!!Sir Daniel Fortesque
[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/medievil_3882.jpg]]

The protagonist of the series. A knight who somehow made his way to being the leader of King Peregrine's army with his tall tales of slain dragons and vanquished evil legions. He's actually quite a coward, and was the first one to be slain at the Battle of Gallowmere, felled by the very first arrow fired. The King, embarrassed by this, had Daniel buried with fully military honours and spread a story of Daniel singlehandedly destroyed Zarok and his wicked undead army. 100 years later Daniel is resurrected by Zarok's magic, giving Daniel a second chance to make amends for his ignoble death.

* TheCameo[=/=]GuestFighter: Appears as a playable character in ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale''.
* DemBones: And he's the hero!
* EyesAreUnbreakable: Loses one eye but somehow retains the other even after 100 years.
* EyeScream: Dies in the first volley of arrows, the first arrow fired lands right in his eye.
* FakeUltimateHero: Becomes a true hero by the end.
* GuileHero
* TheUnintelligible: Can only moan and babble because his jaw fell off!
** In Medievil II, however, his ability to speak seems far greater. He no longer moans, instead his speech is just kind of slurred. He almost doesn't require subtitles.
** Falls to a midway point in ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale'' where his dialogue is partially understandable but the subtitles are needed. And [[KillZone Colonel Radec's]] rival battle against him starts when Dan is unable to comply with his demands to speak clearly.

!!Zarok

A sorcerer once in the employ of King Peregrine, eventually falling out of favor with the King due to his experiments on the bodies of the dead. He was banished from the kingdom and spent years perfecting his dark arts. He created an unholy army of undead soldiers and demons, which he used to conquer many major areas of Gallowmere until the King intervenes and deploys Sir Daniel and his battalion for a titanic battle. Zarok's army was defeated but Zarok's body itself was never found. Though thought to be long dead, he returns after 100 years in a bid to take over Gallowmere once again. With a magic spell called the "Evernight", he plunged the realm into perpetual darkness and robbed the living of their free will, along with raising the dead in the process.

* BigBad: Of the original game and the remake.
* CardCarryingVillain
* EvilLaugh: It's something he's worked on for the past 100 years!
* EvilOverlord
* EvilSorcerer
* HornedHumanoid: Althought, like [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]], it could be a headdress.
* LargeHam
* LeanAndMean
* {{Necromancer}}
* NorioWakamoto: In the Japanese version
* ObviouslyEvil
* SorcerousOverlord
* VillainDecay: In the original game he was definitely evil and sinister. In the remake he's more comedic and laughably evil.

!! Lord Kardok

Zarok's general, who has risen from the grave to serve his master once more.

* ChekhovsGunman: He's mentioned in passing early on as having been killed by Canny Tim.
* CoolHorse: The horse is also undead.
* DemBones
* TheDragon
* EvilCounterpart: Kardok is what Sir Dan would be if Zarok had control over Dan the way he does the rest of the undead.
* EyeScream: He died the same way Dan did.
* FlatCharacter: He has no personality or plot involvement, he's just a boss character who is forgotten as soon as he is defeated. Being foreshadowed prevents him from being a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere.
----
!! Al-Zalam

A genie who has been cursed to live in Dan's skull as a squatter. He is only present in the PSP remake.

* DeadpanSnarker
* ExpositionFairy
* IncrediblyLamePun: He's a fan of these.
* MrExposition
* SmartBall: He's the one to get the idea of using the Dragon Armour to access the Haunted Ruins, which have been surrounded by lava courtesy of Zarok.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: He killed [[TheDragon Lord Kardock]]. ''By [[EyeScream shooting him through the eye]]''.
* NiceGuy

----

* TheBlacksmith
* DropTheHammer
* HornyVikings: In the remake, he's made to resemble one.
* MundaneUtility: He uses that big warhammer of his as a giant nut-cracker.

----
!!Woden the Mighty

A master swordsman who not only strikes fear in the hearts of his enemies... but also family pets and small children. Doesn't think very highly of Daniel and will let him know at every opportunity. Gives Daniel his mystic Broadsword (Longsword in the remake), along with the Hero's Sword in the remake out of pity.

* HeroicComedicSociopath
* {{Jerkass}}

----

* {{Gainaxing}}: In the remake.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Pulls a Life Bottle out of this in the remake.

* LastOfHisKind: Well, he was when he was alive.
* UpperClassTwit

* AnAxeToGrind
* AxCrazy
* BarbarianHero
* BloodKnight
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: He was killed attempting to fight an entire garrison, alone, with [[ImprobableWeaponUser only the spike on his helmet]]. CrazyAwesome doesn't begin to describe...
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast

----
!!Karl Sturnguard

A firm believer in defense over offense, he was nearly unstoppable with his powerful (and rechargeable!) Magick Shield, which is his gift for Daniel.

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Brutally inverted. He died choking on a sausage.
* GratuitousGerman
* MeaningfulName
* StoneWall

----
!!Dirk Steadfast

A knight possessing the all-powerful Magick Sword, which has enough power to cleave enemies into little green bits. He prefers to speak with his sword, since hardly anyone can understand his thick accent. And his Magick Sword can be Daniel's, provided he can pay enough homage to all the heroes except Megwynne beforehand.

* AttackAttackAttack: His modus operandi, apparently.
* {{BFS}}
* TheBerserker

----
!!Megwynne Stormbinder

A Celtic woman who singlehandedly stopped an invasion of her village by barbarian raiders while only armed with a pitchfork in one hand and a baby under one arm. So impressed were the Gods by her resolve and courage, they blessed her with an array of magic lightning bolts. She's one of the few heroes who has complete faith in Daniel succeeding in his quest, by lending a hand by giving him a limited stock of her lightning magic.

* ActionMom
* BoltOfDivineRetribution
* ImprobableWeaponUser
* ShockAndAwe
* TooAwesomeToUse: In the original game, once the Lightning was used up it's gone for good. In the remake, the Lightning can be refilled at the shop.

----
!!Princess Kiya

At the age of 19, Kiya was selected by the Pharaoh Ramesses to be one of his 200 wives. Fortunately for her, he was very old and died before he was able to consummate the marriage. Unfortunately she was selected to "accompany" him on his journey to the afterlife as his bride through eternity.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has blue skin, though this is just because she's a reanimated mummy.
* BandageBabe
* BareYourMidriff
* KilledOffForReal: Temporarily due to Jack the Ripper, but Dan uses a time machine to save her.
* LoveInterest: To Sir Dan.

----
!!Winston Chapelmount

Winston Chapelmount was a cheeky cockney boy of about 10 years old before he was crossed over to the spirit world. Charming and enthusiastic, he can brighten even the darkest room with his cheery, sweet nature. Unfortunately, he's also a ghost, which limits his involvement in proceedings somewhat. But Winston is all-too happy to help and eagerly joins in with the adventure whenever he feels he can be of use.

* BritishAccents: Has a distinct Cockney accent.
* BritishTeeth: It's not actually visible in-game, but in concept art he's shown to have some crooked teeth.
* ExpositionFairy: He's a replacement for the information gargoyles from the first game.

* SavePoint: His main purpose in the game is to act as a save point.
-->'''Winston:''' Alright, Dan, you've come a long way, I'd save if I was you.

----
!!Lord Palethorn

The primary antagonist of {{MediEvil II}}. Palethorn used Zarok's spell book and unleashed havoc on London. The spell resurrected the dead across the city, including the skeletons of dinosaurs housed in the museum. During the spell, Palethorn was transformed into a red-skinned demon with elongated ears and the pages of the spell book scattered across London thus making the zombies he brought to life uncontrollable. He has two henchmen, Dogman (Who transformed into an actual Dog-Man) and Mander (Who turned into a salamander-man).

* AristocratsAreEvil: Palethorn was a wealthy industrialist before he became a demon. Mander also fits the bill, but Dogman is clearly meant to be working class.
* CigarChomper: Palethorn always has a cigar in his mouth.
* DumbMuscle: Dogman.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Palethorn has one over his right eye, which is also [[MonochromaticEyes completely white]].
* LanternJawOfJustice: Palethorn is a rare evil example.
* PettingZooPeople: Dogman and Mander have been transformed into these.
* SteveBlum: Palethorn.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Palethorn tries this on Dan. It doesn't work.
-->'''Palethorn:''' Silence. Think about it, Daniel, an eternity by my side. With my powers I could put flesh onto your bones as easy as pie."
-->'''Dan:''' I'd never join you!
-->'''Palethorn:''' What was that? Could you mumble that again?

----
!!The Count

A boss in the sequel, The Count is a heavily armored vampire within Wulfrum Hall.

* BerserkButton: Dan interjects during the counts long-winded speech about how many might warriors he's taken down. This wasn't a good idea.
* KillItWithFire: He's burned alive by the mirrors in his room reflecting sunlight on to him. Which is weird, because he can't see his own reflection being a vampire.
* LargeHam: As soon as he awakes from his sleep, he gives a hammy speech about how he's walked the earth for a thousand years and beaten bigger threats than Sir Dan.

----
!!Jack the Ripper

Yes, that JackTheRipper. This interpretation of the notorious serial killer casts him as a tall, green-skinned monster with bloodied blades for fingers.

* HeroKiller: Kills Kiya, although Dan uses a time machine to reverse this and get back at Jack.
* LifeDrain: How he kills his victims, and Kiya at first.
* SerialKiller
* VillainsWantMercy: After his boss battle, he begs for this from Sir Dan.
-->'''The Ripper:''' Mercy, mercy, honorable knight, spare me!
-->'''Sir Dan:''' Nah-ah! ''(BANG!)''
