** Even ''he'', who dissected "voluntary" Goomba and opposed Boomstick's baby cannon for practical reasons, considers [[DarkAndTroubledPast Doomsday's early life]] to be not science, but baby-murdering.

** By far, the one thing that annoys Wiz the most are abilities that cannot be explained in a scientific manner. For instance, Pinkie Pie's Pinkie Sense is so nonsensical, he simply refuses to believe in it, because of the sole fact that it can't be explained scientifically. Or at all.



-->'''Boomstick''': Y'know, I had an imaginary friend once.\\
'''Wiz''': Really? What was his name?\\
'''Boomstick''': (''Depressed'') Dad.\\

'''Sarge:''' Hehehe. Well, whaddaya know? Someone who has an eye for the finer things in life!\\
'''Boomstick:''' Hoho, you better believe it!\\
'''Sarge:'''
Y'know, you remind me of someone. Almost like the son that I… never wanted…\\
'''Boomstick:''' Well, that's funny.
I had an imaginary friend once.was about to say you're like the Pappy I never had. When I was a kid, he ran out on us to join the Army and never came back.\\
'''Wiz''': Really? '''Sarge:''' [[OhCrap Huh.]] Well… how about that? Time to move along, I guess. Nothing to see here. [[NotSoInnocentWhistle Do-do-do Do-di-do Do-do.]]\\

** He's getting pretty sick of stupidly named fictional metals that are straight upgrades to titanium [[note]]He's fine with metals that are stronger than titanium if they have some trade-off, like the Star Wars Expanded Universe's 'Mandalorian Iron' which, while being tough enough to repel ''Lightsabers'', is also a great deal heavier and thus sacrifices maneuverability for durability[[/note]]. Though after seeing the almost ubiquotus presence of such metals, at the time of "Mega Man Vs. Astro Boy" he just snarks at how Ceratanium is ''[[SarcasmMode obviously]]'' better than titanium.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: He was significantly less "nerdy" in the first few episodes. After a while his [[TheSpock superego]] tendencies were played up more, to make the contrast with Boomstick more apparent.

* PrecisionFStrike: Whereas Boomstick drops the F-Bomb like he's saying hello, Wizard presents himself as more refined. When he curses it's noticeable. He first said the word "fuck" after 59 episodes when Boomstick quoted [[Film/AttackOfTheClones Anakin Skywalkers's infamous "I hate sand" speech.]]

* VocalEvolution: By the third or fourth episode, his voice slowly became lower and more serious/intelligent-sounding. [[VocalDissonance It will still rack your brain that Wiz looks like a Mad Scientist and sounds like a college student.]]

* ArchEnemy: Pop-stars in general. He hates them even more than his "bloodsucking ex-wife". Considering how much he hates her, that says a ''lot''.
* ArtificialLimbs: He has some kind of robotic left leg, according to the gag reels, it houses explosives. As of Screwattack's top 10 Boomsticks list--which Boomstick hosted--it turns out that it is the Super Shotgun from Doom II.

** This is highlighted to a point in [[YoshisIsland Yoshi]] vs [[KillerInstinct Riptor]], where he goes into great detail with Riptor being a velociraptor.
** He also points how, despite their friendship, Red still treats Charizard like a slave because he always puts him in his Poke Ball if he ever is done battling with him, just like all Pokemon Trainers.

* GunNut: To an surprising degree, even with his {{Eagleland}} status. He'll enjoy guns that can [[TalkingWeapon trash talk]] for him, Prioritizes AbnormalAmmo to normal ammo, and if it causes more destruction, fun for him. Some of his favorites are [[Borderlands2 Shotgun 1340]], [[BulletStorm The Boneduster Shotgun]], [[RatchetAndClank The R.Y.N.O (namely the Mark 5 variant)]], and the [[RedFaction Nano Rifle]].

Originally a poorly paid intern and the person responsible for doing most of the more obscure information on combatants, Jocelyn was given her own show by the two hosts of ''Death Battle'' as an alternative to actually paying her. Her show, ''The Desk of Death'', focuses on facts that have been discovered but do not contribute in anyway to the combatants' strengths and weaknesses in the main show, but are surprising or interesting or, more often than not, just plain weird enough to be an episode's topic.
