Kyle in Reversive Gaming
|Name Status||Fan Name|
|First Appearance||Fold It Like A Hamburger|
Kyle Sullivan is the character that often appears in sketches taking place in a modern setting. Kyle is often shown to be extremely unconcerned with events, and takes a very casual and careless approach to potentially dangerous situations. For example, he was unable to resist abstaining from opening fortune cookies that defined the near-future that were causing a rapidly deteriorating environment, and creating an A.I. with a rocket launcher.
In Fold It Like A Hamburger, Kyle obliviously creates a hamburger out of paper. Jon becomes mildly frustrated because of this.
In Toast Launcher, Kyle modifies a toaster to make it launch toast like a projectile weapon. It is also revealed that he made similar contraptions using CDs and VHS tapes.
In SK: Time For Adventure, Kyle acts in a hyper-active manner throughout the entire sketch, constantly hungry for adventure.
In DYI AI, Kyle creates an AI using a manual from IKEA. Ian later discovers that he also attached a rocket launcher to the machine, just because it was Step 7 in the manual. Sullivan tries to excuse himself by saying that it is humanity's fate to create the thing that destroys them, but it does not work. In the end, the AI commits suicide after downloading the internet. Sullivan happily comments that the situation took care of itself.
In RL: Professional Strategies, a team comprised of Ethan, Jefferey and Kyle work together to try to win against the other team. Their "teamwork", however, proves to be just constant yelling and ball-rushing.
In Reversive Gaming, Kyle utilizes VR technology to emulate old games. Conn gets outraged by this misuse of advanced technology.
In Comic Con: Meeting Your Heroes, Kyle mistakenly believes that every cosplayer he meets is actually the real character. Ian tries to prove him wrong, but Sullivan remains oblivious and unconvinced.
In DayZ: I Have a Gun, Ethan and Kyle constantly suspect each other of planning on betraying their would-be alliance. They eventually try to kill each other, but discover that both are out of bullets. Meanwhile, a player in the distance prepares to execute the two.
In The Stuffing of Legends, Kyle becomes extra insane after taking too much medicine. The sketch director begins to believe that he's a hunter, and runs into the wild.
In 90's Nostalgia, Kyle takes advantage of a time portal inside his basement to spawn objects from the 1990 decade. This is said to be the reason why the power rangers movie and Pokémon Go were created.
In Can't See Green, Kyle claims to have a type of colorblindness that makes green objects invisible. Ethan tries to disprove his affirmations.
In AC: Animüs, Kyle uses an IKEA Animus lookalike to try to access his ancestors' memories. What he finds, however, are just potatoes and fields, as his entire family was entirely comprised of peasants. Sullivan eventually comes up with the idea of creating a fake memory for his future children, and wears an Assassin costume to fake an assassination.
In Self-Fulfilling Idiocy 5, Kyle shows off his carelessness and repeatedly threatens to end the world before finally doing so. When told by a time traveler that if he constructs a grilled cheese sandwich, it will set off a chain of events that will destroy the earth. In order to stop it, Ian agrees to do a small chore that prevents Kyle from making it. Kyle then attempts to do it again after he leaves, so another version shows up to do another chore. He repeats this before actually making the sandwich and destroying the world when Ian gets caught up arguing with another time traveler aware of Kyle's antics.
In Unfortunate Cookies, Kyle is originally dismissive of the fortunes in fortune cookies, but gets much more interested after finding out that the fortunes can influence reality. With JP, they continue to open fortune cookies even as reality around them begins to degrade. Opening a "I think, therefore I am" cookie causes Kyle to cease to exist, but JP finds a cookie that allows him to control destiny and fixes everything.
In Spending and Saving, Kyle shows of his collection of coupons. Like traditional Kyle, he shows off how he is intelligent enough to make something complicated, in this case a system that saves him tons of money through various complementary coupons, but how he is missing the overall point. All this system seems to achieve is him ending up with a bunch of useless stuff.
In Self-Fulfilling Idiocy 3, Kyle becomes the Doctor (Who), and reveals that he has been trying to fix his past mistakes with time travel by killing his other versions. This causes horrendous errors in the continuity of the universe, spawning and/or reviving old characters. Ian eventually gets fed up with his carelessness and shoots him.
In A Vlog A Day, Kyle plays a Youtube vlogger that pranks his roommate to get views. This causes him to only have haters, however.
In PUBG: Second Place Champ, Sullivan challenges Ethan's proposal of letting him get second place and kills himself with the incoming forcefield. This is a great example of this persona's carelessness.

In First Christmas, Kyle and Ian argue about Thanksgiving. Ian claims that it is First Christmas (with the actual Christmas being "Second Christmas"), though Sullivan denies everything. Everything around him gradually becomes more Christmas-related, though, and eventually culminates with a Christmas tree appearing in his house and Christmas lights appearing all around Ian's body.
In Secret Identity Crisis, Kyle makes fun of Balloon Man and Flying Man's attitudes, claiming that they do not match their superhero status.
In Kyle Plays Magic, Kyle acts generally impatient and dismissive, attempting to get back to work on editing The Guards Themselves while Ethan tries to get him to take a break and play Magic: The Gathering. They play a single game together through Ethan's hard work to get Kyle to pay attention. Despite Kyle doing all his actions quickly and seemingly randomly to keep the whole thing short, he still wins nearly immediately.
In Pokemon Go: This Is Life Now, Sullivan discovers about the 2016 Pokemon Go frenzy. After talking a bit with Jefferey, he gets the idea of stealing Neely's phone and selling his account.
In Sneezing and Driving, Kyle keeps getting constant urges of sneezing while he is driving. Each time he sneezes, something dangerous and absurd happens, like getting teleported to the back seat or making the car appear in another lane. Both Ian and Kyle get frustrated by this.
