[[caption-width-right:200:"Let's go topside and see what kind of trouble we can get into."]]
->Voiced By: Aaron Lohr (The Precursor Legacy), Mike Erwin (Jak II - Combat Racing, Move Heroes), Creator/JoshKeaton (The Lost Frontier, All Stars Battle Royale)

The hero, chosen by the Precursors to protect the world. He has amazing eco-channeling powers. Due to two years of torturous Dark Eco experiments at the hands of Baron Praxis, he has a monstrous alter-ego called Dark Jak. However, he has been blessed by the Precursors with Light Eco, therefore balancing him out. He can be angry and violent at times, but he is a hero at heart.

* AcePilot: In ''The Lost Frontier''.
* AntiHero: He started out as a fairly standard hero, then became an UnscrupulousHero after two years of torture and Dark Eco experimentation at the beginning of ''II''. He then gradually became a PragmaticHero through the events of that game as his rage against the Baron subsided. By the end of ''3'', he has developed further into a KnightInSourArmor, as he's considerably warmed up to most of his allies.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable: In the first game.
** BadassBiker: Whenever he's on a Zoomer, at least.
** BadassDriver: In ''3'' and ''X''.
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Well, pissed off and vengeful, at least.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: When in his Dark form.
* CursedWithAwesome: After two years of torture and experimentation, Jak gains Dark Eco powers. The Baron and the Oracle warn that it will drive him insane and kill him horribly, people who watch him in action are terrified, and Count Veger concludes that because of it Jak is an abomination who deserves only death. Nevertheless, it makes him immensely powerful and exactly what he was intended to be: the only thing capable of taking down the Metal Head leader.
* CuteMute: During the first game only.
* TheCutie: In the first game.
** CorruptTheCutie: The two years spent in captivity resulted in Jak gaining a more badass attitude, appearance, and a dark form.
* DarkIsNotEvil: One of the reasons Jak is banished from Haven is because he is tainted with Dark Eco. While he's rather darker than he used to be, he still has his heart in the right place.
* DeadpanSnarker: From ''II'' onward. A bit angrier than most, but still a snarker.
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice King]]: In ''II'' he starts out aggressive and hostile and doesn't care about the big picture, saving people or making new friends as long as he gets his revenge. As he defrosts he turns into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and comes to deeply care about people other than himself.
* EleventhHourSuperPower: At the end of the first game Jak gets access to [[spoiler:Light Eco]] to defeat the precursor robot. ''II'' also allows you a chance to transform into Dark Jak during the final boss fight, regardless of your eco meter.
* ExpositoryHairStyleChange[=/=]GoodHairEvilHair: In ''II'', you know Jak is going to be all badass now when you see that he's grown a soul patch. Likewise, you can tell he's matured and mellowed out a bit (''a bit'') at the start of ''3'' when he trades it in for a goatee.
* {{Facepalm}}: A couple times, usually in response to Daxter.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Well, not to the Metal Heads, or Dark Makers, or Lurkers [[spoiler:at first]]. But Jak himself has stated more than once that he's "good with animals".
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Although Light Jak's eyes glow, the "doom" part comes from the fact that he can use the Morph Gun in that mode, not from the Light powers themselves.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Starts with eyes that take up half his face in ''TPL''; when he [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] in ''II'' they become noticeably smaller.
* GoodIsNotNice: Sure, he is ultimately good at heart, but he is not exactly jovial.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: He has glowing tentacle energy wings in Light form.
* HeroicLineage: He is a descendant of [[spoiler:the "great warrior" Damas and the founder of Haven City, Mar.]]
* HeroicMime: In the first game. Careful observations of the cutscenes in the first game shows that, several times, he ''tries'' to start talking before getting interrupted. At some point he just gives up and goes along with everything. (He ''does'' say "Ouch!" sometimes when he takes a hit, but the voice is notably deeper and goofier than his voice in ''II'' onward.) Lampshaded in the sequel by Daxter:
** "Say something! Just this once!"
** "Er, sorry. He's new to the whole 'conversation' thing."
** "Maybe this guy's a mute, like you used to be."
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Is constantly painted as a bad guy by those in power, culminating in Veger having him kicked out of Haven even though he saved the city.
* HornedHumanoid: As Dark Jak in ''II'', though strangely enough not in ''3''.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Is oftentimes rude, unmannered, and pissed off, but his conscience always gets the better of him.
* LightIsGood: Light Jak
* LimitBreak: Dark Jak
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: In ''II'' and the opening cutscene of ''3''; Jak is forced to cut it short so that he could survive in the desert.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Damas]] is Jak's father.
* MulticoloredHair: Jak's yellow hair has green roots. His facial hair and eyebrows are also green.
* MyNaymeIs: Take the very common name Jack and substract a c. (As stated in [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/04/rising-to-greatness-the-history-of-naughty-dog?page=10 this article]], "Jak" is South African, which "in addition to its Japanese-styled art (...) is another example of the series' multicultural slant.")
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: But hey, at least Jak cleans up his messes.
* NoodleIncident: Who knows what happened with that wumpbee nest on his ninth birthday?
* OneManArmy: Fully capable of taking on endless waves of Krimzon Guards and the Metal Heads by himself.
* [[spoiler:OnlyKnownByTheirNickname]]: [[spoiler:Jak was originally named Mar, after his ancestor.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Simply being armed with his morph gun makes him this (the thing has a ''mini nuke''), but his Dark form especially is capable of wreaking havoc and taking out dozens of enemies just by punching the ground.
* PhlebotinumRebel: After being involuntarily experimented on during the two years between the first and second games.
* QuickDraw: Pulls out his morph gun and puts it back in less than a second.
* RedOniBlueOni: Jak is the blue to Daxter's red, while he is the red to Keira's blue.
* [[spoiler:RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething[=/=]WarriorPrince]]
* TheSpeechless: In ''TPL'', he only occasionally says "ouch" or yells when he falls a long way.
* SilentSnarker: In the first game.
* SuddenlyVoiced: From the second game onward.
* SuperMode: His Light and Dark forms.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Dark Jak from the second game onwards. The third adds a Superpowered ''Good'' side to contrast.
* TookALevelInBadass: Following the switchover from ''TPL'' to ''II''.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In both cases [[JustifiedTrope it's actually justified.]] The first time, Jak spent two years getting tortured and getting injected with Dark Eco which takes a toll on his personality. The second time, he's exiled by the very city he previously saved. Both times he eventually mellows out.
* TriggerHappy: Chiding Krew for his love for weapons comes across as slightly hypocritical considering how much Jak loves his {{BFG}}.
* TroubledButCute: Badass jerkass with a heart of gold facing two years of wrongful imprisonment, experimentation, torture, exile, and [[spoiler:the death of his father]].
* TheVoiceless: In the first game.
* WingedHumanoid: As Light Jak.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Baron Praxis specifically warns Jak that although the Dark Eco has imbued him with great power, it will eventually drive him insane.
* WolverineClaws: Again, Dark Jak
* YinYangBomb: Jak gains both Dark Eco and Light Eco powers. Though not referring to him directly, he is even told that "the two types, light and dark, when combined form great energies."
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[FanWank Many a fan]] was under the impression that he was in his early twenties in the second game, until the official stats in ''Jak X'' revealed he was only 17 then. His bio on the official ''Jak X'' site states that "Jak from ''Jak 3'' is a seasoned hero, with etched lines on his face that show the many challenges he's overcome." About the 19-year-old Jak from ''Jak X'' it's said that "his once youthful face now shows the wear and tear of a hero."

[[caption-width-right:73:[--"Nobody hurts MY best friend and lives to brag about it."--] ]]
->Voiced By: Max Casella

The sidekick, at least at first. His ego is enormous, and he is always telling tall tales, mostly about his adventures with Jak, although he stretches the truth to make him seem like the hero. His friends seem to like Jak better than him (for the most part), but they just can't resist his unique charm... though he still irritates them to some degree. Most consider him to be a nuisance and a coward, but they're wrong (well, at least about the coward part).

* AllMenArePerverts
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: In universe. [[spoiler: What do ThePrecursors grant him? Pants.]]
* BadassBoast: Too bad he's a two-foot-tall mustelid, otherwise people might believe him.
* BadassDriver: The Class Two Race in ''Jak II'', and after buying him from the Secrets Shop in ''Jak X''.
* BalefulPolymorph: If you didn't play the first game, you probably don't know that Daxter was once human, and the whole point of the first game was changing him back... which obviously didn't happen, to the joy of fans everywhere.
* BeastAndBeauty: Obviously the "beast" part of his relationship with Tess, though since ''she's'' the protective one, it's a subversion.
* BerserkButton: Daxter will get really mad with anyone who hurts Jak, whether physically or mentally, and lives to brag about it (such as Veger). This is even lampshaded in-game.
* BlessedWithSuck / CursedWithAwesome: [[spoiler:At first. He eventually accepts his ottsel state, if not because he's essentially taken the form of a god.]]
* ButtMonkey: This is lampshaded in the second game, when Daxter is too GenreSavvy to climb up a totem pole and get an artifact. Of course, when Jak manages to grab it, the pole collapses, and one piece falls onto the poor ottsel.
-->'''Daxter:''' It's a curse, isn't it!?
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Daxter gets drunk off his ass in Jak II. Possibly justified since 1) he's small, and 2) he chugged a lot of booze in less than a minute. He seems to have learned his lesson, as we don't see him get drunk again. He also gets props for sobering up pretty quickly (and with no hangover, either).
** He gets an AlcoholHic while intoxicated as well.
* CaptainObvious: Noted in ''TPL'', often stating how to defeat enemies ''after'' the player has tried for the first time.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DeadpanSnarker: On occasion. Normally, he's all snark with a [[LargeHam side of ham.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He is half of the first game's title after all.
* GameOverMan: Has a line for every game over except for falls, lava, and drowning.
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: After changing into an ottsel, only his gloves and goggles are left of his original outfit.
** HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: At the end of ''Jak 3''.
* [[IAmNotWeasel I Am Not a Rat]] or a mouse, or a muskrat, or...
* KillerRabbit: Daxter can kick some serious ass when he needs to.
* LargeHam
* LovableSexManiac.
* MaleGaze: Daxter looks at Tess' boobs when they meet at the bar. At least he looked her in the face first, though.
* ManHug: An incredibly inebriated Daxter hugs Jak while slurring "I love you, man!" (Which earns him a disturbed look from Jak.)
* MarsNeedsWomen: Daxter does have an excuse, being that he used to be human.
* MascotWithAttitude
* MilesGloriosus: Usually.
* MixAndMatchCritter: He's an ottsel, an otter/weasel hybrid.
* MomentKiller: Little bastard has horrible timing.
* MoralityPet: He's Jak's.
* NonActionGuy: At first.
* OutOfFocus: In TLF. He's still there, but contributes surprisingly little to the plot and gets far less dialogue -- especially noticeable in the many cutscenes where he's reduced to standing around doing nothing, or providing the odd FunnyBackgroundEvent while Jak does all the talking. This is, of course, a complete reversal of their original roles.
* [[spoiler:PhysicalGod: Considering he's taken the form of a precursor.]]
* QuickDraw: Whenever Jak is on a Zoomer.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red oni to Jak's blue oni.
* RidingTheBomb: One of his more badass moments.
* SideKick
* SirSwearsALot: Starting with the DarkerAndEdgier (and T-rated) sequel.
* SlasherSmile: Oddly enough.
* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick
* [[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide]]: In ''TLF''. [[spoiler:He becomes about eight feet tall and has unbelievably {{Narm}}y bunny ears.]]
* TalkingAnimal: Duh.
* TookALevelInBadass: Daxter's change is subtle and usually ignored, but it's there.
* TriggerHappy: Whenever he gets a chance to use the damn thing.
* UndyingLoyalty: To his HeterosexualLifePartner Jak (albeit not without complaints).
* WeaselMascot

[[folder:Keira Hagai]]
[[caption-width-right:110:"I can win it all!"]]
->Voiced By: Anna Garduno (The Precursor Legacy - Jak II), Creator/TaraStrong (Jak 3 - The Lost Frontier)

A gifted mechanic, inventor, and racer, Keira is an invaluable help. She invents both the Zoomer and the Jet-Board. She is courageous, kind and independent, though she exhibits some jealousy whenever a rival for Jak's affections shows up. She's not a fighter in a "bash-your-skull-in" sense, but she's willing to get out on the track and blow things up.

* AdrenalineMakeover: She ''finally'' gets a new outfit in ''TLF'', where she accompanies Jak and Daxter on their newest adventure.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Keira develops a crush on Erol in the second game. Subverted as she [[spoiler:refuses to believe that he is actually evil, causing her to nearly break up with Jak]].
* AllThereInTheManual: Her surname, Hagai.
* BadassDriver: ''Jak X''.
* BareYourMidriff: Her standard outfit until ''The Lost Frontier''.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty.
* DaddysGirl: And she's not happy about it.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''3''.
* FauxActionGirl: In ''The Lost Frontier''. Ashelin she ain't.
* FirstGirlWins: She was Jak's love interest from the very beginning, though the role was given to Ashelin in ''Jak 3''. ''Jak X'' fixed this, possibly due to fan outrage.
* GreenEyes
* GunsAkimbo: After her aforementioned AdrenalineMakeover.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: When it comes to Erol.
* [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Eco Sage's Beautiful Daughter]]
* MsFanservice
** FanserviceCover: She appeared on an issue of ''Playstation Magazine" in a SexySantaDress. Kinda creepy when you consider the fact that she was fourteen at the time. Said cover is actually the trope image at this time.
* [[NerdsAreSexy Mechanics Are Sexy]]: Erol to Keira.
* OneOfTheBoys: Her oldest (and presumably closest) friends are Jak and Daxter, and she likes to tinker with machines.
* TheOtherDarrin: Her [[TaraStrong new voice actress]] caused quite a stir in the fanbase (and caused Naughty Dog to give her a bit part in ''Jak 3''). ''X'' redeemed Keira, despite retaining the new actress.
** HeyItsThatVoice: No wonder Keira is such a good mechanic. She's [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Rikku, an Al Bhed thief]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Keira serves as the blue to Jak's red.
* WrenchWench: For vehicles.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her green and [[TropeNamer blue]] hair.

[[folder:Samos Hagai]]
[[caption-width-right:144:"Be watchful of those in front of you, but beware of those behind."]]
->Voiced By: Warren Burton

The Sage of Green Eco and one of the wisest men on the planet (if he does say so himself), he acts as a father figure for Jak and Daxter. He applauds Jak's heroism while scolding Daxter's ridiculous antics, though he does realize that Daxter is a big help to Jak. He is very protective of Keira, his only child. He is absolutely enthralled with the mystery of the Precursors.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has green skin.
* BigGood: Although this role is reduced in the later games.
* CynicalMentor
* EccentricMentor: Although not as nice as the former trope namer (Dumbledore).
* FutureMeScaresMe: Averted, as he and his younger self just bicker all the time.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Twice in the second game as his younger self. His older self also serves as a guest in one of the missions.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* OverprotectiveDad: Though, it's perfectly reasonable: he wants his daughter to stay in the garage fixing cars, not out on the track getting shot at.
* ParentalSubstitute: He is a father figure for Jak and Daxter.
* RebelLeader: As the Shadow.
* TeamDad: His age makes him more like the Team Grandpa, though.

->Voiced By: Cutter Mitchell

A higher-up in the Underground, a resistance movement against Baron Praxis. He is normally calm, cool, and collected, but he also has a hint of rage in his personality that tends to come out when he's anxious. While he at first was distrustful of Jak and Daxter, they both eventually earn his respect.

* BadassNormal: He only takes part in one mission in the series.
* BadassDriver: ''Jak X''.
* BetaCouple: With Ashelin.
* DaChief: Of the New Krimzon Guard and its successor, the Freedom League.
* FacialMarkings
* EscortMission: Near the end of the third game, you're required to protect Torn (who joins as a GuestStarPartyMember) from a horde of enemies until he reaches the Metal Head nest.
* GoodIsNotNice
* GunsAkimbo
* GutturalGrowler
* {{Handguns}}
* HeelFaceTurn: He was a Krimzon Guard before the events of ''Jak II''.
* KnightInSourArmor: Subverted. He's certainly rough around the edges and is far from the WideEyedIdealist, but he's ultimately a part of the Underground simply because he believes in the cause.
* MissionControl: For Underground and Freedom League missions in ''Jak II'' and ''Jak 3'' respectively.
* PermaStubble
* SadisticChoice: Okay, Torn: Ashelin or the Underground? Pick one.

[[caption-width-right:200: "Keep talking and I'll raise your voice a couple of octaves."]]
->Voiced By: Creator/SusanEisenberg

The daughter of Baron Praxis is a fiery redhead who takes nothing from nobody. She has always relied solely on herself, and doesn't like to trust her life to anyone else, but once Jak and Daxter enter her life, she finds herself making more friends.

* ActionGirl
* BadassDriver: In ''Jak X''
* BadassNormal
* BadassPrincess
* BareYourMidriff
* BetaCouple: With Torn.
* BettyAndVeronica: The Veronica, for one game anyway.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Subverted. Ashelin temporarily sides with her father after he obtains the Precursor Stone, but when Vin reveals to her that it would destroy everything, she rejoins Jak.]]
* FacialMarkings
* MsFanservice
* FieryRedhead
* FiringOneHanded
* GreenEyes
* GuestStarPartyMember: Ashelin fights alongside you in several battles, making her among the most active guests.
* {{Handguns}}
* {{Ojou}}
* PromotedToLoveInterest: In the third game, so some degree; this was left behind in ''Jak X'', though.
** She did flirt with Jak in the second game a few times, so the promotion didn't come [[StrangledByTheRedString out of nowhere]].
* RebelliousPrincess: She takes this to extremes by being a double agent for the Underground, who is working to topple the Baron's rule.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: The only female Krimzon Guard we see, she wears a "uniform" like this. ''Jak X'' adds some more cloth to her outfit.

->Voiced By: Britton A. Hill

This member of the Underground specializes in gun design and runs the shooting range. She's courageous, feisty, and willing to help on the front lines however she can. She's a true-blue blonde, absolutely in love with cute fuzzy things, especially Daxter, and seems to believe all of his outlandish tales.

* [[spoiler:BarefootCartoonAnimal: As an Ottsel.]]
* BareYourMidriff
* BeastAndBeauty: The "beauty" component of her relationship with Daxter. Subverted because ''she'' is the protective one.
* DirtyHarriet: Slight aversion: Tess works as a barmaid (and ''nothing else'') at Krew's bar in order to pass his secrets to Torn and the Underground.
* DumbBlonde: Usually.
* MsFanservice
* GeniusDitz
* SmallGirlBigGun
* TookALevelInBadass: She goes from {{Fanservice}} to an expert weapon designer.
* WhoWearsShortShorts
* WrenchWench: For weapons.

->Voiced By: Creator/PhilLaMarr

This Wastelander hunts Metal Heads for fun and uses their trophies for his armor. Even though he's a hardcore fighter, he has a sensitive side, but it's well hidden from outsiders. He's more than ready to rumble, especially if his friends need help. When Jak impresses him with his sharp-shooting, it signals the beginning of what becomes a good friendship. He even comes to respect Daxter, complimenting his story-telling prowess.

* [[spoiler:AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: At the end of ''3'', he becomes the new king of Spargus City.]]
* BadassDriver: In ''Jak X''.
* BadassNormal
* EscortMission: Always takes place in these.
* GreenEyes
* GuestStarPartyMember: Sig is more likely to serve as a guest than any other character.
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Reddas]], anyone?
* IWantThemAlive: [[spoiler:About Krew, who Jak has already killed. Sorry, big guy.]]
* MommasBoy: Possibly. "She'd give me a warm glass of yakow milk... and my little Poopsie Bear..."
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead: Sig seems to be killed by a Metalpede at the end of Jak II. He reappears triumphantly at the party in the outro, in perfect health. Which, in hindsight, makes Vin's serious offscreen death even ''more'' depressing than when the player was made to think both he and Sig were dead.]]

[[caption-width-right:239:"Birds do not school. They flock. [[PrecisionFStrike So]] [[FlippingTheBird flock]] [[JustForPun off]]!"]]
->Voiced By: Chris Cox

This monkaw is wise, but at times can act like an idiot. A rather odious individual, he often twists Onin's words to his own liking, summarizing them in an impolite manner. He's cowardly, only looks out for himself, and is constantly changing alliances.

* BadassDriver: In ''Jak X''. Only after buying him from the Secrets Shop, though.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Duh. Even Jak started to crack up when he first heard that. To Daxter's credit, he hasn't made any dick jokes... yet.
* PollyWantsAMicrophone: He actually gets one in ''Jak X''.

Onin is a blind soothsayer who speaks in hand gestures, interpreted by Pecker, who sits in her bowl-like hat. She is very wise, but sometimes "speaks" in riddles.

* BlindSeer
* ProphetEyes

!The Precursor Legacy

[[folder:Gol and Maia]]
[[caption-width-right:320:"Enjoy your front-row seats to the re-creation of the world!"]]
->Voiced By: Dee Snider and Jennifer Hagood

'''''THE''''' advertisement as to why you should keep ''as far as is humanely and sanely possible'' from Dark Eco. Gol Acheron, the Sage of Dark Eco, and his sister, Maia, are the villains of the first installment.

* AbsoluteCleavage: Have you ''seen'' Maia's outfit?
* BigBadDuumvirate: They seem to get along quite well.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Quite probably because [[spoiler:they're dead. Even if they did survive being submerged in Dark Eco, they were left at a point where they would have to contend with hordes of Metal heads while the main plot moved centuries into the future.]] Still, they're never even mentioned again.
* DisneyDeath: Both get thrown into the Dark Eco silo and are sealed forever.
* [[EvilBrit Evil Brits]]: In accent, if nothing else.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Although not revealed in-game, according to the old Naughty Dog website, they are twins.
* HumongousMecha: Their master plan involves getting one of these made from Precursor technology. The FinalBoss is the one they finally get their hands on.
* InformedAttribute: How powerful they are in person. They apparently beat the other four sages without much difficulty, but we never get to see how much trouble they are on their own.
* InTheirOwnImage: Their master plan is to beak open the Dark Eco silos and use the massive amounts of the stuff within to remake the world as they see fit.
* PowerFloats: They seem to be the only sages capable of sustained levitation; they're never seen touching the ground once.
* RedRightHand: Gol's cybernetic fist, the large black streaks on Maia's face, the blue skin and white hair.
* [[StarterVillain Starter Villains]]: Of the series.
* ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: Gol and Maia were performing Dark Eco experiments, and exposure to the stuff eventually [[FaceHeelTurn twisted them mad]]. They had apparently [[EvilFormerFriend lived in harmony with the other sages until this point]].
* VaderBreath: All that Dark Eco experimentation doesn't look like it was any good for Gol's lungs.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Gol, for reasons unknown.

!Jak II

[[folder:Baron Praxis]]
->Voiced By: Creator/ClancyBrown

The ruthless, tyrannical ruler of Haven City. Ashelin's father.

* AristocratsAreEvil

* TacticalSuicideBoss
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: He wanted to use a bomb that can ''destroy the universe'' to blow up the Metal Head Nest... yeah.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Emphasis on the ''EXTREME'' part. He's willing to do anything he sees as necessary to stop the Metal Heads from destroying the city.

->Voiced By: David Herman

The commander of the Krimzon Guard and Praxis's right-hand man, this ruthless KG was the best racer in the city until Jak came along.

* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: Returns as a cyborg in the third game.]]
* [[spoiler:BigBad: in the third game.]]
* [[spoiler:CyberneticsEatYourSoul: In the third game, the only parts of him that ''aren't'' machinery are his right hand and the left side of his face.]]

* DragonAscendant
* DrivenByEnvy / IfICantHaveYou : His envy towards Jak for [[spoiler:winning back Keira's respect after a nasty near-break up]] causes Erol to attempt to run over Jak with his bike, which [[spoiler:results in him crashing into barrels of Dark Eco and becoming a cyborg]].
* GreenEyedMonster
* EvilCounterpart: To Torn. To a slightly lesser extent, Jak too.
* EvilRedhead
* {{Jerkass}}: Particularly the charming, handsome, arrogant dickish type.
** TookALevelInJerkAss: He's a massive tool in the second game, [[spoiler:but he's much worse in the third.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: He crashes into a stash of Eco and explodes when trying to run Jak over with a zoomer. Subverted because he is revealed to be alive in the third game.]]
* [[spoiler:OmnicidalManiac: In ''Jak 3''.]]
* TheRival: Is this to Jak in racing and winning Keira's affections.
* SmugSnake
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: [[spoiler:In ''Jak II'' it's spelled Erol, in ''3'' Errol.]]
* VillainousBreakdown

->Voiced By: Sherman Howard

This wise old man is a member of the Underground and guardian of The Kid. He is very knowledgeable in regards to Metal Heads.

* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing: Or more specifically, Metal Head in human's clothing.]]
* [[spoiler:BigBad: As the Medal Head leader, he serves this role in ''Jak II''.]]
* GrayEyes: [[spoiler:Subverted. He seems to be perfectly innocent until he's revealed to be the Metal Head Leader.]]
* [[spoiler:OmnicidalManiac]]
* [[spoiler:TheReveal: He's really the Metal Head Leader in disguise.]]
* [[spoiler:TreacherousAdvisor]]
* [[spoiler:TheVillainMakesThePlot: Setting in motion his prophecised defeat was the reason Jak was sent back in time for the first game, and the reason he was sent into the future at the start of the second.]]
* [[spoiler:VoiceOfTheLegion: Lighter than most examples, but it's there.]]
* WalkingSpoiler

[[folder:The Kid]]
The heir to the throne of Haven City, this adorable child doesn't go anywhere without his pet crocadog, who likes no one but the boy.

* ChekhovsGunman: The Kid is the heir to the throne of Haven City, but that's not why he's important. It's because [[spoiler:he's Jak]].
* EscortMission: At one point, you are required to take the boy to Vin. Due to his young age, he does not become a GuestStarPartyMember.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: The snarling, unpleasant crocodog he keeps around seems to adore him [[spoiler:and Jak]].
* [[spoiler:FutureBadass]]
* [[spoiler:FutureMeScaresMe: Averted: he takes a shine to Jak.]]

->Voiced By: Willliam Minkin

This Jabba the Hut look-alike runs the Hip Hog Heaven Saloon. He was a gang lord in Kras City before he came to Haven. He is obsessed with weapons.

* TheChessmaster: In ''Jak II'', he's manipulating the Underground, the Baron, ''and'' the Metal Heads for his own profit. [[spoiler:He's giving the Underground information about the Baron's dealings with the Metal Heads in return for favours, among which he has Jak retrieve the ruby key from the statue of Mar. The key he uses to sell the entire city out to the Metal Heads by opening a tunnel to the city through the underport. However, at the same time, he's helping the Baron build the Piercer Bomb and planning to use it along with the Precursor Stone to destroy the Metal Head nest, suggesting that he didn't really plan on letting the Metal Heads take the city. Even if they had destroyed the city, Krew's crime empire extended itself to Kras City, making it probably easy for him to recover from Haven's potential destruction]]. He also shows an impressive posthumous talent for scheming in ''Jak X'', one that [[spoiler:destroys Mizo's empire and places Krew's daughter Rayn on top of the Kras City underworld]].
* CompanionCube: Krew likes weapons a ''little'' (okay, a '''''lot''''') too much.
* EvilBrit
* FatBastard
* ImAHumanitarian: The credits for ''Jak II'', where the characters speak like they're actors. Krew proudly says he "slimmed down" to 520 for his role, and it was thanks to his personal trainer. Krew then admits that he ate him, as if it were a slip in his otherwise strict diet.
* MeaningfulName: At least for the Japanese dub. The onomatopoeia "kuru-kuru" means for something to go round and round. And considering [[FatBastard what Krew is]]...
* ObiWanMoment: When he's left behind with the set-off Piercer bomb, he just mutters a calm: "Oh, well."
* TheQuisling: He sells out Haven City to the Metal Heads, though since he was also helping Praxis build the piercer bomb to destroy the Metal Head nest, he may just have been trying to profit off the Metal Heads before doublecrossing them.
* PosthumousCharacter: In ''Jak X''.
* TheRat

->Voiced By: Robert Patrick Benedict

This computer whiz is paranoid of everything and suffers from Hora-quanophobia (fear of Metal Heads). He works for the Baron as the foreman of his eco-mining operations, but he relays information to the Underground.

* [[spoiler:BrainUploading: Vin "survives" a Metal Head attack by doing this.]]
* [[CoolGuns Cool Gun]]: Has his own little high-tech [[FrickinLaserBeams laser pistol]]. He's... not such a good shot.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Jak 3'', [[spoiler:even with his prior death.]]
* DistressedDude: And it's up to Jak to save him.
* GrenadeHotPotato: Thrown to him by Daxter. He promptly throws it back. Who throws it back again, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment and so on]].
* [[HollywoodHacking Hollywood Hacker]]
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: When he first meets Jak and Daxter, he shoots wildly at them, with predictable results.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
** [[spoiler:DisneyDeath]]
* TheLoad: At least, the Baron and everyone else think so. They left him to die at the Mining Facility.
* NonActionGuy
* ProperlyParanoid: [[spoiler:It proves to be ''not'' such a bad thing to be terrified to death of.]]
* [[spoiler:ShooOutTheClowns: Things start taking a turn for the dark around the time he's killed.]]
* [[spoiler:SoundOnlyDeath: Lives long enough to scream over the radio to Jak who the real BigBad is, before the Metal Heads cut him off permanently. Vin's FamousLastWords even provides the trope's quote.]]

->Voiced By: Alan Blumenfeld

Brutter owns a trinket stand in the bazaar, and tries to free his Lurker brethren from captivity. He also owns a fish cannery, and Daxter met him when on the job before he got around to releasing Jak from prison.

* BrotherChuck: See above.
* TheDitz: Though he seems fairly intelligent by Lurker standards.
* TheDreaded: Meta-example -- savvy players dread having to do ''anything'' for Brutter, because he's usually connected to missions that make the difficulty of ''Battletoads'' look forgiving!
* HulkSpeak
* ThirdPersonPerson
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: All those CannonFodder Lurkers you beat up in the first game don't seem like such bad guys now, eh?
** ...you might think twice after the "[[ThatOneLevel Get Seal Piece in Slums]]" mission, though.

->Voiced By: Cutter Mitchell

Not much is known about this pyromaniac, except that he's a smoker and he loves explosives. He is quite the sarcastic guy.

* CigarChomper
* DeadpanSnarker
* EscortMission / GuestStarPartyMember: Twice
* FlatCharacter
* GreenEyes
* TheNicknamer: Calls Jak "Blondie," "Goldilocks," "Sugar," and "Pretty Boy" (among others.)

!Jak 3

[[folder:Count Veger]]
->Voiced By: Creator/PhilLaMarr

Count Veger is obsessed with "destroying all shadows" and likes everything neat and tidy, but just can't accept that life is messy. He strongly distrusts Jak and his Dark Eco abilities. In some ways, Veger means well, but he's doing things the wrong way and for all the wrong reasons.

* AristocratsAreEvil
** [[MeaningfulTitles Meaningful Title]]
* BadassLongcoat: You have to admit, his blue coat looks quite cool.
* BaldOfEvil
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He wishes to become a Precursor. [[spoiler:There were [[WeaselMascot aspects of this]] he was not expecting. Along with Kleiver taking him in as a sidekick.]]
* BigBadWannabe: He positions himself to be the biggest thorn in Jak's side, but is mostly upstaged by [[spoiler:Errol and the Dark Makers]]. Still, he [[spoiler:did set the entire plot of the trilogy in motion by kidnapping young Jak from Damas -- not half bad.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Count Veger was mostly responsible for kicking Jak out of Haven City, but there's nothing really personal between them... [[spoiler:except for the fact that Veger knew all along that Jak was Damas's son, and in fact separated the two of them in the first place]].
* ClickHello: He pulls one of these in ''Jak 3'', though we don't hear a ''click'': he announces his presence by shouting at Jak.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: [[spoiler:He [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor is transformed into a tiny, furry precursor]].]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Early concept art for Count Veger shows him sporting a mustache that greatly resembles that of a [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler certain dictator]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: A scene in ''Daxter'' has him arguing against the Dark Warrior Program, saying straight-up that it is a bad idea.
* FiringOneHanded: The former trope image was taken from a scene near the end where he threatens Jak.
* Handguns
* ItsAllAboutMe
* [[spoiler:KarmicTransformation: He hates Daxter and eventually gets turned into an ottsel like him.]]
* KickTheDog: His gloating to Jak immediately after [[spoiler:Damas' death]].
* KnightTemplar: He practically ''is'' this trope: a strong supporter of [[LightIsNotGood Light Eco research]] and revealed to be [[spoiler:one of the main villains of the overall series]].
* LargeHam:
--> '''Veger''': I will rid the planet of this scourge soon enough. Pure light will rule the universe, and I will be the bright light that shines to every corner of the world and destroys all shadows!
--> '''Daxter''': Uh, excuse me, Count Vulgar...
--> '''Veger''': '''''[[MaliciousMisnaming It's Veger!]]'''''
* LastNameBasis: Maybe.
* LightIsNotGood
* MaliciousMisnaming: Daxter's favorite method of annoying him.
* ObstructiveZealot: Oh, yeah.
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: [[spoiler:The little kid he abducted from Damas for his own greedy purposes was saved from his clutches, thrust into a StableTimeLoop in which he grew up, came back to his own time, and became a grown up BadAss extraordinare, and had a hand in seeing all of Veger's plotting explode in his face. Now that's bad karma.]]
* SmugSnake
* TheChessmaster: A little, although not that great at it. [[spoiler:He was the one who had Jak taken from his father and later lost him to the Underground.]]
* TheUnfought
* TwitchyEye: He gets one after TheReveal.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He had enough influence to get Jak removed from the city and practically blamed for everything. Unfortunately for him, the publicity doesn't last forever.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He really wants to destroy the Metal Heads, and the Dark Makers, but does a lot of terrible things to meet that end.

->Voiced By: Bumper Robinson

[[caption-width-right:200:"In the unforgiving Wasteland we value strength and survival above all."]]

The king of Spargus City, the home of refugees who were cast out of Haven City and left to die.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* BaldOfAwesome: You know you're a badass when you lose your hair and wear bones to decorate your scalp instead.
* BigDamnHeroes
* [[spoiler:DiedInYourArmsTonight: He dies in the arms of his son.]]
* AFatherToHisMen: Damas truly does care for Spargus City's refuges; the best example [[spoiler:pre-climax]] is when four men are missing during a powerful sandstorm, and he sends Jak to save them [[spoiler:(One gets killed by a Dark Maker boss before Jak could reach him, however)]].
* GutturalGrowler
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather: Damas is Jak's father, but he doesn't live to find out.]]

* WastelandElder

[[caption-width-right:200:"This Wastelander is gonna waste you!"]]
->Voiced By: Creator/BrianBloom

Damas's second-in-command and the self-described "guy who runs Spargus". He immediately develops an unpleasant rivalry with Jak upon meeting him.

* ExtremeOmnivore: He'll eat just about anything, but what he's really interested in is eating Daxter... [[spoiler:Or maybe Veger.]]
* FatBastard: Not as much as Krew, but still.
* {{Jerkass}}
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Goes from being an unpleasant ally in ''Jak 3'' to working for Mizo in ''Jak X''.
* MyNaymeIs
* RedOniBlueOni: Kleiver is the red to Damas's blue.

->Voiced by: Creator/TaraStrong

Head of Spargus' Precursor Monks. Seem is quite skeptical of Jak's status as a hero and distrusts him for his Dark Eco abilities, but comes to respect him.

* AmbiguousGender: Even NaughtyDog can't seem to be able to [[FlipFlopOfGod make up their minds]].
** Pointing towards male: Daxter refers to Seem as 'monk boy' and Seem never corrects him; the trophy for rescuing Seem at the temple is titled "dude in distress"; in the Spanish, Italian, German and French versions of the game Seem is stated to be male and is voiced by a male actor; a fan emailed Naughty Dog and the answer received was "Seem is male"; the official ''Jak 3'' website gives Seem's gender as male.
** Pointing toward female: In the English version Seem is voiced by Tara Strong; the URL showing the final concept art on Bob Rafei's website contains "Seem girl merged"; another fan emailed Naughty Dog as well and the answer they received was "Seem is a girl"; the creator commentary and official guide refer to Seem as female.
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Person]]: Seem despises Jak at first because of his dark powers and doesn't believe he is the true hero, but over time comes to see he is and begins to respect him.
* FacialMarkings: The red and yellow face paint resembles the head of a Precursor oracle.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: A subversion.
* TheStoic: Seem is quite no-nonsense and doesn't show much emotion.
* ThisIsReality: The second time you approach Seem, Jak is being flippant towards Seem's warning, causing Seem to snap, "This isn't a game", to which Jak and Daxter [[AsideGlance look at the player]].

!Jak X

Rayn is Krew's daughter in Kras City and the heir to his criminal empire. She befriends Jak after they are poisoned by the toast in the late Krew's honour.

[[caption-width-right:200:"How does he keep that shine in his hair? I must know!"]]

G. T. Blitz is the less than pleasant announcer for the Kras City races. His father was one of the best racers on the planet before being murdered by the Kras City crime lord Mizo.

* AnnouncerChatter

* [[spoiler:BlondGuysAreEvil]]: This would apply if Blitz's hair wasn't a wig.
* [[spoiler:EngineeredPublicConfession]]

* RealMenWearPink
* [[spoiler:TheReveal: G. T. Blitz and Mizo are actually the same person; the latter does not have a wig.]]
* [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan]]
* [[spoiler:TattooedCrook]]
* WalkingSpoiler
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler:The commentary for ''Jak X'' states that Mizo was originally intended to be a split personality separate from Blitz, but this idea was dropped at the last minute because they thought it would be too complex to bring this up and explain in one cutscene. It may still be true in the final game, since Mizo refers to himself in plural during his MotiveRant.]]

->Voiced By: Creator/RobinAtkinDownes

The leader of the [[SkyPirate Sky Pirates]], and the first antagonist Jak meets upon reaching the [[TheWallAroundTheWorld Brink]].

* [[spoiler:TheDragon: Since it's ''not'' Ruskin, Klout is probably the closest thing Skyheed has.]]

[[folder:Duke Skyheed]]
->Voiced By: Creator/PhilLaMarr

The monarch of Aeropa, he offers Jak and the gang protection from the pirates. His main goal is finding the Eco Core, the source of all the world's eco, to try and SaveTheWorld. [[spoiler:The truth is he's only trying to find the Eco Core so he can control all of the world's eco, and rule over the entire planet... Or destroy it if things don't go his way. He's also responsible for Aeropa's Dark Warrior Program.]]

[[folder:Chancellor Ruskin]]
->Voiced By: Chris Cox

Skyheed's right-hand man. He immediately takes a dislike to Jak and Daxter, and makes them prove themselves worthy of protecting the Eco Seeker, the only device capable of finding the Eco Core. Even then, he still doesn't trust them. [[spoiler:As it turns out, he was well aware of Skyheed's plan all along, and was secretly helping Jak the entire time.]]

* BadassBoast: [[spoiler:He threatens to kill Skyheed even ''while'' he's in his Dark Eco form. [[KilledOffForReal Too bad he doesn't get a chance]].]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Tym was responsible for the development of the Eco-Chair that was used to pump Jak full of Dark Eco during his two years in prison. The fact that Jak DIDN'T rip him to tiny pieces like he tried to do with Errol and Praxis was VERY surprising.]]
