  • The Nostalgia Critic:
    • Santa Christ wiping The Star Wars Holiday Special from the Critic's mind. Seeing as how the Critic was pretty much made to be abused... we guess even Doug and Rob have limits.
    • The ending of his "Commercials Special" is more obvious. After being nearly completely broken, he gets his confidence back through a song.
    • "Sequels Month" saw the Critic being put through the wringer by some incredibly bad movies. The next video after that was Dungeons & Dragons, in which he was upbeat, enthusiastic and thought the film was fantastic So Bad, It's Good fun.
  • Suburban Knights:
    • At the end of the film, Linkara finally gets to sing something.
    • Earlier, there was the reveal that That Dude in the Suede was the next guardian, which not only lead to a very sweet reunion for many of the reviewers, but meant that the very tired crew was spared one fight and were lead directly to the Gauntlet.

  • Fluffy Pony is based around cute little fluffies ponies suffering. When a story or picture comes along with any fluffies being happy without any drawbacks, it's like throwing a bone to the whole species.

  • Since Strippin agreed to model shirtless if the Yogscast raised over £80,000 in 2012 for charity, he was allowed to shave Tom (IBringTheFunk) when they raised over one million dollars the next year. Sparkles* lampshaded this.

    • In Part 5 of the "Chef Pee Pee Quits!" saga, Chef Pee Pee managed to get a job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza which turned out to be a dream job and was all he could have ever wanted, given the animatronics made him pizza and he was being appreciated. By the end of the episode, he still has the job. Too bad the place burned down by Part 6.
    • "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday Surprise!" has Bowser Junior realize it's Chef Pee Pee's Birthday and throw a surprise party for him. He screws up a lot while doing it, but Chef Pee Pee still enjoys the party.
  • Throughout Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Krillin's Butt-Monkey status has been punctuated with the "Krillin Owned Count", going up one every time something particularly bad happens to Krillin. However, at the end of the Cell Saga, Android 18 shows up at Krillin's doorstep to fulfill the promise she made to herself to rock his four-foot world if they both survived. Upon doing so, the Krillin Owned Count drops from its current count of 39 to 38. After the credits, it's nighttime, they're still going, the Krillin Owned Count has dropped to one, and, in one final climactic moment, is completely destroyed. Also, Krillin has a Gag Penis.
