- Acceptable Targets: Captain N: The Game Master, the early Nintendo Power issues that spawned him, and the Super Mario Bros. Live-Action Adaptation. Few actual video games are on the receiving end of this as the show usually subverts Accentuate the Negative, but Urban Champion and any baby game for babies gets no mercy.
- Creator's Pet: Pro Wrestling is a recurring favorite both for Hoff and Pete, and they'll surely find a way to fit it in wherever they can.
- Foe Yay: Hoff and Michaud have a lot of...moments, especially regarding each other's facial hair. And then Hoff remembers his Final Fantasy VI save file.
- Older Than They Think: A podcast run by the former editors of Nintendo Power magazine? Most would think of Nintendo Power Podcast, but Power Pros predates it by a year.
- Replacement Scrappy: Every replacement for Chris Slate as co-host is this trope for at least one fan, as none of them have quite the same dynamic with Hoff.
