The Adventures of 10ACraft is a YouTube series made by TheSuperArtistGamer, made in Mine-imator and styled in a sort of comic-like format (although the series is made in an animating engine, the episodes themselves consist of still images that portray the action, similar to that of a web-comic). The series is centred around a group of classmates as they try to live their lives in the world of the popular video game Minecraft. It currently has 2 seasons, including specials and even a Scratch game dedicated to the series.

According to a video uploaded on TheSuperArtistGamer's gaming channel on August 2020, the series itself has officially ended with the wrapping up of Season 2; although it was stated that he has plans to make an animated reboot of the series, he is currently taking a break from large scale projects due to personal issues; thus marking the end of the franchise for the time being.

The Adventures of 10ACraft provides examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: Many episodes have this, such as "Football Finals!" and "Modded Madness!".
  • Alternate Universe: Played with. While it may appear obvious at first (what with the gang being in Minecraft and everything), there are clues given in prologues and backstories to suggest that the real world and the Minecraft world are somehow linked in 10ACraft canon. This is further backed up by characters outright stating that they miss home at certain points during episodes, such as Ben in Season 1, Episode 17.
    • As of 10A Shorts: Episode 3 and Episode 4, this has been confirmed - Ryan and Haleema (and later, Rory) entered the Minecraft world by being sucked into a school computer.
  • Author Avatar: TheSuperArtistGamer himself appears in a few episodes.
    • Ross could also count to an extent.
  • Big Bad: Herobrine, fittingly enough.
  • Bottle Episode: The Season Finale of Season 1 is mostly just snipits from previous episodes. Fitting, given that the entire plot revolves around 10A simply relaxing and discussing their favourite moments over the season. The Season 1 Q'n'A also qualifies - the gang just reside in a small building to answer questions from fans.
    • The Season Finalé of Season 2 is an interesting case of this. Although a big chunk of the episode is snipits from various Season 2 episodes, the episode itself has several new scenes (including an entire scene from Season 1, Episode 1 completely remade).
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: TheSuperArtistGamer himself appears in Season 1 Episode 18! And pretty much the whole plot of Season 1 Episode 20 was based on this concept, technically.
    TheSuperArtistGamer: See you in the comment section!
  • Butt-Monkey:
      Advertisement:
    • Poor Kyle C seems to go through some struggle anytime Sharkey's around, to the point where sometimes he gets abused or outright killed by Sharkey's antics.
    • Elgin is a bit of a Butt-Monkey in the sense that he is very clumsy.
    • Alex W epitomises this trope in the Q'n'A episodes, since he always gets asked ridiculous or even embarassing questions.
  • The Cameo: Moreso in recent episodes.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Sharkey; his main flaw is that he's a bit of a pervert.
  • Comic Trio: Matthew, Ben and Kyle H. The role that applies to them is always subject to change.
    • Matthew is generally The Leader as he often spearheads the wacky schemes the trio go on, but he also plays The Fool quite often due to his risk-taking tendancies often backfiring on him.
    • Ben can be any of these: his responibility usually makes him the Only Sane Man, but when the three of them are doing something worthwhile, he can occasionally become The Leader.
    • Kyle's indifference means he is also an Only Sane Man most of the time, although in rare cases he can do some pretty stupid things.
  • Deadly Game: Downplayed. The minigames featured in certain episodes primarily promote the class to kill each other to gain an advantage, although the "die-and-respawn" system makes it seem a lot less morbid than it sounds.
  • Death Is a Slap on the Wrist: Naturally, with the series being set in Minecraft and all. Anytime a character dies, they are usually brought back within seconds and they just continue on with their lives as if nothing happened.
    • Averted in certain episodes, which are implied to take place in real life (see the Timeline page). Also Season 2, Episode 24, where, thanks to Herobrine's meddling, a third of 10A get killed and are subsequently deleted from the game.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Katie. She has a HUGE affection for Elgin, but sadly her affections are never returned. Sometimes Elgin even goes as far as humiliating her in some way (like beating her up in Season 1, Episode 7).
  • Dogged Nice Guy: A running gag in the "Modded Madness!" episodes os that Ross is awkward around girls whom he tries to get to know, which implies him to be this.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Episodes 1, 2 and 3 can be seen as this, seeing as they look so out of place compared to the modern episodes.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After their struggles against the Ender Dragon resulted in them getting Killed Off for Real, Ross, Matthew, Scott, Kyle M, Alex D, Beth O'N, Laura, Katherine, Erin and Jasmine get to move on to a peaceful afterlife.
  • Everybody Is Single: None of the characters are confirmed to be in any relationships (Herobrine DID have a wife at one point though), and interactions that suggest otherwise are surprisingly note few and far between.
  • Five-Man Band: Alex D, the Beths, Laura and Rebecca are a Five Woman Band.
    • The Leader - Alex, as she is generally the head of the group and the most socially outgoing of the five.
    • The Lancer - Laura, the group's Deadpan Snarker and oftentimes the most sane of the bunch.
    • The Smart Guy - Beth O'N, although her intelligence is more of an Informed Attribute as of now.
    • The Big Guy - Beth O'L, while she may not look the part, is the toughest one in the group and by far the most experienced when it comes to combat.
    • The Chick - Rebecca, who is much softer and meeker than the others and possibly the most rational.
  • Four-Man Band: Conall, Elgin, Ross and Sharkey.
    • Only Sane Man - Ross, who doesn't get up to much in terms of screwing around as the others, effectively serving as the group's voice of reason.
    • The Smart Guy - Conall, who appears to be the wisest and most reserved, but also has Deadpan Snarker tendancies and can be cynical at times.
    • Casanova Wannabe - Sharkey; his main character flaw is that he is a massive Pervert, in BOTH senses of the word.
    • Butt-Monkey - Elgin, who is known for being pretty clumsy at times in an otherwise professional-looking group of friends (his Butt-Monkey status is very mild compared to Kyle C's, however).
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Amber, Erin, Katherine and Katie.
    • The Phlegmatic - Katie. Out of the four, she's the most peaceful and relaxed.
    • The Sanguine - Amber. She's the most social one in the group and is pretty optimistic.
    • The Choleric - Erin. She's brash and outgoing, but has a rather tough and fiery nature.
    • The Melancholic - Katherine. Out of the four, she appears to be the most reserved and doesn't appear to be as social as the others.
  • Genki Girl: Emily, big time.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": A common problem caused by the CPU-generated voices. A recurring problem is for the voices referring to Nisha as "Nih-sha" as opposed to "KNEE-sha". TheSuperArtistGamer was going to fix this early in the series, but after constantly forgetting and seeing it as a Running Gag, he left it in.
  • Kid Hero: 10A can be seen as these, seeing as they're all school children and are always finding ways to thwart evil and survive.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Rebecca has one in Season 2 Episode 6 after she drew parallels to Benderman's Punny Name.
    Rebecca: Plus the pun.
    Ben: Exactly! The pun was lit!
    Rebecca: She says sarcastically.
  • Leitmotif: The 10ACraft Jingle (it lacks an official title), the song that plays at the end of nearly each episode, seems to be quite iconic to the series. It even gets remixed in "The Adventures of 10ACraft: Fighter Edition"!
  • Limited Wardrobe: As per most cartoons/web comics, the characters all appear to wear the same outfits in all of their appearances.
  • Mood Whiplash: 10A Shorts Episode 1 is a rather lighthearted, extremely funny insight on Mr. Coyle's detention classes. 10A Shorts Episode 2 is a shocking, saddening clip of some of the class going to their school, only to find it burning down. Bonus points for the fact that THIS IS BASED ON A REAL EVENT THAT HAPPENED LESS THAN A MONTH PRIOR TO THE EPISODE.
  • Motor Mouth: Most of the character voices in comparison to the few slower ones. A notable example is the contrast between Peter and Rebecca.
  • Nice Guy: The main male cast mostly consists of this, and a few characters, like Peter and Kyle M, tend to play this trope straight.
  • Nice Girl: Again, the female roster consists of alot of these, such as Alex D, Beth O'N, Jasmine and Katie. Even more do than the boy end, since the female characters tend to be SIGNIFICANTLY more passive than the males (proven in minigames).
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between:
    • Emily, Nisha and Molly. Emily's jolly, empathic and emotional traits nail her as the nice, Nisha's smug and deadpan remarks nail her as being the mean, and Molly's kind but serious atmosphere land her as the in-between one.
    • Ben, Matthew and Kyle H. Ben is responsible and, out of the three, the most caring, therefore being the nice, Matthew has jerkass tendancies and is generally a bit of a troll, making him the mean, and Kyle's aloof nature and indifference make him the in-between.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Mr. Coyle is a classroom assistant, but he goes by the alias "The Teacher".
  • Nuke 'em: This is certain characters' immediate solutions to problems. Elgin and Sharkey are the two key suspects.
  • One Steve Limit: Alot of characters tend to avert this trope...
    • Alex D and Alex W.
    • Beth O'L and Beth O'N.
    • Kyle C, Kyle H and Kyle M.
    • Played straight with Matthew and Sharkey. Although both of their names are Matthew, Matthew S is simply referred to in-series as Sharkey since his surname is a common nickname, therefore, in this case, it can work.
  • Parody: Of Minecraft, obviously. Fighter Edition appears to drop the Minecraft elements, though.
  • Product Placement: One minor instance in Season 1, Episode 17. The episide in question has a scene where Elgin, Conall, Scott, Kyle H and Alex W have a tournament for Super Smash Bros 4 Wii U. It never actually appeared, however.
  • Punny Name: Some Episodes tend to have these, with "Yet A Nether Adventure!" and "Mine-io Kart" being two particular offenders.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: In July of 2018, the Junior School of Foyle College was burned to the ground. Guess what the second 10A Shorts episode was based on?
  • Running Gag: The series has quite a few.
    • Conall's Catchphrase appears to be the most iconic. He basically shouts "Shots Fired!" everytime an argument takes place.
    • Elgin and Katie's one sided relationship is also a fairly classic one, and in general the duo interact in hilarious ways.
    • Peter's knowledge of real world logic often gets turned AGAINST him, due to the many terrain anomalies and glitches that Minecraft has to offer.
    • Matthew's Porkchop obsession has become one of these.
    • Megan's cowardice is an example of a Running Gag linked to a character's persona, mainly involving Megan to flat out refuse to do certain things.
    • As of Season 2, Sharkey's insistence of referring to Blaze Powder as Fairy Dust.
    • Haleema isn't very good with remembering names, and since she joined the gang she has yet to get Kyle C's name right (even calling him "Murray" at one point).
  • Satellite Character: Many characters at the start of the series suffered from being "Bland" or "One-Dimentional". As the series progressed, however, it became clear that Character Development was starting to kick in.
  • Shout-Out: Again, the series has its fair share of these, particularly in the season finale of Season 1.
    • The Season 1 Hallowe'en Specials give one to "Five Nights at Freddy's", a popular internet indie game.
      • Season 2, Episodes 7 and 9 are ones to F Na F 2.
    • Season 1, Episodes 21 - 24 give ones to the popular TV series "Total Wipeout".
    • Season 2, Episode 6 gives a Shout-Out to multiple mods, including the Lucky Block Mod, the More TN Ts Mod, the Mob Talker/Human Mobs Mod, the Mutant Creatures Mod, the More Creepers Mod and (possibly) the Herobrine Mod.
    • Season 2, Episode 14 gives on to Mario Kart.
  • Sliding Scale of Visuals Versus Dialogue: Tips the scale in favor of the Dialogue. The episodes in general are mostly made up of constant chat between the characters.
  • Teens Are Short: Some. In particular, Conall, Jasmine, Molly and Sharkey all qualify.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: All of the main characters have died at least once in the series. Because they're in Minecraft however, they simply come back as if nothing happened.
  • Trapped in TV Land: Or, you know, Minecraft Land. Either way, this trope pretty much sums up 10A's backstory thus far.
  • Troll: The Matthews are sometimes seen as this to the other characters.
  • Verbal Tic: Many characters have this, from the overabundance of the words "mate" and "ladd" to Ross, Elgin and Emily using the term "bro" anytime they refer to their friends.
  • The World Is Just Awesome: Ross and Sharkey certainly thought so of the Minecraft Universe in Season 1 Episode 1.
    Ross: Isn't it glorious?
    Elgin: What is?
    Ross: The Minecraft World. And the fact that we're in it.
    Sharkey: Ahh, Minecraft... the world of many opportunities.

Below are tropes associated with the Episodes themselves. The folders are categorized by season, and the folders themselves contain a bundle of episodes in order.

    open/close all folders 

Season 1 Episodes

    Episodes 1 - 6 

Tropes associated with Episodes 1 - 6note .

Episode 1 - A New Adventure!

  • Early Installment Weirdness: Much like the following two episodes, this episode looks a hell of a lot different than the rest of the series in terms of art style.
  • It Amused Me: The supposed reason for Sharkey killing Kyle C at the end of the episode.
  • Kick the Dog: Even as far back as Episode 1, Kyle C was constantly getting harassed at the hands of Sharkey.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Conall kills Katie by accident while mining. Notoriously, this is the first death in the whole seriesnote .
  • Shout-Out: Elgin yells "Falcon Punch!" when he prepares to punch a tree to get wood.note 
  • Trapped in TV Land: Pretty much the driving force behind the plot of the episode. The gang simply have to survive Minecraft as they appear to be trapped in the game.

Episode 2 - A New Adventure! (Part 2)

  • Early Installment Weirdness: Much like the following two episodes, this episode looks a hell of a lot different than the rest of the series in terms of art style.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: One of the Beths single-handedly leaves their group to their demise as they fall into a desert temple, setting off TNT that proceeds to kill everyone.
  • Trapped in TV Land: Pretty much the driving force behind the plot of the episode. The gang simply have to survive Minecraft as they appear to be trapped in the game.

Episode 3 - The Zombie Apocalypse!

  • The Ace: At the end of the game, it was Kyle M who managed to come out on top.
  • The Cameo: Dylan appeared at the end of the episode to grief the school. Although due to the series' Art Shift it doesn't really look like Dylan, it was confirmed to be him by Amber in Episode 12.
  • Deadly Game: The episode revolves around The Teacher making a minigame challenge where the school is overrun by a zombie apocalypse (no surprise there).
  • Death Is a Slap on the Wrist: With the exception of Kyle M, everyone dies at least once.
  • Driven to Suicide: Erin over the lack of Wi Fi of all things.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Much like the following two episodes, this episode looks a hell of a lot different than the rest of the series in terms of art style.
  • Idiot Ball: A couple of examples.
    • The apocalypse has begun, and zombies are spawning left and right. Everyone makes a mad dash, as for Ross? He hides underneath a table. Needless to say, he didn't survive long.
    • In a different vain, Peter outright WALKS PAST A ZOMBIE and converses with it AS IF HE DIDN'T REALISE IT WASN'T A HUMAN. And by the time he realises his mistake, it was already too late. Doubles as an Out-of-Character Moment.
  • Killed Midsentence: Elgin.

Episode 4 - The Big Change!

  • Art Shift: Thus episode established a huge overall graphics change, and given the time gap between the release of Episodes 3 and 4, it was easily for the better.
    • For those that don't quite get it, rather than photos of a hand-drawn image with cheesy voice acting, it now consists of screenshots of an animating program which emulates the graphics of Minecraft itself; the voice acting was also changed to a text-to-speech program to match this technological change.
  • Body Horror: Kyle C,s leg was trapped inside a block in one particular shot; it was most likely an oversight.
  • Development Hell: This episode was implied to have gone through this, as there was a near 6 month gap between this episode and the previous one. The reason for this is stated in the video's comment section.
    TheSuperArtistGamer: You see, I kinda lost inspiration due to the drawings looking so quality, so I wanted to change it into an actual Minecraft format. I needed alot of software to do that, though, which explains the near 6 month wait.
  • Easter Egg: Herobrine appears in the background while Alex D, Rebecca, the Beths and Laura are walking through the island's forest. Doubles as Foreshadowing.
  • Vocal Evolution: See Art Shift.

Episode 5 - The Big Change! (Part 2)

  • Artistic Licence – Biology: Invoked. A shot in the mine featured an underground rose on a patch of dirt. Naturally, Peter questions this.
  • Big "WHAT?!": When Emily, Jasmine and Molly find gold, this is one of Jasmine's reactions.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: This line:
    Peter:Then let's go then.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Alex D accidentally kills Rebecca while she retreats into the basement. Presumably, she thought it was a zombie or other monster and acted on impulse.
    • A minor (pardon the pun) averted example. Still, if Molly continued mining the gold with the stone pickaxenote , this trope could have taken effect, especially since Ross and Sharkey were right round the corner.

Episode 6 - The Big Change! (Part 3)

  • Artistic Licence - Geography: Invoked. Katherine points out that snow shouldn't exist in summer, and while she may be right, Katie simply tells her to ignore the logic of the game, effectively reminding her that they're Trapped in TV Land.
    • Later Kyle C prompts Peter to question this exact thing, only for Peter to flat out refuse and accept defeat.
    • And in the last scene, one of the girls questions this aswell, only to state that they're not even gonna bother. It's almost as if this one feature was the episode's Running Gag.
  • Big "NO!": Alex W lets one out after Ben throws him off a cliff just for insulting his romantic skills.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Elgin's reaction to Katie jump-tackling him out of excitement? BEATING HER THE FUCK UP.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Ben to Katherine. This hasn't been brought up since, however.
  • Foreshadowing: Herobrine frequently appears in this episode in certain shots. And sure enough, Guess who makes a main appearance in the next episode?
  • Informed Ability: Before this episode, Ross's jumping capabilities hadn't been brought up. In this episode, while Emily mentions it, they still remain unseen.
  • Jerkass: This was the episode that kickstarted Elgin's Jerkass tendancies towards Katie. It started with Katie texting him to come over to an island they found. Elgin's reply? "Screw you XD".
    • Later, as Katie tackles Elgin to the ground, punching sounds can be heard, while Elgin's left arm is obscured. Yes, it is implied that Elgin is PHYSICALLY BEATING HER. Granted, it could be self-defence, but it's still a case of Disproportionate Retribution.

    Episodes 7 - 13 

Tropes associated with Episodes 7 - 13note .

Episode 7 - The Unlucky Night!

  • Ascended Extra: Herobrine; this is the episode where he officially begins his Big Bad status.
  • Big Bad: Again, Herobrine.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Alex W tries to warn his group about the burning of their house, but since "they know when [he's] up to something", they won't take him onnote . Seconds later, Herobrine turns up, proving that Alex was really right all along.
  • Naïve Animal Lover: Katie sees a chicken and goes over to it, presumably to make friends with it. Unbeknown to her, it was possessed by Herobrine, causing her to die.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Averted. Megan, Jasmine and Molly were going to pull this when Nisha, Anna and Emily were getting attacked by skeletons and spiders, but Herobrine appeared behind them, blocking their path and preventing them from doing so.

Episode 8 - The Mine-a-thon! (Part 1)

  • All Men Are Perverts: Emily called a zombie one as it attempted to kill her.
  • Blatant Lies: Right after Elgin kills Katie, the other people in their group confront him, asking him where Katie was and why he had a sword. Elgin stated that he was killing monsters that had ambushed him, but they killed Katie before Elgin had a chance to save her. Humourously, the others buy this.
  • The Bus Came Back: Mr. Coyle finally makes a return to the series after an 8 month absence.
  • Call-Back: The scene where Matthew jumps down a ravine in an attempt to get minerals and ores is a reference to the exact same scene in Season 1, Episode 1, with the only difference being that he survives this time.
  • Evil Is Petty: Downplayed with Alex W. While he isn't necessarily evil (in this timeline, at least), he plans to go out of his way to antagonise Scott and his group, all because Scott revealled a good location for finding ores.
  • Your Mom: When Sharkey attempts to spook everyone in the house with a Herobrine mask, Laura facepalms, and tells him that he's just not funny. Sharkey's response? "Your mum isn't funny either!" Hilarity ensues.

Episode 9 - The Mine-a-thon! (Part 2)

  • Face Palm: Beth O'N has one of these when Matthew attempts to talk to Kyle C, only to find that he's disappeared.
  • Pint Sized Power House: Scott basically admits to being one.
    Scott:I'm strong for my size!

Episode 10 - Bow Tag! (Round 1)

  • Artistic Liscence Biology: Peter once again questions Minecraft's terrain. In this case, there are blocks of snow floating around the arena.
  • Ascended Glitch: The supposed reason for the case above.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Megan can NOT use a bow to save her life. And if we're taking missed shots into account, Sharkey isn't much better.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Played with by Peter and Laura; Peter shoots Beth O'L to try and stop her from shooting Erin, but he couldn't kill her in time. Laura mockingly tells Peter that his lack of speed lets him down. Peter attempts to accuse Laura of hypocrisy by telling her that she isn't one to talk; the trope ultimately gets averted when Laura kills Peter with a shot that basically proved her point about Peter being slow.

Episode 11 - Bow Tag! (Round 2)

  • Defeat Means Friendship: Invoked. Scott and Alex W decide to team up and go together through the arena... despite their feud two episodes ago.
  • Face Palm: Enily and Megan standing around doing nothing (and eventually getting killed) prompts Nisha to have one.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Nisha claims she's the only one (between her, Megan and Emily) actually doing anything worthwhile in the team, but Scott proves the contrary. Cue Conall's Running Gag.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Elgin literally sits there and allows Sharkey to kill him. He obviously forgot the teams.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Sharkey's a lot more skilled here than he was in the previous round.
  • Troll: Matthew steals Alex W's kill about a third of the way into the round.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: A variation. Conall attempts to shoot Beth O'N, but Ross dives in front of her, taking the bullet. Conall, raging that he could have got them both, curses Ross and his heroism.

Episode 12 - The Search for Mineshafts! (Part 1)

  • Flipping the Bird: A skeleton does this to Scott, Kyle M, Alex D, Laura, Rebecca and the Beths after they tease about the skeleton not being able to kill themnote .
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Elgin crafts a piece of TNT to blow up a beach to find a cave... and promptly dies from it. Even funnier is that the other three somehow survive that AND the impact of landing in a cave!
  • Stealth Pun: Elgin's Insane Troll Logic of "5 + 4 = Yolo"note .
  • Terrible Artist: To say that Alex D gets confused over Ben's... erm... "map" is a vast understatement.

Episode 13 - The Search for Mineshafts! (Part 2)

  • Badass Adorable: Rover, at least until he gets shot.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Dylan and Reece; they save Amber, Erin, Katherine, Katie and Molly from a group of monsters.
  • Butt-Monkey: Alex W more or less gets forced to go into a section with a cave spider spawner in it; he gets attacked almost instantly.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: In the scene where Anna and her group are fighting off monsters, if one looks closely enough at the background in one of Anna's shots, they can see a vague, shadowy character.
  • Hypocrite: Matthew, Ben and Kyle H poke fun at Alex W and call him a Dirty Coward for not wanting to go into a section of the mineshaft with a group of spiders, despite they themselves calling dibs on not going in first.
  • Left Hanging: The episode was originally going to have a part 3, but it was scrapped for unknown reasonsnote . This leaves quite a few questions unanswered:
    • What would Alex W have done to get revenge on the other boys?
    • Would the spawner camp be successful?
    • Who was the mysterious figure and why do we never see him again?
  • The Meta Guy: Erin's awareness of the rarity of emeralds implies her to be a female version of this.
    Erin:They're one of the rarest things in the game!

    Episodes 14 - 19 

Tropes associated with Episodes 14 - 19note .

Episode 14 - Five Nights at Freddy's!

  • A Day in the Limelight: Dylan and Reece (and to a lesser extent, Ewan and Lindsay) star in this episode big time. Both duos go up against the class as they play their horror hide-and-seek game.
  • Demoted to Extra: Alex W's role in the episode is religated to a 30 second shot at the end. This actually fits in with the plot; this suggests that here is when he joined the class.
  • Easter Egg: Just like the games, the episode has a few of these on the newspaper articles at the end of the episode. These include:
    • News about another mansion being closed down the year prior, known as the 9A mansion. This could possilby be Foreshadowing.
    • The fact that TheSuperArtistGamer himself recently hit 20 subscribers.
    • The fact that a "spooky clown person" jumpscares people on Hallowe'en.note .
  • The Ghost: Mr. Coyle is mentioned in the episode (Laura hears the laptop in the office and suggests he's trying to contact the class), but it's simply behind-the-scenes and he never appears.
  • Handicapped Badass: A non-literal example with the protagonists (Ewan, Lindsay, Dylan and Reece); they all manage to put up a good fight despite only being able to control doors and cameras. Special mention goes to Dylan and Reece, who survive the whole ordeal!
  • Nightmare Fuel: Given the game it's based on, this episode is bound to fall here in certain aspects.
  • The Rock Star: The episode establishes that the class have a band. Yes, you read that right.note 
  • Shout-Out: To Five Nights at Freddy's, not that that's a secret or anything.
    • A few characters also act like certain animatronics, such as Kyle C (Foxy) and Megan (The Puppet).

Episode 15 - Five Nights at Freddy's Part 2!

  • A Day in the Limelight: Alex W; this episode goes over how he joined the class.
  • Easter Egg: Just like the previous part, the newspaper is full of them. See Foreshadowing.
  • Foreshadowing: Many of the aformentioned Easter Eggs fall into this category.
    • "A New Football Stadium is currently in the works!" The next episode is, in fact, football themed.
    • "Next year, a whole bunch of PC Mods are going to get released!" While probably true on it's own, the "Modded Madness!" episodes were made about a year after this one, being some of the first Season 2 episodes.
  • Large Ham: Again, [[Alex W]] with his quips and insults, to the point where it (almost) as a Nightmare Retardant.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In a different vein from the previous part, mind you. Here, rather than focusing on the chills of 10A trying to get into your office over a horror hide-and-seek game, this episode focuses on the chills of 10A trying to get into your office... full stop. See, as soon as the gang notice who they're up against, shit goes down pretty quickly, and they're a HELL OF A LOT more agressive than they were in the previous 2 rounds.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: It's actually pretty jarring to see such a laid-back class become so agressive, especially the silly and childlike Sharkey and Emily, and the otherwise-passive and friendly Alex D and Ross. This is a huge contributer to the episode's Nightmare Fuel.

Episode 16 - Football!

  • Deadpan Snarker: Katie delivers a pretty nasty burn to Scott during the final play of the second game.
    Katie:Instead of telling us to observe your skills, I think you should observe the top left corner more often!
  • Facepalm: Scott has the verbal equivilant when his team messes up the start of the final play, allowing Ross to get the ball.
    Scott:This can't be happening!
  • Tempting Fate: Scott concedes a goal immediately after trying to prove how a good goalie should always be alert.
    • It also happens to Alex W in the same game. Acting smug as if Elgin can't score from his own half, Elgin does just that and wins the game for his team.

Episode 17 - Christmas Chaos!

  • Call-Back: Kyle C suspected that the Hoaxed Miner was seeking his revenge, calling back to Episode 8 qhen Mr. Coyle revealed the Hoaxed_Miner.RAR File.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Nisha informs Molly that a log got stuck in the chimney, meaning the fire has gone out. Molly panics about Santa not having a way in.
  • Fangirl: Laura and Rebecca, over One Direction. Matthew even lampshades it.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Sharkey did manage to kill Kyle again... albeit not in the way he intendednote . Sharkey barely did anything, really.
  • Hidden Depths: Kyle H claims in this episode that he loves origami.
  • Lazy Bum: Molly and Nisha send Sharkey to unclog the chimney because... it's never really explained.
  • Narm Charm: My god, the christmas carol scene. Cringeworthy? Perhaps. Hilarious? Absolutely.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: At the beginning of the episode, we see Emily, Megan and Nisha coming home from what was apparently "the greatest snowball fight ever".
    • Later, we see Alex W, Scott, Kyle H, Conall and Elgin, alongside the aftermath of a game of Super Smash Bros 4 Wii U. Justified in this case; supposedly the video could have got taken down otherwise.
  • Rage Quit: Alex W after a game of Smash 4 didn't go so well.
  • Spanner in the Works: Jasmine. When Kyle and Sharkey are trying to dispose of the log in the chimney, Jasmine starts up the fire again, burning up the log and allowing Kyle to fall to his death.

Episode 18 - Christmas Chaos, Part 2!

  • Badass Baritone: Averted with Ross, who has quite the falsetto voice on him.
  • The Cameo: Jack appears as the minister of the church service.
    • Also, Mr. Coyle appears at the end to take a nice christmas photo.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Alex W starts laughing his head off during the church service. Matthew promptly shuts him up... by punching him to death.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Ivan appears in the church service alongside the villagers. He wouldn't make his actual debut for another 8 episodes.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Done by The Narrator, of all characters.
    Narrator:Two in-game hours later... hey, I'm the narrator and I'll break the fourth wall if I want to!
  • Schedule Slip: The episode was likely intended to be released round about Christmas time like Part 1, but ended up being almost a month after.

Episode 19 - Football Finals!

  • Deadpan Snarker: In a similar vein to Katie in the previous part, Beth O'L calls a pretty savage shot when Ben concedes a goal.
    Beth O'L:Gee, Ben, your your saves really are inevitable, aren't they?
    • Later on, Emily delivers a fairly nasty comeback to Alex W when they watch the finals:
      Alex W:See, if my skills were on point, we would have won this whole tournament.
      Emily:Aww gee, it's a shame your skills didn't work when we needed them, isn't it?
    • Finally, we have Beth O'N, who scores a penalty kick after Scott told her multiple times that she would fail.
      Beth O'N:I guess I defined failure.
  • Kick the Dog: Nisha goes apeshit at Timmy when he lets in a goal.
  • Pun: Kyle H says one during the finals. Peter was impressed.
    Kyle H:(after killing Elgin) Elgin, you're not on the ball today, are you?
  • Sore Loser: Scott and Elgin both come off as this at the end of the finals.
  • Tempting Fate: Just like the previous part, a goalkeeper (Ben, in this case) brags about how inevitable their save is, only to screw up and concede.
    • Once again, this is followed up by a deadpan remark, see Deadpan Snarker above.
  • The Heart: Kyle M gives his team an encouraging talk during the final game. Evidently, it succeeded.

    Episodes 20 - 25 

Tropes associated with Episodes 20 - 25note .

Episode 20 - Quirky Q'n'A!

  • A Day in the Limelight: Naturally for a Q and A video, the first section is one for TheSuperArtistGamer himself. After that, though, it's a usual 10ACraft episode where the "plot" is determined by the viewers.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: TheSuperArtistGamer reacts in this sort of way when someone called him The Super Autistic Gamer, presumably as a joke.
  • Facepalm TheSuperArtistGamer does one whenever he was asked "Do you possibly think you're a homosexual guy?"
  • Fantastic Racism: Nisha displays this after she was asked "Why are you a jerk to Timmy?" On top of that, she also states that Timmy can't save a goal to save his life, suggesting that she's a Sore Loser from the previous episode.
  • Ho Yay: One question revealled that someone ships Ben and Kyle, not specifying which Kyle they meant.
  • It Amused Me: Sharkey confirms this as the reason why he constantly kills Kyle C after a viewer asked him why he just randomly goes around killing people.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Despite the fact that it's A Day in the Limelight for TheSuperArtistGamer, his section of the Q'n'A is done and dusted about 4 minutes in. 10A have the rest of the episode to themselves.
  • Tear Jerker: Played for laughs with Ross, who was asked if he was gay, then went into detail about how he's forever alone.
  • Troll: Mr. Coyle, of all characters. He kicks Alex W from the server after a fan asked if Alex could leave the game.

Episode 21 - Total Wipeout Minecraft Edition!

  • The Ace: Kyle H. He cleared every obstacle first try, and once he got in the lead, he broke away with nobody able to catch him.
  • Alliterative Name: Some of the Teacher's names for the obstacles - specifically The Doom-Bars of Dizzyness, The Trippy Trampoline, The Wizard Wall.
  • Failed a Spot Check: The game starts. Elgin rushes out of the starting area, gaining an early lead... and completely misses the first jump. He falls flat on his face below.
  • Jerkass: The characters appear to be much more competitive than usual, going out of their way to hinder each other's progress.
  • Large Ham: As the commentator, Mr. Coyle has his moments of this.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: At one point, Scott allows Conall to overtake him, shortly before sticking his foot out and tripping him up. As Conall falls, he grabs Scott and pulls him down with him, allowing Ross to gain the lead.
  • Non Standard Game Over: One of the death messages reads that "[Elgin] was squashed into a pancake by [Anna]", which isn't actually a way to die in Minecraft.

Episode 22 - Total Wipeout Minecraft Edition, Round 2!

  • Comically Missing the Point: Ben claimed that the game was easy, while Molly and Emily (and to an extent, Matthew) retorted the contrary. Molly's claim was that others were drowning. Emily's was that she was forced to do excercises.
  • Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: Scott jumps on top of the sweeper to avoid getting knocked off, though it's not so much cheating as it is abusing the system. Plus, he falls off not too long after anyway.
  • Non Standard Game Over: Again, though this one was more of an oversight in the minigame and is a death that can happen in Minecraft. Peter gets crushed between the sweeper and a platform, and dies as a result.

Episode 23 - Total Wipeout Minecraft Edition, Round 3!

  • Alliterative Name: Like with Part 1, some of the obstacles have this, with the main example being the "Turn Table of Terror".
  • Ascended Extra: Dylan and Reece make major appearances in this episode as Mr. Coyle's guest commentators.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Averted.
    Dylan:So with most of our contestants near the bottom, the conpetition is surely heating up fast!
    Reece:It really is, although it will only cool down again with the water.
    Dylan:Ooh, Reece, loving the puns!
    • Despite this, he apologises anyway.
  • Non Standard Game Over: Ross suffers from this. He falls into the lava pit right at the end of the course, and since Dylan and Reece never accounted for non-drowning deaths, he ended up respawning back at the beginning of the course, essentially taking him out of the game.
  • Tempting Fate: "Ahh, lava parkour. Shouldn't be too difficult." The next thing that happens, Ross slips and falls in.

Episode 24 - Total Wipeout Minecraft Edition, Round 4!

  • Accidental Innuendo: "Ouch! Sharkey don't grab me there!" note  The fact that it cuts to black doesn't help.
  • Alliterative Name: The arena is called the "Gladiator's Grounds" by Mr. Coyle.
  • Anticlimax Boss: More like Anti-Climax Battle. Sharkey and Alex W duked it out at the end, but neither of then came close to winning the whole tournament.
  • Bash Brothers: A lot of alliances form during the game - Alex D and Alex W, Amber and Nisha, Elgin and Matthew, Emily and Ross, Kyle C and Peter and Scott and Sharkey.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: After Ben rejects Alex W's alliance proposal, the latter knocks him off. He even calls him a backstabber.
  • Graceful Loser: Kyle M commends Elgin for his strength before getting finished off.
    • Alex W ultimately becomes this, as he's the first to congratulate Sharkey on the latter's victory the following morning.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Conall's own cockiness gets the better of him, as he pummels Matthew he determins he can do it with his eyes closed. Moments later, the platform rises, causing him to just be kneeing nothing. When he finally realises this, he gets knocked off by Beth O'N.
    • This exact scenario happens to Nisha as well. After Amber advises her to turn around to check for ongoing attacks, Nisha declines cockily, claiming that if anyone attacks her, she'll just rip into them. Cue Beth O'N (again) taking advantage and wiping both of them out.
    • Scott suffers from a more literal example. He sets a trap for Elgin near the end of the battle and pushes him over Sharkey, who's kneeling over behind him. However, Beth O'N (...again...) creeps up and knocks him over Sharkey, causing him to fall as well.
  • Ho Yay: Peter and Kyle C form an alliance. Matthew has some fun with this, saying "Sup gays?" upon arrival.
    • It happens again with Ben and Alex W. The latter states that he has a proposal to make, but the former tells him to reword it on the basis that it sounds romantic, and that he's not gay.
  • Insane Troll Logic: The game's twist runs on this. The twist of the game is that, while the contestants are battling it out, the ground will split into sections, based on colours. Peter asks how that would happen without electrics and whatnot; Mr. Coyle simply replies with "Magic Bullshit".
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Alex W utterly cleans Ross at one point. Emily cries that it's just a game and that he's taking things way too far. Alex retorts that it's a fighting game, and therefore, all the blows are allowed.
  • Kurb Stomp Battle: The final showdown between Sharkey and Alex W. It starts off in Alex's favour, but ultimately Sharkey brings it back and finishes him off.
  • Non Standard Game Over: Jasmine and Lindsay (while commentating) get squashed by the dead bodies of Megan and Laura, respectively.
  • Stealth Expert: Scott and Sharkey crept up and knocked Katherine, Molly and Erin to their deaths when they weren't looking.
  • "Stop Having Fun" Guys: Alex W goes after Ross after forming an alliance with Emily.
  • Tempting Fate: Early on, Jasmine claims that she just wants to be the last man standing. She then dies after Megan falls on top of her.
  • Troll: For once, Matthew is on the receiving end of this. Conall grabs him at the beginning of the game and keeps kneeing him repeatedly. Conall had no intent on killing him but Matthew was seemingly unable to escape.
  • What an Idiot!: Kyle C is clinging to the ledge of the arena, losing his grip, with Matthew looming over him in triumph. Peter, in an attempt to avenge his alliance partner, kicks Matthew off of the platform to eliminate him. What he didn't account for, however, was that the momentum from his kick would send him flying off the platform as well... which is EXACTLY what happens. Elgin sums it up best:
    Elgin:What idiots.

Episode 25 - A Trip down Memory Lane!

  • Berserk Button: Laura rips into Peter after he corrects a grammatical error she made.
  • Bottle Episode: The episode mostly consists of stills and shots from previous episodes. Justified, given that the class are looking back over their adventures.
  • Call-Back: Naturally, this episode is full of them.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Alex W tries to roast Ross by saying he'll have to pay to get his vocal chords fixed (for reference, Ross said Alex will pay for uploading a video of him online). The class reacts with an awkward silence before Nisha changes the subject.
    • Averted in Elgin's case. When reminiscing about Herobrine's attack from Season 1, Episode 7, "[they] also met Jack, who didn't do jack shit!"

Season 2 Episodes

    Episodes 1 - 5 

Tropes associated with Episodes 1 - 5note .

Episode 1 - The Preparation!

  • Call-Back: Peter references Season 1, Episode 4 at the beginning of the episode. Specifically, the time when the world got updated.
  • Comical Over Reacting: See Crazy-Prepared.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Scott's over-reaction upon realising how many torches Amber brought mining with her gives off this impression.
  • Dirty Coward / Lazy Bum: Megan (as the former) and Erin and Katie (as the latter) didn't want to go back to the mines after dying, choosing to stay in the house instead.
  • Foreshadowing: The book the class read at the beginning of the episode ended up revealing a lot about future episodes, such as the beast roaming the Minecraft world (referencing the Ender Dragin, presumably).
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: When Ross reads the book, the camera zooms out to reveal Herobrine standing on the roof of the house, watching...
  • Insane Troll Logic: As an Englishman, it's Sharkey's duty to destroy all books, apparently.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Amber brought torches on her group's mining expedition... torches which she stole from their house.
  • Mr. Exposition: Ben, with Benderman's assistance, becomes this in regards to the dimensions in Minecraft.
  • Took A Level In Smartness: Sharkey. When the group opted to go mining, Sharkey suggested digging in different directions to increase their chances of finding resources. Lampshaded by Elgin.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Played for laughs in the beginning. The class stumble upon a mysterious book. Katie brings up her dissatisfaction, claiming that she hates books, and Sharkey has a full-blown freakout!

Episode 2 - Yet A Nether Adventure, Part 1!

  • Leeroy Jenkins: Matthew nominates himself to be the test subject for entering the nether. He then dives in, head first. Bonus points for the actual sound effect playing as he does so!
  • Pun: Scene 2 ends with one.
    Alex W:I'm so excited now! I wanna go [to the nether]!
    Megan:I don't. I'm too nervous! What if there really is fire?
    Peter:Then I guess you could say he's... just getting WARMED UP?
  • Shrinking Violet: Megan's nervousness about the new dimension forces her to stay behind while the others jump thtough the portal.
  • The World Is Just Awesome: Matthew's reaction upon entering the Nether. Everyone else shares his sentiment once they follow suit.

Episode 3 - Yet A Nether Adventure, Part 2!

  • Bash Brothers: Alex W and Sharkey. Doubles as a Tag Team.
  • Berserk Button: Mentioning Donald Trump is supposedly one to Erin.
  • Brick Joke: Ben explains to his group that the gang need to get a powdery substance. Peter asks if it's cocaine. Later in the episode, Megan comes through the portal after a house invasion takes place. Peter tells her about the substance, and she asks the same thing.
    • Later this escalates to mistaking the powder for other things in general, as in the end of the episode, Sharkey asks if it's fairydust.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Conall does this with his "Sex Kick of Sexiness".
  • Combat Pragmatist: Sharkey spots a Skeleton, tricking it into shooting a Blaze that was giving Alex W some trouble.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Conall has a few moments of this.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Conall and Erin have a falling out when hiding in the nether fortress. Afterwards, Erin gets set on fire by a Blaze. Conall then quips that his sick burns are finally kicking in, getting this reaction from Erin.
  • Escort Mission: Ben entrusts Ross with leading the girls to safety upon entering the Nether while he and Benderman enter the fortress.
  • Facepalm: Laura has the verbal equivilent when she enters the Nether.
    Laura:You're trying to survive in this intensity against unknown monsters? By yourself!?
    Ross:Not at all - Peter's here too!
    Peter:Hi guys!
    Laura:Somebody, please kill me.
  • The Leader: Ben gives out the roles in his group, likely due to being backed by Benderman.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Like the last episode, Matthew takes a lot of risks. This time, Elgin joins him.
  • Logical Weakness: Anna was fighting a Blaze, but kept getting hurt because she was using her fistsnote .
  • Only Sane Man: Amber. She explains to Katie what the gang have to do, and quickly wears tired of Sharkey's antics.
  • Shipper on Deck: Ross refers to Peter and Megan as "Secret Lovebirds".
  • Those Two Guys: Matthew and Elgin, ditching their group by jumping off a bridge to explore the nether fortress.

Episode 4 - Yet A Nether Adventure, Part 3!

  • Calling Your Attacks: Ross and Elgin both do this while fighting Blazes. Ross leaps up and does a "Power Pounce" from above. Elgin prefers the classic Falcon Punch.
  • Damsel in Distress: The previous part ended with Emily getting knocked iff a bridge by a Ghast. In this episode, Alex W carries her to the overworld to safety.
  • Extreme Doormat: Nisha gets Katie to leave her powder in the chest. Katie acts confused, but goes with it anyway.
  • Magic Maguffin: The Eyes of Ender, which makes sense when you think about the End Dimension.
  • Mr. Exposition: Benderman explains to Ben how Eyes of Ender work, which Ben passes on to Nisha and Jasmine.
  • Pun: Katie said one when she, Kyle M and Sharkey made Blaze Powder. The trio were indeed on fire.
  • Shipper on Deck: Ross again. This time he asks Emily if Alex is her new boyfriend. Emily hastily dismisses his claim.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Megan doesn't appear until after the gang re-enter in the overworld, and it's not known if she died, fled back after the previous part, or endured the challenge with the others.

Episode 5 - Cops and Robbers!

  • Accidental Innuendo: At one point, Ross and Emily are sitting in the school gardens, waiting out the Cops. Ross then reveals he got his hands on a gold block... in the most questionable way.
    Ross:Welp, guess I gotta whip this out now.
  • Ass Pull: How on earth can Sharkey fit an entire gold block in his pocket?! Then again, it is Minecraft...
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: The Robber have one more gold block to collect, but all of the Cops are surrounding it. Elgin has the brilliant idea of sending a sacrifice, and his group all agree... three guesses as to who ends up being the sacrifice.
  • Call-Back: In the form of a Running Gag, as soon as Mr. Coyle reveals that they are, in fact, at school, Elgin, Conall and Scott flee to try and escape, much like how they did in The Zombie Apocalypse back in Season 1, Episode 3.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Katie kept laughing whenever she, Amber and Alex D had some of the Robbers cornered. Seems like she isn't a very serious Cop.
  • Comic Trio: As Cops, Jasmine, Laura and Megan, with Jasmine giving status reports, Laura actually wanting to win, and Megan just wanting to have fun and knowing it's just a game.
  • Genre Savvy: Nisha is aware that, since they, as Robbers, are trying to hide from the Cops, the forest would be one of the first places the Cops would check, seeing as it would make sense for most of the Robbers to hide there. Of course, since her group consists of Ben, Emily and Kyle H, they go along with it anyway.
  • Literal-Minded: Weaponised by Alex W in the form of a comeback line - and a pretty good one, at that.
    Cop!Kyle M:Well I wouldn't be so overconfident, Scott. You never know what tricks they could have up their sleeve.
    Cop!Scott:True that.
    Robber!Alex W:My arms are up my sleeve.
    Robber!Conall:Shots Fired!
  • Pun: Elgin points out that the Cops are "blocking" the final piece of gold.
  • Self Deprication: When Mr. Coyle explains the rules, and asks if anyone's been living under a rock, Kyle H admits so.
  • Serious Business: Downplayed with Laura, who wanted to win.
  • Skewed Priorities: Alex W doesn't want the Cops to catch him... because he just wants peace to sleep.

    Episodes 6 - 11 

Tropes associated with Episodes 6 - 11note .

Episode 6 - Modded Madness!

  • Alliterative Name: Matthew gives one to his unzombified zombie pigman: Percy the Pigman.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Beth O'L. Doubles as a Curse Cut Short.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Rebecca and Beth O'L both joke about how Matthew could have followed in Ben's footsteps and named his animal companion based on a shitty pun.
  • Mr. Exposition: Mr. Coyle reveals to Erin and Katherine that he is responsable for downloading mods into their Minecraft world, thus setting the plot in motion.
  • Nuke 'em: Alex W's response to monsters. Light them on fire? Better yet - use hand grenades!
  • Running Gag: Everyone seems to mistake the lucky block as the question block from Super Mario. Justified, since they both look nearly identical.
  • Tempting Fate: Emily tells a cold Nisha that there could be worse things going on, such as monsters. Then they get attacked. Oh Emily...
  • With Friends Like These...: Ross has this reaction towards Conall, Elgin and Sharkey, who laugh at his expense during a very awkward situation.

Episode 7 - Five Nights at Freddy's 2!

  • Awesome Ego: Elgin's way of telling that a ghost has his likeness? Pointing out its (by proxy, his own) huge muscles.
  • Ax-Crazy: Charley, big time. He stabs Elgin in the hallway.
    • The other gang count, as well. Pedro throws an axe at Ross, chopping off his arm, while Mervin and Lauren give Sharkey and Emily a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • Big Bad: Charley.
    • The Dragon: The other gang, thanks to Charley's brainwashing potions.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Mervin's first appearance has him ready to chow down on a loaf of bread, establishing him as a Big Eater.
    • Likewise, Charley's introduction halfway through the episode is a scene of him talking to Alex W through a phonecall about how he's plotting revenge on 10A.
  • Face–Heel Turn: The other gang suffer from this, going from friendly and welcoming to psychopathic and murderous. Justified due to Charley's brainwashing potion.
  • The Pollyanna: Rebecca, unlike the others, is quick to look on the positives in regards to their empty bedroom. Kyle M and Ben later share this sentiment.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: This episode only features about half of the main cast, and it introduces a new cast of characters that look similar to the others. Charley seems to know exactly who they are, though...

Episode 8 - Modded Madness, Part 2!

  • Accidental Innuendo: Ari claims that she gets wild at night.
  • Ambiguously Gay: In the campfire scene, Peter and Kyle C are sleeping on each other's shoulders.
  • Big Bad: Herobrine. It was foreshadowed frequently, but it was only officially revealled at the end of the episode.
  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Ross can't catch a break after his awkward meeting the day before.
    • Elgin gets this treatment from Conall and Sharkey towards the end of the episode as well, once Katie texts him with 3 X's at the end of her message.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Nisha delivers a pretty savage quip to Ross as he tries to explain his awkward situation.
    Conall: Basically, Ross was in a forest and he startled some random wee girl!
    Ross: Shut up Conall, it's more complicated than that!
    Nisha: That's what all paedophiles say.
  • Elite Mooks: The Mutant Creepers cerainly could count, as they act as major threats in this episode.
  • Establishing Character Moment: For the above-mentioned Mutant Creepers, poor Katherine gets blown to smithereens after one gets its clutches on her, establishing that they will be the main threats of the episode.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Although the Mutant Creepers are terrorising the land, Herobrine turns out to be the one pulling the strings.
  • Hidden Depths: Scott, Kyle M, Alex D and Beth O'N have a conversation about sports. Turns out Alex and Beth both play hockey, Kyle currently has a badminton title, and Scott wishes to start his own rugby team.
  • Mr. Exposition: Beth O'N and Kyle M, as the resident Smart Guys, do research on diamond. They then share their knowledge.
  • Pervert: It's established in this episode that, in Sharkey's mind, the whole point of a relationship is "to get some".
    • Elgin implies immediately after that that Sharkey may actually be in a relationship... yeah.
  • Shipper on Deck: Alex W eggs Ben on about Rebecca, asking if it was Rebecca who protected Ben from dying while laughing. Ben retorts that she died as well.

Episode 9 - Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Part 2!

  • Affectionate Nickname: Connor refers to Charley as Father Charley.
  • Berserk Button: Charley doesn't like being called Charles, it seems.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Near the end of the episode, Ross goes out at midnight to hunt for Charley. Sharkey gets concerned over this, not over his friends' safety, but because him getting up and leaving has left Emily lying uncomfortably on the ground.
  • Deadly Game: Averted. Unlike the previous FNAF-based episodes, rather than the gang playing a horror hide-and-seek game (which eventually turned into a Deadly Game once they found out who they were up against), the antics this time involve the other gang roaming around the establishment, purely to play a prank on Charley.
    • Played straight with 10A themselves once they start to plan out their revenge during the second half of the episode.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Downplayed with Ross, who is dumb in the sense that he physically cannot talk due to his facial injuries. After Emily and Sharkey confront him in the hallway for leaving on his own, he signals them to follow him, leading them right to Charley proving to them that Charley is, in fact, still lurking...
  • Precision F-Strike: Nisha delivers one to Sharkey after the latter called her a man.
    Emily: (referring to their injuries) It won't hurt if you battle through like a man!
    Megan: But I'm not a man and neither are you!
    Sharkey: Nisha is, though! Ho ho ho!
    Nisha: Shut the fuck up you cunt!
  • Heel–Face Turn: The other gang show hints of this, since throughout the whole episode they act like they haven't done anything wrong. This trope comes into play near the end, as Pedro explains to Lauren that he feels like he's done something horrible, but doesn't know what. It could also hint that the effects of Charley's brainwashing potions are wearing off.
  • Immediate Self-Contradiction: Megan goes from complaining about how she can't feel her arm to complaining about how much pain her arm is in.
  • Innocently Insensitive: After waking up, Erin proceeds to complain about her injured jaw. Emily and Megan kindly point out that there were people (namely Rebecca) that got it worse than she did.
  • The Leader: Kyle M assumes this role for 10A, since he comes up with their plan of action.
  • Literal-Minded: Emily tells Megan that her injuries won't hurt as much if she takes it like a man. Megan retorts that she can't take it like a man if she isn't a man herself.
  • Logical Weakness: A few of the 10A characters gain these upon awakening in their injured states. For example, Ben, whose skull has been cracked, has a faulty memory, and Rebecca, whose jaw has been shredded, becomes The Voiceless.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: As the second half of the episode reveals, 10A themselves have been on the receiving end of one, courtesy of the other gang (who may or may not have been brainwashed by Charley).
  • Oh, Crap!: Lauren mutters one when Charley hints that they could be playing a prank on him. Since she's in his vicinity as this happens, she ends up blowing her cover.
  • Only Sane Man: Elgin, of all people, tries to keep 10A calm and under control.
  • Strange Secret Entrance: Charley uses one of these to hide in while the others are pranking him. It seems to be the main entrance covered by a piece of movable wall.

Episode 10 - Modded Madness (Finale)!

  • Berserk Button: As the first confrontation with Herobrine shows, do NOT fuck with Ross' friends.
    • Also, calling Elgin fat will end badly, as Nisha learned the hard way.
  • Big Bad: Herobrine has officially usurped this position from the Mutant Creepers in this episode as he reveals some of his past.
  • But Now I Must Go: Ari takes her leave at the end of the episode, although she assures Ross that the two of them will meet again. It is unknown if this is of relation to Mr. Coyle's mod purge, however.
  • Call-Back: The name "Hoaxed_Miner.RAR" to refer to Herobrine (from Season 1, Episode 8) crops up multiple times when the class discuss him. Scott and Conall also call back to their time in the plains village ("Malaysia", as they call it) when they first encountered him back in Season 1, Episode 7.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The first thing Sharkey sees in Part 1 was a piece of blue TNT. Come the end of Part 3, and it seems he learned how to make other TNT types, as he lent Matthew one in order to finish off the mutant creepers!
  • Colour Motif: The sky is red during the majority of the episode, setting a dangerous, unsettling tone. Surely enough, the house later comes under fire from monsters.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Conall, Elgin, Scott and Alex W are crafting beds in order to fix the world's spawn point. Sharkey proceeds to celebrate - by standing on the bed, he is now taller!
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The Modded Madness trilogy has proven Ross to be a fairly awkward guy who has a difficult time making friends (or talking to women, depending on your interpretation), yet also an absolute beast once he is pressed enough.
  • Damsel in Distress: Ari, who is hekd hostage by a squad of creepers. Beth O'L and Anna briefly become this after a Curb-Stomp Battle with a Mutant Creeper.
  • Dark Chick: Implied with Andr. When Ben asks her if she has ties with Herobrine, she dances around the question before leaving without a word.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Nisha proceeds to rip into the gang for letting Timmy, a villager, into their house, and proceeds to say things that come off as outright racist against villagers. Just about everybody surrounding her has this reaction.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Dylan and Reece make a brief cameo, where it's revealled that they disarmed the creepers holding Ari hostage.
  • Fantastic Racism: Nisha's grudge against Timmy reaches a boiling point in this episode - she outright states that Villagers are an inferior species!
  • Innocently Insensitive: Katie apologises to Herobrine after he opens up and reveals his (admittedly tragic) backstory, then follows up by calling him "Creepy Guy" after forgetting his name.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While Conall was a bit of a jerk about Ross' decision to take on the mutant creepers by himself (to the point of straight-up asking if Ross is retarded), in reality he just doesn't want to see his friend get hurt by potentially charging into an unwinnable battle.
  • The Leader: The mutant creepers are implied to be this to the other mobs, as Beth O'L, Anna and Ross are said to be slaying them in order to lift the control from the mosters attacking the house.
    • Herobrine himself is one to all of the mobs - the mods in the gang's world have given him the ability to control them.
  • Mr. Exposition: A female variant with Andr the Enderwoman, who goes into detail about the End Realm, as well as Herobrine's history with the Ender Dragon.
  • Papa Wolf: After hearing that the mutant creepers are keeping his friend Ari hostage, Ross goes on a warpath to track them down.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Nisha insulting Timmy for being "an inferior species" was already pretty low, but her proceeding to mock Elgin's weight after he called her out for it proceeded in her receiving a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown from him.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Beth O'L and Anna, as the Mutant Creeper hunters, are red and blue respectively. Beth is brave and eager to fight, while Anna is more cautious.
  • Sanity Slippage: Herobrine's backstory reveals that he went through this after the death of his wife, and he ended up seeking a path of death and destruction. 10A joining the world of Minecraft - the one thing he had left - was his breaking point.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Lindsay says this almost verbatim when tensions rise between Elgin and Nisha.
  • Self Deprication: Conall asks Ross, who has announced his intent on attacking the mutant creepers all by himself, if he is retarded, to which Ross replies with a simple "Yes".
  • Ship Tease: In-Universe example with Ben and Andr, whom Emily, Alex D and Amber promptly tease the former about.
    • Ross and Ari get their share of this at the end of the episode, as Emily (again - Shipper on Deck much?) and Alex W comment on how awkward their friendly goodbye was.
  • With Friends Like These...: Ben gives off this reaction when Alex W gives him a letter from "his lady friend", with Alex and Emily proceeding to give Ben lick for it.

Episode 11 - Five Nights at Freddy's 2 (Finale)!

  • Ax-Crazy: The class are seemingly at their most hostile here. Sharkey straight-up admits that he wants to stab Pedro!
  • Big Damn Hero: After three parts of sitting on the bench, Conall makes a grand appearance at the end by shooting Charley in the back of the head with a tranquiliser gun, ensuring he can't escape.
  • Damsel in Distress: Alex D gets kidnapped and interrogated by the other gang partway through the episode.
  • Heel–Face Turn: As a result of Charley's brainwashing potions wearing off, the other gang go through this, coming to their senses and being deeply remorseful over their violent actions.
  • Irony: In Parts 1 and 2, Charley would ingage in silly hide-and-seek style games with the other gang. Him seeing Pedro and Mervin getting him at the end of the episode as part of one big game is what ultimately does him in.
  • Jerkass Realisation: The other gang suffer this concerning their attack on 10A a few episodes ago. Granted, it wasn't their fault.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: It turns out that Charley dropped one of his empty brainwashing bottles on the ground during his escape. It was shortly noticed by Kyle M, causing he and the rest of the group to put the pieces together concerning the other gang's attack on them.
  • Skewed Priorities: During the initial chase, Emily is seemingly more concerned about her own hunger than she is about getting back at her potential murderer.
  • Wham Moment: The revelation that Charley was a former classmate of 10A's, as seen in an old photo Rebecca and Ross stumbled upon, has this in spades.
    • It may be obvious to the viewers, but the scene where Hannah confides to Alex that there's a reason for her and her gang's similarities to the other half of 10A (which was confirmed in the ending newspaper article to have been the result of a DNA cloning experiment by Charley some time ago) also counts.
