    Erika 
Commentary Hostess

Debuted in: A Wild Badfic Appeared! (Episode 1)
Snarker type: All-Around Snarker (Lv. 5) (Playful-leaning)

The Commentary's hostess. A 15-year old (and counting), sarcastic, energetic, fast-talking, paper fan-wielding Kansai Japanese shapeshifting yellow Mii who can switch between her Mii form and Emolga form at will, though she prefers the latter. The Author Avatar of the author, she has the ability to summon characters from other universes, and is the only one who has full awareness of ours. Being an extension of the author, she can say anything that comes to her mind that would be out of character for everybody else

  • Adorkable: A snarky, nerdy, tomboyish, autistic shapeshifter who can turn into a Flying squirrel-like Pokémon and Hormone-Addled Teenager who talks too fast.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Japanese and, by nature of the show and its premise, a pretty major nerd.
  • Author Avatar
  • Cool Hat: Wears a magenta and red Palette Swap of Lyra's hat. From Episode 23 onward, it changes to Ethan's to reflect her tomboyishness more. As of October 5th 2018, it became a black and dark grey hat, resembling the original hat more.
  • Covert Pervert: If her reaction to being petted by Robin in episode 14 is anything to go by. She also sits extremely close to Kamui without noticing in the next episode, ironically as she's talking about her nonchalant attitude on romance, and a few episodes later in 18 she sits on Link’s shoulder and is temporarily in a trance. She also pretty blatantly ogles Roy in episode 7.
    Erika: He's married, he's married, he's married...
    • And her pervertedness is shown again in Episode 20; she reacts pretty intensely when Adult!Red pets her, and Adult!Blue hitting on her leads to her sputtering before the show cuts to a We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties screen. And this becomes a Brick Joke when the latter flirts with her again after the end of the commentary, after which she says she has to use the bathroom and take a cold shower. Even during the commentary itself, she blushes when Blue gets flustered. It practically becomes a running gag pertaining to Bishounen.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: You really don't want her to yell around you.
  • Cuteness Proximity: She's not only clearly enamored by Lucas in Episode 7, but in Episode 25, she squeals and glomps Rock, overcome by this, much to his shock. She then does it again, this time with Robin in his Christmas costume in the next episode.
  • Deadpan Snarker: What did you expect?
  • Genki Girl: At times. She becomes calmer as she, and by extension the author, ages, but she generally always keeps her energetic persona.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Since she's Japanese, she uses this sometimes, first seen when mocking Sara for assuming all Asians speak the same language.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Has a huge moment of this when she sees Sonic for the first time in the first episode.
  • The Leader: Type I and III. As the commentary hostess, she is the leader of the team.
  • Magic Pants: Her clothes presumably magically disappear when she transforms.
  • Meganekko: Though the stereotypes don't exactly apply to her, she sports a pair of magenta glasses. Later, they were switched out with a pair of black ones.
  • Morphic Resonance: Downplayed. Her black hair, black hat, and yellow outfit in Mii form makes her slightly resemble an Emolga.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: She's the only character who averts this, as she ages along with her creator. This is first shown when Robin doesn't age when his birthday goes by, but Erika explicitly turns 16 in episode 9.
  • Older Than They Look: She starts the commentary at age 15, but according to her description in episode 1, she looks like a preteen.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: Starts wielding one in Episode 5, reflecting the region of Japan she's from. She even has a sheath for it. However, it isn't used as an actual weapon until Episode 25.
  • Reality Warper: Implied, due to the fact she can summon characters just by clapping (though only shown in episode 1) for one.
  • Shock and Awe: Can transform into an Emolga.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Says this word-for-word when she meets Lucina.
  • Tomboy: Despite the Lyra hat and moderate use of the color pink, she says herself that she is one of these, one of the things she likes to do being hands-on do-it-yourself projects. Eventually, she switches out the hat design in Episode 23 to that of Ethan's instead to reflect this.
    • Boyish Short Hair: Described as being short haired, and her Mii displayed on erikatheraindeer's profile appropriately sports it.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter

    Ness 

Debuted in: A Wild Badfic Appeared! (Episode 1)
Home series/game: EarthBound
Snarker type: All-Around Snarker (Lv. 6) (Playful-leaning)
"Well that escalated quickly! Sheepers Ieepers, we have children here!"

The 13-year old protagonist of EarthBound. Here he is characterized as an all-around snarky Wise Beyond His Years prodigy with an IQ of 150 and a Funetik Aksent, who despite his maturity is about as happy-go-lucky and fun-loving as Erika herself, possibly even more so, apparently as a manifestation of sorts of his debut game. Probably one of the most prominent party members, even surpassing Erika at times, and despite his young age (which he is very well aware of), and even younger appearance, he seems to be one of the most Medium Aware and knowledgeable generally about whatever pops up in the fics. And despite his friendliness, he also has this mysterious, even somewhat detached aura about him. Due to being one of the Original 12, he is also often the one most knowledgeable about the mansion and the tournament, and has a a lot of particluary close friends among the others as well, even with almost all of the Smashers already tending to see eachother as friends.

  • The Ace: Smart, snarkier than most party members, apparently a great singer and wise, yet still fun-loving.
  • Batter Up!: Uses a baseball bat as a weapon, which he uses to help fend off an apparent extension of Sara-Sue.
  • Cool Hat: His signature baseball cap.
  • Covert Pervert: If a throwaway remark by him is anything to go by, in regards to his Love Interest Paula.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Occasionally. Like when he mentions offhand that he thought of using Kirby as a gun.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Apparently deafening when he raises his voice.
  • Deadpan Snarker: And likely one of the most potent.
  • The Fake Cutie: He looks like a cute little boy; but behind that cherubic face and charming, indistinguishable accent is in fact a snarky 13-year-old with a much more mature personality and sense of humor, and a hidden cynicism that sometimes shows hints of itself. Calem, the only character in the Mishonh from God crew not previously familiar with him at that point, learns this in Episode 4 and is naturally kind of creeped out.
    Ness: (To Calem) *shrugs* *cheerfully* Oh, Xav, my innocence was lost a long time ago!
  • Funetik Aksent
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!/Unusual Euphemism: Seems to be fond of these - to the point he has a whole page in a notebook of them!
  • The Lancer: He's only second to Erika in importance and prominence, and may even outclass her.
  • Large Ham: When he wants to, he can be this to a delicious extent.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Gender Inverted.
  • Medium Awareness: How much is ambiguous, but he seems to have some knowledge about the fourth wall and the fact that he's from a video game.
  • Mouthy Kid
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: In the opener of Episode 7, the first one written after the death of Satoru Iwata, Ness is shown unusually disheveled, somewhat tired and overall very much not his usual cheerful self.
  • Psychic Powers
  • Seen It All: "Seen weirder!" is a phrase he likes to use quite often. Considering the game he's from...
  • Suddenly Fluent in Gibberish: He claims that he is literally fluent in Gibberish. As a result many look to him for translations when the spelling really gets bad.
  • Teen Genius: Has an IQ of 150. He often has knowledge on a bunch of trivia tangentially related to what is going on.
  • Totally Radical: Sometimes talks like this - due to the nature of the character, he is most likely making fun of himself more than anything.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hamburg steaks.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: His accent seems to be some kind of variation of Texan... or at least it might have been trying to be so initially. It then rapidly became more and more distinct, so that it can't really be pinned down to any specific region.
  • Wise Beyond His Years: Though more willing to have fun than most examples.
  • Younger Than They Look: A thing about himself he likes to make fun of on occasion. He hasn't hit puberty yet and looks and sounds 8, but he takes it in stride.

    Sonic 

Debuted in: A Wild Badfic Appeared! (Episode 1)
Home series/game: Sonic the Hedgehog
Snarker type: Playful-Relaxed Snarker (Lv. 5)

The hero of the Sonic series of video games, he retains his laid-back and wisecracking attitude for the commentary. He, like Erika and Ness, really loves his job in the show, and clearly shows his enjoyment in what he does, though he is less hyperactive or rapid-fire than Erika or Ness. Seems to be oblivious of sexual content.

  • Asexuality: According to Word of God, Sonic is interpreted as such by erikatheraindeer. It's also implied he's generally oblivious to sexuality despite officially being in his mid-teens.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As expected.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: He has stated a few times that he doesn't like sweets; such as in Episode 9 where he rejects Erika's birthday cake, and in Episode 10 in which he says he doesn't care much for Halloween candy and is in it purely for the fun. This shocks the two Corrins in episode 15 due to their canonical Sweet Tooths.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Surprisingly, he's referenced literary and story conventions and tropes a few times, much like Robin does. This stems from the fact that he is actually shown to like reading in the games he hails from, specifically shown the storybook series.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chili dogs.

     Robin♂ 

Debuted in: A Wild Badfic Appeared! (Episode 1)
Home series/game: Fire Emblem Awakening
Snarker type: Relaxed Snarker (Lv. 4)
"What? I’m used to literature, not the embodiment of the worst that an happen without a publishing house!

The male avatar and tactician from Fire Emblem Awakening. The oldest out of the original five party members, he is more deadpan and relaxed in his sarcasm, and somewhat less in frequency, though he does enjoy his job as any of them. Due to the medieval setting he comes from, he isn't that aware of modern technology and knowledge, though he is clearly not stupid, showing his intellect in other areas. Due to being a literature fan, he has an understanding of literary conventions and cliches, often taking on more of a mock-critical take on what he does than others.

  • Adorkable: In some of his sillier moments, as well as in his general obliviousness of some elements of modern society, especially in earlier episodes.
  • Badass Bookworm: He occasionally references literature, being an avid reader of books like in canon, and various literary conventions and techniques.
  • Best Friends-in-Law: He's technically Chrom's son-in-law.
  • Bishounen: As has been noticed by quite a few female characters.
  • Butt-Monkey: While it isn't too persistent, it's somewhat of a Running Gag for someone or something to fall on his back (and he always uses the same line no less), and he's had more than a few unwanted sexual advances aimed at him from female characters on and offscreen, among various other gags at his expense.
    Robin: Gah! My back!
  • Chick Magnet: Aside from Lucina, he's found to be attractive by Erika, Tharja back home, Selene...
  • Cool Big Bro: He's the oldest out of the original 5, as lampshaded in the notes of Episode 8 where erikatheraindeer refers to him as the "chaperone".
  • Covert Pervert: Blushes recalling Lucina in her Spring Festival costume; which, to those unfamiliar, looks like a Playboy Bunny outfit.
  • Deadpan Snarker
    • Gentleman Snarker: Especially compared to others of the original 5, he's much more polite and calm than most when it comes to his role.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Because of the setting he comes from, he tends to be slow to modern references. However, living with the Smashers has seemed to have given him at least a rudimentary knowledge.
  • Happily Married: To Lucina.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Chrom, full stop. When they're in the party together, they tend to play off of eachother, bantering quite often or sometimes even somewhat childishly teasing eachother, and it's made really clear that they're very close friends.
  • Large Ham: Not normally, but even he can have moments like these, I.e. "You're a Mean One, Sara-Sue".
  • Living Crashpad: Unfortunately tends to happen to him somewhat often, at the expense of hurting his back.
  • Not So Above It All: He's generally the most relaxed and serious out of the initial members of the Mishonh from God commentary, and even among the others he's one of the most levelheaded, but even he shows downright goofy moments (in particular, "You're A Mean One, Sara-Sue!"); and in Episode 22, he outright has a minor freakout over Sara's Insane Troll Logic strategy.
  • Only Sane Man: It's not that everybody is insane or even abnormal per se, it's just that he's the most calm most of the time.
  • Seduction-Proof Marriage: Invokes this when Selene flirts with him in her debut. He tells her he's married, and she backs off immediately; however it's merely invoked because the girl in question is only 11 years old.
  • The Smart Guy: Out of the initial five.
  • The Strategist: His status as one comes up sometimes; in Episode 22 of Misonh from God, Sara actually attempting to use strategy... only to blatantly render it meaningless not a line later makes him briefly lose his cool.

    Rock/Mega Man (and Rush) 

Debuted in: A Wild Badfic Appeared! (Episode 1)
Home series/game: Mega Man (Classic)
Snarker type: Gimmick Character (Lv. 2) (Innocent) (Rock), Neutral (Rush)
"Let's do it!" "Woof!"

The Kid Hero robot of the Mega Man classic series, and his loyal robot dog. While Rush doesn't have much personality and just sticks in the occasional bark, Rock himself is a bit different from the original five, in that he is not as sarcastic, nor as really biting in his remarks. Probably one of the most Moe portrayals of the Blue Bomber, being rather naive and childish, contrasting him with Ness, with a childlike curiosity, optimism and obliviousness to romance and sexual content; he was apparently added in mainly for Author Appeal because of her like for cute characters.

  • Adorkable: Due to Rock's general naivety and cheerfulness.
  • Cheerful Child
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Averted for Rush in Episode 8; he just disappears, but then Rock is immediately asked about it and he explains that he got bored, lampshading the very little role he had in the first place.
  • The Cutie: Rock seems to have this role in the commentary - cute, innocent, and just plain adorable.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Actually downplayed. Compared to most others, Rock isn't much. However, even he has his moments sometimes.
  • Flat Character: Rush
  • Innocent Prodigy: Rock's characterization invokes this, what with being intelligent but very naive.
  • Nice Guy: While most of the commentators are nice, kind people despite their sarcasm and love of roasting their victims, he's quite possibly one of the sweetest.
  • Robot Kid
  • Tagalong Kid: Seeing as he doesn't contribute as much as the other original five.
  • Team Pet: Rush
  • The Speechless: Rush, even after the introduction of translators, is only ever seen barking and making dog noises.

Everyone past this point is a Walking Spoiler. Please proceed with caution.




    Lucina 

Debuted in: Two Blue Recruits and Magic Gum! (Episode 3)
Home series/game: Fire Emblem Awakening
Snarker type: Gimmick Character (Lv. 1) (Comically Serious)
"I'll do my best"

The princess of Yilisse, other Smasher from Fire Emblem Awakening in SSB 4, and in this case, Robin's wife. She is decidedly less sarcastic than most of the other party members in her debut, making up for it with being Comically Serious to a rather ludicrous extent. In Mishonh from God, she was only a temporary party member, leaving after episode 5.

    Calem 

Debuted in: Two Blue Recruits and Magic Gum! (Episode 3)
Home series/game: Pokémon X and Y
Snarker type: Playful-Relaxed Snarker (Lv. 4)
"Bonjour!"

The male trainer from Pokémon X and Y, and champion of Kalos. He is depicted here as a suave, free-spirited, laid-back, somewhat Troll-ish Charmer, and is stated to be an Expy of Sonic. He debuted in the commentary with his loyal Gredinja Sudz, and has a snarking style similar to who he was based off of.

  • The Ace: He's considered a prodigy and hero back home, and is the champion of Kalos on top of it. While he isn't as legendary as Red, it's made clear via Elio and Selene that he's pretty well-regarded.
  • Bilingual Bonus: His and his entire party's dialogue is littered with French words and phrases and translated French expressions.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Expy: Of Sonic. Because of their similarities, they seem to hit off a friendship really well.
  • Fish out of Water: In a sense; he and some of his Pokemon are some of the few non-Smashers who aren't Erika in the Supper Smash Bros run, and is the only permanent one. As a result, he sometimes has no clue what his fellow party members or parts of the fic are talking about.
  • Gratuitous French: Often drops these in his dialogue. In fact, Erika says in her notes that her decision to include him was influenced by a Gratuitous French misspelling in chapter 3. This also applies to most of his party, who often liberally use French words sprinkled throughout their dialogue. He and his Pokemon also sometimes use literal versions of actual French sayings (e.g., "the brain of a cheese sandwich", "a beard").
    • The birth names of most of his Pokémon, as well as of the nicknames, are also in French.
  • In-Series Nickname: “Xav”, probably a reference to promotional material.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite himself, sometimes can't help but laugh at the immature spelling "errors" littered throughout Mishonh from God, being a teenager and all.
  • Princely Young Man: A mix of the Prince Charming and Gentleman type; Charming, rather calm and relaxed, and it's even revealed in episode 19 that he's actually known as "Prince Charming" back home.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When mentioning the Ultimate Weapon incident to Elio, his tone briefly becomes more serious than usual, despite making a few jokes about Team Flare before Episode 20. Apparently, even he still has a bit of a difficult time believing that actually happened. Considering the fate of all life on Earth rested solely on the shoulders of him and four other teenagers, he may have become immortal, and everything else surrounding AZ, the Ultimate Weapon, Infinity Energy, and Team Flare, that's pretty understandable.
  • Red Baron: According to Elio, "Prince Charming".
  • Sophisticated as Hell: While he does use Gratuitous French, he also commonly uses words like "dude", "bro", "sick", and occasionally even "crap".
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Downplayed; fan of previous Pokémon protagonists Red and Hilbert.
  • The Tease: He likes flirting with female characters if the chance arises for fun, ranging from Bayonetta, to (albeit offscreen) Selene, to Erika, to even Sara herself.

Calem's Pokémon

Sudz

Debuted in: Two Blue Recruits and Magic Gum! (Episode 3)
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Lv. 3)
"Bonjour! Xav, can you hear me?"

Calem's Greninja, whose given birth name is Dax. He is only about 9 in Gredinja years, making him very childish for his appearance. Rather mischievous, and one of the first to laugh at an immature joke.

Scarlette

Debuted in: Episode 9 from Outer Space! Happy Birthday, Erika!
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (spicy variant) (Lv. 5)
"Let's DO this, Mon ami!!"

Calem's hotheaded, loud Talonflame, and his second Pokemon, with the given birth name Madelene. She is around her late teens in Talonflame years.

Scouter

Debuted in: Pokeball Palooza! (Episode 16)
Snarker type: Caustic Snarker (Level 5)
"You're both morons. What about that?"

An impatient, grumpy, pessimistic, rather cynical Lucario with the birth name "Lawrence", and one of two at the mansion. His natural personality clash with Scarlette leads to them arguing rather often, though for whatever reason he's less irritated around Buttercup, as well as Macaron due to his calmer, more down-to-Earth nature.

  • The Comically Serious: Due to his nature as a Caustic.
  • The Cynic: He's probably one of, if not the most cynical commentators in the Mishonh from God run. He's also the cynic of his party, which consists almost entirely of optimistic, energetic, and/or quirky characters and is led by a free-spirited flirt.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Foreign Cuss Word: In Episode 21, he basically calls Sara an "idiotic c#%^" in French. This did not go unnoticed by Calem and Buttercup, however. He also calls her a "nutcracker" in the same episode, a literal translation of another French insult.
  • Grumpy Bear: Comes across as this when compared to the rest of his party and his trainer, not to mention the commentators in general.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he is a pessimistic, grumpy stick in the mud, he still cares for his party-mates, trainer, and fellow Smashers deep down.
  • Sarcastic Devotee: He may often roll his eyes at or grumble at what Calem says or does, but he still respects his Trainer deeply and follows him regardless, to the point he left his old trainer, Korrina, to join his party. Since Mega Evolution doesn't seem to have the negative effects described in Pokémon Sun and Moon, this is also implied by the fact that he can do so.
  • In-Series Nickname: Scarlette, as well as many other party members and at a few points Calem himself getting in on it, calls him "Bougon", French for "Grump".
  • Translator Microbes

Buttercup

Debuted in: Fastball Christmas Special! (Episode 21)
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Level 3)
"YEEEHAW!"

A cheerful, hammy, spunky, tomboyish female Gogoat by the Pokemon name of "Bayley", with a free spirit and outspoken voice. Strangely enough, Scouter doesn't seem as annoyed by her as he is with everyone else.

Macaron

Debuted in: Zootopian Star Wars! Do the Easter Sylveon Hop! (Episode 25)
Snarker type: Gimmick (Calm)(Level 2)
"Very well, then. If you wish, I will continue."

A calm, polite shiny male Sylveon with the birth name of "Claude" and the mentality of a knight. He is relatively friendly but extremely formal, supportive of his friends, and very loyal to Calem, who he addresses as "sire". Has a pair of Choice Specs on his head. Happens to be the second of his species to join in the commentary.

  • Bilingual Bonus: Those who know even basic French may be able to immediately guess that Macaron is male when his name is revealed; "Macaron" is a masculine noun.
  • The Comically Serious: Has a mostly serious, if still somewhat lighthearted, gentlemanly demeanor even in the face of reading the ramblings of a rabid 13-year-old.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Yes, despite looks, he is indeed male, much to the shock of pretty much everyone who didn't know him previously (and Ness, who could probably already tell).
  • Good Old Ways: He speaks using a mild case of Antiquated Linguistics, is very gentlemanly, honorable, and as mentioned before, calls Calem "sire". As one of Calem's wild-caught Pokemon (as opposed to Sudz, his Charizard, and Scouter, who were given to him), he apparently sees being captured as some kind of knightly contract, and takes his duty very seriously.
  • Grammar Nazi: He tries to correct Sara-Sue's spelling, despite Scouter telling him it's futile.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Boy does he act like one. And he thinks that he pretty much is a knight for all intents and purposes, viewing the Pokemon-Trainer relationship as that of a knight and lord.
  • More Than Meets the Eye: He and Sudz may as well have had their personalities switched. He's a blue, adorable, whimsical-looking fairy-like dog-creature with ribbons as appendages, but he's actually very calm and level-headed.
  • Only Sane Man: Among Calem's party, he's probably one of the most down-to-Earth.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Fairy type.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Wears Choice Specs on his head.
  • Spock Speak: Downplayed, but it especially stands out compared to other members of his team. He speaks in a very formal, polite, intellectual way, even addressing his trainer by a title rather than by name or nickname like everyone else, so that it comes across like he's a knight or servant speaking to his lord rather than friends speaking together. This naturally weirds Calem out a bit.
  • Translator Microbes

Torch

Debuted in: Sorry For The Rapping! (Episode 29)
Snarker type: Miscellaneous (Level 3)
—-> “This BETTER be worth waking my up from my beauty sleep over!”

A loud but extremely lazy Charizard with the birth name “Jean”. He appears in his debut sleeping, and in general doesn’t really seem to care too much. Used to be the Charizard representing his species in Smash, but has been replaced by another one.

  • Deadpan Snarker: A Level 3. He probably can’t bother to go beyond that.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Appears from his Pokeball sleeping. By everyone’s reactions, this is apparently normal.
  • Large Ham: A rare example combined with Sleepyhead; just because he’s extremely lazy doesn’t mean he isn’t fond of chewing the scenery as much of, if not more than, Buttercup.
  • Lazy Bum: Yup. Scouter chastises him for this several times, and he himself admits himself that he’s lazy.
  • Sleepy Head: His very debut is him sleeping, and he tries to fall back asleep several times, much to Scouter’s annoyance.
  • Trabslator Microbes

    Chrom 

Debuted in: The Trio's Here! Of donuts, bashing through snow, and otters. (Episode 4)
Home series/game: Fire Emblem Awakening
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Lv. 4)
"Listen young lady, being a ruler is not a easy job. What right do you have when all you do is sit on your lazy bum all day?!"

Lucina's father and the current Exalt of Yilisse, and Robin's best friend. He was the commentary's first character of the "Deadpan Snarker" category.

    Pit 

Debuted in: The Trio's Here! Of donuts, bashing through snow, and otters. (Episode 4)
Home series/game: Kid Icarus
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Lv. 5)
"Ready or not, Pit quips in!"

The hero of the Kid Icarus series, captain of the Goddess of Light Palutena's guard, and one of the most potent members of the commentary. While not exactly the smartest, he is one of the best examples of "Playful Snarker", completely retaining his cheerful, hotblooded personality from his own series. Much like Ness, he also has a particularity wide web of friendships and bonds across the Smashers, seemingly being close friends with pretty much everyone, especially the swordsmen and Samus, who he considers his older sister due to a Noodle Incident.

  • Adorkable
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Despite being technically older than Dark Pit, he definitely acts like this. Best shown when he forces the poor dark angel to dress in matching costumes with him. Multiple times. He also acts like one to Samus, though she more openly enjoys his presence.
  • Berserk Button: Ridley. Don't even mention him in front of him. Apparently, he used a replica to be used in the Pyrosphere stage as target practice... yes, really. He becomes uncharacteristically wrathful to a scary degree when he appears in Mishonh from God, albeit still in his hammy, loud way.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Or rather, Little Brother Instinct; presumably why he hates Ridley so much.
  • Big Eater: His appetite is bought up quite often.
  • Book Dumb: Noticeably so; he would be illiterate and therefore unable to participate if he wasn't taught to read and write beforehand, and even then, it is implied he is only slightly better than Sara in spelling.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Sometimes.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Hotblooded
  • Keet: And how.
  • Large Ham: He is not above yelling and overdramatic acting at all, and does it all with a lot of cheerful energy.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Apparently his relationship with Samus, a reference to the fact that the original Kid Icarus and Metroid are considered sibling games.
  • Medium Awareness: The only one besides Ness and Erika to break the fourth wall.
  • Twin Banter: With Dark Pit

    Kristoff (Herdier) 
Debuted in: Goodbye Lucina! The Pokemon get a voice. (Episode 5)
Home series/game: Pokémon; based off of the character of the same name from Frozen
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Lv. 5)
"This should be good"

An ice-harvesting Herdier from the kingdom of Arendale, based heavily off of the character from Frozen, able to talk due to a special collar. He has a very similar style to Chrom. A half-OC of sorts, he apparently comes from a Frozen adaption concept that the author has, reenacting the movie with Pokemon. In Mishonh from God, he left at the end of episode 8.

    Lucas 
Debuted in: Football, meetings and farewells (Episode 7)
Home series/game: MOTHER 3
Snarker type: Gimmick (Sweet) (Lv. 2)
"I-I’ll do my best!"

The protagonist of Mother 3, and one of three DLC characters bought in as guests in "Football, Meetings and Farewells". A very shy individual, contrasting everyone else who has appeared, he doesn't contribute as much. One of Ness's closest friends. Much like Rock, it seems he is one of the more innocent party members in terms of sexual content.

  • Adorkable
  • The Cutie: Even more so than Rock.
  • Nice Guy: He's generally very sweet, and can't really bring himself to say anything that snarky.
  • Shrinking Violet: Very much so; in fact, it's pretty much his gimmick. Though apparently it was worse back in Brawl.

    Roy 
Debuted in: Football, meetings and farewells (Episode 7)
Snarker type: Gimmick (Sweet) (Level 1.5)
"Um... Hello? Nice to... meet you?"

The sweet but intelligent and highly curious hero of the sixth Fire Emblem game, also known as the "Young Lion of Pherae", and one of three DLC characters bought in as guests in "Football, Meetings and Farewells". Out of the three, he tries to be the most forgiving (as opposed to being simply scared like Lucas), trying to somehow see the best in Sara-Sue's completely black soul. Generally calm.

  • Adorkable: Comes across as this in his sheer eager curiosity and willingness to learn about our world, despite the... questionable quality of what is initially telling him about it, his relative innocence to certain content, and increasingly strained attempts to remain polite.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Drops a few of these, though he speaks in mostly English, unlike in Smash Bros. Since the author is Japanese, it is used in the appropriate context.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: His relative kindness towards Sara-Sue often comes off as this.
    "Um... Alright, then. That's ...interesting?"
  • Half-Human Hybrid: It is mentioned in a throwaway comment that he is part Manakete.
  • Red Baron: "The Young Lion of Pherae".
  • Nice Guy: As one of the few lords who never says anything snarky in canon ever, he's not really that sarcastic, and generally, he's just really kind, calm, and polite, with his reactions, much like Lucas, consisting mostly of confusion and concern, as well as attempted kindness and advice.
  • The Pollyanna: In a way; despite all, he's generally at least somewhat polite to Sara-Sue all the way through, something even the kindest of commentators don't even try to be, always looking for some kind of good thing to say. Though even then, he isn't really pleased when his best friend among the Smashers (that being Marth) is written to do some... rather gross things.

    Ryu 
Debuted in: Football, meetings and farewells (Episode 7)
Home series/game: Street Fighter
Snarker type: Gimmick (Comically Serious) (Lv. 2.5)
"Challenge Accepted."

A Japanese martial artist who is the protagonist of the Street Fighter series, and one of three DLC characters bought in as guests in "Football, Meetings and Farewells". Much like Lucina, he is less of a Snarker than one who stays serious in the most ridiculous moments, though he has moments of snark as well, and is less likely to get angry than her.

    Dark Pit 
Debuted in: The Arranged Marriage of Terror! (Episode 10)
Home series/game: Kid Icarus
Snarker type: Caustic Snarker (Lv. 5)
"Let’s get this over with."

Pit's dark counterpart, he is the first Caustic Snarker to appear. As a result, his comments are less joke-like than others, being more biting, dry, and less joyful about the situation he is in. Often, he can play off of the extremely playful-type Pit for unique results.

  • Caustic Critic: Invoked by his Snarker type.
  • The Comically Serious: He is not exactly chipper about his circumstances, and is less jokey in his approach. The party being filled with Playful Snarkers (Erika, Ness, Sonic, Calem, Scarlette, and especially Pit) at the time of his debut did not help either.
  • Deadpan Snarker: And a Caustic level 5 at that.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Invoked with his relationship with Pit.
  • Twin Banter: In the chapters he's in, he tends to play off of and argue with Pit.

    Cloud Strife 
Debuted in: Da nanananana na na na~♪ (Episode 11)
Home series/game: Final Fantasy VII
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Lv. 5)
"Okay then… Let’s mosey."

The hero of the seventh installment of the head-achingly popular Final Fantasy, bought in to celebrate his DLC release a week or so prior. Unlike the previous DLC characters, however, he gets used to the commentary rather quickly, proving to be a very potent Deadpan Snarker.

    Bayonetta 
Debuted in: A Big Fat Rich British New Years (Episode 14)
Home series/game: Bayonetta
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Troll) (Lv. 6)
"Let's have fun with this, shall we?"

The protagonist of her self-titled game, who at the time of her introduction hadn't even been made downloadable yet, but was let in early anyways. Is the first of the "Troll" snarker variety, and is one of the fastest to adapt to the commentary. She's also usually one of the first to catch dirty jokes and true to her subtype is rather taunting in her demeanor.

  • Deadpan Snarker: And an impressive Level Six at that!
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: She's not above using Black Humor, and seems to have sadistic tendencies, just like in canon.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Much like Scarlette, she is an unashamed, unabashed pervert, probably even more so.
  • Madame Swears A Lot: While some other characters curse as well, she especially has little qualms about it and using more explicit swears due to the type of game she's from. Exemplified by the Cluster F-Bomb of (albeit bleeped out) British expletives she casually rattles off in her debut episode.
  • The Tease: Oh yes. Almost all her lines come off as extremely flirty, whether it be towards Calem, Erika (who wasn't really amused by it), Sara, or the audience.
  • Troll: The first of this specific variant of Snarker.

    Corrin♂, AKA Kamui 
Debuted in: Happy Valentine's day! Closet hiding intensifies! (Episode 15)
Home series/game: Fire Emblem Fates
Snarker type: Relaxed Snarker (Level 3)
"My name is not Corn!"

The male avatar of Fire Emblem Fates, and the last DLC newcomer to come to the commentary, alongside his Distaff Counterpart. He is the second pure Relaxed Snarker to join the commentary, though he isn't as potent as Robin due to being a level 3. Overall mild-mannered and hard to anger.

  • Adorkable: Oh god. He's probably a bigger dork than even Rock and Pit.
  • Bi the Way: Never explicitly stated (due to the author's aversion to yaoi and yuri), and unknown to them, but expressed via his (and his counterpart's) mysterious irritation towards PrincessAmerica.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: "Corn"; the poor guy apparently got an embarrassing nickname within a week at the mansion. Unfortunately for him, the other commentators like to tease him about it.
  • Happily Married: To Azura, though unlike Robin it's only offscreen.
  • In-Series Nickname: Besides "Corn", "Kamui", his "Hoshido name", what he prefers others call him to differentiate him from Corrin♀.
  • Sweet Tooth: Oh yes. His and his counterpart's love of candy is made pretty clear in their debut.
  • Twin Telepathy: Implied. Sometimes his lines overlap with Corrin's, albeit seemingly by coincidence, and they also tend to banter with one another.

    Corrin♀ 
Debuted in: Happy Valentine's day! Closet hiding intensifies! (Episode 15)
Home series/game: Fire Emblem Fates
Snarker type: Playful-Relaxed Snarker (Level 3)
"Let's do this!"

The female avatar of Fire Emblem Fates, and the last DLC to come to the commentary, alongside her Spear Counterpart. She tends to be more peppy and energetic than her male counterpart, and somewhat more vocal.

  • Adorkable: Somewhat less than Kamui, but still very much so.
  • Bi the Way: Never explicitly stated (due to the author's aversion to yaoi and yuri), and unknown to them, but expressed via her (and her counterpart's) mysterious irritation towards PrincessAmerica.
  • The Gadfly: She teases some of the party members as well as Princess America, and seems to take pleasure in egging her counterpart about his Embarrassing Nickname.
  • Happily Married: To her Battle Butler Jakob. Like with Kamui, it's never shown onscreen.
  • Sweet Tooth: Just like her counterpart.
  • Twin Telepathy: Implied. Sometimes her lines overlap with Kamui's, albeit seemingly by coincidence, and they also tend to banter with one another.

    Sweetie 
Debuted in: Pokeball Palooza! (Episode 16)
Home series/game: Pokémon
Snarker type: Deadpan-Relaxed Snarker (Level 4)
"Augh, this language butchering! I hate it!"

A rather hasty busybody of a Jigglypuff with a perfectionist streak. Much like Ness, she has been around since the beginning of Smash.

    Anna (Sylveon) 
Debuted in: Pokeball Palooza! (Episode 16)
Home series/game: Pokémon; based off of the character of the same name from Frozen
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Level 3)
"Wait, what?"

A cheerful, somewhat hotheaded, tomboyish Sylveon princess from the same world Kristoff hails from. She debuted along with her sister, whom she often bounces off of for most of her jokes. She hits off a friendship with Pit due to their similarities.

  • Big Little Sister: Sylveon are, in fact, about twenty centimeters taller than Glaceon on average. Granted, they're both adults.
  • Civilized Animal: Somewhere between this and Funny Animal. She comes from a well-developed society with established customs, culture, and apparently writing system, as well as a ruling family she is part of, yet she still walks on all fours, has animal-like mannerisms, and requires a headset to talk to humans. I.e., she comes from a world very similar to the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A low-level one, but still.
  • Furry Reminder: She acts and is referenced to have acted like a dog several times. She also mentions knowing how to use the Pokémon moves Swift and Moon Blast.
  • Genki Girl
  • Large Ham: Yup.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Is the Fairy-type Sylveon, and mentions being able to use Moon Blast. Since the version of Hans in her universe happens to be a Riolu, a pure fighting type, this also adds the poetic irony of the Anna going from having a type disadvantage to him to having an advantage over him via evolution.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Elsa's Blue Oni, which is even reflected in their main colors, unlike their movie counterparts, by virtue of their species; Glaceon have light blue fur, while Sylveon have a primarily pink color scheme.
  • The Power of Love: Considering how it happens in the games, and the events of the movie from which the character she is based on is from, this is presumably how she evolved into Sylveon.
  • Tomboy Princess
  • Translator Microbes

    Elsa (Glaceon) 
Debuted in: Pokeball Palooza! (Episode 16)
Home series/game: Pokémon; based off of the character of the same name from Frozen
Snarker type: Deadpan-Relaxed Snarker (Level 3)
"...Do I even want to know."

A serious, reserved Glaceon from the same world Kristoff originated from, and the queen of their version of Arendale. She debuted along with her sister, whom she often bounces off of for most of her jokes.

  • An Ice Person: Obviously. It's also safe to assume she's been that way even as an Eevee.
  • Civilized Animal: See Anna's entry. She may be from a developed society, but she still walks on all fours.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Albeit a low-level one.
  • Furry Reminder: Talks about Pokémon society at a few points, which is built to accommodate the fact that yes, many Pokémon of many different species are living together; i.e., sniffing being taboo as a greeting since it creeps some species out. She herself also has some dog-like mannerisms, just like her sister.
  • The High Queen: She sure carries herself like the queen she is.
  • Power Incontinence: While she is seen to not suffer from it anymore, she still has some nervousness about it, and the air temperature around her takes a dive when startled.
  • Proper Lady: Definitely, especially compared to Anna.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Anna's Red Oni, which is even reflected in their main colors, unlike their Disney counterparts, by virtue of their species; Glaceon have light blue fur, while Sylveon have a primarily pink color scheme.
  • Translator Microbes

    Samus Aran 
Debuted in: I rate it 7.8/10 (Episode 17)
Home series/game: Metroid
Snarker type: Deadpan-Caustic Snarker (Level 4)
" ... What am I looking at?"

The famous bounty hunter, and Smash veteran. A stoic, no-nonsense woman with vast knowledge in various fields of science, she isn't exactly happy with her situation, unlike Pit, whom she shares a sibling-like relationship with because of a certain event in their past that is not detailed, and as a result Palutena treats her like a surrogate daughter even with her being physically older, despite (and possibly because of) her chagrin. Generally she doesn't express too much emotion and treats everything in a professional fashion, dismissive of anything frivolous or girly, though she is somewhat more open to those whom she trusts very much.

    Palutena 
Debuted in: I rate it 7.8/10 (Episode 17)
Home series/game: Kid Icarus
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Troll) (Level 5)
"Here's how a goddess does it"

Goddess of Light, Pit's mother figure, and lover of messing with people friend and foe alike. Introduced alongside Samus, she is one of the most potent members of the party and generally one of the best examples of a party member who loves her job. Much like Pit, she has absolutely no problem being overdramatic and hammy, and most of the time does to get a bigger reaction out of people; and she also isn't above using her literally godly powers for causing various mischief directed at her fellow commentators. Apparently hit it off with Bayonetta very well despite initial conflict due to their similar personalities.

    Link (Twilight Princess) 
Debuted in: Attack on Commie Nazis! (Episode 18)
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Level 3)
"Blimey... Ah don't want to make assumptions about yer home life... But pardon?!"

One of the many incarnations of the holder of the Triforce of Courage, specifically the Link from Twilight Princess, and currently the Link representing his universe in Smash. However, he's mostly a farm boy with a strong sense of justice and caring personality, though he has seemed to take slightly after Midna with her snarky attitude. Despite his shtick as a Heroic Mime, here not only can he speak, but he also has a rather distinct speech pattern of British words and terminology mixed with a Texan accent. He was introduced alongside Toony.

  • Deadpan Snarker: While not one of the most potent, he can get in some barbs once in a while.
  • Farm Boy: With the accent to reflect it.
  • Friend to All Children: It's heavily implied that he's pretty much the go-to person when it comes to looking after the younger Smashers, and a very respected authority figure to them.
  • Funetik Aksent
  • Hidden Depths: Apparently, he can be somewhat arrogant in battle against adults. The reason why he twirls his sword is a result of habit from when he was more arrogant overall, so he's mellowed out a lot over the course of his journey.
  • I Am Very British: Averted; mostly, he speaks in dated British terminology (as in he uses words like "golly" and "blimey" with no irony whatsoever), but his accent is clearly Texan-esque, and he's pretty much the opposite of the stereotype.
  • I Hate Past Me: Downplayed. While he does regret his past arrogance, he isn’t exactly recoiling in horror at it.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Papa Link", courtesy of Toony.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Toony's Red Oni.

    Toony 
Debuted in: Attack on Commie Nazis! (Episode 16)
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Level 4)
"It's Toon Link, you scurvy dog!"

The cheerful, scrappy, wisecracking young sailor and hero who currently bears the Triforce of Courage in his timeline, debuting alongside with Twilight Princess Link, who he is pretty much brothers with. Much like his older counterpart, he also has a rather unique way of speaking in that his lines are sprinkled with British slang that makes him come across like a boisterous experienced man of the seas; i.e., he sort of talks like a pirate. And unlike his older counterpart, he's not above overacting when the time calls for it.

    Selene 
Debuted in: Alola! (Episode 19)
Home series/game: Pokémon Sun and Moon
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Level 2.5)
"Alola!"

The female player character of Pokémon Sun and Moon; an energetic, outgoing, plucky, and somewhat odd young Pokémon trainer who in her debut episode had just received her starter, along with Elio.

  • Cheerful Child
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Possibly on par with Sudz, if not more so. In her debut episode alone, she randomly flirts with Robin (and sniffs him, or at least awkwardly comments that "You smell good!"), as well as Ness offscreen, does so twice with Calem, (a Champion of a region, celebrity, and well-regarded hero back in her universe), albeit offscreen the first time, with no qualms or hesitation whatsoever, constantly calls Elio "Ellie" despite him telling her repeatedly not to, spouts out a non-sequitar before the commentary even begins, immediately gets used to being warped to some room she doesn't know after barely receiving her starter (while Elio's reaction is a lot more reasonable in that he still doesn't seem to be fully buying that he's not dreaming), and is mentioned to see nothing wrong with sleeping in people's beds without asking.
  • Dirty Kid: Implied with her actions towards some of the male party members, albeit somewhat justified due to her presumably having hit puberty already; though how much of it is indeed early pubescent lust or simply Selene being Selene isn't too clear.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Before she's even named, she's introduced sneaking behind Robin and surprise-flirting with him, being extremely cheerful about her situation, and Elio and Pueo chastising her as if this has happened before. Note, Pueo had barely been with her for a day at the time.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Even if they aren't actually siblings, she and Elio essentially are this, with her as the foolish sibling and him as the responsible one.
  • Genki Girl: Oh boy.
  • Like Brother and Sister: While they may act like it, with how well they know eachother and all, she and Elio are in fact not twins, but cousins, according to throwaway lines said by her in the opener of their debut episode and at the beginning of the commentary.
  • Likes Older Men: She flirts with Robin, Ness (who is technically 2 years older than her), and Calem in her debut. Twice with the latter. Albeit downplayed, as two of the three are teenagers (and Ness hasn't even hit puberty yet at that, according to him), and the oldest, Robin, is a young adult at most.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: She has no problem with going up in people's faces or suddenly sneaking up on and grabbing them, even if said people are those she barely knows.
  • Perverted Sniffing: If the fact that Robin asks her, somewhat horrified, "Did you just sniff me?!", and she also comments he smells good before her name even is shown is any indication, she isn't above it. Granted, she probably doesn't know what's wrong with this behavior, this being an 11-year-old, and, well, Selene.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Elio's Blue Oni. Also a Red Oni to Pueo's Blue Oni.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Platonic example; energetic girl to Elio's savvy guy.

Selene's Pokémon

Rotom Pokédex, AKA Dex

Debuted in: Alola! (Episode 19)
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Troll) (Level 5)
"Bzzzt! Whoops, looks like I'm busted!"

A mischievous Rotom who possesses the Pokédex Elio and Selene share, given to the two by Professor Kukui after becoming trainers. Technically owned by both Elio and Selene.

Pueo

Debuted in: Alola! (Episode 19)
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Level 4)
"HOO! By my tailfeathers!"

Selene's starter Pokémon, a snarky, somewhat fussy Rowlet with the birth name of "Lani", who still hadn't completely gotten used to his trainer's eccentricities at the time of his debut.

    Elio 
Debuted in: Alola! (Episode 19)
Home series/game: Pokémon Sun and Moon
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Level 3)
"Uh... Alola?"

The male player character of Pokémon Sun and Moon. An intelligent but somewhat nervous, careful, and rather precocious young Pokémon trainer and part-time Selene's Straight Man, who in his debut episode had just received his starter, a Litten, along with her. According to a throwaway line, he's apparently Selene's literal cousin (as in not just in the Alolan sense), though their dynamic is much like that of siblings.

  • Adorkable: He's ultimately a dorky, gentle, somewhat worry-prone little boy and novice trainer who had barely gone through his first day as one in his debut.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Somewhat of one, what with the way he acts around Selene, gets flustered by her calling him "Ellie", and takes responsibility, and his rather mature, yet still childish, speech patterns.
  • Call-Forward: In-universe, neither he or Selene are aware that they are protagonists, so when he says "I can't imagine what it would be like to basically have to save the world with just five guys and your Pokémon.", it comes across as really ironic. Especially because even the number of people is exactly the same, considering that both he and Selene are on the same journey, though it's mitigated by the fact that Hau misses the climax of the games' story.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: He and Pueo are essentially this to Selene. However, it's presumably mostly his job, and he's also presumably been at it for quite some time.
  • Deadpan Snarker
    • Little Miss Snarker: Gender inverted. At 11 years old, while not the snarkiest (especially compared to Toony before him), he was at the time the youngest party member over a level 3. Considering the kind of girl his cousin is, it's kind of easy to see why he would develop some sense of sarcasm.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: "Ellie", courtesy of Selene.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: See Selene's entry.
  • Like Brother and Sister: He and Selene act like fraternal twins, but are in fact cousins.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Selene's Red Oni.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Platonic example; the savvy guy to Selene's energetic girl.

Elio's Pokémon

Keahi

Debuted in: Alola! (Episode 19)
Snarker type: Playful-Caustic (Troll)(Level 4)
"Too bad, it’s too fun seeing your pained expression."

Elio's starter Pokémon, a trolling, seemingly uncaring Litten with the birth name of "Kei". He's definitely not the most kindest of Pokemon, though he does still care for his trainer and Pueo to an extent. The first of the "Playful-Caustic" class.

  • Bilingual Bonus: His nickname is Hawaiian for "the fire", while "Kei" means "pride and glory".
  • Black Comedy: A fan of this; he insinuates he wants to eat Pueo, tells Scouter he enjoys seeing him suffer, and tries to tell Elio and Selene what sex is twice.
  • Cats Are Snarkers
  • Cats Are Mean: A pretty good example. He's apparently based off of Tom from Peep and the Big Wide World, the author's favorite show as a small child, and said character is the closest thing to an antagonist in that series.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Foil: The mean, rather douchey starter Pokémon to a dorky, kindhearted, straight-laced trainer.
  • Jerkass: While not too bad, he’s still kind of an ass.
  • Pokémon Speak: Once again, averted. He meows, but never says "Litten".
  • Retcon: He used to be a stoic, even gentlemanly Pokémon before the big edits of 2018.
  • Translator Microbes
  • Troll: Though it more often than not is turned against his fellow party members.

    Red (Adult) 
Debuted in: Alola! Part 2: Electric Boogaloo (Episode 20)
Home series/game: Pokémon
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Silent) (Level 5)
"..."

20 year old legendary Pokémon trainer, former (at the time of debut) Smasher and player character of the original Pokémon games, an old friend of Ness's back in Brawl and current boss of the Battle Tree alongside his old rival Blue, admired by many younger Pokémon trainers novice and veteran alike, including Calem. The trainer of Yellow, the Pikachu currently in Smash, albeit said Pokémon actually being a past version of him (It's complicated). He isn't a man of many words, though that doesn't stop him from silently riffing whatever he's reading and Blue's brash behavior; and apparently, he has become slightly more comfortable with speaking since the Smashers last knew him. Making his debut alongside childhood friends Blue and Leaf, the three of them share a very close bond that also often factors into jokes, and the two also usually serve as his "translators", so to speak.

  • The Ace: Back in his homeworld, definitely. He's pretty much a living legend, and even Calem references him as the "Pallet Prodigy" and admires him quite a bit.
  • Adorkable: Has his moments. Especially when he talks.
  • Brainy Brunette: Male version; well, it can be either black or brown, it's a bit hard to tell. He's shown to be fairly intelligent, seen fully listening to a tangent on weaponry Samus and Robin go off on in his debut episode.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The way he and Leaf interact with Blue can invoke them being tsukkomis to Blue's boke.
  • Character Tic: Has a habit of adjusting his hat.
  • Cute Mute: Comes across like one in some of his more Adorkable moments.
  • Deadpan Snarker
    • Silent Snarker: Pretty much his signature style, as every other silent protagonist speaks in this commentary, including Link. He says almost everything entirely via hand gestures, his friends "translating" for him, expressions, and holding up signs a-la Wile E. Coyote.
  • In-Series Nickname: Leaf calls him "Bro". Calem also calls him once by a Red Baron, "Pallet Prodigy".
  • Hand Signals: Can communicate to Leaf and Blue at least using sign language; it's not used in the commentary proper however.
  • Red Baron: No pun intended; according to Calem, he's also known as "The Pallet Prodigy".
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Irony time; he's Blue Oni to Blue's Red Oni, with Leaf in the middle.
  • The Silent Bob
  • Ship Tease: A slight one with Leaf; at the end of his debut episode, Leaf hugs him, with the both of them blushing when Palutena teases them about it.
  • Sleepyhead: It's implied that he was sleeping, or at least dozing, offscreen before appearing on-camera in his debut episode.
  • The Spock: To Blue's McCoy and Leaf's Kirk.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: He and Blue are essentially this, him being the Straight Man to Blue's Wise Guy.
  • Talking with Signs: Uses these quite often; where he gets the sign from is never explained, though it's presumably from the Hammerspace that all Pokémon trainers seem to have in their bags.
  • The Voiceless: Somewhere between this and The Quiet One. He almost never speaks, so much so that when he utters one word (very quietly no less) almost everyone in the room instantly reacts in shock, including those who know him from Brawl. If something is particularly bad or confusing, or if it would make the moment better, however, he may say a few words, but that's the most you will get out of him. Rush is the only party member who shares this trope with him, and he really didn't contribute much at all.
  • When He Smiles: Rarely smiles, but when he does... Dawwww.

Red's Pokémon

Yellow

Debuted in: Alola! Part 2: Electric Boogaloo (Episode 20)
Snarker type: Playful Snarker (Level 2.5)
"Pika-CHU!"

Red's signature Pikachu and longtime Smasher, named after Pokémon Yellow (no relation to the Pokémon Adventures character), and also called his birth name "Dash" by Ness. A cheerful, somewhat childish Pokémon but veteran fighter, he also has a strong bond with Samus and by proxy the Kid Icarus Smashers. Actually the future self of the one currently in Smash.

  • Early-Bird Cameo: Technically debuted in episode 16, cameoing as his younger self bringing in some supplies.
  • Foil: Serves as one to Red, being cheerful and relatively innocent while his trainer is reserved and really, really quiet.
  • Keet: Though he calms down after the intro, he's pretty much bouncing all over the place in it, not having seen the Smashers for a long time.
  • Manchild: While he's not too immature, he can still be childish, and is apparently an adult, considering it having been 10 years since he was first caught and all.
  • Nice Hat: Wears his trainer's classic hat on his head.
  • Nice Guy: Generally pretty sweet and kind, and he is nowhere near as sarcastic as the trainers, though he has his moments.
  • Pokémon Speak: May be the only Pokémon to actually play this straight when untranslated. Indeed, Pikachu is the only species to consistently play this trope straight in all forms of recent media.
  • Never the Selves Shall Meet: Discussed; while it's not known what came of it, it's questioned if it's okay for him to meet his past self currently in Smash.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: Has apparently been with Red so long that he can fully understand what he's saying, and tries to show this off in his debut, though Leaf is so used to it she accidentally does it instead, much to his displeasure.

    Blue Oak (Adult) 
Debuted in: Alola! Part 2: Electric Boogaloo (Episode 20)
Home series/game: Pokémon
Snarker type: Playful-Relaxed Snarker (Level 5)
"Alola, and Bonjour!"

The 20 year old, flashy, wisecracking, heartthrob playboy gym leader of the Viridian Gym, Red's former rival, and current boss of the Battle Tree alongside said former rival. A childhood friend of Red and Leaf, while he may not be as highly-regarded as the former, he still has a strong reputation as a powerful trainer back home; and unlike Red he is extremely vocal about what he thinks. He is also well aware of his popularity and good looks, and is quite fond of flirting with various women purely to see how they react, unfortunately for poor Erika. He was introduced alongside Red and Leaf, and is by far the most loud and wisecrack-y out of the three, often getting Dope Slaps for his troubles from the other two and having a sense of humor that can get rather immature.

  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The frequency at which he gets smacked, slapped, and snarked at by Red and Leaf invokes this, him being the boke to the other two members of the Kanto trio.
  • Butt-Monkey: He gets smacked and slapped quite frequently by both Red and Leaf, his jokes can fail hard, he apparently screamed like a girl when he first saw the Hands, and Leaf likes to make jokes at his expense. It's even implied she may have taped him when he got drunk once.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Just because he’s a flirt doesn’t mean he treats women badly.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Fratbro: Downplayed; he isn't uncultured per se, and acts more suave than a typical example of the trope, but it's implied he has gotten drunk quite a few times since he turned of age (the second line he says after the commentary starts is him questioning whether he drank too much cocktails last night, and he has apparently gotten a hangover more than once), and is quite fond of flirting and skirt-chasing, as well as being likely to laugh explosively at the immature spelling "errors" present at seemingly every corner.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: He thinks so, it seems. Though he draws the line at anyone not over the age of 16 or "under an IQ of 10".
  • Gratuitous French: He visited Kalos a few years ago, so he can speak Kalosian. According to Calem, it's Surprisingly Good Kalosian.
  • Handsome Lech: He's well aware of how attractive he is, and goes out of his way to flirt with every single female commentator in the party not Leaf in his debut, albeit mostly for the purpose of messing with people. On top of this, he's also by far the most dirty-minded of the trio, being rather quick to jump on Accidental Innuendo, all the while keeping his slick image; as opposed to Calem, who despite laughing at some immature jokes due to being a teenager, doesn't deliberately make as many references to sex.
  • I Hate Past Me: He knows pretty well that he was a massive douche as a kid.
  • The McCoy: To Red's Spock and Leaf's Kirk.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Has apparently happened to him before multiple times, in reference to shipping him with Red being incredibly popular in the fandom. According to Word of God, this version of Blue at least is "straight as a ramp", so he expresses annoyance of this.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Irony time; he's Red Oni to Red's Blue Oni, with Leaf in the middle.
  • Reformed Bully: He’s become a much nicer person overall, if still a snarky loudmouth.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Apparently did one back in Brawl when seeing the Hands for the first time. And by the looks of it, pretty much everyone in the vincity heard him.
  • Self-Deprecation: One way that it's shown how far he's come since Generation 1 is that he is perfectly willing to make jokes at his own expense.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: Pretty much the Wise Guy to Red's Straight Man.
  • The Tease: And probably the best male example in the commentary.
  • Troll: He sees that Erika is clearly horny from Red petting her, what does he do? Why, flirt with her in an ambiguously sexual way, of course! With somewhat predictable results.

    Leaf (Adult) 
Debuted in: Alola! Part 2: Electric Boogaloo (Episode 20)
Snarker type: Deadpan-Relaxed Snarker (Level 5)
"I... Have so many questions."

A 20 year old, kind but sarcastic Pokémon trainer who tagged along with Red and Blue when they were summoned to Alola, based off of the female player character in Fire Red and Leaf Green. While she has never appeared after her debut in the games proper, here she is depicted as the very close and trusted childhood friend of Red and Blue, striking a balance between the two in terms of both personality and Snarking style. While she is a sweet woman, she also possesses a really sharp tongue; and if it isn't directed at the fic, it's most likely directed at Blue.

  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The way she and Red interact with Blue can invoke them being tsukkomis to Blue's boke.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Fusing Of The Branches: In main Pokemon canon, she doesn't really exist, merely serving as an alternate player character option in Fire Red and Leaf Green and being subsequently mostly forgotten. Here, she exists as her own separate character alongside Red.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: Can apparently understand what Red is trying to say with gestures alone, and usually does so, though Yellow tries to take over in his debut.
  • Ship Tease: With Red at the end of her debut episode; she hugs Red, with the both of them blushing when Palutena teases them about it.
  • Troll: When it comes to Blue, mostly.

    Ike 
Debuted in: PLLLLAAANNNESSS! The Spring Break Express! (Episode 22)
Home series/game: Fire Emblem Tellius series
Snarker type: Deadpan Snarker (Level 5)
"Whelp. That's just brilliant. I would've blown the place up from the get-go, but that works too."

A somewhat gruff 21-year-old mercenary, also known as "The Radiant Hero", hero of the 9th Fire Emblem game, co-hero of the 10th, and Smasher since Brawl. The 6th Fire Emblem character to be introduced in the commentary, he is also one of the most potent, becoming a permanent member for the rest of the run. A somewhat jaded, extremely frank, rough-talking but still kind soldier, he isn't really phased by much, having a "been there, done that" attitude to a lot of things much like Ness and Samus. Naturally, he seems to be closest to the other characters from his series and the other swordsmen, as well as Samus.

  • Asexuality: According to erikatheraindeer, Ike, at least in her headcanon, is asexual, just like Samus. He also seems to be utterly clueless about sexuality, or even what it is, especially for his age.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": The guy apparently can't act whatsoever. Considering his honesty and how bad the voice acting was in his game (and in Smash itself), it's not too unexpected.
  • Big Eater: He goes through two whole bags of popcorn in Episode 23 before the episode even ends. And by the way no one except Calem is surprised, everyone is completely used to it. And in Episode 26, he’s seen eating a leg of ham from the outset.
  • Chaste Hero: Ike was always a pretty good example of these, but here it's expanded so that despite seeing so much horrible violence throughout his at least 3 year career that it doesn't even phase him anymore, it's heavily implied he's shockingly innocent about even where babies come from; he's probably about on par with Rock, a Robot Kid who thinks and acts like a 10-year-old, if not worse. Granted, it's also implied Sonic and Pit don't know either, but it stands out even more when it's the deadpan 21-year-old grown man and war veteran, as opposed to the cartoon hedgehog or preteen angel boy.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A level 5, at that. Much like his home game, his default reaction to stupidity is sarcasm, which has only sharpened with experience. The quote above is only one of many examples.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Really downplayed example. Ultimately, he's an idealist, but that doesn't stop him from snarking at everything, and he's much more cynical than, say, Sonic, (especially) Rock, or even Robin or Chrom, well aware from seeing firsthand many times how horrible the world can be and accepting of it, but never really coming off as a Jerkass.
  • Nausea Dissonance: He very casually reminisces about how he's killed people, seen them die in "a hundred ways", and their bodies mangled in really gruesome ways while on the job in Episode 23. While eating popcorn. He doesn't even seem to immediately realize how that's info most people would be, well, grossed out by, due to the fact he's been completely desensitized to it. Granted, Robin, Chrom, and Samus aren't grossed out that much either, the former two also being soldiers in two wars and the latter a very experienced bounty hunter; and neither is Ness for that matter.
  • The Snack Is More Interesting: More than rarely seen munching on something.
  • Younger Than They Look: Lampshaded in Episode 22. Scouter notes how he looks at least 30, and this exchange happens.
    Ike: I get that a lot.
    Calem: Attendez... you're 21?!
    Ike: *scratches head* ...Do I really look that old though?
    • Granted, one can't blame them, with how the way he acts doing no favors for him either.
  • Red Baron: "The Radiant Hero".
  • Seen It All: Or at least so he thought.
  • The Stoic: He keeps a deadpan, rather blasé attitude the vast majority of the time.

Antagonists

     Sara-Sue 
Debuted in: A load of Smash B***s (Episode 24)
A floating ball of light that represents Sara. She makes an appearance at the end of episode 24, potentially teasing her as an Arc Villain...until she's curbstomped at the beginning of episode 25, never to be heard from again.
