- Punny Name: Matt Tenant is a "walking, talking, Dr. Who reference."
- Willing Channeler: Matt Tenant is the only one to accept the nightmare form's promise of power, then promptly gets branded for it.
An elf who is very much in the wrong campaign.
Sibas Sin, Sorcerer 11/Nightmare Spinner 1
- Bag of Holding: More like "bag of hoarding" for Sibas, who keeps EVERYTHING he sees, down to moldy rugs and silverware.
- Comedic Sociopath: When presented with any obstacle at all, Sibas almost has to make a Will save not to Kill it with Fire. For example, during the filler pilot, he nuked a gang of more than a half-dozen commoners.

Yaseilex's cohort. Before Power Creep, Power Seep
was by far the toughest member of the party.

- Super Strength: Carries a ship around like a backpack. Takes part in numerous orcish sports, including Orcish Kickball, Orcish Soccer, Orcish Basketball, Orcish Fencing, and atomized an Pit Fiend with a single attack.

- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: His familiar is normally a Pyroclastic wyrmling... which he can change into other dragons or familiars thanks to a Changeling Wizard class feature.
- Money Fetish: He bathes in it, lives in the most luxury he can reasonably afford, and has Spell Thematics (Money). This means his magic missiles are blasts of pennies, his Fireballs melting coins, and his Gust of Wind blows prommisory notes.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Comes with the Changeling package.
Botharug the Mighty (Kaorti Monk 6/Fiend of Possession 6/Legacy Champion 2)
"Who the hell do you think I am?!"
A Kaorti who possesses an iron golem called "The Crimson Face", which he combines with seemingly random objects (a castle, a mirror universe, a lake) to create new bodies.

Carries a lead tent with him to avoid the harmful effects of the material plane.

- The Lancer
- True Neutral
- Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: Can give energy resistance of whichever type is needed at the time.
- Elemental Powers: Most of his attacks, though Fire, Ice, Lightning are actually the three weakest of his attacks, and so are used least often.

- Personality Powers: Dependent on the most recently used one(s)
- The Sneaky Guy: Although a bard, his ability to produce subsonic sounds that still allow him to transmit his magic, combined with his ability to perform underwater and to levitate, makes him the best member of the party for the job.

Quintby Ingmeen, Bard 5/Memory Smith 5/Sublime Chord 10
- The Big Guy
- Chaotic Good
- An Ax To Grind: While rocking out
- Boisterous Bruiser
- Genius Bruiser: Underestimating his INT is a bad idea, for he can use this to his advantage, like a poker player faking a tell.
- Instrument of Murder: The "Ax" and drumsticks
- Large Ham: His catchphrase includes "I have sampled the finest wines and ales of the thousand planes, I've delighted in our most beautiful groupies, climbed the tallest mountains, tasted the flesh of the most powerful bulls, lions, and sharks this world has to offer, and drink tiger blood with every meal…"
- Pay Evil unto Evil: With a giant battleaxe
- The Beastmaster: An army of thousands of llamas (each costing 50 gp) at his beck and call. He wears sweaters made from their wool.

Notable Non-Player Characters
Many of the important characters from the Greyhawk setting make appearances from time to time. These are the ones unique to this show.
"Hey, everybody!" (immediately followed by everybody else shunning the creepy girl)
A Grey Elven girl. Was originally Yaseilex's apprentice.
- Cheerful Child: ...Until she gets a vision.
- Creepy Child: "That was creepily adorable." – Matt Tenant on Rebecca threatening the party Noob
- Go Mad from the Revelation: Whenever she sees the future with her augury ability, since she has a tendency to always see the worst possibility that could happen during the time.
- Insistent Terminology: Yaseilex's player created her and calls her Casae. No one else does (thanks to LittleKuriboh).
- Mad Oracle: Rebecca, whenever she peers into the future, gasps and changes her voice from adorable to creepy.
- Oracular Urchin: Almost exactly this trope
- Talkative Loon: Rebecca, when hit by an insanity spell, started spouting random words and phrases.
- Waif Prophet: Qualifies, as she is a child who sees into the future.
- Word Salad: After going insane from an encounter in the cultists' temple, this happens.
"Did someone order a Deus ex Machina?"!!
Yaseilex's grandfather, a powerful wizard.
Steve Popo, Hugglelord of the Cuddlepits (Mr. Popo)
"I am the Iron Angel, the Hand of Dispater!"
- Coup de Grâce: His M.O. is to paralyze his opponents with a critical hit with his +5 Vorpal/Paralytic Burst greatsword "Dark Angel's Hand" that divides into bastard swords (one with vorpal, then other with paralytic burst, with the one that is used by the greatsword being chosen whenever the two recombine) or his Lynxpaw (i.e. rapier + ball and chain), which he is especially likely to succeed in doing (he can threaten a crit on a two with the latter).
- Note: The name is derived from an online poll on the show's Facebook page, which contained three options: Mr. Popo, Steve, and Hugglelord of the Cuddlepits. Since they all seemed to be almost as popular as one another, the Dungeon Master just made them all in his name.
