Main Let's Plays
open/close all folders
- Chugga manages a 101 Power Bounce combo, the highest possible combo before the game cuts you off.
- After defeating General Guy, an event triggers that gets him double Star Points. His response certainly says so as well.
- Chugga takes down the Anti Guy Squad in Bowser's Castle, the hardest boss in the game.
- To finish the final fight with Bowser, Chugga's Running Gag of shouting "PK Starstorm!" when finishing off bosses is taken Up to Eleven when he summons Ness and has him finish Bowser off in style.
Super Mario RPG
- There's a Frog Coin that's only available at a specific point in the game. After missing it the first time, he plays the entire game over just to try again. He gets it on that second attempt.
- After chapter 5-1* , Chugga chewing out his fans for acting immature and raising hell about an artwork of Kumatora. It takes guts to tell off people on YouTube, especially your own fans, deserving it as much as they were.
- The finale, which includes voice acting for the characters.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
- Beating Macho Grubba without taking a single hit certainly counts.
- The back-to-back battles with Grodus and Bowser. For starters, his curse took effect after he beat Grodus and doubled the Star Points he got from the battle, putting his earnings right up there at 60+ (which is at least half a level for those of you not in the know). Then in the Bowser and Kammy fight, the curse struck again when he used a Power Bounce against Bowser, raising his attack power and pretty much demolishing Bowser's HP. On top of that, he risked not using a healing item when he had one HP left since he had spare Life Shrooms. Bowser's next attack missed him anyway. As he noted, if the curse took effect again and doubled his SP from THAT battle, it would've been the perfect run for him.
- After so long of being the Butt-Monkey, Spearow (later, Khold) managed to solo two separate Rocket Grunts. With Fury Attack, of all moves.
- During the fight against Gary in Cerulean City, Spearow almost managed to take out Pidgeotto without healing. He only didn't because Fury Attack doesn't have the best accuracy.
- On Gary's end, his Rattata pulled one off in the Hilarious Outtakes. He was the last Pokémon out, and was getting utterly destroyed by Ivysaur (Bulbapedia). At the last second, he got a Quick Attack in and landed a critical hit, costing Chugga the fight.
- On that take, Ivysaur almost took down Gary's entire team by himself.
- Spearow once again proving his worth by taking on most of the Pokémon on Nugget Bridge. He also would have evolved if Chugga didn't want him to learn Aerial Ace.
- The rival battle on the S.S. Anne starts going incredibly badly when both Spearow and Meowth (Meow Mix) end up K.O.'d by Gary's Raticate. Ivysaur then proceeded to clean up house and take on both Kadabra and Charmeleon (Potion-assisted for the latter, but still), defeating them both despite the major type disadvantage.
- Ivysaur's basically been sweeping the first three Gym Leaders, but his fight against Lt. Surge's Raichu deserves special mention. Despite a Double Team boost, Ivysaur manages to land every single hit.
- On a meta note, Meowth defeating Pikachu.
- Mimien the Mr. Mime quickly gains levels and manages to land a critical hit on a Pikachu. It was awesome enough to warrant him being called by name.
- Spearow finally learns Aerial Ace and one-shots an Oddish and a Pidgey with it right before evolving into Fearow. Bonus points for getting a critical hit on the latter, bypassing a Meowth's Growl entirely.
- Chugga managing to catch a Snorlax in a Poké Ball is pretty impressive, especially considering its catch rate of 25.
- Lapras (Tessie) taking down a Nidorino that's 12 levels higher than it via "Para-freakin'-fusion!"
- Later, she manages to take on the Karate Master's Hitmonlee without taking damage. She would have had no problem with Hitmonchan either, had he not paralyzed her with Thunder Punch.
- She then manages to take down Sabrina's Kadabra and Mr. Mime in short order.
- Chugga catching Articuno in two Ultra Balls; even he was surprised at how short that took.
- Apparently, something was bugging Chugga so much that he had to nerd out about it: that being, Electrode being unable to learn Surf.Electrode has a height of 3'11 and a weight of 146.8 lbs. Assuming that it is a shape of a perfect sphere in which its diameter times its height, one can easily calculate its density is 73.6 kilograms per cubic meter. As the density of water is 1,000 kilograms per meters cubed, it should be able to easily float on water carrying something as heavy as 2,000 lbs, but it can't learn Surf.
- As if catching Articuno so easily wasn't enough, his capturing Zapdos pretty much sparks a Running Gag.YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! Oh my god! After all 30 of my Ultra Balls failed, a Poké Ball caught it!
- Khold taking out three out of Blaine's Pokémon because he kept spamming Fire Blast the whole time. As a bonus, Khold only got hit once.
- Venusaur trying out his new Frenzy Plant on the Hypno in Berry Forest. Kick the Son of a Bitch, indeed!
- Lapras manages to sweep through every single member of Gary's pre-Victory Road team by herself, without healing. Too bad Charizard had to steal her thunder.
- RK9, Meow Mix, and Mimien working together to finish the job.
- During a Double Battle, RK9 takes a Superpower from a Nidoqueen. She survives with a sliver of health and finishes her opponent with a Fire Blast to the face.
- At the end of a laughably painful fight against Lorelei, Tessie wakes up from Jynx's Lovely Kiss and uses Surf. She then activates her Quick Claw and lands a second attack.
- Bulbapedia landing critical hits on both of Bruno's Onix, then a third crit on Machamp with Frenzy Plant. On that note, Mimien manages a crit on Hitmonchan.
- Mimien sweeping through 3/5 of Agatha's team, only getting switched out when he ran out of PP for Psychic. Followed by Meow Mix finishing off her second Gengar and utterly destroying her Haunter.
- It's no surprise that Tessie would be the trump card against Lance, but her taking two Ancient Powers from Aerodactyl is nothing short of impressive.
- Tessie gets another one during the Champion fight against Gary, taking out half of his team including Charizard, whom she actually tanked a Fire Blast from this time. She even got him to use up his Sitrus Berry! She could have even taken out Alakazam, had two Full Restores not been used.
- At the very least, it's followed up by RK9 finishing Alakazam with Double-Edge.
- Even though Meow Mix is Overshadowed by Awesome, he does at least manage to take out two of its own kind in the postgame without taking any damage.
- Mewtwo ended up getting caught due in part to an Onix's Dragon Breath!
- The Elite Four rematches end up giving at least a few of these.
- Against Lorelei, Mimien ended up swapping Magical Leaf for Thunder, using it to outright destroy Dewgong and Cloyster, then taking out Piloswine with two Psychics. Tessie then proceeds to force Jynx to switch out for Lorelei's own Lapras who destroys those two, before Meow Mix manages to finish the job.
- Both of Bruno's Steelix are beaten in one hit by RK9, Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee both go down very easily to Khold, and though Machamp gets a Rock Slide in, Khold hangs on and manages to finish it off.
- After a rocky start involving Agatha's Crobat, Tessie manages to fight off Misdreavus' Attract before taking down Arbok, followed by RK9 completely overpowering it.
- After Lance's Gyarados takes out both Tessie and Mimien, Bulbapedia hits twice with Frenzy Plant in the span of an entire round, takes a Hyper Beam with 6 HP left, and finishes it off with Razor Leaf. Meow Mix then destroys Kingdra with Toxic, long after fainting. A swift stall-healing session allows Tessie to wreck the rest of the team.
- Finally, the rematch against Gary. Khold starts off strong by destroying Heracross in one hit, followed by Bulbapedia defeating Tyranitar (after a misstep), Meow Mix getting Toxic and Screech on Alakazam so it can get taken out by a combination of Tessie, poison, and Sand Stream (Khold had a Negated Moment of Awesome), Exeggutor going down fairly easily, Mimien taking Gyarados out with Thunder, then having his remaining Pokémon bring Charizard down to Full Restore status. RK9 then hits it with a strong enough Extreme Speed to make it faint from Sandstorm with Bulbapedia out on the field. And before the finishing blow, Chugga calls Charizard out on the fact that his R/B/Y back sprite looks like a donkey!
Super Mario Sunshine
- Completing one of the hardest levels in only two attempts.
- When attempting to catch a Growlithe, Odairu the Totodile ends up taking it out via accidental critical hit. The next one he finds also takes a crit, with much less damage sustained. Apparently, he ended up becoming tanky enough to deliver a Curb-Stomp Battle to Bugsy's Scyther. Elemental RockPaperScissors or not, getting hit by a Scytler is like getting hit by a speeding car most of the time. The glorious moment is shown here.
- When dealing with Whitney, Phanpy (later, Darmani) manages to lower Miltank's accuracy well enough so that a direct hit ends up becoming a rarity. Odairu's evolution into Croconaw also ended up being the key to beating her.
- Phanpy, Odairu, and Roary each get one against the Kimono Girls, with Phanpy out-tanking an Umbreon and almost defeating an Espeon, Odairu beating down a Vaporeon, and Roary beating a Jolteon (though those last two were offscreen, mostly). There was also a Flareon in that sequence, but...
- Finding a Shiny Koffing. It was the first Koffing he found, literally a moment after saying he'd like to catch one, and it just happened to land on the minuscule 1 in 8192 chance to be a Shiny.
- Phanpy almost managed to beat Morty's Gengar via Rollout combo. It only didn't work because Gengar got lucky with Hypnosis.
- Odairu flooring Gengar after being revived.
- One for Vui the Eevee and Methane the shiny Koffing: Vui gets one for almost taking down Schoolboy Chad's Mr. Mime despite the massive stat disadvantage, and Methane for tanking its Confusion with 3 HP and finishing it with Sludge.
- The fight against Chuck has quite a few of these: Darmani (now evolved into Donphan in time for the fight) manages to take out Primeape and at least get a Mud-Slap on Poliwrath to lower its accuracy, followed by Methane surviving a Surf and using Poison Gas and Self-Destruct to bring it to low health, concluded with Vui avoiding a Dynamic Punch and allowing Poliwrath to faint from poison afterwards.
- The second attempt at catching the Lake of Rage's Gyarados results in it getting caught with a single Great Ball. Allegedly, the first recording had all the balls miss.
- Roary's first battle as an Arcanine involved a Koffing Self-Destructing on the first turn in fear, then one-shots a second Koffing! That is one Genre Savvy Koffing. Also doubles as a funny moment.
- Continuing the trend of amazing debut battles, Vui's very first fight as an Espeon involves him demolishing Ariana's Vileplume with Psybeam. Took a Level in Badass, anyone?
- Darmani taking on all of Archer's team and beating his Houndoom with only 6 HP remaining: just enough to use Flail.
- Catching Suicune in two balls, the last of which was a Poké Ball!
- Vui managing to take out Clair's Kingdra and second Dragonair. The former for powering through the most infamous boss after Whitney's Miltank, and the latter for dealing with an accuracy debuff and paralyzation.
- Odairu powering through 2/3 of Eyan's Pokémon by himself.
- Roary and Vui manage to completely thrash Koga's team while the latter only got to attack once.
- Volvagia the Dragonair defeating Bruno's Machamp and Hitmonlee while Vui was incapacitated. She manages to defeat the former without getting hit, and the latter is just barely taken out with an Extreme Speed.
- Methane tanking Karen's Umbreon despite lowered accuracy and confusion. It's then followed by him taking on Vileplume and delivering a Curb-Stomp Battle.
- The fight against Lance has quite a few of these, such as Odairu taking on Lance's Gyarados and utterly destroying two of Lance's Dragonite by freezing them with Ice Punch, Vui managing to get the third and strongest Dragonite into constantly hitting itself, and Volvagia hanging on with 10 HP and taking out Aerodactyl.
- Following up on awesome Snorlax catches, the Snorlax in Kanto is caught in a single Ultra Ball.
- In the fight against Brock, we get this bit against Kabutops:Well! Uh, you weaken me with Surf...and I'm going to weaken you with WHAT THE HECK, BOOM!
- Vui defeating Eyan's Alakazam with a single critical Shadow Ball, despite his less-than-stellar attack stat. There's also Methane taking Magneton out with a single Explosion despite it being a steel type with a respectable defense stat.
- More awesomeness from Vui: he manages to avoid two Blizzards from Misty's Lapras with 18 HP left, due to Chugga wanting to be ballsy and trying to finish it off with Bite.
- We all know it was inevitable due to Darmani being a ground type, but him soloing Lt. Surge's gym Bulbapedia style deserves a mention. He managed to utterly destroy the competition with Rollout combos, even powering through Double Team to do so, with the most damage taken being from a fricken Explosion!
- Catching Entei on the first Ultra Ball.
- He then manages to catch Ho-Oh in a Poké Ball like he did with Suicune.
- On a Gym Leader's side, Blue's Exeggutor hitting Vui with a Solar Beam strong enough to pierce through his special defense. It wasn't even a critical hit!
- Volvagia's evolution into Dragonite couldn't come soon enough! The final opponent of the entire playthrough was none other than Red's Charizard, whom she proceeded to have a pretty climactic final battle with, paralyzing it and hitting it with everything she had. With one final Extreme Speed, the playthrough was finished.
Super Luigi Galaxy
- Beating defeating Daredevil Bouldergeist on the first try.
- The thirty-minute finale has of November 12 2010 surpassed one million views (four million as of May 16, 2016), his third video with that many views (Super Mario Sunshine Episode 1 and Pikmin Episode 8 are the other LP videos to surpass 1 million... although there are actually several videos in his Super Mario Sunshine LP to surpass 1 million)
- The first time Chugga realized Steve's full potential was very cool after the time Steve spent being the Butt-Monkey.Chugga: Oh my god...Steve, you're a freakin' trooper! You were staying there, sacrificing your life, into the hours of the night...to carry back...a rotten corpse of a fire-breathing pig. I'll admit, I'm tearing up a little bit right now guys.
- Steve even gets his own Facebook page.
- The amount of research Chugga did for this project is certainly amazing.Chugga: Yeah, I went to a library for the first time in five-and-a-half years for this.
- He has stated how he hates Wollywogs from Pikmin. However, in this game, he kills every single one he finds without any Pikmin dying (at least so far, with the exception being in the Bulblax Kingdom where he was unaware of the Wollywog until it attacked). Every fight with a Wollywog has been a Moment of Awesome - especially the one where the Wollywog seemed to land on his Pikmin, but just barely missed. This streak was broken in Episode 25, but it's still awesome he made it that far.
- In the Submerged castle, twice, his Pikmin managed to avoid near death. Once (episode 26), a blue tripped in front of the Waterwraith. However, it wasn't killed. Chugga's reaction was enough to rival his original reaction to Steve. The second time (Episode 27), he was cornered against a wall. The Waterwraith was approaching. Then, the Waterwraith turns around, not killing any Pikmin. This then repeated again, in the same spot.
- Chugga defeating Man-At-Legs (basically a Arachnorb with a machine gun), while only losing 4 purples. Without using a Purple Spray.
- That he defeated the Man-at-Legs rematch in the Hole of Heroes, using only blue Pikmin, without using a Purple Spray, and without losing a SINGLE Pikmin... further CMOA.
- Finding not one, not two, but three purple potions at once after breaking open three eggs. Even better because he'd been talking about wanting to find purple potions for almost the entire thing.
- Steve makes one more appearance after the final battle, carrying Louie back to the ship.
- After suffering from Creator Backlash for so long regarding Steve, Chugga finally lets loose.Chugga: 'Troop', huh... Okay, fine! STEVE! There you go! Happy? I said it. It stopped being funny after the Pikmin 1 Let's Play, okay...okay, anyway...
- A real life one, the story of how Chugga got to live in his new house, which he tells in Episode 10. He got it by having his YouTube username coming up on YouTube search before Chuck Norris.
- In Episode 14, almost a minute in, Chugga rolled all the way to the entrance of Snowhead Temple in one freaking attempt.
- And in Episode 19, he did it again with the Goron race!
- During an episode of the Great Bay Temple, Chugga brings up how everybody seemed to hate Navi from Ocarina of Time. He then follows this up by defending Navi, big time, explaining why Link would actually want to find her. Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment.
- Normally in Majora's Mask, just putting the Giant's Mask on and curbstomping Twinmold's ass is cool. However, before (and during) the battle with Twinmold, Chugga is giving his theory of how Majora's Mask resembles the stages of Link's maturity and growing up note . This builds up to him reaching 'the last stage' and becoming a giant. The dramatic buildup and ensuing Curb-Stomp Battle (in his favour!) turns this into an awesome moment.
- Finally completing the Clock Town Archery game (he failed every attempt in his first round of attempts some episodes earlier) in the second round of attempts...in only two tries.YEAH! SECOND TRY! PERFECT! SUCK IT! SUCK IT! IF THERE WAS A TEABAG FUNCTION IN THIS GAME, I WOULD USE IT RIGHT NOW, SUCK IT! YEAH! It only took 20 of my Rupees net-wise! GIMME MY FRICKIN' PIECE OF HEART, I'M OUTTA HERE, SCREW YOU, GOOD DAY SIR! I'M WILLY WONKA!
- He not only defeated the final boss easily without using masks (the first time around), he got some Crowning Moments of Funny in there as well. And when he does it again using the Fierce Deity's Mask, he makes Majora look like a joke. How's that for Nightmare Retardant?
- His playthrough of all the boss fights using the Fierce Deity's Mask has gotten over one million views in only a month.
- In the very first episode, May manages something that Gary and Eyan couldn't: beating Emile on the first battle.
- His explanation of how Wurmple evolution is, in fact, random. Loads of Shown Their Work right there.
- Not too special in terms of game mechanics, but Moegami's evolution into Combusken happens after he beats the Aqua Grunt holding Peeko hostage. Translating something like that into the anime, it can come off as a Big Damn Heroes moment.
- Later in the same episode, Lombre (later, Kappa) almost manages to take out May's Torkoal despite the massive disadvantage.
- When Brawly's Makuhita has Chugga up aganist a wall with all but one Pokémon (Slavinator the Zigzagoon) defeated, he sends it out, not expecting much. The poison left behind by Acooltent (Tentacool) does the enemy in, giving that Pokémon the victory by not even doing anything. Slavinator grew four levels as a result of all the experience he gained! Doubles as a Funny Moment. Chugga claims it as his greatest battle ever.
- Acooltent gets hit by an electric attack from Wattson's Manectric and survives with only one HP left.
- From the same episode, Teddy (Vigoroth) survives a Self-Destruct from Voltorb with 4 HP. And she wasn't even at full health at the time, meaning she could take just as much punishment.
- TEDDY + Strength = One-Hit KO. Almost every time. And now that it's a Slaking with Hyper Beam...
- Altair the Swablu's debut battle involves him taking a Rock Slide without fainting.
- Acooltent once again surviving an attack with little HP. This time, from a Magma Grunt's Numel using Magnitude. He tanked an attack that he wasn't built for!
- Altair fighting a Climax Boss against Maxie's Zubat. It doesn't seem like much, but he's fighting Maxie's last Pokémon at the time, atop a volcano, and they're both Flying types meaning a High-Altitude Battle was a possibility. That, and they both put up a pretty spectacular fight.
- Acooltent taking a level in badass after learning Bubble Beam. He even got to finish off Flannery's Torkoal despite Sunny Day being active, and survived a Body Slam with 11 HP left.
- The fight against Norman has quite a few of these, including Moegami powering through confusion to defeat Spinda, and Teddy beating Vigoroth one-on-one. The crowner, however, happens to be against Slaking; both Acooltent and Altair managed to pull their own, the former making it hit itself after fainting, and the latter hanging on to finish it thanks to Steel Wing boosting his already somewhat beefy defense. If Linoone wasn't the only one left, Altair would have won the battle right then and there.
- Acooltent manages yet another "barely survived for a win" moment against a Machoke's Revenge.
- Chugga sends out Moegami in the Verdanturf battle tent. He's unable to use items to heal, his defense is lowered twice, he's under Wrap, and he's confused AND attracted... but he manages to take out his enemy with one hit from Double Kick.
- For the Fallarbor Town tent, Teddy sweeps the entire tournament on her own. At least, on the second attempt.
- An underrated one: after Chugga has Kappa use Fake Out on an Aqua Grunt's Zubat, it shrugs it off because Chugga forgot they have Inner Focus for their ability. It then uses Confuse Ray and utterly whales on him. One more Wing Attack would have beaten Kappa. At the last possible moment, he snaps out of confusion and defeats the Zubat with Ice beam.
- His battle with Winona. Every single Pokémon on Chugga's team (except Moegami) pitches in to claim an impressive victory. Heck, his Absol lands the final blow of the fight. The Absol he caught only one episode beforehand. Already cementing its place in the roster.
- Pandora, his Absol that is mentioned in the above entry, destroyed the first 2 Elite Four members. It took out all but 1 Pokémon of the first member, and all the Pokémon of the second one. Without taking damage. And then he manages to dole out an epic Take That! to all to people who were telling him Pandora didn't have a place on his team.
- He caught Groudon with A NEST BALL and Kyogre with a Net Ball.
- And then he does it again with Latias in ANOTHER NEST BALL. At FULL HEALTH.
- To those of you who don't understand why catching Latias and Groudon in Nest Balls is a reason to celebrate (and for Chuggaconroy's voice to go as high as it did): What exactly are the chances of it happening? Less than 1%.
- The epic battle with Steven at the end.
Super Paper Mario
- His first level up is to use Fire Burst on a whole bunch of Squiglets.
- Then a similar instance in Chapter 3, where he uses a lightning bolt to blast a bunch of Blomebas.
- Whenever he completes a chapter of this game, he shouted "YOU'VE GOT A PURE HEART!" in the same vein as "YOU'VE GOT A CRYSTAL STAR!", from three years beforehand. It just feels right.
- Him beating Shadoo and only getting hit ONCE. Plus, all he did to win was stand in a corner and use Bowser's Fire Breath constantly, while Shadoo kept running into it and hurting himself.
- How is this LP awesome? Ōkamiden is a Nintendo DS game, but he manages to record in high quality. How? He built his own recording device for the DS just to let's play ''Ōkamiden''.
- Getting a perfect score on King Fury. TWICE.
Kirbys Epic Yarn
- In Episode 5: Chugga listing off the massive number of games that use the desert as their second level/world."I mean, there's not that many examples. I mean, there's only Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Link to the Past, Paper Mario, Kirby 64, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Tooie, Sonic Adventure 2, Tales of Symphonia, Minish Cap, Twilight Princess, Sonic next-gen, New Super Mario Bros., New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, New Super Mario Bros. U, and of course, this game.
- In Episode 20, Chugga finishes one level with a massive streak of 592 beads.
- In Episode 7, Chugga finally enters a battle tournament. In it, the AI attacks Misdreavus with Normal-type moves, and doesn't use moves that would KO it. Chugga then decides to make Misdreavus a permanent member of his team.
- Episode 16 has the mother of all dick moves from an admin. On Dakim's side is Camerupt and his Shadow Entei, while Emile has Quagsire and Misdreavus out. Quagsire is about to use Surf to take advantage of Entei's large HP so it can be caught, while Misdreavus survives a Fire Blast and lands a Confuse Ray on Camerupt. Camerupt powers through it and uses Earthquake, which brings Entei to yellow health. Emile is baffled by the decision until Quagsire's turn comes up and he destroys Entei. After a Freak Out!, he then admits it was a smart move on Dakim's part.
- Taking on the Internet and winning with regards to Illumise's pronunciation. Doubles as a Funny Moment.
- After three failed captures of the previous Shadow Pokémon of the Bosses in Pokémon Colosseum, be it his laziness to get more Great Balls (Sudowoodo), Artificial Stupidity with a mix of Tempting Fate (Entei) or the Shadow Pokémon knocking itself out (Suicune)... Chugga FINALLY manages to capture the toughest of the Boss Pokémon bar the Final Boss' Shadow Pokémon: Raikou... and did it quickly with few used Ultra Balls to boot.
- After failing once to beat Miror B. off-camera, he tries again and initially it goes badly again, but he comes Back from the Brink with a clever use of tactics that even uses the "It doesn't affect Misdreavus" Running Gag.
- Chugga encountered a Shadow Delibird and had problems catching it after having little trouble with snagging legendaries from bosses. He was down to only a Poké Ball and managed to catch it successfully.
- That and he ordered his Forretress to use Explosion which surely would of KO'ed Delibird had the Poké Ball not succeeded.
- Catching Tropius at nearly full health with a Great Ball on the first try."Come on, I've gotten luckier than this in LPs! I've gotten Groudon at like full health in a Nest Ball! I can do this! I can do it! You guys gotta believe in me - *ball starts shaking* One! Two! THREE! *Tropius is caught* OH MY GOD!"
- This is later subverted in the 3rd bonus episode, when he points out that Tropius has a catch rate of 200, making it far easier to catch than the other Shadow Pokémon he's been facing.
- He's nervous about battling Nascour because Nascour has Pokémon in the mid-50's and Chugga has Lvl. 48-50 Pokémon. His Saikou and Corona take out three Pokémon (Walrein, Gardevoir, and Blaziken) in the fight alone. The other two (Xatu and Dusclops) are downed by Affection and Marshall. And he catches Nascour's Metagross in only three tries.
- His battle with Evice tops even the Nascour battle. Evice's Slowking manages to use Skill Swap and even before that Corona was beaten in one hit by Earthquake. Then when Salamence comes out Walnut poisons it and eventually uses Explosion to kill it when it's at near full health. Eventually it comes down to Marshall and Munchkin vs Evice's last two Pokémon and Munchkin goes down in one hit from Machamp. And when Marshall fails to defeat Machamp and a Reflect set up earlier in the match ends... Evice uses two X Attacks, which allows Marshall to take down Machamp and to finish the battle he catches Tyranitar in the Master Ball.
- It's even more amazing if you remember what he says about Marshall's pre-evolved form Wooper. "If you can smile like that and have no arms, you are truly a king among kings." Well Marshall the Quagsire truly is the king among kings for being the last one to stand against Evice's strongest Pokémon!
- Emile's first time beating Evice as a child. According to the story, it was his seventh attempt and both of them had one Pokémon left. He thought he was going to lose and was so frustrated he threw the controller at the wall. The A button was hit twice as it bounced onto the ground, resulting in a critical attack that finished Evice off.
Super Mario 64 DS
- The Interactive Menu Chugga made for his Super Mario 64 DS LP definitely qualifies under this. Bear in mind, this not only took Chugga a couple months to make, but during that time he still was recording stuff for Pokémon Colosseum, was going to conventions and working on the next Thrown Controllers panel, and getting ready to record footage for both Let's Plays going on right now. All this just shows how dedicated Chugga truly is to his work, and just how much he cares about his fanbase.
- His second bonus video has him beating NintendoCapriSun three times out of four rounds. NintendoCapriSun's one victory would also count.
Kid Icarus Uprising
- Chugga managing to survive Dark Pit's stage (Chapter 6) while in crisis mode.
- Beating the final chapter on 9.0 for the first time in his life. In Crisis Mode. On camera. On his first take. Without dying.
- Even the way he started this chapter is awesome (and doubles as Crowning Moment of Funny). He entered difficulty select screen with default level of 5.3 (on a 0.0-9.0 scale) and said that this is a fair challenge and he's glad that this isn't higher, since he's never beaten this level on max difficulty. And then...
- The fact that he managed to gather every single Kid Icarus: Uprising AR card save for two of them is pretty impressive.
- And now thanks to an anonymous source, he has now revealed the idols for the non-existent cards 405 and 411.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- The reveal at the end of Day 40. Chugga only accomplished half of his idea for the LP; as 2014 goes on, he'll return to Palette to showcase holidays. special visitors, etc. The first of the holidays is New Year's Day, meaning the very next day.
Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness
- Not exactly one for Chugga, but still significantly awesome. In the twenty-fifth episode, he battles Rider Willie, a Zigzagoon trainer who serves as a player's very first Orre opponent in Colosseum. Willie actually put up a good fight against the nigh-unbeatable Chugga, actually causing faints and averting the Running Gag of "Billy Bob takes one damage." Shows just how powerful he's gotten in the last five (in-universe) years.
- Gadzooks the Zangoose is the one to KO Ardos' Alakazam, the very same Alakazam that defeated it as a Shadow Pokémon.
- In the Finale of Pokémon XD, Chugga managed to snag 6 out of 7 of Greevil's Shadow Pokémon in one attempt. This includes Shadow Lugia, which he caught without the Master Ball. And the one he missed? Only due to an unlucky critical hit. Made even more amazing in that he didn't use a single Shadow Pokémon of his own, so he had to do that while all Greevil's attacks were Super Effective on his team.
"Ladies and gentlemen, my luck."
- And the one he didn't snag? In the rematch, he captures it with the FIRST BALL.
- He said that as a kid, he always snagged all 7 in one go, and wondered why anyone would think it was so hard.
- For his LP of Xenoblade Emile has tracked down thirty copies of this incredibly hard to find game, including four factory sealed copies, and will be giving them away to 30 lucky viewers.
- The very fact that he's actually Let's Play-ing this game, and going for 100% Completion like he usually does. From Part 1 he says he'll be showing every sidequest. Anyone who's played the game will know just how utterly massive that task is. Those who haven't are in for a treat.
- Also, his planning of absolutely everything down to the last detail. He replayed and recorded the game multiple times in advance to show off all the alternate quest options - which, as the above already states, is a massive task. Something even crazier is his rewatching of every cutscene beforehand to determine which weather was best for each, and he did that to preserve the best atmosphere portrayed by the story and setting. That is a ridiculously awesome amount of determination.
- For those not aware, weather in the game is 90% cosmetic, changes at its own whim, and the only way the player can influence it is messing with the in-universe game clock and hoping for the best. And the game considers 24 hours forward or back as no adjustment, so getting the time and the weather right to stage each cutscene must have been incredibly tedious at times. All just to give the views the best experience possible.
- The battle against the Glacier Acon in episode 52. Dunban did not have an Anti-Mechon weapon, meaning he could only deal damage when the Glacier Acon (which was a Mechon) was Toppled. To add to this, Chugga (playing as Reyn) got incapacitated before half a minute passed. But after getting revived, he still managed to win by doing a Chain Attack which let him attack 10 times in a row, inflicting huge damage and still leaving the Glacier Acon helpless after all of it was over.
- The battle against Disciple Lorithia in Episode 96 is truly a sight to behold. Not only does he take down one of the hardest story bosses with ease, he ends it with a Chain Attack and a triumphant (if, admittedly, vengeful) cry of "SUMMON BOLT!!".
- In episode 98, he has a hard time against Dragon King Alcar. All party members have very low health, Shulk is dead from spike damage, and a predicted fatal attack is going straight for Riki. In a clutch victory, Riki saves everyone by finishing it off with Freezinate and boldly proclaims "Riki protect future of sidekicks!". Chugga is left speechless.
- So, by episode 115, with the story wrapped up, every single sidequest in the world completed, and Colony 6 rebuilt, surely that's the end of the let's play, right? Wrong. Chugga posted episode 116, titled 'Forgotten Memories', as a rundown of all the 'glitch' items in the game, as well as showing off a whole Dummied Out section of the game (Bionis' shoulder). And he's still not even done! He talked on twitter and in the video about the fact that for his final episode, he wants to defeat every superboss, and show every single unique monster in the game, so that people playing the game themselves can find them easily. Chugga is AMAZINGLY dedicated to giving Xenoblade Chronicles a proper sendoff.
- To top it off, on the very last episode, he finishes all the Heart-To-Hearts, and reads aloud Monado: The Secret Files with accompanying visuals. Have we emphasized how dedicated this guy is yet?
- Him almost defeating Avalance Abassy with all of his members Talent Arts, then finishing it off with Backslash.
- And similar to his fight against Disciple Lorithia, he ends off the fight with a triumphant cry of "BACK SLASH!!"
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
- In his Let's Play of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, he managed to use Advanced Splash Bros to beat Queen Bean in only three turns! He was just as surprised as we were.
- In Episode 10 of the same game, Chugga managed to find and beat three Gold Beanies.
- In Episode 16, he defeated Cackletta before she could use her doppelganger attack, and in the same episode he took down Popple and Rookie before they could pull of a Bros. Attack!
- Episode 32: Emile has just barely enough coins to try for Secret Scroll #2, so he decides to be cheap and make a restore point. He didn't need to; he got it on his first attempt!
- Episode 33: Emile had been having issues with his capture card, so he wasn't able to record episodes as soon as he wanted to. The video that went up was his fourth recording attempt. Bear that in mind as you read this. He attempts the infamous surfing minigame trying to get the second-highest bean prize (two Hoo Beans and two Chuckle Beans) after getting the lowest (one Woo Bean) and third-highest (one Chuckle Bean). He doesn't get it. Instead, he beats the time for the top prize, the Casual Coral. The kicker? He had never gotten the Casual Coral before. After this, he ends up showing off light gravity and Advanced Thunder Bros (which he hadn't been able to for quite some time), and the battle ended with Luigi leveling up. Chugga said this was the game's way of patting him on the back for having to record the video four times.
- Day 15. Chugga managed to defeat the Quaggled Mireclops right as the 10 second timer appeared on screen.
- Chugga's first guest: Marriland.
- Marriland's return after Candice also qualifies as one, and also a CMoH when he starts praising Chugga's LPing skills.
- Both Cleffa and Golbat evolve in the same episode.
- In Episode 20, he finally get his first multiplayer victory. In a double battle against the cast of The Dex.
- After having a horrible debut upon evolving into Torterra due to Crasher Wake's Floatzel abusing Torterra's X4 weakness to Ice Fang, Chugga went into the post gym guest Shadypenguin. During their battle Bohdi made up in spade with a PERFECT 4-0 victory streak.Shady: Torterra's broken! Ban him!
- After all that bad luck Supernova has had the last few videos, Episode 38 is where it gets a major lucky streak:
- Getting Roar of Time on Metronome!
- Reaching LV 43 and learning Meteor Mash.
- In Episode 38, he lost the game audio due to a technical issue, similar to an incident in his MOTHER 3 LP. So what did he do this time? He edited in every single sound effect from soundtrack rips right down to the moves and the sound from bumping into a wall. He is THAT dedicated to making sure his viewers have the best experience.
- Episode 40 reveals a lot was with the help of Yoshiller. Still awesome though.
- Chugga successfully finds a Feebas in Episode 43. Yeah, the infamously rare Magikarp cousin. And he actually caught several, just to find one with a perfect nature!
- Chugga's Milotic makes her debut in Candice's battle in Episode 45. What's so awesome about it? Milotic was still at level 29, and she defeated a Piloswine, which was level 40!
- In the same battle: After getting screwed by bad luck in previous boss battles, Supernova gets to shine in this battle by one-shotting two of Candice's Pokémon.
- Supernova's Metronome became Frenzy Plant. Which was enough to defeat a Golbat.
- In one of the most epic finales to any fate-of-the-world-deciding battle, it looked like he had lost. Vanity, his last Pokémon (asides from Derpidius) had 55 HP left, and was moving last. His opponent's Crobat used Cross Poison... and Vanity survived with 4 HP. Keep in mind, Vanity was 4 levels lower than Crobat, who was using its insanely high attack stat with a STAB 70 power move (that had a high chance of critting). If that doesn't ensure a spot on his team, nothing does.
- In the very next episode, Chugga's infamous luck strikes again - this time, he captures Giratina, one of the most difficult Pokémon to catchnote , in a Heal Ball, which has the same chance of a successful catch as a regular Poké Ball. Just like with Groudon and Latias, the chances of pulling this off were less than 1%.
- The battle itself is one for Giratina; the legendary EARNS its fearful reputation by giving Chugga an absolutely epic battle, as a fitting finale to the main story arc of the game.
- After the aforementioned Giratina catch, Chugga reveals the sixth intended member of his team (barring the HM Slaves): Dusclops, eventually Dusknoir, a Pokémon he'd been praising for several Let's Plays. He then catches one with an ADAMANT nature, the BEST offensive nature that a Dusclops can have.
- Eidolon's showing against Volkner's Electivire: with the Will-O-Wisp to nerf his opponent's fully physical moveset and the bulk to take even a Thunderpunch, he would've had the battle won if Volkner hadn't used a Full Restore.
- And later Psythe tanking said burned Electivire's Giga Impact like a champ.
- Eidolon also shines in the battle against JWittz. JWittz has a Houndoom out with Flash Fire, so Eidolon can't use Will-O-Wisp or Fire Punch on it, but it also resists Ice Punch and Shadow Sneak. Chugga decides to take the loss to get a free switch for something better-equipped to face Houndoom, and uses Ice Punch... which freezes Houndoom solid for several turns. Houndoom does eventually thaw out and KO Eidolon, but it was left on almost no health, severely handicapping JWittz.
- Vanity absolutely destroys Bertha's team without breaking a sweat.
- Acrobat manages to survive Flint's Rapidash's Flare Blitz buffed by Sunny Day. With 10 HP.
- In episode 81, Emile goes on to catch Dialga and Palkia. After a rocky start with Dialga, Emile throws a Luxury Ball with Derpidius on the field. Then he goes onto Palkia, who Chugga catches in less than three minutes with a Heal Ball, the same as Giratina! Looks like Emile's luck has returned once more.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
- A minor, yet notable one in terms of production. The first time in the game that E. Gadd's calls are interrupted due to poor reception, Chugga wishes he could read it in the way it's displayed, saying that it'd have to be edited (taking a decent amount of time) to achieve the correct effect. For all subsequent instances of the Dual Scream's poor reception, Chugga takes the time to edit the audio of his reading to accomplish the broken sound.
- While it eventually ends in failure, his battle with the Shrewd Possessor goes on to the last playable second due to his early mistakes. Had he made the last shot, he would have beaten the boss within seconds of a game over.
- Doubling as Funny: Much to his surprise, he gets a perfect triple-star rank on mission E-3: A Train to Catch, despite wasting so much time sidetracking for collectibles. The best part is that it was most likely all the money he kept writing off as useless that saved his rank.
- Making it through the entire game without getting a single one star rank.
- The fact that he is going to do an in-depth guide on every weapon in the game. ALL 91 OF THEM. WITH OPTIMAL ABILITIES AND STRATEGY TO BOOT.
- Chugga's skill in the first level.
- Getting a double kill with a splat bomb in the first episode. Right after saying that the LP won't be high-level competitive play.
- In episode 8, nailing a multiplayer win by 0.1% thanks to well-placed Inkstrike in the last second.
- In episode 17, winning a match of Tower Control by one point after being killed within one second into overtime.
- Masae Anela guest stars in Episodes 19 and 20, and she proves to be almost scarily good at the game. Not only is she an S Rank, she gets insane kill counts per match. Their first Squad Battle in Episode 20 ends in a 0-100 Knockout!
- Chugga wins his team a Splat Zone battle that has been against them the whole time when he manages to take control and maintain it for the last few seconds of the game.
- In Episode 24, Chugga has no enthusiasm for playing the weapon of the day, the Luna Blaster, as he says he's a terrible player with said weapon. A potential guest for the weapon convinced him to play it himself due to his success with the blasters before, and sure enough, Chugga turns out to be pretty good with it.
- In an ironic twist of fate, he reaches S rank in Episode 26 while playing a weapon from his least favorite class (brushes) and on his least favorite stage (Moray Towers). Despite the heavy irony, it's still pretty awesome, due to his efforts in said battle.
- In Episode 27, during a turf war battle, Chugga accidentally jumps into an active Inkstrike. Because he's Born Lucky, the timing is so perfect that he takes no damage for it.
- In the same episode, he mentions his incompetence with Ink Mines, but he successfully splats two foes with them.
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
- More of a meta example, Chugga's discussion of the "L33T HAMM3R BROZ.", bringing up how such a meme reference these days would probably spark cries of "Treehouse needs to be burned in hot oil", but that at the time, this was legitimately considered one of the best parts of the game, even by people who didn't like the game. He goes on to say how the use of leet-speak is a perfectly valid way of localizing the original dialogue to show the Hammer Bros. are Not Themselves, points out how the use of memes in translations is older than most people think and that Japanese scripts reference Japanese memes all the time (which is true), which many fail to realize. Considering how much of a hot-button issue game localization became in The New '10s, saying this actually took some serious guts on Chugga's part.
- Much like Queen Bean from Superstar Saga, Emile managed to beat Bowser in three turns.
- Chuggaa made the first complete bean spot walkthrough in existence.
Pokémon Black and White
- Ottawa the Oshawott soloing most of the first part of the game (with the exception of Cilan's Pansage) up to the second rematch with Cheren. At that point, she manages to take out his Snivy with a critical Tackle, learn Razor Shell, and then evolve into Dewott in short order.
- Heck, just about everything about Ottawa is this; she's a female starter, which is incredibly rare, has a Docile nature meaning her stats won't be higher or lower, and she's landed plenty of crits in the beginning already, much to Emile's pleasant surprise.
- Fans crunched the numbers on Ottawa's stats. Pretty much all of her stats are at least good if not great, but the real star is her Special Attack IV: she has a 31 in that stat, which is the highest it can be. Lucky does not even begin to cover it.
- It doesn't stop there. She gets IV checked in Ep. 60, and not only is her Sp. Atk confirmed to have the 31, it's revealed her Atk stat also has the 31. A slouch she is not.
- Speaking of Pansage, 721st the Pansear gets one by winning a pretty close match against him. Despite the Elemental RockPaperScissors, Pansage was still four levels higher, and yet 721st still won. It was enough to earn Emile's respect, and even made him reconsider his nickname (specifically, to Salsa).
- Getting to K.O. Cheren's Snivy/Servine in four different matches with crits is nothing short of very good luck for Ottawa.
- The fourth one deserves special mention; Ottawa almost got taken out by a Leaf Tornado, and then proceeded to finish him with a Fury Cutter before Sandstorm took out its remaining health.
- Haywire the Blitzle had amazing luck with her match against Lenora's Herdier, scoring a flawless K.O. against it thanks to her paralysing it and it being too crippled from paralysis to fight back, and allowed Ottawa to get the win by knocking down Lenora's Watchog down to half health. To clarify how profound this moment is, Lenora is pretty much the Whitney of Black and White, and Chugga was suitably concerned, to the point that he spent most of the preceding episode catching a Throh to defeat her, which he didn't even need.
- Terrabite the Sandile soloing Bianca north of Castelia City thanks to its Moxie ability. It even took out Pansage and Pignite, both of which had a type advantage over it, and the latter was taken out by Sand Tomb of all moves.note
- Shortly after that, he proceeds to take down Cheren's Liepard and Panpour all by himself. He even took a Water Gun without any issue.
- He used Roc the Archen against Elesa just for the heck of it (keep in mind, Haywire and Terrabite had just recently evolved into Zebstrika and Krokorok respectively). And then he took out an Emolga with a critical Ancient Power and got an all-stat increase on the first turn. He then proceeded to beat her other two Pokémon in one turn each, with her strongest (Zebstrika) being hit with another critical. Compounding it further is that Roc was an unevolved Pokémon with the hindering Defeatist ability, going against an entire gym leader's team of which one was fully evolved, and they all had a type advantage over him. Suddenly, Ash's methods of winning don't seem too Farfetch'd.
- Haywire's first major battle as a Zebstrika involves her taking on Cheren's entire post-Nimbasa team by herself. As a bonus, her type combined with Flame Charge gave her an edge against 3/4 of his Pokémon. Definitely a welcome change of pace from her getting upstaged by her reptilian comrade.
- Before that, she took on Hiker Andy's Boldore and fared quite well against it.
- On Whitlea's end, GoldenPant the Scraggy carrying the Rotation Battle against Charles' team and getting the final blow on each Pokémon was pretty impressive.
- Ottawa's back in the spotlight with a bang. Soloing the entire Driftveil gym and one-shotting Clay's Krokorok aren't too surprising considering the type advantage, but she managed to take out the much faster and stronger Excadrill without taking any damage. Excadrill probably would have hit hard with its Hone Claws boosted moves, had Ottawa not blindsided it with her newly learned Aqua Jet.
- Haywire followed suit in Chargestone Cave, soloing N's team while taking out the majority of them with critical hits despite the fact that she wasn't carrying her usual Scope Lens to up her critical hit chance (instead going for the Lucky Egg to boost her experience).
- Ottawa finally evolves into Samurott (after being so close to leveling up the prior episode, too) by taking out a Boldore and having a close match with a Gurdurr. Watching a starter reach her final stage has never felt so good!
- Chugga then proceeds to show off Ottawa's newfound power by having her use Razor Shell on a Minccino!
- Hilbert the Trubbish's evolution into Garbodor may have come rather awkwardly, but at least his debut battle as such is a success. He easily tanks a Swoobat, which holds a type advantage over him, managing to do a great deal of damage with Sludge Bomb in the process. He may have been healed up, but the rest of the battle pretty much showed that was unnecessary.
- One for Cheren's team, of all things: after Chugga gets his Jet Badge, his Pokémon manage to take out Hilbert, Roc and Ottawa due to Chugga not accounting for stat differences, as well as the Hail condition and Cheren's choice of Hold Items. And as a fun case of irony, it's his Liepard that defeats Ottawa due to Chugga getting cocky about her speed stat, netting him the first clean victory against the water-type, followed by him staying standing against Terrabite for a surprisingly long time. Cheren really is growing as a trainer, after all.
- Before that even, Cheren apparently managed to defeat Burgh, Elesa and Skyla with a team that was horribly matched for said battles (half of his team would be especially weak to the former two, and the rest of his Pokémon would have had an unremarkable performance at best). Chugga himself lampshades this.
- He then manages to pull the same thing with Brycen and Iris. No wonder the guy becomes a Gym Leader in the sequel!
- When fighting Blair in Route 10, Cheren's Serperior swept through Chugga's team. Quite a leap from that Snivy that kept fainting from Ottawa's criticals, eh?
- Chugga catching Cobalion in only one attempt and three balls is nothing short of this, even if Chugga himself didn't feel the same way. It also finally gives Hilbert his well-needed spotlight for tanking such a strong Pokémon. And they didn't need Haywire to paralyze him!
- The artwork for the Sword of Justice in question, once again drawn by Masae Anela, is also pretty badass as it shows him bravely lighting the way in a dark cave like The Leader he is.
- He follows that up the next episode by catching Virizion with Necessity, a Tranquill, out on the field.
- He catches the third and final member of the trio, Terrakion, just as easily. In fact, the only reason it took him two tries was because Ottawa defeated Terrakion in one shot.
- Hilbert fights yet another Swoobat by virtue of being sent out by accident. He utterly destroys it with a critical Sludge Bomb.
- This moment is a twofold one. Chugga decided to explore Twist Mountain to get a Cryogonal, a Metal Slime with only a 3% chance of appearing, for his sixth slot. Within five encounters, he ran into it; this is the first awesome moment. The second one is that the Cryogonal put up much more of a fight than most of the Olympus Mons.
- Another awesome moment comes against Brycen, where the Cryogonal (now named Hex) takes a critical Slash from his Beartic with only 6 HP before being able to take it down. Keep in mind that Cryogonal as a species has utterly terrible defense, and yet he still took it. Also counts as a moment for the Cubchoo line due to almost getting a victory on one of Emile's Pokémon.
- Hilbert almost managed to beat Bianca's Musharna due to the Stockpiles set up earlier. We say almost because Bianca used a Full Restore on it and forced a switch to Terrabite.
- Thankfully, he managed a moment by curb-stomping Biker Morgan's Bouffalant, which Emile himself admitted was quite a strong Pokémon.
- When Emile defeats the Black Empoleon gang, he leads with Hilbert, causing the gang to rename themselves the "Black Garbodor". While this is more funny than anything else, Emile portrays it in-universe as Hilbert becoming the leader of the gang. Not bad for a literal pile of trash.
- The fight against Iris is pretty chock-full of these moments from just about every member of the team involved (except for Terrabite, sadly), truly showing Emile's team synergy that he built up so much in past episodes.
- Roc starts off hitting Fraxure pretty dang hard with his newly learned U-Turn to make a switch.
- Hilbert manages to defeat Fraxure with a Sludge Bomb because it chose to try and buff up with Dragon Dance. He even tanks a few hits from Druddigon and poisons it before Dragon Tail forces a switch to Ottawa.
- Even though Iris uses a Hyper Potion on Druddigon, Ottawa manages to two-shot it with a poison-assisted Megahorn. She then does a good deal of damage before Dragon Tail forces a switch out to Haywire.
- Haywire doesn't get much in, but she does manage to paralyze Haxorus with Thunder Wave and at least get a Charge Beam in before getting knocked out.
- Finally, Hex is sent out. Despite his nature crippling his special attack, and Iris using another Hyper Potion, Hex manages to take Haxorus out with a single Ice Beam. Even if it didn't one-shot, Haxorus' paralyzed status would have made it a sitting duck anyway.
- Meanwhile in Black, " :( " the LV 43 female Beartic swept Drayden's entire team with Icicle Crash, raising Emile's opinion of the family a bit.
- Shauntal of the Elite Four gets one for actually putting up a decent fight against Emile's team due to her Pokémon barely surviving hits from them. This is all in spite of Emile having a pretty good strategy against her. Bonus points go to Cofagrigus surviving a Flying Gem-boosted Acrobatics from Roc and using Will-O-Wisp to keep Emile busy long enough for a Full Restore, and Chandelure outspeeding Ottawa and taking her out with a critical Shadow Ball. She's more than worthy of her title after that.
- Before that, Terrabite managing to beat down all of Caitlin's team even when Sigilyph hit him with an Ice Beam.
- Grimsley's Bisharp gets one for delivering a Curb-Stomp Battle to Hilbert and Haywire, the latter especially due to surviving a critical hit with low health.
CHIP DAMAGE, MY ASS!
- Shortly after, Ottawa misses a Megahorn on Krookodile and gets knocked to 13 HP. With no other option, Emile has Ottawa go for Aqua Jet for chip damage...which then proceeds to OHKO Krookodile with a crit.
- Marshal gets a near-cinematic moment at the end of his fight. With only a badly poisoned Mienshao left, he declares that this could be the last move and that he'll put everything into it. Emile jokes that Haywire will probably take Mienshao out with one hit, only for Mienshao to survive on a sliver and OHKO Haywire with a non-critical Jump Kick before succumbing to the poison, thus denying Emile's team the experience for defeating it.
- The entire final battles with N and Ghetsis. These need to be seen to be believed, but for a recap, here's the outcome:
- To start off, Zekrom becomes the temporary replacement for Haywire and manages to deliver a downright brutal beat-down to Reshiram. Hex then manages to at least whittle down Vanilluxe enough for Terrabite to finish it with Brick Break, who then proceeds to sweep the floor with the rest of N's team up to Archeops. At that point, Roc is able to just destroy it with a Rock Slide.
- Ghetsis, meanwhile, can't just be described in one paragraph; his fight needs an entire damn step-by-step procedure as both sides have just as much advantages as they have disadvantages. Emile even says it's the most intense final battle he's ever had.
- To start, Emile learns from his fight with Shauntal and goes to Terrabite instead of Roc, using the STAB Crunch to take out Cofagrigus and use up one of Ghetsis' Full Restores.
- Ghetsis then immediately goes to HYDREIGON and destroys Terrabite right away. Hex is sent out, leading to Hydreigon using Fire Blast to take him down, which Hex survives albeit with a burn. Before Hex goes down, he sets up a Light Screen which proves essential to Zekrom taking it out with Dragon Breath. On top of that, he gets Paralysis which allows him to out-speed Hydreigon.
- Bouffalant proves to be more than a fair challenge, even though he's eventually defeated via a combination of recoil and Hilbert's Rocky Helmet. When Hilbert is sent out for Roc with Emile thinking he would shoot for Earthquake, Ghetsis predicts the switch and uses Wild Charge to take Roc out in one go.
- Seismitoad then takes out Hilbert, leaving only Ottawa and Zekrom left. Seismitoad proves to be faster and just barely strong enough to possibly two-shot Ottawa. In a bit of a double-edged sword, Seismitoad uses Rain Dance which powers up both parties' moves. Ottawa barely hangs on from an Earthquake, long enough for Emile to heal up. Thankfully, Seismitoad uses Muddy Water which enables Ottawa to get the victory.
- Eelektross is sent out, prompting Emile to heal Zekrom who proceeds to finally destroy both of Ghetsis' last Pokémon through a long and harrowing process. Zekrom barely proves stronger and bulkier than Eelektross and Bisharp, fittingly ending with the Dragon of Ideals indeed being the final hero of the story.
- Chugga catching Volcarona in one Quick Ball.
- Terrabite managed to defeat five members of a difficult post-game team of six all by himself in Challenge Cave that overleveled him by more than five levels each while very narrowly avoiding fainting twice.
- Chugga continuing the chain of anticlimactic legendary captures by catching Kyurem in three balls. Bonus points for Haywire paralyzing it and getting quite a few Thunderbolts in before being one-shot by Dragon Pulse.
- Even then, it was only slightly. Kyurem still managed to K.O. two of Chugga's Pokémon before going quietly.
- Even though his first fight against Cynthia was a Curb-Stomp Battle on her end, Hilbert managed to beat Cynthia's Eelektross without attacking at all due to a combination of recoil damage from Wild Charge, Hilbert's Rocky Helmet, and healing him at every turn.
- Landorus has the dubious honor of being the fifth Legendary Pokémon to be caught in very few balls. The count this time is five. Even though it took out Ottawa, it got caught in an Ultra Ball the minute Terrabite was sent out.Chugga: WHAT IS MY LUCK!? That was the last Legendary Pokémon for us to fight in all of Unova! And I made it look like a joke!
- Because of this, Victini and Tornadus ended up giving the biggest fights out of all the legendaries/mythicals in the entire run, due to the others either being caught in very few balls (Cobalion, Virizion, Terrakion, Kyurem, Landorus), being event exclusive (Meloetta, Keldeo, Genesect), being caught in a Master Ball (Thundurus), or practically given to you in-story (Zekrom/Reshiram).
- As a bonus, that means Tornadus officially put up a better fight than the leader of the Forces of Nature/Kami trio/Genies!
- Back in Black, :( the Beartic, now named :), ends up powering through a Purugly's Swagger-induced confusion and hitting it with a boosted Superpower. As a bonus, she snaps out of it right away to at least do some damage to an Espeon. Jaya the Serperior then follows that up by walling a Lapras and Leaf Blading it into fainting.
- Salsa went from underwhelming fire monkey to the star of Pokémon Musicals all over Unova, proceeding to earn every regular prop in the entire game. Not bad for the least popular Pokémon species in existence.
- Against Shigeki Morimoto, Hilbert went max Stockpile and managed to take out Liepard, get another victory on a Swoobat, then narrowly avoid Giga Impact to whittle Zebstrika down with Explosion. Ottawa then adds insult to injury by taking it out with Aqua Jet, followed by surviving an Energy Ball from Simisage with 5 HP and OHKO'ing it with Megahorn.
- Roc then proceeded to save the team from the Simipour from Hell before finishing Simisear with Rock Slide.
- The final bout against Cheren involves yet another session of Hilbert walling Liepard, followed by him doing chip damage on Gigalith for Terrabite to finish it off.
- After that, Serperior buffs himself right up with Coil and survives an Aerial Ace from Terrabite. He then hits with Leaf Storm, which almost mirrors the encounter on Route 10...except Terrabite survives with 3 HP and averts that fate!
- After Haywire takes out Simipour, Cheren is quick to send out Haxorus, his new Trump card. However, Haywire manages to pull the same trick she did against Iris' Haxorus by paralyzing it and allowing Hex to defeat it and Unfezant with Ice Beam.
- During the Elite Four rematch, Ottawa manages to sweep 5/6 of Grimsley's team by getting a Swords Dance buff and then taking everyone out in 1-2 Waterfalls each. She even takes a Thunder Fang from Drapion while only taking 80 damage (about 1/3 of her health)!
- On Marshall's end (yet again), Terrabite had just swept through Sawk and Mienshao and gained two Moxie boosts. The next Pokémon sent out is Throh, whom Terrabite hits with Earthquake. Throh barely holds on and destroys him with an unexpected Superpower. Doesn't stop the rest of the fight from being a Curb-Stomp Battle in Emile's favor, but give the man points for effort!
- Against Caitlin, Terrabite sweeps her entire team. There is one scary moment where her Sigilyph freezes Terrabite.... only for him to instantly thaw and continue on the attack! He even does the same to every member of Shauntal's team except for Cofagrigus, surviving an attack from Froslass with 10 HP!
- Even if Emile lost against Alder the first round, it did have some genuinely awesome moments. Hex takes out Accelgor, Escavalier. and Druddigon, Ottawa defeats Volcarona in one hit with Waterfall, and Hilbert manages to successfully take Bouffalant down with him. Even Alder gets a moment when Volcarona takes out Roc in one hit with a crit Overheat.
- In the final battle against Cynthia, after several Swords Dance boosts and healings her burn, Ottawa manages to sweep all 6 of Cynthia's Pokémon while having much damage inflicted on her. Ottawa was born lucky indeed.
- Spiritomb, Garchomp, and Milotic deserve special mention: the first one set up three Double Teams which Ottawa practically ignored entirely, the second attacked with Dragon Rush and missed, and the third used Bulldoze which barely did anything to her! Lucario was the one who did the most damage, but only as a result of using Aura Sphere. Eelektross and Braviary never even got to attack once. Ottawa made Cynthia's team look like a joke!
- Episode 22 is awesome the whole way through. Emile shows off the famous "tent glitch" with fantastic and hilarious results.
- Episode 27 - Chugga fights a Musica while explaining that they have a 1/128 chance of dropping a Sudden Guts Pill. He immediately gets the drop on the first try. His reaction is appropriately loud.
- Episode 28 - Emulating Pokey's dad, Emile busts out a perfect, disturbingly realistic maniacal laugh. The coughing at the end is not only genuine, but began EXACTLY when Pokey's dad started coughing! It must be heard to be believed.
- Chugga manages to get Poo's only weapon after fighting 16 Starmen Super.
- The best part about this is that of those 16 Starmen Super, 15 of them were fought by going through the dungeon proper, rather than actively grinding them. The 16th Starman Super is the only one he actively grinded, and that was the one to drop the Sword.
- Episode 52: one of the few enemies he fights is the Chomposaur. It has a 1/128 chance of dropping the Magic Fry Pan, a weapon for Paula. He gets it on that one fight!
- To further this, he next gets into a fight with a second Chomposaur. He gets the Magic Fry Pans again! He revealed through his Twitter and Facebook pages that this occurrence legitimately caused him to lose his voice and sidelined him from recording for a few days. He states later on that this is a much lower chance than finding a Shiny Pokémon.
- To put it in perspective: the chance of finding a Shiny Pokémon in Gens 2-5 is 1/8192, or 0.01220703%. The chance of finding a Shiny Pokémon in Gens 6 and 7 is 1/4096, or 0.02441406%. The chance of finding 2 Magic Fry Pans in a row is 1/16,384, or 0.00610352%.
Yoshi's Woolly World
- Chugga's complete Motor Mouth listing of the many, many snafus Nintendo of America has made with providing games, systems, and programs to the US compared to other regions in Episode 13.
- To emphasize, the rant takes a couple minutes even with his fast pace, and he's able to rattle off a ton of examples with what can only be assumed is no rehearsal but a lot of passion on the topic.
- Chugga manages to get the 2000-point prize in the archery minigame on his first try, after explaining how he quit playing the game during his first playthrough after spending 5 hours on it.Chugga: F U LAST SELF, YOU SUCK! ONE TRY, EAT IT!
- In Episode 29, Chugga's now-revealed Clock King plan pays off: He's made sure to buy enough Beedle's Shop Ship items to qualify for the Silver Membership and its Freebie Card... just in time to use the latter for the now-available Golden Cannon (one of the Infinity +1 Sword Ship Parts).
- Beating the infamous Copycat minigame on the first try, even though he didn't mean to. Bonus points for said minigame being required to bring Crono back to life later; Chugga's luck just saved Crono!
- In Episode 13, Chugga reveals what he meant by this LP having a new format—explicitly showcasing every ending in one neat mechanic that creatively utilizes the newer annotations function of YouTube. Not only is the fact he was able to do this in an intuitive fashion impressive as is, not only is this also an impressive showcase of every ending, but he did this in spite of the newer YouTube annotation system, which he has shown distaste for in the past.
- Chuggaa, somehow, made sure that the 'Kill Lavos' button would disappear when it was revealed that the gate key was stolen by the lizards. He does it again at Zeal's Palace after enhancing Marle's pendant.
- He hides it again for the final ending (not counting the main endings post Ocean Palace/Blackbird) due to it spoiling a plot point of the Zeal storyline. Although the ending wouldn't be accessible at the point the spoiler is naturally revealed, he's still able to return the button before the episode ends and remove it at the start of the next.
- In Episode 31, Chugga finally snaps at the AD 1000 Chancellor, and tears him a new one—rightfully so given the circumstances.Chugga: YOU ARE COMPLETELY AWFUL! It's one thing to frame me [Crono] for a crime I didn't commit, and have a child executed for it! But, EXCUSE ME! Agh...[after the sequence where Marle is disowned from the royal family]Chancellor: Oh dear...Chugga: Freaking... you never get your comeuppance! He's actually worse than the chancellor who was a demon in disguise! That's impressive!
- A meta one: the very first video Chugga uploaded was an example of the sort of low-quality blurry camcorder LP that Retsupurae like to mock. He went from that to being one of the most popular LP'ers on YouTube.
- He, ProtonJon, and NintendoCapriSun have created a collaborative LP channel called The Runaway Guys.
- Chuggaaconroy getting a Shout-Out from Charles Martinet, Mario's voice actor!
- Chugga has captured 5 legendaries (Zapdos, Suicune, Ho-Oh, Regice and Registeel)...with Poké Balls (as well as Regirock with a Premier Ball, Groudon and Latias in Nest Balls, and Giratina in a Heal Ball, all of which have the same catch rate as a Poké Ball).
- This is a Twitter one, but someone who stopped following him because he was a brony that said:"I prefer not to be following bronies they're the cancer of the world. Hear that @chuggaaconroy fuck you and your brony club."
- In response, he said this:
- A subtle one concerns his April Fools' Day Mega Man 2 parody LP, in which Chugga plays up to the first Wily stage before running out of lives and then casually ragequitting as part of the Stylistic Suck. Why is this awesome? Because just a few months earlier, he had never played any Mega Man game before, posted a video of him getting repeatedly killed almost instantly when playing one for the first time, and has stated that in general he's not good at 2D platformers.
- It gets better: he got through the infamous Quick Man lasers on his first try.
- StephenPlays got one when he managed to defeat Chugga at Pikmin 2's Versus mode, after an earlier video had demonstrated that Chugga was a far superior player of the game in general.
- His Super Smash Bros. Brawl matches with BrainScratch Commentaries. In addition to winning both of them (At least in the linked video) via PK Starstorm, there was a moment where Ryan hit Chugga with a Timer powerup and sent him flying near the edge of the screen. Instead of Chugga being KO'd and the match being ended, Ryan was the one who died due to the platform changing and Chugga remained alive in the air due to his ridiculous luck.
- Right on the last episode of Mario Party 2 Mystery Land, Luigi, by some ungodly luck, gets TWO MORE STARS from hidden blocks, giving him a very firm lead of five stars. This chain of events made Chugga and Masae worry about who's getting second place, believing that there's no way they're taking first. In true Chugga luck magic, he gets a dice roll he wants to put him at 3 stars, and pocketing two more bonus stars to give him the star tie with Luigi, and netting him the win by coin tie.
- After 7 years on YouTube, Chuggaa finally hit a million subscribers September of 2015. Talk about a long time coming.
- Emile is followed on Twitter by Arin Hanson, Tara Strong, and Reggie Fils-Aime.
- One of his tweets even got a reply from Pat Sajak himself!
- The sheer fact that Emile went memetic in the B/W playthrough just by being his usual goofy self.
- The fact his very channel has lasted ten years and is still going strong is a very impressive feat in itself.
- Emile being one of the few Let's Players to have their own Wikipedia page.
- He even has his own wiki site now.
