentary.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: [[invoked]] [[InUniverse Basically the entire point]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq1uiYXWIGY this video]], where slowbeef and [=TieTuesday=] poke fun at a Fun Kids Smile [[WebAnimation web cartoon]] that uses [[UsefulNotes/{{Plagiarism}} plagiarized Disney characters]] and "jokes" about DomesticAbuse, sex and ToiletHumor. Even worse, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5If1ZWfNoJM there's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnsyFyLcqj8 more]].
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Their reaction to the inexplicable voice of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9w88AnisKvM BlazeDragon132]].
** There's also this little tidbit:
-->'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAMlb7geKV8 Goldskarr:]]''' Actually, I remember playing [''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''] on the Super 'Tendo...\\
'''Diabetus:''' ...The Super '''Tendo'''?\\
'''slowbeef:''' What the hell accent is that?\\
'''Diabetus:''' Uh, a drunk British person trying to sound American?\\
'''slowbeef:''' Sounds to me like an American who burned his tongue on soup trying to sound British.
** They also have trouble with the main character's accent in Arrival in Hell. They eventually conclude that he's Australian.
** Most viewers' reaction to [=PsychedelicEyeball=]'s accent. [[note]]He's French Canadian, if you're wondering.[[/note]]
** Their reaction to Mrs. Ramirez in the Wrongpurae of ''[[VideoGame/DarkSeed Dark Seed II]]''. They eventually narrow it down from "European Mish-Mash" to "Vaguely Irish/Swedish", but have definitely ruled out any sort of Hispanic accent.
** With Chip and Ironicus, one of their targets was [=Cauchemar89=], who apparently had an Swiss German accent; one that was quite bizzare to them, to the point of making 'Skaetbord Skampurr' a running gag throughout the video, similar to above examples.
* WhosOnFirst: In "Mass Erect", DJB jokingly interprets Diabetus reading a review by "youngerme" to mean that Diabetus was claiming to have written the review in the past:
-->'''Diabetus:''' by youngerme4427: "sex my favorite"\\
'''DJB:''' "Younger me?" You wrote that one, then?\\
'''Diabetus:''' Yeah. What can I say? Sex my favorite.
* {{Why Did it Have to Be S|nakes}}piders?: Diabetus, it seems. During a conversation in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow'' with a talking spider, he comments:
-->'''Diabetus:''' You know, I think I'd have a different response to this. You know what that would be?\\
'''slowbeef:''' What?\\
'''Diabetus:''' "'''''AHHHHHHH!'''''"
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Uttered by slowbeef in the first part of the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zj_fxG8kU2c Escape RP]]'' when [[KillHimAlready Dialla has Dan McNeely at gunpoint]]. Subverted by Dialla actually taking the shot.
* TheWikiRule: [[invoked]]Discussed in the VideoGame/HauntedMuseum Wrongpurae, as slowbeef is shocked to discover that the game (technically) [[http://panicmuseum.wikia.com/wiki/Panic_Museum_Wiki has its own wiki.]]
* TheWorfEffect: The first scene with the titular character in ''VideoGame/PsychoKiller'' involves the protagonist kicking him in the head, knocking his machete out of his hands.
-->'''slowbeef:''' But we beat up the killer. He's not threatening anymore. He's really more just like a Psycho Jerk.
* WorldOfPun: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]]'' was chock full of lame Bruce Willis puns. Eventually they just end up using random movie/TV show titles.
* WorthIt: Diabetus comments that [[spoiler:the head explosion]] in ''Dark Seed II'' made sitting through the game worthwhile. This also happens with some of the other games that are Wrongpuraed.
* WrongOnSoManyLevels: slowbeef's opinion of the [[MagicalComputer Busco quadnary]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVhHNVguMWo Kickstarter]].
-->'''slowbeef''': ''(livid)'' I can't even get base enough to describe why he's so ''wrong''.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: In ''Retsupurae 3000'' they explain this with "Vowels are much scarcer in TheFuture".
* YouDidntSeeThat: In LetsPlay/BillyMC's Christmas Adventure, both slowbeef and Diabetus are shocked when it seems that Billy has used a savestate to fix a mistake. They both admonish him and tell him that they'll look away ''this time''... [[note]]It was actually a strangely-placed edit.[[/note]]
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: The very first thing said in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=619onOU5ltk Guestsupurae: Erik vs. TCarreon998]]" upon seeing the [=LPer=]'s setup:
-->'''slowbeef:''' ...You're fucking kidding me, right?
** During the ''Metroid Beginings'' [sic] retsufrash, slowbeef and Diabetus log on to Newgrounds to see the review scores.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Alright, I gotta - ''Three and a half out of five!''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''*laughing*'' Where? The first one? No, wait...totally?\\
'''Diabetus:''' No, I mean, just - aggregate.\\
''*Beat*''\\
'''slowbeef:''' You're ''kidding'' me.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: in the ''VideoGame/{{Kaizo|MarioWorld}} [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Mario 64]]'' videos, they jokingly use "kaizo" an awful lot in many varying contexts. (For the record, it just means "hacked", which nobody can really deny the game in the videos ''is'', no matter how poorly.)
-->'''slowbeef:''' I like how he stole 'kaizo', like that's the ubiquitous term for bad romhacks that are more annoying to play than anything.
* YourHeadASplode: This recurring trope of slowbeef's [=LPs=] has finally made its presence in Retsupurae in the form of the Dark World counterpart of Mike Dawson's mother, serving as the ''Dark Seed II'' longplay's only SugarWiki/{{Funny|Moments}} SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* ZeroesAndOnes: Apparently, the pitchman in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVhHNVguMWo Kickstarter Nonstarters: The New Era of Modern Computing]]" not only believes in this trope, but he's convinced that those zeroes and ones are ''actual'' zeroes and ones (instead of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_code an abstract concept]]) and has based his idea of "busco quadnary" on adding two more numbers to binary. slowbeef, who has dabbled in some programming, is absolutely flabbergasted by this, and that's not even the only thing wrong with the pitch video.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Retsutalk]]
* AbsenteeActor: slowbeef is not present in Episodes 3 (or its extension, Episode 3.5), 12, and 13. Diabetus is absent in episodes 16 and 32.
** AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Episode 23 features neither slowbeef nor Diabetus, but is done by Ironicus, his fiance, and LetsPlay/ChipCheezum about [=C2E2.=]
* BadassBoast: Dave_o makes one for slowbeef when discussing how dangerous Camden, New Jersey is, complete with an action voice.
-->'''dave_o:''' slowbeef works out there.
* BaitAndSwitch: Milked for all its worth whenever there's a big issue.
* BileFascination: InUniverse, slowbeef describes himself as an ironic fan of [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]].
-->'''slowbeef:''' He never bottoms out! It's amazing!
* BlasphemousBoast: In one of the episodes where dave_o is present, he, Diabetus, and slowbeef get into talking about how they consider the [[ChurchOfHappyology Church Of Scientology]] to be a ScamReligion. It gets to this trope when dave_o suggests that [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} Joseph Smith]] beat L. Ron Hubbard to the punch.
* ButtMonkey: Proton Jon.
* TheCameo: Jeff Lupetin ([[VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}} Gillian Seed's voice actor]] provides a short intro to Episode 9.
** Josh Mandel ([[VideoGame/KingsQuest the original voice actor for King Graham]]) provides Episode 17's intro.
** LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun throws in a few words in Episode 24 via Proton Jon.
* EvilLaugh: In Episode 36, [=NorthernLion=] has a button that produces the laugh from ''Videogame/DungeonLand''.
* FantasticRacism: Toward the end of the first Dungeon World episode, Diabetus animates a statue and tells it to kill all non-humans. [[spoiler: The statue later shows up as a horrible monster, which leads to a BrickJoke that it's a metaphor for the evil of racism.]]
* FixItInPost: A running gag in Episode 8.
* FetishRetardant: [[invoked]] In Episode 78, where the duo discusses ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory'', slowbeef notices that the show's attempts to sexualize Jessica Lange is this to him, because Lange happens to look a lot like his own mother, making said attempts feel very weird and off-putting to him.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: A lot of what Dave_O says.
* TheGhost: Proteus is apparently slated to show up on the show eventually, but circumstances (including apparently becoming a father) have continuously gotten in the way of him showing up.
* HilaritySues: In Episode 15, their discussion about Sega turns into this.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: In Episode 27, the guest Tim Miller tells a short story about how he translated a ''Shinobi-X'' video into Japanese and gave the translation to a friend/editor to see if he got everything right. She was apparently quite confused by the line "ninja hand fart", among others.
* TheJerseyDevil: Dave_o theorizes that slowbeef is this in episode 8.
* LowerDeckEpisode: The "theme" of episodes 3 and 3.5, where Diabetus and General Ironicus talk about being "LP sidekicks" to slowbeef and [=ChipCheezum=] respectively.
* MadlibsCatchPhrase: It's the "''Series/BreakingBad'' of X".
* NeverSayThatAgain: slowbeef's reaction to Diabetus trying PokemonSpeak, and when Diabetus tried to impersonate Yoda.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Discussed in the case of [=DarkSydePhil=], where Diabetus says that Phil possibly plays up his ineptitude because it garners views and reactions. slowbeef however doubts it since Phil acts like that both in and out of games and that it would be fairly difficult to keep up the act all the time without some sign of slipping up.
* PoesLaw: Discussed between slowbeef and [[Webvideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Woolie]] in episode 48, where Woolie describes a point where they attempted to parody the trend of [=LPers=] relying on overexaggerated reactions only for their fans to mistake it as the real deal and calling them out for it.
* PokemonSpeak: slowbeef says "when you're drunk, repeating their names is the funniest goddamn thing ever", and Diabetus jokingly says that's how he speaks when he's drunk.
* ARareSentence: slowbeef says he has trouble believing that he's saying the phrase "LetsPlay/ProtonJon was tricked into doing a ''Super Mario World'' ROM hack LP."
* RPGEpisode: Episodes 45 & 49 consist of slowbeef, Diabetus, [=ChipCheezum=], General Ironicus, and 100 HOGS AGREE playing the game Dungeon World.
* RunningGag: Transitioning with "so there's that."
** The ''Breaking Bad'' comparisons in Episode 2, and Diabetus fixing things in post in episode 8.
** Diabetus mentioning that he'll fix or edit entire chunks of the recording out in post.
** slowbeef gushing about the SA ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' thread... and in later episodes, slowbeef complaining about how he's gotten fed up with it.
** All of the "Live from PAX" episodes begin with the duo and whoever they're with reading aloud Craigslists ads for "casual encounters."
* SamusIsAGirl: In Episode 27, Diabetus and Cherrydoom are surprised to find out that guest [=MelodicWaffle=] is a girl.
* ShoutOut: Episode 9 has a segment where slowbeef and Diabetus give shout outs to some Let's Plays on the forums that they enjoy.
** In multiple episodes, slowbeef gushes over ''VisalNovel/DanganRonpa''[[labelnote:*]]which [[InvertedTrope he eventually went back on]] due to the Website/{{Tumblr}} FanDumb ruining the SA thread for him[[/labelnote]], Diabetus over ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', and Dave_O over ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''.
** All the ''Series/BreakingBad'' references. (''Retsutalk'' is the ''Breaking Bad'' of podcasts.)
** Episode 14 is more or less slowbeef advertising ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''.
** In episode 34, Lowtax sums up his opinion on scarecam [=LPs=] with, "You'll scream to anything," in reference to the Music/DeadMilkmen song, "Instant Club Hit (You'll Dance to Anything)."
* SpecialGuest: Frequently.
** Recurring guests:
*** General Ironicus: Episodes 3, 3.5, 13, 23, 45, 49
*** [=ChipCheezum=]: Episodes 6, 13, 23, 45, 49
*** Dave_O: Episodes 4-8
*** [=ProtonJon=]: Episodes 8, 15, 24
*** Cherrydoom: Episodes 19-21, 27, 29.
** Dectilon and Phiggle in episode 12, Psychedelic Eyeball in episode 14, orenronen in episode 16, and [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] in episode 32.
** Parodied in episodes 26 and 27; [[spoiler:the "special guest" is slowbeef both times]].
** Lowtax in episode 34.
** LetsPlay/NorthernLion in episode 36.
** [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] in episode 37.
** LetsPlay/{{Supergreatfriend}} in Episode 39.
** Michael and Ray of Creator/AchievementHunter[=/=]Creator/RoosterTeeth in Episode 41.
** Woolie of Webvideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay in Episode 48. Pat in Episode 54.
** Zorak (anime/manga mod of SA) in Episode 50.
** [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling]] in episode 55.
* TakeThat: Diabetus takes a shot at Creator/JeffDunham, comparing him favorably to LetsPlay/PewDiePie, though as if he's surprised to be doing so.
** It's hard to find a podcast where they '''don't''' take at least one cheap shot at [=PewDiePie=] or [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]].
* UnPerson: In episode 8, they jokingly try to turn [=ChipCheezum=] into one of these.
* ValuesDissonance: Discussed in Episode 16 regarding how the Japanese handle {{Spoiler}}s compared to North America. Basically, spoiling something in the Japanese section of the internet blackballs the user and Japanese forums can have separate threads on a game: one where people are starting the game and one where people have finished the game and can freely reveal spoilers. [[invoked]]
* VulgarHumor: {{Discussed|Trope}} in Episode 10, where slowbeef argues that [=PewDiePie=] is overtly bringing this up in regards to [[BlackComedyRape rape]] and other vulgar jokes in a misguided attempt to be funny.
[[/folder]]

!!!Other Retsupuraers

[[folder:Chip Cheezum and General Ironicus]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Chip.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa0NpLFpw8o#t=159s Retsupurae Sonic Advance 2]], after sitting through two-and-a-half minutes of repetitive commentary about the level, Ironicus asks for the [=LPer=] to say something new. Less than 15 seconds later, he unfortunately gets his wish. [[note]]The [=LPer=] starts thinking that Eggman kidnapped Cream's mother [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty to be a sexual object]][[/note]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: During the RP of Pac Man World 2
-->'''General Ironicus:''' You have 39 lives! This is clearly a baby game for babies!
* EyeCatch: The ''Elemental Goddess'' special episode MST included one that had bad FanArt and a "Joke Fan Art" done in the Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann style by [[Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}} Peachi]].
* {{Filler}}: Remember, kids, having long videos is not the same thing as having lots of worthwhile content. Particularly evident in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxHcF9ePiQo nacho]]'', where the host is already done three minutes in, but stays in the level for ''seven more minutes'', doing ''absolutely nothing'' so he can fill up the [=YouTube=] time limit. With this in mind, it's no surprise that he's spent over a year [=LPing=] ''VideoGame/BanjoTooie''.
* FollowTheLeader
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In [=ChipCheezum's=] riff on the first episode of ''Elemental Goddess'', he makes a random joke about how much he hates Jews, followed by Ironicus telling him "we're not doing that episode yet." Flash-forward to several months later and the riff of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAVdTZBzEm4 The Special Episode]] and, well...
* FreudianSlip: Chip joked that the guy who did an LP of VideoGame/{{Pong}} was only allowed to watch news broadcasts from decades ago. After accidentally saying he had to watch ''nude'' broadcasts from decades ago.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Amazingly enough, ''{{subverted|Trope}}'' in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlC0eJ6m-1M&t=2m28s Yowie wowie!!!]]'' Justified, though, because the [[YaoiFangirl girls in question]] were {{cosplay}}ing as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto and Sasuke.]]
-->'''General Ironicus:''' This is the world's best argument against girl on girl action!\\
[...]\\
'''[=ChipCheezum=]:''' I feel ''weird'' right now! This is wrong! Usually, I'd be like "'''YEEEEAAH!'''", but right now, right now...
* LazyArtist: Chip calls out the author of The Mike Weiss Show for this.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Ironicus begins the commentary over [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLpOgT3cOP4 Retsupurae Megaman X2]] by complaining about how ''every single'' bad [=LPer=] they could find on Youtube would invariably LP a ''Franchise/MegaMan'' game alongside either ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'' or ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels''. He brings this up again a few minutes in when it turns out that the [=LPer=] is, big surprise, really bad at the game.
* RapidFireNo: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlC0eJ6m-1M&t=2m5s From]] ''Yowie wowie!'':
--> ''[[[ItMakesSenseInContext The two cosplayers]] [[FetishRetardant start making out]]]''\\
'''General Ironicus:''' And--whaAAAAAA?\\
'''[=ChipCheezum=]:''' AAGH! NO! NO! NO!
* WrittenSoundEffect: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKSDjKnsfn8 DDDDDDDDDDDDDKKKKKKKKKKKKK]]''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:[=LesBeardly=]]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: At the very end of [=LesBeardly=]'s video on Blazzerdragon (after a lengthy rant against the [=LPer=]):
--> '''''BLAZZERDRAGON''''' ...Eat a dick.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Blazzerdragon tells a story about how a lesbian friend of his slept with her brother because she thought he was his boyfriend... [[MindScrew or something.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: [=LesBeardly=]'s videos are often done with a heavy dose of SarcasmMode.
* FunWithSubtitles: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ysl_v1OJTOA "Translations for PewDiePie fans"]] has [=LesBeardly=] calming playing ''VideoGame/{{Mass Effect 3}}'', with subtitles that mock LetsPlay/PewDiePie's style of videos.
* RapidFireComedy: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsqt34CL1CM His take]] on one of {{LetsPlay/qzecwx}}'s videos (back when annotations could be added by anyone) ends up turning into this, as the voiced annotations often overlap one another.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: All over the place in "Kirsten Land".
* SarcasmBlind: From the riff on dbzisdakrunk:
--> ''(The player hits a P-Switch, causing the music to change into the famous ''VideoGame/{{Super Mario Bros|1}}'' theme)''\\
'''dbzisdakrunk:''' [[SarcasmMode I have no idea where he got that!]]\\
'''[=LesBeardly=]:''' Keep working on your sarcasm, buddy. I'm sure it'll improve with time.\\
'''Guest Commentator:''' Well, if you look at it, it's either the Mario 1 music, or--\\
'''[=LesBeardly=]:''' No, I take that back. It actually worked on his guest commentator there.
* SarcasmMode: Taken UpToEleven in the appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTTSsN0GP7 "Commander Sarcasm does a retsupurae"]].
* {{Understatement}}: The description for his video on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhW8jX_-Csk Blazzerdragon]]:
--> I don't like this guy very much.
* UnfortunateNames: "dbzisdakrunk", which Beardly refuses to say out loud.

----
-->"[[RunningGag ...Dead to rights?]]"\\
"[[OnceAnEpisode Dead to rights.]]"
----

to:

* OncePerEpisode: If doing a ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears'' Retsupurae, Diabetus starts with a DoubleEntendre related to the game George Wood is reviewing in his best UsefulNotes/BillClinton impersonation. It gets to the point where slowbeef is completely astounded by how many Clinton jokes he can come up with, considering the subject matter:
-->"Are you ready to '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hoh_c-WRNs contend]]''' with what's in my pants?"\\
"After I play '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0iYB9FWVT8 Buster Brothers]]''' I'm gonna bust a nut!"\\
"I'll show you why they call me Big Dong '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXzxJjIXHik Donkey Kong]]'''."\\
"Look in my pants and I'll show you why they call it the '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8LFOVGUt2g Playstation]]'''."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLswUGD8kxA All Diabetus Clinton jokes archived here.]]
** The legend continues with the new playlists Retsupurae have made on Youtube, with the description for the "Gaming in the Clinton Years" playlist as:
--> "When you hit my playlist you'll always wanna select repeat, baby."
** Also, starting with the Wrongpurae of ''VideoGame/LastAlert'' (and intially meant as a one-off reference to their LP of ''[[VideoGame/DeadToRights Dead To Rights: Retribution]]'' where they did the same thing), every episode now ends with them both saying "Dead to Rights."
* OriginalCharacter: [=JacobMC=], [=BillyMC=]'s snooty older brother. He graduated from Harvard and can beat VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Black [[SelfImposedChallenge with his eyes closed.]] [[TechnologyMarchesOn He also registered Hypercam 2.]]
** There's also his cajun brother, [=BayouBillyMC=], and the "Hollywood Squares" episode introduced his sister, [=LaurenMC=].
** In the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' videos, they speculate on the existence of other music genre/medieval title combo characters in the vein of Rock Knight, such as Rap Duke and Country Squire.
* OrphanedPunchline: The final boss of VideoGame/{{Galerians}} leaves the two out of material with how it drags on, so a portion of it is cut out. When they come back slowbeef and Diabetus are talking about enemas.
* OurHeroIsDead: Jokingly.
-->'''slowbeef:''' And that's the end of Cobra...\\
'''Diabetus:''' All right.\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...[[CueCardPause Episode 5]].\\
'''Diabetus:''' Shorter let's play than usual but glad the good guys won this time.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Abused in many of the creepypastas featured on Crappy Pasta. To date, ''VideoGame/SonicExe'', ''Ihsoy'', ''Blood Whistle'', ''The Yellow Devil'' (which takes it to a ludicrous extreme with ''robots'' that bleed), the ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' story, and ''I HATE YOU'' all feature ludicrous amounts of blood.
* OverlyLongGag: The beginning of ''[[VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy Pursuit]]'', where slowbeef and Proteus get stuck in Dialla's apartment for several minutes trying to collect everything Dialla seems to think she'll need - and then immediately get sent ''right back in'' for a different plot event not thirty seconds after finally being allowed to leave.
** Diabetus drawing out an "Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..." during a particularly long stretch of nothingness in their ''Dark Seed II'' wrongpurae.
* OverusedRunningGag: Towards the end of ''Resident Seavil,'' slowbeef is annoyed at their running gag of staying quiet for the elevator sequence.
* PerverseSexualLust: In ''So there's that'', [=MageKnight404=], who [[SelfInsert inserted himself into a romhack]], reveals that he has this for [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Linoan]]. The duo react the way you'd expect.
* PetTheDog: Their interactions with [[MoralityPet BillyMC]].
** After [=RPing=] [=Joshie164=], slowbeef encouraged his fans to give the original video several likes as it only had one dislike. Three days after the RP, the original video had 1,940 likes, and many very enthusiastic comments.
** When one of Joshie's friends complained about RP mocking him, the commenters started asking him why he wasn't playing with Joshie. He said they all had lives.
-->'''lotrdude13''': Too busy to hang out with your best friend? You're not very good friends.
* PoesLaw: The guys have a little trouble with this sometimes. For instance, in ''The Marios'' they mistake a troll for an actual moron. They decide to start pre-screening videos beforehand after realizing they'd been fooled. In ''Amnesia: The Dork's Descent'', Diabetus and slowbeef argue about whether or not the [=LPer=]'s hysterical terror is staged - Diabetus is positive that it is, while slowbeef merely ''hopes'' so. The fact that the [=LPer=] in question, Jenomorph, favorited the video just hours after it was uploaded may support that theory.
** They also occasionally have trouble accepting that ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears'' was a "legitimate" video game show, as opposed to a very elaborate parody.
** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E47lUkoV4vU Let's Play Sonic the Hedgehog, but Second...]]'' features [=SuperBrosTV=] being wholly incompetent at ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' despite having extensively looked at the map of the level at the start of the video and his whole gimmick for the LP being an in-depth walkthrough. Diabetus actually asks multiple times, "is he fucking with us?" He eventually comes to the conclusion that it has to be on purpose, while slowbeef is still unsure by video's end.
** And then there was the time they [=RPed=] a video from LetsPlay/{{Critikal}}, apparently unaware that Critikal's videos are comedic/satirical, and he often intentionally plays games that are corrupted or poorly emulated. They spent much of the video complaining about the stretched screen and mocking Critikal's use of toilet humor. The video was eventually taken down after they were barraged by Critikal fans, and people informing the pair that they just took a goof video completely seriously. The condescending nature of much of that particular RP just made their mistake look even worse.
* PoliceCodeForEverything: From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=croeirrF_vk their riff on Lodge Massacre]], the SequelHook at the end features police sirens playing in the background. Diabetus imitates a cop, saying "We got a 10-53, someone's making a sequel to a bad flash game, over."
--> '''slowbeef:''' "Deadly force authorized."
* PowerTrio: slowbeef, Diabetus and Proteus, most commonly.
** slowbeef, Diabetus and Dave_O is also quite common.
** slowbeef also once suggests a team-up of [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]], [[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow Jollo]], and [[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Rock Knight]].
* PreMortemOneLiner: Several really bad ones delivered by the killer in the ''VideoGame/PsychoKiller'' riff.
-->'''Morgan James:''' ...Hang up... '''forever.'''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...Seriously? Shut the fuck up.
* PrivateEyeMonologue: Diabetus does this in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnq6NP1psjQ LA Noire Retsupurae]]
* PungeonMaster: Diabetus. Referenced by Slowbeef in the ''Blood Whistle'' Crappypasta in which Peach makes a couple puns related to the way she killed some of the story's characters ("They got a little ''sharp'' with me so I pushed them over the ''edge''). After reading this, Slowbeef says to Diabetus, "She's starting to sound like you."
* PurpleProse: Several of the creepypastas they've riffed abuse this. The most notable example is ''Blood Whistle'', which starts out being written normally, then takes this trope to an absurd degree once the author finds the titular whistle.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: Their take on LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast whose accent is so exaggerated it seems fake.
** "Even ''British'' people are saying 'I can't believe how British this guy sounds.'"
*** Their [=ElectricalBeast=] retsupuraes have even created all-new English stereotypes between the group: Specifically, the English can now [[TimeTravel travel through toime]] and [[Series/DoctorWho telepor']].
* RailingKill: DoubleSubverted. Diabetus remarks that ''Crime Patrol'' didn't have one of these, only for one to happen a second later.
* SpinoffBabies: The ''Sir Basil Pike Public School'' wrongpurae videos have the title [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku263TRcScQ "Ambition Babies"]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: slowbeef gives one of these to Quadraxis14 in the [=SNES9X=] retsupurae. Here is the speech without the VerbalTic:
-->''Shut up! There are no viewers. No one watched this to the end except me. It is a seriously horrible video, Quadraxis14. [[{{Scrub}} There is no skill in]] [[SaveScumming replaying the same thing over and reloading save states over and over again]]. A monkey could do this. A kid can do this. It doesn't matter I don't know what the point of the video is. I don't know know why you're doing it. It will not make you popular in school. It will not get you girls or anything. It's a waste of time. I'm sorry. I'm taking away from 'On Liberty.'''
** The end of the RP of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is one big one against both the Critic and against fans for liking [[LargeHam his style of videos]]. Admittedly, a bulk of it is made up of ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch.
* RecursiveAcronym: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IiIcAr-8kw Let's Play Resident Evil 5: The Demo!]], the video is done by a group called E.P.I.C., which stands for '''E'''pic '''P'''wnage '''I'''n '''C'''olor.
-->'''Diabetus''': What does E.P.I.C. stand for again?\\
'''Proteus''': Epic... something, something, something.\\
'''slowbeef''': It's a recursive acronym.
* ReferenceOverdosed: The guys try to take this trope to the absolute limit in their [=RP=] of ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Apocalypse]]'' dropping Creator/BruceWillis movie references (since he starred in the game) for around 20 minutes until they give up and start referencing pretty much anything from pop culture by that point.
* RescueSex: At the end of ''Ninja Hayate'', after saving the princess, Diabetus tells it as it is.
-->'''Princess:''' My hero!\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm gonna get laid, hyuh!"
* RevengeFic: The duo theorize that Mike Dawson must have done ''something'' to get Cyberdreams mad at him, considering ''Dark Seed II'' portrays him as the most obnoxious man alive who even the characters in the game can't stand.
* RomanticComedy: slowbeef theorizes, at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVgXam6YzcE Super Bummerman 2]], why musclebomber keeps saying "amy" instead of "enemy".
-->'''slowbeef:''' Amy must be like this bookworm chick who's into LetsPlay, so he's trying to get his nerdy friends to help him do one, so he chose Super Bummerman!\\
'''Diabetus:''' That sounds like the makings of the perfect teenage romantic comedy.
* RunningGag: Tons of them.
** Unregistered Hypercam 2
** When making fun of adventure games, announcing an abrupt end to character interaction with variations of "Okay, bye!"
** When a character opens their mouth ridiculously wide, Diabetus starts holding a note as if he were an opera star.
** When a character has their mouth slightly open but aren't saying anything, or when they stay seemingly frozen in place (usually accompanied with an empty stare), Diabetus gives a static "Uuuuhhhhhhnnnnnnnnnn..."
** The [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] voice, which becomes the voice of almost any reptilian enemy.
** Diabetus often lampshades the seeming inability of video game characters to speak at a distance. Even when they're standing only a few feet from each other.
-->'''King Graham addressing some thugs''': Gentlemen, please excuse me, I didn't mean to interrupt you.\\
'''One thug, standing across a counter two feet from Graham, walks around the counter to Graham.'''\\
'''Diabetus''': [...] I will come over here and we will resume this conversation.\\
'''Thug''': Da inn's full! Ain't got no more rooms.\\
'''Diabetus''': ...I had to come over here to tell you that.
** Diabetus's mentioning of different themes of music (eg. the "return the book to the library theme" in ''VideoGame/DarkSeed''), usually during games that were lucky to have a dozen songs.
** slowbeef's using a [[WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Mentok-esque]] "bweeeeee-oop" during teleportation of rapid camera movement.
** The duo tends to have a MomentOfSilence during ''VideoGame/DeepFear'''s elevator screens. slowbeef progressively gets irritated by this, even stating that [[OverusedRunningGag he's getting sick of having to keep the joke up]].
** Around the time when they started Retsutalk is when "[[Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream I have no X]], [[AndIMustScream and I must Y]]" became one of these. It eventually lead to their Wrongpurae of the game in question.
** Referring to "the Youtube Emperor" to whom they can supposedly report bad [=LPs=]. Sometimes identified with LetsPlay/DeceasedCrab.
** In the Negotiator/Ambition serious, slowbeef is repeatedly surprised that the flash games had an executive producer.
** slowbeef's [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane]] impression and Diabetus yelling from the other side of his room (presumably) whenever part of a Newgrounds review is in ALL CAPS.
** After drawn out opening credits scene, Diabetus often pretends as if they were the closing credits only for slowbeef to tell them the game hasn't started yet.
** Diabetus frequently uses a whiny "Unh!" grunt whenever a character punches or throws something.
** During the Mortal Kombat Mythologies Wrongpurae, Diabetus would occasionally say "[[{{Pun}} Sub-Zero X!]]"
** Blood, from the Crappy Pasta videos.
** In Slowbeef's playthrough of ''Afterfall: Insanity,'' exclusively using the fire ax (as well as replacing it with a new one whenever he comes across one).
** Whenever there's StuffBlowingUp, you can expect a joke or two about Creator/MichaelBay [[ADateWithRosiePalms needing some alone time]] while watching it, especially during ''Surgical Strike'' and Dahi̇r İnşaat's military videos.
** [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons "Jane, stop this crazy thing!!!"]]
** slowbeef trying to imitate a certain genre or comedy style [[AntiHumor and]] [[StylisticSuck deliberately]] [[CannotTellAJoke botching it]], such as his attempt to do a PrivateEyeMonologue in ''Noir: A Shadowy Thriller'', or how his back-and-forth [[ReferenceOverdosed movie title-dropping]] with Diabetus in ''Apocalypse'' devolved into him [[TropeName reading out the name of a movie in the middle of a sentence without context]].
* RuthlessModernPirates: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtmSY3u9CUM In this vid.]] According to slowbeef: "[[LetsPlay/SirRonLionheart He's]] like the only pirate you would never ever wanna be in your life."
** "Shiver me timbers, alriiiiight, hawhawhawww!"
* SanitySlippage:
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Retsupurae. Listening to the shift in commentary from making fun of the video to [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness outright insulting the guy who made it]], it's obvious they're suffering.
** Some videos incite giggling fits in the commentors at points later in the video. ''Earnest Evans'' is the greatest example of this, since the game simply becomes exponentially more ridiculous as time goes on.
** The 4+ hours of boredom during the ''[[VideoGame/DarkSeed Dark Seed II]]'' longplay slowly drive slowbeef ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness and]]'' Diabetus into an infuriated frenzy. The incompetence of the longplayer, [[TryEverything obsessively exploring the same areas and dialogue trees]] and sometimes even doing absolutely nothing for long stretches of time, does ''not'' help matters.
** ''King's Quest VII'' goes from boring them to death to causing them to prattle insanely in impersonations of [[Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy Joker and Bane]].
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' takes a heavy toll on both slowbeef and Diabetus.
-->'''slowbeef:''' ''[at the end of Episode 50]'' Can I just say one thing? Usually, we stop recording, we have a little, not debrief, but an aside? I have never heard you more depressed than after ''Sonic 06'' episodes. I'm not lying. After the billiard ball puzzle, we stopped recording, and you were like, "That was ''abhorrent''."
* SarcasmFailure:
** "I am sure that someone wants me to come up with something witty to say to [[http://www.viddler.com/explore/retsu/videos/108/ this guy]], but ''he is just faaaaat.''"
** Throughout their RP of VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy, Proteus is reduced from DeadpanSnarker to gibbering, {{Angrish}}-spewing wreck by the atrocious game design.
** During the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4dlwgbj7hc Mortal Kombat Mythologies]]'' Wrongpurae, Diabetus attempts to make a joke about the fire-breathing dinosaur:
-->'''Diabetus:''' I.... I'm sorry this is ridiculous.
** In the ''Altered Beast'' Wrongpurae:
-->'''Diabetus:''' This just presents a slew of pun opportunities! I don't know where to start! So I won't.
* SceneryPorn: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsPlgVgCRSo [=SnakemanMN=] Wants to Be the Guy]], slowbeef and Dave_O begin to marvel at the amazing detail of the background of I Want to Be the Guy when [=SnakemanMN=] pauses the game for two minutes to answer his phone.
-->'''Dave_O:''' You see there's purple bricks; but then there's also... hold on a second... grey ones.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Woah, you're right! I would never have noticed that if he hadn't paused the game for a full minute to pick up the phone.
* {{Scotireland}}: Diabetus and slowbeef have no idea whether the [=LPer=] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCRCJRCH8VE this video]] is Scottish or Irish, so they split the difference.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Y'know, he's probably from New Jersey.
** While watching the pilot to the VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} cartoon, slowbeef misidentifies Morrigan's [[OohMeAccentsSlipping fluctuating Scottish accent]] as Irish.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Diabetus does this to an extent in part 4 of the "I have no mouth and I must scream" wrongpurae. He is implied to have turned away from the screen during the elevator sequence.
** They get about halfway through ''VisualNovel/PlumbersDontWearTies'' before giving up. When asked, Diabetus later said that the game got so nonsensical that they couldn't make it funny.
* SdrawkcabName: Abused to hilarious effect in ''Ihsoy'', especially with Hceap Ssecnirp.
* SelfDeprecation: In their RP of Policenauts, Diabetus comments that the only thing sadder than reviewing the game would be hacking it. slowbeef, who was working on a translation patch for the game at the time, commented "I'll sa--fuck you."
** Diabetus and his family are occasionally made the butt of jokes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5TW2PfwxMQ In the RP of Nostalgic Rage's Mario 3 LP]], they go on a tangent about if the [=LPer=] (who has a thick southern accent) is actually Diabetus' Dad. In another video, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR94fOBDFcs The self-titled "Worst Retsupurae Ever"]], Diabetus wishes the Pokemon LP would evolve into pornography, adding that he meant HUMAN porn, not Pokemon porn.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Look, I know you're from the south, and you don't understand how evolution works, but still...\\
'''Proteus:''' He's from the South, so he understands having sex with animals, but these aren't real animals.\\
'''Diabetus:''' I'm from the South, and evolution is what happens when Pokemon evolve into the Bible, right?
** Near the end of the ''Nocturnal Letters'' Retsuflash, Diabetus comes to the conclusion that the titular game was made in the South due to its terrible graphics and BrotherSisterIncest subplot.
** Proteus also mocked slowbeef for basically being responsible for most of these:
-->'''Proteus:''' This is all your fault, slowbeef.
** In the description for a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8WZMA37aZE Metroid Prime 3 Retsupurae]]
--> [[TemptingFate What could be worse than thi--]] [[http://blip.tv/file/4453432/ ...oh]]
** The "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8B5UxxX63o JOP]]" video was eventually renamed to "[[VideoGame/{{Parodius}} Jikkyu Oshaberi Parodius]] - The Only Thing Harder to Spell than Retsupurae."
* SeparateSceneStorytelling: slowbeef and Diabetus [[PlayingWithATrope play with this trope]] by acting as if the video game narrator for ''King's Quest V'' is really reading a book to his grandson. The "grandson," who the duo names Billy, then proceeds to ask questions to his grandfather about the oddness of the story.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Shows up in some of the Crappy Pastas, ''[[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/crappy-pasta-iii-hear-its-cry-6620176 Blood Whistle]]'' and ''[[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/creepypasta-live-it-wasn-t-lavender-town-6670876 It Wasn't Lavender Town]]'' in particular.
--> '''slowbeef:''' "Their only purpose in making this mod was to flagellate the naive soul to take the bait of its mysterious houris..."\\
'''Diabetus:''' Is that the mission statement behind this ROM hack, really?\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''[[{{Corpsing}} *laughing*]]'' God almighty. I need thesaurus on every single...
* ShaggyDogStory: In the ''[[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Cobra]]'' wrongpurae, slowbeef and Diabetus sit through seven hours of the titular character's space adventures, only for it to end with a hurried sequence of events that the pair summarize thusly:
-->'''slowbeef:''' [[spoiler:Your two sisters died for a weapon I just shot...!]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' Well, that was all pretty pointless, wasn't it?
* ShockSite: slowbeef's [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity interpretation]][[invoked]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmXVjSJ72yU&list=UU7UdKZ9ujF1sFlP93dfjMgA NO GIRLS ALLOWED]].
* ShoutOut: Quite a few, including ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KT64t2ITuM No Hope]]'', which quickly turned into our boys systematically running through every single line from ''Franchise/StarWars'' that had been subject to MemeticMutation.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5evl89KsmLM The first Wrongpurae of]] ''VideoGame/EvilZone'' has a ton of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' references, due to the fact that the longplayer's selected character has [[Creator/PaulEiding Colonel Campbell's voice]] - complete with playing the music from [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Arsenal Gear]] during an intermission when they had to re-sync their audio.
** In the Retsufrash of the Newgrounds game, Fractured, after commenting that the messages in the game sound like fortune cookies, he bets that the next one will say, [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife "Bad luck and misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity."]]
** Diabetus has thrown in the occasional inexplicit ''Series/DoctorWho'' reference.
** Retsupurae's official video playlist for the ''[[Creator/ZapDramatic Ambition]]'' series is subtitled [[Theatre/HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying How To Succeed in Flash Without Really Trying]].
** The titles of their ''VideoGame/AloneInTheDark'' wrongpuraes are all {{Pun}}s based on other media: ''[[VideoGame/HeavyRain The Origami Thriller]]'', ''[[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Pirates of the Carnby-ean]]'' and ''[[Film/CowboysAndAliens Cowboys vs. Polygons]]''.
*** Ditto with ''[[VideoGame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream I Have No Game, And I Must Play]]'', which uses a different pun for each part's subtitle: ''[[Film/WeekendAtBernies Weekend at Bennie's]]'', ''[[Film/BetterOffDead Better Off Ted]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH The Secret of Nimdok]]'', ''[[Series/{{Ellen}} The Ellen Show]]'', ''[[Film/FindingForrester Finding Gorrister]]'' and ''[[Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs The Silence of the AMs]]''.
** Upon hearing the accent of the player in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6OVduqiHN0 Where in time is Mario?]]'', Diabetus claims that the "problem" he mentions in the first few seconds is "he was out [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill gettin' propane]]".
* SincerityMode: The pair chose to ''apologize'' to Rijno, LetsPlay/BillyMC, and even [[WebVideo/TheIrateGamer Chris Bores]] upon watching WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's attempt a Let's Play. They repeatedly said that they weren't kidding.
-->'''slowbeef:''' This is the September 11th of Let's Play.
** Later on his Formspring account, slowbeef actually said he ''owed Doug Walker an apology'' after watching LetsPlay/PewDiePie.
** Later on, he claimed Tobuscus was even worse than [=PewDiePie=]; in the Retsutalk after "Adults React To [=PewDiePie=]" he apologized and retracted the statement (though he maintains the opinion that Tobuscus is ''almost'' as bad).
** In [[http://www.formspring.me/effinslowbeef/q/423617876755243818 this Formspring post]], slowbeef offered an apology to [=QueenieZ=] upon hearing that she apparently still receives hate mail and death threats over her Eternal Darkness [=LP=].
** A bit more than halfway through [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5ln7sK_5mo "Local Paperboy Calls It Quits!,"]] Diabetus briefly interrupts the riff in order to alleviate Billy's concerns that some of his retsupurae-based viewers don't actually like him:
-->'''Diabetus:''' No one dislikes you, Billy! Like, seriously, unironically, I'm saying that: No one dislikes you.\\
'''slowbeef:''' ...It's ''possible'' that someone dislikes him--\\
'''Diabetus:''' [[HeartwarmingMoments No it's not! No, it's not.]]
** During the Retsufrash of Exmortis, after going through another incredibly long journal, they suggest that the creator write novels or short stories.
** Despite spending most of ''VideoGame/{{Harvester}}'' RP poking fun at the game, they admitted that [[spoiler:the simulation being representative of violent video games]] was interesting social commentary.
** About halfway through part 3 of ''Cobra 3D'', the duo point out just how little effort seems to have been put into the game by apologizing to [=OmegaEdge29=] for making fun of his ''Kaizo Mario 64'' romhack's similar lack of effort.
** [[invoked]]slowbeef admits that the TimeTravel rules used by ''VideoGame/ShadowOfDestiny'' [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot have potential]], but gets weighed down by [[MoonLogicPuzzle the obtuse puzzle design]] and [[IdiotHero Eike's decision-making]].
* ShootingSuperman: Brought up in ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'', when Cobra fights a man made of nigh-indestructible glass.
-->'''slowbeef:''' They're having a fist fight? He's made of fuckin' crystal!
* SimilarlyNamedWorks:[[invoked]] In "Retsufrash is Art", slowbeef and Diabetus watch a playthrough of the ugolegend Flash ArtGame "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/576095 Loneliness]]" but read the [[FanDumb user comments]] from the unrelated ArtGame "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/548694 Loneliness.]]" [[FailedASpotCheck without realizing their mistake]].
* SoBadItsGood: [[invoked]]slowbeef has this reaction to ''VideoGame/ShadowWarOfSuccession''. In a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZAWAqyjedo very]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuCT7CuEIz0 intense]] way.
-->'''slowbeef:''' I have to get a UsefulNotes/ThreeDOInteractiveMultiplayer [[UsefulNotes/{{Emulation}} emulator]] tonight!
** Ditto with Diabetus and ''VideoGame/{{Growl}}''.
--->'''Diabetus:''' (after seeing the AttractMode flashing the "INSERT COIN" text) I would have inserted my entire ''wallet'' at this point.
* SoBadItsHorrible: [[invoked]]Diabetus ends up sharing slowbeef's sentiment towards ''Arise 4'' by the end of the video.
* SoundEffectBleep: Abused horribly (or possibly [[SoBadItsGood hilariously]]) in Raven Rage's LetsPlay of [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 Super Mario Brothers 3]]. The effects used to haphazardly censor his profanity included an [[MostAnnoyingSound obnoxiously loud bleep, an obnoxiously loud siren, farting and belching noises, and shattering glass]]. This was riffed on mercilessly in the commentary:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "You guys got somethin' other than glass breakin' and fartin'? ...Think I got a siren."\\
'''Proteus:''' "I don't know, let me see what I can get on freesoundeffects.com."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm gonna behead a chicken, you got one of them Yak Bak machines?"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSugkuzwpBM Test Your Mig--oh it's over]]" features a random, TV-style bleep in the middle of the source video. The duo makes fun of this both when it happens and in the post commentary.
* SoundtrackDissonance:
** ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' doesn't have that many music tracks, resulting in some wildly inappropriate music at times. Of course slowbeef points this out at every opportunity
** The soundtrack of ''VideoGame/DeepFear'', which is actually quite good, is spoiled by the dullness of the situation.
** The source video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm2rhVIZkxI OH YES I AM DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS]]" uses "Decadence" by Music/{{Disturbed}}[[note]]The riff video uses different music for copyright reasons[[/note]] as background music for an LP of ''a Website/{{Facebook}} anime-style profile picture application.'' The duo pretends to be {{otaku}} who [[MundaneMadeAwesome think this is awesome]].
--> '''Diabetus:''' This music doesn't fit with what's going on at all!!
** The sudden metal music at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ9Vt1yVVko "Mario Dies at the End"]] catches them both off guard and brings slowbeef to hysterics.
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUWqitoyzSY Final Zone 2 Part 2]]" opens with Round 4 of ''Final Zone II'' as Momoko Ring, in which what sounds like the pop song opening theme of an anime plays in the background. In a [[TopDownView top-down]] military [[ShootEmUp shooter]]. The riffers joke that the soundtrack was composed before ''the game's genre'' was finalized.
--> '''slowbeef:''' This is so not appropriate for the action!\\
'''Diabetus:''' It's what she's listening to in her ears. It gets her into the killing mood!\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''Final Zone II: Shit Just Happens and Then I Don't Know What.''\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''Final Zone II: Our Website/{{Pandora}} Is ''Really'' Broken.''
* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]], they tell so many bad puns that it becomes so unfunny, that it's funny.
-->'''slowbeef:''' [[LampshadeHanging Would anyone find this [video] funny besides us?]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' I think they tuned out a long time ago.
* SpaceX: Diabetus makes a big deal about the "Space" part of ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' and the two of them prefix random things with "space" and talk about how things are the way they are [[RecycledInSpace because it's space]].
** In ''Retsupurae 3000'', everything is Cyber-X...[[RunningGag because it's]] TheFuture.
* SpinOff: ''Webcam Ward'', a video series on Website/SomethingAwful with slowbeef and Khad (Diabetus took Khad's place from ''When Fur is Rubbed the Wrong Way'' on) commentating on various other Youtube videos.
* SpoilerOpening: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUgBMSwE050 PTSD: Pokemon Traumatic Stress Disorder]] is an RP of a ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' LP that consists of a failed attempt to get through a dungeon, preceded by a minute and a half of anime music playing over clips that spoil every plot twist in the game after that point.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[http://twitpic.com/s4ll9 This picture sums their opinion up]]
* StealthInsult: During the credits of ''VideoGames/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', slowbeef and Diabetus notice that Roberta Williams was credited as a "[[HarpingOnAboutHarpies Harpy]]" and a "[[YouDirtyRat Rat]]", and assumed that the game was insulting its very own creator.
* StealthPun: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvhbgPeD4cc this]] vid, Diabetus suggests that instead of hanging out with Solar Man and getting blazed, he and slowbeef should simply chill, man. Just chill, man. [[spoiler:Chill Man is the Robot Master [[ElementalRockPaperScissors weak to Solar Blaze]] in ''Mega Man 10'']].
** Another, less subtle one shows up in the "Let's Rock Out" video with Diabetus commenting "I wonder how long he had to Music/{{Muse}} over the song choice before he felt ready." The LP was of Knights of Cydonia, a song by the band.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: The "Meet 'N' Fuck Kingdom" video has all the sex scenes censored out, with the player adding in text lying about what the character was doing.
-->'''Narration:''' And then they drank tea. They certainly didn't engage in six incredibly frustrating, boring, and shameful sexual mini-games that were so needlessly complex, these three girls are essentially the final bosses of Meet n' Fuck Kingdom. Nope.
* SweetHomeAlabama: Diabetus is from Alabama, and has the Southern Hospitality trait down to a tee with his more deadpan sense of humour and stoicism. During the State Flag round in ''"What is Madmatty Thinking?" "Correctl!"'' he immediately recognizes the Alabama flag from a vague written description, without even seeing it.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:T - Z]]
* TakeAThirdOption: Demonstrated in this exchange
-->'''slowbeef:''': Maybe [[LetsPlay/ElectricalBeast he]] was playing VideoGame/ChronoTrigger and doesn't realize when one game ends and the other begins?\\
'''Diabetus:''': Nah, I think he's just crazy.\\
{{Beat}}\\
'''slowbeef:''' Can't it be both?
* TakeYourTime: They repeatedly mock ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'' for this. "King Graham, the ''forgetful'' adventurer".
* TemptingFate:
** In their ''Series/GamingInTheClintonYears VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' Retsupurae:
-->'''slowbeef:''' Okay, this is VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}. So there's no fucking way you have a UsefulNotes/BillClinton joke.\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''(In faux-Clinton accent)'' "I'll show you something that's [[HumongousMecha Weltall]]."\\
''[{{Beat}}]''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''(Astounded)'' Shit...\\
'''Diabetus:''' Sorry.
** Also, in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3v5AMNjH8M Most Shameful Thing In The World]] Retsupurae:
-->'''Diabetus:''' With the amount of dignity lost, I don't see how this could possibly get any... ''*RecordNeedleScratch*'' [[DancingTheme ...worse?]]
** In Let's Point at Super Metroid: "I propose this video cannot get worse from this moment. Seriously." Somehow, it did.
** In [=MageKnight404=]'s Let's Play of Pokemon White:
-->'''[=MageKnight=]:''' So thanks for watching us play Pokemon White.\\
'''Diabetus:''' ''(In fake Hilda voice)'' "Who are you talking to?"\\
'''[=MageKnight=]:''' ''(In '''his''' Hilda voice)'' "Wait, who are you talking to?"\\
'''slowbeef:''' Oh god.\\
'''Diabetus:''' Really?
** During the ''Escape'' RP:
-->'''slowbeef:''' Now to solve this puzzle tout suite. ''(Places sink handle on faucet and turns it on.)'' First we turn on the water...\\
'''Proteus:''' This might be the least retarded solution for any puzzle in this game yet.\\
'''slowbeef:''' And we're going to stop up the water with the ''silver coin''...\\
'''Proteus:''' Never mind, spoke too soon...
** During the Arise 4 RF, slowbeef mentions the how easy it is to accidentally click off a window during the game's awful combat sections, while he's fighting one of the enemies. No points for guessing what he does almost immediately afterwards.
** Invoked during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbVKL-Meo0 "Adults React To PewDiePie"]]:
-->'''slowbeef:''' *Sigh* Y'know, maybe I'm making to much of this, maybe it's not that bad. I'm sure it has some appeal and there's probably nothing that terrible in these videos I mean you know--\\
'''LetsPlay/PewDiePie:''' Look! He's raping her, he's raping her!\\
'''slowbeef:''' I'm sorry, what was that?
** After the end of the mission in ''VideoGame/SurgicalStrike,'' the protagonist goes to a tropical island to vacation with some bikini babes. DJB responds to this with "It'd be great if these beach girls [[RunningGag just started]] [[StuffBlowingUp exploding.]]" [[spoiler:They immediately do, courtesy of Kabul.]]
** Near the end of ''VideoGame/DraculaUnleashed'', Diabetus mock protagonist Alexander's inability to protect anyone by commenting that he would come back into the house where his fiance is in along with Van Helsing and find it swarming with vampires. [[spoiler:He does.]]
** Slowbeef's sarcastic declaration of "All hail Shadow!" during parts 40 and 41 of his Sonic '06 wrongpurae becomes a delicious case of [[IncrediblyLamePun foreshadowing]] when the game starts singing those very words ''sincerely'' during Shadow's credit song.
** Speaking of Sonic '06, the very first thing Diabetus says in the first part of the saga is "Will it explode your Playstation 3?". Sure enough, halfway through the game Slowbeef's [=PS3=] went kaput.
** Diabetus seems to have developed clairvoyance for imminent silliness. From their RP of Metroid: Other M's theater mode:
-->'''Diabetus:''' If only grappling was authorized...\\
'''Adam [in game]:''' Samus, use of the Grapple Beam is authorized!\\
''Hilarity ensues''
** During "[[https://youtu.be/TM4tmIGV6QU?t=290 Assjoe's Silent Hill]]", Mr. DJB notes that he feels that they're "not at risk", no matter what they do, because there are no forests to eat them (in reference to the two [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSWLa0ib8LU "Fog"]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOaBogxfdDk games]] the group tackled earlier in the stream). slowbeef enters a room that the game notes a "nasty smell" is coming from as he's saying this, and five seconds later a jumpscare kills him.
* ThatCameOutWrong: During the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay:
-->'''slowbeef:''' "They call me The Fister!" ...Oh, shit, wait, I didn't mean that.
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Invoked. In ''Worst Retsupurae Ever'', slowbeef remarks on the laziness of the Pokemon animators, saying "They won't care, they already spent their 100 yen!" Later the guys are joking about Kabuto:
-->'''Proteus:''' What the fuck is a Kabuto? Isn't that that weird kind of Japanese theater where they get all- paint on their face and shit?\\
'''slowbeef:''' It might as well be.\\
'''Proteus:''' I know somebody's going to leave a fuckin' comment, by the way, that goes, "no you're thinking of Kabuki", so shut up, fuck you, don't even do it.\\
'''slowbeef:''' It's the same person who's gonna go, "You know, slowbeef, 100 yen's really not a lot of money."\\
'''Proteus:''' You know, I hope somebody actually put that fucking comment in before they watched the rest of the video.\\
'''slowbeef:''' They're gonna fuckin' delete it now, I know.\\
'''Proteus:''' You're gonna see like 27 comments have been deleted.
** The "That's So Kaizo!" videos gave us this gem:
--->'''slowbeef:''' Now maybe I'll two-star this video instead...I know someone in the comments is gonna say the stupid thing--alright, fine, thumbs down, or whatever they do on Website/YouTube.\\
'''Diabetus:''' Middle finger, actually.
** [[spoiler:Deliberately invoked]] in the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSd-9ZVbZA4 Huzzah!]]'' video.
** As the Wrongpurae of the ''Jurassic Park'' arcade game draws to a close, slowbeef realizes he's been referring to the Triceratops as a Stegosaurus for the entire game, and suspects everyone will leave comments to correct him. They did.
* ThanksgivingEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S1OXJSVfww "A Retsupurae Thanksgiving"]]
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: In the animation [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTosXPd9oJU Refund]], the character screams in a monotone "BITCH, GET THE FUCK OFF ME. DIE, BITCH, DIE. GO TO HELL, YOU LITTLE BITCH, DIE." Later in the video, it provoked the following discussion.
-->'''slowbeef:''' I-- maybe it was, like, how to get a refund... Like, "Don't be afraid to take back your pumpkins."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "This is an example of a defective product. Here's what you should do in this situation, ''bitch.''"
** They also did it before that.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Why didn't he just put a text that said ''I WAS DISPLEASED'' and save yourself some artwork, there?\\
'''Diabetus:''' "''MY SHOPPING EXPERIENCE WAS SUBPAR''."\\
'''slowbeef:''' "''Bitch''."\\
'''Diabetus:''' "Die."
** From the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-r6r2YALn0 Zelda]] video: "I like to throw in curses every so often, bitch."
** Abused by the [=LPer=] in slowbeef and @Voidburger's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is96HGUJWWA Mario Combat]] riff. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdXS-SWJ2aY Diabetus mentions that]] he and the "faggot"-spewing kid from "GOD HATES POOCHYENAS" would probably get along well.
* TitleDrop: In their ''VideoGame/{{T|heTrappedTrilogy}}rapped'' Retsuflash:
-->'''Narration:''' Why do I feel so... trapped?\\
'''Proteus:''' Oh, I see what you did there.\\
'''slowbeef:''' I can't believe that they actually did that.
** Later, during the third game of the series they throw in forced title drops to all three games in the series--Trapped, Pursuit and Escape--in immediate succession.
-->'''Dialla:''' Why do I feel so... trapped?\\
'''slowbeef:''' "W-''why do I feel so trapped?!''"\\
'''Proteus:''' I feel ''trapped''! Trapped in this ''pursuit''--\\
'''both:''' --and I have to ''escape''!
** Strangely averted in the Satanorium Retsufrash (one would expect a Newgrounds game with a title like that to be dropping it at every punctuation mark), which causes slowbeef to repeatedly mispronounce it as "sanatorium."
* TogetherInDeath: Joked about in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2ocE19YWhs Jack Slate's First Day on the Force]]" when a ''VideoGame/CrimePatrol'' {{mook}} dies clutching a box in a warehouse.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Aww, he was in love with that box.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Now they can be together forever!
* ToiletHumor: A RunningGag in their ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheDragon'' Wrongpurae involved the inexplicable fart noises the machines made. A door in the dark world of ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'' had a similar sound effect that they commented on as well.
** Their riff on ''VideoGame/DeepFear'' had a few fart jokes due to bubbles occasionally appearing behind John Mayor in underwater sections and a theory about air grenades. In part 3 of the wrongpurae, slowbeef brings up an anecdote about someone in his office who is apparently such a GassHole it affects other people's productivity.
* TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buUM916QRJk A Day in the Life of DarkSydePhil]] parodies Phil's inability to perform basic actions in games as well as his tendency to blame said games for his own incompetence by applying the same thing to real life actions such as starting up a car, unlocking an [=iPad=] or even eating pasta with a fork.
* {{Troll}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVGFkA5zjso "The Marios"]], which they discover that the [=LP=] was intentionally made to be horrible. The total derailment of their commentary is hilarious.
** There was another troll video RP at one point. It was an absolutely atrocious ''Super Mario Bros. 64'' LP by "[=SuperCrazyHealthBar=]", but this time, when slowbeef and Diabetus realized that he made it intentionally bad to be RP'd, they immediately privitized and cut all ties to it. It's a shame too, since it was a pretty good riffing (though it's been mirrored [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGRsUELHzyM here]]). It was mostly likely taken down because, while "The Marios" was [[SoBadItsGood cleverly done and entertaining to watch on its own]], the Mario 64 LP went on for ''over thirty'' videos, all of which were nigh-impossible to watch due to the horrific screechy audio.
-->'''slowbeef:''' It seems like it's a troll, except it went on for 33 videos. Like, he thought this was really funny.\\
'''Diabetus:''' [[TemptingFate No one carries on a joke that long.]]
* {{Troperiffic}}: How slowbeef and Diabetus describe Jimmy from ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'', very nearly right down to the name:
-->'''Diabetus:''' I'm sure the guy who calls himself 'the local wiseguy' is, in fact, the local wiseguy.\\
'''slowbeef:''' "By the way, I'm quote-unquote '[[TheMafia mobbed up]]'!"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "I'm a bit of a '[[CowboyCop loose cannon]]', they would say!"\\
'''slowbeef:''' "If you've ever seen ''Series/TheSopranos'', maybe? I'm like the guy on DVD 2"\\
'''Diabetus:''' "[[ShoutOut You'll find me all over]] Wiki/{{TV Tropes}}!"
** Upon watching the intro movie to ''VideoGame/EvilZone,'' they deduce that the game will feature just about every {{anime trope|s}} possible. Their hypothesis turns out to be more or less accurate.
* {{Understatement}}: [[invoked]]slowbeef's response to reading [=BearPigMan=]'s message regarding the "difficulty" of ''Paradigm Shift'': "So this looks like an annoying game to play."
* TheUnfavorite: [=BillyMC=], whose older brother, [=JacobMC=], is much more liked by his parents. To the point where Billy's Christmas present is two [=McDonald's=] French Fries that a hobo rubbed on his armpits. And the dog ate one. "You got [=JacobMC=] an Xbox 360!" "Well he's much better at Mario than you, and he's a Harvard graduate."
** Conveniently enough, there is a [[http://www.youtube.com/jacobmc jacobmc channel]] on Youtube which contains a few regular videos. Nevertheless, every comment section of his videos and profile is filled with avid [=BillyMC=] supporters yelling their abuse at the inactive Jacob.
* UnfortunateImplications: InUniverse.
** They basically have a field day with ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'''s many, ''many'' sexist implications. They're also quite disturbed at the blatant Freudian symbolism.
** ''VideoGame/JackOrlando'''s attempt to use DeliberateValuesDissonance to show the homophobic and racist bigotry of 1930's America backfires since much of that dialogue is coming from the mouth of the [[{{Jerkass}} already-unlikable player character]]. It just makes slowbeef and Diabetus hate him even more.[[invoked]]
--->'''Diabetus''': It's rare that you want to root ''against'' the hero of the story, but here we are! I'd like Jack to be in prison for a long time.
* UnfortunateNames:
** Diabetus' real name is apparently John Assfucker.
** Hammerbolt Joe and Crystal Boy, from the ''Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra'' longplay.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Is this supposed to make me afraid of Crystal Boy? Because his name is still Crystal Boy.
** ''Soldier Boyz'' has squad members Butts, Lamb and Brophy.
** At the start of the ''VideoGame/HopkinsFBI'' wrongpurae, Mr. DJB giggles at [[BigBad Bernie Berkson]]'s name, but quickly takes it back once he realized [[NukeEm what Bernie did]].
* UnusualEuphemism: Alexander's "Magic Map" in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVI''.
--->'''Narrator:''' Alexander pulls out his "Magic Map".\\
'''Diabetus:''' Yeah, that's a euphemism if I've ever heard one.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Every time he says that, I'm expecting something horrible!
* VerbalTic: A few forced examples as part of a gag:
-->''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt2uyDqbA-Q Second Kaizo Mario World Retsupurae]]'': [=SNES9X=]\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vms1rY9gmZw I Wanna Be The Guy Retsupurae]]'': Please Stop Let's Playing I Wanna Be The Guy\\
''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8d1zkUusqY Battletoads Retsupurae, with 007's shyer, nerdier brother.]]'': Battletoads. Battletoads. BATTLETOADS. Battletoads.
** Diabetus ''really'' likes to say "Battletoads", by the way - he does it several times completely unprompted during both his ''Battletoads'' [=LPs=] and his MST of the ''Battletoads'' pilot.
** As mentioned above, slowbeef demonstrated in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6a4y1axHsk "Resident Seavil 2"]] that his habit of narrating illogical or abrupt story transitions with "MeanwhileBackAtThe" is more deep-seated than he realized when he unsuccessfully attempted to not say it throughout the whole video.
** slowbeef says "y'know?" or "know what I mean?" almost constantly in the middle of casual conversation, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlCdP5amh50 during Retsutalk.]]
* ViewersAreMorons: Justified in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyK3UNb4I80 Nightmare House]]'' where the solution to a puzzle is blatantly told to you on a nearby note, due to it being another MoonLogicPuzzle. Which kind of defeats the purpose.
-->'''slowbeef:''' Now, seriously--you remade the game and you kept these shit puzzles in? Like, you had the whole opportunity!\\
'''General Ironicus:''' It would be really clever and keep people out if he didn't just tape the instructions to the wall right next to it.
** Pointed out in the Cobra Wrongupurae when the game showed a flashback to something right after the game told Cobra what had happened.
-->'''Diabetus''': You had to flash back to this? How stupid do you think we are!?
* ViolationOfCommonSense: In Arrival in Hell, slowbeef and Diabetus have to kill a demon (with ''burning flesh'') - by attacking it with a ''[[AerosolFlamethrower deodorant flamethrower]]''.
--> '''slowbeef:''' We use the matches with the deodorant to get a flamethrower, to kill the beast with the ''burning flesh''!
* VisualPun: In "A Day in the Life of [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]]", one scene has Psychedelic Eyeball draw a dog with two floppy ears. As in floppy disks.
* WhamLine: From "The Marios":
-->'''Luwiigi Master:''' *laughter* Oh my God, I'm sorry, people, it's just that I keep thinking about all these other Let's Players who, like, got made fun of by Retsupurae...\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''[[OhCrap Aww, shit!]] *commentary proceeds to derail entirely*''
** And another from "So there's that":
--> '''[[SelfInsert Raymond:]]''' [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Linoan]], I love you.
** A few days earlier than "The Marios" comes this example from "Huzzah!":
-->'''slowbeef:''' So, I know we were gonna wait until the 9 minute mark, but, um... I-I thi-I think they've seen enough. [[spoiler:Should we tell 'em?]]\\
'''Diabetus:''' I... Yeah, I- I think; we can't keep this up any longer.\\
'''slowbeef:''' Yeah, uh, [[spoiler:we actually haven't been watching any video. We're gonna splice this right over ''any'' one of [=DeceasedCrab=]'s videos.]]
** Duke Crabtree's immortal line from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVlt_F62Pao&list=PLo4M1tlpv9ruM7k2Pr_0auqL8IveRE5gl#t=3284 the final chapter of]] ''[[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLo4M1tlpv9ruM7k2Pr_0auqL8IveRE5gl Ambition]]'': [[spoiler:"Because I'm a terrorist!"]]
** After spending [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHX0loqttHw the entire video]] listening to George Wood's contradictory schizophrenic ramblings about [[VideoGame/ToyStory the Toy Story game]], he makes one comment that genuinely shocks Slowbeef and Diabetus:
--->'''George Wood''': Bottom line, when all is said and done, [[spoiler:''Toy Story'' has better gameplay than either of the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' games]].
--->'''slowbeef / Diabetus''': [[FreakOut WAIT, WHAT?!]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Diabetus gave slowbeef a big one after slowbeef deliberately withheld the Holocaust and rape plot points from him during their riff of ''I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream'', since it resulted in Diabetus accidentally making a ''lot'' of [[DudeNotFunny bad jokes]].
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: According to slowbeef, he and Diabetus got drunk and woke up to find that they had recorded an hour and a half retsupurae on an LP of ''VideoGame/LastAlert'' with no player commentary.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: [[invoked]] [[InUniverse Basically the entire point]] of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq1uiYXWIGY this video]], where slowbeef and [=TieTuesday=] poke fun at a Fun Kids Smile [[WebAnimation web cartoon]] that uses [[UsefulNotes/{{Plagiarism}} plagiarized Disney characters]] and "jokes" about DomesticAbuse, sex and ToiletHumor. Even worse, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5If1ZWfNoJM there's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnsyFyLcqj8 more]].
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Their reaction to the inexplicable voice of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9w88AnisKvM BlazeDragon132]].
** There's also this little tidbit:
-->'''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAMlb7geKV8 Goldskarr:]]''' Actually, I remember playing [''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}''] on the Super 'Tendo...\\
'''Diabetus:''' ...The Super '''Tendo'''?\\
'''slowbeef:''' What the hell accent is that?\\
'''Diabetus:''' Uh, a drunk British person trying to sound American?\\
'''slowbeef:''' Sounds to me like an American who burned his tongue on soup trying to sound British.
** They also have trouble with the main character's accent in Arrival in Hell. They eventually conclude that he's Australian.
** Most viewers' reaction to [=PsychedelicEyeball=]'s accent. [[note]]He's French Canadian, if you're wondering.[[/note]]
** Their reaction to Mrs. Ramirez in the Wrongpurae of ''[[VideoGame/DarkSeed Dark Seed II]]''. They eventually narrow it down from "European Mish-Mash" to "Vaguely Irish/Swedish", but have definitely ruled out any sort of Hispanic accent.
** With Chip and Ironicus, one of their targets was [=Cauchemar89=], who apparently had an Swiss German accent; one that was quite bizzare to them, to the point of making 'Skaetbord Skampurr' a running gag throughout the video, similar to above examples.
* WhosOnFirst: In "Mass Erect", DJB jokingly interprets Diabetus reading a review by "youngerme" to mean that Diabetus was claiming to have written the review in the past:
-->'''Diabetus:''' by youngerme4427: "sex my favorite"\\
'''DJB:''' "Younger me?" You wrote that one, then?\\
'''Diabetus:''' Yeah. What can I say? Sex my favorite.
* {{Why Did it Have to Be S|nakes}}piders?: Diabetus, it seems. During a conversation in ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow'' with a talking spider, he comments:
-->'''Diabetus:''' You know, I think I'd have a different response to this. You know what that would be?\\
'''slowbeef:''' What?\\
'''Diabetus:''' "'''''AHHHHHHH!'''''"
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Uttered by slowbeef in the first part of the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zj_fxG8kU2c Escape RP]]'' when [[KillHimAlready Dialla has Dan McNeely at gunpoint]]. Subverted by Dialla actually taking the shot.
* TheWikiRule: [[invoked]]Discussed in the VideoGame/HauntedMuseum Wrongpurae, as slowbeef is shocked to discover that the game (technically) [[http://panicmuseum.wikia.com/wiki/Panic_Museum_Wiki has its own wiki.]]
* TheWorfEffect: The first scene with the titular character in ''VideoGame/PsychoKiller'' involves the protagonist kicking him in the head, knocking his machete out of his hands.
-->'''slowbeef:''' But we beat up the killer. He's not threatening anymore. He's really more just like a Psycho Jerk.
* WorldOfPun: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]]'' was chock full of lame Bruce Willis puns. Eventually they just end up using random movie/TV show titles.
* WorthIt: Diabetus comments that [[spoiler:the head explosion]] in ''Dark Seed II'' made sitting through the game worthwhile. This also happens with some of the other games that are Wrongpuraed.
* WrongOnSoManyLevels: slowbeef's opinion of the [[MagicalComputer Busco quadnary]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVhHNVguMWo Kickstarter]].
-->'''slowbeef''': ''(livid)'' I can't even get base enough to describe why he's so ''wrong''.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: In ''Retsupurae 3000'' they explain this with "Vowels are much scarcer in TheFuture".
* YouDidntSeeThat: In LetsPlay/BillyMC's Christmas Adventure, both slowbeef and Diabetus are shocked when it seems that Billy has used a savestate to fix a mistake. They both admonish him and tell him that they'll look away ''this time''... [[note]]It was actually a strangely-placed edit.[[/note]]
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: The very first thing said in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=619onOU5ltk Guestsupurae: Erik vs. TCarreon998]]" upon seeing the [=LPer=]'s setup:
-->'''slowbeef:''' ...You're fucking kidding me, right?
** During the ''Metroid Beginings'' [sic] retsufrash, slowbeef and Diabetus log on to Newgrounds to see the review scores.
-->'''Diabetus:''' Alright, I gotta - ''Three and a half out of five!''\\
'''slowbeef:''' ''*laughing*'' Where? The first one? No, wait...totally?\\
'''Diabetus:''' No, I mean, just - aggregate.\\
''*Beat*''\\
'''slowbeef:''' You're ''kidding'' me.
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: in the ''VideoGame/{{Kaizo|MarioWorld}} [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Mario 64]]'' videos, they jokingly use "kaizo" an awful lot in many varying contexts. (For the record, it just means "hacked", which nobody can really deny the game in the videos ''is'', no matter how poorly.)
-->'''slowbeef:''' I like how he stole 'kaizo', like that's the ubiquitous term for bad romhacks that are more annoying to play than anything.
* YourHeadASplode: This recurring trope of slowbeef's [=LPs=] has finally made its presence in Retsupurae in the form of the Dark World counterpart of Mike Dawson's mother, serving as the ''Dark Seed II'' longplay's only SugarWiki/{{Funny|Moments}} SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.
* ZeroesAndOnes: Apparently, the pitchman in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVhHNVguMWo Kickstarter Nonstarters: The New Era of Modern Computing]]" not only believes in this trope, but he's convinced that those zeroes and ones are ''actual'' zeroes and ones (instead of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_code an abstract concept]]) and has based his idea of "busco quadnary" on adding two more numbers to binary. slowbeef, who has dabbled in some programming, is absolutely flabbergasted by this, and that's not even the only thing wrong with the pitch video.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Retsutalk]]
* AbsenteeActor: slowbeef is not present in Episodes 3 (or its extension, Episode 3.5), 12, and 13. Diabetus is absent in episodes 16 and 32.
** AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Episode 23 features neither slowbeef nor Diabetus, but is done by Ironicus, his fiance, and LetsPlay/ChipCheezum about [=C2E2.=]
* BadassBoast: Dave_o makes one for slowbeef when discussing how dangerous Camden, New Jersey is, complete with an action voice.
-->'''dave_o:''' slowbeef works out there.
* BaitAndSwitch: Milked for all its worth whenever there's a big issue.
* BileFascination: InUniverse, slowbeef describes himself as an ironic fan of [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]].
-->'''slowbeef:''' He never bottoms out! It's amazing!
* BlasphemousBoast: In one of the episodes where dave_o is present, he, Diabetus, and slowbeef get into talking about how they consider the [[ChurchOfHappyology Church Of Scientology]] to be a ScamReligion. It gets to this trope when dave_o suggests that [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} Joseph Smith]] beat L. Ron Hubbard to the punch.
* ButtMonkey: Proton Jon.
* TheCameo: Jeff Lupetin ([[VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}} Gillian Seed's voice actor]] provides a short intro to Episode 9.
** Josh Mandel ([[VideoGame/KingsQuest the original voice actor for King Graham]]) provides Episode 17's intro.
** LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun throws in a few words in Episode 24 via Proton Jon.
* EvilLaugh: In Episode 36, [=NorthernLion=] has a button that produces the laugh from ''Videogame/DungeonLand''.
* FantasticRacism: Toward the end of the first Dungeon World episode, Diabetus animates a statue and tells it to kill all non-humans. [[spoiler: The statue later shows up as a horrible monster, which leads to a BrickJoke that it's a metaphor for the evil of racism.]]
* FixItInPost: A running gag in Episode 8.
* FetishRetardant: [[invoked]] In Episode 78, where the duo discusses ''Series/AmericanHorrorStory'', slowbeef notices that the show's attempts to sexualize Jessica Lange is this to him, because Lange happens to look a lot like his own mother, making said attempts feel very weird and off-putting to him.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: A lot of what Dave_O says.
* TheGhost: Proteus is apparently slated to show up on the show eventually, but circumstances (including apparently becoming a father) have continuously gotten in the way of him showing up.
* HilaritySues: In Episode 15, their discussion about Sega turns into this.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: In Episode 27, the guest Tim Miller tells a short story about how he translated a ''Shinobi-X'' video into Japanese and gave the translation to a friend/editor to see if he got everything right. She was apparently quite confused by the line "ninja hand fart", among others.
* TheJerseyDevil: Dave_o theorizes that slowbeef is this in episode 8.
* LowerDeckEpisode: The "theme" of episodes 3 and 3.5, where Diabetus and General Ironicus talk about being "LP sidekicks" to slowbeef and [=ChipCheezum=] respectively.
* MadlibsCatchPhrase: It's the "''Series/BreakingBad'' of X".
* NeverSayThatAgain: slowbeef's reaction to Diabetus trying PokemonSpeak, and when Diabetus tried to impersonate Yoda.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Discussed in the case of [=DarkSydePhil=], where Diabetus says that Phil possibly plays up his ineptitude because it garners views and reactions. slowbeef however doubts it since Phil acts like that both in and out of games and that it would be fairly difficult to keep up the act all the time without some sign of slipping up.
* PoesLaw: Discussed between slowbeef and [[Webvideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Woolie]] in episode 48, where Woolie describes a point where they attempted to parody the trend of [=LPers=] relying on overexaggerated reactions only for their fans to mistake it as the real deal and calling them out for it.
* PokemonSpeak: slowbeef says "when you're drunk, repeating their names is the funniest goddamn thing ever", and Diabetus jokingly says that's how he speaks when he's drunk.
* ARareSentence: slowbeef says he has trouble believing that he's saying the phrase "LetsPlay/ProtonJon was tricked into doing a ''Super Mario World'' ROM hack LP."
* RPGEpisode: Episodes 45 & 49 consist of slowbeef, Diabetus, [=ChipCheezum=], General Ironicus, and 100 HOGS AGREE playing the game Dungeon World.
* RunningGag: Transitioning with "so there's that."
** The ''Breaking Bad'' comparisons in Episode 2, and Diabetus fixing things in post in episode 8.
** Diabetus mentioning that he'll fix or edit entire chunks of the recording out in post.
** slowbeef gushing about the SA ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' thread... and in later episodes, slowbeef complaining about how he's gotten fed up with it.
** All of the "Live from PAX" episodes begin with the duo and whoever they're with reading aloud Craigslists ads for "casual encounters."
* SamusIsAGirl: In Episode 27, Diabetus and Cherrydoom are surprised to find out that guest [=MelodicWaffle=] is a girl.
* ShoutOut: Episode 9 has a segment where slowbeef and Diabetus give shout outs to some Let's Plays on the forums that they enjoy.
** In multiple episodes, slowbeef gushes over ''VisalNovel/DanganRonpa''[[labelnote:*]]which [[InvertedTrope he eventually went back on]] due to the Website/{{Tumblr}} FanDumb ruining the SA thread for him[[/labelnote]], Diabetus over ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', and Dave_O over ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''.
** All the ''Series/BreakingBad'' references. (''Retsutalk'' is the ''Breaking Bad'' of podcasts.)
** Episode 14 is more or less slowbeef advertising ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''.
** In episode 34, Lowtax sums up his opinion on scarecam [=LPs=] with, "You'll scream to anything," in reference to the Music/DeadMilkmen song, "Instant Club Hit (You'll Dance to Anything)."
* SpecialGuest: Frequently.
** Recurring guests:
*** General Ironicus: Episodes 3, 3.5, 13, 23, 45, 49
*** [=ChipCheezum=]: Episodes 6, 13, 23, 45, 49
*** Dave_O: Episodes 4-8
*** [=ProtonJon=]: Episodes 8, 15, 24
*** Cherrydoom: Episodes 19-21, 27, 29.
** Dectilon and Phiggle in episode 12, Psychedelic Eyeball in episode 14, orenronen in episode 16, and [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] in episode 32.
** Parodied in episodes 26 and 27; [[spoiler:the "special guest" is slowbeef both times]].
** Lowtax in episode 34.
** LetsPlay/NorthernLion in episode 36.
** [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] in episode 37.
** LetsPlay/{{Supergreatfriend}} in Episode 39.
** Michael and Ray of Creator/AchievementHunter[=/=]Creator/RoosterTeeth in Episode 41.
** Woolie of Webvideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay in Episode 48. Pat in Episode 54.
** Zorak (anime/manga mod of SA) in Episode 50.
** [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling]] in episode 55.
* TakeThat: Diabetus takes a shot at Creator/JeffDunham, comparing him favorably to LetsPlay/PewDiePie, though as if he's surprised to be doing so.
** It's hard to find a podcast where they '''don't''' take at least one cheap shot at [=PewDiePie=] or [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]].
* UnPerson: In episode 8, they jokingly try to turn [=ChipCheezum=] into one of these.
* ValuesDissonance: Discussed in Episode 16 regarding how the Japanese handle {{Spoiler}}s compared to North America. Basically, spoiling something in the Japanese section of the internet blackballs the user and Japanese forums can have separate threads on a game: one where people are starting the game and one where people have finished the game and can freely reveal spoilers. [[invoked]]
* VulgarHumor: {{Discussed|Trope}} in Episode 10, where slowbeef argues that [=PewDiePie=] is overtly bringing this up in regards to [[BlackComedyRape rape]] and other vulgar jokes in a misguided attempt to be funny.
[[/folder]]

!!!Other Retsupuraers

[[folder:Chip Cheezum and General Ironicus]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Chip.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pa0NpLFpw8o#t=159s Retsupurae Sonic Advance 2]], after sitting through two-and-a-half minutes of repetitive commentary about the level, Ironicus asks for the [=LPer=] to say something new. Less than 15 seconds later, he unfortunately gets his wish. [[note]]The [=LPer=] starts thinking that Eggman kidnapped Cream's mother [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty to be a sexual object]][[/note]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: During the RP of Pac Man World 2
-->'''General Ironicus:''' You have 39 lives! This is clearly a baby game for babies!
* EyeCatch: The ''Elemental Goddess'' special episode MST included one that had bad FanArt and a "Joke Fan Art" done in the Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann style by [[Webcomic/{{Hiimdaisy}} Peachi]].
* {{Filler}}: Remember, kids, having long videos is not the same thing as having lots of worthwhile content. Particularly evident in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxHcF9ePiQo nacho]]'', where the host is already done three minutes in, but stays in the level for ''seven more minutes'', doing ''absolutely nothing'' so he can fill up the [=YouTube=] time limit. With this in mind, it's no surprise that he's spent over a year [=LPing=] ''VideoGame/BanjoTooie''.
* FollowTheLeader
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In [=ChipCheezum's=] riff on the first episode of ''Elemental Goddess'', he makes a random joke about how much he hates Jews, followed by Ironicus telling him "we're not doing that episode yet." Flash-forward to several months later and the riff of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAVdTZBzEm4 The Special Episode]] and, well...
* FreudianSlip: Chip joked that the guy who did an LP of VideoGame/{{Pong}} was only allowed to watch news broadcasts from decades ago. After accidentally saying he had to watch ''nude'' broadcasts from decades ago.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Amazingly enough, ''{{subverted|Trope}}'' in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlC0eJ6m-1M&t=2m28s Yowie wowie!!!]]'' Justified, though, because the [[YaoiFangirl girls in question]] were {{cosplay}}ing as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto and Sasuke.]]
-->'''General Ironicus:''' This is the world's best argument against girl on girl action!\\
[...]\\

If there's one place in the world where SturgeonsLaw is in full effect, it's TheInternet. In an age where just about anyone can create content and post it for others to see, the online community can serve as a prime example of quantity over quality. This naturally extends to the LetsPlay community as well, with new Website/YouTube videos posted left and right filled with asinine commentary or played on release date, Series/MacGyver-like technical solutions such as filming a TV screen on a camcorder, barely edited material with minutes upon minutes of {{filler}}, and worst of all, barely any quality control to sort out the good videos from the bad ones. One should take it as a rite of passage to view at least one video game walkthrough narrated by a squeaky-voiced white college student who imagines himself to be the next Bob Saget, and may the Lord help you if they try and sing along to the game's background music.

One of their remarks is how it had state of the art graphics and only 2 MB of RAM.

*** ''Ihsoy'' is simply very hard to follow, as it includes inane descriptions of useless information - such as the narrator's trip to [=GameStop=] to buy the game - features incredibly bad action-movie style banter between the narrator and the monster, and the majority of the story is spent with Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Princess Peach, and Bowser being possessed and un-possessed over and over again with no apparent rhyme or reason for why any of it is happening. All of the possessed characters' names are also backwards, making the possessed Princess Peach's name "Hcaep Ssecnirp", which (as the helpful pronunciation guide in the fic tries to point out) sounds like /hkeɪp sɛknɜrp/. It certainly isn't helped by the fact that the BigBad turns out to be [[spoiler:'''Reznor''', which is almost unanimously considered one of the easiest bosses in an entire franchise that is full of easy bosses, and doesn't even have the benefit of having an intimidating appearance either]].

*** ''Blood Whistle'' includes strange descriptions of laughing fish, ritualistically suicidal Goombas, PurpleProse to an absurd degree, and attempts to create atmospheric horror by changing all water into blood and scattering random demons and pentagrams everywhere. The main character is also far more profoundly effected by the game's content than is probably realistic, to the point of committing suicide [[spoiler:by ''stabbing himself in the neck with his old recorder'']] after he stops playing the game.
*** Then came a fourth one, ''[[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Yellow Devil]]'' involving a Cut Man who can somehow breathe and suffocate (despite Cut Man being a robot) and copious usage of blood in an attempt to make the story more frightening or tense. It got to the point that, before slowbeef nearly finished a descriptive sentence, Diabetus interjected with "blood" half a second before the word appeared in the story. Cue the two breaking out in a fit of laughter.
*** The fifth one, ''Ladder to Hell'', features a protagonist whose brother commits suicide and leaves him a copy of ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'', which apparently causes him to get over ''his brother's death'' instantly. [[spoiler:It turns out that his brother was TheUnfavorite and ''possessed the cartridge'' to get back at the protagonist. [[MisplacedRetribution As opposed to the]] [[ParentalNeglect parents who neglected him]], [[SarcasmMode of]] [[WhatAnIdiot course]].]]
*** The sixth one, ''Tracy'', features a ''VideoGame/MegaMan3'' cartridge possessed by the ghost of a young girl who somehow managed to beat her parents to death with a plastic NES controller. By the end it turns out to be a bizarre attempt at some sort of romance story, apparently having forgotten the horror aspect altogether.
*** The series took on a new format in the form of "Slowbeef's House of Horror," debuting with ''0bl1v10n.exe'', a story about a master hacker whose "hacking" abilities initially seem to be limited to downloading obviously-unsafe torrents and mounting disk images (with great speed, despite complaining about the slowness of his internet connection). Of course, come the end of the story, his hacking skills have grown to such a degree that he is able to literally ''destroy entire websites'' at will. Other highlights include [[spoiler:him miraculously not coming under suspicion for the death of his (unnamed) best friend - despite the fact that threatening messages were sent to the friend from the protagonist's Steam account the previous day -- and the protagonist simply destroying his computer to successfully defeat the uber-powerful, demonic antagonist]]. The story also seemed to be playing with the IdiotBall, as the protagonist claimed that he never broke the law when he found out that he was banned on Steam, yet [[{{Irony}} he]] ''[[DigitalPiracyIsEvil pirated]]'' [[{{Irony}} video games off the Internet]], which is a felony.
*** The second ''Slowbeef's House of Horror'' is a ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' creepypasta. Enough said.
*** ''I HATE YOU'' claims that what the narrator found in ''Super Mario World'' wasn't the result of a hack or a haunting, but a legit part of the game. This might work if they were playing an actual copy of the game and not on an emulator.
*** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzPw_vb2DlU It Wasn't Lavender Town]]'' tries to create a frightening story using [[PurpleProse fancy descriptions]] and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness big words]]. The result ends up being more confusing than scary.
*** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4vl-GcyU8o Blood Pichu]]'' also includes inane and pointless information, such as the narrator saying they had an interest in "video game controversies", which never comes up again. The narrator also claims they're a huge Pokemon fan and tries to prove it by saying they have a box with all the Pokemon games and then proceeds to list ''every game from Red and Blue to [=SoulSilver=] and [=HeartGold=]''. But then they make a novice mistake and claim that the Pichu that somehow appeared in a Gen 1 game was a Gen ''3'' Pokemon. The narrator is also seemingly killed by the Pichu in the real world and somehow becomes one with the game?
** They also have this reaction to several SurvivalHorror games that they cover for their Wrongpuraes, including ''VideoGame/DeepFear'', the ''Franchise/AloneInTheDark'' games, ''VideoGame/{{Galerians}}'', ''VideoGame/ObsCure 2'' and ''VideoGame/ClockTower 2'', thanks to all kinds of {{Narm}} and/or primitive graphics.

* NotSoStoic: Diabetus is known for being one of the calmest of slowbeef's co-commentators. When he breaks, something has gone very wrong. For example, in the ''VideoGame/DarkSeed II'' Wrongpurae, when the longplayer gets him bored by traversing through the same mirror maze for the umpteenth time and then edits it so Mike actually ''goes backwards'' through part of it:
-->'''Diabetus''': Wait, was there editing there?\\
'''slowbeef''': Yes.\\
'''Diabetus''': ''...Editing what?! More'' mirror maze? "Wow, I got through that a little ''too'' quickly that time."

* OverlyLongGag: The beginning of ''[[VideoGame/TheTrappedTrilogy Pursuit]]'', where slowbeef and Proteus get stuck in Dialla's apartment for several minutes - and then, as soon as they're actually allowed to leave, immediately get sent ''right back in'' for a different plot event.

If there's one place in the world where SturgeonsLaw is in full effect, it's TheInternet. In an age where just about anyone can create content and post it for others to see, the online community can serve as a prime example of quantity over quality. This naturally extends to the LetsPlay community as well, with new Website/YouTube videos posted left and right filled with asinine commentary or played on release date, MacGyver-like technical solutions such as filming a TV screen on a camcorder, barely edited material with minutes upon minutes of {{filler}}, and worst of all, barely any quality control to sort out the good videos from the bad ones.
