Characters / Jerma985

Go To

Jerma985, despite being primarily being a voice commentary channel by one man, is developing a wide cast of characters, primarily through Jerma Rumbles. For a more comprehensive look at the cast of the Jermaverse, the Jerma Wiki is here.

    open/close all folders 

     Jerma/ Jeremy 
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, and continues to do, Team Fortress 2 commentaries (favourite classes are the Engineer and the Spy), but has since made strange, hilariously bad Indie Steam games his primary channel focus.

  • Adorkable
  • 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_.
  • Announcer Chatter: In Jerma Rumble.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Occasionally with Live Commentaries.
  • 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 Jermaina, 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 claims to be 5'8 (Although he's probably actually 5'4.)
  • Hidden Depths: He's silly and funny, but is also a professional voice actor, and demonstrates amazing talent every once in a while.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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_.
  • 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.
  • 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, 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, growing increasingly cruel and pathetic while staying as friendly as ever.
  • 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

  • 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.

  • Canine Companion
  • Gasshole: Jerma has uploaded a video where he blames Otto's farting for his inability to play Smite.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.


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.

  • Affably Evil: He is very polite.
  • Badass Cape: Wears one that's clearly actually a towel.
  • Badass Long Robe: Trades his cape out for a full-body robe in the Live Action Rumble... and boxing gloves.
  • Berserk Button: Merely seeing the Slim Jim Guy set him off.
    • The Live Action Rumble has him nearly destroy the entire event over not being invited to it.
  • Demon Lords and Archdevils: Looks exactly like modern depictions of Satan, and apparently rules over multiple Hells. He even steals Jerma's soul temporarily.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: His sheer power forces Mr Sneakman to take him out, because nobody else was strong enough.
  • The Dreaded: For good reason. After going on a rampage and murdering several fighters, Jerma contemplates calling the army to stop him.
  • Evil Overlord
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • For the Evulz: His reason for taking over Jerma's show.
  • Game-Breaker: He himself points out that his extreme power levels makes things unfair for the other fighters. He's right. He almost ruins the entire Jerma Rumble.
  • God of Evil
  • Hero Killer: Murders several big-name characters in Jerma Rumble 3, including MLG Grandpa, Sonic the Hedgehog, Candyman, The Slim Jim Guy, and Count Chocula.
  • Hostile Show Take Over: To play Five Nights at Freddy's.
  • Jerkass: When he gets frustrated and angry, he stops being formal and polite.
  • Laughably Evil
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: After seeing The Slim Jim Guy in the Jerma Rumble, Not that he wasn't already a massive threat.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: "The Lord of All Hells and Demons and Hatred", occasionally just "Lord of all Hells."
  • Offing the Annoyance: Kills The Slim Jim Guy and Jerma because they pissed him off
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: When he starts casting a powerful spell and gets interrupted during the spell in Live Action Rumble.
  • Really 700 Years Old: It's not surprising he's been alive for so long, being a Demon Lord. He's apparently had a feud with the Slim Jim Guy for 2000 years.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With the Slim Jim Guy.
  • Story-Breaker Power: His sheer power level, combined with his ability to instantly kill any other fighter makes even himself bored in the Jerma Rumble.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: He's not scared at Five Nights at Freddy's. YOU were scared. He wasn't. Totally not scared.
  • Un Stoppable Rage: Seeing the Slim Jim Guy provokes him to go on a killing spree, killing characters who had nothing to do with anything.
  • Victory Is Boring: After killing Grandpa and Sonic the Hedgehog without any effort, he eliminates himself from the fight because he was bored.

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.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Richard himself, but his purple cohort makes him look normal.
  • The Dreaded: In Jerma Rumble, Jerma is terrified of him.

  • Jerkass
  • Killed Off for Real: Richards returns for the Jerma Rumble and the Rat Movie's sequel despite getting killed, but his purple accomplice does not.
  • Mixed Metaphor: "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.
  • Only Sane Man: The thief played by Boo is the only one who seems to have any sense. It saves his life when he decides to flee instead of facing the rats.
  • Pet the Dog: His evil nature is emphasised 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.
  • Unexplained Recovery: From his fate in The Rat Movie.

Giant Rat and other rats

They prey at night, they stalk at night. They're the rats from The Rat Movie. The Giant Rat makes all the rules, and has also appeared in Jerma Rumble 3 and the Live Action Rumble.

  • Blatant Lies: "Hello sir, welcome to the Rat Café. There's no rats here. Just, uh, hamburgers".
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: They effortlessly take out Garroth the Guardian of the Mayan temple, and while they have a bit more trouble killing the thieves, it's still a quick fight.

  • 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 that makes all of the rules.
  • 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.
  • Leitmotif: Their Rat theme.
  • Oh, Crap!: When the Cat Police shows up.
  • Pokémon Speak: "Rats, rats, rats, rats, rats". Possibly part of their Leitmotif.
  • Rat King: The Giant Rat

  • Why Did It Have To Be Cat Police?: When the Cat Police shows up, they are very distressed.

Mr. Sneakman

A Superhero character who made he debut in Grand Theft Auto 5 Online videos, he teaches the audience how to be sneaky, although what he does isn't very sneaky, and usually amounts to walking in traffic.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: To stop Demon Lord Zeraxos from destroying the entire Jerma Rumble, he grabs him and drags him off the arena, eliminating them both from the competition. Zeraxos had already eliminated himself, but Mr. Sneakman did manage to hurt Zeraxos' leg badly enough so he couldn't come back.
  • 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.
  • Signature Laugh: He has a gleeful chuckle.
  • Simpleton Voice
  • Taking You with Me: When his fight with Zeraxos isn't looking good, he throws both himself and Zeraxos out of the ring at once, disqualifying both of them.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: He himself admits he's not very sneaky.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Strangely wears very feminine high heels as part of his costume, but nothing other than that.

Baby Shpees

Spies from Team Fortress 2, reimagined as a species who hatch from eggs. Baby Shpees are Spies before they learn how to backstab, disguise, go invisible, or do anything useful for their team. Actually noobs given a baby-voice by Jerma.

  • Animal Motifs: Of birds.
  • Baby Talk: How they communicate, and how Jerma talks to them.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Happens to them often, due to how they stand still for long periods of time.
  • Endangered Species: Because they get killed so easily, Jerma takes it on himself to protect them. With poor results every time. Apparently, over 700 shpees are born every second, but only 2 survive to adulthood.
  • 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.


A friend of MLG Grandpa's, who has appeared in Grandpa's Christmas Album and an MLG Grandpa instructional video for Modern Warfare 3.

The School Principal

A character Jerma invented, who is an angry school principal. He debuted in a Team Fortress 2 Demoman Tip video in 2012, appeared in Grandpa's Christmas Album later that year, before disappearing completely.

  • Took a Level in Badass: Is this for Jerma.

Bean Bag Sonic

  • Broken Pedestal: Suffers this after nearly dying due to JEREME sending him out on a mission, growing to despise him.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Starts out with rather mediocre stats, but quickly becomes an incredibly fighter.


An Otomatone that Jerma bought that was introduced when he streamed Celeste.

Sims Murder House Residents

  • 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.
  • Laughably Evil: The entire point of the stream is to have them murder each other and others in the most insane way possible.
  • Not So Above It All: Garret is basically a normal person, but still occasionally engages in mass murder.

  • Determinator: Despite primarily being included to advertise cereal characters after Captain Crunch's win, he currently holds the record of the all-time best performance in Jerma Rumble 3, and one of the best in the entire Jerma Rumble series, tallying in at 5 eliminations and clocking in at just under 10 minutes of ring time, even despite being interrupted by Demon Lord Zeraxos.

Flanker (from Sorcery!)

The Analander (from Sorcery!)

The hero of the Sorcery! series.

  • Big Good: The enemy of the serpents in the source material, and he and the Fire Serpent are the final contestants in the rumble. Due to his prior battle with Frogmin, however, he loses swiftly.

Orson Welles

A famous American actor, known best for his work in Citizen Kane by most, but many Jerma fans can recognize him from his exceptional work advertising Paul Masson champagne.

  • Memetic Mutation: "MUHAAAAAAH the French champagne has always been known for its excellence."

Paul Bearer

A real-world wrestler who Jerma fans recognize as his donation sound effect on Twitch.

Jerma Moon

A moon with arms and legs and Jerma's face printed on it.

  • Token Heroic Orc: Suggested by Jerma to be a serpent due to both being huge figures and having a moon theme.

The Serpents (Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Moon, Sun, and Time) (from Sorcery!)

The seven elemental Serpent enemies from Sorcery!

  • Arch-Enemy: Tooth Goblin for Air Serpent, Jerma Moon for Time Serpent in the second rumble, and the Analander for Fire Serpent in the second rumble. The serpents all defeat their enemies. 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.

Easy Pete (from Fallout: New Vegas)

A friendly old man from Fallout: New Vegas.


Jerma's character from Dark Souls III.

  • Face–Heel Turn: Several streamgoers screamed that he was a betrayer when he seemingly decided to help the Serpents in the second rumble, and Jerma even believes that it was his fault that the Fire Serpent won.

Archmage of Mampang (from Sorcery!)

The creator of the Seven Serpents from Sorcery!

  • Arch-Enemy: After their failed pre-rumble match, Lorag.

  • Captain Oblivious: Wears a VR headset, and thus is completely unaware that what's happening is real. Also appears to be wearing no pants.

Agent 47 (from Hitman)

The main character of the Hitman series.


A man of diminutive stature coated in slick slime. Described by Jerma as "A melted action figure."

  • Killed Off for Real: Dies before the main event in Jerma Rumble 2017 and has not been seen since.
  • The Grotesque: He's absolutely malformed, yet bizarrely endearing

Snattacat (from Sorcery!)

A feline enemy from Sorcery!

Tooth Goblin

A summoned goblin companion from Sorcery!

James Madison

A Founding Father and the 4th President of the United States.

Mystery Character

A random, evidently very powerful character created by one of Jerma's friends, his true identity, purpose, and name being a complete mystery.

  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Fire Serpent shortly deals with him after arriving in the arena, making it clear he is the true final villain.

Widowmaker (from Overwatch)

The dangerous sniper assassin of Talon.

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...


How well does it match the trope?
