  • Acceptable Targets:
    • Helena Bergström and Colin Nutley, because Felix believes them to be untalented and nepotism almost always being involved around their movies.
    • The Sune reboot and the Åsa-Nisse films, because they made a lot of money in the box office despite them, to Felix, being very abysmal movies.
    • The raggare subculture.
    • The Guldbagge Awards. According to Felix, there just aren't a lot of Swedish movies worth awards, which results in The Guldbagge Awards awarding what sucked the least and not movies that are actually good.

  • Bizarro Episode: S2E08 of Mystikhörnan is structured more like a weird parody of a sitcom than anything else, and even for Mystikhörnan standards, it kind of comes out of nowhere.
  • Critical Research Failure:
    • Morgan Månstråle's theories have a lot of holes in them. He doesn't like having them pointed out.
    • Even though Felix' videos are usually very well researched, he sometimes slips up. It usually happens in reviews of movies that are adaptations and Felix did not Read The Freaking Source Material. He lampshades and justifies this in his review for My Little Pony: Equestria Girls (2013), saying that he doesn't have the time to watch the show just to understand the movie.
      • However, one major slip up he did in regards to this comes from his review of the movie adaptation of The Circle, where he implies that Anna-Karin raped her love interest, which doesn't happen in the movie nor the book.
      • In the review for Nattbuss 807, Felix seemingly doesn't know that there's a part of Stockholm named Handen (which is also the Swedish word for "the hand"), which leads to him being confused when a character says there's been a murder in Handen.
      • In the review for Under ditt parasoll, a movie starring the Swedish band Sven-Ingvars, Felix shows that his research about the band went not so much further than the history of the band, shown in the prologue to the review. The plot involves two villains wanting to steal the sheet music to a potential hit song after they failed to buy the rights for it, and Felix questioned why they had to go through a lot of hassle to do so when they could just steal the sheet music from the pianist during a saloon scene in the movie. However, song that the saloon pianist plays is not the song in question, but rather an older hit song by the band.
      • In some early episodes of Felix Recenserar, he has a hard time identifying the slang words for police used in some of the movies he's reviewing.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • Quite a few videos feature jokes about Swedish TV personality Martin Timell. Nowadays, those jokes can be pretty hard to stomach given the accusations of sexual harrassment and rape that arose toward Timell during October 2017.
    • In the Första Intrycket episode for Tre Solar, Felix and Basse had a pretty lighthearted reaction to the death of Rikard Wolff's character, joking that it'd stop him from doing the voice of Scar.note  It becomes a lot harder to watch come Rikard Wolff's passing just barely 6 months after the video was uploaded. Making things even worse is The Lion King (2019) - in a sense, Wolff was prevented from voicing Scar by dying, just like Felix and Basse said.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Happens regularly to Felix, especially when he's reviewing a particularly bad movie.

  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Felix argues that this is the reason Show Me Love was the winner of a poll deciding on what movie he should review during December 2013 despite it, in his opinion, being a pretty good movie. He says that it created the mold for how Swedish YA fiction looked like during the Turn of the Millennium, leading to this trope happening to people exposed to YA fiction made during this time period.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Felix argues that Daniel Lehmussaari's films, Evil Ed, and Hata Göteborg all fall under this.
