Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: [[https://youtu.be/D5tUHdUgAcI This video]] features the guys exploring an abandoned power plant, and the camera points at the door to a shadowed room.
-->'''Bryan''': This dark area is where we saw the sensors leading to, so we'll stay out of there for now.\\
([[JumpScare Cue loud]], [[HellIsThatNoise hellish]] [[InstantlyProvenWrong alarm going off]]. The two start running.)\\
'''Bryan''': [[OhCrap Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!]]


* BerserkButton: Downplayed. Both hosts have a thorough dislike of drop ceilings, especially when they cover up more unique or artistic architecture, and will typically make fun of any examples they encounter.



** If they can't outright hide the faces of others they happen to come across by keeping them out of frame, they'll blur or block them as well.



* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: One episode is based around driving the supposedly paranormal Clinton Road in New Jersey. No urban exploration to speak of there.

** And investigation on ''Bumps in the Night'' culminated in a fair bit of creepy noises and... ''something'' likely being behind a certain door. It was likely a homeless person living in the building (and the hosts say as much), but it's eerie regardless.

Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsScarier:
** During one exploration, the duo start to hear footsteps above them. A little unnerving, but they figure it's just scrappers and begin to be more cautious. It's only when they find an abandoned wallet full of recent documents and cards that they decide to explore another nearby building for a while.

* ParanormalInvestigation: One of the earlier, short-lived segments on the channel, ''Bumps in the Night'', sought to combine urban exploration with paranormal investigation. Bryan and Michael are both skeptical of ghosts and such, but figured they might as well try it out.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorTract: Some videos venture into this, when the hosts (usually Michael) express admiration for the artistry of older buildings and disappointment that newer architecture tends to feel "disposable".

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAppeal: Bryan and Michael have an interest in mechanical keyboards, and will highlight any they happen to find, especially to comment on the feel of the keys.

Added DiffLines:

* LonelyPianoPiece: Some of their videos feature a recurring slow piece of piano music over cinematic shots of the location being explored.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag:
** Discovering chairs that are "just chillin'."
** Finding Christmas decorations, even in unlikely locations.

Added DiffLines:

* AngryGuardDog: They encountered quite a few while exploring some areas in China, though fortunately the dogs were smaller and more of a nuisance than anything.

!!Provides examples of:
* AbandonedArea: Of course. It's the main focus of the channel.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Earlier videos are less stylistically consistent and noticeably not as serious as newer ones.
* {{Pixellation}}:
** The hosts typically don't reveal the locations of the areas they explore, both as a safety precaution for other (possibly less-experienced) explorers and to not aid anyone with harmful intent, like vandals and arsonists. If this can't be avoided solely by not saying the location, they'll blur out any signage or other text that might give it away.
** They also blur out sensitive information, such as old patient records in abandoned hospitals.
* SceneryGorn: Again, the main draw of the channel is abandoned, rotting buildings and other structures.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: One episode is based around driving the supposedly paranormal Clinton Road in New Jersey. No urban exploration to speak of there.
