Trivia / PewDiePie

Go To

  • Approval of God: Hat Films did a parody video of his opening pack video, itself a parody. He tweeted to say he found it funny.
  • Artist Disillusionment:

  • Attention Deficit Creator Disorder: He had a tendency of making at least two playthroughs at a time.
  • Banned in China: "Bitch Lasagna" and "Congratulations" were both banned in India following a court order to have them removed from YouTube.
  • Big Name Fan: Notch once said that he watches his videos, and when Pewdie asked if he was a Bro, he answered "Sure why not :D"
  • Colbert Bump: This happens to many of the independent games he plays, to the point that some developers have sent him beta builds of their games just to drum up excitement among the fans.
    • If it wasn't for him, no one would know who Nero's Day at Disneyland is. (Their song "Child Protective Services Theme" is his most famous Ending Theme, and their song "No Money Down Low Monthly Payments" was used as the theme song for an intro Pewdie would use for his horror game videos.)
  • Creator Backlash:
    • Felix denounced his previous Nazi jokes and declared his intent to distance himself from that kind of humor, both out of recognizing how unfunny they were and because they lumped him with groups of people he didn't wish to be associated with.

    • While he stated that he learned a lot from the experience, Pewds feels that Revelmode was the biggest mistake of his life and has gone on to say that he will not work on any more business ventures.
      It's like I already have a full-time job. I don't need another full-time job.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Ainsley's lines are spoken with female Siri.
  • Fan Community Nickname: The former widely-held term was "bros", with Felix's collective fanbase being deemed the "Bro Army", but it has since been substituted for "9-year-olds", stemming from Twitch streamer Alinity referring to his fanbase as such in an insulting manner, only for them to begin wearing it with pride.
  • The Merch: See here.
  • Milestone Celebration: He's made a couple videos for hitting a certain amount of subscribers, or at least thanked his bros directly.
  • Missing Episode:
    • Half of his Dead Rising 3 videos are either deleted or private, and there seems to be no explanation for what happened to them either.
    • Several of his Happy Wheels videos are marked private, despite the funny montages featuring clips from some of them.
    • His Cat Lady videos all disappeared with no explanation. Part 9 of Alice: Madness Returns also disappeared, though that one is speculated to have been due to a bogus copyright flag.
    • On September 16, 2016, Pewds purged several of his videos that he was no longer satisfied with, including excising entire playlists.
  • Old Shame:
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Felix wound up losing much of his support from YouTube and having Disney-owned Maker Studios sever ties with him after a controversial video that featured him paying two men to hold up a sign reading "Death to all Jews" as a joke. Other videos had contained controversial "jokes" like this, but the way this particular video blew up on social media was the breaking point that lead to YouTube, Disney, and parts of the fanbase distancing themselves from Felix.
  • Series Hiatus: Currently, he is putting Ni No Kuni and Kingdom Hearts on this. Had he remembered his save file when he moved, Alice: Madness Returns wouldn't be on this.
  • Streisand Effect: A firm believer of this trope as he references this hundreds of times when he calls out people for attempting to hide stuff only to end up having it exposed online, bringing far more attention to it.
  • Trolling Creator:
    • He titled a news video informing viewers that he would be away on a business trip for a few days "Bye Bye Forever" and than opened it with him announcing his retirement before doing a 180 just to mess with the fans.
    • Him announcing that he would delete his channel at 50 million subscribers. Once he hit 50 million, he held his end of the bargain and deleted his channel. His second channel, Jacksepticeye2.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The anti-Semitism controversy led to the shutdown of his YT network Revelmode and the cancellation of the second season of Scare PewDiePie, which was fully filmed and ready to release but will now never see the light of day.
    • In the light of XXXTentacion's death, Felix revealed that not only was he a fan of X, but X reportedly contacted him with hopes to livestream together, but Felix declined out of fear.
  • Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things:
    • He eventually turned off rated comments because he was sick and tired of spam on the channel, though he left general comments on at first.
    • He also removed comments because of some trolls accusing him of beating his girlfriend. He was understandably not amused.
    • PewDiePie was aware of the brony community when he played the Amnesia: The Dark Descent custom story The Small Horse and the Luna Games. He had his screen name long before the name Pinkie Pie became very well-known and therefore it is not derived from her name.
    • Pewds went berserk after some of his fans insulted one fan that Felix visited through the Make-A-Wish Foundation by mocking her appearance.
