* CriticalResearchFailure: Defied as much as possible InUniverse; the show prioritizes accuracy far over speed when it comes to reporting stories of immense weight, usually waiting a day or two to solidify as many facts as possible. And even when they do slip up (for example, in the show where Phil discusses the death of Music/{{Shinee}}'s Kim Jong-hyun, the video accidentally includes [[NamesTheSame a different K-pop singer also named Kim Jong-hyun]]), they take it very seriously.

** Some kid with an over-inflated ego used his fans to mass-dislike a YouTube video on Twitter; Phil sarcastically tweeted about it, only for the kid to get angry and tweet back, but also tagging Child Protective Services. Phil then tore the kid a new one and asked if anyone knew the kid's parents so he could speak with them.

* SellOut: Phil consistently defies this, refusing to diminish his content or perspective for societal or monetary gain. He vocally refused to censor himself in light of his videos beginning to get demonetized, and in response to a fan asking if he was going to be in the 2016 edition of ''[=YouTube=] Rewind'', Philip made a response that greatly implied that [=YouTube=] approached him, asked him to make a pro-Hillary video, and kicked him out of ''Rewind'' after he refused to do so.

Added DiffLines:

** Phil is also very clear that anyone he is either sponsored by, or endorsed, needs to be credible and legit. When criticism towards Better Help, an online therapy based website, was brought up due to the wording of their legal disclaimers that made it seem like they were not being truthful, Phil removed his sponsorship from them, and requested that he, and an independent journalist be allowed to investigate the issue. Doesn't matter how positive his experience was before, he does not want to sponsor someone/something that is not credible.
