open/close all folders
Johnny GomezOne half of the show's commentary team. The "Straight Man" of the group, Johnny is more professional than his co-host Nick Diamond, and is constantly calling him out for his crazy behavior and zany schemes. Has fought and killed Sam Donaldson along with Nick Diamond.
- Catch Phrase / Signing Off Catch Phrase:"Good fight, good night!"
- Combat Commentator
- Deadpan Snarker: To Nick whenever the latter acts oddly.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Nick's red.
- The Straight Man
Nick DiamondThe other commentator. Nick is far more eccentric than Johnny is, and has been shown to be an alcoholic and a divorced father of one. Nick is constantly getting himself into trouble, and has participated in (and won) Deathmatches against Zatar the Alien, The Satyr, and Sam Donaldson (the last one with the aid of Johnny). Has an intense hatred of Debbie Matenopoulos.
- Badass: Currently has three Death Match victories to his name, despite being an announcer.
- Berserk Button: Zatar pushed this when he kills Peter Mayhew and Mark Hamill...and paid for it.
- Brainwashing for the Greater Good: In the "Turn On Your TV Day" episode, Nick kidnapped a book lover and TV hater who attempted to storm the announcers' booth, then tortured him into watching and enjoying television and learning to hate reading. Nick seems to think it's for the greater good, at least; Johnny is quick to remind everyone that he had no part in it.
- Butt Monkey: Whenever something goes horribly awry, expect him to usually be the one at the receiving end of it.
- This is taken to such an extreme that, on one of the few episodes where he has a normal day where nothing bad happens to him, Johnny Gomez is freaking terrified to be around him, donning a helmet and drinking heavily to calm his nerves, thinking that when something eventually does happen to Nick, it'll be so big that he'll get caught in the crossfire. He only calms down at the very end when Nick is abducted by aliens to be anally probed.
- Combat Commentator
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite his cowardly, weasily ways, he has several deathmatch victories under his belt, most noteably against Zatar the alien and a satyr he fought in Rome during a time travel adventure.
- The Lancer: Often to the more laid back Johnny.
- Mushroom Samba: During his coma arc, when Nick Jr. accidentally turns up the morphine.
- Noodle Incident:Johnny: (during phone call) Good GOD! That's HORRIBLE!Nick: If that's the A.S.P.C.A., I'm not here.
- Put on a Bus: The coma story arc.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Johnny's blue.
Mills LaneThe referee. He is a grumpy old man who has a very laissez-faire attitude toward the rules, and serves mainly to open the fight and declare the winner once somebody is dead. Was voiced by himself during the show's original run, but couldn't return when the show was Un-Canceled due to the fact that he had suffered a stroke. He has fought and killed Judge Judy and Jesse Camp (both times in matches he wasn't supposed to be a part of) in the Deathmatch ring.
- As Himself
- The Alcoholic: Implied in one episode that he dulls the annoyances of the job with booze.
- Badass: Aside from him being able to corral a ring full of blood thirsty celebrities, Mills is a former Olympic boxer and Marine, which comes in handy in his fight with Judge Judy.
- Catch phrases:"Let's get it on!" — at the start of each match"I'll allow it!" — whenever a fighter complains that the other person is breaking the rules"The winner is... <winner's name here>!" or "<winner's name here> is the winner!" — at the end of each match
- Cool Old Guy
- I'm a Humanitarian: There are several instances where he's seen eating human flesh. The Emeril Legasse vs. The Two Fat Ladies fight being one of them. Shortly after the expulsion, Austin informs Lane that the chips he was eating were actually the charred remains of Keri Russell, which didn't faze him.
- Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Mentions that his mother traded him for a pair of underwear and a cigarette when he was 2.
- The Smart Guy: It comes with the territory of being a judge and a referee.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite the ridiculous over the top concept of the Deathmatch, he will always call a match fairly, and also enforces a ban of firearms during the matches, barring special circumstances.
- Retired Badass: As he shares the real life Mills Lane's history, he's a retired welterweight boxer and former U.S Marine.
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: As long as he doesn't physically see her. As mentioned above, he fought Judge Judy blindfolded and won.
Stacy CornbredCDM's first interviewer, and without a doubt the most professional of the three. Known for her sunny outlook and for being the only interviewer that both Johnny and Nick liked (it's even implied that she and Johnny once dated). In the second season, she died of spontaneous human combustion after her voice actress left the show. She later re-appeared as a zombie, trying to take her job back from Debbie, only to be messily defeated.
- Back from the Dead: In Halloween Episode II.
- Came Back Wrong: Type III, but only towards Debbie Matenopolous.
- The Chick
- Killed Off for Real: Twice!
- McLeaned: The reason for the above trope was because her voice actress left the show.
- Mirror Scare: Does this to Debbie in Halloween Episode II.
- No Zombie Cannibals: Averted after being rammed through a door by Debbie.
- She's Got Legs
- Spontaneous Human Combustion: How she dies the first time.
- The Rival: To Debbie Matenopoulos.
- Zombie Apocalypse: Tries to start one to get revenge on Debbie.
Debbie MatenopoulosFormerly of The View, Debbie was brought in as the new interviewer after Stacy died. She was far less professional than Stacy was, often acting in a ditzy manner and asking combatants whatever came to her mind. She and Nick Diamond have an extreme dislike of one another while she and Johnny date for a brief period during the show. She defeated the zombie Stacy Cornbred in one episode. Debbie was voiced by herself.
- As Herself: The only female interviewer to actually be a celebrity.
- Beauty Mark: Above her lip.
- The Ditz
- Jerkass: When she started out, she was pretty rude to the staff (especially Nick) and the celebrities. She mellowed out a bit as time went on, however.
- Ms. Fanservice
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Averted. Her pregnancy story arc may give off shades of this, but she wasn't actually pregnant when it was written.
- Replacement Scrappy: For Stacy Cornbred fans. She's also treated as this in-universe by Nick.
- Ship Tease: Often with Johnny Gomez. It's even hinted that he's her baby's father.
- Put on a Bus: Like Stone Cold, she does not appear in the reboot.
- This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: When she finishes off Stacy Cornbred's zombie.Debbie: Now stay dead, bitch.
Tally WongThe new interviewer that was brought in when the show was Un-Cancelled. Although more intelligent than Debbie, Tally is every bit as unprofessional, albeit in a different manner. She is extremely self-centered, and likes to insult the celebrities and the hosts. Not surprisingly, she and Johnny Gomez quickly became enemies.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: A big one. Despite her wide smile for the camera, she's pretty dismissive towards the celebrities she interviews at times, and is very disrespectful towards Johnny.
- Catch Phrase: "What are you gonna do, bring back Stacy Cornbred?"
- Evil Counterpart: To Stacy Cornbred. Whereas Stacy was genuinely courteous and got along with the staff fairly well, Tally can come across as disingenuous and even insulting in her demeanour, and is openly spiteful of both Johnny Gomez and Stacy Cornbred.
- Jerkass: Even moreso than Debbie!
- Replacement Scrappy: Lampshaded in-universe.
- Sleeping with the Boss: Johnny and Nick suspected she was doing this, due to all the special privileges she was getting. Whether she was or not was never proven.
- Small Name, Big Ego
- As Himself
- Authority Equals Asskicking: When Stone Cold tells you to do something, you damn well better do it.
- Bald of Awesome: Along with Mills Lane.
- Berserk Button: When Tom Cruise and Bruce Willis were fighting over who cushioned the fall from a little girl (each one pulling one of her arms) Stone Cold personally bashed their skulls together. He then got to go clubbing with Nicole Kidman and Demi Moore.
- He's fairly slow to anger, but do NOT insult him, he will kick your ass for it. He once threw Nick off the announcers booth because he called him a "sweaty gorilla".
- The Big Guy
- Friend to All Children: (see above)
- Gadgeteer Genius
- Genius Bruiser
- Put on a Bus: In the reboot.
- Southern-Fried Genius
Charles Manson, Hanson and the Spice Girls (in a match that he wasn't even a part of), Garth Brooks, and Ricky Martin, and has performed his music on the show. He voiced himself in two of the episodes that he appeared in, and has not appeared since the show was Un-Cancelled.
- Affably Evil: When he's in the ring, he's absolutely ruthless. Whenever he's being interviewed, he's rather polite and is on quite friendly terms with Nick and Johnny.
- But he really hates Hanson and the Spice Girls.
- Badass: Well he DOES hold the record for the most celebrity kills by a single person after all.
- Card-Carrying Villain: The most evil man in America.
- Signature/Finishing Move: The Tunisian Skeleton Pull Of Death. It worked perfectly against Charles Manson, but when it backfired against Ricky Martin, Marilyn's hand came to life inside Ricky and still finished the job anyway.
- The Voiceless: He didn't speak in the pilot short.
Zatar the AlienA green, one-eyed alien who has showed up several times to wreak havoc on the show. In his appearances, he has killed CÚline Dion (after possessing her), Keith Flint, Mark Hamill and Peter Mayhew, before he was finally killed by a pissed-off Nick Diamond. A later episode showed that he was Not Quite Dead, and he blew up the Deathmatch arena with an Independence Day-style laser blast.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In his second appearance, he tells Johnny and Nick he plans to get them until he's distracted by an Ultraman T-shirt he wants to buy.
- Go-Karting with Bowser: Before he blew up the arena, he spends his time there buying collectibles and memorabilia.
Marv AlbertThe show's first commentator, who only appeared in the original Cartoon Sushi short and in the "Deathbowl '98" Super Bowl special. Best known for his coverage of the fight between Pamela Anderson and RuPaul, in which he did nothing but endlessly rewind a clip of Pamela's jiggling breast implants. Was voiced by himself.
Don KingAppeared in several episodes of the first season, where he would be killed as a Running Gag, only to return in the next episode. Later on, in season 2, he would partake in a genuine Deathmatch, fighting (and losing to) Donald Trump.
- Loony Fan: He's a big fan of fights.
The Masked ManA mysterious man in a mask who, during two Season 5 episodes, would run into the ring and start beating up whoever was winning the fight. It was very heavily implied that he was Michael Jackson.Ru Paul and Tommy Lee, but lost a match against Heather Locklear.
- Action Girl: Not so much at first, but she became a great fighter once she got the hang of it.
- Boobs of Steel: The bustiest woman on the show, also has the best winning record for women combatants.Marv Albert: Let's see it again!
- Berserk Button: Things involving Tommy Lee. At first it was to protect him. Pam fought against Ru Paul because s/he was hitting on Tommy. In her next fight, she kicked Heather Locklear's ass for trying to kill Tommy. Eventually, Pam's berserk button became Tommy himself; she was upset that he had the nerve to challenge her to a deathmatch, and then he spent the fight making jokes about her. SHE KICKED HIS ASS INTO NEXT WEEK.
- Ms. Fanservice: It's Pamela Anderson. Of cource she fills this role.
