[[folder:The Zaibatsu]]
The self-proclaimed American Dream. [[note]]Actually Canadian, like everyone else in the series[[/note]]

Matt is pretty much the centerpoint of the series. It's his [=YouTube=] account, after all. Almost all videos have had Matt in them in some capacity. When the series began, he played the role of the dumb guy opposite Pat, but as the series settled into a groove, he let more of his natural persona come through. Knowledgeable about many kinds of games, but he tends to steer away from [=RPGs=].
* AchievementsInIgnorance: Can be prone to this, like when he threw the axe in ''Silent Hill'' and got caught in the scenery in ''[[VideoGame/MaxPayne Max Payne 3]]''; the latter was a bug, but FridgeBrilliance came into play when it was finally revealed that he had a background in videogame QA.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AscendedFanboy: Of Godzilla; Following a week of Godzilla games in 2014, Creator/NamcoBandai sent him a copy of the 2015 Godzilla game to promote, which he seemed only too happy to do.
* {{Badass}}: Due to him playing a majority of the games in their videos, Matt has curb stomped some of the most difficult and glitchy games imaginable.
* ButNotTooForeign: The enthusiasm for America stems from having an American mother and he appears to have Polish blood as well.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: Matt easily has the most Catch Phrases of any of the best friends, and occasionally the others will shout them as well.
* CatchPhrase: AMERICA!!
** ...Nailed it!
** See you later, fuckers!
** More than you think but less than you hope.
** "What a mysterious game!" which, following some Brazilian games in their second Shitstorm, has evolved to "What a mysterious jogo!"
*** Subsequently "What an ''amazing'' game!" when the game in question proves to be less than amazing, and "What a hero!" when the character in question is being a {{Jerkass}}.
** It's not great... (When Pat complains about something)
** Pronouncing any word that normally ends in "''-ation''" to end in "''-acion!''"[[note]]Yes, always with the exclamation mark.[[/note]] (ex. "Operacion!","Investigacion!"). The exception to this is the word "Revelation", which will ''always'' [[TypoOnTheCover be pronounced]] "[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilRevelations Re-va-LAY-uh-ton]]".
** ''"Remember that time when..."'' which is oft followed by some hideous factoid about a character from a game they're playing.
** "BAT-TER-Y!"
** "Do it ''doucement''," - which the Best Friends actively admit is stolen from Film/TrueLies. Both say it, but it's become more of a Matt thing.
** "He/She/They love(s) it!"
** "Sha-Blams!" Usually used sarcastically... either dully stating the phrase while doing something badass, or shouting the phrase enthusiastically while doing something mundane. Lifted from [[RedLetterMedia Mr. Plinkett's movie reviews]], of which the Best Friends are fans.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Usually associated with Blue or Black, or [[PatrioticFervor Red White and Blue]] as a color scheme.
* CoolPet: A ball python named [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Jack]]. We see him a few times in Matt's apartment videos.
** And in a video timed for Wrestlemania, his rats, [[VideoGame/FinalFight Poison and Roxy]], who we are informed, [[ExactWords 'don't give a fuck about wrestling']].
** And now he's added a rescued cat to the mix, named [[VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition Zach]] by the fans.
* TheDitz: Matt's naivete ranges from simply being misinformed, to childlike, to whatever brain-dribbling-out-his-ears stupidity was going through his head during ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''.
** CharacterizationMarchesOn: Matt tended to be really stupid in earlier episodes, often having trouble with understanding the basics of how a game works. This was toned down to more believable levels of stupid in later seasons. It's also been outright confirmed that his stupidity in the Machinima episodes is scripted; while he and the other Best Friends talk about stupid shit in their LP's, there's little to none of the kind of humour making up the Machinima episodes.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Male or female, he'll comment on their appeal.
* EagleLand: Type 1, even though he's Canadian. May have something to do with [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas his mom being American]].
* EpicFail
** NeverLiveItDown: Throwing an axe in a bottomless pit.
* {{Fanboy}}: To ComicBook/ThePunisher, [[Series/ManVsWild Bear Grylls]], Franchise/MetalGear, Creator/EmmaStone, and Hitomi J-Cup.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Apathetic. Most noticeable on the podcast, where he tends to stay out of arguments and debates, [[PluckyComicRelief and is the one most focused on humor]].
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Melancholic.
* GenreSavvy: More than he lets on. Especially prelevent in the ''Walking Dead'' Let's Play.
* GoodIsDumb: He played this up in the earlier days of the channel, but nowadays this is a RetiredTrope.
* HappilyMarried: As of October 31, 2015. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming D'aww.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads
-->'''Liam:''' She looks like your kind of woman. Fiery red hair... that's it.
* HiddenDepths: It's mentioned that he went to art school, and it shows on occasion, usually for the sake of a joke. His Website/DeviantArt page is still [[http://the-switcher.deviantart.com/ up]], though he doesn't use it anymore.
-->'''Matt:''' ''*on Earth Defense Force 2017*'' You could play this game on a plasma TV and hang it in the Guggenheim.\\
'''Pat:''' Where the hell is the Guggenheim?
** He's also surprisingly knowledgeable about literature and Greek and Roman culture.
** He speaks French fluently, though Pat only brings it up partially as an insult due to it causing Matt to mispronounce some English words.
* IconicOutfit: His ComicBook/ThePunisher skull beanie.
** To the point that [=PlagueOfGripes=]' fan videos will try to include Matt wearing some semblance of it in any interpretation, such as on a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHcJyfi8A-0 judge's wig]] or a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQa-rnV-OBM regular skull when he looks like a caveman]].
* {{Keet}}
* KindheartedCatLover: Wasn't very apparent until he got Zach, whom he "Instantly fell in love with". He cares for him so much that he opted to just move out of his old apartment instead of getting rid of him when his landlady wanted Zach out.
* LemonyNarrator: As he is the one who edits the videos, all the text on-screen is from him, and generally either snark or exposition that's ridiculous bias toward himself.
* ManlyTears: During the last video for VideoGame/TheWalkingDead LetsPlay Matt says he cried during WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}.
* NiceGuy
** BewareTheNiceOnes
* NiceHat: Usually seen with his beanie, albeit he's been sporting a black baseball cap of late.
* NightmareFetishist: Finds the idea of a woman with a Gianna Michaels (pornstar) body with [[{{MortalKombat}} Scorpion]]'s [[{{FlamingSkulls}} head]] very appealing.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Possibly. While he does seem more naive and prone to simple mistakes than Pat, there are times where he proves he knows just as much trivia/info about whatever game as [[{{Fanboy}} Pat]] does about Franchise/ResidentEvil:
-->'''Viewer:''' Why is Matt the smart one now?
-->'''Matt:''' I always was, we just never had a game that proved it before.
* ObliquelyObfuscatedOccupation: Averted after time. While vague at first, as the Best Friends became more accustomed to their new fanbase, it was revealed Matt's job prior to the Zaibatsu was quality assurance for companies including Ubisoft and Eidos, and he mentions doing translation work for a Franchise/DragonBall game where he managed to sneak in an [[MemeticMutation "over 9000"]] joke. He's also detailed that he worked as a lead tester for ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'', later the subject of a full LP, where he notably submitted the list of violent and sexual content to the ESRB. In another he mentions testing a ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'' game, and ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' (which was actually the subject of an early Two Best Friends Play episode). He also briefly worked as a tester on the ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'' reboot, acting as a placeholder VA for multiplayer. Perhaps most importantly, the bonds with the other Best Friends besides Pat (as well as Matt's fiancée) were forged during these roles.
* RedOni: With Pat to Woolie's blue.
** The BlueOni when compared to Pat, though.
* StunnedSilence: Whenever Pat says something particularly creepy or offensive.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: When they first played ''Slender'', he wasn't scared of him at all. Over the time between that and them playing ''Slender: The Arrival'', he watched ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' (the entire reason Pat was so scared in the first place) and admitted at the beginning of the video that he was now just as scared as Pat was.
** That being said, he still fares a lot better than Pat during the game.
* VerbalTic: Has a habit of adding "though" to the end of his words when it makes no sense (for example, "Shut up, though").
** He does the same thing with "even" (shut up, even) and he and Woolie share the phrase "Yeah, yeah, yeah!" when they're excited.
** Ever since the month-long RustleMania event several years ago, Matt is utterly incapable of saying the word "wrestle" correctly in lieu of "rustle".
* VideoGamePerversityPotential: Frequently tries to position the camera to look up female characters' skirts.
** If given the opportunity, he'll strip down just about any character.
* YourMom: Which bothers Pat because Pat's mom watches some of the videos and he gets to hear her thoughts on such jokes.
** Namely that she thinks they're [[ActuallyPrettyFunny hilarious]].

The second of the Two Best Friends. Pat appears in the main series, most of the full Let's Plays, and the Super Best Friends Brawls. Pat's original role was the angry knowledgeable straight man opposite Matt, and as the series settled into a groove, he's... pretty much still the angry one. Often declared to have had "no childhood" because he grew up on the Sega Genesis. Also plays a lot of [=RPGs=] that Matt didn't.
* {{Adorkable}}: Pat stares at Mercenary Kings has him invoke this without a foil to commentate with.
* AcceptableTargets: [[invoked]] His uncle. Matt has made some pretty terrible jokes about him during the videos, and Pat's only response at times has been to guffaw and then say his uncle is usually ''worse'' than whatever Matt joked about.
* TheAlcoholic: Full of more than a few drinking stories, and is seen downing an entire bottle of wine by himself while watching ''Film/SamuraiCop.''
* {{Angrish}}
* TheAntiNihilist
* {{Badass}}: When [[BadAss Matt]] (see above) can't beat a game, Pat ''will do it for him''.
* BerserkButton: Jackson Pollock; Ego the Living Planet; Film/FaceOff; StreetSharks; Creator/JohnLeguizamo (to the point where he jokes of an "X days since bashing Leguizamo" clock)
** To him the worst kind of people is LesCollaborateurs. He threw Reggie from walking Dead season 2 under the bus because of it.
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: He makes a point of discussing this trope during the Tormentum playthrough as a side effect of games with a binary KarmaMeter. Once he decides he's going for the bad ending, he does not hesitate to do bad things as there's no reason to not be the evilest son of a bitch around.
* ButtMonkey: During the "Super Amazing Friends" monthly special.
* CatchPhrase: [[BlatantLies It's fine!]]
** See ya later, Fuckers!
** Eat it, shitlords!
** [[PreAssKickingOneLiner 'Sup]] [[HypocriticalHumor Nerds!]]
** [You] Know/See what I mean? Perfect!
** For the DarkSouls2 playthrough: "Drop your shield!". It has become a RunningGag to mock Pat with that phrase, which never fails to piss him off.
** TheEvilWithin granted us "Excuse me!".
** Don't talk to me about "Insert Thing".
** This is "Insert Thing" porn.
* CelebrityResemblance: His resemblance to LouisCK is hard to ignore.
* CloudCuckoolander: For starters, he thinks prison yards should have monkey bars.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Always associated with [[FieryRedhead Red]].
* CurbStompBattle: ''VideoGame/{{Anarchy Reigns}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Perfect Dark}}''
** Anything that involves ButtonMashing.
*** Specifically mashing one button repeatedly, as opposed to randomly mashing buttons on a controller.
** Though on the opposite end of the spectrum, he had a lot of trouble keeping up with Matt and Woolie in MarioKart, often starting each race spinning out of control due to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard button mashing]] before the start of each race (and don't even get us started on how far he fell behind on Rainbow Road). Not a straight case, however, as he did randomly win one race and came close to winning another (before ending up in 3rd again at the last second).
** He can pretty much destroy any lower-level player at 3rd Strike effortlessly, as shown in his escapades on XBL.
* CutenessProximity: Pat ''really'' loves dogs. He once said in the podcast that he's incapable of staying angry when in the presence of a friendly dog.
* DayInTheLimelight: Pat stares at Mercenary Kings has him going solo while Pat Stares at Japan chronicles snippets of his trip to Japan with his girlfriend.
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice King]]: Though he is still kind of a Jerk, he is noticeably a lot nicer in later videos.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: He's 5' 3".
* {{Expy}}: Liam has stated that Pat sleeping in his armchair looks like MODOK.
* FanBoy: Of [[Franchise/MortalKombat Reptile]] and invisibility in general.
** Also of tank controls and most of the SurvivalHorror genre. Most notably the SilentHill and Franchise/ResidentEvil franchises.
** He also seems to be a fan of Playstation consoles and, like Matt, the Metal Gear series.
** Have you played {{Xenogears}}?
** He's ''huge'' on the Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei series, and specially the VideoGame/{{Persona}} sub-series, to the point where he got Woolie into it as well. However, in recent times even he has begun to grow tired of Atlus's constant shilling of ''Persona 3'' and ''Persona 4'', especially in regards to ''Persona Q''.
* FieryRedhead: Zig-zagged. In almost all of his videos, he's this. In a few other videos, like his work with Did You Know Gaming and his Top Ten Lists, he's far more sedate, to the point where fans comment heavily upon it.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Cynic. He admits to finding the failures and screw-ups of companies and other people hilarious, [[SuperOcd is prone to freaking out about trivial things]], [[VitriolicBestBuds and is often pitted against Liam in arguments and debates on the podcast]]
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric.
* FriendToAllChildren: He may act like he hates them, but Pat will usually pick choices that benefit children. He admitted to saving Duck in his run through of The Walking Dead, treats Sarah kindly, adores Clementine, and in The Last of Us, he [[spoiler: actually starts to appreciates Ellie and gets angry at the idea of her dying in order to cure humanity.]] He displays a ton of PapaWolf tendencies even if he doesn't want to admit it.
* FullNameUltimatum: The only people who ever called him Patrick were his teachers, so his full name makes him "feel like a little boy".
* GenreSavvy: Correctly predicts a number of events in ''Last Of Us''.
* GoodIsNotNice: In games with choices that will test your morality, Pat will generally choose the morally right ones. Doesn't do much to quell some of his {{Jerkass}} tendencies though.
* HiddenDepths: Discusses the storytelling of the Franchise/MetalGear series.
** He's very aware and sensitive towards a number of social issues and when games play into them.
** As Indigo Prophecy showed, he and Woolie are well aware of how much society stigmatizes and misunderstands the mentally ill. Pat went far enough to say that their treatment is comparable to racism. He's very impressed with VideoGame/MurderedSoulSuspect's inoffensive portrayal of a mental hospital and the people in it.
** He mentions while playing I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream that he has a degree in psychology.
* HotBlooded
* JerkAss: Pat is incredibly belligerent towards Matt. Matt has pointed out that he has made choices in games that Pat made fun of, then took the other option in similar choices and also got made fun of. Pat gleefully agreed.
--> '''Pat:''' You're talking to somebody who litters for amusement.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sometimes, when he's not deriding him, Pat will help Matt out when he's stuck in a game.
** NotSoAboveItAll
* LaughingMad: Usually after being hit by a really big scare.
* LimitedWardrobe: You'd be hard-pressed to find a picture of him in something other than a green polo shirt and khakis.
* ManlyTears: He cried during the VideoGame/TheWalkingDead [[BittersweetEnding ending.]]
* MistakenNationality: Because he's short, red-headed, and named Patrick people tend to assume he's Irish and make a lot of jokes about him being a leprechaun, something Liam brings up in their LP of ''VideoGame/BarkleyShutUpandJamGaiden''.
* MisanthropeSupreme: Played for laughs but Pat mentions that if he has 2 millions, he'll just disappear since he is rich enough to never have to deal with people ever again.
* TheNapoleon: The shortest (5'3) and the most aggressive of the "Super Friends"
** {{Keet}}: He's the smallest and perhaps the most openly passionate about video games, as evidenced by his high pitched squeals concerning certain topics.
* OneHourWorkWeek: It would seem Pat doesn't have any other job other than the videos.
** Confirmed with Pat's Reddit account; He's stated that both he and Matt have essentially been able to quit their day jobs - he was packing groceries whilst Matt worked quality assurance - because of how well the series has taken off. He has also stated that despite the fact creating an LP seems like the easiest thing in the world, it can take several hours of work to chop up several hours of gameplay and make sure everything works.
* PapaWolf: Easily the most paternal of the best friends, though he tries to hide it. He turns completely sadistic when Ellie is taken from him in Last of Us, despite trying to distance himself from her by calling her names.
** And let's not forget how he treated Clementine. He genuinely likes her and pushed Matt to pick options that benefited her well-being.
* PaperTiger: Is more prone to crying than Matt is, but also seems to scare more easily than Matt despite being a survival horror fan.
* SitcomArchnemesis: [[VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition Quint.]]
* RedHeadedHero: With all the [[FieryRedhead fiery temper]] to boot.
* RedOni: With Matt to Woolie's Blue.
* SirSwearsALot: None of them are shy about swearing, but Pat easily does it the most.
* StraightMan
* SoulSuckingRetailJob: Unlike the other three, who work or have worked in game Q&A, Pat's previous employment was mostly retail and he is vocally happy that the channel had done well enough for him to have quit his day job.
-->''The most important skill you learn in retail is how not to [[GoingPostal stab people]].''
* SuperOCD: Seems to have a lot of weird habits regarding toothbrushing and making his bed, and the others will often mock him by telling him something in his apartment is dirty or out of place. Obsessively manages save files and the inventory in [=RPGs=] and says (and shows) that it irritates him when the amount of consumables in his inventory is not a multiple of five. See the bug story in the podcast for the best example of this. During the ''Bloodborne'' LP he claimed he would delete the save file they used after the LP is over because he wants to play again on his own ''but hates the idea of his save being listed second''. And in the video for ''Avengers: Battle for Earth'', Liam stops Pat's trolling by rubbing his hand down the TV screen, [[OhCrap Matt and Woolie freak out]], Liam laughs. Pat? [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Dead.]] [[TranquilFury Silent.]]
--> '''Pat:''' Woolie, if you fucking shaved your hair, I think I will have a nervous breakdown.
* TeamKiller: Non-online example.
* ThatCameOutWrong: Several times!
-->'''Pat:''' I'm [[ShoutOut One-inch punching]] your mom!\\
'''Pat:''' I'm wet and ready to go!
** He also had a slip up when watching VideoGame/MortalKombat9 where he remarked that two of the characters would have a "hot kid", only realizing later (after getting made fun of by Matt and Woolie) how wrong it sounded.
*** Funnily enough, he made a similar comment during the LP of VideoGame/HeavyRain, where he commented that Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Marion Cotillard's characters in ''{{Inception}}'' had hot kids, as opposed to Matt, who said they were "divine".
* TookALevelInKindness: In earlier videos when trying to play up their personalities, he was much more loud, rude, and inappropriate, even throwing around offensive slurs such as "fag". He stopped with that attitude relatively quickly though, and in later videos and podcasts makes it clear that he is a firm supporter for feminism and LGBT rights.
* VerbalTic: Has a habit of slipping into a mild ChristopherWalken accent that sometimes seems unintentional.
** [[CanadaEh Eh?]]
** "You know what I mean?" and "Perfect!" seem to be slipping into this during his VideoGame/DarkSoulsII playthrough with Woolie. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9-ua4nZHT8 In compilation form!]]
** His voice will suddenly increase in pitch when he's angry/scared/excited.
* WrongNameOutburst: Pat has called Liam and Woolie "Matt" after they screwed up repeatedly while playing {{VideoGame/Deception}} and VideoGame/DarkSoulsII.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: From appearances, one might guess Pat's the oldestest member of the Zaibatsu, but he's actually ''younger'' than Matt by 4 years.

The third of the Super Best Friends. Woolie is an actual fighting game competitor and has attended EVO and several other competitions. Naturally, his knowledge extends largely into fighting games, but he also is well versed in the old school games. Manages the Super Best Friendcast and the Mailbag before it was retired.

* AnimalsHateHim: Or rather, he hates animals. With the exception of Zach.
* AscendedExtra: First appeared as the unnamed "other guy" in the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' video, and didn't make an actual named appearance in the Machinima episodes until the ''Series/GameOfThrones'' episode.
* {{Badass}}: Especially in the [=WWE'13=] let's play, were he beats [[BadAss Matt]] ''and'' [[BadAss Pat]] three rounds in a row!
* BerserkButton: He does not like being called a liar. Naturally, Matt and Pat call him a liar frequently and say he said things that are untrue.
** It seems to have tuned down over time though, one podcast has him mention that he's almost amused that since he knows it's false, anyone who repeats the joke themselves becomes the real liar for spreading it.
** To this extent, he hates shows and games that rip off other things, spending most of the BikerMiceFromMars playthrough complaining about how it is a rip off of TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles.
*** This tends to play into his dislike of David Cage, particularly in the ''BeyondTwoSouls'' LP, where he repeatedly found many of the plot developments hackneyed and derivative of better games and stories. He even called the PlotTwist regarding Aiden and Jodie's relationship after Matt told him something like it had been done in a previous project, reasoning that it would have been easier for Cage to rip it off than come up with something original.
** Thieves and theft in general. Highlighted particularly in Episode 50 of the Super Best Friend Cast, where he refers to them as "cunts of the highest order," for the fact that his girlfriend's bike had been recently stolen. This stems from his childhood when his Atomic Purple Game Boy Color was stolen from him.
** Woolie hates the trope where characters in a story don't just talk to each other to clear up a misunderstanding when they have evidence or easily can in order for there to be a conflict forced into the plot.
* TheBigGuy: The largest of the Best Friends at a little over 6 feet tall, and is noted to be quite strong. He was a football player in highschool and shook down kids who tried opening his locker. [[NoodleIncident It has been joked that he killed a guy in a game of football]].
* BlackBestFriend
* BlueOni: To the best friends.
* BriefAccentImitation: Speaks in near-perfect Jamaican patois on occasion during the ''VideoGame/PredatorConcreteJungle'' playthrough.
* ButtMonkey: 2013 has seen Woolie receive a lot of abuse when he's not around. When Matt and Pat went to E3, they specifically had members of the industry address the camera, telling Woolie how horrible he was.
** Matt got a photo of Creator/JessicaNigri with her signing it with "Woolie, you're still an ass poop balls. Jessica Nigri"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When he was first introduced, he was the posterboy of the typical FGC (fighting game community) player, caring only how things relate to fighting games and what's 'hype' at the time. Now...well that's technically still true, but he's shown himself to be knowledgeable in many different fields of study, and despite his competitive attitude is one of the most level-headed members of the group.
* ChasteHero: "I'd pick VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 over sex with two bisexual women".
** NeverLiveItDown
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Loves green, and usually uses green palettes for his characters when given the opportunity.
** Lampshaded in the second episode of the ''EternalDarkness'' playthrough, where Matt and Pat note that if Woolie were there, he would have chosen Xel'lotath's artifact, purely because it was green.
* CripplingOverspecialization: He's only really good at fighting games.
** Add onto that retro point-n-click adventure games, being able to beat I Have No Mouth on his own before even Plague did (who managed to nearly finish his run before Pat and Woolie's dual playthrough even started).
* CatchPhrase[=/=]TrashTalk: Poo-Babbies. Used repeatedly during one of the Old-School Playthroughs, to the point that Matt complained to Pat about it.
** He stopped using it after a while. He must have heard the complaints.
** "Kill me or die, one of the two!"
** "Death is the only true freedom!"
** [[HeroicSecondWind "Losing is winning!"]]
** "You didn't win! ''You didn't win''!" as a way of pettily taking away an opponent's victory.
** "What was your plan, sir?" said when [[ArtificialStupidity a character in a game does something stupid.]]
* DrowningMySorrows: When he started the Reboot lp he was drinking liquor to get through (one of his drink was Chartreuse, a 40-55% alcohol by volume). He stopped because while it is lping on easy mode it was kind a bad habit.
--> '''Woolie:'''Sometime it's better just crack the bottle, put it to your lip and whisper: Easy operation.
* FailureHero: The most consistent RunningGag about him is his constant failure. [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Losing to Daigo]] is brought up most, but Pat and Matt play up every other time he's lost as well.
* FanBoy: Of [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Casca]]. And seemingly [[BoyishShortHair short-haired tomboys]] in general.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Realist. Mostly on the podcast, with Pat and Liam being the two extremes.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Phlegmatic.
* HiddenDepths: He's surprisingly knowledgeable on the topic of [[Creator/HarlanEllison Harlan Ellison]] and his works, as evidenced in the I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream playthrough.
** He apparently speaks a bit of Greek, and told Pat it's not a particularly hard language to learn.
* IDontKnowMortalKombat: He claims to have RealLife experience in collecting coconuts, and thinks that will help him with the coconut collection minigame from ''No More Heroes 2''. He's quickly proven wrong.
* LesCollaborateurs[=/=]TranshumanTreachery: Becomes a RunningGag during the playthrough of ''VideoGame/XCOM2'', when Woolie admits that he would totally betray the human race if it meant getting alien superpowers. The other three promptly spend the entire playthrough [[WhatTheHellHero chewing him out over it]] and pointing out all the ways [[SlaveRace his]] [[HumanResources plan]] [[AssimilationPlot would]] [[BodyHorror seriously]] [[DidNotThinkThisThrough backfire]].
* NoodleIncident: He's "ruined seven Christmases, and saved four"
** And as for the made up incidents, there's the pie stealing, the time he killed that guy in football...
* NWordPrivileges: He usually uses the word in a joking context, or to actively make fun of the N-Word slinging stereotypes he and Matt usually encounter in Cryme Tyme.
** Invoked hilariously in one of the Final Fight playthroughs where he and Matt [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext reimagine Geese Howard as Will Ferrell's version of Robert Goulet]], and Woolie actively uses the word whereas Matt stops short of using it.
* OnlyOneName: The only one of the best friends to avert this. That is, until an [[http://business.financialpost.com/2014/02/03/how-machinima-and-youtube-helped-montreals-matt-and-pat-live-the-gamers-dream/?__lsa=c21a-6fcb article from Financial Post]] revealed Matt and Pat's last names.
* OnlySaneMan: He's calmer than Pat and less prone to doing idiotic things than Matt.
* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining: If stories of his childhood are to be believed, life in Grenada taught him [[HomemadeInventions how to build a rubber band gun out of popsicle sticks]] but not [[YourOtherLeft the difference between right and left.]] (Matt and Pat have both mentioned having to get used to the nautical terms as a result.)
* SoreLoser: Not really, but he likes to play up that angle with the facetious "you didn't win!" remarks. He ''is'' however a bit of a sore winner.
* TooDumbToLive: In Scrublords, he's starting to come across as this, by [[spoiler: signing up both him and Matt to a tournament that he didn't know who was running it, found it advertised on a note attached to his door written in lambs blood and various organs, and required blood samples in order to enter. The ''StarWars'' episode implies that he caused a [[GroundhogDayLoop time loop]] by doing so.]]
* {{Troll}}: According to Pat, After watching ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'', Woolie went and ordered online the candy tin used in the movie. He then ate all of the candy except one on purpose, so that whenever they are watching or mentioning the movie, he can grab the tin and shake it to make everyone hear the rattling. Pat and Matt agree that it's unbelievably fucked up.
* TruthAndLies: Hates liars and being called a liar. This leads Matt to frequently troll him by inventing incriminating stories to make others think Woolie is guilty of lying. (For example, Matt claimed that Woolie boasted off camera about beating VideoGame/FinalFight Streetwise, namely its EscortMission, in one sitting. This never happened.)
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: Woolie is indeed his real name. He's also stated that he is in fact Woolie Jr. and that his father evidently just wants to share the pain.

Known to many as "Rising Superstar Liam", as well as the resident otaku of the Super Best friends. He's a relatively recent addition, in a public sense. Known to like the PSP and PS Vita.

* TheAce: Even before he [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome trolled the SA-X]], they joke that when they hand him the controller, they'll be watching the end credits within ten seconds.
** After Woolie said the gym minigames in ''No More Heroes 2'' were impossible, he handed Liam the controller... and Liam beat them near-flawlessly.
** When Liam lost the multiplayer match of ''Pacific Rim'', Matt and Woolie make a big deal about it being his first defeat captured on video. They joke that the defeat has, at last, made him a full member of the Best Friends team.
* AscendedExtra: At first was just mentioned by Matt and Pat but started to make his debut in some videos such as the VideoGame/MetroidFusion playthrough, where fans loved him. Now, like Woolie, he frequently participates in videos along with the others and is a main stay on the podcast.
* {{Badass}}: '''''FULL STOP'''''. See TheAce above.
* BlueOni: Similar to Woolie, he is much calmer than Matt and Pat.
* TheBabyOfTheBunch: Zig-zagged; he's the youngest by several years, but no one seems to genuinely respect him any less. Most of the time this comes up, someone is either exaggerating his youth for the sake of a RunningGag or (half-joking) using it as reason to dismiss his arguments.
* CanadaEh: Much like Pat, tends to use Eh? at the end of his sentences, but it seems to come as a natural verbal tic. He's also the most patriotic of the group.
* CatchPhrase: A nasally [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII "PERFECT!"]]
** As well as [[TrashTalk Git Gud]].
** It's fine, while everyone in the Zaibatsu use it, Liam sounds way more confident in saying it's fine even though things are not.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: [[RealMenWearPink Usually Pink]], but when the entire Zaibatsu is represented together [[ChromaticArrangement he usually gets yellow]].
* CommanderContrarian: He does this in the podcast a lot. Primarily because in his own words, he feels that if someone doesn't play Devil's Advocate, "the others will just circlejerk when it comes to hating on something".
* DeadpanSnarker: Known for it.
--> '''Pat:''' Liam's deadpan delivery cannot be topped.
* EveryoneHasStandards: A good measure if something is truly bad is if Liam gives it criticism.
* FanBoy: Is known to be a big fan of ''Manga/KOn'' and generally anything by KyotoAnimation, though his favorite anime is actually {{Clannad}}. He also loves StreetsOfRage with a passion.
* FatalFlaw: Played for laughs with his inability to space jump properly in Metroid Fusion.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The Optimist. He has the most faith in companies, franchises, and systems currently doing poor financially, [[VitriolicBestBuds and is often at odds with Pat in the podcast]].
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Sanguine.
* TheGadfly: Or perhaps [[Main/{{Troll}} The Troll]], if you prefer. Take any game that requires them to work cooperatively. Liam will typically [[http://youtu.be/Brw6O0Txd94?t=15m53s find a way]] to [[http://youtu.be/cUNm816QUOE?t=3m54s ruin everything.]]
** Matt has gone on record saying that, aside from the fact that 4 players inevitably causes alliances of 2v2 and loses the free for all aspect, the reason Liam isn't in Brawl is because he will troll the whole game if he thinks it'll make him win.
* HandicappedBadass: Has aggressive wrist damage from playing too much Kid Icarus Uprising. Doesn't stop him from being the best gamer of the group.
* HiddenDepths: Pat mentioned on the ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' playthrough that Liam is knowledgeable about guns and hunting and has allegedly killed "hundreds of deer". Both Matt and Pat agreed that it was a "weird revelation".
--> '''Pat:''' Okay Liam; you're too moe '''and''' too manly.
* InSeriesNickname: Matt and Woolie jokingly call him "Rising Superstar Liam" at the beginning of the MetroidFusion playthrough. The fandom latched onto that, but "Liam-sama" is also becoming popular.
* KnifeNut: During Friendcast 4 show notes he shows off some impressive skill with the classic knife game.
* LeeroyJenkins: Liam has a tendency to "Jump the gun". This is especially evident in the ''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' playthrough, where he's failed multiple missions through deciding to try and cut the knot, many of which backfire, such as attempting to get information out of a target's subordinate. The subordinate doesn't know anything, and because he doesn't show up, his superior gets suspicious and leaves in a helicopter, making Liam fail the mission.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The theme of the Bizarre Jelly 5, the MagicalGirl [[ShowWithinAShow anime within a game]] from ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRx8SgHxgyg]]
** As of the 2014 Halloween Special, Wrestling/JohnCena's theme from the WWE. This despite (or more likely, because of) his complete unfamiliarity with wrestling.
* {{Lolicon}}: Mocked relentlessly for his love of cutesy anime, he's implied to be this multiple times
** The ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'' lets play seems to confirm this, with his comments on the... interesting anime parody video.
-->'''Woolie:''' Oh my god...
-->'''Liam:''' Shut it Woolie, they're too pure for you!
-->'''Woolie:''' [[SarcasmMode Yeah, check out that preteen nudity, so pure.]]
-->'''Liam:''' At least they're still worth marrying, unlike you.
-->'''Matt:''' (As Woolie mutters to himself) [[BigWhat What!?]] [[LikeAnOldMarriedCouple That almost sounds like you two got a divorce!]]
-->'''Woolie:''' Just send the van to Liam's house, just send the van and wait.
-->'''Matt:''' Theres gonna be a guy, like [[ToCatchAPredator "Hello Liam, have a seat, we need to talk."]]
** In any animesque game with girls in it he has a tendency for preferring the most petite one, like Gooseberry from the above anime parody. His favorite character in ''Manga/KOn'' is none other than resident TokenMiniMoe Azusa Nakano as well.
* MadnessMantra: Gets several whilst playing Outlast: The Whistle-blower on his twitch channel.
* NiceGuy:
* NoodleIncident: Just what the hell is he under house arrest for, anyway?[[labelnote:Answer]]Nothing, because this was just a joke that none of the guys expected to catch on.[[/labelnote]]
* NWordPrivileges: Debatably has them, as he's used the word in the Manga/AstroBoy and Videogame/StarFoxAdventures series with nobody batting an eye. Both with Woolie present, although he did apparently catch Woolie offguard when he said it, causing him to spit take and laugh.
** It should be noted that he only tends to say it if Woolie's used it first, as in the StarFox example. And it does not look like he realized he used the nickname of the Cloudrunners.
* {{Occidental Otaku}}: If the others' jabs about him during the [[VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale Playstation All Stars]] episode are to be taken seriously.
** In ''Metroid Fusion'', Matt and Woolie reference Liam's interest in Japanese television shows as well.
** ''Super Best Friends Brawl: MarioKart'' says everything he likes is "{{Moe}} as fuck."
** In ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'', Liam makes his triumphant entrance with an anime girl body pillow in hand.
** In ''[=WWE2K14=]'', he makes his apartment entrance to a song that can only be described as, "Mooooe!~'
** Though as Pat said in an episode of the Friendcast, "the secret is all 4 of us are actually gigantic weeaboos", so it's not just Liam.
* PrettyBoy: Is often said to be very handsome.
** In particular the other Best Friends are all stout with beards, while Liam is thinner, younger, and clean-shaven with long-ish hair.
* ThePollyanna: Easily the most optimistic and hopeful of the best friends, which combined with his tolerance for all games, even mediocre ones, has come to the point when, on any occasion he describes something negatively, it's treated as a minor disturbance in the way of the world.
* TheScapegoat: Matt, Woolie, and even Liam himself say to blame him for anything that goes wrong.
** Though he does take credit for winning the tag match in ''Playstation All Stars'', by killing both Matt and Pat after Woolie gets killed.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: He's often mocked for being this ''by accident'': even if he's good at a game, his advice tends to be so uselessly vague that everyone else summarizes it as "get good".
* SupremeChef: If the food he made during the final Nuzlocke run is any indication. (One item of which was a pepper stuffed with meat from a [[{{Awesome}} deer his dad hunted]].)
* TagalongKid: PlayedForLaughs as [[CaptainObvious he's not really a kid]], but he is treated like one of these by the other 3 because he's the youngest. He sometimes plays along with it, lying about his age and feigning ignorance about major events in the past by saying he wasn't born at the time. He's really in his early twenties.
** When putting his [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain birthday in]], Matt supplies the year as "2005." That would make Liam 10 at the time of the video.
* TaxidermyIsCreepy: As an avid hunter he doesn't subscribe to this line of thought, but Matt and Pat naturally rib him over it. He has several mounted deer head at home.
* TrashTalk: Cuts two legitimately great promos as Un[[Wrestling/JohnCena Cena]]ble during Rustlemania 2.
* VerbalTic: Much like Pat, [[CanadaEh "Eh?"]]
* WeirdAside: As Pat notes, he'll frequently chime in mid-conversation with something incredibly disturbing, [[{{Troll}} deliberately timing]] it in such a way that it can't be edited out.

Matt's pet Angora cat. He was originally a stray cat until he was taken in by a friend of Matt's, who then gave it to him because she couldn't take care of him. Matt has a real soft spot for him, and his name was chosen by the fans.
* AudienceParticipation: A poll was put up to decide his name, and eventually Zach won. Zach is a character from VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Killed [[spoiler: Liam]] in the Halloween party video.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: White, rounding out the [[ColorCodedCharacters color theme]].
* CuteKitten: Very cute.
* CutenessProximity: Tends to invoke this, especially with Matt.
* MoralityPet: Downplayed with Matt, somewhat. While he isn't a BAD person, Zach brings out his much more sensitive side.
** Played straight with Woolie, however: animals despise him and he hates them back, but he absolutely loves Zach.
* TeamPet: For the Best Friends Zaibatsu


[[folder: Associates]]
!!James Small
A former co-worker of Matt and Woolie's who is frequently mentioned by all of the Zaibatsu.

* ButtMonkey: Matt and Pat both make jabs at him constantly due to his weirdness and taste in games. One of the main things they mention is that he completely hates the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 and regards the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast as the greatest console ever made. When he finally appears on the podcast, Pat thinks James would have been ''fully justified'' in physically assaulting any of them.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He does not like ''VideoGame/NeverDead''.
--> ''James Small, willing to defend VideoGame/MindJack and other assorted pieces of garbage, plays VideoGame/NeverDead and says, "It's not very good." ''
* FullNameBasis
* TheGhost: Deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoked by]] Pat, who says he likes the idea of him never appearing. However he finally shows up in Episode 97 of the Super Best Friendscast as a guest, then in video during the 2015 [=E3=] videos.
* IAmVeryBritish: Whenever Matt or Pat mock him, they tend to do so in a Cockney accent. Oddly, when they first talked about him they mention that he's from Portugal.
* InVinoVeritas: He mentions [[WhatDidIDoLastNight finding out]] "Drunk James" doing a variety of strange things, like pulling pranks on ''himself'' (like hiding shoes inside tinfoil wrap inside an oven) and [[DrunkenMaster getting a perfect score on game, which he found nigh-impossible to do normally]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: When James finally makes an appearance on the podcast, it becomes clear that he's actually on good terms with the Best Friends.
* MeaningfulName: Well, seeing as how Matt and Pat [[IncrediblyLamePun belittle]] him...

!!Dork Girl
Technically three different girls, although generally the term refers to the "Main Dork Girl", the Dork Girls are mysterious friends to the group. Two of them were the toads in the Mario Brother Wii U video and the main Dork Girl made her first "official" appearance in an early episode of the podcast, as well as cosplaying the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask postman]] in the Matt & Liam's Bomb-Ass Zelda Orchestra Symphony Tour.
* {{Badass}}: All three of them have been known to talk shit to ''Pat'' (see above).
* DoesNotLikeShoes: One of them's first appearance had her sitting barefoot in the Best Friend's apartment.
* TheGhost
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* {{Otaku}}
* YaoiFangirl: According to the podcast.

Another friend of the group who's made several cameos and background appearances in several live action videos, most notably appearing in multiple Fighterpedia episodes, as well as driving the [[RunningGag Shame Car]] at the end of the VideoGame/DiveKick mini tournament. He's known for his love of self-imposed challenges, insane driving, and thick Vietnamese accent, [[TheVoiceless not that you would ever hear it]].
* DrivesLikeCrazy: According to Pat, he once went 120 mph with three other people asleep in the car while listening to the VideoGame/SuperSmashBros soundtrack to keep from nodding off, all to avoid paying an extra day on the rental car.
* SelfImposedChallenge: Woolie and Liam note that he likes to play games in the most difficult way possible.
** Inverted for RPGs apparently (although it could be argued otherwise). Woolie claims that he likes to level up to 99 as early as possible before moving forward in the plot, so he'll feel overpowered and breeze through.
* TheVoiceless: For years Billy's shtick was that he never spoke on camera. He still hasn't, but he did make a guest appearance on episode 98 of the podcast [[Awesome/TwoBestFriendsPlay and he made it count.]]
-->I'm fucking good.
** [[spoiler:Finally speaks in the "Naruto: The Broken Bond" LP to explain how Shenron wishing system works and conclude that Tenten sucks before leaving.]]

The series' most prominent animator, his work mainly being used for the intros to Machinima episodes. He also animates 'Fun-Time Adventures' and 'Two Best Sisters Play'. Aside from his interest for My Little Pony and being from Brazil, not much is known about him.
* AscendedFanboy: He originally just did 'Two Best Sisters Play' until the Best Friends recognized his work and commissioned him to do the intro animations to their Machinima episodes. He even gets more in-touch with them as they provide voice acting for 'Fun-Time Adventures'.
* TheGhost: Never heard from, never seen on camera, his name, interests, job and appearance are all a mystery. All we know is he can draw, he's from Brazil and he loves ponies.
* RealMenWearPink: He's a brony.

!!Plague of Gripes
One of the series main animators along with 2Snacks. He's notable for living on a farm, having a taste for West Coast Hip-Hop and being terrifying. A member of the supposed [[PsychoRangers Ustabiaz]], where he's their version of Pat.
* AllMenArePerverts
* AscendedFanboy: Like 2Snacks, he was once a fan animator until he was eventually recognized by the Best Friends themselves and was commissioned to do intro art/animations for their videos, eventually becoming friends with the group. There are even tentative plans to fly him up to Canada to participate in some videos.
* TheCameo: [[spoiler: Finally managed to invade Woolsworth in episode 52 of the DarkSoulsII LP.]]
** [[spoiler:He makes a live-action appearance in the fifth episode of Rustlemania II.]]
* ChainmailBikini: Notably averted. Plague draws a lot of cheescake and boobs, but when he draws a woman in armor, the armor is actually useful.
* TheGadfly: Plague's ''raison d'etre.'' Almost always involving [[{{Squick}} disgusting]] animal facts. Pat once described a conversation between them going perfectly normal until apropos of nothing Plague started bombarding him with articles about [[NIghtmareFuel cannibal horses]].
* HiddenDepths: Disgusting knowledge of Animal facts? Interest in the odd and frightening? Drawing {{Fan Service}}-y and slightly perverted images? Check, the side of Eli people tend to see. A surprisingly detailed three part series based around the HowTo of Writing and one on horror, with instructions on how to do them properly? Helps Woolie become a {{Film/Predator}} through fully leveled Mad Warrior gear? Deep, highly intelligent and honest monologues that dip into the human condition and what it means to be a person? Check, the side of Eli displayed though Let's Gripe, Let's Plague, and Tri-Fusion Videos.
* HillbillyHorrors: The Best Friends jokingly invoke this trope most times they mention him, usually throwing in some reference to The Yellow King cult in ''Series/TrueDetective'' (despite Plague living in Kentucky rather than Louisiana).
* JumpScare: [[spoiler: An amusing side effect of some latency issues during his DarkSoulsII invasion had him apparently {{Flash Step}}ing directly into the camera for a second]].
* KindHeartedCatLover: Eli apparently loves cats, as almost all of his videos feature a link (sometimes hidden, sometimes overt) to a cute cat video.
** Has discussed that he is recently bottle feeding a baby kitten. Cat Lover Confirmed.
* LonersAreFreaks: Mentions never having had many friends as a child, as other kids found him weird and creepy.
* NightmareFetishist: To the point of writing and animating a three-part series on the nature of horror fiction.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: For a long time until he let his real name (Eli) slip. Although he's still almost always just referred to as Plague.
* PerpetualFrowner: To the point that he claims to be unable to physically smile.
* PhraseCatcher: "[[TheGadfly Fucking]] [[TooMuchInformation Plague]]"
* PrematurelyBald: Was thought to be this until he revealed on a stream with Pat and GermanSpy that he actually shaves his head. The revelation of this causes Pat to temporarily lose his mind.
* LazyArtist: He claims to be this.
* LongLostRelative: Pat once joked that he and Plague were actually twins seperated at birth after Matt & Woolie noted their similarities in the WWE'13 vid (bald, bearded, angry and red-headed (although Plague's eventually darkened into brown)).
* TheSociopath: Subverted, the Best Friends just call him one, as a joke of course.
* SurrealHumor: Often has this in his animations.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's 33, but looks grizzled and balding enough that Pat joked on the Nuzlocke stream (Plague's birthday) that he had just turned 45.

!!Cranky Construct
A relatively new fanimator for the Best Friends and a member of the supposed [[PsychoRangers Ustabiaz]], where he's their version of Liam.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AnimalMotifs: A black and red bear. He even wears an animal onesie (kigurumi) of it.
* AscendedFanboy: [[RuleOfThree For the third time]], like 2Snacks & Plague Cranky only did fanimations for the Best Friends on his own time before being commissioned by them. His initial contribution was the intro for the Pokemon Leafgreen Nuzlocke; fittingly, his very first TBFP fanimation revolved around [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman a podcast conversation about eating Pokemon]]. He recently flew up to not only meet the guys at Montreal Comic Con 2015, but also participate in some of their videos alongside them, with Matt even having him stay over at his place for the few days he was there.
* Expy: His Ustabiaz persona at magfest as shade of Wrestling/BrayWyatt, with being referred as a god by takahata and that while Liam love his waifu he crafts waifu.
* PuniPlush: He draws his characters in this way.

!!Indonesian Bob
A mildly infamous fan artist known for his... [[DerangedAnimation unique]] art style and his taste for the weird.
* DerangedAnimation
* NonindicativeName: Not actually Indonesian apparently.
* PhraseCatcher: "Bob! Draw that!" and variations thereof whenever someone describes something suitably bizarre.
* {{Otaku}}


[[folder: Zaibatsu Wrestling Federation]]

->[[AStormIsComing Can you feel the storm?! It's coming...]]

Zubaz, AKA "The Baz", was a scrapped character concept from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''. Born under a blood red moon, little is known about this mysterious warrior, but heaven help those who dare to challenge him...
* AscendedExtra: While he was originally just one of several rejected designs spotlighted in the first episode of ''Fighterpedia'', he went on to be referenced in every episode of the show, as well as make cameos in other videos like ''Super Best Friends Brawl'' and ''Two Best Friends Funtime Adventures''. Now he's actually going on to make appearances in multiple video games the Best Friends have backed via crowdfunding, including playable appearances in ''VideoGame/{{Divekick}}'' and ''VideoGame/KaijuCombat'', and as a special boss in ''VideoGame/ShovelKnight'' and ''Pocket Rumble'', as well as becoming a member of the VideoGameChampionshipWrestling roster.
* {{Badass}}: Subverted, even Woolie calls him garbage.
* BigBad: Is set up as this during the Zaibatsu Live Pay-Per-View, as the leader of the {{Heel}} Stable "The Order of the Storm Feelers."
* DropTheHammer: In his fight with Rage in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'', Zubaz wields the Storm Hammer as his Weapon Style.
* HumongousMecha: The basis for one in ''VideoGame/KaijuCombat''.
* MultipleChoicePast: Since much of him is being made up as the best friends go, he may be anything from a storm god to a wrestler to an ex-luchador and anything in between.
** We can kind of infer his past, assuming that jokes that are made and his appearances as custom characters are "canon". After being rejected, he became a luchador, but was dishonored in a two-on-one match. He now seems to be determined to become the best at any sporting event or game that will let him in, although his primary job seems to be a [[ProfessionalWrestling wrestler]].
* ShockAndAwe: Is often portrayed with electric powers. They don't call him ''The Storm'' for nothing.
* SmallNameBigEgo: According to Woolie, one of his main traits is that he thinks he's a cool badass, but is actually pretty garbage. This is [[{{Foil}} directly contrasted]] with Rage, who is a legitimate badass, but doesn't necessarily care about his own hype.
* SoreLoser: He doesn't take rejection well in most of his appearances.
* WhipItGood: Never seen without his rope whip in hand.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] In the WWE '13 Brawl, the Best Friends claim he's wrestling to earn money to build his Mecha for ''VideoGame/KaijuCombat''.

!!Rage of Africa
[[caption-width-right:250:He doesn't need to look at the watch because the time of the day is always ARMAGEDDON!]]

--> ''"Once upon a time there was a [[ScaryBlackMan big black man.]] He was '''REALLY''' angry."''

An original character first invented by Woolie's brother, now given life and form in Matt and Woolie's ''[[VideoGame/DefJamSeries Def Jam: Fight for NY]]'' playthrough. He's gone on to appear in several episodes, particularly in games that feature a character-creation system.

Rage is a timeless embodiment of what it truly means to be black: [[ScaryBlackMan Picking fights and being angry at everything, all the time]]. He exists only to prove his strength and destroy all who dare challenge him.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Of [[ScaryBlackMan Scary Black Men]] and UnstoppableRage according to Woolie.
* AlwaysABiggerFish: The ''Super Best Friends Boxing'' opening has Zubaz destroy all four of the Best Friends with one punch, then Rage in turn beats Zubaz just as quickly.
* ArchEnemy: [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy Bless]]. [[spoiler:[[PostFinalBoss It served as the final battle after defeating]] [[Music/SnoopDogg Crow.]]]] Though Comp is also something of a rival.
* {{Asexuality}}: Romance and sex are things Rage just doesn't understand.
--> '''Carmen Electra:''' Now let's get home and find out how much energy you've got left...
--> '''Woolie, as Rage:''' [[TheComicallySerious Teach me those techniques, they appeared powerful.]]
--> '''Matt:''' The girl's just trying to kiss him and he's like, "What attack is this?"
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: In ''[[VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell]]'' Rage has become the God-Emperor of the Universe.
* '''''{{Badass}}'''''
* BaldOfEvil
--> '''Woolie:''' He is BALD! He is [[HeroicBuild BIG]] and [[ScaryBlackMan BLACK]] and [[BaldOfAwesome BALD!!!]]
** BlondGuysAreEvil[=/=]DarkSkinnedBlond: After defeating Crow, Shin Rage got himself some blonde dreads.
* BigGood: Astonishingly, he is this during the Zaibatsu Live Pay-Per-View, seeking to undo the reign of terror inspired by Zubaz and his Order of the Storm Feelers. He is also the founder of the {{Face}} Stable "Rage World Order."
* TheBerserker
* BloodKnight: He cares not about money or fame, only to be the strongest.
* BornAsAnAdult: According to Woolie he "Crawled out of a mountain somewhere".
* CatchPhrase: Of all the in-game victory phrases, he tends to repeat the "freight train" line the most.
--> '''Rage:''' That freight train that hit you? That was ''me!''
** He would also like you to shine his shoes, [[LogicBomb even though]] [[DoesNotLikeShoes he never wears any]].
* ChainedByFashion: [[RobotMe Ragebot]] in ''Real Steel''.
* CombatPragmatist: Bottles? Lead pipes? Sledgehammers? Everything's fair game to Rage. That said, he still prefers to settle things with his bare hands.
* TheComicallySerious: Rage lives only to be angry and destroy others and simply cannot understand anything else, so his attempts to comprehend things such as flirting, money, rap music and even basic human emotions are all hilarious.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Shoes are for ''the weak''.
** [[CatchPhrase He'd still like you to shine them for him]] [[BadAss after he destroys you, though.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: As an ancient physical manifestation of anger and hatred, Rage is incapable of understanding concepts like "love" and "mercy".
* ExpansionPackPast: Every single Def Jam video adds more "facts" to Rage's feats of strength, even when they contradict his established characterization.
* FormerlyFat: He was "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Fat Rage]]" in his Backyard Wrestling days.
* GutturalGrowler: Rage has one hell of a growling voice.
* GoldenSuperMode: ''Shin Rage''. He not only has his pants turn red with the blood of his enemies, but he also manages to spontaneously grow golden dreads.
* {{Hell}}: The ''Ready 2 Rumble'' video lists his hometown as Hell[[spoiler:, Missouri[[labelnote:*]]Or Michigan, depending on if you go by what Woolie said or the abbreviation he put down (MI).[[/labelnote]]]].
* HumanoidAbomination
* MonochromaticEyes: He's supposed to have pure white, [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing eyes]] but the Def Jam character creator could only manage [[IcyBlueEyes a very pale blue]]. It manages to have a similar effect, though. [[http://youtu.be/Lry0SYYkvas?t=12m40s He manages to give one hell of a]] KubrickStare.
** RedEyesTakeWarning: In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon''.
* MythologyGag: Rage was actually mentioned almost 2 years before the Def Jam playthrough, when Matt casually brought him up to Pat in a playthrough as "this character Woolie's brother made for every fighting game".
* NoIndoorVoice: Especially in Matt and Woolie's "impressions" of him.
* PermaStubble: Rage has a barely-noticeable 5 o'clock shadow.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His black kung-fu pants and red belt combined with his role as a ScaryBlackMan call this trope to mind. [[RobotMe Ragebot]] is a more obvious example, looking like something built by [[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance Desperado Enforcement]].
** As "Shin Rage", the color scheme is inverted, giving him blood red gloves and pants with a black belt.
* RobotMe: After the failure of [[JokeCharacter Budmanbot]] in ''Real Steel'', Matt and Woolie instead create a robot based on Rage. They later decide that Ragebot ''is'' Rage, having converted himself into a KillerRobot so he could destroy his enemies more efficiently.
--> '''Matt:''' Rage was like, "I'm not beating up enough people; I need to turn myself into a robot!"
* ScaryBlackMan: The better part of his gimmick in a nutshell.
* ScreamingWarrior: Particularly when he's about to use his LimitBreak.
* TattooedCrook: Over time he gains an impressive display of tribal tattoos. As "Shin Rage", his body is almost completely covered in them.
* TimeAbyss: His approximate age is somewhere in the range of 'forever'.
* UnskilledButStrong: While Rage is certainly capable of more complex or advanced techniques, he prefers to just throw his strength ([[PunchedAcrossTheRoom and opponent]]) around and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown brutalize the enemy until they can't move.]]
* UnstoppableRage: His namesake.
* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: Rage is quite eager to express his superiority over any and all defeated foes.
* VillainProtagonist: Considering he managed to be the only person strong enough to take on Crow's regime.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Shirts are for ''the weak''.
* WhatIsThisFeeling: Nothing really seems to bother Rage except for two scenes: One where Blaze rips off his bling (Which makes him understand the feeling of betrayal) and when he rescued Carmen Electra [[spoiler:from the fire]] (Which makes him understand compassion).
* WorthyOpponent: The first person to ever give him pause was Music/IceT. [[DefeatEqualsFriendship The two of them later teamed up for a tag tournament.]]
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Wrestling moves are his preferred style of hand-to-hand combat.
** Rage's Go-To is typically a strong grapple. Preferably a Powerbomb.

!!Best-Frienderation X (El Woolio, Cactus Pat, The Punishment, & [=UnCenable=])
The wrestling personas for the Zaibatsu, first shown off during Rustlemania 2. Woolie is El Woolio, Pat is Cactus Pat, Matt is The Punishment, and Liam is [=UnCenable.=]
* ArchEnemy: The LetsPlay/YoVideogames World Order is set up like this.
* ButtMonkey: Cactus Pat and [=UnCenable=] are this during their backstage brawl against El Woolio and Zach The Cat, although [[RunningGag they did manage to get some good hits in, though]]. [=UnCenable=] also serves as this when he takes a four way ass-pounding from the Order of the Storm Feelers at the start of the Pay-Per-View.
* DirtyCoward: The Punishment is definitely this, considering he bailed on his match with Rage before a single punch was thrown. He's this despite being billed as the go-to enforcer for the Order of the Storm Feelers.
* {{Expy}}: All of them are a rip-off of someone or something.
** El Woolio is pretty transparently inspired by Wrestling/ReyMysterio, with Wrestling/RandyOrton's Legend Killer pose and a dash of The Predator thrown in.
** Cactus Pat is a straight up knock-off of Wrestling/MickFoley.
** The Punishment is ComicBook/ThePunisher, and he wears the logo of [[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Immortan Joe]] as a necklace.
** Three guesses for who Un[[Wrestling/JohnCena Cena]]ble is, first two don't count.
* FiveBadBand: The Order of the Storm Feelers
** BigBad: Zubaz
** TheDragon: El Woolio
** TheEvilGenius: Jerry the Predator
** TheBrute: The Shockmaster and The Punishment
** TheDarkChick: Fem!Baz
** TeamPet: Zach
* TheUnintelligible: The only time El Woolio speaks, his voice is interpreted as a Predator-like clicking sound.

[[folder: Other Characters]]

!!Chewie & Fuckface (ft. The Shit King & Liam)
The shock jock radio host personas of the Zaibatsu. Woolie is Chewie, the main MC; Pat is Fuckface, co-host to Chewie; Matt is The Shit King, patriarch of the Shit Royal Family and Lord of Shit Keep; and Liam is [[AsHimself Liam]].

Originally conceived after a fan misnamed Matt & Pat after seeing them at a convention (calling them Chewie and Matt respectively), it eventually evolved into a running joke that if their LP business ever flops they could go into radio hosting as the Chewie & Fuckface Show. They made their official debut in the intro for Episode 100 of the Friendcast.
* {{Corpsing}}: Copious amounts happen in their Friendcast appearance, especially from Liam and The Shit King.
--> '''Liam:''' ''Oh my GOD, what are we doing with our lives!?''
--> '''The Shit King:''' ''Man... This is a MESS!''
* IconicItem: You can kill him dead, but you will ''NEVER'' take Chewie's soundboard.

!!Jerry the Predator
