Foods

    General 
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Most of them are named after the fruit they are, if not containing a preceding adjective that makes it avert this trope.
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: They have two left eyes or two right eyes depending on which way they're facing.
  • Animated Actors: Some videos show them to be these. Daneboe is apparently their director.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: Obviously, they are sentient food.
  • Invisible Anatomy: They have no hands or feet, and often joke about it, particularly when they play video games.
  • Only One Name: With some exceptions.
  • Species Surname: More like Species Only One Name—the few with full names have standard Species Surnames.

    Annoying Orange 

Voiced by: Dane Boedigheimer (Daneboe)

First appearances: The Annoying Orange & ''The Annoying Orange OUTTAKE

  • The Hyena: Try keeping track of how many times he laughs at his own jokes without losing count.
  • It Amused Me: The reason behind most of his antics towards other foods is just for the sake of a sick gag on his behalf.
  • It Runs in the Family: Orange's family members have shown up in various episodes. All of which have established that they are just as annoying as he is.
  • Jerkass: Orange is regularly annoying and obnoxious by driving others insane with his non-stop puns and laugh. After Flanderization, his genuine love for Passion and his bond with his sister remain his only consistent redeeming qualities.
  • Karma Houdini: He almost always avoids consequences for his Jerkass behavior. Even when he receives some well-deserved humiliation, it's usually short-lived.
  • Lack of Empathy: Orange shows very little concern whenever the other foods get brutally murdered, instead continuing his routine of comedy.
  • Large Ham: Monster Burger being one of the particular examples of him being this trope.
    Orange: You ate lettuce, cheese, and tomato... ALIVE! YOU ARE A MONSTER!
  • Laughably Evil: While a stretch to call him 'evil', he is an Anti-Role Model with his ruthless mocking of other foods yet we just can't help but find him amusing at the same time.
  • Laughing at Your Own Jokes: He does this all the time. Actually becomes a plot point in one episode of the TV series.
  • Mad Bomber: He loves TNT, with practically every How To episode ending with some going off, or him trying to shoehorn it in one way or another, to Pear's dismay. It also shows up a lot in Ask Orange.
  • McNinja: In Kung Fruit he learns the ancient ways of the Ninja Fruit from the Ninja Fruit apple.
  • Meaningful Name: Say "an orange" real fast.
  • Motor Mouth: As a side-effect of being on Caffeine Bullet Time in ZOOM! Made even more hilarious by the theme music being sped up in the background.
  • The Nicknamer: A shtick of his is to take his current companion's name and alter it in some way, much to their annoyance.
  • No Indoor Voice: Starting with "Crabapple", Orange's voice becomes louder.
  • The Noseless: Lampshaded in Ask Orange #4: Master Chef!
    Announcer: (reading question) Why don't you have a nose?
    Orange: Wait, I don't have a nose? (the camera zooms in on his face as he screams with terror)
  • Pity the Kidnapper: Jigsaw can't stand him.
  • Pungeon Master: He's definitely good at this.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Pear's Blue Oni. He's loud and immature, while Pear is smart and reasonable.
  • Sadist: After Flanderization, he seems to relish note  in other foods (even his own friends) getting the brutal short end of the stick.
  • Signature Laugh: His laugh alone is a distinguishing part of his character.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: For Liam the Leprechaun and almost every one-shot character.
  • The Sociopath: A low-functioning example. He has a Lack of Empathy towards other foods getting butchered right in front of him, can inflict Cold-Blooded Torture on his buddies for the sake a gag and has no problem driving others to borderline insanity.
  • Troll: His main hobby is getting a rise out of other foods.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Not that he was ever particularly a saint, but later episodes of the web series have made him out to be more malicious in his heckling and treating his friends like butts of the joke more often than not. It's gotten to the point where Grapefruit seems like a nicer guy.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: He makes fun of other foods, is an unrepentant Gasshole and treats his friends more like punchlines than companions, but that's what draws people to him.
  • Villain Protagonist: He ventures into this as time goes on, with his Lack of Empathy and borderline sadism becoming more blatant.
  • Vocal Evolution: Not a very big one, but if you listen to his voice in earliest videos such as Plumpkin and his voice in Crabapple, you'll definitely notice his voice got higher and more nasally starting with "Crabapple".
  • With Friends Like These...: Pear, Little Apple and Grapefruit are just as annoyed with his antics as everyone else and constantly fall victim to his shenanigans, yet they somehow still remain his closest companions.

    Pear 

Voiced by: Dane Boedigheimer (Daneboe)

First appearance: The Annoying Orange

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pear.png

  • Nice Guy: For the most part, he's a friendly guy to others, especially compared to Orange.
  • No Respect Guy: He's constantly looked down upon for being "boring".
  • Only Sane Fruit: While he can sometimes be just as annoying as Orange, he will often act as this if there is nobody else to do it.
    (while Orange is being cloned in Million Clones)
    Pear: This is a terrible idea! No good can come from this!
    Voice: It's not terrible, Pear. What better way to thank the subscribers than to make a million Oranges?
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Orange's Red Oni. He's smart and reasonable, while Orange is loud and immature.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice got higher after his first appearance, but eventually went back down.
