!!Harley Morenstein
The co-creator of ''Epic Meal Time'' along with Sterling Toth, who operates the cameras. Once a substitute teacher from Montreal, a web video about a Fast Food Pizza went viral, and spawned a monster. He also now has a personal vlog channel that serves as a part day in the life, part behind the scenes for Epic Meal Time.

* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: He's the [=SOWuss BOWuss=].
* BadassBeard
* BadassInCharge
* CanadaEh: This applies to him more than any other cast member.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Many. ''Many.''

!!Muscles Glasses[[note]]Alex Perrault[[/note]]
A local personal trainer in Montreal, he is the strong, silent type with the ever-present aviator sunglasses. Most episodes he appears in end with him demolishing the remainder of that episode's creation solo. He also indiscriminately drinks the most liquor. Perrault has parted ways with the show over a business dispute with Harley.

* AwesomeMcCoolname
* TheBigGuy
* BreakoutCharacter: So much that a new spin-off series, TheLegendOfMusclesGlasses, was announced in August 2013.
* {{Catchphrase}}: His FlippingTheBird is a non-verbal catchphrase.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He was a massive goofball early in the show.
* CoolShades
* FlippingTheBird
* LegacyCharacter: As [[WordOfGod told by Harley in a behind-the-scenes video]], the character of Muscles Glasses (already inspired by Harley's experience with ''Terminator 2'', is going to be based on the titular glasses falling to Earth in various times and locations. ''The Legend Of Muscles Glasses'' is supposed to open up other opportunities for others to acquire the "beacon of badassery" that is the MG legacy.
* LimitedWardrobe: Everyone usually wears T-shirts from TheMerch, but Muscles Glasses is the only one to always wear the same shirt in every video ("[=BaconStrips&BaconStrips&BaconStrips&...=]"). Although sometimes he may wear the dark grey version of the same shirt, the light grey version is definitely his IconicOutfit.
* PutOnABus: Inverted. The others have moved to LA, but he stayed in Canada to finish his degree. Has possibly left the show for good due to a dispute with Harley over "broken promises" related to ownership of the show's production company.
* RunningGag: Downing bizarre shots (with two of the standouts being Jack Daniels & ''breast milk'' and Tyler's "Jack and Yolk"... topped off with bacon salt).
* SleevesAreForWimps
* TheBusCameBack: He comes back for the five year anniversary of Epic Meal Time. Of course, [[TheOtherDarrin it's a completely different person]], but since Muscles Glasses is a LegacyCharacter (or possibly a sentient pair of glasses possessing a series of host bodies) it's somewhat justified.
* TheStoic
* TastesLikePurple: "Tastes like crazy... alcohol... Loko... pig. Tastes like alcohol pig! Tastes like crazy alcohol rainbow pig! [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Tastes like... crazy alcohol rainbow pig.]] [[spoiler:It was noted in a Throwback Thursday version of the Chili Four Loko video that MG was in the midst of a full psychotic episode (the mix of alcohol and Four Loko essentially drove him nuts)]].

!!Epic Mook[[note]]Josh Elkin[[/note]]
One of the cooking experts of the show and frequent host of ''Handle It.'' He left the show to pursue a solo career on his own Website/YouTube channel and his TV show ''Sugar Showdown.''

* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: See {{Catchphrase}}.
* BadassMustache[=/=]BadassBeard: He changes his facial hair fairly often.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "If you ain't speakin' that Gwopanese, you ain't speakin' my [=LANGuage=]!"
* ChefOfIron
* {{Corpsing}}: Is often unable to take Harley's over the top behaviour and play it straight.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Hosts a lot of the "Handle It" episodes.
* FascinatingEyebrow: He frequently does this. His logo on the Throwback Thursday series is the word "Mook" in Impact font with these over the o's.
* KnifeNut: He can teach Gwopanese with a knife.
* TheLancer: While Harley hosts the show, Mook does most of the cooking.
* SupremeChef

!!Tyler![[note]]Tyler Lemco[[/note]]
The resident CloudCuckoolander, he can usually be seen goofing around with the camera or ingredients. But he is just as eager to eat the meals as anyone else present. Lemco has left the show for undisclosed reasons and now rights for ''Playboy.''
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared after the episode ''Meat Cake'' Apparently, like Muscles Glasses, he left over various reasons.
* LuckyCharmsTitle: His name is always spelled with an ! at the end, even on the website.
* ManChild
* TheSmartGuy: While he acts like a doofus on-camera, he's actually the one that calculates the calorie tracker.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: At the beginning of New Year's Hangover Cure, Harley comes out to find Tyler face down in the pool. He wakes right up, and Harley tells him they were out for ''three days''.

!!Prince Atari[[note]]Ameer Atari[[/note]]
The other cooking expert of the show, and after Elkin left, he became the head cook of both Epic Meal Time and Handle It.
* CloudCuckooLander: Took over Tyler's role after he left the show, but based on Harley;s personal vlogs he, uh, he's a little strange.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: Besides the group's hatred for fruits and vegetables, Prince Atari also can't stand eggs unless they're in a baked good.
* KidAppealCharacter
* SpeechImpediment: Has a slight, but still noticeable, lisp.
* SupremeChef: When Josh Elkin left the show to pursue a solo career he took over as the head of the EMT kitchen.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Josh, before Josh left the show.

!!Cousin Dave[[note]]David Heuff[[/note]]
Cousin Dave most frequently appears to eat the creations. He serves as a unique PluckyComicRelief; his gag is that while the others devour their food with hands and such, he uses utensils and in a 'proper' fashion. He also frequently drinks alcohol with a pinky raised (sometimes out of a teacup for greater effect.)
* ButtMonkey: Comes off as a geek on occasion, sometimes a little snarky.
* SirSwearsALot: When he hosts an episode of ''Handle It'' by himself, get ready to hear crows every couple of seconds.
* TheSmartGuy: Other than Tyler.
* YouHaveToHaveJews: Cousin Dave is Jewish. He wears his ''bar mitzvah'' regalia at the end of the Turbaconepic episode [[RefugeInAudacity while carrying off the pig's head with a Baconator stuffed in its mouth]].

The latest member of the team brought in on Epic Meal Empire.
