Main Characters

    Scott Pilgrim 

Scott Pilgrim
"I'm in lesbians with you"

Played By: Michael Cera

Dubbed By: Hervé Grull (European French)

A 22-year-old Canadian who falls in love with Ramona Flowers. He is the bass guitarist of the band Sex Bob-omb as well as a hyper-competent martial artist of some unknown, yet effective anime/video game-style fighting technique.

  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: In the comics Scott didn't really mind fighting the exes all that much, if anything he found it kind of fun, but here in the movie, the stress of constantly fighting the exes one after another instead of over the course of several months and nearly dying multiple times causes Scott to become abrasive and lash out verbally against Ramona and even Slut-Shaming her by asking if there was anyone she hadn't slept with.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: In the comics, Scott was more Innocently Insensitive than an actual jerk. Here, he has something of an It's All About Me attitude that he eventually grows out of.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: When it comes to the conflict between Knives and Ramona. He stops Knives from attacking Ramona and tells her that he holds himself accountable for the fact that he cheated on both her and Ramona.
  • Age Lift: He's a year younger than Comics Scott, who was 23 at the start.
  • Alliterative Family: Stacey and Scott Pilgrim.
  • Back from the Dead: He was killed by Gideon when he was stabbed with a sword, but an extra life – earned after the Katayanagi battle – saved him.
  • Bond One-Liner: In a stark contrast with the comics, he gets some genuinely badass one-liners. Take, for example, his fight with Lucas Lee, after defeating his stunt doubles:
    "Mr. Lee? You're needed back on set."
  • Big Brother Instinct: A brief moment when we don't see Scott thinking of only himself, is when he thought Julie did something to Stacy. Ultimately, leading to this interaction between the two:
    "What did you do with my sister?"
  • Evil Counterpart: Subverted with Nega-Scott. Nega-Scott looks like a ghostly apparition of Scott with red eyes, but turns out to be very friendly.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Given the way the adaptation compresses events and relationships from the comic, Scott's companions make their various issues with him known almost immediately to show the audience what a drag he is to their lives. Most notably, Wallace (who was Scott's closest pal in the graphic novels) seems to barely like him, hoping to definitively kick him out of their apartment one way or another.
  • Guile Hero: He uses his wits to defeat Lucas (by goading him to take a skateboard challenge that ends up killing him) and Todd (by making him break Vegan law).
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Stabbed by Gideon in the Chaos Theatre.
  • Jerkass:
    • Lampshaded by Kim and Julie on separate occasions:
      Kim: Scott you're the salt of the Earth.
      Scott: Thanks.
      Kim: I meant scum of the Earth.
      Scott: [oblivious] Thanks.
    • This is his interaction with Julie:
      Julie: Yeah we get you're a total lady-killer wannabe jerky-jerk.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He starts off with a selfish It's All About Me attitude, but then becomes more self-aware as the plot goes on.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: He's incredibly reluctant to fight Roxie, even though she's kicking his ass.
    "I don't think I can hit a girl. They're soft."

    Ramona Flowers 

Ramona Flowers
"I change my hair color every week and a half, dude. Get used to it"

Played By: Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Dubbed By: Ingrid Donnadieu (European French)

A 25-year-old American with a troubled past. She moved from New York to Toronto to get away from it all. Or so she thought.

  • Action Girl: She fights Roxy evenly, and probably would have won singlehandedly had she not been informed that Scott has to be the one to fight. Even then, she literally guides Scott by the hand in fighting her off.
  • Adaptational Wimp: A bit, she is still capable of kicking ass, but compared to the comic and the later anime, this version of Ramona sits on the side lines more often. Best show when her team up with Scott against Gideon in the comics is instead given to Knives.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: What she tries to escape by moving to Toronto.
  • Deadpan Snarker: It's kind of a necessity, given that she's dating Scott.
  • Drop the Hammer: She summons a hammer to fight Roxie.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Knives actually likes her before becoming her Unknown Rival. Also, she was with Roxie when she was "bi-curious."
  • Gay Romantic Phase: She said her time dating Roxy Richter was just a phase. Roxy obviously did not take it that way, considering how pissed off hearing that makes her.
  • Goth: Not as extreme as some examples, but she does dress in a very punk style, with dyed hair, military style clothing, and boots.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She used to be a nasty, manipulative person when she was younger, but changed when she got older.
  • Jerkass: When she was younger.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She gets a Lingerie Scene.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: Changes her hair color frequently.
  • Nonconformist Dyed Hair: Ramona Flowers constantly dyes her dark hair various unnatural colors, such as magenta, blue, and green. She's a cool rollerskater whom Scott is immediately enthralled by. In an attempt to emulate her, Scott's first girlfriend Knives dyes part of her hair blue.
  • Really Gets Around: Lampshaded by Kim and Young Neil.
    Kim: Ramona dated twins?
    Young Neil: At the same time?
  • Statuesque Stunner: The tallest woman in the cast and is desired by several men and women within the story.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Zigzagged. For as casual as she is about the whole “having seven evil exes” thing, she immediately gets violent on Scott’s behalf when he’s attacked by Roxy. Conversely, while she still expresses concern for Scott when he fights Lucas and Todd, she doesn’t make any move to intervene in either fight.

    Knives Chau 

Knives Chau
"Get ready to CHAU DOWN!"

Played By: Ellen Wong

Dubbed By: Lily Rubens (European French)

A 17-year-old Catholic schoolgirl and Scott's girlfriend until he dumps her for Ramona.

  • Action Girl: Knives is able to fight on par with Gideon by the end of the film.
  • Adaptational Badass: She's a much better fighter, being capable of fighting Ramona, where in the comic, their fight ended quickly with her as the loser.
  • Adaptational Dye-Job: She gives her hair a red streak in the comics, but in the film, it's blue (this is due to her wanting to copy Ramona's current hair color).
  • Adaptation Personality Change: While her personality is roughly the same in the film as in the comic, her relationship with Scott is portrayed as being much more genuine. The comics make no attempt at shying away from the fact that Scott only dated her "because it was easy" and didn't have any intention of getting serious with her, while the adaptation shows the two having similar interests and generally enjoying each other's company.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She's dating Scott, but she gets really excited when she realizes she "kissed lips that kissed yours [Envy's]!"
  • Badass Adorable: She's definitely a cutie, even if it's her naivety that's adorable to the more cynical characters, and she's able to tag-team with Scott to beat Gideon into the ground.
  • Break the Cutie: After breaking up with Scott.
  • Catholic Schoolgirls Rule: When Stacey confronts Scott about the fact he's dating a high school student, he states it's a Catholic school "with the uniform and everything."
  • Character Development: She evolves from a Clingy Jealous Girl to a much more mature and balanced individual. At the end of the canon ending, she lets Scott go to Ramona with her blessing and a kiss on the cheek, which was a far cry from how she was in the beginning of it.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She still refers to Scott as "her boyfriend" when she fights Ramona, even though Scott dumped her. She also briefly goes out with Young Neil to try and make Scott jealous.
  • Cute But Psycho: At first, Scott and Knives hit it off... until he starts developing an interest in Ramona, and then she starts trying to one-up Ramona.
  • The Determinator: The original version of the film highlighted the fact that in a world full of aloof and disaffected young men and women, Knives' intense affection for Scott was a laudable trait.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: In the film, she attacked Ramona at the Chaos Theater for breaking Scott's heart. She later tells Scott to go after Ramona when everything was said and done.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Scott points out at the end that she shouldn't blame Ramona because he cheated on her on his own volition.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: To Scott in the film, where she's portrayed as a serious love interest instead of a joke like in the comics. There's even an alternate ending where Scott basically says 'Goodbye' as usual... to Ramona! First Girl Wins!
  • Stalker with a Crush: She devolves into this after Scott breaks up with her, and even moreso after learning he has a new girlfriend.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She even helps out Scott in the final battle, moreso than Ramona.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Towards Ramona during the second half after Scott breaks up with her. It's way tamer than her behavior toward her in the comics, though, and the two end up becoming friends after Scott comes clean about everything.
  • Unknown Rival: Considers Ramona her arch enemy after her breakup with Scott. Ramona doesn't know... or care.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Or ex-girlfriend, at that. She doesn't know the whole situation or that Ramona is being mind controlled by Gideon, but she still attacks Ramona to defend Scott.
    "You broke the heart of the guy who broke mine!"
  • Yoko Oh No: Her presence at Sex Bob-Omb's session is frowned upon, especially by Kim, who is disgusted by 23-year-old Scott dating 17-year-old Knives.

    Wallace Wells 

Wallace Wells
"Guess who's drunk?"

Played By: Kieran Culkin

Dubbed By: Alexis Tomassian (European French)

Scott's gay best friend and roommate. He is extremely sarcastic but has Scott's best interests at heart.

  • Adaptational Wimp: In the books, Wallace devolves mild psychic powers after being trained by his boyfriend Mobile. Wallace is also something of a Yoda to Scott, teaching him to fight. Additionally, his skill with computers — his job is either an IT consultant or otherwise related to computers — is fairly useful in series, even though he proves a sorry excuse for a hacker. In fact, (spoilers for Vol 6 of novels) Wallace is the one who finds Gideon's location using the internet and is able to "sense" Gideon's evil strongly enough that he warns Scott that even after Scott and Ramona appear to have broken up, that Scott will have to face Gideon. In the movie, Wallace is a normal human and his interest in and skill with computers was cut for being irrelevant to the plot.
  • All Gays are Promiscuous: Has a boyfriend, Other Scott, then he goes after Jimmy. Neither Jimmy or Other Scott have a problem with it, with all three plus Scott all sharing the same bed in one scene.
    • There's also "Some Guy," whom Wallace was sleeping with in the third act when Scott blunders into the apartment.
  • Alliterative Name: Name and surname starts with W.
  • Closet Key: He's this for Jimmy who was apparently happy dating Stacey till he met Wallace.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "Scott. Evil Ex. Fight."
  • Hypocritical Humor: He tells Scott not to cheat on his girlfriend, despite the fact that he himself is cheating on his own boyfriend. Apparently Wallace didn't invent the gay rulebook, though, so all complaints should be taken up with Liberace's ghost.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He cares about Scott despite putting him down all the time. Also, he tells Scott to break up with Knives so that he can stop cheating on her.
  • Satellite Character: He doesn't seem to be friends with any of Scott's band members (or even a fan of indie rock music) and comes to Sex Bob-omb's shows just to support his friend, which is sweet in its own right. Implied to have his own social circle independent of Scott.
  • Shipper on Deck: Wallace is essentially this for Scott and Ramona prior to even meeting her, since she is 1) not Envy Adams and 2) not underage, and an important step for Scott moving on from Envy.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Subverted. He openly states that he plans to stalk Lucas Lee, but doesn't seem to be bothered when Scott has to kill him.
  • Straight Gay: You wouldn't know he's gay if Scott didn't mention it.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: A meta-version; this version of Wallace essentially kicks Scott out of their (fine, Wallace's) apartment with no warning and no place to go. The novel version just persistently hints and pushes Scott to move in with Ramona, and waits until it's official before admitting that he has already signed a lease with his boyfriend.

    Stephen Stills 

Stephen Stills

Played By: Mark Webber

Dubbed By: Franck Lorrain (European French)

The lead vocalist of Sex Bob-Omb.

    Kim Pine 

Kimberly "Kim" Pine
"Scott, you are the salt of the Earth.... I meant, scum of the Earth"

Played By: Alison Pill

Dubbed By: Aurore Bonjour (European French)

The drummer of Sex Bob-Omb. She and Scott dated in high school. It didn't end well.

  • Adaptational Jerkass: In the comics, while still a bit frosty, Kim was nonetheless a close friend to Scott and more amicable with him. Here, she seems to harbor a much deeper grudge which doesn't dissolve until he finally apologizes for it.
  • Amicable Exes: Used to date Scott in high school. Although, she has resentment towards him throughout the film until he apologizes.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Several scenes hint that under her aloof façade, Kim is clearly still hurt by Scott's dumping her all those years ago, and his failure to even acknowledge it and dating other girls whilst they remain in the same peer group is probably one of his most egregiously thoughtless acts, on top of him doing something fairly similar with the younger and more naïve Knives. Ultimately though, Kim cannot completely stop being Scott's friend - she encourages him to go talk to Ramona before she vanishes after their fight, despite claiming she really doesn't care - the two come to an understanding and seemingly remain friends.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Easily the snarkiest character in the film, Pill's performance seems to have been influenced in no small part by Tracy Grandstaff.
  • Death Glare: Her default expression seems to be a state of constant anger at everything, especially when it involves Scott.
  • Demoted to Extra: Compared to her more involved role in the books (mostly because her backstory has been moved to the [adult swim] Animated Adaptation).
  • Dull Surprise: Constantly speaks in a monotone.
  • Fiery Redhead: Averted/Played With. In the words of the Hulk, Kim is less of a raging fire - her counting in each number/playing the drums is the only time she raises her voice above a sarcastic deadpan - but definitely counts as smouldering fire from the few cracks in her facade.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Snarky though she may be, she is a very good friend to Scott, using a combination of patience and Brutal Honesty to help him come to terms with his own flaws.
  • Perpetual Frowner: She's constantly in a bad mood. Even when she's happy, her smile is just the corner of her mouth moving slightly.
  • Pet the Dog: When she spots Ramona in the crowd at the final Battle of the Bands (after her and Scott's falling out following the Roxie fight), we get a brief glimpse of her version of this.
    Kim: Scott, not that I care, but you should go talk to her before she's gone.
    Scott: Thanks, Kim.
    Kim: And I really don't care.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female member of the band. It's mildly subdued in that there are only three members, however.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Almost every direct comment to Scott is barely contained snark and venom. But when she overhears his conversation with Ramona where he claims that he left her on good terms (hint: he did not), she doesn't look angry or venomous; she looks deeply heartbroken.
  • Sour Supporter: She does care about Scott, but she's (justifiably) bitter about the crap he's done to her and is similarly doing to Knives and Ramona. While she does help him out, it's not without a boatload of lip.
  • Suddenly Shouting: Whenever she counts the band in, it typically involves her screaming "WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB!! ONE-TWO-THREE-FOUR!", without any warning. The one time she doesn't, at the Chaos Theatre, is when she's prompted to by Gideon; she responds by subtly flipping him off.
  • When She Smiles: It earns Scott extra points when he apologizes to her.

    Young Neil 

Young Neil

Played By: Johnny Simmons

Dubbed By: Dimitri Rougeul (European French)

    Stacey Pilgrim 

Stacey Pilgrim

Played By: Anna Kendrick

Dubbed By: Karine Foviau (European French)

Scott's levelheaded younger sister. She berates him for the stupid things he does but is always there for him.

  • Gossipy Hens: She sends out a mass text about every new social update.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Sometimes her kindness toward Scott is overshadowed by her own kooky nature and lack of interaction with her sibling, but still there. While Stacey constantly reprimands Scott everytime he did anything stupid blatantly, near the end of Act Two, when Scott is heartbroken and alone, she comes to him, sweetly comforts him and gives him advice to move on.
  • Only Sane Woman: She’s the one who properly reacts if something weird happens, notably Matthew Patel’s Dynamic Entry and his out-of-nowhere Bollywood number.

    Julie Powers 

Julie Powers

Played By: Aubrey Plaza

Dubbed By: Cécile d'Orlando (European French)

Stephen's on-again, off-again girlfriend who hates Scott with a passion and is rude to pretty much everyone. Except Envy.

    Envy Adams 

Natalie "Envy" Adams
"Hello again, friend of a friend..."

Played By: Brie Larson

Dubbed By: Karl-Line Heller (European French)

The lead vocalist for The Clash at Demonhead, and the girl who crushed Scott's heart into little pieces.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She's a redhead in the books and the video game, but a blonde in the movie.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: While Envy seems to get her act together after Todd is defeated, Envy is portrayed as much colder towards Scott. Probably justified, given her limited time to interact with him. See Demoted to Extra below. On the flipside, however, she never fights Ramona in this version and only throws a few passive-aggressive remarks her way rather than engage in a full-blown rivalry.
  • Between My Legs: During the concert.
  • The Cast Showoff: Larson actually sang the song that Clash at Demonhead performs (but not on the soundtrack). In her teens, she was a pop singer, and it shows.
  • The Coats Are Off: Does this in her concerts.
  • Demoted to Extra: Gets quite a bit cut out in the film, since her fight with Ramona is cut and is compacted into Ramona's fight with Roxy. She is completely absent in the climax and her role is merged with Ramona's.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": She doesn't get angry exactly, but she's taken aback when Scott calls her Natalie. She later seems to seriously consider Scott's advice of going back to her original name.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Knives likes her a little too much. Her reaction to discovering that Envy is Scott's ex? "I've kissed the lips that kissed you!"
  • Evil Diva: When nervous, she really hams up her diva act, not that she isn't a diva the rest of the time, and a bitch to Scott.
  • Evil Is Petty: She broke up with Scott for a guy he never even met and then has the gall to be jealous when he gets a new girlfriend. Though it is left a little vague if she's jealous of Ramona because her ex-boyfriend Scott is dating him or because her current boyfriend Todd is trying to kill Scott over her.
  • Ironic Echo: She uses Julie's signature swear censor on her.
    Julie: For the record, I am super pissed off for you.
    Envy: Shut the @&%$ up, Julie.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She used to be a really nice girl, but changed when fame got to her head.
  • Leg Focus: In her concert performance, there's a lot of focus to her legs.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her concert performance is just Male Gaze after the other.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Much has been made of the sex-on-a-stick voice Larson uses in portraying Envy. She drops it for only one line: right after Scott calls her "Natalie". (Well, two lines, counting Julie's interjection.)
  • Precision F-Strike: "Shut the BLEEP up, Julie."
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: Justified as she is a rock star.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Lampshaded by Scott during his fight with Todd.
    Scott: You used to be so NICE!

The League of Evil Exes

    Matthew Patel 

Matthew Patel
"MISSSTER PILGRIM! It is I, Matthew Patel! Consider our fight BEGUN!"

Played By: Satya Bhabha

Dubbed By: Juan Llorca (European French)

An Indian man with a penchant for an over-the-top Bollywood-style musical number.

  • Adaptational Badass: While still the easiest of the Evil Exes to beat, here he's presented as a credible threat to Scott instead of a campy joke and actually holds his own in a close-quarters fight (unlike his comic counterpart, who's a Squishy Wizard).
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Loudly announces himself as "Ramona's first evil ex-boyfriend".
  • Incoming Ham: In the movie, he very suddenly busts through a wall shouting "MIS-TER PIL-GRIIIIM!" This is the very first time we see an Evil Ex.
  • Large Ham: Like the rest of the Seven Evil Exes, Matthew is pretty crazy and overly dramatic.
  • Leitmotif: Bollywood music plays when Ramona talks about how she met Matthew, and it's also a buildup for his Villain Song.
  • Starter Villain: He is the first and easiest to beat of Ramona's exes.
  • Villain Song: "Slick" in the movie, more or less taken out of his scene in the graphic novel with the Space Channel 5 elements replaced with a Bollywood number.

    Lucas Lee 

Lucas Lee
"I'm an A-lister, brah!"

Played By: Chris Evans

Dubbed By: Tony Marot (European French)

A pro skateboarder turned A-list action star.

  • Action Hero: Every single action hero cliche from his one-liners to the movies he stars in are all wrapped up in a neat package.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: He is the League's Token Good Teammate in the source material. Here, he's pretty much an asshole like the rest of them, as Evans plays him as a hilariously douchey ham, though he also engages in a bit of small talk with Ramona and remarks that Scott "seems nice."
  • Alliterative Name: Name and surname starts with L.
  • Flunky Boss: His doubles all join him in his fight against Scott.
  • Friendly Enemy: To Scott. He has a short but friendly conversation with Ramona, and comments that Scott seems like a nice guy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite him being a member of the League Of Evil Exes, he's actually one of the kindest of the bunch and it's been hinted that he isn't actually evil and is just playing his part. Instead of acting like a victim towards Ramona like the rest of the exes, he instead compliments her boyfriend and asks how her life is. Also, despite being a Wolf Pack Boss, he asks if they'd all like a cup of coffee as he orders one and looks after their well-being.
  • Large Ham: Evans was clearly having a blast.
  • Wag the Director:invoked He takes it upon himself to call "action!", interrupting the actual director while filming his movie.
  • Wolf Pack Boss: In the movie, he's content to let his stunt doubles beat Scott to a pulp instead of doing it himself.

    Todd Ingram 

Todd Ingram
"Sounds like someone wants to get... fungy!"

Played By: Brandon Routh

Dubbed By: Emmanuel Garijo (European French)

Envy's boyfriend, bassist of the band and Vegan Psychic. He is incredibly thick, both literally and figuratively.

    Roxie Richter 

Roxanne "Roxie" Richter
"I'm a little bi-FURIOUS!"

Played By: Mae Whitman

Dubbed By: Sara Chambin (European French)

A psychotic girl Ramona was "bi-curious" with.

  • Alliterative Name: Name and surname starts with R.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The back of her knees in the movie. In the comics, this was Envy's weak point.
  • Butch Lesbian: Downplayed. You wouldn't know she's a lesbian if she didn't say so herself. That being said, she's pretty much a tomboy.
  • Character Exaggeration: The movie plays up the Psycho Lesbian aspect of her character, making her openly hostile to both Scott and Ramona, whereas in the comic she's quite friendly with Ramona, even when she's trying to kill Scott.
  • Composite Character: In the film, Envy's fight with Ramona is adapted out and is instead given to Roxie. This is a left over side-effect of the original plan to have Envy take her place in the film.
  • Dark Action Girl: The only female one of Ramona's Evil Exes and every bit as dangerous as her male counterparts. In fact, she's possibly the most-openly psychotic of all of them.
  • Demoted to Extra: She gets quite a bit cut out in the film; she almost got a complete axing when director Wright considered putting Envy into her role as Ramona's 4th ex.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Roxie's defeat is anything but subtle in the movie; she even grits out "You'll never... be able... to do this to her!" and moans in ecstasy before she explodes. The way Roxie's coins fall on Ramona is also rather... lewd.
  • Exposed to the Elements: In the movie, her outfits are pretty light and exposing for winter. Averted in the comic, as the issues she's in are during a heat wave.
  • Facial Markings: She has black eyeshadow that extends to her cheeks.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She's very short-tempered.
  • Hurricane of Puns: She hurls several plays on words as she attacks Ramona and Scott, like "bi-furious" after Ramona's "bi-curious," "hasbian" (has been + lesbian), "every Pilgrim reaches the end of his journey" and "Your BF's about to get F-d in the B!"
  • In the Hood: She initially attacks Scott while wearing a hoodie that obscures her identity and gender.
  • Insistent Terminology: She is the reason Ramona always corrects Scott when he refers to the League of Evil Ex-Boyfriends instead of Exes.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: She is never once referred to as "Roxanne" in the film.
  • Power Echoes: Some of her dialogues as well as her shoutings and screams are reverberated. And several ethereal/reverberated low key immodest orgasms can be heard when she's around and in her dedicated piece of soundtrack.
  • Psycho Lesbian: She's a little "bi-furious".
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female among Ramona's exes.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: It's easy to feel somewhat sorry for her when Ramona completely dismisses their relationship. Roxy sounds genuinely hurt when Ramona offhandedly says that their time together "meant nothing" and, in her eyes, "didn't count."
  • Villain Teleportation: Of the black and smoky variation. She uses this to Teleport Spam and dash around at near ninja-like speed and to Smoke Out.
  • Whip Sword: She wields a bladed whip that's akin to a Whip Sword (it retracts into a belt rather than a blade).
  • Woman Scorned: Her reaction to Ramona brushing off their relationship as being "bi-curious" says it all.

    The Katayanagi Twins 

Ken and Kyle Katayanagi

Played By: Keita Saitou (Kyle) and Shota Saitou (Ken)

Dubbed By: Majid Berhila & Hugues Duquesne (European French)

A set of Japanese twins and electronic musicians.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Due to being Demoted to Extra they don't kidnap Kim Pine to lure Scott out.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Instead of working with robotics they are performers with the ability to summon dragons out of their music.
  • Alliterative Name: Both their names and surname starts with K.
  • Demoted to Extra: They are almost cut out of the film entirely, as they have zero lines (their actors don't speak English), next to no backstory besides Ramona's two-timing, and the least screentime of any of the exes, only seemingly being in the movie because they are exes number 5 and 6 respectively.
  • Dual Boss: They are fought together by Scott and his band.
  • Oh, Crap!: When they see their music dragons about to fall on them.
  • Sibling Team: Obviously.
  • Summon Magic: During the duel with Scott and his band, their music is able to produce a dragon.
  • The Voiceless: They have no lines in the film (losing their backstory and personalities entirely in the process) because their actors didn't speak English, whereas in the comic book, they have a lot of lines. So the whole robot theme from the book is replaced with "amp to amp battle" where their holographic twin dragons fight against Sex Bob-omb's holographic yeti. It helps that the amp battle was based on the original draft of Volume 5 that the filmmakers were given.

    Gideon Graves 

Gideon Gordon Graves
"Do you know how long it took to get all the evil exes' contact information so I can form this stupid league? Like two hours! TWO HOURS!!!"

Played By: Jason Schwartzman

Dubbed By: Fabrice Josso (European French)

A music producer and the leader of the League of Evil Exes.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: While still overall a controlling and abusive Jerkass, he doesn't capture his exes and trap them in cryosleep in the movie and seems to only want Ramona back by his side. His recruiting of Sex-Bob-Omb also seemed genuine.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: In the comic, Gideon mind controls people through The Glow, a psychic corruption that brings the worst out in its victims and allows him to manipulate their memories. In the movie Gideon uses a microchip to mind control Ramona and old-fashioned money to control Sex Bob-Omb instead.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the comic, he's a pretty stoic guy with Scary Shiny Glasses, while here he's depicted as smarmy and Faux Affably Evil; though it's a bit of a subversion since he's still the same possessive, pretentious creep trying to ruin Ramona's love life.
  • Alliterative Name: His first, middle, and last name each start with G.
  • Big Bad: He is the film's main antagonist and Final Boss.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He's briefly mentioned near the beginning of the movie, but it's not until later he becomes really important.
  • Cool Sword: In the first fight, he uses a Sword Cane, while in the second, he uses a low-resolution katana that leaves behind a trail of pixels. It looks much cooler than it sounds.
  • The Corrupter: At the climax of the movie, he brainwashes Ramona and gives Sex Bob-omb (sans Scott) a record deal, meaning they're begrudgingly loyal to him as well. Until Scott earns the "Power of Self-Respect" to win his friends and Ramona back, he has almost nobody in his corner aside from Stacy, Wallace, and (unbeknownst to him) Knives.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He tries to come off as chummy, friendly and affable, but is such a smug, over-the-top douchebag that it's impossible to buy for even ten seconds. As Wallace puts it, he really is the perfect asshole.
  • Final Boss: Being the Big Bad of a story with fights framed as video game boss battles, he's the very last of Ramona's ex-boyfriends that Scott must defeat.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses and has basically no redeeming qualities.
  • Large Ham: Oh dear...
    "You made me swallow my gum! It'll be in my digestive tract for SEVEN YEARS!!!"
  • Manipulative Bastard: It turns out that Gideon is manipulating Ramona through a microchip, robbing her of any resistance to him.
  • Marathon Boss: He's the hardest and longest to beat of the Exes by far. Scott fights him in two "phases", one where he uses his Sword Cane and another where he levels up and uses a much more powerful, glowing and pixelized blue nodachi.
  • One-Man Army: He can hold his own even against multiple opponents, and during the Final Battle at that.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He refers to Knives, a Chinese girl, as "Kung Pao Chicken".
  • Smug Snake: He's a manipulative, arrogant and all-around unlikeable person. While unlike most examples of this trope, he seemed to be more effective in his deeds, he ends up being the ex with the least dignified end in the film.
  • Sword Cane: His classy weapon.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Knives and Scott beat him, he goes on an angry rant.
  • Villain in a White Suit: Becomes this in the final battle when he wears a white suit, combined with Red and Black and Evil All Over, and is also White and Red and Eerie All Over, what with his shirt being red and tie being black.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He punches Ramona down a flight of stairs after she knees him in the groin, with the announcer deducting points from him for doing so.

Other Characters

    Michael Comeau 

Michael Comeau

Played By: Nelson Franklin

  • Lampshade Hanging: Scott runs past him and overhears him talking about how "the comic book was much better than the movie."
  • Last-Name Basis: Only ever referred to as "Comeau" during the movie.

    Tamera Chen 

Tamera Chen

Played By: Chantelle Chung

    Lynette Guycott 

Lynette Guycott

Played by: Tennessee Thomas

The drummer of The Clash at Demonhead. She largely remains silent and expressionless.

  • Demoted to Extra: She has a huge role in the book, but she does nothing in the film, with her punching the highlights out of Knives' hair being given to Todd.
  • Emotionless Girl: She never really shows any emotion.
  • Funny Background Event: Can be for some comic readers. During the fight between Scott and Todd, if one looks carefully, you can notice her successfully blending/fading into the background like an awesome ninja. It's just what she wanted to do in the comics!
  • Opaque Lenses: While it was subtly implied in the comics that they're just Scary Shiny Glasses, they're outright reflective lenses in the movie.
  • The Voiceless: Just like the Katayanagis, Lynette's character is practically excised from the film in order to focus on the Scott-Ramona-Todd-Envy Love Dodecahedron. She's there in the background, but she gets no lines and her defining moment in the comic (punching the highlights out of Knives' hair) is transfered over to Todd just to up his already sky-high douchebag factor. Once the actual fighting starts, she's never seen again.



Played By: Michael Cera

Dubbed By: Hervé Grull (European French)

    Vegan Police 

The Vegan Police
"No vegan diet no vegan powers!"

Played By: Thomas Jane and Clifton Collins Jr.

A task force charged with enforcing the rules placed on those with special powers gained through practicing the vegan diet.

  • The Cavalry: They show up just as Todd Ingram is about to finish Scott off after it's become clear that Scott can't beat him. Although, they didn't come to save Scott, they just came to "de-veganize" Todd.
  • De-power: They use a ray to "de-veganize" a vegan-empowered individual for breaching the vegan diet. They do this to Todd Ingram after Scott lures him into drinking a half-and-half.
  • Finger Firearms: They shoot their "de-veganizing" ray via their index finger.
  • Inadvertent Entrance Cue: They show up immediately and out of nowhere after Scott lets Todd know that he just drank a half-and-half.
  • The Men in Black: They dress in black, have Cool Shades and intervene for cases beyond the normal police's abilities.
  • The Omniscient: There's no way to know how they get to know how and when vegan-empowered people breach the diet with Ludicrous Precision, they just do.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: "It's milk and eggs, bitch!"
