* AttentionWhore: Cassie shows definite traits of this, often butting in on reviews without being asked to and being more than willing to be contrary or make unnecessary points just to be part of the review. Takes it UpToEleven in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' review, where she's basically [[{{Troll}} trolling]] Matt throughout the entire review, showing up at regular intervals to compare the books/movies to distinctly non-canon material such as ''AVeryPotterMusical'' and ''PotterPuppetPals'', or complain that Neville Longbottom isn't getting enough attention in the review.

Added DiffLines:

* ManChild: Discussed in the ''Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'' redux; Wonka from the book is ''child-like'', in that he exhibits some of the more positive traits associated with being a kid, like imagination and endless energy, but is still capable of functioning as an independent adult, whereas [[Creator/JohnnyDepp Johnny Depp's]] Wonka is ''childish'', exhibiting many of the negative traits associated with the trope, like rudeness and social awkwardness.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleVision: Regular Matt and Matt Hatter are never shown in the same shot until the end of the ''Animal Farm'' review, where the sudden use of SplitScreen is heavily lampshaded by the characters. Split-screen editing becomes commonplace after that review and it's done pretty well for the most part, except for the scene of multiple Matt personas walking through a forest in the ''Lord of the Rings'' review where the outside lighting and swaying leaves make the edits obvious (which is also lampshaded by the characters).

Matt Guion [[ActingForTwo plays both]] Regular Matt and [[PunnyName Matt Hatter]], two sides of the same coin, who compare and contrast which version of a story is better, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin books or movies.]] They are aided in this by several other of Matt's personas (such as "The Scottish Reviewer," who looks at theatre and stage productions), each one with his own gimmick or personality. Also appearing frequently is Matt's sister Cassie, who sometimes takes a third side in the argument or just [[{{Troll}} messes things up for the hell of it]]. Matt's brother Jeffrey and girlfriend Alicia make recurring appearances as well, as do a few of his friends -- several of them with YouTube accounts and personas of their own.

* CaptainObvious: One of Matt's personas, named exactly that. [[spoiler:As of the ''LordOfTheRings'' review, however, it seems that there might be more to Captain Obvious than just stating the obvious.]]

* ThoseTwoGuys: Background Singers #1 and #2 take on this role occasionally. Especially noticable in the ''LordOfTheRings'' review, where they are the analogues of Merry and Pippin.
