Characters: SSX

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.

Mac Fraser

Moby Jones

Elise Riggs

Kaori Nishidake

  • 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.

Jurgen Angermann

  • Put on a Bus: He only ever appeared as a cheat character in 3 after the original game.

Zoe Payne

  • Action Girl: Her favorite reading? SAS survival training. No, not a required read for what she goes through, her fave.
  • Bad Ass: Hell yeah. Ace snowboard, surf and motorcross champion? She grinds a mid air helicopter in her first trick event, check. Action Girl? She enjoys SAS survival training, check. Firey Redhead? She would play Shepard, in a film given half a chance and closely match her awesomeness, check.
  • 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.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: And she's close friends with Moby, the other character of this franchise with average stats.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: Zoe's thoughts of her role as founder of SSX: Best. Job. Ever.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: Co-founder of SSX and was the one who started the idea in SSX 2012
  • Self-Deprecation: When she crashes in 3, she gets very mad at herself.
  • Tomboy

JP Aresnault

Hiro Karamatsu

  • 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 Tricky

A 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.

Eddie Wachowski

Broderick "Brodi" Ford

Marisol Diez Delgado

Psymon Stark

Seeiah Owens

Luther-Dwayne Grady

Introduced in SSX 3

DJ Atomika

  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Lemony Narrator: Since DJ Atomika's commentary only comes on in between events or when it's time to introduce a song, he spends a lot more time discussing weird local news and fleshing out the lore of Big Mountain and the SSX circuit.
  • The Voice: Like Rahzel, he's not a rider himself, but commentates on everything that's going on.

Tane Mumea

  • Expy: He's Brodi, but tanner and without the spiritual trappings.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie
  • Remember the New Guy: He's introduced as a founding member of Team SSX, and is apparently an old friend of Zoe's, despite never having appeared in any of the previous games.
  • Surfer Dude

Thor "Ty" Thorsen
