  • Arc Fatigue: Brought up by Jack in an episode of Tube Tycoon when discussing about how he lost enthusiasm for certain games like Skate 3 and Happy Wheels, which led to him potentially rehashing jokes and creating a sense that there wasn't much more he could do in the game. This is why he brought his Happy Wheels series to an end once it reached its 100th episode.
  • Archive Binge: In mid-November 2015, he uploaded his two thousandth video, and shows no signs of stopping. Most are at least ten minutes long, with some (such as Life Is Strange and Undertale) being over an hour in length. See you in a few months!
  • Awesome Music: Jack's outro music, "I'm Everywhere" by TeknoAXE.
  • Broken Base: The final part of Jack's Until Dawn playthrough features him losing five characters in the space of about half an hour, after doing well for the majority of the game. Many commenters were not happy about this (especially if those killed included their favorite characters), while others were more understanding, realizing that bad outcomes are just a part of the game. Granted, Jack did play the game again and saved all the characters, as well as understand the story more.
  • Can't Un-Hear It: A large sect of the Undertale fandom can't ever hear Flowey as anything but his version now. He's always done great voices, but this one really stuck with people.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: As if Jack taking his Sims 4 kids and locking them up in small featureless spaces more resemblant of cells than bedrooms wasn't enough, Jack treats their deaths like accomplishments. Because of this, the episode saw a small Internet Backdraft.

  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: In episode 4 of Sims 4, Jack teaches us that you can solve all your problems in life by locking your kids in small spaces and neglecting them until they rot in their own filth and starve to death.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Thanks to his Undertale playthrough, Jack's fans have taken to going after YouTube voice-actors like David Near, who had to disable the comments on his own Flowey voice video due to the wrath of JSE fans.
  • Fridge Logic: Jack notes in Sims 4 how Steve can go fishing despite not owning a fishing rod or bringing it to the park.
  • Growing the Beard: Arguably around the start of his GTA V series. Definitely after he was mentioned in a PewDiePie video.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Three days before an incident happened with Mark's friend Daniel, Jack accuses Mark of being sad and depressed in a joking mannernote . After what has happened, it's a lot more chilling than it sounds.

  • He Really Can Act: He's not an actor, per se, but he usually does voices for characters in games he plays, and they're usually quite good. His Flowey voice, however, really knocked it out of the park. There's a reason a lot of the comments on those videos can be summed up as, "Thanks, I didn't need to sleep tonight, anyway."
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • During his playthrough of the Bathroom level in I Am Bread, he tries and fails to go outside via a window, and says "I would have loved to go outside, and be a toast around town. That'd be my dream." In the Garden and Petrol Station levels, he gets to do just that!
    • In this Happy Wheels video, Jack plays a quiz level that includes the question: "Did Leonardo DiCaprio finally win an Oscar?" The correct answer is no...or at least it was until Leonardo finally won his Oscar at the 2016 Academy Awards for his role in The Revenant.
    • In part 2 of his Let's Play of South Park: The Stick of Truth, he mentions how he'd love it if they made a game about the kids' superhero personas. Three years later...
    • A smaller one, but in the part 1 of his HuniePop video, he mentions that changing color of your hair is no big deal and he can do it without breaking a sweat. He eventually actually dyed his hair green.
  • Ho Yay: The shipping fandom of Septiplier.
    • Both Markiplier and Jack constantly tease at this, such as Mark proclaiming himself the wife in The Forest.
    • Jack actually joke-proposed to Mark during a con, but got shot down by him. They now constantly joke about how Jack was dumped by Mark.
  • Internet Backdraft:
    • See Crosses the Line Twice above.
    • Jack's video on the Donald Trump DLC of Surgeon Simulator 2013. Remember when Jack skipped the question about religion and politics in his Bean Boozled Would You Rather? challenge, knowing that they were two controversial topics that would fire up the comment section? Well, he really had no choice here, and even with his attempting to be politically neutral, the video has gained some of the most backlash out of any one of his videos (besides the April Fools' Day video, and that was an anticipated reaction) with over 9,000 dislikes. And that's not even getting into the comment section, which realistically was an absolute madhouse. That's the most we should say about that.
    • The Did You Know Gaming? fanbase really doesn't take kindly to Jack guest-starring in some of the channel's videos, even the one where Jack got to talk about Shadow of the Colossus, his favorite game ever.
    • Fans of Jack's Undertale playthrough don't exactly like anyone else's voices for characters like Flowey, even if "anyone else" happens to be David Nearnote .
    • "Let's Talk!", a since-deleted video Jack made to address Felix being removed from Maker Studios and slandered by the media after some questionable jokes that allowed people to paint him as an anti-Semite/Nazi/white supremacist, got a lot of backlash since Jack didn't 100% stick with Felix; his position stated that he defended Felix for the toxic media backlash, but he didn't support his actions and admitted that what Youtube and Disney did was probably the right thing in a business sense. Prior to deletion, the video gained up to 78,000 dislikes, and its comment section was a general shitstorm accusing Jack of backstabbing Felix or just making the video to save face. The fact that Jack reportedly came to regret some aspects of the video doesn't help.
      • And it also doesn't help that Keemstar (of Drama Alert infamy) and Scarce (also of the Youtube drama variety), two of the biggest drama channels, also latched on to the whole mess. Although Scarce was bad enough for the situation, Keemstar's video on the video, which was Keemstar basically accusing Jack of backstabbing and betrayal Felix, basically started a large Internet flame war in both the comments of their videos between each person's fans, with lots of petty insults, threats, dissing, and over-generalisations made by both sides. Ouch.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Jack succeeded in making a Forced Meme with his "irony" Visual Pun from one of his Reading Your Comments videos.
    • Jack and Mark, with their newly dyed hair, are now being referred to as Cosmo and Wanda respectively.
    • And with Pewds dying his hair blue, there's been a glut of The Powerpuff Girls jokes as well.
    • Now with Mark's hair red, there has been Mark and Jack as Mario and Luigi, respectively.
    • Yet more hair jokes: Jack redyed his hair an insanely vivid shade of green in January 2017, and now he's either glow-in-the-dark or a highlighter.
    • "fuckin grass!"
    • Carrots.
    • Malicious Gamer.
    • Specifically for God of War (PS4), he calls it Dad of BOY, because he plays as a dad and son duo, and Kratos always calls Atreus "BOY".
    • Jack slapping the whiteboard and yelling "LAUGH!" for his "Funniest Home Videos" series. He's also uploaded a greenscreen of himself doing it, so fans can make their own "LAUGH!" clips.
  • Never Live It Down: His gaffe at his PAX West 2016 panel in which a person dressed up in iDubbbz's "Green Cunt" costume asked him "Have you seen the movie Chef!?", which is a meme from iDubbbz's collaborative videos with Filthy Frank, and Jack unintentionally ruined the joke since he didn't know anything about the meme. He did make up for it when he appeared as a cameo on Frank's "HUMAN CAKE" video where he (alongside Jontron, Makemebad35, Joey Salads, KSI, Pewdiepie, Anthony Fantano, and friggen V Sauce gave Max his pubic hair for their cake. Author's Saving Throw and Squick rolled in one.
