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."
Griefer: In the Years of Yarncraft arc, he eventually gets bored with playing the game in the normal way and starts deriving sadistic pleasure by ruining the game for everyone else. This ultimately results in the end of the arc, as each member of the main cast uninstalls their copy of the game in frustration.
The Hero: Especially after his levelling up in badass.
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).
No One Gets Left Behind: Pulled this in the latest chapter, refusing to leave Sam if there was even the smallest chance he had survived.
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.
He is an ordained, meaning that he bears a fragment of Kozoaku's soul. If at any point Kozoaku stole a piece of your soul, a piece of his is left in its place. If the victim has children, then the soul fragment will be passed on to their first born child. Riff's soul fragment is one of the oldest, and originated from his distant ancestor, Lord Symachus, the corrupt Mohkadun God of Justice. This soul fragment is eventually returned to K'Z'K.
Khronus punished Lord Symachus for his treachery by cursing him with blindness. Khronus also ensured that all of his descendants would carry this curse for all time, which is the reason Riff always wears sunglasses. Fortunately for Riff, the curse has been sufficiently diluted that he can see, his eyes are just extremely sensitive.
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. This is ultimately revealed to be a Hereditary Curse from Khronus on his ancestor, Lord Symachus. The curse in question was intended to leave all of his descendants blind, but it has diluted over the generations to the point that Riff can see. His eyes simply happen to be very sensitive to light.
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.
The 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. She eventually defeats K'Z'K by throwing a spell egg to leave him as Sealed Evil in a Can again.
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. Technology in that city actually can heal her body, and has. Unfortunately, it didn't have a similar "snapshot" of her mind. She had a perfectly healthy body, but was left as a vegetable. She ultimately got better due to the results of Riff's amazing Batman Gambit. Of course she still had to find a way to explain her apparent death and two year absence.
K'Z'K plans to do this to her as revenge for her squishing his corporeal bug body. He intends to leave her alive as the Sole Survivor of her spark, making her experience the horror of losing her friends to a torturous death. And then he plans to do even worse.
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.
Heroic BSOD: Happens here when she has an epiphany on her entire situation and how she fell right into K'Z'K's hands. The friends she made in the past, Scholar Socho and Kron, were doomed before she ever met them, and her actions had no impact beyond giving K'Z'K the opportunity for escape. Realizing that it was All for Nothing, she awaits her impending demise with both acceptance and despair.
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: Possibly even the The Millstone. A lot of the problems the cast have had to deal with all came about as a result of her own impulsive and 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.
Powers via Possession: This turns out to have been the nature of her magic all along. When K'Z'K is finally free, her powers are gone.
Thinking Out Loud: After discovering Dunuloa's stash of spell eggs, Gwynn talks to herself about the fact that one of them probably contains a suitable spell for dealing with K'Z'K. K'Z'K proceeds to grab her and Lampshade how speaking your plans out loud is a bad idea.
A 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. Eventually revealed to be the Mohkadun god of power.
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 is ultimately confirmed to be Bun-bun. After getting into a fight with his future self and receiving a nasty hit to the head, Bun-bun forgot his past. 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.
When the Wayang Kulit confronted Bun-bun with his greatest fear, they showed him the death of his mother. And now, the weapon that did it has resurfaced.
Anthropomorphic Personification: Of power and strength. During the Holiday Wars arc, he briefly became the personification of several major holidays, which warped reality in various ways, such as replacing Thanksgiving turkeys with rabbits.
Arch-Enemy: With Santa, against whom he carries an ancient grudge and wants to see dead.
The Big Guy: In a small package he may be. But, Bun-bun packs a wallop that's well above his weight-class. And, he has claws on four paws, a flick-knife, a flame-thrower if he can get it, a Blood Knight attitude... and teeth.
Along with every single one of the other Mohkadun gods, Khronus casts him out. In his case, he is literally and quite unceremoniously given the boot, aimed at The Krig just to add insult to injury.
He has been thrown into Timeless Space. Twice.
Fluffy the Terrible: "Bun-bun" doesn't exactly scream "run for the hills" until you get to know him a bit.
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.
Hammerspace: Where he keeps his switchblade. On one occasion he Lampshades it, when fighting against Oasis who also carries a limitless supply of weaponry.
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).
There was also that bit with him and the sugarplum fairy.
I Was Just Passing Through: In the beginning, Bun-bun only ever helped for violent fun, or because his own selfish motivations coincided, and would gladly abandon the heroes to their doom the moment it was convenient. But as time goes on, his alleged motivations seem more and more like an excuse. In time, he eventually becomes a full fledged, if rather mean part of the team.
Karma Houdini: None of the main cast is strong or brave enough to attempt to punish Bun-bun for his many crimes.
Mad Libs Catch Phrase: He's called other characters 'Nerd-X' or 'X-Boy', such as in Oceans Unmoving calling Crazy Carver 'Nerd-Goat' and Calix 'Leaf-Boy'.
Malicious Misnaming: 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'.
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. It isn't until the Mohkadun arc that his story is finally revealed.
Older Than He Looks?: Speculated in-universe and ultimately confirmed. 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.
Fish 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.
Dead All Along: One of her forms was, for all intents and purposes, undead, but she grew out of it with her next form.
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.
The Voiceless: After bROKEN, she was stuck recovering from a neck injury delivered by Oasis.
Wing Pull: Most of Aylee's forms are capable of flight, even when it's not immediately obvious.
Formerly 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.
One-Hit Kill: A single scratch is enough to kill even the most powerful beings in the setting, regardless of their defences. The Demon King of the Dimension of Pain is the only entity in the entire story that has ever survived, and even he was permanently crippled.
Powered by a Forsaken Child: The sword doesn't consider itself to be either good or evil, but it does require the blood of the innocent to power it. Blood can presumably be donated willingly, but it has almost never been so in practice. It has almost always been taken from the corpses of those already dead, or even by killing them directly.
Talking Weapon: The sword is sentient, and when its powers are unlocked by the blood, it is able to speak.
One 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.
Introduced 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. 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 Hereti-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.
Wild Card: He regularly alternates between being an ally and enemy of the main cast.
Jane/Zombie Head on a Stick
A cruel zombie who used to be one of Gwynn's coworkers.
Asshole Victim: After getting reduced to Z.H.O.A.S., she has been subjugated to all sorts of abuse, but needless to say, she probably deserves it.
Fate Worse than Death: After Gwynn gets revenge against her, her head ultimately falls off her body and she is later found by Torg. Torg attaches her head to a stick and uses her for his usual pranks. She has been subjugated to all sorts of abuse and begged for a Mercy Kill.
Our Zombies Are Different: Her variety of zombie is created through a complex magic ritual and can't spread by bites or anything of that nature. In fact, they aren't really even undead, just magically altered. They regenerate whatever they eat, and thus need to eat brains to maintain their intelligence.
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.
Viral Transformation: The setting's backstory heavily implies that most of the "demons" either were or are descended from people who were corrupted by the Spear of Callmadar. The local God of Evil is likely the only natural demon in their realm. Ironically they also suffered what one could view as a Viral purification for a while.
The Demon King
The Demon King
The ruler of the Dimension of Pain.
Bigger Bad: He has very little to do with the plot beyond the backstory. His only impact on the story is to fight Torg while Torg tries to escape the Dimension of Pain with the Goddess of Goodness.
Scars Are Forever: After receiving a 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 Goodness
The Goddess of Goodness
The 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.
A demon lord from the Dimension of Pain and a recurring villain in the strip.
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.
Unexpected Successor: As revealed in his backstory Reak accidentally killed the previous Demon Lord, allowing Horribus to take his place.
Villainous Breakdown: Caused by his obsession with Torg. Didn't help that he was Uozin's assistant when he was exiled to the surface of the dimension of pain, case in point 
You Have Failed Me: 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.
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.
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.
One of Hereti Corp's executives. Likes to goof around a lot, much to Daedelus's annoyance.
Oasis'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.
A 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.
Was 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.
Used 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.
The Cult of K'Z'K
Kozoaku, God of Destruction/K'Z'K the Vowelless/Poopy Pants
The 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.
Batman Gambit: K'Z'K's plan to break free of his prison inside of Gwynn relied on her stupidly wearing the cursed camel necklace, developing a crush on Kron, and manipulating Tempest, things K'Z'K had been specifically waiting for her to do.
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.
Krohnus has attempted to stop Kozoaku many times, but has only ever succeeded in delaying him, and always at great cost.
When Torg asks Chaz if it is capable of killing K'Z'K when powered up, Chaz compares the theoretical result to ripping the ending out of a book. It is eventually revealed that though K'Z'K brings about extinction events, killing K'Z'K would cause a Reality-Breaking Paradox, destroying the world completely and permanently. And this is exactly what is fated to happen.
Complete Immortality: Kozoaku can be sealed, weakened, or even shattered. But everything has an end, and as the Anthropomorphic Personification of destruction, and part of the Vicious Cycle of creation and destruction, the power K'Z'K represents can never be completely gone and will always return eventually. Or at least, so Wilden thinks. It turns out K'Z'K can be destroyed, and the result would bring the universe to its final end.
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.
Just Toying with Them: Despite having enough power to destroy the world, he tends to toy with his opponents and play along with the action around him for his entertainment instead of seizing his desires immediately.
Laser-Guided Amnesia: K'Z'K erases the future knowledge his past self, Kozoaku, obtained from him to ensure a Stable Time Loop instead of an Alternate Universe where K'Z'K would remain trapped. Kozoaku is quite grateful, since being betrayed by his own future self makes him really annoyed with himself.
Laughably Evil: For a demon who's bent on world domination and destruction, he's very clownish and jocular.
Laughing Mad: In the Mohkadun arc in an altered past, he possesses Gwynn!Siphaniana's body and indulges in hysterical laughter, because of the success of his Evil Plan.
Phlebotinum Killed the Dinosaurs: At least twice. He might have wiped out one batch with a Zombie Apocalypse, and probably did wipe out the last major batch with a meteor. Nevertheless, at least one population of dinosaurs remains alive in a cave. For now, though Khronus plans otherwise since they are a danger due to being Immune to Fate.
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.
You Can See Me?: In the altered timeline Gwynn ends up in, Kozoaku wanted to see the action. K'Z'K, Kozoaku's future self, warned him against it, because his enemies planned on sealing him away, but Kozoaku resisted. K'Z'K then offered to teach him a spell that would allow him to enter an invisible spirit form. But he later turns out to have been lying and gleefully watches as his past Alternate Self gets sealed away into King Farahn.
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.
A 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.
The mysterious and mortal founder of the Cult of K'Z'K.
Gender Misdirection: The cult's leader has long been hinted to be a man. But Skippy later learns that despite the rumors, she is actually a woman.
Playing Both Sides: She and Wilcott Wilden have been pitting the Cult of K'Z'K and The Release against one another to keep mortals in charge of the demons. This eventually backfires due to Chilus's ambitions.
A wasp-like demon and the leader of the demonic faction of the Cult of K'Z'K. She became part of the cult fifty years ago, which included 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.She eventually takes part in K'Z'K's successful resurrection, but seems to have her own conflicting interests.
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.
Murder Is the Best Solution: She was willing to kill her own people to see how to activate Chaz's "kill anything" ability. Luckily for everyone involved, none of the people she attacked were innocent (not even the hosts of the demons; they were volunteers), so Chaz was not empowered by their blood.
The Starscream: It is implied that she wants to use Zoe and the demon killing sword to kill K'Z'K so as to become top dog. And if Zoe ends up killed instead, then it will look like she is a devoted disciple. When K'Z'K ends up sealed away again, her face is actually smiling. She expresses a desire to claim the book into which he is sealed and lies about her progress to the mortal leader of the cult.
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.
The Paralyzer: is able to inject paralyzing venom via her antenna in this comic
Villainous Rescue: Saves Zoe from Skip, due to her boss wanting to keep the option to eliminate K'Z'K on the table.
First 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.
Riff's father, an archaeologist specializing in the history of Mohkadun and a cultist of The Release.
Adventurer Archaeologist: He studies the civilization of Mohkadun and has had to dodge all sorts of monsters in his line of work.
Affably Evil: Even after his associations with K'Z'K were revealed, he still maintains a friendly demeanor, wanting Torg and Zoe to at least make their peace with each other before killing them.
Apologetic Attacker: He decides to murder Zoe and Torg to prevent Zoe from defeating K'Z'K. He says that he could have murdered them in their sleep, but felt he owed them a moment to make their peace. He also apologizes to one of his slaves before murdering him via backstabbing in order to remove a communication device he planted in his body via surgery.
Archnemesis Dad: He is Riff's father, and a cultist of The Release, who wants to unleash K'Z'K and destroy the world. He reveals his treachery by drugging Riff and his friends. He then tries to murder Zoe to stop her from continuing her destiny of stopping K'Z'K from ending the world prematurely.
Cool Old Guy: He's a smart and resourceful archeologist who has what it takes to help the gang, and gets along quite swimmingly with everyone. Torg even refers to him as "Best 'Best Friends Dad Ever.'" Until it's revealed that he's really been trying to destroy the world.
Don't Make Me Destroy You: Skippy is highly irritated with the way Wilcott has been pulling his strings and starts trying to strangle him. Wilcott tells him these exact words.
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He claims to Torg that helping his son is the entire reason he is trying to destroy the world. Gwynn speculates that he fell for K'Z'K's lies about keeping the family of the one to release him safe.
Exact Words: He tells Riff that he has been unable to contact him for all these years because he spent all that time in a Tunisian prison. What he neglects to mention is that he was the warden, and his prisoners included kidnap victims.
Genre Blindness: He apparently didn't anticipate the possibility that a demon might not honor his promises and took the scam that was K'Z'K's scroll at its word. As part of the contract on K'Z'K's scroll, the family of the one to release him would supposedly be kept safe from K'Z'K. But K'Z'K only half-heartedly lives up to his end of the bargain and mostly just plays along. When Riff refuses to stand aside, K'Z'K gleefully moves in to kill Riff first.
Geometric Magic: He knows how to draw spell circles that prevent demons from noticing those inside.
Hereditary Curse: He inherited an ancient curse of blindness, but not to the same degree as his ancestor or his son, meaning that he does not have to wear Cool Shades all the time.
In the Back: He murders one of his slaves, Darryl, by backstabbing him.
Omnicidal Maniac: He is part of Skippy's K'Z'K cult, known as The Release, and aims to destroy the world on his own terms for what he describes as "very specific reasons".
Playing Both Sides: Wilcott Wilden and Tombsy have been pitting the Cult of K'Z'K and The Release against one another to keep mortals in charge of the demons. This eventually backfires due to Chilus's ambitions.
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.
The 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 Starscream: 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
A 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.
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.
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.
Bun-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).
The 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.
All-Powerful Bystander: After the murder of his son and wife, he completely ceases to directly involve himself in the affairs of mortals, only concerning himself with ensuring that time remains stable. He is completely indifferent even to Bun-bun imprisoning one of his daughters for the rest of eternity. And though it is his job to safeguard the universe, he has become so indifferent to mankind in general that he is willing to let the tangle in the Fate Web kill K'Z'K, causing a Reality-Breaking Paradox that will end all of existence.
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. For a time, he left Tempest in charge of Fate, but took it back under his own management due to Tempest's failings.
Cruel Mercy: Instead of merely killing him, he curses Lord Symachus with a long and painful life for his treachery. He also exiles his honorary brother to Timeless Space for the rest of eternity as punishment for his failings.
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 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 former 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 was originally the God of Fate, but ends up fired from that job for his failings. He is then put in charge of Timeless Space, a buffer Khronus creates to keep the universe self-contained and imprison those who abuse time and space. Khronus tasks him with guarding the universe against outside incursions as well as maintaining it.
Cloudcuckoolander: He has always been a little kooky. Though this has only gotten worse over time, likely due to his punishment by Khronus.
The Exile: As punishment for failing in his duties in overseeing the Web of Fate, Khronus sends him into Timeless Space for the rest of eternity. He claims it isn't a banishment, just an appointment, except that he forbids Tempest from ever coming back to visit.
Gambit Pileup: After discovering K'Z'K's tampering with the Fate Web, gathering every "ordained" in one spot, he desperately tries to oppose him by gathering every single potential in the same spot, resulting in this.
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. A number of things Immune to Fate also manage to sneak into the world under his watch, including the god killing sword, Chaz, which is why Khronus blames him for the death of his wife and son.
Omnicidal Maniac: Fate Spider Carl suspects that he deliberately caused the tangle in the Fate Web, an event that will cause the death of K'Z'K and bring a Reality-Breaking Paradox, putting the universe to a permanent end.
Power Tattoo: Unknown if the spiral on his forehead, but it was seen on his T-shirt when he was the petshop owner.
Blessed with Suck: As a Holiday, he remains The Ageless, has some limited powers, and has an entire company of elves as employees. On the other hand, what is termed as the "Holiday Curse" places limits on what he can do with his divinity and manifests itself by leaving Santa stuck in Time Stands Still once a year until all the presents are delivered.
Depower: He was once a full fledged god, but at some point gets reduced to a holiday. While he still retains some power, he is reduced from immortal to The Ageless.
The Exile: He is banished for allowing Khronus's children to endanger themselves in their efforts to save the world.
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, Gaul, he called himself The Krig to remind himself of their violent ways.
Oh My Gods!: He says "Oh my us!" in response to seeing the bodies of Lady Brehda and Kron.
Time Stands Still: The Holiday Curse manifests itself in this fashion during Christmas until all the presents are delivered. But as the alien Santa discovers, it is also possible for him to activate it under normal circumstances, which can be useful in combat.
The Virus: An alien race with plans to invade the Earth had a Weaksauce Weakness to Nerf guns. As a toy manufacturer, Santa had a large supply, making the aliens believe he was a weapons provider. As part of their first strike, they infected him with their DNA, essentially replacing him with one of their own agents. Eventually, the alien Santa was murdered by Bun-bun, but ended up resurrected as himself at the conclusion of the Holiday War arc.
Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Justice, supposedly. He turns out to be corrupt and helps summon Kozoaku, the God of Destruction in an attempt to remove Khronus. Khronus eventually realizes that choosing Symachus for this position was a horrible mistake, and strips him of his divinity.
Curse: As punishment for his betrayal, Khronus stripped him of his divinity, made him withered and feeble, left him with a Hereditary Curse of blindness, and weaved the Fate Web to ensure he would live a painful and never-ending life.
Depower: Khronus strips him of his divinity as punishment for his crimes.
Devil in Plain Sight: He has a tendency to turn away and smile with his eyes covered in a sinister looking manner. He claims its a nervous habit.
The Exile: Among other things, Khronus sends him away.
Flying Dutchman: Khronus stripped him of his divinity, but legend claims he left him immortal to increase his suffering as punishment for his crimes. It further states that his wife was later driven mad by K'Z'K and fled out into the desert, and that Symachus would spend the rest of eternity trying to find her, though in actuality, he fled when he and his wife were caught trying to summon K'Z'K to cure their son's eyesight and she ended up dead.
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.
Weak-Willed: Kozoaku reveals that he can control those who are both evil and weak of soul. Lord Symachus qualifies, and Kozoaku makes him punch himself in the face.
Fate Spider Carl
Carl Wonkstein, The (Ex Ex) Fate Spider
A 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.
Fate Spider Googol
Googol, The First Fate Spider
The original Fate Spider, who once served under Tempest.
Accidental Misnaming: He refers to each of his successors as "Sally" to maintain consistency, since he has had one heck of a hectic "week" what with spending most of it in stasis.
Sealed Good in a Can: He has been awakening every 50 years out of stasis for 1-2 hours to check how things are going in an attempt to thwart the Destroyer's long term plans.
There Are No Coincidences: He has been providing subtle guidance to the heroes. Among other things, he is responsible for the convenient placement of a basket of magic eggs that allowed them to prevail.
The Pumpkin King
Stiks, The Pumpkin King
The current patron of Halloween, whom the other holidays chose as Basphomy's replacement due to his harmlessness.
Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Halloween. Under his supervision, Halloween is no longer a holiday of true fear, but one in jest, much to its original patron, Basphomy's displeasure.
Back from the Dead: Bun-bun, with Basphomy's help, managed to murder him to steal his power. But thanks to a very literal Deus ex Machina, he is eventually brought back.
Become a Real Boy: Lonely, an incompetent puppet maker wished his greatest masterpiece, Stiks, to life. To his amazement, the moon twin, Dunuloa, granted his wish and he raised Stiks as a son. The townspeople were terrified of Stiks and chased him away. Saddened, he wanted to become a real boy. Dunuloa, who had become the cruel creature known as Basphomy, offered to grant him this wish, at a price.
Faustian Rebellion: Basphomy gave him flesh, but only temporarily. She said that if he wished to keep her gift, he would have to take it by murdering his "father". But instead, he carved a pumpkin for his head, enraging her. The other holidays, who were growing fearful of Basphomy's ambition, decided he would make a perfect replacement.
Dunuloa, the Moon Twin/Basphomy
A demigod and one of Khronos's daughters. She became the patron of Halloween and spread terror and fear, but was eventually replaced by the Pumpkin King.
Face-Heel Turn: She was always rather unstable, but after her brother and mother were murdered by a mortal, she felt that the gods had been too kind to them. To ensure they knew their place, she decided to become a curse on humankind and show them the true meaning of fear, as the patron of a nightmarish holiday.
The Fog of Ages: As Basphomy, she recalls little of her past and has to struggle to remember any of it.
Kick the Dog: She decided to punish all of humanity for King Farahn's murder of her mother, starting with the refugees of Mohkadun. She demanded that they guard the scroll sealing K'Z'K, saying that if mankind could not maintain the prison, then they all deserved to die. The leader of the refugees was left with no choice but to accept. As mere mortals, they were vulnerable to K'Z'K's presence, and K'Z'K gave them the choice between setting him free or being Driven to Madness one by one and wandering the desert until most of them were dead. Dunuloa was fully counting on this to happen, and hoped they would ultimately fail. Refugee after refugee went mad and tried to summon K'Z'K, forcing their leader to kill them. Dunuloa only relented after their leader was forced to kill Siphaniana, finally appeased by the amount of blood on his hands.
Mad Scientist: She was formerly one of these, 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. She drops the scientist gig after becoming Basphomy.
Properly Paranoid: Suspected that Gwynn might not be Queen Siphaniana. Luckily, all Gwynn had to do is distract her by asking what one of her inventions does.
Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: She betrayed the Pumpkin King in hope of recovering her position as patron of Halloween. But when Bun-bun came to enjoy the power of being patron himself, he realized she would betray him. He rewarded her aid by allowing her to torment the world as she liked. But only once a year, with the rest of it spent imprisoned in the obsidian cage.
Sealed Evil in a Can: Her ultimate fate, and ironically enough by another evil doer. Bun-bun imprisons her in the obsidian cage for the rest of eternity save once a year on Halloween, to ensure she doesn't backstab him the way she backstabbed the Pumpkin King.
Sibling Yin-Yang: With her twin sister, Rana. She was called the moon twin where her sister was called the sun twin. She is also considerably less stable and empathetic than her sister.
The Star Scream: The other holidays were terrified of her and voted the Pumpkin King in as her replacement. She always kept a hammer ready in case she ever got a good opportunity to usurp him, and eventually sided with Bun-bun.
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.
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.
The King of the ancient city of Mohkadun.
Anti-Villain: There is little doubt that he was a tyrannical jerk responsible for the deaths of many innocents. But his worst misdeeds were in response to Kron placing a curse on his favorite wife, and were goaded on by the manipulations of said wife and the evil god of justice, Lord Symachus.
Apologetic Attacker: He tells Krohnus that he had no quarrel with his wife, Brehda, but justifies killing her as defending himself against the forbidden magic she used against him to avenge her son.
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, Satan, has a phobia towards scorpions.
Clingy Macguffin: In the present era, he always remains close by to Gwynn, who he loves, thus foiling any attempts to remove the Book of E-ville that he is still sealed inside of.
If I Can't Have You: In the altered timeline Gwynn ends up in, Queen Siphaniana was seemingly driven mad by a cursed camel necklace. In actuality, she experienced a Mental Time Travel"Freaky Friday" Flip with Gwynn. While Queen Siphaniana loved her husband and manipulated him to remain his favorite wife, Gwynn hated King Farahn, considering him a misogynist, and greatly preferred Kron. King Farahn eventually lost patience with his wife's apparent madness and demanded she declare her love for him on pain of death. Gwynn!Siphaniana repeatedly refused. Upon being denied after what he claimed to be her final chance, he finds himself unable to go through with it and starts weeping.
Kill the God: His main goal was to get revenge against Kron for placing his favorite wife under a curse and seducing her away. He ultimately succeeds and ends up killing Kron's mother as well when she tries to avenge her son.
Oh Crap: Starts getting nervous as Dunuloa seals him away into a scroll.
Powers via Possession: After Kozoaku is forced to possess him, King Farahn remarks on the awesome power he feels. Shortly before both of them are sealed away into a scroll. By extension, he has shared these same powers with Gwynn.
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.
Sealed Badass in a Can: In order to defeat Kozoaku, Dunuloa forced Kozoaku to use Demonic Possession on King Farahn and sealed Farahn himself into a scroll that would later be bound into the Book of E-ville. As far as morality is concerned, he was an antagonist, but is currently on the side of Gwynn.
Taking Up The Mantle: Kron adopted the diamond as his symbol, to represent the pyramid of mankind over the pyramid of the gods and the fact that he felt the gods should serve mortals. In her final moments of life, King Farahn's favorite wife, Siphaniana, chided Kron over this, believing him unworthy of his symbol. She felt that the diamond rightfully belonged to King Farahn, and King Farahn would eventually adopt it as his own.
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.
Wrong Name Outburst: Despite having used Gwynn's name before, he calls her Siphaniana when trying to protect her from K'Z'K.
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. In the original timeline, Siphaniana manipulated her husband's jealousy. In the altered timeline Gwynn ends up in, K'Z'K's manipulations result in a Mental Timetravel"Freaky Friday" Flip with Gwynn. Either way, everyone thought that he had placed a beloved Queen under a terrible curse, 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.
King Farahn's favorite wife and the first wearer of the camel necklace.
Break the Haughty: She was the favorite wife of the king of the most important city in the world and took great pride in this fact, looking down on the peasants. She was also skilled at wrapping men around her finger. But in the end, her own petty manipulations brought about the downfall of her entire kingdom, and while she survived, she was reduced to a nobody.
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.
Driven to Madness: In the altered past Gwynn ended up in, the people of Mohkadun believed this to have happened to her because of a curse. It happens for real long after the fall of Mohkadun, due to her longing for her husband.
"Freaky Friday" Flip: Spends years as this, with her in Gwynn's body in the future and Gwynn in her body in the past.
Killed Off for Real: She tried to release her husband from the scroll he was sealed in. Unfortunately, this also would have unleashed K'Z'K as well, and as a result, Maloufo was forced to kill her.
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. In the original timeline, it ended up backfiring when the king was manipulated into summoning Kozoaku and ended up sealed in the Book of E-ville. In the altered timeline, it ends up backfiring when K'Z'K's interference causes a Mental Time Travel"Freaky Friday" Flip with Gwynn.
One 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 original timeline, he was killed off by Kozoaku towards the endgame. In the altered timeline Gwynn is summoned into, he gets killed off directly by Kozoaku a bit earlier.
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.
Introduced 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.
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.
The Unintelligible: Due to an overuse of incomprehensible Future Slang supposedly, though in actuality, future Schlock can't understand him any better.
Dr. Catherine Crabtree
One 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).
Kick the Dog: Actively hates animals and Kiki in particular.
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.
Lethal Chef - Don't come to her Survivor Night when she tries making new mixed drinks.
A 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'?"
Introduced 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.
Izzy/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.
Dated 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.
Zoe'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.
Introduced 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.
Face-Heel Turn: Well, from a largely In Name Only villain to one who works for Hereti-Corp, though he and Izzy only went there because they saw it as their only choice.
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.
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.
Knight of Cerebus: Though not first non-comedic threat the main characters ever faced (she was first introduced in the midst of a slew of recurring storyline introductions, and her intro was still fairly humorous), it is through Oasis that most of the comic's darkest points were introduced (which led into one of the comic's largest Myth Arcs, and her storylines tend to be the grimmer, grounded and serious arcs where the comedy stops - only starting again in earnest once she's gone. It doesn't help that out of all of the other main recurring villains - who tend to be hammy and card carrying - Oasis is the least humorous even in a Black Humor sense, her insanity is played very straight, and she is rarely treated with anything but outright terror by the heroes.
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.
Nominal Hero: In her sanest incarnation yet, she stays in a small town learning to control herself under the tutelage of a sensei. During this time, she plays vigilante - in the sense that she makes anyone who breaks the law around her extremely dead no matter how harmless or deserving of death they actually are. Her sociopathic approach to killing others freaks out her host family, and her sensei even admits that just because she's killing criminals it doesn't make her any better, necessarily - rather that because she knows nothing but how to kill, it's better at least that she learns to direct that towards bad people. This works... somewhat... but ultimately doesn't last - and Bun-bun has a bit of fun deconstructing her fragile "never hurt the innocent" attempts the next time they meet.
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 Rammer
A government agent.
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.
Nash Straw/Reynold Strom
An 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.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. After learning that the Cult of K'Z'K intents to destroy the world, he starts contemplating how to sabotage them.
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.
Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Very narrowly avoids becoming this. Earlier, he overheard that killing Gwynn's body would be enough to stop K'Z'K. But by the time he tries it, that information is out of date and would have only hurt the matter. Fortunately, Bun-bun saves Gwynn's life by knocking off his aim, allowing the bullet to merely graze her.
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.
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.
A Vampire Hunter and Kent's uncle. His Dimension of Lame counterpart was also briefly seen at the beginning of "That Which Redeems".
Currently taking care of the EVIL so it doesn't run rampant.
Sealed Evil in a Can: 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.
