Characters: The Runaway Guys
The Runaway Guys is a collaboration between Chuggaaconroy, ProtonJon, and NintendoCapriSun. They Let's Play games together, and have had special guests for many of their projects. There are many tropes about them, now the player-specific tropes go here.
    open/close all folders 

Tropes pertaining to multiple main Guys:

     Multiple Runaway Guys 
  • Butt Monkey:
    • Tim. He — as Yoshi — has been attacked by steam in Luigi's Engine Room, chased by a giant boulder in DK'S Jungle Adventure, bitten by a Pirahna Plant in Peach's Birthday Cake, and eaten by a giant fish on Yoshi's Tropical Island.
      • He also got the first Game Over in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. And got killed by the first Goomba. Appropriately, he's playing as Luigi.
      • And the first death in Subspace Emissary.
      • A large portion of the Great Maze can be summed up by "TIIIM!"
    • In Mario Party, the lone CPU gets this in an actual round. One round actually has the guys forming an Anti-CPU alliance.
    • Jon tends to be the most skilled of the three, but sometimes gets screwed by poor luck, like in Wheel of Fortune and Mario Party during DK's Jungle Adventure. Then Yoshi's Tropical Island. Then he won.
      Jon: GAAAAAAME!
      • Mario Party 3 hates Jon. He just can't catch a break, and the game seems to take every chance it can to give him the worst of all possible outcomes.
    • Chuggaaconroy has spells of being this every now and again, especially in Fortune Street and Wheel of Fortune. He also gets on the receiving end of many jabs from Jon and Josh in New Super Mario Bros. U.
    • In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Josh Jepson gets his turn at this; while NCS tends to die as often as him, he at least gathers more lives, meaning Josh usually has the least lives and the most deaths.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Both in terms of characters in New Super Mario Bros. and of names in Brawl, Chugga is Red (the fearless leader), Jon is Blue (he tends to be more proficient and knowledgeable of the games than the other two), and Tim is Green (the most laid-back and gentle of the three). Josh even fulfills the Yellow fourth member part of the trope.
  • Dream Team: They're three popular Let's Players joining together.
  • Evil Laugh:
    • Chugga has done quite a few. One of the best was when he won in a Tug-o-War game.
      • Made funnier by how whenever the character in the Bowser suit wins a Tug-o War game, they do an "evil laugh" animation.
    • NintendoCapriSun also makes a few, often when the other two are yelling.
    • In Episode 14 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Jon used one after royally screwing everyone over. Considering how it sounded, though, maybe it would be more accurate to call it a Troll Laugh.
    • Mario Party's Pot o' Skills has another fantastic one after Jon beats everyone in Tug of War.
  • Genre Savvy: The Guys are well aware of their fanbase's...peculiarities...and in particular when Jon and Chugga argue, they often exploit it by challenging the fans to make embarrassing fanart or fanfiction of the other.
  • Griefer: Chugga plays this role very well.
  • Large Ham:
    • Chugga is the Largest Ham of the entire group, as per his usual LPs where he sends his mic levels skyrocketing into the red zone. He really doesn't like it when things don't go his way.
    • Whenever things don't go Jon's way in Mario Party, he shouts "GAAAAAAAME!" He also has quite a few freak-outs like this during other boards, especially Eternal Star.
    • Josh Jepson appears to be one as well.
  • Magic Knight: Emile and Jon both fit this role in Castle Crashers.
  • Motor Mouth: NintendoCapriSun talks real fast. Chugga does this as well, though mostly due to having a ton of things he wants to say.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted with all three, as they call each other by their real names (Emile, Tim, and Jon) quite often.
  • Power Trio: Seems to border on Knight, Knave and Squire at times.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni, Purple Oni: Chugga and Tim could be seen as this trope, while Jon rapidly switches between red and blue at times. The other two are always red and blue, though.
  • Tempting Fate: All of them have done this - sometimes accidentally, sometimes on purpose to the other Guys. Jon in particular seems to have mastered weaponizing it against Emile, but Emile has done this to Jon on occasion as well.
  • The Team:
  • True Companions: They're willing to travel across the continent just to hang out, and they always have each others' backs, even if they do ham up the Vitriolic Best Buds thing.
  • Verbal Tic: Chugga has a habit of suddenly saying "Luigi!" whenever NCS does something of note in the New Super Mario Bros. Wii videos. Josh also did this a couple of times.
    • In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Chugga does the same thing, but with Dedede rather than Luigi.
    • NCS tends to fill any dead air with tics like "Holy crap", "Oh my God" and "This is crazy", while Josh does the same with "Oh my goodness".
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The relationship between Jon and Chugga has definite shades of this.
    • Especially prevalent in New Super Mario Bros., with them repeatedly trying to kill each other.
    • Guess what was Jon's and Chugga's most common death cause at the end... EACH OTHER. In both NSMB Wii and NSMB U.
      • Summed up well in this conversation:
    Jon: *to Chugga* I hate you.
    Chugga: No you don'-
    Jon: YES I DO!
    • In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Josh also joins in this relationship with both Jon and Chugga. Tim is the only one not hit by this.

Tropes pertaining to the main three Guys:

     Chuggaaconroy 

One of the main three Runaway Guys, Chugga is usually the best or at least better players of whatever game the group is playing. He also tries to annoy ProtonJon as much as possible and allow for situations where the viewers can laugh at the group's collective suffering. In the Mario Parties (up to Mario Party 4), he played Donkey Kong. In Super Smash Bros, he played Ness. In Mario Kart 64, he played Wario. In New Super Mario Bros Wii and New Super Mario Bros U, he played Mario. In Kirby's Return to Dreamland, he played Kirby. In Fortune Street, he played Bowser Jr. (except for the Slimenia board, where he played Donkey Kong). In the Tournament Arc of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he played Lucas. In Mario Power Tennis, he played Bowser Jr. In New Super Luigi U, he played Yellow Toad. In Rayman Origins, he played Rayman. In Castle Crashers, he played Red Knight.

Wins: Mario Party (5 out of 8 boards and the Minigame Stadium), Super Smash Bros. Brawl SSE (tied with Jon for overall winner), Super Smash Bros Brawl Free-for-all (won both matches), Mario Party 2 (2 out of 6 boards), Mario Power Tennis tournament (won with Bowser Jr), Wii Party (Board Game Island), Fortune Street (won Mario Stadium board), Burnout Revenge (had the high score), Mario Party 3 (2 out of 6 Battle Royale boards, 2 Duel boards), Mario Party 4 (1 out of 6 boards)

  • The Ace: Not normally, but in Mario Power Tennis. To the point where Rodri is praised for being the only player to NOT be curb-stomped by him. Indeed, the guest players seem to see him as the Opposing Sports Team.
  • A Day In The Lime Light: Not Chugga himself, but the fact that he plays as Donkey Kong in the Mario Party games contrasts with his individual channel where he's never played a Donkey Kong game or even a game that has Donkey Kong as a playable character.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Jon views him as this, thanks to A) his repeated usage of the word "suck", B) his Double Entendre style phrases, and C) the occasional Ho Yay moment. Mostly with Jon.
    • His hinted-at offscreen moments of...something note  make Jon question this more. Strangely, he never shows any signs of this in his own LPs, so he could just be deliberately acting weird to make these videos funnier.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He has a habit of being distracted, such as pointing out how nice the background looks, while in the middle of gameplay.
    • This habit of his leads to some very strange trains of thought on his part, like concluding that making pizza by going to the bathroom is an awesome power and that the final boss of Kirby's Return to Dream Land is the king of Hawaii.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: When Jon and Tim are asked on their formsprings what they genuinely like about Emile, they both say this is one of his best traits here and here. Since he's the one who provides detailed information on every game and edits all the videos, this is to be expected.
  • Bad Impressionists: An oddly specific example; whenever Chugga does any impression, Jon always thinks it sounds more like Scooby-Doo than whoever Chugga was trying to do. One can only imagine what would happen if Chugga tried to do an impression of Scooby-Doo...
  • Berserk Button: Steve, as usual.
    • He also gets annoyed whenever Jon does that little cat noise.
    • And when people take his friendship with Jon the wrong way.
  • Better than a Bare Bulb: If there is any form of coincidence, irony, or status quo change in either the game or with the three of them, Chugga will point it out sooner or later.
  • Born Lucky: As per his normal LPs, Chugga has huge strokes of luck in Mario Party, including winning the majority of the boards, having his stars switched with the leader at the last second thanks to Chance Time, and running into multiple Star Spaces in one turn. Subverted concerning the dice rolls that determine turn order, as he keeps getting to move last.
    • Also, in the sequel, getting a last second hidden star on the final turn in Pirate Land, ultimately leading to his victory.
    • Jon points this out in Horror Land of Mario Party 2 and refers to it as Chugga's "stupid luck".
      • Chugga himself lampshades this in Fortune Street by yelling "SUPER LUCK ACTIVATE!" when gaining a free teleport to the bank. inverted due to him being consistently dead last for the entire game.
    • He claims that when he was a kid, he never knew that Game Guy in Mario Party 3 took away all of your coins if you lost until he played with friends, because he never lost.
    • And in Mario Party 4, he wins Bowser's Gnarly Party thanks to getting three Happening spaces in a row to get the Happening Star, and Reversal of Fortune actually working in his favor.
    • This is actually kind of funny when you consider how Chugga's solo videos normally go.
  • Buffy Speak: Has begun doing this as of late.
  • Butt Monkey: Normally not nearly as much as the others, but in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, he becomes the subject of plenty of verbal abuse from Jon.
    Chugga: Hey!
    • Even Tim gets in on this:
    Chugga: I'm the American...person.
    Jon: Dream? You're the American dream?
    • He becomes one in Wheel of Fortune when his unfamiliarity with the show and lack of expertise at word puzzles lead to "Calibrary Cuff Paula Deen." Chugga is genuinely embarrassed about it, and Jon's mocking doesn't help.
  • Call Back: Chugga has referenced the Runaway Guys videos in his then-current solo LPs — Pikmin 2 and Luigi's Mansion. He specifically references "Don't Eat The Mushroom" whenever a poison mushroom shows up in the mansion.
    • This has continued into later LPs as well.
  • Catch Phrase:
    • "Might as welllll JUMP!"
    • It's almost always him saying "DOH I MISSED".
    • "That is not the point" is his usual rebuttal when Jon wins an argument with him.
    • "WHERE YOU AT?" whenever something goes his way.
    • Likes to say "Maybe-possibly-almost-not-quite" instead of just a simple "maybe" (or anything similar).
    • In the Mario Party LPs, whenever he's the 1 in a 3-on-1 minigame he declares "Everyone against the monkey!"
    • "Plot Twist!"
    • "We weren't recording!?!"
    • "[Winner] takes it!" whenever a minigame or tournament match is won.
    • "Got it!" whenever he gets something.
  • Character Development: He's a real person and not a character, but this is the closest trope. He starts out in Mario Party rather normal, only having occasional Large Ham or Cloud Cuckoo Lander moments, with pretty much the only real humour from him coming from his rivalry with Jon. By New Super Mario Bros. Wii, however, he's become much more entertaining.
    • Another example, from New Super Mario Bros. Wii onwards, he indeed starts playing up his rivalry with Jon, trolling him for viewer enjoyment, making bad puns and references, etc. By the time Josh returns for New Super Mario Bros. U, Josh seems the most openly annoyed by this, and by the end of the LP, and ever since, Chugga has toned it down and become more cooperative. Lampshaded in the credits for New Super Luigi U when Chugga himself admits that he was becoming more "grating" to listen to during video editing.
  • Character Exaggeration/Flanderization: After the incident in the first LP about him never having seen an Indiana Jones or Back to the Future film, Jon now reacts with exaggerated shock every time Chugga mentions he's seen any film.
    • Similarly, in Mario Party 2, Jon likes to exaggerate Chugga's love of the Wario "DOH, I MISSED" catchphrase (together with Chugga's encyclopaedic knowledge of games) by claiming Chugga has an annotated list of every single situation in the game where the catchphrase appears.
    • Chugga himself seems to deliberately play up his own Large Ham, Leeroy Jenkins and Book Dumb / Popcultural Osmosis Failure tendencies to contrast with Jon more. There is quite a noticeable contrast with his solo LPs.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Jon informs us that Chugga has one of these.
    • Referenced again in Subspace Emissary 5.
  • Children Are Innocent: He cites himself as this. Josh laughs.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Exhibits traits of this. Mentioned in Fortune Street Mario Stadium:
    Jon: Have we come to the realization that Emile just lives in his own world when it comes to commentary?
    Josh: Yeah...
  • Crazy-Prepared: He states himself as such here because he practices for his LPs months in advance while talking to someone else. This is so he can adjust to the multiple factors that come with other people being around while focusing on playing the game. He also keeps everything super organized according to Jon and Tim and is usually the person with the most knowledge of their current project.
    • This is most noticeable in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, where Chugga plays pretty well despite stating elsewhere that he isn't good at 2D Mario games. In a later LP he mentions that he's incapable of beating New Super Mario Bros. Wii when playing alone, which you wouldn't expect from his performance in the LP.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Not stupid, per se, but tends to not play too well in Subspace Emissary. However, when they reach normal matches rather than platforming, he proves to be quite competent.
    • He shows this even more in the bonus battle and tournament, doing amazingly well in both. He wins both of their matches in the bonus battle, and reaches fourth place in the tournament. And he likely could have gotten even higher, if he hadn't lost his first match due to a rolling crate spawning and ramming him offscreen.
  • Curbstomp Battle: He's on the delivering side in Mario Power Tennis, constantly. He was one of the only ones to practice, though.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Almost as much as Jon.
  • Determinator: According to Jon's Formspring, Chugga really wanted to be Player 1 in Kirby's Return to Dream Land since the three of them hadn't changed player numbers since the beginning, despite not being terribly good at the game. So he allegedly powered his way through the game in order to prove to Jon that he was capable of being Player 1. And he was, once the project began.
  • Doing It for the Art: In-Universe, he volunteered to partake in control stick spinning, despite the fact that none of the guys had to, just so the viewers would enjoy it.
  • Double Standard / Fantastic Racism: Played to very humorous effect and lampshaded every single time.
  • Grammar Nazi: Is the first to correct Jon whenever he says something like "Tim and me", reminding him to say "Tim and I" instead.
    Jon: Thank you, Grammar Nazi.
  • Griefer: Usually the one that screws the other guys out of victories.
  • The Hero: The unofficial leader, due to his gaming skill. Furthered by him being Player 1 in many of their LPs.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • In episode 3 of Kirby's Return to Dream Land, it's mentioned that he can beatbox.
    • In Wheel of Fortune, he reveals that, despite doing poorly in school overall, he was top of his class (or close to it) in History/Geography.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Tortures Jon with the "Move faster Pokey" line for fun, but reacts in pure agony whenever Jon mentions Steve.
  • Iconic Outfit: His polo shirts, which Jon tries to exaggerate into a Cargo Ship. Even the game Wii Party joins in by randomly assigning a striped colour scheme to Chugga's Mii in one minigame, making it look like he's wearing a polo shirt.
  • Keet
  • Large Ham: More so than on his main channel. Jon pointed out on one of his streams that Emile is more boisterous when there's two or more people around him.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Many of the other Guys' and Guests' deaths are due to Chugga running ahead and scrolling them offscreen.
  • Manchild: Played for laughs, and done intentionally, but his childish humor easily fits this trope.
    • Somewhat appropriate since he is the youngest of the three members.
  • Mr. Exposition: He is often the one to know the most about the game they're LPing, and will supply information about its details and background as they play.
  • Narrating the Obvious: Of the three, his commentary tends toward this the most.
  • No Indoor Voice: Utterly screams whenever something really good or bad happens.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: He occasionally becomes angry or irritable, despite usually being the cheerful one. Most prominent examples are Bowser Land of Mario Party 2, the Precision F-Strike example below, and the Super Smash Bros. Brawl recording failure story listed on their Epic Fail page.
  • Phrase Catcher / Fan Nickname: Jon and some of the tournament guests have taken to calling him "Mr. Conroy" in a crotchety old man voice.
  • Poke the Poodle: His revenge on Jon for trying to kill him is to not replace the batteries in Jon's controller until after the game is over.
  • Popcultural Osmosis Failure: All the time, to the point where it becomes a Running Gag.
  • Precision F-Strike:
    • After they get a Star Coin which took them quite a while to get, only to have the only one alive, Jon, die at the end...
    Chugga: I speak for everyone when I say this: Fuck you, ProtonJon.
  • Pungeon Master: He loves to crack hilariously bad puns at the other guys' expenses.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: At one point, though we can only take the word of the other players.
  • Read the Freaking Manual: Tries to get away with not doing this, under the pretense that nobody else does it either. He pays for it each time.
  • Red Oni: The loud and easily excitable one.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Before the Precision F-Strike example, but after Jon died, Chugga goes into this territory.
    • Episode 10 of Subspace Emmissary, when having to confront a red Pikmin.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: In one of his Plants vs. Zombies Let's Play videos, Tim says that while he isn't gay, he thinks Chugga is gorgeous.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: In an inversion of what normally occurs, Chugga claims this during Episode 10 of the Super Smash Bros. Brawl LP.
    ProtonJon: Oh, so you're the one saying [you're] surrounded by idiots now!
  • That's What She Said: His version is to say "...in bed" in a suggestive tone.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In New Super Luigi U.
  • Troll: It's difficult not to imagine Chugga making a trollface when he makes an Incredibly Lame Pun or screws Jon over. His teachers always said (and he agrees) that he does not work well with others, which explains why he acts differently than in his solo videos.
  • Unfit for Greatness: As far as the Kirby's Return to Dream Land LP goes. He fancies himself the leader at all times, but he doesn't know Kirby nearly as well as other games or as much as Jon knows Kirby. Still wants to be the leader. See Determinator above.
  • Viewers Are Geniuses: Given his tastes are lean towards the obscure, and his tendency to gush over things he likes, expect a lot of references that may not seem familiar at all.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: He seems to want to impress ProtonJon (his inspiration to be an LPer) in the Super Smash Bros. Brawl playthrough.
  • Young and in Charge: He is the youngest of the three core members, and he is also the one in charge of maintaining the YouTube channel, editing the footage, and uploading the videos.

     Proton Jon 

One of the three main Runaway Guys, Jon is also a great player, but is usually messed up by the game or Chugga. Tends to act like he's Surrounded by Idiots. In Mario Party 1, Mario Kart 64, Mario Party 2, and Super Smash Bros. 64, he played Mario. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii New Super Mario Bros. U, and New Super Luigi U, he played Blue Toad. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, he primarily played as Meta Knight (switching to Waddle Dee and Kirby in situational cases). In Fortune Street, Mario Party 3 and Mario Party 4, he played Waluigi. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he played Ike. In Mario Power Tennis, he played Luigi. In Rayman Origins, he played Globox. In Castle Crashers, he played Blue Knight.

Wins: Mario Party (2 out of 8 boards, won the most games on Minigame Island), New Super Mario Bros. Wii (overall winner), Super Smash Bros 64 (won both the round-robin and free-for-all), Mario Kart 64 (won the Balloon Battle), Super Smash Bros Brawl SSE (tied with Chuggaaconroy for overall winner), Super Smash Bros Brawl Tournament (won with Ike), Mario Party 2 (won 4 out of 6 boards), Kirby's Return to Dreamland (overall winner), LittleBigPlanet (overall winner), Wii Party (won Globe Trot, Spin Off and Bingo), New Super Mario Bros. 2 (collected the most coins), Fortune Street (won The Observatory and Slimenia boards), New Super Mario Bros. U (overall winner), Castle Crashers (overall winner), Mario Party 3 (1 out of 6 Battle Royale boards, 3 Duel boards; overall Duel winner), Mario Party 4 (5 out of 6 boards, overall winner)

  • The Ace: Although bad luck or his teammates tend to screw him over. Cemented when he won the Brawl Tournament Arc
  • Berserk Button: His old catchphrases, such as "MOVE FASTER POKEY!"
    • Insulting his mother is shown to be one in the first episode of Horror Land.
    • He also hates when people take his relationship with Emile the wrong way, since the two are actually best friends in real life.
  • Born Unlucky: In complete contrast to Chuggaa, Jon has horrible luck, especially in Mario Party 3; and if a roll of the dice has the potential to screw him over, it's probably going to.
  • Canada, Eh?: The other two comment on his dialect.
    Chugga: Well, you say "zed"!
    Jon: *gasp* OH NO, I'M CANADIAN.
    Chugga: HIDE YOUR CHILDREN!
    • The latter part of the Subspace LP took place at his home in Canada. Chugga frequently states that he's in "enemy territory", and at one point Jon realizes he can kick Chugga out of his house.
    • He even claims he is allowed to deport Chugga from Canada, or at least put him under citizen's arrest.
    • In Western Land in Mario Party 2, they lampshade the rather Canadian way Jon says "No."
  • Catch Phrase:
    • "GAAAAAAAAME!"
    • During Mario Party, he says "PENTAGON PUNCH!" a few times, referring to Mario's rather pentagon-shaped glove.
    • During New Super Mario Bros. Wii, his main catchphrase was "Bye guys!" when he ran further from the rest of the pack.
    • He says "Thanks, X!" after someone references X person or media, and sometimes says "...Really?" when Chugga makes a reference or joke he considers to be a bit of a stretch.
    • "Only you." whenever Emile does or says something weird.
    • Tended to use "Happy Birthday!" to Chugga whenever screwing him out of a collectable in the Kirby's Return to Dream Land run. Well, during the period immediately surrounding Chugga's real life birthday.
    • Another one used for The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard scenarios is "I call shenanigans!"
    • Whenever Chugga calls him out on his trolling, Jon usually replies with "what?" of "I don't know what you're talking about".
    • He also has taken up the habit to respond to Chugga's "WHERE YOU AT?!" with "Over here, can't you see?"
    • Whenever he has bad luck or Chugga has good luck (i.e. saying that they need a certain dice roll number to land on a particular space, and then getting it), he says "'Course!"
    • "You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!" throughout Mario Party 3.
    • "Slippery shoes!", "I hit bubble!", and "WHAT?!" (all angrily) throughout New Super Luigi U.
    • "Waluigi number X" whenever something good happens to him while playing as Waluigi, where X is a word (not necessarily a number) related to his feelings on the matter. Lampshaded in Shy Guy's Jungle Jam Part 5 when Jon says that "Everything's a number but an actual number to Waluigi."
  • Cluster F-Bomb / Precision F-Strike: More often than the other two main guys.
  • Character Development: He's not nearly as much of a Token Evil Teammate, Large Ham, or Deadpan Snarker in Mario Party as he is in future playthroughs.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As per his usual LPs:
    Emile: I FEEL LIKE A MAN!
    Jon: It's about time.
    Emile: ...Shut up.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The reason he's trying to kill Chugga's player avatar in New Super Mario Bros. Wii is for Chugga throwing a pillow at him. Though he did get a black eye from it, because it wasn't a normal, "fluffy," type of pillow. It was one of those hard cushions used for back support.
  • Flanderization: In Mario Party, he tends to be a jerk sometimes, but only when it's justified or Played for Laughs. In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he becomes an outright Token Evil Teammate whose sole purpose is to kill Chugga.
  • For the Evulz: After getting over Chugga nearly giving him a black eye in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he's still determined to make Chugga use a continue. When asked why, he simply says "Because I can!"
  • Freudian Excuse/Parental Neglect: Played for Laughs in Mario Party 3's Spiny Desert.
    Chugga: And I'm special. My mommy says so.
    NCS: Yeah, so did mine. What a coincidence.
    Jon: I don't think mine ever did. *beat* That explains a lot about me, actually.
  • Grumpy Bear: Of the three, he is the most cynical and the most prone to genuine anger. note 
  • Handicapped Badass:
    • During the Smash Bros. filler video, he beat Chugga and Tim, while using a controller he wasn't used to.
    • During the Tournament, it was revealed that he didn't get a lot of sleep and was tired beforehand. And he won anyway.
  • Hipster: Repeatedly calls himself as such. Especially in LittleBigPlanet, where he enjoys sticking hipster glasses on everything.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: During Kirby's Return to Dream Land. He has to point things out to Chugga, who insists on still leading the team.
  • The Lancer/The Smart Guy
  • Large Ham: Oh so much, particularly in the later playthroughs and especially in Fortune Street.
  • Little "No": He often gives one with a sigh when he fails at something in-game, especially if he was pessimistic about his prospects to start with.
  • Only Sane Man: Likes to think he is, at least.
  • Purple Oni: The calm and collected one during Mario Party (most of the time). Switched to red from blue when New Super Mario Bros. Wii started up. Ironic, considering he plays Blue Toad. Yes, Jon not only shares this trope with another Runaway Guy, but has actually been on both ends of the trope's spectrum.
  • Ron the Death Eater: In-universe during Kirby, he's hit hard with this by Chugga, who thinks that everything Jon does or says is taking a shot at him. Even lampshaded in Episode 12.
  • Running Gag: An occasional one is him reacting with exaggerated emotional shock when a character 'dies' in-game, especially if it's in a very cartoonish way that you would never take seriously. He does this for Wario in Mario Party 1, Ike in Brawl and Tim in Wii Party (where the Guys react to Tim falling into a volcano as though he's died and gone to Hell).
  • Say My Name:
    • In Mario Party, he does this to the game itself, as seen in Catch Phrase above.
    • In Subspace Emissary, he repeatedly yells "TIM!" due to Tim's frequent screw-ups.
    • In Fortune Street's The Observatory, he ecstatically yells his own (character's) name when Tim lands on his shop and has to pay him 841 G, complete with the trademark Mexican-ish accent: "WALUIGIIIIIII!"
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: His frequent "Bye guys!" moments in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
    • Also occasionally jokingly does this later on, such as near the end of the first episode of Kirby's Return to Dream Land:
    Chugga: (trying to wrap up the episode) This has been...
    Jon: Me flying away. (as he does just that)
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Downplayed. He sometimes uses more complicated or specific terms and doesn't use Buffy Speak as much as the others.
  • Sleepyhead: At least according to Chugga, who repeatedly claims never to have seen Jon fully awake.
  • Take That, Audience!: Chugga has his fun sometimes, but Jon makes fun of the Fan Dumb among the Guys' fanbase more than anyone else.
  • Third-Person Person: When playing as Captain Falcon in Brawl.
    • Also to a lesser extent when playing as Waluigi in Fortune Street and Mario Party 3.
  • Token Evil Teammate: During New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Especially towards Chugga after the pillow incident.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Goes from somewhat annoyed with Chugga in Mario Party to outright trying to kill him (and occasionally Josh) in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Even more after Chugga accidentally gives him a black eye.
    • He goes back to "normal" in Subspace Emissary, though he still tries to annoy Chugga whenever possible.
  • Troll:
    • In episode 14 of Mario Bros., he actually starts being more annoying again because he hasn't "been trolling enough" apparently.
      • He tries very hard in the last videos to get Chugga killed enough times to have to use a continue. He even asked Josh and Tim to help. (It failed.)
      • He had the most teammate kills, and was Chugga's leading cause of death.
    • Not to mention his tendency to bring up the Steve meme at every available opportunity.
    • In the finale of New Super Mario Bros. U, he kills everyone else at the same time during the first part of the Bowser fight. The cutscene prevented everyone from bubbling after he pushed the switch to collapse the floor.

     Nintendo Capri Sun 

Another of the main three players, NintendoCapriSun (also just "NCS" or "Tim") is the quietest and nicest of the three. This usually means Chugga and Jon will beat him, though he's not by any means bad at games. In the Mario Parties, Mario Kart 64 and Fortune Street, he played Yoshi. In New Super Mario Bros Wii New Super Mario Bros U, and New Super Luigi U, he played Luigi. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, he played King Dedede. In Super Smash Bros, he initially played Yoshi in his match against Chugga, then switched to Fox for the remainder of the video. In the Tournament Arc of Super Smash Bros Brawl, he played Diddy Kong. In Mario Power Tennis, he played Yoshi. In Rayman Origins, he played a Teensie. In Castle Crashers, he played Green Knight.

Wins: Mario Party (1 out of 8 boards), Mario Kart 64 (Rainbow Road), Fortune Street (Yoshi's Island), Wii Party (Swap Meet), Mario Party 3 (3 out of 6 Battle Royale boards, 1 Duel board; overall Battle Royale winner), Mario Party 4 (won Mega Board Mayhem)

  • Apologetic Attacker: If he hits a teammate by accident.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: It's been theorized by the other Guys that the reason he keeps dying in the games is because he's not paying much attention as he plays.
    • This was definitely present in the final stages of Subspace Emissary, where Tim died or caused the others to die constantly. Reached its logical conclusion in this superb Non Sequitur right at the end.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite being likely the nicest of the trio, he has his moments of awesome. He also shows this in real life, such as when he got tired of a troll starting an argument in the comments of an episode of LittleBigPlanet and stepped in to shut them up.
  • The Big Guy
  • Blue Oni: Even calmer and more careful than Jon was in Mario Party. Plus, it sticks during the transition to New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
  • Butt Monkey: Tim will usually finish last most the time, especially in Mario Party and Subspace Emissary. And he'll often have the worst luck of the three.
  • Catch Phrase:
    • Aside from the ones from his regular playthroughs, he has taken to usually using a simple "Dahh!" when he screws up, rather than yelling, cussing, or narrating what just happened like Chugga and Jon.
    • Whenever a beach level appears, he often makes the same "Son of a beach!" pun.
    • If he makes a reference that someone else points out, he has a tendency to say "I'm afraid so."
    • He often responds to Chugga's puns with a distinctive "Augh!"
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Somewhat. He tends to talk to himself in the background, usually while others are talking over him, so viewers will often only catch snippets of what he's saying and wonder what the hell's running through his mind. This can often lead to an Orphaned Punchline.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Tends to play better when everyone else has died and he's the only player left on screen.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Usually averted, a lot of his problems stem from lack of experience with the games the Guys are playing. New Super Mario Bros. U is an exception though—he has played it enough to have practically memorised it (as Jon points out) and it shows.
    • After faring poorly on the first two Mario Party games thanks to lack of experience, he practiced Mario Party 3 for a year before the LP (according to Chugga). The result? He won the LP.
  • Cross Player: In LittleBigPlanet, he is a Sack Girl he calls "Victorian Lady Gaga." In Wheel of Fortune, he uses a female avatar. In Rayman Origins, he starts out as a regular Teensie but eventually switches over to the Princess Teensette costume.
  • Dark Horse Victory: Teased for Yoshi's Tropical Island, but Jon won instead. Tim did, however, win earlier at Wario's Battle Canyon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Occasionally, but definitely not as much as the others.
  • Funny Background Event: If a viewer listens closely, Tim can be heard saying some weird stuff.
  • Gasshole: NCS belches several times in just about every video.
    • Lampshaded once when they pointed out that someone other than him belched.
    • On Yoshi's Tropical Island, once the rest of the group got a whiff of something, he admits he'd passed gas three times by that point.
  • Hidden Depths: He shows that he is very skilled at button mashing in Mario Party 2. He even avoids being caught by Chugga in Crane Game, when Chugga had 40 seconds to go. This shows up again in Mario Party 4 where, after Chugga talks about how he has improved his button mashing skills through training and hopes the minigame "Domination" comes up so he can demonstrate this, it does so - and he's still beaten by Tim.
    • He's also turned out to be incredibly skilled at Wheel of Fortune, frequently figuring out puzzles with only a handful of letters revealed. Jon and Chuggaa have both suggested that he try auditioning for the show.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: Eventually, he keeps making his 'in the bathroom' joke, but replacing the last word with anything relevant.
    • He also does this with his "A bee?!" catchphrase, switching it out with anything relevant that rhymes, such as "A key?!"
  • Magikarp Power: After struggling through much of the New Super Mario Bros. Wii run, he ends up practically carrying the team come the final stage.
    • As the guys make more projects, his overall skill seems to be slowly improving. He was rather clumsy and incompetent during Mario Party 1, less so in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, was able to hold his own in Mario Party 2, had the fewest deaths for a decent chunk of Kirby's Return to Dream Land, ended LittleBigPlanet with the second-fewest deaths... time will tell if he will be able to challenge Jon as The Ace.
  • The Medic: During New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he usually pops the other players' bubbles.
  • Nice Guy: Tim is very gentle compared to the others, only stealing from the CPU during Mario Party. He also never dicks over anyone else during NSMB Wii, either by intentionally using them as springboards or grabbing them and throwing them down pits.
    • This also adds a bit of Fridge Brilliance as to his low score on Mario Party; nice guys finish last.
    • He's begun abiding by this a bit less in later playthroughs; while he doesn't act like a total jerk and avoids screwing with the others when they need to use teamwork, he has stopped going easy.
    • He starts to subvert this a bit in New Super Luigi U.
  • Only Sane Man: Almost the entire time in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Also during other games, though to a somewhat lesser extent.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Any time NCS sends his voice skyrocketing for one reason or another (to the extent he outdid even Chugga) usually ends up catching everyone involved off guard.
  • Phrase Catcher / Say My Name: Chugga has a tendency to shout "(Go) Tim!" (or "Luigi!" in the New Super Mario Bros. Wii LP) whenever NCS does something noteworthy, either good or bad.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: NCS is normally a very good gamer, having done quite a few Self Imposed Challenges and the like note . However, since the Mario Party LP started, he's been the Butt Monkey of the group, having both lost more coins than he's earned and placing in dead last in at least half of the boards.
    • He seems to be getting this in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. So far, he's died on the first Goomba, lost more lives than anyone else, and was the first player to have to use a continue. This can mostly be attributed to his nice guy nature in refusing to use everyone else as springboards, and falling to his death (except once). And as Josh Jepson pointed out in a comment, he actually feels he's doing worse than Tim because Tim never uses the bubble mechanic. On the bright side, he's collected a good majority of the Star Coins so far, but the LP is too early on to say for sure if this will be a constant.
      • He does seem to be doing better than Josh now, but he's still miles behind Chugga and Jon in the long run.
    • This was lampshaded in a Facebook post:
      [Chuggaaconroy]: Tim can do 3-heart runs of Zelda, beat Contra on Hard with no continues, and even beat Super Ghouls & Ghosts, yet despite all this, he does not understand the concept of pressing A to not die.
    • Chugga finally came out and just asked him about it, and Tim responded that it's the control sticks in general that mess him up so bad. The evidence matches up, as all the games he's pulled off incredibly well were before the advent of analogue sticks. Also, the fact that there are more players on the screen was mentioned.
    • He's doing better now in Mario Party 2, but unfortunately the Random Number God is still causing his overall performance to suffer.
    • Mario Party 3 became his turning point, where he won three out of the six main boards.
  • Pungeon Master: Not to the same extent as Chugga, but he does make quite a few puns. And they're generally given a warmer reception.
  • The Quiet One: A common complaint in the earlier Mario Party videos is that the normally very talkative NCS was being far too quiet; all three contributors promised that he would come out of his shell in later videos. And so he did, but he's still definitely the quietest of the three.
    • He does do a lot of talking, though, but mainly to himself in the background.
    • Inverted twice in the filler videos. In the Super Smash Bros.. round-robin tournament, his "Let's get ready to RUMBLLLLLLLLE!" was so loud and long that it left Jon and Chugga dumbfounded, then when he won in the lost recording of Mario Kart 64, his Big "YES!" reached Chugga levels of loud.
      • Jon also mentions in his interview with LPCatchPhrases that NCS is a generally quiet and shy person, so part of it is probably him warming up to his new team members.
    • It is mentioned in "Wheel of Fortune - Happy Holidays" that NCS' microphone is usually cranked up more than the others' in order to make up for his soft-spokenness.
      • In that same video, NCS' quiet voice actually works to his advantage: at one point he unknowingly gives away a big hint to a puzzle, but Jon and Chugga don't hear it (while the viewers can thanks to his mic) and thus screw up their attempts at solving it.
  • Smug Snake: Not normally, but his loss in Fortune Street's Delfino Plaza was in part due to him being arrogant while bidding on one of Chuggaa's shops, causing him to spend too much and blow his lead.
  • Some Call Me Tim: Literally.
  • Stone Wall: Puts a lot of emphasis on mostly Defense to his character in Castle Crashers.
  • Token Good Teammate: Tim is usually the only guy who won't resort to messing with his teammates, and helps them out when they need it, especially in New Super Mario Bros. U where he kinda functions as the Only Sane Man.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • While still the only one to never win a match, he did KO Jon once or twice during the Smash Bros. filler video, and then won Rainbow Road during the Mario Kart video.
    • He's also gotten loads better as of Mario Party 2. However, due to Jon and Chugga also being a bit better and luck usually not going in his favour, this tends to not show as well as it should.
    • The Mini-Game coaster showed that he got exceptional in playing the mini-games, particularly Hot Rope Jump. The challenge is that you have to jump fifty times and he did it on his first try!
    • And in Fortune Street, he was consistently staying in first place with a huge lead, and then, he won even when Jon seriously threatened his victory. Emile did cheer Tim on and strategically put what little money he had into Tim's stocks at the end, but it was mainly Tim's own win over the usual ace of the team.
    • He plays very well in New Super Mario Bros. U. As of episode 14, he has the second least deaths and is actively gunning for the star coin lead.
    • By Mario Party 3, he won Deep Bloober Sea due to a Hidden Block and good use of his items. He then won Spiny Desert, and as if that weren't enough, he THEN won Woody Woods by a mere 21 coins! That makes him the victor of more boards than the previous 2 Mario Parties COMBINED.
    • He's Luigi, aka Player 1 in New Super Luigi U. While Chuggaa and Jon come off as more Hyper competent sidekicks, it's still pretty impressive.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Chugga describes him as "a Southerner from Wisconsin".

Tropes pertaining to guest Guys:

     Josh Jepson 

The special guest Runaway Guy during the New Super Mario Bros. Wii and New Super Mario Bros. U LPs, where he played Yellow Toad. He also played as Link in Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament, Koopa Troopa in Mario Power Tennis, Luigi in Super Smash Bros. 64, and Donkey Kong in Fortune Street.

     Lucahjin 

The Guys' first official female guest, and second guest in a main project overall (LittleBigPlanet). She also played as Ganondorf in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Peach in Mario Power Tennis, Jigglypuff in Super Smash Bros. 64, Daisy in Fortune Street, and Koopa in Mario Kart: Double Dash (on Team PressBallsToContinue with Dodger).

  • Always Someone Better: In Fortune Street Tim claims that she goes even further with Toilet Humour than him, although Lucah herself says he's just as bad.
  • Beginner's Luck:
    • Says she's trying to invoke this in Fortune Street, which she's never played before. She manages to finish in second place.
    • Inverted in Burnout Revenge, where she has an Epic Fail on the first stage but does respectably well on the next two.
  • Butt Monkey: Loses almost every time during the first round in the tournaments.
  • The Cameo:
    • Bizarrely manages to make one in Wii Party, albeit with a male avatar, when the computer is asked to pick a random name for the Guys' fourth AI player and picks "Luca".
    • In the Minigame Island videos, the Guys mention seeing a drug dealer outside their window who looks suspiciously like her.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: She claims to be wearing Josh Jepson's socks, making her better at Mario Power Tennis.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of two in the Brawl tournament.
  • Large Ham: Seems to be a requirement.
  • Lovely Assistant: Plays this role for the Guys in the second Thrown Controllers segment (Jon even calls her 'the lovely Lucahjin' in Game Show Host fashion).
  • Lady Swears A Lot: During her first match of Brawl.
  • Noob: The Observatory playthrough is her first time ever playing Fortune Street, and Jon acts as Mr. Exposition to explain it to her. (They note that this is actually a good thing, since in the previous playthrough, the Guys launched straight into the game without much explanation of the rules, and many fans unfamiliar with the game got confused by its mechanics).
  • One of the Boys: Amusingly in contrast to previous guest Josh being treated as The Chick.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Most of the time, though Jon does call her by her real name (Reese) a few times in LittleBigPlanet.
  • Ship Tease: With NintendoCapriSun.
  • Tempting Fate: She predicted that her first death in Brawl would be within seconds of the start of the match.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!
  • Toilet Humour: She's known for making raunchy jokes, some of which involve bathroom humor.
  • Trauma Conga Line:
    • In the Brawl tournament, she loses two battles in a row, both of which are curb-stomps, and to Lucas, a character she apparently hates.
    • And again in the Smash 64 tournament, where she uses Jigglypuff and gets absolutely destroyed in her first match, then loses to Donnabellez in the loser's bracket after stalling for a good few minutes (although they were both apparently a tad drunk at the time).

     SuperJeenius 

Became the Guys' third main guest when he joined their LP of Castle Crashers. He also played as Zelda/Sheik in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario in Super Smash Bros. 64, and Stella in two Fortune Street boards.

  • Awesome McCoolname: His in-game nickname in Brawl, ωΣΜΗΘ, at least to Jon.
  • Big "NO!": A humorous Double Subversion during Fortune Street's Delfino Plaza:
    *Chugga's Venture Card forces all other players to only move one space on their next turn*
    SJ: OH NOOOOO—Actually, that's... NOOOOOOOO!
  • Butt Monkey: Seems to be something of a tradition for the Guys' guests...
  • Crippling Overspecialisation: Comes back to bite him in Castle Crashers after he puts all his levelling points into strength, and ends up dying a lot in episode 5 due to low defence.
  • Cross Player: Played as Zelda/Shiek during the Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament and as Stella in Fortune Street.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jon even points out that he has less of a need to say anything to Chuggaa with Super Jeenius around.
  • Fountain of Memes: In-Universe, half his conversations are references to memes.
  • Glass Cannon: Puts all of his skill points in strength in Castle Crashers... it doesn't really work out.
  • Hero Killer: The only guest competitor to knock out one of the Guys in the first round (during the Brawl tournament).
  • Irony: He was the one to suggest they do Castle Crashers, but turned out to be probably the least good at the game, as pointed out in episode 5.
  • Large Ham: At times, especially in his second battle.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: He starts out his Brawl matches as Zelda and plays rather poorly. However, when he switches to Sheik, he starts kicking ass.
    • Happens again in the Smash 64 tournament, where JoshJepson is winning by two lives but Jake pulls it out in the end.
  • Noodle Incident: Parodied, regarding a bondage incident.
  • Only Sane Man: In full effect during the Delfino Plaza board in Fortune Street.
  • Precision F-Strike
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Does a couple to Chugga, rather calmly.
    Goodbye. Nice knowing you.
  • Tempting Fate: Gets hit with Mario's Final Smash after someone pointing out how no one went for the Smash Ball.
  • Troll: Kind of a mixture between Chugga's style of trolling and Jon's.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Though not a villain, he came off as rather upset by losing.
  • Worthy Opponent: Jon sees him as this during the Brawl tournament, even though they never fight each other.

Tropes pertaining to Multi-Player Guests:

Donnabellez (played Yoshi in SSBB, Kirby in SSB)

ALoyalGamer (played Marth in SSBB, played Mario in Mario Power Tennis)

  • Captain Oblivious: Seemed to know the least about Brawl.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Loses his tennis match against PurpleRodri quickly enough that they still had time to include it in the same video as Josh and Lucah's incredibly long match.
  • The Quiet One: The least vocal guest during the SSBB tournament.
  • The Stoic: Not entirely, but definitely the closest example so far.
  • Tempting Fate: How he ultimately loses.
  • Worthy Opponent: To Jon.

Diabetus (played Mario in SSBB and again in Mario Kart DD on Team Retsupurae with slowbeef)

  • The Ace: Somewhat; he made it to the semi-finals through the loser's bracket and was responsible for the elimination of two main Guys, so he definitely has enough skill to be classified as this.
  • Berserk Button: He freaks out when he finds out the guys had a Battletoads event during Thrown Controllers and wasn't told.
  • Crystal Dragon Jesus: Chugga regards him as "The Jesus of Let's Playing" (as Slowbeef is the God of Let's Playing).
  • Deadpan Snarker: Given what he's made himself known for, it's not a surprise.
  • Foreshadowing / Lying Creator: The Guys mentioned at one point that they'd meet up with him, and later it was confirmed he would not be their guest player. And here he is now. Not lying per se, but it was tricky.
  • Funny Background Event: He keeps getting invested in one of these (the polar bear on the Ice Climbers' stage).
  • Handicapped Badass: Does well in the tournament, despite being sleepy.
  • Hero Killer: Defeats Chuggaaconroy for good in sudden death, even after Chugga was buying himself time to kill him there first, and previously Diabetus had knocked Tim out of the Tournament. He's responsible for two out of three Runaway Guys losing the tournament.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Loses a life (and his first match) by trying to grab a Bob-Omb.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Cracked a few during his second match.
  • The Lancer: To slowbeef. As shown during the MKDD tournament.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Realizes that the cost of winning another match means he'd have to stay awake late at night for even longer.
  • The Quiet One: Not as much as ALoyalGamer, but more than other guest fighters, he likes to be quiet and focus on playing. He eventually makes some jokes and puns starting with his second match. In the MKDD tournament, he is by far the quietest person in his race as Slowbeef spends most of their turn yelling.
  • Running Gag: Mentioning that he's sleepy and that he's playing while asleep.
  • Unexpected Character: Fans were surprised when they mentioned he would potentially join the Guys in their fourth Let's Play.

SyKhotic (played Lucas in SSBB)

  • The Ace: Aside from Jon, he is the only competitor to have never lost a match. At least until he fought Jon. Twice.
  • Canada, Eh?: Like Jon, he hails from Canada
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the giving end, to Lucahjin. Of course, there is a lampshade hung.
    • And later, on the receiving end from Jon. Twice.
  • Flat "What.": See Mind Screw below.
  • I Have Many Names: He calls himself several different names during the match.
  • Mind Screw: In-universe; considers SuperJeenius's dodging of the lava wall in Norfair to be this, if his flabbergasted reaction is anything to go by.
    SyKhotic: What.
    SuperJeenius: Problem?
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't say much in his first or third battle, but opened up more in the second.
  • Running Gag: Introducing himself by several different names (all of which actually apply to him) at the start of his battles.

CloudFangLP (Played Shy Guy in Mario Power Tennis, played Luigi in MKDD, on Team Curly Mustaches with GaiaCrusher9)

  • Ascended Fanboy: He went from uploading clips of the Guys' videos, to participating in one of them, though he did already have his own Let's Plays.
  • Hero Killer: Defeats NCS in the first round of Mario Power Tennis.

PurpleRodri (Played Daisy in Mario Power Tennis, Kirby in SSB, Koopa in MKDD, on Team Purple Pwniez with SullyPwnz)

  • The Ace: Reaches second place and comes exceptionally close to beating Chugga, who won his previous matches via Curb-Stomp Battle.
    • Later, during the Smash 64 tournament, He manages to reach the Winners Semifinals, though it may or may not count since several of his wins had him relying on in-game items.
    • And in the Mario Kart Double Dash tournament, He makes it to the semi-finals losing to the Koopa Krew.
  • Cross Player: Played as Daisy in the tennis tournament.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers one unto ALoyalGamer in their tennis match.
  • Hero Killer: Was responsible for NintendoCapriSun's defeat in the Winner's Bracket of the Smash 64 tournament. And his team defeat's Chugga's team in Mario Kart: Double Dash.
  • Les Yay / Crack Pairing: Invoked in the joke that he's not only with Daisy, but that he's also female and with Daisy.
  • Person as Verb: Chugga and Josh say, "Ready to Rodri."

Jon Paula (Played Mario in Mario Power Tennis)

AttackingTucans (played Link in SSB)

  • Always Someone Better: Even better at being a Man Child than Chugga, who comes off as staid and restrained compared to him.
  • Beginner's Luck: Possibly. He does rather well in Smash 64 for someone who's never played the game before (although he has played the others in the series).
  • Handicapped Badass: In Smash 64, he claims to have never played the game before. In his match against Josh, he wins without losing a single life.
  • Large Ham: Especially in the first round of the Smash 64 tournament.
  • No Indoor Voice: He can take it all the way up into the red.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: As Chugga put it: "In case you haven't guessed, Tyler is very vulgar."
  • Throwing Your Bat Always Works: How he wins against Josh
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Donnabellez during their match. Jon is shocked by how they treat each other. Anybody who's seen Super Mario Galaxy Versus is not.

Stephen and Mal (Stephen played Ness in SSB and Baby Luigi in MKDD; Mal played Pikachu in SBB and Toadette/Paratroopa on Team Stephenplays)

  • Took a Level in Badass: Stephen loses the first round of Smash 64. After that, he keeps on winning and manages to make it to the finals of the loser bracket before being beaten by Pcull. Keep in mind that Jon considers Pcull a Worthy Opponent so that really says how impressive Stephen did.
  • Unfit for Greatness: In Double Dash he never lets Mal drive. The reason for this becomes clear in a later video series he does with her where they play versus matches of different Mario Kart games - Stephen thought he was better than Mal at Double Dash. As that video series shows, he was wrong.

Tyler, Tyson, Spencer and Chris of Wii Rike To Pray (Tyler and Tyson played Pikachu, Spencer played Captain Falcon, and Chris played Fox in SSB)

  • The Ace: The group of four are considered the most likely to win as they play Super Smash Bros. a lot.
    • Tyler went undefeated during all the tournament, he was the responsible of knocking out two of the three main Guys, and additionally, he won the Smash 64 Tournament. A first in TRG, where someone else other than the main Guys ended victorious in a tournament.
  • Butt Monkey: Chris and Spencer are both eliminated without a single win.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Tyson and Chris return in the Bomberman Live tournament, but Tyler and Spencer do not.
  • Hero Killer: Tyler defeats Chuggaa, then Jon in both the Winners Bracket finals and in the Finals rematch
    • Tyson defeats Chuggaa in the elimination round.
  • Honor Before Reason: During his match with Jon, Tyler manages to get the Hammer which would have given him a clear advantage, but intentionally waits until the powerup times out so he can fight Jon fair and square. He wins anyway.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Tyler and Tyson both use Pikachu.

Pcull44444 (played Ness in SSB)

  • Badass: His only loss in the 64 tournament is to Jon. Jon even considers him a Worthy Opponent.
  • Troll: Part of his commentary style. In particular, when it's pointed out that a certain randomly chosen stage keeps showing up in fights with Pcull (one where he keeps using the mechanics of the stage and Ness' abilities to help him win) he claims that he's hacked the game to make it happen.
  • Worthy Opponent: To Jon.

Slowbeef (Played Luigi in MKDD, on Team Retsupurae with Diabetus)

  • Big Good: Of the Let's Play Community.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in two Thrown Controllers panels before appearing in the Mario Kart Double Dash Tag Team Tournament.
  • Graceful Loser: He even congratulates the other team afterwards.
  • I Have Many Names: In PAX East 2012, he claimed to be Oyster from Something Awful. And in PAX Prime 2014, he said he was Dark Syde Phil before saying he wasn't.
  • Large Ham/No Indoor Voice: By far the loudest person in their races. He even starts shouting to the rooms next door when they point out how loud he's being.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: When racing in Mario Kart Double Dash during Thrown Controllers, he goes the wrong way and pretends he has no idea what he's doing.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: After their races against Team 41 Pimps is over, Slowbeef is heard congratulating the other team while they can barely be heard saying how excited they were to finally meet him.

MasaeAnela (played Koopa in MKDD, on Team Streetpassers with Chuggaaconroy, appeared as guest in Burnout Revenge, played Carver in Fortune Street: Mt. Magmageddon)

KoopaKungFu (Played Diddy Kong in MKDD, on Team Koopa Krew with SirEnobMort)

  • The Ace: Wins the entire Double Dash Tournament after a close final battle.
  • Irony: Neither SirEnobmort or him plays as Koopa or Paratroopa in their races. Though it's subverted in the final round.
  • Large Ham: Both his partner and him get pretty rowdy when they face each other in the finals.
  • Worthy Opponent: To the Purple Pwnies and SirEnobmort.

SirEnobmort (Played Toad in MKDD, on Team Koopa Krew with KoopaKungFu)
