Brian Doheny (Josh Blaylock), commonly referred to by his gamertag, is the primary protagonist of the Video Game High School series. An avid and enthusiastic gamer, he is launched into the spotlight after defeating the world renowned amateur player The Law on live television, being accepted into the elite gaming academy VGHS. Brian eventually falls for the captain of his team, Jenny Matrix.
Theodore "Ted" Wong (Jimmy Wong) is Brian D's best friend and roommate ever since Brian stood up for him against two bullies. Ted is the son of Freddie Wong (character), a three-time Guitar Hero world champion who teaches rhythm gaming at VGHS, and struggles to please his father by following in his footsteps.
Kimberly "Ki" Swan (Ellary Porterfield) enrolls at VGHS at the same time as Brian, and two become instant good friends. Ki is the daughter of two famous game inventors, and has expressed interest in pursuing a similar career, though also shows great skills in a variety of gaming genres and is incredibly knowledgeable.
Jenny Matrix (Johanna Braddy) is the former captain of the Junior-Varsity (JV) FPS team at VGHS and a fierce gamer, ranked as #6 in the entire school—though is able to (sometimes easily) defeat higher ranked players. She describes herself as coming from an "FPS family" and is determined to join the Varsity FPS team at VGHS. Brian D falls for her and it gets a bit awkward because she is Brians captain but in season 2 things get a little better with Jenny and Brian when Jenny tells her mom that she is dating Brian.
Lawrence "The Law" Pemberton (Brian Firenzi) is the world's #1 amateur gamer, as well as the captain of the VGHS Varsity FPS team. He is the main antagonist of the series after he is humiliated on live television by Brian D in what was supposed to be a flawless display of his skills.
Ace (Zachary Levi) is the teacher of FPS 101 in Season 1. The curator of Ace's Rules, he abides by them strictly. Sometime between Season 1 and Season 2 he leaves VGHS, and is replaced by Mary Matrix (Cynthia Watros).
Drift King (Rocky Collins), also known as DK, is a student at VGHS and the charismatic and (generally) honorable captain of the VGHS drift racing team. He first appears in Season 1, Episode 4 at Jenny's party to extort a race out of Ted Wong—which he (DK) wins—reigniting Ted's repressed love of racing. When Ted begins to experience the symptoms of "drift fever", DK reappears, attempting to persuade Ted to give up his impossible dream of becoming a great rhythm gamer and to embrace his love and talent for drift racing. DK can be briefly seen in the Season 1 finale talking with Ted, after the latter has embraced his path as a drift racer, before Ted goes to speak with Ki and his father.
Sergeant Ernie Calhoun (Harley Morenstein) is the Dean of VGHS. He does not believe that Brian D has what it takes to be a pro gamer and takes any chance he can to get Brian out of VGHS during Season 1. However, throughout Seasons 2 and 3, he is seen to become increasingly affectionate towards Brian D. Their relationship's growth is observed through his appearance Brian D's Leetmus party. Brian D's trust towards Calhoun is once again proven when he calls Calhoun to get him out of jail after having been caught drinking and riding in a Barcycle. Some may even go as far to say that Calhoun is a father figure to Brian, who's only parent (his mother) is too occupied by video games to even visit his son during Parent Visiting Day, and instead sends the family cat, Cheeto. He lives by his motto "It's all about the Game." He is is also allergic to Tuna, and is seen to be carried away due to it at Jenny Matrix's speech in Season 2.
Freddie Wong (Freddie Wong) is a three-time Guitar Hero world champion and member of the teaching staff at VGHS, teaching a class called Rhythm Method, and the father of VGHS student Ted Wong. Freddie and Ted have a complicated relationship, with Freddie being quite resentful of his son and his ineptitude at rhythm gaming. When Ted (with the help of Ki) tries to get his father's blessings for taking up drift racing instead of rhythm gaming, Freddie dissuades him from the path and tells him that it's his destiny to be a rhythm gamer. However, Ki clearly knows otherwise. She switches hers and Ted's ID cards and signs Ted up for racing. Ted does not know that Ki switched his card with hers and accidentally signs up Ki for rhythm gaming (which Freddie is presiding over). Freddie interprets this as a slap in the face and essentially disowns his son. Despite this, in the Season 1 finale, and after Ted joins the drift racing team, the two seem to be on respectable terms—with Freddie approving of Ki as well and her apparent skills at the guitar. He often neglects his son Ted Wong.
Games Dean (Benji Dolly), sometimes simply called Games, is a student and a member of JV FPS team at VGHS, Initially an antagonistic force to Brian D, Games Dean is an ambitious student who seeks to advance himself and climb the social pyramid, and proclaims to Brian during their confrontation in Episode 6 that it's "Games time"—an obvious play on his name ("Games time"/"Game's time"). Brian and Games do eventually face each other, though Brian also challenges Game's followers—making it a 3v1 match—though Jenny comes to Brian's aid and the two defeat Games and his cronies. The next day, Games gossips on his blog that Jenny and Brian are romantically involved together—creating attention about the two that Jenny doesn't want—prompting her to tell Brian that the two cannot be friends. Despite this, two episodes later, when Brian returns to VGHS to compete in the clan tryouts with the rest of the JV team, it's Games who defends Brian when several team members scold him for returning illegally (despite Calhoun's begrudging blessings)—and the two effectively bury the hatchet. When Brian wins the match for JV, Games can be seen with the others celebrating and congratulating Brian.
