The Adventures of 10ACraft is a YouTube series made by TheSuperArtistGamer, made in Mine-imator and styled in a sort of comic-like format. 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.


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, as well as Ross to some degree.
  • 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.

  • 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:
    • 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 epitomised this trope in Season 1, Episode 20.
  • The Cameo: Moreso in recent episodes.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Sharkey.
  • 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.
    • Advertisement:
    • 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 thry 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • O.O.C. 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.
