The Creeps in General
A team of spooks, ghouls, and beasts who make up the quirky cast of a storybook now being torn asunder by its own villain. Now, joined by the "Legendary Witch," they must band together to restore the lost pages, overthrow the Boogeyman, and save their story.
- Competitive Balance: The character sheets list stats for each character, which consist of:
- Elemental Powers: The Creeps individual powers cover most of the basics (wind, fire, water, ice, electricity, etc.).
- Expressive Accessory: In Monsdress form, their faces - particularly, their eyes - are still visible and emotive in the form of the outfit's headwear.
- Fatal Flaw: Each of the Creeps has some type of drawback that makes them unable to fight with full potential; hence why they're turned into magic outfits for Fiona to not only utilize their abilities, but enhance them with her witch magic.
- Living Clothes: The titular Wardrobe magically transforms them into still-conscious outfits called "Monsdresses" for Fiona to wear, granting her their powers.
- Monster Mash: The group is completely made up of different iconic monster species.
- One-Winged Angel: The Boogeyman forcibly transmogrifies them into bigger, more monstrous forms of themselves to act as Bosses, until Fiona beats them and returns them to normal.
- Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits: Each of them is either an outcast or otherwise isolated and lonely, all for a different reason.

A lonely young girl who finds solace in her favorite book... until the day its pages start mysteriously going missing. It's then that she's transported into the book's spooky world of Wickedopolis, to take up the mantle of the Legendary Witch and help the characters within to save their story.
- Alliterative Name: Fiona Frightening.
- All of the Other Reindeer: Gets bullied by other kids for liking dark clothes and spooky things.
- Curtains Match The Windows: Both her eyes and hair are dark purple.
- Cute Witch: Gains a witch costume and some magic powers upon entering the book. And, being a sweet little ten-year-old, she is, indeed, very cute.
- Expressive Accessory: Her witch's hat (in promotional drawings, at least) manages to be very expressive with its stitched mouth and button eyes.
- Genki Girl: When she's not being bullied or feeling shy, she's generally chipper and bubbly.
- Nightmare Fetishist: Loves all things creepy and spooky.
- Perky Goth: Is also very sweet and friendly.
- Supernatural Is Purple: Her Purple Eyes and hair happen to tie in to her " magic witch" role quite nicely.

A young vampire boy who, according to the storybook, is the leader of the Creeps. However, neither he nor anyone else understands how or why this would be the case, given his very timid and anxious nature. In his off time, he practices painting.
- Blow You Away: In his Monsdress form, he grants Fiona wings for both flight and wind-based attacks.
- Cape Wings: His cloak takes the form of a pair of bat wings, even when not in use.
- Classical Movie Vampire: Definitely has the style down, with the old-fashion, upper class style of dress, the dark cape, and the slicked-back hair.
- Cute Little Fangs: A natural standard for a young vampire.
- Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: About as harmless as they come.
- Ironic Fear: A classic Creature of the Night with an intense fear of the dark.
- Our Vampires Are Different: Has long, massive bat ears in addition to Cape Wings and nyctophobia.
- Lovable Coward: He's a very easily frightened and neurotic mess most of the time, but is still a sweet boy.
- Shout-Out: In reference to Draphael being a painter, his name is a portmanteau of Dracula and the first name of Raphael Sanzio.
- Skunk Stripe: His hair is made up of equally-wide black and white streaks, despite being a young kid. Given that his vampiric sister also has them, it's apparently a species trait.
- Vampire Vords: Subverted. His accent is French rather than the standard Hungarian or genericized Eastern European.
- Younger Than They Look: With the white hair streaks, the clothes, and the generally Chibi-esc art style of the cast as a whole, it can be hard to tell at a glance that he's only twelve. Or at least, the vampiric equivalent of twelve; it's still entirely possible that he's chronologically much older.

A wild, sassy and snarky little werewolf girl who has been raised by cats since an early age. As such, she believes herself to be one and acts very feline. That is, except for the moments when her true wolf instincts kick in.
- Animal Eyes: Big, bright green eyes with slit cat's pupils.
- Animal Jingoism: Being raised as a "cat," she hates dogs.
- Big Eater: Is stated to love food and will voraciously chomp on anything she can sink her fangs into.
- Cat Folk: That's what she appears to be, anyway.
- Cheshire Cat Grin: Her character portraits typically show her sporting a wide, impishly toothy grin.
- Cute Little Fangs: When she's not grinning wildly, her teeth appear much smaller and more kittenish.
- Fragile Speedster: While her Power and Defense stats are very low, she's easily the fastest member of the Creeps.
- Little Miss Snarker: A five-year-old girl described as "sarcastically sassy," which she may or may not have picked up from her cat family.
- My Instincts Are Showing: While she acts like a cat most of the time, her wolf instincts still kick in now and then. Particularly during a full moon, of course.
- Ironic Fear: She was raised to hate and fear canines. So only time will tell how she reacts to learning her true heritage.
- Oblivious Adoption: Thinks she's a cat because she was raised by a family of felines.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: Even aside from the "thinks she's a cat" aspect, she also has slit-pupilled green eyes, and the sections of her coat that aren't fluffy and brown are orange with tabby stripes. Also, the mass of long hair on her head is tied back into a giant ponytail, in leau of an actual tail.

An amphibious swamp creature who was inexplicably blessed with idealized physical attractiveness atypical of others of his species - and he knows it, too. He mostly hangs out with the Creeps since his fellow gillmen kicked him out of the swamp after getting sick of his very vocal showboating.
- All Love Is Unrequited: He has the hots for Mumma, who only finds his flirtations annoying.
- Camp Straight: If there's one person he thinks comes close to being as pretty as he is, it's Princess Mumma.
- Cartoony Eyes: A nonstandard example - his eyes are a solid, shiny black with no visible sclerae.
- Making a Splash: In addition to his Monsdress form taking the shape of a swimsuit for Fiona to swim underwater, he grants her water-based attacks on land as well.
- Master of None: None of his individual stats are the worst on the team, but none of them are really great either.
- Mr. Fanservice: Has a lean, well-toned body that he isn't remotely shy about showing off.
- Non-Humans Lack Attributes: This allows him to get away with prancing about completely nude.
- Pretty Boy: He's the character most defined by physical attractiveness, and is flamboyantly vain about it.
- Pride: Narcissism is his biggest defining trait personality-wise.
- Voiced by: Scott "KaiserNeko" Frerichs
A dimwitted Rock Golem originating from a city in Wickedopolis populated by finely-sculpted, Marble Golems. Despite being treated as an ugly outcast in his homeland, he remains sweet-natured with a literal heart of gold worn on his stone sleeve.
- All of the Other Reindeer: Is shunned by the other golems for his crudely-cobbled-looking appearance.
- The Ditz: The meter for his "Brains" stat is nearly nonexistent.
- Dishing Out Dirt: One of his abilities involves summoning boulders to chuck at enemies.
- Dumb Is Good: His lack of brains leads to his being the innocent, childlike simpleton of the group.
- Ground Pound: Another of his abilities consists of hitting the ground hard enough to cause minor earthquakes.
- The Heart: Exhibits a sweetness that rivals even Fiona, and sports a golden-yellow heart-shaped gem on his palm to reflect this.
- Mighty Glacier: Is both the most defensive and the slowest on the team.
- No Mouth: No visible one, anyway.
- Rolling Attack: Can compensate for his low speed to a degree by rolling like a boulder, crushing enemies and obstacles on the way.
- Voiced by: Kyle "Phantom Savage" Land
A jokey, scarecrow-like performer with a jack-o'-lantern head. Before meeting and joining the other Creeps, he works as a circus performer, getting routinely booed off the stage and pelted with fruit for his bad jokes.
- Cartoon Bomb: Can attack with "Pumpkin Bombs," complete with white fuses.
- Cartoon Physics: While the game as a whole is fairly cartoony, Jack in particular utilizes cartoon logic in ways the others don't through his antics, showcasing the most direct inspiration from Chuck Jones and Tex Avery.
- Fun Personified: A jovial jokester who's rarely seen not cracking jokes or otherwise getting up to shenanigans.
- Green Thumb: Rapidly growing and controlling plants is his main ability, both for battle and exploration in his Monsdress form.
- Non-Ironic Clown: Works as one for the monster circus before joining the other Creeps.
- Performance Anxiety: Despite his loud and kooky persona, he gets stage fright, which contributes to his poor performances.
- Plant Person: Even aside from his carved pumpkin head, his whole body is a construct of vines and vegetation.
- Produce Pelting: He's a frequent victim of this during his comedy routines on stage.
- Screwy Squirrel: Spends much of his appearance on Dr. Crafty messing with the titular doctor for kicks and giggles.
- Why Did It Have To Be Snakes: A slightly older profile of his casually states that he hates bugs.
- The Wacky Guy: Acts as the gang's own resident jester who makes a joke out of everything and everyone. This is especially evident in the Dr. Crafty episode he appears in.Jack-O-Laugh: "I mean, that Crystal Page there is only the physical manifestation of my very heart and soul; the very core of my existence! ... So of course I'm gonna make a paper airplane out of it!" (cackles)

A Will-o'-the-Wisp in a suit of armor, working as a Candle Knight for the Candle Knight Order. Or at least, he used to, until the other knights sent him on an alleged "noble quest" just to get rid of him, while he ventured off to complete his task none-the-wiser.
- Animated Armor: Appears as a suit of armor piloted by a phantom blue light.
- Lord Error-Prone: He's certainly a very kind and noble knight... just not a very competent one. At all.
- Knight in Shining Armor: What he aspires to be.
- Nice Guy: Regardless of how good he is at it or not, he's completely earnest in his desire to help others in any way possible.
- Playing with Fire: Primarily uses fire-based attacks, using his giant candle hands as flamethrowers.
- Snipe Hunt: He's so incompetent a knight, that the other knights in his guild trick him into exile by assigning him on a false quest. He soon comes to the conclusion that said quest must have something to do with helping Fiona's mission.
- Technicolor Fire: His flames burn a bright, ghostly blue.
- Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Personality being that of a classic fairytale-esc knight, he doth naturally speaketh in such a manner.
- Voiced by: Curtis "Takahata" Arnott
A cultured and well-read Frankenstein's Monster who holds a great love and appreciation for the classical, whether it be music, literature, or theatre. He aspires to star in a stage production of his own creation some day.
- Cyborg: A good chunk of his body is built from metal machinery, including a pair of giant cylindrical batteries sticking out of his back.
- Flesh Golem: The parts of him that aren't metal are green and grey, crudely-stitched flesh, as is traditional of cartoon Frankenstein creatures.
- Gentleman and a Scholar: Prefers to spend his time reading Shakespeare with some afternoon tea.
- Large Ham: Can get like this at times, being a huge fan of classical theatre and an aspiring playwright and actor.
- Mighty Glacier: Not to the same extent as Golemmy, but he's still extremely strong and physically slow-moving.
- Shock and Awe: His Monsdress form allows Fiona to use electricity-based moves for battle and power up machines.
- The Smart Guy: Is regarded as the brains of the group, as reflected by his "Brains" stat being the highest in the cast.
- Tortured Monster: Averted. In stark contrast to traditional, angsty depictions of the creature, Francis is aware of and completely comfortable with what he is.
- Voiced by: Corinne "Megami33" Sudberg
The undead daughter of an Egyptian Pharaoh, she's naturally lived an afterlife of luxury and expects to be treated like a goddess at all times. In spite of her high and mighty attitude and annoyance with the Creeps, she still joins them on their adventure, without giving any explanation as to why.
- Animal Motifs: Snakes. Her headdress is in the shape of a cobra, her redesigned bracelets are coiling snakes, and even her eyes are more snake-like than that of other humanoid female characters in the cast.
- Cool Crown: A gold-and-azure, cobra-shaped headdress.
- Daddy's Girl: Has been spoiled rotten by her Pharaoh father her entire existence, and is not above commanding others to do her bidding under threat of "telling Daddy."
- Dishing Out Dirt: Can control and attack with sand, being from Egypt and whatnot.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: The princess herself would certainly assert as much.
- Expressive Accessory: The snake head of her crown can emote to compensate for half of her face being covered.
- Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Her bandages look more-or-less spray-painted on, particularly from the back.
- Lonely Rich Kid: Her spoiled nature has driven away most of her potential friends; except for the Creeps, whom she hangs out with in spite of acting disdainful towards them.
- Ms. Fanservice: Very curvy? Check. Clad in weirdly form-fitted mummy gauze? Also check.
- No Mouth: Hers is hidden beneath bandages wraps around the lower half of her face.
- Royal Brat: Has been pampered by her Pharaoh father and servants her entire life, and expect everyone else to worship her and serve her the same way.
- Whip It Good: A length of her bandages can be used as whips.

A cranky, sixty-something-year-old yeti who was once a fierce and powerful warrior of the ice and snow. And he still can be... as long as his back isn't giving him grief. Not that he'd admit to slowing down over the years.
- An Ice Person: Can manipulate ice to freeze enemies into blocks that can be used for platforming.
- Badass Beard: His latest design makes his beard long and tied toward the bottom.
- Berserk Button: "Keep calling me "old." See what happens."
- Crack Ow My Back: His bad back is a running joke with him.
- Drop the Hammer: His ice abilities can also be used to form a giant warhammer.
- Feeling Their Age: The fact that he's not the same young warrior he used to be is a big part of his story.
- Grumpy Bear: Definitely the grouchiest member of the cast.
- Grumpy Old Man: While he isn't as old as most examples (being in his sixties rather than eighties or older), most of the humor concerning him centers around his complaining about younger folks and being past his prime.
- Horny Vikings: His armor, hammer, beard, and especially his helmet all evoke the look of a classic, stereotypical warrior viking, with one horn cracked off in half for extra effect.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: You wouldn't think it, but the big grump has the second highest Heart rating among the Creeps, behind only Fiona and Golemmy who are both maxed out.
- Retired Badass: He's more than ready to get out of retirement, though.
Los Lobones and Carmen
- Voiced by: Edwin "Omahdon" Tiong and (TBA) respectively
A Spanish skeletal couple, the former being a brazen swordfighter and the latter being his trusted sword and beloved wife. Lobones was a matador in life as well, but his career was cut short by a bull, the broken horn of which remains stuck in his ribs.
- Alliterative Name: Los Lobones.
- Battle Couple: The two of them fighting together is a given, with one of them being the other's weapon.
- Blood Knight: He'll take any excuse for a duel and takes great pleasure in doing in his challenger, regardless of whether they were actually challenging him or not.
- Competition Freak: The guy is intensely competitive and will take even the slightest suggestion of someone being better than him at anything as a challenge to his prowess.
- Dashing Hispanic: Los Lobones is (or was) a bullfighter, and Carmen would certainly vouch for him being quite dashing.
- Dem Bones: In addition to Lobones being an animate skeleton, Carmen at least resembles a doll form of one.
- Happily Married: And passionately so.
- Hot-Blooded: Well, Lobones may not have actual blood, but he definitely approaches everything he does with fiery passion.
- Jacob Marley Apparel: Still wears a matador's getup, complete with the bull's horn ripped through it.

- Magic Music: Carmen has a literally enchanting operatic voice that can manipulate enemies.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Carmen is the cool-headed blue oni who reigns in Lobones' hot-headed red oni.
- Royal Rapier: Carmen is one herself.
- Voiced by: Alex Rochon
The king of night terrors himself. He served as the main villain of Fiona's favorite book, where he was destined to be thwarted again and again. That was, until he decided to take matters into his own hands and tear apart the Creeps' stories to make room for his own that ends with a Wickedly Ever After.
- The Bad Guy Wins: In-universe, he aims to rewrite the story to end this way.
- Big Bad: The major villain of both the in-game storybook and the game itself.
- The Darkness Gazes Back: The insides of his torn clothes appear to hold nothing but blackness and... eyes.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Has sickly off-white or greenish skin, depending on the picture, coupled with long locks of dark, matted-looking hair.
- Eldritch Abomination: He's an only superficially humanoid creature with bizarre and warped body proportions, multiple limps, and the aforementioned body of blackness and staring eyes hidden beneath his tattered clothes.
- Extra Eyes: Countless red ones are seen peering out through the various, wide rips in his outfit.
- Knight of Cerebus: Normally, he's just the bad guy of a children's storybook. But then the plot of the game is kicked off by his deciding to literally tear their world apart and corrupt them into his own monstrous slaves.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has two pairs of long arms with bony biceps, grotesquely massive forearms, and giant clawed hands.
- No Mouth: Despite having eyes, a nose, and a chin, there appears to be only smooth skin where a mouth would be.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Ruby red ones with tiny, staring pupils.
- Sinister Schnoz: The long, pointed nose on his otherwise small face evokes the appearance of a mosquito's probuscus.
- Spiders Are Scary: Naturally, his legs are spindly and spider-like for this very reason.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: In contrast to the whimsically silly and cartoony cast, his sinister personality and the theat he poses are played very straight.

The left-hand minion and magic book of the Boogeyman.

- I Know What You Fear: Magically holds the knowledge of all children's worst fears in its pages.
- Minion with an F in Evil: It certainly doesn't seem to enjoy its job, at least.
- Tome of Eldritch Lore: Like its name might suggest, it's a tome of fears used by the Boogeyman to terrify and traumatize children - particularly Fiona during her journey.
