Doctor Crafty
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crafty.png
Click to see him in his youth 
Voiced by: Alex Tansley

The titular Villain Protagonist of the show. Not much is known about his past, except that he failed art college and started his YouTube series so he can Take Over the World...somehow.


  • Absurd Phobia: He's afraid of Blob Monsters because he was scarred for life by Mr Blobby.
    • And when Merry makes him do art involving Mr. Blobby in the first Patreon episode, Crafty desperately (and repeatedly) tries to end the episode.
    • His fear of Blobby is so bad that even Nurse wearing giant googly eyes is enough to scare him.
    • When he created Messibelle, she initially creeped him out at first until he gave her a maid outfit to wear. Thankfully, it didn't take long for him to view her under a more positive light.
  • Alliterative Name: Colin Crafterson.
  • Affably Evil: A supervillain and proud of it, but in the end he can be a nice person, in a Jerk with a Heart of Gold kind of way.
  • Badass Longcoat: He sports a long lab coat that reaches to the floor. It also doubles as a Badass Cape for when he decided to get serious against Bakura.
  • Bad Boss: He frequently mistreats the zombies minions, especially taking advantage of the fact they don't know how to go on strike. Meanwhile, when interacting with his cohosts, he's much nicer to them, if still a little careless with how he acts.
  • Bad Liar: In Episode 33, he claimed he had to take a break because a Greninja injured his spleen, but neither Nurse nor Darksilvania bought it, knowing Crafty just wanted to take a nap instead.
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, don't mention Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts to him.
    • You also shouldn't mention Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL or the Link Monsters system, or he'll go on a rant that will last a while if uninterrupted.
  • Big "WHAT?!": The only reaction Crafty can muster when Merry decides to add conflict to her script by introducing a Love Triangle between Crafty, Nurse and Molly.
    • Returns with a vengeance in Merry's second episode, when she introduces Nurse Millie into the fold, describing him as 'the cuck'.
      • In the same episode, his response to Professor Merry's flabbergasted response to said obliviousness, as well as her revealing Nurse's bisexuality.
  • Brain Bleach: During Episode 27, Nurse talking about anatomy drawing classes causes Crafty to recall when he was in art college. He was scarred by the sight of a model taking off his robe... while in the background two apples are positioned next to a banana.
    • In Episode 41, he yells for bleach after witnessing some of the more...animatedly grotesque attempts to render breasts.
  • Camp Straight: One look at the doctor and the word 'flamboyant' comes to mind. Nurse even mentions how she gets Crafty's sexuality confused sometimes thanks to his mannerisms.
  • Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality: Crafty's been playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild so much that he frequently daydreams about being in Hyrule.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He makes it no secret that he's a maniacal genius, even correcting the Pokemon narrator when he accidentally referred to Crafty as a hero. Even so, he's very much on the lower end of the villainy scale. Most of the time, it comes across as an aesthetic he wears to look cool.
  • Catchphrase: "Oh, bollocks!", "Confound it!" and "Roll for Dragon!". In the Top 10 Tub episodes, it seems to be "Cut, cut, cut!".
    • Interestingly, in Episode 1, Crafty attempted to choose a catchphrase. He went with "Let's Get Crafty!" (an altered version of which starts most of the episode descriptions), since his original choice, "Watch my show or I'll come to your house and genetically fuse you to your bathtub!", wasn't really marketable.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He definitely has his moments, like how he needs to read children's books to tell the difference between a donkey and a rhino.
  • Delayed "Oh, Crap!": It took him nearly a minute to realize Nurse was possessed by Bakura, and even then he doesn't react to it until he's banished to the Shadow Realm.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": He takes issue with being called his first name, Colin, since it reminds him of his time with Sasha. In Episode 58, he briefly snaps at Nurse when she refered to him as Colin. However, he just as quickly collected himself and apologized to her.
  • Driven to Suicide: His younger self tried this by leaping off a cliff, which led to him meeting Sasha for the first time. He almost tried doing it again weeks after they broke up, but fortunately he recovered from this mindset after saving Nurse Worse from the grave she fell in.
  • Emo Teen: Crafty was quite the troubled youth, saddled with depression, loneliness, and even some suicidal thoughts. However, he evidently got better over time, in no small part due to saving Nurse's life.
  • Everyone Has Standards: While he has a preference for women with voluptuous figures, he draws the line at unrealistic Gag Boobs, especially when they're Gainaxing.
  • Evil Brit: To hammer the point home, a British flag appears in the background when Crafty makes a Rousing Speech about the importance of first drafts.
  • Fat and Skinny: The skinny to Nurse's fat.
  • Fainting: Of the Girly Man variety, minus the screaming. He does this after being frightened by the Furry Fandom, only recovering after Nurse tells him someone donated $1000 to his Patreon.
  • Genius Ditz: He's not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed, but when it comes to talking about pop-culture franchises he likes, he's surprisingly quite knowledgable.
  • Given Name Reveal: Colin, as revealed in Episode 35's flashback. His full name was also revealed in Episode 50: Colin Alexander Crafterson.
  • The Glasses Come Off: He took off his goggles before confronting Ring Nurse, helping to signify that he wasn't playing around anymore.
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual: Crafty wears Google Goggles, which lets him search for reference pictures with voice commands. He decides to switch to Bing after leaving Safe Search off once too many.
  • Has a Type: If Crafty's hiring of females like Nurse Worse, Pepper, Messibelle, and Madame Crystalline says anything, it can be inferred that Crafty has a strong preference for women who are quite Rubenesque and smart. In Episode 5: A Lovely Day For Meiham, when talking about Mei from Over Watch he even says (while talking about Mei) "There's something to be said about a woman of science and intelligence... Plus she has those healthy curves, and cute glasses, and is clearly capable of responsibly carrying a whole team herself."
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Crafty gets this way when brought up about his favorite Digimon, Wizardmon.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: A Type B version. This was reason he tried to commit suicide in his youth. He eventually made friends with Sasha, and later got some more friends thanks to the show's other hosts.
  • Informed Attribute: With the possible exception of implanting the audience's computers and phones with mind control devices and allegedly grave robbing, Crafty hasn't done anything particularly villainous so far.
    • Ironically, Crafty leaves most of his guest characters in a storage unit, where they need to eat each other to survive. However, Crafty isn't aware of the cannibalism at play.
    • It's also possible he's responsible for the Pokemon narrator getting shot.
    • He was also shown to willingly sacrifice the souls of YouTube commenters without hesitation for the sole purpose of making the show more popular. He only gets out of this because the souls were later returned.
    • He's also entertained the idea of mutating puppies, chemically halting children's development, and once attempted to saw off Nurse's hands to create an Ultra-Hand-inspired ARMS character. There's a lot going on in that twisted brain of his.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Crafty takes a lot of punishment throughout the course of the series, but usually comes out none the worse for wear.
    • It's revealed in the season 3 finale I Need A Hero Academia that this is due to him possessing the last Infinium Heart a relic that is said to hold unfathomable power, that he gained during his relationship with Sasha.
  • It's All About Me: Being the host of the show has given Crafty quite an ego. He claims his opinion is superior to others and won't let others talk about subjects in detail for him just because it's his show.
    • When comparing the images of everyone in swimsuits, he flat-out declares the image of himself to be better than his co-hosts.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he sometimes undermines his Pet the Dog moments with his crassness, Crafty does genuinely care for his friends. In the Season 3 premiere, he even apologizes to Nurse for being pretty rotten toward her across their time together. From that point forward, he demonstrates more periods of emotional vulnerability where his nice side comes out.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: He usually reacts to bad puns with either a stern glance or by sending something after the person who made the pun.
  • Large Ham: Crafty can get quite into it, especially with his maniacal laughter.
  • Laughably Evil: While it's debatable how evil he really is, there's no denying the shenanigans he causes are hilarious.
  • Lean and Mean: He's pencil-thin, and is a Card-Carrying Villain to boot. This facet of his design gives him a distinguishable silhouette compared to his cohosts, who range from curvy to very heavy-set.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Best shown throughout the arc I Need a Hero Academia. His determination to save his friends showed him downplaying his usual foolish demeanor, as he was hell-bent on stopping Mindstein, with pretty badass results.
  • Mad Scientist: Naturally.
  • Manchild: Nurse once joked that Crafty was "twenty-nine going on nine". She's not wrong.
  • Megaton Punch: Despite lacking a muscular physique, he’s able to perform an uppercut strong enough to launch people into the stratosphere.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: He's left overreacting after Mario grazes him with a gunshot wound, tearfully requesting a glow-in-the-dark band-aid for it.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: His PhD was earned legitimately. Just not by him. And it's in viticulture (the study of grapes) of all things.
  • Never My Fault: He claims he's not responsible for planning a beach vacation or forgetting to bring sunscreen, but of course, he is.
  • Nice to the Waitress: Crafty met Pepper when she was working as a waitress (in a seafood restaurant, no less). He noticed she was miserable working there, so Crafty decided to hire Pepper for her dream job as a chef.
  • Oblivious to Love: Dr. Crafty himself doesn't seem to notice Nurse Worse's clear affections for him most of the time. Sometimes, he is focused on other women of similar fashion of Nurse Worse.
    • When asked about Nurse's attraction on Curious Cat, Crafty responded he had no idea what they were talking about.
    • Not even a Patreon piece of Nurse in a revealing swimsuit could do anything for him.
  • Oh, Crap!: In Episode 19, he has this reaction to the discovery that the trick-or-treaters dressed up as witches on Halloween aren't actually witches. It's definitely justified in that he apparently used them to "keep the fireplace warm" (read: used them as kindle).
  • Old Flame: To Sasha. Despite them being separated for fifteen years, he still has romantic feelings for her.
  • Only in It for the Money: While initially hesitant to let Merry co-host the first Patreon episode, he later changes his mind when he hears he'll get paid for doing the episode (complete with dollar sign Wingding Eyes for added emphasis).
    • However, he puts up an effort to resist when Merry returns with a fresh check for a second episode...only to give in when she threatened to commission Shadman instead.
  • Parental Substitute: To Messibelle, since she lacks a biological father but was technically created by Crafty. As such, he makes sure to try and respect her the same way he does to the other co-hosts.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: His hairstyle as a teenager. Symbolically, it represented his feelings of sorrow and loneliness, almost to the point of killing himself. He loses this hairstyle, and his depression, after fixing Nurse Worse.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Despite being a self-proclaimed diabolical scientist, he never does any real schemes, plotting or any supervillain-related activities. He just seems content with doing his webseries.
  • Pungeon Master: Yes. He loves his puns, he does. Though, when his co-hosts get into the pun-making, he sometimes gets annoyed.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Even though he and Nurse tied for the final Death Debate score, he thought he could change it to make himself the winner, just because he's the host.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He threatened to quit if Nurse did another "Sister Suffrage" joke, even though he couldn't quit because it's his show.
  • Seen It All: He's seen so many weird things throughout the series that the sudden appearance from Team Rocket in Episode 34 doesn't even faze him.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Even though Nurse admits Crafty's not exactly a household name, he thinks that everyone will soon recognize him aside from just being "that guy who does Linkara's title cards".
  • Sore Loser: He just couldn't accept Yugi was defeated by Sakura in the Death Debate, and claimed himself the winner by default just so he and Nurse wouldn't be tied.
  • Spiky Hair: His current hairstyle. It was revealed in a flashback that his hair became this way while reviving Nurse, getting electrocuted in the process.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: He claims he doesn't watch Glee, instead saying he watches the commercials in between.
  • Third Eye: One appears right before he finishes off Bakura. Turns out it's because he has the Infinium Heart within him, and the eye appears whenever he taps into its power.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Downplayed as he's not exactly that evil, but he the only member of the cast who's proud of being a self-proclaimed supervillain.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He made several bad ink puns despite knowing full well that Nurse would hurt him for doing so.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Thanks to the combined efforts of Sasha and the co-hosts, he was able to defeat Ring Nurse in a completely one-sided battle.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Starting with Season 3, he decided not to take advantage of his friends anymore became more openly friendly to them.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: According to Curious Cat, McDonald's.
  • Trauma Button: Played for Laughs. The mere mention of life-drawing class causes him to flashback to seeing the naked model in art college.

    Nurse Worse 
Nurse Worse
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nurse_7.png
Voiced by: Megami33

The main co-host of the show. Dr. Crafty hired her as his lab assistant, and she's ironically far more knowledgeable on drawing tips than he is.


  • Action Girl: She has the best fighting ability out of all the characters, as many unfortunate victims would attest to.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her original human appearance has tanned skin, but it's not entirely clear what ethnicity she truly is, especially with her German-sounding real name.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: In Episode 51, she softly says to Crafty that she loves him. Crafty didn't catch what she said and asked her to repeat it, but she denied saying anything and proceeds to punch Crafty in the face.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: As part of Mindstein's plans, she was destined to harness the powers of the Infinia through her Heart, becoming the tool needed for Mindstein to conquer the universe in the name of science.
  • Badass Adorable: She's cute, quirky, and very skilled at hand-to-hand combat.
  • Badass in Distress: Her predicament in the finale arc I Need a Hero Academia. While a capable fighter in her own right, a plotted-out surprise attack — in combination with her freezing in fear — led to Mindstein capturing her. And since the evil doctor knew Nurse could fight back, she created a machine specifically made to restrain her and prevent escape attempts. And just to prove she wasn't completely helpless in this situation, she managed to escape by tapping into the power of her Infinium Heart, breaking free and kicking ass once more.
  • Bathing Beauty: Nurse apparently takes multiple formaldehyde baths a day (since, well, she's a patchwork made of dead body parts and the formaldehyde prevents her from rotting). She has appeared with just a towel on more than once.
  • Berserk Button: Certain things Crafty does — like using his d20 die against her, interrupting her, and calling his Rhino Pokémon a donkey — are enough to make Nurse go ballistic, though this was heavily toned down after Season 2.
    • In an example not related to Crafty, she gets furious when talking about people who draw breasts in an unrealistic way.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Nurse Worse is quite hefty but is no less attractive for it, mismatched green skin aside.
    • Her weight is first acknowledged twenty episodes in, as a reason for her not being affected by the freezing cold.
  • Big Eater: According to Crystelle, Nurse devours dozens of double-A batteries on a daily basis.
  • Big Fun: The "Big" part was already a given, and the "Fun" part comes from her bright and cheerful personality.
  • Break the Cutie: Once her Repressed Memories of her mother Mindstein were brought back by Bill Cipher invading her mind, she broke out into terrified tears because of all the terror inflicted on her. And that continued to happen during the Season 3 Finale arc, as she got to experience Mindstein's evil firsthand.
  • Buxom Is Better: Whether it's from a mad scientist's stitching or a result of her plumpness, Nurse Worse has quite a large rack and is a pretty popular character in the show and among co-hosts and fans.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: While she has a crush on Crafty, she's afraid to admit it to the others. Messibelle is the only one who knows Nurse's true feelings to him.
  • Catchphrase: A probable one is "Here's a useful tip!".
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: She constantly has to deal with the antics and delusional grandeur of Crafty.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Downplayed and non-romantic example. While she eventually warmed up to Pepper and Messibelle, she was not too pleased with being on the show at first, proclaiming herself to be "best girl".
  • Cute Monster Girl: She's basically an adorable parody of Frankenstein's Monster.
    • She even called out this trope by name in Episode 28, citing it as the reason she's frequently objectified in commissioned artwork.
  • Cuteness Proximity: She reacted this way upon seeing Crafty's Fakémon starters. And while she was initially disappointed with getting the Water-Type, she grew to love it because it was so cute.
  • Deer in the Headlights: Thanks to Bill Cipher unearthing repressed memories about Mindstein, this led to her freezing during the latter's surprise attack, and getting captured without any resistance.
  • Fat and Proud: She’s grown more comfortable with her weight thanks to her popularity with fans. Doesn’t stop Crafty from making fat jokes at her expense, though.
  • Fat and Skinny: The fat to Crafty's skinny.
  • Fat Best Friend: Nurse Worse is quite plump and being Dr. Crafty's trusty assistant and co-host could qualify her as his best friend, though he might not admit it out loud.
  • Fear of Thunder: She really doesn't like the lightning effects Crafty uses in his episodes. Doubles as an Ironic Fear considering what she uses electricity for...
  • Genius Bruiser: Her brawn is matched by her brains, and she's got plenty of both to spare.
  • Genki Girl: She has her moments, especially whenever she's featured in artwork.
  • Golden Super Mode: Upon tapping into the power of the Infinium Heart, her bolts, eyes and colored hair streaks all turn gold. And in this form she's powerful enough to take down a half-turned Screw, when it was already established that a quarter-turned Screw is a One-Woman Army.
  • G-Rated Drug: Nurse apparently racks up high power bills by applying electricity to her bolts, excusing it as being for "medicinal purpose". Her addiction even got her banned from certain auto-part stores.
    • With Nurse dressing up as Sandy at the end of Episode 21, she is holding a battery in place of a cigarette.
    • In the first Patreon-sponsored episode, Nurse is unable to host the episode due to attending a meeting for "Electroholics Anonymous".
  • Given Name Reveal: Her real name is Greta, though she doesn't recognize it at first. By the time of the season 3 finale, she finally recalls it in full: Greta Franzisca Wunderwurse.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: She does this in Episode 30 right before JoJo punching Gilgamesh.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She tended to have this around Crafty in the earlier episodes, though she's since made amends with him and mellowed out. She's even gone on record saying these things don't annoy her anymore... because she's always annoyed.
  • Has a Type: If her lustful reactions to the Magician of Black Chaos and Crafty convey, her interest in men seems to fall under the Tall, Dark, and Handsome category.
  • The Heart: Whenever Crafty or the others are feeling terrible, she tries her best to listen to them and take care of them, no matter how hard it is. And as revealed by Crafty himself, she was the motivation that prevented him from attempting suicide again.
  • Hospital Hottie: Nurse Worse has been established as being quite gorgeous both in-universe and in real life.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: She seems far more knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the art process than Crafty is.
  • Hypocrite: On two separate occasions she physically attacks Crafty for continuously making puns. Then caps it off with a pun of her own.
  • Identity Amnesia: Being revived by Colin gave her this side-effect, which he got around by coming up with her new name "Nurse Worse". However, she eventually gained her memories (and her confidence) back when she used the Infinium Heart to take down Screw.
  • I'll Be in My Bunk: She quotes this line verbatim when Crafty said she could write fan-fiction about him, and again when seeing an image of the Magician of Black Chaos.
  • Imagined Innuendo: Nurse gets aroused when the Sanderson Sisters talk about their desire to "eat" her, unaware that their true intention is they want to consume her soul.
  • It's All My Fault: She considered the events of The Foreshadow Game to be her fault, as she was the one that opened the package the Millennium Ring was in.
  • Jerkass Ball: A frequent holder of it in Season 2, as she's much more short-tempered and prone to attacking Crafty for mostly petty reasons.
    • Jerkass Realization: However, the events of The Foreshadow Game revealed problems from Crafty's past that she didn't know, and it caused her to see him as more than a whiny manchild. As such, she's apologized for how she treated him in the past and vows to treat him with more respect and be a better friend.
  • "Just Joking" Justification: Nurse claimed the only way to purchase the alternate armors in Breath of the Wild was to sell Crafty's Nintendo Switch. This made Crafty angry until Nurse told him it was a joke.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: A non-fatal example, but a significant one nonetheless. As part of her backstory, she accidentally fell into an open grave running away from Mindstein, leaving her naked, in pieces, and covered in dirt and blood. Fortunately, Colin heard her cries for help and managed to repair her.
  • MacGuffin Super Person: As it turns out, one of the Infinium Relics was used in her construction, specifically for her heart.
  • M.D. Envy: She has a PhD in psychology, but is unsure if she should be called "Doctor Worse" because of it. Crafty shoots down that idea because he doesn't want to pay her a doctor's salary.
  • Meganekko: She wears glasses, and it just adds to her overall adorable appearance.
  • Megaton Punch: She delivers one to Screw after using the full extent of her power, sending her flying and leaving her incredibly damaged.
  • Morality Chain: To Doctor Crafty. Saving her from her old life and becoming close friends with her played a significant part to why Crafty isn't either dead or a much worse person.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Despite her name, she seems reasonably competent at her job. Although, this ended up Subverted during her Jerkass Realization in the Season 3 premiere, where she admitted she had been "a terrible nurse and a worse friend."
  • Not So Above It All: Despite normally being The Straight Man to Crafty's Cloud Cuckoolander, there are a few moments where it's the other way around. A prime example being when she wanted to use the electric shock machine from episode 41. When Crafty refused to let her have it, she acted like a child who's been denied sweets.
  • Nice Girl: No matter what happens, she'll always make sure to show kindness to her fellow co-hosts.
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: She has a crush on Maleficent.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: While she is the shortest character in the cast, she's also the strongest.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Crafty is constantly annoying or frustrating her, but it takes thirteen episodes for him to prompt her into physically attacking him.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The fourth Chara-Cafe shows that when confronted by several Drop-In Characters invading the lab, she just backs away slowly and leaves.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Downplayed as she has a little shame in being depicted in sexual content, particularly when Crafty draws it, but seeing herself in Not Safe for Work fan-art is still a guilty pleasure for her.
  • Silent Treatment: She gave this to Crafty in Episode 29 due to him constantly interrupting Nurse.
  • Stout Strength: Despite Nurse's weight, she frequently works out and knows how to throw a decent JoJo Punch.
  • Talk to the Fist: Whenever Crafty annoys or insults Nurse, her immediate reaction usually involves punching him in the face.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: According to Curious Cat, battery acid.
  • Workout Fanservice: Gets this treatment in the She-Hulk Patreon episode, showing off her generous curves in the process of stretching to a She-Hulk workout video. As usual, Crafty responds with utter obliviousness.
  • You Are Fat: She was often insulted this way by Crafty, until he stopped out of respect for her friendship.

Spin-Off Hosts

    Pepper & Pickles 
Pepper
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pepper_5.png
Voiced by: Katy Johnson

A humanoid octopus girl who serves as a chef in Crafty's kitchen. She's the co-host of the Season 2 spin-off Crafty's Chara-Cafe. Notably, her creator, Blue-Paint-Sea, has developed her even further over on his Deviant Art page. It's been confirmed that anything he does with the character is canon to the show, so tropes involving Blue's pieces will appear here.


  • Adorkable: Soft voice? Check. Upbeat personality? Check. Somewhat shy? Check. Cute smile? Check. Yep, she definitely oozes this trope.
  • Ambiguous Situation: She's unsure whether she's more human or octopus, and also doesn't know if she has Zora or Octarian DNA. She might also have the DNA of other sea creatures as well.
  • Apologises a Lot: She tends to get this way when something goes wrong.
  • Asexuality: She states in Episode 8 of Chara-Cafe that she's asexual.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Pepper has a ribbon wrapped around her mantle. This combination evokes the idea that she's tied her hair back, which is a good practice among cooks with long hair. This trope was also invoked in-universe; her prominent tummy was what convinced Crafty that she'd be the perfect chef.
  • Balloon Belly: Pepper uses this trope as a defensive utility, officially named "Octo-Bloat." She can inflate like a pufferfish when under threat of injury or stress, as seen in episode 4 of Chara-Cafe. It's also a literal case when she inflates again in the same episode. When her body reaches its limit, the excess air causes Pepper to rocket toward Sebastian's gang and tackle them out of the castle.
    • She also gets nice and plump(er) in this art piece, this time due to gorging herself on her cooking.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Across all her outfits, her tops leave a lot of her belly exposed. Even her Crafty Industries attire, which covers her the most out of every option, leaves her love handles out in the open. This piece implies her exposed midriff is due to her wearing slightly under-sized clothing.
  • Berserk Button: Surprisingly, she'll get frustrated if someone refers to anime as a "Japanese cartoon".
  • Big Beautiful Woman: In tandem with being quite tall, Pepper is quite plump, with a pot-bellied figure that is even heavier than Nurse's. Between her gentle personality and other soft features, and perhaps because of her big frame, she's absolutely adorable. To reinforce this, the (in-universe) audience greets her with overwhelming applause during her in-series debut and the Chara-Cafe's premiere.
  • Big Eater: Pepper really enjoys eating, and it shows. She can eat three dozen bags of cheese puffs in under a minute. In fact, her eating habits are partially out of necessity; lacking a nose means she relies strictly on taste-testing to ensure her meals are correct.
  • Big Fun: While she's atypically reserved compared to other examples of this trope, Pepper still has a big, indulgent heart. Finding great happiness in eating food, she wishes to spread this joy to others through her own cooking. She's also just as well-versed in pop-culture as the other hosts.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Like a real octopus, she has a mantle. Instead of containing her vital organs, however, her mantle contains an ink sack and a water tank, the latter of which allows her to live on land.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: She involuntarily inks herself whenever she gets really nervous, something that Nurse finds out when she slips on her ink puddle.
  • Chameleon Camouflage: She can blend into her environment like a real octopus, although her clothes remain unaffected.
  • Chubby Chef: Crafty explained on Curious Cat that this was the reason he knew Pepper would be a good chef, claiming it was "a gut feeling".
  • Cuteness Proximity: In contrast to Messibelle's aroused reaction to her chibi self, Pepper's reaction to her own chibi was to jump for joy at how cute it is.
  • The Cutie: Pepper's unambiguously characterized with this trope in mind. She's never seen apart from Pickles, her pet and best friend, and her whole motivation for becoming a chef is to make other people happy. She's also got an almost motherly disposition, easily being the gentlest and most understanding of the Crafty Crew.
    • Messibelle tends to consult her when something's on her mind for the latter reason. Some notable instances are the Season 3 premiere, where they discuss Nurse's complicated, possibly unreciprocated feelings for Crafty, and the Spinoff crossover. In the latter, when Messi breaks down sobbing due to missing Crafty, Pepper immediately rushes to her side and holds her. Messi doesn't object.
  • Does Not Like Spam: The only thing she can't cook is seafood. Considering what she is though, that's perfectly understandable...
  • Don't Look at Me!: She dislikes being in public places because she doesn't want people to stare at her.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The first time we see Pepper in the Update Video, she's hiding behind Crafty and acts embarrassed after he introduces her.
  • Fat and Proud: Downplayed, as she holds some self-consciousness regarding her appearance. However, this piece shows her caressing her belly with a pleased expression on her face, so she enjoys her chubbiness to some degree at least. Also, when describing her physical exams with Nurse in the third Chara-Cafe episode, Pepper blushes — perhaps partly because she enjoyed having her belly touched.
  • Fat Girl: She has some aspects of this due to her self-conscious nature.
  • Fish Person: Pepper's an anthropomorphic octopus, and her genes account for an untold number of other sea creatures.
  • Gentle Giant: She's the largest character (in terms of both height and weight), and is very sweet.
  • Grew a Spine: Starting with Season 3, her timid nature was toned down while her confidence was boosted. While she still remains soft-spoken, she's far less camera-shy than she used to be and even stood up for herself on a few occasions, including being instrumental in Mindstein's defeat.
  • Growling Gut: Perhaps because of how much she eats, Pepper’s stomach tends to growl or make other such gastrointestinal noises when squeezed. Sometimes, even so much as lightly touching it elicits a grumble or slosh.
  • Jiggle Physics: Because of her soft skin and all the fluids she retains, her body jiggles whenever she moves.
  • Mundane Utility:
    • She never really uses her ink for defensive purposes. Instead, she uses it as ingredients in her cooking.
    • Her tentacles — both sets, on her head and waist — are very practical for multi-tasking while cooking and serving food.
  • Nice Girl: Despite her shy demeanor, she treats everyone around her with kindness and respect.
  • The Noseless: She doesn't have a nose, requiring her to taste-test everything she cooks.
  • Not Quite Flight: She can launch herself into the air by coiling her legs and shooting a stream of ink below her.
  • Occidental Otaku: She enjoys watching anime (well, good anime), so much so that she gets frustrated whenever someone compares them to Western cartoons in any way. While she eventually grew to like Western cartoons as well, she personally prefers watching anime instead.
  • Punny Name: Taken together, the two names refer to "Pickled Peppers." It's also quite fitting that a chef is named after a vegetable. The others even made plenty of puns based around Pepper's name.
  • Pursue the Dream Job: She was unhappy with her old job as a waitress in a seafood restaurant. Instead, her dream job was to be a chef, something she finally achieved after meeting Crafty.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: She prefers not to wear a swimsuit, thinking it would draw too much attention to herself.
  • Serious Business: She takes table manners very seriously.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's rather shy, usually taking a while before appearing on camera.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She stands at over seven feet, making her the tallest of the hosts.
  • Stock Animal Behavior: Being an octopus, Pepper can produce ink, squeeze her bulky frame into tight crevices, use camouflage, and make liberal use of her many tentacles for problem-solving.
  • Super Senses: Turns out she's also part whale and can use echolocation. This was discovered during I Need a Hero Academia, where she and Kyoka Jiro combine their powers to locate Mindstein's exact location, in order for Messi to restrain her with her stretchy arms.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Nurse initially sees Pepper as this given that they're both kind-hearted, green-skinned, humanoid Big Beautiful Woman. Even though Pepper is shy, quiet, and happy to work in her usual position, Nurse is out-going, talkative, and ready/eager to host the show should Crafty be indisposed. As the series goes on, Nurse no longer holds Pepper as this and becomes quite fond of Pepper and even fascinated by her biology.
  • Sweet Tooth: She really enjoys eating candy, even taking some of Crafty's after hers was stolen.
  • Team Chef: Crafty hired her so he'd stop having to eat Hot Pockets every night.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: While she prefers to eat any kind of food, she has a particular taste for pasta. Also, her favorite fast food restaurant is Wendy's.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: The Chara-Cafe intro shows Pepper pulling a cooking ingredient out of her bosom.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: The main reason she doesn't wear pants is that her waist tentacles get in the way, sometimes tearing them apart.

Pickles
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pickles_9.png
Pepper's pet sea cucumber. While not life-long friends, they became inseparable sometime in the distant past. He only speaks by making raspberries.
  • Empathy Pet: Whatever Pepper is feeling at the moment, Pickles will mirror her emotions as much as he realistically can.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Despite speaking strictly through raspberries, the other characters can understand Pickles just fine. According to Pepper, Pickles can be surprisingly profound.
  • Parrot Pet Position: Pickles typically rides Pepper's shoulders or head, poking out from beneath her tentacles.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: As if Pepper wasn't adorable enough, Pickles contributes to the adorableness with his small, friendly face and tendency to mimic Pepper's facial expressions.
  • The Unintelligible: Pickles is only able to communicate by blowing raspberries, although everyone seems to understand what he's saying.

    Messibelle 
Messibelle
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/messible.png
Voiced by: ToxicSoul77

A slime maid who lives and cleans in Crafty's bathroom. She's the co-host of the Season 2 spin-off Crafty's Top Ten Tub.


  • Anything That Moves: When it comes to showing her affection to women, she certainly doesn't discriminate. In fact, the first Top 10 episode has her drooling over a demoness, a cyclops, and a spider woman, just to name a few examples.
    • Not even Pokémon are safe from her lustful gaze, as seen through her flirting with Tsareena.
    • She does have standards, though, as she reacts with clear disgust to drag queens.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Messi's bonnet resembles a snail's shell; much like snails, she tends to leave slime trails wherever she moves.
  • Berserk Button: The topic of Stockholm Syndrome. Mention it at your own risk.
  • Broomstick Quarterstaff: She's frequently depicted using a mop as a weapon.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not overtly so, but there are quite a few jokes taken at her expense, such as when she thought she was being replaced with a robot, or when Nurse joked that she sold her to pay for alternate Breath Of The Wild armors and Crafty didn't care. There's also the time when she accidentally hit Nurse with a mop, and she retaliated by punching Messi in the face.
  • Casual Kink: She's not shy about how horny she is and will often commend something that appeals to her fetishes, even if it squicks out the others.
  • Characterization Marches On: Towards the end of the second season, her sexual tendencies were toned down slightly, with more emphasis placed on her energetic personality and her father-daughter relationship with Crafty.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Almost all the time, at the start. It still happens from time to time though.
  • Ditzy Genius: She's just as smart as the other hosts, though she can sometimes be Literal-Minded or just completely misunderstand some things.
  • Double Entendre: She tends to drop a lot of innuendos whenever she's aroused by someone.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She's introduced in the Update Video excited to finally be on screen, eventually pressing her face against the camera and teasing the audience.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her pupils are shaped like hearts. They even change into broken hearts whenever she's mad or upset.
  • French Maid Outfit: Episode 29 reveals that her outfit helps prevent Crafty from thinking about his worst nightmare when in her presence.
  • Gasshole: She burps when her body is carbonated. She can also belch the lyrics of the Bohemian Rhapsody.
  • Genki Girl: She's very excitable with a bubbly personality.
  • Hartman Hips: Messi's unambiguously the most bottom-heavy of the cast proportionally. Her hips are wider than her shoulders, and she has a surprisingly large rump.
  • Ideal Illness Immunity: She's immune to every disease since her slime kills all germs that it encounters.
  • Irony: Most of the mess she cleans up comes from the trail of slime she leaves behind her.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Her predicament of being banished to the Shadow Realm with the other co-hosts led to her wanting a beer to drink.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: Even though her expletives are censored, she has sworn on the show more than anyone else combined.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Every character she's flirted with has been female.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: She always acts horny in every on-screen appearance she makes, but she's kind and helpful around the lab regardless. While this has been toned down a bit since the end of Season 2, she's still got shades of this, using her allowance to take her and the ladies of the Top 10 Dr. Crafty OCs to a strip club.
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Crafty made her and she considers him her father.
  • Married to the Job: She's quite dedicated to her job as a maid under Crafty. She even gets emotional when she thought Crafty was going to replace her, a conclusion she mistakenly came to in the very next episode after her debut.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • A twofold example. As a maid, Messibelle's job is to clean up whatever mess befalls the castle. However, she must frequently clean up her own slime, which itself can be quite messy.
    • Her surname — Deluge-Latrine — also applies. It essentially means "severely flooded toilet," and considering she's a maid who lives in Crafty's bathroom, one who likely has to scrub toilets once in a while, it fits.
  • Naked First Impression: Crafty gave Messibelle her maid outfit since she was naked when he first created her.
  • Oblivious to Love: Yes. Seriously. Even someone as love-crazy as Messibelle can't pick up Serena's obvious affection for her!
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business:
    • In the season 3 premiere, the normally excitable and perky Messibelle becomes calm and sullen after The Foreshadow Game's events. This change was motivated by her concern for Nurse Worse and how she regards Crafty.
    • A heartbreaking example occurs in the spin-off crossover. When Messi brings up All-Might to conclude her segment, she describes him as the ultimate dad character... upon which she starts choking up. Soon after, she starts sobbing for Crafty to come back, calling him "daddy" the entire time.
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: She has a special crush on all the Disney Princesses.
  • Polyamory: She wants to get married to as many women as possible.
  • Porn Names: Apparently, her porn nickname is "Sloppy Suzy".
  • Precision F-Strike: Episode 36 features Messibelle calling the Great Mighty Poo "a little shit", only to immediately apologise for swearing since this is (mostly) a family-friendly show.
  • Pungeon Master: She has her moments with making non-sexual puns, such as the time she caused a pun overload around Shovel Knight in the third Top 10 Tub.
  • Rubber Woman: Her slimy body allows her to stretch in any position she wants. This came in handy when she stretched her arms from the dungeon all the way to the roof, restraining Doctor Mindstein long enough for Crafty to finish her off.
  • Screw Yourself: She lusted for her own chibi drawing in Episode 40, and then attempted to make her own clone with the intent of having sex with herself.
  • Shipper on Deck: She thinks of Dr. Crafty and Nurse Worse as a couple, and has even taken couples counseling courses online should they need it.
  • Signing-Off Catchphrase: "Until next time, goo-bye!"
  • Slime Girl: Notably, her slime is made up of random bathroom chemicals that Crafty accidentally spilled together.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Inverted. While she's usually a strict lesbian, even she couldn't resist the charms of Prince Sidon.
  • The Tease: It was initially pretty much standard for her to flirt with almost everyone she sees: the audience, the other hosts, the characters in the Top 10 countdowns...
  • Trademark Favorite Food: According to Curious Cat, shampoo.
  • Verbal Tic: She usually says "goo" in place of "good" or "god".
  • Womanchild: Even more so than Crafty, considering she Really Was Born Yesterday at the time of her accidental creation.
  • Younger Than They Look: Messibelle is a relatively recent creation of the doctors, though no specific age is given. The audience is reminded of how young she really is when she starts crying like a young child about how she misses the doctor, calling him daddy the entire time.
    "I miss my daddy!"

    Madame Crystelle 
Madame Crystelle
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crystelle.png
Voiced by: Inrezairo

A Fortune Teller who spends her time in the laboratory's closet. She's the host of the Season 3 spin-off Crafty's Questionable Qloset.


  • Adorkable: While she tries to maintain a stoic mystical demeanor, she has plenty of moments where her serious act is broken and she proves to be just as quirky as the other characters. This is especially the case whenever she does an adorable giggle following a pun or a question for her.
  • All-Powerful Bystander: This is discussed for the first question about her. While she is aware of several futures, she can't always tell which one would come true in the current timeline, and the ones she does know about she can't interfere in, lest she disrupts the flow of the timeline. She also can't see into her own future, as she feels that would make her far too powerful and scatter the time flow, which is why she couldn't predict being captured by the Doc-Drohnes.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Crystelle embodies the fortune teller archetype wholeheartedly. Not only does she dress the part, with ornate, mystical clothing, but she also goes as far as being the trademark crystal ball.
  • Bald Woman: Justified as her head is a crystal ball, which obviously can't grow hair in the first place.
  • Celestial Body: Her magical construct body is light purple with several stars inside.
  • Chrome Dome Psi: A rare female example, as she's a psychic with no hair.
  • Crystal Ball: A living, sentient example of one.
  • Extradimensional Power Source: While she's a skilled psychic, her powers work best inside of her closet. She explained that it's the source of her mystical energy, which she uses for sustenance instead of earthly means like food. If she's removed from the closet, then she would lose her construct body until she returns to it.
  • Fashion Model: She admits she used to be one back in her younger years, even being a front-page model for "Forture Fatale Psychic Weekly" multiple times.
  • Hartman Hips: They're pretty noticeable, especially thanks to the color balance on her skirt that stands out from most of the purple. Unlike Messi, Crystelle carries a slightly larger upper body.
  • I Am Very British: She speaks with a refined British accent, which helps convey her elegant and mystical nature.
  • Madame Fortune: It's right there in the name.
  • Magical Barefooter: She's a fortune-teller who doesn't wear any shoes.
  • Non-Human Head: A crystal ball head, one that doesn't provide any facial features except her eyes.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her primary color scheme is purple and she's quite a skilled psychic.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Unlike Pepper and Messi, Crystelle never got a proper introduction. The closest we got was in the Season 3 trailer that revealed her show, but it's still unknown how she met Crafty.
  • Seers: The main thing she uses her psychic powers for is seeing the future.
  • Star-Spangled Spandex: In addition to the stars on her body, she has some on her cloak as well.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Her official listed height is 6' 4", making her one of the tallest characters on the show. She's third only to Pepper and Sasha in terms of height.

Stylene

Voiced by: Elsie Lovelock

A witch working for Crafty as a stylist. She will be the co-host for the upcoming Season 4 spin-off, Crafty's Shake-Up Salon.


  • Anime Hair: Impressively, her hair is styled like a giant witch hat.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Stylene's hair is styled to look like a typical witch's hat, and it's done so well that you'd be forgiven for regarding it as a true hat. It's both expected witch iconography and a testament to her skills as a stylist.
  • Boxed Crook: The only reason she's working for Crafty at all is to reduce her sentence from Salem Prison.
  • Brooklyn Rage: Her accent very much hints at this.
  • Burn the Witch!: A downplayed example as she was just incarcerated, but this is pretty much the only reason she was arrested in the first place.
  • Chatty Hairdresser: Even if her discussions are quite demeaning to the person she's talking to.
  • Cleavage Window: The hole in her shirt leaves little to the imagination.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She will not hesitate to dish out snarky remarks on anyone.
  • Hartman Hips: Like Messibelle and Crystelle before her, she's got a pretty wide set of hips.
  • Hot Witch: She's got some generous curves, along with clothes that show off her breasts and legs.
  • Ice Queen: Out of all the hosts, she's pretty much the meanest; unlike the others, she's not too happy about working for Crafty, not to mention she'll dish out blunt insults to everyone she meets.
  • The Makeover: Her specialty.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her left eye is obscured by her hair.
  • Salem Is Witch Country: Referenced in her backstory, as she was previously serving time in a Salem jailhouse. She was offered probation, under the condition that she works for Crafty.
  • Sassy Black Woman: She's got brown skin and is described as being sassy and blunt.
  • Token Evil Teammate: For the other co-hosts, as she's the only one with an active criminal background.

Professor Merry
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crafty_concoction__heartzmd_9_by_drcrafty_dc5bd49.png
Voiced by: Miss Nightmare

The first guest host to appear on the Patreon-sponsored episodes. She's overjoyed to be in the episode, even bringing her own script for it. Although, Crafty would come to eventually regret this decision...She's also the only guest host so far to have a second episode, returning from orbit for more fanfics.


  • Adorkable: She often gets this way over her dedication to the script she wrote for her friend Molly, though as the episode progresses, she starts to get a little too dedicated to it.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Becomes this in her second appearance towards the end when Crafty reveals Molly invited him visual novel style for a brunch date.
  • Gorgeous Gorgon: She notably has eels for hair, not that it distracts from her good looks at all.
  • I Have My Ways: Her reaction to being asked how she got into Crafty's secret lair. Disgustilda advised her to use a spoon to dig her way in.
  • Made of Iron: Near the end of the episode, she ends up blown skyward by an explosion from her fanfic-writing machine. Despite staying up there for a long time, Molly makes note that she'll be fine when she comes back down.
    • This turns out to be true, as she returns for a second Patreon episode by falling from orbit and through the roof, and is no worse for wear despite it, eager to get back to business.
  • Mad Scientist: Both she and her friend Molly are scientists, and the "Mad" part comes from her obsession for writing fan-fiction.
  • Meganekko
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Well for starters, she's also part Gorgon.
  • Self-Insert Fic: What Molly reveals Merry's script really is: just a glorified Fan Fic with Molly shoehorned into multiple scenarios.
  • Shipper on Deck: States as much in her second episode where the focus is on her commissions shipping Nurse Worse with her own assistant, Nurse Millie. ...which turn out to have a grain of truth in them after all when the two nurses meet in person.
    • In turn, she is utterly flabbergasted at Crafty's utter cluelessness at her attempts at arousing him with pieces of the Nurses in swimwear.
  • Side-Effects Include...: She decides to list off the side-effects of Evil Laughing... and it goes on for a very, very long time!
  • Transparent Closet: She accidentally makes a Freudian Slip calling Molly her girlfriend, but later backtracks and simply refers to her as just a fellow scientist.
    • Crafty calls her out on this in her second appearance after she delights at the sight of her chibi and her hopes of getting 'Milly to snuggle with her'.

Dr. Crafty transformed into a Peachy form thanks to the Super Crown he found during the third Patreon-sponsored episode.


    Maidbot 
Maidbot

When Crafty's lab became littered with garbage before the fourth Patreon-sponsored episode, Dr. Crafty needed some help to clean it up, as Nurse, Messibelle, and Pepper were at the club.


  • Ascended Fanon: She was originally #8 on Top Ten Dr. Crafty Fan Characters, and since then had a cameo in Top Ten Disney Characters, and then she got her own Patreon-sponsored episode.
  • The Quiet One: She is capable of speaking, but has only had one line of dialogue so far.
  • Robot Maid: She's fully equipped with vacuums, lasers, air fresheners, and a trash compactor. Shame the Doctor didn't actually install the trash compactor.
  • Super-Powered Robot Meter Maids: Without the "Meter" part. Lasers aren't exactly necessary for a robot maid.

    Doctor Mindstein 
Doctor Mindstein
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crafty_oc__mindstein_by_drcrafty_ddc2jn5_fullview.png
Voiced by: Olivia Steele

The mother of Nurse Worse, and the true mastermind behind everything that's happened in the story.


  • '50s Hair: She has a notable bouffant hairstyle that's much larger than her head.
  • Abusive Parent: To Nurse. One flashback shows her cutting into Nurse's body while she's still awake, and in the present, she's responsible for getting Nurse possessed. Furthermore, other flashbacks demonstrate that one punishment for Nurse leaving the house without her mother's permission is a syringe to her neck. All of this because she doesn't see Greta as a daughter, but as a scientific tool to further her research.
  • Artificial Limbs: Reveals one in I Need a Hero Academia, complete with a giant syringe. It's somewhat ambiguous if Mindstein truly has them, as the one that did was fully robotic.
  • Ax-Crazy: Regularly partakes in torture and mutilation, all with a perky smile on her face.
  • Big Bad: The Villain Antagonist to Crafty's Villain Protagonist, and the overall arcing villain of the whole show.
  • Brain in a Jar: Her brain can be seen through a glass dome on her forehead. Its purpose was to keep her alive while she upgraded her body, but that wasn't quite enough for her.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: Her eyes are always visible with a disturbing blue glow. They're even visible in her shadow, giving it an even more disturbing effect.
  • The Chessmaster: By studying every episode Crafty releases, she came up with a clever plan to capture the castle with little resistance. She made sure to have Screw give Crafty a Megaton Punch to get him as far away from the castle as possible, knowing about Sasha's possession of his body and not wanting her to meddle in her scheme. As for the other co-hosts, Mindstein had her Doc-Drohnes launch the assault quickly to get past Crystelle's clairvoyance and electrified the dungeon bars so neither Pepper nor Messi could squeeze through them. And that's not even accounting for the fact that she sent a robot clone of herself to the castle to attack, staying in her laboratory and studying the outcome of the subsequent fight.
  • Deal with the Devil: And despite her plans also involving a Physical God, she's the devil of this deal! In this instance, she "convinced" Bill Cipher to work for her and extract an unknown secret from Crafty's mind.
  • The Dreaded: Just the mere mention of her name makes Nurse react in fear and for very good reason. Nurse completely froze when Mindstein raided the castle, leaving her completely defenseless as Screw effortlessly knocked her out.
  • Dr. Fakenstein: Between her name, her depiction as an evil scientist, and being the mother of two Frankenstein monsters, Mindstein pretty much fits the bill. She also incorporates some elements of the Monster herself with her blue skin and stitches.
  • Evil Laugh: She pulls off a few disturbing ones, mainly during the Season 3 trailer and after she successfully takes over the castle.
  • Evil Matriarch: She's Nurse Worse's mother and she's bad enough to bend at least two villains from other shows to her will.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She may act all kind and motherly, but don't let her fool you for a second, lest you fall victim to her truly sinister nature.
  • For Science!: Her justification for all the horrid acts she's committed, and the backbone behind all of her schemes.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of The Foreshadow Game and "Cartoon Month", being the one who Zorc and Bill Cipher after Crafty and friends in the first place.
  • A Glass of Chianti: She's sometimes depicted holding a glass of a blue cocktail.
  • Godhood Seeker: Her ultimate goal: using Nurse Worse and all of the Infinium Relics, she wanted to open the Infinium Door and let the eldritch energy flow throughout the multiverse, with herself at the center of it all researching the results.
  • Hijacking Cthulhu: So far, she managed to get two Eldritch Abominations with immense power to work for her, while suffering no retaliation from them! And, as noted above, she plans on doing this with the Infinia too.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: She has pale blue eyes, which is fitting for her cold, sinister personality.
  • Karma Houdini: Since she was in her lab the whole time during I Need a Hero Academia, she was never in any danger of facing Crafty and Class 1A and managed to get away scot-free to continue her schemes.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The show's previous villains were either harmless or hilarious. But the instant this lady appeared, she established early on that she means business.
  • Large and in Charge: She has a powerful Frankenstein Monster and killer robots to serve her, and according to the official height chart, she towers over most of the cast at 7' 5".
  • Laughing Mad: Particularly all over the place as her schemes began to fall apart courtesy of Crafty and Class 1A. But it ends up subverted: while the real Mindstein is still prone to diabolical laughter, she was still calmer and more collected than the robot clone who was cackling in frustration every five minutes.
  • Lean and Mean: In contrast to her pudgy and kind-hearted daughter Nurse Worse, Mindstein is as thin as she is evil.
  • Mad Doctor: An expert in medical science and anatomy, and an insane murderer with delusions of playing god.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Even more so than Crafty himself!
  • Non-Action Big Bad: It was revealed to be the case in I Need a Hero Academia as the Mindstein Crafty and the others defeated was a robot clone, while the real Mindstein spent the story arc watching the events unfold from the safety of her own lair.
  • Obviously Evil: Just look at her! Her design makes Crafty look subtle in comparison!
  • Offing the Offspring: In order to turn her daughters into Frankenstein monsters, this trope naturally comes into play.
  • Playing with Syringes: Her experiments involved murder, mutilation, and playing with forces she could not comprehend, all just to devise the ultimate tool for conquest and research.
  • Purpose-Driven Immortality: In her case, her purpose is to become truly immortal, not just a simple brain continually sustained via replacement bodies and upgrades. And to get that, she seeks the powers of the Infinia and the secrets of the universe.
  • Psycho Electro: Able to produce electricity from her hands, mainly for Electric Torture and Mind Raping.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Her pursuit in scientific studies has led her to be alive for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. It wasn't enough for her, as she knew she'd die eventually no matter how long she's lived for.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Screw's Blue. While Screw is eerily calm with a monotone pitch in her voice and barely any expressions coming from her face, Mindstein is much perkier and has her face locked in a near-constant smile.
  • Scary Stitches: Comes with the territory of being a Frankenstein monster, but unlike Nurse Worse she's truly scary.
  • Silence, You Fool!: Prone to shout this at Nurse for speaking and for singing. It's unknown if the real Mindstein would do this as much as her more unstable clone, but it's likely she would.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: Up until Episode 70, she was obscured in shadow. Only her eyes, mouth, brain, and the faintest details of her clothes could be seen.
  • Skunk Stripe: She's got two blue streaks in her hair, similar to the Bride of Frankenstein.
  • Slasher Smile: She must really enjoy her evil schemes as she's prone to this quite often, usually when torturing her victims.
  • Spikes of Villainy: She has spikes on her gloves, boots and sides of her head.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Considering her Establishing Character Moment involved mutilating her daughter, it's pretty safe to say she's much viler than all the show's other characters!
  • Villainous Breakdown: Seeing the power of the Relics used against her caused her to lose quite a few more screws than she already had. This was noted by the real Mindstein to be a trait more associated with her robot clones, but the point still stands.

    Screw 
Screw
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crafty_oc__screw_by_drcrafty_ddc2jnr_fullview.png
Voiced by: VanityPride

Nurse Worse's younger sister, currently living and serving under Dr. Mindstein.


  • Always Someone Better: Agrees to Mindstein's 'upgrades' to not fall behind her sister, as seen in the post-credit scene in the Season 3 finale.
  • Ax-Crazy: While not as apparent as her mother, she does show shades of this, especially when she's in a fight and brutally beating someone to death.
  • The Brute: While still quite intelligent, Screw much prefers acting as the muscle for Mindstein's plans. She's got more than enough power to spare for the role, too.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Nurse's Abel. She doesn't hesitate to attack Nurse Worse on her mother's command.
  • Cyborg: After her defeat, Screw returns to Mindstein's lair a bloody pulp...and with open wounds revealing metal instead of muscle, revealing the true extent of her mother's experimentations thus far.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's shown to be just as capable a fighter as Nurse, easily knocking her out and sending Crafty flying out of the castle, both with a single punch. And that's not even getting into the Curb-Stomp Battle she delivers to Class 1A...
  • Dark Is Evil: In contrast to the bright colors and clothes her sister and mother wear, Screw wears an all-black outfit with shades of dark red and pink, and her skin palette is a much duller gray.
  • The Dragon: She's Mindstein's right-hand woman, always accompanying her in her schemes.
  • Emotionless Girl: She almost never raises her voice, and her default facial expression is a dull frown.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of Nurse Worse, as she's also a plump Frankenstein monster in service to a mad scientist, one who's truly evil compared to Crafty.
  • Fat Bitch: She's just as big as her sister, but nowhere near as nice.
  • Given Name Reveal: As revealed in episode 65, Hazel.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name comes from the screw lodged in her head and arms.
  • Megaton Punch: She's strong enough to punch Crafty from his castle in Florida all the way to U.A. High School in Japan. That's about 7,300 miles away, just under a third of Earth's circumference.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: She gains a notable muscle increase when she turns her head screw and is practically a nigh-unstoppable fighter because of it.
  • Not So Stoic: While normally emotionless, she becomes much more unstable and sadistic during a fight, even indulging in taunting her opponents with how she's going to destroy them.
  • One-Woman Army: Best demonstrated when she takes down all of Class 1A by herself, even managing to Punch Catch one of Deku's strongest attacks.
  • Power Limiter: The screw on her head was revealed to be this. Quarter-turning it allowed her to take down all of Class 1A, and half-turning it allowed her to go toe-to-toe with Nurse's super mode.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Her default expression, even in flashbacks.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Mindstein's Red. While Mindstein is much perkier and has her face locked in a near-constant Slasher Smile, Screw is much calmer with a more monotone pitch in her voice and barely any expressions coming from her face.
    • She's also a Blue Oni to Nurse Worse's Red, as she's more energetic and emotional than Screw is.
  • Scary Stitches: Comes with the territory of being a Frankenstein monster, but unlike Nurse Worse she's truly scary.
  • Stout Strength: Just as portly as Nurse Worse, and strong enough to knock her out in one punch.
  • Theme Naming: Her name is Hazel and her sister's name is Greta. Does that sound familiar to you?
  • The Watson: Throughout the story segments of Episode 72, she kept asking Mindstein about her motivations and fascination with the Infinia, which by extension allows her to explain it to both Screw and the audience.

  • Distracted by the Sexy: They got distracted by Bakugo's Bishōnen appearance, which didn't end well for them.
  • Everything Is an iPod in the Future: Their mostly sleek aesthetic, white appearance, and glowing blue eyes and brains give off this vibe to their design.
  • Gratuitous German: Their name is spelled "drohnes" instead of the English way of spelling without an "H".
  • Not So Above It All: While you wouldn't expect them to show any emotions, one look at Bakugo made them practically swoon.
  • Mecha-Mooks
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: It's noticeable during the castle raid that they are voiced by a text-to-speech program
  • Zerg Rush: How they took over the castle in the first place, overwhelming Pepper, Messibelle and Crystelle with their sheer numbers.

Voiced by: Ethan Wright

The form Nurse Worse took on under the control of the Spirit of Yami Bakura. He planned to claim Nurse for his master Dr. Mindstein, sending Crafty, Pepper, and Messibelle into the Shadow Realm in the process.


  • Anime Hair: His hair wildly exaggerates Nurse's, making it much longer and spikier.
  • Arc Villain: Of The Foreshadow Game.
  • Artifact of Doom: The Millennium Ring, of course.
  • Badass Longcoat: He retains his black long coat from the anime.
  • Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: While he was in control for most of the duel against Sasha, almost killing her in the process, he didn't count on her helping Crafty and his friends to work together and beat him.
  • Cold Ham: His voice actor mimics Ted Lewis's performance from the 4Kids dub, giving him this effect.
  • Evil Costume Switch: From Nurse's regular outfit to Bakura's clothes from the Dawn of the Duel arc.
  • Fat Bastard: Not the Spirit himself, but the fact that he's taken Nurse's overweight body invokes this trope.
  • Gender Bender: A male spirit inside a female body.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Unlike Nurse, Bakura can see just fine without glasses.
  • The Heavy: While a competent threat on his own, he ultimately serves Mindstein as she was the one who sent him to capture Nurse in the first place.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Sending Crafty to the Shadow Realm proved to be a huge mistake, as Crafty used the energy of the realm to create a new monster — one fused from one of his El Shaddolls — that ended up being Bakura's undoing.
  • Iconic Outfit: His striped shirt and trenchcoat are carried over from Bakura's home series.
  • Killer Game Master: Naturally, his method of battling Sasha is with a game of Duel Monsters.
  • Marionette Master: His entire deck is filled with Shaddoll archetype cards.
  • Sadist: He loved making Sasha suffer during their duel.
  • Tsurime Eyes: His eyes are much sharper and angular than Nurse's.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: He's just as evil here as in his origin show, being the first threat to place the Crafty Crew in mortal danger.
  • Villainous Breakdown: While normally calm and collected, he started losing his temper once the duel quickly shifted in Crafty's favor.
  • Voices Are Mental: When he's in control, the other characters notice the change in voice.

    Sasha 
Sasha

Click to see her human form 
Click to see her in Crafty's body 

Voiced by: Allison Seils

A mysterious woman from Crafty's youth who quickly became one of his closest friends after she saved his life.


  • Adorable Abomination: For a sea creature deity, there are times where she can be surprisingly cute.
  • Adorkable: Her first bit of awkward laughter makes her come across as this.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her human clothing includes a crop top that shows her stomach.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be kind and loving, but she will stop at nothing to defeat you if you threaten Crafty's life. Bill Cipher learned this the hard way.
  • Blue Is Heroic: She's a darker shade of blue, but unmistakably one of the good guys.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Due to how long she's been away from Crafty, she couldn't bring herself to see him again in person. She could only bring herself to deliver a letter before leaving the castle. And when Crafty arrives at Disgustilda's house to ready a battle plan with UA High-Class 1-A, Sasha spent her time hiding in the closet until he left, which disappoints Disgustilda.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She's made several cameos across Seasons One and Two before appearing more regularly.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Her ability to play Duel Monsters was established so she could eventually battle Ring Nurse in the Shadow Realm.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Whenever her mouth does appear in her base form, it's shown to be full of sharp teeth. But thanks to her personality, it's more adorable than disturbing. Played straighter in her human form, with a pair of tiny fangs visible when she speaks.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite her somewhat frightening appearance, she's not malicious at all.
  • Despair Event Horizon: She hits this hard after almost being killed by Ring Nurse, worrying that Crafty and the others would be trapped in the Shadow Realm forever. Fortunately, Crafty helps her recover by facing Bakura himself.
  • The Dreaded: If even Bill Cipher is afraid of her, you just know Sasha qualifies for this trope. Not to mention she also wields a sword that can make a god Deader Than Dead, so that helps too.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: She has eyes all over her body which she can summon at will.
  • Fashion Model: According to Crystelle, Sasha once dabbled in a modeling career when she was younger, but later decided that she was more comfortable behind the camera instead of in front of it.
  • First-Name Basis: She mainly calls Crafty by his real name, Colin.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: The first time she donned her human guise was to make herself more presentable to Crafty's parents.
  • Humanoid Abomination: She's an Infinia, a species of elder gods that have existed since the dawn of time, and creator of relics that can revive, torture, and destroy other gods. While she's the last living of the Infinia, their influence is quite noteworthy amongst other deities.
  • Instant Expert: Her time spent with Crafty allowed her to become an expert at playing Yu-Gi-Oh!. Good thing too, given the events that happen in The Foreshadow Game...
  • Last of Her Kind: Bill believes that the Infinia was totally wiped out before he found her.
  • Laugh of Love: This was the first time she ever experienced laughter, and it, combined with a Luminescent Blush, cemented the moment she fell in love with Crafty.
  • Morphic Resonance: The reference sheet states that her skin will constantly be blue regardless of whatever form she turns into.
  • My Greatest Failure: This is the reason she broke up with Crafty in the first place. She was afraid that he would put his life in danger again like the first time they met, except this time she wouldn't be able to save him and she'd feel responsible for what happened. She had to leave Crafty without telling him to prevent this from happening, and she regretted breaking his heart even to this day.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: She was able to detect something terrible happened to Crafty the moment he was pulled into the Shadow Realm.
  • Nice Girl: She's soft-spoken, friendly, and spends her free time trying to help others in need.
  • No Mouth: Zig-Zagged. Her default form has a mouth that appears occasionally, she has one in her human form, and lacks one when she's in control of Crafty's body.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Perhaps to emphasize her divinity, Sasha is frequently drawn with two full sets of fingers, whereas everyone else has Four-Fingered Hands.
  • Old Flame: To Dr. Crafty. Despite them being separated for fifteen years, she still has romantic feelings for him.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: "Sasha" is a nickname she made up after meeting Crafty's parents. According to her, humans would have to add 400,000 more letters to the alphabet to spell her real name.
  • Perky Goth: She has a goth fashion in her human form, but she's usually very polite and cheerful.
  • Prehensile Hair: Her hair is prehensile and can be whatever length or style she wants.
  • Physical God: She's been described as a goddess by Crafty, and she certainly has the power to back it up.
  • Psychic Block Defense: She's the reason why Bill Cipher cannot get into Crafty's head. He eventually managed to get through her defenses... because she let him get through so she can kill him herself.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down to her feet in both her real form and her human form.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Appropriately for an eldritch monster, she's been alive for thousands of years.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's about 7 and a half feet tall, and nice-looking by the standards of an eldritch being.
  • Symbiotic Possession: Unlike the Millennium Ring's more hostile possession of people, Sasha possessed Crafty's body with the intention of getting him out of danger. And after that, her possession remains in Crafty's mind to protect him from other gods and monsters who threaten to hurt him.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Crafty's height of over 6 feet is by no means tiny, but he's still a foot shorter than Sasha.
  • Visual Pun: She's Crafty's love interest and she's an eldritch being. She's Love-Crafty-an.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: She's able to take on a more human appearance, albeit with Pointy Ears and blue skin.
  • Wealthy Philanthropist: After breaking up with Crafty, she became a director in Hollywood. Her career involved teaching guest lectures in college, donating to charity events, and participating in volunteer work.
  • What Is This Feeling?: Despite living for several millennia, her time spent with Crafty made her experience things she hasn't before, including happiness, sadness, and of course, love.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: According to her reference sheet, the forms we see her in are the only one human eyes can bear. Her true form hasn't been seen yet, but it's hinted to be something otherworldly.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her human form has dark blue hair.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears thigh-high boots in her human form.

    Crafty's Parents 
Howard and Vinny Crafterson

Howard Voiced by: D. Tyler Fultz
Vinny Voiced by: Kim Gasiciel

Colin Crafterson's mother and father, who were first seen on the show after he invited Sasha to live with them.


  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Both of them acted this way after meeting Sasha, much to Colin's displeasure.
  • Beatnik: Howard just oozes of this trope, mainly thanks to his mustache, shades, sweater and trumpet.
  • Celebrity Resemblance: Apparently, they've been mistaken for Sonny Bono and Cher, so they decided to roll with it and started a tribute band for the duo under the name "Skinny and Hair".
  • Cool Shades: Both of them wear a pair.
  • Good Parents: They were genuinely concerned about Colin's safety, and were more than willing to help Sasha out with her situation.
  • Hartman Hips: Vinny's almost as thin as her husband, with her hips as a notable exception.
  • Hippie Parents: They both met at the Woodstock Music Festival, falling in love during their impromptu performance of Sonny & Cher music.
  • Noodle People: Howard. It's pretty easy to see where Crafty gets his lankiness from.
  • So Proud of You: Their reaction to Colin finally making a friend.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Both of them have traits that carried over to Crafty, including Howard's physique and nose, and Vinny's long curly hair.
  • Unexplained Accent: While Howard's Cockney accent makes sense for matching Crafty's accent, Vinny speaks with a slight Chicago accent for some reason.

    Disgustilda 
Disgustilda
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/disgustilda.png
Voiced by: Alex Tansley

A recurring character who wants nothing more than to get revenge on Dr. Crafty and Take Over the World... even though she's not a noteworthy threat at all.


  • Affably Evil: Despite (supposedly) being Crafty's archenemy, she's rather polite. She even offers Sasha a place to stay during her visit in Florida. In addition, she started acting like a motherly figure to Sasha, advising her about confronting her feelings with Crafty.
    • Plus she's willing to help Crafty and Class 1-A defeat Mindstein, but only because she likes the other co-hosts.
  • Ambiguously Human: Between her deformed appearance and skin color, it's unknown if she's human or something else entirely.
    • Making things even more confusing is the fact that, according to Crafty's commission rules, she qualifies as a Creature Concoction.
  • Anti-Climax Boss: Played for Laughs in the fifth Top Ten Tub. She was set to be the Final Boss of the episode, following several established fighting game characters, but one punch from Crafty was enough to send her flying.
  • Arch-Enemy: A self-proclaimed one to Crafty. Episode 73 eventually explained why: she originally owned the castle Crafty lives in now, and swore revenge on the doctor for stealing it from her.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: She desperately wants to be a true villain, but she just... isn't. This is especially the case when truly evil antagonists like Doctor Mindstein show up.
  • Breakout Character: Originally created as a one-off gag parodying Revolta, she has since become a character in her own right and made frequent appearances since then.
  • Chekhov's Gag: Her recurring break-ins at the castle were all Played for Laughs, but come I Need a Hero Academia, it ends up coming in handy to help Crafty and 1-A plan an attack against Mindstein's defenses.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: As Crystelle puts it, not all the lights are on inside her head. Even when she has moments of lucidity, she can still come across as just a bit senile.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: For as ditzy as she can be, Disgustilda is surprisingly knowledgable regarding relationships. She gives Sasha some sound advice for how she should handle her feelings for Crafty. For example, while planning the castle raid, Disgustilda notes that Sasha trying to insert herself back into Crafty's life during an emotionally stressful time could only make things worse. Later on, she also tells Sasha to have faith in Crafty and let him handle Mindstein on his own for the same reason. Sasha concedes to her points, opting to intervene only when there is no other option.
  • Evil Plan: She claims to have one but never really does.
  • Expy: She made her debut as a parody of Revolta, even down to having a similar name. Eventually, she transitioned away from this to become a more distinct character.
  • Fan Disservice: The Stinger of Episode 40 has her wearing a swimsuit. Cue eye-gouging.
  • Gonky Femme: Despite looking and sounding rather hideous, she nonetheless acts like a typical elderly woman, even taking up hobbies like knitting, bingo, and watching daytime TV.
  • Harmless Villain: So harmless, in fact, that so far she's easily been dispatched by Nurse's pet Blob Monster and Crafty's d20 die-summoned dragons.
  • Laughably Evil: Disgustilda tends to bring in the funny when she shows up, especially in her earlier appearances. Her ineffectualness and general goofiness — appearance, voice, and all — make her pretty entertaining.
  • Meaningful Name: With a name like “Disgustilda”, would you honestly expect her to be beautiful?
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: However, I Need a Hero Academia implies that she can be somewhat competent if she puts her mind to it. Although. seeing that she had Sasha help come up with the battle plan, who knows how much of it Disgustilda thought up herself?
    • It's implied in the spin-off crossover that she is brimming with untapped potential. When asked whether Disgustilda will ever be a serious threat, Crystelle has a psychic breakdown and falls into a catatonic state before she can finish.
  • King Koopa Copy: A huge top-heavy body, a deep voice, spiky armbands, a spiky back, huge clawed hands, and the self-proclaimed nemesis of Crafty? She pretty much checks off all the boxes. This is a case of Author Appeal as Alex has established himself to be a Nintendo fanboy, so deliberately using Bowser as a design influence makes sense.
  • Parental Substitute: To Sasha. During her stay in Florida, Disgustilda has been offering her meaningful advice on how to handle her strained relationship with Crafty, rightfully pointing out that suddenly appearing back in his life when he's in trouble isn't going to make things better between them.
  • Plot-Irrelevant Villain: A parody of the trope, usually appearing when mentioning straight examples like Revolta and Oogie Boogie. As for Disgustilda herself, she became more relevant to the plot in later seasons, especially being a key player in the I Need a Hero Academia finale arc.
  • Poke the Poodle: Her "plans" usually consist of multiple steps of doing nothing.
  • Shipper on Deck: Surprisingly, despite her intense(?) hatred of Doctor Crafty, she has a soft spot for seeing him and Sasha reconcile.
  • Spikes of Villainy: She has spike on her clothes, hair and ring. She even has spikes on her yarnballs to knit a spiky sweater!
  • Spiky Hair: Quite literally in this case, as her hairbun resembles a spikeball.

    Zombie Minions 
Zombie Minions
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zombies_2_5.jpg
From top to bottom: RJ Grid, Whyboy and Nero, ToxicSoul77, Katy Johnson, Alex, SkittlezJuice, and ChaseFace.
The writers, editors, and additional artists of Crafty's videos. They're zombified versions of Paladin Taim, RJ Grid, Nero and Whyboy of ToonGrin, ToxicSoul77, Katy Johnson, Alex Tansley, SkittlezJuice, and ChaseFace.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Katy has pink skin, which is quite an unusual color for the undead.
  • Artificial Limbs: RJ has a metal claw for a left arm.
  • Author Avatar: Zombie Alex, being the zombie version of the show's creator and Crafty's VA, is this.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Katy's shirt exposes her abdomen... or what's left of it, as all that remains of her torso is her spine and pelvis.
  • Butt-Monkey: Unless they directly threaten to attack the doctor, they get no respect from Crafty as employees.
  • The Cameo: They briefly appear in Part 4 of I Need a Hero Academia, where they're seen standing in a doorway watching the action unfold.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Katy and ToxicSoul77 are the voices of Pepper and Messibelle, yet they also exist as zombies in-universe.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: SkittlezJuice invokes this visually, what with the giant head-bolt, multicolored stitched skin, and the fact that she hasn't shown any signs of decaying unlike all the other zombies.
  • Flesh-Eating Zombie: According to AskFM, the zombies eat some of the fan-art characters Crafty keeps in storage.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: The ToonGrin zombies have these.
  • Put on a Bus: Paladin Taim was fired and replaced by Katy, so don't expect to see his zombie counterpart anymore.
    • RJ Grid has also stepped down as editor, though on much friendlier terms. His job is being covered by ChaseFace.
  • Reused Character Design: Zombie Alex bears heavy resemblance to Crafty, seeing as they have the same VA.
  • Revenant Zombie: They're intelligent enough to use the software and grammar required to do their jobs.
  • Satellite Character: Their only defining characteristic is that they write and edit the show. They don't have much of a prescence on the show besides that.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Whenever Crafty tries to take advantage of them, they usually respond by spewing several (somehow grammatically-correct) profanities.
  • Shout-Out: ChaseFace's zombified appearance takes several design cues from Sans, including the skeletal head and hands, cheeky grin, and a glowing blue light from his left eye. He also has a cartoony heart visible through his ribcage, referencing how heart symbols represent SOULs in the game.
  • Suddenly Voiced: After all the cameos the zombies made, Episode 51 finally gives a speaking moment to Nero... though how he can talk when he's missing a jaw is anyone's guess.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Unlike the other zombies, SkittlezJuice isn't a writer or editor. Instead, her job consists of drawing titlecards for the YouTube thumbnails, which started for Episode 71.
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: This is their preferred method of getting back at Crafty: by making him say embarrasing things they write in the script.
