"Error" / Rosemarie Washington / (Pink Girl)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/schoolroom21.jpg
She's got quite an intense curriculum ahead of her...

Ms. Board: You aren’t a Student, are you? You must be a grey-zoner, huh? That’s such a funny happenstance, grey-zoners aren’t supposed to be able to get here!
Pink Girl: ...Grey zone?
Ms. Board: It’s impossible by all means…. How did you get here?
Pink Girl: That’s what I’ve been asking YOU!

The heroine of the story; a ninth grader who was inexplicably spirited from Earth and wound up here.


  • Amnesiac Hero: The Pink Girl cannot remember her name.
  • Badass Normal: Does quite a lot for a girl with no superpowers or enhanced abilities against enemies who are effectively invincible. note 
  • Becoming the Mask: When they first meet, #42 loudly proclaims that Error must have come to School to lead a Student revolt against the Teachers. Rather than disabuse her of this notion, Error pretends this is the exactly the case. In the very next school period, she and a select group of friends are plotting counter-maneuvers against the School Staff. Guess who's leading the conversation?
  • Boarding School: Her original intended destination back on Earth, before she was rerouted to THIS School, instead.
    Ms. Board: You said... you don’t know why you’re here?
    Error: Yeah. Well, the last thing I remember was my parents telling me I was going to a boarding school...
  • Book Dumb: Her smarts aren't academic smarts. When listening to teacher's lectures, her brain automatically tunes them out.
  • Delinquent: This girl is a hellion.
    • Here's a quick look at her rap sheet by the time she's halfway through her second school cycle: lying, bribery, completely trashing the School's art room by dumping paint everywhere, turning her friends into delinquents, stabbing herself in the arm to be excused from class early, ganging up on another Student with a friend, (two-on-one) and stabbing him with a box cutter until he was in critical condition, ganging up on the cafeteria cook with two friends, (three-on-one,) snatching the cook's child away from his parent, before stabbing the cook in the eye with the same box cutter, and fomenting civil unrest among all her classmates. If this school were more down-to-earth, she'd be a villain to be reckoned with.
  • Friendly Fire: When it comes to throwing weapons, Error is less a "sniper rifle with laser sighting" and more of a "scattergun" as poor #73 learned.
  • Know When To Fold Them: Error will battle foes she feels she has a fair chance of beating. But the moment she learns that a given enemy is effectively invulnerable, she'll look for other ways of dealing with that foe, instead of keeping up the assault.
  • Magnetic Hero: She ends up gaining LOTS of friends and companions in a relatively short amount of time. Part of it is her winning personality. It also helps that The Principal is a mass murderer, and she has a plan to escape before he enacts doomsday on The School.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She's horrified at how close she came to killing Jeremy the Hall Monitor.
  • Naughty Is Good: In a learning institution as backwards as The School, where teachers are free to have their students executed, where graduation represents a death sentence instead of a brighter life, isn't it appropriate that the hero be a girl like Error? Irrepressible as she is, all her rule-breaking serves towards a greater good.
  • Oddball Doppelgänger: The 'cover story' Miss Board concocts for the Pink Girl: that she is a 'Factory Error.' Pink Girl maintains this fiction in part to act as a decoy and deflect notice off of #54.
  • Secret Keeper: She's #54's.
  • Stranger in a Strange School: She's the stranger in question.
  • The Bully: There's evidence she used to be a bully before winding up at this school.
  • Transgender: It's implied early on, and more or less confirmed later that she is a trans girl.
  • Vocal Dissonance: According to #73, Pink Girl's voice sounds boyish.

The Commentators

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/commentators.png
Saving her from the dangers of the School and herself.

Commentator: (responding to The Principal)"YOU WON’T WIN. I’LL MAKE SURE OF THAT, YOU BUG-EYED IGNORAMUS."

The mysterious collective of voices inside Error's head who help guide her actions. Technically, they're not Students in and of themselves, but the Second Person narrative encourages them to think of ''themselves'' as Error, so...


  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Refuse to bow down to The Principal's God complex.
    Commentator: 'Lurn' what? How to spell? Or that you're a huge CONK SUNK.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: Though the 'romancing' doesn't go beyond the Commentators verbally hitting on The Principal. They quickly sense he has no idea how to deal with flirting, though. After they barrage him with enough unwelcome come-ons, he leaves Error like an exorcised demon fleeing a Bible-quoting priest.
  • Hearing Voices: They're the voices.
  • Hurricane of Puns: They got into a pun-off against the Principal during his Halloween 2015 Takeover. They won.
    Commentator: yeah well u know why the principal has so many eyes? cuz those contain the only pupils that like him
    The Principal: WHY COULDN’T ANNA WATCH A HORROR MOVIE? SHE DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS!!!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
    Ms. Board: I….I don’t get it- …Wait…What did you do???
    The Principal: HA HA HA
    Ms. Board: ….WHAT DID YOU DO?!??!?!
  • The Power of Trust: Whereas Ms. Green is saddled with a 'mixed bag' of Commentators (some helpful, some trollish,) Error's own batch of Commentators seem to be consistently more dependable in their guidance. Thus, she trusts them more wholeheartedly than poor Ms. Green can afford to.
    >Let’s roll out the plan
    [You’re feeling more confident, knowing you’re being guided now. You feel like you can do this.]

#24 / (Green Girl)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/number_24.png
And while we're on the subject of how much teachers hate disruptive students...

#24: You SURVIVED! That was AMAZING! I never...!

A girl who reacts in loud astonishment when the math teacher decides not to kill the Pink Girl, in defiance of her expectations.


#42

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4210.png

#42: WE HAVE LOST OUR LOYAL REBELS AGAINST THE NEVERENDING EVIL OF THE PRINCIPAL! MARISKA AND JEREMY HAVE FALLEN, BUT WE WILL NOT MOURN, FOR THEY WILL BE REMEMBERED AS MARTYRS!
Her Classmates: (breaking into murmurs) “Who the hell is Mariska?” / “She hasn’t been expelled yet?” / “Every single lunch period…” / “I didn’t like the Hall Monitor anyways.” / “We’re not even doing anything! Does she really think hiding ciphers in homework and yelling at everyone does anything?”
#42: OUR REBELLION CONTINUES, MY FRIENDS! WE WILL NOT LOSE THIS BATTLE BEFORE GRADUATION!

A feisty girl who years to incite rebellion against the School staff.


  • Ascended Fangirl: #42 manages to be accepted into her heroine's inner circle, and be entrusted to take part in an important secret plot Error cooks up to thwart the Teachers.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
    Error: ...42, can you come a little closer?
    42 flops herself onto your table stomach first, despite being perfectly able to walk around it to sit near you.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Has been hero-worshipping Error since she was processed in the Factory. Error is the inspiration for everything she does. What's more, #42 views all of Error's actions, (past and present) through a pair of tightly cinched 'hero goggles.' Even the more-cowardly stuff Error's done.
    #54: You say you saw Error in… the factory?
    #42: Indeed! It was so inspiring! She threw things at the Scavengers as they chased her, even though it did nothing! A true hero, I’d s-
  • Hot-Blooded: Nobody on Error's team is more enthusiastically gung-ho than her.
  • Incoming Ham: First seen standing atop a lunchroom table, Dramatic Wind flowing through her hair, loudly exhorting her classmates to rise up in REBELLION!
  • Kill It with Fire: How she advocates dealing with The Principal.
    Commentator: Has anyone ever graffitied your posters?
    The Principal: …YES. THAT TEACHER’S PET HAS OVERWRITTEN THE ‘L’ INTO A ‘B’ ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS.
  • La Résistance: #42 would like nothing more than to lead a insurrection against the entire School staff. The majority of her classmates are content to go with the flow.
  • No Indoor Voice: #42's voice is perfect for addressing large audiences. And horrible for whispering.
  • Rabble Rouser: #42 has been trying very diligently to turn herself into this, but consistently fails because her fellow Students find her too annoying.
  • The Cassandra: She claims to have seen Error escape the Factory. Though Error can't remember this happening, and nobody believes her, Error ends up treating #42 better than most Cassandras by telling her she's faking amnesia, and arranging a meeting with her in the Art Room.

#54

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/number_548.png
Beneath her straitlaced exterior beats the heart of a troublemaker. A perfect partner for the Pink Girl.

#54: You mentioned a ‘home’, somewhere that wasn’t the School. Could… Could you take me there with you?
Pink Girl: ..Yeah, but-Home’s kinda in the gray-zone-
#54: That’s fine. In 9 class cycles, we graduate… I don’t want to die.

A student who takes a fast interest in Pink Girl. They soon establish a friendship, combining their efforts to escape the School together.


  • A Day in the Limelight: At the same time Error is taking her very first Language Arts class, #54 briefly becomes the hero of in her own separate side story in Gym class, with #42 as her sidekick.
  • Beige Prose: #54 speech patterns have a very concise, utilitarian exactness to them. She and all her fellow Students have been trained to speak with excellent grammar, free of excessive verbiage, hyperbole, idioms, imaginative wordplay, metaphors, poetic arrangement of every sort, pop culture references, sarcasm. similes, slang, and vulgarisms.
  • The Confidant: #54's the only one so far whom Pink Girl can truly open up to.
  • Dark Secret: She's the true Factory Error of her class.
  • Friendship Trinket: The cutesy barrette which Pink Girl gives to #54 to tell her apart from her fellow students.
  • He Knows About Timed Hits: Whenever there are new RPG rules which Error and her Commentators need to be informed of, #54's the one who'd used as a mouthpiece by some unknown force. She always blanks out whenever this occurs.
    Error: ..You’re doing it again.
    #54: What?
    Error: That thing you do where you talk like an NPC or something, it’s kinda weird.
    #54: What are you talking about? Did I say something again?
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Knowledge of what 'dogs' are was erased from #54's brain at the Student Factory, along with all her other Earth memories. When The Janitor was describing everything that made Earth great, she found the very idea of dogs as magical as regular girls find unicorns to be.
  • I Just Want to Be Free
  • Improbable Weapon User: An empty paint can from the art room. So far, she's used it in three different battles!
  • Nerds Love Tough Schoolwork: The first time #54's personal inventory is examined, it's found to contain: the cutesy barrette Pink Girl had just given her, homework, and an almost-empty pen.
    #54: Ms Board says gray-zoners aren’t capable of learning like we are.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Even for a Student.
  • Twin Desynch: In the beginning, #54 looks absolutely identical to ALL her female classmates. A cutesy barrette here, a slight hairstyle change there… she's starting to look more distinct.

#56 / Wires

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wires2.png
Look on the bright side: in this School's detention, there's no homework to worry about!

#24: ...Oh, sorry, I meant '56'...
Wires: No, that's not what I meant. I'm Wires.
#24: Wires?
Wires: Yeah. Down here, survivin' the scavengers earns you a name.

A boy who was thrown in detention long ago, managing to survive where so many of his classmates did not.


  • Action Survivor: His classmates' corpses are piled up like hills, yet he's managed to adapt to life in detention.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Wires no longer answers to his old student number.
  • Eye Scream: One eye is just an empty socket. The other is cracked just like glass. Though Wires doesn't seem pained by this, it's a skin-crawling sight.
  • The Stoic: Whatever delicate emotions Wires might've had before being dropped into detention have been hard-boiled out of him.

#73

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/73.png
Let's just say that Harvard University won't be giving this boy's application a long look.

Error: HE'S coming too?

A boy who's honestly a bit doltish and lacking in social graces. Nonetheless, he's still regarded as one of the 'coolest' kids in School, and a personal friend of #54.


  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: By far, #73 is the biggest walking punchline in the entire webcomic. But when his back's against the wall and the bad guys are out to eat him alive, this Butt-Monkey's no shrimpy little capuchin, but a tough baboon who can bite back.
    73 drags his sharp weapons down the Screaminomicon’s covers…. WOAH! It’s a critical hit for 30 damage!
    [The Screaminomicon screeches in agony and releases 73′s leg!]
    The Screaminomicon: AAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
    [END OF ROUND: Your enemy’s health is currently at 15 out of 70 HP! - !CRITICAL STATUS!]
  • Edible Bludgeon: A rock-hard hamburger bun is #73's first weapon.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Error really doesn't care for him at all. He's much closer to #54, but even her patience with him is thin.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Two words; he's tactless.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He very quickly gets on Error's nerves for being such an opinionated loudmouth. But when he sees Ghoulash intends to butcher Error, #73 doesn't even think twice about joining her fight against the killer cook.
    #54: I think we’re gonna have to fight it.
    Error: Ugh... Fine, but I am NOT touching this thing with my bare hands.
    #73: …I’ll help!
    #54: 73??
  • Paste Eater
    #54: (to Error) He totally eats glue.
    #73: I HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM.
  • Popular Is Dumb: His popularity definitely got a fresh shot in the arm when his classmates watched him face off against Ghoulash with #54 and Error.
  • School Idol: Early in the story, #54 had said that #73 was one of the four most popular kids in the School.
  • Token Guy: He's the one male party member in Error's group.
  • Worf Had the Flu: #73 loses a lot of oil during his fight with the Screaminomicon. Since oil is like blood for Students, he's rendered too lightheaded to help Error fight Feartre, later on.

#104

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/104.png
Guts trump sense.

Error: So… We have this sort of team going on, and what we’re doing is-
#104: Taking down the teachers and getting out of here?
Error: …Uh-How-
#104: I’m in.

A female Student who attends the same Language Arts class as Error and #73.


  • Action Girl: #104's the one who delivers the killing blows to the Screamnomicon.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Killed by the Treyepod in much the same way that chestbursters kill the humans they're inserted inside... except the Treyepod was fully grown at the time of its 'birth.'
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: She genuinely takes pains to monitor her language, even after offing a teacher.
    #104: I’m sick of all this ominious jack everywhere…
  • School Idol: Like #73, she's reported to be one of the School's most popular kids.
  • Worf Had the Flu: A stomachache prevents her from helping Error fight Feartre.

Hall Monitor (HM) / Jeremy / (Lavender Boy)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hall_monitor.png
Better have a hall pass on you!

A boy whose job it is to patrol the School's halls for unauthorized students.


  • Death Wish: He begs the girls to end his life. Eventually, someone else grants his wish.
  • Shock Collar: An ever-present source of torture for this boy; it shocks him anytime he shows even the tiniest sign of slackening as a hall monitor.
  • Technically a Smile: Apparently, while regular Students are expected to be perpetually deadpan, Hall Monitors are expected to be perpetually smiling.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: First, he's the only known student whose forehead is marked with letters instead of numbers: 'HM.' He also seems to have been specifically designed for hall-monitoring, instead of academic learning. And he still recalls his true name: Jeremy.
  • Verbal Tic: Constantly speaks like someone undergoing serious electrocution. For obvious reasons.
  • You Have Failed Me: When the girls got the best of him in a brawl, someone on the School staff expressed his disappointment by goring Jeremy with some kind of freaky alien spikes and writing 'FAILURE' on the wall in his own robotic oil. (So much for seniority.)
  • You Shall Not Pass!: He pulls this on any student he finds without a hall pass. For this reason, he's the first enemy Pink Girl physically fights.
  • You Will Be Spared: Unlike all their other Students, the teachers have exempted the Hall Monitor from ever having to graduate. Thus, he has endured living at The School for multiple 'semesters.'

Red Girl

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/red_girl.png
Well, I suppose as long as you're not asking for anything too EXCESSIVE...

Red Girl: Sooo, my mind was stolen and all modded, so was my body. And- ok, nitty to the gritty, can you get my brain from The School and put it in my body? My brain's in a Student.
Pink Girl: How-Wh-Ok, where's your body?
Red Girl: In the factory.

A mysterious and possibly supernatural girl who first appears in a dream of Pink Girl's.


  • Dream Walker: The Red Girl first meets the Pink Girl in a black purgatorial void. She tells the Pink Girl this "probably" isn't death, and that she'll be "waking up soon." Ergo; Red Girl has slipped into Pink Girl's slumbering subconscious in her debut scene.
  • Ghostly Goals: Reuniting her brain with her body.
  • Irrelevant Sidequest: Let's not mince words: Pink Girl already has her hands full trying to escape the School with her friends and return to Earth. She has a very small window of time to pull this off before The Principal enacts his Armageddon on the School. Infiltrating the Student Factory to find Red Girl's body on top of all that... would appear to be more trouble than it's worth, regrettably.
  • Mysterious Waif: She's a girl of many enigmas. Why can she enter others' dreams? Why is it that Error's pink and this girl's red are the only colors without an X in Ms. Quinn's paintings? And why is The Principal keeping her locked away in a dark room?
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: So Red Girl says her brain is in "a" Student. No number given. No way of differentiating her brain from all the rest. And Red Girl's very much a stranger to Pink Girl; thus, she wouldn't be able to recognize any personality quirks the Student-with-Red-Girl's-brain might demonstrate.
  • No Name Given
    Pink Girl: Who are you?
    Red Girl: A friend!
  • Prophet Eyes: They may not be 'white,' but they're all sclera, no pupils or irises. Although Error gets these same sort of eyes when she's in this dark purgatory she first meets Red Girl in.

     The Principal of the School 

The Principal

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/principal.gif
The Principal is not your pal.

Are you sure you want to click this? 

#54: Graduating classes enter the principal’s office and never leave…

The highest authority in the School.


  • A God Am I
    The Principal: WHO DO YOU THINK CONCEPTUALIZED HALF OF THESE TEACHERS? WHO DO YOU THINK CREATED THESE CHILDREN? I CAN CONTROL THE TEACHERS. I CAN CONTROL THE STUDENTS. I CAN CONTROL HER. I’M ALL POWERFUL. I’M A GOD. A GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Big Brother Is Watching You: Totalitarian dictators wish they could listen in on their subjects like this Principal can.
    Commentator: What's it like communicating with The Principal?
    Miss Board: Easy as pie! He hears everything, so you just have to say it out loud and he’ll get the message!
  • Bigger Bad
  • The Caligula: Although nobody in this School would know the actual Caligula from Calvin Coolidge, The Principal knows himself to be this sort of person, and the rest of his staff quickly picks up on this as well, with each new underling he slaughters...
  • Combat Tentacles: His signature execution method.
  • Creepy Changing Painting: Those are his eyes on all those LURN posters throughout the School.
  • Deader Than Dead: Any person who enters the Principal's office is regarded as this by those who have not. You could almost replace the term 'Principal' with 'gas chamber' for the first portion of the story, and practically nothing would be lost.
  • Domestic Abuse: Appears to have at some point been in this sort of relationship with Ms. Board. He remains possessive of her and continues to use her low self-esteem as a means of controlling her. She's had enough .
  • Eldritch Abomination: He's a Lovecraftian archfiend given a school theme.
  • Genius Loci: He insists to the Commentators that HE IS the School, itself!
    The Principal: I’M THE ONE HOLDING THE SCHOOL HERE, YOU KNOW. DO YOU THINK I’M BLUFFING OR SOMETHING? JUST LOOK AT THIS PLACE! THIS IS ALL ME!
  • Just Toying with Them: Toying sadistically with Error, the other Students, his faithful teachers, and most especially the Commentators. To him, this School semester is but one final game before he burns the rec room down.
    The Principal: PERHAPS I’LL LET YOU GO AND WATCH YOU TRY IN VAIN TO SAVE ALL OF THEM. OOOOOH! THAT WOULD BE FUN! EVERYONE DIES IN TEARS, AND IN THE END… I T ‘ S A L L Y O U R F A U L T ! B E C A U S E Y O U C O U L D N ‘ T L U R N !
  • Insult Backfire: Go ahead and call him an evil monster. He revels in it.
  • Kryptonite-Proof Suit/Kryptonite Is Everywhere: In a Q&A session with The Commentators, The Principal insisted that there are no resources in his School capable of starting a fire. Except...
    Commentator: Your students literally bleed oil.
    The Principal: (blushing pink) WELL... THERE’S NO LIGHTERS OR ANYTHING!
  • Laughing Mad: This guy really spams the word 'ha.'
  • Mad Eye: His eyeballs are NEVER still.
  • No Name Given: He's always just 'The Principal.' Not even a Punny Name for him.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Never exits his office. Never heard speaking to others; not via the school's loudspeaker or even through his office door. E-mails and every form of writing are things he never uses. One would almost think he's merely a made-up, nonexistent boogeyman. Yet any individual or group who enters the Principal's office has no hope of stepping back out. Something is in that room. One powerful something.
    • Another example: upon learning that Pink Girl is a grey-zoner, Ms. Board says that she'll 'need to speak to the principal about this,' and pulls the new kid out of her classroom so she and he can have some privacy.
    You can hear her talking to nobody in the classroom.
  • Omnicidal Maniac
    The Principal: I’LL BE HONEST. I’VE GROWN TIRED OF PLAYING WITH THEM ALL. I CAN ALWAYS FIND ANOTHER ZONE, AFTER ALL. I’VE COME TO A DESICION. ONE LAST CYCLE, FOR OLD TIME’S SAKES… AND THEN. THEY’LL ALL BE GONE. THE TEACHERS, THE STUDENTS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE. I ‘ L L D E S T R O Y I T A L L .
  • Orcus on His Throne: Eternally occupies his office, awaiting students who have either graduated or been expelled.
  • Surreal Symbolic Heads : In his humanoid form, he has one enormous eyeball upon his neck.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He drops the most f-bombs of the entire cast.
  • Time Abyss: He can confidently attach an awful lot of 'and evers' after saying the word 'forever.'
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You
    The Principal: ARE YOU SURPRISED? THAT SOMETHING IN THIS WORLD HAS MORE POWER THAN YOU? YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN PLAYING WITH YOU SINCE OUR DARLING HEROINE AWOKE.
  • The Walls Have Eyes: So does the floor and ceiling, even if you can't perceive them being there. And they're all his.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: He regards everyone from Burgrr, Inc. with disgust and some amount of unease. Anytime business meetings need to be held between The School and Burgrr, Inc., The Principal sends Ms. Board and Mx. Lator as his representatives... since no part of their bodies can be cooked into food.
  • Tsundere: Complete with Luminescent Blush.
  • Verbal Tic: The Principal's words are often prefaced with a '>'. In the world of Interactive Comics, that '>' signifies a command given. In other words, his voice is always commanding.
  • Villain Override: He's capable of seizing control of Error's body, and froze her in place. The Commentators needed to confront him directly to get him to relinquish control.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The Principal has all the makings of a top-tier Cosmic Horror Story supervillain. He only needs to work out some kind of coping mechanism for having Rule 34 applied to him, and he's set to go.
    • Also, he doesn't seem to be a huge fan of fire.

The Owner

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_owner.png
The PRINCIPAL has an OWNER?!

The Principal: CAN'T I KILL THEM NOW? I'M SO IMPATIENT!
The Owner: No. Wait for it.

The one who outranks The Principal.


  • Mister Big: The Owner's eyes are TINY next to The Principal's.
  • No Name Given: Next to no information has been given about this person. The Owner's not even officially called 'The Owner' within the story proper.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: All-red eyes, no pupils. All-red eyebrows too.
  • The Man Behind the Man: This individual talks down to The Principal like the parent of an immature boy.
  • Unexpected Character: No one was expecting that there was a higher power that The Principal had to answer to!
    #54: Who was that whispering to the Principal over the loudspeakers?
    #73: I’unno…. I’ve never heard that voice before.

Treyepod

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/treyepod.png
You don't stand a chance.

Treyepod: BLF ZIV HGZMWRMT HGROO? R DROO XIFHS BLF ORPV R XIFHSVW NB TVMGOV RMXFYZGLI.note 

A murderous giant thing spawned from The Principal.


     School Teachers and Their Assistants 

Ms. Whitney Board

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miss_board.png
Remember that one teacher you just couldn't seem to get along with?

Pink Girl: ...Oh no! I forgot my…learny..thing! I should go get that and most definitely come back after retrieving it!
Ms. Board’s grip on your arm tightens, and you feel something snap.
Ms. Board: Why don’t you take a seat?

The head homeroom teacher.


  • Affably Evil: She's capable of being a pleasant conversationalist.
  • Archenemy: Rather speedily establishes this relationship with the Pink Girl.
  • Being Evil Sucks: By the final class cycle, she's certainly not boastful about what kind of teacher she's been.
    Ms. Board: If I was a good person, I’d look back at those times I hurt you and think “Maybe that wasn’t such a good thing of me to do”… If I was good… I’d have had enough self respect to save myself and everyone when I could. Was I a good person at some point in my life? Perhaps; I can’t remember anymore.
  • Genius Bruiser: It's unknown whether Board's intelligence is actually at genius-level, but she's educated enough to teach a class, ruthlessly cunning, and strong enough to break bones and doors.
  • Evil And Sadistic Teacher: Breaking Error's wrist, then forcing her to sit through both a class of hers and an interrogation before dismissing her established Miss Board as a sadistic bully. Her evil was revealed in crushing Gretadan like a roach under her shoe, kicking #24 down into detention, and ripping out the a portion of the Pink Girl's head with her bare fists.
  • Invisible Anatomy: Much of Miss Board's body is completely invisible. Most noticeably her hands and neck.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: The Principal puts her through no end of mistreatment, certainly. And by the final class cycle, she's intent on helping the Students escape the School, somehow.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She likes Brandi's face.
    Ms. Board: It isn't often you see beauty like hers.
  • Punny Name: Whitney Board. Ironic, really, because her head's definitely not a whiteboard, but a blackboard. A green-colored blackboard, at that.
  • Tears of Joy: Along with much joyful laughter, when Error gives her bandaids right after she's finished telling her what a good person she's not.
  • The Dragon: Think of her as the Darth Vader to The Principal's Emperor Palpatine… if 'Palpatine' were fifty times more cloistered and antisocial.

Ms. Ida Carter Yuu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ida_carter_yuu.png
She's a very insightful teacher.

Ms. Yuu: Hi!
(Pink Girl looks all around, not seeing who's speaking to her)
Ms. Yuu: Down here!
(Pink Girl looks straight down seeing a small eyeball on tiny legs.)
Ms. Yuu: Welcome to Biology! You must be the new girl!

The Biology teacher.


  • Animate Body Parts: She's the left eyeball of Anna Tomi.
  • Fired Teacher: Because she tried to escape the School during the final class cycle, The Principal 'fired' her the same way he 'fired' Miss Quinn.
  • Miss Big: Ida stands only a little bit taller than a regular human eyeball would if it were pulled out of its socket and set upon the floor. Because of those little stick legs of hers.
  • Nice Girl: So far, Ida's the easiest teacher to get along with.
  • Oculothorax: Ida's a tiny sapient talking eyeball capable of walking on tiny legs.
  • Punny Name: Miss I.C. Yuu.

Anna Tomi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anna_tomi.png
So which do you think is her best side?

[Anna doesn’t even speak.. Actually, you don’t think her mouth even opens. She silently begins rooting in a drawer with her face.]
Ms. Yuu: …Give her a bit to find it!
Error: …I could just grab it myself you know.
Ms Yuu: No, No! Anna’s got it!
Anna: Mmmmm HHHM~!

The Biology teacher's first assistant.


Ms. Iris Cena Yuu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iris_cena_yuu.png
Nobody knows the trouble she's seen…

Iris: (discussing The Principal) …He took my sister away from me… She never did anything wrong… She’s never done anything to hurt anyone… T-This is rather cruel to say… …But beings like him…..should be burning in hell.

The twin of Ida Carter Yuu, who served as both a second teaching assistant for her sister, and an eyeball for Anna.


Mx. Calc U. Lator

0.7734 to you too, teach.

Mx. Lator: 01001110 01001111 00100000 01001001 00100000 01010011 01000001 01001001 01000100 00100000 01000111 01000101 01010100 00100000 01010010 01001001 01000100 00100000 01001111 01000110 00100000 01010100 01001000 01000101 01010011 01000101 00100000 01000110 01010101 01000011 01001011 01001001 01001110 01000111 00100000 01000001 01001110 01010100 01010011.
Lesdan: It says take a seat!

The math teacher.


  • Ax-Crazy: Hates ants crawling around with a passion. Get too close when it's patience runs thin, and it's STAB-STAB-STAB-STAB with its tree-sized pencil-legs...
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Because 'Calc U. Lator' doesn't even rightfully qualify as a pun.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Which suits Mx. Lator just fine. Though Mx. Lator is fully sapient, it is very comfortable with being a machine, and machine-appropriate pronouns.
  • Pet the Dog: Mx. Lator gets his simply by allowing Error to enter his classroom tardy with just a warning. He's nowhere near as forgiving to poor #24, moments later...
  • Sinister Silhouettes
    Error: …So the teacher's in that completely unlit corner that’s surrounded by dead batteries and creepy cobwebs...?
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Whenever it speaks, usually what it's actually saying is far more profane than what its assistants extrapolate.
  • Speaks in Binary: As seen above.
  • Spider Tank: Pink Girl estimates its calculator body to be around ten feet tall.

Gretadan and Lesdan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gretadan_and_lesdan.png
Mathematical symbols and carnivorous fangs, together at last!

Lesdan: The boss wouldn’t like any disruptions in its classroom, would it, Gretaden?
Gretadan: No way, Lesdan!

Mx. Lator's teaching assistants, who primarily help translate its binary code.


  • Mister Big: They're both around the same height as Ida Carter Yuu.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Lesdan will never face left. Gretadan will never face right.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: Even though they're actually said to be a pair of alligators, this trope still applies. They're certainly not friendly towards Students.
  • Punny Name: 'Less than' and 'greater than.'
  • Serious Business: Don't go dissing mathematics around them.
    Commentator: Yo man, fuck this class! When's lunch, anyway?
    Gretaden: what the fuck u just say bout math?!
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They both proudly identify as 'goons.'

Prof. Millie Lidre

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/millie_lidre.png
Wonder if all that cracked glass hurts the Professor's arms?

Prof. Lidre: III HAAAVVVEEE A SPPPEECIIIIAALLL ASSSSIIIIIGGGGNNMMMEEEENNNNTT FOOOOORRR YOOOOOUUUU.

The Science teacher.


  • Animate Inanimate Object/Brain in a Jar: It's hard to tell which parts represent the 'true' body of Millie Lidre. The purple gunk? The eyeball floating inside said gunk? The broken flask? The necktie? Maybe all of the above?
  • Poisonous Person: Toxic to the touch.
  • Punny Name: "Milliliter." The unit of measurement used for test tubes.
  • This Is Something She's Got to Do Herself: The moment Error walked into the Science room, Millie Lidre assigned her to kill the monstrous Yanderma, who was running amok in the classroom. The Professor treated this like some remedial class assignment; offering zero assistance to Error. The poor girl couldn't even turn to her classmates for help, since Millie was keeping them all busy with a test. It didn't end well for Error.
  • Verbal Tic: Professor Lidre really likes to STRRRREEEETTTCCHH OOOOUTTT WORRRRDSS.

Ms. Mannique Quinn

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art_room.png
Could be an avant-garde portrayal of the bourgeois ennui inherent in Neo-Industrial sociopolitical decadence. Probably not, though.

Are you sure you want to click this? 
Like a heroic, kid-friendly Dr. Octopus… who is artistic and wooden like Pinocchio.

Error: …Sooooo…Uh…Whose paintings are these?
#54: I think it was the art teacher! She got fired around the beginning of the year.
Error: Oh jeez-So they killed her basically.

This lady used to teach art. After she was fired, the School stopped offering art as a class altogether.


  • Abandoned Area: Nobody seems to have really entered into Ms. Quinn's classroom since her termination, making it the most private room within The School. Error uses this to her advantage. It becomes a de facto secret hideout where she can brainstorm plans with her friends.
  • Back from the Dead: Because the Principal didn't have the faintest concept about concept cores.
  • Fired Teacher: Except that what 'detention' is for Students, 'getting fired' is for teachers.
  • Gotta Kill Em All: When the Pink Girl and #54 enter the art room, they see large paintings of different-colored blotches, each with an X crossed through it... save for a red blotch and a pink blotch. The distinct implication is that all these different children are dead; (essentially, the paintings amount to a hit list with colors in place of names.) Because it's 'artistically abstract,' the girls, themselves don't make that connection, though they do find the paintings ominous.
  • Hope Spot: Whoever Miss "Still Hope" might be.
  • Living Toy: Living, woman-sized artistic mannequin.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Applies, though these "bangs" are a carved-on feature!
  • Posthumous Character: Was 'terminated' long before Pink Girl's arrival on this campus.
  • Punny Name: We don't even need to see her body to know that Ms. Mannique Quinn must've been an artistic mannequin.
  • Turn To The Light Side: It's very likely The Principal fired Miss Quinn because she was helping Students escape the School.

The Screamonomicon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screaming_book.png
WHERE'S ITS MUTE BUTTON?!

#73: I think it’s annoyed, it usually decides on some sort of title…
Error: ….Is this… ACTUALLY THE TEACHER?
#73: Hey, I was serious for once! It…doesn’t really have a name… It keeps changing like that. We just kinda call it the Screaminomicon.
Error: …Why do you call it the-
The Screaminomicon: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

The Language Arts teacher.


  • Blink-and-You-Miss-It: The title and author on The Screaminomicon's front cover change blindingly fast... but a few of them include "Helpme by: me", "Getting SECRETS!! by: Jib Janeen", and "Ruining Everything by: Heinrich".
  • Books That Bite: Clamps its chompers down on #73's leg like a miniature crocodile, and refuses to let go.
  • Conveniently Interrupted Document: At the bottom of the Screamonomicon's front cover are the words "Courtesy Of", but the name of the person in question has been blotted out.
  • Dying Curse: "He'll Make You Pay For What You've by: Done To Me."
  • Evil Teacher: Bit down on #73's leg, intending to bleed him to death. He's an all-too-enthusiastic minion of The Principal.
  • Irony: A friend of Ms. Quinn delivered The Screaminomicon as a practical joke to infuriate the teaching staff. But they all got along with each other like butter and bread, and it was made into a teacher, itself.
    • The Principal assigned a very uncommunicative thing that barely talks and almost only screeches to teach kids the art of language.
  • Nickname Basis: Not even The Principal knows what this book should be called! The Students were the ones who nicknamed The Screamonomicon, because they somehow sensed that "AAAAAAHHH!!!!" wasn't actually their Language Arts teacher's rightful name.
  • Overly Long Scream: The Book!
  • Pet the Dog: One could argue the Screaminomicon has one tiny saving grace: because it never gave any tests or homework, it was impossible for Students to fail its classes. If only all the other teachers could've been equally apathetic...
  • Sadistic Teacher: The Screaminomicon lets out bloodcurdling shrieks as a way of silencing Students. And all throughout its classes in general. That's as "academic" as his "teaching" gets.
  • Shout-Out: One of The Screaminomicon's titles happens to be "Dr. Phage's Hospital by Bogleech"
  • Troll: As 73 puts it, "It's also kind of a dick."

Mr. Plyo Jacques

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jacques.png
But of course a crustacean teaches gym to human kids at this School. The shapes of their bodies are practically indistinguishable!

Mr. Jacques: [SCOLDING WHISTLE BLOW]
#54: Ah-H-Hi Mr. Jacques…! I know, we’re late…
#42: …Plyo.
Mr. Jacques: [HARSHER SCOLDING WHISTLE BLOW]

The Gym teacher.


  • Giant Crab: A hermit crab whose body is striped like a basketball, and with a duffel bag for a shell.
  • Nice Guy: Or at least, he's not as horrible as he could be, (so far.)
    Commentator: What’s your opinion on Mr. Jacques? As a person? And in terms of his teaching methods?
    The Principal: NEEDS TO USE THOSE CLAWS OF HIS MORE.
  • Punny Name: "Pylojacquesidae" refers to a family of hermit crabs, as well as plyo jacks, referring to a muscular exercise. Also, his last name sounds exactly like 'jock,' spoken with a French inflection. Un nom approprié pour un professeur de gymnastique, oui?
  • Speaking Simlish: Communicates entirely through blowing that whistle of his.

Equatoo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/equatoo.png
Pain equals joy!

Commentator: (instructing #42) >Ask him if his cousins were ALSO weirded out by his masochism.
Equatoo: They don’t get it! It was “Equatoo, stop lettin’ Lator step on ya!” “Yer freakin’ out da kids!” EVERY day!
Commentator: >Was THAT the REAL reason why they rejected him?
Equatoo: ……………..…….Urgh…

Formerly one of Mx. Lator's assistants. Currently, he serves as Mr. Jacques' assistant.


  • Black Sheep: Gretadan and Lesdan disliked Equatoo so much, they chased him out from the math classroom, and seem to be actively preventing him from ever reentering it.
  • Combat Sadomasochist
    Equatoo: (who has 30 HP) ONLY 22 HP taken? You can do better than that!!!!!!!
    [Equatoo heals himself… And maxes out his HP!]
    Equatoo: Try again!!! Aim for 30! Splatter my blood on the walls~!
  • Death Wish
    #42: You’re so small though, what if we…KILL you? ON ACCIDENT, I mean.
    Equatoo: Oh I wouldn’t mind! I really wouldn’t mind if you killed me~
  • Floating Limbs: Lampshaded.
    Commentator: Is anything even holding Equatoo's top and bottom halves together?
    Yamemeda: Faith.
  • Informed Ability: #54 explained that Equatoo's capable of inflict the RAGE status condition, which makes his opponents hit harder but drops their defenses significantly. He never gets the chance to use this power, though.
  • Mister Big: Equatoo's a member of the same species of fanged mathematical symbols as Lesdan and Gretadan.
  • Nice Hat: It floats over his head like an angel's halo! Or at least it used to, because now #54's the one who has it!
  • No-Sell: #54 informed #42 that "attacking Equatoo will also inflict damage on yourself because his teeth get in the way." But Equatoo learns that #54 wields a paint can in battle, and he doesn't even TRY to bite THAT.
  • Punny Name: 'Equal to.'

Nurse Brandi Aid

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brandi_aid.png
Miss Bandaid Solutions, herself.

Pink Girl: Look, can I have a cast or something, a band-aid's not gonna work.
Brandi: Oh, it's not? What's wrong?
Pink Girl: …My wrist is BROKEN.

She heals sick and injured Students.


  • 1-Up: The band-aids Brandi makes have phenomenal curative capabilities. They can heal any injury they're placed upon, (albeit not quite instantaneously) and even reverse death, if enough are used. More's the pity that Brandi and the Pink Girl have now become sworn enemies.
  • Bandage Mummy: Only a single eyeball of hers is not covered in band-aids.
  • Bizarre Human Biology/Nightmare Face: When her bandages are removed, it is possible to see that Brandi's flesh resembles the 'skin' of a raw, uncooked meatball. She has one left eye but no right eye whatsoever. A grotesque Vagina Dentata serves as her mouth, featuring teeth poking out of her lips, and a long pointed tongue. Yet both Miss Board and Word of God insist that she is a true human being… albeit a greatly mutated one.
  • Comically Inept Healing/Super Doc: Brandi's both these things at the same time. One one hand, she has no proper medical knowledge whatsoever, and it shows when kids come to her for healing. However, her band-aids more than completely negates her personal ineptitude.
  • Evil All Along: Starts off greeting Pink Girl cordially, giving her good advice, a hall pass, and even drawing her a map of the school. Brandi later turns around and immediately betrays the Pink Girl to Miss Board when the kid is desperate to hide from her in her infirmary.
    Brandi: YEAHH TEAR HER UP BABY
  • Forgetful Jones: Error ends up dying her first death in Brandi's infirmary, at the hands of Brandi's girlfriend, with Brandi herself cheering said girlfriend on. The next time Error and Brandi meet, the nurse has completely forgotten who Error even is. And Error doesn't exactly blend into the background, especially not at a school like this.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: In Brandi and Board's case, the trope title would be 'It's not you, it's our murderous psycho boss.' To protect Brandi from the Principal, Board has her sent to another zone.
  • Parental Neglect: She's an appalling mother to both The Janitor and Merchant.
  • Perky Female Minion: Bubbly and upbeat as the star of a TV show aimed at preschoolers.
  • School Nurse: Her job in the School. Gets mixed results.
  • The Ditz: Poor memory retention, childish personality, and no formal medical training; Brandi's ditziness is played for dark comedy and light comedy alike.

The Janitor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/janitor.png
Just here to clean.

Error: …Can you tell 54 what the normal world is like?
The Janitor: Normal?
Error: Like-Gray zone, I guess.
The Janitor: …s’alright.
Error: …COMPARED TO HERE.
The Janitor: …s’ok.

This fellow maintains cleanliness throughout the School.


  • Blob Monster: He's actually the exact same species of slime monster as Merchant. But where Merchant is more of a naked amorphous puddle, The Janitor takes on a more refined, clothed humanoid form by default.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Just 'The Janitor.' Same as in Scrubs.
  • Food as Bribe: Whereas Merchant supplies 'goods,' The Janitor seems to be more of a 'services' provider. And it doesn't take a huge banquet to buy his cooperation, either. For a lollipop, he'll be your spokesman for whatever you want. For chewing gum, he stood by and kept his silence while #54 took Error's then-dead body from the detention chute.
  • Hates Small Talk: Responds tersely to chitchat.
  • Neat Freak: His commitment to cleanliness what shifted him from regular Scavenger to custodian.
  • The Promised Land: For a guy who doesn't like to chat, The Janitor's a surprisingly silver-tongued fellow. Originally, #54 didn't care so much about reaching Planet Earth in particular as simply escaping the School. But then Error paid The Janitor to really sell Earth to her, and sell he did. Now #54 regards Earth in much the same terms as Flapjack regards Candied Island.
    • The Janitor later sought to bring Merchant to a 'Promised Land;' a zone where it was "all safes." Tragically, The Janitor only got as far as talking to Merchant about it, before The Principal did him in.
  • You Have Failed Me: The Janitor meets the same sticky end as Jeremy. Only with Mold-B-Gone.

Merchant

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/merchant23.png
Seller of school supplies for scrumptious snacks since he was first shoved inside.

Merchant: give you WONDERFUL MARVELOUS things for only food! please give me food please please please

A sapient mass of slime who sells random odds and ends from inside one of the School's lockers.


  • all lowercase letters: His dialogue. Except when he's excited, then its CAPSLOCK. And No Punctuation Period, for good measure.
  • And Your Reward Is Edible: Completely inverted. In exchange for edibles, Merchant rewards customers with whatever he's acquired.
  • Beneath Notice: Of pretty much every person on the School Staff except for The Janitor.
    The Principal: WHO THE FUCK IS MERCHANT?
  • Blob Monster: The same species as the Janitor, in fact.
  • Invincible Minor Minion: Partially inverted: Merchant is a nigh-invincible ally. Nothing hurts him in battle.
  • No-Sell/Weaksauce Weakness: Merchant is the only being known to have a complete immunity to The Principal's spikes. Unless, of course, The Principal were to coat his spikes in Mold-B-Gone, the way he did with The Janitor; then they'd produce the intended effect on Merchant.
  • Shopkeeper: As his name suggests.
  • Stuffed into a Locker: Merchant lives in his locker like an oyster in its shell.
  • Tagalong Kid: Unusually for a Shopkeeper, #54 is able to convince Merchant to join her as a party member. Merchant's choice is understandable, though, since he's a lonely kid, and The Principal intends to murder absolutely everyone in The School.
  • Tentacle Rope: Merchant doesn't always wait for his clients to come to him on their time…
  • Tragic Keepsake: The Janitor's jacket.
  • Whip It Good: In combat, he can form parts of himself into whips and flails to attack enemies with.

Metallic Double Doors

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metallic_double_doors.png
Ready for lunch, kid?

Doors: We just got clearance to start truckin’ in this zone, sure was a hassle gettin’ here!
Error: What do you mean “We”?
Doors: Now, who else could I be don talkin about? I’m talkin’ about theFOODINATION OF A LIFETIME! A MEAT DREAM OF PURE MEALINATION!!!

A living set of doors connecting the cafeteria to the rest of the School.


  • Helpful Mook: He's a much kinder set of doors than his green counterpart from The Hospital. Not only for having a more pleasant personality, but he supplies an invaluable hint to Error when Meatlet Jr turns enraged, saving her from certain death.
  • Hollywood Tourette's: 'Foodination of a lifetime,' you say? Mmm-mm! Those Burgrr workers sure know how to whet the appetite, don't they?
  • Invisible to Normals: Somewhat inverted: the super-studious cyborg children are unable to hear the voice of the Doors... while Error can. The Students do know the Doors are paranormal, though.
    #73: Uh… Are the doors being weird and psychic again?
    Error ..Wait, you can’t hear them?
    #73: No…
    #54: We know they do that sometimes though, it’s ok.
  • The Little Cafeteria That Wasn't There Yesterday
    Error: Ok, you were definitely not here before. It was just a smooth wall before.

Ghoulash

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ghoulash.png
Little-known fact; about 68% of what's served in The School's cafeteria is scooped directly off this cook's body.

Ghoulash: …G.GM Mmmrrlbblle… mmmeMEEEEAAAATTTtttt

The cook at The School's cafeteria, who's affiliated with Burgrr, Inc.


  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Ghoulash was in the midst of trying to kill a 9th grade girl to use as a meat source. Said girl threw a dinky little worm that had originally come from one of Ghoulash's own hamburgers. Ghoulash was satisfied and lost interest in the girl.
  • Blob Monster: It's like some wizard took over 100 pounds of slop from a restaurant's dumpster, brought it to life with a magic spell, attached an apron and a hairnet, and assigned it cafeteria duties.
  • I'm An Evil Humanitarian Chef: In proud Burgrr Inc. tradition, Ghoulash is perfectly willing to use someone who's come to eat its food as an ingredient in a future meal.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Even though Meatlet Jr. calls Ghoulash 'Meatmama,' he insists that Ghoulash is not technically female. The narrative prose also emphatically applies the 'it' pronoun to the School's cook.
  • Lethal Chef: The things Ghoulash serves children as lunch food are ambiguously edible at best. Although #54 was able to recover battle damage by eating her own lunch.
  • One-Hit-Point Wonder: Well, five hit points, actually. But consider its willingness to square off against three kids with 50 hit points each! Collectively, that's 30 times its own!
  • Punny Name: Ghoulish goulash.
  • The Quiet: Besides the word 'meat,' most of Ghoulash's dialogue amounts to swampy burbling. And Ghoulash doesn't even do THAT very much.

Meatlet Jr.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mealet_baby.png
Unbearable pest.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mealet_terror.png
Unbeatable nightmare!

Meatlet Jr: meatmama very big, very defense, but still…
[MEATLET JR HAS BECOME ENRAGED!]

Ghoulash's offspring.


  • Blob Monster: Runs in the family.
  • Enfant Terrible: Meatlet's got no problem with killing other kids.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: "Meatlet Jr" sounds like the name of an enemy Kirby might swallow in one of his video games. Looks the part, too.
  • Hulking Out: Triggered if anyone scores even an infinitesimal amount of damage on his "mama."
  • Invincible Minor Minion: #54 says that only one thing is capable of killing a thing like Meatlet; a special antibacterial cleaning liquid which Error doesn't have.
  • Mook Chivalry: Nigh Invulnerable though he is, Meatlet Jr is completely aware that he lives within an RPG-Mechanics Verse, and honors the rules of turn-based combat.
    #73: …Hey shouldn’t we do something? Won’t it attack while we’re talking?
    Enraged Meatlet Jr: NO̴̼̞̝͍̲͓ ͍̰Ǹ͎͈̬̩̮̖ͅO͚͎͚̰̘ ̧̪̬͇̦̝̬̰ ̠̖͔̳ͅW̲O͇̗͢N͔̭̘͈T̙ I̷͕͉̲̞̫͎ ̧̣͖K̹N̜̥Ò͎̮͈̼̺̬͈W͞S̜͚̥̻̺̝͢ ͙͞T̵̫̗͉̘̞H̴̹E̪̟̠͉̖̳ ̢R̭̪U͈̲̩̥̳̫LE̸̥̲̲̲̮S̢͍̥̹̘̼͔̳ ̪̜̗̝͝ͅO͓͙͖̠̞͜ͅͅF͏̜̠̟̹̙̣̞ ̭̘̠̙͎̩F̫̘̩͕̭̕I̵͍̘̣͎̳̝G̷̭̦͍̱H̝̥͖̠̬̪Ṱ͖̼S̠̳̲̤̼.̪.͙̫̝͖̺͘.̀ G̥̖̦̯O̡̫̤̯T̶̙͎̣SA͍̟̣͎̹ ̛W̜A̼̹̝͓̤͇͡ÍT̯ ̭M̠̭͇͙͝Y̦͇͢ T̼̤͙U͖̼̖͢R̶̲͎̻̪̻ͅN!̥̟̩͔̻̘ ͇͈̠̥̝̼͇͘S̴̱T̰͔͝I̸͇̝̜͖̘ͅL̻̮̩L̯̯͍̕ U T͔U͙R̢͔Ṋ̳̺
  • The Family That Slays Together
    Meatlet Jr: i love my mama and meatmama wansta hurt u so i wansta hurt u too
  • The Symbiote: Meatlet's relationship with Ghoulash is as parasitic as it is familial.
  • We Will Meet Again: When Ghoulash loses interest in Error, Meatlet de-Hulks and follows after his sire, but not before letting it be known that at some point, he'll be picking up where he left off.
    Meatlet Jr: …this isnt ober

     Factory Workforce 

Scavengers

Uh... sorry for trespassing...

Scavengers: OOFFFF….LIIIMIITIITTTZZ…..

Pitch-black humanoids discovered inside the Factory. Ostensibly, the ones who keep the Student Factory running, and process kidnapped children from Earth into School Students.


     Allies Of The Art Teacher 

Dr. Toto Realz

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_realz.png
Nyah~

Miss Quinn: What were you going to do had I not intervened? Fought them?
Dr. Realz: Naw, I was gonnah square up like I was gonnah do this big ahttack to wipe ‘er out… Ahnd at the lahst second boop ‘er nose!
Error: Please don’t boop my nose.
Dr. Realz: That’s makin tha temptahtion WORSE!

The genius responsible for bringing the living math symbols to life, and the first of the Art Teacher's allies that Error and her friends meet.


  • Born To Pun: Dr. Realz loves puns and jokes.
  • Cat Folk: Either a cat or a fox… with purple fur.
  • Evil All Along: When meeting up with cautiously wary-minded new acquaintances, Dr. Realz will cattily play the part of the treacherous villain. Purely for the sake of tweaking them.
    Dr. Realz: Ahre you ahfraid I’ll reveahl my true identity and kill her?
    Miss Quinn: WE JUST DISCUSSED THIS, DOCTOR! NO PRETENDING YOU’RE SECRETLY EVIL!
  • Fun Personified: Dr. Realz is a very lighthearted, carefree soul.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: The Principal spikes Dr. Realz through the chest, and it merely causes the doctor's smile to drop away.
    Dr. Realz: Awright. Ya don't play games. Gonnah take more than that, tho.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist
    Dr. Realz: (when asked what he's a doctor of) Seriahsly, I don’t know! Everything, probahbly!

Messenga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/messenga.png
Will do, y'see?

Messenga: MESSAGE! MESSAGE! FOR YOU, Y’SEE?
Error: …Ok, who are you?
Messenga: MESSENGA! MESSENGA, Y’SEE?

A slime girl who relays messages.


  • Meaningful Name: Messenga acts as a messenger, y'see?
  • Verbal Tic: Messenga ends practically every sentence with a "y'see," y'see?

     Monsters From The Abyss 

Yanderma

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yanderma.png
Yanderma would do anything to be with you.

Yanderma: Let’s be together, SKIN-pai~!
Error: (who has 50 HP) …Did you seriously just call-
[Yanderma runs at you with her weapons… And stabs you for 37 HP! That. That is not good.]

The first monster from The Abyss which Error encounters.


  • Cute and Psycho: For a very permissive definition of 'cute,' but a very straightforward definition of 'psycho.' In addition to all her Student-killing, Yanderma apparently is under the delusion that she's a Japanese schoolgirl.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Yanderma's already eaten multiple Students by the time Prof. Lidre tells Error to deal with her.
  • Insectoid Alien: A large anthropomorphic tick.
  • Look Behind You
    Error: …WOW, WOULD YA LOOK AT THAT! THERE’S A SUPER CUTE EVEN TASTIER GIRL BEHIND YOU!
    Yanderma: Eeeeh~!? Who is it?? Who’s attracting my one and only love’s eyes like this??
    [Yanderma turns around… And you stab her for 18 HP!]
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Error wonders if Yanderma's bow is even attached to anything.
  • Theme Naming: Yanderma is a total Yandere. She's also said to be searching for her twin sister named Tsunderma.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Yanderma's the very first adversary who not only overpowers Error in combat, but wins.
  • Yandere: Creepily insists Error is none other than her beloved "skin-pai" while carving her up with kitchen utensils. It's not until Error's dead that Yanderma realizes she's got the wrong person.
    Yanderma: My skin-pai doesn’t have that many organs… Whoops~.

Feartre

Just what Error needs: a scenery-chewer who'll also chew her up.

Coma & Traja: WELCOOOOOMMMMEEE TO THE SHOW!!!!!

Yanderma's drama teacher.


  • Awesome, Dear Boy: In-Universe. Feartre came to the School specifically to hunt Error down, because gray zoners are apparently reputed to be especially histrionic beings.
    Coma: WE HEARD THERE WAS A GRAY-BREACH IN HERE TOO! GRAY ZONERS…..THEY’RE SO SIMPLE, BUT SO DRAMATIC!
  • Berserk Button: Mentioning, er... The Scottish Play.
  • Deader Than Dead: When Error, #54, and Merchant all beat Feartre in combat, Yanderma shows no grief because she's confident her drama teacher will bounce right back. Merchant disagrees.
    Merchant: …big fishy not comin back
    #54: …Hm?
    Merchant: we killeds tha cores…big fishy gonna be ded
  • Evil Is Hammy: You were expecting anything less from a monster with a theater gimmick?
  • Multiple Head Case: Feartre is a two-headed creature.
  • Punny Name: Instead of 'theatre' it's FEAR-tre. Puns also apply for the individual heads. The head ending in a tragedy mask is named 'Traja,' while the head ending in a comedy mask is named 'Coma.'
  • Turns Red: An Inverted Trope, in this monster's case. Coma and Traja's attacks were more fearsome BEFORE the girls mentioned Macbeth, and they were maddened into crying Tears of Blood.

Folly Culls

You don't want this atop your scalp.

Folly Culls: ……YOUWE HAWING A VEWWWWYYYYY BAD HAIW DAY!

A hair-based monster.


  • Brain Food: Folly slurps out victims' brains through their scalps.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome
    Folly Culls:THAT BAWWETE……IT CHANGES TOO MUCH… NOT STYWISH AT ALL… YOUW HAIW? BWAND….BWAND AND BWACK… BOTH OF YOUW….
  • Grotesque Cute: Folly plays up the cutesy girly angle to a sickening degree.
  • Holding the Floor: Folly was intent on stalling Error and #54 until the Treyepod could catch up. And it worked.
  • Punny Name: Follicles.
  • Schmuck Bait: All Folly's entreaties to look into her eyes. Fortunately, the girls don't fall for it.
  • The Unfought: Folly Culls enters a "battle" against Error and #54. But though the Commentators offer a variety of battle advice... for some reason, the girls don't land a single blow on this monster. And vice versa. More or less an "Unfight," (if you will.)
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Doesn't it remind you of Sailor Moon? Well, you should know that those dark "odangos" are really Folly's eyes.

Can YOU make sense of this thing?!

Playtime-Chicka: PARENT ADVISE! ONLIE 3 AND UPS! A WONDERFUL TERROR MOUTH! CUT AND UP AND UP! OPTION MASK! COVER WITH DOCTOR MASK, NOT SO TERROR! WITH ACCESSORY KNIFE! KNIFE GO IN RED COME OUT! LOTS AND LOTS OF TERROR RED! REAL HAIR! DARKNESS! STRINGY AND MATT! BUT NOT MATT MATT! MATT HAIR NOT MATT!

A monster left in a box for Toto Realz, by someone who's definitely no fan of the doctor. Error and #54 find it instead.
