    RED Team 

American Boot (aka Soldier)

  • The Hero: More or less the main protagonist for the videos.
  • Heroic Second Wind: In his battle with Master Cake, after he is healed by Archimedes, he gets back on his feet and catches Master Cake off guard, defeating him.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Is very prone to these when insulting other members of his team:
    ''You are the worst drunk, Russian, Scottish, Canadian, cum-sucking, cupcake fucking, magical painis casting maggots!"
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: He can transform into and from a boot after taking some drugs from the Medic in Everyday Routine and continues to take on the persona of "American Boot".


  • Butt-Monkey: Just like the RED Pyro and the RED Sniper.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Is turned into a Fantastic Drug himself by the RED Medic.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He still has his eye beneath it, unlike his canon counterpart.
  • Sleepy Head: He's been seen dozing off a couple times.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Suddenly shows up near the end of Morning Events, proudly proclaiming his return after the RED Spy harvested his organs just earlier. He immediately gets ran over by American Boot carrying the Payload.


  • Ambiguous Situation: Is he part of the Cake Army or not? He took an interest in cakes back before the Space Cakes ever revealed themselves.
    • Judging by his and Fisherman Engineer's future appearances, the answer seems to be no.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Justifiably moritifed with the RED Medic towards American Boot raping RED Heavy while the latter was disguised as Scout's Mom.
  • Evil All Along: Possibly revealed to be controlled by the Space Cakes in Catastrophically Unusual Troubles.
  • Fantastic Drug: About as prone to using these as American Boot and the RED Heavy.


  • Drives Like Crazy: Much to American Boot's chagrin. His idea of stopping a car is to crash it into a pile of rocks.
  • Pet the Dog: Silences his fellow mercenaries so he can tend to an infant Pyro in peace. Bonus points for the infant being on BLU Team as well.
    • He plays the guitar for the Summer Hat Brothers after their defeat their defeat as the Mecha Spies.
    • He saved the RED Engineer from falling with a telephone pole cut down by the RED Demoman, in turn crushing the Scotsman.


  • Fantastic Drug: He has a lot of these in his office.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: His Revive skill, which takes him out from the battle in order to use it.
  • Lethal Chef / Supreme Chef: On the one hand, he boiled hallucinogenic mushrooms that made American Boot trip out until he was unconscious for an entire night. On the other hand, he served the other RED mercenaries the same mushrooms and didn't seem to be under the same effects.
  • Nice Guy: Some oddities aside, in the first half of the series he is just about the most genuinely friendly person in the series, as seen when thanking RED Engineer and Miss Pauling for handling the Summer Hat Brothers. He's still this during the second half, just now he's a major Troll.
  • Only Friend: With the RED Spy to Merasmus, on the RED Team at least, as he called upon him to revive RED Spy (to which he obliged), and was seen playing Chess with him back when RED Scout was still on Team BLU.
  • Organ Theft: Disassembles and takes the RED Pyro's entire body for profit, minus his head.
  • Reality Ensues: He gets chased down by the police after trying to get illegal drugs in Bizarre Afternoon.
  • Troll: He shows shades of this in his later appearances.


  • Catchphrase: "Fuck you!"
  • Cool Car: Has a red Cadillac and a time-travelling DeLorean.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may be quite the loon, but he's still a malicious sorcerer with an all-powerful Cadillac.
  • Goldfish Poop Gang: He shows up a lot to pester RED Team, especially American Boot and Scout. He seems to be on better terms with BLU Team though, was seen playing a game of Chess with the RED Medic, and is on good terms with the RED Spy.
  • Odd Friendship: With the RED Medic and RED Spy.
  • Pet the Dog: He willingly helped RED Medic in reviving RED Spy in Spy is a Troublemaker, and seemed genuinely distraught when he accidentally turned him into a dove.
  • Verbal Tic: His R rolling.
  • Starter Villain: He was this to RED Scout when he was still on BLU Team, being his answer to American Boot's relationship with Death Machine.

Miss Pauling


  • Butt-Monkey: He's about as prone to injury as the RED Sniper.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Angrily shouts "the fuck" at RED Medic for harvesting his entire body except his head after being crushed.


  • Heel–Face Turn: Was originally on the BLU Team but was switched to the RED Team after a team scramble in BLU Team's Unusual Day.
  • Time Master: Scout can bend time and space using a clock that an angel Scout gave him, usually resorting to reversing it with the aptly-named Time Bend attack.
  • Timey-Wimey Ball: His clock can be a source of this, as when Mecha Heavy bit onto it as he was trying to use it, they and American Boot were sent into different periods, the latter ending up in Spy is a Troublemaker.



  • Adaptational Villainy: Some episodes have him playing the antagonist, primarily Extraordinary Weekend.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Accidentally revived as a dove in Spy is a Troublemaker by Merasmus.
  • Boss Battle' In Extraordinary Weekend, though he has no accompanying Boss Subtitles.
  • The Gambler: Very good at playing against American Boot at card games after they make a bet.
  • Hero Antagonist: He's the antagonist of Extraordinary Weekend, which focuses on BLU Engineer and Heavy.
  • Organ Theft: Steals his fellow Demoman's liver in Morning Events.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: He successfully kills the BLU Heavy after they crash from an arduous chase, only to be attacked by a BLU Scout with his bat as he's laughing from his victory.
  • Unexpected Gameplay Change: When fought in Extraordinary Weekend, his battle is comparable to an overhead shooter ala Galaga or, more accurately, Touhou.


    BLU Team 

Death Machine (aka Ninja Scout)

Mecha Heavy

  • Bandit Mook: A variation of this, as he shouted "NO!" at American Boot calling Merasmus for help, allowing him to use the attack instead.
  • Boss Battle: In Extremely Unusual Troubles.
  • Boss Subtitles:
    Mecha Heavy (is here to kick your nuts)
  • Climax Boss: For the first half of the series.
  • Determinator: He gets alot done for being a head mounted to a telephone. Even in his Boss Battle, after he's launched into the sky and his limbs are blown off, he forces American Boot and RED Scout into finishing the battle with him.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Uses the Earthquake attack the most effectively by pairing it up with the Rage! attack, allowing him to one-shot Spy.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: To Mecha Medic. Becomes a case of Dragon Their Feet after the events of Unusual Troubles.
  • EX Special Attack: Rage! turns his attacks into these.
  • High-Altitude Battle: His second phase is this.
  • Humongous Mecha: Pilots one for his boss fight.
  • Mighty Glacier: He moves last during his battle with American Boot, Spy, and Scout, but has the most health of any boss and is the only one with a second phase, while also packing a lot of damage.
  • More Dakka: His Minigun attack, of course.
  • Sequential Boss: After being punched into the skies and losing his limbs, he drags Scout and American Boot into the air with him using chains for a (very short lived) second phase.
  • Status Buff: Rage!, seemingly allowing him to concentrate the Earthquake attack onto one target, reducing splash damage but one-shotting the target.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never find out what happened to him after he bit Scout's time-bending clock, thereby scattering them across the timestream. This is notable as this makes him the character to have been missing from several episodes for the longest time, with even the likes of the Summer Hat Brothers making a few appearances afterwards.

Mecha Medic

  • Boss Battle: The real one of Unusual Troubles.
  • Boss Subtitles:
    Mecha Medic (Your Bloody Oktoberfest)
  • Dishing Out Dirt: The first to use the Earthquake attack.
  • Not Quite Dead: Even after being defeated in battle and dismantled for parts but the Summer Hat Brothers, he's still alive.. as a head on top of a cupcake.
  • Out of Focus: Aside from his apparent survival from being destroyed and likely being the same BLU Medic in BLU Team's Unusual Day, he makes no further appearances compared to the other antagonists.
  • Spider Tank: He rides around one, or his lower half is one.

Mecha Spies (aka Summer Hat Brothers)

Captain Scout

  • Boss Battle: In Bizarre Afternoon.
  • Boss Subtitles:
    Captain Scout (On a armed boat)
  • The Bus Came Back: Makes a surprise reappearance as the boss of Bizarre Afternoon.
  • Cool Boat: Always seen with his battleship, the S.S. We're Done Sucking Juicy Cocks.
  • Not Quite Dead: Turns out to have survived being bombed by Medic, returning for a rematch in Bizarre Afternoon.
  • Unexpected Gameplay Change: In the same way as Spy's battle in Extraordinary Weekend, albeit against American Boot instead.

Fisherman Engineer

  • Ambiguously Evil: He's on the BLU Team, but doesn't actively engage anyone. About the most spiteful thing hs's done is drive off with Miss Pauling's motorcycle after she ran into him, though it's unsure whether this was him being malicious or perceiving this as her gifting it to him.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Much like RED Engineer, whether he is part of the Cake Army or not. After Master Cake was defeated, he still showed up, as though nothing happened.
  • Badass Driver: He's impeccably good at dodging the valley of cannons fired at him by American Boot.
  • Cannon Fodder: He's possibly just one of the many BLU Engineers that comprise the Cake Army.
  • Evil All Along: Possibly revealed to be controlled by the Space Cakes in Catastrophically Unusual Troubles.
  • Made of Iron: Took several neck stabs before he died (temporarily) in Extraordinary Weekend, trying to call for help during that time. Just earlier he was hit by Miss Pauling speeding around on her motorcycle, and didn't even move or react as she flew off her seat.
    • He takes a massive Loose Cannon shot to the face, sending him flying and destroying his boat, but he himself seems completely unharmed, if a little upset.
  • Uniformity Exception: He wears the Last Straw in place of the usual hardhat his peers don.

Joker Scout


Space Cakes

  • Anthropomorphic Food: Are a race of sentient cakes.
  • Attack Deflector: The aptly named Deflection, at least against explosives.
  • Bishōnen Line: Master Cake has his "head" mounted atop the body of a man in a suit.
  • Boom, Headshot!: After having his head kicked off, Master Cake is on the receiving end of this from American Boot's shotgun. It doesn't work.
  • Boss Battle: Master Cake in Catastrophically Unusual Troubles and Endless Unusual Troubles.
  • Boss Subtitles:
    Master Cake (Conqueror from Alpha Caketauri)
    Master Cake (With Soldier's Body)
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Master Cake, being set up as the ultimate evil, but after his defeat, Mr. Baguette takes the title as Big Bad. Except exactly...
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Master Cake wields the Space Minerals attack, which visually resembles Earthquake.
    • He finally uses Earthquake itself while controlling Future!American Boot's body.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Master Cake's ultimate fate, trapped within the RED Engineer's toolbox which in turn is sent through time by a damaged time machine.
  • Flunky Boss: Master Cake summons the Mecha Spies and Death Machine during his battle with American Boot.
  • Foreshadowing: A cake without a plate is seen playing Chess with the RED Medic while the RED Engineer watched, who simply thought to himself "I love that little cake!" Whether this was an actual Space Cake or not is up in the air.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The Space Cakes invade Earth to keep American Boot from destroying the timeline.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: RED Spy uses Mr. Baguette's mask to have Master Cake's own Cake Army to turn on him, dealing high damage.
  • Machine Monotone: Master Cake speaks like this, though his lieutenant's urgent tone regarding American Boot messing with the timeline implies the rest of them may be a subverted case.
  • Not Quite Dead: Turns out that Master Cake survived his bout with American Boot, forcefully teaming up with his future self along the way.
  • Power Echoes: Most evident with Master Cake.
  • Reality Warper: Can teleport anywhere, assume the forms of an Engineer, and even make and restore backups of reality.
  • Shock and Awe: Master Cake's Nebula Lightning attack.
  • Villains Out Shopping: They seem to pass time by playing ping pong. A possible member of their species was also seen playing Chess with the RED Medic.

Haunted Pyro
