Yellow

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e170de3e848eb9eee6c7b95467f1639c.jpg

An yellow larvae who is an comically Too Dumb to Live if gross Butt-Monkey and is one of the main characters and titular duo


  • Butt-Monkey: Obviously sharing Red's punching bag status, but a lot less than Red.
  • The Chessmaster: Showing how he isn't as dumb as he seems and is, in one episode called "Genius Yellow", Yellow slips on a puddle, bumps into Red and accidentally swallows his bread, only for it to be later revealed that he specifically planned it that way
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He's had tons of remarks of himself being a total oddball, a total dingbat, usually the goofball while around Red or not, and Yellow himself can be quite eccentric, over-the-top and weird in his usual goofy behavior or blissful activities when in his everyday naivety, blissful ignorance or from anything weird happening in a episode, just enough to make him seem unpredictable at times.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Yellow has his heroic moments as one of the protagonists and can obligingly prove to be a Genius Ditz or can help out his friends, no matter how silly he usually is. He can also be this when trying to be tough and intimidating, enough to the point that he can look pretty crazy.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Ultimately loses Pink to Brown of all people and gets emotional because of this.
  • Dumb, but Diligent: When it either comes to Yellow pulling out moments of true brilliance in his Genius Ditz moments or is cooperative as well.
  • Dumb Is Good: Very Dumb, and very Nice. Enough said.
  • Fartillery: Uses his farts like a cannon (while he can use them like a rocket, heater, etc).
  • Fun Personified: What he likes doing by himself or with friends on a special occasion when discovering something or something else being the case.
  • The Fool: Can show moments where he is very lucky in some instances/situations/etc that don't come across the Idiot Houdini zone, in fact, this can most likely be subverted when a Butt-Monkey.
  • Genius Ditz: (See The Chessmaster above), Yellow has shown to be naturally talented and pretty skilled in some techniques that he also teach how to function some abilities to Red or his friends.
  • Idiot Houdini: Often in the early episodes, although Averted in later episodes.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Along with Red, he is quite durable and always lets Red slap him around and is still happy regardless, well most of the time.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Due to his aforementioned Dumb Is Good demeanor, he never has a deliberately mean or malicious bone towards anyone unless he was motivated to do so (e.g Red) or was just being mischievous, Yellow isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed; but he sure is incredibly kind, good-natured and was shown to be very sympathetic (usually loyal to Red on the Dumb, but Diligent side of things and in general), and is even gentle towards any kind of creature unless he was shown to be a lot more oblivious about potential problems in general or more oblivious with just problems in general at times.
  • Lethally Stupid: Yellow's clumsiness allows him to cause misfortune on others without intention and the episode "Troublemaker" shows his stronger side of this trope.
  • Meaningful Name: Along with many other characters such as Red, his name is based on his skin color.
  • Extreme Doormat: The least bad-tempered to the slapstick in inflicted on him and always is this to Red, except one time he tried getting revenge in Red's sleep when feeling pressured to..
  • Gass Hole: Can be this due to childish humor or out of habit. While his friends can be hypocritical since they can be gassy too, Yellow does this a lot more often than not.
  • The Klutz: Can be this sometimes due to his dimwitted, clumsy, oddball tendencies with his usual silliness making him prone to comical clumsiness, it can also result from having poor coordination with some environmental structures when running or other times like running on ice for example or is sometimes easily & unreasonably thwarted into being involved with slapstick pain when in his harmless activities by Red or is shown to have his klutzy moments whenever he has screen time.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Is ultimately this due to his ditzy and goofball characteristics.
  • Simpleton Voice: Although Yellow himself never talks per say, but you'd get the idea that he has an goofy, stupid voice because of the amusingly eccentric and silly sounds he usually makes when communicating or during his antics.
  • Toilet Humor: Is frequently the cause of this.
  • Who Would Be Stupid Enough?: Where some of his foolishness can result from.
