YMMV / Sky Does Minecraft

Go To

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Husky's one-line cameo in "Hide and Seek #5":
    • Some of the cutaways during Sky's videos as well. Lampshaded in his "Skycraft" review:
    (TNT exploding everywhere) WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING?!
  • Bizarro Episode: "Sky's Easter".
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Jerome started appearing in Sky's videos fairly recently, compared to Deadlox and Jason, but he has quickly risen to become one of the funniest characters in the videos.
    • The same goes for MunchingBrotato, who has also started appearing regularly in Sky's videos, and has gotten a massive amount of positive feedback from the fans.
  • Gateway Series: This was pretty much inevitable, due to Sky being one of the most popular Minecraft Let's Players. Previously less well-known mini-games, mods, adventure or parkour maps and even other Let's Players gained popularity after Sky did a video about them.
    • One of the earliest examples is Bodil40's Epic Jump Map series.
  • Growing the Beard: Older videos are generally quieter and seemingly less "random" than current ones.

  • Hype Backlash: He's insanely popular in the Minecraft community, and most of his fans see him as the Sacred Cow. This has led to a sizable hatedom against him, especially from fans of other Minecraft LP'ers.
  • It's Popular, Now It Sucks!/They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Has gained this from ex-fans when the channel got an huge increase in subscriber count, and thus slowly made a shift from him merely playing with friends to becoming more gimmicky. Also, the increase in douchebaggery from Sky in the videos hasn't gone unnoticed.
    • Due to wanting to make his content more Lighter and Softer around late 2014 since he was going to be a father and understandably wanted to be a good rolemodel, his popularity capped off around little under than twelve million subscribers and fans began to move on. According to the man himself in his channel shutdown video in late 2017, he began to lose interest in gaming itself a couple of years before the announcement as well.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: For the fans, Sky's singing.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: In a non-romantic way at least, though the shippers may think otherwise. The server that Sky and HuskyMudkipz do their Guild series co-op on is literally named SkyKipz.

  • The Scrappy: When Sky's IRL friend KermitPlaysMC was added to the crew, a large amount of fans voiced their dislike for him. This eventually died out when Kermit left Team Crafted, and thus mostly stopped recording with Sky and Co. altogether.
  • Shipping: ''Skylox''. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds likenote . There's a Tumblr group devoted to them, and there are a lot of fanfics and fanart out there about the pairing.
    • It's tied for the most popular ship for Team Crafted on Tumblr with Meromenote .
  • Ship Tease: Ever since Sky and Co. found out about people shipping them, they have been intentionally inserting more Ho Yay moments and Double Entendres in their vids. Cue the shippers Squeeing.
  • Shocking Swerve: After Sky questions Squid's dream of being a supermodel in the Anti-Plant Virus mod, Squid goes ballistic.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Sky and Dawn breaking up. Though the circumstances are unknown and a private matter, for the younger fans, it was sad that Dawn never appeared again in the videos as well as her social media pages suddenly deleted one day (that at the time, she had made recently to connect with fans), with Dawn eventually being replaced by Elesa on Sky's YouTube banner. But on the other hand, at least the the parties involved are doing what is best for each other instead of being stuck in a negative relationship.

    • Sky/Adam and Alesa breaking up in 2017 due to drama that you will have to look elsewhere for information on. As interviews by Keemstar/DramaAlert show, the entire ordeal has taken an toll on Sky/Adam's mental health.
    • Sky/Adam announcing that he has been at discontent with playing Minecraft and video games, deciding to move on and start a rap career under a new channel, NetNobody. According to his interview on DramaAlert, it was in part due to said drama with Alesa and being unhappy with the recent Minecraft/video gaming community. Of course, we are supportive of his desire to move forward, it's just sad that the old days have come and gone now after about five years of SkyDoesMinecraft.
      • His decision to private all his videos on New Year's of 2018.
