In a show all about character creation in video games, there's gotta be some interesting characters with interesting tropes, no?
- Affectionate Nickname: Justin sometimes refers to him as "Grif."
- 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.

- 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.

- 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.)

- Came Back Wrong: She can revive anything she wants but doing so does not heal them, resulting in hideous zombie-like reanimations.
- 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.

- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The most violent and dangerous monster by far, but she deeply loves her beautiful boys and many husbands.

- 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.

In the end, she survives Griffin uninstalling Fallout 4 and proceeds to invade every video game ever made.From: T.Howard@mailpipe.com
Subj: Containment breach
God help us all.—T
- 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.
- 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.

- Willfully Weak: To an extent. She wields an axe despite her fists being ten times stronger, but the axe can still kill anything.

- 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.
- 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.

- Unusual Ears: Has large, furry animal ears.
- Team Normal: One of the few Monster Factory creations that isn't a monster, much to Justin's dismay.

- 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).
- FaceHeel 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

- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green hair, with a green mustache.
- Adult Fear: Some of the depression jokes made by the brothers may hit a little too close to home.

- The Eeyore: Perpetually stuck in a state of sadness.
- The Minion Master: Gil briefly stands by to watch his minion, Sword Master, fight off 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 monster creations. They try pushing him to the usual cartoonish limits, but it just doesn't feel right. He ends up as one of their most normal-looking yet awful creations ever.
- One-Hit Kill: Is capable of killing every enemy with one or two hits. Too bad that they all dogpile on him so quickly and with such murderous vigor that it's hard for him to even run away, let alone attack.
- Perpetual Frowner: As evidenced by his picture above.
- 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.
- Aborted Arc: Griffin suggests at the end of Daz's episode that they recreate Daz in a future sport-related game, but he is not mentioned again.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite the McElroy Brothers' usual playstyle, he ends up a semi-competent golfer.
- The Atoner: Haunted by his previous "golf sins."
- Badass Pacifist: In theory, the result of the brothers trying to do a Pacifist Run in a game that doesn't allow for it.
- Expy: He's partially based on Batman. Unfortunately he didn't go up against the Junker in Monster Mania 2K17.
- Hero with an F in Good: Subverted. He's definitely, definitely a very good non crime-doer. The police even highlight him for it!
- Ironic Nickname: Before they hit on "Trüllbus," Griffin called him "Nasty Crime Boy."Justin: "Wait, you cannot have an anti-crime character named 'Nasty Crime Boy'!"Griffin as Trüllbus in a weird British accent: "Why not? Don't tell me what my name can or cannot be, I've got a weird black hand on my chin."
- Knight Templar: Kills and steals an awful lot in the name of eliminating crime.
- One Mario Limit: He has the same name as Trüllbus, The Big Bang Theory character played by Jim Caviezel.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: "That's definitely a crime, and that one's punishable by crime!"
- Red Baron: The Crime Eater.
- Self-Made Orphan: He killed his parents in an alley after watching Zorro and did it so bad they called it Crime Alley. He was so embarrassed that it made him hate crime.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: None of his guns are lethal. His preferred weapon merely teleports people to Dairy Queen, and his RPG launcher delivers Role Playing Games (specifically classic SNES titles) as opposed to Rocket Powered Grenades.
- Weaponized Teleportation: He has a gun that transports enemy combatants to the nearest Dairy Queen Safety Zone.
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: All Jaa'ms are hot pink.
- Gag Lips: "The Dog That Kisses Back".
- Horse of a Different Color: Designed to replace the dog as the ultimate pet. Its success is... debatable.
- Kill 'Em All: Different stages of evolution for it get this reaction from Griffin and Justin several times and Griffin ultimately destroys the planet they inhabit to get rid of them, admittedly more out of annoyance at Spore than at Jaa'm.
- Superior Successor: Griffin and Justin try to make Jaa'm this to dogs, but the results are usually just flat-out abominations. The final version of Jaa'm is the closest they come and they deck it out with multiple features that are supposed to be superior, but even then they end up trying to delete Jaa'm and eventually blowing up Slam Dunk City with them on it.
- The Bus Came Back: Look closely when Shreck the Movie enters the Tribal stage. The Jaa'ms are one race of enemy creature that the Shrecks would have had to contend with had the brothers continued playing Spore.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Has a backpack full of applesauce.
Shreck the Movie
- 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
Turbovicki, Turbosusan and Turbojanet
- The Ace: Turbovicki is created to be the ultimate sportsperson.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- Poor Man's Substitute: In-Universe, she's this for the actual protagonist of the game, who's gone missing.

- Super Not-Drowning Skills: Both she and her horse can simply walk around on the ocean floor.
- Cat Boy: He was raised by cat people and his goal is to make himself more catlike in order to fit in. He finally succeeds when Griffin uses a potion to re-edit his avatar and change him to the cat person race.
- Delinquent Hair: Has a massive blue and pink pompadour. Griffin even likens it Josuke Higashikata's hairstyle.
Robert Downey Jr. Jr.
- Cloning Blues: He escaped from the clone factory instead of being destroyed, but sometimes he misses it.
