Awesome / PewDiePie

Go To

PewDiePie is, long story short, a very quirky guy, but there are some moments where he can channel his humorous tendencies or drop them altogether to bring some truly awesome moments to the table.

    Pewdie's Videos 
  • Him managing to get the Slenderman, of all people, to stand still (well, more or less stuck behind a car) and then proceeds to film his balls for a few seconds before he disappeared.
  • PewDiePie and UberHaxorNova note  played Worms together. The idea alone is awesome, and Hilarity Ensues.
  • When Pewds is playing Sonic.exe and Robotnik's level cuts to static, he keeps repeating "Don't come out of the screen, Sonic...". When he finally does come out of the screen (The "I am God" picture), Pewdie doesn't so much as freak out, just giving the picture a solid look and then going: "Okay, I mean, Sonic, you're not that beautiful. Let's be honest." For a guy who has been notoriously known screaming at these sorts of things, it's awesome for him to learn from his past and adapt accordingly.
  • During his Dark Souls playthrough he managed to beat the Iron Golem without Tarkus (for context, this boss is considered ridiculously hard, if not nigh-impossible, to beat unless you get an ally spirit named Tarkus to help you). Even Pewds is surprised and he spends the next minute celebrating.
    "Praise the sun!"
  • After fourteen episodes of trials and tribulations, he beat Dark Souls.
    • For bonus points, early on he summons other players to help in a boss fight, despite being unaware of exactly how the summoning mechanic works. When he realizes that the other players did most of the work for him, he deems summoning to be a cheap, cheaty tactic and goes solo from then on.
  • Him having the opportunity to play South Park: The Stick of Truth several weeks before it hit stores.
  • In one of his Outlast videos, there's a scenario in which Pewdie accidentally comes out of his hiding locker. He quickly hides in the one next to it. Three guesses which locker the enemy checks.
  • In one of his Pewds Does Everything videos, he smacks his butt with a banana, and when he notices the camera he awkwardly throws the banana backwards. It then lands perfectly on the table behind him.
  • In one of his Trouble in Terrorist Town videos, he jumps off of a building and ends up landing on CaptainSparklez. The round ends, as CaptainSparklez was the traitor the entire time and Pewds had killed the traitor without any intention.
  • He once chopped off the head of someone running at him in-game...while flying out his chair in fright.
  • His guitar cover of "Let It Go" replacing the lyrics with how tired he is of the song's excessive popularity.
  • One of his Q&A questions asked "What is this?"
    Pewdie: Oh, I'll tell you what it is. 2 fab 4 u!
  • Pewds recently started his Dark Souls 2 LP and has been having a great deal of trouble with it. It wasn't until someone pointed out that he was in the Champions Covenant that his problems made sense. After looking up what it does and realizing it makes the game about twice as hard Pewds decided to stick with it.
    • In his latest video he fought the Iron King. For those not in the know this is That One Boss for a lot of people. Pewds defeated it, while still part of the Champions Covenant and while using only melee (the hardest method of fighting it) apparently on the first try.
  • In the Squish Oculus Rift video, while the walls are closing in Pewdie begs to the game that he'll do anything to get out. Suddenly, the walls stop just as he's saying it. When Pewdie changes his mind, the walls actually continue closing in.
    • He wasn't doing this on purpose. There's actually a disclaimer that says he didn't even know what to expect.
  • His Trouble in Terrorist Town strategy initially consists of grieving by trying to gun everyone down instantly regardless of whether or not he's innocent, causing much stress on his mates. But, in "PLEASE GIVE ME A LARGER PENIS", he manages to act in a way to provoke the other people to kill each other off so that it's just him and Ken. TWICE. Much to everyone's surprise, he then hunts down Ken. One of his best moment is the second time he was the traitor in that video in which Ken was stuck on the wall (due to glitch) and all he has to do is kill both Cry ( who was suspected being a traitor by throwing grenades) and Minx ( who suspect Cry is the traitor) without both of them shooting him out of retaliation. In both times he's the traitor, he wins in that video.
  • The quick kiss Pewdie and Marzia share in part 6 of his Fahrenheit LP. It's fast, but it's still there.
  • While Pewdie plays a parking simulator game called PAKO, he is driving a vehicle that is being chased by the police (also, if you crash into any other car, you die). He makes a U-turn at the end of the confined space that he's in, and the police car speeds past him, missing him by centimeters. Even Pewds is happily surprised.
  • At 5 AM on night 2 in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, he ends up using all of his flashlight power (the flashlight is rather helpful in allowing you to monitor the animatronics), so BB (which stands for Balloon Bitch, if Pewds is to be believed) appears and starts laughing at him, much to Pewdie's chagrin. He puts on the Freddy mask and sits there helpless, waiting for some animatronic to finish him off. After some time Foxy shows up and begins to lunge at Pewdie, but he makes it to 6 AM before Foxy can kill him. If you couldn't already tell, Pewds was very surprised by this. "Praise the sun" indeed. He even picks up and celebrates with Edgar, who appears to have absolutely no idea what's going on but doesn't care anyway.
    • On another night, the same thing happened—BB held him captive, and he still made it to 6 AM.
  • In his first Far Cry 4 video, he manages to kill a tiger just before it can kill him.
    • Taking out another tiger with one well-placed and well-fired arrow counts as well.
  • The entirety of his Five Nights at Freddy's 3 LP. By now, Pewdie's become Genre Savvy from his experiences playing the past two games. He brushes off jumpscares with an unamused remark or a clearly faked scream, frequently talks about how unscary the game is, and he actually completes all five nights in only two videos.
  • In part 2 of his The Impossible Quiz playthrough, he gets lost on question 62 and decides to do a Swedish version of "eeny meeny miney moe" to pick his answer. He gets it right.
  • In THE YOUTUBER GAMES, Felix starts rooting for Marzia after he dies. Marzia wins.
  • In EXPLODING NIPPLES (an episode), Pewdie manages to get to the top of the server leaderboard before abruptly being eaten.
  • Five Nights at Freddy's 4. Didn't even get scared at the game overs and in fact spent more time complementing lamps than anything else.
  • Considering the fact that Pewds is almost disillusioned with the same formula for horror games to the point that nothing almost scares him anymore with horror, this game managed to impress him so much that he had nothing but praise for it, despite having a very cute title.
  • On his seventh attempt of Player Unknowns Battlegrounds, he wins solo.
  • He's Back on memory lane ladies and gentlemen!
  • After eight episodes of failure and pain, Felix finally managed to get over it.
  • Pewds managed to achieve many things in his Minecraft let's play:
    • His first real landmark, IKEA Tower.
    • His rescue mission for Sven. Doubles as Heartwarming Moments.
    • Later, creating a suprisingly well-done doghouse with traditional Japanese architecture for Sven, complete with storage space and utilities.
    • Discovering a Water Temple, wiping the floor against the vast army of mobs inside, and looting the sponges. He also finds another Water Temple nearby and drains it to make it a functioning underwater base.
    • Then, raiding the dreaded Woodland Mansion alongside Sven. Both of them survive.
    • Last but not least, building a giant meatball structure, complete with a working, albeit complicated and unfurnished redstone elevator, all to honor the late Water Sheep.
    • When the 9-year olds mention that his statue of Joergen II looks more like someone riding a Kangaroo, Pewds rebuilds it to more accurately portray a knight and his mighty steed.
    • For his short lifespan and service, Bernie the Donkey did a good job protecting one of the villages from a bandit raid with Pewds, sacrificing himself for everyone's sake.
    • The birth of the Peepeepoopoo army and the slaying of the Wither.
      • After receiving the enchantment required for a trident to turn them into Zombie Pigmen, Pewds is hellbent on summoning the Wither near his house, a very risky move, but one he deftly navigates.
      • Realizing that the Pigmen heal the Wither, Pewds lures the Wither outside of the ranch by himself, forcing him to go in and out of melee, and wins. The best part? The Wither dies right in front of a bust of Water Sheep he built, as if the Water Sheep guaranteed for his victory.
      • With the Nether Star in hand, Pewds renovates and repurposes the IKEA Tower into a Beacon... by removing all his pets’ graves and uses all the Gold, Diamond, and Emerald blocks to build the Pet Trinity. The result is a memorial of the trio that can be seen across the skies, a reminder of how far they have come and the sacrifices they made for it. There are no end credits, nor an ad for Tuber Simulator this time around, only silence.
    • After his first humiliating defeat in the End, Pewds uses his Minecraft Veteran knowledge and experience to go against the Ender Dragon using unconventional means such as boats and beds, exploiting all of his experience throughout the let's play via various means, including 'kidnapping' the Endermen with boats to prevent them from moving, and baiting, then killing off the Ender Dragon by attempting to sleep, which triggers explosions almost as powerful as End Crystal themselves.
  • Felix plays Terraria for the first time ever, and says that "Dude, I'm good at this game. It's almost like I AM a veteran, even though I am NOT a veteran, you know what I'm saying?"
  • During one of his recent Among Us livestream, PewDiePie gets Impostor with Corpse, three consecutive time. However, the icing on the cake? Playing Impostor with MrBeast. And the game ended with neither of them being voted off! This is the reason why Pewds calls that particular moment "The Ultimate Among Us Impostor Duo".



How well does it match the trope?
