My name is Jirard "Dragonrider" Khalil, and I am... The Completionist.


Jirard "Dragonrider" Khalil is The Completionist. Every week, he completes a game 100% and then reviews it, detailing the quality of the game overall and whether or not the payoff is worth the hours spent on completing it. Refreshingly, Jirard uses very little (if any) profanity* in his reviews, making them reasonably family-friendly, as well as informative and entertaining. His videos originally contained ongoing storylines, but those have been phased out after the departure of his co-host, Greg, in 2015. Nowadays his videos are made up of self-contained reviews with occasional skits.

Unlike other reviewers, Jirard doesn't rate a game based on a Four-Point Scale or numberical/alphabetical grades. Instead, his ratings are as follows:

  • Complete It! - The game is relatively easy and/or fun to complete, or the reward for getting 100% completion is worth the struggle.
  • Finish It! - The game is still a lot of fun to play and finish whatever Story Mode is in the game, but getting all the collectibles and/or achievements is more trouble than it's worth.
  • Play It! - The game is a lot of fun to play, but can get old with extended sessions or the late stages are far too annoying to deal with.
  • Look At It! - The game is kind of boring or terrible to play, but interesting enough to check it out via a YouTube series or something similar.
  • Donate It! - The game is horrible and should never be played by anyone sober. Originally titled "Burn It!"

Originally, his reviews were divided into rigid sections: Story*, Presentation*, Gameplay*, Final Level*, The Struggle* and the Completion Bonus*, before Jirard gives his final Completionist Rating. However, the show went under a massive retool after the Tales of Symphonia review in the October of 2016, getting an new interface as well as the new segments: The Legend*, The Quest*, The Battle*, and The Reward*; with only the rating system left from the original system-with each of the new segments merging and mixing previous aspects. While he still uses this format even today, the segment labels have changed to custom ones based on the title being reviewed.

Aside from the main The Completionist series, Jirard has several side series and is a frequent contributor to other channels.

  • The Completionist: New Game + - Jirard re-completes the first 120 games on his channel, offering up new perspective and analyzing any new content for the games that came out since the original video.
  • The Completionist DLC - A look at any additional DLC for a game that Jirard has already made a video on. Unlike the main series, this one only has two ratings: Download It! or Skip It!
  • Top Tens - Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Jirard lists his Top 10 Best or Worst of a specific topic, based on his own experiences.
  • The Completionist Ranked - Jirard makes a tier list of various subjects (such as Pokémon starter trios) based on his own criteria.
  • If You Liked, You Should Try - Jirard focuses on a popular game, then gives a variety of recommendations of other games, particularly lower profile or indie games, that offer up similar gameplay experiences.
  • Super Beard Bros - A Let's Play channel where Jirard is joined by one of his head writers Alex Faciane. Originally, the main draw was Alex providing various trivia and knowledge on the game in question while Jirard played, but that was eventually dropped when people other than Jirard handled the playing. Early episodes often had Greg as a guest, but those videos were lost after the video purge. Eventually, producer Brett Bayonne joined the series officially.
  • Scary Game Squad - A series headed by Jesse Cox over on his channel, with Jirard and Alex teaming up with him and Davis from The Warp Zone, which specializes in horror games.
  • Big Bad Bosses - A pop group Jirard belongs to, along with Alex and Satchell "SatchBag" Drakes, with a rotating fourth member each album. Each group member cosplays as a video game villain (Jirard is Bowser) as they sing about the trials and tribulations of being a bad guy.
  • Complete Chaos - Another band Jirard is a part of, this one does heavy metal covers of established video game songs.

There are also a variety of shows and formats that Jirard has either paused or ended:

  • The Mediocre-ist - Jirard and Greg switched roles, but since Greg is much less skilled than Jirard, his games don't get anywhere close to 100% completion. Retired completely after Greg left.
  • Defend It! - A skit-based show, heavily based on Ace Attorney games, where Jirard acts as the defense attorney, trying to defend a heavily criticized game and shine a light on the positives. Opposing him is prosecutor Andrew Campbell, with Jesse Cox serving as judge. Eventually retired.
  • Why We Love Games: Stories Through Gaming - Rather than a review, this series focuses exclusively on personal experiences Jirard and other guest YouTubers have had with the subject game in question. Eventually retired and folded into the main Completionist series.
  • Insert Coin to Play - Jirard and his friends head to an arcade and have fun with the games there.
  • The Completionist FIRSTS - Where Jirard gives a brief first impression of a brand new game, with the explicit intent on not going for 100% completion.
  • Here Comes a New Challenger! - Jirard takes a deep dive at a new game before he's able to 100% it, complete with a unique ratings scale. Due to fan feedback, this series was discontinued and folded into the main show.
  • The Hype - Jirard takes a look at an upcoming game and gives his thoughts on it, usually positive.
  • God of Work - A scripted series made for G4TV, starring Jirard. Essentially a merging of God of War and The Office (US), it focuses on Kratos struggling to work an office job in between his released titles. After G4's closure, Jirard successfully gained the IP rights, but does not have the funds to make a Season 2 as of yet.

Originally, Jirard was the owner of a collection of web series called That One Video Gamer, as well as partnered with Polaris. However, he eventually left Polaris after some internal strife and That One Video Gamer was eventually dissolved to just being an alternate brand name for Jirard's business ventures.

For the majority of four seasons, the videos heavily featured Jirard's producer and comedic partner, Greg Wilmont (The Mediocre-ist) providing much of the comic relief, and later with Alex Faciane of "The Dex." In early 2015, Greg left the show after a falling out between him and Jirard (alluded to be because of the difficulties in maintaining a friendship while running a business, though neither have said much in regards to the details). In August 2017, Jirard eventually confirmed his falling out with Greg and that sometime after they parted, Greg had requested, and then demanded, that he pull down all the videos featuring the two (that's 120 videos from The Completionist alone and more if you include other videos by TOVG as a whole). In a vlog, Jirard noted that it was a difficult decision and he considered fighting it, but ultimately decided to comply. He then announced that he would recomplete all 120 of those games in a new bi-weekly series called "The Completionist: New Game Plus", finishing that up in 2023. Jirard encouraged his viewers to upload the old episodes and disseminate them before he pulled them, and they can all be viewed here, for free and without ads.

In 2021, G4TV was relaunched, and Jirard became one of the first hosts recruited for the new service. He was a constant on both X-Play and Attack of the Show!. Due to his responsibilities for G4, he had to scale back The Completionist to six videos a month (two Wednesdays, four Saturdays), and only appear on Super Beard Bros on the "'Eff it" videos. Once G4 closed down again, he refocused his energy on Completionist and Beard Bros.

He frequently streams on Twitch late at night here.

    Tropes A-M 
  • Accidental Misnaming:
    • In "Luigi's Mansion":
  • Achievements in Ignorance: After seeing Cranky claim he beat Donkey Kong Country in under an hour with one life, Jirard proceeds to do just that, thinking it's a real challenge.
    • When he recompleted the game for New Game Plus, he took advantage of his network of contacts to talk to the original developers of the game, confirmed that it was just a joke, and changed his rating to "Complete It" as a result.
  • A Day in the Limelight: All of the episodes involving The Mediocre-ist ("TMNT", "Pokemon Snap", "Red Dead Redemption") are this for Greg, usually serving to showcase how bad he is at gaming, except "Red Dead Redemption", in which he fully completed the game 100%, leading to Jirard's Heroic BSoD in the Season 1 finale.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Greg falls into this more often than Jirard. Though Jirard is far from immune.
    Jirard: ... Can I touch your boobs?
  • Anachronic Order:
    • Not the show itself, but over the course of the series, Jirard has reviewed the first four Mega Man X games (X, X2, X3 and X4) out of order, as Episode 1, 71, 99 and 41 respectively.
    • The original Crash Bandicoot was played long after the second and third games.
  • Audience Participation: In his Bubble Bobble episode, various clips are shown of people doing something to the Bubble Bobble theme song.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Averted. Greg spurting out "BEARS!" somehow never gets old.
  • Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: According to "Super Mario Brothers 3", William Shakespeare is actually Greg.
  • Berserk Button: Jirard really doesn't like time trials, especially ones required for 100% completion. When he re-completed Crash Bandicoot 2, this time the remade version, he downgraded it from a "Complete It" to a "Finish It" solely due to the addition of time trials.
  • Big "NO!": Greg lets one out in Megaman X3 when he realises that Jirard is trapped in his own soul, damned to eternally playing Sonic '06.
  • Book Ends: The first and last episode of Season 1 begin with the same monologue, because Jirard thinks it's the first episode of the show again.
  • Brick Joke: Many.
    • In "Pokemon", Jirard and Alex both wear shirts with colours matching the games they are playing (Red and Yellow respectively). Then Greg walks in, wearing a black shirt despite the fact that he is playing Blue Edition. Jirard and Alex get extremely angry at him, since Alex had to buy a yellow shirt specifically for the occasion. At the end of the episode, Greg can briefly be seen wearing the same shirt with a piece of paper reading "Blue Shirt" taped onto it.
    • In the review of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Jirard was unable to pronounce Agahnim, so Greg suggested to call him Agrabah. Fast forward to Jirard's review of Aladdin's SNES game, and Jirard desides to call the city of Agrabah "Agahnim". It returns once more in the review of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, with Agahnim referred to offhand, as Agrabah.
    • During the Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back episode, after Jirard uses an "Epic Manoeuvre" joke, the guys from Continue? appear on screen in a Codec Call, á la Metal Gear. They mention how Jirard should make an episode on Breaking Bad. Skip ahead to episode 48, and...
    • In the Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) 100th episode special, the side story involving the office trying to free Jirard from the game case brings them to contact the Continue? crew; they decide to not help, claiming Jirard owes Josh twenty dollars. Fast-forward to when Greg tries to convince Jirard to not complete the game's DLC...
    Greg: You don't have to do this! You don't owe this game anything! You don't own ANYONE anything, except for ME a party hat... and Josh twenty bucks.
  • Catchphrase: Quite a few, mostly provided by Greg.
  • Call-Back:
    • In "Super Mario Sunshine", Jirard and Greg notice that Mario looks like he's humping Yoshi. Greg asks why the last three Nintendo games they reviewed have featured the main character humping things.
    • In "Megaman X4", Jirard refers to "Spark Mandrill Syndrome", and does a skit similar to the one in "Megaman X".
    • In "Gunstar Heroes", Greg brings up the Missiles For Kids campaign from "Diddy Kong Racing".
      • In the same episode, Greg's singing of "All by myself!" is a Call-Back to "Luigi's Mansion".
    • In the Jumping Flash! review, Greg returns to find that Jirard is still on meth from the Breaking Bad episode, having 'completed' Netflix again.
  • Cliffhanger:
    • "Sonic 3 and Knuckles": Jirard is telling viewers to send in suggestions for games as usual, since it's not like some developer is going to tell him to to play their game... Then he gets a tweet from Ed McMillen, who tells him that he'll never beat Super Meat Boy - a game which Jirard had never played prior to the video...
    • "Red Dead Redemption": Jirard goes insane when Greg actually manages to complete Red Dead Redemption, calling himself "The Comportionist".
    • "Super Mario 64": A mysterious figure appears behind Jirard and backstabs him, trapping him inside Dark Souls.
    • "Spyro The Dragon": Jirard storms off, fed up of Greg making fun of the wings he's wearing due to a lost bet. Then the Xbox 360 that trapped Jirard in Dark Souls appears behind Greg and traps him inside Conker's Bad Fur Day.
    • "Hyrule Warriors": Jirard's arch-nemesis The Internet appears to remind him of his 3-year anniversary and tells him he has put off his long-anticipated review of Skyrim long enough, demanding he review it the following week.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Greg. That's why we love him
    • Jirard has his moments.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Blind reviews are indicated by the thumbnail of his videos being purple, whereas games he has played in the past already are blue. Yellow indicates that the review is a special of some kind (so far only used for Halloween specials Banjo-Kazooie and Dead Space, as well as Final Fantasy VII Month) and turquoise means the game is part of a collection pack.
  • Corner of Woe: The Aladdin (Capcom) episode features this. Jirard, Greg and Dodger all end up walking down a hall in despair multiple times during the review.
  • Dance Party Ending: A few times, such as in the Aladdin (Capcom) episode, with Greg singing "Never Had A Friend Like Greg".
  • Disney Death: Jirard's "death" in "Super Meat Boy".
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: The first episode is practically a Cluster F-Bomb compared to later episodes.
  • Foreshadowing: In the "Red Dead Redemption" review, Greg offhandedly remarks, "Don't be so sure I couldn't complete this game!" Guess what happens at the end of the episode.
  • Grand Finale: It's confirmed that when Jirard is eventually finished with the show, the final episode will be his favourite game of all time: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. In his "Top 10 SNES Games" episode, he also indicated that his second-to-last episode would be "Final Fantasy VI''.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: In a few episodes, notably PeanutButterGamer for the Luigi's Mansion episode, ProtonJon for the Gunstar Heroes (and Jirard in turn guest stars in his Let's Play of the game) and Contra 3 episodes, Dodger of Press Heart To Continue for the Aladdin (Capcom), and Mat-Pat from Game Theory for the Metroid Prime review.
    • Collaboration Month, kicking off Season 3, was of course built on this trope, featuring Pat The NES Punk, Caddicarus, ProJared and Jesse Cox for individual reviews.
  • He's Back!: After the Heroic BSoD below.
  • Heroic BSoD: In "Megaman X4", the Season 1 finale, Greg 100%ing Red Dead Redemption and doing a competent review breaks Jirard. It takes Greg sucking at Mega Man X4 to bring him out of it.
    • In his 100,000-subscriber special, Jirard gets invaded and stabbed in the back before he can finish his review of Super Mario 64 and ends up inside of Dark Souls, a game that never ends. In the next episode, after Greg stabs Jirard's Xbox, he comes back to reality to give his final rating for Super Mario 64.
  • Heroic RRoD: Parodied in the Super Meat Boy episode. Jirard beats the game, and collapses, presumably dead. Greg prepares to take over the show and do the outro... When Jirard wakes up, having just taken a nap. Greg carries on regardless.
  • Hey, That's My Line!: In the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS episode, Xander Mobus says "BUT BEARDMAN!" Greg is not amused.
  • 100% Completion: The entire point of the show.
  • Hype Backlash: invoked
    • Jirard had a miserable time playing Skyrim, mostly because it's open ended nature completely clashed with his style of 100% completion. Lampshaded, when the Internet steals his beard in revenge for his blasphemy.
    • Upon his dreaded revisit to the first game in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, Jirard admits he cut the game a lot of slack the first time around due the teased lore and how it was the new "it thing" at the moment. However, six games deep into the franchise now he's much less forgiving of the game's flaws and reduces his previous rating of a Finish It to a mere Play It, stating that after the first few nights the game turns into an annoying Luck-Based Mission not worth the pain and effort, especially since finishing the five nights doesn't even give you anything (aside from a star on the main menu).
  • I Have Many Names: Jirard, Dragonrider, The Completionist, Beardman, King Baldman, and of course, Shirraco the Laser Clown.
  • Idiosyncratic Ratings Scale: Jirard uses a rating scale based on how much he feels the game in question is worth investing the time to complete it. The scale, from best to worst, is:
    • Complete it (100% completion is worth it)
    • Finish it (Better to just focus on getting to the end rather than getting everything.)
    • Play it (Meant for on-and-off casual play.)
    • Look at it (Not really worth getting, better to just watch videos of others doing it)
    • Donate it (formerly Burn it) (So niche only a rare few would bother with it.)
  • Important Haircut: In the God of War episode, Jirard discovers and opens Pandora's Box. Inside is an enchanted razor which shaves his beard into a goatee resembling Kratos'. In addition, when competing in the King of the Web campaign, Jirard shaved his head, causing Greg to refer to him as "King Baldman" for the rest of the month.
  • Kill It with Fire: The final fate of Sneak King, Heart of Darkness, Megaman X 3, thanks to Jirard's Demonic Possession, and Sonic '06 through fan videos.
    • This used to be the fate of games so miserable as to be unplayable. However, fan backlash to Jirard actually burning games, and the allusion to burning books, made him reconsider, and "Burn It" is now "Donate It", because someone enjoys it.
  • Laughing Mad: Jirard is reduced to this state by the end of the Sneak King review.
  • Leitmotif: DK Island Swing. Initially, this song was used during the Completionist Bonus section of each video. After the remodeling, DK Island Swing was used for the entirety the final section of the show—the Reward (a combination of the Completion Bonus and Struggle sections from the old model). Specifically, the version of the DK Island Swing used on the show is the shortened version from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, Jirard's favorite video game of all time. The bonus stages where this song played in was a key factor for the existence of the show.
    • After the remodel that began with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, DK Island Swing begins to be remixed into other songs from a few games Jirard completes (such as Metroid: Zero Mission and Punch-Out!!), but other Donkey Kong Country songs are also used (like in DuckTales: Remastered and Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]). Eventually, the DK songs were scrapped during the final segment of each show, instead using songs from the discussed games themselves.
    • A secondary leitmotif for Jirard is Critical Hit from Wild ARMs. Prior to the remodeling, this song plays throught the Struggle section of each video. After the remodeling, however, Critical Hit was removed from the show due to the Reward section combining the Completionist Bonus and Struggle sections of the show. However, it made a return in the New Game Plus series to bring back nostalgia of the old model of the show, beginning to play as Jirard tallies the statstics of each completed game. However, it was eventually phased out and replaced by DK Island Swing, just like the remodeling of the actual show. Unlike the main series, which phased out the song eventually, the song is still used on this show for nostalgic purposes.
    • Jirard also has a third leitmotif that is heard only rarely. Whenever there's an insane obstacle in the way of completing a game that Jirard needs to discuss, the song Grand Finale from Final Fantasy VI plays as he talks about it. The rare section Grand Finale is in comes between the Battle and the Reward sections of his reviews.
  • Luck-Based Mission:
    • Gives a good rant on his Sneak King review.
    • During his second go at the first game in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, he changes his initial rating of a Finish It to a lesser Play It because of this, stating that after the first couple of nights the game becomes painfully luck-based and just isn't worth the anguish for practically no reward for bothering to actually complete all 5/6 nights.
  • Madness Mantra: After unleashing some epic Angrish upon learning the infamously hard 20/20/20/20 mode has been returned to Five Nights at Freddy's 4, Jirard kept repeating "This game is really hard and it makes me cry."
  • Million to One Chance: The Luck-Based Mission in Sneak King. Jirard's odds of success? 0.000045673(repeating). And he still managed it.
    • And then he had to do it again for New Game Plus...and he managed to do it again!. He also mentioned that it was a lot less stressful the second time around, because he was streaming it while he was completing it the second time, and the interaction with his fans was a lot of fun, despite the insanity of the challenge.
  • Mushroom Samba: Briefly in the Yoshi's Island episode.
  • Mythology Gag: In "Megaman X4", Jirard repeats many of the lines from the "Megaman X" review and many others due to his insanity.

    Tropes N-Z 
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Jirard, his dog and Greg deliver one to Sneak King before burning it. It involved The People's Elbow.
  • Overly Long Gag: Many, thanks to Greg:
    • Basically all of the "But Beardman!" sections, but most notably in "Sonic 3 and Knuckles".
    Greg: But Beardman! Sega stopped making consoles since the Dreamcast. Why are they still a company? Haven't they made like 150 Sonic games? Why is he blue? Is Tails into dudes? What's an echidna? How old is Sonic? Why is Doctor Robotnik weird? What the hell is Team Chaotix? What if Sonic and Mario fought? Smash Brothers! I didn't know Sonic liked sports— Mario vs Sonic at the Olympics. Sonic is a werewolf? Why is Sonic in Agrabah? Aliens! BIG THE CAT!
    • In "Sonic Adventure":
    Greg: But this is America! Home of baseball! Apple pies! Hamburgers! Shoes! ...Backwards hats! Candy necklaces! Post-it notes! Tissue paper! Twist-ties! ...Metronomes! ..Ch—... Cheese! ...And... Ovens! AMERICA!
  • Once an Episode: When introducing the game of the week, Greg will say "BUT BEARDMAN!" before asking some silly (but sometimes interesting) questions. He's supposedly predicting what the video's comments section will be saying. Lampshaded in the Breaking Bad episode, which Greg is absent for due to his wedding. Jirard takes this role in the Mediocre-ist episodes by saying to Greg, "But Clean-Shavedman!"
    • At the end of the episode, Jirard will ask viewers to "FaceTwitTambleGram" him before saying "Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to do X".
    • Nowadays, near the en of his reviews, Jirard says "While I (re-)completed *insert game here*, there were..." Jirard then proceeds to list stats for the game, including total hours of playtime, number of achievements unlocked, and number of collectables collected. The stats always end with a number of something that isn't listed. It can be either a Running Gag or something else relating to the completed game.
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: Jirard and Greg both have it for Catherine with a C in the Catherine review.
    • Comes to a head in the Yoshi's Island review, where Jirard falls into a depression over her, binging on Chex Mix.
  • Precision F-Strike: The F Word in the middle of the 'BFG'' is completely uncensored, the first time in the series.
  • Record Needle Scratch: Occurs in the Gunstar Heroes review when ProtonJon makes a BEARS! joke and Greg takes offense.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Jirard's dog which occasionally makes an appearance.
  • Rule of Three: From the Shovel Knight episode.
    Greg: YOU! You measly turnips are no match for my shovel! Onions quiver at the sight of my spade! Also, a third clever vegetable reference!
  • Running Gag: Oh so many, though they've fallen out of use since Greg's departure due to Jirard largely playing it solo. A few memorable examples include...
    • BUT BEARDMAN!Appearances
    • It's Neeko! The Price-Gouging Cat!Appearances
    • Gitches, with Old Man Snitches!Appearances
    • BEARS!Appearances
    • Shirraco, the Laser Clown!Appearances
    • BIG THE CAT!, whose existence Jirard desperately tries to gloss over in "Sonic Adventure".Appearances
    • Greg’s insanity being fuelled by his addiction to smoothies.Appearances
    • Clean your room, America.Appearances
    • Getting sandwiches has popped each episode since Greg's return in the Jumping Flash! review.Appearances
    • Time Out (with Greg)!Appearances
    • "So Jirard, you ever going to do the Mario All-Stars pack?"Appearances
  • Running Gagged: All running gags involving Greg were retired following his departure from the show.
  • Sanity Slippage: Jirard, during the X4 review, as a direct consequence of Greg managing to complete Red Dead Redemption in the previous episode.
    • Jirard goes through this again during "Breaking Bad" when Greg leaves and Jirard is led to believe that all of Netflix is a game, and successfully tries to complete it.
  • Sell-Out: Has admitted that if game companies want to give him copies of their games before their release date, he will gladly play them to completion and use his review to advertise the new game. During his Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 review he even says outright if Capcom sends him a copy of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite before the official release date, he will turn his video review for it into a commercial.
  • Shout-Out: Both Aladdin episodes with Dodger feature Arrested Development's slow walk as a Running Gag.
    • The destruction of Sneak King is reminiscent of the printer destruction scene from Office Space.
  • The Stinger: Occasionally pops up to introduce next week's game. A notable example at the end of the Sonic Adventure 2 Battle episode, with Jirard tossing and turning in bed, agonizing over which game to do next for Sequels Month... Then Greg appears behind him, and simply says... "BEARS!", indicating that they've chosen Banjo-Tooie.
  • The Cake Is a Lie: It appears as a Running Gag for (fittingly) the review of the Trope Namer.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Expresses this when starting his Tales of Symphonia review, knowing that the Tales JRPG series of games are notorious in their sheer amount of content, which is the bane of any 100 percent completionist.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: In the review of Crash Bandicoot Warped. Lampshaded, natch.
    Jirard: Some of these level designs just seem somewhat ripped from Crash 1 and 2. Nevertheless, this game does everything very well, and it should be praised for it.
    Greg: Here game, here game! That's a good game. Who's a good game? You are!
    • In the Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal review, Twobat the Zubat earns the favor of the shiny Crobat after she shuns the attention of the cool crew who had been mercilessly mocking him up to that point in the series.
  • Wham Line:
    Jirard: Wait... you completed a game?! But you're the Mediocre-ist... That means if you're the Mediocre-ist, what does that make me?
    Greg: Well, you're still the Completionist.
    Jirard: Who am I? I gotta be someone else... I can't be the Completionist anymore... Means I gotta be the Comportionist... Tell you how to eat... How to eat your two thousand calories worth of daily intake...
    • "Super Mario 64" has two, both in onscreen text:
    Dark spirit n00bhunter1138 has invaded!
    The Completionist died.
    Jirard: This game should BURN IN HELL.
  • Wham Episode: Any of the reviews that are focussed on plot become these compared to the normal reviews.
    • "Super Meat Boy": Jirard completes the game at long last, but not without dying in the process. Greg valiantly takes over the show, declaring himself the Mediocre-ist. Luckily it turns out that Jirard had just passed out, but this episode still marked the birth of the Mediocre-ist.
    • "Red Dead Redemption": Greg actually completes Red Dead Redemption, and Jirard goes completely insane as a result, abandoning his "Completionist" persona completely.
    • "Megaman X4": As Jirard's review becomes less and less coherent, he eventually goes into "Beard Hibernation Mode", rendering him completely frozen and unresponsive. However, when Greg attempts (and fails) the first level of Megaman X4, Jirard breaks out of his comatose state and, after regrowing his beard, gets ready for a second season, becoming The Completionist once more.
    • Meta example: The "Thank You Greg Wilmont" video, which announced Greg's departure from the show. Suffice to say, fans (especially Jirard) were upset.

"So, with that in mind, guys, I give this page my completionist rating of... "Complete It"!"
