* FiveBadBand: Brett Keane's posse from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5GEWEGAyho Religion Debate]] oddly enough fits this pretty well. [[TheDragon CheDubs]] is a YesMan to [[BigBad Brett Keane]]. [[DarkChick GalaxyDreamz]] is the [[SmurfettePrinciple only female member]] of the group. Two months after the debate, she left the posse and became an atheist. [=TrueEmpiricism=] is an aversion of the EvilGenius however, as while he claims to be a "science expert" he's really a KnowNothingKnowItAll. The debate also marked the first appearance of [[AWildRapperAppears G Man]] who soon became a recurring guest on the podcast.


* ManipulativeBastard: This is what makes Brett Keane such a vile person in the hosts' eyes. He's a disingenuous, manipulative liar with a long history of [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder throwing allies under the bus]], [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty using dirty tactics to win internet feuds]], [[DirtyCoward using his family and "health problems" as a shield against criticism]], and flip-flopping on his own principles. The bad thing is, he isn't even that ''good'' at it. He just refuses to ''stop''. He also exhibits a remarkable LackOfEmpathy, as well as a lack of ethics, standards, manners, character, and conviction. All of this on top of being a MASSIVE JerkAss, and is it any wonder why the hosts (especially TJ, [[BrokenPedestal who was inspired by Brett to create his]] Website/YouTube [[FallenHero channel years ago]], [[WeUsedToBeFriends and even worked with him and saw him as an ally in the early part of his career]]) treat him with such disdain?

** Episode 45 featured a special guest appearance by none other than VenomFangX, TJ's old ArchNemesis from the early days of Website/YouTube. VenomFang agreed to come on the show and debate TJ only on the condition that the hosts try to keep the swearing to an absolute minimum. To TJ's credit, he actually managed to avoid swearing throughout the majority of the episode ([[PrecisionFStrike only slipping up and saying "shit" once, then quickly apologizing]]), but everyone watching could tell that he was making a tremendous effort to keep it clean. When Shawn had to leave the call for a bit to attend to a personal matter, TJ unleashed a litany of rapid-fire swearing that had been building up throughout the entire debate, milking the short break for all that it was worth. As soon as Shawn returned, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he promptly went back to not swearing again]].

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: In Episode 88, after sitting through a Ryan Wiley video bashing a recent WebVideo/TheAmazingAtheist video he made, getting visibly more agitated as the video goes on, TJ finally ends up throwing a pretty epic ClusterFBomb-filled rant at Ryan Wiley when Wiley decides to give a disingenuous and misinformed critique of TJ's statements regarding the wage gap. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny The guest can even be heard clapping once he finishes.]]

TJ, Scotty, and Paul moved on to make ''[[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4NpbPE75Cb1xkbDLWq8WuA Deep Fat Fried]]'', a podcast where they cover a large topic or two per episode.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDogBitesBack: After 4 years of (arguably well deserved) humiliation and belittling by the peasants, the podcast was finally ended by a video created by Brett Keane himself.
