Characters / Survivor Fan Characters Season Seventeen

Go To


First My Hero Academia fan character.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While she tries to play up her cutesy, innocent, sweet schoolgirl persona, she's actually quite bitchy. She has no problem joining in on the random hatred Amadeus and Tony have of Josh, but also explodes at tribal council when she gets voted out.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Mind Control: Her quirk, "Aroma", lets her control her scent in a way that lets her manipulate the thoughts of people around her.
  • Advertisement:
  • Too Powerful to Live: Her ability to manipulate emotions and thoughts would have been extremely overpowered, so naturally she gets the boot first.


First Town of Salem fan character.

  • Berserk Button: She was NOT happy when she realized that Lester was using her.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After Lester gets her voted out, she contacts Ghost Bro and tells him everything, leading to Lester's downfall.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Having Lester as her primary ally, especially after helping him find an idol, sealed her fate almost immediately.
  • Posthumous Character: Well, sort of. She appears in later episodes by communicating with Ghost Bro.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Thrown under the bus by Lester not one day after helping him find an idol.


First Pikmin fan character.

  • Asshole Victim: Amadeus was a total jerk, but the way he went out was incredibly harsh.
  • Advertisement:
  • Fancy Camping: He hangs out in the EX-Machina rather than actually camping, so he gets all the lavish benefits while his tribemates are actually roughing it.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: His entire tribe hates him thanks to his massive ego and annoying behavior.
  • Humongous Mecha: The EX-Machina.
  • Jerkass: He's rude, thinks he's better than everyone else, and isn't shy about stating it.
  • Meaningful Name: He pulls out an idol at the first tribal council to avoid elimination and send Charity out. In other words, he used a Deus ex Machina.
  • The Napoleon: He's the smallest player in the season's cast (and quite likely in all of SFC), but he's got one of the biggest egos.
  • Non-Gameplay Elimination: Medically evacuated after the EX-Machina is destroyed and he loses his life support system with it.
  • Punny Name: He’s the captain of the EX-Machina. Combined with his name, it reads “I’m a Deus ex Machina”. And boy, is he.
  • Advertisement:
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He was only around for three episodes, but he wound up impacting a lot of things that took place after his elimination, both large and small.
  • Villain's Dying Grace: Somewhat. Even if it was simply to show off and make himself look better for his new tribe, he gives the final challenge that causes his medical evacuation everything he's got, to the point of fighting off Parmesan's attacks AND capturing the final Poke Stop at the last second despite his EX-Machina malfunctioning and on the verge of exploding. Even the final scene of the comic ends on a somber note with Amadeus' destroyed EX-Machina lying in ruin on its own.

Joy Stiq

First Hyperdimension Neptunia fan character.


First Call of Duty fan character.

  • Accidental Misnaming: Tends to mess up other players' names, especially Jenny's.
  • Blatant Lies: In his pre-season reveal, Jeff described Quickscope as a badass and a serious competitor. As the rest of this entry will tell you, he's really not... Unless Jeff was describing Quickscope's avatar rather than Quickscope himself.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: His whole tribe hates him as soon as he starts talking. Although it's kind of hard to blame them.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: He tried to target Mele solely because she was a girl. As one would probably expect, his tribe completely ignored his plans. In fact, they were so sick of him at that point that they voted him out instead.
  • Joke Character: He isn't particularly talented in any field, and he's borderline impossible to work with because of how impulsive and bratty he is.
  • Manchild: Considering he’s an adult character controlled by a young boy. Not to mention his gamer name being Xx_Quickscope69_xX, showing just as much maturity and creativity as one would expect from someone his age.
  • Online Alias: While he still goes by "Quickscope" to other players and in confessionals, the Mystery Gift for the Bulu Tribe turns out to be a switch to turn Quickscope's mic on. It then reveals that he is essentially an avatar being controlled by a 8 1/2-year-old boy, and his online gamer name of Xx_Quickscope69_xX is revealed.
  • No Indoor Voice: He's constantly screaming at maximum volume.
  • Sore Loser: He throws a tantrum after he gets voted out.


Second Ranma ½ fan character.

  • Insufferable Genius: She considers herself the smartest person on her tribe, and will let everyone in the vicinity know it.
  • Meaningful Name: Nezumi means rat or mouse. Guess what Cursed Spring she fell into?
  • Poor Communication Kills: Her lack of socialization made the other Kokos suspect she had an idol. As it turns out, she didn't, and that was the reason for her elimination.
  • Smug Snake: She's very cocky and sure of herself.


First Pokémon Mystery Dungeon fan character.

  • Big Bad Wannabe: He clearly considers himself the biggest threat in the game. However, he doesn't even reach the merge.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's quite prone to being embarrassed, and let's be honest, he deserves it.
  • Jerkass: Generally takes every opportunity he can to act like an asshole.
  • Lack of Empathy: When Kade falls ill, he not only refuses to do anything to help, but gloats about having one less opponent. He's equally callous after Amadeus' injury following the explosion of the EX-Machina.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His betrayal of Naomi ultimately causes his elimination, as she uses her medium powers to sell him out to Ghost Bro.
  • Smug Snake: He thinks he's untouchable in the game.
  • Sore Loser: He makes some not-so-veiled threats towards his former tribemates after his elimination.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He all but abandoned his only ally Naomi before his first Tribal Council, attempting to keep everyone silent about his idol.


First Family Guy fan character.

  • Ascended Fanboy: Of both SFC and the original Survivor.
  • The Bully: To Josh.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: He never considered the possibility of Kade turning on him.
  • Irrational Hatred: Again, to Josh, which is the indirect cause of his elimination.
  • Jerkass: He isn't a particularly pleasant guy, being a bully to Josh and acting gleeful over his and Kade's plan to use Jeannie's wishes against everyone else despite the drain it puts on her.
  • Lack of Empathy: He honestly couldn't care less that being separated from her ring was hurting Jeannie. He just wanted to use her wishes to screw over the others.
  • Mistaken for Gay: By Raiza.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: He kills all of Amadeus' Pikmin so that he can't use them to hunt for idols.
  • Smug Snake: Incredibly cocky which, like the two players who left before him, is what caused his downfall.


First Crazy Ex-Girlfriend fan character.

  • Berserk Button: She has a major outburst when Raiza uses the EX-Machina to steamroll the first individual immunity challenge.
    • But by far her biggest fit of rage came when she got eliminated via purple rock.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: After she pulled the purple rock.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her temper.
  • Hypocrite: Opposes Raiza over using the Ex-Machina to win immunity, even though she was okay with it helping her team win. More clear example is when she pressures her alliance to not flip, only to immediately turn on her best friend CutieCat when she learned the latter is the target.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: Not an over-the-top example, but she does let her language get pretty colorful. After she gets eliminated though, hoo boy...
  • Laser-Guided Karma: When it comes to rocks, she tries to rally everyone to unanimously vote off her best friend CutieCat. No one budges, and she draws the purple rock.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Invoked. She's well aware that her temper causes her social and emotional problems, so she prefers to let it out all in one burst, preferably away from people.

Derrick The Hedgehog aka Slash

Tenth Sonic the Hedgehog fan character. Actually a returning player from Season 2: Brains vs. Brawn.

  • Acrofatic: He's big, but he's quick.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Played with. His nickname, Slash, is actually pretty cool. It just hasn't aged well with him.
  • Formerly Fit: He was more trim in his younger days.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Returns after going home second in one of the most convoluted Tribal Councils in the series. Ironic in that his return wasn’t part of a twist. The casting directors simply didn’t recognize him.
  • Name's the Same: Shares first names with Derek L., though it’s spelled differently. Although he’s better known by the nickname “Slash”.
  • Older and Wiser: Maturity and fatherhood have made him a much different person than the cocky fool he was in Season 2.
  • Papa Wolf: Best shown when he demands Jeannie's ring back from Kade.
  • Team Dad: Jeannie even refers to him as this.
  • Walking Spoiler: It’s going to be very hard to talk about him without mentioning his secret.
  • You Don't Look Like You: Slash definitely looks a lot different from how he used to, having packed on a few pounds and years. The Art Evolution helps too.

Allison Kathrati (aka CutieCat)

First YouTube Simulator fan character.


First Littlest Pet Shop (2012) fan character.

  • Action Girl: She's quite the daredevil. Fitting, considering she's a stuntwoman.
  • The Ditz: She doesn't make a lot of smart choices.
  • Easter Egg: Makes some Once an Episode cameos in Season 20, despite not being a proper player there.
  • Feel No Pain: Due to a medical condition (CIP - Congenital Insensitivity To Pain), she is completely incapable of feeling pain.
  • Heroic BSoD: After the EX-Machina breaks for the second time, she has a breakdown and spends multiple in-comic days moping.
  • Hot-Blooded: She's a ball of energy that's perpetually bouncing around in the most reckless manner possible.
  • Irony: Her place on the leader tribe, since it is the only tribe of the season whose theme she doesn't match in any way.
  • Made of Iron: She survived being nearly devoured by Ollie, crashing into a stone wall, and being burnt by a Charizard multiple times in one challenge. She doesn't actually feel any pain either.
  • Oblivious to Love: Has no idea Josh has a crush on her. When Tony tries hitting on her in front of Josh, she assumes he's got a crush on Josh.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: She's usually off doing something ridiculous while other people are busy talking strategy.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: She finds dangerous and painful things incredibly exciting.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After commandeering the EX-Machina, she becomes a serious force in challenges.

Derek Linz

First Weeds fan character.

Came back in Season 20: Generations.

  • Arch-Enemy: He hates Jenny for breaking up the Beasts tribe early on.
  • Jerk Jock: He's consistently awful to Jenny, and he got far worse after the merge. That said, the two of them got better around the time of the second merge when the secret alliance was formed.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: When he's not fighting with Jenny, he's a fairly pleasant guy.
  • Name's the Same: Shares first names with Derrick H., though it’s spelled differently.
  • Pet the Dog: He teams up with Derrick to get Jeannie's ring back from Kade.

Kade Spicer

First Ace Attorney: Investigations fan character.

  • Amoral Attorney: He certainly acts like one outside the courtroom, what with everything he’s done to Jeannie.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: An inconsistent ally who you definitely shouldn't place your trust in.
  • Humiliation Conga: His last episode is basically ten pages of bad karma.
  • Hypocrite: He says that he wants to make the game challenging for himself, but he repeatedly relies on Jeannie's ring in order to give himself an advantage.
  • Jerkass: He's very selfish and outright refers to Jeannie as a tool. However, he says he’s only acting this way to give himself a bigger challenge.
  • Knife Nut: On the jury, he throws a knife every time he makes an objection.
  • Lack of Empathy: Best demonstrated during the Day 12 Immunity Challenge, where he agrees to give back Jeannie’s magic ring... after she’s eliminated or evacuated.
  • The Leader: Assumes this position during Lele's first Tribal Council. Then he got transferred to the former Leaders’ tribe the very next day.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He's willing to play as underhanded as possible to get himself ahead.
  • Ninja: Specifically, a ninja prosecutor.
  • Self-Imposed Challenge: He believes in playing on the hardest difficulty possible. He says this moments before blindsiding his only close ally.
  • Scarf of Asskicking
  • The Sociopath: Described as such by Derrick and Mele, and indeed he fits the bill perfectly:
Kade: [to Jeannie] You're a tool. Tools are made to be used.
  • Straight Man: To Jeannie and, later, Mele.
  • Working Through the Cold: Collapsed at camp on the day of the first Immunity Challenge, and was apparently stuck in the hospital mere days prior to the competition.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Once he realizes he's been backed into a corner, he threatens to destroy Jeannie's ring and her along with it if she doesn't give him immunity.


Third My Little Pony fan character. He's playing with his "brother", who's possessing a doll. Since the two of them are dependent on each other (Parmesan can't talk, Ghost Bro can't move on his own), they are essentially two people acting as a single player.

Came back for Season 20: Generations.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Alfredo has a thing for Naomi. She's really, really not interested.
  • Berserk Button: Alfredo hates talk of suicide - since he longs to be alive himself, he hates seeing life devalued.
  • Companion Cube: Koko's Mystery Gift is a little doll that he immediately takes over. He names it Alfredo. It's actually a medium for his brother to communicate with the world.
  • Cute Mute: Parmesan.
  • The Dividual: They're two people acting as a single player in-game.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Parmesan and Alfredo.
  • Equippable Ally: A non-weapon variant. His doll acts a a medium for Ghost Bro to communicate for both of them.
  • Happily Adopted: Parmesan's parents found his abandoned egg and raised him as their own.
  • Sibling Team: Parmesan interacts with the physical world while Alfredo handles communication for him.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Alfredo is cunning and sneaky, while Parmesean is sweet and cheerful.
  • Ventriloquism: Sometimes does this with his doll Alfredo. Except he can't actually talk. Alfredo, aka "Ghost Bro" is using the doll to communicate for both of them.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Being a changeling, he has shapeshifting powers, first shown when he transforms into Derek L. in the first challenge.


First Shantae fan character.

  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Her mom is very outspoken and smothering.
  • The Gadfly: Enjoyed trolling Lester after getting her magic ring.
  • Genre Blind: She knew absolutely nothing about Survivor upon entering the game. Her "research" was her listening to Survivor the musical group, not the TV show.
  • Ill Girl: After being away from her ring for too long.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Gives one to Alfredo after he saves them from the purple rock.
  • Nice Girl: One of the season's nicest.
  • Power Limiter: Her ring, which weakens her power if she's away from it for too long.
  • Punny Name: Jeannie is a djinn, which are quite similar to genies.
  • That Reminds Me of a Song: Prone to bursting into song at random moments. Her doing research on the wrong Survivor before the game may have something to do with it.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Less unwitting and more unwilling, but she is forced into Kade's plans by virtue of him stealing her ring.

Mele Nenbara

Second Danganronpa fan character.

  • Genki Girl: Positively overflowing with energy.
  • Large Ham: Easily the most theatrical member of her tribe.
  • Little Miss Snarker
  • Out-of-Character Moment: She drops her smile and gets angry when Kade and Tony refuse to hand over the increasingly ill Jeannie's ring.
  • Perpetual Smiler: She's almost always smiling, even when delivering not-so-swell news.
  • Stepford Smiler: She's used to putting on a happy face for her audiences, to the point that it's hard for her to stop.
  • Sugary Malice: After a certain point in the game, basically all of her interactions with tribemates involve passive-aggressively insulting them with a huge smile on her face.
  • Third-Person Person
  • Token Good Teammate: When she was aligned with Kade and Tony.

Jenny Wily

Fourth Mega Man fan character.

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Like father, like daughter. Only she does it to get the abandoned EX-Machina.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Feels like this early on, being the only intellectually-inclined member of the very brawny Beasts tribe.
  • Arch-Enemy: Derek's constantly going after her, so she responds in kind. She keeps up this charade during the second merge to keep her allies from thinking they’re actually working together.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her fear of being seen as a villain like her father causes her to stubbornly deny at the Final Tribal Council that she willingly did anything remotely dishonest or manipulative, alienating many jurors who would have happily voted for her if she had just been honest about her game.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Well, she is a Wily. She uses her skills to fix up the destroyed EX-Machina and give Ollie sentience.
  • I Am Not My Father: The idea of becoming as ruthless as her father greatly disturbs her.
  • In the Blood: Just like her father, she's a mechanical genius. But unlike him, she's not evil.
  • The Mole: To the secret Bulu alliance.
  • The Smart Girl: For the Beasts tribe.

Josh Thunderbolt

Fifth Pokémon fan character.

  • Butt-Monkey: Between being left on the outs, bullied, and just having weird things happen around him, Josh isn't having an easy time.
  • Cassandra Truth: At the first merge Tribal Council, he tries to convince Tony to play the idol on himself so Kade, who planned on betraying him, would be eliminated. Tony, of course, didn’t listen.
  • Despair Event Horizon: After Raiza is voted off, he loses all self-confidence and spends the rest of his days on Alola wallowing in depression and self-hatred.
  • Honor Before Reason:
    • When given the chance to team up with Lester against Raiza to win an Immunity Challenge, he refuses because he won't "make deals with scumbags". This ends up costing his tribe the immunity, even though Tony got zero points on his own run in the final battle which was actually the true dagger in losing the challenge.
    • He also tries to save Tony from elimination despite the latter being a complete asshole, especially to him.
  • Nice Guy: He pretty much proves this time and time again with his loyalty, honesty, behavior toward Raiza, and pretty much just always putting others before himself. However, this part of him is overtaken by his insecurities and self-loathing later on in the game when he loses Raiza and starts believing that everyone else views him as worthless.
  • Official Couple: With Raiza.
  • Only Sane Man: Of the leaders.
  • Secretly Wealthy: He reveals in a conversation with Parmesean that he's actually incredibly rich, and says that calling him a millionaire would probably be lowballing it.
  • Shock and Awe: He knows Thunderbolt.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: While he's well-meaning and friendly, his twin brother DJ is a bratty, insufferable Jerkass.
  • Signature Move: Thunderbolt.
  • The Un-Favourite: Throughout the season, Josh is never particularly popular among any of the various tribes and groups in-game, and most other castaways don't think very highly of him.


First Five Nights at Freddy's fan character.

  • Animals Hate Him: Any time a challenge involves cooperating with Pokémon, he is completely stuck.
  • Atomic F-Bomb: He sometimes reacts to setbacks by loudly swearing.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: His list of "Ottery hobbies" includes "seashells, burgers, gruesome homicide, the ocean and other things."
  • Brutal Honesty: Ollie has no sense of subtlety and will tell someone to their face when he wants to vote them out.
  • Death Is Cheap: That's what Ollie is programmed to believe.
  • The Dreaded: His entire tribe is terrified of him and would be glad to be rid of him as soon as possible.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: After his reprogramming, Ollie is constantly developing new facets to his playstyle and personality beyond brutal murder. To the point where he turns on Jenny in an attempt to take the game for himself.
  • The Load: Both literally and figuratively, as his tribe has to physically carry him through challenges. Averted once Jenny upgrades him and he starts being useful.
  • Not So Different: He is just as brash, obnoxious, and homicidal as you would expect from an animatronic, even though he isn't one.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: After he becomes active.
  • Robo Speak: He announces whenever he is loading a response.
  • Sole Survivor: The 17th.
  • Super Drowning Skills: Even after he becomes more active, he still can't swim.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Ollie started the game worse than useless, never moving unless it was nighttime, at which point he would attempt to kill his tribemates. Once Jenny tinkered with his AI, not only does he help in challenges, but now he won't kill anyone.
  • Totally Radical: His manner of speaking.

How well does it match the trope?
