  • Colbert Bump:
    • Has given one to Cute Fuzzy Weasel during his Admirable Animations video on "Trolls".
    • If the YouTube comments are anything to go by, he gave God, the Devil and Bob one as well.
    • His Admirable Animation is often meant to be this. And in his Web Animation sub-series, this is the entire purpose.
    • His presence on the site Zippcast prompted many people to become aware of the site's existence, and when his "Herpe, The Love Sore" review was posted, the barrage of traffic that the review brought convinced the site's administrators to upgrade their servers.

    • Any obscure and otherwise forgotten about show featured on Animated Atrocities gets this treatment, if only for the Bile Fascination.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer:
    • In his Bubsy review, he called it a ripoff of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic did not air until the following year.
    • In his Q&A video, he used Planes as an example of Pixar Jumping the Shark. The film, while Pixar creator John Lasseter's idea, was actually made by Disneytoon Studios with no involvement from Pixar.
    • Also in his review of "One Coarse Meal", he claims that SpongeBob ruined Squidward's TV show in the episode "Tentacle-Vision". In the latter episode, SpongeBob wasn't at fault for Squidward's TV show being ruined; he was perfectly happy being the soundman. Squidward's problems were because the other characters (Mr. Krabs, Sandy, Pearl, Plankton, and eventually everyone else in Bikini Bottom) saw the show and decided to barge in and take it over.

    • In his review of The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, he mentions that Disney released over 30 Direct to Video sequels in the 2000s. While they were definitely being churned out in that time period, the number's actually closer to twenty.
    • In his Admirable Animations review of "A Kind Mamodo, Kolulu" he mentioned it takes place before Sherry and Brago appear. The episode actually aired a couple of episodes after the two's debut appearance.
    • In his "Top 11 Worst Episodes Reviewed" video, he mentions that Mr. Krabs has fired Squidward and SpongeBob before in "Can You Spare a Dime" and "Welcome to the Chum Bucket," respectively. However, while SpongeBob and Squidward left their jobs, they weren't fired: Squidward quit after being accused of stealing by Krabs (though Krabs would've probably fired him anyway), and SpongeBob was forced to work at the Chum Bucket after Krabs bet (and lost) SB's contract to Plankton.

    • In his "Fart Baby" review, he constantly mixes up the titular duo's names throughout the review. This didn't go without lampshading in later videos.
    • In his "Arnold Betrays Iggy" review, he states that the city the show takes place in is Aron City and that it's based on New York City. The city Hey Arnold! is set in is named Hillwood, and it's a mix of many different cities in the Pacific Northwest, such as Seattle and Portland. He later corrects this in his Nick-O-Rama review of the show, where he explains that, while he had a realistic reason for citing New York City as the basis for Hillwood (Gerald referred to the city having "millions of people" in it, and the aesthetic is closer to New York), he doesn't know why he called it Aron City.
    • In his "Top 25 Most Disturbing Episodes" list the captions referred to "Life with Feathers" as a Silly Symphony. It's actually from Looney Tunes, which he correctly refers to it as.
    • At the end of his "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 2000's" list, the transition song is falsely credited to They Might Be Giants, when it was actually written by Stuart Hill and performed by Garrett Freireich. Somewhat justified, as the song is frequently credited to They Might Be Giants. He later acknowledged this at the end of his Top 10 Worst Episodes of Ed, Edd n Eddy list, which uses the same transition song.
    • In his "Staring at the Future" review, he finds the whole thing of Future Robin being in a relationship with Batgirl to just be a stupid joke. It's actually a reference to the fact that Dick Grayson (the Robin featured in the show) and Barbara Gordon (the current Batgirl) have dated each other in the comics.
    • In his review of the My Life Me episode "The Pom Pom Girl", he claims that when people get angry in anime, the Cross-Popping Veins go on the side of the head, never the fist. It's actually somewhat common in anime to have the veins on the fist, where it represents someone having the urge to punch something or just plain getting angry.
    • In "Top 20 Worst Cartoon Theme Songs", he claims that dubbed opening of Rurouni Kenshin is unfitting for an action series. Not only is the song almost identical in Japanese, but much of the series is about Kenshin trying to make a life for himself, which the song is supposed to be about. It doesn't help that Mr. Enter admitted that he knew next to nothing about the series itself. That being said, this doesn't make his actual criticisms about the singer's voice or the music not matching the actual visuals in any way legitimate.
    • In his "Grounded" review, he says that the Chief is voiced by the same guy who voices Cotton Hill. They're actually voiced by two completely different actors (the former is voiced by Brian Doyle-Murray and the latter is voiced by Toby Huss).
    • At the end of his review of "The Big Switch-A-Roo", he refers to the Donkey Kong Country cartoon as Donkey Kong Country: Legend of the Crystal Coconut. This was actually the name of one episode, along with a Direct to Video "movie" that was just a collection of random episodes ("Legend of the Crystal Coconut" being the first one).
    • In his review of "The Choices", he states that the episode was from the sixth season of the show. It was actually from the fifth, and season six hadn't aired at that time.
    • In the first half of his "Top 11 Worst Animation Clichés" list, he lists Back to the Future among films Steven Spielberg has directed. Robert Zemeckis was the actual director for the film, and Spielberg was just the executive producer. Additionally, he lists Clayton from Tarzan and Smiler from The Emoji Movie as examples of twist villains. Both of them are clearly presented as the villain early on in the film, they just have a hidden agenda. He also erroneously refers to John Silver from Treasure Planet in the same section as "Jack Silver", even though Silver is one of the most well-known fictional pirates of all time.
    • In his review of The Emoji Movie, he calls Just Dance a "DDR Clone". Outside of them both being dancing games, they have nothing in common.
    • In his review of Robotboy, he attributes the show's animation software to Adobe Flash. The show was actually animated in Toon Boom (this is actually a common mistake he tends to make when referring to animation done digitally).
    • In his reviews of "Fairly Odd Pet" and "Certifiable Super Sitter", he says that Foop/Anti-Poof was introduced in season 8, despite the fact that Foop first appeared in season 7. In the former, he also claimed that Poof was introduced in season 7, despite being introduced in season 6 when the show was revived.
    • In his review of Cans Without Labels, he points out how one of George Liquor's lines is clearly spliced from two different takes, and argues that, given how long the cartoon took to produce, there should have been plenty of time to do another take. Enter was apparently unaware that George Liquor's voice actor, Michael Pataki, died very early on in production.
    • In his review of Drawn Together: The Movie, he says that Toot giving birth to Bamm-Bamm Rubble after her affair with Barney doesn't make sense because "he's Betty's child". In the actual series, Bamm-Bamm was adopted by the Rubbles. In the same review, while talking about censorship, he shows a clip from the censored version of the Rick and Morty episode "The Wedding Squanchers" and claims that the censored word in the clip is "ballsacks". The censored word is actually "boners". He also misspells "testicle" as "testical".
    • In his review for Ren Seeks Help, Mr. Enter states that Mr. Horse shouldn't know Ren's name since they haven't interacted before. While Ren & Stimpy doesn't exactly have much continuity in the first place, there were several episodes in the original series that showed that Ren and Mr. Horse knew each other personally (for instance, "Insomniac Ren" showed that they're golf buddies).
    • In his Worst Cartoons of the 2000's video, he says that Drawn Together cannot subvert the source material if the material is already subversive, with the source material he's referring to being the Shrek and Fiona transformation/kiss scene from Shrek 2. Shrek 2, along with the Shrek franchise as a whole, is not a straight parody.
    • In the review of the Donkey Kong Country cartoon, he mentioned that the robot version of Donkey Kong appeared as a trophy in Super Smash Bros.. This isn't true, and the footage he showed in the video was of a modded version of the game. Nintendo has never acknowledged anything from the cartoon that hadn't made its way into the games, such as the Crystal Coconut and Cranky's Mad Scientist tendencies among others.
    • During his The Legend of Korra review, he mentioned that Fire Lord Ozai cannot lightning bend. He can lightning bend, he just can't redirect lightning.
    • In his review of Cans without Labels, he cites Cuphead as an example of Retraux done right. While this doesn't detract from his point, the footage he showed was from DA Games' Filk Song "Brothers in Arms", not the actual game.
    • In his review of Welcome to the Wayne, he states says the show ended on a cliffhanger, even though it had a second season (to be fair, not even fans of the show knew it had a second season).
    • In his Captain N: The Game Master rant in The Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 80, he goes on a states that Mega Man should always be a Heroic Mime because all of his voiced appearances have been bad, before showing a clip of Mega Man 11. Mega Man was established as a talking protagonist as early as Mega Man 3.
    • In his vlog about Where the Dead Go to Die, he claims the movie, which features extremely adult content, is a comedy attempting to make light of these elements. As the creator of the film has happily attested, this is only true of the first segment. The latter two segments (which contain the bulk of the dark content) are meant to be taken seriously (granted, starting with the comedic segment really didn't help with Enter's misinterpretation of the tone).
  • Creator Breakdown:
    • In his "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 1990s" video, he stated that his Despair Event Horizon reaction in his Mega Babies review was genuine, and it actually caused him to consider quitting reviewing altogether, and it was why he reviewed Ren Seeks Help immediately afterward - just so he could get it out of the way.
    • This video in a nutshell.
    • "We need to talk" is a more depressing case, as Mr. Enter discusses what he was feeling in September of 2017.
    • This video discusses problems he had in late 2017 and early 2018.
  • Creator's Favorite Episode: He considers either the Wayside re-review or the somewhat controversial review of The Legend of Korra his best one. Before then, it was the Top 20 Worst Opening Theme Songs.
  • Defictionalization: "The Nutshack theme but every nutshack is replaced by Mr. Enter's review of The Nutshack", a joke from his review of "Duck Karma", was actually made by someone.
  • Development Hell: Several planned "Animated Atrocity"/"Admirable Animation" reviews got put on hold for various reasons, but most eventually do come to be.
    • His "Seahorse Seashell Party" review was originally going to be his fourth Animated Atrocity review, but it was replaced with "Johnny's Royal Flush" and pushed back to the fifth review only to be replaced by "Everyone Knows It's Bendy". "Seahorse Seashell Party" finally got released as the 14th animated atrocity.
    • He was teasing "Top Ten Worst Squidward Torture Porns" at least a month before he finally finished and released the video.
    • The SpongeBob episode "Little Yellow Book" was supposed to be Animated Atrocity #41 in order to follow-up his "Top 10 Worst Squidward Torture Porns" video, but it was replaced at the last minute by "Pet Sitter Pat". It was further delayed by "Princess Promenade", Nickelodeon Month, and Cars 2 before finally being released three months later as Atrocity #49.
    • Similarly, "the Tale of X9" was initially going to be Admirable Animation #21, but was replaced by "A Kind Momodo, Kolulu" and delayed. So far, it's unknown when it will be released.
      • He was teasing another Admirable Animation: "The Land Before Swine" for about two months before he finished and uploaded it.
    • He had originally planned to do Meet the Robinsons as Admirable Animation #24, but put it on hold because he didn't feel up to doing such a heavy project at the time, and instead focused on various short animations from around the internet. Meet the Robinsons would finally be reviewed over a year and a half later as Admirable #45.
    • He teased "Are You Happy Now?" in his atrocity review of "One Coarse Meal", which was his 13th atrocity. Over 1 year later it became Atrocity #68. This mainly had to do with him not wanting to review the episode due to considering it suffering from the House Fancy Effect, a term he coined to refer to an otherwise decent work that is ruined by one bad or infamous momentnote . In the case of "Are You Happy Now?", he believes the episode is actually solid, but there are a couple of suicide jokes which make the entire thing uncomfortable to watch.
    • In his "The Pom-Pom Girl" review, he stated that he was going to review an episode of The Day My Butt Went Psycho! next, but he went on to review "The Return of Slade" due to that episode being a ratings trap, and later he reviewed an episode of "Rocket Monkeys". He eventually scrapped it, saying that he wasn't able to find anything he hadn't already said before.
    • His planned re-reviews of some of his older targets got put on hold by several months due to him waiting for his issues with Viacom to blow over.
    • Part 2 of Top 10 Advertising Campaigns was canceled due to low viewership. According to him in one livestream, "More people have asked me about Part 2 than people who watched Part 1."
    • He had announced plans of reviewing Quest for Camelot since his "Top 11 Things I'll Never Review" video, which was released in January 2015. He finally released his review of it in mid-2020.
  • He Also Did: In addition to his videos, Mr. Enter has tried his hand at several ideas, including Epic! The Humorous RPG, a silly Webcomic, a Fighting Game roster, a Trading Card Game, an online novel called Little Cassie, a Friendship is Magic fan episode, a couple of cartoon series called Growing Around and Alone Together that he someday hopes to make as actual shows, an Action Parody screenplay, and a Fantasy World Building project, just to name a few. He explained in a few now-deleted DeviantArt posts, one aspect of his Asperger's Syndrome is struggles with Fleeting Passionate Hobbies; one moment he is incredibly driven towards a certain subject, and then later his drive completely peters out, the thing he was so passionate about becomes tedious and boring, and these projects go unfinished. In his own words, he feels like Professor Calamitous. So far, the only projects he's managing to follow through with are his videos (due to the potential overlap with wherever his interests lie) and Growing Around, the latter he's actually registered a copyright for.
    • Little Cassie is an interesting case; he finished the first draft and was in the process of proofreading, and intended to at least self-publish. The problem is that he wrote it at first to cope with the trauma of his past, and as a result going back to redraft it would entail reopening a lot of old wounds he wants to move on from.
    • Growing Around morphed into a novel. He did not give up despite facing desperation and uncertainty at every step, and wrote a 65k word manuscript out of his ideas. He takes pride in this being one of the very few projects he followed through on. It was even officially released on Kindle and paperback.
  • In Memoriam: The Animation "Genre" begins with a tribute to Stephen Hillenburg.
  • Magnum Opus Dissonance: Enter initially felt Troll was the best video he's released. Many fans of his disagree, with a handful outright disliking it, largely due to Enter's controversial opinion that trolls and cyberbullies are one and the same, and arguing that they're not is part of the problem.
  • Missing Episode: His review of "A Dog and Pony Show" was taken down by Shout! Factory, and unlike "Look Before You Sleep", hasn't been re-reviewed.
    • His reviews of various episodes of The Simpsons, King of the Hill and Family Guy have been taken down as well. Unlike "A Dog and Pony Show", Mr. Enter has confirmed that he has the reviews saved on his computer.
    • His "Top 11 Worst Episodes" video was only available on Vimeo since it contained footage from Fox shows until Fox nuked that account, making the video unavailable as of now.
    • Back when he was finishing up reviewing Season Three of MLP, he made a few response videos to Byter, a critic of Season Three, using a courtroom setting similar to Ace Attorney. These videos were flagged for harassment a few months later and Enter refused to fight it or reupload them due to his personal dislike of the content. Additionally, there was a (now-deleted) video titled "Mr E Vlogs: Battle Scars Of A Flame War" that was mentioned in his video on Byter's review of "Too Many Pinkie Pies".
    • While the current version of the "Top 11 Mistakes" video on his Dailymotion is 17 minutes long, there was an earlier version that was initially 23 minutes long which tried to go into more detail about his feud with Byter. This original version of the video is nowhere to be found.
    • In July 2020, he deleted his DeviantArt account, which means that all of his journals, Animated Atrocities note cards, drawings, and Growing Around content are inaccessible without using an internet archive (and that's only if they're on an archive).
    • Sometime in 2020, he removed part 1 of his "Top Ten Advertising Campaigns" video (along with canceling part 2) due to low viewership of part 1 and high demand for a part two.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: When he was making his "Top 10 Worst Patrick's a Prick Episodes" list, he asked for viewers to vote for the transition song. The options were "Particle-Man", "Where is the Fun?", "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch", "Worthless", and "The Plagues". The winner was "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch".
    • He also asked for help with his Top 20 Animated Theme Songs list, causing it to end with the top 4 being from shows he hadn't even seen.
  • Old Shame:
    • His Top 11 Screw-Ups list is full of these.
      • He was dissatisfied with many of his older MLP reviews, most notably "Bridle Gossip", because he felt like he didn't take the time to properly elaborate what he was trying to say.
      • His old feud with Byter over the status of MLP's quality.
      • He has expressed regret for attacking Charlotte Fullerton and Merriweather Williams in his "Putting Your Hoof Down" review, as he learned after making the video that Fullerton was forced to stop working on the script and hand it off to Williams after the death of her husband. He doesn't like the episode any more than he did, but he felt that he went too far in personally calling out the writers, especially given the circumstances that led to the episode's creation.
    • Mr. Enter tends to be disappointed by reviews that clock in less than five minutes. His least favorite Animated Atrocity review is "It's A Wishful Life" because he was rushing to get something out and should have torn into the episode more. His least favorite Admirable Animation is the "Helga on the Couch" review for similar reasons.
    • As stated in several modern post-rebrand reviews, such as "Fame and Misfortune," he openly regrets his former over-the-top tone and most of his controversial decisions, such as his 12 Oz Mouse review. Some of his older reviews were redone because of his shame, such as "Pet Sitter Pat" where he attacked the writers and inadvertently brought harassment onto their Twitter pages.
    • In his review of "Going Bananas", he expresses his shame at his previous Rocket Monkeys review, noting that it was more of a rant against people who request him to review certain works than a true review, and that the episode came during a stretch of reviews that he now hates due to him feeling burnt out at the time of making them.
    • He dislikes his review of Seth Mac Farlanes Cavalcade Of Cartoon Comedy, feeling he was too harsh on it.
  • Out of Order:
    • During Nick-O-Rama, the review for Mr. Meaty (which premiered in 2006) went up a day before the review for The X's (which premiered in 2005), since the former was ready to be uploaded when the latter wasn't.
    • Because of the lengthy production of Animated Atrocity #141: "The Legend of Korra Book 1", it was released after Animated Atrocity #142: "Cartoon Network in 2017".
  • Schedule Slip: Despite shifting his schedule to one video a week and removing MLP episodes from rotation, his work in 2015 was full of issues that caused this, including YouTube deleting his account, sickness, an air force practicing over his house and a long saga with his computer slowly falling apart before he could finally get a new one.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: He has had several fights with big-name companies over copyright infringement. Most notably, Viacom, FOX, Hasbro, and Shout! Factory.
    • He was affected by the infamous copyright claim fiasco of December 2013, when YouTube's changes to their content ID system caused many videos across the site to be hit with claims, including videos that follow Fair Use. Luckily, Mr. Enter managed to successfully counterclaim since his videos are made for the purpose of review/critique, and thus fall under Fair Use.
    • In August of 2014, his Vimeo account was terminated for copyright infringement, taking all of his FOX reviews and everything else along with it. Mr. Enter was so irritated by this that he plastered three of the banned FOX reviews on YouTube just to piss them off. Of course, FOX blocked the videos and slapped him with two copyright strikes about 48 hours later, which prompted him to file an official DMCA counterclaim, essentially daring Fox to sue him.note  About a week later, Fox backed down and restored his videos.
    • In April of 2019, in his "Very important conversation" livestream, he revealed that his whole channel was demonetized by YouTube. Thankfully, this was reversed by 2020.
  • Throw It In!: Mr. Enter has a tendency to leave in alternate takes of himself saying some lines, resulting in a few unintentional Department of Redundancy Department moments.
  • Troubled Production: Cars 2 was by far the most difficult video for him to produce due to numerous technical problems that plagued the DVD ripping, editing, and processing of the video.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • He was originally going to do his "Twilight's Kingdom" review partially or completely as a response/rant video towards members of the MLP Analysis Community who have developed a reputation for Accentuate the Negative.
    • In his "1 Night In Gottlieb" review, it was stated that the next Animated Atrocity would be a double feature of "Television Dominance" and "Avoiding Work". He decided instead to just do "Trilogy".
    • In late-2013 he was originally planning on doing a top 10 list of the "Worst Cartoon Episodes of 2005", but the video never materialized due to Mr. Enter admitting it was too large of a stretch and instead decided to do the 1-year anniversary lists.
    • In his "Top Ten Best MLP Episodes", he stated that he would do a "Top Ten Favorite MLP Songs" video after season four was over. Since season four has been over for almost a decade, the video's almost certainly canned.
    • In his "Top 25 Post-Movie SpongeBob Episodes" Admirable Animation, he mentioned that he'd be doing a reverse of what he did in 2013, doing various Halloween Atrocities for October, and a bunch of Christmas Admirable Animations in December. Fast-forward to Halloween and he hadn't reviewed a single Halloween-related Atrocity, instead opting to do "The Top 25 Most Disturbing Episodes" list (although one of the episodes he did initially just for that video was reviewed as a whole later on). As for the Christmas Admirable Animations, he chose only to review It's A SpongeBob Christmas.
    • In one of his now-deleted DeviantArt Journals, he revealed that he tried to make a video titled "How To Do YouTube" before realizing how depressing it sounded, as well as making him look like (in his words) a "bitter conspiracy nut".
    • This often happens when deciding between episodes of a cartoon series for Animated Atrocities:
      • For Ed, Edd n Eddy, he was originally going to review "If It Smells Like An Ed", but found "Sorry, Wrong Ed" to be worse.
      • For Breadwinners, he was originally going to review "Stank Breath", but found "Love Loaf" to be worse.
    • He planned on reviewing The Day My Butt Went Psycho!, but he found that, Audience-Alienating Premise aside, there was nothing really bad or good to critique.
    • Every single series or movie in "Top 11 Reviews I'll Never Do" counts as this, with the exception of "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" (which he later reviewed as Atrocity #164).
    • He planned to look at Sausage Party, but after learning of the many allegations about the film's Troubled Production, he announced that he's refusing to give the film any publicity, good or bad. He's refused to see the film at all. However, the fact that he brings the movie up in a positive light in his review of The Emoji Movie means that he's seen it and is either invoking Death of the Author to enjoy the film or is simply pulling an Enemy Mine with the film.
    • In his face reveal vlog, he revealed that he unsuccessfully applied to join Channel Awesome. Considering the controversy that would end up surrounding the channel, he ultimately called this a good thing.
    • At the end of his "Things Change" review, he announced that he was going to be reviewing Puella Magi Madoka Magica as a Patreon-sponsored review. He later announced in his Your Name review that he had refunded the request.
  • Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things:
    • In late January 2020, Enter deleted his Twitter account due to heavy backlash and criticism towards his Nick-O-Rama series, in addition to excessive hostility towards him in general.
    • Around 2016, Enter deleted his Tumblr for then-unknown reasons. Later, in 2019, he revealed in his "dealing with my cyberstalker" video that this was solely due to a cyberstalker who had harassed him so much that he decided that the platform was more trouble than it was worth.
