  • Acceptable Targets:
    • In this rip, the bassline of Megalovania is replaced with the main theme to Game Theory, as a Take That! to Game Theory's "Sans is Ness" theory.
    • Ajit Pai's inclusion in the King for a Day Tournament. He's practically a Joke Character, with the Running Gags of his proposed takeover intentionally making him look Totally Radical: Two outdated memes that the real Ajit Pai referenced in a campaign ad, and "rips featuring slow internet". His single promotional rip, while not at all Stylistic Suck, is half-hearted at best; even the description, which hardly ever has a joke, calls the rip an """Arrangement""". As for the tournament itself, Ajit Pai predictably lost his only match (against Thanos), getting a pitiful 25% of the votenote  and he was subsequently Killed Off for Real by Thanos using the Infinity Gauntlet to reduce him to dust. However, this is all a direct Take That! to his widely-disliked Real Life political endeavors surrounding The Internet.
      • Subverted with Metal Ajit Pai in King for Another Day; while he lost to Nico Nico in the first round, he won the first round of Losers' Bracket against Adam Levine before losing to Wario Partners, LLP. His beefier source material might have something to do with it.

    • This rip combines Cheato's theme with that of ProJared, less than 24 hours after he was accused of infidelity by his now ex wife.
  • Alas, Poor Scrappy:
    • Despite the hate for Snow Halation, many people were saddened to see it go with the rebootnote . This was further exacerbated after ▀7̩̜̀ ͈͎̭͕͈̣͚̰́G̸͚̞͖̭͖̀R͏̛͇̟̼̺█Ḑ̤̜̙̪̳▓D͙̲̝̘̤̦̣̗̥█ was posted, revealing The Voice offering Chad a deal to merge the pre-reboot and reboot universes, at the cost of Snow Halation. Cue a flood of "Save the snow!" comments.
      • And now you can add the people upset that Chad accepted the offer to this. Now completely subverted in that Chad used his newfound power to bring back "Snow Halation" anyway.
    • Advertisement:
    • Invoked in this rip of Destruction of the Sammer Kingdom, which implies that The Simpsons universe was destroyed.
    • Oddly enough, some of the fans had this reaction to the "Green De La Bean" rips being deleted. Many wanted it gone but quite a few folks admitted flagging them was not the way to do it, as it potentially put the entire channel at risk.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: The Nutshack was commonly believed to be the post-reboot main antagonist or the Greater-Scope Villain responsible for the reboot... until Mr. Rental began killing mashups, resulting in him appearing in the banner with his shotgun, pointed straight at the lighthouse. Then people started to believe that Dick wasn't there to overshadow the other memes, but to protect them from the true enemy. Word of God explained that Tito was indeed meant to be the one responsible for the reboot, but this idea was scrapped because people started liking rips with The Nutshack.
  • Advertisement:
  • Anvilicious: Even if the intention is to dissuade conflict from the fans over their favorite characters losing, the constant "It's not about winning but having fun and meeting new friends" aesop that keeps being brought up on the King For Another Day Mojo can get pretty tiring to read over and over again. Of course, this gets lampshaded to hell in penultimate MOJO!! posts, "The Party" three-parter.
  • Arc Fatigue:
  • Archive Panic: Given the channel's upload schedule has almost always called for multiple uploads every day, you're better off not trying to watch everything. Thankfully, it won't take quite as long to get caught up on the channel's lore, since videos that concern it are very infrequent, averting this entirely.
  • Author's Saving Throw:
    • Due to the incredibly poor reception the fans had towards Green de la Bean rips, as well as calling SiIva out for causing viewers to feel unsafe because of them, they were removed from the channel. Though one rip being taken down by YouTube may have contributed to this as well. When the meme eventually returned to the channel, it became a minor recurrence as opposed to being pushed as the next major meme like before, and it is now no longer painfully loud and additionally incorporated into the song as opposed to coming completely out of nowhere.
    • Shortly after the release of the tenth Christmas Comeback Crisis episode during the 2017 Christmas season (a whole year since the arc was introduced), the channel saw a new channel host: The SiIva A.I., introduced to get the old status quo back (for the most part), which fans were happy to see. 2018 was also seen as a huge Win Back the Crowd year for two other reasons:
      • The Nostalgia Critic takeover early on, which really highlighted the channel's return to form by bringing back old beloved Running Gags, reuploading older rips that were removed, and in general bringing rips that had a larger variety of jokes and remixes to them.
      • Later in the year, we got the next big, ambitious project for the channel: the King for a Day Tournament Arc which was all about the things people liked about the CCC: awesome art, awesome music, and Fandom Nods (which, for the tournament, was upgraded to Audience Participation via voting).
  • Awesome Art: Despite the Christmas Comeback Crisis suffering from Arc Fatigue, fans have praised the drawings made for it, especially as they began greatly improving.
  • Awesome Music: Enough to have its own page.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • Even considering the nature of the channel, Green de la Bean still manages to be this due to the sheer bizarreness of its appearances, featuring distorted audio, weird imagery and terrible grammar, and many rips often resume the original song as if nothing had happened.
    • The Misha incident. On August 29, 2016, in the middle of the Nutshack/Mr. Rental arc, the tower in the channel banner was taken over by a picture of Misha Flipping the Bird, which disappeared an hour later, taking the tower with it. The tower remained missing in the following days, implying that the incident was important to the channel's lore. However, following 9/11, the tower inexplicably returned with the characters still in it (albeit with the the Reboot characters gone and Tito Dick in Loud Nigra's place), and Misha has not played a role in the lore ever since.
    • Subverted big time with Wood Man & Robbie Rotten - A SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis Side Story. It starts off with Wood Man and Robbie Rotten reenacting the Steamed Hams scene from The Simpsons... until Robbie spits out the food they were having. Then they hit you with lore.
    • In Jack and Elmo's first interview, right as the interview is about to be finished, Elmo says the oddly creepy "Kill everything." before correcting himself. It seems like it was going to lead into a Brick Joke, but aside from Elmo innocently reacting to some inappropriate behavior from the other contestants, it never gets mentioned again.
    • One of Professor K's talk segments during his takeover stream has him and his daughter Doctor K reenacting a scene from The Incredibles, specifically an argument between Bob and Helen Parr. The argument has nothing to do with either of their lore, and is tonally different from the rest of the stream in that it's a serious familial dispute (played out by father and daughter rather than husband and wife, and substituting instances of "honey" for "pops").
  • Bizarro Episode: The fake finale of The Christmas Comeback Crisis (later renamed to "Opening Scene - Waluigi's Tacostand"), which feature Waluigi and the Bean running a taco stand, Waluigi causing a portal to appear by putting garlic on tacos, and Wario apparently living on the streets after Waluigi kicked him out.
  • Broken Base:
    • During the early days, there was one between those who didn't like the deception factor and hoped the "high quality rips" meme would fall into irrelevance, and those who felt calling them "rips" was part of the charm. This was also fueled by commenters taking kayfabe to the point of refusing to help people asking for the rip joke. Over time this argument evened out, with people still using the term "rip" but the channel itself relying less on kayfabe, with ridiculous fake games, MAGFest appearances, and comments which have become happy to point out every single joke.
    • The frequent use of "Snow Halation" in rips was another big one. Some would treat it as the channel's worst Running Gag while others would point out that the high number of The Flintstones rips are praised rather than treated as a Discredited Meme. In a case of possible Intended Audience Reaction, the reboot storyline seems to deconstruct and reconstruct this trope in regards to "Snow Halation", and the song has become a beloved meme post-reboot.
    • The channel's return during Halloween, due to it happening so soon after the channel ending.note  Some were relieved to see more rips, while others weren't happy that the "closure" was seemingly another attention ploy. The fact that the rips were noticeably more repetitive (as per the Halloween theming) and the introduction Wood Man as a Stylistic Suck Running Gag didn't help; some found these ironically hilarious, others an insult to injury. Due to the lack of these factors, the later Christmas return was much more universally well-received (prior to its Arc Fatigue)
    • Starting with Season 3, there's the people who wish they would finish up the Christmas Comeback Crisis, and those who dislike the lore and/or only care about the music.
  • Creator's Pet:
    • "Snow Halation" used to be this, as its Forced Meme status came as a result of Love Live! being a favorite of former contributor Triple-Q.
    • Green de la Bean, apparently. After dislike bombing and flagging removed all the videos with it, the channel banner was changed to mourn its loss.
    • Coinciding with the disliked Bean rips, a set of 9/11-based rips also appeared, which were very quickly disliked into oblivion, as many people felt them to be extremely insensitive and ham-fisted.
    • Farting D. Va immediately became this after its introduction in late August 2019, becoming incorporated into almost every other rip despite becoming one of the most despised memes on the channel, even rivaling the hate received by Green de la Bean and earlier Snow Halation / Inspector Gadget rips. Several rip titles (i.e. "For the Fans (Unused Version) - Undertale") point to the SiIvaGunner team being clearly aware of this, but continuing to incorporate it just for the comedic value in the backlash.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Certain videos lean into this.
  • Ending Aversion: Rips that loop certain sections for an extended amount of time get this reaction.
  • Ending Fatigue: Even though the channel formally ended on September 30th, videos continued to be uploaded well into October, November, and even to the next year, including not only rips, but lore with an actual series called "The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis." As a result, some people have assumed that the announced ending was actually just a joke.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Despite only appearing in three rips pre-Reboot, Chad Warden became really popular due to him calling out a part of the fanbase for their hypocrisy and double-standards towards "Snow Halation". He was promptly promoted to protagonist status for the Reboot. His Dying Moment of Awesome at the end of the Reboot only helped his popularity.
    • "We Are Number One" became one of the most well-received memes on the channel despite initially being fairly minor. After the Grand Finale, a lot of fans lamented how it wasn't a proper, staple meme... but when the channel returned for Christmas, it started appearing a lot more.
    • L.A.M.A.J and ERIOIOIRE only have a few sporadic appearances, but fans love them due to the sheer absurdity of their designs and the "who would win?" debates surrounding them.
    • The King for a Day Tournament saw the introduction of Unregistered HyperCam 2, representing late-2000s YouTube. In its matchups, HyperCam 2 managed to beat out its competitors with impressive margins - even King Dedede, who has a cult-like following in the SiIvaGunner community, and it took victory in the very final round of the event against Off the Hook to become King for a Day. Due to its popularity, it returned as an important (non-competing) character in the sequel as an interviewer alongside Meowth.
    • The second tournament had a few as well, such as Law & Disorder who consistently won battle after battle until the semifinals where they finally got obliterated by original tournament veteran DJ Professor K, who also had become a bit of a fan favorite this tournament with his more diverse source material this time around. Not to mention Mariya Takeuchi dominating the losers bracket, to the point that she ended up becoming DJPK's opponent in the final battle after beating out the much beloved MissingNo. with a very slight margin.
  • Even Better Sequel: King for Another Day compared to the original King for a Day event. Despite the increase in characters and the resulting larger workload for the team, they managed to completely outdo themselves by adding a loser's bracket to give each contestant another chance to prove their mettle, greater variety in the source lists, and even a story on the MOJO!! website. Many fans were pleased.
  • Fandom Rivalry: For a lack of better words, the SiIvaGunner fandom holds JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans in much disdain, primarily due to the latter's tendency to facetiously apply elements of the series to other works of media.note 
  • Fanfic Fuel: Potential King for a Day contestants. Even after the period where you could officially send in suggestions ended, the team seemed to encourage fans making Super Smash Bros.-esque "speculation"/wishlists on what characters could make it in. Adding to this, they also played up the "representing a certain niche" aspect of the sourcelists (compared to the first tournament, where the lists had relatively specific things listed). Character concepts promptly flooded the channel's Reddit for a good while. Fueled by this and the announcement that a third KFAD will not happen in the foreseeable future, several KFAD clones have also been created (though with varying quality).
  • Fridge Brilliance:
    • Of course the Grand Finale to the reboot would be a fake-out, as well as the Christmas Comeback Crisis (twice, the first now known as Waluigi's Tacostand). The entire channel was built on Bait-and-Switch jokes.
    • In Unknown From M.E. (OST Version), Knuckles says "freedom will be waiting when the Sonic series dies", which seems weird, as he's a Sonic character. But if he doesn't have to participate in the plots of the Sonic games, he can just do whatever he wants.
    • Why does The Voice Inside Your Head's motivation seemingly change between the Reboot and the Christmas Comeback Crisis? Well, what was his most memorable trait during the Reboot? Disliking "Snow Halation" and wanting it to be removed from the channel. And The Voice returned as a figment instead of a figment-human hybrid like he was originally, so he's doing what the fans remember him doing: Removing anime, like "Snow Halation".
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • To an extent, "We Are Number One" becoming a meme became this when, less than a month later, Robbie Rotten's actor Stefan Karl revealed that he had pancreatic cancer. Because of it, SiIvaGunner promoted Stefan's GoFundMe on Twitter, and it became Heartwarming in Hindsight when in late April 2017, Stefan announced that thanks to the fans' support, he was on his way to making a full recovery. However, he sadly passed away in August 2018.
    • The channel saw an upsurge of Careless Whisper rips right before George Michael's untimely death on Christmas Eve.
    • The Nostalgia Critic's takeover of the channel in April 2018, despite bringing back beloved Running Gags, can be hard to swallow in light of the major controversy that dogged Channel Awesome that very same month. Of course, knowing the kind of humor this channel runs on, it could be intentional. The "Just Monika" reference in the channel banner seems to be a subtle reference.
    • The final rip uploaded during the Grinch takeover was the aptly named "The Grand Finale" from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When the rip was uploaded, many people joked that this would be the last rip on the channel... and surely enough, it terminated the day before their MAGFest panel thanks to Sony Music Entertainment of Japan copyright striking the channel thrice at the same time. Thankfully, the channel was later restored, but one look in the comments will bring the "Funny Aneurysm" Moment right back.
    • Sayo-nara (Unused Reveal Mix) - Doki Doki Literature Club! combines the Burger King foot lettuce meme with Etika's reaction to Sayori's suicide. The next year, Etika committed suicide.
  • Gateway Series: A few fans have been known to pick up Love Live! as the result of SiIva's "Snow Halation" Forced Meme and the general quality of the Love Live! School Idol Festival rips.
  • Genius Bonus:
    • The jokes featured in rips can get pretty damn obscure. Since the channel runs on Kayfabe, you won't be getting any hints from the channel itself; if the comment section and the SiIvaGunner Wiki are both stumped, good luck.
    • The Simpsons replacing The Flintstones in the reboot makes sense, considering that The Flintstones was the most successful animated sitcom until The Simpsons passed it. (It also has a number of Shout Outs to The Flintstones, of course.)
    • "Title Theme & Ending - 7 GRAND DAD" ends with a look at SiIva's room, which features a portrait of the emperor Hadrian. This is among the more subtle jokes on the channel; SiIva is generally depicted as a Living Statue of Antinous, who was Hadrian's lover (and was subsequently deified after his demise due to his relations).
    • While the source behind "Haunted Mansion - Adventures in the Magic Kingdom" is clear to anyone that's played Kingdom Hearts II - the battle theme of Simulated Twilight Town - the actual joke is more obtuse and specific. The first time this battle theme is heard is when Roxas encounters an unusual creature in front of a mansion... that's haunted with creatures just like it.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Etika was taken off the KFAD2 roster in June 2019 due to his high-profile struggles with his mental health at the time, so the team did not want to bring any more unwanted attention to him. Later that month, he took his life. He was given a tribute rip to honor him after the tournament concluded, however.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • He's Just Hiding!: Quite a few people were in denial about the channel having stopped for good. The fact that uploads still occurred well into November to even January supported these claims, but it remained unclear if they're just delayed holiday specials or not due to the nature of the channel. It was eventually confirmed to still be going strong.
  • Ho Yay:
  • It Was His Sled: The channel was meant to trick people into watching fake OSTs via Bait-and-Switch. However, due to the sheer amount of Memetic Mutation generated by the channel, along with the spoof channel nearly eclipsing the original channel's popularity, most people go into one of these videos being in on the joke and waiting for the shoe to drop instead of being surprised by hearing what is anything but a high-quality rip.
  • Memetic Badass:
    • DJ Professor K, being the winner of the King for Another Day Tournament.
    • Etika. Aside from his tragic life cut short that turned him into a Sacred Cow among Nintendo fans, when one takes into account both King for a Day tournaments, he ends up being the only contestant to have actually beaten DJ Professor K.
  • Memetic Loser: Every time anime and/or idol music showed up in a rip during the Christmas Comeback Crisis, several comments would point out how The Voice is a failure at suppressing weeaboo anime bullshit.
  • Memetic Molester: TITO DICK (YEAH DICKMAN, BABY!), naturally. Even more after he started showing up more in the channel's banner.
  • Memetic Mutation: See here.
  • Memetic Psychopath:
    Mr. Rental: Ban. All. Mashups.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Tito Dick (with The Nutshack Theme) was meant to serve as an Arc Villain after the Reboot, as the intent behind the rips were to troll the fandom at large and prove that The Voice wasn't exactly wrong about repetitive rips being bad for the channel. However, the fans started to like the meme, and this potential bit of lore was dropped entirely before it could surface.
  • Paranoia Fuel:
    • A couple of SiIvaGunner's "rips" have a door knocking sound that pops up when you least expect it. Many people in the videos' comments section have noted how realistic the sound is, leading to some people going into a panic because they're tricked into thinking someone is knocking on a door or window next to them.
    • Following the Harlequin Baby incident, numerous viewers have become paranoid about shock images being posted in the channel's videos, despite SiIva assuring viewers that he will do everything he can to prevent similar incidents from occurring.
    • The second rip of "Puzzle Room", the previous version of which contained the aforementioned harlequin baby, initially had comments and likes/dislikes disabled, giving the viewer no indication of whether or not the rip contains the same thing.note 
    • Green de la Bean rips quickly became this, with early viewers not knowing what was in store for them.
  • Replacement Scrappy:
    • The Simpsons and Family Guy themes were this to The Flintstones theme, as several of the rips that use the Simpsons theme were disliked bombed, and both of these memes quickly died out after the Reboot ended. Though, given the Reboot's plot, this was most definitely an Intended Audience Reaction. Chaze the Chat later admitted that the songs are really difficult to incorporate into rips due to their unique chord sets, making it this trope for the team as well.
    • Similarly, while "Snow Halation" was liked and hated in equal measure, opinions on its Reboot replacement "Go My Way" were that it just wasn't as memorable, for better or worse. However, the song was Rescued from the Scrappy Heap after the end of the Reboot.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap:
    • Snow Halation, after being gone for weeks, and Chad Warden accepting The Voice's offer, was brought back by Chad's Heroic Sacrifice, to much praise.
    • As mentioned, "Go My Way" after the Reboot ended and it could co-exist peacefully with "Snow Halation". Unlike the other Reboot memes, "Go My Way" still made consistent (albeit sparse) appearances afterward, and the fans warmed up to it. This also led to its singer, Haruka Amami, being included in the Christmas Comeback Crisis and getting a whole day of rips dedicated to her in April 2017.
    • Green de la Bean was once incredibly loathed by the fanbase for both being pushed as the next big meme by the channel and for being an very unpleasant surprise in every video it was in. Since its "flag nuking" and subsequent return, it has instead become a minor meme, and is now incorporated into the song through the melody behind "U Guessed It" as opposed to a bass-boosted "No Words" randomly coming out of nowhere, and the fans are now much more accepting towards it.
      • During the later weeks of the Christmas Special, Green de la Bean rips seem to come in two flavors- Sometimes, it's played straight, but only to show Stylistic Suck. Other times, the original image is edited to act as some sort of joke. Either way, the fans seem to be more tolerant of the Bean than before.
    • During his takeover, Inspector Gadget got hate from a lot of fans because he appeared in every single rip that he uploaded. However, once the takeover ended and Inspector Gadget rips were no longer omnipresent, fans were able to warm up to him, and rips featuring him became much more liked. The fact that he died at the end of his takeover also helped matters.
    • Averted with "Despacito". Even when fans admit that rips containing the melody of this song are an improvement from the original, they will still claim the latter to be mainstream-pandering trite, and consider the former a statement on the talents of the Siivagunner contributors, rather than the merits of the song itself.
  • Sacred Cow: Invoked by the Voice in the "Opening - Hatred" rip, where he makes it clear that he wants to kill all animenote  - not just the series that poorly represent it - by killing Guts and Spike Spiegel in his murderous rampage.
  • The Scrappy:
    • Virtually any Running Gag that overstays its welcome is liable to becoming this, such as the Inspector Gadget rips. Despite having produced some otherwise good remixes, the cartoon's theme song was abused enough that viewers became sick of it, as addressed in this video.
    • Snow Halation was the most hated Running Gag pre-reboot due to its Forced Meme status and, to a lesser extent, moe backlash. Most of the hate died down as a result of the reboot, though.
    • JustinRPG is also a hated Running Gag as the rips that feature his songs have garnered many dislikes. This may have to do with his bad, monotone singing voice. At least Snow Halation isn't deliberately unpleasant on the ears. This turned out to be intentional, as one part of the steps the Voice took to kill the original universe.
    • Since the reboot, kazoo rips are becoming increasingly hated, practically rivaling Snow Halation in the dislike bomb category. In this case it's mostly because the kazoo rips are, for the most part, just not very good. Crypt Of The Necrodancer rips get this the hardest, since almost every single one is a kazoo rip; many think of it as a waste of potential, and every single one has a roughly equal like to dislike ratio.
    • The Nutshack theme slowly started to become this. While at first it wasn't particularly disliked, as time went on since its introduction, more and more dislikes were placed on videos featuring it. It doesn't help that most rips using it just lazily slap it over the music, resulting in a rather jarring switch. This was intentional, though. In a twist of fate, the joke became a lot more popular after "The Nutshack intro, but..." videos became a meme, causing the channel managers to scrap their plans with the initial Intended Audience Reaction.
    • Bowflex rips, while presenting a nice joke at first, have become increasingly dislike-bombed. Many think that either the joke ran out of steam quick, or was never funny in the first place.
    • In under a week of their initial introduction, rips containing Green de la Bean soon became one of the most disliked rips on the channel, for very good reasons. Not only do they come out of nowhere but they also take the Sensory Abuse to an extreme. It was hated to the point where one of the rips got flagged, promptly resulting in the rest of the bean rips being deleted.
    • The rips based on Silentó's Whip/Nae Nae are notable in the sense that they were largely disliked and were one of the few recurring jokes to not get Rescued from the Scrappy Heap after the typical day of the backroom uploading nothing but those rips.
    • The temporary Jake Paul takeover was not received well, since he was a controversial figure on YouTube. Some people even believed that the rips that were uploaded during it were a case of They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot, or in this situation, rips, especially the Super Paper Mario rips, which were in high demand but have only gotten sparse uploads, usually during the unfavored takeovers. Though, knowing the kind of humor the channel runs on, it could've just as well been the team's Intended Audience Reaction.
    • Dear god, Farting D. Va. First introduced in late August 2019, it became one of the most despised jokes on the channel. Naturally, it was then inserted into almost every alternate rip till the KFAD prep season began, and still occasionally appears afterwards. Fans frequently comment that they now fear clicking on any rip under 1 minute, as these are the ones that tend to include these jokes. Of course, as with all the other Scrappies on the channel, the SiIvaGunner team seems to know how hated the joke is, but continues to include it as they find the backlash amusing.
    • Due to its competitive nature, the King for a Day and King for Another Day tournaments have rosters literally full of these depending on your tastes. Law and Disorder in particular was disliked by a certain sect for its busted source list that includes media with large and active fanbases (Danganrompa and Ace Attorney, but it was also stated to have the potential for Gravity Falls and Mystery Skulls) and it winning against every other contestant up until the semifinals, knocking several well-liked characters such as Weird Al and Papyrus out of the tourney.
  • Shocking Elimination: In the King for Another Day Tournament:
    • Many were not pleased with the elimination of HOBaRT, who was viewed as one of the early favorites to win and got a big push from the SiIva team. Justified as the mixer lost Losers' Bracket to MissingNo., an even bigger favorite to win.
    • Ditto for Off the Hook, the previous tournament's runners-up, who didn't even win a single round; they lost the first round to King Dedede, and then were immediately eliminated by Mariya Takeuchi in the Losers' Bracket.
    • Mr. Krabs goes onto the list as well, as he has the most popular track of the tournament, Mr. Krabs Rave. Not even his competitor, MissingNo., has a single rip that achieved that level of success.
    • Law & Disorder's loss to DJ Professor K certainly counts, though this was more due to previous voting records rather than the elimination itself. The DJ managed to seemingly gain 2,000 votes out of nowhere, an increase several found suspicious including one redditor that made a highly detailed analysis about it. To make matters worse, this match and the grand finals were the only matches to be single elimination, ultimately leaving Law and Disorder as the only contestant to not get a second shot at the crown and placing them lower than the tournament's runner-up who had one more loss than they did.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Rips based on the low-quality midi called "mm2wood", often being off key and downright cacophonic. However unlike Green de la Bean and JustinRPG, these rips manage to keep a rather large amount of likes, giving them this status.
  • Song Association:
    • You will never hear the Flintstones theme the same way again.
    • Following the Harlequin Baby incident, SiIva's fans now associate the Kirby: Planet Robobot track "Program Rhythm" (titled "Puzzle Room" in the rip) with the sight of a baby with Harlequin Icthyosis, if the comments on unaltered videos are anything to go by.
    • This channel is probably the biggest source of exposure The Nutshack and its theme song have ever had, so it naturally became this.
    • Similarly, "We Are Number One" was originally this...until it grew to be a meme more popular than SiIvaGunner itself.
  • Squick:
    • "Dating Fight! (Unused Mix)", which is just the audio of Sans and Toriel having sex backed by a mashup of "Careless Whisper" and "Megalovania". Responses were wonderfully negative.
    • After two successful Koriball streams, another stream went up on May 22nd, 2016, where SiIva streamed the scene from Pupa where Yume consumes Utsutsu's intestines in their bedroom while repeating "onii-chan" constantly.
    • A few videos into the reboot, a video for the puzzle room music for Kirby: Planet Robobot was posted, which eventually switches to an annotated screen with the options "Yes" and "No" written in Russian. While in this screen, a hand slowly comes into the screen and presses the "no" button, causing a distorted image of a baby with Harlequin Icthyosis to appear in the video. The video was made private after a while, but it had already became infamous among the fans, who are now cautious of viewing the rebooted SiIva's subsequent uploads. SiIva broke character to apologize, saying that it was uploaded spontaneously by a team member. The first reupload was a rip featuring the infamous Green de la Bean and was taken down and uploaded on Flustered Fernando, while the second upload had the originally intended image of Kirby.
    • Farting D.Va rips likely got the hate they did for this reason as well.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The "Match Results" theme from the King for Another Day Tournament sounds like the first and second main stanzas of "Someday of my life".
  • Take That, Scrappy!: Invoked several times in the Alternate Reality Game, in which several videos went out of their way to take a jab at Snow Halation and its fans.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: The rip of the Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire battle theme on the revival channel caught some flack for changing the later part of the song to the much-reviled Snow Halation.
  • "Weird Al" Effect:
    • When searching for a video game song that SiIva has ripped, it will usually appear on the first page of results. Where exactly it appears varies, but SiIva is actually the first result in some rare cases (or not-so-rare, since SiIva's high quality rips have covered some pretty obscure titles).
    • Many people watch the real GilvaSunner's videos and briefly forget they're not SiIva's "high quality rips".
    • If you look through mentions of GilvaSunner on Twitter, it is filled with people mistaking his account for SiIvaGunner's.
