Characters / The Frollo Show The Main Four

Go To

Main page is here.

Tropes applying to the main characters:

  • Anti Heroes/Anti Villains: They're not the most sympathetic bunch.
  • Bi the Way: All four of them are depicted as being bisexual. Frollo masturbates to a fireman calendar in the first episode, and in the underworld, he asks Gaston for gay porn... which Gaston just happened to have in his pocket. Gaston was disgusted seeing Clopin and Quasimodo pole dancing in a male strip club... but there's still the question of why he was in there in the first place. Frollo is also obsessed with Panty, and fought Gaston over her. Panty is shown to have had sex with 1001 different people from both genders... including her sister Stocking, who herself is a Yandere obsessed with Frollo.

  • Byronic Heroes: Though Played for Laughs, they definitely qualify.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Two characters wear purple and are swordfighters, and two characters wear red and are long-range fighters.
  • Deadpan Snarkers: Depending on their moods.
  • Embodiment of Vice: Each character holds a particular sin or vice, including:
    • Gaston: Pride
    • Frollo, Panty: Lust
    • Stocking: Gluttony
  • Evil Laugh: Frollo and Gaston still use theirs regularly. Unlike most examples though, they use them to laugh at benignly humorous things.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble:
    • Frollo - Phlegmatic
    • Gaston - Sanguine
    • Panty - Chloric
    • Stocking - Melancholic
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopaths: They flip-flop on whether they're on the heroic side or the sociopathic side, but they have a twisted sense of morality either way.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Compared to their portrayals in their source material, they do more heroic actions. Of course, they're still Anti Heroes at worst.

    Claude Frollo 

Judge Claude Frollo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/frollonew.jpg
Voiced by: Tony Jay

"We must hold them off at all costs!"

The titular character of the series and one of the main characters. Frollo retains his lustful personality from the original movie, but he has developed a sense of humor and heroism here. He and Gaston sometimes get into trouble from the antics played around others.


  • Adaptational Badass: Frollo was pretty badass in the movie, yes, but here he has access to a wide range of powers.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Commits far fewer atrocities, made a huge ensemble of friends, and most of his "villainy" is mere Poke the Poodle at best. He still admits that he kills Gypsies, but so far, it's been an Informed Flaw.
  • Anti-Hero: Saves Paris from zombies, but later robs a store.
  • BFS: In his ultimate Saiyan form.
  • Bash Brothers: With Gaston.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Deconstructed in episode 20. He gets a vision of Gaston, Panty, and Stocking cheering him on in episode 18, but as revealed in this episode, Ronald tricked him into thinking he will save his friends from a Wilford bird, when instead, he ended up killing Yomika, sending Madotsuki down the Despair Event Horizon further.
  • Big "NO!": Lets one out when Jafar shoots a slow-moving projectile at him.
  • Bros Before Hoes: During the "Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents" arc, Frollo and Gaston are fighting over Panty until Bleemo sings a song about their past friendship. This makes them see the error of their ways and they reconcile with a fist-bump.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Has a bad habit of taunting opponents more powerful than himself about how he is going to curbstomp them, only to be easily owned himself.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He struggles to confess his lust to Panty in episode 15.
    Frollo's mind: Say something, you idiot!
    Frollo: I don't know what to say!
    Frollo's mind: Say something at once!
    Frollo: You know I am not capable of talking with party girls!
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Get out, you idiot!", and many variations.
    • "But how?!"
    • "Very well..."
    • "Hell yes!" From "Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita", he prefers the variation "Why yes!"
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Quite unlike his canon portrayal. He's still very much a Dirty Old Man, but even suggesting that he take advantage of Panty against her will is absolutely assured to send him into a violent rage.
  • Combination Attack: Another specialty of his. He has several of them, mostly with Gaston and Bleemo. Also charges up a blazing inferno with Hades.
  • Cool Old Guy: Age doesn't keep him from pulling all kinds of crazy stunts.
  • Cool Shades: Wears a pair when fighting off the zombies, complete with quoting some of Duke Nukem's lines.
  • Cross Over Ship: Tries to start one of these between himself and Panty.
  • Depraved Bisexual
  • Dirty Old Man: Even more so than the Disney version.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: Well...sort of. Frollo daydreams that on his birthday, Gaston will say, "This is the day your dreams come true, Frollo," followed by Panty coming out of a giant birthday cake and saying, "Time to put the happy in happy birthday!" This fantasy comes true in the next episode... until it turns out THAT was also a dream.
  • Driven to Suicide: Dies so that he doesn't have to do the show without Gaston. Though with how often Frollo comes back to life, it may have just been the quickest way for him to retrieve Gaston.
  • Emotional Powers: His fire-based powers grow stronger when he's emotionally affected, particularly when Panty is somehow involved. When she's in danger of being raped and he's at his emotional low point, he is even able to temporarily force himself into Super Saiyan 5 form in an instant, skipping the long chargeup time.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In a case where the character is already introduced, but the moment is to show the change that the character had. Frollo killing the Irate Gamer, then ordering the vampires like a Big Bad would to his minions right after saving a brutally beaten Panty shows that he's not fucking around, at least not anymore.
  • Evil Laugh: He's not as evil here compared to the film, but he's got a fair amount of magnificent ones.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: They started off as enemies, but later on he became friends with Guile and M. Bison.
  • Forgot About His Powers: Frollo launches himself out of a cannon to reach the terrorist airship, completely forgetting about his ability to fly.
  • Funny Afro/'70s Hair: Had one in college.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: After mercy killing Lemongrab, his allies try to snap him out of his madness, but it's fruitless.
    Stocking: We lost him. Admit it.
  • "Get out, you idiot!"
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Frollo gets very excited when Panty drunkenly makes out with Haruhi at his birthday party.
  • Groin Attack: Gets one from Gaston after he realizes what "Hellfire" is really about.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the third episode, but Death Is Cheap. This earned him the title of the 'nuclear hero'.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Just like in the animated movie
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Gaston.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Deconstructed. In episode 17, he's forced to mercy kill Lemongrab after the latter gets his legs caught beneath some boulders, knowing that he'll never survive in the harsh environment of the Wilfmension. While in that episode the others seemingly abandon him for this behavior, episode 20 reveals that they never actually abandoned him over the act, with Stocking saying killing Lemongrab was the right thing to do, but Frollo is so broken over it that all his friends' attempt to get his attention prove nil, forcing them to journey along without his and Gaston's (who doesn't believe Frollo's Not Himself) help.
  • Inter Generational Friendship: Frollo's much older than Gaston.
  • Knight Templar: Becomes this as of "Frollo Gets Flashed", which menacingly matches up with his canon portrayal. His attitude ends up alienating his allies in "Frollo Finally Does It"...or so it seems to be.
  • Large Ham: Very large.
    "Heheheh... ha ha... the code is broken!"
  • Last-Name Basis: Almost no one calls him Claude.
  • Leit Motif: Expect variations of his legendary Villain Song Hellfire to play when he's about to do something particularly awesome.
    • Theme Music Power-Up: Also an epic Triumphant Reprise: When Frollo finally overcomes his selfishness in the Frollo Story of the season finale, this plays. Whereas the original Hellfire was all ominous and ironic, this version is much more upbeat and straightforward and could easily be interpreted as Frollo having genuinely become a righteous man now and drawing strength from his desire to save Panty. Although the lyrics are exactly the same, muddling the effect somewhat.
  • Love Triangle: Is in this with Stocking and Panty. Stocking is in love with him, but he loves (or lusts for) her sister instead.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: He can call for Gaston's help through Gaston's brodar, even behind his soundproof restroom.
  • Manchild
  • Megaton Punch: Frollo and all his cousins can perform a Scarf Punch.
  • Mercy Kill: Does this to Lemongrab in "Frollo Finally Does It".
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: He's seemingly double Gaston's age and conspicuously scrawnier than him, yet they prove evenly matched in their various fistfights in "Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents".
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When he finds out too late that he was tricked by Ronald into saving his "friends" and accidentally murdered Yomika in the process, he curses himself on it.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Congratulations, Frollo, you saved your "friends" from the Wilford bird! Though you also ended up killing Yomika in the process. Now you'll have to explain to Madotsuki about your mistake.
  • Odd Friendship: It's hard to explain how or why he's friends with most of the supporting cast. This is even lampshaded in "Frollo Fucks the Gods".
    Kneesocks: Back there [in time], he won't be able to contact his random friends.
  • Playing with Fire: His element of attack.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Frollo retains his hatred of Gypsies and when asked on a game show what he does for a living, responds that he kills them.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Frollo delivers one to Ronald McDonald after the latter calls him out for trying to side with his friends that betrayed him.
  • Slasher Smile: Frequently, in the first episode.
  • Super Mode: He can transform into a Super Saiyan.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: Frollo is an odd character who can defeat some of the most powerful beings in the world, but is often beaten effortlessly by most enemies. There is something of a pattern to it, though. Regular Frollo on his own seems to be among the weakest fighters in the series. He does significantly better when he has a tactical advantage or is teamed up with an ally, though (the Giga Drill Breaker being a prominent example). Saiyan Frollo appears to be more powerful, but we rarely see him in action. Meanwhile, Super Saiyan 5 Frollo seems to be able to beat anything except God!Wilford.
  • Teleport Spam: One of Frollo's abilities.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: to Scanty and Kneesocks after his Theme Music Power-Up.
    "Bring it, bitches."
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Towards the beginning, he would die at least Once an Episode.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He really likes Sol beer.
  • Transformation Is a Free Action: He forgets that it isn't when Genie Jafar flicks him away when he's going into unknown Saiyan phase.
    • Averted when he instantly transforms into the said form in "Frollo Gets Flashed by a Gothic Lolita".
    • And again in his perspective of "Frollo Finally Does It".
  • Troll: Often plays childish pranks on others for the lulz.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Frollo's cousins in different countries look exactly like him, only with different hats.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Dies in the first three episodes, but keeps coming back. Only the second one is explained (a 1-Up Mushroom). The third time around, the one where the quote below comes from, he made good friends with Hades who let him out. Canonically, Frollo only died that time. The rest of his "deaths" are Youtube Poop gags and are irrelevant to the plot.
    "I will never die!"
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Gaston.
  • Wall of Weapons: He keeps a variety of firearms behind his fireplace, which ranges from handguns to shotguns and assault rifles. He also owns a jeep called the Hellrider, armed with a turret in its rear.
  • We Can Rule Together: Achmed Frollo attempts to persuade Frollo to his side by reminding him that he is family... but fails to do so, possibly due to the fact that he says that he'll also get to rape Panty.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Stocking calls him out for being childish, hypocritical, and downright traitorous during his misadventures.
    • He gets a massive one from his friends in episode 17 after he forcefully broke Madotsuki and mercy killed Lemongrab and said that the latter served his purpose. It's later subverted in episode 20 when it turns out they were understanding of his mercy kill of Lemongrab and hold no ill will for it, but the Wilfmension hit Frollo with a massive Mind Screw that left him completely oblivious to their presence and caused him to block out any attempts to grab his attention. Stocking and the others are forced to move on without him after multiple failed attempts, and marked Lemongrab's grave out of respect for him.
  • You Fool!: Frequently calls people idiots.

    Gaston 

Gaston

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gaston_4.png
Voiced by: Richard White

"We're not safe until his head is mounted on my wall!"

One of the main characters, Gaston is an arrogant jock who enjoys playing tricks and mucking about with his friend Frollo. He's also developed a sense of heroism, but that's not saying much.


  • Abnormal Ammo:
    • He swallows a bunch of grenades to fire one humongous rocket-propelled grenade at Marco Antonio Regil.
    • He can also be used as a gun to fire eggs.
  • Adaptational Heroism: While he still shares the pride as his canon counterpart, he lacks a few of the negative traits. His "atrocities" are relatively tame at best.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: While his film counterpart is capable of scheming and manipulation, he's a Dumb Muscle compared to this show's counterpart. See Indy Ploy and The Smart Guy for more details.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: In part 2 of "Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents", he gets turned into a zombie by Panty, who got turned into a zombie herself. He got better, though.
  • Anti-Hero: He'll help fight off any threats to Paris, though he still commits some petty crimes like robbing a store.
  • Archer Archetype: An interesting version as he's a loud, musclebound bruiser, but he's capable of great feats of strength.
  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Richard White.
  • Badass Normal: Most characters can manipulate fire, access Super Modes, wield Dream World effects, summon portals, fly, and levitate objects, among others. Gaston, outside of certain scenes, manages to stay on top with nothing but his trusty bow and arrow, blunderbuss, and bare fists.
  • Bash Brothers: With Frollo. This is best emphasized during part 4 of "Frollo Finally Does It"; when Frollo's allies try to get Frollo back to his senses and fail after several attempts, Gaston is the only one that follows Frollo to the end, as he doesn't believe he's Not Himself.
  • The Big Guy
  • Big "YES!": Weaponized in "Frollo Fucks the Gods".
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Naturally.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "No one [X]s like Gaston!"
    • "Whoa!"
    • "I know..."
  • Character Development: Slightly. He's still very arrogant, but on one occasion, he acknowledged that he doesn't drive very well.
    Panty: Your driving sucks!
    Gaston: I know...
  • Combat Pragmatist: No one takes cheap shots like Gaston.
  • Cool Guns: As per the original film, a blunderbuss.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Admits that he doesn't know how to drive a car.
  • Dumb Muscle: Downplayed. Given his ability to come up solutions quickly, he's as close to a Genius Bruiser in this show.
  • Edible Ammunition: The Egg Blaster, a blunderbuss that does exactly what it says: firing eggs.
    Stalin: You didn't tell me they had egg blasters!
    Dmitri Frollo: Fucking run!
    • Similarly, he can also be used a gun to fire eggs.
  • 8.8: In-universe, he shoots a man in the pub for giving him 9.8 points instead of 10.
  • Eye Scream: To make sure Gaston wasn't an illusion, Frollo decides to poke him in the eye. This was Gaston's reaction.
    • Gaston also inflicts this on Hans Frollo by shooting him with an arrow.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: They started off as enemies, but later on he became friends with Guile and M. Bison.
  • Fridge Horror: In-universe; Gaston didn't know the true meaning of "Hellfire" until he was an adult.
  • Gag Penis: It can travel across the globe!
  • Groin Attack: He kicks Frollo in the balls after realizing what "Hellfire" was really about.
  • Hammerspace: How he's able to keep a lot of things in his pockets, like porn magazines and M&M's.
  • Heroic Build: He's tall, broad, and muscled, with a square chin.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Frollo.
  • Idea Bulb: As seen in the above image, anytime Gaston thinks of something that needs to be done, a lightbulb will appear over his head. However, in "Frollo Enters a Mexican Contest", when he tries to think of a way to pay rent to Frollo's landlord, a dim lightbulb appears instead, accompanied with him replying "I don't knooow."
  • Indy Ploy: As buffoonish as he can be at times, Gaston is usually good at thinking under pressure, and only needs a few seconds of deep thought to come up with a solution to whatever problem comes his way (signified by a light bulb flashing over his head, followed by a shout of "I knooow").
  • Inter Generational Friendship: Gaston's much younger than Frollo.
  • Jerk Jock: Downplayed compared to his original film counterpart. Whenever he's being a jerk, his motivation is largely It Amused Me.
  • The Lancer: Frollo's closest friend.
  • Large Ham: No one's presence is as large as Gaston's!
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: He's not the most sympathetic guy, though.
  • Manchild
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: He's very strong for one, being able to hold his own against most opponents.
  • Never Gets Drunk: It's impressive on how he can keep a functional liver after consuming lots of alcohol.
    "No one takes shots like Gaston!"
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Accidentally sets Frollo's house in fire in the first episode.
  • Only Friend: This is how Frollo describes Gaston during the latter's eulogy. However, by the time of "Frollo Enters A Mexican Contest", he's gained more friends.
  • Poisonous Friend: Interrupts the redemption of a character Frollo is about to turn twice during the big battle. Granted, the first time, he appears to just not have noticed that Hans was about to redeem himself, so it was entirely unwitting, but the second time, he intentionally attacked Hades while he seemed about ready to make up with Frollo and show him mercy/help him out. Although since he shows up from offscreen, it's possible he simply wasn't paying attention before attacking.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Unlike his film counterpart, he plays it straighter here, wearing a red shirt with yellow lapels.
  • Proj-egg-tile: The Egg Blaster is a blunderbuss that fires eggs, which he uses against Stalin and Dmitri Frollo. Frollo can also use him as a gun that fires eggs like Kazooie, sometimes on fire.
  • Rated M for Manly: One of the manliest characters in the show, rivaling that of Leonidas, Spartacus, and Guile.
  • The Smart Guy: He came up with the idea to use Sonic's spring to escape from Hell in the episode Frollo Misses His Mother. And, whenever he thought of something, there would be a lightbulb above his head, and he would say that he knew what should be done.
    Gaston: I know!
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Along with a blunderbuss and his bare fists, a bow and arrow is another one of his preferred weapons.
  • Super Spit: Another favorite tactic of his. While it's capable of tripping over his opponents, he simply uses it for shits and giggles.
  • Talk to the Fist: His preferred method of disposing of annoyances. Used to best effect in a showdown of the dozens against Frollo.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Like in his original film, Gaston's over-the-top manliness is Played for Laughs.
  • This Banana is Armed: Gaston knocks out a clerk with a banana when he and Frollo steal beans from a local store.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Eggs, as usual. They can even be used as projectiles.
  • Troll: Often screws over other people for his own amusement.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Gaston and his cousins Yusuf and Yakuza.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Frollo.
  • Weapon of Choice: A blunderbuss, though later episodes appear to have him drop it in favor of a bow.

Voiced by: Arisa Ogasawara

"Great party! I didn't expect you to meet more nice cocks!"

The blonde angel of the Anarchy duo and Frollo's current love interest. She's abrasive, foul-mouthed, and will screw with nearly any man that's in her way. Can transform her panties into a pistol.


    Stocking Anarchy 

Stocking Anarchy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stocking_3.png
Voiced by: Mariya Ise

"Our armies can't fight each other... but we can."

The goth-loli angel of the Anarchy duo, she has a crush on Frollo, which prompts her to join Los no Frollos after many rejections. Can transform her stockings into katanas.


  • Action Girl
  • Adaptational Heroism: While she's still the same personality-wise to some extent, there's one detail from the original anime left out here: the fact that she's Evil All Along.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: Doesn't quarrel with Panty as often than in the original anime.
  • Anti-Villain: Of the well-intentioned variety.
  • Big Bad: Of the Frollo's Birthday arc. Sorta.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Saves Frollo from Jafar's attack during "Frollo Beats Up Evil Residents".
    • She helps finish Batiatus off so that Madotsuki can deliver the revenge-kill over Ib's death.
  • Big Good: Plays this role in episode 20, where she leads the heroes on their crusade against Wilford Brimley due to Frollo's and Gaston's absences.
  • Buxom Is Better: Well, Hitler seems to think so.
    Hitler: Dark clothing and big busen... [chuckles] Just how the Führer likes it!
  • Create Your Own Villain: She turns over to villainy after one rejection too many, though only to minimize consequences, making this a subversion.
  • Cross Over Ship: Used to date Guile, and is currently interested in Frollo.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: While switching over to the evil side would make her qualify as Dark Is Evil, it's revealed she's actually this.
  • Easily Forgiven: Frollo doesn't seem to hold Stocking raping him against her. In fact, he has a picture of it in his scrapbook.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She tries to humiliate Frollo instead of killing him at first and when fighting him and his allies, enforces a strict no-killing policy against innocent friends of his. In fact, she even kills Batiatus herself for murdering Ib.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joins Los no Frollos in "Frollo has a Bad Feeling".
  • Freaky Is Cool: She has a fondness for anything disgusting, which is why she becomes infatuated in guys like Guile (from him farting) and Frollo.
  • Good All Along: She really didn't go that far.
  • I Let You Win: She gives Frollo the victory when he's busy fighting Panty's other 1000 evil exes. She also does this to Jafar when they're battling on the airship to leave him open to being killed.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Stripes I and II. What's better than a single katana? Try two of them.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Though in a different way than Panty. She dresses up in an Elegant Gothic Lolita outfit and has a cuter appearance, and her buxom doesn't hurt either.
  • Multicolored Hair: Navy blue over layer with a pink under layer.
  • Never Hurt an Innocent: And thus why she leaves Batiatus to his just desserts.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Less flippant, impulsive, and more responsible to contrast with Panty's Red Oni.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Oh boy...
  • Sweet Tooth: Like in her home series, she loves sweet food. This unknowingly pushed Wilford Brimley's buttons and caused him to shoo her and Panty off.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Dark outfit, dark blue hair, and very snarky.
  • Token Good Teammate: Stalker tendencies aside, she's the most moral member of Los no Frollos, establishing a strict rule against the harming of innocents and prioritizing on humiliating Frollo instead of actually killing him, unlike other members. She has also stated that his enemies teaming up and Wilford Brimley reaching deityhood would've happened regardless if she was there or not, and she only joined to minimize the casualties.
  • Tranquil Fury: Her reaction to seeing Batiatus killing Ib and violating her "no innocents" rule?
    "She was innocent."
  • Tsundere: Even after calling out Frollo for his selfishness and other character flaws (granted, it's an accurate statement), she still admits that she loves him.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's hard to talk about Stocking when it involves her true motivations of joining Los no Frollos. And that she's not the main villain.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She just joined Frollo's enemies in an attempt to contain the damage.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Aside from her calling Frollo out on his worst traits (see above), Panty calls her out for siding with the Demon Sisters and other villains. Her looks also indicate that she probably regretted her decision.
  • Woman Scorned: Which cemented her Face–Heel Turn. Or so it seems.
