Hero Characters

This section lists characters that are good guys, or generally have good intentions, even if those intentions don't always work out as planned.

    Luke Skywalker 

Luke Skywalker

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3553ef0e5ad5bf0e416e466c8e11e0f7.png
Sometimes humans have a funny way of showing love, Kay.
Canon: Star Wars
Canon Point: Post The Empire Strikes Back
Code Name: NA
Powers: Force sensitive

The hero of the Rebel Alliance, Luke started his life as a humble farmboy. That all changed as he discovered his destiny as a Jedi and began to learn the ways of the Force. He was dragged into the world of Mask or Menace at the point where he learned of his family history, and was struggling with accepting it as his new reality. Considering he was followed by his father and found himself surrounded by other Dark Side followers, coupled with Han being Han, it's a wonder he hasn't completely lost his mind yet.


  • Adorkable: Luke still maintains a bit of his naivete, to the point where the natives seemed to think that was all there was to his personality, leading to an obnoxiously cheerful clone.
  • Archetype: Just because he's in a different reality, doesn't mean he isn't still a textbook hero.
  • Artificial Limbs: It's obvious he's missing his real right hand, as the placement of the imPort tattoo ends up higher up on his arm than normal.
  • Badass Adorable: He's usually sweet and kind to the people around him. Threaten him and his friends, however...
  • Cool Sword: Luke was in the middle of building his own lightsaber before he arrived in Mask or Menace. He's since completed it.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Shows this every time someone presses his buttons.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: While Luke could have easily gotten a weapon from Han, or just about anyone, he decided against it in favor of completing his lightsaber.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • Experienced this when he realized that not only was his father in the world, but also that he was from the point before he became the hulking monstrosity that is the Darth Vader he knew.
    • Experienced this again when Kylo Ren revealed that he was his nephew, because of Leia's marriage to Han, and that he turned to the Dark Side because of a failure in Luke's teachings.
  • Heroic Willpower: Displays this constantly, especially when it comes to Han's 3 AM texts.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Han, to the point where many native fans drop off the Heterosexual part.
  • Humble Hero: The only time he mentions his accomplishment against the Death Star is to reassure the Rogue One cast that their mission was successful.
  • Incompletely Trained: His canon Jedi training was lacking, to the point that when he found out how Jedi used to be raised and trained, he wondered if that was deliberate.
  • Last of His Kind: Subverted in game, but also that he doesn't feel comfortable calling himself a Jedi yet.
  • Nice Guy: Definitely one of the nicest guys in canon, and possibly in Mask or Menace as well.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He may be small, but he has the potential to be one of the more powerful characters in game.
  • Rage Against the Mentor: Discovering how Jedi used to be raised and trained makes Luke question Obi-Wan and Yoda's teachings, to the point where he wonders if they were just teaching him to be a weapon to destroy the mistakes they made with Anakin.
  • Tell Me About My Father: Once he became more comfortable talking to him, Luke was more than anxious to learn about his father straight from his own mouth.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Calls Han out often, though mostly over his penchant for texting him at three in the morning. This happened again when Han was painting his house eye-searing colors.

    Han Solo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_han_solo.png
Tell me the Falcon hasn't gotten scratched.
Canon: Star Wars
Canon Point: Return of the Jedi, before being freed from the carbonite
Code Name: NA
Powers: Talk Shit Get Hit, Millennium Falconization, Carbon Freezing

The smuggler turned rebel and now inadvertent imPort hero, Han was initially dragged into the world of Mask or Menace after being frozen in carbonite by Darth Vader, and was very quickly followed by what, to him, might just be half the galaxy from all over the timeline. He's completely fine, though. Totally. It's not like the revelations of the future have hit him hard or anything, and he definitely is adjusting to being planet-bound really well.


  • Badass Normal: Considering that two of his powers are completely useless in combat and the last one is not something he likes to use often, he still counts.
  • Canon Immigrant: While mainly from the new timeline, because the Han Solo movie hasn't been released by the time of his app, much of Han's backstory (what little of it isn't vaguely handwaved) has been lifted from the Legends timeline. Notably, the events of Death Troopers is treated as canon.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Carries a gun and rams zombies with his taxi.
  • The Ferryman: Has a job as a taxi driver.
  • The Gadfly: Once painted his house eye-searingly orange for kicks.
  • Good Is Not Nice: While he's softened up, he's still a smuggler and a more pragmatic person than other heroes.
  • Heroic BSoD: Hit one after Kylo Ren's revelation of his parentage, and is still feeling the repercussions from it.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Luke and Lando. The fans have taken notice of the former and taken off the heterosexual part, much to their shared disbelief.
  • Hold Your Hippogriffs: The way he uses words like kriff and kark make it very clear what he's substituting them for.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: He's far more heroic now than he was in A New Hope, but he still retains a cynical outlook on things.
  • Odd Friendship: Has struck up a few, notably with Elena Fisher and Steve Trevor, his roommates, and Jon Snow.
  • Properly Paranoid: Didn't trust Heaven Scent when they started asking for samples from imPorts. Some time later, guess who's responsible for clones going berserk?
  • Ramming Always Works: Resorts to this during a zombie crisis in De Chima, ramming hordes of zombies with his taxi.
  • Seen It All: After getting dragged to another world and meeting people from the past and the future, as well as the chaos of the Swear-Ins and the game in general, there's not much left that can truly faze Han.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Shares Luke's sympathy for Kylo Ren, mostly because of the revelation that Kylo Ren is his future son. Not so sympathetic towards Anakin Skywalker.
  • Timey-Wimey Ball: He's starting to get a headache from his castmates coming in from varying points in the timeline. Time will only tell how he'll react if anyone from the Legends timeline shows up and throws it all into question again.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Not wholly at the level of himself thirty years on just yet, but he makes an effort to be kind to new arrivals, and has been known to take people out for drinks.
  • What a Piece of Junk: His Millennium Falconization ability essentially ensures that every car he steps into is this trope.

    Veronica Sawyer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes_veronica_sawyer.jpg
I'm from 1989, this was the chic thing to wear then.
Canon: Heathers the Musical
Canon Point: Post-Dead Girl Walking (Reprise), pre-I Am Damaged
Code Name: Dead Girl Walking
Powers: Slurpee Generation, Voice Mimicry, See the Me Inside of Me

A young girl from a small town in Ohio who got inadvertently caught up in a series of pranks Gone Horribly Wrong. Veronica was dragged into the game just as she'd lugged a bomb out to her school's football field to spare everyone in her school from an explosive death, and since then has been trying her best to pretend to be a normal teenager, albeit one with superpowers and a status as a minor celebrity. Time will only tell if this will succeed.


  • Dark and Troubled Past: Underneath the eighties aesthetic and snark is a truly horrifying amount of emotional damage. Incidentally, an ability of Veronica's allows her to see the Dark and Troubled Past of others, at the cost of showing them hers. The worst part is, this power is tied directly into her emotions, so if she's too upset or angry she's liable to start seeing things. So far, she's only told Jyn about any of it.
  • Odd Friendship: Develops a close one with her housemates Kaytoo, Jyn, and Cassian, especially with Kaytoo, having taught him to swear. Outside of them, she's also pulling together a small group of friends her age, which includes Utena, Brendan Frye and Archie Andrews, among others.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted when she crosses paths with Veronica Lodge. Ironically, Veronica Sawyer is no stranger to people with the same names, and even notes in her internal narration that they'd just need one more Veronica.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Had a clone during the clone plot that went by Vee, whose Alpha Bitch tendencies were much, much worse than Veronica's.
  • Sanity Slippage: The player has noted that Veronica's ghosts, for ease of playing her, are hallucinatory.
  • Stepford Snarker: There's an implication in some of her snider comments that she's hiding something.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her signature color is blue. That being said, while she is trying, she's not exactly the gentlest person.

    Cinders 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_cinders_dress_full.png
"I knew this night would change everything… but I had no idea things would change this much."
Canon: Cinders
Canon Point: After the Grand Ball
Code Name: Cinders
Powers: Before Midnight, Fire Affinity

The protagonist of Cinders. Despite being from yet another Cinderella story, she doesn't often act the part of a fairy tale maiden. She ended up in Mask or Menace right after the night that was destined to change her life forever. Although jarred by the change, she adjusted quickly. After a brief time working for Lucifer Morningstar (yes, that one), she ended up inheriting his bar, Revīvēscere. Although violence frightens her, she's not above using her abilities to protect herself or others.


  • Ambiguously Bi: Hit it off with the prince in her world, but also flirts with Persephone on occasion.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Empathetic and sweet, she is nonetheless fully capable of hurting people with her powers.
  • Deconstruction: She tends to do this to fairy tales in general, pointing out that the girls in them aren't very proactive.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance: She really doesn't understand modern drinking laws, and considers sixteen to be a reasonable drinking age (although she'll turn a blind eye to folks younger than that if she likes them).
  • Elemental Hair: Of the "fire wielding redhead" variety.
  • Everyone Looks Sexier If French: Her "real" name (which was invented for the setting), Gabrielle Lancret, implies her to be the medieval fantasy version of this.
  • Fiery Redhead: Har har. Jokes about her powers aside, however, she's an aversion, being more calculating and deadpan than the trope name.
  • Fractured Fairytale: She's from one, with her "fairy godmother" being the town witch.
  • Genre Savvy: Knows very well what is expected of fairy tale maidens like her.
  • Gorgeous Garment Generation: One of her abilities allows her to switch between her standard rags and her ballgown.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She prefers wearing purple over other colors.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her ballgown is rather revealing, and her usual wardrobe often emphasizes her waist, neck, and chest.
  • Playing with Fire: Her abilities allow her to control, generate, and manipulate flames. She's also immune to fire.
  • Plucky Girl: She directly asked the Devil for a job. It worked out well for her.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: She's a version of Cinderella, and is not the usual blonde-haired, blue-eyed variety.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: The literal version, but she also pities Inanna after what they did.

Anti-Hero Characters

This section is for characters that are morally ambiguous or are good guys that don't act the part.

    Tohru Adachi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ad0_base0_8.png
Oh right. Tohru Adachi is a murderer of women.
Canon: Persona 4
Canon Point: Post Ultimax
Code Name: Uranus (in the Constellation)
Powers: Persona, sharpshooting, enhanced endurance

A side character turned antagonist turned questionable protagonist in his canon, Adachi arrived in the world of Mask or Menace in 2015, and has been struggling to find his place in the world ever since. He's voiced no desire to return to his own world (for the obvious reasons), and does his best to serve others, working as a Private Investigator whose clientele largely consists of natives. He still struggles with this, however, as his ability to socialize and understand social situations is terrible at best. He has also been struggling to find who he is as a person, and struggles often to understand how he feels about his own personality.


  • Accidental Murder: He's admitted that his first murder of Mayumi Yamano was this, though also that he intentionally killed Saki Konishi after the fact.
  • The Aloner: Many of his threads start out with him being by himself, or working on his own, and other characters interrupt him.
  • The Atoner: He stuck with a role in law enforcement, even though he was working for himself, for the soul purpose of him fulfilling his promise that there would be no more murders.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He came in with his canon work suit. Lampshaded when it was revealed it was the only suit he owned, and he had to be forced to buy another one.
  • Beneath Suspicion: While characters suspected that Adachi wasn't exactly the most morally straight character, no one suspected the depth of his crimes until they were revealed by Goro Akechi.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: This often comes out more in network posts, where no one can punch him for being himself. Where he's usually a nice person on the outside, his jerkass personality comes out every now and then.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: It comes up often that he's pretty smart, but he has almost zero motivation, mostly when it comes to taking care of himself.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: When he first arrived, it was his intention to try and make sure Johnathan Crane was more properly punished for his crimes by getting close to him and outing the depth of his misdeeds. That ended up shifting to Dooku and his Constellation when he realized it was a much greater threat.
  • Death Seeker: His sense of self preservation has eroded over the years, causing a few characters to call him out on being a little too eager to throw himself into situations where it's very likely he could die.
  • The Ditz: More true than not, as he's relaxed more into his goofy personality as his real personality. He still plays at it to push suspicion off of him.
  • Entitled Bastard: He's admitted that he had it pounded into his head that his hard work in his past lead him to having an entitlement complex. He's struggling past this, but it still happens.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He has a very difficult time processing it when someone is nice to him, often believing people have an ulterior motive for their kindness.
  • Evil Counterpart: Shares a lot of similar traits with Yuuri Katsuki, including a fondness for Viktor Nikiforov that drives him crazy because he doesn't understand it.
  • Evil Is Petty: Has admitted that his motives for murder were petty as hell.
  • Glass Cannon: Adachi's powers are really strong and useful, but he's really easy to take down when you get past them.
  • It's All About Me: He has a lot of trouble understanding how people are affected by his actions, and instead focuses on how it makes him feel.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: 90% of his interactions usually lead him to being a massive jerk at some point, but his intentions are usually kind.
  • Moral Sociopathy: He works as a Private Investigator to make up for what he did not out of a sense of right and wrong, but because it was the best way to follow through with the rules he set up for himself in canon.
  • Oh, Crap!: After he was outed for his past deeds.
  • Shock and Awe: His new Persona dropped the wind attacks, but kept the lightning attacks.
  • Smug Snake: That overconfidence didn't disappear entirely.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Adachi would still slip into this when he lost control of his powers, usually due to his emotions running high.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Unofficial, but a good way to describe his relationship with the Persona 5 team.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Subverted, as cabbage isn't actually his favorite food. He still eats like he's on a budget, however, often leading to lampshading by other characters.
  • Unreliable Narrator: The story from his point of view doesn't exactly paint him as much of a monster as he was; only one person got the whole story.
  • Villain Has a Point: Sums up his relationship with Dooku, who often echos Adachi's feelings from canon. It doesn't mean he likes what he has to say, though.
  • Vomiting Cop: Has admitted he still has trouble around violent crime scenes and has been sick in the past.
