1[[quoteright:350:]]²[[caption-width-right:350:"I only upload high quality video game rips."]]²²''[=SilvaGunner=]'' was a Website/YouTube channel started in 2006 that uploaded video game music... until it was removed for copyright violations in October 2010. Then, fellow music uploader [=TimmyTurnersDad=] created [[ GilvaSunner]] as a tribute, though since 2015 copyright concerns have led to very few uploads.[[note]]Instead of uploading direct soundtracks, he usually uploads remixes/arrangements of video game music, most commonly from the Japanese remix community [[ SBFR]]. As an exception, he ''did'' upload ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot''[='=]s soundtrack, [[YouCantFightFate but had to remove it later due to copyright]].[[/note]] [[WellThisIsNotThatTrope This page isn't about either channel]] ([[SelfDemonstratingArticle but you probably saw that bait-and-switch coming]]).²²'''[=GiIvaSunner=]'''[[note]](pronounced "gee-vuh-sun-nr"; note that the third letter is actually an uppercase "i" and not a lowercase "L")[[/note]] was a channel created by Chaze the Chat on January 2016. Inspired by channels that posed as Creator/LittleKuriboh during the height of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''[='s=] popularity, [=GiIvaSunner=] mimics the name, description, avatar, and header used by the real [=GilvaSunner=]. In typical uploads, an unsuspecting viewer might expect to hear the song promised in the title... and they ''would'', but [[BaitAndSwitch the song would be modified in some way]], usually involving one of the channel's ''many'' RunningGags (such as [[InTheStyleOf replacing the song's melody]] with the [[ThemeTune theme]] for ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''[[note]]which is in reference to the 55 minute mark of [[ this]] WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} livestream[[/note]]).²²Then, four months into [=GiIvaSunner=]'s run, history repeated itself and the entire channel was removed from [=YouTube=]. The team continued ripping on a new channel, rebranding it as '''[[MythologyGag SiIvaGunner]]'''[[note]](pronounced "see-vuh-gun-nr"; the "l" is still an uppercase "i")[[/note]]. However, uploads on the new channel tended to [[GrowingTheBeard favor good remixes over simple memes]], and along with that the {{Kayfabe}} of posing as [=GilvaSunner=] morphed into an actual narrative.²²The [=SiIvaGunner=] channel continued uploading videos regularly until September 30th, 2016 when it was announced that the channel would be ending. However, [=SiIvaGunner=] would see a special return for Halloween and Christmas that year. The Christmas special in particular featured an episodic series, but the seventh episode fell into DevelopmentHell for months, which led to the channel being UnCanceled. [=SiIvaGunner=] has continued uploading regularly ever since and is currently active.²²In accordance with the above, Chaze the Chat decided to sort the channel into four seasons:²* Season 1 covers 2016 up until the Halloween special return.²* Season 2 covers the remainder of 2016 and all of 2017.²* Season 3 covers 2018 and a bit of 2019.²* Season 4 covers the remainder of 2019.²²[[Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotRecent Please note that many examples on this page and in the sub-pages haven't been updated and still refer to the end of Season 1 as the end of the channel.]]²²The channel's Website/{{Twitter}} can be found [[ here]], and its Bandcamp [[ here]].²²See also {{AwesomeMusic/Mashups}}, {{Funny.Mashups}}, Music/TimmyTurnersGrandDad, and Music/VvvvvaVvvvvvr; compare WebVideo/HowToBasic.²²[[foldercontrol]]²[[folder:More in-depth timeline with links]]²* Season 1:²** On January 9th, 2016, the first rip was uploaded, "[[ Wild Pok&eacute;mon Battle - Pok&eacute;mon Ruby & Sapphire]]".²** In April 2016, the [=GiIvaSunner=] channel was taken down and the [=SiIvaGunner=] channel was created.²** On June 17th, the channel started its first storyline, ''[[ SiIvaGunner: Rebooted]]''. This saw many changes to the channel's status quo and introduced The Voice Inside Your Head as a villain. The channel returned to normal on July 7th.²** On September 30th, Chaze the Chat broke character [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness for the first time]] to [[ announce]] the channel's ending.²** Season 1 ended on October 29th, 2016 with the [[SeriesFinale finale]] "[[ Title Theme & Ending - 7 GRAND DAD]]".²* Season 2:²** Season 2 began on November 3rd, 2016 with the first rip of the channel's (late) [[HalloweenEpisode Halloween special]], "[[ Wood Man (Beta Mix) - Mega Man 2]]". The Halloween special ended on November 7th.²** The [[ChristmasEpisode Christmas special]] started on December 14th. It featured an [[ episodic series]] and had The Voice taking over the channel. The episodes were released periodically until the seventh, which fell into DevelopmentHell. Chaze [[ announced in April 2017]] that the channel was UnCanceled for the time being, and that everything after the original ending is considered "Season 2" of [=SiIvaGunner=].²** On May 26, 2017, [[VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot Haltmann]] took over the channel, which put the Christmas special on hold. This takeover was the status quo for the rest of Season 2.²** Season 2 ended with "[[ The Final Rip...]]", otherwise known as ''AMUNO Le Film''.²* Season 3:²** Season 3 started with "[[ ...Of 2017]]", which is simply Chaze announcing the end of Season 2. Allegedly, this season returned control of the channel to [=SiIvaGunner=], although he was NotQuiteBackToNormal.²** On AprilFoolsDay, "[=SiIvaGunner=]" was revealed to be a fake. Following a takeover from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, the channel returned to normal again (whether [=SiIvaGunner=] is still fake has yet to be seen). However, future album announcements indicate that Haltmann is still controlling the channel behind-the-scenes.²** On July 17th, the ''King for a Day Tournament'' was held, in which viewers voted from sixteen characters to determine what rips they would like to see for a day. ''King for a Day'' rips were uploaded until September 9th, when regular uploads resumed. The winner's takeover was held on October 9th.²* Season 4:²** January 4: Channel taken down entirely due to copyright claims. Second channel created and notable rips uploaded. Season 4 plans halted until situation resolved.²** January 9: More notable rips were reuploaded to [[ second channel]].[[note]]Based on one of the real [=SilvaGunner=]'s alternate accounts: [[ SilvaGunner2]][[/note]] They got their strikes removed on February 28th, 2019, and are currently back in business. ²** February 28: The original channel was reinstated.²[[/folder]]²[[folder:Albums]]²[[AC:[[GreatestHitsAlbum GiIvaSunner's Highest Quality Video Game Rips]]]]²* [[ Volume 1]] (March 30th, 2016)²* [[ Volume 2]]; an AprilFoolsDay joke album that contains 200+ copies of "Grand Metropolis" from ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' (alongside several different pictures).

(October 8, 2018)²[[/folder]]²----²!!I only add high quality trope examples:²²[[folder:#-G]]²* TenMinuteRetirement:²** After what seemed like a GrandFinale on May 31st, [=SiIva=] returned with [[ a new announcement]] on June [[ArcNumber 7th]], [[RunningGag 7 days later]].²** A slightly more literal example came when Siiva uploaded what seemed to be a [[ genuine goodbye message]], stating that the channel was fun while it lasted but that it's time to move on. In addition, all characters were removed from the channel banner, and the channel description was replaced with a single sentence that said "So long, grand cowboy." But one hour later, [[ a new rip was uploaded]], and all the changes to the channel had been reverted. Rips continued like normal afterwards and the Goodbye video was never mentioned again.²** The September 2016 retirement, which seemed more final than the previous ones, also turned out to be, at least in part, a ruse, as new uploads began a few days after the apparent finale.²* ADayInTheLimelight:²** September 13th rips were mostly dedicated to the original ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' game and its 31st anniversary.²** Double Subverted during September 15th (''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s anniversary). The channel was filled with ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' rips throughout the day instead... until the last hours or so when nearly 40 Undertale-related rips were uploaded.²** November 11th was a day full of rips from the ''WebAnimation/{{TOME}}'' series, covering both the web animation and the upcoming game.²* AWildRapperAppears: DMX appears in the middle of [[ this rip]] before leaving shortly after.²* AbortedArc:²** The storyline about Mr. Rental's crusade against mashups began with the [[ Options]] rip, and escalated from there, until rips on the topic abruptly stopped. This is because the creator of the arc stopped feeling like continuing, [[NoEnding and just left it unfinished.]]²** During the reboot saga, the Voice Inside Your Head revealed in a ''Pok&eacute;mon'' ROM Hack that he engineered the reboot to protect the channel from a greater evil. This plot point was never built upon, and the channel formally ended outside of occasional events before it could be continued. [[spoiler:When the Voice eventually returned, his motive of protecting the channel has seemingly disappeared in favor of him being anti-Snow Halation and other "weeb shit" just like much of the fandom was.]]²** The ''Christmas Comeback Crisis'' was aborted for Season 3.²* AlternateRealityGame: [[ An ARG]] began on [[MeaningfulReleaseDate Father's Day]], which was shortly after the reboot. [[spoiler:It led to an audio file that revealed that more about the reboot. An extended version of the audio file was later [[ uploaded on youtube]].]]²* AlternateUniverse: The High Quality Reboot is a CosmicRetcon by The Voice Inside Your Head to exchange the original [=SiivaGunner=] RunningGags for others, thus creating an alternate universe. [[spoiler:As The Voice Inside Your Head is effectively a god, he can create more alternate universes as he wishes. He tells Chad Warden about several other possible alternate universes, each containing their own set of RunningGags.]]²** On June 17th 2017, a video is uploaded with an alternate version of the reboot's true ending called [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Genocide ending]]. In it, [[spoiler: Chad kills Snow Halation, the Voice and later ''[[HeroKiller SiIva himself]]'', revealing this was his plan all along and taking over the channel]]. The following day is flooded with rips that mostly include Lego Pornstar's ''Abe's Dead'' (a.k.a. the 'Chicken and Chips' song), suggested to be [[spoiler: the work of this universe's Chad]]. A day later, a video called '...' is posted, where [[spoiler: Wood Man appears and reveals this is just an example of a timeline where Chad is more like his real life self than the idealized version from the reboot. Wood Man then admits he just did this for fun before bringing the viewers back to the main timeline]].²* AluminumChristmasTrees: Given that rips of fake video games (i.e. ''FanFic/WaluigisTacoStand'', ''Shadow And The Ice Queen'') have appeared on the channel, it's easy to pass of games with similarly ridiculous titles like ''VideoGame/PapersPlease'' or ''[[VideoGame/SuperLesbianAnimalRPG Super Lesbian Horse RPG]]'' as more of the same, despite them actually existing as games.²* AnonymousBand: This is done to maintain Kayfabe. However, it's {{Averted}} in some places:²** The featured channels list contains several contributors' channels.²** All of the albums credit the creators appropriately, except in a few cases where placeholders such as "Barney Rubble" or other joke names are used. The albums also reveal the proper "names" for each rip.²** Many contributors have playlists collecting all of their rips, which is in turn used by the [=SiIvaGunner=] Wiki to place the proper credit on most rips.²* AntiFrustrationFeatures: The (unofficial) [=SiIvaGunner=] Wiki [[DontExplainTheJoke explains the joke]] for each listed rip, which is especially helpful for rips with more esoteric {{punchline}}s.²* AntiHumor: Rips with large portions of the song left intact fit this trope, most notably [[ "Dancing Mad (Beta Mix) - Final Fantasy VI"]], which goes for well over 11 minutes before [[spoiler:The Flintstones' theme is heard]].²* AprilFoolsDay:²** The second volume of his highest quality rips... which contained 245 copies of [[VideoGame/SonicHeroes Grand Metropolis]] in .flac[[note]]later reuploaded in .mp3 on [=SiivaGunner=]'s channel[[/note]], with 245 copies of the same image of Creator/KevinSpacey, and a few other images (including an entire folder of [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] pictures) thrown in for good measure.²** [=SiIva=] also uploaded the entire soundtrack of ''The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy'' unedited, followed by three unedited songs that resembled The Flintstones' theme. [[UpToEleven Then he uploaded Grand Metropolis again.]]²** The ''real'' [=GilvaSunner=] uploaded [[ Final Destination]].²** In 2017, the channel and the real [=GilvaSunner=] swapped upload schedules (though their content still remained the same).²** In 2018, the channel started a second Inspector Gadget takeover, now with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.²* ArcNumber: 7, referencing the bootleg Mario/Flintstones game "7 GRAND DAD".²** On most of Siiva's albums, the number of songs is a multiple of 7. Depending on the album, this count either includes or excludes songs that are only available through downloading the album.²** The seventh rip of "Grand Metropolis" was the only one edited. ²** To celebrate reaching 7,000 subscribers, Siiva uploaded [[ an edited version]] of [[ a video]] that the real [=GilvaSunner=] had uploaded to celebrate reaching 150,000 subscribers.²** [[ Level 1 (Desert Bus)]]'' and ''[[ Beloved Tomboyish Girl (Extended Mix)]]'' are both several hours long, and they both feature the WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones theme song at the seven hour mark. [[ Overworld]] from VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening only runs for nearly eleven minutes, but it features the Flintstones theme song at the seven minute mark.²*** [[ The rip of "Pause Screen"]] from VideoGame/WarioWorld (Which was uploaded during the reboot) features the Flintstones theme song at the 7 minute mark, but it quickly begins switching between the theme songs for The Flintstones, The Simpsons, and Family Guy, before moving on to other songs.²*** [[ The rip]] of "Kakariko Village (Night)" instead features "I Play Pokemon Go Every Day" at the 7 hour mark.²** After releasing his third album, [=SiIva=] took a seven day break and returned on June 7th.²** In [[ this video]], Siiva goes to buy new ripping software after the program that he had been using up until that point stops working. What was the name of the old ripping software? "[=HQripper=] 7.0"²** The number seven played a large role in the [[ Fathers Day ARG.]]²** The reboot was supposed to end on July 7th (7/7), but the video ending the reboot was immediately taken down, presumably due to issues regarding the video's flashing lights. The reupload had an additional line from The Voice indicating that epileptic viewers might want to look away from the screen.²** Including the "Behind the Scenes" Mr. Rental video and the BaitAndSwitch final track, there were a total of 7 videos uploaded after the announcement of the channel's ending.²** There are a total of seven {{Greatest Hits Album}}s (one of which is in two parts), though two of them (2 and 5) were jokes.²* AscendedExtra: ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack'' was only used in around one or two rips during the reboot, but after the reboot ended, the amount of rips using it raised significantly.²* BackstoryHorror: Siiva himself is completely harmless guy that just wants to create high quality rips, right? Well, no. According to [[ this piece of lore]], [=SiivaGunner=] is a HumanoidAbomination from space that once killed a completely innocent person just to steal his computer²* BaitAndSwitch: Every single "high quality rip" is actually this, unless it's a DoubleSubversion. Website/YouTube frowns on this behavior, which likely played a role in the original channel's termination.²** The surprise factor was lessened slightly with the new channel; its name is different, its avatar now bears [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain an eyepatch]], and the channel description makes it more clear that the songs uploaded are derivative works rather than the original songs.²** The [[ Main Theme (Anniversary Edition) - Wii Shop Channel]] rip does this ''three times over''. For the first 53 seconds, the percussion solo from the intro loops, making the listener think it's a blue balls upload. [[spoiler:Then the beat from [[Music/{{Drake}} "Hotline Bling"]] kicks in, making you think that he'll just do a joke that [[ItsBeenDone has been done before]]. And ''then'' -- since the [=SiIvaGunner=] tean can't actually use the real song without getting the video blocked for content -- it turns out to be the Music/KidzBop version of "Hotline Bling".]]²** When [=SiIva=] uploaded three certain stage themes from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', the rips themselves were unedited. However, these three themes are for the characters whose names were famously switched around during localization, and rather than present them under their Japanese[[note]]Boxer = M. Bison, Claw = Balrog, Dictator = Vega[[/note]] or International[[note]]Boxer = Balrog, Claw = Vega, Dictator = M. Bison[[/note]] names, [=SiIva=] [[TakeAThirdOption assigned Boxer's theme to Vega, Claw's theme to M. Bison, and Dictator's theme to Balrog]].²** The [[ Intro]] rip for ''[[VideoGame/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus Monty Python's Flying Circus: The Computer Game]]'' is actually the It's Man opening from the first episode of [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus the show itself]], except instead of segueing into the show's title sequence, it cuts to the very end of ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack''[='=]s title sequence instead (this, in conjuction with the nature of Monty Python's It's Man openings, refers to ''The Nutshack'' theme song's repeated exclamation of "IT'S THE NUTSHACK!"), followed by the Monty Python foot crushing the logo for the cartoon.²** The [[ rip]] of [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Holy Orders]] is actually Holy Orders?, the distorted version played when fighting Robo-Ky.²** [[ Robo's Theme]] - VideoGame/ChronoTrigger plays about two seconds of [[JustForFun/{{Rickroll}} the obvious joke]] before spectacularly steering off-course. The [[ OST Version]] sounds like it's about to do the same, only to play a completely different Music/RickAstley song (specifically "Together Forever").²** [[ Snowdin Town (Hard Mode)]] - VideoGame/{{Undertale}} plays like the original rip, complete with subtle Snow Halation... [[spoiler:and then "F**k Da Police" by the N.W.A. plays, and then 10 seconds later, Snow Halation's vocals play anyway.]]²** [[ Flash Man Stage (Alternative Mix)]] opens on a [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} Death By Glamour]] remix, until a certain guest crashes in and replaces the song with [[VideoGame/MarioKartDS Waluigi Pinball]].²** At the end of the ''[=SiIvaGunner=]: King for a Day Tournament'' event, a video titled "[[ ONE FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT...]]" was uploaded on September 9th, 2018. Usually, any [=SiIvaGunner=] video with the word "announcement" in it is an indication that a new album had been released on [=SiIvaGunner=]'s Bandcamp page. However, about seventeen seconds into the video, "John Notwoodman" appears to explain that the final videos of the tournament had to be delayed and that regular rips would resume shortly. The "[[ STRINGS OF FATE]]" album wouldn't see release until October 8th, at which point [[ a more traditional announcement video was published]].²*** On the subject of ''King for a Day Tournament'', during the period when the members of the roster were being announced, the sixteenth and final contender was [[ seemingly teased]] to be Monika from ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub''... but the following day, [[ the teaser changed]] to one for the ''real'' final character, WebVideo/{{Etika|WNetwork}}.²** There were three fake reveals in King For Another Day:²*** [=SpawnWave=] in [[ this rip recapping the April SiIvaDirect]], which is a bit obvious since the moments leading up to it wasn’t framed as a trailer.²*** {{VideoGame/Undertale}}'s Sans in the [[ Boss Battle Fusion Collab]], which was also a CallBack to Sans declining his invitation in [[ Papyrus's reveal trailer]].²*** But WesternAnimation/MrBean in [[ Troupple King’s Secret Song (Unused Version) - Shovel Knight]] is the biggest one of all, since for a whole day until the direct, people were led to believe that he was going to compete, up until he was finally deconfirmed near the end, in which his spot was replaced by [[Franchise/AceAttorney Law and]] [[Franchise/DanganRonpa Disorder]].²* BigBad: The reboot storyline had The Voice Inside Your Head serve this role.²* BilingualBonus: The name of the album that's themed around Yoko Shimomura's compositions is "il settimo grande padre", literally meaning "The Seventh Grand Father" (AKA 7 Grand Dad) in Italian. Also from the same album is a remix of "Scherzo di Notte" ("Night Joke" in Italian) from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' that uses the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' theme song, titled "Scherzo di Momenti Divertenti" ("[[MemeticMutation Funny Moments]] Joke").²* BittersweetEnding: The reboot arc [[ ends with]] [[spoiler:Chad accepting the Voice's offer to merge the universes without Snow Halation.]]²** In the [[ true ending]], [[spoiler: Chad manages to bring Snow Halation back and defeat the voice... [[HeroicSacrifice at the cost of his own life.]] And as part of the ARG revealed, the [[GreaterScopeVillain real cause of the reboot]] is still out there.]] ²* BookEnds:²** The last rip[[note]]Not counting the additional four "rips" planned post-end[[/note]] is [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire "Battle! (Wild Pok&eacute;mon)"]], the rip that started the channel.²** One of the first rips to get popular was the rip of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''[='=]s "Slider", which was a simple bait-and-switch into the ''Flintstones'' theme; it became one of the most re-ripped songs as a result. On the last day of continuous rips, the [[ N64DD version]] was uploaded as one of the last ones, and started the same way (albeit with Joel's infamous Grand Dad freakout overlayed onto it)... only for it to stop partway through to let [[ContinuityCavalcade just about every other running gag do their own rendition of it]].²** After wrapping up the channel for good [[spoiler:(as it seemed at the time)]], [=SiIvaGunner's=] profile picture changed to [=GilvaSunner's=] original picture of Timmy Turner's dad.²* [[BreakoutCharacter Breakout]] [[MemeticMutation Meme]]: WesternAnimation/TheNutshack and [[Series/LazyTown We Are Number One]].²** The Nutshack, while originally introduced as an [[StylisticSuck intentionally bad]] running gag to be the "villain" of the Reboot ARG, proved popular enough both on and beyond the channel (mostly via "The Nutshack but..." videos) to be kept on as a regular meme on the channel, even being raised to one of the "holy trinity" alongside Grand Dad and Snow Halation.²** We Are Number One, meanwhile, was a [[BatmanGambit deliberate]] [[invoked]][[IntendedAudienceReaction attempt]] to create a running gag that would be popular amongst fans after the disastrous [[TheScrappy Green de la Bean]] gag. It worked far better than expected: the song became incredibly popular even outside the channel, with "We Are Number One but..." videos rapidly eclipsing their "The Nutshack but..." inspirations in popularity, enough so that when the [=GoFundMe=] for Stef&aacute;n Karl Stef&aacute;nsson's[[note]]Robbie Rotten's actor, who sung We Are Number One[[/note]] cancer treatment came to light, it was fully funded in a matter of hours. This earned mainstream media attention, and a thank you message from Stef&aacute;n in which he - and the actors for the Rottens - sung "We Are Number One" live on stream; in addition, the audio keys for the song were released separately [[ApprovalOfGod so that it would be easier for fans to "keep memeing"]]. Despite all of that, We Are Number One, at the time, was only a minor meme, until the Christmas Comeback Crisis, when the usage of it skyrocketed, much like The Nutshack before it.²* BrownNote: The bean robots in the ''Christmas Comeback Crisis'' are equipped with speakers that [[SensoryAbuse blast the "Green de la Bean" song at people to disable them.]]²* TheBusCameBack: ²** The [[ Vocal Mix]] of ''Wolf girl with you''[='=]s Title Theme features the first true appearance of Loud Nigra since the reboot.²** [[spoiler:Despite Snow Halation being erased during the merging of the universes in the [[ Normal Ending]] of the reboot, in the [[ True Ending]], it makes its return.]]²* BusCrash: After several weeks of absence, Mr. Rental eventually made a return in [[ Slider - Super Mario 64DD]], where he is presumably killed during a standoff with the police.²* ButtMonkey: ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure''-related rips are often StylisticSuck (most obvious with the [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency Bloody Stream]] rips); this got increasingly prevalent as the channel went on, culminating with an entire album full of StylisticSuck rips as a [[TakeThatAudience jab]] at the people who wanted them. Notably, ''[=JoJo=]'' songs that are remixed but are under a different series' title (usually with ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games) have been known to be consistently good. Songs that are actually under the series' name (such as from ''VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureEyesOfHeaven''), however, are usually bad on purpose.²* CallBack: ²** [[ Final Boss (Phase 2)]] from ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' incorporates his previous rip of [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} sans.]] as it fades out.²** After the reboot, a few of his older, more famous ''Flintstones'' remixes (i.e. ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'''s battle theme, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Kokiri Forest]], and [[VideoGame/{{Splatoon}} the Splatfest theme]]) got paralleling ''Simpsons'' remixes.²*** [[ The "Remastered" version]] of "donacdum" from ''VideoGame/{{Payday2}}'' is actually a reboot version of [[ the original video]] ([[ NBGMusic's "donacdad"]]), with Joel's voice samples replaced with [[ AlWikowonkavitz]] doing a Joel impression.²** The rip of [[ Bowser's Theme]] from ''VideoGame/{{Super Mario 64}}'' is one of the few pre-reboot rips to feature the ThemeTune for ''VideoGame/TheSimpsons'' (one of the main {{Running Gag}}s of the reboot). During the reboot, the [[ Beta Mix]] of the same song was released, now featuring the theme tune for ''The Flintstones'' instead.²** The High Quality Reboot began with [[ Snow halation]], which features Windows crashing and rebooting, cutting off right before the welcome screen. One of the videos that marked the fake end of the reboot is [[ Start-Up Opening]], which incorporates the Windows 98 startup sound.²** Before the reboot, a rip of the [[ 3DS Mii Maker theme]] is actually an amature video of someone trying to make a Peter Griffin Mii, only to end up creating a Fred Flintstone one. Towards the end of the reboot, [[ a similar Mii Channel rip]] was made that flips the premise.²** The [[ Nintendo Direct 9.1.2016]] video is one to the [[ Sony E3 Conference 2016]] video, in that they both feature remixed clips of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' where Will freaks out over his missing video games, and they both end with InMemoriam[[invoked]] segments (the original video for the lack of UsefulNotes/PlaystationVita announcements, the later video for UsefulNotes/WiiU losing its exclusivity to UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS).²** ''Stagg Street Arrangements'' includes a bonus cover of "Everyday Goodbyes" by "Bob Dylan", referencing the earlier album dedicated to him.²** [[ This rip of Dogbass]] from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' contains the melody of Dogbass merged into the ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' theme as well as some other sound effects and parts of songs from the game like the Temmie Village chirps and music. It got quite popular for [=SiIvaGunner=] standards, with over 100,000 views. This rip was referenced in [[ Main Theme (Short Version) - Deluxe Seinfeld Scene It? The DVD Game]], where the concept was practically reversed.²* CanonDiscontinuity: There's no acknowledgement on the channel that the original Bean rips or the 9/11 rips, as well as the events surrounding them, ever happened (Though the rips were reuploaded to Flustered Fernando). The fans also like to prefer to act like [[FanonDiscontinuity those rips/events never happened]], either.²** Actually, [[ this video]] includes them in the lore, including the removal of the 9/11 rips.²* CerebusSyndrome: The ContinuityReboot led to several darker, SensoryAbuse-laden rips - as well as the development of an actual story [[spoiler:that ultimately ends with the reveal of [[GreaterScopeVillain an unseen higher power]], the merging of two universes, and the seeming death of Chad Warren and the Voice Inside Your Head]].²* {{Cliffhanger}}: [[ The OST version rip]] of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain "Sins of the Father]]" was uploaded on the day the parallel universe storyline was supposed to officially come to an end. The last seven seconds of the rip has the video glitching out and cutting to black, with the last thing heard being a familiar voice saying [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} "Let's check it out."]]²* ClosingCredits: [[ "Curtain Call"]] from ''VideoGame/MOTHER3'' acts as this for the entire channel, crediting every single contributor by name.²* CoconutMeetsCranium: [[ CG! Coconut gun!]]²* CompressedAdaptation: [[ The album release]] of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''[='=]s "Cave Dungeon (Extended Mix)" retains the [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Jellyfish Jam]] ending, but the [[ twelve]] [[ hour]] [[OverlyLongGag buildup]] was replaced with the song's original intro.²* ContinuityReboot: ²** It began on June 17th, 2016, when [[ this]] "Snow halation" video featured the channel "crashing" ala UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows. Immediately after, many changes became apparent.²*** The channel icon changed to an odd, anaglyphic version of the normal one. ²*** The channel's banner became bereft of Grand Dad and company ([[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]], [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]], and [[VideoGame/TheIdolMaster Haruka Amami]] eventually took their place).²*** His Twitter name had "*reboot*" appended to it.²*** "Please read the channel description" and "I only upload high quality video game rips" became "Read the channel description, please" and "I upload high quality video game rips only".²*** The main RunningGag of the channel went from being ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.²** The reboot ended on July 8th, 2016, when the Voice Inside Your Head's MergedReality proposal [[spoiler:is accepted by Chad Warden, and all the aforementioned changes have reverted to what they were before]], with the exception of the channel icon (which became an unaltered photo of the statue of Antinous, the source of the real [=GilvaSunner=]'s icon) and banner (in which Homer, Peter, and Haruka were gone and Grand Dad was back in the lighthouse, but Nozomi and Loud Nigra were still absent). [[spoiler:24 hours later, Chad brings back Snow Halation himself, and all of the changes are completely reverted, for good (though it took nearly two weeks for Homer, Peter, and Haruka to be added back into the lighthouse to reflect the new status quo).]]²* CulturalCrossReference: The channel frequently throws jokes in some rips that only foreigners may understand, especially Brazilian ones. [[MeaningfulReleaseDate In the day September 7th]] the channel ran twice in 2016 and 2017 a specific example of this trope in a couple of rips to celebrate the Independence Day in the country.²* DarkerAndEdgier: Rips on the [[ Flustered Fernando]] side-channel lean heavily in this direction, as the entire point of the channel was to upload/re-upload rips that couldn't be left on the main channel for fear of alienating viewers and being flagged. These include all of the bean rips, all of the 9/11 rips, a series of rips "celebrating" the 10-year anniversary of the Michael Richards Laugh Factory incident, the infamous Pupa scene, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking an unaltered, HD version of the I Love Egg song]].²* DeaderThanDead: In the King for a Day tournament, Ajit Pai is treated as this after losing to ComicBook/{{Thanos}}, who inflicted CessationOfExistence on Pai's stock icon in his victory screen. Pai doesn't even show up for the final character shot.²* DependingOnTheWriter: Is [=SiIvaGunner=]'s name supposed to be spelled with an actual "L" or a second "I" (either subtly or blatantly)? The Mr. Rental Looney Tunes rips feature both spellings.²* DoubleSubversion:²** The ''Demo'', ''Alpha Mix'', ''Original Mix'', ''Alternate Mix'', ''Unused'', and ''Unused Demo'' versions of [[VideoGame/SonicHeroes Grand Metropolis]] are this. The AprilFoolsDay videos were originally this too, but were renamed to BaitAndSwitch titles indicating them as [[BlatantLies "APRIL FOOL'S REMIXES"]] the day after.²** [[ K.K. Cruisin']] from the Gurando no Mori album is just a genuine jazz cover of the original song, with no twists.²** [[ Super Mario Odyssey]] was also a genuine jazz cover with no twists.²*** [[ Play a Mini-Game!]] is also just a jazz cover with no other twists.²* TheDragon: [[spoiler: Woodman]] works for the voice, and [[spoiler:keeping the Voice alive is why he hijacked the channel.]]²* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:²** The earliest videos had the image change into a more fitting one when the ruse was revealed (i.e. showing Grand Dad when the ''Flintstones'' theme kicked in, which can be seen [[ here]]). [=SiivaGunner=] has re-uploaded some of them, but they now have a constant image throughout.²** The ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' rip of [[ "The Evil King Bowser"]] features [=SiIvaGunner=] speaking, but his voice was provided by Microsoft Sam, rather than [=VoiceForge=]'s Wiseguy.²* EasterEgg:²** Certain rips begin to incorporate another song as they fade out. [[ This one]], for example, incorporates a bit of "Megalovania" mere seconds before the video ends.²** Other videos have abnormal descriptions. For example, [=25M=] from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' changes "Please read the channel description" into "HOW MUCH OF THE CHANNEL DESCRIPTION CAN YOU READ?", and [[ SUPERHOT]] has the description almost entirely full of the word "{{VideoGame/SUPERHOT}}".²** The description of each [[Franchise/LoveLive "Snow Halation"]] upload contains a quote from a member of &#956;'s.²* TheEndingChangesEverything: [[ Behind the Scenes - Mr Rental: The Video Game]] reveals that [[spoiler:the Mr. Rental seen in the main Mr. Rental rips was actually an EvilTwin, [[ Mr. Own]], while the Mr. Rental seen in the ''Looney Tunes'' title theme rips was the real one, who was GoodAllAlong]].²* EndOfSeriesAwareness: [[ "Staff Credits"]] from ''[[VideoGame/SuperMonkeyBall Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz]]'' (posted the day before the channel's end) says "Finally, the time has come, it's the last r-r-rip with a Coconut Gun."²* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: [[ "All at Once"]] is apparently [[SensoryAbuse every single rip and/or meme from [=SiIva=]'s channel up to that point]].²* ExactWords: Some uploads will give you what the song's title describes.²** For starters, "[[ We Love Burning Town]]" from ''[[VideoGame/{{Shantae}} Shantae and the Pirate's Curse]]'' features [[CrossesTheLineTwice a burning town.]]²** VideoGame/{{Undertale}} has ''[[ Dating Fight!]]'' which features a {{Sexophone}}/Megalovania mashup playing over what sounds like Sans and Toriel having sex, and ''[[ Battle Against a True Hero]]'' which features a VideoGame/{{Roblox}} fight.²** The "high quality rip" of the song "End of the World", from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', indeed features a song [[NamesTheSame of the same name]]. However, [[ the song in the video]] is actually the finale version of the second opening theme of the 2014 anime adaptation of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders''.²** ''[[ Silence]]'' from ''VideoGame/FZero''. [[spoiler:Until the end, that is.]]²** [[ This rip]] of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Against the Black Knight]] is [[spoiler: actually a rip of the battle theme of [[VideoGame/ShovelKnight another Black Knight]]. The inverse is done in [[ this rip]] of The Defender (Black Knight Battle)]]. ²** [[ High Drop]] from ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}}'' 2 is actually a skit where one of the soldiers does drop from a great height.²** [[ Launch Base Zone (Act 1)]] from ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' is really a Genesis remix of the ''Sonic & Knuckles Collection'' version's theme.²** [[ Three Minutes Clapping]] from ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' is literally that. ²** The [[ "Original Mix"]] of It's Showtime from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is quite literally the song Showtime from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. (Fitting enough since its developer, Music/{{Toby Fox}}, created numerous songs for the webcomic.)²** [[ Dream Land]] from [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Lotus Land Story]] is a remix of [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Gourmet Race]], or in other words, Dream Land from [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. 64]].²** [[ Gallery]] from ''VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureEyesOfHeaven'' features a literal gallery... [[spoiler: ...Of WebVideo/AngryJoe pictures, set to a remix of Roundabout.]]²** [[ Metal Scratchin' (Blazy Mix)]] from ''VideoGame/SonicRush'' is literally just the sounds of metal scratching against metal.²** [[ Theme of Friends]] from ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2'' is "I'll Be There For You". In other words, it is indeed the Theme of ''Series/{{Friends}}''.²** Inverted with [[ Silencio]] from OFF, which consists entirely of loud noises.²* EvilOverlooker: On July 21st, 2016, fans have noticed the Website/YouTube channel art was updated to feature a very, very faint image of the head of Tito Dick (one of the stars of the infamous cartoon show ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack'', the theme song of which having risen to prominence in the channels video game rips since the end of the reboot). Since then, Dick's head had become a bit clearer. Throughout the month of August 2016, Tito Dick's opacity would fluctuate randomly ranging from almost invisible, to very visible, until the tower disappeared at the end of the month.²* FadeToBlack: [[spoiler:The merging of the universes ends with a clip of Honoka from the music video for Snow Halation fading away.]]²* FandomNod: Deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoked]] in the lore. The team is ''very'' aware what the fans think of each RunningGag. For example, the reboot was caused by the [=SiIvaGunner=] fandom's [[TheScrappy extreme hate]] towards "[[Franchise/LoveLive Snow halation]]", represented by the channel crashing because of a problem with the file "HALATION.SYS" which was caused by "COMMUNITY_DISCOURSE". During later videos, The Voice Inside Your Head makes nods to the various shenanigans that occurred throughout the reboot videos' comment sections, such as the "[[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Dedede]] Squad". The ''Christmas Comeback Crisis'' videos go even further with this, for example turning Green de la Bean, a meme the fans absolutely hated, into an antagonist.²* FakeOutFadeOut: The [[ "Treasure Chest Open"]] rip from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' employs this.²* FakeOutOpening:²** Some videos start out as being presented as just a still image of the game's title (just like the majority of the rips), only to switch over to an actual video at one (often early) point.²** The [[ "Be Cool, Be Wild, and Be Groovy"]] rip from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' appears to be yet another "Snow halation" mashup, only for Dr. Eggman to [[RunningGagged put an abrupt end to it]]. The real mashup is of "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" by Jet, with interjections from Eggman and Big the Cat. This was later followed up with [[ the 20th Anniversary version]], in which Eggman references the original and allows Snow halation to proceed. [[spoiler:It ends, however, with [[WestrenAnimation/TheNutShack Jack]] dedicating the video to Tito Dick, followed by ''The Nutshack'' theme playing over a panicking Eggman]].²* FictionalVideoGame: Rarely there has been rips of non-existent games including [[ Zeno Blade Chronicle X]], a pirate version of VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX and [[ Half-Zombie in the Steel Stronghold]], which has only one song for it.²* ForcedMeme:²** [[InUniverse According to]] [[ Chad Warden]], ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' theme was one from the beginning, and [[ this]] [[PoorCommunicationKills poorly-made]] description of the meme's origin supports his claim. ²** "Snow Halation." The vast majority of other {{Running Gag}}s originate from places other than the channel, but "Snow Halation" as a meme originates entirely from being prominent contributor Triple-Q's favorite song from ''Franchise/LoveLive'' and pushing it alongside the other prominent running gags.²** The theme song to ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack'', after being featured in the ARG, has been introduced as another forced meme. It has been received relatively better than "Snow Halation", although some still don't like the effort of trying to meme something else.²* {{Foreshadowing}}: ²** The Mii Maker rip (a video of someone searching for a [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]] UsefulNotes/{{Mii}} tutorial, and subsequently making one of [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Fred Flintstone]]) rather eerily parallels the ContinuityReboot.²** There are two main clues concerning TheReveal that [[spoiler:the SerialKiller Mr. Rental from his own rips is a different person than the NiceGuy Mr. Rental from the ''Looney Tunes'' rips]]: [[spoiler:a moment where the former, actually Mr. Own, ''buys'' a phone, and the fact that their car is crudely rendered in MS Paint (sticking out like a sore thumb in the generally angular art style used in the ''Looney Tunes'' rips).]]²** [[ An image included with ''Volume 7'' depicts an upside-down triangle with a small purple circle in the center.]] [[ Wood Man's final farewell on Twitter]] has a portrait of someone with that same triangle for a head in the upper-left. ''The [=SiIvaGunner=] Christmas Comeback Crisis'' reveals that person to be [[spoiler:the physical form of the Voice Inside Your Head]].²** What about the sudden mass liking of MINECRAFT things, only for Inspector Gadget (Minecrap) to take over 7 months later?²* FreezeFrameBonus: The music notes that appear in [[ Music Maker 1]] before being erased are actually the first few notes of ([[RunningGag what else?]]) ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' theme.²* GagCensor:²** In the album art for ''Volume 3 & Knigra'', [=GilvaSunner=]'s avatar is covered by the [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Fred Flintstone]] star and Loud Nigra is covered by the [=GilvaSunner=] Seal of Quality.²** [[ This rip]] of [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure "Skydeck a Go!Go!"]] (a mashup with "Bonfire" by Music/ChildishGambino) censors all of the latter song's obscenities with various ''Sonic'' sound effects.²** [[ The rip]] of [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} "Beloved Tomboyish Girl"]] features the infamous "Russian Dongcopter" video and uses [[WesternAnimation/TheNutshack Tito]] [[VisualPun Dick]]'s head as a censor.²* GoneHorriblyWrong: The [=SiIva=] Direct stream for July 11th, 2016. [=SiIvaGunner=] hypes up a brand new high quality rip, only for it to end up being delayed. He then tries to make up for it by playing footage of a live concert performance of "Snow Halation", but this causes the entire stream to be blocked by Lantis, the record label of the ''Love Live'' franchise.²%%Please don't add anything related to "Ending - Sonic Lost World" until there's proof that it's not a Series Fauxnale.²* GrandfatherClause: Grand Dad is a [[{{Pun}} literal]] example; although the theme appears on nearly every other rip, it's been met with very little resistance by both viewers and the team, due to it appearing in [=SiIvaGunner=]'s debut video and thus considered a major part of the channel's identity. Even the ContinuityReboot brought it back towards the end.²* GrandFinale: ²** [[ A Grand New Era ~Ending~]] is this to the entire reboot storyline. However, after completing an additional ARG, the fans achieved the [[GoldenEnding True Ending]] [[ of the reboot]], where instead of resigning to Snow Halation's fate, Chad fights back against the Voice Inside Your Head, stating that [=SiIvaGunner=] does not make rips for the fans, but [[ThePowerOfLove rather out of love.]] Using this love and the MF Like Button, Chad [[spoiler:vanquishes the The Voice Inside Your Head and saves Snow Halation]].²** On October 1st, 2016, '[[ the nutshack theme but the first nutshack is replaced with me ending the channel]]' was uploaded. The man shown in the video is Chaze the Chat, [=SiIva=] himself, announcing the end of uploads on the channel. He also stated there are two more rips to be uploaded (will be noted when uploaded).²*** The collection of Ending and Credits rips leading up October 1st also count, most notably [[ File Select Fusion]], which featured a collaboration with Joel, and [[ Battle! (Wild Pok&eacute;mon) (High Quality) - Pok&eacute;mon Ruby & Sapphire)]], a version of the original channel's first rip updated to include the channel's more recent memes.²** [[ Title Theme & Ending - 7 GRAND DAD]].²* GroundhogDayLoop: Had one on Groundhog Day 2017.²** The Christmas Comeback Crisis's timeline is also described as this by Wood Man in the side story, although it's not perfect, and has "trapped the "real real world" in it", explaining why memes/figments from 2017 & 2018 have proliferated. Only Wood Man is aware of this loop, though. In his words, "It feels like we're moving forward, but at the same time... we're not moving at all."²* GuestStar: There's been times when other [=YouTubers=] submitted their own rips to the channel. However, like all the other rippers, they go uncredited.²** [=LarryInc64=], another video game music channel, made [[ Buy Somethin' Will Ya! (Beta Mix)]]. He would later make more rips and become part of the channel's team.²** Aztrosist helped [[ in advertising Grand Dad 64]].²** [=GilvaSunner=] (the real one) participated in an AprilFoolsDay joke by uploading [[ Final Destination]] to his channel. He kindly credits a fraction of the team in the description.²*** In 2017, the two channels swapped upload schedules with eachother (the channels' content still remained the same though).²** [=RelaxAlax=] made a SelfParody of his Know Your Moves series for the channel in, fittingly enough, [[ a Smash Bros. rip]].²** Creator/CharlesMartinet reprised his role as Mario for [[ It's a me, Mario!]]²** [[ Live and Learn (Live Version)]] features Jun Senoue being shown [[ a certain famous rip]] (and having a good laugh over it).²** Music/TheLivingTombstone did [[ a joke remix]] of his famous ''Five Nights at Freddy's'' song, and submitted it to the channel. He later did the same with [[ his Five Nights at Freddy's 4]] song.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:H-P]]²* HappyBirthdayToYou: [[ This video]] implements the melody into [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} "His Theme"]], referencing its one year anniversary.²* HappyEndingOverride: The ''Christmas Comeback Crisis'' reveals that [[spoiler:due to The Voice being a Figment/human hybrid, he was able to survive Chad's MF Like Button by using Wood Man to keep the idea of The Voice alive, thus preserving him as a Figment. He then created a program to bring Figments into the real world, and used it to bring himself and the other Figments alive so he could take over the world.]]²* TheHero:²** Chad Warren serves as the protagonist of the reboot arc, an ardent defender of "Snow halation".²** Nozomi takes up his stead in the Christmas special for similar reasons.²* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:It's heavily implied that Chad died after using the MF Like Button to destroy The Voice and restore Snow Halation.]][[note]]Though he later makes a small reappearance in the 8/14/2016 stream, simply saying that Psy x Nozomi is [[spoiler: ballin'.]][[/note]]²* {{Homage}}: ''Christmas Comeback Crisis'' is one to ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' - its plot is relatively the same (an outside force turning a once-natural land into a purely mechanical one, and a small, cute hero(ine) putting an end to it), and the former's videos always cull music from the latter (most notably [[ the prologue]], an homage to the game's intro). Also, the latter game's BigBad makes a few appearances, and his {{leitmotif}} turns up far more frequently in the Christmas rips.²* HopeSpot: [[ "Pork Bean Outta Gas - MOTHER 3"]] has [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} D.Va]] failing to fart as she does in the other rips she appears in, giving viewers hope that her dreaded RunningGag was finally coming to an end... only for her to appear in several other rips afterward, farting as much as ever.²* HostileShowTakeover:²** Wood Man took over the channel after the Halloween special ended; however, all he did was shitpost on Twitter before leaving to fight Mega Man.²** A straighter example is the Voice Inside Your Head returning; he's the ArcVillain of the Christmas special and makes his motives apparent in the channel and video descriptions.²* HousePseudonym: In the album releases, artists who wanted to remain uncredited are given the name "Barney Rubble". For ''GSHQVGR Vol. FOUR HOURS!'', the house pseudonym was changed to "Principal Seymour Skinner" due to the album being a compilation of reboot songs. On other albums, uncredited artists are similarly given names related to the album's focus.²* {{Hypocrite}}: In [[ this video]], The Voice Inside Your Head proposes the option of [[MergedReality merging the Pre-Reboot and Post-Reboot universes]] without "Snow Halation", claiming that while ''The Flintstones'' ThemeTune is beloved and fits in well to any song, "Snow Halation" has caused too much discourse among [=SiIvaGunner=]'s fans due to being "weeb shit" (among other things). A few days later, a rip of [[ video was uploaded]] featuring the Voice's cover of "Go My Way". It even opens with the Voice giving a short speech thanking the fans for ensuring that there would be no more idol music on the channel.²* ImmediateSelfContradiction: Once, after fans sniffed out a [[StylisticSuck "low quality rip"]], [=SiIva=] congratulated the fans on finding it in the comments of another video of his. This exchange resulted:²-->'''kaabiimaster:''' i thought you only uploaded high quality rips\²'''[=SiIvaGunner=]:''' [[{{Catchphrase}} I only upload high quality video game rips.]]²* TheImmodestOrgasm: The sound of [[ "Loud Nigra"]], which is used as a RunningGag on the channel, is essentially an [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] example of this trope [[UpToEleven to the absolute extreme]].²* InconsistentDub: The channel seems to deliberately waver between referring to the channel/character as "[=SiIvaGunner=]" (with a second I) and "[=SilvaGunner=]" (with an L); notably, the Voice Inside Your Head always refers to it as "[=SiIvaGunner=]", while Chad Warden always uses "[[AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle SEE-vuh-gonn-NAHH]]". Album titles and similar promotional material has used both.²* IncrediblyLongNote: ²** [[ Prologue (Castle Gate)]] from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaI''.²** [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Live and]] [[ OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO]]²** [[VideoGame/MegaMan1 Elec Man]][[ 's theme]] has one that lasts 10 seconds... [[ThrowItIn and the rest of the video is just the beat and triangle wave.]]²** ''[[ His World]]'' from VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006, with added Loud Nigra, Magic Missiles, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick the Spoken Wikipedia Project article on "Cock and Ball Torture"]].²** ''[[ Game Over]]'' from VideoGame/SegaRally has one that lasts ''36 minutes''. [[spoiler:At 17:36 you can hear a voice whispering "grand dad", and at 23:27 you can hear a door knock three times.]]²** ''[[ Uncontrollable]]'' from VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX has one that starts at 1:09 which then changes to the [[RunningGag Flintstones theme]] at 2:09. This repeats at the 2:19 mark. ²** ''[[ Start:DASH!]]'' from VideoGame/LoveLiveSchoolIdolFestival...the second note lasts ''three minutes'' until a BaitAndSwitch occurs toward the end.²** ''[[ Ice Man]]'' from VideoGame/MegaMan1 has one that starts at the 12 second mark and lasts for the rest of the video.²* InnocuouslyImportantEpisode: The rip of the ''VideoGame/LoveLiveSchoolIdolFestival'' song "Futari Happiness (NOZOMI Mix)" (in which [=SiIvaGunner=]'s "[=HQripper=] 7.0" software causes problems with the rip, forcing him to get new ripping software from Loud Nigra) turns out to be connected with the reboot, according to [[ this video]][[labelnote:*]]though the first part of the audio had previously been distributed to people involved in the ARG[[/labelnote]].²* InsistentTerminology: [=SiIvaGunner=]'s videos don't contain "music", "remixes", "mashups", or anything like that. They contain ''"High Quality Video Game Rips"''.²* InterfaceSpoiler: A lot of commenters correctly predict a "Snow Halation" mashup when the video is 4:20 in length (occasionally plus or minus a second due to random errors in rendering).²* InTheStyleOf: A staple of the channel. ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' is almost always involved, even if another song is primarily featured.²* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: [[invoked]] Parodied with regards to the ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'' series in [[ this]] video. It's ostensibly the overworld theme from ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' (and uses that game's logo for the thumbnail), but the song itself is the title theme from ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros1'', with the image being ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros2'''s logo and the playlist link in the description going to that of ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''.²* JumpScare: ²** At the last second of [[spoiler:"Stage Start (Alternate Mix) - VideoGame/DonkeyKong", which is mostly a remix of the main theme of ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'', Loud Nigra comes in, and it's louder than the rest of the video.]]²** The lone rip of ''VideoGame/SpookysJumpScareMansion'', predictably, is mostly quiet... save for several abrupt, [[SensoryAbuse loud]] soundbites from the channel's {{Running Gag}}s.²** Any rip that uses the [[ Green de la Bean]] meme will most definitely have one of these, usually accompanied with SensoryAbuse to boot. Thankfully, the animation used (featuring a cartoon bean mascot) is a deliberate NightmareRetardant, plus later appearances have become more telegraphed.²** A Creepypasta-esque, ongoing version of this has started after the channel returned from its "pause" in early 2017. These rips usually begin with an image of a black boy wearing shorts and a life vest on a white background. The video zooms onto his face, and without warning, shifts to an edited, red-tinted photo of a celebrity with glowing white eyes while playing a loud noise, followed alarm sounds. The image fades away as the rip shifts to a completely unrelated video. [[NothingIsScarier Fans aren't sure what this even is]].²* KayfabeMusic: The various people that run the channel act as one entity, and always try to reassure people that "he" only uploads high quality video game rips. In addition, the one time they ''did'' upload regular video game music, the videos were later re-named "April Fool's Remixes", and the aforementioned prank from the actual [=GilvaSunner=] was said to be from a parody account.²* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:The Voice and Haltmann unceremoniously squash the Cinderella Girls and the Producer on live television to kick off the Christmas special.]]²* KnightTemplar: Mr. Rental is one as of [[ this rip]], wanting to ban ''all'' mashups from the channel, regardless of quality.²* LateArrivalSpoiler: ²** With how popular the remixes have become, the BaitAndSwitch intent is expected rather than not (although the channel still {{troll}}s listeners with how it surprises them).²** People who pay attention to the playlist section on the channel can already expect what games are being ripped on any particular day. To keep an hourly upload schedule, rips are uploaded in mass, and added to the playlists ahead of time using scheduled uploads. However, [=YouTube=]'s algorithm updates playlists whenever a video is added to one regardless, and since channels sort playlists by this algorithm as well, the rips somewhat get spoiled because of it.²* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: On July 7th, "A Grand New Era ~Finale~" was uploaded and quickly deleted in favor of an ARG that eventually resulted in the video being reuploaded for good. The only difference between [[ the leaked release (reuploaded on another channel)]] and [[ the current release]] is an additional scene before the merging sequence:²-->'''Voice:''' Oh, and Chad? If you happen to be epileptic, you might want to turn away. The restoration process could get a little messy on the eyes. Unless of course, you happen to have seen this process before. But you certainly couldn't have, right? Let us begin.²* LeaveTheCameraRunning: During the week between the [=Koriball2=] and [=Koriball2.5=] streams, the stream chat was fully functional (despite the stream being offline), leading to this effect. The chat inevitably devolved to a couple people [[SeinfeldianConversation having irrelevant conversations]].²* LeftHanging: The lore thread featuring Mr. Rental is ultimately never finished. However, [[ Behind the Scenes - Mr Rental: The Video Game]], gives us some information on how the series was supposed to end.²* LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand: Done with [[ "The Grand Finale"]], [[ the "beta mix"]] of ''The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy'', and [[ "Final Boss"]], marking the transition into the real songs. The [[ "Destruction of the Sammer Kingdom"]] rip also does this to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''[='=]s theme.²* LetsPlay: "[[ Let's Play - ]][[NonIndicativeName Super Mario RPG]]" is presented as one of ''7 Grand Dad''. [[spoiler:At first, the player speaks fondly of the game, but after getting a GameOver on the first level, he RageQuits, storms off to vent his frustration, and comes back to calmly announce that there will be no more episodes.]]²* LivingStatue: This is [=SiIvagunner=]'s AuthorAvatar, a digitally-modified bust of Antinous.²* LongList: Rips of ''Mario Forever'' usually simply list the console origin as "PC". For the [[ title screen rip]], it is apparently on "PC, Windows, Flash, Computer, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Personal Computer]], Android, Mobile Phone, Samsung Galaxy, Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 2000, Desktop, Linux Mint PC, Mac, [=HTML5=], Mario Platform, Super Windows 8.1, Windows Microsoft 7, Chrome OS, Mobile Android Kitkat, Macintosh Apple Computer, Windows Virtual Box [=VMWare=], Wii U Nintendo Browzer Orygynal, Nintendololo On Afficial 3DS, Linux Super, Ubuntu, Spongebob Stupid in Maryo Simulator (Portable Device)".²* LongSongShortScene: The rip of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''[='=]s [[ Power of "NEO"]] pokes fun at the fact that this song plays for a ZeroEffortBoss.²** A similar thing is done for "[[ A Critical Battle]]" from ''VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdIIAssimilation'', poking fun at the shortness of the mid-boss battles.²* LongTitle: The actual Bandcamp titles of some of the rips are downright ridiculous, such as [[ The Decisive Battle - Final Fantasy VI]][[note]]"Childish Gambino, Drake and Waka Flocka Flame watch as Ashley suplexes a train with Flandre inside screaming during a &micro;'s concert but suddenly Chip the Ripper shows up so it's all good"[[/note]] and [[ Unknown from M.E.

Knuckles from the Knuckles the Echidna Series [Knuckles of the Year Edition] & Knuckles (Full Version & Knuckles)"[[/note]]²* LuckySeven: As a reference to the "Grand Dad" bootleg game's full title, "Super Mario 7" / "7 Grand Dad", the number seven (as well as seven thousand, AKA [[{{Pun}} seven grand]]) serves as an ArcNumber of [=SiIvaGunner=] and his works.²* MaliciousMisnaming: Chad Warden refers to the Voice Inside Your Head as the "Gay Mexican-Ass in My Ass" on multiple occasions.²* TheManBehindTheMan:²** As revealed in ''[[GameMod Pok&eacute;mon Grand Dad Edition]]'', [[spoiler:The Voice Inside Your Head was only a conduit for something much more sinister.]]²** The whole channel is manned by an internet user named Chaze the Chat, who identified himself in one of the last videos [=SiIvaGunner=] posted.²* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: The [[ "Agent Yoru o Yuku"]] April Fools 2017 rip, which brings together a massive AllStarCast to perform a huge meme compilation to the tune of "Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga", including the cast of {{WebAnimation/TOME}} (with [=LittleKuriboh=] doing a [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries YGOTAS bit]]), Creator/KiraBuckland, [[Anime/LoveLiveSunshine Corina Boettger]], and [[Anime/YuGiOhArcV Matt Shipman]], with mixing and mastering by Music/TheLivingTombstone, among others.²* MergedReality: The Voice Inside Your Head offers Chad Warden the opportunity to create a world where all of [=SiIvaGunner=]'s traditions before and during the reboot co-exist, with the exception of the divisive Snow Halation. [[spoiler:Chad ultimately accepts this, since all he wants is the real [=SiIva=] back, but manages to get Snow Halation back anyway.]]²* MoodWhiplash: ²** [[ This "rip"]] of the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube startup fanfare [[NightmareFuel begins with]] [[spoiler:a particularly creepy song from ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', combined with [[Film/{{Carrie}} "THEY'RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU!"]] and [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] {{laughing|Mad}}]]... then abruptly changes to the rubber ducky version of the actual song at the very end.²** The infamous [[ Ai no Uta rip]] from ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''. A cute and peaceful ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' song [[spoiler:that suddenly gets mixed with the loud and {{Wangst}}y [[ Crawling]] from ''Music/LinkinPark'']].²** Done in the [[ "final" reboot rip]], where the singer of the DK Rap tells fans of Snow Halation to shoot themselves in the middle of the song.²* MythologyGag: ²** [=SiIvaGunner=], obviously referencing the original [=SilvaGunner=] channel.²** [[ Snowmobile Accident]] may initially seem out of place unless you look at the real [=GilvaSunner's=] channel, where he has [[ an almost identical video,]] which instead uses the Slider theme from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''.²** [[ Gerudo Valley]] from ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for Wii U and 3DS'' shows Diddy Kong for less than a second before switching to Link, a reference to [=GilvaSunner's=] video of the original song.²** The [[ Beta Mix]] of "A Secret Course" from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' had a screenshot of the game's title screen fade in from white at the beginning of the video, much like most of the real [=GilvaSunner=]'s music uploads for the same game.²** The [[ Director's Cut]] of ''The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy''[='=]s title theme is actually just ([[SurpriseCreepy at least, mostly]]) the audio of the opening scene of "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E12MargeVsTheMonorail Marge Vs. the Monorail]]" from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', where Homer reenacts the opening of ''The Flintstones'', playing with the premise of the channel's reboot.²** The [[ Beta Mix]] of Bowser's Theme, despite being part of the reboot, uses the Flinstones theme song, because the [[ pre-reboot upload]] of Bowser's Theme used the Simpsons theme song.²** [[ The "Map" rip]] from ''[[Franchise/LooneyTunes Daffy Duck: Fowl Play]]'' features Daffy exclaiming, "Not 'GO MY WAY!!', you [=SoundClown=]!"²** The [[ announcement of the channel ending]] was done in the style of a "the nutshack theme but X" video, which became [[MemeticMutation extremely widespread on YouTube]] after ''The Nutshack'' become popular on the channel.²* NamesTheSame: {{Invoked}} a few times for the sake of the joke. For instance, ''VideoGame/EarthBound''[='=]s [[ "Sanctuary Guardian"]] is a straightforward, completely unedited rip of the original "Sanctuary Guardian"... from ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''.²* NeverTrustATitle: Waluigi doesn't actually own the tacostand in the ''Waluigi's Tacostand'' rip. The stand is instead owned by El Bean. ²* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The cause of the ContinuityReboot? [[spoiler:Chad Warden telling [=SiIva=] fans not to dislike-bomb Snow Halation rips, leading them into a discourse.]]²** Also the reason the voice returns for the Christmas Finale? [[spoiler:The user base kept him alive by thinking about him, as that is how figments stay alive.]]²* NonIndicativeName: Sometimes the rips don't play the song suggested in their titles at all, not even at the beginning in order to kickstart the BaitAndSwitch. For example, in "[[ Bob-omb Battlefield (Extended Mix) - Super Mario 64]]", while the song ''does'' sound like it could come from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', at no point does it actually resemble "Bob-omb Battlefield" at all.²* OminousVisualGlitch: The thumbnail for [[ this video]] counts.²* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: The Voice Inside Your Head is only known as such, since he believes [[NoNeedForNames names are not important]]. He only provides the nickname to Chad Warden for sake of being addressed by someone.²* OnlyMostlyDead: [[spoiler:What happened to The Voice after being destroyed by Chad at the end of the reboot arc. While he ''died'', the idea of him was preserved through Wood Man, thus enabling him to return in the future.]]²* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: ²** After the infamous "Harlequin Baby Incident"[[labelnote:*]]A video of the puzzle room music from ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' had been uploaded, and contained a tasteless pastiche of the continue and GameOver screens for a Russian bootleg ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat'' game for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis; instead of a gory picture of Felix, however, the viewers were linked to a shock video of a [[{{Squick}} harlequin baby]] screaming.[[/labelnote]], [=SiIva=] actually broke character in order to properly apologize to their fans, explain that the now-deleted video was uploaded by one now-fired contributor without permission from the rest of the group, and that tasteless shock humor like that is not supposed to be part of the channel's directive.²** The channel's actual ending not only features the first contributor (Chaze the Chat) showing his face for the first time on the channel, but also has a number of subtler clues (for one, the title rather directly says the channel is ending - something none of the {{Series Fauxnale}}s did - and the description is simply a reiteration of [=SiIva=]'s CatchPhrase). This was presumably necessary after the repeated fake-outs.²* OrwellianRetcon:²** The [[ P-R-O-G-R-A-M]] rip was originally titled "P-R-O-G-R-A-M (OST Version)", as there was another rip of the song that already had the name that functioned as the channel's trailer. After the newer rip became the channel trailer out of fan demand, the "OST Version" subtitle was removed from the video, and the original "P-R-O-G-R-A-M" rip was labelled the "Alternate Mix".²** Volume 6.66 of the "Highest Quality Video Game Rips" album series was updated to add four new tracks[[note]]"Money Waterfalls" by digboy, "Psytales - The Gangnam Moon" by RosalinaSama, "KK Gotye" by digboy, and "Pursuit ~ Planet Wisp" by Wendyfag[[/note]] and rename a number of others.[[note]]"Metroids at an Exhibition" was originally titled "Tourian Mussorgsky", "I'm Proud To Be An American - Cover by Hank Hill (FNAF Circus Mix)" was originally titled "(ASMR) Hank Hill whispers softly into your ear while recording his country album", "Don't Hug Me I'm Stylish: Notebook Brainwashes The Kids Into Triple-Q's Creepy Gangnam Cult (FNAF Music Box Mix)" was originally titled "What's Your Favorite Style?", "ninelie" was originally titled "ninelie <8bitv>", "Pachelbel's Arm Cannon in D" was originally titled "Metroid Ending, as composed by Pachelbel", "Wario Ruins The Norfair Music From NES Metroid" was originally titled "TOO BAD, METROID TIME!", "Funky Kong's Spooky Ectoplasm Blaster Store" was originally titled "Danny Funkton", "Super Kirby Bros.: Melee in Dreamland" was originally titled "Kirby sucks in this game so it isn't even worth playing", "Soulja Boy cranks so hard he literally goes back in time" was originally titled "Cranko Trigger", "[=aLIEz=]" was originally titled "[=aLIEz=] <g5v>", "The Mad Convoy Race out of Pepsi City" was originally titled "Pepsi Man Adventure 2", and "ninelie (Instrumental)" was originally titled "ninelie <8bitv> (Instrumental)". Many of these renamed songs were done by ingx24, with the exception of the "ninelie" tracks, which was made by Stella &#9829;, and the Soulja Boy/Chrono Trigger track, which was made by Avolience.[[/note]] In addition, three early tracks were moved to later in the album[[note]]"A Gay Old Time with Kzinssie" was #13, "DAD DAD DAD&#12304;&#12496;&#12452;&#12531;&#12477;&#12540;&#12473; X &#12354;&#12357; &#12354;&#12357; &#12354;&#12357;&#12305;" was #25, and "Memory of cocoa butter kisses" was #27.[[/note]], and "Quest to the Tower of Emblems and Adventures and Time Keys" corrected the "[=QTQTQk=]" mispelling of QTQTQ's name.%%Apparently, according to the update announcement trailer, one of the tracks was glitched before the update. Which track was it, and how was it glitched?²* OutOfCharacterMoment: As acknowledged by its description, ''Stagg Street Arrangements'' strays from the channel's video game-focused content. It's a cover album where the songs are done InTheStyleOf of certain games, such as Namco's arcade chip and Pok&eacute;mon soundfonts. The final track, "Everyday Goodbyes", is a live cover, but it incorporates "The Flintstones" and "Snow halation" into its instrumental.²* OverlyLongGag:²** One common edit is to loop the song's intro for the entire video. Fans of it have referred to this as "musical blue balls".²** "[[ Nightmare]]" from ''VideoGame/YumeNikki'' is essentially a 16-minute, audio-only walkthrough of how to trigger the infamous "Uboa" event (where the track plays in-game). [[spoiler:At the end, when the event is finally triggered, the track is pitch-shifted to "GO MY WAY!!". To add further insult to injury, speeding up the ending reveals a sound clip of WebVideo/FilthyFrank saying, "You just got pranked, bro! Ha ha!"]]²** ''[[ Level 1 (Desert Bus)]]'' from ''VideoGame/PennAndTellersSmokeAndMirrors'' contains ''the entire 8 hours'', while ''[[ Beloved Tomboyish Girl (Extended Mix)]]'' from [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Touhou 6]] features a paulstretch that lasts '''''[[InJoke 9:09:09]]'''''. [[spoiler:In both videos, ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' theme plays at the 7 hour mark.]]²** [[ The extended]] [[ version]] of "Cave Dungeon" from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', when combined are '''over 12 hours''' long. [[spoiler:They are extremely slowed down versions of the song building up speed for 12 hours until it returns to the normal speed.]]²** "[[ BIG (Extended Mix)]]" from ''VideoGame/PaRappaTheRapper 2'' goes through its first two verses entirely unedited; the joke doesn't kick in until the third.²** The rip of the [[ pause menu jingle]] from ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'' is '''50 minutes''' long, featuring [[spoiler:well over a hundred different jokes, memes, and references. A number of brave commenters took it upon themselves to try to document every joke in the video, and still are not sure whether they have succeeded]].²** [[ Mega Man 3's Stage Select rip]] takes it [[UpToEleven up a step with a 1 HOUR AND 50 MINUTE MIX]]²* OverlyPrepreparedGag: On September 15th, 2016 (the 1st anniversary of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''[='=]s release), Silva uploaded nothing but ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}''-related rips. This went on for almost twenty-four hours, seemingly culminating with an actual ''Undertale'' "Megalovania" rip that's intentionally underwhelming. But then, thirty minutes later, along comes the simultaneous release of '''39''' ''Undertale''-related rips -- the single biggest release in the channel's history!²* PaintingTheMedium: ²** "anouncement.wmv", a video imitating the style of early [=YouTube=], has a broken thumbnail.²** "The Voice" behind the reboot occasionally types in an &#65359;&#65357;&#65353;&#65358;&#65359;&#65365;&#65363; &#65350;&#65359;&#65358;&#65364; when he takes control, as seen in [[ these]] [[ tweets]]&#65294; ²* {{Pastiche}}: The video announcing his AprilFoolsDay album, ''[[ anouncement.wmv]]'', imitates the style of countless [[StylisticSuck poorly-made]] tutorial Website/YouTube videos from the mid-to-late 2000s (including a mashup of several once-popular songs from the era to boot, such as [[ Dreamscape]] by 0009 Sound System and [[ Bodies]] by Drowning Pool.)²* ThePowerOfLove: [[spoiler:What "Snow Halation" ultimately represents to [=SiIva=] and the fans who love it, according to Chad Warden. He also ends the war between him and the Voice Inside Your Head by using the ultimate form of [=YouTube=] love: the MF Like Button. This ultimately kills both the Voice and Chad.]]²* PowerTrio: [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Grand Dad]], [[Franchise/LoveLive Snow Halation]] (usually represented by Nozomi or Nico), and [[TheImmodestOrgasm Loud Nigra]]. As of late, Loud Nigra has been replaced by [[WesternAnimation/TheNutshack Tito Dick]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:R-Z]]²* ReadTheFreakingManual: For rips, the description will say "Please read [[ the channel description]]" at the bottom.²* RealTrailerFakeMovie: Crosses over with FictionalVideoGame in [[ this video]], a pastiche of the reveal trailer for ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' depicting a similarly updated version of ''7 Grand Dad''. It's lampshaded in the fine print at the very end, which remarks that it "won't come out, [[ShrugOfGod probably]]." [[ Then it was announced]] [[SubvertedTrope to be real,]] but [[DoubleSubversion was later cancelled.]]²* RedHerring: There's [[ a playlist]] for ''[[VideoGame/HalfLife Half-Life 3]]'' on the channel. All [[Memes/ValveSoftware three]] of its videos are private.²* ReferenceOverdosed: Trying to list all of the different references, musical or otherwise, that are put into his videos would take up most of the page. Sometimes even a single video will qualify. [[ This "high quality rip"]] of the [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf battle theme]] in particular is loaded with them. [[ Pause Screen]] from ''VideoGame/WarioWorld'' [[UpToEleven goes a million steps further]] by being ''50 minutes'' worth of Wario nyah-nyah-ing to the melody of ''hundreds'' of different songs.²* {{Retraux}}: Any rip [[InTheStyleOf in the style of]] a song from the UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 or an earlier system could be considered this.²* TheReveal: In ''[[GameMod Pok&eacute;mon Grand Dad Edition]]'' (which part of the reboot finale ARG), the Voice Inside Your Head confesses upon defeat that despite his previous claims, he doesn't really care about what [=YouTube=] commenters think, and that he was just a pawn of something much worse.²-->'''Voice:'''\²A vitriolic... thing. It wreaks its revenge upon the world.\²Or so I think. Truthfully, I don't know what drives it.\²But it is determined.\²Vile and incomprehensible beyond words.\²It channels an ancient evil within it.

Basically, it's [[spoiler:the reboot]] a la ''WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck''.²** [[ "Time for the Climax!"]] from ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'' has the rip cut short with an issued apology for being a "low quality rip." Likely because it makes an ''incredibly'' obvious joke, [[spoiler:that being Loud Nigra.]]²* SeriesFauxnale: ²** On March 30th, right after [[ the announcement]] of his first album, [=SiIva=] uploaded [[ a rip]] of [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} "Last Goodbye"]], then proceeded to not upload anything for the entire rest of the day. Many assumed it was the end of the channel (as the video's title and production values implied); however, he made a grand comeback on AprilFoolsDay.²** Then his channel got taken down the next week, causing many to fear that [=SiIva=] was gone for good...until he announced on Twitter that he would be coming back.²** History repeated itself on May 30th, when [=SiIva=] revealed another GreatestHitsAlbum and proceeded to reupload "Last Goodbye", upload a new rip of "Good Night" (combined with "Goodbye to a World", which includes lyrics about saying goodbye)... then not uploading anything for several days. However, on June 7th, [[ he released a video]] announcing the release of "The All New... [=SiIvaGunner=]... [[spoiler:[[Creator/{{Konami}} PACHINKO]] [[TakeThat MACHINE]]]]!" He then went back to uploading videos.²* SensoryAbuse:²** Occasionally used, particularly whenever [[Memes/SonicTheHedgehog Sanic]] turns up.²** Ironically, rips featuring Loud Nigra only ''sometimes'' fit this trope.²** In a less traditional sense, the [=Koriball2=] stream fit the bill - it was composed of several songs (some altered, some not) playing over each other, with no attempt to make them harmonize. Predictably, [[ the results]][[note]]The link is only a fragment of the whole stream.[[/note]] sound terrible.²** Rips featuring the "You Just Got Beaned" meme fit this trope, sometimes in more ways than one.²* ShoutOut: [[ShoutOut/SiIvaGunner There are enough references and jokes that go beyond the actual music changes that it gets its own page!]]²* SiameseTwinSongs: The Flintstones theme and "Snow Halation" are often featured back-to-back within the same rip.²** "[[VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot Program Rhythm]]" (better known as "Puzzle Room") and the "Continue?" music from the Felix The Cat bootleg. When they both appear in a rip, they're treated as a single reference/song rather than two. {{Downplayed}}, as the former usually appears on its own.²* StealthPun:²** He uploaded ''seven Grand'' Metropolis rips, and only the seventh was edited.²** Several other rips also make ''auditory'' puns, usually due to the titles' liberal use of ExactWords. For example, the rip of [[VideoGame/{{Shantae}} "We Love Burning Town"]] features the sounds of a literal burning town, and the rip of [[VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash "Prism City"]] has [[spoiler:the sound of paper being ripped.]]²** On certain holidays (and other specific dates), the channel uploads a bunch of songs that pertain to the holiday in question, often making a pun on the holiday's name. For example, on April 20th (also known as [[ "4/20"]]) the channel uploaded a bunch of "rips" that included Music/SnoopDogg's infamous [[MemeticMutation "smoke weed everyday"]] song (among other songs about marijuana). On May 8th, Mother's Day, "rips" of ''VideoGame/{{Mother}}'' music were uploaded.²** [[ The "Positive Mix"]] of [[VideoGame/MrGimmick "Aporia"]] [[spoiler:is a rendition of both "Roundabout" and "Heart of the Sunrise", both songs by '''Music/{{Yes}}'''.]]²** [[ "Nocturne of Shadow"]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' starts with said song, but after it finishes, it transitions into a remix of [[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles "Big Arms"]], using ''Ocarina of Time'''s soundfont. Why? Because the "Big Arms" theme was also used as the theme of the Nocturne area in ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles''.²** The "[[Music/Maroon5 Maroon]] [[VideoGame/PokemonGO GO]]" rips seems like a blatant excuse to make Maroon 5 mashups under a FictionalVideoGame, but it's all clear why when you realize 'go' is ''five'' in Japanese.²** [[ Dream to Return Land - Kirby Does His Taxes]] is a ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}''-style remix of Music/PorterRobinson and Music/{{Madeon}}'s "Anime/{{Shelter}}"; a ''tax shelter''.²* StockSitcomGrandFinale: [[ Title Theme & Ending - 7 GRAND DAD]] has Grand Dad, Nozomi, and Loud Nigra walking through a ContinuityCavalcade, with the final location being the tower from ''Tengami'', the channel's standard header image. Nozomi and Loud Nigra continue walking, but Grand Dad stops to look up.²* StylisticSuck: ²** The channel itself is meant to be an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] of this; as Chaze the Chat explained [[ here]], he was one of many people who had grown sick of [=YouTube=] users churning out bad content while pretending to be Creator/LittleKuriboh, so Chaze eventually decided to create [=GiIvaSunner=] to bring unto [=YouTube=] an impersonator who actually produced ''good'' content for once.²** "anouncement.wmv" is made in the style of early [=YouTube=] videos, including the usage of Windows Movie Maker and Hypercam; the word "announcement" is even misspelled in the title!²** [[ The "Alternate Mix"]] of [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} "Megalovania"]] is a terrible-sounding mashup with the ''Film/SpaceJam'' theme... [[spoiler:until 1:04, at which point the music turns into a Waters Of Megalovania mix that sounds much better (transitioning with an audio clip of WebVideo/FilthyFrank saying [[TrollingCreator "You just got pranked, bro!"]], no less).]]²** The [[ Mr. Rental]] rip features a crudely-animated recreation of the Flintstones-themed LeadIn for an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.²** [[ Menu - Garfield]] is not actually a song, but instead an [[StylisticSuck "animated"]] homage to a similarly-styled animation, WebVideo/{{Garfielf}}.²** [[ Fountain of Dreams - Super Smash Bros. Melee]] lazily edits a multitude of the channel's running gags over the original song. [[SensoryAbuse At the same time.]]²* SuddenDownerEnding: [[ "The Grand Finale (Alternate Mix)"]] from ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'', one of the last rips before the true conclusion of the reboot, ended with all hope of the old gags returning dashed, with the community's actions having supposedly led to Chad Warden's death.²-->"[=SiIvaGunner=] is dead, and it's all because of you. It's all... because... [[YouBastard of you!]] You fucked up![[SubliminalSeduction pu dekcuf uoY !uoy fo-]]"²* SuperDeformed: "Smol Nozomi," while uncommonly seen on the channel proper, is almost always seen as the embodiment of [[Anime/LoveLive Snow Halation]] on the channel. "Smol" variants of other idols from the series have also been featured on rare occasions, most often on their respective birthdays.²* SyntheticVoiceActor: Siiva's "voice" is [=VoiceForge=]'s "Wiseguy" option. You may recognize it as WebVideo/{{Garfielf}}, or from certain Website/GoAnimate videos.²** The above-mentioned ''Menu - Garfield'' video gives Grand Dad [=VoiceForge's "JerkFace"=] option in order to play the role of Jon to Siiva's Garfielf.²** [[spoiler:The Voice Inside Your Head uses [[ UK Graham of]].]]²** Mr. Rental's voice is provided by Microsoft Sam. Even in the ''Franchise/LooneyTunes'' rips that give him SpeakingSimlish, it's rendered as Sam's infamous "soi soi soi" sound.²* TakeThat: [[TakeThat/SiIvaGunner Has enough for its own page.]]²* TakeThatAudience: ²** After the comments section erupted into a war between people with [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Dedede]] and [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Peridot]] avatars (eventually ending in favor of the former), a StylisticSuck rip of Dedede's theme from ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' was uploaded (and subsequently deleted, though you can find a mirror [[ here]]).²** The entire ''JOEJOE'S BIZZAERE JOJOKE'' album is a jab at people requesting rips from ''[=JoJo=]'', most apparent with the way it was disguised as a proper album.²** Another jab at the comments section comes from [[ "Overworld"]] from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'', which consists of goofy text-to-speech voices reading off some of the dumber comments.²* {{Troll}}: What Gilva was before his pranks gained a fandom of their own.²* UncommonTime: Songs with uncommon time signatures are occasionally ripped on the channel, such as "[[VideoGame/Mother3 Strong One (Masked Man)]]" which is 29/16.²* VillainBall: The Voice Inside Your Head [[spoiler:merges both the original and reboot universes without Snow Halation, then makes Chad his partner in running [=SiIvaGunner=] Enterprises. Unfortunatley for the Voice, Chad uses his new position to bring Snow Halation back himself.]]²* VisualPun: The cover of ''Greatest Hits Volume 3 & Knigra'' shows [=SiIva=]'s avatar ripping a piece of paper in half.²* WeCanRuleTogether: After the universes have merged, the Voice Inside Your Head offers Chad Warden to help guide the Grand New Era together as the Grandest Dads, a proposition Chad accepts. [[spoiler:This turns out to be a big mistake on the Voice's part.]]²* WelcomeToCorneria: [=SiIva's=] usual response to comments that question his (high-quality) rips: "I only upload high quality video game rips."²* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Voice Inside Your Head. [[spoiler:He booby trapped the High Quality Ripping software [=SiIva=] bought from the Nigra store so that he could initiate the High Quality Reboot. He did this to create a universe devoid of the infighting Chad Warden started concerning the act of dislike bombing "Snow Halation" rips. Later, he offers Chad the return of all the channel's old memes at the cost of the removal of Snow Halation to prevent further discourse, with Chad ultimately accepting, and keeps true to his word, even allowing Chad to join him]].²** [[spoiler:Although his position as a well-intentioned extremist hasn't changed, it's revealed that the Voice ultimately wasn't the cause of the reboot in the Pokemon [[GameMod rom hack]], but he's been trying to protect the channel from a [[GreaterScopeVillain bigger threat]] that ''did'' cause the reboot]].²* WhamEpisode:²** [[ This "Snow halation" rip]], which ended up starting the ContinuityReboot and initiating the channel's first plotline. (Also, [[ this rip]] hammers in that [=SiIva=] is NotHimself, since it takes [[ a Flintstones remix]] and replaces it with ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.)²** [[ This video]], which finally elaborates on what happened to [=SiIva=] and reveals that ''someone'' was behind it.²** A stream held on August 14th, 2016 had [=SiIvaGunner=] declare that mashups are no longer considered high quality, accompanied by [[ a video of Mr. Rental going on a rampage against mashups]].²** [[ "the nutshack theme but the first nutshack is replaced with me ending the channel"]], the video that confirmed that [=SiIvaGunner=] was coming to a close.²** [[ Prologue - The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis]]. A pyramid headed figure [[spoiler: breaks into SiIva's home, uploads something onto his computer allowing him to create robots, creates a futuristic city, destroys a ship with Grand Dad, Nigra, and Meta Knight, and captures every meme except Nozomi.]] The person responsible for this? [[spoiler: '''THE VOICE IN YOUR HEAD''']]²** [[ One particular audiolog]] reveals that [[spoiler:Haltmann has apparently been working on WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget, who proceeds to attack the voice]].²** [[ In the announcement]] for the new album "Inspector Gunner", [[spoiler:the Gadgetini Bot breaks down due to a DMCA, and Haltmann takes the reigns.]]²* WhamLine:²** Halfway through [[ This video]], [[spoiler: The Voice Inside Your Head proposes a MergedReality with memes from both before and after the reboot, and the video appears to be the end of the reboot (especially since The Voice admits he's getting tired of the current universe and starting to miss the old one)... until The Voice reveals that this new reality [[RunningGagged will exclude Snow Halation.]]]]²** "Hahahahaha... I'm back." - [[spoiler:[[HesBack The Voice In Your Head]]]]²** "[[ You can shut up now.]] [[spoiler:[[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget I'm always on duty!]]]]"²** "[[ No matter.]] [[spoiler:The Voice is gone anyway.]]"²* WhoWritesThisCrap: [[ DK Rap (Reprise)]] ends on this note.²--> [[spoiler:"What the fuck? I have not seen ''Film/SilenceOfTheLambs''. This joke isn't funny. Just bring back Grand Dad."]]²* WrapItUp: [[ Behind the Scenes - Mr Rental: The Video Game]], posted after the channel's end, serves to tie up a major loose end in the channel's lore.²* YouKeepUsingThatWord: In [[ Level Theme 1 - The Flintstones: Burgertime in Bedrock]], [=SiIva=] pops in briefly to clear a few misconceptions; mainly, using the word "soundfont" in reference to consoles that use ''synthesizers'', such as the NES, the SEGA Genesis, and the Game Boy.²[[/folder]]²²----²->Music: [=SiIvaGunner=]\²Composer: TV Tropes\²Playlist: [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones]]\²Platform: Internet\²\²Please read the channel description.²----
