Ghost's Family & Friends

    The Engineer
"Goddamn it Engineer, you're supposed to be screenin' these calls, fer Christ's sake!"

"Aaaahraaaahyaaaah yaaaaaah!"

Ghost's loyal engineer, though he's not exactly good at his job. He fails to screen obvious troll calls and otherwise just mumbles incomprehensibly. However, he is very popular with the trolls.

  • A Day in the Limelight: He got one when Ghost finally got so mad he stormed out of the studio and left the microphone unattended, giving the trolls a chance to interact with him.
  • Alter-Ego Acting: It's an open secret that there is no Engineer, it's just Ghost doing the voice. But nobody says it, and everyone plays along.
  • Angrish: His first language.
  • Breakout Character: His takeovers of True Capitalist Radio, along with his humorous personality, have made Engineer a star among the trolls, many who tell Ghost Engineer needs to have his own show. Or Ghost's show.
  • Catchphrase: "Yes, sir", at least by virtue of being one of the only comprehensible things he says on a consistent basis.
  • The Dog Bites Back: A frequent topic for splices made has the Engineer have enough of Ghosts verbal abuse and attack him back, typically by killing him in the splice.
  • Dumb Muscle: Most impressions on him, given how many obvious trolls Ghost has to deal with thanks to him.
  • Elective Unintelligible: Most of his dialogue is incomprehensible mumbling, but he has been heard clearly saying "Yes, sir" - and "Fuck you!" - on multiple occasions. Some of his dialogue during the 2011 New Year's Eve Ghosties Award Show ("And the winner is...") is also comprehensible.
  • Heroic BSoD: Had one of these during one of his takeovers when KneeSlappington called up and played the Austin Vibrator sound for several minutes. The Engineer ended up crying near the end of the call, and KneeSlappington actually felt remorse for what he had done afterwards.
  • Hidden Depths: Of an unpleasant variety. When Ghost told him to play a song to honor Herman Cain, whom Ghost had decided to support... Engineer broke out the theme from Boss Nigger for the first time.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": He signs his autographs as "Engin Ear".
  • Hostile Show Takeover: He's successfully taken over the show several times, playing songs that Ghost hates, such as Nyan Cat and First of Da Month.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick:
    • He's a much better host than Ghost is, at least. Fanon tends to slightly exaggerate this.
    • Much to Ghost's dismay, the trolls exaggerated it into the Engineer being the talent.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: Ghost can understand the Engineer just fine. When needed, he'll sometimes repeat or explain Engineer's dialogue for our benefit.
  • Kayfabe: There's a strong chance that "the Engineer" is just Ghost leaning away from the microphone and doing a weird mumble, which is supported by the fact that they never seem to speak at the same time, but nobody really wants to know one way or the other.
  • Mistaken for Racist: Invoked by Ghost: "Are you a racist, Engineer?"
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: A very short and implicative one, but during the rebooted broadcasts, Ghost may get mad enough at the Engineer and commence a cans.wav with the sounds of the Engineer wailing over the smashing, implying that Ghost is either assaulting or startling the Engineer in a fit of rage. At the very least, many Shoutout names and splices have Ghost / accuse Ghost of violently attacking him, and vice-versa.
  • Pet the Dog: Whenever Ghost isn't in a rage, or being pitted against him in a popularity contest, Ghost tends to tell any Trolls trying to make fun of him to back off.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: The only intelligible English he seems able to speak (other than "yes sir") is "Fuck you!"
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: His voice sounds suspiciously similar to Ghost's previous switchboard operator, known as "Paul the Liberal", from back during his time hosting the True Conservative Radio, with the most notable difference being that people could actually understand Paul.
  • Springtime for Ghostler: Assuming that the Engineer is just a persona used by Ghost and that his "takeovers" are just Ghost punishing the trolls, the fact that the Engineer is better-liked as a host than Ghost himself could be considered this.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Despite his unfortunate near-inability to speak and his incompetence at his duties, he shows occasional moments of intelligence that you would find unlikely to come from him.
  • Ultimate Job Security: Despite being woefully incompetent in his moderating duties, taking over the show serval times without permission, and Ghost frequently threatening to fire him, he has somehow managed to hold on to his job.
  • The Unintelligible: Though Ghost claims he speaks perfectly fine.
  • Vocal Evolution: Over time, his voice became whinier and higher-pitched than in his first appearances.
  • You No Take Candle: Engineer can actually say a few words of coherent English amidst his garble.
    Mmmyeawasaawwrrr gaawwrrrr fuck you!

    Ghost's Wife 

Ghost's faithful (or not so faithful) wife and the owner of Templeton.

  • Brawn Hilda: Trolls like to make her out to be one of these.
  • The Cameo: She can be heard briefly talking when Ghost goes to check on what she is cooking for Christmas in the Christmas Special. Also heard in the Inner Circle chat sessions briefly and quietly.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She flew into a fit of rage after seeing Ghost with the cupcake lady which forced him to cancel Episode 498.
  • Cuckold: Trolls often accuse Ghost of giving his wife for other people to have sex with for his own pleasure, which Ghost always furiously denies.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Swerved while driving to avoid hitting a squirrel, causing $5000 in damages.
  • The Ghost: No Pun Intended. Other than her cameo in the Christmas Special and few appearences in chatroom sessions with Ghost, she hasn't made an appearance in the show, though she is mentioned fairly often.
  • Happily Married: Most of Ghost's comments towards her indicate that they live in a healthy, if traditional, marriage.
  • Housewife: Ghost loves to remind everyone that his wife "knows her place".

    Ghost's Granny
A pious woman who gave leftover food to their poor neighbors and never cursed in her life. Frequently brought up by trolls to annoy the crap out of Ghost.


Ghost's sister-in-law he mentions from time to time, usually when discussing Christmas. Caroline comes to visit Ghost every Christmas along with the rest of Ghost's extended family and brings with her a terrible-smelling fruitcake.

  • Lethal Chef: Her fruitcake is so pungent that it stinks up his whole condo.
  • Obnoxious In-Laws: Ghost makes it very clear that he absolutely hates Caroline and that she is one of the main reasons he hates Christmas so much.
  • Ship Tease: Trolls were quick to ship Caroline with Ghost and the episodes following the first mention of her by Ghost saw trolls make twitter names romancing Caroline and Ghost as well as playing the OutKast song Roses, a love song devoted to a woman named Caroline.

You're a shameless dog!
Ghost's wife's faithful dog, and one of the few creatures he feels genuine empathy for. Prone to electrical problems.
  • The Chew Toy: Much like other members of Ghost's family, a large amount of trolls have involved making fun of Templeton or playing obscene audio splices involving him.
  • Cousin Oliver: Justified; Ghost and his wife got Templeton sometime between the cancellation and the reboot, and since he's a dog, there's nothing Ghost can do to keep him from interrupting the broadcast.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Ghost isn't feeding him a treat fast enough? Bite his hand.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: He bites Ghost's hand during the August 18th, 2016 show. This was not too long after Ghost had said Templeton was one of his only friends.
  • Fat Bastard: Frequently interpreted by trolls as an obese dog, having gotten that way from being overfed treats and junk food by Ghost. The "bastard" part comes from everything he does that screws over Ghost.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Subject to a "shocking" amount of these, naturally.
  • Made of Iron: Managed to shock himself badly mid-broadcast and survive.
  • The Mole: People on /pol/ started to wonder if Tempelton was a Democratic National Committee spy after an incident during Episode 377 where Tempelton (once again) began chewing on Ghost's hand. After reading these these comments, Ghost asked Templeton if he was a DNC spy, only for Templeton to ignore him completely making Ghost even more suspicious of him
  • Morality Pet: Literal example to Ghost, who is audibly distraught when he nearly shocks himself to death on broadcast.
  • Road Apples: He took a dump on Ghost's white carpet right before Radio Graffiti during episode 415 much to his dismay. trolls noted that this was an early Christmas gift by Templeton. Has done this or almost done this several times since this incident, forcing Ghost to take a 5 minute break.
  • Shout-Out: He is named after a character from Charlotte's Web.
  • Spanner in the Works:
    • Managed to knock Ghost off the air for a substantial part of the broadcast during the aforementioned shocking.
    • He once more managed managed to force Ghost off the air in November 4th, when he started crying on air until Ghost gave him a dog biscuit.
  • Spoiled Brat: Ghost feels that his wife has been spoiling Templeton too much.

    Cupcake Lady 

One of Ghost's neighbors in San Antonio, Texas who likes to bake him delicious cupcakes.

Tropes pertaining to the Cupcake Lady.


    "Special Guests" 
Ghost has a roster of special guest callers who show up occasionally; in reality, they're simply heavily-stereotyped vocal impressions he'll perform to simulate a caller from a region such as China or India.

Tropes pertaining to the "special guest" callers.

  • Asian Speekee Engrish: Mr. Fortune Cookie's primary language.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: George Soros spends his time on the broadcast informing everyone how utterly evil he is.
  • Dirty Communists: Mr. Fortune Cookie "calls in" to sing the praises of China's communist party whenever Ghost insults it.
  • Dirty Old Man: Uncle Bernie really wants people to sit on his apple.
  • Evil Is Hammy: George Soros really emphasizes how everything in existence is his.
  • Evil Laugh: George Soros ends his speeches with a cackle.
  • The Fundamentalist: Mahmoud constantly demands Americans to pay their taxes, so that he can enact sharia law in Libya.
  • Greed: George Soros' defining trait:
    "Everything is mine! The world is mine!"
  • Jive Turkey: Tyrone, up in this motherfucka.
  • The Mafia: Ghost's newest special guest, Fat Tuna is an stereotypical Italian-American gangster who gives gambling advice.
  • National Stereotypes: About half of the guests are these, while the other half are various ethnic stereotypes.
  • Not Helping Your Case: No Ghost, doing a bunch of blatantly racist impersonations of various national and ethnic groups isn't going to stop people from calling you a racist.
  • Rain Dance: Ghost supposedly learned this from Chief Slapahoe
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Mr. Fortune Cookie punctuates nearly every sentence with "mathafacka".
  • South of the Border: Paco is the combination of pretty much every Mexican stereotype Ghost could think of.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Mahmoud was originally just a regular fighter in Libyan Civil War, however after the war he joined ISIS and rose to the rank of lieutenant commander.
  • The Unintelligible: The Guru's chanting.

    Ghost's Alter Egos
"Mmmmbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, mmmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, mmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhh."
"Goats," one of Ghost's fan-given alter egos

Nothing enrages Ghost more than hearing splices of himself saying things he never would. Naturally, his fans set about splicing together clips of his voice to create various characters with which to troll him.

Ghost's Allied Callers


Formerly one of the more loyal followers of Ghost (well, not really) who used to listen to the show fairly frequently. There was a short lived Memetic Mutation where everyone kept calling him a tree. He was eventually forced out of the show in one of the many doxxing incidents that followed Troll War III.

  • Implausible Deniability: Pffft, he can say what he likes, everyone knows he's a tree.
  • The Mole: He claims to be a serious caller, but a lot of evidence shows that it's more likely that he's just a troll that's trying to get on Ghost's good side.
  • Only Friend: Suspicious Tumbleweed.
  • Put on a Bus: Acknowledged Ghost's return, but hasn't called in nor communicated with anyone in the community.
  • Ship Tease: There seemed to be something going on between him and Suspicious Tumbleweed for a long time.

    Suspicious Tumbleweed 

Canadian caller and an avid fan of Ghost, and a mostly serious caller who has made a few troll calls.

  • A-Cup Angst: While we never hear her response to the Twitter name "Tumble_Flat_Chest", Ghost gets pissed off on her behalf.
  • Animesque: Resembles "a badass Advent Children ani-mee character", as described by Ghost in episode 189. Appropriately, Tumbleweed is a cosplayer.
  • Canada, Eh?: From Canada.
  • Ill Girl: She suffers from hemophilia.
  • Put on a Bus: Acknowledged Ghost's return in late 2015, but has only talked about the show once with the announcement that she's giving away her Capitalist Army flag she made.
  • Ship Tease: With Gasgara.
  • Wolverine Publicity: She's crossed over with multiple trolls, most hilariously Asho.

    Karasz Kun 

A young fan of the show that Ghost shows great affection for since 2012. Much to the dismay of the fans and trolls, any time KaraszKun called in or was given an Ask KaraszKun segment the show would grind to a halt and become a lot less interesting. Despite this however he managed to earn the respect of trolls in 2016 after he participated in trolling activities himself and was surpassed by much worse brown nosers in the show such as G and Teutonic Plague. Seemingly left the community after leaving the Inner Circle, however later caused tension with Ghost after a leaked DM conversation showed he wanted to kill Ghost over his stance on Net Neutrality.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: He suffers from High-Functioning Autism, something that trolls were quick to start picking on (despite many of them being openly autistic themselves).
  • At Least I Admit It: He earned significantly more respect from Ghost during his betrayal since he outright admitted what he had done without trying to hide it and as Ghost put it "take it like a man" in contrast to G who tried to deny everything he was accused of even when presented with overwhelming evidence.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: On the October 6th, 2016 broadcast, a tweet revealed that KaraszKun was drawing hentai. Needless to say, Ghost did not take it well AT ALL. Downplayed in that Ghost was quick to forgive Karasz since he was able to "take it like a man" unlike G.
    • During the November 17, 2016 broadcast, he completely went along with all the people wanting Ghost's wife's autograph, stating that he too wanted her autograph (along with an autograph by Ghost's grandmother), knowing perfectly well how much Ghost is upset by it. Needless to say, Ghost did not take his betrayal well.
    • On November 22nd, 2017, a leaked DM conversation was relayed to Ghost with Karasz unironically wishing for Ghost's death.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Said he straight up wanted to kill Ghost over his stance on Net Neutrality. To say Ghost didn't take it well is an understatement, with Ghost attempting to call his phone on the air.
  • Fourth-Wall Mail Slot: The "Ask KaraszKun" segment. Callers ask him questions.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • He had a serious meltdown after hearing about the YouTube Demonetization act and even threatened to kill himself during the show, forcing Ghost to break his character as Mr. Optimism.
    • After the October 6th, 2016 episode, he took to Twitter in complete denial over the fact that Ghost kicked him off the show when he was revealed to be drawing pornography. He then called again when Engineer took over on October 7th, only for Ghost to come back on and kick him off in disgust.
  • Morality Pet: Ghost frequently showcased a lot of affection for him, despite believing that autism and modern psychiatry are a bunch of pseudoscience used by people to get an easy way out of working life. This affection ended temporarily when his hentai art got revealed to Ghost.
    • Also became one for the trolls in the 2016 era after he managed to earn their respect.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Ghost frequently gave him way more airtime than most people think he deserved.
  • Sycophantic Servant: He agrees with just about everything that comes out of Ghost's mouth, however this stopped soon after he left the Inner Circle.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Ghost forgave him for the above-mentioned hentai incident, to the further dismay of fans and trolls.

    Trumping Capitalist 

An intellectual caller who often does investigative work on various subjects Ghost is discussing during the show with Capitalist Army. Occasionally joins in to troll Ghost during the show, though he is still considered autistic by many of the trolls on the show. Was a moderator of the ogcapitalistarmy Tinychat until its move to Discord in January 2017. His relationship with Ghost started to deteriorate in 2017 and he was first removed for a month from the Inner Circle after he was blamed for repeatedly annoying the members in there and later permabanned. He also got doxed shortly afterwards and had a major falling out with the trolls after he was blamed for leaking Discord conversations to one of the Inner Circle members, though he always denied being responsible for this. He later apologized for his behavior and left the TCR community and didn't make up with Ghost until early 2018.

  • Defector from Decadence: Following being kicked from the Inner Circle for annoying people, he now despises Ghost and the Inner Circle for the way they work and has gone his own way.
  • Descent into Addiction: Ghost believes this to be the reason behind his betrayal since one of his calls involved rolling Ghost autographs into joints, filling them with THC and then smoking them.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: He was part of the Yorkshire Capitalist's original betrayal call, though Ghost was quick to forgive him. He has since betrayed Ghost again several times.
  • Greedy Jew: Ghost was not happy to hear that Trumping had been more concerned by the $20 he owed to him than Ghost's own safety after he disappeared for a few days in April 26th, 2017.
  • Informed Judaism: He confirmed during Episode 371 to be of Jewish descent, which Ghost didn't seem to mind. Unsurprisingly this soon lead to the Twitter name GasChambers4Trumpin, among many other anti-semetic names.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Outside of TCR he runs a blog on wordpress under the name thegodofrage usually doing investigative work on various political scandals, which has actually received a decent amount of recognition outside of the show.
  • Killed Off for Real: Following drama between him and the Inner Circle, he at first worked with the trolls against them, until he finally apologized and quit the TCR community for good.
    • The Bus Came Back: He tried to apologize to Ghost several times on the show after the end of Ghost's break in late 2017, but Ghost wasn't willing to forgive him until early 2018.
  • The Smart Guy: Probably the smartest caller in the show since Tzeki
    • Not So Above It All: That being said, he has supported some of Ghost's crazier conspiracies like Pizzagate and did investigative work on them out of Ghost's request.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He has been compared a lot to Tzeki because of the intellectual nature of their calls and their rivalries with Teutonic Plague and Goofy Bone respectively.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He called out Ghost in Episode 495 for claiming that Neil deGrasse Tyson was not a real scientist. Two of them started arguing about the subject and Ghost would ultimately claim victory over their argument by failing to understand any any of the subjects Trumping was discussing or meaning of the word "theory" in science.

Short Bus Members

    In General 
Fan given name for a group of particularly sycophantic callers who have managed to earn the ire of trolls with their brown nosing, frequent calls and attempts to stop the trolling on the show.
  • Ascended Meme: After several dramas in the Inner Circle chatroom, Ghost came up with the idea of the "Inner Circle Short Bus", to remove the less desirable elements of the chatroom and mock them on the show.
  • Butt-Monkey: They are all just as susceptible to become targets of harassment by trolls as Ghost himself.
  • Dysfunction Junction: No Pun Intended, but all of them with the exception of Goofy seem to be suffering from some sort of neurological disease and were hiding some sort of a dark secret from Ghost. Ghost also points out that a lot of them are under the age of 20.
  • Spiritual Predecessor: Goofy predates the term by good 5 years but he is usually considered a member of the Short Bus as he had a similar sycophantic attitude towards Ghost and met a similar end with him as did many other members of the Short Bus.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Above all the reason that the trolls hate Short Bus Members is that they can take huge amounts of time from the broadcast (often as much as 20 minutes) if they happen to call Ghost. This can get especially annoying for the trolls if the said calls happen during Radio Graffiti.
  • Sycophantic Servant: They have a tendency to blindly agree with all of Ghost's views.

    Goofy Bone
Fuck fuck fuck.
"Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck"
Goofy_Bone, most of the time

One of Ghost's only loyal supporters in 2011, until he got sick of him. Goofy_Bone also has his fair share of trolls hounding him, since his rather idiotic outbursts and laughable gangsta rap videos are easy material, Though he has fallen into obscurity during Ghost's absence as older listeners don't find him as entertaining as Ghost and newer viewers are not familiar with him. He has also been running his own BTR show called ONE 86 Point DUCE since 2009.

  • Cluster F-Bomb: Curses all the time, as his quote can attest.
  • Defector from Decadence: Ghost was an asshole to him too, so Goofy_Bone turned tail on him.
  • Jerkass: Moreso he's just an obnoxious prick, not a violent-tempered jerk like Ghost.
  • The Mockbuster: He started to heavily copy Ghost's show on his own broadcasts in the fall of 2011 in an attempt to attract some of Ghost's listener base into his show with things such as "Bean and Cheese Graffiti" and a very poor Engineer soundboard which was later replaced by an equally poor Chewbacca soundboard in a desperate attempt to be a little more original.
  • Out of Focus: As of 2017 he's still around after all these years and running ONE 86 Point DUCE believe it or not, but he has fallen into obscurity and most people have just stopped caring since he isn't nearly as entertaining as Ghost and newer listeners are not familiar with him.
  • Put on a Bus: He hasn't called the show very often since people started trolling HIS radio show, and his flame war with Tzeki.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Tzeki's blue.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He believes he's a great rapper, for one.
  • Token Minority: He's Mexican, and as such is one of the two callers (the other being Asho) referred to as 'Bean and Cheese' by Ghost.

    Teutonic Plague
A caller who frequently calls in following Ghost's 2016 return. His attitude, long and frequent calls, and tendency to agree with everything that comes out of Ghost's mouth have managed to gather a lot of ire towards him from the trolls. As of October 28 2016, Teutonic Plague was banned from the show after his controversial statements on animal abuse. He then cemented being banned by admitting to being a Brony after all this time.
  • Et Tu, Brute?:
    • On April 21, 2016, Teutonic Plague called in and directed a Texas wildfire joke at Ghost, pissing him off.
    • Taken Up to Eleven on October 3rd, 2016, when Teutonic Plague joined others in the Inner Circle in endorsing the Engineer in the True Capitalist Radio Civil War.
    • Taken even further when after a fierce campaign to have Teutonic Plague banned over animal abuse comments, during Teutonic's goodbye, he admitted to Ghost he's a Brony, sending Ghost into a downward spiral of rage.
  • Hot-Blooded: He tends to get extremely angry during his calls, often directing his rage towards liberals and wishing to see them dead, something that even Ghost objects to.
  • Kick the Dog: As noted above, he got extremely angry about Templeton biting Ghost's hand, and stated several times during the broadcast that if a pet ever did that to him, he would kill the dog without hesitation. Plague's demented ranting alienated him from the rest of the inner-circle (although they had never liked him that much to begin with) and even managed to disturb Ghost.
  • Lesser of Two Evils: As much as he is hated by the community, he is still considered a better alternative to G.
  • The Mole: He has claimed since the betrayal that his brown nosing was all just an act and that he was just a troll in disguise all along. Wether this is actually true or just a case of Parody Retcon is still up to debate though.
  • Put on a Short Bus: Permanently banned from the show after a campaign from various fans of the show to have him banned.
  • The Friend No One Likes: According to a leaked DM from Ghost, the only reason he kept giving Plague airtime was because he had a knack to "embarrass himself while thinking he's actually accomplishing something", despite his outward appearance of liking Plague.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He had initially a much more calm demanor, but after gaining the hatred of trolls and supposedly getting his account hacked he became much more aggressive and loud.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Besides being similar to KaraszKun, Plague has been compared to Goofy Bone as they are both loud, obnoxious blowhards who suck up to Ghost to an embarrassing degree.

    Masked Pony
A young fan with a speech impediment who got some recognition and special treatment by Ghost as of the 2016 broadcast reboot, in the same vein as KaraszKun. This ended when his fetish got revealed to Ghost by the man himself.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Managed to turn himself into one of these towards Ghost after he revealed his fetish to him. Ghost, who had previously defended him against insults, instantly turned on him and thraw quite a huge hissyfit of insults at him.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Nobody knows what disorder he has, but MaskedPony himself has mentioned neurofibromatosis.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: He tends to talk like this.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Ghost did not take the revelation of him writing My Little Pony diaper fanfiction well at all.
  • He's Back: Returned to troll Ghost in an intro splice with Twilie Atkins.
  • Hidden Depths: Ghost really didn't take well to finding out about MaskedPony's diaper fetish that he wrote into his My Little Pony fanfictions.
  • Humiliation Conga: Not only was his fetish revealed to everyone, he was pretty much completely humiliated in the broadcast by Ghost.
    • Still ongoing, with Ghost mocking him nearly every week.
  • Medal of Dishonor: "Won" the award for Worst TCR Character in the 2016 Ghosties.
  • Morality Pet: To Ghost, who gave him a similar treatment to KaraszKun until his fetish got revealed.
  • Orwellian Editor: Right after learning that trolls knew about his fan fics, he quickly deleted all his works in FiMFiction, but the trolls saw this coming and had already archived his work.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Considering the general behavior of TCR fandom, it's a really bad idea to announce everyone during the show that you are writing fan-fiction, especially considering its content. It didn't take too long after the show for the trolls to find his FiMFiction account and his works.

Another brown-noser who started calling the show with Ghost's 2016 return. G quickly became even more hated than Teutonic Plague among the trolls because of his repeated calls and a lack of personality (something that Teutonic has at the very least) that would normally have Ghost throw him off the air if it were any other caller. His relationship with Ghost has been rocky, getting banned and un-banned from the show following various incidents. He is currently banned from the show after an incident where he faked a suicide message on Twitter and according to Ghost he is going to stay banned until he is able to "mature up". G once again made his return during Episode 417 after Ghost stated that all the bad blood between them was in the past, however he was kicked from the Inner Circle chatroom again for coming in at an inconvenient time.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: G confirming he liked anime and was a Tub Guy ripoff. To say that Ghost was unhappy with G after this would be putting it lightly. Cranked up to 11 when G lied about threatening to kill himself.
  • Implausible Deniability: Bordering on Believing Their Own Lies, he kept claiming that the entire suicide hoax was caused by a typo even though Tub Guy had overwhelming evidence to the contrary, causing many of the people still willing to hear him out to turn on him.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Much to everyone's surprise, he managed to cause cans.wav and even made Ghost Rage Quit the show by mentioning the Double Dipping Incident to him during the show in a neutral light.
  • Driven to Suicide: Subverted. G faked threats of suicide after Ghost banned him from the show. Something Ghost himself found sickening.
  • Put on a Short Bus: Twice, first after the Undertale fiasco, second after his suicide hoax, he returned after both fiascos though.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: G is a very bland person.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Ghost forgave him after he kept his head down for a few months.
    • Averted when he was apparently randomly kicked from the Inner Circle again.

    Raiden Snake 
A serious caller from the UK who has come to prominence following the 2016 return. While originally one of the more tolerated serious callers, he became heavily targeted by the troll community following the departure of Masked Pony, G, and Teutonic Plague and ultimately left the show due to constant harassment.
  • Berserk Button: He really doesn't like being called Australian or a "fake brit" because of his accent.
  • Disney Death: Seemed to quit both Twitter and the Inner Circle following drama on the April 15 Saturday Night Troll Show, but came back the next day citing his supposed disappearance was just manipulation by trolls.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Typically gives this reaction toward the trolls' antics. Of particular note was his genuine upset at the trolls following the March 2017 Westminster Attack.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Ghost did not react well when he read a raunchy parody of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas on the Christmas Eve 2016 broadcast. Ultimately downplayed, however, as he almost immediately apologized to Ghost and quickly went back to brown-nosing.
    • Averted in the end, as he was the only member of the Short Bus crew who didn't have a major falling out with Ghost.
  • Nice Guy: Perhaps the nicest of the Short Bus members... provided the trolls aren't actively antagonizing him.
  • Rage Quit: His Twitter account had the reputation of getting deleted all the time. While he claimed this was because of hackers and Twitter management wanting to shut him down, most trolls believed that he was just rage quitting Twitter over and over again since these deletions often coincide with some Twitter spat he's having at the time.
    • In the end, he left the community for good following bashings by trolls and drama in the Inner Circle.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Most British listeners believe that his accent isn't British at all as he claims, instead claiming that his accent is actually Australian though Raiden himself furiosly denies this.


How well does it match the trope?
