      Pyro: Whort.
    • After gaining the "Epic Roast" pyromancy, he starts insulting enemies with a text-to-speech device before setting them on fire.
      Text-to-Speech Device: Hollow? More like loser. You actually make Dark Souls 2 look good. The last time sorcery was a viable build was Demon's Souls.
  • From Fat Cry 5
    • Pyro's monologue about how overpowered the shovels in the game are, set to opera music.
      Pyro: May God have mercy on your enemies when you get ahold of the mighty shovel. If Captain Ahab had weld a shovel against Moby Dick, he would have perfectly skewered the beast, while simultaneously piercing the Sun.
    • "I dealt with Captain America much like how he died in Infinity War. Shot by Thanos with a 44-scope Magnum."

(voice slows down as a clip of Matpat screaming "I JUST SIMULTANEOUSLY WHIPPED AND NAE NAE'D!" plays on the background).
    • One of the Johnny Johnny videos has a Shoddy Knockoff Product version of Peter Griffin, of all people, portraying as the father.
    • Pyro gets bullied again in form of Johnny Johnny memes.
      "I'm not- I'm not-! This is a Johnny Johnny video! Why, does this happens everytime?"
    • "Are you razist?".
    • The fact that Tommy Wiseau, of all people posted a video edit of Johnny Johnny using scenes from The Room.
    • This exchange:
      Papa: Johnny, Johnny.
      Johnny: (Who has been edited to look like he's been playing Fortnite) Yes, Papa?
      Text-to-Speech voice: Playing Fortnite?
      Pyro: LIAR! If my kid is playing Fortnite, (Puts hand on chest) I would throw him out a window! Disgusting!
  • "DESPACITO MEMES", just "DESPACITO MEMES". Highlights include;
    • The gang's dissapointment upon finding a Loss.jpg-themed Despacito meme.
    • An offscreen Hyojin throws a pillow at Kwite and Pyro's direction... when there's a glass of water on the table that would've been spilled had Kwite didn't catch it.
      Kingani: There's water on the table!
      Kwite: You got f-*bass boost*-ing lucky!
    • "Liberals owned Despacito style"
    • The constant clapping and chair-screeching they make throughout the video.
      BluesDank: We're gonna get f-*bass boost*-ing noise complaints from e- (cuts off with laughter)
      Pyro: Yeah, they're gonna think there's a shooting going on on the next house or something. (imitating a woman's voice) "Hello, police? I hear Despacito and lots of gunfire!"
    • "It's official; Despacito will be renewed to a second season." (Cut to Kwite strangling Henry as he screams in agony, red filter included.)
    • The gang came across a Counter-Strike-themed meme. Pyro, who claimed to had seen the meme before, said that he had to do a Google search to check if it's true or not. Kingani on the other hand launched the actual game up to check.
      • This is followed by Kwite taking away Henry's beanie, making him scream in agony again.
    • Pyro comparing a video with the hashtag "military" with someone getting a kill in the Rust map in Modern Warfare 2. It gets better when one video shows a guy actually changes into military attire, which Pyro immediately compares it to someone who spawn camps with the lever-action shotgun in the same game.
      "Pussy! Pussy!"
    • "Soy! Soy, soy, soy, soy!"
    • "It's Infinity War! It's all connected, Thanos was a bad boy all along! I knew it, I knew it!"
    • "I'm placing a hit on this man: One hundred thousand Robux (followed with a superimposed image of a Roblox head and the "oof!" sound effect) for anyone that throws rotten fruit at him!"
    • At one point one of the "bad boys" is revealed to actually be a woman, which Pyro finds amusement in and congratulates her on "promoting equality" by showing women can get in on garbage memes.
    • During one particular "bad boys" video, Pyro found the guy on the video to be similar to his friend Elliot/ElBob. He immediately calls him to point this out.
      Elliot: I love it, I love, I hate you. (hangs up)
  • The Dark Side of TikTok
    • Pyro insinuating that everyone who is too young to remember watching Spy Kids is an "iPhone user", complete with a "cake" shitpost.
      • Even better, before that, one video shows two obese men doing a "nothing to live for" duet, in which Pyro compares them to the Human Thumbs.
    • "Mr. "Psychokronik"? Mr. Soy!" (the word "soy" is superimposed into Psychokronik's handle)

    • Pyro's reaction to seeing a middle-aged man doing a Fortnite dance not once, not twice, but three times:
      "There's at million people on Earth...and so many of these people are just the same guy!"
    • And then of course you have Pyro creating his own response to a "nothing to live for" duet.
  • His increasingly hilarious tantrums he throws every time he sees a meme clowning on him in "MOTH LAMP MEMES". One particular reaction is him running to his bed and jumping on it like an angry child.
  • In "These Youtubers Are "Dying"", Pyro plays an off-key saxophone, squatting on top of his bed during the part where Thomas (one of the hosts of the XtremeGamez channel) sings a song for his apparently "dying" brother, Johnny.
    "What the hell was that?"
  • Pyro, along with Dolan Dark and Hyojin (and later Ramsker, Root, and Kwite in the second video) took a stab on commissioning Fiverr and Cameo videos, highlights on the first video include:
  • Pyro struggling to watch Justin Roiland, Logic and Ninja stream Fallout 76:
    "This is painful to watch. My wife left me, and that was more entertaining than this."
  • After months of trying to get his attention, Pyro finally managed to convince Kanye West to follow him on Twitter. And the first thing he asked him afterwards?
    "play fortnite with me kanye"
  • His recent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate review gave us JonTron vibes, and is loaded with moments to boot.
    • Pyro waking up declaring it's December 25th, while his alarm clock displays January 26th.
    • Apparently Pyro's dad broke out from prison, illegally.
    • During one match, Pyro (playing as Ness) starts spamming PK Fire on Ramsker, increasing his percentage to 69 percent.note 
    • One skit has the Isabelle amiibo confronting Pyro in the middle of a forest. He tried shooting her with no avail, and then tried to fire a bazooka at her, which failed because he was "too weak", much to his dismay. His final solution? Summon a Solaire amiibo as his "Final Smash".
  • Pyro's recent Instagram photo is him with eyeliner.
  • Pyro's entire video reacting to 250k subs memes in an attempt to lay it to rest. This does not work.
    • Highlights include the IRL meme mashup of the wheelchair cat, Bully Hunters, and 250k meme, as well as the guy who sampled both the wheelchair cat and Pyro's laugh to remake the music tracknote  from the 250k video.
    • When Pyro asks for 250k memes on Twitter... his fans instead sent him Thanos memes.
    • One particular meme his fans sent is Fiverr Jesus reciting the copypasta, which is the exact video Pyro commissioned from him during his antics on Fiverr.
      Pyro: (Solemnly) I don't want do fucking YouTube anymore, man. I can- I could be working a 9-5 at a McDonalds... And I would be satisfying more people than what I'm doing now... This is so sad!
  • "losers read r/indianpeoplefacebook"
