  • 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a Joke Character, with the Running Gags of his proposed takeover intentionally making him look Totally Radical: Two outdated memes that the real Ajit Pai referenced in a campaign ad, and "rips featuring slow internet".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. However, this is all a direct Take That! to his widely-disliked Real Life political endeavors surrounding The Internet.
  • Alas, Poor Scrappy:
      Advertisement:
    • 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.
    • Invoked in this rip of Destruction of the Sammer Kingdom, which implies that The Simpsons universe was destroyed.
    • Advertisement:
    • 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 has been commonly cited to be the post-reboot main antagonist or the Greater-Scope Villain responsible for the reboot. That is, until Mr. Rental began killing mashups, resulting in him appearing in the banner with his shotgun, pointed straight at the lighthouse. Some commenters now believe that Dick isn't there to overshadow the other memes, he's there 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 in recognition of The Nutshack's Ensemble Dark Horse status.
  • Arc Fatigue:
      Advertisement:
    • The Continuity Reboot eventually caught flack for this, partially because the new rips weren't as memorable on the whole and partially because the plot developed quickly enough that any newcomers would have to catch up in a hurry.
    • The "Christmas Comeback Crisis" has been criticized for going on for several months, long after the Christmas season was over. Chaze the Chat eventually broke character to address this, since it was also causing a lot of confusion. In addition, the channel seems to be moving its focus away from the arc, with Episode 9 being a joke episode as of this writing, the smaller amount of lore rips, and Haltmann being in control of the channel.
  • 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. And good friggin' luck trying to find any rips that have been deleted, if you even notice their disappearance.If you want the specifics 
    • Despite this, it won't take very long to get caught up on the channel's lore. Videos that concern it are very infrequent, thus 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.
    • The 2018 April Fools Day Prank was seen as a return to form for the channel, serving as a huge Win Back the Crowd with the reuploads of old rips, and rips that had a larger variety of jokes and remixes to them.
    • The fact that as of 2018, the channel's rips are no longer 100% reliant on the "Christmas Comeback Crisis" due to its Arc Fatigue and limiting nature of the types of rips that could be uploaded.
  • 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.
  • 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:
    • While the general consensus is that the uploads are usually Awesome Music, there are some who don't like the deception factor and hope that the "high quality rips" meme falls into irrelevance, while others feel that calling them "rips" is part of the charm. Not helping is that commenters tend to take kayfabe to the point of refusing to help people asking for the source material.
    • The frequent use of Snow Halation in mashups is a big one. Some treat it as the channel's worst Running Gag while others will point out that the high number of The Flintstones mashups are praised rather than treated as a Discredited Meme.
    • The "reboot" of the channel which saw the end of the run of Grand Dad, The Flintstones theme, and other memes as running gags. Some felt that the jokes were starting to show their age and that demoting them to occasional gags was a good thing, but others missed seeing Grand Dad and other old memes on the channel and see the new running gags (such as The Simpsons theme) as poor replacements.
    • Regarding the hubbub surrounding the infamous "Puzzle Room" rip: was it truly horrifying and deserving of being taken down, or is it merely crossing the line twice and the first camp overreacting?
    • The ARG itself becoming more up front. Previously, the story was told through specific usage of uploads, such as twelve hours worth of the Super Mario 64 cave music to indicate a desire to travel between universes via referencing another meme as opposed to just telling people what's happening. There's also the false dichotomy presented within what seems to be the final decision that, for some people, defuses any real urgency because neither solution is favorable and thus worth contributing to.
    • Surprisingly, even The Voice's offer to merge the realities counted if only because it meant that "Snow Halation" would be removed in the process. Especially after this, where Chad accepted the offer. Some were glad it was gone, while many were upset for the same reason. Though this turned out not to be the case.
    • In a case of possible Intended Audience Reaction, the entire point of the reboot seemed to Deconstruct and Reconstruct this trope, in regards to Snow Halation.
    • The theme of The Nutshack becoming another staple Running Gag after the reboot saga has divided the fans. Some like it due to the repetitive, So Bad, It's Good nature of the theme and feel that it helps freshen the channel. Others dislike it for being yet another Forced Meme just like "Snow Halation", and/or that the joke just isn't funny. As a result of this, Nutshack-based rips tended to have a noticeable amount of dislikes, although not as much as "Snow Halation" rips did pre-reboot.
    • SiIva's sudden crusade against mashups being on the channel. Some fans support his decision, as they feel that mashups are a cheap way of incorporating memes and remixing and that In the Style of... soundfont remixes are preferable. Others are decrying it as SiIva unreasonably limiting the content allowed on the channel, given that many well-received rips on the channel are mashups.
    • On a related note, Mr. Rental's killing spree against said mashups. Some are upset that Mr. Rental shooting the mashups deletes the originalnote , while others are just playing along.
    • Green de la Bean got this once it was Running Gagged. Some were glad it was gone, while others thought it wasn't as bad as they'd thought and wanted it back.
    • Related to this was the channel's reaction: changing the banner to honor the Bean's demise, then posting a metric ton of Stylistic Suck rips of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.note  Some people saw this as hilarious and remarked that people were wrong to get so angry over a meme, while others believed it made the SiIvaGunner team look petty and deprived them of actually good rips. It intensified once SiIva began outright blaming the fans for it; some agreed that flagging the videos was too much, others thought it was partially their fault and that they were acting childish, and a few others agreed with the latter, but still thought that flagging them was going too far on the fans' part.
    • The exact same thing occurred when a number of now-deleted rips on September 11th featured jokes relating to what you'd expect. Not helping was that a couple of team members rather overtly insulted anyone that disagreed, furthering the divide (especially considering that this was during the bean debacle).
    • The channel's return during Halloween, due to it happening so soon after the channel's closure.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 and *ahem* low quality didn't help; some found them ironically hilarious, others an insult to injury. Due to the lack of these factors, the later Christmas event was much more universally well-received.
    • There are also divided opinions about the channel's Spiritual Successor, TimmyTurnersGrandDad. Is it a channel worthy of being called one, or is it just a cheap knock-off that's trying too hard to imitate the original?note 
    • AMUNO has become this during the "Christmas" Comeback Crisis after it very abruptly became one of the main memes of the channel. Its fans claim that its bizarreness adds to its hilarity and that the crude humor is some of the channel's best, whereas its detractors claim that it's defeating the point of the channel by not even being music and/or that they're all too similar and not individually funny. Notably, for now at least, the fans and haters seem to be roughly evenly split judging by the like bar on this video.
    • The Inspector Gadget rips are starting to get some flak by the community due to being a Forced Meme and being repetitively included in every rip since Gadget's takeover, leading to a slight reduction in the channel's subscription numbers. Others liked them due to bringing back the nostalgia from the channel's beginning, when almost every rip included the Flinstones theme. The fact that the rips suddenly ended after 2 weeks implies that this was likely intentional.
  • 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.
    • 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:
    • The GameCube Startup music video. Originally released on the day before the original channel was terminated, it was the highest viewed video on the revival channel by a large margin for a long time before being overtaken by a rip of "We Are Number One".
    • DK Rap rips tend to be some of the most popular and well-received rips of the whole channel, with some of the more recent ones surpassing 100k views.
    • Despite only appearing in a few rips, Chad Warden quickly managed to become one, due to him calling out a part of the fanbase for their hypocrisy and double-standards towards Snow Halation. Him playing a vital role in the reboot arc and his Dying Moment of Awesome don't hurt matters either, and while his death has stuck, many hope that he'll be back one day.
    • "We Are Number One" has become one of the most well-received memes on the channel by the fandom despite being fairly minor. A lot of fans wish it would become a proper staple meme. SiIva seems to be listening.
    • Wood Man rips have also become fairly popular, due to their So Bad, It's Good nature.
    • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon rips are quite scarce but are almost always well beloved.
    • L.A.M.A.J and ERIOIOIRE only had a few sporadic appearances, but fans love them because of the sheer absurdity of their designs and the "who would win?" debates surrounding them.
    • Usually you can expect this to happen to Cult Classic and Nostalgic games as well, but the PaRappa the Rapper rips are seen as some of the channel's best.
    • 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.
  • 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 
  • 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 would The Voice Inside Your Head want to destroy all anime? Wasn't he someone who tried to cause a reboot before? And then it hits you: What was the thing that struck the fans the MOST? The removal of Snow Halation during the first ARG. As such, now that The Voice is a Figment, he's doing what the fans perceive him doing the most: Removing anime, like Snow Halation.
    • Another one, involving The Voice: Why haven't we seen much Grand Dad, Snow Halation, Loud Niagra, etc? Think about it... First episode of "Christmas Crisis", most memes are captured, and Nozomi, of Snow Halation, is hiding. Now... why would the songs with those memes play, if they were captured/hiding?
    • Heck, what, if Figments that are more well known are used, perhaps the same is with Si Iva's channel? He was well-known, so he's burst far past his expiration date!
  • Fridge Logic: Even though "Slider" is most ripped song on the channel, and is often accociated it, the actual GilvaSunnner channel lists the song as just "Slide". Though, in thier defense, "Slider" is indeed the track's official name.
  • "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.
    • The final rip uploaded during the Grinch takeover was 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 the "Funny Aneurysm" Moment remains.
  • 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 Simpsons replacing The Flintstones in the reboot makes sense, considering that The Flintstones was the first prime-time animated TV series, and The Simpsons was one of the most successful. (It also has a number of Shout Outs to The Flintstones, of course.)
    • In contrast to the Running Gags, some of the jokes are pretty damn obscure and take some effort to figure out.
    • "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 due to his recent high-profile struggles with mental health. Already tragic enough, but gets much worse in light of his suicide in June 2019.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • The channel started when Undertale was still very popular. Naturally, the game's many leitmotifs were used in rips a lot, and many rips of that game were made as well, to the point where it's the most ripped game on the entire channel and they have a rule against submitting Undertale songs that have been ripped before. But nowadays, the fact that Undertale was so popular on the channel is amusing when you consider Main Theme - Undertale, which seems to be making fun of the game's former popularity and the fan creations that came from it by giving one of them a Gag Dub/Gag Sub.
    • SiIva spends the near-entirety of Main Theme - Ubisoft E3 Conference 2016 demanding "Give me Beyond Good & Evil 2". A year later, his demands were answered.
    • "Scherzo di Notte", which uses the Family Guy theme, became this when one of Kingdom Hearts' parent companies, Disney, bought out Family Guy's parent company, Fox. It could also be a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment for those that don't like Disney.
    • This rip of Gone Home, a game that prominently features a queer romance, is primarily occupied by a distorted version of "Complicated" while two guys in speedos wrestle. The rip is then cut off with a Snow Halation remix featuring Nozomi (which is unofficially her Birthday Halation rip, as it was uploaded around her birthday). Two years and one day later, the channel holds an entire day of gay-themed rips in lieu of doing something for Nozomi's birthday.
    • This rip of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers gets cut off by the sound made by the Morphin Brace (from Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters) and the theme song from said show, in what some believe was a Take That! towards Saban for skipping it. A year and a half later, it's announced that Gobusters is being adapted in the form of Power Rangers: Beast Morphers.
    • This rip of Splatoon is mashed up with October by DeadMau5. Two years later, the sequel, Splatoon 2 would have the Octo Expansion stages composed in-universe by a character named Dedf1sh, which references the same DJ.
  • 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: The rip of "Unknown from ME" (OST Version) have rather explicit edits about Knuckles lusting after Sonic.
  • 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 Loser: Every time anime and/or idol music shows up on the channel after the Christmas Comeback, there will inevitably be comments on 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 
    • The Green de la Bean rips quickly became this, with early viewers not knowing what was in store for them.
  • Replacement Scrappy:
    • While "Snow Halation" had been liked and hated in equal measure, opinions on "Go My Way" seemed to be that it just wasn't as memorable, for better or worse.
    • The Simpsons theme is this to The Flintstones theme, as several of the rips that use the Simpsons theme have been disliked bombed.
  • 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.
    • 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 it's not uncommon to see Snow Halation rips with a higher dislike count than other videos.
    • 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 has slowly started to become this. While at first it wasn't particularly disliked, as time's gone on since its introduction, more and more dislikes have gone 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 probably intentional though.
    • Now we have Bowflex rips which, 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's hated to the point where one of the rips got flagged, promptly resulting in the rest of the bean rips being deleted.
      • According to a Reddit AMA, it turns out that the same crew member, Le Ruse Bird, was both responsible for Green de la Bean and the infamous Puzzle Room rip. This ultimately makes him a Scrappy for the channel, and apparently for some of the other crew members as well who didn't find either of these jokes funny.
    • 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, and appropriately enough became inserted into almost every alternate rip till the KFAD prep season began, and still occasionally appears even 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 just for the backlash.
  • 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 Simpsons theme, or the Family Guy theme the same way again.
    • Following the Harlequin Baby incident, SiIva's fans now associate the Kirby: Planet Robobot track "Problem Solver" (titled "Puzzle Room" in the rip) with the sight of a baby with Harlequin Icthyosis, if the comments on unaltered "Problem Solver" 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.
  • Special Effect Failure: This rip uses the Kidz Bop version of Hotline Bling with the pitch lowered to make it seem like it's the original version. It seems the editor accidentally lowered the pitch of the other song it's a mashup of in the process.
  • Spiritual Successor: As a reference to the original GilvaSunner, TimmyTurnersGrandDad is currently regarded as the spiritual successor of the channel.
  • 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 without permission from the rest of the group. 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.
  • 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.
