Introduced in SSX
- Put on a Bus: DJ Atomika seems to have replaced him as the voice of SSX.
- The Voice: Doesn't make an in-game physical appearance in either of the first two games, but does serve as the main commentator.
- The Casanova: According to his bio in SSX 2012, he is a ladies man.
- Flanderization: Originally, he was just The Kid, but in Tricky, he evolved into Pretty Fly (For a White Guy).
- In the Hood: His main outfit in SSX 2012 consists of ski jackets with the hood up.
- The Kid: Before Griff came along, Mac was the youngest competitor on the circuit.
- Pretty Fly (For a White Guy): What he became in Tricky after his Flanderization.
- Putting the Band Back Together: Along with Zoe, Mac is one of the former boarders who formed the new world tour in SSX 2012.
- Weak, but Skilled: In the first two games, he had plenty of skill when it comes to tricks, but he got smacked around quite a bit.
- Flanderization: Originally, he was just the risk-taker. Tricky made him a full-on badass.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: He's around average in all stats, and he has a board which helps in races and freestyle events.
- Knight in Shining Armor: What some of his costume options in 3 add up to.
- Patriotic Fervor: Wearing a Flag on Your Head is second nature when you're Moby. The Union Jack's gone pretty much everywhere on his outfit at some point, including his board.
- Put on a Bus: In On Tour, but he's mentioned in the ending. The Bus Came Back for Blur, but his trademark dreadlocks didn't.
- The dreads were apparently on a different bus, because they returned in the latest game.
- Scary Black Man: He's pretty intimidating in appearance.

- Statuesque Stunner: She stands 5'11" (180 cm).
- Stripperiffic: Win some events in 3 and she'll be riding in a bikini!
- Berserk Button: Intentional thuggery in a competition does NOT sit well with Kaori.
- The Cutie
- Dye Hard: She has a pink streak in her hair in SSX 2012.
- Genki Girl: So much so that she was one of the few characters who wasn't Flanderized for Tricky; she didn't have to be.
- Gratuitous English: She speaks a bit of English in these cutscenes in Tricky, but largely averted in 3; she only speaks English in the character selection screen.
- Put on a Bus: He only ever appeared as a cheat character in 3 after the original game.
- Action Girl: Her favorite reading? SAS survival training. No, not a required read for what she goes through, her fave.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her primary form of Fanservice.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Going Commando: One question during an interview is whether she prefers boxers or briefs. Her reply and love for special forces makes it easy to guess.
- The Hero: In SSX 2012, she leads the team in their quest to go down all nine Deadly Descents.
- Informed Ability: DJ Atomika claims multiple times in 3 that she's a talented musician, but we've never seen any evidence supporting this. Of course, it could just be that Atomika's into her.

- Flanderization: Went from stylish to full-on egotist in Tricky.
- French Jerk
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He's a Jerkass with a fragile ego who puts on a Jerkass Fašade to hide it. How's that for a Mind Screw?
- Put on a Bus: He wasn't a standalone character between Tricky and Blur.
- Small Name, Big Ego
- You Don't Look Like You: His blue hair and pencil-thin mustache in Blur are a far cry from his old look.
- Fragile Speedster: He's a naturally speedy guy who's the only one to mainly have the Alpine board type, which plays to speed and acceleration. However, his stability isn't so good.
- Put on a Bus: He had a similar situation to Jurgen after the original.
Introduced in SSX TrickyA lot of the characters in this batch were Put on a Bus; some of them only appeared as standalone characters in this game. We won't list it in these sections unless it isn't played straight.
- New-Age Retro Hippie: Eddie's theme in SSX 2012.
- Rummage Sale Reject: Most of his outfits look like a thrift store exploded on him.
- The Bus Came Back: Eddie is coming back to SSX 2012.

- Bare Your Midriff: Some of his outfits feature this.
- Erudite Stoner: His pseudo-Buddhist philosophical ramblings peg him as this.
- Mr. Fanservice
- Surfer Dude
- Technical Pacifist: He may be a peaceful guy, but that doesn't stop you from punching everybody around when you play as him. Of course, it'd be Out of Character for him to do that.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
Marisol Diez Delgado
- Bare Your Midriff

- Ink-Suit Actor: According to his original voice actor Jim Rose, Psymon is just a fictionalized version of him.
- Kubrick Stare: Is fond of this pose.
- Large Ham: His volume is set to 10 at all times, and his voice actor is clearly enjoying playing up the insanity.
- Laughing Mad: He'll occasionally burst into manic laughter without warning.
- Not What I Signed On For: Apparently, the reason why Psymon left the tour in the first place and why he was so reluctant to signing back up on the team was because he was sick of the sponsorship and corporate dealings.

- The Quincy Punk: His On Tour redesign, complete with a red mohawk.
- Talkative Loon: "FRENCH TOAST AND SYRUUUUUUUUUP!"
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Several of his outfits lack a shirt.
- You Don't Look Like You: After 3, Psymon has been unable to keep a consistent look thanks to a mix of art shifts and changes in his design. In On Tour, he looks like a punk rocker, Blur gives him dreadlocks and a thrash metal look, and in the 2012 game, he looks almost like a regular guy.
