Our Host

    The Savant 

Played by Joey Graceffa

Everybody runs, but who will Escape The Night?
Click here to see his season 2 appearance. 

A cursed YouTuber who, after "inheriting" an evil house, is forever forced to throw parties in various time periods where guests meet terrible fates one after the other, whether he likes it or not.

Graceffa is unique for a reality TV show host, in that he solves puzzles with the contestants, with the "NPC" assist character acting as a more traditional host for the contestants. Regardless, he is featured across all seasons with the title "The Savant" as the show is created by him and hosted on his youtube channel.

  • Action Survivor: Let us all admit that even if you hate him, he's tough enough to survive this thing…with an unbroken record...somewhat. He doesn't have THAT much Plot Armour, if any at all.
    • Doubles as Badass Gay. He does ten pull-ups while wearing heavy armour in Season 4 Episode 4. You gotta give him kudos for that.
  • Adorkable: Shows traces of this, despite everything.
    • Such as this line in Season 3 Episode 1:
    "Oh, I want the pony. I want the big pony. If I get it, can I get the big pony, please?"
  • Ambiguously Evil: Even according to Film Theory's canon-supported video.
  • Anti-Villain / Anti-Hero: Sure, he's IS nice guy as he genuinely want's everyone to get out of each season alive (as much as it is virtually impossible considering the type of show he's in...), and him "inheriting" the house and inviting the guest's it as a seeming innocent party IS good intentions in his eyes, but regardless, he still sent a lot of innocent people to their deaths by acting as a (unwitting) pawn for the Society Against Evil.
    • Plus with him taking the deed at the end of season one resulted in him absorbing some of the evil essentially doomed him to repeat the process indefinitely.
  • The Atoner: As of the end of Season 3, and as we know, the entirety of Season 4. Good thing too - he's enough of a Base-Breaker without this part.
  • Back from the Dead: Got stabbed by The Sorceress in the season 2 finale and put in a coffin by winners Tyler and Andrea, but the crown was just put head before, resurrecting him. Sorry Joey, but you won't escape the horrors THAT easily!
  • Base-Breaking Character: Part of the fandom is sympathetic to him, the rest mostly believes that he has been corrupted and will be/is outright evil.
  • Blood Oath: Joey signs a Life-Binding Contract at the beginning of Season 3 Episode 1, Binding his life to Everlock. It lasts for the entirety of the season.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: At the beginning of Season 2, the Sorceress does this to him to invite his friends. In Episode 4, he puts on the Helm of Obedience voluntarily for a short period of time.
  • Cassandra Truth: In Season 3 Episode 5, where he reveals being Back from the Dead and all that snazzy stuff. Zigzagged because some clearly believe him but Colleen, especially, does not, which then dissolved into a minor conflict by the next episode.
  • Character Development: The only one who gets major development, mainly because he's in all the seasons. He started out fine, but as he reached a Cynicsm Catalyst early on, his Chronic Backstabbing Disorder grew, reaching its peak in Seasons 2 and 3. In Season 4, however, he became The Atoner and even made multiple attempts at Heroic Sacrifice, though downplayed.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Has a tendency of betraying pretty much every friend he has.
  • Cold Equation: Invoked in Season 3 - it took him a bloodbath of over two dozen deaths in total, good and bad alike, to confirm his revival. Ten of them were good guys. Ouch.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Why must it be him, of all people? Why does everything happen to him?
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Justine's death devastated him. The next episode? He committed murder.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Shows signs of this.
    In response to the Evil Sorceress stating that all the YouTubers would die, and that it was her "favorite part", in Season 2 Episode 10 (on Confession Cam, thankfully): Yeah, that's not my favorite part!
    In response to Bretman asking "How big are these eyeballs?" in Season 4 Episode 9: Probably the size of an eyeball?
  • Designated Monkey: Yep, it's always him.
  • Dirty Coward: Often kills people just to save his own skin, or people who were suspicious of him like GloZell and Colleen.
  • Distressed Dude: Is essentially this during Season 2, Episode 1.
  • Doomed Contrarian: People who openly voice their suspicions about him tend to end up getting killed, one way or another. Lampshaded on MatPat's theory on him.
  • Drama Queen: You know this is the case when Tyler gets serious while he still flounders around when facing foods possibly made from human body parts.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Sure he's Camp Gay in real life, but even Joey gets pissed when Lele and Eva are solely obsessed with Colin.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Gay?: Although Graceffa in real life is Camp Gay, the show tones his homosexuality way down.
  • Expy: Of Giles from Whodunnit. Both are men cursed to host deadly games for the rest of their lives. Hell, Joey even had grey hair in Season 1!
  • Game Show Host: Technically, though he was entirely involved in the proceedings of it as a participant in all seasons.
  • Here We Go Again!: Says this word for word on Confession Cam in Season 3 Episode 1.
  • Heroic BSoD: After Justine's death in Season 1, Episode 3.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Despite being known for suffering from rather severe Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, especially in Seasons 2 and 3, he does have his moments, though generally downplayed.
    • During various points in each season, he goes along with the plan to vote himself into the final challenges of episodes.
    • Season 4 Episode 6: Making a Sadistic Choice (see below), he chose to let his name go in the voting pile in place of his friends. Still downplayed, though, as he didn't get put in, but it's the thought that counts.
    • Season 4 Episode 7: Upon seeing Alex be voted into his third challenge of the season, he volunteered in the former's place to risk his own damn life. That's a f**k ton of Character Development right there. Hit us straight in the feels and conscience.
  • His Story Repeats Itself: From Season 2 and beyond.
  • Improvised Weapon: In Season 3 Episode 7, he threw a pillow/cushion at Willie when the latter entered the Divine Lounge and fishhooked Safiya. He missed by a long shot, but it's the thought that counts.
  • "I Can't Look!" Gesture: Subverted. He attempts to cover his eyes with his arm at Manny's death in Season 3 Episode 9.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Had to take the deed so that someone with fewer moral scruples didn't.
  • Jacob Marley Apparel: Not exactly a ghost, but he did show up at the church in the In-Between in Victorian era clothing...
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a drama llama and can be absolutely ruthless - a large chunk of the fandom only sees this - but he really does wanna help...most of the time.
  • The Kingslayer: He killed Dorian, King of the Vampires in Season 2 Episode 2.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: If he didn't take the deed, he wouldn't have been "corrupted" by the evil and Season 2 would likely not happen. And the seasons afterward would have been avoided.
    • Also in Season 4 - had he not tried to revive everyone, the entire museum wouldn't have been unleashed and things wouldn't have gone to Hell. He even lampshades this in Episode 1.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction on Twitter to Colleen’s poster for Season 4, and its caption - Hell hath no fury like a woman…murdered by her best friends.
    Joey: oh fuck
  • Only Sane Man: Of Team Mountaintop, at the very start. While Eva and GloZell were busy accusing him of being responsible for Shane's poisoning, using conspiracy theories as "reasons", such as trying to steal Shane's followers and YouTube account, he used logical seasonings to try to prove his (relative) innocence.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Justine. Initially.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Season 4.
  • Sadistic Choice: Has to choose between letting his or his friends' name(s) go in the voting pile to free them in Season 4 Episode 6 - to be a hero or a coward. He chose the former, despite initial thoughts. Doubles as a Downplayed Heroic Sacrifice.
  • The Smart Guy: Not his primary role, but shows traces of this in Season 1 Episode 5 when he solved a puzzle that no one else could and was The Strategist for Season 2 Episode 5. He was officially Sorted into Ravenclaw (beyond the series), after all, even if fans tend to place him into Slytherin.
  • The Strategist: Not primarily so, but when he was picked as a captain for the Capture the Flag game in Season 2 Episode 5, opposing DeStorm, he ensured that Alex was picked last so that the other team could have him, "to start some drama". In case anyone newbie is wondering, Alex blames DeStorm for his girlfriend's death two episodes earlier.
    • Technically zigzagged because some of his actions indicate him as an absolute dumbass, aka Too Dumb to Live. note 
  • Teasing Creator: On a meta level, evidence being fans on Tumblr complaining about the teasers for Season 4.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With the Sorceress in Season 4. Justified because after all, she killed him at the end of Season 2.
  • Tempting Fate:
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He has become a massive jerk in season 2 compared to season 1. He shows no regret for anyone dying, and backstabs Liza just to save his own skin. It is downplayed a little in season 3 where his main motive is incredibly selfish but he does regret a lot of it at the end and seems to try to find a way to make things right.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He joins the Society Against Evil prior to Season 4, confirmed in a video with Ro mere days before the season premiere, though fans have suspected this since the first teaser came out.


Season 1 Guests

    The Renegade 

Played by Shane Dawson

I'm just one of those guys that doesn't tolerate any of that bullshit.

    The Journalist 

Played by Eva Gutowski

Are we allowed to look around?
Ultimately won Season 1 with Oli and returned to the modern world.
  • Bi the Way: She finds both Madison and Colin attractive.
  • Brainy Brunette: A genius with brown hair.
  • Broken Tears: Happens to her after Timothy shoots himself in the head.
  • Final Girl: Is the only female survivor in Season 1.
  • I Broke a Nail: Very much downplayed (she only pointed it out and didn't express explicit pain over it) in Episode 10.
  • "I Can't Look!" Gesture: When Tim shoots himself.
  • Nice Hat: Wears one during Season 1.
  • Only Sane Woman: While everyone was arguing about who killed Shane.
    Eva: Guys, what if it's not one of us and it was the maid?
    • In fact, her assumption would be the most likely candidate, or second-most likely, depending on one's views.
  • Russian Roulette: She goes into an elimination challenge with this as a basis. She survives.
  • The Smart Girl: Most likely the genius of the EtN cast.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Defied; While she was invited back to another party by a brainwashed Joey, she immediately burned the letter, while also calling it satanic.
    Eva, upon receiving the invitation in Season 2 Episode 1: *takes out lighter to burn invitation* Not today, Satan!

    The Jazz Singer 

Played by GloZell Green

I'm the Jazz Singer. Hit me one more time.
  • Blood from the Mouth: This happens when she dies.
  • Death Wail: Not quite a loved one, per se, but when Shane died, her screaming was practically Narm.
  • Doomed Contrarian: She went after Joey in Episode 4. Guess who died?
  • Large Ham: Even as she died.
  • Lack of Empathy: Her response to Joey falling into a Heroic BSoD after everyone bands together against his wishes to kill Justine is to claim he's faking it, verbally assault him without provocation, and ultimately vote him into another "two enter, one leaves" life-or-death competition and laugh about it. This heavily contributes to Joey deciding to kill her when he gets the opportunity.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Some fans think she crossed it when she accused Joey of ACTING sad when Justine was killed. Lady, they were super close friends!
  • Sassy Black Woman: Her hilarious and oftentimes snarky comments are what won the fans' hearts.
  • Undignified Death: As Tim so kindly pointed out, she twerk-died.

    The Big Game Hunter 

Played by Oli White

I'm always up for a challenge.
Ultimately won season 1 with Eva and returned to the modern world.
  • The Big Guy: Tends to do literal heavy lifting and smashing when it's needed.
  • Four-Man Band: The Butt-Monkey at first, but when it becomes a Comic Trio, he becomes the Only Sane Man.
  • Electric Torture: He went into the Death Challenge in Episode 9. He survived.
  • The Heart: Some believe that he is the first male cinnamon roll to enter the series.
  • Nice Guy: He's friendly, loyal and tries to keep the group together while they argue amongst themselves. He doesn't hold many grudges aside from Justine, which he immediately regrets and apologises to. He even tries to convince the others not to vote for her but he's shut down by GloZell. Joey and Matt, both for voting him into a challenge, but even then he's relatively cool about the whole thing.
  • Only Sane Man: Seen in Episode 1, and stayed that way ever since.
    Oli, trying to calm everyone down in Episode 1: C'mon, Shane is like, dying!
    • He was also one for Team Box, when he was teamed with Matt and Lele, who began their rivalry right before his eyes. Poor guy.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Tim's red.
  • Straight Man: To Tim.
  • Sudden Sequel Death Syndrome: Defied; While he was invited back to another party by Joey, he immediately ripped up the letter, before saying he will never go back to that place.
    Oli, after receiving an invitation in Season 2 Episode 1: *rips invitation apart* No, no, no! I am not going to another party by Joey! Last time, eight people died! Worst house party ever.

    The Gambler / The Adventurer (S4) 

Played by Justine Ezarik

I actually do like to gamble.

    The Fixer 

Played by Andrea Brooks

Maybe like a fixer type of girl.

    The Professor 

Played by Matt Haag

I am playing the professor.

    The Heiress 

Played by Sierra Furtado

The queen, like, heiress, rich, kind of a sassy one.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: According to this analysis, she's at least partially responsible for four deaths, the second-most out of all the contestants and won the Deadliest Cinnamon Roll award. Wow.
  • Comically Missing the Point: During one of Matt and Lele's arguments Matt says "Guess who's name I'm not going to write down?", he's obviously talking about Lele, who has just written Matts name down. Sierra turns around hopefully and says "Me?".
  • Cool Crown: A nice tiara.
  • The Cutie: Is an innocent, scared little bunny for most of her time on the show.
  • The Load: Never helps out the group but always criticises others. They finally begin to notice this in episode 6.
  • Rich Bitch: She's rude, lazy and has never worked for anything in her life. It shows.
  • The Quiet One: She doesn't speak up much.
  • Spoiled Brat: Always complaining and not very useful when it comes to.... anything.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Either this or a Spoiled Brat, you pick.
  • Straw Feminist: She tells the girls that they need to work together to kill off the men after three girls have died in a row, not only do both men going into the challenge survive, but Sierra herself was next on deaths list.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Considered this by some of the fandom.

    The Hustler 

Played by Lele Pons

I'm trying to basically steal money.

    The Mobster / The Con Man (S4) 

Played by Timothy DeLaGhetto

Just kind of a character that embodies my essence, you know?
  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Sierra and Lele but also pretty much every other female he comes across.
  • The Alcoholic: Frequently drinks from his own bottle in Episode 2 of Season 4.
  • Anything That Moves: Even the mermaid.
  • Armour-Piercing Question: He asks the group why everyone in the 1920s(does it again in season 4) loves puzzles so much. Everyone agrees in response that that's a good question and that they hate riddles.
  • Back from the Dead: Makes a triumphant return in Season 4!
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He comes across like this in season 4, where even Tana of all people is unsure wether Tim completely knows what he's doing. A fan theory says that Timothy was handling his revival by drinking a lot of alcohol(he was constantly seen drinking from a bottle) and was drunk while looking for clues. This does explain why he acts so weird and tired.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When he's not hitting on girls, he's making witty comments about whatever the group is doing.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Sure, he had no problem stealing Shane's wallet and burying Justine alive, but even he finds DeStorm a massive jerk at the end of episode 3. He even calls DeStorm evil after he mocks him for losing the challenge, before that, he calls him the devil.
    • To a lesser extent, but he says he only kills people for business. Not for pleasure.
  • Four-Man Band: The Pervert. Later becomes the Leader when the group turns into a Comic Trio. (Season 1)
  • Funny Background Event: He talks about stealing Shane's wallet. When everyone is inspecting Shane's body, if you look closely Tim can be seen taking Shane's wallet out of his pocket. Lampshaded during his segment during Season 1 Episode 11, with a replay of the shot, with emphasis on Tim taking the wallet.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Showcased especially during the challenge in episode 5 of season 1, where he starts attacking and shouting at the carnival spectators.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has no problem stealing wallets and killing people for business, but he quickly bonds with the other guests and is upset at almost all their deaths. It's implied he sacrificed himself for Eva and was the only one standing up for Matt after his breakdown.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He has two things on his mind, 1 stealing peoples wallets, and 2 flirting with every girl he comes across.
  • Meaningful Background Event: In season 4, he is seen drinking from a bottle very frequently and his mannerisms are a bit off.
  • Pet the Dog: The only person to not hate Matt, even after he accidentally killed Sierra, who Timothy had a crush on. During the death challenge, they remain friendly towards each other.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Andrea.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Season 4.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Timothy is Red and Matt is Blue. And to a lesser extent Andrea and Oli are blue and Tim Red.
  • Running Gag: Timothy keeps losing his wallets in Season 1. Also Tim thinks every (other) female they come across is hot.
    Tim, part of his Famous Last Words, in Season 4 Episode 3: And you stole my wallet!
  • Russian Roulette: It ends up being the cause of his death.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!!: Tries to do this in episode 4 with Sierra, but it fails.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: All of his badass and interesting traits are not visible in season 4, instead he becomes The Load for the group and seems to be more interested in hitting women then finding clues.
  • Villainous Friendship: He and DeStorm because they know each other before they died. They quickly bond and are the most villainous guests, but Timothy is a lot less of a jerk then DeStorm, and their friendship ends when they're put into a death challenge.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Despite having a girlfriend back at home, he considered Sierra, Lele and even Madison attractive…

Season 2 Guests

    The Explorer 

Played by Liza Koshy

  • Damsel in Distress: She is kidnapped in the first episode of season two, and basically becomes this for the episode.
  • Dead Person Conversation: Calls out to Joey at the end of Season 3 via the blue crystal. She tells him the guests can be revived, but they need his help.
  • Defiant to the End: The Collector told her not to fight against her spear after being stabbed at the beginning of Season 4 Episode 1, but she continues her struggle.
  • Genki Girl: She's energetic and fast, and a fan fave to boot.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Delivers many lighthearted moments in a show full of death.
  • Slashed Throat: The most likely cause of her death in Season 2 Episode 5.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Receives this treatment from the Collector at the beginning of Season 4 for not being in "her exhibit" (and likely communicating with her friend in the living world).

    The Outlaw 

Played by Jesse Wellens

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After realising he's in trouble he quickly begin to beg for the others to save him.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Considering he's an outlaw, it's pretty obvious. Doesn't help that he also seems more amused by the situation than scared. In reality, though, he's just The Prankster.
  • Asshole Victim: His short-lived betrayal of the group led to not many people missing him after he died.
  • Beard of Evil: Evil is quite a stretch, but he is an outlaw.
  • Blood Knight: In episode one, all he can think about is killing a vampire. In episode 2 he quickly takes out his gun for no good reason.
  • Chekhov's Gun: His handgun provided quite some drama in the beginning of Episode 4, which he had carried during earlier episodes and his intro.
  • Dirty Coward: He asks Alison if he should help her, but when the vampire starts to attack her, he quickly backs down and hides behind a curtain. He also begs the group to save him and seems absolutely terrified of Jorogumo.
  • Didn't Think This Through: He leaves the group with DeStorm but soon realises that this isn't a very smart idea. It costs him his life.
  • Eaten Alive: By Jorogumo, how he died in Episode 3.
  • The Gunslinger: Wields a nice handgun, though he never used it…in person.
  • Lust: Declared his Fatal Flaw by several members of the fandom. As they term it, he "thought with his libido instead of his brain".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although way less prominent then DeStorm, he acts like a jerk towards the group and when he's captured, no one really misses him. However, he has no problem working together with the group and actually regrets abandoning them. Then there's also him voting for Lauren.
  • Nice Hat: Has one but never wears it.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He leaves the group because he's done with saving people. Shortly afterwards he begs the group to save him.
  • Pet the Dog: He decides to vote for Alex instead of Lauren like Alex requested.
  • Red Shirt: Considered this by some of the fandom.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: After being the done with the whole 'saving someone' crap, he decides to leave the group.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Decides to leave the group with DeStorm, presumably for lack of action even though he knows that it’s dangerous considering that they just saw Alex get kidnapped and the entire place is full with evil. Even dumber that when he has been captured and finally realizes that he makes a mistake he starts to beg the group to save him. It doesn’t help him.
  • Villainous Friendship: With DeStorm. Well, as villainous as a YouTuber can be.

    The Thespian 

Played by Tyler Oakley

    The Mystic 

Played by Andrea Russett

  • Final Girl: As the name suggests, was one of the winners along with Tyler on the show's second season, and ultimately survived with him.
  • Ironic Nickname: She's a Mystic who fears ghosts and possessions. Lampshaded in Episode 12, behind the scenes, during her introductory segment.
  • Pragmatic Hero: She's definitely one, especially in comparison with her companions.
  • Shoot the Dog: When she smashed Tana's tablet in Episode 6, dooming the girl.

    The Novelist / The Aviator (S4) 

Played by Alex Wassabi

  • All Webbed Up: Happens in Season 2 Episode 3.
  • Arch-Enemy: DeStorm in Season 2. They nake up in Season 4.
  • Asian and Nerdy: The Smart Guy of the group, and has Asian blood.
  • Back from the Dead: Brought back for a second chance at life in Season 4!
  • Big Eater: In Season 2 Episode 5. In an episode full of Big Eaters with Sweet Teeth, he really stands out. He doesn't hesitate when offered hot cocoa by the episode's antagonist and even doubles back into a room to retrieve a candy bowl.
  • Butt-Monkey: Has it the roughest out of anyone in season 2.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Briefly, in Season 4. First the Arabic dancers, then Jezebel.
  • Dude In Distress: For a portion of Season 4 Episode 1. Also when he was captured in Season 2 Episode 3. And also in Season 4 Episode 6. Sounds like a recurring event now.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Season 4, especially when coupled with his final appearance on Confession Cam. Those bullets sure hit us in the torso too.
  • Flashback Echo: Type 5. When he continously misses on his slingshot shots in Episode 8 and lampshades on his Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy skills, a Flashback Cut to Episode 4 for when he misses his arrows on his target occurs.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Season 4 - has a nice pair, but we don't see him pull them down over his eyes for any practical usage.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Played for Laughs in Season 4 - when he claimed that he didn't trust Mortimer because he was slightly better looking than himself.
  • Heroic BSoD: After Lauren's death in Season 2 Episode 2.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: His Fatal Flaw in Season 4, through the thorough analysis. (I mean, dude, look where you're shooting! I thought you were The Smart Guy!) He even lampshades this.
  • Official Couple: With Lauren in Season 2. Sadly, her death put an end to their relationship.
  • Take Me Instead: Asks the YouTubers that want to vote for Lauren to vote for him instead in Season 2 Episode 2.
  • The Smart Guy: Seen as possibly the smartest of the group.
  • Sweet Tooth: In Season 2 Episode 5. In an episode full of Big Eaters with Sweet Teeth, he really stands out. He doesn't hesitate when offered hot cocoa by the episode's antagonist and even doubles back into a room to retrieve a candy bowl.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: He became a lot more cocky in season 4, he also wasn't as much of a team player as he used to be. Then there was his alliance with DeStorm and him trying to act like a villain. Thankfully, he says that he'll go back to being his usual self at the end of episode 4. The moment where he decided to go outside and try to help Tana and Gabbie with their challenge felt more like his season 2 self then anything else he's done so far.

    The Engineer 

Played by Lauren Riihimaki

    The Railroad Tycoon / The Enforcer (S4) 

Played by DeStorm Power

  • Aloof Ally: Has a tendency to work alone, and doesn't trust easily.
  • Arch-Enemy: With Alex, in Season 2. They make up in Season 4 Episode 3.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: In season 2 he was always bragging about how smart he was despite not showing much skills after episode 2. Season 4 takes it Up to Eleven but at least now he has the skills to show it.
  • Asshole Victim: Undoubtedly the most hated out by the audience out of all the guests due to his Jerkass tendencies. His elimination seemed to be more of a relief to the audience, considering his behavior for the episodes he was in.
  • Back from the Dead: See the above quote.
  • Bait-and-Switch: He appears to take all of Alex’s coins in Season 4 Episode 3, then proceeds to switch out their coin pouches for one another, dooming himself to the challenge that episode.
  • Beard of Evil: Yup.
  • Black Guy Dies First: Defied after he survived the first elimination challenge of his first season. He's familiar with the trope considering the annoyed reaction he has when Jesse brings up that he'll probably be the first to die.
  • Blatant Lies: After he encourages the vampires to kill Lauren, he tells the group that he did everything to save her.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In Season 2 episode 3 he says that Alex looked sad and disappointed to see him alive. He then does an impression of Alex before turning to the camera, saying that he's still alive.
  • The Comically Serious: In season 4, his evil side is toned down and more played for laughs than for drama.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: His role in Season 2, though not necessarily corrupt.
  • Face Death with Dignity: He's the only YouTuber that didn't die screaming, pleading or looking like he was in pain - especially emphasized with his final confession. This is one of his few redeeming traits in the fandom, even though he's still at the top of the Most Hated Character List of half the fandom.
  • The Friend No One Likes: Everyone admits to hate him except for Jesse and Gabbie. Season 2, that is. Though Colleen and Joey held reservations against him in Season 4, he was more likeable in that season.
  • Hate Sink: Especially in Season 2 Episode 4, where everything coming out of his mouth is just rude towards the other members of the group.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Does this in Season 4 Episode 4, in a dramatic contrast to his actions in his debut season.
  • Insufferable Genius: He says he has a high IQ, whether this is true is debatable but he's certainly insufferable. (Season 4 shows that he is pretty intelligent, though.)
  • Irony: In Season 2 Episode 4, he was chosen to be the captain for the Confederate team for Capture the Flag even though he's black.
  • Jerkass: Most prominent in Season 2 Episode 4.
  • Nice Hat: A black top hat, which he ditched by the end of Season 2 Episode 3. Shame, really.
    • As the Enforcer, he had a nice cap too.
  • Pride: His Fatal Flaw, at first.
  • Scary Black Man: He is quite intimidating.
  • See You in Hell: His literal last words, to Alex, in Season 2.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: In season 2, where he doesn't showcase much skills. He averts this in season 4, where he becomes much more helpful and less evil, but still keeps his massive ego.
  • Token Evil Teammate: To the guests in season 2, he becomes less evil in season 4 and since they have the Sorceress she fulfils this role.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In Season 4.
  • Teeth Clenched Team Work: With Alex in Season 2 episode 4.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He and Jesse decide to leave the group even though he knows the place is full of evil and one of them, Alex, has just been kidnapped.

    The Vaudevillain / The Hollywood Star (S4) 

Played by Gabbie Hanna

  • And Show It to You: How she dies, in Season 2 Episode 7.
  • Attention Whore: The biggest one so far.
  • Awesome Ego: She's beautiful and a badass and happily brags about it.
  • Back from the Dead: Obviously hoping for survival in the case of Season 4!
  • Bring My Brown Pants: At one point during Season 4 Episode 2, according to her confessional.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: In Season 2. It was very disheartening.
  • Damsel in Distress: For a small portion of Season 4 Episode 1. Also in Episode 5 of the same season.
  • Drama Queen: One of the reasons why she's funny.
  • Fluffy Fashion Feathers: On her headdress.
  • Nice Headdress: Has a rather impressive one with feathers in Season 2.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Her Freudian Excuse for treating Tana like crap in season 4 was because she was jealous of her beauty.
  • It's All About Me: Yep.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Has some morally questionable decisions and can be extremely rude towards others but always makes up for it afterwards. She convinces everyone to vote for Lauren but apologises to Alex later on, feeling it was mistake. She supports DeStorm, but isn't as selfish as him, because while DeStorm sneaks away from the group, Gabbie jumps between Joey and his gun to make sure everyone is safe. In season 4 she is constantly diminishing and rude towards Tana but says it was out of jealousy and apologises. In season 2 she seems absolutely heartbroken by her death.
  • Narcissist: She's aware of her beauty.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Both seasons.
  • She's Got Legs: Her Season 2 dress has a hip-high slit in it, and when she's running…
  • Tempting Fate: During the voting process, she said that she felt sorry for the one to go up against Alex. Guess who got voted in?
  • Those Two Guys: Girls, with Tana.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Dyed purple/violet in Season 2. She's stunning.

    The Saloon Girl / The Pin-Up Girl (S4) 

Played by Tana Mongeau

  • Attention Whore: And it's VERY obvious.
  • Back from the Dead: Many fans didn't anticipate her return in Season 4, but still!
  • Brainless Beauty: Gives off this impression at first to DeStorm.
  • Damsel in Distress: For a portion of Season 4 Episode 2.
  • Gutted Like a Fish: The guardian to the Path of Betrayal sliced her in the stomach in Season 2.
  • The Heart: It's obvious that she's the kindest one of the bunch in Season 2, possibly excluding Lauren.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: She thought that she wouldn't win the challenge against Justine.
  • Hidden Depths: At first, DeStorm thought of her as a Brainless Beauty, but spending time with her in Season 4 revealed her full potential to him (i.e. she found a lot of clues). She also knows how to read mirror handwriting, a skill that came in handy in Season 4 Episode 5.
  • Improvised Weapon: Not quite a weapon, per se, but she definitely threw a lollipop at the Sorceress.
  • The Load: Everyone thinks of here as this, but season 4 makes it clear that she's NOT to be underestimated.
  • Look Behind You: Invokes this to throw away some disgusting dumplings in Season 4 Episode 4. Counted into Funny Moments.
  • Motor Mouth: According to the Bretman, this was her main flaw - he suggested to revive her, but pointed out they would have to tape her mouth shut.
  • Nice Hat: Season 4.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She has no qualms showing off her body. Even in Season 4.
  • Tempting Fate: When she and Gabbie were entering the Season 4 Episode 5 challenge, she hoped that both of them would come out alive, like the last time they had participated in a challenge against each other - Season 2 Episode 3. The kicker? Both of them died. And the fanbase is screaming.
  • Those Two Guys: Or girls, with Gabbie.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Season 4, she becomes more assertive and finds more clues. She also wins her challenge as opposed to flunking in it in Season 2. Her increased helpfulness is also a major factor for when she became an option for revival.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Considered this by some of the fandom.

Season 3 Guests

     The Disco Dancer / The Duchess (S4) 

Played by Colleen Ballinger

  • Arch-Nemesis: Joey in Season 4, because I dunno, he killed her the previous season?
  • Back from the Dead: Season 4. Hopefully, this dilutes the shock from the Season 3 Tropes about her. She also returns from her Death With No Return in Season 4 Episode 8.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her outfit in Season 3.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Gets voted into the Maiden of Madness by everyone in the group after all the drama she caused with Joey in previous episodes by accusing him of being up to no good. Her screams from being sealed inside are enough to cause Nightmare Fuel for anyone, and this is arguably not just the worst death in the season, but also THE ENTIRE SERIES SO FAR.
  • Damsel in Distress: For a portion of Season 4 Episode 1. And the beginning of Episode 8 if the same season, when she was captured by pirates THE MOMENT SHE GOT Back from the Dead. And for a minute or two in same Season, Episode 10.
  • Doomed Contrarian: She basically went after Joey actively in Season 3 Episode 6. She regreted her actions by the end of the episode, but...
  • Drama Queen: Becomes this in how she antagonizes Joey in Season 3 Episodes 5 and 6. It does not end well.
  • Fluffy Fashion Feathers: Wears a feather boa in Season 3.
  • Grievous Bottley Harm: She uses a beer bottle to knock out the Pirate Girl holding her and Ro captive in Episode 8, rendering her a Damsel out of Distress.
  • Iron Maiden: The Maiden of Madness. Directly ties into the Cruel and Unusual Death Trope above.
  • Nice Hat: Season 4. Also used as her representative emoji by the Teasing Creator.
  • She Is the King: She is made King of Camelot and retrieves Excalibur.
  • Take That!: She delivers one to Logan Paul with a fantastic quote on Confession Cam about the Strong Man.
    Colleen's reaction to the Strong Man: This guy reminds me of a very large, terrifying Logan Paul.
  • True Blue Femininity: She wears a blue coat in Season 4, though it looks grey sometimes.

     The Record Producer 

Played by Manny Guitterez

     The Detective 

Played by Matthew Patrick

     The Troublemaker 

Played by Nikita Dragun

  • Bare Your Midriff: Her Season 4 outfit.
  • Brutal Honesty: Described so Behind the Scenes, in Season 3 Episode 11.
  • Cleavage Window: Has one for her Season 3 outfit.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Despite not involving combat. She crawls between the Minotaur's legs when he was in her way during the challenge, and also knocked over Colleen's Parthenon while the latter was ahead.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Subverted in the fact that she wears a wig (and sadly, it doesn't get snatched at any point).
  • Determinator: Discussed in Season 4 Episode 7, and she happens to be one herself.
  • Dice Roll Death: Taken very much literally, then defied, in Season 3 Episode 1. She escaped her original fate because Mortimer dropped by on a motorcycle and shot the Monster Clown that was gonna kill her.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When she received her invitation, she was immediately characterized as a Deadpan Snarker of sorts.
    Nikita, to the one delivering her invitation: B*tch, where's my burger? I did not order this.
  • Final Girl: She survives until Season 3 Episode 10 and escapes the night.
  • Girlish Pigtails: With a headband during Season 4.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Appears to share one with MatPat in Season 4.
  • Genius Bruiser: Very likely to be capable at asskicking, but she solved her riddle in the Minotaur's Maze very quickly too.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Subverted. She wears a blonde wig and she's one of the most ruthless of the group. Behind the scenes is a different story...
  • It's All About Me: Downplayed. Her main priority is, understandably, her own survival. However, she tends to be very blunt about this and doesn't care for what others think. When Safiya gets killed due to a last second twist in Season 3 Episode 7, Nikita very coldly says she "got what she deserved" for voting Nikita into the challenge.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: As much as she cares for Manny, she chose to save herself over him in Season Episode 9.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She literally vowed to go after the people that voted her and Manny into the Funhouse Death Challenge in Season 3 Episode 7 if she made it out and Manny didn't. She also cried after winning the challenge because she thought it meant Manny would die (though they soon find out that's not the case). Though she comes off as the above trope a lot, it's also clear that she cares a lot for Manny.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Depending on whether you like her or not.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Some fans may believe that she crossed it in Season 3 Episode 9 when she killed her best friend, Manny, for her own survival in the elimination challenge.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Her name is Nikita Dragun, and she's one of the most ruthless in the group. Some of you'd better run and get outta her way.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Manny, until...
  • Sadistic Choice: Has to choose between killing herself or her best friend.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: Her shared Verbal Tic (somewhat) with Manny.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: During Season 3 episode 3 her mean traits really start to shine, she calls people out with not regrets, doesn't care about anyone's well being and acts like a jerk to everyone. She does help the team, shows her nicer side and it is turned down in later episodes but her rude and ruthless behaviour in Season 3 episode 3 and the fact that she's mainly responsible for killing Roi is unforgivable, to some.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Implied to have joined the SAE with Joey and Matt in Season 4.] Confirmed in Episode 6 of the season.

     The Daredevil 

Played by Roi Fabito/Guava Juice

     The Jet Setter / The Socialite (S4) 

Played by Rosanna Pansino

  • Affectionate Nickname: Ro.
  • Back from the Dead: Returns to the All-Stars Season 4! Probably the fanbase threatening Joey to bring her back or get him Gabbie'd.
  • Badass Adorable: Arguably. She beat Colleen at arm-wrestling in Season 3 Episode 5. This is even lampshaded by Colleen on Confession Cam.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: According to this analysis, she holds at least partial responsibility for three deaths, the second-most kills out of everyone in her initial season. Damn. Don't mess with Mama Bear Rosanna or her boys.
    • And that's just Season 3.
  • The Chick / The Heart: The moral centre and the innocent one that keeps everyone together. Adored by the fandom.
  • The Cutie: A sweet, innocent, cinnamon roll for most of the series thus far. She's incredibly kind and has little to no malicious intentions, even showing remorse when Nikita goes into the death challenge in Season 3 Episode 3, as she voted for Nikita because she was someone she hadn't worked the most with and she didn't know what else to do as well as when she voted for Colleen to be put in the Iron Maiden in episode 6, as she apologies tearfully while doing so.
    • This became absolutely canon when official posts on Twitter acknowledges her to be a cinnamon roll.
      • Goes Up to Eleven when her cinnamon roll status was solidified. In canon. By Joey himself.
    • Break the Cutie: Season 4 implies this as she gets into a row with Joey.
  • Chekhov's Skill: She taught in China before and knew how to eat with chopsticks, and could converse in Mandarin (a little). This helped out a lot in the suitor challenge.
  • Damsel in Distress: For a portion of Season 4 Episode 1, and a portion of 2, a teeny while of 8, and the prison adventure in Season 3 Episode 5.
  • Eaten Alive: Her final fate. WE'RE SO SORRY, EPITOME CINNAMON ROLL!
  • Eye Scream: Discussed in Season 4 Episode 4, where she plans to do this to The Emperor with her hairpin.
  • Fangirl: For Merlin, in Season 4 Episode 5. She is also one for Jurassic World, apparently.
  • The Glomp: In Season 4 Episode 6, when she reunites with her Brother From Another Mother.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: On Confession Cam in Season 4 Episode 6.
  • Mama Bear: Outright declares herself one for Joey in Season 3 Episode 7.
  • Nice Hat: A yellow beret in Season 3, a smaller black one in Season 4.
  • Nice Shoes: Downplayed, but she had to ruin her Platform Oxfords to get one of the Lazarus Coins. Shame.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Matt.
  • Socialite: Her role in Season 4.
  • Surprisingly Good Foreign Language: Mandarin. Justified as she taught for a year in China, and thus learnt a little survival Mandarin.
  • Taking a Level in Badass: Shown in Season 3 Episode 4 when she is sent into a death challenge with Teala Dunn to find her letters to spell out the name of The Man With No Name. Originally, Manny had pointed out that she's defeated, and Joey points out that he wants her to defend herself and show that she's still passionate about surviving. She comes back, saying "I'm a fighter, and I'm gonna stick it out till the end."
    • Doubles as Tempting Fate, because she doesn't make it out alive.
      • Then the above trope is subverted, respectively, as she's Back from the Dead. Then the trope becomes double subverted because… *outraged fandom screeching in the distance* tragedy struck.
  • Tempting Fate: Other than the above…
    Rosanna, Season 4 Episode 9: I don't wanna be a snack!
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Considered this by some, if not most, of the fandom. Proven sadly true in Season 3 Episode 8.
    • Eventually subverted when she was given a second chance to fight for her life in Season 4!
      • And this one is double subverted as well because DANG IT, BOYS!!
  • True Blue Femininity: In Season 4, she wears a dark blue polka-dotted dress, though they appear black under the lighting sometimes.
  • Undying Loyalty: She didn't even question after reading her invitation, because one of her boys was in need of help!

     The Investigative Reporter 

Played by Safiya Nygaard

     The Super Spy 

Played by Teala Dunn

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Reasons why everyone voted on her? They either thought she was not contributing to the team, or they were jealous of her outfit(nikita) and she couldn't her name right(Safiya).
  • Black Girl Dies First: Defied, as Safiya managed to save her in that particular death challenge. Discussed behind the scenes by herself.
  • Butt-Monkey: No one tolerates her and she's constantly bullied because she sucks at puzzles.
  • Elimination Houdini: Almost became this,as she was disliked by most of the group due to being perceived as the most useless and/or least contributing to the challenges.Teala was voted into a challenge with JC in Episode 2 and survived only due to Safiya completing her challenge faster than MatPat (resulting in JC's death). Teala was also heavily considered for elimination in Episode 3 by the rest of the group but didn't get voted in due to Nikita being voted in instead. Now averted, because Teala died in Episode 4's elimination challenge with Rosanna. And There Was Much Rejoicing by the rest of the group when Rosanna returned instead of Teala.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: No one even bothers to ask what happened to her after she died, they're all just glad Rosanna is back instead of her.
  • The Friend No One Likes: Everyone is annoyed with her constantly screwing up or not helping in challenges and the longer she stays, the less popular she becomes. This is most evident on two points, during the first voting ceremony, no one is surprised or says a word when she gets picked, they all simply look away, knowing that the majority voted her in. The second time is when Joey tells the group that there's only a certain amount of cards per person, without saying it, everyone realises he's talking about Teala.
  • The Load: The reason the others kept voting for her.
  • Running Gag: She keeps mispronouncing Safiya's name as Sophia. It hilariously gets on Safiya's nerves.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Clowns.

     The Hippie 

Played by JC Caylen

  • Dramatic Irony: His entire death is this. He helps out his team and becomes their best player but thanks to poor communication skills between him and MatPat, he gets voted into the challenge by one vote. He even lampshades this as he then picks Mat and jokes about him being the one who voted for him. Not realising that he's actually right.
  • Hidden Depths: No one expected JC of all people to be a math genius.
  • Mellow Fellow: He almost doesn't seem to care that he's in a life or death situation as he's always calm, probably only except when getting killed.
  • The Quiet One: Almost only talks in confessionals, until the math challenge and voting scene where he really shines as a character.
  • The Stoic: Is the coolest about the whole situation, even when they need to vote someone to die he's trying to be rational about it.
  • The Stoner: While it's never stated, he has a relaxed personality and has many traits that fit this trope. His introduction even references this by adding a water bubbling sound effect.
  • Tempting Fate: He constantly says that he feels safe, since he helped out the group in a pivotal moment. But hiis confidence was misplaced as Mat Pat decided to vote him in. Afterwards he's speculating about who voted him in. He lists Mat as a suspect and his last words to the group were: "How f#cked up would it be if Mat was the one who voted me in?"
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's good at math and a very relaxed person. That's about it.

Season 4 Guests

Please take note that most of the guests in Season 4 are Back from the Dead, due to it being an All-Stars season, and the initial profiles of the guests will be added on to, instead of making a whole new folder for them.

The Season 4 YouTubers are:

  • The Socialite - Rosanna Pansino (S3 - The Jet Setter)
  • The Aviator - Alex Wassabi (S2 - The Novelist)
  • The Con Man - Timothy DeLaGhetto (S1 - The Mobster)
  • The Enforcer - DeStorm Power (S2 - The Railroad Tycoon)

  • The Hollywood Star - Gabbie Hanna (S2 - The Vaudvillian)
  • The Duchess - Colleen Ballinger (S3 - The Disco Dancer)

    The Playboy 

Played by Bretman Rock

  • Agent Peacock: Despite wearing makeup, he broke a board near-effortlessly during Episode 4. Guess Nikita has a type when it concerns friends.
  • Animal Motifs: A rabbit, courtesy of the Teasing Creator.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: It might be just his makeup though.
  • Camp Gay: Maybe a bit downplayed on the show, but it counts.
  • Chekhov's Skill: He mentioned that he had been on the Track Team while at school. This sure helped him a lot when he had to compete in a Race challenge in Episode 8. His prowess in slingshots as a child also came in handy.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Mortimer is turned to stone, he remarks that he's a stoner too.
  • Determinator: Discussed in Episode 7, and he classifies too.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Implied as he obviously knew nothing of Joey's previous excursions against the Evil in-universe, prior to hearing the dead discuss. Confirmed when Joey said that it took him a while to comprehend what was going on (in-universe).
  • Odd Name Out: The only member of the season cast who's new to this. The Discord population from the fandom has gone mental over this fact.
  • Playboy Bunny: Not his outfit, as we can see, but part of the Stealth Pun above.
  • The Smart Guy: Quickly proves himself to be this despite being the Naïve Newcomer.

Recurring Characters

Characters that appear in all or most episodes, but other minor characters may have their own profiles as well, depending on how vital they are to the storyline.

Each season has one or more "assist" characters, teaching the guest how voting works and bringing them clues if needed, they also serve to count and reveal the votes.

Season 1

    Arthur, Sarah and Marvin 

Played by Paul Chirico, Katia Hayes and David Hutchison, respectively

The head of staff and main assist character for season one, the maid and the groundskeeper.
  • Affably Evil: Marvin, to an extent.
  • Benevolent Boss: Zigzagged in the finale. While Arthur verbally abuses Sarah and Marvin in that episode, he also compliments Marvin's gardening abilities.
  • Big Bad: Revealed to be this in the finale. A multilude of fans figured it out much earlier.
  • Caring Gardener: No one can grow pansies quite like Marvin.
  • Creepy Housekeeper: This was basically Sarah's entire role for the first half of the series.
  • The Mole: They're evil. Full stop.
  • Walking Spoiler: Due to their roles as the Big Bad.

    Former Owners 
The ex-owners of the Mansion that must be freed by the YouTubers to banish the Evil]]. Includes the Priest, Madison and her fellow mermaids, Colin (the ex-soldier), Vincent and Arthur's brother.
  • All There in the Manual: Supplementary material reveals the names of the characters with No Name Given.
  • Cannot Tell Fiction from Reality: Vincent is accused of this by the doctor that interrogates and tortures him in his flashback episode. Given his awareness of someone working with the evil of the house the whole time, however, it's possible Vincent defies this trope to an extent…
  • Domestic Abuse: Madison was abused by her husband prior to becoming a mermaid.
  • Greed: Colin's Fatal Flaw, who wouldn't leave the f**king house without all of his motherf**king German gold, and thus KILLED TIM!!!!
  • Hallucinations: Vincent suffers from these, and the guests have to confront three of them in order to free him.
  • Hate Sink: Colin. Though unintended, basically everyone in the fandom hates him and he has few to no redeeming qualities. Why else would there be a string of f-bombs on the above entry?
  • Hooks and Crooks: Arthur's brother murdered Marvin and Sarah with a hook.
  • Hunk: Probably Colin's only possible redeeming feature - he's sexy.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Arthur's brother.
  • Jerkass: Colin. Oh God, Colin, in a f**king nutshell.
  • Karma Houdini: Colin was an uncaring Jerkass who never got his comeuppance. Thus, he is hated by virtually the entire fandom. If only he weren't so greedy...
  • My Greatest Failure: The Priest who failed to save a girl, possessed by a demon.
  • No Name Given: The Priest, though other material reveal his name to be 'David Santos'. Arthur's brother is also confirmed to be named 'Marco'.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Madison has a slashed mouth and, as Tim kindly puts it, "gill t*tties". They can even walk! Despite this, even Eva and Oli consider them attractive, for some reason.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After being freed from his prison, Arthur's brother goes on a rampage and slaughters all three villains like a boss.
  • The Scrooge: Colin. He guards his pile of German gold like a pitbull, and even killed his mates because he believed one of them had taken it.
  • Walking Spoiler: We can't talk about them without mentioning the Plot Twist in the beginning of Episode 6.

  • Ojou Ringlets: She has curls right in front of her ears and is technically the Princess of the Vampires.
  • Rebellious Princess: Since her father is the King of the Vampires, and her mother the Queen, she is automatically the Vampire Princess, even though no one but the fandom acknowledges this. The rebellious part is self-explanatory: she helps the YouTubers throughout the season, up until her death in Episode 8.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Some spell her name as 'Allison'…

    Jetpack Girl 
The assistant of Cedric, who then turned to help him.

  • Gender-Blender Name: 'Torhil' is sometimes spelt as "Torhild", which is a Norwegian girl's name.

Season 3


Played by Shontae Saldana

One of the main assist characters for Season 3.
  • Belated Backstory: At first, we don't know much about her, but then came Episode 10...
  • Bullying a Dragon: In Episode 9, she steals Mortimer's handgun and shoots and hits the Carnival Master. This results in her death.
  • Cassandra Truth: Everyone in town - YouTubers included, didn't believe what she said about the Cursed God and the artifacts, etc., until the Monster Clown gang struck.
  • Crazy Awesome: At first, she only seems like a Cloud Cuckoo Lander, but then came her actions and her backstory...
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Initially gives off this impression to the guests in Episode 1, but...
    • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Quickly subverted the above trope in the same episode when it turns out that she was right about the Carnival Master and his wicked schemes.
  • Crowbar Combatant: Uses a crowbar to beat down a Monster Clown in Episode 1. We never saw her do this again, though.
  • Hidden Depths: It is revealed at the beginning of Episode 10 that she was the SAE member that came with Jael and Ryu. She survived due to going to hold off the guardians instead of joining the other two attacking the Carnival Master. She spent the next forty years stuck in time attempting to protect the town only to be mocked.

The equivalent of the Lieutenants and Guardians. These include the Mummy of the Pharaoh, Garuda, the Emperor, the Black Knight, the Gorgon (Medusa), Scheherazade, Rorik the Pirate, the Velociraptors.

Merlin appears in Episode 5, as part of the Camelot arc.
  • Badass Beard: Duh.
  • Cool Old Guy: Old, and very much a badass fighter.
  • Disney Death: At one point, it is supposed that he was killed in combat with the Black Knight. He came back at the very last minute to fight him again, but it is heavily implied that he died in the second duel.
  • Merlin: Sounds about right.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Of course.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He was chained up by the Collector and assists the remaining YouTubers.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Ali Baba. In source material, he is heroic, while he became villainous during Episode 7, the episode featuring Arabic tales and myths.

  • Chekhov's Gunman: The Caveman. He first appears in Episode 5, then plays a far larger role in Episode 9.
  • Crusading Widow: Fatima, after her Star-Crossed Lovers partner Sinbad was killed. She got her revenge on Scheherazade by writing her name down on the story instead of the loser of the challenge.
  • Defiant to the End: King Arthur.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When the Caveman helped the group chase away the Black Knight at one point in Episode 5, it becomes obvious that he dislikes the Collector and her minions as much as the YouTubers do, and is willing to help out a friend in need.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: The Pharaoh's Wife betrayed her husband and was a side villain for Episode 2.
  • A Load of Bull: The Minotaur.
  • Mooks: The Egyptian Guards and the unnamed pirates.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: The Egyptian guards of the museum follow the orders of the one with the Ruler's Rod, be they heroic or villainous.
  • Pirate and Pirate Girl: They appear in Episode 8, but there are indeed openly female pirates in the episode, most notably Jezebel.
  • Red Herring: The Egyptian guards were initially believed to be important characters, but were only so in Episode 1. The Pharaoh's Wife was killed less than a minute after she was revealed to be the traitor, which meant that she couldn't develop her villainous potential.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: The Genie. He was stuck there as he was tricked by Scheherazade.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The credits list him as "Sinbad", but it can also be spelt as "Sindbad".
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Sinbad and Fatima. The Collector didn't allow them to be together. And they decided to have a Big Damn Kiss in front of the YouTubers, which was when they were reunited.
  • Taking You with Me: Sinbad. After he was stabbed by Ali Baba, he stabbed the other as well.
  • They Do: Rorik and Jezebel, despite their issues.
  • The Unintelligible: The Caveman.
