[[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.
* ButtMonkey: Was mercilessly bullied by Tomas and Andrew before Rick's group showed up, although Oscar stood up for him before that.
* 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.
* DeadpanSnarker: After joining Rick's group has shades of this.
* DeathByAdaptation: In the comics, Axel was the first casualty during the Governor's 2nd attack on the Prison. Here, he's killed right at the very start of the first attack.
* 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, and he proves to be a loyal, hardworking member of the group for the remainder of his tenure on the show.
* 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.
* 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.
* DirtyCoward: Averted, he doesn't resort to begging to his life when Rick threatens him.
* 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.
* DevouredByTheHorde: 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.
* 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.
* 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 barrel at him.
* MoeGreeneSpecial: When he actually does die, Oscar kills him by shooting him in the eye.
* 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.
* CompositeCharacter: His role in the story best resembles Dexter, while his appearance matches the comic version of the Governor and his name is the Spanish equivalent of Thomas Richards.
* 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.
* GangBangers: Implied to have been a gang member prior to being imprisoned.
* {{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 counterparts Thomas Richards and Dexter are white and black, respectively.
* StarterVillain: For Season 3. He's dead by episode 2.
* 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...
* BigGuyFatalitySyndrome: ...which doesn't do him much good when he freaks out fighting walkers.
* BlackBestFriend: Although he and Oscar share the role to Axel, the latter two seem to be more closer.
* 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 more slowly than all of them yet delivers the most 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. Though being scratched by a zombie is rarely fatal, this doesn't stop Tomas from killing him.


[[caption-width-right:300:''"We're the ones who live."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Creator/DanaiGurira

-->''"Have you ever been covered in so much blood that you didn't know if it was yours or walker's or your friend's?"''

Michonne is a mysterious hooded survivor who saves Andrea after the attack on the farm. The two of them traveled together for several months as of the beginning of the third season. She used two armless and jawless walkers to carry supplies and ward off other walkers, only telling Andrea that they were barely men before becoming walkers. The truth of the matter is that they were her boyfriend and his friend who got her infant son killed by walkers, traumatizing her and causing her to shut down until she meets Andrea.

Dead on the money regarding her suspicions of The Governor, Michonne ends up joining Rick's group when she literally causes shit to hit the fan when she kills The Governor's undead daughter, provoking a brutal war between the two groups. Michonne ultimately earns her place within the group when Rick refuses to hand her over to The Governor for torture, and deeply ingratiates herself in the group, even becoming a surrogate mother to Carl and Judith.

To her horror, her hunt for The Governor ends the ''day'' he returns to the prison with a vengeance, but ultimately Michonne is able to end his reign of terror once and for all with her katana. After a brief relapse to her old, lifeless days, she finds Rick and Carl and becomes closer to Rick as a confidante and as a [[TheLancer Lancer]]. Having done a 180, she becomes one of the most optimistic and friendly members of the group, especially when they risk falling into the same lifeless stupor that she once succumbed to, and becomes a constable at Alexandria. After several major battles at Alexandria, Michonne soon discovers and gets what she really wants in life -- a relationship with Rick and family with him, Carl, and Judith. When the Saviors take over Alexandria, Michonne is eventually able to help Rick realize they must fight back.
* ActionGirl: By far the most adept female at fighting walkers on the show.
* ActionMom: Though her baby is long dead. She now counts as this with Carl and Judith, who she's become an adoptive mother to since Season 4.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Her humanity is evident much earlier here than the comics. Her more questionable actions from the comic were also AdaptedOut. Best shown in Season 5 when the group gets to Alexandria; her comic counterpart found it hard to fit in and didn't trust the place, whereas here she is one of the most optimistic members of the group about the situation. Sasha ends up getting her "out of place" storyline.
* AdaptationalModesty: Her comicbook counterpart ReallyGetsAround. This incarnation doesn't.
* TheAloner: Implied to have spent a great deal of time traveling alone save for her two zombie companions. As a result, she's very self-sufficient, but slowly learns to rely and care for others.
* AngryBlackMan: Or in this case, Angry Black Woman. At Woodbury, especially towards [[BigBad The Governor]] and [[TheDragon Merle]]. She mellows towards the latter when she notices his guilt.
* ArchEnemy: For The Governor.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Sasha and Rosita in "Try".
* BadassArmfold: Occasionally shows this whenever Rick's negotiating with someone.
* BadassesWearBandanas: She wears a diadem.
* BattleCouple: With Rick starting the second half of Season 6.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: As The Governor soon found out.
* TheBigGirl: She's pretty on par with the physically strong fighters. She even survives going into a one-on-one fight with [[AxCrazy the Governor]] and gives Rick a OneHitKO.
* BigDamnHeroes:
** Her debut shows her saving Andrea from a walker by cutting its head off.
** Stabbing the Governor to save Rick in the second attack on the prison.
* BlackBestFriend: To Andrea in season 3. It's most likely the closest relationship Andrea has maintained since Amy died.
* BlackCloak: Her hooded jacket.
* BodyguardBabes: She's often Rick's partner and is very easy on the eyes.
* BodyguardingABadass: She walks by Rick's side to protect him, despite the fact that Rick himself is a highly competent badass in his own right.
* BodyguardCrush: She keeps an eye on Rick, but soon became a BattleCouple with him.
* BreakoutCharacter: One of the most popular characters of the series and is considered as one of its SeriesMascot along with [[TheHero Rick]], [[TheLancer Daryl]], [[ActionMom Carol]], [[BattleCouple Glenn, Maggie]] and [[TeamDad Hershel]].
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: Much like Daryl, she's incredibly tough, but does have a friendly demeanor underneath her hardened shell.
* TheCassandra: She was immediately able to sense that the Governor (and by extension, his men) is someone who shouldn't be trusted and warned Andrea. [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Andrea being Andrea]]...
* TheCavalry: Served in this role to Andrea at the end of the second season.
* CharacterDevelopment: One of the best examples in the series. She starts out as an emotionless, quiet survivor who kills without hesitation and likes to do things on her own. By Season 5, she's a team player and has become one of the nicest and most optimistic members of the group; she may even qualify as TheHeart after the deaths of Tyreese and Glenn.
* CompositeCharacter: With the DeathByAdaptation of Andrea in Season 3, she takes her place as Rick's [[TheConfidant confidant]], female [[TheLancer Lancer]] (shared with Carol, though Michonne is obviously more prominent), and eventually his SecondLove.
* TheConscience: She has become this to Rick since Season 5, often reining him back from making hasty decisions that will result in violence or death. Despite shrugging off others, Rick actually listens to Michonne's advice and will change a plan of action if she's firmly opposed to it.
* CynicismCatalyst: The death of her son caused her to become very cynical and withdrawn.
* CryCute: When she saw Andrea dying. In Season 4, she does this after holding Judith. Happens again when she finds Carl and Rick after believing everyone else from the prison to be dead.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She lost her son early in the apocalypse, and it is implied that her boyfriend killed him in what he thought was a MercyKill.
* DeathGlare: Appears to be her permanent facial expression, but she gets better as she starts to open up to Rick's group.
* DeadpanSnarker: She gets out a few witty remarks and sarcastic comments, all of them in her usual deadpan demeanor.
* DeadPersonConversation: Sometimes talks with her dead boyfriend.
* DecompositeCharacter: Due to her AdaptationalHeroism, her "out of place in Alexandria" storyline in the comics was given to Sasha.
* DefrostingIceQueen:
** She seems to be mostly out for herself, but still tries to help the prison group in Season 3. And then there's her sad reaction to Penny... before learning she is a Walker.
** In "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS03E12Clear Clear]]", she opens up to both Carl and Rick, showing her soft side and helping them with both their problems. As a result, they accept her into the group.
** Season 4 delves into her past and, as a result, we learn her initial frostiness was because of grief due to a traumatic event prior to discovering Andrea in the forest at the end of Season 2. Carl primarily learns this information and Michonne becomes more affectionate and protective of him, eventually crediting he, Rick, and Andrea for helping her through her pain.
** She finally opens up enough to pursue a romantic relationship with Rick in Season 6, inspired by Deanna's advice to take what she wants in life.
* DiagonalCut: Frequently cuts clean through Walker heads in this manner.
* DreadlockWarrior: Female example.
* TheDrifter: Prefers traveling rather than trying to find a place to settle down safely. She eventually joins the group at the prison, although it still takes her a few months to decide to stay permanently.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Despite being alone in the wastelands on the zombie world, Michonne absolutely refuses to give into committing atrocious deeds like so many antagonists and even goes out of her way to help others.
* FingerlessGloves: Her brown leatherette glovelettes.
* FireForgedFriends: Throughout Season 3, she and Rick didn't get along at first until the two started working together more. After overcoming the Governor, she grew attached to him and his group, eventually joining them permanently.
* FriendlySniper: In Season 7 she steps up to become the group's main sniper, after Sasha departs to Hilltop to take care of Maggie and later dies.
* FriendToAllChildren: Michonne has a soft spot for kids. In fact, the only reason why she even met Rick and his group at the prison in the first place was because she saw his friends get abducted when they were searching for baby food, which prompted her to take it upon herself to give the infant supplies to strangers she never met.
* FriendshipMoment: In "Try" where she and Rosita search for Sasha, quickly determining that she was hunting walkers and even fighting alongside each other and saving Sasha in the process. Though their efforts went in vain, they at least tried to comfort Sasha.
* TheFriendsWhoNeverHang: Despite being two of the show's biggest [[BreakoutCharacter Breakout Characters]], she and Carol have never shared a scene alone together.
* GlassCannon: She's good on the offensive. However, her opponents weren't usually able to hit her back, and when she's traveling alone she can't treat her own injuries.
* GoodIsNotSoft: She may be one of the noblest characters, but she doesn't hesitate to kill if necessary.
* GoodParents: Michonne was shown to be a very good mother to Andre and she treats Carl and Judith like her own children. The majority of her decisions and advice to Rick involves making sure Carl and Judith can live a safe, healthy life.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Inverted. Every single male main character prefers using long ranged weapons such as guns and crossbow, while she prefers swords.
* HatesBeingAlone: Realizes in "After" that she's grown attached to Rick's group and goes out of her way to reunite with them, succeeding at her efforts in the end. She then fully embraces the group as her family and vows to be with them until the very end.
* TheHeart: She of all people becomes this during the Alexandria arc, being the most vocal supporter of the place and trying to push Rick in a less pragmatic direction.
* HeroicBSOD:
** In the fourth season, after the fall of the prison, she lapses into her original behavior, captures and maims two zombies like her previous "companions", and joins a herd. Eventually snaps out of it, wipes out the herd, and rejoins Rick and Carl.
** Suffers another one in "Say Yes," when she believes that Rick was killed and is readying herself to be devoured by walkers. Thankfully, it turns out Rick survived and snapped her out of it.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Andrea, who seems to be one of the few companions Michonne has allowed herself to become to close after the apocalypse. When Andrea leaves Michonne for the Governor, she is deeply hurt, and in the end stayed by Andrea's side in her final moments.
* HiddenDepths: In "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS03E12Clear Clear]]", she turns out to relate very well with Rick, having gone through the same mental trauma. She also displays a soft side with Carl, helping him get a photo of his mother, and generally acting in a weird, cool bodyguard/aunt combination. In fact, when she's around Carl, she tends to reveal she can be downright nerdy, as she apparently goes out scavenging for ''comic books'' that the two can share. Several episodes show that she has an artistic side.
* HumanPackMule: She used two walkers to carry supplies around.
* IconicOutfit: The headband and bright colored tank tops she's seen wearing much of the time.
* IconicSequelCharacter: She did not show up until the second SeasonFinale and was only properly introduced in the Season 3 premiere.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Michonne displays about zero proficiency with firearms, and pretty much sticks to using her katana and other melee weapons. However, when more of the group's better shots are either killed, incapacitated, or absent, Michonne learns and trains herself to be the group's sniper come Season 7.
* IntergenerationalFriendship:
** With Carl. They geek out over comic books together and even trade stories about their lives before the apocalypse, gradually becoming closer as Michonne transitions into the role of surrogate mother to him and Judith.
** With Deanna too. Deanna is a CoolOldLady who inspires Michonne to become a more noble human being and encourages her to pursue a romantic relationship with Rick.
* InTheHood: In the Season 2 finale.
* InterruptedSuicide: In "Say Yes," Michonne looks like she's ready to allow a horde of walkers to devour her when she thinks Rick was killed. Fortunately, he pops out alive and saves her just in time.
* IWorkAlone: When she's leaving Woodbury and Andrea refuses to go with her, Michonne claims that she just slowed her down anyway. In Season 4, she goes out on scavenging runs by herself, as well as to look for the Governor. However, in "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E04Indifference Indifference]]", she decides to end her hunt for him and stay at the prison.
* JackOfAllStats: Not initially: when she's first introduced, she's not a good shot, focusing mainly on using her katana. Later seasons rectify this, and she becomes one of the group's main snipers after she trains herself with using a rifle.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Her preferred weapon of choice is her katana blade, which can slice through walkers in a single stroke.
* KickTheSonOfABitch:
** Murdering the Governor and leaving him to bleed out in a field filled with walkers without mercy killing him.
** Murdering [[TheDarkChick Theresa]] for trying to kill her group while she breaks down crying.
** Murdering [[spoiler:Ron]] for attacking Carl.
* LadyOfWar: Cool and collected, she's usually seen disposing of walkers with grace and quickness.
* TheLancer: During the second half of Season 4, after meeting up with Rick and Carl, Michonne takes this role in their small group. After the entire group reunites in Terminus, she begins sharing this role with Daryl.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: In Season 2.
* MamaBear: Michonne's very quick to protect Carl, spends days tracking him down in "After", and when Ron tries to shoot Carl and Rick in "No Way Out", she doesn't hesitate to [[WouldHurtAChild stab him through the chest]]. She's also one of those who slaughtered the remaining Termites after they threatened Judith. She even tries to reason with Negan to protect Carl, knowing that it could get someone killed for her talking out of turn (and considering that the whole group was at gunpoint, the stakes were at their highest) -- it doesn't, possibly because she doesn't attempt to resist him physically, but she took a big risk for Carl nonetheless.
* MasterSwordsman: She's very skilled with that sword of hers, to say the least, and in Season 5, we're informed that she's self-taught, having acquired the weapon after the start of the apocalypse and learning its use via the "School of Hard Knocks" method.
* MythologyGag: Michonne considers suicide in "Say Yes" while surrounded by walkers just like her videogame counterpart did in ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' Michonne DLC.
* MoralityChain: To Rick. By Season 6, she's one of the few people he'll listen to, as shown on several occasions when she talks him down from using violence to solve all of Alexandria's problems.
* MsFanservice: She gets a sex scene with Rick in "The Next World" where we see her naked backside. After officially becoming his girlfriend, she and Rick begin to share more sex scenes together more often.
* NoSocialSkills: Good against walkers, not that good with people. [[CharacterDevelopment She starts to grow out of this in Season 4.]]
* NotSoStoic: She finally breaks down and sobs in "After," which proves cathartic after everything she's been through since the apocalypse. She's also barely able to keep her cool when Carl is shot in the eye in "No Way Out".
* OddFriendship: Forms a pretty strong admiration of NonActionGuy Deanna.
* OfficialCouple: With Rick starting in the second half of Season 6.
* OneHitKO: Knocks Rick out cold in "Try" after he goes off the deep end while fighting Pete and pulls a gun on everyone.
* OneOfUs: InUniverse. She's a comic book fan, pocketing them on her scavenges. It's one of the things that she bonds with Carl over, and they both look for comics whenever they're on supply runs.
* OneManArmy: Her katana allows her to quickly dispatch multiple walkers in a short time at long range. In Season 4, she wipes out a small herd of walkers solo with just her katana. Later cuts a bloody swathe -- on two occasions -- through a massive walker horde in "No Way Out".
* OnlyOneName: She's never referred to as anything but "Michonne".
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Her infant son Andre was killed early in the apocalypse. She's trying her hardest to avert this with Carl and Judith.
* ParentalSubstitute: She takes over as a surrogate mother for Carl and Judith after Lori's passing. Carl more or less admits she's his mother now in "The Next World".
* PerpetualFrowner: During Season 3, she rarely has any expression on her face besides a distrusting or concerned frown. In Season 4, she is more open with her emotions and starts smiling a lot more.
* PluckyGirl: Not so obvious because of her [[TheQuietOne quiet demeanor]].
* PretendWereDead: Two variants:
** With her walker pack mules, their scent overcomes her own, which disguises herself partially to walkers.
** She also takes advantage of a time when she's CoveredInGunge to walk freely among the dead.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: In the comic book adaptation Rick's SecondLove was with Andrea. Due to Andrea's [[DeathByAdaptation early death at the end of season 3]] Michonne becomes Ricks SecondLove after his fling with RomanticFalseLead Jessie.
* ProperlyParanoid: She quickly picked up on the Governor's lies and all the subtle things wrong with Woodbury and decided to leave as quickly as possible.
* TheQuietOne: She never says any more than she has to, and often prefers to use a DeathGlare to communicate when people annoy her. Emphasize in "Hounded", where she has major role yet spends ''entire'' episode without any ''single'' word (not counting her grunts upon fighting walkers and Merle's group), at all. This changes in Season 4 as she becomes more acclimated to the group.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Tears Heath a new one when he accuses her of being a bad person, pointing out how he's never had to really fight for his survival in the apocalypse.
* RelationshipUpgrade: With Rick. They end up having sex and starting a relationship in "The Next World".
* SecondLove: As of Season 6, she enters a relationship with Rick after the death of RomanticFalseLead Jessie.
* ShutUpHannibal: In "Try", Rick goes completely off the deep end after fighting Pete, pulling a gun on the Alexandria citizens and giving them a huge TheReasonYouSuckSpeech where he pretty much says that he's going to take over Alexandria. So what does Michonne do? [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome She hits him in the back of the head, knocking him unconscious.]]
* ShootTheDog: Slicing the heads of her HumanPackMule so she and Andrea won't be caught by The Governor and his men. Merle still found them, however.

* SleepCute: She and Rick share an adorable scene where they're cuddling together.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Until the second half of Season 5, the only times we see her in one is when she's wearing her BlackCloak in the Season 2 finale and while wearing her green jacket from the comicbooks in the last two episodes of Season 3.
* TheStoic: She refuses to convey much emotion out of fear of being looked down upon as weak.
* SubmissiveBadass: When the Saviors dominate Alexandria, Rick coerces her to remain silent about it so nobody has to die by their hands ever again. While reluctant, she gives in and stands by Rick's decision.

* TookALevelInBadass: In season 7, Michonne finally learns how to use firearms.
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: She becomes more sociable and upbeat over time thanks to her friendship with Rick's group.
* TookALevelInKindness: The first time she met Rick's group, she was openly hostile towards him and completely disobeyed his direct orders when they infiltrated Woodbury, but she decided to stay with them until the Governor was off her back. However, she soon grew attached to the group, to the point of being regarded as one of their own.
* ToughLove: Punched out Rick while he was suffering a SanitySlippage in Alexandria in order to save him from himself.
* TranquilFury: In "Too Far Gone", when she and Hershel are taken hostage by The Governor. Returns again in Season 5 when Gareth and the Hunters threaten to hurt Judith and kill the rest of the group. She's fairly calm throughout most of their slaughter.

!!Bob Stookey
[[caption-width-right:300:''"Nightmares end. They shouldn't end who you are."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Lawrence Gilliard Jr.

-->''"Two times, two different groups. I was the last one standing. Like I was supposed to see it happen over and over, like it's some kind of curse."''

Bob Stookey is a former army medic who is recruited by Daryl and Glenn into the group during the TimeSkip between Seasons 3 and 4. Bob's struggles with his alcoholism cause the group much grief during his initial runs, getting one man killed and nearly compromising their effort to retrieve medicine to fight the plague wiping out the prison. Bob returns to the prison only to take part in the climactic final battle with The Governor that destroys his new home. However, to his relief, he finds himself surviving alongside Maggie and Sasha, breaking his streak of being the SoleSurvivor of any camp he joins.

He develops a relationship with Sasha, but tragically, he is bitten shortly after the group's successful escape from Terminus. Bob doesn't let anyone in on the secret, and soon finds himself as the dinner of Gareth and the Hunters, gleeful that they're apparently eating "tainted meat". He is returned to his group, and ultimately dies peacefully with Sasha after the Hunters are defeated, having left Rick some sage advice about how to keep on living.
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: Aside from the alcoholism, he is also plagued by his SurvivorGuilt.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Besides the RaceLift, his age is reduced for the show.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Possibly. His comic counterpart is a resident of Woodbury and is an ally of The Governor.
* AdaptationExpansion[=/=]AscendedExtra: In the comics, Bob was a minor character in Woodbury who saved the Governor's life. In the show he has an altered backstory (Here, he has nothing to do with Woodbury) and is a main character.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Grey in the comics, black in the show.
* TheAlcoholic: He has a rather severe drinking problem. In "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E0130DaysWithoutAnAccident 30 Days Without An Accident]]", he struggles to walk past some alcohol during a supply run and nearly takes some with him. In [[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E04Indifference Indifference]], he tells Daryl that the alcohol helps him cope with being the SoleSurvivor of two other groups, particularly when the silence of being alone got to him.
** It's to the point he nearly dies for the sake of saving a bottle of hooch and almost draws his gun when Daryl prepares to throw the bottle away.
* TheAloner: He's ended up as the SoleSurvivor of a group twice before joining Rick's group. Each time he suffered extreme loneliness being left on his own.
* AnArmAndALeg: A Type 3 occurs to him in "Strangers" when he is knocked out and captured by the Hunters. He awakens to find Gareth and the other cannibals had cut most of his left leg off to eat it.
* BadassAngster: Despite being a trained soldier and all-around competent fighter, he spends a good amount of time against angsting over his SurvivorsGuilt and alcoholism and other assorted problems.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: While not the first casualty of Season 5, he's the first member of Rick's group to die during the season.
* CombatMedic: He served in the army as a medic.
* CompositeCharacter: Since Dale dies early, Bob (or rather his leg) picks up his role as The Hunters' food and as the "tainted meat".
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Completely averted. Of [[DeathByChildbirth all]] [[EatenAlive the]] [[OffWithHisHead horrible]] [[BoomHeadshot deaths]] that have befallen the cast throughout the show, Bob gets probably the most peaceful, almost heartwarming death of all. He's bitten, and his leg is cut off and eaten by the Hunters, but he doesn't appear to be in any pain as he slowly dies. Not only does he die with the knowledge that his surrogate family have killed the Hunters, but he gets to say goodbye to all of them, and spends his final moments smiling with Sasha.
* DeadPersonConversation: Several episodes after his death, he appears to the dying Tyreese in a vision along with several other deceased characters.
* DeathByAdaptation: His comic counterpart is still alive according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki.
* ADeathInTheLimelight: Has a lot of screentime in his last two episodes.
* DefiantToTheEnd: Attempted this against the Hunters, but they didn't kill him after he mocked them by eating his "tainted meat".
* DissonantSerenity: After the fall of the prison, Bob is oddly cheerful and upbeat. Sasha tells him it's fine to be glad he is alive, but Bob tells her that isn't why he is smiling and doesn't elaborate. Later he reveals that he's smiling because he's broken his trend. Their group may have fallen apart, but he's not alone anymore.
** When he's captured by the Hunters and is being EatenAlive, he's rather amused, which eventually does unnerve the Hunters. He smugly reveals that he had been bitten, and they'd been eating "tainted meat".
* FaceDeathWithDignity: No hysterical struggling, he just calmly said goodbye to his surrogate family before he [[GoOutWithASmile goes out with a smile]].
* GoOutWithASmile: After briefly passing into unconsciousness, he claims he dreamed of Sasha smiling at him, and thus, he dies smiling with her at his side.
* HatesBeingAlone: Bob's main motivation. He's spent more time than he counted alone after two groups fell apart, so he'll readily risk his life and overcome any obstacle to avoid being alone again.
* IgnoredEpiphany: He feels bad that his rampant alcoholism indirectly killed Zach, but does not try very hard to stop himself.
* TheLoad: Only when he encounters alcohol. On his first scavenging mission for the group he brings disaster onto them by bringing a shelf down onto himself, becoming trapped and forcing the others to try and free him while fighting off walkers attracted by the commotion.
** On his second, Bob, while on a mission to get medical supplies, fails to get any and instead takes a bottle of hooch.
* MercyKill: The only person he had killed prior to joining the Prison community was a woman who asked to be killed.
* NiceGuy: Issues aside, he was generally friendly to everyone. The only real exception was when he threatened Daryl after the latter threatened to get rid of his booze, though they ultimately made up, and until his death he remained one of the most hopeful and upbeat survivors.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Him knocking over the alcohol shelf in "30 Days Without An Accident" while successfully resisting the urge to take some results in dozens of walkers falling through the roof of the store, one of which ends up killing Zach.
* OnlyAFleshWound: {{Averted}}: when the prison is attacked by the Governor again, Bob is shot through the right shoulder. He quickly has Maggie and Sasha check for an exit wound, and after they confirm there is one, he remarks that he can wait to treat it and resumes shooting. He treats it after the battle, but a few days later he is still bleeding from the wound and his right arm is noticeably weaker.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Though he doesn't know for sure if it'll kill them, he delivers a great one to the Hunters as he reveals they've been eating "tainted meat".
-->'''Bob:''' I've been '''bitten''', you stupid pricks! I'm '''tainted meat!!'''
* RaceLift: Was white in the comics, and now black for the show.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the TimeSkip.
* SacrificialLion: He is the first casualty of Rick's group in Season 5.
* ShipTease: With Sasha. They become an item in season five, briefly, until his death.
* SkewedPriorities: Due to his work as a medic, he feels the need to check a bullet wound ''while'' still fighting.
* SurvivorGuilt: A big issue for him. Before joining the prison group, Bob was reportedly part of two other groups, both of which he was the [[SoleSurvivor only survivor]]. He also expresses guilt over Zach's death, which he indirectly caused.
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: He started off as a very pessimistic and struggling alcoholic. He becomes more upbeat and optimistic over time.
* YoungerAndHipper: His comic counterpart is much older.
* ZombieInfectee: He's bitten early in Season 5 and dies of the bite in the next episode. His status as this, however, comes back to literally bite the Hunters in the ass when they eat his leg.

!!Dr. Caleb Subramanian

* EyeScream: His reanimated self gets a knife in the eye from Hershel.
* InSeriesNickname: Most of the characters call him Dr. S.
* TheMedic: He is the first actual doctor to join the group, and his medical knowledge comes in handy in figuring out that a disease killed Patrick and Charlie.

* NonActionGuy: Justified. He is TheMedic.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the TimeSkip.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Kyle Gallner

Zach is a college student who joined the group during the time skip between Season 3 and 4. He is dating Beth Greene.
* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* HeroWorshipper: Towards Daryl. Part of this is trying to guess what Daryl did before the ZombieApocalypse.
* EatenAlive: The walker that gets him begins eating him before a fallen helicopter breaks through the ceiling and [[MercyKill drops onto them]].
* LoveInterest: For Beth. Daryl even pokes fun at him for acting like a romance novel boyfriend.
* NiceGuy: What little we see of him makes him out as a nice, normal, down-to-earth guy.

* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining after the abandonment of Woodbury and the TimeSkip between seasons.

->'''Portrayed by:''' Brandon Carroll

* CanonForeigner: He never appeared in the comics.
* ContaminationSituation: David is isolated along with Karen in a cell after she mentions he too is showing symptoms of the sickness. She and David are then murdered and burned by Carol to stop the disease from spreading further.
* RedShirt: He gets no more screen time than the unnamed prison residents, and is only notable for having been murdered by Carol alongside Karen.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining after the abandonment of Woodbury and the TimeSkip between seasons.

!Samuels Family

!!Lizzie Samuels
[[caption-width-right:300:''"They're not dead, they're just...different."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Brighton Sharbino

Lizzie is the eldest daughter of Ryan. Her already disturbed mindset is being further twisted by the ZombieApocalypse.
* AgeLift: In the comic, Ben and Billy are twins. The show explicitly stated that she is Mika's older sister, and Mika herself appears to be the same age as the twins in the comics.
* AntiHero: Even for a ZombieApocalypse, this girl has some twisted morals. But she is arguably trying to do what she thinks is best. And then she ends up JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope.
* AxCrazy: Her behavior in the later half of Season 4 develops into textbook symptoms of violent mental instability. She secretly kills rabbits at night (and not for food), and almost kills Judith with a sense of fascination on her face. In "The Grove", she has degenerated to the point where she murders Mika so that she'll come back as a walker and would've done the same to Judith if Carol and Tyreese hadn't found her. It is implied that she showed some signs of mental illness before the ZombieApocalypse, since Mika has a system of making her look at flowers when Lizzie starts becoming severely agitated or crazy.
* BerserkButton: Killing her zombie playmates. She actually threatens to kill Carol, reduced to screaming and crying over it.
* BigDamnHeroes: She kills Alisha and another of the Governor's soldiers to save Tyreese.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Her morals are a bit off, even for the ZombieApocalypse. Killing people is fine, as they just come back as walkers. Shooting people in the head and killing walkers is murder though, as they don't keep walking around then.
* BoomHeadshot: She did this to Alisha during the third prison attack. Later, she's on the receiving end of this courtesy of Carol, after she and Tyreese agree that Lizzie is too unstable to be around people and a potential threat to Judith.
* CainAndAbel: She murders Mika to bring her back as a walker, to prove to Carol and Tyreese that there's nothing wrong with walkers. Somewhat subverted that there are no animosities between them.
* CanonCharacterAllAlong: She doesn't share a name with any character from the comics. It wasn't until her final episode where it's revealed that she's actually the {{Gender Flip}}ped Ben ([[DecompositeCharacter who actually appeared on the show]], [[InNameOnly but has nothing in common with his namesake]]).
* ChildrenForcedToKill: Leads the rest of the children in taking up arms during the prison battle in "Too Far Gone", and personally kills two of the Governor's soldiers.
* CreepyChild: She cares more about walkers than living people, and even her sister calls her "messed up". When Glenn coughs up a large amount of blood and mucus, Lizzie plays with the puddle with her toe. And she was the one who was feeding rats to walkers.
* CuteAndPsycho: Revealed to its full extent in "The Grove". Lizzie was the one who fed rats to the walkers, dissected live rabbits for fun, and believes walkers are just normal people and friendly. She ends up killing Mika so she will turn into a walker, and plans to kill everyone else in her group.
* DeadPersonConversation: She, Mika, and several other dead characters appear to the dying Tyreese to help him move on.
* DecompositeCharacter: While Ben already appeared in the show, she is the one receiving his CharacterDevelopment from the comics since he's an InNameOnly character who [[DeathByAdaptation bit it off way too soon]].
* DissonantSerenity: She acts far too calm around walkers, treating them like normal people.
* EasilyForgiven: Implied, at least from Tyreese's viewpoint. She's one of "good" hallucinations he saw while he's dying in "What Happened and What's Going On", only The Governor and Martin are "bad" hallucinations in said episode. Downplayed in that much of her behavior is suggested to be the result of psychosis rather than any actual malice.
* EnfantTerrible: Graduates to this in "Too Far Gone", when she guns down two attacking survivors without hesitation or conflicted emotions. Later in "Inmates", she considers smothering Judith when trying to keep her quiet. It blows up in "The Grove" in which she murders Mika and was about to murder Judith, too.
* {{Foil}}:
** She's most closely compared to Mika and by extension Sophia, having lost her innocence despite her similar upbringing and status. Carol tried to teach Lizzie to fend for herself, correcting her mistakes with Sophia, yet fails anyway as Lizzie is insane.
** Lizzie acts as a contrast to Carol in Season 4, as Carol acts strictly rational in comparison to Lizzie's irrationality. Carol accepts killing as a necessity, but does so only after deliberation and she hates it anyway. Lizzie meanwhile embraces death in all its forms without thought or real understanding.
** To Hershel. Both at first believe Walkers are just normal people (Though Hershel thinks it's a disease) and lose loved ones to it. However Hershel wises up to his mistake and kills Walkers to protect his friends and family wheres Lizzie never does and even kills her sister to prove her point.
* GenderFlip: Her comic counterpart Ben is male.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Prior to it, she makes some of the most compelling arguments a ZombieAdvocate in this universe can make -- namely that humans also kill, and that being reanimated as ''something'' is arguably better than nothing. Once she's cleared [[EnfantTerrible that slope, however...]]
* LackOfEmpathy: For humans at least. She shows empathy towards the walkers in a creepy way.
* LetThemDieHappy: Subverted. Carol attempts this when she puts down Lizzie, but Lizzie dies distressed and crying, believing that Carol is angry at her.
* LittleMissBadass: She's not even a teenager, but she can pull off headshots from several yards away. She later admits to Carol that this was an accident, since it prevented Alisha from coming back.
* ObliviouslyEvil: Lizzie does terrible things, but believes that she's doing the right thing and everyone else is wrong. Her reaction to killing Mika, which is exactly the same as Ben's reaction to killing Billy in the comic, is especially notable.
-->'''Lizzie:''' Don't worry, she'll come back! [[FateWorseThanDeath I didn't hurt her brain.]]
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the TimeSkip.
* ReplacementGoldfish: She and her sister appear to be becoming ones for Carol in place of Sophia.
* SiblingYinYang: In comparison to her sister, Lizzie is less emotionally strong and is creepily attached to walkers.
* TheSociopath: Lizzie had a lot of the early warning signs. Judging by her behavior, she likely would have become a full blown one as she got older.
* TagalongKid: Is obviously just a kid, and more often than not she's serving this role to Carol.
* TragicMonster: Played with. She goes from sympathizing with the Walkers to wanting to become one, and is on the verge of willingly allowing herself to be bitten. Like the Walkers she identifies with, she's not actively evil or intentionally malicious...just too dangerous to be allowed to continue living.
* TeamKiller: Killed her sister. She would have killed Judith too if Carol and Tyreese hadn't arrived.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Is showing signs of this throughout Season 4. Confirmed in "The Grove".
* TookALevelInBadass: In "Too Far Gone", when she finally puts Carol's weapons training to good use.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Names walkers and mourns their deaths more than humans, plays in gore with her boot, and guns down people. And to top it off, she murdered her own sister.
* {{Ubermensch}}: She often squabbles with other characters because of her own set of morality.
* TheUnfettered: If she wants to prove a point, she ''will'' prove it no matter what.
* WalkingSpoiler: Due to her actions in the latter half of Season 4.
* WouldHurtAChild: She nearly smothers Judith in an attempt to keep her quiet, and looks extremely fascinated while doing so. She later kills Mika, and was seconds away from killing Judith before Carol and Tyreese interrupted her.
* ZombieAdvocate: She argues that walkers are not dead, just different. She also argues that humans [[HumansAreBastards kill]], too. In "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E02Infected Infected]]", she is more upset that her favorite walker on the fence was killed (calling him special) than about her dad dying. When Carol kills a walker that Lizzie was "playing" with, she accuses her of murdering it. She even seems to prefer them to humans, as she kills her sister and almost kills Judith to make them into Walkers to "prove" that they're not so bad to Carol and Tyreese.

!!Mika Samuels
[[caption-width-right:300:''"We can't pretend anymore."'']]
->'''Portrayed by:''' Kyla Kennedy

Mika is the youngest daughter of Ryan.
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Lizzie's Cain. Somewhat subverted that there are no animosities between them.
* CanonCharacterAllAlong: She doesn't share a name with any character from the comics. It wasn't until her final episode where it's revealed that she's actually the {{Gender Flip}}ped Billy.
* TheCassandra: Comes right out and says that her sister is not weak but messed up in their second episode, but neither Carol nor anyone else really gets it until her last appearance.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: She won't even shoot a deer and sympathizes with hostile survivors, noting that they probably weren't like they are now before the ZombieApocalypse. She does shoot at walkers if she needs to, knowing (unlike her sister) that there is nothing human left in them.
* DeadPersonConversation: She, Lizzie, and several other dead characters appear to the dying Tyreese and help him move on.
* TheFettered: Despite Carol's attempts to harden her, she refuses to kill people, even to save herself.
* {{Foil}}: To her sister. Mika is younger, but more rational and knows that Walkers are dangerous but refuses to kill Humans because she thinks its murder, in contrast to Lizzie who thinks Walkers are just normal people and that killing Walkers is murder. That and Mika didn't go insane while Lizzie did.
* GenderFlip: Her comic counterpart, Billy, is male. She suffers the same fate, being gutted by her sibling so she can come back as a walker.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: In stark contrast to her sister.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: She's one of the few characters in the show to actually be a totally good person and refuses to kill because of this.
* KillTheCutie: Lizzie murders her to make a point to Carol. Carol makes sure to stab her head to prevent reanimation.
* NiceGirl: Very sweet and friendly to the group and gets along with Tyreese and Carol very well. She's probably one of the single nicest character put in the show.
* PrecociousCrush: Seemed to have developed one for Patrick, until he became a walker.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the TimeSkip.
* ReplacementGoldfish: She are her sister appear to be becoming ones for Carol in place of Sophia.
* SiblingYinYang: Despite being younger, Mika is much more rational and less creepy than her sister.
* TagalongKid: Tags along with Carol quite often, and is even younger than Carl. She gets better though, see TookALevelInBadass below.
* TechnicalPacifist: Against walkers. Against humans, she is more or less an ActualPacifist.
* ThouShallNotKill: A variation. She has no issues killing Walkers, but she believes killing Humans is murder. She refuses to hurt people as a result.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Like Sophia. Summed up by Carol when she says Mika "doesn't have a mean bone in her body".
* TookALevelInBadass: In "The Grove", in which she finally musters up the courage to shoot walkers dead. Nevertheless, she refuses to shoot people and can't bring herself to shoot a deer.

!!Ryan Samuels
->'''Portrayed by:''' Victor [=McCay=]

Ryan is a survivor who joined the prison community with his daughters Lizzie and Mika.
* CanonCharacterAllAlong: He doesn't share a name with any character from the comics. It wasn't until his daughters' final episode where it's revealed that they're actually the {{Gender Flip}}ped Ben and Billy, making him the equivalent of Allen ([[DecompositeCharacter who actually appeared on the show]], [[InNameOnly but has nothing in common with his namesake]]), which was supported as he got Allen's death scene in the comics.
* DecompositeCharacter: While Allen is already in the show, Ryan had perhaps Allen's most pivotal scene from the comics: he gets bitten and asks another member of the group to look after his two children when he dies.
* LifeOrLimbDecision: {{Subverted}}: Carol prepares to amputate his left arm after he gets bitten, but then notices a bite on the back of his neck, which seals his fate.
* MercyKill: After he dies, Carol stabs him in the head to prevent reanimation.
* RedShirt: He doesn't get much characterization before being bit and dying in "[[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS04E02Infected Infected]]".
* RememberTheNewGuy: Introduced in the Season 4 premiere. Justified due to numerous survivors joining during the TimeSkip.
* ZombieInfectee: He is bitten on his left arm and the back of his neck when walkers attack D-Block, and suffers for a while before dying.
