Main Characters

    John Triton 
Played By: John Cena

    Joe Linwood 
Played By: Ted DiBiase Jr.

    Jake Carter 
Played By: Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin

    Luke Trapper 
Played By: Shawn Michaels

  • The Big Guy: Displays most if not all of the traits one of these typically possesses, even at one time charging into a wall to break out of a locked room. Funnily enough Luke and Jake are around the same size.
  • It's Personal: Rescuing Sarah becomes this for Luke after Maddy Hayes killed his friend Jake.
  • The Lancer: To Jake in Close Quarters, though the reverse was true during their time in Afghanistan. He is promoted to main protagonist for the rest of the movie after Jake is killed by Maddy and her mooks.
  • Mr. Exposition: Within minutes of his introduction, Luke explains that he was once Jake's commanding officer and mentor — and he explains this to Jake himself, as though he didn't already know who he was.
  • Old Soldier: Luke is a grizzled old veteran who did several tours in Afghanistan, and he is pretty quick to tell old war stories.


Main Antagonists

Played By: Robert Patrick

    Jonah Pope 
Played By: Neal McDonough

  • Bomb-Throwing Anarchists: He is basically this when it comes down to it.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Pope became a terrorist when his family went bankrupt and then lost their house. Then his father was driven to suicide. Then his sister was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Yeah, life hasn't been kind to poor Pope.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Pope allows himself to be killed in the climax, knowing that the car bomb he's planted cannot be defused.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Pope claims that his motivation is centered on battling the 'disease' of greed and reclaiming personal responsibility.
    Pope: "Greed, people. It's a disease that is eating away at our nation from the top down. Personal responsibility. That's what builds a nation. No more, no less."
  • You Look Familiar: Viewers of the Arrowverse series of shows may know Mister Pope as Damien Dahrk.
Played By: Bo Dallas

The main antagonist for The Marine 5: Battleground, a psychotic member of a biker gang whose men chase down one of the men who killed his boss in a drive-by shooting.

    Maddy Hayes 
Played By: Becky Lynch

The main antagonist for The Marine 6: Close Quarters, the daughter of an Irish mob boss who is on trial for a series of vicious crimes. She kidnaps a juror's daughter in order to force him to declare a mistrial via hung jury, so that her father can be freed from custody.

  • Bad Boss: Kills a couple of mooks for letting Jake, Luke and Sarah escape twice.
  • Dark Action Girl: Not afraid to tussle with two veteran marines.
  • Evil Redhead: Natch — she is the main antagonist for Close Quarters, and she is played by the very orange-haired Becky Lynch.
  • Kick the Dog: Cracks a joke at Jake's expense after she killed him to Luke before the final fight.
  • Knife Nut: She does all of her kills with a knife, including when she killed Jake.
  • Oireland: She is the daughter of an Irish mob boss, and she is also played by the Irish Becky Lynch.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: She manages to succeed in freeing her father thanks to a hung jury, and she also manages to kill Jake as well. It is short-lived, however, as Luke kills her not long after, and her father is brought up on new charges anyway.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Busts out a hurricanrana while fighting Luke during the final fight. It also helps that she is played by, y'know, a wrestler.

How well does it match the trope?
