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

The protagonist of the series, a knight who 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 Fortesque buried with full military honors and spread the story of Dan single-handedly destroying Zarok and his wicked undead army. 100 years later Daniel is resurrected by Zarok's magic, giving him a chance to make amends for his ignoble death.

* TheCameo / GuestFighter : Appears as a playable character in ''VideoGame/HotShotsGolf'' and ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale''.
* DemBones
* EyesAreUnbreakable : Zig-zagged. Dan lost his left eye over a hundred years ago, but his ''right'' eye is still intact.
* EyeScream : He died in the first few seconds of the Battle of Gallowmere, as the very first arrow fired went right in his eye.
* FakeUltimateHero : He set himself up as one in life, climbing the ranks of Gallowmere's military thanks to his fanciful tales impressing the right people. When Gallowmere actually went to war, Dan was one of the first casualties. He never went to the Hall of Heroes after his demise, but in Gallowmere his status as a 'hero' was preserved for the sake of morale.
* FirstEpisodeResurrection : Obviously.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic : ...[[RealityEnsues But are pretty handy for surviving a hail of arrows]].
** Subverted in the [[RegionalBonus Japanese version]] of the game, which gives Dan an optional helmet with cutscenes edited to feature it.
* HeroesPreferSwords : His signature weapon, and the form several of his best weapons take.
* TookALevelInBadass : Posthumously.
* TheUnintelligible : Thanks to his missing jawbone, he can only speak in inarticulate moans. [[FridgeLogic To say nothing about his missing lungs and vocal chords]].
** In ''VideoGame/MediEvil2'', 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 subtitles are still needed. And [[KillZone Colonel Radec's]] rival battle against him starts when Dan is unable to comply with his demands to speak clearly.

[[folder: Medievil / Medievil Resurrection]]

!! 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 intervened and deployed Sir Daniel and his battalion for a titanic battle. Zarok's army was defeated [[NeverFoundTheBody but Zarok's body was never accounted for]]. 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!

* {{Necromancer}}
* NorioWakamoto: In the Japanese version
* ObviouslyEvil
* SorcerousOverlord
* [[AVillainNamedZrg A villain Named Zrk]]

* EyeScream : He died the same way Dan did: With an arrow to the eye.
* 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 is all that prevents him from being a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere.

----

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

* DeadpanSnarker

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

----

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

* 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.

* BandageBabe
* BareYourMidriff

* MsFanservice : She looks pretty good for an ancient, mummified corpse.

----

!!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.

!!Lord Palethorn

The BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Medievil 2}}'', Palethorn acquired Zarok's spellbook and unleashed havoc on London. However, something went wrong with the spell, and as a result he was transformed into a red-skinned demon, and the pages of the spellbook were scattered across London, thus making the monsters he summoned almost uncontrollable. Palethorn now seeks the remaining pages of the spellbook so he can complete the spell and take over the world.

-->'''Palethorn:''' "[[spoiler: It's funny... All I ever wanted was [[IJustWantToBeSpecial a little respect]]. And [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]], of course. But really, for people to notice me. Well, [[TakingYouWithMe they'll notice this]].]]"
* OohMeAccentsSlipping : In-universe, Palethorn carries himself with an aristocratic air, but when agitated he quickly slips into his natural [[BritishAccents Cockney]] accent.
* SteveBlum
* TakingYouWithMe : [[spoiler: Dying and pinned under the wreakage of his CoolShip, Palethorn uses his last moments to speak the trope name and drop a satchel of dynamite.]]
* WeCanRuleTogether : He briefly tries this on Dan. It doesn't work.
-->'''Palethorn:''' "Think about it, Daniel; an eternity by my side. Why, with my powers, I could put flesh onto your bones as easy as pie."

-->'''Palethorn:''' "What was that? Could you ''mumble'' that again? No? Ah, well..."

----

!!The Count

One of Palethorn's associates, the Count is a powerful vampire lord residing within Wulfrum Hall.

* BerserkButton : Dan interjects during the Count's long-winded pre-battle speech. This wasn't a good idea.
--> '''The Count:''' ''"[[LargeHam YOU INTERRUPT ME]]!?"''
* BossArenaIdiocy : The Count's chamber is filled with mirrors, which are used to reflect his energy attacks and later cast burning sunlight at him.
* 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 much bigger threats than Sir Dan.

* WeakenedByTheLight : In his second phase, he gets burned alive by the mirrors in his room reflecting sunlight onto him.
