SungWon Cho (known online as ProZD, born December 9, 1990) is an American voice actor known for taking requests and dubbing comics, but also for creating his own works, mostly short sketches, which are often based around video game and anime clichés, to the point where several arching stories are going on at once and a few of them have even crossed over.

- So This is Basically...: Various roles
His skits include the following tropes:
- Actually Pretty Funny:
- "let's read 5 youtube comments" has him respond to four comments attacking his weight, looks, and ethnicity with "you should suck my dick". The fifth one, however, calls him a weeaboo, to which he replies, "...that's fair."
- In "nerdy t-shirt designers," SungWon comes up with a t-shirt combining Overwatch and Sesame Street into "Groverwatch", before breaking character and admitting that he'd actually buy that one.
- all lowercase letters: most of his titles
- Aluminum Christmas Trees: A skit on Super Mario Odyssey has him looking up one obscure moon with the only clue is "look up at the sky for 5 seconds and then 50,000 miles away, you will see a taxi. That's where the moon is." It's an actual moon.
- Always with You:
- "when you skip all the cutscenes to get to the gameplay" has Archibald tell this to Dennis. Of course, SungWon doesn't care for the story and just skips through while yawning loudly.
- In "A man on his deathbed who is indecisive about his last words," the titular character says this before deciding it sounds creepy and backpedaling."Not like all the time, I'll watch you some of the time? Like, not when you're taking a shit or"
- Artificial Stupidity: The subject of "Pokemon NPCs," mocking the games' notoriously silly AI routines.
- Aside Glance:
- Lysanderoth does this in "replaying a game and knowing all the plot twists, much to the player's increasing anger at the taunts.
- Used at the end of "youtube," where a YouTube employee exclaims, "We just love stupid dipshits!" The latter two words make SungWon lose all of his cheeriness and break character.
- Audience-Alienating Premise: "trying to recommend that one niche show you love" has an In-Universe example, where he tries to recommend Chihayafuru to his friend, only for him to fall asleep before he's done explaining the basic premise.
- Author Appeal: Final Fantasy IX. Its music shows up in a lot of his videos, and "A special message from the creator of Final Fantasy" is about Hironobu Sakaguchi being bribed into saying it's the best one.note
- Badass Mustache: Archibald is this in-universe. His younger self doesn't have it and that makes it so rare that SungWon was willing to just drop money for the chance to have him.
- Bathos: "spell names in JRPGs" has Dennis face off against Lysanderoth. However, the drama of the scene is undercut by the two combatants calling out their spell names, which are taken from the Dragon Quest series and therefore sound very silly (Kaboomle, Kazammle, etc.).
- Big Damn Movie: In anime timeskips and spinoffs, Chairem Anime is a harem anime starring sentient furniture, but Chairem Anime: The Movie revolves around Tomoko (the main protagonist) defeating a dragon in a kingdom of ice.
- Biting-the-Hand Humor:
- "youtube" has some thinly-veiled complaints towards the website's treatment of channels such as his vs. that of Logan Paul's following the Suicide Forest incident in early 2018.
- Any skit that happens to be sponsored will invariably be taking the piss about whatever is sponsoring it. Crunchyroll sponsorships will make fun of anime, Shadowverse videos lampoon trading card games and Visual Novel cliches, etc.
- Blood Knight: All the Fire Emblem: Three Houses students on account of their Bond One-Liners, but especially Cyril:"It's ok to kill as long as you're having fun! Also, I'm 14!"
- Boastful Rap: King Dragon does this in "a villain is really excited to show the hero a rap he wrote"
- Brick Joke: About two and a half years after "Sidetracked by sidequests," in which he's trying to find pine cones, he one-shots the Final Boss with a slap of doom in "facing the final boss after doing every single sidequest" - he finally has possession of all 900 pine cones.
- Bring My Brown Pants: In "trying to convince your friend a character gets better later", the character in question starts off as a coward who soils his pants in fright.Guy 2: [to his friend] You gotta trust me on this.
Benji-kun: Im gonna pee my pants, Im so scared!
Guy 1: Okay, well, right now, this guy fuckin' sucks.
Benji-kun: Now Im peeing and pooping my pants 'cause Im so scared!
Guy 2: Just... just wait til episode 50.
Benji-kun: Now theres pee and poop everywhere!
Guy 2: Oh my god.
- But Thou Must!: In "games where your choices don't actually matter," Lysanderoth kills Archibald no matter which branch of the Dialogue Tree the player chooses.
- Cain and Abel: Gunther and Lysanderoth are jilted brothers, with Lysanderoth killing the entire village seemingly in an effort to prove his worth to Gunther, not that this gets much focus.
- Calvinball: The ProZD universe features a bizarre and unexplained collectible card game based around the dairy industry, which features as a stand-in for Magic: The Gathering or other card games.
- Captain Ersatz: While most skits either involve his parody characters or directly reference specific shows, sometimes one of these pop up. For instance, "trying to guess anime character ages" features a teenage ex-Child Soldier who now works "at a post office or something"... named "Azalea Evergreen".
- Cargo Ship: In-Universe, the premise of Chairem Anime has a human girl flirt with sentient furniture.
- Catchphrase: Archibald often repeats the phrase "Hyaa! I think that enemy got...the point!"
- Cerebus Syndrome: Chairem Anime seems to be hit by this hard, going from a fun harem comedy about a young woman surrounded by sentient furniture who all seem to be in love with her to a gritty drama involving conspiracies, murders, and the main character becoming a half-blind warrior and the President.
- Clickbait Gag: His video "Clickbait" shows how an article called "Pedro Pascal Joins Wonder Woman 2" gets ridiculously mutated by an editor into the completely non-indicative and exploitive "YOU WON'T BELIEVE". The article's author tries to argue that the title is stupid, but it gets thousands of shares from idiots before he can finish his sentence.Thomas Dipshit, Facebook User: I mean, it said I wouldn't believe it!
- Cluster F-Bomb: In "official subs vs fansubs," the fansubs are full of cursing, spoofing the fan translation tendency to Spice Up the Subtitles.
- Continuity Snarl: The King Dragon Canon refers to one or more handheld or console games with an anime spinoff starring King Dragon's son, not related to Chairem Anime except for the non-canon anime crossover movie Chairem Anime: Sofaden: The Movie: Dragon Clash in the Kingdom of Ice featuring an Ice Dragon that may be the same Ice Dragon working for King Dragon in one of the RPGs which may or may not be the same as the beat 'em up, or tile matching game, or card game. If they're separate games, they may share the same plot points, making their true canon status debatable.
- Cool Old Lady: The grandma in this video is apparently intimately familiar with Fire Emblem and Xenoblade.
- Corpsing: SungWon occasionally breaks character expression and holds back laughter while delivering lines, usually right at the end of the skit.
- "Fake American Names in a Japanese Baseball Game" has him reading off some of the Engrish-y names that were made for Fighting Baseball. He starts corpsing around Mario McRlwain.
- Creator Thumbprint: Most of his videos revolve around video games, anime, and doing silly voices.
- Creator's Favorite Episode: According to this top ten countdown, SungWon's favorite skit of his is the Detective Pikachu parody video.
- Cute Kitten: Effie and Sophie are black cats who occasionally star in his videos. Other times they just happen to be there.
- Don't Explain the Joke: "harem anime where everyone but the protagonist is sentient furniture" ends with SungWon making a pun. After a couple of beats, he starts to repeat it more insistently before being cut off by the end of the video.SungWon: More like [turns to camera with a deadpan look] chairem anime.
[He continues to look into the camera as it slowly zooms in on his face]
SungWon: More like cha—
- Don't Say Such Stupid Things: "official subs vs fansubs" is built around such a scene in Naruto... translated into English two different ways.
- Easily Forgiven: Parodied in "when everyone forgives the bad guy even though he did horrible shit".The Chick: Vegetalo, we'll be glad to have you on our team!
Vegetalo: Thank you.
Sosuke Bosuke: Guys, Vegetalo killed my entire family. Remember that scene where he was like:
Past Vegetalo: Look upon your dead family, Sosuke Bosuke! Every single one of them slain by my hand! Fuck you, Sosuke Bosuke! Your family sucks! I will never regret doing this!
Sosuke Bosuke: I think he's getting off a teensy bit scot-free...
- Embarrassing but Empowering Outfit: Invoked in "picking RPG clothes based on maxing stats instead of whether they match or not".
- Everyone Has Standards: The antagonist of "priorities in yu-gi-oh" is out-and-out evil and perfectly willing to risk a gruesome death over a children's card game, but even he gets weirded out when he finds out that ProZD's version of Yugi actively gets aroused by the danger.
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Parodied in "anime fans." A fan gives various reasons for the fan service in the show involving the heroine involving symbolism, meta commentary, and allusions to classical literature; meanwhile, the guy who actually made the show outright says he just put it all in to see tits.
- Evil Knockoff: He mocks that some of the Marvel movie villains are merely copies of the heroes with "evil" qualities tacked on.
- Exact Words: "Kingdom Hearts in a Nutshell" is about Sora, Donald, and Goofy being trapped inside a nut somehow.
- FaceHeel Turn:
- Somewhere along the way in "Chairem Anime," Refrigerator-Senpai did this.
- Lysanderoth will inevitably do this at some point.
- Fan Myopia: Parodied in "casual vs diehard kingdom hearts fans watching new trailers." The casual fan enjoys the inclusion of Frozen among other things, while the die-hard fan weeps at "Aqua getting Norted", which the casual player has no idea what that even means.
- Feghoot: "harem anime where everyone but the protagonist is sentient furniture" ends with SungWon saying "More like chairem anime."
- Fun with Acronyms: "relationship management in JRPGs" has a Chairem Anime Visual Novel which features the M.O.U.T.H. (Must Often Utter Talking-Points Hastily) system where what's said and how it's said determines the story.
- Game-Breaker: In How Different Players Build Their Decks:
- One of the players creates an insanely broken combo of Count Cornelius Cheddar, who can untap (recharge) other Cheese/Creature hybrids when he enters the battlefield, and Brie Breaker, which can be tapped to create a copy of another cheese/creature hybrid. The result is that he can create a copy of Count Cornelius Cheddar, which untaps Brie Breaker when it enters the battlefield, which then creates another Count Cornelius Cheddar, etc. This combo is in fact a reference to the Splinter Twin deck from Magic: The Gathering, which was itself banned due to being overpowered.
- There is also Groin Puncher. We don't get to see exactly what its stats are, but it apparently summons its four identical twin brothers and allows its player to punch their opponent in the groin in real life.
- Gameplay Roulette: Parodied in "games that think more gameplay mechanics equals more fun."
- Genre-Busting: The in-universe King Dragon series started out as a standard RPG, but over time has become a blend of RPGs, Dating Sims, card game mechanics, and Match Three Games. SungWon imagines that it's widely acclaimed in-universe for how it blends elements from multiple gaming genres.
- Genre Deconstruction:
- "If the Pokemon TV show were like the games" shows what would happen if the battles in Pokémon played out like it was in one of the games, with the Charizard's trainer using a Full Restore, and that for Ash to give up, they not only have to pay $1200, but then black out.
- The basis for "Maybe a villain song wasn't the best idea" is this. Dennis gets annoyed by the two minute long song and stabs King Dragon while he's distracted.
- In "Beds in Pokemon Sun and Moon", the homeowners are much more irritated and anxious about a complete stranger breaking into their house to sleep in their bed.
- Genre Shift: Chairem Anime starts out like a typical harem, but then Refrigerator-senpai kills Lamp-senpai and goes on the run, starting a chain of events which eventually lead to Tomoko becoming a legendary warrior and also the President. The genre shift is so much that where the original was parodying Ouran High School Host Club, the later entries are instead named after Naruto. Including the ridiculous non-canon Chairem Anime the Movie: Dragon Clash in the Kingdom of Ice.
- The Ghost: The Living MacGuffin of his RPG sketches, Prince Horace, is never seen.
- Got Me Doing It: "anime reaction sounds" has SungWon watching Lucky Star and its characters making happy noises which he does. Another SungWon comes in and asks what he's doing, who gets the same noise and he does it too when he realizes "It's spreading."
- Gotta Catch 'Em All: "games that think more gameplay mechanics equals more fun":Game: Speaking of eggs, don't forget to find all 800 eggs scattered throughout all the worlds!
Player Character: Is that optional?
Game: Oh yeah, sure, it's optional.
Player Character: Oh, okay.
Game: Yeah, sure, if you don't care about seeing the true ending.
Player Character: [angrily] All right! I guess I'll-
[10 hours later]
- Growing the Beard: "trying to convince your friend a character gets better later" deals with the awkwardness that results from one person knowing this trope is coming for Benji-kun, the whiny cowardly Scrappy, but having to explain to the person who hasn't seen the show yet that he honestly does get better.
- Guest Star: Veronica Taylor, the original voice actor for Ash, dubs over SungWon Ash in "if the Pokemon TV show were like the games."
- Guide Dang It!: "super mario odyssey" has him searching on the internet for the last moon. It turns out that he has to stare up at the sky to a floating taxi for five seconds and it'll pop up.
- Harsher in Hindsight: In-Universe, "replaying a game and knowing all the plot twists" renders much of what Lysanderoth says this after he shoots Archibald dead.
- Here We Go Again!: "playing fire emblem: three houses again" has him as the narrator exasperated that by this point, the player has already beaten the game four times and what's the point of doing it a fifth time? It then shows Edelgard and Bernadetta in maid costumes and says that's a good enough reason.
- Hidden Depths: Lysanderoth is implied to have these and a Freudian Excuse for his actions. "Implied" because whenever this comes up it inevitably ties into Gunther, whose Running Gag is that his and Lysanderoth's backstory and interactions get glossed over.
- High-Class Glass: His wealthy characters (as well as some of his villainous characters) tend to wear monocles as well as spectacles.
- Hufflepuff House: Brought up in The Four Hogwarts Houses.Dumbledore: Wise Ravenclaw, cunning Slytherin, brave Gryffindor, and Hufflepuff... they're there too I guess.
- I Know Mortal Kombat: A non video game example, but used in "when you think you're an expert after watching a TV cooking competition" after SungWon loudly complains about how to cook chicken, while also shown to be an inexperienced cook himself, burning pizza rolls while complaining.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Hey Bryce? Eat David.
- Improbable Age: Discussed in "Trying to Guess Anime Characters' Ages". The Shell-Shocked Veteran who has 1000 kills? 14. The world weary pianist? 8. The one character to act childish? 1000.
- Informed Ability: Played for Laughs in "when you start a new game and you meet the character you know is going to betray you" with the player being the only one who sees that Lysanderoth is Obviously Evil, yet his status as The Mole is treated as a shocking twist that he hid by being a master of deception.
- Innocent Innuendo: "when a game's audio is more suggestive than you realize"
- Instant Home Delivery: Averted, and Parodied in "fedex delivery", which has SungWon get increasingly annoyed at a late package, with FedEx giving him the runaround.
- Internet Jerk: According to "venting online about a hard part in a videogame", doing so will net you the worst replies the internet has to offer.SungWon: (furious) Siri, how do I delete ALL OF TWITTER?
- Interrupted by the End: Quite a few skits have someone being cut off mid-sentence by the end of the video for humorous effect.
- Irrelevant Sidequest: The whole plot of the video "avoiding the story path in a dungeon so you can explore all the other paths" has Archibald basically doing every Fetch Quest and Sidequest possible to see all the content the game has to offer and get rewarded for it, but is completely irrelevant to actually progressing the story.
- Just One More Level: "I could be playing Pokémon right now."
- The narrator of Fire Emblem: Three Houses actually starts berating him for launching into a fifth playthrough when there's so many other games he could be playing (including Pokémon Sword and Shield, ironically enough given the previous entry). At least until he sees the reason for the new playthrough: DLC Meido outfits.
- Kaizo Trap: "rhythm games":Make sure not to miss
A single note or you will
Fail the full combo
Now here's the ending of the song!
Psych! Just kidding! [MISS]
- Killed Mid-Sentence: King Dragon in "facing the final boss after doing every single sidequest", where Dennis, thanks to lots of incidental Level Grinding while collecting all 900 pine cones, kills him with a single slap in the middle of dialogue:
- Larynx Dissonance: SungWon has a pretty impressive vocal range (one reason he's gone professional) but when it comes to voicing women he falls back on the classic Miss Piggy voice.
- Last Lousy Point: The Super Mario Odyssey spoof has Mario take five hours to find the Apartment Kingdom's last Moon, located in a faraway flying taxi.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: "anime story arc titles" has a newbie fan watching a show that's been around for a while and has some weirdly named arcs that the fans know of and which outright spoil shocking twists and deaths.
- Layman's Terms: Parodied in "TV detective vs tech guy," where the TV detective makes increasingly oddly specific requests to translate the phrase "we can't track his computer" into various spoken languages; starting off innocently; Tech speak to layman's terms, moving onto the absurd; English to French, then the detective asks for the phrase in morse code.
- Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition: In-universe, a Parody Commercial promotes a Chairem Anime box set containing all 500 episodes, and several pointless feelies, such as "an ugly figure" and "some other crap you don't want." It's such a limited run, they're only selling three.
- Literal Genie: Implied in this Vine, where a man gains the ability to talk to objects, but is unable to understand their language. Then it cuts to the guy angrily asking someone (presumably a genie), "Okay, my second wish..."
- Man of a Thousand Voices: Over the years, the dude has shown a lot of vocal range in his videos.
- Monochrome Past: In "when an anime is clearly padding for filler time" for an event that happened roughly 25 seconds ago.
- Mood Dissonance: "cutscenes that keep the stupid clothes you put on your character"Dying Father: I have one final wish. Let me look into your eyes, one last time.
[Cut to the player character wearing a tuque and sunglasses as the music swells and the camera zooms in on his sunglasses]
Dying Father: You have your mother's eyes.
Player Character: [weeping and wiping an arm across his face] Father !
- Mood Whiplash:
- "games where only the cutscenes have full voice acting," as a dramatic scene goes from full voice acting to Voice Grunting.
- Uptown Goof takes quite a turn when the copyright police show up.
- Morton's Fork: Parodied in "games where your choices don't actually matter", particularly of the Telltale series' tendency to do this to "meaningful" decisions:1. Why are you doing this? - His master told him to. He then shoots Archibald.
2. Let's Negotiate! - Lysanderoth declines, and then he shoots Archibald.
3. [DISTRACT] Where is Prince Horace? - Lysanderoth ponders for a moment, and says he doesn't know, then he shoots Archibald.
4. Knock gun out of Lysanderoth's Hand - Lysandroth reveals he had a second gun behind his back the whole time... and then shoots Archibald.
- Multiple Endings: The Chairem Anime game in "relationship management in JRPGs" has SungWon get the Pepper Ending.
- Mundane Made Awesome: "sports commentators commentating a romantic anime scene", where an emotionally-charged love confession scene is amusingly spoofed by adding in color commentary as if it were a sports maneuver.
- Nap-Inducing Speak: In "trying to recommend that one niche show you love", SungWon explaining the Audience-Alienating Premise of Chihayafuru is enough to put his friend to sleep.
- Nice Hat: "Rare" Archibald is basically this."Hyaa! I think that enemy saw... my hat!"
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: "a villain who unintentionally always does helpful things"Villain: The city is doomed, Commander Fist Fight. I've poisoned the water supply!
Commander Fist Fight: Actually, because you poisoned the water supply, we discovered that the city's pipe infrastructure is really severely outdated. So thank you for bringing our attention to that, millions of people could've gotten really sick over the next few years. Secondly, because you snuck past the security system so easily, we found out that funds specifically for that security system were being embezzled by government officials, so we've busted a major fraud ring. And finally, the pathogen you unleashed does give people mild diarrhea, but we've found it also is a great source of Vitamin C.
Villain: Okay, whatever. Take this!
[the villain shoots Commander Fist Fight]
Commander Fist Fight: ...You fixed my shoulder!
Villain: GOD DAMMIT!
- Non-Player Character: Some skits poke fun at the idea of NPCs, especially for doing things like repeating lines, and standing around in one place forever.
- Non-Serial Movie: The King Dragon Canon/Chairem Anime crossover movie appears to be independent of the game and anime series timeline.
- Obligatory Swearing: Parodied in "official subs vs fansubs".
- Obvious Judas: Lysanderoth from "when you start a new game and you meet the character you know is going to betray you."Lysanderoth: This world is imperfect. If only I could wipe away the impurities, and make it as beautiful as me!
Sonia-Rica: Lysanderoth?! You were behind all this?!
Lysanderoth: Yes, it was I! My machinations lay undetected for years, for I am a master of deception!
- One True Threesome: His suggestion for resolving "anime love triangles.""And so, anime was solved forever!"
- Only Sane Man: Several skits have exactly one character reacting like a normal human being would, usually with quiet exasperation or apathy.
- Orgasmic Combat: Spoofed in "when a game's audio is more suggestive than you realize", which features various voice clips that sound suggestive out of context, including groans from when a character takes damage.
- Overly Long Gag: "open world games" mostly consists of SungWon slowly walking around the in-game area, with multiple time skips to show his progress.
- Phrase Catcher: Dennis is told many times of how [he]ll never save Prince Horace.
- Play the Game, Skip the Story: "when you skip all the cutscenes to get to the gameplay" has him ignoring everything in the story about why everyone's doing everything and just wants to play actual Shadowverse matches.
- Pokémon Speak: In defective weaponry
- Precision F-Strike: Done in "having a non-white name" when SungWon gets fed up with a guy who keeps mispronouncing his name despite being corrected so many times.Guy: [long pause] Do you have an English name?
- Rainbow Pimp Gear: Point out when it's suspected how people would actually react to a weirdly-dressed PC.King: So you finally... arrived. What the hell are you wearing?
Hero: It's my ass-kicking outfit, bitch!
- Really 700 Years Old: Mocked in "Trying to Guess Anime Characters' age". The "widdle baby girl" is a thousand years old, which instantly had him nope out.
- Record Needle Scratch: "I now pronounce you man and- anime body pillow!?"
- Running Gag: In his "behind the scenes" skits involving attempts at clickbait or attracting an audience, at some point, one of the executives or performers will yell out that they have to "tickle their balls a little!"
- Saw Star Wars 27 Times: He claims he has every scene from Disneys Peter Pan memorized. In a video, he recited a five minute long scene from the movie with uncanny accuracy.
- Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: The sword and pistol in defective weaponry.
- Serious Business:
- One of the players of the cow-themed card game tends to plan extremely intricate and convoluted turns involving multiple card switches and bonuses, much to the frustration of his less-strategically minded opponent.
- Invoked in "anime time skips and spinoffs" when Tomoko-Chan observes that this is the reason that her outfit is now black.
- Sex Is Violence: In "priorities in yu-gi-oh", Yugi apparently gets off to dangerous situations.
- Sheltered Aristocrat: In "What rich people are like probably", a very rich person has no idea what coins are and assumes poor people eat them. In its sequel, "What rich people are like probably pt. 2, he sees a hot dog for the first time and assumes it's actually made of dog meat.
- Shipping Goggles: In-universe. "shipping characters" has a guy claiming two characters are "fucking" simply because they greeted each other. The other guy is skeptical... at least until the two characters' language starts getting intimate. For bonus points, it's a Cargo Ship.
- Shout-Out Theme Naming: Parodied here.Dad: You were named after two of the bravest men I ever knew, Goku Naruto.
Goku Naruto: That's stupid.
Dad: No, it's not!.
Goku Naruto: Goku can eat my shorts!
Dad: GOKU WAS A SUPER SAIYAN!!
- Skewed Priorities: Yugi willing to risk his soul for "a card he can buy on Amazon for fifty cents".note Turns out he gets off on the danger, which even creeps out the villain.
- Smash Cut: From "anime timeskips and spinoffs:Tomoko-chan: But one thing we all know is that we will always be friends forever, and nothing will ever change tha-
- So Long, and Thanks for All the Gear: Parodied in "when your party member dies permanently", where Dennis laments Archibald's death because he spent so much on his gear.Dennis: I dodged a thousand lightning bolts for your final weapon!
Archibald: [weakly] Are you fucking serious right now?
- Something Something Leonard Bernstein: "when you know only the random English parts in a non-English song pt. 2"
- Spice Up the Subtitles: Parodied in "official subs vs fansubs", in which the hypothetical fansubber throws a bunch of swear words in just to make the dialogue sound more "mature".
- Spin-Offspring/Time Skip: "anime timeskips and spinoffs" has this parodied with Chairem Anime, showing it happen with the timeskip to Chairem Anime: Sofaden. The next one after that suddenly has Tomoko with an Eyepatch of Power and her daughter Bomoko, then another timeskip and Grandma Tomoko's about to introduce her granddaughter Gromoko.
- Sprint Meter: One of the things poked fun at in "open world games", where it drains incredibly quickly, leading to him getting winded in less than three seconds.
- Sure, Let's Go with That: Invoked in "Decidueye", with two devs discussing Rowlet's final evolution name, with one thinking of basing it on the word "Deciduous", and the other quickly thinking of a portmanteau, and seemingly thinks of the first word that came into their head, which makes the unchallenged name of "Decidueye" (which SungWon clearly thinks is a bit stupid).
- Take That!: "5 HUMILIATING mistakes in Disney's Zootopia" parodies CinemaSins-style "nitpick" videos; three of the titular mistakes are simply the fact that animals can't talk in real life, one is an actual goof about the main character turning a page in her file that seems to disappear (which is then blown out of proportion by the narrator), and the final one is cut off when the sexy tiger dancers at the end seem to provoke a homosexual furry awakening in the narrator.
- Take That, Audience!: Earlier skits would have him use a PSP in lieu of a phone, something which people in the comments would constantly point out. In Nothing gets past those brilliant internet commenters, he portrays the audience that does this as unnecessarily angry and gives them a whiny voice.
- Talking Is a Free Action: Averted. King Dragon's rap in "a villain is really excited to show the hero a rap he wrote" and his Villain Song in "Maybe a villain song wasn't the best idea" don't keep Dennis from doing anything while King Dragon is singing. In fact, Dennis takes advantage of this by stabbing King Dragon during the Villain Song.
- There's No Kill Like Overkill: In this sponsored comedy skit for Shadowverse, one of the guys he plays as performs an extremely long and specific combination of cards despite his opponent only having 1 HP left. His cards end up having dozens of attack points before he finally decides to end his opponent.
- Thinly-Veiled Dub Country Change: Food in Bad Anime Dubs is him poking fun of the dubbers calling food what it blatantly isn't.
- This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: Concludes Naruto's thoughts to Sasuke in "official subs vs fansubs" in the "fansub"; that is, "you fucking bitch!"
- Too Awesome to Use: Parodied, with a fighter and mage arguing over a pretty basic item and circumstance:Mage: I'm out of MP.
Fighter: Then use an Ether!
Mage: But - but you can't buy Ethers.
Fighter: It's the final battle!
Mage: But I only have 85 of them.
- Too Long; Didn't Dub: "official subs vs fansubs" has the personal pronoun "ore" untranslated for no real reason, and retains "nakama" with a screen-filling Translator's Note explaining what it is and why they didn't just translate it to "friend" or something.
- Top Ten List: SunWong has two videos that has the Viewers' Top 10 Favorite Skits and another of His mom's Top 10 Favorite Skits.
- Troperiffic: Much of the humor of his skits comes from Parodying, Lampshading, or sometimes even Deconstructing the tropes of Anime, Video Games, and genre fiction in general.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: One video has him eventually noticing that the enthusiastic victory quotes from Fire Emblem: Three Houses characters basically amount to teenage soldiers loving murder.
- Unfortunate Names: Aighe'luvsekksnote the ice dragon from "when a game's audio is more suggestive than you realize."
- Unprovoked Pervert Payback: In "when an anime is clearly padding for filler time," one of the techniques to drag on the episode is to have Tomoko slap Sosuke Bosuke for supposedly looking up her skirt even though he clearly didn't.
- Villain Song: The focus of one skit. The hero stabs the villain in the middle of it.
- Vocal Dissonance:
- The mob boss in "a mob boss with the least intimidating voice".
- He plays off some Self-Deprecation humor in your voice doesn't match your face, apparently due to many seeing this trope between his deep baritone voice and round, child-like face.
- Lampshaded in audition sides i get sent for my voice vs my face; the voice audition is an epic evil speech, while the face audition is a nerd playing too many computer games.
- Voice Grunting: "games where only the cutscenes have full voice acting" has this happen in the last 4 seconds once the cutscene ends.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Labor Day Archibald."Hyaa! I think that workers have contributed to... our country!"
- Welcome to Corneria: Upon victory, Archibald exclaims, "Hyah! I think that enemy got... the point!" The player finds the line funny at first, but he repeats it after every fight, so it soon becomes annoying.
- Wham Line: Parodied. "My real name is... Lygar" is apparently one. However, because we have zero context due to Dennis skipping all the cutscenes, the effect is...kind of lost.
- Wildlife Commentary Spoof: Talks about his cat in one video. It goes off the rails pretty quick when he starts gushing about cats.
- Word Salad Title: Every arc in the anime discussed in "anime story arc titles" has this, from "Jumprope Canyon" to "Spade Is Invulnerable." Special mention goes to the arc in which Vegetalo comes Back from the Dead, which sounds like a DS game but is actually spelt "Ho! Tell d.u.S.K."
- You No Take Candle: In "getting into a conversation in a language you don't actually speak that well," SungWon's Korean besides greetings and trying to explain he doesn't speak it very well is... lacking. The fluent speaker doesn't seem to notice him struggling.Fluent speaker: [in Korean] It's such great weather out today! It's perfect weather for going outside!
SungWon: Uh... [in Korean] weather... good... [in English] Just-just shoot me in the face.
- Younger Than They Look: trying to guess anime characters' ages has this played for laughs, with the first being Azalea Evergreen who killed thousands of soldiers in a civil war and now works in a post office... and she's fourteen. Next is Sosuke Bosuke, who was a piano prodigy who left the competition due to psychological trauma... and he's eight! The last one inverts it when she says she's a little baby girl who's a thousand, making SungWon turn the TV off.
