Came back from Season 8: The Midway Island. Despite losing an ear due to chasing too many girls, he still is as arrogant and savvy as ever. Pity his tribe hates him...
- Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: His attempt to get Jackie eliminated results in his tribe turning on him when Ventious informs them about his plan.
- Smug Snake
- Too Clever by Half
Came back from Season 7. The "kitteh" has chilled out considerably since the last time he was on the island, although there are still a couple of things that can rile him up...
- Sacrificial Lamb: Was made an early boot mainly because of him being a last-minute replacement for Wrecker and not fitting in with other characters' arcs.
- Shocking Elimination
- Too Dumb to Live: Falls for Bonnie's transparent lie about being Starr.
- We Hardly Knew Ye
Came back from Season 9. The most victimized of Bonnie's victims, she returns to get revenge and to make some real friends during her stay in the game.
- Go Out with a Smile: Doesn't mind being voted out early on because she managed to thoroughly humiliate her nemesis in the process.
- Lipstick Lesbian
Came back from Season 8: The Midway Island. Now an actual "fan character", he has decided to stick to his anti-social roots.
- Canon Immigrant: In-universe; Heinz moved to the Tekken universe in between seasons, so he is actually a fan character now.
- Loners Are Freaks
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: After he gets voted off, he warns the Retro tribe about Miranda.
Came back from Season 5: The Cursed Islands. She made it through her original season without a single vote cast against her, but gets on the wrong side of the wrong people this time around.
- HeelFace Revolving Door: Her arc consisted mainly of her wavering back and forth between staying loyal to her tribe and flipping on them.
- Sacrificial Lamb: Continues the tradition set in the first All-Stars season of returning characters from Season 5 being voted out early.
Came back from Season 7. The panda is back with a vengeance and a single-minded determination to get Chrii out by any means possible, which only succeeds in annoying everyone around her.
- Flat Character: Hating Chrii is pretty much her only personality trait.
- The Millstone
- Revenge Before Reason: Will stop at nothing to get Chrii out for her idoling of Ventious three seasons earlier, in spite of Ryuia and Ventious himself having long forgiven her for it and Chrii shooting down plans to get Ventious out twice.
- Too Dumb to Live: Her single-minded determination to eliminate Chrii ends up being the reason for her own elimination.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: She already wasn't nice in her original season, but this time around it's as though she is completely incapable of being pleasant towards anyone.
Came back from Season 9. He hasn't changed much from his original season, with plans of forming an alliance with all the strong men in spite of himself actually being weaker than many of the men in this season.
Came back from Season 7. The original Corsona turncoat has hopes of not being the outcast of her tribe this time, but a certain panda and her own knack for pissing off all the wrong people tend to put her at risk.
- Irony: Is most famous for using her idol to eliminate Ventious in her original season, but uses her idol to save him in this season.
- Later, Ventious would cast the deciding vote to eliminate her. Her "Appreciate it Vent" called back Ventious's "Thanks Chrii" from his own elimination at Season 7.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Her getting Frank eliminated by Bonnie gets her voted out less than ten minutes later by a vengeful Carbo tribe.
- The Smart Girl
Came back from Season 8: The Midway Island. She has more self-confidence and a relatively better relationship with Jackie (key word: relatively) this time, as well as a passion for avenging her allies with somewhat unorthodox tactics.
Came back from Season 8: The Midway Island. She remains a low-key player for most of the season, albeit one good at helping her allies come up with strategy or toss someone into a pile of shit.
- A Death in the Limelight
- Out of Focus: Remains largely in the background until Episode 8.
- Spicy Latina
Came back from Season 9. He figures that he can lay low for a while and begin really scheming only when the merge's near because he isn't as obvious a target as he was last season, but some people catch onto him.
- The Generic Guy: Compared to everyone else, he's startlingly normal.
- Nice Hat: He gives it to Jackie after he's voted out.
- Out of Focus: Doesn't really have much of a storyline this time around.
Came back from Season 7. Despite not having as much power as he did last season, he's quite happy to step out of the limelight.
- The Chains of Commanding: It's clear that he likes it much better when he's not being worshipped as a god and can actually hang out with others as a normal person.
- Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Subverted; part of his story this season is both learning that not everyone will stick to their word and having to make the hard decisions that he never had to make last season.
Came back from Season 3.
- Chronic Baxtabbing Disorder: Continues his baxtabbing ways from Season 3 by backstabbing Miranda, in spite of this causing his tribe to lose their numbers advantage over the other tribes.
- Control Freak: Just like in his last season, he needs to be in control at all times.
- Identical Stranger: Subverted. In spite of many fans noticing Baxter's similar appearance to Ventious and expecting some kind of mix-up to occur between them and Baxter himself hoping for the same, no one ever confuses them for one another. Mainly because, you know, they have entirely different wardrobes. Then played straight when Baxter dresses up in Ventious's clothes and successfully tricks Ryuia into splitting the vote.
- Baxter's family visitor also looks strikingly similar to him, even for a supposed brother. Most likely because Baxter is his Nobody.
- Manipulative Bastard
- Smug Snake
- Took a Level in Jerkass: Somehow, it was possible.
- The Soulless: Seeing that he's a Nobody and all.
- Villain Team-Up: Forms one with Minerva pre-merge with the reasoning that if they fought each other, they'd be slaughtered early on like the villains were in All-Stars.
Came back from Season 2: Brains Vs. Brawn.
Came back from Season 9.
- Big Brother Instinct: Towards Starr.
- Ironic Echo: To Bonnie in Episode 6. Too bad she survived the vote-off.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Is nowhere near the self-absorbed Casanova he was in his original season.
- Motive Decay: An unfortunate side effect of this.
Came back from Season 1.
- Flanderization: In his original season he was shown to be an honorable guy, but now he is completely obsessed with loyalty.
- Hotter and Sexier: Phil is no longer the morbidly obese man who tried to eat his own leg. He lost over 200 lbs.
- My Friends... and Zoidberg: Kris describes her tribe as "smart people and Phil". SWSU himself also leaves him off the "big characters" list.
- Sanity Slippage
- Token Good Teammate
- Undying Loyalty
Came back from Season 7.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: The "jealous" part is all but nonexistent this time around due to Chloe not being real competition, but the "clingy" part has been amped up to the point where Ventious is terrified of her.
- Cloud Cuckoolander
- Dumbass Has a Point / Wisdom from the Gutter: She proposes a... surprisingly insightful and detailed plan about how she, Ventious, Minerva and Jackie could make a "Double Date" alliance which could get them to the end by pulling in allies such as Chrii.
- Dumb Blonde
- Dumb Is Good: She's considerably nicer than in her original season, but also considerably spacier.
- Morality Pet: For Minerva.
- Odd Friendship: With Minerva.
- Took a Level in Kindness: In her original season she was part of the "Super Seven" alliance that gleefully played dirty against Manya, Chrii, Ker and Krauss, and she herself demonstrated an amount of mean-spiritedness. She appears to have mellowed out, and is not only on good terms with Chloe still (her rival for Ventious's affections) but also with Chrii who she treated quite cruelly in Season 7.
- Valley Girl
- Who Names Their Tribe #Survivor?: Yes, the # isn't a typo.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The #Survivor is literally all over the place on the show when it airs.
Came back from Season 9.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Forced to do so by Starr.
- Asshole Victim: The things that are done to her would be Moral Event Horizon for anyone else, but come on, it's Bonnie!
- Butt-Monkey: Her manipulation skills have not stopped her from being humiliated multiple times: having everyone mock her when she tries resuming her Bitch in Sheep's Clothing tactics, being forced by Starr to grovel at Kris's feet, eating sandwiches seasoned with spit and rat dung courtesy of Oehda, being thrown by Oehda and Emilee into a pile of literal shit...
- Card-Carrying Villain
- Cluster F-Bomb: When she learns that she's been put on a tribe composed entirely of people from her original season who hate her guts.
- Epic Fail: When she tries to revive her Bitch in Sheep's Clothing shtick.
- Evil Costume Switch: Granted, she was already evil in her original season, but the ditching of her pink dress for something more hardcore signals that she's not even going to try to act nice this season.
- Flat Character: Despite sticking around all season, there really isn't much to her outside of being a supreme Jerkass.
- Kick the Kitteh: Literally.
- Manipulative Bitch: Made it all the way to Final 3, in spite of her horrible reputation and her entire tribe loathing her, almost solely because of her strategical skills. And would surely have made Final 2 had anyone but Jackie won final immunity.
- Politically Incorrect Villain
- Villainous Breakdown: It's quite clear that she still hasn't recovered at all about her whole game being torn apart by Cherman last season.
- Xenafication: Having parted with her nice girl act, she has done away with the frilly pink dress and is much more outwardly physically dominant.
Came back from Season 4: Fans Vs. Canon and Season 6: All-Stars.
- Anti-Hero: Type III.
- Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Thoroughly averted; so far she's suffered from setting her tail on fire and being Covered in Gunge by a vengeful Chloe and Ryuia.
- Loophole Abuse: When she found the Yrsa'Ka idol, its instructions said that she had to give it to a Yrsa'Ka member... but nothing said that she had to give it to them while they were awake. Or leave the idol where they could actually see it.
- Mama Bear: For Ryuia at least.
- Mythology Gag: The outfit she wears at the finale was the same one she normally wore during Season 4.
- Odd Friendship: With Ryuia.
- Third Time's the Charm: She may not have won, but she finally made the finals and had a much better game here than in either of her previous seasons.
- Villain Team-Up: Forms one with Baxter pre-merge with the reasoning that if they fought each other, they'd be slaughtered early on like the villains were in All-Stars.
Came back from Season 8: The Midway Island.
- Anti-Hero: Type III.
- Berserk Button: This time, it's taking off his hat.
- Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: He's a believer of it.
- Idiot Hair
- Jerkass Has a Point
- My Greatest Second Chance
- Mythology Gag: His finale outfit was the same as the clothes he normally wore last season.
- Nice Hat: Both his original and Sanza's when he gave it to him after he got eliminated.
- Sole Survivor: The tenth, and is the second All-Stars winner.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Oehda.
- Worthy Opponent: He wanted to face one in the finals. That's why he chose Minerva over Bonnie after winning the final immunity challenge.
