This is a list of characters and related tropes in the influential webcomic, ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''. Unmarked spoilers ahead.


!! Main characters

[[folder:Mega Man]]

The main character before the introduction of Bob and George. A robot created by Dr. Light to be his lab assistant. While not fighting Robot Masters, he is an idiot, as per his secondary function. When carrying out his primary function to fight Robot Masters, he is cunning and intelligent.

* AchievementsInIgnorance
* ArmCannon
* ContractualImmortality: Before the introduction of Bob and George.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's deadly when fighting Robot Masters. When he's not, he's an idiot. He's programmed that way.
* DeadpanSnarker: Only in the video game adaptions though due to his primary programming.
* IndyPloy: Some of his weapons.
* PowerCopying: Obviously, given that he was the former {{Trope Namer|s}}. Though he uses it more creatively than in the games.
* TooDumbToLive: Played with. He actually seems to be ''too dumb to be killed''.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ice cream

[[folder:Proto Man]]
Mega Man's older brother and the prototype Robot Master. In contrast to Mega Man's stupidity, Proto Man is more or less this comic's version of Franchise/{{Batman}}.

* ArmCannon
* CoolShades
* CrazyPrepared: His contingency plans for the final battle up to least "Plan R".
* DeadpanSnarker: Usually towards Mega Man.
* GenreSavvy: He ''reads the comic'' so he knows what to do next.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: They provide enhanced vision. And they look cool.
* ICallItVera: Calls it his "baby".
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Uses his Proto Shield to deflect just about anything.

[[folder:The Author]]
The Author of the comic. An all-powerful being who directly interacts with the characters on many occasions.

* AuthorAvatar
* AuthorGuestSpot
* PaletteSwap: A purple, helmetless recolor of Mega Man. He thinks the helmet would make him look like a moron.
* RealityWarper
* WeirdnessMagnet: When he leaves, life returns to normal.
* PhysicalGod: He is the owner of the comic and later in the comic, Bob even refers to him as "the local god".
* RestartTheWorld: After his showdown with the Helmeted Author didn't go as planned. They decided on to just use their powers together in unison at each other which destroys the comic and sends George and Proto Man to Chick Bot and Rick O' Shay's comics.

A superhero from the hand-drawn comic world. He has Lightning powers and crippling self-esteem issues. Trapped in the Mega Man universe as part of a ploy to trap Bob there instead. Makes friends with the cast and lives at Dr Light's lab. The entire arc of the comic gives him CharacterDevelopment, in contrast to the [[StaticCharacter most other characters]].

* AscendedFanboy: Grew up playing the ''Mega Man'' games in his home dimension.
* BatmanGrabsAGun: It takes the whole comic, but George eventually realizes that shooting Bob with his until-then-unused ArmCannon is the only way left to stop him. The other reason being he [[TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket is the only person who can't figure out how to activate it]].
* BerserkButton: Others not liking ice cream.
* CainAndAbel: With Bob.
* CodeName: Blitz.
* DeadpanSnarker: He gets really good at this during the events of the comic.
* DistressedDude: Captured several times.
* ForgotICouldFly: Hangs from Dr Wily's ceiling for months because he forgot he could just use his powers to escape.
* HalfHumanHybrid: His mother is a succubus. ''Her'' father [[ is]] {{Satan}}.
** DivineParentage
* LightningCanDoAnything: He gets more and creative with his powers as time goes on, even managing to [[RideTheLightning teleport using them]] in a manner just as effective as Dr. Light's robots.
* ShockAndAwe: He also uses his powers to attack.
** ChainLightning: Used by the time of The Attack of Non-Alternate Mynd, he is able to destroy entire armies of mooks by himself.
* MundaneUtility: Implied given that the end of the comic has him become an electrical engineer (where he could utilize his manipulation or at least knowledge of electricity) [[spoiler: or he would've anyway had it not been for the twist.]]
* NiceGuy: Albeit a little dim sometimes and very snarky.
* OneManArmy: Is notable for being one of the only people who can reliably destroy [[ConservationOfNinjutsu entire armies of ninjas]] singlehandedly.
* PaletteSwap: A light-blue and gray recolor of The Author with blonde hair. Which itself is a recolor of Mega Man sans helmet.
* PlotArmor: [[InvokedTrope Invokes]] this on several occasion, sure a contrived PlotDevice will save him.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch
-->It's called the conservation of energy, bitch!
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:The reason why he and Bob became characters in the comic due to his mother's BatmanGambit. It works out magnificently.]]
** To clarify, when George first appeared in the comic, he wasn't very useful in combat since he couldn't use his suit's blaster. Then he revealed his lightning powers and gradually became one of the most powerful characters in the comic by taking down the Helmeted Author before he assumed his true form, took out N.A.Mynd by fusing with Chadling, stopped X's assimilating everyone and foiled Bob's plans to wipe out the entire comic's universe. This ended with George finally being able to use his blaster and almost used it to kill Bob to stop him for good as a last resort.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ice Cream.

George's younger brother. He was an aspiring supervillian in his home dimension. He initially tries to continue that in the comic, but eventually gets fed up and retires to Acapulco. Until the Author pulls him back in. [[RageAgainstTheAuthor He doesn't take that very well]].

* AboveGoodAndEvil: Bob claims he and George are this. George doesn't agree.
* ArmCannon: The most powerful one shown. He only charges it once. It blows up a fortress. Its regular setting is enough to defeat most foes instantly. It becomes damaged beyond repair when he accidentally causes the Cataclysm in the Rock Man Universe.
* BerserkButton: The entire last year of story is basically kicked off when George calls him "not that bad of a guy."
* BigBad: Ultimately he's the final foe.
* BurningWithAnger
* CainAndAbel: With George.
* CodeName: Napalm. He briefly changes it to [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Volcanus]] at one point.
* CoolShades
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeflectorShields: His "plastic wrap shielding".
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: It takes an insult about his mother to distract him during one battle.
* FieryRedhead: [[ElementalHair Literally.]]
* FinalBoss: For the comic.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: The same as Proto Man's. He uses them to adjust his visual frequency at one point to see a hologram of Mega Man who is yelling at George.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: He has them, and they claim his mother sent them.
* HalfHumanHybrid: His mother is a succubus. ''Her'' father [[ is]] {{Satan}}.
** DivineParentage
* IWorkAlone: He gives as a reason not to join Mynd. Averted in the final story, when he's got three minions working directly under him, each of which has their own army. He also drags Dr. Wily along in his schemes at least twice.
* [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerk with a Heart of Bronze]]: He's an egocentric prick out for himself, but he does care about his big brother George and has bailed him out of trouble quite a few times with no ulterior motives.
* KillItWithFire: In the later half of the comic, he mostly just shoots fire out of his hands.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: He rarely uses it, but it is there. He can also use a fire shield.
* PaletteSwap: A grey and black Proto Man recolor, justified due to Bob's outfit being scorched black by Protoman during his introduction. He loses the helmet in the final story arc.
* PlayingWithFire
* PsychopathicManchild: Has shades of this at times. His becoming the FinalBoss/BigBad is basically him throwing a massive tantrum against The Author.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor
* [[TomTheDarkLord Bob the Dark Lord]]: His supervillain persona is called Napalm, but everyone calls him Bob anyway. Doesn't make him less terrifying though.
* TookALevelInBadass: Went from an incredibly powerful AntiHero / VillainProtagonist to the BigBad of the entire comic.
* TookALevelInKindness: Subverted. [[spoiler: Turns out this is more or less the secondary reason why he and George became characters in the comic due to his mother's BatmanGambit, the primary for George to [[TookALevelInBadass toughen up in the event Bob would cross the line.]] Their mother hoped that if Bob realized that George would be willing to make the penultimate sacrifce in killing him, that it would've straighted him out. Needless to say, it didn't work as he would've continued being a supervillain before being killed during a battle with Delta Flight (but didn't happen due to a last minute twist.)]]

!! Secondary characters

* {{Jerkass}}: You can't blame him though, his lab is full of freeloaders and robots who don't seem all that grateful.
* MrExposition
* ParentalFavoritism: Towards X.
* PetTheDog: No matter how pissed off he gets about the robots getting beat up and damaged, he always repairs them.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Alternates between being completely drunk and slurring his words to delivering long strings of technobabble.

Mega Man's sister, a foul-mouthed little spitfire in stark contrast to her depiction in the games.

* ArmCannon: Unlike in the canon games, she fights alongside the rest of the cast on several occasions.
* CoolShades: In her battle armor.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DistaffCounterpart: Is more less this to Proto Man when she fights, and is definitely this in personality.
* LittleMissBadass
* ShipTease: With Mike.

Originally a Yellow Devil that attempted to kill the cast. After his defeat, Dr. Light rebuilds him with another personality and he participates in several battles in defense of his new friends.

* ArmCannon: He has one, though he rarely uses it.
* BlindWithoutThem: His "power crystal" is his giant pair of glasses. He's near-sighted.
* FusionDance: With Proto Man and Bass, to become "Protean" and "Bate", respectively. Helmut tries to force Nate to do this, but it doesn't stick.
* LeetSpeak: His official designation is N4-T3.

One of Mynd's minions, who can alternate between a Slash Man form and a ''Purple'' Devil form.

* VoluntaryShapeShifting: Can alternate between his "human" and Purple Devil forms at will after Mynd's control is gone.
* WolverineClaws

Mynd's other minion. Mike is human unlike most of the cast.

* ButtMonkey: The rest of the cast gives him no respect, even when he's seriously hurt.
* CallingYourAttacks: He does so, though they are nonsensical.
* {{Cyborg}}: Dr. Light gave him robotic limbs after he's rescued. [[spoiler: This becomes a plot point during X's arc.]]
* DisneyDeath / NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Though he falls off a cliff and breaks his limbs, he survives by getting squirrels to bring him food.
* HeelFaceTurn: After being rescued, sometime after his defeat.
* HighlyVisibleNinja
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Or using his cybernetic arms to create a shield by moving them really fast.
* MaliciousMisnaming: Hates being called "Ninja Ned", which is Roll's nickname for him.

* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Subverted. He's an evil minion, but defects to the heroes' side once Mynd loses.

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] even after his HeelFaceTurn.
* MistakenIdentity: Roll unknowingly mistakes Mike for "Ninja Ned". Something [[MistakenForAnImposter Edward (The Real Ned) takes great offense to.]]

A robot built by Kalinka, the daughter of Dr. Cossack. Built from such cheap Soviet parts that a single blow from anything kills him.

* ArmCannon: A borderline WaveMotionGun.
* AscendedFanboy: A meta version. The character is based on an actual person's online persona (also named Ran). Many of Ran's qualities (the character sprites, the communist bent, [[TheyKilledKennyAgain the constant death/respawn]]) derive from this persona, though Dave Anez did flesh out some of the previously unexplained details.
* BodyBackupDrive
* CallingYourAttacks: COSSACK BUSTER!!!
* DeathIsCheap: Cheaper than ''fixing'' him, apparently.
* GlassCannon: Ran dies when hit by anything. His Cossack Buster is the most powerful ArmCannon in the comic.
* OneHitPointWonder: Dies if hit by anything. Even a strong breeze.
* RunningGag: His death.
* SpiritAdvisor: For Mega Man during his drug-induced hallucinations.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Ran has a generator pod that automatically beams a new body in for him any time he dies.
* WeaponizedExhaust: Of a sort. His RecoilBoost is so powerful that he can be used as a cannonball. The group utilizes this to create [[SuicideAttack "Ran bombs"]] during the Month of Destruction.
* WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell

[[folder:The Shadowy Author (Shador) - WARNING: UNMARKED SPOILERS]]
A mysterious Author figure in charge of the Rockman universe, as well as several others. Seems to be manipulating events to happen a certain way. In the epilogue, he's revealed to be a future version of the Author from a timeline where the Cataclysm happened and he'd done nothing to stop it.

* BigGood: The closest this comic ever gets to the trope--and in the end, he helps George stop the BiggerBad, Helmut.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite working from the shadows and keeping his motivations close to the vest, he's not a bad guy.
* FusionDance: The version of George we see in the end is actually fused with the Shadowy Author, the same way that Bob is fused with the Helmeted Author. The same goes for the version of the Shadowy Author we see in the last couple years of the comic.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: He's trying to avert the Cataclysm in this timeline. He succeeds in the end, thanks to one innocuous bit of dialogue at just the right moment.
* TheAtoner: The motivation behind his actions.
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Despite being featured on the cast page's villain section. The Shadowy Author is not actually evil and ends up fusing with George to create a chain of events that ultimately end the comic as well as stopping Bob and saving the entire universe as a result. [[spoiler:Even though at the end, It's revealed that the entire comic was all because of George and Bob's mother and even [[LyingCreator the Author was in on it.]] ]]


[[folder:Dr. Wily]]
Dr. Light's rival and the BigBad of the Mega Man games.

* FakingAmnesia: Does this after [[spoiler:Bass]] beats him up at the end of the ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' story arc. The only person who knows the truth is X, who decides not to tell anyone for the sake of the timeline.
* RightBehindMe: In a RunningGag, Dr. Wily has a habit of announcing his plans without noticing anyone within earshot.
-->'''Dr. Wily:''' God Damn It!! How many times are going to do this stupid joke?!?

[[folder:Alternate Mynd]]
A world conqueror from another universe that Bob visits. He decides to attack the primary Mega Man universe because he's bored.

* AffablyEvil: He's usually pretty civil and polite.
* CrazyPrepared: He read the Evil Overlord List.
* InvincibleVillain: He can take out almost any character who has appeared in the comic and is NighInvulnerable thanks to his shields. Outside of his first encounter with Bob and then Bob and George using their Ultimate Attack--and a brief moment of VillainDecay when he got bossed around by Bate[[note]]Bass merged with Nate[[/note]]--nothing has even come close to stopping or hurting him.
* SoLastSeason: When George and Chadling merge to form Charge (in an effort to stop Mynd the way they did Non-Alternate Mynd), Mynd is able to override Chadling, breaking George's FusionDance and causing Mynd to merge with Chadling himself.
* WorthyOpponent: Non-Alternate Mynd.

[[folder:Non-Alternate Mynd]]
The Mynd from the universe the comic is set in, sent to kill Mike on orders from his master.

* AffablyEvil: He's usually pretty civil and polite, he repeatedly gives George and Proto Man the chance to step aside and let him kill Mike.
* BerserkButton: He hates being stepped on.
* InvincibleVillain: Averted, but it took George fusing with Chadling to defeat him.
* TaughtByExperience: How to take out Demons.
* WorthyOpponent: Alternate Mynd.


[[folder:Non-Alternate Mike / Edward The Destroyer (Ninja Ned)]]
The Mike of the main universe, except with a different name. The leader of the ninjas in the main universe and N.A.Mynd's master.

* AffablyEvil: Very straight to the point and civil.
* BadBoss: He kills a few to keep them in line, but this stops working in the final story arc and lets George fry them.
* EnemyMine: He works with the heroes to regain control of his ninja forces.
* MistakenForAnImposter: Inverted. When Edward mistakes Mike, his alternate, as a imposter.


[[folder: Helmeted Author (Helmut) / [[spoiler:Fistandantilus]]]]
An Author from another dimension who the Author was forced to allow into his universe due to union rules, but with heavy restrictions. He seeks to destroy the universe.

* BiggerBad: While Bob becomes the BigBad, the Helmeted Author is a much larger threat and had a huge part in Bob's becoming BigBad.
* BigNo: When the Author inflicts a FateWorseThanDeath on him.
* CrazyPrepared: He sent the heroes off on a wild goose chase just incase Proto Man survived so he wouldn't have backup.
* DeadpanSnarker: He has the Helmeted Author segments just to show off how snarky he is.
* ILied: Sort of. While he is an Author from another universe, removing the helmet doesn't kick him out of the universe like he said it would.
* {{Jerkass}}
* OhCrap: When George uses the Conservation of Energy against him.
* PowerLimiter: The helmet stops him from using his full powers as an Author.
* LongHairedPrettyboy: Embodiment of this trope to the point where the Author, himself, refers to [[spoiler:[[Literature/{{Dragonlance}} Fistandantilus']]]] hair as "bishou hair".
* PhysicalGod: Being that he is a author. He possesses god-like abilities and what seem to be dark versions of what the Author can normally do. His helmet stopped him from using his [[Franchise/{{TheMatrix}} matrix-type powers]] until it was removed by [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nate]].
* RestartTheWorld: After the battle with him and the Author didn't go as planned. Both of them agreed to use their powers to destroy the entire comic which forces George and Proto Man to temporarily be sent into Chick Bot and Rick O' Shay's comics.
* CuckoolanderCommentator: The Helmeted Author Segments. At one point, He even tortured a volunteer named Veemon and killed Cut Man. Who was placed in the demiplane with him. Funnily enough, [[ChekhovsGunman Cut Man's death leads to Helmut's escape and his role as]] TheManBehindTheMan when he fuses with Bob to further a bet he made with The Author.
