The Main 7
Matt is one of the founding members of Adamant Ditto and has been gaming since the age of three. He’s a big fan of everything from Mario to Sonic to Twisted Metal. He handles a lot of the editing, uploading and technical stuff for the group and is always anxious to see where the road takes us. He also sometimes brings his beautiful girlfriend, Carissa, along with him even though she doesn't like video games all that much. She is his future after all so better break her in somehow! Turn-ons include long walks on the beach and pancakes. Turn-offs include Yanma, Sonic Chronicles and Eggman Nega.

Kyle is a college grad and can’t get anyone to let him put his BA to good use. He grew up close enough to L.A. to say he grew up in L.A. and never owned a video game system until the Gamecube.

Phil is the [self-proclaimed] baddest son of a bitch that ever lived, but the only evidence he presents to support this theory are that he’s British and likes video games.

Tim is a phantom of Adamant Ditto who appears once in a blue moon. His hobbies include the usual things of playing video games, drawing, and writing other various stuff. His favorite games are pretty much everything in the Mario and Kirby franchises to the point of obsession, the Pokemon franchise, Kid Icarus Uprising, and strangely Pac-Man 2 for SNES. Whenever he appears, expect him to be rude and very incomprehensible.
- The Chew Toy
- Cloud Cuckoolander
- Pet the Dog: Throughout Kirby's Epic Yarn, he constantly annoys Matt to get unlock a secret level where you can fight Space Kracko. Matt ignores him, and skips over that part of the game.

David is a writer and theoretical satirist who lives in Florida/New York/Massachusetts/Along the eastern seaboard. Though he's known to play a current-gen game when it strikes his fancy, you can usually find him sifting through boxes at the local thrift store for retro stuff. When the planets align on a clear Leap Day at 8:13 pm sharp, his horrible computer may let him join in on the AD conversation, but he's usually stuck doing some boring real-world crap you should pity him for.
Carissa is Matt’s lovely girlfriend who shows up from time to time and even plays some games with the group. Though not much of a gamer herself, she likes to be involved with things enjoys and he likely tries to get her involved more than she does. When it comes to games she does enjoy, she can likely kick your butt at Tetris and is also quite good at other puzzle games like Bejeweled and Puzzle Bobble. Her favorite game series of all time is The Sims and if that game could be beat, she probably would have done a LTTA of it already. She might be quiet in the videos but don’t let it fool you, when the topic switches to something she loves, like movies or Sims, she has a lot to say.

Viper was around when Adamant Ditto was founded, but had a lot going on in her life and couldn't keep up with the awesome that was happening.

Viper is the girly-est nerd on the planet, and has been gaming since she had a Sega Genesis in pre-school.
