!Film/ShaunOfTheDead

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Shaun]]
!!Shaun
->'''Played by''': Creator/SimonPegg

->''"How's ''that'' for a slice of fried gold?"''

* ActionSurvivor: Despite being a typical, unhealthy layabout, he still manages to [[spoiler:survive the entire film.]]
* ApologeticAttacker: When he's [[spoiler:forced to shoot Barbara.]]
%%* ButtMonkey
* CombatPragmatist: He uses whatever is available, be it a cricket bat, pool cue, or jukebox.
* DeadpanSnarker: Usually when confronted by Ed's stupidity or David's abrasiveness.
%%* TheEveryman
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Ed.
-->'''David''': ''"Well, I wasn't the one who was blowing our cover by having a tiff with my boyfriend."''
-->'''Shaun''': ''"He's not my boyfriend!"''
-->'''Ed''': (handing him a beer) ''"It might be a bit warm, the cooler's off."''
-->'''Shaun''': ''"Thanks, babe."''
* TheHero: Notably, every scene in the entire film (with just one exception) is centered around him.
* LoserProtagonist: He's a bit of a slacker, is in a rocky relationship with his current girlfriend, and is stuck in a dead-end job where none of the younger employees have any respect for him. To his credit, he isn't as much of a loser as Ed, whose only source of income is occasionally selling weed.
* NiceGuy: He's a bit lazy and irresponsible at the start of the film, but otherwise a decent guy.
* OnlySaneMan: Shares this role in the group with Liz.
* TooDumbToLive: What exactly made the Winchester any safer than Liz's apartment? While it's got big heavy doors and a rifle on the wall and Ed knows where all the exits are (and he can smoke), they actually probably ''would'' have been safer in the apartment, because the window was above ground level (Shaun himself could climb up to it, but he wasn't a zombie) and you couldn't even get into the building without being buzzed in. Even if the zombies somehow got in through that door, they could have barricaded the apartment door fairly easily. But they also wouldn't have had half so much booze.
* TookALevelInBadass: Starts off as a bumbling slacker. Becomes a zombie slaying badass.
* WeaponOfChoice: A cricket bat.

[[folder:Ed]]
!!Ed
->'''Played by''': Nick Frost

->''"Who died and made you fucking king of the zombies?"''

* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: [[spoiler:He's still Shaun's best mate, though.]]
* ActionSurvivor: [[spoiler:Until he gets bitten in the Winchester.]]
* BigFun: Quite chubby. Also very funny.
* BloodKnight: After everything goes to pot, he starts having fun in a world without rules.
* CombatPragmatist: Not exactly a rule-abiding kind of guy.
* {{Gasshole}}: "I'm sorry, man."
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:To allow Liz and Shaun to escape the Winchester's cellar.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Shaun.
%%* ImprobableWeaponUser
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Lazy, annoying and vulgar, but he genuinely cares about Shaun. He's just bad at showing it.
* TheLancer: Shaun's best friend and his partner during the {{Zombie Apocalypse}}.
* TheMillstone: Outright causes a lot of the group's problems. Deliberately crashes Pete's car so he could drive Phillip's Jag, [[TooDumbToLive answering his phone whilst surrounded by zombies.....]]
* TooDumbToLive: He takes this to new levels and plays it for laughs. The characters need to get past a horde of zombies, and do so by acting like zombies to avoid drawing attention. When they are nearly to apparent safety, his phone goes off... ''and he answers it and starts cheerfully talking on the phone, less than ten feet from dozens of zombies.'' Previously, he had "accidentally" crashed their first car, giving him an excuse to drive a Jaguar instead. Following after the cellphone incident, the electricity comes back on and he starts playing a pub fruit machine, which draw the attention of a zombie in the same building as them.
* TookALevelInBadass: Not to the extent of Shaun, but Ed becomes surprisingly resourceful by the end.
* ToxicFriendInfluence: Played with. Ed holds Shaun back, but itís far from intentional and he does love Shaun.
* WeaponOfChoice: A shovel, which he uses to bash the zo-those ''things''' heads in.

[[folder:Liz]]
!!Liz
->'''Played by''': Kate Ashfield

->''"Can we just CALM THE [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK]] DOWN?"''

* ActionGirl: Almost wields a chain against the zombies at the very end of the film.
* ActionSurvivor: [[spoiler:Survives the events of the film, along with Shaun.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Probably the biggest snarker in the film.
* OnlySaneMan: Shares this role in the group with Shaun.
* PrecisionFStrike: Just look at that quote. She actually manages to defuse the situation, somewhat.

[[folder:Diane]]
!!Dianne
->'''Played by''': Lucy Davis

->''"Just look at the face: it's vacant, with a hint of sadness. Like a drunk who's lost a bet."''

* ActionSurvivor: [[spoiler:She survives the events of the film (see below.)]]
* ActionGirl: [[spoiler:She charges into a horde of zombies armed only with David's severed leg. [[AllThereInTheManual According to an extra on the DVD,]] she survived!]]
* BetaCouple: With David.
* ChekhovsSkill: She's a "failed actress." Her acting skills come in handy when the group has to pretend to be zombies to get to the Winchester.
%%* GranolaGirl
* GrievousHarmWithABody: She attacks zombies using [[spoiler:one of Davidís torn off legs.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:David]]
!!David
->'''Played by''': Dylan Moran

->''"Basically, I'd say your nine lives are up, Shaun."''

* BetaCouple: With Dianne.
%%* ButtMonkey
* DeadpanSnarker: Whenever he's putting Shaun down. Which is often.
%%* DirtyCoward
%%* FourEyesZeroSoul
* GreenEyedMonster: Towards Shaun, due to David's secret love for Liz
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:He almost redeems himself. But then he gets ripped apart by hungry zombies. In a deleted scene, he actually managed to apologize before being killed.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: However, unlike Ed, he isn't at all likeable.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Seemingly invoked deliberately. It's clear that he's correct in that Shaun's plan isn't very well thought-out, and his ultimate goal amounts to little more to sitting around and waiting for rescue. However, considering that he himself rarely has anything to offer but unhelpful snark, and that he just makes things worse on the rare occasions when he actually tries to do something, it's clear that he's RightForTheWrongReasons, his criticisms of Shaun's plans being more out of personal dislike for Shaun than him actually having any idea of what to do, keeping him from being remotely sympathetic. Even when he's right and is actually ready to do something about it (when he was ready to shoot the now-dead Barbara before she could revive as a zombie), he can't do it without being a complete twat about it, and he ultimately wimps out and makes Shaun do it.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Dies very shortly after his most heinous act.]]
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:During an attempted apology, even.]]
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: As Diane points out, if he really was as capable as he was trying to act whenever he was putting Shaun down, he would have taken charge of the group himself, rather than following along with whatever Shaun was doing.
%%* TheLoad
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Everything he does is motivated in some way by his not-so-secret love for Liz.
* NonActionGuy: The most he does is empty a bin and throw it through a window.
* OnlySaneMan: ''Thinks'' he's this, although really he's just TheLoad.
* SmugSnake: Very smug about his supposed superiority to Shaun.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Standing ''right in front of the pub window'', seconds before he gets eaten]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Barbara]]
!!Barbara
->'''Played by''': Penelope Wilton

->''"Itís been a funny sort of day, hasnít it?"''

* CloudCuckooLander: Cheerfully oblivious to the {{Zombie Apocalypse}} going on around her. [[spoiler:At least at first; after she's bitten, she seems more distracted by hiding her bite than actually being oblivious to everything.]]
* MortalWoundReveal: [[spoiler:She reveals the zombie bite on her wrist when the group gets to the Winchester.]]
* TheLoad: She's not very useful, but she's not actively detrimental like Ed.
* TooDumbToLive: What did she ''think'' would happen [[spoiler: opening the door to a zombie?]]
* ZombieInfectee: [[spoiler:Every zombie movie needs one.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Philip]]
!!Phillip
->'''Played by''': Creator/BillNighy

->''"It's a lot of overblown nonsense, a lot of drug nuts running wild."''

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shaun hates him and he acts pretty coldly towards his stepson at first, but it's later revealed that he genuinely cared for Shaun even after everything they did and said to each other.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: "I'm perfectly alright, Barbara; I ran it under a cold tap."
* PerpetualFrowner: Never smiles. Ever.
* WickedStepmother: Stepfather, but still fits. Shaun considers him this at first, but really heís just a rather abrasive but ultimately good-hearted fellow.
* ZombieInfectee: [[spoiler:Notably, he gets bitten ''twice'', presumably speeding up the process.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Yvonne]]
!!Yvonne
->'''Played by''': Jessica Stevenson

->''"Glad to see somebody made it!"''

* ActionSurvivor: Survives the events of the film.
* TheCameo: Jessica Stevenson previously worked with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on {{Spaced}}.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Has a group of survivors just like Shaun (with a counterpart for ''every single character'' in Shaun's group), but she seems to be the only one who got out alive. Presumably kicked a lot of zombie ass off-screen.
* ThePollyanna: She's almost constantly smiling and cheerful, even in the midst of a ZombieApocalypse. Her upbeat personality doesn't prevent her from surviving the events of the film, either.
%%* TomboyishPonytail
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pete]]
!!Pete
->'''Played by''': Peter Serafinowicz

->''"Sort your fucking life out, mate!"''

%%* ButtMonkey
* ClusterFBomb: Has a rather epic one.
-->''"No, it's not. It's fucking Sunday. And I've got to go to fucking work in four fucking hours 'cos every other fucker in my fucking department is fucking ill! Now can you see why I'm SO FUCKING ANGRY? "''
* DeadpanSnarker: Whenever he has to put up with Ed's stupidity. Which seems to be often.
* FullFrontalAssault: [[spoiler:He seemingly turned into a zombie during a shower, causing dead Pete to stumble around butt nude.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He's extremely mean towards Ed.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Ed doesn't pay his rent, makes a mess, plays loud music at night and isn't even attempting to get a job. It's hard to dispute his assessment for why Shaun keeps Ed around, even if the two are best friends. More infamously, he's the one who tells Shaun to sort his life out, which he spends the rest of the film trying to do.
