[[LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys The Runaway Guys]] is a collaboration between {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}}, LetsPlay/ProtonJon, and LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun. They LetsPlay games together, and have had special guests for many of their projects. There are many tropes about them, now the player-specific tropes go here.

[[foldercontrol]]

! Tropes pertaining to multiple main Guys:
[[folder: Multiple Runaway Guys]]
* ButtMonkey:
** [[LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun Tim.]] He -- as Yoshi -- has [[spoiler:been attacked by steam in Luigi's Engine Room, chased by a giant boulder in DK'S Jungle Adventure, bitten by a Pirahna Plant in Peach's Birthday Cake, and eaten by a giant fish on Yoshi's Tropical Island]].
*** He also got the first Game Over in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''. And got killed by the first Goomba. [[CastingGag Appropriately, he's playing as Luigi.]]
*** And the first death in Subspace Emissary.
**** A large portion of the Great Maze can be summed up by "''TIIIM!''"
** In ''Mario Party'', the lone CPU gets this in an actual round. One round actually has the guys forming an Anti-CPU alliance.
** [[LetsPlay/ProtonJon Jon]] tends to be the most skilled of the three, but sometimes gets screwed by poor luck, like in Wheel of Fortune and VideoGame/MarioParty during DK's Jungle Adventure. Then Yoshi's Tropical Island. [[spoiler:Then he won.]]
--->'''Jon''': GAAAAAAME!
*** ''VideoGame/MarioParty 3'' hates Jon. He just can't catch a break, and the game seems to take every chance it can to give him the worst of all possible outcomes.
** {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} has spells of being this every now and again, especially in [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/ItadakiStreet Fortune Street]]]] and [[spoiler:''Wheel of Fortune'']]. He also gets on the receiving end of many jabs from Jon and Josh in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''.
** In ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', Josh Jepson gets his turn at this; while NCS tends to die as often as him, he at least gathers more lives, meaning Josh usually has the least lives ''and'' the most deaths.
* ChromaticArrangement: Both in terms of characters in ''New Super Mario Bros.'' and of names in ''Brawl'', Chugga is Red (the fearless leader), Jon is Blue (he tends to be more proficient and knowledgeable of the games than the other two), and Tim is Green (the most laid-back and gentle of the three). Josh even fulfills the Yellow fourth member part of the trope.
* DreamTeam: They're three popular Let's Players joining together.
* EvilLaugh:
** Chugga has done quite a few. One of the best was when he won in a Tug-o-War game.
*** Made funnier by how whenever the character in the Bowser suit wins a Tug-o War game, they do an "evil laugh" animation.
** [=NintendoCapriSun=] also makes a few, often when the other two are yelling.
** In Episode 14 of ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', Jon used one after [[{{Griefer}} royally screwing everyone over.]] Considering how it sounded, though, maybe it would be more accurate to call it a {{Troll}} [[EvilLaugh Laugh]].
*** He gets another fantastic one in episode 15 after saying that, no, [[TokenEvilTeammate he would not start being nice to Chugga just because Chugga had done something nice for him.]] Unlike the previous {{Troll}} [[EvilLaugh Laugh]], this one actually sounded ''sinister.''
** ''Mario Party'''s Pot o' Skills has another [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHmAIqiH2A8#t=1063 fantastic one]] after Jon beats everyone in Tug of War.
* GenreSavvy: The Guys are well aware of their fanbase's...peculiarities...and in particular when Jon and Chugga argue, they often exploit it by challenging the fans to make embarrassing fanart or fanfiction of the other.
* {{Griefer}}: Chugga plays this role ''very'' well.
** In ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', however, [[TokenEvilTeammate Jon stole this title]], [[EpicFail with]] [[LaserGuidedKarma varying]] [[HilarityEnsues effectiveness.]] Though with the highest kill count and lowest death count, it's easy to say he's great at it even with the fails.
* LargeHam:
** Chugga is the Largest Ham of the entire group, as per his usual [=LPs=] where he sends his mic levels skyrocketing into the red zone. He really doesn't like it when things don't go his way.
** Whenever things don't go Jon's way in ''VideoGame/MarioParty'', he shouts "''[[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard GAAAAA]]''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMafSxAA7c0&t=690s AAME!]]''" He also has quite a few freak-outs like this during other boards, especially Eternal Star.
** Josh Jepson appears to be one as well.
* MagicKnight: Emile and Jon both fit this role in ''VideoGame/CastleCrashers''.
* MotorMouth: [=NintendoCapriSun=] talks real fast. Chugga does this as well, though mostly due to having a ton of things he wants to say.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Averted with all three, as they call each other by their real names (Emile, Tim, and [[CaptainObvious Jon]]) quite often.
* PowerTrio: Seems to border on KnightKnaveAndSquire at times.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni, Blue Oni, Purple Oni]]: Chugga and Tim could be seen as this trope, while Jon rapidly switches between red and blue at times. The other two are always red and blue, though.
* TemptingFate: All of them have done this - sometimes accidentally, sometimes on purpose to the other Guys. Jon in particular seems to have mastered weaponizing it against Emile, but Emile has done this to Jon on occasion as well.
* TheTeam:
** TheLeader: Chugga, who runs the channel and does most of the work.
** TheLancer[=/=]TheSmartGuy: Jon, the brains of the group, and is more mature and level-headed than Emile.
** TheBigGuy: Tim, the GentleGiant of the group.
** [[SixthRanger Fourth Ranger]]: Occasionally, the guys will attempt to get a fourth player, like Josh Jepson for their co-op games.
* TrueCompanions: They're willing to travel across the continent just to hang out, and they always have each others' backs, even if they do ham up the VitriolicBestBuds thing.
* VerbalTic: Chugga has a habit of suddenly saying "Luigi!" whenever NCS does something of note in the ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' videos. Josh also did this a couple of times.
** In ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' Chugga does the same thing, but with Dedede rather than Luigi.
** NCS tends to fill any dead air with tics like "Holy crap", "Oh my God" and "This is crazy", while Josh does the same with "Oh my goodness".
* VitriolicBestBuds: The relationship between Jon and Chugga has definite shades of this.
** Especially prevalent in ''New Super Mario Bros.'', with them repeatedly trying to kill each other.
** Guess what was Jon's and Chugga's most common death cause at the end... [[spoiler:EACH OTHER.]] In both NSMB Wii ''and'' NSMB U.
*** Summed up well in this conversation:
--> Jon: *to Chugga* I hate you.
--> Chugga: No you don'-
--> Jon: '''YES I DO'''!
** In ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', Josh also joins in this relationship with both Jon and Chugga. Tim is the only one not hit by this.

! Tropes pertaining to the main three Guys:
[[folder: Chuggaaconroy]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_therunawayguys_official_artwork__emile_s_avatar_by_acfan120-d6hi8kw_9825.png]]
->[[RunningGag "Press L to P!"]]

One of the main three Runaway Guys, Chugga is usually the best or at least better players of whatever game the group is playing. He also tries to annoy LetsPlay/ProtonJon as much as possible and allow for situations where the viewers can laugh at the group's collective suffering. In the ''Mario Parties'' (up to Mario Party 4), he played Donkey Kong. In ''Super Smash Bros'', he played Ness. In ''Mario Kart 64'', he played Wario. In ''New Super Mario Bros Wii'' and ''New Super Mario Bros U'', he played Mario. In ''Kirby's Return to Dreamland'', he played Kirby. In ''Fortune Street'', he played Bowser Jr. (except for the Slimenia board, where he played Donkey Kong). In the TournamentArc of ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', he played Lucas. In ''Mario Power Tennis'', he played Bowser Jr. In ''New Super Luigi U'', he played Yellow Toad. In ''Rayman Origins'', he played Rayman. In ''Castle Crashers'', he played Red Knight.

Wins: ''Mario Party'' (5 out of 8 boards and the Minigame Stadium), ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' SSE (tied with Jon for overall winner), ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'' Free-for-all (won both matches), ''Mario Party 2'' (2 out of 6 boards), ''Mario Power Tennis tournament'' (won with Bowser Jr), ''Wii Party'' (Board Game Island), ''Fortune Street'' (won Mario Stadium board), ''Burnout Revenge'' (had the high score), ''Mario Party 3'' (2 out of 6 Battle Royale boards, 2 Duel boards), ''Mario Party 4'' (1 out of 6 boards)

* TheAce: Not normally, but in ''[[VideoGame/MarioTennis Mario Power Tennis]]''. To the point where [[spoiler:Rodri is praised for being the only player to NOT be curb-stomped by him.]] Indeed, the guest players seem to see him as the OpposingSportsTeam.
* ADayInTheLimeLight: Not Chugga himself, but the fact that he plays as Donkey Kong in the ''Mario Party'' games contrasts with his individual channel where he's never played a Donkey Kong game or even a game that has Donkey Kong as a playable character.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Jon views him as this, thanks to A) his repeated usage of the word "suck", B) his DoubleEntendre style phrases, and C) the occasional HoYay moment. [[FoeYay Mostly with Jon.]]
** His hinted-at offscreen moments of...something [[note]]For example, he apparently tried to kiss everyone one night[[/note]] make Jon question this more. Strangely, he never shows any signs of this in his own [[LetsPlay LPs]], so he could just be deliberately acting weird to make these videos funnier.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: He has a habit of being distracted, such as pointing out how nice the background looks, while in the middle of gameplay.
** This habit of his leads to some very strange trains of thought on his part, like concluding that making pizza by going to the bathroom is an awesome power and that the final boss of ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' is the king of Hawaii.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: When Jon and Tim are asked on their formsprings what they genuinely like about Emile, they both say this is one of his best traits [[http://www.formspring.me/PJon/q/319603890112703120 here]] and [[http://www.formspring.me/BreakingNCS/q/319942053163183810 here.]] Since he's the one who [[MrExposition provides detailed information on every game]] and edits all the videos, this is to be expected.
* BadImpressionists: An oddly specific example; whenever Chugga does ''any'' impression, Jon always thinks it sounds more like ScoobyDoo than whoever Chugga was trying to do. [[MindScrew One can only imagine]] what would happen if Chugga ''tried'' to do an impression of ScoobyDoo...
* BerserkButton: Steve, as usual.
* BetterThanABareBulb: If there is any form of coincidence, irony, or status quo change in either the game or with the three of them, Chugga ''will'' point it out sooner or later.
* BornLucky: As per his normal [=LPs=], Chugga has huge strokes of luck in ''VideoGame/MarioParty'', including [[spoiler:winning the majority of the boards, having his stars switched with the leader at the last second thanks to Chance Time, and running into multiple Star Spaces in one turn.]] {{Subverted|Trope}} concerning the dice rolls that determine turn order, as he keeps getting to move last.
** Also, in the sequel, [[spoiler:getting a last second hidden star on the final turn in Pirate Land, ultimately leading to his victory.]]
** Jon points this out in Horror Land of ''Mario Party 2'' and refers to it as Chugga's "stupid luck".
*** Chugga himself lampshades this in [[VideoGame/ItadakiStreet Fortune Street]] by yelling "SUPER LUCK ACTIVATE!" when gaining a free teleport to the bank. [[spoiler:inverted due to him being consistently dead last for the entire game.]]
** He claims that when he was a kid, he never knew that Game Guy in ''Mario Party 3'' took away all of your coins if you lost until he played with friends, because he ''never lost''.
** This is actually kind of funny when you consider how Chugga's solo videos [[GameBreakingBug normally]] [[DiabolusExMachina go.]]
* BuffySpeak: Has begun doing this as of late.
* ButtMonkey: Normally not ''nearly'' as much as the others, but in ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', he becomes the subject of plenty of verbal abuse from Jon.
--> '''Jon''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext This is my pool party...I invited all the cool kids from school...]] Don't know why Kirby's here though.
--> '''Chugga''': Hey!
** Even ''Tim'' gets in on this:
--> '''Chugga''': I'm the American...[[BuffySpeak person.]]
--> '''Jon''': Dream? You're the American dream?
--> '''Tim''': [[DeadpanSnarker One more reason to move to Canada.]]
** He becomes one in ''Wheel of Fortune'' when his unfamiliarity with the show and lack of expertise at word puzzles lead to "Calibrary Cuff Paula Deen." Chugga is genuinely embarrassed about it, and Jon's mocking doesn't help.
* CallBack: Chugga has referenced the Runaway Guys videos in his then-current solo [=LPs=] -- [[{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 2]] and [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Luigi's Mansion]]. He specifically references "Don't Eat The Mushroom" whenever a poison mushroom shows up in the mansion.
** This has continued into later [=LPs=] as well.
* CatchPhrase:
** "[[VanHalen Might as welllll JUMP!]]"
** It's almost always him saying "[[VideoGame/MarioParty DOH I MISSED]]".
** "That is not the point" is his usual rebuttal when Jon wins an argument with him.
** [[NoIndoorVoice "WHERE YOU AT?"]] whenever something goes his way.
** Likes to say "Maybe-possibly-almost-not-quite" instead of just a simple "maybe" (or anything similar).
** In the ''Mario Party'' [=LPs=], whenever he's the 1 in a 3-on-1 minigame he declares "Everyone against the monkey!"
** "PlotTwist!"
** "We weren't recording!?!"
** "[Winner] takes it!" whenever a minigame or tournament match is won.
** "Got it!" whenever he [[CaptainObvious gets something]].
* CharacterDevelopment: He's a real person and not a character, but this is the closest trope. He starts out in ''Mario Party'' rather normal, only having occasional LargeHam or CloudCuckooLander moments, with pretty much the only real humour from him coming from his rivalry with Jon. By ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', however, he's become much more entertaining.
** Another example, from ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' onwards, he indeed starts playing up his rivalry with Jon, trolling him for viewer enjoyment, making bad puns and references, etc. By the time Josh returns for ''New Super Mario Bros. U'', Josh seems the most openly annoyed by this, and by the end of the LP, and ever since, Chugga has toned it down and become more cooperative. Lampshaded in the credits for ''New Super Luigi U'' when Chugga himself admits that he was becoming more "grating" to listen to during video editing.
* CharacterExaggeration[=/=]{{Flanderization}}: After the incident in the first LP about him never having seen an Indiana Jones or Back to the Future film, Jon now reacts with exaggerated shock every time Chugga mentions he's seen ''any'' film.
** Similarly, in ''Mario Party 2'', Jon likes to exaggerate Chugga's love of the Wario "DOH, I MISSED" catchphrase (together with Chugga's encyclopaedic knowledge of games) by claiming Chugga has an annotated list of every single situation in the game where the catchphrase appears.
** Chugga himself seems to deliberately play up his own LargeHam, LeeroyJenkins and BookDumb / PopculturalOsmosisFailure tendencies to contrast with Jon more. There is quite a noticeable contrast with his solo [=LPs=].
* CheshireCatGrin: Jon informs us that Chugga has one of these.
** Referenced again in Subspace Emissary 5.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: He cites himself as this. Josh laughs.
* CloudCuckooLander: Exhibits traits of this. Mentioned in ''Fortune Street'' Mario Stadium:
--> '''Jon:''' Have we come to the realization that Emile just lives in his own world when it comes to commentary?
--> '''Josh:''' Yeah...
* CrazyPrepared: He states himself as such [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxtTur6qTD4&t=20m58s here]] because he practices for his [[LetsPlay LPs]] months in advance while talking to someone else. This is so he can adjust to the multiple factors that come with other people being around while focusing on playing the game. He also keeps everything super organized according to Jon and Tim and is usually the person with the most knowledge of their current project.
** This is most noticeable in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'', where Chugga plays pretty well despite stating elsewhere that he isn't good at 2D Mario games. In a later LP he mentions that he's incapable of beating ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' when playing alone, which you wouldn't expect from his performance in the LP.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Not ''stupid'', per se, but tends to not play too well in ''Subspace Emissary''. However, when they reach normal matches rather than platforming, he proves to be quite competent.
** He shows this even more in the bonus battle and tournament, doing amazingly well in both. [[spoiler:He wins both of their matches in the bonus battle, and reaches fourth place in the tournament. And he likely could have gotten even higher, if he hadn't lost his first match due to a rolling crate spawning and ramming him offscreen.]]
* CurbstompBattle: He's on the delivering side in ''Mario Power Tennis'', constantly. He was one of the only ones to practice, though.
* DeadpanSnarker: Almost as much as Jon.
* {{Determinator}}: According to [[http://www.formspring.me/PJon/q/329394223721759303 Jon's Formspring]], Chugga ''really'' wanted to be Player 1 in ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' since the three of them hadn't changed player numbers since the beginning, despite not being terribly good at the game. So he allegedly powered his way through the game in order to prove to Jon that he was capable of being Player 1. And he was, once the project began.
* DoingItForTheArt: In-Universe, he volunteered to partake in [[VideoGame/MarioParty control stick]] [[ScrappyMechanic spinning]], despite the fact that none of the guys had to, just so the viewers would enjoy it.
* DoubleStandard / FantasticRacism: Played to very humorous effect and lampshaded every single time.
* GrammarNazi: Is the first to correct Jon whenever he says something like "Tim and me", reminding him to say "Tim and ''I''" instead.
-->'''Jon:''' Thank you, [[LampshadeHanging Grammar Nazi.]]
* {{Griefer}}: Usually the one that screws the other guys out of victories.
* TheHero: The unofficial leader, due to his gaming skill. Furthered by him being Player 1 in many of their [=LPs=].
* HiddenDepths:
** In episode 3 of ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', it's mentioned that he can beatbox.
** In ''Wheel of Fortune'', he reveals that, despite doing poorly in school overall, he was top of his class (or close to it) in History/Geography.
* HypocriticalHumor: Tortures Jon with the "Move faster Pokey" line for fun, but reacts in pure agony whenever Jon mentions [[{{Pikmin}} Steve]].
* IconicOutfit: His polo shirts, which Jon tries to exaggerate into a CargoShip. Even the game ''VideoGame/WiiParty'' joins in by randomly assigning a striped colour scheme to Chugga's Mii in one minigame, making it look like he's wearing a polo shirt.
* {{Keet}}
* LargeHam: More so than on his main channel. Jon pointed out on one of his streams that Emile is more boisterous when there's two or more people around him.
* LeeroyJenkins: Many of the other Guys' and Guests' deaths are due to Chugga running ahead and scrolling them offscreen.
* {{Manchild}}: Played for laughs, and done intentionally, but his childish humor easily fits this trope.
** Somewhat appropriate since he is the youngest of the three members.
* MrExposition: He is often the one to know the most about the game they're [=LPing=], and will supply information about its details and background as they play.
* NarratingTheObvious: Of the three, his commentary tends toward this the most.
* NoIndoorVoice: Utterly ''screams'' whenever something really good or bad happens.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: He occasionally becomes angry or irritable, despite usually being the cheerful one. Most prominent examples are Bowser Land of ''Mario Party 2'', the PrecisionFStrike example below, and the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' recording failure story listed on their EpicFail page.
* PhraseCatcher / FanNickname: Jon and some of the tournament guests have taken to calling him "Mr. Conroy" in a crotchety old man voice.
* PokeThePoodle: His revenge on Jon for trying to kill him is [[spoiler:to not replace the batteries in Jon's controller until after the game is over]].
* PopculturalOsmosisFailure: All the time, to the point where it becomes a RunningGag.
* PrecisionFStrike:
** After they get a Star Coin which took them quite a while to get, only to have the only one alive, Jon, die at the end...
--> '''Chugga:''' I speak for everyone when I say this: Fuck you, [=ProtonJon=].
** Also, twice in episode 20 of ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''.
* PungeonMaster
* PuppyDogEyes: At one point, though we can only take the word of the other players.
* ReadTheFreakingManual: Tries to get away with not doing this, under the pretense that nobody else does it either. He pays for it each time.
* {{Red Oni|BlueOni}}: The loud and easily excitable one.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Before the PrecisionFStrike example, but after Jon died, Chugga goes into this territory.
** Episode 10 of Subspace Emmissary, when having to confront a red Pikmin.
* StupidSexyFlanders: In one of his ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'' Let's Play [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cl19yGYiFNA&t=11m13s videos]], Tim says that while he isn't gay, he thinks Chugga is gorgeous.
* SurroundedByIdiots: In an inversion of what normally occurs, Chugga claims this during Episode 10 of the ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' LP.
--> '''[=ProtonJon=]:''' Oh, so ''you're'' the one saying [you're] surrounded by idiots now!
* ThatsWhatSheSaid: His version is to say "...in ''bed''" in a suggestive tone.
* TookALevelInBadass: In ''New Super Luigi U''.
* {{Troll}}: It's difficult ''not'' to imagine Chugga making a [[MemeticMutation trollface]] when he makes an IncrediblyLamePun or screws Jon over. His teachers always said (and he agrees) that he does not work well with others, which explains why he acts differently than in his solo videos.
* UnfitForGreatness: As far as the ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' LP goes. He fancies himself the leader at all times, but he doesn't know Kirby nearly as well as other games or as much as Jon knows Kirby. Still wants to be the leader. See {{Determinator}} above.
* ViewersAreGeniuses: Given his tastes are lean towards the obscure, and his tendency to gush over things he likes, expect a lot of references that may not seem familiar at all.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He seems to want to impress [=ProtonJon=] (his inspiration to be an [=LPer=]) in the ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' playthrough.
* YoungAndInCharge: He is the youngest of the three core members, and he is also the one in charge of maintaining the [=YouTube=] channel, editing the footage, and uploading the videos.

[[folder: ProtonJon]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_therunawayguys_official_artwork__jon_s_avatar_by_acfan120-d6hi9mx_9209.png]]
->"[[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard GAAAAAAAAME!!!!]]"

One of the three main Runaway Guys, Jon is also a great player, but is usually messed up by [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the game]] or Chugga. Tends to act like he's SurroundedByIdiots. In ''Mario Party 1'', ''Mario Kart 64'', ''Mario Party 2'', and ''Super Smash Bros. 64'', he played Mario. In ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' ''New Super Mario Bros. U'', and ''New Super Luigi U'', he played Blue Toad. In ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', he primarily played as Meta Knight (switching to Waddle Dee and Kirby in situational cases). In ''Fortune Street'', ''Mario Party 3'' and ''Mario Party 4'', he played Waluigi. In ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', he played Ike. In ''Mario Power Tennis'', he played Luigi. In ''Rayman Origins'', he played Globox. In ''Castle Crashers'', he played Blue Knight.

Wins: ''Mario Party'' (2 out of 8 boards, won the most games on Minigame Island), ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' (overall winner), ''Super Smash Bros 64'' (won both the round-robin and free-for-all), ''Mario Kart 64'' (won the Balloon Battle), ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'' SSE (tied with Chuggaaconroy for overall winner), ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'' Tournament (won with Ike), ''Mario Party 2'' (won 4 out of 6 boards), ''Kirby's Return to Dreamland'' (overall winner), ''[=LittleBigPlanet=]'' (overall winner), ''Wii Party'' (won Globe Trot, Spin Off and Bingo), ''New Super Mario Bros. 2'' (collected the most coins), ''Fortune Street'' (won The Observatory and Slimenia boards), ''New Super Mario Bros. U'' (overall winner), ''Castle Crashers'' (overall winner), ''Mario Party 3'' (1 out of 6 Battle Royale boards, 3 Duel boards; overall Duel winner), ''Mario Party 4'' (5 out of 6 boards, overall winner)

* TheAce: Although [[VideoGame/MarioParty bad luck]] or [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii his teammates]] tend to screw him over. [[spoiler:Cemented when he won the ''Brawl'' TournamentArc]]
* BerserkButton: His [[OldShame old catchphrases]], such as "[[KaizoMarioWorld MOVE FASTER POKEY!]]"
** Insulting his mother is shown to be one in the first episode of Horror Land.
** He also hates when people take his [[VitriolicBestBuds relationship with Emile]] the wrong way, since the two are actually best friends in real life.
* BornUnlucky: In complete contrast to Chuggaa, Jon has horrible luck, especially in Mario Party 3; and if a roll of the dice has the potential to screw him over, it's probably going to.
* CanadaEh: The other two comment on his dialect.
-->'''Chugga:''' Well, you say "zed"!\\
'''Jon:''' [[FelonyMisdemeanor *gasp* OH NO, I'M CANADIAN.]]
-->'''Chugga:''' HIDE YOUR CHILDREN!
** The latter part of the Subspace LP took place at his home in Canada. Chugga frequently states that he's in "enemy territory", and at one point Jon realizes he can kick Chugga out of his house.
** He even claims he is allowed to deport Chugga from Canada, or at least put him under citizen's arrest.
** In Western Land in ''VideoGame/MarioParty 2,'' they {{lampshade}} the rather Canadian way Jon says "No."
* CatchPhrase:
** "[[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard GAAAAAAAAME!]]"
** During ''Mario Party'', he says "PENTAGON PUNCH!" a few times, referring to Mario's rather pentagon-shaped glove.
** During ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', his main catchphrase was "Bye guys!" when he ran further from the rest of the pack.
** He says "Thanks, X!" after someone references X person or media, and sometimes says "...''Really?''" when Chugga makes a reference or joke he considers to be a bit of a stretch.
** "Only you." whenever Emile does or says something weird.
** Tended to use "Happy Birthday!" to Chugga whenever screwing him out of a collectable in the ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'' run. Well, during the period immediately surrounding Chugga's real life birthday.
** Another one used for TheComputerIsACheatingBastard scenarios is "I call shenanigans!"
** Whenever Chugga calls him out on his trolling, Jon usually replies with "what?" of "I don't know what you're talking about".
** He also has taken up the habit to respond to Chugga's "[[NoIndoorVoice WHERE YOU AT?!]]" with "[[DeadpanSnarker Over here, can't you see?]]"
** Whenever he has bad luck or Chugga has good luck (i.e. saying that they need a certain dice roll number to land on a particular space, and then getting it), he says "'''Course!''"
** "YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe" throughout ''Mario Party 3''.
** "[[FakeDifficulty Slippery shoes!]]", "[[InterfaceScrew I hit bubble!]]", and "[[BigWhat WHAT?!]]" (all angrily) throughout ''New Super Luigi U''.
** "Waluigi number X" whenever something good happens to him while playing as Waluigi, where X is a word (not necessarily a number) related to his feelings on the matter. Lampshaded in Shy Guy's Jungle Jam Part 5 when Jon says that "Everything's a number but an actual number to Waluigi."
* ClusterFBomb / PrecisionFStrike: More often than the other two main guys.
* CharacterDevelopment: He's not nearly as much of a TokenEvilTeammate, LargeHam, or DeadpanSnarker in ''Mario Party'' as he is in future playthroughs.
* DeadpanSnarker: As per his usual [=LPs=]:
-->'''Emile:''' I FEEL LIKE A MAN!
-->'''Jon:''' It's about time.
-->'''Emile:''' ...Shut up.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The reason he's trying to kill Chugga's player avatar in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' is for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=AXkR_8TIdaE Chugga throwing a pillow at him]]. [[JustifiedTrope Though he did get a black eye from it]], because it wasn't a normal, "fluffy," type of pillow. It was one of those hard cushions used for back support.
* {{Flanderization}}: In ''Mario Party'', he tends to be a jerk sometimes, but only when it's justified or PlayedForLaughs. In ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', he becomes an outright TokenEvilTeammate whose sole purpose is to kill Chugga.
* ForTheEvulz: After getting over Chugga nearly giving him a black eye in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', he's still determined to make Chugga use a continue. When asked why, he simply says "Because I can!"
* FreudianExcuse[=/=]ParentalNeglect: PlayedForLaughs in ''Mario Party 3'''s Spiny Desert.
-->'''Chugga:''' And I'm special. My mommy says so.\\
'''NCS:''' Yeah, so did mine. What a coincidence.\\
'''Jon:''' I don't think mine ever did. *{{beat}}* That explains a lot about me, actually.
* GrumpyBear: Of the three, he is the most cynical and the most prone to genuine anger. [[note]]Justified; in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHWO362MrUk one of his Twitch livestreams]], Jon explained that he's somewhat emotionally repressed in real life, and that playing video games is a good way for him to vent.[[/note]]
* HandicappedBadass:
** During the ''Smash Bros.'' filler video, he [[spoiler:beat Chugga and Tim, while using a controller he wasn't used to]].
** During the Tournament, it was revealed that he didn't get a lot of sleep and was tired beforehand. And he [[spoiler:won anyway.]]
* {{Hipster}}: Repeatedly calls himself as such. Especially in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'', where he enjoys sticking hipster glasses on everything.
* HypercompetentSidekick: During ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land''. He has to point things out to Chugga, who insists on still leading the team.
* TheLancer[=/=]TheSmartGuy
* LargeHam: Oh so much, particularly in the later playthroughs and '''especially''' in Fortune Street.
--> '''Jon''': [[BigNo NO!]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext MY HELICOPTER! WHY IS MY HELICOPTER NOT IN MY POCKET!]]
* LittleNo: He often gives one with a sigh when he fails at something in-game, especially if he was pessimistic about his prospects to start with.
* OnlySaneMan: Likes to think he is, at least.
** NotSoAboveItAll
--->'''Chugga:''' We're the horrible ones, you're the sort of normal one.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Purple Oni]]: The calm and collected one during ''Mario Party'' (most of the time). Switched to red from blue when ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' started up. Ironic, considering he plays Blue Toad. Yes, Jon not only shares this trope with another Runaway Guy, but has actually been on both ends of the trope's spectrum.
* RonTheDeathEater: In-universe during ''Kirby'', he's hit hard with this by Chugga, who thinks that ''everything'' Jon does or says is taking a shot at him. Even lampshaded in Episode 12.
* RunningGag: An occasional one is him reacting with exaggerated emotional shock when a character 'dies' in-game, especially if it's in a very cartoonish way that you would never take seriously. He does this for Wario in ''VideoGame/MarioParty 1'', Ike in ''Brawl'' and Tim in ''VideoGame/WiiParty'' ([[FireAndBrimstoneHell where the Guys react to Tim falling into a volcano as though he's died and gone to Hell]]).
* SayMyName:
** In ''Mario Party'', he does this to the game itself, as seen in CatchPhrase above.
** In Subspace Emissary, he repeatedly yells "TIM!" due to Tim's frequent screw-ups.
** In ''Fortune Street''[='=]s The Observatory, he ecstatically yells his own (character's) name when [[spoiler:Tim lands on his shop and has to pay him 841 G]], complete with the trademark [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent Mexican-ish accent]]: '''"WALUIGIIIIIII!"'''
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: His frequent "Bye guys!" moments in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''.
** Also occasionally jokingly does this later on, such as near the end of the first episode of ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'':
--> '''Chugga''': (trying to wrap up the episode) This has been...
--> '''Jon''': Me flying away. (as he does just that)
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Downplayed. He sometimes uses more complicated or specific terms and doesn't use BuffySpeak as much as the others.
** SophisticatedAsHell
* {{Sleepyhead}}: At least according to Chugga, who repeatedly claims never to have seen Jon fully awake.
* TakeThatAudience: Chugga has his fun sometimes, but Jon makes fun of the FanDumb among the Guys' fanbase more than anyone else.
* ThirdPersonPerson: When playing as Captain Falcon in ''Brawl''.
** Also to a lesser extent when playing as Waluigi in ''Fortune Street'' and ''Mario Party 3''.
* TokenEvilTeammate: During ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii''. Especially towards Chugga after the pillow incident.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Goes from somewhat annoyed with Chugga in ''Mario Party'' to outright trying to kill him (and occasionally Josh) in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''. Even more after Chugga accidentally gives him a black eye.
** He goes back to "normal" in ''Subspace Emissary'', though he still tries to annoy Chugga whenever possible.
* {{Troll}}:
** In episode 14 of Mario Bros., he actually starts being more annoying again because he hasn't "been trolling enough" apparently.
*** He tries very hard in the last videos to get Chugga killed enough times to have to use a continue. He even asked Josh and Tim to help. (It failed.)
*** He had the most teammate kills, and was Chugga's leading cause of death.
** Not to mention his tendency to bring [[BerserkButton up the]] [[{{Pikmin}} Steve]] [[MemeticMutation meme]] [[RunningGag at every available opportunity]].
** In the finale of ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'', he kills everyone else ''at the same time'' during the first part of the Bowser fight. The cutscene prevented everyone from bubbling after he pushed the switch to collapse the floor.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_therunawayguys_official_artwork__tim_s_avatar_by_acfan120-d6hi9dj_7180.png]]
-> [[ToiletHumour "In the bathroom!"]]

Another of the main three players, LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun (also just "NCS" or "Tim") is the quietest and nicest of the three. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard This usually means Chugga and Jon will beat him]], though he's not by any means bad at games. In the ''Mario Parties'', ''Mario Kart 64'' and ''Fortune Street'', he played Yoshi. In ''New Super Mario Bros Wii'' ''New Super Mario Bros U'', and ''New Super Luigi U'', he played Luigi. In ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', he played King Dedede. In ''Super Smash Bros'', he initially played Yoshi in his match against Chugga, then switched to Fox for the remainder of the video. In the TournamentArc of ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'', he played Diddy Kong. In ''Mario Power Tennis'', he played Yoshi. In ''Rayman Origins'', he played a Teensie. In ''Castle Crashers'', he played Green Knight.

Wins: ''Mario Party'' (1 out of 8 boards), ''Mario Kart 64'' (Rainbow Road), ''Fortune Street'' (Yoshi's Island), ''Wii Party'' (Swap Meet), ''Mario Party 3'' (3 out of 6 Battle Royale boards, 1 Duel board; overall Battle Royale winner), ''Mario Party 4'' (won Mega Board Mayhem)

* ApologeticAttacker
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: It's been theorized by the other Guys that the reason he keeps dying in the games is because he's not paying much attention as he plays.
** This was definitely present in the final stages of ''Subspace Emissary'', where Tim died or caused the others to die constantly. Reached its logical conclusion in this superb NonSequitur right at the end.
--> '''NCS''': [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Haha! I didn't think I got that rupee. Hahahahah!]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Despite being likely the nicest of the trio, he has his moments of awesome. He also shows this in real life, such as when he got tired of a troll starting an argument in the comments of an episode of ''[=LittleBigPlanet=]'' and stepped in to shut them up.
* TheBigGuy
* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]]: Even calmer and more careful than Jon was in ''Mario Party''. Plus, it sticks during the transition to ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''.
* ButtMonkey: Tim will usually finish last most the time, especially in ''Mario Party'' and [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Subspace Emissary]]. And he'll often have the worst luck of the three.
* CatchPhrase:
** Aside from the ones from his regular playthroughs, he has taken to usually using a simple "[[{{Angrish}} Dahh!]]" when he screws up, rather than yelling, cussing, or narrating what just happened like Chugga and Jon.
** Whenever a beach level appears, he often makes the same "Son of a beach!" pun.
** If he makes a reference that someone else points out, he has a tendency to say "I'm afraid so."
** He often responds to Chugga's [[{{Pun}} puns]] with a distinctive "[[SuckinessIsPainful Augh!]]"
* CloudCuckooLander: Somewhat. He tends to talk to himself in the background, usually while others are talking over him, so viewers will often only catch snippets of what he's saying and wonder what the hell's running through his mind. This can often lead to an OrphanedPunchline.
* ConservationOfNinjitsu: Tends to play better when everyone else has died and he's the only player left on screen.
* CrazyPrepared: Usually averted, a lot of his problems stem from lack of experience with the games the Guys are playing. ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'' is an exception though--he has played it enough to have practically memorised it (as Jon points out) and it shows.
** After faring poorly on the first two ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' games thanks to lack of experience, he practiced ''Mario Party 3'' for a year before the LP (according to Chugga). The result? [[spoiler:He won the LP]].
* CrossPlayer: In ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'', he is a Sack Girl he calls "Victorian Lady Gaga." In ''WheelOfFortune,'' he uses a female avatar. In ''RaymanOrigins,'' he starts out as a regular Teensie but eventually switches over to the Princess Teensette costume.
* DarkHorseVictory: Teased for [[VideoGame/MarioParty Yoshi's Tropical Island]], [[spoiler:but Jon won instead. Tim did, however, win earlier at Wario's Battle Canyon]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Occasionally, but definitely not as much as the others.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: If a viewer listens closely, Tim can be heard saying some weird stuff.
* {{Gasshole}}: NCS belches several times in just about every video.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] once when they pointed out that someone other than him belched.
** On Yoshi's Tropical Island, once the rest of the group got a whiff of something, he admits he'd passed gas three times by that point.
* HiddenDepths: He shows that he is very skilled at button mashing in ''Mario Party 2''. He even avoids being caught by Chugga in Crane Game, when Chugga had 40 seconds to go. This shows up again in ''Mario Party 4'' where, after Chugga talks about how he has improved his button mashing skills through training and hopes the minigame "Domination" comes up so he can demonstrate this, it does so - and he's ''still'' beaten by Tim.
** He's also turned out to be incredibly skilled at Wheel of Fortune, frequently figuring out puzzles with only a handful of letters revealed. Jon and Chuggaa have both suggested that he try auditioning for the show.
* MadLibsCatchPhrase: Eventually, he keeps making his 'in the bathroom' joke, but replacing the last word with anything relevant.
** He also does this with his "A ''bee?!''" catchphrase, switching it out with anything relevant that rhymes, such as "A ''key?!''"
* MagikarpPower: After struggling through much of the ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' run, he ends up practically ''carrying'' the team come the final stage.
** As the guys make more projects, his overall skill seems to be slowly improving. He was rather clumsy and incompetent during ''Mario Party 1'', less so in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', was able to hold his own in ''Mario Party 2'', had the fewest deaths for a decent chunk of ''Kirby's Return to Dream Land'', ended ''[=LittleBigPlanet=]'' with the second-fewest deaths... time will tell if he will be able to challenge Jon as TheAce.
* TheMedic: During ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'', he usually pops the other players' [[BottomlessPitRescueService bubbles]].
* NiceGuy: Tim is very gentle compared to the others, only stealing from the CPU during ''Mario Party''. He also never dicks over anyone else during ''NSMB Wii'', either by intentionally using them as springboards or grabbing them and throwing them down pits.
** This also adds a bit of FridgeBrilliance as to his low score on ''Mario Party''; nice guys finish last.
** He's begun abiding by this a bit less in later playthroughs; while he doesn't act like a total jerk and avoids screwing with the others when they need to use teamwork, he has stopped going easy.
** He starts to subvert this a bit in ''New Super Luigi U''.
* OnlySaneMan: Almost the entire time in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''. Also during other games, though to a somewhat lesser extent.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Any time NCS sends his voice skyrocketing for one reason or another (to the extent he outdid even ''Chugga'') usually ends up catching everyone involved off guard.
* PhraseCatcher / SayMyName: Chugga has a tendency to shout "(Go) Tim!" (or "Luigi!" in the ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' LP) whenever NCS does something noteworthy, either good or bad.
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: NCS is normally a ''very'' good gamer, having done quite a few {{Self Imposed Challenge}}s and the like [[note]]including beating {{Contra}} on Hard WITHOUT DYING[[/note]]. However, since the ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' LP started, he's been the ButtMonkey of the group, having both lost more coins than he's earned and placing in dead last ''in at least half of the boards''.
** He seems to be getting this in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii''. So far, he's [[spoiler:died on the first Goomba, lost more lives than anyone else, and was the first player to have to use a continue]]. This can mostly be attributed to his nice guy nature in refusing to use everyone else as springboards, and falling to his death ([[BewareTheNiceOnes except once]]). And as Josh Jepson pointed out in a comment, he actually feels ''he's'' doing worse than Tim because [[MercyInvincibility Tim never uses]] [[BottomlessPitRescueService the bubble mechanic]]. On the bright side, he's collected a good majority of the Star Coins so far, but the LP is too early on to say for sure if this will be a constant.
*** He does seem to be doing better than Josh now, but he's still miles behind Chugga and Jon in the long run.
** This was lampshaded in a Facebook post:
--->'''[Chuggaaconroy]:''' Tim can do 3-heart runs of [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]], beat Contra on Hard with no continues, and even beat Super Ghouls & Ghosts, yet despite all this, he does not understand the concept of [[PressXToNotDie pressing A to not die]].
** Chugga finally came out and just asked him about it, and Tim responded that it's the control sticks in general that mess him up so bad. The evidence matches up, as all the games he's pulled off incredibly well were before the advent of analogue sticks. Also, the fact that there are more players on the screen was mentioned.
** He's doing better now in ''Mario Party 2'', but unfortunately the RandomNumberGod is still causing his overall performance to suffer.
** [[spoiler:''Mario Party 3'' became his turning point, where he won three out of the six main boards.]]
* PungeonMaster: Not to the same extent as Chugga, but he does make quite a few puns. And they're generally given a warmer reception.
** His puns are generally subtler than Chugga's and he doesn't point out when he's making them, meaning that [[StealthPun quite a few of them actually slip under the other Guys' radar]], especially in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''.
* TheQuietOne: A common complaint in the earlier ''Mario Party'' videos is that the normally very talkative [=NCS=] was being far too quiet; all three contributors promised that he would come out of his shell in later videos. And so he did, but he's still definitely the quietest of the three.
** He does do a lot of talking, though, but mainly to himself in the background.
** {{Inverted}} twice in the filler videos. In the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros.'' round-robin tournament, his "Let's get ready to RUMBLLLLLLLLE!" was so loud and long that it left Jon and Chugga dumbfounded, then [[spoiler:when he won in the lost recording of ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'']], his BigYes reached [[LargeHam Chugga]] levels of loud.
*** Jon also mentions in his interview with [=LPCatchPhrases=] that [=NCS=] is a generally quiet and shy person, so part of it is probably him warming up to his new team members.
** It is mentioned in "Wheel of Fortune - Happy Holidays" that NCS' microphone is usually cranked up more than the others' in order to make up for his soft-spokenness.
*** In that same video, NCS' quiet voice actually works to his advantage: at one point he unknowingly gives away a big hint to a puzzle, but Jon and Chugga don't hear it (while the viewers can thanks to his mic) and thus screw up their attempts at solving it.
* SmugSnake: Not normally, but his loss in [[spoiler:''Fortune Street'''s Delfino Plaza]] was in part due to him being arrogant while bidding on one of Chuggaa's shops, causing him to spend too much and blow his lead.
* SomeCallMeTim: Literally.
* StoneWall: Puts a lot of emphasis on mostly Defense to his character in ''Castle Crashers''.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Tim is usually the only guy who won't resort to messing with his teammates, and helps them out when they need it, especially in New Super Mario Bros. U where he kinda functions as the OnlySaneMan.
* TookALevelInBadass:
** While still the only one to never win a match, he did KO Jon once or twice during the ''Smash Bros.'' filler video, and then [[spoiler:won Rainbow Road during the ''Mario Kart'' video]].
** He's also gotten ''loads'' better as of ''Mario Party 2''. However, due to Jon and Chugga also being a bit better and luck usually not going in his favour, this tends to not show as well as it should.
** The Mini-Game coaster showed that he got ''exceptional'' in playing the mini-games, particularly Hot Rope Jump. The challenge is that you have to jump '''fifty times''' and he did it on his first try!
** And in ''Fortune Street'', he was consistently staying in first place with a huge lead, and then, [[spoiler:he won even when Jon seriously threatened his victory. Emile did cheer Tim on and strategically put what little money he had into Tim's stocks at the end, but it was mainly Tim's own win over the usual ace of the team.]]
** He plays very well in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''. As of episode 14, he has the second least deaths and is actively gunning for the star coin lead.
** By ''Mario Party 3'', [[spoiler: he won Deep Bloober Sea due to a Hidden Block and good use of his items. He then won Spiny Desert, and as if that weren't enough, he THEN won Woody Woods by a mere 21 coins! That makes him the victor of more boards than the previous 2 ''Mario Parties'' COMBINED.]]
** He's Luigi, aka Player 1 in ''New Super Luigi U''. While Chuggaa and Jon come off as more [[HyperCompetentSidekick Hyper competent sidekicks]], it's still pretty impressive.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Chugga describes him as "a [[DeepSouth Southerner]] from [[DownOnTheFarm Wisconsin]]".

! Tropes pertaining to guest Guys:
[[folder: Josh Jepson]]
->"[[{{Mondegreen}} Geez it's thrusting!/Jesus frosting!]]"

The special guest Runaway Guy during the ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' and ''New Super Mario Bros. U'' [=LPs=], where he played Yellow Toad. He also played as Link in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' tournament, Koopa Troopa in ''Mario Power Tennis'', Luigi in ''Super Smash Bros. 64'', and Donkey Kong in ''Fortune Street''.

* BerserkButton:
** He dislikes lava.
** He quickly grows tired of people replying to his CatchPhrase "I'm LetsPlay/JoshJepson, but you knew that already" with "You're Josh Jepson?" and "Oh my god you guys, Josh Jepson's here!", as Chugga learns. [[RunningGag Several times.]]
** In the New Super Mario Bros U let's play, he quickly killed Chuggaa after Chuggaa said he thought StarTrek was crappy.
* ButtMonkey:
** During ''Mario Wii'', he is always trying to get 1-Ups, but can never get enough thanks to bad luck, dying too much, and Jon hogging them.
** In the ''Smash Bros. Brawl'' Invitational Tournament, he is the first of the guys to lose a match and be sent to the "losers" side of the bracket (shortly followed by Tim). Then, later in his match against Chugga, he almost never landed a single hit on him, with the Shy Guy racers doing most of the damage for Josh.
** Then we have the ''64'' Tournament where he loses to Tucans, who has never played before, with Luigi.
*** He also blows a 2-0 lead against SuperJeenius and gets eliminated completely.
** After starting fairly well in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'', 9 episodes in, he has almost as many deaths as everybody else put together.[[labelnote:*]]33 for Josh, 36 for everyone else combined.[[/labelnote]]
** Josh even manages to be this when he isn't even ''there'', as seen in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'' and ''VideoGame/CastleCrashers''.
* TheChick: During his time with the Guys. {{Lampshaded}} by Chugga.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Lucahjin jokes in ''Mario Power Tennis'' that his socks are the reason he ever does good. This is brought up again in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Things go his way in Episode 11. Even after that, he's able to pull off some pretty {{Badass}} stunts now and then.
* HatesBeingTouched: Implied in his introduction:
-->'''Chugga:''' I'm Chuggaaconroy with the special guest!\\
'''Josh:''' Yes... don't touch me please...
* LaserGuidedKarma: Gets a 2-0 lead over SuperJeenius in the ''Smash 64'' tournament and proceeds to brag about how much better he as at the game. [[spoiler: Ends up losing anyways]]
* LargeHam: Quite often.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: With regards to references to ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons''.
* OnlySaneMan: According to [[UnreliableNarrator himself]], anyway...
* PutOnABus: After being the guest player for the Guys' first two [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii Mario]] [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU platformer]] [=LPs=], he was not brought back for ''New Super Luigi U''.
* RedOniBlueOni: He often switches between these -- he's typically blue, but he'll go red [[LetsGetDangerous when he really needs to.]]
* SirSwearsALot: Not much worse than the other three, but is the quickest to resort to the PrecisionFStrike.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: When Chugga won't make a pun, Josh will.
* TookALevelInBadass:
** In the ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'' tournament, [[ButtMonkey he loses both his matches and is the second person eliminated.]] In the ''Mario Power Tennis'' tournament, [[spoiler: he reaches third place until being beaten by [=PurpleRodri=], who was extremely good at the game]].
** In a more directly comparable example, he did far better in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'' than he had in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii''.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Who spit in Josh's breakfast before they shot episode 9 of ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU''?
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Lava?]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Lucahjin]]
->[[EnsembleDarkhorse "Mah Balls!"]]

The Guys' first official female guest, and second guest in a main project overall (''[=LittleBigPlanet=]''). She also played as Ganondorf in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', Peach in ''Mario Power Tennis'', Jigglypuff in ''Super Smash Bros. 64'', Daisy in ''Fortune Street'', and Koopa in ''Mario Kart: Double Dash'' (on Team [=PressBallsToContinue=] with Dodger).

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: In ''[[VideoGame/ItadakiStreet Fortune Street]]'' Tim claims that she goes even further with ToiletHumour than him, although Lucah herself says he's just as bad.
* BeginnersLuck:
** Says she's trying to invoke this in ''Fortune Street'', which she's never played before. [[spoiler:She manages to finish in second place]].
** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''VideoGame/{{Burnout}} Revenge'', where she [[spoiler:has an EpicFail on the first stage but does respectably well on the next two]].
* ButtMonkey: Loses almost every time during the first round in the tournaments.
* TheCameo:
** Bizarrely manages to make one in ''Wii Party'', albeit with a male avatar, when the computer is asked to pick a random name for the Guys' fourth AI player and picks "Luca".
** In the [[VideoGame/MarioParty Minigame Island]] videos, the Guys mention seeing a drug dealer outside their window who looks suspiciously like her.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: She claims to be wearing Josh Jepson's socks, making her better at ''Mario Power Tennis''.
* CurbStompBattle: On the receiving end of two in the ''Brawl'' tournament.
* LargeHam: Seems to be a requirement.
* LovelyAssistant: Plays this role for the Guys in the second Thrown Controllers segment (Jon even calls her 'the lovely Lucahjin' in Game Show Host fashion).
* LadySwearsALot: During her first match of ''Brawl''.
* {{Noob}}: The Observatory playthrough is her first time ever playing ''Fortune Street'', and Jon acts as MrExposition to explain it to her. (They note that this is actually a good thing, since in the previous playthrough, the Guys launched straight into the game without much explanation of the rules, and many fans unfamiliar with the game got confused by its mechanics).
* OneOfTheBoys: Amusingly in contrast to previous guest Josh being treated as TheChick.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Most of the time, though Jon does call her by her real name (Reese) a few times in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet''.
* ShipTease: With LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun.
* TemptingFate: She predicted that her first death in ''Brawl'' would be within seconds of the start of the match.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch
* ToiletHumour: She's known for making raunchy jokes, some of which involve bathroom humor.
* TraumaCongaLine:
** In the ''Brawl'' tournament, she loses two battles in a row, both of which are curb-stomps, and to Lucas, a character she apparently hates.
** And again in the ''Smash 64'' tournament, where she uses Jigglypuff and gets absolutely destroyed in her first match, then loses to Donnabellez in the loser's bracket after stalling for a good few minutes (although they were both apparently a tad drunk at the time).
[[/folder]]

[[folder: [=SuperJeenius=]]]

Became the Guys' third main guest when he joined their LP of ''Castle Crashers''. He also played as Zelda/Sheik in ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', Mario in ''Super Smash Bros. 64'', and Stella in two ''Fortune Street'' boards.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: His in-game nickname in ''Brawl'', ωΣΜΗΘ, at least to Jon.
* BigNo: A humorous DoubleSubversion during ''Fortune Street'''s Delfino Plaza:
--> ''*Chugga's Venture Card forces all other players to only move one space on their next turn*''
--> '''SJ:''' OH NOOOOO--Actually, that's... NOOOOOOOO!
* ButtMonkey: Seems to be something of a tradition for the Guys' guests...
* CripplingOverspecialisation: Comes back to bite him in ''Castle Crashers'' after he puts all his levelling points into strength, and ends up dying a lot in episode 5 due to low defence.
* CrossPlayer: Played as Zelda/Shiek during the [[SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]] Tournament.
* DeadpanSnarker: Jon even points out that he has less of a need to say anything to Chuggaa with Super Jeenius around.
* FountainOfMemes: InUniverse, half his conversations are references to memes.
* GlassCannon: Puts all of his skill points in strength in ''Castle Crashers''... it doesn't [[CripplingOverspecialisation really work out.]]
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:The only guest competitor to knock out one of the Guys in the first round (during the ''Brawl'' tournament)]].
* {{Irony}}: He was the one to suggest they do ''Castle Crashers'', but turned out to be probably the least good at the game, as pointed out in episode 5.
* LargeHam: At times, especially in his second battle.
* LetsGetDangerous: He starts out his ''Brawl'' matches as Zelda and plays rather poorly. However, when he switches to Sheik, he starts kicking ass.
** Happens again in the ''Smash 64'' tournament, where JoshJepson is winning by two lives but Jake pulls it out in the end.
* NoodleIncident: Parodied, regarding a bondage incident.
* OnlySaneMan: In full effect during the Delfino Plaza board in Fortune Street.
* PrecisionFStrike
* PreMortemOneLiner: Does a couple to Chugga, rather calmly.
--> Goodbye. Nice knowing you.
** Later does some to [=SyKhotic=], though since he ends up losing anyway, they're more of a PreAssKickingOneLiner.
* TemptingFate: Gets hit with Mario's [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] after someone pointing out how no one went for the Smash Ball.
* {{Troll}}: Kind of a mixture between Chugga's style of trolling and Jon's.
* VillainousBreakdown: Though not a villain, he came off as rather upset by losing.
* WorthyOpponent: Jon sees him as this during the ''Brawl'' tournament, even though they never fight each other.
[[/folder]]

!Tropes pertaining to Multi-Player Guests:

!!LetsPlay/{{Donnabellez}} (played Yoshi in SSBB, Kirby in SSB)

* {{Adorkable}}: Much like in her Let's Plays.
* BigNo: A milder version when she gets beaten.
* ButtMonkey: Alongside Josh, he and she are both the first losers of the entire tournament.
* CutenessProximity: She chooses Yoshi and Kirby for the two tournaments and sounds gleeful when referring to them.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: She lost a stock after accidentally using one of her own techniques to fall into a pit on the stage.
* SouthernBelle: She kind of has that accent.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With LetsPlay/AttackingTucans in their ''Smash 64'' match.


!![=ALoyalGamer=] (played Marth in SSBB, played Mario in Mario Power Tennis)

* CaptainOblivious: Seemed to know the least about ''Brawl''.
* CurbstompBattle: Loses his tennis match against [=PurpleRodri=] quickly enough that they still had time to include it in the same video as Josh and Lucah's incredibly long match.
* TheQuietOne: The least vocal guest during the SSBB tournament.
* TheStoic: Not entirely, but definitely the closest example so far.
* TemptingFate: [[spoiler:How he ultimately loses]].
* WorthyOpponent: To Jon.


!!LetsPlay/{{Diabetus}} (played Mario in SSBB and again in Mario Kart DD on Team LetsPlay/{{Retsupurae}} with LetsPlay/SlowBeef)

* TheAce: Somewhat; [[spoiler:he made it to the semi-finals through the loser's bracket and was [[HeroKiller responsible for the elimination of two main Guys]], so he definitely has enough skill to be classified as this.]]
* BerserkButton: He freaks out when he finds out the guys had a Battletoads event during Thrown Controllers and wasn't told.
* CrystalDragonJesus: Chugga regards him as "The Jesus of Let's Playing" (as LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} is the God of Let's Playing).
* DeadpanSnarker: Given [[WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} what he's made himself known for]], it's not a surprise.
* {{Foreshadowing}} / LyingCreator: The Guys mentioned at one point that they'd meet up with him, and later it was confirmed he would not be their guest player. And here he is now. Not lying ''per se'', but it was tricky.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: He keeps getting invested in one of these (the [[IceClimber polar bear]] on the Ice Climbers' stage).
* HandicappedBadass: Does well in the tournament, despite being sleepy.
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller: Defeats Chuggaaconroy for good in sudden death, even after Chugga was buying himself time to kill him there first, and previously Diabetus had knocked Tim out of the Tournament. He's responsible for two out of three Runaway Guys losing the tournament]].
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Loses a life ([[spoiler:and his first match]]) by trying to grab a Bob-Omb.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Cracked a few during his second match.
* TheLancer: To LetsPlay/SlowBeef. As shown during the MKDD tournament.
* PyrrhicVictory: Realizes that the cost of winning another match means he'd have to stay awake late at night for even longer.
* TheQuietOne: Not as much as [=ALoyalGamer=], but more than other guest fighters, he likes to be quiet and focus on playing. He eventually makes some jokes and puns starting with his second match. In the MKDD tournament, he is by far the quietest person in his race as [[LargeHam Slowbeef]] spends most of their turn yelling.
* RunningGag: Mentioning that he's sleepy and that he's playing while asleep.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Fans were surprised when they mentioned he would potentially join the Guys in their fourth Let's Play.

!![[LetsPlay/SKArmedageddon SyKhotic]] (played Lucas in SSBB)

* TheAce: [[spoiler:Aside from Jon, he is the only competitor to have never lost a match. At least until he fought Jon. Twice.]]
* CanadaEh: Like Jon, he hails from Canada
* CurbStompBattle: On the giving end, to [[spoiler:Lucahjin]]. Of course, there is a lampshade hung.
** And later, [[spoiler:on the receiving end from Jon. Twice.]]
* FlatWhat: See MindScrew below.
* IHaveManyNames: He calls himself several different names during the match.
* MindScrew: In-universe; considers [=SuperJeenius's=] dodging of the lava wall in Norfair to be this, if his flabbergasted reaction is anything to go by.
--> '''[=SyKhotic=]''': [[FlatWhat What.]]
--> '''[=SuperJeenius=]''': [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Problem?]]
* TheQuietOne: Doesn't say much in his first or third battle, but opened up more in the second.
* RunningGag: Introducing himself by several different names (all of which actually apply to him) at the start of his battles.

!![=CloudFangLP=] (Played Shy Guy in Mario Power Tennis, played Luigi in MKDD, on Team Curly Mustaches with [=GaiaCrusher9=])

* AscendedFanboy: He went from uploading clips of the Guys' videos, to participating in one of them, though he did already have his own Let's Plays.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: Defeats NCS in the first round of Mario Power Tennis.]]

!![=PurpleRodri=] (Played Daisy in Mario Power Tennis, Kirby in SSB, Koopa in MKDD, on Team Purple Pwniez with [=SullyPwnz=])

* TheAce: [[spoiler: Reaches second place and comes exceptionally close to beating Chugga, who won his previous matches via CurbStompBattle.]]
** Later, during the ''Smash 64'' tournament, [[spoiler: He manages to reach the Winners Semifinals, though it may or may not count since several of his wins had him relying on in-game items.]]
** And in the ''Mario Kart Double Dash'' tournament, [[spoiler: He makes it to the semi-finals losing to the Koopa Krew.]]
* CrossPlayer: Played as Daisy in the tennis tournament.
* CurbStompBattle: Delivers one unto [=ALoyalGamer=] in their tennis match.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: Was responsible for LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun's defeat in the Winner's Bracket of the ''Smash 64'' tournament.]]
* LesYay / CrackPairing: Invoked in the joke that he's not only with Daisy, but that he's also female and with Daisy.
* PersonAsVerb: Chugga and Josh say, "Ready to Rodri."

!![[WebVideo/IsItAGoodIdeaToMicrowaveThis Jon Paula]] (Played Mario in Mario Power Tennis)

* DeadpanSnarker: Quite a bit in his match. For example, after someone points out how [[LetsPlay/ProtonJon Jon]] is Luigi and [[NamesTheSame Jon (himself)]] is Mario:
--> '''JP''': Yeah, that makes sense.
* FanNickname: In-universe; calls the "Come on!" dance Luigi ([=ProtonJon=]) does the [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext "sausage dance"]].
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Himself. All of the tennis players are in the same room, and he shouts during matches he's not involved with frequently, as opposed to most everyone else being silent.
* HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler: Finishes second in the Bomberman: Live Tournament losing only to Jon, despite never having played the game before.]]
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: He's the first guest who isn't known for Let's Playing, but for IsItAGoodIdeaToMicrowaveThis. Although Jon does Let's Plays too.
* TookALevelInBadass: Goes from [[spoiler: losing the first round in Mario Power Tennis]] to [[spoiler: finishing second in Bomberman: Live.]]

!!LetsPlay/{{AttackingTucans}} (played Link in SSB)

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Even better at being a ManChild than Chugga, who comes off as staid and restrained compared to him.
* BeginnersLuck: Possibly. He does rather well in ''Smash 64'' for someone who's never played the game before (although he has played the others in the series).
* HandicappedBadass: In ''Smash 64'', he claims to have never played the game before. In his match against Josh, [[spoiler:he wins without losing a single life.]]
* LargeHam: Especially in the first round of the ''Smash 64'' tournament.
* NoIndoorVoice: He can take it all the way up into the red.
* SirSwearsALot: As Chugga put it: "In case you haven't guessed, Tyler is very vulgar."
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Throwing Your Bat Always Works]]: [[spoiler: How he wins against Josh]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Donnabellez during their match. Jon is shocked by how they treat each other. Anybody who's seen Super Mario Galaxy Versus is not.

!!Mal (played Pikachu in SSB, Toadette/Paratroopa in MKDD, on Team Stephenplays with Stephen)

!!LetsPlay/StephenPlays (played Ness in SSB, Baby Luigi in MKDD, on Team Stephenplays with Mal)
* TookALevelInBadass: He loses the first round of ''Smash 64''. After that, he keeps on winning and manages to make it to the finals of the loser bracket before being beaten by Pcull. Keep in mind that [[TheAce Jon]] considers Pcull a WorthyOpponent so that really says how impressive Stephen did.
* UnfitForGreatness: In ''Double Dash'' he never lets Mal drive. The reason for this becomes clear in a later video series he does with her where they play versus matches of different ''Mario Kart'' games - Stephen thought he was better than Mal at ''Double Dash''. As that video series shows, [[CurbStompBattle he was]] [[IWasBeatenByAGirl wrong]].

!!Tyler (LetsPlay/WiiRikeToPray) (played Pikachu in SSB)
* TheAce: [[spoiler:He went undefeated during all the tournament, he was the responsible of knocking out two of the three main Guys, and additionally, he won the ''Smash 64'' Tournament. A first in TRG, where someone else other than the main Guys ended victorious in a tournament]].
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller: Defeats Chuggaa, then Jon in both the Winners Bracket finals and in the Finals rematch]].
* HonorBeforeReason: During his match with Jon, he manages to get the Hammer which would have given him a clear advantage, but intentionally waits until the powerup times out so he can fight Jon fair and square. [[spoiler: He wins anyway.]]

!!Tyson (LetsPlay/WiiRikeToPray) (played Pikachu in SSB)

!!Spencer (LetsPlay/WiiRikeToPray) (played Captain Falcon in SSB)

!!Chris (LetsPlay/WiiRikeToPray) (played Fox [=McCloud=] in SSB)

!!LetsPlay/{{Pcull44444}} (played Ness in SSB)
* {{Badass}}: His only loss in the ''64'' tournament is to [[TheAce Jon.]] Jon even considers him a WorthyOpponent.
* {{Troll}}: Part of his commentary style. In particular, when it's pointed out that a certain randomly chosen stage keeps showing up in fights with Pcull (one where he keeps using the mechanics of the stage and Ness' abilities to help him win) he claims that he's hacked the game to make it happen.
* WorthyOpponent: To Jon

!!LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} (Played Luigi in MKDD, on Team WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} with LetsPlay/{{Diabetus}})
* BigGood: Of the Let's Play Community.
* IHaveManyNames: In PAX East 2012, he claimed to be Oyster from Something Awful. And in PAX Prime 2014, he said he was DarkSydePhil before saying he wasn't.
* LargeHam[=/=]NoIndoorVoice: By far the loudest person in their races. He even starts shouting to the rooms next door when they point out how loud he's being.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: When racing in Mario Kart Double Dash during Thrown Controllers, he goes the wrong way and pretends he has no idea what he's doing.
* SpecialGuest: Appeared in two Thrown Controllers panels before appearing in the MarioKart Double Dash Tag Team Tournament.
* WellDoneSonGuy: After their races against Team 41 Pimps is over, Slowbeef is heard congratulating the other team while they can barely be heard saying how excited they were to finally meet him.

!!LetsPlay/{{MasaeAnela}} (played Koopa in MKDD, on Team Streetpassers with LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}, appeared as guest in Burnout Revenge, played Carver in Fortune Street: Mt. Magmageddon)

* BirdsOfAFeather: With Chuggaaconroy, which, of course, leads to ShipTease.
* CrossPlayer: Plays as [[VideoGame/DragonQuestVI Carver]] in ''Fortune Street''.
* GenkiGirl
* LargeHam: She gets really loud in the Double Dash tournament.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Claims to be manlier than Chugga.
* {{Tomboy}}: Jon observes that she has better muscle definition and could easily beat Chugga in a fistfight. [[BadassAdorable She's also a blackbelt in karate.]]
** Taken UpToEleven in ''Fortune Street'' where she plays as Carver, whom the Guys portray with a TestosteronePoisoning persona.

!![=KoopaKungFu=] (Played Diddy Kong in MKDD, on Team Koopa Krew with [=SirEnobMort=])
* TheAce: [[spoiler: Wins the entire Double Dash Tournament after a close final battle.]]
* {{Irony}}: Neither [=SirEnobmort=] or him plays as Koopa or Paratroopa in their races. Though it's [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] [[spoiler: in the final round.]]
* LargeHam: Both his partner and him get pretty rowdy when [[spoiler: they face each other in the finals.]]
* WorthyOpponent: To the Purple Pwnies and [[spoiler:[=SirEnobmort=]]].
