    Jesse Ridgway (McJuggerNuggets) 

Jesse Ridgway (aka McJuggerNuggets, Psycho Kid, or Baby Brudda)
"Hey, there, Juggies, it's your old pal McJuggerNuggets here!"
The long-suffering owner of the McJuggerNuggets channel. Jesse is a young man in his early twenties who wants nothing more than to play video games. Unfortunately for him, however, he lives with a father with a Hair-Trigger Temper who wants him to get a real job and often breaks his stuff.

  • Adult Fear: Has a genuine fear that the negative influence from Melissa would result in the death of his mother due to Drunk Driving, long-term health issues like liver disease, and/or injuries that will severely put his mother in harm's way under the influence of Alcohol. This is justified by his concerns about the amount of alcohol his mother and Melissa consume on a daily basis.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Starts the sequel series as one of these.
  • Anti-Hero: He is a Jerk with a Heart of Gold at his best moments, but he can be a bit selfish and focus more on himself than others. Likewise, he has several Pet the Dog moments to keep him from becoming the outright Villain Protagonist.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Stating that he would be like his father is Jesse's biggest pet-peeve as he does not wish to act like his father in the future.
    • A lot of Jesse's freakouts involve his dad taking away and destroying his games.
    • He loses it when someone blames Video Games for tragedy.
  • Break the Cutie/Haughty: Likely the premise of the Psycho Series.
    • It takes a much Darker and Edgier path after the divorce where his father state's that he's embarrassed to have him as a son and his mother getting corrupted by Melissa to take a level in jerkass to the point of being annoyed with the camera, siding with her best friend instead of him, and demanding that her son to leave her alone.
  • Butt-Monkey: Oh, dear God, he is this in the tragic sense. Considering that his father keeps breaking his stuff as the act for "disciplining" him and Jeffery Jr. likes to make his younger brother's life a living hell, it's hard not to feel sorry for him.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: To his mother. Justified in that he's seen his mother Taking a Level In Jerkass after moving into Melissa's house. Though it took Melissa to keep pushing his buttons enough times to unleash a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to both his mother and Melissa.
    Jesse: "What happened to the mom that I used to love? What happened? As soon you came to this house she started poisoning your mind!"
    • He also confronts his dad in "Psycho Kid Kills Father."
  • Catch Phrase: "Hey, there, Juggies, it's your old pal McJuggerNuggets here!"
  • Camera Fiend: Has a camera with him, much to his mother and father's dismay.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Can be this, whether or not he's angry.
  • Driven to Suicide: In the last episode, after he kills his father he attempts to hang himself due to his guilt. Subverted, as he can't bring himself to go through with it.
  • Flanderization: Jesse gets dumber and crazier as the series goes on.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It runs in the Ridgway family. He's actually been diagnosed as bipolar.
  • Heartbroken Badass: While the Badass part is questionable. There's telltale signs that he feels completely heartbroken after his mother called him while cleaning up Aunt Jackie's house demanding that he stays away from Melissa's and to leave her alone. The most gut wrenching of her decision was that Jesse feels that his own mother sided with Melissa instead of him.
  • The Hero: A rather dark and cynical one. The series focuses on him tries to make his life living by playing video games.
  • I Am Not My Father: Routinely states that he will not be like his father. Saying that he's going to be like his father is his biggest pet-peeve.
  • I Have No Son!: Inverted with his mother after calling her out. Though he genuinely misses the personality of mother before moving into Melissa's.
  • Jerkass: He can be one, though he claims that it's only when he's provoked first. Sometimes this is indeed the case, while other times do have him starting conflicts (or going overboard in his retaliation). The fandom seems to be split on whether they view him as having a heart of gold or not, though.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has his moments of kindness, such as having more loving respect for his mother, Uncle Larry, even Tom, who he's always at odds with. There's also his relationship with Juliette, who he loves dearly and even apologized for arguing with her after being stressed and angry at his father who ruined their date.
  • Jerk With A Heart Of Jerk: On the other hand, there are times that suggest that Jesse may indeed be a Manipulative Bastard like his father says he is. Many examples of this exist, but the most recent one would be when he threw Corn under the bus and claimed that he was solely responsible for the videos after his dad found out about them in "Psycho Dad Watches McJuggerNuggets." Corn did indeed film them, but only because Jesse told him to. After Corn calls him out on this, Jesse attempts to make himself the sole victim in the situation and asks Corn to just "take this one for the team."
  • Jock Dad, Nerd Son: The Nerd Son to his Jock Dad.
  • Like Father, Like Son: He starts to act extremely angry, destructive, and controlling like his father, which is one of the reasons Terry left in the first place.
  • Love Martyr: In a parent-child way. The dynamic between himself and his mother after moving in with Melissa's. Jesse loves his mother dearly and genuinely cares for her safety and well-being. While on the other side, Terry wants him to leave her alone, have no cameras around her presence and cutting off any kind of emotional support for Jesse and disregarding any quality time they had as being taken place a long time ago.
  • Manchild: Is in his early twenties and would much rather play video games all day than get a job. Though he does make money from his channel, as well as streaming (though he rarely ever actually streams).
  • Manipulative Bastard: His dad routinely calls him manipulative. The viewers were shown the more manipulative side in the lead up on Operation Pitfall.
  • Men Don't Cry: Averted. He cries a lot. Sometimes, it's understandable, but other times it's in ridiculous situations.
  • Never My Fault: A good chunk of the time Jesse says that he only witnesses the chaos that happens with him, his brother and his dad. While this is mostly true in the earlier Psycho videos, he clearly has been causing some of the problems that have happened in his life recently.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Though Jesse succeed in luring Jeffrey into a water-filled pit in "THE PITFALL PRANK!", in "Psycho Dad Busts Down Door", he is once again kicked out of the house and the whole family has turned against him, even his own mother. Instead of defending him like he usually does, she is on Jeffrey's side and even says "YOU LIED" to Jesse repeatedly.
    • It's likely he's done it again when he stalked and filmed Terry and Jeffrey Sr.'s meet up at the local mall. Judging by the coldness of Jesse's mother in TAKING OUT THE TRASH stating that Jesse shouldn't have been there, especially with the camera as it's not his business.
  • Out of Focus: Hasn't been appearing lately in the videos.
  • Perma-Stubble: Often neglects to shave, leading to this.
    • Around the time of the farm series, Jesse began actively growing a Badass Beard. Well, YMMV on the "badass" part...
  • Playing Sick: He's been accused of this as of late. During the North Carolina trip in the summer, he caught mono and as a result was limited in what he was able to do. As of September, he still occasionally plays the mono card long after he should have recovered from it.
    • It's largely theorized that Jesse is a Hypochondriac that he claims to still feel pain in his lower abdominal region yet MRI scans and doctor visits found nothing conclusive.
  • Precision F-Strike: Even though Jesse already swears a lot, it was pretty unexpected for him to call Aunt Melissa a "dumb cunt" in "BOILING POINT".
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He can become a psychopath like his father and act extremely childish at times.
  • Sanity Slippage: Q&A #29 seems to show Jesse starting to lose his marbles due to his father becoming more abusive and controlling. Subsequent vlogs show him basically going over the Despair Event Horizon and completely losing it. This went on until he snapped and committed patricide.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Jesse WAS ready to buy Buzz's house, but nope! Psycho Dad Subverts this when he steals the money for the down payment, ultimately forcing Jesse to stay with him. Psycho Dad's stated reason was royalties, but many theorize it's because of his control-freak tendencies.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: With Melissa.
    • Later on in the Farm Series, with his Uncle Chris. Though ends up getting physically assaulted.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He's got a rather colorful vocabulary.
  • Skewed Priorities: Oh where to begin with this kid.
  • The Dog Bites Back: "Psycho Kid Kills Father."
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Is shown to desperately seek his father's approval, and is jealous of Jeffrey Jr. for being the favored son in his eyes.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Reaction by many of his viewers in on his prank on BigBrudda's Car and his attitude to Larry in "THROWN OUT OF LARRY'S".
    • He got this TENFOLD over his treatment of his friends in Psycho Kid Submerges Motorcycle.

    Jeffrey Ridgway, Jr. (BigBrudda) 

Jeffrey Ridgway, Jr. (aka BigBrudda, or Psycho Brother)
"Hey there, little bruddas, Big Brudda Jeffrey here!"
Jesse's older brother, whom his father appears to favor greatly. Unlike Jesse, he has a "real" job (as an accountant) and regularly works out. He films most of the Psycho videos, a fact that he's not quick to let Jesse forget. In several videos, he's taken on a more antagonistic role, arguably replacing his father as the "main antagonist" of the videos, however, he has since Took a Level in Kindness.

  • The Ace: Arguably this compared to Jesse.
  • Badass Beard/Beard of Evil: Usually sports a full beard, though he shaves it every so often. He always has at least some Perma-Stubble.
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, DO NOT touch him or his stuff.
  • Big Bad: Arguably stepping into this role. Jeffrey's been a much more active antagonist to Jesse than his dad recently, with his dad being more of a tool for Jeffrey to prank Jesse and get him in trouble.
  • Big Brother Bully: Shows shades of this.
  • Big Brother Mentor: In later videos, especially after "PSYCHO KID MOVES OUT," Jeffrey has taken up this role.
  • Broken Ace: Also arguable, given his backstory, where it's revealed that he's put up with their father's destructive rampages and made to basically allow Jeffrey Sr. to live vicariously through him, and the only reason he's able to stay on Jeffrey Sr.'s good side is because he's had a lifetime to learn how to deal with him.
  • Catch Phrase: "Hey there, little bruddas, Big Brudda Jeffrey here!"
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's very sarcastic, especially towards Jesse.
  • Evil Laugh: Sports one each time he torments Jesse.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Doesn't come up as often as Jesse or his dad, but it's still pretty clear that anger issues run in the family.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Has lightened up in recent videos, though Jesse does not see it genuine and is still suspicious of his actions of getting back at him and/or pranking Jesse. Later averted when Jeffrey started giving Jesse good advice, before finally signing a peace treaty/alliance.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He's starting to show shades of this in recent videos...
  • The Hyena: Between him, Jesse and Jeffrey Sr. Jeffrey Jr is by far the merriest of the men, rather in a comical or cruel way he laughs or chuckles much to Jesse's disapproval.
  • Jerkass: Arguably more so than Jesse or Jeffrey, Sr. Unlike either of them, he never really gets any Jerk with a Heart of Gold moments until "PRISONER OF WAR - PSYCHO UPDATE".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: On the other hand, Jeffery has shown a little bit of this at times. A prime example is when he took two PS4's and an Xbox One from Jesse's room to keep for himself after Jesse and Uncle Larry destroyed his PS4, only to find out they were for fans as part of a giveaway. Not only did he instantly gave them back, but he also made a video apologizing to Jesse's fans. Not to mention later on he and Jesse are shown on somewhat good terms.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Arguably. He was present in the series from day one, but mainly acted as the cameraman in the earlier videos. The series tended to get Darker and Edgier around the same time he started taking a more active antagonistic role, with Jesse being kicked out of the house and left to fend for himself twice, and Mr. and Mrs. Ridgway getting a divorce.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Jeffery has his moments blackmailing Jesse by holding his possessions hostage.
  • Not So Different: Jeffrey ends up revealing in "PRISONER OF WAR - PSYCHO UPDATE" that he always wanted to do film and all the other times he was forced into sports or to even to accounting was because he had to put up with Jeffrey Sr.'s abusive nature. Like Jesse. Unlike Jesse however, and like Jeffrey states, he had to put up with Jeffrey Sr. more than he did. Which also makes sense as to why Jeffrey gives Jesse hell all the time.
  • Only Sane Man: After Taking A Level In Kindness, he pretty much has become this.
  • Parental Favoritism: On the receiving end, at least from his dad. He's allowed to stay in the house rent-free, has two rooms, and is hardly ever punished for anything. In the rare event that he is punished, it's guaranteed to be lighter than anything Jesse gets. However, his dad did smash his expensive camera when he found out that he smashed the trophies and framed Jesse for it.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Despite being more conventionally successful than Jesse, he's shown himself to be just as childish as him, if not more so. An example is how he flipped out on Uncle Larry for what he believed was a prank. This resulted in Larry banning him from the family vacation. How did he respond to this? By making a video in which he used many different tools and weapons to destroy Larry's "Larry's Lounge" sign (as well as Jesse's couch, because he believed Jesse was in on it too).
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: As revenge for Uncle Larry casting him in an embarrassing role for a skit on his channel (which he believes is a prank that Jesse is in on) and Uncle Larry banning him from their trip to North Carolina, Jeffrey enacts a "week of terror," a weeklong series of videos in which he destroys Jesse's collectible Halo 3 Master Chief helmet, and then prepares to destroy Uncle Larry's sign and a mystery item of Jesse's (later revealed to be his couch).
  • Signing-Off Catchphrase: "Big Brudda out!"
  • The Sociopath: Considering Jeffrey's shtick on harassing and making Jesse's life a hell, it's safe to say he is this.
    • This is somewhat lessened as the show has gone on though.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Jeffrey Jr. seemed to have gone through this after the events of "Psycho Brother Stomps Glasses". In "Psycho Kid Moves Out" and "CONTROL YOUR ANGER!", He tries to keep Jesse calm after Jeffrey Sr. stole the $30k from him. Sort of goes a long way after the events of the channel early on. Later videos seem to prove this, as well, as he genuinely seems to want to help his brother at times.

     Jeffrey Ridgway, Sr. (Psycho Dad) 

Jeffrey Ridgway, Sr. (aka Psycho Dad)
"Well if you want to game you gotta get a job while you do it too!"
The father of the Ridgway boys, and arguably the main reason for the channel's success. Mr. Ridgway is an old-fashioned man who just wants his son to be successful and stop doing what he sees as wasting his life. Due to difficulty controlling his anger, this often leads to him destroying Jesse's possessions. He has a bit of trouble understanding that Jesse can make money from playing video games and making videos, though he's become a bit more tolerating of it ever since Jesse showed him a video put together by his fans (though it's clear that he's still not exactly fond of Jesse's career choice).

  • Abusive Parents: At his worst, he borders on this. While he's never been shown to physically hurt Jesse, he causes him more than enough grief by breaking his things.
  • The Alcoholic: He drinks beer and has been drunk on occasions.
    • An example is in "Psycho Dad Scares Children" where he gets offended by the nickname "Psycho Dad" and creates a scene between a group of fans and their mother and the mother implies that he should stop drinking, but he defends himself by saying that he's an adult and he can decide if he wants to stop or not. Terry even implies that he drinks 7 or 8 beers.
    • In "Psycho Dad's Drunken Rant", he was seen with empty beer bottles and is in a pissy mood because of what his wife said to him and blames Jesse for it and angrily knocks all of beer bottles to the ground and throws the one he was drinking in the sink and angrily storms off.
  • Angrish: Averted. Unlike Angry Grandpa or Stephen Quire, Mr. Ridgway is calmer when he gets mad, though he's just as destructive.
  • Asshole Victim: Jesse has Jeffrey Sr. at gunpoint, and asks if he has any last words to say before he leaves forever. He apologizes, but not for all of the abuse he put Jesse through; he apologizes because he thinks introducing Jesse to video games made him into the person pointing the gun at him. Can you really feel sorry for him?
  • Berserk Button: Hates being disrespected. Notably, he sees the "Psycho Dad" moniker as disrespectful, and once buried Jesse's games in the yard when he found out that Jesse was selling Psycho Dad T-shirts. He later got mad at a couple of young fans who identified him as "Psycho Dad," but thankfully it didn't go beyond an argument with the kids' parents.
  • Big Bad: More so in the earlier videos, however as of late he has returned to being either this or Greater-Scope Villain.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: Recently installed security cameras in both of Jesse's rooms due to not trusting Jesse.
  • Demoted to Dragon: In some videos, he is mainly used by Jeffrey as a tool of sorts to cause Jesse grief. Later averted when Jeffrey underwent a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Determinator: Really wants to talk to his wife. Even to the point of actually following Jesse to Uncle Larry's house.
  • Dragon Ascendant: In later videos after being Demoted to Dragon.
  • The Dreaded: With little patience and an anger like a Bull, Jeffrey Sr is NOT a man to play around with especially when it comes to material possessions. In fact, everyone who knows him, dare not speak ill-will of him in his presence unless it's an argument they seek or their stuff demolished.
    • The trope gets even more justified whenever Jesse disobeys his father. Jesse himself would freak-out like he saw The Devil whenever Mr. Ridgway punishes him for his meddling.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: In "Psycho Dad's Drunken Rant", he is seen drinking bottles of beer after the talk with his wife and isn't happy about it either.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He kicked Jesse out of the house for destroying his trophies and pretty much left him to fend for himself, but he still wasn't happy to find out that Jeffrey, Jr. had framed Jesse for destroying the remaining trophies because "he was going through enough", going as far as to smash Jeffrey Jr.'s camera and let Jesse back in.
    • He flat out doesn't agree with Uncle Chris's methods, such as the idea of spanking/hitting his kids. LET THAT SINK IN.
      • This is quite zig-zagged, however. Though he doesn't want his brother physically attacking children, he had no problem back hoeing the Morton Building room, even though he knew Jesse was inside.
  • Gaining the Will to Kill: As of Psycho Dad Demolishes Gaming Room, his determination to make Jesse get a job has come to this after hearing that he left the McCann Farm since he doesn't care that he almost killed Jesse and Corn when he backhoed the walls. Many are now convinced he sees Jesse as nothing more than an embarrassment to the family name, and that he wants to kill Jesse to be rid of him and his Millennial ways; as a result, some viewers now believe that Jesse's only options are to either call the police or commit patricide, as there's absolutely no helping him at all.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: While Melissa and later Uncle Chris are the Big Bad in recent videos and his wife Terry taking up The Dragon mantle, Jeffrey Sr still trumps all of them as the Bigger Bad of the entire Psycho Series. Demonstrated in "AUNT MELISSA FIGHTS PSYCHO DAD", in which he effortlessly tosses her into a Christmas tree and forces a brief Enemy Mine between Melissa, Terry, and Jesse. He is also the reason Jesse has gone off to work with Uncle Chris. Jesse freaks out when Uncle Chris threatens to call him, and then actually does call him over to the farm in "LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON".
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It runs in the family. It doesn't take very much to set him off and cause him to start breaking stuff.
  • I Have No Son!: Likely towards Jesse after Psycho Dad Busts Down Door.
    • Seemly confirms it in "Psycho Dad's Drunken Rant" when he tells Jesse he's ashamed to have him for a son. Jesus.
  • Hypocrite: He continuously scolds Jesse for being disrespectful to him when he breaks his son's belongings and has no respect for him too.
    • He even lashes out at Jesse for pulling pranks on him when he himself pulled a chainsaw prank on Jesse in "Psycho Kid's Halloween Bloodbath".
    • Even Uncle Larry calls him out on this when he mocks him for drinking beer with Jesse as a way of nurturing when he drinks beer himself.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Seems to be his shtick when he's suspicious of Jesse lying. Though the only torture he does is verbal and psychological abuse by forcing Jesse to tell the truth and what Jeffrey Sr. want's to hear.
  • Jerkass: Constantly breaks his son's things for little reason.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Even though he doesn't approve what his son does and belittles him, he isn't wrong about getting a job and working for a living as it can make your life easier if you get a normal job and not sit in your room all day and play video games as it doesn't approve to anything in life.
    • He makes a good point when Jesse lies and manipulates people, as he constantly mooches off of people without giving anything in return.
    • He even makes valid points when Jesse goes to buy a house with $30,000, and he questions him about putting him online without his permission and using him for money. He also tells him that people are sneaky they could be connning him out of his money and he doesn't think things out and that he needs to be careful.
  • Jerk With A Heart Of Jerk: Although he does display something of an altruistic side at times, and even has a few Even Evil Has Standards moments, he ultimately subverts the Jerk with a Heart of Gold trope. In the earlier videos, his methods were excessive, but it was evident that he was ultimately well-meaning. However, as the series goes on, he gets more and more irredeemable (such as when he demolished Jesse's gaming room knowing that he and Corn were in there at the time, or when he forbade Jesse from filming anywhere except for a small closet).
  • Jock Dad, Nerd Son: The Jock Dad to Jesse's Nerd Son.
  • Kick the Dog: Destroys the Wii U that his wife bought for their son Jesse as a birthday present. His wife was so angry at him for this that she didn't stop Jesse from calling him a cunt and throwing the cake at him.
  • Killed Off for Real: "Psycho Kid Kills Father". In-Universe only.
  • Lack of Empathy: Shows little to no remorse over his actions, always justifying them with either the person "disrespected" him or because he feels he has to do so.
    • He doesn't care that Uncle Larry was badly injured when he crashed his truck into the pool and is now is in the hospital. In fact, he even says, "he shoulda died, doin' stupid shit like that."
  • Narcissist:
  • Never My Fault: Routinely blames Jesse of his emotional outbursts.
    • Particularly extreme example: In "Psycho Kid Kills Father", he seems as if he's finally going to apologize to Jesse for all of the abuse he put him through, but then says that he's only sorry because he introduced Jesse to video games and they turned him into who he is now. Jesse refuses to believe this, knowing in his heart that his dad is the real reason, and finally decides to kill him.
  • Nice Hat: And it's not because he's bald.
  • No Sense of Humor: Doesn't find any of Jesse's pranks funny though has gone to Disproportionate Retribution levels on "Psycho Dad Woodchips Wii U", partly over Jesse pulling a prank on his father saying he has a "job".
  • Not Good with Rejection: Mrs. Ridgway isn't open to the possibility of rekindling her marriage with him, so what does he do? Throw his ex-wife's things out the door and crushes her computer with a log splitter. Also counts as Disproportionate Retribution.
    • This part of his personality is again shown when he tries to win Mrs. Ridgway back by giving her flowers, but she rejects his approach, telling him, "IT'S OVER!", so he destroys her store
  • Power of Trust: Averted, oh so very much with Jesse. To the point of installing video cameras in his room and following him when he's out of the house.
    • Even went this way when all Jesse wanted to do was play games with him in "Psycho Dad Plays Video Games", but after getting into gamer rage, he flat out shoots Jesse's X-Box in "Psycho Dad Shoots X-Box" and flat out accuses Jesse of trying to humiliate him.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He can resort to this a lot, such as destroying possessions for little reasons.
    • He did not take it well when Terry divorced him and throws her possessions out of the house and destroys her computer and completely loses it and trashes the Juggies store when she said she and him were through.
    • He even shot Jesse's Xbox One when they were playing Halo and he died numerous times because Jesse "embarrassed him".
  • Sanity Slippage: After the divorce. To the point that, after Jesse quit his job, he seems to be resorting to flat-out trying to murder Jesse.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Not as much as Jesse or Jeffrey, Jr. but he's still pretty profane.
  • The Sociopath: He doesn't care when Terri or anybody tries to stop him from destroying stuff or just harming anybody, the man doesn't care. Also doesn't help he shows little to no remorse for it, even showing no remorse over nearly hurting Aunt Melissa.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: To Jesse. Considering that there's a huge trust issue between him and his son.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Has really taken one after the events of "Psycho Dad Busts Down Door".
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: More of Used to Be a Sweet Husband. Everyone has stated Jeffrey Sr. wasn't always angry or prone to spouts of anger. Something however happened that caused to be the Psycho Dad we know today.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Never seems to appreciate anything nice that Jesse does for him. For example; How does Jeffrey Sr. reacts when Jesse gifts him a new grill, complains about the number of burners and belittles Jesse about it.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Ultimately, Jeffrey Sr. just wants what's best for Jesse, but has a very twisted idea about it based on his Baby Boomer upbringing. The fact of the matter is that he just doesn't understand the Millennials and even makes it a point to force his outdated ways on his sons.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Shoved Aunt Melissa in a couch and again when he tossed her in her tree in a fit of rage.

Supporting characters

     Uncle Chris 

Chris Ridgway

The brother of Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. and uncle of Jesse and Jeffrey Jr. First introduced as a major appearance in the Psycho Series/Jesse's Vlogs in "MEET PSYCHO DAD'S BROTHER". Like Jeffrey Sr. does not hold any high opinions to Jesse's career choice in YouTube
  • Abusive Parents: More like an abusive relative. Even threatened Jesse that he'd strangle him for triggering his Hair-Trigger Temper if he wasn't his nephew.
  • Big Bad: Oh so very much, for the Farm series.
  • Bad Boss: Oh so much, even going as so far as physically assaulting Jesse by tossing dirt at Jesse and grabbing him, pinning him to a door post after getting caught filming. While Anita the farm owner is the top boss of the farm, Chris is the ultimate authority for Jesse.
  • The Brute: Much heavier and pudgier than his brother and is even willing to get physical with people.
  • The Dragon: Would be considered one, especially given that Jeffrey Sr. is still the series' Greater-Scope Villain.
  • The Dreaded: Even Jesse himself said that he and his Uncle Chris don't get along and was not looking forward to working for him.
  • Enemy Mine: While still antagonistic by nature, in "REAP WHAT YOU SOW," he learns a vague concept of what YouTube is and that Jesse gets paid for it. Even if his reasons are largely personal for it, you can tell that he WANTS Jesse to be telling the truth that he can make good money off videos and to be able to finally make his dad understand it.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In "NO CAMERAS ALLOWED" vlog, he's shown tossing dirt at Jesse and pinning him to a door post and threatened to strangle him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even though he was willing to strangle Jesse, he held back because he's his brother's son. Though how long till the trope becomes averted is yet to be scene.
    • He also steps right up to Jesse's defense after the destruction of the trailer.
  • Evil Counterpart: Arguably to Uncle Larry. While Larry is shown to be a Cool Uncle and supportive of Jesse, Chris is a Jerkass who has threatened Jesse and pinned him to a door post.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Apparently, it runs in the Ridgway family.
  • Heteronormative Crusader: Downplayed. His colorful vocabulary is quite homophobic. Even assuming that Corn, Jesse's friend, is his boyfriend.
  • Jerkass: Homophobic comments, belittling Jesse and his friend. It's hard not to see this man as anything other than a jerkass.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While his methods are a bit extreme, like his brother, he just wants Jesse to be successful and to grow up.
  • Lack of Empathy: Shows little to no remorse over his actions, much like his brother.
  • Nice Hat: Sports one in almost all of Jesse's vlogs.
  • The Nicknamer: Called Jesse's Friend "Cornhole" and a few other "colorful" languages, though rather justified as he has a homophobic personality and assumes Jesse and Corn are in a relationship. He has also taken to calling Jesse "Candy Ass", and sometimes "Yum Yum".
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's a jerk, but he at least acknowledges when Jesse does something right or shows improvement on the farm. He also seems to be somewhat more understanding of Jesse doing videos as a job, though he still doesn't see it as a job.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Has a much more colorful vocabulary compared to Jeffrey Sr. and Jesse. Including a spattering of homophobic slurs to the mix.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: with Jesse. Though dishes physical aggression at any snarks Jesse sends his way.
  • The Sociopath: Oh so much that it makes Jeffrey Sr. look like a saint in comparison.
  • Tsundere: Turns out to be a rather decent guy by the end of "HELL TO PAY!". By sparing Jesse the full amount of money to pay for Warrior's damaged truck. Such revelation has even brought Jesse to tears even if Uncle Chris denied his own mercy.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Chris's default behavior is that no matter how much Jesse does, he's still unimpressed despite Anita's positive reviews.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Even threatened to strangle Jesse.
    • Taken up to eleven when he threatened Jesse's life if Jesse told Anita about the "conversation" between him and Jesse.



The Benevolent Boss of the farm Jesse now works at who, naturally, disapproves of Chris and Jeff Sr.'s actions towards Jesse.
  • Benevolent Boss: A polar opposite to Chris.
  • Big Good: Has more than fulfilled this role since Jesse started working at the farm. Best demonstrated in "LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON".
  • Cool Old Lady: Is quite up to speed to online mediums like Twitter and YouTube.
  • Parental Substitute: Jesse even comments that Anita reminds him of his own mother. See "LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON".
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Very much so.


Theresa "Terry" Abraham-Ridgway

The wife of Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. and the mother of Jesse and Jeffrey Jr. Up until "Psycho Mom Divorced Husband", she was the only member of the Ridgway family to have never become a "Psycho" character, and she does her best to help defend Jesse from his father and brother.
  • The Atoner: Likely shaping up to be this after "A SLAP IN THE FACE!".
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, DO NOT HIT JESSE!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In "Psycho Mom Divorces Husband" when she declares "I'm doing what I should have done a long time ago!" to Jeffrey Ridgway Sr.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: What many commentators theorized what Aunt Mellissa has done and what both Uncle Larry and Jesse were concerned about when Terry moved to Aunt Melissa's.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: Oh so much after moving into Melissa's.
  • The Dragon: Gained the mantle after her Face–Heel Turn, Thanks to Melissa.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Inverted. Terry started out as a kind and loving mother. Sometime after moving into "Aunt" Melissa's and TAKING OUT THE TRASH! she's become more cold towards Jesse and becomes annoyed with Jesse's filming.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Oh so very much after her Face–Heel Turn
  • Drunk Driver: It's surprising that she has yet to be pulled over by a police officer or a New Jersey State Trooper for driving under the influence.
    • Even more fortunate that she hasn't found herself in an automobile accident while driving under the influence.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Downplayed since she's not technically "evil"; though she has gone through a complete personality change from being influenced by Melissa. Despite not being the warm-hearted, sweet mother that she used to be, she draws the line at physically attacking her children, as shown in A SLAP IN THE FACE, when Melissa slaps Jesse across the face for calling her a cunt. She is scolded by Terri for this, showing that she still has standards.
  • Evil Matriarch: A Downplayed example after Aunt Melissa's influence. While she is not as obtrusive and destructive as Jeffrey Sr., she has shown traits of being self-centered and a Jerkass. Has shown herself to be completely unreasonable, very much uncharacteristic of her early appearances in the vlogs.
  • Face–Heel Turn: With Aunt Melissa's influence, she turned on Jesse even to the point of saying she want's the camera out and Jesse to stop filming. Even rudely said to Jesse "Get the fucking camera out" and "were done".
  • Good Parents: In contrast to Jeffrey Sr., she was very supportive of Jesse and even provided emotional support for Jesse during Jeffrey Sr's outbursts.
    • Unfortunately gets subverted later on after Terry moves into Aunt Mellissa's house and started to become a Jerkass towards Jesse under Mellissa's influence.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Reconciles with Jesse in "SAVE YOURSELF!"
  • Hypocrite: Complains about not being listened to by her own husband, yet won't even want to spare time to listen and talk with her own son and instead would rather have fun with "Aunt" Melissa.
    • Want's Jesse to respect her yet at the same time is completely unreasonable towards Jesse, even disrespecting him.
    • Flat out tells Jesse to deal with Jeffery Sr.'s episodes, even though she separated from Jeffery Sr. because she couldn't deal with his episodes.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Since she left her husband,
  • It's All About Me: Starting to show shades of this, under Mellissa's influence. She doesn't even support Jesse and what he's going through and how it's affecting him. Even outright telling Jesse that he can deal with it, completely disregarding Jesse's own feelings after what he has gone through with Jeffrey Sr. and his emotional outburst. Instead, she would rather have fun than provide emotional support or even caring about the family that is affected by the divorce.
  • Lady Drunk: Thanks in part of Mellissa's influence.
  • Lack of Empathy: Won't even give Jesse a time of day to be genuinely concerned about Jesse's feelings, let alone talk with him after Jeffrey Sr. gave her son a Reason You Suck Speech on New Year's Eve. Insist coldly, that he deals with his father on his own.
    • Even more heartbreaking is she considers the quality of time that she spent with her son prior to moving into Melissa's a very long time ago, despite it was at least a month ago that they had a decent positive quality time togeather.
  • Only Sane Woman Commentators frequently point this out, as she has never been shown to destroy anything.
    • Though, with Mellissa's influence, has lost that streak when she started to become a Jerkass towards Jesse.
    • Becomes completely averted and tossed that reputation into the trash when her Jerkass personality causes even her own brother and sister to become concerned with her change of personality.
  • Precision F-Strike:
    Theresa: Yeah! Get the fucking camera out! Okay, we're done!
  • Put on a Bus: After having a large amount of November through February be her day in the limelight, she hasn't been seen since mid-February, a lifetime in the context of the vlogs.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here! In "Psycho Mom Divorces Husband", she gets in the car and drives off after Jeffrey Sr.'s latest freak-out sees him destroying the room Jesse worked on and busting out a window on his car; she tells him she wants a divorce.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": While her full name is Theresa, her nickname has different spelling variations, such as: "Terry", "Terra", or "Terri".
  • Thicker Than Water: Largely subverted after she moved into Melissa's and would rather side with her friend than stick up for her own son.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Mother: Prior to moving into Melissa's she was a kind and sweet mother, even supporting Jesse. Now, she has completely changed where she becomes more unreasonable and a Jerkass
    • Also doubles as "Used to Be a Sweet Sister" for both Aunt Jackie and Uncle Larry as they noticed drastic changes to her personality and became very concerned about it. Even to the point where all three; Uncle Larry, Aunt Jackie, and Jesse feel that it's best for Terry to get away from the toxic influence of Melissa.
  • The Woobie Many viewers feel sorry for her because she is the Only Sane Woman in her chaotic family.
    • Though presently, sometime during the New Year week, became the Jerkass Woobie. Becoming more unreasonable and distant to even her own flesh and blood, Jesse.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Oh where to begin with this woman...
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Though, after the events of "A SLAP IN THE FACE!", she has more or less lost her Jerkass qualities.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Reaction by many of Jesse's viewers when she Took a Level in Jerkass and started becoming unreasonable and a Jerkass towards Jesse. Many see it as very uncharacteristic of her to do that since she's normally a kind and sweet mother prior to moving in with Melissa.
    • Double time when she flat out tells Jesse that he can deal with Jeffrey Sr's episodes. Knowing full well that Jeffrey Sr's psychotic episodes have a negative impact on Jesse's psyche and emotional well-being, and that his episodes are the reason they separated in the first place. Essentially, cutting Jesse off from any kind of parental emotional support.
    • Even more so that she's started to become more distant, cold, and unreasonable to even her own siblings.
    • Drinking Under the Influence of Alcohol, even backed into the trash cans at Melissa's and was even uncooperative and unreasonable with Jesse when her own son told her not to drink and drive. Even chastised her own son for being controlling like his father. When in actuality, Jesse had justified reasons not to let his mother and Melissa drive while under the influence of alcohol.
    • Taking her best friend side over her own flesh and blood. Despite her best friend constantly putting her own son down, in front of her own eyes. Even flat out demanding that she be left alone, again.
  • Woman Child: acts like a rebellious teenager while under the influence of Melissa and her alcohol. Even Jesse admits that it's starting to feel like looking after a college-aged little sister.
    • Uncle Larry also confirms that she is also acting like a teenager and that Melissa's influence has Gone Horribly Wrong.

     Uncle Larry 

Lorenz "Larry" Abraham
"Hey everybody, welcome to the lounge, all my fellow loungers, chillers, ballers, and grillers!"
Jesse and Jeffrey's Cool Uncle, and Theresa Ridgway's brother. He was Psycho Dad's best friend before the family turmoil started to wear away at their friendship.
  • Bald of Awesome: Though largely covered up with a Nice Hat from his collection.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: When pushed to the limits, such as when Jeffrey Sr. destroyed his RV. Even Terry at one time said that it takes a lot to upset and anger Uncle Larry.
    • It really showed after the RV was destroyed, as he got into a shouting match with Jeff, dared him to punch him, and, for a grand finale, tried to run him over with his truck, only to injure himself and demolish the Ridgways' pool in the process, as well as get his truck totaled by Jeff in retaliation.
  • Cool Uncle: He's loved greatly by his nephews.
  • Gaining the Will to Kill: In "WHAT I COULDN'T DO...", Larry reveals that he was indeed trying to kill Jeffrey Sr., if only to free Jesse from his control. He goes as far as to state Jeff deserves to die for everything he's done.
  • Never Bareheaded: Always seen sporting a Nice Hat in videos. Justified due to hair loss and preventing sunburns on the top of his head during summer months.
  • Nice Guy: The most mellow and caring member of the family.
  • Nice Hat: Has a variety of hats and headwear in each of his appearances and in his own vlogs.
  • Only Sane Man: He and his sister Theresa are considered this. Uncle Larry is by far, the calmest and most collected main character in the "Psycho Series", and he is usually shown to be able to control himself even when he's angry.
    • After Terri fell off the bandwagon, it's safe to say that Larry's the only same individual compared to Jesse, Jeffrey Jr., Jeffrey Sr., Terri, and Melissa.
    • He finally lost it when Jeffrey Sr. destroyed his RV and basically began controlling every aspect of Jesse's life, to the point that he used his truck to conduct a kamikaze attack on the Ridgways' pool. An investigation by users shows that Larry was aiming for Jeff and trying to run him down, as if murder is the only option.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: After learning that Jeffrey Sr. has destroyed his RV, he loses it and goes to town on some of his belongings, such as his grill and a clock. He then stormed off and requested that Jesse not follow. Many viewers believed he was going to either the Ridgway Residence to beat up Jeffrey Sr., or the Stahlberger Residence to beat up Melissa. Later, he destroys the family pool by driving into it. The video's info even says that he wants to 'end it all'.
  • Parental Substitute: He takes care of Jesse and allows him to stay at his house twice, and Jesse even sees him as a father figure. Unfortunately, the second time, Jesse's dishonest behavior causes Uncle Larry to ask that he leaves to find another place to stay.
  • Perma-Stubble: Sports a goatee.
  • Snark-to-Snark Combat: With "Aunt" Melissa Sherman-Stahlberger.
  • Token Good Teammate: He's the only member of his family that isn't psychotic or a massive hypocrite.

     "Aunt" Melissa 

Melissa Sherman-Stahlberger

The friend of Terry Ridgway. Despite not being related, is addressed by Jeffrey Jr. and Jesse as Aunt Melissa. She was briefly seen in a previous psycho video "Psycho Kid Ruins Thanksgiving". After Terry separated Jeffrey Sr, she's become much more prominent in recent videos.However, she has recently been sidelined in favor of Uncle Chris.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: How Jeffrey Jr. sees her when she comes on strong towards him.
  • Abusive Parents: Given how she slapped Jesse, it's likely she's abusive to her own children.
  • Big Bad: While not as destructive as Jeffrey Sr. She has her moments that borders on disrespect towards Jesse and Uncle Larry. Even to the point of comparing Jesse with Jeffrey Sr and not even allowing Larry to visit and see his own sister. THEN she corrupted Terry into a clone of her.
    • Zigged-Zagged in Jesse's vlog "NOT MUCH DIFFERENT! where she opens up to Jesse after Uncle George's negative reaction with Psycho Dad's destruction and siding with him. The big badness is part of a Hidden Heart of Gold-hiding facade. After the heart-to-heart talk had a case of an Ignored Epiphany and reverted back to her old Jerkass self.
    • During Jesse's third exile, she's pretty much taken up the "Psycho" mantel and willing to go at lengths to destroy other people's property. One notable example is when she found out Jesse is living on her property, she immediately taken to Jeffrey Sr.'s level of destruction and destroyed both the mirror in Uncle Larry's RV, dented the microwave, and destroyed Jesse's TV.
  • Brutal Honesty: Oh so very much.
  • The Corrupter: Oh so very much. So much that she turned Jesse's own mother against him.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She appeared in a few of Jesse's vlogs. Most noticeably a reaction video of "Two Girls, One Cup" and would come across as an Early Installment Weirdness for people who've subscribed to Jesse's channel prior to her appearance in the Psycho Series where she's a Jerkass.
  • Enemy Mine: Despite being thrown into the Christmas Tree in "AUNT MELISSA FIGHTS PSYCHO DAD!", she actually contacted Jeffrey Sr. and revealed Jesse's location to forcefully remove him from her property.
  • Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: Her trademark gesture when she's angry. Even giving someone the Finger Poke of Doom to the chest.
    • In "AUNT MELISSA FIGHTS PSYCHO DAD" she found out the consequence of poking people in the chest, especially to the likes of Jeffrey Sr.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Initially, was taking a Heel–Face Turn after confronting Jeffrey Sr. However, subsequent vlogs show her back to her old disrespectful ways stating that she had a moment of weakness.

    • Even her own son, Georgie, has expressed genuine concern of her alcohol abuse and behavior while under the influence.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: She's no slouch herself. Even to the point where "Motherfucker" is pretty much her Catch Phrase
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Outside the Psycho Series, she's a decent person.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Despite being called an aunt, she's not related to neater the Abraham Family nor the Ridgeway Family. The title was applied since she's a close friend to Terry.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Crosses it in "Psycho Dad Rips Apart RV", in which she tipped off Jeffrey Sr. to Jesse's location. In the Psycho Update, she tells Jesse he should never have fucked with her with a smug look.
  • Mrs. Robinson: Seems to be a bit "friendly" with Jeffrey Jr. Which makes him a bit, uncomfortable. Even Jesse admits that she's a cougar.
  • Not Good with Rejection: When Uncle Larry broke up with her while they were still in high school. While Uncle Larry moved on, Melissa held a grudge against Larry for years.
    • She didn't take all that well to Terry breaking off her friendship with her. Though unfortunately, takes her frustrations out on Jesse because she see's him as the primary reason why Terry broke off her friendship with her,
  • Not So Different:
    • To Jeffrey Sr.; temper-wise when she smashed "Uncle" George's wine bottle, blaming Jesse for making her angry, and showing favoritism towards Jeffrey Jr as well as to her own son. As well as assuming that Jesse is the manipulator.

    • Later, Jesse engages some snarky comebacks against Melissa
  • Straw Feminist: Becomes one after consuming enough alcohol.
  • The Corrupter: In "THE DIVORCE PAPERS!", we see the far-reaching consequences of Melissa's influence on Terry. In a nutshell: Terry has become a Melissa clone, with a wild haircut and Straw Feminist tendencies (to the point a few viewers likened her to a Tumblr feminist).
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Jesse and Uncle Larry don't enjoy her company, even in Jeffrey Jr's vlog he was not too keen of Aunt Melissa. Terri is the only one that sees her as a good friend.
  • Tsundere: Jesse says that she has her kind moments, while on video she sways between being kind to being downright mean.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: What Uncle Larry and Jesse see Melissa. Justified in that subsequent vlogs sometime around New Years that their fears came true when Melissa manipulated and influenced Terry.
    • Even Jeffrey Jr. shows his own concerns in his own vlog.
    • It's perhaps likely a reason why Jeffrey Sr. does not want his wife to hang around her too much while they were still living together.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Despite Jesse defending her in "AUNT MELISSA FIGHTS PSYCHO DAD!" She's still show's her ungratefulness towards Jesse.
    • Even pulling an Enemy Mime somewhere between "NAIL IN THE COFFIN!" and "Psycho Dad Rips Apart Trailer" where she actually contacted Jeffrey Sr, the very same person who threw her into the Christmas tree months prior.
  • You Remind Me of Psycho Dad: To Jesse, much to his annoyance.
    • Also crosses into Hypocrite territory when in the latest of Jesse's vlogs, she's shown herself to display the same tenancies as Jeffrey Sr. ranging from delivering "The Reason You Suck" Speech at Jesse to even willing to destroy Jesse's property.
  • Wicked Stepmother: Though more like, Wicked Family Friend, has displayed traits of this. Especially towards Jesse by way of being a Jerkass towards him and influencing his own mother to go against him.
  • Woman Scorned: Uncle Larry once dated Melissa during high school. While Larry broke up with Melissa, the latter did not take it so well and still holds the grudge to this day.
  • Would Hit a Guy: Slapped Jesse while he was trying to stand up for himself and threatened to call her a "cunt" all while trying to relay the news of his father's health to his mother. Given that Melissa is Jesse's elder, it crosses over into Would Hurt a Child territory.


Zachary "Corn" Cornatzer

A friend of Jesse. Been together since the two were in school. In recent videos is the designated camera man.
  • Best Friend: One of Jesse's circle of best friends that he has.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: After being harassed and antagonized by Uncle Chris for "not doing anything" with his degree in Criminal Justice, Corn flat out snaps and tells him off.
  • Catch Phrase: Is prone to saying "I know, right?" a lot.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Doesn't come up much, but he's been shown to snark back at people who antagonize him, such as Uncle Chris.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Rather justified in recent videos as he's holding the camera for most of Jesse's vlogs. On occasions, he is visibly seen.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: While his default alignment is the face. There are times where he betrayed Jesse three times, the latter two was Only in It for the Money on helping Jeffrey Jr. on pranking/getting back at Jesse with the former being involved with Jeffrey Sr's Halloween prank on Jesse.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Both friends and Jesse's family refer to him as "Corn". Based on the part of his surname: Cornatzer.
  • The Lancer: Has taken up this role in the second run of the Survival Series after Jesse ran away from his father.
  • The Quiet One: He doesn't say much. Most you'll get out of him is "yep" or "yeah". Though he has at some point spoken full sentences. So his vocabulary is not that limited.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
    • Uncle Chris antagonizing him and tossing manure at him pushes him to his limit, causing him to get mad and quit filming for Jesse.
    • An earlier example: around "Psycho Dad Crashes WoW LAN Party", the two had fallen out for a couple of months.
    • Looked to be doing this again after Jesse threw him under the bus and blamed him for everything after Psycho Dad found out about the videos. This time, however, it was subverted. Corn forgave Jesse by the very next day.
    • In Jesse's "Eviction Day"/Jeff's "Psycho Dad Throws Me Out (ft. Mc Juggernuggets & Kidbehindacamera) video, he drives up to the Ridgway household late at night after Jeff Sr. had already told off a bunch of kids for trespassing on his property due to Jesse and Jeff's shenanigans because he thought Jesse told him he wanted him to film for something. Jeff Sr. proceeds to get on his case too before he promptly leaves.
    • Did this in Real Life near the very end of the Psycho Series, apparently due to Jesse not paying him enough and making him feel like he was unappreciated for his work.



An object created by Jesse Ridgway during the time he was living in Uncle Larry's RV after running away from home. Demma was the result of Damien and Emma the Styrofoam Head being merged together

  • Companion Cube: In a nutshell.

How well does it match the trope?
