The latter

Here are the American Dad drafts. What should I add?

Deputy Director Avery Bullock, God of Classy Crassness

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Deputy_Director_Bullock_5256.png

Francine Smith, Goddess of Using Sex Appeal To Her Advantage (Francine Ling before marriage, born Francine Dawson)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Francine_Smith_3308.png
  • House: Persons of Desire (House of Love)
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her dress
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Dumb Blonde Republican Sex Kitten, Beware the Nice Ones or Bitch in Sheep's Clothing (depends on her mood), Ms. Fanservice That Exploits The Hell Out Of it, Nice Girl Though She Has Her Moments, was a Hard-Drinking Party Girl who Really Gets Around, Attracting Her Son's Friends, Can Be Smart If She's Really Determined, Cloudcuckoolander, Not So Above It All
  • Domains: Housewives, Blondes, Mothers, Attractiveness, Sex
  • Allies: Stan and Steve Smith, Liane Cartman, Amy Wong, Uncle Chan, Greg Universe, Betty Suarez, Marge Simpson
  • Headbutting Heroes with: Santa Claus and Nicholas St Nick, Kitty Forman and Son Chi-Chi
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: Roger the Alien
  • Enemies: Eric Cartman, Stewie Griffin, Robot Santa Claus and SCP-4666, Judge Claude Frollo, Tomie Kawakami, Dr Sofia Lamb
  • Pities: Dr Heinz Doofenshmirtz, Finn the Human
  • Francine Smith is the wife of Stan Smith and mother of his two children. A fairly happy housewife, she fits the image of a Blonde Republican Sex Kitten though lacks any interest in politics. She knows she's attractive and often uses that to get what she wants. While a nice person, she has her moments of being a jerk and if she's determined to do something, she can be pretty smart at it.
  • Before marrying Stan she was known to get around, all in the name of fun and partying on both sides. She's got the biggest sex garden in North America, but outside of one moment of weakness at the beginning of her marriage remains loyal to Stan. The lust sub-houses are happy to let her visit and tell tales, however made it clear she's not going to do any swinging given how Stan wouldn't care for it.
  • Has a mostly amiable relationship with fellow sitcom mother Marge Simpson. Marge is much more prudish compared to her and they do disagree with each other's parenting, but found they were similar enough to get along and both can be too overly motherly at times. Both sometimes want to take up hobbies and tasks to break the mundanity of being housewives, even if they enjoy their dayjob.
  • Sometimes discusses parenting tips and other things with Kitty Forman and Chi-Chi. They disagree with her more loopy moments, but otherwise find themselves liking Francine. Liane found her a comforting presence since she's not one to judge her slutty ways. Francine finds her son Eric Cartman intolerable however, reminding her of the time Steve became a spoiled a-hole when only she raised him, but worse. Stewie Griffin doesn't like her, as she reminds him of Lois for all that's worth.
  • Adopted by a Chinese couple. She gets along with Uncle Chan as he reminds her of her dad, Bah Bah Ling. She also ended up getting along with Amy Wong, a Martian-Chinese woman who was and still is to an extent a party girl who occasionally boasts of her general sluttiness. She seems to like Greg Universe for being a down to earth father.
  • The reason she was adopted? Her parents abandoned her as a baby, just because they a first-class ride on the airplane wouldn't allow babies. And later on after her bio-mother died, her bio-father went crazy and had his family fight to the death. Naturally, she sympathizes with Finn the Human for how much of an ass his bio-father turned out to be, and Heinz Doofenschmirtz for the multiple abuses his parents inflicted on him like leaving him to be raised by ocelots.
  • Grew up with the belief that left-handed people are evil, despite being left-handed. She grew over it. She doesn't like Frollo due to how judgmental he'd be with stuff like that, and that Frollo is quick to slut-shame her past and claim she's inspiring "unwanted lust". Francine also has a serious grudge against George Clooney for stealing her big moment, going so far as to chop off her own hand to try and kill him when it was handcuffed.
  • Like the rest of the Smith family, she wasn't on good terms meeting Santa Claus or Nicholas St North. Ever since the family shot Santa by accident he's been out for their blood. These Santas have no bad blood and aren't the same as the Bad Santa that bothers them, and will help them out with that incarnation, though the family is cautious. Robot Santa Claus and SCP-4666 proved much worse than even the Santa they know.
  • In order to keep her looks, she has to do vigorous work-outs and binging and purging. She relates to Betty Suarez to what it's like dealing with ugliness when she doesn't have her looks. By contrast, Tomie insulted her for "not being naturally beautiful" like the sociopath she is.

Is there anything that should be added to Boudica?

Boudica, Goddess of Wanting Invaders Out Of Their Homeland (Boudicca, Boadicea, Boudicea, Buddug, Rider)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/220px_boadicea_haranguing_the_britons_called_boudicca_or_boadicea_by_john_opie_4.jpg

Click here  to see her as a Rider servant
  • Potential House: Acts of War (House of War) and Plain Neutral (House of Ambiguity)
  • [tup]s: 2 (Siegfried1337, The Wikia Editor)
  • Ascencion date: May 26 (repost on May 20 and May 24)
  • Rank: Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her long spear
  • Alignment: Believed to have Black and Grey Morality by multiple historians (Chaotic Good in multiple fictional depictions of her and also from multiple historians)
  • Portfolio: Historical-Domain Character, Gets a lot of heroism upgrade in popular culture, Wants to avenge her daughters because of rape, Byronic Hero Cycle of Revenge, Roaring Rampage of Revenge, Lady of War, Will kill all people that she thinks are Romans even if they are innocent, slaves, or not Romans themselves, or any of those in between, Possibly ordered a massacre to three big cities, Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters
  • Domains: Vengeance, Rebellions, Queens, Warriors, Massacre
  • Allies: Ritsuka Fujimaru, Archer/EMIYA, Lelouch vi Britannia
  • As a Rider Servant: the British Heroes
  • On good terms with: Nero Claudius, Maximus Decimus, The Gauls (Opposition in terms of the real-life version)
  • Enemies: Every Roman that ever existed in the Pantheon, especially Emperor Nero (not really for the Rider version, though she does consider certain ones as enemies), Tywin Lannister, Gregor Cleagane
  • Boudica is the queen of the Iceni tribe who is well-known for her rebellion against the Roman Empire. She started her raging vengeance after the death of her husband when the Romans started taking everything from her, including raping her daughters. She eventually massacred three big cities of the Roman Empire and killing every citizen that lives there as she considers them enemies, even if the cities themselves are not involved with anything that happened to her. However, it ultimately led to her demise when she was killed by Suetonius and his Roman army and/or committed suicide.
  • A lot of historical figures are in heavy debate of her actions whether or not she's an Ax-Crazy murderer whose actions cannot be justified even by ancient history standards or not she is a heroic Badass in Charge who hws to do what she had to do. There are a few historical records depicting her history and it's still not known what is the cause of her death. However, because this is the Pantheon, these two depictions of Boudica could technically exist here and as long as it's well-known by a few circles, they could exist as long as they liked.
  • Hearing that the one and only Nero Claudius pretty much made her mad and started storming off to his temple to kill him before being stopped by other deities in fear of her causing chaos. The emperor doesn't seem to care upon hearing her presence and would rather stay in his temple seeing performances, although he fears that some day that he will be killed mercilessly by her even if he could technically be revived in the Pantheon considering her neverending hatred of the Pantheon.
  • She can be summoned as a Rider Servant and answer the calls of Chaldea thanks to the Incineration of Humanity. Suprisingly, she's mich more nicer as a Servant, is at least much more considerate, and acts like a big sister. Her endless rage towards the Romans also gave her the possibility to become an Avenger Servant.
    • Suprisingly as of right now, she is now at good terms with the female version of Nero. Boudica tells her that she shouldn't responsible for what happened to her people, knowing that she is not involved with what happebed. While she couldn't forgive Rome for what happened, her vengeance against them is done, while also feeling bad for her endless massacre she caused in the past, which caused Nero to tell her to not discuss it furthur as the resentment will go on forever. Ultimately, as they are Heroic Spirits and are not the living versions, they forgave each other and are civil enough to not caused an outrage. Boudica knew that if her Class is altered, it will be a completely different story.
    • She is pretty happy to see her master again and is willing to be at his side once more. Though it's pretty much hypocritical given her new friendship with the female Nero, she personally asked him to not let her be in the same room as the other Romans in the Pantheon, which he gladly accepted unless they will be facing a dangerous common treat. She is also excited to see her fellow Servant, EMIYA in the Pantheon, as they're pretty much the best chefs that Chaldea has and formed the Chaldea Kitchen Team along with Tamamo Cat and Raikou because of it.
    • She has huge respect of British Heroes, regardless of their actions, and considers them to be similar to her daughters. She is also considered to be a British folk hero despite the debate of the justification of her actions from multiple historians. Also, because of her more heartwarming personality, she is much more tolerable to be in other people's presence.
  • She's happy to meet a man named Lelouch who is born in the Britannian Empire and praises him for going against his own empire because of their endless conquest, thinking that they are the same as the Romans, and also for making the world a better place for his younger sister. Lelouch is happy to see someone that is a rebellious person like him and feels bad upon hearing what happened to her, although he thinks that her actions are just too much even by his own standards, but decided to not push it as he thinks that he might face her wrath endlessly and is smart enough to know to not do something about it.
  • She loathes Tywin Lannister as she sees his actions and behavior as similar to the Romans, and considering how much of an Abusive Parent he is, it pretty much fueled the hatred. Seeing that he is also an employer of Tywin and keeps him around because he is a Sociopathic Soldier, she also loathes Gregor Cleagane and also for killing Elia and her son.
  • Hearing that he is from Rome, it is enough for the real Boudica to hate him, without even considering of what happened to him and that Roman is not his nationality. Thankfully, while she hesitates upon hearing he is not, the Rider version actually took the time to listen to him. Even before learning he's not a Roman himself, the two found kinship learning that the Romans took everything away from them and staged a rebellion against them. She is happy that there is an actual Roman (even if he is not one) other than the female Nero that she could be friends with and promised to him that if there are any evil Romans that are lurking around, they will staged an attack together.
    • This is also the same case with the Gauls in the Pantheon. No matter how much they try to convince her that they are not like the rest of the Romans, she hates them because of her blind hatred of the Romans. The Servant version meanwhile admires their dedication to protect from the Romans, especially Asterix because despite his small stature, he is to be The Ace and thr best defender of the entire village.
  • In Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Boudica became one of Odin's Valkyries after her death. She was also considered to become the captain to replace Gunilla, however, because of how violent she is, she is not recommended.

Would you guys be okay for a few more Goosebumps deities?

  • The Masked Mutant, God of Tricking the Shapeshifter: He's built up as a terrifying shapeshifting menace in his debut book, but he gets done in because Skipper tricks him into morphing the one thing he can't keep together: liquid. Plus, it'd be interesting to have another fourth-wall breaking villain, wonder how he'd get along with Deadpool or Animal Man.

  • Keith, God of Schrödinger's Butterfly: I Live in Your Basement is regarded as a hidden gem in the original series, if only for how mind-screwingly unsettling and off the wall horrific it got. Keith even returned for the new Goosebumps comic spin offs.

RJ [tup] for the third one

[up][up][tup] for both.

Here is Billy the Kid again. Is there anything that should be added to him and Boudica above?

Henry McCarty, God Of "The Kid" Alias (Billy the Kid, William H. Bonney, Archer, Herman the Kid)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/220px_billy_the_kid_corrected.jpg
An enhanced photo of Billy the Kid, circa 1880
Click here to see him as an Archer Servant
  • Adopted from: RJ-19-CLOVIS-93
  • House: Nicknames and Renames (House of Naming)
  • Demigod; Lesser God as a Servant
  • Symbol: His hat and gun
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Outlaw, Famously known as Billy the Kid, His life has more fiction in it than facts, Has multiple legends surrounding him that he's not actually murdered at that time, Combat Pragmatist, Escape Artist, Guile Hero, The Gunslinger, Killed by his former associate in the name of justice, Sudden Name Change
  • Domains: Outlaws, Guns, Legends, Wild West
  • High Priest: "Tennessee Kid" Cooper
  • Allies: Ritsuka Fujimaru, Bill and Ted, Takeru Tenkuji/Kamen Rider Ghost
  • Rivals: John Marston, Erron Black, The Man With No Name
  • Worthy Opponent: Lucky Luke (one-sided in Billy's part), Jesse McCree
  • Enemies: Yosemite Sam, Hol Horse, the House of Justice, Akechi Mitsuhide, Marcus Junius Brutus, Fin Shepard, Dracula
  • Opposes: Lisa Simpson, Homer Simpson
  • Despite his life containing more fiction in it than reality and living a short life, Billy the Kid became one of the most famous outlaws in American history. He started his life of crime at the age of 15 by committing theft. He became famous across The Wild West thanks to the Lincoln County War. He had bounties that surrounds him and was able to escape jail multiple times. He was then eventually killed by his former associate, Patt Garrett. Billy's legend became a worldwide phenomenon when his murderer wrote a sensational biography ghostwrited by Ash Upson. The urban legends surrounding him were inspired by the biography itself.
  • The person who vouched for his ascencion is the Master of Chaldea. The outlaw thanked for vouching it, not believing that his Master will do something like this. The Master responded back that he has faith in him, just like how he has faith in every Servant that he summoned and that he does it to see them again. In return, Billy promises to fight by his side once again if he wants to.
  • Seeing that the real Billy the Kid ascended, Lucky Luke wanted to bring him to justice. The two ended up having a duel, while it is a tie, the outlaw is so impressed at the selfless cowboy, seeing that he is so good at everything he does, that he started to consider him as an Worthy Opponent rather than a sworn enemy. The heroic cowboy doesn't seem to return the sentiment however and still wants to arrest him as the outlaw still wants to pursue his life at crime.
  • He considers John Marston as a fellow rival due to being a former outlaw who is a great gunslinger and horse rider. That said, he does sympathized with the former outlaw when he hears how his life as an outlaw is All for Nothing and he performed a Heroic Sacrifice so thst his wife and son will live in peace.
  • Became enemies with Yosemite Sam, suprisingly. This is because he actually started to obey the law on not shooting with his guns in The Looney Tunes Show. This is made even worse when he actually became police officer one time. Seeing that Billy the Kid would rather stay as an outlaw in his entire life and wanting to escape jail all the time, yeah, the two would never stay friends.
  • Well it makes sense that he is a mercenary and is only in it for the money, but Billy doesn't like Hol Horse because he lacks a lot of loyalty for Dio that his associates have and how he repays the Crusaders by stealing their the one time they saved him from Enya's wrath. He also laughts at the fact that despite the fact he can control the direction at the bullets, he is so bad at aiming that he actually accidentally shot himself twice.
  • He established a rivalry with other cowboys/outlaws such as Erron Black and The Man With No Name. For the former, he is impressed with him that despite the fact he lives in a world where almost everyone has some sort of special power and is just a Badass Normal, he is able to hold off on his own. For the latter, upon hearing the latter, he wanted to hear sbout his travels seeing that he is constantly adventuring, wants to know about his duels and how he fights with his weapons, and is not disappointed. He established a Worthy Opponent relationship with Jesse McCree seeing that he is a former outlaw who Took a Level in Idealism and now wants to fight for good and justice. Seeing that he doesn't any of these acts yet, the outlaw wants to see how he will succeed on his job.
  • Of course Billy the Kid is enemies with the House of Justice for obvious reasons. Seeing that he always jail with no detailed explanation makes it hard for the police to let him remain in jail and considers him to be one of their greatest targets when they realized how great of an Escape Artist he is. He doesn't even accept any of their offers of letting him get out of jail after he got arrested as that happened to him one time.
  • Ironically, his former associate Patt Garrett killed him in the name of justice. Due to this experience, he hates those that betrayed their friends, even if there are good reasons of doing that. He hates Brutus when he assassinated Caesar when the latter is being such a good friend to the former when he actually sparred him and give him a position as a governor. This is also the same with Akechi Mitsuhide when he killed Nobunaga, when he is considered as one of the warlord's most trusted vassal before their downfall. Even if he is unsure what is the cause of the betrayal, Akechi got on the bad side of the infamous outlaw.
  • In Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Billy is the first historical figure to be "borrowed" by the duo for their history presentation. He encountered them during the salloon and asked them to play poker with two other dudes, which they happily accepted. Though Billy is caught cheating when he gsve Ted three aces. Fortunately, they managed to save Billy in time and sent him to the time-travelling booth. He continued to travel with them to "collect" more historical figures and formed a friendship with Socrates of all people and he and the other historical figures managed to perform the historical presentation in time before they all went back in their time periods. Seeing that he ascended, Bill and Ted are excited to see him again and the three actively started hanging out with each other again
  • In The Last Sharknado: It's About Time, Fin Shepard and his group accidentally helped him escape arrest by having Fin get arrested instead. Hearing that they are from the future, he wanted to travel to the future with them as he wanted to continue his theft in the modern world, believing that there are more exciting things to steal. When they gladly refused, the outlaw and Fin have a duel, before being eaten by a shark. Seeing that the latter is in the Pantheon, the two remain enemies because of that encounter, with Fin keeping an eye on Billy when he committed considering what he heard for his reasons to travel to his time.
  • In one Treehouse of Horror episode of The Simpsons, Lisa forced a gun ban after seeing Billy the Kid's grave with his real name in it with the quote "I dream of a world without guns" without knowing who he actually is. Billy and the other outlaw cohorts came back as zombies and rule over Springfield since they are the only ones with guns. Professor Frink sent Homer back in time to stop the gun ban from happening which Homer did by telling the citizens of Springfield to shoot at the zombies' graves. The zombies come back, but they eventually run away from the gunfire. As a result of this experience, Billy the Kid developed a bad relationship with both Lisa Simpson and Homer Simpson not lovong the former for the gun ban (even if she has an excuse that she didn't know is false) and the latter for shooting at his grave.
  • In Kamen Rider Ghost, he is one of Takeru's fifteen Eyecons, based on different historical figures. In this form, while transformed into Kamen Rider Ghost, he is armed with Gan Gun Saber and Bat Clock, both in Gun Mode. Combining those will create Rifer Mode. Because of this, the Kamen Rider and the outlaw got along with relative ease, with the former receiving sympathy from the latter upon hearing his fate of dying when 99 days have passed and Billy is so glad to see that he got his happy ending that he didn't commit any crimes for a day.
  • In a weird alternate universe, Dracula plans to take Billy the Kid's fiance, Betty Bentley, to turn her into a vampire to become his bride. Also, Billy is such a good guy in that universe that he teamed up with a sheriff and a doctor. He was able to kill Dracula using the silver scapel given to him by the doctor. It ended with Billy the Kid and Betty presumably living happily ever after. Although it does take place in an alternate universe, when they hear about this, Dracula and Billy became sworn enemies because of how Billy killed the vampire with Billy is willing to kill the vampire if he is interrupting on his business.

@Wikia Editor How about a much better, more known alternative to Badass and Baby? I nominate Ogami Ittō and Daigorō for the same trope. A samurai that was framed for treason and his son, who he teaches throughout his journey from the path of Meifumado. The manga also demonstrates the harsh trials of single fatherhood in a very dangerous time period, while at the same time, Ogami teaches his son the ways of his life, eventually bringing him into the same footsteps as his father. Also, its the Ur-Example.

  • In the not-too-distant future, there was a mad scientist who sought to take over the world and to get closer to that goal, he launched a hapless employee called Joel Robinson into outer space. The scientist sent Joel a bunch of bad movies to try and see if there was one so terrible it could be used for world conquest. Luckily for Joel, he built some robots, including Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot, to help him survive life in space and to make fun of the movies. After Joel escaped due to circumstances, a temp by the name of Mike Nelson was sent to space, and he too riffed the movies alongside the bots. Much later after Mike left, a space delivery guy named Jonah Heston fell for a fake SOS signal and like Joel and Mike before him, riffing movies with robots ensued after some upgrades were made to the bots. Don't try to ask if any of this makes sense (especially how they eat and breathe, and other science facts) and instead just relax.
  • A portal above the Pantheon appeared one day, bringing with it a ship that resembled a metallic bone. A group of deities made the effort to try and contact the ship to see if anything of interest would happen. They did get contact and what they managed to find was three guys and some robots talking about bad movies. It was a bit confusing initially, so Joel opted to explain to whoever was trying to contact them about their ordeal and what they normally do. The crew of the Satellite of Love was later told what the Pantheon was and that they have a bit more options in what they want to do, including deciding when and what kind of cheesy movie they want to make fun of.
  • Being a part of the Pantheon meant that some of the characters from the numerous movies the crew has watched are indeed real. Crow once made an attempt to make the slogan for the House of Magic "believe in magic or I will kill you", which didn't go anywhere (and Merlin felt the phrase was too forceful). The crew also expected Santa Claus to be around and got around to talking to him, with the conversation being about martians and demons among other things. Mike and Hamlet got into a talk about different versions of the latter's tale, with Hamlet getting very annoyed over this "Alas, Poor Who?" game show that Mike attempted to come up and host for. Even if Raleigh Becket & Mako Mori aren't from any movie the crew has watched, the pair was completely puzzled when they were being told about a story too similar to theirs.
    • This also meant that the many movie monsters that's been a part of the crew's viewing experience is real and can pose a dangerous threat to them if they're not careful. To that extent, it also meant that the crew not only learned about more adventures that Godzilla and Gamera took part of, but that the two have gotten themselves involved with fights against other giant monsters that inhabit the Pantheon. While this could in theory mean that someone can make a B-Movie out of it and pass it off as such, it also meant that the crew is in a more dangerous scenario than they were before.
      • On another note, the Satellite of Love also learned about the handful of filmmakers present in the Pantheon and the kinds of movies they've done. The crew does intend on watching some of them (and mocking them if the films turn out to be bad). Of these filmmakers, there's a bit of bad blood between the crew and Ed Wood, mainly over how the former watched some of the latter's films and made fun of how low-quality they are.
  • Having been used to watching a lot of bad movies with each other for a while, the crew became a bit interested in other deities who have spent a lot of their lives reviewing not just movies, but other forms of media. It helps that they know a bit about movie criticism or two (or more accurately, chewing out Leonard Maltin over liking both Laserblast and The Undead), and from there, they decided to visit Siskel & Ebert. The two told the crew that they have watched multiple movies good and bad throughout their lifetime and that given how the crew is able to endure bad movies (most of the time), the crew sometimes join them in watching such films to make things a bit more tolerable. It hasn't prevent a bit of riffing from time-to-time whenever Siskel and/or Ebert admit to liking something that's generally considered bad by others (i.e.: Ebert liking the live-action Garfield movies).
    • While they are generally fine with most movie critics (though they were a bit confused about Epic Voice Guy at first before meeting him in person), arguably the only one that they're concerned about is Mr. Plinkett. They find his attitude to be very off-putting, even if he makes some good points about a handful of bad films. That and the crew found his jokes to be disgusting to put it lightly.
  • Crow has tried his hand at screenwriting a few times, with his most notable "effort" being Earth vs. Soup. When the time came for it to get turned into an actual movie, it ended up being a disaster for him, due to a multitude of changes and Crow not getting any credit for it. Nevertheless, he has found some more opportunities in the Pantheon to get another screenplay in, despite others not liking what he comes up with. Then again, he and Tom have some equally weird ideas for TV shows.
  • The Invention Exchange is a quick segment that the crew has done with The Mads involving both parties showcasing some sort of weird invention to each other. There was an attempt to try and recreate this in the Pantheon with other inventors, but a number of them noticed that most the the inventions the crew has come up with tend to be strange at best and borderline useless at worst, especially since they're dealing with evil inventors far more dangerous than the Mads. It hasn't stopped subsequent Invention Exchanges from happening, those the guests for those tend to be inventors just as strange as the crew themselves.
  • Bad movies have been something that they have been used to for a long time, but they were all told of an entire race of aliens that worked on a lot of bad poetry. All of them were bewildered at the fact at the Vogons' poetry being used for torture in a way that's not too different from the Satellite of Love being sent bad movies every now and then. Even with the potential riffing material that they have on hand for those poems, the crew is still wary of the Vogons, especially since the crew was nearly pushed to breaking point by a few of the movies they saw back then and the fact that poetry rarely, if ever, offers a break between lines.
  • Dr. Zaius has more than a handful of issues with the Satellite of Love crew, especially when it comes to Mike and the Bots. Mike also has some problems with Zaius since he and the Bots ended up in a future where apes became the dominant species as a result of one of Mike's descendants falling in love with an ape. Unlike Bobo, an ape that followed the crew around that was semi-level-headed before becoming moronic and wasn't completely vile, Zaius has a lot of contempt towards humans and fully believes in ape superiority. Zaius was outraged after learning that the planet with apes that Mike and the Bots were at back then got destroyed because Mike helped the apes fix a nuclear bomb and the apes didn't know any better. That and Zaius finds the activity of mocking movies to be very meaningless.
  • Gex is someone who greatly enjoys the riffing provided by the group. Being someone who watches TV a lot, Gex often makes quips at random moments that sometimes wouldn't be too out of place when it comes to riffing cheesy movies. The crew sometimes invites Gex over to let him join in their mocking of movies and were only somewhat surprised to learn that Gex traveled through various TV shows in order to stop a villain. Gex himself has managed to find some additional quips to let out as a result of hanging out with the crew.
  • Even if they don't originate from a cheap movie, the Guinea Creatures have been mocked by the crew whenever they watch them cause some chaos on TV, comparing them to similar cheap-looking creatures form the numerous movies that they have watched back then. Despite the derision, the group does know that the damage the Guinea Creatures cause is real and not done with minature sets. They've determined that they aren't going to provoke the creatures if the crew is within distance of seeing them physically somehow.
  • SCP-2006 was a being that the crew is actually a bit wary of, if only because of information they've gotten from other sources. This thing mostly tries to scare people via transformation, but those transformations tend to come from the various cheesy movies that the crew has watched back then. Too Spooky is indeed capable of transforming into creatures far more dangerous than a cheap movie monster if in the right mindset. While the crew knows that they are simply making fun of bad movies, they know that it isn't a laughing matter if Too Spooky ends up being a genuine threat and have decided to keep their distance from the SCP.
  • Whenever Thanksgiving comes around, the crew more often than not arranges viewing parties of various cheesy movies for others to join them in on (Fear is apparently a regular participant of such given how the kinds of riffs he lets out when in watching dreams, which are presented like a movie). They'll even let others vote on what kinds of movies to watch during these sessions, but the crew has made a point that even if some movies are bad, there is a possibility that it won't be riffed due to certain graphic content the movies can have.
    • One of those Thanksgiving viewing parties had Adam West involved and the actor seems to be aware of the crew thanks to Mike and the Bots watching and mocking a movie that he starred in. That specific Thanksgiving party even had Adam West introduce that particular movie that he was in. Mike and the Bots even tried to do a play based on Batman, though that hasn't gone far in the production stage.
