In General

  • Adaptation Species Change: Scott Pilgrim and several of his friends go from humans with (inexplicable) powers to Meta-humans who have no need to resort to vigilantism.
  • Canada, Eh?: Instead of Toronto (which was heavily damaged during the Manhattaning and renamed), Scott Pilgrim and his friends all live in Maple City.
  • Take That!: Since the city has become the antithesis of everything the Norsefire London stands for, the inhabitants of Maple City on more than one occasion paint graffiti insulting or criticizing the government of Adam Sutler.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: The "Continue?" VOX Boxes detail what the residents of Maple City get up to after Scott finally defeats Gideon Graves.

  • World of Snark: Yes, almost everyone has had their moments of Snark, usually concerning Scott.

     Scott Pilgrim 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scott_pilgrim_earth_27.jpg

Scott Pilgrim is a citizen of Maple City. He's the bassist for the indie rock band Sex Bob-omb, but he's also the dishwasher at the Happy Avocado to pay the bills. He's also a meta-human. He's quick to point out that he's not psychic, at least in the normal sense. He just has a more powerful aura than normal people and he has not really noticed it does anything for him other than giving him an odd perspective on things.


  • Charm Person: His psionic potential is one of the reasons why women latch onto him, or at least bond quickly with them.
  • Childish Older Sibling: The reason his sister Stacey calls him Little Brother despite being younger than him is because of his lack of emotional maturity.
  • Cool Sword: His intrinsic sword named The Power of Love.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Scott Pilgrim may not be bright, but he's also the "best fighter in the province".
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Divine Date: His girlfriend Ramona is basically a God in Human Form.
  • Forgetful Jones: Scott has a terrible memory.
  • Fun T-Shirt: He has many different t-shirts with several designs.
  • Genius Ditz: For the most part, he's a ditzy dork who needs his friends' help or advice on most matters. However, he is still the best fighter in the province and a talented cook.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: His reaction when he sees Kim and Ramona drunkenly making out. Nega-Scott approves too.
  • The Heart: While Scott can be insensitive, ditzy, and a flake, he is genuinely the most friendly and welcoming of the group. In fact, they all met one another through Scott and despite the snark, they call care about one another.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: How is he a proficient Sword Fighter and martial artist? Or why is he considered the best fighter in the province? Who cares?
  • Innocently Insensitive: Connected to Ambiguous Disorder; Scott seems to not fully understand when he is acting insensitive or not thinking things through. He doesn't meant to hurt anybody, but his bad decisions still hurts himself and others.
  • It Runs in the Family: Mistaking people's names is also something his mother does occasionally.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Scott is not really a bad person, just someone with a lot of flaws and still room for improvement.
  • Let Us Never Speak of This Again: This is his reaction at witnessing Knives and Kim making out. Nega-Scott agrees.
  • Likes Older Women: Well, when your current girlfriend is a literal goddess...
  • Medium Awareness: Scott frequently argues with the narrator in his Vox Pops.
  • Never My Fault: Despite calling himself a "Paragon" when it comes to dating, Scott's biggest issues when it comes to relationships is that he refuses to see his own flaws, blaming all the problems of the relationship to the girlfriend and ignoring or forgetting the mistakes and bad things he's done. Stacey suspects he does this unconsciously to make it easier to live with himself. He moves past this later on.
  • Nobody Loves the Bassist: Which is why he got stuck with the role — no-one else wanted it.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Stephen Stills describes him as this when he fights Matthew Patel.
  • Oblivious to Love: Back in high-school it took him quite some time to finally get Lisa Miller and Kim Pine's affections.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Wallace, who is his closest male friend, but also happens to be gay.
  • The Power of Love: This is literally what allows him to defeat the Katanayagi twins.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He very much likes bread, especially garlic bread.
  • Wouldnt Hita Girl: Scott has a huge aversion for fighting women.

     Ramona Flowers 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ramona_flowers_earth_27.jpg

Ramona Flowers represents the spirit of adventure and wanderlust of their ancient self. She has assumed a feminine form, has the trappings of a messenger goddess, and changes her hair color "like every three weeks". Fearing that she will be forced into accepting this course of action, Ramona has been on the run from her other exiles for many years.


     Kimberly "Kim" Pine 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kim_pine_earth_27.jpg
Kim was Scott's first girlfriend, his longtime friend, and the drummer of Sex Bob-omb. Kim is known for having a rather cynical view of the world and those around her (including Scott).
  • Adaptational Sexuality: While in original graphic novel she had moments of Ambiguously Bi, here she's explicitly bisexual, and ends up in a relationship with Knives.
  • All Drummers Are Animals: She's an expert drummer and tends to dislike other female drummers.
  • Amicable Exes: While her relationship with Scott is over, and though not a "fan" of Scott's actions (and vocal about it), Kim seems to be his truest "friend".
  • Boxing Battler: She's an expert boxer and knows how to use it with her drumsticks.
  • The Cynic: She doesn't have a particularly optimistic mindset.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's listed as a master in sarcasm.
  • Grumpy Bear: She is very grouchy, but she turns out to be a decent person.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Snarky though she may be, she is a very good friend to Scott, using a combination of patience and Brutal Honesty to help him come to terms with his own flaws.
  • Parental Neglect: Her parents didn't pay that much attention to her, and their relationship became estranged when they forced her to move to another school.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Almost always looks either bored or annoyed.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: She's just 5'6"/165cm tall, yet she's the muscle of the group.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Has green eyes, auburn hair and is the drummer of Sex Bob-omb.
  • Super Strength: Miss Pine can lift close to 900 kilograms when properly motivated.
  • Super Toughness: She reports being uninjured by collision with a high-speed automobile and jumping off the roof of a six-story building.
  • Tsundere: She's very snarky toward Scott, but is one of his closest friends and given their past relationship, her attitude masks that she still cares about him.

     Stephen Stills 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stephen_stills_earth_27.jpg

Stephen Stills is the lead singer and guitarist of Sex Bob-omb. He is an anxious worrywart despite his metahuman powers. He was Scott's roommate at the meta-academy in Maple City and remains one of Scott's closest friends, even getting Scott his job at the Happy Avocado where he works with Stephen (though Stephen is a cook).


  • The Alcoholic: Alcohol is one of his many issues.
  • Alliterative Name: Stephen Stills.
  • Best Friend: His best friend is Young Neil.
  • Coming-Out Story: He realizes he's gay thanks to Jimmy.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Though he tends to emphasize the deadpan over the snark.

  • Full-Name Basis: Scott always refer to him by his full name despite being friends.
  • Last-Name Basis: Most of his friends just call him by his last name.
  • Mellow Fellow: When he's not stressed out, he's incredibly laid-back and chill.
  • Mood-Swinger: Almost always incredibly chill about everything, but becomes a nervous, paranoid wreck whenever he's about to perform on stage. Surprisingly enough, it's one of the few things that can annoy Scott.
  • Mysterious Past: Stills doesn't like to talk about his childhood, although it's possible one of his parents was abusive.
  • Perma-Stubble: His beard is in an stubble.
  • Power Copying: Adomopathy, as defined by ARGUS, is the ability to mimic or replicate the skills, knowledge, and/or talents of others around oneself, and be able to use those skills and talents as one's own. In the case of Stills, he is not able to directly duplicate any one person's skills, only taking residual samplings from the auras and Odic Field around him.
  • Relationship Upgrade: With Jimmy Comeau after he realizes he's actually gay.
  • The Stoic: He's an incredibly chill dude most of the time.
  • Straight Gay: Once he comes out, much like Jimmy, he behaves much the same as always.

     Knives Chau 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/knives_chau_earth_27_0.jpg

Knives Chau is another of Scott's exes... though she's not sure she's ready to give up on them just yet. She's a huge Sex Bob-omb fan and is currently in her final year at the meta-human training academy in Maple City. Oh yeah, and she's a ninja and so is her father.


  • Adaptational Sexuality: In the graphic novel, she came across as Ambiguously Bi. Here, she eventually takes her relationship with Kim to the next level, so it can be safely assumed she's bisexual.
  • Age-Gap Romance: She dated Scott when she was 17 and he was 23, so while it was legally acceptable, his friends still didn't like it.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Her file lists her orientation as Heterosexual?, which refers to her making out with Kim in the graphic novel. Also she's a little too interested in Envy Adams and Lynette Guycott. As of the most recent VOX Box, however, the "Ambiguously" part gets ditched.
  • Amicable Exes: Even if it took her some time, she does come to accept the end of her relationship with Scott, although she still cares a lot about him.
  • Flash Step: Her meta-human power allows her to teleport short distances.
  • Friendless Background: Because her name made her look intimidating, she didn't have many friends.
  • Genki Girl: She's certainly a cheery and energetic girl.
  • The Glomp: Every time she sees Scott.
  • Interchangeable Asian Cultures: Ninjas are traditionally Japanese. Knives is Chinese.
  • Knife Nut: True to her name, she's an excellent knife fighter and knife thrower.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Her name really is Knives. She was named that way by her sword-collecting father John Chau.
  • Little Miss Badass: She's young and small, but is a damn good fighter.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: She was otherwise an ordinary girl before she met Scott, but became way too obsessed with him thanks to their psychic link and even tries to kill Ramona to win him back.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: She eventually attempts to kill Ramona, although she doesn't take her that seriously.
  • No Accounting for Taste: Her friend Stacey thinks she has a bad taste in boys and music.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: She's a ninja with a blue and yellow scarf.
  • Skunk Stripe: Has the front of her hair dyed red.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Very much infatuated with Scott Pilgrim.
  • Waif-Fu: Her small size does not diminish her ability to kick ass.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Her Network File actually has to point out that "Knives" isn't a nickname or alias, but what her parents actually named her.
  • You Are Fat: That's the best insult she can come up with when she goes after Ramona.

     Wallace Wells 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wallace_wells_earth_27.jpg
Wallace is Scott's cool gay roommate. He is also a psychic himself (though he refers to this as 'chi'). He often acts as Scott's voice of reason.
  • Accidental Misnaming: Scott's mother occasionally calls him Wendell.
  • The Alcoholic: If you've met Wallace, he was probably drunk, to some degree. He's almost always buzzed, even when he's at work. He at least never drives and either takes the bus or simply walks.

  • Berserk Button: He hates Envy Adams and the feeling is mutual.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's a master at sarcasm.
  • The Charmer: Extremely talented at making a good first impression.

  • Gay Best Friend: He's Stacey Pilgrim's best friend, and he also happens to be gay.
  • Gossipy Hens: He loves juicy gossip, which is why one of his nicknames is "Gossipy Bitch".
  • Has a Type: He has a weakness for men with glasses.
  • Hidden Depths: He's an expert cinematologist.
  • Hypocritical Humor: He tells Scott off for cheating on Knives with Ramona, even though he's a cheater himself.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He loves to screw with Scott and can be a catty bitch pretty frequently, but he's a loyal and reliable friend who always has Scott's back in the end.
  • Parental Abandonment: His biological parents, suspected to be named Simon and Nadia Wells, left him at a church when he was only a couple of days old.
  • Psychic Powers: He has the ability to manipulate the minds of others. Wallace finds alcohol helps him keep him from using his powers to their full potential which helps him avoid the temptation of using his powers to engage in the same slippery slope behavior that got him into trouble to begin with.
  • Really Gets Around: He's had so many hook-ups they're not listed.
  • Straight Gay: Most of the time, although he can act as Camp Gay very easily.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He pretty much constantly switches between mocking Scott about every aspect of his life and being his most loyal, helpful and understanding friend.

  • Alliterative Name: Neil Nordegraf.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Despite currently dating Knives, Stacey hopes his admiration for her brother Scott isn't really romantic in nature.
  • Astral Projection: Neil has the ability to see and hear other locations. He accomplished this by tapping into the Od and riding the current of psychic energy. This is a lot like astral projection, but Neil does not project the astral self, nor does he enter a trance state. He simply can experience two different locations' events simultaneously.

  • Fanboy: Considers himself Sex Bob-omb biggest fan.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He idolizes Scott, and his hair and manner of dress make him look like Scott's clone. When Scott finally calls him just Neil, he mumbles it's the best day of his life.
  • In-Series Nickname: Young Neil, since his father, who Scott had met before, is called Old Neil. Scott finally calls him "Neil" after undergoing Character Development.
  • Non-Action Guy: A Lover, not a fighter.
  • The Quiet One: Neil is not particularly talkative.
  • Tag Along Kid: For his sister's group of friends back in school, and even nowadays he's the second youngest person in Scott's group of friends.

  • Abusive Parents: More like neglectful, but borderline abuse, being ignored and always feeling she needed to 'fix' something.
  • Achilles' Heel: The back of her knees is ticklish, as Scott reveals to Ramona. Enough to make her have The Immodest Orgasm on the spot.
  • Attention Whore: Suffers from Histrionic Personality Disorder. Stemming from the neglect of her childhood, the belief that she needed to correct something about herself and the attention that she got as a music star is what led to her becoming Envy.

  • Kick Chick: She's an expert kickboxer.
  • Immune to Mind Control: Not really immune, but she has a telepathic resistance.
  • Mindlink Mates: Envy and Todd's relationship is not simply romance, it is also a symbiotic partnership where Todd uses his divine musical ability to create a subliminal frequency which amplifies Envy's psionic effect and even allows the effect to carry over onto their songs' recordings (though to a reduced effect).
  • Rich Bitch: Her musical career has been good to her financially. Same can't be said for her attitude.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Intense green eyes and fiery red hair, she's also the ex-girlfriend of Scott.
  • That Man Is Dead: Stopped being called Natalie and became Envy when she embraced the "better" self she had created to become a star.

  • Villain in a White Suit: More like Evil Diva In A White Coat.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Not only Scott, but also with Julie Powers and Stephanie Nordegraf.
  • Woman Scorned: Upon discovering that Todd was cheating on her with Lynette, she confronts him and gives him a Groin Attack. His response is to punch her, hard.

     Stacey Pilgrim 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stacey_pilgrim_earth_27.jpg

  • Official Couple: Currently dating Jimmy Comeau. Or at least she was...until Wallace Wells seduced him from her. More recently, she has Ship Tease with Young Neil.
  • Psychic Powers: Stacey is a "Class 4 Psionic" which means she has four quantified psionic abilities. Her abilities are Telepathy, Telekinesis, telesthesia, and telegnosis. Hence her T4Teen Network moniker.
    • Hyper-Awareness: Stacey has telegnosis which is a highly developed form of supernatural senses that allows her to receive sensory input without physical interaction by attuning to the Odic frequency of her immediate locality.
    • Stacey's telekinetic potential is comparable to her own physical fitness. She can lift, at most, about fifty to eighty pounds - but with exertion.
    • Stacey's telepathy seems limited to surface thoughts and has limited range, but she is considerably gifted in the application and finds it easy to scan the thoughts around her and is even able to tune out with ease.
    • Telesthesia is a form of remote viewing where Stacey can view events happening in other locations. She is limited to places she has been before and once she tunes into a place, she is locked into a certain fixed point. At present she is only able to perceive blurry images and distorted sound.

  • Death Glare: Her default expression.

  • The Friend Nobody Likes: She might be part of their group of friends, but neither Scott or the rest of the group like her too much because of her winning personality.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason behind her general unpleasantness is in large part because of the deaths of her parents in a car accident.
  • Hidden Depths: She's mostly a Jerkass, but deep beneath that she's someone who's lonely and trying to fill the void left by the deaths of her parents and her constantly failing relationship with Stills.
  • In Vino Veritas: If you heard Julie talk when she's got alcohol in her, you have probably heard her vent about Envy and Stephanie "ditching" her, calling them "[expletive] [expletive]y [expletive]s". But whenever Envy's in town, Julie's usually glued to Envy's side the whole time.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: While she's always been foul-mouthed, Julie used to only drop profanity when she was upset. Since the loss of her parents, she swears much more liberally.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: A lot of people speculate that Julie throws so many parties as a way of surrounding herself with friends as a means to help fill the emptiness she feels has consumed her life since her parents' passing.
  • Meganekko: Wears rounded glasses, which help convey her usual Death Glare.
  • Pet the Dog: She actually allows Scott to stay at her house when he has nowhere else to go during Christmas.

  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: She has pale skin, black hair and her emotionless demeanor makes her rather eerie.
  • Emotionless Girl: She almost never displays emotion.
  • Punny Name: In French, lunettes means glasses. Her last name is also a reference to a recurring boss in the game her band is named after.
  • The Quiet One: She hardly ever talks. This contrasts with her hedonistic personality.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Since she's near-sighted, she wears these.

     Lisa Miller

  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's blonde and is a very nice person.
  • Just Friends: Despite the suspicions from Roxie and Ramona's jealousy to the otherwise, Lisa and Scott are this. However, Lisa has shown that she may want it to be more.
  • Little Big Brother: She's older than Garrett, but he's 5'9"/175cm tall if he were to stand to Lisa's 5'6/168cm tall.
  • Master Actor: Well, she is an actress and her meta-human ability makes it very easy.
  • Power Copying: Lisa has the ability to learn just about any skill simply by seeing it performed. Acts observed in person are duplicated to a much greater level of proficiency than those observed on television. Any skill which she has developed in such a manner fades as new ones are made.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Loves to snark at Scott's obliviousness and bad memory.
  • The Heartless: He was created by Scott pushing aside the memories and flaws he didn't want on himself. This came at the cost of making Scott even more oblivious than usual.

     Lucas Lee 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucas_lee_earth_27.jpg

  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: His appearance is based on Chris Evans, who played him in the 2010 film.
  • Designated Villain: In-Universe. Despite him being labelled as one of the Seven Evil Exiles, he doesn't really do anything evil. For a start, he tells Scott that he and Ramona broke up because she cheated on him, not the other way around. He even refuses to fight Scott for Ramona, except when Patel forces him to.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Wallace sure does and even Scott can't help but comment he's hot.

  • Greed: One of his weaknesses is greed.

Todd Ingram represents the artistic passion and sense of entitlement that the exiles once held. Using his mastery of music, he has established himself as a celebrity by becoming a famed musician. Todd is also known to make pacts with other gods and spirits for additional power in his quest to become a psychic juggernaut.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Instead of having powers thanks to "veganism", his powers come from deals with other mystical entities.

  • Blondes Are Evil: Evil musician and psychic juggernaut who just so happens to be blonde.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He can't hurt Ramona when Scott comes to challenge him. But he can use Envy and Lynette to make sure she doesn't escape after he defeats Scott.

  • Dumb Muscle: Despite his physical prowess, Todd's not actually that clever. He doesn't know that gelato isn't vegan, for crying out loud!
  • Evil Vegetarian: More like Evil Vegan, but in contrast to the comics, he doesn't get his Psychic Powers from his diet. He's still not clever enough to abide by his diet, though.
  • French Jerk: He was born in Viking-occupied Normandy, and Mr. Ingram is a massive Jerkass.
  • A God Am I: Well, technically, he already is a god, but since he was born on an altar dedicated to the god Freyr, he eventually began thinking himself to be that god, too.

  • Power Glows: When using his powers his eyes and hair glow.
  • Power at a Price: Todd is known to make pacts with other gods and spirits for additional power. Todd is also known for breaking these pacts through neglect or lack of interest.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: He motivated Natalie to continue the path she had set for herself to become Envy, and his influence also strained her relationship with her once friend Stephanie Nordegraf.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He's just as much a jerk when he powers up and his hair goes white.
  • Would Hit a Girl: As Envy finds out when she confronts him for cheating on her.
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: His response to Scott's Pre-Mortem One-Liner, "You were ve-gone, but now you will BE-gone!", right before Scott headbutts him into thin air.

  • Death Glare: Her profile picture depicts her with this expression.
  • Dying Declaration of Hate: She doesn't actually die, but after Scott defeats her, she says to him "I hate you so much..." Played for Laughs, because she says it in response to Scott taking her comment "you'll never defeat the twins (the Katayanagis)" to be another comment about her breasts.
  • Evil Is Petty: Used her connections with the League of Assassins to have Wallace and Scott's landlord killed and then ask Malcolm Merlyn to evict them. All just to drive a wedge between Scott and Ramona.
  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow: She has black eyeliner under her eyes, which make her look more intimidating.
  • Girlish Pigtails: While not particularly girly, this is her style.

  • Hellbent For Leather: She wears a black leather biker's jacket.
  • Incest Is Relative: Well, when two of the people you've had relationships with (Todd Ingram and Ramona Flowers) used to be part of the same god as you, Roxy qualifies as this.

  • Psychopathic Womanchild: She sometimes comes across as quite immature when she's snarking at Ramona at the same time as fighting Scott.

Kyle Katanayagi
Kyle & Ken Katayanagi are the fifth and sixth souls of the broken god. They represent duality, knowledge, and oppositional nature.

     Gideon Gordon Graves 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gideon_gordon_graves_earth_27.jpg

Gideon Graves, who represents their collective ambition, authority, and is believed to have been the "core soul" responsible for whatever behavior got them punished in the first place. Gideon is the daimonic soul responsible for pushing the others to reunite in a bid to return to their former glory. While powerful in a very physical and mystical manner, Gideon prefers to rely on what he has come to regard as "true power" - monetary wealth and emotional manipulation.


  • Alliterative Name: Gideon Gordon Graves.
  • Bespectacled Bastard Boyfriend: The most callous of the Exiles and the only one with glasses.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Just like in the comic and the movie, Gideon is based on Jason Schwartzman.
  • Cool Sword: An adamant sword called "Feller of Foes"
  • Evil Counterpart: To Scott. The two both wield katanas and are not that good to their partners in relationship (though Gideon is way worse than Scott is). However, Scott is willing to change and overcome his flaws. Gideon is not.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He tries to be charming and suave when interacting with Scott at the Chaos Theatre. Key word being "tries". And then after running Scott through with his katana, he cheerfully declares "Drinks are on me!"
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears red glasses and he's easily the most manipulative and dangerous of all exiles.
  • The Good Chancellor: He served as one for Queen Teth-Asah of Khandaq during the 11th century.
  • Jerkass: The nicest thing about him is that he's a douche.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: He certainly thinks they are, judging by the one he's carrying.
  • Pet the Dog: When he was captured by Nazis during WWII and sent to a concentration camp, he turned the tables on his captors and broke free, helping dozens of Jews to escape to England.
  • Punny Name: Take a wild guess what the 7th letter of the alphabet is.
  • Sinister Shades: Wears red-tinted glasses and he sure can be sinister.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Wears black pants and a red shirt. Also he's a Jerkass.
  • Smug Snake: He's a manipulative, arrogant, and all-around unlikeable person.
  • Villain in a White Suit: Wears a white coat and is the one Exile that can be considered evil.
  • We Can Rule Together: Offers Scott the chance to join the Exiles even if he's not a daimon since both were left by Ramona, but when Scott refuses he runs him with his sword, leaving him for dead.
