Various minor fads that don't fit into any of the other minor fad categories.

  • Spoofs of the new shirts being sold by Max, the webmaster of YTMND. Usually saying "You will buy a shirt!" while hypnotic additions are made.
  • Screenshots of the YTMND homepage with varying captions.
  • "You can't see this YTMND!" Pictures (modified or otherwise) of a page stating that you cannot see this YTMND.
  • The 2004 and 2005 Hurricane Seasons; Sites that parodize the hurricanes from both season with satelite picutres of the hurricane and damage from nearby areas, accompanied by "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by the 80's German Rock Group The Scorpions.
    • The most popular parody involves Hurricane Katrina. Sites often show images from the disaster.
    • There also were some sites that parodied Hurricane Rita by making fun of the name by using Rita Repulsa's opening monolouge from the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as the sound clip.
  • "BethanyM", an administrator for GameFAQs/GameSpot's forums. She became the prey of GameFAQs forum users, due to their hostility towards CJayC "selling his soul to GameSpot". One such example of BethanyM is "I AM BETHANYM", in which a picture of her is accompanied by a male voice.
  • "Ten bell salute", a tradition in professional wrestling in which ten ring bell tolls are sounded at the beginning of a show to honor a wrestler who has recently died. This fad started as a tribute for late WWE Superstar Eddie Guerrero. The salute has been adopted for other YTMND-releated items that have been removed such as those described below such as Little Mac's Bike, Milton's stapler, and the victim in said Harry Potter spoiler.
  • Anti-eBaum's World. After eBaum's stole the image from lohanfacial.ytmnd.com and watermarked it, there have been a lot of YTMNDs expressing hate towards eBaum's world and encouraging a raid. Most have been accompanied to "Still" by the Geto Boys. There have also been many documenting the raid.
    • There were sites that talked about instigating DDoS server bombs and other various forms of hacking to screw up Ebaums World's servers, but Max Goldberg has recently condemned the acts and stated that he had to delete over a hundred Anti-Ebaums sites that talked about such attacks.

  • Muhammad, sites containing the Danish cartoon drawings of Muhammad from the Jyllands-Posten newspaper that caused a stir in the Islamic world. Many of these sites may have Muhammad Hassan's entrance music added in.
  • Bilbo/Butterfinger - a site parodying the Butterfinger commercials of the 90s features Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Bagginsin a scene where Bilbo is overtaken with a desire to reclaim the One Ring. Sites followed both featuring other items in Frodo's hand, as well as shots from other movies used to parody the same Butterfinger commercial. The song "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow is the most popular choice.
  • YTMND Bop, versions of YTMND songs in Kids' Bop form.
  • Test, where a picture of a high school exam is shown (or another pun on the word "Test") while Rush's "Spirit of Radio" plays. Intended to parody a YTMND that appeared on March 10, 2006, where a user created a similar "test" page that inexplicably was upvoted to be one of the top sites that day.
  • March 3, 2006; A error glitch involving HTML took over, leading to pages not being displayed properly. Sites often show the infamous error and are combined with other fads.

  • Self Descriptive, a minor fad consisting of segments of Samuel L. Jackson's character Jules Winnfield saying "English Motherfucker". The original site by Barclay contains both words, while sucessive sites use versions of the sound byte where syllables are removed or modified to make it sound like he is saying something else. The sound bite is accompanied by a picture resembling what the sound byte is supposed to be saying.
  • It is green, a fad based off of a comment TetrisAnarchist uses in almost all of his comments. TetrisAnarchist went on to create an "It is green" YTMND[2] where Data is holding up an alien drink (Aldebaran Whisky), and after failing to identify it to Scotty, simply says "It is green." Several spinnoffs can be found by searching for the It is green keyword.[3]
  • "WRYYYYYY!", a scream associated with the series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and popularized in a Flash video disseminated widely through 4chan.
