Needs Wiki Magic Love

    Mark Iplier 
The player's partner in crime, in search of a mysterious box.
Played by: Mark Fischbach

The name's Illinois. Pleasure to meet me. And I know what you're thinking; Yes, I am single.
A daring, confident adventurer.
Played by: Mark Fischbach

  • Affectionate Parody: Of Indiana Jones.
  • Chick Magnet: Remarks offhand that the player will likely fall in love with him (regardless of their sexual orientation) before the adventure's over, because "they always do".
  • Nonchalant Dodge: He barely acknowledges the death traps in the cave while walking through it, remarking that from his experience, they're only a threat if you panic.
  • Seen It All: His reaction to discovering Monkey Heaven is pretty chill. He's already visited Lion Heaven, Dog Heaven, and Bee Heaven, after all.
  • Wink "Ding!": Whenever he winks, there's the sound of a bullwhip.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: If you go with him to Monkey Heaven, they offer you a banana and him a rock. He nonchalantly hands you the rock and walks off, just before you sneeze the dust away, revealing the rock to be a diamond, with the supposed banana also full of gold.

So, tell me; do you still wanna be free?
The "leader" of the prisoners at the Happy Trails penitentiary.
Played by: Mark Fischbach

  • Brooklyn Rage: Sports one of these accents. Subverted, since he's actually from Ohio.
  • Dance Battler: Will originally have a fist fight at you, but deny his offer to help afterward, and he'll do one of these with you, taking you out in the process.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: If you beat him in a fistfight, he'll change his mind and offer to help you escape.
  • Mythology Gag: He has "DARK MARK" tattooed across his fists, which should be a familiar phrase for a Date with Markiplier viewers.
  • Not Used to Freedom: Why Yancy doesn't want to leave prison.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: His Brooklyn accent is mostly absent during the "I Don't Want to Be Free" musical number.
  • Self-Made Orphan: His theatrics while in prison indicate, at various points, remembering killing his mother as one of the bright points of remaining in prison and yelling at his now-departed father over what may have been a dispute over what accent is expected from a citizen of Ohio.
  • Self-Restraint: Yancy knows how to escape from the prison, he just doesn't want to.
  • Tattooed Crook: Yancy is covered in tattoos, including the series timeline on his arm.

     Captain Magnum
Mayhaps the truest treasured gold is about the friendships you make along the way.
A pirate captain on a search for treasure.
Played by: Mark Fischbach

     The Hermit
I'm so sorry about the state of my cave. I didn't realize that I would be having some guests... for dinner.
An eccentric man with a penchant for meat who lives in a cave on a deserted island.
Played by: Matthew Patrick

     The Scientist
Exactly. Exactly. None of this makes sense.
Dr. Beauregard, a scientist studying the Zombie Apocalypse and its potential cause.
Played by: Rosanna Pansino


     The 2-headed alien
You will always be remembered, Um Wait, just not by you!
An alien with two heads, briefly encountered in Ending 23.

     The Soldier
Good old trusted Ed. Left alive to clean up the mess.
Ed, a soldier stationed at Fort Brannagan, the last stronghold against the Zombie Apocalypse.
Played by: Chance Morris

  • Artistic License – Gun Safety: He waves his gun around a lot. He's pretty unhinged, so this is probably an intentional use of the trope.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: If you expose him as a Zombie Infectee, he'll blow himself up rather than let himself turn.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Kills the player if they fess up about their zombie bite.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: He's crushed that his best friend lied about being a Zombie Infectee and got everyone else killed.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: "I'm not very good with numbers. For all I know, there could be about maybe—"
  • Overly Narrow Superlative: Claims that Fort Brannagan is "the friendliest military installation this side of the diner!"
  • Properly Paranoid: After what happened to the camp, his request that new arrivals strip naked to prove they haven't been bitten is entirely reasonable. Especially since the player was, in fact, bitten.
    "I guess you could call me 'cautious Ed' now!"
  • Sanity Slippage: Watching everyone at Fort Brannagan die hasn't done much for his mental health.
  • Sole Survivor: His best friend turned into a zombie in the middle of the night and wiped out his camp, leaving him as the last person alive.
  • Stripped to the Bone: After blowing up Fort Brannagan, all that's left of him is a skeleton and his T-shirt.
  • Zombie Infectee: He has a bite on his left leg.

     The Warden
