Chris Pearson (voiced by Dave Foley) is Dan's best friend and Elise's husband. Chris is also Dan's sidekick but is nothing like his cranky friend. Chris is a laid-back, happy guy, but he is still hangs out with Dan and gets caught up in his wild plots. He doesn't even mind driving Dan everywhere, doing most of his work, and never getting a thank-you, although he does have his limits, as shown in Dan vs. The Monster Under the Bed. He often helps Dan get revenge on people and can be lazy at times. Despite how much Dan mistreats him, he's always on call whenever Dan needs help with one of his revenge schemes. He is always getting hurt while Dan is getting revenge and when he accompanies him he usually unwillingly commits a crime. He often takes as much abusive from Dan as his enemies, if not more so. Chris prefers to handle his problems in a passive, indirect manner, but with Dan as his best friend this usually doesn't work out.
Chris is quite tall, has a longish face structure, light brown hair and blue eyes.
His outfit consists of a blue shirt, an orange over-shirt, green cargo pants, and white socks with brown flip-flops.
Chris's regular job seems to be in a call center, but in Dan Vs. Mall Santa, he acquires seasonal work as a snowman for the local mall's Christmas Crossing in order to earn some extra money to buy presents. At least one job he lost due to Dan and Elise's meddling in the episode Dan Vs. Golf.
