Dan is one of the eggs for Element Animation and the deuteragonist of The Crack. Dan is characterized as the voice of reason in the kitchen and is usually annoyed, confused, and sometimes freaked out by Jason's strange behavior in The Crack series and in any other videos they may appear in. Although he is one of Jason's friends, he sometimes wishes that Jason was no longer there to annoy him. It was even revealed in an episode of The Crack known as "THE PLANE" that he was actually eager to push Jason off the edge of the counter, only so that he would no longer be around. Dan is voiced by Dan Lloyd.
For the entire first season of The Crack, Jason has lived in the kitchen with Dan and Chrisi. During the third episode of the crack, "Psycho!", Jason had consumed a large amount of Red Bull energy drinks, along with watching videos on the internet for hours on end, added to his already fragile brain, caused him to go completely insane. He was then placed into a mental hospital, where Dan and Chrisi watched his behavior while in solitary confinement. While in there, he had bizarre hallucinations which he was very frightened by, including three clones of him singing the Nyan Cat theme song. Jason, however, eventally was able to cope with his hallucinations, and hypnotized Dan and Chrisi until they, too, were mysteriously placed in solitary confinement. In an episode called "The Robot", Jason decided to purchase a robot that he saw on the computer screen. However, he didn't seek Dan's approval, and Dan was very frustrated with Jason's decision because the robot costed £4995.95. Within seconds, the robot was shipped to Dan and Jason's residence, and the robot was activated. Jason, however, didn't like the robot's voice, but he tinkered with it and changed it to his liking. After a week of spending time with it, Dan was still annoyed with Jason and Element Bot 1.0 because it hadn't been any real use to them and it costed him nearly £5000. Since then, Element Bot 1.0 has lived with Dan and Jason and is even part of The Crack intro. In a second season episode of The Crack, "We Weren't Hacked?", Jason was revealed to have been lost in the game of Minecraft, thus creating the series An Egg's Guide to Minecraft. It is unknown how, but he later escapes from Minecraft back into the real world, and it is after this where the Element Shorts take place (the MinecraftShorts also take place after Jason's departure).
