Game Shakers is an American television sitcom created by Dan Schneider that premiered on Nickelodeon on September 12, 2015. The series revolves around two seventh graders named Babe and Kenzie who start the multi-million-dollar title gaming company and who take on rap superstar Double G as their business partner. The series also features Triple G, Double G's son, whom the girls hire as a game consultant, and Hudson, who is a test dummy for experiments on games.
When "Sky Whale", a video game app created by Brooklyn partners Babe and Kenzie for their science project, proves to be successful, the two girls form a company called Game Shakers with the help of their friend Hudson. The three of them later befriend rapper Double G, who becomes their partner and the investor after a compromise involving the illegal use of his song "Drop Dat What". Also, Double G's son Triple G becomes the video game consultant.
- Babe (Cree Cicchino) is a 12-year-old girl and one of the creators of Game Shakers. She always does her own thing and doesn't mind stepping on someone's toes to do so. She is creative, confident, quick-witted, and fearless when it comes to making tough decisions.
- Kenzie (Madisyn Shipman) is a 12-year-old girl and one of the creators of Game Shakers. She lacks a social filter and tends to be extremely blunt, but makes up for her lackluster social skills with incredible tech knowledge.
- Triple G (Benjamin Flores, Jr.) is the son of Double G who had a lavish childhood, but all that he really wants is to be with kids his own age. He's eventually hired by Babe and Kenzie as the video game consultant. In the episode "Shark Explosion", it was revealed that his real name is Grover.
- Hudson (Thomas Kuc) is a friend of Babe and Kenzie's as well as a member of Game Shakers. Despite knowing that Hudson isn't necessarily intelligent, Babe said in "Sky Whale" that he's "cute" and will do whatever they say.
- Double G (Kel Mitchell) is a successful rapper and billionaire whose real name is Gale J. Griffin. He is impulsive, unpredictable, and determined to have as much fun and money as possible. With the help of Babe and Kenzie, he rediscovers his love for gaming, and becomes the main investor of Game Shakers. In "Revenge at Tech Fest", Double G gets a temporary trionic right arm after his right arm was badly broken following a slingslot incident caused by MeGo. In the same episode, it is mentioned that Double G has enemies in Serena Williams, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and most of the women from The View.
- Ruthless (Sheldon Bailey) is Double G's tall assistant who speaks extremely loudly.
- Bunny (Bubba Ganter) is Double G's childish assistant. Bubba Ganter also played Bunny in the Sam & Cat episode "#PeezyB", where he was also the assistant of Kel Mitchell's character Peezy B.
- Mr. Sammich (Regi Davis) is Babe, Kenzie, and Hudson's science teacher at Sugar Hill Junior High School. While he is often annoyed when Double G crashes his classes to scold Babe and Kenzie on something they did wrong, Mr. Sammich tends to cower when Bunny and Ruthless are with him.
