Main characters

Pepper Roni

Voiced by: John Morris (LEGO Island), Dian Perry (Island Xtreme Stunts)

I'm the pizza delivery dude, the dude with the food!
—Pepper's Catchphrase in the first game

Pepper, the only character playable in all three games, is the adoptive son of Mama and Papa Brickolini. His biological father, Bologna Roni, who was either an accomplished adventurer or a talented story teller, vanished one day. He now works as delivery boy at Brickolini's Pizzeria, and loves nothing more than riding around the island on his skateboard. He excels at math, but spelling and reading are a challenge for him. He is the de facto hero of the series.

  • Catchphrase: "Way cool!"
  • Disappeared Dad: His father, Bologna Roni. He can be found in the GBC version of LEGO Island 2.
  • Dub Name Change: He introduces himself to the Adventurers as "Pepper Pizzabud" (lit. "Pepper Pizza Delivery") in the Danish version of LEGO Island 2.
  • Happily Adopted: With the Brickolinis.
  • Heroic Lineage: His father is (allegedly) a great explorer, his grandparents were traveling gourmets, and his ancestor, Rootin' Tootin' Roni, was a cowboy and early pioneer of Lego Island.
  • Heroic Mime: Aside from a few grunts, Pepper Roni has no dialogue in Island Xtreme Stunts. He is also voiceless when playing as him in the first game.
  • "L" Is for "Dyslexia": Several islanders mention Pepper's poor spelling and reading skills in the first game. While playing as Pepper, a sign by the jail that reads "NO PIZZA" is changed to "NO PIZAZ".

  • Punny Name: His name is a play on "pepperoni".
  • Totally Radical: Speaks this way all the time in the first two games.

Mama Brickolini

Voiced by: June Foray (LEGO Island), Dian Perry (Island Xtreme Stunts)

Mama is an immigrant who came to LEGO Island with only the clothes on her back and her piano. She has a passion for music and is often seen playing her piano. She is nearsighted, even though she doesn't wear any glasses. She owns and runs Brickolini's Pizzeria along with her husband, Papa Brickolini, whom she met and married on the boat that took her to the island. As mentioned above, she is the adoptive mother of Pepper. She is one the playable characters in the first game.

  • Heroic Mime: In the first game, Mama is very talkative as an NPC, but completely silent as the player character.
  • King Incognito: Her rumored maiden name, Clickoff, just so happens to be that of the Royal House of Buildovia.
  • Advertisement:
  • Literal-Minded: When asked what brought her to LEGO Island, her first answer was...
    Mama Brickolini: The boat, silly!
  • Punny Name: Her name is a portmanteau of "brick" and "broccolini".

Papa Brickolini

Voiced by: Ralph Peduto (LEGO Island), John Guerrasio (Island Xtreme Stunts)

Papa owns and runs Brickolini's Pizzeria along with his wife, Mama Brickolini. He the man who makes all of the pizzas on Lego Island. Like his wife, he enjoys music. He is good at dancing, but is a terrible singer. As mentioned above, he is the adoptive father of Pepper, who is always told by Papa to get to work delivering pizzas. He is one of the playable characters in the first game.

  • Dreadful Musician: At least he acknowledges that he's bad. (Doesn't stop him from singing anyway.)
    Papa: Now I put the sauce on the dough. Dough? Do, re, mi!
  • Heroic Mime: In the first game, Papa is very talkative as an NPC, but completely silent as the player character.
  • Impossibly Delicious Food: Island citizens love his pizzas so much that he is constantly stresses out making so many pizzas. One has to wonder how many pizzas he and his brick oven can make at a time.
    • Though the fact that the Pizzeria is the only place to eat on the island might have something to do with the popularity.
  • Punny Name: His name is a portmanteau of "brick" and "broccolini".
  • Supreme Chef: Makes the best pizzas on Lego Island, even though he is the only chef on the island.

Nick Brick

Voiced by: Fred Raker (LEGO Island), Alan Marriot (Island Xtreme Stunts)

Nick takes passion for being a cop, one of his impressive abilities is his memory, in fact, he would remember telling you he has good memory in the first place. When The Brickster breaks out, he vows to be on him like "studs on a brick".

  • Catchphrase: "The thing that impresses most people is my memory."
  • Donut Mess with a Cop: Can be seen pigging out on donuts at the Metro PD Station. When catching the Brickster, eating donuts makes him drive faster.
  • Expy: His mannerisms and speaking patterns are closely based on those of Sgt. Joe Friday.
  • Heroic Mime: In the first game, Nick is very talkative as an NPC, but completely silent as the player character.
  • Only Sane Man: Downplayed since he is still really eccentric and a bit dopey, but nevertheless Nick is still arguably the most level-headed and mature person on the whole island. This is most prevalent in Island Extreme Stunts where he is one of the few characters who doesn't fall for the Brickster's lies on being reformed.

Laura Brick

Voiced by: Erin-Kate Whitcomb (LEGO Island), Dian Perry (Island Xtreme Stunts)

Laura believes that being a cop is about people and respect, only needing reason to solve conflicts but she does get tough when she needs to be when on the job.

The Infomaniac

Voiced by: Patrick Hagan (LEGO Island), Nigel (Island Xtreme Stunts)

  • Absent-Minded Professor: Poor fellow is plagued with forgetfulness.
    Infomaniac: Hi! Welcome back! Come on in! I have... something to do. I can't remember what it is, but feel free to look around!
  • Big Good: Or at least the closest there is to one, even with his eccentricities he is basically the island’s head honcho and almost always has an answer to any problem.
  • Eccentric Mentor: The Infomaniac is your guide to the world of LEGO Island and is always happy to give you tips and instructions... and yet, he's one of the most zany and eccentric residents of the island.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Subverted. The Infomaniac's appearance is modeled after Wes Jenkins, who provided the voices of a few characters... but not the Infomaniac himself.
  • King of All Cosmos: No seriously. The Infomaniac is essentially a god, being the creator of both LEGO Island and nearly everyone on it!
  • Spell My Name with a "The": THE Infomaniac.

The Brickster

Voiced by: David L. Lander (LEGO Island), John Guerrasio (Island Xtreme Stunts)

  • Big Bad: In each game, he executes a plot to deconstruct LEGO Island.
  • Blatant Burglar: The Brickster always wears a black Domino Mask and a white/black-striped shirt, even when he is supposedly "reformed" in Island Xtreme Stunts.
  • Blowing a Raspberry: He does this to taunt Pepper in the first game.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Falls under the Destruction sphere.
  • Domino Mask: The Brickster is always seen wearing a black mask over his eyes.
  • Dub Name Change: In LEGO Island 2, he is named "Kim Cool" in the Danish version, "Steinbrecher" (lit. "Brickbreaker") in the German version, "Casbric" in the French version, "Dondersteen" (lit. "Thunderbrick") in the Dutch version, and "Briccone" (lit. "Rascal") in the Italian version.
  • Evil Former Friend: To the Infomaniac.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: According to his bio in the LEGO Island Comic Adventures, the Brickster wishes that he was more like Evil Ogel, but he just isn't evil enough.
  • Jerkass: That said, while he isn't truly evil he is still a condescending and selfish sleaze with almost no redeeming qualities.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: Wears a Domino Mask.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In the bad ending of the first game, the Brickster actually seems to regret taking apart all the island's buildings once he surveys the results.
    Brickster: Its mine! All mine! Hahahahahaha! All mine! (Looks around at the destruction and crying people) Mine?
  • Obviously Evil: A man who dresses up like a burglar even when he isn't in jail. Taken to absurd to levels in Island Extreme Stunts where he claims to be good now and everyone except Pepper, the Infomaniac, and Nick Brick believes him, but is still very clearly up to no good given the Brickster's obvious sabotaging of Pepper's stunts and dropping unsubtle threats to him within earshot of everyone else.
  • Punny Name: His name is a portmanteau of "brick" and "trickster".
  • Spell My Name with a "The": He is THE Brickster.
  • Start of Darkness: When the Infomaniac told him his intention to build a second companion for them, the very idea drove him insane.
  • Thinking Up Portals: In LEGO Island 2, the Brickster can open a portal to OGEL Island and summon Brickster-Bots.

Nubby Stevens

Voiced by: John Debanard (LEGO Island), Brad Levelle (Island Xtreme Stunts)

  • Punny Name: Both their names refer to a certain key on the computer keyboard, sometimes known as "enter" and sometimes known as "return".
  • Put on a Bus: For unexplained reasons, Enter and Return did not appear in LEGO Island 2: The Brickster's Revenge. However, The Bus Came Back for Island Xtreme Stunts.
  • Those Two Guys: Enter and Return are always seen together, and they play off of one another for comedic shenanigans.

Studs Linkin

Voiced by: Terry McGovern (LEGO Island), Brad Levelle (Island Xtreme Stunts)

  • Jerkass: Is both a braggart and a really bad sport, even making excuses whenever he loses a race.
  • Punny Name: His name is a reference to the studs on a brick that link them together. Additionally, his father's name is said to be Hot Rod, a pun on the rockabilly song "Hot Rod Lincoln."

Voiced by: Bruce Robertson

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He does not appear in the sequels.
  • Donut Mess with a Cop: Can be seen pigging out on donuts at the Metro PD Station.

  • Punny Name: His name is a play on CD-ROM.

Captain Click

Voiced by: Patrick Hagan

  • Alliterative Name: His title and name both begin with C.
  • Cynical Mentor: Like the Infomaniac, Captain Click gives tips and tricks to the player. They are also both voiced by the same actor. However, while the Infomaniac is an enthusiastic Eccentric Mentor, Captain Click is very cranky, rude, and only tells you gameplay secrets so you'll go away and leave him alone.
  • Dem Bones: The game's manual and credits revealed that Captain Click was a pirate skeleton.
  • Eyepatch of Power: When Captain Click appears in the flesh... err, bone... in LEGO Soccer Mania, his eyepatch is his sole distinguishing feature from the other pirate skeletons on his team.
  • Ghost Pirate: Captain Click is the skeleton of an old pirate.
  • Posthumous Character: As a skeleton. There were plans for a spinoff showing his exploits in life that fell through.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: Given that you only hear his voice in LEGO Island, the fact that he talks like a stereotypical pirate is the only clue you get to his identity.
  • The Voice: Until his appearance in LEGO Soccer Mania, Captain Click only stayed behind his locked door and only his voice could be heard.

Mr. Super

Voiced by: Wes Jenkins

Mr. and Mrs. Pollywanna

Voiced by: June Foray

The Flying Legandos

Mrs. Jingle

Voiced by: Tamborine Bancroft

The Mechanics

Voiced by: Uncredited

  • No Name Given: Which is odd as they have a significant amount of dialogue unlike many other minor characters who are given names in the credits and manual despite having less dialogue.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Their entire dialogue during the tow truck mission:
    We've been waiting for you."
    "Now there's something to do."
    "We'll bring back the car."
    "We're not going far."
    "To pick up the tow."
    "So, it's off we go!"
    "We'll be right back!"
    "Follow us to the track!"
    "I told you we'd be back!"
    "It's up on the rack!"
  • Those Two Guys: Like Return and Enter, they are a comedic duo.

Characters who debuted in LEGO Island 2:

Darren, Rich Pickings, Steve Hen, and Rob Banks

Technician Bob

Voiced by: Alan Marriot (Island Xtreme Stunts)

Pete Bog

Super Station Master

Voiced by: Nigel (Island Xtreme Stunts)

  • The Cape: He is a brightly-dressed superhero who protects civilians from incoming trains by flying them off the tracks.

Brickster-Bots

The robotic minions of the Brickster, they are typically obnoxious pranksters who stir up trouble.

  • Dub Name Change: Since they are named after the Brickster, different language versions of LEGO Island 2 change their name accordingly, though it doesn't always match. The Brickster-Bot is called "Cool-Bot" in Danish, "Stein-Boter" (lit. "Brick-Bot") in German, "Robrique" (lit. "Robrick") in French, "Briccobot" (lit. a portmaneau of "rascal" and "robot") in Italian, and "Blokbotten" in Dutch.
  • Institutional Apparel: They dress in black and white striped prison shirts, just like the Brickster.
  • Mecha-Mooks: Until Island Xtreme Stunts, the Brickster's only henchmen were these robots.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Their name is hyphenated in LEGO Island 2, but written as "Bricksterbot" in ''Soccer Mania.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: They can be knocked out by throwing a pizza at them. Even if that doesn't work, they can dance themselves to submission if they listen to music.
  • You Are Number 6: In Soccer Mania, the Brickster-Bot players are simply named "Bricksterbot 1" through "Bricksterbot 6", unlike all the other uniquely-named characters in the game.

Cedric the Bull

The main villain of Knights' Kingdom, Cedric the Bull is one of the villains allied with the Brickster.

  • Adaptational Jerkass: While he was already the Big Bad of the Knights Kingdom 1 sets he originated from, he did have some redeeming qualities, such as him taking the orphaned boy Weezil under his wing and having a Freudian Excuse explaining that he wanted Leo's castle due to not having his own kingdom to rule. But here, none of those traits of Cedric exist. He has a castle of his own, which eliminates the purpose of why he was after Leo's, and he proves that he Would Hurt a Child in his battle against Pepper.
  • Bullfight Boss: In the Game Boy Color version of the game, in which he charges at you with a lance and you have to trick him into running into the walls of the castle.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • As with Mr. Hates, Mr. Hates was planned to have a larger role in LEGO Island 2 and become a recurring villain at OGEL Island, but this was cut from the game.
    • In the Game Boy Advance version, he only appears as a target in the custard pie-yed based game.
  • Dub Name Change: While his name is Cedric in most languages, it is changed to "Simon de Stier" ("Simon the Bull") in the Dutch version.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: In the PC and PS1 version of the game, he just randomly shows up, takes the page right when Pepper is about to trade the Bull's flag for it and challenges Pepper to a cannon fight, and after you defeat him he's never seen again. Nobody on Castle Island mentions him prior to his battle and it isn't until AFTER the fight that they decide to mention him if you talk to the soldiers. While Mr. Hates mentions working with Brickster, Cedric doesn't mention Brickster at all, making it seem he just decided to fight Pepper as a Lone Wolf Boss. This trope is averted in the Game Boy Colour version, which properly introduces Cedric as a cohort of the Brickster shortly before the battle.
  • Moral Myopia: He scolds Pepper Roni for shooting at him with cannons, all the while firing his own cannons at Pepper.
    Cedric the Bull: It's not fair! I should be the only person with cannons here!
  • Would Hurt a Child: He is the most aggressive villain in the LEGO Island series, firing cannonballs directly at Pepper Roni. In contrast, the Brickster is only interesting in deconstructing the island, and Mr. Hates only attacks Pepper's hot air balloon.

Bologna Roni

Pepper's Disappeared Dad. Left Pepper to the Brickolinis and has not been seen since. Originally debuted in the manual of the first game, but his only appearance is in the GBC version of LEGO Island 2.

  • Bold Explorer: Purported himself to be the strongest, bravest explorer on LEGO Island.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: As his claims have never been verified, he's just as likely to be this instead, as speculated by the LEGO Island manual.
  • Heroic Lineage: His parents (Pepper's grandparents) were traveling gourmets, and his ancestor, Rootin' Tootin' Roni, was a cowboy and early pioneer of LEGO Island.

Mr. Hates

The main villain of LEGO Adventurers, Mr. Hates is one of the villains allied with the Brickster.

  • Adaptation Name Change:
    • Sort of (it's always a confusing issue with this character). When LEGO Island 2 was released in 2001, this character was most commonly known as Sam Sinister (or Sam Sanister) in LEGO Adventurers, but this game goes back to using "Mr. Hates", one of his various Dub Name Changes from the Egypt subtheme in 1998. If you were an American LEGO fan and never read The Curse of the Mummy puzzle book, you'd be very confused why this character is suddenly given a completely different name.
    • Played more straight in the design document for DIG (an unreleased LEGO Adventurers-based sequel to LEGO Island), where he is named "Colonel or Baron von Brickoff of Buildovia". Unlike "Mr. Hates", "von Brickoff" was never a name he went by in the Adventurers series. Amusingly, the document claims that he often changes his name and story.
  • Adaptational Nationality: While the name "Baron von Barron" implies that he is German (and LEGO Racers gave him a German Funetik Aksent to go with it), Mr. Hates has a more British-sounding accent in LEGO Island 2.
  • Adapted Out: He does not appear in the Game Boy Advance version.
  • Breath Weapon: Not Mr. Hates himself, but he feeds his sauropod one of Papa Brickolini's sizzling tongue-melting hot pizzas to make it burp fire at Pepper's hot air balloon.
  • Constantly Changing Name: Invoked. After Mr. Hates' defeat, the Infomaniac wonders if he'll change his name, possibly referencing the character's infamous history of Dub Name Changes.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • As with Cedric the Bull, Mr. Hates was planned to have a larger role in LEGO Island 2 and become a recurring villain at OGEL Island, but this was cut from the game.
    • In the Game Boy Color version, Mr. Hates only makes a cameo as a minor NPC who tells Pepper to go away for bothering him, as well as a collectible card.
  • Dub Name Change: Despite being called "Mr. Hates" in the English version, he is named "Sam Sinister" in all non-English versions, though it is literally translated as "Sam Finster" in the German version. This is especially peculiar, considering that "Sam Sinister" was his most common English name at the time while "Mr. Hates" had been used in 1998 German Adventurers media and the Danish version of LEGO Racers; meanwhile, Johnny Thunder is the only other Adventurers character with a Dub Name Change in LEGO Island 2, and only in Spanish and German.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: In Dummied Out dialogue, Mr. Hates comments that hunting Pepper Roni is almost as fun as hunting dinosaurs.
  • Meaningful Name: In Dummied Out dialogue, Mr. Hates says he really hates Pepper Roni.
