The Creatures are a group of gaming commentators who mostly live in and around the Denver, Colorado area. The Creatures consist of Kootra , SSohPKC , Sp00nerism, ImmortalHD, ZeRoyalViking, DanzNewz, UberHaxorNova, Dexterboy124, and GoldenBlackHawk. Each Creature has their own individual YouTube channel on which each respective Creature uploads their own solo playthroughs, as well as their individual POV’s on games in which more than one Creature is involved. Along with their own personal channels, the Creatures have a collective channel known as The Creature Hub where the group’s larger budgeted projects are uploaded.
The Creatures originated back in 2009 with YouTubers Ze and Sp00n meeting Kootra and his friend Junkyard129, who later met GassyMexican. The term “Creature” itself initially referred to a certain pose in the game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, where a player crouches on the ground and repeatedly changes weapons. This results in a humorous effect on the players third person model. While one of the players was doing this, another commented on how he looked like some sort of a “creature”. The name stuck with the members of the group, who began to use it as a playful insult between one another. However, the term became the official name of the small group after they created their own podcast known as Creature Talk.
Jordan “Kootra” Mathewson is the groups founder and is considered by other Creatures the leader. He has made many machinima using Team Fortress 2, Minecraft, and Mass Effect. He is known for his love of cats and the fact that he never swears. He was married on November 5, 2011 to Monica Mathewson. Kootra also known for his various catchphrases such as, “What the Brown?”, “Wha’cha?”, and “Creature Cats”.
James “Nova” Wilson Jr. Joined the creatures in 2008 and had since then has become the most popular creature. On July 30th, 2012 he hit 1 million subscribers at 8:57 PM EST and on August 3, 2013 he hit 2 million at 1:23 AM EST, as he is almost at 2.5 million as of June, 2014. His most popular videos are his scripted trolling videos which involve Nova raging, often over trivial matters. He lent his voice to be used for the “Pogoman” character in Happy Wheels.
He is also known for his alter egos which include him in his Gumby suit ( most noticeable from his Gumby dances for Creature Carl video. ), him in his Bunny Costume ( for the 2 Bunny Bust videos that where uploaded to thecreaturehub YT channel. ), Ginger Powder (
Nova’s popular series include Happy Wheels and Until I Rage.
Nick “Sp00n” Is considered the strangest and possibly most mysterious of the Creatures. Until RTX 2013 Sp00n would obscure his face with a horse head mask in many videos (leading to a joke that Sp00n was in fact, a horse). When asked if he was ever going to move in with the other Creatures he replied “only when my nipple lactates”. Sp00n’s girlfriend on a much later date would state that they would be moving to Colorado, allowing Sp00n to work with the other Creatures at their house.
Seamus “SSoH” O’Doherty is the most prolific Creature (+11,000 videos) of the group. He often doesn’t strategize during gameplay, he often attacks enemies head on and speeds through levels, missing or ignoring hidden items. Seamus has yet to the meaning behind his Youtube name and claims if any one found out he would shut his channel down. He is only referred to by his real name, after Sly’s departure he is now the second most subscribed of the Creatures.Seamus announced at RTX 2014 that his Name SSohPKC meant Sir Seamus Of Halo Psycho-Kinetic-Collaboration the first four letters originated from him playing a game called Timber and the last letters referring to the Mother/Earthbound Series.

The Creature Hub
The Creature Hub is the name given to both the collective YouTube channel that is used for the group, as well as the Creature’s website. Most of the group’s projects are shown through the YouTube as opposed to the website due to the popularity that the channel receives in comparison to the website. While the majority of gameplay is shown through each Creature’s individual YouTube channel, the Creature Hub focuses mainly on the live-action interaction between the Creatures.Most of he videos were edited by Dan but by February 2014 Spencer was hired as the Creatures editor but only for selected series such as Creature Factions.
The fanbase of the Creatures are collectively known as the Critters. The Creatures interact with their fanbase in several different ways, including panels at gaming conventions, answering fan submitted questions on YouTube, and directly talking to them on Creature Talk.
As well as being fans of the Creatures, many Critters are actively creating fan material based on the Creatures and their antics. These fan made projects can range anywhere from fan videos, to music created specifically for the Creatures, and even to erotic fanfictions.
One of the most notable fan projects for the Creatures are the songs “Life Is Beautiful (Hellberg Remix) Creature Whistle” and “Creatures Come Alive” created by HellBergMusic and Brother Blake respectively. Brother Blake has also created several songs for individual Creatures that have been used on their respective YouTube channels.
One of the more obscure sections of the fandom are the fanfictions created using the creatures as characters. A great number of these tend to be erotic in nature. The most notorious of these is titled “Sex on the Beach” by Wattapad user PlsCommentPls. The fanfic was read aloud by Nova and Immortal, the two Creatures featured in the fanfic, on their Valentines DAy Livestream via the Creature’s Twitch.tv page.
As of October 2013, a dating sim based on the Creatures, entitled “Let’s Date the Creatures”, was created and made available for download via the game’s tumblr page. The game was played by Sly as a series on his YouTube channel, and by Nova and Immortal on their Valentines’ Day Livestream.
In February of 2012, The Creatures began living together in a large house dubbed, “The Creature House”. After one year the lease ran out on the house, and a second Creature house was acquired where they Creatures stayed at until January of 2014 when the second lease ran out. Since then the Creatures have been living in apartments in and around Denver, CO.
In November of 2012 GassyMexican was removed from the Creatures due to personal reasons. ImmortalHD has since replaced him.
As of January 2014, The Creatures have been working out of an office, known as, “The Creature Office”. The group has since taken a more professional feeling towards themselves, and have begun viewing their group as a full fledged business.
On August 27, 2014 an anonymous caller notified the Littleton, CO. police department that an active shooter was present in the same office building that the Creatures work out off. This occurred simultaneously with a livestream featuring the Kootra. During the stream SWAT officers can be seen bursting into the room, ordering Kootra to the ground, and finally arresting him. Officers found no evidence of a shooter in the building and concluded that the anonymous tip was nothing more that a prank call. The entire office was evacuated while two local schools were locked down according to procedure. The police later stated that they were searching for the hoax caller who apparently called from a landline. Also during this time all of the Creatures’ personal info, both business and individual, were posted online via Paste Bin. Creatures Kootra and DanzNewz were both released from Littleton police custody later the same day.
