  • Black Bead Eyes: The default eyes for each character are this, but they can be changed with character customisation.
  • Cartoon Creature: Only Swoop has a definite species, the others are much more vague.

Awww, isn't he just the cutest!

Sackboy (AKA Sackgirl/Sackperson)

The main character of the series. For tropes relating to his appearance in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, see here.
  • The Ace: So far he's has saved LittleBigPlanetnote  alongside Carnivalia and Bunkum, defeated Liquid Ocelot and the Metal Gear, killed a kraken, saved both the Marvel AND DC universes, defeated the Evil Doctor Porkchop, vanquished an evil sentient cake, saved The Muppets, blown up a space warden's space mech in space, and gathered the Creator Curators together for a carnival. And that's not even mentioning the 9 million fanmade levels!
  • Distaff Counterpart: Sackgirl, who only differs from Sackboy by Tertiary Sexual Characteristics.
  • Featureless Protagonist: He's a blank slate, until you add the features yourself with Character Customization.
  • Glowing Eyes: One of his costume items.
  • The Hero: As the main character of the series, he's saved the Imagisphere numerous times.
  • I Have Many Names: Also known as Sack Thing or Sackperson.
  • Nice Guy: A cheerful little chap who's always willing to help those in need.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: In a game where the main character is named Sackboy, there are a few costumes that ditch the "Sack" part.
    • The most glaring is the original Yellowhead, who is about as flat as a Paper Mario character.
    • Paperboy from LBP2. You'll never guess what he's made out of.
    • Carved Grumpy Bear from LBP3, a model of a bear carved out of wood.
  • Suddenly Speaking: Downplayed. Sackboy was completely mute in every other LittleBigPlanet game with two very minor exceptions (a faint whine when drowning, and a held grunt for the duration of the Hold to Retry! animation). In Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Sackboy doesn't regularly speak, but he's more vocal on the whole, shouting or grunting when executing his moves, or letting out brief lines like "Uh-oh!" when narrowly dodging hazards.
  • Wingding Eyes: In the second game and Vita game, there are the Dizzy Eyes, which actually spin around while being swirly (they only spin in LBP2).
  • Zipperiffic: He has a giant zipper down his front. (Okay, it's a normal-sized zipper, but it's proportionally huge to the three-inch tall Sackboy.)

LittleBigPlanet 3

The first of Bunkum's heroes, a four-legged, fast-running character from Manglewood.

The second of Bunkum's heroes, a size-changing character who lives in the caverns underneath the Ziggurat.
  • Big Fun: Big Toggle is much more mellow than Little Toggle.
  • The Big Guy: Big Toggle takes this role in the group.
  • Sizeshifter: His main shtick is changing from big to small and vice-versa.
  • Walk, Don't Swim: Big Toggle sinks down to the bottom of water and can do this.
  • Walk on Water: Little Toggle is so light he can walk on top of water.

The third of Bunkum's heroes, a bird who lives in Bunkum Lagoon.

LittleBigPlanet 2

    Larry Da Vinci
What-ho, Sack-Thing?

Larry Da Vinci

Voiced by: Robbie Stevens
The leader and founder of the Alliance and the Creator Curator of Da Vinci’s Hideout. He is a passionate, dramatic scholar who looks over the Alliance.

    The Negativitron
Voiced by: Jeremy Mayne (LittleBigPlanet 2), David W Collins (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale)
The main villain of the game.

    Avalon Centrifuge
Voiced by: Colin McFarlane
The second-in-command of the Alliance, but he thinks he's the leader.
  • The Ace: Zigzagged. Although he exaggerates his importance, Avalon is a skilled inventor who played a major role in stopping the Negativatron. He also calls Sackboy this in the most ironic way possible.
  • Break the Haughty: He gets himself kidnapped by The Negativatron after going on one of his long rants. Subverted during his rescue, where he still talks highly of himself despite being trapped in a cage.
  • Carpet of Virility: He has loads of orange chest hair, making him type 1, if only in his own mind.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He built all the Alliance's animal machines.
  • Insufferable Genius: He's a skillful inventor who can't help but brag about it.
  • The Lancer: To Larry Da Vinci. He challenges almost every decision Da Vinci makes, steals his spotlight at every opportunity, and has an ongoing rivalry with him about the most ridiculous things.
  • Large Ham: He is the epitone of this trope. In almost every cutscene he's in, he speaks in a loud, booming voice, and almost always will he Emphasize EVERYTHING he says.
    Clive Hanforth: Hello, Science Face.

  • Miles Gloriosus: He's actually not that good at fighting, as shown in the Cosmos where he gets captured. Twice.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: As if the "I Created Science" posters didn't tell you all you need to know.

    Victoria von Bathysphere
Years of building and baking down the plug hole!
Voiced by: Judith Sweeney
An inventor and baker who joins the Alliance, and later works as a Popit Professor.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: During a brief cutscene in Runaway Train, she hurls a cake at the Big Bad Negativatron when he tries to attack you.
    Victoria von Bathysphere: Shoo! Shoo!
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She appears in LBP3's Introduction level, before appearing as a Popit Professor later in the game. Downplayed since she's an existing character.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: She created the Alliance's Sackbots and a bunch of the experiments.
  • Mad Scientist: She has plenty of odd steampunk experiments in her lab. Averted as she isn't actually evil.
  • Mood-Swinger: She mood swings a lot, though less so in the third game. Word of God is that she has Bipolar Disorder.
  • The Smart Guy: Everyone in the Alliance is a creator, but her main role is to create Sackbots.
  • The Von Trope Family: The typical name for a Mad Scientist.

    Clive Handforth
And I thought my life had hit rock bottom when they told me about saturated fat!
Voiced by: Barry Meade
The depressed owner of the Factory of a Better Tomorrow. He joins the Alliance when the Negativitron invades.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Eve calls him “Calendar Man”.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Sackboy helping Clive free the Sackbots and defeat Copernicus encourages him to join the Alliance.
    Clive Handforth: Oh, thank you! You plucked me—yes, plucked me—from the very pits of despair and perched me once more atop the gilded throne of mid to upper-level management.
  • Cowardly Lion: He's terrified of danger and prefers to avoid it, but he still helps The Alliance defeat the Negativatron anyway.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He snarks when he isn't too depressed for it, especially towards Avalon.
    Clive: Avalon? The 'Face of Science' man? Oh, Marvelous.
  • Drama Queen: Justified, as his Factory was completely destroyed by the Negativatron.
  • The Drag-Along: He really only comes with Sackboy because his factory is destroyed.
  • The Eeyore: He's almost always gloomy, but he does try his best to help.
  • Lovable Coward: He’s constantly afraid, but it doesn't make him any less lovable.
  • Non-Action Guy: He doesn't fight. Even when the alternative, as in the first level of Eve's Asylum, is stay behind with the giant disembodied robot duck head.
  • Only Sane Man: He is the only Alliance member who is has his head completely screwed on right, and is the sole voice of reason among the team.
  • Oh, Crap!: Done in one cutscene when...
    Clive: I, er, I think we should be leaving.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Happens to Clive when the shrubs reveal him which it's not a Splash Canon.
  • Sour Supporter: He's pretty cynical, but joins the Alliance anyway.

    Eve Silva Paragorica
Voiced by: Jules de Jongh
The sixth member to join the Alliance, and the Creator Curator of Eve's Asylum for the Mentally Alternative. She is extremely optimistic, and always encourages people to look on the “bright side of things” even when the situation is unimaginably bleak. She’s very skilled with medicine and exceptionally caring for everyone, serving as The Heart for the team, even if she has a bit of a selfish streak.

When Clive and Sackboy help defend her tree from the Meanies, she joins the Alliance.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Not as much as other Creators, but she can be rather quirky.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: She often interprets whatever Dr. Higginbotham is rambling about.
  • Eyepatch of Power: She has an eyepatch and runs the Asylum.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: All the time. For example, she calls the Negativitron "El Negativitron Diablo."
    Eve: Es hora de GET OUT OF HERE!
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: She has one of these.
  • It's All About Me: One of her main personality flaws seems to be this, as when we first see her, she’s talking about how the patients “are nothing without my care, without my love.” She also claims she will only help the Alliance if they do something for her in return. Part of her Character Development is her outgrowing this.
  • Odd Friendship: The glamorous, caring, optimistic Eve seems to be the last person to befriend eccentric, hippie super-genius Dr. Higginbotham, and yet they get along like to peas in a pod.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite how dangerous or bleak a situation may be, she never loses her upbeat, can-do attitude.

    Dr. Herbert Higginbotham
Not wasting a moment, let’s blast off!
Voiced by: Ewan Bailey
The seventh and final member of The Alliance, and the Creator Curator of The Cosmos. He’s highly regarded throughout Craftworld, and is considered to be the greatest creator who ever lived. But he’s kind of a weirdo. He constantly spouts Meaningless Meaningful Words, eats socks, licks people’s eyeballs, and has a weird obsession with video games.
  • Absent-Minded Professor: The time where he forgot what he was doing in the middle of a battle comes to mind.
  • Ace Pilot: He is the only Alliance member who know how to pilot Huge Spaceship accurately. In his absence, Larry, Avalon, and Clive have to work together to fly it, and even then they barely manage to keep it in the air.
  • Alliterative Name: Herbert Higginbotham.
  • Big Eater: Most of his ramblings center around food.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He’s incredibly useful to have around, as he seems to be the only one skilled enough to repair or pilot Huge Spaceship, but 90% of what he says is simply inane drivel.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Even when cured of his mental illness, he is still pretty... out there.
    Higginbotham: I have been on a journey through layers upon layers of mindflowers. I was wrestling, and then I’m tumbling, and everyone’s smiling at me, except they didn't have faces so of course they weren't really smiling. Still, I marveled at the pleasant upholstery.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He’s a Cloudcuckoolander who, at first glance, seems to be just a senile old man, but he is much more capable than he lets on.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He rarely loses his cool, wearing a Zen-like expression and speaking in a serene voice. Even in total chaos.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He likes to eat socks .
  • Gadgeteer Genius: The biggest one in the game. It’s implied he built Huge Spaceship originally, and he was able to rebuild it in about a minute.
  • Ice-Cream Koan: Very prone to these.
    Higginbotham: I was eating a custard cream, man, when it bloomed into the perfect laugh of a baby. From one to another. Poof.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: He clearly has no regard for fashion. Just look at that tailcoat!
  • Meaningful Name: Herbert means “bright” (intellect-wise), or “famous”, and he is both.
  • Mr. Imagination: It is precisely his habit of disappearing into his imagination makes him such an incredible Creator, but it doesn’t do wonders for his social skills.
  • Not So Stoic: The only time in the game where he shows any strong emotion is when it is revealed that the Alliance inadvertently created the Negativatron, which clearly scares him.
  • Sixth Ranger: He's the last to join the Alliance.
  • The Stoic: He rarely ever shows any emotion, always in a state of serene calm. This is especially evident when The Negativatron is attacking Huge Spaceship again, and even during that he shows only mild surprise, calmly stating that it is likely Huge Spaceship will crash.
  • The Stoner: He certainly acts like one, as the infection seems to be a G-Rated Drug.
  • Talkative Loon: He really loves delivering his Ice Cream Koans. The cutscene "The Most Sense You'll Hear All Day" is pretty much nothing but him rambling.

  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: She's prone to odd threats.
    That Newton... I will smash his tiny bulb into a million teeny pieces and TRAMPLE ON EVERY ONE!!!!!!
  • Comedic Sociopathy: "Do you suppose you would survive if I pushed you off?"
  • Flowers of Femininity: Averted. She wears a large pink rose on her head, but she is the exact opposite of gentle.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She's on the side of good, but that doesn't make her any less bitter.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: She makes plenty of odd, creepy threats towards the heroes, but is clearly on the side of good.
  • Psycho Pink: Her dress is pink and the rose on her head is pink, but she has a very explosive temper.

  • Welcome to Corneria: Her threats stick in your mind because she repeats them so much.

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita

    Sean Brawn 
Voiced by: Dave Mervik
The greatest hero in the Imagisphere...or at least he thinks he is. He often ends up in trouble thanks to technical difficulties, not planning ahead, and having a short attention span.

    Mrs. Sunshine 
Voiced by: Sarah Hadland
A clown who's been lost in the Spooky Mansion for ages.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She has tons of imaginary friends that she made up to keep her company while she was lost in the Spooky Mansion. These imaginary friends in turn have what she believes to be imaginary friends, who are actually real people.
  • Sad Clown: She's completely dead inside, to the point where her laughing is actually a plot point.

    The Hollows 
Evil little puppets that cause distress throughout Carnivalia. They're the game's main villains.

  • Perverse Puppet: They're empty, evil marionettes.

    The Puppeteer 
Voiced by: Alexander Morton
Seemingly the main antagonist of LittleBigPlanet PS Vita. Once the greatest entertainer in the Imagisphere, The Puppeteer eventually became lonely, always being behind the scenes, and the quality of his shows began to suffer. Eventually, people started booing him, causing him to throw his puppets away and run off. At first, it's thought that he's returned and turned evil, but it's later revealed that the Hollows have locked him up, and are pretending to be him.
  • Big Bad: Subverted, he's actually a victim of his own creations.
  • Evil Puppeteer: Again, subverted. the Hollows locked him up and committed evil acts in his name.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Once again subverted. It's thought that he's turned evil, but he actually just created the Hollows to be his friends, which naturally goes horribly wrong.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He created the Hollows while trying to make new "Puppet Friends".
  • Mad Scientist: His hubris and skills at creating end up creating monsters that run amok.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: All the Creators think he's evil, but actually he only created the Hollows while trying to make new friends.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He only appears physically in a single cutscene, and his pre-recorded voice is heard in another, but he is one of the most important characters in LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.
  • Walking Spoiler: At first you're lead to think he's just the game's Big Bad, but his true role in Carnivalia's backstory is spoileriffic.

LittleBigPlanet Karting

Sackboy: A Big Adventure

Voiced by: Dawn French
Craftworld's sole member of the Knitted Knights, and narrator of Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
  • Cool Old Lady: Gives Sackboy a ton of useful advice in his quest to stop Vex.
  • Eyepatch of Power: She has a black eye patch with red straps.
  • Face Death with Dignity: The "death" part is subverted at the end of the game. When she says she can finally rest, she really does mean "rest".
  • Mentor Archetype: She is the mentor to Sackboy.
  • Retired Badass: She used to be a member of the Knitted Knights back in her prime and went on countless adventures before her old age forced her to retire.

Voiced by: Richard E. Grant
Lord of nightmares and Big Bad of Sackboy: A Big Adventure, he seeks to create the Topsy-Turver to cause the Uproar and create pure bedlam across Craftworld.
  • A God Am I: He declares himself one after he steals the Dream Orbs from Sackboy.
  • Badass Cape: He's a powerful Magical Clown, and he wears a cape with long, almost tentacle-like scalloped shapes.
  • Big Bad: Kidnaps nearly every Sackperson except for Sackboy to use to build his Topsy-Turver.
  • Blatant Lies: He repeatedly states that the other Sackfolk are happy to work on his Topsy-Turver; the glimpses we get of them show that's clearly not the case.
  • The Chessmaster: Building the Topsy-Turver would've taken longer without an army of enslaved Sackfolk, certainly, but he didn't strictly need it. What he did need was a motivator for The Hero to collect Dream Orbs that would power the Topsy-Turver, and carefully strung Sackboy along for this purpose by "failing" to capture him and "carelessly" dropping his Topsy-Turver plans when he was monologuing. Once Sackboy realizes he's been had, it's too late, and the game becomes a race to stop the Topsy-Turver before it creates Vex's Crapsack World.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Downplayed. Vex is an evil Nightmare Weaver who wants to sow fear and destruction all over the world. His name means "to annoy." While it is a word with negative connotations, it's still a pretty big understatement.
  • Glasgow Grin: Invoked. Vex has stitches all across his mouth, but he has a few more stitches extending past his mouth on both sides, resembling a Glasgow smile.
  • Happy Harlequin Hat: As a jester-like creature, Vex's head is actually shaped like one of these. His head has two floppy points, each with a bell at the end. The red and blue stripes all along his body help with this effect.
  • Interface Screw: One of his attacks in the Final Boss battle is to steal two of Sackboy's lives and convert them into collectibles that expire after a set amount of time.
  • Magical Clown: Vex is a jester with a variety of magical abilities. He can fly, summon portals, teleport Sackboy into an Amazing Technicolor Battlefield, and more.
  • Monster Clown: Vex, The Lord of Nightmares, is a creepy creature resembling a large, twisted version of Sackboy's fabric doll species. He has a very distinct court jester motif, including red and blue stripes, jester shoes, and a Happy Harlequin Hat.
  • Nightmare Weaver: Vex is the Lord of Nightmares. He spends the game trying to build the Topsy Turver, a machine that will let him spread fear and chaos.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: He repeatedly gets in other people's faces, usually to scare them. In the cutscene before his third boss fight, he picks up Sackboy and squeezes him.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: With his Laughably Evil demeanor and simplistic boss fights, at first glance Vex seems like a typical children's show villain that can't actually accomplish anything despite his godlike powers... and then The Reveal happens where you learn he was throwing because Sackboy was doing his job for him. Once that's out of the way, his subsequent fights are much less forgiving.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Inverted. Vex is both colored and associated with red and blue (and also has a little yellow in his design as well), but he's the villain.
  • Recurring Boss: He is fought four times in the game, including as the Final Boss. The first three fights use a platform of conveyor belts in a pocket dimension, while the fourth occurs over two more traditional arenas inside the Topsy-Turver.
  • Sigil Spam: His V-shaped unibrow is plastered over everything that has to do with him.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Played with. Vex does occasionally tap into typical Evil Is Hammy behavior like Evil Gloating and Evil Laughs, but overall, he usually has a soft, calm voice when speaking. This is especially noticeable when compared to most other Monster Clowns in fiction, who are much more boisterous.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: The second he appears, he gleefully kidnaps all the terrified Sackfolk (except Sackboy) to work on his machine that will spread nightmares and chaos across the world. He then spends the rest of the game staying one step ahead of Sackboy and claiming the captive Sackfolk are "having fun" working on the Topsy-Turver. And then there's The Reveal that he let Sackboy steal his plans just so Sackboy could gather everything he needed for him...
  • We Can Rule Together: Before his second boss fight, he tries this with Sackboy, claiming that his recreation of the world with the Topsy-Turver is inevitable, and therefore it would be easier to go along with it than try and stop it. Needless to say, Sackboy's not having any of it. Considering that Vex was purposefully letting Sackboy gather up all the materials he needed, he probably knew Sackboy would refuse.
    Vex: You hurt my feelings! Now I'm going to hurt you.
  • Wham Line: "Maybe the plans you stole will tell you what to do next. You know, the plans I 'carelessly' dropped?"
