 "How's it goin', bros? My name is PeeewDiePie!"

Cquote2

Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, is a Swedish YouTuber and the second-most subscribed channel on all of YouTube with over 100 million subscribers. He holds the record for being the most subscribed YouTube channel for the longest time, holding the title from 2013 after surpassing Smosh (although he lost the title to YouTube Spotlight a few times in 2013) to 2019, when he was overtaken by the Indian music company T-Series.

PewDiePie was originally best known for his Let's Plays of horror games. His reactions, recurring "Characters" usually resulting in Funny Schizophrenia, and general randomness got him a fairly large audience. His Amnesia the Dark Descent Let's Play, where most of his recurring "characters", the most popular ones being Stephano, Mr. Chair, and the Barrels came from, was also were he attracted most of his earliest fans, which he called his "Bro Army". It was this time period when PewDiePie became the most subscribed channel on YouTube.

In later years, he started gaining more attention from his various series, including Meme Review and LWIAY ("Last Week I Asked You", named after the "Yesterday I Asked You" series by jacksfilms). In 2018-2019, he gained more attention from the "PewDiePie vs. T-Series" feud, in which many users told people to subscriber to PewDiePie in an attempt to keep him the most subscribed on YouTube. In 2019, he started to return to gaming with his popular Minecraft let's play series.

He was elected King of the Web, and donated his prize money to the World Wildlife Fund.

  • Ax Crazy: When the game he plays allows him to be insane(r), he will try it out.

    • Letting Piggeh talk for too long causes this.
  • Buxom Is Better: Rebecca from Nosferatu strongly motivated him to play the game.
  • Catch Phrase: "My name is PeeeeewDiePiiieee!"
    • "I DON'T CAAAAARRRRE" for Irresponsible Dad.
    • Piggeh has "I'm Pumped!" and "Yeaaahh."
    • Stephano says "Hello, Pewdie" so often that it could be considered his catchphrase.
  • Catchphrase Spouting Duo: Pewdie and any character he manages to get hold of.
  • Character Development: Piggeh has learned how to be a little less perverted in more recent playthroughts, even if he occasionally lets his suggestions slip. It also turns out that Pewdie and Stephano have feelings for each other.
    • The little boy in Happy Wheels has becoming more and more deviant towards his dad, and additionally more cynical like the rest of the cast. Also, Irresponsible Dad never says his other trademark catchphrase, "DON'T SWEAR IN MY PRESENCE!", each time the boy swears like he used to. Probably because he REALLY doesn't care anymore.
  • Christmas Episode: Pewdie was the first person to try the first Christmas themed mod for Amnesia.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Pewdie invokes this heavily, whenever he isn't in the company of one of his many "friends." See Companion Cube below
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Used liberally when being chased.
    • He's also been swearing more in Swedish lately, using curses like "Fan!" ("Fuck", literally "The Devil") and "Helvete!" ("Goddamnit", literally "Hell").
  • Companion Cubes: Stephano is a "talking" golden statue that shares most of Pewdie's fan art, and is usually found early on in custom stories made specifically for him. It's worth noting that before he had ever picked up that statue, he would sometimes carry a human skull, Skully, who shared the same exact voice, before being overshadowed by Stephano. When Stephano is otherwise unavailable, Pewdie seeks the company of a diverse array of other characters, such as Piggeh (a dead pig), Mr. Chair (a chair) and Jennifer (a rock).
    • Segway Guy really like his vehicles, but especially Vespa[1].
    • In his playthrough of Ghost Hunt, a survival horror map made with Garry's Mod, he calls the ghost detector Herky. He's apparently afraid of ghosts.
  • Crossover: Pewdie played Dead Island together with Morfar, another Swedish Let's Player with a similar fan-artistic, yet smaller, fanbase.
    • He also played the Co-op mode of Cry of Fear together with Cry, aka Chaoticmonki.
  • The Cutie: His girlfriend, CutiePie.
  • De Fictionalisation: A Bro sent him a real Stephano statue for Christmas 2011.
    • He's also received a Barrel candy.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: During his LP of Siren:

 Pewdie: I nearly collapsed in a vagina!

  • I Will Wait for You: Something both Stephano and Piggeh have endured.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: Skully claims to have been attractive once. Now he's a skull with two fleshy legs.
  • Jump Scare: A victim of many of them. With a camera recording his fear in all its glory, too! Some viewers might get scared along with him.
    • Bros have reported being frightened whenever he shouts BARRELS!
  • Kick the Dog: His Calling LP was loaded with him saying how he didn't care about Reiko, who was already Driven to Suicide.
  • Lucky Translation: The statues have been known to shout "Hallo!", which means "hello" in German. It's pronounced almost exactly like the Swedish "Hallå!", which has the same meaning. What makes this so lucky is that during one of these custom stories, he promised to speak only in Swedish!
  • Made of Explodium: A series of shelves with chemicals in part three of Ghost Hunt. Cue explosion and ringing.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: When he and his girlfriend play Amnesia together. While Pewdie Screams Like a Little Girl, she laughs.
  • Mind Screw: The Small Horse arc. Even Pewdie has no clue what the hell he's playing.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Piggeh is actually a snake, according to one playthrough of an Amnesia mod.
    • The "statues" that he blames so often while playing Amnesia are actually suits of armour.
      • Oddly enough, he refers to them by proper name in one of his montages.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: Nothing Piggeh has tried in a attempt to seduce Pewdie has suceeded.
  • Notice This: The only thing that can guarantee that Pewdie find items in some of the games.
  • Not Quite Dead: Irresponsible Dad and JB can still talk even after being decapitated or turned into Ludicrous Gibs.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Averted with all the character he made for the objects; he speak with them everytime he can, and anything that bears a resemblence to them too.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Whenever he breaks character, it will be because he is genuinely scared. The second part of the Afraid of Monsters playthrough has him terrified for minutes.
  • Rhyming with Itself:

 I know you love me, I don't care

I sing Justin Bieber, I don't care

  • Relax-O-Vision: Invoked in his playthrough of the Amnesia mod House of Creep 3 - he gets so spooked by the sheer amount of Teleporting Naked Guys in the hallway, he has to quit the game and look up pictures of kittens. And he does this all on-camera.
    • Not the only time he's done it. He refers to it as "Kitten Therapy"
  • Running Gag: Shouting LOL while playing Calling. Also, holding the computer mouse to his ear as if it was a phone. Shouting "RABRABRABRABRABRABRABRABRABRABRABRAB!!!" whenever having to shake off a ghost, as well.
    • "Stop wasting your lantern Pewdie!"
    • It might be unintentional, but Stephano gets knocked into objects frequently.
  • Sanity Slippage: Pewdie's second playthrough of SCP-087-B may be the closest time he's come to being completely traumatised. Towards the end, he starts whimpering and begging for the game to stop, and when he reaches the final scare, he runs out of the room screaming.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl
  • Schmuck Bait: He just HAD to check out a coffin... only to find a key in it... with a TELEPORTING NAKED GUY RIGHT BEHIND HIM!
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Piggy or Peggeh? Or Piggeh?
  • Tempting Fate: Lampshaded

  • Mad Libs Catchphrase: "[Animal that recently died] was like a father to me."
  • Surprise Incest: PewDiePie made Sven breed with the mysterious dog/wolf he named DEEEP, not realizing the dog was actually Sven's son until commenters pointed it out.
