The Character Sheet for Tube Clash


    open/close all folders 

Tropes that apply to all of the Clashers:

  • Back for the Finale: All of the previously eliminated Clashers reappear alongside the last survivors in the season finale.
  • Catchphrase: Each Clasher has at least one. Among the most notable are Taddl's "Richtig nice!" ("Totally rad!"), Stegi's uttering of "So lächerlich..." ("So laughable...") and HandOfBlood's "In dem Sinne" (cannot be translated properly, "That's the spirit" comes closest to it's meaning).
  • Advertisement:
  • Death Is Cheap: In Season 1, no eliminated Clasher stays dead, because no one ever truly dies. Justified, since they're based on real life Youtubers, who are all still active. Averted in Season 2, where the Clashers actually do die, but are revived in the ending.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Each Clasher gets one. Examples include live wire Melina breaking into a motivational song while struggling inside the Nether with Stegi, Julien Bam saving the day with a Sherlock Scan in Episode 1 of Season 2 and especially JuliensBlog's entrance in Season 1.
  • Large Ham: Being parodistic versions of real Youtubers, all the Clashers tend to overact and talk in an exaggerated manner, some more than others.
  • Running Gag: Each of the Clashers has several of these, taken from their real-life counterparts. Examples include Gronkh frequently getting lost, Julien swearing all the time, Coldmirror making Harry Potter references etc.
  • Advertisement:
  • Took a Level in Badass: All of the Clashers. Since none of them are fighters in real life, this goes without saying.

    Chan 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bildschirmfotouaz4jrf126.png
"Ich kenne jedes verdammt nochmal jedes Concept-Art zu Attack on Titan auswendig." ("I have memorized every goddamn concept art of Attack on Titan.")
  • Adorkable : Whenever not in his Nega-Chan form, he is constantly trying to awkwardly engage in conversation, mostly about anime, which makes him this.
  • Battlecry: Lets out a rather impressive one before he chips off a part of the Titan's neck, causing it to collapse and die.
  • Break the Cutie: He becomes a sobbing wreck after Kelly dies.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: Seems to be this for LeFloid at first, until his display of his true fighting capabilities, see below.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite usually behaving like a bumbling, overly paranoid and hysterical weakling, he plays this trope straight in Episode 2: He partially transforms himself to his Nega-Chan self, then uses only a halberd and Viktor's string of bratwursts to slay the Titan, who had kidnapped Kelly and Julien. All complete with Awesome Music.
  • Drama Queen: Especially in the opening scene. He is usually the first to panic in any given situation, making his heroic rescue of Kelly all the more surprising.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Nega-Chan sounds several times deeper than his goofy counterpart.
  • Face–Monster Turn: After being abducted and brainwashed by the Master in Episode 4, he transforms into his Nega-Chan self permanently, causing him to fight against his former allies.
  • Genre Savvy: Due to being a huge anime fan, he immediately comes up with a plan to kill the Titan that kidnapped Kelly and Julien, even knowing his only weakspot, the back of it's neck.
  • Heroic BSoD: Following Kelly's death, he is seen in front of her grave, crying, not moving nor ceasing to sob until the Master abducts him out of nowhere.
  • I Told You So: Yells this out loud while everyone runs away from the first Titan they spot.
  • Lured into a Trap: He and Flo are made to believe that Coldmirror is hurt and needs their help. Turns out it is an ambush set up by Clash B.
  • Properly Paranoid: He warns LeFloid about the possibility of Titan's roaming the deserted island they're trapped on. The latter laughs it off. Turns out, Chan was right.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: He is abducted immediately following Kelly's death, making him the only Clasher to be eliminated at the very beginning of an episode. Even though the aforementioned death can also be considered as invoking this trope, the immediate disappearance of Chan can be viewed as an extension to it.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: When not engaging in combat, he behaves like a bumbling, shy geek.
  • The Power of Friendship: Averted. At first, it seems like Kelly is able to transform him back into his good self simply by talking about their friendship and how much they miss him. That is, until Manu makes a snarky remark, causing Chan to snap back to Nega-Chan. He is then permanently turned good by a magic spell.

    Flo aka LeFloid  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lol_5.png
"Glaubt Ihr nicht, dass der Witz ein kliiiitzekleines bischen ausgelutscht ist?" ("Don't you think that gag is a tiiiiiny bit overused?")
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Played completely straight.
  • Badass Bookworm: Becomes this for a short duration during Episode 6, managing to fight hordes and hordes of undead Wookies all by himself.
  • BFS: His Weapon of Choice is this.
  • Big "NO!": Does this after Taddl tells him that he has once again fallen for a satire website on his search for shocking information. Made funnier by the fact that Flo is a zombie by now. The scene is alluding to an incident where Flo accidentally spread facts from a fake article during one of his LeNews videos.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: During his initial death scene, he is suddenly and without warning sliced in half by a Zombie Wookie, a recurring running gag throughout the season. He then makes his surroundings freeze, now only possessing his upper body half and being mid-air, calling the creators of the series out for overusing the gag. Time is then rewinded and his death scene plays out in a new, unique way.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The only Clasher who fits this trope more than him is Manu from Clash B.
  • Decoy Protagonist: He is the first Clasher to be shown on-Screen, even before the opening montage and arguably gets the most amount of screen time throughout the first episodes. However, he barely lasts until halfway through the first season.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: When he first meet Chan, the latter panicks and starts to uncontrollably ramble about the dangers of the island, causing Flo to become annoyed and slap him across the face to make him calm down.
  • One-Man Army: Becomes this during Episode 6, fighting off a swarm of Zombie Wookies.
  • Only Sane Man: Becomes this for Clash A: Following Kelly's death, Viktor goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge, Chan turns into a sobbing wreck and Taddl, being Taddl, barely even notes what has transpired, while Flo is the only arguing to resolve things peacefully.
  • Killed Offscreen: Kind of. He does get tackled and bitten by a Zombie Wookie offscreen, but he is still around after this, although as a zombie.
  • Lured into a Trap: He and Chan are made to believe that Coldmirror is hurt and needs their help. Turns out it is an ambush set up by Clash B.
  • Nice Hat: Never takes off his cap.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: After being bitten by a Zombie Wookie, he becomes a mindless, crosseyed shell, only capable of uttering single words while feeding on bats instead of human flesh.
  • The Heart: Tries to talk Viktor out of the latter's plan to take revenge and along Dr. Allwissend helps both Clashes team up in Episode 5.
  • The Smart Guy: Definitely is this for Clash A. From the very start, he tries to logically assess how they all ended up in the situation they're in and always puts reason before violence or acts of rashness. This is the main reason why he gets along well with Clash B's smart guy, Dr. Allwissend.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After having been little more than the group's voice of reason for several episodes, he plays this trope straight in Episode 6: He manages to hold off the Zombie Wookie hordes all by himself, slicing them in half with a giant sword while riding on a skateboard. He still dies though.
  • Weapon of Choice: Like every other Clasher, he has one too: His is a giant sword bearing his full name on the blade, the blade itself is larger than his own torso. And he still wields it with one hand.

    Kelly aka MissVlog  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/13b6e6ba70edc322.jpg
"Sag mal, hast du noch nie einen Disney-Film gesehen?" ("Say, have you never seen a Disney-Movie before?")
  • Berserk Button: Kind of. While she never really goes berserk, an offhand Accidental Innuendo by Taddl causes her to be at least temporarily disgusted with him, which is the only time in the entire season where she shows traces of anger.
  • Break the Cutie: She is forced to engage in a death battle with Coldmirror during Episode 3 and unsuccessfully tries to convince her opponent to stop fighting. She then almost kills Coldmirror during an moment of O.O.C. Is Serious Business, before finally backing down and being killed as a result.
  • Cartwright Curse: Just after we learn of Viktor's crush on her, she dies at the hands of Coldmirror.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: Subverted. While at first, it looks like she will lose her innocence by finishing off Coldmirror during their duel, she eventually can't bring herself to do it, resulting in Coldmirror gaining the upper hand and killing her instead.
  • Damsel in Distress: Played straight in Episode 2 when she has to be saved from a Titan who kidnapped her, reminiscent of King Kong.
  • Darker and Edgier: Her death is far more hard hitting and more serious in tone than the one of Julien, leaving several characters devastated and angry.
  • Faking the Dead: Unbeknownst to even Kelly herself, Coldmirror had only put a spell on her that caused her to go into a stasis. Later, Coldmirror casts another spell that reverses the effect of the first spell, making both Kelly and Viktor come back to life.
  • Sacrificial Lion: After receiving a good amount of characterisation and being shown to be generally well liked by all the Clashers, she is the first to die as a direct result of another Clasher's attack. Her death has much bigger consequences than the death of Julien and serves as a reminder that TubeClash is no complete laughing matter.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: This is most likely what her relationship with Viktor will look like.
  • The Chick: Only female Clasher of Clash A. Also a lot more feminine than the only female of Clash B, Coldmirror.
  • The Cutie: Definitely.
  • The Ditz: Mostly. While she is not really all that stupid, she displays a large amount of naivete, usually being oblivious to her surroundings, such as when she is the only one not running away from an approaching Titan, instead waving at him. This is more due to her having a generally positive attitude towards everything, resulting in her happy go lucky way of reacting to danger.
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: Due to her being partly Czech, she speaks German with an accent, causing her R's to sound this way.
  • Weapon of Choice: Like every other Clasher, she has one too: A pink, flashy scythe/helbard, which she only uses in her duel against Coldmirror.

    Taddl 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/taddl.jpg
"Na, Ihr Nudeln?" ("Well, you noodles?")
  • Accidental Innuendo: Makes an offhand remark to his friend Manu, which Kelly overhears. She misinterprets it and is temporarily disgusted by him.
  • Badass Baritone: While his way of talking isn't all that badass itself, his voice is still deep enough to qualify for this. Him being able to communicate with Wookies due to his voice adds to this.
  • Chekhov's Gag: His relaxed and casual attitude is brought up several times by his teammates. Later, it turns out to be the key to defeating the Hater-Bot.
  • Chick Magnet: In and Out of Universe. Even the childishly innocent Kelly is immediately excited to be in one team with him, though that might only be her being nice to him in general.
  • Gag Boobs: After receiving the Master-Controller, a tool which can be used to form reality as one pleases, Manu reveals in the epilogue that he accidentally drew a rather impressive pair of jugs on Taddl, much to the latter's chagrin.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Manu aka GermanLetsPlay. Sometimes even qualifies as Homo Erotic Subtext.
  • Mellow Fellow: Almost never changes his relaxed tone of voice and wears a permanent content expression on his face. This is also the reason why the Hater-Bot's ammo, namely hate comments, doesn't harm him in the slightest. He is too chill to care.
  • Ship Tease: With Manu aka GLP. The ship even has its own name, "GLPaddl" , and existed well before Tube Clash did. Needless to say, this is one of the main reasons why he's very popular with the female fans of the series.
  • Surfer Dude: His tone when talking, choice of words and ever chilled attitude makes him the German equivalent of this trope. Also qualifies as The Stoner minus the drugs.
  • Transformation Sequence: Goes through one alongside Viktor in preparation for an upcoming battle. Unlike the latter however, he barely changes all that much, save for a headband appearing on his forehead and warpaint on his cheeks.
  • Undying Loyalty: To his best friend Manu. They both refuse to fight each other in the penultimate episode, instead preferring to delete themselves and die together, defying the Master in the process. Like everyone else, they get better.
  • Verbal Tic: Starts almost every sentence with "Aaaaalter..." ("Duuuuude..."). Also loves to insert "Richtig nice!" ("Totally rad!") into his sentences.
  • Weapon of Choice: Like every other Clasher, he has one too: A cannon that shoots solid noodles. This is a reference to his habit to call his subscribers "noodles".

     Viktor aka Ali aka iBlali  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_nauzub7pt21t8xr89o1_1280.png
"Der Spaß ist vorbei. Jetzt herrscht Krieg." ("Fun time's over. The war has just started.")
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Played with. Just when it looked like he was going to develop into an antagonist out of grief over his crush's death, he was surprisingly killed off by the true Hidden Villain Coldmirror. He gets better though.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves both Flo and Chan from the enemy Clash in the very first episode, using his bratwurst string as a rope to literally swing by and pick the two up, all complete with a Tarzan yell.
  • Cartwright Curse: His love interest dies shortly after he realizes he has a crush on her.
  • Crush Blush: Unsuccessfully tries to hide his crush on Kelly from LeFloid when the latter remarks that he appears to have taken quite a liking to her, causing Viktor to blush.
  • Happily Ever After: He and Kelly are shown to have become a couple in the epilogue. Subverted in season 2.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Goes through one when Coldmirror reveals to him that Kelly never died and she needs him to play along with her plan as well so she can get close to the Master. Viktor's hatred immediately vanishes and he joins Coldmirror's side.
  • Insult Backfire: During his duel with Coldmirror, he uses trash talk to lower her morale, saying she almost fights like a man. She returns the "compliment" by pointing out she was about to say the same thing about him. Ouch.
  • Faking the Dead: Agrees to play along with Coldmirror's Batman Gambit by having her seemingly kill him, when in reality, she only used a spell on him that made him fall into a stasis.
  • Large Ham: Especially when being Dönerbuden-Ali.
  • No In Door Voice: As Dönerbuden-Ali.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Played straight after episode 3, when Kelly's death causes him to become blind with hatred for Clash B, culminating in him attempting to murder Coldmirror, who had been forced to kill Kelly in a duel. Subverted in a flashback in episode 8, when it turns out that Coldmirror had been able to convince him to stand down and go along with her plan to make it look like she killed him, all of which was part of her Batman Gambit to defeat the Master.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He vows to eliminate the whole Clash B out of anger over Kelly's death. He falls before coming even close to achieving this.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: This is most likely what his relationship with Kelly will look like.
  • This Means War!: Says this out loud after Kelly is killed by Coldmirror.
  • Transformation Sequence: Goes through one alongside Taddl, transforming him into Doenerbuden-Ali.
  • Vine Swing: The way he saves Flo and Chan in the first episode, even adding the Tarzan yell.
  • Weapon of Choice: Wields a string of bratwurts in a style reminiscent of a Nanchaku. This is due to a running gag on his Youtube channel, namely subscribers asking him whether or not he likes bratwurst over and over again in the comments.

Clash B

    Coldmirror aka Kaddi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaddi.png
"Habt Ihr wirklich gedacht ich wär nur so ein armseliges Waschweib?" ("Did you really think I was just some pathetic bimbo?")
  • Action Girl: Absolutely. Out of all the Clashers, she engages in battle the most and often enjoys it.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": When Playing Sick during her first scene in order to set a trap for LeFloid and Chan, she acts rather... unconvincing to say the least. Flo and Chan still fall for it.
  • Batman Gambit: Almost all of her actions prior to Episode 8 are this: When fighting Kelly, she makes sure to put a spell on her that makes her seem dead, but only puts her into a stasis, so the Master won't get suspicious. Later, she does the same thing to Viktor and goes on to pretend being the Master, predicting that the real Master will want to take her under his wings. In doing so and becoming his Dragon, she manages to get herself into a position of power, allowing her to make sure that none of the Clashers get Killed Off for Real, but only appear to be dead. Also counts as Impersonation Gambit since she pretended to be the real Master for a while.
  • Determinator: For Season 1, see her Batman Gambit.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: When she lies dying to her former allies feet in Episode 8, she manages to cast a spell causing all attendees to experience a flashback, detailing her entire Batman Gambit. She doesn't stay dead for long though, as she is "revived" alongside everyone else in the penultimate episode.
  • Good All Along: As Episode 8 reveals, [[Spoiler:all the things she did were part of her plan to make sure everyone would make it out alive.]]
  • Hidden Depths: At first, she appears to be nothing more than an Action Girl with a rather crude sense of humor. When she is revealed to be a Hidden Villain, her onscreen-time is largely reduced and barely any motive given. Only during The Reveal do we see her true motivations and sentiments, especially her deep concern for the safety of her friends, which she had barely shown up to that point.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Kind of. Unlike most of the other Clashers, she not only frequently references her work on Youtube, but even gains the ability to perform powerful magic due to her connection to the Harry Potter franchise
  • Non-Fatal Explosions: She causes one to go off in her face during the beginning of Episode 3, showing no signs of being harmed or hurt whatsoever afterwards. She even jokes about how she blew up stuff Seamus Finnigan style.
  • Odd Friendship: Forms one of these with Manu, both possessing rather strange and distinct personalities and senses of humor. They quickly turn into True Companions though, especially after Coldmirror shows Manu what she built for him: A grave for his deceased pet Wookie. Also counts as Heartwarming.
  • Playing Sick: Her very first scene of the season is her feigning an injury to lure Flo and Chan towards her. This turns out to be a trap, set by her and her fellow Clashers in order to overpower the other two.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: Frequently references Harry Potter, even wielding a wand as her Weapon of Choice. This is due to her most famous work on Youtube, her comedy dub Abridged Series of the Harry Potter movies.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: When all of the Clashers unite to face off with the Master in the Season 1 finale, she drops this one:
    (to the Master:) "If you want your epic final battle all that bad, then you better be part of it!"
  • Slasher Smile: Sports one when the trap she and her teammates set is revealed during her first scene.
  • The Hero: Ultimately turns out to be this.
  • The Reveal: Gets several of these: The first one happens in Episode 5, when she reveals herself to be the real Master after having killed Viktor in combat, even displaying Glowing Eyes of Doom. She continues to seemingly be the Big Bad until Episode 8, where it is revealed that she is not the Master but only The Dragon, serving the real Master in order to be spared by him. Then in the same episode, the real reveal takes place: During a flashback sequence, it is shown that all of her seemingly evil actions have only been part of her Batman Gambit to get the Master to make her his second-in-command, so she could make sure that none of the Clashers got Killed Off for Real.
  • Toilet Humor: Some of her jokes qualify as this.
  • Tomboy : Especially compared to the only other female Clasher Kelly. None of her behaviour indicates her being a girl, making it entirely possible to mistake her for a man at first glance. It doesn't help that she has a rather deep voice as well.
  • Weapon of Choice: Being a Harry Potter aficionado, her weapon is a magic wand.
  • Wham Shot: The beginning of Episode 8, when she is seen kneeling in front of the Master, revealing she is not the Big Bad. Her killing Viktor out of nowhere also counts.
  • Wham Episode: Episode 8. Almost the entire episode is dedicated to showcase her true intentions and actions throughout the season, all via flashback.

    Dr. Allwissend 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/doktor_intro.PNG
"Guten Tag, Nichtswissende!" ("Hello, all of you uninformed!"
  • Cool Old Guy: Is this to an extent.
  • Cool Pet: His stuffed animal monkey after being brought to life by Coldmirror's magic. Especially later, when he fights the Master alongside the reformed Zombie Wookies.
  • Deadpan Snarker: To a much lesser extent than Manu or Flo, but he still has a few notable moments. The scene where he reacts to Julien's "death" with a simple "I think we just found him" comes to mind.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Only addressed as "The Doctor" by all the other Clashers.
  • I Wish It Were Real: As a flashback reveals, his biggest wish has always been seeing his stuffed animal, a monkey, come to life. Coldmirror grants it to him.
  • Knew It All Along: When Coldmirror's Batman Gambit is revealed, he claims to have known about it all along. Nobody believes him.
  • Meaningful Name: His name sums up his entire personality.
  • Rambling Old Man Monologue: Whenever he loses himself in one of his neverending ramblings about the solution to an often trivial task, he seems to fit this trope. He also is the oldest one out of all the Clashers and often talks and sounds like someone well over 70.
  • Non-Action Guy: Never once engages in combat during the entire run of the season. Be reminded that this series is titled TubeClash.
  • Only Sane Man: Seems to be this for Clash B on several occasions, since Gronkh is too easily distracted, Coldmirror temporarily turns into a mad villain, Julien is completely and utterly incapable of working with others and Manu is too much of a manchild to be of real help most of the time. He gets along well with LeFloid due to this.
  • Punny Name: His name translates to "Dr. Omniscient". Fitting, since his Youtube videos consist of him answering questions in a humorous manner, all while maintaining his all-knowing persona.
  • Precision F-Strike: A rather mild example, but when he is captured and imprisoned by Coldmirror and Nega-Chan, he goes "Ach, Kacke!" (Ah, crap!), being the first and only time he swears during the series.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Being a doctor and the most intelligent member of the Clash, it is a given that everyone respects his advice.
  • Sherlock Scan: Is prone to do this even during the least convenient of times.
  • The Professor: In every way.
  • The Smart Guy: Is this for Clash B, especially compared to everyone else on his team. Coldmirror eventually turns out to be equally brilliant.
  • Weapon of Choice: He is the only Clasher to not possess one. Justified, since he is the Non-Action Guy and only needs his wit to survive. Then again, his pet monkey might qualify as a weapon.

    Gronkh 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gronkh_intro.PNG
"Hallöchen Popöchen!" ("Why, hello there!")
  • Badass Beard: One of his trademarks.
  • Cool Old Guy: He is not as old as his fellow Clasher Dr. Allwissend, but the way he acts and speaks make him seem much more like a person well over 50. He also serves as Clash B's leader, demonstrating competence and leadership (at least most of the time), qualifying him for this trope.
  • Cutaway Gag: While he is wandering the island alone, he wonders what became of his real-life friend Sarazar, a fellow Youtuber, believing his friend to be completely lost and devastated without his guidance. The scene cuts away to reveal Sarazar basking in his newfound fame with two well endowed ladies next to him, all thanks to Gronkh's absence from the Youtube world.
  • Damsel in Distress: Becomes this for one episode, when the Zombie Wookies kidnap him and try to sacrifice him to the Titan Frikadella Schlömpel.
  • Danger Deadpan: Despite being about to be eaten alive by the Titan version of the Sim Frikadella Schlömpel, he doesn't flip out, instead making calm if worried comments about the situation he's in.
  • Nice Guy: He is always in good spirits and never swears once during the entire run of the series. He also volunteers to find Manu a new pet Wookie, after his last one got killed (though Gronkh is the one responsible for that.)
  • Non-Action Guy: He spends very little time actually fighting and prefers to solve situations by talking, despite always carrying a sword with him.
  • No Sense of Direction: Referencing his Minecraft Let's Play, where he frequently got lost while wandering forests or caves, he gets lost once again while looking for a replacement pet for Manu, eventually ending up on the wrong side of the island.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His age and vast experience with survival in the wild, being a Minecraft veteran, make him the designated and respected leader of the Group. This still doesn't stop him from making a few bad calls, though.
  • Shoot the Messenger: In a way. He kills the Wookie which Taddl used to send a message to his friend Manu, believing it to be dangerous.
  • Slasher Smile: Demonstrates one during his very first scene, as he and his former Clashers ambush Flo and Chan. He even draws a finger across his neck, the only time during the entire series where he shows any sign of malice. All this qualifies as O.O.C. Is Serious Business.
  • The Leader: Assumes this role the first few episodes. Not always successfully.
  • The Load: Alternates between this and The Leader: Though he assembles his Clash and works out a plan to have them survive together, he also manages to accidentally kill Manu's pet Wookie, gets himself captured by the ressurected zombie of the aforementioned Wookie and then spend an entire episode being the Damsel in Distress, when the Wookies try to feed him to the Titan version of Frikadella Schlömpel, one of the Sims from his Sims Let's Play.
  • Undignified Death: After being built up as a vastly important character over the course of the season and being one of the remaining three, he is not even given an own death scene and simply deleted alongside all the previously "eliminated" Clashers in the penultimate episode. Manu and Taddl don't even react to this.
  • Weapon of Choice: A stone sword from Minecraft, which he always carries on his shoulder.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: While he and all the other Clashers are assembled inside the Recycle Bin of the world and the others start to lose hope and doubt themselves, he delivers a heartwarming speech about why they all are good people and what they do on Youtube has enriched not only the Youtube community but many of their viewers' lives. Motivated by this, they all find the courage to escape the cyber hell and go back to face the Big Bad.
  • You Won't Like How I Taste: What he tells Frikadella Schlömpel when she's dangerously close to devouring him. Made more funny by the fact that during his Sims Let's-Play, Gronkh established that Frikadella eats absolutely anything.

     Julien aka JuliensBlog  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/julien_intro.png
"Ihr Luschen seid also mein Team?" ("So you scrubs are supposed to be my team?")
  • Asshole Victim: After he spends the entirety of his screen time ranting and insulting each and every person he meets, no one is the slightest bit upset when he [[spoiler: bites it in Episode 2, not even the members of his own Clash.
  • Back for the Finale: Alongside all the other "dead" Clashers.]]
  • Butt-Monkey: Is this for almost the entirety of his screen time in Episode 2, being kicked out of his own Clash, then kidnapped by a Titan, being forced to blow into a very phallic shell to call for help, then falling into the ocean and drifting away, only to be eaten alive by a Kaiju. Also qualifies for Humiliation Conga.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Just as he is drifting away from the island and giving a speech about how ridiculous he thinks the entire premise of their situation is, he is swallowed by a gigantic fish-like Kaiju.
  • Gag Penis: The scope of his gun clearly resembles male genitalia.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Watching him go through his Humiliation Conga on it's own is already quite satisfying, watching him being swallowed by a giant fishlike Kaiju - even better.
  • Large Ham: Even within a World of Ham, he manages to be this.
  • Motor Mouth: Julien constantly rants about how everyone else is incompetent and sucks, firing colorful insults at both his teammates and opponents non-stop and rarely even lets them speak.
  • Not Himself: After he is dropped into the ocean by the slain Titan, he lands inside a container containing a liquid called "Niveau", which is both a reference to the cosmetic brand "Nivea" and initiator of this trope: Due to coming in contact with such a huge amount of "Niveau", Julien's personality completely changes for the better. He now talks in a rather eloquent and sophisticated manner, kindly thanks Chan for rescuing him and even lampshades their entire situation in a self-ironic way, then proclaims he is going to float away with the container in order to get help. This Heel–Face Turn doesn't do him any good though.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After he falls into the ocean and floats away inside a giant container containing liquid "Niveau", he decides to simply escape the island by letting the flood take him away. Then a Kaiju swallows him...
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He gets the least bit of screen time of all the Clashers yet manages to use more swear words during that time span than everyone else for the rest of the entire season. This might also count as a Verbal Tic.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: Is the first one to die and in a rather undignified fashion at that.
  • The Cynic: Never uses a single positive term to describe anything.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Not really a speech, but he manages to deliver a plethora of insults to each and every other Clasher, explaining why he deems them all useless fools.
  • The Scrappy: Is this to the majority of the series' viewers for obvious reasons.
  • Undignified Death: Is given this due to his Scrappy status.
  • Verbal Tic: As seen above.
  • Weapon of Choice: Gets one as everyone else does: His is what appears to be a normal gun at first glance. Which then transforms into a bigger gun. Which transforms into an even bigger gun. This goes on and on, until finally, a scope is added to the gun. A large, oversized, phallic scope.

    Manu aka GermanLetsPlay (GLP)  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/glp.PNG
"Langweilig wird es hier nie. Das ist das Internet, Leute!" ("It never gets boring here. This is the internet, people!"
  • Ambiguously Gay: Even more so than Taddl.
  • Bishōnen: Despite the fact that his face is never seen, most female fans see him as this.
  • Cool Pet: A Wookie sent by Taddl. He only gets to keep it for a few seconds though...
  • Deadpan Snarker: Possesses a great amount of wit and an inexhaustible arsenal of snarky remarks.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Quickly became this amongst fans of the series, his bromance with the also very popular Taddl playing a big part and being viewed as The Cutie by many female fans. He is also the winner of the first season, having received the most votes from fans.
  • Friendship Moment: Has several of those with Taddl. Some might say, there's even more to their relationship than meets the eye.
  • Heroic BSoD: Goes through one after it is revealed that his close friend Coldmirror has betrayed them all.
  • Heterosexual Lifepartners: With Taddl. Or are they?
  • Lovable Nerd: Striped sweater, hiding his face out of shyness and being a gamer? What's not to love?
  • Manchild: His behaviour and sense of humor sometimes makes him seem like one.
  • Moment Killer: Interrupts a touching or otherwise emotionally heavy moment with a snarky remark on several occasions.
  • Ship Tease: He and Taddl. So, so much. The GLPaddl-ship existed way before TubeClash did.
  • Squee! : When at one point, Taddl extends an arm to him, asking him to join him on the way up (back to the surface), Manu lets out a muffled sound that somewhat resembles a squee or a longing sigh. He even places a hand on his friend's chest.GlPaddl-shippers are sure to Squee! themselves. Might also count as Fanservice and Homoerotic Subtext.
  • The Faceless: Just like in real life, his face is never seen since he always wears a white mask over it. In-Universe, the mask's expression changes in accordance with his emotions however.
  • Transformation Sequence: Whenever he transforms into GermanLesMil, a gigantic, obese version of himself.
  • The Unintelligible: To a small extent. His voice is muffled due to him always wearing his signature mask, resulting in him being somewhat harder to understand at times.
  • The Woobie: Is this for a large part of the season. First of all, he is not in the same Clash as his best friend Taddl, resulting in him being almost constantly depressed and angry until he reunites with him. When Taddl sends him a message via a friendly Wookie, Manu decides to adopt it. Seconds later, Gronkh kills it, believing Manu to be in danger. And finally Coldmirror, who he had formed a friendship with and who had provided him with much needed positive energy turns out to be a Hidden Villain, resulting in another short lived phase of depression.
  • Vulgar Humor: Displays this on a few occasions, especially when around Coldmirror.
  • Weapon of Choice: His GLP-Controller, a typical SNES-Controller sans the Nintendo-logo since Manu replaced it with his own logo. He never really uses it as a weapon though, but rather as a tool to transform himself.

Season 2 Clashers

Clash A

    Dagi Bee 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dagi.png
"Ach, sieh an. Wen haben wir denn da?" ("Well, well, well. Who do we have here?")
  • Adaptation Personality Change: To make her more sympathetic, the creators left out any possible reference to the controversies regarding her real life counterpart, especially the commercial aspects of her channel. Thus, she simply comes across as a cheery, well-meaning Nice Girl.
  • Armor-Piercing Response: Gives one to Max in Episode 3. After the latter says he regrets to have agreed to accompany her, she responds with this:
    Dagi: You know, maybe you're right. Maybe you are perfect in every way and I'm just the little naive girl you believe me to be. And you really are right. I believed that you would always protect our team with your experience. That really was naive of me.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: When she and Max reunite at the end of Season 2, both pretty much admit their mutual affection by embracing each other heartily.
  • Cartwright Curse: Being the designated love interest for the single greatest badass among the Clashers, her ultimate fate isn't all that surprising.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Her death, namely being swallowed alive by a giant serpent-like creature, the Baron is without a doubt the darkest demise out of all the deaths in the entire series up to that point.
  • Eaten Alive
  • Hidden Badass: She has the ability to transform into a Titan by biting herself as Kurono explains to her. She only gets to use this power once, though.
  • I Was Just Joking: After she and Max hug it out in Season 2 Finale, she jokes about how he owes her ten bucks for the hug, referencing a real life incident. She immediately clarifies she is just joking.
  • Nice Girl: Is genuinely nice to everybody around her and even maintains a positive attitude towards Max, who constantly expresses his disdain for her during the first few episodes. Then again, this might be because she's secretly crushing on him.
  • Sacrificial Lion: After her rocky relationship with Max is build up throughout the first few episodes, it seems like she and him are finally able to overcome their shyness and admit to their mutual crush. All HandOfBee-shippers rejoice at this point. Enter the Baron...
  • Ship Tease: With Max.
  • The Chick: Only female Clasher in Clash A. Also more feminine than Clash B's only female Clasher Melina.
  • The Ditz: Averted. Despite her physical appearance matching the Dumb Blonde stereotype, she proves to be savvy and competent for a while.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Mild example. Max frantically yells at her to immediately leave the spot she's standing on as he realizes what is about to happen. She doesn't listen, being too dumbfounded to comprehend what's going on. The Baron then bursts out from the ground beneath her and swallows her whole.
  • Weapon of Choice: Being part Titan herself, she doesn't need one.

     Julien Bam aka Ju 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ju.png
"Warum verkriechen bis wir geholt werden wie Schlachttiere? Jetzt sind wir am Zug!" ("Why hide until we are picked off like cattle? It's our turn to act now!")
  • A Father to His Men: Refuses to leave Luca and Kurono behind when the group is attacked by a horde of demonic goats and comes back to aid them in their battle. He later admits he views them as his friends.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: For TubeClash standards. While being blown up is bad enough, he gets blown up after having his trust betrayed by someone he believes to be a friend. The look of pure shock on his face just before he dies is pretty heartbreaking. Furthermore, he is one of only two Clashers whose corpse is seen after their death.
  • Death by Irony: Kind of. After emphasizing the importance of trust and teamwork throughout the entire season, this is what gets him killed: He puts his faith into Stegi and chooses to cooperate with him, not recognizing that the latter has lured him into a trap. He then dies in an explosion triggered by Stegi.
  • Death Trap: He, Luca and Max walk right into one of these. Ju even goes "It's a trap!"
  • Freudian Trio: Together with Max and Luca, his role being the Superego.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: During Episode 5, when he is wandering around alone, Ju openly admits to himself that he doesn't think his Clash really needs him and that he's just weighing them down. He gets a boost of confidence shortly after, though.
  • Hyper-Awareness: Demonstrates this on several occasions, most notably during the crane scene in the first episode.
  • Lured into a Trap: The way Stegi kills him.
  • Narrator: During several instances throughout the season his voice is heard at the end of the episode, philosophizing about current events, morals and suchlike. Note that even he seems to be unaware of his narrative abilities since he is unconscious the first time his voice is heard narrating, indicating that the narration is only a voice within his subconsciousness.
  • Nice Guy: Never swears once and always tries his best to please everybody, all while keeping a positive attitude. It doesn't always work the way he intends it to.
  • Sherlock Scan: The way he analyzes the perilous situation he and his fellow Clashers are in qualifies as this: In Episode 1, he and his teammates all awaken within a giant concrete pipe attached to a crane and dangling dangerously above the ground far below. Using this trope, Ju is able to find the solution to their plight.
  • The Leader: Is this for Clash A throughout most of the season.
  • The Smart Guy: The reason he is made leader of Clash A. He also frequently gets lost in his own thoughts, often while pondering rather trivial matters, reminiscent of Dr. Allwissend in Season 1.
  • Weapon of Choice: Doesn't have one as he uses his martial arts skills instead.

    Kurono 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuro.png
"Passt auf euren Ochinchin auf!" ("Look after your ochinchin!")
  • Adorkable: Due to being a huge anime nerd with a very positive attitude.
  • Arch-Enemy: It's not simply one Pico who shows up to make Kurono's life a living hell, but a whole bunch of them. Pico is the lead character of an anime OVA that Kurono had once forced himself to watch. The less said about this, the better.
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: When Ju comes back to help him and Luca take down the attacking goat horde, Kurono is less than happy about the former's intervention, claiming he and Luca could have handled it on their own.
  • Death Cry Echo: When releasing the genkidama.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Instead of simply giving up and letting himself be smothered by a horde of Pico zombies,he instead channels all the energy left inside him to create a powerful genkidama, killing himself and all the zombies.
  • Friendship Moment: Shares one with Luca, who boosts his confidence by telling Kurono he's a great guy. Kurono greatly appreciates this.
  • Genre Savvy: Knows a whole lot about anime, which is why he is able to recognize Dagi's secret power which ultimately saves his Clash during Episode 1.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: Frequently speaks in this manner, using terms like "niceu" and "ochinchin" among others.
  • Hidden Depths: His talk with Luca during Episode 4 shows this, as described below.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: An anime geek in his case.
  • The Woobie: To an extent. While usually always displaying a positive and energetic attitude, his talk with Luca during Episode 4 reveals that deep inside, he is unsure of himself and very shy due to being the subject of criticism his whole life, especially from this father. This might also indicate he's a Stepford Smiler.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Believes the magic lamp of the Akinator to be the magic lamp of the Genie from Aladdin and even argues over this with Luca. He turns out to be wrong.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: What Luca tells him after Kurono reveals his inner insecurity to him. Makes for a short, but touching moment.

    Luca aka Concrafter 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luca10.jpg
"Maaann, ich hab doch gesagt die Ziege ist der Teufel!" ("Maaan, I told you that goat was the devil!")
  • Batman Gambit: How he outwits the Akinator and tricks him into revealing vital information concerning the whereabouts of Dagi.
  • Cassandra Truth: No one listens to his warnings concerning the stray goat, a mistake which almost causes the entire Clash to be wiped out.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Shows a rather dry, sardonic wit at times, as on this occasion:
    Kurono: Ich bin Perser, wie Aladdin! (I'm a Persian, like Aladdin!)
    Luca: Wie der Teppich von Aladdin. (Like the carpet of Aladdin.)
  • Death Trap: Walks into one alongside Max and Ju. Ju doesn't make it out alive.
  • Freudian Trio: Together with Max and Ju, his role being the Ego.
  • Friendship Moment: Shares one with Kurono during Episode 4, establishing their comradeship.
  • Gilligan Cut: Luca emphasizes the importance of stealth, insisting that he and his remaining team find a way to sneak up on the Master's base without the latter realizing. Cut to him, Max and Ju driving towards the base in an insanely loud desert buggy, with Luca looking disgruntled.
  • I Told You So: Says this to his Clash after the stray goat returns and turns out to be a Not-So-Harmless Villain.
  • Most Annoying Sound: His singing voice seems to be this: He manages to shoo an entire horde of goats and Endermen away, simply by playing his ukulele and singing along. Even though it ends up saving the day, Max does not approve.
  • Properly Paranoid: Warns everyone about the goat that casually wanders around nearby, claiming it is an incarnation of the devil. The others shrug this off, of course. Turns out he was right.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: After Kurono's demise, Luca becomes visibly angry and determined for the first time throughout the season, swearing vengeance upon the Master and the Hater-Bot and leading the charge to defeat the latter.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: Gets one before delivering the final blow on the recycled Hater-Bot accidentally killing Melina in the process.
    Luca: This war ends here and now! For Kurono!
  • Simpleton Voice: Averted. Despite his voice making him sound rather dim-witted and incompetent, he is by no means any less intelligent than his fellow Clashers. His voice becomes more normal and serious whenever he is focused or angry.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: His reaction to his impending death in the Season 2 Finale:
    Luca: "Ok...ok...Ich bin raus." ("Ok...ok...I'm out.")
  • Took a Level in Badass: During the Season Finale, he manages to almost outsmart the Master Hunters and take down their airship on his own.
  • Weapon of Choice: An ukulele, in reference to a running gag from Concrafter's videos.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: What he tells Kurono during their moment of bonding.

     Max aka HandOfBlood 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/max17.png
"Ja! Wir gehen REIN in die City und ich carry euch Noobs, alles klar?" ("Yeah! We're going IN! Right into the city and I'll carry all of you noobs, alright?")
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: When he and Dagi reunite at the end of Season 2.
  • Big NO: Utters this when the Baron swallows Dagi whole.
  • Blatant Lies: Gives Dagi a wistful side glance at one point. When Luca gleefully calls him out on this, he blushes and clumsily tries to deny the accusation. It doesn't fool anybody.
  • Cartwright Curse: His love interest dies within the very same episode both realize their mutual crush.
  • Character Development: Gets the most of this out of all the Clashers, alongside Stegi.
  • Cool Shades: One of his trademarks. Puts on one these ever once in a while, often to put emphasis on his own statements.
  • Cosplay: As Master Yi in Episode 6 and 7.
  • Crush Blush: Frequently blushes when near Dagi and later whenever his crush on her is brought up by Luca.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially in earlier episodes.
  • Death Trap: Walks in one alongside Ju and Luca.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: After having sworn to enact vengeance on Stegi following Julien Bam's death, he eventually allows Stegi to convince him to aid him in his plan and delivers an epic speech about trust before sacrificing himself to enable Stegi to enact his plan, dying with a peaceful smile on his face.
  • Everyone Can See It: In-Universe, it is very obvious that he and Dagi have a thing for one another, as they both tend to blush when looking at the other, though Max doesn't seem (or doesn't want) to realize he's crushing on her. Only after she is devoured by the Baron does he show his deep affection for her.
  • Famous Last Words: "Bau bloß keine Scheiße" ("You better don't fuck this up"). Says this to Stegi before sacrificing himself.
  • Go Out with a Smile: During a "blink and you'll miss it"-moment Max gives a final peaceful smile to the screen before disintegrating
  • Freudian Trio: Together with Luca and Ju, his role being the Id.
  • Grumpy Bear: Is this during the first few episodes. It is all a facade to hide his true feelings for Dagi.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Becomes this after the death of his crush.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Is the first to volunteer to delete himself in order to go through with Stegi's plan. It is not really a sacrifice since it enables everyone to come back to life, including himself, but he still does die temporarily.
  • Manly Tears: After he brutally slaughters the Baron following the death of his secret crush, one shot reveals fluid dripping down the side of his face, which might be tears. Or sweat. Or both.
  • Meaningful Name: After he punches Stegi in the face during the penultimate episode, his right hand becomes soaked in the other's blood.
  • Old Soldier: Has this reputation among his fellow Clashers, not because of his age though. Being a skilled player at League of Legends and an aficionado of old fashioned Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game, he has the most experience in combat out of all the Clashers, which Ju notes when asking him to protect the team.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: Delivers this one before punching Stegi in the face:
    (about to get punched) Stegi: Wait...wait, Max!
    Max: For you, it's still HandOfBlood! (throws a punch)
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Goes berserk and brutally slices the Baron into half after it eats Dagi. Also goes on this after Stegi tricks and blows up Julien Bam
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: Frequently yells "Schlitz!" (Slice!) while in combat.
  • Ship Tease: With Dagi Bee, causing fans to create the HandOfBee-ship.
  • Signature Laugh: A high-pitched one, resembling a dolphin.
  • The Leader: Of Clash A towards the end of the season.
  • The One Thing I Don't Hate About You: After Dagi saves the group in the first episode by transforming herself into a Titan halfway, even Max, who at this point still pretends to hate her, can't deny that he liked what he just saw, though he still tries to play it down.
    Max: Dagi! You look... better than you usually do.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers one to Stegi in the penultimate episode, berating him for tricking and murdering Julien Bam.
    Stegi: I had no choice, the Master has me over a barrel! He transformed Tim...
    Max: So you killed our leader and betrayed all of your friends? Because of this? Man! How can one person be this selfish?
  • This Means War!: Implies this after Stegi lures Ju to his death.
  • Too Cool to Live: Establishes himself as the group's biggest badass and most skilled fighter, but ultimately sacrifices himself to allow the other remaining two to move on.
  • Tranquil Fury: Following Dagi's death at the hands of the Baron, Max stares at the creature for a moment, his expression revealing the building rage within him. Then he gets his hands on his Weapon of Choice. Slaughter commences.
  • Weapon of Choice: A huge Samurai sword, mirroring the one of Master Yi.

Clash B

    Melina 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/12301364_1682774718659608_2065004984_n.jpg
"Freundschaft ist Bae!" ("Friendship is bae!")
  • Action Girl: Never afraid to get into a fight to protect her friends.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: While she and Stegi are inside the Nether and facing peril in form of Ghasts, she suddenly breaks into song, singing "Screw the Nether!", all to boost Stegi's confidence.
  • Edible Ammunition: She throws pizzas at the Hater-Bot at one point. Funnily enough, it turns out to be effective since the pizzas land on the Hater-Bot's robotic eyes, blinding the Master who controls it from within.
  • Famous Last Words: Not really her last words, but the last shot of Episode 7 is a freeze image of her smiling in front of a black background while her voice is heard saying "Im Krieg...gibt es keine Sieger." ("There are no winners...in war.")
  • Foil: To Stegi during their journey to find Tim. Her jovial and energetic attitude greatly contrasts her pessimistic and fearful companion's.
  • Genki Girl: Melina is a true ball of energy, seemingly never getting tired.
  • Keet: A female example. She is always in the highest of spirits, even when facing severe danger.
  • Nice Girl: Helpful, jovial and constantly smiling.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her reaction when realizing she picked a terrible spot to stand on in the middle of a heated battle, namely on top of the Hater-Bot, who is about to be crushed and blown up by Concrafter.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: A mild example. After barely escaping the Master Hunter's airship, she and Stegi watch it go down and sink into the ocean. Melina then expresses sympathy for Luna - the board AI - completely neglecting Herr Bergmann and Izzi who had also been on board. Stegi is quick to call her out on this, looking genuinely indignant.

    Paluten 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/12276821_494537007392644_1770025627_n.jpg
"Auweia, alter Halunke, dieses Mal sitzen wir ganz schön in der Patsche! ("Oh dear, we're in a really pretty pickle this time, old boy!")
  • Cool Pet: His pig Edgar counts as this.
  • Hope Spot: For a short moment during Episode 5, it seems like the Big Bad is about to be captured and Paluten happily volunteers to bring the seemingly paralysed Master on board. It quickly turns out to have just been a ruse...
  • Nice Guy
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Stands out the least among his fellow Clashers. It doesn't help that he takes part in several scenes featuring guest stars, all of which have both remarkably strange appearances and far more colorful personalities.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: After escaping the monstrous twins together with his pet pig Edgar, he stumbles upon the two most important side characters of the entire season and is given plot crucial information by them. He then goes on to accompany them in their quest to capture the Master and seems to succeed in doing so. Then he is abruptly and unceremoniously killed off.
  • The Generic Guy: Arguably the Clasher with the least outlandish personality, the only unusual thing about him being pet pig Edgar.
  • The Voiceless: During the final episode. He is the only Clasher to not have any lines after everyone is brought back to life.
  • Undignified Death: First, the Master reveals to him that his pet pig Edgar had really been the Master's subordinate all along, the evil clone pig Schmedgar. The Master then transforms the already heartbroken Paluten's head into a pumpkin, mocking him while he does it. Schmedgar then throws himself at the poor guy, ramming him and thus sending him flying over the railing of the airship they're on, causing Paluten to plummet to his death.

     Rewi aka Rewinside 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/01_01_16_1.jpg
"Hehe, endlich ist mal was los hier..." ("Hehe, things are finally starting to get interesting...")
  • Angry Fist-Shake: Does this in the Season Finale, when expressing his anger about missing all the action.
  • Anti-Hero: He isn't the slightest bit phased by the prospect of having to seek out and kill his fellow Youtubers. He even goes so far as to openly reject Paluten's proposition to simply team up and make peace with the other Clash.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Is introduced as a foolhardy daredevil, finding enjoyment and thrill in battle and adventure and is the only Clasher to be excited as of the prospect of having to meet his fellow Youtubers in combat.
  • Foil: To Stegi during the first two episodes.
  • Mauve Shirt: Despite being one of the ten main characters, he becomes this since he doesn't get more than a couple scenes and a bit of characterisation before he kicks the bucket.
  • Never My Fault: Even as he is plummeting to his doom, he spends his last act on earth loudly proclaiming that it was not his fault, a reference to his Minecraft videos.
    Rewi (while falling): "NEIN MANN, DIE TASTATUR WAR SCHUUUUUUUULD!" ("NO DAMNIT, IT'S ALL THE KEYBOARD'S FAUUUUUUULT!")
  • Pride Before a Fall: A very literal example.
  • Signature Laugh: One that sounds more like a wheezing donkey than a human being.
  • Surprisingly Sudden Death: Is build up as a foil to the levelheaded and peace-loving Stegi, only to be the first one to die in the season, in an "out of nowhere" fashion at that.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Apparently, Rewi thinks it is a good idea to mock the Master himself. While jumping across blocks that are hanging in mid-air. Directly over a bottomless chasm. He quickly learns that it is not.
  • Weapon of Choice: A lead pipe, which he carries over his shoulder.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Is established as a ballsy roughneck, who takes great pleasure in fighting. He then follows Stegi and Melina into the darkness the next night and dies. And that's all there is to him.

    Stegi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stegi.jpg
"I vermisse ihn so sehr... Kannst du ihn mir zurückgeben... bitte?" ("I miss him so, so much... Can you give him back to me...please?")
  • Ambiguously Gay: His relationship with Tim can be interpreted in various ways.
  • Bishōnen: No explanation needed.
  • Break the Cutie: As of the penultimate episode, he has lost almost everyone he truly cares for, had to betray his other friends and even kill one of them and can't even be sure that his plan to bring everyone back to life will work.
  • Deadpan Snarker: On numerous occasions, especially the first few episodes.
  • Determinator: Nothing will ever stand between him and his goal to revive his best friend Tim. Absolutely nothing.
  • Heroic BSoD: Goes through one after Melina dies, leaving him completely alone and having to endure the loss of the two people he cares for the most.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: When the brainwashed Tim confronts him, Stegi slowly walks towards him and desperately tells him that he knows that the man in front of him is not his friend Tim and that the real Tim is still within him, somewhere. All while the latter slices open his cheeks.
  • Manly Tears: Breaks out into tears when confronting the Master and lamenting how much he misses Tim. While Stegi himself isn't particularly manly, it still qualifies.
  • Not So Different: What he tells the Master aka Manu. Both have lost someone really close to them and suffered a great deal.
  • The Cutie: Is this to a large part of the fandom.
  • The Woobie: His best friend/lover is abducted, then transformed into a lifeless puppet, his only companion Melina dies in front of him and to top it all of, he is eventually forced to betray the rest of his friends and even kill Ju, all to make sure things go back to normal again.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: While his actions towards the end of Episode 8 are truly despicable, he only performs them in order to go through with his big plan to bring everyone back to life in the end, including his best friend - some might say lover - Tim.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: During Episode 8, he advises Ju to wait in a specific spot until he sends him a means of transportation. He then tells Ju that he's sorry and blows up the entire building the latter is standing in, much to the shock of Max and Luca.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Delivers a touching speech to the Master aka Manu on why the latter can still be a hero and find redemption.

    Sturmwaffel aka Sturmi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sturmi.png
"Also, nach Insel sieht mir das hier jetzt nicht aus." ("Well, this doesn't exactly look like an island to me.")
  • Badass Beard: Not as badass as the one of Gronkh, but it still qualifies.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Takes down the "Misset-Twins" by tackling them and launching them into a black hole along with himself, which ends up saving Paluten and Edgar.
  • Nice Hat: Always wears a beanie.
  • Non-Action Guy: Averted. Seems to be this based on the first two episodes, but isn't afraid to fight the twins in Episode 3.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: "Und jetzt zu uns..." ("Now, let's get to the two of us...")
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: While not the group's leader, he is the most diplomatic and compromise seeking of all the Clashers in Clash B and tries to act in the group's best interest whenever he gets the chance. He also seems to be well respected by all his teammates.
  • Taking You with Me: He throws himself at the evil twins, thus not only enabling Paluten and his pet Edgar to escape, but also launching himself and the foes into the black hole they created, killing both them and himself in the process.
  • The Smart Guy: The first to notice the strange discrepancies concerning their environment.
  • Weapon of Choice: His "Schnittfisch" (Cutfish), a fish resembling a flounder wearing sunglasses, which he finds inside an aquarium. This is a reference to his videos, where this fish can be seen onscreen whenever Sturmi makes a cut.

Other characters (Season 2)

     The Master Hunters aka Herr Bergmann and Izzi 
  • Cyborg: Both of them possess cybernetic limbs, due to their creation process having been "imperfect".
  • Evil All Along: After supporting several of the members of Clash B throughout episodes five and six, they resurface during the penultimate episode, now a threat and openly hostile towards the remaining Clashers. However, the Season Finale shows that they have in fact also been Good All Along since their motivation for working against the Clashers is completely justified, making them at least Anti-Villains.
  • Famous Last Words: Before being permanently deleted, Herr Bergmann manages to utter this threat/warning towards Luca:
    Herr Bergmann: "Ihr solltet nicht hier sein!" ("None of you should be here!")
  • Killed Off for Real: They are not resurrected alongside all the previously dead Clashers in the Finale, seemingly having perished for good, even though there is a chance they were among the data restored by Manu and we might see them in Season 3.
  • Verbal Tic: Whenever pronouncing the syllable "zu" (which is quite common in German vocabulary), Herr Bergmann abruptly tilts his head to the side, ending whatever sentence he intends to say.
