ThornBrain, Mugiwara Yoshi, and BigTUnit1 altogether demonstrate the following tropes:
- Accentuate the Negative: Thorn wins gold, Yoshi wins silver, and Travis wins bronze.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Travis wins gold, Yoshi wins silver, and Thorn wins bronze.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Hurricane of Puns: Particularly in large brawls or after boss fights.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Thorn and Yoshi.
- Large Ham: Yoshi wins gold, Travis wins silver, and Thorn wins bronze.
- Power Trio
- Sarcasm Mode
- Shout-Out: Thorn and Travis are both music buffs, so this comes naturally to their commentary.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Yoshi and Travis.
- Berserk Button: Child LPers, and the dogs in his neighborhood.
- Bi the Way: Openly pansexual.
- Brutal Honesty
- California: Like with the rest of the team, he exhibits very few of the tropes associated with the state.
- Catch Phrase: "Welcome back to Let's Play _______."
- Country Matters
- Foreign Culture Fetish: A self-professed Anglophile. Explains his frequent use of Country Matters, British swears and slang, and putting U's into some words.
- Rant-Inducing Slight
- Trademark Favorite Food:Yoshi: "Thorn has a fetish for Dr. Pepper."
Mugiwara YoshiThe second-in-command and primarily a commentator. Has done the minority of Let's Plays, but Thorn still thinks they're better than his.
- The Ace: Tends to have the least on-screen trouble in games, and breezes through certain sections. Accentuated in the Punch-Out LP.
- Butt Monkey: He's not a bad case of this, but he is the butt of the joke more often than the other two.
- Joisey: Though being Dominican, this isn't obvious at all.
BigTUnit1 (Travis)The really funny guy. Invited to join Thorn for his Bomberman Hero LP, and remained as a permanent co-commentator when it became apparent just how funny he is.
- Ascended Extra: Was originally just a guest commentator for Bomberman Hero. By Twilight Princess he became an official member of the team.
- Cuteness Proximity: Is prone to this.
- Deep South: Lives in Texas, but like Thorn and Yoshi exhibits none of the expected stereotypes.
- First-Name Basis: The only guy on the team who is referred to by his actual name.
- The Gadfly: Always looking for an opportunity to get under the others' skin. It finally translates to gameplay in the Tri Force Heroes LP.
- Man of a Thousand Voices: Fittingly enough, he's a professional voice actor.
HighwangRecurring guest starting with Ocarina of Time in 2015 before going on to guest more often in 2016.
- A Day in the Limelight: Played A Link to the Past and Oniken for TheStrawhatNO's channel.
- Ascended Extra: Like Epee Em and Redundant before him, he used to just be a guest before joining in recordings more often.
- Forgot About His Powers: Second-hand version. He keeps forgetting Link can phase into the walls in A Link Between Worlds.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: Downplayed. He's familiar with Undertale, thus helps give Thorn some perspective when the latter streams it, but doesn't go into much detail for the sake of surprise.
OliviaRecurring fan artist (under the name "an-artist-complex"), brought into the videos in late 2014.
- Butt Monkey: Tends to be on the short end of the stick in commentaries that feature her.
- Canada, Eh?: Is the subject of a few Canada jokes, namely that Bear Hugger is her father.
- The Cutie
- Deadpan Snarker: Practically a requirement for commentating on this channel.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Yoshi, just like Travis.
Epee EmRecurring guest starting with Twilight Princess and sporadically as of 2013.
- A God is You: Epee Em's Skyward Sword debut has Thorn pulling this on him.
- Ascended Extra: He started out as another guest before going on to become one of the more recurrent commentators. He lampshades it during the Skyview Temple video."We're finally allowed in a dungeon video."
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Has supplied many disturbing fanart pictures since Bomberman Hero
- Large Ham
- Wiki Vandal: Quoth the edit history: "Because I, Epee Em, want to give Thorn something to yell at me about in the next video I'm in."
RedundantRecurring guest starting with Twilight Princess and until 2013.
- Ascended Extra: He started out as another guest before going on to become a recurrent commentator for a time.
- Tempting Fate: "I'm really glad I stopped my recording! So there's no evidence of this."
- The Midlands: From Stoke-On-Trent, though his accent was affected, according to him, by living with a friend from as far Oop North as possible.
- Verbal Tic: "-, to be honest."
