* TakeThat: [[https://www.facebook.com/necrocritic/posts/1027810750681599 Apparently,]] WebOriginal/TheIrateGamer once sent Necro an unsolicited video cameo, asking him to feature it in one of his reviews. He even told him what context to use the cameo in as well as suggesting what specifically to review. Needless to say, Necro was very offended by this gesture. So instead, he used the cameo clip in his Film/TheSantaClause2 review in a joke at IG's expense.

* DrivenToSuicide: At the end of his ''WesternAnimation/VanHelsingTheLondonAssignment'' review, he swears to chug a bottle of cyanide if he ever sees another ''Film/VanHelsing''-related media. [[spoiler:Suddenly, the ''Van Helsing'' tie-in comic magically appears in his hand, and he follows through on his promise. Unfortunately, what he drank ended up being Diet Mountain Dew, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which is an even more excruciating fate]].]]

* OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo: Parodied in his ''Film/SpiderMan3'' review, where he constantly refers to [[ComicBook/GreenGoblin New Goblin]] with sequel names of increasing ridiculousness; including [[Film/TheMatrixReloaded Green Goblin: Reloaded]], [[Film/Breakin2ElectricBoogaloo Goblin 2: Electric Boogaloo]], and [[Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday Harry Goes To Hell: The Final Goblin]].

** He followed up on it with a similar joke in the next video, also from the footage sent to him.
-->'''Devil:''' That's right, folks. The titular [[Film/TheSantaClause Escape Clause]] was just a poor excuse to make this movie into a cheap, crappy knockoff of Film/ItsAWonderfulLife. And trust me, as an internet reviewer, I know a thing or two about cheap, crappy knockoffs.
-->'''IG:''' ''(indignant)'' Really?


* LargeHamAnnouncer: Devil Critic's performance in general tends to evoke this on the rare occasion that he ends up reviewing something.

He tried to use it again to get through ''The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (2006)'', but [[ItMakesSenseInContext since he wasn't gaming]], it turned him into Devil Critic.

Added DiffLines:

* InflationNegation: Briefly mentioned in his ''Christmas Shoes'' review.
-->'''Kid:''' ''[Five dollars] is a lot of money. A real whole lot.''
-->'''Necro:''' ''Yeah. During TheFifties, maybe.''
** To be fair, the movie was set during TheEighties, but even then $5 wasn't considered a "real whole lot of money".


Added DiffLines:

* OneDegreeOfSeparation: He directly references the SixDegreesOfKevinBacon game to point out how ludicrously convenient it is how every character in ''The Christmas Shoes'' just happens to know each other.

Added DiffLines:

** The boy from ''The Christmas Shoes'' decides to collect cans and recycle them in order to buy the titular footwear. Necro does the math and points out that he'd need to collect 400 cans[[labelnote:*]]450 if you account for sales tax[[/labelnote]] to pull that off.


* ItsAWonderfulPlot: Discussed and parodied in his ''[[Film/TheSantaClause Santa Clause 3]]'' review.

** Said review also provides an interesting subversion: Necro's existence has practically no bearing on the world whatsoever. The only thing that changes is the fact that Devil is running the show now. [[spoiler:Of course the guy telling him this was just lying to make him miserable before killing him.]]
