Big Eyes Little Eyes: His eyes are bigger than those of the other characters. This fact is often pointed out. Including by him.
Can Not Spit It Out - Torg's crush on ZoŽ, which has been going for at least eight years. He did however spit it out to a parallel earth ZoŽ; it didn't end well, and he doesn't want to put the home-dimension ZoŽ at risk. Given the survival/sanity records of his girlfriends, not spitting it out is fairly sensible.
He let her die! Even granted this wasn't his fault, and that he has now metabolized this fear into a damn good rationalization, it's a lovely little justification for this trope.
Catch Phrase: "WOH-PAH!" when doing martial arts; "I had a coupon."
Cool Sword: He has a sword that when it drinks the blood of the innocent, allows him to kill demons, he becomes an expert swordsman and it can even talk!
Morphic Resonance: Gwynn once cursed Torg by turning him into a donkey, but he still retained his haircut. In a realm of shadows, when Torg refused to face his fears, his appearance became demonic, but even then, he still had the same hairstyle.
My Parents Are Dead: It is revealed that Torg's parents are dead (and that they made his middle name Sluggy).
Catch Phrase - "Let me check my notes"; "I'm on a budget here." ; "Dunno" (usually about relationship issues)
Chronic Hero Syndrome: He has these moments. On one occasion he claimed that he had to be hero because he was "union."
Despair Event Horizon/Wangst: His actions at the end of "758449" after discovering evidence that His Masterness may very well be his 4U counterpart. Which one it falls under is debatable.
He was already Wangsting when he got to 4U, because he felt responsible for ZoŽ's death, since he didn't know Oasis can create explosions with her mind, and assumed his experimental prototype was to blame.
Disappeared Dad: A world traveler and archaeologist, Riff's father has been alluded to multiple times but had not made an appearance on panel until May 14, 2013.
Moral Dissonance: He's extremely dickish to Aylee and Sam, constantly trying to find/make up an excuse to kill either of them. It is all but stated that this is due to paranoia rather then malice, but still...
Properly Paranoid: ...Then again, both Aylee and Sam are members of extremely powerful species who do eat people (though Aylee has evolved beyond that need) and, at times, have become threats due to inability to fully resist their hunger. At the very least, the weapons and gadgets he made out of said paranoia have saved the group's bacon multiple times.
The Spark of Genius: His inventions make sense to a very small group of people. Attempts to reproduce them without the direct involvement of Riff or brilliant scientists who have worked with him for years just don't work. Of course, this is mostly just because of Riff's horrible documentation, leaving out what he perceives to be "no brainers". Hereti Corp manages to get around this and develop a means of deciphering his work.
Hinted (as of Sept 14 2011) to have a reason other than Rule of Cool:
Torg: If the nanites are perfect, why didn't they fix your eyes?
Later revealed to be a genetic condition of some sort that doctors don't even have a name for. His father has the same condition, but to a sufficiently lesser degree that he doesn't always wear his shades.
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes???: Riff, the most badass member of the team, is mortally afraid of clowns (Yet still tries dressing as one to calm Aylee down to save his friends from vamps) - oh, and also is afraid of the department of motor vehicles.
ZoŽ BeanThe Unlucky Everygirl that ends up constantly involved in everyone else's screwiness. While more capable than most, she's clearly The Chick most of the time.
Back from the Dead: Thanks to Dr. Schlock's manipulations and Oasis's power, she suffers horrible burns. While the Nanites of 4U city are able to repair her body, her mind is completely destroyed, leaving her brain-dead. Riff managed to revive her by taking a snapshot from before the incident, effectively restoring her from a backup.
Bald Women: For some time. (While changed into a camel, she bit off Gwynn's hair; Gwynn retaliated with a spell that made ZoŽ lose all of her hair.) however it has FINALLY grown back.
Butt Monkey: Usually ends up undergoing some ignominy (such as turning into a camel) even when she isn't involved in the latest escapade.
The Chosen One: ZoŽ was foretold to be the "Storm Breaker," who will defeat the demon K'Z'K. It's 'She will bring about' the defeat of K'Z'K. Thanks to the end of bROKEN it seems that she's the catalyst that pushes Torg (and Chaz) closer and closer to the fight with K'Z'K. When Riff's father, a K'Z'K cultist, learns of her identity, he calls her Kozoaku's greatest weakness and tries to murder her for this reason.
Fate Worse than Death: Thought to be Killed Off for Real, ZoŽ is revealed to be alive...unconscious and permanently hooked up to life support. Her body is far too weak for morphine so she spends her conscious hours screaming in pain. The worst part? Her injures are so severe that her body will never heal.
It's gotten worse. Technology in that city actually can heal her body, and has. Unfortunately, it didn't have a similar "snapshot" of her mind. She's a perfectly healthy body - with a blank mind sitting inside. The ZoŽ they knew is gone; all that is left is her living husk.
Its even worse. There isn't a blank mind in her, there's no mind at all. She is literally nothing but a barely sentient, barely aware vegetable/construct.
And she got better due to the results of Riff's amazing Batman Gambit. Of course she still has to find a way to explain her apparent death and two year absence.
Femme Fatale: Pulled a convincing one to have a group work for the Crushestro alliance
Foreshadowing: Way back when she was added as a character on a radio show, Zoe went by the alias "Leslie Bean." The way the character she played was described was to imply that she was a lesbian. Years later, it's revealed that, like the hosts from that show, the directors were making a joke about her last name - The Reveal of her last name was years before it was officially confirmed.
Involuntary Shapeshifting - Her tendency to turn into a camel when a certain magic word is mentioned. How very shupid. *POOF*
Living Emotional Crutch: Riff's father, Wilcott Wilden, believes that Torg can't live without her. Wanting to eliminate the threat she poses to K'Z'K, he tries to Mercy Kill Torg in addition to murdering Zoe for this reason.
She once rendered Zoe permanently bald with Black Magic as punishment for biting her hair off after Gwynn turned Zoe into a camel. In order to undo the spell, she ended up having to make a Deal with the Devil and nearly lost her soul in the process.
In a fit of rage, she once rendered Zoe permanently bald with a curse. She came to regret it, but was unable to undo the curse herself. So she made another deal with some extremely powerful demonic soul merchants.
It's All About Me: She is extremely selfish, though she does at least feel guilty thinking about herself this way when Clonee seemingly goes on a rampage eating everyone.
Just a Stupid Accent: When she and a Queen of Mohkadun experience a Mental Time Travel"Freaky Friday" Flip, they end up in places with different languages, without the usual Aliens Speaking English in play. While her speech patterns are inflexible, the Queen does an excellent job of picking up English. Gwynn on the other hand is portrayed with terrible English grammar to indicate how bad she is at speaking the Mohkadun language.
The Load: In a sense. A lot of the problems the cast have had to deal with all came about as a result of her own overly vindictive behavior. She is also ignorant of all non-fashion related fields to the point that she doesn't even know about modern plumbing.
Bun-bun/Sluggy, God of PowerA miniature talking and very evil lop-eared bunny which might be the most dangerous force in the universe. Very violent and short-tempered, though perfectly controlled if he needs to be. Quite possibly the smallest Big Guy ever to reach his level of badassitude.
Almost always refers to Torg as 'Nerd-Boy' (though he has used his real name a handful of times). Also often refers to ZoŽ and indeed any woman as 'toots'.
Mad Libs Catch Phrase: He's also called other characters 'Nerd-X' or 'X-Boy', such as in Oceans Unmoving calling Crazy Carver 'Nerd-Goat' and Calix 'Leaf-Boy'.
Amnesiac God: Bun-bun has a mysterious past that he himself can remember little of, thanks to the fact that he got into a fight with his future self and got hit hard in the head. Gwynn experiences a Mental Time Travel"Freaky Friday" Flip, and ends up in an ancient civilization with statues dedicated to the gods. One of them is the God of Power, Sluggy, who bears a suspicious resemblance to Bun-bun. Bun-bun has thus far had little access to his god magic, such as Voluntary Shapeshifting, but he is incredibly tough and has survived things he really shouldn't have.
Freudian Excuse: Bun-bun's mother was butchered right in front of him, and he was unable to protect or control her. This is why Bun-bun shuts everyone out. He strikes everyone out of anger for his failure to do anything about it.
I Hate Past Me: At one point, Bun-bun gets trapped in Timeless Space. Though suffering from amnesia, he vaguely remembers that he has been trapped there before and searches for his past self to see how he got out. Knowing that he would suspect any rabbit claiming to be his future self to be part of a set-up, he doesn't reveal himself to his younger self, pretending to be a robot. His younger self causes him so much trouble, that Bun-bun finds it difficult to avoid killing him, which would obviously be bad and ends up causing the amnesia he was struck with in the first place. When he finally gets what he wants and is free of Timeless Space, he beats his younger self up out of frustration and says that anyone can only stand him so long.
Implacable Bunny - So far, he's been eaten alive, blown up so hard it destroyed the building he was standing in, thrown out of the time stream itself twice, and burned to a crisp. After that last one, he threw the animal services guy who tried to put him down out a window and is back at full strength, though it did take some time for his fur to grow back (and as he showed ZoŽ, his face under his fur still has burn scars).
Mysterious Past - There's still a lot we don't know about Bun-bun's origins. All we know is that he originally came from a far earlier century, he was feuding with Santa back then as well, and his actions in his original era necessitated the use of the first Deus Ex Ovum and his original ejection from time.
Older Than He Looks? - Speculated in-universe. Basphomy's conversation with Mrs. Claus regarding the second Deus Ex Ovum suggests that the point in time that Bun-bun was originally thrown out of was centuries ago, and that he ended up in the modern era due to returning to a different point in time when he left Timeless Space the first time. There's also a statue that looks very much like him in the ancient kingdom of Mokhadun that seems to be the God of Power, Sluggy.
Only Known by Their Nickname: Thanks to a Stable Time Loop, Gwynn, in Queen Siphaniana's body, recognizes Sluggy as Bun-bun and calls him by that name. Uncle Time is quick to pick it up, since it makes him sound adorably harmless. By the present era, thanks to amnesia, Bun-bun remembers little of his past, or the fact that he was ever called anything other than Bun-bun.
Refuge in Audacity - Bun-bun's attitude, e.g. in one early strip, his "pirate crew" (consisting of Kiki and a little girl) is drowning, so after musing that he can't really be a pirate captain without a crew... he throws his hat away and rows off to start a black market drugs ring in Tijuana instead.
AyleeFish out of water shapeshifting alien, that came from an early parody of Alien and Star Trek and stuck around. Reserve Big Guy, Lancer, Team Pet varying depending on her form(occasionally changes forms involuntarily to adapt to her environment) and the other characters present. Is personality wise a kind of Genius Ditz due to balance between her naivety and her predatory cunning.
Alien Blood: In her first form, it's revealed that she has orange juice for blood, and apparently it's the pulpy kind. Though this has probably changed along with her change in forms.
Extreme Omnivore: Her red dragon form, which ate just about everything but what would traditionally be considered food.
I'm a Humanitarian: When she was introduced, she ate an entire spaceship crew, minus Torg and Riff. After she wound up on Earth, she kept eating people, although it wasn't treated as seriously as it probably should have been. She eventually kicked the habit, and the forms she has adopted after that have tended to be herbivorous or similar.
Even they won't torture someone with Susan Powter commercials.
Even Dimension of Pain demons think human politicians are the worst kind of scum.
Too Dumb to Live: They come very close to this and commonly die thanks to their stupid actions. The only reason they haven't wiped themselves out is because they are powerful and tough enough to usually survive the consequences of their antics.
Scars Are Forever: After receiving a very slight graze from Torg's god killing sword, Chaz, the Demon King is left crippled, which is still a lot more than can be said for the sword's other victims.
The Goddess of GoodnessThe former ruler of what is now the Dimension of Pain, she was defeated and overthrown by the Demon King.
God Empress: She is a god and was once the ruler of what is now the Dimension of Pain. After getting stuck in the Dimension of Lame, its citizens vote her President.
God of Good: She was this to the dimension she once ruled. She is currently this to the Dimension of Lame, an extremely annoying plane she escaped to in order to recharge her power with the incredible innocence of its citizens.
Idiot Ball: Thanks to the brain freeze caused by being stuck in a freezer for so many centuries, she makes some bone-headed mistakes.
Sealed Good in a Can: The Demon King sealed her in a ziplock bag and stuffed her in his freezer. Torg eventually releases her in order to stop the Demonic Invaders of the Dimension of Pain and return him home.
HorribusA demon lord from the Dimension of Pain and a recurring villain in the strip at least until That Which Redeems.
Attack Its Weak Point - There are apparently only two ways to kill a Demon Lord: decapitation, or stabbing him through the center of his soul with an enchanted weapon.
Honor Before Reason: Torg's initial escape from the Dimension of Pain was the first black mark on his record as demon lord. He became obsessed with re-capturing Torg at any cost in hopes of regaining his perfect streak. This obsession costs the D o P their dimensional take-over, the Demon King a sizable chunk of power, and Horribus his demon lord powers alongside endless suffering at the hands of his boss.
Ironically his alternate self from the dimension of Sham-pain just decided to be more strict on Dine n Dashers than hunt the Torg that escaped his dimension (Which saves him from the Dimension of Pain Horribus' fate).
He crushes Alt-ZoŽ with a building that was meant for Torg.
He also kills Mosp for getting in his way.
Not-So-Harmless Villain - After all the goofiness of the storylines he's in after his introduction (both in the main comic and in Ian Mcdonald's Meanwhile... Saturday strip), this trope bites hard when he leads the invasion of the Dimension of Lame in That Which Redeems.
Orcus on His Throne - Horribus' attempts to retrieve Torg involve sending his minions one by one, each Hallowe'en. Justified as dimensional transport gives him stomach problems, and the one time he goes after Torg himself he ends up spending that Hallowe'en... on a throne.
Actually been done to him twice. The first time was the Demon King getting pissed that he failed to even be a bit of a threat in an attempted Halloween kidnapping of Torg, where at least Psyk, Mosp and even Reakk were threats, and he was banished to the surface of the Dimension of Pain for a while with Uozin (using a mystical camera to bind him to the demon hunter) till someone willingly takes it from him. His second You Have Failed Me was FAR more severe though.
Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Part of her back story. She betrayed her city to the demons and sealed the doom of her people in exchange for letting her and her lover flee. But instead, the demons tried to assassinate her and accidentally killed her lover.
ReakkA servant of Horribus who is not all that bright.
Too Dumb to Live: A particularly bad case who has shown this time and time again. A good example of this is when he wandered around trying to find Torg on Halloween, failing to realize Torg was right in front of him the whole time.
Honest Advisor: Is the only one of the demons willing to argue with Horribus that his obsession with Torg is distracting them from conquering the Dimension of Lame. Though Horribus is in no mood to listen.
Rage Breaking Point: It was one thing to ruin their invasion of the Dimension of Lame. But killing Mosp was the last straw for Psyk who refused to follow Horribus any more in his obsessive revenge quest against Torg.
Red Right Hand: Horribus snaps off one of his horns in a fit of anger and it becomes infected. After Psyk becomes Psykosis, the black infection covers the entire side of his head and neck.
Dr. Steve HeretiThe founder of Hereti Corp. After his son, Daedelus, managed to take away control, Dr. Hereti made off with the Oasis project and hid himself away in a secret laboratory hidden in the woods.
Steve Hereti: "Well once I rule the world, she'll have to say yes."
Bond Villain Stupidity: Enforced. When he decides he just wants to shoot Torg and be done with it, Torg convinces him to be more like a real villain. That is, by telling Torg his master plan and cutting him in half with a laser. Steve decides to settle for tying Torg to a chair and blinding him with a pen light.
It's Personal: He was NOT happy with his son for taking his company away from him and left Oasis with an order to kill every Hereti Corp employee she sees.
Corrupt Corporate Executive: He was the CEO of an evil company named Hereti Corp. After Hereti Corp was investigated for murder and financial fraud, he pinned the blame on Dr. Chen and fled to BurgerMeister. He eventually took over by having the previous owner killed and used it to launch Hereti Corp's rebirth.
Foreshadowing: Years before he was revealed to be Dr Steve's son, this strip contains a hidden message if you turn the third panel upside down: DR STEVE IS DA...
He has the guy who designed Hereti Corp's logo assassinated to save five dollars in royalties.
He tries to have Dr. Schlock murdered as revenge for Schlock's role in destroying the previous incarnation of Hereti Corp, even though it was his own fault Dr. Schlock felt the need to do so and he wouldn't have otherwise been a threat this time. Dr. Schlock being very capable when a Cornered Rattlesnake, this ends up backfiring horribly.
RobertsOne of Hereti Corp's executives. Likes to goof around a lot, much to Daedelus's annoyance
KusariOasis's "sister". She was the end result of a project meant to mimic Oasis's abilities. Though far saner than her counterpart, she is also compelled to obey commands from the CEO of Hereti Corp, whoever it may be.
My Master, Right or Wrong: Deconstructed. While she is loyal to Schlock for the moment, she is ultimately the puppet of whoever is currently CEO Hereti Corp. Schlock learns this hard way when he accidentally gives his title to Chen and barely escapes with his life as she starts to murder everyone in the building under Chen's orders.
GennaroA scientist and executive in the second incarnation of Hereti Corp.
Ambition Is Evil: He assassinated his boss and one of his coworkers to help Daedelus launch a coup on the previous owners of BurgerMeister, rising in the company as a reward.
Killed Off for Real: When Chen briefly tricks Dr. Schlock into naming him CEO, he ordered Kusari to kill everyone in the building save Daedelus. Gennaro is one of her first victims.
Mad Scientist: Not the craziest case, but it's doubtful an entirely sane scientist would be in his position.
Parrot Pet Position: Corsica, Frog's lady friend but otherwise a normal frog, gets attracted to all the flies on Gennaro's person. He proceeds to keep her on his shoulder and pretend Corsica's his new girlfriend to make Frog jealous as a way of getting back at Frog for the annoyance Frog caused him when Frog was his boss.
Dr. ShankraftWas a evil scientist of his own till Torg and co ruined his company. Now works as director of Research and Development at Hereti-Corp. Crushestro stated that Dr. Shankraft was the only person he hated more than the Minion Master.
The Starscream: A version of him in an Alternate Universe tried to kill Dr. Schlock in a coup. Needless to say, it didn't go very well for him and he ended up being the one killed. As a result, Dr. Schlock didn't have any portal experts aside from himself to fix the damage the DFA eventually caused.
Biyu DaiyuUsed to be a low ranking assistant in the Nofun company, but is now an executive of Hereti-Corp.
Why Did It Haveto Be Snakes: Has a great fear of firebreathing/fireproof ducks (as she thinks ducks are dangerous as it is, having mastery over 3 of the Greek alchemical elements.) Shankraft thinks she has lost her marbles. But the flashbacks in the 4U City universe prove her right, with fire breathing ducks being one of the many horrors that tore that Alternate Universe apart.
See the Others section.
See the Others section.
The Cult of K'Z'K
K'Z'K the Vowelless/Kozoaku, the God of DestructionThe first true Big Bad of the series, K'Z'K (often called Kiske, much to his chagrin) is the Mohkadun God of Destruction. He is introduced as an extremely powerful demon Torg, Riff, and Gwynn accidentally unleashed while playing with the Book of Evil. Although defeated by Torg and ZoŽ, he did not die, but instead his lingering will latched onto a depressed Gwynn and attempted to corrupt her into his new host before once again being vanished. Although his status as Big Bad has long since been passed over to Hereti Corp, he is still a constant presence in the comic, as his demonic servants have now formed a cult to free him from his banishment. And he is likely to prove Eviler than Thou, now that Hereti Corp and his cult are on the brink of war...
Asteroids Monster: After getting destroyed by Zoe, he split apart into vast numbers of fragments, each latching on to the souls he had consumed. Most of them are mindless, but a few of these fragments retain his consciousness.
Big Bad: Not the first one to appear technically (Horribus and the Vampires predated him), but he was certainly the first one that was presented as a nigh-undefeatable threat and is the symbol of one of the two most dangerous organizations on the planet.
The Corrupter: When he started off his end of the world scenario in the middle ages, he was able to turn the recent dead into demonic creatures under his control. When he was defeated by Zoe, a surviving piece of his being latched on to Gwynn's soul. This fragment tempted Gwynn with magic to solve her problems, increasing his power and using her petty nature to alienate her from her friends.
Demonic Possession: Obviously. He gained the power to possess mortals due to Krohnus changing his nature to that of a demon. Dunuloa realized that this was also a double edged sword, and that it would be possible to imprison him by having him possess a mortal and sealing said mortal into a scroll.
In the ancient past, in the city of Mohkadun, the king ordered the execution of a pair of individuals as punishment for spying on his favorite queen. When they escaped, he had their entire families executed, enraging the city into rebellion. The king's paranoid measures eventually succeeded in suppressing the rebellion. According to the propaganda, the rebels began efforts to summon Kozoaku in an effort to destroy the king out of desperation, even though Kozoaku will inevitably destroy all of them as well. In actuality, the God of Justice turned traitor and persuaded the King to summon Kozoaku in an effort to destroy the other gods, especially Kron, a demigod who had wronged the king. The traitor god intended to use Kozoaku to destroy Krohnus so as to overthrow him, but Kozoaku reveals that he has his own plans, ruining the traitor's plans after a Humiliation Conga.
Gwynn summoned him to murder Riff as revenge for Riff's attempt to cheat on her. As a result, K'Z'K managed to steal her soul and possess her twice. In an Alternate Universe, this resulted in the end of the world. This one was only saved because a time traveller went into the past and caused K'Z'K's defeat, splitting off the timeline.
God of Evil: Technically, he is the God of Destruction, but he performs his duties with too much enthusiasm, enjoys hurting people, and destroys things well before he is actually supposed to do so.
Puppeteer Parasite: He takes the skin of a human girl named Ti-Ti-Ti in order to trick Wyntiti into protecting a secret box over the generations.
Red Right Hand: At one point, Kozoaku steals the skin of a human girl to trick Wyntiti. When Wyntiti gazes upon Kozoaku, Kozoaku maintains the disguise and looks like a normal girl. But when she looks away, Kozoaku's extra eyes appear out of where the girl's diamond tattoos were.
Screw Destiny: Fate was literally created to stop him from destroying the world prematurely by putting a plan between pillars of creation and destruction. His main goal is to get around the Web of Fate and destroy the world permanently.
Sealed Evil in a Can: Many many times. God ascended Father Time into godhood to stop Kozoaku from bringing about the End of the World as We Know It before he is actually meant to do so. At first, Khronos just tried to block him with the Web of Fate, influencing events away from the world's destruction. But Kozoaku was very powerful and eventually managed to break through it. Then, Khronos tried to reduce him into a demon and imprison him in a pocket dimension called the Never. Kozoaku tricked mortals into releasing him. Khronos tried imprisoning him a second time and empowered new gods to serve as role models against Kozoaku's call. But the God of Justice turned traitor and arranged for Kozoaku to be summoned again. Kozoaku is then sealed into the Book of E-Ville, and his name is changed to K'Z'K to weaken his power. He gets released yet again by Gwynn, but is ultimately shattered into many pieces by Zoe.
Speak of the Devil: Use of the God of Destruction's true name empowers him, and his name is also a component of the simplest ways of releasing him. As such, his enemies changed his true name from Kozoaku to K'Z'K, making it impossible to pronounce.
Stable Time Loop: Krohnus sealed him into the Never Dimension. But even though the present Kozoaku was unable to directly ensure his release, he was able to reach out through time. A free future incarnation of himself ultimately created the very past conditions that allowed said free incarnation to break out in the first place.
Third Eye: Is depicted as having this in his true demonic form and in his miniscule bug form.
The Unpronounceable: It turns out this was deliberate. His enemies changed Kozoaku's true name to K'Z'K to make it impossible to pronounce, because the use of Kozoaku's name empowers him.
Your Soul Is Mine: He collects them from his victims. When Gwynn stupidly summons him in an attempt to murder Riff, he is able to steal hers, and when his physical form is destroyed, a piece of him latches on as her soul returns to her body. The very first victim of this was the supposed god of Justice, Lord Symachus.
SkippyA light blue, mucus (or bubble gum) like demon that worked with K'Z'K. He was summoned when a man named Bob attempted to read a Bazooka Joe comic after a printing error had caused its ink to run into runes of pure evil. Skippy can transform Bob into a sticky goo. The demon first appeared as K'Z'K's underling after Gwynn's second possession. Though he acted obsequious, it has been implied that Skippy was far more knowledgeable than he appeared. He is now the head of The Release, another cadre of humans and demons eagerly anticipating K'Z'K's return.
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Has a mentally retarded brother of whom he is very sensitive towards and protective of, in spite of the fact that, as stated by Chilus, he shouldn't feel any kind of sympathy to anyone since he is a demon.
He shouted "Bob NOOO!!" When his first host died and told Chilus he was rather fond of Bob.
Noble Demon: He may want to bring about the end of the world, but he would prefer not to cause unnecessary suffering along the way and is willing to give his enemies a swift death.
ChilusA wasp-like demon. She began a cult based around K'Z'K fifty years ago, including several human members (who have the cult's symbol tattooed on them), but now believes the end of the world is her own task. Chilus possessed and subverted key elements of Clonegressive, LLC and engineered the brain-bug "accident." It was her intention that the bugs would escape into the world and turn humanity into an army of zombie-like antisocial geeks. She had intended ZoŽ, the legendary Storm Breaker, to be among her first victims. After her plot failed, she managed to escape the building by possessing Meander, sister of Clonegressive's head. Skippy is very angry with her for allowing ZoŽ to re-enter the equation.
Demonic Possession:Not only is Chilus this, she is the only demon known to have changed host bodies.
Fantastic Racism: Is contemptuous of mortals and underestimates their abilities, which was largely the reason why her Clonegressive plan failed.
LaceyA female Demon that works with Chillus that work at human resources. her demonic form looks like a lacewing .
Humans Are Special: Unlike Chillus who is ready to dismiss humans. Lacey views them on abit higher scale
Chillus: You Give them too much credit
Lacey: And you give them too little! We were founded by an 'Ordinary mortal'.
Noble Demon: While it too early to say if it this or not, her stance that human deserve respect and that seems abit sad that N'aaaw mention stealing the book from Gwynn . Of course that might have been more annoyance about how disorganize for stuff like security clearance.
N'aaawFirst introduced as part of the K'Z'K surveillance team keeping an eye on Gwynn, N'aaaw is a female demon with a deliberately cute human form, which she uses to her advantage more than once. Her demon form resembles a purple Hulk with More Teeth than the Osmond Family. She has demonstrated Super Strength and an incredibly fast Healing Factor.
WhisperIntroduced as the partner of N'aaaw, Whipser appears to be the more Intelligent of the Duo. She has the ability to turn Humans into large dogs that are subservient to her will, and she can travel through shadows. Her demon form resembles a small black snake.
Viral Transformation: The No-Fun legacy group is the main universe's version of the Dimension of Pain. Much like the Dimension of Pain, they have a "squid on a stick" that can transform people. Unlike the Spear of Callmadar however, it is technological in nature and turns people into pain loving mutants rather than pain loving demons. The Crushestro Alliance plans to create its army by corrupting people to their cause with it.
CrushestroThe head of one of the villainous organizations bidding on Dr. Shankraft's displacement drive and one of the few who came in person rather than sending a representative.
Big "NO!": When Hereti Corp banishes Monicruel to another dimension.
The Starscream: Attempts to steal the Hereti Corp data for herself so she can gain influence over Crushestro. According to her plan, the data would give Crushestro control over the alliance, but she would control the data. She ultimately fails and is forced to cover up her involvement.
(Slaugh)teresaMonicruel's playful sister. She is highly skilled at espionage.
Was Once a Man: Before he got mutated into a pain loving mutant by the squid on a stick.
You Have Failed Me: Murders his chief of exports partially for telling everyone the secret ingredient he uses in his pina coladas. But mostly just because he wanted to reuse the execution device attached to him on Torg, rather than walk to a warehouse on the other side of the base.
Mad Scientist: Used to be one of these. But the Squid on a Stick decreased his intelligence when he was mutated.
Pragmatic Villainy: Pang wastes a lot of resources for stupid reasons. Saik is quick to point this out.
The Resenter: Feels he should lead the No-Fun mutants because he created the Squid on a Stick and Pang is totally incompetant, but everyone follows Pang's lead instead.
The Star Scream: He is a lot more competant than Pang, but doesn't have the charisma to get anyone to follow him. That doesn't stop him from scheming. Eventually, Pang gives command to him when he decides to flee the base. Pang comes to regret this.
Oceans Unmoving Characters
Oceans Unmoving Characters
CalixA remarkably bright boy for a leaf person, Calix is one of the few natives of Timeless Space rather than someone who has fallen out of the timestream. He was picked up by the Bloody Bun during a raid on his village, but instead of locking him below with his tribesmen, Bun-Bun promoted him to First Mate. According to his crew, that's because the Captain likes to know where the next mutiny is coming from. In actuality, it's because as a native, he wouldn't covet Technocon One, the only known way out of Timeless Space.
An Axe to Grind - Calix is extremely skilled with his twin axes. So much so that Bun-Bun deduces his people are not farmers, but warriors who happen to farm.
Deadpan Snarker - "Grandpa liked to smoke the purple mushrooms, didn't he?"
Loin Cloth - And it's made out of leaves. Yes, leaves. There's a reason Bun-Bun calls his tribe the Leaf People.
Too Dumb to Live - As Bun-Bun put it, his grand plan for freeing his people was essentially tossing a calculator to a group of cavemen and telling them to balance their budget.
Took a Level in Badass - After he stops caring so much for lives other than those dear to him, he becomes a lethal force.
Kada JansenBun-Bun's first mate for the tail end of "Oceans Unmoving" and the entirety of "Oceans Unmoving II", up until Bun-Bun escapes and she captains her own ship. Came from a different time period; was pulled into Timeless Space when Carib-Carriage One attempted to take off.
The Chosen One - she's the only one that can operate the map that leads to Teknokon One, the only ship that can enter and exit Timeless Space at will.
Cluster F-Bomb - becoming a pirate might have been a good career move for her, as she certainly already had the mouth of a sailor.
Unusual Euphemism - okay, so the "curse words" in question are "freg" and "splat", and occasionally combined to make the phrase "fregging splat". She still has what in her universe qualifies as a very foul mouth, as she can't seem to go more than two panels without using one of these words at least once (and that's probably generous).
Trapped in Another World - Everyone but Calix, and arguably him as well since he'd never been outside his village before.
Gods and Demigods
Gods and Demigods
Krohnus, God of TimeThe Mohkadun God of time, also known as Father Time. He is the king of the gods and responsible for guiding Fate as a means of preventing the world from being destroyed prematurely. For some reason hates the Dutch.
Anthropomorphic Personification: Of time. He created the web of fate to guide events and prevent the god of destruction from destroying worlds before their appointed time.
Deity of Human Origin: Though not technically human, he was once a mortal, somehow born with incredible knowledge of time. Pleased, The One ascended him into godhood to stop the god of destruction from destroying the god of creation's worlds prematurely. Khronos himself also lifted several other mortals into godhood to serve as role models against Kozoaku's influence.
God of Evil: He isn't the only one featured or even the most significant, but he rules the dimension of Hell.
Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He is this for the most part. He is terrified of scorpions, sired kittens while drunk, and is a frequent victim of Riff's pranks. The only significant amount of evil he has accomplished was the creation of THE EVIL, a litter of cute and unstoppable kittens.
The EvilTHE EVIL is a bunch of cute satanic kittens, biting, ripping and slashing through the population of Wispydale. It was revealed that the EVIL were bred by Satan, during the drunken party the satanic cult of Wispydale held for him. Any questions about the incident were answered by a "I do not want to talk about it." He left the cult in charge of feeding the kittens a bowl of milk every night, on pain of their destruction by the kitten.
The Antichrist: They are not the Antichrist, but they were sired during a drunken attempt to create him.
Complete Immortality: Seriously you can't kill these things, they tried. (And if you're wondering why it isn't just nigh invulnerable, please note i said KITTENS, not cats.)
Run or Die: If you don't have milk, running is your only chance of survival.
Weaksauce Weakness: Their only weaknesses are water and milk. Neither will hurt them, but they will avoid them. If they end up drinking milk, they are temporarily reduced to near harmless, if immortal kittens.
Tempest, God of FateThe Mohkadun God of Fate, also known as Uncle Time. He is Father Time's honorary brother and the reason Torg has Bun-Bun.
Anthropomorphic Personification: He is the God of Fate and is also in charge of Timeless Space, the buffer between each universe that keeps them self-contained.
Cloudcuckoolander: He has always been a little kooky. Though this seems to have only gotten worse over time.
Honorary Uncle: He isn't a blood relative of Khronos, but he is an honorary member of the family, and the fact that their jobs are closely related helps.
Not So Omniscient After All: As the God of Fate, he knows much about what passes in the world. He reassures his honorary niece that there have been no surprises thus far, with Fate being Fate. He proceeds to get completely blindsided when he notices that "Siphaniana" is actually Gwynn, and her thread is connected to all sorts of destabilizing things in the web, such as time travel and dimensional portals.
Power Tattoo: unknown if the spiral on his forehead, but it was seen on his T-shirt when he was the petshop owner.
SantaOne of the representatives of the holidays. He has a long running feud with Bun-bun
The Starscream: He, his band of mystics, and the Krigs summoned Kozoaku, bringing about the end of nearly all life on the planet. Krohnus gifted Lord Symachus and the last of the Krigs with Godhood in an effort to prevent this from ever happening again. But instead of being grateful, Lord Symachus noticed that there was tier of power above himself, and betrayed the entire world in a bid to kill and overthrow Krohnus.
Last of His Kind: He is the last of a tribe of violent barbarians called the Krig. All of them except for himself were wiped out, presumably due to summoning Kozoaku. Instead of going by his birth name, he called himself The Krig in honor of their legacy.
The (Ex Ex) Fate SpiderA spider that used to serve under Father Time, by managing the Web of Fate. He is eventually fired for sacrificing many lives to save the web and has since continued pulling the strands of fate as a freelancer.
For Want of a Nail: At first, he assumes there is little he can do to stop the coming destruction of the Web, because he can only influence little things. But then his apprentice points out that even little things can make a big difference.
There Are No Coincidences: The Web exists to guide fate and protect the world. The Fate Spider has often been the one responsible for causing Torg and his friends to be present when trouble goes down.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Created a scenario that caused quite a lot of people to die, because he believed it was the only way to save the web.
The Groundhog's Shadow is the patron of Groundhog's Day. It was originally a shade in Halloween before getting its own holiday. Bun-bun summoned it with the Book of E-Ville in hopes of removing his Easter patronage, but Torg accidentally bound it to Bun-bun with an ambient halogen light. It stayed like this till the holiday war where The shadow foolishly slew 2003 seconds before the year ended, forcing Bun-bun to use the Deus Ex Ovum to save his own life. The Deus Ex Ovum returned the shadow back to the original groundhog.
Always Someone Better: He enjoyed tormenting Bun-bun by singing annoying karaoke songs, but after several hours of Kiki joining in, even he got irritated by her karaoke.
The Prankster: likes scaring people by creating scary shadow images.
An ancient lost city that appears in a Time Travel arc in the ancient past. Mohkadun is the origin of several important artifacts, such as Zoe's camel necklace, Torg's god-killing sword, and the Book of E-Ville. It is also the origin of the pantheon of gods who most strongly impact the story.
Build Likean Egyptian: The closest parallel to their culture is Egypt. This is also true In-Universe, and those few archaeologists who even believe Mohkadun exists tend to look to Egypt for guidance in studying Mohkadun.
King FarahnThe King of mortals.
Anti-Villain: There is little doubt that he's a tyrannical jerk responsible for the deaths of many innocents. But his worst misdeeds were in response to Kron apparently driving his favorite wife mad.
Bullying a Dragon: He makes demands of Kozoaku, God of Destruction, to help him get revenge against Kron. Annoyed, Kozoaku summons him a god-killing sword to aid him in this task. Complete with a warrior of the Never dimension already wielding it intended to kill him. This conveniently fails, since Kozoaku summoned said warrior over a scorpion pit and said warrior has a phobia towards scorpions.
Revenge: His main motive after Khronos's son, Kron, placed a curse on his favorite wife and accidentally broke her mind.
Revenge Before Reason: As the son of the most important god of Mohkadun, Kron was out of King Farahn's reach, since Khronos wouldn't allow any of the mortals to harm him. At the traitorous god of Justice's recommendation, he began summoning Kozoaku, God of Destruction, to wreak his vengeance. Even though this would be guaranteed to seal the doom of his entire city.
Unwitting Pawn: The God of Justice promised to give him justice over Kron. But he was only using him as a pawn to summon Kozoaku and kill Kron's father, the Top God, Khronos.
KronA demigod and the son of Khronos.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He developed a crush on Queen Siphaniana, King Farahn's favorite wife, who led him on for Operation Jealousy. In order to sneak her out of the stables, he put a cursed necklace on her to transform her into a camel, so as to smuggle her into private. However, something went wrong with the necklace and it resulted in a "Freaky Friday" Flip with Gwynn. As a result, everyone thought that he had driven a beloved Queen mad, building up tensions between mortals and gods. Enraged, they tried to have him killed, but Khronos stepped in and prevented it. The God of Justice proceeded to take advantage of the situation by manipulating King Farahn's desire to avenge his beloved Queen and convinced the king to summon Kozoaku.
Stop Worshipping Me: His father believed that the gods should be above mankind to serve as role models. Kron believed that the gods should be below mankind in order to better serve them.
Queen SiphanianaKing Farahn's favorite wife and the first wearer of the camel necklace.
Curse: She was the first victim of a certain necklace made by one of Kronos's daughters. With a certain keyword, "shupid", the necklace would turn her into a camel, and with the other keyword, "kwi", she would change back. Kron placed the necklace on her to smuggle her out of the stables, but something went wrong and it resulted in a Mental Time Travel"Freaky Friday" Flip with Gwynn. With Gwynn, a foreigner who did not speak the local language, in control of Siphaniana's body, everyone believed the curse had driven her mad.
"Freaky Friday" Flip: Spends years as this, with her in Gwynn's body in the future and Gwynn in her body in the past.
Operation Jealousy: She was only one of King Farahn's many wives. In order to become King Farahn's favorite, she would do things to keep his attention trained on her. One of her tactics was to make him jealous. She played along with Kron's crush towards this end, but it ends up backfiring when he uses a cursed necklace to smuggle her into private.
Strange Minds Think Alike: Gwynn calls her the magical She-riff, because her inventions have the exact same unreliable tendencies and quirks as Riff's do. She also has the same enthusiasm for explosions.
Mad Scientist: Or at least, the magical equivalent thereof. She is responsible for the creation of several of the comic's most important artifacts, including the Book of E-Ville and the camel necklace among other things. She is implied to have conducted reckless and unethical experiments on mortals, much to her father's frustration.
Properly Paranoid: Suspects that Gwynn might not be Queen Siphaniana. Luckily, all you have to do is distract her by asking what one of her inventions does.
Scholar SocoOne of Mohkadun's scholars, who King Farahn assigned to treating Siphaniana's apparent madness.
The Chosen One: He was a "potential", a hero of the Fate Web chosen to protect it. In an older timeline, he invented the plan to defeat Kozoaku. He advised the godlings to steal the vowels in his true name and seal him in a scroll. Sadly, in the alternate timeline Gwynn ends up time travelling back to, her and K'Z'K's interference allows Kozoaku, God of Destruction, and the opponent the web was meant to defend against, to slay him easily. As a result, the Fate Web directs Gwynn to help fulfil his fate instead to put the timeline back on course.
Hypocritical Humor: Not knowing any better, he speaks Kron's name in the Great Hall of the Gods, something Khronos has forbidden in order to punish his son for causing so much trouble. When Gwynn enters the room and makes the same mistake, he sarcastically says "You dare mention Kron? You fool!"
Killed Off for Real: In the altered timeline Gwynn is summoned into, he gets killed off directly by Kozoaku.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He bragged about his plan to reimprison the God of Destruction in taverns, allowing the traitorous God of Justice to hear about it and forcing him to accelerate his plans. Had he kept his mouth shut, King Farahn would have been killed by the rebels before he could summon Kozoaku, the traitor god would have been forced to find a new pawn, and the plan to defeat Kozoaku would have been ready before Kozoaku could have had enough time to destroy Mohkadun.
Secret Keeper: Is keeping the secret that Gwynn's mind is in the queen's body and is actually from the future.
AngelaIntroduced as Dex's girlfriend, after his death in the KITTEN storyline (which traumatised her and left her with a fear of cats) she was briefly a Love Interest to Torg. Sluggy-Prime Angela has not been seen since "KITTEN II" (at the end of which she was left catatonic) but her 4U City Alternate Universe counterpart played a role in the revolution there.
Dr. Nana Avarre, "The Angsty Dentist"A creepy GothicDepraved Dentist. Dated Riff at one point. Her Alternate Universe counterparts have often featured: her Dimension of Lame version was all sweetness and light, her Dimension of Ghouls version was an ace fighter pilot but equally angsty, and her 4U City counterpart was almost immediately judgement-chuted for being insufficiently happy.
BertIntroduced as Torg's crotch-obsessed artist friend, he later moved into Brie Meighsaton House with the gang. He was badly wounded in the first "KITTEN" storyline and had to have a crotch transplant from a baboon, then was killed in "KITTEN II". However, his ghost remained tied to the house and he remained a character until the ghosts were released at the end of "Kesandru's Well".
Mix-and-Match Critters: After his crotch transplant was apparently baboon from the waist down. Riff and Torg caught a glimpse of him naked after the "clothes-eating evil-moths" incident and initially thought he was wearing 'the bottom half of a Wookiee costume' before realising the reality.
The Thing That Would Not Leave: Variation; at one point he says he's moving out of Brie Meighsaton House and stops paying rent, but as the others note, he doesn't actually stop hanging around the house.
Verbal Tic: "Crotch" and "Bah!" His ghost talked almost entirely in these due to some kind of verbal impediment (his actual thoughts are shown as being more erudite). Also using 'knave' as an insult.
Dr. Catherine CrabtreeOne of Dr. Schlock's former colleagues, she invented nanites designed to collect information on animals from within during animal testing, but ended up using them on herself to become the powerful Nanite Queen.
Assimilation Backfire: She can gain the knowledge of people by eating their brains...but when she tries it on Sam Sein she is infected with his stupidity, and when she tries it on Christmas Elves she is compelled to frolic everywhere singing "lolly la!"
Dropped a Bridge on Him: After a long buildup, is unceremoniously wiped out by Aylee's EMP. The abruptness of this is lampshaded.
Humiliation Conga: Repeatedly damaged both physically and mentally by Bun-bun's Home Alone style house traps (intended for Torg and the gang after Aylee erased his Baywatch tapes).
Man of a Thousand Faces: She at one point demonstrates the ability to shapeshift for this, but can't concentrate enough to do it after being infected with Sam's stupidity.
Kick the Dog: Actively hates animals and Kiki in particular.
DexA college friend of Zoe's she had a crush on, but it turned out that he was only interested in her because she worked for Dr Lorna at the time. Later appeared with his girlfriend Angela and was killed in the first KITTEN storyline.
For Want of a Nail: Him calling Zoe boring (below) is inadvertently responsible for the Storm Breaker saga, as it motivated her to join in one of Torg and Riff's crazy plans for once.
Freudian Slip: "I think you're very nice and boring, Zoe! I just said 'beautiful', right? 'Nice and beautiful'?"
"Freaky" FredIntroduced as a crazy member of the remedial group of cannibals in a course Aylee was sent on, his Sluggy-Prime version was eaten himself by the teacher at the end of it, but his Dimension of Lame version appeared years later and became a major character in "That Which Redeems".
Ax-Crazy: He's a member of a remedial group of cannibals. What part of that do you not understand?
Torg calls him one of the most disturbed individuals in the Dimension of Lame... because he used to fashion rice cakes in the shape of people and then eat them.
Despair Event Horizon: His Dimension of Lame counterpart induces it in Torg, as Fred is the most Ax-Crazy person Torg has met in the Dimension of Lame by its own standards, and still breaks down in a My God, What Have I Done? fashion after tapping a demon on the foot with a hammer.
Poor Communication Kills: They thought the wizard said most 'chased' woman in town when he said most chaste. and because of it the dragon coming to burn them all to cinder .
IsabellaIzzy/Isabella is the sister of the Minion Master, and had helped him design his base and keep it secret. She rescued the Minion Master from Bestseid with the help of Torg, Sasha, and Sam. She and Minion Master defected to Hereti-Corp, taking the location of Dr. Steve's base-lab with them.
Alternate Universe: Izzy's 4U City counterpart who is Alt-Riff's wife was introduced before her Sluggy-Prime version. Both turned out to be important to the plot, however.
KentDated Zoe a few times, and later the Angsty Dentist. A Jerkass with right-wing political views. His uncle is the vampire hunter Arminius Vambrey. His Sluggy-Prime version not been seen since 2004, but his Dimension of Lame counterpart (apparently a Granola Boy) was briefly seen after that.
Agent Scully: Takes skepticism to ridiculous degrees, convinced vampires are cosplayers or LARPers even when they're doing supernatural things right in front of him.
LeoZoe's onetime boyfriend who worked as a human cannonball. Walked out on the group after the Dimension of Sham-Pain incident when he was unable to cope with the weirdness. His Sluggy-Prime version has not been since then, but his 4U City counterpart has appeared and played a role in the resistance, then opened a coffee shop after the revolution.
Laser-Guided Karma: After walking out on Zoe after the Dimension of Sham-Pain incident (which involved Zoe, Riff and him putting on weight from demon-food that is impossible to ever lose) he was then involved in a cannon accident due to his extra weight having changed his trajectory.
The Minion Master / AnthonyIntroduced as a generic parody villain (or at least someone who wants to be) whom Bun-bun was renting out his Elaborate Underground Base to. His plan to Take Over the World was simply to recruit more and more people as his minions, which he could do because he is very skilled at erasing wanted people's identities from electronic systems and giving them new ones. This is said to be the only thing he is really good at. After Zoe and Riff were lost, Torg put together a team who went undercover as the Minion Master's minions and took part in the Research and Development Wars against Hereti-Corp, using his organisation as a front. However, Minion Master was eventually overthrown by Bestseid. He and his sister Izzy now work for Hereti-Corp.
Berserk Button - Two-anybody she sees as a rival for Torg's affections, and anyone associated with HeretiCorp
Chronic Villainy: Several of her arcs involve her trying to get some measure of control over herself and even try to become a better person, but invariably either Hereti-Corp's interference, her own incurably insane obsession with Torg, or simply her naturally brutal nature cause her to be unable to.
Clingy Jealous Girl - Clingy, and violently jealous, as demonstrated by the ice cream incident.
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She may be an extremely violent, borderline sociopath, but she does care for her dead sensei, Feng, as well as a mother and her daughter who were held prisoner by Hereti Corp.
Kick the Son of a Bitch: Her Override B-1 protocol causes her to instinctively kill every Hereticorp employee in the area.
A specific example was when she killed Monica, The Mole for the Cult of K'z'k.
Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter - Played with. She's the adopted daughter of a Mad Scientist, very beautiful, and in love with the hero, Torg. On the other hand, she only loves him because Steve told her to, which backfires on him when Bun-bun disables his control, making him unable to rescind the order.
Murder the Hypotenuse - Oasis has this as her default mode of dealing with any and all challengers for Torg's affection. She once tried this with Gwynn under the mistaken impression that Gwynn was ZoŽ. In the bROKEN arc, sees her finally identifying ZoŽ correctly... and believing Torg was "mistaken" when he said he didn't love ZoŽ.
Psychopathic Manchild: She's really messed up in a lot of ways, and these include a lack of maturity and a fondness of violence, the latter even after she decides to be a "hero".
Resurrective Immortality: She is implied to be one of these. It has yet to be made clear how she keeps showing up again after being shot, impaled, and blown up so many times. It's possible that this is just the result of her Healing Factor, but there is evidence it's not the case. It may have something to do with her pyrokinesis, as Oasis has been shown dying shortly after one of her "flare-ups", and appeared fine hours later. Perhaps a reference to phoenixes burning themselves up to be reborn.
Super Prototype: In this strip Kusari is confused why Hereti-Corp is so obsessed with retrieving Oasis when Kusari herself is said to have been made as an improved replacement, but Schlock claims there is an unspecified difference that makes Oasis valuable.
Tragic Monster: She never chose to be a violent, murderous, jealousYandere. Her current condition is a result of years of training, conditioning, and a form of brainwashing that can no longer be altered, changed, or removed.
Wild Card: She would often swing between being an antagonist and ally of the main cast.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: All she wants is for her one true love to return her love, and until he does, she'll slaughter everything in her path. She knows that she was essentially brainwashed by Steve Hereti into loving Torg, but can't help it anyway. This, coupled with her not knowing exactly what she is, is slowly driving her insane(er).
Yandere - Then again, how stable could a Robot/Undying Clone trained to be an assassin with a mind-control enforced love be?
Agent Brian RammerA government agent and Dr. Schlock's bastard son.
Conflict Ball: A couple of his counterparts in Alternate Universes suddenly pick fights with the protagonists for flimsy reasons. The way he can alternate between being helpful and an obstacle gets Lampshaded by Torg.
Death by Irony: He is killed on his unknowing father's orders thanks to being a coworker with a government agent hunting for Schlock.
Killed to Uphold the Masquerade: Right when he is about to report back to the government with pictures of Riff using a portal device to bring back Aylee, he gets assasinated by Kusari on Dr. Schlock's orders. Though played with somewhat, as it turns out Schlock only wanted the person he was meeting dead, had no idea Rammer was even going to be there and was totally unaware of the information Rammer had just acquired.
SashaOne of Riff's girlfriends who eagerly dove into the madness that was the cast's lives. Although her stay on the strip was relatively brief (less than two years), she is very much a fan favorite.
Gadgeteer Genius, with a dash of Wrench Wench, supposedly. Turns out that was just a cover story to get technology out of Riff and send it back to Hereti Corp. Anything she supposedly designed was actually created by Hereti Corp's R&D and sent back to her to reinforce her cover.
The Mole: Torg was effectively using her to spy on Hereti-Corp for him. Turns out all this time, she had been working for Hereti-Corp and was spying on him.
Dr. Irving SchlockA time traveler from an alternate timeline where K'Z'K took over the world. Originally a scientist who worked in the same lab as Dr. Crabtree, Dr. Schlock first appeared as a walk-on character administering cosmetic tests on Bun-bun, where it appears he lost his left eye and now has to wear an eye patch (comfirmed in a Broken chapter when he faces Frog without his eyeglasses), He is an expert in inflatable technology and alternates between a cowardly Anti-Hero and (mostly) (sym)pathetic villain.
Bad Future: Originates from one that was averted in part due to his efforts. And now seems to be sending the world on a path to a different one.
Big Bad: Pretty much evolved to this position after taking over Hereti-Corp, though he is also sharing the position and in conflict with an even more sinister Big Bad, K'Z'K.
Chekhov's Gunman: Started off as The Chew Toy for an early Sunday strip where he was constantly put through abuse by Bun-Bun. A few years later, he, or a version of him from a Bad Future, became a recurring character, and then he eventually became the Big Bad.
Cornered Rattlesnake: As his Heroic Bastard son, Agent Rammer puts it, whenever he is backed into a corner, he always pulls through. His most brilliant exploits usually come when he can no longer flee.
Heel-Face Revolving Door: He is frequently either Forced Into Evil or even intentionally antagonizes people out of paranoid fear for his own safety, but he also ends up helping the heroes quite a lot and ending up in alliances with them against mutual enemies.
I Did What I Had to Do: He does regret all the needless killing he has been involved in, but thanks to his incredible paranoia, he is willing to do anything to keep himself safe.
He has Oasis's teacher, Feng, murdered in an attempt to make a point to Oasis.
He tries to arrange Zoe and Riff's deaths to prevent them from interfering in his plans. Riff survives, but Zoe does not. Thankfully, they end up in an Alternate Universe so advanced that Riff is eventually able to bring her back.
His paranoia is so powerful, that he plans to create a thoroughly dystopian city and use a Kill Sat against every part of the world he can't conquer to prevent any risk of anyone killing him.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: Through a long series of backroom deals, he managed to take over Heriti-Corp in secret and is making more progress in their domination goal than the old management ever did.
Pragmatic Villain: When his paranoia isn't too badly out of control, he tends to be a lot more effective and pragmatic than other villains. This is a big contrast with Daedelus, a Card-Carrying Villain who was his predecessor in controlling Hereti Corp.
Properly Paranoid: His defining trait. He is extremely paranoid and leaves balloon doubles of himself all over. But not without good reason, as there have been a great number of bad guys that want to kill him. His paranoia is the only reason he is even still alive. Unfortunately, the efforts to which he is willing to go to protect himself can get out of hand.
Protagonist Journey To Villain: He started out as a Well-Intentioned Extremist who was hoping to prevent the Bad Future he came from and who served as an occasional, if reluctant, ally to the main cast. He always had his own agenda, though, and if he wasn't being forced to work for his enemies, then he was trying to avoid being killed by them. His attempts to preserve his own life led to him taking over Hereti-Corp. Now his enemies include his competitors all over the world and anyone else he suspects of conspiring against him, the main cast included.
Remote Body: Repeatedly escapes assassination or kidnap attempts through the use of inflatable decoys he can control.
Scars Are Forever: Bun-bun blinded him in one eye in his first appearance and Dr Schlock has appeared ever after with a black lens in his glasses. His Dimension of Lame counterpart has two good eyes due to the nonviolence of that dimension, while his 4U City counterpart has his eye repaired by the nanites.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: He has been running from threat after threat for his entire life and become extremely paranoid because of this. Ultimately, he is only trying to get enough power to make his enemies disappear so he can finally live in peace, but the extent to which he is willing to go to accomplish this has killed many innocents and endangers the entire world.
Sam SeinFormerly the cast's neighbor at the apartment complex, now a vampire Walking the Earth. He is the former owner of Kiki and still feels very protective of her. Has a crush on ZoŽ. Must steer clear of Riff, who tries to stake him whenever he spots him. His last name was shown in the sci-fi adventure, "Get Me A Proctologist".
The Fool: More often than not, he always gets out of trouble no worse for wear despite, or often because of, his complete stupidity. The most notable example is when he accidentally led some vampires who were chasing him into a vampire hunters convention.
Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: He's dedicated himself to "staying good" as a vamp and has saved the crew numerous times. Of course, he'll still gleefully drain non-lethal amounts of blood from hypnotized women and has become a threat to the group when his vampiric hunger overwhelms him.
Killed Off for Real:He gets eaten by Agent N'aaaw. All that the heroes were able to recover was his ribcage and head, which was not enough for Sam to regenerate.
Last of His Kind: The last Lysinda Circle vampire. Though as he's the last he has decided to rename the circle the 'Sam Cirkail Mamajama'.
Mind Manipulation: Though hilariously it works for everything except trying to make women find him attractive.
Super Loser: He may have the power of a vampire, but he's still the same sleazy, dim, lovable loser he was in life.
Nash Straw/Reynold StromAn Intrepid Reporter looking for his next big scoop in the secrets of Podunktown. In truth, he is a hitman/ bounty hunter. In his first appearance, he is after the bounty placed upon the mysterious vigilante who has destroyed the Canadian mob operations in Podunktown, who of course turns out to be Oasis. After killing Oasis with a sniper rifle and watching her subsequent revival, he joins up with Hereti corp, trading his information on Oasis in return for a position.Later on, when he felt that Hereti Corp's leadership was losing grip on reality, he betrayed them, stealing Oasis to cash in on her bounty and blowing up the Hereti Corp Headquarters.He was last seen working as a tracker for the K'Z'K Cult alongside N'aaaw, as one of their best field agents, despite not being demon-possessed.
Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He murders the woman who helped him track down Oasis. He later gains employment at Hereti Corp, but double crosses them to cash in Oasis's bounty and go work for the Cult of K'Z'K.
Intrepid Reporter: In his first appearance, he is trying to uncover the secrets of Podunktown, believing it will lead to his next big scoop. Three guesses how that ends up.
Spanner in the Works: He was basically this to Dr.Schlock's Triangle plan, stealing Oasis away just before he discovered the location of Dr.Steve's base camp, which would have allowed Schlock to awaken Oasis's full potential and bring her under his control.
Villainous Rescue: There are two cults dedicated to K'Z'K. The Release wants to destroy the world through the actual demon K'Z'K. In order to stop Zoe from fulfilling her destiny of defeating K'Z'K, The Release tries to murder her. But the Cult of K'Z'K merely use K'Z'K as a metaphor and are perfectly fine with bringing about the end themselves. They order Strum to protect her so they can use her as insurance to force Skippy's cooperation. He ends up sniping Qaboos just before he can kill Zoe.
SquishydodoA Black-Ops Christmas Elf that worked for Bun-bun till the Holiday Wars and thinks he is dead at the moment (due to Bun-bun wanting to lay low.)
The Cavalry: Did this in a way that wouldn't raise the suspicions of Alien Santa (Thus giving Bun-bun the tool needed to defeat him.)
Happily Married: With Slappyhoho, even having a son. Though it doesn't stop him getting involved in a drunken bet using a spy satellite to look into Hottiehothot's shower.
You Are in Command Now: He started out as third in command of a group of Black-Ops Christmas Elves who had abandoned Santa and gone freelance, rapidly rising to the top after Bun-bun threw both his superiors out of the window and Squishydodo decided to cooperate.
Arminius VambreyA Vampire Hunter and Kent's uncle. His Dimension of Lame counterpart was also briefly seen at the beginning of "That Which Redeems".
Sealed Evilinacan: Tries to do this with the kittens by keeping them fed with their Weaksauce Weakness; milk. Unfortunately, she did not count on an insane military commander clown messing things up. At great expense in human life, she eventually got it back under control though.
Jane/Zombie Head on a StickA cruel zombie who used to be one of Gwynn's coworkers.
