  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: When Drunky McPanda the Spinda died in the Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Nuzlocke, PBG initially jokes about about how he won't be missed due to how useless he was in battle, but then quickly goes back on what he said a few minutes later when he actually has to release him in the Pokémon Box.
    PBG:: I feel like I'm, like, letting my pet go or something. He wasn't really a warrior, but he was funny... I liked him...

  • Awesome Music: "Open Your Eyes", a song tribute to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild produced as a joint effort between PBG, singer Garrett Williamson, and Yungtown. Along with the song itself being incredible, you'll be surprised at how good of a singer PBG actually is, especially if you're used him singing his silly songs in his normal videos.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: In his "Top 10 Jerks" video, not only does he kill all the kids in Skyrim, he piles them on a fire.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • In his Super Mario 64 Hacking video he quickly mentions a hack that causes Mario's health to decrease over time. In his Chaos Edition Playthrough, the health drain simply doesn't let PBG win, and activates itself whenever it causes the most problems.
    • His Nintendogs review features his new puppy, Namira, pretty heavily. However, she sadly had to be put to sleep a year later.

    • During the seventh episode of Goodwill Games, PBG repeatedly jokes about how close he is to the two million subscriber milestone; sure enough, he soon passed that threshold...only to fall back below it due to losing a bunch of subscribers from the crossfire of the Projared incident.note 
  • In his Top 10 Best Nintendo Wii Games video, he makes a joke about being reported as missing, only to be found playing Harvest Moon: Animal Parade. two years later, another famous gaming YouTuber, Etika, was reported to have gone missing, right after posting a video about his suicidal thoughts, about five days later, his belongings, including his wallet, Nintendo Switch and phone, were found on the Manhattan Bridge, about 20 hours later, his body was found dead about half a mile away from his belongings.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks!:
    • His review of Sonic Heroes basically parrots what a lot of haters of the series have said for years (such as the characters speaking too much and having Sonic as the sole playable character would be an "improvement"), as well as making really nitpicky complaints such as cannons not being an effective mode of transportation or the game's Pinball Zone not being an enjoyable place to live.
    • To a lesser extent, his MySims reviews. While most people aren't complaining (mostly because the series is really obscure compared to its parent series), those who did play the My Sims and enjoyed it were quick to criticize Peebs for being nitpicky and not paying attention to the game's positive merits, like the fun, interesting characters and cute aesthetic. This post, while not mentioning PBG by name, weighs in on the matter in more detail.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight
    • In his "Top 10 Suckiest Enemies in Video Games" video, PBG said this: "Usually I don't talk about the Zelda CD-i games. Like Nintendo, I just prefer to pretend like they never existed.” Two years later, he did a video on The Faces of Evil for Zelda Month. And then he did The Wand of Gamelon for the following Zelda Month.
    • In his video of Ghost Riding The Whip, one of the lines has PBG say how he never can get a date... shortly after, he got together with his girlfriend, Unicornism.
    • In his Putt-Putt Does Some Things video, he jokingly talks about how the lawn-mowing minigame in Putt-Putt Joins the Parade teaches children that "hard work is for chumps" since you don't have to actually mow the whole lawn. Later on, in a developer commentary for one of the other games, a former writer for Humongous revealed that they actually got a complaining letter from an upset mother who wondered how she was supposed to teach her kid to work hard when the game taught him the exact opposite, under the exact same scenario.
  • Ho Yay: He frequently calls Luigi sexy. His song to Luigi in HACKING Mario Galaxy! is really... something.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: PBG's main focus is his 'Review?' videos, but, as shown well on this very wiki, many fans prefer his various Hardcore series'.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "I apologize for that!"Explanation 
    • SAID MOM.Explanation 

How well does it match the trope?
