* BaseBreaker: Hex, half like her because she's a girl and half hate her... because she's a girl.

* MorePopularReplacement: P-Nutz the stuffed monkey was originally featured as a sidekick host, but he was [[TheScrappy reviled by fans]] which eventually led to the character [[TakeThatScrappy being killed]]. A few years down the track, another non-human sidekick, a robot named D.A.R.R.E.N., showed up on the spin-off sister show ''Good Game: Spawn Point'' who became very popular, especially among kids for how funny he was and the amazing chemistry he had with the human hosts.



* TakeThatScrappy: P_nutz is a yellow monkey puppet who co-hosted season one and was hated by the fans. Season five onwards has had him make humorous cameos that make fun of him.

** Bajo gave ''Singstar: Music/TakeThat'' a 4 just because the game worked. Nobody seemed to mind probably because there aren't many hardcore Take That fans in their primary demographic. Besides, it was a ''[[CashCowFranchise Singstar]]'' game.

Added DiffLines:

** Pocket has 'JOLENE!'.


** Especially prevalent in the Ask Spawn Point segment. Things that start of as little jokes added by the viewers in their letters get picked up by other viewers. Eventually, the hosts start to pick up on them and[[RunningGag continuously reference them]] thus reinforcing the meme. The most notable example is when viewers add emojis to the ends of their letters for Hex and Bajo to vocalize.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Episode 41, 2009. ''Dragon Age: Origins'' review:
---> '''Bajo:''' Hex, I wish I had this much time to answer people's questions in real life.
---> ''(cut to office scene. Glasses-Hex approaches Bajo)''
---> '''Hex:''' Hey man, do you want a coffee?
---> ''(several options appear. 1.'Yes please, I would like a huge coffee, as huge as the sun'. 2. 'Coffee is for losers, enough talk! Prepare to fight!' 3. 'I didn't know you wore glasses...' 4. 'Is that rain?'. Choice hovers over no.3, then goes to 2. Bajo then pulls out a giant axe. Cue screaming Hex.)''

---> '''Episode 41, 2009. ''Assassins Creed 2'' review:'''
---> '''Hex:''' There was a mission where I had to go up and 'collect ribbons from ladies', but instead of picking their pockets I'd press the wrong button and knife a few chicks in the face. ''(shows clip)'' Oops.

---> '''Episode 6, 2009. "Dead Rising: Chop till You Drop review:'''
---> '''Junglist:''' They also took out that '''stupid''' photo-taking system.
---> ''(Zombie Bajo groans)''
--->'''Junglist:''' "Now I know you liked the photo taking but your opinion doesn't count because you're undead." See ZombieInfectee for more infomation.

** Virtually anytime the show uses green screen. A notable favorite would be from the BatmanArkhamAsylum review when Bajo was commenting on how impossibly stealthy [[FanNickname Bats]] was.
--->''(Junglist types away at the computer as Bajo stealthily lowers himself from upside down behind him)''
--->'''Junglist''': I know you're there, Bajo.
--->''(Bajo retracts upwards...then back down quickly)''
--->'''Bajo''': I'm Batman.

** What about the Gears of War 2 review? Microsoft wouldn't let them show any in-game footage, so they re-enact it with dolls and action figures. ''HilarityEnsues''.
** The bloopers in the final episode for 2010. Sweet Jesus.
** The DayZ review in which Hex relates her heartbreaking story of being separated from the rest of her team for most of the game, and the emotive reunion when she finally found them.


* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Their crusade against the Australian Classification Board. They also took the mickey out of both the ACB and the Bowdlerised version of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' in a great review as well.
---> '''Hex:''' That's right, we have a cut-down, neutered, oxygen-starved version of the game that's had most of the gore removed because we have no 18+ rating for games in this country and are apparently unable to make judgement calls of our own.
---> '''Bajo:''' Yes, even though we [[ModernWarfare slaughtered civilians as an airport terrorist]]; [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed stabbed people in the head, throat, spine and liver]]; [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto chain-sawed peaceful protestors]]; [[MadWorld gored, impaled, blinded and thrown punks into jet engines]] and deliberately mowed down innocent pedestrians, but when it comes to zombies, [[BerserkButton Oh no, we can't have a zombie corpse on the ground or show a zombies head exploding, that's just too real!]]
