Stilwater Residents

    Richard Hughes 

Alderman Richard Hughes

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/richard_hughes_headshot.png
Played By: Clancy Brown
Appearances: Saints Row
A highly corrupt mayoral candidate from Stilwater, and the main antagonist in the final part of the game. He gets blown to hell with the Protagonist in the final mission.
  • Affably Evil: When he finally shows up, he acts friendly to the main character and even offers him a glass of expensive champagne while going over his plans. Even when he has his goons pull guns on Playa with the intent to kill him where he stands he doesn't drop the polite tone and promises that he'll be thanked in his acceptance speech for doing his dirty work.
  • Asshole Victim: Hughes tries to have the Playa shot to death by his bodyguards. Julius decides between the Playa and Hughes, he'd rather just blow them both up with the bomb he installed in the yacht.
  • Bald of Evil: He's a corrupt politician with male pattern baldness.
  • The Chessmaster: After the Saints had wiped every gang in the city, Hughes had Marshall Winslow killed by the Playa so he could win the mayoral election. Doing so, he would use the Saints' responsibility for most of the crime in Stilwater to justify salting the entire Saint's Row district in the hopes of completely wiping out gang violence.
  • Death by Irony: Blown up on the very same boat he intended to kill the Playa on. And while the Playa survives, Hughes doesn't.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: This line basically sums up his Hidden Depths, both profound and rotten:
    Hughes: As you get older, you quickly learn there are only two types of people in this world. Race, money, gender, none of this matters. At the end of the day, you're either a winner, or a loser... for me to be a winner, I have to level your neighborhood, and salt the earth.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Especially since he's voiced by Clancy Brown.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of the first game. His plan all along was to use the Saints to get his redevelopment project for Saints Row funding.
  • Hate Sink: Despite his Affably Evil nature, Richard is condescending, manipulative, corrupt, and willing to use underhanded tactics to gain power. He has his campaign opponent eliminated, uses the death of Chief Monroe to distract negative attention from him, and gloats about salting Saint's Row to the ground to solve gang violence, regardless of displacing poorer residents during his meeting with the Playa.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He orders Chief Monroe to arrest Julius in order to use the Playa for his dirty work. After this inevitably leads to Monroe's death, he meets the Playa under the pretense of having the Saints pardoned for their crimes and Julius released. Instead, he plans to pin Stilwater's gang violence on the Saints as an excuse to demolish the district.
  • Mayor Evil: For a day or so anyway.
  • Salt the Earth: He explicitly calls his Evil Plan for the Saints Row district this.
  • Scare Campaign: By using the Saints to do his dirty work.
  • Sleazy Politician: He's backed by gang enforcers and a corrupt police chief and orchestrates the death of Mayor Winslow to make sure he wins the election.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Hughes' posters can be seen all over Stilwater, is backed by the (equally as corrupt) Chief Monroe and Ben King, has a monument dedicated to him downtown, and his campaign is funded by Rollerz's mastermind William Sharp. In the second game, he's still praised as a victim of the gang violence that plagued Stilwater and has several memorial statues dedicated to him.
  • Wealthy Yacht Owner: The last mission of the main story of the first game begins with him inviting Playa to his private yacht for a meeting.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: A variant and his Famous Last Words. Just as he gloating to the Playa, he keeps hearing beeping and wonders what the sound is before the boat goes boom.

    Jane Valderamma 

Jane Valderamma

Jane Valderamma in Saints Row 2...
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/valderama.png
...And Jane Valderamma in Saints Row: The Third.
Played By: Lauri Hendler
Appearances: Saints Row | Saints Row 2 | Ultor Exposed | Saints Row: The Third | Saints Row IV | Enter the Dominatrix

"Tonight's top story: Award-winning reporter kicks some ass!"

Jane initially hires the Saints to create sensational news for her to report on. If the player mugs fifty people, she'll volunteer to be an 'embedded reporter' in the gang war, and become available as a homie. In the fourth game, she DJs K12, and reads female lines of literature opposite Zinyak on his radio station, probably because Zinyak forced her to do so.


  • Casual Danger Dialogue: Especially in the third game during a mission where you invade her set and have a massive gun-battle in her studio. Her reaction? She just calmly changes to the new topic the Boss wants her to discuss while snarking all the time.
  • Lemony Narrator: As the DJ for the simulation's dubstep radio station.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: Signs off every broadcast in the third game with some variant on "this has been Jane Valderama, with your X news."
  • Odd Friendship: With the Saints.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Speaks mostly in a very flat, monotone, American accent. Except when saying her own last name when signing off, where she rolls the R slightly.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The developers have been inconsistent with spelling of her surname, even within the same game. In the second game, it's spelled "Valderama" in the homies listing and "Valderamma" in the subtitles. In the third game, it's spelled "Valderamma" in the assassination request, "Valderrama" in the news broadcast shown in one of the endings, and "Valderama" in the credits.
  • Stunned Silence: After the Boss declares Steelport a seceding city-state, Jane stares at him for half a second before awkwardly smiling at the camera, unable to comment as she usually does.

    Wong Sheng Tai 

Wong Sheng Tai

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hitman___lost_in_translation___wong.png
Mr. Wong in Saints Row...
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_wong_in_saints_row_2.jpg
...And Mr. Wong in Saints Row 2.
Appearances: Saints Row | Saints Row 2
A Chinese businessman and mobster, he owns a tea house and enlists the Saints' help in bumping off people that have wronged his family. He reappears in Saints Row 2 to help out against the Ronin and act on his grudge against the Akujis.
  • Arch-Enemy: Kazuo Akuji. He also despises Shogo because he caused the death of his beloved dog, Sadie.
  • Ascended Extra: Was in both games, but played a major role against the Ronin in Saints Row 2.
  • Completely Unnecessary Translator: He has a translator follow him around, but he doesn't need him as he can understand and speak English (albeit with a heavy accent) and even shoots his translator in the leg when he mistranslated one of his words.
  • Gratuitous English: Speaks mostly Mandarin Chinese, while having an interpreter translate.
  • The Load: In Saints Row 2, his only function is to provide Akuji with a target to go after, and to shrug off his Saints bodyguards for a one-on-one fight (which simply requires that the Boss rescue him before he gets himself killed).
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Before their fight, Kazuo boasts that Wong should be thankful that his death will be merciful compared to what he has planned for the Saints. Wong's response?
    Wong: "You talk too much."
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Favors a .44 Shepherd compared to every other major character choosing automatics and blowback pistols.

    Helmers

...And Helmers in Saints Row 2.
Played By: Keith Szarabajka
Appearances: Saints Row | Saints Row 2
  • Dirty Old Man: In the second game, he appears to be much older than he was in the first game and has gray hair.
  • Pimp Duds: In the second game, he wears a pimp coat.

    Legal Lee 

Legal Lee

Legal Lee in Saints Row...
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/appointed_defender_legal_lee_johnny_gat.png
...And Legal Lee in Saints Row 2
Played By: Phil Morris
  • Ambulance Chaser: When called as a homie, he'll show up in an ambulance and sometimes asks if the player heard one driving by when left idle.
  • Amoral Attorney: He's an attorney who openly works with street gangs and criminals.
  • Ascended Extra: Just another source of money in the first game, but in the second one, he gets a minor role in the overall story and becomes a homie after completing certain side missions.
  • Catchphrase: "We spell justice with a dollar sign."
  • Motor Mouth: He speaks noticeably faster than the other characters.
  • Punny Name: Legal Lee. Legally.
    • Then there's his firm, Legal Lee's. Legalese.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: In Gat out of Hell, Legal Lee serves as Dane's lawyer.

    Stefan 

Stefan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stefan_in_impressions_during_all_the_kings_men.png
Appearances: Saints Row
A snooty, whiny, effeminate businessman who owns the Impressions clothing store in the first game and also the only person who knows the code to get inside Tanya's penthouse.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Needless repetition? Stefan likes that. Especially when doing commercials for Impressions, the clothing shop where you shop for clothing, you see.
  • Eye Scream: Stefan would much rather have this inflicted upon Stefan than have to see Stefan's clothing be worn by poor people. Poor in this case being the people still paying hundreds or thousands of dollars for Stefan's clothes during one of the store's many minor sales events.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Stefan constantly strokes Stefan's ego on the radio, despite merely being the proprietor of a clothing store.
  • Third-Person Person: Talking in the third person? Stefan likes that. What Stefan does not like is people buying Stefan's clothes at a discount.

    Manuel Orejuela 

Manuel Orejuela

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/close_up_of_manuel_orejuela_in_the_meet_the_lopezes_cutscene.png
Played By: Carlos Ferra
Appearances: Saints Row
The representative of the Colombians. He acts as liason between them and Los Carnales.
  • Bald of Evil: He is a drug dealer after all.
  • The Cartel: Manuel is a member of a powerful Colombian cartel and their official liaison in Stilwater.
  • Dirty Old Man: Making the moves on Luz Avalos.
  • Expy: Of Frank Lopez. Both are mustachioed Hispanic slimeballs with balding hair, a taste for white suits and wearing more than one necklace at a time, and ties to the local drug trade. Manuel even has a similar facial structure to Frank.
  • The Ghost: In Saints Row 2, he's mentioned by Luz, having made her his drug mule after finding another woman.
  • Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist: Played straight for the most part. However, an error loading his cutscene model can render the shirt as blank white.
  • Heel–Face Turn: For a given value of "Face", at any rate; once a deal was worked out and Angelo shows up to kill him and the Saints that were at Turbulence, he and the Colombians drop the Carnales in favor of 3SS.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: This sleaze tries to charm Luz in front of Angelo and backhandedly insults Hector's leadership abilities. Were he not tied to the Colombians, the brothers would've put him in a body bag. This is also why the Saints don't kill him. If they did, the Carnales would lose their partnership and any future weapon and drug supplies, but the Colombians would've taken an express trip to Stilwater to make the Saints' lives a living hell for killing their liason.

    Chicken Ned 

Chicken Ned

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chicken_ned___full_body_and_face.png
Appearances: Saints Row
A mascot for Lik-A-Chick, a fast-food franchise specializing in chicken. Select areas in Stilwater have graffiti reading "For a cluckin' good time 555-2445". Dialing this number will make him available as a homie.
  • Burger Fool: He works for Lik-A-Chick.
  • Goofy Suit: The Lik-A-Chik mascot uniform is a chicken with the company's logo on the overalls.
  • Joke Character: What he's intended to be, given his car, his default weapon, and everything else about him.
  • The Load: If you're serious about bringing him along, know that he can't use firearms and is stuck using his baseball bat.
  • Mascot: This is his job. Some NPCs in Saints Row 2 mention that he was added to the "Mascot Hall of Fame''.

    Samantha 

Samantha

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samantha_in_cutscene.jpg
Appearances: Saints Row
A stripper at Tee'N'Ay. The Playa meets her being photographed by a paparazzo in the "Camera Shy" cutscene, and is solicited by her almost immediately after he enters the club. Clearing the Vice Kings instance of Escort unlocks her as a homie.

    Sophie 

Sophie

Appearances: Saints Row 2
A French mime who drives one of the Septic Avengers in Stilwater. She is also a hardcore socialist revolutionary who loves spreading the revolution through the contents of the Septic Avenger.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has some pretty funny dialogue depending on what the player is doing.
    (While the Boss is spraying feces into a swimming pool.) "They should be happy, we added more floaties for the children to play with!"
  • Enemy Mime: She is dressed and made-up for the part. However, she talks plenty. She is an enemy to all bourgeois capitalism, and also has a chance of being the enemy Septic Avenger during the FUZZ sidequest.
  • Enemy Mine: She only works with the Boss during Septic Avenger because of how much they both hate Ultor. As mentioned above, she could be a possible enemy the Boss has to deal with during FUZZ.
  • French Jerk: Complete with an outrageous French accent, being a mime, wanting to use the Septic Avenger against almost everyone and everything, and frequently having the urge to smoke.

    Monica Hughes 

Monica Hughes

Played By: Tasia Valenza
The wife and widow of Richard Hughes. She is Mayor of Stilwater in Saints Row 2 and a U.S. Senator in Saints Row: The Third. She is the one who spearheads the STAG Initiative.
  • Ascended Extra: Plays a very minor role in the second game, but became one of the major antagonists of the third game.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She makes a very brief appearance in Saints Row 2 where she is the boss of the "Septic Avenger" activity, wanting to get back at Ultor.
  • Enemy Mine: In the second game, she hires the player to spray human feces all over the place in her grudge against Ultor. In the third game, she works against the Saints.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Her appearance and role as a high-ranking politician in Saints Row: The Third are based on Sarah Palin.
  • Slave to PR:
    • As a politician, she tries to keep public opinion of herself positive.
    • She also believes this is the way ("hearts and minds") to win the war against gangs and uses Nyte Blayde to aid STAG's public image. Cyrus disagrees with her.
    Kia: Nyte Blayde's the face of STAG? Why don't you just put someone in a fucking deer suit?
    Monica: Hearts and minds will win the war, my dear.
    Cyrus: Shock and awe wins wars, Senator. Authorize the Daedalus and this will all be over.
    • Crosses over with Pragmatic Villainy in that if you take the route of disarming the bombs, she points out to Cyrus that his forces declared martial law and destroyed half the city, while the Saints foiled a terrorist plot to blow up a monument. She may not like the Saints, but she knows when a battle isn't worth fighting.
  • Sleazy Politician: Cheerleaders can be heard saying "It's okay, we won't lose, we'll just cheat like Mayor Hughes!"
  • The Unfought: She is a behind-the-scenes antagonist to the Saints.

    Laura 

Laura

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drug_trafficking___suburban_bliss___laura.png
Laura in Saints Row...
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/laura_in_purgatory_widescreen.jpg
...And Laura in Saints Row 2.
Appearances: Saints Row | Saints Row 2
A loving wife, mother, and drug dealer whom Playa helps out in the first game, after which she becomes a homie. She returns in the sequel to help the Saints against the Sons Of Samedi.
  • Action Mom: You can even call her up as a homie in the first game. She brings a shotgun with her.
  • Anti-Villain: Aside from the whole drug thing, she's one of the most moral people in the city. When Boss breaks her out of jail, she even leaves a nice note.
  • Ascended Extra: In the first game, she's not much beyond a supporting character, but in the sequel, she plays a larger role in helping bring down one of the rival gangs.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She wasn't OK with killing cops in Saints Row, and will often voice her displeasure if an officer or FBI agent goes down. She seems to have outgrown this mindset in Saints Row 2.
  • Happily Married: To her husband, Tobias.
  • Housewife: Though that doesn't stop her from dealing hard drugs on the side to support her family. In the second game, this catches up with her and she is sent to prison, which the Boss then breaks her out of for an early Samedi mission.
  • Innocently Insensitive: In the first game, she mentions getting into drugs because her "colored" friend told her about it, doesn't want to deal drugs downtown because she isn't poor, and assumes the Playa has several children based solely on them being in a gang.
  • Karma Houdini: Goes to heaven when Tobias goes to hell, despite them leading the same life of crime.
  • Rich Bitch: Has a bit of this in the first game.
    "I'm afraid to go into the city alone... because, well... I'm not POOR..."

    Tobias

Tobias in Saints Row...
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/20201109_233232.jpg
...And Tobias in Saints Row 2.
Played By: Brandon Keener
Appearances: Saints Row | Saints Row 2
Like his wife Laura, he deals drugs in the first game and helps the Saints take out a rival gang in the sequel. He is a pilot, and he drives the Saints' getaway helicopter in the last mission of the game.
  • Ascended Extra: Just an angry drug dealer in the first game, but vital to the Saints in the second.
  • The Aggressive Drug Dealer: Though he chills out a lot by Saints Row 2.
  • Back for the Finale: Appears after the last mission of SR2, flying Boss, Pierce and Shaundi out of Ultor HQ.
  • Berserk Button: You don't ever steal from him, and you certainly never skim off the top. Billy learned this the hard way.
  • The Comically Serious: When his piloting credentials are questioned: "Does it look like I'm joking?"
  • Does Not Like Shoes: It can be really easy to miss, but his character model never has shoes on.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: When we're first introduced to him, we see him blow the head off his partner for skimming from him. During deals, his dialogue can go from calm to berserk within seconds. He mellows out in the second game, but theres still traces of it there.
  • Happily Married: To his wife, Laura.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: In the first game he even drives a NRG V8 with a special hippie decal not seen on civilian versions of the car. In the second game, its available as a customization option.
  • No Indoor Voice: When he has a gun or he's piloting a helicopter, at least. He doesn't raise his voice otherwise.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: In Gat out of Hell, Tobias is a husk that serves as a playable character in one of the activities. He presumably dies when the Earth was blown up.
  • The Stoner: In the first game, he acts like he's on a mix of pot and PCP. In the second, he seems like he just smokes a lot of pot without the PCP.
    • Sometimes when beginning the Drug Trafficking activity with him in the first game, the player can hear him snorting something behind the wheel before calmly starting the van and taking off.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Never seen with a shirt on in either game.

    Samson 

Samson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chop_shop___supply_and_demand___samson.png
Samson in Saints Row...
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/20201109_232700.png
...And Samson in Saints Row 2.
Appearances: Saints Row | Saints Row 2
A car mechanic and demolition expert. He regularly works with the Saints but is never stated to be a member.
  • Demolitions Expert: If the Saints need something blown to smithereens and pipe-bombs, grenades, and RPGs are a no-go, they go to him.
  • The Klutz: He trips on a step and drops the bomb needed to destroy the Stilwater Penitentiary generator in "File In The Cake", which accidentally starts the timer.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: He's always seen in a sleeveless shirt.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He was never seen or heard from again after "File In The Cake".

Steelport Residents

    Professor Genki 

Professor Genki (ゲンキ博士)

Played By: Yuri Lowenthal
The Host of Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax, the most popular TV show in Steelport. He also has three servants: Angry Tiger, Sexy Kitten, and Sad Panda, each of whom have their own sidequests.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: He considers a large number of his fans to be this, to the point where being around them for too long will cause a mission to fail.
  • Ax-Crazy: Professor Genki can be found in the city as a surprisingly powerful NPC that goes around killing random people. Even back during the promotional live action skits his bloodlust is very clear when a man eating himself alive and a woman being eaten alive by rabies-addled men in dog suits pleases him. This mania continues in the Genkibowl VII DLC and its violent events.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: The main game drops several hints that he is much more than a silly game show host while the Genkibowl VII DLC makes him out to be a badass on the same level as Johnny Gat. The announcers even mention that he actually used to test out all the games himself, but had to retire because the clean up crew refused to deal with the messes he left in his wake!
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: It is uncertain what he considers to be ethical. The only thing that he clearly considers unethical is the killing of pandas.
  • Bonus Boss: In the third and fourth games, he has a very low chance of randomly appearing in Steelport. He's one of the strongest enemies in those games, but he drops a lot of cash when he dies. In Gat Out of Hell, Genki appears when you max out your notoriety meter. He's still absurdly strong. Killing him gets you The Ark of the Covenant, the Wrath Deadly Sin weapon.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: He bears a permanent one. Borderlines on Slasher Smile as well.
  • Dark Messiah: The live action Webisode seem to suggest this and so does the Genkibowl VII DLC.
  • Deadly Game: Combination of the other participants trying to kill you and the course having numerous DeathTraps. It's basically Everything Trying to Kill You in a parody of Japanese gameshows.
  • Death Is Cheap: No matter how many times you kill him when he randomly shows up, he'll still show up again. This is not a case of Gameplay and Story Segregation either: when you kill him as part of the main story of Saints Row IV, Zach and Bobby simply say that Genki's "down, but not out."
  • Disproportionate Retribution: According to his publicist in Genkibowl VII, if you look at him in the eyes, you'll wake up in a prison camp in North Korea.
  • Enigmatic Minion: In Saints Row IV. He signed himself and his hosts up to the Zin empire willingly (or Zinyak approached him, it's left vague) so he could continue his Murder Time Fun Time events with the superpowers you can get in the simulation, and even shows up as a boss on several occasions. But winning his games does damage the simulation, and he is quite generous to the Saints with his various toys. Whether he's The Quisling, a Trickster Mentor, or in it for shits and giggles without any loyalties or plan either way is ambiguous.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Shooting pandas is considered unethical and gets you a penalty.
  • Game Show Host: In the same vein as Takeshi's Castle, but with lethal obstacles.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He is a fusion of a human professor and a cat.
  • Kill It with Fire: His personal car comes with multiple built-in flamethrowers, charged up by running over people.
  • Made of Iron:
    • It takes a lot of firepower to bring Genki down. Having Playa's Respect level maxed out and infinite grenades and explosives is practically a must to kill Genki.
    • Saints Row IV takes it Up to Eleven, when Genki has superpowers.
  • Mad Scientist: Definitely plays the part, and if he did invent the Octopus Gun and Manapult, then he really is one.
  • Mascot: He is the unofficial mascot of Saints Row: The Third. The player can have homies dressed up like him as well.
  • Metal Slime:
    • In Saints Row: The Third, he occasionally appears wandering the world as a mascot and is borderline Immune to Bullets. When killed (eventually), he drops anywhere from $100K up to $300K - almost as much as the raw reward of all plot missions combined. Killing him doesn't prevent to meet him again.
    • Averted in Saints Row IV. A wandering, respawning Genki can still be encountered and fought in the game, but he merely is a slightly tougher than average mook and no longer drops an obscene amount of cash when killed.
  • Religion of Evil: He is the head of one.
  • Was Once a Man: He used to be an ordinary human professor before he fused with his cat.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: For all his awesomeness, a satchel charge placed on him will cause him to run around with arms flailing about like any other NPC. Running him over with a vehicle and leaving it on top also works.

    The Genki Girls 

The Genki Girls

Professor Genki's own personal harem of showgirls and assistants. They appear in the Genkibowl DLC and become homies that the player can call up once they complete their activities. Each girl has a different personality and characteristics to go along with their animal motifs.

  • Action Girl: They can handle guns pretty well and kick just as much ass as the other homies the player has.
  • Ms. Fanservice: The game seems to be aware of this, all three of them can be called up as homies anytime after the DLC is over.
  • Stripperiffic: Their outfits seem to consist of little more than underwear tailored after their animal of choice.

Angry Tiger

  • Disproportionate Retribution: She apparently stabbed a stagehand in the neck with the leg of a chair... and all just because he accidentally spilled some coffee on her.

Sexy Kitten

  • Cool Car: Her pink kitten DLC vehicle.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her game "Sexy Kitten Yarngasm" involves causing massive destruction... with a giant ball of yarn that the Boss can somehow drive or steer with a remote control.
  • Meganekko: One of the only homies in the series to wear glasses.

Sad Panda

  • Guilt-Based Gaming: When dismissed from the party she sometimes says "Super saaaad!" before leaving.

    Burt Reynolds 

Mayor Burt Reynolds

Played By: Burt Reynolds
Appearances: Saints Row: The Third
"Burt Fucking Reynolds!?"

The renowned actor who also happens to be the mayor of Steelport.

  • As Himself: Burt Reynolds as Burt Reynolds.
  • Badass Mustache: Burt's trademark.
  • Dirty Old Man: Seen making out with a hooker in his introduction.
    • Subverted with Kinzie. Apparently she was with him, but he couldn't live up to her expectations.
  • Memetic Badass: In-universe example. Apparently has outsmarted Paramilitary groups before and is even feared by Loren. Viola tries to prime Boss prior to meeting the Mayor by flat out stating "Don't fuck with the mayor", a warning which is quickly brushed off by Boss and doesn't become an issue as The Boss all but bows down in reverence upon realizing who he is.
    • And apparently had beaten Angel in Murderbrawl a few years back. 'The Cutter can come out of nowhere' indeed.
  • Noodle Incident: Have Oleg and Burt as Homies at the same time and they'll mention having fought each other in Moscow. Angel? They'll talk about their time in Murderbrawl.
  • Porn Stache: Goes without saying.
  • Ultimate Authority Mayor: As Viola notes, you don't fuck with the mayor. Indeed, if you do destroy the Zombie Apocalypse virus as he ordered instead of keeping it for the Saints, you gain the daily ability to have him remove all notoriety (gang and police) with a phone call.

    Jenny Jaros 

Jenny Jaros (Princess Kwilanna)

Appearances: Gangstas in Space
Played By: Michelle Ruff

Boss's unfortunate co-star in the "Gangstas In Space" DLC who plays his love interest in the movie they are filming.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Not just her, but her entire race as well!
  • Action Girl: Holds her own in all of the fights she and Boss engage in. (It may be just a movie, but the actors are using lethal weapons.)
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Her Pre-Mortem One-Liner about Andy.
    Jenny: I'm tired. I'm tired of him trying to kill us, I'm tired of him being mean, and I'm tired of his stupid fucking scarf!
  • Ascended Fangirl: She is ecstatic to be working with the leader of the Saints and starring alongside them in Gangstas In Space.
  • Ax-Crazy: It turns that Jenny has... anger management issues.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In the first third of the DLC, she is nothing but polite and friendly even when she gets treated like crap. Then in Act 2, she kills a bunch of girls who were set to replace her, and in act 3, she kills the director who did nothing but insult her from the very start.
  • Cute and Psycho: Because of the Boss' influence, she evolves from a meek actress to this. But while the Boss only wanted to teach her how to stand up for herself, she takes their lessons way too seriously and decides she better acts like the Saints and kill everything she's angry with. She actually goes so far, even the freaking Boss is afraid of her by the end.
    Boss (Very uneasy): Huh, Jenny, you got crazy eyes again.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After an entire movie of abuse from the asshole director, she runs him down with a freaking space ship!
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Okay, what Andy got he deserved, but killing the actresses who were hired to replace her in a movie? That may have been a step too far, Jenny...
  • Distressed Damsel: During the first mission only. Once you free her, she becomes a valuable partner.
  • Extreme Doormat: Though the Boss helps her with this over the course of the DLC.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: She plays a purple-skinned space babe in the movie.
  • Meaningful Echo: "I'm gonna kill that son of a bitch!"
  • Morality Pet: The Boss is generally quite supportive of her, often encouraging her to stand up for herself and not take Zhen's bullshit.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: When called as a homie, she will often talk about how happy she is now that she can just kill anyone who crosses her instead of grinning and bearing it like she used to.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: Plays one in the "Gangstas In Space" movie, but in real life, she's just a "normal" badass. (She does keep wearing her space princess costume when called as a homie, though.)
  • Purple Is Powerful: To the extreme. Everything from her skin to her hair is colored purple and she can easily blast through the blue "alien" mooks that appear in the DLC, even though they should be on even terms since she is supposed to be the same race as them. It helps that she has a One-Man Army backing her up, but she still gets a high number of kills on her own without any help from Boss.
  • Ray Gun: Both Jenny and the Space Amazons (The enemies for the DLC, which are supposed to be the same alien race as she is.) use this as their weapon of choice. You don't get to use them outside of the second mission, however. Jenny does use some other ray gun when you call her as a homie, though.
  • Teach Her Anger: The Boss wanted her to grow a backbone. They succeeded. Then it turned out Jenny has anger management issues...

    Andy Zhen 

Andy Zhen

Played By: Yuri Lowenthal
Appearances: Gangstas in Space
The Jerkass director for the "Gangstas in Space" movie.

  • Asshole Victim: From the moment he first appears, you're waiting for his comeuppance.
  • Bad Boss: He has no qualm with killing his actors and crew off to make the movie look more realistic.
    Andy: What'd you expect, it was easier to use the extras to fly these things. Saves money and they were just expendable workers anyway.
  • Berserk Button: He gets extremely pissed if the player keeps shooting his cameramen. In fact, this is the only way to get him upset enough to yell at Boss.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He is killed by Jenny when she rams him with the alien ship.
  • Jerkass: He constantly belittles and berates Jenny.
  • Large Ham: He actually gets some of the most hilarious dialog in the DLC.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Whoo boy... it's one thing to treat one actor better than another, but this guy doesn't get that praising the Boss, and then immediately turning around and hurling abuse at Jenny right in front of the Boss, isn't a good idea. Even when she starts making death threats at him and trying to run his ass down with a giant spaceship, he's more offended that she's gone off-script.
  • Yes-Man: To the Boss. His mistake is that the Boss is aware there's a line between cooperating and straight-up ass-kissing.

    Jimmy Torbitson 

Jimmy Torbitson

Played By: Yuri Lowenthal
Appearances: The Trouble With Clones
An amateur Mad Scientist whose experiments with recovered Saints DNA go horribly wrong in the DLC pack The Trouble With Clones, requiring Pierce and the Boss to intervene.

  • Butt-Monkey: To the extent that even Pierce gives him crap:
    Pierce: "Sit the fuck down, Jimmy! Leave this to the professionals!"
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He is mentioned two times out of his proper DLC.
    • In Genkibowl VII opening cutscene (chronologically the first DLC), one of the news displayed by the news ticker tells that "local boy Jimmy Torbitson, age 17, wows record crowd at the Steelport Science Fair."
    • In the main storyline, he appears as a fanboy who ask the Boss to sign his issue of a Gangstas in Space comic book during a cutscene in the "Nyte Blade's Return" mission. Since the Boss doesn't seem to recognize him, The Trouble With Clones is obviously meant to happen later in the game's timeline.
  • Expy: When the game has some official ties to [adult swim], it's hard not to listen to the character's voice and not think of The Nerd.
  • Extraverted Nerd: Socially inept, undoubtedly, but confident enough in his work that he actually tries to clone the late Johnny Gat, of all people, and then has the guts to go directly to the Boss and spill everything he knows after it goes wrong.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Just look at what he did with a can of Saints Flow... god only knows what he could do if he had access to some high-end lab equipment...
  • Hollywood Nerd: Type 1, complete with spittle-spewing lisp and Nerd Glasses.

    Johnny Tag 

Johnny Tag

Appearances: The Trouble With Clones
A lumbering brute who was cloned from the DNA of Johnny Gat. He sets off on a massive rampage across the city, forcing Boss and Pierce to track him down with his creator, Jimmy Torbitson.

  • Call-Back: Brings up "stripper poles" a couple times.
    • He also mentions Shogo Akuji, who was a major antagonist during the Ronin arc of the second game. Apparently, he remembers Aisha being killed, but not Boss and him taking revenge on Shogo.
    • Not to mention that he has the same hairstyle as Johnny Gat did in the earlier games.
  • Came Back Wrong: This thing is NOT Johnny Gat, that's for damn sure...
  • Cloning Blues: Shares a few of the original Johnny's interests and looks a little bit like him, but is otherwise a completely different individual.
  • Hulk Speak: See Came Back Wrong...It's like Johnny, with a room temperature IQ.
  • Made of Iron: Being turned into a brute only made Johnny tougher, and he was already extremely tough anyway!
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Well, last name at least.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: While he is a Brute-type character like Oleg, he doesn't have the same intelligence. The fact that they're a clone of Johnny Gat and a Brute means that he's set anyway, though.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Doesn't appear in IV at all and never even gets mentioned. It's most because Tag's presence may have caused some oddities when Gat's rescued.

Zin Simulation Residents

    Paul 

Paul

Appearances: Saints Row IV | Enter the Dominatrix
A giant can of Saints Flow energy drink that was created by the simulation to torture Pierce in his simulation. Near the end of the game, Kinzie manages to reprogram him into an ally and he helps the Saints crash the simulation.

    Roddy Piper 

Rowdy Roddy Piper

Played By: Roddy Piper
Appearances: Saints Row IV
"You don't call Roddy for help. He comes when he's needed." (Said immediately before getting the ability to call Roddy for help.)

A professional wrestler and B-movie actor who did a film with Keith David.

  • As Himself: He's basically there to re-enact that film he did with Keith.
  • Badass Normal: When called as a homie, he fights without guns or superpowers.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Does this to Keith to snap him out of the simulation Zin trapped him in.
  • Man in a Kilt: As expected. And as in Real Life, fictional Roddy won't tolerate anyone making fun of it.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's not made clear if he is the real Roddy Piper or a simulation AI. Likely the latter, since one of his idle quotes has him realizing that he might be dead after Zinyak blew up the Earth, which is Harsher in Hindsight due to the real-life Piper dying two years after the game came out.
  • Painting the Fourth Wall: His reason for why he's there? He needed the money.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Justified since he actually is a wrestler.

Other Characters

    Colombians 

Colombians

Appearances: Saints Row
An unnamed Colombian drug cartel backing Los Carnales. Manuel Orejuela is their representative and acts as a liason between the Carnales and the Colombians.
  • Dirty Coward: The Columbians you see in "McManus Says Hello" make a run for the ship they presumably sailed to Stilwater on the minute the Playa fires a shot. They're set to "Neutral Gang" and programmed to flee and despawn once out of sight.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": This cartel was only identified by nationality.
  • The Ghost: Manuel making Luz a drug mule for the Colombians indicates that they're still active in 2011.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: They supply the Carnales (and later the Saints) with weapons and drugs, but they never directly participate in Stilwater's gang wars.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Again, for a given value of "Face"; once a deal was worked out and Angelo shows up to kill Manuel and the Saints that were at Turbulence, he and the Colombians drop the Carnales in favor of 3SS.
  • Light Is Not Good: Manuel and the rank-and-file wear white clothes and... well, they're not exactly nice people.
  • Palette Swap: Their rank-and-file are simply Los Carnales "killas" in white clothes.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: No mention of them was made again after Saints Row 2.
