Due to wiki policy, moments pages must contain unmarked spoilers. You Have Been Warned.
- Episode 51: Failure and Success
- Starting off the episode, we have Chugga's reaction to Hardhaigh Palace's music.
- There's a rather humorous dissonance of Chugga playing as Mòrag, the Special Inquisitor of Mor Ardain, and the large majority of characters either acting as if she isn't there or treating her like anyone else despite the quest in question being centered heavily in Mor Ardain.
- Chugga's had a history of mispronouncing sentences in this game, but what takes the cake is Crossette trying to comfort Rami. After asking if he's alone and starving, Crossette replies, "I'm just kind like that." Instead, Chugga says it as, "I'm just kinda like that," which makes it sound like his Blades are starving to death.
- Not too long after the cutscene for the above, Chugga checks out Crossette's Affinity Chart. This happens:Crossette: Pyra will have to notice me now!
Chugga in faux female voice: ~Sempai~...
- Mòrag's very dramatic reaction to Tully noting the value of some cargo being 1 Million Gold.
- After the cutscene where Perceval beats down the crooked doctor and moneylender, Chugga assembles the Gungnir Wardens (lead by Wulfric) for a Merc Mission, only to lampshade the absurd idea of the large and monstrous looking Wulfric working on the gondolas.Chugga in faux Wulfric voice: I AM YOUR GONDOLA REPAIR MAN! WROOOOOARGH!
- If you thought Azami was the biggest Yandere in Xenoblade 2, you should see Chugga when somebody other than himnote refers to Perceval as Percy.
- Rex glitching out at hyperspeed.Chugga: Why is Rex gyrating everytime I want to do something cool?
- He then notices that Pyra is watching him.
- Chugga tries to make a dramatic entrance into where Pupunin is going to be facing the Bloody Lobsters assassins... only to not only botch up the dramatic entrance, but also get distracted by Brobro nearby.
- As Chugga is about to end off the episode, Crossette's merc group returns... and unlocks a mission to the Kingdom of Tantal, a country that they don't even have access to yet (and given they haven't even gone to Indol yet, presumably won't for a very long time).Chugga: Crossette, did you break something?Alex Havener comment reaction: Yeah, five centuries of isolationism.
- Episode 52: Getting to Know You
- The episode starts with Rex murdering a Level 1 Krabble as he claims what a beautiful day it is. Which kinda makes it seem like he killed it because it was in the way of the beautiful day.
- After Adenine's Heart-to-Heart, Chugga talks to Helehele in front of Bana's former room, who claims she could have never suspected just how low Bana would sink for gold. Given how Bana was like...Chugga: You and no one else.
- Chugga just growling at the fact that the next Heart-to-Heart is at Fishy Fishy in Argentum.
- Chugga is confused at the pronunciation of "coup de grace" after hearing it from Mòrag during her Heart-to-Heart. He ends up checking a dictionary and finds out both he and Mòrag were completely wrong in how they had pronounced it all along.
- After the Auction for the Tome of Morytha, Chugga talks to Pilopilo, and in the background Dromarch suddenly just jumps up for no apparent reason. Humorously Chugga mistakes him for Nia.
- Chugga murders the Mayne Driver yet again.
- Once Adenine comes back from her Merc Mission...
- Episode 53: Crystal Clear
- The start of the episode has Chugga narrating about Mòrag in the most dramatic way possible, leading to him leaping off the tower he was standing on in a dramatic fashion... only to end up dead after he lands on a rocky outcropping further down below. And then Brighid's dead body lands right afterwards.Chugga: She already laid down in midair in preparation to die!
- And then Chugga jumps off the edge with Mòrag again just to hear her falling scream sound.
- The time has come for Chugga to awaken his favorite Blade... and it just so happens to be Corvin. His reaction is just priceless.
- Chugga is just as perplexed as the audience is to hear ice cream truck music playing when the group is surrounded by imperial soldiers.
- The return of Captainnote Padraig.
- Chugga ends up bursting out laughing at the end of Kora's lengthy return speech from their Merc Mission.
- Chugga relates the time when he wanted to go to bed and was waiting for the 20 minute part of the Merc Mission to complete, and then he unintentionally thinks about buying Google Play credits to speed things up... only to then remember/realize he wasn't playing a mobile game.
- And then after the above, he realizes he's in the wrong place, teleports to the right location... and then foolishly makes Mòrag jump to her death again.
- When Nia says to Corvin, "Heh. Cocky little...", you can actually hear Chugga say the word "shit" under his breath.
- The start of the episode has Chugga narrating about Mòrag in the most dramatic way possible, leading to him leaping off the tower he was standing on in a dramatic fashion... only to end up dead after he lands on a rocky outcropping further down below. And then Brighid's dead body lands right afterwards.
- Episode 54: One Lucky Gal
- Chugga talks to Razzlydazzly, who says that Rex has changed... to Mòrag since she's the main party member at the moment.Chugga: If you think this is Rex, I'll bet.
- After opening one of the chests:Mòrag: This is for a just cause.
Chugga: That's what the concept artist on Just Cause said whenever they finished a piece! Now there's actually a joke that no gaming journalist has ever made about that title before!
- Chugga sets off on a hunt for a Gluttonous Marrin, and in spite of how many Normal Cylinders he uses, he can't get one to spawn from salvaging, and even gets a few rare drops and Golden Treasure Chests. ...It's only when he uses a Golden Cylinder, which is supposed to increase the chances for rare drops, does the Gluttonous Marrin show up.
- To add insult to injury, when Chugga slays the Marrin, it despawns the Golden Chest he got from salvaging.Poppi QT: Masterpon! Are you pleased?
Chugga: (whining) ...No!
- Becomes doubly ironic given the item he got before the despawning was the "Lucky Core Crystal". Also fitting given what the Blade within is.
- Even better, a level up for Vess' "Not Part of the Plan" pops up right as he's ranting about this.
- To add insult to injury, when Chugga slays the Marrin, it despawns the Golden Chest he got from salvaging.
- As Chugga talks to Pilolo, the Nopon mentions that his teacher Guztin never made it to the village. How does Chugga react to this in-character?Tora: Tora get it!
Chugga: [as Tora] He dead!
- One comment regarding the newly awakened Kasandra sums her up succinctly:The Baconator: Kasandra is the Chugga blade: has random BS luck that is good for themselves and horrible for others.
- After a lengthy battle against a sidequest mob group where Chugga praises Kasandra as being one of the few decent Shield Hammer Blades and also complaining about his first time on said sidequest involving trouble finding the location, finding it by accident and then finding out he was up against 5 monsters equal to his own level during the earliest time the quest is available at the early 30s, he zooms in on Poppi glitching out.
- Chugga talks to Razzlydazzly, who says that Rex has changed... to Mòrag since she's the main party member at the moment.
- Episode 55: Shiny New Power
- While reading Tora's Letter about which Common Blades to use, Chugga speeds up and pitches up the audio for each description.
- While showing his Quest screen, he places a large "IGNORE THIS WORK IN PROGRESS" warning on Ursula's infamous Blade Quest.
- While talking about reasons for using Common Blades he says that Rex doesn't have an Ether Cannon Rare Blade forgetting that he had Azami on Rex. The comments speak for themselves:sonnytapman: I dont have an Ether Cannon on Rex either.
Meanwhile, in Garfont, Azami stops cooking. Crossette looks at her, confused.
Um... Azami, are you alright?
The dark blade shakes her head. Its nothing, dear. I just feel like someone I know said something extremely foolish.
- Chugga himself also lampshades on Twitter how him forgetting about Azami overshadowed the comments compared to the main event of the video.
- The animal Common Blade gives Rex a bit of encouragement before he goes salvaging, something Chugga notices and comments on... and then the loot turns out mediocre and no monsters.Chugga: ...Damn, your encouragement sucks.
- Before checking on a Heart-to-Heart in Tora's workshop, a quick conversation with Tatazo reveals he needs to stay there to repair Lila. Chugga as Tora's response?Chugga as Tora: Dadapon can stay here for Lila. Otherwise, get lost.
- Afterwards, Chugga finds a spot he doesn't know about above in Tora's house... and it's the rules for playing the "Tiger! Tiger!" game. You can hear Chugga's annoyance that such tutorials are hidden away in the most out of place location possible, comparing it to Pikmin 3.
- Chugga admits after seeing the name Corvin chose for his merc squad, he was going to make fun of him by calling it something silly, only to recant because Corvin made puns out of it.
- After finding what is implied to be Grampypon Soosoo's "special design bible", Chugga only has this to say:Chugga: Boy, when we show him we got his book back, I bet he'll have a real bulge in his harbor!
- A Freudian Slip mixed with Astonishingly Appropriate Interruption for the ages. Mòrag says, "Knowing what I do of your grandfather's proclivities," but Chugga misreads that last word as "provoclivities". ...Complete with a slide whistle lampshading how much of an Epic Fail that was.
- When Tora insults Poppibuster and it asks if it can crush him, Chugga adds in a sound effect specifically for the "crush him" part.
- After the cutscenes, Chugga ends up relating how for the longest time as a kid he believed that working a computer as hard as possible would somehow make it stronger like how exercise makes a human stronger.
- Episode 56: Whereabouts Unknown
- Chugga realizes that Mòrag, for some reason, flails her arms around every time she speaks in a text of dialogue. At first, he simply acknowledges it by making a silly noise every time she does it, but it eventually gets to the point where he adds in a "fweep" sound effect when she speaks.
- Chugga gets jumpscared twice: First by the Poppibuster after it makes a loud noise, the second by the Rampaging Sauros.Chugga: [Reading the quest objective] Face off against the giant- WOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
- Leave it to Chugga to create a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment by adding Donkey Kongs "Okay!" voice clip onto Rex saying, "OK!" once he opts to retreat from the Rampaging Sauros.
- Chugga ends up snarking about how someone was paid to storyboard and animate the brief cutscene of the party running half a screen away from the Sauros and Rex saying "OK!" And paid to watch it 100 times to make sure it worked properly.
- Episode 57: All's Fair in Love and Innuendos
- The Irony that two episodes after forgetting that he has Azami, Chugga ends up spending the episode doing her Blade Quest.
- As Chugga searches collection points to boost up his Common Blades, one point ends up having Kasandra, Crossette, and Poppi QT talking all over each other simultaneously, leading to this golden bit:Chugga: We get it, you're all farmers. ...Bum ba-dum bum bu-bum bum.
- Chugga reacts to Azami saying a certain Ardainian Soldier phrase when leaving for her Merc Mission.
- Chugga's disbelief at Azami claiming she shouldn't have gone alone on her Merc Mission:Chugga: We sent five other blades with you... including Corvin! Have you seen that boy!?
- The fact that Rex is Azami's Driver makes her interactions with him even funnier, especially since Pyra is right there and volunteers for the party to accompany her whether Rex likes the idea or not, oblivious to Azami's rather unsubtle advances on Pyra's not-yet-boyfriend. Chugga voices Rex's next line to Mòrag as if he's quietly begging her to save him.
- "Because you just told me, Fox Boy!"
- "Why do drug dealers have such nice houses?!"
- And then not long after Chugga finds a Doomsday Poppy:Chugga: That's what we wanted to unleash upon their ass when we wanted to blow their house sky high.
- And then not long after Chugga finds a Doomsday Poppy:
- The Nopon just awkwardly standing in the background during the interrogation after using her information to draw out the shady botanist.
- Mòrag yells "What!?" dramatically once again in response to the reveal about Thanatitan.
- Used once again at the very end of the ending card.
- Chugga lampshades just how fast the elevator into the Ardainian Mine going would likely kill anyone who uses it when it comes up.
- Chugga gets the brilliant idea of trying to jump down into the pool of green ether to save time. Guess what ends up happening? The sheer pointlessness of his decision only becomes more apparent when it's revealed that you aren't even supposed to go to the machine in the first place.
- Chugga lampshades how so many quests that need Mòrag in order to be completed somehow have many characters be unaware who Mòrag is in the first place, even in Mor Ardain, her home.
- Rex manages to get to a low enough health that Azami's specials are basically devastating... and then Rex dies before Chugga can use them.
- Chugga ends up splurging on some expensive cosmetics to try to be nice to Azami after her quest... only to then realize her favorite one is something else entirely. To add insult to injury to Azami though, after Chugga gets the item in question for her, Mythra (by coincidence or otherwise is uncertain), ends up getting 2 Affinity Chart unlocks, while Azami, in Chugga's own words:Chugga: Mythra got all that from the Red Opal Lipstick and Azami got sent back to work [On Merc Missions]! Owwwwwhoooouch! *cackling in pitying amusement* Man, I'd be feeling pretty inferior if I were Azami, ouchies.
- Episode 58: Industrial Sort of Tour
- The episode starts off with Finch standing in a vat of fish as if it were a birdbath. Made even better when Finch sits in the vat, and Chugga finds it adorable.
- After the Heart-to-Heart "Uraya Goes to War", Chugga points out something horrifying that he recommends the audience cover their ears for... Tora is floating in the air during it. He sarcastically laments that he no longer likes the game.
- Chugga has some heartwarming words of encouragement for Cole, writing his play about Vandham, and then...Chugga: Nia, get off the table!
- Chugga notices an NPC named Vasq that he somehow didn't notice before, jumps down... and then misses the platform he was on. Then he realizes that he could have just used the back alley entrance nearby.
- "Obstinate Pursuit from where I don't know, prepare yourself for an unmerciless beating from Rolf's shoe!"
- "This attic is best addict."
- The sheer dripping sarcasm coming from Chugga as he lampshades the brilliance of the developers' decision to put 4 small and difficult to find characters on a sidequest inside the Old Abandoned Factory, with no way of tracking them or finding them on a map with only vague hints on their location, and then packaging it in a DLC that you have to pay money for speaks for itself.
- Chugga finding Niranira by complete accident results in him putting the appropriate music for his secret base. And then he makes fun of Mythra standing on yet another chest.Chugga: One of these days I'm going to swing that [chest] open, and it's gonna comedically launch your face back into that wall.
- At one point, he attempts to run straight through several jets of fire and tank the damage, only to die as soon as he reaches the other side. The party proceeds to rub salt in the wound:Rex: That was poorly judged!
Chugga: (under his breath) Shut up, Mythra.
- While expressing his irritation at Patroka's poor voice acting, he makes a badly timed jump and Tora falls... in the most bizarrely humorous way due to the level geometry.
- In preparation of Ursula's sidequest, Chugga decides to empty out his stash of Common Core Crystals, and in doing so outdoes himself in how lucky he can be by summoning three separate Rare Blades when he was just expecting one.
- Chugga gives us a Bait-and-Switch for Perun on commenting on how far technology has developed... before commenting on how shiny her clothes are.
- When he awakens the last blade summoned in the episode, he comments on how the silhouette looks like a dog, before it turns out to be a female Common Blade.
- As a lead-up to the next part, Chugga ends the episode with Nia running away from Ursula, until she hurls herself off a cliff. The episode cuts out mid-way through Nia's scream.
- Episode 59: Bearing Her Soul
- The episode focuses on Ursula's sidequest, which causes Chugga to slowly lose his mind due to doing the entire quest all at once. This episode is more or less the Doggy Race Track/the hunt for the legendary birds of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Let's Play for Chugga.Video description: Today, we die.
- Chugga gives Kiara an utterly atrocious approximation of her accent after the regular cutscene plays out. Though given he thinks her voice sounds like Lil from Rugrats...
- And then he notes that his voice for her has devolved even further into a mid-western mom voice when he talks to her again near the end of the sidequest.
- For Chugga's first Merc Mission for Ursula, he realizes that due to the Blades he chose, she was getting singing lessons from Wulfric.
- Early on in the questline, Chugga's explanation of how stamps work is interrupted by his Siri picking up his voice and playing a song. He attempts to tell it to stop on-camera before cutting away and laughing about it.
- When Ursula gets Stage Fright and needs some churros to calm her down, her manager goes to distract the audience with his "gift of gab". Chugga only has this to say:
- "We're gonna pop our first Love Source. I'm gonna be doing this on Nia, uh-"
- Chugga realizing that his notes on Vocals Stamp requirements are wrong, and that unlocking the next Merc Mission is going to take even longer than he anticipated.
- In a case of the sidequest's story meeting an absurd element of the Merc Missions, the ultimate goal of the quest is to sing in the theater of Alba Cavanich... except one Merc Mission BEFORE this point involve singing for the Urayan Queen. Needless to say, Chugga lampshades the silliness of considering singing for royalty lesser than singing for another royal group. Becomes even more ridiculous given not too long after, Ursula's next Merc Mission involves singing for the Emperor of Mor Ardain.
- The sheer horror in Chugga's voice when he realizes that because of him not using Indol's Merc Missions due to respecting the continuity of the game, he has to grind his way through the last few hundred fans needed without the help of the concerts from that nation that could have ended his misery sooner.
- After 22 hours and 59 minutes over the equated span of 3 days, Chugga finally reaches 5,000 fans for Ursula and can progress the story. ...Only for Tipitapi to unlock new concert missions that Chugga sorely needed hours ago and serve no use to him now.Chugga: Oh, NOW you unlock the new concerts, you son of a bitch! Is this a joke!?
- "My batteries [for my Joy-Cons] are low... on more levels than one..."
- Chugga lampshades how Mabon's house's lights are still on.
- The episode focuses on Ursula's sidequest, which causes Chugga to slowly lose his mind due to doing the entire quest all at once. This episode is more or less the Doggy Race Track/the hunt for the legendary birds of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Let's Play for Chugga.
- Episode 60: Leadership Qualities
- Chugga's intro is interrupted by him freaking out about Ursula being in the Garfont camp due to what happened last episode.
- While Chugga talks to Zuo, he gets distracted by Electra in the most gushy way possible.
- During the interview quest, his next candidate is a Nopon. Chugga lampshades the tendency for Nopon to be either a giant sleazeball or have such a traumatizing backstory that he ends up hiring them out of pity.
- Chugga starts to gush intensely after finding out that Roc has a new Heart-to-Heart in Garfont Village... only to then realize he doesn't know where exactly in the village it is.
- While Chugga talks to Alicia (the new recruit for Garfont Village) at night, Boreas ends up coincidentally bouncing up and down at the mention of Alicia's other profession as the head chef at night.
- To further his appreciation for Roc, Chugga details how, canonically, Roc identifies as non-binary. When bringing up how datamines should figure out what his actual gender is, he says it does. ...Roc's gender is listed as 4.
- Episode 61: Aurora Boreas?
- The title of the episode drew in exactly the kind of comment you expected:
- Chugga's intent of showing an infographic regarding the Strength stat gets derailed by the fact that after talking to a hacker, it turns out no one knows where the Strength stat for the various Blades is actually stored in the code. It then turns out Chugga does at least know the base stats for Pyra and Mythra... with Pyra having 24 and Mythra having 9.Chugga: Did they think making this game confusing was funny?
- He then seems to make the gag about Datamining... only to subvert it by revealing he talked to a speedrunner... WHO LOOKED AT THE DATAMINE!
- And then Chugga's shouting of the Datamine bit accidentally scares his cat Kirby (who has been on his lap for the whole video), and Kirby ended up dragging the headphones away with him.
- There's a fairly humorous dissonance of having Mòrag be in the party, and also having the party breaking and entering into the backdoor of a Warehouse (that's literally just on the side of the Argentum ship in plain sight) just to fill it with food for Boreas. This side quest becomes even more humorous by the fact that you can talk to the finished stash of food to boost Argentum's Development Level.Chugga: And I thought my Animal Crossing town was culturally bankrupt.
- WULFRIC SMASH YOUR PRICES!
- Chugga admits his inability to pronounce Welsh (though he mistakes them for Scottish in the video) words and probable continued failure to pronounce them, lampshading how he'll see the name Jim, only for comments to claim it's something like Blargenshamablingen.
- Chugga notes that Boreas is a good place to finally dump Pyra's cooking (due to how poor the stats of her cooked foods are) into since they also boost his Affinity Chart... only for Boreas to, by pure coincidence, ask if he could have more of Pyra's cooking, much to Chugga's sheer surprise.
- "[Boreas] is the best blade, to get as your first one! [He's] ab-septionally... absurdtionally? Absurdtionally! I'll make up that word for you Boreas..."
- Chugga's reaction to the end of one of Boreas' Heart-to-Heart options.
- Chugga can't remember what his notes are talking about in regards to Pyra, only to decide that it's probably just talking about her being Mythra's additional blade coverage.Ahmed Yoshi: ...Bruh. Burn. This is quite literally adding fuel to the fire.
- After THIRTEEN EPISODES, we're finally heading back to the main story. The comments say it best:Dragonmaster XYZ: Chugga: "Next time, we are continuing the main story."
Me: "Oh yeah, forgot that was a thing."
Those waiting for the story to continue: "It's been 84 years..."
- Episode 62: Stolen Keepsake
- The above post ends up being only partially fulfilled:Sarons: In this (Fixed) Episode, We (FINALLY) return to Fonsett, in hopes that we wont be stopped by more side quests!
- When doing the second part of Crossette's cooking quest, Chugga almost makes the same "I'm just kinda like that" mistake he made during part one, having to stop himself and read "I'm just kind like that" out slowly.
- During the conversation between Rex, Mythra and Crossette, Mythra disses Crossette's cooking (which is rich by itself coming from her) and then throws in an insult that would be very familiar to anyone who played Torna - The Golden Country:Crossette: (peeved about Mythra not caring about her respect) Well now you're just being rude.Mythra: And you're a simpleton. And boring to boot.Chugga: Pot, meet Kettle!
- Chugga ends up being incredulous as the conversation above ends because the hungry characters don't even get food, not even having Rex making them a lousy sandwich.
- The recipe Crossette learns from that little interlude is called "Brimstone Tartari."Chugga: Maybe it's for the best that they didn't actually get any of this.
- "Oh Nia, youve just become infinitely more attractive to me... not in that way. She's like 14 or something. Jeez, I did not mean it that way, I meant in battle."
- Chugga then ends up noting how that awkwardness is now stuck on the internet for all to see forever.
- Chugga's reaction to Rex using "Eyup" like a southern hick, then suddenly becoming Australian after using "Crikey" during the conversation to unlock several of Corvin's Affinity Chart objectives.
- Chugga's sheer giddiness at sending Skyfist Remington off of a cliff.
- Skyfist Remington holds a unique place in Chugga's history, since back then during the early days it wasn't easy to find the OST, especially for one of Chugga's favorite songs from this game "You Will Recall Our Names". What makes it funny is that Chugga instead would literally pick a fight with Skyfist Remington since he was one of the Unique Monsters who had the song, and would stay on a Chain Attack for upwards of an HOUR, JUST to hear the song.
- Chugga initially thinks he got the requirements for an Affinity Chart unlock for Poppi Alpha...only to then find out that he misunderstood the criteria. Needless to say, he won't need a certain joke anymore:Chugga: I WAS ROBBED! SOMEBODY CALLED MY ATTORNEY!
- Chugga ends up toppling a Skad Taos over the cliff and it died instantly from the fall, much to his amusement. He ends up being even more amused when he realizes that the Unique Monster (the Rapturous Scandia) he killed earlier near the Skad Taos was actually an obstacle for the Skad Taos, who he needed to kill for Pyra's Affinity Chart, but he completely forgot that was the case and killed one of them without realizing it.
- When Chugga realizes that the objective monster he was supposed to go after, the Gegl Quadwing, was quite literally right there on top of a tree platform the whole time, and that he essentially went on a wild goosechase around the entire island.
- Chugga mistimes his jump from one tiny titan to another and kills Mòrag from fall damage. Not too long afterwards trying to get back there, Vess jumps off and then Poppibuster as well. Then Mythra also jumps while Rex wanders around in circles in the righthand corner.
- The sheer humor-tinged silence and clear attempt on Chugga's part to not burst out laughing when you bring the "Red Collar" item back to Dragand, and the choices include his dog, or his wife.
- Chugga tries to cook with Crossette, but...Chugga: Imported all the way from Godsford Isle, it's the BEAT SHRIMP!
(forgets he doesn't have Crossette equipped)
*One cut later* Imported all the way from my ass' hammerspace, it's Crossette!
- After the misdirection of the past episode, we are now finally going to Indol.
- The above post ends up being only partially fulfilled:
- Episode 63: Some Must Carry On
- Zeke's comment is humorously apt given the sheer length of episodes between the last main story episode and this one. The comments regarding it are even more so:Zeke von Genbu, BRINGER OF CHAOS: Finally. You took your sweet time.
Elenna123: Well you see, we took a bit of a side trip in order to develop an entire musical career...
Kriss James: Fact Check: True.
Trigspro789: Zeke you have NO idea.
Watery21: when the game is calling you out for doing side quests.
- This becomes funnier when he reveals just how long he was there:Zeke von Genbu, BRINGER OF CHAOS: Ive been waiting here for three whole days already.
El-Zed-Ar's Dee-Es: Nia: "I've been waiting for a week to get rescued, Shellhead!"
Soren Sharp: I think it's been a lot longer than three days...
JediWilli: Try three weeks lmao.
ArvisPresley: Me: jeez, ONLY three days? When did you get there...
Im sorry, Emile, but i will believe you planned this just for this and i refuse to believe anything else 😂
- Chugga attempts to go for a Chain Attack on Zeke... unfortunately he's now so overleveled compared to him (his average party level is mid 40s, while Zeke is only Level 35) and does so much damage that he just barely fails to pull off the Chain Attack. This in itself isn't that funny... until one realizes he likely would have been able to do it if he hadn't done so many sidequests that resulted in him being so overleveled by this point.
- Chugga gives a cookie vendor the Kiara voice again.
- Chugga cracks up at the names of some of Indol's salvaging rewards, particularly the Titanic Coccyx. And before you think that's just because of the first part of the word, he then proves that he does know what it actually is, and it's just as funny.Chugga: A titantic butt-bone! (Beat while he calms down.) What even is their creativity with the naming here?
- Chugga ends up accidentally saying blasphemy about cathedral choirs.
- While talking about his time in the pre-release of the game in Indol, he notes how much the bugginess caused the game to crash, one instance in particular causing him to lose 3 hours of gameplay due to not having saved, and thus having to redo the entire Leftherian Archipelago (and making him loathe Confiscator Jimmy even more).
- After he talks about the above, he finds Foorara again... and the Nopon's shortness makes him unable to focus the camera on him at first. Fridge Logic kicks in by the fact that he was somehow behind a wall that had to be broken down to get to him.
- Chugga ends up wondering why the game just doesn't call Ichthyology "Fishology" instead of the more complicated term while setting up his Merc group for an Indol Mission. Then he hears Vess' proclamation and responds accordingly:
- Chugga ends up talking to an anti-Blade NPC named Zayri, who believes Blades are the cause of the world's problems. While in range of Mythra.
- Chugga's absolutely absurd reaction to awakening Gorg. This is made even funnier because just prior to him getting the Rare Blade, he noted that Indol was supposedly a place where your chances of getting a Rare Blade were higher, and stating that this wasn't true at all.
- Zeke's comment is humorously apt given the sheer length of episodes between the last main story episode and this one. The comments regarding it are even more so:
- Episode 64: Reaching to the Choir
- Chugga once again giving one of the child female Gormotti his terrible impression of Kiara's voice. Though at least this time he stops himself.
- And then he raises his "concern" that Mellica, the girl in question and the sidequest giver, is going to sing for people.
- Chugga is just about to talk to the next quest NPC when night falls...and the NPC in question disappears right in front of him.
- Chugga wastes a few seconds trying to stand on the guardrail in front of the next quest NPC Beqqa, only to end up floating in midair with Rex's shins partially through the rails.Chugga: Ouch! Look at his shins, oooough!
- And then Tora and Poppi start swimming around in the water behind Rex despite having been the ones to ask Beqqa what was going on to begin with.
- Chugga notes that he had to run all the way back to Alba Cavanich to get Poppi QT's favorite dessert, when they were less than 50 feet away from the Sanctum.
- Chugga takes a screenshot of Rex's spread crotch when he lays down on his reserved bed, which comes completely out of nowhere in the middle of an otherwise serious scene.
- Chugga once again giving one of the child female Gormotti his terrible impression of Kiara's voice. Though at least this time he stops himself.
- Episode 65: The Man Who Climbed The Tree
- Chugga almost immediately after the end of last episode's cutscene starts searching for something to loot from the rooms in the scene, frankly wondering if it's somehow going to end up being in the last room after he finds nothing in most of them. Guess what happens?
- After the cutscene with Amalthus and praising his character design, Chugga admits that Amalthus' English Dub voice is one of the top candidates for voices he'd want to read a bedtime story to him.
- Almost immediately after another cutscene when Amalthus tells the party to head to Temperantia...Chugga: We don't go do what Amalthus tells us, we turn around and we talk to him again.
- Episode 66: Temperantia Tantrum
- After the first cutscene in the episode, Chugga can only be excited for one reason:Chugga: Some of you might have already seen this coming, but it doesn't make it any less exciting to have the greatest party member of all at our side... TURTERS!
(An image of Turters moves about on the screen)
- He then proceeds to show a close up of Turters' model from the front, and refers to Zeke (the real party member) as the Turtersmobile.
- Chugga also derives some humor from the fact that Zeke's Luck Stat is actually lower than the original lowest (Rex) despite Zeke being 3 levels higher.
- Chugga also ends up being mildly disappointed that the Purple Lightning Dreamsmasher (Zeke's sword) is actually just called Big Bang Edge.
- "The Eye of Shining Justice is Throbbing!"Chugga: I'm so happy for you.
- The fact that Chugga gives Zeke the Eyepatch as an equip item.
- Chugga ends up putting Zeke on the "Tora diet" of Tasty Sausage, only for every Blade on Zeke's roster (which includes Pandoria and Poppibuster) to end up having it as their favorite pouch item, causing it to take longer than he expected.
- The fact that in the middle of the urgent situation at Temperantia, Chugga instead almost immediately goes to a new salvage point to show it off.
- Not too long after, Zeke's bad luck appears once again when an Aligo gets fished up along with the salvage. It gets worse as while Chugga is explaining Zeke's strengths in regards to statuses like Launch, he gets launched during the fight.
- During the fight against Jin, Chugga tries to use a Break Steam Explosion... only for nearly all of Brighid's attacks to miss. It also causes a rather humorous image of her flailing her arms around while Jin evades, with no sounds due to the lack of damage contact.
- After the first cutscene in the episode, Chugga can only be excited for one reason:
- Episode 67: Ceasefire
- In the middle of the otherwise mostly serious Chapter, Chugga cannot help but note the error in regards to Mythra being out with Rex having Pyra's sword.
- After more tense cutscenes and Amalthus directing the party to Tantal, Chugga immediately sets about to giving Hector (the guy next to Amalthus) the patented Chugga muffled voice.
- Chugga's reaction to Tora's sick burn (which is identical to his reaction to Muimui back in Mor Ardain):
- Episode 68: Who's Leaving Anyone?
- In response to Chugga's interesting voice for the Nopon Mololo, Tom Fawkes had this to say:Tom Fawkes: I think Emile misread Mololos name as stage directions for how to do his voice. Mololo = More Low Low.
Rexaura888: I thought he was just doing a Mojo Jojo impression.
- Chugga's muffled voice for Thiedoro is so ridiculously muffled that it's actually near impossible to understand what he's saying without the text on-screen. This keeps going on for most of the people he runs into... until he talks to Yvalle, whose talk about Fan La Norne's melancholy behavior prior to her death ends up making Chugga switch to a normal voice.
- Chugga's range of reactions to getting Godfrey as the first Rare Blade pull on Zeke.
- Chugga ends up being very confused as to why Tex is up on the top of the tent, and jumps down... only to get clothes-lined by a random rope on the way down.
- He then attempts to talk to the Phonex (fox creature) using Nim... only to fail because Mòrag isn't in the party at the moment.
- After a tense cutscene revealing that Bana is planning to attack the summit, the lighthearted Quest acceptance sound kicks in.
- A pair of Ardainian Soldiers appear to be doing a fistbump in the background, which the text Chugga puts in notices as he talks to one of the Quest NPCs who ends up having one of the few useful tidbits of information after the patriotism-tinged rantings of the previous ones.
- Chugga's progressive annoyance with the patriotism/nationalism tinged rantings of several of the NPCs, especially after the relatively useful and saner ones from earlier.
- The team (sans Mòrag) is discussing how Bana might try to poison the food at the summit, and Gramps suggests that's the most likely route, since the VIPs are unlikely to be preparing their own food. Pyra then adds that she'd like to see Mòrag and Brighid try to cook a banquet, seemingly forgetting that she saw them try to do just that in a previous sidequest. Thankfully, Chugga didn't forget them.Mòrag: Hellfire!
- In response to Chugga's interesting voice for the Nopon Mololo, Tom Fawkes had this to say:
- Episode 69: Denial
- The Black Comedy pun in the episode's title, if you know what happens in this part, (De-Nial) along with the thumbnail. Despite the serious tone of the episode, Chugga knew what he was doing for Episode 69.
- In another bit of dark humor, Chugga calls a section of the Titan Battleship the "Nia Trauma Wing" due to their similar layouts and basis to the ship she was captured in.
- During the fight with the Tirkin chefs, Chugga recounts how Masae Anela thought she chose the wrong options, and how she felt like such an asshole for beating up the Tirkin, much to Chugga's amusement. Then Chugga notes that there's just a Tirkin in the background apparently cheerleading for some reason.
- The revelation that Giga Rosa was designed with a diaper under the skirt in concept art... despite being a giant robot.
- Chugga gets very confused when trying to use Pyra in the Overkill Chain Attack due to her portrait being greyed out... only for the game to glitch out and use Mythra instead.
- Episode 70: A Ripe New Frontier!
- Chugga praises Zeke for his overall solid strengths regarding most Blades (with the exception of Twin Rings)... while in the background, every Core Crystal that Zeke opens only gets nothing but common Blades. While somewhat mitigated by one Earth Ether Cannon Blade being surprisingly good, it gets followed up by one with an absolutely abysmal set of abilities for a 3 Crowned Blade.Chugga: Increased damage to insects?!
- The text for the quest of "A Ripe New Frontier":
- Chugga finds it amusing how Zeke only ever calls himself the Zekenator around new people.
- Chugga after some debate decides to buff up Pandoria with a new Core Chip to increase her abilities, leaves the menu... and then realizes he forgot to buff up Boreas.
- The next stage in the sidequest has Chugga needing to get collectibles from Temperantia... and the collection point being right there in the Garrison makes it seem like the party's essentially stealing from the soldiers to sell their own stuff back to them.
- Chugga's reaction to the Walnut Grape collectible:Chugga: Players of the Definitive Edition will not understand the horrors of the Walnut Grape.
- He then gets sidetracked by the NPC named Hamoosah, which sounds like a dance according to him.
- Chugga gets told by Snififi that the soldiers don't want to tell him why they won't let him get the Metal Brooches. Chugga decides to test this by having Tora speak to the soldiers, who tell him freely why (Nasty monsters on the coast where the items are located). Chugga's conclusion?Chugga: It isn't because they think it's too dangerous for a Nopon; they just didn't like him.
- While Chugga gushes about Brighid, Boreas, and Finch sharing the same voice actress and managing to keep them distinct from each other being impressive, he tries to avoid aggroing a level 62 Zeoth Serprond. He fails and runs away screaming.
- Chugga tries out the Salvage Point of Triedge Island, noting that he feels like he's making a horrible mistake. Guess what happens right afterwards?
- Things only get worse: Chugga not only apparently forgot to buff up Seimei, the Common Earth Ether Cannon Blade that he got earlier, meaning that Seimei does pitiful damage, but he also has the misfortune of being knocked off the island he was fighting the Squood on due to it using Tentacle Storm, and can't figure out where everyone else is while he tries to get back.
- "Nia, Nia, NIA, NIA! What are you doing!? Get the - your Blade is stuck on top of a tentacle! ...Sentences I never thought I would say EVER in life!"
- Chugga praises Zeke for his overall solid strengths regarding most Blades (with the exception of Twin Rings)... while in the background, every Core Crystal that Zeke opens only gets nothing but common Blades. While somewhat mitigated by one Earth Ether Cannon Blade being surprisingly good, it gets followed up by one with an absolutely abysmal set of abilities for a 3 Crowned Blade.
- Episode 71: Judicium's Legacy
- Chugga admits that Hamoosah (the Ardainian Soldier mentioned last episode) sounds like something that would be said by Jar Jar Binks as he eats a leg of ham.Chugga Binks: Hm, I'm gonna eat some hamoosah!
- While trying to talk to the quest NPC Ismet, Boreas keeps getting in the way due to his huge size.
- While gearing up to talk about Elements and their overall ranking according to him and Enel, he ends up aggroing a Level 58 Marauder Laia... who proceeds to decimate Tora and then the rest of the party. Chugga's reaction to a quote Zeke says it best:Chugga: Heard Zeke say something about clean up there. I guess he's hoping somebody will scrub his guts off of the rocks.
- While talking about the Elements, Chugga accidentally goes to the menu right as a monster attacks him, allowing him to escape the fight.
- While ranking the Light Element as being B Rank due to the scarcity of Light Blades in the base game and having limited routes, Chugga finds one implication amusing:Chugga: Though I do kinda like the idea that Mythra only works well with herself.
- Chugga freaks out a bit at seeing a Level 90 Deimos Sauros so close to him, only to transition into rambling about how much he doesn't like how a punny aspect of their name from the original game was changed. However...
- Chugga ends up really panicking when during a fight against a lower leveled monster and ranking Ice as the worst element in the game, a Level 92 Deimos Sauros ends up sneaking up on him.Chugga: EEEUAAAAAAGH! You're a fan of Ice, aintcha big boy! No no no no, get away, get away, get away, get away! I'm so sorry, I know you're Ursula's biggest fan, in more senses than one! How could I say such terrible things about best girl!?
- Chugga tries to infiltrate Jagron's Citadel to snag some Disc-One Nuke core chips with what he calls "S-Tier sneakity-sneak-sneaking" (did Riki come up with that line?). The problem? He's using the tallest and loudest Driver in the game besides Vandham, with the biggest Blade in the game, to boot. He does well at first, but he forgets which outcropping the chest is on and predictably he gets caught and either chased out or wiped several times. Chugga realizes in post (and Enel points out in the comments) that had he put Tora in the lead, it would have gone a lot easier as the enemies' sight lines would have gone right over Tora's head. The one benefit of having Zeke in the lead is hearing him say "Oh piss off, mate!" (speaking for all of us) when he gets aggro'd.
- One long string of highlights:Chugga: We can easily handle [unearthing the treasure chest] with WulFRIIIIIC!
(Grievous Clive spots him)
Chugga: Ha, "frick" is right! Oh no!
Zeke: (draws aggro from another enemy on the way out) Oh, You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!!
(four seconds later)
Zeke: You guys can... clean up here...
Chugga: Ouch, he farted me to death.
Chugga: Wow, the sunsets around here are gorgeous, and I wouldn't have seen this! It's like my death had meaning!
Chugga: I am sending the unluckiest Driver in Alrest to go take care of this. I'm just asking for trouble, aren't I?
Chugga: (getting chased out again by Grievous Clive) The heck?! This is—anyone who tells me this is not a horror game—oh nooooooo!
- One long string of highlights:
- Chugga's semi-sheepish apology to Godfrey, Perun, Gorg and various other Blades when Aegaeon's Core Crystal is suddenly declared ready to use, due to them being shunted aside along with the many other Rare Blades for explanation and exploration because Aegaeon was more important.
- Near the end of the episode, Chugga becomes very bewildered at the implication of Poppibuster's response to Poppi Mk. II's comment during their Affinity Chart gains.
- Chugga admits that Hamoosah (the Ardainian Soldier mentioned last episode) sounds like something that would be said by Jar Jar Binks as he eats a leg of ham.
- Episode 72: Hero of the Nopon
- During the intro, the game glitches out in odd ways that results in the texture looking green, much to Chugga's confusion.
- Chugga explains that he held off on doing Merc Missions for the last few parts because he didn't want Electra going "Hey, I'm cute!" in the middle of Fan dying.
- Chugga's suppressed amusement at Tora's thorough lack of tact in some of the conversations in Indol after Fan's death.
- The... interesting Australian/Southern accent Chugga gives to the Phonex Tex.Chugga: The things animals would say if you could actually talk to them.
- He later on says that he was "Hooked on Phonex" due to trying to talk to every Phonex in Indol.
- While talking to Nax (the other Indoline Phonex Chugga comes across), Adenine plays with the book chained to her collar, bouncing it off her rear like it's a ball or a hackey-sack.
- Adenine accidentally outdoes Tora in terms of sheer insensitivity when she asks to make a study of the grief of the NPC Thorben after Fan's death.
- After the eating contest, Chugga wastes no time in pointing out the rather unimpressive grand prize:Chugga: Imagine entering a burger eating contest, and your prize is more burgers.
- He also wastes no time (in the quest subtitles in the upper right) lampshading the possible additional evidence of his Boreas theory.
- Boreas ends up stealing a statue from somewhere during his temper tantrum, with the party having to return it to the owner. The comments say it best:Cheyenne Oliver: The notion of the party lugging around a life-size statue while skip traveling amuses me.
- In one of his more embarassed moments, Chugga admits that he somehow failed to notice that the Strength Stat, which he claimed in a previous episode wasn't available, was actually visible on the stats the whole time right in front of him.
- In another embarassing moment, directly after Chugga heads to the first quest location, he tries to find a way around the mobs... only to foolishly aggro all of them and resulting in his death.
- Continuing the trend of insensitive things occurring to/being done by the party, this episode centers on Boreas' sidequest, which involves a plot to steal Emperor Niall's underwear. Which Mòrag helps the party with. It is being done after Niall was brought back from the dead. The comments wasted no time pointing this out.MR. X: Okay, just to get this straight, Niall just DIED and WAS BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE and then Mòrag just waltzes in and STEALS HIS UNDERWEAR.
FalconSebben: I like to think at the end of the quest, Mòrag would be sitting there with the strongest alcohol they serve in Alrest muttering 'I had to steal my brothers underwear' to herself.
- Funnily enough, Chugga doesn't even comment on this after the cutscene for said quest is over, instead saying that Mòrag would be the kind of person who'd like bad jokes, but would be too cool to say them under normal circumstances. Then again, his reaction after being given the choice to have Mòrag steal her brother's underwear personally instead of Boreas is hilarious in itself.
- To add even more humor during the cutscene, an NPC is literally sitting right on top of Pyra the entire time. Some comments took notice:Andrew Bayer: 27:35 Hey, only Rex is allowed to sit on Pyra's lap! Begone you imposter!
- Chugga (voicing over Yumyum) only has this to say in response to being beaten twice:
- Freeze-Frame Bonus and a half. When Yumyum is lockpicking the Treasure Trove, he mentions how he's peeved over the fact that his biggest rival, "has to be such a thick oaf". Once he says that, there's a single frame... of Jumney's drawing of RosaJon as a Dark Magician Girl.
- Chugga admits that as much as he likes Boreas in-game, he'd be an absolute nightmare in real life, if not due to his biology or that he'd probably eat anyone who tries to keep him full into bankruptcy, but just simply because he's so adorable looking yet there is always the risk of falling into his second mouth from trying to hug him.
- Episode 73: Our Daily Bread
- The episode can be summed up like this:The Baconator: On this episode, we get to see how Kasandra is literally the Chugga blade, due to her focus on luck.
- The start of the episode has an old lady shoving Kasandra out of the way.
- Chugga gives Nia a Love Source with certain Blades equipped for the episode's quests. Vess' fills out just fine. Finch's... is barely a few thousand points away from filling up after the Love Source, much to Chugga's chagrin.DigiMaster555: I'd like to think that Finch just forgot to gain that last bit of Trust she needed.
- Kasandra's obliviousness to the issue at hand is lampshaded by the comments:Kasandra: "I wonder what the problem is?"
Nathan Gist: DO YOU NOT SEE THE GIANT ARMU IN THE STOREFRONT!?!?
- Chugga's own reaction is pretty funny too:Chugga: Man, I just bought ownership of this store, and already a cow falls on it!
- Chugga recounts his bizarre experience regarding this quest. Namely, how somebody told him that the quest was a parody of a terrible Naruto episode where he goes around trying to get bread and nothing else... except Chugga searched it up and never found it, despite him recalling that he had seen said episode. He concludes that it might have been a false memory based on a weird hodgepodge recollection of Naruto's notorious filler in early episodes at the time. He actually asked about it back in Twitter in 2019 long before this episode.
- Chugga narrowly misses a run-in with Territorial Rotbart on the way to meeting Kupon. Now that would have been unlucky!
- After Kasandra's misfortune kicks in, Chugga letting out out a particularly impressive scream for the Nopon's voice and Mòrag's dry humor, Chugga tries to burn off the giant tree branch... only to fail because Roc doesn't have enough Wind Mastery.Chugga: Wow. He's inept at even this much... Roc, can you do anything bud?
- Chugga also lampshades how unsafe the method of removing the branch is, only to dismiss it as the Nopon just getting scorched eyebrows at worst.
- Chugga gets amused at the idea of the fairly tall Otto being kidnapped by the knee-high Tirkin.
- Chugga admits to being rather perplexed at the idea of having a reputation for being lucky, citing his life of getting prizes and winning contest raffles, and overall anyone in his immediate group calling him lucky. Not only does his mother find this incredibly funny due to her saying this years before anyone else, some comments snark about this hard:Chugga: "I don't think I'm that lucky."
thedespiseduser: So says the man who got a shiny in his Crystal playthrough and a Groudon in a low catch-rate ball in Emerald, the notorious Mario Party luck, TRG and Masae joint playthroughs alike, especially the TAS level clock minigame moment. Not to mention the incredibly lucky drops, including the two magic frying pans in Earthbound.
The only thing he's really missing now is the hardest drawn rate blade. Though considering Chugga, I give him a week before he gets the second hardest.
- He also notes that part of why he relates to Kasandra is that there is a theory that in reality he isn't that lucky, it's that he basically curses everyone else to have worse luck than he does and thus is perceived as lucky by comparison. Something that he notes might be the case given that around the same time he has good luck, his friends tend to have extremely bad luck.
- Chugga is thoroughly amused at how posh the Tirkin sound compared to the human party.
- This comment sums up the Mayne Driver.FalconSebben:
Diary entry of a Mayne Driver:
Today I died again.
- After Kupon gets crushed under a tree (again), and the cutscene where Kasandra tries to negotiate with the Tirkin (again), Chugga fights the Tirkin (again) and tries to start things off... only to get toppled less than a few seconds into the fight. Then bizarrely enough, after he kills all of them, they suddenly respawn for no reason, much to Chugga's confusion.
- Drakelord56 adds their own little theory in regards to Kasandra:Drakelord56: Pretty sure Kasandra's cursed mask picks up on her subconscious thoughts and acts upon them on her behalf:
- Kasandra's thinking of Lucky Dawn Bread, mask picks up on a more greedy inner impulse of "all for me, none for anyone else"
- Kasandra meets Kupon for first time since awakening, masks recognizes him (somewhat evidenced by Vess' Heart 2 Heart) and doesn't like his attitude.
- Kasandra tries to negotiate with Tirkin but doesn't take violence off the table, mask is like 'Nah. Blood for the blood god!"
- Kasanadra sees Kupon under attack by Tirkin, mask decides to try and kill two birds with one stone because it holds grudges against people less than polite to her.
- Kasandra tries to negotiate with Tirkin a second time, mask is like "Second verse, same as the first!"
- The episode can be summed up like this:
- Episode 74: Bouncing Back
- The last section of the video is labelled "Aegaeon's Special Corner he sits in".
- Umon, in his death feast, says he'll put Tora's name on his tab before he jumps into the Cloud Sea. Tora's response? ...Euthanasia by Wulfric.
- Chugga goes to refine what he thought was a Hunter's Chemistry III, only to realize that it is a Humanoid Hunter III.
- Chugga pinned a comment about an alternate event in the titular quest.Issac Burton: If you are playing as Morag, she will say, allow us to assist, and Umon will respond by saying Meh meh! Friends will help throw Umon over the cliff?
- Episode 75: Bladies Night!
- Chugga cuts off a Blade's affinity chart quote with perfect timing, again.Gorg: Another di-
- "Sun shines, grass grows... and Pandoria wants Zeke to give her some meat."
- Both times Chugga sleeps at an inn, Nia and Mòrag end up doing something silly. In Uraya, they both pop in in midair on either side of Rex, making it look like they leapt out of the shadows. In Mor Ardain, both spawn on top of the reception counter, alongside their Blades, and just stand there, unmoving. Chugga wonders whether there's some kind of fumes in the girls' rooms.
- Chugga being pleasantly surprised (loudly) at Yumyum the Burglar being at Mor Ardain's hot springs.
- Chugga cuts off a Blade's affinity chart quote with perfect timing, again.
- Episode 76: The Secret of Nim
- Following Tora's shock at Mòrag being a girl, Nim makes Mòrag feel even more inferior.Nim: If Ardanians catch them, they might eat them, or worse yet, skin them! We must hurry to their rescue!
Mòrag: ...Nim, you're exaggerating again. Please relax. The Ardanian Armed Forces pose no threat to Phonexes.
Nim: You can't know that!
Chugga: She's kind of their boss!? Why does nobody know who Mòrag is?! She's such a big celebrity when you first hear about her, and everyone's just like, "Who're you?"
- Later on...
- The end card has Nim making a damn ahegao face. Especially jarring with it being shown over Indol's religious chorus.
- Following Tora's shock at Mòrag being a girl, Nim makes Mòrag feel even more inferior.
- Episode 77: Journey to Tantal
- The intro having Zeke and Gorg do synchronized poses.
- Chugga, controlling Zeke, does what Zeke knows best: having a cliffside collapse from underfoot, and subsequently falling to his death.
- "You shoulda known better, Pandoria, than to hide your crush behind a Blade who has Keen Eye Level 3."
- Episode 78: Bonsoir, Theosoir...
- A bit of a case of Hilarious in Hindsight.
- Retroactive clarification has never been so goofy.
- Episode 79: The Audience
- The intro:Chugga: (as Adenine puts her hands on her non-existant hips) This is how I'd put my hands on my hips... IF I HAD ONE!
- Chugga's reaction to Crossette going to blow up a bully for hiding a girl's house keys.
- It takes only three tries and a misclick onto Normal Difficulty, but Chugga managed to perfect the new Tiger! Tiger! level. ...His reaction is about as appropriate as you can get.
- By complete accident, Chugga manages to unlock a new mission for Electra by talking to Fortis, even though he should know the the party are prisoners. Yes, Chugga is just as amazed as we are.
- Chugga chucks out a maxed-out Rare Core Crystal on Nia... and ends up pulling out Floren.
- The intro:
- Episode 80: For The Sake of This World
- Chugga is on his way to making Harusa, a Common Blade, into a Memetic Badass. ...But not before making another crack at Jar Jar Binks.Chugga Binks: Meesa like you, Harusa!
- Chugga manages to answer a long-running rumor in the Xenoblade community, that the Tantalese Knights are voiced by Shulk's actor, Adam Howden. Chugga got in contact with him directly, and Adam confirmed... he did. And exactly how does Chugga segue into talking about this?Zeke: I'm really feeling it!
- Chugga is on his way to making Harusa, a Common Blade, into a Memetic Badass. ...But not before making another crack at Jar Jar Binks.
- Episode 81: Handling a Boy's Turtle!
- Chugga once again being distracted by sidequests, this time by an herbalist named Cannadea, who claims that her medicine is for the greater good, even with Genbu being on the brink of collapse. ...The comments speak for themselves.RWBYraikou888: Zeke: You tell me where the Omega Fetter is, woman! We are talking about the greater good!
Cannadea: Greater good!? I am an herbalist! This medicine is the greatest "good" you are ever gonna get!
Adham Barbour: Cannadea is conspiring with Toran in order to sabotage the playthrough, they know that Emile would never turn down a side quest and in doing so by the time he's completed it Tantal would sink to the bottom of the cloud sea.
- Chugga needs to speed up the clock for a certain event... only for Genbu to sink into the Cloud Sea, visualized by the screen getting coated in a wave. Oh, and Mòrag screaming.Chugga: Aw, man! I skipped to a time outside the 3 hours; now we're all dead! Man, I really liked this country!
- Chugga runs around picking up collectibles dropped by a Blue-Eyed Korbin, but as one is dangling off the edge of a cliff, he slides off to his death trying to pick it up.
- Chugga once again being distracted by sidequests, this time by an herbalist named Cannadea, who claims that her medicine is for the greater good, even with Genbu being on the brink of collapse. ...The comments speak for themselves.
- Episode 82: Crossing the Gorg
- The Blade of Sordai comes back to bite Chugga in the ass.Chugga: I'm not saying y'all look the same... 'cause I don't wanna get punched.
Sordai: That's very kind of you!
Chugga: (laughs) Oh my go-ho-hod! (proceeds to corpse) And the fact that it was a Common Blade that said it, and they all look the same!
- "It's not truly 100% unless you-... (ground collapses)"
- Chugga has a lot of Fun with Acronyms when going over Gorg's skills.
- Chugga's reaction to Gorg's pose when he activates Splash Hazard.
- Zeke's bad luck with Core Crystals is really getting to Chugga's head.
- The ultimate Brick Joke for those who know the Xeno franchise all too well.
- After having to respawn from taking fall damage, Chugga is killed while going down the slide, causing Rex's ragdoll to fly off during the fade out.
- An accidental zoom-in on Splash Hazard causes Gorg's left leg to despawn, making it look like he accidentally cut it off with his own ax.Mòrag: What!?
- As if doing what Valak Mountain did wasn't enough, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 went to liberty of adding a second slide. ...Which Chugga promptly slides off of in the wrong direction.
- The end card shows Gorg and Rex looking like they're the descendants of Joseph and Caesar.
- The Blade of Sordai comes back to bite Chugga in the ass.
- Episode 83: Write or Wrong?
- It's become standard for Chugga at this point, but exactly how does he try to replicate Cannadea's evil laugh? ...With his Monokuma impression, of course.
- ...What's the age of consent in Alrest, again?
- At the conclusion of said sidequest...Chugga: (under his breath) Something, something, better love story than Twilight.
- The section of the video where he talks about the instant kill debug codenote is titled "Corvin, crossing the field, and spontaneous human combustion".
- The reason Chugga waited until now to show off the exploit that lets you survive any fall damage is to prove that it is impossible, even for speedrunners using debug exploits, to get from the Ether Accelerator room in Theosoir to the Omega Fetter within the three in-game hours that Zeke says the party has. The best that has been done to Chugga's knowledge is six hours. Zeke is terrible at maths!
- Episode 84: Tender-Hearted Beast
- Episode 85: Wounds
- In attempting to talk to a Nopon for the Twelve Brother-Sisterpon sidequest, Chugga somehow manages to trigger the next story cutscene.
- Chugga may have been harsh to Patroka when they first met, but Akhos...Chugga: Akhos, I gotta say it. You are such... such... a smarmy ass! You are the meanest sunna bitch this side of Torna, and... I hate to admit how hot you are! I'm not even swaying that way! And like, I-I can see it! I'm sorry, but he is! And, just... I hate to admit that so much; it makes him so much worse, and you just wanna smack him so much harder for it!
- Episode 86: The Doll in Sight of the Throne
- Just like with Vandham's death, the episode is entirely serious and emotional, but luckily, the comments are here to save the day once again.ShipQueen28: I have a feeling there is going to be A Lot of Sadness in this video
Luxin: 6:08 "that pain's nothing compared to what Pyra must be feeling right now"
sorry to break it to you Nia but you just hurt Rex, she IS feeling that pain now, on top of everything else
Mestayoku: Rex: Gets slapped and pushed by Nia and Brighid
Pyra: what the hell was that?
The Baconator: Alright let's go save Pyra right now!
Chugga: you mean 40 episodes of side quests?
Chugga: S I D E Q U E S T S
- Just like with Vandham's death, the episode is entirely serious and emotional, but luckily, the comments are here to save the day once again.
- Episode 87: Open Your Eyes
- Little Miss Yandere finally has her wish granted.Azami: Together, at last!

- Little Miss Yandere finally has her wish granted.
- Episode 88: Tantal-izing Prospects

- A jab at his own singing voice, or projecting the derision of it onto Falala? The world may never know...Chugga: (slowly pans camera over Nopon fiercely clapping for Falala) ...To each their own, Buddy.
- The way Chugga deals with a common fandom misconception that causes people to not like Tora.Poppi QT: Masterpon, Poppi have small request to make.
Tora: Meh-meh? What this about? Could it be... Poppi eyeing up secret Tasty Sausage stash of Tora?
Poppi: Masterpon can keep sausages.
Tora: Not even little bit interested?!
Chugga: ...He's 12, guys.
- Chugga sure knows how to replicate Poppi's attitude.
- Chugga breaks down upon noticing one of the effects of the Jeweled Billiard Balls is -0.00% Affinity Loss. Bug, oversight, or a very weird mechanic?

- Episode 90: Give a Finch, Take a While
- Chugga decides the best way to get revenge on Bana is to steal all the gold stashed in his bedroom and then donate it to Fonsett Village, laughing all the way.
- "D'aw, I'm nothing but a lot of talk. You're the one with the sticky fingers!"
- Now, there's a joke nobody's made in a long time.
- Before doing research for the LP, Chugga misremembered Finch's quest as being about Finch accepting favors from people, forgetting what said favors were, causing the group to go back to the people to remind her of what they were doing. Thus meaning that Chugga hated Finch for years because he couldn't remember what happened.
- Chugga's reaction to there being a Tirkin (bird-people) named Omulette.Chugga: Yikes, that'd be like if you were a human and your first name as "Eat Babies".

- Episode 91: The Bana Saga
- Ah, the sweet taste of revenge...
- If Bana is Dave Chappelle, then Poppi is Rick James.Chugga: (sees Poppi jumping up and down) Aww, she's skippin' on his couch! Gotta get those shoeprints all over it so it'll be filthy the next time he sees it! Possibly have some holes in it, too.
- Seems as though Vandham left us with one last parting gift from beyond the grave. ...Shame that Vale ended up going on Zeke, who never even met the guy.
- Praxis, Melia, Marie, Pyrrha, for cripe's sake, Chugga. Who's your real waifu?Chugga: And how could I say no to her wanting desserts?
Praxis: It was a snap!

- "Well, with nothing in Tora's house, now it's time to hit the town!" ...If by "town", you mean the Mayne Driver.
- It's Catchphrase time!
- "You know what they saynever piss off a sociopath!"
- Patriotic Gavyth resorts to using a Blowdown Art... that causes Rex to fall off the balcony and land on his head. Are you sure the Art is called Hazy Moon, or is it HaC-Moon?

- Episode 94: Brionac Awoken
- When Mòrag is told about the anti-imperialist group Brionac, how does she respond? "Is something the matter?"
- There's been plenty of Gameplay and Story Segregation thus far, but this?
- The Brionac quest results in three subquests, all given at the same time. Chugga's quest captions don't quite know what to make of it.Defeat Wiggins: Kill this guy.
Defeat Bhianc: Kill this guy, too.
Defeat Arrohd: I really did an effect for all of these, huh?
- Well, now we know why Chugga opted for Google Play credits on the game when he was falling asleep over iTunes money.
- Was it Masae or Rex who really patented the Stop Talking?
- Chugga goes from being hungry for Brighid's hair... to thirsty for Mòrag's booty.Chugga: I went to go play Tiger! Tiger!, and I was greeted by this sight at the end of it.

- Episode 95: Follow the Money
- The episode starts with Chugga hoping that Pyra is okay wherever she is. Cut to a clip of Pyra's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reveal Trailer.
- My word, Mimikins! Such language!Nia: Cheers and stuff.
Vess: Nia... Can't you say thank-you properly?
Chugga: "Thank you" doesn't have a hyphen in it, mooom!
- Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It's thinking...
- And just when you think the game hasn't taken enough offence...Chugga: From there, it's just a straight drop down to your doom. (Rex lands on the bridge and causes it to collapse)
- Chugga claims that it's even funnier the second time... and he's not wrong, per splash text for Nia and Tora that make it look like they watched Rex pull off a stunt straight out of Jackass.
- You know how Chugga said during the Garfont Merc recruiting that Nopon are either incredibly tragic or obnoxiously greedy? ...Class B felony inbound.
- Is home where the heart is, or does money make the world go 'round? Let's ask Rex that one.Chugga: We got Level 5 in the Argentum Trade Guild?! From all that trading?! That's our first Level 5 out of anyone! I can't believe a bunch of smelly, ol' Nopon in a boat love me more than you jerks!
- Chugga wants to give the fans what they want and listen to the music of Fonsett Village... but not even 15 seconds in, and Perceval already spoils the mood by pointing at Rex's arse.
- Episode 96: The Crucible
- Chugga starts off by giving the rundown on why Spirit Crucible Elpys is one of the hardest and most hated levels in the game: all your Blades except Poppi and her variants are stuck at low affinity and no Specials beyond level 1. Healing is reduced so you have to watch your HP more closely and favor evasion over damage tanking. The enemies are tough even without the added restrictions, and the scenery is mostly gray tunnels. But the worst offence in Chugga's mind? The map layout is mostly a straight line.
- Not into Yanderes, are you, Chugga? Eh, suit yourself. You already spice up your life enough as is.
- Episode 97: A Long Way From Home
- Chugga, you have freed the fandom from the misconception on Tora! "Oh, I wouldn't say freed! More like... under new management."
- If you thought Confiscator Jimmy wasn't silly enough, what is the name of Chugga's favorite Unique Monster? ...Vile Howard.Chugga: I love this thing's name... so much! It's just funny to me! Vile! Howard! I don't know why; the first time I saw it, I busted out laughing! Maybe it's just the name Howard's associated with some kind of bad things 'cause of Howard Stern, or something? I don't really know why, but I've always laughed at this name and found it so funny!
- Well, whaddaya know? Apparently, Nintendo is fine with transformative properties.Chugga: (reads the Common Blade's name) Mugen?! (wheezes) Vile Howard plays M.U.G.E.N, apparently!
- Aww, Chugga's One of Us! ...Too bad the game is overly defensive over a nostalgia-based period.Chugga: I like how Rex's positivity is the thing that came back to help him in the end. That he had a positive impact on everyone's life around him, and that was what came back to help him when he needed it the most. And... I could see this story being called very trope-heavy, I could definitely see that, but... Tropes stick around for a reason! They can be good if they're used to good effect, and I don't think that trope-heavy doesn't necessarily mean bad here. I think that this story, if I had to call it anything, I'd call it a very good portrayal of, just, what friendship is. And I appreciate that so much, 'cause, you have to understand. I grew up in The '90s. Back then, every single kid's show on TV. You know, they would-... (bridge collapses underneath him) AAAAAAAAHHH!!! ...Why, yes! They WERE that terrible!
- Petition to create a new page for Chugga's trope of Lame Family Morals? ...Well, maybe Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has a say in that.Chugga: The thing that drove me over the edge and caused me to name this thing that was the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake. Where, I guess spoilers for this version of the movie; you should never watch it over the Gene Wilder version, but... uh, at the end of the movie, they tack on 10 extra minutes of nothing, where Charlie's like, "I can't move into the factory because I value my family too much," and it's so stupid! It was never an issue! Even in the original book, that his family wouldn't be able to go live with him, and nobody thought he wasn't going to actually accept the factory in the end, because of course he turns right around and does it a few minutes later anyway!
- Tora had some good ones on Muimui and Zeke, but Nia?Zeke: Hey, you too, Nia. Come rest your head on my lap if you like.
Nia: Why don't you rest your head in your arse?
- Well, we know who serves as this game's Melia Antiqua now.Chugga: It's time. I'm going to say the thing. ...Poor Nia!
- Sure does feel good to take out a Spike Urchon, now don'it, Chugga?
- Episode 98: All Kinds
- More a cute moment than funny, but at the start of the video Corvin and Poppi both have their idle animations sync up so that it looks like Poppi is trying to catch the feathers coming off Corvin's cape.
- Chugga has said plenty of times in the past that he's not good at catching music references, but based on his reaction to demolishing the Glamorous Alfred, that might be a lie.Chugga: Probably shouldn't be using Poppi Alpha's specials to get her Critical Counter up more, but it's alright! In fact, it's a gas!
- Episode 99: The Connection
- Episode 100: Eternal Rest
- ...Game, we just went through emotional turmoil. You Make Chugga Sic.
- In Perun's Heart-to-Heart, immediately following a direct encounter with Addam, the option of Perun wanting to meet Addam nets less Affinity points than the option of, "You just like being in pain, don't'cha?"
- In a meta sense, the fact that Episode 100 of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was released on the exact same day as Episode 100 of Xenoblade Chronicles 6 years ago, which was the finale. ...And the LP isn't even over yet.
