The Annotators:


    First band 
The people that have been on the channel since the beeupyou days. Only a couple of them (Reload Psi, Irrelevant and Avirosb) are still around to check on the channel (2009 - 2010).

CurtDogg

Annotator since- CTRL+Alt+Del: The Annotated Series
The friendly man who started it all by creating the channel and uploading CRTL+ALT+DEL. He was once the main uploader and one of the primary annotators before unofficially leaving at the near start of The AnnotateXperiment.

jmr48080

Annotator since-
I submit that there is nothing more terrifying than an animal with a mouth full of human teeth.

CurtDogg's Lancer and one of the more reclusive annotators.

Avirosb

Annotator since- CTRL+Alt+Del: The Annotated Series S2
Also, isn't Mother Brain already allied with Malkil and Eggplant Wizard? What the fuck does she need MORE wizards for?!

Annotation Color: Green
The Smart Guy who provides a lot of more intellectual jokes. He took over the role of Big Good from CurtDogg after the first channel jump.
  • Funny Foreigner: While this is kind of flawed, most of the annotators are American or British, while Avi stands out as being Norwegian. You'd never notice unless he told you.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Has become this in the forums, always complaining about changes in Annotated Series he doesn't like.
  • He Also Did: Archived a lot of the videos.
  • Shown Their Work: His contributions show this. invoked
  • The Smart Guy
    • The Hero: of the AnnotatXperiment channel. Sort of the Moses leading on when shared annotations ended.
  • 10-Minute Retirement: Tends to retire briefly whenever Youtube makes a change in the annotation system.


ReloadPsi

Annotator since April 2010.
Annotation Color: Teal
A minor annotator who later became part of the main group. He provides some musical contributions to the channels, as well as performing in the Easter Egg videos.
  • Ascended Extra: Appeared briefly in Annotated Daydream after having made minor contributions to the annotations for the past year, then went on to perform a number of Easter Egg videos.
  • Bi the Way: Once stated that the main reason he didn't find Bouchedags as hard to watch was because he found Sam and Steve kind of cute.
  • Commuting on a Bus: Shows up for finales and the occasional intermission material ever since The Super Mario Bros. Super Show burned him out.
  • The Voice: Started uploading his vocalisations of the surf music songs during Captain N.

Irrelevant402

Annotator since- Street Fighter S2 Ep07
Remember Irrelevant: be careful what you wish for.

Annotation Color: Black
The ever-present Token Evil Teammate who loves to troll his fellow annotators by uploading the worst stuff he can find.
  • Attention Whore
  • Author Appeal: Giant robots, Guyver, Paradise Lost, and things like character development and continuity nods.
  • Bald of Evil: The Nutshack...(He is both balding and shaves his head.)
  • Berserk Button: Child molesters and rapists in general, female characters that are just 'the female character', friendship being told and not shown, the Nutshack and extremists of any sort.
  • Bi the Way: But was not the Annotator who found some of the Bouchedags attractive.
  • The Bus Came Back: Returned after a long hiatus to semi-regularly annotate Archie's Weird Mysteries.
  • The Chick: Contacted as many people as possible to rally around Avirosb after sharing annotations ended.
  • Dude, Not Funny!!: Rape gets under his skin very quickly and was upset when Santa cried during the Christmas Comes to Pac-Land. invoked
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Could not bring himself to mock Bouchedags. Hypocritical considering he finds Nutshack even worse and only because it has old men with constant boners. Nor could he taunt Jay's Life because he could sympathize with that young teenager attitude of 'lol this is funny!' Also Bouchedags, Nutshack and CAD had actual money involved so they could apparently be mocked. If he tries to force a running gag and people hate it he'll fess up and apologize too.
  • Fat Bastard: Slimming down though
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Often wants and typically gets vodka during the worst stuff.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Never Live It Down: His fellow annotators will never forget him wanting The Nutshack and Beauty and Warrior (even if he didn't upload them himself). invoked
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Is not ashamed to admit he loves My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and citing Shrinking Violet Fluttershy as his favorite among the main cast.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Avirosb's blue.
  • Shown Their Work: Having gone to culinary school he pointed out several problems with the extremely lax kitchen staff in Western Animation/Ratatoing.
  • Token Evil Teammate: After learning how to upload videos he is not afraid to upload The Nutshack if he doesn't feel there aren't enough intermissions.
  • Working Through the Cold: Or rather a broken ankle in April and trying to annotate every once in a while.

    Second Band 
The second group of annotators that joined the channel during theAnnotatXperiment era. HurpDurpManBry and Hamsteere are the only ones still active to this day (2011 - 2013).

MrGuyPwnsYou

Annotator from Christmas Comes To Pac-Land - Donkey Kong Country Season 1
Color: Light Purple
A science-loving Wrong Genre Savvy annotator who is notably a fellow troper.

creatorofGandP

Annotator since-

Hamsteere

Annotator since- The end of Captain N: The Game Master Season 1
... Good.

Annotation Color: Orange
The Butt Monkey Brit who's constantly having computer malfunctions. More or less one of the more cynical annotator on board.
  • Butt Monkey: Can't catch a break with his computer.
  • Jade-Colored Glasses: Seems to view the material he's given with a less-than-optimistic outlook. Usually this means that a series has worn him out for good.
  • The Mean Brit
  • The Smart Guy: Has been tweaking Super Show episodes a bit until the second episode. Considered the funniest of the current group.
  • True Neutral: Isn't the type to show positivity or negativity for characters one way or another.. unless it's Bluster Kong, in which it's understandable.

HurpDurpManBry

Annotator since- The Legend of Zelda: The Annotated Series
They're actually doing something? Bullshit.

Annotation Color: Dark Blue
An Ascended Fanboy energetic Floridian with some rather... interesting thought processes. Got the gears going as being the official uploader before giving his position over to VonnyFortan.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Watched the entirety of Ctrl-Alt-Del Annotated, and within a month later made brief annotations in Legend of Zelda and the Battletoads/Bubsy pilots. He didn't shine through until Captain N: The Game Master.
  • Author Avatar: Robotnik from Sonic SatAM, according to his opposers (or just Vonny)
  • Ax-Crazy: With the shows he's watched for a near decade..
  • Bad Boss: Since the uploader is the closest that comes to the true "leader" of the Annotators, he used to be technically this. He has subjected the annotators (and himself) to some of the worst material in the channel's history, brought back Sonic SatAM, a show infamous for almost killing the entire channel because of it's bore, for a second season among other bad deeds, just to torture other annotators. This is pretty lost in itself since the annotators voted to continue Sat AM.
  • Berserk Button: Pretty much anything but especially puns, slow pacing and plot holes.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander
  • Commuting on a Bus: Has started to become this after the first Intermission Month in January 2016. His workload at school and computer scheduling is the cause of this. He loosened up in April 2016.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Has taken up this mantle since Bauglir went AWOL. He prepares videos two days before the air date in case something comes up in his schedule.
  • Dead Baby Comedy: Uses this frequently, whenever he's not analyzing.
  • The Everyman
  • The Heart: Reasonably passionate for this entire thing.
  • I Hate Past Me: Happened in the April Fools 2016 special when he, as well as the other Annotators, saw how whiny and passive-aggressive he was during the Super Show era.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Taunts mercilessly at Youtube to take down their videos.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Advertised Voice Actor Richard Newman's fundraiser which was meant to help him and his daughter to pay their rent. Also he dedicates videos to some recently at-that-time deceased celebrities such as Robin Williams.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: A self-proclaimed "softy for kittens".
  • One of Us
  • Passing the Torch: Gave up Friday's uploading slot to VonnyFortan during Double Dragon. Has given up uploading series full time after Sonic the Hedgehog.
  • Power Trio: Has taken this position with Hamsteere and Vonny.
  • Seen It All
  • Serious Business: Only he can have a dangerously realistic Freak Out over a pun song.
  • The Smart Guy: Is The Other Darrin for this, while Hamsteere has problems with his own video editor.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Uploaded Dr. D and The Human Life Machine when people uploaded unplanned videos, and when Irrelevant was considering the second episode of The Nutshack to be uploaded... And waited a total of eight hours to upload all three parts of the second Dr. D video.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: After the first season of Sonic SatAM, he became more ruthless towards the annotators, taking full control over the schedule of annotated material and uploading a lot of terrible intermissions, most notably Felix Saves Christmas. Let's just say his riffing personality has completely taken over him.
  • The Voiceless: He once only suggested video ideas and commentates and annotates on videos earlier in the project, though he turned it around by being more active, and by willing to upload Sonic Underground and The Super Mario Bros. Super Shownote  throughout both of their entire run before retiring from uploading duties after a year.. before coming back and sharing uploading duties with VonnyFortan. As of November 2015, he has retired from regular uploading.

    Third Band 
New annotators who stand out after Super Show burned most of TAX-era annotators out, most of them joined around the second channel hop (2014 - present)

Cyberguy 64

Annotator since- Mega Man
This episode has the budget of a Happy Meal.

Annotation Color: Cyan.
Obsessed with video games and the art of animation, he loves making Shout-Out-based jokes. Generally tries to bring a positive attitude to the channel for contrast, but he can still snark with the best of them.

VonnyFortan

Annotator since - The End Of Darkstalkers
Fuck furries.

Annotation Color: A different shade of dark blue
The current uploader. Used to co-upload Double Dragon while Hurp uploaded Sonic SatAM and ProStars, before obtaining both Tuesday and Friday slots and becoming the main uploader. Used to take far more calm approach to material when the channel still had angry cynical annotators burned out from Super Mario Bros Super Show, but has become more angry over the years.
  • Acceptable Targets: A wide range of things, but especially furries, various religions and nationalities, and the Annotators themselves.
  • Ascended Fanboy
  • Bash Brothers: With Hurp. Since Sonic SatAM, he always proceeds to take shots at him.
  • Berserk Button: While relatively calm, furries and memes drive him into riff-induced anger.
  • Complainingabout Complaining: Criticizes other Annotators about over-analyzing the material in order to improve the riffs.
  • Creator Backlash: Doesn't like most of the older riffs from 2012 to mid-2015 due to their over-analyzing nature. Generally aims to upload more cheesy shows to avoid unnecessary "entering".
  • Forced Meme: Has a habit of doing this, but some succeed in catching on.
  • Funny Foreigner: Is from Finland, being one of the few non-english country annotators alongside Avirosb and Tisn.
  • Ho Yay: invokedInvoked. He isn't too afraid to admit his homoerotic fictional crushes.
  • Take That Me: His entire routine for the April Fool's 2016 video.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Whenever incest is implied in material, he'll immediately start making light of it. Strangely not averted with Chichi Miko!!.
  • The Heart: His very strict hatred of over-analyzing is because he doesn't want the channel's reputation to suffer because of a few people taking their material a little too seriously.
  • Running Gag: Created plenty of them.

Mr. Yoshbert

Annotator since- Dinosaur Adventure
Annotation Color: Yellow

ShiningPokeStar

Annotator since- The Flintbones
Annotation Color: Lime Green
  • Black Humor: Uses it sometimes, such as her Driven to Suicide gag.
  • Driven to Suicide: Used to frequently shoot herself during particularly horrible moments.
    • Was briefly brought back in the April Fools 2016 special when 2014!Star shoots herself during the Robo-Koopa portion of the video, causing Current!Star to freak out.
  • Genki Girl: Is bright and full of energy almost all the time.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Plays this up for humor with Squick on occasion.

MagnumBill91

Annotator since- Donkey Kong Country Season 1 (TheAnnotationStation Run)
Annotation Color: Dark red, formerly purple
  • A Day in the Limelight: The final part of the last annotated Star Wars Droids episode was annotated entirely by him.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Started watching during the Sonic Underground/Super Mario Bros. Super Show era. His first contribution to the series was a single guest annotation for the Season 2 premiere of Mega Man.
  • Author Appeal: The ProStars episodes he annotated contain several references to the Detroit Red Wings.
    • He used to reference "WARM UP TIME! FOLLOW THAT DOLPHIN!" from Wave Race 64 whenever he got the chance.
  • Black Humor: Loves to use it whenever he can. It is now considered to be his main gimmick.
  • Driven to Suicide: Tried to kill himself with cyanide and motor oil in Felix Saves Christmas.
  • Forced Meme: During the second season of DKC, he tried to force a gag known as "Subliminal Season 1 Krusha." It originated from the infamous Ian Corlett-penned time stop episode. It was used in one later episode before getting the axe in an episode that debuted an original flash hit animation.
    • He also forced a gag about K. Rool losing more and more of his Kritters due to his bad decisions that never really caught on.
  • Grammar Nazi: He used to grammar-correct Vonny's annotations very early on.
  • One of Us: I wrote this entry.
  • Sir Not Appearing In This Episode: Has a nasty habit of randomly disappearing and reappearing for periods of time, to the point where the other annotators have thought that he was dead on more than one occasion. He's been trying to fix this in recent times.
    • His most noticeable example of doing this was being almost entirely absent during the much-loved riff of SaTAM's second season. He only annotated one episode and an 11-minute one at that.

NewStuffs

Annotator since- The Flintbones
Annotation Color: Lemon Yellow (as himself)/Black (narrating only)
  • A Day in the Limelight: Wrote the entire "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue for SatAM's second season by himself.
    • Also uploaded six videos: episode 7 of Donkey Kong Country season 2 (due to Hurp's unavailability); the channel's Sonic tribute, mentioned below; the 2016 April Fools videonote  and three bi-weekly commercial compilationsnote .
    • Also animated the Halloween Bumper shown before the Solbrain trailer.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Started following them after the Foodfight! riff.
  • Author Appeal/Running Gag: Often likes to change the title of what's being mocked.
    • Also has a tendency to make jokes based on music, to where in his initial appearances, had a habit of singing lyrics to old songs.
  • Berserk Button: Flies into this whenever he makes a joke, only for the show to do something either similar or exactly as he said it.
  • Canada, Eh?: Hails from there, and even uses 'eh' in some of his annotations.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the Woody Woodpecker and Rick Dees in Let's All Recycle!, he thought the three 'R's were "Rummage, Rape and Resuscitate".
  • The Narrator: Takes on this role for scene transitions or other events when appropriate.
  • Off Model: Will usually be the one to joke about or point out some of the animation mistakes of the material presented.
    As Micheal Jordan, after the colors of his uniform change: "This just blues my stripe."
  • On a Scale from One to Ten: Another recurring joke of his.
  • One of Us: As evident in the Spectreman riff, he's into Toku (or at least knows a fair bit about it).
    • He's also fan of Transformers, which shows in a few videos.
  • Painful Rhyme: Attempted this in the Fifth Anniversary's recap of The Night B4 Christmas. It went about as well as you'd expect.
  • Rape as Comedy: Invoked in Woody Woodpecker, as mentioned above.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Has attempted to pull this off on a few occasions, but tends to either return or get rejected. Poked fun of this in the Jesus vs. Frosty video.
  • Sir Not Appearing In This Episode: Usually disappeared as often as he appeared early on. Not so much nowadays.
  • The Stoic: Is generally calm and collected, often to the point of Dull Surprise or Deadpan Snarker territory. Though he does have his moments.
    • Seen It All: His general attitude invokes this at the same time as the above.
  • Stylistic Suck: His tribute to the channel's involvement with Sonic media, done up to look like a typical Sonic AMV. Complete with cheesy effects and transitions.
  • Take That Me: Mocks his (as of yet, still unseen) art skills in a fight scene during episode 6 of Speed Racer.
    • Eventually turns to non-malicious Self-Deprecation in the Kirby episode "Cartoon Buffoon" where a caption "GUEST ANIMATED BY NEWSTUFFS" pops up during a scene containing poorly-drawn versions of Tiff and Tuff. In reference to the above-mentioned bumper.

Wombatus777

Annotator since- Q-Bert

Annotation Color: The middle shade of grey. Previously used orange.
The eternal everyman of the group, who mostly focuses on extremely dry observational humor. He'll readily plunge into Black Comedy when the situation calls for it, though.

Countsmegula

Annotator since- ProStars

Funbreaker

Annotator since- ProStars
Annotation Color: First pink, now pink-purple.

Volture

Annotator since- Speed Racer
Annotation Color: Red
  • Ascended Fanboy: Apparently watched sometime during SatAM.
  • Cool Teacher: Has been described by other annotators as being a helpful teacher for new members.
  • Keet: Described by other annotators (Mr. Yoshbert especially) as having a lot of energy.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Enjoys some of the more hard to watch content more than other annotators, ChiChi Miko being one example.
  • True Neutral: Doesn't hold a strong opinion on most shows, and thus enjoys riffing on things more than analyzing it.

Tivaen Tuionous

Annotator since- Kirby: Right Back at Ya!
Annotation Color: Orange Brown
Young Annotator who was known as a fan of annotator VonnyFortan before being chosen.


SkakoanScarecrow

Annoying Old Party Man

Annotator since- Spectreman
Annotation Color: Teal


    Former Annotators 

Owandt

Annotator until- The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3: The Annotated Series
A former annotator who left the series some time ago. Was hated by pretty much everyone due to his incredibly forced and lame jokes.
  • And There Was Much Rejoicing: No one misses him at all. In fact, they end up mocking him sometimes by either parodying his Republican banter, or jokingly fearing that he sneaked onto the channel.
  • Anvilicious: Most of his annotations forced jokes about Republicans and technology. invoked
  • The Chew Toy
  • Dude, Not Funny!: His fellow annotators did not hesitate to Invoke this upon him whenever he posted an annotation that they didn't like. invoked
  • The Friend Nobody Likes
  • The Scrappy: Largely seen as this during the Beeupyou days. invoked

Bauglir100

Annotator since- Super Mario World - Unknown
A Crazy-Prepared annotator/fanfiction writer who handles the scheduling for the series. Known for nigh unflappable personality. Known for being a "wild card": Usually operates from the sidelines or behind-the-scenes due to technical problems with his computer. Currently discharged from the group, and that's all we're going to say.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Developed the new schedule for the Annotated Series, and planned out not only the first two shows that would be annotated during said schedule, but the shows that would immediately take their place once the shows ran out of episodes, and planned out special occasions to annotate some videos for "Intermissions".
  • He Also Did: Wrote a Silmarillion fanfiction known as The Servants Of Ungoliant, and helped various other Youtubers on their videos (mostly offering suggestions for what to put in their videos), including Rowdycmoore of TV Trash fame, Man Without A Body, and various Youtube Poopers.
  • The Heart/ The Smart Guy: Used to plan the schedules for the Annotated Series and its Intermissions, and negotiates ideas with his fellow Annotators on the subject matter that they annotate.
  • Late to the Party: When beeupyou's channel was forced to cut the series short after the collaborative annotations feature was canned by Youtube, it took several months for him to realize that the Annotated Series was still being continued on TheAnnotatXperiment. By the time he caught up, the channel was already covering Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm. He also did not rejoin the group until the season one finale of Captain N: The Game Master.
  • Nightmare Fetishist/ Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Has a dark sense of humor, though this has been downplayed lately.
  • Seen It All


    Annotated Characters 
Their own interpretations of characters. invoked

Shirt

Lucas's shirt.

Sagat

M. Bison's second-in-command. Despite supposedly being a skilled Muay Thai expert, he's actually a loser who can't even knock a chainlink fence over.

Simon Belmont

Kevin's Eccentric Mentor who is training him to be a great hero. He pretends to be a Smug Snake moron to provide learning experience to Kevin.

The Oracle of Delphius

The Big Bad who is manipulating both heroes and villains to his own mysterious ends. He poses as a wise oracle to trick people into trusting him.
  • Big Bad: No one knows his goals, but the Annotators assume he's the true villain.
  • The Chessmaster: The Annotators speculate that his advice in the pilot was simply moving Robotnik and the hedgehogs into place, since no one's given any real reason to trust him.
  • Playing Both Sides: Apparently, he deliberately engineered the war between Robotnik and the Sonic Underground to some unspecified end.
  • Treacherous Advisor: If his Alternate Character Interpretation is to be believed.

Queen Aleena

Sonic, Sonia, and Manic's neglectful and cowardly mother. She abandoned her children to their fates in order to work for the Oracle Of Delphius.
  • Abusive Parent: For how much she talks about honesty and facing reality, she sure wants to stay away from her children with gusto.
  • Dirty Coward: Seems bent on hiding from her children more than anything.
  • The Dragon: Speculated as this to the Oracle.
  • Fan Nick Name: Queen Meanie because of how Robotnik pronounced her name in one episode.
    • Also, "Weiner Leader" for the same reason.
  • Hypocrite: She's called out for this many times during her opening monologues.

Kree

Just you wait until I've got you in a dark corner. I'll give you a damn good beating!

A Pterodactyl (sometimes affectionately called a Ptrolledactyl) with a superiority complex over all the other dinosaurs due to his wings. His sarcasm and wit earned him the title of Honorary Annotator.
  • Call Back: The appearance of anything dinosaur related is sure to bring up quotes of his. Even more likely if there's another Pterodon.
  • Catch Phrase: "Mammoth mayhem!"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: A rare gem, Kree is an example of a likable character from a Dingo Pictures film.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: Universally won the annotators over with his constant mocking of the movie's scrappy, Peak.

Fiction!Don Oriolo


Caricature of the former owner of Felix the Cat. Since Felix the Cat Saves Christmas, he's portrayed as an Ultimate Evil with a penchant for horrible puns. Sometimes appears off-screen in punny materials to compliment the pun or get inspired.

Dragonbird


Very likely the best thing about Season 2 of Sonic SatAM. Annotators loved its cool design featuring the body of a bird with the wings of a dragonfly and tiny aviator googles.
  • Cartoon Creature
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Mostly because it provided some relief from Sonic's / Antoine's / Dulcy's inane antics.
  • Fan Nickname
  • Instant Messenger Pigeon: Ferried messages from the Freedom Fighters in Knothole to Uncle Chuck's hideout in Robotropolis.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: A parrot with a dragonfly's tail and wings.
  • Palette Swap: Never directly addressed on the show, but primarily had a vibrant green hue in Knothole and grey coloration in Robotropolis.
  • Put on a Bus: Seemingly replaced by more conventional-looking robotic carrier pigeons during the last episodes of the show. Some annotators clamored for its return.

Kirby Kirby Kirby


Played up as the opposite extreme of his counterpart until going through gradual Character Development.
