Characters / The Infinite Loops Non Loopers

Go To

Important characters in the Infinite Loops, who might be Loop Aware, but are not yet Looping themselves.



Loop-aware effectively omnipotent super-being, and pain in the behind for all Trek Loopers. Usually involved in some sort of game with Discord when he shows up.

Dr. Albert Wily

Mad scientist, and the arch-nemesis of Rock and Roll Light, the Big Bad of the Mega Man Loops. Though he may not be looping, events proven that he can be just as dangerous as an MLE. Also has the Dreaming Glitch, where he remembers things from the Loops. Unfortunately, this usually just makes him worse.

  • Badass Normal: He's proven to be quite a dangerous threat in the loops, even when he's not Dreaming, and has managed to pull off quite a few feats even some loopers have problems with. For example, near-singlehandedly taking on the Conversion Bureau Equestria.
    Mega Man: "Misfortune, treachery, and Dr. Wily can circumvent any safeguards."
  • Better the Devil You Know: Apparently Loops without him are far worse than ones with him.
  • Demonic Possession: Spent the first Mega Man Loop possessed by a virus, which fuelled his tenacious desire to near-disastrously bad levels. Luckily it was quarantined thanks to Hermes and Hephaestus.
    • It's implied that the virus is the same as an entity that was generated by the many, many failed Loops the Megaverse went through, which also resulted in a case of this for Wily. It also caused a fusion dance between him, Sigma, Weil, and Dr. Albert. The resulting creation went on to cause the Crash.
  • Depending On the Loop: Wily will either be a mad scientist who wants recognition and doesn't care what he has to do get it, but still willing to help Rock, Roll and Blues should the situation really call for it, or at his worst, a man who'd burn the whole world to the ground out of sheer spite, causing damage that spreads across centuries. Rock and Roll have had to deal with the later sometimes.

  • Determinator: Wily refuses to go down easily. It nearly backfired and got his entire universe erased from existence in one case.
  • Villainous Friendship: He and Doctor Eggman still have this.

The Son

The embodiment of the Dark Side. Is responsible for killing the Bariss which began her looping. Very Dangerous.

Dolores Umbridge

The Minister of Magic's Senior Undersecretary, 5th Year D.A.D.A teacher, Hogwarts High Inquisitor and generally disliked 'human' being, she is said to be one of the most disliked non loopers in the multiverse, in part because of how many loopers loop into Hogwarts for fused loops and encounter her.

  • 0% Approval Rating: Nobody in the multiverse actually likes her. It should say a lot that during the Crisis, Harry's first instinct was to kill her over someone like Voldemort.
  • Asshole Victim: Happens a lot. For example, one loop she tried to use the Blood Quill against Pinkie Pie. Pinkie used chaos magic to move the damage the quill did to her hand elsewhere, and the location chosen was in Umbridge's brain. She ended up as a vegetable, sharing a ward with the people who tried to read Pinkie's mind.

  • Baleful Polymorph: An encounter with the Doctor ended with her being turned into a kitten, and handed over to Fred and George Weasley.
  • Hate Sink: Looping has not helped this. The woman has garnered the loathing of everyone from Satsuki to Phineas and Ferb.
    (Darth Vader) I find your... no, I just find you disturbing, Dolores Umbridge. Leave.
  • Jerkass: No matter who she's up against, she's a very unpleasant person.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: During several of the loops she appears in, what she puts loopers in detention for are based on their personalities. You can certainly argue that you should punish Eren Yaeger for calling for murdering pureblood supremacists or Gray Fullbuster to stop stripping, or Naoki Kashima for threatening to raze the Ministry of Magic to the ground. Of course, Blood Quills are not the way to go, and she just as often goes after benevolent or harmless traits as well.
  • Running Gag: Several loops have been of Loopers trolling her attempts to punish them.

That Dalek

A Dalek that inevitably shows up during the War of the Medusa Cascade, and shoots the Doctor. It's not always the same Dalek, though.

  • You Can't Fight Fate: No matter where the Doctor goes, a Dalek is waiting for him, and it will shoot him. Events seem to conspire against the Doctor in this matter. Even if he takes precautions, it fails. And Jack Harkness always arrives just a second too late.
    • Taken even further in a Loop where Daleks don't even exist. The Doctor still gets fatally zapped, by a pony.

Chancellor/Emperor Palpatine /Darth Sidious

The Sith Lord running the Galactic Republic/Empire in the Prequel and Original branches of the Star Wars loops. A pain in the collective backsides of every Star Wars looper, bar maybe Revan.

Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Chiss Warlord and a master of gambits that even Batman or Xanatos might be humbled by. Non looping foe of Luke Skywalker.

  • The Dreaded: Luke fears this guy as a looper more so than Palpatine. And for good reason, as he gets far less flak as a potential loopers than Palpatine does.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Managed to defeat an awake Darth Vader in a civil war and restrain him to a magnet before the snip in question even began.

Grand Moff Tarkin

Imperial official and the one who blows up Alderaan. Generally messed with by loopers.

Kid Miracleman

Former sidekick of the hero Miracleman turned psychotic super-powered murderer. While his universe does not have any Loopers, a few actually run into him.

  • Deconstruction: To the Invincible Hero archetype and Kid Sidekick. Due to being a sidekick, Kid always had some animosity towards his mentors which grew and festered over the years. When Miracleman and Young Miracleman supposedly died while he stayed alive, Kid grew up in his super-powered body. Due to being the strongest being in the world with no one as strong as him telling him what to do, Kid became increasingly detached with his humanity to the point where he enjoys slaughtering hundreds of humans thanks to seeing them as his lessers. Edward does note that its possible that if all the Loopers didn't retain their humanity by having each other, then they could have ended up just like Kid.
  • The Dreaded: Can easily match blows and even beat newer Loopers, as Ed and Al learned. And if he's not beaten, he can go on a massive rampage that shows he's the Fridge Horror of a super villain incarnate.
  • Shadow Archetype: To the Loopers, thanks to his descent into madness from being so incredibly strong that he stopped caring for humanity.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Noted by Edward that how he was as a child is a stark contrast to how he is now. Even Johnny Bates, his human alter-ego, is shocked and horrified with what Kid has done.


The Big Bad of The Legend of Spyro, Malefor is quite a pain for the Spyro loopers, as having lived for hundreds of years in his own right, and spending most of those years attempting to destroy the world he lives in, he possess a wide range of skills and power that rival most early to mid loopers in strength.
  • The Dreaded: To the Spyro loopers. Legend himself mentioned that among the challenges he and Cynder face in baseline, Malefor is the only one who still manages to consistently give them problems, especially if they attempt to fight him earlier than in baseline.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Frequently, when faced with a looper who out classes him in sheer raw power. He was driven to tears when it finally hit him how insignificant he was next to Goku, and even the slightest sign that things may go south is enough to put him on edge.


Hi, guys! Yeah, I'm in the Loops, too, but since I'm awesome, that's only to be expected. Unlike most of the people in the Loops I'm actually allowed to break the fourth wall! Since I'm just so damn amazing all my tropes would take up this entire page, I'm only allowed to list tropes that happened to me in loops canon. For all of you wanting to see the many, many tropes, check out my absolutely glorious TV Tropes page!

  • Ambiguous Situation: Absolutely no one can tell if I'm actually a looper or just being my insanely awesome self. The only reason I'm listed in this folder is because people got tired of debating that fact. I'd set the records straight if I am or not, but then this trope would be removed from this list, and then I'd have less tropes listing me than I already have! Stupid "no listing general character tropes that aren't loops related" rule!
  • Crazy Awesome: Natch. Nobody's sure what I am (other than awesome, of course), since I can remember past Loops - even ones I haven't been in - but I'm not Looping; I know the Loops exist, but I'm not technically Loop Aware.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Like I said, I'm the only one allowed to do so. Yeah, Loopers know they're stuff is back-ups in other universes as fiction, but I'm the only one who actually knows that the Loops themselves are fiction. Don't tell anyone, okay?

The Trix

The original Big Bads of Winx Club.

  • Ambition Is Evil: Their motivation before going mad due the Dragonfire is to prove themselves superior to the Three Ancestors.
  • Badass Decay: They had been reduced to the local Butt Monkeys until their first Character Check.
  • Butt-Monkey: When not friendly they tend to suffer from the Winx pranks.
  • Character Check: Once in a while something happens to remember why they were the original Big Bads of Winx Club.
  • The Dreaded: The ideas of them taking thieving lessons from Carmen Sandiego or becoming Sparks terrify anyone who knows them, including Kyubey.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Aside them respecting contracts whenever they're hired for something, they don't tolerate taking and selling candid pictures or Big Sisters Bullies.
    • Darcy and Stormy are implied to have better standards than Icy, as they were surprised when their sister spontaneously decided that kidnapping Flora's sister to blackmail her was too low.
  • Foe Yay: Friendly!Darcy has this kind of relationship with the Awake Musa.
  • Friendly Enemies: Surprisingly friendly whenever the Winx get them to concentrate on something else other than the Dragonfire.
  • Impossible Thief: Aside for Lupin III and likely Carmen Sandiego, they're the only ones who can steal the Dragonfire. Considering their lack of ethics, the chance of them taking lessons from Carmen Sandiego has terrified even Kyubey.
  • Mad Scientists: Not really insane, but they have a habit of making various scientific experiments, and have a severe lack of ethics.
  • Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: Their experiments that don't involve stealing the Dragonfire have the tendency to destroy the world or at least cause heavy damage. As they only happen in the Loops where they're friendly, the Winx are wary to enact them.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: When they're not crazy, they're dangerous enough to casually take down the much more powerful Valtor if he does so much as standing still for more than two seconds.
  • Pragmatic Villains
  • Properly Paranoid: They are actually safety conscious in their experiments... It's just that they go awry in ways they don't anticipate. That, and minor witch Rachel tends to sabotage their safeties.
  • Sanity Has Advantages: They are at their most dangerous when sane, as the greater raw power they sometimes get after going crazy does not compensate for the focus and teamwork they have when they're sane.
  • There Are No Therapists: Darcy is the only decent therapist on Magix.
  • Villain Respect: They respect power and cunning above anything else, and will quickly respect a fairy who shows these.


Offshoot of a shoggoth from the My Maid is a Formless Entity light novel series. Lives in Littlefoot's Subspace Pocket and helps him keep it clean. Also works at the Mobius Hotel when she can.

  • Adorable Abomination: In her human form.
  • Blob Monster: Her natural form, which can drive people mad with long enough exposure. Luckily, she prefers human form most of the time.
  • Eldritch Abomination: She's a shoggoth. Who, for some reason, likes being a maid.
  • From a Single Cell: Her regenerative powers mean she can survive anything, up to and including being totally disintegrated.
  • Interspecies Friendship: With Littlefoot, since he's a Longneck (Apatosaurus) and she's… well, a shoggoth.
  • Hollywood Acid: She can dissolve enemies on contact.
  • Ninja Maid: Being a shoggoth, she's also incredibly good at fighting. Especially when it comes to defending her master.
  • Self-Duplication: Essentially how this Tekeli came into being. Since the original Tekeli couldn't Loop (and her native Loop was in fact made Read-Only afterward), she created a backup copy of herself that now travels with Littlefoot via his Subspace Pocket.
  • Shapeshifter: Part of being a shoggoth. She usually appears as human, but can shift around into anything; this is usually seen when she shifts her arms into tentacles.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Littlefoot.

Rose Quartz

The mother of Steven Universe, who anchors the Loop named after him. Not a Looper herself, but is Dreaming due to her gemstone being attached to Steven's body.

Madoka Kaname (Non-Admin)

The Mitakihara Branch requires Madoka Kaname to be present within the Loop itself. This cannot happen every Loop due to Madoka having Ascended. As such, upon the Branch's restoration, this instance of Madoka was created by Yggdrasil to fill the gap. Because of the reasons for her creation, this Madoka (usually known as In-Loop Madoka) isn't recognised by Yggdrasil as even having the capacity for Looping. This has essentially set her up as a Permanent Non-Looper.

  • Non-Player Character: This is pretty much her role within the Mitakihara Branch. She just happens to be an important one.

How well does it match the trope?
