|~ Dr. Insano|
Dr. Insano is the alter ego of Noah Antwiler's character "The Spoony One", played by Antwiler himself. He is a stereotypical mad scientist who mostly appears in Linkara's sketches as the main antagonist. He also appeared in the site's two year anniversary special Kickassia.
Messing with time
As described by site contributor CR, Insano is the result of years of SpoonyOne "Prime" reviewing bad movies and videogames, which apparently caused a lapse in his personality, generating two other versions: Dr. Insano and Spencer D. Bum, all of which were completely unaware of each other's existence. It remained like that until Spoony's review of Final Fantasy I, which caused an enraged Spoony to dedicate his life to control time. This, in turn, caused the future Dr. Insano to go back in time and give himself a Time Compression Remote, which caused a rift in time and space that resulted in two Insanos: Spoony's other persona, and a fully developed Insano, created by years of calculations to create the compression technology, and the trauma caused by the time travel, which severed his connection to his original self. This Insano tried to help Spoony, but his famous complaining caused the doctor to send Squall from the Final Fantasy series to assassinate Spoony, actually succeeding in his mission. However, before fighting Spoony Prime's "zombie", the Black Lantern Spoony, Linkara managed to create a clone (called "SpoonyOne β", or "SpoonyOne Beta") of Spoony's original self, along with two other clones from his other personalities, Insano and Spencer, that now reside with Spoony in his house. This Insano was far more docile than the original, but still inclined to rule the world. Dr. Insano was called "Nutjob" by AniMat on the Mad Doctor episode of The Epic Mickey Files.
However, in the Kickassia incident, it all began to happen again. Many of the site's contributors recognized Spoony as Insano, while he claimed that "it was the past". However, when the Nostalgia Critic goes mad with power, the group sees no other choice but to unleash the Insano that was still inside Spoony Beta, one that Linkara couldn't control, unlike the clone he created from Prime's DNA. This Insano nearly backstabbed the group, but was defeated by the Critic and then once again reverted into Spoony Beta. In overall, there are now three Insanos: the time-altered Insano that still wants to destroy Spoony and his clones, the newly formed split-personality of Spoony Beta, and the Insano clone that still lives with Spoony.
Although Insano is shown to be Spoony's other persona, other versions from parallel dimensions have been shown that were the Insano alternates for other Channel Awesome contributors (like a ThatGuy Insano, Film Brain Insano, MarzGurl Insano, and many others). One of these versions is actually the dimensional counterpart of Linkara, called Dr. Linksano, which became a regular threat to Linkara and all of the contributors.
Dr. Insano is the incarnation of the Mad Scientist cliché. He is completely insane and warped, but still somewhat immature and comical, which is an easy way for Linkara to defeat him if he causes trouble. He is also very proud of himself in every way, and never accepts competition in his job. Even though he is aware of Spoony, he doesn't sees him as potential threat, but only if he still reviews media like he always does.
