Due to the very nature of the videos, there have been several copyright takedowns and temporary blocks on DeWarioFreak videos.

2017 Edit

April Edit

  • Why Serena isn't in Alola was blocked in every country except for Thailand. Within 2 weeks of a submitted dispute, the claim was dropped. The exact dates of this event was not written down.

June Edit

  • On June 15th, Rocket 'n' Rotom was removed from YouTube for copyright infringement. DeWarioFreak also received a copyright strike in this. He disputed it the same day, and was reinstated on June 29th, 2017.

July Edit

  • On July 6th, every episode of Sun and Moon Abridged (Episode 1-4), XYZ Abridged, and a regular Podcast were blocked worldwide by Shopro. DeWarioFreak uploaded a video announcing this the same day.
  • On July 6th, disputes for Episode 1 and 2 were filled. Both were rejected. Episode 1 was scheduled to be removed by copyright on July 13th in a copyright takedown.
    • On July 8th, a parody copyright response video was uploaded titled Ash Ketchup and Kermit save Spewpa. In the video, Ash apologizes to Greninja (who is comedically called Kermit, like Kermit the Frog) for scaring him when the videos were removed for copyright infringement. Together, they vow they can do anything, but a screen is then displayed on the video that it was removed for copyright. This then causes Serena to scream frantically.
    • On July 9th, Episode 1 was temporarily reinstated.
