    Vinny streams with their own pages 

  • Accidentally Accurate: Vinny occasionally passes off corruptions as something only someone as stupid and/or silly as him would do, but "corruptions" are actually used in software testing - they just happen to fall under the more professional term "fault injection".
  • Approval of God:

    • Vinny acknowledged Vappy and Southbird's work before they became Promoted Fanboys. During a stream of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D in late 2014, Vinny acknowledged that Vappy was uploading his streams to YouTube and said he didn't care that he was doing that, with the same year seeing the registration of The Full Sauce channel, an official stream archive that Vappy helps maintain. The following year Vinny discovered after streaming Super Mario Bros. 3Mix that Southbird had uploaded highlight videos of his streams and Vinny approved of it and made Southbird an official video editor for his streams a few months later.
    • The videos in Vinny's Full Sauce channel's playlists tend to come from Vappy's other channels if they aren't hosted on The Full Sauce itself, but the channel also has a link to a full playlist of Vinny's Pokémon X streams from YouTuber Irishredawg, who is not officially connected to Vinesauce.

  • Banned Episode: The "Android Trash 8" segment of the May 19, 2019 stream was manually deleted by Vinny from Twitch shortly after it ended, on account of a brief moment in it where Vinny was tricked into opening two Tron Bonne-themed apps containing pornographic imagery. This also extends to material related to the event; clips from the deleted portions of the VOD and most Tron Bonne art referencing the incident were purged by moderators as well, with the posters of said clips being timed out for two minutes and the posters of said art being outright banned from the Vinebooru. The segment was uploaded to Fullsauce with the offending imagery replaced with Vinebooru art referencing the incident that had been permitted to remain up, though everything else covered is gone.
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!:
    • The Crenando running gag is, more often than not, attributed to Vinny misreading Ganondorf's name. While it was Vinny who introduced the joke, it was an old friend of his who misread it, years before the stream even began (specifically, when some of Vinny's friends were playing Super Smash Bros. Melee on a small TV, which made text hard to read), and Vinny wasn't even present when it happened and heard about it from another friend. Vinny himself has clarified this not to be the case multiple times, though many people still believe it was an on-stream occurrence; TV Tropes even assumed it was his mistake and documented it accordingly for a while.
      Vinny himself mistakenly attributes the misreading to Gamby, an old friend of his and frequent butt of jokes for Vinny and his friends, during a stream of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and corrects himself during a The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD stream, saying that who said it is unknown to him. During a stream of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, another installment in Ganondorf's home series, Vinny comments that he himself has had to be corrected by Mike when it comes to certain details of the original incident.

    • Joel's "Who's been drawing dicks?" quote is often associated with Mario Paint, despite the fact that it was introduced to Vinesauce in his Windows XP Destruction stream. The quote is referencing something one of Joel's teachers said when he was a kid rather than anything from Vinesauce, and the original drawings (which were done by a classmate of Joel's, not Joel himself), as well as Joel's replica in the Windows XP Destruction stream, were drawn using the Paint program that came with Windows. SiIvaGunner is probably to blame here, given how one of their most popular "high quality rips" ever is a Stupid Statement Dance Mix combining the joke and Mario Paint music.
    • Despite it being a moment from a Joel stream, Vinny has sometimes been miscredited with the "GRAND DAD" meme.
  • Big Name Fan:
    • PeanutButterGamer is a fan of Vinny's. He has made videos on his main channel showing what can be done with the Vinesauce Corruptor and made a video on his Let's Play channel showcasing some of Vinny's Super Mario Maker levels.
    • ProtonJon knows that Grand Dad is a Joel meme, which only an interested fan would know, and has complimented their work in his own streams a few times.
    • Joel has noted on a few occasions that PewDiePie is subscribed to his YouTube channel. The fact they're both hammy Swedes who play weird games probably helps.
    • The owner of the Twitch Plays Pokémon Twitch account is one of Vinny's viewers and their presence has been acknowledged by Vinny himself multiple times.
    • Joel is a fan of SimpleFlips, a Super Mario 64 hack player/speedrunner, and has even donated to Simple's streams on occasion. Both of them have an affinity for Surreal Humor, in addition to Joel playing a Super Mario 64 hack with liberal mentions of giving shout outs to SimpleFlips.
    • One of the artists of the Invader Zim webcomic, Matthew Seely, managed to sneak in not one, but two Vinesauce references into issue 36 of the comic. Vinny was delighted to see this when he came across the first reference during one of his Art Corner segments (specifically this Vinebooru upload).
    • Joe Sparks, the creator of Total Distortion, liked Joel's playthrough of the game so much that he not only left a comment on the first episode appreciating his commentary and playthrough, he also noted that he used a snippet of his livestream in a then-recent video he made (presumably this one). Joel mentions this in a Shareware Madness stream, where he goes on and on about how humbled he was by that event and retroactively "feels so bad" about criticizing the game.
    • Vinny was one of the YouTubers represented in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night via cheat code. This is notable considering Vinny has expressed disdain for partaking in paid promotions in the past and, as Vinny himself explained in his own playthrough of Bloodstained, he wasn't even one of the Kickstarter backers. Lastly, the cheat code that unlocks the Vine Sword references Sponge, a character that relatively recent Vinesauce viewers probably won't know about, since he's only appeared in two long-concluded playthroughs. Given the circumstances, Vinny's cameo in the game goes a step above returning the favor to influencers.
    • Ross O'Donovan has made appearances in Vinny's chat, and Vinny has played some of his Super Mario Maker 2 levels. He even accepted a request to play one of Ross' newer levels, already knowing of their nature.
  • Colbert Bump:
    • After Vinny first streamed Super Mario Bros. 3Mix, he discovered that it was coincidentally made by a Vinesauce regular (Vinny had previously heard about it from Mike Matei's review of it, rather than from anyone on Vinesauce) and Southbird became significantly more well known on Vinesauce.
    • Joel has looked up Twitch streamers with few viewers for the purpose of giving them significantly more viewers, solely as a random act of kindness.
    • Joel's over-the-top reaction to Super Mario 7, AKA 7 Grand Dad, brought attention to The Flintstones: The Rescue Of Dino & Hoppy, the licensed Flintstones game that Super Mario 7 is a bootleg version of. Before then the game wasn't particularly well known among NES licensed games.
    • DuLuDuBi Star, the infamous Mario Galaxy knockoff, gained a lot more notoriety after Vinny streamed live. And has inspired a user to research the mascot/main character of the game revealing that said character is a theme park mascot for Fantawild, a large animation and theme park company notable in China.
    • Joel's trip to the "ice chewing forum" as seen during his Windows 10 Destruction video apparently got so much attention from morbidly curious visitors that the site was accidentally DDoSed. The forum's owner only had this to say after it happened:
    "Some kids think they are hackers. Not the first, not the last."
  • Creator Backlash:
    • Joel is sick and tired of BonziBUDDY. This is shown in his stream of "destroying" a Windows 7 installation, and showed sheer irritation that BonziBUDDY still worked, despite the fact that it looked like it didn't. The same also applies to Grand Dad.
    • The original reposter of the "Fuck Bees" video absolutely hates the fact that the song's inclusion in Vinny's Super Mario Galaxy Repainted stream led to countless Vinesauce fans commenting on the original video. This reached the point where the creator now trolls "Fuck Bees" viewers by posting slanderous comments about Vinny (despite the fact that he had nothing to do with its inclusion in the hack in question) and spoiling The Force Awakens in the video's description.
    • Vinny himself hates the "bees" meme as well. According to him, the only time he ever found it funny was in the context of the original Super Mario Galaxy Repainted stream. However, this seems to have lessened as 2016 went by, as he has referenced it himself when his character in Animal Crossing: New Leaf gets chased by bees after he started streaming that game again after its Welcome amiibo update was released in late 2016.
    • Vinny is sick of and baffled by the existence of the "HE THICC" meme, wondering how a joke name from an online player for Mario Kart 8 could achieve such memetic status and a bundle of fan games. He even requested to his fans in one stream to stop making HE THICC games because of it.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • Thanks to Vinny's story of a friend misreading Ganondorf's name whilst playing Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ganondorf is exclusively known as "Crenando" by the Vinesauce fanbase.
    • Vinny has a slew of these in the form of mangling his own name, each more ridiculous than the last. The most common ones are "Binny" and "Binyot."
    • Joel similarly has a bunch of nicknames taken from bastardizations of his first name, such as "Jobel" (often expanded to "Uncle Jobel"), "Jontles", "Joblets", "Jorgel", and, in light of his full name being "Joel" "Johannson", "JoJo".
    • The name of Vinny's "RP Guy" character often has "RP" written as "Arrgh Pee" by fans due to the guttural pronunciation Vinny uses for the letter R when using that voice.
    • The new manager of the Fullsauce channel is often referred to as "John Fullsauce" by fans, due to their actual name not being mentioned.
  • Meaningful Release Date:
    • Vinesauce itself was founded a day before Vinny's 25th birthday. Vinny himself commented on how it wasn't on the exact same day when he streamed on the site's fifth anniversary (the day before his 30th birthday).
    • Fred streamed Super Mario Bros. 3 on March 10, 2015, AKA Mario Day. Vinny also streamed Super Mario Bros. 3Mix (a hack of that game) on the same day, though that stream was part of a then-ongoing series of streams and not a standalone stream.
  • Missing Episode
    • Due to Livestream's wipe of old archives, and Twitch's August 2014 implementation of non-permanent video-on-demand archives, scores of earlier Vinesauce streams, including those by early streamers who are no longer part of Vinesauce, are largely lost or unpublished. YouTube archives of full streams generally started to appear in 2014 (around the same time as the aforementioned discontinuation of permanent video-on-demand archives) and Southbird made a forum post regarding the nearly complete lack of archives from before 2013, such as how the very first stream (Vinny's first Chrono Trigger stream) is completely gone. That said, the Vinesauce page on Livestream does still have a few old videos (from former Vinesauce streamers StudyGuy and Tame), and as of 2016, the only active streamers who don't keep archives of their current streams are Jen, Darren, and Hootey (they do have YouTube channels, but they generally aren't used for archives of full streams). The autopilot was revamped after scores of videos were removed by Livestream, so that is a lost relic as well.
      Vinny has stated that he's saved several archives of his old streams, several of which are older than either what's been uploaded to Vappy's personal channels or what's been uploaded as VineClassics on The Full Sauce, but he's reluctant to upload them partially because he doesn't think there's enough interest and partially because he isn't fond of the quality of some of the older streams.
    • Footage is missing from some of Vappy's uploads of Vinny's Super Mario 3D World streams because the recordings were lost.
    • On Joel's full stream channel, his uploads for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask originally began with the second stream. This would later be corrected. However, there is one stream of Majora's Mask that took place before the first part, from what is said by Joel, the stream was cut off by a blue screen right after he got back from some errand. Unlike the part 2 before part 1 upload mishap, this "Part 0" stream was never uploaded.
    • Joel and GPM's Vinewrestle 2016 streams were intentionally kept off YouTube to avoid copyright strikes. They were uploaded to Joel's Dailymotion channel instead.
    • YouTube uploads can be lost due to copyright strikes. Southbird temporarily set his highlight videos for Vinny's Super Mario Bros. 3Mix streams to private to avoid this and also moved his 3Mix development videos (along with his other non-Vinesauce videos) to a separate channel, though the highlight videos were made public again after the post-Super Mario Maker takedowns of ROM hack videos had slowed down.
    • During one of Joel's Pokemon ROM hacks streams, he played an infamous hack named Pokemon Cock. Despite it being alongside other hacks, when the stream was finished, the Pokemon Cock version was removed from BOTH the Twitch and YouTube VODs. It's unknown why it got removed, and that portion hasn't been seen since.
  • Name's the Same
    • Vinny's friend Mike (Jabroni Mike) and man he was interviewed by, Mike.
    • In Vinny's playthrough of Thief Simulator, he gets thrown for a loop when the player character's point of contact is also named Vinny, complete with the "NOO YAWKER" accent that gets parodied ever so often on-stream.
  • Old Shame: Vinny isn't exactly fond of his old RPG Maker games, calling them "cringe" (something he notes he rarely does) and barely gets halfway through the first game, Chrono Continuum, before getting too embarrassed to read the dialogue his 16-year-old self wrote.
  • Parody Assistance: Joel recorded dialogue for the fan video "Hotel SiIvaGunner".
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • All of the streamers except for Vinny started out as viewers.
    • Vappyvap88, who had previously been uploading full streams to his personal YouTube channel, now helps manage an official channel for posting Vinny's full streams.
    • Captain Southbird, who had uploaded highlights of certain streams (primarily Vinny's Tomodachi Life streams) and was eventually discovered by Vinny after the latter streamed Super Mario Bros. 3Mix (Southbird made both the hack in question and highlight videos of Vinny's streams of it), is also considered an official Vinesauce partner as well. Most of his newer edits would later go on Vinny's own channel, while the edited versions of Vinny's Tomodachi Life streams remained on his own, though his channel does feature videos featuring more miscellaneous content than the videos on Vinny's channel (which tend to be more similar to the videos Vinny himself makes), such as stories and anecdotes shared by Vinny during various streams. Southbird later started editing Vinny's Animal Crossing: New Leaf streams (primarily streams of the Welcome amiibo update) and they ended up going on Southbird's own channel instead of Vinny's.
    • GPM was made a Vinesauce streamer in 2016. He had collaborated with Vinesauce in the past (such as with Vinny's Super Mario Galaxy Repainted stream from around the end of the previous year) and had experience streaming beforehand.
  • Rule 34 – Creator Reactions: At the end of this stream Joel discovers a thread on 4chan's yaoi board with pornographic drawings of himself and Vinny. He found it hilarious and took it completely in stride.
  • Trolling Creator: Vinny has mentioned that he sometimes likes to say completely random things to get the attention of people who have his streams playing in the background, such as people who have a stream playing in one tab while a different tab is open. For example, he might jokingly say that something lewd is happening onscreen during completely normal gameplay.
  • What Could Have Been: The first time EarthBound asked for Vinny's name, he entered "Binyot" instead. When the same screen came up later in the game, he changed it to his real name due to viewer requests from the previous time. Had he not changed it, the scene featuring Paula directly reaching out to the player during the final battle would have had less of an impact than usual, which is why viewers asked Vinny to change the in-game name.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Vinepedia which was made to replace the old wiki.
