  • Creator Backlash: To say Chris is not a fan of his early videos would be an understatement.
    • Chris was not happy with how he acted on his Bethesda E3 2017 reaction stream, to the point where he decided to delete the first half from Twitch.
    • A similar situation happened with a Kingdom Hearts III Critical Mode stream.

  • Creator Breakdown: During a livestream where he decided to play Kingdom Hearts III on Critical Mode, viewers commenting on the stream audio lead Chris to get quite upset and begin venting his frustrations. He quickly realized how he was acting and apologized before ending the stream and apologizing again on Twitter, where he also mentioned he was taking an indefinite hiatus from streaming (with the only exception thus far being Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct).

  • Executive Meddling: Chris stated that if given a choice, he would've done the Nutaku-sponsored video on HuniePop. Instead, Nutaku had Chris play the Android game Tits N Tanks, despite the fact that Chris did not own an Android device.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Chris has gone on several purges delisting/privatizing older videos of hisnote . While some of these videos are simply unlisted and can still be viewed, most of these videos have been privated and cannot be viewed unless someone has already downloaded them.

  • Milestone Celebration: Has had multiple videos celebrating a certain amount of subscribers:
    • Blooper Reel 2012 was his 1,000 subscriber special. It has since been removed.
    • He made a short video announcing his second channel as his 2,000 subscriber special. Just like the above, it has since been removed.

    • The Smash Masters of YouTube was his 5,000 subscriber special.
    • The long-anticipated Rosario+Vampire Capu 2 was released as his 10,000 subscriber special.

  • Old Shame: How he views most of the videos he’s removed from his channel, and even how he views many of the videos currently on his channel.

  • One-Episode Wonder: The fate of both Pros+Cons and Fiddles.

  • Orphaned Reference:
    • The thumbnail to his now unlisted Blaz Blue Chrono Phantasma Adrenaline Shot appears briefly in his Smash Masters of Youtube video.

    • Chris talks about Persona 5 fanfiction in his Smash Ultimate Joker DLC review wearing the same outfit he once wore in his Smashing Fiction videos. He also appears in the same location that was seen in the quickly cancelled revival of said series.
    • In Top 10N Scary Moments In Video Games (As A Kid), Chris states that he still did not have Pokémon X and Y yet. This was a reference to his removed Most Anticipated Videos of 2013 video where he said he was excited for X and Y.

  • Schedule Slip: Chris constantly brings up the fact that his videos are typically weeks late.
    • He promised a half-hour long video on Kingdom Hearts during his reactions to the reveal of a Toy Story world in Kingdom Hearts III with the tentative release date of "definitely before KH3, that's for sure". As of October 8th, 2019note , he has still yet to release the video. On a livestream on August 25th, 2019, he mentioned that it will now come out sometime after the Re:MIND DLC comes out.
    • Chris had planned to stream the first three Spyro the Dragon games to 100% Completion on June 29th, 2018 in celebration of Spyro Reignited Trilogy being announced. However, things kept getting in the way, causing it to be postponed to August of the same year, and then finally happening on September 22nd. Luckily for him, Reiginited Trilogy was postponed as well from September 21st, 2018 to November 13th, 2018, giving him enough time to stream the games before its release regardless.

  • Sequel Gap:
    • Super Smash Bros 4 Stage Reviews (Part 2: Wii U) was released on March 29th, 2015. The follow-up, Every Smash Bros. Stage Reviewed in 10 Words or Less, was released on November 19th, 2018note . He naturally lampshades this in the beginning of the latter video.
    • To celebrate the announcement of the Reignited Trilogy, Chris started streaming himself beating the original three Spyro the Dragon games to 100% Completion on September 22nd, 2018. It ended up taking longer than he expected, leading him to only get through the first two games. He would return to stream Spyro 3 on November 11th, 2018, 1 month and 21 days later.
