"Where every jump is an adventure."

DeliciousCinnamon is a group of friends that play video games together. Initially starting out on YouTube and occasionally streaming on Twitch, they later began producing most of their content live streaming through hitbox (now rebranded as smashcast.)

It was started up by: Robert "Bert" Lindert with his friend David "Dubz" Knapp, with Dezz, Mysh, Juan, and Adam as the other members. With the move to live streaming, the channel now mainly features Dubz, Dezz, Minimoose and Alexa.

The channel became popular from a Let's Play of Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal , a "Blind Idiot" Translation of Pokémon Crystal from Vietnam. Since then, they have branched out into Let's Plays and live streams of other games as well.

Their collective lineup of games includes:

    YouTube Let's Play Series 
    Year of Streaming Series 
     2016 Stream Series 
     2017 Stream Series (Dubz) 
  • Pokemon Chinese Emerald
  • Moemon Emerald Nuzlocke
  • Super Monkey Ball 2
  • Bootleg Pokemon Nuzlockes
     2018 Stream Series (Dubz) 
    Recurring Stream Games 

For 2017, they announced that they have stopped with full-time streaming on the official channel. Dubz has continued streaming on his personal channel, playing a variety of games as well as finishing some of the games played on the main channel.

Most of their hitbox livestreams have been archived on their secondary YouTube channel.

They also have a fan made wiki, though it seems to have been abandoned.

DeliciousCinnamon provides examples of:

  • 100% Completion: Done with Crash Bandicoot 2
    • Also done with Banjo Kazooie. They even go to the length of completing every square on the board in Grunty's Furnace Fun.
  • Aborted Arc: The Let's Plays of System Shock, Fallout 3, Earthbound and Sonic & Knuckles were cancelled after only a few episodes.
    • Cinnacast ended after four episodes, though some footage at the end implies they recorded a fifth one.
  • Accidental Misnaming: They constantly refer to Aku Aku as Uka Uka (his evil counterpart). This is acknowledged at the end of Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 10 Part 1, where Bert says he can't call it Aku Aku because of Samurai Jack.
    • "Fuji Juju Fruits."
    • At the beginning of the Crash Bandicoot 2 Lost Episode, Dezz accidentally includes Dubz instead of Juan in the list of people commentating over the episode. Juan does not take this well.
    • While playing multiplayer games, Bert will sometimes refer to someone as his character or player number when mad.
    • During Banjo Kazooie, Dezz ends up calling the Jinjos "Outskirts Jingos".
  • The Ace: Juan is the best at Crash Bandicoot among the group.
    • Each member excels at a different minigame in Pokémon Stadium:
      • Bert - Magikarp's Splash
      • Dubz - Ekans' Hoop Hurl
      • Dezz - Clefairy Says
      • Mysh - Rock Harden
      • Adam - EVERYTHING
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Their reaction upon being turned into a fish in Space Funeral.
    • Subverted during part of Dead Space:
      Bert: So we're probably gonna die a few times now, 'cause you're terribad.
      Dubz: That's a great word, but I'm still offended.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Plenty are given to the various Necromorphs in Dead Space and Dead Space 2, most notably Cedric.
  • Alliterative Name:
    • During a Mario Party 2 stream, Bert gives Mysh a laptop and assigns him the title of "Macbook Mysh."
    • During a Terraria Capture The Gem match, Bert accidentally gives Kipp the title of Dubz Died.
  • Alliterative Title: Some of the video titles.
    • Crash Bandicoot Episode 4: D-pad Disaster
    • Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 6: Mysh Massacre
    • Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 10 Part 2: Bert's Bees
    • In the Dead Space finale, they create the store names Mysh Mart and Bert's Bargain Bazaar.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Often invoked by Viet Crystal due to the poor translations. The main character is an Extreme Omnisexual stripper of ambiguous gender, the rival is a monster, many of the Pokémon are deaf, and most of the people have No Indoor Voice and are very prone to heart attacks.
    • During the 2013 Spring Stream, Juan gives Goompa the voice of Old Rusty. This causes the chat to theorize that he is suffering from PTSD from fighting Mario.
    • The final boss of Super Amazing Quest just wants to be a dancer, but his dad (the Hero) won't let him. He shits out leotard bombs and summons backup dancers as his minions.
    • When not battling walkers, Rick spends each day asking Maggie his three questions.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: "We annihilated their women, their children, and even their asparagus."
  • Ascended Meme: In this video, Bert, Dubz, Juan and Mysh make Volcano Bakemeat in the style of Epic Meal Time. At the end, they promise to make Kuang Steak in the next episode. Which they never made.
    • During one of their early Twitch livestreams, one fan accidentally called it the "lovestream." Fast forward to 2015, where they have named their Valentine's Day livestream the Lovestream.
  • Attack! Attack... Retreat! Retreat!: Upon running into a Ditto, Bert tries to catch it. He flees once it transforms into a Haunter:
    Bert: Peace out!
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!:
    • Dubz attempts to start Episode 3 of Dead Space quietly, but Bert looks at an ad and shouts "SUN!" Dubz and Mysh follow.
    • Bert accidentally saying Totally Blair instead of Totally Bear derails the commentary into talking about The Blair Witch Project.
    • During Knights of the Old Republic, Dezz often gets sidetracked by playing Pazaak.
  • Atrocious Alias: Bert believes Lt. Surge got the name "Tingsi Major" by being demoted.
  • Audience Participation: Encouraged during their livestreams.
    • During their first livestream of Pokemon Green, they attempted to catch an Abra. Dezz encouraged everyone to press A to help them catch it.
    • They also do this occasionally in VietCrystal; Bert tells everyone to press Z when they're trying to catch Sudowoodo.
    • Gone Horribly Wrong during part of their YouTube livestream. When Dubz and Mysh faced of in Kirby's Avalanche, Bert told everyone to press Z for Dubz or A for Mysh. The chat soon became overrun with "ZZAZZAZAZAAZZAZAZAAZAAZZZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZZAZAZAAZZAZAZA ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA", to Bert's horror.
    • For Crash Bandicoot 2, they added subtitles to their videos based on fan suggestions.
    • With Fibbage, Drawful, and Pokemon Showdown, they have been able to play actual games with chat members over the stream.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: Adam during Pokemon Stadium. He manages to best Bert three times at Magikarp's Splash, and even Dezz once at Clefairy Says. The others resort to constantly playing Dig! Dig! Dig! because it's the only game Adam is not guaranteed to win... until Adam decides to use that trick against them by waiting until everyone is too tired to actually try to win.
  • Big "NO!": Used by Dubz in Viet Crystal when Bert crashes the game by trying to sell Pointup.
  • Big "OMG!": Often done when something outrageous happens. An example being when Dezz says it after Juan realizes he didn't get 56/57 boxes, but 56/58.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Subverted during the Bootleg Bonanza. When they play the second Pokemon Gold cartridge, they accidentally come across a screen entirely in Japanese. Mysh attempts to decipher it, but concludes that it is just gibberish.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Viet Crystal. On one hand, it has been ended without the guys battling Red, or without much of a conclusion at all even. On the other hand, the series spawned plenty of jokes, it helped get the channel off the ground, and it was all in all a fun ride.
  • *Bleep*-dammit!: Bert tried censoring some of his and Dubz's language in Episode 48 of Viet Crystal to help increase his chances of earning a YouTube Partnership. It didn't seem to help much, and most of the fans didn't like it, so Bert scrapped the idea for future episodes.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation/Translation Trainwreck: Viet Crystal of course.
    • Bootleg Pokemon Green is another example, though arguably not as poorly translated as Viet Crystal.
    • The entire purpose of the Bootleg Bonanza was to find and show these off.
  • Body Horror: "I'm the human slinky!"
  • Book Ends: The first and last streams of 2016 both featured a game of Quiplash involving someone joining under the name of Talon.
  • Born Lucky: Bert creates a save file for Viet Crystal right before going into the PCC, which causes the game to crash.
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: "I was first killed by Neszy, then I was killed by Kipp. Now I was killed by Neszy AND Kipp."
  • Break the Haughty: Juan always keeps his cool, unless you show him Hospice.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: During Episode 9 of Crash Bandicoot 2, Dezz says, "I would like you to look at the bottom of the screen and let me remind you who's playing," possibly referring to the death counter that is added in post.
  • Buffy Speak: In Viet Crystal, Bert describes the poison symbol as a "snowman with two pieces minus the other side."
    • In Chinese Emerald, Dezz tries to say a certain route is a dead end, but ends up saying it is "non-go-through-the-path."
  • But Thou Must!: During the FTL: Faster Than Light stream, Bert leaves all of the ingame choices to the chat, no matter how much he may disagree.
  • Butt-Monkey: Dubz, who at one point joked about this by saying he is the poster child for ""
    • For any YouTube series where Dubz was not around, Mysh tended to fill in this role when Dubz.
  • Call-Back: Bert sometimes does this with Viet Crystal phrases.
    • In Bootleg Pokemon Green, Tackle was called Go All Out. In Episode 48 of Viet Crystal, when Karen said "GO ALL OUT", Bert and Dubz joked that she was going to Tackle them.
    • In the very first episode of Viet Crystal, Bert finds "A TV SET", which surprises him because it was actually translated correctly. In Episode 3 of Kanto, Bert finds the exact same text, which Dubz points out.
    • A gag in Chinese Emerald invokes a call back to Viet Crystal:
      Dezz: You're a MONster!
    • In part 11 of Chinese Emerald, they mention killing themselves in 1980, a reference to a previous Chinese Emerald video. The name of the trope is also mentioned.
  • Call-Forward: During the 2013 Summer Stream, after Mario Party 2 glitches up and "Slenderkoop" appears, Dubz states that he is a Timelord and can take everyone forward in time to the October Stream.
  • The Cameo: Dubz and Juan in their Crash Bandicoot LP.
    • Dubz suddenly appears during Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 8.
    • Ascended Extra: Juan would return as a regular guest for the Crash Bandicoot 2 LP.
    • Adam appears as the voice of Dracula in Criswelvania.
    • Bert (and Minimoose briefly) in Episode 8 of Pokemon Chinese Emerald.
    • Mysh pops up in person during a stream of Explorers of Sky.
  • Canon Discontinuity: The Lost Episodes of Crash Bandicoot 1 and 2, since no actual progress was made.
  • Cat Scare: A spectacular example occurs during The Reminiscent, where Dezz causes everyone to flinch at nothing.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "IT'S A ONE-HIT WONDER!" upon defeating an enemy in one hit.
    • "Sprinting! It's just a cinematic!"
      • "Stomp it for good measure!"
    • "What an ass."
    • "Press Z everyone!"
    • "All of my why!"
    • "Mysh mad."
    • "Next time." "On Dragon Ball Z!"
    • "Chat, how ya doin'?"
    • "We're gonna play this game."
    • "Raiders Roll!"
    • "Listen..."
    • "You stupid cock!"
    • "Easy money!"
  • Chekhov's Gag: Juan making hashbrowns during Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 8.
  • Chekhov's Gun: During Banjo Kazooie, while trying to get into the temple with the entrance at the top in Gobi's Valley, Dezz ponders whether he can make a certain jump. Dubz, not confident in Dezz's abilities, creates a save state so he can try it without consequence. Afterwards, they finally make it into the temple after several attempts, but Dubz fails to get the Mumbo Token inside. Because of this, he decides to reload the save state, undoing their progress.
    • On a meta level, the DeliciousVlog channel also qualifies. It was initially set up for uploading outtakes and other behind-the-scenes content. Following the move to livestreaming, however, it became a place for the group to upload their livestream archives.
  • Cherry Tapping: During the Bootleg Bonanza, Mysh has some trouble killing a Tangela; two of his Pokemon faint trying to defeat it. He decides to deal the finishing blows with a level 5 Togepi.
  • Cliffhanger: Episodes 6, 38 and 69 of Viet Crystal end this way.
  • Clip-Art Animation: The DC Summer Stream Announcement video.
  • Companion Cube: Dezz's Cup.
    • SOMA gives us Exting the fire extinguisher, aka Dezz's boy.
  • Continuity Nod: At the end of Episode 45 of Viet Crystal, Dubz calls their future battles with the Elite Four the "Four Emperor Finale," or the FEF for short. Once they return from a month on hiatus, Dubz announces they are back with the FEF (which he has to reexplain to Bert because he forgot).
    • In Crash Bandicoot 2 Episode 7 Part 1, Dezz comments on a rat enemy that has been "equipped." Bert points out that Dezz said the same thing in an earlier episode, then later edits the video to cut to the footage from said earlier episode.
  • Cross Player: Thanks to a typo, they decided to play Viet Crystal as the female protagonist.
    • They also tried playing as the papergirl during the Paperboy 2 stream (though they commented that her Game Over picture was nearly identical to that of the paperboy).
    • Mysh prefers to play as Peach in Mario Party.
    • During the Real Life For Morons stream, Bert plays as a teenage girl who gets a job as a stripper.
    • Done again when they play Pokemon 3D:
      Dubz: Or do we wanna do a boy?
      Bert: Who wants to be a boy?
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The Terraria Capture the Gem match with OdysseyGamez. Bert, Juan and Jack had no chance against Rauri, Will and Dubz.
  • Cure for Cancer: They apparently have the cure for palsy:
  • Dance Party Ending: An odd version occurs during the Real Life for Morons stream, where Bert throws such an epic dance party that he dies.
  • Dangerous Windows: WINDOWS NO
  • Day in the Life: Some of the earlier content on their DeliciousVlog channel is this, notably Friday Night Car Ride
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: In Viet Crystal, they do this to a Wooper in Part 11 and a Kakuna in Part 16.
  • Determinator: Bert. He tries going through Sprout Tower in one go without returning to a Pokécenter until all of his Pokemon have fainted.
    • In the Crash Bandicoot 2 LP, Bert is able to leave one of the levels after picking up the gem, but he insists on completing the level anyway:
      Dezz: Bert, we got the red gem. Just go home.
      Bert: What do you mean "Just go home!?"
  • Diabolus ex Machina: At the end of Red Rescue Team, they lose to Rayquaza mainly because he decides use Ancientpower, which happens to trigger its secondary effect of raising all of his stats, rendering the team unable to do more than a few hit points of damage with any of their moves.
    • Also happens in Chinese Emerald, to a lesser extent: Dubz is able to beat the Elite Four and save afterwards, but the rom crashes on the S. S. Tidal, rendering him unable to do much of the postgame content.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: One commenter compared the accidental release of Muffy to Old Yeller:
    They just did an Old Yeller on Muffy. Took it to a different box and everything.
  • Dug Too Deep: Inverted during the Terraria PVP match. They dug deep, but it wasn't until they tried digging back UP that they encountered their worst problems.
    • They kept digging deeper and deeper into the second Pokemon Gold bootleg, and ended up finding the terrible bottom: Racism!
  • Early-Bird Cameo: In an episode from the first Viet Crystal session, Dubz received a text from Juan who would show up as a guest for later DeliciousCinnamon videos.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: The first fourteen episodes of Viet Crystal were all one single 2 1/2-hour-long recording session, cut rather awkwardly into 10-minute segments. It wasn't until Episode 9 of Kanto and the start of the Crash Bandicoot LP that they started making videos by the rule of one video per recording (occasionally splitting a recording into two or more parts in a less awkward fashion).
    • Their livestream setups have gone through many changes as well. Even looking just at hitbox/smashcast, it is noticeable how much they have changed over just a year.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Viet Crystal gives us Eggie, Chedr, Pizza, Bean, Steak, Salsa, Feta, Sushi, Nuget, Twnke, Pickl, Apple, Porge, BKMT, BLBRY, Cake and Oats.
    • Somewhat ironic considering some of the Pokemon in Viet Crystal are even naturally named after food, such as Fork, Corn, Milk, Jelly and Bread. There is even a character referred to as "Wulnut."
    • And let's not forget Green, which had Bacon, Tofu, Pepsi, Gouda and Lemon.
    • And now Chinese Emerald gives us Kurdz, Kraut, and Taytr.
  • Epic Fail: Dubz and friends aren't exactly the most skilled video game players.
    • During Viet Crystal, Bert and Dubz completely ignore the woman who gives them the HM Fly, then proceed to spend a good portion of the video wondering where they are supposed to get Fly.
    • During an episode of Crash Bandicoot 2, Dezz ran into some boxes that he tried to break by spinning them. He tries 23 times without success. He ended up just jumping over the boxes.
    • The lost episodes of both Crash Bandicoot games highlight Mysh's "skills."
    • Subverted during part of Viet Crystal. During the Elite Four battles, Bert guesses that Aerodactyl is Flying/Ground, when it is actually Flying/Rock. Bert later mentions a comment someone made about it: "Flying AND ground? You guys are retarded." This caused more people to comment that Flying/Ground is a legitimate dual type, citing Gligar as a Pokemon with these types.
    • During one of the Mario Party 2 streams, Bert plays Coffin Congestion and easily finds the item he wants, but doesn't get it because he can't figure out how to open the coffins.
    • While playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Dubz decides to eat something from his bag in order to make room for another item. He eats a Blast Seed, which causes an explosion that damages whatever is in front of the Pokemon that eats this. Dubz doesn't know this, nor does he know that he can damage teammates this way, so he ends up inadvertently killing Boomish.
    • In Wind Waker, when they head for Greatfish Isle after leaving Forest Haven, Dubz starts sailing northwest... and keeps on sailing until he's almost at Forsaken Fortress. When he finally reorients himself towards Greatfish, he sails straight into one of Cyclos's cyclones.
      • During Wind Waker, they switch off about every 30 minutes. Someone points out that because of these mistakes, Dubz spent almost his entire turn sailing.
      • After they beat Molgera, Dubz fails to pick up the Heart Container.
  • Evil All Along: Bert turns out to be Dracula at the end of Criswelvania.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: Inverted here, where Bert explains why Juan just did something wrong, only to realize nothing bad happened as a result:
    Bert: That was a thing with groundhogs, and you just completely skipped it. But that's okay.
    • In Trine 2, after Dezz gets Alexa stuck:
      Dezz: Here's what's gonna happen. I'm gonna leave the screen, and then you'll poof to me.
      Alexa: Or, you'll poof where I am.
      Dezz: Oh shit.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Bert and Dubz often don't notice some of the typos and mistranslations in Viet Crystal.
    • The first time they looked through the Pokedex, Bert and Dubz didn't notice that Zenda is labelled as a Cock Pokemon.
    • It took them until Episode 45 to notice that the main character uses the computer by pulling its power supply out.
    • It took them even longer (Episode 6 of Kanto) to notice "Bag of Put Prop"
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Any time Dubz creates a save state in the middle of a death.
  • Fan Art: They have received a lot of it, which they highly recommend.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: They're not perfect, but if they know how to complete something optional in Crash Bandicoot 2, they WILL try to do it. Do NOT suggest skipping it.
  • Five-Second Foreshadowing: During the GTAV Carmageddon stream, Dubz and Hepna are delighted when they find an unoccupied bike sitting in the road for them to take. Of course, they don't notice the car parked a few yards behind it.
  • Flashback Cut: During an episode of Crash Bandicoot 2, when Dezz comments on a rat enemy that has been "equipped," Bert points out that he said the same thing in an earlier episode. Cue a cut to a clip from said episode showing Dezz saying the same thing.
    • During an episode of Fallout 3, they question why they don't have any ammo for their flamethrower. Cue a cut to earlier in the video where Dubz is wasting the ammo on a sign.
  • Flipping the Bird: During a corruption stream, one corruption of Super Mario World turns the exclamation point in "Mario Start!" to something resembling this.
    • During an H1Z1 stream, Dubz and Hepna go on a mission to screenshot themselves doing this to multiple players ingame.
  • Foregone Conclusion: For part of the Raikou and Ho-oh episode of Viet Crystal: Anyone who watched Bert's solo livestreams would know going in that Bert caught a shiny Poliwhirl and would use it to prank Dubz.
  • Foreshadowing: Before Bert fights Snorlax, Dubz says "His best move is Pointup." Your mileage may vary on whether he knew what would happen or not.
    • In the same episode, Bert accidentally loads a save state in the Ruins of Alph after the game crashes the first time. After they beat Snorlax, Bert accidentally loads this state again when trying to save.
    • Happens again in Criswelvania with lines like "I can fly, that means I'm Dracula! I mean..." and "Yeah, I don't like garlic soup anyways."
    • When they play Super Clean Clean, Dubz warns Christa that because she is spending so much time taking care of a single room, the other rooms are probably full of crap. Sure enough, they come back to the first room in the game almost filled to the ceiling with vomit.
    • Early in the Platinum Nuzlocke, someone warns Dubz about the move Pursuit, which is more powerful when used on a Pokemon that is switching out. Sure enough, this is what kills Boneitis.
  • Funny Background Event: ChipsCahoy trying to pet Wally under the futon during the Mario Maker segment of the 2016 Chat Meetup stream:
    Minimoose: Sometimes I just- I glance at the webcam output and I see Chips laying on the floor and it looks like she's dead. We just got a dead body in the room with us.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Used by one of the livestream participants during a Mario Party 2 stream (see the Laugh Themselves Sick entry below):
    PatStar89: So THESE are the DC avengers.
    • During a now lost stream, a game of Super Mario Bros 3 ends when Mysh accidentally messes up one of the video cords. The result is a screen with the letters "J.T." The chat offers some suggestions for what they stand for.
    • During the Bootleg Bonanza, Dezz names their character with the initials of Bert, Mysh, Adam and Dezz, without realizing the result is BMAD.
      • Once Dubz and Juan join in for the next stream, the name is extended to DJ BMAD.
  • Gender Bender: During the first Viet Crystal session, Bert caught a female Caterpie and a male Gastly. When he lost the save, he had to catch a male Caterpie and a female Gastly. Since he didn't record himself catching them again, this was interpreted as the two Pokemon having sex changes.
  • Gender Reveal: In this episode, they learn that Dob Gitar is a woman.
  • Genre Shift: For their Year of Streaming, they have made all of their major Let's Plays (except Chinese Emerald) livestreams. After doing several streams, they decided to mostly abandon YouTube (aside from future stream archives) in favor of becoming a mainly livestream-focused group.
  • Giant Food: The Gravity Burger, created during the Citizen Burger Disorder stream. Even though it mostly consists of empty space, the various food items floating 20 feet away from the central burger make it quite large.
  • A Good Name for a Rock Band: An Arabian Pop Band variation, Mujef and the Jellies.
    • Also, Magej and the Fieries, which gets created much later.
    • Squandering Transgressions
  • Harmony: They often sing and harmonize together. Examples shown here and here.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Dubz's microphone has tended to make some very strange sounds while he was playing Terraria:
    YouTube commenter: Dubz is really a duck.
    • During a Mario Party 2 stream, Mysh constantly spams Peach's "Yeah!"
    • Also caused by a note that is frozen on in Bootleg Pokemon Crystal (the one from the Bootleg Bonanza, not Viet Crystal).
  • Hilarious Outtakes: From the 1/19/13 stream announcement, the subscribe trailer, and the Spring 2013 stream announcement. All of them are longer than the actual videos.
  • Hope Spot: Happens three times in a row during the first battle against Karen. Bert's Gyarados is able to learn a move called "Frog," which they believe might be a very powerful and helpful move. In his haste, Bert accidentally forgets Mad, their only other powerful move. Thankfully, because Mad is Thrash, Gyarados is still able to use the move on the next Pokemon... which turns out to be a Gengar. Luckily, Bert is able to do some damage to Gengar with Frog... before Gengar uses Spite and removes the move's PP.
    • During the first Terraria PVP match, as soon as they reach the surface, Dezz falls down a hole and dies.
    • For the last Moemon Emerald Nuzlocke run, Dubz is fortunate enough to get Deoxys as his starter pokemon. Just as it seems Dubz is going to have a much easier time on this run, it turns out the randomizer had given many of the initial wild pokemon the move Dragon Rage, which does a fixed 40 HP of damage, and considering most pokemon level 5 and lower don't even have 30 HP...
  • Hurricane of Puns: During the Paper Mario stream, the gang starts making fun of Dubz, calling him a Casual. This leads the chat to start listing off names of different movies with Dubz and Casual added in.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Used frequently by Bert.
  • I Have Many Names: Lampshaded during the beginning of their Dead Space LP:
    Caleb (aka Mysh): Yeah, we got me, myself, and I, then Bert and Dubz.
    David Knapp (aka Dubz): Six people, now.
    Mysh: That's five.
    Bert: Glad you passed-
    Mysh: Oh, oh yeah, that's right, six, because we also have Mysh.
    Dubz: Yeah, we forgot to include you.
    Mysh: Oh, and Caleb! Oh and David Knapp- oh, dude, we have so many people!
    • Played with during Crash Bandicoot 2, when they list all of the names Bert has been called before making a bunch up by combining the different names.
  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: During Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Dubz kills Boomish due to not knowing how Blast Seeds work.
    • In Explorers of Sky, Moose inadvertently uses Thrash and kills Booper.
  • I Was Just Joking: During the TF2 Prop Hunt:
    Bert: Kipp, you need to take all of them down. Go out guns blazing.
    Kipp: Okay. [leaves his hiding spot and starts running around]
    Bert: I was joking, don't actually do it!
  • In the End, You Are on Your Own: Dubz had to finish SOMA and Dark Souls by himself due to Dezz being absent.
  • Intercontinuity Crossover: During his Pokemon Emerald Nuzlocke challenge with SenpaiPlz, Dubz ends up getting a Feraligatr which he decides is Oudal from Viet Crystal.
    • During Explorers of Sky, they decide the Grovyle that appears in the story is Kraut from Chinese Emerald.
  • Ironic Echo: "You dumbass!" - first said by Dubz during Undertale when Dezz tries to follow Sans at the beginning of the game, then said again later to Dubz when the Mad Dummy berates him for destroying his cousin's home.
  • Laugh Themselves Sick: Watch as Bert Dies From Fan Art.
    • Also happens to Dezz at the beginning of the Crash Bandicoot 2 Lost Episode.
    • Happens to Dubz and Hepna while playing Happy Wheels.
  • Let's See YOU Do Better!: During the 2013 Halloween Stream Announcement video, Dubz tells Mysh that his drawing is terrible. Mysh responds by asking if Dubz has drawn anything. He has.
  • Locked in a Room: Inverted; before the 2013 Summer Stream, everyone got locked out of Bert's home, delaying the stream for more than an hour while someone went to get a ladder.
  • Locked in the Bathroom: The gang theorizes that Dubz accidentally locked himself in Bert's bathroom during the Paper Mario stream.
  • Metaphor Gotten: A lame metaphor about ignored advice made by Bert is called back by Juan and expanded upon by Dezz:
    Juan: Bert, like, if you envision this right now, there's like a glass [that represents your advice], and Mysh just spit in the glass and threw it on the ground.
    Dezz: Actually, Mysh spit in the glass, put it into your butt, and then squeezed your butt together so that it shattered inside of you.
    Juan: Let's not forget about your pulsating butt.
    • Also happens when Dubz describes his relationship with Juan's brother:
      Dubz: I was like- he had a tick, and he's like, "You can stay."
      Dezz: "You can take this pocket of blood."
      Dubz: And then he gets Lyme Disease from me, and I don't know how that happened.
      Dezz: Where is this metaphor going?
  • Mind Screw: Early in Viet Crystal, Bert's Totodile learns a move called "Yuja," which turns out to be the move Rage. Later in the game, the same Pokemon is able to learn a move called "Rage". Bert ends up forgetting Rage to learn Rage.
  • Mondegreen Gag: In Episode 45 of Viet Crystal, Bert misreads "Now I have the strongest monster" as "Now I am the strongest monster."
    • In Crash Bandicoot 2, everyone mishears "crystal-less" as "chrysalis."

Shortly after, Adam opens the menu and looks at the trainer card. He closes the menu, causing the game to restart and return to the title screen, which now has a glitched color palette. This is when it really becomes clear there's something very wrong with the cartridge.
