Trivia / Ninja Sex Party

Go To

  • Acting for Two:
    • The post office worker and zookeeper in No Reason Boner are voiced and played by Brian Wecht, simply without his ninja mask on.
    • Though the Manticore's full face is never seen, he never is onscreen at the same time as Brian. At Magfest 13 Brian confirmed that he is indeed the Manticore and states that his wife "is super proud" of him.
    • Brian was also the weatherman in "Road Trip" when Danny pelvic thrust the state of Texas off the map.

    • Brian played a citizen of dysyopian no-boning world in 6969 music video.
  • Actor Allusion:
    • "Why is that guy naked?" in Let's Get This Terrible Party Started. The naked guy is played by Xan Alda.
    • From Let's Get This Terrible Party Started, Barry and Alex Kramer are part of the Jewish country band that are hired.
    • Ninja Brian as Albert Einstein in Dinosaur Laser Fight.
    • Danny as romance and Brian as science in Sex Training.
  • Big Name Fan: Childish Gambino was instrumental in growing the band's popularity when they were starting up; he posted the video for "The Decision" on his blog, leading to many more eyes being drawn to NSP, including Funny or Die.
  • Colbert Bump: According to Danny himself, the group took four years to get 40,000 Youtube subscribers. After joining Game Grumps, that number went up to 90,000 in the first month alone, and is currently sitting on over 200,000 subscribers. Exclusive fans of Arin's channel but not Grumps also found out about NSP from the insanely popular Luigi's Ballad video. As of 2018, they're sitting pretty on 1 million subs.

  • The Danza: Both Danny and Brian are played by people with the same names as them. While they are portrayed as entirely different people, there are some Actor Allusions that cross over into their characters; more so with Danny than Brian. For example, Danny is indeed really Jewish, and if his stories from Game Grumps are true, he has had some very interesting sexual escapades, if not exactly the same as those his character has had. Brian, as per his character, is indeed the band's actual keyboardist, and his day job is a theoretical physicist, making his dressing up as a scientist in Dinosaur Laser Fight a mild Actor Allusion.
  • Dawson Casting: Both played straight and averted in the "Danny Don't You Know" music video; young!Danny is played by the then 16-year-old Finn Wolfhard, the kid that bullies him is played by the then 29-year-old Nathan Sharp, and Ninja Brian apparently hasn't aged at all since high school, as he doesn't get a younger actor to play his counterpart.

  • Fan Nickname: The fans took to jokingly calling Danny's grandmother Granny Sexbang. When Danny told her this, she apparently loved it.
  • Missing Episode: Several:
    • Previously, they did a series of short videos called "20 Haikus in 20 Days", which was removed from their channel but has thankfully been preserved here.
    • Another series of short videos that has since been removed, "30 Second Seductions", has been preserved (with Italian subtitles) here.
    • A number of other announcements, skits and live performance videos have also since been unlisted, privatized or deleted from the channel. (Just compare this capture of their Uploads playlist which previously had 74 videos, many more than the channel has now.) These videos are seemingly lost for good, which is regrettable as they featured more in-character antics from Danny Sexbang and Ninja Brian.
  • Old Shame: Downplayed with "If We Were Gay". Danny said if he had written it now, he wouldn't have relied so much on gay stereotypes. Played straight with the original unreleased lyrics to the song which both Brian and Danny admit were not cool.
  • Playing Against Type: "Under the Covers" features nothing but covers of rather serious songs, such as "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and "Wish You Were Here". NSP, meanwhile, mainly focuses on comedic songs that heavily rely on Intercourse with You.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Finn Wolfhard is a huge fan of not only NSP but the rest of the Grumpverse projects. When he met the Grumps, Dan made the instant observation that Finn could easily pass as his little brother. This was eventually capitalized on, as Wolfhard was eventually commissioned to play a younger version of Danny in the music video for "Danny Don't You Know".
  • Prop Recycling: Danny's weapon in the Dragon Slayer music video is a replica of the Staff of Parthalan from Dragon Age II, lent to them by Holly Conrad, who made it for a cosplay in 2011. Unfortunately, Brian accidentally dropped and broke it after filming. Danny later wrote Holly a heartfelt apology letter.
  • Real-Life Relative:
    • They aren't kidding when they point out Danny's grandmother during Attitude City; apparently that is Danny's real-life grandma.
    • Subverted with Danny's mom in Unicorn Wizard, whom he isn't related to and is actually Brian's real-life wife. This didn't go unnoticed, and a few Epileptic Trees about Danny being Ninja Brian's son sprouted as a result.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • In the Game Grumps series for We Love Katamari, Danny lists off a bunch of rejected NSP song titles, which included such gems as Did I Fucking Say You Could Stop Partying?, Things Will Never Be the Same (I've Applied Too Much Ketchup to This Hamburger), There's Nothing Wrong with Making an Honest Living by Selling Illegal Drugs, and Party All Night (or Day, Depending on Your Availability).
    • Other potential song titles mentioned by Danny in other playthroughs include Can't Stop Won't Stop Might Stop, Zombie Handjob, and I'm Literally On Fire.
    • The third volume of Under the Covers was slated to include a cover of Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'", even scheduled to release alongside a corresponding music video, but the decision was made to withhold its release in light of the Leaving Neverland documentary and the subsequent re-arising controversy over Jackson's alleged actions.

How well does it match the trope?
