Team Khanivore

    Sonnie 

Sonnie

Voiced By: Helen Sadler

  • Badass Gay: She's a lesbian, in addition to being tough, confident and merciless.
  • Butch Lesbian: Sonnie is plenty beautiful, but she doesn't present a particularly feminine appearance in her style of dress.
  • Defiant to the End: Even as she lays mortally wounded with most of her head crushed, she taunts Dicko and Jennifer. However, it's subverted in that it's not the end for Sonnie: she's alive within Khanivore, which is her main body from which she controls her human form.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She walks around barefoot.
  • Emergency Transformation: After being ripped apart by her kidnappers, her consciousness was placed into Khanivore permanently.
  • Feels No Pain: Sonnie appears to not even realize she's walking barefoot on broken glass, probably because it's just her Remote Body.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her gang-rape at the hands of an "estate gang" has filled her with enough rage to always win in the beast fights. It's then subverted. Sonnie herself dismisses this as nonsense, and the truth is far simpler and more logical: Khanivore is now her real body, and in every fight, her life is on the line.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Sonnie is a fairly masculine name.
  • Had To Be Sharp: The reason she fights and wins so often is because if she loses, she dies for good.
  • Rape as Backstory: She was kidnapped by an "estate gang" who gang-raped and beat her.
  • Remote Body: While most of the beasts function as this during fights, Sonny inverts this — having had her consciousness implanted into Khanivore and controls her otherwise brain-dead human body via an implanted chip.

Khanivore

Voiced By: N/A

  • Confusion Fu: It fights by tiring out its opponents and constantly keeping on its feet, never staying in one place for long and striking from a distance.
  • Combat Tentacles: Its tail splits into four spiked tentacles it can use to walk around on or as very potent weapons.

Other Characters

    Dicko 

Dicko

Voiced By: Time Winters

  • Big Bad: He's the corrupt owner of the fighting ring and conspires to murder Sonnie after she rejects his offer.
  • A Dick in Name: His name is Dicko and he is a big jerkass.
  • Evil Brit: Downplayed since everyone in this episode is British, but he’s still definitely a bad guy.
  • Evil Cripple: Walks with a limp and uses a heavy cane for support. The sound the cane makes always proceeds him.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Dicko puts on a gentlemanly facade, but he struggles to keep it up and the facade itself is mostly unfiltered smugness.

    Jennifer 

Jennifer

Voiced By: Hayley McLaughlin

    Announcer 

The Announcer

Voiced By: Braden Lynch

  • Large Ham Announcer: As befitting someone with his job; he's good at getting the crowd riled up.
