A list of the characters from the Creator/ComedyCentral series ''Ugly Americans'' and the tropes that define them.



[[folder: Mark Lilly]]
The main character. A human social worker in New York City, employed by the Department of Integration.

* {{Adorkable}}: Has shades of this.
* BadassNormal: He has his moments.
* BastardBoyfriend: To his college girlfriend, Jacqueline. The psychological damage he inflicted to her not only lowered her self esteem, but drove her to throw her life away so she'd one day become perfect for him. The real kicker? It was all over her not liking ''[[TrademarkFavoriteFood eggs]]''.
* BeleagueredBureaucrat
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Has some occasional flashes of a VERY dark side, mostly related to his obsession with eggs.
* ButtMonkey[=/=] TheChewToy
* CannotTellAJoke:
-->'''Mark:''' Twayne seems pretty horny. Maybe that's because he has horns on his head!
* ChickMagnet: Downplayed. Kind of. We don't see Mark get as many girls as Randall or even Leonard, but the girls he does get are flat out gorgeous (Lillith, Callie, Jacqueline). They also seem to form an obsession with him.
* CovertPervert: As nice a guy as he is, he did pick a succubus with a BDSM fetish to be his girlfriend.
* CulturedBadass: His craftiness, quick wit and knowledge of how to behave in social situations gets him out of a lot of ugly situations.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DesignatedVictim
* GeekyTurnOn
-->'''Callie:''' Uno is like third base to him!
* GoodIsNotDumb: Some episodes show that he's a lot more on the ball than people think. Particularly the one where he's forced into selling his super-sized soul to Aldremach [[spoiler: and gets it back by short-selling futures in the soul market, then spending the rest of the day debauching himself until his soul is the size of a pea. When Aldremach throws it out in disgust, he's able to get it back, along with 10 grand]].
* GuileHero: Surprises you sometimes when he connives his way out of trouble.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: To the point where his soul was enormous from performing only good deeds for his whole life. Though he is capable of being morally grey too.
* LoserProtagonist: Mark is sometimes portrayed as this, in-show.
* NiceGuy: His status as this is a borderline plot point.
* PungeonMaster: Apparently, a recreational pastime of his.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: He is the sensitive foil to both Leonard and Randall.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The straight man to Randall's wise guy.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Eggs. His obsession with them gets creepy very easily.
* UnderstandingBoyfriend: Most of the time with his girlfriends, the only exception being his girlfriend in college, who he coldly dumped while she was in the hospital because she was allergic to eggs. Eggs ''he'' forced her to eat.
* UnfazedEveryman
* UnluckyEverydude
* WeirdnessMagnet
* ZombieAdvocate: His defining characteristic.

[[folder: Callie Maggotbone]]
Mark's direct superior and on-again off-again girlfriend. A half-human succubus.

* AnythingThatMoves: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]].
-->"Just because [[AllWomenAreLustful I've gotta have it]] doesn't mean I don't have standards."
* ArrangedMarriage: To Twayne, although they don't go through with it though.
* AttractiveBentGender: As Dick. Complete with rippling muscles, GagPenis, and the voice of H. Jon Benjamin.
* BastardGirlfriend: She's pretty horrible to Mark most of the time, being half demon and all. But the times she ''does'' open up to him and show him her human side, it's almost always a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
** You really can't stress this enough, since the demons on the show are portrayed as virtually incapable of affection and love, even to their own families.
* UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}}: Callie's a ''big'' fan of this.
* BreastExpansion: In the "Demon Baby" episode, Callie's breasts swell when she comes near the demon baby that Mark is caring for. Then they start to lactate fire.
-->'''Mark''': Um, did your boobs just grow when you touched the baby?\\
'''Callie''': No.\\
'''Mark''': Are you sure? 'Cause I could have sworn. There, it happened again.\\
'''Callie''': Stop staring at my boobs.\\
'''Mark''': [[MaleGaze I can't]], so I'll go.
* CharacterDevelopment: Has become somewhat nicer as the series progresses.
* ClothingDamage: Happens a lot, [[MsFanservice naturally]], like when she transforms, or when she lactates fire.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Very often, but mostly out of self-centeredness rather than stupidity.
* DestructoNookie: Callie is very active in bed.
* DudeMagnet: Pretty much every single male in the DOI wants to sleep with her.
* FieryRedhead
* {{Gainaxing}}
* GreenEyedMonster: Despite asserting that she's in an open relationship with Mark, she gets incredibly distraught when Mark actually does find someone else to have sex with.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Has a human mother and a demon father.
* HornyDevils: In "Soulsucker" it's shown that she even has the ability to suck souls out through the urethra.
* PowerIsSexy
* ReallyGetsAround: Though she does get into a serious and monogamous relationship with Mark.
* TooKinkyToTorture
* VillainProtagonist
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: She has a larger, "more demonic" form with wings and talons. She can apparently extend and retract the wings at will.

[[folder: Randall Skeffington]]
Mark's slovenly zombie roommate.

* AnythingThatMoves: Including Great Brain's fiancée, and a blob creature.
--> '''Mark''': [[LampshadeHanging It is literally anything that moves with you, isn't it?]]
* BiTheWay
* BrainFood
* BromanticFoil: To Mark
* BodyHorror: Being a living corpse, Randall's body is in a state of decay, and parts of him are often falling off or gets replaced. And then there's the time [[ItMakesSenseInContext he got turned into a giant flower]].
* CatchPhrase: Whenever something bad happens, Randall lets out a drawn-out [[OhCrap "craaaaaaap!!"]]
* FriendsRentControl: He has no odentifiable job, but still seems to pull through somewhat. Though there's implications that he gets money out of selling sex tapes of Mark and Callie.
* {{Jerkass}}: Though not without the very rare PetTheDog moments here and there.
* TheSlacker
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The wise guy to Mark's straight man.

[[folder: Leonard Powers]]
The wizard of social services, and Mark's co-worker at the DOI.

* TheAlcoholic
* AmbiguouslyHuman
* AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt: After the [[MonstersAnonymous Department of Integration]] is shut down in the "Kong of Queens" episode, he goes on a bit of a bender. He ends up being worshipped a la [[Film/ApocalypseNow Colonel Kurtz]] and is later seen wearing a shirt saying "I was a demigod and all I got was this lousy t-shirt".
* BerserkButton: "Shark Week is a national treasure!"
* BrilliantButLazy: Often too lazy/drunk to do anything useful, but is actually quite knowledgeable and can accomplish a lot when properly motivated.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Despite looking human, wizards are apparently a separate species, as shown in the episode where its revealed that they lay an egg that will hatch into their successor.
* CatchPhrase: "Magic!"
* {{Dismotivation}}: Leonard is a fairly powerful wizard, knows a lot about the bizarre processes of New York, and can be downright helpful at times. He's just very, very lazy.
* {{Expy}}: He's basically a comedic version of [[Literature/HarryPotter Dumbledore]].
* JerkAss
* MrExposition: Leonard is usually the one to explain the various fantasy elements in the series.
* MundaneUtility: His use of magic can fall under this sometimes, such as using his wand as a slideshow projector.
* SiblingRivalry: He's jealous of his much more successful brother.
* WitchSpecies
* WizardBeard
* WizardsLiveLonger: Somewhere in his fourth century.

[[folder: Twayne Boneraper]]
A demon; Mark, Callie, and Leonard's superior at the DOI.

* ArrangedMarriage: To Callie, although they don't go through with it though.
* BlackAndNerdy: Twayne fits this to a T, given his voice and some of the stuff that happens to him (e.g. getting a nosebleed while traveling down to Hell due to the change in altitude). One of the few characters to pull this ''and'' ScaryBlackMan off simultaneously.
* CampStraight
* CannotTellAJoke:
-->'''Twayne:''' What's the difference between a demonic council and a room full of chickens with their heads cut off? The chickens have far superior mid- to upper-level management skills! HI-YO!
* CasanovaWannabe
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: As shown in "G.I. Twayne", if given proper motivation, Twayne has the capacity [[spoiler: to take over the world with the forces of Hell]].
* GentleGiant: Though visually very imposing, Twayne is a big creampuff at heart, and highly naive to boot.
* {{Jerkass}}: Has waned in later episodes
* KarmaHoudini
* ManChild: When he goes to his family's house for Samhain, he wears goofy pajamas and reads comic books with a flashlight at night.
** He's also ''ecstatic'' over the prospect of going to Summer Camp, to the point of forgetting the reason for being there in favor of carving a ([[HiddenDepths rather ornate]]) totem pole.
** He also can't poop away from home [[spoiler: due to abandonment issues.]]
* MommasBoy
* PointyHairedBoss: And he's got [[IncrediblyLamePun TWO POINTS]].
* ScaryBlackMan: Ordinarily, demons on the show are portrayed as upper-class, [=WASPy=] types; Twayne is the only exception to date.
* VillainProtagonist

[[folder: Frank Grimes]]
The chief of law enforcement, and a foul-tempered foil to Mark. Prejudiced toward non-humans, he'd rather see them all deported.

* AFatherToHisMen: Frank Grimes tries to be this, but given the HighTurnoverRate of said men, they're understandably skeptical.
* TheAtoner: He never quite got over having accidentally killed his partner in his rookie days. [[spoiler: Turns out he didn't really... and later in life he accidentally shot him ''again''.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: In less than a season, he went from being an angry, frothing-at-the-mouth racist, violent cop to a mildly short-tempered clown who seems to berate the non-humans because he feels he's expected to.
* GagPenis: Grimes' wang is big enough to be used as a bludgeon.
* LikesOlderWomen
* MyBelovedSmother: Has a ''very'' rocky relationship with his mummy. [[spoiler: who is literally a mummy]]
* NobleBigotWithABadge

[[folder: Aldremach Maggotbone]]
The highest ranking demon in Hell and Callie's father.

* AffablyEvil
* BigBad
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Owns "Maggotbone Soul Industries", and is willing to [[spoiler:steal Mark's soul for profit.]]
* LargeAndInCharge
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Seems to be standard for demons.
* ObnoxiousInLaws: Strongly dislikes Mark.
* {{Satan}}: Kind of. While he is referred to as "the Devil", this appears to be a title for the current head of Satan's line. It doesn't mean much either, as Hell is currently owned by a conglomerate of Japanese businessmen.
