!!Main Characters

[[folder:Scott Pilgrim]]
[[caption-width-right:350:'''Scott Pilgrim'''[softreturn]Sketchy-ass 24-year-old[softreturn]Rating: Awesome]]

Our hero of the story. Scott is a dull-witted but somewhat kind-hearted unemployed slacker (additionally, the bassist of a band called Sex Bob-Omb). Despite his various faults, he is ultimately a good person. Most of the other characters either tolerate him as a person or are actively trying to kill him. He falls in love with Ramona Flowers, but in order to win her heart he has to defeat her seven evil exes.
* AchillesInHisTent: For the first part of volume 6. [[HesBack His wilderness sabbatical allows him to recover]].
* {{Adorkable}}: He has a dorky and awkward charm that is endearing to him.
* AmbiguousDisorder: It becomes increasingly apparent as the series continues that he has ''some'' sort of emotional or even mental disorder, but it's never specified what exactly it is.
** The first book does have his mental landscape be a desolate desert while he mourns on feeling alone, indicating potential feelings of emotional isolation and loneliness.
** [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm He also has problems understanding sarcasm.]]
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:He was killed by Gideon when he was stabbed with his own sword, but resurrected thanks to his extra life]].
* BornLucky: He manages to be in a pretty good spot and with a close-knit (if fairly dysfunctional) group of friends and holds his own against the exes. [[spoiler: His luck runs out in Volume 5 though.]]
--> '''Kim Pine:''' Scott, if your life had a face, I would punch it. I would punch your life in the face.
* CerebusRetcon: Very Downplayed example, but [[spoiler: it becomes increasingly more apparent as the series goes on that Scott isn't as nice as he holds himself to be. He has made his fair share of mistakes, but the main issue is his seeming reluctance or inability to take responsability for them.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: He becomes progressively more mature and aware of his faults as the series goes on. [[spoiler: He notably ends the series not ''finished'' with his development, but there is a clear implication that he's on his way.]]
* ChekhovsSkill: In book 2 it's shown that Scott is an exceedingly good cook. When he gets a job at a restaurant in book four [[AvertedTrope he's relegated to a dishwasher.]] [[spoiler:Played straight at the end of Volume 6. Scott Pilgrim, greatest prep chef in the world. He does still mess up an order though.]]
--> '''Stephen Stills:''' Whatever, they ordered at 10:55. They're getting a salad.
* ChickMagnet: Something of a {{Deconstruction}} of one. Scott is unusually talented at attracting women, to the point where almost the entire female cast of the series show at least passing interest in him at one point or another, but him being a Cloudcuckoolander means that things may not go well for any of them involved. See Cloudcuckoolander for more details.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He is a {{Deconstruction}} of one. His quirks causes a lot of problems since his accidental insensitivity and difficulties in emotional understanding lead to him inadvertably hurting people while also bringing grief to himself. He makes impulsive and ill-thought out decisions that hurt himself and others, but he doesn't seem to fully understand the ramifications until later on nor does he seem to know how to properly confront the issues.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Scott Pilgrim may be not be bright but he's also the "best fighter in the province".
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Knives holds no ill will to him despite him cheating on her with Ramona.]]
* EpiphanyTherapy: Has two; one when he visits Kim Pine at her parents home in the Wilderness and [[spoiler: confronts Nega-Scott]]; and one when [[spoiler:Gideon kills him and he remembers his extra life.]]
* EvilCounterpart:
** While Scott has mild shades of this with the exes, Gideon Graves stands out, which is elaborated in NotSoDifferent.
** A more straightforward example would be with Todd Ingram, the 3rd evil ex. Their sames sound similar, (Scott sounds like Todd and Ingram sounds like Pilgrim) and both are bassists in their band, (though Todd is much better at it than Scott). Furthermore, both have dated one another's girlfriends in the past (and been hurt by those same girls) and Todd even looks like a taller buffer version of Scott. However, Todd lacks any of Scott's positive qualities.
** Also, Nega-Scott. [[spoiler: Aversion, especially in the movie.]]
* FagHag: Male version. Young Neil is his only heterosexual male friend.
* FakeMemories: [[spoiler:Scott had his memories tampered with by Gideon ForTheEvulz. This becomes even more poblematic since Scott tends to suppress his less-than-pleasant memories, meaning he is operating on incomplete data that's been corrupted and or false for most of the story.]]
* GeniusDitz: For the most part, he's a ditzy dork who needs his friends' help or advice on most matters (though half the time at least, it also serves as PlotExposition and also serves to notify or explain things to the audience.) However, he is still the best fighter in the province and a talented cook. Ramona is surprised by the latter.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: "You had a sexy phase?!"
* GuileHero: He has a moment of this when he tricks Lucas Lee into pulling an impossible skateboarding trick to defeat him. He usually wins through force or luck though.
** The movie gave him another moment of this; he tricks Todd into drinking coffee with half-and-half. Further, he did this by knowing Todd would read his mind and choose the cup of coffee Scott wasn't offering... which was Scott's ''plan'' all along (since Scott just thought really hard about the other cup ). It's this moment of trickery that summons the Vegan Police (since it was his third strike and thus, loses his vegan powers.)
* HairTodayGoneTomorrow: His hair was much longer in university, until he got an ImportantHaircut right before the relationship fallout with Envy.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Happens in Volume 6 to Scott while he's inside Ramona's mind.
* TheHeart: While Scott can be insensitive, ditzy, and a flake, he is genuinely the most friendly and welcoming of the group. In fact, they all met one another through Scott and despite the snark, they call care about one another.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Scott dated two -- Kim and Envy.
* HeroicBSOD: Had two big ones. The first after being dumped by Envy and the second one when [[spoiler:Ramona left him alone]].
* IdiotHero: Scott is prone to plenty of mistakes as a result of not thinking things through and insensitivty, but he's still TheHero of the story and trying to improve.
* IgnoredEpiphany: Intially played straight, but later subverted [[spoiler: in that he needs to accept NegaScott as a part of him rather than something to overcome and defeat.]]
-->'''Kim:''' If you don't accept it, you'll keep making the same mistakes over and over again!!
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:Stabbed by Gideon in the Chaos Theatre.]]
* TheJailBaitWait: Early in the series, Scott gets a lot of grief from his friends for dating Knives, a high schooler (though Stephen dates her later on and Kim actually ''drunkenly kisses'' a bit after making it HypocriticalHumor). Ater Ramona vanishes, he tries to hook back up with Knives again after she finally turns 18, which leads to infamous "Sketchy-ass 24-year old" gag. Technically subverted due to Canada's age of constent being 16.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Downplayed. He's usually a NiceGuy, but he has some notable flaws that keep him from being completely clean cut such as insensitivity and unawareness when he hurts others' feelings, but he doesn't do it out of maliciousness.
* KarmaHoudini: Scott seems to get away pretty clean in regards to him cheating on Knives with Ramona [[spoiler: Until volume 5 that is.]]
* KavorkaMan: PlayedWith. While he's apparently considered attractive in-universe and is ultimately a decent and nice person, he has a pretty big deal of issues and that leads to people inadvertably getting hurt.
* LameComeback:
-->'''Scott''': Envy Adams? Partying with ''mere mortals''?\\
'''Envy''': *glare* \\
'''Scott''': Why don't you go back to... to... ''[[LameComeback Montrealhalla]]''.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia:
** [[spoiler: Downplayed and partially self-inflicted; he tends to repress the bad memories in regards to conflicts or misdeeds toward the people he cares about, especially his girlfriends. However, he never really forgot it; he knows he messed up but does not recall the details.]]
** Played striaght [[spoiler: when Gideon went and tampered with his memories ForTheEvulz. The purpose of his EpiphanyTherapy in the wilderness is to confront his mistakes and thus fix his memories.]]
* LevelUpAtIntimacy5: He gains the PowerOfLove after finally saying the "L Word"[[note]]"Love" not "Lesbian"[[/note]] to Ramona.
* MagikarpPower: The reason Scott didn't have a Skateboard Proficiency? He has a [[spoiler: Sword Proficiency]] instead. Convenient when one actually shows up.
* {{Manchild}}: He's a [[TheSlacker video-game playing slacker]] who relies on his roommate for financial support while being jobless (well, at the start, he was employed before his breakup) while being content with playing in a band with his friends.
* MarryThemAll: [[spoiler: In his game ending, Scott has a harem of Envy, Knives and Kim. [[SequelHook But does it make him happy?]]]]
* {{NEET}}: Up until Volume 4, Scott was "in between jobs" (he had lost his "dream job" shortly before Volume 1). He did attend to college, but he doesn't remember whether he graduated or not due to the psychological damage his break up with Envy caused him.
* NeverMyFault: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zigzagged and]][[SubvertedTrope even subverted]]. He knows he screws up a lot, but he doesn't understand the full rammification of some of his screwups toward his past girlfriends and a major theme is him coming to terms with owning up to his fair share of the problems.
** Furthermore, he actually doesn't blame anyone else for what happened; his approach seems to be to kinda try and leave it in the past without confronting the issues. This means he ends up making similar mistakes, albeit in different circumstances. (That or he may blame the circumstances themselves). As such, his mindset seems to be it's really no one's fault.
** At the same time, he's Subverted the trope by knowing and admitting he screwed up (if not knowing exactly why.) He apologized to Envy back in the end of Book 3 (she did the same) and earlier, he acknowledged that he hurt Knives and non-verbally apologized. Both cases, he did admit in making mistakes and owning up to it (even if he isn't clear on the details with Envy.) He also apologized to Kim also near the end in Book 5 (though the [[spoiler: Gideon screwing with his memories was why it took so long for him to do it, he didn't know he did anything wrong, or at least he suspected something was wrong, but didn't know what.]])
* NiceGuy: {{Downplayed|Trope}} While he's genuinely a friendly guy, it becomes clear over time that his tendency to think first of himself, run from his problems and make irrational or just plain stupid decisions on a whim make him much less of a good person than he'd like to think. Granted, none of those decisions are done out of malicious. Furthermore, he is working on overcoming these faults and becoming a better person.
* NobodyLovesTheBassist: Which is why he got stuck with the role -- no-one else wanted it.
* NotSoDifferent: Scott is this with Gideon. At first glance, it doesn't seem to be as Gideon is a larger-than-life media mogul compared to the somewhat nice slacker. However, both have been insensitive and not the best people with their romantic partners though in Scott's case, it wasn't out of maliciousness as it was with Gideon. Both also seem to show some form of social or emotional isolation; compare Scott feeling utterly alone in the first book in his head with Gideon admitting that he was trapped in his head since birth. [[spoiler: Scott realizing this commonality between them supposedly gives him a moment of understanding Gideon, and thus resolving to change and unlocking the Power of Understanding]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Scott:''' Gideon...I think I understand you, man....And now I have to kill you.]]
* ObliviouslyEvil: Connected to AmbiguousDisorder; Scott seems to not fully understand when he is acting insensitive or not thinking things through. He doesn't meant to hurt anybody, but his bad decisions still hurt him and others.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Wallace, who is his closest male friend, but also happens to be gay. Their relationship gets played for laughs a few times, with Ramona raising an eyebrow after learning that Scott shares a bed with a gay man, but is otherwise shown to be entirely platonic yet also incredibly strong.
* PrettyInMink: He is often seen in parkas.
* PsychopathicManchild: [[DownplayedTrope Pretty mild example.]] While Scott really doesn't have a mean bone in his body (he's an idiot, but he ain't mean) it becomes increasingly evident that Scott may have some psychological issues that's revealed via his dreams and feelings and serves as evidence for a potential AmbiguousDisorder. Book 6 has him actually go on a gradual mental breakdown and it's actually legitimately concerning (despite his friends' rather lackluster response) See SanitySlippage.
* RedOniBlueOni: His outgoing and mercurial nature contrasts heavily with most of the relatively laid back and sullen supporting cast, but is most pronounced when opposite [[CloserToEarth Ramona]], [[DeadpanSnarker Kim]], [[TheStoic Stephen Stills]] and [[TricksterMentor Wallace]].
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:He is undergoing this in the beginning of Volume 6, but it reaches a critical point when he's in the woods on his wilderness sabbatical with Kim and he encounters Nega-Scott. When Kim tries to get him to accept Nega-Scott, Scott shouts out it's better than living with himself, implying he is aware of his mistakes, but afraid of owning up to them (or ''not even know how to'') and a possible self-loathing. Some have taken this as proof of the AmbiguousDisorder.]]
* ShonenHair: [[ArtEvolution Scott's hair gets spikier and more unkempt with each installment]].
* TheSlacker: He's unemployed and is reliant on Wallace when the book starts out.
* TheFinalTemptation: Has his in the middle of Volume Six, during his wilderness sabbatical. [[spoiler: Staying with Kim Pine, he impulsively kisses her while confessing that she has been one of the few constants in his life. The temptation comes in the potential return to some form of stability given their past relationship and how both know how each other work. Kim convinces him not to and to fight for Ramona and in turn, fight to change. Notable because it's just as big a temptation if not more so for Kim.]]
* TheTeetotaler: He refuses to drink, to the point where [[OocIsSeriousBusiness it's treated like a big deal when he does]]. This is done to further his ManChild image rather than show any moral upstandingness. We're never given a reason for this however.
** He does ends up drunk at a New Years party back in college where [[spoiler: he was with Envy and had the fight that led to their break-up (the details of which were never given.) Scott doesn't remember what happened that night or that he even drank, since he himself mentioned then he didn't drink. It's possible he doesn't remember what hapepned because of the alcohol and may have inadvertably consumed it.]]
* TetrisEffect: [[spoiler:Gideon's plot had a phase of messing around Scott's memories and the result in the high school memories would almost be a good example of this, but with his usual video games instead of Tetris.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Garlic bread.
* UnreliableNarrator: [[spoiler:The validity of his flashbacks is highly questionable thanks to Gideon's altering of Scott's memories and to a lesser extent, Scott's repression of his memories.]] Granted, this is mainly with his relationship with Kim. Given Wallace's and Stacey's views on what happened with Envy, it's clear that his memories of the incident are alot more accurate.
* WhatTheHellHero:
-->'''Scott''': Are you okay now?\\
'''Envy''': Am I...? You just headbutted my best friend so hard he ''burst,'' Scott.
** [[DumbassHasAPoint Though Scott rightfully pointed out that Todd did cheat on her and flung her at a wall]].
** Scott gets another one with Envy in Volume 6. Becomes more apparent and embarrassing when he breaks it down in front of a thousand quiet fans staring at Envy in awe.
-->'''Scott''': Envy Adams? Partying with ''mere mortals''?\\
'''Envy''': *glare* \\
'''Scott''': Why don't you go back to... to... ''[[LameComeback Montrealhalla]]''.
* WouldntHitAGirl: "What? Is that like a moral high ground or something?" He has no such standard in the game, starting with directly attacking Matthew's Demon Hipster Chicks (all enemies before that point are men) and regularly fighting female mooks from there. [[spoiler:Towards the end of Volume 4 of the comic, he eventually comes to accept fighting Roxie, and manages to slice her with his newly-aquired Power of Love.]]

[[folder:Ramona Flowers]]
[[caption-width-right:350:'''Ramona Flowers'''[softreturn]Age: 25 years old[softreturn][[NinjaPirateZombieRobot American Delivery]] [[GratuitousNinja Ninja]]]]

The heroine of the story. An American who recently moved to Canada. A series of chance encounters leads to Scott asking her out on a date. She has a mysterious past which is slowly uncovered over the course of the series. She entered and ended a total of seven relationships, and not only did they all turn evil, but they formed a league together and now control her love life by fighting and killing off any potential suitor she starts dating.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Had a relationship with Roxanne, which she refers to as "a phase" and had some moments with Kim Pine, including a few while being with Scott at the same time.
* BagOfHolding: Ramona's purse, elaborately [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the fact that it [[HammerSpace contains]] a [[HyperspaceMallet hammer]] (+ 2 against girls), a titanium baseball bat (+ 1 against blondes), and even ''Scott himself''. "Capacity: unknown." [[spoiler:When it's destroyed during the fight against Gideon in Volume 6, thousand of objects come out from it.]] The bag's unlimited capacity is explained [[spoiler:because it's an access to the Subspace, which Scott later uses to get inside Ramona's mind and eliminate the fragment of Gideon inside it]].
* BatterUp: Her choice of weapons includes a baseball bat.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Near the end of volume 6, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Ramona spent her time away from Scott the exact same way he did - by moping, slacking, and sleeping all day. Scott's friends declare them a perfect couple.]] She also has many of the same flaws as Scott, albeit to a greater extent than him. She tends to overlook her own mistakes and blaming her failed love life on others. At the end of the series their friends agree it's less about them belonging together and more like they deserve each other.
* BoyishShortHair:
-->'''Scott:''' Have you seen a girl who has hair like *this*? (mimicks the shape of her haircut)
* CombatMedic: In the game, she's the only one who can heal all players at once by summoning [[AssistCharacter Knives]] (the assist move having Knives bring coffee for everyone). Kim can heal, but she can only heal herself.
* DeadpanSnarker: Snarks a lot at the ridiculous things that happen around her.
* DropTheHammer: Her choice of weapons includes a hammer.
* EvilCounterpart: While not completely evil, Envy has shades of this with Ramona, best seen in their interactions in book 3.
* ExperimentedInCollege: With Roxanne.
* FemmeFatale: Parodied. The fact that she used to smoke (and still does on certain occasions) makes Scott think that she is evil. Many of her exes accuse her of ruining their lives and drawing them to villainy, but they are just using her as an excuse for their actions.
* FragileSpeedster: Has the fastest initial movement speed in the game but slightly weaker attacks. The difference is marginal enough that it's barely noticeable, though.
* GenkiGirl: In the game, judging by how she runs and her victory pose when you beat an ex.
* GirlOfMyDreams: Parodied, but also deconstructed. Scott did not know her at all and seeing her constantly within his dreams (while she points out that he is dreaming and thus, giving herself away as not being part of the dream) ends up unsettling Scott, especially when he finally sees her face to face in the real world for the first time. While meant to be humorous, Scott's behavior is pretty relatable and understandable. Ramona reveals she's been appearing there mainly for her job and regarded Scott with indifference and annoyance. She does become embarassed when Scott confronts her before explaining how Subspace works.
* HotbloodedSideburns: She has them in one of her hairstyles, although she is not particularly HotBlooded.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Lampshaded a few times. She regularly gets angry at Scott for minor transgressions while she has either done or ''is doing'' '''worse.''' For example, she's a bit miffed at Scott for spending a platonic evening with Lisa, even though that same evening Ramona was hanging out (and making out a little) with one of her exes. She's angry when Scott goes inside her head, even though she regularly has fun teasing him when she goes inside his head. And she freaks out about Scott dating her before breaking things off with Knives, even though she cheated on all or nearly all of her exes.
* ImportantHaircut: Inverted example. Ramona tends to change her hair color often and keep it short. Her letting it grow out is a big OOC alert.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yes, while she committed her fair share of mistakes and is a bigger jerk than Scott ever was, she is still a good person who wants to become a better person and do so hand-in-hand with Scott.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: A DeconstructiveParody of one.
* MagicSkirt: Averted. Even when she wears ankle-length skirts she'll still get the occasional PantyShot.
* MsFanservice: Conspicuously so.
* MysteriousPast: She never goes into too much detail on what she did in America. While the readers do learn of her relationships with her exes, other parts of her past remain a mystery.
* NeverMyFault: Tying in with her Hypocrisy, she is a more clear cut example of this than Scott. Ramona doesn't accept her part in her actions and blames her exes for the problems (not that she is incorrect in some aspects), but she doesn't ever point it at herself. Compare this to Scott who has never blamed anyone for what happened in terms of relationships falling-out (however, this includes himself, exlaining why he makes the same mistakes, if in different circumstances.)
* NotSoAboveItAll: She seems to be more mature than Scott at first glance, but she has just as much potential to be lazy and unproductive, spending her days off sleeping and moping. In regards to relationship problems, she is ''worse'' than Scott, as while Scott's problems were the result of not thinking things through, he has no malicious intent behind them. The same cannot be said for Ramona, who cheated on a good deal of her exes (the Twins being a big example.) This is such a large aspect of her character that she's even become [[Wiki/TVTropes Pantheon deified for this on TVTropes.]]
* PhlebotinumRebel: [[spoiler: Her teleportation powers come from Gideon experimenting "the Glow" on her, something that uses the Subspace to trap someone in the emotions of their head. She found a way use it to access the Subspace without the need of the Subspace's doors.]]
* PortalNetwork: Convenient for [[MundaneUtility an Amazon.ca employee]].
* ReallyGetsAround: Apparently got a reputation of this when she was younger.
* RollerbladeGood: Her preferred method of transportation.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: Ramona and Roxanne, her college roommate in the past.
* ShesGotLegs: Best seen in the beginning of Volume 4, when her and Scott are sitting on the bench, she puts her legs on top of Scott's lap.
* StockingFiller: In subspace.
%%* StrawHypocrite
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She is cold at first glance, but once Scott gets to know her, it becomes apparent that she's actually a pretty decent person who has made her fair share of mistakes.
* TookALevelInJerkAss: In Volume 4; she becomes more hostile to Scott. Lampshaded and she apologizes for it after Scott defeats Roxie.
* TraumaticHaircut: Before [[spoiler: leaving Scott]] at the end of volume 5.
* VagueAge: At first. It's [[spoiler: 24]].
* VisualPun: Her BagOfHolding. At the end of volume 6, Gideon destroys it and all her baggage spills all over the floor. She decides not to bother picking it up.
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: Ramona's cat is named Gideon,[[spoiler: which everyone, even Gideon, expresses surprise over. Ramona quickly reveals it to be a coping mechanism, but still gives her weird looks]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: And red, and green, and purple...
* YouAreFat: Gets this constantly from [[spoiler: Knives, when she goes ballistic for Scott's sake]], and even [[spoiler: Roxanne]] states that she put on a little weight since college. This is all debatable, but she definitely is curvier than the rest of the main female cast.
* YourCheatingHeart: She did this alot more than Scott ever did and technically did make out with Roxie while still with Scott.

[[folder:Kimberly "Kim" Pine]]
[[caption-width-right:282:'''Kim Pine'''[softreturn]Age: 24 years old[softreturn][[LittleMissSnarker Will eat your soul]]]]

Drummer of the band Sex Bob-omb. An ex-girlfriend of Scott's, and his close friend since their high school days. She is usually the lone voice of reason in all the madness going around her. Since said voice of reason usually gets ignored, it doesn't matter all that much.

Years before Scott Pilgrim was created, Bryan Lee O'Malley used the name "Kim Pine" for a very different (or at least much less defined) character in his short-lived comic strip "Style".
* AdaptationalBadass: A non-combatant in the books, but just as tough as Scott and Ramona in the game and the only one with a projective attack out of the core cast of playable characters.
* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Although less wild than most examples and more [[GrumpyBear vicious]].
* AmicableExes: Though she wants people to forget she dated him in high school, she's one of Scott's closest friends. It's probably aided by the fact Kim still [[JustForPun pines]] for him.
* AssKicksYou: In the game.
* BackForTheFinale: Returns to the city in the last moments of the story, after Scott defeated Gideon.
* BiTheWay: Made out with Knives while drunk, and also showed interest in Ramona. [[RelationshipUpgrade Upgraded]] in the games, where she calls in Knives for a kiss as a ''move''.
* ADayInTheLimelight: [[https://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2412289.html O'Malley made a short comic about Kim once.]]
* DistressedDamsel: Kim is found captured by evil-doers twice. They are keeping her trapped, in shackles or otherwise, and waiting for a contender to show up. [[spoiler:Although the first time she may not have been captured at all, considering she was dating the guy. The kidnapping incident was due to Gideon tampering with Scott's memories for kicks.]] Given the constant references to video games, it is natural that Scott Pilgrim has to SaveThePrincess.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Her stage outfit in Book 3.
* FormerlyFat: Downplayed and not drawn attention to, but she was noticeably pudgier when she dated Scott back in high school.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: While she doesn't hit him, it's her words that finally get Scott to come to terms with himself in Vol 6.
* GrumpyBear: She is very grouchy, but she turns out to be a decent person.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Thinks it's creepy that Scott is dating 17-year-old Knives Chau (despite Canada's age of consent being 16). [[spoiler: She ends up making out with Knives in Vol 4 when they're both drunk.]]
* InformedFlaw: She's apparently less attractive than Ramona and Envy, though GenericCuteness hides this. She does dress quite a bit more plainly than most of the female cast, which lessens this to a small degree.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: She's '''strongly''' implied to still be in love with Scott, especially since [[spoiler: he never told her he was moving while they were still dating]]. [[spoiler: In volume 6, when Scott kisses her, she ''actually goes along with it'' before she breaks it off and tells him to fight for Ramona, since that's who he loves]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Snarky though she may be, she is a very good friend to Scott, using a combination of patience and BrutalHonesty to help him come to terms with his own flaws.
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: With Knives at the beginning of Volume 4.
* MotivationalLie: Cleverly uses one to raise Scott's morale when he's fighting the twins. Just after the twins have tried to break Scott mentally by telling him what a liar, cheater, and hypocrite Ramona is, (weakening Scott's will and ability to fight) Kim's phone beeps because it's low on power. Kim tells Scott the beeping was actually her getting a call from Ramona, and furthermore says that Ramona is cheering for Scott and wants to patch things up. With his confidence restored, Scott ''thrashes'' the twins.
* PutOnABus: Literally during the fifth volume when she went to the her parents home. She also absent during the battle against Gideon.
* TheReliableOne: While ''everyone'' is reliable compared to Scott to some (if limited) extent, she is one that stands out in particular because of how long they known each other and Kim's loyalty to Scott. Scott even says as much at one point, saying that she's the one who's always there for him. It's also the reason why the Twins kidnapped her, as she is one of the people Scott is closest to.
* SlasherSmile: In the game. Give Kim Pine a weapon. Look at how her facial expression (normally bored) changes when she uses it. She has this same expression when stomping a fallen enemy.
* SpitTake: In the game, one of her moves involves spitting out something that resembles heavily condensed pure negativity.
* TheFinalTemptation: Kim gets a more subtle one yet more impactful one in Book 6 [[spoiler: Scott ends up staying with her during his wilderness sabbatical (since her folks have a cabin in the woods), he impulsively kisses her while confessing that she has been one of the few constants in his life. Kim actually indulges in the kiss before she pulled away and told him to fight for Ramona. Her indulgence showed that she was quite tempted to go back together with him since she still held strong feelings for him. Yet she knew it'd be better if he fought for Ramona. It does lead her to having a more relaxed friendship with Scott since the leftover tension seems to have been mostly resolved.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Toward Scott, due to their past relationship (though she also seems to be this back when they were dating.)
* TsurimeEyes: She has these.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Scott. [[spoiler:Which seems to be mostly resolved in volume six.]]
* WhiteMagicianGirl: In the game. Does she have a staff? No, but she substitutes it with ''drumsticks''. She can also heal best and she is one of the only two characters who have a projectile move.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Her and Scott.

[[folder:Stephen Stills]]
[[caption-width-right:270:'''Stephen Stills'''[softreturn]Age: 24 years old[softreturn][[TheGift The Talent]]]]

Lead vocalist/guitarist and "the talent" of Sex Bob-Omb, and another close friend of Scott's going back to their college days, to where they were dormmates. He works as a cook at a stir-fry restaurant and is Julie Powers' on-again-off-again boyfriend.
* AdaptationalBadass: A NonActionGuy in the books, a MightyGlacier who can take down all seven of the Evil Exes in the games.
* AlliterativeName: His first and last name both begin with the same sound.
* BeardOfSorrow: Not necessarily a beard, but PermaStubble. Also, his only known girlfriend [[spoiler: and boyfriend]] is Julie [[spoiler: and Joseph]]. The author even labelled him as [[http://radiomaru.tumblr.com/post/45716551608/is-it-a-coincidence-that-stephen-stills-dates-2/ kind of emo]].
* BetaCouple: First with Julie, then with [[spoiler: Kim's gay former roommate Joseph.]]
* ComingOutStory: [[spoiler:At the end of book 6; he says he came out of the closet in volume 5.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Though he tends to emphasize the deadpan over the snark.
* FullNameBasis: Scott usually refers to him as "Stephen Stills" despite being friends with him since college.
* HasAType: Unfortunately, a bad one; he's drawn to vitriolic jerks. First off, we have Julie, who is well [[AlphaBitch Julie.]] [[spoiler: Then we have Joseph, who is ''worse'' than Julie.]] According to a comment made by the author above, it's not a coincidence and may be tied to his moody behavior.
* HenpeckedHusband: Non-married example. He's been dating Julie on and off for years, and their relationship generally consists of her yelling at him while he stoically says "Yeah.". [[spoiler: Even after he comes out, he starts dating Joseph, who is perhaps the only character ''even more'' controlling and chiding than Julie.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: While he's one of Scott's closest friends, he's only tangentially aware of his feud with the Seven Evil Exes and makes no attempts at helping him fight them. Instead, he's much more preoccupied with advancing Sex Bob-omb's career, which Scott, despite being a member of the band, is only tangentially aware of.
* MightyGlacier: In the video games, he has the slowest initial movement speed, but hits slightly harder than the other characters.
* MoodSwinger: Almost always incredibly chill about everything, but becomes a nervous, paranoid wreck whenever he's about to perform on stage.
* NoAccountingForTaste: Stephen Stills and Julie have a pretty vitriolic relationship. By book five, they've broken up "for like the fiftieth time!" [[spoiler:Stephen Stills continues to be an example of this even after he comes out as gay--his new boyfriend Joseph is, if possible, even more bitchy than Julie.]]
* NotSoStoic: One of Stephen's defining traits is how laid-back he is for the most part, but this is punctuated by his various anxiety attacks throughout the series.
* OutOfFocus: Not around much at all in book 5, as he's busy finishing editing Sex Bob-omb's album with Joseph. Conveniently, [[spoiler: this allows the reveal that the two are dating to be held off until the final book.]]
* {{Shoryuken}}: Can pull one off in the game.
* TheStoic: He's an incredibly chill dude most of the time.
* StraightGay: [[spoiler: He really doesn't reveal anything about his homosexuality when it comes to be his behavior.]]
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: His moves have a distinct wrestler theme to them.
* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler:His relationship with (or at least interest ''in'') Joseph seems to have started during Volume 4, at a time when he and Julie were still "on."]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: In the second volume, he is revealed to be 22 whereas Scott is 23. In the fourth volume, his 24th birthday happens before Scott's 24th birthday happens... [[spoiler: Though whether this is a result of the story is told in [[UnreliableNarrator Scott's point of view]] or O'Malley making a mistake isn't known.]]

[[folder:Wallace Wells]]
[[caption-width-right:270:'''Wallace Wells'''[softreturn]Age: 26 years old[softreturn][[StraightGay Pretty Darn Gay]]]]

Scott's cool gay roommate. Very snarky and blunt, but usually has Scott's best interests at heart. He serves as MissionControl (or something close to it) for Scott's fight against the League of Evil Exes. Bryan Lee O'Malley claims that Wallace is based on a former real-life roommate of his.
* TheAlcoholic: He doesn't appear to be a full-blown alcoholic, but he has very few appearances in the comics where he isn't at least mildly buzzed.
* AllGaysArePromiscuous: "I didn't make up the gay rulebook."
* AlliterativeName: His first and last names start with the same sound.
* BarrierMaiden: Male version. He actually manages to ''tank'' for Ramona during the fight with Envy. '''Because Envy can't hit her as long as Wallace is giving her moral support.''' Wallace being Wallace, he doesn't seem to notice this at all and leaves to use the bathroom just when Ramona's about to win.
* BerserkButton: Wallace is usually very laid back, but anything related to Envy Adams sets him off. Considering it's one of the few times we see him genuinely mad, it's quite telling. Especially since his reason is because of how bad she hurt Scott.
* BirdsOfAFeather: He bonds with Ramona over their mutual hatred of Envy Adams.
* BreakoutCharacter: He became the fan favorite immediately.
* CaptainObvious: Wallace is actually helpful most of the time, but once a fight actually starts..."Scott, watch out! I think that guy might be Gideon!"
-->"[[UnwantedAssistance OKAY, THANK YOU WALLACE!]]"
* TheCharmer: Extremely talented at making a good first impression. His entire friendship with Scott basically only happened because Scott's parents found him so charming that they kept inviting him over to their house.
* ClosetKey: Sorta. He makes out with and steals Stacey Pilgrim's date in the first volume. Its implied this isn't the first time it has happened.
* CynicalMentor: A humorous example to Scott.
* DeadpanSnarker: But tends to lose the "deadpan" part when drunk.
* EthicalSlut: Not that he ever explains this to Scott, but there's an enormous difference between how Scott is dating Knives and Ramona without telling either, and how Wallace is sleeping with two men at the same time.
* {{Fetish}}: Wallace has a ''big'' fetish for [[SexySpectacles guys wearing]] [[{{Megane}} glasses]].
* TheGadfly: He seems to live for screwing around with Scott. This extends to other characters when he gets to speak with them.
-->"You're my bitch forever, Scott!"
* HiddenDepths: He is repeatedly shown to have an extensive life outside of Scott that we only catch glimpses of, having his own group of friends and a white collar day job that appears to be the only "adult" job of the cast. He's also shown to be surprisingly serious and task-oriented the few times Scott interrupts him while he's at work (somewhat subverted in the movie as he's playing a game while talking to Scott, but he could've been on his break).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He loves to screw with Scott and can be a catty bitch pretty frequently, but he's a loyal and reliable friend who always has Scott's back in the end.
* MrFanservice: He's a well-dressed, handsome and witty guy who likes to walk around his apartment without any pants on.
* MightyGlacier: His moveset is a duplicate of Stephen Stills' in the video game.
* MundaneUtility: His psychic boyfriend Mobile teaches him how to manipulate the chi flow through his body. Wallace only ever uses it to dry himself off without using a towel when he gets wet. When Scott asks him to teach him to use chi to help him fight on more equal ground against psychic vegan Todd Ingram, he bluntly refuses simply because it sounds like too much work.
* NonActionSnarker: He never fights (outside of the game's second DLC) and can snark with the best of them.
* OlderSidekick: Two years Scott's senior but plays one of the most active support roles in fighting the Evil Exes out of Scott's entire friend group.
* PlatonicLifePartners: Wallace has let Scott live with him for years, and the two are close enough that Scott generally goes to Wallace as a mentor and confidant during difficult times in his life, but their relationship is entirely platonic.
* PromotedToPlayable: Like Knives, he's getting his own DLC. Amazingly, two whole years after the game was released.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Scott's red, though he gets quite wild when drunk.
* TheReliableOne: The other main one for Scott. He has a good deal of faith in Scott and it doesn't waver. He's the one who helps Scott navigate through his problems and tends to be upfront with him.
* SatelliteCharacter: To Scott at first. He is shown to lead a life outside of Scott and has no real connection with the rest of Sex Bob-omb. This is steadily removed over time as he becomes buddies with Ramona by Volume 3 and we learn about his past connection with Envy Adams.
* SharpDressedMan: He's a very crisp dresser, and there's a minor running gag of pointing out how much nicer his things are than Scott's are.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Scott and Ramona.
* SitcomArchNemesis: With Envy Adams. In a world where most conflicts are dealt with in large scale Animesque battles, they limit their rivalry to petty name calling. However, it's also one of the few times we see Wallace ''genuinely pissed off''; it's clear he holds a great deal of contempt toward Envy for how she hurt Scott in the past.
* StraightGay: Though he's ''very'' capable of acting CampGay when he wants to.
* TheStrategist: He helps Scott train for fights by researching his opponents and giving him tips for exploiting their weaknesses. It's pretty effective most of the time, but some of the time he says stupid things just to annoy Scott.
* SuddenNameChange: His name was Wallace Weldon in the first book.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's a tall and handsome fellow with plenty of snark to spare.
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: He and Scott first met during a college lecture, where he randomly started asking Scott a series of questions and then followed him home. While Scott was more or less completely confused and uncomfortable with him the entire time, Wallace's charm won Scott's parents over, allowing him to regularly come over to his house to hang out whether Scott wanted him to or not.
* TokenAdult: A weird case. Almost ''everybody'' is an adult, Scott included, but Wallace is the only one who seems to have fully grown up and entered the adult world, holding down a steady white collar job and having little to no emotional baggage. Naturally, he's a sort of mentor figure to both Scott and Ramona.
* UndyingLoyalty: A bit hidden under his cattiness, but Wallace is the one of the only characters who consistently shows unwavering trust and belief in Scott. This becomes most apparent when [[spoiler: Scott dies in book 6, where Wallace, out of all of Scott's friends and acquaintances, looks the most horrified.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: He pretty much constantly switches between mocking Scott about every aspect of his life and being his most loyal, helpful and understanding friend.
* WhatExactlyIsHisJob: It appears to be some sort of IT or customer service job in a cubicle, but we're never actually told what it is.

[[folder:Knives Chau]]
[[caption-width-right:310:'''Knives Chau'''[softreturn]Age: 17 years old[softreturn][[StalkerWithACrush Self-proclaimed Scottaholic]]]]

A 17-year-old-girl who Scott dated on a whim at the start of the series to ease his loneliness. She becomes obsessed with him and assimilates herself into his circle of friends. She ends up sticking around, even after Scott breaks up with her to date Ramona. Oh yeah, and she's a ninja and so is her father.
* AssistCharacter: In the game.
* BiTheWay: [[spoiler: Seemingly promoted to this in the game, where she and Kim kiss frequently and end up together in Kim's ending, much to the confusion of Scott and Stephen Stills.]]
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler: She ends up leaving for university at the end of Book 6]].
* ButtMonkey: She gets tossed around constantly during fights, and Scott cheating on her with Ramona is one of the most important parts of the story early on. In general, most of the time she appears is devoted to making her look fairly pathetic.
* CharacterDevelopment: Becomes more mature and savvy as the books go on, to the point of [[spoiler: rejecting Scott's offer when he attempts to hook up with her on her 18th birthday in a moment of weakness. She does comfort him when he recovers from that mini-breakdown and confesses to feeling flattered. They settle on kissing, but both however are grossly weirded out by it though.]] Considering her almost crazed obsession with Scott for most of the series, this shows serious growth.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Hoo boy. After Scott breaks up with her, she continues to stalk him and attacks Ramona.
* DualWielding: Her WeaponOfChoice is a set of two ... knives.
* {{Expy}}: According to [[WordOfGod O'Malley]], of [[Literature/HarryPotter Cho Chang]]. They are both Asian characters who go out with the main character but aren't part of the OfficialCouple in the end.
* FirstLove: Scott was her first love and despite her moving on, still cares deeply about him and holds him in higher regard than most of their friends do.
* GenkiGirl: She's certainly a cheery and energetic girl.
* TheGlomp: Every time she sees Scott.
* ImportantHaircut: She dyes her hair when Scott breaks up with her, [[MyHairCameOutGreen which turns out bright red in the comics]].
* JailBait: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted despite common misconception.]] While Scott's relationship with Knives is mocked because of Knives' age and both [[OnlySaneMan Kim and Wallace]] point out some problems, it is not actually applicable. The legal age of consent in Canada is ''16'' (previously 14 until 2006) so Scott's relationship with Knives would not land him in any trouble. This makes it confusing as to why Scott's friends would bring it up at all to begin with. While the only ones who do are Kim and Wallace, Kim [[spoiler: ends up ''drunkenly making out'' with Knives]] while Wallace's reasons are different.
* {{Jobber}}: Despite legitimately having ninja abilities, Knives almost always gets knocked around rather pathetically during her fights and never so much as lands a real hit on her opponent. [[JustifiedTrope Though this could because she's still relatively inexperienced and the youngest of the cast.]]
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: [[spoiler: With Kim.]]
* KlatchianCoffee: She delivers this in the game as part of Ramona's assist. It serves to heal all members of the party.
* KnifeNut: Her weapon of choice, she's named after them after all.
* LittleMissBadass: She's young and small, but is a damn good fighter.
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: "You'll always be my Clash at Demonhead."
-->(Whatever that means.)
* MurderTheHypotenuse: She eventually attempts to kill Ramona.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "What kind of idiot would knowingly date a girl named Knives?"
* {{Ninja}}: [[AllAsiansKnowMartialArts Even though she's Chinese.]]
* NoNameGiven: Her real first name is never revealed. (Unless that ''is'' her real first name, of course.)
* PromotedToLoveInterest: To [[spoiler:Kim Pine]] in the game. And to Scott in the film, where she's portrayed as a more serious love interest.
* PromotedToPlayable: Has her own DLC.
* RunningGag: "Knives Chau: 17 years old."
* SkintoneSclerae: She's drawn this way and this appears to be how O'Mally draws characters of Asian descent in general (or at least in ''Scott Pilgrim.'')
* SmittenTeenageGirl: Very much infatuated with Scott Pilgrim.
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Scott after being dumped.
* StormOfBlades: In the game when Stills summons her.
* TokenMinority: The only non-white member of the main cast. Her best friend and family and three of the evil exes are also minorities, but have limited screen time.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: She becomes convinced that Ramona is a threat to Scott and attacks her.
* WaifFu: Her small size does not diminish her ability to kick ass.
* {{Yandere}}: After Scott breaks up with her, she... doesn't tke it well.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Her ninja costume.

[[folder:(Young) Neil Nordegraf]]
[[caption-width-right:300:'''Young Neil'''[softreturn][[OlderThanTheyLook Age: Not really young]][softreturn]Stephen's Roommate]]

Stephen Stills' roommate and Sex Bob-omb's #1 (and only) fan/roadie. He's very quiet and is mostly an observer/commentator on the events of the story. After Scott dumps her, Knives briefly dates Neil because he looks similar to Scott, but they later break up.
* AccidentalMisnaming: He never objected much to it, but when he is introduced simply as Neil, with the "young" part dropped, it's the best day of his life.
* AlliterativeName: His full name is Neil Nordegraf.
* ButtMonkey: His friends don't really pay much attention to him and Knives only dates him to get back a Scott.
* {{Deconstruction}}: Of a SatelliteCharacter and MauveShirt. He doesn't have much involvement in the story and his connection to his friends started out as being their bandmate's younger brother and later Stephen's roommate. As his friends become progressively more entangled into the plot, he feels more and more left out and begins to act out accordingly.
* DemotedToExtra: Slowly begins to fall into the background with each volume, [[spoiler:though he regains a bit of prominence when Scott finally takes the "Young" out of his name.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: After several volumes of getting ignored by his friends he starts to become a {{Jerkass}} in retaliation.
* TheGenericGuy: He doesn't have much of a personality besides liking Sex Bob-omb and looking like Scott.
* MauveShirt: He's at least as prominent as anyone else connected to Sex Bob-omb in the film.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Volume 6: The greatest day of Young Neil's life was when Scott simply called him "Neil".
* OnlySixFaces: He looks ''very'' similar to Scott, which is [[LampshadeHanging the only reason Knives goes out with him]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Supposed to be 20, but looks about as young as Knives.
* TheQuietOne: He doesn't say very much.
* TheRoadie: For "Sex Bob-Omb."
* ReplacementGoldfish: Knives throws herself at him on the rebound from Scott because he looks more-or-less just like him. They break up rather quickly since he's not much like Scott in personality.
* SatelliteCharacter: He's Sex Bob-omb's fanboy and that's about it. Notably, he is friends with the band because his sister was a friend of theirs in college, making him one in universe as well. It starts to really bug him.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the later volumes, once his college work and Sex Bob-Ombs relocation to Joseph's "studio" for recording prevents him from hearing them perform. It's also implied to be a result of them hanging out less and feeling isolated as a result.

[[folder:Envy Adams]]
[[caption-width-right:298:'''Natalie V. Adams'''[softreturn][[VagueAge Age: 24 years old?]][softreturn][[RapunzelHair Hair: Extra Large]]]]

The famous lead singer of the rising band, The Clash at Demonhead. She is also Scott's old girlfriend from their college days. They were in a band together, they broke up, she joined a new band, she got famous, Scott didn't. She's currently dating her bassist, Todd Ingram.
* AlphaBitch: For a while, but [[HeelFaceTurn she gets better]].
* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleofAntiVillains Type I]].
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: She stops in her tracks while she's walking away and Scott calls her [[ThatManIsDead Natalie]].
* BreakTheHaughty: Went along with Todd to meet up with Scott just to show off her success and kinda watch Scott squirm. She is considered a bitch by quite a few people (especially Ramona and Wallace.) Then things come crashing down when she discovers that her VictoriousChildhoodFriend and Ramona's 3rd ex Todd was cheating on her with the drummer Lynnette, resulting in the band being dissolved. By the end of the third book, her band is gone and she just has the clothes on her back (one being an old hoodie of Scott's).
* TheChanteuse: Some of her costumes invoke this trope.
* CombatStilettos: Combat platform boots in her fight for Ramona. Despite her many outfit changes she is never seen in flat shoes in the series.
* CostumePorn: She wears a variety of elaborate costumes. [[spoiler:Gideon mentions that he gets sexual pleasure from dressing her up in them.]]
* DoNotCallMePaul: She is not happy when Scott calls her Natalie.
* EmpathicEnvironment: It was raining the whole time she was in Toronto and in the game, after she loses, she melts away from a [[PersonalRaincloud raincloud]].
* EvilCounterpart: Envy UsedToBeASweetKid until she signed with a major label. While Scott is ObliviouslyEvil, Envy TookALevelInJerkass.
* EvilDiva: At first.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Well, Knives does.
* FemmeFatale: Plays up the image, but is not really one.
* FingerpokeOfDoom: The back of her knees. Don't ask how [[{{Fetish}} Scott knows this.]]
* HannibalLecture: She gives one to Ramona about how they are NotSoDifferent.
* HeelFaceTurn: CLOSURE! [[spoiler: Also, earlier on she warns Scott that Gideon's going to attack from behind via her opening song.]]
* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: The stage outfit Gideon puts her in. It's one PimpedOutDress ''over another''.
* IronicEcho: "Shut the (bleep) up, Julie".
* {{Jerkass}}: Kinda starts out as one given most of the cast's dislike of her. It's telling that she's a BerserkButton for the otherwise laid-back Wallace, namely because of her hurting Scott
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler: She does end up becoming less of a jerk. At the end of Volume 6, she hugs Scott while bringing both a sense of closure. And then says "PS. Get off my stage." Beforehand, her song also served to warn Scott of Gideon's sneak attack and she's as shocked and horrified as the others when Gideon kills him.]]
* KickChick:
** Her preferred style during her fight with Ramona at Lee's Palace.
** All her major attacks in the game involve high jump kicks.
* LeanAndMean: It's interesting to note that Envy is probably the skinniest character in the series. The way other female characters are drawn would suggest O'Malley has an appreciation for girls with healthy curves and even petite ones like Knives still have very soft, rounded facial features in sharp contrast to Envy's narrow, vulpine looks.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Even though Envy was the one who dumped Scott, she still continues to send him mixed signals and seems to be envious of his relationship with Ramona. Possibly justified though since [[spoiler: their breakup is told from Scott's perspective.]] However, given we see Wallace's thoughts on her, it's implied that she is legitimately doing this just to rub salt in Scott's wounds. Reinforced given how her infobox mentioned that she was dragging on the eventual fight of Scott and Todd.
* NewOldFlame: Subverted. She and Scott never get back together.
* NobleDemon:
** Subverted. In Volume 3, she allows Scott to walk away when he attacks Todd without knowing about his powers, but that's more because she wanted to draw Scott's suffering out.
** Played straight in Volume 6, she warns Scott of a sneak attack by Gideon.
* PeekABangs: Some of her hairstyles.
* PersonalRaincloud: In the game [[GrayRainOfDepression after she loses]] and after Todd was destroyed in the comic.
* RainRainGoAway: Right after she left in the 3rd book, the rain left as well.
* RichBitch: Her muscial career has been good to her financially. Same can't be said for her attitude.
* ShesGotLegs: She has very nice long legs, which she is very good at kicking with.
* StartOfDarkness: Downplayed example. Envy's play out through flashbacks in Vol. 3. It begins with her selling all her {{Anime}} paraphernalia and culminates with her asking Scott to start calling her "Envy" rather than Natalie. Things escalate with Envy becoming colder and more distant in her relationship with Scott, her taking over his band and leading it into an undesirable direction. It's even hinted that she might;ve started to cheat on him. Eventually, she breaks up with him and the band falls apart, showing the reader the exact moment she crossed the line that she'd been living on the other side of since she first appeared in the comic. However, [[spoiler: the actual break-up resulted from Scott ending up drunk at the party and in his uninhibited state, started a big fight with her, which led to her breaking things off with him. He has no recollection of the fight and was only told about it by Stephen in a flashback (in Scott's defense, he ''was'' drunk.)]]
* ThatManIsDead: Natalie is dead and [[spoiler:remains so even after Envy's HeelFaceTurn, but Envy is happy that Scott is around to keep her memory alive]].
* TsurimeEyes: She has these. Serves to highlight her "sharpness" and vulpine features compared to the softer aspects of the other girls.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Her legions of fans are oblivious to how much of a bitch she can be.
* WomanScorned: How she ends up feeling after the fallout of her relationship with Scott, despite the decline being pretty much her own fault.
* YourCheatingHeart: It's never actually confirmed if she was cheating on Scott, though Scott did suspect it enough to ask her if she was one night after they got a messege from a guy Scott didn't know. She doesn't actually give him an answer when he asks her this, leaving the situation ambigious.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!!The League of Evil Exes

[[folder:Matthew Patel]]
[[caption-width-right:240:'''Matthew Patel'''[softreturn]Ramona's 1st Evil Ex-Boyfriend[softreturn][[EvilSorcerer Powers: Mystical]]]]

The first of Ramona's Evil Exes. He went to middle school with Ramona and was the only non-white, non-jock boy her age there. They teamed up and took over the school for a few weeks, and then she left him. He apparently never got over it. Also has mystical powers.
* CampStraight: Some of his mannerisms resemble gay stereotypes, but he's been pining after Ramona for most of his life.
* DanceBattler: Type four (completely nuts).
* EvilSorcerer: He fights with mystical powers.
* FlunkyBoss: Summons [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Demon Hipster]] [[CuteMonsterGirl Chicks]] to the fray.
* HairTriggerTemper: It doesn't take much for him to snap.
* LargeHam: He is '''MATTHEW PATEL!''', Ramona's '''FIRST'''... Evil... Ex... boyfriend.
-->''If you wa-a-a-ant to ''fight'' me... ''Ha!'' You're not the bri-i-i-ightest-'''ah!'''''
* MusicalEpisode: His fight with Scott is either a ShoutOut to Bollywood dance numbers or ''VideoGame/SpaceChannel5''. His song in the game could be considered both. That or a Bollywood Chiptune number at the very least. Either way, it's awesome.
* PeekABangs: He has these.
* {{Pirate}}: [[FashionVictimVillain They're in this year.]]
* PlayingWithFire: He uses fireballs.
* PsychopathicManchild: It seems that he hasn't matured since middle school.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Precisely why Scott Pilgrim ignores his "threatening" emails.
* SquishyWizard: He can shoot fireballs and summon a hoard of demon hipster chicks, but is heavily outclassed by Scott in a fight and goes down quickly once they go head to head.
* StarterVillain: He's the most pathetic and least threatening of the exes. Perfect for the first "boss fight."
* SummonBackupDancers: His Demon Hipster Chicks.
* ThisCannotBe
-->''This is impossible! How can this be?''
-->Scott: ''Open your eyes, and maybe you'll see!''
* TokenMinority: As the "only non-white, non-jock" in Ramona's middle school, this trope was the only reason she truly bothered with him in the first place. It's also the primary basis for his "mystical powers," according to Ramona herself. [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Once they overpowered everyone else in their middle school...]]
* WarmUpBoss: WordOfGod claims he was supposed to be rather pathetic, what with his letters and his one sided fight with Scott. Not to mention when he bursts into coins, the resulting pocket change isn't even enough for the bus ride home. Probably related to the SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness.

[[folder:Lucas Lee]]
[[caption-width-right:260:'''Lucas Lee'''[softreturn]Ramona's 2nd Evil Ex-Boyfriend[softreturn][[TokenGoodTeammate Not really evil]]]]

The second Evil Ex. A former pro skate-boarder turned actor. He's in Toronto in Vol 2 to shoot a movie, so he invites Scott down to the set just to kick his ass. Despite being out to kill Scott, he's actually quite a decent guy.
* AccidentalMisnaming: Scott keeps getting him and Luke Wilson mixed up. Even ''after'' Lucas bites it, he still mistakes Luke Wilson as Lucas Lee.
* AlliterativeName: His first and last name start with the same sound.
* AntiVillain: He's actually a fairly friendly guy when he's not trying to control his ex's love life. He even offers to let Scott go in exchange for a bribe.
* BadassNormal: Unless you count being famous as a power. Taken even further in the books, where he only fights Scott with punches and a skate board and still has an easy time with him for most of the fight.
* BerserkButton: The gloves come off when Scott calls him a sellout.
* TheBrute: He appears to be the physically strongest of the exes, taking Scott out in a single punch that sends him flying.
* EvilCounterpart: To Knives, in a sense, both being fairly lame high-schoolers whom their partners cheated on with a much cooler replacement. Wallace and Kim note the similarity.
* FriendlyEnemy: To Scott. He is a genuinely nice guy and engages in small talk with the group. Apparently it's because being an ex of Ramona makes him an obligatory member of the League.
* FlunkyBoss: In the game, he brings skateboarders into the fray. Specifically so that you can knock them off their boards, allowing him to equip one and become more powerful. In the film, he calls out stunt doubles while he goes to get a cup of coffee.
* JerkJock: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the comic. Despite being an "Evil Ex" he's ironically more of FriendlyEnemy. Played ''more or less'' straight in the movie.
* {{Jobber}}: Offers his defeat in exchange for loose change.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Lucas Lee is [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005134/ Jason Lee]].
* PunchClockVillain: Lucas Lee is a genuinely nice guy, engages in small talk with the group and even offers Scott some baby carrots and Ritz. Right after throwing him into Casa Loma's tallest tower.[[note]]He's actually considered evil because he's [[FelonyMisdemeanor a sellout]].[[/note]]
* SelfDisposingVillain: Kills himself taking up a dare to grind a rather gnarly railing.
* ShesAllGrownUp: He was a dweeby skate rat as a teen who Ramona immediately ditched after laying eyes on Todd. Now he's an A-list celebrity who is attractive, down to earth and freakishly strong. Subverted to a degree in that Ramona still has no interest in him and he has more or less moved on from her.
* SuperStrength: Throws Scott five stories straight up into the top of a tower, which is demolished.
* TokenGoodTeammate: In the comics, and the film to a lesser extent. He's the only Ex who really seems to have gotten over Ramona and moved on with his life. Being part of the League is just a requirement for guys who dated Ramona.
* WakeUpCallBoss:
** In the game. He has much more health and does more damage to the players with each hit than Matthew Patel, and summons skateboarders who are fast, also do a pretty large amount of damage, block more frequently, and will pick up skateboards (or other weapons) and use reach. Lee himself has a nasty combo attack once he has a skateboard that hits three times. In addition, any time the player is knocked prone there is a good chance anyone on a skateboard will run them over for more damage. However, all of these factors can be mitigated or avoided by players with a better idea of Lee's boss pattern or who have come in with inflated levels.
** He's also this in the comics, although to a far lesser extent. After Scott easily took care of Matthew Patel, during which it was mentioned that Scott is the best fighter in the province, you might think that Scott will be able to take the entire League with just his own fighting ability. Lucas Lee shows that not only are the other members of the League a bigger threat than Matthew, but that Scott's fighting ability alone won't carry him through his encounters with them.

[[folder:Todd Ingram]]
[[caption-width-right:190:'''Todd Ingram'''[softreturn]Ramona's 3rd Evil Ex-Boyfriend[softreturn][[WouldHitAGirl Status: Incorrigible[softreturn] (Doesn't know the meaning of the word)]][[note]]([[KnowNothingKnowItAll He really doesn't]])[[/note]]]]

Third Evil Ex and and the bass player of the superband The Clash at Demonhead and the current boyfriend of its lead singer Envy Adams. He possesses psychic powers because of his devotion to veganism, but he's not particularly faithful to it... or Envy for that matter.
* NinetyPercentOfYourBrain: PlayedForLaughs. [[RunningGag Well, if you knew the "science", you'd know he's right]].
* AdaptationDyeJob: The original color images from the comic and the video game have him with brown hair, while in the movie and the color reprints of the comic he's a bleached blonde.
* AdvancingWallOfDoom: He fills this role in the video game.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: The reason Ramona immediately ditched the then lame Lucas for him.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Scott. He's dating TheOneThatGotAway and is a successful bassist. He also more or less looks like a taller, more muscular version of Scott.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The suggestion that a diet low in fat and protein (which FYI make up something like 90% of the brain) can improve brain function. Adding psychic powers as a benefit just takes it to the level of absurdity.
* BastardBoyfriend: And that's not because he's an Evil Ex of Ramona. [[spoiler: He was cheating on Envy behind her back with their drummer.]]
* BigNO: Gives this out after losing his vegen powers.
* BodyHorror: The game carries the [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]] references even further with this trope.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: He and Envy grew up together as kids before he had to move away. While Envy swears by this as proof of their love for each other, Todd clearly couldn't care less.
* ConditionalPowers: [[spoiler:"No vegan diet? No vegan powers!"]]
* DefaceOfTheMoon: He punched two craters in the moon with his Vegan powers, one for Ramona and one for Envy.
* DeflectorShields: In the game he can create an [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion AT Field]].
* TheDragon: While he is the Evil Ex of volume 3, Envy is the real villain while Todd acts more as a minion to her, [[spoiler: until the climax of the book.]] He's also somewhat this to Gideon, as he's the only Evil Ex shown to have direct contact with him, and is at ''least'' the second strongest of the group after him.
* DumbMuscle: Freakishly powerful, but much dumber than he thinks he is.
* EvilCounterpart: Less pronounced than Gideon, but like Scott, Todd is a bass player. While Scott once dated Envy and now dates Ramona, Todd once dated Ramona and now dates Envy. Todd is also [[spoiler: two-timing Envy, like Scott briefly was with Knives]].
* EvilIsPetty: Unlike all the other Exes, Todd actually had a mutual breakup with Ramona. Not only that, but he's a serial-cheater so his only motivation is for the sake of it.
* {{Expy}}: He's a Canadian, vegan [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]].
* FlippingTheBird: He does this. Especially in the video game.
* HateSink: While Matthew was pathetic and Lucas was likable, Todd is shown to be a contemptible, selfish asshole in every conceivable way. Thankfully, he is also shown to be LaughablyEvil, keeping him from entering KnightOfCerebus territory.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Todd's defeat is caused by a variety of things he has done to himself; however, Scott takes advantage of his vegan weakness in the movie a lot more effectively.
* HopelessBossFight: Scott's first few clashes with him are complete {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s due to Todd's psychic shields preventing him from taking any damage.
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum: Telekinesis through veganism! "Because 90% of your brain is curds and whey..."
* {{Jerkass}}: Really is in the running with Gideon as the biggest douche in the series. Played up even further in the game, where his default pose is a condescending and indifferent glare and his cut in portrait is him FlippingTheBird.
* TheJuggernaut: When he's using his powers, nothing can stop him.
* KarmaHoudini: Todd ''[[SubvertedTrope thinks]]'' he should be one because in his own words, "I'm a rockstar!"
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: He's clearly an idiot, but he believes every word out of his mouth to be pure genius, since he's a rock star.
* LaserGuidedKarma: As mentioned in KarmaHoudini above and SmugSnake below, he believes that he's above consequences simply because he's a rock star. [[spoiler: The Vegan Police proved otherwise.]]
* MarathonBoss: It takes several BigDamnHeroes moments for him to finally go down, and that was only after three failed attempts at fighting him.
* PowerAtAPrice: His veganism gives him unbelievable pyschic abilities at the cost of [[MundaneMadeAwesome preventing him from ever eating meat or dairy products]].
* PowerGlows: Both his eyes and body radiate with energy when he uses his powers.
* PsychicPowers: Benefit from being a Vegan.
* TheRockStar: Which means he can do anything.
* SelfDisposingVillain: His breaking of veganism by eating gelato makes the Vegan Police take away his powers, allowing Scott to defeat him.
* SmugSnake: He just ''wishes'' he could do anything and get away with everything. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: the Vegan Police prove otherwise]].
* SmugStraightEdge: He is convinced that his veganism makes him better than everyone. To be fair to him, [[SuperPowerLottery it basically does]].
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: Completely thrown out the window. Despite only being Evil Ex 3 of 7, his veganism gives him a vast array of insanely powerful psychic abilities that border on godlike, to the point where only ''maybe'' Gideon puts up a better fight than he does.
* StrawHypocrite: Claims that being a vegan makes him better than anyone else, although he ate gelato and Chicken Parmesan.
* SuperPowerLottery: Being a vegan gives him a ridiculous array of overpowered psychic abilities that make him hands down one of the most powerful characters save for ''maybe'' Gideon. [[spoiler: Of course, the price of cheating his vegan diet proves to be ''very'' costly.]]
* ThatOneBoss: InvokedTrope. He takes Scott a ''long'' time to deal with and is much, ''much'' harder than both of the Evil Exes before him. In comparison, the three that follow him take much less effort.
* VillainousBreakdown: Goes through a brief one in chapter 14 of issue 3.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Matthew was a [[WarmUpBoss warm up]] and Lucas [[SelfDisposingVillain took care of himself]], but Todd brings his A-game, to the point where his fight with Scott takes up most of the 3rd book's plot.
* WellDoneSonGuy: It's revealed during his VillainousBreakdown that he has parental issues that drove him to veganism.
* WouldHitAGirl: Cause he's a rock-star, losers!
* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler: He cheats on Envy with Lynette]] and tries to claim it's NotWhatItLooksLike, despite having her panties ''[[ImplausibleDeniability on his head]]''.

[[folder:Roxanne "Roxie" Richter]]
[[caption-width-right:250:'''Roxanne Richter'''[softreturn]Ramona's 4th Evil Ex-Boyfriend[softreturn][[SmurfettePrinciple Gender: Female]]]]

The fourth Evil Ex-Boyfriend (actually a girl). She was Ramona's college roomate and dated Ramona as part of a bi-curious "sexy phase" Ramona was going through at the time. She was Ramona's ninja mentor and is actually quite friendly with her despite being a member of the League.
* AlliterativeName: Her first and last name start with the same sound.
* AntiVillain: In the comic. Type I.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: [[spoiler:The back of her knees in the movie. In the comics, this was Envy's weak point.]]
* BerserkButton: Roxie seems pretty sensitive about people doubting her abilities, probably due to only being half-ninja.
* TheDarkChick: She's the token female member of the League and the only one who still gets along with Ramona.
* DiagonalCut: How the fight ends.
* DreamWalker: As someone who can use Subspace, she has the ability to enter dreams. She shows up in Scott's dream and cuts off his arm, nearly killing him before he wakes up.
* DudeWheresMyReward: Unlike the other Evil Exes, Roxie turns into a bunch of cute woodland animals ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''-style as opposed to coins. Scott does gain The Power of Love though, so it's not like he walks away empty-handed. Averted in the game, where the woodland creatures are worth money.
* EvilCounterpart: Has shades of this to Ramona, as they're both rollerskaters that use Subspace, and both are described as ninjas. (Half-ninja in Roxie's case.) Part of this is justified in that she's the one who taught Ramona about Subspace to begin with.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: She has eye black under her eyes in every scene we see her in in the comic, and may even wear it while she's asleep.
* FatBastard: Female version, although thanks to GenericCuteness the "fat" part isn't as visible. Ramona remarks that she almost didn't recognize her, seeing how she had put on some weight since college. Roxanne replies that Ramona's gotten puffier too.
* FatGirl: To a degree. She's noticeably drawn more pudgy than the other girls, which is brought up a few times, but she's not particularly fat.
* FriendlyEnemy: To Ramona in the comic. Not so much to Scott. Mostly because she's convinced that Scott is cheating on Ramona with Lisa.
* HairTriggerTemper: Especially in the movie, although she is still quick to anger in the comics.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Parodied; Roxie is a "half-ninja".
* {{McNinja}}: She's a parody of this trope.
* NinjaLog: Utilized in the game.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: She is never once referred to as "Roxanne" in the film.
* PsychoExGirlfriend: [[PsychoLesbian a lesbian version]].
* SamusIsAGirl: When menaced by an anonymous black blur in their first fight, Scott simply throws his fist up. Turns out he punched her in the boob, [[WouldntHitAGirl much to his disgust.]]
* ShoutOut: In the movie and game, she uses a WhipSword. Now take a moment to [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood remember her surname]].
* SingleStrokeBattle: With Scott.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The one female Evil Ex, which, in the comic, ''somehow'' is able to keep her from dying outright, getting her turned into several cute little animals instead.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Roxie" in the comic, "Roxy" in the movie.
* TattooedCrook: You can just barely make it out in the above picture, but she has the Creator/OniPress demon head logo tattooed on her shoulder.
* TeleportSpam: Almost constantly teleports away.

[[folder:Kyle and Ken Katayanagi]]
[[caption-width-right:250:'''Kyle and Ken Katayanagi'''[softreturn]Ramona's 6th and 5th Evil Ex-Boyfriends[softreturn][[SmugSnake Handsome Jerk and Perfect Asshat]]]]

Fifth and Sixth Evil Exes. A pair of Japanese twin [=DJs=] Ramona dated behind each other's backs. After she dumped them, they banded together to get back at her. They send their home-made robots out to battle Scott throughout Vol 5 before finally fighting him together.
* AlliterativeName: Both of their names have similar sounds.
* {{Bishonen}}: Both of them are tall, slender and well dressed with fine, pointy features.
* BreakThemByTalking: They attempt to break Scott by giving him a lecture on how Ramona is a hypocrite who will someday cheat on and abandon Scott just as she has done to others. It almost works, especially due to Scott and Ramona having just had some serious fights, but Kim's MotivationalLie gets Scott to disregard the attempt and shake their words off.
* DualBoss: They fight together.
* TheEvilGenius: Two of them. They're great with robotics and while most os the Exes simply try to fight Scott, they try to psychologically break and undermine him as well.
* FillerVillain: They don't actually have much of a role in the book they appear in, with the plot instead focusing on Scott's falling out with Ramona. They're more or less only around to fill in the Evil Ex quota and to move things along to get to Gideon.
* GadgeteerGenius: Mentioned to be award-winning roboticists and siccing robot {{Mooks}} on Scott before their actual "boss" fight. In the film, they become {{Musical Assassin}}s.
* PaletteSwap: In the game, which is strange, [[StoryAndGameplaySegregation because their boss portrait shows them with different hairstyles and clothes like in the comic]].
* PunnyName: K is the eleventh letter in the alphabet. 11 = 5 + 6
* ShoutOut: To [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu and Ken]]/[[VideoGame/DoubleDragon Billy and Jimmy Lee]].
* SiblingYinYang: In visual appearance. Kyle has white hair while Ken has black, and their outfits are opposite.
* SingleMindedTwins: Deliberately.
* SmugSnake: They ''are'' competent, but they still have this kind of demeanor.
* VacuumHurricaneKick: One of their moves.
%%* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Kyle.

[[folder:Gideon Gordon Graves]]
[[caption-width-right:340:'''Gideon Gordon Graves'''[softreturn]Ramona's 7th Evil Ex-Boyfriend[softreturn]Occupation: Asshole]]

Seventh and final Evil Ex and leader of the League of Evil Exes. Gideon is a 31-year-old entertainment mogul from New York and Ramona was once both his girlfriend and [[TheMuse his muse]]. [[{{Jerkass}} He is a total asshole]].
* AdaptationDyeJob: His hair appears purple in the video game, while it's black in the comics and film.
* AffablyEvil: He refers to Scott as buddy, and compliments him on his shirt. Also, after [[spoiler:he kills Scott]], he buys everyone a drink.
* AlliterativeName: All three of his names start with the same sound.
* BigBad: The leader of the League and also the exe with the greatest impact on Ramona.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: It's tough to tell from the art style, but evidently the character's look was based in part on actor Jason Schwartzman, who ended up playing him in the film.
* CrazyPrepared: "Yes! I had a sword built into Envy's dress in case of emergency! [[InvokedTrope THAT'S JUST THE KIND OF GUY I AM!]]"
* ChekhovsGunman: Gideon slips in a cameo in Todd's flashback in Volume 3, telling him to just use his Vegan abilities, and [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen shrouded in shadows]] at the end of Volume 3 right after Scott defeats Todd. He also slips in another one in Volume 4 when Scott crashes Ramona's subconscious.
* EvilCounterpart: To [[spoiler:Scott]].
* EvilPlan: Control Ramona's love life and ultimately use her to complete his collection of ex-girlfriends.
* EvilIsPetty: Along with the above plan, he started all of this [[spoiler: simply because Ramona dumped him when they were dating. The whole "league" only came about because he was drunk at the time and probably didn't even know what he was doing or that he would even be taken seriously.]]
* ExoticEyeDesigns: His pupils have a swirl shape to them. They are at least as horrifying as the ScaryShinyGlasses that usually obscure them.
* {{Expy}}: [[WordOfSaintPaul According to Jason Schwartzman, who plays him in the film version]], Gideon is partly inspired by Mr. Swan from the '70s horror-musical ''Film/PhantomOfTheParadise'', a devil-worshipping media mogul who ruins the title character's life and seduces his LoveInterest with the intent of ultimately killing her.
* FinalBoss: In the book, the movie and the game.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: By far the most evil of the exes.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: In the first five volumes, although he makes a few shadowed-out appearances in Volume 3.
* {{Jerkass}}: [[AndThatsTerrible The subtitles lampshade this repeatedly.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Most of Scott's enemies (except [[PunchclockVillain Lucas]]) were [[{{Jerkass}} huge douchebags]], but rarely went beyond that line. Gideon [[spoiler:stabs both Scott and Ramona.]]
* MeaningfulName:
** Count the letters in his name. Also, what number does G look like to you?
** His last name is Graves. [[spoiler: He ends up managing to kill Scott.]]
** "Gideon" means "feller" (of trees), "mighty warrior", and "destroyer" in Hebrew.
* NothingPersonal: Tells Scott this before [[spoiler: killing him.]]
* NotSoDifferent: He and Scott are said to be this, at least when it comes to relationships supposedly (though while Scott's problems are from his obliviousness, Gideon's appears to be more malice-based.) [[spoiler: [[ReconstructedTrope However, Scott is willing to try to change for the better in this area, whereas Gideon doesn't care, and is a general bastard.]]]]
* NumerologicalMotif: Being the 7th and last evil ex, the number seven is seen extensively with him:
** "G" is the seventh letter in the alphabet.
** Upon his death, he explodes into $ 7,777,777 in coins (a seven digit number, composed of sevens).
** With him being 31 and Scott 24, he's 7 years older than Scott.
** His pixel sword in the film grants him ''x7'' to his stats.
** Also in the film, when Knives makes him swallow his gum, he mentions it'll be in his digestive tract for 7 years.
** He has 7 [[spoiler: ex-girlfriends, with Ramona being the 7th one. He plans to lock her in with the rest of them.]]
** Every hit against him is worth 700 points. And this makes 7 examples of the seven motif for him.
** Another one is how he has six letters in his first, middle and last names, as in 666, the Mark of the Beast. Tellingly, the letter G somewhat resembles the number 6 and each of his names start with a G, another 666 mark.
* ObviouslyEvil: '''Gideon Graves: What A Dick!'''
* OneWingedAngel:
** [[ShoutOut Echoing]] the end of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Gideon transforms into a sixty-foot tall barely-clothed and brutishly muscular version of himself surrounded by his fawning (and brainwashed) ex-girlfriends. [[AntiClimaxBoss Scott literally headbutts him]] [[BroughtDownToNormal back to normal]] [[AntiClimaxBoss one page later]].
** Played straight in the game, where [[spoiler: he transforms into what looks like a cross between [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Safer Sephiroth]] and [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil the Tyrant]]. His lower half is even composed of faces of the other exes.]]
* {{Pride}}: [[spoiler: The one difference between him and Scott is that Gideon is too proud to accept being a BastardBoyfriend, while Scott is willing to change himself for the better.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: He's completely nuts and has a darkly childish flare to him/
* PunnyName: Take a wild guess what the 7th letter of the alphabet is.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Happens quite often.
* SequentialBoss: Parodies this trope, particularly in the video game, where he just ''keeps'' on getting new forms.
* SharpDressedMan: Never seen in anything but a suit and tie with vest.
* SmugSnake: He's a manipulative, arrogant, and all-around unlikeable person.
* TheSociopath: Textbook case, as he is highly socially capable, flexible, manipulative, ruthless, sadistic game-playing, superficially charming, self-directed, compassion-deprived, and calculating. Similarly to Scott, he is also mentally walled off, just less blatantly, and quite meticulous, but then so are a large part of sociopaths. However, when Scott attempts to use the Glow against him, Gideon remarks it has no effect on him since he was trapped in his own mind since he was born, so he was mentally wall-ed off since infancy. This does add plenty of credence to him being a sociopath and he certainly seems aware of it.
* VillainousBreakdown: Once Ramona starts standing up to him and helping Scott in their battle, as evidenced by pulling out a spare sword from Envy's dress, and his brush off of her when she shows concern for him. At the same time, showing how pathetic he truly is.
* WeCanRuleTogether: This offer is made [[spoiler: by Gideon to Scott, after he finds out that Ramona has left Scott. Granted, he was offering the chance to rule Ramona's future love life, rather than the world, but still...]]
* VillainHasAPoint: While Scott and Ramona ultimately both rebuff his claim, his statement on how they'll be their own worst enemy is still not entirely wrong. After all, both have similar vices (though Ramona worse than Scott) and could fall back to their own mistakes.
** At the same time, it's also subverted. Scott and Ramona may have both damaged themselves, each other and their friends because of their vices, but they recognize them as such and are working to overcome them. Ramona herself mentions she wants to overcome them together with Scott.
** Another [[PlayingWithATrope example of playing with it]] is how when Ramona returns, Gideon tries to dissuade Scott from fighting him, on the assumptions they're not an item anymore and if Ramona left him, Scott has no reason to fight Gideon. However, Scott fights Gideon for himself, not to mention that Gideon did still sic the other exes on him and the whole [[spoiler: imprison his ex-girlfriends plot was enough of a reason to get involved anyway]].
* VillainsWantMercy: In the video game, [[spoiler:he begs to the player character(s) after his third and final battle turned out to be against a robot in a holographic room. The player character(s) repond to that by taking him out in one hit.]]
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler:He impales Ramona in the comics, with the subtitles declare him to be a dick for doing so.]]

[[folder:Julie Powers]]
[[caption-width-right:350:'''Julie Powers'''[softreturn][[TheSnarkKnight The Original and the Best]][softreturn]WARNING: Huge Bitch!]]

Stephen's on/off girlfriend and a quasi-main character. Known for her abrasive personality and razor-sharp criticisms of others.
* AlphaBitch: Kinda. She certainly has the personality yet she hangd around the others.
* DeathGlare: Her default expression.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: For all her complaints, she [[spoiler:was quite visibly shocked when seeing Scott die by the hands of Gideon.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Though she [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold MIGHT have a]] HiddenHeartOfGold, it would be really really deep down though.
* {{Meganekko}}: In the later volumes.
* NoAccountingForTaste: She and Stephen have broken up and gotten back together so many times that nobody even questions why they're still dating anymore.
* SatelliteCharacter: Though ''whose'' satellite depends on the volume.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Her AlphaBitch attitude is the reason why and her only real connection to the group is through being Stephen's girlfriend.
* {{Tsundere}} Decidedly of the ''tsun-tsun'' type.

[[folder:Stacey Pilgrim]]
[[caption-width-right:220:'''Stacy Pilgrim'''[softreturn]Age: A very mature 19 years old[softreturn][[OnlySaneMan The Only Sane Woman]]]]

Scott's younger, more mature sister. Rated "T" for Teen. She serves as Scott's moral support when Wallace is nowhere to be found. Works at the Second Cup coffee house and becomes good friends with Ramona. She is based on and shares the same first name as Bryan Lee O'Malley's real-life sister.
* DeadpanSnarker: Snarks at Scott whenever possible.
* FagHag: In the 6th level of the video-game she is the only straight background character. Make of that what you will.
* JerkAss: She's often a jerk to her older brother.
** JerkAssHasAPoint: She often has a lot of valid points and just wants Scott to get his life together.
* OnlySaneMan: She seems to be the only character without any major issues, and the only character to react like it's unusual to have [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight fights to the death between total strangers.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: In the final volume of the series, despite being shown as a perfectly nice and amiable woman before, she's suddenly acting like a {{jerkass}} to both Scott and Young Neil with absolutely no explanation given whatsoever.
* SatelliteCharacter: For Scott. She's buddies with Wallace, but we don't get to see much of the two together, and she herself stays out of most of the action.
* ShipTease: [[spoiler:With Neil]].
* ToughLove: A more positive way to interpret her more unpleasant moments with Scott; she does show to care about him and the first thing she does when [[spoiler: he's killed is to call their folks.]]

[[folder:Mr. Chau]]
[[caption-width-right:240:'''Mr. Chau'''[softreturn]Age: Adult[softreturn][[KnightTemplarParent Even more dedicated than his daughter]]]]

Knives' father. Doesn't take kindly to hearing his daughter was dating a white guy. Serves as a mini-boss/double-blind StealthMentor to Scott in Vol 4.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Cuts right through a trolley like butter.
* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: He's absurdly good with his samurai sword for no reason other than he's Chinese.
* BadassLongcoat: Wears one.
* BonusBoss: In the video game. He randomly spawns on the map and proves to be ''quite'' powerful when fought.
* {{Determinator}}: Doubles as a ShoutOut as well.
* FunWithSubtitles: He speaks only in Chinese characters. The other characters aren't privy to the translation subtitles--not even his own daughter. This becomes a BilingualBonus because what he says to her is not remotely related to the translation given.
* ImplacableMan: Nothing can slow him down.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Slices a bus in half without even flinching and overpowers Roxanne Richter during their brief skirmish before ending it early.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Uses a samurai sword. It's never elaborated on what kind of sword it is though.
* KnightTemplarParent: Initially didn't like the prospect of Knives dating a white guy. He gets over it when he sees Scott defeat Roxy.
* OverprotectiveDad: To Knives.
* TheQuietOne: Speaks all of twice throughout his appearance.
* RoamingEnemy: He stalks Scott through the entirety of Vol. 4. Also applied to the Video game.
* SinisterShades: Wears these.
* TheStoic: He has a constant look of quiet intensity on his face.
* WorthyOpponent: A very weird variation. After seeing Scott stand up to Roxie and unlock the Power of Love, he stops pursuing Scott. Scott seems to lampshade it. It seems to be seeing Scott go through his CharacterDevelopment made him realize that Knives dating someone like Scott wouldn't be so bad after all.
* WouldHitAGirl: Attacked Ramona for being in the same breathing space as Scott, who later tricks him into attacking Roxy.

[[folder:Lisa Miller]]
[[caption-width-right:194:'''Lisa Miller'''[softreturn]GuestStarPartyMember[softreturn][[UnluckyChildhoodFriend The Old Best Friend]]]]

Scott's first friend from high school, she was once part of his group of friends alongside Kim, even forming a band together. They lost contact with he moved away, but they reconnect when she shows up in Vol 4. Years before Scott Pilgrim was created, Bryan Lee O'Malley used the name "Lisa Miller" for a different (or at least much less defined) character in his short-lived comic strip "Style".
* AdaptationDyeJob: Whenever Creator/PaulRobertson draws her (i.e. for the game and the six-volume comic box set), she has pale pink hair instead of the blonde O'Malley uses. This could be a reference to Bryan Lee O'Malley's old web comic, [[http://web.archive.org/web/20041015185541/http://www.radiomaru.com/comics/style_oni/style-3.jpg Style]], where she had pink hair.
* JustFriends: Despite the suspicions from Roxie and Ramona's jealousy to the otherwise, Lisa and Scott are this. However, Lisa has shown that she may want it to be more.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Scott's reaction when they are reunited.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: On Lisa's side at least there's a fair bit, but Scott can't bring himself to explore it because of his relationship with Ramona.

[[folder:Lynette Guycott]]
[[caption-width-right:160:'''Lynette Guycott'''[softreturn]Dream Job: Awesome Ninja[softreturn][[TeleportSpam Special Ability: Teleportation]]]]

The drummer of The Clash at Demonhead. She largely remains silent and expressionless and lets Envy and Todd do all the talking. She has a bionic arm and is capable of teleportation.
* ArtificialLimbs: She has a bionic arm.
* TheDragon: To Envy.
* EmotionlessGirl: She never really shows any emotion.
* OpaqueLenses: It's subtly implied in the comics that they're just ScaryShinyGlasses, but they're outright reflective lenses in the movie.
* PunnyName: In French, ''lunettes'' means glasses. Her last name is also a reference to a recurring boss in [[VideoGame/ClashAtDemonhead the game]] her band is named after.
* TheQuietOne: She hardly ever talks.
* StoicSpectacles: Wears these.
* TeleFrag: Envy [[AnArmAndALeg tears her bionic arm off]] as she teleports away. Ramona later decides to have it mounted.
* TeleportersAndTransporters
* TeleportSpam: Her fighting style in the game.
* TheVamp: A short scene in the comic shows her from Todd's P.O.V seducing him to cheat on Envy.

[[folder:The Negascott]]
[[caption-width-right:247:'''Negascott'''[softreturn]Age: -24 years old[softreturn][[EvilCounterpart Rating: Negative Awesome!]]]]

Scott's dark side, who makes his first appearance in Vol. 4 just before Scott's battle with Roxanne Richter. He makes a second appearance after Ramona goes missing in action, and finally confronts Scott in one of his darker moments in Vol. 6.
* EnemyWithout: To Scott.
* MirrorScare: Does this to Scott in Volume 5.
* SheatheYourSword: [[spoiler:How Scott defeats him.]]
* SlasherSmile: Dons one frequently.
* SplitPersonalityMerge: His ultimate fate.

[[caption-width-right:170:'''Joseph'''[softreturn][[SatelliteCharacter Kim's Roommate]][softreturn]Status: Professional Dillhole]]

One of Kim's roommates when she moves into a new apartment. Quiet and not much of a talker, but is pretty insulting and abrasive when he does talk. Stephen notices he has a home music studio and coaxes Joseph into letting Sex Bob-omb use it to make a album.
* ClosetKey: [[spoiler: For Stephen.]] Slowly becomes obvious over the course of the series. Joseph himself is openly gay.
* TheEngineer: He's good enough with his music studio that he can actually make Sex Bob-omb sound good.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: This guy is such an asshole and it's clear the others dislike him as much as he dislikes them.
-->'''Joseph:''' I don't like your friends. Seriously, get new ones.
* JerkAss: A bigger one than even Julie. He's usually pissed off looking all the time and described as the insensitive one, notably his expression remained unchanged when [[spoiler: Scott and later Ramona were killed by Gideon.]]
* NoAccountingForTaste: He's like a male version of Julie. Hell, he's apparently even bitchier based on the others' reactions. [[spoiler: The fact he doesn't react to Scott getting ''stabbed'' says a lot about this guy... and nothing pleasant.]]
* TheQuietOne: He doesn't often speak, and when he does the text in his word balloons are much smaller than everyone else's, indicating that he has a very quiet voice. Whenever he ''does'' say anything, though, it's almost always to insult someone.
* PerpetualFrowner: He is usually frowning in every situation, especially when he is talking about someone.
* SorryILeftTheBGMOn: It turns out he's responsible for all the broadcasting music going on in the game except for in the Katayanagis' lair and places like [[FictionalCounterpart Leo's Place]] and Chaos Theater.
* StraightGay: He doesn't meet any stereotypes.

[[folder:Michael Comeau]]
[[caption-width-right:190:'''Michael Comeau'''[softreturn]The Mutual Friend[softreturn]Knows everybody; including you!]]

A mutual friend of everyone (even you). He usually turns up once every other book, sometimes just in the background. Based on and named after an artist friend of the author's.
* ArtifactOfDeath: He has a freaky skull ring that came "from the future" and it whispers Scott's name as he shows it off to him. It's implied to be MadeOfEvil, but it's never followed up on.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: In the guest comic focusing on him ([[HerCodeNameWasMarySue drawn by Michael Comeau]]), he manages to put up a pretty good fight against Scott "Best fighter in the Province" Pilgrim. He still ends up losing, though.
* ADayInTheLimelight: One of the extra-canonical guest comics is devoted entirely to him. Following that is a comic drawn by the real Michael Comeau, discussing his character's role in the comic and his relationship with the author.
* NiceGuy: He gets along with everybody.
* SatelliteCharacter: Manages to somehow be this to ''every single person in existence''.

* OnlySaneMan: At first, she keeps Knives in check.
* SatelliteCharacter: For Knives.
