"Quiet, chill, and quick of wit, Barry’s the rock of the group. He wouldn’t say this, far too modest, but you just can’t help but think he’s so dang cool. While he’s not one for leadership, affixing Barry to a task almost guarantees it’ll be done safely and quickly."
— Barry's description during Minecraft Hardcore Season 5

Barry Kramer was the editor of and a member of Game Grumps. He started as solely editing Game Grumps episodes for Jon and Arin, but eventually took on hosting duties of his own show as well.


Barry is a Hardcore regular, only missing Minecraft 3, Minecraft 6, and Terraria 3. He is known for being a strong silent type. He works hard and benefits the team, but doesn't talk very much. While he does very well in some seasons, he often does very poorly in others. More often than not, he is either the first, second, or last to die.
