    Max G 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/max_g.png
The host of Brain Dump.
  • At Least I Admit It: During his Moana, when Goofball notes how Max's reviews seem to be colored by his own failings, Max retorts that he could either claim to be impartial (which he considers impossible), or admit to his own biases.
    • He is also frequently called a creep by Goofball multiple times. He admits it in an outburst in his Creep review.
  • Author Avatar: Is simply Max Gilardi as a cartoon.
  • Broken Tears: At the end of "DEADPOOL IS SCAMMING YOU", Max cries the "Lite Brite" jingle as he constructs Burnbots face with Lite Brite pegs.
  • The Dog Bites Back: When Goofball comes to annoy/ridicule Max, he usually doesn't really do anything to stop him. However, there are a few instances where he finally retaliates.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Never wears shoes since he's always in his living room.
  • Evil Laugh: Pulls off an impressive one when he points out that some viewers might think he is not the best person to discuss racial and social issues, as he is, after all, one of the "most evil kinds of person" in existence: A straight, white male.
  • Glamour Failure: Played for Laughs, as his Evil Laugh above causes him to gradually adopt a demonic appearance (with red skin, sharp teeth and horns) until it suddenly stops, leaving him with just the latter.
    Max: ...Sorry, usually we try to keep these things hidden. (pushes horns back into his head)
  • Halloween Cosplay: Dresses up as Jack Skellington in the Ghostbusters episode.
  • Jerkass Ball: In "TOP 10 REASONS WHY THE GRINCH IS BULLSHIT", Max continuously tells Goofball — to Burnbot's face — that, not only is she an inanimate object, but she can't think or feel, despite her apparent negative reaction to such statements. He continues to make these statements after she's electrocuted him, causing her to be driven away.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After he tries to blame Goofball for driving Burnbot away, Goofball reminds him that it is indeed Max's fault.
    Goofball: You can't blame this on me! This is what you get for being a pompous jackass who's always trying to prove he's smarter than everyone else! "Diodes, capacitors, and resistors, interconnections and transistors"!
    Max: (A look of horror grows on his face as Goofball is saying this)
  • Self-Deprecation / Loser Protagonist: Half of the series' comedy stems from Max's joking self-loathing.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: In the Sausage Party episode, Max spends half of the episode boasting about hosting the "#1 show on the internet". It turns out this was a simple miscalculation by Burnbot.
  • The Sociopath: Due to his intense love for violence in his entertainment, Max's Self-Deprecation frequently mentions that he's a dangerous sociopath.

    Burnbot

Max's lovely television assistant.
  • Berserk Button: Snaps her usual pleasant and sophisticated exterior when Max calls her a "chick".
  • The Cutie: Just look at that adorable smile.
  • Flower in Her Hair: The digital face that displays on her screen has a little flower at the top-left corner.
  • Good Bad Girl: Is having a sordid, sexually charged relationship with Max's Microwave against his wishes.
    "MY BODY, MY RULES. DEAL W/ IT."
  • Halloween Cosplay: "Dresses up" as a scarecrow in the Ghostbusters episode.
  • Lovely Assistant: To Max.
  • New Year's Resolution: Her 2016 one is to swear more frequently.
    • Her auto-generated insult at the end of the episode is just a gigantic swear-fest, with max commenting on her need to make a sentence.
  • Not So Above It All: While she is usually quiet and pleasant, she joins in on Goofball's constant insulting of Max by using the adjective "socially oblivious" to describe him.
    • During the end of 2016 video, she and Goofball both enjoy a giggle when Max accidentally say the word "hard on" in a sentence.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She drives away from Max's house at the end of TOP 10 REASONS THE GRINCH IS BULLSHIT after deciding she's had enough of his insensitive remarks.
  • Lady Swears-A-Lot: Issues a comically over-the-top insult at the end of each episode.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Despite her usual Spock Speak, she says "Who you calling 'chick', dicknose?" to Max in the Halloween episode.
  • Spock Speak: If her letter had a few more degrees of sophistication, it'd qualify as Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness. She is a computer, after all.
  • Token Good Teammate: The show goes out of its way to remind you how much of an insufferable, socially awkward loser Max is and how much of a spiteful, annoying Jerkass Goofball is, but Burnbot is just a typical, if rather foul-mouthed and snarky, Lovely Assistant in television-form.
  • The Voiceless: Can only talk through text.
