Shared Tropes

  • Adorkable: With the exception of Tord, they were all like this at some time (Edd is the prime example, Tom was before he Took a Level in Jerkass, and Matt has recently shown these traits, like in Hide and Seek, and Fun Dead).
  • Aerith and Bob: Edd, Matt and Tom are all very common names in the Anglosphere, but "Tord" is likely to sound much more unusual and exotic to English-speakers' ears. Subverted in that it's actually a very common name in his native Norway.
  • Amusing Injuries: They all have their share of humiliating slapstick. Moreso with Tom and Matt.
  • As Himself: Up to Edd's death this was the case, and then it got complicated. When stepping down as the showrunner and Tom the character's VA Ridgewell made it clear that the characters at that point are separate entities from the actors.
  • Author Avatar: The main characters are based off of Edd and his friends; TomSka, Matt and Tord.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: If the "Saloonatics" designs are canon, then Edd (Big), Matt (Thin) and Tom (Short) are this. Tord is an outlier with an average body type. A rare case where the Big one is the leader (most of the time).
  • Childhood Friends: According to episodes like "25 Feet Under the Seat" and "PowerEdd", all four of them were friends since they were little kids. Taking it further, they went to school with the Neighbors, Paul, Laurel, Diwi, Hellucard, Ben, Lucy and Wonchop.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: While it isn't hard to tell them apart in the first place, they all have differently-colored hoodies to further tell them apart. Edd wears green, Tom wears blue, Matt wears purple (though he also is usually seen wearing a green overcoat) and Tord wears red (though he also used to wear a black jacket).
  • Divergent Character Evolution: All four of them were more or less indistinguishable from one another, but they eventually became more defined around the time Tord left.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Edd is the Optimist, Matt is the Realist, Tom is the Cynic, Tord was the Apathetic.
  • Improbable Weapon User: When it comes to brawl, they'll grab whatever is close to them. Sometimes it's a shotgun, sometimes it's a mop.
  • Manchild: All four of them are young adults who tend to act like rowdy teenagers. Tord seems to have matured a little after his return, though.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Edd's Nice, Tom's Mean and Matt's In-Between. Tord also fit into the Mean category when he was around.
  • Only One Name: None of the boys' surnames are revealed. In "Saloonatics", Edd and Tom's (possible) ancestors have the surnames "Gold" and "Thompson" respectively, but it's not clear if those are carried over to them (if they are, this would make Tom a case of Repetitive Name). Tord and Matt's surnames are depicted as being the same as their real world counterparts in "Zombeh Attack 2", but this may have been retconned since then.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: They are never seen working. Edd is implied to be an artist, (like his real life counterpart) but is rarely seen drawing anything.
  • Pungeon Master: Edd takes the cake, but Matt and Tom also drop a pun every once in a while.
  • True Companions: They live in one house and usually treat each other with respect. Emphasis on usually.

    Edd 

Edd

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__edd_by_scaredyash006-d42uizx_680.png

The unofficial leader of the quartet/trio who wears a green hoodie, an optimistic artist fond of cola, bacon and puns.

Voiced by: Edd Gould (2004 - 2012), Tim Hautekiet (2012 - present)

  • Adorkable: Can be like this.
  • Berserk Button: Don't take the last can of coke.... unless you like a shotgun to the face.
  • Big Fun: If the Saloonatics body types are canon, then this applies.
  • Characterization Marches On: Downplayed and justified due to the change in voice actor. When Gould played the role, Edd was a laid-back, generally soft-spoken everyman. After Gould's death and Hautekiet took over the role, Edd became considerably more energetic and loud, though he's still an everyman.
  • Character Outlives Actor: Sadly.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Has brown eyes in a few fanarts.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Edd's Tales of Boredom.
  • Driven to Suicide: Twice. Once in "This World of Edd" and then again in "WTFuture" (see Future Edd's bio for details). Both times played for laughs. Both times are less funny now.
  • Future Me Scares Me: See Future Edd's bio for details.
  • Jerkass Ball: Sometimes, such as in "The Dudette Next Door" where we fights with Tord for Kim's affection and seems to only care about her looks.
  • Keet: Moreso when Tim took over the role, though he had his moments in eariler episodes too.
  • Morality Pet: To Tord. "Christmas Special 2005" reveals that Tord would have become a megalomaniacal communist without Edd's influence. And "The End" reveals that after Tord left his company, that's exactly what happened.
  • Nice Guy: Easily the nicest member of the main group, though even he had his occasional Jerkass moments.
  • The Nth Doctor: The VA change is explained by Edd getting accidentally zapped by a voice changer gun in "Space Face".
  • Out of Focus: For being the title character, Edd has little relevance during the final two-parter. It's more about the rivalry between Tom and Tord.
  • Pungeon Master: Usually the first one to throw out a dumb pun when the situation calls for it.
  • Sanity Ball: Passed between him and Tom.
  • Team Mom: In later episodes, he sometimes slips into this category. Can easily be seen in the opening to "The End (part 1)", which not only makes him look like a mom and Tom look like a dad, but also makes Matt look like their child.
  • Temporarily a Villain: In Tord's Adventure. Until the end.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Like the others, though not as much in more recent episodes (most likely because of the actual Edd's passing):
    • In Eddsworld Halloween Short 2005, he's bludgeoned with a sledgehammer.
    • In Zombeh Nation, he gets gunned down.
    • In Zombeh Attack III, he gets bitten by a zombeh.
    • In Eddsworld Halloween Special 2007, his head is vertically bisected.
    • In Matt Sucks, he gets impaled by several stakes.
    • In This World of Edd, he commits suicide from being alone.
    • In Sugar, Sugar he gets beaten to death by soda cans.
    • In Climate Change he dies along with Tom and Matt when a massive tidal wave comes toward their house once again in the end.
    • In the non-canon short Rock Bottom, he and Tom drown once he accidentally floods the house.
  • Token Good Teammate: Much kinder than his friends. As long as you don't steal the last can of coke.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He may have been the Token Good Teammate, but he wasn't particularly a saint in the older episodes. For example, in "Ruined", he ruthlessly pushed Tom into a huge amount of traps. However, he got more kinder in the Legacy Era.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cola, bacon or bacon cola.

    Tom 

Tom

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__tom_by_scaredyash006-d42sob6_4103.png

The sarcastic bitter eyeless alcoholic in a blue hoodie. Resident Jerkass and voice of reason, whenever Edd doesn't fulfill that role.

Voiced by: Thomas Ridgewell (2004 - 2016)

  • The Alcoholic: Sent to rehab once because of it.
  • Ambiguously Human: Given that he was born to two inanimate objects, has either no eyes or pitch black eyes and his "hair" has bones and blood inside of it and is briefly implied to have a mind of its own, it's not hard to wonder about him...
  • Berserk Button: Christmas, Diet Smirnoff, eye-related puns, destroying his bass.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: Chooses to be Impaled with Extreme Prejudice by his own stake gatling gun than let Vampire Matt bite him in Matt Sucks.
    Matt: Now that's just not fair.
  • Beyond the Impossible: How he was born. His mom's a bowling ball and his dad's a pineapple.
  • Big "NO!": After Edd attacks Future Edd with Tom's bass. Pictured to the right.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Used to have one.
  • Body Horror: In "Matt Sucks" and "PowerEdd", it's revealed that Tom's hair can bleed and has bones in it, respectively. How the heck does that work!?
  • Butt-Monkey: Usually was the punching bag of the gang in the earlier shorts, and was dealt the most physical abuse of the four; although starting in 2009, Matt has taken over this role. Deconstructed in the finale, when Tord comes back he's whipped back into this role and hates every second of it and eventually has enough of it and leaves the main group.
  • Catchphrase: "Lame." usually when he's annoyed, injured or about to be injured.
  • Characterization Marches On: He was more of a Cloudcuckoolander and a ditz before Tord left.
  • Companion Cube:
    • His hair, Steve.
    • Also his shoe, named Shoe. How creative.
    • And his bass, Susan.
    • Tom's overall tendency to befriend inanimate objects may have something to do with the fact that his parents were inanimate objects.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Tom's Tales of Awesome/Brilliance/Crazy.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Very bitter and sarcastic.
  • Eyeless Face: Just empty eye sockets.
  • The Grinch: Probably related to being a Jehovah's Witness.
  • Hollywood Jehovah's Witness: Subverted. It's offhandendly mentioned twice, but never appears again. He's never seen walking door-to-door with pamphlets.
  • Jerkass: He becomes this in later episodes.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Has his moments. For example he takes a laser beam to the eyes to save Santa in Zanta Claws II. As revealed in WTFuture, it gave him cancer. Or when he saved the world from Tord.
  • Mad Libs Catchphrase: "Holy X on a Y!"
  • Pet the Dog: He has a rare Friendship Moment with Matt at the end of "Space Face".
    Tom: Hey Matt?
    Matt: Yeah?
    Tom: You're alright.
    Matt: Really!?
    Tom: Yeah.
    Matt: YAAAAAAAAAY-
    (Matt's vanity then re-powers the ship, causing them to crash into their backyard)
  • Sanity Ball: Passed between him and Edd.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He leaves the house at the end of The End Part 1 when Edd lets Tord move into Tom's room.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: If the Saloonatics designs are canon, he's the shortest of the trio, while also having the most common sense.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Seems to be this, with his habit of randomly saying things like “Nobody will ever love me.”
  • Team Dad: In later episodes, he sometimes slips into this category. Can easily be seen in the opening to "The End (part 1)", which not only makes him look like a dad and Edd look like a mom, but also makes Matt look like their child.
  • Temporarily a Villain: In "Zanta Claws III".
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Tom holds the distinction of being the main cast member with the most deaths:
    • In Eddsworld Halloween Short 2005, he gets impaled on a sword by Matt.
    • In Zombeh Nation, he and the others are gunned down by a chopper crew.
    • In Ruined, he, along with Tord and Matt, are crushed by Edd as the four fall down a trapdoor-triggered pit.
    • In Eddsworld Halloween Special 2007, he's again skewered with a sword by the axe maniac (something he mocks).
    • In Matt Sucks, he impales himself with stakes after accidentally impaling Edd with a few.
    • In Climate Change, he dies, along with Matt and Edd. when a massive tidal wave comes toward their house once again in the end.
    • In Date Night, he gets eaten by radioactive socks.
    • In the non-canon short Rock Bottom, he and Edd drown once Edd tries to open the door to the house.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Has less moral restraints than the others, especially after Tord left the show.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Is more of a jerk mid-2009 onwards.
  • With Friends Like These...: He and Tord never got on well. When Tord moves back in during The End, it turns out they still don't..

    Matt 

Matt

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__matt_by_scaredyash006-d42q254_7226.png

The square-chinned ginger, he wears a purple hoodie and green overcoat. Vain and dumb, though the latter trait was absent in earlier episodes.

Voiced by Matt Hargreaves

  • Ambiguously Bi: Has gone on dates with girls in both "Date Night" and an arc from the comics, but has also made a film called "Matt on Matt Action.
  • Adorkable: In the Legacy Era onwards, but showed spays of this in previous episodes. This is likely because he Took a Level in Kindness.
  • Ascended Extra: At the start of the show, Matt was essentially a background character. Over time, he became a member of the main crew.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In "WT Future". Where he alters time to become the king of the world.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: All he needs is a fishbowl on his head.
  • Berserk Button: Don't ever punch him in the face.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: When Tord punches him in the face and destroys his and the other's house in The End Part 2, he snaps begin slamming buttons on a control panel to make Tord's mech attack itself. He only stops because of Edd (and even then, he was asking for a shot at Tord).
    Matt: This is for the house. This is for my friends! And THIS... IS FOR MY FACE!!
  • Brainless Beauty: In later episodes at least, he's shown to be vain and not very bright.
  • Butt-Monkey: Becomes this later in the series once Tom was no longer the Chew Toy of the show.
  • Catchphrase: "Not the face!" and "Indubitably".
  • Characterization Marches On: Before Tord's departure, Matt was actually a lot more like Tom—the smart one/Only Sane Man, a little on the surly side and had the additional detail of apparently hating Edd for no readily explained reason. Compare this to later episodes, where he's ditzy to the point that Edd and Tom are surprised at him knowing words with more than two syllables, constantly smiling and cracking jokes and clearly considers Edd to be one of his best friends.
  • Defrosting Ice King: Towards Edd, in the later episodes. In Hello Hellhole, Matt's "personal hell" was Edd. And even after taking a memory eraser gun to the face, he still shown detest towards Edd, such as "Matt sucks". But by the Legacy era, he warmed up to Edd and even shared jokes with him in The Snogre. Also helps that Matt Took a Level in Kindness.
  • Demonic Possession: Was possessed at the start of Hammer and Fail 2 and in Trick or Threat.
  • The Ditz: Once Tord left, Matt slowly evolved into the idiot (but usually well-meaning) member of the group.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Despite being as dumb as rocks in later episodes, Matt will sometimes offer intelligent solutions to problems. This is shown particularly in Hammer and Fail 2 and Zanta Claws II.
  • Flanderization: The character's stupidity and narcissism went up after 2010, which was common before, although had become his main character trait. Justified in The End, which reveals he accidentally erased his memories.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: In Hide and Seek where both Tom and Edd trick Matt into thinking that they want to play hide and seek with him but immediately go back to watching TV while Matt freezes to death while hiding in their fridge. Tom notices his body but doesn't really care about it and just grabs the soda near him and closes the fridge on him. Another big example would be in Fan Service where Edd and Tom celebrate their new dog while they both ignore Matt dying from an allergic reaction when exposed to the dog. In most cases, Edd seems to enjoy Matt's company while Tom merely tolerates him.
  • I Just Want to Be Beautiful: He's very much in love with himself and wants to always look good.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: One of his distinguishing features is his "formidable chin", as it's worded in the theme song.
  • Laughably Evil: Whenever he is Temporarily a Villain, such as in Matt Sucks.
  • Narcissist: He loves himself a little too much.
  • Not Himself: He's been zombified, turned into a vampire and possessed twice over the course of the show.
  • Plot Allergy: To dogs. And explosions. And seafood.
  • Redhead In Green: When wearing his overcoat.
  • Screw Yourself: He made an amateur porn movie called "Matt-On-Matt Action".
  • Statuesque Stunner: If the Saloonatics designs are canon, it would mean that Matt's the tallest of the group and he's also the self-proclaimed prettiest.
  • Temporarily a Villain:
    • Of the Zombeh Attack Trilogy, excluding Zombeh Nation.
    • He is also bitten by a vampire in Matt Sucks, and attempts to do the same to Edd and Tom.
    • He's also possessed by Kate at the beginning of Trick or Threat.
  • They Killed Kenny Again:
    • In Eddsworld Halloween Short, he's decapitated by a shotgun blast.
    • In Zombeh Attack , he gets bitten by a zombeh.
    • In Zombeh Attack III, he falls into a pot of scalding cheese fondue.
    • In Ruined, he falls to his death along with Tom, Tord and Edd (although Edd survived the fall) when a trapdoor opens beneath him.
    • In Eddsworld Halloween Special 2007, he dies of a heart attack.
    • In Matt Sucks, he explodes after being exposed to sunlight.
    • In Climate Change, he dies along with Tom and Edd when a massive tidal wave comes toward their house once again in the end.
    • In Fan Service, he succumbs to a fatal allergic reaction from the gang's new pug.
  • Too Dumb to Live: When playing hide & go seek he hid in the fridge, and appeared to be freezing to death and hallucinating living food.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In the later shorts. Explained in "The End: Part 1" as him suffering from self-inflicted amnesia.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: From 2013 onwards.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: His annoying personality made the demon quickly vacate.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice became considerably more high pitched in later episodes. The End Part 2 also plays with this, and brings his voice down again.

    Tord 

Tord/The Red Leader

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eddsworld__tord_by_scaredyash006-d45gw3c_860.png

Tord was the fourth main character in the show. A Norwegian trigger-happy gun nut wearing a red hoodie, he was Put on a Bus after the episode "Moving Targets", because Tord the real person wanted to start his own career (this didn't go well).

Voiced by: Tord Larsson (2005 - 2008), Alexander L'Abbe (2005), Jamie Spicer-Lewis (2016)

  • Affably Evil: While he isn't evil (or doesn't show it until The End), he is easily the most violent member of the gang.
  • Back for the Finale: Or at least, that of the Eddsworld Legacy-produced episodes - he returns in the "The End" two-parter.
  • Badass Longcoat: Sported a black one in earlier episodes and wears a blue military coat in his wanted poster.
  • Berserk Button:
    • The song "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows" is the bane of his existence. The episode "Hello Hellhole" reveals that being forced to listen to it on a loop is his personal Hell, while "Ruined" implies that he considers it a Fate Worse than Death.
    • In The End (Part 2), Tord decks Matt so hard in the face that he goes flying across the room over almost pressing a button. He probably would have gone further had Edd not stepped in to calm him down. Though said button was also the one that would've exposed his Giant Robot...
  • Big Bad: He's this for The End, and ultimately the Eddsworld Legacy arc, being the most dangerous threat the gang faces.
  • The Bus Came Back: In a handful of comics and episodes (such as Fun Dead and PowerEdd, he shows up as a background cameo, and may be the "Red Leader" who Future Tom calls in WTFuture. He finally returns in a major role in The End.
  • The Cameo: After his departure he's been referenced in most episodes. His voice actor also returned briefly in "WTFuture" to re-record a line from "Zombeh Attack (2005)".
  • Covert Pervert: "Behind the Scenes" reveals that he has a hentai addiction. Though he insists it's not an addiction, he quickly contradicts himself. What makes it covert is that it's not brought up much on the show (though "The End" alludes to it by revealing his Secret Lab has a poster of a bikini-clad anime girl standing on a beach with a tentacle emerging from the sea behind her).
    Tord: I will always miss my 90 gigabites of hentai. It's not gone, I just haven't looked at it for three hours.
  • Darth Vader Clone: According to Word of God, Red Leader would've at least visually been this.
  • Evil Former Friend: When he returns in The End, he intends to retrieve a super weapon (a giant mecha) and kill his old friends. This is assuming he wasn't Evil All Along.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He's a wanted criminal come The End and becomes the gang's enemy.
  • False Friend: He's shown to be this for Edd and Matt in The End.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Becomes this in The End.
  • Final Boss: He is the final antagonist of the original era of Eddsworld.
  • Foreshadowing: His return and affiliation with the "Red Army" was foreshadowed all the way back in "The Snogre" and then in "Fun Dead".
  • Gadgeteer Genius: In The End, we learn that he's this, having invented portable retractable sofas, a memory-eraser gun, an entire secret lab in his bedroom and a giant robot.
  • Gun Nut: Has an unhealthy obsession with guns and firepower. And even giant robots.
  • He's Back: He's back with the gang in The End, but not for any benevolent reasons....
  • Horned Hairdo: More prominently so in The End, presumably to emphasize the fact that he's now a villain.
  • Horns of Villainy: The unused designs for his Red Leader outfit featured a mask with horns on it. Hilariously, the horns matched his hair.
  • Humongous Mecha: Serves as his superweapon in The End. He reunited with the gang solely to reclaim it, and he intends to Take Over the World with it.
  • Misplaced Accent: Subverted in that Tord's original actor played him with a typical Norwegian accent. However, his new voice actor in The End plays it with a slight Russian accent.
  • Norse by Norsewest: Averted. He isn't portrayed as a stereotypical Scandinavian: he's ginger-ish, average looking, and pretty damn violent.
  • Obviously Evil: He's reintroduced in The End Part 1 with his Slasher Smiling face shrouded in shadow and uttering his Wham Line in a sinister tone. The audience can quickly tell that he's up to no good.
  • Odd Name Out: Edd, Matt and Tom are all very common names in the Anglosphere, but "Tord" is likely to sound much more unusual and exotic to English-speakers' ears. Subverted in that it's actually a very common name in his native Norway.
  • Put on a Bus: He drives off at the start of 25 ft. Under the Seat.
  • The Quiet One: Even back when he was a main character, Tord didn't talk much. Allegedly, this was a trait of his real life counterpart. Averted when he returns, wherein he's much more talkative.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Tord's main color scheme is a red hoodie and black pants, he is the most violent of the four, and he is revealed to be overtly evil in The End.
  • Same Character, but Different: In his previous appearances, Tord was a quiet but also very violent individual who loved hentai. In "The End", he's depicted as a talkative Deadpan Snarker who's also a cold, cunning megalomaniac.
  • Satanic Archetype: When he returns in The End, his hair spikes have been made more prominent, giving him the appearance of having demonic horns, and his red color scheme gives him a rather demonic look. Fits well with his new attitude.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He's sometimes seen with a cigar.
  • Take Over the World: We find out in The End that he has a giant robot hidden inside Edd's house built to do this.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Like the rest of the gang, he dies quite a bit:
    • In "Zombeh Attack", he's eaten by a zombie.
    • In "Eddsworld Halloween Short 2005", he's sliced in half by Matt.
    • In "Zombeh Attack 2", he ascends to Heaven after Edd frees his soul from his zombification.
    • In "Zombeh Nation", he and the others are gunned down by a helicopter.
    • In "Zombeh Attack 3", his ghost is shot by Tom.
    • In "Ruined", he falls to his death along with Tom, Matt and Edd (although Edd survived the fall) when a trapdoor opens beneath him.
    • In "Eddsworld Halloween Special 2007", he's stabbed with a wooden stake by the man wearing the hockey mask.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Easily the most violent of the four. As of The End, he's revealed as the one member of the crew who's outright evil.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Tord wasn't exactly nice to begin with, but The End has him deliberately coerce Tom into leaving while he takes his place, plotting to Take Over the World with a Humongous Mecha. Then again, it's implied he was always this way. (Or at least since after "Moving Targets.)
  • Trigger Happy: Oh, that's scratching the surface...
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: After crashing his giant robot, Tord is last seen watching the gang from afar whilst getting his injuries patched up by Paul and Patryck, before leaving.
  • Walking Spoiler: The fact that he's in "The End" is the least spoilery thing about him in it.
  • With Friends Like These...: He didn't get on well with Tom. And when he returns, we find out he still doesn't.

    Other Characters 

Ringo

Edd's cat who, naturally, lives with the boys.

Voiced by: N/A

  • Cats Are Mean: Averted, she's sweet as can be.
  • Character Outlives Actor: Downplayed as Ringo wasn't really an "actor", but the real life cat she was based on already passed away (presumably of old age) by the time the show became a big hit.
  • Cute Kitten: Edd adores her and for good reason.
  • Team Pet: She doesn't show up often, but she's this for Edd and his friends.

Zanta Claws

Evil zombie Santa Claus, appearing in three Christmas Specials.

Voiced by: Joshua Tomar

  • Back from the Dead: To destroy Christmas.
  • Bad Santa: Duh.
  • Big Bad: Of "Zanta Claws" and "Zanta Claws II", though Tom hijacks this role from him in "Zanta Claws III".
  • Enemy Mine: Briefly teams up with Edd, Matt and Santa to stop Tom in Zanta Claws III.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He's one of the biggest hams in the whole show and he's also a villain.
  • The Grinch: The reason he hates Christmas is because he died and Santa took his place.
  • Large Ham: One of the biggest ones in the show, often screaming his lines or putting heavy emphasis on certain words.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Well, he's a Zombie Santa Claus.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He's punched into the stratosphere and presumed dead in his first appearance, then crushed by a chandelier in his second appearance. Given that he's a zombie, we can assume that he's simply incapable of being killed normally.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: What happened to him when Tord blew up the house he buried himself under?

Paul

A Dutch guy with large eyebrows and a lot of jobs.

Voiced by: Paul ter Voorde

  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His eyebrows are essentially a massive pair of rectangles.
  • Evil All Along: "The End" reveals that he and Patryck were working for Tord the whole time. Though "The Snogre" and "Fun Dead" kinda foreshadowed this.
  • Eye Scream: An offscreen case. In "The End", one of his eyes is covered up by bandages and there's a scar peeking out from underneath said bandages. This is assumed to be a result of him being attacked by zombies in "Fun Dead".
  • Jerkass: His Establishing Character Moment is responding to a fellow soldier's concern by telling him that no one cares.
  • Living Prop: Rarely has any bearings on the actual plot of any episode and tends to make one-scene appearances. Even when he's not there in the flesh, there are other species that share his eyebrows, as seen in 25ft Under The Seat and Space Face.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: An army guy, a power plant worker, an astronaut, a co-pilot, etc. The army guy role is his most frequent one, though.
  • Perma-Stubble: He's got some scruff, but never a full beard.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He's rarely seen smiling. His usual expression is either one of boredom or anger.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Always seen with a cigarette.
  • Stopped Caring: "That's just the sound of NO ONE CARING!"
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The Wise Guy to Patryck's Straight Man, at least according to "The Snogre".
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Patryck, as of 'The End.
  • What, Exactly, Is His Job?: He holds several throughout the series, though ultimately, he serves as a soldier of the "Red Army".

Hellucard

A random guy who likes to say "hi" to Edd.

Voiced by: Dominic Charbonneau

  • Canada, Eh?: He's from Canada, like his voice actor.
  • Catchphrase: "Hey Edd!" though due to his accent it sounds like "'Ey Head!", which is frequently lampshaded.
  • Distaff Counterpart: A female version of him gets a cameo in "Mirror Mirror".
  • The Ditz: He seems pretty slow on the uptake, as shown in "Spares" when he obliviously greets a slew of Edd clones (including one who's completely naked for no adequately explained reason) without noticing anything is amiss. He does it again in "WTFuture", when he greets Edd the first time, then greets Future Edd without noticing any problems...which gets him killed.
  • Five-Second Foreshadowing: The present-day gang is hiding in a diner to hide from Future Edd. Present-day Edd then hears a faint "Hey Edd!" come from outside, just before Hellucard is thrown through the diner's doors by Future Edd.
  • Flat Character: Kind of to be expected, seeing as he exists mainly as a living Running Gag.
  • Nice Guy: He's always offering a friendly greeting.
  • Perky Goth: Probably, seeing as his most frequently seen outfit is a black shirt with a skull on it.
  • Running Gag: He's a living one.
  • Running Gagged: Kind of. Hellucard still appears, but in the animations he hasn't said a word since WTFuture, with his most recent appearances as of this writing featuring him holding up a sign with his Catchphrase on it instead of saying it out loud. This is likely due to a certain...controversy regarding his voice actor.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He's killed by Future Edd in "WTFuture", returns in "Space Face" only to be killed by Paul, then returns as a zombie in "Fun Dead". Considering the fact that he later returned, alive and well, in a comic, we can assume this trope is in play.

Future Edd

A future version of Edd, having travelled time to kill himself and not witness Cola being outlawed.

Voiced by: Edd Gould

Future Tom and Future Matt

Future versions of Tom and Matt, who came to the past to stop Future Edd from killing his past self.

Voiced by Thomas Ridgewell and Matt Hargreaves

  • Ambiguously Evil: They're apparently affiliated with Red Leader (implied and later confirmed to be Future Tord) and got their time machine from him. However, it's implied that Red Leader also gave Future Edd his time machine and the two of them entered the past to stop Future Edd from doing something evil himself (killing his past self for a selfish reason and potentially ruining the future). It's not clear if this means Tord ends up having a Heel–Face Turn in the future or if the other guys simply decided to join him themselves.
  • Cyborg: Future Matt has a mechanical eye and metallic chin, though Future Edd messing up the past causes him to lose these.
  • Hero Antagonist: From Future Edd's perspective, at least; they're there to stop him from killing his past self and potentially destroying the future.
  • Narcissist: Showing that some things never change, Future Matt is this. He gets really mad when Future Edd's time travel shenanigans causes him to gain a bad comb over.
  • Noodle Incident: While Tom's visor comes from the fact that he got cancer after taking a laser to the face to save Santa Claus, we never find out why Matt had a metallic implant in his chin and a mechanical eye.
  • One-Way Visor: Future Tom wears one that has green digitized pupils. Apparently, it has something to do with him having cancer.
  • Ret Gone: Played for laughs; Future Matt's cybernetic implants and some of his hair suffer this fate due to Future Edd's time travel shenanigans.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Like Future Edd, we are never told of their fates after Present Matt goes back in time and changes everything. They may have been Ret Goned out of existence, but it's not clear.

Kim

A hot girl who moves in next door to the boys, prompting Edd and Tord to fight for her affections.

Voiced by: Kira Buckland

  • Animesque: Drawn in this style, presumably to emphasize her attractiveness, though this comes with the consequence that she clashes heavily with the other characters (except Katya).
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • The Bus Came Back: She and Katya appear in "Zombeh Attack 2" (as zombies) and in "The End Part 2" during Tom's house-hunting montage. The room they rent out to him seems totally perfect...until he discovers that they're right next door to an airport.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Poor Edd and Tord learn the hard way that they never stood a chance with her to begin with.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Revealed to be the case when her girlfriend shows up. Edd and Tord are heartbroken...until they remember that Girl-on-Girl Is Hot...
  • Non-Standard Character Design: She's drawn in an anime style (Word of God says she was drawn by Tord rather than Edd, and was initially a hentai character), resulting in this.
  • Official Couple: With Katya.
  • Satellite Love Interest: A justified example; it's made clear that Edd and Tord are only into her because she's hot and they never really get any insight on her personality...and as such, neither do the viewers. She's visibly annoyed when she watches them get into a fist fight over her at the end.

Katya

Another hot girl who moves in next door to the boys.

Voiced by Kira Buckland

Evil Director Man

A director who clones the main four in Spares.

  • Affably Evil: Amazingly.
  • Bad Boss: Often blames Larry for his own shortcomings.
  • The Bus Came Back: He and Larry get a cameo in The End Part 2, when Tom is going house hunting. They sic rabid dogs on him.
  • The Cameo: Shows up again in Zanta Claws III working for Zanta. Credited as "Evil Director Man".
  • The Danza: Named - sort of - after his voice actor.
  • Evil Sounds Raspy: Has a deep, scratchy voice. This is actually a natural trait of his voice actor (the raspiness, not the evil).
  • Heel–Face Turn: After the clone massacre.
  • Me's a Crowd: Clones the main cast so his film is successful.
  • Never My Fault: When the clones start leaving after the film is over, he blames Larry for "not thinking the plan through at all", despite the Director himself being the one who came up with the plan.
  • No Name Given: Averted, it's shown in the credits of his film.

Larry

Evil Director's assistant in Spares.

Voiced by: Edd Gould

The Clones

The clones of the gang, created by the Evil Director in a bit to get his movies to earn big bucks.

Voiced by: Edd Gould, Thomas Ridgewell, Tord Larsson and Matt Hargreaves

  • Ambiguous Situation: Is the surviving Matt clone still around? Matt did make that "Matt on Matt Action" DVD, after all...
  • Ax-Crazy: The Tord clones (or maybe one particular Tord clone) whips out his guns constantly. Additionally, all the clones burn down an arcade and later try to kill the original Edd for killing one of their Edds.
  • Body Horror: A few of the "reject" clones. One is Matt with a photorealistic head, one is a Tom/Tord fusion, another is a visibly troubled amalgamation of all four of the boys referred to by the fandom as "Tomatoredd", etc.
  • Clone Degeneration: All of them are even crazier and dumber than the originals.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: On both the giving and receiving end of this trope; They burn down an arcade for giving them a lame prize, and Edd kills one of them for taking his last cola.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Probably the case, seeing as they're all furious when Edd kills one of their Edds.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: One Tom clone expresses a desire to go shoe and kitten shopping. Subverted in that the other clones throw him in the trash for it.
  • Kill 'Em All: The boys kill all of them except a single Matt clone.
  • Naked People Are Funny: One of Edd's clones appears to be naked, and his confused expression implies that even he doesn't know why.
  • Shout-Out: One of the Matt clones is dressed like Waldo from Where's Waldo?.
  • Slasher Smile: They all tend to do this, most notably after they destroy the arcade and when they attack Edd for killing one of them.
  • Sole Survivor: One Matt clone is left alive so he can replace the original Tom.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: Tomatoredd has one. Considering the state he's in, this is probably justified.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We're never told what happened to the rejected clones after the regular clones are massacred.
  • Zerg Rush: There's four million of them and they run around wreaking havoc.

Commander Bai's Crew

A crew of aliens who abducted the trio to use Matt's vanity to fuel their ship.

Commander Bai voiced by Jamie Spicer-Lewis
Pilot voiced by Eddie Bowley

  • Aliens Speaking English
  • Big Bad: Of Space Face, ultimately.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: One of the aliens has one, drawn exactly as Paul's.
  • The Bus Came Back: They return in The End Part 1, during the montage where the boys are recreating old memories to include Tord. Apparently, Commander Bai and his crew have been stranded on a small moon for a while and hitchhiking for a ride home.
  • Area 51: Has a sign saying "Sector 51".
  • Face–Heel Turn: After the gang accidentally trash their ship, Bai drops his cheerful demeanour.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Bai tries to space the crew, but ends up spacing himself and his mates instead.

Legacy Donators

People who donated enough money during the Eddsworld Kickstarter campaign.

Katey "Red" Harding note  voiced by Jenny Bingham
Patryck the Co-Pilot voiced by Patryk Dudulewicz

  • As Himself: Subverted; Katey, for technical reasons, is voiced by Jenny Bingham, Tom's then-girlfriend. Played straight with Patryck.
  • Author Avatar: Of sorts. Katey Harding drew a few guest comics.
  • Butt-Monkey: All of them suffered some horrible fates: got zombehfied, got left on another planet, burnt by a jet engine, crashed a plane or dated Matt. Patryck does survive the plane crash, though.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Patryck, along with Paul, causes the zombie apocalypse.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: According to "The Snogre", at least, Patryck is the Straight Man to Paul's Wise Guy.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Patryck, with Paul.

Eduardo/Numero Uno, Mark and Jon

The gang's neighbors and rivals.

Eduardo voiced by: Chris O'Neill (2010 - 2011) and Brock Baker (2014 onwards)
Jon voiced by: Eddie Bowley
Mark voiced by: Ben Rudman.

  • Adorkable: Jon.
  • Affably Evil: Jon. He's probably the only one who doesn't outright despise Edd and the others.
  • Alpha Bitch: Eduardo's a Rare Male Example.
  • Big Bad: Eduardo serves as the villain of PowerEdd.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Jon; being the counterpart for Tom.
  • The Bully: They're all supposed to be this to our heroes, though only Eduardo is really malicious enough to qualify.
  • Butt-Monkey: Jon is always being pushed around by Eduardo.
  • The Cameo:
    • Tord's counterpart, Todd is very briefly shown in Power Edd watching TV with Jon and Mark. All that can be seen of him is his sleeve.
    • Mark makes multiple cameos in "Fun Dead" as well as one in one of TomSka's "Crash Zoom" comics.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In Power Edd, it's revealed the reason Eduardo hates Edd so much is because in pre-school, Edd beat Eduardo in a drawing competition and Edd made fun of him for being in second place. Yes, that is the reason. Even Edd acknowledges this is a dumb reason and states his drawing sucked anyway. Admittedly Eduardo was bullied pretty hard for getting second place.
  • Die Laughing: Jon dies making a joke in The End (Part 2).
    Eduardo: Say something, you idiot!
    Jon: (weakly) S-something. Hehe-heh-heheheh...
  • Enemy Mine: In Hammer and Fail 2, though not for very long
  • Evil Counterpart: Not evil per se, but mean enough to qualify.
  • The Faceless: Todd, Tord's counterpart, "appeared" in "PowerEdd"..."appeared" as in "a tiny bit of his arm was visible for a few seconds". His actual appearance is still unknown, and we only know he even exists because Tom and Eddie confirmed his existence.
  • Flat Character: Mark, who typically just hangs around the other two and doesn't get as many lines as Eduardo and Jon do. Todd even more so, since he's barely even seen.
  • Jerkass: Eduardo is the most prominent of the trio. But Mark appears to be one as well, and Jon just follows the other two.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
  • Killed Off for Real: Jon dies thanks to a missile from Tord's Humongous Mecha in "The End (Part 2)".
  • Minion with an F in Evil: Jon constantly fails at bugging the gang.
  • Official Couple: Eduardo with Laurel of all people. It's not clear if her death is why she's considered his "ex-girlfriend" or if she broke up with him before her death.

Sgt. "Hilary" Hilarson

A senior drill instructor in the British Army. Taught Edd and the gang when they enlisted in Moving Targets.

Laurel

A woman who helps the gang make a movie in the episode "Movie Makers"

Voiced By: Laurel Deering

Shoe

A shoe that was apparently left by Tord when he moved out. He acts as the gang's casting director when Tom starts brainstorming for their movie.

Voiced by: N/A

  • Ambiguously Evil: He mostly just seems like a jerk until he murders Laurel to have a threesome with her shoes.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: He's a shoe that is apparently sentient and able to move on his own. However, he can't talk (or at least, can't talk audibly).
  • Companion Cube: To the boys, though apparently mostly to Tom.
  • Jerkass: He attacked Matt for questioning Tom, was rude to the actors who auditioned for him, only hired Laurel because her shoes are cute and kills her so that he can have a threesome with said shoes.
  • Remember the New Guy?: He's treated like he's been around the whole time despite only appearing in MovieMakers. Even more jarringly, he's never seen again afterward.
  • A Threesome Is Hot: Parodied—he hired Laurel as the lead actor in the boys' movie solely because he was lusting after her pink shoes and later has a threesome with them after killing their wearer.
  • Silent Snarker: Though everyone responds as if he's spoken out loud.

Diwi

An actor who auditioned for the guys' movie in "MovieMakers".

Voiced by: Christopher Diewald

  • Break the Cutie: Played for Laughs; after Shoe insults him, he runs off in tears and calls him a "soulless monster".
  • The Cameo: He reappears in The End Part 2, renting a room to Tom, and also appears as a little kid in Edd's flashback in "PowerEdd".
  • Dumb Blonde: His Establishing Character Moment is obliviously butchering his "Romeo and Juliet" monologue during his audition and he later rents a room to Tom that he claims is "super spacious" when it's actually a closet.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: His irises are more prominent than those of the other characters and he's a ditzy Nice Guy.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: He's one of the few characters in the show to actually have coloured irises as opposed to just having black pupils.

Ell, Tamara, Matilda and Tori

Female versions of the boys from a parallel dimension in a magic mirror Matt bought. Ell (female Edd), Tamara (female Tom) and Matilda (female Matt) all take center stage in "Mirror, Mirror", while Tori (female Tord) cameos in "Fun Dead".

Voiced by: Vicky Gould (Ell), Alice Ann Stacey (Matilda), Chloe Dungate (Tamara), N/A (Tori)

  • The Cameo: Tori cameos as a zombie in "Fun Dead". She's easy to miss, but Word of God confirms that it's her. She also appears as a photograph in "Mirror Mirror".
  • Cat Smile: Ell makes one when she asks Dazeem if she can call him "Daisy".
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Like their male counterparts, Ell's associated with green, Tamara with blue and Matilda with purple and Tori with red. Additionally, Matilda has a green overcoat like Matt and Tori has a black coat over her red hoodie like Tord used to.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To the main boys.
  • The Ditz: Unsurprisingly, Matilda is this.
  • Gender-Bent Alternate Universe: All of them live in another universe where the cast are all the opposite gender.
  • Hair Decorations: Matilda wears a hairband with a bow.
  • The Hecate Sisters: Matilda, being the ditzy, energetic one, is the Maiden; Ell, being the one who keeps her cool under pressure, is the Mother; and Tamara, snarky and cynical, is the Crone.
  • Only Sane Woman: In their premiere episode, Ell is the only one who keeps her cool and comes up with an actual solution when they're being attacked by Dazeem.
  • Put on a Bus: Possibly, seeing as the only way the boys could interact with them (the titular mirror) is damaged at the end of their first episode.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Both Ell and Tamara. Tamara's sticks upward, presumably to resemble Tom's spiky hair.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cola for Ell, to the surprise of no one.
  • Women Are Wiser: Averted. The girls are every bit as wacky as their male counterparts.

Dazeem

An evil demon ghost that was trapped in a cursed box Tamara bought (for free).

Voiced by: Tim Hautekiet

  • Big Bad: Of "Mirror Mirror", or at least, he tries to be.
  • Fog Feet: Fitting, seeing as he's a genie.
  • Killed Off for Real: Ell kills him by throwing her magic sword at him.
  • Our Genies Are Different: He's depicted as an evil spirit that doesn't grant wishes, but rather causes chaos and destruction.
  • Reality Warper: Shown off when he turns objects into different objects when the girls try to fight him.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was trapped in a box for thousands of years.

Detective Edward Gold, Sheriff Thompson and Prince Matthew

Three historical figures from the old west town of Spitbucket USA. Detective Gold came looking for the kidnapped Prince Matthew, with help from Sheriff Thompson.

Voiced by: Tim Hautekiet, Tom Ridgewell and Matt Hargreaves

  • Adorkable: Edward Gold. Unsurprisingly, seeing as he's apparently Edd's ancestor.
  • The Alcoholic: Sheriff Thompson, who goes into a Heroic BSoD when he discovered that the bandits stole all the whiskey and refuses to touch cola when he's informed that it's not alcoholic. He also tends to drink before he fires his gun, because, in his words, "everybody needs a little something".
  • Chick Magnet: Prince Matthew, who manages to attract Bratty and Catty.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sheriff Thompson. Must run in Tom's family.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Sheriff Thompson has one, alluding to Tom's black eye sockets.
  • Guile Hero: Prince Matthew, oddly enough, who comes up with a surprisingly clever plan to escape by "teaching" Juan (one of the bandits) how to be more like a prince in an effort to distract him long enough to grab the keys to his cage.
  • I Call It "Vera": Discussed and parodied. Sheriff Thompson tells Edward that he can't fire off his gun without giving it a name first and then admonishes him for giving it a man's name ("Brian"). Edward asks Sheriff Thompson what he calls his, and he responds by saying he calls it "Gun".
  • Mr. Fanservice: Prince Matthew, who is depicted in a photograph posing with his shirt open and winking with a rose in his teeth. He also poses provocatively in an attempt to convince the bandits to set him free (to no avail).
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently, Sheriff Thompson wanted (and possibly tried) to nail down all the nails in Spitbucket to keep them from being stolen. Everyone, somewhat understandably, called him crazy for it, but he feels like he's been vindicated due to the fact that the nails end up getting stolen later.
  • Posthumous Character: Most likely, seeing as all of them lived a hundred years before our heroes.
  • Power-Up Food: Cola becomes this for Edward when he drinks it for the first time.
  • The Sheriff: Sheriff Thompson, obviously.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Edward. Lampshaded when he points out that crime is a lot more brutal in the States than in England.
