One-Shot Wonder


        Fan, labeled The #1 Fan, is a recurring character on Inanimate Insanity and is a contestant in Inanimate Insanity II. He is voiced by Brian Koch.


Fan is a socially awkward and quirky contestant on Inanimate Insanity II. He is the ultimate fan of Inanimate Insanity and tends to mention his blog to other contestants, usually annoying them. Although not the most physical on his team, he manages to be a smart, strategic, and imaginative one, shown when being able to manipulate Microphone to win the challenge for his team in Tri Your Best.

He is quite an eccentric oddball and is really out there in the circle of normal but he is shown that he is quite confident and self-assured in himself, being unafraid to go on his laptop to update his blog, but it annoys his teammates (particularly Paintbrush) a lot when he only focuses on other topics rather than the challenge.

He usually gets quite annoyed, irascible, and cantankerous when people get his name wrong, especially at Lightbulb, because she usually gets his name wrong and calls him "Paper".

Fan is also quite idiosyncratic and imperfect, but at the end of the day, he is a team player and always tries his best to focus on the challenges.

Official Site Bio

Fan is a huge fan! Simply put, Fan has watched every episode of Inanimate Insanity and knows many odd and interesting facts about everyone and everything about the show. Although his knowledge about the show can come in handy, it can also make him come across as creepy and an oddball, causing others to be "creeped out" by his passion.

Fan used to post blogs every so often on the Inanimate Insanity Website. (Link now directs to AnimationEpic's channel instead) The link was shown during his leg of the triathlon in Tri Your Best.
