!Dave's Group

[[folder:In General]]

* CanonForeigner: They have no counterpart in the comics so far.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In ''The Walking Dead Social Game'' it is revealed that this group calls itself [[http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/The_Living The Living.]]
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: They introduce the concept that, in the middle of a global ZombieApocalypse, other people are also a genuine threat.


[[caption-width-right:300:''"...ain't nobody's hands clean in what's left of this world."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Michael Raymond-James

A survivor from Philadelphia, who traveled south with his friend Tony, and is a seemingly polite guy. Dave met Rick, Glenn, and Hershel in a bar near the farm, and after they refused to allow him and Tony to join them, he went for his gun to shoot them. Rick responded by putting a bullet through his head and killing Tony as well.
* BiggerBad: His appearance rocks Rick's group to the core, as noted in KnightOfCerebus. It's the threat of his much larger group that becomes a driving force behind the conflict over what to do with Randall for the rest of season two.
* BoomHeadshot: He was slower at the quick draw than Rick.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* DeadpanSnarker: Most of his lines are snarky attempts to get Rick and the others to open up.
* GoodCopBadCop: He's the Good Cop to Tony's Bad Cop. He's polite and talkative, putting Rick, Hershel, and Glenn at their ease. Glenn buys it. Rick and Hershel don't.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He was extremely polite in his conversation with Rick, Glenn, and Hershel, but the entire time something seems off about him; he just keeps pushing at Rick's stonewall responses. After Rick refuses repeatedly to take Dave and Tony to their camp, he reveals his true colors and goes for his gun.
* KnightOfCerebus: The series is already really dark, but Dave's arrival makes it clear that walkers are not the only thing the survivors have to worry about.
* NotUsingTheZWord: He refers to them as "Lamebrains", although he admits that "walkers" is a better name after being told that's the name for them that Rick's group uses.
* PermaStubble: Has a trimmed BeardOfEvil-esque one.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Dies in his debut episode not five minutes after being introduced.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Aaron Munoz

Dave's fatter friend who traveled with him from Philadelphia, Tony is a lot ruder than Dave. He was killed alongside Dave by Rick when they attempted to force him to reveal where his camp was.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* CoupDeGrace: Rick shoots him once each in the shoulder and gut, then finishes him off with a bullet to the head.
* FatSlob: Aside from his unkempt look, he pees on the floor in front of everyone!
* GoodCopBadCop: While Dave puts the good guys at their ease, Tony has more of a temper. He's also casually misogynistic and pisses on the floor.
* {{Jerkass}}: Unlike Dave, he makes no effort at trying to be friendly.
* PermaStubble: See the picture.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: His concern for "cooz" is disturbingly out of place.
* SuddenlyShouting: When he explodes that he'd be willing to kill the trio, Dave steps in to calm the situation, but even Glenn realizes this isn't as casual and friendly as Dave would like it to seem.
* UrineTrouble: It's his inappropriate choice of places to tinkle which drives the point home that he and Dave are probably not good news.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Tony is violent and pees where ever he likes... and that's about all we got of him before Rick takes him out.

!!Randall Culver
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I'm just some guy."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Michael Zegen

Another member of Dave's group, Randall is a local who went to school with Maggie, and claims he only joined up with Dave and his people because he had no other choice. He is captured by Rick's group, forcing them to try and figure out what to do with him. Shane lets him loose and breaks his neck as part of his plan to kill Rick, but Randall returns as a walker and is put down by Glenn.
* AintTooProudToBeg: Frantically says whatever he can to keep Rick and Shane from pulling the trigger on him.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: We never quite find out whether he's truly dangerous or not before he's murdered by Shane.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Turns into a walker after Shane snaps his neck, and is put down by Glenn.
* AssholeVictim: Possibly. Depends on [[AmbiguouslyEvil if you believe he really was innocent]] the whole time.
* {{Badass}}: He spends so much time tied up, it's easy to forget he's a killer. He manages to take a Walker down despite having his hands bound.
* BlatantLies: He was lying about knowing where his group was, as he happily complies with Shane's faux request to be brought to them.
* BoundAndGagged: How Rick and Shane keep him for most of "18 Miles Out".
* ButtMonkey: He gets impaled through the leg when he fails jumping off a roof, gets trussed up in a car, left for dead accidentally by Rick and Shane and told repeatedly to shut up by them. Then, he gets tortured by Daryl and nearly executed. And then he gets his neck snapped and becomes a walker.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* CarFu: He crushes a walkers head in while driving in "18 Miles Out".
* MotorMouth: Notes this himself, telling Shane he talks a lot when nervous.
* NeckSnap: How Shane kills him after leading him into the woods.
* RoofHopping: He tries this, and fails spectacularly.
* SayingTooMuch: When Daryl is interrogating him, he mentions that his group raped two teenage girls in front of their father, but insists he did not participate. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Daryl doesn't believe him]].
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Randall staying alive is what exacerbates the conflict between Rick and Shane until their eventual breaking point.
* WrongGenreSavvy: He thinks that telling Rick and Shane that he knows Maggie means that they'll spare him due to the connection and a sense of empathy. Actually it makes the argument that they should kill him even more convincing, as that means he knows where the farm is.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Phillip [=DeVona=]

Another member of Dave's group.
* BitPartBadGuy: He is a very minor character that gets into a shootout with Rick, Glenn, and Hershel before fleeing.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Nate:''' ''We're looking for Dave and Tony and nobody checks the damn bar?''
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Sean gets shot he decides to abandon him and drive away and calls on Randall. When Randall falls on the gate and his leg gets impaled on a gate, Nate abandons him as well.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Unlike Randall and Sean, he wasn't willing to go back to the rest of his group without killing Rick, Glenn, and Hershel for killing Dave and Tony even after Rick explains to him what happened. After Sean got wounded and Walkers began approaching, he decided fleeing was a better idea.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Keedar Whittle

A member of Dave's group who gets killed in the confrontation with Rick, Hershel, and Glenn.
* BitPartBadGuy: His entire role is giving Hershel someone to shoot.
* CanonForeigner: Never appeared in the comics.
* EatenAlive: Nose first.
* GangstaStyle: He shoots his gun like this, which may have saved Glenn's life.

!Prison Survivors

[[caption-width-right:300:''"I mean, I like my pharmaceuticals, but I ain't no killer!"'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Lew Temple

Axel is a two-bit criminal imprisoned for armed robbery with a water pistol. He was trapped in the prison after the ZombieApocalypse began, where he was pushed around by Tomas and Andrew, causing him to be relieved when Rick's group arrived. He joins the group after Oscar kills Andrew and saves Rick. He is murdered by the Governor during the first Woodbury assault on the prison.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Lacked his comic counterpart's perverted tendencies.
* AdaptationalWimp: His comic counterpart is ''TheBigGuy'' of the prison survivors.
* ADeathInTheLimelight: In "Home", he gets a lot of focus and some backstory revealed before being shot in the head by the Governor.
* AintTooProudToBeg: After Rick kills Tomas and ([[NotQuiteDead supposedly]]) Andrew for attempting to murder him, Axel begs Rick to spare his life, claiming that he isn't dangerous and was only imprisoned due to his prescription drug addiction. The last part was a lie, since he had been arrested for armed robbery (albeit with a water pistol) and he was trying to seem non-threatening.
* BoomHeadshot: Courtesy of the Governor, much like his comic counterpart.
* BulletproofHumanShield: Becomes this after his death, with Carol being forced to take cover behind his corpse. It works surprisingly well.
* CasanovaWannabe: Begins to flirt with Beth because he believes she's the only single straight woman of the group. After Carol tells him to back off and that she's not a lesbian -- Axel thought she was one [[AssociationFallacy because of the short hair]] -- he instantly begins to hit on her. She casually rejects him.
* TheChewToy: Was mercilessly bullied by Tomas and Andrew before Rick's group showed up, although Oscar stood up for him before that.
* DeadpanSnarker: After joining Rick's group has shades of this.
* GreaseMonkey: Mentions to Daryl that he could help give the motorcycle a tune up. Also tries to get the Prison generators working.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Mistakes Carol for a lesbian because [[AssociationFallacy she has short hair]].
* KilledMidSentence: He is shot in the head by the Governor while he and Carol are in a middle of conversation.
* MauveShirt: The show teases he will become a member of the group. He's then killed during the first raid the Governor makes against the Prison
* NervousWreck: Although this does not stop him from volunteering to help rescue Glenn and Maggie after they get captured by Woodbury.
* NiceGuy: He spends most of "Sick" attempting to get Rick's group and his fellow prisoners to get along. It really doesn't work, although he and Oscar do manage to earn the groups trust later.
* NonActionGuy: He admits that guns make him nervous, and that when he robbed a store he just used a water pistol.
* PluckyComicRelief: Most of his scenes tend to involve him being put down or having awkward conversations with other survivors.
* RedOniBlueOni: The talkative, emotional red to Oscar's calm, quiet blue.
* ShipTease: with Carol. Emphasis on 'tease'.
* SurprisinglySuddenDeath: Gets shot in the head by the Governor out of nowhere.
* TokenWhite: To the prisoner survivors.
* VerbalTic: "You follow me?"

[[caption-width-right:300:''"I ain't never pleaded for my life, and I ain't about to start now. So you do what you gotta do."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Vincent Ward

Oscar is a prisoner who was forced to go along with Tomas' leadership of the prison survivors. He was in prison for breaking and entering and had a wife and kids. He joined the group after killing Andrew and saving Rick. Oscar is killed in the middle of Season 3 after helping rescue Glenn and Maggie from Woodbury.
* AnAxeToGrind: While clearing the prison, he used an axe as his main weapon.
* {{Badass}}: He shows his badass credentials (which include a [[BadassBeard Badass Goatee]]) right away by proving to be the most competent of the prison survivors at killing walkers and his calm reaction to Rick putting a gun to his head while trying to figure out if he could be trusted.
* BaldOfAwesome: He proves to be a useful and brave member of the group, unlike [[LovableCoward Axel]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Throws a barrel at Andrew (who is fighting Rick) and then shoots him in the head.
* TheBigGuy: After joining the group.
** BigGuyFatalitySyndrome: And he is the second one to suffer it in the Season 3 as well.
* BlackBestFriend: He and Big Tiny shares this role to Axel. Although between them, he seems to play the trope straighter.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics. However, his appearance is quite similar to that of Dexter.
* CharacterDeath: He's shot in the back by a Woodbury soldier.
* DefiantToTheEnd: While he isn't killed, Oscar refuses to make a case for his life to Rick after Tomas and (supposedly) Andrew were killed for trying to murder and attack Rick. He states that he has never begged for his life before and won't do it now.
* JackOfAllStats: Has better agility than [[MightyGlacier T-Dog]], but, while still strong, didn't match his strength and toughness.
* MauveShirt: He gets a little background and a few personality traits before being killed off.
* NiceGuy: He's a reasonable man, and selflessly risks his life to save Glenn and Maggie. Axel mentions that before meeting up with Rick's group Oscar used to always stand up for him when Tomas and Andrew tried to push him around.
* TheQuietOne: He tends to remain pretty quiet in most group discussions.
* RedOniBlueOni: Calm, quiet blue to Axel's talkative, emotional red.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Of another BaldOfAwesome African-American.
* ThrowABarrelAtIt: He tosses a barrel at Andrew to prevent him from attacking Rick.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Hope you get some slippers in the afterlife Oscar.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Markice Moore

Andrew is Tomas' right hand man. He is killed by Oscar after luring a large number of walkers into the prison in an attempt to kill Rick's group.
* AdaptationalBadass: He may be a scumbag, but give the man credit: he survived being locked in close quarters with a bunch of walkers and caused utter chaos for the survivors before going mano-a-mano with Rick. It's more than his comic counterpart ever came close to achieving.
* AdaptationalVillainy: He's ''far more'' dangerous in this incarnation, making his comic counterpart pale in comparison.
* AnAxeToGrind: When he attacks Rick and Oscar in the generator room he has a big axe as his weapon.
* BatterUp: He uses a bat as his main weapon when fighting walkers.
* BlackBestFriend: To Tomas.
* BoomHeadshot: At the hands of Oscar.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Despite only having limited experience with the walkers, he picks up quite a few tactics in order to get revenge on Rick and his group. Namely, using fresh meat and loud noise to lure them in the courtyard to attract MORE walkers, then hiding in the generator room to kill Rick when he comes to shut the alarms off.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: For the first half of Season 3.
* TheDragon: To Tomas, being the only prisoner to follow his orders without protest.
* DragonAscendant: Proves to be far deadlier than Tomas, managing to survive near-certain death, orchestrating a Walker attack on the prison that leads to two major character deaths, and even holding his own in a fight against Rick.
* EatenAlive: This was heavily implied to be his fate after Rick locks him in a courtyard with a bunch of walkers, though it is averted when he shows up a couple episodes later orchestrating his revenge.
* EyeScream: When he actually does die, Oscar kills him by shooting him in the eye.
* FriendToPsychos: It looks like Tomas was the weapon that Andrew aimed at the rest of the prison, judging by the rather devastating intellect displayed under FromNobodyToNightmare.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: See the trope below, but Andrew, who just appeared to be Tomas' lackey, managed to cripple the group to the point of being a HeroKiller.
* HeroKiller: It was Andrew's plan to destroy their security that directly and indirectly leads to the deaths of two notable Atlanta survivors.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Trusts Oscar to be on his side and shoot Rick, after Oscar had just thrown a box at him.
* NotQuiteDead: Is believed to be dead after Rick locks him in a courtyard full of walkers but he turns up alive in Killer Within, with disastrous consequences.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: In his first appearance initially seems like nothing more than a lackey for Tomas, taking an ineffectual swing at Rick and presumably getting himself killed as a result. The next time he's seen is after surviving getting locked in the courtyard full of walkers, and unleashes a horde of them on the heroes, and holds his own in a one-on-one fight against Rick.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Apparently dies for it, although he comes back two episodes later and dies anyway.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Ruins the safety of the prison, which was formerly almost entirely safe. Setting off the alarms has lured even more walkers to the prison's surrounding area.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Subverted in "Killer Within". Specifically, he survived being KilledOffscreen as in the comics, but he was killed shortly upon his return.
* TooDumbToLive: Great job running off into the darkness unarmed, mate. Amazingly, he survives and wrecks havoc on the survivors.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Tomas, for some reason. It could be that he shared the relationship with Tomas that his comic counterpart had with Dexter.

[[caption-width-right:350:''"Shit happens."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Nick Gomez

Tomas is the leader of the prisoners, having held a position of authority even before the ZombieApocalypse. He does not take kindly to Rick taking charge of the prison. He is killed by Rick after attempting to kill him.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Thomas Richards is an unfit and balding man in the comics. Here, he is given a fit and {{Badass}} appearance similar to the Governor's comic counterpart.
* AdaptationalBadass: Thomas Richards is an ActionSurvivor at best, while Tomas can kick ass if he needs to be.
* AdaptationNameChange: To complement the RaceLift.
* AxCrazy: After Big Tiny is infected, Tomas immediately takes his pickaxe and destroys his head, [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill hitting it over and over until there is nothing left.]] Everyone else is extremely freaked out by this.
* AssholeVictim: Is killed by Rick after trying to slice him with a machete, and after failing that, throwing a walker onto him.
* {{Badass}}: He gets the hang of killing walkers pretty quickly and nearly manages to get Rick killed. He is also sporting a BadassMustache.
* CompositeCharacter: WordOfGod says he is Thomas Richard's counterpart, but his role in the prison arc matches Dexter better. On the other hand, his appearance greatly resembles the Governor's comic incarnation.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[CompositeCharacter Both]] of his prisoner counterparts were able to stick long enough in the comics, while he didn't even last a single episode excluding his last minute appearance in the the previous one.
* {{Expy}}: His appearance is similar to the Governor's comic book rendition, while his role as the most antagonistic prisoner (with an ally in Andrew) is similar to comic book's Dexter.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's antagonistic and rude to Rick's group from the moment he's introduced.
* IronicEcho: "Shit happens." In record time, too.
* TheLeader: Of the prison survivors.
* RaceLift: Tomas' comic counterpart, Thomas Richards, is Caucasian.
* StarterVillain: For Season 3.
* PowerfulPick: He uses a small pickaxe as his main melee weapon.
* TattooedCrook: Has numerous tattoos covering his body and is likely incarcerated for a violent crime, given how AxeCrazy he is.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: He thinks he can push Rick and his crew around, despite having seen the number of walkers they wasted taking the prison. Then he tries to kill Rick and tells him that "shit happens". The machete to his head by Rick was really the only way that situation was going to end.

[[folder:Big Tiny]]
!!Big Tiny
->'''Portrayed by:''' Theodus Crane

Big Tiny is the muscle of the prison survivors who was serving a fifteen year sentence before the ZombieApocalypse.
* TheBigGuy: The producers described him as the "muscle" of the prison survivors...

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Aside from being the first inmate to die, he's also the first living casualty of Season 3.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* CharacterDeath: After being bitten, Tomas brutally murders him.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: He expresses concern for his mother after learning of the walker apocalypse.
* GentleGiant: He's pretty soft-spoken and nice despite his huge, intimidating size and strength.
* IronicNickname: "Tiny" is anything but.
* MightyGlacier: During the prison group's first fight scene, he notably attacks slower than all of them yet delivered the strongest damage to the walkers he's fighting. Too bad that's his only fight scene.
* NiceGuy: He seemed to be a pretty decent guy and was never hostile to Rick unlike Tomás and Andrew.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: For the brief time he's on screen, he's only ever addressed by his nickname.
* RedShirt: Gets almost zero characterization before being killed.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Dies halfway through his first episode.
* ZombieInfectee: He gets scratched by a walker while clearing the prison, causing Tomas to kill him.

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:After she thinks Paul died]], she decides she doesn't want to be the SoleSurvivor of her group [[spoiler:and asks Doctor Gale to help her commit suicide with drugs]].

Paul is the other survivor of the walker herd attack on the tent city. He was injured during the attack, causing Karina to desperately search for medical supplies to treat him.
* AllThereInTheManual: It's revealed he chained the hospital cafeteria doors and painted "DONT OPEN DEAD INSIDE" on them.
* {{Badass}}: When he awakens in a locked room full of walkers strapped down to a medical gurney, not only does he manage to free himself, but he is able to improvise a few weapons to kill a few walkers before finding a gun and being able to escape.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted: There are two other Paul's in ''The Walking Dead'' TV universe: one at Woodbury, and the other a minor character in the ''Dead Reckoning'' flash game.
* ThePromise: Like all members of their group, he swore an oath upon joining that "One lives. All live."

* {{Sole Survivor}}s: He and Karina are the only ones who escape the walker attack on their group. [[spoiler: He becomes the only survivor after Karina commits suicide]].

* CharacterDeath: Daryl shoots him in the chest with a crossbow.
* DangerousDeserter: Abandoned the military with his tank as soon as the shit hit the fan, and he is willing to kill other survivors to get supplies.
* TheDragon: To Martinez. Becomes one to the Governor after the latter murders Pete.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Averted. At first, he's angered and saddened by Pete's death at the hands of the Governor but he gets over it very quickly and becomes the Governor's [[TheDragon dragon]].
* {{Jerkass}}: He is a total asshole to everybody. He is actually somewhat similar to Merle, but without the redeeming qualities.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: After Daryl forces him into the open with a grenade rolled down the barrel of the main cannon, detonating inside the tank, Mitch surrenders to him. It doesn't do any good, however.
* SiblingYinYang: Mitch is the more violent, jerkass of the two Dolgen brothers.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Wears tank tops and vests, which shows off his muscular build.
* SociopathicSoldier: He has no problem with murder or theft, [[DangerousDeserter stealing a tank when he bailed out on the Army at the first convenient oportunity]].
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Mitch appears to be one for Merle, as a ruthless {{Jerkass}} with a SiblingYinYang type relationship with his more compassionate younger brother. He even becomes The Governor's new [[TheDragon Dragon]], and ultimately proves to be worse than Merle due to not seeking revenge for The Governor killing his brother.
* TankGoodness: He was a tank operator in the army, and still has his tank with him at the camp.

!!Pete Dolgen

!The Claimers

[[folder: In General]]

-->'''Joe:''' See, going it alone, that ain't an option nowadays. Still, it ''is'' survival of the fittest. That's a paradox right there. So I laid out some rules of the road to keep things from going Darwin every couple hours. Keep our merry band together and stress-free. All you got to do is claim. That's how you mark your territory, your prey, your bed at night. One word: ''claimed''.

A small group of marauders in Georgia led by Joe who come into conflict with the group. They have strict rules about "claiming" supplies and not violating another's claim, under penalty of beatings or even death.
* AdaptationExpansion: They are given more characterizations in the show than in the comics.
* AdaptationNameChange: They are called the Marauders in the comics.
* AgeLift: The Marauders are in their late 30s to mid 40s in the comics, while majority of them are {{Badass Grandpa}}s in the show.
* {{Asshole Victim}}s: Every single one of them had it coming.
* CanonForeigner and/or DecompositeCharacter: Either one since there are only three Marauders in the comics while there are seven Claimers in the show.
* {{Mooks}}: Harley, Billy, and Lou.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: All members of the Marauders are nameless characters in the comics.
* ObviouslyEvil: They dress in black, look particularly rough, all tote impressive weaponry, and casually talk about theft and rape.
* PsychopathicManchild: Their whole philosophy of taking what you want by calling 'dibs' and the like smacks of stunted emotional growth. Joe in particular acts like a strict parent enforcing rules among chaotic, simple-minded children.
* RedShirt: Lou, who is killed by Rick in his first scene. Harley and Billy as well, who receive zero characterization and then are killed along with the rest of the Claimers.
* {{Revenge}}: They trek towards Terminus, a not particularly safe action, just to kill Rick for fatally choking Lou and then setting a walker on them.

[[caption-width-right:300:''"Why hurt yourself when you can hurt other people?"'']]
->'''Played By:''' Creator/JeffKober

-->''"Seems to me that things are just starting to fall together. At least for guys like us."''

The leader of the Claimers. After a brief encounter with Rick, Carl, and Michonne, Joe's group finds and recruits Daryl.
* AmbiguouslyBi: He's shown to be very hurt by Lou's death, but while he likely ''was'' going to rape Michonne, it's not 100% clear that he was going to rape Carl as well.
* {{Badass}}: Since he's the leader of a gang of vicious killers and opportunists, he pretty much has to be to keep his head attached to his neck.
* BadassGrandpa: He's notably much older than his gang and can kick ass.
* BeardOfEvil: He has a goatee beard and is deeply evil.
* BerserkButton: Don't lie to him, or say something that he believes is a lie, or he will order his people to beat you to death.
* BigBad: Of the second half of Season 4, though he only menaces Rick, Michonne, Carl, and Daryl before his death.
* BullyingADragon: Rick's the proverbial dragon. As expected, it gets Joe killed.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Of the Season 4 finale. He's killed by the middle of the episode.
* EvilLaugh[=/=]EvilGloating: Holding Rick on gunpoint and laughing about how he and his friends will rape Carl, then Michonne, then kill Daryl, and finally kill him.
* EvilMentor: Joe is a brutal killer, but he has a soft spot for Daryl and quickly takes him under his wing.
* EvilVirtues: Sure, he's evil, but Joe is pretty big on honesty. Being lied to is his BerserkButton.
* FamousLastWords: While facing Rick.
-->''"What the hell are you gonna do now, sport?"''
* FauxAffablyEvil: Sure, he is the leader of a group of murderers and would-be rapists, but [[AffablyEvil he's remarkably polite, affable and fair-minded (particularly to Daryl)]], but later he crosses over into this trope while talking to Rick when he and his group are preparing to rape and murder Rick's group:
-->'''Joe:''' Look we can settle this, we're reasonable men. First we're gonna beat Daryl to death, then we'll have the girl, then the boy, then I'm gonna shoot you and then we'll be square. {Laughs sadistically}
* FlunkyBoss: Rick, Daryl and Michonne fought him alongside his {{Mook}}s.
* GenreSavvy: Knew right off the bat that Terminus' promise of sanctuary was a lie.
* HonorBeforeReason: An odd example. He's by no means good, but he follows the rules he sets and is quite willing to be reasonable with people.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: His casual and gleeful murder of Len, one of his own group members was ruthless, but it's hard to feel any sympathy for Len.
* TheLeader: Of the Claimers.
* ManBitesMan: He's on the receiving end of this courtesy of Rick, who is unarmed and disoriented from the sound of a gunshot blast and having been beaten by Joe. PapaWolf Rick literally rips Joe's throat out with his teeth.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: His rules and his judicious application of them are probably the only reason his group hasn't fallen apart. He also does not punish Daryl for not claiming the rabbit because he's aware Daryl is new. In fact, he even makes sure to hear out what's going on between his group if an argument breaks out.
* WouldHurtAChild: Joe is willing to slaughter absolutely anyone, and his threat to have Carl raped and murdered is one of the (many) reasons that get him killed.

->'''Played By:''' Marcus Hester

-->''"You see the rules of the hunt don't mean jack out here. Now that rabbit you're holdin' is claimed, boy. Claimed whether you like it or not."''

A compound-bow wielding marauder under Joe's command.
* TheArcher: He's a proficient archer.
* AssholeVictim: While he was murdered for a petty reason, he clearly had it coming.
* BeardOfEvil: Has a beard and is obviously evil.
* DeathByAdaptation: It isn't clear who his Marauder counterpart is, but they all died together.
* TheDragon: The most prominent of Joe's group.
* DidntSeeThatComing: Clearly didn't expect Joe to spot him trying to frame Daryl.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Choking Tony unconscious simply to sleep in his bed.
* HateSink: He exists mainly to show that yes, people are capable of being jerks for no reason what so ever.
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: Tried to frame Daryl for stealing his rabbit half but instead Joe has the group punish him for lying because he saw him do it. The result? He gets killed.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Nearly starts a fight with Daryl when he said he "claimed" the rabbit. Joe points out he hardly knew that himself.
* {{Jerkass}}: Chokes out group members for beds, and calls dibs on taking Daryl's jacket when the marauders first encounter him. He also shoots and calls dibs on a rabbit Daryl is about to kill before taunting him about why he is acting all depressed.
-->'''Len:''' You know, I bet there's a bitch, got you all messed up, am I right? Got you walking around here like a dead man, you just lost yourself a piece of tail, must've been a good'un'. Tell me something, was it one of the little'uns? 'Cause they... don't last too long out here.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: The recipient of one that results in his death for trying to frame Daryl.
* TheRival: To Daryl.

->'''Played By:''' Davi Jay

Another member of Joe's group.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Due to actor Davi Jay's ethnicity.
* BadassesWearBandanas: Subverted. He never gets to do anything remotely badass, and even gets beaten by Len for a bed.
* BeardOfEvil: Like the rest of the group. Combines it with PermaStubble.
* BoomHeadshot: With his own gun, thanks to Michonne.
* TheDarkChick: To Joe's BigBad, Len's TheDragon and Dan's TheBrute. He never gets to do anything particularly heinous.
** TheDragon: Becomes this after Len's death.

->'''Played By:''' Keith Brooks

Another member of Joe's group.
* AscendedExtra: A mild example; he had little to no dialogue before "A", but he becomes the most prominent asshole of the group when he attempts to rape Carl.
* AssholeVictim: Even more so than the other members of his group. He was planning on ''raping'' Carl and Michonne, so it's okay to admit that you cheered when Rick brutally stabbed him to death.
* AttemptedRape: On Carl. Once he's done, he's planning to rape Michonne next.
* BaldOfEvil: Not completely, but balding.
* BeardOfEvil: Like most of his companions.
* TheBerserker: His actor described him as an "[[TheBrute attack dog]]" who doesn't slow down one bit when given an order.
* DeathByAThousandCuts[=/=]ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Oh boy, Rick surely takes his time to stab him repeatedly for attempting the above.
* DepravedBisexual: Tries to rape Carl in "A" and the next one was going to be Michonne.
* EvilLaugh: While trying to rape Carl. He's clearly enjoying it.
* HumanShield: When Rick kills Joe and turns the table on the Claimers, he tries to use Carl as one, but his nerve fails when the blood-soaked Rick stomps towards him and he lets him go.
* OhCrap: This is his reaction when Rick rips Joe's throat out with his teeth, and he realizes that Rick isn't someone to be messing with.
* WouldHurtAChild: Punches Carl and drags him out of a car before attempting to rape him.

->'''Played By:''' JD Evermore

Another member of Joe's group.
* BeardOfEvil: Same as most of his companions.
* BoomHeadshot: Courtesy of Michonne.
* {{Mook}}: Just another member of Joe's group.
* RedShirt: Gets zero characterization before dying.

->'''Played By:''' Eric Mendenhall

Another member of Joe's group.
* {{Mook}}: Just another member of The Claimers.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Daryl smashes his skull in, killing him.
* RedShirt: Gets no personality before dying.

->'''Played By:''' Scott Dale

Another member of Joe's group, who is killed by Rick.
* RedShirt: Even more so than Harley and Billy; Rick kills him in his first scene.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He dies without even getting a line but his death causes the Claimers to start tracking Rick's group out of revenge.

!Other Survivors

!!Father Gabriel Stokes
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I have no weapons of any kind. The word of God is the only protection I need."'']]
->'''Portrayed By:''' Seth Gilliam

-->''"I'm a sinner. I sin almost every day. But those sins, I confess them to God, not strangers."''

Gabriel Stokes is a priest encountered by Rick's group of survivors after fleeing from Terminus. He holds refuge in a church.
* ActualPacifist: He hates fighting even if the situation calls for it. He's potentially the first character since Season 1 who isn't shown owning a weapon.
-->'''Gabriel:''' I have no weapons of any kind. The word of God is the only protection I need.
* AdaptationalWimp: ZigZagged. He is even ''more'' of a coward and NonActionGuy than his comic book counterpart, if that's possible. Case in point: [[spoiler: in "Crossed" he sneaks out of the church and abandons the group, something that didn't happen in the comics.]] However, he does ''chokeslam'' a Walker [[spoiler:after he sneaked out on his own.]]
* AgeLift: He is in his late thirties in the comic. According to TheOtherWiki, he is in his early to mid-forties in the show. This is probably evidenced when the show made him bald.
* AsTheGoodBookSays: A firm believer of TheBible and the words of {{God}}. His church displays readings of verses related to the dead and resurrection, appropriately enough.
* BadassPreacher: Averted. He's one of the least capable characters on the show.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: WordOfGod implies that he served as head of his parish.
* ButtMonkey: The group never accepts him as one of their own and often disrespects him; when he tries to counsel Maggie (being a priest, it's probably the only thing he's good for in the group), she harshly rejects him. Even Carl acts condescending to him.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: After Atlanta was bombed in the early days of the ZombieApocalypse, he locked his church and refused to let in a group seeking refuge. The noise they made trying to get in brought Walkers out of the woods, and they were killed and devoured while he listened.
* DeathSeeker: In the Season 5 finale [[spoiler: he approaches a walker to let himself be bitten but recants at the last minute. Later in the episode not only does he leaves the gates of Alexandria open but when Sasha has him at gunpoint and Maggie stops her Gabriel tells her she should've let Sasha kill him.]]
* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler:He locked his church's doors to his parishioners, leading to them being devoured by the dead.]] He has limits though, as shown by staying quiet even when the Hunters give him a chance to leave peacefully.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Gabriel never quite fits into Rick's group before they arrive at the Safe-Zone, and it's made clear that several members dislike him and don't consider him to be "family". [[spoiler: Gabriel seems to realize this too, as he becomes an UngratefulBastard as soon as the group gets to Alexandria and tries to get Deanna to kick them out]].
* GentleGiant: Surprisingly proves himself so when he's able to lift a walker off the ground stock-armed, but is unable to finish it off.
* GiveMeASign: Believes that Rick was sent by God.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: He encourages Deanna to kick out Rick's group on the basis that they have done "unspeakable things". Never mind that Gabriel was the one who ''locked out his entire congregation at the beginning of the apocalypse, letting them all get eaten by walkers''.]]
* InMysteriousWays: He's a firm believer in this.
* TheLoad: He's pretty useless. He's not even wanted as a counselor.
* NiceGuy: Subverted. Gabriel is an affable if nervous fellow, but in this case being pleasant doesn't mean he's good. He's a judgmental coward with no understanding of how the world has changed.
** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: In case you thought that Gabriel was trying to redeem himself, [[spoiler: in "Spend" [[UngratefulBastard he tries to convince Deanna to kick Rick's group out of Alexandria on the basis that they are "bad people".]]]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: After leaving the church to examine the Hunters camp for evidence of what kind of people they were, he returns only to accidentally lead a herd of walkers inside the church.
* NonActionGuy: He is first seen lying on top of a rock, kicking at walkers and yelling for help and is rescued by Rick and his group. Later, he has to be aggressively prodded by Rick into joining the scouting mission at the food bank. During the mission, he even tries to bail as he's so frightened by the walkers.
** In "Them", he steps in and helps the group hold the barn door shut when a large herd of zombies try to break in, showing that he is at least TRYING to earn the group's respect. Seth Gilliam said on the following episode of Talking Dead that he felt this was the moment when the group accepted him as one of their own.
** "Spend" shows that [[spoiler: Gabriel actually has no intention of being accepted by the group, and in fact wants them kicked out of Alexandria for the "unspeakable" actions they have commited.]]
* PreacherMan: What he is. [[spoiler: He presides over Tyreese's, and presumably Beth's funerals.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Decides to leave [[spoiler:Rick's group and his church]] because he feels he needs to go [[spoiler:to the Hunters camp]] and see if they were really as bad as what he had been told. Although he finds a bible, he quickly returns to the church [[spoiler:after discovering Bob's partially eaten leg]]. He later admits to Michonne that he understands why they did what they did [[spoiler:to the Hunters.]]
* SecondEpisodeIntroduction: Introduced in the second episode of Season 5, "Strangers".
* SinisterMinister: Averted, despite Rick and Sasha's suspicions. He's just an ordinary priest on his own.
* SixthRanger: To Rick's group in Season 5.
* TookALevelInBadass: Downplayed. In the recent finale, he finally got his act and just as he was going to commit suicide by letting a walker eat him, he grabs the Walker by the neck with a noose and chokes it to death so hard that its head gets ripped off by the rope's pressure and than presume to smashes its skull with a stone. He also smashes a dying victim;s who just got his chest eaten off by the very same zombie he killed. In the same finale he gets into a scuffle with shuffle and grapples so aggressively with her that she struggles to aim her rifle at him for several minutes.
* TokenReligiousTeammate: He ''is'' a priest, after all.
* UngratefulBastard: ''Is he ever.'' [[spoiler: In "Spend," he tries to get Monroe to kick Rick's group out of Alexandria and let him stay because of all the "unspeakable things" they've done -- the same unspeakable things that ''saved Gabriel's life several times over''.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Is quietly shocked by Rick's group's [[spoiler:butchery of the Hunters within his church.]]
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Chokeslams and impales a Walker [[spoiler:after he splinters off from his church after the Hunters debacle.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler: Gets his own church overrun, and is forced to abandon it and join the group on the road.]]
* ZombieAdvocate: Like Hershel and Lizzie before him, he thinks that walkers are still people. Thankfully, he is following the former's way [[SanitySlippage instead of the latter's]].

->'''Portrayed By:''' Kerry Condon

Clara is an Irish survivor who became stuck in Georgia with her husband Eddie after the airports were shut down. She encounters Rick in the Season 4 premiere, asking for help getting food to her walker husband.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Due to the trauma of zombie apocalypse and loosing her husband
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: She reappears in "Too Far Gone", now a walker, and part of a herd that invades the ruined prison after being lured by the sound of gunfight and tank shots.
* CanonForeigner: She never appeared in the comics.
* DrivenToSuicide: She stabs herself in the stomach after failing to kill Rick to feed to her walker-head husband, unable to live with the things that she and her husband have done to survive and wanting to become like him.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Due to suffering starvation and probably illness
* EternalLove: In a twisted way. Not only does she want to feed the undead head of her husband, she then takes her life to be like him.
* {{Expy}}: She may have been influenced by The Stranger from [[VideoGame.TheWalkingDead The Walking Dead game]], who also lost his mind after losing his loved ones in the woods, and spoke to their zombified head in a bag.
* IllGirl: It is clear she's suffering from undernourishment and the effects of being forced to eat even rotten food.
* SanitySlippage: She has clearly become unhinged, as Rick discovers when her husband is just his decapitated walker head.

->'''Portrayed By:''' Brina Palencia

A girl Rick and Carol found hiding in a house while they were looking for medical supplies. She's quite inexperienced with walkers and has managed to stay unusually optimistic with the help of her boyfriend Sam.
* BuryYourDisabled: Her leg didn't heal well after she got trampled, meaning if she was ever chased by walkers, she wouldn't make it very far, so this combined with the fact that Rick was hesitant to add more people to the group made it unlikely that she was going to last long after leaving the house she was hiding in.
* CanonForeigner: She never appeared in the comics.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Due to her badly-healed leg.
* EatenAlive[=/=]KilledOffScreen: Rick and Carol finds her badly-healed leg severed from her body and the rest of her being devoured by walkers.
* KillTheCutie: Ana, who is as cute as [[GilmoreGirls Rory]] gets eaten in her first appearance.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Takes six shots just to kill one walker.
* LoveInterest: For Sam, who saved her after she was trampled.
* ThePollyanna: For someone trying to survive the zombie apocalypse with a bum leg, she's oddly optimistic.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Dies in the same episode she was introduced.

->'''Portrayed By:''' Robin Lord Taylor

A boy Rick and Carol find with a dislocated arm who was hiding out with his girlfriend Ana. He's unusually trusting and optimistic.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:After being captured by Terminus, he gets his head bashed in by an aluminum bat, and then gets his throat slit and bleeds out into a trough.]]
* TheCutie: Like his girlfriend, he's unusually optimistic and trusting.
* SlashedThroat: [[spoiler:After being hit in the head by a bat, a Termite cuts his throat over a trough.]]
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome[=/=]BackForTheDead: [[spoiler:He's the first casualty of Season 5, having been captured and then slaughtered like a pig by Terminus during the opening. Rick recognizes him and is unable to help him.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: He never shows up at the rendezvous after heading to the greenhouse, but his body is never seen either, leaving his fate unknown until the first episode of Season 5.
* WideEyedIdealist: Oddly, he claims to like people more now in the ZombieApocalypse, instead of being mistrustful or weary of them like most other survivors. Considering his fate, he [[WrongGenreSavvy should've thought better]].
