    Jeremy "Jerma" Elbertson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/evil_jerma.png
"LIFE IS PAIN. I HATE-"

The creator and star of the channel from Boston, Massachusetts. He is also both the commentator and a contestant in the Jerma Rumble Wrestling League as two different people. He started out with Team Fortress 2 commentaries (favourite classes are the Engineer and the Spy), but made strange, hilariously bad Indie Steam games his primary channel focus before shifting to a full-time Twitch streamer with a vague plot arc and a highlights channel that serves as his main Youtube channel since 2016, 2ndJerma.

  • Affably Evil: He’s assumes this personality in his streams, where he cracks jokes with his audience as well as murdering Santa Claus and several memes that were shown to be sentient.
  • Angrish: Usually provoked by STAR_.
  • Anti-Hero: A Nominal Hero. Jerma is a lunatic, but compared to the likes of Demon Lord Zeraxos, The Green Screen, and The Pencil, he's the hero, and will at least generally act on threats to the universe, such as The green screen nearly destroying reality itself.
  • Announcer Chatter: In Jerma Rumble.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Occasionally with Live Commentaries.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: Averted. Jerma's a strong animal lover, and despite being an easily-angered murderous lunatic, refuses to harm them.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Plays this most often with STAR_ or Grandpa, although which role he fills depends on the video.
  • Brought Down to Normal: In Jerma Rumbles 1, 2 and Jermania, Wrestler Jerma was a huge and muscular caricature of his real self, and was one of the largest competitors. In Jerma Rumble 3, he is inexplicably much smaller and skinner, reflecting real human proportions and looking much more like his real life counterpart. He even fails to do more than one push up. And gets eliminated immediately by Gabe Newell.
  • Catchphrase:
    • A very warm and sincere "And of course, take care, everybody". Has recently been subject to being mangled by himself or STAR_ ("fake hair, everywhere").
    • "Jerma vs. STAR_, Jerma vs. STAR_, everybody wants to see this happen!"
  • Combat Commentator: Does Team Fortress 2 commentaries, explaining the action, and serves this as the announcer of Jerma Rumble.
  • Contagious Laughter: He's pretty quick to laugh at most things.
  • Cuteness Proximity: If he sees a dog in a video game, he immediately gushes and attempts to pet and/or play with it, regressing into his cutesy “Otto” voice.
  • Determinator: When he makes a video where he sets out to do a certain action (like Stipulation Team Fortress 2 videos) or to make a certain joke, he won't stop until he's fulfilled his purpose.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially as the announcer for the Jerma Rumbles, but in most videos he's fairly snarky.
  • The Ditz: He can be so scatterbrained playing certain games that a common inside joke amongst the fanbase is the suggestion that he must be pretending for the sake of a cheap laugh.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's grown increasingly cruel and sadistic in-universe on his stream, but it's made clear that his love for his fans and family has not faltered.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: His reaction to the mass genocide of defenseless animals in the Duck Dynasty video game is just pure disgust. He spends most of the stream attempting to kill the cast before they kill any more animals and his reaction to them blowing up a beaver dam with dynamite is to immediately skip the cutscene in shock.
  • Expy: He looks and sounds very similar to the Scout from Team Fortress 2. He's even from Boston. For a subscriber milestone video, he even dresses up as him.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's played as this instead of plain Affably Evil sometimes, most notably when he brutally murdered several memes pleading for their lives and pretended it was a funeral, taking sadistic joy in their deaths.
  • Height Angst: Played for laughs in his streams, to the point of being one of the recurring jokes, due to a picture of him crouching that made him look incredibly short. He later completely ran with the joke, with people claiming him to be a microscopic size. In reality, he's around 5'8, which is below average, but not hugely.
  • Hidden Depths: He's silly and funny, but is also a professional voice actor, and demonstrates amazing talent every once in a while.
  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: In his Watch_Dogs 2 stream with Etalyx, he accidentally shoots a dog attempting to shoot Etalyx, specifically a dog he just spent time bonding with. He immediately blames it on Etalyx.
  • Keet: He's very excitable and passionate about playing strange games.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In Jerma Rumble 3, he just immediately eliminated by Gabe Newell, paying him back for his jerkish behaviour in all previous Jerma Rumbles.
  • Laughably Evil: Not initially, but he evolves into this during streaming from late 2017- early 2018 and has stayed there since.
  • Jerkass:
    • Only his Jerma Rumble contestant persona, who both trash talks other fighters, fights with underhanded tactics, and freaks out and smashes Glue Man's face through a car door in a temper tantrum he threw when he lost.
    • Even the Announcer trash-talks the fighters, who have no trouble hearing every disparaging remark he makes about them when he calls them "shitty characters".
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: In the streams. He starts off by killing Santa by accident, but later decides he has to clean house by killing several memes he had grown tired off. He decides to do this by brutally murdering all but one of them. He doesn't get any better after this.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: His video/stream personality becomes increasingly villainous and psychotic, but he's actually a huge sweetheart.
  • Misplaced Retribution: After being eliminated from the second Jerma Rumble, he vented his anger on Glue Man, who didn't even participate in the rumble, and smashed his face through a car door.
  • Nervous Wreck: Have you seen him play PUBG?
  • Nice Guy: The videos where he isn't in character show that he's friendly and uplifting. He also volunteers at an animal shelter.
  • Only Sane Man: Often with STAR_, or as the announcer in Jerma Rumbles.
  • Pet the Dog: Literally, as he is a huge animal lover, especially towards dogs. He loves his dog, Otto, very much, and every time he sees a dog in a video game, he attempts to pet it. Dogs are also seen In-Universe as an Unacceptable Target for his usual video game sociopathy.
  • Precision F-Strike: Gives one immediately following him telling somebody else "Don't say swears!"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Always a Blue Oni with Grandpa, changes depending on the video when he's with STAR_.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Often has this dynamic with Etalyx in tense games, whether that be horror games like Finding Bigfoot or especially Player Unknowns Battlegrounds where Jerma spends most of the stream being a Nervous Wreck while Etalyx is The Comically Serious.
  • Signature Laugh: He has a wheezy laugh that's barely audible for the beginning of it. If the video goes nearly silent for a few seconds, you know he's in a laughing fit.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: In Jerma Rumble, Captain Crunch and Glue Man.
  • Sore Loser: His elimination in the second Jerma Rumble led him to ambush Glue Man, where he smashed his face through a car door in a fit of rage.
  • That Reminds Me of a Song: Especially while playing with STAR_, Jerma can sing and beatbox in a falsetto voice while improvising lyrics.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Inverted. In the Jerma Rumbles, he starts out as a musclebound hunk, becomes slim by the events of the third Jerma Rumble, and arrives at the latest one terribly overweight.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: His stream personality is generally a lot meaner acting, up to the point of killing people, although he's usually as friendly as ever.
  • Villain Protagonist: He’s intentionally fallen into this role in-universe in his streams, starting with a gradual shift into his characterization as more easily angered and unhinged, before the infamous plot arc where he decapitates Santa Claus with a 2x4, ending Christmas, and then proceeds to brutally murder 29 sentient memes because they personally annoyed them, (Although he was later forced to revive them) and unwittingly unleashes the universe-destroying green screen and barely manages to contain it with the Super JEX form.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds:
    • With STAR_.
    • And now with Etalyx.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?:
    • Appears to be afraid of them, In Resident Evil 7 he has a minor freakout followed by almost screaming before realizing it was just a dryer vent.
    • He's also deathly afraid of bees/wasps, to the point where an entire stream was derailed because a bee made its way into his room.

     "Jerma Universe" characters 

This folder is for characters who have made their debut in videos before the Jerma Rumbles.

MLG Grandpa

Jerma's Grandfather who lives with him. Used to do tutorials on First Person shooters like Call of Duty: Modern Warefare, on Machinama Respawn, and now is a recurring character on the Jerma channel.

Burgah Boy

Jerma's childhood best friend, has shown up in person to a few videos but is mostly referenced.

  • Does Not Like Shoes: Forget shoes, he doesn't wear pants.
  • Fat Slob
  • Modesty Towel: Strangely, wears one and nothing else for Jerma Rumble 2. Jerma remarks how it's ANYTHING BUT modest, since he's wrestling borderline completely naked.
  • Pants-Free: In every Jerma Rumble, he is either in his underpants or wearing a towel. He doesn't care.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: He throws up in response to jumpscares in horror games Jerma plays with him on Scare Saturday. Multiple times.

Otto the Dog

A dachshund Jerma owns. Occasionally goes on adventures.

  • Canine Companion
  • Gasshole: Jerma has uploaded a video where he blames Otto's farting for his inability to play Smite.
  • Out of Focus: Jerma explained that the reason Otto hasn't been in any recent videos is because of Otto's epilepsy, and the camera might trigger seizures. Otto's last appearance on the channel was in 2013.
  • Precious Puppy
  • Simpleton Voice
  • Stylistic Suck: The Otto's Big Adventure "movies" are about a minute long of dogs doing dog things, and professional movie credits at the end.
  • Tournament Arc: There was once a video of him playing with Jerma's cat, which Jerma dubbed with fight commentary as if it was a Duel to the Death. The video has since been removed.

The Egg

A strange fixture of Jerma's channel since a subscriber milestone video, who hasn't appeared again until being a part of every Jerma Rumble.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is white. Goes with being a human egg.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Even when Zeraxos is killing Jerma Rumble contestants in Jerma Rumble 3, The Egg still gets cheap shots in. Jerma calls him out for it.
  • Commuting on a Bus: His entrance in the Live-Action Jerma Rumble comes with the title card "MIA For Five Years".
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Averted, and Jerma points out that he was expecting the egg to get killed offscreen, and is happy he didn't. He also narrowly avoids getting murdered by Lord Zaraxos in Jerma Rumble 3.
    • Actually does happen to him in Live Action Rumble, where he's killed by Carl Griffinsteed running out of the ring to fight Zeraxos.
  • Freak Lab Accident: In his debut, Jerma hints that he was once a normal person, and just "an accident" happened that turned him into The Egg.
  • Gonk
  • Happily Married: When Captain Crunch wasn't around to fight Jerma in Jermania 2014, The Egg was considered as a replacement, but was having dinner with his wife. Their dinner can be seen in The Stinger for that episode.

  • Meaningful Name: He looks like a giant, human egg.
  • Nice Hat: Has a strange, mangled, black fedora.
  • Shower of Angst: In his debut, when Jerma kicks him out, he takes one. Jerma apparently knew it would happen.

The Byeahs

A species originally seen in Grand Theft Auto 4, they are giant, fat, surly, slob-like and strange. There are apparently thousands of them.

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Jerma clearly couldn't find any actors fat enough to properly resemble a Byeah for the Live Action Rumble.
    • One of them is skinny!
  • And Show It to You: One Byeah gets this courtesy of the Magician during the Live Action Rumble.
  • The Alcoholic: Apperently it's an entire species of them.
  • Fat Bastard: Every single one of them.
  • Fat Slob
  • Gonk
  • Inexplicably Identical Individuals: They're all the same overweight, long-haired, bearded, tattooed old man. They also have all the same interests.
  • Pokémon Speak: Often repeat their name "BYEEEAH", although are capable of regular speech.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: The Byeahs enjoy manly things like burgahs, barfighting... and also bug collecting.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Mcdonalds "Happy meals".
  • The Smurfette Principle: There so far has existed one female byeah, in the Judge Dredd game. note 
  • You Are Number 6: Byeahs are associated primarily with numbers, although apparently they don't actually like it, and prefer to have individual titles reflecting who they are, like "Sexy Byeah" and "King Byeah".
  • Verbal Tic: "BYEEEAH". Which was originally just a guttural noise they would make.

Captain Humphries/ Captain Ol' Bones/ Captain Blackbeard

A pirate who exists in Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed Black Flag.

Pac-Man

The classic video game character, but with a different interpretation than usual.

  • Artificial Stupidity: His AI suffers the most from this in Jerma Rumble, which led to his character.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In the first Pac-Man game Jerma plays for his channel, "Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures", you control Pac-Man by throwing things to get his attention, and he gets distracted easily. Jerma describes his attention span as "A goldfish in the first grade".
  • Big Damn Heroes: Is the one to throw the Magician out in Live Action Rumble, just because he wanted his seat.
  • Chaotic Stupid: Invites Blinky over for Halloween, and punches him in the face. For no reason.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: He and Sonic the Hedgehog work over Gabe Newell with a chair before their match even starts, but it doesn't do them any good when Gabe Newell wins regardless. Technically not cheating, since Jerma Rumble has no rules, and they weren't disqualified.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: One of the biggest in Jerma Rumble. He picks up a chair to defend a team-mate in Jermainia, than watches in awe as Gabe Newell eliminates them both.
  • The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: He and Sonic the Hedgehog can a headstart on beating up Gabe Newell before their match even starts. It's unknown if this actually affected the fight in any way.
  • Foreshadowing: An unintentional prediction, Pac-Man asks to be in Super Smash Bros. in Jerma's Ghostly Adventures playthrough. About a year later, he is confirmed for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, which Jerma plays on the show.
  • Heroic BSoD: When facing off against Gabe Newell in Jermainia.
  • Idiot Ball: Picks this up in Jerma Rumble, and doesn't stop Gabe Newell from eliminating both him and his teammate Sonic at the same time.
  • Manchild: In the Halloween video.
  • Silly Walk: In Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures.
  • Precision F-Strike: To Sir C: "You know what, Fuck you. I'm not keeping it PG in Pac-Man."
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers this to Sir C in The Ghostly Adventures of Pac-Man. "Hey, don't you scold me! You're the asshole who put the minimal amount of lemons and pineapples on the arcade machines. You are a tyrant and a scumbag. Good day. No, you know what? Fuck You."
  • Simpleton Voice: Jerma gives him this voice in Pac-Man and the Ghostly High-School Reunion video.
  • Those Two Guys: He is apparently really good friends with Sonic the Hedgehog, and the two team up, unsuccessfully, against Gabe Newell.
  • The Voiceless: In most of his appearances, including his live-action Halloween video. Only in The Ghostly Adventures game video.

The "Monopoly Guy" from Spy Party

In the game Spy Party, while playing with STAR_, the meta of the game evolves around selecting the character Jerma dubs "The Monopoly Guy" every time, and the opponent instantly shooting him in the head for being the obvious, and most funny, choice.

  • Boom, Headshot!: Happens to him every game.
  • Confusion Fu: The sole purpose for selecting him over and over again is for Jerma or STAR_ to wonder if the other one really was stupid enough to choose him again and be obvious.
  • Flat Character: He is nothing but a player avatar in Spy Party, and gets no further characterization in his Jerma Rumble appearance.
  • Pretty Little Headshots: There's no blood in spy party.
  • Nonindicative Name: Jerma acknowledges, in Jerma Rumble 2, that he looks nothing like the actual Monopoly Guy, and he more closely resembles Sir Topham Hatt.
  • One-Hit Kill: Constantly suffers this in Spy Party.
  • Rule of Funny: While playing the game seriously, it would be detrimental to be predictable and to select the same spy every time. For Jerma's comedy videos, it's the most entertaining option. For the sniper of the game, it's detrimental to try and blindly shoot a certain character on instinct without observing their character traits, but instantly shooting The Monopoly Guy is what both Jerma and STAR do best.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: After the update to the game improves the graphics, The Monopoly Guy is removed from the game. Jerma then picks "The Morgan Freeman Guy" who serves that purpose before they go back to the old graphics.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: At the start of every round, he gets headshot by a sniper again.

Demon Lord Zeraxos

"The Lord of All Hells and Demons and Hatred". Originally took over Jerma's show to play Five Nights at Freddy's, and shows up in Jerma Rumble 3.

Frank Pizza of the Boston Celtics

A player on the Boston Celtics basketball team in 1997, and fellow player of Gabe "The Glue Man" Degrossi.

  • Awesome Mc Coolname: His last name is "Pizza".
  • Badass Beard
  • Flat Character: He doesn't demonstrate a lot of character, especially compared to Gabe Degrossi.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Subverted. His entire team, in particular Gabe Degrossi who taught them this technique, have the ability to throw the ball from one end of the court to the other and make it into the basket each and every time, never missing. When Frank Pizza tires, he misses, and breaks the streak of his team.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. He shares his first name with Frank, a friend of Grandpa, who appeared in a few MLG Grandpa videos.
  • Silly Walk: Jerma dubs his run the "I have a dump in my pants run".
  • We Used to Be Friends: He used to play with Gabe Degrossi on the Boston Celtics, and in the Jerma Rumble, they fight after Gabe becomes Glueman.

Dick "Dastardly" Richards

A notorious gem thief, leading a team of thieves, from Jerma's masterpiece Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. He returns in Rat Movie 2: The Movie to try to sell fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes to the Cat Police.

  • Affably Evil: He is fairly well-mannered for a thief.
    • In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, after breaking into a bar, Dick "Dastardly" Richards introduces himself by saying "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, may I have the attention of the class? My name is Dick "Dastardly" Richards, and I'm here to take the treasure chest that's in the back room".
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, he's very polite when talking to Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, asking how they're doing and if they got his text. Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, meanwhile, is anything but polite towards Richards.
  • Back from the Dead: Both Rat Movie 2: The Movie and Jerma Rumble 3 ignores him being killed by the Giant Rat.
  • Brown Bag Mask: Part of his costume. Demon Lord Zeraxos even nicknames him "The Guy with a Bag on his Head".
  • Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality: He believes that the movie he was watching that featured the Giant Rat wasn't a work of fiction. He also states Finding Nemo was a documentary, as he saw it being filmed in Philadelphia.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Though he is much more serious than Dr. Digestion, his Mixed Metaphor in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure and Rat Movie 2: The Movie revealing he Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality shows he's a lot stranger than he lets on.
  • Comically Small Demand: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Dick "Dastardly" Richards tried to sell the fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes to the Cat Police for a measly twenty dollars per brush.
  • Deuteragonist: Both installments focus on Dick "Dastardly" Richards for about half of the story.
    • Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure introduces Richards and his allies, and they break into a bar in search for the Mayan Treasure. It isn't until the 2:25 mark when the Giant Rat appears for the first time since the opening song, who remains the protagonist for the second half of the movie.
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, after the Giant Rat flushes the Noah's Ark Toothbrush down a toilet, it's revealed everything that happened prior to the 5:30 mark was a non-fictional movie Richards and Button-Up Barry was watching. Right up until the 7:35 mark, the plot focuses on Richards and Barry collecting fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes and attempting to sell them to the Cat police. When the Giant Rat shows up yet again, Richards escapes and the Giant Rat is yet again the sole focus of the story.
  • The Dreaded: In Jerma Rumble 3, Jerma is terrified of him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He shows disgust when Dr. Digestion accidentally runs over a pedestrian.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: Inverted, Jerma was expecting him to be shorter, and he turned out to be quite tall.
  • Fatal Flaw: His inability to give up the Mayan Treasure to the rats got him killed.
  • Greed: He values the Mayan Tresure to the extent where he tells the Giant Rat he'd rather die than give it up.
  • Hidden Depths: His encounter with the Giant Rat Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure reveals he likes rats. Though it isn't enough for Richards to give up the Mayan Treasure.
  • Informed Ability: Jerma speaks highly of Richards' as a threat, but all we've seen of him is getting killed by rats and defeated in Jerma Rumble 3.
  • In-Series Nickname: Demon Lord Zeraxos refers to Richards as "The Guy with a Bag on his Head".
  • Karma Houdini: Richards receives no comeuppance for attempting to sell the fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes to the Cat Police in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Mixed Metaphor: Dick "Dastardly" Richards introduces himself with one after breaking into a bar, saying "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, may I have the attention of the class?".
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: He shows mercy on The Candy Man in Jerma Rumble 3, and is repaid for his kindness by a swift elimination from Candy Man.
  • Offstage Villainy: As dialogue from both movies reveal, Dick "Dastardly" Richards and Button-Up Barry have stolen artifacts, and they possibly stole paintings and robbed banks.
  • Pet the Dog: His evil nature is emphasized by Jerma, but strangely, he goes easy on Candy Man and doesn't eliminate him immediately when he has the chance. Jerma notes this is a rare moment of compassion.
  • Repetitive Name: The name "Dick" is short for Richard. In other words, his full name is Richard "Dastardly" Richards.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: When the Giant Rat confronts the Cat Police in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Richards slowly backs away and suggests they "sort this out".
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad:
    • Despite being the Deuteragonist of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, the first half of the movie focuses solely on Richards and his allies.
    • Him and Button-Up Barry become the focus of Rat Movie 2: The Movie in-between the scenes where Giant Rat flushes the Noah's Ark Toothbrush down a toilet and the Giant Rat confronting the Cat Police, despite only having a minor role to the plot.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Him and Button-Up Barry have a common tendency to bicker whenever the latter disagrees with the former. He also calls out Dr. Digestion when he accidentally runs over a pedestrian.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Dick "Dastardly" Richards reappears in Rat Movie 2: The Movie and Jerma Rumble 3, despite being killed by the Giant Rat in the first movie.
  • Villain Protagonist: In both movies, Dick "Dastardly" Richards plays the role of Deuteragonist. He attempts to steal the Mayan Treasure in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, and collects fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes with the intent to sell them to the Cat Police in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.

Button-Up Barry

One of the three thieves that attempts to steal the Mayan Treasure in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. Out of the trio, he's the most realistically grounded and skeptical character. In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, he reluctantly agrees to accompany Dick "Dastardly" Richard to find and sell fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes to the Cat Police.

  • Dirty Coward: Barry flees when the Giant Rat grabs Gerrard. He made the right call, but leaving his allies behind cements him of this trope.
  • Karma Houdini:
    • Subverted in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. Though he flees when he sees the Giant Rat and outlives his allies, he is later killed when Earth explodes.
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, meanwhile, Barry receives no comeuppance for attempting to sell the fake Noah's Ark Toothbrushes to the Cat Police.
  • No Name Given: Until his name was revealed in a community content night on March 2020, Button-Up Barry's name was anonymous.
  • Only Sane Man: Barry the only one who seems to have any sense. It (temporary) saves his life when he decides to flee instead of facing the rats.
  • Pet the Dog: Barry usually shows annoyance and contempt towards Dick "Dastardly" Richards due to not agreeing with what he says. However, when Richards tells Barry about something he wants to tell his doctor, but is too scared to hear what he says, Barry states Richards' situation is "just... grim, pal" in a sincere tone.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!:
    • In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Button-Up Barry decides he's had enough of it when the Rats get a hold of Gerrard, and exits stage left.
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Barry runs away without saying a word when the Giant Rat interrupts the deal with the Cat Police.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: He shows annoyance towards Dick "Dastardly" Richard and Dr. Digestion, the former due to not trusting him to pull of the Mayan Treasure heist and since he Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality, and the latter due to him accidentally running over a pedestrian and crashing into two taxi cars.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Button-Up Barry reappears in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, despite previously being killed off via the Earth exploding.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Button-Up Barry is never heard from again in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure after running away from the Giant Rat. This is made irrelevant by the Earth exploding at the end of the movie.

Dr. Digestion

One of the three thieves that attempts to steal the Mayan Treasure in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. He appears to be missing a few screws in his head, but he's not as harmless as he looks. Unlike his teammates, he has yet to make a reappearance.

  • Affably Evil: Despite being a thief, he is laid back and friendly. When he sees the Giant Rat, he compares them to the rats he saw in his favorite movie "The Movie", and asks the Giant Rat if it's his favorite movie as well. After killing the Giant Rat in self-defense, he compliments Frozen (2013), the Giant Rat's choice for his favorite movie, and wonders if it should be his favorite movie instead.
  • Anti-Villain: Aside from him being a thief, he barely qualifies as a villain. The people he killed while driving a car were accidental, and he kills the first Giant Rat out of self-defense. He's also much more friendly than his allies.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite his goofy demeanor, he was able to kill the Giant Rat in a single kick.
  • A Birthday, Not a Break: Apparently, the Mayan Treasure heist in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure took place during Dr. Digestion's birthday. While this allows him to drive the car, he gets killed on the same day. The world explodes too, but he's not alive to worry about that.
  • Deadly Doctor: Though he probably isn't a real doctor, he's strong enough to kill the Giant Rat with a single kick.
  • Drives Like Crazy: He accidentally runs over a pedestrian and crashes into two cars on his way to the Mayan Treasure.
  • Dr. Jerk: Inverted. He is the most friendly character in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, and he doesn't seem qualified to be an actual doctor.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The very first thing Dr. Digestion does is stare at the audience and make a random noise.
  • Friendly Enemy: Dr. Digestion is surprisingly friendly with the Giant Rat, even after the latter killed Dick "Dastardly" Richard, and they have a brief conversation before fighting. Doesn't stop Dr. Digestion from killing the Giant Rat in self-defense.
  • Killed Off for Real: Richards returns for the Jerma Rumble and the Rat Movie's sequel (along with Button-Up Barry) despite getting killed, but his purple accomplice does not.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: He doesn't show any malice towards anyone, even having a friendly conversation with the Giant Rat after the latter killed Dick "Dastardly" Richards. In contrast to his allies, Dick "Dastardly" Richards and Button-Up Barry are much smarter than he is, yet they constantly bicker.
  • Mad Doctor: Downplayed, if not averted, as his strange behavior is played for laughs, and he isn't Ax-Crazy in the slightest.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Downplayed. Though he has "Dr." in his name, he's barely evil or intelligent. He's definitely strange, though.
  • No Name Given: Until his name was revealed in a community content night on March 2020, Dr. Digestion's name was anonymous.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Due to using Willy's model, he always has a wacky smirk regardless of the situation.
  • Psychotic Smirk: He's always seen smirking regardless of the situation. While he isn't malicious, he seems to live in his own world.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: Dr. Digestion from the first movie is absent in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, which is notable mainly because Dick "Dastardly" Richards and Button-Up Barry are well and alive again. Dick "Dastardly" Richards' still wears the patch with Dr. Digestion's face on it, which is the closest thing to Dr. Digestion getting any acknowledgment.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: He killed the Giant Rat in a single kick. In turn, the second Giant Rat kills him in a single pounce.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Averted. As of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Dr. Digestion remains the only member of the Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure's main cast to stay dead after the events of the Mayan Treasure incident.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: While Dick "Dastardly" Richards and Button-Up Barry reappear in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Dr. Digestion receives no acknowledgement whatsoever.

The Rats

They prey at night, they stalk at night. They're the rats from The Rat Movie. The Giant Rat makes all of the rules.

  • Anti-Hero: They're a group of thieving rats, but have a strong sense of duty towards each other and overall come off as the moral victors compared to the incompetent police force, the criminal mastermind Dick Dastardly Richard and the evil alien cat police.
  • Blatant Lies: In the Rat Mixtape, the rats state that Michael's been "such a good boy this year". Michael has been anything but a good boy.
  • Decapitated Army: Averted in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. After Dr. Digestion kills the Giant Rat, one of the small rats quickly grows in size to become the next Giant Rat and pounces on Dr. Digestion.
  • Leitmotif: Their Rat theme, which is a lyrical version of Hangin Out.
  • Pokémon Speak: "Rats, rats, rats, rats, rats". Possibly part of their Leitmotif.
  • Villain Song: Have a popular one in the beginning of the first Rat Movie, quoted verbatim by the Announcer of the Jerma Rumble.
  • Vocal Evolution: Normally, the small rats speak in a squeaky voice. However, whenever a small rat grows giant to become the next Giant Rat, their voice changes accordingly.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Or, to be more precise; "What Happened to the Rats?". At the start of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, two small rats occupancy the Giant Rat during the sequel pitch. After encountering someone they believe is the pizza delivery guy, one of the small rats leaves to go to their car and asks the Giant Rat to save him a slice, while the other small rat leaves to go home to get a chicken nugget. Both of the small rats are never seen or mentioned again.

Giant Rat

In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, the Giant Rat makes all of the rules for his rat followers. Him and his rat allies attempted to steal the Mayan Treasure, succeeding right until the Cat Police apprehend him. He returns in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, where he visits a movie executive for a sequel pitch for the first Rat Movie. During the pitch, he is abducted by alien dogs and learns about the Noah's Ark Toothbrush. The Giant Rat has also appeared in Jerma Rumble 3 and the Live Action Rumble.

  • Affably Evil: He is laid back and friendly, despite being a thief.
    • In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, he has a friendly conversation with Dr. Digestion on their favorite movies before the Giant Rat attempts to kill him. Also, the second Giant Rat speaks with a polite demeanor when attempting to trick Sargent Pickles into thinking he's a bartender.
    • In Live Action Jerma Rumble, he attempts to befriend the Bottom Half of The Two Person Horse.
  • Affectionate Nickname: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the head of the Dog Capital called the Giant Rat "Rat King" out of respect for the Giant Rat's authority.
  • Authority in Name Only: As the beginning of Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals, being giant doesn't mean his followers will obey him. The first Giant Rat learns this the hard way when one of his comrade rats refuses to help him out of a toilet and flushes him down.
  • Badass Adorable: He may be a big, dopey rat, but he's also super strong and can kill people in a single pounce.
  • Befriending the Enemy: In the Live Action Jerma Rumble, he attempts to befriend the Bottom Half of The Two Person Horse, but Winston interferes before he's able to do so.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He may act like a harmless idiot, but he's still a large rat with Super Strength, as Dick "Dastardly" Richards learns the hard way.
  • Big "NO!": In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the first Giant Rat gives off one when he gets flushed down the toilet during Michael's birthday party.
  • Blatant Lies: He tries to convince Sargent Pickles he is a bartender by saying "Hello sir, welcome to the Rat Café. There's no rats here. There's just, uh, hamburgers". Sargent Pickles immediately calls his bluff, but admits he was just pulling his leg.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The giant rat is eliminated from Jerma Rumble 3 almost immediately by Count Chocula, despite having high stats.
  • Decoy Protagonist:
    • In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, the first Giant Rat is anti-climatically killed off with surprisingly little screentime when Dr. Digestion kicks him in self-defense. One of the small rats quickly quickly grows in size to become the next Giant Rat, and the second Giant Rat remains the protagonist for the rest of the movie.
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the first Giant Rat doesn't even get a full minute of screentime before he's flushed down the toilet by one of the small rats in order to become the next Giant Rat.
  • Delayed Reaction: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, when the movie executive is launched across the room after the Dog's robotic man crashes into him, it took him several seconds before the Giant Rat registered the fact that the movie executive is no longer standing in front of him.
  • Dumb Muscle: He's a very slow thinker, but he has the strength to make up for it.
  • Face/Heel Double-Turn: By the events of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the Giant Rat Took a Level in Kindness offscreen. Near the end of the movie, the Cat Police are revealed to be Evil All Along.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Both him and his rat allies fail to notice the cat attached to the movie executive's head during sequel pitch for the first Rat Movie.
  • Flunky Boss: He's often accompanied with two small rats by his side.
  • Heel–Face Return: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, for some unexplained reason, the Giant Rat (and presumably the rest of the rats) is now the hero and Gerrard is on their side.
  • Heroic Rematch: Downplayed in Rat Movie 2: The Movie. After being apprehended by the Cat Police in the previous installment, the Giant Rat folds their attempt to obtain the Noah's Ark Toothbrush. However, the Giant Rat doesn't get to defeat the Cat Police, as he flees when he realizes the Cat Police's true form is too much for him to handle.
  • Hidden Depths: His encounter with Dr. Digestion in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure reveals he watched Frozen (2013) and decided that it's his favorite movie since he likes Elsa and Anna. According to Jerma, the Giant Rat's other favorite movie is Aladdin.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton:
    • He has a friendly conversation with Dr. Digestion on their favorite movies before the Giant Rat attempts to kill him.
    • He attempts to befriend the Bottom Half of The Two Person Horse during the Live Action Jerma Rumble.
  • King Mook: The Giant Rat looks exactly like his rat allies, but is around three times bigger than them. In fact, the small rats simply have to grow in size in order to become the next Giant Rat.
  • Klingon Promotion: One little rat becomes the new Giant Rat after flushing the previous one down the toilet.
  • Large and in Charge: The Giant Rat makes all of the rules. In both movies, when the Giant Rat gets killed or put out of commission, one of the small rats quickly grows giant to replace him.
  • Legacy Character: When one Giant Rat dies, another grows in size to take it's place. The Giant Rat in the Jerma Rumble most likely isn't even the one from The Rat movie, considering how the Rat Movie ends.
  • Oh, Crap!: When the Cat Police shows up during the Mayan Treasure incident, he has a panic attack.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: When Sargent Pickles walks into the bar that held the Mayan Treasure, the Giant Rat attempts to masquerade as a bartender. He tells Sargent Pickles he's in the Rat Café, there's no rats in the café, and there's only hamburgers. Sargent Pickles seems to have fallen for the Giant Rats trick, but follows up by telling him he knows he's a rat disguised as a bartender. Then he admits he's just kidding and passes the Giant Rat off as innocent.
  • Rat King: He makes all of the rules for his rat followers. The head of the Dog Capital even calls the Giant Rat "Rat King" out of respect for the Giant Rat's authority.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: At the end of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, upon finding out the Cat Police have arrived, the Giant Rat immediatly abandons the Mayan Treasure and tells the small rat to drive them away as fast as possible.
  • Simpleton Voice: He has a dopey voice and a personality to go with it.
  • Single-Stroke Battle:
    • He effortlessly take out Gerrard the Guardian of the Mayan temple, and while the first Giant Rat is slain when killing the thieves, it's still a quick fight.
    • The first Giant Rat is on the receiving end by Dr. Digestion, and dies after one kick.
  • Stealthy Colossus: Despite being the size of a car, he was able to sneak up on Gerrard and grab him without being spotted.
  • Super Strength: The Giant Rat is shown to be capable of carrying Gerrard, who was wearing suit of armor, without being weighed down in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, and effortlessly throws a car to the side in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By the events of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the Giant Rat has overcome him fear of the Cat Police. It isn't until the Cat Police merge into their true form that the Giant Rat flees.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: The Giant Rat's successor in the second film is a little slower on the uptake.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: The Giant Rat is far less villainous and end up saving the day in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Uncertain Doom: The first Giant Rat in Rat Movie 2: The Movie is quickly disposed of when a small rat flushes him down the toilet. Since the first Giant Rat is never heard from again, it's unknown if he drowned or was harmlessly sent into the sewer.
  • The Unfought: Despite killing Dick "Dastardly" Richards and Dr. Digestion in the first movie, as well as being in the center of the conflict between the dogs and cats, the Giant Rat never fights anyone during the events of Rat Movie 2: The Movie. He does threaten the Cat Police, but he flees when they turn into a Giant Skeleton. Unlike most examples, the protagonist is the one who is never fought.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After keeping his composure even when being interrogated by Sargent Pickles, the Giant Rat has a panic attack upon finding out the Cat Police have arrived.
    Small Rat: Boss, we've got big problems; the Cat Police are here!
    Giant Rat: Are you kidding me right now?! Cat Police?! Get us the fuck out of here! Drive the car! Get us out! Let's speed it up! We gotta get the fuck out of here!
  • Villain Protagonist:
    • Though the Cat Police are the heroic force of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, the thieving Giant Rat is the lead character who gets the most focus when Dick "Dastardly" Richards is killed off.
    • Rat Movie 2: The Movie averts this, as the Giant Rat Took a Level in Kindness by the events of the movie.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Or, to be more precise; "What Happened to the Giant Rat?". The first Giant Rat in Rat Movie 2: The Movie is never heard from again after being flushed down the toilet during Michael's birthday party.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Cat Police?: When the Cat Police shows up, the Giant Rat has a panic attack.

Sargent Pickles

A cop that investigates a bar where the Mayan Treasure is located.

  • Failed a Spot Check: He fails to notice three obvious clues that rats have broken into the bar.
    • He saw the Giant Rat in bar, who claimed to be a bartender, and responded by telling him to be careful because they is apparently a giant rat around.
    • He fails to spot the huge treasure chest lying on the floor in the bar.
    • He also doesn't notice the small rat hiding on his back until it jumps off of him.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Double Subverted when he encounters the Giant Rat posing as a bartender. He acts as if he fell for the trick, informs him he's aware he's a rat, and admits he's just kidding and passes the Giant Rat off as innocent.
  • Oh, Crap!: He shouts "What the fuck?!" when a small rat jumps off his back and into a police car.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His partner called him 'Sargent Pickles' because he was sidetracked with wanting to eat pickles. His real name is never hinted.
  • Only Sane Man: Subverted. Though he's much more competent than his partner, which isn't saying much, he falls for the Giant Rat's Paper-Thin Disguise, only pretending to see through it as a joke.
  • Overranked Soldier: It's surprising that he reached the rank of Sargent, considering he fails to notice that the bartender is a large rat.
  • Police Are Useless: Double Subverted. He's portrayed as a competent and serious officer right until he admits that he was just joking about the bartender being a rat.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: He's completely absent in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, not even receiving a passing mention.
  • Super Gullible: He takes the Giant Rat's statement that "There's no rats here (in the bar)." at face value.

Sargent Pickles' Partner

An overweight cop that's missing a few screws on his head and only has the slightest grasp on his job.

  • Delicious Distraction: He gets sidetracked by pickles when the bartender tells him he saw a giant rat, calls his partner 'Sargent Pickles', and asks him to get candy corn.
  • Failed a Spot Check: He didn't notice the small rat hiding on Sargent Pickles' back.
  • Fat Idiot: He's both overweight and highly incompetent to his job. During the Mayan Treasure incident, he gets sidetracked by pickles and candy corn.
  • No Name Given: While his partner is given the nickname 'Sargent Pickles', his own name is an afterthought.
  • Overranked Soldier: The fact that his partner is a Sargent implies that he's also a Sargent. His dialogue makes it clear he has only has the slightest grasp on his job. He doesn't even know how to draw.
  • Police Are Useless: He has only has the slightest grasp on being a cop, gets distracted by his hunger, and admits he doesn't know how to draw.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: He's completely absent in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, not even receiving a passing mention.

Sargent Scritchy-Scratch

A member of the cat police that relieved Sargent Pickles and his partner of his duties during the Mayan Treasure incident, and later apprehends the Giant Rat when he tries to escape. Sargent Scritchy-Scratch returns Rat Movie 2: The Movie, where both him and the Cat Police are revealed to be racist intergalactic conquerors.

  • Anti-Villain: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, while Sargent Scritchy-Scratch did strike a deal with Dick "Dastardly" Richards for the (fake) Noah's Ark Toothbrushes, he did it so that the Cat Police could protect the toothbrushes from falling into enemy hands. Furthermore, he's highly reluctant about working with Richards, openly voicing his contempt. Or at least this is what initially appears to be happening, as Scritchy-Scratch then reveals that he wants use the toothbrushes not to protect Earth, but to "decimate this disgusting planet".
  • Badass Adorable: His appearance and cutesy voice does nothing to hide how dangerous he is, as he easily defeats the Giant Rat at the end of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals that he's even more dangerous than previously thought, as he absorbed and/or decimated over two thousand galaxies, and is capable of merging with his Cat Police officers to become a giant skeleton that's just as strong as the aforementioned galaxies.
  • Big Bad: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is revealed to be behind the conspiracy to obtain Noah's Ark Toothbrush. He plans to use it to decimate Earth, as well as any other planet the Cat Police hasn't absorbed and/or decimated.
  • Cute Kitten:
    • In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is highly optimistic and cheerful at all times. His cutesy voice reflects this.
    • Averted in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, where he Took a Level in Jerkass offscreen, acting much more cynical and arrogant as a result. Even his voice changes into a Mean Brit impression. As it turns out, his personality in the first movie was all an act.
  • Death by Irony: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's final line states the Cat Police saved the world, and they make the world a better place. Before Sargent Scritchy-Scratch finishes speaking, Earth explodes.
  • Dirty Cop: Rat Movie 2: The Movie hints a darker side to Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, as he struck a deal with Dick "Dastardly" Richards to gain the (fake) Noah's Ark Toothbrushes. Then all subtly is thrown out of the window when Sargent Scritchy-Scratch reveals his plan to decimate Earth.
  • Evil All Along: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, though it initially looks as if Sargent Scritchy-Scratch pulled off a Face–Heel Turn, it's revealed that he's been an intergalactic conqueror for centuries.
  • Evil Is Petty: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch brazenly refuses to pay for the (fake) Noah's Ark Toothbrushes that Dick "Dastardly" Richards offered him, despite the fact that Sargent Scritchy-Scratch would only have to pay a measly twenty dollars per brush.
  • Fantastic Racism: If Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's "how we are about to decimate this disgusting planet" comment is anything to go by, both him and the Cat Police have a strong hatred of the residents of Earth.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: "Scritchy-Scratch" isn't what you'd expect a highly competent and feared police officer to be called. Or an intergalactic conqueror with over two thousand galaxies worth of blood on his hands.
  • For Great Justice: Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is an optimistic cop that wants to make the world a better place. It's all a cover-up to hide Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's true nature.
  • Hate Sink: Sargent Scritchy-Scratch becomes one in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, since he Took a Level in Jerkass offscreen. After his Evil All Along reveal, he becomes even more unlikable. Unlike the Giant Rat or Dick "Dastardly" Richards and his allies, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch in Rat Movie 2: The Movie is neither charismatic nor humorous, being a dead serious conqueror with a potential racist streak.
  • Hates Small Talk: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch responds to Dick "Dastardly" Richards asking how they're doing by telling him they don't have time for small talk.
  • Hero Antagonist:
    • Though he's the main antagonist in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, he's an unambiguously heroic and optimistic cop who ultimately defeats the Giant Rat.
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch averts this trope, as he's revealed to be Evil All Along. Though it did initially seem as if he wanted to protect the (fake) Noah's Ark Toothbrushes before he revealed his true motives.
  • Jerkass: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch speaks in a snide tone talking to Dick "Dastardly" Richards and the Giant Rat, and refers to Earth as "this disgusting planet".
  • Knight of Cerebus: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, unlike the Giant Rat and Dick "Dastardly" Richards and his allies, who are all Laughably Evil, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is played entirely seriously as an antagonist, or at least as serious as a British alien cat can get.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's last words are "We make the world a better-".
  • Killer Rabbit: Unlike the Giant Rat, which had Super Strength due to his size, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is just a regular sized cat. He's also a highly feared officer that manages to defeat the Giant Rat at the end of the first film. Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals he's also capable of merging with his Cat Police officers to become a giant skeleton, which has the power of over two-thousand galaxies.
  • Mask of Sanity: His heroic and optimistic bravado is revealed to be all a façade in Rat Movie 2: The Movie. When he drops his masquerade, he reveals himself to be a smug and hateful conqueror who wants to decimate Earth out of prejudice.
  • The Mean Brit: After he Took a Level in Jerkass by the events of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, he developed a British accent to reflect his holier attitude. Also doubles as Evil Brit when he's revealed to be Evil All Along, as well as Aliens of London.
  • Minor Major Character: Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is the Hero Antagonist of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure who defeats the Giant Rat, and is revealed to have absorbed and/or decimated over two-thousand galaxies, and it's implied he would've killed the Giant Rat were it not for Gerrard's Heroic Sacrifice in Rat Movie 2: The Movie. However, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's backstory is unknown, and he's absent in both movies until near the end.
  • No Name Given: Unlike Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's name is never stated in Rat Movie 2: The Movie. Because of this, the audience might not realize they're the same person.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's end goal is to wipe out all of the galaxies in existence until only the planets the Cat Police control remain. By the events of the movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch had absorbed and/or decimated over two-thousand galaxies.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch was a heroic and optimistic cop. So in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, it's clear that something's wrong when Sargent Scritchy-Scratch starts speaking in an angry and monotonous voice. A few seconds later, it's revealed that he was a racist intergalactic conqueror all along, and his personality in the first movie was all an act he put up to hide how bloodthirsty he is.
  • Outranking Your Job: It's implied that he's the leader of the Cat Police, or at least a large portion of it, despite being a mere Sargent. Also, he has authority over the human police force.
  • Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: Subverted. Initially, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch in Rat Movie 2: The Movie seems to be the rude hero to Dick "Dastardly" Richards' polite villain, but it turns out Sargent Scritchy-Scratch was Evil All Along.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, he denounces Earth (and by proxy, the residents of Earth) as "disgusting" while speaking with Dick "Dastardly" Richards.
  • Really 700 Years Old: During his confrontation with the Giant Rat in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch casually reveals that he and the Cat Police have lived for centuries. This is likely because aliens have a longer lifespan.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch doesn't appear until near the end of the movie, but in his screentime he was able to defeat the Giant Rat, and it's implied that his defeat somehow triggered the Cat Police UFO to decimate Earth.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals that his heroic bravado was all a façade, and he was an Evil All Along intergalactic conqueror. This conveniently ignores the fact that, in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch made a speech to his squad that they make the world a better place, and he was unaware that the Cat Police would blow up the Earth after the Giant Rat's defeat.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, he makes it clear that he doesn't enjoy accociating himself with Dick "Dastardly" Richards, and would've arrested him on the spot if it wasn't for their deal. This is likely due to Richards being a proffesional thief, and also because Richards isn't a member of Scritchy-Scratch's race.
  • Token Good Teammate: Subverted. Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's speech about making the world a better place at the end of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure makes it look like he's the only member of the Cat Police that isn't aware of the Cat Police's true nature. However, Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals it was all an act and he's just as eager to decimate Earth as the rest of his fellow Cat Police officers.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Sargent Scritchy-Scratch in Rat Movie 2: The Movie is much ruder and holier than he was in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, which is likely due to him dropping the 'heroic cop' masquerade.
  • Undercover When Alone: Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's speech about making the world a better place at the end of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure becomes this when Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals he was planning to decimate Earth the entire time. When he made the speech, the only individuals around to hear it were his fellow Cat Police officers, who were fully aware that Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's heroic bravado was nothing more than a façade.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Sargent Scritchy-Scratch reappears in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, despite previously being killed off via the Earth exploding.
  • The Unmasqued World: By the events of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch has dropped his 'heroic cop' masquerade and voluntary reveals himself to be an intergalactic conqueror to Dick "Dastardly" Richards, despite the fact that Richards did not suspect Scritchy-Scratch's true motives.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is surprisingly threatening for a villain for the lighthearted Rat Movie trilogy, especially when compared to the Giant Rat and Dick "Dastardly" Richards.
  • Viler New Villain: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the Giant Rat was no longer the main villain, and Dick "Dastardly" Richards was still a side villain, so Sargent Scritchy-Scratch was revealed to be Evil All Along in order to become the movie's new antagonist. While the Giant Rat and Dick "Dastardly" Richards both are motivated by greed, their crimes don't go beyond robbery or self-defense. Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, meanwhile, had absorbed and/or decimated over two thousand galaxies in the past centuries, and he plans to do the same to Earth. While the Giant Rat and Dick "Dastardly" Richards are both Affably Evil and have their share of humanizing traits, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch is a racist Jerkass with no noticeable redeeming qualities.
  • Villain Respect: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, in a possibly genuine tone, notes that the Giant Rat's DNA would've fused wonderfully with the Cat Police had the Giant Rat surrendered the Noah's Ark Toothbrush.
  • Villains Blend in Better: Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure had Sargent Scritchy-Scratch put up a convincing heroic and optimistic demeanor, but Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals it's nothing more then an act to hide his true intentions. The Giant Rat, in contrast, tries to pose as a bartender by going around the counter and claiming "There's no rats here.", and only Sargent Pickles' gullibility keeps the Giant Rat's cover from being blown.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, the Cat Police officer that's respected by the human police force and feared by criminals, turns out to have secretly been an Omnicidal Maniac all along.
  • Vocal Evolution: As oppose to the cheery voice in the first movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch speaks in a deep and monotonous voice in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, reflecting Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's and the Cat Police's new characterization as evil aliens.
  • Walking Spoiler: A lot of the tropes involving him spoil his Evil All Along reveal in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Wham Line: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch states, after Dick "Dastardly" Richards asks them if they got his text, that the least of Richards worry's should not text messages, but instead how they're going to decimate Earth. Not only does this reveal the Cat Police were Evil All Along, it also reveals the Cat Police may have been responsible for the Earth-Shattering Kaboom at the end of the first installment.

Cat Police

The Cat Police is a police force in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure and Rat Movie 2: The Movie. They're established to work alongside the human police force. As the second installment reveals, they actually aren't police at all, but are aliens who transform into a giant skeleton.

  • Aliens Are Bastards: Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals the Cat Police is run by intergalactic conquerors, as previously hinted in the first movie.
  • Alien Invasion: The Cat Police are implied to be this in the first movie, and are confirmed to be aliens in the second.
  • Ambiguously Evil:
    • Though they're portrayed as a heroic force in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, the ending implies they were aliens masquerading as a police force. However, it's unclear if this is truly the case, or if it was a mere coincidence that the UFO had a cat head.
    • Rat Movie 2: The Movie removes the ambiguity, as they're confirmed to be the aliens responsible for Earth's destruction in the first film, and they attempt steal the Noah's Ark Toothbrush in order to destroy Earth yet again.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, after they succeed in apprehending the Giant Rat, a Cat Police UFO decimates Earth. Though only viewers who've seen Rat Movie 2: The Movie would realize why it's a victory on their behalf, as it reveals that decimating Earth was their plan all along.
  • Cute Kitten:
    • The Cat Police in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure are friendly cops with a great sense of justice.
    • The Cat Police in Rat Movie 2: The Movie averts this trope, as they are revealed to be snide and malicious aliens who just happen to be kittens.
  • Dem Bones: Their "true form" is that of a giant skeleton.
  • Dirty Cop: Rat Movie 2: The Movie features a squad of Cat Police that were associated with Dick "Dastardly" Richards and planned to purchase (fake) Noah's Ark Toothbrushes from him. Then it's revealed they are aliens masquerading as a police force who plan to decimate Earth.
  • The Dividual: Type 2. Aside from the Giant Rat calling them "intergalactic space-beings", Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's unit are always referred as "Cat Police" and never as "Cat Police officers". Which is fitting, since Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals they're capable of merging into one being. Also, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch's unit is never seen separated.
  • The Dreaded:
    • The Giant Rat is terrified by the Cat Police, and hearing that they've arrived on the crime scene causes the Giant Rat's Villainous Breakdown.
    • Dick "Dastardly" Richards, when attempting to make deal with the Cat Police, speaks anxiously but calmly to Sargent Scritchy-Scratch. When the Giant Rat interferes, he uses the diversion to escape.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: It's heavily implied that they caused one at the end of the first film, if the UFO with the cat head is anything to go by. Earth got better, though.
  • Establishing Character Moment:
    • The Cat Police are introduced in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure by driving to the crime scene at the bar with heroic fanfare.
    • The Cat Police are reintroduced in Rat Movie 2: The Movie with Sargent Scritchy-Scratch asking Dick "Dastardly" Richards if he brought the Noah's Ark Toothbrushes in an enraged tone, and tells Richards they're about to decimate Earth.
  • Evil All Along:
    • The ending of Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure implies that the Cat Police were responsible for Earth's destruction, as the UFO that presumably destroyed it had the head of a cat. Despite the fact that it wasn't until the sequel that this ambiguity was cleared up, Jerma considers this reveal to be as emotionally impactful as the ending of Avengers: Infinity War.
    • In the second film, they are revealed to be the true antagonists of the saga, not the Rats. They're intergalactic conquerors masquerading as a police force, who plan to use the Noah's Ark Toothbrush in order to decimate Earth. To emphasize that they were always evil and didn't pull a Face–Heel Turn, Sargent Scritchy-Scratch states they've been searching for the Noah's Ark Toothbrush for centuries, and their true form states they absorbed and/or decimated over two-thousand galaxies.
  • Evil Laugh: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the Cat Police's true form laughs wildly when chasing the Giant Rat. After defeating Gerrard, they silently laugh when preparing to finish Gerrard off.
  • Fusion Dance: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, The Cat Police transform into their true form by fusing. Even the police car joins in with the fusing. They also planned to have the Giant Rat fuse with them if he handed over the Noah's Ark Toothbrush, but the Giant Rat refused.
  • Hero Antagonist:

  • Heroic Canines, Villainous Felines: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, it turns out that the Evil All Along Cat Police have had rivals in the form of the Dog Capital, who are benevolent aliens.
  • Informed Ability: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, their "true form" is stated to have the power of over two-thousand galaxies. However, Gerrard manages to wrestle with the Cat Police long enough for the Giant Rat to escape, when Gerrard logically should have been killed instantly.
  • Karma Houdini: By the end of Rat Movie 2: The Movie, none of the members of the Cat Police have faced any consequences for absorbing and/or decimating over two-thousand galaxies or killing Gerrard, unless their failure to stop the Giant Rat from destroying the Noah's Ark Toothbrush qualifies as comeuppance.
  • Leitmotif: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, Heroic Ending plays when the Cat Police arrive at the crime scene at the bar. This song does not play when the Cat Police reappear in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, likely to foreshadow that they've dropped their 'heroic police force' masquerade.
  • Nominal Importance: With the exception of Sargent Scritchy-Scratch, who's also the only one with spoken lines, the names of the Cat Police officers are unknown.
  • Offstage Villainy: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, if the Cat Police's true form's boast is anything to go by, the Cat Police have absorbed and/or decimated over two-thousand galaxies.
  • One-Winged Angel: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, after being denied the Noah's Ark Toothbrush by the Giant Rat, they transform into their true form, which has the appearance of a giant skeleton.
  • Really 700 Years Old: As Rat Movie 2: The Movie reveals, the Cat Police officers have lived for an untold amount of centuries. This is likely because aliens have a longer lifespan.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, they turn out to be intergalactic conquerors seeking the Noah's Ark Toothbrushes to obtain the DNA of every living animal on earth, with which they intend to decimate the Earth with.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, the Cat Police's true form had the power of over two-thousand galaxies. It's also very slow, as it fails to catch up with the Giant Rat when the latter runs away, and Gerrard is able to dodge multiple attacks before being defeated.
  • Walking Spoiler: For Rat Movie 2: The Movie. Turns out they were evil aliens masquerading as a police force.

Gerrard

"Not so fast! You stand before Gerrard, guardian of the treasure chest of the Mayan Temple, and I will make sure to gr- Hey! Hey, what- What are you doing?". Garrard is the mysterious self-proclaimed guardian of the treasure chest of the Mayan temple. Despite his imitating appearance, he is easily defeated by the Giant Rat in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure. He returns in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, where he teams out with the Giant Rat to stop the Cat Police from decimating Earth.

  • Badass Normal: He was able to hold his own against the Cat Police's true form, which had the power of over two-thousand galaxies without any assistance.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure he ambushes Dick "Dastardly" Richards and his allies when they try to steal the Mayan Treasure. Though the diversion allows the bartender to escape, The Giant Rat defeats him before Gerrard was able to attack the thieves.
    • In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, when the Giant Rat is being chased by the Cat Police, Gerrard ambushes the Cat Police so the Giant Rat will have enough time to escape.
  • Boisterous Weakling: Speaks like a showmanship-filled knight, yet gets defeated effortlessly in both installments. It isn't until the end of Rat Movie 2: The Movie that he's able to back up his boasts, even if it's temporary.
  • Determinator: He took on the Cat Police's true form, which had the power of over two-thousand galaxies, knowing full well that he cannot win, and held his own against them.
  • Disney Villain Death: Gerrard meets his end when the Giant Rat drops him down a chasm in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure.
  • Easily Forgiven: Gerrard shows no contempt for the Giant Rat killing him, and even agrees to team up with him in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Enemy Mine: Downplayed. He teams up with the Giant Rat, who had killed Gerrard in the previous installment, to take down the Cat Police in Rat Movie 2: The Movie. However, the Giant Rat Took a Level in Kindness at that point.
  • Evil Will Fail: Invoked by Gerrard in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, where he shouts "Evil will never win!" before ambushing the Cat Police's true form.
  • For Great Justice: His primary motivation is to smite evildoers. Rat Movie 2: The Movie has him shout "Evil will never win!" before ambushing the Cat Police's true form.
  • Hero Antagonist: The reason the Giant Rat had to defeat him in Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure was because he was protecting the treasure the rats wanted. Hench why he's no longer an antagonist after the Giant Rat Took a Level in Kindness by the events of Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Gerrard lets the Giant Skeleton take him so that the Giant Rat can get the toothbrush and bring it to Mount Doom.
  • Incoming Ham:
    • He introduces himself in both installments by shouting "Not so fast!".
    • Right before his Big Damn Heroes moment in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, Gerrard shouts "Evil will never win!" before ambushing the Cat Police's true form.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: No one knows who Gerrard is, or how he became the guardian of the treasure chest of the Mayan Temple. Also, although he has no superpowers to speak of, he was able to hold his own against the Cat Police's true form, which had the power of over two-thousand galaxies, when he logically should have been killed instantly.
  • Iron Butt-Monkey: Both of his appearances has him get defeated with little fanfare. Despite this, he never gives up.
  • Killed Offscreen: His final moments in Rat Movie 2: The Movie have him defeated by the Cat Police's true form, and the scene cuts to the Giant Rat before Gerrard is executed.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: He both dresses like a knight and speaks like one. He also has a strong sense of justice.
  • Leitmotif: Hero's Coming plays in the scenes where Gerrard appears.
  • Minor Major Character: In Rat Movie: Mystery of the Mayan Treasure, he is the guardian of the titular Mayan Treasure, and in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, his sacrifice buys the Giant Rat enough time to bring Noah's Ark Toothbrush to Mount Doom. Despite this, his screentime in both movies is less than a minute, and his backstory is never hinted upon.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: Zig-Zagged in Rat Movie 2: The Movie. Due to how slow the Cat Police's true form was, it's possible that the Giant Rat could've outrun it, making the time Gerrard bought by holding off the Cat Police pointless. However, it's also possible that the Cat Police could've caught up with the Giant Rat by chasing the latter until he gets exhausted.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After spending the series as an Iron Butt-Monkey, he holds his own against the Cat Police's true form, which had the power of over two-thousand galaxies in Rat Movie 2: The Movie.
  • Unexplained Recovery: He reappears in Rat Movie 2: The Movie, despite falling to his death in the previous installment.

  • Jerkass: Without any provokation, he states that, on his birthday, Kathy won't get any presents because she's an idiot, and tells his mom to shut up when she objects.

  • And I Must Scream: While the movie executive was mind-controlled, he was in a nightmare for two weeks straight. Not only that, he was also able to keep track of how long he was trapped in the nightmare.

  • Creator's Apathy: In-Universe, the movie executive admits he doesn't mind if the sequel of the Rat Movie is terrible, since "as long as we sell the merchandise and keep the suits happy, who cares about the subject matter?". However, this is the cat attached to him that's forcing him to say this.
  • Impersonation-Exclusive Character: During the Dog Capital scene, it's revealed he was being mind-controlled by a cat. After recovering, he's only able to say a single line before getting knocked out.
  • No Name Given: The movie executive's name is anonymous. The name of the cat attached to him is also anonymous.
  • Only in It for the Money: He's attempting to create a sequel to the first Rat Movie solely so he can sell the Rat Movie merchandise and keep the suits happy, and he doesn't care if the sequel ends up being a flop. Though, since he was mind-controlled at that point, it's unclear if he'd actually help create the sequel solely for the money.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Both the Giant Rat and his rat companions fail notice the cat attached to the movie executive's head.
  • Sequelitis: Conversed In-Universe. During the sequel pitch for the Rat Movie, he gives a lecture to the rats on how the quality of sequels don't matter, since they'll be able to sell the Rat Movie merchandise and keep the suits happy regardless. Or at least that's what the cat attached to him is forcing him to say, his actual stance on sequels is unknown.
  • Uncertain Doom: It's unclear if he was killed in the crossfire during the Dog Capital infiltration.
  • Undignified Death: Subverted. Initially, it appears he died when the Dog's robotic man crashed into him, but it turns out he was knocked unconscious.
  • Vocal Evolution: He speaks very quickly with a Texan accent when speaking with The Rats during the sequel pitch. Later, after being freed from the Puppeteer Parasite cat, he speaks in a slower, unaccented voice.

  • Made of Iron: He gets run over by cars, crashes while on a motorcycle, and crashes while driving a car while flipping people off, but he doesn't seem to die.
  • Nonindicative Name: He doesn't sneak, he's more of a dare devil who endangers his life by walking in traffic.

  • Boom, Headshot!: Happens to them often, due to how they stand still for long periods of time.

  • Growing Wings: Apparently, according to Jerma, they do this after getting their first kill.
  • Noob: What they actually are.
  • Oh, Crap!: Flocks of them, or "adult" spies, can be terrifying, provoking this reaction from Jerma.
  • Little Bit Beastly: They have no actual animal appearances, but they act as if they belong in a species instead of the human race.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Subverted, they look identical to French backstabbing smartass assassins. But their voice is beyond adorable.

Sims Murder House Residents

The numerous residents of the modded Sims 4 streams, where Jerma specifically modded the game to let it kill people in a wide variety of ways.

  • Bloody Hilarious: The entire point of the streams.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Garret, the closest to a normal person, serves as this for the entire group.
  • Jerkass: They're all sociopathic mass murderers who are almost exclusively rude to each other. Some are worse then others, though.

Sp00nerism

Ma3la

     Jerma Rumble Contestants

Gabe Newell (from Valve Software)

The creator of Team Fortress 2 and CEO of Valve, and is the only character other than Jerma to compete in every single Jerma Rumble fighting event.

  • Beard of Sorrow: Grows one for Jerma Rumble 3, where he looks a lot more mentally unhinged as a result of previous failures.
  • The Berserker: Becomes this in Jerma Rumble 3, giving a loud scream and quickly annihilating contestants left and right.
  • Berserk Button: Apparently, getting Half Life 3 announced. And hearing people trash-talk the End of the Line update for Team Fortress 2.
  • Crack Defeat: In Jerma Rumble 3, despite easily defeating the previous wrestlers, he's ultimately defeated by The Pencil, who's weaker and less experienced than Gabe. Though he would've defeated The Pencil had he not fell for The Pencil's Wounded Gazelle Gambit.
  • Determinator: He lasts a very, VERY long time in every Jerma Rumble he enters. He gets eliminated ultimately each time, but his fighting spirit has not gone unnoticed.
  • Dudley Do-Right Stops to Help: In the third Jerma Rumble, he falls for The Pencil's Wounded Gazelle Gambit and tries to help him get back on his feet, leading to The Pencil blindsiding and eliminating him. On the other hand, his actions caused The Pencil to reveal his true nature to the public.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: The poor guy can't seem to catch a break, except in his 1v2 match against Sonic and Pac-Man. He would've won Jerma Rumble 3, if The Pencil hadn't tricked him and cheated his way to victory.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: In the third Jerma Rumble, he attempts to help The Pencil get back on his feet after seemingly injuring him, and The Pencil rewards him with his sportsmanship by blindsiding him.

  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Gabe Newell from being triple-teamed by Sonic, Pac-Man and Gordon Freeman in Jermania 2014.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Against Gabe Newell. Sometimes it looks like they'll team up, with Gabe Newell as Spy's creator and boss. Spy will turn on Gabe pretty quickly, since in Jerma Rumble, there are no teams.

Batboy

A bat who is also a boy, and the first "shitty character" to enter The Jerma Rumbles.

An odd Mickey Mouse lookalike who's much more cranky.

The Pencil

A pencil-shaped wrestler that originated from "Your neighborhood classroom". He participated in the third Jerma Rumble as the fifteenth competitor, where he survived the rumble long enough until only him and Gabe Newell were left. When Gabe Newell overpowered him and gave what appeared to be a devastating blow to The Pencil, he fakes a leg injury so he could blindside Gabe and eliminate him, which he succeeded in doing so. While his actions were controversial, his fake injury was still technically legal, and he was crowned the winner of the third Jerma Rumble. For reasons unknown, he has yet to make a reappearance in the future Jerma Rumble events.

  • 0% Approval Rating: Absolutely no one was cheering for him when his Wounded Gazelle Gambit causes him to win the third Jerma Rumble.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: Averted. The Pencil isn't disqualified for blindsiding Gabe Newell, and wins the rumble without even a slap on the wrist.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When it becomes clear that Gabe Newell is too much for the pencil to handle, he resorts to pulling a Wounded Gazelle Gambit in order to blindside Gabe.
  • Dark Horse Victory: Absolutely no one expected The Pencil to win the third Jerma Rumble. Though the only reason he wins is because he uses a Wounded Gazelle Gambit, and would've lost had Gabe Newell saw through it.
  • Dirty Coward: Cheats Gabe Newell instead of fighting him properly.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": He's a humanoid pencil that goes by the name of The Pencil.
  • Gonk: He has a very long and deformed face.
  • Hate Sink: Disgracefully steals the competition from fan favorite Gabe Newell via manipulation.
  • Informed Ability: According to Jerma, The Pencil had sharpened his head prior to the third Jerma Rumble to the point where he could stab someone in the heart and instantly kill them. However, his head looks circular and dull, and he never attempts to stab anyone during the rumble.
  • Jerkass: Widely regarded as the meanest character in the Jermaverse, surpassing Demon Lord Xeraxos and Jerma himself. He knocks out fan-favorite Gabe Newell by feigning injury, causing universal hatred from Jerma and everyone else.
  • Joke Character: The announcer makes it clear that The Pencil was created purely as a cheap gag. He becomes a Lethal Joke Character when he wins the rumble, abet via trickery rather than strength or skill.
  • Jobber: Like many characters, The Pencil was created as just another gag character for the other wrestlers to beat. Unlike many characters, he subverts this trope and wins the rumble via trickery.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite how repulsive his moves were, it was still technically legal in the game, and he won as a result.
  • Noodle People: His body is very skinny, to the point where he's deformed due to how stretched out he is. This ends up working against him, as he's effortlessly overpowered by the more well-build Gabe Newell, and only a Wounded Gazelle Gambit stops him from losing.
  • One-Hit Kill: According to Jerma, The Pencil is capable of instantly killing an average person by using his head to stab them in the heart. Despite this, The Pencil never tries to stab anyone during the rumble.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He's always has a frown on his face, even when he's smugly celebrating his victory in the third Jerma Rumble.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: For reasons unknown, he has yet to make a reappearance in the future Jerma Rumble events, despite winning the third rumble. This is noticeable since Jerma and Captain Crunch won the first and second Jerma Rumble, and they both made at least one reappearance afterwards.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He celebrates his victory at the third Jerma Rumble as if he won by a landslide, while in reality all he did was blindside a wrestler that would've effortlessly defeated him in a fair fight.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: At the end of the third Jerma Rumble, Gabe Newell attempts to help The Pencil get back on his feet after seemingly injuring him, and The Pencil shows his gratitude by blindsiding him.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: In a non-verbal example, he smugly celebrates after winning the third Jerma Rumble, a victory that he didn't earn.
  • Use Your Head: Subverted. Jerma states that The Pencil is capable of instantly killing an average person by using his head to stab them in the heart, with the obvious implication that The Pencil would do so during the rumble. At no point in the rumble does The Pencil attempts this.
  • Walking Spoiler: A lot of the tropes involving him spoil his victory in the third Jerma Rumble, as well as the fact that he resorted to using a Wounded Gazelle Gambit in order to do steal victory from Gabe Newell.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Due to being a Noodle People, he stands no chance against wrestlers that are more well-build, and he uses dirty tatics to make up for this. This is demonstrated when, after Gabe Newell overpowered him, he uses a Wounded Gazelle Gambit to blindside him.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: At the end of the third Jerma Rumble, he fakes a leg injury so he could lure Gabe Newell into helping him up, then blindsides him.

In addition, Dr. Oetker seems to be this to them as a group, as he viciously attacks them, but they do not seem to share this view.
  • Berserk Button: The Goblin seems to be the Air Serpent's, as in the first rumble the Air Serpent never stops attacking him, and in the second, the mere sight of the goblin flings him into a rage.
  • Big Bad: Collectively, they seem to take this role for the first ever Stream Rumble.
    • The Bad Guy Wins: Fire Serpent secures their victory in the second rumble, while the first one crashed before he could even show up.
  • The Brute: Time Serpent, who takes on an incredible amount of damage and takes out multiple contenders in the second stream.
  • Evil vs. Evil / Enemy Civil War: In the second rumble, Sun Serpent and Moon Serpent go to war with each other, and Time Serpent later steps in and deals with the winner. In addition, the serpents all first appeared fighting each other, but this may have been some form of training.
  • Evil Genius / Manipulative Bastard: Possibly the Fire Serpent, if you believe that he manipulated Frogmin and the Mystery Fighter into ensuring his victory.
  • The Heavy: Air Serpent in the first rumble, Time Serpent in the second. Ultimately, Fire Serpent was the one to win.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Sun Serpent seems to have been this as he was in the source material, not appearing in the first Serpent Fight. Evidently, he was unsealed in time for the rumble.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: All of the serpents (sans Fire Serpent) came out in the same pairs in both rumbles: Sun Serpent and Moon Serpent, Time Serpent and Water Serpent, and Air Serpent and Earth Serpent. In the second rumble, Time Serpent and Water Serpent got the opportunity to shine in this role, working together to beat down the opposition and only ever attacking each other accidentally.
  • Willfully Weak: What many streamgoers seemed to believe was the case for the Time Serpent, possibly due to rumble rules. It matters little, anyway, as the Fire Serpent won.

Dr. Oetker

The inventor of baking powder and founder of an eponymous line of baking goods.

  • Arch-Enemy: Seems to really hate the Serpents.
  • Determinator: Lasts a long time in both Rumbles, rivaling Gabe Newell.
  • The Hero: Seems to take this role, defeating many villainous enemies, especially the Serpents, fighting even when badly hurt and tired, and beloved by stream and Jerma both, notably being the first contestant in Jerma Wrestling Federation history to ever eliminate two people at the same time. Unfortunately, he is defeated, letting the Serpents claim victory, possibly through subtle manipulations of Frogmin and the Mystery Fighter.

Widowmaker (from Overwatch)

Green Screen/BSOD

A seemingly unstoppable contestant that appeared halfway into the 2018 Rumble. He quickly proved himself to be nigh-unstoppable and the single most dangerous villain in the Jermaverse.

  • Big Bad: Takes this role for the 2018 Jerma Rumble, defeating the rest of the cast in the first rumble, and revealing universe-destroying capabilities in the second. It took the creation of Super JEX to finally stop him, but who knows how long until he returns...
  • Breakout Character: Originally just a filler and representative of the Green Screen Stream Jerma had done, he got to stay around and got several matches starring him because of how much ass he kicked and how he refused to stay down.
  • Chroma Key: The basis of the character, and apparently also what made it so powerful. Anything can be in that green space, and thus he can copy anyone's power at his leisure.
  • Darkest Hour: He flings the Jermaverse into one, where he conquers one timeline and destroys another, and threatens to do the same to a third unless the heroes can find some way to stop him.
  • Godzilla Threshold: His arrival and destruction of the second timeline make him this. It takes the resurrection of JEX as a superhuman being to finally defeat him, but even that may be temporary.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: His mere arrival in the second rumble of 2018 destroys the universe he's inMeta note .
  • Hero Killer: Slaughters many skilled contestants in his first arrival, ultimately winning the match atop a pile of the others' corpses. In the second rumble, he goes a step beyond and erases the timeline he's in from existence, effectively killing everyone in the Jermaverse, from Burgah Boy to Demon Lord Zeraxos. In the third timeline, he kills Jerma, Adam Sandler, and even JEX, though the last was revived as Super JEX.
  • Inexplicably Awesome/The Spook: Demon Lord Zeraxos is a lord of hell. JEX is a genetically engineered super cop. The Serpents are the creations of an archmage. The Green Screen dwarfs them all in sheer power, yet nobody knows who he is or where he came from, only that he is here to kill and destroy. He is speculated to be an embodiment of the end of worlds, but even that is a mere theory.
  • Kick Them While They're Down: One of his trademark moves, as he likes stomping on his lessers as he destroys them. He is also prone to taunting his enemies while they are helpless.
  • The Omnipotent: Speculated to be so powerful because hey can use Chroma Key to gain the abilities of anything that exists. When taking his BSOD form, he seems to embody the destruction of all reality via the power of a blue screen of death.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He desires nothing more than the end of everything.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Many contestants in the Jerma rumble were created to be powerful, like the Serpents, JEX and Zeraxos, among others. Green Screen was created as a joke, born from recent green-screening Jerma had actually done, and yet this joke proceeded to evolve into an unstoppable monster.
  • Power Copying: The power of Chroma Key is speculated to let him simply copy anything and anyone in power and skill, and he doesn't stop at simply one copied fighter at a time, letting him run roughshod over everyone.
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: The earliest rumbles had no villains at all, and if they did, the villain was usually dealt with rather quickly. The first ever stream rumble had the Serpents, but they only won through trickery and deceit, with their Big Bad, Fire Serpent only reigning victorious because he appeared last. Green Screen however ripped his way through a small dozen valiant warriors elected for the most prestigious tournament in the Jermaverse, and then later revealed he had the power of universal destruction. It took a godly, perfect being to defeat him, and even then, he came back for another round...
  • Super Mode: Has one in the form of BSOD, a blue version of him that embodies his sheer reality-destroying force. It was only activated once Super JEX defeated his original green form.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Of a sort. He was once a normal green screen, but being morphed into a humanoid form gave him limitless power that he soon abused.
  • Villainous BSoD: Well, in a literal manner of speaking...
