Eric "ERod" Rodriguez, The Blockbuster Buster

Nerdlinger (played by Eric Rodriguez)

  • Adorkable
  • Allergic To Girls: Poor Nerdlinger. He's so vulnerable to scantily clad ladies that he covers his eyes at best and downright faints at worse. He even faints at the only mention of Obscurus Lupa name and poster.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Nerdlinger has a big crush on Obscurus Lupa and is devastated when learning she's not available.
    • ERod has also to contain himself from pointing out that she's obviously out of his league.
  • Berserk Button: Everything related to the Dungeons & Dragons movie and Courtney Solomon.
    "Michael Bay, you are scum! SCUUUUUM!"
  • Characterization Marches On: Compairing him with his first appearance in the second episode, Nerlinger gradually became more energetic and showed a wider range of emotions compared to the other characters in the show.
  • Last-Name Basis: You don't find out his full name until nearly 100 episodes in.
    • Overly Long Name: (Borderline example) Eustace Xavier Aloysius Nerdlinger the third.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Beige backwards cap, taped glasses, turquoise button-up polo over a white long sleeved top, and black tie.
  • Lovable Coward: It causes him no end of grief, since being the resident expository nerd makes him ERod's go-to guy for information on many franchises, including horror franchises, so he gets constantly exposed to scary stuff. Just as much as he knows about characters like the Terminator and the Predator, he can't see their movies without being on the verge of a horror-induced fainting spell.
  • Manchild: For Gulliver's Travels, he's shown playing with his action figures and Lupa (BtVS's Willow doll) is the ultimate hero.
  • Mister Exposition: When ERod needs to explain details about a movie's background or the plot of previous movies, he often calls on Nerdlinger to do the honors.
  • Nerd: He's an interesting subversion in that the other characters in the show do not put him down for being a nerd. ERod himself actually calls on him to explain nerdy or fan-specific information, so he's also the show's resident smart guy.
  • Put on a Bus: E-Rod has announced that he will no longer play the character in the rebooted Blockbuster Buster series.
  • The Smart Guy

Oscar Gutierrez/El Lover (played by Eric Rodriguez)

  • Bilingual Bonus: In the Mummy 3 and Terminator 3, an annoyed El Lover turns out to be quite the potty mouth.
  • Catch-Phrase:
    • "'Sup Pendejos! I'm El Lover. You want to know about (the movie), I tell YOU about (the movie)"
    • Mira papi...
    • Mira, hijo de tu madre...
    • Mira, coño de tu madre...
  • Chivalrous Pervert: From the Resident Evil: Apocalypse Review:
    El Lover: Milla, Milla Yoyovitch, *pointing to lap* I got a big gun for you right here that you can borrow, baby. No, seriously, *lifts a large firearm into frame* I mean you can borrow this; I don't want to see you get hurt.
  • Dashing Hispanic:
    El Lover: Sorry papi, El Lover’s a lover not a fighter. And how I love to kick ass!
  • Distracted by the Sexy: He often gives compliments for the female characters during his prequel recaps, and his occassional review.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Obviously.
    • Also mixed with Verbal Tic, since the words he uses the most are "Mira, papi" ("Look, daddy"), "Mamacitas" ("chicks" or "babes"), "Pendejos", "... and shit" after some sentences.
  • Latin Lover: Exactly What It Says on the Tin
  • Limited Wardrobe: All black: tuque, goggles, sunglasses, hoodie over a turquoise shirt, fingerless gloves and jeans.
  • Only Sane Man: From all the other characters, El Lover is the one who has handled Insane!ERod three times.
  • Put on a Bus: E-Rod has announced that he will no longer play the character in the rebooted Blockbuster Buster series.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He is mostly seen with a Coca Cola bottle.
    "Now cue me while I sip on some soda. Daaaamn, that's some good soda, bitch."

Frederic Lombardo/Fedora Freddy (played by Eric Rodriguez)

  • The Ace: In a twisted sort of way. Fedora Freddy is an idea guy for movie executives looking to create crap movies that still make buttloads of money. Fedora Freddy basically fast-talks horrible plots into existence... and the movies make buttloads of money.
  • Alliterative Name: Though, as revealed in his Secret Origins video, it isn't his real name.
  • All There in the Manual: His real name (Frederic Lombardo) was revealed by ERod in the Secret Origins videos. It has yet to be used in his actual appearances.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite his . . . interesting decisions for other moviesnote  even he thinks that giving Jonah Hex superpowers is a bad idea.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Fedora, brown vest, white button-up shirt, and red tie.
  • Motor Mouth: Lampshaded:
    El Lover: But, just in case you missed what happened at the end of the last movie, because Fedora Freddy talks too fast, El Lover is going to tell you what went down.
  • Nice Hat
  • The Nicknamer: Refers to ERod as "Mr E".
  • Odd Friendship: Considering he is specialized in doing all those crappy decisions that piss off ERod, his friendship with him definitely fits this trope.
  • Put on a Bus: E-Rod has announced that he will no longer play the character in the rebooted Blockbuster Buster series.

SHE-Rod (played by Marsha Kent)


  • Benevolent A.I.: He is more logical and patient than his boss.
  • Cassandra Truth: JARVIS has warned ERod not to review a highly awful movie that was already reviewed by other producers, which ERod still does. It ended up as expected...
  • The Comically Serious: Whenever ERod wants to do something impulsive, he retorts with honest advice.
    "Seems like an unworthy cause, sir."
  • Expy: He verbally acknowleges that he is this, since ERod's powers can recreate elements from other movies.
  • Mr. Exposition: He is the one in charge of guiding ERod after he looses his memory.

  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Perky Goth: Nurse Cause dresses in Goth fashion and has a pink bedroom with Hello Kitty furniture.
  • Punny Name: Cause and Affect
  • Sassy Secretary: Even thought she never talks, Nurse Cause has this interaction with Dr. Affect: Gets annoyed by him giving her orders, beat him up with a plutonium piece because her Eye Candy was cut off, and flirts with ERod every time she's near the video-call.
  • The Voiceless: Limited to physical gestures.
    • Suddenly Voiced: She speaks for the first time in the Justice League top ten list.
    • Silent Bob / The Quiet One: She can speak, but only does so when necessary. She has found other ways of communication.
