* ArcVillain / BigBad: [[spoiler:For the series as a whole, given their efforts to take over Yoglabs and kill off everyone for real. With that said, they seem to be followed by something ''worse''.]]

!!'''John Cochrane ([=HybridPanda=])'''
[[quoteright:346:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pandafortropes_7876.jpg]]
A former Machinima director who joined the Yogscast in January 2013, Panda is a frequent co-op partner of Nilesy's and makes several LetsPlay series of his own.
----

* {{Adorkable}}: Panda is a friendly, decent and dorky person.
* ButtMonkey: Often ends up the butt of many jokes.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He won the first Skyblock War episode.
* CruelPlayerCharacterGod: In the Sims. Two words: Baby cave.
* DoNotGoGentle: Of a sort. When it became apparent he was going to lose in his playthrough of XCOM: Enemy Within, he decided to [[StormingTheCastle attack the EXALT base]] using his few remaining squaddies. It goes as well as one would expect.
* GeneralFailure: His XCOM playthrough is both marvellous and painful to behold.
* GivingTheSwordToANoob: One XCOM video has him give his only psi-armor, an armor that increases a psionic soldier's abilities as well as being the only armor capable of moving the plot to the final mission, to Brain Shooter, a low level sniper with only a basic Psi-attack, as opposed to [[ColonelBadass Dom]][[ActionSurvivor on8]], a fully specialized psionic Col. Heavy. Overlaps with GeneralFailure, as he had no idea what caused the game to progress.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Along with LetsPlay/SoTotallyToby, he is perhaps one of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayqJpOIXHnE least threatening drug runners]] ''ever''.
* NaiveNewcomer: Joins Kim in being one of the last Yogscast members to join the Yogcraft server, although he has played it somewhat more regularly than she did, and so isn't ''entirely'' lost.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Tom is eerily good in ''TTT'' at causing the innocent terrorists to suspect each other and punish the wrong person.



* WrongGenreSavvy: His reasons for proposing a treehouse as a base were that it would be harder to assault, mobs could not attack it as easily and that it was scenic. While these were all valid points, he failed to consider his habit of falling to his death.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In ''Voltz'', he used ''two'' missiles to attack Lewis and co, leaving a gap between the two to force them to spend longer repairing. Then he promptly ripped them to shreds with a ray gun, and when they tried entering his base, after dealing with the sheer amount of auto-turrets, they triggered a booby trap designed to destroy his base, deny them anything valuable and take them down in the process. It didn't ''quite'' work owing to pure luck, but it's still brilliantly executed.



* GenreBlind: [[spoiler:With that said, Gozencratz is considerably more blind... choosing to go to the toilet and leave himself vulnerable, rather than go and aid Rildenstern. This gets him killed.]]
* GenreSavvy: Their plan being as dangerous as it was, they make sure to guard the door with something strong and TooDumbToFool. They didn't take into account the [[spoiler:Soul Absorber mod]], though.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In Flux Buddies #107, he kidnaps Tiddles and holds both him and a Penguin that Kim bonded to as hostages, both as leverage so he can ask where Kim's clone is as well as prevent them from killing him during his attack.



* GenreSavvy: During his second direct confrontation with Sjin [[spoiler:in the Twilight Forest]], he camps at the portal to stop him escaping another way and starts shooting him the second he sees him.

** This also shows during his one off video of Five Nights At Freddy's. Rather than being scared like many other youtubers, he seems more nonplussed than anything, merely muttering "oh, he got me" when he fails.

* {{Badass}}: Is one of the more skilled members of the Yogscast.
* BadassBeard: Has one in real life.
* BadassLongcoat: His Minecraft avatar sports an elegant one. He once dressed up as said avatar too.
* BigBad / FinalBoss: For Lewis, Simon and Duncan in ''Voltz''.
* CheatersNeverProsper: In ''Voltz'', he spawns in a lot of things that he logically should not be able to have in the game, even with the mods installed. Later, his base gets destroyed and Simon, Lewis and Duncan steal a lot of his loot, essentially rendering him a nonentity.
* CloudCuckoolander: As a cursory glance at his youtube page will reveal, he seems a bit nutty.

* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Turns up to Minecon 2013 wearing his full Minecraft costume. Along with his [[DistaffCounterpart girlfriend, in similar costume.]] Additional badass must be implied as Minecon was in Florida that year and it was ''really'' warm.
* GameMaster: In most of the Yogscast [=PvP=] matches.
* HiddenVillain: Seems to become one in Voltz. Lewis, Duncan and Simon were targeting Sips to begin with, believing him to be the enemy. However instead Ridge was the first to attack, sending two missiles after their base and doing extremely well.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: Whenever he teams up with Sips and Sjin.
* MadScientist: So much so that ''Yoglabs'' is described as being more moral than him, in ''Voltz''.
* MoreDakka: His ''Voltz'' base is filled with auto-turrets.
* PhraseCatcher: "A wild Ridgedog appears!"
* PhysicalGod: A popular fan theory claims that he is this in the Minecraft Series.
* TheTrickster: Sometimes implements his godly powers to mess with other players, such as when he uses invisibility to troll Nilesy and Panda in The Walls.
* {{Troll}}: Particularly in Voltz.

!!'''Dave Bagnall ([=DaveChaos=])'''
A long-time friend of the group who joined them officially in July 2013.

* AdventurerOutfit: His Minecraft skin is obviously based off Indiana Jones (he even confirmed this during a Q and A at a gaming festival).
* CompanionCube: Wilson in the Castaway and Survival Island playthroughs is this to Dave.
* TheQuietOne: When he joined the ''VideoGame/PropHunt'' tournament on Sips' channel, he didn't say as much compared to the others. Granted, he was on with people like [[MotorMouth Sjin]] and [[LargeHam Simon]].
* {{Troll}}: Trolled Simon and Lewis in the Yoglympics map when he put a button labelled to go up into the Dodgit event that actually threw Simon and Lewis down into a pit. He then proceeded to try and blow up the winner's podium with Lewis and Simon on it after his "special message" on the wall from the map makers (BOOM!), but ''just'' missed them and had to flee so Simon wouldn't 'spleef' him to death.
