Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: With the exception of Ray and Monty, basically everyone at the company has shared some funny stories on the podcast of their antics when they were really drunk. Oftentimes, someone else has to recount the story because the person in question was that far gone.
Mean Character, Nice Actor: In real life they actually get on very well with each other and with the fans, they just choose to play up their pranks a lot for entertainment.
Troll: Almost always Played for Laughs, pretty much everyone at Rooster Teeth has engaged in this kind of behavior.
Vitriolic Best Buds: The best way to spot the biggest pairs of pals in videos is to identify who's antagonizing whom the most.

The Original Six
Michael "Burnie" Burns
Michael "Burnie" Burns
The ex-CEO of the company, Burnie heads most of the productions that aren't related to Achievement Hunter. He penned most of Red vs. Blue (before passing the baton off to Miles) and co-directs with Matt, while providing the voice for Leonard Church.
Mean Character, Nice Actor; His character in the live action shorts is an asshole. In real life, he's a very tolerant person and great guy.
Ditto with The Gauntlet, their attempt at making a reality project. He basically passes himself off as an Expy of Donald Trump and behaves obnoxiously, but only to heighten the drama; in any case, the contestants don't seem to mind.
Burnie: I don't like any of you.
One Steve Limit: Burnie is the owner of www.Burnie.com and has been approached by the city of Burnie, Tasmania to relinquish access to it. He's not particularly inclined to hand it over, however.
Ironically, his "first" name came around from the fact that there were so many Michaels in his class.
To the staff themselves, especially the younger ones. He's acknowledged that, having interacted with Barbara since she was 15 via the community site, he's very protective of her, especially when she was first hired.
Raised Catholic: He mentions quite often that his dad was a priest before he was born. Nowadays he doesn't seem that devout, if at all, but he admits that he would struggle to throw away a Bible if asked to.
Trademark Favorite Food: Sandwiches. His antics in the Rooster Teeth Shorts are often spurned by him stealing someone's sandwich, and the office tour on the Rooster Teeth DVD has a Excuse Plot of Burnie about to give a tour only to collapse for lack of sandwiches.
Too Dumb to Live: As a kid, as summed up in this video here, he describes himself as falling into this. Not so much nowadays but he was damned lucky- and he admits it.
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: He doesn't seem to get along well with horses. Not only did he once have to punch one, as noted above, but another time one got loose and started chewing on his car, leaving bite marks all over the metal.
The current CEO of Rooster Teeth. One of Joel's college friends, the two went on to collaborate on several projects and Matt met Burnie through Joel. Along with Burnie, he helped to produce the first four seasons of Red vs. Blue and also worked on visual effects during Blood Gulch Chronicles and Reconstruction. Now directs the series along with Burnie, helps Monty with the effects and voices Sarge.
Bad Boss: Played for Laughs. During a special recap he gets ambushed by JJ and goes "you guys know I can fire you, right?" in order to get out of it. In real life he's a reasonable guy- not this trope, as a few stupid people claim.
Man of a Thousand Voices: He is described as being "the closest Rooster Teeth has to actual voice acting", in terms of its regular staff at least. There are now voice actors in a lot of their productions, but at the time most voices were done by him (he still voices a lot of characters, though, the most prominent of which are Sarge, Doc, O'Malley and Wyoming).
Precision F-Strike: If he swears, you've probably done something mind blowing (either in a stupid way or hilarious way).
The Smart Guy: A role he used to share with Gus. Gus is best at the technology stuff, but Matt was the go-to guy for visual effects until Monty Oum joined the team. Nowadays he sticks to directing with Burnie, and also works with Monty on the visual effects (though he supervises for the most part).
Sophisticated as Hell: Switches from speaking in a really smart way, to randomly swearing from time to time.
The leader and boss man of Achievement Hunter, as well as the voice of Grif in Red vs. Blue.
Ain't No Rule: Not as often as Ryan, but he does this from time to time in Let's Play Minecraft, especially considering he makes the rules most of the time and it lets him pick out loopholes. In the first part of King Ryan, he points out to Gavin that the rules state that they can't kill each other in the palace... but that doesn't say anything about stealing the Iron Ore that Gavin was smelting.
Arc Villain: Invoked for episodes 15, 16 and 17 of Let's Play Minecraft. He grew sick of his work as the Game Master, so he decided to be the challenge for the crew. To that end, he stole the Tower of Pimps, barricaded himself in a floating continent and turned into an Implacable ManHero Killer.
The Bad Guy Wins: Not that he's a villain per se. Only in the sense that he's an antagonist. Nevertheless, he still succeeded in stacking the Tower of Pimps for himself by the end of episode 17.
Awesome McCoolname: His middle name is Lazer, though he legally changed it as a joke. He was initially changing his last name to match his stepfather's, but found out that it actually didn't cost extra to change one's other names.
Badass: Jack rams Geoff with a Ghost and drags him across the field, but Geoff not only survives - he hijacks the Ghost.
In Minecraft, his badassery tends to go unnoticed compared to Jack, Michael, Gavin, Ryan, and especially Ray. And yet, he manages to have the single best K/D ratio according to Rooster Teeth's Achievement City infographic at 1 kill per 2 deaths (the runner up being Michael's 2 for 5).
Batman Gambit: When Gavin stole from him again in Let's Play Minecraft episode 9, Geoff knew that Gavin, the kleptomaniac troll that he is, would steal from him again, so he took the fourth and final gold block from his chest and left some token armor pieces in it. Gavin fell for it, and Geoff finished making his Tower of Pimps, winning the round.
Bait and Switch: In Let's Play Minecraft episode 13, when he hid the Tower of Pimps away from Achievement City, Geoff made nine different tower decoys to throw them off (i.e. one glass block tower, one diamond block tower, five yellow wool block towers).
Call Back: Gavin once made a gigantic tower of sand blocks to get him onto a tree. Geoff left it in for episode 13.
Can't Catch Up: In the early Let's Play Minecraft episodes, Michael was still getting used to the game, Jack was a weak performer, and despite Gavin's familiarity with the game, his trolling made it impossible for him to win. Geoff's only consistent competition was Ray, and even then Geoff was not that far behind him in Tower of Pimps wins (Geoff and Michael once tied for three for the longest time). Since then, however, Michael and Jack Took a Level in Badass, Gavin is often a Spanner in the Works who fails narrowly, Ray remains first and is still a strong competitor, and to make matters worse, Ryan has proven to be a Badass on par with Ray or Michael. It also doesn't help his case that he tends to work as the Game Master or the cameraman, so he's not as acclimated to the courses as Michael and Jack.
It also applies to HORSE as well. In the first 4 HORSE episodes, Geoff beat Jack every time. After that, though, Geoff lost to Jack consistently. He has only won like twice against Jack since then and both times were PIG. This even applies to other competitors and Trials as well. If Geoff wins a HORSE episode, expect there to be thousands of comments expressing shock.
Averted as of late. Geoff has gotten been doing a lot better in the Lets Plays. While he still doesn't compete all the time, he has won the Tower twice in the past few months which is more than he has one in over a year He has also come close to winning a couple of Minecraft Lets Plays, most notably, King Ray which he only lost due to an Honor Before Reason moment. He has also started to do better in a lot more games, including the Sochi Olympics which he took 3rd in. He even managed to sweep Jack in an episode of HUNT, which is something he was never able to accomplish in HORSE.
Catch Phrase: "...as dicks." This is both good and bad. There is no rhyme or reason. There is only dicks. For instance, he has used both "fun as dicks" and "boring as dicks" in the same video.
"WHAT HAPPENED?! WHAT HAPPENED?!" Usually when things don't go his way.
"OH GEOFF!" when he screws up.
Chaotic Neutral: Normally when he plays games where you target specific people, he ends up killing everyone in sight, regardless of whether they're his target or not. This is best illustrated in Trouble In Terrorist Town when he even kills the two other traitors for no reason, and on The Ship where his constant killing of either the other Achievement Hunters or random passengers result in him being far in the negatives in money. In the latter example he actually said "I'll kill anyone, I don't give a fuck!"
Assaulting Gavin for killing him in Minecraft, even if he is a troll overall.
Also taunted teachers with the knowledge that he knew of the "Anarchist's Cookbook", by reciting a recipe as to how to make napalm. Thankfully he has grown out of this.
Punched Gavin in the stomach for winning the Tower of Pimps... completely legitimately, too.
Do Not Try This at Home: See Too Dumb to Live. Also gave a comment of the same sort about his bet that he could earn 10,000 gamerscore in one week, as he was exhausted and wanted nothing but some fresh air.
Dull Surprise: During some episodes of the Weekly Update, his portions can consist of mostly staring slackly and saying "Uuuuuhhhh..." into the camera. Inverted in episode 93 of Let's Play Minecraft. Geoff reacts relatively calmly when Ryan drops out of the sky then later pops up from the ground beneath him (in ham-handed attempts to steal from the store). It isn't until Ryan just walks up to the store as a customer that Geoff gets startled.
In Armageddon Episode 2, he was just about to punch Michael's worm off a cliff, but jumped over him by mistake, fell off the cliff and hit a tree. In the same game, he brought up a bazooka that would launch a homing missile, but he shot himself.
In "The Hidden", Geoff gets sliced by Jack, who's invisible, so Geoff's response is to run into wall and shoot blindly at the wall, when Jack was right behind him.
At the very end of Worms Revolution, it was Geoff vs Michael each with one worm left. What does Geoff do on his turn? He manages to shoot himself with a missile and gives Michael the win.
Let's Play Minecraft episode 4, Geoff gets a bucketload of wood for tools, so he uses it.... to make sticks. The guys, namely Gavin, Ray and Michael, make sure to keep him from living it down.
Geoff: "Where did I...? What happened to my wood? Oh, I made a billion sticks. Fuckin'... This is my idea! How did I fuck that up?" Gavin: "It's like you've blown your own mind with how stupid you were." Ray: "Dude, I got sixteen sticks!" Geoff: "How did I - how did I lo-" Michael: "Are you serious? You still can't grasp this? You can watch the video." Ray: "I can't wait to see the sixteen sticks in his inventory and he's like What the fuck?!"
In Ender Pearl Race, he was the first to mine the Tower of Pimps. As he looked up, he accidentally fell into the water, threw an ender pearl at a ramp.... and teleported in lava.
Michael: Well, there goes the Tower!
Fat and Skinny: With Jack in Achievement Hunter, though downplayed as Jack's weight has gone down and Geoff isn't really that skinny.
The fat to Caleb's skinny, relatively speaking.
Genre Savvy: During Let's Play Minecraft episode 25, the guys were following Gavin's instructions to meet up with him. He was mining two blocks behind Jack, in case Jack fell to his death. He was right.
In Let's Play Minecraft episode 30, Gavin tries to get Geoff to "walk to the back wall". Geoff's response is a blunt "No". When Gavin asks why, Geoff says "'Cause I'm not a fucking moron."
The GM Is A Cheating Bastard: Rare non role playing version. His role in episodes 15 to 17 of Let's Play Minecraft basically involved him setting himself up with as unfair an advantage as possible, loading himself with lava buckets and arrows galore, as well as putting himself in a miniature floating continent.
Less so than it may seem, actually. It should be stated that Gavin, Jack, Ray, and Michael had several opportunities to win that would have ended in at least taking the tower away from Geoff (Geoff accidentally falling off his tower; finding the mark for a hidden supply of diamond tools; Gavin suiting up and hiding to kill Geoff at the last second; etc.). They just couldn't follow through.
Actually the game was heavily tipped in Geoff's favor. The hidden supply of tools was not hidden right behind the out of place cobblestone. It was hidden three blocks over to the right behind a seeminly normal block of dirt. Gavin would not have been able to kill Geoff as well because all he had was an iron sword and Geoff had all diamond. Lastly, Geoff's fall from the tower was completely unplanned which meant that the game was intentionally rigged.
Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Whenever his young daughter's part of a video, he avoids profanity totally and sometimes resorts to this when he would normally curse.
Heterosexual Life-Partners: To Jack or Gus, depending on the video. In the "Headlight Fluid" Animated Adventure, he and Gus are jokingly labeled "Best Couple". With Jack their relationship goes more in a Vitriolic Best Buds route, with Geoff joking that the stress from HORSE has caused them to "sleep in separate beds now".
Also with Gavin since Gavin lives at his house, helps him plan most of the minecraft builds and if Geoff does co-op videos with one other person, it's always with Gavin.
Geoff has sometimes shown himself to be a huge comic book fan, as shown during their X-Men Arcade playthrough, in which he references several well known Wolverine plots and makes the odd Shout-Out to his various Pre Ass Kicking One Liners.
He does it again in VS. Episode 58, not only getting the block and counter buttons reversed while playing Dead or Alive 5, but choosing a character whose combat style is way off the norm.
Hypocritical Humor: He has a go at Jack for having a beard that's too long, but at one time Geoff had a beard of his own that wasn't exactly the tidiest. Thankfully, he shaved it off and went for a mustache.
The Hyena: Thanks to Fails of the Weak. Has led to his laugh being called a cure for all things horrible.
It Amused Me: After Gavin and Michael find him, Geoff decides to barricade his hideout with TNT, laughing his ass off as: Gavin burns himself upon igniting the TNT; Ray freaks out at Geoff's decision; and Ray gets killed as the TNT explodes. He's laughing so hard that it allows Michael to kill him not too long after. His reason for it was "entertainment".
Laser-Guided Karma: In Let's Play Minecraft episode 17, after winning the Tower of Pimps and taking it from Ray, he (naturally) bragged about it. Ray won it back in episodes 19 and 20.
In Let's Play Minecraft episode 29, after indirectly killing Ray and losing the round for shits and giggles, Geoff gets major lag issues after he respawns, delaying him from watching the rest of the game until the very end.
After taking the Tower of Pimps from Gavin and taunting everybody by sneezing into it (it was cleaned, don't worry), Ray wins in the subsequent episode and takes the Tower from Geoff again.
In Let's Play Grand Theft Auto IV Races, he gives up the third race and decides to be a troll, ramming Gavin and causing him to lose first place. Later on, he rams Ray, causing him to lose third place. Ray responds by shooting at Geoff as he comes back around, nailing him perfectly and killing him.
Porn Stache: At times, he shaves his beard and lets a mustache grow out instead, bordering on this at its longest.
Retired Badass: Of all the staff members, he actually served in the military. And he's still a pretty good shot.
Running Gag: Geoff has quite a bit of trouble getting the others to shut up and pay attention to the the rules at the start of each Minecraft episode, the point where he frequently gives the reigns over to a co-GM or jokingly threatens to fire people.
He also seems to chronically have trouble finding coal compared to the others and will express irritation when someone inevitably brags how much they have in excess.
Sir Swears-a-Lot: Normally, but he goes out of his way to defy this trope when he's with his daughter, as some viewers pointed out during some of their father-daughter Achievement Hunter commentary.
Sore Loser: In Minecraft, he has a tendency to get annoyed if he gets undermined. Case in point, episode 23 when he punches Gavin in the gut for winning.
After Ray once again takes the Tower of Pimps back from Geoff, he slaps around Ray's toys in protest.
Completely averted in Black Ops 2 Part 2. Geoff even says he is cheering for Ray(despite the fact that Ray is an enemy) and when Ray does it, Geoff is one of the first to congratulate him.
Geoff has really been averting this as of late. There were several times that he came extremely close to winning and he has not become upset that he lost. Take King Ray, for example, where he ultimately screws himself out of a win by honoring his earlier deal with Michael and telling him that he found diamond, even though Michael can easily kill him. Despite the fact that he came so close to winning the Tower for the first time in months, he did not seem upset at all that he lost and even said that he had no regrets.
Stationary Boss: Let's Play Minecraft episodes 15 - 17 have him hiding in a Sky Fortress, protecting the Tower of Pimps. He pours lava all over the fortress and fires arrows to keep Gavin, Ray and Michael away.
Subverted; he actually fell off the fortress, allowing Ray to take the tower, so he was forced to fight on foot. It succeeded.
Gavin: "It's possible that Geoff forgot what he had already done and put two [towers of glass]."
Geoff: "Nah, nah, Geoff had a lot of resources."
Too Dumb to Live: A variation during military school that the Darwin Awards would dub "survivor at risk". He tried huffing gas when he was told to siphon gas out of several lawnmowers, with the result that he went to hospital.
In episode 29 of Let's Play Minecraft, he deliberately barricades the front of their cave with TNT... which Gavin promptly sets on fire and detonates, with the result that Ray dies and he gets beaten to death by Michael while laughing.
Tranquil Fury: Double Subverted in episode 9 of Let's Play Minecraft; when Gavin kills him and steals his six gold blocks, Geoff starts beating him up in real life - and not just tackling him to the ground; actually punching him to the point where it can be heard over the microphone. After this, while still very pissed off, Geoff rarely says a word until after he wins the round.
During Let's Play Minecraft episode 29, Ray tries to ride a mine-cart to the arena. Geoff deliberately gets in his way several times over, forcing Ray's cart back repeatedly. Later in the same episode, he puts a load of TNT in front of Ray when they're cornered by Gavin, which gets him killed.
Let's Play Minecraft episode 30. When Jack kills a Spider, Geoff comes over to steal an experience point that Jack would've gotten instead.
As the Game Master in Let's Play Minecraft episode 37, he was the camera man, so he could fly around the map. He used it to scare Jack.
As the Game Master again in episode 41, he uses sprint to get to an area. When he happened to use sprint on the air in front of Gavin, the latter understandably didn't like the Jump Scare.
Geoff was given the gamepad for the New Super Mario Bros. U Let's Play. He immediately used his block-spawning powers to actively hinder the team for the entire game.
In Let's Play Minecraft episode 47, he turned on invisibility and spent half the game haunting the players, spawning gravel, flint and chickens behind Jack, Ray and Michael.
In GTA IV Races, during the last couple races, Geoff quickly abandons the race and rams into the other players instead.
Similarly, in "Let's Play Forza 4: Car Soccer", Geoff starts off as the only player with a Hummer. As such, he simply rams into the Lads' players, destroying their cars and allowing the Gents to win.
Let's Play Minecraft episode 99, full stop. Not only did he turn invisible and haunt Gavin and Michael by placing insulting signs behind them, but he became very accustomed to the "Teleport to Me" option...
"I'm already mostly liquor anyway. I've replaced all the water in my body with alcohol."
Badass Beard: It's treated as such in the shorts, to the point that Burnie steals it in one of them.
Badass Bookworm: In Immersion. He turns out to be quite good with a pistol, despite having not even trained with them in earlier life. The entire point of said video was to prove that the average person would have trouble adjusting to weapons they weren't used to. He also trained with shotguns in earlier life.
He also proves a reasonably competent gamer, as shown in The Gauntlet.
Berserk Button: Gavin always wears his podcast headphones back to front, which always sets Gus off without fail.
Do Wrong, Right: When Gavin goes out of his way to do something stupid and trollish, such as when he gets Gus killed in The Gauntlet even when it's not helpful.
Fan Disservice: He ends up shirtless a lot during the shorts, and it is always nightmare inducing.
Hair-Trigger Temper: He has a habit of getting quite annoyed (or just interrupting) if he hears stuff that he finds odd or stupid. Lampshaded during the live podcast at RTX when he begs the others to stop leaping on his stories, and they reply that he does it all the time.
The Hyena: Often when Gavin does something stupid.
Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Burnie are very good friends but they insult each other regularly and get into vicious-sounding arguments over tiny things.
Joel Pearce Heyman
An actor that used to act in Hollywood before joining the team, he and Matt went to college together and as a result have known each other for some time. You'd know him best as Caboose from Red vs. Blue or an exaggerated version of himself in the shorts.
Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: Giving out Jack's phone number at RTX 2013 might be a good example, and it was quite obvious Joel had drank a bit by that point. It turns out the prank may have been prepared, as Joel switched his sim card so as not to give his REAL number out, but he still chose to do it under the influence.
Butt Monkey: Moreso on the podcast than in other times.
Cloud Cuckoolander: He sometimes plays this up for laughs, but other times he says (and does) the weirdest stuff with no warning. Case in point, "If we were people..."
A good example of this is when he joins the Achievement Hunter team in Let's Play Minecraft for an episode; the rest of the guys spend their time trying to get the "On A Rail" achievement, while Joel walks far away from the others and starts doing stuff on his own, refusing to tell the others where he is. Whenever the screen cuts to him, he's always doing something completely different, from mining to stacking blocks underneath himself to get up into the sky.
Conspiracy Theorist: Played for Laughs. He jokingly owes a problem that the podcast LP team have to "scheming Republican kittens". Burnie has said that if one of Joel's more serious theories turns out to be true and Joel declares "I was right", Burnie plans to say "yes, but you did not say this would happen", just to kill his mood.
Deadpan Snarker: When he cameos in the Achievement Hunter series Fails of the Weak, he has his moments of this.
Jack: "Something's wrong with this Wraith, Joel. Can you tell what it is?"
He also is apparently like this in real life; on the Rooster Teeth podcast, it's stated that when his UPS started beeping and Burnie went over to help out, Joel replied that he didn't want help, he wanted this to last as long as possible.
His commentary for the Gauntlet often extends into this, as best shown by Left 4 Dead 2.
Disproportionate Retribution: His punishment to Gavin for insulting his Halo 2 gametype was to flip Gavin off his chair, then stack that chair and another one on top of him.
At RTX 2013, Joel really wanted to sign his name onto the 15ft tall Tower of Pimps replica that Jack had lovingly made. Jack adamantly refused, not wishing for Joel to deface his work for the sake of a Running Gag. In retaliation, a drunk Joel gave out Jack's real phone number during a live podcast (to an audience of 400+) which was also being livestreamed online (to an audience of 4000+). It took a mere ten minutes for Jack's phone to blow up under the sheer volume of text messages and voicemails. And the cherry on the cake? It was all a prank: Joel secretly switched Jack's SIM card for a fake one (with a new number) and gave that one out.
Sophisticated as Hell: While he doesn't exactly swear a lot, he does sometimes do this and randomly throw a swearword in, often while discussing economics.
Squee: His reaction to meeting Chandler Riggs was this in spades, to the point that they made a Minecraft video together.
Troll: He'll occasionally come into the Achievement Hunter office just to mess with them while they're filming.
In The Gauntlet, he pops up randomly during an episode introduction to distract Ali, the host.
In the livestreamed RTX 2013 podcast, he gave Jack's phone number out. It got bombarded with so many voicemails and text messages that it went dead. It was all a prank: Joel had secretly switched out the SIM card in Jack's phone and gave out the fake number.
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: A self-inflicted and very literal version. He and his brother dumped a python in a pool, only to be traumatised when it pooped in the pool.
He also has a slightly more justifiable one with panthers, and while the fear isn't exactly crippling you'd have to be a stone-hearted bastard to not understand why.
The voice actor for Tucker and resident pervert of the RT. It's unknown how he met up with Burnie and the others, but he has been at the company since the beginning. Married in October 2012.
These guys are the Spotlight-Stealing Squad who today make up the bulk of RT's content thanks to their Let's Play videos. How much of a triple S, you ask? They made up for at least half of the size of this page, which got to the point that this page ended up on our list of Overly Long Pages. Thus, they now have a character page of their own.It should be noted that their leader is Geoff Ramsey (in case you haven't looked at his folder), who is staying on this page due to him being part of the Original Six above. Another frequent collaborator with this group, Kerry Shawcross, can be found in the "Other Staff Members" folder below. One of the main members, Gavin Free, became so Troperiffic he got his own page.
Team Mom: Considers herself the "office mom", and has said in a livestream that she treats Kerry like an adopted son. She actually does have a son, but you wouldn't know about it as she doesn't talk about him that much.
Women Are Wiser: The staff regards her to be more level headed, same as in RvB.
A British student who got noticed after he designed some RT themed applications.
British Accents: He's from Nottingham in the north of England, so naturally it doesn't quite sound the same as Gavin's.
Butt Monkey: The butt of many jokes when he makes several mistakes.
The Lead Machinima animator, the voice for Jaune Arc, and a writer for Red vs. Blue and RWBY.
Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He actually confirmed that he has ADHD in a recent podcast, and has not been taking medication for it recently if he is to be believed.
Badass: He's a decent Halo player and Sonic player, as The Gauntlet has shown. In Episode 4 of The Gauntlet, Miles manages to complete his Sonic game in the fastest time out of everyone, beating Ryan of all people, as well as Greg Miller from IGN who's also a Sonic pro.
Let's Get Dangerous: Miles spends his time before playing Sonic talking and lolling around. Cue the game starting and he gets serious, promptly kicks seven shades of blue out of both Gavin and Justine, the latter of whom started before he did, and gets a few good lines of trash talk in.
Marshmallow Hell: Was a victim of this in a strip club. It got really, really, weird.
Genius Ditz: When they tried to get him to fail at science questions in the way that Ben failed at America questions, it backfired horribly and he proved himself rather knowledgeable.
Genre Blind: Talking about politics on the podcast is generally not seen as a good thing to talk about, as it causes people who are otherwise good friends to get into big arguments. Brandon fails to see why on several occasions.
The Klutz: He's reportedly a bit clumsy, if some of the RTAA episodes with him are to be believed.
The Load: During the Podcast playthrough of Payday 2, none of the group are exactly good but Brandon is downed the most which forces them to keep reviving him.
One Steve Limit: Invoked by Burnie in the shorts, albeit on very ridiculous grounds.
A new-ish employee whose official job is unknown, although he is the creator of Nature Town. Easily the guy with the strangest thought process at Rooster Teeth.
High On Catnip: Played with. His reaction to a bag full of catnip was to tear a script and throw up. Burnie was not at all happy about the guys giving it to him, promptly calling Brandon a moron for doing so.
The Stoic: Played with. He seems to not mind being lifted up, and as shown on RT Podcast #185, you can even lift him up and swing him like a pendulum and he won't care- he'll just roll back into your lap and start joyfully meowing as you stroke his belly.
Determinator: See forty seconds of that CGI sequence? That took him eight hours to do single-handedly, but he manages to keep doing it anyway.
The Quiet One: Less so than Nathan, but still notably. This is particularly true on the podcast, where he will say about ten words at a time and let everyone else say the rest, laughing and saying little else.
Rule of Cool: His life creed, basically. Worth noting that he has no formal education in animation, he just does things the way he likes and it turns out awesome anyways.
The community manager of Rooster Teeth and voice for Yang Xiao Long. Much like Gavin, she's an ascended fan that volunteered on numerous fan events and was eventually formally hired.
Adorkable: If you hear her accounts of meeting Burnie for the first time, they're very sweet in a shy way.
Canada, Eh?: She's originally from Canada. Usually downplayed, though she complains more about the Austin heat than the others and has a great affinity for Tim Horton's coffee. It becomes a joke in one of their Vine videos.
Epic Fail: She is not very good at Halo. Lampshaded when Gavin beat her in the Horse Tournament and Burnie and Joel just scoff, commenting "it's not hard".
Took a Level in Badass: For the 2013 tournament, she did some practice to try and not do as badly. She again gets eliminated in her first match, but to be fair that time she was up against Ray, and she managed to win three rounds and briefly overtake Ray. Considering Ray is quite possibly the best gamer out of everybody in the entire office, this is particularly impressive and Ray congratulates her for doing as well as she did. She also plays as part of the RT Team for The Gauntlet in Season 2, and their team comes second in the first game.
Ms. Fanservice: Sometimes, most notably in the "Siri Horror Movie" short, though she has occasionally shown contempt for people who think she exists just for this reason. Just watch her Animated Adventure episode to see how.
There is a Vine video that was recorded which has Gavin and Burnie's X-ray glasses work, leaving a brief shot of her in a bra. Cue jokes on Youtube about how most guys (and a few girls) paused the video at that moment.
Shaggy Dog Story: The Let's Play Grand Theft Auto V episode "Enter the Dragonface" was apparently this: The AH Crew put him through a humiliating initiation test, putting him though some of the stuff they did for Let's Plays and Things to Do in GTA, bring him into the Fake AH Crew group after succeeding... then apparently kicking him out a few weeks later.
Sixth Ranger: Has appeared in a few Achievement Hunter Let's Plays, often filling in for somebody who isn't present. That said, he will occasionally join when the whole team is present. He's filled in for Ryan in episode 74 of Let's Play Minecraft, owing to Ryan being on paternity leave- specifically, his wife was giving birth there and then during the original filming.
Really cranked up in Ryan's second reign as king, where Kerry acts as the Mad King's assistant, receives a house in Achievement City (a room under Michael's house), and is the True Final Boss of the Let's Play.
Character Exaggeration: While the use of audio files restricts what he can do, he tends to exaggerate facial features, and he's not above editing the file to make it sound a little funnier as well. This is done for Rule of Funny.
The Cameo: He appeared as as a soldier operating a Scorpion turret in Rv B.
The creator of Arby 'n' the Chief and One Life Remaining, Jon decided he would like to meet up with the members of Rooster Teeth (partly to prove there is no rivalry between them and him, and partly for creativity reasons). He has previously collaborated with Luke.
The voice of Donut. Dan can, to all extents and purposes, be considered an honorary member of Rooster Teeth. The reason he doesn't work there full time is because he has a day job. Nevertheless, he's been there for years.
One of Kerry and Chris' friends in New Zealand, becoming the Guest Star Party Member for A Simple Walk Into Mordor.
Badass Bookworm: More badass than Gavin (though much less bookworm, if Burnie is to be believed)
Badass Labcoat: For the Slow Mo Guys, though as recent videos have shown he's wrecked one of its sleeves, covered it in paint and shredded it.
Brains and Brawn: The Brawn of the Slow Mo Guys, as he's the military technician who does the firearms and explosives work and probably throws a much meaner right-hook than Gavin can. Ray even wonders if Gavin fended off bullies by threatening to have Dan fight them. Though one has to wonder what he's done to make Burnie declare that even Gavin looks bright compared to him...
Took a Level in Badass: He apparently went from weak and nerdy to well-built, tanned and a little less nerdy, owing to his travels in South America.
Butt Monkey: If he were an actual member of Rooster Teeth, he'd probably get this worse than Gavin.
