Go To

In a show all about character creation in video games, there's gotta be some interesting characters with interesting tropes, no?

    open/close all folders 

     The hosts 

Griffin McElroy
Griffin Andrew McElroy is the younger of the two brothers. He's the one who's usually in control of the game, while Justin has input over a voice chat.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Justin sometimes refers to him as "Grif" or, more rarely, “Ditto.”
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Invokes it in "Recreating Ourselves in WWE 2K16", where he does his best to annoy Justin when "recreating" him in the game, and at times in other episodes where he purposefully gets whiny for comedic effect.
  • Contagious Laughter: When one of the brothers laugh, there's a very good chance the other will too.
  • Cruel Player-Character God: He is not a merciful god to his monster children. Sometimes even the characters know this, such as the Tanner family from Sims Sweeps Week when he traps them all in glass chambers.
"What do you think he wants? When will he let us out?"
  • Curse: Encountered a Wicked Witch outside of Arby's who gave him a hacked copy of Dark Souls I to play and put a curse on him that he'd die if they didn't play it on Monster Factory.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Reprimands Justin for perving on Dark Vader's butt when he himself regularly lays on the lasciviousness thick towards other monsters, like Daz and #NOID.
  • Mad Scientist: The one who directly creates the monsters.
  • Team Dad: The daddy of the Monster Factory, and doesn't like his kids fighting each other in Monster Mania.

Justin McElroy
Justin Tyler "Wrestling" McElroy is the older of the two brothers. He merely watches from afar as Griffin unleashes chaos, giving input over a voice chat. He is also responsible for rating each creation.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Griffin sometimes refers to him as "Juice."
  • Audience Surrogate: He isn't told ahead of time what Griffin is planning to do and his reactions tend to mirror the viewers' — usually laughter.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Justin begins the Final Fantasy episode by telling Griffin that he has a funny observation about the name of the franchise. Griffin supplies fake laughter right up until Justin's punchline.
    Justin: It's called "Final Fantasy," and yet, there are, like, thirty of them, and so my question is this: Why are, like, half of them bad games?
    Griffin: Oh. The joke didn't go where I thought it would go.
  • Broke the Rating Scale: Justin's job is to give each monster a Meaningless Value rating at the end of the episode, which have ranged from using horse dressage scores to Family Feud hosts.
  • Contagious Laughter: When one of the brothers laugh, there's a very good chance the other will too.
  • Team Mom: The Lady Gaga of the Monster Factory. In Monster Mania, he would prefer it if "the kids" just became friends and went to go play Xbox together.

Patrick Gill

Patrick Gill occasionally appears as a Guest Host, usually for help with wrestling purposes.
  • Bringing in the Expert: Pat returns for Monster Mania to help the McElroys commentate with his superior knowledge of wrestling.
  • Straight Man: Takes his job as a wrestling commentator slightly more seriously than the McElroy brothers.
    Griffin: Is this Shinsuke Nakamura's entrance?
    Pat: Uh, this is Toucan Dan's entrance.
  • Temporary Substitute: Pat subbed in for Justin while the latter was on paternity leave, hosting alongside Griffin for the last two episodes of the Arby McDonald trilogy.


     Dark Souls II (Squirtle) 

Rating: 8/10
A disturbing character modeled after the popular Pokémon, Squirtle. He traded his voice in exchange for being summoned into a human form by a witch, who did so in hopes that Squirtle could save the world from "the darkness that is here in the world of [...] our souls".

     The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (G.A.R.F.I.E.L.D.) 

Rating: -2/10
A "cyber-Garfield" who eats all lasagna JPEG images he can find on the internet, making them a rarity in Skyrim.

Dark Vader
Rating: 2/2 dads (shared with Daytrader Vader and Cousin Specialagent)
The biological father of Daytrader Vader.

  • Ambiguously Bi: Had a child with an unseen woman and tries to hook up with female Sims, but is very close to Cousin Specialagent and Justin suggests Griffin have Dark Vader start a relationship with a male Sim so they can add in yet another dad to the dynamic.
  • Child Hater: Was intended to be one but bizarrely is happy around kids and he spawns hugging his son.
  • Informed Flaw: Despite supposedly being a Child Hater, the very first thing he does is hug his son. Later on, he also becomes happy upon walking past another child.
  • Informed Poverty: Walks back home from the bar because he apparently can't afford the fare for an Uber, despite living in an extremely extravagant and luxurious mansion.
  • Potty Failure: Griffin makes him wet himself and then makes Cousin Specialagent clean up the mess.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hamburgers. He makes a big plate of them at one point, and Justin and Griffin completely ignore all of his other needs to finish them.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: Griffin denies him the ability to use the bathroom and causes him to piss his pants as a result for his own amusement.

Daytrader Vader

The oddly capable businessman child of Dark Vader.

Cousin Specialagent
Rating: 2/2 dads (shared with Dark Vader and Daytrader Vader)

  • Becoming the Mask: Griffin suggests he won't betray Dark Vader because he'll realize they need each other as two horrible monsters and become True Companions.
  • Covert Pervert: Is suggested to enjoy mopping up Dark Vader's piss.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dies, with Dark Vader attempting to bury his ashes at a gym. Griffin tried without success to bring him back in Sweeps Week.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Claims to be a cousin from Daytrader Vader's mom side of the family as part of his cover and infiltration into the Vader family. Dark doesn't keep in touch with her so he doesn't realize it's not true.
  • The Mole: An undercover agent trying to investigate Daytrader Vader's shady online deals.
  • Parental Substitute: Seen as Daytrader Vader's second dad.

Sweeps Week Cast

The main casts of several well-known sitcoms, including: Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Full House, Dharma & Greg, Everybody Loves Raymond, The O.C., Frasier, The Golden Girls, Family Guy, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Scrubs, Home Improvement, and Growing Pains. Also Boba Fett.

  • Back from the Dead: Greg Montgomery eventually and miraculously revives after being deleted.
  • Balancing Death's Books: When Griffin and Justin agree that The Tanners shouldn't be forced to pay the blood price in full by themselves, having already sacrificed Danny and Joey, Griffin switches over to Dharma and Greg and Greg is killed to "satisfy the dark hunger." The cast of Frasier promptly comes to Dharma's side and thanks her for her husband's life essence.
  • The Cameo: The Vader family lives in the same neighborhood as them, and have been seen on occasion in the series. Additionally, the casts of The Big Bang Theory and Friends are seen as having been placed in the neighborhood, but never appear during gameplay.
  • The "Fun" in "Funeral": Greg's funeral is more of a bonfire party.
  • Humanoid Abomination: When Griffin deletes Greg, the cast of Frasier immediately approaches Dharma, where the men introduce themselves as the "Greg-Eaters," before thanking her for satisfying their "dark hunger" and ominously chanting "THE DEBT MUST BE PAID."
  • Killed Off for Real: Steve Urkel becomes a vampire and soon dies from sunlight exposure. Later, Boba Fett is killed by Ray Romano while trying to collect a bounty on him, while Ryan Atwood burns to death in a botched attempt at insurance fraud.
  • Massively Multiplayer Crossover: Classic sitcom characters (and Boba Fett) all interact.
  • Men Are the Expendable Gender: When it comes time to pay the blood debt, Justin chooses to kill off Danny and Joey from Full House, and when Griffin moves to delete either Dharma or Greg, Justin chooses to kill off Greg because he believes that Dharma would be more of a positive force in the world than him.
  • Plant Person: Uncle Joey is a Plant Sim. Justin and Griffin also experiment with giving him and his family salads and "pissbushes" for heads.
  • Sadistic Choice: Griffin forces Justin to decide to kill off two members of the Full House family and later either Dharma or Greg to satisfy the dark hunger.
  • Somebody Doesn't Love Raymond: Boba Fett cultivates a hatred towards Ray Barone during the course of his mission to collect the bounty placed on his head by an unknown party, so much so that when he succumbs to the injuries he sustains during his fistfight with Raymond, his epitaph reads, "I Hated Raymond". Griffin insinuates that Raymond kills anyone who doesn't love him the way they're supposed to.

Todd Coolbody
The TV executive running the Sweeps Week operation.
  • Accidental Art: His magnificently deformed body was a completely spontaneous accident caused by the numerous mods installed in the game.

  • Plant Person: Griffin accidentally turns him into one, but just runs with it.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Repeatedly walks past a lost and distressed Stewie Griffin without helping him.
  • Workaholic: Todd is so preoccupied with his career that he keeps an exposed toilet in his workspace, facing the televisions so he can continue to monitor his programs. In fact, outside of his office in the basement, his house is completely bare except for a simple bed, and his only indulgence in life is collecting opulent fountains.

     Fallout 3 (D-Bomb) 

Rating: D-Bomb
A powerful and psychopathic vault survivor.
  • Above Good and Evil: She'll do harm unto whoever she wants whatever way she wants, and Justin says that his only problem with her is that she doesn't "seem to live by any sort of code".
  • Humanoid Abomination: As a child, she could clip through walls and kill people with her mind, and also was a noodle-limbed monstrosity a la Slenderman with a touch of giraffe.
  • It Amused Me: D-Bomb storms through Vault 101 and the Capital Wasteland laying waste to whatever and whomever she sees fit with her massive firepower and god-like powers, all for seemingly no reason except whimsical bloodlust.
  • Self-Made Orphan: She spends a good amount of time murdering her dad in various ways, such as using console commands to kill him at her own birthday party, or summoning Deathclaws to spawn out of thin air and eviscerate him.

     WWE 2K14 (The Pebble) 

Christopher Christopher "The Pebble" Christopher Christopher
Rating: 9/Human
A clone of Rock "The Dwayne" Johnson who didn't turn out quite right.
  • Cloning Blues: A failed clone of The Rock.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Dies offscreen from falling over and breaking his neck (and legs), which Griffin reveals very casually.
  • Killed Off for Real: In the WWE 2k16 episode, it's revealed that he "broke all five of his legs... and his neck. He died."

     Mass Effect 2 (Truck Shepard) 

Commander Truck Shepard
Rating: ERROR
Originally a space-faring kissboy, but quickly devolves into a true space oddity with Griffin's intervention.
  • A God Am I: Griffin and Justin theorize that Truck himself took the reins of how he wanted to look and that he is self-aware. It's stated that Truck can come out of the computer to kill Griffin and make things non-existent with his presence.
  • Alien Geometries: His face, which was created by using a savegame editor to push several variables up a notch.
  • Celibate Hero: He's got no time for romance or kissing because he's trying to figure out how his face works.
  • Facial Horror: Possibly one of the worst monsters. At one point, his face becomes shaped like an asterisk.
    Griffin: If H.P. Lovecraft saw this right now, he would shit his pants to death.
    Justin: He looks like Stephen King's dick exploded.
    Justin: He looks like Wes Craven took a dump in a box fan.
    Griffin: He looks like seven pterodactyls.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: By the end of the video, the brothers agree that he has become sentient and aware of Griffin — and may want to kill him.
  • Gag Lips: Starts off with these, but loses them as the McElroys contort his face more and more.
  • Groin Attack: Is a "robot dick collector" who likes shooting his enemies in the groin.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He crashes the video when the brothers attempt to give him his rating.
  • Why Won't You Die?: Griffin tries to make him commit suicide by standing in a jet of fire, but Truck is only mildly hurt. (The Doylist explanation is that they are in the game's Noob Cave. The Watsonian one is covered by other tropes above.)

     Ark: Survival Evolved (Dino-Lansbury) 

Rating: Perfect
A prehistoric investigator loosely based on Angela Lansbury, especially in Murder, She Wrote.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Once ate 100 pieces of rotten meat, and was still interested in eating some cooked meat after a pterodactyl defecated all over them.
  • Little Old Lady Investigates: Per being modeled after Angela Lansbury in Murder, She Wrote.

     Second Life (The Boy-Mayor, Totinos) 

The Boy-Mayor
Election Results: Win!
A boy running for the position of mayor of Second Life.
  • Appearance Is in the Eye of the Beholder: At one point, he transforms into a regular teenager for Justin but remains the Boy Mayor for Griffin. When he turns into smoke for Griffin, Justin still sees the teenager, until the Boy Mayor turns into something else Griffin dubs his own political body-double.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: Is transformed several times in the "Second Life, Second Chances" trilogy and never regains his original Boy Mayor form (because the preset option the boys used to do their grim work was no longer available.) He adds a picture of his original form to his doghouse in the last part of the trilogy. He has somehow regained his original human form in Monster Mania.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Got bit by a furry at the end of "Second Life, Second Chances - Part Two" and transformed into a dog. In the next episode, he turns back into a dog, turns into a dog-human hybrid, and becomes human again.
  • Stout Strength: A short, round boy; but it's shown to be a decent part muscle in his performance in the Monster Factory Wrestling Federation.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Launches a "pizza party prison" to host his election soiree.
  • 0% Approval Rating: Near the end, his approval rating is mentioned to be -6,000 percent.

Toucan Dan
Rating: Big Thumbs Up
A gun-hating toucan man.

Chiquita Dave
Rating: #1 Chiquita Dave
A pleasant banana man.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Has yellow skin, as befitting his name.
  • Bizarre Human Biology: His internal organs are all banana meat.
  • Dissonant Serenity: His default facial expression is a pleasant smile, earning him the moniker of a "chill-ass banana man."
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Monster Mania reveals his manager Grandpa Piss turned on him to support Brock Lesnarnote .
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: After he loses, Griffin and Justin believe he'll quit wrestling, especially as his doughy, squishy uncle-bod can't take much more wrestling.
  • Me's a Crowd: There exist a number of him that were created for a Chiquita Dave Beach Party.

     Fallout 4 (The Final Pam, Trash Hulk) 

The Final Pam
An immensely powerful harbinger of chaos and disorder.
  • Brown Note: Not permanently active, but has the ability to make everything on her sight instantly dies, if she wishes.
  • Came Back Wrong: She can revive anything she wants but doing so does not heal them, resulting in hideous zombie-like reanimations.
  • Cold Equation: As she and Trash Hulk run for their lives after the bombs drop, she regretfully kills all her neighbors because she surmises that the vault won't hold enough resources to sustain everyone.
  • Complete Immortality: She cannot by harmed by any means. She is ultimately defeated only by sealing her in an unkillable world and uninstalling the whole game. It doesn't work.
  • Dark Action Girl: Canonically the most powerful monster in Monster Factory who trumps other Physical Gods and Reality Warpers like G.A.R.F.I.E.L.D. and D-Bomb.
  • The Dreaded: Pam has made a couple of appearances in other videos, and each time is greeted with dread and terror, as befitting of her power.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The most violent and dangerous monster by far, but she deeply loves her beautiful boys and many husbands.
  • Forced Transformation: Has the ability to turn anyone who sees into anything else. This includes transforming her Robot Husband into a very handsome human man or the Liberty Prime to help her fight.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Her second outfit has her wearing goggles without any real use. The trope itself is averted since she uses them because she it makes her look prettier.
  • Husky Russkie: Never outright referred as Russian, but her accent is clearly meant to be a Russian one and she is massivly bulky and rough.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Regulary devours the corpses of her slain victims.
  • In Touch With Her Feminine Side: Despite her previously mentioned Husky Russkie tendencies, she still enjoys feminine things, such as pretty dresses and wears plenty of make-up.
  • Ironic Hell:Sealed in a world where everything and everyone shares her absolute invulnerability to everything, rendering her destructive aspirations moot.This fails to stop her.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Initially conceived of as the fifth horseman of the Apocalypse. Her power only grows as the Fallout 4 series continues, culminating in her annihilating the game from the inside out, only for it to reform around her as a Lotus-Eater Machine designed to keep her sealed away. In the end, she survives Griffin uninstalling Fallout 4 and proceeds to invade every video game ever made.
    Subj: Containment breach
    God help us all.
  • Kill 'Em All: Her ultimate goal is to do this with the whole game.
  • Make My Monster Grow: One of her many powers. Can also work backwards, making her opponents (or herself for a tactical advantage) tiny.
  • Mind Manipulation: Capable of controlling others around her and even outright turning their brains off.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Come on, would you want to get on the bad side of somebody named Final Pam?
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: During her match with Turbovicki, Pam snaps and unleashes one of these. Starting with an Irish Whip, slamming Turbovicki into the ropes, picking her up and hurling her at the ropes, bouncing off the ropes and using the momentum to kick Turbovicki into the canvas, followed by a legdrop and then a chokeslam. The sheer power of this assault forces Turbovicki to grab a weapon, not that it helped her.
  • Robosexual: In love with Codsworth.
    Hello, metal husband. Three-eyed metal husband.
  • One-Hit Kill: She is over level 4000, resulting in instant death to anything that dares cross her path.
  • Omnicidal Maniac
  • The Power of Creation: Can make anything she wants out of thin air. This includes any living thing or just bombs.
  • Reality Warper: Canonically the strongest monster, and demonstrates this by toying with reality around her. This even extends to the very foundations of the game.
  • Signature Scene: Oftenly shown in her quiet town... with the background dominated by hellish sky and a helicopter she just made explode and is falling into a house.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Can spawn countless bombs and mines instantly, causing this. She can also use her kill-everything-on-sight-attack to make helicopters and other vehicles suffer this fate.
  • Third-Person Person: She speaks like this a whole lot.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Her accent sounds Mexican to some viewers, Russian to others.
  • Willfully Weak: To an extent. She wields an axe despite her fists being ten times stronger, but the axe can still kill anything.

Trash Hulk
The husband of the Final Pam who has a bad case of butterface.

     Black Desert Online (Borth Sampson) 

Borth Sampson
Rating: 0/10
A perfect replica of the famous character from The Simpsons, Bart Simpson.

     Dragon's Dogma (Randyjohnson, Panpan) 

Rating: 0.800
A warrior who throws her companions as projectiles.
  • Fastball Special: Her favorite method of attacking is to throw her companions into her enemies.
  • Swapped Roles: During Monster Mania, the roles are reversed when Panpan throws Randyjohnson instead.
  • Noodle Incident: Has a non-functioning eye, but her scar is over the one that still works, somehow.
  • Weapon of Choice: Panpan.

Randyjohnson's sidekick and main projectile.
  • Fastball Special: Created as a projectile weapon for Randyjohnson, to the point that his original moniker was going to be "Toss Boy." In a twist of fate, performing this with Randyjohnson as the fastball leads to their victory in their MFWF Tag Team match against the Boy-Mayor and Totinos.
  • Younger Than He Looks: Super wrinkly, with Justin comparing him to Benjamin Button.

     Blade & Soul (Succotash, Rat Baby) 

A simply massive man.

Rat Baby
Rating: Vape seed/vape tree
A tiny rat-girl vape activist.
  • Familiar: Fights partly by controlling her feline familiar, Vape Life.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Despite her large, furry ears, she appears otherwise human. Or at least, as human as characters can get on Monster Factory.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Is very passionate about vaping.
  • Unusual Ears: Has large, furry animal ears.

     Dark Souls (#NOID) 

Rating: Richard Karn
A redesigned Noid for the new generation.

     WWE 2K16 (Jorstin, Griffin) 

Rating: 114%
A wrestler version of Justin.

Griffin McElroy
A wrestler version of Griffin, except he's completely normal unlike Jorstin.
  • Team Normal: One of the few Monster Factory creations that isn't a monster, much to Justin's dismay.

     Dark Souls III (The Junker, Hungry-Faced Gil) 

The Junker
Rating: 8/10
A very rowdy, dirty boy.
  • And I Must Scream: Griffin muses on the idea of leaving the game running all day so other players can see the Junker getting killed over and over again for his crimes.
  • Chaotic Stupid: An agent of chaos, and one that will kill his own allies and attack monsters way more powerful than him with nothing but a stick.
  • Deep South: Has a strong accent and is characterized as a stereotypical hick.
  • Expy: Of The Joker. Specifically gets compared to Jared Leto's version from Suicide Squad (2016).
  • Face–Heel Turn: Starts off fighting monsters, and ends the episode as a Sixth Ranger Traitor who tried to kill all his own allies. Seems to stick as a heel in Monster Mania, where he steals Toucan Dan's win and beats the heroic Squirtle with an underwhelming move.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: After clearing out an area of enemies, the Junker turns to the camera and tries waving Griffin and Justin in, telling them it's safe now if they want to get inside.note 
  • Humanoid Abomination: Canonically the son of Kingseeker Frampt from Dark Souls I.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Kills almost everyone at the Firelink Shrine for no reason, and gets his ass kicked about a dozen times in punishment.
  • Religious Bruiser: Is deeply releegious and has his favorite Bible verses engraved in his Weapon of Choice.

Hungry-Faced Gil
Rating: 8/10
The saddest Victorian era-boy ever, featured in Griffin's custom Dark Souls III: EXTREME EDITION.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Some of the depression jokes made by the brothers may hit too close to home.
    Justin, as Griffin adjusts a slider: He goes from like, "Oh, you know, I'm hanging in there," to "Well, actually, now that I think about things, I'm bad."
  • The Eeyore: Perpetually in a state of sadness.
  • The Minion Master: Gil stands by to watch his minion, Sword Master, fight Vordt of the Boreal Valley. His encouragement pays off, and Sword Master is eventually victorious.
  • Mundane Horror: Gil's face is monstrous just because it's so mundane in comparison to the brothers' other monsters. They try pushing him to the usual cartoonish limits, but it just doesn't feel right. He ends up one of their most normal-looking yet awful creations ever.
  • One-Hit Kill: Is capable of killing every enemy in one or two hits. Too bad everything dogpiles him with such speed and murderous vigor that it's hard for him to even run away, let alone attack.
  • Perpetual Frowner: As pictured above.

     Soul Calibur V (Mëlissa) 

Rating: 1 ALF/0 ALFs
A Sly Cooper cosplayer.
  • Action Girl: Natch, she is a Soul Calibur fighter, racks up a decent amount of wins even with an inexperienced player, and manages to beat Leather Daddy Voldo in a five-round matchup as an AI.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Has fairly dark skin and pale pink hair.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: She's the smallest possible character height, putting her head and shoulders below Leather Daddy Voldo.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: Much to their disappointment, the McElroys couldn't make her as hideous as their other creations, so they settled for giving her a silly outfit. In-Universe, she repurposed her Tomba! costume to cosplay Sly Cooper.

     Tiger Woods PGA Tour '08 (Daz) 

Rating: +8
A rookie golfer loosely based on Dennis Farina.

     Saints Row: The Third (Trüllbus) 

Rating: 5 stars
A freakishly dedicated crime fighter.

     Spore (Jaa'm, Shreck the Movie, Buzzbo the Bee Movie) 

The sequel to dogs.

Shreck the Movie
Rating: -80 (as a dog)
Rating: Shrek 5, coming to theaters in 2019 (as Shrek)
A redesigned Jaa'm from a new universe.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: All Shreck the Movies are a nasty pale green.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Initially a doofy-looking green mess, but as the species climbs through the food chain and beats all the competition, it becomes clear that they are a force to be reckoned with. As they enter the tribal stage they become covered in head to toe with ornamental armor and end up looking much cooler than first intended.

Buzzbo the Bee Movie
One iteration of Shreck the Movie saw things taking a detour into a different animated franchise.—-
  • Face–Heel Turn: After the crash, they become the most feared enemies of the Shreck the Movies.
  • The Bus Came Back: The Buzzbos were seemingly Ret-Gone by the game crashing, but later appear as NPC creatures, much to the brothers' shock.

     Wii Sports Resort (Turbovicki, Turbosusan, Turbojanet, DickCheney) 

Turbovicki, Turbosusan and Turbojanet
Rating: Football/curling (for all three)
An incredible bloodline of athletes.
  • The Ace: Turbovicki is created to be the ultimate sportsperson.
  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: Deserved, given that she was getting good hits in on The Final Pam of all people, but her cockiness and showboating when she had the upper hand ultimately cost her the match in the Monster Factory Wrestling Federation.
  • Action Mom: Turbovicki is the ultimate athlete, a Master Swordswoman, and wrestled a Physical God without dying (again). Her daughter Turbosusan is also supposed to be one and Turbojanet is supposed to be an Action Girl.
  • Back from the Dead: Apparently resurrected for Monster Mania.
  • Badass Normal: Gave the Final Pam a run for her money and the biggest challenge Pam has faced. True, Pam was being Willfully Weak, but at one point Patrick believed she was trying to beg for more strength from the forces she gets her powers from, in order to finish off Turbovicki.
  • Batman Grabs a Gun: Despite being billed as the ultimate sportsman, she ends up grabbing a hammer to use as a last ditch resort in her match against the Final Pam. It turns out about as well as you'd expect.
  • Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: Again, got some good hits in during her fight against The Final Pam in the MFWF, but the fight was always meant to end in tragedy for Turbovicki.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Turns out to be very snarky in her brief conversation with DickCheney before their showdown.
  • Genki Girl: Gives off this personality in her Ultimate Warrior style entrance at Monster Mania.
  • Master Swordswoman: Beats DickCheney in Swordplay and then defeats two back-to-back swarms of the Foot Clan. She becomes horrified when the sword gets thirsty for blood, and begs her enemies to run.
  • One-Man Army: Capable of single-handedly fighting off hordes of Foot Clan swordsmen.
  • Skull for a Head: Her face has a bizarre resemblance to this trope. Even moreso in her Monster Mania version, where her face isn't tiny and squeezed together, and more skull-sized; Griffin bursts out in laughter at the sight of it and describes it aptly as a grim mask of death.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Turbovicki, Turbosusan (her daughter) and Turbojanet (her granddaughter) are all identical.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Held up as the world's greatest athlete, but has a less-than-perfect record and some pretty abysmal failures. Her first attempt at three-pointers is a standout example. Griffin explained all this as being on edge and paranoid about DickCheney.

The 46th Vice President of the United States and Turbovicki's rival.

     Champions Online (Knife Dad) 

Knife Dad
Rating: "World's Best Dad, World's Sharpest Knife" mug

  • Beast Man: Has a wolf head and digitigrade legs/feet with multiple ears from several other species, being at least part rabbit, part fox, and part dragon.
  • Blade Enthusiast: Loves knives, including having several knives that he takes care of as children, knives that he eats, and also being a bunch of knives.

  • Messianic Archetype: Takes on an entire group of superheroes as his children, dies, and is revived and let into heaven through the power of their faith, while letting them all bring in more followers to be his children.
  • Monstrous Cannibalism: Eats knives, while also being a sentient collection of knives himself. They may simply be added to his knife-body, though.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: His bio describes him as "part wolf, part mech, part rabbit, part fox, part sunglasses, part dragon, part dad, all dad, all knives." In addition, before becoming a monstrous superhero, he was originally a hamburger.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: His backstory: he was once a hamburger who dreamt of being a man, and a boy-warlock granted him his wish by turning him into the sentient collective of knives that he is today.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His transport power is Rainbow Run.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: Metal cuffs, a metal pauldron on one shoulder and an epaulette on the other, an oversized fedora and thick eyeglasses, and a loincloth, all over a yellow flannel shirt and some dad jeans.
  • Team Dad: Works as an inspirational and motivational component to his superhero team, which is actually named "My Kids."
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Super thick torso, spindly legs.
  • The Worm That Walks: Is actually a sentient amalgam of knives.

Jefferson Tallpipe
Rating: N/A (Justin instead gave 4/5 Stars to an episode of Scrubs)
