YMMV / Two Saiyans Play

Go To

  • Broken Base: Gohan's actions when he tricked Goku into playing Inside. Fans are split as to whether his actions are warranted given what he's been through, or if Gohan is being needlessly cruel, especially since some of the things he's blamed Goku aren't even Goku's fault.
  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • Most of the stuff Vegeta and Nappa do, due to being violent former Planet Looters.
    • The 'Corpse Balcony' joke. The fact he remains committed to the joke for THAT long makes it hilarious.

    • Seeing as how most of this is improv from Takahata101 and Lanipator, it's no suprise as it would be hard for Taka to act like the brain dead moron Nappa is at every moment.
    • A less extreme example is Krillin, who's much smarter than he is in Dragon Ball Z Abridged, especially in Dead Space where he learns from his mistakes.
  • Fridge Horror: Nappa accidentally revealing his slight drug addiction. If it affects a Saiyan that badly, imagine what it could do to a human.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: While playing Five Nights at Freddy's, Vegeta tells Phone Guy to go to Hell at the start of Night 2. Night 4 reveals Phone Guy ran out of power and was killed by Freddy in the middle of his recording, followed by later information implying that he's done something bad enough to earn him a spot in Hell.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • While playing Among the Sleep, Krillin says "Whatever's going on, my tiny baby brain can't handle it!" after an Interface Screw moment. Given The Reveal at the end of the game, he's accidentally right.

    • When Gokū's looking at the family finances in Papers, Please, he notices an indicator that the player character's mother-in-law is secure, then notes that he doesn't know anything about Chi-Chi's mom. According to Daizenshuu 7, she died of illness the same year that Chi-Chi was born.
    • Gokū playing Gang Beasts freaks over dying repeatedly, and Gohan says Goku won't die anytime soon. Anybody familiar with the Cell saga's ending knows otherwise.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Vegeta's line when Nappa asks where he is in Portal 2: "I am everywhere."
    • When Nappa plays Five Nights at Freddy's 2, he says he's doing it to look for movie ideas. There's now gonna be a Five Nights at Freddy's movie.
    • Vegeta asks if there are yetis in Far Cry 4. Later, the Valley of the Yetis DLC was released.
    • The comparison of how Goku and Vegeta played Undertale is rather revelant in light of the recent episodes of Super, where Vegeta has his mind more on his family and Goku, out of boredom, basically caused a tournament with the universe's survival as the prize.

    • The fact that Vegeta plays Detroit: Become Human as all three main characters, including Kara. The voice actress who dubs Kara in the Latin American Spanish dub of the game, Andrea Orozco, later went on to dub Caulifla in Super.
  • Ho Yay:
    • During Shadow of Mordor, Nappa claims Vegeta's Orc-killing moves are turning him on.
    • He calls Vegeta's Monk character "sexy" in Diablo III.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Vegeta on very rare occasions. Watching him play The Stanley Parable, it's kinda hard not to sympathise with him, even if he does often deserve what's coming to him.
    • His playthrough of Undertale also counts. He lets slip he hasn't had a room or bed of his own since he was a kid, is baffled at being given a slice of pie and quits the game after killing Toriel, and you can hear him sobbing after she dies.
  • Memetic Badass: Kyle Kyleson from the Chivalry: Medieval Warfare video.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Arguably, Inside was this to Gohan. He convinces his father Goku to play the game with the incentive of muffins and pigs, only to find horrors around each and every corner, being chased around by dogs, being shot at, finding numerous dead pigs and even being forced to jump inside a pile of dead pigs, which causes him to cry in a corner in sorrow. And because he wanted to know what was inside. People either found it cathartic considering Goku's Parental Abandonment or people, who excused Goku's abandonment because of being a Manchild or thought that he was beginning to be a good dad, see it as heartwrenching and see Gohan as an irredeemable JerkAss, even saying that his upcoming fight with Cell was deserved.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Krillin plays some legitimately scary games:
    • In the Slender: The Arrival playthrough, Mr. Popo shows up in the game.
    • Krillin is really scared by this game; at one point he was so scared at something that Lanipator's regular voice broke through.
    • He was more in character here but Episode 17 of 'Outlast' is certainly the scariest.
      • Possibly topped with his confrontation with Eddie Gluskin in Outlast Whistleblower.
    • Krillin and Nappa's playthrough of P.T. is horrifying in a Mind Screw, Nothing Is Scarier way. Special mention goes to the fetus in the sink. Makes sense, since it's the Playable Teaser for Silent Hills.
    • In the playthrough for "Alien: Isolation", Krillin spends the whole of Part 10 hiding from the Alien, who seems to be cornering him at every turn. He then hides in one of the medical rooms, and gets frightened out of his wits by a skeleton model that looked like a xenomorph.
  • Nightmare Retardant:
    • Vegeta's playthrough of the first night of Five Nights at Freddy's ends up being a complete anticlimax since the animatronics never even go close to the office.
    • In part 5 of Krillin Plays Layers Of Fear there's a looping section where a baby doll comes running around the corner and smacks into the wall. Krillin ends up running through it at least half a dozen times like he's replaying a fail video, barely hiding his giggles and turning any horror and drama into slapstick comedy.
  • Tear Jerker: Poor Krillin. His Heroic BSoD during his battle with the Leviathan in Dead Space counts; the Levianthan's impossible strength completely drains him of determination to the point where he doesn't care about the whole thing any more.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks!: Some fans have decried the series of being a shallow copy of Two Best Friends Play with just an in-character gimmick.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: When starting Outlast Whistleblower, Krillin notices the difficulty settings are Normal, Hard, Nightmare and Insane, but, sadly, Vegeta does not force him to play on a higher difficulty. Or, perhaps even Vegeta isn't that cruel.
  • The Woobie: Krillin is basically forced into playing scary video games, which goes as well as one would expect.
