- "Hi, I'm Jean-Kévin, I'm 14 and I come from jeuxvideo.com! Where is Azur?"
Jean-Kévin is the archetype of the annoying noob who regulary invades the Minefield server. He has the default skin (probably because he hacked the game), has a puberty voice and can't speak, read or write properly.
He came from Bob's experience of Minecraft, where he met a lot of young teens with a bad syntax and attitude. Bob still continues to call noobs "Jean-Kévins" with a "Mexican avatar".
- Butt-Monkey: Due to his ineptitude and his regular fails, he is often the victim of mockeries from Bob and Smurf Lennon.
- Loony Fan: At the beginning of the Bob Lennon Show, he was just an enthousiast (but extremely annoying) fanboy, claiming to be Bob's biggest fan.
- In the rest of the series, he becomes more an archetype of the hater, due to Bob's rejectal.
- Signature Laugh: "Olololol!!!1"
- Straw Loser: Every attempt to impress or defeat Bob Lennon ends in failure.
- Took a Level in Badass: In X-COM, as Captain Kevin McJean. He still don't get respect though, as Bob doesn't even notice his death on the battlefield.
- "Where is it, dudes? I'm here to deliver my Smurf friends captured by a couscous box!"
A simple Smurf, companion of Bob Lennon. Smurf Lennon is the representation of the rest of Bob fans: he is sometimes annoying, Bob sometimes likes to tease him, but in the end they're friends and united against Jean-Kévin.
Bob still uses this voice to speak as a dumb character or to impersonate andience complains. Papa Smurf and Smurfette were planned, but eventually scrapped after the cancellation of the series. Only remains some samples of them Bob teased in the regular Minecraft episodes.
- Butt-Monkey: Mostly at the beginning. Then, he and Bob have a more friendly relationship, but Smurf Lennon is still a bit abused.
- Original Character: Smurf Lennon is a basic Smurf with no apparent specific abilities.
- "KAKAKA! Hi, Lennon! I'm here, Lennon!"
The Skull is a character created by Bob Lennon during his Skyrim playthrough, when he realised the skulls randomly disposed in the world had a movable jaw, and that shaking a skull up and down made it look like it was talking. The first time, he just did a The Twelve Tasks Of Astérix shout-out, but eventually did it more and more, developping each time a true personnality to the character.
- Animate Inanimate Object: He likes to confuse Bob by bringing the possibility that all these conversations might happen in Bob's head who would have actually lost his mind.
- The Cameo: He regulary "appears" in other video games Bob plays: Tenchu Z, Resident Evil 6, Brütal Legend, etc. In fact, Bob can't help but do the Skull voice everytime he spots a skull.
- Dem Bones: Prior the final fight against Alduin, Bob installed a mod who can turn regular skulls into Flaming Skulls and collected about twenty of them. Then he released them on Alduin.
- Bob even dubbed the episode in post-production to voice multiples skulls in the same time.
- Dirty Coward: Did nothing to prevent Kodlak's murder. He even took the bets.
- Dirty Old Man: He's a skeleton, so he's technically old? Anyway, he's always looking for Lydia's "twins".
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep"
- Flying Face: That's basically all he is, but he seems to move only when Bob is around.
- Hurricane of Puns: Most of the time about bones and heads.
- Large Ham
- My Rules Are Not Your Rules: Play to Backgammon with Chess pieces.
- President Evil: Thankfully averted (he lost the election). He however had some catchy promises such as "knee armors for every guards" and "buy one Poupet, get a free Lydia".
- Though he's not really evil, but certainely not a trustable guy. In fact a perfect politician.
- Running Gag: What the character is.
- Signature Laugh: "KAKAKAKAKAKA!!"
- Troll: He always tries to discourage Bob by higlighting his failures or foreshadowing his imminent death."No!! Please, no kidding, don't do that! (dropped) You bitch! Argh..."
- Not to confuse with the Troll Skull, who is a variation of the Skull with a deeper voice.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: He and his large family share a striking facial similarity.
Lydia is the first follower the player get in Skyrim and became quicly a fan favorite. Bob and his audience are no exception to the rule.
- Casual Interstellar Travel: The time she got smacked by a giant.Bob: "SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!!"
- Clingy Jealous Girl: According to Bob, she is extremely jealous of Ysolda.
- Stripperiffic: Bob gave her some suggestive armor clothes revealing her sideboobs.
- Undying Loyalty: Despite all the terrible actions regulary perpetuated by Bob, she stays extremely loyal to her thane.
Kharjo is a Khajiit (actually one of the few the player can get in his team) and Bob's main follower. Bob's fondness for felines made him immediatly more affected by Kharjo's problems, whereas he usually doesn't care for others problems. After Kharjo's quest, he immediatly jumped on the occasion to have him in his team.
- Beleaguered Assistant: Kharjo has to follow Bob in all the troubles he gets impulsively into. Bob occasionally likes to prank him, pushing him in ravines and stuff.
- Burn the Witch!: Due to a very peculiar case of Offscreen Teleportation on his part that made him reappear behind a locked door, Bob panicked and Fus Ro Dah'd him into a ravine while accusing him of using Black Magic.
- Covert Pervert: After moving houses, Bob finds him in a room, alone with an half-naked Aela. His first response is to claim that he is "protecting the others", but Bob doesn't buy it and Fus Ro Dah's him on the wall.Bob: *imitating Kharjo's voice* I'm protecting the others with my penis!
- Cute Bruiser: In Bob's opinion, anyway. Mainly because he's a cat, and wearing heavy armor doesn't make him less "cute".
- Eyepatch of Power (see Rule of Cool)
- First Day from Hell: He gets hired by Bob at the end of the 99th episode, and his very first adventure was the more than two hours long special 100th episode.
- Interspecies Romance: With Aela the Huntress.
- Made of Iron: Can whitstand being shouted from the top of a mountain just fine.
- Nice Guy: He always has a nice word for Bob wishing him peace and safety, in contrast of most of the NPC who are mean to Bob and threaten him, which makes Bob claim that khajiits are superior to other races.
- Only Sane Man: He seems to be the only one in this game to have a calm point of view of the world, especially in contrast of Bob.
- Really 700 Years Old: Due to a bug, Kharjo appeared in a flashback sequence. After being really shocked, Bob accepted this as canon.
- Rule of Cool: During the playthrough, Bob suddenly lost Kharjo in a Dwemer Cave, and he though Kharjo perished for unknown reasons. He later found him off-screen, and decided to give him an eyepatch, pretending he got severly injured in this cave. Of course, this is not the case, but Kharjo wears it anyway to please Bob.
Bob's in-game wife, a merchant from Whiterun. Ysolda currently lives in his mansion in Lakeview, not doing much except gathering money, milling around and occasionally being Fus Ro Dah'd all over the place by her husband everytime he comes home.
- Ascended Extra: Bob only met Ysolda a few times before and she was barely important to the plot, though he immediatly noticed she was pretty, usually calling most of the NPCs uglies.
- The Chew Toy: It became tradition for Bob and his audiance to beat the crap out of Ysolda. But all of this is just for the laugh, and Bob seems to be very nice with his real wife.
- Domestic Abuse: "Hello my love. Back from some grand adventure I b-" "FUS RO DAH!!!"
- Love Martyr: She has never ever been mad at Bob for anything he did to her. The audiance can genuinely wonder why she stays with him...Oh wait!
Bob's adoptive Khajiit daughter, who he came across in a remote fisher's house in the middle of nowhere. His fondness for both cats and cute kids set his protective instincts into full gear, leading him to "rescue" (even though she didn't seem to be in danger, but Bob killed the imperial soldier who seemed to guard her anyway) and adopt her. He eventually trains her to become his successor.
- Badass Adorable: Who's a cute dragon-slaying catgirl kitty ?
- Little Miss Badass: Despite being a little girl, she's still able to fend for herself in a fight.
- Training from Hell: The kind of abuse she goes through during her Training Montage would already be enough to permanently cripple a grown adult or even outright kill them.
- Training Montage: Has an epic one based on I'll Make A Man Out Of You.
Originally Calder, an housecarl put under Bob's orders by Ulfric Stormcloak, and was "tasked" to guard Bob's mansion in Windhelm permanently. Got upgraded into C4LD3R Unit when Bob gave him a set of modded Dwemer armor, mostly to diminish his unsightlyness.
Erik The Slayer
A farmer form Rorikburg who dreamed of being an adventurer. Eventually got the chance to realise his dreams after Bob completed his sidequest and hired him. While currently living in Bob's mansion along with his other companions, he is probably his second most appreciated ally.
Ma'rakkaBob's adopted Khajiit son and overall third adopted child. Like Ma'isha, Bob adopted him on sight simply because he was a Khajiit.
The Minas Tirith Octopus
During the visit of a Minecraft map reproducing Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings, Bob encountered a random squid in a one bloc-sized water pool, the poor animal stuck in this small aquarium. Bob, amused by this situation, called him the Minas Tirith Octopus, guard of the citadel. In later videos, he encountered others random squids, sometimes in the same situation, and occasionally assumed it was the same squid who followed him since Minas Tirith.
- Deathbringer the Adorable: Despite Bob's description, it's just a harmless squid.
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: The decision to hire a squid as a city guard is questionable. The MTO himself probably never asked for this.
- Last Stand: According to Bob, the city is uninhabited due to Mordor's attack. Only remains the octopus, who bravely stands his post to defend the city against the forces of evil.
- Stalker Without a Crush: The MTO follows Fanta and Bob for unknown reasons. Though he may feels lonely.
- "One down, thousands more to go."

- Minor Injury Overreaction: After a battle, while his teammates suffer serious injuries from the direct fight with the enemy crew, Gaston (who was in the cockpit the whole time) comes to the infirmery to treat his ingrown toenail.
- The Slacker: Turns quite into one in FTL due to have nothing else to do than piloting the ship and playing World of Warcraft.
- Space Madness: After a month of loneliness in the cockpit, he tried to go for a wander...in space.
- Theme Tune: Actually simply the original X-COM theme with some "Gaston Dreyfuuuuuus" here and there. See for yourself.
First appearing in XCOM 2, Gaston Poklonskaya is the son of Gaston Dreyfus and Natalia Poklonskaya who tries to follow into his parents' steps in heroically defending Earth from the alien invaders. He's a bit nervous to go to battle against the aliens at first, but eventually becomes more cocky after getting some experience.

- Butt-Monkey: Insecateur was several times threatened to be sent in space if he would not follow the orders.
- Both Sides Have a Point:
- Discount Gays / Interspecies Romance: Charlie x Optimus
- Everyone Calls Her Barkeep: FEMME.
- Five-Man Band / Badass Crew
- Heroic Sacrifice / Suicide Mission: Optimus and Insecateur stayed in the flagship to blew it from the inside. The world will never forget their courage.
- Awful Truth: Some sources affirm this was actually a Stupid Sacrifice because the ally ship weaponry was enough to destroy the flagship, other even dare say this was actually Gaston who send them to their death by pure hatred, but these guys are LIARS, DO YOU HEAR ME?!!
- Also, Optimus died for our sins.
- Sacrificial Lamb: Teldarin was found on the desertic planet after his ship's crash...only to be killed seven minutes later by an other refugee gone mad.
- Sinister Scythes As Hands: Despite being a deadly Mantis assassin on the battlefield, he is made fun of for having no arms and so being unable to repair damages or even prepare coffea.

Zombie Shigeru Miyamoto
In Resident Evil 6, one of the random stock zombie you can encounters in China looks like Shigeru Miyamoto according to Bob, who lampshades him everytime he encounters him. Bob subverted the Running Gag himself (consciously?) by calling him Hideo Kojima in the very last bonus episode.
- Celebrity Resemblance: That's probably just a coincidence...or is it?
- Harmless Villain: He is one of the most basic enemies, so weak that Bob is sometimes actually looking for him to pick the ammos he drops.
- Interchangeable Asian Cultures: Miyamoto is Japanese, but the zombie is actually Chinese. Bob is aware of this, but don't care.
- Say My Name:Bob: SHIGERUUUUUUUUUU!!!
- Stalker Without a Crush: There are a lot of brains in the world, but Miyamoto seems to only be after Bob and Fanta.
- They Killed Kenny Again: The character being actually a stock ennemy, Bob kills him repetitively but he keeps coming back over and over.
Antonin the Gondorian
- "Rise, Ranger! Minas Ithil needs you!"
Originally a simple unnamed Gondorian Sergeant in Shadow of War dubbed Antonin the Gondorian by Bob after the former saved the latter from an Uruk captain about to execute him and killed it in Episode 2. The feat was already quite impressive in itself, coming from an unnamed NPC, but he then proceeded to do it again only a few minutes later, and then a third time, managing to One-Hit Kill an almost full life level 15 Uruk captain. All in a single episode.
- Annoying Arrows: He gets hit in the arm by an Uruk crossbow at one point. His only reaction is to make a triumphant yell at the archer.
- Badass Normal: He's actually a simple Gondorian Sergeant without any special abilities. Yet, he is able to One-Hit Kill bosses.
- Badass in Distress: He's seen multiple times being a prisoner of the Uruks.
- Bash Brothers: He's often seen fighting alongside his buddy, Celestin.
- Bodyguarding a Badass: Most notable for saving a One-Man Army from near death experiences.
- Bond One-Liner: "That was an ugly one, wasn't it?"
- The Cavalry: Saves Bob multiple times from being executed by Uruks.
- Curbstomp Battle: Can One-Hit Kill bosses when rescuing Bob from executions.
- Dynamic Entry: Has a tendency to come out of nowhere to rescue Bob by impaling his would be killer.
- Leitmotif: Uses the Fellowship of the Ring's one when he saves Bob from executions. This version, to be exact.
- Mauve Shirt: While popular in Bob's fanbase, he's still just a random NPC easily killed off if he tries to fight too many Uruks at the same time. Then again, it's Shadow of War we're talking about...
- One-Hit Kill: Does this when he saves Bob from executions.
Ar-Beka the Dragon
Ar-Beka the Dragon is the first captain (excluding Bruz) Bob recruit and make into a bodyguard, the latter on Bruz's advice. Like any good Uruk or Olog worthy of his name, Ar-Beka then proceeds to betray and ambush Bob. All of this in less than three minutes. Thus, Bob began an epic quest to shame Ar-Beka back into his army. Ar-Beka eventually breaks and is rewarded for his trouble by being named overlord. Yay. Well, up until Bruz's betrayal, at least. Bob swiftly take back his fortress, but is so impressed in another captain's performance (and finishing moves on Bruz's captains) in doing so that he names him the new overlord and makes Ar-Beka a "simple" warchief.
- Badass Beard: It's hard to see because of his helmet, but it's there.
- Blessed with Suck: His Iron Will ability allows him to resist Talion's domination. Unfortunately for him, Bob is determined to break said will, by shaming him repeatedly.
- Bullying a Dragon: The Dragon thought it was a good idea to betray Talion.
- Butt-Monkey: Shaming him at least once per episode, often right at the beginning, quickly becomes a Running Gag.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: What started it all.
- Cruel Mercy: What he's a victim of.
- Demoted to Dragon: Pun unintended, but after his fort was conquered by Bruz in a story mission and Bob had to retake it, he was so impressed by another Uruk's showing in battle, he named him Overlord, and made Ar-Beka a simple Warchief.
- De-Power: After getting shamed repeatedly, he eventually loses some of his abilities. And his title.
- Subverted after he finally joined back Bob's army, Bob make him level-up to level 32 offscreen, making him regain his title and most of his abilities.
- The Dragon: Actually has it as his title (though it probably refers more to his pyromaniac tendencies than his status in Sauron's army).
- Fridge Horror: At some point after taking Nurnen's fortress, Bob decides to play around with the feature allowing him to make his own captains fight against one another in an arena. He... gets a bit overenthusiastic with it, resulting in his army having only the local overlord, a captain and Bruz alive. Ar-Beka either only escaped the slaughter because of his stubborness or missed a chance to become an overlord for the same reason. Fortunately, he actually becomes the new overlord later.
- HeelFace Brainwashing: What Bob keeps trying to do to him. He succeeds after a while.
- Heroic Willpower: He possesses a villainous variation as the Iron Will ability. This is also the reason Bob keeps shaming him.
- He also manages to never become deranged despite being shamed so many times.
- Irony: The Dragon, named this way because of his pyromaniac tendencies, becomes highly vulnerable to fire after getting shamed repeatedly.
- Kill It with Fire: Ar-Beka's main modus operandi. He's armed with a flaming mace, has a flamethrower and, before his downfall to level 1, was able to summon Drakes.
- When Bob has to defend the fortress Ar-Beka rules over against Sauron's counterattack, he decides to put only fire-based defenses (and the walls needed to resist it) just to fit the theme.
- Rugged Scar: You can see it under his helmet.
- Roaring Rampage of Rescue: At some point, he ends up in a power struggle against another captain. Not wanting his soon-to-be slav- I mean recruit to die, Bob immediately went to do the mission, shamed Ar-Beka out of the fight then proceeded to kick the other captain's ass.
- Save Scumming: Sort of. Sometimes after Ar-Beka is demoted to warchief following Bruz's betrayal, Bob decides to actually see if he's worth anything by temporarily demoting him to a simple captain and sending him to do pit fights. He absolutely crushes his opponent in the Maggot difficulty, and also manages to defeat the Warrior difficulty one relatively easily. Bob then wonder if Ar-Beka could be able to go as far as beat his opponent even in the Champion difficulty. The fight is cut, but "saved by Alt+F4" means what it means.
- Training Montage: Averted. Despite Bob being fond of making some music videos for his playthrough here and there, which includes training montages (or something similar to a training montage), the most notable being the one where he trains Ma'isha in Skyrim, when he finally manages to recruit Ar-Beka, who is only level 6 by then, and only because he sent him a death threat, he trains him back to level 32 between episodes, but does so without recording it. He doesn't even do it in a livestream, making even fanmade ones impossible.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: After being shamed over and over again, he ultimately breaks and is forcefully recruited in Bob's army. Despite being level 6 at that point (and only because of a death threat), Bob first appoints him to be his bodyguard, then later decide to make him warchief, only to change his mind immediately and make him an overlord.
- And then between episodes 16 and 17 he made him level up to level 32, making him more powerful than he ever was. (albeit still with some of the crippling traits he gained after his repeated shaming)
- Undying Loyalty: Not only he refuses to kneel before Talion out of sheer (un)Heroic Willpower despite being humiliated over and over again, he does so while boasting about his devotion to Sauron and praising him.
- Even after he breaks and joins Talion's army, he still claim his devotion to Sauron is what gives him strenght.
