    The Gang 

Pictures of Edd, Tom, Matt and Tord by ScaredyAsh006, used with permission.

Shared Tropes

  • Adorkable: With the exeption of Tord, they where all like this at some time (Edd is the prime example, Tom was before he Took a Level in Jerkass, and Matt has recently been shown these traits, like in Hide and Seek, and Fun Dead).
  • Aerith and Bob: Edd, Matt and Tom are all very common names in the Anglosphere, but "Tord" is likely to sound much more unusual and exotic to English-speakers' ears. Subverted in that it's actually a very common name in his native Norway.
  • Author Avatar: The main characters are based off of Edd and his friends; TomSka, Matt and Tord.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: While it isn't hard to tell them apart in the first place, they all have differently-colored hoodies to further tell them apart. Edd wears green, Tom wears blue, Matt wears purple (though he also is usually seen wearing a green overcoat) and Tord wears red.
  • Flat Character: All four of them were more or less indistinguishable from one another, but they eventually became more defined around the time Tord left.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Edd is the Optimist, Matt is the Realist, Tom is the Cynic, Tord was the Apathetic.
  • Improbable Weapon User: When it comes to brawl, they'll grab whatever is close to them. Sometimes it's a shotgun, sometimes it's a mop.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: They are never seen working. Edd is implied to be an artist, (like his real life counterpart) but is rarely seen drawing anything.
  • Pungeon Master: Edd takes the cake, but Matt and Tom also drop a pun every once in a while.
  • True Companions: They live in one house and usually treat each other with respect. Emphasis on usually.

Edd

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__edd_by_scaredyash006-d42uizx_680.png

The unofficial leader of the quartet/trio who wears a green hoodie, an optimistic artist fond of cola, bacon and puns.

Voiced by: Edd Gould (2004-2012), Tim Hautekiet (2012-present)

Tom

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__tom_by_scaredyash006-d42sob6_4103.png

The sarcastic bitter eyeless alcoholic in a blue hoodie. Resident Jerkass and voice of reason, whenever Edd doesn't fulfill that role.

Voiced by: Tom Ridgewell

Matt

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__matt_by_scaredyash006-d42q254_7226.png

The square-chinned ginger, he wears a purple hoodie and green overcoat. Vain and dumb, though the latter trait was absent in earlier episodes.

Voiced by Matt Hargreaves

Tord/The Red Leader

Tord was the fourth main character in the show. A Norwegian trigger-happy gun nut wearing a red hoodie, he was Put on a Bus after the episode "Moving Targets", because Larsson wanted to start his own career (This didn't go well).

Voiced by: Tord Larsson (2005-2008), Alex L'Abbe (Zombeh Attack 1), Jamie Spicer-Lewis (The End)

  • Affably Evil: While he isn't evil (or he at least doesn't show it until "The End"), he is violent.
  • Badass Longcoat: Sported a black one in earlier episodes and wears a blue military coat in his wanted poster.
  • Berserk Button: In "The End (Part 2)", Tord decks Matt so hard in the face that he goes flying across the room over almost pressing a button. He probably would have gone further had Edd not stepped in to calm him down.
  • Big Bad: He's this for The End, and possibly the whole of Eddsworld since WTFuture (maybe even before them), being the most dangerous threat the gang faces.
  • Back for the Finale: Or at least, that of the Eddsworld Legacy-produced episodes - he returns in the "The End" two-parter.
  • The Bus Came Back: In a handful of comics and episodes (such as "Fun Dead" and "PowerEdd", he shows up as a background cameo, and may be the "Red Leader" who Future Tom calls in "WTFuture". He finally returns in a major role in The End.
  • The Cameo: After his departure he's been referenced in most episodes.
  • Evil Former Friend: Assuming he wasn't Evil All Along he's this for Edd and Matt.
  • Face–Heel Turn: it's implied he joined the "Enemy Army" after Moving Targets. But he could of just been Evil All Along.
  • False Friend: He's shown to be this for Edd and Matt in "The End".
  • Gun Nut: Has an unhealthy obsession with guns and firepower. And even giant robots.
  • He's Back: He's back with the gang in "The End", but he's back for bad intentions.
  • Misplaced Accent: Subverted in that Tord's original actor played him with a typical Norwegian accent. However, his new voice actor in The End plays it with a slight Russian accent.
  • Norse by Norsewest: Averted. He isn't portrayed as a stereotypical Scandinavian: he's ginger-ish, average looking, and pretty damn violent.
  • Odd Name Out: Edd, Matt and Tom are all very common names in the Anglosphere, but "Tord" is likely to sound much more unusual and exotic to English-speakers' ears. Subverted in that it's actually a very common name in his native Norway.
  • Put on a Bus: He drives off at the start of "25 ft. Under the Seat".
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Tord's main color scheme is a red hoodie and black pants, and is revealed to be overtly evil in The End.
  • Take Over the World: We find out in The End that he has a giant robot hidden inside Edd's house built to do this.
  • Token Evil Teammate: More so than Tom. Paintball with real guns, anyone? Come The End, he's outright villainous.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Tord wasn't exactly nice to begin with, but The End has him deliberately coerce Tom into leaving while he takes his place, and then shows him having become a wanted terrorist, plotting to Take Over the World with a Humongous Mecha. Then again, it's implied he was always this way. (Or at least since after "Moving Targets)
  • Trigger Happy: Oh, that's scratching the surface...
  • Walking Spoiler: The fact that he's in "The End" is the least spoilery thing about him in it.
  • With Friends Like These...: He didn't get on well with Tom. And when he returns, we find out he still doesn't.
