Tokyo Encounter Hosts
Tropes associated with both hosts:
- Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: For most of the time, Sugita is the boke and Nakamura is the tsukkomi.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: After a tie, Sugita and Nakamura totally destroy Koshimizu and Sanpei during their second match in Halo: Reach.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Both are best friends for many years, as you can see on this show. Haruka Tomatsu mistook the studio for being their house. And Mizuki jokes about the two of them being in love with each other, even saying that Sugita always talks about Nakamura when the three of them go to dinner. Sugita however doesn't like the joke. When the three of them play KuriKuri Mix, Nakamura and Sugita are a much better team than any team with only one of them and Mizuki.
- We also learn that they first met each other during their work in Dennou Boukenki Webdiver back in 2001, where both of them played a Humongous Mecha. Since both were the same age, they started to talk with each other... and the rest is history.
- Large Ham: Both of them can be very hammy.
- Last-Name Basis: Despite being best friends for years, they address each other by their last names.
- The Narrator: Sugita and Nakamura narrate the two Clip Show specials. Sugita narrates for the first special and uses a normal narrator voice, while Nakamura narrates for the second special, but goes for a higher pitched over-the-top narration.

- Sugita, Nakamura and the guest of the respective episodes.
- Sugita, Nakamura and Kondo the Narrator are the Seiyuus who appear in every episode.
- Senpai Kohai: The senpais to Kaji, Yuuki, Eguchi, Uesaka, Okamoto and Komatsu. And the kohais to Sakurai, Okiayu, Mizuki and Horie.
- Serious Business: They play games seriously, whether it's against men, women or children.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: They argue often, but they are best friends no less.
- "What'd you mean 'what the heck?!' What do you think it was?! I don't know how to be a tsukkomi to that 'damnit, what the heck?!'"
One of the two hosts of Tokyo Encounter, and the one who has more common sense. Though, he can be snarky and a bit rough, he's actually a friendly man. Nakamura is always the first player of this show.

- Sore Loser: In episode 6, when they play Savage Reign and Kaji beats him in two matches, the frustrated Nakamura turns the Neo-Geo off. Ironic, considering he had stopped Sugita from turning off the console after he won in a match of Ryuuko no Ken 2.
- Spam Attack:
- Notably when he and Ono play The King of Fighters '94, where Nakamura ends up spamming projectile attacks to protect his characters (Terry Bogart and Joe Higashi) who have very little health left.

- Straight Man: Nakamura is this to Sugita and has more common sense than him.
- Support Party Member: In episode 42, when he, Sugita and Shimono play Trine: The Lost Relic, Nakamura plays Amadeus the Magnificient, a mage with no offensive power whose only role is to help their party pass through obstacles by creating platforms and moving objects with telekinesis.

- True Companions: At the end of episode 63, when they play Friday the 13th: The Game, Nakamura manages to get access to the car. Instead of just driving off, he goes to pick up Sugita and they escape from the camp together.

Tropes associated with Tomokazu Sugita:
- Adorkable: Sugita always acts awkward whenever a female guest appears. He either makes too many dirty jokes or too many compliments.
- Badass Baritone: He has a naturally deep voice. Sometimes, he voices characters during the show with really deep voices. His Norio Wakamoto impression is the most notable example.
- Casting Gag:
- Cloudcuckoolander: He can be this, sometimes.
- Cool Mask: His Mr. Karate tengu mask.
- Double Entendre: Some of his dirty jokes are this.
- Of Houko Kuwashima, who is mentioned very often in this show. He has been a fan of her since his high school days despite being only into 2D girls and it's comparable to an idol crush.
- Also to Norio Wakamoto.
- When they play Dragon Ball Fighter Z in episode 57, Sugita naturally picks Kuwashima and Wakamoto's respective characters, Artificial Human No. 21 and Cell.
- To a lesser degree, Saori Hayami, too.

- His favorite heroine from Amagami is Kaoru Tanamachi, as revealed in episode 18.
- His favorite character from Yu Yu Hakusho is the younger Toguro, as revealed in episode 7.
- His favorite girl from Ore Imo is Ayase Aragaki, as mentioned in episode 35 and later in 48-sho Gaiden. He doesn't earn any points by Taketatsu with her, though.
- Hypocritical Humor: In episode 12, when they play Bomberman 94 and Sanpei kills an egg so nobody can't get it, we get this:Sugita: "How cruel! You took an innocent life... you should go die!"
Nakamura: "'You took a life, go die'; that makes no sense. It's like 'you're the one saying it!'"
- Lovable Sex Maniac: He absolutely loves making dirty jokes, but he's one of the most beloved seiyuus in the industry.Shimono: "This kid here, seriously. He's kinda obsessed with dirty jokes, isn't he?"
Nakamura: "There've been more and more since the show started."
Shimono: "Ah, really?"
Nakamura: "But the most was when the female guests came."
Nakamura: "I say dirty jokes, but it was really sexual harassment."

- Say My Name: When Sugita sees a dog, he calls it Naoji, Nakamura says.
- Spam Attack: In episode 58, when they play The King of Fighters '94, Sugita keeps spamming Brian Battler's Brian Tornado; the main reason being how ridiculous and hilarious it looks.
- Super Drowning Skills: In episode 6, it is said that Sugita almost drowned in the ocean a long time ago. Since he can't swim, you could just put him in the ocean if you want to kill him, he says.
- Unusual Euphemism: When playing with Artificial Human No. 21 (voiced by his beloved Houko Kuwashima), Sugita wants to offer her his ""umaibo". No.21 is an extreme Sweet Tooth, so it could double as a Double Entendre if the euphemism wasn't that obvious.
The narrator of the show, who is played by Takashi Kondo. Before a new game or quest starts, the narrator introduces and explains the game or the quest rules. He also shows up during the game when the shows skips some parts of the games.

- Large Ham: Like most narrators of Japanese shows, Kondo plays a hammy narrator.
- Lemony Narrator: Kondo narrates the show with a high-pitched hammy voice for most of the time, but he changes the mood of his voice to fit the atmosphere of the games. In episode 3, Sugita jokes that he and Nakamura should give their game characters difficult names, so Kondo would have a hard time to pronounce the names, but Sugita apologizes several times to Kondo after Nakamura really added the names "Yododono" and "Nenedono". Though, Kondo has no problems with pronunciating the names (this happens again in episode 22).
- One Steve Limit: Subverted. Mizuki's real last name is Kondo, but since she appears with her Stage Name, there is no confusion.
- The Unseen: Kondo does not make any personal appearances in the show, but his name is always credited on-screen.

Tropes associated with Yuuki Kaji:
- Badass Adorable: Kaji acts pretty adorable for a grown man. He defeats Nakamura (and Sugita) in Savage Reign twice. And he's not even very familiar with fighting games.
- Handicapped Badass: When playing Savage Reign, Nakamura and Sugita play on one control as a handicap because Kaji often doesn't play fighting games. When he beats them, Nakamura tells Sugita to play with Kaji, so Kaji has the handicap. Kaji wins again.

Doesn't everyone?"Nakamura: "No... no one's really talked to us for that long..."Koshimizu: "That's not it! Maybe everyone just hates you?"Nakamura: "OI!"
- Casting Gag: Sugita frequently mentions Koshimizu's Guren MK-II.
- Chekhov's Gunman: In episode 9, Sugita is upset that AT-X censors his dirty jokes, but they air an anime where the main character gets stronger by sucking breasts (it's Seikon no Qwasar). Sanpei, who plays the said main character, appears in episode 11 and 12.

- Long Bus Trip: Nakamura and Sugita mention that Koshimizu tells them that she wants to come back everytime she meets one of them.

- The Load: In episode 42, the on-screen footage of them playing Trine: The Lost Relic shows Shimono constantly dying whenever they are trying to pass through obstacles. Despite his character being the knight and the strongest member of their party, Shimono never gets to fight an enemy. With Nakamura's mage being helpless and with no offensive power, and Sugita's thief having lower strength, it is Sugita who has to defeat the enemies all the time (and Nakamura's mage has to create platforms to jump and land on).
- Nightmare Fetishist: He is a fan of horror games.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: In-Universe example. Shimono mostly plays virgins, to the point that he's called "Forever-Virgin-Boy Seiyuu".
- Senpai Kohai: Technically the kohai to Nakamura and Sugita, who started one to two years earlier than Shimono, although they don't act as such, since all three of them are the same age.

- "It's gonna asplode!"note
Another kohai, who makes his appearance in episodes 21 and 22 (November 2012), the first guest after four episodes without any guest.
Tropes associated with Takuya Eguchi:
- Actually Pretty Funny: Initially, Nakamura mocks at him that Eguchi mispronounce "explode" as "asplode" (see Verbal Tic below), but then he admits it is actually pretty hilarious.

- In-Series Nickname: Egu.
- Large Ham: Nakamura even brings up which of them is louder: Eguchi or Kaji.
- Long Bus Trip: As of episode 50, where he and Koutarou Nishiyama are mentioned as potential future guests. Given that his last appearance was episode 22, it's been quite a long time since then.
- Megane: One of four guests who wears glasses.
- Phrase Catcher: Due to him being very loud when he is excited:Nakamura: "SHUT UP!"
- Senpai Kohai: The kohai to Sugita and Nakamura. Agency-wise, he's the kohai to Sakurai and the senpai to Nishiyama.

- Japanese Pop Music: She is a very successful J-Pop singer and she the most successful one among Seiyuus. Sugita and Nakamura make some jokes about how successful she is in comparison to them. Sugita even brings up her ROCKBOUND NEIGHBORS album during episode 25, which embarrasses her.
- Kneel Before Nana Mizuki: When she enters the scene, Sugita quickly steps aside, turns to face her, and bows very low. Afterwards, he stayed over an arm's length away until the next cut.
- Married to the Job: Despite appearing in this show is part of her job, she is so busy that it was really difficult for the staff to even invite her. Sugita and Nakamura even had to adjust their schedules to match hers — Sugita just came from Jump Festa 2013 to record these two episodes. Five years later, Hosoya is surprised to learn that she was in the show.
- One Steve Limit: Subverted. Her real last name was Kondonote like the narrator's, but since Mizuki appears with her Stage Name, there is no confusion.

- Near after the beginning of 30-sho Gaiden, he mentions that he acted in Tokusou Exceedraft. He played the child version of Bunzo Yazaki who would later grow up as Red Space Man.
- As mentioned in 30-sho Gaiden, he debuted with Satomi Arai in Caitlin's Way, where he played the Deuteragonist Griffen Lowe, although he didn't mention the name of his role, just that he's Caitlin's partner.
- Riku from Kingdom Hearts is indirectly mentioned in 30-sho Gaiden.
- Also mentioned in 30-sho Gaiden, he played another Deuteragonist, Akira from the anime Shin Megami Tensei DevilChildren: Light & Dark. Miyano called him "Dark", though.

Tropes associated with Mamoru Miyano:
- Achievements in Ignorance: In the can crushing mini-game of Tantoaru, he doesn't realize that he was winning the mini game as he thought he was the player at the top right corner instead of the bottom left.
- Actor Allusion: In-Universe. While playing as Mathilda from Anarchy Reigns, he screams "Trans-AM!" before unleashing a Ground Pound move.
- Adorkable: When it came to Street Fighter II, he acts like a little kid in his amazement at special moves, particularly the Spinning Piledriver.
- Affectionate Nickname: He has been called "Mi-chan" by Satomi Arai since they debuted together.
- Artistic License Statistics: Somehow manages to count more than 20 boxes when there are only 20 choices on the screen. Nakamura calls him out on this.
- Chekhov's Gunman: At the very start of Nii, Sugita and Nakamura joked about their new studio being Miyano's house, though they blow off the joke later on. They do the same joke again when he actually appears. After going along with the joke, at the very end of episode 30, he says it's not his house, though.
- Childhood Friend: It's revealed that he knew Miyu Irino in the 90s, even before Kingdom Hearts, but he neglected to write it in his chronology.
- Fanboy: In high school, he was a fan of the idol Ami Suzuki. He says that it was the around the time he started getting feelings for girls, and for the first time he bought CDs with his own money. He also bought Monster Rancher because Suzuki collaborated on the commercial.
- Former Child Star: A huge aversion. It's mentioned early in 30-sho Gaiden that he acted in Tokusou Exceedraft, a live-action Tokusatsu show that from February 1992 to January 1993. Miyano played the child version of the character Bunzo Yazaki in episode 7. He then went on to become one of the most successful seiyuus in the industry, with a flourishing music career to boot.

- The Hyena: Probably the biggest provider of the show.
- In-Series Nickname: Moma, Mamo-chan.
- Japanese Pop Music: Similar like Mizuki, Miyano is also a successful seiyuu musician. His single BREAK IT! is even promoted by Nakamura and Sugita.
- Kiai: When they play Mach Breakers: Numan Athletics 2, Miyano immitates Zetchou's screams again and again:"IIIIIIYAAAAH!!!"

- Long Bus Trip: Like Koshimizu, he insists to become a regular guest, but he hasn't reappeared since Gaiden yet.
- Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: One of the minigames of Tantoaru is to memorize the order of the animals and repeat it in 30 seconds. Cue Miyano saying what it is with both Sugita and Nakamura getting distracted from how hilarious Miyano is.
- Senpai Kohai: Entertainment industry-wise, he's the senpai to the both of them, debuting in 1990. Voice acting career-wise, he's the kohai to Sugita and debuted around the same time as Nakamura.

Tropes associated with Sumire Uesaka:
- The Alcoholic: We don't know how much she actually drinks alcohol, but she does drink, unlike our two hosts. Sugita and Nakamura (after asking Hiroki Yasumoto for recommendations) give her several bottles of alcoholic drinks as birthday and Christmas presents during episode 31, and she is fairly knowledgable about the presents.
- Foil: She can be seen as one to Yuuki. Both are very young seiyuus who were born in the early 90's (Uesaka is only three months older than Yuuki), but Yuuki is a Genki Girl, while Uesaka is one of the quietest guests, if not the quietest. Yuuki was rather treated as a child (especially since she wasn't in her legal age when she visited the show), while Uesaka is treated as an adult and she's even given a lot of alcohol as presents.
- Gamer Chick: She's been playing games since being in kindergarden.
- Phrase Catcher: Much to her embarrassment (and Yasumoto's annoyance):Sugita (imitating Yasumoto's voice): "Uesaka-san is cute!"
- Precision F-Strike: In episode 31, when they play The Outfoxies, she suddenly starts to repeat the word "kuso" (Japanese for "damn", "shit", etc.) over and over again. Nakamura even comments on that.Nakamura: "Uesaka-san, that's some pretty strong language, are you o—" (burst into laughter)
- Senpai Kohai: The kohai to Sugita and Nakamura.
- Zettai Ryouiki: She wears Grade B.

- He indirectly mentions his role as Accelrator from A Certain Magical Index in episode 35.
Tropes associated with Nobuhiko Okamoto:
- Button Mashing: When he and Nakamura play Street Fighter II Turbo, Okamoto keeps mashing the punch button to perform a continuous Hyakuretsu Harite with E. Honda against Nakamura's Ken Masters during the first and third round to win the match. It's unfair since E. Honda keeps moving forward while doing said move.
- Casting Gag: When he plays Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax in episode 35, he chooses Accelerator from A Certain Magical Index as an assist character.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He was mentioned a few times in season 1, and he eventually appears in Nii.
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: In episode 35, when he plays with Shizuo in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Okamoto attempts to use his assist character Accelerator, but the latter gets cancelled in the middle of the assist and shows up for only a split second. It's easy to miss, but Okamato doesn't."I was there for a split-second."
- In-Series Nickname:
- Nobu-kun or Nobu.
- Shikorin as said by Sugita, however, Okamoto stops him from mentioning this nickname.
- To know the story about Okamoto's embarrassing nickname, here.

- Lovable Sex Maniac:
- Mistaken for Pedophile: In episode 35, the quote above causes Sugita to (not seriously, though) think that Okamoto is a pedophile, but it's actually just a quote of RO-KYU-BU's Supporting Protagonist (who in the show itself is also constantly mistaken for a pedophile).
- Senpai Kohai: The kohai to Sugita and Nakamura.
A veteran seiyuu and the guest of episodes 37 and 38 (episodes 13 and 14 of Nii; November 2015) who then later appears in episode 53 and 54 (episode 29 and 30 of Nii; November 2017), but along with fellow guest Nishiyama, marking it the first time two male guests have appeared. In his reappearance, he's the third player and they get to celebrate his, Nishiyama's and Sugita's birthday (October 11).
- Shinpachi from Gintama was mentioned back in episode 15. Happens indirectly again when he shows up.
Tropes associated with Daisuke Sakaguchi:

- Lazy Bum: As you can see on her quote above, that's what she wants to do in her winter holidays.
- The Load: When they play Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, she spends most of the time repeatedly dying while not contributing anything major to the team.
- Never My Fault: When she drops a bomb in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris that hits all three of them, Nakamura wonders who dropped it. Horie jokingly points at Sugita who plays along with her.
- Nice Girl: She is the nicest and most kind guest so far and she does not tease the two hosts like most other guests. Sugita can't help but keep saying how nice she is.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: When they play Fujiko F Fujio Characters Dai-Shūgō! SF Dotabata Party!!, the footage shows Horie that she's not doing well during the various games at all, while Nakamura is shown doing it pretty well (but not as well as Sugita). However, Horie reaches second place for some reason, while Nakamura reaches the last place and his score is way behind hers and the COM's.

Tropes associated with Mikako Komatsu:
- And Your Reward Is Edible: After clearing the Retro Challenge Encounter, where she has to beat the first level of 5 out of 10 Famicom games within 30 minutes, her reward is a tablet of ebi sushi. And she can't handle the wasabi, unfortunately for her.

- In-Series Nickname: Is called "Mikakoshi-san" by them.

- Senpai Kohai: The kohai to Sugita and Nakamura.
A female kohai who appears alongside with her petit milady partner Aoi Yuuki in episode 47 and 48 (episode 23 and 24 of Nii; February 2017), while the latter makes a return to this show after her first visit since five years. They also appear in a special episode as a follow-up, 48-sho Gaiden (March 2017). She's the second player in these episodes, with Yuuki being the third player.
- Both, Kirino Kousaka from Ore Imo and Hotaru Shidare from Dagashi Kashi, are presented in 48-sho Gaiden.
Tropes associated with Ayana Taketatsu:
- Berserk Button: A mild one, but when Sugita nonchalantly says that he prefers Ayase, Taketatsu reacts very vocally. See her quote above.
