[[folder:Main Characters]]

!!! Dan
[[quoteright:164:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dan_and_his_messy_hair_8051.PNG]]
The main "[[VillainProtagonist protagonist]]" of the series. When something bad happens to Dan, he believes that it is out to get him, or that it has gone too far, and seeks revenge immediately.

* AmbiguouslyBi ... or maybe just plain confused; one episode had him actually bring up [[GirlsHaveCooties "cooties"]] unironically, and this was ''after'' an entire episode where he had a girlfriend.
** He also calls Colby 'dreamy' and 'dreamboat' in "Family Camping Trip".
* AngryFistShake: Whenever doing his SkywardScream
* AntiHero: Type V if not VillainProtagonist.
** AntiVillain: As of the season three opener, he is Type 1 with shades of Type 3 for trying to destroy the world to kill a family of squirrels.
* AntiRoleModel
* AssholeVictim: Though there are several exceptions in certain episodes.
* AuthorAvatar: An interesting case where the writer's worst qualities are manifest in him.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassDriver
* {{Badbutt}}: Although it doesn't stop him from hitting RefugeInAudacity, it's pretty obvious that Dan would be a ''lot'' more vulgar and obscene a character if only he wasn't the star of a PG rated show on a children's network. Many fanworks will portray him as SirSwearsALot; despite being clean enough to pass the censors on a kids' network, one of his letters has been described as riddled with profanities, and he does use the word 'suck'. However, Dan Vs. isn't technically a children's show.
* BerserkButton: Don't get us started.
** In one of the funniest cases of {{Irony}} ever, calling him angry makes him angry.
--> '''Dan''': Who's angry!? How dare you! I'll strangle you!
* BigBad: He is the main conflict maker of his show. Downplayed, though since most of those who oppose him [[AssholeVictim aren't much]] [[BlackAndGrayMorality better.]] Unusual, considering that Dan's the main character.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: Dan's the little guy, Chris is the big guy.
* TheBlacksmith: Dan secretly had the ability to expertly [[ForgingScene craft arrowheads out of silver]].
* BookDumb: Neither Chris nor Elise are entirely sure if he's an idiot or a mastermind.
* BrilliantButLazy: He behaves like a stereotypical teen before getting mad at something. Afterwords, he gets lethally clever.
* TheBully
* CannotSpitItOut
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Aw c'maawwwwwn!" and "It's not about the X/X, it's about the principle!"
** "And besides, shut up."
** His favourite insult, "Jerkface".
* CosmicPlaything: Zig-zags. Usually, fate would be cruel to him just to move the plot forward.
* CrazyPrepared: An odd presentation. Dan has evacuation plans and various keys (some obtained via questionable means) stashed in various places. In spite of this, his revenge plans are often ill-formed, to the point that he forgot the drill he needed to drill into a bank's vault.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DanceBattler: Not by choice, though.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Hinted at.
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Determinator}}: It doesn't matter if his friends get in his way. It doesn't matter if you have an entire army of guards. It doesn't matter if ''[[LaserGuidedKarma karma points a laser guid at him]]''. Betray him & he ''will'' see to it that you suffer.
* [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Cheese]]: He's lactose intolerant.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Dan never resorts to homicide in his plans and is disgusted with Chris whenever he suggests it as a logical extension to Dan's current scheme.
** Its a bit zigzagged on the murder part, as even as early as the pilot, Dan occasionally does plan to kill someone. He's just disturbed when Chris suggests it.
** Dan's also rather shocked when Chris admits that he'd kill for bacon.
** And refuses to collaborate with Elise's parents in getting back at Chris, because he doesn't trust "people who'd bump off their own son-in-law." That's not what their plan entailed; they've just indicated that they'd be willing to.
** He also admits he finds himself frightening at times in 'The Boss'. "Some of the things I say are disturbing, even to me! [[EspeciallyZoidberg Especially to me.]]"
** He also turns on his boss immediately when she demands that [[spoiler: they kill Chris to cover up the fact that she's a demon]] despite the fact that Dan had been making good money, enjoyed working with her, and was excited about his long-term future if he continued to do so. Earlier in the episode, he was willing to fire Chris for these same reasons, but he drew a line without any second thoughts when he heard what the boss was asking for.
* EvilLaugh
* EvilVersusEvil
* {{Expy}}: Chris Pearson once referred to Dan as "[[CalvinAndHobbes Calvin]] as a grownup, if his life had gone horribly wrong."
* GoingCommando: In "Dan vs. the Bank" it's revealed that Dan does this on occasion. [[HoYay Interestingly]], Chris was aware of that.
* GrammarNazi: At times, especially if the works of Creator/WilliamShakespeare are involved.
* GreenEyes
* HeroicComedicSociopath
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Chris.
* HiddenDepths: Has a surprising knowledge of Shakespeare and a somewhat eclectic collection of other topics.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: He genuinly loves his cat, he has a soft spot towards Christmas and anyone who besmirches the image of Santa Clause will incur his wrath and deep (DEEP) down, he cares about Chris.
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkassHasAPoint: Depending on which episode, sometimes Dan's wild accusations have some truth in them.
* KavorkaMan: Yes, really.
* KnightTemplar
* LargeHam: The start of every episode has him doing a SkywardScream.
* LetsGetDangerous: Betraying him is a ''really'' bad idea.
* [[KindheartedCatLover More-Or-Less Kindhearted Cat Lover]]: Mr. Mumbles is the only creature in the whole world that Dan can't stay mad at.
* TheNapoleon: He's shorter then most characters in the show and doesn't like to be reminded of it.
* NoIndoorVoice
* PerpetualFrowner
* PoisonousFriend: To Chris.
* PyroManiac: His first answer to almost any problem is to burn it.
* RevengeBeforeReason: His bread and butter.
* SkywardScream: How he opens [[OnceAnEpisode each and every episode.]]
* SmarterThanYouLook: Dan is well versed in Shakespeare's works, even naming his teddy bear Brutus. In "Dan vs. George Washington", it is pointed out that Dan's knowledge can be very intricate, but random. For example when asked who carved Mount Rushmore, he gave the correct name immediately without even thinking about it, as well as the fact that his son had to complete it. However, when asked which U.S. state Mount Rushmore was in, Dan threw out a random guess, Ecuador.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Casually peppers his rabid language with Latin.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* TanLines: Dan sports a pretty strong farmer's tan due to never taking his T-shirt off.
* TheBadGuyWins[=/=]MeaninglessVillainVictory: Dan's usually successful in his goals, but almost all of his victories turn out to be pointless or make things worse than he intended.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Plain Hamburgers and Turkey Sandwiches.
* UngratefulBastard
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* VillainProtagonist: [[DependingOnTheWriter on how sympathetic he is portrayed]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Chris.
* WeirdnessMagnet

!!! Chris
[[quoteright:172:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chris_and_his_solen_expression_8689.PNG]]
Dan's bestfriend, and possibly his only friend. Usually Chris gets bossed around by Dan, and bullied into helping him.

* AuthorAvatar: Same case as Dan.
* BaconAddiction: Shows up a couple times. In "The Gym" he admits he'd kill to be able to eat bacon in his own home again, [[EvenEvilHasStandards something that even Dan finds unnerving]]. "The Mechanic" reveals that he keeps emergency bacon strips in his wallet.
* BerserkButton: [[HiddenBadass You do NOT ask Chris to make cocoa in the middle of the night, and then LEAVE before it's ready!]] '''SIT DOWN!'''
* BewareTheNiceOnes: PlayedWith in "Dan vs. Chris", "Dan vs. AngerManagement", and "Dan vs. the High School Reunion".
* BigEater: So much so, that when Dan tried to give him motivation into chasing someone by telling him to pretend they were a sandwich, he stops to ask what kind of sandwich. Implied in "Anger Management" to be brought on by his repressed anger at everything life does to him.
* ButtMonkey: Forced into Dan or Elise's antics, hated by Elise's parents, generally gets punished for Dan's punishments; he's this to a T.
* CatchPhrase: "Dan, you have done a LOT of questionable things..."
* TheChewToy
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDitz
* DoesNotLikeShoes: He wears sandals over socks. White socks, no less.
* TheDragon: Although not technically evil, he is this to Dan.
* DumbMuscle: Occasionally borders on this, and Dan treats him like it even more often. However Chris is not really muscular.
* ExtremeDoormat: So much, that at one point Chris has to actually protest that Elise and Dan are treating him like property instead of a person.
* GentleGiant
* HappilyMarried: To Elise. Not that her parents like the idea so much since they're obviously trying to get rid of him, even if it possibly means they have to kill him.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Dan.
* LampshadeHanging
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The feminine boy to Elise's masculine girl.
* MoralityChain: Subverted. Chris tries to be this for Dan, but Dan just refuses to listen. And Chris is too much of a pushover to refuse to help... ''usually''.
* NiceGuy
* OnlyFriend: To Dan.
* OnlySaneMan: He and Elise trade this role depending on the episode.
* [[spoiler:OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: In "Canada" he can transform into a bear, as part of his 1/16 Canadian heritage.]]
* VanityLicensePlate: "PUSHOVR"
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Dan.

!!! Elise
[[quoteright:111:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elise_and_her_eliseness_4318.PNG]]
Chris' wife, who doesn't like it when her husband gets involved in Dan's shenanigans, but accepts that he does not have the backbone to turn him down. She's secretly an undercover agent.

* [[ActionGirlfriend Action Wife]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBookworm
** [[spoiler:BadassDamsel]]
* BerserkButton: Do not hurt Chris in front of her, or else you'll be BoundAndGagged on a train to Guatemala.
** Do not try to sell her or someone else things over the phone at her home. She will beat up telemarketers who call her home after they've been warned.
** Calling her junior. Pretty much incites the least violent reaction from her while still pissing her off.
* BrainyBrunette / FieryRedhead: Given her reddish-brown hair, she has traits of both.
* [[spoiler:DamselInDistress:]]
** [[spoiler:''Dan Vs. Technology'': Where she's captured and brainwashed; she's rescued and has her mind restored by Dan]]
** [[spoiler:''Dan Vs. The Magician'': This time rescued by spoiler:Dan's proxy, an amateur magician.]]
** [[spoiler:In ''Dan Vs. The Dinosaur''; this time, her brother is the one who saves her]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: PlayedForLaughs.
* DeadpanSnarker: To a lesser extent when compared to Dan and Chris.
* DependingOnTheWriter: How she feels about Dan can differ from episode to episode. Sometimes [[NotSoDifferent she gets along with him]], sometimes [[FriendVersusLover she hates him]].
* {{Determinator}}: She refuses to give up winning the dance competition, no matter what gets in the way, be it Dan's revenge plot, having no alternate, or Chris' broken ankle.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Elise and her mother share the same name, so her parents sometimes call her Junior.
* ExtremeDoormat: A downplayed variant, interestingly enough. Chris gets away with a surprising amount of stuff nobody else could under her watch (Including her own family).
* FemmeFatale
* GeniusBruiser: A female example.
* GranolaGirl: She wants Chris to eat healthier.
** Justified: The show demonstrates that Chris has absolutely appalling eating habits.
* HappilyMarried: To Chris.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure
* LittleBlackDress: In ''Vs The Restaurant'' and ''Vs The Magician''.
* [[DatingWhatDaddyHates Marrying What Daddy Hates]]: Elise's dad despises Chris.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The masculine girl to Chris' feminine boy.
* MysteriousPast: When asked about what her summer camp was like, Elise reminisces her TrainingFromHell but doesn't really say this outright.
* {{Ninja}}
* NotSoAboveItAll: Make Dan female and give him better social skills. You've created Elise. For example:
** In parts of "Dan Vs. Elise's Parents", she's just as crazy, if not more so, than Dan.
** In "Dan vs New Mexico", she helped Dan destroy New Mexico because, when she was a kid, road runners stole her candy, and a cactus popped her balloon.
*** She even did a SkywardScream.
** She also copies Dan's "I'm awesome!" declaration in "Dan Vs. The Family Camping Trip".
** In ''Dan Vs. The Magician'', she has an odd phobia for all stage magicians.
** When Chris gets smacked in the face with a fencing foil, Elise all but spells out that she left the responsible party tied up on a cargo ship headed for Central America.
** When the [[EnfanteTerrible kids]] blow up the car in ''Dan Vs. The Lemonade Stand Gang'' she wanted to send the kids to North Korea to work in factories. Where no one would find them.
** When Dan was determined to ruin her dream of winning a dance competition, she sent him to Penbroke, a lawless ghost-town populated by dance-fighting monsters.
** When Dan snubs her by piloting the giant robot himself instead of letting her do it as they agreed on earlier in "The Mechanic", she enters the tournament with a hi-tech mech of her own to crush Dan.
* NotSoDifferent: With Dan.
** In "Dan Vs. Jury Duty," they both take part in the opening scream after both get served a jury summons.
*** As with MarriedWithChildren, Chris' beloved wife shares many qualities with his best friend.
* OmniDisciplinaryScientist
* PurpleEyes
* SayingTooMuch: She often says a lot of information about what she really knows that others don't. And if she's mildly confronted about it, she casually shrugs it off.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: She and Dan frequently get into fights when they're trying to take out the MonsterOfTheWeek.
* TrainingFromHell: While Dan and Chris went to a corrupted summer camp, Elise was trained as an agent by jumping over saw blades and other NoOSHACompliance material.
* [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Violently Protective Wife]]
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter" Gal]]: Claims that she was like this as a teenager, but has since grown out of it. If her obsession with making everything perfect whenever her parents visit is any indication, she really hasn't.
* WomenAreWiser: Usually played straight, but occasionally subverted. See Not So Above It All.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Loosely based on Chris Pearson's wife, Elise.
* YourSizeMayVary: Her butt keeps changing size depending on what she's wearing.

For example when asked who carved Mount Rushmore, he gave the correct name immediately without even thinking about it, as well as the fact that his son had to complete it. However, when asked which U.S. state Mount Rushmore was in, Dan threw out a random guess, Ecuador.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Casually peppers his rabid language with Latin.
* SmallNameBigEgo
* TanLines: Dan sports a pretty strong farmer's tan due to never taking his T-shirt off.
* TheBadGuyWins[=/=]MeaninglessVillainVictory: Dan's usually successful in his goals, but almost all of his victories turn out to be pointless or make things worse than he intended.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Plain Hamburgers and Turkey Sandwiches.
* UngratefulBastard
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* VillainProtagonist: [[DependingOnTheWriter on how sympathetic he is portrayed]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Chris.
* WeirdnessMagnet

!!! Chris
[[quoteright:172:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chris_and_his_solen_expression_8689.PNG]]
Dan's bestfriend, and possibly his only friend. Usually Chris gets bossed around by
Expand]]Dr. Pullum, Barry Ditmer, Imposter Dan, and bullied into helping him.

* AuthorAvatar: Same case as Dan.
* BaconAddiction: Shows up a couple times. In "The Gym" he admits he'd kill to be able to eat bacon in his own home again, [[EvenEvilHasStandards something that even Dan finds unnerving]]. "The Mechanic" reveals that he keeps emergency bacon strips in his wallet.
* BerserkButton: [[HiddenBadass You do NOT ask Chris to make cocoa in the middle of the night, and then LEAVE before it's ready!]] '''SIT DOWN!'''
* BewareTheNiceOnes: PlayedWith in "Dan vs. Chris", "Dan vs. AngerManagement", and "Dan vs. the High School Reunion".
* BigEater: So much so, that when Dan tried to give him motivation into chasing someone by telling him to pretend they were a sandwich, he stops to ask what kind of sandwich. Implied in "Anger Management" to be brought on by his repressed anger at everything life does to him.
* ButtMonkey: Forced into Dan or Elise's antics, hated by Elise's parents, generally gets punished for Dan's punishments; he's this to a T.
* CatchPhrase: "Dan, you have done a LOT of questionable things..."
* TheChewToy
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDitz
* DoesNotLikeShoes: He wears sandals over socks. White socks, no less.
* TheDragon: Although not technically evil, he is this to Dan.
* DumbMuscle: Occasionally borders on this, and Dan treats him like it even more often. However Chris is not really muscular.
* ExtremeDoormat: So much, that at one point Chris has to actually protest that Elise and Dan are treating him like property instead of a person.
* GentleGiant
* HappilyMarried: To Elise. Not that her parents like the idea so much since they're obviously trying to get rid of him, even if it possibly means they have to kill him.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Dan.
* LampshadeHanging
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The feminine boy to Elise's masculine girl.
* MoralityChain: Subverted. Chris tries to be this for Dan, but Dan just refuses to listen. And Chris is too much of a pushover to refuse to help... ''usually''.
* NiceGuy
* OnlyFriend: To Dan.
* OnlySaneMan: He and Elise trade this role depending on the episode.
* [[spoiler:OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: In "Canada" he can transform into a bear, as part of his 1/16 Canadian heritage.]]
* VanityLicensePlate: "PUSHOVR"
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Dan.

!!! Elise
[[quoteright:111:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elise_and_her_eliseness_4318.PNG]]
Chris' wife, who doesn't like it when her husband gets involved in Dan's shenanigans, but accepts that he does not have the backbone to turn him down. She's secretly an undercover agent.

* [[ActionGirlfriend Action Wife]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBookworm
** [[spoiler:BadassDamsel]]
* BerserkButton: Do not hurt Chris in front of her, or else you'll be BoundAndGagged on a train to Guatemala.
** Do not try to sell her or someone else things over the phone at her home. She will beat up telemarketers who call her home after they've been warned.
** Calling her junior. Pretty much incites the least violent reaction from her while still pissing her off.
* BrainyBrunette / FieryRedhead: Given her reddish-brown hair, she has traits of both.
* [[spoiler:DamselInDistress:]]
** [[spoiler:''Dan Vs. Technology'': Where she's captured and brainwashed; she's rescued and has her mind restored by Dan]]
** [[spoiler:''Dan Vs. The Magician'': This time rescued by spoiler:Dan's proxy, an amateur magician.]]
** [[spoiler:In ''Dan Vs. The Dinosaur''; this time, her brother is the one who saves her]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: PlayedForLaughs.
* DeadpanSnarker: To a lesser extent when compared to Dan and Chris.
* DependingOnTheWriter: How she feels about Dan can differ from episode to episode. Sometimes [[NotSoDifferent she gets along with him]], sometimes [[FriendVersusLover she hates him]].
* {{Determinator}}: She refuses to give up winning the dance competition, no matter what gets in the way, be it Dan's revenge plot, having no alternate, or Chris' broken ankle.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Elise and her mother share the same name, so her parents sometimes call her Junior.
* ExtremeDoormat: A downplayed variant, interestingly enough. Chris gets away with a surprising amount of stuff nobody else could under her watch (Including her own family).
* FemmeFatale
* GeniusBruiser: A female example.
* GranolaGirl: She wants Chris to eat healthier.
** Justified: The show demonstrates that Chris has absolutely appalling eating habits.
* HappilyMarried: To Chris.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure
* LittleBlackDress: In ''Vs The Restaurant'' and ''Vs The Magician''.
* [[DatingWhatDaddyHates Marrying What Daddy Hates]]: Elise's dad despises Chris.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: The masculine girl to Chris' feminine boy.
* MysteriousPast: When asked about what her summer camp was like, Elise reminisces her TrainingFromHell but doesn't really say this outright.
* {{Ninja}}
* NotSoAboveItAll: Make Dan female and give him better social skills. You've created Elise. For example:
** In parts of "Dan Vs. Elise's Parents", she's just as crazy, if not more so, than Dan.
** In "Dan vs New Mexico", she helped Dan destroy New Mexico because, when she was a kid, road runners stole her candy, and a cactus popped her balloon.
*** She even did a SkywardScream.
** She also copies Dan's "I'm awesome!" declaration in "Dan Vs. The Family Camping Trip".
** In ''Dan Vs. The Magician'', she has an odd phobia for all stage magicians.
** When Chris gets smacked in the face with a fencing foil, Elise all but spells out that she left the responsible party tied up on a cargo ship headed for Central America.
** When the [[EnfanteTerrible kids]] blow up the car in ''Dan Vs. The
Chef Puree, Jeff, Lemonade Stand Gang'' she wanted to send the kids to North Korea to work in factories. Where no one would find them.
** When Dan was determined to ruin her dream of winning a dance competition, she sent him to Penbroke, a lawless ghost-town populated by dance-fighting monsters.
** When Dan snubs her by piloting the giant robot himself instead of letting her do it as they agreed on earlier in "The Mechanic", she enters the tournament with a hi-tech mech of her own to crush Dan.
* NotSoDifferent: With Dan.
** In "Dan Vs. Jury Duty," they both take part in the opening scream after both get served a jury summons.
*** As with MarriedWithChildren, Chris' beloved wife shares many qualities with his best friend.
* OmniDisciplinaryScientist
* PurpleEyes
* SayingTooMuch: She often says a lot of information about what she really knows that others don't. And if she's mildly confronted about it, she casually shrugs it off.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: She and Dan frequently get into fights when they're trying to take out the MonsterOfTheWeek.
* TrainingFromHell: While Dan and Chris went to a corrupted summer camp, Elise was trained as an agent by jumping over saw blades and other NoOSHACompliance material.
* [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Violently Protective Wife]]
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter" Gal]]: Claims that she was like this as a teenager, but has since grown out of it. If her obsession with making everything perfect whenever her parents visit is any indication, she really hasn't.
* WomenAreWiser: Usually played straight, but occasionally subverted. See Not So Above It All.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Loosely based on Chris Pearson's wife, Elise.
* YourSizeMayVary: Her butt keeps changing size depending on what she's wearing.
