Orjan Aarvik (Teutron)A Norwegian artist for the Yogscast that serves as lead artist. Designed many of the avatars for the Yogscast to begin with, but this is no longer his main role.
- The Comically Serious: Compared to many other members of the Yogscast, Teutron is less of an outright clown.
Sam GibbsSam Gibbs is an audio engineer at Yogtowers and the essential "apprentice" of Sparkles*.
- Deadpan Snarker: While he's a nice guy and rarely onscreen, a good eighty per cent of what comes out his mouth is sarcasm.
- The Gadfly: He ended up trolling Parv by making it look like he had died, spawning the now infamous meme.
- Gentle Giant: He's nearly as tall as Strippin, but is a very mellow individual.
- Mission Control: Essentially serves as this for the livestreams.
- Passing the Torch: Sparkles* taught him to be his successor at Yogtowers, a task Sam has taken to like a duck to water.
- The Quiet One: Justified for the most part when the livestreams are happening, since his job is to keep things running while the others take the spotlight.
- The Sixth Ranger: While for the most part he serves as the audio engineer for Yogtowers, he essentially serves as this to the Dream Team, joining in for rounds of Just Dance or Super Smash Bros.. He was also on the team that fought against Lewis, Sjin and Hat Films for Lucky Block.
Tom Clark/ AngorTom Clark, aka Angor, is a producer for the Yogscast. While not owning his own channel, he does join the content creators for a number of videos.
- Ascended Extra: While he doesn't have a channel at the time of writing, Tom has appeared in a surprisingly large number of gaming videos and gained a relatively large fanbase for it. He also played the bear in the Don't Starve challenge and served as Mission Control for "Lucky Walls".
- Badass: In Trouble In Terrorist Town, Tom is downright lethal.
- Badass Beard: Has a spectacular beard in real life.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Tom is eerily good in TTT at causing the innocent terrorists to suspect each other and punish the wrong person.
- Deadpan Snarker: Tom's laid-back attitude means that his humour is more subtle than the other players.
- Mission Control: Served as the "referee" for "Lucky Walls", a role that usually goes to Ridgedog.
- One Steve Limit: Averted. Not only are there four Toms in the Yogscast, but Sparkles* has a real name that is precisely one letter off. This has led to fan confusion.
- The Quiet One: Played with. Tom talks as much as most people seem to. The difference is that he doesn't scream his head off constantly, whereas the others do.
Yogscast IRL- Not working at Yogtowers
Chris Lovasz (Sips)Now has his own page.
Joakim Hellstrand (Rythian)Now has his own page.
Liam MacKay (Nilesy)
Joined the Yogscast YouTube family in July 2012. Like In The Little Wood above, he had his own YouTube channel before he joined the Yogscast family.
- Adorkable: Just listen to that ending song!
- Big Damn Heroes: When Kim, Hannah and Simon's stream went down, Nilesy took over and managed to raise over $12,000 in about five minutes.
- Butt Monkey / The Chew Toy: Nothing seems to go right for Nilesy in Tekkit.Nilesy: You win some, you lose some - or if you're Nilesy, you win some and lose them all! (forced laughter)
- Chekhov's Skill:
- Mentions from time to time that his day job is working in a call center. This actually comes in handy when he plays I Get This Call Every Day, which is about working in a call center. Nilesy becomes possibly the first Lets Player on Youtube to ace it on his first try. For comparison, when Simon and Lewis try it, Simon ends up ragequitting after being fired three times, leaving Lewis to awkwardly end the video by himself.
- His call center experience also made him much more competent at Papers, Please than Lewis and Simon's, and Sips' attempts.
- Distressed Dude: With Hannah as the Action Girl in their Tekkit Let's Play.
- Identical Stranger: Has been compared in terms of looks to both Lewis and Snape.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: He loves his cat, and will even pause a Let's Play to pet it.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: His reaction to quite a few of the games he plays.
- Took a Level in Badass:
- In his video of Haunt, he displays no signs of fear like he did in any of the previous horror games he played, instead sounding annoyed at the monster. There are a couple of moments where he actually charges at the monster!
- His learning of the art of Thaumcraft is gradually developing into this, too.
Zoey ProasheckNow has her own page.
Steven Goates (Ridgedog)
The creation manager and producer for the Yogscast. Joined the team January 2012. He is also the leader of The Voxel Box.
- Badass: Is one of the more skilled members of the Yogscast.
- Badass Beard: Has one in real life.
- Badass Longcoat: His Minecraft avatar sports an elegant one. He once dressed up as said avatar too.
- Big Bad / Final Boss: For Lewis, Simon and Duncan in Voltz.
- Cheaters Never Prosper: In Voltz, he spawns in a lot of things that he logically should not be able to have in the game, even with the mods installed. Later, his base gets destroyed and Simon, Lewis and Duncan steal a lot of his loot, essentially rendering him a nonentity.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: As a cursory glance at his youtube page will reveal, he seems a bit nutty.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: In Voltz, he used two missiles to attack Lewis and co, leaving a gap between the two to force them to spend longer repairing. Then he promptly ripped them to shreds with a ray gun, and when they tried entering his base, after dealing with the sheer amount of auto-turrets, they triggered a booby trap designed to destroy his base, deny them anything valuable and take them down in the process. It didn't quite work owing to pure luck, but it's still brilliantly executed.
- For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself: Turns up to Minecon 2013 wearing his full Minecraft costume. Along with his girlfriend, in similar costume. Additional badass must be implied as Minecon was in Florida that year and it was really warm.
- Game Master: In most of the Yogscast PvP matches.
- Hidden Villain: Seems to become one in Voltz. Lewis, Duncan and Simon were targeting Sips to begin with, believing him to be the enemy. However instead Ridge was the first to attack, sending two missiles after their base and doing extremely well.
- Hyper Competent Sidekick: Whenever he teams up with Sips and Sjin.
- Mad Scientist: So much so that Yoglabs is described as being more moral than him, in Voltz.
- More Dakka: His Voltz base is filled with auto-turrets.
- Phrase Catcher: "A wild Ridgedog appears!"
- Physical God: A popular fan theory claims that he is this in the Minecraft Series.
- The Trickster: Sometimes implements his godly powers to mess with other players, such as when he uses invisibility to troll Nilesy and Panda in The Walls.
- Troll: Particularly in Voltz.
Sam Thorne (Strippin)Now has his own page.
John Cochrane (HybridPanda)
A former Machinima director who joined the Yogscast in January 2013, Panda is a frequent co-op partner of Nilesy's and makes several Let's Play series of his own.
- Adorkable: Panda is a friendly, decent and dorky person.
- Butt Monkey: Often ends up the butt of many jokes.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He won the first Skyblock War episode.
- Cruel Player-Character God: In the Sims. Two words: Baby cave.
- Do Not Go Gentle: Of a sort. When it became apparent he was going to lose in his playthrough of XCOM: Enemy Within, he decided to attack the EXALT base using his few remaining squaddies. It goes as well as one would expect.
- General Failure: His XCOM playthrough is both marvellous and painful to behold.
- Giving the Sword to a Noob: One XCOM video has him give his only psi-armor, an armor that increases a psionic soldier's abilities as well as being the only armor capable of moving the plot to the final mission, to Brain Shooter, a low level sniper with only a basic Psi-attack, as opposed to Domon8, a fully specialized psionic Col. Heavy. Overlaps with General Failure, as he had no idea what caused the game to progress.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Along with So Totally Toby, he is perhaps one of the least threatening drug runners ever.
- Na´ve Newcomer: Joins Kim in being one of the last Yogscast members to join the Yogcraft server, although he has played it somewhat more regularly than she did, and so isn't entirely lost.
Dave Bagnall (DaveChaos)A long-time friend of the group who joined them officially in July 2013.
- Adventurer Outfit: His Minecraft skin is obviously based off Indiana Jones (he even confirmed this during a Q and A at a gaming festival).
- Companion Cube: Wilson in the Castaway and Survival Island playthroughs is this to Dave.
- The Quiet One: When he joined the Prop Hunt tournament on Sips' channel, he didn't say as much compared to the others. Granted, he was on with people like Sjin and Simon.
- Troll: Trolled Simon and Lewis in the Yoglympics map when he put a button labelled to go up into the Dodgit event that actually threw Simon and Lewis down into a pit. He then proceeded to try and blow up the winner's podium with Lewis and Simon on it after his "special message" on the wall from the map makers (BOOM!), but just missed them and had to flee so Simon wouldn't 'spleef' him to death.
Yohi, Lover of WeedA guild-mate of Simon and Lewis, he has appeared in several episodes of The YoGPoD.
- Out of Focus: Compare the early days when Yohi used to appear in the Yogpod, and now rarely appears at all.
ZylusA member of the Yogscast that was a long-time friend for many years, before finally joining in July 2013.
- Catch Phrase: Sup guysh, itsh Zylush here...
- Refusal of the Call: He rejected the initial offer to join the Yogscast on the grounds that he was too young. He eventually joined when older.
Keith Steinbach (BebopVox)A prominent youtuber who runs The Minecraft Monday Show, BebopVox officially joined the Yogscast in January 2014. He is a former crew chief of the United States Air Force, having recently left to make videos full-time.
Ted (Pyrion Flax)A fellow Polaris member that joined the Yogscast in 2014.
- Badass: Pyrion made his debut in Civ by giving Lewis and the others a run for their money, so much so that they immediately forgot about Lewis and teamed up against him! Lewis was the one who won but only because he extended his trickery to the other players so that they ganged up on Pyrion first, destroying him first. Lewis only managed to get up to a significant level and destroy the others only when Pyrion was gone.
- Badass Beard: Pyrion makes up for his baldness by growing out his beard.
- Bald of Awesome: Pyrion isn't ashamed of being bald in the slightest, although amusingly his Yogscast avatar covers up his baldness with a crown.
- Cowboy Cop: Pyrion has a reputation in Trouble In Terrorist Town for shooting people without reason as the detective.
- Deadpan Snarker: Around the others during Civ. He points out the mentality of the others when they start complaining about Pyrion dominating the game, even though they'd tried getting him to do that so Lewis wouldn't win.
- The Dreaded: In Civ. When you can be badass enough to give the resident chessmaster an excuse to put you in his sights first, you indeed count.
- Hypocritical Humour: As the detective in Trouble In Terrorist Town, Pyrion has a tendency to RDM a lot of innocent players. He later gets angry when Sjin shoots him for no reason and asks what kind of detective would do that.Sjin: The Pyrion kind.
- Only Sane Man: See Deadpan Snarker.
FyreUKFyreUK is the youtube channel of Matthew Needler and Phil Southam (more commonly known as Matt and Phil), co-founders of the Minecraft build team Fyre. Whilst their channel maintains a focus on Minecraft timelapse builds, they have also released a number of Let's Play series, and prior to joining the Yogscast created the adventure map for Hat Films' series An Epic Hatventure.
There are many individuals currently playing on the Yogscast Complete Official Server (and other adventures) who, while not considered paid members of the Yogscast, do work on the servers or as characters / contributors for other members series'.up a rather disturbing notch by focussing on the recreation of a horror antagonist. See his own page for details.
Paprika SuHelps Kirin Dave out in his Minecraft series.
- Beware the Quiet Ones: Kirin Dave notes that you do not want to see Su when she's angry...
- Only Sane Man: Tends to behave more rationally than the others.
BenjiStrippin's friend and associate in Rail Bros and Cornerstone. Has his own channel which he updates semi-regularly.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's a fairly decent Minecraft player when push comes to shove.
- Fail O'Suckyname: His Minecraft name was "Benjizm" for a while, leading to endless jokes about semen. He eventually renamed himself "King Bendrick".
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: After Duncan and Sjin's Tekkit War, he took a serious blow to the head and forgot everything he knew about RailCraft. Strippin then had to teach him it again.
- Never Live It Down: In-Universe, seemingly nobody refers to him by his new name "King Bendrick", instead referring to him as "Benjizm".
- Snark-to-Snark Combat: Typically snarks with Strippin.
- Too Dumb to Live: After proposing the treehouse, guess who is the first to fall off?
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Strippin.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: His reasons for proposing a treehouse as a base were that it would be harder to assault, mobs could not attack it as easily and that it was scenic. While these were all valid points, he failed to consider his habit of falling to his death.
Fiona RichesZoey's girlfriend and regular collaborator.
- Lady Swears A Lot: Compared to Zoey, who occasionally has to bleep her out when she lets one slip. When Zoey lifts the swearing ban during their Christmas late night stream, Fiona just lets them fly.
- Nice Girl: Incredibly polite whenever we see her.
DaltosDaltos, real name Nicholas Buccino, is a friend of the Yogscast and Zylus who lives in America. Mostly appearing in Zylus' series, he also appeared during the Trouble In Terrorist Town livestream.
Dead Workers PartyDead Workers Party is the former title of duo Brent Copeland and Eric Fullerton, who have since rebranded to YOGSCAST Brent & Eric. They are most famously known as creators and co-hosts of The Shaft podcast. It was announced that they joined the Yogscast in February 2014, but they left the group on good terms in September due to real-life issues.
Minecraft/Shadow of IsraphelFor characters associated with Shadow of Israphel, go here.
- Affably Evil: None of them really seem that rude or unpleasant.
- Mad Scientist: Most of the science team are shown to have varying quirks, but Dr Srivaramen really takes the cake.
- Punch Clock Villain: Odds are that if they aren't in the science team, they're this.
- Token Good Teammate: Doctor Testificate M.D and Prof Brightmeer are this for the science team.
- Villain Protagonist: Applies to most of them.
Doctor Testificate, M.D.Formerly a character belonging to the Eden project map, he was later promoted to the Yoglabs team.
- Ascended Extra: Initially just another character created by somebody who made an adventure map, he has since become a part of Yoglabs.
- Badass Bookworm: Confirmed when he survives the zombie onslaught at Yoglabs.
- Badass Longcoat: Part of his skin.
- Butt Monkey / The Chew Toy: Bad things often happen to him. In the adventure map that Lewis and Simon took his character from he was blown up "accidentally" by Simon, then in Yoglabs he got locked in the medbay with the Little Maids, was cut up partially and shot, then had his blood taken for cloning at which point his clone was murdered.
- Disproportionate Retribution: He ends up being shot nonfatally by Lewis for not renewing his combat license.
- Mission Control: "Acts" as this for Simon and Lewis during their taking back of Yoglabs.
- Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Not so much in the adventure map that he first appears in, but in Yoglabs this trope is in full effect, given how the setting basically has him working with the bad guys. We don't see him doing anything bad, however.
- They Killed Kenny / Death Is Cheap: He keeps coming back despite being maimed constantly and wounded fatally more than once. It's implied that the versions of him that die are clones.
- You Have Failed Me: Lewis and Dr. Srivaramen cut him up and turn some of his body parts into zombies, then Lewis shoots him for not renewing his combat record. He gets better.
Dr. SrivaramenPart of the Yoglabs team, and notably much more off the rails than Doctor Testificate M.D.
- Admiring the Abomination: He loves the mutants he creates, even though they're dangerous and rather weird.
- Affably Evil: Lewis describes him as a nice man, and he indeed comes across as a polite guy, but he's also a nutty mad scientist. After chopping up Doctor Testificate, he immediately does his best to see that he's nursed back to health.
- Ambiguously Brown: Discussed. While his name sounds Indian and Simon voices him with an Indian accent, Lewis isn't sure as to whether or not he comes from India or if he's a Native American.
- And Call Him George: Gives names to the mutants he creates.
- Axe Crazy: The guy is absolutely crazy. He helped Lewis chop up poor Doctor Testificate M.D and turn some of his body into zombies.
- Badass Bookworm: Survives a mutant enderman onslaught.
- Badass Longcoat: A labcoat covered in blood, which is part of his skin.
- Badass Moustache: Part of his skin.
- Deadly Doctor: Given how he's in charge of genetic engineering and his labcoat is covered in blood, and that most of his experiments are extremely dangerous, he qualifies. See Axe Crazy for further details.
- He also offhandedly mentions that he lost his medical license, implying he was really bad at healing people.
- Intentional Engrish for Funny: "Hello sirs, it's very please to meet you!", which is also the first line he ever says.
- Mad Scientist: The guy makes Lewis' Yoglabs persona look sane.
- Would Hurt a Child: He feeds his pet zombie mutant testificate children.
Prof. BrightmeerA medical assistant at Yoglabs, who helps Simon during the "Bad Trip" episode.
- Cyborg: He appears to be one, having part of his face covered by metal plating.
- Everyone Has Standards: He's appalled by the effect the drugs have on Simon and what they make him do, muttering sympathetically about the Testificates that died.
- The Medic: His supposed position at Yoglabs.
- Shoot the Dog: Briefly proposed when Simon is tripping out, and Brightmeer suggests a Mercy Kill... by incineration. Mercifully, Lewis delays him for a while and Simon recovers.
Professor BixbyA member of Yoglabs staff, on their science team.
- Accidentally Accurate: In-Universe. He claims that Girlfriend Island is "a dangerous place to be" when it appears to be an island paradise, and it's quite clearly meant to be a lie to cover up where he's going. Then the basilisks attack...
- Affably Evil: A nice and grandfatherly scientist, who happens to be a literal grandfather... who happens to be working for Yoglabs (and is also a bit of a Covert Pervert).
- Bald of Evil: He's not that evil, but the trope still applies as he has no hair on his Minecraft skin.
- Blatant Lies: When found at Girlfriend Island, he claims he's doing "important science". Sure. That's totally not what Simon and Lewis were there to do.
- Cool Old Guy: He's quite a nice and funny guy.
- Covert Pervert: Simon and Lewis find him in "Girlfriend Island" being followed by dozens of girlfriends, under the excuse of doing dangerous research.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Bixby evidently has a large, extended family, and is very proud of his grandson for passing his GCSE exams.
- Evil Old Folks: Sort of. He's working for Yoglabs, a morally deficient place, although he isn't that evil himself.
- Improbable Weapon User: When the basilisks arrive, he pulls out a fishing rod. Lewis and Simon mock him for it.
- Naked People Are Funny: When Simon and Lewis find him during Girlfriend Island, they find he's almost completely nude.
Sergeant HerpA soldier in Yoglabs employ.
- Badass Mustache: He is an okay soldier with a good moustache.
- Bolivian Army Ending: Subverted. He gets dragged away by a horde of giant bugs, but manages to break free and escape.
- Butt Monkey: All his friends die from the bug attack, he gets hit with a stray grenade when Simon presses the wrong button, then he gets dragged off by a swarm of bugs.
- Cowardly Lion: He fights reasonably well, given what happened.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Loveble Coward traits aside, he does okay as a fighter.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: It's confirmed after his appearance that he's getting treated, both physically and mentally.
- Sole Survivor: On the attack on the Yoglabs Firebase, owing to several giant bugs swarming it. He almost gets killed again, but narrowly manages to escape.
VoskoboynikovA scientist in charge of drugs and medicines.
- Husky Russkie: Voiced with a Russian accent.
- Mad Scientist: Counts on the grounds of making hallucinogenics for no good reason.
BortA mutant zombie and formerly one of the main projects of Yoglabs, he now works part-time as a bouncer and doorman.
- Arc Villain: For a non-canon animated adventure.
- Death Is Cheap: He's died at least once before, but now seems to be alive again.
- The Dragon: Technically to Dr_Srivaramen, although he's done little fighting for him.
- Later, Gozencrantz and Rildernstern hire him as their chief muscle and bouncer, although he stays out of the action.
- Dumb Muscle: His intelligence has obviously taken a hit.
- Dumbass No More: That said, he was once even stupider and incapable of speech. He's obviously gotten brighter.
- Hulk Speak: Downplayed. He doesn't speak entirely like this, but he's not exactly eloquent.
- Mighty Glacier: Once he becomes a bouncer, he keeps his strength but appears to have slowed down a bit.
- Too Dumb to Fool: The reason that Gozencrantz and Rildernstern hire him as a bouncer to keep out intruders, since he won't be talked out of it.
Gozencrantz and RildensternThe joint heads of the cloning division.
- Arc Villain / Big Bad: For the series as a whole, given their efforts to take over Yoglabs and kill off everyone for real. With that said, they seem to be followed by something worse.
- Big Bad Duumvirate They work as a pair.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: The guys know how the respawn system works, and the plan inflicts quite a bit of damage.
- Genre Blind: With that said, Gozencratz is considerably more blind... choosing to go to the toilet and leave himself vulnerable, rather than go and aid Rildenstern. This gets him killed.
- Genre Savvy: Their plan being as dangerous as it was, they make sure to guard the door with something strong and Too Dumb to Fool. They didn't take into account the Soul Absorber mod, though.
- Kick the Dog: Rildenstern murders Simon's master clone and then tries doing the same to the others.
- Killed Off for Real: Both of them get taken down by Simon and Lewis, and given that their plans involved killing everyone's Master Clones, they probably had their own ones taken offline.
- Knight of Cerebus: Downplayed. Compared to Strawfingers, Skylord_Vitali or Israphel, these guys are downright hilarious, but their actions cause a rare dramatic and tragic ending to an episode and the stakes are raised significantly, even with the government's constant interference. To top that off, something even worse is implied to succeed them, if the twist ending is any clue.
- Large Ham: Gozencrantz's dialogue is read out this way.
- Mad Scientist: They're Yoglabs personnel, so it's practically a requirement.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Gozencrantz is far too hammy for his own good. Rildenstern, on the other hand, is a little smarter and more sane.
- Shout-Out to Shakespeare: To Rozencrantz and Gildenstern from Hamlet.
- The Starscream: They both seek to take over Yoglabs, although Rildenstern accepts that immediate control is unlikely.
- Take Over the World: Their ultimate goal, although Rildenstern accepts that it's not going to be so easy as Gozencrantz hopes.
- Too Dumb to Live: Yes, Gozencratz. You'd better go to that completely exposed toilet, after having just told the room your plans, rather than go with your partner in crime and get the plan done.
- Walking Spoiler: You can probably guess a lot about them from the sheer amount of spoilered text.
Lalnibal HectorA clone of Duncan being stored at Yoglabs. He did something to get locked up.
- Axe Crazy: According to Lewis, this is why he's been locked up.
- Evil Counterpart: Supposedly to Duncan / Lalna, as he apparently takes some of his traits Up to Eleven.
The GovernmentThe government of an unspecified nation (supposedly Minecraftia) that generally serve as the Hero Antagonist organisation to the Villain Protagonist Yoglabs company.
- Big Good / Bigger Bad: One of the two. On the one hand, they're the only organisation trying to take Yoglabs down. On the other hand, they only appear to have turned on them in the first place for being impractical with money. Either way, they don't appear themselves, instead sending in their mooks.
- Hero Antagonist: Given the nature of Yoglabs and the fact that they are explicitly stated to be evil, they come across as this.
StrawfingersAn animated and very malevolent scarecrow that appears in Sjin's "Feed the World" series. He is the primary antagonist, brought to life seemingly hundreds of years ago.
- Animate Inanimate Object: An animated scarecrow.
- Arch-Enemy: Given how he's the Big Bad for the series, Sjin has taken his presence very badly and made it a priority (admittedly not the highest one) to take him down.
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: He kidnapped Kim, took her to the Nether and fed her chicken (which Kim likes, not being a vegetarian), and then stole Sjin's textures.
- A Wizard Did It: Supposedly how he came to life in the first place.
- Bait the Dog: After helping Abel farm his crops, he murders his parents.
- Big Bad: For Sjin's series; any threats beforehand were either from mobs (which aren't actively malevolent) or from other players (who also aren't actively malevolent or very dangerous for that matter). Strawfingers is both actively malevolent and dangerous.
- Cerebus Retcon: A lot of Strawfingers' behaviour and nature was initially comedic, then we find out in Abel's flashback why he's like that, and it stops being funny.
- Combat Pragmatist: His strategy upon encountering Sjin in the Twilight Forest is to camp by a portal he had already used and then start shooting at him with a machine gun.
- Dark Is Evil: Hangs around in the Nether, builds with darker bricks, dressed in black.
- The Dreaded: After Sjin finds out the truth about him, he doesn't want to go anywhere near him and puts off confronting him.
- Death Is Cheap: Sjin and Jake the Dog kill him in the Twilight Forest, but Sjin doubts he's gone for good.
- Evil Laugh: In the flashback to Abel's story. It's the only thing he has ever "said" himself.
- Evil Tower of Ominousness: He erects one in the Nether, which he uses to keep Kim prisoner. Later seen spying on Sjin on the top of another, though Sjin seems oddly oblivious to it, either because he built it for aesthetic reasons or doesn't want to go near it.
- Expy: He seems to be the Feed The World / Sjin's Farm version of Israphel, being a kidnapping serial killer with a habit of troubling the protagonists, who's also linked to an old and dark entity and isn't played for laughs. This had led to people speculating that the two are either linked or the same person.
- Funny Background Event: In one of the introductions, it is possible to see him get up and walk away from his post.
- Genre Savvy: During his second direct confrontation with Sjin in the Twilight Forest, he camps at the portal to stop him escaping another way and starts shooting him the second he sees him.
- Karma Houdini: With the Heartbleed patch, most of Sjin's animals no longer exist. Sjin's confirmed that Strawfingers has not had the same fate.
- Kick the Dog: In a past backstory, it's revealed (or at least heavily implied that he's responsible) that shortly after helping Abel farm his crops, he brutally murdered his parents.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: In "Sjin's Farm", it's revealed that he murdered _Zips, who was a mentally unstable villain, kidnapper and Mad Bomber.
- Kill It with Fire: Seemingly the only way to make sure he's Killed Off for Real is to burn his head with either fire or lava, although just how weak he is to it remains to be seen, given how he spent some time in the Nether with seemingly no problems.
- Knight of Cerebus: It turns out he's a serial killer who's been doing his thing for a very long time, and also that he plans to blow up Sjin's farm plus all his guests.
- Mad Bomber: His plan overall is to destroy the Sjindig with mountains of TNT and a nuke.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Strawfingers is a Scary Scarecrow animated by magic, who also enjoys blowing things up or shooting them.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Meeting him in the present, he hasn't done that much of real damage. However, in the past he supposedly murdered Abel's parents for fun and in the present he's secretly planning to bomb Sjin's Sjindig with a nuke and some TNT. After this revelation, he stops being played for laughs.
- Obviously Evil: Looking at his skin makes it obvious that he isn't good.
- Poke the Poodle: He stole Sjin's texture pack. Not exactly a heinous crime.
- Psychotic Smirk or Slasher Smile: His skin has one of these as a default expression.
- Really 700 Years Old: Strawfingers has been doing his thing since Abel's time at least. That makes him potentially hundreds of years old.
- Scary Scarecrows: He resides in a fortress he built in the Nether and kidnaps people. Justified Trope, as he was meant to be used by Sjin to scare away birds (read: serve as an aesthetic decoration as birds don't exist in Feed the Beast with the exception of vanilla chickens and Twilight Forest penguins, neither of which can threaten crops).
- Serial Killer: What he turns out to be. It's probable that Abel's parents were far from his first victims, given how the Wizard seems to be behaving.
- Split Personality: Due to certain coincidences and holes in her backstory, a lot of fans believe that Kim is in fact the very Strawfingers who allegedly Kimnapped her.
- Stalker Without a Crush: To Sjin. Possibly a Stalker with a Crush to Kim.
- Supernatural Is Purple: Most of his face is purple, and he fits as a scarecrow that was brought to life through magical means.
- The Voiceless: He hasn't said a word, either in chat or with one of the Yogscast pretending to be him, though he leaves notes to get past this. He does have an Evil Laugh in Abel's flashback.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He sure is taking his sweet time with his plan to bomb the Sjindig. Averted in his confrontation with Sjin in the Twilight Forest, in which he starts shooting Sjin with a machine gun.
AbelA farmer who left a journal regarding his mysterious past and his encounters with an animated scarecrow, strongly implied to be Strawfingers.
- The Atoner: For letting his parents die.
- Break the Cutie: He goes adventuring and returns to find that Strawfingers murdered his parents for the hell of it.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Why he trusted the Wizard is unknown. The man practically gloated.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: Why he eventually goes off adventuring.
- Parents as People: His are described as pleasant and well-meaning, but he feels confined by them and wants to break out.
- Posthumous Character: Possibly. However old the diary is, it's not recently written, implying he's passed on.
- Took a Level in Badass: Eventually returns to his home a hardened warrior.
Unnamed WizardA wizard who is seemingly the Bigger Bad for Sjin's Farm.
- Beard of Evil: Has one on his skin.
- Bigger Bad: One minute of screentime at most, yet he's responsible indirectly for the deaths of Abel's parents and Sjin at one point, alongside Kim's kidnapping.
- Evil Sorcerer: What he is.
- Faux Affably Evil: Never rude, but really sadistic.
- No Name Given: Only known as a wizard.
- Posthumous Character: Possibly. However old Abel's diary is, it's not recently written. While magic could theoretically be keeping him alive, it's likely that he's passed on.
AnimalsThe various denizens of Sjin's farm.
- Badass Adorable: Jake the Dog, being a tamed wolf. He even saved Sjin from Strawfingers and his machine gun at one point.
- Big Damn Heroes: Jake the Dog randomly appears in the Twilight Forest to save Sjin from Strawfingers and his machine gun. Lampshaded by Sjin who has no idea as to how he got there.
- Butt Monkey/ The Chew Toy: Bessie the Cow, who's been stuck in a milk facility to produce countless buckets worth of milk and has literally no space to move around whatsoever.
- Damsel in Distress: Charlotte, Sjin's tamed cat, goes missing for a few episodes. Sjin eventually finds her after going on a rescue mission, although she's seemingly unharmed when he brings her home.
Unmarked Moon Quest and Galacticraft spoilers
_ZipsSeemingly a new member of Sipsco during the Sipsco Space Program and Sjintech Space Rescue series and a Walking Spoiler.
- Accent Upon The Wrong Syllable: Keeps pronouncing Sjin's name wrong, as SI-JIN. While Sjin pronounces it as S-gin, and the others pronounce it as "Shin". It's the most obvious clue that Sips_ is missing.
- Axe Crazy: Really enjoys blowing up stuff, and people.
- Bald of Evil: His skin seems to take inspiration from how Sips looks in real life.
- Batman Can Breathe in Space: He seems to think he can, owing to him trying to nerdpole up with some gravel and no oxygen gear. Obviously, he can't.
- Beware the Silly Ones: In spite of his dumb mannerisms, he's one hell of an explosives expert.
- Big Bad / Arc Villain: For the series. He's the reason Sips is on the moon.
- Cloning Blues: Sjin isn't sure whether or not _Zips is a clone of Sips or just a doppelganger of sorts. Sips confirms that he is a clone and has abducted him. For the record, he doesn't seem so sure himself.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: He's not entirely all there.
- Dumb Muscle: Most of his information on Sipsco is completely false, though in spite of this he's very good with TNT.
- Fake Nationality: In-Universe. Whoever voices him tries doing a Canadian accent and cannot pull it off at all.
- Guttural Growler: It's obviously not his natural voice, either.
- Hypocritical Humour: Accuses Sjin of not being the real Si-jin (or Zijin) when he's obviously not the real Sips.
- Killed Off for Real: Had his soul sucked out by Strawfingers at some point after blowing up Sips and Sjin's base on Slime Island
- Laughably Evil: He fits right in with the whole Sipsco recruitment policy, being almost amoral and hilarious(ly dumb in his case). Even after his Face-Heel Turn his various quirks are funny enough to keep him memorable.
- Literal-Minded: He's told by Sjin to get down from the pile of gravel he's trying to nerdpole to the moon with. He literally goes straight down by walking or jumping off to his death.
- The Load: Zig Zagged Trope before his Face-Heel Turn. He's competent enough to help Sjin do various things, but not competent enough to take the initiative.
- Mad Bomber: Blows up Sips and Sjin's base on Slime Island with a lot of TNT.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: The reason it doesn't get properly noticed till the start of Sjintech Space Rescue is Rule of Funny.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: See Mad Bomber.
- Too Dumb to Live: Tried nerdpoling into space (by piling up gravel) without any oxygen equipment. Sjin tells him to get down and he decides to jump from the stack of gravel directly down to Slime Island, dying from the fall.
- Walking Spoiler: In terms of his identity and appearance.
