Hey there, Juggies, It's your old pal McJuggerNuggets here!
~ Jesse's catchphrase at the start of his vlogs.
That's what you f**king say...? That's the last thing you say to me...? Is that the video games made me this way? The games? No, dad... It was you... you... YOU MADE ME THIS WAY... YOU MADE ME THIS WAY!
~ Psycho Kid's Breakdown towards Psycho Dad.

Psycho Kid (born September 29, 1992) is the main protagonist of the McJuggerNuggets YouTube channel and it's famous series of videos known as the Psycho Series and the graphic novel Psycho-Kid vs. Psycho-Dad, the sequel to the Psycho Series, and The Devil Inside series. Despite being the main protagonist, he commits many questionable actions throughout the course of the series.

He was portrayed by Jesse Ridgway who also portrayed The Devil and Isaac Kalder.


He is the younger brother of Jeffrey Ridgway Jr. and the youngest son of Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. and Theresa Ridgway.

He makes money with YouTube videos and it is his job, but his Dad would never accept this and force him to get a "real" job and if he refuses, he destroys his consoles over and over again.

Eventually, his feud with Jeffrey becomes worse to the point where he hits Jeffery with a beer bottle to stop him from attacking Corn. This leads to Psycho Dad smashing most of his stuff including his car and Theresa divorcing him and moving to Melissa's.

Later, Jesse ends up making amends with Jeffery, but ends up cutting ties with his mother after Melissa corrupts her. His relationship with his dad also becomes worse after Psycho Dad makes him work with his equally abusive brother Chris on a farm after Jesse failed to get a job his father considered acceptable.

In the end of the series, Jesse could not take it anymore, and he decided he will kill his dad.

In the final episode Jesse comes in their house, speaking to the father for the last time which escalated in Jesse shooting him with a pistol. He ends up ruining his newfound bond with Jeffrey in the progress for not only killing their father, but forcing him to film the entire thing.

After of which, Jesse ran out of his home driving his car to escape the murder-case. 


Psycho Kid is a lazy undergraduate who has a powerful love for his video games, this is a core source of most of the Psycho videos, leading to either destruction, harm, or a conflict about his video games. Just like his brother and father, he has anger issues, and is very reactionary. He often solves his problems by lashing out on others despite him resenting his father for doing the same.

After being kicked out for destroying baseball trophies awarded to Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. decades prior, life outside The Ridgway Residence slowly visits a darker side of Jesse, as he became hellbent on revenge against Jeffrey Ridgway Jr. to the point of being greedy and very manipulative when he used his family to pull a prank on his brother, which ultimately led to being exiled from his house again & when he manipulated his cousin Tom to pull a second prank on his brother, which led to what Jesse believed was a third banishment from Larry Abraham. He has been heavily criticized for his arrogance and behavior towards friends and family by YouTubers but his Juggies still support him because they can relate to what it feels like to be in a family like his. Not helping was that Jesse got himself in trouble because of his poor decisions.

Despite the immaturity, when he was slapped by Aunt Melissa in A SLAP IN THE FACE!, he handled the situation in a surprisingly mature manner, not retaliating, but instead leaving. This shows that he can show restraint when needed. Then again, given that he chewed out his dad for manhandling Meilssa, it's possible that he did not feel comfortable hitting or verbally attacking a woman.

According to Jeffrey, Jesse has a very rebellious side of him and has issues with authority figures (which he admits but states he only has a problem if it's unjustified) as he is very disrespectful towards his father and is hesitant to do things for him. This is likely caused from his father smashing his belongings which has cause him to to hold almost zero respect for his father. That said, judging from how he sometimes disrespects his mother, Jesse does have a hard time obeying others.

Nearing the end of the series, Jesse was finding it difficult to distinguish reality from fantasy, talking and arguing with an inanimate object which he called Demma and having violent mental breakdowns when residing in the former fan mail room he was forced to record videos in, this was the final straw and ultimately caused his fathers demise.

Jesse essentially became what he had written on the walls of the former fan mail room, and what he called his own father plenty of times: a psychopath. The fact that he almost shot his brother cements this.

    • He smashes his dad's tv after being caught playing with his friend Buzz's SP by his brother Jeffrey Jr. when he was grounded for two weeks until he found a job in Psycho Kid Smashes TV. He also told his dad that "he cared more about his TV then he did him."

    • He manipulates his family into digging a hole which he uses to prank Jeffrey Jr., which leads to his door knocked down by Jeff Sr. and being exiled from the house again in Psycho Dad Busts Down Door.
    • One of the worst things Jesse has done was when he was enraged that his brother painted his car pink, he made his friends Corn and Mark submerge Jeff Jr.'s motorcycle into a pit hole full of water (which Jesse used a hose for and the same hole he pranked Jeff Jr. with) completely damaging it in Psycho Kid Submerges Motorcycle.
    • He holds up a sharp piece of wood against Jeff Jr.'s neck and gets kicked out of the Morton Building, then he crosses the Moral Event Horizon as he lights fireworks in the family's garage and at Jeff Jr. (who tries to avoid the fireworks by putting his Batman cape over him), almost destroying it with gasoline and propane tanks inside which leads to his dad throwing a hissy fit by throwing tables and ruining the Halloween food and drinks and the party being canceled in Psycho Family Halloween.
    • He smashes a Corona beer bottle over his brother's head in Psycho Brother Stomps Glasses. While this isn't as bad as most of the other stuff he did since Jeffrey was attacking Corn, he not only kept quiet about it, but never displayed remorse until his mother divorced his dad after witnessing his reaction. He even lied to his Mom and Dad about him not knowing anything about Jeffrey being quiet and refused to tell them about the incident.

  • He throws a tantrum at a store after working too hard and getting humiliated by Jeffrey Jr. (who was filming) which leads to his "arrest" by a “cop” (played by Kenny, a friend of Jeffrey Sr.), which was revealed to be a prank set up by Jeff Sr. and Jeff Jr. to teach Jesse a lesson in Psycho Kid Gets Arrested.

On top of this, he continues living on their property even after Melissa told him to leave. This lead to Melissa hiring Psycho Dad to destroy the trailer and Larry losing trust in him because he lied to him about Melissa allowing him to stay on her property.
  • When Jesse's dad saw his YouTube channel and saw his videos, Jesse lies and says Corn uploaded them, which leads to his best friend getting exiled from the house and leaving Jesse lonely until he reveals he uploaded them and reconciles his relationship with Corn the next day.
