Dude Perfect started off doing "trick shot" videos, which compiled of the boys making shots using sport equipment and often now random household items into places that seem impossible (or requires significant skill to achieve) and instantly got acclaimed fame, since they were one of the first times trick shot videos and channels had ever been established on YouTube.
Their early videos were pretty simple and did not have a lot of budget spent on them. They put their high school basketball skills and friendship together on display, dating way back to their College times, and have since bonded much more along with improving their skills in the world of trick shot showings.
Dude Perfect's rise of fame was in 2013-2014, when trick shots were everywhere on YouTube. Dude Perfect, already having a following, got the most popularity on YouTube in the community. They appeared in a lot of commercials on a lot of events, got mentioned all around the world through writing or video platforms, had famous celebrities (mostly sports stars) endorsing them or featured in their videos, and even got their own television series, "The Dude Perfect Show", which aired their first season on CMT and currently airing it's second on Nickelodeon (since 2009, many YouTubers have appeared on the children oriented networks, Nick and Disney, such as the Paul brothers, with Fred being the first), as a result gaining almost ten million subscribers in a span of one year.
Their popularity continues to grow as many admire they love and skills of competitions and trick shots along with their expression of family friendly entertainment, as well as their appearances on Guinness World Record books which they have been on several times so far.

Face-Off videos are featured on the Whistle Sports Network YouTube channel. In these Face-Off videos, the Dude Perfect members draw two people to Face-Off in a contest and a sideline announcer to commentate. The commentator is usually portrayed in a comedic sense, with an outlandish outfit and personality. Tyler is most often chosen to play this role, having been selected 10 times. At first, the winner received a replica WWE Championship belt, referred to on-air as the "WWC (Winner Winner Championship Dinner) Belt", but eventually a customized Dude Perfect Face-Off Championship belt was created, first debuting in the Office Golf Face-Off. However, the WWC is still occasionally presented along with the customized belt.
Coby is the most successful member of the group in regards to Face-Offs; he has competed in 8 Face-Offs and won 7 of them. By contrast, Cory is the least successful, being winless in his 8 Face-Offs.

Dude Perfect Customs
Aside their video content and style, here is a list of things affiliated with Dude Perfect:
- Dude Perfect has a Panda (a person dressed in a Panda costume) who taunts people from the opposing team in Dude Perfect's various contests, meaning the Panda appears on Dude Perfect's videos often. Sometimes he takes part in the competitions and wins them even. The Panda is quite famous due to being a mascot at the Texas A&M University (the college Dude Perfect went to) and being apart of Dude Perfect.
Alter Egos (note: section still in progress)
- Ned Forrester: Tyler’s main alter ego, Ned Forrester, is probably the most recognizable out of the five dudes and their alter-egos. Ned tends to be very bubbly and talkative, but he can come off as egotistical sometimes. He is known for having a statue of himself labeled as “The Golden Boy” and wearing a heavy wool jacket in most, if not all, of his appearances.
- Billy Butchcroft: Tyler’s alternate alter ego for a long time was Billy Butchcroft. Billy is short in appearance (though this may have something to do with the fact that Ty is only 5’9”) and most notably wears a jean tank top and custom sunglasses. He is also known as being incredibly self-centered and seems to take a strong dislike to Ned Forrester.
- Dale Tweedly: Tyler’s most recent alter ego, Dale Tweedly only appeared in one video, being Overtime 17. He has moderately long hair, a very long fur hat, and wears an extremely baggy white-and-green vest. He is known for being extremely talkative, often interrupting the Dudes in conversation, and has a very gruff personality.
- Judge Dudy: Ty’s take on Judge Judy features an outfit very similar to what Tyler normally wears, but is adorned with a long judge’s robe and a white powdered wig. He speaks with a Bostonian-British accent.
- Joe Flirt: Joe first appeared in Faceoff 22: Sumo Soccer, but has not made any appearances past that. Similar to Jon Carver, he wears a fake set of teeth that sticks out in front of his real teeth. He also has very long, blonde hair. His description is “This guy literally just showed up and grabbed the mic” which probably indicates a lack of broadcasting talent.
- Jerry Senderson: Jerry made his debut in Skiing Stereotypes labeled as “Jerry” and has been making cameos ever since. He has brown hair, custom sunglasses, and a very large (obviously fake) handlebar mustache. He has a very precocious but obnoxious personality and speaks exactly like a skiier.
- The channel's url name says "corycotton" who is one of the group's members, meaning the channel was originally Cory's before passing it on to his friends under collaboration.
- It's a running joke on the channel that Coby isn't good at battles, having only won four. This is mentioned in the video "DPHQ2 Trick Shots," when Coby has a completely empty shelf in his office, and he says that it's for his "future battle trophies."
- Each of the members have a nickname that their often referred to as in videos, most notably in the Overtime theme song. Cody is the "Tall guy," Tyler is the "Bearded guy," Coby is "Twin #1," Cory is "Twin #2," and Garrett is the "Purple hoser."
- The series would chronicle the events of the team as they embarked on their first national tour, the Pound It Noggin tour, in July and August of 2019. The series was announced at YouTube's NewFronts Presentation in May of 2019.
