  • All of Linkara's William Shatner impressions:

    • "While I've got them, let me tell them about the...incredible...offers from Priceline.com."

Newmen #1

  • "I guess if I was the only one to believe in Bubblegum Hinduism, I'd be a little off in the head too."
  • Linkara's disregard of a "tormented" rant:

Linkara: Oh, boo-hoo, We've all got problems!

Amazons Attack

  • Linkara reviews Amazons Attack: "Hello, Doom's IV? I'm sorry. I want you back!" And completely snapping under the realization that the whole thing was just a tie-in to Countdown. "Look at the pretty bunny! (breaks down crying)"
    • In part two, when he does his trademark "I am a MAN!" and punches off screen. His hand inexplicably returns holding a teddy bear, causing him to announce "Bear!" in an ecstatic voice.
    • As well as Linkara trying to cut his wrists with a gun. "Why doesn't it work?!" In fact, the entirety of his spaz-out.

Linkara: [waving around bunny statue] Look at the pretty bunny, look at the pretty bunny! [breaks down crying]

    • After he decides burying his face in a pillow is preferable to going on: "And yet somehow this is still more entertaining than the comic itself."
    • Also, this exchange:

Aide in comic: D.C. is in ruins.

Linkara: I'm sure it is, after this comic.

    • Or:

President: Yes! I killed a teenage girl! Why do other politicians seem to have so much trouble with it?

    • Bees. My God.
      • "Can someone please tell me what emotion Batman is expressing with that line? Confusion? Irony? Sadness? Anger? Acceptance? Disgust? Surprise? Anticipation? Contempt? Awe? Disappointment? Shame? Sympathy? Rage?! Oh, wait, that's me. Agony? Frustration? Apathy? It's apathy, isn't it? (Sighs) OK, you don't care, Batman, so we don't either."
    • The plot breaking Pollo.
    • "Yee-haw! Early retahment!"
    • In his last Amazons Attack video, his musical Shout-Out to a certain drum-loving |nutcase while mocking one of Circe's hammy Info Dumps.
    • Linkara's response when Circe says that she used a piece of her soul in the resurrection of Hyppolita to turn her evil

Top 15 Worst Heroes Becoming Villains

Daredevil #306

Linkara: Hey, kids! Remember, when you're about to engage a deadly foe, be sure to shout their last name before falling down at them. We saw this technique briefly, during Mr. T and the T-Force, but it's good to see another demonstration here. [Falls down from the ceiling] Kutter!

    • The blooper at the end of the review:

Nostalgia Chick: "And you're too late to stop the bomb... in my pants."

Wolverine: Adamantium Rage

  • Later, Linkara tries his hands of videogame in Wolverine: Adamantium Rage. Mid-way, he starts going batshit, using a variation his "I AM A MAN!" * punch* gag, with replacing the quote with "ADAMANTIUM RAGE!". He knocks Spoony out, and pretty much everything else... until he met The Angry Video Game Nerd.

Linkara: ADAMANTIUM RAGE!!!
AVGN: * punches Linkara in the face*

    • And later, Linkara encounters Doctor Insano, and believes he's figured out his true identity.

Linkara: Wait a second!....You're That Chick With The Goggles!
Insano: ....I'm not fricking black!
Linkara: But you are a woman?

    • At one point Linkara gets so frustrated that he decides to resort to cheat codes, upon which Spoony, who had up until then been sitting in the background playing a DS, calls him a wimp, so Linkara gives him a go. Spoony is gradually driven insane and tries to strangle himself with the laptop's power cord, finally resulting in this:

Spoony: Fine, you can use the fuckin' cheats!

      • CHEAT CODES ARE STILL ENABLED
    • "I heard that, Linkara."
    • At the end of the review he says "This game sucks!" as he holds up one hand as though it's holding a real object. It's funny because it's not a comic, and it's funny because he doesn't actually own a physical copy of the game; he was using an emulator. But force of habit made him do the hand gesture anyway.
    • "Brother, not mother. Idiot."

Warrior #1

  • Pretty much the entirety of Linkara and Spoony's review of Warrior #1, a comic so absolutely horrible that Dr. Insano used it to shatter space-time, resulting in the review occurring over the course of multiple weird alternate universes, including ones where Linkara and Spoony switch places, where Spoony has Benzaie's hair and Linkara has Angry Joe's beard, one where Linkara and Spoony are teddy bears, another where Linkara and Spoony can't act and have to read directly from the script, and one where there's this psychotic fusion of Linkara, Insano, and Chester A. Bum.
    • Also, the constant, horrible abuse of the ellipses, culminating in:

Nostalgia Critic: "STOP! USING! ELLIPSES!"

    • "He raped Santa!"
      • "Hold it! Nobody rapes Santa on our watch!"

Dr. Insan-Ohki: I'm adorable but alone.

    • "Oh, don't be so negative."
    • "Emperor Spoonus Maximus demands that one of these narrators be silent immediately. 'Tis most annoying, rather like listening to Socrates give his forum stand-up routine while attending a Senate meeting."
    • Having some Fun with Subtitles with the Ultimate Warrior's promos, HOAK HOGAN!
    • This exchange:

Linksano: (laughs evilly) It worked! My hypertime destabilization experiment was a complete success! {{[[[Beat]] beat}}] Well, sort of, my hair's a different color.
Linkara!Spoony: Doctor Insano!
Linksano: OF COURSE! Who else but I could create a dimensional rift in the fabric of hypertime? Now all your continuities, are belong to me!

New Guardians #2

  • Everything having to do with Snowflame in his New Guardians review.

Snowflame: I am SNOWFLAME! Every cell of my being burns with white-hot ecstasy! COCAINE IS MY GOD AND I AM THE HUMAN INSTRUMENT OF ITS WILL!"
Linkara: (befuddled look) Ladies and gentlemen, I can say without a hint of irony that is the crackiest thing I have ever seen in a comic, and I've seen Jetpack Hitler and ancient Kandarian book being used as toilet paper by zombie superheros! In fact, that statement is so bloody ridiculous, insane, and bad, that it's freaking awesome! Snowflame, the man powered by cocaine, is win of the highest level!

  • "How dare our enemy not be impressed with repeated punching! We worked really hard on that!"

Countdown to Final Crisis

  • Forager taking off with Jimmy Olsen, sans pants, and Linkara's awkward response thereto.
  • "COUNTDOWN, STOP KILLING EVERYONE!"

Linkara: [The editors of Countdown] wanted to introduce a love triangle between Donna [Troy], Kyle [Rayner] and Jason [Todd].
(awkward pause)

Linkara: F--

(Cue the "Route 1" track from Pokémon, while a title card reading "Inaudible Profanity. Please stand by" covers the screen)

Linkara: (waving his gun around haphazardly) ...AND ROLL OVER THEIR FETID CARCASSES FOR THAT IDIOTIC IDEA!!. So, back to our story...

  • The entire "Previously On" segment to the second part of the Countdown review. Whoever decided to have the BUM, of all people, control all the world's nukes was having a very good brain day.
    • What made that whole segment, though, was the fact that it was a string of unconnected plots that had nothing to do with each other. It was extremely convoluted as well. And after all of that, the "Previous On" segment is capped with "And that whole thing STILL made more sense than Countdown!"
  • "Damn it, Donna, stop pointing out the Plot Holes; that's my job!"
  • "This comic book is Re-Todded."

Cable #1

  • In Linkara's Cable #1 review, after the latest indication of the evil to come from ancient Egypt, he cuts to a picture of the pyramids with the Imperial March playing.
    • And at the end of that review, he's interrupted in his final diatribe of "this comic sucks!" when Linkara-as-Cable bursts in demanding an explanation. Linkara throws a magnet at him to defeat him, then picks up Cable's gun and says "Sweet! New gun!"
    • And, after a particularly convoluted series of flashbacks: LET'S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!

Batman: Fortunate Son

  • During Linkara's Batman: Fortunate Son review, he flips out and rants about how people who overuse the term 'selling out' are a bunch of naive idiots. This doubles as a Crowning Moment of Awesome as well.
    • "Punk is nothing but death...and crime...and the rage of a beast."
    • While critiquing the art, he proclaims "I mean, it's about as convincing as this!" while dressed in the absolute worst Batman outfit ever.
    • It Makes Sense in Context:

Batman (yes, the Batman): Like... pigs... From a gun!

Linkara (Beat) What the Funk 'n Wagnal does that mean?!

    • Linkara reading Crowe's lines with his Superboy Prime voice.
    • "Lot's of people see things when they're on drugs! When I'm on drugs, I see Bea Arthur!" *beat* "You should probably forget I said that."
    • Review Cigarettes! A review in every puff! This comic sucks.
    • *picture of Robin looking like an old man* "Gah! What's wrong with Robin?! Batman, do something!" *picture of Batman looking very Off-Model* "Bwahahahaha, oh thanks Bruce, I needed that."

Air Raiders #1

  • While reading Air Raiders, Linkara comes across the phrase "great disaster" and freaks out over Countdown to Final Crisis again. He runs off, only to walk back onscreen and say "I knew I should have put a window there."
    • "Um, look, guys, I think Spaceballs was joking about that "canned air" thing..."

Nightcat #1

Mickey Mantle #2

  • "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. Woo woo woo!"
  • "Minnesota once again here to save the day... MINNESOTA!"
  • After the final hit by Mickey Mantle, as the triumphant music plays: "WOW! He did it! He hit the ball! He did it! They held the tension for all of one splash page! They did it! And I still don't care!

Adventures of the Kool-Aid Man #1

Silent Hill: Dying Inside

  • His reaction to an unknown assailant interrupting the painfully annoying villain with a baseball bat: "It's Mickey Mantle! He's come to save us!"
  • Linkara doing his own parody of Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle Of The Flesh. That is all.
    • "Damn it, Insano! Stop goofing around for two seconds and put Spoony on the phone!"
  • In the "Worst Ending" from the Silent Hill Alt Endings video, Linkara gets stuck in Phantasmagoria 2 and tries calling several numbers for help. 90s kid has an... interesting answering machine, Batman rants at him about rock music, and his call to Spoony gets Dr. Insano instead.
    • The "UFO Ending," which features "Fly Me to the Moon"... sung by Harvey Finevoice. (The inevitable Evangelion flashbacks just make it even more hysterical) And then the credits get to the stinger text at the end, which is usually just a sentence or two, but this time is several paragraphs of ranting about the Fridge Logic inherent in the premise of Silent Hill 4.
  • His parody of the Silent Hill 2 opening in the Dying Inside review. Especially 90's Kid as Maria and Pollo as Laura.

Maximum Clonage

  • His one year anniversary review of The Clone Saga is one of these:
    • His musical renditions of padding.
    • When seeing Spidercyde's outfit he just starts laughing: "Perhaps the Jackal left his cloning tube in the sun too long."
    • After revealing that it was originally planned for Mephisto to be behind the clone saga: "But the writers decided that Mephisto had absolutely no place in the Spider-Man universe. Yeah, hindsight's a bitch."
    • "Do a little dance... make a little clone... get down tonight!"
    • "The man responsible for our genetic future, ladies and gentlemen, with all the charm and personality of a 9-year old."
    • "By Diehard's Crotch what is up with that lady's face!?", "You guys look like bratz dolls if they grew up!"
    • His Voice for the Jackal that sounds like The Monarch
    • This little gem:

Peter Parker: Should I really trust a jackal?
Linkara: I don't know, Peter, maybe I should- (Pulls out a cane) HIT YOU WITH MY CLUE-STICK! (proceeds to hit the screen)

    • His psychotic breakdown due to the final issue.
    • "I see the way you're acting like somebody else gets me frustrated."
  • From his review of Maximum Clonage., after Jackal "decides to do a little dance"

Linkara: (singing) Do a little dance... make a little clone... get down tonight!

    • After Punisher claims to be able to shoot Jackal through Spider-Man and ends this claim with "I can, you know!"

Linkara: (as Punisher) I totally can! What, you don't believe me when I say I can? You don't think I can? (Beat, sad) Nobody thinks I'm cool anymore...!

      • Linkara's breakdown at the end:

Linkara: I AM THE WALRUS GOO GOO G'JOOB! * punch*

The Jackal WHEEEEEE!

22 Brides #1

  • "Yeah I'm a Bee Gees fan deal with it!"
    • What, no mention of this gem?: Linkara notices the lack of sense that Libby makes when she kicks a man in the nads, all with enough force to knock the rest of the gang over. Linkara says?

Linkara: Wow, let me see if I can do that! * puts comic down, gets up and tries to do so* * CRACK!* MY SPINE!

    • As the comic depicts villains surrounding heroes surrounding villains surrounding heroes, each Reveal is accompanied by an ever-higher-pitched Musical Sting.

All-Star Batman and Robin #1-2

  • Reading Frank Miller's descriptions of Vicki Vale, '90s Kid style. Complete with a caption assuring us that this is the actual script.
    • Crazy Steve, that is all.
    • Whenever he narrates the characters repeating the same sentence over and over again. Something about the way he says it leaves me dying.

"I'm on a date with Bruce Wayne!"

    • "You've been drafted into a war. And you had better not be a fan of rock and roll!"
    • The cover for Superhero Innuendo Monthly, featuring the headlines "Diehard and the reason we want him fighting crime for us!", "Hal Jordan's new look: Yay or nay?" and "This and every other issue: Penises!"
  • "I'm the goddamn Batman!" "Ladies and gentlemen, we have an internet meme!" (cue The Price Is Right theme)
  • This exchange:

Batman: Who the hell do I think I am?
Linkara: You're the goddamn — screw it, you knew where that was going.

Doom #1

  • Linkara doing another parody of the "Random shooting in the dark" gag from Alone in The Dark during his review of the Doom comic book complete with cameo appearances by Lanipator, the Nostalgia Critic, Nostalgia Chick, Marzgurl, Benzaie, Beary, Angry Joe, and various other members of TGWTG. Even MikeJ makes a game effort.
    • Bennett the Sage and his Nerf gun is the best part.
    • "I AM A MAN!" * PUNCH* "AND A HALF!" * PUNCH* * gets stuck halfway through*

Linkara: A little help here.

    • My personal favourite was Mike J part. He's looking at the others, cup of tea in a hand, then he sees the camera. His reaction?

"Oh, uh... bang, bang, bang... bang bang bang. Booom."

      • While holding the cup of tea like a gun, no less.
    • Beary shooting Lanipator.
    • Lin-Ku shooting Ed Glaser.

  • His impersonation of Dr. Frank N Furter in his "Bimbos In Time #1" review.
    • Linkara severely overthinks one character.

Linkara: "And she's the niece of Sherlock Holmes! ...Wait, does that mean Mycroft Holmes had a daughter? ...Why am I thinking about this?!?"

    • "And I am the walrus, koo koo ka-choo!"
    • Linkara repeatedly listening to music on his headphones to avoid having to read the comic.
    • Linkara's response to one of the comic's "attempts" at "humor"

Linkara: "I'm only on page FOUR. This comic is FORTY-EIGHT PAGES LONG. Expect a lot of crying in this episode."

    • Just the way he says "I had a dog named Ashley onec."
      • "By the way, this comic was a donation--AND I STILL FEEL LIKE I WAS RIPPED OFF!"

The Dark Knight Strikes Again Part 1

  • Ninja-Style Dancer doing the Caramelldansen dance in Linkara's The Dark Knight Strikes Again part 1 review. Also:

"It's about to blow"
"It already does."

  • When discussing how Frank Miller fans are likely to respond to his points, he borrows Yahtzee's style for a moment:

"Linkara, you handsome but completely inept dickweed!"

Extreme Super Christmas Special #1

James Bond Jr. #3

  • Saying all of James Bond Jr.'s lines in a Sean Connery impression just to make them sound even more ridiculous.
    • And then there's Linkara wondering why James Bond's nephew is called James Bond Jr.
    • "Getting shipped to Peru in a tank does seem a bit far-fetched." "Geez, you know it's bad when the characters admit that the premise is weak."
    • "Wow! Grass! We don't have anything like that outside the woods."
    • "The James Bond Jr. Show will be right back after this ad for expensive crap you don't need."
    • "Russian? French? German? Tommy Wiseau?"

Top 15 Missed Opportunities of AT 4 W

Letters column: "Instead of having [superpowers], Mr. T uses his head to get himself out of tricky situations!"
Linkara: "Hmhmhmhmhmmmmmm!" * fingersnap* * Montage of the "Mr. T superpower count" from the original review incrementing*

      • POWERHOUSE EXCITEMENT!!!
    • "In the weather today, a cold front is moving in through the north and generally making things unpleasant. In other news, celebrities embarrass themselves by their utter incompetence when it comes to their sex lives and, somehow, gossip about rich people qualifies as news you need to be concerned with. In the world of sports…" * thud*
    • "Bees, my God." "NO, NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES! AAAAAAH!
    • His mourning version of convoy.
    • After seeing a giant hologram of the Jackal's head: "I'm busy finding 5 teenagers with attitude!"
    • A Jeff Foxworthy-style redneck one-liner in response to the redneck communists of Sinnamon.

    • "No! Less! Less! Less!"

Star Trek/X-Men #1

  • His 30-second summary of the second Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before"- "I AM THE GOD! I AM THE GOD!"
    • "Watch me move this Styrofoam cup!" * cup moves with a humming noise* "ISN'T THAT AWESOME?!"
    • Or this exchange:

Dehner: So what if he's got godlike powers? Maybe he's really nice and having godline powers will help the species and he WON'T try to take over the universe!

Kirk: Lady, you've just totally reinvented stupid.

    • From that same review, Pollo in a hilariously oversized Starfleet uniform, singing the "Star Trekkin'" song.

  • In part 2, when Kyle is still wangsting about the loss of his powers:

Kyle: Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Neighbor: Shut up! We're trying to sleep! Go whine about your superpowers somewhere else!

    • Linkara punching the comic.
    • In response to Lois leaving Superman after he loses his powers:

Linkara: (to the continuity alarm) Are you going to shut me down for this?
Continuity Alarm: *Nah, I'm gonna sit this one out.*
Linkara: (deep breath) "BUUUUUULLLLLLLL. CRAAAAAAAAAAAAP!" (goes on long rant about the nature of Clark Kent and his relationship with Lois to demonstrate just how bad the Character Derailment is)

    • "Were we too arrogant, Clark-" "NO. YOU WEREN'T. SHUT UP."
    • "Just look at Superman here, trying to seal that dam. You can just tell that he's thinking 'Hot damn, it's awesome to be exalted by humanity. I feel just like God. Maybe I should let this dam burst just to spite them all!'"
    • "I have Booster Gold's entire first series in my hand, and I assure you he didn't save Ronald Reagan's life just for cash! ...Though it did help."

      • Leading to another funny moment: his near insanity thanks to Dr. Linksano's "Black Light Event Generator".
    • The reaction to seeing Wonder Woman praying to the Christian god, despite the facts that her whole origin story is heavily based on the Greek mythology, and she frequently invokes the Greek pantheon.

Linkara: Y' know, this comic is actually quite the argument for Satan's existence!

TMNT Meets Archie

  • From his review of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles meet Archie - "Oh dear god, what the hell is up with the art!? No, seriously, what the hell is up with the art on the turtles?!? They look like they're melting!"

    • The shout-out to Kickassia happening that same week.

Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos #1

  • Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos #1: " That's why I printed this huuuuuuuuuuge picture of you. HATE YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!!!! * Beat* Marry me.
    • He comments on the logo of the comic with words "Chuck Norris" taking up a third of the page and on the superhero-like outfit of Chuck Norris. He continues with "Maybe I'm wrong.

Linkara: Well, that didn't take long.

    • When TM prays for something to save him from having to talk about the book he hasn't read - the Cult of the Klaw attack the school.

    • His comment on the use of "Bammo!" as an Unsound Effect.

Warrior 2-3

  • The reveal that Dr. Linksano is one of the Schlumper brothers from Spoony's Party Mania review.
    • Another moment of pure hilarity - "You're giving the slash ficcers material!" lampshading the Foe Yay that many will be pointing out.
      • Not to mention that in this universe, both Linkara and Spoony are Johnny from The Room. The outtakes take it even further, with both of them improvising further lines in-character after a mistake.
    • Pretty much all of the battle royale at the end, from the Robotic Grabby Thing Mark Two to Dr. Bearsano.
    • The Shout-Out to 1408.

"We've Only Just Begun" starts playing
Insano: Kill it! Keel et! Keel et! {Attacks radio}

    • Dr. Hulksano. This is all.
    • The review continues the proud tradition of random time-dimension crossover cameos... with a few twists.
      • Angry Joe rants angrily about the section he has just read, only to be revealed to be neither Linkara nor Insano. He just snuck in.

Angry Joe: My GOD this comic blows! I can't believe anyone let this thing see print, much less FOUR ISSUES of it!

Linkara: Joe, what the hell are you doing? I went to take a bathroom break for a minute, and now you're doing my review?

Angry Joe: (A few seconds of silence, followed by him throwing the comic away and running off)

      • Iron Liz asks everyone's immediate question. "Who the hell am I?"
    • This bit, with Spoony and Linkara's voices over the Nostalgia Chick and Marzgurl, respectively:

Nostalgia Chick/Spoony: Yeah, the slow ass route. (Pause) Hey, do I look weird to you?
Marzgurl/Linkara: No, just as masculine as ever.
Nostalgia Chick/Spoony: (promptly fondles hirself then feels her face)

    • Or this bit:

Linkara: Because as you know, Mr. Anderson, it is purpose that created us.

Dr. Insano: Purpose that connects us.

Nostalgia Chick: Purpose that pulls us.

Benzaie: That guides us.

Bhargo: That drives us.

Lord Kat: That defines.

Bennett the Sage: It is purpose that binds us.

Linkara: We're here because of you, Mr. Anderson, we're here to take from you-- (looks around) Wait, where the hell did you all come from?!

      • The outtakes reveal that it took a while for everyone to stop cracking up at Bennett popping up in the foreground and suddenly blocking out half the screen. Then they hit on the idea that his head in profile would be even funnier, and it starts all over again.
    • Dr. Linksano's attempt to explain how his universe is different from ours.

Dr. Linksano: For example, in my universe, Wayne Brady is black!
Spoony: He's black in this universe, too...
Dr. Linksano: Silence, you sad, silly bastard!

    • Dr. Bearsano: "I've done things I'm not proud of, but they were all very adorable."
    • There's also Linkara's "our hero, ladies and gentlemen" Running Gag. However, thanks to the dimension shifts, this line is instead delivered by Mechakara.
    • The Silent Movie universe, complete with black and white, piano, Antiquated Linguistics, and title cards to let you know what they just said.

Spoonkara: I say, dear boy, if the hues were incorrect in the starting collection, perhaps you should simply have stayed the course for the next one!
Dr. Linksano: By George, where IS that piano noodling coming from?

Spoonkara: And why do we seem to vanish after we open our mouths?

The Dark Knight Strikes Again Part 3

  • From The Dark Knight Strikes Again Part 3 there's: Linkara summoning a Battlizer and performing his "I AM A MAN!!" punch on the aforementioned comic, causing it so be set on fire.

Linkara: I told you I was saving it.

    • Not to mention Linkara's freakout leading to him creating "Beppo the Invisible Monkey" (while obviously disoriented).

Linkara: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY, FRANK?! WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS MINISERIES?! WHY ARE THEY MAKING ME REVIEW THIS?! (lunges for the camera) WHY?! SOMEBODY, SEND HELP! GAAAAAAAAAA--
(Feed cuts off; a "Please Stand By" screen displays for several seconds)

Linkara: (clothes and hat disheveled) You know, people often ask me how I can cope with such horrible comics...well, it's all thanks to the help of Beppo, the invisible monkey! (off to the side) Isn't that right, Beppo?

(Beat)

Linkara: (to the camera) Beppo says 'yes'".

    • Also worth noting is that Beppo is also a Shout-Out to Silver Age Superman's pet Kryptonian monkey.
    • Linkara: Hello and Welcome to Atop the Fourth Wall, where bad comics burn! Say... * Pulls out his pocket watch* It's Mill- * Gets up and tries to make a break for it*
    • In response to Miller naming a porn star to who takes up the name Big Barda "Hot Gates" in a reference to 300, Linkara plays the clip of Benzaie explaining that 300 is really about constipation while driving to film Kickassia just to show how great interpretation of symbolism is. Best. Take That. Ever.
    • "Back to the bottle." (chugs from a brown-bagged liquor bottle)
    • "So here's a video of a kitten instead!"
    • The Stinger at the end. "Eh, who are you people? Where's my soup? You want to see pictures of my grandchildren?"
    • Linkara saying that Frank Miller has "all the subtlety of an elephant singing Ave Maria while doing the can-can," just for the imagery.

Tandy Computer Whiz Kids: Fit to Win

  • In Tandy Computer Wiz Kids, the teacher asks her students what this great new enterprise is that will energize the economy like never before. Linkara gives a gleeful shout of "Prostitution!"
    • The appearances of Duke Nukem and Popeye.
    • The Stinger: DID YOU STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM?! YOU DID, YOU SONS OF BITCHES!
    • Him making fun of the blatant Product Placement: "Alec, why are you doing a commercial? I know all this, I BOUGHT it!"
    • He decides that the main characters are all undercover policemen.

Anita blake: The Laughing Corpse #1-2

  • Linkara doing Anita Blake: The Laughing Corpse as Harvey Finevoice. You'd think it gets old after a while, but...
    • "The kids were playing with Jell-O again!"
    • "No, that's a Barbie doll."

Freak Force #1

"90's Kid! He is a man! NO... wait, he is a kid! Uh, wait! Aren't I 90's Kid? Wh-Why am I talking about 90's Kid as if I'm not actually here?"

    • Also his alternate version of the normal second lines:

"Brodsky, you are a genius! Liefeld, you are my god! What's another word that rhymes with genius...?"

    • The voices he gives to the characters. Good Lord.
    • All of 90's Kid's complaints of the book.

"I believe they should add guns to the American flag."
"A redhead walks down the street wearing striped pants that kinda make her look mint flavored."
"Clearly he was pondering if it would be wise to add more pouches to his huge shoulder pads. For the record, the answer is CHA!!"
"Cha! Big red dudes go on top of the Christmas tree, not the fire escape."
"Whoa, this guy can make an Ace of Base album of out of old beer cans!"
"Dude, no ones' gonna take you serious with a name like Mighty Man! You should add "blood" to it! Or at least Strike. That's Stryke with a Y."

    • 90's Kid doing the comic's sound effects.
    • When 90's Kid gets bored and decides to play Justice League Task Force on his Megadrive instead, the fact that the cartridge that was previously in was Shaq Fu. (And in the credits, Linkara says he owns two copies).
      • It gets better: He plays the game on the highest difficulty because it's "Hard Core" and then gets curb stomped... and promptly gets curb stomped again and proclaims the game awesome.
      • And in lieu of an ending 90's kid just keeps playing. and according to Pollo it just goes on like that for an hour.
    • The look of sheer shock and horror at 90's Kid's performance that Harvey Finevoice gives is absolutely hysterical as he asks Pollo what he was thinking asking 90s Kid to do the show and can he take over next week, please.
    • It's a cliche to call something a "Crowning X Of Awesome", but in this case it's true. 90s Kid's appearances are usually Crowning Moments Of Funny on their own, so giving him A Day in the Limelight makes the whole episode a Crowning Episode Of Awesome.

I am silent as the ballerina.

Iron Liz: Cool! That means they can blow up!

Linkara: I know!

    • Linkara and Liz go through a whole triumphant post-battle ending scene, complete with Police Squad! style freeze-frame gag... then realize they still have to review the second half of the comic.
      • Best part? They're just holding still. They hold that pose for 20 seconds with those goofy expressions.
    • Pollo asking Harvey Finevoice if he ever lights up his cigarette at all.
    • Liz doing a happy victory dance to the Ewok celebration song from Return of the Jedi... as a confused Linkara looks on.

  • From California Raisins 3D: "I just said 'heroic raisin.' My dignity will never be the same again."

    • The female raisins. That is all.
    • His obsession with the Fridge Logic associated with the biology of living food products.

Ah, so here we're getting some details on the biology; when he was young, he was just a burger patty. If that's the case, then where did the buns come from- did they grow out of him like hair? If that's the case, then why are his eyes embedded in the bun?

    • "Now let's play some better music." * No music plays* "You can't hear it because it's in 3-D, wait."
    • After the raisins get a letter informing them about an anonymous gift of a mansion:

Linkara: P.S.: I am a Nigerian prince and I wish to send you my fortune.

    • So let's dig into Hardcore Station #1 and see if this place is that hardcore! * beat* Of course it isn't, what show do you think you're watching?
    • "So that dream I had where I was fighting evil alongside the Seventh Doctor on board the Enterprise was because I wanted a sandwich?"
    • "[...] and savor the end of your quest" Dun-dun-dun-DUN!

Brute Force #1

Kid: But Tastee Burgers are cool! Tastee Tony says so and he's neat.
Cyberman: There is logic in what he says.

    • Shortly followed by:

Doctor: But if they work for Flex, and Flex is clearing rain forests, then... that's where they've taken him!

Linkara: *shocked expression*

Cyberman: There is logic in what he s-

Linkara: NO THERE ISN'T!

Amazing Spider-Man: Skating on Thin Ice #1

  • In Spider-Man: Skating on Thin Ice, a literal interpretation of the phrase "alcohol abuse."
    • In reference to the cover, asking whether Spidey is a dealer and whether one of the drugs he's peddling is hydrochloric acid.

"I can't get the buzz without the burn, man!"

"Pff. My ideas were cooler."

    • "Wait, you're letting the kids have independent thought? What the hell kind of PSA is this?"
    • "Sneak into their bedrooms at night and loudly proclaim "HI! I'M SPIDERMAN AND I'M IN YOUR ROOM!"."
    • [extremely over-exaggerated dramatic reveal music] "OH MY GOD, HE HAS SWEETARTS!"
    • Linkara's Genre Savvy-ness.

Spiderman: That's a decision only you can make, but I want to help you make an informed decision. Interested?
Linkara: Oh, boy. He better not start singing...

    • Linkara's take on Spider-Man's explanation for his knowledge

Board Of Directors dude: ...Actually, we were going to ask you about the vending machines and the nutrition of your students... Spinning wheel of death you say?

90's Kid: Duuuude! I know how we can stop pollution! We can use guns! And shoot all the garbage!

Dr. Evil: "Sharks witth frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!"

New Kids on the Block #4

  • From his review of New Kids on the Block #4:
    • After learning that Mark Wahlberg was briefly in the New Kids on the Block: "For those of you unfamiliar with Mark Wahlberg, here's a movie he was in." (runs the "talking to a plastic plant" scene from The Happening).
    • Linkara's comment about him having the feeling that the artist alley at the New Kids convention would contain Yaoi/slash pictures of the New Kids members.
    • Linkara's reaction to New Kids Fan Girl Fanny Tweetersweet having a New Kids Toenail Analyzer:

Linkara: SECURITY!!!

    • -->Caption: Our stockings were hung by the CD machine, in hopes that ol' Santa would soon make the scene.

Linkara: That won't work, for you see, it's a tight fit - SANTA COMES DOWN CHIMNEYS, YOU BONEHEADED TWIT!

Linkara: Why are you talking? Everytime you talk, you only prove why you shouldn't.

Marvel Team-Up #127

  • Marvel Team-Up #127 - Comparing Spider-Man to Shinji Ikari. What really makes it funny is that Linkara isn't exactly known for being an Otaku, so this just seems to come out of nowhere.
    • Linkara suggesting that Bette and her roommate were celebrating the holiday season by offering cocaine to their own god: Snowflame.

Linkara!Snowflame: Snowflame feels no pain.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Top 15 Screw-Ups of AT 4 W

Douchey: Wait, how'd you find me?
Linkara: What is it about magic you people don't understand?!

  • Referencing Sci Spy as a non-superhero comic, then realizing that the comic he's holding is a trade.

Linkara: Somebody collected SCI-SPY? *Beat* We'll get back to Sci-Spy next year.

  • Said to Douchey: "So by swearing, I'd look as mature as you do, huh?" It actually confuses Douchey enough that he's silent until the end of the review.
  • Regarding his Minnesota accent: "There are traces here and there, particularly when I say 'rum' or 'ruf'. It's just the way it is, and it isn't gonna change unless I spend every day saying ryoooooom and ryoooooof."


2011 Episodes

Cry For Justice #1-2

    • "Hey, we should start a band!"
    • Issue 1 begins with Hal Jordan saying he has a confession to make. Linkara's response:

"I'm pregnant!" *cue suspenseful music*

Cry For Justice #3-4

  • Then, in Cry for Justice #3-4
    • "Nope. Explosions do not work that way. Not buying it." He then points out that the kind of faulty logic that lead into it sounds like a ten-year-old's attempt at screenwriting, followed by him imitating said ten-year-old.
    • "My God... a giant intelligent gorilla and an alien are about to fight robots on jetpacks. Why is this story not about them?!?" He then sets the resulting fight scene to "Ride of the Valkyries".
    • When Prometheus says he wants revenge "on the superhero community as a whole," Linkara immediately and dryly says "Why?"

Power Rangers Zeo #1

  • Linkara's White Zeo Ranger outfit, aka "Pimpkara", first seen in Power Rangers Zeo #1. Yes, it does look awesome, but admit it - you laughed when you first saw it.
    • Huh... in my head, I thought he looked more like a rapper-wannabe... eh, to each his own.
    • I thought he looked like Michael Jackson.
      • The really hilarious part is that, from the neck down, he was totally dressed as a Ranger. But instead of a helmet he had his hat only in white, so yeah, the hat morphs too, apparently.
        • So does his jacket.
  • Linkara trotting out Neutro, stolen from Insano...only to discover that the "cockpit" control panel is a NES controller that Pollo wired into the system.

Linkara: Pollo, this is an NES Advantage!
Pollo: I got busy and never finished it.
Linkara: What do I pay you for again?!

Narrator: After a quick journey...
Linkara: Yeah, "quick" doesn't even begin to cover that, considering they traveled to ANOTHER GALAXY!

  • In the live Atari Force review: "Here they come up with new ways for the Jaguar CD to not work."
    • The Situation: A World in Crisis.

Linkara: Early reviews of E.T. for the Atari 2600 just came out.

    • Linkara's various names for Commander Martin Champion a la Mike and the ‘Bots’ many names for Reb Brown's character in Space Mutiny.
    • This bit involving Linkara and an audience member responding to one of his jokes:

Mission Control: I am ordering you to -- SKWAARK
Linkara: Did Mission Control just get attacked by zombies?
Audience Member: No, it's the Ultimate Warrior.
Linkara: No, no. That's a Skronk.
Audience Member: It's the distant future of 2005. Maybe it changes.
Linkara: Ah! The evolution of Skronk.

    • Linkara's reaction to the shorts worn by one of the officers at the Peace Keeping Force HQ.

Linkara (impersonating the officer): Don't worry citizens! My hot pants will save you!

    • "Wait wait wait, she was supposed to be Irish? Crap, now I gotta start over!"
    • An audience member's reaction to the very formally constructed internal monologue of the villain:

Audience Member: Can we do that in English please?

    • Linkara reacting to the fact that the post-apocalyptic setting Atari Force is set in looks way better than the comic describes it.

Linkara: This is the cleanest Armageddon I've ever seen.

    • "Okay, what genius decided to put a claustrophobic man in space?"
    • "So, wait: in the future, individual businesses and research foundations assume all political control, instead of governments? Man, this explains so damn much about the Umbrella Corporation."

Cry For Justice #5-7

  • Justity Justice #5, 6, and Justice.
    • GINGEVITIS STRIKES WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT!
    • And Black Canary has turned into a Romulan.

    • To round out the Off-Model comments, his frequent mention of the "surprisingly Caucasian Firestorm."
    • The Justice League neutralizes Prometheus... and then puts his helmet back on him as they chain him up (the helmet is the source of his abilities). Linkara loses it.
      • "Wait, he gave you the codes while he was still on board the satellite? Why didn't you knock him out again afterwards?! Did he make you pinkie swear not to?!"
    • The intensely terrifying ending of the video, capped off with... Lesley Gore.

Care Bears #13

  • Linkara's initial reaction to the Care Bears comic Liz tries to cheer him up with.
    • The Great Caring War of 1998.
    • The very first two comments on the video:

mlsterben: I know how to beat Vyse! Round up a bunch of Care Bears, lure Vyse into a hall of mirrors, and let those Care Bears fire off as many Care Bear Stares as possible. It's unethical, but he'll become a saviour of universes! :D

Bullderdash: Vyse is far too clever to fall for the care bares [sic] stare, or be unprepared for the aformentioned [sic] radioactive belly buttons of any ursine nature. I'd suggest having Superman give Vyse a Mind erasing kiss.

Linkara!Care Bears!: As long as we can radically alter people's personalities with our dark powers free will is a thing of the past!

    • Due to Star Comics calling itself the new world in the Marvel Universe, Linkara then wonders if this means the Care Bears needed to register during the Civil War.

Superman: Distant Fires

  • Superman: Distant Fires
    • "...it's only appropriate that I give this the right kind of travel music." *Cue anime version of Route 1 from Pokémon*
    • Liz's look at the beginning of the video after she asks Linkara's role in fending off Vyce is just priceless.

Linkara: I'll be doing the most important job of all: Reviewing a crappy Elseworlds comic.

    • This comic also bears the ultimate You Fail Physics Forever moment. He get into the precise jargon about Earth Science, brings up some tweets on the topic, and even makes a swipe at Captain Planet. And it comes down to the following:

Linkara: Yes, nuclear war would most certainly devastate most, if not all life on Earth. But, IT CANNOT BLOW IT UP...And yes, that is actually what is happening. The world is blowing up and it will explode at the end of this comic.

Bored looking Linkara: Let's do the Time Warp again!

    • Linkara's new nickname for Supes.

Linkara: I know what you are. Bearded idiot.

  • "Why the repetition there? THE REPETITION THERE?!"
  • "...and if you look over there, honey, you'll see the giant, floating hallucination of my dead wife!"
  • Billy Batson starts ranting about how he was always a step below Superman:

Comic: He was always Number One, and I was always a distant Number Two!
Linkara: Well, I'll say one thing, this comic is indeed Number Two.

Youngblood #3

Doctor Who Classics #7

  • Doctor Who Classics #7 - The title card. Just seeing a confused looking 5th Doctor standing between Vyce and Linkara is hilarious.
    • Linkara and Liz making awkward small talk while waiting for Vyce to arrive, including a huge Lampshade on the absudity of a comic book review series having its own epic storylines.
    • Linkara's interpretation of 'Mad Max':

Linkara: "But then again, maybe the village can't get beyond Thunderdome. Ha! I'm catching up, Spoony!"

    • After concluding the review, Pollo announces that they've got a lock on Vyce. His response is a combination of Nine and Ten's catchphrases.

Linkara: Fantastic! Allons-y, everyone!

    • The question of should they keep Lord Vyce's ship. Linkara is downright gleeful of the prospect that it might have a minibar.
    • Linkara hitting Lord Vyce with his clue stick.
    • "Is that Lord Vyce? Tell him that he's an asshole!"
    • The Angry Joe army attacking Lord Vyce's forces on the ship. Especially since it's literally an army of Angry Joes.
    • "You know Vyce, I think you just need some Good Vibrations" Linkara then uses two sonic screwdrivers on Vyce.
      • Later, "I didn't even have to use my third screwdriver!"
  • Linkara's confusion over how to pronounce "Synthesiser."
  • "I'm just distracting you so she can stab you!"

Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four in... Brain Drain!

  • Linkara opening the Spider-Man/Fantastic Four PSA Hell with a Captain's Log ("Stardate...umm...Monday.") on his new ship dressed in a Star Trek II the Wrath of Khan era Starfleet uniform, ending in "I hope owning a ship won't go to my head. I'd hate to start walking around in a Starfleet uniform..."
    • For once, the comic has one all by itself: "Oh Doomsie, gaze upon my radiant beauty and despair!"
    • Linkara sees that the comic was written by Tom DeFalco and takes the Heroic BSOD to new levels of literalness.
    • The fact that Linksano was pacified from taking over the universe himself by a chemistry playset. Talk about Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny!
      • A junior chemistry playset, even! "That'll keep him occupied for a few months!"
    • "Okay I take it back. Reed Richards is not a genius. He is in fact a complete moron." In fact, his facial expressions at all the Idiot Plot moments (which is a LOT) in this comic are hilarious.
    • After explaining why Peter Parker is a teacher in this, he also notes: "However, he's not a teacher anymore! Why is this you ask?" *cue picture of One More Day while the Imperial March plays ominously over it*
    • "Better start with how to use the toilet."
    • "I really hope this guy is just a malfunctioning doombot"
