Voiced by: Lyon Smith
- The Ace
- Affectionate Nickname: Laney calls him "Core".
- Ambiguous Disorder: According to Word of God, Corey has both OCD and ADD. This means he'll decide on a genre or venue for the band to pursue, and once they get it, gives it up to pursue something else.

- Awesome Mc Coolname: Corey Jaron Riffin, this is supported in the episode "Dueling Buttons", when he inputs the intials "CJR" in the game.

- Character Development: While he's initially Oblivious to Love, he slowly shows signs of affection towards Laney as the series progresses, in fact, in the second half of Season One, he starts to treat her like a lady and stops calling her a dude.
- Chick Magnet: A result of being popular.
- Cry Cute: He rarely gets emotional but when he does his innocence shows.
- Curtains Match the Window: When his irises are shown.
- Distressed Dude: So far he has been controlled by a helmet (albeit briefly, as he takes it off by fighting it), a plant, and an evil guitar; all due to his trusting nature. He even got kidnapped (along with the rest of the band) by two little girls!
- Dreadful Musician: While he isn't terrible at playing the guitar or singing, the only thing he's terrible at is coming up with good lyrics, but only without the use of Trina's Diary.

- Expy: Of Rory Williams. They're both adventurous, brave, and protective of a close female friend. Plus their first names rhyme.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Sanguine
- Friend to All Living Things: To a slightly lesser extent than Nick Mallory, as he is often shown having animals cuddle up to him, usually in his Final Thought. This also leads him to be gullible and hence is very susceptible to mind control.

- Insane Troll Logic
- Manipulative Bastard: Like his biological sister, he shows a streak of this at times.
- Meaningful Name: His middle name, Jaron, comes from the hebrew word meaning Yaron, which means to sing or shout phrases, which makes sense because he's often seen singing and/or shouting.

- Tomboyish Ponytail: Her early design.
- Too Important to Walk: Has Mina carry her on piggyback when she doesn't feel like walking.
- Took A Level In Jerk Ass: If you can believe it. In the pilot Trina was merely overbearing and a tad dramatic - flash forward to the latter half of the season where Trina openly admits to trying to kill Corey, going so far as to call Mina a groupie and not even a BFF and leaving the entire world to die so she could be with Nick Mallory forever. One can only hope Mina finally snapping and calling her out on her bullshit had positive after effects.

- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Despite the abuse Trina puts on her, Mina still sincerely loves her as a friend.
- Badass Biker
- Beleaguered Assistant
- Beta Bitch: To Trina.
- Beware the Nice Ones: In "Knights to Remember", although part of it is most likely due to the result of Bonkerton Comet, but she was still pretty scary in that episode. Specifically, the comet seemed to switch her personality with Trina's (and Trina's with hers), to the point where she took up the role of diary/lyric writer, even copying Trina's Game Face (albeit with Scary Shiny Glasses added for good measure) while doing it.
- In "Group Hug" after Kate and Allie kidnap Trina she threatens them into telling her where they hid her.
- Big Damn Heroes: In "Hear Us Rock!". She pulls a Heel-Face Turn and retrieves Grojband's instruments from a dumpster.

- Cute Bookworm: As seen in "Six Strings of Evil" when Trina derides her love of books.
- The Dog Bites Back: Gets back at Trina by standing up to her and saying that she's had enough abuse in "Hear Us Rock!".
- Doppelgänger: To Trina, as she's pretty much a mirror image of her.
- The Dragon: To Trina (but of the Minion with an F in Evil variety, of course).

- Extreme Doormat: Don't be surprised if it literally happens.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Melancholic

- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's Teal.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Fluctuates between Grade C and Grade B.

- Cheerful Children
- Genki Girls
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Both Sanguine.
- Groupie Brigade: Somewhat downplayed.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Kate.
- Heel-Face Revolving Door: While some episodes show the groupies as die-hard fans of Grojband, some episodes like "Cloudy With A Chance Of Malt Balls" and "Girl Fest" show them shunning Grojband in favor of some other musician/celebrity, but no matter who they're fans of, they'll always be Grojband's biggest fans anyway.
- The Knights Who Say Squee
- Loony Fans: To Grojband.
- Meganekko: Allie.
- Shout-Out: Their first names are the same as the lead characters of the sitcom "Kate and Allie," while their last names are the same as the last names of "Kate and Allie" directors Bill Persky and Linda Day.
- Stalker with a Crush: Variable over the series, but there are instances where they rival Sierra, taken really far in "Group Hug" where they enter Corey's house at night to give him his favorite drink, before kidnapping him and the rest of his band and holding them prisoner for their Grojband Shrine, until he writes a song about them.
- Tagalong Kids
- Those Two Girls
- Tomboyish Ponytail
- Youthful Freckles: Allie.

- Affectionate Nickname: Trina Riffin would usually refer to Nick Mallory as "Hunky Nick Mallory".

- Karma Houdini: He sends a little kid to life in prison for blowing a bubble. Of course he wasn't himself when this happens.
