1* The most famous one is [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones "Grand Dad"]], an OffModel rendition of Mario (paired with Fred Flintstone) from a bootlegged version of ''The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy'' that became famous from one of [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Joel]]'s streams.* In a close second would be [[Franchise/LoveLive "Snow Halation"]], which became one through being Triple-Q's favorite Franchise/LoveLive song. SlippySlideyIceWorld songs have a 90% chance of playing it.** As a "RunningGag within a RunningGag", most rips with Snow Halation tend to get a disproportionate amount of dislikes, even if it features for [[ less than half a second]]. This carried on after the ContinuityReboot, being its main Main/PlotPoint, as well as most [[Videogame/TheIdolmaster Go My Way]] rips getting dislike-bombed. ** If a video is listed as 4:20 in, it's not a weed joke, it's not a coincidence, it's usually a full-length "Snow Halation" mashup. [[note]]Due to certain margins of error in rendering, rips timed at 4:19 or 4:21 also usually wind up as such a mashup.[[/note]]* The channel also features a lot of gags carried over from the Soundclown community: ** [[ Loud Nigra]], which was used prominently enough to be featured on the channel's header image.** [[ "Freestyle"]] by Chip tha [[Main/{{Pun}} Ripper]].** [[Music/{{Psy}} "Gangnam Style"]], [[Wrestling/JohnCena "My Time is Now"]], and [[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} "Megalovania"]].** If you can hear steel drums in a rip, you can probably expect [[Music/SouljaBoy "Crank Dat"]] to show up.** Music/SmashMouth's [[ All Star]] is also occasionally used, mostly due to its association with ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', which is where the song achieved MemeticMutation status.** Music/{{Gorillaz}} also makes some occasional appearances, in particular "[[ Stylo]]" and "[[ Feel Good Inc.]]", although other songs have also shown up as well.** [[ "Fuck Bees"]] is sampled in a number of rips.* A gag common during the channel's early days was looping the beginning of a song for the entirety of the song's length, referred to by the channel's fans as "blue-balls rips". Blue-balls rips were slowly phased out as the channel continued but still pop up from time to time. These rips were later compiled into [[ their own April Fool's album]].* On several Pokémon rips and even some non-Pokémon related rips, some of [=JustinRPG's=] infamous songs, many involving his "marriage" to Reshiram, have been featured. This gag [[RunningGagged ended after the reboot]][[note]]Though it later made a single [[ comeback]][[/note]], and in his place, Pokémon songs started becoming remixes of songs from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''.* [[Film/SpaceJam "Space Jam"]] shows up occasionally, but since it has become a sort of {{Cliche}} in mashups, it's never used normally. However, it can show up alongside other songs, or in songs that do not use 4/4 time. Most commonly it will be used for intentionally terrible mashups, with Charles Barkley's head badly photoshopped over something in addition to a rainbow filter playing over the video.* During the ContinuityReboot, many of the three most famous running gags were replaced with parallels: ''Flintstones'' was superseded by the themes of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', "Snow halation" became [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster "GO MY WAY!!"]], and Loud Nigra gets replaced with the [[StockScream Howie Long Scream]].[[note]]Though these had all been used in videos before the reboot.[[/note]]* After the end of the reboot, the theme song of ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack'' (a series infamous for its [[Horrible/WesternAnimation low quality]]) was introduced as a new recurring joke.** Similarly to "Snow Halation", many ''Nutshack'' rips have a tendency to get dislike-bombed due to its ForcedMeme nature, though not to the same extent.* Sometimes specific games will have jokes tied to their soundtracks:** Beta Mixes of songs from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' are almost always remixes of songs from ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX''.** ''VideoGame/SonicCD'' Beta Mixes are always the song done in the Sega Genesis synthesizer.** ''VideoGame/{{Deltarune}}'' Beta Mixes often use Earthbound/Mother 3 soundfonts.** ''VideoGame/PaRappaTheRapper'' Gamma Mixes place the song's vocals over a different electronic instrumental.** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys''. Each upload of the track "Circus" from the first game quickly transitions to a completely unrelated mashup, with the titles getting more ridiculous each rip. Lampshaded [[ here]]).** Nearly every rip from ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' has been a cover of a song from ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' in the game's soundfont.** Several of the ''Series/CoryInTheHouse'' licensed game rips are actually covers of various anime openings, such as [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Cruel Angel's Thesis]] in the game's soundfont. Rather fitting, since calling ''Cory in the House'' "the best anime of all time" is a rather popular [[MemeticMutation meme]].** Uploads of the "Main Theme" of ''Franchise/LooneyTunes'' are simple, black-and-white animations featuring Mr. Rental with pixel-art assets. Uploads of [[FictionalVideoGame Mr. Rental: The Video Game]] are also animations featuring Mr. Rental, but they are in color, and most of the assets were [[StylisticSuck obviously drawn in MS Paint]].** Rips from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' often feature ''Creator/NicolasCage'' as a source, based on infamous mod ''[[ The Legend of Zelda: The Cage's Mask]]''. Most commonly, the infamous [[Film/TheWickerMan2006 "Not the Bees!"]] line.* Many songs get re-ripped over and over again as a running gag:** "[[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Slider]]" is the biggest one, getting remixed at least twenty times. This is due to the original rendition being the fist rip to really go viral. [[spoiler:The final Slider rip, the [=N64DD=] version, ends with Mario [[OffscreenInertia finally reaching the end of the slide]].]]** ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' rips in general count; it's by far the most ripped game on the channel, with almost ''[[ 170 rips]]'' (the game was at the peak of its popularity during the months the channel was active). The most ripped song from the game is, of course, "Megalovania".** "[[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Live and Learn]]" and "[[VideoGame/DonkeyKong64 DK Rap]]" get ripped a lot, and both have their own running gags listed below.** Related is the "Beta Mix" song tag, which is applied to many re-ripped songs. This led to more bizarre "mixes" over time. "Circus" from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' is the biggest example, having such mixes as "The Mix Behind The Slaughter", "Mix Version Mix Mix", and "Mixorola".* "[[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys 5 nights]] of [[Music/SnoopDogg snop dog]]" crops up most of the time when [=SiIva=] streams and [[ some]] [[ rips]].* To a lesser extent, [[VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX Uncontrollable.]]* Whenever Mr Rental appears, he runs someone over with his car, or at least tries to.* Whenever a rip of the [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong64 DK Rap]] is posted, expect there to be gratuitous [[MemeticMutation coconut guns]].* Whenever a rip has [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 Live and Learn]] in it, expect the "OOOOOH" to be [[IncrediblyLongNote incredibly long.]]* On occasion, some rips show a "Bowflex Revolution" infomercial video, playing the titled rip's music in the background.* Whenever an announcement video for an album is posted, [=GiIva=] will always be flustered as to why the artist and song names get "corrupted"--of course, it's because the albums properly credit the channel's creative team.* The infamous "[[ Pokemon Go Song]]", sometimes called "I Play Pokemon Go Everyday". Mishovy Silenosti, the kid who sung the song even briefly replaced all the memes in the channel's banner, before disappearing entirely. * In MIDI-based rips, the tune of [[ Night Walk]] from ''[[VideoGame/RhythmHeaven Rhythm Tengoku]]'' shows up from time to time.* As of September 2016, the [[ Green de la Bean Facebook meme]] has occasionally show up in rips as a JumpScare, and always accompanied by SensoryAbuse as well.* Any rip that features the ''Series/LazyTown'' song "We Are Number One" will include the word "One" or the number "1" in its title.* The leitmotif of the [[VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot Haltmann Works Company]] shows up here and there as well. This is a reference to the source material, where the leitmotif slipped itself into many of the game's tracks to symbolize the company's takeover of Planet Popstar. This became a lot more common as of the Christmas Comeback Crisis, due to Haltmann's role as TheDragon.* [[ Haunted House, by 8-Bit Beast,]] is an infamous running joke for how awful the original song is. You can expect to see it in rips that contain the words "House", "Beast", "Castle", or "Boss" (referring to [[ this remix]]).* Any rip that features music from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories'' will, more often than not, have poor audio quality, usually bordering on SensoryAbuse.* By the end of the channel, ''[=JoJo=]''-related rips tended to be either StylisticSuck or [[TakeThat insults directed at its fandom.]]* "Smooth" by Music/{{Santana}} started becoming used a ''lot'' more after [[ Bolero of Fire - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D]].* Rips from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'': Minion Rush feature one of the channel staff members in a Minion costume dancing along to a song playing through an unseen speaker.* [[ mm2wood]], poorly made MIDI of [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Wood Man's stage theme]], got a lot of use during and after the Halloween Special.* ''[[Creator/MikeMatei Minecraft with]] [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Gadget]]'' and the ''Inspector Gadget'' theme song have been used increasingly, to the point of causing a HostileShowTakeover in-universe.* Creator/NeilCicierega's mashups have become popular sources for rips since the "Smooth" gag gained traction, and the rips are usually so good it's leading some to guess if Neil is actually a secret member of the creative team.* Most rips from ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' will involve the Totino's song by Tim and Eric. (The joke is that Totino's was a sponsor of the ''Sonic'' 25th anniversary party panel at San Diego Comic-Con where ''Sonic Mania'' was announced.)* Burger King foot lettuce has shown up quite a bit as of February 2018.* The "Skinner & the Superintendent" theme (a part of the memetic "steamed hams" scene) from the "22 Short Films About Springfield" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has also become a minor gag on the channel.* The Lick (a [[ seven note melody]] referred to as a Running Gag among jazz musicians and spread to other genres) has often shown up in rips since late 2017.
