The passing of Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata was commemorated with a minor channel event in July 2016.

Summary

In remembrance of Satoru Iwata's death a year prior on July 11, 2015, some of the rips uploaded featured music from games Iwata worked on or produced. These were planted throughout the day and did not halt the channel's regular uploading schedule.

The Iwata rips mostly used the catchphrase "Please understand the channel description", a reference to one of Iwata's frequently used phrases in Nintendo Directs. Two exceptions were "Fountain of Dreams - Kirby's Adventure", which used the catchphrase "Please read the channel description, delivered directly to you.", and "A Bad Dream - EarthBound", which used "Please take a look at the channel description.". Both of these descriptions reference other Iwata quotes from Direct presentations.

The first SiIvaDirect stream also occurred on this day, referencing how Iwata was mostly seen in Nintendo Directs.

Unrelated to Iwata's death, several rips from Five Nights at Freddy's were uploaded in reference to the request of "five nights of snop dog", which was fulfilled on this day in the rip "Main Theme - Five Nights at Freddy's", and also shown earlier in the aforementioned SiIvaDirect.
