The Cinema Snob
A caricature of pretentious film critics, as he reviews obscure exploitation films and pornography from the late '60s through the early '90s, though he has also reviewed the occasional more recent and widely released film.
- Aroused by Their Voice: Invoked once in The Nostalgia Critic's "You're a Rotten Dirty Bastard" Christmas special, where the Snob became the world's greatest pornstar in a world where the Critic didn't exist, his costar was aroused by his voice alone.
- Bald of Awesome: Starting in 2014, Brad has been bald.
- Byronic Hero: The Snob often he comes out as someone enduring a hard life (to which the horrible movies he watches are only a part of), but nonetheless keeps on for the sake of his public.
- "If I want X, I'll stick with Y, thank you very much!"
- "What, no X? Boo, zero stars."
- "This remake of X is weird!"
- HA HA HA – No. A frequent variation will be a forced "Hahaha!" followed by an angry growl.
- Conditioned to Accept Horror: Whenever he listens to relaxing music, images of torture, mass-murder and other assorted carnage flashes through his mind. (helps movies such as Cannibal Holocaust use such beautiful music to underscore the gore) In the Atop the Fourth Wall movie, he brings Salo to the movie watching party and is clearly having the time of his life watching it while everyone else is horrified.
- Does Not Like Shoes: He's barefoot when he does his reviews (though he'll use shoes for skits set outside of his house). Brad Jones based the Snob's appearance on an audience member at a Q&A panel for George A. Romero, who told Romero how he had interpreted Monkey Shines for something profound, and apparently that included the lack of shoes.
- Eats Babies: He tried eating a dead baby with ketchup once, but had to spit it out because it was expired.
- Everyone Has Standards:
- He reacts with fury whenever children or animals are harmed.
- Homophobic comments are a Berserk Button for him.
- Evil Sounds Raspy: He only has one line, but Brad is completely relishing doing a raspier sleaze-pimp voice in this.
- Multiple-Choice Past: Depending on what you're watching, his real name may be either Bradakin "Brad" Jones (To Boldly Flee) or Craig Golightly (The Cinema Snob Movie), and he may or may not be using the alias of "Vincent Dawn".
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Much of his persona is a loving tribute to Roger Ebert as Ebert's review of Friday the 13th Part V is what inspired the character.
- Real Men Wear Pink: An unabashed and unapologetic fan of Sex and the City, which leads to him being very angry with the two films.
- Sharp Dressed Man: Well, everything except for the lack of shoes. He's barefoot in almost every review.
- The Starscream: Ends up taking over That Guy with the Glasses in 2019, and Critic bemoans that he should have seen it coming.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Well, two out of three, anyway; he dresses in dark clothes and is snarky as hell. He's actually kind of short.
- True Art: Invoked. He believes art ought to be "foreigny" and in some cases offensive — he gave Salo a glowing review even though (or maybe because) it made him puke all the way through the video.
A hapless party animal who was whisked out of the past by a time warp to the present day, Dan subjects his dysfunctional roommates and neighbors to the cheesiest kitsch to come out of the 1980s. He also happens to live on the same street as the Cinema Snob.
- Ascended Extra: When he first showed up in the Snob's review of Caligula, he was nothing more than a throwaway gag,* but response to him was so positive that he was given his own spinoff.
- Bad "Bad Acting": When he and Rob reenact a scene from Paranoia.
- Disco Dan: As his name implies, he's permanently stuck in The '80s. Doubly so when Dan dresses up as '90s Kid for Halloween.
- Don't Explain the Joke: Dan seems to think nobody has ever heard of the eighties, even when the references he explains are painfully obvious.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: A line in the Halloween III review explains that 80s Dan fell into a time warp at the exact moment the 80s ended.
- Genie in a Bottle: Dan appears out of nowhere whenever someone opens a bottle of New Coke.
- Good Old Ways: He doesn't have much use for modern CGI.
- Hammerspace: The inner pockets of his suit have seemingly unlimited space.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Dan is oblivious that his friend Smithy is at the very least a child molester, possibly a serial killer.
- Leitmotif: There is always a classic 80's music track playing when he appears or talks, frequently A-Ha's "Take on Me."
- Meaningful Name: "80s Dan" is the name of a copyright-free music file built into Brad's video editing software.
- Perpetual Smiler: Probably because he's perpetually high on cocaine.
- The Pollyanna: Dan is optimistic to the point of stupidity. Absolutely nothing gets him down.
Kung Tai Ted
A completely talentless "martial" "artist" who exhibits fight scenes from bad chop-socky action films from his backyard. His lines are all dubbed over... by himself.
- Dirty Coward:
- When 80's Dan and Dolly find him tied up in a Neo-Nazi's basement, Ted brags about his fighting skills and offers to beat up the Nazi if they free him. Instead, he just runs away.
- He also pulls a gun on Solomon when he confronts him about trying to steal the potassium in his backyard, decidedly not something an honorable warrior would do.
- Hong Kong Dub: Whenever he speaks, his mouth moves in complete disassociation with what he's saying.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He boasts of being a great martial artist, but either gets beaten up by people who shouldn't have been beating him if a tenth of what he says is true, or just runs away. He even gets beaten up by the Cinema Snob.
- Stylistic Suck: His sketches have the production values of chop-socky martial arts films in a nutshell.
- Unknown Rival: To Solomon, who forgets about Dan's existence when Dan takes months to find and defeat him.
- What the Fu Are You Doing?: During his climactic battle with Master Kempo Dojo, Ted inflicts a Groin Attack on himself with some nunchuks. (But then, so does Kempo Dojo.)
- Wheelchair Woobie: Played for Laughs In-Universe starting with the Miami Connection review. It turns out those years of bad fighting caught up with him, so he's stuck in one.
Space Lancer Steve
A spaceman. His best (only?) friend is Ensign Munroe.
The go-to personas for Brad and Jake when they want to spoof macho attitudes. Starting out in Midnight Screenings as simply them adopting gruff voices to mock some audience members from The Hangover: Part III, they were eventually featured in the Snob's review of Can't Stop the Music, and showed up whenever the Snob reviews something with homosexual themes. Bro!Jake got later McLeaned after Jake left the site, though Bro!Brad keeps appearing sometimes.
- Armored Closet Gay: It's all but stated that they are actually gay, but try hard to deny it.
- Ascended Meme: They started off as voices spoofing specific audience members from The Hangover: Part III when Brad and Jake reviewed that movie as part of Midnight Screenings, then grew into their own characters in The Cinema Snob.
- Bus Crash: After Jake left the site, there's a scene of Bro!Brad drinking his sorrows after Bro!Jake dies tragically offscreen.
- Fan Disservice: When doing push-ups in the Crusing 57 review, Bro!Brad's ass crack is shown.
- Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: They'll try to frequently assert their manliness, up until when Bro!Jake makes Bro!Brad give him a blowjob.
- Large Ham: Both of them, but Bro!Jake especially.
- The Lad-ette: After losing Bro!Jake, Bro!Brad is auditioning new bros. One candidate is Bro!Chick (played by Sarah), who acts pretty much like the other Bros.
- Manly Gay: Or at least they think they're manly, and they're obviously gay no matter how hard they try to deny it.
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: The bloopers video shows how Brad and Jake had a hard time making the skit without laughing.
- Men Don't Cry: They call a movie "gay" when it makes them tear up.
- No Indoor Voice: They have their voices set on "gruff" all the time.
- Take That!: Bro!Brad is shown in an Irate Gamer shirt.
- Testosterone Poisoning: They constantly boast about how manly they are.
- Transparent Closet: They're obviously gay, no matter how hard they try to deny it.
- Verbal Tic: The duo tend to end their sentences in "Bro."
Jordan B. Matthews
Snob's even more pretentious twin brother who is definitely not a parody of a former colleague that Brad had a falling out with or anything, we swear.
The obnoxious, nasally-voiced, sex-obsessed loser from Who Reamed Rosie Rabbit (a Parallel Porn Title of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) who became a recurring character after the Who Reamed Rosie Rabbit 2 review.
- Casanova Wannabe: He's a sex-obsessed horndog.
- Expy: Eddie is essentially the Snob's equivalent of The Nostalgia Critic's Douchy McNitpick.
- Most Annoying Sound: Invoked. He has a nasal voice akin to a child who is constantly about to cry.
- The Scrappy: In-universe the Snob considers him this; while he can tolerate all the characters that interfere in his reviews, he clearly can't stand Eddie.
- Take That!: He is a send-off to a certain group of fans who, after Brad Jones started to devote more Christian propaganda films to The Cinema Snob, wanted him to do more reviews of porn films, much like Eddie does.
- Too Spicy For Yog Sothoth: After the appearance of Will It Fit?, the Snob tends to just sick a laptop playing it to Eddie every time he appears, and even though it's implied that he gets off the perverted and depraved things done in the porn films the Snob had reviewed through the years, Will It Fit? makes Eddie figuratively cry for his mommy.
"Will It Fit?" Host
The titular host for the Show Within a Show Will It Fit?, a web series in which the host shoves things up his ass. The host often appears alongside Eddie whenever the Snob reviews a porn parody, or just any review where the joke will fit in.
- Ass Shove: The show is titled "Will It Fit?" because the host shoves things up his ass.
- Serial Escalation: The things that the host attempts to fit ranges from foods and plants to tornadoes and the Eiffel Tower!
- The Voice: Is only heard from the laptop Eddie (and rarely the Snob) watches Will It Fit? from, or as a voice over from the Snob.
A rather unhinged character that appeared in the Darna vs The Planet Women review.
'80s Dan CharactersSee under Brad for Dan himself.
Rob the Robot
Dan's roommate and best friend (which isn't saying much), a Robotic Operating Buddy manufactured by Nintendo. Rob is an unrelenting jackass who openly lusts after Mrs. Crabtree in front of her husband. Voiced by Jake Norvell.
- Casanova Wannabe: His attempts to putting the moves on Mrs. Crabtree are always unsuccessful.
- Character Blog: He has a Twitter account.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Sometimes, on rare occasions, Rob shows a glimmer of a silver lining behind his jerkass facade. And behind that is a heart of purest coal.

A lady in the present day who ran over Dan and Rob with her car shortly after they arrived from the past, then took them in and let them stay in her house.

Played by Jillian Zurawski.
- The Fundamentalist: But only on Christmas.
Dan, Rob, and Dolly's much-suffering neighbor who drops in with his wife once an episode. He and Mrs. Crabtree despise each other, but they put on a happy facade in front of the others. He still wants to murder Rob for hitting on his wife right in front of him, though. Played by Brian Lewis.

- Comic Sutra: He shares his name with an extremely perverted sex act, "The Smitty", that was probably named after him, to the point that merely asking about Smitty in a single chat room got Dan flagged as a possible sexual predator by the FBI.

The Big Box Model
Vic Dealio's voluptuous, silent co-host on The Big Box, she presents each video and flirts with Vic. Played by Jillian Zurawski.
- Brainless Beauty: She acts this way on camera. She subverts the trope in the recorded phone conversion between her and Vic Dealio where she delivers a scathing "The Reason You Suck" Speech.
- Ms. Fanservice: It's clear that her role in The Big Box is based on how voluptuous she is.
- Sexy Santa Dress: Wore one for a Christmas episode.
- The Voiceless: She never speaks on-camera. Averted in the recorded phone conversion between her and Vic Dealio where she delivers a scathing "The Reason You Suck" Speech.

An obscure Mexican (?) wrestler (?) who wanders around conventions looking for attention in his trademark mask and tuxedo. Played by himself.note
- As Himself: So say the credits.
- Bad Boss: To his ward/assistant/manservant, El Niño.
- Beleaguered Assistant: El Niño.
- Fake Nationality: In-universe. He pretends to be Mexican.
- Gratuitous Spanish: His name is supposed to mean "The Mole Boy" but the odd word placement makes its actual meaning "The Small Mole". The name comes from a brand of mineral water that Brian once drank while drunk.
- Meaningful Name: Topo Chico is a brand of Mexican spring water.
- Small Name, Big Ego: He's insulted that people came to a convention to see some nobody named "Amy Lee Curtis" instead of him.

The host of Softly From Cable, an early-'90s Skinemax showcase for softcore not-quite-porn. She plays a flirtatious sex kitten on TV, but really hates her job. Played by Jillian Zurawski.
- Hates the Job, Loves the Limelight: Plays a flirtatious sex kitten on TV, but really hates her job.
- Ms. Fanservice: Her host job is centered on how attractive she is.
- The Tease: As a host, her job involves being flirtatious.
- Everyone Has Standards: There is only so much stupidity she will tolerate in the puns she has to read onscreen.
- Caustic Critic: If they've seen a bad movie, they will utterly and brutally trash it.
- Deadpan Snarker: Everyone.
- Erudite Stoner: Many, but especially Brad and Dave.
- Smoking Is Cool: Brad, Jake, Sarah, and Dave are confirmed smokers (Brad has since switched to e-cigarettes, though he's still an avid pot smoker, as evidenced in his Friday the 13th: Part 3D review). Jillian is an ex-smoker.
- True Companions: Despite some of the crap they give to one another and some of what they see, you get the feeling that they're all friends who do the show week after week because they just love movies and each other. As of 2015, Brad and Dave mention being friends for 33 years.
- Author Appeal: Beyond exploitation movies, he’s also a major fan of old Looney Tunes cartoons and 1980s action flicks.
- Bad Boss: Brad basically lampshaded that he sends his friends to bad movies to both laugh at their pain and make money in the process.
- Berserk Button: The writing styles of Ehren Kruger and Skip Woods. Brad loathes these two people and has rarely given a good review to any of their movies (the first was Transformers: Age of Extinction, which he felt was dumb but worked regardless).
- Bad CGI
- Terrence Malick
- Tyler Perry
- Brad has nothing but contempt for Kirk Cameron. Seems to have warmed up to him a bit (albeit sarcastically) after Saving Christmas, for how hilariously horrible and insane the movie is. As of Kirk Cameron: Revive Us, he is of the opinion that Cameron is rather harmless - at least in comparison to Dinesh D'Souza, who has become one of Brad's most detested filmmakers.
- Bad Parents if his opinion of the dad in Epic is anything to go by.
- Animal Abuse and Child Cruelty. During his Cannibal Ferox review he goes on an epic tangent and shows nothing but contempt for the director Umberto Lenzi due to the pointless killing of animals.
- Catch-Phrase: "What the fuck was that?" when a movie fails horribly, and “I really dug this movie” to movies he really likes, but not enough to put on his year-end best of list.
- If Brad ever starts off a Midnight Screenings review with a short sigh immediately after turning on the camera, chances are the film he just saw was particularly hard to sit through.
- Disco Dan: A lot of his tastes in music and film seem stuck in The '80s.
- The Gadfly: In the Smurfs review:Brad: Now, now, I didn't see the movie, so I didn't know it was gonna be bad![Jake gives Brad a Death Glare]Jillian: [to Brad] You are the Devil!
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Dave.
- The Leader: There's a reason it's called Team Snob.
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: Brad is a complete 180 from the Snob.
- The Movie Buff: His knowledge of obscure films is impressive to say the least.
- Open-Minded Parent: His mom’s a lesbian and he was allowed to basically watch whatever he wanted growing up. His first movie was even National Lampoon's Vacation!
- Nice Guy: Very much so. He'll rip a movie he's disliked to shreds, but he'll do it with a smile on his face.
"Flaming" Brian Lewis / Drunk Brian / Slaver Brian
- Amicably Divorced: With Sarah.
- Badass Beard: Has a bushy, lumberjack beard.

- Embarrassing Nickname: Slaver Brian.
- Gargle Blaster: What he drinks in the "sister series" to Brad Tries, Drunk Brian Tries.

- Official Couple: With Offscreen Leddie.
- One Steve Limit: There are actually two Brians in Team Snob, but the other goes by his last name, Irving.
- The Stoic: Compared to everyone else, he doesn't get worked up over so many things.
Brian Irving / Virtual Boyd
- Aerith and Bob: His fiancee's name is Shashi.
- Crossing the Line Twice: How he developed his identity on the site. If it's an episode with him, expect a joke so offensive that any momentum the episode had is stopped so that whoever is with him can regain composure.
- The Gadfly
- One Steve Limit: His full name is Brian Irving, but since there's already another Brian, he's referred to by his last name or as "Virtual Boyd".
- Straight Man and Wise Guy: In the Midnight Screenings videos, Irving is the wise guy to Jake's straight man. When they review movies together, the video usually ends with Irving saying something shockingly offensive and Jake reacting like a sane (and very angry) human being.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of Jerrid. Discussed in "Brad and Irving Watch Bewitched".
- Those Two Guys: Was this with Jake.
Jake Norvell / Angry Jake / Madagascar Guy
- Abusive Parents/Cerebus Retcon: Jake's reason why he hates kids being mistreated was due to living in a home wrought with domestic abuse.
- Berserk Button: Mistreatment of children/pedophilia, it seems. See: his reaction to That's My Boy, and why he had to miss Zookeeper.
Jake: I AM NOT THE ONLY GODDAMN PERSON WHO IS NAMED JAKE ON THE FUCKING PLANET, PEOPLE!!!
- In the words of Jake himself 'I hate puns!'
- Adam Sandler, even before That's My Boy.
- In the review of The Internship, he points out that he hates First World Problems.
- In his review of the worst films of 2013, he points out that he hates being referred to in the context of other fictional Jakes ("Oh, you're Jake, like Jake from _____!"), including "Jake from State Farm" (he said that two separate workers in a McDonald's called him that right before the video), and the lead character in Free Birds:
- Butt-Monkey: Brad keeps sending him to watch bad movies just to laugh at his pain.
- Also because any video featuring Jake usually get the greatest amount of hits.
- Cigarette of Anxiety: He's frequently fumbling for a cigarette after a bad movie. A good part of the The Smurfs 2 video is him looking for a cigarette lighter and then cackling in delight finding one.
- Cluster F-Bomb: Is likely to give off one of these after watching a kids movie.
- Commonality Connection: When meeting Brad's mother (who's a lesbian) he decided to lay the foundation of their friendship by saying, "We both have one thing in common; we both love pussy."
- Deadpan Snarker
- The Eeyore
- Embarrassing Nickname: 'Madagascar Guy'

- Fire-Forged Friends: Claimed to have formed this relationship with Irving after the two of them saw The Smurfs together.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: There's a reason he's Angry Jake. His tirades against bad puns in particular are quite a sight!
- Hidden Depths: He works two jobs. One as a pizza delivery driver and another as, of all things, a masseur.
- Humiliation Conga: Seems to suffer this at the hands of theatre staff while going to see kids movies.
- Put on a Bus: Due to personal conflict between Brad and Jake, Jake will no longer be appearing on the site in the foreseeable future.
- Quirky Curls
- Straight Man and Wise Guy: Straight man to Irving's wise guy. See above.
- Spiders Are Scary: He hates spiders with a passion equal to bad puns. During the Dragonball Z midnight review he steps out of the car and asks Jillian to kill one, refusing to return until it's gone.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: Whenever he sees a movie that isn't outright torture."I've saw a good movie today. I've got nothing."
- Pretty much demanded by viewers after seeing That's My Boy, where his rage was so great as to invoke Tranquil Fury viewers plead to Brad to let him see a good movie. Not too long after, he "guest starred" in the The Amazing Spider-Man video, where the first question was "Why are you here?"
- The Croods is a family movie that was smart, entertaining for adults, contained no puns except a visual one, and the children in the audience at the midnight screening were adorable and well-behaved. It was the opposite of everything that The Smurfs did to drive him mad.
- He definitely had a great time in The LEGO Movie, Frozen, and How to Train Your Dragon 2.
- Dragonball Z: Battle of the Gods was a pure moment of fanboy joy for Jake.
- Tranquil Fury: He often starts like this. He doesn't usually end a review like it though.
- Unperson: Since March 2015, Brad, nor any other members of Team Snob have kept up correspondence with him.
- Current videos for Midnight Screenings that reference older videos that Jake was a part of often tend to leave him out when they're brought up.
- Averted (in the "not even mentioned" sense) in the Jesus, Bro! 12-hour livestream, in which numerous commenters asked Team Snob about Jake - Dave and Irving made verbally clear that they had burned their bridges with him and were just as glad to be rid of him as Brad was.
- Subverted in the Midnight Screenings for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales where at one point, when Brad briefly talks about their experience seeing the previous Pirates film On Stranger Tides (which Jake was a part of) he refers to the video having "Shit-for-Brains" in it, a clear reference to Jake.
- Weirdness Magnet
- Who Shot JFK?: Averted. Jake cannot stand the conspiracy theories surrounding JFK's assassination.
- Bald of Awesome
- Bus Crash: Parodied—Brad's character in Brad and Irving says he was last seen boarding a plane with Henry Blake.
- Dumb Muscle: Had a tendency to play these types of characters due to his size and intimidating appearance.
- Embarrassing Nickname: "Baldy McGiggles" and "Mister Potatohead", thanks to Jake.
- The Hyena: Laughs a lot. See above for what his nickname is.
- Put on a Bus: According to Brad himself, Jerrid was fired due to personal problems during filming and due to him saying nasty things about Jillian to the fans behind her back, though they have reconciled since.
- Commuting on a Bus: Appearances in 80's Dan, "Brad Tries Aether Cola", and the occasional Midnight Screenings.
- Relationship Revolving Door: A platonic example with Brad. They have a very on-again, off-again friendship.

- Team Pet
- A Day in the Limelight: She played the main character in The Hooker with a Heart of Gold.
- Amicably Divorced: With Brian Lewis. She kept his last name until she married Dave.
- Brutal Honesty: She really doesn't relent when describing things. For example, she described the plot of The Great Gatsby as 'So this dude falls in love with this vapid cunt of a woman, she fucks him over and he dies' and she started the review of That's My Boy with 'Pedophilia. Hey, everyone, guess what's funny? It's pedophilia.'
- Country Matters: After Dave, she is the next most likely person to use the word to describe particularly loathsome characters.
- Fanservice: Not nearly as much as Jillian, but she appeared in a bikini for a moment in The Cinema Snob Movie.
- Human Notepad: She tends to write the trailers/previews on her arms. Lampshaded in one review when Brian asks "what the hell is that on your arms?"
- Nice Gal: She is by far the calmest of the Midnight Screenings reviewers.
- Official Couple: With Dave. They have since married, and became the first parents in Team Snob.
- Only Sane Man: Especially when she's reviewing things alongside Jake.
- Stealth Pun: She throws these out occasionally.
- Typecasting: She's been cast as a hooker in Brad Jones' productions multiple times.
- What Beautiful Eyes!: To quote Jake, "You have pretty eyes!"
- Yaoi Fangirl
- A Day in the Limelight: She was the anchor of Softly From Cable (which sadly only lasted two episodes and a couple of scenes in other reviews).
- Amicably Divorced: With Brad.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She may seem like one of the saner members of the cast, but when she gets angry, watch out.

- Bi the Way: She mentions being bisexual in the Silent Hill: Revelations midnight review.
- Fangirl: Plays this Upto Eleven for the Breaking Dawn Part 2 Review.
- Fanservice: Had a brief topless scene in The Cinema Snob Movie.

- Made of Iron: She's prone to drinking things that make other people cry and barely turning a hair.
- Put on a Bus: She hasn't appeared in a Midnight Screening video since August 2014. Unlike Jerrid, it's not for personal problems, it's simply because she doesn't like doing them anymore.
- Troll: Both in-universe and out-universe. In-universe, she pretended that her favorite movie was Moment By Moment to get the Snob to review it (when she'd never actually seen it), and out-universe, she spends most of her Midnight Screening of R.I.P.D with Jake making him angrier and angrier and laughing as he rages.
- Typecasting: She tends to end up in roles played for Fanservice.

- Berserk Button: Anything to do with Tyler Perry.
- Bile Fascination: He loves going to Christian movies explicitly due to this trope.
- Breakout Character: Was featured in more videos from 2013 onwards.

- Drives Like Crazy: Brad & Sarah compare his driving to Augustus'.

- He now has his own Embarrassing Nickname in "Hipster Dave".
- Hair-Trigger Temper
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: Had one after seeing "A Madea Christmas." In his Worst of 2013, he said that he almost threw away all the movies he owned because of it.
- Hidden Depths: He's an accomplished artist, even painting and designing The Cinema Snob Movie poster. He's also given Brad the Stoned Gremlin statue that named his production company.
- Hipster: The closest thing Team Snob has to one. There's a reason he's called "The Indie Movie Guy" and "Hipster Dave".
- Hollywood Atheist: Refers to Christians in the movies he watch as "fucking insane" and chastises the main character of War Room for believing in a "make believe deity." In real life, however, he really doesn't give a fuck as long as no one is pushing their beliefs on him.
- Official Couple: With Sarah.
- Only Sane Man: He's easily the most analytical of the group, even when his emotions get in the way.
- Name McAdjective: Cunty McMomface
- Smoking Is Cool: Is usually never seen without a cigarette
- Throw the Dog a Bone: After watching movies such as Temptation, Scary Movie 5, and Man of Steel, he got to see Pacific Rim, a movie he had been anticipating and liked.
Leddie Alexander Lewis / Off-Screen Leddie
- Corpsing: Rare, but it happens (see Cunty McMomface)
- Department of Redundancy Department: Off-Screen Leddie is off screen.
- She Who Must Not Be Seen: Technically at almost every movie Brian Lewis (her husband) attends, she either is scrunched down in the back seat, or running the camera (depending on how many people are there). In The Bye Bye Man, she's hiding herself behind the passenger seat. She briefly appears at the end of the Paranormal Activity 4 review.
- Kick the Dog: Though not by choice. Brian had to beg Leddie go with him to see Grown Ups 2, with the promise that they'd see Pacific Rim beforehand (she really didn't want to see Adam Sandler). Twenty minutes into the Rim, the projector crapped out. There was no such mercy at Grown Ups 2.
Brian: (as AMC employee) "Well, the projector for Oblivion broke, so were just gonna play Grown Ups 2 again."Dave: (Laughing) "She would've dumped your ass after that."
- The other members of the team bring up how often he takes her to bad movies and that while she's a trooper, they don't understand why she lets him get away with it.
- The trope is even parodied in the Brian & Dave Worst of 2013", where he tells a story of convincing Leddie to go see Oblivion (2013) as part of a special AMC program, where he jokes about the possibility of this happening:
- The Voice: You won't even know she's there until either she's specifically asked a question or something makes her break.
Brad Jones' mom.
- Cool Old Lady: Being Brad's mom doesn't hurt either.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Was credited as Lemon Drink Lady in Brad & Jerrid review The Room.
- Lipstick LesbianBrad: That's how you introduced yourself to my mom.Jake: Hell yeah it was. "Hi ya doing, my name is Jake, I also love pussy, we at least have one thing in common that we can talk about right now, is pussy, let's talk about that."Brad: My mom looks at me, "I like where this guy's head is at."
- One of the Guys: Aside of the fact she is indeed Brad's mom, she is treated the same (and has similar opinions and sense of humor) as the rest of the Team.
- Open-Minded Parent
- Team Mom: Literally, in Brad's case.
- Ascended Fanboy: Was a fan of Brad's when they met in early 2015. Since they started dating, she's started showing up in his videos, particularly Midnight Screenings.
- Commuting on a Bus: Lives in a different state than the rest of Team Snob, so there are sometimes long periods of time between her appearances on the site.
- New Meat: The newest member of Team Snob, making her debut in May 2015.
- Put on a Bus: Broke up with Brad three days after her birthday.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Probably her most noticeable feature. Sometimes combines it with red lipstick for extra effect.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The "tomboy" to Sarah's "girly girl."
- Valley Girl: To an extent; she's compared herself to Lynda from Halloween and commenters have pointed out how frequently she uses the word "like" as a filler word.
- Youthful Freckles: Is the youngest of Team Snob, and the only one to have freckles (or, at least, the only one to have freckles prominent enough to be seen on video).
Ryan / Trident Guy
- Badass Bystander: In Sharknado 2, where he kills a shark with a trident.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer/Hidden Depths: Edits for various films, many by The Asylum, and is noted by Brad to be the most professional one in Team Snob, which is why he ended up directing The Cinema Snob Movie
- Innocent Bystander: As Dave nearly assaults Irving in the Tyler Perry's Temptation review.
- Sharp Dressed Man: Lampshaded by Brad as Ryan is the only one who has a "real job".
- Special Guest: In the Midnight Screenings Sharknado 2 review, as he made a cameo in the film.
Because Allison Pregler lives close to Brad, she's become his frequent Midnight Screenings co-reviewer for bad animated films and RiffTrax'' presents events (and the occasional comedy).
- Canon Immigrant: From her own shows to Brad's.
Laura Luke Jones
Brad Jones' wife.
- A Day in the Limelight: Before becoming a recurring reviewer in Midnight Screenings starting with Maze Runner: The Death Cure, she had a leading role in Brad's movie Disco, and did a Carrie Bradshaw impression in the Snob's reviews of the Sex and the City film.
- The Cutie: Great looks, and an affable personality that matches.
- She Who Must Not Be Seen: At first, she hid herself in the backseat as whoever came with Brad reviewed the movie with him.
- Official Couple: Brad's wife.
