Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's the That Guy With The Glasses one-year anniversary special, which consists of a brawl between the site's most prolific contributors. The Nostalgia Critic/The Angry Video Game Nerd rivalry comes to a head, splitting the Glasses crew roughly across medium lines: reviewers of video games (plus the guy who does the Nerd's theme music) versus the other reviewers.

The TGWTG Year One Brawl provides examples of:

 Critic: Benzaie! I knew you'd come to our aid! Quickly, clench your fists in rage and score one for our side!

Benzaie punches Linkara in the gut, causing him to fall over in pain

Critic: ...he's on our side.

Benzaie punches the Critic in the face

 Linkara: "Wait a second. If he's riding a puff of smoke, how does he make the thumping?"

[a beat, then everyone else turns to clobber him]

 Critic: Heyheyhey, you on my team?

Goggles: No.

Critic punches Goggles in the face

  • Giant Space Flea From Nowhere: Mike Dodd just kinda turns up out of nowhere towards the end of the Brawl, purely because he'd heard there was a fight.
  • Girl-On-Girl Is Hot: Enough to make guys on both sides stop fighting and take pictures.
    • Guy-On-Guy Is Hot: In the bloopers, Critic and Nerd shout at each other for a few seconds before the women tell them to make out.
      • In a deleted scene, Bennett the Sage and Spoony have a pillow fight, causing everyone to collapse with laughter.
  • Groin Attack: The Nerd delivers a massive one to the Critic.
  • Hat Damage: Linkara shoots Kyle Justin (of's hat off after the Nerd refuses to acknowledge the magic gun as a threat.
    • Also, at a certain point Linkara's own hat is thrown at the announcers.
  • Hiss Before Fleeing: The Angry Video Game Nerd in the first few minutes.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: Chick saves Critic from getting beaten up, Critic defends Chick from getting (he believes) insulted and he tells people on the other team to leave Ma-Ti alone.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: The Critic only manages to shoot a few things at point blank range with his gun and no one seems to be able to hit the broadside of the barn with the SuperScope.
    • In fact, only 3 shots are shown to actually hit anything in the whole brawl: Critic shoots the SuperScope out of the Nerd's hands, Nerd hits Critic with a thrown pen, and Ma-Ti hits Chester A. Bum with a shot from the SuperScope.
  • Insistent Terminology: Referring to Kyle Justin as "Kyle Justin of".
  • Instrument of Murder: Kyle Justin hits people with his guitar.
  • Insult Misfire:

 Linkara: "Let the wussy go!"

Nostalgia Critic: "Hey, I will not let you talk about the Nostalgia Chick that way!"

 Benzaie: (in French) Sorry, Mr. Critic, but I'm a gamer first and a friend second...and quite frankly Mr. Video Game Nerd is a god among gamers. So sorry, but I must deliver you unto a world of pain.

Critic: Fortunately I can read your subtitles, you back-stabbing snail eater! I hate you!

 Critic: The Epic Fail Guy!

HWC: Sean!

Critic: Whatever!

  • Stock Aesop: The Critic caps off his rousing speech with a bundle of them.

 Critic: So, um...buck up, drink milk, stay in school and don't do drugs. Let's go!

 TheCat: As the Nerd is apparently uppercutting the Critic's jaw... And slamming him to the ground... And finally... nailing him in the privates.

  • Talking to Himself: The whole thing is broken up by Ask That Guy, who talks directly with Nostalgia Critic and takes his photo with the others. (and in just Acting for Two, Chester A. Bum pummels the AVGN while Nostalgia Critic is on the ground scrambling for his gun)
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch:

 Linkara pulls out his magic gun

Nerd: Oh, a toy gun. What are you, some kind of idiot?

Linkara: I'm not an idiot! I AM A MAN!

Linkara shoots Kyle Justin of's hat off

Nerd: How the fuck'd you do that?

Linkara: It's magic, bitch!

 Nostalgia Critic: "All right Nerd, this is it! No more to be continues, no more do-overs, it is time that we have the final battle! For the last time!"
