Added DiffLines:

* IKnowYourTrueName: Defied. 2 has ranted before about how people think that knowing his real name is "Matthew Davis" somehow has a power over him. While pretty much everyone calls him "2" (including his own mother), he doesn't really mind being referred to as "Matthew"; he'd just prefer you call him "2" instead.


-->"You know, I get a lot of people asking me about stuff I hate now. You know, they'll write to me and say, 'Hey, what do you think about deforestation?' . . . Just about anything you can think of. And that's cool, because now it's like my ''job'' to hate shit, and I'm good at it, so it's all cool."

** The excuse of "[[BileFascination it's so horrible I can't look away]]" when justifying looking at something gross or disturbing. 2 says "the rest of us got over that psychology ages ago."

* LighterAndSofter: Several of his rants and rant videos are about personal annoyances that he's encountered as opposed to cultural problems. One rant was about how a woman annoyed him when he was trying to buy olives at a grocery store.
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: He kind of loses the plot towards the end of his rant about yiffing (specifically, that he wishes people would put more effort into it). 2 then just ends the rant, saying he wants everyone to pretend he was going somewhere with it.



* RantComedy: Well, he ''is'' 2, the Ranting Gryphon (emphasis on "ranting").

* RantComedy: Well, he ''is'' 2, the Ranting Gryphon (emphasis on "ranting"). Much of his more popular work comes from ranting about topics he doesn't like.


Added DiffLines:

* StopBeingStereotypical: His rant on gay pride. As a gay man himself, 2 agrees with the stated goal of acceptance and less discrimination for LBGT people. However, 2 also believes that gay pride parades are just making things worse, since members of the pride parades are "making it look like the rainbow limp-wristed S&M apocalypse is coming".


* AnimationAgeGhetto: [[invoked]]His rant on ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' was about an experience where he saw the titular movie, only for a woman to treat him with [[PaedoHunt suspicion of being a child molester]] because he was there by himself. 2 spends the rest of the rant arguing against the mentality that animation is only for children.

** The opinion that "cartoons are for kids." He devoted an entire rant to this based on an experience from a movie theater after watching ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', and usually ends his stand-up comedy specials arguing against this mindset.

Added DiffLines:

* RantInducingSlight: He admits that there's no point to his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEe_WuTkmfY Olives]] rant, but the incident that inspired it was so stupid he just had to talk about it.

** [[invoked]]People who use beliefs to mock or belittle everyone else. He once performed a rant on a furry who thought he was actually a dragon, and everyone else was too "close-minded" to see his true form, causing 2 to [[FridgeLogic poke massive holes in that argument]].
