    Josh: Hearing Ripley try to silence her rapid breaths and beating heart, and listening to the music slowly build its dissonant chords to an intense peak, and praying to whatever deity is out there that the Alien will not move towards this particular locker, and TRY NOT TO FREAK THE F*CK OUT!

Top 14 Organization XIII Members

  • Josh is just as surprised as everyone else that Demyx is NOT his least favourite member of the Organization.
    Josh: Wait a second! *double-checks list* Why is Demyx not at the bottom [of the list]?! I hate him more than any other character on this list! Ari, I requested a rewrite!
    Aramau: And your request was denied.
    Josh: WHAT?!
    Aramau: Honey, it's your job to be fair and objective. Is he fleshed out more than the other characters?
    Josh: ... Well, sort of, but-
    Aramau: Despite the quality of his battle, was he at least memorable?
    Josh: ... Well, yeah, but-
    Aramau: Is his appearance unique and interesting?
    Josh: *considers this* ... Well, okay, his mullet is a little funny, but-
    Aramau: Doesn't the fact that he's a complete wimp make you interested in how he was able to join the Organization?
    Josh: (Beat) ... Oh, that's just not fair...
    Aramau: Deal with it, sweetheart. *flicks glasses*

Top 10 Worst EA Fails

  • The #2 of the list, the EA Body Count, looks like a Tear Jerker as it is paying tribute to good companies that got bought out by EA and then shut down. But the ending...
    Josh: Please send your condolences to the nearby EB Games... Ooh! Too soon? (awkward grin)

Top 10 Worst Konami Fails

  • After his awesome scathing calling out at the #1 of the list, Josh actually gave credits to Konami that for all his calling out, Konami hasn't done one thing that they usually do when they get called out like this: having the video removed. Which faux-happened in the middle of Josh's compliment.
    Josh: Oh, goddammit!

Top 10 Microsoft Fails

  • Josh wonders who hijacked his script to place puns in the closing parts of numbers 5 (buying Rareware) and 4 (the Kinect).

     My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Reviews 
General

The Ticket Master

  • Near the end of the episode:
    Josh: Wait a minute. Princess Celestia only sent two tickets, when she's fully aware that Twilight has five friends who just might want to attend the biggest celebration of the year? Ok, either Celestia's a very tough teacher, or she's a troll.
    Spike: How come I don't get a ticket to the gala? (burp) "And one for you, Spike."
    Josh: Troll.

Dragonshy

  • It's not uncommon in his MLP reviews to skip the title theme. But when he has Chewie as a collab partner:
    Opening: "My Little Pony - " *screen flies backwards, past Josh, and crashes into a door*
    Josh: *stares between the crashed opening, then back at Chewie* "How did you - ?"
    Chewie: "Don't. Underestimate. The Force."
  • It's quite hilarious how Anthony takes the science of this episode way too seriously. He completely flips out over how horses/ponies wouldn't be able to climb up a cliff that steep and how different horses are from goats.

Look Before You Sleep

  • The many jokes made about Hurricane Sandy being outside his house.
  • "I CAN'T TAKE THE GIRLY!!!!"
  • His reaction to Applejack in a princess costume.
    Josh: I don't know what I should question first; where she got the dress, how she was able to put it on in less than five seconds (beat) or how grotesquely stupid it looks.
  • For every instance of Applejack and Rarity indirectly insulting one another, a clip of Darth Vader plays with one of his famous quotes modified to reflect their lack of subtlety (Josh even refers to him as "Darth Subtlety"). The problem is that it happens so often throughout the episode that Darth eventually gives up and pulls a hilariously out-of-character Screw This, I'm Outta Here!.

Magical Mystery Cure

Double Rainboom

  • Josh's reaction when Rainbow Dash finds herself in Townsville.

Feeling Pinkie Keen

Mmmystery on the Friendship Express

Bridle Gossip

  • Josh finally gets around to reviewing this episode. It has several moments, but most notably the beginning, where he asks various people (including Chewie, The Autarch, and a couple of Hasbro employees) if they have a problem with him doing the review. Just as he's about to say the name of the episode:
    Xain Russell: Hey, Josh, I -
    Xain: *leans away from camera* I... just wanted to say I got your title card done, and I was really looking forward to this review... *yay*hole.
  • When Zecora first speaks:
  • When Twilight dismisses the "Super Naturals" book, Josh says,
    Josh: "So THAT'S where 'Skeptical Twilight' came from. Oh, Xain..
    Xain: "Go to Tartarus!" (Josh smirks)
  • When Spike makes his nicknames for the Mane Six, Josh holds up score cards in response. When Spike comes up with a punny name for Twilight's condition, he gives it a 0.5.
    • And after that, he's informed what Twilight's floppy horn might imply, and does not take it well.

Over a Barrel

Twilight's Kingdom

Hearts and Hooves Day

  • The review starts with a bunch of bronies noticing Josh Scorcher, angry at him from panning Double Rainboom. Cue Yaxety Sax. Josh and Voice of Reason bump into each other (literally), and Voice of Reason's lambasting of Friendship is Witchcraft has HIM get chased as well. During the chase, Josh and Voice stop running in a panicked fashion and calmly ride an escalator to the next floor. Not only does the angry mob follow suit, they happily chat amongst themselves while riding up the escalator. The chase immediately resumes when everyone is at the top. The two run to the latter's hotel room, and jump in, entering the Rift, which causes Josh to take on his Pony OC's form.
    Headshot! +50 xp
  • This:
    Voice of Reason: After the intro, we cut to-
    Josh: Wait, wait, wait, wait. What the heck was that?
    Voice of Reason: I just said "after the intro" and moved on.
    (Beat)
    Voice of Reason: And what where YOU gonna do? Sneeze the intro away?
    (Beat)
    Josh: Maybe...
  • When Sweetie Belle delivers her famous "OH COME ON!" line:
    Voice of Reason: Hey, it's the fandom's reaction to Flash Sentry.
    Josh: Hey, it's the fandom's reaction to PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING.
  • Josh can't take the lovey dovey talk at first, declaring it similar to Generation 3... but then can't help but to laugh at it.
  • Josh riffs on the whole shipping fanbase throughout the video. At one point, Voice of Reason has to hit him with a copy of Super Mario Galaxy 2 to get him to shut up.
    Josh: {dazed} Aren't the fireworks lovely today? {collapses}
    • "Double Kill! +100 xp"
  • At one point, Voice of Reason comments that the whole romance bit reminds him of "Keen on Keane." (A Powerpuff Girls episode that had the Powerpuff Girls have Professor Utonium and Miss Keane get together.) When Josh asks what that is, Voice of Reason says, "It's a Powerpuff Girls-" Cue Josh grabbing a gun, telling Voice of Reason to choose his next words carefully.
  • Right after Cherilee asks the CMC why it looks like she and Big Mac are "getting married at the bottom of a pit", "Let's Get It On" starts playing.
    Josh: Oh, REAL subtle there, Voice!
    Voice of Reason: I swear, it's not me!
  • The ending: Josh leaps through a portal leading back to his couch. However he's still in pony form, but this time in 3D.
    • Made even better by the fact that Voice already knew this would happen, but decided it would be funnier to troll him instead.
    Voice of Reason: I wonder if I should've told him earlier... Eh, this will be funnier!

Swarm of the Century

  • The review opens with his usual greeting while text floats beside him.
    Josh: Hi, this is the Fiery Joker!
    Text: So, you gonna explain why you're not a pony anymore?
    *Beat*
    Josh: Y'know what? No intro. *claps to signal review start*
    Text: HEY WAIT!

Putting Your Hoof Down

  • Upon meeting Mr. Enter, Josh instantly panics because all his collab partners always want to hurt him to make him do the team up. Mr. Enter is totally baffled by this.
  • Their Duck Season/Rabbit Season bit over showing the intro.
  • Josh is happy to get through the review with no abuse, to which Mr. Enter replies that no one really wants to attack Josh right now because he's already pretty much living in his mom's basement. Josh predictably explodes at that to end the episode.
  • Josh speculating that Fluttershy's rant to Rarity and Pinkie Pie is the writer blowing off some steam, then Mr. Enter throwing down a container marked "worms".
    Josh: I mean, it does feel slightly unnatural. It sounds less like Fluttershy is saying true words and it's more the writer blowing off some sort of anger or frustration and using Fluttershy as a mouth piece.
    Mr Enter: Oh—oh—oh, dear. *throws down a container marked "worms".
    Josh: What was that?
    Mr. Enter: Nothing! Pay it no heed! *starts stomping* Oh my god, they're everywhere!
  • An extremely dark example is that, in the description of the review, it gives a link to a type of rabbit stew on allrecipes by Mr. Enter's request. Considering how much he hated how Angel Bunny acted in this episode, it's not hard to guess why he posted that link.
  • Celestia watching Josh through the window.
  • Josh practically gushing over Iron Will. Then his reaction when Iron Will says "I pity the fool" has him laying on his bed with the goofiest smile on his face.

The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well

  • The review opens with him creatively stopping the intro to the show as per usual. Except this time, he breaks into a take on the "When I'm Bored" meme. It's so unexpected that it becomes hilarious.

The Cutie Re-Mark

  • The Sans cosplayer at the beginning.
    you can feel love and tolerance crawling on your back
  • The montage showcasing all the misfortunes that have befallen Josh during his many collabs.
  • Josh is about to skip the intro like he always does, when suddenly, his persona from his Equestria Girls movies reviews bursts in, demanding that he comes with him. The two then get into a Delorian and travel through time. When they arrive, Josh asks why they had to do that. The answer? To skip the intro.
    • Josh even lampshades that this was pointless because just them talking was longer than the intro itself.
  • Just as Josh is about to talk about the Sombra future, Ink Rose comes in requesting to join the review. When Josh says no, she questions why:
    Josh: Because I made sure there'd be no collabs this time. I have built defenses from the Force, hacking, lasers, magic, mobs, and random slapstick generators. And you're not Canadian. You have nothing to coerce me with.
    Ink Rose: (Puppy-Dog Eyes; split-second image of text saying "DEATH TO ALL WHO OPPOSE ME")
  • When Ink Rose explains as to why none of the other villians show up in the Sombra future, it leads to this exchange:
    Josh: (impressed) Wow, that's...actually pretty good. Guess I call you the Queen of Headcanons for a reason.
    Josh: OKAY, MOVING ON!
  • The "Really Twilight?" counter.
  • When Zecora says that "Time is like a river".
    Josh: No it's not! It's an ocean in a storm!
    Ink Rose: Actually, I think it's more like a flat circle...
    Josh: NO! That's a stupid explanation!
    (Hades cackles and disappears)
    Ink Rose: What was that?
    Josh: A nuisance.
  • The Dragon Ball Z recaps.
  • Josh getting increasingly frustrated with Ink Rose debunking his criticisms.
    (talking about Chrysalis)
    Josh: Wait a minute, why did she bother trying to fool them if she had a friggin' army right next to her?
    Ink Rose: She's a manipulator. She probably wanted to take them over the "fun" way.
    Josh: Why must you keep finding holes in my logic?!
  • The two comparing Starlight to Dan.
  • As they're signing off:
    Josh: And it's hard to believe this is actually our first collab considering all the... fanart...
    (swarms of FireRose shipping fanart slowly surrounds him) No... NO! What have I done?! AAAAHHH-

Newbie Dash

  • DaWillstanator enters the review and interrupts Josh's opening monologue about the episode's Broken Base by casually using Josh's shower.
    • An easy-to-miss moment is the fact that Will says Josh is out of bath salts... despite the fact that he was using the shower.
  • How is the intro skipped this time? Rainbow Dash's smile upon learning she has been accepted into the Wonderbolts generates so much hype it blows it up entirely.
  • The "brony tears" gag returns... only this time the tears taste sweet due to them being Tears of Joy from RD's promotion to Wonderbolt.
  • Will and Josh find out that the show not only gave the Wonderbolts a Latin motto, but the meaning is actually accurate. They then proceed to discuss the implications of dead languages in Equestria... only for the two to break down laughing at the idea that the show would explore this further.
  • After Rainbow ends up in a trashcan:
    Josh: Well, she ended up where she belongs.
    (A shouting mob is heard outside the room)
    Will: Do you have any survival instinct?!
    Josh: Comes and goes.
    • And before that, the trash can in question was labeled "waifu".
  • After Josh questions what Spitfire's nickname could be, Will begins whispering into his ear, and a chart on the side of the screen shows Josh's innocence falling from "Angel" to off the bottom of the chart entirely. Josh is subsequently left in a catatonic state.
    Will: I warned him.
  • At the end, they realize that Josh has defended the episode so well, no one cares about his opinion enough to attack him. He begins whimpering like a dog before the explosion.

A Very Minty Christmasnote 

  • The opening sequence, featuring a Star Wars style recounting of why he and Dr. Wolf are doing the review and being forced to do it Silver Quill, including these exchanges:
    Silver Quill: (Evil voice)Hello Joshua, welcome to the review.
    Josh: No, no, no, no, no, I am not playing your sick game, whatever it is.
    Silver Quill: Oh, but it's not my game Joshua, it's yours.
    *Clip of the video explaining the wager he lost.*
    Josh: (Beat) Not Canon?
    Josh: Oh really, Mr. King? What do you call my subscription count?note 
    Silver Quill: The world's biggest pity party.
    *Que Apply cold water to that burn image macro*
    Dr. Wolf: What if we refuse to participate?
    Silver Quill: (Evil Voice) Then I have a second track queued, twenty hours of this.
    *Shows the "Stir-whip-stir-whip-whip-whip-stir" clip from the The Star Wars Holiday Special.*
    Josh/Dr. Wolf: (desperately) We'll do the review. We'll do the review. We'll do the review.
    • The fact that Silver Quill's evil voice is accompanied by a plushie of himself.
    • Josh's anger filled rant fantasizing killing Silver Quill repeatedly, referencing several familiar franchises, and Dr. Wolf telling him to calm down.
  • Really, almost the entire review is filled with funny moments. You can tell just how much pain Josh and Dr. Wolf are experiencing from having to review this movie, and it gives no shortage of opportunities to mock it.
  • The "legal" document Josh puts on screen.
    Josh: So, um... if you all could sign this form that says you won't sue me for lost brain cells, I'd appreciate it.
    The form in question: In consideration of the risk and loss of brain cells while participating in watching "A Very Minty Christmas" (the "Activity"), and as consideration to the rights to participate in the Activity, I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors and is anybody still reading this? Seriously, who among you has the time to sit down, pause this review, and read the whole of a legal waiver just to see if it actually is a legal waiver and not just a bunch of jokes? I don't think anyone does. I bet I could sneak the entirety of the "Bee Movie" script into this "legal document" and not ONE of you would even notice. In fact... According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. There, ya happy? Because that's all of that stupid meme you're getting. Anyway, sign here ____ and here ___.

    I AM VOLUNTARILY KEEPING UP APPEARANCES AND DOING MY BEST TO MAKE THIS LOOK LIKE A LEGIT LEGAL DOCUMENT. THIS WILL ONLY BE ON SCREEN FOR A FEW SECONDS SO IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT I PUT INTO THIS STUPID WORD FILE. AS LONG AS I FORMAT IT RIGHT, IT’LL BE CONVINCING. ANYWAY... DID YOU SEE ROGUE ONE? I DIDN’T LIKE IT. THE CHARACTERS WERE TOO BLAND, DIDN’T REALLY CARE ABOUT THEM. ALTHOUGH I WILL SAY THAT SCENE AT THE END WHERE THE FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER COMES IN AND SAVES THE REBELLION WAS AWESOME. ANYWAY, SIGN HERE________________.
  • Everyone's response to G3!Rainbow Dash saying that you can never have too much of something you love.
    Josh: Alcohol.
    Dr Wolf: Candy.
    Josh: Electricity!
    Dr Wolf: Fast food.
    Josh: Television.
    Josh's editor: Sushi!
    Dr Wolf: Jokes.
    Silver Quill: Alibis!
    (Beat as Josh, Dr Wolf, and Josh's editor all get shocked expressions.)
    Silver Quill: Oh c'mon, don't pretend you don't enjoy it.
  • At the end of the review, when it comes to Silver Quill's turn to say Merry Christmas, Josh promptly launches a nuke at Silver Quill, launching him into the camera during the usual ending of Josh's videos.

Baby Cakes

  • Alex suddenly popping into the review to explain/rant why the scene of Pound Cake crawling on the ceiling is straight up Nightmare Fuel.
    Alex: THEY JUST REFERENCED F*yay*ING TRAINSPOTTING!!!
    • Heck, the whole review could arguably count due to Josh's utter disdain for the episode.

Celestial Advice

  • Antony C's introduction.
    Josh: Hi, this is The Fiery Joker—
    Antony C: BEARD.
    (cut to a clip of a crowd rioting)
    Antony C: BEEEEAAAAAARD!
    (cut to the "MY EYES!" clip from Spongebob Squarepants)
    • Josh's subsequent rant about how 99% of the comments on his most recent videos are mainly about his beard.
  • Josh's utter Squee! when Twilight actually consults Celestia for once.
  • Antony C's joy when it's revealed that there are dragons in this show.
    Antony C: Dragon...Dragonlands?!? There are finally dragons in the show?!?
    Josh: (Giving his best You Have Got to Be Kidding Me! face and proceeds to point out a giant picture of Spike)
    Antony C: Ohftft...he doesn't count.

Power Ponies

  • His parody of the Atop the Fourth Wall theme.
  • His various checklists.
    • The first one is when Twilight asks about Spike's comic book:
    Josh: "1: This is obviously not the first time he's read that kind of comic and you're only NOW asking him about it? That's kinda inconsiderate. 2: You never seem to have the same consideration when he's trying to sleep, Little Miss I-Must-Save-The-World-At-All-Hours-Of-The-Night. 3: When did you start wearing a sleeping cap? 4: Mane-iac. Probs for the pun. Makes you wanna punt kittens."
    • The second one almost immediately comes after the first one:
    Josh: "1: Why do so many female villains have evil living hair as a superpower? 2: Wait a minute, you're introducing her backstory in the very same issue where she's also the Power Ponies' most evil nemesis? Boy, that escalated quickly. Unless this is the pony version of The Killing Joke, which raises a lot more questions. 3: "Power mad owner of a hair care company?" What, did she envy the power of that lipstick had over ponies? [Imitating a random civilian] "Look out! She's out for revenge on Mascara wands!" [Normal voice] 4: What kind of shampoo was she making to give her that kind of superpower? What, is she a Captain Underpants villain?"
    • The third one almost immediately follows the second one, after Spike explains what the Mane-iac's goal is:
    Josh: "1: What is an object that powerful doing just sitting in a museum? You'd think the Power Ponies would put that under some tighter security. 2: How do you just let something like that slip out? If he's that incompetent and he keeps screwing things up for the Power Ponies, why do they keep him around? How have they not drowned him in a burlap sack yet? I mean, if he's explicitly telling supervillains where to find perpetual energy balls, he kinda needs to be silenced."

Dragon Quest

Shadow Play

  • Josh questions the Mane Six giving up so easily when they Ponehenge.
    Okay, hold on, you take three days to decipher a journal and want to keep going, yet you give up 20 seconds after finding lost ruins that you can't translate? "HAHA! After years of searching, I've finally found scrolls from the library at Alexandria! ...Eh, but they're so disorganized... This wasn't worth the trip."
  • Josh taking his "Convenient!" Running Gag Up to Eleven.

My Little Pony: The Movie

  • Josh's understandable frustration at the removal of the Princesses from the plot. He even caps of his rant with this gem:
    Josh:-and I'm not giving you a point for show accuracy there.
  • The very addressing of Elephant in the Room which is the absence of the Royal Guards during the invasion. You can tell that it hit way close to home in the rant, even lampshading that a certain set of characters would have been much more reliable help.
  • Tempest Shadow being compared to Kylo Ren, except being less complex and interesting than the latter and being a female pony.
    • He even says that the comparison even fits into the whole fake name trope at the end of the movie.
  • Josh comparing Equestria with the rest of the world and actually thinks Capper's bluff that the ponies are infected with a disease that only they themselves are immune to is quite plausible. When Capper says the "parts will fall off" part, he only has this to say.
    Josh: I don't like how vaguely you worded that. (moves his hands over his crouch)
    Josh: Huh, new record.
  • When Pinkie talks about the huge number of breakables in Capper's home, he immediately thinks of her unleashing her inner Link.
  • Apparently, the Storm Guard remind him of Star Wars stormtroopers.
  • When Tempest finds Pinkie's mane hair and immediately knows that it means the Mane 6 are in town:
    Josh: (deciding to continue Tempest's line) It's the only thing in this frame with any saturation.
  • When Capper dismisses Rainbow Dash's claims of doing the Sonic Rainboom, Josh sarcastically says that he must have got it confused with Double Rainboom. He didn't even get to finish the last two words before it cuts away to a technical difficulties notice saying that it was there to censor the use of the term to prevent him from going insane...again.
  • When Verko appraises Tempest like one of his wares, Josh states that Tempest is thinking of a thousand ways to end him in her head.
  • The whole rant with Grubber, saying how his dialogue kills any tension, states the obvious and the jokes aren't funny.
  • In response to the sky pirates' implied threat to the Mane 6:
    Josh: Wow, that was actually terrifying. (starts clapping)
  • When he realizes that the song names aren't that creative, future song names suggested include "Mondo", "Way Cool" and "Duuuuuuude".
  • In response to the Sonic Rainboom which blows their cover, Rainbow gets struck with a "stupid" stamp complete with a guy yelling how stupid she is in the background.
  • When Twilight rigs a hot air balloon for the Mane 6 to ride in like the intro, Josh wonders if he has to skip the sequence.
  • Josh's surprise that Tempest would actually blow Capper and the pirates out of the sky only to deflate when he is told that they all survived.
  • Upon Rarity's complaint that they had to crash the balloon, he recommends her not to play Skyward Sword or she will have an aneurysm.
  • When Princess Skystar takes the Mane Six to the kingdom of the Hippogriffs, Josh can’t help but be reminded of The Phantom Menace.
    Josh: To be fair, this movie would’ve benefited greatly with some hamminess from Sir BRIAN BLESSED! (Cuts to clip of Boss Nass LOUDLY SHAKING HIS JOWLS)
  • When he has to look up Queen Novo's voice actor, he apologizes if he pronounced her name wrong.
  • Princess Skystar being called a new Pinkie Pie.
  • His frustration when Spike gets turned into a puffer-fish.
  • Applejack's magical hat.
  • Josh sarcastically saying if Hasbro has the guts to kill off Twilight in the final struggle. When Twilight survived and is flying down on a ray of light (implied to be using the staff):
    Josh!Twilight: Your goddess Twilight has come to reap the earth of all unbelievers. Basically, everyone who doesn't buy the toys.

     FOB Equestria 
Taking Chrysalis' Invasion Too Seriously

Taking Gift of the Maud Pie Too Seriously

  • MangaKamen getting increasingly frustrated over the fact that Pinkie never once thinks to just ask Rarity to just make a rock pouch to give to Maud, nor Rarity even once offering to make said rock pouch, leading to Josh having to take rather... unorthodox measures to calm him down.
    Josh: Aramau, do the thing.
    Ari: Yes, sir.
    (Ari goes in MangaKamen’s direction, where blender-like sounds can be heard off screen. We then cut back to see MangaKamen in a giant cherry Slurpee)
    MangaKamen: How...?
    Josh: She’s very good at what she does.
    MangaKamen: But... this is my favorite! How would she know tha—?
    Josh: Very. Good. At what she does!

Taking The Mane Attraction Too Seriously

  • The entire review can be considered this seeing the normally calm MisAnthroPony acting silly and borderline Adorkable, compared to Commander Firebrand who's just used to everything.
  • The Introduction: Firebrand's listening to a jukebox only for MisAnthro to collapse right into the room.
    MisAnthro: Hey dude! HIDE ME!
    • Add to the fact Ari was going to KILL MAP for throwing off her schedule for six months for a collab review with Josh. When Firebrand can't calm Ari down, he just kisses her. With pixelation for the kiss. Makes it funnier when Ari confirmed on Twitter the gag was done because Josh doesn't have vectors of Firebrand and Ari kissing.
    MisAnthro: *seeing the two kiss* Aaaaw that's so sweet!
    Firebrand: Now honey, we'll do the collab and you can chase him later, okay?
    MisAnthro: *expression turns to confusion* What?!
    Ari:: *spins away with hearts in her eyes* Ooookaaaaaay!
    Firebrand: SOOOOOOOOOOO~! *uses his magic to get his gun*
    MisAnthro: AW COME ON! *facehooves*
    • What makes it funnier is MAP explains how he delayed the collab for six months due to personal drama that happened a while back and eventually got up the courage to do the collab...only to see Firebrand using listening to his jukebox again:
    Firebrand: Huh, what? Were you saying something?
    MisAnthro: *groans* You're a jerk sometimes, you know that?
    Firebrand:: I get that a lot.
  • Firebrand shows annoyance at Rarity's line how unicorns always exaggerate necessities...only for Ari to come in the room and give Josh a sandwich with weird toppings, including popcorn chicken "for motivation".
    Firebrand:...-________- Thanks.
    MisAnthro: That sounds gross. (beat)...Can I have a bite?
    Firebrand: NO IT'S ALL MINE!
    MisAnthro: O_O!
  • The two interpreting a Fridge Horror theory how after Svengallop ditches Coloratura, he went off to work with Songbird Serenade. Cue them showing shock and horror.
  • MAP breaking into more Adorkable nature when Josh makes an interpretation on how AJ probably told Coloratura about the death of her parents.
    MisAnthro: GO FAN FIC WRITERS, TO YOUR KEYBOARD!
  • After MAP breaks into a Heartwarming Moment speech about how the episode was Amy Keaton Roger's final episode on the show and how she was able to give Lauren Faust's wishes to be explored in the show (Rarity getting her big boutique and the CMC getting their cutie marks) and her own good elements in her own writing (Giving Gilda closure and reuniting her with Rainbow Dash, the aforementioned Rarity getting her big boutique and the CMC getting their cutie marks) and the episode showcasing Applejack's best traits, Firebrand invokes the Mood Whiplash:
    Firebrand: Alright, get in the party howitzer.
    MisAnthro: What? No, why would I do that?!
    Ari: *off-screen* TIME'S UP!
    *Ari proceeds to explode the wall and appear next to them, all while glaring at MAP*
    MisAnthro: O_O!!
    Firebrand: Get in the party howitzer, or get eviscerated. Your choice.
    Ari: GIVE ME YOUR SPINE SO I MAY BEAT YOU WITH IT!
    MisAnthro: HOWITZER IT IS! BYE! *runs off to the left and is shot across the room by the party howitzer''*

Taking Not Asking for Trouble Too Seriously

  • The Green Scorpion’s introduction. Josh and Ari finished installing a new security system, only for Green Scorpion to easily enter due to his small size. At first Josh and Ari don't notice him and wonder where his voice is coming from, which leads to a frustrated yell of "DOWN HERE, IDIOTS!" Pan down to reveal Green Scorpion, who lets out a small “Hi!” that is very reminiscent of a certain adorable spider...

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
  • In Part 1, Josh starts to say, "Dawn of the First Day", but then stops to actually figure how many hours are in a week before finishing the quote.
    • Even funnier when you realize that he got the number of hours wrong. He was calculating 12 hours a day, instead of 24.
    • Also, as a Running Gag throughout that and the second part, whenever the characters are unable to say "photos", he substitutes in a random rhyming word like "dodos", "hobos", and "bolos".
    • In part 9, he devolves into utter Angrish when he gets killed no less than four times by Assassin Nobodies, three in succession in The Woods. It's made funnier by the episode's description box: "I can eat Lingering Will for breakfast... yet this happens..."
  • From Part 42:
    • Vaatiwithblue describing Vivi as a "Jawa with a wardrobe malfunction."
    "The hell's a Vivi?"
  • During Part 52, Josh COMPLETELY forgets about what he was doing during that part, neglecting to finish Halloween Town (Where many people pointed it out in the comments). In part 53, he then remarks that the Pridelands level was supposed to be a level done after Halloween Town, where at that moment, remembers that he forgot to finish it, the description of the video lampshading it: "I... skipped a thingy... an important thingy..."
  • In Part 55, he then has a choice between saving Santa or going to beat up Scar. He chooses to beat up Scar, remarking that Santa could "rot a little more".
  • His rant + Cluster F-Bomb in Part 61 upon The Reveal that The Ansem in the first game wasn't really Ansem.
    "F**k you! F**k you! F**k you! F**k you! F**k you! F**kyouf**kyou!! F**K YYYOOOOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the STUPIDEST, STUPIDEST Plot Twist I have EVER heard!! M. Night Shyamalan would look at this Plot Twist and say: "Wow! That was incredibly stupid!"! This is the dumbest RETCON of ANYTHING I've EVER seen! YES!!! It COMPLETELY DESTROYS the value of the first game!! I! hate this Plot Twist! This was the point in Kingdom Hearts...in the Kingdom Hearts canon where I realised that This! Story! Was! Not good!! Where Tetsuya Nomura is making up the story, as he goes along! This! Is! Terrible!!!!!"

Kingdom Hearts III

  • Josh's reaction when he found Demyx is in this game, with implication of another boss battle with him, though there are not any.

     Miscellaneous 
  • His over-the-top Squee! later about Hyrule Warriors also counts. Like his Alicorn Twilight reaction, The Quarter Guy loops this one, complete with "It was a joke" caption at the end.
  • Several interactions between himself and Doug and Rob Walker in this video. Memorable moments:
    • At the very beginning, Doug brings up Josh's Awesome Mc Coolname and says how it sounds like a superhero name. "THE SCORCHER!"
    • Josh mentions how he'd like to see a gag on one Nostalgia Critic video where the Critic is ranting, then the camera pans back and he's just standing on a soap box. The idea is talked about briefly and soon becomes an idea for a Running Gag where the Critic is standing on bigger and bigger soap boxes each time until he's on a box photoshopped to be as big as the Sears Tower, then becomes a joke where the Critic has no idea how he got on the soap box.
    Doug: That's not bad! We might use that joke...
    Rob: We have to kill him though, before he can tell anyone else that it was his.
    Doug: Yes, please chop your head off after this is done.
    Josh: (cheerfully) Will do!
    Doug: I like this guy!
    • Josh suggests they get on to the part where Doug critiques Josh's videos (that's what the call was supposed to be for). Doug gets right into it. "Well, it sucks. Uh, I hate every minute of it, your face is ugly, and I don't like it at all."
      • Similarly, later on, Doug says that Josh's editing is "too slow". Josh thinks he's being serious and actually writes that down before Doug says he's joking.
    • Doug and Rob apparently thought Josh recorded his videos from a prison because of the brick wall behind him. Which leads to this exchange, after they bring up how Josh's window and curtain cause an odd light effect on one side of the wall when he records:
    Rob: Paint the windows black. People will think you're a serial killer-
    Josh: (cutting Rob off frantically) No, no, no no no! I cannot do that, I cannot do that. If I do that, I will get in trouble. I will get NJP'd. Do you know what that means?
    Doug: But what does it matter? You're in prison already! So what does it...
    • Josh asks Doug what his father's MOS was. Doug and Rob do not respond, and the onscreen text says "I detected their brains did not compute." before Josh rephrases the question.
  • Beata Nomura is both hilarious and epic at the same time.
  • This exchange on his Tumblr blog:
    Anon: Diamond Tiara X Firebrand (Colt). I ship it!
    *two pictures of his OC being shipped with Diamond Tiara show up*
    Josh:! WHAT? THE! MOTHER-... Gah, walked RIGHT into that one...
  • The end of Unscripted 52. Josh is asked what he thinks of the Kamen Rider franchise. His response?
  • His 3rd Live Unscripted was full of funny moments.
    • Near the beginning, when Josh is asking the viewers to send him questions to answer, Decker can be heard offscreen:
    Josh: No, Decker, mayonnaise is not an instrument. Horse radish is not an instrument either.
    Decker: Tartar sauce!
    • Josh's rant about Devil's Due, which slowly degrades into Angrish.
  • In Shenanigans with 1: Musically Tangled, while discussing Frozen, they talk about Kristoff being the least popular character in the fandom, which leads to Josh calling him the Flash Sentry of Frozen.
  • In Shenanigans with 2, HSpirit is disconnected at one point, so Josh responds by casually beating his avatar over the head with a guitar, because why not?
  • Josh Scorcher reviews A Dog and Pony Show after downing ghost pepper sauce
  • This Dr. Wolf video. Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment.
  • He, along with other Military Bronies do a live reaction to the Season 5 premiere, and upon seeing the Mane 6 trapped, we get a reaction from Josh, and it's the way he says it that makes it funny.
    Josh: What is wrong with this?!
  • The origin of the Beata Nomura song. Josh and some of his friends were talking about the possibilities of a Frollo boss in a Skype chat, and Josh had spent 15 minutes typing the song.
  • Josh, along with ToonKritic, NickyvMLP, and IMMATOONLINK got together and played Superfight. The result is hilarious.
    • Just one amazing moment: Iron Man... but there's fifty of him... and each one is walking twelve wiener dogs.
  • How does Josh wait for a Team Fortress 2 game to end? He lip synchs Nightwish's rendition of ''Phantom of the Opera", which was playing in the background. Gets funnier when the moment also lands in his highlight reel for the month, courtesy of added text and some zooming in:
    Tickets are now available for Josh's new lip syncing tour called "I'm Waiting For This TF2 Match to Finish", for just $50.
    Tickets are now sold out.
  • In his 4th stream of playing Dust: An Elysian Tail, starting at 39:30, he starts going "Ooooh," "Ahh," and other such noises to express everything he's feeling as he plays. He keeps this up for over TEN MINUTES.
  • At Whinny City Pony Con 2016, Josh lip-synced to "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Albuquerque", and clearly had a ball doing it. Watch it here.
  • This MST3K-styled review of "The Hugga Bunch" has quite a few hilarious moments, mostly relating to all the Accidental Innuendo in the movie. This has to be the best bit, though:
    Hugsy: Shh! Talk quietly through here.
    Bridget: Why?
    (camera pans to show an entire field of napping Hugga Bunch babies)
    Silver Quill: Wait...they procreate?
    Lightning Bliss: NOT SAFE FOR BLISSY!
    Dr. Wolf: Moving on!
  • His Nintendo Direct Reaction 3/8/2018:
  • Slice of Base Life 1 is a mix of this and Heartwarming, as is explains how Firebrand and Aramau met (in-universe, at least), and Aramau’s backstory, which reveals that she grew up in a funeral home of all things. And then we get the reveal that “Aramau” is actually just a nickname. Her full name is Arid Mausoleum.
