Character list for Perfect Hair Forever. This is currently at only a starting state, and contributions will be welcome.
- "Uncle Grandfather, I want perfect hair forever."
A teenager suffering from a very early baldness who wants to aquire legendary "Perfect Hair Forever." He's the central protagonist.
- All There in the Manual: At no point in the series is his full name ever said.
- Actually, Uncle Grandfather says his full name in the first episode, but his accent makes it hard to catch it.
- Crossdressing Voices: Gerald is obviously voiced by a woman, and a rather sexy sounding one at that. This parodies the highly feminine voices given to Bishōnen characters.
- Dull Surprise: This is his normal voice, almost all the time. Likely intentionally.
- Meaningful Name: A pun on Dragon Ball Z, and a nod to the state of his hair.
- Prematurely Bald: He is a teenager with a combover. Just look at the main page image.
- Would Hit a Girl: He has a sword fight with Brenda in the first episode for some reason. He loses.
- Yandere: In the final episode, he goes to some... great lengths to try to get Brenda to fall for him.
- "Stay true to the pass, and beware of...you know, the guy."
A parody of Master Roshi, he is supposedly the mentor to Gerald, yet spends most of his time at his apartment asking Brenda to do lewd things for him.
A (mostly) silent girl who resembles a loose parody of Sailor Moon and serves as a parody of anime fanservice. She mainly stays by the apartment with Uncle Grandfather.
She's called Brenda throughout the series, but according to Young Man in the final episode, her name is actually Margaret.
- Action Girl: Can sword fight at least, and is able to beat Gerald but not Young Man.
- Dangerously Short Skirt: Parodied in that it's so short it doesn't even cover her properly at all.
- Easily Forgiven: Uncle Grandfather quickly forgives her for starting the Cat-Bun wars.
- Kinky Spanking: Subject to this by Young Man.
- Hair Decorations: She's got some nice ones... hair decs, I mean.
- Ms. Fanservice: Brenda is the anthropomorphic personification of typical anime fanservice directed at young men, which is fitting considering the show's status as an Affectionate Parody.
- Odango Hair: Sports this style.
- Panty Shot: She's the trope given flesh. It's hard not to notice it.
- The Quiet One: Almost never talks. She does once — in Japanese, when initiating the Cat-Bun Wars. She also makes occasional sound effects like "HI-YAH!!"
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: At no point does she seem to object to anyone being able to see her in her state. Even when it comes to Uncle Grandfather's blatant advances. Judging by the topless women at The Stinger of the third episode, and the Naked Apron used later by Gerald's mother, it just seems that female nudity really isn't objectionable in whatever could be considered their world.
- The Smurfette Principle: She's basically the only female character of note in the show.
- Stripperiffic: Just look at her. The skirt part of her sailor fuku ends above her waist, leaving her gorgeous ass clad only in a thong for the entire world to see.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink. If her eyebrows are any indication, it's dyed.
- "You don't understand!"
A strange man in purple who claims to be the "King of Animals."
- Catch-Phrase: "You don't understand!" The final episode adds "She loves me!", "In eight minutes!", and "Her name is Margaret!"
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": While never referred to by name, he's either called Young Man or King of the Animals.
- Friend to All Living Things: To some degree. He has a bunch of animals following him around, but he gets into arguments with them a lot.
- Jerkass: He rubs his marriage with Brenda in Gerald's face in the final episode. Is it any wonder Gerald kills him?
- Killed Mid-Sentence: "You don't underst—"
- Killed Off for Real: Possibly, in the eighth and final episode. He seems to be shot by Gerald, but it's left ambiguous as to if he was really killed or not.
- Would Hit a Girl: Spank one, as a matter of fact.
- "Do the la la la la la la la..."
A hot dog that is supposed to aid in Gerald's quest for hair.
- Animate Inanimate Object: A floating hot dog with a face.
- Fairy Companion: A parody of such, he serves as one to Gerald.
- Verbal Tic: Says "Do the la la la la la..." a lot. In fact, it's most of his dialogue. The final episode implies that he's gotten sick of it."Do the la la la la la.........This is stupid."
- "We're either very, very, very much in danger, or very, very, very much...safe."
The closest thing the show has to a primary antagonist, Coiffio is a man with a large amount of hair that slowly changes its color. Becides that, he looks like a more fit Uncle Grandfather.
Him saying "EFF" is used to censor most f-bombs on the show.
- Anime Hair: He sports some of the best anime hair ever.
- The Bad Guy Wins: The final shot of the series shows his box army running amok in the Tunaminium.
- Big Bad: Supposedly.
- Cats Are Mean: He's been described as the "evil controller of cats." He even has a minion in the form of a cat with wings.
- Characterization Marches On: He was fairly neutral towards Model Robot in the first episode, whereas afterwards he suddenly gets a lot more hostile, calling him "Model Asshole" and eventually ordering him to self-destruct.
- Dodgy Toupee: Turns out that impressive Kaleidoscope Hair is just a wig.
- Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: How he talks.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has hair that gradually changes colors. And lots of it.
- "I HAVE SEX WITH DOGS! WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?!"
A large tree that lacks an indoor voice and formerly worked for Coiffio.
A living tornado with a split personality. Terry is more benevolent, while Twisty is fairly violent towards others.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His more malicious personality, Twisty, has red eyes. Terry has blue.
A small robot that serves as one of Coiffio's henchmen.
Another one of Coiffio's henchmen, this is a man in a cat suit that appears to be remarkably more sane than the other characters.
- BFG: He has one when he's manning the convenience store.
- Cat Girl: Gender inverted, being a cat man. His real nature is played with. He obviously looks like a guy wearing a cat suit, but he denies it whenever it's brought up around him.
- Cats Are Mean.
- Helpful Mook: He tells Gerald how to get to Tuna Mountain.
- Minion with an F in Evil: Cat Man really doesn't give a damn about much of anything, most of all his mook duties.
- Only Sane Man: He's well aware of the fact that he's in an anime parody (or thinks he's just in a really weird anime), and would try to opt out of the storyline as much as possible. As early as the second episode, he develops a complete disdain for "all you anime people and your stupid journeys", and does his best to abstain from actively participating in the plot, preferring instead to...hang out at his house, and work at a convenience store. Like a sane person.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Works at a convenience store when he is not doing Coiffio's evil bidding. Or rather, when he is not blatantly ignoring Coiffio's evil bidding. Or rather, while he is blatantly ignoring Coiffio's evil bidding.
A self-proclaimed "Anime God," he is a giant flame who appears from time to time.
Space Ghost makes occasional appearances.
- Bears Are Bad News: Just ask him.
- Butt-Monkey: He's usually getting killed or injured. He's mauled by a bear in his first appearance, and then he's shot after drunkenly stumbling into a network executive room.
- Who Writes This Crap?!: His cameo in the final episode has him observing the show from his studio. He didn't like what he saw.
