     White Hat Hacker 
The Player Character.

The Dandy Alliance

A happy-go-lucky and somewhat awkward member of the guild named The Dandy Alliance.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Is more outgoing than his Reboot counterpart but less so than the original version.
  • Non-Elemental: He's part of the neutral class, which doesn't focus on any power set in particular.

The leader of the Dandy Alliance and a major figure in the White Hat Hacker's adventure.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: The previous version of the character drew some criticism for being the token "girl" of the gang, although she still was much more independent and brave than her original counterpart. As the series went on, the webseries version of Flamegirl's character was fleshed out more, but this version has much more personality from the beginning (as the leader of her own guild). According to Chris Niosi, the RPG Flamegirl is his favorite depiction of the character in any continuity thus far.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Justified, as it's a video game. In-Universe, she's aligned with the infernal element, which includes fire and darkness, but is a hero fighting a group of sinister hackers.
  • Playing with Fire

A brash imp who is best friends with Alpha. Often butts heads with Flamegirl.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Wields electricity instead of wind like previous versions.
  • Badass Cape: This Kirbopher wears a large patchwork cape unlike his TOME counterpart.
  • Shock and Awe: Unlike his previous counterparts, he's associated with technology and electric powers here.

A mysterious member of the Dandy Alliance who aids for her own personal reasons. Doesn't talk very much.
  • Adaptation Name Change: From "Gamecrazed" to "Gamesoft".
  • Gender Flip: From her original counterpart and her reboot counterpart; in different ways. Her original counterpart was a straight-up male, while her reboot counterpart is a genderless AI that identifies as female (but disguises herself as a male for most of the show). This version is introduced as female from the beginning.
  • Casting a Shadow

An outspoken and over-the-top dragon warrior who aids the Dandy Alliance. Loves role-playing.

Cast o'Dreams

A guild competing in the same contest as the Dandy Alliance. Flamegirl had been a member before founding the Dandy Alliance.



  • Gender Flip: Of the male Sniperwheel.
  • Transforming Mecha: Snyperyder can become a motorcycle for her attacks and for others to ride on for Team Attacks.

The Troublemakers

A group of hackers that want to cause trouble for contestants in the campaign of champions. It’s unclear if they work for a Big Bad like they do in previous incarnations.


  • Adaptation Distillation: The previous version of the character was an alter-ego that Doubling adopted to apologize to Rockoon, whereas the version before that was a separate character entirely. Skeight in this incarnation is simply the character that Doubling uses from the start.
  • Composite Character: Apparently, he's the Skeight account operated by Doubling's player.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Is not affiliated with the hackers in any other version.
  • Anti-Villain: Having said that, his personality is more or less the same, so he’s not really a true bad guy here either.

The Netkings

The administrators for each of TOME’s five regions, and presumably the creators of the game as well.

     Chief Bitopio 
     Empress Kindarspirit 
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Implied. She's the head of the Orange Island area, which is the region dedicated to the Infernal element. We don't know to what extent yet, though.
  • Irony: She's an Angel, but the Infernal element generally makes up fire and darkness.

     Queen Rulerruby 
  • Adaptational Heroism: Doesn’t seem to be a villain the way Rubirules was.
  • Adaptation Name Change: From Rubirules.
  • Gem Tissue: Her body is made up of crystal. Interestingly enough, the segmented orbs that her arms are made up of are ripped from her TTA counterpart rather than Rubirules's appearance in TOME, though the rest of her design is essentially just a female, bulkier Rubirules.
  • Gender Flip
  • Mineral MacGuffin: The Morganite Valley section of the game revolves around Rulerruby having the Dandy Alliance collect these.
  • Proud Beauty: Rubirules's narcissism and ego have been adapted into vanity for Rulerruby. Thankfully, it appears to be a little less extreme this time around.
  • Vanity Is Feminine

     President Execk 

Tales of the Terrain

A guild that Nylocke was once part of, wherein the members role play fantasy-style villains.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Apparently, this version of Serpentine only role-plays a villain and does not have any true villainous characteristics like his previous two counterparts.
  • Adaptational Heroism: A bizarre example; in the previous incarnations of TOME Demonking was an Anti-Villain who only reluctantly worked with the hackers. Here, he’s not a hacker at all, and is merely part of a guild role-playing a Villain (though the persona he adopts is more villainous than his other incarnations are).
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Is more confident and outgoing here due to being a role-player pretending to be a villain rather than being a reluctant, but legitimate, antagonist.

How well does it match the trope?
