Top 10 Game Grumps Moments

The best that Game Grumps has to offer, their best moments, ranked 1 through 10. Everything from Jon to Danny, early 2012 to modern 2015.

The Top Ten

1 Arin's improv vs the Purple Plant Monster

This is like the "WHAT IS THIS?! " moment from the Sonic '06 playthrough, except cranked up to 11. Not to mention, you get to hear Arin dish out some top-notch improv skills, fueled and inspired by his undying rage for the boss battle. Probably his most outrageous and downright angry moment ever on Game Grumps and the ending is the cherry on top when Arin accidentally hits the end game option, nullifying all his progress. Danny laughing and dying in the background is also pretty hilarious, too.

A lot of great moments here, but this one I can watch over and over and still laugh.

V 4 Comments

The be-all, end-all of legendary Game Grumps moments. Arin finally snaps after seeing the ridiculous nature of Sonic '06, delivering not only a legitimately dramatic, still-quotable-to-this-day scene, but one that was genuinely stomach-hurtingly hilarious. Sure, it quickly wore out, but at the time, this was one of Game Grumps funniest outputs ever. A legendary moment that will never be forgotten by lovelies everywhere.

My favorite Game Grumps moment - bobbythebrony

3 Arin's AVGN impersonation in Mickey Mousecapade

This moment came early in Danny's tenure with Game Grumps, and one that is constantly brung up by fans at conventions and panels, as it is probably one of the most funny things he has ever done. Arin and Danny, before playing Mickey Mousecapade, look up a playthrough to understand the game, where the video is narrated by an AVGN knockoff. Arin, feeling inspired by the narrator, does his own AVGN impression, cueing Danny's infectious laughter and a great Game Grumps moment that still stands today.

4 Going Uphill Fast and the subsequent laughing fit

This one never gets old. Jon and Arin both crack after the sight of Sonic speeding upwards on a hill, something even they deemed impossible, both furthering themselves into mad laughter listening to themselves giggle and chuckle at the absolutely idiotic situation that they were in. The laughter is absolutely infectious, and it stands as a personal favorite of my own.

I've rewatched this too many times, and every single time I laugh so much that I feel like I'm going to pass out! The best part is when Jon got Sonic stuck on the cliff and he couldn't get out. Definitely one of my favourite Game Grumps moments!

5 Arin snapping out after losing the Pachinko machine in Super Mario Sunshine
6 Danny and Arin spin LOSE A TURN 5 times in a row

This moment speaks for itself: the immense amount of luck (or weighted wheel) that went into this moment is immeasurable. Danny spun 4 times, and all 4 he lost a turn. Then somehow Arin spins and loses a turn as well; this is what breaks the Grumps and they lose it from laughter. This still stands as a great Game Grumps moment, as Danny and Arin cracking up is always fun, but this one is even funnier due to the circumstance at which they're laughing.

It's great

7 Arin and Danny slowly descending into madness as they try to catch a frog in the ocean

I've never laughed Harder

8 "Eat your oatmeal"

Barry, edit that out

9 "A Fine Day for Mayoring!" (AKA Danny's Big Break)

The first moment I personally thought everything would still be fine without Jon was from this moment: where Danny once again shows his great improv skills and makes all of us crack up with Mayor Luigi. This was one of the first moments where the fanbase started to show some love for Danny before Dennis the Menace and Wind Waker 19, which is one of the reasons why it is on this list. The other being, well, it's really funny.

10 The Dennis the Menace Rap

This moment was sparked by the one and only Danny Sexbang, and a moment that many look back on as the event that quelled the fan war between the two sides of the Grump fandom: those resistant to the change of the channel, and those willing to accept the new evolution of Game Grumps without Jon. This was just one example of Danny's great improv skills, and another of Arin's infectious laughter. An all-around great moment.

The Contenders

11 Danny talks about struggling with OCD and depression

This one hits close to home. Where the Dennis the Menace Rap quelled the fan war, Wind Waker Episode 19 truly turned the tide of blind angry hate against Danny, to acceptance, and love from the fanbase. Danny talking about going through a phase of his life where he was just so depressed and without direction, and being able to come back to do something he loves, even going so far as to throw his medicine away in a lake for that extra symbolism, is just a testament to not only the impact Danny has had on the fanbase, but on Game Grumps as a whole. This moment was little on laughs, but big on heart, which is why it is still such a great Game Grumps moment.

12 Catharsis (Arin freaks out at the Sonic boss fight)

Late in the Sonic '06 playthrough, the Grumps were starting to lose steam from having just beat both Sonic and Shadow's campaigns and playing the game week in and week out, but came roaring back with this memorable moment of Arin's insanity. Arin, flipping over the genius of being able to play as Silver and fight Sonic, goes into a rage, subsequently scaring Jon and the audience. A wonderful moment.

Every thing these guys said, I felt when playing the game.

13 Arin trying to convince a girl in a online game, he's an alien

It just doesn’t get any better

Ross : *Stands near the starry background* "See this pale blue dot. That's us, suspended on a sun beam."
Girl : "WOW"

Best steam train episode by far.

Steam Train - Amazing world

14 Flash Man and Crash Man
15 Zelda and Link in the Castle Courtyard (OoT Part 5)

Arin and Dan crack jokes after jokes with their first meeting with Zelda in OoT, with her dream about the crab to Zelda threatening slurmp to strangle him with her polygonal hands and ganondorf slurping his soup. There are too many great jokes in this scene to talk about and appreciate but it accurately describes their humor and quick whit to cracking jokes

Just do what the crab says

16 Amazing Frog?

What do you get when Arin and Danny have been awake into the wee hours of the morning recording Game Grumps, are ridiculously tired and are pumping themselves full of Monster and Skittles, and play a ridiculous OUYA game only Arin knows to cap off the recording session?

You get Amazing Frog? : probably all-around the best Game Grumps episode ever recorded in terms of consistent hilarity: which still holds up today, mind you. Whether it be Arin "getting mad air, yo", or Danny faceplanting and having no idea what he's playing, this episode is the first one I show to my friends who want to know what Game Grumps is.

The crown is mine, ribbit king...

Dan recounts the events of earlier in the day when Arin sent him a series of inexplicably strange texts involving many mentions of Spider Man and "the guy from the Facebook movie." Cue Arin and the audience absolutely losing it.

27 "The D Club"

This should be much higher on the list.

The best part of this was Danny’s “OH MY GOD! ” after confirming it with Suzy. Like, it was genuine shock. He thought Arin was just messing around! 😂

28 Gama Ovar (Platoon)

Best. Glitch. Ever.
