A list of characters from The Oats Series.
All spoilers are unmarked.
Debut: Season 1, Episode 1: "Brother, I Require Your Oats"
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": They refer to each other as "brother," while Big Pete calls them "BOIS." If they're ever called anything by any other character, it's usually something along the lines of "pig."
- No Name Given: Are never given actual names. Big Pete implies the two brothers have actual names in Big Pete, but simply says that their names will not be mentioned.
- Big Brother Bully: He isn't above resorting to unsavory tactics to get oats from his brother, even when he has plenty of oats for himself already. Often it's through guilt-tripping.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Sends Younger Brother flying into space in Younger Brother in response to Younger Brother denying him oats.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: After defeating Big Pete in Oats Movie 3 and being left alone in the destroyed universe, he starts hallucinating.
- Greed: His bottomless desire for oats is his driving motivation, even when it comes to saving the entire universe.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Tends to get a bit moody when denied his oats. Which is often.
- Refusal of the Call: Bluntly refuses to help Big Pete seal away his evil side in "The Oativersary."
- Sensory Abuse: His "transformations" are depicted by random visual effects accompanied by ear-bleedingly loud noises. He doesn't actually transform into anything unless him changing color one time counts.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Oats, of course. To the point where he is willing to fight the God of Evil in one-on-one combat just for a taste.
- What Have You Done for Me Lately?: Is very fond of listing out every thing he's done for his brother, and often for the world in general, when demanding oats.
- Catchphrase: Shares "NO OATS" with Kek, although he doesn't say it as often.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite previously being a member of The Order of the Dark Oats and having powers involving lasers and dimensional travel learned during his time with them, he is ready to defend the world.
- The Dog Bites Back: Often responds to his brother's unscrupulous tactics to obtain his oats with a similar response of his own, whether it just be eating his oats or threatening him with a weapon.
- Eye Beams: Shoots lasers out of his eyes to fight off Kek and protect his brother in Season 1 Episode III.
- FaceHeel Turn: Younger Brother hinted at him having evil ambitions. However, the series was Cut Short and as such this was never followed up.
- Famous Last Words: "[Big Pete] deserves...NO OATS."
- Little "No": He often replies to Older Brother's demands for his oats with a straightforwards "no."
Big Pete / Massive Peter Giganticus: the Large
Debut: The Oats Movie 1
- Big Bad: His Superpowered Evil Side threatens the entire universe in Oats Movie 3.
- Big Good: In Oats Movie 1 he seems to have the most knowledge of how to handle Kek and is the brothers' best ally. He has the same role in Oats Movie 2 alongside the other two trigods (Lazy Pete in particular).
- "My name is Big Pete, and I talk loud because I am big, yo."
- Department of Redundancy Department: His actual name, Massive Peter Giganticus the Large.

- Good Is Not Nice: While generally on the side of protecting the universe, he isn't above killing anyone who violates the rules, as Small Pete learns in Small Pete.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: A somewhat odd example. Big Pete becomes an Omnicidal Maniac whenever he falls asleep. Unfortunately, everyone, even a Trigod, has to sleep sometime.
- Invincible Villain: His Superpowered Evil Side is never truly successfully stopped and kills everyone who dares oppose him. Even Older Brother's victory over him was just because he chose to fight him one-on-one instead of leaving him trapped.
- Knight of Cerebus: His Superpowered Evil Side, again. He has a single minded focus on killing everyone and everything, and many of his humorous aspects from previous episodes are toned down.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Is "canonically invincible to almost everything."

- Physical God: Big Pete, in Small Pete, is revealed to be one of the three trigods ruling Multidimensional System 3 (consisting of the Dimensions of Oats, Pigs, Tax Exemptions, and Humans).

- Back from the Dead: After being offed by Big Pete in Oats Movie 1, Kek messing with dimensions brings him back as a ghost in Oats Movie 2.

- Mercy Kill: Big Pete sees his death in Small Pete as doing him a favor, as being trapped in the Dimension of Humans is just that awful in his opinion.
- The Philosopher: His first appearance has him offering philosophical advice, and tends to pop up whenever philosophy is being discussed.
- Trapped in Another World: Is trapped in the human dimension in Small Pete. His attempts to leave wind up violating a regulation of Multi-dimensional System 3 and gets him killed by Big Pete.
