!!Stanley Ipkiss / The Mask (Creator/JimCarrey / Creator/RobPaulsen)
* ActingUnnatural: Once he gets ahold of the Mask, it happens a lot.
* AdaptationalHeroism: The original comic-book version of Ipkiss is a flat-out villain who uses the Mask to finally vent his pent-up rage, quickly getting DrunkOnTheDarkSide and becoming a murderous sociopath. Neither the movie, nor the animated series is anywhere remotely this bad:
** In the movie, Ipkiss is a genuinely nice guy; he does rob a bank at one point and messes around with the police, but he doesn't actually want to hurt anybody, and ultimately stops the real BigBad.
** In the animated series, Ipkiss has graduated to a full-on hero; he is still not above trolling authority and people as a whole, especially when they're jerks, but Stanley otherwise tries to use the Mask's power as a force of good, and does so with relative success.
* AdaptationDistillation: Though much of Ipkiss' personality is the same in the beginning of both the comics and the movie. In the comics Stanley becomes more psychotic and abusive whenever he doesn't have the mask on.
* {{Adorkable}}: In the movie and the animated series? Yes. The comics? Not so much.
* AscendedExtra: Dies a madman in issue 00 of the comics, he's TheHero of the movie and series.
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: In the movies, The Mask has a Nordic/Viking origin. In the comics, it's African.
* BaldOfAwesome: As The Mask he's completely bald and he's an unstoppable cartoonish superheero.
* BadLiar: Somebody stole his pajamas!
* BecomingTheMask: literally. In the comic, the confidence he feels after getting away with vengeance through his powers as "Big Head" causes him to more openly express his true feelings... which are those of a bitter and maladjusted psychopath. In the animated series, it's explicit that the Mask is fueled by tapping into Ipkiss' repressed feelings; when he tries acting like that idealized self, he drains power from the Mask until eventually it won't ''work'' for him.
* BeneathTheMask: In the comics, it's quickly made clear that the seemingly nice, wimpy guy we're introduced to in the opening is actually a bubbling cauldron of spite and fury, held back only by his feelings of inferiority and weakness. Once he has the power to lash out at people, he quickly goes screaming off the deep end. He gets so bad that his girlfriend, Kathy, ultimately ''shoots him to death'' because she sees it as the only way to stop him from killing more people.
* BerserkButton:
** In the animated series, The Mask has three big ones: do NOT mess with [[NotInTheFace his face]], [[MyFavoriteShirt his clothes]], or [[CoolestClubEver the Coco Bongo]]. Because if you do, he will then indulge in his (second) favorite pastime: '''''REVENGE!'''''
** And there's also one that both Stanley and The Mask share: '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis DO]]''' '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis NOT.]]''''' '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis HURT. MILO!]]''' When it comes to that dog, he can be a bit of a PapaWolf. Pretorius found this out the hard way.
* ButtMonkey: whether it's the comic, the movie or the animated series, Stanley tends to get treated like crap by almost everyone other than his closest friends, though he learns to stand up for himself as the film goes on. In the comic, that serves as his motive for revenge.
** And in the animated series, it's practically to the point that he reaches {{Woobie}} status.
* CatchPhrase: "Sssssssmokin'!" and "Somebody stop me!" On a lesser note, "But first..."
* ChekhovsGag:
** Stanley's favorite cartoons become the traits of the Mask (for starters, he spins like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Taz]]).
** His head even morphs into the Tex Avery wolf from ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood''.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: The Mask personality.
* ComicallyInvincibleHero: Again, with the powers of the Mask.
* CursedWithAwesome: A few times throughout the animated series, this is how Stanley feels about having the mask.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Stanley has brown hair and eyes.
* DeadpanSnarker: Both Stanley and The Mask have their moments.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: In the comics, the Mask serves as a way for Ipkiss to finally vent all of his pent-up rage and hatred for being pushed around in all of his life due to his unimposing physique and milquetoast nature. As he kills more and more people, he grows more openly psychotic and smug, even when not wearing the Mask. He's quite unique in this, as neither Kellaway nor Kathy shows similar corruption despite their wearing the Mask on multiple occasions as well.
* ExtremeDoormat: Before he TookALevelInBadass in the film.
** An episode of the animated series called "Double Reverse" explored this and the claim that the mask unleashes Stanley's repressed wild side. When he starts acting more like the Mask as Stanley, he impresses his clients, gets a promotion and a hot girlfriend. Buuuut....since he's acting like the Mask when he's ''not'' the Mask, he can't ''change into the Mask'' anymore, which is bad news when a supervillain inevitably shows up.
* FusionDance: Kinda. There is no dance involved, but in the animated episode "Split Personality", the Mask is split in two. In an attempt to see if it works, Stanley puts the half on. It works to say the least, resulting in a literal fusion of the two. One half Stanley, one half the Mask.
-->'''Stanley Half''': So this is what I do as you...
-->'''The Mask Half''': It's the voodoo I do!
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Except in the comics, where he's a VillainProtagonist.
* HeroicHost: In one episode of the cartoon, Skillit, a [[TheFairFolk fairy]] who used to hang out with the Mask implies that it's wearers used to be much more violent and murderous, like in the comics, but Stanley turned the Mask into a much more heroic, though no less deranged, force. Though this may have to do with just who those previous hosts were: Atilla, Blackbeard and Genghis Khan are three that Skillet names.
* IHaveThisFriend: Stanley claims to be old college buddies with "The Mask".
* LargeHam: both as the Stanley and the Mask in the movie. In the animated series, Stanley is portrayed as a bit less hammy and more shy, but the Mask is still incredibly hammy.
* NiceGuy: In the movie and animated series, very much so due to the massive AdaptationalHeroism. Lampshaded by both Tina and Peggy in the movie.
* OnlySaneMan: Stanley whenever he's NOT wearing the mask, ''especially'' in the animated series.
* SexierAlterEgo: Note that he's not more physically attractive (unless you're into that sort of thing), but more confident and impulsive (and gets RealityWarper powers), and that's why he gets the LoveInterest in the end.
* SlasherSmile: Just look at the image in our page for the comic! Although in the movie and cartoon, it just becomes part of his DreamworksFace.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Died in The Mask issue 00, but is alive in the movie and animated series.
* SubmissiveBadass: Well, Stanley is submissive, but with the mask overcomes it and becomes badass.
* {{Troll}}: As the Mask, especially in the Animated Series.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Common cold in the Animated Series. Although it's because Stanley himself is sick, leading the Mask to be vulnerable.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Whenever Stanley puts on the mask.

* ActionPet : Despite just being a small jack russel terrier dog, Milo gets his share of the action, especially when he gets to wear the Mask.
* CanineCompanion: He is Stanley's dog.
* EvilDetectingDog: While not evil (at least in the right hands) Milo could tell from the start that there was something strange about the Mask.
* NearlyNormalAnimal: In the film, he knew that Stanley was in trouble at the Coco Bongo, overruled Stanley's early order to remain in the car, and successfully unlocked the door to go look for him.
* NonHumanSidekick: The closest thing Stanley has to a sidekick.
* TeamPet: To an extent.
* UncattyResemblance: While wearing the mask, Milo's alter-ego is as mischievous and cartoonish as Stanley.
* UrineTrouble: In the movie, he urinates on one of Dorian Tyrell's henchmen while wearing the mask. The animated series also features some occasional jokes where he urinates on stuff, like piddling on a campaign poster for Mayor Tilton in "Mayor Mask".

!!Ray Tuttle
* BullyHunter: Taken to the extreme.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Much more of a hero than the [[VillainProtagonist Villain Protagonists]] of previous arcs, at least.
* JustLikeRobinHood: He attempts this. However, his actions do more harm than good and in the end he realizes he's become no better than the man who ruined his life in the first place.
* TheLostLenore: His wife's death before the comic drive him to raid a casino and kill the CorruptCorporateExecutive responsible.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he discovers that one of his victims died from a heart attack.
* PapaWolf: Uses the Mask to wreak violent retribution on his daughter's bullies.
* ThouShaltNotKill: He's willing to maim and cause millions in property damage, but murder is a step too far for him, and he suffers a breakdown when one of his victims dies.
* TheWoobie: Leads a pretty miserable life. He attempts to use the mask to remedy this, but only ends up ruining hundreds of other lives and getting his house destroyed. On the bright side, his daughter's post-traumatic mutism is cured by the end of the story.
* WouldHurtAChild: Has little patience for kids bullying his daughter.
* WouldHitAGirl
--> "I know you're never supposed to hit a lady, but then again, you're no lady - [[ThoseWackyNazis you're a lousy Nazi!"]]

!!Tina Carlyle (Creator/CameronDiaz)
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: When the movie was adapted into a Saturday morning cartoon, Tina was never seen and her existence was not acknowledged.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Not cold, just a little aloof at first, and long before she learns for a certainty that he's the Mask, she's actually quite friendly with Stanley.
* DistressedDamsel: During the final showdown in the Coco Bongo, being tied next to a bomb.
* {{Expy}}: Of Kathy, Stanley's girlfriend, from the comics.
* FemmeFatale: She uses her allure on Stanley, who's completely DistractedByTheSexy
* MsFanservice: Cameron Diaz as a sexy club singer? Yep
* ReformedCriminal: She starts the movie as Dorian's girlfriend and accomplice in casing the bank but abandons crime the first chance she gets.
* SilkHidingSteel: Tied up and with a bomb counting down at her feet, her quick thinking enables her to get the mask off Dorian.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: When Stanley asks her whether she's sure about throwing the mask away because all that'd be left is him, she [[Heartwarming/TheMask responds by throwing it into the bay herself and kissing him]].

!!Charlie Schumaker (Richard Jeni / Mark L. Taylor)
* BadBoss: Tends to abuse Stanley in almost every way in the animated series, while still acting like a nice guy.
* IAlwaysWantedToSayThat: See below.
* JerkassFacade: Comes across as ''really'' selfish at first, but he helps Stanley when he really needs him.
* TheLancer: In the movie only, he rarely appears with Stanley outside the office in the series.
* OnlyFriend: Charlie does appear to be Stanley's only friend.
* TookALevelInBadass: "Officers, arrest those men! ...[[IAlwaysWantedToSayThat I've always wanted to say that]]."
* TookALevelInJerkass: His redeeming qualities disappear in the animated series.
* WhoNeedsEnemies: He'll drop a conversation with Stanley to talk to a pretty girl.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: He's not always good at being there for Stanley, see above.

!!Lieutenant Kellaway (Peter Riegert / Neil Ross)
* ButtMonkey: ''Especially'' in the Animated Series.
* TheComicallySerious: His refusal to even be remotely amused by the Mask's antics only add to the hilarity.
* HeroAntagonist: In the movie and the series. He's technically completely right that the Mask is a criminal, since he was never punished for robbing the bank in the movie, but in the series, this has blossomed into an outright hatred of the Mask.
* InspectorJavert: In the cartoon, he's got a grudge. In the comics though, it's justified.
* NoSenseOfHumor: See below.
** Moreso in the comics, where he's trying to hunt down and stop an artifact that turns anyone who wears it into an unstoppable, psychotic mass-murderer.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In the comics.
* ShoutOut: In the cartoon, he wears a brown raincoat, much like [[Series/{{Columbo}} another TV police lieutenant with no first name given]].
* StraightMan: With almost no sense of humor.
* TookALevelInJerkass: His dislike of the Mask is completely justified in the comic, and while he is a misguided HeroAntagonist in the movie, he overall does nothing the could be considered unreasonable. In the Animated Series, on the other hand, he keeps treating the Mask like a criminal and chasing him, no matter how many times he saw him save the day or arrest actually dangerous criminals.
* TookALevelInKindness: He however develops some respect for the Mask in following episodes of the animated series. He thanked the Mask for saving him from Putty Thing and accepted his proof that Stanley didn't counterfeit money in one episode.

!!Detective Doyle (Jim Doughan / Creator/JimCummings)
%%* ButtMonkey
* CaptainObvious: In the cartoon, he has a tendency to comment on blatantly obvious things that are happening around him.
* CluelessDetective: Don't bother trying to give him a hint in Pig Latin.
** He's even more clueless in the cartoon, making one wonder how the hell could he have passed the police academy exams.
* FriendlyEnemy: Tried to shake Stanley's hand after he saved the day.
* PluckyComicRelief: He's so dumb it's clearly PlayedForLaughs.
* TookALevelInDumbass: Both a film-wise and adaptation wise. In his initial scene at the bank, he seems to be quite intelligent and competent. By the time we see him at the park, he's suddenly a ditz and by the film's end he's a certified idiot (though some of that may have been him being influenced by the Mask's power). The cartoon made him even dumber.

!!Detective Lionel
* AdaptedOut: He is omitted in the film and the animated series.
* AngryBlackMan: Lionel turned into one when Kellaway/Big Head started fighting the police, and challenged Big Head to a fist fight. [[spoiler: Big Head almost killed him, and would have if Kellaway hadn't regained control of himself.]]
* BlackBestFriend: Oh hell, Lionel is Kellaway's [[OnlyFriend ONLY friend]]!
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Subverted, as Lionel is one of the few people Big Head doesn't end up killing.
* IdiotBall: Lionel challenged Big Head to a fist fight. This went as well as one would expect...
* TokenMinority: Lionel is the only member of the named main cast who's black.
* TheWatson: He's not only Kellaway's partner, but one of the few people in the police force that Kellaway even trusts.
* WhiteDudeBlackDude: Subverted. With Kellaway and Lionel it's more "angry dude, calm dude", respectively.

!!Mrs. Peenman (Nancy Fish / Creator/TressMacNeille)
* ButtMonkey: And how! Especially in the animated series (though, given how much of a mean old lady she is, Peenman is more of an AssholeVictim).
* [[GrumpyOldMan Grumpy Old Woman]]: Always yelling and complaining, mostly about Stanley.
* HairTriggerTemper: Stuff like treading on new carpets makes her angry.
* {{Jerkass}}: Bangs on walls and screams at people, demands money to be delivered on time and generally is merciless.

!!Peggy Brandt (Amy Yasbeck / Heidi Shannon)
* DistressBall: In the cartoon.
* EasilyForgiven: In the cartoon Stanley doesn't seem too mad about her selling him out in the movie.
* FaceHeelTurn: In the movie, she turns Stanley over to Tyrell for money.
* GoingForTheBigScoop: In the cartoon.
* IntrepidReporter: In the cartoon.
* ItsAllAboutMe: When [[spoiler:she puts on the mask]] in the animated series episode "Counterfeit Mask".
-->'''Stanley:''' I thought you wanted to help me so you could report a great story!
-->'''[[spoiler:Mask!]]Peggy:''' I don't need to report the story, darling... I ''AM'' the story!
* KarmaHoudini: In the movie, since [[spoiler:the scene of Peggy getting shoved in the printing press by Dorian and coming out as a bloodied newspaper that has her death on the front page]] was cut. She and Stanley became friends in the cartoon, on the other hand. But he never got over her selling him out.
* MsFanservice: In the cartoon.
* SecretKeeper: In the animated series. Out of Stanley's small circle of friends, she's the only one that knows he and The Mask are one and the same. (Well, other than Milo, anyway.)
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Since [[spoiler:her death was removed from the theatrical cut of the movie]], she is featured as still alive in the animated series.
* TookALevelInKindness: In the cartoon; she is still constantly trying to exploit the Mask to get a scoop, but she at least no longer acts antagonistic toward Stanley.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She disappears after Dorian puts on the mask and was presumably allowed by Tyrell and his men to walk away unharmed. Originally, [[spoiler:he would follow up by tossing her [[CruelAndUnusualDeath into a newspaper printing press.]]]]

!!Dorian Tyrell (Peter Greene)
* BerserkButton: '''''DON'T COME ANYWHERE NEAR HIS GIRL!'''''
** And if you're the girl in question, do NOT try to walk out on him if you ''value your life''. In [[https://sfy.ru/?script=mask an earlier draft of the script]] and the extended workprint version of the film, he all but outright states that [[spoiler:he ''killed'' one of his previous girlfriends when she tried to leave him]].
-->'''Dorian:''' You know what happened to [[spoiler:the last bitch that ran out on me?]] ''Do you?!''\\
'''Tina:''' No...\\
'''Dorian:''' Nobody else does, either. And ''nobody ever will''.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the film.
* CharacterDeath: He doesn't come back in the cartoon or the sequel
* DomesticAbuser: Don't see too much in the movie, but it seems pretty obvious anyway.
* EvilMakesYouUgly: [[spoiler:While the Mask makes Stanley bald and cartoonish, Dorian instead gets a demonic GameFace that even retains the hair.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: [[spoiler:When he wears the Mask, it makes his voice significantly deeper]]. See below.
%%* HairTriggerTemper
* IfICantHaveYou: He never outright says it, but itís heavily implied that this is his reasoning for [[spoiler: tying Tina to the bomb that he planned to blow up the Coco Bongo with]].
* LawOfDisproportionateResponse: Get pushed around by the "Big Boss"... Blow up his Casino and everyone in it.
* PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep: [[spoiler:When he wears the Mask]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:When he's wearing the Mask]].
* TheStarscream: To Niko.
* UnstoppableRage: When [[spoiler:he wears the Mask]].

!!Niko (Orestes Matacena)
* AssholeVictim: He is killed by Dorian once he gets the mask
* BadBoss: Uses Dorian's mouth for a golf tee in once scene
* GreaterScopeVillain: Is the boss of Dorian

!!Mayor Tilton
* KavorkaMan: In the series most infamous episode, "Birds Of A Feather", Tilton has to deal with a crazed ex-lover, an incredibly sexy "exotic dancer" who threatens to blow herself up along with him, because if she cant have him, no one can. This despite Tilton being bald, fat and having a rather wimpy personality.
* MayorPain: While he isnt ''evil'' by any stretch, he isnt exactly the most honest politician around. He spends city fund money on statues of himself, dates "exotic dancers", and is the spitting image of the two-faced, suck-up type politician.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Not enough for villain status, but the Tilton who appeared in the movie was much more pleasant than the cartoon version, who is smarmy and self-absorbed.

!!Dr. Pretorius (Creator/TimCurry)

* BigBad: The main antagonist of the animated series.
* {{Cyborg}}: He cybernetically reconstructed his upper torso so he could detach his head on a set of spider-legs, allowing head and body to operate independently of each other. He explains in his introductory episode that he did it as a way to lighten his workload, so he could divide it between head and body projects.
* {{Expy}}: He looks a lot like Eugene Rapaz, a drug dealer from the comics. Tone down the mohawk and replace the eye lenses with glasses...
* HammerSpace: The tiny circular base of his head has the mechanisms to drive six small legs, a computer interface jack, various tools, a neural interface and circuitry, and one would assume a complex life support system to keep him alive without a body (albeit such a system may be meant for short term use as he's almost always attached to his robotic body).
* HeelRealization: Averted. He rejects the accusation that he is evil and explains that he is first and foremost a man of science. When he [[spoiler:wears the mask and]] finally sees his [[spoiler: monstrous]] inner self, he non-chalantly notes that he may be evil after all.
* KnightOfCerebus: In his first episode, until VillainDecay kicked in.
* LosingYourHead: When it happens, it grows spider legs!
* MadScientist: Sometimes planning the weirdest things possible ForScience. For instance, taking pictures of aquatic sea life living on the moons of Neptune... by destroying Edge City with a nuclear bomb, as the blast would provide a super-powerful flash so his camera could reach that far. Or trying to get a fake Mayor Tilton elected so he could turn Edge City into a toxic waste dump and experiment with those chemicals as a supply of mutagenic agents.
* PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep: During the one time that he [[spoiler:wears the mask]].
* ShoutOut: He shares his name with the mad scientist from ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein''.
* VillainDecay: In his first appearance, he was a [[KnightOfCerebus serious and dangerous antagonist]] who came up with a relatively credible plan (by cartoon standards, that is) and almost killed Stanley at least twice. In later episodes, while he would still turn out to be a threat occasionally, his plans became much goofier, and he started becoming more of a ButtMonkey like other villains. Granted, with an opponent like [[ComicallyInvincibleHero the Mask]], it was probably inevitable.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the comic, he was incredibly strong and durable, but could eventually be taken down with enough beating. In the animated series, he is flat-out NighInvulnerable even to the Mask's supernatural powers, and can only be defeated by being sent away or trapped somewhere.
* ArchEnemy: In the comics. He takes a backseat to Dr Pretorius in the cartoon, though he is still a fairly persistant and important villain of his own.
* BaldOfEvil: In the comic.
* TheBrute: More so in the comics than the cartoon, where he was a mob hitman and enforcer.
* TheComicallySerious: In the cartoon. No matter all the absurd hijinks the Mask throws at him, he still keeps a serious, stoic face.
* TheDragon: To Dr. Pretorius in the cartoon, to the mob in the comics.
* EvilRedhead: In the cartoon.
* KnightOfCerebus: Even in the cartoon, the only humor we get from him is about [[ImplacableMan how ridiculously invulnerable he is]] and [[TheComicallySerious how he won't show any emotion even in the most absurd situations]]. Aside from that, he is usually is played as a real threat.
* ImplacableMan: This is played as much for comedy as it is for horror on the animated show.
* NighInvulnerable: In the cartoon. In the comics he could be taken down with enough of a beating.
* PresidentEvil: A comic (likely based on the cartoon) had him running for Mayor of Edge City.
* SelfMutilationDemonstration: Just to be clear here- comic Walter can bleed, though it doesn't seem to really hurt him. Cartoon Walter is impervious to wounds. That said... in the comics he had a disgusting habit of cutting himself just to mess with people's heads.
* SuperStrength: Especially in the cartoon; in "Split Personality," he's shown to be able to actually break the Mask itself in half, a feat made all the more impressive by the fact that before he did so, the Mask had been hit by a car and run over by a steamroller without a scratch.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: On one occasion he got his hands on the mask. When he tried to put it on, however, it just fell off--either his head was too big for it to fit or the mask simply cannot work with whatever he has going on his in head.
* TheVoiceless: He has no dialogue.

!!Dr. Arthur Neuman (Ben Stein)
* AllTherapistsAreMuggles: [[spoiler:Not even him wearing the mask (and thus transformed, with multiple witnesses that can say that he was ''seriously'' NotHimself) in the animated series]] and two entirely different men having clearly experienced ''something'' after getting possession of the mask on the films makes him stop thinking it's clearly the product of hysteria and derangement, and does nothing to help them.
** [[spoiler:In the animated series, whilst wearing the Mask himself, he becomes convinced that people describing the existence of the Mask-as-individual are suffering from a disorder he calls Ipkissia Maskosis.]]
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:When he wears the mask in the animated series]]. It is ''[[NightmareFuel frightening]]''.
* TheCameo: The ''only'' character from the first movie to appear in [[Film/SonOfTheMask the sequel]], which was probably for the best...
* DeadpanSnarker: Emphasis on the "Deadpan". He's played by Ben Stein, what did you expect?
* PsychoPsychologist: Again, [[spoiler:when he wears the mask. He attacks random people to put them in wedgie straitjackets, nearly lobotomizes Charlie Schumaker, and tries to help Dr. Pretorius nuke Edge City because he decided that killing the population would end the "scourge" of Ipkissia Maskosis]].
-->'''Stanley:''' I take ''advice'' from that guy?! He's ''mad!''
* ReversePsychology: In the animated series episode "Double Reverse", he suggests that Stanley use this as a way to make Stanley's life better. This advice winds up [[GoneHorriblyRight working a little]] ''[[GoneHorriblyRight too well]]'', because since Stanley's acting like the Mask when he's ''not'' the Mask, he can't ''change into the Mask'' anymore.
* TheShrink: A certified psychiatrist. Stanley goes after him for advice in the movie, and follows suit in the cartoon.

!!Mask Hunters
A group of crypto-Nazis hunting the mask for their own sinister ends. They're the main antagonists of ''The Hunt For Green October''.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: A villainous example.
* BadassCrew: A group of killers who travel the world fighting government agents and ninjas. it's only through pure luck that they don't get The Mask.
* DarkActionGirl: One of them. Interestingly, she's also the only one of the team that isn't blonde, instead being an EvilRedhead.
* GratuitousGerman: Their leader tends to break out in German at random times, just so you [[ThoseWackyNazis remember who they are]].
* PlotIrrelevantVillain: Their only real purpose in the plot is to show up at the end for the climactic fight scene. Everything before that is just them showing how evil they are so we know it's okay to kill them.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Just in case you weren't sure they were evil.
* TooDumbToLive: At least some of them are alive (albeit heavily wounded) when the fighting stops - until one of them attempts a TakingYouWithMe using some explosive barrels on an immortal monster who's demonstrated an ability to survive pretty much anything and incinerates all the survivors.
* WouldHarmAChild: Threaten to murder Tuttle's daughter if he doesn't tell them where the mask is. Turns out she's not as defenseless as they expected.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: They murder their weapons dealer after getting their guns, reasoning that they won't have to worry about buying guns after they get The Mask.
