The cast of the Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses second anniversary special ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}''.
----
!!WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic
* AxCrazy: He [[spoiler:buys 20 tons of dynamite so, in the event of someone trying to usurp him, he can ''blow up the nation'']].
* BigBad: Is increasingly portrayed as one [[spoiler:up until the final episode, where ''everyone'' turns against him.]]
* BreakTheHaughty: Once he conquered Molossia,
* TheCaligula: Once he takes over and gets ahold of power, he uses it solely to entertain himself and threaten the lives of others if they do anything to endanger his hold on it.
* CombatPragmatist: In [[spoiler:his fight with Insano]].
* CommissarCap: Wears one as part of his M. Bison costume.
* ConflictingLoyalty: Starting from the Ma-Ti scene, between his desire to go home where he has his friends and need to keep his position of power.
* DrunkWithPower: After taking over Molossia, he TookALevelInJerkass and abuses his power, having the rest of the crew to do the hard work in running Kickassia while he himself does nothing but order everyone around.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Invoked. Critic deliberately uses a deeper voice when he's in his N. Bison persona. Film Brain even lampshades this by asking if he doesn't get tired using that voice, to which the Critic admits he does and briefly drops the act.
* EvilOverlord: His rule
* EvilVersusEvil: When he fights [[spoiler:Dr. Insano]]
* GladIThoughtOfIt: Constantly does this to Phelous.
* HenpeckedHusband: To Chick in their moments of psychotic stabbing at domesticity.
* HumiliationConga: [[spoiler:The final episode is his.]]
* LargeHam
* PowerFloats: Subverted. It seems that the advanced electromagnetic science that he claims allow him to float actually consists of, well:
--> [[spoiler:Dr. Insano]]: "You do realise you're just standing on your tippy-toes, don't you?"
* ShockAndAwe: Unexpectedly breaks out this power when battling [[spoiler:Insano]]
* SociopathicHero: Although he's decidedly less of a hero after the takeover.
* TookALevelInJerkass: The reason [[spoiler:why Team TGWTG rebels against him. That and the dynamite.]]
* TriggerHappy: Comes back to bite him in the ass when he panics and [[spoiler: shoots Santa Christ]].
* VillainProtagonist: While it wasn't as obvious in the start, he ''was'' a megalomaniac who randomly calls for the invasion of Molossia, and intends to proceed to take over the world afterwards.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Political power, but it still counts. As he settles more into his role as leader, his sanity slips further and further away until [[spoiler:he decides to rig Kickassia with 20 tonnes of dynamite.]]

!!Kevin Baugh
* AppleOfDiscord: He undermines the government of Kickassia by trying to convince various people that they'd be better at being in charge than the Critic.
* AsHimself
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He can do things like use a TeleportSpam and beat up the Critic's army by himself.
* {{Badass}}
** FourStarBadass
* CloudCuckooLander: Implied.
* CommissarCap: With his usual outfit.
* TheGeneralissimo: He dresses like and acts the part.
* HeroAntagonist: In the end Baugh's role amounts to protecting his home and trying to rightfully get back something that was taken from him.
* OneManArmy
* PaperThinDisguise: Lampshaded repeatedly.
-->'''Nostalgia Critic:''' All right President Baugh, hand over Molossia and nobody gets hurt.
-->'''Baugh:''' I'm not the President. I'm Fritz Von Baugh, Minister of Making Things Orderly.
-->'''The Cinema Snob:''' But... it's ''so'' obviously you!
** In RealLife, he has [[http://www.molossia.org/generalinfo.html several other]] personae, including Paddy O'Baugh, Achmed Al-Baugh, Angus [=MacBaugh=], and Juan de la Baugh, who make up his cabinet.
* PsychoticSmirk: Does this at several points as he sows discord among the invaders.
* TheQuietOne[=/=]TheStoic: In his presidential persona.
* SplitPersonality: Debatable. But he seems surprisingly sincere at the end when (under the Fritz Von Baugh personality) he insists that he's not the President even as the group is giving the nation back to him.
* TeleportSpam: Uses it to great effect in beating up the various critics.

!!WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick
* TheBaroness: Parodied. [[spoiler:She calls herself "the Rulenatrix of Kickassia" before her EvilLaugh.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Puts on a nice face, but is planning to murder her way into power.
* CombatStilettos: A stiletto heel is her WeaponOfChoice.
* DevilInPlainSight: Critic's not the only one who doesn't realize she's nowhere near as nice as she's pretending to be.
* TheDragon: She's officially the Vice-President and NumberTwo after taking over, it can be argued she's something of a [[CoDragons Co-Dragon]] with Film Brain.
** DragonWithAnAgenda[=/=]TheStarscream: She's the Nostalgia Critic's NumberTwo and is very obviously trying to overthrow him.
* EvilChancellor: Of the Scheming Vice President variety. She spends most of the special trying to off the Nostalgia Critic.
* EvilLaugh: In part 6, [[spoiler:when she attempts to claim Kickassia as her own]].
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: She seems awfully similar to a certain ''other'' female Vice President (candidate), doesn't she?
* ObfuscatingStupidity: And most of her fellow critics seem completely taken in by the act.
* TheStarscream: She spends her entire career as the Vice President of Kickassia planning to off the Critic, so that she could succeed his position as President.
* StepfordSmiler: Puts on a smile to disguise her ambitions and increasing frustration that the Critic just won't die.
* StrawFeminist: She dips into this a little as "Nostalgia Palin", blaming prejudice for why people think she's an idiot.

!![[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]
* BigNo: At MarzGurl's DisneyDeath.
* EvilLaugh: In part 6.
* FacePalm: His reaction to everyone wanting to use [[spoiler:Dr. Insano to attack the Critic]].
* FBIAgent: His initial position in the government is as head of the FBI equivalent, and he's quite enamored with stealth and surprise.
* FlashStep[=/=]MasterOfIllusion: Hard to tell which one it was intended to be, but he uses it once in Part 3 and then it never appears again.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: In his "[[Film/{{Patton}} Patkara]]" persona.
* IDontLikeYouAndYouDontLikeMe: To Angry Joe in part 5.
-->'''Linkara:''' Joe, Joe, Joe, I know we've had our differences in the past...
-->'''Angry Joe:''' We have?
-->'''Linkara:''' Yes. I don't like you very much.
-->'''Angry Joe:''' (sadly) Oh...
* IKnowMortalKombat: His tactical mastery comes from having seen the film ''Film/{{Patton}}'' over a hundred times.
* TheHero: Subverted. In the videos he made following ''Kickassia'', he portrays himself as one; calling himself "the liberator of Kickassia". Two things, however: first that a SelectiveMemory is in-character for Linkara, and second, that while technically he helped liberate ''Kickassia'' from the Critic, he was still part of a group that invaded ''Molossia'' for no reason and took it over from its rightful ruler.
* LargeHam: He is virtually a StraightMan through most of the story, aside from MarzGurl's near death and when he plays Patton. Then he becomes hammy with a side of ham. (Now with extra ham).
* ManlyTears: After [=MarzGurl=]'s DisneyDeath.
* OnlySaneMan: When it comes to [[spoiler:the unleashing of Insano]] at least. He's the only one who objects to what is obviously a doomed plan. Granted, this is partially just because he'd rather use his own attack plan, but that doesn't make him less right.
** He's also the earliest objector to the invasion of Molossia, but ends up going along with it.
** [[spoiler:Near the end of part 6, he temporarily seems to abandon his sanity and tries to declare himself ruler of Kickassia.]]
* TheSmartGuy: He clearly fancies himself as one, trying to set himself up as the OnlySaneMan and TheStrategist, although by the last episode it's clear that he was evolving into TheEvilGenius.
* TheStrategist: Thanks to the power of Film/{{Patton}}.

!![[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]]
* BattleCry: "[[Film/RedDawn1984 WOLVERINES!!]]"
* BerserkButton: He tries to avoid the topic of Dr. Insano as much as he can, but when people press him about the MadScientist he responds with some truly hamtastic [[BigNo Big No's]].
* CatchPhrase: "... But that was the past."
* ChewingTheScenery: Those curtains must have been ''delicious''.
* ColorCodedCharacters: Wears a white labcoat over blue-green scrubs, contrasting N. Bison's black and red uniform.
* JekyllAndHyde: He's the Jekyll to [[spoiler:Dr. Insano]].
** '''Except''' ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' retconned this into being an anomaly of the PlotHole. In reality, they're two separate people.
* LargeHam
* PainfulTransformation: Into [[spoiler:Dr. Insano]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to [[spoiler:Dr. Insano's]] red.
** This Spoony is a lot calmer and quieter in this series (unless he's being pestered about Dr. Insano) compared to how he usually acts. [[spoiler:He also counts as this towards Dr. Insano.]]
* ReluctantPsycho: This version of Spoony is torn apart by the idea of allowing [[spoiler:Dr. Insano to resurface.]]
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[spoiler:He changes back from Insano without any explanation except "I got better."]]

!!Dr. Insano
* AxCrazy: Probably more so than anyone in the cast.
* BadassBookworm: He's a scientist, but completely willing to throw down in a good old fashioned brawl.
* BattleCry: "SCIENCE!"
* BuffySpeak: "[[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours Well,]] '''''[[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours I'm]]''''' '''[[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours sciencier!]]'''"
* CartoonishSupervillainy: Par for the course when it comes to Insano, really.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder
-->''[[StarWars "I am altering the deal, pray I do not alter it any further...]] ooh, another alteration! You didn't pray hard enough!"''
* CombatPragmatist: Has no problems using sneak attacks or improvising weapons.
* ContinuitySnarl: This series added yet ''another'' explanation as to who Dr. Insano is. That didn't stop some trying to piece it all together, though.
* EvilIsHammy
* EvilLaugh: ''All'' the time.
* EvilVersusEvil: When he fights The Nostalgia Critic.
* '''ForScience!''': It's ''[[CaptainObvious Insano]]''. What did you expect?
* JekyllAndHyde: The Hyde to [[spoiler:Spoony's]] Jekyll.
** '''Except''' that ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' {{retcon}}ned this as an anomaly of the PlotHole. Even Insano acknowledges that they're separate people in reality.
* LargeHam: His first appearance includes mad cackling and ''dramatic lightning''. It only goes uphill from there.
* MadScientist: Emphasis on "mad" this time around, since he rather surprisingly doesn't use any of his patented gadgets.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Spoony's blue.
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: His "can" is [[spoiler:Spoony]].
** In the Bayeux Tapestry style credits, he can be seen [[spoiler:leaping out of the crumpled husk of Spoony's body.]]
* ShockAndAwe: Like in Spoony's own videos, Insano has lightning powers that he can use through thanks to the power of '''SCIENCE'''.
* SociopathicHero[=/=]PsychoForHire
* SummonBiggerFish: He was unleashed to fight a DrunkWithPower President Nostalgia Critic. Eventually turns out to be a subversion, though, since he ended up not being much help.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He's much more powerful and capable of fighting than [[spoiler:Spoony]], who is reluctant to unleash him, because, well, he's insane/evil.

!!WebVideo/{{Phelous}}
* BeleagueredAssistant: He's always coming up with ideas to support the Critic's movements, but the Critic always dismisses them before claiming those ideas as his own.
* DeadpanSnarker: His main shtick.
* GenreSavvy: His other main shtick.
* HypercompetentSidekick: When it comes to coming up with ideas and policies for the Kickassia government.
* OnlySaneMan: He's the only person who'd come up with sensible ideas for whatever is being done, such as using weapons for the invasion.
* TheSmartGuy: He's the one who comes up with [[GladIThoughtOfIt the Nostalgia Critic's better policies]].
* SurroundedByIdiots: Although he mostly doesn't comment on it, aside from his slowly growing rage at Critic's mistreatment of him and stealing credit for his ideas.

!!WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even ''he'' thinks playing Michael Bolton music [[spoiler:to drive the Critic out of the government house]] is going too far.
* EvilLaugh: He gives a hammy laugh after snatching the N. Bison hat and declaring himself the new ruler of Molossia.
* GenreSavvy: Within seconds of being presented with all the worries the others have about N. Bison, he asks exactly how many of them have been "talking to that Baugh guy," seeing right through Baugh's apparent plot. Subverted in that The Critic really ''has'' gone that crazy.
* GlassesPull: In the LockAndLoadMontage. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Then he spins dramatically and puts them back on.]]
* HypercompetentSidekick: He takes care of Kickassia's economy and gets really worried when it don't live up to the expectations the group has. He tries to report it to the Nostalgia Critic about it but gets ignored, much to his frustration.
* NonActionGuy: Is hilariously ineffective invading Molossia, [[spoiler:and doesn't even try to resist his arrest and banishment]].
* OhCrap: When he sees how crazy Critic has become, and seconds before [[spoiler:Film Brain springs a trap on him.]]
* PutOnABus: He was banished in part 4. [[spoiler: [[TheBusComesBack He returns in part 6, though]].]]
* TheSmartGuy[=/=]TheEvilGenius: Realized the depth of the problems in Kickassia's government as early as Part 3 and was the only one really trying to do something about it. [[spoiler:When he returns from banishment in part 6, he makes sure to take care of the Critic's dynamite ''first'', rather than just rushing in and hoping to be able to kill or disable Critic before he can use it like everyone else.]]
* SmugSnake: It's not really played up, but it's there.
-->''Those with brains usually have power over the brainless.''
** That line in particular also doubles as a StealthInsult, since most of the cast didn't seem to realize that he meant ''them''.
* StraightMan: To most of the rest of the cast.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Just see his quote under SmugSnake.

!![[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]]
* BattleCry: [[CatchPhrase "SYMBOLISM!"]]
* BigNo: When he realizes that [[spoiler: Santa Christ is dead]].
* CloudCuckooLander: By far the biggest in the cast, in a childish enthusiasm sort of way.
* CoDragons: Although Nostalgia Chick is the Vice-President and official NumberTwo, it is Film Brain who turns out to be the most loyal to the Critic and winds up acting as his chief enforcer.
* CostumeCopycat: He wears a black jacket and a white shirt, just like the Nostalgia Critic.
* {{Keet}}: Film Brain is always excited with whatever the Critic is planning, and was the only cast member to (initially) show enthusiasm when Critic proposes the whole "invade Molossia" operation.
* {{Manchild}}: Well, he is the youngest of the cast, but still...
* YesMan: He's always trying to impress the Critic, and agrees with everything he says and does. [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn Though he finally betrays the Critic after the latter killed Santa Christ]]

!!WebVideo/MarzGurl
* ActionGirl: After the takeover was complete, she was put in charge of training the Kickassian army.
* DisneyDeath: Parodied in part 2, when she was hit by a missile during the invasion sequence. Despite Linkara's melodramatic reaction towards this, it looks ''very'' obvious that she's not dead, but was just disoriented for a brief period after her fall.
* DrillSergeantNasty: She disciplines her army by punching them, even for the very slightest infraction. She even hits Handsome Tom for ''being too tall''.
* ShipTease: With [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] in part 2, even though it was PlayedForLaughs.
-->'''Linkara''': *[[spoiler: cradling MarzGurl after she's hit with a missile]]* Take comfort in my masculine arms!
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is dyed blue.

!![[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]]
* AxCrazy: Violent, destructive, and willing to go to extremes such as [[spoiler:unleashing Insano]]
* TheBigGuy[=/=]TheBrute: As head of the military and the guy packing all the weaponry.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon
* FiringInTheAirALot: When the TGWTG crew was charging at Molossia, Angry Joe could is spinning around, firing his guns wildly into the air.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: His violent actions and tendencies are played for laughs.
* HotBlooded: Very, very, much so.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: He never hits his mark. Justified, since he prefers to fire into the air, rather than any visible target.
* LargeHam
* MoreDakka: Wields two machine guns, and later a bazooka, which he seemingly fires at random.
* NoIndoorVoice: Joe delivers almost every of his line by shouting it.
* OffhandBackhand: Accidentally hits 8-Bit Mickey while waving his hand around.
* ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: Violence and shooting things are the answer to every possible problem, for him.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Tries to use his guns as a solution to every problem. Including the [[InsurmountableWaistHighFence Insurmountable Chain Link Fence]]:
-->'''Angry Joe:''' *Fires at fence* [[NoIndoorVoice IT'S NO USE!!! THE BULLETS ARE JUST GOING THROUGH THE HOLES!!!]] *Continues firing at fence*

!!Handsome Tom
* ButtMonkey: He doesn't get any speaking role, and he gets made fun of in almost all his appearance. During the invasion planning, 8-bit Mickey intends to use his head as a battering ram (but was denied by the Critic because "it's too soft"), then he gets used as a horse during the actual invasion, and is delegated as the flagpole after they took over the country.
* DemotedToExtra: He had a prominent role the first anniversary brawl. Here, he barely has a speaking role.
* ThirdPersonPerson: "This is a sad day for Handsome Tom."
* PlayingATree: Or rather, a flagpole. And a horse, too!

!!8-Bit Mickey
* AscendedExtra: Has more lines than you'd think, especially considering Tom's lack of importance.
* ButtMonkey: His role is essentially playing TheRuntAtTheEnd, and he gets accidentally hit or stepped on numerous times, often with the person doing so being completely unaware of him.
* ManlyTears: Averted. He full-on breaks down sobbing when [[spoiler:Santa Christ dies]].
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: "And 8-Bit Mickey!"

!!WebVideo/JewWario
* BadassLongcoat: As Yanki J.
* BatterUp: While briefly under his Yanki J personality.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "I like it!"
* CloudCuckooLander: Spoony's commentaries describe him as an "emotionally volatile" character who frequently gives weird responses in conversations: such as regarding every suggestions the crew has, no matter how insane, with "I like it!" and randomly screaming ThinkOfTheChildren during Cinema Snob's trial.
* {{Invisibility}}
* ThinkOfTheChildren: Invokes this at one point, despite the lack of children anywhere in the scene.

!!Lee
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Catches Baugh's sword with his bare hands, before delivering and epic beat down to the latter.
* CloudCuckooLander: Due to never having been 3-D before. As a result he tends to act in a rather strange and inappropriate manner.
* HulkingOut: Lee transforms into 3-D when he gets angry, and proceeds to kick ass with this form.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: On President Baugh. He later tries to do this to the Critic and is successful for a while, until he experiences his first ever GroinAttack.
* OneWingedAngel: Goes from his static 2-D form into a PintsizedPowerhouse 3-D form to combat Baugh.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: He's one of the smaller members of the team, but is the best fighter of them all -- being the only one to be able to defeat President Baugh singlehandedly.
* SenseFreak: He has apparently never been 3-D before, and so is completely captivated by sensations like touch and taste.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: His 3-D transformation.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: When he confronts Baugh, he delivers the phrase before HulkingOut and defeating the President of Molossia.

!!Bennett The Sage

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: He's a bad doctor. Let's leave it at that.
-->'''Bennett The Sage:''' ''(after claiming that smoking is beneficial for health, especially for pregnant women)'' Heh, what do you know? The chart was upside down.
* AxCrazy: He suggested to have the Nostalgia Critic be castrated with a fork, tied to a cactus, and "then play piņata with his entrails".
* BrickJoke: The reason he deduced that while holding an Uzi, one will not die, apart from InsaneTrollLogic, is that in the previous chapter, [[spoiler: he survived one of President Baugh's cannon blasts just by ducking while holding an Uzi.]]
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: His rather graphic description of how to kill the Critic makes the cast DoubleTake when they hear it. Try visualizing it. Disturbing.
** MythologyGag: Given the kind of fanfics he reviews, is it any wonder he came out with it?
** The outtakes have plenty more suggestions like that, including the surprisingly simple [[JustShootHim I say we kill him]].
* InsaneTrollLogic: Apparently, when holding an Uzi, you will not die. [[spoiler: Although granted, Sage probably can't find any other explanation for why he is alive after a near miss from President Baugh's cannon.]]
* JugglingLoadedGuns: Uses ''the barrel of his Uzi'' to wipe away a tear during [[spoiler:Cinema Snob's banishment]].

!!{{Benzaie}}
* CompanionCube: Beary.
* DeathGlare: Linkara ''better'' not be a Nazi!
* FunnyForeigner: "What do you mean you can't understand me? I'm French, [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench that's the language of love]]. If you can't understand me, you can't understand love."
* TheHeart: Slightly more of a moral center than the rest of the crew, see his fury at the prospect of Linkara being a Nazi and how he puts himself into harm's way to try to save Spoony from getting killed by the Critic, while Linkara by contrast is willing to write Spoony off instead of risking the Critic's wrath.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Does this to Spoony. Definitely a parody.

!!PawDugan
* AscendedExtra: Although still small, compared with his role in the first anniversary Brawl (where he had two lines), his role here is considerably expanded.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Howard Stern and other shock jocks. This is his official role in the Kickassian government.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Suggests playing Michael Bolton music to [[spoiler: drive the Critic out of the Government House]]. This evokes an EvenEvilHasStandards reaction from ''everyone''.
* GenreSavvy: He believes that he's doing the people of Kickassia a favour since, "when people agree with angry show hosts on the radio, it makes them feel better about themselves."

!!LordKat
* HilariousOuttakes: Including a bit where he ad-libs how the Kickassian government will make its money from pimping out Benzaie in Vegas.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: It was originally planned for him to have a much larger role, but the commentaries revealed that his part was trimmed down to almost nothing due to his injuries during the first day of shooting.
* StraightMan: From what little we see and commentary hints, he was possibly going to be one of the straightest characters. For example, while most of the cast was struggling with and climbing over the InsurmountableWaistHighFence, Lord Kat was simply going to take two steps over and go through the gate.

!!Ma-Ti from ''CaptainPlanet''
* BecauseDestinySaysSo [=/=] YouCantFightFate: "'''You can't change your destiny, you can only [[LargeHam chooooose]] to meeet iiit!'''"
* TheConscience: Judging by their relationship there and how ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'' seems to be in canon with ''Kickassia'', he was most likely just a personification of N. Bison's good side.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan [=/=] WhatTheHellHero: Tries to get across to N. Bison what a douche he's being.
* LargeHam
* SophisticatedAsHell: Peppers his otherwise serious warning with swearing and other ridiculous phrases.
-->"He did once, when he was loyal and strong, and not an ''assmuncher''."

!!Santa Christ
* BackFromTheDead: He was accidentally killed by N. Bison, but when the ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve sequence fails, he comes back after three days anyway.
* DeusExMachina: After he comes back from the dead, he [[spoiler:convinces the TGWTG crew to stop the whole Molossian takeover, and return home]].
* MessianicArchetype: He's ''Santa Christ''.
* OnlySaneMan: And, unlike many other examples in this series, [[spoiler:he ''stays'' that way through virtue of never being corrupted by any potential gain of power.]]
* TeamDad: [[spoiler:Hugs Film Brain, gives Nostalgia Chick ''Othello,'' and gets the whole group to admit they were wrong to take over ''Molossia'' and agree to go back to their online shows.]]
