His Minecraft parodies include, Never Let You Go (which later got a revamp, and sung by Not_Liink ), Yandere in the Title, Diamonds In the Deep, and more! His most viewed parody and video is Like an Enderman. 


In Minecraft, James usually plays custom mod adventures, adventure maps, mod spotlights, Pixelmon, Crazy Craft and command block showcases. 

On June 10th, 2016 ThnxCya uploaded his first Roblox video which was on the Roblox game Phantom Forces and this has lead to his channel primarily focusing on Roblox gameplay. He is now known for his Bee Swarm Simulator videos.

He also plays with other YouTubers including DanTDM and Thinknoodles on Crazy Craft, and sometimes other things such as Gang Beasts, custom Minecraft maps, and sometimes random multiplayer games.
