Mod/ Madman Prelich...Just There.The first Mod the player gets and the one they control on the world map.
- Captain Obvious: It's easier to list the times that what he points out isn't painfully obvious.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Oh so much. Especially when he becomes Madman Prelich
- Heroic BSOD: Has one when he realizes he caused the massacre of the Deranged Village . It doesn't stick. Later has a bigger one when his music gets turned down. This one sticks until you do his sidequest.
- Idiot Hero: Of all the dumbasses in the game, he is easily one of the biggest.
- Dumbass Has a Point: That said, there are some moments when he ends up saying something really helpful.
- Magic Knight: Without stat modification, he is best suited for this.
- Medium Awareness: The fact that he can apparently hear the admin theme playing suggests this.
- Troll: While he is not naturally aligned with the in-game element, he is really good at pushing people's buttons and gets a lot of enjoyment out of it. This actually works to your advantage several times (Getting Joshscorcher to reforge the Banhammer, causing Protista and the Dead Joke to come out and fight), and to your disadvantage almost as often (The Trollnium Golem at the bottom of Protista's Trollnium Hoard wouldn't have fought you if Prelich hadn't told it to go f**k itself, plus it's likely that this behavior is part of why Magnum was susceptible to the Goat of Chaos's corruption in his side quest.)
Bot Crusher Mod VlarixMagic-Using ModOne of the two mods to join the party at Kashyyyk and the main magic user.
- Admin Theme? What Admin Theme?: Tends to get confused whenever someone breaks the Fourth Wall, such as when Prelich points out the admin theme is playing in the last room of The Hall Of Banterous Bosses. The trope usually averted by the fact that he breaks the fourth wall himself a few times.
- Dead All Along: As revealed in the Ghostception sidequest, he is a ghost of a ghost ten times over. note
- Fragile Speedster: While his Defense is rather sub-par, he has impressive Speed, often to the point of always being first in battle.
- Mr. Exposition: He serves as this for certain things. As a rule of thumb, if he says not to do it, don't do it.
- Only Sane Man: He tends to serve as this.
- Squishy Wizard: Can wipe out anything with the right User Skill, but so much as touch him and he dies.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Not himself, but tends to be the one to ask this of Prelich whenever he does something especially bad.
Punisher Mod MagnumIron-Fisted ModOne of the two mods to join your party at Kashyyyk, and the main physical attacker.
- Demonic Possession: He is briefly possessed in the Age of Magnum Quest, causing his Face–Heel Turn.
- Face–Heel Turn: Has a temporary one during his sidequest. Though to be fair, it was mostly the Goat of Chaos's fault.
- Genius Bruiser: He tends to be one of the smarter ones regarding traps. Half the time, he's the guy you select to examine stuff if you want anything done. He's also the guy to listen to when he says whether or not to do something. This is especially true in Botlantis.
- Genre Savvy: Has a few hints of this, but not to Fourth Wall breaking levels (in fact, he's the one character to not break it).
- Mighty Glacier: Has impressive Strength and Defense, but is somewhat lacking in speed.
Demoted/ Redeemed Mod Tambot.Dual Wielding ModThe third mod to join (and fourth overall) and the only mod who dual wields.
- Dual Wielding: As was stated above, the unique thing about Tambot is that she forgoes a shield in favor of a second weapon.
- Heroic Comedic Sociopath: The biggest one out of all the heroes (and trust us, that is saying something.), almost to the point of full-blown psychopathy That said, her sociopathy isn't very funny when pointed out by Botlantis.
- Magic Knight: Like Prelich, except her Spirit is higher than her Strength, making her more suited for the magic part.
- The Smurfette Principle
- Weak, but Skilled: Implied. While her Strength is almost as low as Vlarix's, she compensates for this by Dual Wielding.
ChewieHates Delibird.* The first Admin you face. Uses The Force
- Berserk Button: If you value your life, do not mention Delibird in front of him.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Represents Wrath. Considering his reaction to his Berserk Button, this surprises no one.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Unless you bothered to level up properly, chances are you won't be able to beat him.
RinceThe Paperboy... Or something. He doesn't really care.* The second Admin you face. Uses Tea to fight.
Psychotic Nekomata/Felix FaloraWait, that's a MAN?!* The third Admin you face. Has long since lost his marbles. No, literally. He's lost his marbles, they're an item you can pick up; find them and give them back to him, and he'll revert back to his sane (yet insanely powerful) form, Felix Falora. And you will promptly regret that decision.
- Bonus Boss: Not just the rematch with him and Isaac, Lord of the Ass, but also the battle with his true self, Felix Falora. Felix is, in particular, a Bonus Boss designed for mere bragging rights due to his sheer difficulty.
- Bold Inflation: Psychotic's botched speech pattern makes use of this often.
- The Caligula: Not explicitly stated, but judging by the way he acts, it's pretty obvious. His battle theme (Gothic Neclord) and dungeon theme (Passacaria) also help in this regard. This is most certainly true of Felix Falora, as proven by the Bad Ending acquired if you decide to join his takeover campaign.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Probably the biggest example in the game. Reverting him back to sanity is how you fight Felix Falora.
- Did You Just Have Sex?: Later in the game, the party walks in on a post-coital Psychotic Nekomata and Lilith.
- The Dreaded: Felix Falora. Even THE AUTARCH quakes in his boots when he returns to normal.
- Dual Boss: Forms part of one later with Issac, Lord of the Ass.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady
- Faux Affably Evil: Felix Falora is always calm, never swears, and is somewhat polite (Which is a stark contrast to most other characters in the game). It should also be noted that he's a MASSIVE psychopath with a (semi-justifiable)god complex who sees everyone as a future corpse.
- Heel–Face Mole: In the Bad Future, pretends to have become good so that you'll help him kill Chaos. As anyone with two brain cells could tell you, he merely tricked you so that he could get the power of the Goat of Chaos for himself.
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant / Nightmare Fetishist: According to his encyclopedia entry in Kashyyyk Manor. Felix Falora calls himself the "Lord of Nightmares"; this is not entirely undeserved as many of his attacks are themed around numerous Creepypasta.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Felix Falora is so named as his IRL counterpart shares the same name for his YouTube channel, and is also the name of one of his first roleplay characters.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Represents Lust. Which is probably why he was the one having sex with Lilith. This could equally represent Felix Falora's lust for power, as proven by his Bad Ending.
- Summon Magic: Felix Falora is able to summon the Pikachu from the "Snow on Mt. Silver" Creepypasta and Pinkamena from MLP fanfic "Cupcakes" as assistants during his battle.
- The Unintelligible: Downplayed. There are times when it can get hard to tell just what it is Psychotic Nekomata is saying, but it's not impossible to figure out. Still, when he transforms back into Felix Falora, the transition into regular speech can be and often is rather jarring.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Invoked.
The Autarch of FlameThe face of the Theater. The very vain face.* The fourth admin you face. Has a Hanzo Sword.
- The Alcoholic: Considering his area has a brewery, he drinks beer in the middle of his battle, and he has a minion called Beer Guy, yes, yes he is.
- Berserk Button: Never damage the Autarch's ego. It causes him to become the "Soul of Flame".
- A surprisingly mild one for him in comparison to the above: Pissing in his beer supply. When he finds out you did so (if you bothered to), he simply responds with "I hate you."
- Bold Inflation: The Soul of Flame can only yell "BURN" and synonyms of "BURN", and it will do so all in caps and with no punctuation.
- Burning with Anger: Angering the Autarch makes him go One-Winged Angel on the party.
- Did You Just Have Sex?: The party can walk in on The Autarch of Flame and Hades having sex. Fortunately for everyone involved, they had finished by the time they walked in.
- Fusion Dance: Quotes the Trope Namer verbatim during the rematch with him and Joshscorcher when they fuse into The Laughing Autarch. He later does it with Hades to become the original Autarch.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Hinted to be one whenever he transforms into the "Soul of Flame"
- Playing with Fire
- One-Winged Angel: The Soul of Flame and, later on, the Laughing Autarch when fused with Joshscorcher. Has an even stronger one, simply called The Autarch, when fused with Hades.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Represents Pride. Considering how vain he is, it's probably pretty obvious.
- Verbal Tic: Has a disturbing tendency to add "mmm!" into most of his sentences, leading Prelich to believe the Autarch wants to make love to his own voice.
Black King KrazierThe Creator of the Theater.* The fifth Admin you face. He fights with godlike powers.
- Big Bad: At first, but he then turns out to be good.*
- Disk One Final Boss
- Duel Boss: After the first phase of his rematch, you can fight him using only Prelich to get the best armor in the game.
- Lazy Bum: This is part of the reason Camelslayer tried to overthrow him. And to take it further, it was this flaw of his that gave birth to the Goat of Chaos.
- Mr. Exposition: serves as this during the second half of the game
- Seven Deadly Sins: Represents Sloth. Appropriately, since, as the leader of the Admins, it was his laziness that caused the events of this game to happen.
ProtistaTROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! * The sixth admin, banished to The Hall of Banterous Bosses for relentless trolling. Fights by trolling and summoning Eduard Khil
Camelslayer and the Forces of Hell
CamelslayerThe Usurper.* The person who gave you this quest so that he could conquer the theater. And thanks to you, he pretty much succeeds. Final Boss of the game.
- Bad Boss: Even before he's revealed to be the Big Bad, he tries to zap Prelich for not paying attention to him at the beginning of the game, and even threatens to kill him. Not to mention he was planning on executing the Dyslexia Innkeeper.
- Berserk Button: Trust us, trying to list them all would take too long.
- Big Bad
- The Caligula: While he is nowhere near as insane as Psychotic Nekomata, his mental state is still rather questionable. Evidence of this includes the people he's had put in Hellsylum for whatever mundane reasons (such as a succubus for getting old and Gabe Newell for not making Half-Life 2: Episode 3), keeping a house cat in a zoo and the presence of cocaine snowmen in his castle. Of course, he's the king of Hell after all, and it may have something to do with the Goat of Chaos's possession.
- Creator Cameo: The real Camelslayer made this game.
- Demonic Possession: He is possessed by the Goat of Chaos for the entirety of the game, up until you kill him, at which point, if you killed the Goat beforehand, he comes back to his senses and gives Prelich his power so that he can punish the Admins.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He managed to take over Hell by trapping Satan in Lake Cocytus.
- Dying as Yourself: In the Best Ending, the Goat's influence leaves him as he dies, and he lives long enough to grant you his power so that you can Curb-Stomp the Admins.
- Good Counterpart: Light Camelslayer.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Oh so much. The smallest thing can set this guy off.
- Light Is Good: Light Camelslayer.
- Manipulative Bastard
- Mr. Exposition: Serves as this at the very begining.
- Obviously Evil: It's pretty clear from his appearance and musical theme that he is not a good person even before it's revealed he was using you to take over the theater. Later Subverted when it turns out that, without the influence of the Goat of Chaos, he isn't evil and is probably one of the nicer people in the Theatre.
- One-Winged Angel: Has three ultimate forms that can be fought depending on how you played the game - Lord Camelslayer, Demon Lord Camelslayer, and Chaotic Camelslayer, the game's True Final Boss.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Especially while he's ruling Hell.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Represents Greed.
- The Stoner: Is high off his ass on weed and cocaine near 24/7. Word of God states that's part of the reason he acts like he does (the other reasons being he is possessed by the Goat of Chaos and that he's on a power trip from being an admin and ruling Hell.
Dyslexia Innkeeper...He's an Innkeeper. What do you want?* He's the innkeeper in Dyslexia Village. Do we need to say anything else? He's also one of Camelslayer's demonic minions.
- Bonus Boss: However, you can only fight him before Camelslayer is revealed to be the Big Bad.
- Butt Monkey: Not only can you start a fire by activating the inn's hexagram (provided you have Rince's Admin Powers), you can also kill him for no reason. Oh, and Camelslayer had him scheduled for execution.
- The Dev Team Thinks of Everything: Camelslayer reveals he was planning to execute him right after you kill him. Since he's a Bonus Boss, you don't have to fight him. If you don't fight him and come back after Camelslayer is revealed to be the Big Bad, you will find out he has been executed.
- Shoplift and Die: He tries to pull this on you for starting a fire in his inn (or rather, activating the portal to William's dimension). He fails.
Pope Benedict ArnoldYes, a Pope went to Hell. Don't think about it.* Resides in a cathedral on Ignis Insulae and guards the Unholy Grail.
- Light Is Not Good: He's a Pope. He's also one of Camelslayer's minions and lives in Hell.
- You Shall Not Pass: He is like this in regards to protecting the Unholy Grail.
DisasterMasterAnd here I though Krazier had too many references.* The guardian of Disaster Tower. Has a peculiar interest in Magnum.
- Bonus Boss
- Creator Cameo: Aside from being a user, he was also the cutscene artist for the game.
- The Corrupter: He seems to play this role to Magnum, claiming his potential is being held back by Prelich, and supposedly succeeds when defeated. However, it's only because he's possessed by the Goat of Chaos.
- Demonic Possession: He was possessed by the Goat of Chaos. Banning him causes the Goat to possess Magnum in turn.
- Mook Promotion: He's a high-ranking user in Camelslayer's legion.
- Wolf Pack Boss: His boss fight revolves around summoning the main cast from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
magnetmaster675Quite the mockery. * A noobish clone of Camelslayer living in the Village of Demons.
- Butt Monkey: He's just a noobish copy of Camelslayer, and is viewed with contempt even by Camelslayer himself.
- Mythology Gag: His existence is a reference to a one-time troll from the second version of the Chaos Theatre Forum on Proboards.
- Shoddy Knock Off: Of Camelslayer.
- Stylistic Suck: His sprite is an 8-bit Dracula and his battle theme is an acapella version of "Dance of Illusions", demonstrating his status as a knock-off of Camelslayer.
Profane Dragon KingB**CH F**K A** F**K!* The king of the Profane Dragons.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Inverted. Amongst the various insults and profane language being spewed everywhere, one of his attacks is shouting "Bob Saget" at the top of his lungs.
- King Mook: He's the lord of the Profane Dragons, a standard non-user enemy found within the appropriately named Profane Palace.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Granted considering the Profane Dragons are species of this trope, but being their leader, he takes it even further.
LilithHer name is Lilith, what did you expect?* Camelslayer's personal succubus and a complete slut.
- Death by Sex: She can do this to whole party minus Tambot if they agree to do her, resulting in the Designated Girl Fight.
- Duel Boss / Designated Girl Fight: The boss fight can become this between her and Tambot if you agreed to the above. Unfortunately, her stats don't change for the solo match...
- Horny Devil: She's a succubus. Need we say more?
MysteriousFigureWho can it be?* Another high-ranking user and one of Camelslayer's top lieutenants. Guards the entrance to Castle Camelslayer.
- Creator Cameo: Similar to how DisasterMaster was the cutscene artist, MysteriousFigure came up with the title for the game in a contest, and earned his boss status as a prize.
- The Dragon: Shares this role with Death to Camelslayer.
- Mook Promotion: Again, he's a high-ranking user enemy. Camelslayer even threatens to have him demoted back to regular status should he fail.
- You Shall Not Pass: Parodies the Trope Namer word for word while guarding the entrance of Castle Camelslayer. Lampshaded by Prelich.
DeathYou know, one of the two things you can always count on.* It's the Grim Reaper from the Castlevania series and Camelslayer's right-hand man.
William, the Janitor of SorrowJust call him the Filth Reaper. * Rince's janitor, and the one killing all the people who sleep in a certain room in the inn at Dyslexia Village.
- Almighty Janitor: Quite literally. While he isn't the hardest boss in the game, he can still be somewhat of a challenge to an unprepared player.
- Dem Bones: He is a skeleton, like Death
- Our Liches Are Different: His battle sprite is essentially a modified Lich from Final Fantasy with a bucket and mop.
Isaac, Lord of the AssMaster of the Arschloch, and wielder of the Ass Blaster* The lord of the ass, and the bonus boss of Psychosis Island.
- Dual Boss: Forms part of one later with Psychotic Nekomata.
- Fartillery: Well, where else would a move called Ass Blaster be fired from?
- Our Dragons Are Different: Well, he seems to be decaying, for one.
LolrusDon't. Touch. The. Bucket.* An elephant seal * residing in the Village of Flame. He's very fond of buckets (or, as he would call them, "bukkits").
- Berserk Button: You will not steal his bucket if you value your life. He will murder you if you do. For that matter, don't promise to get him a bigger bucket and forget to do so before finishing the game.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Berserk Button aside, he's normally a gentle creature.
- Killer Rabbit
- Summon Magic: He becomes summonable once you finish his Fetch Quest.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: His bukket lazor.
JoshscorcherDespite the reviews, he is not a brony.* Also known as the Fiery Joker. Runs the Infernal Bootcamp in the Desert of Flame.
- Berserk Button: Prelich can try pressing many of these and fail. Telling him to "Brohoof" will set him off. So does insulting his status a member of the Marine band. Of course, pushing that one is necessary to forge the Banhammer.
- Burning with Anger: Insulting his status as a marine will piss him off so bad, he can produce flames that both damage you and can forge the Banhammer parts together.
- Fusion Dance: Quotes the Trope Namer verbatim during the rematch with him and the Autarch of Flame when they fuse into The Laughing Autarch.
- Playing with Fire
SatanTHIS ENTRY IS COMPLEEEEETE!!!* The Prince of Darkness and former ruler of Hell, before Camelslayer took over. Uses ice attacks rather than the traditional "fiery" depictions of the Devil.
- An Ice Person
- Sealed Evil in a Can
- Whole Dialogue Reference: His and the party's dialogue in the fight with him is heavily derived from "Beelzeboss" by Tenacious D. Appropriately enough, this is the theme that plays when you fight Satan.
The Goat Of ChaosScapegoat for the Admin's sins. You can scream now.* A goat the Admins put their sins into as an easy way to redeem themselves. This turned out to be a horrible idea, as he is ultimately one of the main reasons this whole quest is happening.
- Bigger Bad: He's ultimately the reason almost everything in the game happens.
- Bonus Boss: One of the bigger bonus bosses of the game. Unusual for this trope, defeating him is required to get the best ending.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Is aware of and fully embraces his status as the embodiment of the Admin's sins.
- The Corrupter: Tempts, weakens, mocks, and confuses those that go too deep into Botlantis so as to turn them evil.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: When Tambot attempts to express sympathy for the Goat, he essentially says to spare him her pity.
- Eldritch Abomination: While he doesn't drive everyone he meets insane, his nature as a literal scapegoat imbued with the sins of the Admins make him pretty incomprehensible. It also helps that he actually can turn people insane by tempting them with power and speaking to the dark sides of them, like he did with Camelslayer.
- His appearance as Chaos is very strange looking, and due to how his sprite appears in the battle screen, there are several spots that could be mistaken for Chaos's face.
- Faux Affably Evil: When you first speak to him, he's somewhat polite, if a bit condescending. As the conversation proceeds, his politeness fades and he becomes even more condescending, all the while it becomes apparent he has a lot of anger towards everything.
- Go Mad from the Isolation: While he probably wasn't all that well adjusted to begin with, being stuck in Botlantis with only Eldritch Abominations for company did not have a good effect on his sanity.
- Hero Killer: As Chaos, he killed the heroes, which is part of what led to the Bad Future the party can visit.
- I Shall Taunt You: A decidedly non-comedic example. Makes a few remarks towards the party as they descend into Lower Botlantis, and is quite possibly a major reason for the various malicious comments that are made towards the party by Botlantis itself.
- Killer Rabbit: Be honest. Did you really expect a GOAT to be this powerful? Lampshaded by Prelich.
- Knight of Cerebus: Little about the Goat is played for laughs, and even the one thing that is (Him being a goat) is only really funny because Prelich or Magnum almost always reacts with what is essentially a Flat "What." Anytime a character mentions him, the game takes a sharp turn towards the serious.
- Mr. Exposition: serves as one of these regarding his origins, the nature of the Admins, and why Camelslayer turned evil.
- Mythology Gag: A weird one. While the idea of the Goat of Chaos existed before Forum Fantasy came out, the game was what really fleshed him out as a part of the Theater and lead to at least one member having plans to use him as a character in their own game.
- Obviously Evil: Oh gee, a bipedal, demonic goat with "Of Chaos" in it's name that has red text when he speaks, is surrounded by a red, demonic aura, and wields a spiked flail? Yeah, TOTALLY a good guy!
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: If you can make out the fact that his eyes glow the same color as his demonic aura, you've probably gone too deep into Batlantis. And at that point, you might as well accept that you've lost
- Seven Deadly Sins: As the embodiment of the Admin's sins, The Goat of Chaos has attacks named after a sin and the Admin that best represents that sin (i.e. Sloth of the Black King).
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Forum Fantasy itself is in no way a serious game (scenes in Botlantis notwithstanding). The Goat of Chaos alone is enough to make it serious simply by being himself. Anytime he's mentioned, the game takes a sharp turn toward the serious.
- Walking Spoiler
KrakisF**K THE WORLD! * One of the three Elder Evils. Sealed within Krakenvania beneath Botlantis, he waits within its throne room
- Bonus Boss: On the same level as Felix Falora. Unlike him though, he actually gives you a stone to teach you a move if you beat him.
- Earth-Shattering Kaboom: His ultimate goal, achieved by having sex with it.
- Extreme Omnisexual: Dude wants to have sex with everything, up to and including the planet itself.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: So much so that Magnum actually has to translate for the rest of the party.
Lord CulusConsume everything... Except a chicken it seems. * One of the three Elder Evils. Sealed within another dimension because he was eating everything around him.
- Affably Evil: Upon meeting him, he engages in civil conversation with the party and doesn't even threaten you. Doesn't change the fact that he's evil on the same level as Felix Falora.
- Bonus Boss: Much like Krakis, on the same level as Felix Falora. Also like Krakis, Lord Culus gives you something for beating him (it's an equipable chicken that reduces MP requirements, by the way.)
- Extreme Omnivore: The entire reason he was sealed away was because he was eating literally everything.
