All of the hosts of Oneyplays are referred as “Funny Boys”, regardless on whether they are male or not.

Primary Hosts(2014-2018)

    Chris O'Neill (Oney)
The Meat.
An animator and musician from Ireland (who later moved to California). Chris, aka "Oney," got his start making Flash-animated cartoons on Newgrounds, many of which he put on YouTube, including Leo And Satan. As the titular Oney, he has been in every episodes.

  • Animal Motifs: Heavily associated with monkeys, especially on the subreddit.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Chris has a bizarre sense of humor, and often follows his own brand of logic while making up or answering hypothetical questions.
    Random YouTube commenter: Maybe Chris draws like that because that's how he sees the world.
  • Country Matters
  • Crosses the Line Twice: He does this often. See N-Word Privileges for just one example.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Has two pet cats, Django and Sushi.
  • The McCoy: With DingDong and Julian.
  • No Indoor Voice: Chris shouts a lot, to the point where there's almost a shouting match with DingDong once a series and one loud moment per episode.
  • N-Word Privileges: Chris is very liberal with his use of the words "gay" and "faggot." When pressed on it, the general response is that Julian is gay and he thinks that Chris's jokes are funny so he doesn't care.
    Oney: Listen, just because you're a faggot-word
    Matt/DingDong: WOAH!
    Julian: ...what? He said "word."
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: He'll occasionally stop being funny for a moment if he wants to correct some impressions he's left on people, such as how his gay jokes against Julian are un-serious nonsense or how he respects The Nostalgia Critic despite how much they rag on him.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Chris impersonates the announcer from Smash Brothers in the openings for the second set of Left 4 Dead videos. It trails off when he says, "This is going to be shit!"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oney to both Ding Dong and Julian.
  • Seinfeldian Conversation: Comes in the form of many hypothetical questions. His most famous one involved whether or not the other hosts would physically abuse a 6-inch clone of Adolf Hitler, provided it has the memories of Hitler.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot

The Long.

A game programmer, who operates Wan Wan Games with his friend Julian. He first appeared playing Second Life with Chris. He and Julian left OneyPlays permanently at around 2017.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Though he might start shouting at random or make funny accents, he is definitely the most level-headed of the three.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": In response to some fans trying to find out his real name, he sets up a running gag with Chris and Julian where they provoke him by calling him different fake names. In the Banjo-Kazooie playthrough alone he goes from "Max" to "Ian" and then eventually to "Mason."
  • Early Installment Character-Design Difference: His design in the title cards for Chronicles of Mystara looks like a phallic shape (which might have been related to his name). Every video with him since depicts him in the title cards with his usual Rabbid-styled look. This is jokingly written off during the Pikmin playthrough as that being his larval state, from which he grew into the bunny-eared alien we now know.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Since he prefers to keep his identity entirely hidden, his depiction on title cards is a placeholder design Julian came up with. He's supposed to be an alien of some sorts, but Oney rendering the hosts in solid white makes him look like a rabbid. Most any time discussing what DingDong looks like is brought up, he usually goes along with it and makes a Rabbid reference.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Julian’s Blue Oni, but even he doesn’t compare to Chris’s power.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Has some elements of this, though not as many as Chris.
  • The Spock: With Chris and Julian.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: According to his Wan Wan profile, chicken katsu curry "as spicy as it comes."

    Julian Marcel
The Stink.

An artist and designer, who operates Wan Wan Games with his friend DingDong. He first appeared in the playthrough of Luigi's Mansion.

  • Accentuate the Negative: Julian does this at the start of Super Monkey Ball, as he's already bothered by playing the game. (It doesn't help that Julian has a history of being scared by games with large falls and precise jumps.) He likely has a history of doing so, as during Banjo-Kazooie Julian makes a comment that DingDong misconstrues as negative within the first two minutes and DingDong actually yells and chastises him for already finding something to hate about the game.
  • Catchphrase: Julian tends to ask a lot of "what if" questions, so him saying "What would you do if...?" could be considered as this.
  • Corpsing: They've all done it numerous times, but Julian in particular is self-admittedly bad at keeping a straight face through a joke.
  • Eye Scream: He tells a (fake) story about injuring his eye on a stick and replacing it with a glass eye.
  • Ho Yay: Julian is gay, and quite a few jokes are made at his expense or even because of his preferences (Julian often thinks they're funny himself). Matt (whose preference is unknown) and on fewer occasions DingDong (who is gay, and even Julian's boyfriend, but not vocal about it) also join in and get the receiving end of a few of these.
  • The Hyena: Out of the group, he's the one that laughs a lot to their jokes.
  • The Kirk: With Chris and DingDong.
  • Nightmare Fetishist
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to both DingDong and Chris.
  • Signature Laugh: Julian's laugh is instantly recognizable. Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things pointed out it sounds like Mario from "Mama Luigi."
  • Trademark Favorite Food: According to his Wan Wan profile, a turkey club sandwich with steak fries.

Main Hosts 2017-Present

    Zach Hadel (Psychicpebbles)
The Gremblo
The man himself. Another YouTube and Newsgrounds animator that is infamous for his Deranged Animation. The second half of Web Animation/Hellbenders

There was also the time where Zach apparently said something so bad they had to completely censor what he said.
Zach: Hey everybody did you know that if you- (7 continuous seconds of censor bleep)?
Oney: You can’t say that. I’m pretty sure that’s literally going to get the channel deleted.

    Lyle Burruss (Lyle McDouchebag)
The Douchebag
A friend and editor of the channel, Lyle McDouchebag was one of the people that became a part of the show after DingDong and Julian left. He is now one of the main hosts.

Additional Hosts

    Matt Watson
One of the hosts of the Let's Play show SuperMega, with his friend Ryan Magee. From summer 2016 to early 2019, he was the co-editor of Game Grumps alongside Ryan. Unfortunately, since 2017, he has stopped making videos with OneyPlays, as Chris stated that they are no longer friends.
  • Nothing but Skin and Bones: He's very thin, so in the thumbnails (and a Blender image created by Chris) he's depicted as this.
  • Sixth Ranger: In 2016 and 2017, he showed up more often than any other guest, including good chunks of Pokemon Red, Kingdom Hearts (including the infamous "Hitler clone" scenario), Banjo Kazooie, and other smaller series.

    Ryan Magee
some caption text
The other half of the channel SuperMega. Alongside of Matt, he was the co-editor of Game Grumps from the summer of 2016 to early 2019. Unlike Matt however, he has shown up less times than Matt.

    Waffle (Superprowaffles)
The Waffle

Special Guests

Yes, THAT SHADMAN. He only appeared once playing PUBG online with Chris.


    Jon Jafari 
Yes, that Jon Jafari. For more info, check his page.

Fictional Characters

    Crash Bandicoot 
The titular character of Crash Bandicoot. He's mostly similar to his canon video-game interpretation, except for being more insane and far less intelligent.
  • Axe-Crazy: Has no qualms about spin attacking an entire police force in order to escape.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He's horrified at the very idea of someone putting gems up his urethra.
  • Hostage Situation: Was once held hostage and was threatened to be killed if the name "Beefaroni" didn't get enough votes. Luckily for Crash, it did.
  • Pædo Hunt: He ends up spin attacking several police men and Chris Hansen after being accused of this.
  • Pokémon Speak: Downplayed. He can speak in full sentences but most of his dialogue consists of him saying "Whoa!".

    N. Gin 
One of the bosses of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. Chris and Julian interpret him as being Julian's dad.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents
  • Bumbling Dad: His parental skills are questionable at best. For one thing, he thinks Julian (a grown man) is still in school.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: At least, they make you violate your son's personal space.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: N. Gin wants to do this to Julian. More specifically, he wants to "burn him into a robot" and replace Julian's genitals with a rocket. Apparently, the latter has happened before since Julian tells him that they can't do that everyday.

It was the dawn of a new day, when Motifa came to our planet.
An obese black woman created during the second playthrough of Grand Theft Auto V. Through the heavy use of mods in that series, she displays superhuman abilities. The boys spent no time using her to wreak as much havoc as possible.

    Inspector Gadget 
Normally a bumbling cyborg inspector, here he's a crazy Reality Warper obsessed with brown bricks in Minecraft.

  • Catchphrase: "Brown bricks". Also, "Go Go Gadget", just like in the original series, but instead of being followed up with any actual gadgets (like "Go Go Gadget copter"), it's followed by complete sentences, which proceed to warp reality.
    Inspector Gadget: Go Go Gadget gravity is now inverted.
    Inspector Gadget: Go Go Gadget your memories are all fake.
    Inspector Gadget: Go Go Gadget the color black everywhere is now white.
  • Jerkass: Usually uses his reality warping powers to torture Penny.
  • Reality Warper: He can make anything happen just by stating "Go Go Gadget" followed by whatever he wants.

    Big Penny 
A rapper thought up during a playthrough of Kingdom Hearts, whose gimmick revolves entirely around pennies.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Eats pennies, to the point that one of his songs is an outright cry for help regarding this issue.

How well does it match the trope?
