As a Blood Axe ork, Bigrench cares not from where his next payment of teef, weapons and mechanical parts comes from, and does the job the only way orks know how: with lots of noise and explosions. Bigrench lives only to create ever more destructive weapons and vehicles, and is at his happiest when his latest creation is devastating the battlefield, making more noise than an Ogryn celebration in the process. His greatest ambition is of creating the single most destructive contraption known to ork-kind, and takes on jobs wherever they may be in the hopes of amassing enough weapons for this purpose. He is fascinated by the concept of machine spirits (or AIs) and often wonders how he could make his creations work by themselves.
Bigrench is small for an ork leader at a mere eight feet tall, but is as 'ard as any boy. He wears a large groxleather apron festooned with metal plates and bits, heavy steel-capped boots and has a bionik eye after losing the other by checking if a shoota was loaded.
- Bald of Evil: He doesn't have natural hair.
- Improvised Weapon: He's a genius like all orks in improvising weapons.
Donatello (Don or Donnie) is a fictional character and one of the four main characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media. He sports a purple bandanna outside the Mirage/Image Comics and his signature weapon is the Bo Staff. In all media he is depicted as the most knowledgeable of the four turtles, often speaking in so called "technobabble" with a natural aptitude for science and technology. He is named after the Italian Renaissance painter and sculptor Donatello di Niccolò di Betto Bardi.
Donatello is typically the calm, logical Turtle. He is described as the "brain" of the TMNT, being fairly studious and industrious, and a reasonable "Mr. Fix-It". Donatello has a knack for inventing cool new gadgets and machines.
Donatello has attained a mastery Ninjutsu and stealth due to his ninjutsu training. The mutagen coupled with his training has given him near super human level skill, speed, agility and strength. He is also a stickjutsu and kobudo master. Donatello has also shown some impressive signs of physical strength; however, his greatest power is his genius-level intellect. He was stated to have an IQ of 637 in the 2k3 series, and has shown mastery in various fields of science.
- Beware the Nice Ones: In contrast to previous cartoons, where he never got angry, vexing this version of Don is liable to produce a sudden violent outburst.
- Big Little Brother: He's the tallest out of the four turtles.
- Blade on a Stick: This version of his bo staff has a retractable blade on the end, allowing it become a naginata.
- Deadpan Snarker: Usually to Raph or Mikey. This version of Donatello is notably less of a Gentleman Snarker than his previous incarnations, and more of a typical Deadpan Snarker.
Makuta Icarax; self proclaimed master of Shadows, arrogant warlord, feared warrior. Somehow has once again ended up a Nomad's toy. This is not the same Icarax involved with the challenges a year. However he is Icarax- the same arrogant conceited Makuta who fears little and cares about even less. Nabbed during his teleportation to Karda-nui and deposited into the hellish world of Comorragh, he meets his would be team members in less than ideal conditions.
- Berserk Button: Since no one has called him a coward yet, no one knows.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Ooh boy. Team members? Kill them for blocking his way! Does he care to find out why they want his help? Not particularly. Necrons, the most feared warriors in Warhammer? Charge! They can't be too tough.
- Mask of Power: He wears one, stolen from Teridax.
- Token Evil Teammate: Usurps the role from Seiga; while Seiga might be uncaring, Icarax willingly admits that he is 'evil' in their standards. Not that he particularly cares for it. He's been that way for centuries and does not plan on changing anytime soon.
A mechanic and former marine with his primary weapon as a retractable chainsaw equipped to his right arm. He's the star of MadWorld, the man with the chainsaw on his arm, the cigarette in his mouth, and the biggest swagger to hit Jefferson Island in years. Jack arrives on the scene in Varrigan City without a sponsor, a reputation, and with no obvious reason for being there, aside from the hundred-million-dollar prize thats up for grabs.
Jack has a great number of skills, that range from weapons that have a great resource to a impenetrable brute strength. He has a cyborg arm attached to his shoulder, with two chainsaw blades coming from the front. He is also very fast and can take down somebody from a great distance with projectile weapons.
- Anti-Hero: He might be one of the main protagonists, but that doesn't mean he has any problems with killing people.
- Artificial Limbs: His famous chainsaw-equipped right arm.
- Bounty Hunter: Technically a Chaser. A combination of a bounty hunter, private investigator, and assassin.
- Cyborg: Thanks to his right arm and cybernetic eyes.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Called "Deathwatcher Jack" because he personally attends each execution of all the criminals he catches.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Had small ones in MadWorld, but here it looks like they were ripped out.
- Smoking Is Cool: Subverted. His idle animation has him taking out a cigar and lighter, but he pauses just as he lights it before shaking his head and putting them away. He does it in memory of his daughter.
- Weapon of Choice: GATOR TOOTH: The only thing better than a chainsaw. Two Chainsaws.
His real name is Schuyler Tate, but prefers to be called Sky. A top officer cadet at the SPD main academy located in the recently made city of Newtech, Sky was one of the top cadets, in part because of his deceased father who was killed in the line of duty years ago. Because of this, Sky's pride tends to make him a bit stubborn when he was selected to be the Blue Ranger and not the Red Ranger since it was his aspired position once he is fully commissioned as an official SPD police officer. But thanks to the disappearance of the SPD's A-Squad while trying to repel a Troobian invasion force, Commander Doggie Cruger had no choice but to fully recognize B-Squad as an official SPD unit. During his work with Jack and Z, the two drifters who agreed to be recruited to the SPD, Sky began to work with them without any animosity since he understood that he doesn't need to be the top cadet to do good work like his late father.
Thanks to an experiment where his parents were involved, Sky has the ability to use force fields to protect himself from all sides. In addition, Sky is trained to handle all known SPD-issued weapons and equipment, including the use of the Delta Morpher and the Delta Runner 2 and SWAT Flyer 2 vehicles.
- Barrier Warrior: Used his force field powers to save Urza from being accidentally punched by Sam.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: His two weapons. Primarily the Deltamax Striker and the Delta Enforcer assault rifle of his personal SWAT mode gear.
- Meaningful Name: Compare the nickname with the ranger color uniform he's got.
- Military Brat: His father did serve previously in the SPD before being killed on duty.
One of the oldest and most powerful planeswalkers in the multiverse, the artificer Urza was first seen as a mortal in the Antiquities expansion, where he fought a bitter war against his fellow artificer and brother, Mishra. The disastrous war eventually led to the destruction of most of the continent, Mishra's death, Urza's ascension (after detonating the Golgothian Sylex, annihilating most of a continent and starting a millennia-long ice age), and the release of the lock that was keeping Phyrexia sealed away from Dominaria.
Urza, recognizing the threat of Phyrexia and blaming them for the corruption and death of his brother, began a crusade to purge them from the multiverse. His campaign spanned millennia, eventually culminating in the Weatherlight saga and the Dominarian Apocalypse.
- Anti-Hero: He causes multiple cataclysmic magical disasters that completely destroy major landmasses, creates a eugenics program to breed super-soldiers, and is an overall Manipulative Bastard who gets regular What the Hell, Hero? moments. If Yawgmoth hadn't been set as the villain from the beginning, he could be the Villain Protagonist.
- Badass Boast: Gives one to the Dark Eldar emissary in Commoragh, and was one of the few moments where he's showed excessive emotion since the Seekers met him.
- Big Good: In the sense of leading the good guys, at least. Urza was not a nice man.
- Cain and Abel: The conflict with his brother Mishra got a little out of control. To the point of escalating into a world-shattering conflict called the Brothers War. When people remember and curse both their names four or five thousand years later, you know things went too far.
- Dimensional Traveler: Planeswalkers can 'walk between planes fairly easily, at least before the Mending. Urza can't do that just now, though, and suspects the Seekers' host is responsible.
- FaceHeel Turn: He betrays his fellow planeswalkers and gives in to Yawgmoth once he has reached Phyrexia.
- Forgets to Eat: Well, technically he doesn't need to eat, given how planeswalkers work. But it's indicative of how he ignores other mortal habits and is all the more inhuman for it.
- He Who Fights Monsters: "As the invasion drew closer, Urza's means began to resemble Phyrexia's end."
- His Story Repeats Itself: His life has been a vicious cycle of 'make mistake, try and fix it, in the process make another, worse mistake, wash, rinse, repeat.'
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Gerrard, the warrior he has bred to fight Yawgmoth, beheads him in the Phyrexian Arena.
- Intelligence = Isolation: Played with a little bit. Urza was the most brilliant artificer of his age and most of those following, and had next to no social skills and no real friends. The playing comes in in that he eventually realizes this and goes to some effort to keep at least one friend around to act as the voice of sanity and reason.
- Jerkass Has a Point: While what he did to save Dominaria was awful and millions died anyway, he did save it... more or less. In the challenges, he tends to be the one to either point out or try and take the most direct way of winning, since they are trying to avert multiversal Armageddon and it's hard to argue with the point that the multiverse being alive to condemn him is better than the alternative.
- Losing Your Head: His planeswalker powers mean that he can be beheaded and survive. His disembodied head can later be spotted relaxing in a hot tub in the non-canonical Unhinged expansion.
- Luke Nounverber: He's occasionally referred to as "Urza Planeswalker." This crosses over with Species Surname when you take into consideration that before the Mending, "Planeswalker" was less of a job description and more of an actual race.
- Not Distracted by the Sexy: As a young mortal man, Urza was working in a little artificer's shop when the most beautiful woman in the world, the princess of the realm he was in, walked in, and, wanting to have a little fun, tried flirting with him. He never even glanced up from fixing the music box she wanted repaired. This attitude has never changed ever since. Urza's first and only love has always been his artifacts.
- Not That Kind of Mage: When one of the Seekers is badly injured in Commoragh, he reluctantly admits to the group that while he had access to powerful healing magic, he isn't skilled with it and might just pop the guy's head off if he stuffs too much healing energy into him. Of course, he has to try anyway.
- Older Than They Look: About four thousand years old and counting, but doesn't look a day past sixty or seventy, most of the time.
- Reformed, but Rejected: Subverted in the case of his oldest friends, who have only seen him working to save his home. But though he has tried to be better sometimes, the vast majority of his home plane remembers him and his brother as the legendary monsters who destroyed the world.
- Replacement Goldfish: Seems to be looking among the Seekers of Team Science for the one person that he can consider a friend. Hasn't found one yet.
- Swiss Army Weapon: Any weapon that he builds. He usually keeps things down to a single main function, but as long as there's space to add other things, why not use it? His staff is probably the best example at this point, it's been shown to do several different things.
- Tranquil Fury: When confronted by Dark Eldar bio-mechanical constructs, he decides that they are this universe's incarnation of Phyrexia and goes into this state distressingly quickly.
- We Can Rule Together: When Yawgmoth asks him what is his greatest desire, Urza answers that he wants to sit next to him and benefit from his knowledge and power.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He may be a dick to everyone, including his allies, but at least his efforts go towards stopping Yawgmoth. That is, until he reaches Phyrexia.
- You Are What You Hate: He explicitly compares destroying Phyrexia to burning a library and repeatedly admires their feats of engineering. If it weren't for the whole fusing-of-flesh-and-metal thing, called 'compleation' in-universe, and their causing of his falling out with his brother, he would probably have joined them from the beginning.
Gavrill is Fran Madaraki's older sister. Gavrill is what Fran calls a "Transformer"; her entire skeletal, muscular, organ, and nervous system have been partitioned into many smaller divisions so that she can consciously control them, which grants her the ability to shape her body into whatever suits her needs. Her primary combat form is a humanoid wolf (giving her the nickname Gavrill the Wolf). However, Fran says that transformations require great amount of willpower. As a result, the Professor has abandoned the practice due to the danger that comes with it, that is if the subject's will is not strong enough.
Gavrill is known for her sadistic ways, showing barely more care for her own allies and servants than her foes. Brutal, cruel and hateful, Gavrill is a creature of spite and malice. The only things she seems to enjoy are fighting, killing, eating, and doing all she can to ensure the lives of those around her are as miserable as possible. On a more personal level she is vulgar, obnoxious, rude and foulmouthed, according little semblance of friendship, kindness or respect to anyone around her.
- Cute Monster Girl : Mostly a matter of opinion, but when she isn't looking scary or creepy, she can actually look pretty cute.
Kara is an optimistic, friendly, loyal, and playful, if a bit insecure teenager. While Kara is far from being as morally right as Mary Marvel or both of her cousins. She strives to be as great as superman, her cousin, one day, and become not just a hero but a symbol of hope.
- Beware the Nice Ones : As friendly as she might be, you don't want to anger her.
- One-Woman Army: Due to her heritage as a superhero this is a given.
- Worf Had the Flu: The main reason she isn't able to fly on the spirit world.
Dalek Sec was the leader of the cult and of the Dalek attack during the Battle of Canary Wharf against the Cybermen. He showed his leadership by communicating to the enemy, namely, Rose Tyler, Cybermen and The Doctor, and commanding the other three Daleks.
He had served in the Dalek forces in fighting against the Mechanoids before the Dalek Sec later fought in the Last Great Time War. Prior to that, he met with the Dalek Emperor and was placed in charge of the cult. Later on, he and the rest of the Cult of Skaro were displaced in 1930s New York when they initiated a temporal shift after an encounter with the 10th Doctor. During this time, the Dalek Sec began experiments while using humans in order to revive the entire Dalek race before he began an experiment himself to blend Daleks with humans.
Now a Dalek-Human hybrid, he retains his intellect, but has lost his tank-like casing. On the plus side, he is much more agile, has emotions now, and is a smaller target.
This is not his first time fighting alongside people from across the multiverse, as he had been in Twilight Of The Gods prior. He escaped of his own accord.
- Beam Spam: Sec firing all of his weapons at the upgraded Goliath Doll. On auto fire. That's 5 attached to his armor, and two being Dual Wielded. It fails to take down the doll.
- Butt-Monkey: Highest amount of deaths of all the people looking for Sifuri. Targeted by the other team. Gone on a Gender Bender. Has been a Dalek most of his life. Seriously, the first time he has fun ever in his lifetime is levitating objects while transformed into a Unicorn Pony.
- Four-Star Badass: He equates his former rank, a Supreme Dalek, to that of a general.
- Meaningful Rename: Has dubbed himself "Sec Diagoras", showing that he's human and Dalek.
- Mr. Exposition: He is usually the one that explains things to newcomers.
- My Species Doth Protest Too Much: One of the very few (three since 2005) good Daleks.
- Phlebotinum Rebel: Sec had the ability to think outside the box as a Dalek. Said thinking outside the box lead him to become half human and throw off the genetic brainwashing employed to make Daleks omnicidal. Go figure.
- Shout-Out: Likes to use the expression "Son of a Thal". Seeing as that in itself is a Shout-Out to Second Empire, this is a Shout-Out within a Shout-Out.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Sec sees children not deserving of death, not even if they come back to life. This isn't working well for him, as Team Magic's strongest members fall under his definition of children.
Eiji Takaoka is the descendant of the Takaoka Clan, a clan of demon hunters responsible for sealing away the Ashu Tribe. However, Eiji himself is half-Ashu due to the forbidden love between his human father and Ashu mother. He fought as Bouken Silver with the Go Go Sentai Boukenger, but just before the final battle against Gajah, he was pulled into a new Sentai. Eiji is very resourceful, and takes his summoning into stride. Despite his loner proclivities and with his arrogant attitude sometimes, he is eager to help out the team from time to time after defeating Gajah for good. Eiji acts most of the time in a monk-like manner.
Eiji has access to the Sagasniper, which is Bouken Silver's main weapon. It consists of three modes including Sagasniper for ranged combat, Sagaspear for melée combat, and the metal detector-like Sagasu Mode. He also has access to the GoGo Fire, GoGo Aider and the GoGo Police.
- The Heart: Manages to somewhat diffuse tensions between the team, plus has consistently been the one with the solution to the majority of the party's problems
Flere-Imsaho is a 2.0 Value Special Circumstances drone. Originally, it was the game-player Gurgeh's minder when he went to the Empire of Azad; it was deeply involved in the scheme to bring him to play that game in the first place. After the collapse of the Empire, it returned to the Culture with Gurgeh; it returned to its home G S V, and was picked up to be a part of the team shortly afterwards.
- Nanomachines: It can use some. Also, some of its missiles are 'nanomissiles' for a reason: they are about a millimetre long.
- Overly Long Name: Sprant Flere-Imsaho Wu-Handrahen Xato Trabiti. Most of it is just nomenclature, and it goes by Flere-Imsaho most of the time.
- Put on a Bus: It was Displaced away by its parent G S V in the middle of the Neon Tiger mission.
- Sliding Scale of Robot Intelligence: Level four; being a 2.0 Value drone means that it is about as twice as intelligent as the normal human.
A former agent of the defunct bounty hunting organisation Red Alert, Axl was initially a loyal member, being brought up by its' leader, Red, who treated him like a son. However, he eventually changed allegiance to the Maverick Hunters after Red Alert began to go after innocents, and helped to bring down Sigma alongside X and Zero, his heroes. He doesn't know much about his past, aside from the fact that he is a prototype New Generation Reploid, whom can use Copy Chips to copy abilities. Since the defeat of Red Alert and Sigma, he has worked with X and Zero on many a mission. For now he's trying to figure out who he is.
Axl is headstrong, happy go lucky, and a bit of an adrenaline junky. He is, however, still a hero, fighting for justice.
Axl is the prototype of the next generation of reploid evolution. He has a special ability called Copy Shot, which allows him to disguise himself as certain non-boss enemies; in the games that it's featured in (particularly in Mega Man X8), these transformations can be used to solve puzzles. Following the trend started by his partners X and Zero, Axl can upgrade his armor to improve his abilities. In Command Mission, his Hyper Mode allows him to turn invisible and become invulnerable while it lasts. Like most Hyper Modes, however, this is only temporary.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Oddly for a robot, he has an X scar across his face which may or may not be self inflicted.
Petty Officer Second Class Samuel-034 was a SPARTAN-II super soldier of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Group Section III. Sam was abducted by the UNSC in 2517 at around the age of six. He was then replaced with a Flash Clone and sent to Reach to train with the other Spartans under the watchful eyes of Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez and Déjà, the Spartans' "teacher".
Samuel was considered to be the strongest of the first class of Spartan II's. According to John-117, he had the best eyes and ears of all of his subordinates. Sam did not display the same great leadership qualities as John or Frederic did, but he did act as John's second in command throughout the duration of his Naval career. At times Sam also displayed some ruthlessness, such as detonating a C-12 shaped charge on a Rebel base, despite the obvious civilian casualties that would be involved. Also, he appeared more sociable and had a bigger sense of humor than the other Spartans.
- The Big Guy: Huge, even for a Spartan-II.
- Child Soldiers: He was abducted at ages 6 or 7, and was given his augmentations at age 14.
- Cyborg: Standard-issue Spartan-II enhancements: carbide-ceramic ossification (metal and ceramics on bones), catalytic thyroid implant (containing human growth hormones), muscular enhancement injections, occipital capillary reversal (souped-up eyes), and superconducting fibrification of neural dendrites (Spartans literally think faster). And, finally, the Powered Armor that "connects" directly to the central nervous system via Neural Implanting.
- First-Name Basis: Among themselves, since none of them can remember their last names. Samuel is not an exception to this.
- Neural Implanting: The specialized Spartan Neural Interface.
- Sacrificial Lion: The first Spartan to die in combat.
The rival and "best friend" of Lelouch. Instead of following Lelouch's ideals to crush Britannia to save Japan, Suzaku opted to "change Britannia from the inside, to help Japan," and he is willing to crush Japanese freedom fighters and terrorists in order to achieve this (even those that share his ultimate goals, such as the Kyoto Group). He got chosen to pilot the Humongous Mecha Lancelot, which enables him to do lots of otherwise-impossible physical feats.
Later, he finds love in Princess Euphemia li Britannia, and got picked as her Knight. But after a certain incident that made him lose her very cruelly and messily, he blamed Zero for it and became more "honest", showing more brutality and less restraint. Even after the revelation that Zero is Lelouch, Suzaku did not falter and turned against his best friend
- Cursed With Awesome: Lelouch's Live Command forces Suzaku to stay alive at all costs, often pushing his abilities firmly into the superhuman range
- Mini-Mecha: The Lancelot is only 4.5 meters tall
An elite scout robot, Quote was sent to the Floating Island with his companion Curly Brace to defeat the wielder of the Demon Crown and to destroy said artifact. The resulting battle resulted in the death of the Crown's wielder, but also left Quote and Curly heavily damaged. He awoke ten years later with amnesia, when the Crown had a new wielder, known as The Doctor. With the help of Curly and the island's inhabitants, Quote defeated the Doctor, and destroyed the dark wizard Ballos, the source of the Demon Crown's power.
Quote is generally silent, but he is surprisingly deep in his thoughts. His skill in combat is unmatched, able to use almost any ranged weapon with little to no practice. He is noted for the ability to carry ridiculous amounts of equipment, and his ability to jump three times his own (admittedly dimuniative) height.
- Cool Sword: King's Sword, which may or may not be haunted.
- Hyperspace Arsenal: Really, no one knows how the four foot robot manages to carry so much stuff.
- Jet Pack: The Booster 2.0, which allows 10 seconds of flight in any direction.
- Meaningful Name: Quote is a computer programming term for ".
A "radical" scientist, child prodigy and former college professor of comparative physics from an alternate Earth where a grand unified theory has been established. Yumemi's promising career came to a screeching halt when she published her infamous thesis, "The Non-Unified Magic World", which posited that the theory was incomplete due to overlooking the existence of magic. Laughed out of the scientific community, she swore she'd prove them all wrong and, using a stolen Probability Space Hypervessel, somehow made her way to the land of Gensokyo in order to find irrefutable proof that she was right all along. After some... Resistance from the locals, she eventually left with what she thought was enough data to back up her claims... Only to find herself once more a laughing stock and, even worse, seen as a criminal for not only stealing the PSHV, but for losing a valuable robot maid and having an ICBM stolen by who-knows-what.
Luckily for her, she was called away to the challenge during her trail, appearing with the Science Team soon after the end of the first challenge.
- Badass Teacher: College professor, scientist, and Final Boss.
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Her dream is to bring to all worlds the wonders of "magic, technology, strawberries, iron-fisted domination and enlightenment".
- Drowning My Sorrows: Binges on quite a few strawberry daiquiris.
- Heel Realization: After witnessing what the Chairman in the Neon Tiger challenge did, she started to worry about whether she was going too far with her research, in fear of becoming just like him.
- Hot Teacher: At least, according to Kaoru.
- Improbable Age: A (former) college professor at the age of 18.
- Large Ham: She has her moments, most notably when she activated Ruukoto for the first time and quoted Henry Frankenstein's most famous line in all its overdramatic glory.
- Mad Scientist: She's one of the (if not the) most brilliant scientists from a universe whose technological prowess outstrips even Dalek technology, and clearly has at least a few screws loose.
- They Called Me Mad!: Her sole motivation is to prove to her scientific peers that she was right all along.
