Master Shake is the self-proclaimed leader of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and protagonist of the series. Almost always the catalyst of what happens in each episode, Shake is very arrogant and also very hateful towards most people (especially Meatwad.) In addition he can sometimes be rather lazy and get huffy if he doesn't get his way. He has a great love of horror movies... but he is terrified of vampires and most other scary monsters.

Master Shake (commonly known as Shake; voiced by Dana Snyder) is a milk shake. He is one of the Aqua Teens and also considers himself to be the leader of the group, though never really being accepted as. He happens to be Pistachio-flavored. Like Frylock and Meatwad, Shake was a detective for the first three episodes, but inexplicably quit by "Mayhem of the Mooninites". Throughout the series Shake has had a series of different jobs such as a super hero, a song composer, a fast food server, a Boost Mobile sponsor, a United States Marine, a writer in "Last Last One Forever and Ever", and a rapper. With the exception of being a detective, Shake's careers typically only last one episode.
Shake is extremely rude, selfish, lazy, arrogant, egotistical, vain and ignorant. He often tells pointless lies to get out of doing any work, and often boasts of having fantastic skills he clearly does not have. He often plays cruel tricks on Meatwad. Shake has even gone to extreme lengths, such as committing suicide, to haunt Meatwad as a ghost, or putting Meatwad's pet cat into a microwave. Master Shake is usually always at odds with Frylock. His wrong doings usually catch up with him in the end resulting in great humiliation or him dying in some gruesome manner (yet he always comes back the next episode). Like Meatwad and Frylock, Shake does not have an official gender but he is strongly depicted as a male (though Frylock claims in the episode "Ezekial" that he has no penis). In the episode "Mail Order Bride" he, along with Carl, were both briefly married to a mail-order bride from Chechnya named Svetlana. Shake does not appear to have a family, but inAqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters it is claimed that he, along with Meatwad and Frylock, are creations of Dr. Weird. The movie also claims their father is a watermelon, and their mother is a nine-layer bean burrito. In 2010 during the "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Live" tour, series creator Dave Willis confirmed that Dr. Weird is indeed the creator of Master Shake, Frylock, Meatwad, and Chicken Bittle, making them all brothers.
In a season five episode Shake claims that he is 30 or 40 years old (despite acting like a teenager), but "Rabbot Redux" mentions that Shake is almost forty years old. Shake is not depicted as being religious, but in the episode "Der Inflatable Fuhrer" it is implied that Shake is a Scientologist. Shake had previously been depicted as a fan of Battlefield Earth (and a collector of 7-11 Cups related to the movie) in the episode "Broodwich".
Unlike Meatwad and Frylock, Shake does not have his own bedroom in the house. The only mention of this in the show was at the end of "Handbanana". Because of this, it is implied throughout the show he simply sleeps on the chair or the floor in the living room in front of the TV. Shake has no official power, except his ability to shoot a substance from his straw, and almost every thing he throws to the ground explodes.
Master Shake is a crass and abusive character whose antics usually cause trouble for the rest of the Aqua Teens. He is not very intelligent. Master Shake enjoys torturing Meatwad in many ways, mostly by playing harmful pranks on him. Master Shake can usually be found watching television, trying to upstage Frylock or people in general, or bullying Meatwad. Much like Carl, he has a raging libido and is rather straightforward with most female characters featured on the show, as he makes an effort to sleep with a number of them. He also has a fondness for the magazine, Butt Frenzy, despite his efforts to deny any interest in it when confronted about it. Since Master Shake doesn't have a bedroom, he is often regarded to sleep on the living room chair (if not watching television all night.). Shake, throughout the series, has been to able indiscrimnately acquire various expensive objects, the likes of which most likely exceed the trio's budget, from a jet engine, to superhero merchandise, a camera system, and an elaborate underground den with a bigfoot-like monster. Ezekial, a smaller milkshake bearing a quite resemblence was thought to be Shake's son, until it was revealed that Ezekial was at least 4,000 years old and that Shake never had sex. Shake has stated that he needs eighty-five gallons of liquid a day, as he was mentioned in "Dickesode". He was also seen in that episode drinking a large, close to his size, soda.
In the video game, it is revealed that Shake is thirty-nine years of age.
In the Space Ghost Coast to Coast episode, Baffler Meal, early versions of the entire Aqua Teen Hunger Force are shown. As a result, Master Shake's flavor is depicted to be that of chocolate. This was later changed due to the fact the show's creators and producers felt that chocolate resembled fecal matter.
- Being the biggest character of the show, the Aqua Teens door is shaped in his likeness.
- In Unremarkable Voyage, it was revealed that Shake does not have a brain.
- In "Ezekial" it is revealed that Shake has no penis.
- Altough many claim that Shake appears in every episode, he does not appear in Robots Everywhere (voice only), and Sirens.
