Characters are organised according to their player-made faction. Also contains some unmarked spoilers in regards to the characters' original works, so you've been warned.

The Valorians multiversal peace-keeping force formerly established within the city of Soleanna. They are finalising a move to Space Colony ARK. Generally contains the most moral of the Multiverse's inhabitants; those who would help others even at great risk to themselves.Tropes related to the Altruistic Valorians:
Ambitious rulers of evil persuasion usually find themselves here, but more often than not, wind up fighting amongst themselves in their vies for power. Still one of the more powerful influences on the Multiverse.Tropes related to the Lords of Midnight:
The Big Bad: Ganondorf. Rules the Lords, and is very protective of his authority.
The Dragon: SA-X and Kerrigan. Both command armies equal or more than Ganondorf's, who will only accept commands from them alone. Either could also potentially wrest control of the faction should he ever die.
The Evil Genius: SA-X double duties as this, due to her forces holding the highest technology in the group.
The Brute: Tabitha. Her only desire is to destroy people she views weaker than her, and joined to get revenge on Apex for leaving her in the lurch. Has not been heard from in some months, though. Dark Samus might count for this position if she weren't The Load.
The Dark Chick: B.B. Hood. Delightfully insane, and isn't afraid to show it while she kills you, which, given her status as one of the strongest members, she could do quite easily.
Smug Snake: Half his followers have deserted him, two powerful factions are his enemy, the Master Sword has chosen a new wielder, and his own queen is conspiring against him. Is any of this noteworthy or significant? Naaaaaah.
A ghostly paladin from the world of Faerun, recently recovered from falling to Blackguard status and escaping Hell itself. Has a tendency to wander away for long periods of travel, training, and contemplation.
Our Ghosts Are Different: Still dead from the end of NWN/HOTU, but mostly corporeal due to Multiverse shenanigans, just with ghostly traits like extreme paleness, floating just above the ground, and being surrounded by a thin layer of fog.
Young Entrepreneur: Recette is the only player character to sell anything other than attack cards, and even sells some things other shops don't carry.
Initially a catch all for Fire Emblem characters or those from Middle Ages settings, the Noblesse Oblige has formed a strong identity based on the fellowship among named members. For this very reason, the faction is remarkably susceptible to having members cursed or kidnapped (occasionally both at once). With their headquarters in ruins, they have retreated to their remaining holdings to plan a counterattack.Tropes associated with Noblesse Oblige:
Five-Man Band: formerly. Sparrow's death and the disappearance of several characters due to their players leaving the site has caused Noblesse Oblige to dwindle to a Power Trio.
Hailing from an ancient land known as Nippon, Amaterasu is the land's Sun Goddess. After wandering among the Multiverse for a while and getting caught up in an incident on the Tower of Twilight, she joined up with the Noblesse Oblige, at first because of a mutual acquaintance, and then out of a simple desire to protect the multiverse just as she had her home.
A woman from a post-apocalyptic wasteland, an artificial construct designed to control an army. Only recently has she been putting that power to good use. Despite being a clone, she had since given birth to a daughter, Hope, who, thanks to a near death experience in the womb, and a fatalaccident after birth, has physically aged four years, and has been granted magical powers stemming from the Netherrealm.
Sparrow is a Hero from the land of Albion, and a man of strange behavior. After Eliwood departed Crimea for unknown reasons, Sparrow took charge of Castle Crimea and currently leads the faction in most of it's decisions.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Thanks to his strange pattern of speech (American English with Ye Olde English thrown in randomly), and adventurous attitude, Sparrow is often seen as a fool to others, especially his foes. However, he is powerful (for a Rank One) and has jumped inside an Infected Dragon's mouth to kill it from the inside, and successfully shot at Mephistopheles in free-fall.
Royals Who Actually Do Something: Manages the economy of Crimea as their "Hero-Regent", while also fighting alongside his troops in battles, and even personally connecting to all of the Castle Crimea staff.
Former head of the Divine City's Academy of Wizardry, Tyurru is a sorceress who specialises in controlling water. She is most often accompanied by a water sprite named Liva, and is famous for terraforming part of the mostly barren Moon.
Tranquil Fury: Has unblinkingly turned on a fellow faction member for harming her maid. When pushed, she can be... unsettling to watch.
Villainous Friendship: a type-II, she believes, with her maid, Sakuya. Although the latter finds Shizuru's alias both insulting and ridiculous, her open disdain has gradually mellowed, bringing their friendship closer to a type-I.
Another of the three founding members; an assassin from ancient times, ready to put his skill to good use in the Multiverse.
Put on a Bus: the player has left the board, due to IRL issues. His character is implied to have vanished, too - though a remarkable likeness, more than eighteen months after his disappearance, has shown up in some in-universe media.
Revenge: Started the faction as a method of extracting justice on whoever drained his hard-earned skills.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: Like all characters, was once just a lowly Rank 1 who was more a threat to the average purse. Even when he started to get more powerful he was always more an anti-villian what with helping out a against the Infected. After the Infected Invasion, however, and after he got back from Deep Space and he is suddenly the leader of one of the more powerful and dangerous factions, allied with another evil faction, working on allying with another, and is currently trashing the main mall of the entire multiverse. Not so harmless indeed.
Big Bad: After Meph's vanishing act, has begun to try and take this title. With insanely powerful stats that only a handful of people could even hope to fight, is well on his way.
Elite Mooks: The fluff behind the summons Alan has. They are supposed to be the elite/veteran versions of his usual mooks, hence why they have actual stats.
The Dark Chick: Millenia fills this role perfectly. More than happy to flaunt her "assets" and use them to kill you.
The Chick: Ally is this, an odd hero role in an all villain group. While she serves Alan with unquestioning loyalty due to her machine brain, she will not harm anyone and is simply with the group to help keep them alive.
Sixth Ranger: Ray who is more a cross between the Dragon and Brute. Only not tough enough and too smart to be a brute, and not a capable leader like the Dragon. Instead he fits his own niche as spymaster/assassin.
Villainous Friendship: A Type 1 between Derek and Alan. It will not end well for whoever hurts either of them in front of the other.
Even Evil Has Standards: Derek, while willing to kill POWs and anyone who is a soldier, refuses to kill civilians and noncombatants.
A Father to His Men: Derek is more than willing to take any bullet, spell, or sword meant for his men.
Sociopathic Soldier: Is more than willing to use hostages, dirty tricks, or any other under-handed tactics to win. Is the third type mostly due to his training rather than a traumatic event(though the training could be considered traumatic)
The Man Behind the Man: Well woman in this case...or virus. While Alan is the more well known and obvious threat, Jenova is working behind the scenes with him. Considering what she plans to do to the multiverse, people are going to wish Alan was the worst problem.
Defrosting Ice King: Very minor case. In light of losing his power base and having to deal with normal people instead of complete maniacs, Smug Snakes, and warmongering bosses to get it back, he's being forced to interact socially to garner connections. Reisen and his soldiers are actively trying to encourage this, but it's unlikely to happen on a major scale.
Guns Are Useless: Is highly vexed that guns aren't as effective in the multiverse as they were in his home universe, and plans to eventually avert this.
The Unfettered: As seen in a recent topic with Leonora, his turning over a new leaf at the end of his second game appearance has done nothing to remove his pragmatism or vicious streak. You almost feel sorry for those pirates...
Those whom have no interest in factions, or those whom have abandoned theirs. These people work on their own.
Good Is Old-Fashioned: Leonora is one of the few to still have very few clues as to how technology really works, despite being friends with Roll, the Robot Maid . She also lives in a low-tech home on Gaia. Justified in that she comes from a low-technology world herself.
Healing Hands: Her healing is always portrayed as coming from her hands, although her sleeves often cover the process.
Nice Hat: Some characters (Notably Mordecai) seem to be a little too focused on Leonora's mitre...
The Red Mage: With a heavier leaning on White Magic (Leonora is in the running for having the strongest healing techniques of any Rank 1 Character), Leonora is still capable of defending herself with Black Magic . Of course, when she runs out of magic, she is literally incapable of dealing damage.
40 year old photojournalist that is an expert in zombie killing, despite being infected himself and needing to take medicine to suppress the zombie virus.
Awesome yet Practical: Franks Blast Frequency Gun may be bulky, but it's easily customizable that he turned it into a gun that shoots lightning with just a few simple tweaks and a cattle prod duct taped to the bottom of the barrel. He also already knows how to make it not only shoot lightning, but also lasers that EXPLODE and concentrated sonic blasts, and is simply looking for the materials to do this with and figure out how to make it fire all three attacks at the same time.
Badass Grandpa: Despite being overweight, middle aged, and technically a zombie, Frank can perform incredible acrobatics and by now developed his own fighting style called 'Frank Kwon Do' mixing Karate and Wrestling moves.
Deadpan Snarker: Invoked by Frank regularly. Whenever something awful happens to him, he just starts laughing in disbelief.
Dimensional Traveler: Frank eventually learns that most of his cameo appearances actually happened, he just forgot before entering the multiverse. It is later blamed on the Multiversal Drain.
Dirty Old Man: Frank constantly flirts with most young females he meets, especially Samus, most likely because his love life has been less then succesful thus far to no fault of his own. Also can be considered a Chivalrous Pervert.
Hetero Sexual Life Partners: In the context of Celestial Refresh, Frank and Mike Haggar become incredibly close, to the point where Frank almost decided not to return to the multiverse and stay with him and the rest of his newly acquired friends if he wasn't forced to by Pandora.
Iconic Item: Franks camera, which he uses in every topic he's in at one point or another.
"He wondered if he'd have to pay them, which wouldn't be a problem, since there's apparently a bank on the Moon that just handed out free money."
Pre Asskicking One Liner: "Spaghetti Time" Said before attacking Rose Shepard, Paletress, and Vanille on the 2nd Hearts Day Slugfest, and again, before shooting Chibiterasu in the face and winning said Slugfest.
Older Than They Look: Though look like his age, which is forty-two, Frank at one point regained his youth and traveled across multiple universes until getting hit with amnesia about these events around the time where he entered the multiverse, where he reverted back near his age in Case West.
Red Oni, Blue Oni: Though they're both photographers, Frank's hot blooded method of getting the scoop is to determinedly get the facts by any means necessary , Red Oni, while Photo veers more to more subtle, level headed ways to let the facts come to her, keeping her eyes and ears open for an opportunity for the facts to come to her, Blue Oni.
Seen It All: Surviving more than one zombie infestation, traveling across multiple universes, traveling across the multiverse to write tabloids for the Shy Guys, and being middle aged has resulted in Frank really taking things in stride. Lampshaded when he and Mike Haggar have to fight [[Video Game/Tekken Alex and Rojer Jr, a velocoraptor and a kangaroo wearing boxing gloves.
"Mike, eventually, you learn to stop asking these questions."
Vitriolic Best Buds: Frank has a humanized Photo Finish as a partner. She's a rather serious and famous fashion photographer, Frank is an unknown, wacky photojournalist and possible cross dresser. It's impossible for them to not insult each other every now and again. The same can also be said between his relationship with Samus and Alan Wake, overall, Frank's closest friends are the ones that he makes fun of and vice versa.
Zombie Infectee: Unlike in canon, before entering the multiverse, Frank went through a majority of his appearances in other, non-Dead Rising games, and apparently at one point got himself cured of his infection.
A young girl with rabbit ears and tail, who was cursed with a set of cat ears. Endlessly optimistic, adventurous, determined, and hot tempered.
Character Development: While her boundless determination is still there, recent events are making her a bit more cautious and considerate towards others.
Determinator: Despite the below, she's still working towards her goals of removing her curse and helping Chelsea find a way home.
From Bad to Worse: Her cat ears are gone! ...So long as nobody says 'cat' or 'kitten' or the like, and saying them more then once in a row without saying 'bunny' or 'rabbit' to reverse it starts adding MORE cat features.
I Need A Freaking Drink: Or rather 'I Need To Lay Down', after the end of the below Trauma Conga Line.
Trauma Conga Line: After BMD and weeks looking for a cure with Chelsea without results, she went dimension hopping to look for cures in other worlds (forgot to plan a way back), found out Chelsea got dragged along with her, saw Chelsea get mauled (non-fatally) because she distracted her in a fight (something she could have arrived to help with earlier if she wasn't obsessed with searching for a cure first), found a guy named Ventus who tried to help her find a cure, and then was hit with three Hope Spots in a row before learning the attempt to remove her curse made it even worse.
Vitriolic Best Buds: With Chelsea. The two are practically opposites, but they do genuinely enjoy the each others company and act with concern when the other is hurt.
A young woman who previously caused a lot of pain and suffering, all she wants is to be happy for once.
Break the Cutie: Pyrrha was already pretty broken when she first arrived. Then she tried to destroy Soul Edge, got killed instead, got killed again while already dead, raised as a zombie and caused even more damage, only to be resurrected by a god, and told what she'd done.
Properly Paranoid: Pyrrha's paranoia is strong enough for her to act as a Negate First Strike ability.
Red Right Arm: Pyrrha still has her red right arm hidden under her sleeves.
Wrong Genre Savvy: Pyrrha believes that if her secret is revealed to the world, she'll be hunted down and killed. In reality, the Multiverse has had more than one high-profile Heel-Face Turn, and she'd likely be accepted. Justified in that her old world, she was right.
A young man struggling with both his desire for vengeance, and his gnawing guilt over previous actions all while working towards saving his father.
The Atoner: Wylfred recognizes the errors of his past and is trying his best to make up for them, even though a part of him believes that his betrayals of Ancel and Fauxnel will always condemn him.
Byronic Hero: Elements of this mixed with Anti-Hero due to his father's sacrifice, and a rather long talk he had with Lenneth.
Defeat Means Friendship: Subverted by the fact it was a draw, but Wylfred was able to finally put aside his desire to slay Lenneth after battling her just moments after she arrived in the multiverse.
Enemy Mine: With Ailyth. One moment they are fighting to the death over the fact that Ailyth had played Wylfred like a fool during his Roaring Rampage of Revenge, the next moment they find themselves thrown into the multiverse together. While they both benefit from working with each other when Wylfred isn't bordering upon attacking her, it's a tentative arrangement as far as Wylfred is concerned. Of course, Ailyth has other ideas...
... If there was one thing besides magic that Misery considered herself adept at it was proper civility. These were guests in her home - it would be rude to interrupt the proper flow of conversation. Misery may have the moral inhibitions of the average mad wizard or depraved academic - which, in many ways, were both titles she qualified for - but she DID have standards of her own nonetheless.
Civilian Villain: Made an attempt at reform by joining Multiverse Garden. It didn't work out.
The Dragon: Was seemingly this to Shizuru before the underworlds collapse.
Kick the Dog: seems to be doing this with pretty much every person she meets, with a heavy dose of I Shall Taunt You as well, unless she has a good reason not to. So far targets have been Wylfred and Jin, non fatally, with Roll Light being blown up, much to the consternation of many.
Tired of continually being stomped on by Mario, eaten by Yoshi, and used as projectile weapons by everyone else, the Shy Guys have driven themselves to become the predominant economic powerhouse in the multiverse. This has come with the clout to form their own military, police force, and (the unfounded rumors of) a mafia. Despite this, Shy Guys tend to stay out of all but the most multiversal threatening conflicts. There's more profit to be had that way.
A knight from the universe of Vanda, keeper of the four Elemental Crystals.
Aborted Arc: The storyline he began only lasted to the end of the competition and the naming of the four elemental guardians; the disappearance of the storyteller behind the plotline resulted in it being abandoned.
