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.
- Absentee Actor: Formerly averted, having been in every single video until going on vacation in August 2015, resulting in this.
- 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
- Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Olivia outside of the videos, which Thorn addressed in Ocarina of Time 3D as being drastically downplayed while recording.
- 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.
- Absentee Actor: Has missed out on the most commentaries, usually due to computer problems or school.
- 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.
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.
- Promoted Fanboy: Originally used to be a fan artist before eventually becoming Thorn's girlfriend and a recurring guest.
- Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Thorn outside of the videos, which Thorn addressed in Ocarina of Time 3D as being drastically downplayed while recording.
- 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."
HighwangRecurring guest starting with Ocarina of Time in 2015 before going on to guest more often in 2016.
- A Day in the Limelight: Plays A Link to the Past in streams which are later posted on the Strawhat No 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.
