Scribblenauts has quite a large cast of characters to summon. Now let's write, "T-V T-R-O-P-E-S C-H-A-R-A-C-T-E-R P-A-G-E".


[[folder: Main Characters]]

The hero of the series. A young boy with a magic notebook, he joined the Scribblenauts organization so he could become a Scribblenaut. This sends him around the world on a quest around the world to gather the "Starites", special stars created by fulfilling his missions.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: Unlike the astronauts of the series, he is perfectly fine when traveling to other planets, and does not need any special equipment.
* CharacterDevelopment: Unmasked shows that he learned his lesson from Unlimited (storywise at least, there's probably nothing stopping the player from being a jackass).
* ChildSoldiers: He has been sent to war several times.
* InstantExpert: After spawning an object, he instantly becomes a master of using it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Maxwell doesn't get much in terms of characterization, but the plot of Scribblenauts Unlimited is kicked off when he plays a trick on a hungry beggar and conjures him a rotten apple, and he's trying to make amends.
* KidHero
* MadScientist: In one level, he decides to make a zombie out of random body parts.
* MasterOfDisguise: He has a variety of disguises, using both avatars and items.
* NiceHat: His rooster helmet, which was given out as a pre-order bonus. In ''Unlimited'', it's revealed that his entire family wears one of their own.
* NoodleImplements: Write ANYTHING.
* RealityWarper: Thanks to his magical notebook, he has godlike power.
* TookALevelInBadass: In the second game, he gained the power to use adjectives, becoming even stronger than before. He also got numerous other abilities, such as unlimited ammo.


Maxwell's evil twin, who also wields a Scribblenaut notebook. Rather than using it to help people like Maxwell, he uses it to cause chaos and destruction.
* AscendedExtra: From one-off appearance to [[spoiler:FinalBoss]] in the first two games...
** DemotedToExtra: ...Only to get just one "canon" appearance in ''Unlimited'' in the BigBoosHaunt level. And it's in a starite shard mission, too, and not one for a full starite. Un-demoted in Scribblenauts Unmasked, where he's TheHeavy.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim
* EvilTwin
* FinalBoss: Of ''Super Scribblenauts''.
* HappilyAdopted: It is revealed in the ''Unmasked'' spin off comic he was [[spoiler: adopted by Maxwell's parents and even gets his own name: Alexander, after UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat.]]
* TheHeavy: In ''Scribblenauts Unmasked''.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Scribblenauts Unmasked'']].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Super Scribblenauts''. Maxwell can't even use potions to bring him back. He's summonable in ''Unlimited'', however. In addition, he returns as an antagonist in ''Unmasked''. This potentially indicates that ''Super Scribblenauts'' takes place after ''Unmasked'', granted that Doppelganger's HeelFaceTurn didn't stick]].
* PaletteSwap: Of Maxwell.
* SdrawkcabName: Averted. Of all the possible synonyms for summoning him, typing this in just spawns a cartridge.
* SlasherSmile
* WeakButSkilled: In Scribblenauts Unmasked, he said that his powers are relatively limited, his notebook being only limited to the single page that Maxwell created him from. He still poses quite a legitimate threat though.


Maxwell's twin sister who appears in ''Scribblenauts Unlimited''.
* AesopCollateralDamage: Gets turned to stone as a punishment for Maxwell giving the old man a rotten apple.
* DistaffCounterpart: Of Maxwell
* {{Fangirl}}: Appears to be one for Batman, as she's asking for his autograph in ''Scribblenauts Unmasked''.
* {{Narrator}}: In ''Scribblenauts Unlimited'', she is explaining the story of Maxwell.
* TakenForGranite: She gets turned to stone in ''Scribblenauts Unlimited'', so Maxwell needs to use the starites to heal her.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Out of the 42 children Edgar and Julie had, she's the only girl.
