Adamant Ditto is a collaborative gaming channel. They make several different videos, but their main feature are their [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]], which they refer to as Let's Try that Again, due to the fact that they are terrible at games and abuse save states. Other features are reviews, Pokémon battles, countdowns, podcasts, and more.

Adamant Ditto is made up of several members. These members include:

Active members:

* Matt: A founding member. He's in almost every video, does most of the editing, recording, let's plays, etc.. Also prone to musical outbursts.
* Ricky: A founding member. He appears just as frequently as Matt, and he knows A LOT about games.
* Don: Also does some technical help with Adamant Ditto, his main character trait is trolling the shit out of everyone.
* Jess: The main female in the group. She doesn't talk much, and laughs a lot. The guys say they keep her around because she "makes them feel funny."
* Josh: The face of Adamant Ditto. He makes terrible jokes, and then constantly repeats them. According to Ricky, "He's the funniest, yet the least funny of them".
* Phil: Phil is, according to everyone else, the best of AD at video games. Plus, he's British.
* Tim: The "phantom" of Adamant Ditto. Whenever he does show up though, expect him to be incomprehensible.
* David: The oldest member of Adamant Ditto, often said to be the "most offensive" in terms of jokes.
* Carissa: Matt's girlfriend. Not really much of a gamer, but she does play a few games with Matt. According to Matt of all people, she is secretly in love with Josh.
* Amanda: Originally a fan of the show. Don's girlfriend.

Others have moved on to their own projects, but still pop in every now and then to visit.

Inactive members:

* Kyle: A founding member. Sort of like the group's straight man. Except when he trolls in Portal 2.
* Steven: An artist, animator, and gamer. When he's not messing around with AD, he's making art on his channel, [[https://www.youtube.com/user/StevRayBro StevRayBro]]
* Viper: She did help found the channel, but appears the least of them all. This is because, sadly, she has a life. She is the self-proclaimed girliest nerd ever.

** Kyle's eyes turn red if you talk about Angry Birds
** Jess wants to set the Pokemon Gothitelle on fire.

-->'''Don''': Yes.
-->'''Matt''': Move over Josh.

** And again in a random Pokemon battle:
-->'''David''': Beautifly is a thing?
-->'''Ricky''': Yeah, Beautifly. It evolves from, uh, one of the 'coons. (Silcoon or Cascoon)

-->'''Ricky''': I don't know the difference between the goddamn 'coons. It's one of 'em.
-->'''David''': This is not helping.

** Several let's try that agains were lost due to computer problems.
** In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Carissa calls Matt via phone, and Matt can't figure out how to mute his mic in time. He didn't even cut it out in post-production.
** In The-Thousand Year Door, Carissa wanted to be in a few videos, so Matt used a mic that can record both their audio. Unfortunately, Matt didn't make sure that it was compatible with the streaming program. Basically, it there were a few videos of the group talking to someone who wasn't there. Matt did re-record himself in post, though.
** While not a technical difficulty, at the end of their Q&A, Kyle falls asleep, and no one wants to kick him from the call. Hilarity ensues.
