  • "Trailer Theme (In-Game Mix) - Sonic Mania". As one of the final rips after the channel ended, it features 7 Grand Dad Mania, a remastered version of the original 7 Grand Dad with new levels filled to the brim with SiIvaGunner references, including Triple-Q, Coconut Gun, Lore, Fortran, and Puzzle Room, as well as the ability to play as Loud Nigra and Nozomi.
  • The SIIvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis. After the end of the Wood Man saga, fans of the channel got this video which has quite a few awesome moments.
    • The return of The Voice Inside Your Head, where he proves himself as a No-Nonsense Nemesis by recreating Haltmann's Executive Suit and takes over the GiIvaSunner world in the span of two minutes while giving a thorough and swift defeat to his opposition.

    • The surprisingly well-done art also deserves a mention, too, as whoever dealed with the art for the video clearly put time and effort into their work.
    • Episode 5 gives us Robbie Rotten's effortless breakout from the Voice's holding chambers.
    • Episode 9 gives us Snoop Dogg shooting Charles Barkley's basketballs out of the air, as well as Soulja Boy defeating the Kazoo Master... despite having a broken wrist.
  • GiIvaSunner's 'rip' of Agent Yoru o Yuku is not just an awesome rip in general, the very fact that the team actually managed to get in contact with several well-known YouTube voice actors, several of which are working as professional voice actors (like Chris Niosi and Kira Buckland), to write and perform the rip is an awesome feat in and of itself. The coolest segment just might be Kira singing "Snow Halation", since she's in the English dub of Love Live! as Umi.

  • This "It's-a me, Mario!" voiceclip rip from Super Mario 64 looks normal at first glance, but then you realized that it's Charles Martinet (Mario's voice actor) who's doing the voicework. Yes, there's no Manipulative Editing at all, it's really Charles who said it. Bonus points for the ripper spending $50 to have Charles Martinet give a shout-out to the channel.
  • The channel making "We Are Number One" a meme ended up being a primary factor in Robbie Rotten's actor beating cancer twice, because of all the people donating to his GoFundMe page and linking to it in the descriptions of "We Are Number One but X" edits. The cancer sadly returned and claimed his life, but it's universally agreed that he wouldn't have lived this long if it wasn't for memes.
  • "ULTRA B+K". They could've simply ripped the song, slapped the jubeat plus logo onto the video, and called it done, but someone went out of their way to render a full parody of the source track's music video.
  • On July 16, 2018, SiIvaGunner announced that, for the first time ever, they would decide the next character to take over the channel as decided by the fans, in the form of a battle royale subtitled "The King for a Day Tournament". More information on the event can be found here.
    • More than a year later on November 23, 2019, they did it again with the "King for Another Day Tournament".
  • Training Mode, released prior to the official start of the tournament, is one of the most elaborate rips in the channel's history. It's a 40-minute video where various M.U.G.E.N characters destroy the concept of mashups (represented by the word "MASHUPS") in cool and sometimes hilarious ways.
  • After mysteriously being terminated due to abuse of copyright, leaving the channel gone for around 2 months, the Giiva team grace us with this. Not many channels can claim they've been de-terminated.
  • The fact that certain songs have gotten so much online engagement that they come up in search engines before the original songs is an amazing accomplishment of the channel in itself.
  • The entire King for Another Day tournament is an Even Better Sequel to the original, with twice as many contenders, hundreds of rips, and dual rips that mix and mash the differing musical styles of the contenders. Some of these dual rips sound like nice collaborations between the two, and some of these sound like intense musical showdowns.
    • After his loss in the first round of the first tournament, DJ Professor K came back with a vengeance and a rekindled fan following, tore his way through the winner's bracket and became the champion. He basically got his redemption arc making up for his poor showing in the first KFAD.
    • The tournament's runner ups, Mariya Takeuchi, Law & Disorder, and MissingNo. all fought really hard as well. Law and Disorder went entirely undefeated until facing off against the Professor, and both Mariya and MissingNo. lost in the first round... and proceeded to sweep the entire loser's bracket until their match with each other (with Mariya prevailing.) MissingNo. had even previously won in the largest landslide of the entire tournament, over HOBaRT.
  • Title Theme - Ura Zelda deserves a special mention here for somehow managing to cram in nearly every running joke the channel had ever done at that point in the span of just two minutes.
  • What does Siiva do before bringing back all the Mario rips after the 2021 April Fools' Day? Release Ultimate Koopa Clear, a remix of Finale from Undertale using all three games of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection. Not only is it a great rip and a great follow-up to a previous rip of the event, Ultimate Koopa, but listening to the rip makes you really feel like Mario is fighting his way back to the channel, making clever use of the soundtracks to reinforce that.
  • As pointed out by Tech Rules, the Friday Night Funkin' Rips and their Charting were so high quality that MtH, the head manager of the channel, was contacted by the FNF devs so that not only could SNIFF (SiIva Note Importer For FNF), the charting tool developed by the SiIva team for the rips, be implemented into the base game starting with Week 7; but they also asked for her assistance updating the charting for all the previous weeks' songs plus help charting the songs for Week 7.
