The Fuzzy Knights
MossfootA green teddy bear that's been all over the world. Leader of the Fuzzy Knights and Game Master of the group.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Despite a somewhat cynical approach to Game Mastering, he's one of the most moral characters in the comic and will do his best to get along with everyone... but this doesn't mean he won't Get Dangerous when he needs to.
- Embarrassing Nickname: "M. F." or "MF." Mostly he hates it because he can't shake the suspection that it's meant to stand for something else...
- Game Master
- The Hero: Emerges as this once the story gets going.
- Only Sane Man
- Straight Man: His main function in earlier strips.
- Walking the Earth: He's traveled all over the world, only in later years starting to stay in any one place for any length of time.
VioletA purple teddy bear with a bow around her ear. A slightly violent chick who used to live on the street till she met Mossfoot and eventually moved in with him and became his girlfriend.
- Action Girl
- Berserk Button: Like Sara from Knights of the Dinner Table, the easiest way to rile her up is to make sexist comments.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Tends to play these kinds of characters — fittingly enough, since she herself is a somewhat toned-down version of the trope.
- Deadpan Snarker: Probably the most sarcastic of the Knights.
- Dungeonmaster's Girlfriend: Averted. In spite of accusations, Mossfoot treats her just like another player on the table.
- Hot-Blooded: Her nickname isn't "Violent Violet" for nothing.
TargetA black and white toy cat who's the newest member of the Fuzzy Knights group (he was introduced in the second strip, as a replacement for Dog).
- Butt Monkey
- Casanova Wannabe: Sometimes displays traits of this, to Violet's frustration.
- Cat Stereotype: Like so many other black and white cats in fiction, he's a lovable loser — affable but timid and mostly unsuccessful at anything he attempts.
- Deadpan Snarker: Along with Violet.
- Foil: In the author's own words, he was introduced to the comic as a foil to Ben, and sometimes to Violet.
- Her Code Name Was Mary Sue: Whenever he GMs, the game tends to devolve into this, with one NPC powered up to an insane degree killing the PCs. When Mossfoot asks him what the kobold that just grew up three sizes and starting killing them with five attacks a turn looks like, he ends up describing his own appearance. He's actually not allowed behind the screen without a doctor's note.
- Meaningful Name: His temperamental Owner uses him as target practice to vent frustrations.
- Lovable Coward: More in real life than in the game. It's more than hinted that he has some severe issues from living with an Owner who treats him as a punching bag.
- Na´ve Newcomer: In early strips.
- Pyro Maniac: Probably as a result of his pent-up anger issues. Give him a flamethrower, and he becomes lethal.
BenA toy rabbit and the Munchkin of the group, who speaks in a fake Scottish accent.
- Catch Phrase:"Hoody Hoot, Mon!"
- Chaotic Stupid
- Fake Nationality: He's not actually Scottish (he was made in China), but he'll insist that he is, playing up the accent and any stereotype he can think of... despite having a very shallow understanding of Scottish culture in general.
- Fearless Fool: He has definite traces of this, both in-game and outside the game.
- Leeroy Jenkins: He's very impulsive. Apparently he doesn't know any other way to play.
- The Wonka: He's half this and half Too Dumb to Live. His completely-impulsive play style often seems ridiculous, but he's extremely good at taking bizarre ideas and making them work... until he does something spectacularly stupid for no reason or instant gratification and ends up killing the entire party.
The "Legion of Doom"During F.I.G.H.T. in The Tournament War, HamaEstra assembled his own roleplaying group to participate. After the War, they more or less stuck together.
- Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: As HamaEstra put it, the reason they're formed a team and banded together is because no one else would play with them for many legitimate reasons.
HamaEstraThe Big Bad of the first story, The Tournament War. Is a character of Fuzzy Urban Legend for being a literal Killer Game Master, using the games as a cover to perform gruesome experiments.
- A God Am I: "I AM THE STORY!"
- A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: Frogerik taught him about the Story much like he taught Mossfoot. The hamster realizing his existence was dependent on human imagination did not turn out very well.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy
- Deadly Game: Often turns his games as GM into these.
- Faux Affably Evil: He can be very polite and personable when he wants to be, he's a brilliant motivational speaker, and knows exactly how to play people... but just when you start believing he might be genuinely Affably Evil, he'll reveal he's been playing you all along. And do something horrible.
- Killer Game Master: HamaEstra's claim to infamy is that he's not joking on the "killer" part.
- Urban Legend: Among Fuzzies as the "Insane GM."
FembunnyThat's not her actual name, but that's what she's referred to as in official material. Fembunny is a "game mercenary;" players and game masters hire her to do something during a game, such as fill in for a missing player (although this is the simplest case). She is introduced to the story when Target hires her to seduce Ben and steal all his magic items, and from there plays an important part in the Tournament War.
- Becoming the Mask: When she is introduced, she's hired to pretend to like Ben. Later, she develops an actual crush on him.
- Femme Fatale
- Gratuitous French
- No Name Given
- Punch Clock Villain
FrugAn old member of Mossfoot's group (before Violet joined), joined the "Legion of Doom" during F.I.G.H.T. Hits on every girl Fuzzy in sight; attempting to hit on Violet resulted in her going Miss Piggy on him.
DogAnother old member of Mossfoot's group; he was with them in the very first strip but was replaced with Target for the second, after which he was Mossfoot's doorstop for a while before joining the Legion of Doom. Mostly lives in his own little world with little or no idea as to what's going on around him.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Thanks to a computer chip placed in his head by HamaEstra, he briefly becomes highly intelligent, very verbose... and completely evil.
- Dogs Are Dumb
- Hulk Speak: His few spoken lines of dialogue tend to be along this line.
Frogerik BouchardA frog Fuzzy that taught both Mossfoot and HamaEstra about the Story. Speaks like Yoda virtually all the time, he does. Leader of the Philosopher Kings roleplaying group in F.I.G.H.T..
Emmanuowl NordrumAn owl Fuzzy, reported to be the smartest Fuzzy in the world, who leads a Fuzzy university in Oslo, and functions as "The Knowledge" of the Philosopher Kings.
- Cannot Tell a Joke: His intelligence doesn't extend to comedy.
- Mister Exposition: Can become this at times.
- The Smart Guy: Though there are no genius-level Fuzzies by human standards, Emmanuowl is as close as they come.
Pandrew BabbA red panda Fuzzy who used to be the Head of the Fuzz Intelligence Agency, but is now retired. He's "The Cunning" of the Philosopher Kings, functioning is their tactician and strategist.
- Genius Bruiser
- Retired Badass: He's famous for being the one who brought HamaEstra to justice the first time.
JerryA laid-back, multicolored bear Fuzzy who runs the local game store, "Jerry's Freakadelic Hobbies." He's the general conscience, or "The Heart" of the Philosopher Kings.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: You wouldn't think he'd be on level with the other Philosopher Kings, but he's more than able to keep up with them, despite his eccentric Stoner behavior — it's not as if he's Obfuscating Stupidity either, because his behavior never really changes even when things get serious.
- The Heart: It's even his title: his role in the group is to make sure that the others don't get so caught up in their Big Plans that they forget their morals.
- The Slacker: The only reason why he hasn't been fired from his job at Jerry's Freakadelic Hobbies is that he owns the place.
- The Stoner: Often seen smoking "something questionable," and otherwise has the act of a stereotypical stoner down pat — though he shouldn't be unterestimated.
The Fuzz and Others
- The Mentor: To Mossfoot.
- Not Quite Dead: HamaEstra neglected to make sure he died personally, which really comes back to bite him later.
KachoolooAn Elder God that Ben once summoned, but due to the circumstances of the ritual came out in a powerless plush form.
- Deathbringer the Adorable
- Eldritch Abomination
- Sealed Evil in a Teddy Bear: Thanks to the botched circumstances of his summoning, he is trapped in a powerless plush body. Last seen stealing Santa Claus's bag (confirmed to have dimension-crossing properties) and confronting HamaEstra in his new laboratory. However, we don't see how any of it plays out due to the series ending. Which is particularly painful, given the first event wasn't All Just a Dream.
- The UnintelligibleMossfoot: Good grief, this is as bad as roleplaying with Dog.
Team KittyA four-person roleplaying group of Sanrio character figurines led by Kitty that participates in F.I.G.H.T. in the first story.
- Catch Phrase: "Do I see a unicorn?"
- Brown Note: To the REFs. This is weaponized near the end of the War.
- Failed a Spot Check: Mossfoot is right; he leaves a rock there and none of them notice.
- Stupid Good: Unable to understand that violence sometimes is the solution, especially in a game like Hackmaster.
