Describe the Cast and Crew of Door Monster Here.
The Whole Crew:
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Everyone, although who is the most detached from reality varies from sketch to sketch. Kyle and Ethan fit in this role the most often.
- Deadpan Snarker: Again, everyone, usually whoever's playing the Straight Man (or woman) to the above.
Kyle C. Sullivan:
- Color Blind Confusion: Things that are green are actually invisible to him.
- Drives Like Crazy: Only when he sneezes though.
- Famous Ancestor: Averted. He wants a famous ancestor so he can live through them using technology he assembled from IKEA, yet as it's pointed out, his last name is the Irish equivalent to Smith and his line was pretty much nothing but peasants.
- The Leader: According to Word of God, does the majority of the work that goes into the channel. This shows in the sketches, where he appears more than any other single crew member.
- Official Couple: With Allison, to the point that they got married in January, 2019.
- The Lancer: Is the second most commonly appearing cast member in videos and often acts as a Foil to Kyle.
- Official Couple: With Rachel.
- Only Sane Man: The most likely to be playing this role.
- Straight Man: Going with the above, generally towards Kyle's antics.
- Overly Long Scream: In all the Kerbal Space Program videos. It's apparently louder than a Jet Engine.
- New Powers as the Plot Demands: Gains the ability to catch bullets while fighting the Agent Smith doodle.
- The Bus Came Back: Returned to the channel in 2017 after a nearly two year absence.
- The Ghost: Despite being one of the original crew members, has only appeared in a handful of videos. Word of God claims that he actually lives in an Alternate Universe, and can only briefly manifest in this one.
JP De Ovando:
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: It's what allows him to play Daredevil and generic Action Heroes so well.
- Weirdness Magnet: Everything supernatural seems to happen around him.
- Butt-Monkey: The Extortionist Hobo's favorite 'client.'
- Composite Character / I Have Many Names: Word of God confirms that the character he plays in the Extortionist Hobo skits really is named Lebron, but is referred to as Jefferey in Self Fufilling Idiocy 4.
- My Nayme Is: "Jefferey" is a relatively uncommon way of spelling the name; so much so that JP realizes that the Dasi board wouldn't have it as a programmed response.
- Really 700 Years Old: Turns out he's immortal (and a ghost), and was present during world war 2 and the last fatal duel in Ireland in 1841.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: He's not immortal!
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: When *Kyle* can play the Straight Man to you, this is true.
- Rousing Speech: Holds one in the Fourth Year finale, he motivates the other crew members to work as hard as they can.Ethan: You have the freedom to make whatever you want, and a lot of great people will still support you. Work with the industry when you have to, but no one's expecting you to become them.Kyle: But the industry makes everything possible.Ethan: The internet made Serenity possible. It brought back Community and Veronica Mars, not to mention every single Netflix, Hulu and amazon original currently in existence. Also the thousands of hours of professional quality video uploaded to youtube every day. You know what Hollywood made this year? Sherlock Gnomes! You wanna be Sherlock Gnomes?
- Straight Man: Ironically, given the above-Ethan and Kyle tend to swap back and forth between the Straight Man and the Wise Guy as needed.
- "Awesome McCool" Name: Yes, "Butcher" is her actual last name.
- Official Couple: With Ian.
- The Smurfette Principle: Downplayed. For slightly more than two years before Allison officially joined the cast, she was the only permanent female cast member (after Allison joined, it became Two Girls to a Team). However, other actresses commonly collaborated with the group, especially in the Civ vidoes.
- Ascended Extra: Had no lines in his first appearance in Avater: Battle of the Bends, and played the masked Mooks in The Guards Themselves before that.
- The New Guy: As mentioned by Rachel in WLHQ: That Part of Youtube that Joey was the newest cast member at the time of that video's creation (however, by the time of the video's release, Allison had supplanted Joey as the newest).
- Ascended Extra: Much like Joey; her first appearance on the channel was a one-line bit part. Now she probably appears in more videos than everyone except Kyle, Ian and arguably Rachel.
- Ascended Fangirl: Word of God says that she's essentially a fan of the crew that was brought in to do some Behind The Scenes work and was just never told to leave. She's also married to Kyle.
- Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality: Being raised by videogames, she thinks that the world operates like one. She even managed to breed a chocobo and wield a gunblade after Texas legalized carrying around swords. Yes, really.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up in The Freddy Fazbear Experiment a full two years before officially joining the Crew.
- In-Series Nickname: The Prop Goblin.
- Ms. Fanservice: Seems to have grown into this sometime around when she plays Black Widow in A Civil Warning.
- Official Couple: With Kyle, to the point that they got married in January, 2019.
- The Cameo: Take a close look at the bottom left-hand corner of the 'Chaos Shot' in Unfortunate Cookies.
- He appears in 'every' video between Avatar: Battle of the Bend and Self-Fulfilling Idiocy 4.
- Reality Warper: Can change the quality of any video he appears in seemingly at will.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Almost immediately became hostile upon gaining sentience.
- Catchphrase: "Gentlemen!"
- Chewing the Scenery: Squire is obviously having a lot of fun with the vocals.
- Evil Brit: Played by Squire, tries to kill pretty much the entire crew. Right on both counts.
- Time Travel: Can transport himself and others through time and between videos in the channel.
Jegor and Yegor:
- Back from the Dead: Yegor with a Y got back due to Kyle's time traveling.
- Husky Russkie: Apparently so much so that they couldn't get any other jobs besides KGB Henchmen.
- Mooks: Their lot in life.
The Extortionist Hobo:
- Crazy Homeless People: May not actually be homeless, but definitely crazy.
- Knife Nut: Hasn't actually attacked anyone with it yet, but always has a hefty butcher's knife on him.
- The Bus Came Back: Either a live action version of Rodriguez or a Suspiciously Similar Substitute appears in D&D: Perception, followed by A Fable III Experience finally being released in 2018.
- The Cameo: Briefly appears in Self-Fulfilling Idiocy 4 and Comical Road Trip.
- Development Hell: A Fable III Experience languished here for seven years before finally being completed.
- The Ace: Ironically, given his most prominent role on the channel, Matt is praised both in-universe and out as a being a cut about in terms of acting ability.
- The Bus Came Back: reappears in Civ 6 vs Europa Universalis 4.
- Butt-Monkey: As Enrique Dandelo, Doge of Venice. Everyone hates him, the major religion in the setting is called Denouncing Venice and his only city is turned into radioactive carbon by Gandhi's first nuke.
- Fake Guest Star: has appeared in far more videos than any other non-cast-member actor or actress, and has actually appeared more than full cast members Reid and Ricky.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Everyone Cast Member is this, but Cesar takes it Up to Eleven.
- The Other Darrin: Is hired to be Ian in Show Busyness.
- Evil Brit: Has been typecast as villainous characters, most notably as Dell Laptop.
- Cloud Cuckoo Landers Minder: Comes with being the Only Sane Man.
- He Who Fights Monsters: What Scott accuses him of post Time Skip. It's not yet been shown to be true or not.
- The Leader: By default-he's the highest ranking Anarchist left after Meyer rounds most of them up.
- Mad Scientist: Well, he looks the part, but lacks the temperament.
- Only Sane Man: Look at the rest of these characters. He's this by default (with the possible exceptions of Emma, Meyer and Katie).
- The Smart Guy: By default.
- Rank Up: It's implied post Time Skip that he's replaced Emma as leader of the Anarchists.
- Those Two Guys: With Scott.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Scott claims that he's devolved into this post Time Skip, as the Anarchist are apparently causing as much damage to the city as the Oligarchs.
- Career-Ending Injury: Post-Time Skip, although being Scott, it all it took was him getting a haircut.
- The Dandy: More worried about the hair care products that Mr. Justice uses than the fact that Mr. Justice is trying to punch him in the face.
- Good Old Fisticuffs: Scott's superpower is that he can punch people really, really hard, even knocking out helmet clad Mooks with a single punch.
- The Lancer: acts as one to Noam for most of the series. Post Time Skip, though, he's retired.
- Appropriated Appellation: According to Word of God, how he got his name The Arsonist.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Is, with the possible exception of Messier, the least sane of the Anarchists by a longshot.
- Pyromaniac: See his name?
- Ambiguously Human: Robot? Cyborg? Human with superpowers? Your guess is as good as ours.
- Axe-Crazy: Imprisoned for being a 'Reckless Monster' when we first meet him. He lives up the billing.
- Comedic Sociopath: His absurd levels of violence, coupled with his hammy and Cloudcuckoolander tendencies makes him a perfect example of this.
- Defector from Decadence: Inverted. It's implied post Time Skip that he broke off from Noam and the main Anarchist group because they weren't decadent enough.
- Establishing Character Moment: Spraying automatic gunfire into a crowd of civilians.
- Hyperspace Arsenal: Has the power to store a very large collection of guns, knives, and heavy ordinance without any of it being visible.
- Kubrick Stare: Despite not having visible eyes or facial features, manages to pull this off when he's first freed.
- Miles Gloriosus: Downplayed; Messier cuts a swathe through Meyer's agents, but quickly deflates when Noam gets on to him.
- Sealed Badass in a Can: Emma kept him locked in a metal cell in the Anarchist's original HQ.
- Token Evil Teammate: So much so that the Anarchists originally had him locked up for being a straight up violent lunatic.
- Walking Armory
- Always Someone Better: Noam is actually a fairly good combatant, as he demonstrates against Meyer's agents and Messier. Katie still pushes him around like it's a game.
- Ambiguous Situation: Post Time Skip, she has yet to make an appearance, but has apparently had a falling out with Paul.
- HeelFace Turn: About 3/4ths of the way through the first season although this may have been undone post Time Skip; see Ambiguous Situation above.
- Heel Realization: What leads to the above HeelFace Turn-she realizes, along with Paul, that she's been working for the villains after seeing an old man being beaten by Meyer's Security Agents.
- Meganekko: Presumably, this is were she takes the name "Spectacle" from.
- Signature Move: Tasing people, especially Noam.
- We Used to Be Friends: Post Time Skip, Paul considers her a "Traitor and a scoundrel," but it's never explained what exactly this means.
Paul/Mr. Justice/The Justice:
- Black and White Insanity: Lampshaded by Amicus post Time Skip.
- The Cape: Parodied.
- HeelFace Turn: Pulls one along with Katie towards the end of Season 1 although certain dialogue post Time Skip implies that this may have been undone.
- Heel Realization. Twice. First in season one, which leads to the above HeelFace Turn, and another post Time Skip, when Amicus points out his Black and White Insanity.
- Ignored Epiphany: Maybe. After Amicus points out his case of Black and White Insanity, Paul goes out to correct the wrongdoing caused by his moral views, but stops when it turns out that the guy he was profiling actually was evil.
- Spell My Name with a "The": After the Time Skip
- We Used to Be Friends: Apparently, with Katie post Time Skip.
- Beneath Notice: This turns out to be more useful than his actual superpower.
- Meaningful Name: What denomination of currency does Lincoln create? note
- Ridiculously Average Guy: He's so not notable that most people don't even realize he's in the room.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Creates pennies out of thin air. Just pennies.
- The Leader: of the Anarchists, at least before most of them were captured.
- Mauve Shirt: has the most lines of any Anarchist outside of Noam's group by far, but still only appears in three scenes.
- Big Bad:
- Caught on Tape: Lincoln records his evil gloating.
- Evil Gloating: His Fatal Flaw
- Eviler Than Thou: Eventually, towards the other Oligarchs.
- Evil vs. Evil: This is how Meyer is defeated-by the Anarchists turning the rest of the Oligarchs against him.
- Omnicient Council Of Vagueness:
- Tap on the Head: His attempt at this goes much less...murder-y than Silverback's
Lord Chromwell of East Alantown:
- The Atoner: though not by choice. He's cursed so that he has to make amends with all those that he's ever wronged or else stay as a hulking monster for the rest of his life.
- Hulking Out: He is cursed to become a raging monster whenever he gets too stressed.
- Clark Kenting: Apparently well enough to fool her own uncle.
Liram Quill/The Revenant:
- Automatic Crossbows: His favored weapon is one.
