This page is for the tropes applying to Vanoss and his group of friends.

    open/close all folders 
    The whole Group
Most of the members in 2018
A group of Youtubers chatting, laughing and making jokes and skits over games.

Their videos usually consists of them messing around and one-upping each other to prove who's the Butt-Monkey and who's The Gadfly.

  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: As much as they regularly troll, yell and insult each other, the group themselves are actually very close friends (see Heartwarming).
  • Contagious Laughter: Most of the appeal is how often everyone makes each other laugh.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Each of the group had their own quirks prior to the ones that most of their subscribers have come to know them for.
    • Before his trolling tendencies became prominent, Vanoss was just as much of a victim towards the others' antics in-game and even just as gullible.
    • Wildcat's temperament was surprisingly less in his earlier days, was forgiving of the others for making him a victim of their shenanigans and was more often known to be the one to deliver comedy with his "hillbilly mock" voice, which he very rarely does now.
    • Terroriser used to act incompetent in favor of delivering humor for both his channel and friends. See Obfuscating Stupidity in his entry below.
    • Contrary to what he tells to his fans, Moo occasionally swore in his earlier videos before settling to make things more "friendly" once he and the others were now forming a bigger community.
    • Delirious was regularly competent and paid a lot of attention whenever the others were playing before accepting his persona that people know him for today.
    • Basically had an occasional habit of doing "magic tricks" (mostly committing suicide in-game and then disconnecting).
    • Mini was usually the first to die in a round of Prop Hunt, the first to get tagged in Hide and Seek and the first to die in a round of Murder before getting better.
    • Nogla played the role of the troll more often than Vanoss, Terroriser or Wildcat did before they eventually took over and made him one of the more prominent victims of their schemes (usually by Vanoss).
  • Fan Nickname: Some fans call them the Banana Bus Squad.
  • Multinational Team: We got:
    • Vanoss and Smii7y from Canada (and Vanoss is also part-Chinese and Korean.)
    • Droidd from Mexico.
    • Terroriser and Nogla from Ireland, and Mini from Northern Ireland.
    • And everyone else from America (with Basically being of African-American and Quinault Native American descent and Lui of Spanish and Guam descent)
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Subverted on most parts, as they call each other either by their nickname or real names.

The core group

    VanossGaming (Evan Fong)
2015 - present day
2011 - 2015

A Canadian YouTuber, and the de facto head of the group (it is his name in the title of this page, after all). While not the leader per se, he does tend to lead the team through various self-concocted skits and sketches, often using video editing to increase the impact of the jokes. Calm and collected, Vanoss has a habit of deliberately annoying friend and foe alike for amusement - which has a tendency to bite him in the backside. Rarely, if ever, plays solo.

His GTA V and Gmod avatar is an owl-human hybrid with a persona of a Batman Expy originally called Night Owl but later changed to Bat Owl, after reported legal issues over having almost the same name as Nite Owl from Watchmen. Previously he played as a giant Luigi model.

Vanoss is the most subscribed-to YouTuber of the group.

  • The Ace:
    • After taking some time of screwing around with TNT and redstone in Minecraft and observing Brian create some destructive pranks, Vanoss has taken up the mantle of Terroriser, becoming the second (if not the) most threatening prankster on the group's Minecraft server.
    • Turns out Vanoss is incredible at Among Us, not through any in-game clues, but because he's just that good at recognising the tells in his friend's voices.
  • Animal Motifs: Owls. He is even the source of the Houdini/owl joke. note 
  • Becoming the Mask: Originally, the owl mask is just that; a mask. But it soon became an iconic part of his character, to the point that any depiction of Vanoss, official or otherwise, draws the mask as part of his physiology, creating a human with the head of an owl. On a personal level, some of Bat Owl has bled into Vanoss' own in-game persona, especially in Paranormal Action Squad.
  • Big "NO!": Everyone does this whenever something bad happens to them, but Vanoss himself has a very distinctive one.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "ALRIGHT!"
    • "Keep 'er goin'..."
    • "KAPOOYAH!"
    • "Hubadah!"
  • Canada, Eh?: Vanoss mostly averts this trope, but some of his friends do poke fun at his nationality once in a while.
  • Cassandra Truth: In “Among Us” Vanoss always figures out the imposters early, but no one believes him until it’s too late.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Not really weird, but pre-2016, Vanoss used to interact a lot with his subscribers through his videos and even did a "Question and Answer" video once. His interactions to his subscribers at that time were usually addressing certain things about the channel, between reassuring his subs about the condition of his channel to telling them about what they're doing in the game they will be watching. Though him abandoning this is probably justified due to how big his channel has gotten.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He might be a Troll, but he will go out of his way to help his friends whenever the situation isn't suitable for his otherwise playful trolling.
  • The Gadfly: Very much so; he often deliberately disobeys his friends/orders, runs in guns blazing and kills them all, or just plain ruins their plans, just for giggles.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Subverted BIG TIME. He's the calmest of the group and it's very rare to actually see him get very annoyed, let alone be angry to the point of shouting. He says all his anger is transferred to his "Canadian Anger Vessels". The only time we actually see him get even a bit angry or a little upset is when he plays Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the first time and even then he seems slightly chilled out due to not having fun and seemingly being pissed off at the game.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Due to Vanoss' frequent shenanigans, karma will often come in the form of anything negative happening to him, simply due to the pure amount of times he started annoying his friends for no other reason than to bother them.
  • Living Lie Detector: In Among Us. As he and his friends put it in their video titles, Vanoss knows his friends all too well and can easily, with relatively little evidence, immediately tell who are the Impostor(s) based on their voices alone. Unfortunately, he is rarely if ever listened to until too late.
  • Mad Bomber: His Minecraft character, where he likes explosives a little too much to be sane and would blow up anything with TNT if he gets the chance. He also always has some TNT and a Flint and Steel in person, just in case. Justified, as Vanoss knows that Terroriser can reset the server at any time and any explosions can be undone. Possibly subverted, however, as when Vanoss blew up Delirious' house because he couldn't resist the temptation, he may or may not have known that that server couldn't be reset.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor:
    • Even though Vanoss can easily come off as a hypocritical jerk during his play time, he will very often care for his friends and (as noted above) go out of his way to help them whenever they aren't in a convenient situation for his otherwise playful trolling.
    • A video from Terroriser in 2017 shows that Evan sent him some Christmas gifts, some of which were genuinely thoughtful ones...though a couple were more than a little savage, such as an ethernet cable.
    • He doesn't even get angry at Delirious accidentally snitching on him in Among Us, and even answered honestly (that he was an Impostor) when prompted by Wildcat about it.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted; he is referred to both as Vanoss and his Real Life name, Evan.
  • Signature Laugh: Tends to let out a few short chuckles before fully busting into laughter.
  • The Stoic: Downplayed. Vanoss is far from emotionless, but he rarely (if ever) explodes with rage, unlike most of his group. Not even playing Golf It elicits more than a mildly annoyed reaction.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: In Minecraft, expect him to blow up something with TNT whenever he gets the chance to. Up to Eleven in his Doomsday Prank video, where he plants a metric ton of TNT underneath his and his friends' buildings, and rigs a massive Redstone system to set them all off.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pizza seems to be this for Evan as shown in multiple of his videos where he talks about having ordered or going to get one during a play session with the others. It's also one of his excuses when he just wants to mess with his friends.
    • In fact, in an old deleted video of him, Brock and Delirious playing Blacks Ops II Zombies, it's the very reason why he, Delirious and Brock failed in the map "Buried"... on Easy difficulty. The reason was that he actually had to get his pizza downstairs and left both Brock and Delirious nearly defenseless against the next wave of zombies while protecting his idle corpse.
  • Took a Level in Badass: in Minecraft. His first time playing Minecraft when the game went back into pop culture didn't go very well, among other things accidentally poisoning himself by eating raw chicken, getting blown up by a Creeper because he wasn't paying attention to his six, or almost walking backwards into lava. Within the time period of less than two months, he went from that into a dangerous, unpredictable Redstone engineer and cunning prankster, capable of hiding secret entrances and passages in plain sight. This is taken Up to Eleven when he learnt how to world edit and make buildings disappear/reappear to his will.

    H2ODelirious (Jonathan)

A... person, that's for sure. Delirious is one of the more energetic, strange and mysterious YouTubers of the group. He is easily the weirdest of the entire group, spouting gibberish and playing up a persona of a wacky and borderline-insane individual. Sometimes plays with the group, sometimes plays solo, and sometimes plays with his own group of friends with Cartoonz, Bryce, Gorillaphent, Deadsquirell and Ohm. Out of all the YouTubers in the group, he is the one people know the least about — only Cartoonz has ever met him in person.

His GTA V and Gmod avatar is a man wearing a blue jacket, black pants and a hockey mask (which also hides his clown makeup), though sometimes he uses a superhero raccoon known as Batcoon.

  • Animal Motifs:
    • Raccoons as befitting his Batcoon avatar, although he's seen using his hockey mask more often.
    • Crows too, often editing a cutout of a crow on screen when he's scared or surprised due to his rather crow-like screams. Said crow is often stylized depending on the video. Cosplaying as a granny/kid in Granny Simulator, pixelated in Minecraft, etc.
  • Ax-Crazy: In the games he plays that involve decimating his opponents he shows this side of him along with some Evil Laughter.
  • Babies Ever After: As of September 29 2020, he's the dad of a child with LizKatz
  • Bald of Evil: His avatar across all depictions (GTA, GMOD, SFM and the art used for his channel) is near-shaven, presumably to better fit the mask in-universe and to better hide his identity out-of-universe. The only exception to this is the Magic Tomato series of animations, where he is depicted with a full mop of brown hair.
  • Batter Up!: He is usually depicted in artwork with a baseball bat as his personal weapon.
  • Berserk Button: Does not take kindly to people impersonating his character.
    • Another one is teddy bears in video games getting hurt.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He may be one of the oddest of the group, but he has his moments of cleverness at times, such as this video where he was savvy enough to know where Mini and Nogla would hide.
  • Best Friends-in-Law: Averted with Cartoonz; he dated Delirious' sister for eight years at one point, but they broke up.
  • Big "NO!": While everyone in the group does big "No!"s commonly, Delirious does it so often it's come to the point where one Vanoss video intro is made entirely of Delirious' screams of "NOOOOO!" in the last episode.
  • Butt-Monkey: One of the three main ones in this group, fellow ones being Terroriser and Nogla.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander: His grasp on reality is...questionable, to say the least. He's the most likely to say strange or outright unintelligible stuff, alongside Nogla.
  • Cool Mask: His signature Hockey mask.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite his Cloudcuckoolander status, he sometimes displays impressive recoveries in combat, or can manage to avert a disaster. He has also proven himself a competent sniper in games like Fortnite and GTA 5.
  • Doom Magnet: Played for Laughs;
    • It seems in GTA V he can't step on the road without getting hit by cars.
    • If he's playing Gmod with the group, chances are good that he'll suddenly die at least once for no discernible reason at all.
  • The Faceless: He's the only one of the group who has not revealed his face to his subscribers; while his GTA V character wears clown facepaint, he's wearing the mask that covers it 90% of the time. The only person in the group that has met him in real life and knows what he looks like is Cartoonz.
  • Five-Man Band: With his own group of friends when not playing with Vanoss.
  • Giver of Lame Names: Delirious names any character or item relating to him [name]lirious, such as "babylirious" (whom he also refers to his child as), "assassinlirious", and for objects things like "gunlirious" or "batlirious".
  • Hidden Depths: If one of his old Minecraft videos (where he did a pixel art of Goku from Dragon Ball and Michelangelo from TMNT) is any indication, Delirious is actually a pretty good artist.
  • The Hyena: Delirious often descends into fits of evil laughter whenever something hilarious occurs to him, usually causing everyone (including those watching) to join in on laughing.
  • Idiot Hero: Tends to give incredibly obvious clues/puns on what his/his teammates' disguises are in Gmod Prop Hunt.
  • Malaproper: Like Nogla, Delirious is prone to stumbling on words, to the point that he's known for several unusual sentences.
  • Never My Fault: Whenever his team loses, he always points to his teammate(s) being the cause, despite the fact he did even worse (which they rightfully point out).
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Due to his Reclusive Artist treatment of his real-life info, the vast majority only know his online names.
  • Pungeon Master: Inverted. He/his team will die in Prop Hunt because of how obvious the puns are.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's the red oni to everyone else in the group, but a blue oni to his Hot-Blooded friend Cartoonz.
  • Signature Laugh: He tends to laugh evilly like Krusty the Clown from The Simpsons. Ironically, his Krusty The Clown impression is terrible.
  • The Spook: Compared to the other YouTubers in the group, very little, if anything at all, is known about him. The only things he has personally revealed about himself are that his first name is Jonathan, he is originally from Virginia, and that he currently hails from North Carolina. His IMDb page claims that his surname is Denis (or Dennis).
  • Strong and Skilled: At Call of Duty as he shows a lot of his unique skills and his strong usage with the certain type of styles.
  • Stylistic Suck: He deliberately uses a low-quality microphone because he (and/or his fans) believes that he sounds weird with a higher-quality one. The only times he uses a normal one is for solo videos.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: He's damn-near-impossible to escape from whenever he gets to play as Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th: The Game.
  • The Unreveal: After teasing for years about showing his face, he finally admits in his vlog for reaching ten million subscribers that he's not going to unmask, saying that he values his privacy.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: During his games, he uses an approach that relies more on brute strength than tactics.
  • Verbal Tic: In his first time playing Golf-it, he would often let out an odd grunt ("Eegh!") when hitting the ball.

    Terroriser (Brian Hanby)

An Irish YouTuber that plays with the group, sharing such a role alongside Daithi De Nogla. Best known for both his multitude of vlogs detailing journies around the world and his impressive range of voice impressions. His Arnold Schwarzenegger impression is his best known — and the most requested. Sometimes plays solo, but mostly plays with others.

Uses The Terminator as his Gmod avatar. Unlike the others, this is the only one he uses.

  • The Ace: In Mario Kart 8, contrasting his status as Butt-Monkey in other games.
  • Armor-Piercing Response: Terroriser has picked up a few levels in savagery lately if his roasting is any indication; lampshading and/or laughter often ensues afterwards.
    Moo: Oh, I'm too early.
    Terroriser: Hah, that's why you're having a baby.

    Wildcat: There's something wrong with this fucking controller, I swear to God!
    Terroriser: Yeah, the person holding it!

    Terroriser: (in response to runJDrun finishing almost last all the time) Good thing Nintendo don't click on the videos, man!

  • Animal Motifs: While he doesn't wear an animal mask that often in GTA Online, he sometimes wears a glitched horse mask, after a GTA Online video where he got stuck in the glitched mask along with a set of dumb-looking red Chinese suit and top hat.
  • The Ahnold: Terroriser's most famous persona, and although as of late he's a bit annoyed with it due to it feeling like being a Pigeon Holed Voice Actor, he slips into the persona from time to time.
  • Berserk Button:
    • He loathes being pestered into being pigeonholed as The Ahnold. He does it out of his own volition, but he's trying his damnedest not to be remembered for that reason alone. Ironically he also got pissed when Vanoss said Ohm did a better Arnold impression than him.
    • Vanoss is a big berserk button for Terroriser, due to years of being the butt of the various jokes.
    • Terroriser himself is a group-wide Berserk Button in Black Ops II due to his habit of knifing people during Gun Games (where they have to score a kill with each weapon, the first one to do so winning) and setting them back due to the kills to the point that Vanoss, Ohm and even himself consider the word 'Knifer' is synonymous with the word 'Asshole'.
    • He also easily gets annoyed while trying to play VR Golf.
  • Butt-Monkey
    • Is one of the group's main three, the others being Delirious and Nogla. Averted in Mario Kart 8 where he's The Ace.
    • Several Death Run maps based on the characters often have his logo on unflattering places (such as a cheap shoe box instead of a coffin like his friends).
  • Collector of the Strange: Has an entire collection of sound clips from his friends on a soundboard.
  • The Gadfly: There is no other explanation on why he would go out of his way to make everyone around him, even Moo Snuckel rage, either by knifing people during Call of Duty: Black Ops II Gun Games, deliberately hitting his friends' golf balls off course in Mini Golf, or anything of the sort; all of it are done on purpose by Brian For the Evulz.
  • Is This Thing Still On?: Inverted; there are many instances where Brian has accidentally muted himself without his knowledge.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Like Vanoss. He might like to mess around with his friends, but he genuinely cares about them and knows when to not cross the line. Overall, he's a decent and grounded person.
    Brian (in a livestream): "I don't like people who talk shit about my friends. [...] I'm very much ...protective of my friends."
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: Can do a variety of voices and accents, but his most known role is The Ahnold.
  • Never Heard That One Before: Says this when Panda phrases his last name "Hanby" as "Handjob".
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Used to pretend he was a fool for the sake of humor. After people started thinking he really was an idiot, he decided to drop the act and began to show that he's actually good at gaming.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted; he's known as both Terroriser and his Real Life name, Brian.
  • Running Gag:
    • Anytime Vanoss mentions the most famous Irish YouTuber of them all, Jacksepticeye, expect Terroriser to Rage Quit.
    • Vanoss also loves teasing him about being last to join their games.
    • He has a really bad habit of forgetting to turn his headset or mic on, and only finding out after several minutes of nobody hearing him.
  • Signature Laugh: His laugh by itself is fairly normal, but when he's really cracking up, he tends to start snorting like a pig which had earnt him the nickname 'Piggy-riser' by the others. Vanoss himself even has a unique picture of Terroriser with pig ears and a snout that shows up whenever he snorts in Vanoss' videos.
  • Unfortunate Names: Terroriser recommends that fans call him by his real name if they meet him in an airport.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has dyed his hair red.

    Daithi De Nogla (David Nagle)

The other Irish YouTuber of the group, Daithi is known for three main things — his adorable pet dogs Joe and Tony, his moments of sheer rage and his... interesting Irish accent. Rarely edits his own videos, which has earned him a good deal of mockery in the past, though recently has hired a personal editor like his fellows.

He used to play as Zoidberg in Gmod and on occasions used his GTA V character. He now uses a custom-made version of his channel icon, although his old model returns from time to time.

He has his own page here.

  • The Ace: Along with Terroriser, he's one of the two main aces in Mario Kart 8. Also, he's arguably this in the Call of Duty series, as is demonstrated in multiple cases:
    • When the group has played the Gungame mode in Black Ops 2, it was impossible for Nogla to not finish first unless he was ganged up on by two knifers (Terroriser and Vanoss) and everyone else (Marcel, Wildcat, Moo and Fourzero), in which case he almost won.
    • On the recent Modern Warfare 2019 stream, Terroriser has confirmed that whenever he is asked which member of the group is best at Call of Duty, he always says it's Nogla because: 1) It's true; 2) It pisses off Wildcat.
    • Whenever the group isn't screwing around with impractical tactics, it's usually Nogla that is at the top of the leaderboard. Considering that most of the Call of Duty content the group produces is in the "impractical but hilarious" vein, it's seen very rarely.
  • Angrish: Whenever excited, failing constantly, or pushed too far by trolling, he tends to let out unintelligible rage noises. However, Daithi's accent is such that he can sound like this when speaking normally.
  • Babies Ever After: As of October 19, 2020, he is the father of a child with his fiancé Aliyah.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Anything that he deems unfair or annoying tends to anger him.
    • Destroying the cocktus.
    • Making fun of him for being an anime fan can also count.
  • Butt-Monkey: One of the three main ones of this group, the others being Delirious and Terroriser.
  • Catchphrase
    • "Knife 'em on the instantkill!" (Used pretty much exclusively in older Call of Duty: Zombies videos.)
    • "Never gonna find me!"
    • "We mowin' troom!"note  (Once again mostly exclusive to older Zombies vids.)
    • "NO JOE NOOOOO!"note 
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Has a train of thought of questionable consistency, and as a result often says strange, rarely-said, or generally unintelligible things.
  • The Ditz: Generally considered the dumb one by the rest of the group.
  • Elective Unintelligible: Between his jumbled train of thought, his heavy Irish accent, and his wonky microphone, there have been times where he becomes completely unintelligible.
  • Fish Eyes: A prominent feature of his avatar, although his Gmod character's eyes point normally.
  • The Gadfly: He's quite the trolly kind too, like Vanoss. He even started out doing troll videos for Machinima on his early days of YouTube.
  • Gonk:
  • Gretzky Has the Ball: In one GTA video, to explain why his character was holding a baseball bat, Nogla claimed to be a "Swinger for the LA Lakers".
    Vanoss: (Imitating Nogla) I made so many touchdowns!
  • Hidden Depths: Can sing well, and he can also play the guitar.
  • Malaproper: Nogla often stumbles on words and/or on forming coherent sentences; this, combined with his accent, screaming in random ways, and a wonky microphone (that has a Running Gag of randomly cutting off and interrupting him mid-sentence), means just listening to him talk can be a Funny Moment.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: A good deal of his videos would imply that Nogla is an unpleasant person, but when he's not trolling rude strangers he's reasonable and friendly, such as when he's playing with SeaNanners or doing a vlog.
    • Pay Evil unto Evil: Most of those he does troll tend to have it coming, like the racist/xenophobic gamers he encounters quite often.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Played for Laughs in some of their Mario Kart 8 sessions, and it's doesn't help that Nogla plays along with it. Up to Eleven in their livestream of the game where Terroriser mentions a previous joke told to him by a subscriber that Nogla looks like a "pedophile Benedict Cumberbatch".
  • Non Sequitur: Some of his weirder quotes often end with him saying something completely unexpected and unrelated.
    Nogla: (In a game of COD Zombies) No, this game is fuckin... YEEEE.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: His name is pronounced DA-hee day NO-glah.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's mostly called either Nogla or Daithi. He very rarely, if ever, gets called by his real name David.
  • Rage Quit: While bad luck is akin to a Berserk Button for him, it only takes one truly horrible streak of bad luck for him to quit.
  • Running Gag: He has three.
    • His mic cutting him off every now and then has become this, moreso when he rages which just doubles the hilarity of it.
    • In Mario Kart 8, it's him being accused of being a pedophile by the others. Doesn't help that Nogla sometimes goes with it himself.
    • In Among Us, he presses the emergency button within seconds after the round starts.
  • The Scream: Nogla also possesses a tendency to scream in random, hilarious ways.
  • Smug Snake: When playing Mario Kart 8, he becomes this to the extent where the gang sometimes suggests kicking him from the session or call (and they actually do the latter once, to hilarious effect).
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Has quite an unusual Irish accent. In this Mario Kart 8 video, Terroriser compares it to Wario's voice, saying Wario sounds the same as Nogla whenever the latter gets angry.

    I AM WILDCAT (Tyler Wine)

A YouTuber, host of the Wildcast, and one of the main players in the group. Wildcat is best known for being a ham large enough to feed an entire village, his wheezing laugh, as well as being extremely easy to set off and then extremely enraged when he is. He has thus gained a reputation for being the angriest and "saltiest" bacon this side of YouTube.

His in-game avatar for GTA V and Gmod is a guy in a pig mask and white helmet, sometimes with a white shirt and zebra-stripe pants and sometimes with a large brown "turd" coat. Before this, he used a bag of Doritos.

  • The Ace: Is this in Fortnite: Battle Royale. He can wipe out entire teams all by himself and it's unusual for him to finish a game without nearly achieving a kill count of two digits.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: In this Mario Kart video, he complains that there's something wrong with his controller. As if on cue, Terroriser retorts that it's him, causing the others to burst into laughter. Tyler cusses Terroriser out but admits that he isn't even mad because it was a good one.
  • Animal Motifs: Pigs.
  • Atomic F-Bomb: Tends to swear loudly and often.
  • Becoming the Mask: Like Vanoss, the pig mask was once just a mask, but it became an inseparable part of his character down the line.
  • Berserk Button: Has similar ones to Nogla. He also gets annoyed if he dies/fails too much in a game.
  • The Big Guy: Both metaphorically, in his bombastic and loud nature, and literally, as he's over 6'7" (200 cm).
  • Burger Fool: Not him, but his character in The Magic Tomato works as a pizza delivery boy, and the crew uses his van to track down the eponymous tomato.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not all the time, but sometimes he gets this treatment, punctuated by him being enraged when it happens.
  • Catchphrase: He had some in some older clips, though he doesn't use them anymore.
    • "Goomba! Fuck you!"
    • "Puncake!"
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Personifies this trope even when speaking normally.
  • Cool Car: Currently owns a white Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06.
  • Doom Magnet: Bob-ombs always seem to hit him whenever they come into play.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Near the end of a match in one Gmod Guess Who video, Vanoss begins to dance within his line of sight. He turns away. Vanoss follows him while continuing to dance. He suddenly turns to face Vanoss. Does he shoot Vanoss dead? NO. He walks past Vanoss, completely oblivious. It takes Vanoss and Basically calling out to him for him to turn around and realize that Vanoss had been near him the whole time.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Has gained a reputation for getting really angry really easily. He's probably the least even-tempered of the group, and it doesn't take much to set him off.
  • Hidden Depths: Can play a (decent) drum solo.
  • Hot-Blooded: Good lord, when he gets going he’s got the very essence of the Sun flowing in his veins.
  • In the Blood: As shown during a recording that Tyler made with his father, the two are ridiculously alike to the point it can be a bit hard to tell which one of them is speaking during the video.
  • Large Ham: No pun intended considering his signature animal motif above; he is one of if not the hammiest players of the entire group.
  • Never My Fault: Has blamed some of his losses in Mario Kart 8 on the character he chose, usually Yoshi and sometimes Toad.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted, he is known as both Wildcat and his Real Life name Tyler.
  • Rage Quit: Does this occasionally when he thinks the game session is not fair at all to him or when someone trolls him way too hard.
  • Running Gag:
  • Signature Laugh: Signature wheezing, to be specific.
  • The Scream: Wildcat has a very distinctive shriek of terror.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Quite possibly the most foul-mouthed of Vanoss' crew. Even when he isn't raging, he casually throws out hammy expletives at just about everything.
  • Trash Talk: He does this to his opponents in Call of Duty.

    Lui Calibre (Lui Pablo)

Otherwise known as The Squeaker, Lui is best known for his ability to put on a voice that makes him sound like a young child, something he uses to great effect whenever he is around and often fluctuates between his normal self and a happy, childlike persona.

His GTA avatar, either way, is a man wearing a red jacket and "Pogo the Space Monkey" mask. In Gmod he has played as Sonic and BMO.

    Mini Ladd (Craig Thompson)

A Northern Irish gamer and former main group player. Loves Dank Memes. His reputation centers around his extremely bad luck in video games as well as a Running Gag of annoying neighbors wherever he goes. While still playing with the group every now and then, he has been doing more and more solo videos.However 

His Gmod avatar was a giant Mario before he started using his GTA avatar, a businessman (known as The Taxman)... wearing sandals.

  • The Ace: In GTA V racing, a contrast to his Butt-Monkey status in Mario Kart 8. This is possibly due to shells not being present.
  • Animal Motifs: Giraffes. For a period of time, Mini had amassed a collection of giraffe plushies (and one painting) that could be seen in the background of his videos (he has since given them away). Also, his Mii in Mario Kart 8 has been described as a "giraffe that needs to be put down".
  • Berserk Button:
    • Finishing last in Mario Kart 8 tends to annoy him to no end, especially if red shells are involved and especially if he gets screwed on the last lap, which has happened a lot.
    • Within his Meme Streams, any videos that have either a gnome or Ricardo Milos meme.
  • Butt-Monkey:
    • In Mario Kart 8. Not helping him is his immense bad luck and not knowing certain aspects of the game, like holding an item behind the kart.
    • He's also the Butt-Monkey when the group do "Roast Challenges", as most roasts are on him and his Forehead of Doom.
    • There's a ninety percent chance in Uno that Mini will either get screwed by stacked 2+ and 4+ cards or will draw double the cards he has just to get the one he needs. A recent match had him draw twenty-seven cards in one turn.
  • Companion Cube: He has a son! Not really. It's a bowling pin painted to look like him.
  • Cool Car: He bought a Ferrari 458 Italia to take a road trip across Ireland.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: For all of Mini's struggles when it comes to Mario Kart 8, he seems to do exceptionally well on Rainbow Road.
  • Facial Horror: His new Mii can be aptly described as a:
    Terroriser: -Giraffe that needs to be put down.
  • Forehead of Doom: The group has made a Running Gag out of his rather large forehead.
  • Hidden Depths: Can rap well. VERY well. In fact, the linked video shows him doing the supersonic part of Eminem's "Rap God" near perfectly.
  • No Sense of Direction: He repeatedly got lost in his Irish Roadtrip video.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted, he is referred to as Mini Ladd and his Real Life name, Craig.
  • Only Sane Man: Plays this role quite often when he is around.
  • Rage Quit: Notably one of the very few that never does this in the first place even when Mario Kart 8 is giving him a hard time.
  • Running Gag: In Mario Kart 8 he usually comes last in most races or if Anthony is playing, comes in 5th place. He even lampshades this one time:
    Mini: (sing-songly) I'm consistently 5th.
    • One of his more famous running gags was torturing his editor Ty Widdas with drums, cymbals, and snares. However, in 2020, after Mini began facing some serious allegations that will not be discussed here, Ty quit working for him, leaving this gag completely unusable.
  • That Came Out Wrong: Mini tends to say or take things out of context; Hilarity Ensues whenever he does this, as well as lampshading.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He's slowly getting better in Mario Kart. While he still gets screwed from time to time, he now knows things like how to pull off tricks and holding an item behind a kart, something that he would never do previously. He's also now more capable of beating Brian and Nogla if the conditions are right.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has dyed his hair pink and blue. Both times it's been as the "reward" to contributors for very successful livestreams for charity.

    BasicallyIDoWrk (Marcel Cunningham)

Basically is another YouTuber in the group, mainly doing group videos. He has a very bad ability to take losses and often does not react well to them, especially if he thinks the game is being unfair towards him. One of the few non-Caucasian players in the group, and has abused the race card whenever he is either not good at the game or losing.

His Gmod avatar was Finn from Adventure Time, before getting a skin change. He then got a more realistic model. On occasions, he wears a dino suit as well as his superhero character "Wrk the Boy Wonder."

  • Animal Motifs: Monkeys, like Lui. The actual mask is different, though.
  • Atomic F-Bomb: Expect him to do this or a Big "NO!" whenever something bad happens to him.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Run it BACK!" (this quote also gets borrowed by the others)
    • "The results are in!" (whenever he finishes last on Mario Kart 8, comes from runJDrun and is used by others but very frequently used by Marcel)
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: One of the angriest members of the group; he's very easily annoyed by his friends, and also gets angry when failing at games.
  • Happily Married: Like Brock, he is already married. And just like Brock's wife, while she plays with him on occasion, she hasn't shown up to play together with Vanoss' crew.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Subverted whenever he brings up a punny joke, it's certainly lame but actually hilarious.
  • Insistent Terminology: Insists he was a balloon artist, not a clown.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Inverted. He's called by his real name, Marcel, much more often compared to the others since "Basically" does not convert into a proper noun well.
  • Rage Quit: Does this so much, the line he says whenever he does this has become his Catchphrase.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He tends to casually swear when playing with his friends, and things only escalate when he gets mad.
  • Sore Loser: Does not take losing well, ranging from raging to asking for a re-run. Averted in one round of Golf with Friends; Wildcat (angry at not getting first) starts to make fun at Marcel for coming last, only for Marcel to brag about his score.
  • Those Two Guys: With Scotty.

    Moo Snuckel (Brock)

Another YouTuber in the group that mostly plays with them and rarely does solo videos. Probably the nicest of the group alongside Vanoss himself, remaining calm and collected and rarely swearing or engaging in underhanded tactics. But when he gets angry, all hell breaks loose.

His GTA and Gmod avatar flips between a hipster wearing gaudy clothing or a superhero eagle known as Early Bird — who always shows up last. Before this, he played as a Toon Link, which is frequently abused during GMod Hide and Seek due to its small size.

  • Animal Motifs: Eagles (sometimes he uses an eagle mask in his GTA V character) or moose (his channel page).
  • Babies Ever After: He is, as of September 16, 2017, a dad! Though the group spare no expense in making jokes about it, especially by Brian. One notable example is this:
    Moo: Oh, I'm too early.
    Terroriser: Hah, that's why you're having a baby. Oh shit!
    (Cue the resultant 'ohhhhhhh' by the rest of the guys)
  • Berserk Button: Minigolf games get on his nerves quite often. Especially ones with Brian.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Has a very long fuse and rarely swears, but him getting angry means Serious Business is happening.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: He tends to down-tone his swearing and not drop F-Bombs. This forms a sharp contrast to Wildcat. Subverted in later videos where he occasionally uses profanity, usually towards Brian.
  • Happily Married: He is married. His wife plays with him on occasion, though she has to yet appear in any of Vanoss' videos.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Subverted whenever he brings up a punny joke. It's certainly lame but actually hilarious.
  • Nice Guy: Noticeably swears, rages, and trolls much less than most of the group. Partially justified on account of having a young daughter who has been known to sneak into his office from time to time. It's serious business when he starts to get angry.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted, he is known as both Moo Snuckel and his Real Life name Brock.
  • Precision F-Strike: Very rarely swears, so if he swears, it's a good sign he is getting angry.
  • Pungeon Master: Often becomes his undoing in Prop Hunt.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Moo didn't pull anything in the scope of this trope himself, but according to Moo himself in this Golf It! session, an employee at McDonalds where Moo went to buy food at, a guy boldly joked to Moo about his name by asking "Where is Ash and Misty?" The worse part? The guy's name was Mario. Moo even mentions his frustration over it.
    Moo: You of all people should know how annoying that is, like: "Where's Luigi?" I was so pissed off.
  • The Stoic: Much like Vanoss. While far from unemotional, he has a much cooler head than most of the group sans Vanoss.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: The others have noted that his fuse grew considerably shorter after having a kid, though given that having a kid can be a good deal stressful, this might be at least partially Justified.

    Fourzer0seven (Scotty)

Fourzer0seven is another one of Vanoss' friends. While he doesn't play with Vanoss to the extent of, say, Nogla, he does play with him more often than Panda. He likes bacon pancakes (he even made some for his one million subscriber special), and is one of the calmer and quieter members of the group until his buttons are pushed.

His GTA avatar is female, while his Gmod avatar, as the others described, looks like Zac Efron and/or Justin Bieber. Before this he played as Woody

    BigJigglyPanda (Anthony Brown)

An extremely loud gamer with very unusual mannerisms and a laugh that's been compared to a dying dolphin. Likes pandas. A lot. Doesn't play GTA often, but does play with his friends on a lot of other games.

His Gmod avatar is a homeless man wearing nothing but underwear and a panda hat, and his persona is often one of an eccentric homeless man.

  • Angrish: His speech pattern completely deteriorates when he's angry. Sometimes his voice gets really sharp when he starts screaming in rage.
  • Atomic F-Bomb: Is even better at this than Scotty. At his angriest, he screeches out extremely loud noises, causing everybody to react with a mix of shock and hilarity.
  • Animal Motifs: Pandas, obviously.
  • Badass Beard
  • Berserk Button: Where do we start?
  • Born Lucky: Whenever it comes to the Pokémon TCG, he gets multiple rare cards per pack opening. That being said…
  • Born Unlucky: His luck when gaming with the others is downright abysmal, especially in Mario Kart 8.
  • Butt-Monkey: As if getting screwed over by the game isn't enough, he's also the easiest member for his friends to troll.
  • Catchphrase:
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Not generally unintelligible, but definitely strange. Cards Against Humanity really brings it out, in the worst way possible.
    • If he plays a game that's just fair for everyone, he can be pretty good at them. Currently, Human: Fall Flat brings it out in a good way by having him do a couple of things the others didn't think of (e.g. swinging off Vanoss' character to a ledge, lunging at a lantern for him and the others to use as a rope).
  • Cluster F-Bomb: His angrish moments often consist of endless chains of "fuck"s with other insults thrown at the game in-between.
  • Cool Car: He is shown driving a black second generation Cadillac CTS-V on Mini's Tennessee Roadtrip video.
  • Cosmic Plaything: If Nogla, Delirious, and Terroriser are the Butt-Monkeys of the group, then Panda has it far worse.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: During one game of mini golf when he was having trouble getting his ball in the hole, he started referring to the game designer as a "caveman" and a "mongoloid".
  • Gasshole: Some of the noises he makes have been likened to the Demogorgon.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: While generally quiet when things are going his way when he gets mad, he gets mad.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in this Super Bomberman R video, where he breaks his TV monitor. He even posted a photo of his broken TV screen on Twitter.
    • In fact, it's so bad that someone put out a compilation of him raging that consists of 20 parts and counting.
  • Hidden Depths: Is incredibly knowledgeable about the Pokémon TCG, having multiple videos dedicated to pack openings.
  • In-Series Nickname: Ohmwrecker likes to call him "Jigglesworth" or simply "Jiggles".
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
    • A literal example. He once raged so hard after losing a game that he threw his controller at his TV and then kicked a hole in it.
    • In one of the rare instances that he wins first place in Mario Kart on his own, he accidentally bites down on his thumb while celebrating, splitting the nail, and causing it to bleed everywhere.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: in Cards Against Humanity. Normally that game's cards would be bad enough, but Panda often goes out of his way to make them worse, often to the shock, horror, and hilarity of everyone else in the session.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted, he is known as both Panda and his Real Life name, Anthony.
  • Rage Quit: He has absolutely bombastic rage quits that end with him throwing gaming hardware around his room.
  • Running Gag: If he's playing Mario Kart 8, there's going to be a good chance that he will finish last.
  • Signature Laugh: Described as the wail of a dying dolphin.
  • Tranquil Fury: There have been countless times where he comes out at the very bottom and he emits no noise from his microphone, against his friends' expectations.
  • Urine Trouble: He has literally wet his pants while laughing on at least one occasion.

Closely associated gamers

    SilentDroidd (Arlan)
Droidd is a Mexican-American Youtuber who rarely plays with the group, but when he does, he usually plays GTA V with them.

While he previously isn't uploading much, he started becoming more active recently playing other games with Delirious and Basically.

    CaRtOoNz (Luke Patterson)

CaRtOoNz is one of Delirious' friends, but he also plays with Vanoss and the others on the page from time to time. Still, he mostly plays with Delirious, Bryce Games, Ohmwrecker, Gorillaphent and DeadSquirrel. Most of the games he played are of the action and epic genre like For Honor, Rainbow Six or Golf With Friends. He has an easy-going personality but can get angry very quickly.

He did not have a fixed "Gmod" avatar until he got a skin change. Thus, his new model is based on his YouTube persona, a red demon.

  • Animal Motif: Like how Delirious uses a crow to match his screams in editing, Cartoonz uses a seagull for his due to his seagull-like screams. It was even lampshaded in a Dead by Daylight video of his in which Delirious commented on how his screams sounded like a seagull after hearing him scream repeatedly as he was being chased by a killer. Presumably this video is where his Animal Motif originated from.
  • Berserk Button:
    • On a serious note, it's constantly asking about Delirious multiple times as he has made it perfectly clear that he knows him in real life, but won't say anything about him unless Delirious wants him to since he respects his friend's privacy.
    • Destroying his drone in Rainbow Six Siege really annoys him. As he often complains about it being destroyed multiple times when he isn't able to score any points.
  • Best Friends-in-Law: Averted with Delirious; Cartoonz dated his sister for eight years at one point, but they broke up. Though he's still considered to be one of if not Delirious's closest friend.
  • Big Red Devil: Which contrasts with his nice personality.
  • Blood Knight: He gets really competitive when playing against others but is generally more positive about. He even participates in multiple For Honor tournaments which really get him psyched up for other games that require his maximum effort when it involves him playing a fighter character.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Delirious in real life. So much so that he considers him his little brother.
  • Hot-Blooded: Unlike other members of the group with a Hair-Trigger Temper, he is less angry but more passionate and competitive. Even this does not preclude him from getting angry in the more traditional sense which happens a lot.
  • No Indoor Voice: One of the loudest in his group, due to his Hot-Blooded tendencies.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He is red to Delirious' blue.
  • Ship Tease: Played for comedy, but he certainly aims to please the shippers with some of his thumbnails.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: And he doesn't care about it.
  • Secret Keeper: In the sense that he's the only one out of Delirious' circle of friends that know Delirious' real identity and appearance, courtesy of having dated his sister and knowing him in real life since high school. He even ranted how people were ribbing him too much about Delirious' identity, saying that it's up to Delirious himself to reveal it and not his business to do so.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: A trademark Verbal Tic of his, usually coinciding with a punch or a gunshot.
  • Undying Loyalty: To his friends, especially with Delirious in terms of keeping his identity a secret.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He tends to favor a more skilled variety when he is playing over strength.

     gorillaphent (Mark Johnson)
Gorillaphent is a friend of CartOoNz and Delirious who appears to have known them outside of YouTube for some time before making it his official job. He was focused on becoming a professional Hearthstone player until he decided to play different games. He frequently plays horror games such as Dead by Daylight, Resident Evil, and Last Year.

His avatar is that of a hybrid between a gorilla and an elephant.

  • The Ace: Definitely when there are games where it involves him being both a killer or a survivor.
  • Animal Motif: The literal hybrid of a gorilla and an elephant.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's very kind but there are times where even he can get serious.
  • The Big Guy: He's pretty hefty amongst other players and is frequently the muscle whenever playing with his friends.
  • Catchphrase: He usually has one catcphrase whenever he catches someone off guard in Dead by Daylight and Last Year as the killer.
    • "SUCKA!"
  • The Gadfly: In Dead By Daylight no one is safe from his very skillful playing style to where he often makes the player against him Rage Quit out of pure frustration and is one of the only times he ever trolls.
  • Nice Guy: He is very kindhearted and is genuinely nice to everyone he comes across, as he doesn't troll or rage as much as the others.
  • The Quiet One: He was sort of like this for a bit as he wasn't very vocal whenever he played with Delirious, CaRtOoNz, etc. Though he increasingly became more talkative and now is very vocal amongst those he plays with.

    Ohmwrecker (Ryan)
A player with an incredibly long YouTube history (his videos go back all the way to 2006) and had played with dozens of other YouTubers over the years. He has his own page here.
  • Animal Motifs: Rabbits. He uses a man wearing a rabbit suit with a massive head for his GMod model.
  • Cool Mask: Often depicted with one based on his normal GTA look; it looks like a giant sock. Alternatively, it's his giant rabbit mask.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: His other alias, Maskedgamer, makes sense since he is always seen wearing his iconic sock-like mask.
  • Hey, That's My Line!: In this video, he mocks Terroriser by doing his Ahnold impression, which Terroriser is none too pleased with, especially when Vanoss says it's better. Ohm occasionally does it in later videos and it eventually becomes Terroriser's Berserk Button.
  • Innocently Insensitive: As friendly as Ohm can be, he is rather oblivious to how condescending he can sound when he conveys his wonder or worry for his friends in-game. It gets doubly hilarious when he just continuously rolls with it when he has no clue why any one of the guys gets mad at him for it.
  • Long Runner: Has been playing for over a decade; his earliest videos date back to 2006.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Almost always being called as Ohm, with him only revealing his real name during a Rust stream.
  • Orgasmic Combat: Ohm has a really unfortunate habit of having his moans sound incredibly sexual. It does not help that occasionally he will say things that sound either really dirty or said in a suggestive manner. More often than not, it makes his friends uncomfortable with his suggestive moans.
  • Running Gag: One can count on Ohm to say suggestive comments or sounds in videos to the point that Vanoss jokingly archives these moments.
    Ohm: (In a game of Uno) If I show my hand to you Jiggly, will you suck me?
  • Schmuck Bait: Ohm falls for these every now and then; for example, in one GTA V video, Vanoss and Lui trick him into going down an empty elevator shaft, with Ohm only realizing his mistake too late.


The other Canadian Youtuber of the group, Smii7y mostly did solo CSGO videos with his friend Kryoz (both of whom are also a part of YouTuber Fitz's circle of friends), though both him and Kryoz got hooked up with Vanoss's buddies and became a far more common sight in the group's videos recently.

Smii7y is the milk bag of memes and clairvoyance, with a near-supernatural ability in predicting the occurrence of future events.

  • Animate Inanimate Object: A bag of milk, to be specific.
  • Canada, Eh?: Like Vanoss, it's mostly averted, though not entirely; see above.
  • The Faceless: Subverted. He never showed his face himself, but in his 'Face Reveal' video, he points out all the possible times you are able to see his face.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: We do not know his real name. However, some sources online list his name as "Jaren Smith." A very brief moment in Panda's PAX East 2020 video (at around the 10 minute mark) seems to at least confirm that his first name is indeed Jaren.
  • Winds of Destiny, Change: He has a knack for calling an event shortly before it happens. He even predicted that “Yeet” would make a comeback.

    RacingCatz (Cody)
  • The Ace: in Mario Kart 8. He only makes one appearance to date, but he immediately solidified himself as the absolute best of the entire group in that one appearance, constantly finishing first even with tilt controls and being a major source of frustration to everyone playing with him due to his dominance. He also (by a combination of this trope and luck) triggered one of Wildcat's biggest and most memorable rages in his channel history.
  • Animal Motifs: Cats.
  • Commuting on a Bus: Has stopped uploading videos on his YouTube Channel, but shows up in other guys' content every now and then - such as a series of Uno videos with BigJigglyPanda, Scotty and Nogla in winter 2018-19. He is still active on his Twitter, like Lui.
  • The Faceless: So far the second known member of the group to not have done a face reveal like Delirious.
  • The Voiceless: Somewhat in his earlier sessions with everyone. Subverted in that he does speak, but not too often. However, when he does, his tone of voice is usually the calmest and least audible compared to the rest of the group. It becomes averted whenever he plays Cards Against Humanity with the others.
