Characters / LazyTown

There are nine recurrent characters in LazyTown, all but three of them played by puppets. In addition to the main actors listed below, many different actors have played the characters (including the ones normally portrayed by puppets in the television series) in the various LazyTown live productions.

Humans

  • Adorkable: While Sportacus is conventionally attractive, well-muscled and very fitness-oriented, many fans consider him adorkable due to his constant optimism, boyish over-excitement, hopeless naiveté and awkward English. His baby-blue eyes and cheesy grin only help the matter.
  • Ambiguously Human: He is faster and more agile than any of the human characters and can pull off stunts that most people could only dream of. He also keeps his ears conspicuously hidden under his hat at all times.
  • Badass Mustache: A very long and straightened Salvador Dal type that normally would be worn by a villainous character.
  • Blithe Spirit: Alongside Stephanie, Sportacus inspires the previously lethargic inhabitants of Lazy Town to become more active and exercise more.
  • The Cast Showoff: Sportacus showcases Scheving's amazing stunts and talent as a gymnast, to the point where the character won't simply walk anywhere - instead he'll flip, somersault, walk on his hands, cartwheel, etc. just to get to wherever he needs to be. Granted, the show was created by Scheving himself, but still...
  • Catchphrase: "Someone's in trouble!"
  • Chest Insignia: Sportacus' "10".
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: His backpack can transform into gyrocopter and contains far more bats, rackets, balls and other sports equipment than should be able to fit into it.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: He has very blue eyes and a very optimistic and almost childlike enthusiasm for being active.
  • Invincible Hero: Played with - Sportacus is very capable but in keeping with the show's promotion of friendship and teamwork often needs the help of Stephanie and the other children to foil Robbie's latest scheme.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Sportacus' is sugar; eating any sugary food renders him immediately comatose, and fresh fruit (which contain quite a bit of sugar.) or vegetables (a classification that includes a handful of "sugary" foods, most prominently the sugar beet) are required to restore him. This has been justified by his weakness being specific to refined sugar rather than the natural sugars present in fruit and vegetables.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Although since the show is aimed at pre-teens he never actually engages in violence barring some very slapstick style fights played for laughs in the "Pirate" and "Knight" episodes.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Scheving is a very fit and handsome man and even in the Sportacus costume and comedy moustache still looks good. Dyri is also a pretty handsome chap in a different way and is also extremely fit, continuing this trope.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: No matter the task at hand, Sportacus will make sure he does it involving at least a few backflips, twirls, and heroic poses... Even walking down the street.
  • Only One Name: Like most superheroes, Sportacus goes by a mononym.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With Stephanie.
  • Self-Deprecation: Describes himself as a "slightly above-average hero" when he first meets Stephanie.
  • Super Strength: Sportacus rarely uses it but he's superhumanly strong - in the season four episode "Mystery of the Pyramid" he lifts the entire pyramid several feet off the ground to dislodge a boulder blocking the door using nothing more than a rope and grapnel.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He is crippled by eating chocolate or refined sugar, but can regain power by eating healthy foods.
