Past Tributes

Notable tributes that participated in Games before the 74th and (with the exception of Maysilee Donner and Titus) won. Winning Games leads to a life of luxury and stability for themselves and their families, or so the Capitol would have you believe. Victors then act as mentors to the succeeding tributes from their district - it's their job to prepare them for arena and line up sponsors for them.

    In General 

  • The Alcoholic: Many past victors turn to vice due to having too much time, money, and PTSD on their hands.
  • Broken Aces: Everyone celebrates their triumph except... most of them.
  • Dwindling Party: Not really a party, but still, out of what's implied to be about several dozens there are only seven remaining by the end of Mockingjay Part 2.
  • Gilded Cage/Lonely at the Top: Their five-star housing and life of luxury post-Games is this. The Capitol can still kill their loved ones if they don't behave.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: They've known each other for many years.
  • Mentor Archetype: It's their job to mentor the tributes from their district.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Majority of them consider their victory as such.
  • Retired Badass: Technically all of them until the Quarter Quell comes around.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: To varying degrees. How would you react if you live well, despite knowing you only got that far due to 23 other kids dying (some of which you watched die or killed yourself)? For bonus points, There Are No Therapists.

District 1

    Gloss 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gloss11.jpg
"We're not going by choice. You are our family, I don't see how anyone can love us better."
Portrayed By: Alan Ritchson

The male District 1 tribute who participated in the 75th Hunger Games. He was the victor of the 63rd Hunger Games.


  • Abusive Parents: Cashmere's actor, Stephanie Schlund, states that the siblings' parents were extremely hard on them.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Gloss and his sister won two consecutive games, the only known example of doing so.
  • Brother-Sister Team: With Cashmere, his sister. They're shown training together.

    Cashmere

"I'm sorry. I just can't stop crying."
Portrayed By: Stephanie Leigh Schlund

The female tribute from District 1 who participated in the 75th Hunger Games, the third Quarter Quell. She was also the victor of the 64th Hunger Games.

District 2

    Brutus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brutus_84.jpg
Portrayed By: Bruno Gunn

A male Career tribute from District 2. He was also the victor of an unspecified Hunger Games


    Enobaria 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/enobaria_3315.jpg
Portrayed By: Meta Golding

A female tribute from District 2. She was the victor of the 62nd Hunger Games and competed again in the 75th Hunger Games. Being a previous victor, she presumably mentored other tributes for the games.


  • Ax-Crazy: You have to be if you choose to file your teeth into sharp points.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Brutus. This doubles as a Big-Bad Ensemble with Snow. Snow is the overall Big Bad, however, as far as the games are concerned, Enobaria, Brutus, and the other two Careers are the enemy.
  • Blood Knight: She shows enthusiasm and gusto for returning into the arena. She's just as upset about it as everyone else, though.
  • Degraded Boss: From adversary in the Quarter Quell to just one of the surviving victors after the war ends.
  • Demoted to Extra: In both the book and film of Mockingjay, she only appears in one scene near the end that gathers all of the surviving victors together.
  • Man Bites Man: Her preferred method of combat — killing people with her cosmetically-sharpened teeth.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being a brute, she does take part in holding hands with Katness and the other tributes before being forced back into the Hunger Games.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Her appearance in the council of former victors shows she's reasonable (if a little revenge-happy) when not forced into battle.

District 3

    Beetee Latier 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/laitier_beetee.jpg
Portrayed By: Jeffrey Wright

The male tribute from District 3 who participated in the 75th Hunger Games, was the victor of an unspecified Hunger Games, and is one of the 6 people who survived the 75th Hunger Games. Beetee is an expert with electronics and wiring.


  • Adaptation Name Change: He got a surname in the films.
  • Black and Nerdy: He's black, and his intelligence seems to isolate him socially to a certain extent.
  • The Cracker: After joining the District 13 Resistance, he divides his time between hacking the Capitol's network (which he designed) and building weapons.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has a very dry, understated sense of humor.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Mockingjay: Part 2.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: With Wiress, with whom he shares a close bond.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He has a talent for building... well, anything.
  • Handicapped Badass: His injuries from the Quarter Quell put him in a wheelchair, but he's still every bit the engineering genius, now adding Systems Cracker and Weaponsmith to his list of titles.
  • The Load: Beetee spends a lot of time in Catching Fire being carried around by Peeta (and occasionally Finnick). Subverted, though, since it's thanks to him that they were able to leave the arena at all.
  • Non-Action Guy: Beetee is not a physically formidable man; as a result, he relies on his intelligence to get ahead. He survived his Hunger Games through ingenious use of traps.
  • Salt and Pepper: The pepper to Wiress' salt.
  • The Smart Guy: He's probably the most intelligent member of the cast.

    Wiress 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wiress.jpg
Portrayed By: Amanda Plummer

A female tribute from District 3. She was known for winning an unspecified Hunger Games, and then participated again in the 75th Hunger Games.


District 4

    Finnick Odair 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/odair_finnick.jpg
"What about you, Girl on Fire? Any secrets worth my time?"
Portrayed By: Sam Claflin

A male victor from District 4. He was known for winning the 65th Hunger Games at the age 14 and was later one of the survivors of the 3rd Quarter Quell.


  • Beta Couple: With Annie.
  • The Casanova: His public persona. He's devastatingly loyal to Annie, though, who loves him back.
  • Famed In-Story: One of the most popular victors.
  • Fun Personified: Implied to be his natural personality, when he's not in the midst of crippling depression or otherwise wearing one of his other masks. He's easygoing, likes to tease and play little jokes on people, but also prone to cracking jokes at his own expense, such as when he says he can't leave Mags because she actually likes him.
  • Ladykiller in Love: With Annie.
  • The Lancer: To Katniss in the Quarter Quell.
  • Like Brother and Sister: With Johanna; Finnick is one of the only people Johanna trusts.
  • Mercy Kill: Gets one as Katniss explodes Finnick along with the Mutts mauling him to death.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In-universe example; later deconstructed.
  • Nice Guy: By far one of the least flawed and most generally likable people in Panem whom we meet. It may seem odd at first because career tributes are typically portrayed in a more negative light, but Katniss eventually comes to realize that they are just pawns like everyone else in the Capitol's sadistic and varied games of control.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: He does occasionally get up too close to Katniss just to mess with her.
  • Prongs of Poseidon: His weapon of choice.
  • Scarpia Ultimatum: Essentially Snow's method of making sure Finnick plays along with being sold to Capitol citizens is by threatening to kill those he loves if he fails to comply.
  • Sex Slave: What President Snow turned him into due to his attractive appearance. Finnick was forced to play ball when Snow threatened to murder his loved ones if he did not. Apparently, this in not all too uncommon among victors who are considered physically attractive.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Averted. Zig-Zagged. His original Games didn't seem to have an impact on him, but he sinks into a terrible depression after Annie is arrested by the Capitol, has trouble focusing on anything, and has a nervous breakdown over what might be happening to her after watching Katniss do the same. He seems relatively able to hold himself together, but it's a fragile thing and he does it mostly for other people's benefit. With Annie gone in "Mockingjay," he's relatively out of it, up until he realizes that he needs to help Katniss hold herself together.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Justified, as it turns out. Apparently being an extremely attractive victor has a bigger downside than you'd think.
  • Something Only They Would Say: How he convinces Katniss he's on her side in the film - he tells her "Remember who the real enemy is."
  • Spiky Hair: Sports an anime-like hairstyle in Catching Fire. In Mockingjay, it's toned down a bit.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: While Katniss and Peeta are actually an aversion, Finnick and Annie play this straight. They're not allowed to be together because he's far too attractive for Snow to be able to resist turning him into a sex slave and she is too mentally unstable to be considered a suitable partner for him in public.
  • Survival Mantra: Non-verbal example: his constant knotting in the third movie.
  • Troll: Tries to corrupt Katniss by seductively eating sugar cubes in front of her before the Quarter Quell.
  • Tyke-Bomb: He'd qualify just for being a Career, but while most Careers volunteer at 18, Finnick is specifically singled out for winning his Games at 14. In the film, Haymitch says he is the youngest ever, straight-up.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Befitting his status as Mr. Fanservice, he's constantly shirtless before the Quarter Quell.

    Annie Cresta 
Portrayed By: Stef Dawson

A victor from District 4. Annie is known for winning the 70th Hunger Games.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her seconds-long cameo in the Catching Fire film (and later confirmed in Mockingjay) shows her with red hair, as opposed to the books' brown.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: While she went through a Heroic BSoD during her Games, her symptoms in the books sound an awful lot like schizophrenia.
  • Beta Couple: With Finnick.
  • Break the Cutie: Her experience in the Games wasn't pleasant, to say the least, and left her shell-shocked to the point that she almost completely lost her mind.
  • Damsel in Distress: Annie is captured and held prisoner by the Capitol at the end of Catching Fire, but she is rescued in Mockingjay.
  • Demoted to Extra: She eventually has quite a few scenes in the final book, but barely even speaks in the movies.
  • Heroic BSoD: Twice: first when she witnesses her district partner being beheaded in her Games, and again when her name is drawn for the Quarter Quell. Luckily for her, Mags volunteers to take her place.
  • I Have Your Wife: Captured by the Capitol to be used as leverage against Finnick. Fortunately, the rebels save her.
  • Meaningful Name: Annie Cresta is from District 4, whose main industry is fishing.
  • Olympic Swimmer: How she won her games, outswimming the other tributes.
  • The Ophelia: She's presented as unstable at the best of times.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Never specified, but twice her hair is mentioned as voluminous and very long.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Not necessarily a more extreme example than many other victors, who are just as broken after their games, but simply a more noticeable one. Haymitch lampshades this at one point, commenting that Annie is actually not crazy, it's just that her PTSD manifests itself in a form which makes most people think she is, instead of the typical substance abuse, or reckless, self-destructive, jerkass behavior that comes to define most of the other victors.
  • So Happy Together: She and Finnick.
  • Someone to Remember Him By: The honeymoon was cut short, but Annie still got a child out of Finnick.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: While Katniss and Peeta are actually an aversion, Finnick and Annie play this straight. They're not allowed to be together because he's far too attractive for Snow to be able to resist turning him into a sex slave and she is too mentally unstable to be considered a suitable partner for him in public.
  • Weak, but Skilled: We never heard of her killing anyone, but she could swim, so she outlasted everyone when the arena flooded. Though it is a safe bet she killed a few tributes before the death of her district partner, given that she was a career tribute.
  • What Does He See In Her: Out of all the rich and powerful lovers that Finnick's had, "the mad girl he left behind him" is the only one he truly loves.

    Mags 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mags.jpg
Portrayed By: Lynn Cohen

The female tribute from District 4 during the 75th Hunger Games, for which she volunteered for Annie Cresta. She was also the victor of an unspecified Hunger Games.


  • Adaptational Name Change: a poster of her reveals that her surname is Flanagan.
  • Cool Old Lady: She's 80, probably the oldest living victor.
  • Face Death with Dignity: She simply kisses Finnick good-bye and walks right into the poison fog.
  • Go Out with a Smile: And is smiling as the fog engulfs her.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Took Annie's place in the Quarter Quell, knowing that the Games are a death sentence at the best of times. At her age, she doesn't stand a chance. Then she makes one again when she walks into the poison fog, since Katniss is injured and Finnick isn't strong enough to carry her and Peeta.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Finnick, Katniss and Peeta, especially Finnick. Possibly to Annie.
  • I Will Only Slow You Down: Walks into poison fog so that Finnick can focus on rescuing Peeta instead.
  • The Load: She is literally The Load in Catching Fire, as she is an elderly woman whom Finnick carries around in the arena. She was his mentor, and volunteered as tribute to save his love, Annie. She eventually gives up her own life by walking into a poisonous fog, so that Finnick will turn his efforts to protecting Katniss.
  • The Mentor: She is Finnick's mentor.
  • Morality Pet: She's the first indication that Finnick is a decent guy by the way he cares about her. Despite being a Career, he, like Katniss, values her over the younger, stronger competitors.
  • Neutral Female: Because of her age. Since she was a previous victor, though, we can assume she was an Action Girl in the past.
  • The Speechless: She never speaks at all during the movie, only communicating via facial expressions and body language.

District 7

    Johanna Mason 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mason_johanna.jpg
"He can't hurt me. There's no one left that I love."
Portrayed By: Jena Malone

" The deal was that, if I won the Hunger Games, I get to live the rest of my life in peace, but now, you wanna kill me again. But you know what? Fuck that! And fuck everybody that had anything to do with it!"

A female victor of the 71st Hunger Games from District 7. She was reaped for the third Quarter Quell.


  • Action Girl: As a past tribute. She won her games by pretending to be weak and helpless until the last few tributes remains when she drops the facade and murders them all.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Appears more feminine in the film than what she's described in the books.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Can be quite snarky most of the time.
  • Anti-Hero: She may not be the nicest person you'll meet, but she is part of the alliance willing to keep Katniss alive for the rebellion.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her Weapon of Choice, justified by her coming from the lumber district.
  • Bald Woman: In Mockingjay, likely a Traumatic Haircut in the Capitol's part.
  • The Big Guy: In the Quarter Quell.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Her gambit in her original Games, but ultimately she turns out to be a...
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Jena Malone's performance has plenty of this.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Averted in the film. Except the ending of Mockingjay, given the shaved hair is starting to grow again.
  • Break the Haughty: Is a really self-confident warrior. Water torture breaks her down.
  • Broken Bird: But then again, aren't all past victors?
  • Cluster F-Bomb: In the second film, she delivers one on live-television.
    Johanna: The deal was that if I win the Hunger Games, I get to live the rest of my life in peace, but now you want to kill me again. Well, you know what? [beep] THAT! AND [beep] ANYONE THAT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: How she won her Games. When she actually appears, she drops it.
  • Damsel in Distress: She's taken hostage by the Capitol at the end of Catching Fire and held in their captivity throughout a part of Mockingjay.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "At least they'll have a hard time figuring out our plan, since we can't even understand it ourselves."
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: When she's introduced, she acts as little more than a jerkass. However, she becomes somewhat nicer later on, as well as more sympathetic, especially when it turns out that she's one of the tributes in on the operation from District 13 to break out Katniss.
  • Demoted to Extra: Though she still appears in several scenes, her most significant impact on the story in Mockingjay (her training with Katniss) is cut from the films.
  • Electric Torture: Subjected to this courtesy of the Capitol.
  • Famed In-Story: Like all other victors.
  • Foil: She's Katniss, if Katniss didn't have a younger sister to care for, right down to being the only female victor in her district. At one point, Katniss wonders if Johanna's treatment of her is what it's like to have an older sister that hates you.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Being on Katniss's side doesn't stop her from being rude, insulting, and harsh.

    Blight 
Portrayed By: Bobby Jordan

  • Demoted to Extra: While Blight never really was important to the story, his onscreen appearance in the film is only in the interviews, and later in a passing mention by Johanna.
  • Killed Offscreen: He dies during the blood rain, his cannon did wake up Katniss though.
  • Meaningful Name / Punny Name: Blight is an illness that afflicts trees.
  • Morality Pet: Makes Johanna show an unusual feeling of sadness and empathy.
  • Perma-Stubble: Always seen with his scruffy beard.
  • Red Herring: He is made out to be a major player, but later dies offscreen.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Katniss never really gets to meet him. He is later killed when he ran into the forcefield during the blood rain. Thus, he never had the chance to protect Katniss and Peeta.

District 11

    Seeder 
Portrayed By: Maria Howell

  • Cool Old Lady: Is said to be older than most of the tributes, like Mags and Woof.
  • Demoted to Extra: Is only in one scene in the film, and she doesn't inform Katniss about Rue's family.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: She is killed in the initial brawl at the Cornucopia.

    Chaff 
Portrayed By: E. Roger Mitchell

  • The Alcoholic: Haymitch thinks he drinks a lot.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Lost his hand during his Games.
  • Dirty Old Man: Drunkenly makes out with Katniss. Haymitch and Peeta think this is hilarious, but Katniss doesn't see the funny side.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: He's a friend of Haymitch's. They both turned to drinking after their Games.
  • Handicapped Badass: Due to his lost hand
  • Only Friend: Haymitch.
  • Red Herring: Haymitch goes out of his way to introduce Chaff to Katniss, suggests him as an ally, and we see him teasing her the same way her eventual allies, Finnick and Johanna, do. Chaff has absolutely no bearing on the plot despite surviving almost to the end of the Games and dies off-screen with no fanfare.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He survives nearly to the end of the Games, but receives very little focus and when he does die, it's offscreen.

District 12

    Haymitch Abernathy 

Haymitch Abernathy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abernathy_haymitch9.jpg
"Remember who the real enemy is."
Portrayed By: Woody Harrelson

"Embrace the probability of your imminent death, and know in your heart that there's nothing I can do to save you."

The only living Hunger Games victor from District 12.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the books he's described as dark haired (the "Seam look"), but in the movie he's very blond.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Katniss's descriptions of him in the books, particularly the first book, make him out to be super gross, though she reluctantly admits that he wasn't bad looking when he was younger and would have been an attractive adult if not for the numerous unpleasant side-effects of his alcoholism. At no point does Woody Harrelson even come close to the outright disgusting nature of Haymitch in much of the books, looking scruffy at worst for the most part; there's a reason he attracted more fangirls and shippers in the movies, for sure.
  • Age Lift: You can actually work out Haymitch's exact age in the first book: he's 40, note  and therefore is presumably 40-ish by the end of the series, though he's described as looking a little older, presumably due to the incredible stress he's lived with for most of his life. In the films the exact details of when his games took pace are omitted, presumably because he's portrayed by an actor who was already in his fifties when the first film was released.
  • The Alcoholic: It's toned down significantly from the books, where he's portrayed as actively struggling with alcoholism while he's dealing with everything else that's going on. In the films he's occasionally Nailed to the Wagon, but it doesn't really interfere with his other duties too much; for example, he doesn't spend the beginning of Mockingjay hospitalised with severe withdrawal symptoms, like he does in the books.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Bickers a lot with Katniss and at one point outright tells her he would have rather focused on saving Peeta in the 74th Games but there are also moments that show that him and Katniss care deeply about each other. It's his embrace she throws herself into after winning the Games and in "Mockingjay" it's his arms she cries in over the torture of Peeta.
  • Birds of a Feather: Has a lot of similarities to Katniss. Perversely this often results in them taking out their own self-hatred on each other.
  • The Chessmaster: In Catching Fire, Haymitch helps orchestrate Katniss's escape from the Quarter Quell.
  • Catchphrase: "Stay alive."
  • Cynical Mentor: Due to dealing with the trauma from his own games coupled with years and years of watching his charges die in the arena.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: The deleted scene where Peeta attempts to knock booze out of his hands features Haymitch pinning him down with his bare foot. The final cut of the films (as well as the books) don't really comment on this quirk.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Unable to cope with the emotional fallout of having been a tribute in the Games and subsequently having to lead fresh tributes to the slaughter, he dives into a bottle.
  • Insufferable Genius: Back in the day. Still definitely has traces of this attitude but most of it has been beaten out of him.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Katniss and Peeta. He likes Peeta best, but he and Katniss are so alike that he has an easier time understanding (and manipulating) her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's jaded and bitter, certainly, but that's because of how many times where he's watched Non-Action Guy tributes get blown up. He becomes a lot more helpful when Katniss gets fed up with his bull and proves herself having more than a snowball's chance in hell.
  • Kid Hero All Grown-Up: He was a winning tribute of the Hunger Games as a teen but has since become a depressed alcoholic, but eventually returns to heroism as a leader of the rebellion in the third movie.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: He's one of the most morally upstanding characters in the setting. It's just by the time we first meet him he is so utterly broken that he just seems to be nothing more than a useless drunkard who couldn't care less about the fate of the kids under his care.
  • Nailed to the Wagon: Courtesy of Peeta in "Catching Fire" and of District Thirteen in "Mockingjay".
  • The Nicknamer: Katniss is "sweetheart" and Peeta is "the boy".
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: At first Katniss just assumes (like everyone else in her district) that he is nothing but a useless drunkard with no social skills. Then it's revealed that Haymitch is secretly manipulating the events of the quell to aid the rebel cause and is no where near as stupid or as useless as everyone assumes him to be... while also being a drunkard with no social skills. Although to be fair, both Katniss and Peeta had already begun to realize this. It's the Capitol who (sadly for them) does not.
  • One-Man Army: In his Hunger Games, he was downright scary, able to take on whole squads of armed careers with a knife and win.
  • Parental Substitute: For Katniss, although they both seem loathe to admit it, it is certainly there. Peeta lampshades this by pointing out that how similar the two of them are to each other seems to be the reason they bicker so much.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: You have to squint pretty hard to catch the hints of something going on between Haymitch and Effie in the books. The films make their growing attraction to each other much more explicit - helped in large part by the fact that it mainly happens in the Mockingjay movies, during scenes where Effie was no longer present in the books.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Related to the above: by the end of Mockingjay: Part 2, it's heavily implied that he and Effie have either experienced one off-screen or - more likely - are looking forward to one once his exile with Katniss is over.
  • Ship Tease: With Effie.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Katniss and Peeta. At first it seems like he merely supports the idea of them pretending to have a romance but by the second movie he seems to support the pairing for real.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: He starts off as this but progresses to Cynical Mentor when he discovers that Katniss and Peeta may actually have a fighting chance, and ends up as something of a Team Dad.
  • Smart People Play Chess: In "Catching Fire" he is seen playing chess with Peeta.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: He's a cynical drunk who often appears callous, but he's really just suffering from PTSD.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Though he doesn't die in the books, Katniss mentions that once she and Peeta are able to take care of themselves, Haymitch basically drinks what's left of District 12 dry before disappearing from their lives forever (and quite possible just drinking himself to death somewhere else). The film ends his story short of this downbeat outcome, and adds a hinted Relationship Upgrade with Effie, and shows him sharing a meal with Katniss and Peeta, making Haymitch's future prospects seem much happier in the film than the book.
  • Team Dad: To Katniss and Peeta.
  • Trickster Mentor: Haymitch is a lazy alcoholic whose methods often seem ineffective, cynical or pointless, but everything he does has a specific purpose and makes him an excellent mentor to Katniss and Peeta.
  • True Companions: With many of the victors, but most importantly with Katniss and Peeta to whom he becomes a Team Dad.
  • Try Not to Die: His go-to advice.
  • Wake-Up Fighting: Haymitch sleeps with a knife, and waking him up is a rather dangerous thing to do.

Other Districts

    District 5 
Portrayed By: Ivette Li-Sanchez & James Logan

    District 6 
Portrayed By: Justin Hix & Megan Hayes

  • Big Damn Heroes: The female saves Peeta in the nick of time.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: The female tribute sacrifices her life to save Peeta. He feels some guilt over being saved by someone whose name he doesn't even know.
  • Hidden Depths: Haymitch must have known that they would be able to protect Katniss and Peeta, despite how addled they were.
  • Lethal Joke Character: The female.
  • Master of Disguise: The female's talent. She uses it to appear from thin air in order to protect Peeta. Haymitch said this is how both the morphlings won their games.
  • No Name Given: Referred to only as the Male and Female Morphlings.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: The female.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The male is killed in the initial brawl at the Cornucopia.
  • Younger and Hipper: Despite being stated to be among the older tributes in the book, they only look about 20-30 in the movie. Justified as their actors, Justin Hix and Megan Hayes, are around that age.

    District 8 
Portrayed By: Elena Sanchez & John Casino

  • Adaptational Badass: Woof is described to be senile and fragile in the book. In the film, however, he is a lot more physically fit, justified due to his actor being a stuntman.
  • Adapted Out: Cecelia's three children, who provide her only real moment of characterisation in the book (and lead to a discussion of what happens to the children of past victors) are not present in the film.
  • Demoted to Extra: Katniss never talks to them in the training center, nor are they mentioned when Haymitch introduces the tributes to them or the bloodbath, only being seen at the interviews and the tribute parade in the film.
  • Retired Badass: Both, as they were both victors. Cecelia is among the last to be killed in the bloodbath in the movie, along with the District 9 and 10 females.
  • Take Care of the Kids: Cecelia knew she wouldn't make it out of the Quarter Quell alive.

    District 9 
Portrayed By: Marian Green & Daniel Bernhardt

  • An Axe to Grind: The female preferred axes.
  • No Name Given: Neither Tribute is named within the film.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: According to Marian Green, most of the bloodbath was cut from the film. Which mean most people won't get to see her beating the District 5 female to almost death and fighting most of the Careers and almost killing Brutus.
  • Recurring Extra: The female, along with the District 5 male, are the most seen unnamed tributes.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Both were killed in the initial bloodbath.

    District 10 
Portrayed By: Jackson Spidell & Tiffany Waxler

  • No Name Given: Neither Tribute is named.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Neither of them get much in the way of screen-time, serving largely as fodder.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It is never shown how the District 10 male died, and his portrait is never shown in the sky in the film. It is assumed he is killed the same way he was in the novel.
