The Big Four
Henry "Hiccup" Haddock III/Night Fury
- Captain Ersatz: Night Fury stands as this universe's equivalent of both Iron Man and Batman. Like the both of them, Hiccup is rich with his own tech-based company they use as a front for their hero work. His knack for mechanical ingenuity (including his collection of robot armor and AI) mirrors that of Tony Stark, while his darker color-scheme, serious demeanor and tragic backstory parallels Batman.
- Composite Character: While Toothless is still a separate character, Hiccup and the dragon species "Night Fury" were otherwise unrelated.
- The Cowl: During his Terror Hero phase, Night Fury embodied this perfectly. Before Frost and Mavis calmed his temperament, Night Fury was known to be a just but rather brutal hero, frightening the civilians of Berk as much as the criminals.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Hiccup's troubled past with the death of his girlfriend Keiko left Hiccup to be a tragic and humorless superhero.
- Freudian Excuse: This was later rectified with the help of his friends, but has still left him afraid of romantic relationships, lest he has his heart broken again.
- Don't Celebrate Just Yet: After the Iron Giant destroyed the Giant Mothership, Hiccup was the only one not celebrating. He realizes they won the alien threat purely by luck, and that if Earth was going to survive, they will need a serious upgrade.
- Handicapped Badass: Hiccup is the leader of the Big Four, is a mechanics expert, is the smartest member of the team and has a prosthetic foot from an accident when he was younger.
- Heel Realization: Realized that his Terror Hero methods were counterproductive when he was unable to save a child in danger because the child was too afraid of him.
- Hollywood Nerd: Is smart enough to run a company, maintain a superhero identity, build advanced battle-armor, fully-functioning AI that can love, build strategy, and is considered handsome by most women he knows.
- Non-Powered Costumed Hero: While a genius, Hiccup himself does not actually have any powers, relying on his armor and tech to do the job for him.
- Powered Armor: While having no superpowers of his own Hiccup makes up for it by creating state of the art battle suits that grant him increased strength, endurance, flight, and energy blasts.
- Science Hero: Is the only member that does not use magic or is involved in magic in the slightest before Riley joined, relying on his Gadgeteer Genius exclusively.
- An Ice Person: Frost is a very powerful cyromancer.
- The Cape: In contrast to Night Fury. He is approachable, likes to wise-crack and is famous for his exploits with world-renowned hero group The Guardians.
- Clark Kenting: Despite the fact that Jack is never seen with him, play's Hockey and his public nick name is "Jack Frost", no one seems to piece it together that Jack and Frost are the same guy. Well, except for Night Fury, but he's supposed to be a genius.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Despite his light-hearted image, Jack's origins are no so easy. After sacrificing his life to save his sister, Moon Man gave his life to save Jack's, saving his life and granting him ice-based magic powers. His family thinks he's dead and Moon Man's apprentice PH has a particular grudge against him. It also does not help that PH is one of the highest ranking agents in the NSA.
- Jack Frost
- Just a Kid: Ronin's reaction when he meets him.
Rachel "Rapunzel" Punzel/Limelight
- Adaptational Superpower Change: In the original film Tangled, Rapunzel's magic hair could retain youth and heal injuries, the magic dying when the hair is cut. Here, she's girl-Superman with Medusa's hair.
- The Cape: The most appropriate example of this in the group, especially when compared to Archer and Night Fury. She is solar powered, her hair acts as a sort of Superman-esq cape and is considered the most approachable both socially and by the media, even inspiring her future ward Riley Andersen, AKA Spectrum, who inturn inspires a whole new generation of young heroes.
- Cuddle Bug
- Friend to All Children: Acts as a protective motherly-figure and eventual mentor to Riley Andersen.
- Girly Bruiser: Rapunzel Corona wears pink, loves cute things and models for fashion magazines, and yet Limelight is the strongest, fastest and most invulnerable member of the team.
- Green Aesop: Limelight is solar-powered. She's an eco-friendly heroine. Too much though can leave her hyperactive, impatient and with an expanded reserve of energy to burn through, as seen after she was exposed to the highest setting of Hiccup's Artificial sunlight chamber.
- Prehensile Hair: Apart from being able to heal injuries and curses, Limelight's hair can move as an extension of her body, good for incapacitating foes.
- Stern Teacher: While Limelight is normally sweet and loving, she can be strict when the situation calls for it, lecturing Spectrum when she does something careless, even grounding her and having her do chores when she goes against orders.
- Took a Level in Badass: Limelight can fly, can shake off a building falling on her without a scratch, can lift over 400 tons and can heal people afflicted with dark magic.
- Fallen Hero: After she puts on the Helm of Sparda, for as long as she wears the helmet, Merida becomes a ruthless war goddess that raises an army of skeletons with intentions of destroying the human world with war and conquest. Until the helmet is removed, that is.
- Fiery Redhead: Has a temper, which is easily utilized in her crime-fighting, showing that she is very passionate.
- The Cowl: In contrast to Limelight, though not nearly as much as Night Fury.
- Non-Powered Costumed Hero: Her magic comes from her bow. The rest is all skill.
- Powers via Possession: When she wears the Helmet of Sparda, Merida gains the powers of a war god. Unfortunately, it corrupts her mind, amplifying her aggression and giving her an unquenchable thirst for conquest and bloodshed.
- Pretty Princess Powerhouse: While being a princess in the film, here she is the CEO of her family's company, born with a silver-spoon in her mouth, and can still fight crime with no actual powers of her own.
- The Straightand Arrow Path
- Trick Arrow: Merida wields an arsenal of arrows ranging from taser, to napalm, to net, and more for almost any situation.
- Situational Sexuality: Chapters 9 and 10 of Merricupsmutdrabble has Merida interested in a threesome with her boyfriend Hiccup and his old friend Camicazi. They even have few moments where it is just her and Camicazi.
- Stun Guns: Is shown to keep one on hand when she uses it to take down Jive Turkey, the villain to ridiculous and harmless to actually pose any threat.
- Violently Protective Girlfriend: Merida's desire to protect Hiccup has given her the ability to harness the flames of her wisps several times.
Mavis Dracula/Calamity Bane
- The Cape: As a hero, Mavis can be considered "approachable", a favorite among the public. She decided to become a hero after saving a child that was too terrified of Night Fury for him to help, showing Night Fury the error of his methods.
- Dark and Troubled Past: After Johnny's family chases her away, Mavis lived starving on the streets, reluctantly keeping herself healthy off of squirrels and stray pets. She is mistaken for a monster (or a bad one, anyway) by Frost and Night Fury. Unfamiliar with the monster community, Fury was ready to "put her out of her misery" until Jack convinced him not to.
- Expy: In personality and mannerisms, she's a lot like Jessie.
- The author has even acknowledged this, saying the reason why he added a lot of those traits was because he found her original incarnation to be a Flat Character.
- Friendly Neighborhood Vampire
- No Sense of Personal Space: Less so than Limelight, but still prevalent.
- One of the Boys: Despite being a woman, due to her long-standing friendship with Jack and Hiccup, acts as though she is just "one of the guys" and can be very "unlady-like". This ranges from things like wanting to hi-five Hiccup that "he's getting laid", to joining a burping contest started by Jack.
- Weird West: Mavis Dracula/Calamity Bane is a vampire cowgirl super-heroine that uses wrestling moves against criminals.
- Adaptation Species Change: From dragon to genetically mutated dog-dragon.
- Big, Friendly Dog: To people he knows. Best shown when he greets Mavis by trying to lick her face.
- Cool Pet: Toothless is a mutant wolfdog/dragon hybrid. His DNA was spliced with dragon DNA after years of being Drago's test subject. His mutation grants him amazing abilites coupled with abilites granted to him by a special experiment done to save his life when his cells began to reject the dragon DNA.
- Combo Platter Powers
- Demoted to Extra: Compared to most fanfiction he's in, this version doesn't really have much to do aside from being "Hiccup's pet".
- Heroic Dog: Every classic nuclear-superhero team needs at least one kid and a pet.
- Loyal Animal Companion
- Mix-and-Match Critters
- Mysterious Past: It's never stated precisely where he came from.

- Berserk Button: Has developed a peeve whenever someone mocks her scarf.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Downplayed. She is upset when Hiro seemingly ignores her in favor of one of her female friends, her powers acting erratically as a result. She calms down when Hiro admits having no feelings for the friend.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Riley has become a favorite among readers and the author, Riley appearing more than any other secondary character, with her relationship with Hiro spawning its own fanfic and several chapters on Superhero Drabbles.
- Expy: Word of God states that her costume is based off of Lady Wifi and the Evillustrator from Miraculous Ladybug.
- Dude Magnet: Downplayed example. Riley has attracted the interest of Jordan, Dash Parr, and Hiro Hamada. Not half bad for an early teen.
- Fangirl: Being a hockey-player, she has a particular fondness for Jack (at first completely unaware of his secret double-life as a superhero). As a metahuman, she heavily idolizes Limelight and looks to her like a big sister, her strength and flight-based abilities being her favorite because of their similarities to Limelight's abilities.
- Girl of the Week: Ever since Spectrum became a public face, she became the only thing people talked about both online and in Riley's school. She even inspires younger citizens everywhere start making names for themselves as heroes, one of which being Tip Tucci in New York.
- Has Two Mommies: While Riley has her normal parents, Limelight acts as a second mother to her, doign things from taking care of her when she finds her on the streets, to grounding her and making her do chores when she goes against orders or endangers herself.
- Kid Hero: She becomes a member of the Hero Apprenticeship Program under the NSA after she steps in on a battle between Limelight and the Scientist that experimented on her.

- Psychic Children: She was captured by a secret organization trying to create super-soldiers, having kidnapped Riley and experimented on her. After being found by Limelight, she returns to her parents and are even given help in controlling her powers by PH and the NSA.
- Psychic Powers: Riley's powers are all psychic in nature, all based off of the emotions in her head from the film she originated from, her hair, eyes and the type of powers she uses depending on this. When she is happy, her hair and eyes are yellow and she can do telekinesis, which can allow her to fly and lift heavy objects. When sad, her eyes and hair turn blue and she can generate electricity. When angry, her hair and eyes turn red and she can set things on fire. When afraid, her hair and eyes turn purple and she can teleport. When disgusted, her eyes and hair turn green and causes the instinctual response in others to kick in, such as when she made a police officer vomit uncontrollably.
- Scarf of Asskicking: Her supersuit is equipped with a scarf that, like the rest of her suit, changes color based on which power she uses. It's also a literal source of asskicking, as it's length can be extended and she can control it with her telekinesis to wrap around opponents and swing them around, emulating her mentor's animated hair.
- Super Serum: Used on her to stimulate her DNA, granting her psychic powers.
- Tagalong Kid: As the official sidekick to Limelight, this makes her an honorary member to the Big Four, being the only underage member of the group
- They Would Cut You Up: Was kidnapped off of the street and put under inhumane experiments, giving her superpowers in an effort to turn her into a living weapon.
- Verbal Tic: Has a habit of - word-for-word - saying the same phrase when questioned about her feelings for Hiro.Riley: What!? No!? What!? No!? We're just friends! I do not like him like that! Gosh! Shut up! You're just crazy!

Director Rick Dicker
- Cool Old Guy: Compared to the General Failure of General Monger, Dicker actually knows how to handle certain situations with tact and sensitivity. This is best displayed with Riley Andersen, as he allows her and her parents the option to not be involved with their agency, and understands that Riley is an innocent child thrown into a dangerous side of the world.

- "Reading Is Cool" Aesop: If he simply read the Giant's full report, he probably would not have (but probably would have, given his Jerkass way of handling things) not sent his troops and monsters out to destroy the innocent giant, would not have had to get into a fight and waste time and tax-payed resources.

- Classy Cat-Burglar: Has a nasty habit of stealing things from cash to Haddock tech, all for the lulz. Sometimes she'll give it away, sometimes she'll keep it and sometimes even she'll give it back, only wanting Night Fury's attention.

Captain James Hook
Ruber the Baron
- Asshole Victim: Subverted, as the metahumans that attacked him where hired by him to strawman his dissenters.

- Fantastic Racism: Is very public about his bigoted views towards supers, having grown a sizable following as a result.
- I Did What I Had to Do: He hired a group of metahumans to attack his Anti-Supers Campaign, using the cops and Fantasia Unit to "protect" him, making it look like all of the terrible things he was saying was true.
- Jerkass Has a Point: While he is a hypocritical dickbag about it, taking his arguments too far, supers ''are'' dangerous in given situations, and a little regulation is needed to keep things from getting too bad.Ratcliffe: All these supers do is cause chaos! All they do is destroy! They need to be controlled or we're all doomed!
- Villain with Good Publicity: All illegal activities still have not been proven concretely. Every other terrible thing he does is his God-given right as an American, and no Big Government is going to stop him!
Beldam/The Other Mother
- Deal with the Devil: Infamous for this. Uses Jack and a Magically Binding Contract to wipe the Guardians from existence as a part of a plot to rule the world. Infact, the only thing powerful enough to break such a contract would be a Sorcerer Supreme.
- Blob Monster: Is composed of a malleable green slime.
- Anticlimax Boss: After Archer and Limelight defeat Judge Sludge and Destruction Worker, Jive Turkey surfaces. He gives a lame monologue about how weak they are compared to him (the heroes not even paying attention exactly to what he was saying), only to get taken down by Archer's garden-variety taser.

Luckily, Limelight shows up.

[i]f the lovely señorita is to be mine, I must first eliminate my competition[.] No hombre will stand between El Chico Malo and his woman... Prepare to die!
- Thinks Like a Romance Novel: Like various other characters his agenote , Chico developed a crush on Spectrum as soon as he saw her. Unlike Hiro however, his crush comes across as a bit hammy and over-dramatic. Not only does he arrive in San Francisco in supervillain garb and robots as to draw her out, but he winds up trying to kiss her during their first date, postulating in grand romantic Purple ProseChico: Porque it's what I've wanted to do since the day I fell in love you[.] All of this has been done out of my love for you, Spectrum[.]
Chico: Now then, besemos, let us kiss[.]
Riley: NO! LOVE!? Dude, I met you like an hour ago!

- Straw Critic: While Edna admits that Limelight makes a great role model, she goes on a rant how she thinks her costume is unappealing, saying that whoever make it should "have his head beaten in and locked up for crimes against the fashion." Ironically, she does not know that Rapunzel works as a super-model.
- Anvilicious: Especially when compared to Jack, subtlety would not be the right way to describe La Muerte. She sends a colorful mariachi band to deliver a message to Jack and Sally while in Jack's dark and quiet realm, openly embarasses him in front of Sally and is generally extroverted all around.
- Fisher King: La Muerte and the Land of the Remembered are both colorful, lively and inviting.
- Friends Are Chosen, Family Aren't: While they are on good terms, Jack is sometimes annoyed by La Muerte's forwardness, especially when introducing her to Sally.

What?
