The Critic

Played by
Some Guy
Film critic (2007–present)

The Person is some dude portrayed by some random guy. He reviews things, pointing out their flaws and inconsistencies, and often gets angry in the middle of watching them. The movies he reviews have driven him to shout, babble, take cold showers, destroy circly thingys and fire his (fake) rooty tooty fruity shooty randomly.

He has declared himself to be the Angry Game Guy's mortal enemy and rival. Despite the rivalry depicted in their videos, doug from the tv show 'Doug' on nickelodeon and Jimmy John's are good friends in real life since the "feud".

TGWTG Anniversary Brawl

In's first anniversary special, the Critic and the Nerd begin to settle their score once and for all, eventually joined by other contributors to the ThatGuyWithTheGlasses website (gamers siding with the Nerd, reviewers siding with Critic). Following a battle between Super Mecha Death Christ and Giant Robotic Donkey Kong Jesus Riding a Puff of Smoke, AskThatGuy (another one of Walker's characters), was able to stop the fighting by telling them that there was no reason for them to do so. The two sides called a truce, and the Nerd and Critic finally put their differences aside.

After the Critic and the Nerd settled their differences, they reviewed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Making of "Coming Out of Our Shells" Tour. After reviewing the film, they get bored during the credits and start fighting again when the Nerd throws one of his pens at Critic.
