The channel has branched into several different series:
- Senzu Screams, wherein Krillin is forced to play Survival Horror games alone by Vegeta.note
- Renegade for Life, which features Vegeta doing one-shot playthroughs of various games. Named after a Mass Effect gag in Episode 21 of the main abridged series.
- Gan in 60 Seconds, featuring Ganxingba doing doing 60-second reviews of games.
- Goku's Gonna Show You, a spin-off on MasakoX's personal channel which nonetheless has the main team's support (and got a compilation video put up on the main lets play page to advertise it). Goku plays video games with his son as his protégé and is just generally... Goku, with Gohan acting as the oft-ignored voice of reason.
These series contain the following tropes:
- Actually Pretty Funny:
Nappa: So, do you like yourself?
- When Nappa tries to explain to Vegeta how he's a hipster:
Vegeta: Yes, of course.
Nappa: See? That makes you a hipster. Because... no one else does.
Vegeta: (Laughs loudly)
Vegeta: Shit, that's actually pretty good.
- In Chivalry, Vegeta calls another player a bastard. Nappa immediately points out that Vegeta's son is the bastard, getting a laugh out of Vegeta.
- When playing Diablo III, Nappa's character can train two dogs. He names them 'Bounty' and 'Hunter'.
- Gokū's The Godfather impression did not amuse Gohan when it was first made in Surgeon Simulator, but when Gokū did it during a bank robbery mission in OmniBus, Gohan admitted that it was actually pretty good that time.
- When Goku sees an image of a Groin Attack in Wiki How Quiz he asks Gohan if he remembers the time "Vegeta got kicked in the dick." Gohan states he wasn't around to see that, and Goku just states that Vegeta once got kicked in the dick. Gohan states this trope word for word.
- In Red Dead Redemption II , Vegeta bursted out laughing when his horse kicked a stranger to death after said stranger offered to help with his horse.
- A God Am I:
Nappa: Look at this shit! I'm a fucking God!!!
- Nappa jokingly implies this a couple of times.
- In Castle Crashers when he's riding on the crocodile he wails on a small horde of enemies with ease:
Nappa: Luckily I'm around to be your.....hehe.... I feel like I'm your Jesus at this point. I was gonna point out the irony of me constantly saving you, bringing you back to life.
- Then in Magicka, when Vegeta gets killed again and Nappa has to revive him for the hundredth time.
Vegeta: Shut up, Nappa......
Nappa: Where are you?Vegeta: I am everywhere.
- Krillin assumes this in Outlast after a glitch makes him immune to the mad doctor's attacks. It's worn off by the next installment, to his dismay.
- During Portal 2:
"Why didn't it summon me?"
- Krillin being armed in Dead Space and being able to stomp incredibly hard goes to his head very quickly.
- Vegeta spawns God in Scribblenauts Unlimited:
- Nappa jokingly implies this a couple of times.
- Almighty Janitor: Krillin comments on how he's doing better than all the dead soldiers around him in Dead Space.
- April Fools' Day: 2015's April 1st video was of Piccolo playing solitaire, with very little actual commentary.
- Artifact Title/Orphaned Series: While the channel started out with Two Saiyans Play, it has since branched off into several series, with Two Saiyans Play becoming far less frequent. Renegade for Life ended up taking over the Two Saiyans Play slot for five months, until it returned to the Dead island playthrough, itself having been orphaned for seven months thanks to the Portal 2 playthrough.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!: Pretty much sums up Vegeta's strategy for video games most of the time.
- Author Appeal: Vegeta's preference for Time Stands Still abilities in video games comes from Lanipator's own fondness of the power.
- Berserk Button: Vegeta really doesn't like being reminded that he's a member of Krillin's "Team 3 Star".
- The Berserker: This is Vegeta's playing style at all times, no matter what the game is. He quickly gets bored unless he can just go crazy attacking everything around whenever he wants.
- BFG: In their Magicka playthrough, Nappa has a gun, which Vegeta ends up getting. Most of the playthrough is them just shooting everything."Gun is clearly the best spell in the game."
- Big "NO!": Krillin breaks into fits of this whenever something scary and/or horrible is about to happen to him in the games he plays. Considering the genre of the games he's forced to play, this happens a lot.
- Big "WHAT?!": Krillin shrieks this when Kendra in Dead Space mentions he can't kill the current enemy he's battling because it can regenerate.
- Bilingual Bonus: Krillin speaks various Spanish words in the LP of Outlast ("Ocupado? Ocupado.") Makes sense; he's Hispanic.
- Black Comedy: Has it's moments. Sometimes shifts into Dead Baby Comedy.Nappa: *BUUUUUUUUURP* Sorry, I ate a baby earlier.
Vegeta: You need to stop eating those,. You need to cut them out of your diet.
- Bolt of Divine Retribution: Vegeta tries out a new lightning spell in Magicka and smites Nappa right off the map. The best part is the 6-second pause before Vegeta starts laughing maniacally.
Nappa: Hey, Vegeta?
- When Vegeta has a Villainous Breakdown at the end of Killing Floor they go back to playing Magicka again.
Nappa: Huh? Better?
Vegeta smites him off the map again.
- Break the Cutie: The whole point of the Krillin Plays series, really.
- Buffy Speak: Used by Krillin a lot.
- Bullying a Dragon: Vegeta has a tendency to bite off more than he can chew. He deliberately provokes a Witch in Left 4 Dead 2, and goes out of his way to shoot an elephant in Far Cry 4.
- Call-Back: A few callbacks to DBZ Abridged have shown up
- In Magicka, Vegeta repeats his "Rock you... like a hurricane" line.
- In Orcs Must Die!, When Nappa yells "BOOMSHAKALAKA!" Vegeta yells "DAKKA! DAKKA!"
- While playing Dead Space 3, Vegeta causes a massive traffic accident, causing Vegeta to quip "Renegade for life."
- Mocking Radtiz in Magicka, Killing Floor, and Dead Space 3.
- Vegeta chanting "Minemineminemineminemine" while grabbing ammo or activating Krieg's Buzz-Axe Rampage in Borderlands 2.
- Krillin's commentary on Outlast. "'Your only options are to run, hide or die.' Hurray! Back to Namek!"
- When Krillin saw Gohan's haircut in Season 2 he remarked that he looked like a young Moe Howard; Gohan retorted with "Well, look who's talking, Curly!" During the LPs he now tends to go "Whoop whoop whoop!" just like Curly did.
- Trunks gets mentioned in Dungeonland, and Bulma gets a mention in Dead Sky. Bulma gets mentioned by name in Portal 2.
- Krillin mentions his crush on Android 18 in part seven of Condemned.
- Gokū's run on Minecraft makes a couple of references to the Cooler movies.
- When explaining his concept of money in Papers, Please, Gokū begins with, "Ox-King has lots of it..." This is a reference to the Dead Zone Abridged movie, where he mentioned Ox-King's money as the reason he has a house.
- "Trucker Gokū" was inspired to play American Truck Simulator partially after seeing Android 13's trucker hat.
- In Don't Spill Your Coffee, Gokū's Vegeta impression refers to a few things like, "Goddamn it, Nappa!", "I AM THE HYPE", and "Team Three Star".
- In The Breakfast Club, Gokū mentions that his struggles with the game make him more angry than when he fought "Freezer".
Goku: But it's Ultimate, Gohan! Ultimate Gohan.
- Vegeta's unconvincingly-denied fear of worms in Dead Sky (he and Goku meet a whole family of giant worms during their "Fantastic Voyage" Plot, and he nearly pukes).
- On separate occasions, Gokū and Vegeta have brought up the idea of growing a beard, both times putting up a screenshot of them sporting beards in Dragon Ball Super.
- In Would You Rather?, he brings up that Trunks either has blue or pink hair, a reference to him inexplicably having blue hair in Dragon Ball Super.
- In OmniBus, Gokū frequently calls the eponymous bus the "Majin Bus", but Gohan's young voice during that same video indicates that it takes place prior to the Majin Buu Arc of the series.
- Goku's Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator video gives us this exchange:
Gohan: Uh-huh. "Ultimate" doesn't make it better.
Goku: Heh, you won't be saying that when you're older.
- The Cameo: Chi-Chi has a short line in "Goku's Gonna Show You" HunieCam Studio. Hnilmik reprises the role for this video.
- Car Fu: In Far Cry 4, Nappa saves Vegeta from an elephant (that he attacked) by ramming it with his car.
- Chainsaw Good/Deadly Disc:
Hey. Are you guys prepared? Because, I don't think that you were sufficiently warned. 'Cause, uh, today there is a, uh, high chance, probably about a 50 to 80% chance, OF CHAINSAAAAAAAAW! YA-HAHA!
- Krillin grows very fond of the Ripper, Dead Space's "buzzsaw gun".
- Likewise, after Punches Guy and Slows Down Time Guy, Chainsaw Hand Guy is probably Vegeta's third favourite character in Bro Force.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Goku. Unless Gohan can clue him in, he typically has no idea what he is doing.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Gohan tries to be this to Goku, but Goku rarely listens.
- Comedic Sociopathy:
- Most episodes have either Vegeta taking gleeful joy in killing his enemies, him and Nappa happily reminiscing about the various worlds they've slaughtered, or both.
- Krillin takes surprising delight in stomping people, enemies and corpses alike. In Part 6 he's surprised about not getting stuff when he kills a bunch of aliens. "These things are like undead pinatas!"
- The Comically Serious:
- Vegeta's insistence that he doesn't really care about playing these games makes his unspoken enjoyment of them that much more amusing.
- In Part 4 of Portal 2 he goes "Whee!" in a complete monotone while going through portals.
- A non-laughing variation, while playing Slender: The Arrival, a jump-scare gets Krillin so bad that Lani's real voice breaks through. And later in a slightly funnier one during DreadOut, where upon stumbling upon an in-game drawing of a Pony causes Lani to drop his Krillin voice for his Flat "What" reaction.
- This happens a lot in Revengeance, the only full playthrough on Renegade for Life. Many times, Lani accidentally drops Vegeta's inflection and simply sounds like an angrier, deep-voiced version of himself probably because Vegeta's voice isn't nearly as far off as Krillin's voice. Speaking of which, Krillin often coughs—albeit in the correct voice—because maintaining the voice for so long irritates Lani's throat.
- Cowardly Lion: Krillin, during Dead Space. It helps that this is the first game he's given where he gets to fight back.
- Cluster F-Bomb: Vegeta during his huge breakdown at the end of Killing Floor.
Vegeta: Hey fuck-wit! I got something to show you!
- Vegeta also swears a lot when he meets Otto (a boat who doesn't think he can float) in Pajama Sam in No Need To Hide When It's Dark Outside
(throws a wooden board in the water, and it floats)
Vegeta: HOLY FUCKING SHIT!
- Daddy Issues:
Nappa: That guy up there is your father.
- During the Castle Crashers playthrough.
Vegeta: Alright, hold on... *starts jumping to try and kill the king* ERGH! ARGH!
Nappa: And just like your father, you can't reach him.
Nappa: Your dad is looking disapprovingly at...
- Again in Trine 2. Nappa is trying to get Vegeta to yell "I am a warrior", and Vegeta's being completely deadpan until...
Vegeta: I! AM A WARRIOR!
- Deadpan Snarker: Krillin when he isn't screaming in terror. Gohan also gets in a lot of dry digs at Gokū.
Gohan: Dad, quit dodging the subject.Gokū: Says the kid who can't.
- In Don't Spill Your Coffee, Gokū of all people pulls this off.
- Deep-Immersion Gaming: The characters react as if they can feel everything that their player characters are feeling or suffering in-game.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In Scribblenauts, Vegeta kills a Shoggoth from the Cthulhu Mythos and later a rampaging God.
- Driven to Suicide: In The Stanley Parable Vegeta completely loses it in the face of his choices having no purpose, and decides that he controls his fate by diving to his death shouting "RENEGADE FOR LIFE!"
- Dull Surprise: Nappa when playing Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
- Dumbass Has a Point: Goku does rightly complain about the poor controls Surgeon Simulator.
- Dumbass No More: Nappa, and how.
- Easily Forgiven: Krillin and Nappa get along fairly well in the Two Baldies Play series, despite Nappa killing most of Krillin's friends and beating him to a pulp back in the Saiyan Saga, and screwing him out of his money at the end of the Dead Zone special.
- Eats Babies: Nappa, apparently.
- Epic Fail:
Vegeta: WHO DID THIS TO ME?!
- Vegeta and Nappa's first attempt at Dungeonland... doesn't exactly go very well. Their second and third playthrough go much better for them.
- And Vegeta really doesn't like it when their attempt to play SimCity is thwarted by EA's early cloud issues.
Nappa: That would be EA.
Vegeta: WHO THE FUCK IS EA?! I'M GONNA KILL 'EM...
- Their playthrough of Killing Floor had them getting absolutely slaughtered for the first few rounds. They get a little better at it.
- Vegeta's less than stellar playing of Chivalry.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Vegeta is absolutely livid when he catches wind of Krillin dissing his mom through his playthrough of Among the Sleep. Also, he genuinely bonds with Toriel while doing his Undertale video and adds in that he misses his birth mother. When he's unable to figure out how to spare her and she dies, he ends up quitting the game because it left him genuinely upset.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Nappa's not really "evil" anymore per say, but was rather disgusted by Vegeta repeatedly stomping on all of the corpses they find in Dead Space 3.Nappa: Get in here!
Vegeta: (stomping on corpses) Hold on, this is totally necessary.
Nappa: What are you doing? (Sees what Vegeta's doing) Oh what the fuck dude...
Vegeta: It's their fault.
- Doesn't stop him from joining in at one point though. "When in Rome!"Nappa: Oh, we're fucked up. Let's get the fuck out of here.
- In Dishonored, Vegeta starts with an Evil Laugh while watching an enemy being overwhelmed with rats. By the time they've completely skeletonized the corpse, he's a lot quieter.
- In This War of Mine, Vegeta casts Cveta, who "Loves Children", out of the house the instant he reads her profile.
- In Until Dawn, Vegeta calls a squirrel a target on the makeshift shooting range. He then shoots a bag of sand instead and says "You thought I was going to shoot the squirrel, didn't you? Shame on you."
- When playing Undertale, Vegeta is actually touched by Toriel's kindness and doesn't want to kill somebody who was so nice to him. When he fails to figure out how to use the Mercy option and does kill her, he quits the game is implied to be hurt by what he did.
- Doesn't stop him from joining in at one point though. "When in Rome!"
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Vegeta's playthrough of Undertale has him bewildered by Toriel's kindness.Vegeta: A room, a home? A-a bed? I-I havent had a bed since I was a kid. A piece of pie... she just left it for me. I don't understand. Why would you just lea- what is the purpose of giving me these things?! What have I done for you?
- Evil Laugh:
- Later editions of the Renegade for Life series have a title card in which Vegeta engages in this trope, followed by the episode title card. The Rogue Legacy episode has one partway through that lasts about thirty seconds.
- Gokū will occasionally sport an Evil Laugh when he gets revenge on a game that frustrates him, like when he went on a rampage at the end of I Am Bread.
- Fan Community Nickname: Krillin calls his viewers the 'Krillers'.
- Fantastic Racism: More so than in the the main series, Vegeta makes it clear he looks down on humans. When play Undertale he laughs at the idea of humans winning The Great Off Screen War with monsters, and decides to name his character "Worthless" mocking them for being human, and settles for "stupid" because of the character limit. When playing Job Simulator Vegeta goes ballistic at being called a human.
- The Farmer and the Viper: Vegeta makes it a point to kill everyone, including those who helped him. Nappa will occasionally lampshade it, but he goes along with it.
- Karma catches up in Chivalry, when their teammate Martel takes a while to realize they're playing on teams.
- Subverted in the Undertale video. Vegeta starts out not caring much for Toriel and you probably think he'll kill her without remorse when they come to blows. While he does end up killing her, he's become so attached that it causes him to go into a Villainous BSoD.
- Flipping the Bird: "Doctor Gokū" makes his hand do this once and laughs childishly in Surgeon Simulator A&E (Anniversary Edition).
- Forced to Watch: Vegeta insists that Nappa watch as he murders one of his worms in Worms Reloaded.Vegeta: WATCH. HIM DIE.
- Backfires some when he gets damaged and knocked into the perfect location for Nappa to drop a stick of Dynamite in and run, ending the round and the set.
- Freudian Excuse: Vegeta, as shown at the end of Krillin Plays Among the Sleep.
- Gass Hole: Nappa randomly belches a couple of times. When playing Dead Space 3 he claims that when he gets scared, he gets "burpy".
- Gilligan Cut: In Scribblenauts Unlimited, Vegeta is doing a mission where he has to help a couple have a nice date. Cut to him having somehow summoned a bear-riding Cthulhu and a T-Rex.
- Gratuitous Japanese: In Baldies Play P.T., Nappa answers his phone say saying, "Mosh(i) mosh(i)." That is the typical phrase Japanese people say when they answer a phone.
- In The Stanley Parable, Vegeta answers a phone and says, "Hello? Mosh(i) mosh(i), Vegeta des(u)."
- Guide Dang It!: Krillin starts playing Five Nights At Freddy's on Day 2, and as a result misses out on the vital bit of information that you're supposed to close the doors only when you're sure that there's an animatronic lurking right outside, not keep them closed the entire night (Otherwise, this would be the easiest game in the world). Needless to say, he doesn't make it.
- Heroic BSoD:
- Krillin gets quite a few of these, but notably in Dead Space when fighting the Leviathan; he tries everything to kill it and gets so stressed that he just doesn't care anymore and dies by it. It takes a second try for him to bring him out of the depression.
- Vegeta has one at the end of Pajama Sam. After growing increasingly exasperated at all of the weird happenings in the game he finds a room full of dancing furniture... and just sits there in silence for several seconds.
- He also get this at times during The Stanley Parable, especially when he triggers a couple endings.
- Hidden Depths: For as much as a dumbass as he is normally. Nappa is pretty knowledgeable and skilled at Video Games and is usually the one who introduces them to Vegeta.
- Hipster: Nappa basically calls Vegeta a Saiyan hipster, since he's the only person who calls Goku "Kakarot".
- Hope Spot: Krillin gets this in the finale of Outlast as he's making his way towards the asylum exit. And then the SWAT team are on the other side of the door.
- Hurricane of Puns:
- Krillin attempts to start one in Outlast after the evil doctor gets cut in half. He runs out of steam quickly, but the comments pick up the slack.
- Gokū's videos in general contain a lot of these, which Gohan quickly tires of.
- Renegade for Life Catlateral Damage begins with Vegeta making a bunch of "cat" puns.
- Hypocritical Humor:Vegeta: How hard can this be? I'm a great dad!
- Chichi yells at Goku about playing a game like Huniecam Studio, when it's hinted she's the one who bought the game in the first place.
- In-Character Let's Play: The series is this in a nutshell. Specifically, the cast of DBZ Abridged play video games as the characters they portray.
- Ignore the Fanservice: When playing Senran Kagura Bon Appetit, Goku pays little attention to the game's fanservice and is far more attracted to its Food Porn. He actually finds the characters' frequent Gainaxing off-putting because he was traumatized by the recent lengthy sex outing with Chi-Chi.
- In Love with Your Carnage: Vegeta gets a bit... carried away in Bro Force, culminating in A God Am I.
- For all his mockery of Guldo in the main series, Vegeta's favorite mechanic tends to be the one where he can slow down time.
- Vegeta, awesome though he may be, tends to lose, screw up, and Rage Quit the games he plays. Meanwhile, Krillin is surprisingly competent and skilled in the horror games he plays, and almost always finishes full playthroughs of them.
- Insult Backfire: When Goku and Vegeta play Tekken 7, Goku does his impression of Vegeta. Offended, Vegeta attempts to insult Goku by impersonating him. Goku's response is that Vegeta's impression of him is accurate in how he is but doesn't sound like him telling him to work on it. Vegeta then tells Goku that he and Nappa laugh at him behind his back. This doesn't bother Goku either and only results in making Vegeta even angrier.Goku: Meh. It's always good to poke fun of other people.Vegeta: FUCK YOU!
- It Amused Me: Vegeta's justification for making Krillin play Five Nights at Freddy's, even though he's already playing Condemned.
- Jerkass: Vegeta, no suprise. Nappa, surprisingly, has his moments too.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Vegeta playing The Division legitimately raises complains about how poorly the game runs.
- "Jump Off a Bridge" Rebuttal: Goku's OmniBus playthrough gives us an example of a kid doing this to their parent. Goku shoots a pretty big hole in Gohan's argument: he can fly.
- Jump Scare: Krillin gets very, very sick of them during Outlast. "WHY DO PEOPLE FEEL THE NEED TO DO THAT?"
- Karma Houdini: Vegeta hasn't received any direct comeuppance for forcing Krillin to play scary games.
- Lame Pun Reaction: Gohan frequently has these towards Gokū's endless Hurricane of Puns.Gokū: You did that, Mr. Sensor! You should be... censored!Gohan: Dad, that was terrible and you should feel bad!
- Large Ham: Vegeta naturally. He continues to embody Evil Is Hammy.
- Laser-Guided Karma: In Portal 2 Vegeta doesn't tell Nappa that he needs to use portals to get to the other side of two moving platforms, worked by a laser guided cube. When Vegeta figures it out, Nappa gets his revenge by taking the cube off.Vegeta (panicking): NO! NO! NO! NO! PUT IT BACK ON! PUT IT BACK ON! PUT IT BACK ON! PUT IT BACK ON! PUT IT BACK ON! (Nappa throws the cube into the polluted water) I'M GONNA KILL YOU! YOU SON OF A BITCH! (Vegeta's character ATLAS drowns and short circuits in the polluted water)
- Let's See YOU Do Better!: During Krillin's playthrough of The Evil Within 2, he struggles with the boss battle against Stefano until a frustrated Vegeta comes in and demands the controller to show him how it's done. Krillin gladly obliges, only to be left gob-smacked when Vegeta actually manages to beat the boss in only two tries; to rub salt in the wound, he did it using the same strategy Krillin had tried several times before and failed withnote .
- Lost in Character: Vegeta playing Yandere Simulator likes its Villain Protagonist and starts getting too into character, developing an actual crush on Senpai and turning into a Shrinking Violet when he's around her.
- Krillin has a more mild version of this, but generally he will always treat a protagonist's loved ones as important, even if he just found out they existed.
- Motor Mouth: Krillin, who admits he's "twitchy" when he's scared.
- Murder Is the Best Solution: As would be expected, Vegeta approaches every problem with a "Can I murder this?" attitude.
- My God, What Have I Done?:
- Krillin expresses horror and remorse when he kills Amy.
- Gokū's reaction at the end of Undertale parodies this. Gohan initially thinks that he's remorseful about killing Toriel, only to learn that he's more upset about not being able to return to the pie.
- Mythology Gag:
- Never My Fault: Gokū constantly blames Gohan for his own screw-ups in The Breakfast Club, claiming that Gohan is shaking the table.
- "No. Just... No" Reaction: Nappa and Krillin's shared reaction to just about anything throughout P.T..Krillin: Nope-ing! Nope-ing pretty hard!
- Not So Above It All: Vegeta constantly seems annoyed by Nappa's childish antics, sighing in resignation often. Then along comes the Portal 2 playthrough, where he joins in when Nappa hums or sings tunes. Vegeta even seems to cut Nappa off in order to get to say "TURTLE POWER!" when Nappa hums the tune to the 80s TMNT TV show.
- No, You: Vegeta and Nappa call each other gay during Dead Space 3
- Oh, Crap!: Krillin in Alien: Isolation during the flashback level. As Marlow, he's being lowered down a hole and already doesn't like where he's going. Then he sees the egg chamber below and screams to be pulled back up.
- On a Scale from One to Ten: In his playthrough of Alien: Isolation, Krillin at one point declares:"On a scale of one to ten, fuck this!"
- Overly Long Gag: The 'Corpse Balcony' joke from the Dishonored Renegade for Life.
- Parental Neglect:
Vegeta: Apparently I have some like kid or something now. It's weird.
- Trunks gets mentioned a few times. Vegeta completely ignores him.
Nappa: Did you name him Vegeta like your father always wanted?
Vegeta I don't know what the damn thing's name is!
- Gokū gets called out on this by Gohan constantly.
- Parental Sexuality Squick: Whenever Gokū talks about his and Chi-Chi's sex life in Would You Rather?, Gohan quickly yells at him to stop.
- Pet the Dog: Vegeta does this literally at the end of his Red Dead Redemption II video.
- Pungeon Master: Gokū is very fond of making puns in his videos, especially puns that involve food. Gohan usually considers them to be forced and incredibly lame.
- Quip to Black: Krillin attempts this during the Whistleblower DLC after the Groom dies."Well. Looks like you...just got penetrated! YEEAAAAAAH - I'm leaving."
- Rage Quit: Vegeta gives up on Dark Souls II when the pigs turn out to be Super Persistent Predators. He eventually does the same in Rogue Legacy, audibly dropping the controller after one death too many. In fact, he often does these when he gets frustrated with a game.
- Rapid-Fire "No!": Nappa and Krillin during P.T.
- Refuge in Audacity: When tasked with healing someone in Scribblenauts Unlimited Vegeta-stuck for ideas-summons God. He then has to fix a robot and summons Robot God. He is later forced to kill God when God runs around beating up civilians.
- Reminiscing About Your Victims: Nappa and Vegeta will frequently say that whatever situation they're in reminds them of some planet they've conquered or battle they were in, and then usually reminisce about it quite happily.
- Repetitive Name: Kyle Kyleson (of the Kyle clan) gives Vegeta and Nappa a lot of grief during Chivalry. Fear him!
- Rock Falls Everyone Dies: The beginning of Borderlands 2, which features the four main characters getting blown up in a train. While they're supposed to survive, the Nappa and Vegeta (who play the DLC characters that don't appear in the opening cinematic) treat them as dead for good.
- Running Gag:
- Every time Krillin or Vegeta picks up a phone, they use the Japanese honorific for answering, "Moshi Moshi, Krillin/Vegeta Desu."
- Games in which Vegeta plays as an animal of some sort usually have him referring to himself as "[insert animal name here]-geta". Examples include "Bear-geta" and "Cat-geta". Goku also does this once, calling himself "Goat-ku".
- In various games, Goku has taken to referring to himself as "___ Goku", with the ___ being some occupation he has in the game, like "Doctor Goku" and "Trucker Goku".
- Gohan making passive-aggressive remarks about his neglectful father.
- Sanity Slippage:
- Throughout the entire Killing Floor playthrough, Vegeta's determination to have fun slowly wanes into desperation until the very end, where he's screaming angrily that they're having fun, while Nappa is sobbing and begging for it to end.
- Krillin, by way of Vegeta locking him and forcing him to play Slender: The Arrival, has shown this in spades throughout the playthrough. It's very noticeable during the second episode, when he survives a 17 minutes of a full-aggro Slender Man after he has trouble finding the last page.
- The end of Outlast had him screaming "TASTE MY VENGEANCE, MOTHERFUCKERS! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!"
- The Stanley Parable inflicts this on Vegeta, as he comes to realize the game is actively screwing with him and countering all his decisions.
- Sarcastic Clapping: Vegeta does this after Pajama Sam's Epic Fail of attempting to mine gold and almost immediately breaking the pickaxe he needs to do so.
- Seen It All: After getting over his initial fear of any given video game, Krillin tends to revert to this. Notably against a very large monster in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard he invokes his real-life experiences as compared to the game.Krillin: You're not bad for a giant *shotgun blast*, but I fight guys bigger than me ALL THE TIME! *shoots out one of the monster's eyes* WOOHOO! You know how many times I've fought people bigger than me, Jack? Every time except Chiaotsu!
- Sir Swears-a-Lot:
- Vegeta, and how. Nappa's got a bit of a foul mouth too, but not as bad as Vegeta.
- Krillin has quite a mouth on him as well, especially when he's panicking and running from or taunting his pursuers.
- She is Not my Wife: Nappa asks in Dead Sky what Vegeta would do during a zombie invasion, and Vegeta responds that he'd leave the planet. Then he asks what would happen if it happened on earth where Bulma is, thinking she was his wife, and Vegeta denies their marriage with a "Ha!"
- Shout-Out: Plenty, including during Portal 2 Vegeta where gets several attempts at a task wrong, then when he gets it right he says: "Yeah! First try!"
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: Krillin tells Dr. Mercer to shut up in Part 34 of Dead Space after he's all "blah, blah, blah, church this, transcend death that..."
- Slavery Is a Special Kind of Evil: During Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Nappa comments that despite taking over worlds, they never turned the defeated populations into slaves, which Freeza did. Vegeta agrees, they never treated them like slaves, they just killed them.
- Sore Loser:
- In the Chivalry video, a player going by "Art of War" tried to have Vegeta kicked from the game after failing to kill him.
- Unsurprisingly, Vegeta and Nappa themselves are both pretty poor losers, especially in fighting games. Vegeta is more inclined to shouting, while Nappa makes excuses like his controller being unplugged (it's wireless).
- Space Whale Aesop: Krillin suggests one for the Abandoned Mine level in Slender: The Arrival."There might be an environmental message to this! Don't sell your land to mining companies, or else the Slender Man will get you."
- Stealth Insult: Gohan gets many opportunities to pithily comment on his father's absence and stupidity.
- Stunned Silence: Of all the absurd things Vegeta had to witness in Pajama Sam in No Need To Hide When It's Dark Outside, the final room he enters, with the dancing furniture, just leaves him speechless.
- Take That!:
- The Killing Floor episode is basically one giant one to the game's incredibly punishing difficulty.
- The brief SimCity (2013) episode exists as a jab against Electronic Arts's dysfunctional DRM for the game.
- In Worms Reloaded, Nappa names his team "Nappa's Ghosts" in which he names the worms on his team "Casper the Friendly Ghost", "The Chick from The Ring", "Slimer from Ghost Busters", then the last one is "Val Kilmer's career".
- In The Division Vegeta repeatedly mocks the game's drop in frame rate and other technical issues. At the end of the video, Lanipator even breaks character to note how high end his PC is and just how hard it was to get even a consistent frame rate.
- In XCOM 2 Vegeta praises the aliens for doing things better than humans would have, claiming that humans idea would have been Oh, we're gonna build a planetary defense shell, and Mars is going to pay for it. At the end he quits when he sees he's playing as the humans, believing they are terrorists, comparing their leader to the the Grand Wizard.
- Tastes Like Chicken: In Bear Simulator, Vegeta invokes this about...an actual chicken.
- Team Killer: Vegeta, unsurprisingly.
- Tempting Fate:
- Whenever Krillin gets cocky during Outlast, it usually backfires on him pretty quickly.
- In the finale for Dead Space, Krillin is confident that whatever's coming next can't be worse than the ending he just experience. Cue the Outlast: Whistleblower DLC.
- Krillin is very happy to get the flamethrower in Alien: Isolation and uses it frequently...not realizing that over-use of the weapon makes the alien's AI used to it, and in later levels it starts just hovering outside the range of the fire, waiting for him to run out.
- That Came Out Wrong:Krillin: (killing zombie babies) You can call me the child predator - NO. No, you can't call me that. I have changed my mind.
- This Is Gonna Suck:
- Spoken word-for-word early in the Worms Reloaded LP.
- Every single one of Krillin's LPs. He's usually right on the money.
- Time Stands Still: Vegeta's favourite videogame super power. He has a blast with it in Bro Force, Dishonored, Rogue Legacy and especially in Super Hot.Vegeta: (reading a character description) "Stop time", you say? (begins Evil Laugh)
- Took a Level in Badass: Krillin in Dead Space. That's right, Krillin. In fact, despite being forced into playing the horror games, he's quite competent at them. By Outlast he's jeering his enemies after moments of victory/relief.
- Becomes a pattern in many of his horror game playthroughs: initially he's scared, then he gets over it and becomes determied to kick monster butt. Though the occasional jump scare or gross moment might still get him.
- Took a Level in Kindness:
- Nappa actively does less to annoy Vegeta and attempts to play cooperatively most of the time. He still tries to Troll Vegeta on occasion, though.
- Vegeta himself takes a level while playing Surgeon Simulator.
- Verbal Tic: Krillin seems to be a fan of saying, "Nope" a lot, and he sings his thoughts when he's nervous.
- Video Game Cruelty Potential: Shamelessly exploited at every opportunity, even by Krillin at times.
- Villainous Breakdown:
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Nappa's convinced that he and Vegeta are this, though Vegeta doesn't do anything to show that he considers Nappa a pal. However, Vegeta does seem to show less contempt towards Nappa than he does in Dragon Ball Z Abridged's first season.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Aside from the frequent remarks about Gokū's neglectful parenting, Gohan will occasionally call him out on certain decisions made in the games.
- In HunieCam Studio, Gohan warns him that the basic premise of the game is that he's being a pimp. Later, Gohan yells at him for getting one of his camera girls infected with gonorrhea, and then for having no concept of money.
- He gets called out on his insulting depictions of Vegeta and Bulma in Don't Spill Your Coffee!
- Gohan gets very upset when Gokū decides to kill Toriel in Undertale.
- When All You Have is a Hammer : In Scribblenauts Unlimited, Vegeta's go-to solution for most problems is Shoggoth.
- Who's Laughing Now?: The further Krillin gets into Dead Space, the more he starts using it as a way to vent his frustrations."COWER! Cower before the might of Krillin! FEEEAAAR MEEEEE!"
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?:
Vegeta: When you get to hell, you better arrange a welcoming party! BECAUSE I'M GOING TO BE SENDING FRIENDS! ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR LOVED ONES, EVERYONE YOU'VE EVER KNOWN OR CARE ABOUT—who happens to be a worm—IS GOING TO MEET YOU DOWN THERE! (bang!) Tell them I said "hi".
- Vegeta's fear of worms shows up in Dead Sky and Diablo III, although strangely he was fine playing Worms Reloaded. It reappears in Heavy Bullets when he discovers the "snakeworms", declaring war on all worms.
- He apparently doesn't like clowns much either, as shown in Scribblenauts Unlimited.
- Why Won't You Die?: Both Vegeta and Krillin have yelled this out. For example, in Dead Space part 31, The Doctor is In!, Krillin gets attacked by a Hive Mind after he killed the Leviathan.Krillin: WHY?! FUCK OFF! (sobbing) I killed you! I don' like this! I keep killing things and they keep coming back for more!
- Worthy Opponent: Vegeta's opinion of Senator Armstrong, who he flat-out calls the greatest villain of all time.
- Your Mom: Nappa drops a lot of these at Vegeta.
