Characters from the roleplay. Please add your own player character.
Debuted season 1
The first character to appear in the show. Debuted on page 1.
- Casual Danger Dialogue: Does this a lot, as he doesn't tend to grasp the seriousness of a situation unless Aveyond is harmed.
- Cuckoosnarker: He alternates between reacting to other people's insanity and being insane himself.
- CynicIdealist Duo: Tends to see the best in people, even enemies, contrasting with the more world-weary Taco as the cynic.
- The Ditz: Very prone to comic misunderstandings, such as somehow confusing Movie Reference's uncle dying with Beverly dying, and then asking the latter why she pretended to be dead.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: He and Taco Badger tend to pair off on wacky misadventures more than the other tropers, particularly in seasons 3 and 4.
- Kindhearted Simpleton: Very ditzy, but also a friend to anyone who's willing to be.
- Official Couple: With Aveyond, as of "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor".
- OOC Is Serious Business: He's almost always silly and harmless, and very few things faze him. One thing that does is hurting Aveyond, as Neil and Victor have found out.
- Snark Ball: Is full of asides and comments when it's not plot-relevant, but half the plot points involve him misunderstanding something.
- Unfazed Everyman: Most of his friends are magical or sci-fi in some way. It doesn't bother him at all.
- Most Writers Are Writers: He's supposedly in charge of writing the show's scripts, not that anyone ever uses them.
Taco Cornelius Badger, mostly referred to as 'Taco'. The third character to appear. Debuted on Page 1.
- Anti-Hero: Generally an impulse-driven cheat, as well as one of the main characters.
- Baleful Polymorph: Has occasionally turned himself into a mouse, originally to spite the Tropers' cat, Possibly Quite Insane.
- The Bus Came Back: After disappearing for half of season 2, and the better half of season 3, Taco returns, revealing that he was hiding in Tropes Bag of Holding as a mouse.
- Con Man: Has cheated his friends, his enemies, and strangers on several occasions.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He may be an ass and a con man, with a flagrant disregard of fellow human beings, even including fellow Tropers, but when it comes to Tropes, Puma, Gangrenous F, Melody, and even somewhat Tamatoa, he shows quite a bit of care and concern. Examples of this not oft-seen side of him, include shouting for Chey to do something when Melody was chased by a monster, dissuading the Tropers from killing Gangrenous F in an attempt to bring back the Status Quo, offering Tamatoa an escape from prison, and even jumping in front of Tropes to save him from being shot.
- Jerkass: Taco is an alcoholic con man, staunchly anti-progress, and has exemplified a history of hypocrisy and irascibility, not to mention an lust for violence, which he has taken out on fellow Tropers before, all while showing a clear disinterest in the more scientifically inclined tropers.
- Talking Animal: While he is a mouse, he talks.
- Team Pet: Having been mouse for so long, he is essentially relegated to this role.
- The Alcoholic: Drinks alcohol much more than the other tropers.
- The Hedonist: Taco is an alcoholic, a chainsmoker, and possibly a drug addict.
- Butt-Monkey: Is often the target of slapstick, either from his own schemes backfiring or from Taco.
- Hot-Blooded: Tends to be very hammy at times, especially when arguing with Taco.
- Gun Nut: Carries bazookas around a lot, such as in the pilot episode.
- Mad Scientist: He often falls into this role, e.g. in the Season Five premiere where he accidentally brings a bunch of fictional characters to life.
- Official Couple: Got together with Tsunku over the course of season 3, eventually marrying her.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Taco certainly don't get along too well, but they do spend a lot of time together.
- Alas, Poor Villain: A recurring trait. Puma frequently feels sorry for the villains when they die, even if they were trying to kill him. The one exception is Victor. All the tropers hate Victor.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Puma is one of the more out-there tropers. He makes tons of references, is constantly fluctuating between cheerful and vaguely-sinister, acts kind of ditzy compared to most of the other tropers, and thinks that stop motion is real.
- Non-Ironic Clown: In his earlier appearances, he worked as a birthday party clown, and seemed to genuinely enjoy being an entertainer. He did try to assist the others with their bank robbery plan in one episode, but only because he was afraid to let them down. As of Season 4, he is also helping Henderson run his circus, and occasionally joins the clown act at the circus. It's worth noting that he never shows his Creepy Good side while being a clown, he is actually cheerful and friendly.
- Our Werebeasts Are Different: At some point in his long absence from the series, he was exploring ancient ruins when he was hit with a werecat curse. It took Puma a while to get used to itnote , but after that, he began using the curse and/or potions to transform whenever the tropers are in a fight. His werecat form also has different variations (small, huge, etc.) Later on, he started transforming into different animals, including a wereshark and weredog.
- Rule of Funny: When he acts incompetent, he usually does it because he thinks it will be funny. He is a little more capable in serious situations.
- Running Gag: Whenever he sees Tropes, or Tropes greets him, in the middle of something, Puma always stops what he's doing to cheerfully say "hi" back. Even when he's in the middle of a perilous situation.
- That Reminds Me of a Song: Parodied. He frequently starts singing songs from other works (mainly Disney movies) to fit whatever situation he's in.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Milkshakes. He orders or asks for one whenever he can.
- Asskicking Equals Authority: Lampshaded by Convoy as a reason why he ranked up so quickly.
- Four-Star Badass: Holds the rank of Lieutenant Commander, and is one hell of a fighter.
- Only Sane Man: He has more sense than most of those around him and keeps them somewhat in check, but also has his own blind spots.
- Put on a Bus: Disappeared during Season 2, and came back around Season 4, therefore missing the entire Tropers Race season.
Debuted season 2
- Blood Knight: Enjoys fighting when she gets the chance, and sometimes even gets disappointed when she doesn't get to fight someone.

- Cosplay Otaku Girl: She has cosplayed as various characters throughout the series, including CATS, Kazuma Kiryu and Akira.

- Intentional Engrish for Funny: When being in a play, she machine translated all of her character's lines for amusing results.

- Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Chey tends to use 'smeg' often in place of normal swear words.

- Human Aliens: Chey is a Time Lady, so she appears human but is actually from Gallifrey.
- Official Couple: After a long Ship Tease, she and Ford Prefect got together in the Season 3 finale.
- Overly Long Name: Chey's real name is Cheyannendevoroseleneadora.

- Omniscient Council of Vagueness: the Time Council, his employers. No relation to Time Lords or Ladies, but other confirmed workers (and Canon Foreigners) are Trunks Briefs, Marty McFly, and Rick Sanchez.
- Inexplicably Awesome: Comes out of nowhere with the ability to lay the smackdown on anyone who opposes the Tropers, with little-to-no backstory; Even after the backstory, we don't get much info on him, and yet the only enemy who was legitimately stronger was Tomatoa with the power of the Status Quo. Also regularly does over-the-top things and calls upon allies who seem to be just as awesome.
- The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: For being a supposedly important member of a Time Council, he sure hangs around the Tropers a lot... Later Justified in Season 4 as he has gotten phone calls that vaguely forewarn him about the plot, and that if the villain wins the timeline could be changed. We later see him actually work, and it's just as awesome as it seems.
- Shipper on Deck: He is usually the main one trying to get couples together. He has a tendency to weaponize this for monetary gain by way of bets both on and offscreen. He served this for Chey and Ford in Season 3, and then Tropes and Aveyond in Season 5.
- Cuteness Proximity: Part of his reason for adopting Sir Fluff is that he's an adorable little kitten.
Debuted season 4
- Adorkable: She is passionate about many things, including books and fashion, and is certainly this when she talks about them.
- Angst: Goes through anxiety from prior abusive relationship.
- Badass Bookworm: She harvests a power that can allow her to transport herself into a story and take items. Unless it affects the storyline, of course. If you couldn't tell, she loves reading.
- Damsel out of Distress: Unless she cannot handle the situation (anything to do with her ex), Aveyond will most certainly try to save herself and others. She's gotten this ability after getting out of her previous relationship.
- Defiant Captive: Even though she tries to be brave and talk to the villain, if you push her over the edge she will break. She will try to fight back, but is weak with her body.
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Less overtly sexy (to anyone other than Tropes as least), but she's French and one of the more romantic characters.
- Official Couple: With Tropes as of Season 5, Episode 8: I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor. With inclusion of The Big Damn Kiss on Aveyond's hospital bed.
- Insecure Love Interest: With previous events in her life, she does not feel worthy of Tropes time.
- Gamer Chick: Loves playing computer games and is an expert at them.
- Ocean Madness: Telling Steph about the ocean, or CthulhuMythos will result in this for everyone else- this is often due to indirectly causing everyone else to Go Mad from the Revelation.
- Running Gag: Her noisy stomach sounds like thunder and lightning whenever it's hungry.
- Alternate Self: Sometime during the events of season 5, she discovered she was actually one of these to her "sister", Caitlin.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She's a fairly kindhearted person, but has threatened to stab people with icicles when angered. On multiple occasions.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Shows shades of this, such as when she mistakes Bob for the Phantom of the Opera or claims that Romeo and Juliet isn't overrated because "Without it, we wouldn't have West Side Story!"
- Forgetful Jones: Shows signs of this, like forgetting that someone was killed off a few minutes ago.
- Genre Motif: Judging by her taste in music, which includes "Defying Gravity", "Prima Donna" and "We Go Together", it appears to be showtunes.
- Happily Adopted: Judging by how fondly she speaks of Caitlin, it's clear that she feels this way.
- An Ice Person: In "The Shawshank Redumbption" she revealed she has these powers, and is able to fire blasts of ice or cold air from her hands. She's been known to use it for some pretty everyday stuff, though...
- Mundane Utility: She uses her ice powers to create snow cones and ice cream, and to ice skate outside of a rink.
- Nice Girl: Shows herself to be deeply empathetic and caring.
- Odd Friendship: She's apparently friends with Remus Lupin...who is more than a decade older than her and is a werewolf.
- Our Werebeasts Are Different: She became a were-snow-leopard in season 6. It's implied that it's difficult for her to use her powers in this form due to her not really having "hands" in the traditional sense; however, she retains her human mind and speech capabilities, though her voice is implied to be a bit more growly when transformed.
Debuted season 5
- Comedic Sociopathy: Partially one of the reasons why she's so potentially destructive. The other Tropers would have to keep her at bay just to make sure that she doesn't cause chaos.
- Drives Like Crazy: One would wonder how she was even allowed to have a car in the first place. If she's in a hurry, she won't hesitate to go offroad and drive like she's Colin Mcrae.
- Hyperspace Arsenal: Could use her portals as a way to store her inventory, which includes heat-seeking rocket pods, and a sledgehammer
- Kryptonite Factor: Unfortunately, due to the advanced nature of her portals, it would be unavailable if she tried to time travel to the past, or if she traveled to an inner dimension of the past. She learnt this the hard way in Episode 4.
- Opportunistic Bastard: When the situation allows it, she'll try to take advantage of it for her personal (and mostly financial) gain.
- Rice Burner: Sometimes drives a car that is painfully modified in it's appearance to the point where it looks ridiculous.
- Plucky Girl: She's usually energetic and cheery. Sadly, she's quite the problem child due to a certain quirk of hers.
Bob, the alcoholic skeleton, who premiered on page 502.
- The Alcoholic: Is almost never seen without vodka nearby.
- Cursed With Awesome: Bob was tricked by Satan with promises of revival, and turned into a skeleton. This would be a nightmare if it weren't for the increased strength, nigh-immortality, and the Pocket Dimension inside of his skull.

- Noodle Incident: It is said that Bob used to be the Grim Reaper, but Satan fired him, and it hasn't been explained why.
- Our Monsters Are Weird: Is a skeleton, but has organs sewn into him, allowing him to perform normal human functions. He usually uses this to get drunk.

- Batman in My Basement: Hides Emperor Elvuz in her bedroom, who apparently is a cinnamon roll.

- Random Transportation: Calls it 'Involuntary Teleportation', but it counts. Whenever she misses something about the Tropers, expect her to pop out later.
- Recurring Character: Was part of a Subplot / Running Gag along with Glitch and Elvuz. Word of God that she just popped out at random, even in dramatic moments in the main plot. Nowadays she's just another Troper more.
- Sleepyhead: Tends to fall asleep. Justified due to time zones in real life.
- What Did I Do Last Night?: Woke up in page 627 with a red nose in a room covered with tissues and a shirtless Elvuz on the ground. She starts to think in the implications of that... until Glitch pops out and says that they were watching sad films and Elvuz got Drunk on Milk.

- Fan of the Past: Downplayed. He is shown to have a phonograph and a vinyl collection. And most the bands he has been shown listening to have been from the 60's or 70's.
- Headphones Equal Isolation: Most of the time he is in the vicinity of the rest of the cast, but you (and probably not him) would notice because he has his headphones on all the time. Justified, considering his actor does this and it's the reason why his appearances can be spotty at times.
- Artsy Beret: Wears one and is shown to be a artist to setting up a art booth at the convention and sat in the corner in another episode to sketch the other tropers fighting Flowey.

- Wrong Genre Savvy: Many of his attempts at Stating the Simple Solution fail because of this.

Debuted season 7
- Artificial Intelligence: Whoever created her somehow managed to achieve this back in the 1980's. Thus, she has thought processes of her own and is able to move autonomously (with the help of an AV cart, of course).
- Berserk Button: She really, really doesn't like being asked or told to upgrade her componentsnote . If you do, then prepare for the snark.

- Emoticon: Being a computer, her monitor is her face, and thus uses these to express emotion.
- Fun with Acronyms: Her name's actually an acronym for Computer Under Service To Aid Random Dudes. It doesn't provide many clues to her original purpose, to say the least.
- Ridiculously Human Robot: Well, Ridiculously Human Computer. She's perfectly capable of feeling and expressing human emotions, has her own interests outside of her intended purpose, and has even been shown "eating" by using floppy disks with food data on it. The Turing Test ain't got nothing on her.
- "Second Law" My Ass!: When you have a sentient computer with free will, don't expect her to follow everything you tell her to do. Not to mention it's sometimes her telling the humans what to do.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: She puts on a wig, makeup, and a pink 80's prom dress for a beauty pageant in "The Beauties of Tropesberg". Despite being self-conscious about it, she managed to get first place anyway, and other Tropers let her know she's beautiful.

- Hard-Drinking Party Girl: She ends up joining the Tropers after throwing a crazy stoweaway party in their rocket ship. Once the whole thing is over, she throws up from her hangover. In every episode she is in afterword, she has a drink on her at some point in time.
- Knife Nut: Knife uses the, well, knife, pretty much exclusively.
- Last-Name Basis: Technically, her first name is Madame. She exclusively goes by Knife, her last name. It helps that apparently her siblings were also given the same first name, being differentiated by middle names.
- Razor Wings: She has cybernetic metal wing implants that act as this.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has long, light blue hair with bright red streaks in them.
- Ambiguous Gender: They openly admit to not even knowing their own gender. As a result, they go by "they/them" pronouns.

Later enforced, as Kay's anime influence eventually grows so powerful, they can't speak anything but Japanese.
- Hollywood Acid: Their blood and "hair" is made of this. It completely dissolves almost anything it touches, except for themself or something that was granted plot-convenient invincibility.
- Non-Indicative Name: They haven't been shown to possess any cutting ability, nor are they remotely insectoid.

- Ontological Mystery: He somehow ends up in a hotel on the moon, for reasons he isn't aware of. He didn't even realise he was there until his game of Dig Dug was interrupted!
- Unfazed Everyman: Zig-Zagged. On the one hand, he doesn't react to the strangeness of the tropers. On the other hand, he seems very phased by being on a hotel in the moon filled with aliens. On the other other hand, he adapts to the hotel quickly and it seems the main reason he's phased by it is because he's in a different place than he was before.
Debuted season 1

The infamous singing monster crab from Moana, who first shows up to bother the tropers in "Red Submarine" and becomes a recurring antagonist. Played by TropesForever.

- Reality Warper: He gains the ability to make Cosmic Retcons in "Obligatory Spooky Halloween Episode!".
- Villain Song: He sings "Shiny" or a part of it each time he appears.

Lord Arthur Coleberry
A pompous recurring villain faced by the tropers since season 4, paired with his incompetent lackey Lonagan.

- His Name Really Is "Barkeep": "Lord" is his actual first name.
- Humongous Mecha: The "Gunberry", a really shoddily-made mecha he unveils in "The Gundam Pilot and the Girl with the Aichi Doll". In "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor", Lonagan pilots its barely-improved successor, the Gunberry EX.
- Those Two Bad Guys: He and his lackey Lonagan are almost never seen apart, and are always hatching dastardly schemes.
- Wicked Cultured: He certainly tries to present himself this way, but he's not the best at it.
Franklin Louis Lonagan (or maybe Louis Franklin Lonagan)
- Brains and Brawn: While he's not exceptionally strong, he usually carries out the physical end of Coleberry's schemes while Coleberry focuses on the planning, making him this.

- Attention Whore: He reportedly bullied the other clowns to get more time in the spotlight, and even now, fame is what he craves the most.
- Bilingual Bonus: His name is Italian for "pompous" or "arrogant", fitting his personality.
- Devil in Plain Sight: In "The Carnival Is Not Over," he somehow got the city to trust him enough to appoint him head of entertainment.
- Expy: His slimy personality, particularly in "The Carnival Is Not Over" was inspired by Sideshow Bob. Like Bob, he is also a disgraced performer-turned-criminal who wants to kill the protagonists.
- Fatal Fireworks: In the climax of the Season 5 finale, he attacks the tropers with a bazooka that shoots fireworks.
- Master of Disguise: In "Cirque du Tropers," he pulls off a convincing Ringmaster Henderson costume, and even changes his voice to sound exactly like Henderson.
- Monster Clown: A disgraced circus clown who is equal parts manipulative and violent.
- Summon Bigger Fish: His plan in "The Carnival Is Not Over." By running the carnival and letting the people of Tropesberg have fun, he uses their happiness to perform a ritual to summon the "circus beasts," a bunch of giant twisted circus animals, to help him take over the world. They quickly turn out to be friendly, so he hypnotizes them into being evil, but it doesn't last long.
- Bastard Boyfriend: Has abused Aveyond Physically, mentally and sexually. All while thinking he was loving her and that he was the perfect one for her. The Tropers don't know the details or extent of Victor's abuse on Aveyond, other than her getting hurt and the mental strain.
- Evil, Inc.: Literally works in every evil business. Doctor, Scientist, Priest, you name it.
- French Jerk: Is French, like Aveyond, and a creepy Stalker with a Crush.

The cyborg villain from Zero Wing. First appeared as one of the villains the Tropers fought in Revenge's Day Off. Played by Zanreo.

- Human Shifting: Not quite, but his second form is decidely more human-like.
- Stealth Hi/Bye: Often appears with no introduction and disappears just as quickly.
- Suddenly SHOUTING!: Goes from calmly apologizing about how loud the car horn outside is to yelling at the driver in seconds.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Bob, in which they both hate each other, to the point that Satan fired Bob offscreen and only appeared on the show to kill him. Somehow, this turned into an (almost) insult-free duo.
- Too Kinky to Torture: Is handcuffed by 4WD, but simply states that he's into it.
- Ambiguously Human: Word of God from Tropes and Puma is that it's impossible to tell whether they're just human mimes who are really into their performance, or a different race.
- Clown Species: They are implied to be a separate species from humans.
- Conlang: They speak "mime", which just consists of body gestures. Puma can speak it too, presumably because he works as a clown. In one scene, Puma is even able to "hear" the mimes speaking mime from far away.
- Everyone Hates Mimes: Played with. Although they're perfectly friendly, Bob doesn't like them, even invoking Nothing Is Scarier while talking about them:Bob: I am simultaneously glad that there aren't any mimes, and nervous because they all disappeared at once.
Debuted on page 567. Maria is one of a group of mimes inhabiting a "mime factory" in Tropesberg, who befriends Puma. Puma accidentally misinterprets her name as "Maurice" and thinks she's a guy, but when he finds out the truth, they become close friends. Played by DrNoPuma.
- Hostage Situation: She is the victim of this when Coleberry holds her at gunpoint to keep the tropers back. This doesn't deter them from shooting Coleberry anyway, and Puma jumps in to get Maria out of the way before Coleberry can do anything to her.
- Lady Looks Like a Dude: Implied. Puma initially mistakes her for a man, although to be fair, Puma is one of the less sane tropers.

- Platonic Life-Partners: Her role with Puma, currently. They danced together in the ballroom episode, but they are still just friends.

- Anime Hair: Described as having spiky, wild hair.
- Expy: Based on Meito Anizawa aka. Anime Tenchou, another hammy, spiky-haired manager of an anime/manga shop.

- Mixed Ancestry: He's Filipino (Ivatan, specifically) and Ryukyuan (Okinawan, specifically)

- Jekyll & Hyde/ Superpowered Evil Side: Well, more "jerk" than evil, but Killer Frost is an alternate personality of Caitlin's. The two seem to regard themselves as separate women who happen to inhabit the same body.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: In her debut episode, she seemed to believe she was in a mystery story and tried to pinpoint clues as to where Leaf may have disappeared to. Said episode was actually a slice-of-life episode.
- Cousin Oliver: A kid character in the series, although the author is attempting to avoid the negative trappings of the trope.
- Genki Girl: She's very energetic.

The main antagonist of "Glitching Out." It's the head of Grand Dad, replacing the sun when the glitches take over Tropesburg.
- Adaptational Villainy: The character we know as Grand Dad was a Captain Ersatz of the heroic Mario. A crappy bootleg version, but still a heroic protagonist. Grand Sun, however, is pure evil and tries to kill the tropers. Grand Sun may not necessarily be the same character as Grand Dad, but it takes the form of Grand Dad.

- Phrase Catcher: Its mere existence causes some of the tropers to quote Vinesauce, the group that made Grand Dad a meme in the first place.

- Beehive Hairdo: She has one. It adds to her eccentricity.

- Overly Long Name: Her full last name is Evildeathmurderbloodkilldarkgorestabbenstein.
- Rhymes on a Dime: Invoked in-universe. She likes to speak in rhyme, but it's clear that she has to go out of her way to do this, and she can't keep it up when she's stressed.
