  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: She always plays Good Cop to Nick's Bad, on the grounds that "I'm a terrible 'Bad Cop'!"

Nick Wilde

Fox, Judy's partner.


  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: He tends to get assigned as Bad Cop (because Judy's terrible at that role)... but also tends to play it as "(insert rhyme with Bad)" Cop instead, much to Judy and Chief Bogo's frustration.

     Gargoyles (1994-1997) 

Goliath

Leader of the Manhattan Clan, resident Anchor.


  • Collector of the Strange: He keeps a collection of Vinnie's pie-shooting bazookas.
  • Pie in the Face: It's Gargoyles canon that Goliath gets hit in the face with a banana cream pie (fired via bazooka). In the Loops, it's an unavoidable Running Gag that he gets shot in the face with it at least once a Loop. He finds it annoying, but ultimately harmless (especially compared to the Doctor getting shot by a Dalek and forcing a Regeneration), and is willing to let bygones be bygones... even when it happens multiple times in one Loop.

Hudson

Elder and advisor of the Clan; former leader before retiring in favor of Goliath.

Brooklyn

Second of the Manhattan Clan and one of the Trio.

Broadway

One of the Trio. Biological son of Hudson (though neither knows or cares in canon).

Lexington

Smallest of the Trio, a technical wizard.

Bronx

Gargoyle Beast, serves as a "pet" for the Clan.


  • Uplifted Animal: In canon, he is of dog-like intelligence and only speaks in barks and growls in canon. In Loop 11.8, it's revealed he's since Replaced Scooby-Doo in a Loop and is now an Intellectual Animal who can speak English.

Elisa Maza

The clan's human friend, a Manhattan police officer and romantic interest for Goliath.

David Xanatos

Billionaire responsible for breaking the Magus' spell over the Gargoyles. Determined, practical and brilliant, he spent much time as an antagonist to the Clan, but eventually became something of an ally.

Angela

Former second of the Avalon Clan, now part of the Manhattan Clan. Biological daughter of Goliath and Demona.

     Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series (1996-1997) 

Wraith

Resident Anchor, a Saurian warlock with a dry sense of humor and servant of the evil Lord Dragaunus, though the latter disdains Wraith's conviction in the dark magic of their ancestors.


  • The Dog Bites Back: Disposing of his boss during the Crisis was partially out of revenge, and also that he would almost certainly snap if forced to put up with Dragaunus being dismissive of him for eternity.
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: The justification he will give to others if pressed about killing Dragaunus during the Crisis, since it would be very likely for the overlord to try Ascending. The truth's a little more complicated, as noted above...
  • Fiery Stoic: Wraith was generally the calmest of the Saurians in Baseline, Looping pushes him further in this direction.
  • Magic Staff: Still has the one with the Duck skull on it, though he will switch it for others from his Pocket if he's planning on being around the living team of Ducks for long.

Phil Palmfeather

Manager for the Mighty Ducks hockey team.

Duke l'Orange

A former jewel thief and the team's center on the ice. Spent some time stealth-Looping before being exposed.


  • The Lancer: Ends up being this for Wraith almost as much as he does for Wildwing, usually by smoothing things over between the more morally upright or combative Ducks and the Anchor.
  • Magic Knight: Picked up Red Mage weapons and skills from Eorzea.

Mallory McMallard

A former member of the Puckworld Special Forces and the team's right wing on the ice.

Tanya Vanderflock

A technical genius and the team's left defense on the ice.

Candace Flynn

Isabella Garcia-Shapiro

Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz

Baljeet Tjinder

Buford van Stomm

Major Francis Monogram

Carl Karl

Linda Flynn-Fletcher

     Gravity Falls (2012-2016) 

Dipper Pines

Anchor for the Gravity Falls Loops. Part-time demon, part-time human, all time mystery-solver and investigator of the strange.


  • Crazy-Prepared: He keeps a copy of a computer virus known as the "Alcor Virus" in his Pocket, which combines magic with computer coding to produce a nigh-unstoppable virus.
  • Oh, Crap!: He has a moment of this when he winds up in a Reverse Falls Loop and Mabel's not Awake (meaning that her unAwake self is a total Psychopathic Womanchild).
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's apparently Looped into the Transcendence AU many times in the past, and kept his powers from it, basically giving him a demonic Super Mode as Alcor - while all of the other Gravity Falls Loopers also have the same abilities, he's got them to a much greater extent and is far more skilled. In most Gravity Falls Loops, Dipper's barely entered puberty.

Mabel Pines

Dipper's twin sister, and the first Looper from his universe besides him.

Stanley "Stan" Pines

Stanford "Ford" Pines

Wendy Corduroy


Jesus "Soos" Ramirez

  • Break the Cutie: In her very first loop, she ends up getting possessed by Bill and dying.

Fiddleford McGucket

Robbie Valentino

Gideon Gleeful

Bill Cipher

One of the most powerful non-Looping entities known in Yggdrasil, Bill Cipher is Loop Aware due to a Soul Bond/magical spell he invented known as the TriNet, which also allows him to recall his actions from previous Loops by reading info from the minds of Loopers the spell spreads to, making him a pseudo-Looper.


  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You: The only reason the Admins haven't removed the Tri-Net spell is because it's stabilizing Yggdrasil, and the Loopers can use it for their own benefits to send mental "e-mail" even if they're not in the same Loop (Tri-Net spreads to Looper minds, and Bill is the "server/heart" of the spell the info passes through). It's also made clear to Bill and everyone else, however, that if he doesn't play along, Tri-Net will be removed for good.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Even in canon, he was this. It's the only reason he can handle the massive influx of data from the Tri-Net.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Occurring very slowly, but occurring.

     Pirates of the Caribbean ( 2003 film series) 

Captain Jack Sparrow

Anchor for the Pirates of the Caribbean Loop. Notorious pirate, and scoundrel, suffering from permanent rum deficit.


  • Achievements in Ignorance: He manages to dodge Saitama's punches by complete accident. In general, Jack's likely doing this... probably.
  • Animorphism: In a Loop where he replaced Sirius Black, he was an animagus that could become a pink elephant.
  • Badass Normal: Managed to take on Nightmare Moon in an Equestria Loop, and walked away from it.
  • Confusion Fu: How he survived Nightmare Moon, by being Jack.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Thanks to a One Piece Loop, he acquired a Devil Fruit that didn't exist in canon - the Sake Sake no Mi, or Rum-Rum Fruit, a Logia that allows him to create, control and transform into an alcoholic beverage. He mainly uses it for drinking rather than fighting.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Pirate. Managed to steal everything Prince Blueblood had in an Equestria Loop, helped by no small amount of charm, lies, misdirection and rum.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Unwittingly did this to himself when he drank to the point where he forgot about getting the Speech about the Loops from his Admin. Poseidon then pulled a few strings and arranged for him to loop into Equestria and get it a second time.
  • No Sense of Direction: Ponyville isn't anywhere near the ocean. Jack just wandered into Nightmare Moon by mistake.
