''Arfenhouse'' was a series of [=RPGs=] made by a group called AKWare (later known as Disaster Labs) using [[GameMaker OHRRPGCE]]. The games were [[StylisticSuck intentionally made to look awful]], which was reflected in the Flash series in all the character designs.
* Housemaster is the guardian of Arfenhouse. He has a piece of bread for a face, and is clearly a HeroicComedicSociopath of some kind.
* Piakchu is Housemaster's pet, an obvious pixelated styling of the mascot Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, who he feeds jelly beans like the blob from ''VideoGame/ABoyAndHisBlob''.
* Dog is one of the other characters to join Housemaster's party. He's an icon made from a photograph of a dog's face, and happily joins in any insanity that Housemaster starts.
* Evil Kitty/Good Kitty is one of the early villains who [[HeelFaceTurn plays turncoat]] and joins Housemaster. Like Dog, she's an icon from a photo of a cat's face.
* Joseph is one of the only fully-drawn characters, a humanoid character from another RPG who [[FishOutOfWater got warped into Arfenhouse]]. He tries to play the StraightMan role, but nobody listens to him.
* Woogy is one of many round, two-colored ball guys who frequently trade non-sequiturs with each other and the other characters.
* Billy is the main villain of the series, an 8-year old brat represented by a yellow ball with a face, who tries to make popular Flash movies using stolen content (i.e. copyrighted video game characters), among other methods of gaining notoriety.
