'''The Gregs''' are a group of four geeky teenagers in the [[Teen Girl Squad]] universe. Each Greg has a nickname to distinguish themselves from each other based on their hobbies and tastes. The two main Gregs are the rivals '''Sci-Fi Greg''' and '''D n' D Greg''', with their similarly geeky friends '''Open Source Greg''' and '''Japanese Culture Greg''' appearing on occasion to hang out with the other two. A so-called [[Regular Greg]] is not part of the group.

"Not one, not two, not three, not five, four Gregs."
This article is about the squad of characters. For the toon, see 4 Gregs. For the running gag, see Greg.

The Gregs are a group of four geeky teenagers in the Teen Girl Squad universe. Each Greg has a nickname to distinguish themselves from each other based on their hobbies and tastes. The two main Gregs are the rivals Sci-Fi Greg and D n' D Greg, with their similarly geeky friends Open Source Greg and Japanese Culture Greg appearing on occasion to hang out with the other two. A so-called Regular Greg is not part of the group. Apparently the Gregs' diverse interests include death metal, as all four of them were in the audience at Brainkrieg's performance of their Halloween single, Decomposing Pumpkins.

In an interview, Matt Chapman said Sci-Fi and D n' D Greg are some of his favorite characters. They are loosely based on gamers The Brothers Chaps knew in high school.

Sci-Fi Greg

"SENTIENT NEBULAE!"

Sci-Fi Greg (full name Science Fiction Greg) is an old boyfriend of What's Her Face, and, judging by his name, is a science fiction fan. He apparently has blonde hair and a sparse mustache. After Cheerleader died, he admits that he knew that What's Her Face would come back to him. He also claims that his experience points went into triple digits and he has since needed to keep the ladies and Valkyries off with a two-handed +3 broad sword. As these are all Dungeons and Dragons-esque terms, this claim bites D n' D Greg's style. He also attends "Cosplayover Camp" in Teen Girl Squad Issue 11, where he dresses as a spaceman. The sight of his bare chest can create a "Blinding voip", as Cheerleader discovers the hard way. When What's Her Face was whisked away by the Wireless Wizard, he and D n' D Greg agreed that if they couldn't have her, she at least had been won by a worthy adversary. He seems to be the leader of The Four Gregs in 4 Gregs, where they attend a varsity football game. In Teen Girl Squad Issue 15, he is seen at the Priggidy Prizom without a date, but it can be inferred that he was supposed to date What's Her Face (who was killed off before the prom started).

D n' D Greg

"BEHOLDERS!"

An apparent Dungeons & Dragons expert, Sci-Fi Greg's boasting using Dungeons & Dragons-esque terms bites D n' D Greg's style. He attends Cosplayover Camp in Teen Girl Squad Issue 11, where he dresses as a knight. He has long dark hair worn in a ponytail and a goatee. He thinks that wizards are sometimes so awesome, "it hurts". He hosts role playing sessions with Coach Z in his parent's basement. In 4 Gregs, D n' D Greg is revealed to have an understanding of the sport of football, claiming "fantasy football is still fantasy." In Teen Girl Squad Issue 15, he goes to the Priggidy Prizom with The Ugly One.

Open Source Greg

"Huzzah!"

A hobby computer hacker, Open Source Greg resembles a prototypical character in Gary Larson's The Far Side comic strip. He is short and overweight, with curly hair, freckles, and glasses. He tries to hack into the concession stand to get treats, but instead only interferes with a website owned by Tompkins. In Teen Girl Squad Issue 15, he sends his avatar, "xxUBUNTUFAN91xx", to the Priggidy Prizom with So and So. In Decomposing Pumpkins, he theorizes that he is the "plump kid" referred to in Brainkrieg's song, implying that his parents don't give out good candy on Halloween and/or that Brainkrieg has thrown rotting pumpkins at him in the past. However, it seems the plump kid the song spoke of was actually the band's drummer.

Japanese Culture Greg

"AKIHABARA!"

As his name implies, Japanese Culture Greg loves Japanese culture, being something of an otaku. His eyes are usually closed and his hair droops over them slightly, but when he says a Japanese word (as he is quick to do at sporadic intervals), his hair sticks up, he gets a small tear under his left eye, and his eyes open wide, resembling a cliché anime character. In Teen Girl Squad Issue 15, he is seen dating a female robot called Chizuko, before she blasts him with laser beams from her eyes.
