Dave is the main protagonist and lead programmer at GameAVision. He is also the center character in most episodes. Most of the episodes' problems center around, and/or are caused by, Dave's impulsive antics. He was voiced by Adam de la Peña.
Dave is a Caucasian-American who is usually seen wearing a black t-shirt with a white pixel-like symbol on it, and wears wood brown colored pants with brown shoes. On occasion he can be seen completely nude (save for his white socks and shoes).
Personality and BackgroundEdit
Dave is often described as a; hedonist, selfish, impulsive, narcissistic, flirtatious, straight forward, vulgar, lazy, and all-around irresponsible person. He has a record of causing problems at GameAvison due to his impulsive acts though his notable antics usually go unpunished, He often tends to pull pranks on his co-workers (mainly Todd) and even his boss Mr. Larrity.
Dave often acts on impulse, which often gets him, as well as his coworkers, into trouble. The only things that motivate him are dope, money, and sex.
Dave, like every other major character at GameAVision, has developed unique relationships with his coworkers.
Jerry is Dave's friend, but Dave often convinces him to succumb to sinful pleasures. Despite his relationship as “friend,” Dave often treats Jerry with little respect. He doesn't even call Jerry "not a douche" (which is the best complement he can give anyone), even though he's his best friend.
Dave's relationship with Mr. Larrity is more than just employer and employee; Dave is the only one who has demonstrated the ability to persuade Larrity on a regular basis. Larrity has more respect for Dave than any other programmer, and even refers to Dave as the “star programmer of GameAVision.”
Dave is one of the few on the show who seems to know how to manipulate Dean. He has often used Dean's stupidity to his, and others', advantage, convincing him to do whatever he wants.
Dave's relationship with Todd is roughly the same as everyone else's relationship with him; that relationship being contempt.
Dave is the only one besides Mr. Larrity that has not shown any signs of fear of Black Steve. Their relationship is the most normal-headed of any of Dave's relationships.
Dave is a devout womanizer, and therefore despises Mary's feminist attitude. Mary often tries to thwart Dave's plans, but to no avail. The closest Mary got to catching Dave with his hand in the cookie jar was in the episode Dave's Day Off, when she convinced Jerry to side with her, until Dave “proved” that he was right by throwing up.
While everyone considers Clare a whore, Dave is the only one to actually use the word on a regular basis when describing her.
As the game tester, Dave often tries to bribe Benny into approving his games (as no game can be shipped without Benny's approval). Dave despises having to bribe Benny, and at one point even put a hit out on him.
While no one except Larrity seems to have a problem with Clarence's homosexuality, Dave is the only one who has ever been seen encouraging it.
While Dave is impulsive and reckless in every episode so far, there are some that are of exceptional note.
In the first episode, entitled The Woz, Dave persuaded the majority of the staff to choose Larrity over Belecovision, setting the stage for the entire series. In fact, as soon as Woz said Larrity's name, Dave immediately declared him “perfect, because he's not Bellecovision.”
In E.T., Dave was given a VIP ticket to go see the movie E.T. The Extra Terrestrial but instead sold it to a kid waiting in line to pay for a trip to a strip club. When he returned to GameAVision, he improvised the plot, effectively causing the game to become horrible.
In Super Prison Breakout, Dave convinced his cellmate, Hondo, to break his vow of peace and kill hundreds of innocent people in an attempt to break out of prison.
In Valley of the Silicon Dolls, Dave inserts the code for a violent game of his into the teddy bear, claiming that the CPU would have trouble understanding both source codes simultaneously. He then proceeded to urinate on the bear. When Mary asked what that part accomplished, Dave responded “What part?” to which Mary replied “This is not going to end well.”
In Dean in Charge, as Dean was the temporary head of GameAVision, Dave pitched a game called “Bros,” which he had no intention of actually making, so he could get things from Dean, claiming that these things would help him design the game. Everyone else eventually followed, realizing that “he is that stupid.”
In Car Robber Sunnyvale, Dave's refusal to pay Jason Zumwalt more than five dollars for his voice led Zumwalt to blow up Jerry's car, burn down Jerry's house, and even kidnap Jerry and amputate his right hand.

- Hitler Game - Published
Known only as "Dave's Hitler Game", the game was created in Third Reich's the Charm purely for shock value to make Larrity lose his fortune and force him to more seriously consider their better games. Larrity approved the game immediately as it had everything he liked (including Hitler, child slavery, and chili-doggin') and invested a lot of money into it, going so far as to create Hitler merchandise (Hitlerdise) to create one of the biggest Hitler-themed empires since Hitler. Hitler's grandchildren issued an injunction to prevent them from publishing the game. At the beginning of the episode, the monitor displaying the game demo was censored, but the development team were all repulsed by it. At the near-end of the episode, it's revealed that their reactions weren't caused by shocking images, but rather that the gameplay and graphics were terrible, especially when compared to Bellecovision's Hitler Game. Dave's Hitler Game nearly sunk the company due to the large investment Larrity put into it.
- Michael Jackson Game - Completed by Dave; Cancelled by Larrity.
A game originally created by Michael Jackson in The Kid is Mine, but came out horribly wrong, in he which he asked Dave to make the game better, Dave accepted if he'd put him in his music video in which Michael Jackson agreed, but without Michael around to help him, he got creative and added a intro where he is seen as a hovercraft, then a tiger, and then Michael Jackson himself, in which Michael stated "that doesn't make any sense", he then created two blobs dancing with each other, later when Larrity had mistaken Michael Jackson for La Toya Jackson, this leads to a problem where he was later mauled by a tiger, been bleached in the face, got his hand chopped off, by (Todd's so-called-son) Ronnie Jean, and was caught on fire in the hospital, and when Larrity finally came to his senses and realizes the truth, he was disappointed and decided to cancel the game as he is still suffering from a broken heart.
- Bros - Approved by Dean; Project incompleted.
Created to take advantage of Dean, who was in charge of GameAVision while Larrity was in the hospital. A game about Bros, doing what bros do; drinking beer, drinking more beer, and banging chicks. Dean immediately approved the game, blindly invested lots of money into it, and brought in his Fraternity Bros from Alpha Sigma Sigma to help develop it. The project fell out of development when the Bros turned the company building into their own fraternity house.
