The characters in the crossover fanfic, Pokemon Masters of Azeroth.


Core Five (Trainers)

Gary Oak

  • Character Development: Done prior to his first appearance. Before the story’s start, he had the arrogance beaten out of him by a brush with death.
  • Dragon Rider
  • Functional Addict: Arcane magic is highly addictive. How he deals with this after the end of the story is left to the reader’s imagination.
  • The Hero
  • Advertisement:
  • Heroes Want Redheads: His feelings toward Misty.
  • More Hero Than Thou / More Expendable Than You: Often his reasoning is that he’s just another Glass Cannon, Misty can theoretically resurrect him, and she’d be safer with Ash or one of the other less-squishy folk protecting her than if the mage was protecting her. He makes several of these sacrifices, but being a lucky bastard, he manages to survive anyway.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Simple Staff: Being a mage, he uses staves as his main weapon. Until he gets his hands on the Infinity +1 Sword Quel’Delar.
  • Squishy Wizard / Glass Cannon

  • Undying Loyalty: He is fiercely loyal to his friends. Since they need each other in order to survive (especially since he relies on Ash to protect him and Misty to heal him), this is justified.
  • Write Who You Know: The reason he’s a fire mage is not only because it works for the plot, but because fire mage was, at the time, the only class-spec combination the author knew well enough to write as a main character.

Misty Waterflower

Ash Ketchum

James Morgan

Jessie Wilkes

  • Casting a Shadow
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Jessie uses curses, hellfire, black magic, and summons demons. She fights for the good guys.
  • Only in It for the Money: While she technically is in it for defeating the Lich King, she repeatedly expresses a desire for gold rather than questing for other reasons.
  • Squishy Wizard
  • The Chick: Jessie has very little personal usefulness before or after outland (where her knowledge of demons is important), though she has her moments such as when she saved James from a ghoul, and when she befriended Sylvanas and the undead Forsaken. Otherwise, she’s mostly just extra firepower.

The Other Party Members

Starwisp Windsong

Zaraia Pentalon


Sir Zeliek

The Naxxramas Raiders

Rex Smith

  • Black Knight: Technically, black-and-red knight. Still, his armor does follow an unusually villain-like color scheme, considering he’s a paladin.
  • Chivalrous Pervert
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He’s far from evil. He’s just arrogant, is all.
  • Hero of Another Story: His team has clearly had plenty of adventures of their own, and only happen to get involved with the main characters later in the story.
  • Knight In Sour Armor
  • Lady Killer In Love: With Wendy, who may or may not return the feelings. This does not stop him from being a shameless flirt with all the other girls his age.
  • Light 'em Up
  • The Rival: To Gary, at least to some extent.

Wendy Harris

Mary Walker

William Roberts


Kroll Ghoulripper

  • BFS: His weapon of choice.

Lorien Shadowgrave

  • Knife Nut: Her daggers are Poisoned Weapons, no less, and she enjoys finding ever new and creative ways to poison her enemies. Yes, this is a hero. Cross another villain stereotype off the subversion list.

The Other Heroes

Vaku Stormcaller

Rocman Spiritwalker


Anando Pentalon


  • Flat Character: With so many characters to establish the personalities of, someone was bound to get the short end of the characterization stick. Iridi was that unlucky soul.
  • The Quiet One

Victoria West

Tomas Carlton

Gaznick Geartrapper

Rosa Baker

Selma Anvilguard



  • Arch-Enemy: To Sir Zeliek.
  • The Dragon: Figuratively. He plays this role, characterization-wise. In terms of difficulty and threat, Sindragosa is more of a Dragon than he is, in more ways than one.
  • Our Liches Are Different


The Lich King
