** CT, both her original namesake and successor had a comparatively small amount of scenes in the prequels, but when the extent of their tragic relationship was revealed that ended with one hell of a[[ TearJerker beautiful love ballad]], it surprised and saddened many that didn't think the show could be so warm and emotional.

* For all the Director's horrific war crimes, manipulation, large-scale MindRape, and callusness towards everyone, his love for Allison is his one sympathetic quality that reminds you he was once a decent human being. In the season 10 finale, his breakdown into a hopeless, broken shell of a man is one of the saddest moments in the series.

* FanPreferredCouple: Pick a Red Vs Blue fanfiction, any Red vs Blue fanfiction, if it even vaguely involves romance in some way chances are good that [[PortmanteauCoupleName Grimmons]] will either be the main, secondary or supporting couple of said fic.

** Despite his years of killing and ruthless pragmatism, Locus is a troubled soldier still suffering Post-Traumatic Stress after the Covenant war, bullied into a killing machine by his commander and Felix.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Quite a few, as to be expected of a series running since 2003.
** Lopez, among the original BGC crew. Since the ensemble cast is such that all of them could be considered main characters, save everyone's favorite Mexican robot. The sheer oddness of the concept, combined with his extremely sarcastic and fatalist mindset provide some of the best jokes in the early seasons.
** Agent York and his AI partner Delta, introduced in the "Out of Mind" miniseries. York's grumpy if amiable charm and Delta's general intelligence and NotSOAboveItAll moments made them really stand out in a series that at the time was starved for competent characters. Despite the fact that both were killed off by the end of a series that only lasted fifteen minutes, the writers seemed to agree as Delta was brought back every chance they got, giving him a significant amount of speaking lines in most seasons after.
** Sister and Junior. They were introduced in the late beginning of season 5 and didn't get much screentime or a lot to do by the writers, despite their potential to shake up the group dynamic. They were promptly PutOnABus for the longest time, furthering the sentiment as both were presumed dead for years. There's hope yet, as they're confirmed alive and well in the season 13 finale.
** CT, both her original namesake and successor had a comparatively small amount of scenes in the prequels, but when the extent of their tragic relationship was revealed that ended with one hell of a[[ TearJerker beautiful love ballad]], it surprised and saddened many that didn't think the show could be so warm and emotional.
** More or less every soldier with a name in both the New Republic and Federal Army of Chorus, and even those that aren't such as the medic girl who occasionally spoke. In particular, the rookie squad, and even of those, Katie Jensen received a lot of attention for her {{Adorkable}} qualities. The other standout is Dr. Emily Grey, who's [[GenkiGirl bubbly personality]] and [[MadScientist psychotic madness]] was beloved by the fanbase, even those that didn't like the Chorus cast.

** Carolina/Wash and Carolina/York are also very popular, even though the latter dies before he could ever reveal his feelings.



* HesJustHiding: Many fans don't buy the [[spoiler:Meta's DisneyVillainDeath]] and believe he will make a reappearance. As of Season 13, [[spoiler:Maine is confirmed dead but his empty armour is in the possession of Malcolm Hargrove.]]

Many fans don't buy the [[spoiler:Meta's DisneyVillainDeath]] and believe he will make a reappearance. As of Season 13, [[spoiler:Maine is confirmed dead but his empty armour is in the possession of Malcolm Hargrove.]] Many episodes were spent hammering in the fact that yes, he's indeed dead, and the Meta died the moment the IMP wiped out all the original AI fragments.]]
** The Freelancers get this a lot. After [[DevelopingDoomedCharacters spending two seasons characterizing them with their own flaws and friendships]] that made them very likable, they're still doomed to die in either ignoble, humiliating deaths and some fans really still hold out hope that some will make a reappearance, unlikely as it seems.
** At the end of season 13, [[spoiler: Epsilon defragments himself in order to create new AI that can manage Tucker's suit, effectively erasing him from existence]]. Since this isn't the first, second, or even third time an incarnation of [[spoiler:Leonard Church]] has died, many fans were hoping this would be another bluff. Unfortunately for said fans, he's confirmed to be KilledOffForReal.
** The same holds true for Texas/Allison, even if Epsilon Church made sure to delete her from his mind, ensuring she could never come back as a part of him. The Director seemed to have another copy lying around, but all of his works were explicitly destroyed by his own order. This is just as well, since the memory of Allison is exhausted being constantly brought back.



* IronWoobie: Tex consistently fails at whatever she's trying to do, not that it stops her from trying or being a {{Badass}} while doing so.

* {{Moe}}:
** Caboose, for his childish personality and incredible display of stupidity. His upbeat nature and suffering a lot throughout the series make him endearing rather than annoying.
** Wash, whenever he can relax and have fun, especially so in his younger days in Freelancer flashbacks.
** Jensen's just so darn cute, even if we can't see her under the armor. It's the lisp.
* SeasonalRot: While there's still some good jokes to be found, seasons 4 and 5 are considered the period of the series when it was in a rut, the Blood Gulch formula starting to get stale. The lack of plot for long stretches of time were something of a letdown after the third had many interesting developments while being just as funny.



** Despite this being jokingly referenced, Season 9 is way more popular than the previous seasons ever were.
* TheWoobie: Due to his childlike personality, Caboose gets a lot of sympathy for suffering that the show generally inflicts on its characters.

were, and the Chorus Trilogy is beloved by many fans for taking the series in a fresh direction.
* TheWoobie: ToughActToFollow: Reconstruction (season 6) was such a drastic jump in quality with it's fairly serious, DarkerAndEdgier plot and the intimidating villain of the Meta, that it's regarded as the go-to example of CerebusSyndrome, and in the eyes of several fans just couldn't be topped. Then season 10 one-upped the [[AwesomeMusic symphonic metal soundtrack]], large cast of characters of both genders, slick, cinematic cg fight scenes that looked more impressive even than 8 and 9's, and wrapping up many ongoing storylines involving the Freelancers that looked like it could've ended the series then and there. Nowadays season 13 is another contender with its back to basics approach that set out to have a new plot that had little to do with Freelancer agents, giving a fresh direction that blended drama and comedy seamlessly, and ending with the death of [[spoiler:Church]].

* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Some believe the only way Wash and Maine could actually die is by each others hands. [[spoiler:This is one of the reasons why Maine's death is called into question.]]
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Revenge is shown with most characters to A) leave them worse off than before or B) leave them unsatisfied.
** Best shown in the Recollection with [[spoiler:Wash]], who ends up imprisoned in Reconstruction before being betrayed by [[spoiler:Meta]] after the two have teamed up in Season 8.
** Another example in Season 8 (again) with [[spoiler:Tex, who ends up caught in a capture unit and then wiped from existence by Church]] Things would likely have turned out differently had she not tried going on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
** Another great example in Season 10 with Church and [[spoiler:Carolina]], who almost end up dead and eventually declare it isn't worth it after seeing [[spoiler:a broken down Director]].
** ThePowerOfFriendship receives more emphasis in later seasons. Having friends who stand by you is a good thing, no one can do everything by themselves. No matter how talented they are. The friendship between the Reds and Blues allows them to overcome their individual flaws and defeat vastly superior opponents. Meanwhile, Tex and Carolina attempted to everything by themselves and failed to accomplish their objectives.

** The "Forge World" song Sarge sings in the final part of the [[VideoGame/HaloReach Reach]] mini-series ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSiWrJHZ4sc#t=66s Enjoy it here]]).
** Also, Tucker's theme. '''Bow chicka bow wow.'''
** Violets are blue, roses are red, living like this we were already deadů
** "Red vs. Blue" from the season 8 soundtrack.

** [[spoiler:The [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO of Charon Industries]], Malcom Hargrove, aka the Chairman]], is one of the biggest villains in the series, and among its most evil. Even before his villain reveal, [[spoiler:his investigation on the Director of Project Freelancer goes too far when he releases Agent Washington, who had no hesitation to kill the Reds and Blues at that point, and the Meta, a known criminal who killed Freelancers for their equipment and A.I.s, from prison to hunt down Epsilon, who was currently in possession of the Blue Team]]. He finds alien artifacts on a planet known as Chorus, so in order to collect them, he hires a group of SpacePirates to kill everyone on the planet by manipulating them into a CivilWar. He sends ships containing cargo for the mercinaries to use to the planet, where the mercs kill everyone on the ship and steal the cargo for their own use. When the mission is in jeopardy, he threatens to kill his two lead mercs Locus and the below character by sending a new agent to finish the job. [[spoiler:When he is exposed, he decides to [[TakingYouWithMe kill as many of them as possible out of spite,]] rather than surrender.]]
** [[spoiler:Felix]], one of the CoDragons to the aforementioned character, is just as bad. When he fought in the Great War, he never showed any mercy to his enemies, even those that were trying to surrender. When one of his teammates, Locus, was broken by the war, [[spoiler:Felix]] kept him from getting help and dragged him along because he knew that he couldn't survive without his partner, despite hating him. When he was hired by his boss to create a CivilWar on the planet Chorus, the mercenary took his job too far by [[spoiler:infiltrating one the sides because he thought it would be fun for them to trust him while not knowing that he was leading them to their deaths while mocking them for trusting him]]. He also leads the raid on prison ship where the entire crew is killed and the prisoners who are not worthy to join forces with him ejected from the ship. When word comes out about the Purge, He is unable to resist being the one to personally kill off everyone, showing that he doesn't care about the orders and more about just killing for the hell of it, going as far as to sacrifice his own men just to kill everyone else. When [[spoiler:the Purge temple]] is destroyed, [[spoiler:Felix]] pointlessly goes after the Reds and Blues just so he can kill them.
