This is a list of all of the running jokes on Super Beard Bros. and The Completionist, be they big or small.

The Completionist JokesEdit

  • Almost every time Jirard has Guests on his show, they will somehow get into Jirard's house without him knowing.
  • Sometimes when money/spending money comes up in an episode, Neeko the Price Gouging Cat will come up and say "Now gimme ya money!" This comes from Episode 2 of The Completionist, Secret of Mana.
  • While Jirard was completing Super Metroid, he forgot to save the aliens. Every so often, Greg will bring this up, which is usually followed by an angry beardman.
  • When Jirard says something with the word "bear/bare" in it, Greg will shout out "BEARS!" in reference to the Banjo-Kazooie review.
  • Whenever Jirard starts a review, it is usually followed by Greg saying "But Beardman!" When Greg says this, he is actually trying to predict the comments.
  • Ever since the Wild Arms review, Ice Cream Sandwiches have appeared in most openings of The Completionist.
  • Whenever a note-worthy glitch appears in a game, a character named Old Man Snitchez will come out, linking the spotlighted game's glitch to a Diablo event.
  • When Jirard had first done the Mario All-Stars Pack, he did one episode every ten weeks. This caused fans to constantly ask when the next episode of the Mario All-Stars Pack was to be released. Jirard himself realized during the production of a different Mario game that he hadn't even completed the All-Stars Pack after months and was ironically completing another, different Mario game, until Greg reassured him that a joke could be made out of the situation, thus giving birth to the joke. Even after the Completionist episode in which Jirard completes the All-Stars Pack Greg will often bring up the situation. On December 2 2014 Jirard completed the All-Stars Pack on Super Beard Bros.
  • When guests show up on the show, Greg usually mispronounces their name, such as calling Peanut Butter Gamer "Peanut Butter Sandwich" or Game Theory's MatPat "Game Genie".
  • Whenever there's a boss or fight that takes in outer space, Greg will yell "SPACE FIGHT!" This is most often seen in Sonic games, since the joke was created for the Sonic 3 and Knuckles episode.
  • Every now and then, Jirard will face a particular challenge that tests his already legendary patience. Under these circumstances, Greg will announce "Commence RANT!" To this date, the biggest rant has been the "Super Ultra Angry Video Game Jihad Collector's Edition", which has only been seen during the Sonic '06 100th episode special.
  • Ever since the first Dead Space episode, Space Cadet Necromorph has been a segment on every Dead Space related episode. It begins with a 60s adventure TV style intro then footage of a random Necromorph being killed ending with a 60s outro which says "Stay tuned for the stunning conclusion of Space Cadet Necromorph!" It originated from Jirard telling Greg that the original outbreak started from a Necromorph using a transport ship to dock with the Ishimura

Beard Brothers JokesEdit

  • "The GERG Official Seal of Quality, " a parody of the Official Nintendo Seal of Quality, has also become a staple of the show; Greg has occasionally been referred to as "Gerg" in the comments.  Upon Greg's initiation, the problem of his lack of facial hair clashing with the shows image was addressed.  As a result, the three of them made a pronounced effort to present Greg as a quality addition, going as far as to re-brand the show as "Super Beard Bros. DELUXE."
  • The longest running joke on the show is use of the term, "clench," from the episode Super Clench Brothers of Sonic 3 and Knuckles. It refers to the act of compressing one's posterior regions together in times of great tension. This technique has been scientifically proven to increase your chances of winning to upwards of 100%.
  • "You can never save enough," has become a common phrase within the show, as to preach the importance of saving one's progress in a game. It was first introduced in BERR, and ever since, this phrase has often been played with, spawning variants like "You can always save enough" and "You will never save." These phrases are often followed by "Hector Salamankey"
  • Jigsaw from the SAW series watching Super Beard Bros. originated the Kaizo Mario Bros. 2 playthrough. and continued in the Super Meat Boy playthrough. In reference to this, Jigsaw was featured in the Kaizo Mario Bros. 2 bonus and in the Super Meat Boy bonus, Jirard and Alex played a SAW game.
  • Starting in the episode Did You Nerd Gaming?, Jirard and Alex said that the phrase "Later Man" is the new catchphrase of this show, and throughout the next few episodes, they made it evident that this was actually the case.
    • The origin behind the joke Later Man was, excuse the pun, later revealed in a Mega Man X3 stream. Alex said that his friend Kurt was on the phone with an unknown person at Alex's house with Jimmy. Jimmy was leaving, saying goodbye, and Kurt said Later Man to him, which also sounded to the person on the other end of the phone call think that Kurt was going to hang up. While this is not exactly a worth-while story, this is the origin story of Later Man. After telling this story, Alex said the next rendition will include guns and lots of murder. Fun.
  • For awhile, Alex would annoy Jirard by adding " sacrifice" every time Alex and Jirard start singing, claiming that all songs sound like one particular song to him.
  • Starting with an episode of their Metroid Fusion series, Alex or Jirard will tell the video's editor to display a series of (somewhat related) items on the screen, and then announce, "...No one knows the difference."
  • During the LA Noire series, Jirard and Alex began every episode by confirming that "[they're] the cops", sometimes indirectly.
  • Also in LA Noire, Alex began calling the Beard Bros #perfectdicks. Though Jirard initially wasn't on board with the #perfectdicks hashtag, he eventually got into it, until them not following up on a small lead led to them getting an imperfect score on that case. Following this, Jirard declared #perfectdicks officially void while Alex claimed he, at least, was still very much a #perfectdick.
  • In Dark Souls III: "Oh...Draaaco..."


  • When under large amounts of stress, Jirard's breathing will sometimes become short and rapid, which has lead the other two to compare him to Hector Salamanca, from the American television program, Breaking Bad.  Because of this, Alex has often requested the Beard Bros. audience to use image editing software and alter photographs of Salamanca to look more like Khalil, often with the "You can never save enough" quote being in very elegant fonts.
  • When Alex or Greg say a ridiculous or humorous response to something serious Jirard says/asks, he'll often say "goddammit" under his breath. Greg has pointed this out before.
  • Jirard frequently makes weird, random additional work for his editors, from putting images on the screen to zooming in on part of the screen while playing sad music for a few seconds.
  • Jirard's absurd use of memes is almost a meme in itself. #BeardBros4GoldenGlobes

  • After divulging into extensive detail regarding the process of whale mating, Alex has slowly become known for discussing trivia that has no relation to the present topic.
  • Alex has given a large amount of praise to and broken out into the chorus and start of the first verse of Michael Jackson's "Speed Demon" in several episodes mentioning how catchy the song is and to say it when doing any activity whatsoever.
  • In the A Link to the Past series of videos, Alex reads the dialogue of the maidens in a high pitched voice and divulges information about Ganon's Secret Base.
  • Alex constantly claims that he's actually Shigeru Miyamoto, "inventor of Mario", much to Jirard's chagrin.

  • Whatever game Jirard is playing, Alex enjoys claiming, "This is just like Dark Souls."
  • When playing Dark Souls III, Brett and Jirard criticize Alex attempting to backstab every enemy.

  • Greg will occasionally bring up Chuck Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog's uncle in the animated series. After bringing him up once in a Mega Man X2 episode titled CHUCK HEDGEHOG!, he became obsessed with him for the rest of the episode and occasionally mentions him now.
