Characters: Gregory Horror Show
In order of (more or less) their first appearance in the anime... (Will probably use a different sorting method in time.)

Several characters share the following tropes:


  • Anthropomorphic Personification: It is very strongly suggested he's the physical form of (lost) desires and dreams...his hotel/world is a manifestation of chaos.
  • Butt Monkey: Becomes this in The Bloody Karte
  • Crusty Caretaker
  • Dirty Old Man: He has a collection of porn magazines, makes a few suggestive comments to Second Guest, and in Bloody Karte, he gropes Cactus Girl.
  • Evil Laugh: Well, more of a chuckle, but still...
  • Faux Affably Evil: Oh sure, he'll say he wants to help the guests, offer them a place to stay, and calls the Guests "my friend/my dear," but he'll do it while breaking their psyches, swallowing human souls, and actively planning to feed them to his mother.
  • One-Winged Angel
  • Pet the Dog: He has his moments—mainly in the third and fourth seasons.
  • Villain Protagonist: The third season focuses on him instead of a guest.
  • You Dirty Rat

The Guest

The Guest is the main character of the first two seasons, with everything seen from their eyes. The First Guest is a working man with a wife and son, and the Second Guest is a working woman who struggles with the decision of Career Versus Man.

Neko Zombie

  • Cats Are Mean: Actually he's not a bad guy and genuinely wants to help guests escape if he can, but he's understandably bitter about what was done to him and so he can be snappish. Approaching him during certain times in the game, specifically when he's very hungry, will cause him to attack you.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!
  • Fear Of Thunder/Lightning: This is because it was during a thunder/lightning storm that someone stitched him up.
  • Hidden Depths
  • Kill It with Fire: How he destroys the hotel and tries to kill Gregory. It doesn't work.

Lost Doll

Hell's Chef


Mummy Dog

  • Children Are Innocent: One of the only residents who isn't consciously malicious.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Has an ax in his head, which he doesn't seem to acknowledge. He knows he has head-aches, but thinks he just inherited them from his dad.

Mummy Papa

  • Failed a Spot Check: Has an Arabian sword in his his son, he doesn't know it's there. Despite constant splitting headaches.

Judgment Boy

  • Catch Phrase: "Do you know / Who I am? / They call me / Judgment Boy!"
    • "JUDGMENT now!"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse
  • Insane Troll Logic: Perhaps not outright insane logic, but the scenarios he presents and the consequences of the choices made don't necessarily have to happen the way he tells them. Then again, in most cases he's reminding the guests of things that already happened.
  • Large Ham
  • Sadistic Choice: His purpose to to present these to the Guest. Hopefully they're just hypothetical.

Judgment Boy Gold


  • Don't Fear The Reaper: One of the only two characters (besides Neko Zombie in the PS2 game) who's genuinely kind to the Guest.
  • The Grim Reaper
  • The Other Darrin: In the English dub he was apparently played by one man, but had three different voices and personalities: one at the end of the first season who was very no-nonsense (understandable, given the situation) and outright told the guest that he might not be happy going home, one for the rest of the series who was calmer and gentler, and one in the game who was much more upbeat and had a very noticeable Brooklyn accent.

Stephen Haniwa Salaryman


Sleepy Sheep

Bonsai Kabuki

Cactus Girl

  • Action Girl
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: In The Second Guest, she 's furious at the female guest for rejecting her brother, and believes Gregory to be her she threatens to kill him if the guest doesn't date her brother.

  • Ear Worm: In-Universe. His song is so catchy, anyone that hears it starts dancing along... which eventually jars the dancer's soul right of their body.
