    Ghost and Friends 


It's John Conquest, King of Communism!

"I am your host, the man they call Ghost!"

The 'hero' of the True Capitalist Radio broadcast, Ghost is a short tempered Texan pundit who has little patience for socialism, communism, fruitbowls, bronies, trolls and, well, a lot of things.

Tropes related to Ghost....

  • The Alcoholic: He denies it, but he has a LOT of cans around, calls for a drink after some rages, and frequently voices a desire to end the show and retire to a bar on Sixth Street.
  • Angrish: Early on, he would rage SO hard he couldn't even form coherent English, nor say anything else.
  • Asshole Victim: Thanks to his unpleasent, racist, homophobic, bullying nature. He deserves most of the abuse heaped on him.
  • Berserk Button: So, so many... just look at the main page!
  • The Bully
  • Catchphrase: He has a lot of things he says, so much that it's better to look at the main page.
  • The Chew Toy
  • Cool Old Guy: Against all odds, he occasionally has his moments of this. Despite apparently being a short-fused, late middle-aged redneck, he seems to be surprisingly knowledgeable about modern pop culture (music, video games, etc.), and sometimes has a Pet the Dog moment.
  • Deep South: Even though he doesn't sound the most Texan ever.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: He claims to have taken up drinking and smoking regularly to make the pain of the current state of America go away.
  • Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: It's not yet known what his real name is. Apparently, it's Richard.
  • Everything Is Big in Texas: Seems to hail from the Lone Star State.
  • Gag Penis: Claims to have a "15 and a half inch John Holmes sausage"
    • Teeny Weenie: A common trolling tactic is to remove the "15 and a" part.
  • Genius Ditz: Ghost may be immature and obnoxious, but the first segment of his broadcast shows that he has at least a pretty good understanding of how the markets work.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Pushing one of his many Berserk Buttons can send him into an impressive rage almost immediately.
  • He's Back: Returned to the airwaves late in 2015, after a three-year absence.
  • Hot-Blooded: Sometimes he gets so worked up over whatever issue he's talking about that he sends himself into a rage without the assistance of trolls.
  • Hypocrite: Where do we even begin?
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Often drinks on air, usually after someone calls in with something nasty.
  • Ineffectual Death Threats: He's made MANY threats on the trolls, usually about 'punitive damages'. He hasn't taken action.
  • Internet Tough Guy: Whenever a troll makes fun of Texas, he never fails to tell them that they'd get their asses kicked if they said that while in the state. He also frequently claims that he's in the process of seeking punitive damages for their trolling. Naturally, nobody believes a word of it.
  • Jerkass: He isn't a very nice person, at all. It's somewhat justified that the trolls troll him. However, he shows rare signs of goodness towards certain people.
  • Naytheist: While he is critical of organized religion, he has acknowledged that he believes in a God or some sort of higher force.
  • One of the Kids: In spite of Ghost trying his best to sound like a responsible adult capitalist, he often comes across as just as immature as the teenagers who call into his show. Hell, sometimes he comes off as more immature than them due to his nonstop temper tantrums, childish name calling, and generalizations of whomever he doesn't like.
  • Rated M for Manly: Or so he believes....
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He believes that tens of thousands of people throughout the world listen to his show.
  • The Social Darwinist
  • Trademark Favorite Food: "GOD DAMNIT, I WANT MY SHRIMP BACK!"
  • Unstoppable Rage: He can REALLY flip out like never before, and most of the time, when he gets going, he can't stop.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: The only reason many listen to his show is to laugh at his antics and rage.
  • Verbal Tic: Notably more than his other catchphrases, he utters "fer Christ's sake" every other sentence.
    • Also the same with "man".
  • Victorious Loser: Celtic and the NCF may have ended TCR, but Ghost seems to be quite happy now that he found a way to get away from the show.
    "Show may be gone, but #Ghost lives on. Brace for the future!"
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice noticeably sounds clearer and less compressed in the 2015 update video, with a stronger Texan accent. Likely the result of recording with a new microphone.

The Engineer

Artist rendering of The Engineer

"Aaaahraaaahyaaaah yaaaaaah!"

Ghost's loyal engineer, he's not exactly good at his job, not screening obvious troll calls and otherwise just screaming out mumbling garbage. However, he is very popular with the trolls.

Tropes related to the Engineer...

  • A Day in the Limelight: He got one when Ghost finally got so mad he stormed out of the studio, giving the trolls a chance to interact with him.
  • Angrish: His first language.
  • Breakout Character: His takeovers of True Capitalist Radio, along with his humorous personality, have made Engineer a star among the trolls, many who tell Ghost Engineer needs to have his own show.
  • Dumb Muscle: Most impressions on him, given how many obvious trolls Ghost had to deal with thanks to him.
  • Heroic BSOD: Had one of these when during one of his takeovers when the Austin Vibrator called up and stayed on for several minutes. The Engineer ended up crying near the end of the call, and the troll actually felt remorse for what he had done afterwards.
  • Hidden Depths: Of an unpleasant variety. When Ghost told him to play a song to honor Herman Cain, whom Ghost had decided to support... Engineer broke out the theme from Boss Nigger for the first time.
  • Hostile Show Takeover: He's successfully taken over the show several times, playing songs that Ghost hates, such as Nyan Cat and First of Da Month.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: He's a much better host than Ghost is, at least. Fanon tends to slightly exaggerate this.
    • Much to Ghost's dismay, the trolls exaggerated it into the Engineer being the talent.
  • Mistaken for Racist: Invoked by Ghost: "Are you a racist, Engineer?"
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: The only intelligble English he seems able to speak is "Fuck you!"
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: His voice sounds suspiciously similar to Ghost's previous switchboard operator, known as "Paul the Liberal", from back during his time hosting the True Conservative Radio, with the most notable difference being that people could actually understand Paul.
  • Springtime for Ghostler
  • The Unintelligible: Though Ghost claims he speaks perfectly fine.
  • You No Take Candle: Engineer can actually put a few words of coherent English in between his garble.
    Mmmyeawasaawwrrr gaawwrrrr fuck you!


Fuck fuck fuck.
"Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck"
Goofy Bone, most of the time

One of Ghost's only loyal supporters, until he got sick of him, Goofy_Bone also has his fair share of trolls hounding him, since his rather idiotic outbursts and laughable gangsta rap videos are easy material.

Tropes related to Goofy_Bone...

  • Butt Monkey
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Curses all the time
  • Defector from Decadence: Ghost was an asshole to him too, so Goofy_Bone turned tail on him.
  • Jerkass: Moreso he's just an obnoxious prick, not a violent-tempered jerk like Ghost.
  • Put on a Bus: He hasn't called the show very often since people started trolling HIS radio show, and his flame war with Tzeki.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He believes he's a great rapper, for one.
  • Smug Snake
  • Token Minority: He's Mexican, and as such is one of the two callers (the other being Asho) referred to as 'Bean and Cheese' by Ghost.


A tree with a great fondness for Ghost. May or may not be trolling him.

Tropes related to Gasgara

Ghost's Granny

Tropes related to Ghost's Granny...


A young fan of the show that Ghost has shown great affection for. Much to the dismay of the fans and trolls.

Tropes related to KaraszKun...

    Radio Trolls 

The Ghetto Capitalist/213

"Ghost baby what's going on?"

Ghost on the Ghetto Capitalist

The closest thing to an arch-nemesis for Ghost, Ghetto Capitalist is a capitalist who lives off his welfare checks, making money 'the ghetto way'. This, coupled with Ghost's extreme views on the welfare system, means whenever Ghetto Capitalist calls the show to tell Ghost about his latest capitalist achievement... Hilarity Ensues, baby.

Tropes related to the Ghetto Capitalist/213

  • Abusive Parents: Ghost accuses him of leaving the baby with, "-four or five month's worth of diaper rash," for one.
  • Breakout Character: He's easily the most well known troll out of the roster, thanks to his hilarious personality and his ability to make Ghost REALLY rage with ease.
  • Evil Counterpart: Ghost is a racist Texan capitalist. 213 is a free-spirited ghetto capitalist. Who's the evil counterpart depends on who you side with.
  • Fun Personified
  • Get Rich Quick Scheme: Often partakes in these as part of the ghetto capitalist life, baby.
  • Happy Ending: "One less enemy of the Ghetto Capitalist Revolution, baby! Woo!"
  • Leitmotif: the crying baby in the background in most of his calls.
  • The Rival: At least, the closest thing to one for Ghost.
  • Sitcom Arch Nemesis, Baby!
  • Verbal Tic: "- baby!"

Spermy the Cat

Ghost on Spermy the Cat

A caller from the early days of TCR, he'd employ soundboards of Ghost on the show.

Tropes related to Spermy the Cat:

Tub Guy

Ghost, reacting to Tubguy

A frequent caller, lauded by Ghost for allegedly listening to his show in a tub, and persistently begging for Ghost to get in with him. Oh my.

Tropes related to Tub Guy...

Ghost's reaction to the kid.

Tropes related to The Aborted Fetus...

Tropes related to Suck My Dick Guy

Vibrator/512 (sometimes 571 or 703) (Sounds played by KneeSlappington)

Occasionally called up, playing playing a clip of a repeating "Oooooooooooo~" (Which was taken from a redub of a G.I. Joe PSA.)

Tropes related to Vibrator/512

  • My God, What Have I Done?: KneeSlappington showed this reaction in the Youtube comments in the episode where he makes the Engineer cry.

The Internet Buttstalker/111

"That son of a bitch called here every goddamn day... FOR TWO YEARS!"
Ghost, after the Internet Buttstalker's most recent call.

A former frequent caller who spoke in a very effeminate voice while making highly suggestive (or outright pornographic) requests.

Tropes related to The Internet Buttstalker...

  • Abhorrent Admirer: While Ghost hates his guts, TIB would like nothing more then to get into his pants.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Calls Ghost "baby buns"
  • All Love Is Unrequited: More like all lust.
  • Camp Gay
  • Put on a Bus: After October 3's episode, he only appeared twice afterward: January 9's episode and February 13's episode. He was put back on the bus afterward.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Assuming his advances at Ghost were genuine and not just trolling. He is called the "Internet Buttstalker" for a reason, after all.

The 'Ban All Bronies' Cult (AKA Btown)

Ban all bronies. Ban all bronies. Ban all bronies. Ban all bronies.

Tropes related to the Cult...

  • Enemy Mine: Ghost actually sided with the bronies over the Cult.
    • Ghost later on lamented the absense of the Cult, actually wanting them to return when the bronies got out of control later on.
    Ghost: ""Where's the "Ban All Bronies... Ban All Bronies..." guy when you need him?"
  • Freudian Threat: Castrate bronies. Castrate bronies. Castrate bronies.
  • Hive Mind: Apparently.
  • Madness Mantra: Naturally.


Ghost, reacting to Celtic Brony's "Ghost's Father is Dead" splice.

Celtic Brony is a recurring troll who has made many notable splices. Though he was previously quite popular with the TCR community, his Chronic Backstabbing Disorder and penchant for rather misguided moral crusades has made him into a rather divisive figure.

Tropes related to Celticbrony...

  • Anti-Villain: Arguably. He was pretty justified in a lot of the things he did to Ghost, but he didn't stand a chance once he actually made Ghost leave and angered the collective Capitalist Army and Ghetto Capitalist Army by taking away their lulz.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He picked a fight with Ghost and lost.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: To the point where no one's really sure if he's even a brony anymore or not, or if he ever was.
    • The story is pretty hard to untangle, but it seems that CelticBrony was originally just a run of the mill brony until he had his dox (private details) stolen and published by the "Niggest Crook Force", an anti-brony group that somehow manages to put themselves forward as the rightful owners of pony-related Youtube videos and have them taken down via copyright infringement claims and then steals the private information when the brony sends a counter claim (which must include their private details.) CelticBrony explained all this later although claimed this was all a ruse on his part, presumably in the hope the people would believe the dox were fake and wouldn't send pizzas to his home. After the dox were first put up the NCF agreed to take the dox down in exchange for joining them and becoming an anti-brony himself although after receiving "brony of the year" from Ghost he apolgized to all bronies, switched back to being a brony and the NCF publicized his dox once again and so did Ghost even going so far as claiming he would harass CelticBrony's family on his show. Got all that?
    • And seeing how every brony has turned on him to make sure Ghost didn't leave (which nobody believed he would anyway) some might say Celtic Brony is a victim of this himself.
  • Face-Heel Turn: Multiple times, as detailed above.
    • The people who damned CelticBrony after the doxing incident seemed to have moved slowly back to supporting him after Ghost had them under his spell for a short period of time.
  • Heteronormative Crusader
  • Kick the Dog: He tried to dox the ever-likable Ghetto Capitalist.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Or so he claims....
  • Pass the Popcorn: The fandom's reaction to his reveal.
  • Toilet Humor: Celtic was the creator of the "GroupPoop" meme. One splice claimed that Celtic was Ghost's "group poop buddy"
  • Wild Card

Basement Dweller/Fruity McFaggot Sounding Fruit/"Shut Up Mom" Guy

Basement Dweller

Tropes related to the Basement Dweller


"*A-hack-hack-cough* HEY GHOST IT'S EDNA"

Tropes related to Edna

  • Autocannibalism: One call had Edna describe how she solved her sunburnt skin-peeling problem and lack of grated parmesean for her pasta at the same time.
  • Smoking Is Not Cool: Cigarettes have destroyed much of Edna's lungs.
  • Squick: (In-Universe) Edna tells Ghost to suck smoke out of the hole in her neck. Ghost throws up.

Second Harvest Drinker

"Johnnie Walker, second harvest. Ohhhh, yeaaaaahhh!"
Second Harvest Drinker

A relatively minor troll who called in a few times late into the show's run. His gimmick was that he had drank Johnnie Walker Blue Label, pissed it out, and is now drinking it again.

  • Artifact Title: Only his first call was "second harvest". Each subsequent call incremented in number.
  • Drink Order: Johnnie Walker that's been passed through his own urinary tract.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "Johnnie Walker, _____ harvest. Ohhh, yeaaaaahhh!"
  • Serial Escalation: Third harvest, fourth harvest, fifth harvest...
  • Squick: (In-Universe) Every call from him incites this reaction from Ghost.
  • Vulgar Humor: What else can you say about a guy who keeps drinking his own piss? Again and again?

    Twitter & Youtube Trolls 

Senator John C. Pooptickler

He will track you down.note 

A devoted member of the senate and longtime supporter of True Capitalist Radio, Senator Pooptickler barely survived an assassination attempt at the hands of the Niggest Crook Force. He's best described as Tub Guy meets John Mc Cain.

Tropes related to the Senator...

Prankster Pinkie Pie

Celtic Brony's right-hand man. Serves basically the same role for him as the Senator does for Ghost.

Tropes related to Prankster Pinkie Pie

Navy Huskie

One of the earliest TCR trolls and creator of many now-classic splices. One of the few trolls pretty widely liked by everybody, even Ghost.

Tropes related to Navy Huskie

  • Closer to Earth: He's the most normal person on True Capitalist Radio. This may seem odd until you consider the fact that this is a show featuring a perverted eight-year-old, a flamboyant man who spends his life in his bathtub, a foul-mouthed wannabe rapper, and whatever the hell Tri$ha is.
  • Friendly Enemy
  • Nice Guy


The most prominent of the video uploaders on Youtube. His original upload of the June 17th 2011 show exposed many people to trolling Ghost. He also started the Facebook fan page "Melting Pot of Friendship"

Tropes related to DarkRazorZ

  • Promoted Fanboy: Originally just a fan of the show, now he's the reason Ghost is as popular as he is now. Ghost personally thanked him for this on his twitter before ending his show.


Ghost: Who the hell is Coodoo?!
Coodoo: I'm your worst nightmare.

Coodoo17 is an up-and-coming splicer. Along with Shut Up Mom and FatMarshall, he's one of the more successful new trolls.

Tropes related to Coodoo17

The NCF (Niggest Crook Force)

A group recognized for attacks against the Furry Fandom, bronies—CelticBrony in particular—and the True Capitalist community.

Tropes related to the NCF


Ghost's Alter Egos

"Mmmmbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, mmmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, mmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhh."
"Goats," one of Ghost's fan-given alter egos

Nothing enrages Ghost more than hearing splices of himself saying things he never would. Naturally, his fans set about splicing together clips of his voice to create various characters with which to troll him.

Tropes related to Ghost's alter egos...
