The various characters of Bravest Warriors.
Warning: Spoilers for "Aeon Worm" will be unmarked in the "Paralysed Horse" and "Ralph Waldo Pickle Chips" folders.
The Bravest Warriors
- Animal Motifs: Each of them has this in their weapons, due to said weapons being made out of the animals in the stickers on their chest.
- Badass Crew
- Badass Normal: Barring Chris, who relies more on weapons and skills than his untapped emotion lord powers anyways
- Calling Your Attacks: All members yell the name of the attack/technique they are using.
- Color-Coded Characters: Chris' is Blue, Danny's is Red, Beth's is Green and Wallow's is orange.
- Generation Xerox: The Bravest Warriors, with the exception of Beth, look almost exactly like their parents, and both teams battled the Aeon Worm.
- Genius Bruiser: All of them barring Chris, having expertise in mechanics (Danny), science (Beth) and medicine (Wallow).
- Legacy Character: All of them to their parents, the Courageous Battlers

The main protagonist of the series, Chris Kirkman is The Bravest Warriors' good-natured and courageous, if sometimes just a bit too emotional, leader. The kindest of the four members, he has a crush on his best friend Beth, although he Cannot Spit It Out no matter how hard he tries. His sticker pet is a bumblebee. In "Lavarinth", it's revealed that Chris will eventually grow up to be The Emotion Lord, an Emotion Lord with exceptional, if somewhat confusing powers. "Ultra Wankershim" indicates that he may not always be with Beth in the future. His powers continue to develop throughout the season, being partially awakened in "Cereal Master".
His character is expanded upon greatly throughout Season 2: He is destined to share a life-changing kiss with Beth in "Merewif Tag", signalling the start of their relationship. However, this is ruined when he spends time with Plum and eventually kisses her instead, missing his date with Beth and the beginning of their relationship. These events are what gradually turns Chris into the Emotion Lord. In "The Parasox Pub", Chris meets a group of his future selves, and due to his inability to kill an innocent emotion lord named Puddingtown, he cuts off the last available path for his future, meaning he is trapped into the one where Danny marries Beth and Chris ends up alone and insane. However, at the end of the episode, Chris opens up a whole new path through the timeline, possibly giving him, and by extension, The Emotion Lord, a second chance with Beth.
- Ancestral Weapon: Implied. Chris' gloves look identical to those worn by his father, and when Gayle contacts the Bravest Warriors in the concept art, she expects their parents.
- Anime Hair: Granted, it's not as extreme as other cases, but it's still noticeable.
- Bee Bee Gun: While its combat applications seem limited compared to the others' animals, it's not useless.Chris: Bumblebee storm TO THE EYEBALLS!
- Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Danny's Veronica and Beth's Archie.
- Cannot Spit It Out: With Beth.
- Chekhov M.I.A.: During "Season of the Worm" and "Season of the Mitch". The end result is implied to have forced Beth to step up as leader. This is confirmed in season 3. He's back as of "Himmel Mancheese"

- Despair Event Horizon: In comic issue #20 he resigns himself to being the Aeon Worm's replacement for the Huxtabites, "techno-organic drones" who worship the Aeon Worm as king and who rely on the Aeon Worm to absorb their emotions. Beth promptly punches him and takes him home.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Defeats an army of his future selves with powers he still doesn't fully understand.
- Emotion Suppression: Attempted to do this in order to change his destiny, but it doesn't work out.Chris: [startled] I FEEL NOTHING!
- The Empath: According to Danny, Chris can feel people's feelings. Puts him in terrible pain during the Huxtabite arc, when he is overwhelmed by all of the Huxtabites' emotions along with Theo's cries for help.
- Future Me Scares Me: While Chris isn't "scared" of the Emotion Lord, per-se, it takes until the end of "Lavarinth" for him to accept that the he and the Emotion Lord are one and the same. It becomes this trope in full in "Parasox Pub."

- My God, What Have I Done?: In the comics after Trashing the dating pool with his emotion lord powers due to seeing Beth flirt with another guy, then thrashing the guy with Danny's beard. Not to mention letting the villain of the week get away.

- Oblivious to Love: Ironically; in "Merewif Tag", when he and Plum switch bodies, he gets a lot of attention from a bunch of male merewifs and tries to give one of them Plum's phone number. When Plum tells him not to give her number away, Chris ensures her that they want to hang out as friends.

- He uses his powers again in "Ultra Wankershim" to see a vision of the future.
- In the comics story "The Dating Pool" (Originally meant to be Episode 3 of Season 2) he learns he can read minds, soon finding out that one of the people there is planning a robbery. He also trashes the place when he sees Beth flirting with someone else.
- The Team Normal: Alone out of the team, he doesn't really seem to have any shown proficiency in science. However, he is an Emotion Lord, so he's way more powerful than the rest of his team.

The last one couldn't have happened at a worse time and it takes Beth coming under threat of becoming the Aeon Worm's bride to snap him out of it.
- While Season 3 is kinder to him at first, he gets hit with this HARD in "Ghosts of the See-Through Zone" after Chris returns Derailing his romance with Beth, with him assuming the two will end up together. It gets to the point he's about to stab Chris but backs out due to Chris' time travel adventures giving him a happy childhood.
- Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Take any older peer Danny is seen with as a kid, and they will be shown making his life hell. This is best seen in Dan Before Time and Dimension Garden.

The slightly spacey, yet quite intelligent, member of the Bravest Warriors.

- Ambiguously Bi: In the comics. She goes looking for people to smooch and ends up getting smooched by both Wallow and a female assassin who was sent to kill them.
- Taken even further in the animated show with the finale of season 4, where her and plum openly kiss each other for reasons not yet explained.

In "Season of the Mitch", it's revealed that only she can bear the Aeon Worm's offspring, which will devour the universe while the Aeon Worm remains in the See-Through Zone.

- Took a Level in Jerkass: in season 4, with one example being that she willingly destroyed other people's mailboxes and private property because she was venting about her breakup with Zachary Ryan.

- Friend to All Living Things: Frequently brings pets home from missions. Word of God said he treats the aliens he brings home as roommates instead of pets.

He ends up with Himmel Mancheese, a genderless blob monster in Season 3

- Talking the Monster to Death: Pulls it off at least thrice in the comics.

A rainbow colored bear with a mustache and one of Wallow's pets.
- Badass Mustache
- Bears Are Bad News: Played for Laughs, as he's more an annoying Jerkass instead of any serious threat.
- Dye Hard: Admits he dyes his fur during "Catbug's Away Team".
- Jerkass: His response to getting the Gas-Powered stick is to hit everyone he can find with it, including Plum who was being rather friendly to him.
- However he seems to have his moments. For example, he assured that Chris returned to the hideout in time to offer his present to Beth.
- He loves giving gifts... even though they have a tendency to explode, due to being bombs.
- Jive Turkey
- Lethally Stupid: In "Impossibomb", he insist on giving Wallow a present despite it obviously being a bomb. And he does it again but with Catbug as the bomb.
A cross between a cat and a ladybug that lives with the Bravest Warriors.
- Ascended Extra: Has appeared in most episodes of Season 2 after hardly appearing in Season 1.
- Adorable Abomination: As cute and cuddly as he is, he originated from the See-Through Zone and is implied to be related to the Aeon Worm.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Upon being given an electric razor.
- And he is part cat, as evidenced when it's revealed he beheaded Jelly Kid in "Jelly Kid Forever".

- Big Damn Heroes: Comes out of literally nowhere to save Beth in the Season 2 premiere.
- Catchphrase:"Everything is OKAY!"
- "I'M CATBUG!"
- Cats Are Mean: This stereotype is how the Bravest Warriors justify the beheading of Jelly Kid as a Furry Reminder.

- Comedic Sociopathy: Ripped Jelly Kid's head off for no reason and was cheerfully remorseless about it over breakfast.
- Cone of Shame: Dons one at Jelly Kid's funeral. This might mean he's been neutered in order to suppress the animal aggressiveness that led him to kill Jelly Kid.
- Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Due to being voiced by a grade-schooler, he has some pronunciation issues.
- Dimensional Traveler: He lives in two separate dimensions that he can jump back and forth between, though Catbug himself doesn't seem to know how he does it or how to control it.
- It's implied in "Dimension Garden" that it's because he was born in the See-Through Zone.
- Immortality: Cheerfully announces this in the comic:Plum: My grand-uncle lives on this planet. I hope he's not deceased.Catbug: I'm Immortal!
- Large Ham: His voice actor was 6 when the show started, so he's hammy in the sense only little kids are. He even does his own soap opera (which are usually hammy), doubling the amount of Ham.
- Mix-and-Match Critter: Physically, a humanoid blue cat with ladybug wings.
- As a baby, he has the form of an insectoid larva, was discovered in the same garden as the Aeon Worm, and his massive, slimy pupal form seems to indicate relation to the Aeon Worm, explaining his dimension-jumping.
- No Indoor Voice: Again, his voice actor was 6 when the show debuted, so he has a child's level of volume control.
- Older Than They Look: Despite what his short size and 6-year-old voice might indicate, he's actually 10 years old (potentially older, depending on his larval lifespan).
- Shapeshifter Baggage: He manages to spin a massive cocoon in a single night and still has enough time and matter to fully metamorphise by the break of dawn.
- Shoo Out the Clowns: Is only present in "The Parasox Pub" for the Emotion Lord to possess and isn't at all present in the two part season finale after being fairly prominent for most of the season. Unsurprisingly, the episodes are the darkest the series has gotten so far.
- Reality Ensues: In "Jelly Kid Forever", he gruesomely kills Jelly Kid to "catch him for Danny" and is rather cheerful about it the next morning, reminding us that as cute as he may be, he's still part-cat.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Mix-and-Match Critter of two cute animals with the voice and personality of a Cheerful Child? You betcha.

Villains, Monsters and Assorted Jerks
Reverend Ralph Waldo Pickle Chips/Johnny Tezuka
A worshipper of the Aeon Worm and a man mysteriously referred to in the note Beth received from the Seethrough Zone. He turns out to be Beth's father and the original leader of the Courageous Battlers. He sealed the Aeon Worm, along with countless other villains, in the See-Though Zone to begin with, but since then, he has fallen prey to the brainwashing of the Aeon Worm and becomes a mindless devotee.
In "Hamster Priest", despite being locked up by Beth and the Bravest Warriors, he is revealed to be the Big Bad of Season 2, and has been brainwashing hamsters into joining his cult. He eventually faces off with Beth, Wallow and Danny in "Season of the Mitch", having created an army of hamsters and now with the Aeon Worm as his sticker pet. He is eventually defeated by Danny smashing apart the dome over his head with a stick.
Keep in mind that the spoilers below may be from the comics as well as the web series.

- Asian and Nerdy: He's a brilliant scientist.
- Big Bad: He ends up being the main antagonist of Season 2 once he begins brainwashing the hamsters into his cult in "Hamster Priest". He also confessed to sending the other Courageous Battlers to the See-Through Zone in "From The Inside Room."
- Brainwashed: By the Aeon Worm, to the extent that he has to be locked up after Beth rescues him from the See-Though Zone.
- More Than Mind Control: The comics reveal that he slowly but surely gave his will over to the worm, though he clearly was reluctant to use his daughter as a guinea pig. It's implied the worm's influence gradually overtook his.
- Body Horror: In "Season of the Mitch" his face and body are covered in horrible blisters once he's made the worm his sticker pet.
- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Uses the belief of his brainwashed hamster congregation to summon the worm as a sticker pet in "Season of the Mitch".
- Cult: He is the leader of one devoted to the Aeon Worm in "Aeon Worm" and has begun a new one with the hamsters in "Hamster Priest".

- Et Tu, Brute?: After his HeelFace Turn, he casually confesses that he was the one who betrayed his fellow Courageous Battlers and is responsible for their being trapped. He does tell Danny they can be saved as he's taken away by Opticon guards.
- Fallen Hero: As Beth's father, he was the former leader of the Courageous Battlers, but he's since been completely brainwashed by the Aeon Worm and now seeks to summon him.
- The comics reveal that he was slowly led to the dark side by the worm, even giving him a way out of the See-Through Zone through Beth.
- HeelFace Turn: Revealed to have turned away from his evil ways in "From The Inside Room". He'd served thousands of years in the Time Opticon and changed his name back to Johnny Tezuka. And he even supports Danny during HIS thousand years in the Opticon, willingly adding thousands of years to his own sentence to stop it from happening to Danny instead.
- Knight of Cerebus: Granted, he still has his share of silly traits, but the episodes that feature him as the Big Bad, especially "Season of The Worm" and "Season of the Mitch", are some of the darkest in the series.

- Mouth of Sauron: Implied to be one for the Aeon Worm.

- Truly Single Parent: Beth reveals that he had a "pregnancy license" and created & raised her on his own.
- Walking Spoiler: Not so much his worship of the Aeon Worm but the fact he's Beth's father for "Aeon Worm" and the main villain of Season 2 for "Hamster Priest".
