[[folder:Major characters]]

!!'''Johnny Gomez'''

One half of the show's commentary team. The "StraightMan" of the group, Johnny is more professional than his co-host Nick Diamond, and is constantly calling him out for his crazy behavior and {{zany scheme}}s. Has fought and killed Sam Donaldson along with Nick Diamond.

* CatchPhrase / SigningOffCatchPhrase:
--> "Good fight, good night!"
* CombatCommentator
* DeadpanSnarker: To Nick whenever the latter acts oddly.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Footage from the Deathmatch Vault as shown he's been commentating since the late 1920's.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Nick's red.
* TheStraightMan

!!'''Nick Diamond'''

The other commentator. Nick is far more eccentric than Johnny is, and has been shown to be an alcoholic and a divorced father of one. Nick is constantly getting himself into trouble, and has participated in (and won) Deathmatches against Zatar the Alien, The Satyr, and Sam Donaldson (the last one with the aid of Johnny). Has an intense hatred of Debbie Matenopoulos.

* BerserkButton: Zatar pushed this when he kills [[Franchise/StarWars Peter Mayhew and Mark Hamill]]...[[EyeScream and paid for it]].
* BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: In the "Turn ''On'' Your TV Day" episode, Nick kidnapped a book lover and TV hater who attempted to storm the announcers' booth, then tortured him into watching and enjoying television and learning to hate reading. Nick seems to think it's for the greater good, at least; Johnny is quick to remind everyone that he had no part in it.
* ButtMonkey: Whenever something goes horribly awry, expect him to usually be the one at the receiving end of it.
** This is taken to such an extreme that, on one of the few episodes where he has a normal day where nothing bad happens to him, Johnny Gomez is freaking ''terrified'' to be around him, donning a helmet and drinking heavily to calm his nerves, thinking that when something eventually ''does'' happen to Nick, it'll be so big that he'll get caught in the crossfire. He only calms down at the very end when [[spoiler: Nick is abducted by aliens to [[AnalProbing be anally probed]].]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* CombatCommentator
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Despite his cowardly, weasily ways, he has several deathmatch victories under his belt, most noteably against Zatar the alien and a satyr he fought in Rome during a time travel adventure.
* TheLancer: Often to the more laid back Johnny.
* MushroomSamba: During his coma arc, when Nick Jr. accidentally turns up the morphine.
* NoodleIncident:
-->'''Johnny:''' ''(during phone call)'' Good GOD! That's HORRIBLE!
-->'''Nick:''' If that's the A.S.P.C.A., I'm not here.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Footage from the Deathmatch Vault as shown he's been commentating since the late 1920's.
* PutOnABus: The coma story arc.
** TheBusCameBack: Or in this case, the ''ambulance''. Even better; [[MomentOfAwesome it crashes through the stadium entrance. With Nick driving]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Johnny's blue.

!!'''Mills Lane'''

The referee. He is a grumpy old man who has a very laissez-faire attitude toward the rules, and serves mainly to open the fight and declare the winner once somebody is dead. Was voiced by himself during the show's original run, but couldn't return when the show was UnCanceled due to the fact that he had suffered a stroke. He has fought and killed Series/JudgeJudy and Jesse Camp (both times in matches he wasn't supposed to be a part of) in the Deathmatch ring.

* AsHimself
* TheAlcoholic: Implied in one episode that he dulls the annoyances of the job with booze.
* CatchPhrase:
-->"Let's get it on!" -- at the start of each match
-->"I'll allow it!" -- whenever a fighter complains that the other person is breaking the rules
--> "The winner is... <winner's name here>!" or "<winner's name here> is the winner!" -- at the end of each match
* CoolOldGuy
* ImAHumanitarian: There are several instances where he's seen eating human flesh. The Emeril Legasse vs. The Two Fat Ladies fight being one of them. Shortly after the expulsion, Austin informs Lane that the chips he was eating were actually the charred remains of [[Series/{{Felicity}} Keri Russell]], which didn't faze him.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Mentions that his mother traded him for a pair of underwear and a cigarette when he was 2.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Footage from the Deathmatch Vault as shown he's been refereeing since the late 1920's.
* TheSmartGuy: It comes with the territory of being a judge and a referee.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite the ridiculous over the top concept of the Deathmatch, he will always call a match fairly, and also enforces a ban of firearms during the matches, barring special circumstances.
* RetiredBadass: As he shares the real life Mills Lane's history, he's a retired welterweight boxer and former U.S Marine.
* WouldntHitAGirl: As long as he doesn't ''physically'' see her. As mentioned above, he fought Judge Judy blindfolded and won.

!!'''Stacy Cornbred'''

CDM's first interviewer, and without a doubt the most professional of the three. Known for her sunny outlook and for being the only interviewer that both Johnny and Nick liked (it's even implied that she and Johnny once dated). In the second season, she [[McLeaned died of spontaneous human combustion after her voice actress left the show.]] She later re-appeared as a zombie, trying to take her job back from Debbie, only to be [[LudicrousGibs messily defeated.]]

* BackFromTheDead: In Halloween Episode II.
* CameBackWrong: Type III, but only towards Debbie Matenopolous.
* TheChick
* KilledOffForReal: Twice!
* McLeaned: The reason for the above trope was because her voice actress left the show.
* MirrorScare: Does this to Debbie in Halloween Episode II.
* NoZombieCannibals: Averted after being rammed through a door by Debbie.
* ShesGotLegs
* SpontaneousHumanCombustion: How she dies the first time.
* TheRival: To Debbie Matenopoulos.
* ZombieApocalypse: Tries to start one to get revenge on Debbie.

!!'''Debbie Matenopoulos'''

Formerly of ''The View'', Debbie was brought in as the new interviewer after Stacy died. She was far less professional than Stacy was, often acting in a ditzy manner and asking combatants whatever came to her mind. She and Nick Diamond have an extreme dislike of one another while she and Johnny date for a brief period during the show. She defeated the zombie Stacy Cornbred in one episode. Debbie was voiced by herself.

* {{As H|imself}}erself: The only female interviewer to actually be a celebrity.
* BeautyMark: Above her lip.
* TheDitz
* {{Jerkass}}: When she started out, she was pretty rude to the staff ''(especially Nick)'' and the celebrities. She mellowed out a bit as time went on, however.
* MsFanservice
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Averted. Her pregnancy story arc may give off shades of this, but she wasn't actually pregnant when it was written.
* ReplacementScrappy: For Stacy Cornbred fans. She's also treated as this in-universe by Nick.
* ShipTease: Often with [[SlapSlapKiss Johnny Gomez]]. It's even hinted that [[spoiler: he's her baby's father.]]
* PutOnABus: Like Stone Cold, she does not appear in the reboot.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: When she finishes off Stacy Cornbred's zombie.
-->'''Debbie:''' Now ''stay'' dead, bitch.

!!'''Tally Wong'''

The new interviewer that was brought in when the show was UnCancelled. Although more intelligent than Debbie, Tally is every bit as unprofessional, albeit in a different manner. She is extremely self-centered, and likes to insult the celebrities and the hosts. Not surprisingly, she and Johnny Gomez quickly became enemies.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: A big one. Despite her wide smile for the camera, she's pretty dismissive towards the celebrities she interviews at times, and is very disrespectful towards Johnny.
* CatchPhrase: ''"What are you gonna do, bring back Stacy Cornbred?"''
* EvilCounterpart: To Stacy Cornbred. Whereas Stacy was genuinely courteous and got along with the staff fairly well, Tally can come across as disingenuous and even insulting in her demeanour, and is openly spiteful of both Johnny Gomez and Stacy Cornbred.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even moreso than Debbie!
* ReplacementScrappy: Lampshaded in-universe.
* SleepingWithTheBoss: Johnny and Nick suspected she was doing this, due to all the special privileges she was getting. Whether she was or not was never proven.
* SmallNameBigEgo


The show's resident science, medical, and weapons expert. Has designed, among other things, HumongousMecha and genetically-engineered monsters (made using the DNA of dead celebrities) for use on the show. Has defeated Vince [=McMahon=], Tom Cruise and Bruce Willis (the latter two in a match he wasn't part of),. Was voiced by himself. Did not return when the show was UnCancelled, which was explained in universe by Nick saying that he was too expensive to bring back.

* AsHimself
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: When Stone Cold tells you to do something, you damn well better do it.
* BaldOfAwesome: Along with Mills Lane.
* BerserkButton: When Creator/TomCruise and Creator/BruceWillis were fighting over who cushioned the fall from a little girl (each one pulling one of her arms) Stone Cold personally bashed their skulls together. He then got to go clubbing with Creator/NicoleKidman and Creator/DemiMoore.
** He's fairly slow to anger, but do NOT insult him, he will kick your ass for it. He once threw Nick off the announcers booth because he called him a "sweaty gorilla".
* TheBigGuy
* FriendToAllChildren: (see above)
* GadgeteerGenius
* GeniusBruiser
* PutOnABus: In the reboot.
* SouthernFriedGenius


[[folder:Recurring celebrities]]


The undisputed champion of ''Celebrity Deathmatch''. He has fought and killed UsefulNotes/CharlesManson, Music/{{Hanson}} and the Music/SpiceGirls (in a match that he wasn't even a part of), Music/GarthBrooks, and Ricky Martin, and has performed his music on the show. He voiced himself in two of the episodes that he appeared in, and has not appeared since the show was UnCancelled.

* AffablyEvil: He's the most evil man in America, but whenever he's being interviewed, he's rather polite and is on quite friendly terms with Nick and Johnny.
** But he really hates Hanson and the Spice Girls.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: He usually seems to be a normal (if unrelentingly evil) guy, but in his fight with Ricky Martin, his hand, when cut off, is shown to be able to act on its own, change in size, and reattach itself. It's possible that he's some sort of demon or human-demon hybrid.
* CardCarryingVillain: The most evil man in America.
* [[SignatureMove Signature]]/FinishingMove: The Tunisian Skeleton Pull Of Death. It worked perfectly against Charles Manson, but when it backfired against RickyMartin, Marilyn's hand came to life inside Ricky and still finished the job anyway.
* TheVoiceless: He didn't speak in the pilot short.

!!'''Zatar the Alien'''

A green, [[{{Cyclops}} one-eyed]] alien who has showed up several times to wreak havoc on the show. In his appearances, he has killed Music/CelineDion (after possessing her), [[Music/TheProdigy Keith Flint]], Creator/MarkHamill and Peter Mayhew, before he was finally killed by a pissed-off Nick Diamond. A later episode showed that he was NotQuiteDead, and he blew up the Deathmatch arena with an ''Film/IndependenceDay''-style laser blast.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: In his second appearance, he tells Johnny and Nick he plans to get them until he's distracted by an ''{{Series/Ultraman}}'' T-shirt he wants to buy.
* GoKartingWithBowser: Before he blew up the arena, he spends his time there buying collectibles and memorabilia.

!!'''Marv Albert'''

The show's first commentator, who only appeared in the original ''Cartoon Sushi'' short and in the "Deathbowl '98" SuperBowl special. Best known for his coverage of the fight between Pamela Anderson and Creator/RuPaul, in which he did nothing but [[MaleGaze endlessly rewind a clip of Pamela's jiggling breast implants]]. Was voiced by himself.
* CatchPhrase: [[BigYes YES!!]]

!!'''Don King'''

Appeared in several episodes of the first season, where he would be killed as a RunningGag, only to [[TheyKilledKennyAgain return in the next episode]]. Later on, in season 2, he would partake in a genuine Deathmatch, fighting (and losing to) Donald Trump.

* LoonyFan: He's a big fan of fights.

!!'''The Masked Man'''

A mysterious man in a mask who, during two Season 5 episodes, would run into the ring and start beating up whoever was winning the fight. It was very heavily implied that he was Music/MichaelJackson.


The most recurring female fighter in the show with a total of three matches. Has fought and killed Creator/RuPaul and Tommy Lee, but lost a match against Heather Locklear.
* ActionGirl: Not so much at first, but she became a great fighter once she got the hang of it.
* BoobsOfSteel: The bustiest woman on the show, also has the best winning record for women combatants.
-->'''Marv Albert:''' [[spoiler:[[OverlyLongGag Let's see it again!]]]]
* BerserkButton: Things involving Tommy Lee. At first it was to protect him. Pam fought against Ru Paul because s/he was hitting on Tommy. In her next fight, she kicked Heather Locklear's ass for trying to kill Tommy. Eventually, Pam's berserk button became Tommy himself; she was upset that he had the nerve to challenge her to a deathmatch, and then he spent the fight making jokes about her. SHE KICKED HIS ASS INTO NEXT WEEK.
* MsFanservice: It's ''Pamela Anderson''. Of cource she fills this role.
