The Main Cast




  • Clothing Switch: At the end of 'VRcade', she gets a hair ribbon, a short-sleeved white shirt, purple shorts, and pink leg and armbands.
  • Nice Gal: Gentle and caring, especially when it comes to Koden.
  • Official Couple: With Koden, the other Only Sane Man
  • Only Sane Man: Along with Koden, but she doesn't display this trait due to not saying much.
  • Space Is Magic: She, oddly, has powers over space.
    • Blinded by the Light: She can blind her opponents by summoning a Quasar.
    • Flaming Meteor: She can summon a giant flaming meteor.
    • Gravity Sucks: She can generate a black hole...but it takes awhile to form. She has to run around the rings of a miniature Saturn to create it.
    • Space Is Cold / An Ice Person: She can freeze her opponents by summoning the Boomerang Nebula.
  • The Conscience: She tries to coax the more abrasive characters, like Alex and Killer, into being nice and doing the right thing.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't say much, and when she does, its usually to quell the more obnoxious members of the group.


    Fire Guy 



  • A Dog Named "Dog"
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He isn't very fond of Perry, because he thinks Snake is trying to use him as a "replacement".
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Even refers to himself, Bear, Snake, and Balloon as such in the Special Info Episode. All of them are child characters who get into mischief as kids will do.
  • Little Miss Snarker: A male example. He is by far the most sarcastic of the four "kids". For example:
    Duck: Snake, why couldn't you have gotten a hamster or a goldfish or something that CAN'T talk from that pet store instead of HIM? (Perry)
  • Living Toys: A living wooden duck toy, not a rubber ducky as Alex thought.
  • No Indoor Voice: And it goes well with his somewhat short-tempered attitude.
  • Sore Loser: Not as much as Alex, but he's still not a good sport. For example, he more-or-less implies that Snake and Duck were cheating when they beat him in the game they were all playing in VRcade


  • Acting Your Intellectual Age: Even though he is the same Vague Age as Bear, Duck, and Balloon, he is far more mature and sensible than they are.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Killdra points this out in 'The Party'.
  • Black Bead Eyes
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Not as much as Bear, Duck, and Balloon, though. All of them are child characters who get into mischief as kids will do.
  • Not So Above It All: As often as he tries to control Bear, Duck, and Balloon, he usually finds himself getting into mischief with them anyway.
  • Promotion to Parent: He is like this to Bear, Duck, and Balloon since their father is never on-screen. He keeps them from getting into too much trouble.
    Bear: Face it, Duck. Without Snake, we'd be all dead.
  • Sssssnake Talk: His speech is persistently stacked with 'S'es as a result.
  • Talking Animal



  • Arbitrary Skepticism: He'll sometimes point out the impossibility of certain things, despite previously encountering those very same things.
  • Ascended Extra: Merely made a last-minute cameo in episode 1, then became a full-fledged character.
  • Cute Machines: He's a little robot with big eyes and giant wheels.
  • Eye Beams: Although they aren't that powerful.
  • Funny Robot: He's a robot in a comedy series, its a given.
  • Insufferable Genius: He has signs of this, such as finding it frustrating when someone rephrases his wordy explanations, and sticking with the original meanings of certain words despite not being Literal-Minded.
  • Robot Buddy: Although some others might consider him a little annoying instead of a cute companion.
  • Robot Dog: Gets one as a prize at the end of 'VRcade'.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He has an annoyingly verbose vocabulary.
  • Super Drowning Skills: He won't short-out in water, he just can't swim.


  • Aloof Twin Brother: He is very distant and rather cold towards Killdra.
  • Twin Brother Instinct: It may seem like he doesn't care for his twin sister, but he'll defend her if he finds the need to.
  • Blood Knight: He really likes to fight, and the more brutal the fight, the better.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Not necessarily lazy, but more like uncaring. Whenever someone asks him to solve a problem he has a solution to, he'll just mock them and do nothing.
  • Charged Attack: He surrounds himself in a green bubble, creates six crossed slashes in front of himself, and fires them all at once.
  • The Comically Serious: His brooding, serious attitude is in sharp contrast to the more expressive members of the cast.
  • Energy Ball: He can fire green energy blasts.
  • Goth: Just look at all the spikes he's covered in! He's even got the gloomy personality to boot.
  • Half-Identical Twins: With Killdra. Both of them are sarcastic goths who wear orange.
  • Nice Hat: Even moreso than Koden's, its covered in spikes!
  • Non-Indicative Name: He may be a cold and distant Blood Knight, but he is not a murderer.
  • Ineffectual Loner: He's honestly pretty cool, but doesn't get along with others because of his Brilliant, but Lazy and snappy attitude.
  • Power Crystal: He carries a green one around that allows him to warp. It also presumably powers his energy blasts.
  • The Stoic: He always speaks with a deep monotone, and barely emotes.
  • The Quiet One: He doesn't say a whole lot, and when he does, its usually something snide or sinister.
  • Tele-Frag: Uses this tactic with Dimension Claw, like emerging out of peoples backs.
  • Teleportation: He can teleport himself and others in a flash of green light.
  • Thinking Up Portals: Dimension Claw, which he can use to emerge out of anything, including other people.


  • All Love Is Unrequited: She yearns for Killer to show her some compassion and give her time time of day, but he doesn't seem to want much to do with her. Whether her love for him goes beyond platonic is intentionally left up in the air, though...
  • Catchphrase: "Whatever."
  • Chain Pain + Variable-Length Chain: Its her power.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Her monotone voice certainly helps.
  • Emotionless Girl: On the outside, but deep down she has a passion for singing and is a little insecure.
  • Gallows Humor: She has a rather morbid sense of humor.
  • Goth: Not as much as her brother, though.
  • Half-Identical Twins: With Killer. Both of them are sarcastic goths who wear orange.
  • Hidden Depths: Her secret talent is singing, something nobody else had any idea of. She is very passionate about it too.
  • Hipster: She refers to pop music as 'tech-manipulated pop garbage'...but usually ends up singing it anyway.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: 'Store Story' reveals that she wants people to notice her and her talent for singing.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The dark feminine to Portica's light feminine. Killdra acts very dull and sarcastic, but she still has a girly side to her, like squeeing about music. She doesn't really like Portica because she thinks Portica is pompous and judgmental.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Perky Goth: Well, not quite the friendliest example, but she isn't a Debbie Downer like her brother is.
  • The Snark Knight: She usually has a (rather dark) quip to anything, but she is prone to Self-Deprecation too.
  • Tomboy: She's snarky, morbid, and doesn't care about much "girly" stuff.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: She has no problem admitting shes a masochist.


  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He is actually a very effective fighter, but would rather be The Load because he thinks ita funny.
  • Catchphrase: To Martha after she makes an ice-related joke, "Tee-hee, ice puns."
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He isn't above making a pervy joke or two, which is usually why Martha slaps him. He doesn't disrespect ladies, he just kind of has a pervy sense of humor.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: Quite a few times, so much with Martha that it is essentially his catch phrase.
  • Fun Personified: He makes light of even the most serious of situations.
  • The Load: Quite often, and proud of it! In fact, he usually invokes this trope because he thinks its funny.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He acts like a complete idiot because he thinks its funny, not to catch enemies off-guard.
  • Our Werebeasts Are Different: His Monster form, which is an orange humanoid creature with large wings.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: He loves being the jokester of the group, and making jokes is pretty much all he does.
  • Pungeon Master: To him, the more groan-worthy the pun, the better!
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The wise guy to Martha's straight man. He makes a dumb joke, and Martha sarcastically reacts.
  • Whip It Good: Light Rope.





  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: She's the Brains of her gal-pals, because even disregarding her psychic powers, she is clever in combat and one of the more sensible ones. Kayla's the Beauty, and Martha's the Brawn.
  • Black Magician Girl: She is very skilled with her telekinesis and Eye Beams in battle, and is always up for dispatching villains.
  • Clothing Switch: In 'Store Story', she gets a silver star-shaped hairpin, a long-sleeved purple shirt, a long purple dress with a black zigzag pattern, and white high-heels. Also, teal eyeliner for some reason.
  • Eye Beams: More like 'eye laser rings', as Boo calls them.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The light feminine to Killdra's dark feminine. Portica is still a bit of a tomboy, but she is also into jewelry, outfits, and isn't above gossiping. She doesn't really like Killdra because she thinks Killdra is creepy and weird.
  • Mind over Matter: She has telekinesis.
  • One of the Boys: She honestly gets along more with the male members of the cast. Her tough and straightforward attitude causes friction with some of the female characters, sometimes good and sometimes bad, like Kayla and Killdra.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to her BFF Kayla's girly girl. Portica is sassy, tough, and has low tolerance for stupidity.


  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: She's the Beauty of her gal-pals, because she has the traditionally "cute girly girl" personality to her, and she isn't much help in a fight or very intellegent. Martha's the Brawn, and Portica's the Brains.
  • Buffy Speak: Talks like this sometimes, like saying 'ramp truck thingy'.
  • Chest Monster: This is her main power, creating treasure chests that contain traps. She can even hide inside of them!
  • Clothing Switch: In 'Store Story', she gets a pink flower in her hair, a pink tank-top, pink shorts, and pink rollerblades.
  • Dumb Blonde: She is quite the airhead, and pretty Literal-Minded too.
  • Genki Girl: She is very chatty and hyper.
  • Hammerspace: She openly states this is where she gets her treasure chests from.
  • Lovable Coward: Not nearly as bad as Frog, but she has a habit of hiding inside of a treasure chest when the going gets tough.
  • Woman Child: She is frequent to pout or use words like 'meanie' when she doesn't like something or someone.
  • Pink Means Feminine: As of her Clothing Switch it does.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to her BFF Portica's tomboy. She is super-cheerful, will react extremely to things she finds gross, and sometimes talks like a valley girl.


    Evil Balloon 


  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Deadpan Snarker: Even in comparison to the other cast members, Cody has a quip for just about everything.
    Cody: This is gonna end badly and I'm gonna love it.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: He uses crystals in a variety of ways in battle.
  • Guttural Growler: Although there is nothing menacing about him to warrant it.
  • Hollywood Acid: He can take out potion bottles filled with an unknown acidic black liquid.
  • In the Hood: He even has a separate character model for it when he has it pulled up.


  • Ambiguously Evil: Openly admits it in 'The Camping Webisode'. A notable example of this is in 'VRcade', where he wants to keep the severd-heads-on-a-spear of his and Seth's Darkness counterparts in front of his house like in feudal Japan.
  • Blade on a Stick: Spears are his power. He can make them explode too.
  • Freudian Slip: Frequently lets it slip that he liked being evil and doing bad things. For example:
    Alex: My two bodyguards were female back in the good ol' day- I MEAN bad! Bad days! The days when I was evil!
  • Heel–Face Turn: Went through one in the past, although his Ambiguously Evil status brings into question how well it worked...
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: He's a good guy, but he's also rather violent and Ambiguously Evil.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He is bombastic, selfish, and irritable, but he can also be one of your closest friends.
  • Large Ham: He is prone to bragging, and would qualify as Evil Is Hammy if he was a straight-up villain.
  • Manchild: He is prone to throwing hissy-fits when things aren't going his (often twisted) way.
  • Odd Friendship: With Koden, the Nice Guy Only Sane Man of the group.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: While 'villain' is a bit harsh, he still makes the assumption that one of the girls chose the mall for the group to go to in 'Store Story', because "girls go clothes shopping and buy a ton of useless shit."
  • The Rival: To Seth, it even serves as his nickname to him. They are always making a competition of almost anything.
  • Serious Business: Alex takes the position as the secondary main character very seriously.
  • Sore Loser: He does not take falling even the slightest bit behind in a competition very well. Death threats WILL be made!
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Seth. They are at each others throats almost constantly, but they are still great friends.



  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: She doesn't say much and is very polite, but she will stab you with thorns if you push her too far.
  • Green Thumb: She has plant-based powers.
  • Nice Gal: Arguably the nicest character in the series, unless it involves Lisa. She is extremely polite and soft-spoken.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Asia is certainly not Asian. Knobs even points this out.
  • Prayer Pose: Always stands like this, to reflect her proper and polite demeanor.
  • Properly Paranoid: In 'Untamed and Uncut', she is worried that Lisa is going to come up out of nowhere and ruin everything as usual. She ends up being partly-right.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Lisas's Red Oni, who is always teasing her. She keeps a cool head, is very nice, and acts like proper young woman.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: She is way more effective in combat than a polite young woman like her would lead you to believe.
  • The Quiet One: The trait is there, but characters like Lisa and Julie keep her from fully becoming this.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Super?: Being the only human member from the main cast without superpowers back in the actual DSBT, this was the entire reason she was given powers in the first place.



  • Affectionate Nickname: She acts like this when calling Asia 'quirky' just to get on her nerves.
  • Catchphrase: "My my!" and referring to things as 'quirky'.
  • Clothing Switch: She shows up in 'VRcade' with a tan shirt that has a ribbon tied around its V-neck collar and a matching dress. Also, she has a tan triangle hairpin.
  • The Hedonist: She holds herself in a high regard, and trolls and makes fun of everyone else because It Amused Me.
  • Hidden Depths: As she told Asia in 'The Camping Webisode', there is a lot about her that Asia doesn't know. What exactly she is hiding has yet to be revealed though.
  • It Amused Me: The main reason why she does the things she does.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Not as much as Alex, but as Autmn points out in 'The Camping Webisode', she has some hidden kindness.
  • Large Ham: Especially when she is trolling someone, in which she will banter with extreme bravado.
  • Mama Bear: She is very protective of Sand Snake, and does not take kindly to others ordering him around or insulting him.
  • Nominal Hero: She'll fight for what is right, but only when she feels like it, and she'll often wait until the last minute to do so anyway.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Asia's Blue Oni, who she is always teasing. She is loud, a troublemaker, and rather unhelpful.
  • The Gadfly: Mainly towards Asia, but pretty much everyone is fair game for her to troll for her own amusement.
  • The Trickster: As she tells Koden and the others in 'The Camping Episode', she doesn't have anything against them, she just likes to mess with them. Especially Asia.
  • Tomboy: She is not easy to get along with, and will happily get her hands dirty.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She is a bit less antagonistic in 'The Camping Webisode', even going as far as to protect Koden's friends against Killer Monster, although she tries to justify it by saying she knows what he is going through. By 'Store Story', she has lost her violent tendencies and just sticks to being a Troll.
  • Troll: Oh BIG time! Pissing people off for her own amusement is what she likes best.

    Sand Snake 

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He can still eat, despite his head being completely separate from his body...which is made up of a bunch of floating lines.
  • Golem: He transforms into a version of this at the end of 'Beach Brawl'.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: To Lisa.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: Snake puts it best.
    Snake: It doesn't even look like a snake, it looks like a lobster trap attached to some railroad tracks.
  • Sand Worm: Meets the qualifications for one better than a snake.
  • Silicon-Based Life: Why do you think his name is Sand Snake?



Other Allies


  • Making a Splash: While not involving water directly, she can create spikes of coral.
  • Olympic Swimmer: Due to being a lifeguard and friends with WG, Corla is an incredibly great swimmer.
  • Pals with Jesus: She is presumably the right-hand-woman of Waterfall Girl, who is the more-or-less the Poseidon of series.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Not only is her hair pink, but the coral spikes she can create even are!

    Waterfall Girl 


  • Declaration of Protection: He makes it a point that no one shall harm Shawn, although the latter is certainly capable of protecting himself.
    Kerry: Nobody harms Leader Shawn!
  • Improbable Weapon User: A living shovel is his weapon of choice. (see below)
  • Number Two: To Shawn, who he is the bodyguard of.



  • Extra-ore-dinary: Metal Spin, which serves as a defense by creating a barrier of floating steel balls.
  • Officer and a Gentleman: He is the leader of some sort of squad, although it has yet to be seen, other than Kerry. He is certainly a chivalrous and polite guy too.
  • The Leader: He is the leader over a squad that has yet to be seen, other than his bodyguard, Kerry.


  • Fish People: His face looks more human than fish, though.
  • Fluffy Tamer: He owns an aquarium exhibit in the zoo, filled with creatures like White Killer Eels and Pink Fish Chargers, and all of which he has an attachment to and can call upon on a whim.
  • Making a Splash: He can create water spouts and such.
  • Olympic Swimmer: He's a fish person, so of course he's going to be a fast swimmer!






  • A Dog Named "Dog"
  • Animate Inanimate Object: He's a living spoon.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: He tries to get his boss Dave to listen to reason about how a store should be managed and how to treat customers, but Dave is too much of a short-tempered brute to listen.
  • Funny Spoon: He's a living spoon who suffers all sorts of unfortunate events.
  • Morality Pet: Averted. Even though Dave spilled out his insecurities to Spoon, he has no issues with abusing him.

  • Use Your Head: Duh. They're rams, after all.




    Ice Beast 

    Rubber Hand Boss

  • Evil Doppelgänger: Of Koden.
  • My Name Is ???: It literally is, because he was never given a name! Killdra really lays into him how ridiculous this name is.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: His name is pronounced 'Question, question, question', not 'Question mark, question mark, question mark'.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: To show that he's evil, its the only thing that separates him from Koden. Killdra even thinks he's just Koden high on drugs at first.

  • Hoised By Her Own Petard: If anyone gets a hold of her mic, they can use her brainwashing music to their advantage.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Her mind-controlling music aside, she uses Killdra's love for music to trick her into singing a duet with her and amplifying her power.
  • Mind-Control Music: Its her specialty, and gets stronger the more people who join in.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Not only does her music only work on males, but if anyone gets a hold of her mic, her songs can be used against her.

How well does it match the trope?
