The cast of the That Guy With The Glasses second anniversary special Kickassia.

The Nostalgia Critic


  Dr. Insano: "You do realise you're just standing on your tippy-toes, don't you?"

  • Not So Harmless: In his reviews, he's a hopeless antisocial loser who never gets his way. Here...not so much.
  • Shock and Awe
  • Sociopathic Hero: Although he's decidedly less of a hero after the takeover.
  • Tear Jerker: To some, both the scene with Ma-Ti (" A president has no friends") and the shocked-puppy look after he accidentally kills Santa Christ.
  • Took a Level In Jerkass: The reason why Team TGWTG rebels against him. That and the dynamite.
  • Trigger Happy: Comes back to bite him in the ass when he panics and shoots Santa Christ.
  • Villain Protagonist
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Political power, but it still counts. As he settles more into his role as leader, his sanity slips further and further away until he decides to rig Kickassia with 20 tonnes of dynamite.

Kevin Baugh


 Nostalgia Critic: All right President Baugh, hand over Molossia and nobody gets hurt.

Baugh: I'm not the President. I'm Fritz Von Baugh, Minister of Making Things Orderly.

The Cinema Snob: But... it's so obviously you!

    • In Real Life, he has several other personae, including Paddy O'Baugh, Achmed Al-Baugh, Angus MacBaugh, and Juan de la Baugh, who make up his cabinet.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Does this at several points as he sows discord among the invaders.
  • The Quiet One/The Stoic
  • Split Personality: Debatable. But he seems surprisingly sincere at the end when (under the Fritz Von Baugh personality) he insists that he's not the President even as the group is giving the nation back to him.
  • Teleport Spam

The Nostalgia Chick



 Linkara: Joe, Joe, Joe, I know we've had our differences in the past...

Angry Joe: We have?

Linkara: Yes. I don't like you very much.

Angry Joe: (sadly) Oh...

  • I Know Mortal Kombat: His tactical mastery comes from having seen the film Patton over a hundred times.
  • The Hero: Subverted. In the videos he made following Kickassia, he portrays himself as one; calling himself "the liberator of Kickassia". Two things should be noted, however: first that a Selective Memory is totally in-character for Linkara, and second, that while technically he helped liberate Kickassia from the Critic, he was still part of a group that invaded Molassia for no reason and took it over from its rightful ruler.
  • Large Ham: He is virtually a Straight Man through most of the story, aside from Marz Gurl's near death and when he plays Patton. Then he becomes hammy with a side of ham. (Now with extra ham).
  • Manly Tears: After MarzGurl's Disney Death.
  • Only Sane Man: When it comes to the unleashing of Insano at least. He's the only one who objects to what is obviously a doomed plan. Granted this is partially just because he'd rather use his own attack plan.
    • He's also the earliest objector to the entire invasion of Kickassia, but ends up going along with it.
    • Near the end of part 6 he temporarily seems to abandon his sanity and tries to declare himself ruler of Kickassia
  • The Smart Guy: He clearly fancies himself as one, trying to set himself up as the Only Sane Man and The Strategist, although by the last episode it's clear that he was evolving into an Evil Genius.
  • The Strategist: Thanks to the power of Patton.


Dr. Insano


 "I am altering the deal, pray I do not alter it any further... ooh, another alteration! You didn't pray hard enough!"



  • Nightmare Fuel: The fridge-slamming. Doug was actually pretty scared.

 Doug: (breaking character) ... you're really going to kill me, aren't you?


The Cinema Snob

  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even he thinks playing Michael Bolton music to drive the Critic out of the government house is going too far.
  • Evil Laugh: In part 6.
  • Genre Savvy: Within seconds of being presented with all the worries the others have about N. Bison, he asks exactly how many of them have been "talking to that Baugh guy," seeing right through Baugh's apparent plot. Subverted in that The Critic really has gone that crazy.
  • Glasses Pull: In the Lock and Load Montage. Then he spins dramatically and puts them back on.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: He takes care of Kickassia's economy and gets really worried when it don't live up to the standards the group has. He tries to report it to the Nostalgia Critic about it but gets ignored, much to his frustration.
  • Non-Action Guy: Is hilariously ineffective invading Molossia, and doesn't even try to resist his arrest and banishment.
  • Oh Crap: When he sees how crazy Critic has become, and seconds before Film Brain springs a trap on him.
  • Put on a Bus: Was banished in part 4.
  • The Smart Guy/The Evil Genius: Realized the depth of the problems in Kickassia's government as early as Part 3 and was the only one really trying to do something about it. When he returns from banishment in part 6, he makes sure to take care of the Critic's dynamite first, rather than just rushing in and hoping to be able to kill or disable Critic before he can use it like everyone else.
  • Smug Snake: It's not really played up, but it's there.

 Those with brains usually have power over the brainless.


Film Brain

Marz Gurl


 Linkara: * cradling Marz Gurl after she's hit with a missile* Take comfort in my masculine arms!


Angry Joe


 Angry Joe: *Fires at fence* IT'S NO USE!!! THE BULLETS ARE JUST GOING THROUGH THE HOLES!!! *Continues firing at fence*


Handsome Tom

8-Bit Mickey

Jew Wario


Bennett The Sage


 Bennett The Sage: Heh, what do you know? The chart was upside down.

  • Ax Crazy
  • Brick Joke: The reason he deduced that while holding an Uzi, one will not die, apart from Insane Troll Logic, is that in the previous chapter, he survived one of President Baugh's cannon blasts just by ducking while holding an Uzi.
  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: His rather graphic description of how to kill the Critic makes the cast Double Take when they hear it. Try visualising it.
    • Mythology Gag: Given the kind of fanfics he reviews, is it any wonder he came out with it?
    • The outtakes have plenty more suggestions like that, including the surprisingly simple I say we kill him.
  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: Uses the barrel of his Uzi to wipe away a tear during Cinema Snob's banishment.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Apparently, when holding an Uzi, you will not die. Although granted, Sage probably can't find any other explanation for why he is alive after a near miss from President Baugh's cannon.


Paw Dugan

  • Ascended Extra: Although still small, compared with his role in the first anniversary Brawl (where he had two lines), his role here is considerably expanded.
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Howard Stern and other shock jocks. This is his official role in the Kickassian government.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Suggests playing Michael Bolton music to drive the Critic out of the Government House. This evokes an Even Evil Has Standards reaction from everyone.
  • Genre Savvy: He believes that he's doing the people of Kickassia a favour since, "when people agree with angry show hosts on the radio it makes them feel better about themselves."

Lord Kat

  • Hilarious Outtakes: Including a bit where he ad-libs how the Kickassia government will make its money from pimping out Benzaie in Vegas.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: It was originally planned for him to have a much larger role, but the commentaries revealed that his part was trimmed down to almost nothing due to his injuries during the first day of shooting.
  • Straight Man: From what little we see and commentary hints, he was possibly going to be one of the straightest characters. For example, while most of the cast was struggling with and climbing over the Insurmountable Waist High Fence, Lord Kat was simply going to take two steps over and go through the gate.
