Nanoha Takamachi

Anchor for the Nanohaverse and one of the earliest magical girl anchors following Usagi

  • Ambiguously Gay: No one knows for certain if she and Fate are in a relationship, and the two of them seem to take some level of amusement in not being clear about it. Though this is Depending on the Writer. She's eventually confirmed to be in a relationship with Fate, as if that wasn't obvious.
  • Berserk Button: Tsukishima. He is one of the very few people Nanoha outright hates, and might have even killed him (Though it was an Ambiguous Ending).
  • Good Parents: Along with Fate to Vivio. Enough so that Anakin sought her out for advice
  • Happily Married: Thanks to Hayate's interference, she and Fate are now married.
  • Mama Bear: Vivio is not to be harmed. There is a reason Anakin had a healthy fear of her wrath after a fused loop with Tarkin kidnapping Vivio.




The haggard Anchor of the Nanosaur loops, Nano suffered a twenty minute baseline that gave him no time to mentally rest and decompress. This lead to Nano becoming a rather unwelcome Looper till the poor guy managed to get a nap and his thoughts straight to actually tell the others why he was so grouchy and hyper aggressive. This is no longer the case as the twenty minute baseline was found to be a glitch that was fixed by the admins.


Shirou Emiya

Third-rate Magus, master chef and Ally of Justice.

    One Piece 

Monkey D. Luffy

Captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, and eternal meat lover.

  • True Companions: With his crew; the Straw Hats all started Looping within 10 Loops of their initial Loop.

    One-Punch Man 

Saitama "Caped Baldy"

A hero, just for fun, his experience in the Loops tend to lean towards casual indifference.

  • World's Strongest Man: Notable in that only he can keep his immense skill set, much to his annoyance. While he is hardly the strongest character in the Loops, he still is far above the level of most other Loopers, save the O7, Superman, Goku, and a handful of others.

    Pokémon (multiple worlds) 


Registered as #025 in the Kanto Pokedex, this particular Pikachu is the one belonging to Ash Ketchum, and is the Anchor of the Anime Branch of the World of Pokemon.


The original protagonist of Pokemon Special, Red is the Anchor for Special and the rest of the Manga Branches.


Looping from the Crash, and #007 in the Kanto Pokedex, this Squirtle is the Protagonist and Anchor of the Rescue Team part of the Mystery Dungeon Branch.


Looping from the Crash, and #004 in the Sinnoh Pokedex, this Chimchar is the Partner and Anchor of the Explorers part of the Mystery Dungeon Branch.


Looping from the Crash, and #007 in the Unova Pokedex, this Oshawott is the Protagonist and Anchor of the Gates to Infinity part of the Mystery Dungeon Branch.

  • Meta Guy: Oshawott is this, planning reactions to virtually every bad loop based on the density of Hub World fiction and complex math.
  • Literal-Minded: Plot Armor, made of guide books anyone?



The Postal Dude Jr.

The anchor of the Postal loops, The Dude is a Sociopath, a Jerkass, and has a glitch that permanently renders him unable to expand his powers.

  • Can't Catch Up: The Dude has an unknown glitch that prevents him from expanding his looper powers. As a result, the only thing that expands is the subspace pocket that every other looper has. This gives him a severe handicap compared to even a new coming looper.
  • Combat Pragmatist: While he's considered weak by looper standards, by non-looper standards, he's still very much armed to the teeth, and is more than willing to use anything he has on hand to kill you if you piss him off.
  • Cosmic Plaything: When he started looping, he loops into Paradise, which is a rather terrible place to loop. On top of the crap he has to up with in baseline, he's also unable to gain looper powers and when he loops into other worlds, he ends up getting screwed over in one way or another for some reason.
  • Jerkass
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Granted, Postal 2 never was a clean game in the slightest, but compared to most loopers, he has a foul mouth.
  • The Sociopath: Outright stated by Zeus that he's this, and freely admits to being one.

The Other Postal Dude

An offshoot of the original thanks to The Paradise Lost expansion, he's basically a less sociopathic Dude, and an even bigger jerkass.

     Power Rangers 

Tommy Oliver

AKA "Technicolor Tommy", the Anchor of the main Power Rangers universe has served as the Green Mighty Morphin Ranger, the White Mighty Morphin Ranger (with two different Power Coins), the Red Zeo Ranger, the first Red Turbo Ranger and the Black Dino Thunder Ranger.

Schuyler "Sky" Tate

Anchor for the Power Rangers S.P.D. universe, where he originally served as S.P.D. Blue Ranger, before being promoted to Red after the original Red, Jack Landors, retired. He was later mentioned as being promoted again, this time to Commander of the Earth S.P.D. base.

Ziggy Grover

Anchor for the Power Ranger RPM universe, where he served as Ranger Operator Series Green.

     Red VS Blue 

Michael J. Caboose

Anchor for the Universe of Red VS Blue. Private/Captain of Blood Gulch’s Blue Team/Chorus’ Rebel Army. He loves everyone. Unless you’re Replacing Church. Then he’ll kill you

  • Badass Baritone: Whenever he goes into Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass.
  • Badass Boast: Speaks this way when he taps into his "mean" side.
    Caboose: My name is Michael J. Caboose and I hate babies! ( He hates jelly babies. Not actual ones.)
    Caboose: I will eat your unhappiness!
    Caboose: Your toast has been burned! And no amount of scraping will remove the black parts!
  • Break the Cutie: The Punishment Loop that finally got him to be unable to crash the Punishment Loop was so horrible, that Caboose couldn't stop breaking down into a sobbing fit for several Loops. It got so bad that the RvB Loopers all agreed to threaten to Ascend just to go and kick their Admin’s ass. They didn’t since the Admin did reveal himself and helped fix Caboose and then gave them all a Vacation Loop in Eiken.
  • Captain Oblivious: Is almost always oblivious to what's going on around him as a result of his deteriorated mental state. His thoughts on Doc trying to take over the world whilst possessed by O'Malley?
    Caboose: Yeah, it's like an inside joke.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Far from being just plain stupid, Caboose is almost completely divorced from reality and utters many bizarre yet occasionally insightful non-sequiturs. No one understands how Caboose ended up as the Anchor because he's this, though they believe that Monkey did it on purpose.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite his many mental quirks, Caboose has been shown to possess superhuman strength and, when sufficiently angry Especially when Waltz or Billy are anywhere near him, was able to single-handedly wipe out both the Red and Blue Battle Creek Zealots in Baseline. He's also easily the best shot on the Blue Team (although Tucker is starting to give him a run for his money.) It just happens that he's usually shooting at the Blue Team.
  • Determinator: He's Church's best friend (whether Church likes it or not. As the Loops have gone on, Church has returned this in a way of considering Caboose as his little brother) and nothing will stop him from rescuing Church if he's in trouble. Up until Church finally started Looping, Caboose tried everything he could to save Church from being killed by the EMP, even going so far as ‘team-killing’ him just so he couldn’t follow into the EMP’s range.
  • The Ditz: Easily the dumbest member of the cast. And the fans love him for that.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Occasionally has a good idea.
    Washington: But you guys don't look like Recovery Agents. Or Freelancers.
    Caboose: ...Can't see inside of a tank!
  • Dumb Muscle: He's physically the strongest of the Reds and Blues, being the only one who was able to pick up Andy at first.
  • Dumb Blonde: Luke Mckay's drawing of him shows that he's blond. Half of the Fanon draw him as such too. Anytime he is in a Loop where he doesn’t wear a helmet, he is shown with blond hair.
  • Easily Forgiven: His stupidity constantly destroys the crew's plans, nearly gets them killed, (in many cases), actually gets them killed, and destroys something that is constantly destroyed more often than not (ie: Twilight Sparkle’s tree or current residence to prevent the destruction of said tree library). And yet, he consistently gets off scot-free, and is constantly coddled by the others. Instead of viewing him as an unwitting menace to themselves and their objectives, the team still allows him to be involved in things, and treats him like a confused child.
  • Flanderization: He killed Church twice, once while in a malfunctioning tank, the other while Church was possessing the enemy commander. And yet in later series, being called his ally is the fastest way to get him to shoot you. In the Infinite Loops, never ask Caboose to help you unless you want to die.
    • All the Admins even have a keyboard shortcut for reporting his kills, Ctrl+F+U.
  • Genius Ditz: While Caboose is... well... Caboose, he’s quite amazing with robotics. He was able to put Rock Light (who was replacing Epsilon at the time) into the ancient alien artifact that Epsilon is normally put into in just a matter of minutes, successfully repaired a MEGAS into its original state, and repairing and activating a broken Dalek armor and creating its own AI that kills other Daleks.
  • Idiot Savant: He can fix an AI, create an AI for a repaired Dalek suit, and a Mantis, but he's just not that smart. He was able to figure out that Roll Light was not Church, but only after near the end of a Loop with Church, but still thinks that she is still Church.
  • Image Song: "Your Best Friend"
  • Kid with the Leash: Becomes this on Chorus when he manages to find a MANTIS and convince it to be his friend. Eventually, said ‘friend’ becomes his gun’s AI and then, once Looping, becomes his pet whenever they’re in a Loop together.
  • Lethal Klutz: He has a history of team-killing people he tries to help He does this on purpose whenever someone Loops in as Church. So much so that, not only does any Looper tell Caboose to help someone they want shot or brutally slaughtered, the Admins have their own keyboard shortcut for him (Control+F+U).
  • Meaningful Name: His mind always comes in dead last. If anyone else is discussing something, Caboose will always be the last person to understand what's going on. He can usually be relied on to bring up whatever started the conversation by the time the other guys have finished talking about it.
  • Medium Awareness: He is aware that people are watching him. He even knew that Tucker was screaming in pain and stated “Tucker screamed it” during a Loop where Church was replaced by Roll Light.
  • Mr. Fixit: Caboose seems to have a knack for getting along with machines (given his relationships with Sheila, Andy, Delta, and to a degree Church and Tex), and has the technical skills to transfer Epsilon into a Monitor body, extract Tex from Epsilon and implant her into a robot body, and extract Epsilon from the failing memory device. In Season 11 he manages to repair and befriend a MANTIS combat mech. Noticeably his skills only seem to apply to A.I., as when he tries to work on regular machinery they tend to catch fire.
  • Never My Fault: His usual response when he makes a mistake is to try and avoid blame.
    Caboose: Zeus/Rock/Rainbow Dash/etc did it!
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He may be goofy, but he's far from harmless. This only gets worse when he’s in a Loop without anyone he knows.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: He does this more often than not. It makes him something of a Highly Visible Ninja.
    Caboose: Sneaking. Sneaking. Sneaking. Sneaking.
  • Shout-Out: One of two characters (the other being Donut) named after one of the randomly generated names assigned to temporary multiplayer profiles in Halo: Combat Evolved.
  • Super Strength: He doesn't have any known enhancements, especially not to the level of Texas, but he's often stated as being very strong. The Blues say it's "God's way of compensating" for his low intelligence. He has actually proven to be stronger then her and other Loopers at a number of occasions, she had to ask him for help moving something, He flipped a Warthog with ease, fought an army of Texas Clones And Bass Clones when it was a Loop where Texas was replaced with Bass with maximum ease, and in the Training Montage was able to come first. When he entered an area where gravity was increased tenfold, he didn't even notice.
  • Talkative Loon: He rivals Pinkie Pie with this.
  • Team Killer: He often kills allies (accidentally and on purpose if they replace Church). He always attacks Ash Ketchum no matter what since he was the first to ever replace Church. He’s quite famous for being able to kill every single person who has replaced Church, even the Original Seven. See Flanderization.
  • Undying Loyalty: For all his teamkilling tendencies (that were nobody's fault!), he's also more than once gone to the ends of the Earth to resurrect/rescue Church and those he sees as his family.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Very rarely displayed, even to the point that he had forgotten how to get angry in many Loops. But when he does, he's The Juggernaut. And don’t get him started whenever he’s around Waltz or Billy. And pray for Yggdrasil should he ever Loop in somewhere and there is no one who he sees as family/Church around.

     Rick and Morty 

Rick Sanchez of Earth Dimension C-137

Anchor for the Rick and Morty Loops, his general view of the Loops are quite generally, like many other things he feels about life.

     SCP Foundation 

Dr. Glass

Anchor for the highly variable SCP Foundation Loops. Dr. Glass, a simple psychologist, suddenly finds himself at the higher echelon of the Foundation thanks to being the catalyst of this world's version of SCP-8888, or the loops as the other's call it.


     Sentinels of the Multiverse 

Setback (real name Pete Riske)

Anchor for the Sentinels of the Multiverse loops. Easily the unluckiest Looper in all of Yggdrasil, anything can happen when he's around.

  • Bait-and-Switch Gunshot: Coupled with his Super Luck, Setback held a gun against his head, and pulled the trigger. He missed.
  • BFS: Setback uses a Buster Sword as his main weapon.
  • Shrink Ray: Setback likes to collect, so he shrinks everything he wants to keep to he has room for everything in his Pocket.
  • Running Gag: Whenever Setback makes a casino, something will happen. Usually it involves the casino transforming into something.



Half Genie guardian of Scuttle Town and anchor of her loop.

  • Batman Gambit: Pulls one on Ammo Baron during a loop of the third game.
  • Benevolent Genie: Half-Genie, but Shantae is still a super Nice Girl. One of her goals in the loops is to be the best friend she can to her fellow loopers
  • Lunacy: After replacing Yuelia for one loop, she kept the moon powers and used them to wreck the Pirate Master in the next loop.
  • Parental Substitute: Along with Mimic from baseline, Shantae also sees Risky as one.

    Shin Megami Tensei 

Naoki Kashima

The Anchor for the Conception branch of the Amala Loops universe, he is very skilled at combat and fighting godlike entities, having killed dozens of them in his baseline alone. However, having to experience The End of the World as We Know It billions of times has taken a considerable toll on his psyche, leaving him as one of the most troubled Anchors in all of Yggdrasil. The soul of the demon from the end of his Baseline (The "True Demon" ending) inhabits his head as a Co-Anchor, known as Kashima.

  • Angst? What Angst?: Deconstructed. Denying that he had a problem and refusing to talk to other loopers about it just led to him bottling up until it exploded during an Equestria Loop and he went completely out of control. The events of that loop, as well as the ones following, pretty much made him into a MLE for a while.
  • Ax-Crazy: In his Fiend persona or to be more precise, a combination of the Nightmare Force, his Shadow self, a virus, and Naoki's rage at being stuck with the Amalaverse while the ponies got to live in peaceful Equestria.
  • Break the Badass:
    • Throughout his experiences in the Infinite Loops, he has been forced to watch the world die over and over again, and has had to kill his friends countless times. These experiences have left him very jaded, and he often comes off as abrasive to other Loopers due to his cynicism.
    • His Shadow tried to do this, as an alternative to killing him (which given the circumstances wasn't very feasible)- it goaded Naoki into a berserker rage and took over for an Equestria loop, ensuring he made enemies with some very influential loopers, and with that and his actions in the loops afterwards getting him considered an MLE, meaning most of the multiverse would try to kill him on sight.
  • The Chew Toy: Oh boy, is he ever. Stuck watching the universe being destroyed and his friends going insane no matter what he does, doesn't even have many friendly loopers or Fused Loops to relieve the stress, his first encounter with Equestria was a Bureau loop, and when he got to canon, Sanctuary Loop Equestria, he refused their help because of the bureau loop and went to the Moon, where he ended up influenced by the Nightmare Forces, his Shadow, and his outrage over discovering just how good the ponies had it, and went Ax-Crazy in that loop and mindlessly berserked the ones after, to the point where he was considered an MLE. And because of that, he's rather a pariah among Loopers. Yeesh, he just can't catch a break, can he?
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: He's in a relationship with Slaanesh.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He had to watch the world end and his friends go insane and then die over and over. No variants, no stopping it, very few other loopers, and very few fused loops. His shadow was trying to get him made an MLE, which would be this. Most MLES are too evil, extremist, or stupid to care about their status, but Naoki would. Being an MLE would mean that he would have no chance of making friends or getting a better life, as every looper's reaction to him would be stuck on 'kill on sight'.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: There was a time when he snapped during an Equestria loop after realizing that the ponies got a mostly peaceful world all the time while he was forced to watch the world end and his friends die over and over (though it was more complicated than that), went full sadistic villain on the ponies, and then spent a lot of loops in a berserker rage killing everyone he met. This caused him to be considered a MLE, and that reputation has persisted even when he's fully recovered. His Shadow was invoking this. Normal shadows try to kill their original selves and take over, but the Loops prevent that, so this shadow decided on a different method- absolutely ruining his life by turning the rest of the Multiverse against him and making sure everyone saw him as something to be killed on sight.
  • Kick the Dog: Spent most of his Equestria loop kicking pretty much every small cute animal he could find. He mangled Luna (who died of internal injuries), teleported Celestia into a black hole, and infected Twilight Sparkle (Unawake at the time) with a virus that drove her insane and made her want to eat her friends. And all to prove to Equestrians that the multiverse is way more grimdark than theirs and some villains can't be defeated or reformed by friendship. His shadow was actually doing it to make sure that he would be hated enough to be considered an MLE, which would make the Loops a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: So you're angry that Equestria is a peaceful land that doesn't understand how dark the universe can be, and want to hurt its inhabitants so that they realize that not every problem can be solved by friendship? Well, congratulations, you traumatized those ponies right and proper, and now they're convinced that you absolutely cannot be redeemed. Only thing is, they're very influential loopers, and you've now pissed off pretty much every being in the multiverse that considered them friends. Which is a lot. Enjoy being considered an MLE and hated by everyone. This is Invoked. What Naoki's shadow, who was the one goading him to go on with this, really wanted was to get Naoki hated by enough loopers that he would be considered an MLE, which would totally ruin his life. Death resets with the loops, but but loopers' feelings don't.
  • Sanity Slippage: The poor guy had a terrible universe to start with, and to make matters worse, he had no variants, very few Fused Loops, and few other local Loopers. It's no wonder that his sanity took a turn for the worse, resulting in him temporarily becoming a MLE.
  • Sanity Strengthening: Solving the problem with the Amalaverse (and becoming a traveling looper in the process) have helped him get himself back together.
  • Superpowered Evil Side:
    • Kashima. Unlike many other possessor spirits, the Demon isn't so much evil as sociopathic, and doesn't really try to seize control of their body unless Naoki allows him to. Technically he's still devoted to his original mission of causing total multiversal collapse, but he's sane enough to realize that with the Loops in place, he's better off biding his time until his actions can have some meaningful impact.
    • He has (or at least had, before a Persona loop) a more traditional Superpowered Evil Side in the form of his Shadow, which is quite sadistic and wants nothing more than to completely ruin Naoki's life.
  • Therapy Is for the Weak: One of his few fused loops, with Mass Effect, saw Shepard offer him therapy. He refused it, which really wasn't a good idea.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Eiken is usually considered a punishment loop because it's really boring, locks down on looper powers, and railroads them onto the canon plot. However, to Naoki these things are perks- Eiken is an ordinary high school where he can be an ordinary student, with no end of the world, no being part demon, no nothing. Naoki considers Eiken to be paradise compared to his home loop.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: For a while, a flaw in the Amalaverse meant that no matter what he did, he couldn't stop Conception or save his friends.
  • 0% Approval Rating: He was considered an MLE for a while, after trying his very best to traumatize the Equestrians and then killing everyone he saw afterwards. Even now that he's calmed down and regrets what happened, very few people like him, and Leman Russ once attacked him on sight because of what he'd done to Fluttershy. This was Invoked by his Shadow, who was the one in control during the Equestria loop. The Shadow wanted him to be so hated by the Loopers that he'd always be killed on sight, so it did its very best to hurt the very influential Equestrian Loopers, who could easily have Naoki declared an MLE.


The Anchor for the Persona Loop, Igor is an enigmatic figure whose connection to the series' protagonists has caused a much larger number of Loopers to Awaken in his branch than usual.

  • Not So Above It All: During his early Loops, Igor took to dressing in some unusual costumes to prank his guests in the Velvet Room. However, when he tried to remodel the entire Room into something out of Homestuck, he crashed the Loop and ended up in Eiken. After this, he toned this down considerably.
  • Powers That Be: In spite of his status as Anchor, Igor doesn't do much to change the Loops, mostly just fulfilling the role that he has in baseline to advise and assists guests of the Velvet Room.

     Sly Cooper 

Sly Cooper

A master thief, Sly Cooper is the Anchor of his branch. He is a honourable thief, choosing to steal only from other criminals.



The Anchor for every variant of his branch where a version of him exists.

  • Break the Badass: Had a very nasty Loop with a Metal Sonic in an early Loop. It left some serious psychological scars.
  • Hulking Out: Retains and has control of his Were-Hog mode. Finding a way to keep it was apparently difficult.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Still has some jerkiness.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He has flashbacks to aforementioned Metal Sonic Loop from time to time.

Blaze the Cat

The Anchor for every variant of her branch where a version of Sonic doesn't exist. The two sections are Linked Loops set up to run in tandem (allowing for cross-Loop travel between the two during iterations) by default.



One half of the Squid Sister idol duo and co-anchors with Marie.


One half of the Squid Sister idol duo and co-anchors with Callie.

  • Freakout: Has one when her and Callie loop into Canterlot High and she finds out her favorite food is squid.
  • Only Sane Squid: Marie is just about the only looper from her Branch that has her head fully on straight.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Does not bother hiding she is looping, as the common Inkling will write it off as nothing more than publicity.
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Has this reaction to learning that Callie chose to go to Octavio's side in one loop for the hell of it.

    Spyro the Dragon (Dragon Realms) 

Classic Spyro

Spyro the Dragon is the loop anchor of the Classic Spyro loops. He is usually recognized in his loop for his adventures, and how he managed to pull them off at such a young age. He is very snarky and a bit of a jerk, but deep down he frequently shown that he has a good heart. Due to the fact that there is another Spyro in the loops verse, he usually tends to go by 'Classic' when they're in the same loop. Spyro is snarky, a bit of a jerk, and loves to pull pranks even before the loops started. Despite this, he has shown himself to have a good heart deep down, and tends to be a bit naïve and have a simple view on things, and knows when he's taken something a bit too far.

  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Classic has shown to have a knack for picking up concepts and powers rather quickly. He managed to learn the Magic Command Line over the course of one loop at the near end of said loop, can understand and run spells simply by reading about them in a book, and managed to achieve flight under his own power on his own after his Legend counterpart only mentioned their was a spiritual side to flying... but at the same time, he only learned these things because they either interested him or he was in a situation where he needed to learn them. If it were up to him, he'd much rather be out playing pranks and getting up to general looper shenanigans than study for even a few minutes.
  • Bubble Gun: One of Classic's elements is the 'bubble' element. Though he originally found it useless in the baseline, after going through a loop using only it, he managed to come up with a surprising number of uses for it.
  • Celibate Hero: Part of the reason he avoided Ember for a greater part of the loops she was awake for when he found out she was looping. He slowly appears to be developing out of this mindset though.
  • Dream Walker: Has this ability thanks to learning it from an unawake Princess Luna.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his bragging and rather brash nature, he has quite a few moments that show he's Not So Different from his Legend counterpart.
  • Indy Ploy: Classic Spyros favorite tactic in battles, in stark contrast to Legends who relies mostly on his training. Sometimes it works well for him. Other times... not so much.
  • I Shall Taunt You: His second favorite tactic. How much of it is taunting to throw the enemy off their game, and how much of it is him generally poking fun at people he fights is up to interpretation.
  • Mirror Self: To Legend Spyro, naturally. While Legend is a bit more reserved and level headed, Classic is mischievous and has Leeroy Jenkins tendencies.
  • Parental Abandonment: Has no clue who his baseline parents are, and is mostly raised (rather loosely) by the Artisans in the Artisan Realm. Sparx thinks it might be because he was an 'unplanned miracle' for a dragon couple who was either too young or not ready to handle raising a child yet. Either way, despite the fact that several loopers have expressed concern over this, Classic says he's okay with not having parents, since it gives him more freedom in both the loops and in baseline. (Though, he does seem to be a tad bit curious over who they were...)
  • Power Copying: Classic's 'magic command line' allows him to do this with magic. All he needs to do is scan a spell someone else has used, and he can add it to his backlog of stored spells. However, he can only have a max limit of spells stored, though spells he learned naturally (like Lunas Dream Walking) don't take up this space.
  • Sufficiently Analyzed Magic: Classic Spyros 'Magic Command Line'. As the name implies, it acts very much like the command line of a computer, even bringing up a command prompt only Classic can see. This allows he to do things like cast spells instantly without need for runes or set up, 'hack' into enchanted artifacts, cancel other spells, scan the area for any magic at work, and copy any spells that are identified.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Refuses to kill anything that isn't magical in nature or a robotic in nature, even when a loop reset would bring them back to life.
    • However, he's revealed that he has a limit. He's perfectly fine shoving the Sorceress from Spyro 3 into acid when she doesn't try to mend her ways.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Seems to be becoming this to Ember, now that she's stopped fawning over him and the two are on more friendly terms. The second day after they started hanging out, he already managed to convince her to drop stuff out the window onto enchanted ground to see how high it'll bounce. note 

Legend Spyro

Anchor for the Legend of Spyro Loop, Spyro is the Legendary purple dragon. Not to be confused with his Classic counterpart, who is also an Anchor. This Spyro is often referred to as 'Legend' Spyro to limit the confusion. Perhaps it is because he had the mantle of destiny thrown upon him or the fact that he grows to a later age than his counterpart, but for whatever the reason when comparing the two this Spyro is the more Level-headed and responsible. Also because of his Loops setting, Legend's Spyro has more direct power to bring to bear in a straight fight.

  • Blood Knight: If "Dark Spyro" is to be believed, Legends has these urges though seems to suppress them the majority of the time.
  • The Berserker: "Dark Spyro," full stop. In his "Dark" state he will ignore all damage that he has sustained and or takes.
  • Byronic Hero: Legend comes across as one. He takes a different approach to the Loops than most, especially the Anchors. Due to his Loops tend to be very close to his baseline, and yet he chooses to only deviate slightly if at all, it's startling that his mental state is as good as it is.
  • Celibate Hero: Averted, Cynder has stated that she and her mate have mated a number of times offscreen, also adding that it's a great stress relief.
  • The Comically Serious: Usually plays this roll to some of the shenanigans the loops pull on him, though that's not to say he doesn't have his moments.
  • Control Freak: A side effect of developing a slight case of Setsuna Syndrome during his early loops. Thankfully, after meeting his Classic counterpart, Legend has (mostly) developed out of this mindset.
  • Elemental Powers: In his baseline, Purple Dragons have the ability to use all four elements that other dragons do, as well as quite a few that none of them can.
    • Playing with Fire: What else did you expect a dragon protagonist to start out with?
    • Shock and Awe: The second power that Legends gained in the baseline.
    • Dishing Out Dirt: From stalagmites to actually throwing dirt around, Legends is indeed capable of controlling the earth.
    • An Ice Person: Rounding up his standard elements is ice, which is exactly what it sounds like it is.
    • Recently he also found that he could combine his elements. The combinations he has so far realized are:
      • Magma/Lava: A combination of Earth and Fire
      • Steam: Ice + Fire
      • Plasma: Fire + Electricity He has also found Plasma to be one of the Components of Time. Responsible for slowing time to a crawl.
      • Crystal: Earth + Ice It is the other component of time responsible for speeding it up. While he has used Crystal before, he does not know how to consciously call it.
    Time is a subset of Convexity, that Legend Spyro seems to be naturally inclined to.
  • Infinity +1 Sword:
    • Legend Spyro's 'Fury Armor'. It increases his natural abilities ten fold and gives him access to the Convexity element, but seriously drains his mana while using it.
    • Eventually gets an armor that combines the major perks of all three of his sets, without the major drawbacks. Legend prefers to only use it though when things a really desperate though, as to not become dependent on it's powers.
  • It Sucks to Be the Chosen One: Even though he's accepted his status as the purple dragon, he's made it a bit clear he would rather be a normal dragon. Not to mention the number of emotional and psychological problems he's had to deal with over the course of the loops thanks to his status as such.
  • Mirror Self: To Classic, naturally. While Classic is mischievous and loves to play around in the loops, Legend is more reserved and prefers to use the loops to improve his baseline.
  • Most Writers Are Writers: Eventually becomes a story writer as a hobby to help him calm down and stop taking the loops too seriously.
  • Not So Above It All: Legends Spyro usually doesn't like to get up to usual looper shenanigans, and tends to get annoyed when people in the loop start acting up, but there have been a few times that have showed his not above messing around in a loop either. He also appears to be something of a closet Humongous Mecha fan.
  • Old Soldier: Reliving a war almost every single Loop has worn on Legend, but he still keeps going. And of course like every Looper he is a Time Abyss.
  • Split-Personality Merge: With Dark Spyro, after he realized that Dark was the Anthropomorphic Personification of the emotions he chose to repressed because of the war. Thankfully, the only reason Dark was so violent was because he was sick of being repressed, so the only thing the merge does is make Legend more open to others, as well as slowly beginning to toss his stoic tendencies and original idea of the loops aside.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Has one thanks to certain events in his baseline. It only activates when something pushes him passed his breaking point, and he usually only focuses on what enraged him in the first place. That said, he's still highly dangerous in this form, and is often treated as an MLE until he regains control.
    • As it's revealed though, Dark Spyro isn't evil. Rather, he's the Anthropomorphic Personification of Legend's repressed emotions, and is only so violent because he's sick of being repressed. Once he and Legend finally merge back into one, his Dark form seems to be no more...
  • Time Stands Still: Dragon Time. Originally it was just a general slow down that even included Legends himself, and was mostly used so he could react to things quicker than he normally could. After spending several loops training with the Chronicler though, he's managed to upgrade it to this. Generally, it doesn't mess with the loops too much despite messing with the time flow less two dragons are using it at the same time, like when Classic Spyro managed to copy it with his command line. (Ihy had to forcefully drag them both out to keep the loop from crashing.)

    Star Trek 

The three distinct eras covered by the franchise leads to a three-Anchor linked structure. Until relatively recently, the identities of the Trek loopers was known only to themselves and the Admins. They are known to have looped since early loop time though, being around the same age as the Star Wars loopers.

All Trek Anchors and Loopers in general

  • Stealth Expert: Because of their training to heed the Prime Directive, as well as wishing to avoid the hassle of attempting to explain the loops to Starfleet Command, the Department of Temporal Investigations and similar bureaucracies, the Trek loopers have become highly skilled at not letting on that they are looping at all. This extends to fused loops where they can serve as "Stealth Anchors", allowing for near-baseline loops where the native anchor is unawake or absent altogether.

Johnathan Archer

Anchor for the 22nd Century ("Enterprise") era. Has not had much development. Picard doesn't feel very highly of him, and it's implied most of the other 24th century Loopers feel the same way.

  • The Ghost: He and his era haven't appeared at all.

James Tiberius Kirk

Anchor for the 23rd Century (TOS, TAS, numbered movies) era. Was recently discovered during a loop when he was incarnated as Princess Luna's pet opossum.

Jean-Luc Picard

Anchor for the 24th Century (TNG, DS9, Voy) era, and the Trek Anchor who appears the most. Unmasked by Chrysalis and Trixie of Equestria.

  • Berserk Button: His torture at the hands of the Cardassians. Chrysalis and Trixie take advantage of it to trick him into revealing himself.
  • The Comically Serious: Picard remains unflinching in the face of the insanity he has to experience over and over again.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Has a program installed in the Enterprise computers to erase any record of Looper antics he and his crew might witness. And sometimes even non-Looper bizarreness.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: His reaction whenever the Enterprise computer is replaced with a Looper, like GLaDOS or Ditzy. And just in general.

    Star Wars 
Due to its sheer length, the Star Wars Loops have multiple Anchors. The Star Wars loops have been around, at least in the Original and Prequel sections, since the earliest loops, being younger than the Comic loops but older than the Nanoha and Equestria verses.

Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader

Anchor for the prequel films section and the surrounding EU

  • Ace Pilot: Not only in canon, but further enhanced by the loops, and now with all sorts of robots such as Gundams, Evangelions and Gunman, among many others.
  • The Atoner: For his actions in the baseline. His actions to Padme in particular are among what he regrets the most.
  • Awesome Ego: In-universe. Darth Vader does not merely 'visit' a planet, he arrives in style. And by style......we mean with massive fleets.
  • Bad Boss: Shown to be working on not being this when stuck in Vader loops.
  • Base-Breaking Character: In Universe, he is a polarizing figure who is either liked, or despised and feared by the various loopers.
  • Berserk Button: A number of them, including but not limited to hurting those he cares about, MLE's, and Han Solo.
  • Better the Devil You Know: Apparently there are people that make Anakin prefer Han as Leia's husband, among them Kamina.
  • Black Comedy: Prone to this, including replacing Jango's Fett's DNA with Pinkie Pie's.
  • Butt-Monkey: The loops have an odd pleasure in causing Anakin's actions to backfire in amusing ways.
  • The Corruptible: His baseline behavior and its evolution in the loops means he is at risk for Sakura Syndrome. Thankfully he's aware of this. However, during the Яeverse The Loops storyline, he was able to resist the Яeverse's effects due to his past experience with darkness.
  • D-Cup Distress: Is rather buxom when looping in as a girl, which he dislikes.
  • Doom Magnet: He's a Sith Magnet, which usually brings death and destruction with it.
  • Doting Grandparent: Anakin's shown to be quite fond of Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo, and likely Ben Skywalker as well.
  • The Dreaded: For some Loopers, like Hiccup, meeting an un-Awake Anakin is preferable to meeting him Awake.
  • Evil Parents Want Good Kids: Anakin had never been shown to ever lead his children down a dark path as a looper, and takes pride that Luke and Leia are better morally than he is.
  • Heroic BSoD: Experiences one after being killed by Darth Jar-Jar. He spends most of that loop not doing anything.
  • Good Parents: Anakin has shown to be able to pull this off in variant loops. Of course, he still has his flaws. A snippet was dedicated to him working on being a better parent early in the loops.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die:
    • His greatest failure and his main drive to improve himself in the loops is the death of his wife Padme.
    • His first encounter with Kyubey and the witches that follow are also one, as it ended with him killing either Witch-Padme or Witch-Ahsoka, the exact former identity of the witch being unknown.
  • I Hate Past Me more so than just 'Mini-Me loops are annoying' like most loopers. For good reason, of course.
  • Large Ham: Has tendencies towards this. It gets him into trouble during a variant fused loop with Code Geass where being a large ham literally caused ham to form around you. He ended that snippet unconscious after getting knocked on the head by a ham.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: During a loop into the 2003 series, Anakin actually picks up on how different the animation and storyline are and realized that The Padme in that loop sounds sort of like Azula. It notably bothered him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He used to be, setting the Jedi on Sidious. When he realised this skirted Sakura Syndrome, he stopped.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Anakin doesn't like himself all that much, and often attacks his duplicates whenever he's Mikasa Glitched.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: While not quite the authoritarian he was in baseline, Anakin still seems to have a distrust for the Galactic Senate bar his wife and her friends (which is sort of understandable, considering their reputation...), and would prefer a benevolent despotism. He's shown admiration for the more benevolent side of the World Government and, if ending up in charge of the Galactic Empire, does not dissolve it. (Though it becomes far more benevolent, particularly on the slavery front.)
  • Running Gag: Laser vision is the bane of his existence. Even when he's sure he's fighting someone who doesn't have this ability, chances are, they will.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: His reaction to seeing a Sith Padme and Shmi (his mother); was to go fishing. On a remote planet. For the rest of the Loop. He also left the main scope of a loop once for peace and quiet after dealing with a variant loop where everyone communicated by song so that he wouldn't accidentally kill anyone.
  • Shipper on Deck: Is shown to ship Naruhina, as well as Fate and Nanoha and Korra/Asami.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Had this dynamic with Han until they bonded over annoyance of Billy's shenanigans.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Normally not prone to this, having little sympathy for evil beings, Anakin has admitted to having this viewpoint for witches who were the victims of Kyubey, seeing as their manipulation by him was similar to his own by the hands of Palpatine.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: A side effect of your son living longer than you baseline.
  • You Have Failed Me: Working on not solving all his problems with Force Choking.
  • Yuri Fan: Slight, and not to Innortal levels, but he's expressed himself as a shipper of Fate and Nanoha, approves of Korra and Asami dating, and admits to finding a child of Shegoand Kim to be quite potentially cute.

Luke Skywalker

Anchor for the original films and expanded universe material shortly before and after them.

Revan / Darth Revan

Anchor for the Old Republic era since The Crash. He doesn't tend to show up outside that era. Some consider him an elaborate hoax on the part of the Star Wars loopers.

  • Gender Bender: Loops often as Female Revan due to bugs, similar to those that plague Shepard.
  • The Ghost: Rarely loops outside of the Star Wars loops, and rarely appears physically in a Star Wars loop (though often mentioned). The first time he made an appearance, the loop was declared Canon Discontinuity due to Spock being far too snarky and using slang, and his intro loop is yet to be written.
  • Unperson: Several loopers do not believe he actually exists.

Rey Skywalker nee Palpatine

Anchor for the Sequel Trilogy and the expanded universe material relating too it.

  • Big "WHAT?!": Has this reaction when she realizes she is back in time
  • Didn't See That Coming: In-universe, this is the other loopers's reactions to her being the new anchor. They all thought it would be Ben/Kylo.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Rey notes that she is oddly unfazed with everything going on during her first loop.

     Steven Universe 

Steven Universe

A half-human, half-gem child, who lives with the allies of his deceased mother.

  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Has a chat like this with Roy Mustang on purpose after discovering his mother Rose Quartz was directly responsible for killing Pink Diamond.
  • Green Thumb: He gained the Mokuton (Wood Release) from a Naruto Fused Loop.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: He has apparently Looped in as his mother Rose Quartz several times, and admits that he did a lot of what she did, (including starting the Rebellion) in order to stop Homeworld from colonizing Earth.
  • There Are No Therapists: Averted. He's shown discussing his mother with a support group consisting of other Loopers with parental issues.
  • Super Strength: It's not shown how he did it, but in one of his loops he piled up every car in Beach City on top of each other.



Fate Testarossa

     Sly Cooper 

Carmelita Montoya Fox-Cooper

  • Happily Married: To Sly Cooper. Neither was aware of the significance at the time, since it occurred before their first Fused Loops.
  • Gravity Master: Becomes one due to a trip to the Gravity Rush loop.
  • Mage Marksman: In addition to the shock pistol she has thanks to the baseline, Carmelita's learned magic from a number of Loops, including Unicorn Magic, Potterverse Magic and Fire Emblem Magic.
  • The Lancer: Of the Cooper Gang while Awake.


The brains of the Cooper Gang, Bentley was the third Looper from the Sly Branch.


  • Big Eater: Worked to his detriment during a strange Fused Loop with Evangelion, where it resulted in him getting sent to Eiken.
  • An Ice Person: Courtesy of a Bionicle Fused Loop, he's gotten access to ice-based abilities.



  • Good Feels Good: Eventually admits this.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Really doesn't like cyborgs or non-organic life in general, due to the way she was brought into the Loops. This got her sent to Eiken when she once killed Skynet on reflex.




Knuckles the Echidna

Princess Sally

  • The Kid with the Leash: One of the few beings in the Loops capable of dressing down Amy Rose. Even Looping Amy Rose.
  • Super Mode: Once she accesses the Source of All.

Rooter "Boomer" Walrus

Antoine D'Coolette

  • Cowardly Lion: Much more heroic than his baseline.
  • Happily Married: With Bunnie

Bunnie Rabbot

Amy Rose

Slightly scary pink hedgehog, with a big hammer

  • The Atoner: Is trying to make up for her brush with Sakura Syndrome.
  • Berserk Button: Don't call her fat. Ever.
  • The Dreaded: For Sonic, Amy is one of the most terrifying beings alive. Plus, as a violent hammer-wielding female, even loopers like Ranma are cautious around her.
  • Stalker with a Crush: For Sonic, who thanks to the Loops knows what being married to her would be like, and avoids her.

Cream the Rabbit

Shadow The Hedgehog

The Ultimate Lifeform, who just happens to come in the form of a hedgehog

Big the Cat

Might be Looping, but since it's Big, no one in the Loops are actually sure yet.

Silver the Hedgehog

A Looper from the future. Due to the Loop's attitude towards time-travel, Silver only Awakens when he reaches the past, and stops if he goes back to his own time

Marine the Racoon

Blaze's talkative friend

Shade the Echidna

  • Composite Character: Sometimes winds up replacing Julie-Su, Knuckle's (former) girlfriend from the Archie comics. Sometimes she even has her name.

Vector the Crocodile

Espio the Chameleon

  • Stealth Expert: He is a ninja, after all. But in Loop, he's pretended not to be Awake as part of a game with Vector.

Charmy Bee

Mighty the Armadillo

Ray the Flying Squirrel

  • Big Damn Heroes: During the Mega Sonic Loop, he takes out Apocalypse Waltz from the inside.

DJ Octavio

    Spyro the Dragon (Dragon Realms) 


Legend Spyro's mate, she spent a good early portion of the loops experiencing a Heroic Blue Screen of Death thanks to the loop starting a few seconds before she gets Brain Washed And Crazy.

  • The Atoner: Even after figuring out how to escape her fate, she still feels terrible about what she did in the baseline.
  • Claustrophobia: As revealed, she's very much claustrophobic, not being able to spend a lot of time in small and dark spaces without starting to freak out. She believes that it's a result of her upbringing, and not being in control of her body for much of her early life.
  • Cool Big Sis: How Ember views her.
  • Heroic Blue Screen of Death: Thanks to having to repeat her actions as the 'Terror of the Skies' six times in a row. Thankfully, after figuring out how to escape being turned into that, she slowly got better the proceeding loops.
  • Lethal Chef: During her first fused loop with the classic verse, Cynder attempts to make chicken noodle soup in a microwave. The end result was the soup catching on fire and having to be tossed out a window. (Though, this may be more of a case of her being bad with technology in general.)
  • No Social Skills: Cynder, thanks to a combination of there being no other dragons around her age in her loop outside of Legends Spyro, and because of her upbringing. She tends to be rather blunt around others, as well as Brutally Honest. Unlike most examples of this trope though, she's well aware of this problem, and is trying to overcome it.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Like Legend Spyro, she also has this. Thankfully, it hasn't shown up yet in a loop.

Legend Sparx

Legend Spyro's adopted brother, Legend Sparx may be a bit of a coward, but he's a good guy deep down.

  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Lovable Coward: Though, he has gotten a bit more bold thanks to the loops making it technically impossible for people to die.
  • The Trickster: Out of the Legend characters, he's the one who tends to pull the most pranks.


The fire guardian and future Chronicler, Ignitus is Legend Spyro's main mentor, as well as a second father figure of sorts to him. Though he holds an air of dignity, he's not above looper shenanigans and pranks, especially when the other guardians start to wear his nerves thin a little.

  • Not So Above It All: Despite being arguably the most experienced and mentally oldest of the Spyro loopers, he's not above pranking his fellow guardians (usually Volteer and Cyril) when they start to wear on his nerves. According to him, the guardians use to do this long before the loops started up as a 'subtle' way of letting each other know they need to tone it down.

Classic Sparx

Classic Spyro's best friend, the two have been together since Spyro first hatched from his egg. Classic Sparx has the ability to block and null damage inflicted on people and seems to be bond to Classic Spyro in a familiar like relationship. As such, Classic Sparx serves as an unintentional co-anchor for the Classic verse.

  • Barrier Warrior: Tends to alternate between this and dulling damage. Dulling damage is less taxing on him, but if there's an attack that would do massive amount of pain that even he can't dull, he can null the damage out right at the cost of losing more energy than normal.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Though he's greatly annoyed by his counterpart because of this trait, Classic Sparx has proven to be just as snarky, if not even more so, than his counterpart.
  • Older Than They Look: Ember is rather surprised to find out that, thanks to in-loop dragonfly years, he's actually twenty two years old, despite being born around the same time Classic was.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: His general view of Legend Sparx.


Classic Spyro's number one Fangirl, Classic spent several of his early loops avoiding her. After Ember finally agrees to tone her fangirl tendencies down, the two have become pretty good friends.

  • Ambiguously Brown: She herself mentions how the loops can't make up their mind about what dragon species she is, and as a result, she isn't even sure what dragon species she was originally anymore. The most common one she loops in as seems to be Magic Crafter, so as a result she identifies herself as one because of that. Even then, usually she's a Magic Crafter hybrid with one of the other dragon species as well.
  • Fangirl: To Classic Spyro at first. She agrees to tone it down after Cynder points out that it's one of the main reasons Classic avoids her. The two have since become good friends... though, she still tends to have some minor fangirl tendencies.
  • Naïve Everygirl
  • Nice Girl: Her first decision with her new found foresight, instead of messing with non-loopers like most loopers do, was to help her village become the most peaceful place in the dragon realms. She even mentions how she doesn't like messing with people or pulling pranks. Of course, ever since she (mostly) got over her crush and became a more genuine friend to Classic Spyro, her opinion on more general looper shenanigans seems to be changing...
  • Teach Me How To Fight: After nearly being mugged during a fused loop and realizing the loops won't always be the safe norm she's use to, she asks this of Cynder, who reluctantly agrees despite never teaching someone before.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Besides being bright pink, she has a heart shaped necklace and her tail ends in a heart shape. Needless to say, this tends to get poked fun at endlessly by outside loopers. (Much to her distress.)

Classic Hunter

Classic Spyro's second best friend, Hunter is always down with any shenanigans that Classic cooks up. Thanks to his first loop with the Legends verse though, he's not exactly big on his Legend counterpart though.

  • Ace Pilot: Is good with pretty much any means of aerial transportation, be it planes, UFOs, Jet Packs, or even Wile E. Coyote acme wings.
  • Jet Pack: His favorite means of getting an edge in battles.
  • Multi-Ranged Master: Is good with bows, laser pistols, and pretty much any ranged weaponry he gets his hands on.
  • Official Couple: With Bianca.
  • Surfer Dude: Noticeably toned down in regards to canon, but he still has his moments, and his voice has been mentioned to be noticeably more gruff than his Legend counterpart.

The Professor

A genius mole from Avalar, the Professor often lives up to his 'name', as he often spends most of his looping time preforming experiments and inventing new gadgets for the loopers to try out. Nine times out of ten, the results are usually explosive...


A once rogue elder who feel victim of Brain Washed And Crazy, Red spends most of the loop in a situation not so different from Cynder's. Thankfully, it's nowhere near as sever a situation as her's was, and he's able to make the best of it he can.

  • The Mentor: About the only elder Classic Spyro remotely respects and is willing to learn magic from.
  • Parental Substitute: In addition to being the only Elder Classic respects, he's also become something of a father figure for him, considering Classic himself is Conveniently an Orphan.


Legend Spyro's teacher and guardian of the earth element, Terrador managed to take his looping situation in stride, showing the same stoic seriousness he has with most of the trials he has to overcome in baseline.

  • The Comically Serious: Comes with being even more stoic than Legend Spyro was initially.
  • Number Two: Usually takes the role of leader of the guardians whenever Ignitus is unawake or isn't in the current loop iteration for some reason.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Takes a lot of looping situations and scenarios in stride. Even having a drunken admin running his branch rarely phases him.


The Sorceress's former apprentice. Changed sides after realizing the true scope of her boss's plan.

    Star Trek 

Dr. Beverly Crusher


Geordi LaForge

Dr. Leonard McCoy

Miles Edward O'Brien

Will Riker

Montgomery Scott

Benjamin Lafayette Sisko

Emissary of the Prophets. The Sisko.


A Vulcan. He and Anakin do not get along.

Deanna Troi

Worf, Son of Mogh

    Star Wars 

Leia Organa / Skywalker / Solo

Hasn't forgiven Anakin for Aldeeran yet, Leia alternates between disliking her father and being annoyed with him rather often. She might actually start to like him one day....

  • Character Alignment: Lawful Good. Believes heavily in fair democracy, despite its flaws in the baseline. This can flare up when she deals with people with different alignments, like Umbridge, leading to some pretty badass and snarky lines.
    It's called free speech, Professor Dolores? Perhaps you've heard of it. It's the right of all men and woman to speak out when they feel the government is wrong without fear of censor or punishment.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: She already loves Han, but getting back at Anakin's a plus in the Loops.
  • Death Glare: Her default reaction to seeing Anakin.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Leia took out the 'God' of The Prayer Warriors with a single force blow.
  • Generation Xerox: Resembles Padme, acts like Anakin.
  • I Have Many Names: Depending on the loop and the point in the timeline, she'll identify herself differently, particularly her Organa and Skywalker identity.
  • Most Common Superpower: Pointed out to be rather buxom, at least compared to her mother. Loops with Anakin as female suggests she gets it from him.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Responsible for herself, Vader and Tarkin being trapped in the Star Wars version of the Great Elevator Saga.
  • Not So Different: To Anakin. Telling her this is not advised.

Han Solo

The son in law Anakin despises.



An Astromech droid. R2 was the first non anchor looper to begin looping in the Star Wars verse.


(To a rather grouchy Chrysalis) "I note by your demeanor that you are experiencing unpleasant feelings, but do not worry! It will be my pleasure to assist you in any way to make your evening more enjoyable, by serving you drinks, by listening to your troubles, and by providing sage advice, comfort, and even the occasional bit of witty banter! Would you like to begin by describing in detail the causes of your current negative mood, perhaps over a delightful glass of Altair water?""

Lando Calrissian

  • Master of Unlocking: Has access to a Skeleton Key from Skyrim that also works with safes and electronic locks.
  • Out of Focus: Has few if any roles in the loops.

Wedge Antilles

  • Ace Pilot: Already was one before he started Looping. Add an eternity with which to practice that craft...
  • Beast Master: A skilled Chocobo Rider.
  • To Be a Master: His goal is to be the greatest pilot in the Multiverse.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

  • The Atoner: Regrets his failure to save Anakin in the baseline. Though the problem is that he's not sure what exactly did he do wrong, was he too strict or too lenient?
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Death Glare: Spent an entire Loop glaring at Anakin after being killed by a Sith Padme and Shmi.
  • Eye Beams: And they are are powerful enough to send Vader through a wall. Much to the latter's annoyance.
  • Laughing Mad: Was this for one loop when lightsabers were replaced with baguettes.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Averted, as he doesn't notice how different the 2003 Clone Wars based variant loop is art wise like Anakin does.
  • My Death Is Only The Beginning: Obi-Wan can spend loops as a Force Ghost, however he cannot do much in this state. He apparently only likes this if he can troll Anakin during it.

Mara-Jade Skywalker

Luke's wife, and the in-law Anakin doesn't despise, despite a baseline dislike of her that was still present at the start of the loops.

  • Big Eater: A slight running gag, though with reasons behind it. The first time this was seen was due to pregnancy cravings for ham, the second being during a loop where she hadn't eaten for days due to being a street urchin.
  • Ret-Gone: The unexplained/inconsistent parts of her past in canon are lost to the loops. She doesn't let it bother her though.

Ashoka Tano

  • A-Cup Angst: Subtle, but some of her interactions with Nico Robin and later commentary on Mami Tomoe suggest this.
  • Like a Son to Me: To Anakin when not suffering from Sakura Syndrome.
  • Friend to All Children: Ahsoka continues to aide the younglings in their arc of the Clone Wars story because of this, and because they are relaxing to her and help her avoid relapsing.
  • Fangirl: Mentions during a Toonami loop that she was playing Pokemon games before their loop even showed up, and in particular mentioned fondness for the Charmander family.
  • Reality Ensues: Apparently being a red skinned, horned humanoid gets you mistaken for a demon a lot in worlds where aliens aren't common knowledge.
  • Sanity Slippage: Had a nasty case of Sakura Syndrome at one point. She eventually shook it off and is not known to relapse back into it, unlike the syndrome's namer.
  • Token Nonhuman: For a long time the only non human or droid Prequel Era looper, until Bariss returns in the near future and Jar Jar starts looping.

Bariss Offee

A version of Bariss who wasn't driven to the Dark Side by the Clone Wars, but was made aware of what happened when she nearly got killed for it. Her coding is on the fritz, meaning she usually ends up too far from the action to be of any help.


Companion of Revan, homicidal robot.

Kyle Katarn

Badass Jedi of Luke's Jedi Order.

  • Chekhov's Gunman: Was first mentioned by Anakin in Chapter 3, but properly appeared in Chapter 14.
  • Unexpected Character: A meta example: the character was not intended to be set up as a looper when first mentioned.


Looping, the Jedi Master is.

  • Fighting Spirit: Possesses an unnamed Stand. Rather oddly, as the Star Wars writer himself had long standing issues with the Joestar Writer.
  • Not So Above It All:
  • Remember the New Guy?: Revealed to have been a looper since Chapter 1 of the Star Wars loops, in the 15th chapter.
  • You Never Asked: Has been looping since at least INNORTAL times, but never made it known because no one asked him until Obi-Wan.

Jar Jar Binks

Yes, he's looping. Sith Jar Jar/Darth Charybdis is not him. Sadly.

  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appears in several loops early, despite being canonically not looping yet (Word of God puts his looping period after Padme Amidala starts looping)

Padme Amidala

The wife of Anakin Skywalker and mother of Luke and Leia. Token Good Teammate to the Galactic Senate at large.

  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in several loops while her intro loop is still being planned.
  • Morality Chain: Even when not looping she still functions as this for Anakin.

Count Dooku

Sith Lord and The Dragon to Sidious in baseline. Begins looping shortly before Padme does.

  • The Starscream: Has thoughts along this line shortly after waking up for the first time. Given who his boss was, we can see why.
  • Unexpected Character: Who'd have thought he'd ever loop?!

Mace Windu

Stern Jedi. Noticeably dislikes Anakin more than the others.

  • Not So Above It All:
    • He managed to break the "No attachments" rule in his first Fused Loop by growing attached to his partner: Lordknightmon.
    • He joined the other loopers in teaching Rey the "rules"
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Has this reaction when Padme reveals Luke and Leia's existence to him.
    Mace: Great, more reckless Skywalkers...

    Steven Universe 

Connie Maheswaren:

Steven's closest human friend, and the first person to start Looping after Steven in their world.


The longest-standing member of the Crystal Gems besides Steven's deceased mother, and a former member of a Servant Race on the Gem Homeworld who fled.

  • Fantastic Racism: Used to have a downplayed version of this towards humanity. After one of her early loops, where she looped in as a human herself, she grew out of it.
  • Space Master: Gained the powers of Palkia from a Fused Loop.

Garnet/Ruby and Sapphire.

Garnet is the result of the Fusion Dance between the Gems Ruby and Sapphire, who enjoy being Garnet so much they decided to stay that way (the two are Soulbound Loopers).


A purple Gem who was created on Earth, and the youngest of the Crystal Gems.

  • Cooldown Hug: Managed to calm down Lapis Lazuli during her Freak Out.
  • It Amused Me: She was already this in canon, but this seems to be how she spends her free time during the Loops.
  • Super Speed: Apparently spent a Loop as Sonic at one point.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: While she was already this in canon, she seems to have become even better over time, and has apparently Looped as a Ditto previously.

Lapis Lazuli

A Gem with Physical God level water manipulation powers, who Steven freed from a mirror the Crystal Gems had in their possession (it's still unclear if the Gems knew she was trapped in there or not).

  • Freak Out: In her first Loop, when she was freed, she had one after Amethyst explained the Loops to her. She calmed down later, though.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: According to Amethyst, Yggdrasil had yet to settle on who had put her in the mirror when she started Looping.
  • Put on a Bus: Once had to leave her native Loop due to coding issues with Malachite. It was relatively brief, though.

Greg Universe

Steven's father, and the former husband of Rose Quartz.

  • Spanner in the Works: He started looping due to a complication in the system.
  • Super Strength: He got a werebear transformation that gives him enough strength to throw around cars like they're pebbles.


Steven's pet lion, who is believed to have some connection to his mother Rose Quartz, and also bright pink. Stated by Word of God to be a Stealth Looper.

  • The Voiceless: The only reason that Steven realized he was a Looper was because he used the Pokémon move Flamethrower.


A Gem technician who used to work under Yellow Diamond, and started Looping after she insulted her boss by accident.

  • Noodle Incident: Managed to singlehandedly deal with the Cluster in one Loop, and listed several of these when she said how she did it.


How well does it match the trope?
