    Ladybug 

Ladybug

Voiced By: Nick Kroll
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ladybug.jpg
"Oh shit! What these motherfuckers gonna do?!

A talking ladybug that occasionally provides running commentary.


  • Ambiguous Gender: Three seasons in and it's still not clear if the ladybug is meant to be male or female.
  • Hidden Depths: Has a dead partner and raising two stepchildren.
  • Long-Lived: Lampshaded. The ladybug has appeared in every season so far, which have spanned almost a year, well beyond a beetle's natural lifespan.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Pretty much every line the ladybug says has "fuck" in it.

    Cantor Dina Resnick 

Cantor Dina Reznick

Voiced By: Michaela Watkins
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2019_01_21_cantor_dina_google_search.png

Shannon's ex-lover.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's fairly personable and nice, but acts selfishly. She entered a relationship with a married woman, showed zero guilt over it and then acted like she could be friends with Jessi despite everything. To top it off, she implies she's broken up families before, making her a serial homewrecker. She then dumps Shannon when she decides that she wants to be single again when she goes to an Ani DiFranco concert.
  • Informed Judaism: Despite being a cantor in a synagogue, some of her remarks imply she is into New Age stuff. Plus, committing adultery with a married member of the synagogue is a pretty good indicator that she is not especially concerned with Jewish doctrine.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: She's very attractive with a bangin' body.

    Dr. Wendy Ingle 

Dr. Wendy Ingle

Voiced By:

The medical doctor, who complains about his marital problems to his patients.


  • Awful Wedded Life: Dr. Ingle seems to have many heated arguments with his unseen wife, so much so that they need couples therapy.
  • Back-Alley Doctor: Dr. Ingle is very sarcastic and rude to his patients, many of which are children, yelling in their faces and insulting them whenever they make the slightest mistake. He also complains about his wife and lets his personal life crossover with his career, which is indecent for a person of any profession.
  • Gender-Blender Name: His first name is "Wendy".
  • Self-Demonstrating Article: Invoked a clever version of this trope in "The ASSes", when he mocked his wife, complaining about how he mocks her.
    Dr. Ingle: Therapy is when my wife wants me to waste one of my four days off because I "always mock everything she says".

    Detectives Florez & Dumont 

Detectives Florez & Dumont

Voiced By: John Mulaney and Neil Casey
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2019_01_21_ponytail_killer_google_search.png

Two detectives who regularly cross paths with the kids and Coach Steve.


  • Expy: Florez is one of Hal Linden's most famous role, detective Barney Miller.
  • Innocently Insensitive: When Jessie ran away from home, both detectives showed an astounding lack of tact when they told her parents there's a good chance that she may show up on a porn site or worse.
  • Skewed Priorities: While on the case of the Ponytail Killer, they spend more time trying to come up with a catchy name than actually doing their job.
  • Those Two Guys: Never seen apart. Except in "Nick Starr", where only Florez is seen.

    The Ponytail Killer 

The Ponytail Killer

Voiced By: ???

A serial killer who targets women and men with long hair.


  • Monster Misogyny: Mostly kills women and chops off their hair. Subverted in that at least one of his victims was a man.
  • Outside-Context Villain: Despite being a legitimate threat, he has yet to make any real impact on the plot. Subverted in Season 4 where his previous killing of three sorority girls from Kappa Kappa Kill becomes the backdrop for the haunted house in "Horrority House".
  • Serial Killer: He kills people. Duh.
  • Serial Killings, Specific Target: For some messed-up reason, he only kills people with ponytails.
  • The Unseen: He has yet to show his face.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He murders women as well as men.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He was about to kill Jessi, and possibly Jay, when the former was wearing a ponytail.

    Aiden 

Aiden

Voiced By: Zachary Quinto

Matthew's new boyfriend.


  • Malicious Slander: Whether he was the originator or just one link in a chain of Gossip Evolution, Aiden informs Matthew that Ali, who used to attend the same Catholic School as Aiden, got expelled for making out with a nun.
  • Satellite Love Interest: Not much is known about Aiden other than "Matthew's boyfriend".
  • Straight Gay: In contrast to Matthew, Aiden's more muted in his sexuality while still being clearly out of the closet.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: With a stylish spit curl.

    Vicki 

Vicki

Voiced By: Jenny Slate

Cherry's trashy, somewhat off-kilter best friend.


  • Ax-Crazy: Possibly, given that she was very enthusiastic to sink a boat, carries a pocket knife, showed Nick one of her stepfather's corpses and Nick couldn't even tell if she wanted to kill him or not.
  • Girlish Pigtails: AVERTED. Despite her hairstyle she's probably the most masculine female character shown yet.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Somewhat. She's off her rocker and has a penchant for blowing things up, but casually hangs out with Nick and treats him decently despite her odd way of flirting with him.
  • The Lad-ette: By far the most masculine female character thus far given her trashy mannerisms, lack of shame and fondness for vandalism.
  • Pyromaniac: She really wanted to sink a boat and carries a pipe bomb that she had been saving for Easter, but ultimately uses it to sink the boat with Nick.

    Nick Starr 

Nick Starr

Voiced By: Nick Kroll

Nick Birch from a possible future. Rich and famous, but also a sociopathic douche.


  • Celebrity Endorsement: Has a lot of endorsement deals with various products, which he markets both to the characters and to the audience.
  • Hates Being Touched: Will turn down hugs and physical affection in exchange for fist bumps.
  • I Hate Past Me: Starr has no reservation about taking his past self's body so he can relive his youth, even though it's implied he'll make even more mistakes than his 13-year-old counterpart would have.
  • It's All About Me: Every action he takes is for his own satisfaction. When the world comes to an end he takes only Jessi with him onto the space station for Earth's wealthiest survivors, not because he cared about her but because he wanted to screw her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He is Nick's selfish tendencies amped up to the 10th power.
  • Pet the Dog: It's a very small moment, and the only one he has, but he is genuinely upset to hear about future Missy's death.
  • Sadistic Game Show: Is the host of one; "Countdown to Money with Nick Starr".
  • Shadow Archetype: He possesses all of Nick's flaws turned up to their highest setting.
  • Upper-Class Twit: His success and privilege means he can afford to ignore the collapse of civilisation and the impending destruction of Earth until the last minute.

    Michael Angelo 

Michael Angelo

An attractive artist and Jessi's new boyfriend in New York.


  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Jessi first fell in love with him, while he was skipping school.
  • Beauty Is Bad: He's hot as fuck but he's also an abusive asshole.
  • Brainless Beauty: As hot as he is, he still lacks quite a bit of knowledge in world history and politics, believing that the artist Michelangelo painted the Mona Lisa and also making a satirical piece of street art, which included messages promoting both voting and anarchy.
  • Charm Person: Was able to use his charm to keep Jessi coming back to him, even after he abused her. Even after he dumped her, Jessi still felt heartbroken about losing her toxic, abusive boyfriend.
  • Evil Brit: He has a British accent and ends up being a toxic and emotionally abusive boyfriend to Jessi.
  • Full-Name Basis: Because he shares a name with the celebrated artist, he is always called by his first and last names.
  • Gag Penis: Has a hilarious talking penis with a Long Island accent.
  • Idiot Ball: He doesn't seem to know much about the very person that he, himself, was named after, believing that Michelangelo was the artist who painted the Mona Lisa.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Coerces Jessi that she needs to give him a handjob with the lie that he'll suffer from blue balls otherwise.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is Michael Angelo and he's a street artist.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Michael Angelo is probably one of the most conventionally attractive characters in the entire show. Jessi, Connie, Maury, and Andrew are all over him.
  • Shirtless Scene: Posts a lot of shirtless pics on Instagram.
    Nick: Ugh, jeez. Why does he post all these gross shirtless pics?
  • Smoking Is Cool: Micheal Angelo vapes, which makes him even more badass and attractive to Jessi.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Some fans spell his name the same way as the artist (Michelangelo), but his Instagram handle confirms that Michael is his first name and Angelo is his surname.
  • Twofer Token Minority: An African-American man with an English accent.
    • Technically a triple threat, since his penis has a Long Island accent.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Dumped Jessi during his third episode appearance but given how hung up Jessi is over losing him, it's likely he'll be making at least a one-episode return next season.
