Characters: Versus
aka: Super Mario Sunshine Versus
This page is for the Let's Play series. The film does not have a page as of yet.

Attacking Tucans (Tyler)

The creator of the versus series, and usually the editor. He tends to be very sexual and inappropriate with his commentary to a hilarious degree, particularly by how casually he makes jokes of the sort. So far, he appeared in all of the Versus LPs.

  • Ass Shove: A frequent part of his comedy.
  • Bad Liar: He invokes this often for humour purposes. However, when he actually tries to lie to Josh, he usually pulls it off.
  • Berserk Button: Donna calling the stars "Shines" annoys him.
  • Big "NO!" / Big "YES!": Frequently when he fails or succeeds. Sometimes he'll let one off just because Josh shouts out the opposite.
  • Butt Monkey: Especially in Galaxy Versus.
    • The guy has also lost the first four versus in a row, not counting one-offs.
  • Camp Straight
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Exemplified in Luigi's Mansion Versus episode 6, when he goes on a long string of talking about wanting to lie down and how candy corn and pixie sticks sound awesome right now... Then squees over finding a golden mouse, sucks it up and goes right back to his train of thought.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the giving end of this against Josh during Break the Targets of Super Smash Bros. Melee versus where he has 20 wins to Josh's 5
  • Despair Event Horizon: Parodied in Sunshine Versus.
    Tyler: I hate this project! I hate you! I hate Piantas! I hate their porn! I hate Vagisil! I hate Jesus Grandma! I hate...eating old men!
    • Played a bit more straight later on, when he dies literally right before getting the Shine Sprite in a level he had been having lots of trouble with. He ends up breaking down crying for a little bit.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despite trying to win and usually trying to screw with the other person so he can gain an edge, he'll still sometimes help them out if help is needed, or extend a video's length so they can finish up.
    • He also starts posting Content Warnings during Galaxy Versus after seeing how much swearing and such was present in Sunshine Versus.
  • Got Me Doing It: He's started calling stars "shines" because of Donna.
  • Heroic BSOD: See Despair Event Horizon above.
  • Hidden Depths: He makes some awesome music, such as the intro music for Sunshine Versus and Galaxy Versus.
    • Also, as revealed in Luigi's Mansion Versus, he has an IQ of 142, which is genius level.
  • Large Ham
  • Malaproper: Sometimes done jokingly, like when he calls the anteroom "the anteater room". Other times he really does keep saying it wrong, like saying "Luigi Mansions" instead of "Luigi's Mansion".
  • Man Child: He's likely one of the most immature people you'll ever meet. He seems to use his off-color commentary in place of anything intelligent.
  • Oh Crap: A lot. If it's a big one, usually followed by a Big "NO!" or Atomic F-Bomb.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Zig-zagged. The people he races against call him Tyler, but he always introduces himself as AttackingTucans.
  • Overprotective Dad: A rare non-dating example; his dad is so overprotective that he forbids Tyler from visiting Donna during the summer, even though Tyler had already paid a bunch of money for the plane ticket, forcing him to pay an extra $200 for a different ticket. All of this was just because he didn't want Tyler meeting up with someone he only knew on the Internet. He even threatened to stop paying for Tyler's car insurance and college if he went.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Goddammit, Tyler", most often said by Josh to him.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Most noticeable in Galaxy Versus, in which he often manages to out-girly Donnabellez.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Always red.
  • Sir Swearsalot
  • Toilet Humour: Regularly.
  • Totally Radical: Uses this way of speaking sometimes, particularly his constant usage of the word "totally" (occasionally shortened to "totes").
  • Troll: During Sunshine, he flips Josh's screen upside-down in editing for a few minutes. Then in part 5 of Galaxy, not only does he get away with losing fewer star bits from a Bit Blowout, he previously had Donna do a double Bit Blowout.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: According to episode 10 of Galaxy, anyway.
    • Later in episode 24(?) he reveals that he once won a prize for being best Christian Boy Scout in the state of Missouri.
      Tyler: ...WHAT WENT WRONG?!
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: When it seemed like he was going to win 64 versus, along with winning his first versus ever, he died near the end of the final red coin mission. Josh caught up, and won the versus because of that.

JoshJepson

The first person Tyler raced against, and his usual opponent. Co-founder of the versus series. First appeared in Sunshine Versus and Luigi's Mansion Versus, latter of which he hosted and edited. His commentary is a bit like Tyler's, likely due to being around him, but not nearly as bad and he is usually the more down-to-earth of the two.

  • Alliterative Name
  • Aw Look They Really Are Friends: Mentions how much fun he had doing Sunshine Versus with Tyler at the end of the project, despite the constant bickering, yelling, and fighting the two did throughout the whole thing.
  • Berserk Button: Insulting his grandma seems to be one.
    • He also got pissed and started cussing at his dad when he came in and interrupted their recording. Yes, cussing at his dad.
    Josh: (to his dad) Close the door, you fucker!
  • Butt Monkey: Throughout most of Sunshine Versus at the hands of Tyler. And Galaxy, despite not being there involved.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of this in both Break the Targets of Super Smash Bros Melee versus, and Donkey Kong Country Moose. The latter Tyler mocks him for in The Stinger.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In-universe; his reaction to Tyler's "funny" story about these dogs attacking another dog.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Though he curses a lot, he avoids saying a certain word.
  • Ha Ha Ha No: During the game of twenty questions with Tyler, he does this a lot.
  • Heroic BSOD: Has them quite a bit, when it's not a raging freakout.
  • Hope Spot: Had one in the Ocarina of Time finale, making his frustration at losing even worse.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: Played for Laughs; he claims to be "eating old men" in an episode of Sunshine Versus during a game of Bop.
    Josh: The first verb I thought of was "eating" and I was right next to an old man.
  • Insistent Terminology: What becomes a Running Gag:
    Josh: I don't listen to shitty music.
  • Large Ham: "NO! BANANAS! BANAAAANAAAS! MY BANANAS!"
  • Line-of-Sight Name: How he created his infamous "eating old men" phrase, at least for the "old men" part.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: To Tyler, quite a bit.
  • Only Sane Man
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Tyler's red, red to Stephen's blue.
  • Sir Swearsalot: Less than Tyler, but still enough to qualify for this trope.
  • Sore Loser: He's friendly and agreeable most of the time, but when he's noticeably falling behind, his temper and vocabulary reflect it. Tyler lampshades this during the Spirit Temple episodes of Ocarina of Time Versus.
    Josh: You know what my favourite part of a Versus is? NOT! FUCKING! LOSING!
  • Straight Man
  • Tempting Fate: Occasionally. In a rare case where it ended up helping, he says near the beginning of Sunshine Versus that he's going to suck, only to end up winning.
  • Unreliable Narrator: He makes use of lying to Tyler about his progress often, and more than Tyler does to him.

Donnabellez

The second person Tyler raced against, appearing in Super Mario Galaxy Versus. Usually on par with Tyler in terms of energy.

  • Alliterative Name: Her "team" is named Bellezbitches, or Bellez Bitches.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different
  • Bad Liar: She has trouble lying to Tyler, and can easily be seen through, though Tyler seems to usually believe her (albeit not without suspicion).
  • The Cameo: Appeared in the Cuckoo challenge of Tyler and Josh's community versus.
  • Catch Phrase: "SHINE!" when she gets a star.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Less than Tyler, but still there.
  • Genki Girl
  • Let's Players Cannot Do Math: When Tyler forces her to get rid of 500 Star Bits when she has 699, she does the math wrong and gets rid of 530 instead.
  • Ms. Fanservice: In the last episode of Galaxy versus, she ends up taking off both her pants and bra because of how hot her room is. And on top of that, she starts cheering upon getting the "shine".
    Tyler: You're exciting all the fanboys excited right now. They're all- You giving them all boners right now. God damn it Donna.
  • Never Say That Again: Her response to the nickname Donnaballz by Tyler.
  • Oh Crap: Upon realizing that, though she thought she cleared the surfing level, she actually died after completing it and had to redo it.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: While she is the blue to Tyler's red, she still is red generally.
  • Southern Belle
  • Troll: Uses her lifelines to do this to Tyler.
    • This also seems to be why she keeps saying "SHINE!"

Lucahjin

The third person Tyler raced against, appearing in Sonic Adventure 2 Versus. She's about as vulgar as Tyler. Her team is the 'Lucah Troopas.' At the time of writing, she has yet to have a proper appearance on the Versus channel.

NintendoCapriSun

The fourth person Tyler raced against, appearing in Mega Man Versus. Is one of the three main members of The Runaway Guys, and Tyler's let's play inspiration.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Stays ahead of Tyler for pretty much all of Mega Man versus.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the blue oni to Tyler, and is also the blue oni in comparison to the other let's players Tyler raced against.

Stephen Plays

The second person Josh raced against, appearing in Donkey Kong Country MOOSE

  • Always Someone Better: Surpasses Tyler's famous height, as brought up in Super Monkey Ball versus.
  • Bad Liar: When he tries to convince Josh that he was still doing Barrel Cannon Canyon and was messing up in it when he already finished the level.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Beat Josh in Donkey Kong Country MOOSE without losing a single level.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue oni to Josh's red oni.

The Completionist

The third person Josh raced against, appearing in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Versus. His team is 'Team Beardman'.

  • Badass Beard: Josh jokingly says that Jirards beard is basically a god.
  • Berserk Button: According to him, saying his name as 'Jared' is this for him.
  • Graceful Loser: Claims that he'll be fine if Josh wins the versus, and even says that he's rooting for the Jep Squad (though he still tries his best)
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue oni to Josh's red oni.
