!Brad's Characters
[[folder: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.
* ArousedByTheirVoice: Invoked once in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'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.
%%* BadassBaritone
%%* BadassBeard
* BaldOfAwesome: Starting in 2014, Brad has been bald.
* ButtMonkey: At the hands of Bastard Film Brain, who repeatedly prank calls him and claims to have slept with every female relative he has. He's especially the target of misfortune in the ''Film/HeavensGate'' review due to ExecutiveMeddling.
* ByronicHero: 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.
* CatchPhrase:
** "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!"
** HaHaHaNo. A frequent variation will be a forced "Hahaha!" followed by an angry growl.
* CausticCritic: He actually ''is'' modeled on snobbish film critics who refuse to adjust their standards, even when reviewing schlock. He has made frequent jibes at the hypocrisies of real-life critics as well.
* TheComicallySerious: The Snob's serious demeanor makes his reactions to reviewing schlock all the funnier.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Whenever he listens to relaxing music, images of torture, mass-murder and other assorted carnage flashes through his mind. (helps movies such as ''Film/CannibalHolocaust'' use such beautiful music to underscore the gore) In the ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' 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.''
* DeadpanSnarker: To an almost insane degree.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: He's barefoot when he does his reviews (though he'll use shoes for skits set outside of his house).
* EatsBabies: He tried eating a dead baby with ketchup once, but had to spit it out because it was expired.
* EveryoneHasStandards:
** He reacts with fury whenever children or animals are harmed.
** Homophobic comments are a BerserkButton for him.
* EvilSoundsRaspy: He only has one line, but Brad is completely relishing doing a raspier sleaze-pimp voice [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-f8YMKYsrc in this]].
* {{Jerkass}}: The Snob is most of the time an obnoxious individual. Even at his best, he still gives a basic air of snobby, sneering, self-centered prickery.
* MultipleChoicePast: Depending on what you're watching, his real name may be either Bradakin "Brad" Jones (''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'') or Craig Golightly (''Film/TheCinemaSnobMovie''), and he may or may not be using the alias of "Vincent Dawn".
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Much of his persona is a loving tribute to Creator/RogerEbert as Ebert's review of ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning Friday the 13th Part V]]'' is what inspired the character.
* RealMenWearPink: An unabashed and unapologetic fan of ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', which leads to him being very angry with the [[Film/SexAndTheCity two]] [[Film/SexAndTheCity2 films]].
* SharpDressedMan: Well, everything except for the lack of shoes. He's barefoot in almost every review.
* SirSwearsALot: His dialogue consists of a noticeably high amount of swearing.
* TheStarscream: Ends up taking over That Guy with the Glasses in 2019, and Critic bemoans that he should have seen it coming.
* StoicSpectacles: His glasses add to his already stoic persona.
* StrawCritic: He's the caricature ''avant-garde'' enthusiast who only likes TrueArt, which is, of course, angsty, foreign, and foreign.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Well, two out of three, anyway; he dresses in dark clothes and is snarky as hell. He's actually kind of short.
* TrueArt: 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.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Invoked. Whenever he finds an incoherent, surreal, symbolism-packed movie, he says that must mean that it's okay to like it.

[[folder:80's Dan]]

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.
* AscendedExtra: When he first showed up in the Snob's review of ''Caligula,'' he was nothing more than a throwaway gag,[[labelnote:*]]He interrupts the video as all Brad's other characters have done, only for the Snob to point out that he doesn't exist; this causes him to instantly fade from existence.[[/labelnote]] but response to him was so positive that he was given his own spinoff.
* BadBadActing: When he and Rob [[http://thecinemasnob.com/2011/06/07/80s-dan-and-rob-reenact-a-scene-from-paranoia.aspx reenact a scene]] from ''Film/{{Paranoia|2011}}''.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
%%* CoolShades
* DiscoDan: As his name implies, he's permanently stuck in TheEighties. Doubly so when Dan dresses up as '90s Kid for Halloween.
* DontExplainTheJoke: Dan seems to think nobody has ever heard of the eighties, even when the references he explains are painfully obvious.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: A line in the ''[[Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch Halloween III]]'' review explains that 80s Dan fell into a time warp at the exact moment the 80s ended.
* GenieInABottle: Dan appears out of nowhere whenever someone opens a bottle of New Coke.
* GoodOldWays: He doesn't have much use for modern CGI.
* {{Hammerspace}}: The inner pockets of his suit have seemingly unlimited space.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: 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."
* MeaningfulName: "80s Dan" is the name of a copyright-free music file built into Brad's video editing software.
* PerpetualSmiler: Probably because he's perpetually high on cocaine.
* ThePollyanna: Dan is optimistic to the point of stupidity. Absolutely nothing gets him down.

[[folder: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.
* DirtyCoward:
** 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.
* HongKongDub: Whenever he speaks, his mouth moves in complete disassociation with what he's saying.
* SmallNameBigEgo: 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.
* StylisticSuck: His sketches have the production values of chop-socky martial arts films in a nutshell.
* UnknownRival: To Solomon, who forgets about Dan's existence when Dan takes months to find and defeat him.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: During his climactic battle with Master Kempo Dojo, Ted inflicts a GroinAttack on himself with some nunchuks. (But then, so does Kempo Dojo.)
* WheelchairWoobie: PlayedForLaughs InUniverse starting with the ''Film/MiamiConnection'' review. [[spoiler:It turns out those years of bad fighting caught up with him, so he's stuck in one.]]
%%* WimpFight

%%[[folder:Vic Dealio]]
%%The host of ''The Big Box'', a sleazy late-night infomercial spokesman who introduces classic exploitation %%films in the titular "big box" (clamshell video cases) while flirting with his co-host, the Big Box Model.

%%* TheVoice

[[folder:Space Lancer Steve]]

A spaceman. His best (only?) friend is [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Ensign Munroe]].
* TheCameo: Steve has had only one appearance, one which lasted for only a few seconds, just because all of Linkara's characters had a counterpart among Brad's characters except Ensign Munroe.
* TheEeyore: In his one appearance, Steve does not come across as a happy person.

[[folder:The Bros]]

The go-to personas for Brad and Jake when they want to spoof macho attitudes. Starting out in ''WebVideo/MidnightScreenings'' as simply them adopting gruff voices to mock some audience members from ''[[Film/TheHangover The Hangover: Part III]]'', they were eventually featured in the Snob's review of ''Film/CantStopTheMusic'', 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.
* ArmoredClosetGay: It's all but stated that they are actually gay, but try hard to deny it.
* AscendedMeme: They started off as voices spoofing specific audience members from ''[[Film/TheHangover The Hangover: Part III]]'' when Brad and Jake reviewed that movie as part of ''WebVideo/MidnightScreenings'', then grew into their own characters in ''The Cinema Snob''.
* BusCrash: After Jake left the site, there's a scene of Bro!Brad [[DrowningMySorrows drinking his sorrows]] after Bro!Jake dies tragically offscreen.
* FanDisservice: When doing push-ups in the ''Crusing 57'' review, Bro!Brad's ass crack is shown.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: They'll try to frequently assert their manliness, [[spoiler:up until when Bro!Jake makes Bro!Brad give him a blowjob.]]
* LargeHam: Both of them, but Bro!Jake especially.
* TheLadette: 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.
* ManlyGay: Or at least they think they're manly, and they're obviously gay [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday no matter how hard they try to deny it]].
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: The bloopers video shows how Brad and Jake had a hard time making the skit without laughing.
* MenDontCry: They call a movie "gay" when it makes them tear up.
* NoIndoorVoice: They have their voices set on "gruff" all the time.
* TakeThat: Bro!Brad is shown in an [[WebVideo/TheIrateGamer Irate Gamer]] shirt.
* TestosteronePoisoning: They constantly boast about how manly they are.
* TransparentCloset: They're obviously gay, [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday no matter how hard they try to deny it]].
* VerbalTic: The duo tend to end their sentences in "Bro."

[[folder:Jordan B. Matthews]]

Snob's even more pretentious twin brother who is definitely not a parody of a former [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh colleague]] that Brad had a falling out with or anything, we swear.
* EpilepticTrees: His tendency in-universe to give more profound meanings to movies that clearly don't have them sometimes leads to this.
* ShoutOut / MeaningfulName: His name is another alias for Italian director Creator/BrunoMattei, much like the Snob’s name of Vincent Dawn.
* TakeThat: His over-analytical view of everything makes him a clear parody of ''WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh''[='s=] Kyle "Oancitizen" Kallgren.


The obnoxious, nasally-voiced, sex-obsessed loser from ''Who Reamed Rosie Rabbit'' (a {{Parallel Porn Title|s}} of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'') who became a recurring character after the ''Who Reamed Rosie Rabbit 2'' review.
* CasanovaWannabe: He's a sex-obsessed horndog.
* {{Expy}}: Eddie is essentially the Snob's equivalent of ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic''[='s=] Douchy [=McNitpick=].
* MostAnnoyingSound: Invoked. He has a nasal voice akin to a child who is constantly about to cry.
* TheScrappy: 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.
* TakeThat: 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.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: After the appearance of ''[[AssShove 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.

[[folder:"Will It Fit?" Host]]

The titular host for the ShowWithinAShow ''Will It Fit?'', a web series in which the host [[AssShove shoves things up his ass]]. The host often appears alongside [[TheScrappy Eddie]] whenever the Snob reviews a porn parody, or just any review where the joke [[JustForPun will fit in]].
* AssShove: The show is titled "Will It Fit?" because the host shoves things up his ass.
* SerialEscalation: The things that the host attempts to fit ranges from foods and plants to tornadoes and the Eiffel Tower!
* TheVoice: Is only heard from the laptop Eddie (and rarely the Snob) watches ''Will It Fit?'' from, or as a voice over from the Snob.

[[folder:Walt Right]]

A rather [[AxCrazy unhinged]] character that appeared in the Darna vs The Planet Women review.
* CreepyMonotone: He tends to talk like this.
* PunnyName: It's a combination of [[Series/BreakingBad Walter White]] and the infamous "Alt-Right" movement.
* TakeThat: Walt is essentially a way for Brad to make fun of trolly conservative individuals that happen to come across his videos.


!'80s Dan Characters

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.

* IncestIsRelative: In one episode of Birds in the Bush, the Sweenz was apparently planning to seduce his grandmother even ''before'' he accidentally switched grandmas at the airport.
* TheOtherDarrin: [[invoked]] In "The Sweenz", he replaces Jillian in the role of Dolly... until Jillian shows up and they realize he's an impostor.
* PaperThinDisguise: No one realizes that he isn't actually Dolly until the real Dolly shows up.
* StylisticSuck: Everything about him.

!Other Characters
[[folder: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.

* MsFanservice: It's clear that her role in ''The Big Box'' is based on how voluptuous she is.
* SexySantaDress: Wore one for a Christmas episode.

* AsHimself: So say the credits.
* BadBoss: To his ward/assistant/manservant, El Niño.
* BeleagueredAssistant: El Niño.
* FakeNationality: In-universe. He pretends to be Mexican.
* GratuitousSpanish: 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.
%%* {{Jerkass}}
%%* MaskedLuchador
* MeaningfulName: Topo Chico is a brand of Mexican spring water.
%%* MilesGloriosus
* SmallNameBigEgo: He's insulted that people came to a convention to see some nobody named "[[Creator/JamieLeeCurtis Amy Lee Curtis]]" instead of him.

!Team Snob
[[folder:In General]]
* CausticCritic: If they've seen a bad movie, they will utterly and brutally trash it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Everyone.
* EruditeStoner: Many, but especially Brad and Dave.
* SmokingIsCool: 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.
* TrueCompanions: 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 [[DoingItForTheArt 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.

[[folder:Brad Jones]]

* AuthorAppeal: Beyond exploitation movies, he’s also a major fan of old WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoons and [[TheEighties 1980s]] [[ActionAdventure action]] flicks.
* BadBoss: Brad basically [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] that he sends his friends to bad movies to both laugh at their pain and make money in the process.
* BerserkButton: 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 ''{{Film/Transformers Age Of Extinction}}'', which he felt was dumb but worked regardless).
** Bad CGI
** Creator/TerrenceMalick
** Creator/TylerPerry
** Brad has nothing but contempt for Kirk Cameron. Seems to have warmed up to him a bit (albeit sarcastically) after ''{{Film/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 [[DocumentaryOfLies 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 ''Film/CannibalFerox'' review he goes on an epic tangent and shows nothing but contempt for the director Umberto Lenzi due to the pointless killing of animals.
* CatchPhrase: "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 ''WebVideo/MidnightScreenings'' review with a short sigh immediately after turning on the camera, chances are the film he just saw was particularly hard to sit through.
* DiscoDan: A lot of his tastes in music and film seem stuck in {{Main/The Eighties}}.
* TheGadfly: In the ''[[Film/TheSmurfs 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 DeathGlare]
-->'''Jillian:''' [to Brad] You are the Devil!
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Dave.
* TheLeader: There's a reason it's called ''Team Snob''.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Brad is a complete 180 from the Snob.
* TheMovieBuff: His knowledge of obscure films is impressive to say the least.
* OpenMindedParent: His mom’s a lesbian and he was allowed to basically watch whatever he wanted growing up. His first movie was even {{Film/National Lampoons Vacation}}!
* NiceGuy: Very much so. He'll rip a movie he's disliked to shreds, but he'll do it with a smile on his face.

[[folder: Brian]]
!!"Flaming" Brian Lewis / Drunk Brian / Slaver Brian

* AmicablyDivorced: With Sarah.
* BadassBeard: Has a bushy, lumberjack beard.
* BerserkButton: While not as bad as when it first started, he is quick to shut down, down play, and ignore that having been labeled Slaver Brian ever happened.
* BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce: What he reviews on ''Flaming Brian's Kitchen''.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Slaver Brian.
* GargleBlaster: What he drinks in the "sister series" to ''Brad Tries'', ''Drunk Brian Tries''.
* TheLancer: He's usually paired with Brad, and appears in just as many videos.
* LethalChef: He has a show in which he tries out different insanely hot chili sauces, which he makes his friends try, usually by dipping otherwise palatable food in them.
* OfficialCouple: With Offscreen Leddie.
* OneSteveLimit: There are actually two Brians in Team Snob, but the other goes by his last name, Irving.
* TheStoic: Compared to everyone else, he doesn't get worked up over so many things.
** NotSoStoic: Most of the time. See his reactions to Creator/TylerPerry movies and ''[[Film/GrownUps Grown Ups 2]]''.

[[folder: Irving]]
!!Brian Irving / Virtual Boyd

* AerithAndBob: His fiancee's name is Shashi.
* CrossingTheLineTwice: [[invoked]]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.
* TheGadfly
* OneSteveLimit: 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".
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: 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.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Of Jerrid. [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in "Brad and Irving Watch Bewitched".
* ThoseTwoGuys: Was this with Jake.

!!Jake Norvell / Angry Jake / Madagascar Guy

* AbusiveParents[=/=]CerebusRetcon: Jake's reason why he hates kids being mistreated was due to living in a home wrought with domestic abuse.
* BerserkButton: Mistreatment of children/pedophilia, it seems. See: his reaction to ''That's My Boy'', and why he had to miss ''Zookeeper''.
** In the words of Jake himself [[JustForPun 'I hate puns!']]
** Creator/AdamSandler, even before ''That's My Boy''.
** In the review of ''The Internship'', he points out that he hates FirstWorldProblems.
** 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 UsefulNotes/McDonalds called him that right before the video), and the lead character in ''WesternAnimation/FreeBirds'':
* ButtMonkey: 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.
* CigaretteOfAnxiety: 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.
* ClusterFBomb: Is likely to give off one of these after watching a kids movie.
* CommonalityConnection: 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."
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheEeyore
* EmbarrassingNickname: 'Madagascar Guy'
* EtTuBrute: Jake going behind Brad's back and stealing his girlfriend was the reason he was kicked off the website.
* FireForgedFriends: Claimed to have formed this relationship with Irving after the two of them saw ''TheSmurfs'' together.
* HairTriggerTemper: There's a reason he's Angry Jake. His tirades against bad puns in particular are quite a sight!
* HiddenDepths: He works two jobs. One as a pizza delivery driver and another as, of all things, '''a masseur.'''
* HumiliationConga: Seems to suffer this at the hands of theatre staff while going to see kids movies.
* {{Jerkass}}
* PutOnABus: Due to personal conflict between Brad and Jake, Jake will no longer be appearing on the site in the foreseeable future.
* QuirkyCurls
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Straight man to Irving's wise guy. See above.
* SpidersAreScary: 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.
* ThrowTheDogABone: 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 ''Film/ThatsMyBoy'', where his rage was so great as to invoke TranquilFury viewers plead to Brad to let him see a good movie. Not too long after, he "guest starred" in the ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' 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|pun}} 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 ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'', ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2''.
** ''Dragonball Z: Battle of the Gods'' was a pure moment of fanboy joy for Jake.
* TranquilFury: He often starts like this. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge He doesn't usually]] ''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge end]]'' [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge 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 ''Film/JesusBro'' 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 ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales'' where at one point, when Brad briefly talks about their experience seeing the previous Pirates film ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides 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.
* WeirdnessMagnet
* WhoShotJFK: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Jake cannot stand the conspiracy theories surrounding JFK's assassination.

!!Jerrid Foiles

* BaldOfAwesome
* BusCrash: Parodied--Brad's character in ''Brad and Irving'' says he was last seen boarding a plane with [[Series/{{Mash}} Henry Blake]].
* ButtMonkey
* DumbMuscle: Had a tendency to play these types of characters due to his size and intimidating appearance.
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Baldy [=McGiggles=]" and "Mister Potatohead", thanks to Jake.
* TheHyena: Laughs a lot. See above for what his nickname is.
* PutOnABus: 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.
** CommutingOnABus: Appearances in ''80's Dan'', "Brad Tries Aether Cola", and the occasional Midnight Screenings.
* RelationshipRevolvingDoor: A platonic example with Brad. They have a ''very'' on-again, off-again friendship.

Brad Jones' cat.
* CuteKitten
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: Inverted with him and his nemesis, Spoony's female dog Oreo.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: He often shows up climbing the sofa in Brad's vlogs.
* HostileShowTakeover: He once hijacked Oreo's Website/{{Twitter}} account.
* RuleOfCute
* SitcomArchnemesis: To [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony's]] dog, Oreo.
* TalkingAnimal: He sometimes talks to Brad in a voice that sounds a lot like Vic Dealio's.
* TeamPet

!!Sarah Gobble

* ADayInTheLimelight: She played the main character in ''WebVideo/TheHookerWithAHeartOfGold''.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AmicablyDivorced: With Brian Lewis. She kept his last name until she married Dave.
* BrutalHonesty: She really doesn't relent when describing things. For example, she described the plot of ''Film/TheGreatGatsby'' 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.'
* CountryMatters: 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''.
* HumanNotepad: 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?"
* [[NiceGuy Nice Gal]]: She is by far the calmest of the Midnight Screenings reviewers.
* OfficialCouple: With Dave. They have since married, and became the first parents in Team Snob.
* OnlySaneMan: Especially when she's reviewing things alongside Jake.
* StealthPun: She throws these out occasionally.
* {{Typecasting}}: She's been cast as a hooker in Brad Jones' productions multiple times.
* WhatBeautifulEyes: To quote Jake, "''You have pretty eyes!''"
* YaoiFangirl

!!Jillian Zurawski

* ADayInTheLimelight: She was the anchor of ''Softly From Cable'' (which sadly only lasted two episodes and a couple of scenes in other reviews).
* AmicablyDivorced: With Brad.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She may seem like one of the saner members of the cast, but when she gets angry, watch out.
** She's also not above winding Jake up for laughs.
* BiTheWay: She mentions being bisexual in the ''Silent Hill: Revelations'' midnight review.
* FanGirl: Plays this UptoEleven for the ''Breaking Dawn Part 2'' Review.
* FanService: Had a brief topless scene in ''The Cinema Snob Movie''.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Her last name is pronounced "zuh-ROW-ski".
* MadeOfIron: She's prone to drinking things that make other people cry and barely turning a hair.
* PutOnABus: She hasn't appeared in a Midnight Screening video since August 2014. Unlike Jerrid, it's not for personal problems, [[CreatorBacklash it's simply because she doesn't like doing them anymore]].
** TheBusCameBack: She's back to doing episodes with the ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'' review.
* {{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}}.

!!Dave Gobble / Max Force

* AwesomeMcCoolName: ''Max Force'' sounds like an action hero name.
* BerserkButton: Anything to do with Creator/TylerPerry.
** Also talking during a movie, as the people who were sitting behind him in ''{{Film/Battleship}}'', ''Film/{{RoboCop|2014}}' and ''God's Not Dead'' found out.
** During the summer series of 2013, getting the trailer for ''{{Film/Prisoners}}'' over and over was another one.
* BileFascination: [[invoked]] He loves going to Christian movies explicitly due to this trope.
* BreakoutCharacter: Was featured in more videos from 2013 onwards.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Brad.
* CigaretteOfAnxiety: Is often seen smoking after a particularly bad movie.
* ClusterFBomb: Rivals Jake in this regard.
* CountryMatters: Dishes a few of these out in the Tyler Perry movies he had to see.
** He calls Kim Kardashian's character in ''Temptation'' a "dumb cunt" and adds that she does such a bad job portraying a dumb cunt, he has a hard time believe she is one in real life.
** He also refers to a particularly {{Jerkass}} character in ''A Madea Christmas'' as "Cunty [=McMomface=]".
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Brad & Sarah compare his driving to [[Literature/TheFaultInOurStars Augustus']].
* TheEeyore
* EmbarrassingNickname: While he didn't give the nickname Slaver Brian to him, he's quick to be the one who brings it back up.
** He now has his own EmbarrassingNickname in "Hipster Dave".
* HairTriggerTemper
* HeroicBSOD: 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.
* HiddenDepths: He's an accomplished artist, even painting and designing ''Film/TheCinemaSnobMovie'' 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".
* HollywoodAtheist: 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.
* OfficialCouple: With Sarah.
* OnlySaneMan: He's easily the most analytical of the group, even when [[Film/ManOfSteel his emotions]] get in the way.
* NameMcAdjective: Cunty [=McMomface=]
* SmokingIsCool: Is usually never seen without a cigarette
* ThrowTheDogABone: After watching movies such as ''Temptation'', ''Film/ScaryMovie5'', and ''Film/ManOfSteel'', he got to see ''Film/PacificRim'', a movie he had been anticipating and liked.

!!Leddie Alexander Lewis / Off-Screen Leddie

* {{Corpsing}}: Rare, but it happens (see Cunty [=McMomface=])
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Off-Screen Leddie is off screen.
* SheWhoMustNotBeSeen: 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. [[spoiler:She briefly appears at the end of the ''Paranormal Activity 4'' review.]]
* KickTheDog: Though not by choice. Brian had to ''beg'' Leddie go with him to see ''Film/GrownUps'' 2, with the promise that they'd see ''Film/PacificRim'' beforehand (she ''really'' didn't want to see Creator/AdamSandler). Twenty minutes into the ''Rim'', the projector crapped out. There was no such mercy at ''Grown Ups 2''.
** 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 ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}'' as part of a special AMC program, where he jokes about the possibility of this happening:
-->'''Brian''': (as AMC employee) "Well, the projector for ''Film/{{Oblivion|2013}}'' broke, so were just gonna play ''Grown Ups 2'' again."
-->'''Dave''': (Laughing) "She would've dumped your ass after that."
* TheVoice: You won't even know she's there until either she's specifically asked a question or something makes her [[{{Corpsing}} break]].

[[folder:Leslie Jones]]
Brad Jones' mom.
* CoolOldLady: Being Brad's mom doesn't hurt either.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Was credited as ''Lemon Drink Lady'' in Brad & Jerrid review Film/TheRoom.
* LipstickLesbian
--> '''Brad''': 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."
* OneOfTheGuys: 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.
* OpenMindedParent
* TeamMom: Literally, in Brad's case.

!!Violet Rinorea

* AscendedFanboy: 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.
* CommutingOnABus: 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.
* NewMeat: The newest member of Team Snob, making her debut in May 2015.
* PutOnABus: Broke up with Brad three days after her birthday.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Probably her most noticeable feature. Sometimes combines it with red lipstick for extra effect.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The "tomboy" to Sarah's "girly girl."
* ValleyGirl: To an extent; she's compared herself to Lynda from ''Halloween'' and commenters have pointed out how frequently she uses the word [[LikeIsLikeAComma "like" as a filler word]].
* YouthfulFreckles: 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

* BadassBystander: In ''Sharknado 2'', where he kills a shark with a trident.
* BunnyEarsLawyer[=/=]HiddenDepths: Edits for various films, many by Creator/TheAsylum, and is noted by Brad to be the most professional one in Team Snob, which is why he ended up directing ''Film/TheCinemaSnobMovie''
* InnocentBystander: As Dave nearly assaults Irving in the ''Tyler Perry's Temptation'' review.
* SharpDressedMan: Lampshaded by Brad as Ryan is the only one who has a "real job".
* SpecialGuest: In the ''Midnight Screenings'' ''Sharknado 2'' review, as he made a cameo in the film.

[[folder:Allison Pregler]]
Because Creator/AllisonPregler lives close to Brad, she's become his frequent Midnight Screenings co-reviewer for bad animated films and Podcast/RiffTrax'' presents events (and the occasional comedy).
* CanonImmigrant: From her own shows to Brad's.

[[folder:Laura Luke Jones]]
Brad Jones' wife.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Before becoming a recurring reviewer in ''Midnight Screenings'' starting with ''Film/MazeRunnerTheDeathCure'', 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.
* TheCutie: Great looks, and an affable personality that matches.
* OfficialCouple: Brad's wife.
* SheWhoMustNotBeSeen: At first, she hid herself in the backseat as whoever came with Brad reviewed the movie with him.
* StraightMan: She can provide a more grounded approach to Brad's weirdness, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQmEV8567LI when he showed her]] ''VideoGame/{{Boogerman}}''.
