Major characters in ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'':


[[folder:The Band]]

Three stalwart MonsterAdventurers who decided that this life was better than sticking around in the dungeon.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Parodied. It's implied all of the main trio suffer from this.
* BadassCrew:
--> '''Mimic:''' Presti, babe... Tha' was, like, five whole minutes ago. Th' two a' them have already looted th' place and moved on.
* MonsterAdventurers

The charismatic Mimic is, despite the title, the main character.

* AmbiguousGender: Used as a one-off joke where a siren is waiting to seduce some random male humanoid.
* BizarreAlienSenses: [[ Can't see, and his normal mode of sensing is more limited than sight,]] [[ including problems seeing color.]] [[ It does, however, work in the dark.]]
* ChestMonster: Unusually, he seems to be subpar in the combat department, though he does have the characteristic toughness (see IronButtMonkey below).
* ADogNamedDog: A mimic named Mimic. [[spoiler:Lampshaded when he grudgingly [[ admits]] that his [[EmbarrassingFirstName real]] name is [[PunnyName Boxford]].]]
* FacePalm: No, Mimic has neither face nor palm. [[ Yes, he can still facepalm nonetheless.]]
* GlamourFailure: Mimic's lips are visible regardless of his form.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Parodied: both angels advise him to do the exact same thing -- ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer -- just phrasing it differently. He even lampshades it, saying "Aren't you two supposed to disagree?"
* IronButtMonkey: He gets hurt pretty often, but usually only seems mildly inconvenienced by it, even when fully pierced by a massive spike. [[EpilepticTrees Maybe he can shapeshift new organs to replace the damaged ones?]]
* LanternJawOfJustice: Of all people, Mimic has one.
* {{Leader}}: Not only does he organize the group, Robespierre admits he has a knack for knowing how to encourage people to the best performance.
* MediumAwareness: He observes there are no rules on tetanus.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Mimic, it turns out, is a nickname.
* OnlySaneMan: Well, Only Sane Mimic.
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: Mimic can technically takes the shape of any "inanimate" object, but he's most commonly seen as a treasure chest with a large, toothy mouth and red lips.
* SpeechBubblesInterruption: Mimic has a tendency to do this. Or to have it done to him, alternatively.
* StickySituation: Mimic has the standard adhesive ability of a ''D&D'' mimic, but employs it very rarely since, as he puts out...
-->'''Mimic:''' If a ragin' axe-wieldin' berzerker's comin' at ya... gluin' y'self TO him isn't your best strategy!
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Well, yeah. He's a mimic, it's his thing.

An absurdly cute rust monster whose favorite line is "Eat [metallic object]?"

* BigEater: Of anything metallic.
* ExtremeOmnivore: As long as it's metal, Rusty will want to eat it. At least he (usually) asks first...
* FlawExploitation: You want him to do something? Offer him metal if he will.
* LethalJokeCharacter: Rusty's no good for fighting, but the ability to rust (and then dissolve) any metallic object is about as useful as you'd imagine in a world where a majority of the weapons and armor are made of some sort of metal.
* LoveAtFirstSight: [[ Spots a she-rust-monster]], [[ leaving flowers]].
* LoveHurts: [[ mooning about after]] LoveAtFirstSight.
* MadLibsCatchphrase: "Eat X?" where X is some metallic item. It's also about the only thing that Rusty says.
* {{Mascot}}: The comic title sports his name, he features on the site's logo and the main merchandise is of him, but he's still not the main character.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Roxy knows that Madeline must be important to Rusty, since he refrained from eating her armor. Also when he actually says something else than "Eat X".
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: "Eat X" is Rusty's solution to about every problem.

!!Cube, a. k. a. Gelly C
The silent yet deadly Gelatinous Cube

* BigDamnHeroes: Well, Hero, singular. You can expect Cube to pull this off at least once per issue.
* BigEater: If Rusty doesn't get to it first, you can expect Cube to eat it.
* TheBigGuy: He's by far the strongest fighter on TheTeam.
* BlobMonster: [[CaptainObvious Well, yeah]].
* DeathGlare[=/=]KubrickStare: [[ As shown here, one does not actually require eyes or any other facial feature to pull this off]].
* ADogNamedDog
* HappilyMarried
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Cube's WeaponOfChoice during Level 6, when he's dressed up as a {{Samurai}}.
* LeParkour: Mimic claims Cube knows this. It's not like there's any other explanation how he ended up suspended between two buildings, several stories in the air.
* SingleStrokeBattle: While dressed up as a samurai during Level 6.
* TheSpeechless: Justified because, well, it's [[ShapedLikeItself a gelatinous cube]].
* StrippedToTheBone: Cube's victims.
* WeaksauceWeakness: He can't dissolve synthetic fabric.

[[folder:The Girls]]
Every level thus far has featured an female character who connects and adventures with them. After the first three, the girls also started reappearing.

* GuestStarPartyMember: all of them. For the first three levels, in the most straightforward way but it's gotten more complex.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Most of them have their own adventures and jobs when they're not helping out our heroes.
* InSeriesNickname: Everyone except the Princess ([[NoNameGiven The readers still haven't learned her name]]) and Stabs ("Stabs" ''is'' [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep her nickname]]) has one. Madeline has "Maddy", Roxanne has "Roxy", Prestige has "Presti" and "P", and Yuan-Tiffany has "Y.T.".
* RecurringElement: At least one of them appears in every level. Starting from Level 4, expect more than one to put in an appearance.

!!The Princess
A human monk (with a few levels in DungeonmastersGirlfriend), the princess is anything but a damsel in distress.

* AntiHero: Well, Anti-Heroine: She smokes, wears revealing clothes, is {{greed}}y, [[BoyMeetsGhoul loves a wight]], and has no qualm at all beating up a bunch of mind-controlled innocent bystanders.
* BareFistedMonk
* BareYourMidriff
* DamselInDistress: Subverted, naturally. The Princess is actually very good at combat.
* DungeonmastersGirlfriend: She claims to have taken a level (or more) in this "VERY obscure and VERY powerful prestige class" when she was imprisoned.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Everyone calls her Princess, as her real name has not yet been given.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Though whether it's because of ArtisticLicense or that the makeup she wears just obscures her eyes isn't known.
* BoyMeetsGhoul: Girl Meets Wight in this case.
* TheLadette
* MulticoloredHair: Purple with a blonde lock.
* NiceHat: Her hennin (which she wears all the time) is her only concession to the classic princess look.
* PaperThinDisguise: [[spoiler:She really should take off her hat first.]]
* PrincessesRule: We have yet to see any sign of a King or Queen.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: The Princess goes on one (and later almost refers to it as such by name) after [[spoiler:her wight boyfriend is turned by a cleric or necromancer]].
* SmokingIsCool
* StealthPun: The Princess is a monk, who dresses like a punk. A punk monk.
* UngratefulBastard: Prestige Perkins stops the Tentacallis Mafia from destroying the royal palace with a MagiTech missile. The Princess's response is to punish her for making noise while she's suffering a hangover.

!!Dame Madeline Goodlaw (a.k.a. Madeline the Paladin)
A human paladin, who makes up for her lack of intelligence with superior fighting ability... most of the time.

* ActionGirlfriend: A GirlyBruiser with a crush on an ActualPacifist.
* ActionHero: A straightforward paladin badass in a cast full of {{Guile Hero}}es.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Courtesy of a Raise Dead spell arranged and paid for by Mimic, after she died saving him from Grinner's dynamite.]]
* BadassAdorable: Arguably the most badass character in the cast, definitely the most adorable.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: When she throws down, she throws down [[ hard]]. [[spoiler:A lava bath doesn't even slow her down when she confronts the Grinner.]]
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]: If there's a straightforward BigBad or other physical threat, expect her to be right in the thick of it.
* BlindfoldedVision: Madeline seems to do something similar, at least -- whenever she's actively fighting something, she closes her eyes. This practice has lead to quite a bit of WildMassGuessing as to why she does so in the reader comments, with theories ranging from divine guidance to disliking the sight of violence.
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler:Inverted, as per ''[=DnD=]'' tradition. When she came BackFromTheDead, she not only lost some memories and assorted EXP, but also seems to have suffered some trauma which hampers her further. A side-plot of Level 8 is Derek, a doctor, trying to help Madeline find back to her old self.]]
* TheCape: She's the most classically heroic protagonist. Bonus points for actually wearing a cape.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: With Madeline's first two weapons, the question of how she could fight so well with garden implements could have just been her own badass fighting skills, because the holy avenger and vorpal powers did not clearly manifest. However, her pitchfork clearly has magical powers, and so it's clear that her belief is endowing them with them.
* CrushBlush:
** Talking of Derek the Cleric.
** [[ Still more in his presence.]]
* TheCutie: Despite being one of the most badass characters in the comic.
* DetectEvil: Through smell.
* TheDitz: Maddie is... not particularly smart, at least in the intellectual sense. [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Doesn't stop her]] from being a stone-cold badass, though.
* EvilKnockoff: The hipster vampires ''try'' this on her. It doesn't exactly go as planned.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Her armor has a big ol' [[ShouldersOfDoom Shoulder of Doom]] on the right and lacks an equivalent plate altogether on the left. [[spoiler:Until Grinner messed it up and it was repaired with two regular shoulderplates instead]].
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: The visual effect for healing hands.
* HealingHands: Through "the power of the gods".
* HeavenlyBlue: Her Smite.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:She dies protecting Mimic from Grinner's dynamite]].
* HolyHandGrenade: The smite, it appears, is for zombies.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Madeline's hoe. Later the same gnome who sold her that offers for sale a [[ProngsOfPoseidon +1 Trident]] (a.k.a. a rake). And the next time Madeline appears, she wields a spade. But then, she can kick butt with both of them. And more recently, she turns a pitchfork into a Trident of Warning.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: The vampire uses the Python to pull out her Evil Side, resulting in... [[spoiler:a two-inch tall Anti-Madeline.]]
-->'''Madeline:''' I'm sorry! Guess I don't have a lot of Evil in me.
* IntrinsicVow: The weakness of a dominate over her is that she can't do anything against her nature.
* TheKlutz: Turns into this after [[spoiler:her resurrection]]. She can get [[ stuck in a door trying to cross with a stretcher]], and [[ drop a wounded one down a flight of stairs]] from said stretcher. [[spoiler:The radical change, making it clear she's suffered damage, makes it less endearing and more troublesome than usual]].
* LadyLegionnaireWear: Her default outfit.
* LawfulGood: [[{{Invoked}}]] One of the best examples on the whole internet.
* MeaningfulName: A paladin named Goodlaw. Not very subtle.
* ModestyShorts: Madeline is sensibly wearing (anachronistic) biker shorts under her leather skirt.
* TheNoseKnows: [[ How her detect evil works]]
* OffWithHisHead: In Level 6, she is carrying a vorpal halberd (which used to be a shovel) and uses it to one-shot a Remorhaz.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: They appear when she uses HealingHands!
* ThePaladin: One of the best examples on the Internet.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Receives a +2 Trident of Warning from Zar the Psion just before returning to Reality in Level 7. Bloods it against a girallon in strip [[ #61]]. Its power of detecting hostile aquatic life saves her from a nasty trap in [[ strip #60]].
* ResurrectionSickness: [[spoiler:Has suffered some after-effects from her death and resurrection at the end of Level 7]].
* ShovelStrike: Madeline's weapon of choice in Level 6.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Derek when he appears proves patient, reasonable, courageous and taking his oath of non-violence seriously.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: Madeline shows us how it's done in the page image for this trope.
* SticksToTheBack: Madeline's hoe.
* StupidGood: On occasion. Such as condoling with a monster that still has a companion of hers in a chokehold.
* TookALevelInBadass: Offscreen; every time she reappears she's ground out a lot of levels.

!!Roxanne Casbaugh
An elven bard who was reared by human barbarians.

* ActionSurvivor: She's not really a fighter like the other girls, but is pretty good at thinking on her feet and gets a lot of mileage out of MagicMusic.
* TheBard: Duh.
* BlindingBangs: [[spoiler:While mingling with the Pixie Chicks.]]
* CharmPerson: Her music can manipulate the emotions of others, which is useful for [[WeNeedADistraction distractions]].
* ChekhovsSkill: Roxanne is seen whittling an axe handle and a pointer stick/drawing stylus. Later in the chapter, [[spoiler:she combines her massive Whittling score with her Bard class to make a [[BrownNote dog whistle]] in the middle of a pack of gnolls]].
* ExpressiveAccessory: The feather atop Roxanne's NiceHat flops down or straightens up depending on her mood.
* GuileHeroine: She picks up the slack with her wits and a dab of MagicMusic.
* TheLeader: The level-headed sort, she's the one to take charge when [[spoiler:Mimic and Cube are captured by Grinner]].
* MakeMeWannaShout: [[ She's seen]] learning the Shout spell with help from Presti at the start of Level 7. [[ChekhovsSkill It comes in handy later]].
* TheMedic: As a Bard, she's got access to a host of HealingHands abilities, and is the character most frequently seen using them.
* MusicForCourage: To the complaints of her companions.
* NiceHat: She has a big, two-colored turban-like headwear with a huge feather.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Mostly {{averted}}. Roxy rarely if ever acts uppity or otherwise different from other species just because she's an elf.
* PointyEars: Really long ones, since she's an elf.
* PunnyName: It's a nod to [[Music/TheClash "Rock the Casbah"]].
* QuirkyBard: Averted; she might be a bard but still is a force to be reckoned with.
* RoyalRapier: Stabs lends her one during the Level 7 adventure.
* WanderingMinstrel

!!Stabitha "Stabs" Doogan
A cheerful and easy-to-anger halfling rogue, who likes treasure.

* TheBartender: After getting lots of loot in an adventure, she bought the bar called "Ye Old Proverbial Hook".
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Standard for a halfling, she doesn't bother with footwear.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Everyone calls her "Stabs".
* FantasticSlur: She refers to Medium-sized species as "twicelings".
* FieryRedhead: Big time. Stabs is ''very'' easy to anger or excite.
* {{Halfling}}: Her species.
* KnifeNut: Best exemplified [[ when she meets Presti]], and she pulls out ''twelve'' daggers at once.
* TheNapoleon: Her shorter size lends her to some rather obvious animosity towards her Medium-sized allies.
* TheNoseKnows: It's a Halfling trait. She can tell Presti is a cop by smell.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: The smallest protagonist, and one of the best fighters.

!!Prestige Perkins
An overeager human wizard, who works as a law enforcement official for the Princess. Easily excitable.

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: As she says: "[[ Prestige Perkins, practiced practitioner of practical prestidigitation]]".
%%* AlliterativeName / MeaningfulName
* {{BFG}}: Her [[ second]] "Badger Launcher" is a ''literal bazooka'' that fires [[AbnormalAmmo rhinos]]. [[ And]] it can [[FastballSpecial stick other people up the barrel and fire them too]].
* ButtMonkey: Between her crushing student loan debt, being put on cleaning duty for a week right after taking a serious beating, and being [[ knocked]] into a room full of painful traps by a vengeful Stabs, this wizard can't seem to catch a break.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's always got a quip ready for any occasion.
* Fireballs: Prestige, being at least a level 5 wizard, can cast one, but prefers to save it for big fights.
* GadgeteerGenius: She manages to link together a couple of minor magic items into [[ a gun that fires badgers]], and later upgrades to a [[ weightless bazooka]] that fires rhinos.
* GenkiGirl: Initially. There's a bit of CharacterizationMarchesOn when it comes to this trope.
* GuileHero: Well, Heroine. She has an oddly high success rate for bluffing her way out of things for a Wizard.
* OhMyGods: [[ Her reaction]] to Mimic and Cube's trap.
* PaperThinDisguise: [[ It's her ability to fake an illithid's smell that helps pull this off]].
* PurpleIsPowerful: All of her outfits are some variation of purple.
* SassyBlackWoman: As a DeadpanSnarker and the TokenMinority of the main cast.
* SkirtOverSlacks: Her wizard robes.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Presti isn't small, but her "MK-II Badger Launcher" is [[ larger than her]].
* TheSmartGirl: She's the Wizard, it comes with the territory.
* TryAndFollow: She [[ manages]] to bluff a illithid into jumping out a window.
* VancianMagic: As a wizard, she's forced to follow this system. Her [[ Color Spray]] spells even have the UnsoundEffect "Vance!" to serve as a VisualPun nod to this trope.

!!Y.T. (formerly known as Yuan-Tiffany)
A lamia (formerly a yuan-ti) with red braids and a distinctive Western accent. Notable for working both against and with the group at different points.

* CuteMonsterGirl
* EnemyMine: Why she teamed up with the trio against the [[spoiler:hipster vampires]].
* {{Guile Hero}}ine: She prefers deception (pretending to be human to lure the group in) and cleverness ([[spoiler:calling in a garlic pizza order for the hipster vampires]]) over direct confrontation.
* {{Retcon}}: Due to legal issues, she went from being a yuan-ti to a lamia.
* SnakePeople: As a lamia/yuan-ti. It's implied there are others.
* SssssnakeTalk: Coupled with a Western accent.

A human cleric, a friend of Madeline's, and green.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: She has green skin and was mistaken for an orc at first sight by some readers, but WordOfGod confirms she's actually just an oddly colored human.
* BerserkButton: She blames Mimic for Madeline's [[spoiler: ResurrectionSickness]] and makes her displeasure very clear.
* CombatMedic: Implied. Unlike Derek, she didn't take a vow of non-violence, and wears armor reminiscent of Madeline's (except silver).
* DeathGlare: [[ Dorilys wears one that manages to make her look dangerous while]] [[ImprovisedWeapon brandishing a feather]].
* DisasterDominoes:
** Does this deliberately, [[ somehow setting off a chain reaction by tickling someone's nose with a feather, which has the end result of making Malevolus poison himself instead of his targets.]]
** [[ Later Mimic manages to tap in on it.]] [[ Dorilys warns him against doing it again, because he has no idea what he got into.]]
* GuileHeroine: With a judiciously placed kick, she [[spoiler:takes out a troll with an upside-down cake]] while still leaning on the wall.
* ImprovisedWeapon: It's amazing what you can do with [[spoiler:a cake]].
* LadyLegionnaireWear: Her outfit -- rather similar to Madeline's.
* TheMedic: First appears in the hospital, with the armband, during the gnomish baseball game.
* RebelRelaxation: When waiting [[ at the hospital]] or [[ bar]].
* StatuesqueStunner: In the opinion of the halfling Kris. "[[ Jolly green giant]]" was probably not the wisest way to put it.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Of a Kickstarter supporter's ''D&D'' character.
* WindsOfDestinyChange: Implied to be her power. With simple actions, she can cause extremely improbable events. She warns Mimic not to mess with it.

[[folder:The Villains]]
These guys are generally evil, when they aren't being funny.

The ultimately cliché EvilSorcerer, much to his detriment.

* ArchEnemy: To the Princess, for having kidnapped her and moreso for [[spoiler:having killed her wight boyfriend]].
* CollapsingLair: Attempts to destroy the party by bringing his lair down on their heads, but [[spoiler:the Cube intervenes just on time]].
* EvilGloating
* EvilLaugh
* EvilSorcerer: Revels in this.
* TheFaceless
* FailedASpotCheck: Calamitus turns missing the obvious into an art form. His first appearance saw him spying on the heroes using a crystal ball, and completely failing to notice they're standing right in front of him. Another appearance has him [[spoiler:brainwashing civilians and sending them to attack the Princess. He starts [[EvilGloating gloating]] about how she is [[CharacterAlignment alignment-bound from harming innocents]], and when he finally pays a look at the room, let's just say he understands he has misjudged her alignment a bit.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* HarmlessVillain: Played with. Even though he is not a very ''smart'' villain, he ''is'' a powerful enough sorcerer to present some challenge to the group. He is also very hard to kill due to his necromantic powers.
* InTheHood
* LargeHam: He seems to be absolutely incapable of talking without hamming it up.
* LaughablyEvil: Oh yes.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Another staple of the standard cliché evil sorcerer.
* {{Necromancer}}: [[spoiler:How he was able to turn Whitey.]] Considering that he came back after being [[spoiler:eaten by Cube]], it is probably safe to assume he's also a [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]].
* ShockAndAwe
* WarmupBoss: The first villain the party encounters, and not a very good one at that. [[spoiler:He [[TookALevelInBadass takes a slight level in badass]] by the time the group reaches level 4, but is still as silly as ever.]]

A dwarven pirate with an unusually odd-colored beard.

* BoastfulRap: In his rap battle with Mimic.
* ButtMonkey: He's pretty much been this since his first appearance.
* CaptainColorbeard
* DressedToPlunder
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame: Subverted; as a plaid-bearded dwarf pirate, he breaks the mold a bit.
* RealityWarper: When he gets ahold of the Belt of Genre Changing.
* TalkLikeAPirate
* UnmovingPlaid: His beard, obviously.

!!The Grinner
A charming gnoll bandit with a killer smile. Literally.

* BigBad: [[spoiler:Of Level 7.]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Well, half the Gnoll, courtesy of Robespierre.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Madeline was his first (and thankfully only) kill]].
* PullingThemselvesTogether: Offscreen (and with a few parts replaced), but he did this.
* TakingYouWithMe: Declares that he's going to do this to Cube. [[spoiler:Stabs makes sure he doesn't get to pull it off.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: After the crew fall face-first into his meticulously constructed ambush but it fails anyway, his suave façade falls apart into {{Angrish}} in three pages flat.
-->'''Grinner:''' [[ You...]] '''[[ThisCannotBe You can't ]]''[[ThisCannotBe do]]'' [[ThisCannotBe that!]]'''

A gnoll with the face of a pug and a cousin of The Grinner.

* {{Bouncer}}: Becomes one for Stabs, keeping people out unless they can give him a riddle he can't answer.
* DumbMuscle: He is very big and strong, but not particularly intelligent and frequently goofs up his orders.
* PunchClockVillain: As soon as Grinner is defeated, his next line is "You hiring?" He proceeds to become a bouncer for Stabitha's bar.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Not of a supporter, but of his pet pug.

!!Don Polpo
Leader of the illithid mafia.

* TheDon
* FatBastard: He's packing the pounds, compared to his underlings.
* MeaningfulName: ''Polpo'' is ''octopus'' in Italian. It's fitting for an illithid.
* TheMafia: He sits at the head of a fantastic counterpart of this.
* TheVoiceless: His minions do all the talking.

Blackguard and uncommonly prudent minion.

* LastSecondWordSwap: He switches his BadAssBoast to directions [[ when he realizes he will lose]].
* PoisonedWeapons: See TechnicolorToxin
* RebusBubble: Thinks through the encounter with this.
* RoyalBlood: [[spoiler:He's actually a distant relative of the Princess, meaning that if certain people (including her) were to be "removed", he would be crowned king.]]
* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: Currently the page image -- after realizing how an encounter with a rusty monster and a gelatinous cube would end.
* SpeechBubbles: He speaks in a black-letter font, on vaguely scroll-shaped bubbles. When making an effort to disguise his voice, the speech bubbles turn to normal.
* TechnicolorToxin: When he goes to assassinate witnesses with poison, [[ his dagger is green]].

!!Hipster Vampires (a.k.a. "Ezra and Koenig")
A brother and sister, and oh so hip.

* AchillesHeel: "Koenig" claims that he's used the MacGuffin of the adventure to remove all of their vampire weaknesses, so Y.T. exploits his ''hipster'' weaknesses by shoving a pizza in his face and letting his intolerance to gluten [[ImMelting do the rest]].
* BigBad: "Koenig", the male, is the one calling the shots, and whose plan started the whole Level 6 adventure.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Black eyes with yellow pupils.
* CuteLittleFangs
* DoesNotLikeShoes: "Ezra" initially just wears flip-flops, and those are not terribly fitting for running around and fighting, so she soon ends up barefoot and stays this way.
* TheDragon: "Ezra", the female, is the one most willing to tussle physically with the heroes.
* GenderBlenderName: "Ezra"
* {{Hipster}}: It's even pointed out in their description on the cast page.
* HypnoticEyes: Ezra has swirly black-and-yellow eyes when she uses her domination power on Madeline.
* ImmortalityHurts: A running gag with "Ezra".
* ItsQuietTooQuiet: ''So'' cliché!
* LogicalWeakness: DoubleSubverted when Y.T. kills "Koenig" by shoving a pizza in his face. Mimic expects that it was the pizza's triple garlic toppings that killed him, but "Ezra" reminds them that they used the MacGuffin to remove all their vampire weaknesses. Instead, Y.T. exploited his ''hipster'' weaknesses and used his gluten intolerance to kill him.
* LosingYourHead: A vampire can indeed survive this. Cube finally counters her regeneration by twisting the head backward.
* [[OffWithHisHead Off with Her Head!]]: Happens to "Ezra"... at least half a dozen times already.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: "Ezra" [[ makes a break for it]] when Y.T. gets her hands on the MacGuffin that removed their vampire weaknesses, and [[ tricks her into thinking that she put them back]].
* SeenItAll: Something they frequently complain about and their motive for summoning an EldritchAbomination. ''Then'' they'll see something new.
* ShoutOut: The names Mimic gives them are one to [[ Ezra Koenig]], the frontman for the indie rock band Vampire Weekend.
* SiblingsInCrime
* TheUnpronounceable: The brother claims their names are this, which leads to them being given nicknames.
* WardrobeWound: "Ezra" cares more for the damage done to her dress than to her regenerating body.
-->'''Ezra:''' That dress was '''vintage!'''
* WeaksauceWeakness: "Koenig" gets reduced to a skeleton through his trendy gluten intolerance.

The physical embodiment of all of the evil in Madeline. She's a few inches tall.

* BoisterousWeakling: Self-proclaims herself as awesome. She's obviously incapable of directly fighting pretty much anyone.
* EnemyWithout: She's the darkness inside Madeline given form through magic. However, because the Paladin is close to IncorruptiblePurePureness, the spell hasn't much to work with and results in a tiny EvilCounterpart.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Giving advice on Malevolus's shoulder. He asks for the other one -- and regrets it.
* FashionableAsymmetry: The top of her armor is asymmetrical, with one arm-guard on the left side and one shoulder-pad on the right.
* LadySwearsALot: The verbal bombs she drops are all covered by {{censor box}}es. She has at least one box for every page she shows up in.
* {{Lilliputians}}: Minus the plural, since she's the only one. A Patreon reward bonus comic shows her adventuring in a mouse kingdom.
* PaletteSwap: As fitting for an opposite, her color scheme is largely an inversion of the colors Madeline usually wears, the armor in various tones of orange and brown becoming light to dark blue on Anti-Madeline.
* ShoulderTeammate: Likes to get up on Malevolus's shoulder once she joins up with him.
* SinisterScythe: She brandishes a miniature one, following her GoodCounterpart's propensity for farm implements as weapons.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Her armor includes spikes on the shoulder-pad and around her hips.
* SymbolSwearing: As an alternative to her cuss words simply being censored, her swearing is sometimes rendered as symbols.

Two talking doors, one red and one green, making brief but repeated appearances.

* EvilLaugh: The red door exults that with their hinges inside, they are invulnerable and laughs.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Inverted: at one point Cub uses ''them'' as weapons.
* KnightsAndKnaves: Their chief trick.
* OfferVoidInNebraska: [[ The second time, telling the truth is void during the full moon and Yon Kipper, among other things]].
* TakeAThirdOption: The puzzle is never played out in the traditional way.
** Mimic's solution? Become a third door.
** In level 5, Rusty's solution is deliciously straightforward, and [[{{Pun}} hinges]] on [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer his ability to eat metal]].
** [[ Stabs]] elegantly [[spoiler:walks past]].
* WeaksauceWeakness: Being doors, they have hinges. This does not mix well with Rusty.

[[folder:The Others]]
!! Robespierre "Petey"
Barbarian. Made a cameo in the earliest strips, only to reappear as Roxy's adoptive brother.

* AscendedExtra: He's just a recurring extra used for some gags in the early levels, but he's central to starting the plot of level 8 and becomes a supporting protagonist.
* DumbMuscle: Deeply annoyed that cleverness and speed win the game.
* ImpactSilhouette: When angry enough, he leaves the bar through the wall, leaving such a hole.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Trapped between him and a monster, Mimic calls on his "bodyguard" to protect him; both assume it's the other, and Mimic escapes.
* ThereWasADoor: Roxy realizes he's leaving; Stabs objects that he's not going to a door; Roxy is right.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Nevertheless regards Roxy as a respected member of Robespierre's family, despite insistence on using personal pronouns.
* VisibleSilence: Robespierre does this upon being approached by an information-seeking Mimic.

A Bottle Fairy. In both senses. With a riddle.

* CantHoldHisLiquor: Perhaps because she's always drunk a lot.
* FairyInABottle: She's found inside a bottle. She also happens to be a [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl "bottle fairy".]]
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Appears on Malevolus's shoulder as the good angel -- kinda.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: This "bottle fairy" happens to be a FairyInABottle.
* OnlyTheKnowledgableMayPass: The bottle fairy does this, by accident.
* RiddleMeThis: The bottle fairy tries this but has clearly forgotten the riddle.
* StealthPun: She's a [[ green fairy]].
* VisualPun: The whole "bottle fairy" thing.

!!Zar the Psion
A farmer in an alternate dimension who gives the Action Girls team useful advice about the danger.

* CallToAgriculture: He raises flowers. Mind, you, flowers made of gold.
* LevitatingLotusPosition: Zar the Psion uses floating in this posture to get around.
* PsychicPowers: Telepathy, levitation, and clairvoyance -- at least.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Though non-evil and rather helpful, annoying him will make [[ his eyes glow a menacing red]].
* {{Tuckerization}}: Of a supporting RPG character.
* YearInsideHourOutside: From his dialogue, there is a time differential going on in the magical dimension where the girls meet him.
-->'''Zar:''' One day ago, for you, and five weeks ago, for me, was the largest sustained breach our Reality ever experienced.

!! Dirk and Kris
A pair of Halfling rogues and Stabs's cousins.

* BigEater: Kris. Malevolus comments on it while wondering whether to [[spoiler:poison him]].
* CasanovaWannabe: Kris has no problem flirting with twiceling females. Stabs is familiar enough with his attempts to assure Dorilys that he's easily distracted.
* MeaningfulName: Knives seem to be a theme for the Doogan family.
* SiblingsInCrime: They are hiding out from someone who tried to hire them, but that was the target, not the job.
* ThievesCant: Family conversations often need translations for the audience.
* ThroughHisStomach: Kris offers Dorilys a sandwich in an inept pass.
* WeaponOfChoice: Kris actually fights with a pair of krises, and Dirk with a pair of dirks.

!!Derek the Cleric
An associate of Madeline's.

* ActualPacifist: Thanks to his vow of non-violence.
* BadassPacifist: Has no qualms whatsoever about standing between a furious troll and his patient and offering to discuss the matter. When he later participates in an actual fight, while he does not himself attack, he shows himself to be fully capable of defending himself and manages to immobilize two of his three opponents before the fight is stopped.
* BlindfoldedVision: Like Madeline, closes his eyes when he needs to actually fight. We still don't know why.
* {{Foil}}: To Dorilys. Derek's a pure healer cleric who took a vow of non-violence. Dorilys on the other hand, is more or less the classic "ChurchMilitant in plate armor" Cleric. They even have the appropriate [[RedOniBlueOni temperaments]].
* TheGhost: Does not appear for some time. For logical reasons. [[spoiler:Though one cameo, unnamed, turns out to have been him.]]
* {{Herald}}: Twice sent Maddie off with prophecies that led to adventure.
* IGaveMyWord: He explicitly points out that he didn't take his vow to ignore it when it is inconvenient, and it's clear that he doesn't like technicalities.
* IntrinsicVow: Has definitely taken a vow (discussed with Dorilys), and after a few comics it became clear that it is to be an ActualPacifist.
* TheMedic: First appears in a hospital.
* ObliviousToLove: In face of Madeline's CrushBlush, [[ he wonders about whether she's well, since she's flushed.]]
* PropheciesRhymeAllTheTime: Which Mimic comments on.
* {{Seer|s}}: He owns an artifact that simulates probabilities and has the training required to use it. His prophecies have sent Madeline on her quests.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: {{Averted}}. Derek is apparently a capable therapist, and attempts some counseling to help Maddie with her ResurrectionSickness.
