Super Mario Sunshine was one of his most popular Let's Plays, if not his most popular, accumulating about 35 million views altogether across the 37 videos in the series.
Late 2009 was a particularly eventful time in terms of viewership, simply for the fact that Super Mario Sunshine, Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker reeled in massive amounts of views. By 2010, he was rapidly gaining subscribers, at a rate of thousands per month, and continues to do so.
his xenoblade lp is also a large success
Catchphrases and Fan Favorites
Chuggaaconroy's fans have shown extreme liking for several things he has said in commentary.
One of the most notable fan favorites in Chuggaaconroy's fanbase is the red Pikmin in Pikmin, which he nicknamed Steve during his LP of it, calling him a "trooper". The mini-meme spawned incredible amounts of comments related to it, several references during both the Pikmin and Pikmin 2 Let's Plays, and even a Facebook fan page.
Chuggaaconroy is credited for creating the term "the Let's Play curse". He describes it as an inevitable curse that clearly states that no matter how good a person is at a video game, as soon as they decide to publicize them playing it, all skill immediately depletes. This term is usually referred to whenever Emile fails at an ultimately easy section of a game, and has now become a staple in nearly every series of his. Many other Let's Players attest to this alleged curse and have video proof of its existence.

. WHAT NOOO NOOOOOO NOOOOOOO WHAT NOOOO- pikmin when a glitch cuased him to think he lost nearly 100 blue pikmin on the final trial level
Fanbase Chuggaaconroy's fanbase is frequently criticized. While many YouTube users and fellow Let's Players enjoy Chuggaaconroy's content and agree that he creates quality videos, a large portion of them also agree that much of his fanbase is incredibly annoying. Many members of his fanbase are ridiculed for one or all of the following:
- Extreme displays of fanboyisms
- Constant requests/demands for Let's Plays, despite his instructions against this, repeated several times
- General spam-like/annoying behavior
- Mass advertising, as is the norm with popular YouTube videos
Chuggaaconroy himself has joked that his fanbase can be irritating sometimes, but for the most part considers them very helpful in their aid with the games he plays. Many of his recent Let's Plays have sported several instances of fans telling him interesting facts about the game he did not know before, correcting him on a game fact that he stated incorrectly, or telling him easier or more creative ways of accomplishing tasks in the game.
also if protonjon is reading this dont eat the mushroom
The username "Chuggaaconroy" actually means Chugga A. Conroy, which is the result of a random username/name generator he found on the internet. It was later shortened to Chuggaaconroy because YouTube doesn't allow spaces and periods in usernames.
