Played by: Adam Sandler (adult), Emilio Cast (child)
- Character Development: At the beginning of the film, he was constantly pushing away his loved ones in order to finish his work. However, after his experience with the remote showed his family members going on a deep path, he devotes himself to spend more time with his family. Best shown when he receives his remote at the end he throws it away because he knows it's not worth skipping over spending time with his loved ones.
- Formerly Fit: He was shown to be average weight at the start of the movie, though once the remote sends him to 2017, he becomes morbidly obese. This is due to his poor eating habits consisting of Twinkies and Yodels, and getting very little to no daily exercise.
- The Hero Dies: Subverted. He dies from heart failure in 2029, but Morty gives him another chance by sending back in time to the night he purchased the remote.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Like Adam Sandler's other characters, he tends to be something of a self-centered jerk, though he clearly means well for his family.
- Kick the Dog: Ironically, this is formed by his alternate self, when he tells his father to scram after wanting to show him the quarter trick. He himself is appalled by this.
- Papa Wolf: When he sees his son getting harassed by his rude neighbor over failing to catch a baseball, he pauses time in order for the baseball to fly right into the little asshole's face.
- Workaholic: Deconstructed. He mostly devotes his time solely on his job as an architect, and that ends up causing tension between him and his family. He then realizes that, thanks to the remote, this ends up becoming a horrible influence on his family.
Portrayed by: Christopher Walken
Portrayed by: Kate Beckinsale
- What the Hell, Hero?: She continuously calls out Michael for choosing to focus on work instead of spending some quality time with his family.
Portrayed by: Joseph Castanon (child), Jonah Hill (teen), Jake Hoffman (adult)
- Calling the Old Man Out: Once Michael comments how fat Ben has gotten by 2017, he calls out his father for his poor influence on him.Michael: Look how big youve grown! Youre enormous!Ben: Look whos talking, Captain Twinkie in the S.S. Fatass! Its good for my self-esteem. Maybe if you took me to Bilante's like you said you would, people wouldnt think Im Rosie O'Donnell.
- Kid-Appeal Character: He is easily a character for the kids to love.
- Nice Guy: Zigzagged. He's shown to be an outgoing kid, but in 2017, he becomes moody and emotional (though this is justified due to his father's influence on him). In 2023, however, he is shown to be back as a decent guy.
- Precision F-Strike: His grandmother becomes appalled after finding out that he just said "are you shittin' me?", just like his father.
Portrayed by: Tatum McCann (child), Lorraine Nicholson (teen), Katie Cassidy (adult)
- Bratty Teenage Daughter: In 2017, she blows up at her father for making her dress more properly and makes fun of his "boobs".
- The Cutie: She's definitely quite adorable as a kid. As a teenager, not so much; as an adult, she is back to her "Cutie" persona.
- Daddy's Girl: Downplayed. It's clear that Ben is Michael's favorite child, but he definitely loves his daughter. This is what gets her worried when she thinks he is dying soon.
- Kid-Appeal Character: As with Ben, she's enough for the children to love.
