1* ArtistDisillusionment: Ryan had admitted by the start of 2019 that 2018 proved to be a taxing year for him as a content creator, to the point where he was seriously driven to consider quitting Youtube. As a result, he's opted instead to take a break for most of 2019, which saw the Off the Pill Podcast as his primary content for the time being.* ChannelHop: The "I Dare You" series started on his side channel [=HigaTV=], but its popularity led to it moving over to the main Nigahiga channel.* CreatorsFavoriteEpisode: He claims that "How to Be Emo" is his favorite out of the "How to be..." series. Doubles as a MagnumOpusDissonance considering that one has since been scrutinized for making light of serious subject matter.* DoingItForTheArt: Ryan's made it clear many times that he's doing his videos out of passion, hence why unlike most [=YouTubers=], he's still mostly just filming stuff at his house, in his neighborhood and editing with iMovie as said in NoBudget below as opposed to big studio spaces and offices. When his Instagram was hacked and deleted, he flat out admitted he wouldn't really care if his Website/YouTube channel got deleted as well since he'll just make a new one to make videos on.* NoBudget: Unlike many professional Website/YouTube stars, all his videos are done with just iMovie, a few items around the house, and a few other people. Yet he's got about 10 million subscribers and is well known throughout the internet. Heck, the videos that got them to fame were in fact amateur How-To videos that were put up on [=YouTube=] to show his friends!* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ** Ryan stated in "Immature Guys" that he was thinking of starting a gaming channel. It seems that these plans have fallen through, as Ryan has not made a gaming channel in the years since.** He was originally supposed to be the main character of the Nickelodeon series ''Series/SupahNinjas'', but he passed in order to concentrate on his [=YouTube=] stardom.
