MAJOR SPOILER: It was revealed that Every single retired Champion has been killed by the Nomad named Omega, as part of said Nomad's plan to dispose of the rest of his own brethren.
Hahli was a shy but diligent Ga-Matoran native who was a student on Metru Nui and the Chronicler, and later became the Toa Inika of Water, and shortly later the Toa Mahri of Water and helped guard Metru Nui. Like most Toa of Water, Hahli was generally kind and gentle. Prior to being selected for the Ga-Koro Kolhii team, she was mostly shy and reserved. As a Toa, she later became more self-confident, and in The Pit, was much more aggressive.
As a Toa of Water, Hahli could create, control, and absorb water and like the other Toa Inika, her water powers were combined with lightning. After being changed by the Mask of Life, Hahli's elemental powers were returned to normal level, meaning they weren't combined with electricity.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Do not piss her off.
- Heroic BSoD: At the start of the Magical Girl challenge, due to not having her mask.
- Mechanical Lifeforms: As a Toa, this is to be expected.

Chief Warrant Officer Jorge-052 is a SPARTAN-II commando of the United Nations Space Command. A Nomad found him on an alien ship orbiting above the besieged UNSC colony known as Reach. A SPARTAN-III known as Noble Six was with him, but Jorge volunteered to activate the bomb manually while Six fell back towards the planet. The Nomad snatched Jorge away right before he was caught in the blast. Next thing the SPARTAN-II knew, he was trapped in a hotel with a bunch of strangers. Jorge is a passionate, well-mannered human being, but he is absolutely lethal in a fight. Up until he was taken, Jorge was part of a squad of Spartans called Noble Team. His call sign was Noble Five. He rejoins the squad in the Halo Reach challenge.
- Badass Beard
- Bash Brothers: With Craft.
- Berserk Button: If Jorge sees you hurt an innocent, he will chew your ass out. If you kill an innocent around him, kiss your ass goodbye.
- Saren. He loathes the alien, more so than Ravage. Throttling a child, then seemingly trying kill the whole group with his mind seems to have something to do with it.
- BFG: His M247H Heavy Machine Gun.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Just look what happened to Travis in Blood Feud.
- And Tron on Reach.
- The Big Guy
- Cyborg: He received several augmentations while he was in the SPARTAN-II training program.

- The Hero: Out of all the good characters, Jorge is the one who usually calls the shots.
- Heroic BSoD: Has one in the Reach challenge, and boy, is it a big one. He gets to New Alexandria Hospital's helipad, only to see the city being glassed. Seeing your homeworld burn around you is bad enough. Realizing that your sacrifice changed nothing is so much worse.
- Lightning Bruiser: No matter what heavy weapon Jorge is carrying, whether it's an HMG or a missile launcher, he'll still outrun you.
- More Dakka: Courtesy of his M247H.
- Never Hurt an Innocent: Jorge is very sympathetic to plight of the innocent. He will do whatever he can to protect civilians from harm, and he will kill the shit out of anyone who dares to murder them.
- Old Soldier: He is 41 years old.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: He's received treatment for PTSD, and he hasn't relapsed. Yet.
- Super Strength: The guy can flip tanks!

Gordon Freeman is a theoretical physicist who originally worked in the Black Mesa Research Institute. After the inadverdent release of hordes of alien lifeforms into his home dimension, Gordon was forced to kill many of these creatures, eventually killing the leader. Afterwords, he was taken into stasis by a mysterious individual. Twenty years later, he was dropped into an earth controlled by a tyrannical alien empire known as the Combine by an unknown person named the G-Man.
After battling with the Resistance to liberate earth, he was suddenly plucked from the middle of one of the battles by the Nomads.

- Badass Bookworm: Gordon's a theoretical physicist with an arsenal that allows him to take out squads of cyberneticaly-enhanced soldiers.
- Badass Normal: He also does this without any special abilities.
- Butt-Monkey: In the Magical Girl challenge. Everything bad that you could imagine happens to hir. Tripping all the time? Yep. Getting yelled at by the sadist economics teacher? Uh-huh. Continuously being molested by a sex-crazed classmate? Oh, yeah. Dropping her pants in front of everyone else? You bet. Will this poor girl's suffering never end?
- Cluster F-Bomb: When he starts doing this, something very bad is usually happening.
- Hyperspace Arsenal
- Knight In Sour Armor
- O.C. Stand-in: Gordon has absolutely no lines or personality in the actual games. Therefore, this was kind of necessary.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: If you piss Gordon off, expect to be struck with this.
- The Smart Guy
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Omega impales him with a mechanical tentacle in one of the penultimate fights. He survives.
- Determinator: After destroying the Combine Overworld, Gordon refuses to let anything kill him. Not even being impaled by a nomad does him in.
- Screw Destiny: The destruction of the Combine Overworld gives Gordon the will to do this, to the point where her kills the G-man to get home.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: Gordon destroys the Combine Overworld in a challenge that nearly cost him his life, dragged himself through wound after wound in the finale, refused to die even after being impaled, and finally killed a being equatable to fate itself to ensure that earth would be safe. And after going through all of this, he finally gets to go home and have a rest.

Travis Touchdown is an American video game antihero who first appeared in the 2008 Wii video game No More Heroes. 27 years old in No More Heroes, he is both an otaku and a professional assassin, wielding a beam sword weapon. He was created by No More Heroes director Goichi Suda, and voiced by Robin Atkin Downes. He later appeared in the 2010 video game No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, which takes place three years later.
He is named after the protagonist of the film Paris, Texas directed by Wim Wenders. He lives a lifestyle that is often compared to those of average people because of his obsession with anime, professional wrestling, pornography, and action figures; however, this lifestyle has also been called an "uber male fantasy."

- Cool Shades
- Comedic Heroic Sociopath
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Not seen since shortly before the start of the Reach challenge.

- What Happened to the Mouse?: Disappeared after the Magical Girl challenge.
Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid video game series. Introduced in the 1986 video game Metroid, Samus is a female ex-marine bounty hunter usually fitted with a powered armor suit with weapons that include beams and missiles. Throughout the series, she executes missions given to her by the Galactic Federation while hunting the antagonistic Space Pirates and their leader, Ridley, along with the energy-draining extraterrestrial parasites called Metroids. Orphaned at a young age, Samus was brought up by the extraterrestrial avianoid Chozo race, who trained her as a warrior. The Chozo also gave her the Power Suit, and infused her with their blood in order to create a perfect warrior. This blood infusion gives Samus the ability to transform herself into a sphere named the Morph Ball in order to roll through tight areas such as tunnels.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Briefly appeared before and during the Magical Girl challenge, then vanished.
- Tron Lines: As expected.
- Straw Vulcan: He came off as this during the Reach challenge, prioritising completion of the challenge itself over trying to save as many innocent lives as was possible. This put him at odds with Jorge, and after a war of words he was thrown out of a flying gunship to what seemed a certain demise.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Averted. Phi sent him home as part of a deal.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: After all, he became a necromancer (and later a Lich) only to free his hometown, Parthyn, from the menace of Orc raids.

- Dem Bones: And a really bizzare version of a skeleton too.
- He Who Fights Monsters: He's even listed so at Wesnoth's page.
- Black Magic: His entire spell repertiore is that.

- Even Evil Has Standards: He detests Demons.
- Evil Is Deathly Cold: His mere touch drains the life-force.
- Human Sacrifice: and himself of all people.

- No-Sell: His player did this at his battle with Harry Dresden in the Reach challenge. Cue Tribunal, nerf, and loss.
- Deader Than Dead: Completely destroyed by Galen Marek. Or so it seems...
- Not Quite Dead: He's stuck in his phylactery, which is his old sword. He gave it to Rey as a gift.
The world's greatest roadie. Eddie is an old school metalhead who dreams of the days when heavy metal was pure. He was transported to a mythical land of metal after an accident at a concert resulted in his near-death. After waging several wars on hair-metal traitors, Emo Teens and Bondage Demons, he found himself transported to this new world, surrounded by strangers.
- An Axe to Grind
- The Big Guy: Though he's not stupid.
- Dark Is Not Evil: See below. In spite of his demonic abilities, Eddie is still a really nice and decent person.
- Deadpan Snarker
- The Engineer
- Half-Human Hybrids: To be specific, Eddie appears to be part demon, and he can transform into a demonic form under certain circumstances.
- Hidden Depths: Eddie has come up with a few smart ideas from time to time, such as how to complete the Bloodfeud challenge in a way that wouldn't end in total bloodshed.
- I Call It "Vera": His guitar, Clementine.
- Musical Assassin
- Only Sane Man: Possibly.
- The Power of Rock
- Power Gives You Wings: He gains a pair of enormous leathery bat's wings when in demon form.

A Wizard (the only one in the Chicago phonebook, at that) and Private Investigator, Dresden is a powerful magician. He has seen and thought any number of strange things in the past and has accumulated an arsenal of magic and artifacts for fighting off mundane and supernatural threats. He awoke in the Lounge after being shot by an unknown assassin.
- Badass Longcoat
- Chronic Hero Syndrome
- Fantastic Racism: Accused of this towards the Obviously Evil necromancer Mal-Keshar by Rey. Given Mal-Keshar went on to kill Gordon and try to kill Harry, it seems he may have been right.
- First-Person Smartass: He is unique in that he narrates his own actions in first person, like in the books.
- Full-Contact Magic: He's as likely to blast you away with magic as to punch you in the face.
- Kill It with Fire: In addition to regular fire, sometimes uses Soulfire, white fire he can make constructs out of which is Cast from Hit Points because he uses his soul as fuel
- Knight in Sour Armour
- Pragmatic Hero: Given he's perfectly fine with Jorge killing the defenceless Mal-Keshar. Further supported by his actions in the books, where he breaks a vilain's kneecaps with a baseball bat after he'd surrendered (although he was surrendering solely so he could get away with his crimes without retribution).
- Occult Detective
- Walking Techbane: Tends to short out any electrical appliance near him when he uses magic. This is addressed when he nearly kills Tron, forces Ravage to go into Beast Mode (His aura acts like corrupt energon radiation to cybertronians), and messes up Craft's systems. Psi cures him of it, on the grounds that he won't be any fun to watch if he can't interact with the others.
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Attacks Ravage and Saren because they attacked Samus. It's clearly stated that this was because she was a girl, rather than anything else.
A flower-Youkai from Gensokyo. She was taken from her home in the Dream World Mugenkan with no idea why she was, and has absolutely no interest in finding out. As far as she knows, whatever kidnaps a Youkai needs a laser to the face. As a being born from the magic of nature, she has to struggle to fight out or her element during the challenges.
Yuuka is a rather powerful and dangerous flower-loving Youkai. In Lotus Land Story, Reimu and Marisa break into her mansion in the dream world of Mugenkan, and she defends herself. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, she goes out to enjoy herself, trying to remember why the event that touches off the game's story seems familiar.
- Berserk Button: Don't touch the flowers.

- Doppel Ganger Attack
- Flower Motifs: It's her thing.
- Lady of War: Drinks tea and fights with flowers.
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
- Green Thumb
- Wave Motion Gun: The Master Spark.
- Weapon of Choice: A ParasolOfPain, which is actually a flower that never withers.
A rugged and ready crack shot from the Australian outback, the Sniper prefers to pick his targets off from a distance, though he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty if the situation requires. Preferring to hide in elevated or hard-to-see spots, the Sniper can pick off slow moving classes like the Heavy with ease. The Sniper is also ideal for eliminating enemy Medics, giving his team a chance to advance. While the Sniper tends to isolate himself from the frontlines, the Huntsman sees him move up the field, laying down suppressing volleys of arrows while his ancient and mysterious Jarate powers can increase damage dealt against his foes by himself and teammates alike. The Sydney Sleeper also allows the Sniper to go up to the front lines and fight more effectively.
In his former life as a tracker of dangerous game in the unforgiving Australian outback, the Sniper would spend months by himself. Prolonged isolation taught him a valuable lesson: You don't have to rely on other people if you never miss.
- Cannot Spit It Out: When asked about the jar he carries, the Sniper insists that he can't talk about it.
- Cold Sniper: Depends on the situation.
- Cool Shades: Wearing them.
- Crazy-Prepared: He always has a plan.
- Land Down Under: You can tell from his Australian Accent.
- No Hard Feelings: When he does his sniping on the enemy.
Allen Walker is an Exorcist of the religious organization known as the Black Order. He is the adopted son of Mana Walker, adopted nephew of Nea Walker, and is the apprentice to Cross Marian. He is the main protagonist of the D.Gray-Man series. Allen was abandoned by his biological parents because of the supposed "deformity" of his left arm (which was later revealed to be caused by his Innocence). He was eventually found and adopted by a traveling performer named Mana Walker on Christmas Day. Some time later Mana died, and Allen, tormented with grief and manipulated by the Millennium Earl, turned Mana into an Akuma, hoping that his beloved surrogate father would be fully resurrected. But the Mana Akuma cursed Allen and sliced through his left eye, leaving the "Pentacle" — the mark of the Akuma — which scars the left side of his face. This enabled his left eye to see the souls trapped within the Akuma from then on. It was at this same moment that Allen's left arm first invoked as an Anti-Akuma weapon, which instinctively destroyed the Mana Akuma. During the course of this traumatic event, Allen's hair turned from brown into a stark white.
Allen eventually meets Cross Marian, a General of the Black Order, who explained to Allen the ways of the Akuma and the trapped souls within them: once a soul is brought back inside an Akuma, they are trapped forever; the only way to save one is to exorcise them from their Akuma vessel. Allen subsequently became Cross' disciple and spent the next three years with him before being sent to the Black Order to become an official Exorcist. During this time, Allen was tormented by his master's constant irresponsible behavior and forced into various odd jobs to pay off the debts that General Cross accumulated.
While Allen is good in swordsmanship, he has an anti-Akuma weapon that he uses in combat. Called the Cross, it's a rare, parasite-type Innocence that shares a symbiotic relationship with Allen's body. It appears as a cross-shaped shard embedded in the back of his left hand, which causes his entire left arm to appear red, scaly, and deformed. As a parasite-type, it is capable of both invoking and acting of its own accord, such as when it destroyed Mana's Akuma or regenerated the portion of Allen's heart that was hollowed out by Tyki Mikk's Tease. Allen can use his Cursed Eye to see souls trapped in Akuma.

- Broken Hero: Got a case of bad childhoold.
- Creepy Cool Crosses
- Cursed with Awesome
- Detect Evil: See Magical Eye
- Facial Markings: You can see it in his face.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a scar through his left eye, which is part of the curse that allows him to see Akuma. And he received a bunch of huge, deep scars across his entire chest from impaling himself with his own Akuma-purifying sword, which he thought shouldn't hurt him... except for the unfortunate fact that he's actually a Noah.
- Hilariously Abusive Childhood: His childhood under General Cross is played as this.
- Magical Eye: His left eye lets him see the souls of Akuma.
- The Soulsaver: Saving humans and akuma, according to his vows.
- White Gloves: Always wears them.
- White Hair, Black Heart: An inversion; white-haired bishonen he may be, but he's an All-Loving Hero.
- Badass Mustache
- Big Eater
- Good Ol' Boy
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Sliding Scale of Libertarianism and Authoritarianism: Ron's political philosophy falls quite far on the Libertarian side. He has explicitly referred to himself as a Libertarian a number of times and sees no value in government-run institutions to the point of wanting everything privatized.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat
- Only Sane Man
- Professional Slacker
- Real Men Eat Meat: To the point that he thinks fish are acceptable to catch, but not to eat since "fish meat is practically a vegetable".
- Unfazed Everyman: Compared to everyone else in the cast.
Dexter was in a litter of five kittens that were abandoned at a Brooklyn animal shelter. Dexter was then taken in by a lonely woman who lived in a small city apartment. The apartment was broken into one night during a robbery. Dexter attacked the intruder, waking the woman up. She was then murdered by the intruder. When the police came to investigate the murder, Dexter was kicked away from the apartment by the policemen and left to fend for himself in a nearby alley. Dexter was later picked up and put in a sack by two men, who intended to throw him over the edge of a bridge to drown when a red power ring found him in mid fall. "Dex-Starr of Earth. You have great rage in your heart. You belong to the Red Lantern Corps." Dex-Starr now seeks the man who killed his owner so he can kill him.
As a Red Lantern, he killed the two thugs and in tears, makes it his mission to hunt down and kill the man who killed his original owner. It should be noted that Dex-Starr wore a collar with the name "Dexter" on it and all humans called him by that name, the red ring is the first to call him Dex-Starr. Dex-Starr's thoughts and feelings are expressed using the same short, simplified sentences used by the character of Krypto. He is currently traveling with Atrocitus on earth, in search of the Red Entity known only as "The Butcher".
As he is a member of the Red Lantern Corp., the cat derives his powers from the Red Lantern.
- Badass Adorable
- Badass Creed: "I find one who hurt you. I kill. I good kitty."
- Cats Are Mean
- Cute Kitten: Invokes this to get close enough to attack.
- Right-Hand Cat
- Talking Animal: Thanks to the Translator Microbes in the power rings. One of his greatest regrets is that he couldn't talk to his owner, as her final words to him were: "You make my life better you silly cat, and I know if you could talk, you would tell me the same thing."
Jack Noir is an Archagent of Derse who appears in every session of SBURB. He oversees various affairs of the kingdom and does all of the most important and most tedious paperwork, and is the direct subordinate of the King and Queen. In the kids' session, he slew the Queen, and soon after, the King, declaring himself as the Sovereign Slayer and wreaking havoc on the Medium. In the trolls' session, he was able to enlist the help of Karkat Vantas and the Red Team to exile the Black Queen (who became Snowman), and at some point was exiled himself, becoming first a Scurrilous Straggler and then Spades Slick, leader of the Midnight Crew.
When he was introduced, Jack appeared to be a normal-looking Dersite wearing a multi-colored jacket with a spade on the lower right. He particularly despised wearing his Jester's hat. Jack Noir was also seen without his outfit on after it appeared to be affected by Rose Lalonde's Prototyping involving the Eldritch Princess, giving it a pink frilly skirt and a hat similar to that of the princess. Jack looks exactly like Spades Slick of the Midnight Crew, to the point that the player tries to name him Spades Slick. Jack Noir is the first major character, beyond than the four protagonists, who the player attempts to name. Spades Slick does come from the same character template, but he is the instance of Jack from the Trolls' session, entirely seperate from the Jack in the Kids' game.
Jack has no tolerance for things he doesn't want to do. His vicious demeanor, sarcastic nature and nasty attitude are readily apparent, and he exhibits a lack of concern for life that isn't his own. Despite his bad behavior, Jack seems to have some sense of honor - even at times when it would seem at odds with what would be most intelligent.
- I Have Many Names: Jack Noir, Sovereign Slayer, Bec Noir, "the demon," and possibly Lord of Angels.
- Knife Nut
- Meaningful Name: Starts with his name.
- Nice Hat: Ain't it?
- Villain Protagonist
Red is a powerful Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town, Kanto. He is the first character to be playable in the Pokémon series and his initial appearence is set in the Generation I main games. He has since then made various appearences in Pokémon media, including the Generation III remakes of Pokémon Red, Green and Blue, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. Red is also known to be one of the final trainers you fight in the Generation II games. In Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal. Red is fought at Mt. Silver, in which he has Pokemon similar to Ash of the anime (except for the fact the three starters are fully evolved). Red also retakes this role in HeartGold and SoulSilver. In games other than the Kanto based games, particularly particularly Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver, he seems like a shady character who has strong Pokemon. Red is also a silent protagonist just like the main characters from the Mother series called Ninten, Ness and Lucas. Red is the highest leveled trainer of any Pokemon game.
Red is sent on a journey to better himself as a trainer and a person, displaying amazing feats of courage and a strong sense of justice. Red started his Pokémon journey with a Bulbasaur he received from Professor Oak, which evolved into Ivysaur and later Venusaur. Red becomes the champion of the Pokémon League after beating Blue, defeating Giovanni and Team Rocket. Nothing is heard of from him ever since. Red's story continues through the Sevii Islands, where he aids Celio, a man attempting to make communications reach the Hoenn region, by recovering pieces of Ruby and Sapphire, needed for the machine Celio had been preparing to work. While he is there, he finds remaining Team Rocket grunts, who are presumably the ones who rejoin it into Neo Team Rocket. Red eventually joins the Elite Four soon after.
His six Pokémon, after becoming a Champion, consist of a Level 73 Espeon, a Level 75 Snorlax, a Level 77 Blastoise, Charizard and Venosaur and a Level 81 Pikachu. Red's not a trainer someone should mess with.
- Curtains Match the Window: Unfortunately he's used as a template for Ash in the anime and the manga counterpart in Pokemon Adventures.
- Friend to All Living Things: Red is to Pokémon, especially when he catches them from the wild.
- The Hero: He's referred to as this in the Gen II and the Gen IV remakes. He's also the protagonist in the Red/Blue games.
- Heroic Mime: Doesn't talk much.
- Hot-Blooded: Red was, according to one part of the Game Boy games.
- Iconic Outfit: His old clothes.
- Nice Hat: Don't you like the cap?
- Schrödinger's Player Character: At least in the remake versions.
- The Beastmaster: Since Red's a Pokémon trainer and all that jazz...
- Younger Than They Look: Depends on your view.
The strongest member of Orochimaru's elite Sound Five. The last member of a clan of Blood Knights who were killed off after attempting to revolt against the Hidden Mist Village. Taken in by Orochimaru, who he idolized. He was originally supposed to be Orochimaru's next vessel, but he contracted a terminal illness (likely tuberculosis), which prevented this. The others didn't want him to join, but as he was able to kick their asses all at once, they didn't have much of a choice.
He has a kekkai genkai which allows him to control the growth of his bones, which are harder than steel. He can cause them to protrude from his body as Spikes of Doom, or remove them from his body entirely to use as weapons. (They evidently grow back instantaneously.) This reaches squicky levels at times, for example when he pulls out his own spine to use as a weapon. His Cursed Seal form is a dinosaur-like creature.
Fought Naruto Uzumaki, then Rock Lee, and then Gaara. He beat the first two without much difficulty, but was nearly buried alive by Gaara. He managed to break free (which should have been physically impossible), but succumbed to his illness before he can land the killing blow. He was resurrected three years later by Kabuto Yakushi using Edo Tensei. During his time being made to fight against the Shinobi Alliance, Kimimaro learned the horrifying truths behind his old master, and thanks to Naruto Uzumaki and Juugo (Kimimaro's most trusted friend), he foresook the role of the villain and found emotional closure, which broke Kabuto's hold over him. After his zombie body decayed into dust and his soul was loosed, the Nomads brought him back to play the role of a Challenger. He is now trying to fit in with the role of a good guy, and so far hasn't screwed up.
- Back from the Dead: Twice; once from Kabuto, and once from the Nomads. He's hoping that this time, his eventual death will be more dignified than his first two.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Samurai Jack toward the end of the Combine Overworld challenge.
- Badass Boast: "We will stop this apocalypse, and we will kill anyone you send to get in our way. By my hand armies and titans have fallen. I have defied gods and demons. I am my own shield and the shield of my Nakama, as well as their sword and mine. I know your type; I've seen scum like you in the past... and will live to slay more in the future. This... will not be the way the world ends."
- Bad with the Bone: As explained to Dr. Langley (while fighting off Morlocks):"It allows me" (SLASH) "to control my skeletal structure to incredible levels. I can" (STAB) "generate bone from any part of my body, and can also" (CRUNCH) "remove bones, modified, to use as weapons. Of course, any bone I" (SLICE) "remove grows back nigh-instantaneously, along with any soft tissue that was" (STAB) "damaged during its exit. I can also make my bones stronger" (STAB; a Morlock's dying screech) "than tempered steel, and in times of need I can make a layer of this ultra-tough bone just beneath my skin. With the strength" (SLASH) "of my bones, and my healing factor, my speed, and my skill in defensive swordsmanship as well as offensive, it is extremely difficult" (STAB) "to deal any lasting harm to me. I am the only surviving individual who" (SLICE) "possesses this ability; all the rest of my clansmen are dead, though considering that they" (CRACK) "were all bloodthirsty psychopaths, this is a good thing. I do hope" (STAB) "to have children eventually, though, and start my clan anew as a less psychotically-unstable force.""
- Beware the Nice Ones / Not So Stoic: Kimimaro is one of the nicest, most amicable of the group, yet push him too far and he shows just why he was Orochimaru's premier spec-ops leader. His detached cheeriness gets thrown out the window during the Semi-Final Challenge of Season 1, when Administrator Washington tries to stop the gang from saving the planet one too many times:"The blood of millions stains your hands..." Kimimaro snarled at the comm, "and if you seek to bar our path and doom this world, we will ensure that their hands drag your black soul to the lowest of the Hells. The holy eyes of the Six-Paths Sage will sear you with their gaze, and after he and your victims cast you down the 10-Tailed Daemon shall feast upon your forever-damned soul!"
- Blood Knight: He despises senseless killing, but he still loves the thrill of battle.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Fairly skilled in Earth Release techniques.
- Ill Boy / Incurable Cough of Death: His first life was ended by a particularly nasty strain of tuberculosis. Thankfully, his new/current body is perfectly fine.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: Averted. He seems to be adjusting rather well to the new technology now available to him. It helps that, with the exception of vehicles, weapons, and a few other things, his world's tech level isn't very far behind ours.
- Flash Step: Quite good at this. Even better at it with his Cursed Seal active.
- Genius Bruiser: Well, not quite genius level, but still very well-learned.
- Good Feels Good
- HeelFace Turn: Made it before being made a Challenger.
- Last of His Kind: Last of the Kaguya, though considering what his clanmen were like, this is a good thing. Also, he hopes to start rebuilding his clan as a peacekeeping force if he escapes the Nomads alive.
- Lightning Bruiser: Can move damn fast, and can hit much harder and take much more punishment than his lithe frame would suggest.
- Lovecraftian Superpower: Dude pulls his bones out to use as weapons. Safe to say that qualifies.
- Marked Change: His Cursed Seal.
- Master Swordsman
- One-Winged Angel: His Cursed Seal's second stage
- Religious Bruiser
- Spikes of Doom: Can produce these at will from nearly any part of his body.
- The Stoic
- This Is a Drill: His Tessenka no Mai: Hana creates a huge bone drill around his arm. Shown to be able to punch through Striders with very little difficulty.
- Younger Than They Look: Looks and acts like a grown man. He's actually 15.
Jack is the son of the Japanese Emperor who ruled the area where Aku originally appeared on Earth, and is banished to the future by Aku during their first battle, where he is left in every episode to search for a way home. He was born on the day that his father defeated Aku and he seems to be the only mortal (aside from his father) to be a match to Aku. As a boy, after his father was captured by Aku, Jack traveled around the world to prepare both physically and mentally for his confrontation with Aku. He studied under various scholars, such as Egyptian thinkers, and attempted to master each art of combat from the cultures he met, training with African warriors, Viking sailors, Robin Hood, Mongolian warriors, Shaolin monks, Greek Olympic contestants, Russian Cossacks, and several others. The only time Young Jack has spoken is in Season 3, Episode 5: "Jack in Egypt".
Later, after being sent into the future, he is taught the ability to jump hundreds of feet into the air by a species of blue gorilla and a jungle man, thus allowing him to reach vast areas he previously could not reach while also giving the impression that he can fly. Jack's magic sword was forged by the gods Odin, Ra, and Rama through three mortal avatars. The sword was forged from the righteous energy within Jack's father; it is unable to harm beings that are pure of heart, as seen in Episode XXX where Aku steals the sword and attempts to kill Jack with it, but fails even to cut him. Jack strongly exhibits the characteristics of a stoic hero. He is unfailingly polite and humble despite the completely alien nature of the futuristic world and never scoffs at or disparages the customs of the people he encounters (as unpleasant as they seem to him at times). Despite his almost hopeless situation, he does not bewail his destiny, instead exhibiting a strong amor fati. Jack consistently shows an uncommon moral strength of character by helping the poor and defenseless along the way, in one instance even helping talking dogs that worked for Aku, in another, releasing the souls of a family in a haunted mansion. Occasionally, he faces great physical pain, or has to forget his own goals in order to help someone in need.
Aside from the proficiency in handling his katana, Jack can also fight with other weapons such as the Bo and Kyudo. He can also engage enemies in unarmed combat and he is also an expert strategist, as well as the ability to move fast and has lots of strength thanks to his training.
- Badass Normal: A samurai in a future dystopian world? Oh yeah!
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: He might be able to get home faster if he ignored the suffering of those around him. But he just can't do it since he's a hero.
- The Hero: Of his fate to save his world from Aku's tyranny.
- No Name Given: "Jack" is an alias he took in the future.
- Samurai: No need to say.
- The Comically Serious: Can't afford to be lax all the time as long as Aku (or some big bad) is out there.
- The Stoic: It's in his attitude as a samurai.
- Walk the Earth: His main quest to go home.
Rayman is typically found wearing white gloves,a red scarf on a purple shirt (which was replaced with a red and purple hoodie) with a white Ring on it, and yellow sneakers. The Ring appears to have magical properties. Whenever he earned a new power in Rayman, sparkles would appear around the Ring; in Rayman 2, it was used to open the stones holding the masks. One part of his character design is he has no neck, arms or legs, but rather his head, torso, hands and feet appear to float in midair relative each other as though they were attached. His hands and feet usually act like normal appendages (running, using objects, etc.), but some of his abilities involve separating them from his body.He has however been known to change outfits, beginning from his third adventure against the Black Lum André in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. In Japanese versions, Rayman's suit is changed from purple to blue, since purple is seen as the color of death in Japan
Rayman's abilities consist of attacking his enemies by winding up his fists and throwing them at his enemies, floating through the air and descending slowly by using his hair as a helicopter propeller, and the ability to live and survive without his body parts attached. In Rayman 2: The Great Escape, he was granted the ability to attack his enemies with energy balls, rather than throwing his fists. Late in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc, the Leptys granted Rayman the ability to turn Black Lums into Red Lums with a grimace. Also, there were combat fatigues in the game with could give Rayman Heavy Metal Fists that could increase his attack power, a propeller that could make him fly into the air, a missile attack that could make turn Rayman's fist into a powerful missile, a chain that could latch onto anything it could latch on to, and many more.
- Detachment Combat: Definitely, just definitely.
- Floating Limbs: Of course.
- Hand Blast: His ability to throw lums as energy attacks.
- Helicopter Hair
- Helping Hands: Well, uh, his hands?
- Natural Weapon: Pretty much every part of him counts, including his hair.
- Power Palms: His lum-throwing ability.
- Prehensile Hair: He can fly with his hair, c'mon who doesn't want to be able to do that?
- Rocket Punch: The way Rayman punches.
The most powerful of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist. Quite polite, but also more than a bit savage, and loves to fight. Wields Samehada, a sentient... thing whose resting state superficially resembles a sword, which it is wielded as by Kisame, and literally eats chakra. Kisame possesses absolutely enormous reserves of chakra, comparable to a Tailed Beast, and he is a considerable powerful Jonin, capable of easily trouncing most average Jonin and lower-tier Tailed-Beast Hosts, and could probably fight a Kage one-on-one and hold his own for a while before being overcome.
Kisame was one of the original members of Akatsuki; he joined when Madara Uchiha promised to help find a way to bring an end to the "world of lies" - the lies, betrayal, and backstabbing inherent in the shinobi world, which Kisame despised greatly. Kisame was partnered with Itachi Uchiha, and very quickly they became not only the most efficient team in the organization, but also the one where the members had the best relationship with each other; Kisame obeyed Itachi unquestioningly, respected the younger man greatly, and regularly looked out for Itachi's well-being. When Itachi died in battle against his younger brother, Kisame hid his sadness at his friend's passing by falling back to Madara's plan. He engaged the 8-Tails' Host in battle, and actually defeated him... until the Host's brother, the Fourth Raikage intervened. A quick Subtitution technique with a Zetsu-made clone fooled the two into thinking they'd killed Kisame, who stowed away inside Samehada. Later, Kisame was discovered and emerged, and fought and was defeated by Might Guy. In the end, Kisame commited suicide so as to prevent the "heroes" from extracting information on Madara from his mind, greatly impressing the Leaf shinobi with his dedication to duty and comrades.
Now, Kisame has been brought back by the Nomads, wielding a non-traitorous exact duplicate of Samehada and ready to rip his way through Challenges with his usual style.
- Affably Evil: Very polite and soft-spoken. He can rip your fucking face off, but there's no reason to be rude about it.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: Blows himself up with an explosive tag before Cho'Gath can finish eating him.
- BFS: If you can really count that thing as a sword...
- Blood Knight
- Eaten Alive: By Cho'Gath in the endgame.
- Empathic Weapon: Samehada
- Energy Absorption: Samehada can absorb/eat the chakra of anyone it touches, and of any technique that is launched through the air.
- Everything's Even Worse with Sharks: Subverted; Kisame's one of the most friendly, affable, emotionally sound guys you could ever meet. Granted, he's also a little bloodthirsty and loves fighting, but that comes with growing up in the "Bloody Mist".
- Genius Bruiser: Very quick to pick up on weaknesses, and has shown a decided knack for quick yet highly successful plans.
- Lightning Bruiser: Of the "hard-hitting big guy who moves much faster than his size suggests" variety.
- Making a Splash / Kill It with Water: The most powerful Water Relase specialist since the 2nd Hokage.
- Master Swordsman: And his swordsmanship skill isn't just limited to Samehada; he's rather handy with a katana if he has to be.
- Older Sidekick: To Itachi
- Only Sane Man: Amongst the Akatsuki. Between several Knights Templar; a bloodthirsty, sadistic Combat Sadomasochist; a miserly, psychotically violent fountain of Body Horror; an explosion-obsessed former mercenary; a man who loves turning corpses into puppets so much that he turned himself into one; and a cannibalistic Venus flytrap-man who is literally two people in one body, he generally comes off as this.
- One-Winged Angel: Can fuse with Samehada in times of dire need.
- Papa Wolf / Unstoppable Rage: Goes absolutely apeshit when Saren murders Blink
- Taking You with Me: See Better to Die than Be Killed.
A typical Shōnen protagonist at heart, Natsu has a burning passion for his job. He was raised by the dragon Igneel to be the Dragon Slayer of Fire, which grants him immunity to flames, ability to use flames, and the ability to eat flames to regain stamina. He was abandoned seven years ago, on the date of July 7th 777. Natsu quests in order to find Igneel once again and find out what happened.
He is the most prominent fire mage seen in the series. Natsu has shown to be one of the more substantially stronger members of Fairy Tail. Natsu is well adept with his Dragon Slayer magic and makes use of it in many different remarkable ways in combat. He incorporates the flames he ignites into his fighting style, greatly increasing the strength of his blows granted to him by the dragon, Igneel. As such, Natsu's magic revolves around the usage of fire that can spout from any part of his body, and gives him immunity to any type of flame and allows him to spew fire from his lungs. This fire is exceptionally strong - equivalent to a dragon's fire - being able to burn even through metal. He can even tame intensify flames that engulf his body to create a propulsive effect.
- Berserk Button: Badmouth Fairy Tail, and you get a fistful of fire in your face.
- Feed It with Fire: Literally.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: Totally this.
- Lightning Bruiser: Is very fast, can use fire to speed up.
- Really 700 Years Old: Maybe.
- Super Mode: Dragon Force. It's in your best interest to never get Natsu in this form...
Vezon was created when the Spear of Fusion divided a Dark Hunter called Vezok into two beings. He became an unofficial Piraka and Dark Hunter, and guardian of the Kanohi Ignika, fused to a Rahi named Fenrakk. He later became a member of an Order of Mata Nui strike team led by Brutaka, and was also used by the Order of Mata Nui on a mission to Destral during the Destiny War. He was later mutated by energized protodermis into a living dimensional doorway, constantly creating and falling into dimensional gates.
Before being exposed to energized protodermis, Vezon had no powers of his own. The Mask of Life fused itself to the back of Vezon's skull, lending him various powers. Like the other Piraka, Vezon had a vision power (the ability to see into the future limitedly) and a physical attribute power (the ability to absorb kinetic energy, making him stronger every time he gave or received a physical blow), but the former was controlled by the Ignika and the latter was automatic. He had no elemental power, unless Life could be counted, which was really the mask's power used through Vezon's body. Vezon was also permanently fused to Fenrakk by the Mask of Life; this was broken when the Ignika was removed from his head by Matoro. He was also completely invincible while touching the Mask of Life, unable to die or be hurt. Vezon also carried the Spear of Fusion, which could merge or split beings, though it could not separate him and Fenrakk because "the Ignika wouldn't like that". The Spear of Fusion was later vaporized by Jaller. However, he carried this self same spear when he was put in the games, so it can either be assumed that he found another one, or that this Vezon isn't from the central Bionicle 'verse.
He later stole an Olmak, Mask of Dimensional Gates, from Makuta Tridax. Despite his lack of mental discipline, his contact with the Ignika trained him to be able to use Great Masks. Later, when Vezon was exposed to energized protodermis, his body fused with the Olmak. This at last gave Vezon a power of his own: he became a walking dimensional doorway, constantly creating a portal to an alternate universe and being sucked into it. His entrance into the games was punctuated by an exit through one such portal.
- Blade on a Stick: His Spear of Fusion.
- Caped Mecha
- Mask of Power: The Mask of Life.
- Mechanical Lifeforms: He is one.
- Meaningful Name: Name means Double in the Matoran language.

The Black Stig took on the role of the Stig from 2002 to 2003 before he was killed off during a stunt involving a Nitrous-injected Jaguar XJS and HMS Invincible. He wore black coveralls, gloves and a racing helmet with its visor down. The Black Stig was introduced in the first episode of Top Gear's 2002 series by Jeremy Clarkson as the resident test driver as the presenters could not consistently post fast times themselves in driving the various cars. When asked about the Black Stig, Clarkson mentioned that "we don't know its name, we really don't know its name, nobody knows its name, and we don't wanna know, cause it's a racing driver." He then described The Black Stig as having a very small brain, who had worthless opinions, a disorder described by Clarkson as "Mansell Syndrome". He was portrayed by British race car driver Perry McCarthy.
The Black Stig can speak, but was not able to in the course of his stunt work with Top Gear. When he speaks, he places an accent to hide his identity that some people assumed that he was of French background for a short time whenever they heard his voice before it was eventually dropped. Regardless, the Black Stig worked hard to keep his identity a secret that he refuses to interact with others when it was possible that his face would be exposed to other people.
He is an expert in driving and handling all types of vehicles, though the Black Stig is proficient in driving any kind of racing cars since it's his forte. He was brought to the Common Room alongside the G4 Trainer and CWO3 Michael Durant to assist the Champions in vehicle driving tactics to get ready in handling vehicles that could appear in challenges.
The British driver/LMG handler died in the midst of being assisted by the Vortigaunts by a Militantiary sniper.
- Badass Driver: He is. Until his "retirement".
- Fake Nationality: In some way connected with Gratuitous French in order to throw off people from finding out who he was before Perry was revealed.
- Gratuitous French: Not much, except for the accent.
- No Name Given: Except for the guy who played him.
- Shrouded in Myth: The Black Stig's details. Little details were given out.
- Spell My Name with a "The": It's a given.
Galen Marek is a Human male taken as a secret apprentice by Darth Vader from his father, a Jedi named Kento Marek, on Kashyyyk during the Great Jedi Purge. For years, the Dark Lord trained him, under the codename Starkiller, in dark side arts and to eliminate his enemies, including Jedi who survived Order 66. Marek was told that he would ultimately assist in overthrowing Vader's own Master, Darth Sidious, Emperor of the Galactic Empire. In reality, Vader and Palpatine only planned to use him to root out those who rebelled against the Empire. In 3 BBY he had begun his missions to hunt down the last remaining Jedi. After killing Shaak Ti on Felucia, he returned to the Executor, his Master's flagship, on which Darth Sidious appeared and ordered Vader to kill the apprentice. In apparent submission, Vader telekinetically hurled him through the viewing windows, into open space. Vader secretly recovered his body and had him "resurrected" six months later on the science vessel Empirical, during which time he was known as Subject Zeta or Subject 1138. The Dark Lord convinced Starkiller that he had saved him from death against his Master's orders, and gave him a new assignment: to rally an alliance of rebels who would eventually destroy the Empire. It would later become Vader's undoing.
Galen Marek was trained in lightsaber combat by Darth Vader and sparred frequently with his master. He also had many vicious duels with his training droid, PROXY, and won every single time. An incredibly skilled lightsaber duelist, Marek was able to defeat the droid's training programs replicating some legendary duelists such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. Marek was also able to defeat Rahm Kota, Kazdan Paratus and Maris Brood and even managed to overwhelm Shaak Ti and his former Master Darth Vader, who were both two of the greatest duellists of their time. Marek had a basic familiarity with all seven forms of lightsaber combat, able to recognize them in his opponent's style and technique. For himself, he specialized in Juyo, Shien and Soresu. His usage of Juyo was highly focused and aggressive, his style being randomized and unpredictable, laced with sudden Force-based attacks in the midst of complex lightsaber sequences.
Galen Marek is exceptionally powerful in the Force. Darth Sidious believed that he had the potential to become as powerful as Sidious himself. Marek is highly skilled at using the Force in combat, often relying on Force-enhanced acrobatics to back up his lightsaber skills. His proficiency with telekinesis is incredible, as he frequently utilizes it in combat, tearing up the battlefield with kinetic blasts and Force-throws. He also has the ability to use Force Lightning.
