Go To

A deadpan Slavic internet reviewer whose focus is on children's card games. He tends to go about life with a snarky and deadpan attitude...all while attracting various oddities.
  • The Alcoholic: You would be too if you had to deal with the stuff he does.
  • Butt-Monkey: Rata himself is often the subject of physical abuse that is Played for Laughs, almost entirely by The One Whose Shape Was Snatched.
  • Caustic Critic: Given the focus on poor-quality designs, this is a given. That said, Rata is very willing to praise cards that are designed well.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: As the videos go on, he displays very insane traits during intro segments...probably owing to the topics of madness that he has to cover.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Not a big fan of green beans, or beans in general.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Rata often insults himself, either directly or through his writing.
  • The Snark Knight: Rata is characterized as this fairly often; he's depressive and focuses on both the failures of others and himself, but that's only because he believes that things can be so much better.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Apparently banished by a dragon bite, he looks no worse for wear. He also apparently died in the Crystal Beasts video from a "crystal healing" method.
  • Weirdness Magnet: As of this entry, Rata has somehow managed to attract The One Whose Shape Was Snatched into a house guest since the Guardians video, had Guardian Dreadscythe takeover in the same video, an alien from the Aliens video and a Cloudman appear in the Cloudian video, among others.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In the Madolche video, he's shown wearing a dress. Not on his own accord, mind you.
  • Vague Age: The wiki describes Rata rather accurately as "a 22-year-old Slavic man with looks that range between 8 and 35 years old, depending on the weather."

    The One Whose Shape was Snatched 
A strange, mysterious entity who came into relatively recent prominence. He is currently staying with Rata, and brings his own brand of madness for the day he claims he can buy back his shape.
  • Abstract Eater: Of sorts. He requires Duel Energy to sustain himself, and if Rata does not make enough videos, he wastes away to his head.
  • Ascended Extra: He was originally a joke that popped up from time to time. Starting from his appearance at the very end of the Legacy of the Worthless Series, he's now become a genuine character for the more skit-oriented Archetype Archive.
  • Big Bad: Is shaking up to be one.
  • Catch Phrase: "It's bake sale time!" Subverted as he only used it once.
  • The Comically Serious: The One Whose Shape Was Snatched seems to be perpetually grumpy and delivers every line (despite having a mostly computerized voice up until the Archetype Archive featuring Ice Barriers) with authority. This is in spite of his actual dialogue and appearance being more fitting of a Talkative Loon.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He appears to be one - a cyclopean being with bizarre and vague supernatural powers, implied at various points to be completely inhuman.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: He possesses "many rods", which can accomplish pretty much whatever the Rule of Funny requires, from pacifying a baby doll to pointing out that Guardians are an archetype.
  • The Reveal: The only reason he's bunking with Rata is to claim 'review energy' with which he can use to buy back his shape. That being said, he's a bit of a kook, so take it with a grain of salt. The Inzektor video reveals that he may, in fact, not have been lying.
  • Talkative Loon: Comes across as this.
  • Wham Line: "The truth is, I need your review energy."

    Ojama Lime 
A unreleased Ojama card and ex-con. He travels the multiverse, usually getting into more trouble as he goes along.
  • Ascended Extra: Started out as a one-time joke character at the end of the Archetype Archive for Ojamas, he now seems to have his own Story Arc.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Simpleton he may be, but he once stole Rata's car, and he's quite capable in a duel.
    Lime: That's what happens when you fuck with me.
  • Book Dumb: Has trouble understanding the big words Tour Guide From the Underworld uses.
  • Butt-Monkey: Manages to outdo Rata in this tense.
  • The Chew Toy: As it turns out, being an Ojama really, really sucks.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially when dealing with "Detroit" (i.e. Dark Sanctuary)
  • Establishing Character Moment: His debut appearance has him star in a PSA against "Dark Yugitubing", which he was caught being involved in and punished with a life of farming sand.
  • Gonk: He's not the prettiest Ojama in the country. Then again, what's the competition?
  • Nice Guy: From what we've seen so far (excluding him insulting the viewers in one video but that doesn't seem to be canon).
  • Hidden Depths: He used to be a musician. Specifically heavy metal.
  • Pungeon Master: He calls Dark Jeroid a handful, and likes making prank calls.
  • Self-Deprecation: A bit of this shines through when he prank calls an alternate version of himself.
    Lime: Hi! This is Ojama Lime.
    Alt. Lime: Wow, me too!
    Lime: Wow, I'm sorry to hear that.
  • Talkative Loon
  • The Stinger: He mainly appears during these, starting with the Ojama Archetype Archive episode.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Is called into the heavens by Solemn Johnson to become his avatar, but is quickly thrown back down to Earth after Johnson realizes that Lime isn't Airknight Parshath.

    Dark Jeroid 
One of Yami Marik's monsters, he appears to have joined up with Ojama Lime as his steed.
  • After-Combat Recovery: In the Legacy of the Something video.
  • Androcles' Lion: Lime helped him out in Seattle at a con thus he helps him back.
  • Ascended Extra: Used to be a joke in the Legacy of the Worthless video for Vehicroids, but seems to have become an actual character concerning Ojama Lime's perspective.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Helps out Ojama Lime despite his creepy appearance.
  • In Name Only: Is technically a -roid. He doesn't look the part, and apparently isn't according to Tour Guide From the Underworld.

    Malefic Rata 
An entity that appeared for the Archetype Archive for Malefics. He died a few seconds into his introduction.
