Major characters in ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'':

[[foldercontrol]]

[[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.
* MonsterAdventurers

!!Mimic
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.
* 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 [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-8-17/ admits]] that his [[EmbarrassingFirstName real]] name is [[PunnyName Boxford]].]]
* FacePalm: No, Mimic has neither face nor palm. [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-6-14/ 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.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Well, yeah. He's a mimic, it's his thing.

!!Rusty
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.
* 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

* {{Big Damn Hero|es}}: 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: [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-88/ 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]]

[[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.

* ActionGirl: All of them.
* GuestStarPartyMember: all of them. For the first three levels, in the most straightforward way but it's gotten more complex.
* 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.".

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

* [[AntiHero 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.
* BadassPrincess: Natch.
* BareFistedMonk
* BareYourMidriff
* CoolHat: Her hennin (which she wears all the time) is her only concession to the classic princess look.
* 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]]: 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]]
* TheLadette
* MulticoloredHair: Purple with a blonde lock.
* NiceHat: She's never seen without one.
* PaperThinDisguise: [[spoiler:She really should take off her hat first.]]
* 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
* 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.

* ActionHero: A straightforward paladin {{Badass}} in a cast full of [[GuileHero Guile Heroes]].
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: 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 [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-81/ 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.
* 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.
** [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-8-41/ Still more in his presence.]]
* TheCutie: Despite being one of the most {{Badass}} characters in the comic.
* DetectEvil: Through smell.
* TheDitz: Maddy 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 most recently she turned 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. 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: [[http://rustyandco.com/missives/critical-missives-7/ 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: Recieves a +2 Trident Of Warning from Zar the Psion just before returning to Reality in Level 7. Bloods it against a girallon in strip [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-61/ #61]].
** Its power of detecting hostile aquatic life saves her from a nasty trap in [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-60/#comments this]] strip.
* [[spoiler: ResurrectionSickness: Has suffered some aftereffects from her death and resurrection at the end of Level 7]].
* ShovelStrike: Madeline's weapon of choice in Level 6.
* 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.
* ThroughHisStomach: Since he's her friend, and in the hospital, she brings Mimic an upside-down cake -- which turns [[TheKlutz rightside up when she drops it]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Offscreen; every time she reappears she's ground out a lot of levels.

!!Roxanne Casbaugh
An elven bard who was raised by barbarians.

* ActionSurvivor: See GuileHeroine below.
* 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 isn't a full-on ActionGirl like the rest of the team, and instead 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: [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-title/ 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".
* 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 [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-5-6/ when she meets Presti]], and she pulls out ''twelve'' daggers at once.
* TheNapoleon: Her shorter size lends her some rather obvious animosity towards her Medium-sized allies.
* TheNoseKnows: It's a Halfling trait.
* 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: Prestige Perkins, practiced practitioner of practical prestidigitation.
* AlliterativeName / MeaningfulName
* {{BFG}}: Her second "Badger Launcher" is a ''literal bazooka'' that fires [[AbnormalAmmo rhinos]].
** FastballSpecial: And it can 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.
* {{Fireball|s}}: 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.
* {{Guile Hero}}ine: She has an oddly high success rate for bluffing her way out of things for a Wizard.
* OhMyGods: [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-5-4/ Her reaction]] to Mimic and Cube's trap.
* PaperThinDisguise: [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-5-24/ 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" [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-29/ is positively huge]].
* TheSmartGirl: She's the Wizard, it comes with the territory.
* TryAndFollow: She [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-5-23/ manages]] to bluff a illithid into jumping out a window.
* VancianMagic: As a wizard, she's forced to follow this system. Her [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-5-1/ 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.

!!Dorilys
A human cleric, a friend of Madeline's, and green.
* 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.
* 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]].
* TheMedic: first appears in the hospital, with the armband, during the gnomish baseball game
* {{Tuckerization}}: Of a Kickstarter supporter's D&D character.
[[/folder]]

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

!!Calamitus
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 cliche 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.]]

!!Plaidbeard
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 a hold of the Belt of Genre Changing.
* TalkLikeAPirate
* UnmovingPlaid: His beard, obviously.

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

* [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe Half the Gnoll He Used to Be]]: Courtesy of Robespierre.
* 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 facade falls apart into {{Angrish}} in three pages flat.
--> '''Grinner:''' [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-79/ You...]] '''[[ThisCannotBe You can't ]]''[[ThisCannotBe do]]'' [[ThisCannotBe that!]]'''

!!Slobber
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.

!!Malevolus
Death knight and uncommonly prudent minion.

* LastSecondWordSwap: He switches his BadAssBoast to directions when he realizes he will lose.
* 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.


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

* 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 wore flip-flops, and those are not terribly fitting for running around and fighting, so she soon stays barefoot.
* 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: Used on Madeline.
* ImmortalityHurts: A running gag with "Ezra".
* ItsQuietTooQuiet: ''So'' cliché!
* 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.
* SeenItAll
* 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.

!!Anti-Madeline:
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.
* 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.
* 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.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Others]]
!! Robespierre "Petey"
Barbarian. Made a cameo in the earliest strips, only to reappear as [[spoiler:Roxy's adoptive brother]].
* AscendedExtra
* HulkSpeak: "ROBESPIEREE SMASH!"
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Trapped between him and a monster, Mimic calls on his "bodyguard" to protect him; both assume it's the other, and Mimic escapes.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Nevertheless regards [[spoiler: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.

!! Bottle Fairy
In both senses. With a riddle.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Perhaps because she's always drunk a lot.
* FairyInABottle: Who 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.
* VisualPun: She's a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absinthe green fairy]]

!!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 this to get around.
* PsychicPowers: Telepathy, levitation, and clairvoyance -- at least.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Though non-evil and rather helpful, annoying him will make [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-17/ his eyes will glow a menacing red]].
* {{Tuckerization}}: Of a supporter's RPG character.
* YearInsideHourOutside: From his dialogue, something like this is 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
Halflings -- Stabs's brothers.

* MeaningfulName: Knives seem to be a theme.
* 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.

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

* ActualPacifist: Thanks to his vow of non-violence.
* {{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 except when it was 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, [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-8-41/ he wonders about whether she's well, since she's flushed.]]
* PropheciesRhymeAllTheTime: Which Mimic comments on.
* [[{{Seers}} Seer]]: Prophecies.
