Character page for Twisted Wonderland.
- Casting a Shadow: With very few exceptions, a majority of the students use dark magic animations for their neutral elemental attacks in their gameplay. Makes sense as the aforementioned students are based on villainous characters.
- Color-Coded Characters: Every student has a color-coded armband indicating which dormitory they belong to.
- Heartslabyul: Red and black
- Savanaclaw: Yellow and black
- Octavinelle: Gray and lavender
- Scarabia: Scarlet and gold
- Pomefiore: Purple and red
- Ignihyde: Blue and black
- Diasomnia: Green and black
- Childhood Friends: Just about the majority of the dorm leaders have these types of friends they hang out with, having at least one of them being vice-dorm leaders.
- Combat Stilettos: A number of characters wear heels in their dorm outfits that they are also seen going to battle in.
- Custom Uniform: Most non-dorm leader students have their default dorm outfits adjusted to varying degrees (Wearing different accessories for some, or wearing their uniform more sloppily compared to another student) to reflect on their individual personalities. Dorm leaders stand out as the characters with the most unique dorm outfits, but they still fit the theme of their respective dorms.
- Dysfunction Junction: Everyone seems to have issues, even the Token Good Teammate students. The dorm leaders appear to be the worst off, however, save for Kalim which leads to their eventual Overblotting.
- Guest-Star Party Member: Grim and the Dorm Leaders are gacha-obtainable in Disney Tsum Tsum as part of a collaboration event. When using the skills of the Dorm Leader Tsums, the other members also show up.
- Guyliner: Eyeliner seems to be a standard part of the dorm uniforms. Riddle, Vil, Malleus and Lilia also wear eyeshadow ontop of it.
- Jerkass: Besides some exceptions, almost every character is this to an extent. Some of them being Bitch in Sheep's Clothing, at best. Though Crowley gives an in-universe justification for this behavior in the prologue. Magic users are considered a superior class of people, which causes them to become prideful, egotistical and self-centered. Even some of the non-playable characters are jerks, particularly those from Savanaclaw.
- Light 'em Up: Only three characters in the main cast are shown using light magic as their neutral elemental attack: Silver, Rook and Kalim. This serves as an indicator that these characters aren't twisted from Disney villains — Rook and Kalim are both twisted from heroic characters, while Silver's counterpart is unknown for now.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Nearly every dorm head with the exception of Scarabia in Jamil's case has one of these 7 traits associated with them, which leads to their overblotting.
- Multicolored Hair: Some characters also have more than two hair colors.
- Mysterious Past: Not in terms of characters who have literal version of this trope, but rather for characters who have unconfirmed identities as to who (or what) they are exactly based on. Particular examples being Jack, Ortho, Silver, and Lilia.
- Nominal Hero: Almost every character to a degree. Most of the characters will rarely want to do anything heroic of their own volition and will often end up saving the day for their own selfish reasons, such as not wanting a black mark on their reputation or because the villain of the week pissed them off in some way.
- Signature Move: Nearly every character has their own unique magic:
- Vil Fairest One of All
- Smug Super: According to Crowley, in general, wizards are known to be arrogant due to being considered superior to those without the ability to use magic. As a result, this behavior is shown through a majority of the main cast and even NPCs.
- Undying Loyalty: Save for Heartslabyul in the first chapter of the main story (which changes post-Riddles Character Development), the mob students of each dorm seem to hold their respective dorm leaders in high regard and go out of their way to protect them. This is exemplified in the Halloween event Screaming Monsters in which the dorm leaders being mistreated by the visitors is consistently treated as the most disrespectful thing of all the guests misdeeds over the course of the story.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Everyone has hair colors that span an entire rainbow. For literal examples we have Deuce, the Leech twins, the Shroud brothers, and to a lesser degree Malleus.
- Heartslabyul note
- Savanaclaw note
- Octavinelle note

Night Raven College Faculty
The headmaster of Night Raven College. He's the one who takes in the protagonist after they fall into Twisted Wonderland, giving them a place to stay and enrolling them in Night Raven College while he searches for a way to send them home.
- Adults Are Useless: Whenever a problem occurs at Night Raven College, he's either unable to do anything or quick to foist responsibility for solving it onto his students.
- Animal Motifs: Ravens. His mask makes him resemble one and it's hinted in the OP sequence that he can transform into one as well. He also has a conflicted relationship with Treins cat in particular and cats in general, given how hes associated with birds.
- Catchphrase: "Aren't I kind?" and variants, mostly when he does anyone a favour, especially the protagonist.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: The most eccentric of the teachers.
- Comical Overreacting: He's prone to this, much to the annoyance of the other characters.
- Cool Mask: Wears one resembling a raven. He is never seen without it.
- Dynamic Entry: After the lesson gauge is filled, he'll swoop into the class (startling the students while he's at it) for 'Special Lessons', and then fly off after five turns.
- Drama Queen: Has a penchant for overreacting to situations now and then.
- Expressive Mask: Crowley wears a raven-like mask that he never removes. However, he can be expressive even with his mask on.
- Femme Fatalons: He wears golden claw rings over each of his fingers.
- Jerkass: Shames his students for their behavior and arrogance and constantly reminds others that he is kind, but isn't much better than them. This is always Played for Laughs.
- Most Definitely Not a Villain: Crowley has a tendency to to frequently reaffirm that he is a kind and gracious man and certainly not a suspicious individual despite his tendencies and costume being well on the shady side. Time will tell whether this trope is played straight or is ultimately subverted.
- Stealth Hi/Bye: Tends to show up in the main story when people least expect him.
- Stealth Insult: He tends to do this, though whether it's intentional on his part is left ambiguous. Exemplified in the prologue when he praises Yuu for having the attributes of a "beast tamer"* , a role he believes will be important to the future of the academy. Immediately after said praise and speculation, he gleefully says that the school needs this mediocrity.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: In Chapter 4, he claims to be going to the southern lands during winter break to conduct research on how to send Yuu back home. Despite very clearly wearing a Hawaiian shirt and a fedora.Crowley: Escaping this cold and spending time gazing upon the ocean while drinking coconut juice from a hammock I am most definitely not thinking about enjoying myself to the fullest.
- Vague Age: His age is unknown. Not helping matters is his behavior at times
- Whip It Good: Uses one of these, which he dubs his "whip of love".
Twisted from: Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians
The science teacher at Night Raven College, teaching subjects such as magic pharmacy. He also has a knack for fashion.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: In a sense, as he is twisted from Cruella de Vil. But in contrast to the original Cruella, Divus Crewel is a Pretty Boy.
- Commonality Connection: He gets along with Vil due to their shared interest in fashion.
- The Fashionista: His official profile states that he has a very opinionated view on fashion.
- Gratuitous English: Gives commands like "Stay" and "Good boy!" to his students, not unlike an owner to their dogs.
- Guyliner: He visibly wears pretty thick eyeliner and dark-colored eyeshadow.
- In-Series Nickname: Floyd calls him "Striped Beakfish" note .
- Multicolored Hair: In one of his voiced lines, he tells Yuu that his hair is dyed and is angry at Yuu for suggesting that his hair is gray.
- Pretty in Mink: Just like the Disney villain he's based on, he wears a long black-and-white fur jacket.
- Sadist Teacher: As many characters note, Crewel is rather harsh when it comes to teaching. In his introduction scene, he exclaims that he'll "beat the names and appearances of 100 types of medicines into our little brains." Not to mention that he speaks to his students as if they were dogs. In the Halloween event story, he was ready to use fire magic on misbehaving Night Raven visitors until he was stopped by Trein.
The literary teacher at Night Raven College, teaching subjects such as the history of magic. He's a strict disciplinarian and owns a cat named Lucius.
- Cuteness Proximity: To his own cat familiar, Lucius.
- Right-Hand Cat: Non-villainous example. Lucius the cat serve as this to Trein.
- Stern Teacher: He might be stern and known for his boring lessons, but he at times shows a softer side to his students though that side is mostly reserved for his pet cat, Lucius.
- Widow Woman: Gender-Inverted. Just like the villain he is based on, one of Trein's voice lines about himself mention that he is a widowed husband, his wife passed away at some point as he raised their daughters in the past. (Unlike Lady Tremaine, Trein is implied to not be a stepfather to any of his children based on his voice lines).
- You Are in Command Now: In Chapter 6, Crowley leaves NRC to him when he is taken away by the Charons.
The physical education teacher at Night Raven College, teaching subjects such as physical strength development and flight techniques.
- Badass Beard: Has a beard that simulates Gaston's Lantern Jaw of Justice.
- In-Series Nickname: Floyd calls him "Lobster-sensei".
- Meaningful Name: Ashton Vargas.
- Narcissist: Just like the villain he is twisted from.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Just like the villain he is twisted from, his favorite food is raw eggs.
The owner of Mr. S's Mystery Shop, a store on campus that sells a variety of products from magical stones to raw eggs.
- Gratuitous English: Often scatters English into his speech.
- In-Series Nickname: Floyd calls him "Seahorse" note .
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others:
- Everyone in the game is based on a Classic Disney Movie. Sam, on the other hand, takes his inspiration from a modern one note .
- Additionally, Sam is the only character in the game known to be from the Jubilee Port.
- Meaningful Name: Likely named in honor of Voodoo god Baron Samedi, who inspired Dr. Facilier's design.
- Adaptational Heroism: According to Ace, the Great Seven's deeds are somewhat different from those of their movie counterparts:
- The Queen of Hearts's tyranny brought order to the chaotic world of Wonderland.
- Scar still overthrew his brother through meticulous planning, and let the previously ostracized hyenas into Pride Rock.
- Ursula's deals still came at a high price, but her purpose was to grant all unfortunate merfolk their wishes.
- Jafar saw through the princely disguise Aladdin assumed to woo Jasmine, and got both the crown and lamp while exposing Aladdin's lie.
- Hades ruled the Underworld even though it was a thankless job without ever taking a vacation. His sincerity won over Cerberus, the Hydra and even the Titans to fight for him.
- Ambiguously Evil: It's unknown just how evil they are in this world, given they created Night Raven College and, according to Ace's description, apparently did some good as well. Then again, the visions Yuu receives coincide with their movie selves, but given that the visions hail from Mickey's memories, it may be more precise to say it's a case of Alternate Self.
- As Himself: In-Universe, as they are the genuine articles who founded Night Raven College, as shown by the statues that depict them.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": With the exception of the Queen of Hearts, the rest of the Great Seven are never addressed by their real names, only by their titles.
- Scar: "The King of Beasts".
- Ursula: "The Sea Witch".
- Jafar: "The Sorcerer of the Sand".
- The Evil Queen: "The Beautiful Queen".
- Hades: "The King of the Underworld".
- Maleficent: "The Witch of Thorns".
- Our Founder: As the founders of Night Raven College, their statues decorate the Main Street.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Again it is ambiguous to what extent their original stories hold up in the world of Twisted Wonderland, but if their more dastardly actions are indeed common knowledge the seven are still held as the most revered figures who fulfilled the deeds that were described above. At one point Ace even remarks how he finds a severe ruler way cooler and respectable rather than one who is simply kind and wouldn't go to the lengths that the Queen of Hearts did.
Royal Sword Academy Students
Twisted from: The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland
Grade: Third year
Riddle and Trey's Childhood Friend. He first shows up in Chapter 1 of the main story. Later it's revealed that he goes to Royal Sword Academy, Night Raven College's rival school.

- Cats Are Magic: Just like the Cheshire Cat, Che'nya's unique magic can make him disappear and reappear at will.
- Cat Smile: Naturally.
- Cheshire Cat Grin: Isn't the Cheshire Cat for nothing.
- Childhood Friends: With Riddle and Trey. However, he goes to a different school.
- The Gadfly: Just like the Cheshire Cat, he enjoys trolling people. His mere presence during the second Unbirthday party pisses off most of the Heartslabyul dorm members, simply because he is a Royal Sword Academy student.
- The Navigator: Che'nya is really good at giving directions and finding people. He helps Dominic and the others by giving them directions to search for their four missing friends on the first day of the Vocal & Dance Championship festival.
- Overly Long Name: His full name, Alchemi Alchemivich Pinkaa, is quite a mouthful, so he tells everyone to just shorten it to 'Che'nya'.
- Small Role, Big Impact: While he only makes sparse appearances and only in Chapter 1, he's the first person to hint at Riddle's Dark and Troubled Past, leading to Yuu, Grim, Ace and Deuce going to Trey for answers and everything that follows. He's also the first to reveal the existence of Royal Sword Academy, and the intense rivalry between them and Night Raven.
- Verbal Tic: "-nya".
Twisted from: Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Grade: Second year
A Royal Sword Academy student introduced in Chapter 5 of the main story. Vil sees him as a rival for the title of most popular MagiCam influencer in Twisted Wonderland.
- Childhood Friends: In Chapter 6, according to Vil, Neige has been friends with Dominic and the six dwarfs since childhood and they have been living together and supporting each other.
- Famed in Story: Renowned throughout Twisted Wonderland because of his looks and personality. He's said to have more followers on MagiCam than Vil (who is stated to have more than 5 million) and is considered to be the "fairest of them all".
- Informed Attractiveness: Neige is considered to be the "most beautiful", and he has the most followers on MagiCam as a result. While he is adorable, it's a wonder how he's considered to be more beautiful than Vil.
- The Ingenue: His appeal is said to lie in his adorable face and naive personality which causes trouble for Vil, though it's unclear if he's aware of this or not.
- Innocently Insensitive: He's as sweet as his public persona, but it comes off as Condescending Compassion when he says the wrong thing.
- In-Series Nickname: Rook calls him "Roi du Neige".
- Locked Out of the Loop: Neige is very friendly to Vil, but he is unaware of Vil's hostility and jealousy towards him for being the "fairest of them all".
- Meaningful Name: His given name is French for 'snow', while his last name comes from the French word for 'white'. Snow White's name in French is Blanche-Neige.
- Nice Guy: Neige is actually a kind and carefree person who is friends with the dwarf students and very friendly to everyone he meets.
- Nice Hat: Wears a black beret with a red bow design, similar to the red ribbon Snow White wore in her hair. The beginning of the phrase "Someday My Princess Will Come" (derived from a song from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) is also visibly embroidered.
- Oblivious to Hatred: Neige respects and admires Vil, so he's blissfully unaware that the older boy loathes him.
- One Sided Rivalry: Vil considers him a rival for MagiCam fame. Neige, however, has never picked up on the rivalry and hopes to someday befriend Vil.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: As befitting one twisted from Snow White herself.
- Spell My Name with an "S": With no official translation, it's unknown if his surname (romanised as ryubanshe) is 'LeBlanche' or 'Revanche'. While in-game pronunciation indicates the latter, 'LeBlanche' is more thematically appropriate.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's about half a head shorter than Vil, who is one of the taller characters, dark-haired, and considered to be extremely beautiful.
- Unsettling Gender Reveal: Refreshingly averted. He has no problem whatsoever when he finds out that Rook, one of his biggest fans and the second ever member of his official fanclub, is a boy, and refers to it as a "pleasant surprise".
- World's Most Beautiful Woman: Like Snow White, he is considered to be "the fairest of them all", much to Vils ire.
Tropes applying to the dwarves in general

- Older Than They Look: The dwarfs look like children, but they are actually second year students of the Royal Sword Academy and the same age as Riddle.
- Our Dwarves Are All the Same: The dwarf students have very youthful, innocent looks and pointy ears as their traits. They can easily be mistaken for children by other people.
- Rainbow Motif: Downplayed. The dwarf students all wear identical Royal Sword Academy uniforms, but they do have color motifs corresponding to their hair colors: Gran (red), Snick (orange), Hop (yellow), Sherpy (green), Timmy (blue), Toby (purple), and Dominic (grey, which replaces indigo).
Twisted from: Doc from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Grade: Second year
- The Leader: Dominic is the leader of the dwarf students because he looks after his friends and makes sure they are not rude to students of Night Raven College, Royal Sword Academy's rival school. He gets along with them very well and he's willing to search for Toby and the other three friends after they get separated from them during the first day of the Vocal & Dance Championship festival.
- Only Sane Man: Dominic is the sane one towards his dwarf friends. He is willing to pay for laundry service after Snick accidentally sneezes snot on one of the Night Raven College student's uniforms. Dominic would rather not pick a fight with their rival school like Gran and tries to reason with them.
Twisted from: Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

- Keet: Hop is the most cheerful and carefree dwarf among the dwarf students.
Twisted from: Bashful from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Grade: Second year
- Blinding Bangs: Timmy's bangs cover his eyes as an indication of his shy and bashful personality.
- Luminescent Blush: It's difficult to see under the hair, but Timmy's face is permanently red befitting his shyness.
- Odd Name Out: Unlike his fellow dwarfs, Timmy's name is based on a synonym for his original character's name (Timid), and not directly lifted from it.
- Shrinking Violet: As a twisted version of Bashful, he is very shy and nervous.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a cobalt blue color.
Twisted from: Sneezy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Grade: Second year
- No Mouth: As a twisted version of Sneezy, Snick wears a knitted neck warmer that obscures his mouth, due to being always sneezy and not wanting anyone to get sick.
- Sneeze of Doom: Like Sneezy, Snick sneezes at the worst possible times. During the search for their dwarf friends, Snick accidentally sneezes snot on the uniform of one of the students in Savanaclaw dorm at Night Raven College, their rival school. This results in the Savanaclaw students getting pissed off and would have resulted in them beating up the dwarfs for being Royal Sword Academy students if Riddle and the others hadn't saved them in time.
- Spell My Name with an "S": With no official translation, it's unknown if his name is "Snick" or "Sneak". Many fans translate his name differently.

- The Ditz: Such a ditz that he forgot his own name in his own introduction.
- Forgetful Jones: During the introduction at the VDC festival, he forgets his own name until Gran reminds him, Dominic has to help him when he dozes off and he forgets what he was supposed to do during the dance performance with Neige and the other dwarf students.
- Innocent Blue Eyes: He has blue eyes and is the most innocent of the dwarf students.
Royal Sword Academy Faculty
- Meaningful Name: Merlin Ambrose (Myrddin Emrys in Welsh) is Merlin's full name in Geoffrey of Monmouth's writings about King Arthur.
- Mythology Gag: Being the 63rd refers to how The Sword in the Stone, the movie where the character he is twisted from originated, was released in the year 1963.
- Only One Name: Ambrose is only known by one name, "Ambrose the 63rd". It is unknown whether Ambrose is his first or last name and what his full name is.
- Wizard Classic: As the headmaster of well-known wizard school Royal Sword Academy, Ambrose wears a traditional navy blue robe, pointy hat and a short white beard.
Currently, six known cases are shown:
- An unnamed monster that appears in the prologue. It seems obsessed with magic gems and appears to be based on a Dwarf from Snow White.
- Riddle Rosehearts: His anger over people breaking the rules leads to him attacking his dorm mates. When one member eggs him during a match, he proceeds to go berserk. He takes the form of The Queen of Hearts.
- Leona Kingscholar: Stress over his loss against Malleus and reminders of his past as The Un-Favourite push him to sabotage and injure other Magical Shift players. After his plan to take out Malleus is ruined, he proceeds to attack his own dorm with his magic. He takes the form of Scar.
- Azul Ashengrotto: He breaks down when Leona uses his unique magic to destroy the contracts he collected over the years, snapping and trying to take the magic of everyone in the vicinity. He takes the form of Ursula.
- Jamil Viper: After Azul exposes his scheme to discredit Kalim and replace him as dorm leader, he admits that he has never liked Kalim as a friend, their unequal social standing forcing him to always purposely hold himself back to let Kalim stay in the spotlight. He takes the form of Jafar as a genie.
- Vil Schoenheit: After seeing how Neige had easily overtaken NRC's performance and trended in social media so quickly, Vil made a last ditch effort to win against Neige by sabotaging him before the competition starts by attempting to give Neige a drink of Apple Juice from Epel's family farm that is dabbed with Vil's Unique Magic. However, Rook stopped Neige from attempting to drink the cursed drink. Kalim then stopped Rook from trying to drink it and promptly unraveled Vil's scheme of attempting to poison a participant. Vil snapped at the thought that somebody is seeing him at his worst and unable to accept that he is second best to Neige. He takes the composite form of the Evil Queen and the Old Hag that she has become.
- Adaptational Villainy: In the game, the Faceless Monster only attacks Ace, Deuce, Grim, and Yuu because they are trespassing in the mines and steal a magic stone, but in Episode of Heartslabyul, the Faceless Monster is a bigger threat as it has no problem attacking Yuuken, a regular human who can't use magic. It even has intent to kill after sustaining major damage from Ace, Deuce and Grim's attack and almost takes Ace and Deuce's lives.
- Animal Motifs: Leona, Azul, Jamil, and Vil's Overblot outfits have animals incorporated into their design. Leona's a lion, Azul's an octopus, Jamil's snakes and Vil's peacock. Riddle meanwhile has a rose motif.
- Ax-Crazy: Each Overblot victim goes on a rampage of uninhibited violence, be it physical or magical.
- Broken Ace: What the Overblot victims have in common is that they are exceptionally talented among their peers, yet they are burdened by their troubled pasts that have heavily influenced their decisions in life, for better or worse.
- Composite Character: In a sense, Vil's overblot form and entity standing behind him is a mixture of the Evil Queen in her prime and the form of the Old Hag she disguised herself to be in her attempt to poison Snow White.
- Dragged into Drag: Riddle and Vil's Overblot forms looks like they're wearing a queen's dress. The other victims' forms also have shades of this.
- Evil Makes You Monstrous: If an Overblot victim is left alone, they will turn into a monster resembling their Guardian Entity. This is shown in their battle sprite, as the victim's aura is fed by their Guardian Entity.
- Fireball Eyeballs: Those in the main story are shown to emit the color they represent. Red for Riddle, orange for Leona, purple for Azul, crimson for Jamil and indigo for Vil.
- Guardian Entity: The Overblotted characters are guarded by the Disney villain they represent, though the body is stitched together and the head is replaced with a leaking container of ink and smoke. The prologue monster instead is just the Guardian Entity, whatever humanity they had long since vanished.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: The monster in Dwarfs' Mine aside, Jamil is the only Overblot victim to not be a dorm leader. However, this does continue the theme of victims being based on the Great Seven Disney villains.
- Light Is Not Good: Vil's Overblot form is adorned with regal gold and stars. This does nothing to detract from the fact he's a rampaging monster.
- Once per Episode: The previous Overblot victim always plays a part in the current victim's Overblot (sans Riddle, as he's the first student to be affected by Overblot).
Lilia: Hmph. Men like you are much more suited for that collar than a crown. Listening to a royal lion of the savannah talk like this is appalling. You appear to be lamenting about how youll never be king due to natural skills and order of birth, but you live slothfully if you arent rewarded. If things dont go according to your expectations, you become petty and find fault in your retainers. To become a king as you are the thought of you becoming a competitor to our Lord Malleus makes me laugh. Even if you are able to defeat him, as long as you hold that rotten grudge in your heart you will never become a true king!
- Zig-Zagged with Leona. While Leona gets collared by Riddle when he starts attacking his own dorm after reaching a Despair Event Horizon over his plan failing, however, the true nail that caused Leona's overblot was actually because of Lilia's Breaking Speech in regards to Leona's sloth.
- Azul's contracts are destroyed by Leona's magic, which causes him to have a Villainous Breakdown and steal people's magic with his own now-unrestrained power.
- Jamil's underhanded scheme to overthrow Kalim is exposed by Azul, causing Jamil to snap as he admits to his deeply rooted hatred towards Kalim since their childhood and then brainwashes the entire dorm.
- This trend is averted with Vil — Jamil is busy evacuating the colosseum, so he doesn't get involved in Vil's Overblot. However, his fellow Scarabia dorm member Kalim ends up exposing Vil's plan to poison Neige (recognizing the signs he would do so as similar to those before Jamil overblotted) and chewing him out over it, causing Vil to snap and attempt to poison him, Rook, Yuu, and Grim.
- One-Winged Angel: To the Arc Villain of each chapter.
- Palette Swap: In the Vargas CAMP event, there's a monster who has the same appearance as the Faceless Monster from the prologue, except it's green instead of red. Yuu notices that the monster has a different color than the one they encountered before.
- Power Floats: The Overblotted forms show their victims floating in mid-air, as seen in both the story mode and gameplay.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Currently, each victim's Fatal Flaw seems to be based on the seven sins:
- Riddle Wrath: He's quick to anger and ends up punishing a lot of the dorm members simply because he was in a bad mood. This is main reason for his Overblot.
- Leona Sloth: Because he keeps beating himself up over being Always Second Best, he gives up easily when things don't go as planned. Lilia even calls him out on it, which is the final push leading him to Overblot.
- Azul Greed: Due to his upbringing, he only cares about his collection as a way of screwing over others as a form of revenge, and once he loses his magical golden contracts, he snaps and proceeds to try and steal the entire dorm's magic, which quickly corrupts him.
- Jamil Envy: Being raised as the son of a servant's family, he was never allowed to fully show his potential and was always held back by his status, even though he's always been more talented in every aspect compared to Kalim. Even if Kalim claims they were childhood friends, Jamil has always resented Kalim's presence and wished to take over his position as the dorm leadersimply to prove that he has always been the superior one between the two.
- Vil - Pride, complete with peacock imagery. Vil is as obsessed with being the most popular star as he is with being beautiful, which motivates him to participate in the VDC so that he can upstage his rival Neige. When it is clear this will not happen even after weeks of strictly training his group Vil resorts to poisoning Neige, and when he is exposed he overblots at the thought of being seen at his worst and remaining second best.
- Superpowered Evil Side: The Overblot forms are this for the victims, seeing as they are taken over by negative emotions.
- Taking You with Me: In Episode of Heartslabyul, the Faceless Monster's failed attempt to kill Ace and Deuce before it disappears due to its injuries until Riddle finishes it up with his fire magic.
- Voice of the Legion: Overblot victims get an electronic, demonic tint in their voices after transformation, adding to the scare factor of Overblotting.
- Walking Spoiler: Their existence serves as this, as talking about them immediately reveals who the Arc Villain of each chapter is.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Fortunately, Overblotting is reversiblejust wear the victim out by beating them up. However, if left alone for too long, Overblot victims can transform into a full monster, similar to the one found in Dwarfs' Mine.
- It's All About Me: In general, most of them only care about getting their own "Likes" on Magicam than they care about the other guests attending and how much trouble they give to the cast for their actions.
- Jerkass: They only care about likes, damaging public property just for social clicks. The last straw is when they vandalize and threw over the Great Seven statues just to pose as them.
- Laser-Guided Karma: In Chapter 4 of "Scary Monsters", all their actions finally caught up to them when the students decided to scare them all away for the damage they had done, with the vandalism of the Great Seven statues as the last straw that broke the camel's back to them.
- Obliviously Evil: Downplayed due to the context of the event, but they think that they're just having fun and so does everyone else in their It's All About Me mentality, not realizing that the things they do just cause more trouble and inconvenience for others in the long run.
- Take That!: All the actions they had done so far makes them a dead ringer jab towards social media users who acted similarly as these "Magicam Monsters" did in real life.
The deceased princess of a kingdom betrayed and ruined in war. Her dream of marrying her ideal prince was never fulfilled in life, and she and her ghost retainers visit Twisted Wonderland every year to search the world of the living for a man who meets all her requirements. She is introduced in the Ghost Marriage event.
- And Now You Must Marry Me: She abducts Idia to be her groom, either ignoring his protests or rationalising them as his being shy.
- The Bad Guy Wins: Another case that's Played for Laughs. Eliza does end up getting what she wants, just as soon as she realizes that Idia wasn't the one she wanted... it was Chubby.
- Bitch Slap: Doles these out without hesitation, managing to slap half the main cast. For bonus effect, her victims are all immobilised until shortly before the end of the event.
- Cute Ghost Girl: Her design is the most humanoid and attractive out of all the ghosts in the game.
- Disproportionate Retribution: While some of her groom candidates are indeed disrespectful, she uses paralysis-inducing slaps on all of them even if all they do is get tongue-tied due to nerves, as is the case with Deuce.
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Slaps a number of the male cast members for very little reason when they fail to meet her absurdly high standards. Naturally, this is Played for Laughs.
- Happily Married: If the events ending illustration is any indication, Eliza and Chubby are happy together.
- Karma Houdini: After all the trouble she causes and the physical abuse she inflicted on a good portion of the cast, she gets away with everything scot-free, doesn't take personal responsibility for her actions, marries Chubby who turns out to be her One True Love and goes into the afterlife for her honeymoon with him as the ending illustration implies that they're going to be happy together. And if that wasn't enough, Ace's SSR Groom-For-The-Day episode has Crowley forcing almost everyone involved to clean up the mess left by her and her companions.
- Love Epiphany: She finally realises that Chubby is her true love after he is nearly destroyed trying to stop Ace and co. from derailing her wedding to Idia despite being in love with her himself, just because he wants to see her happy.
- Marry for Love: Decides to marry Chubby despite him not fitting her original standard for an ideal prince because she genuinely loves him.
- Never My Fault: Even after Ace's "The Reason You Suck" Speech to her and her companions, she refuses to take personal responsibility for her inability to find the perfect groom or even for all the trouble she caused everyone.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Eliza is the only ghost with a unique character design compared to the others in the Ghost Marriage event that use the recycled sprites of the ghosts located in Ramshackle dorm. Even her love interest has a recycled design.
- Runaway Bride: At the end of the event, she dumps Idia and leaves the wedding ceremony with Chubby. It's a happy ending for all involved since Idia didn't want to marry her in the first place, but he's still understandably disgruntled at being cast aside after spending the entire event in fear.
- Sheltered Aristocrat: She is a deceased princess who was adored by her kingdom for her youthful innocence and kindness, inspiring the Undying Loyalty of her retainers. She never faulted them for failing to save her life and asks them to stop bringing up the tragedies of the past whenever they blame themselves. On the other hand, she's also so obsessed with her ideal marriage (influenced by her retainers encouraging and enabling her out of blind devotion) that she abducts a student against his will and thinks nothing of the fact that marrying her will kill him, and slaps her suitors for even the most trivial 'offences'.
- Thinks Like a Romance Novel: Or like a Disney movie. Her original requirements for her ideal prince are absurdly superficial, and she later rejects several groom candidates for such offences as not singing an impromptu duet with her and not owning a large dog.
- True Love's Kiss: How Eliza saves Chubby from fading away forever.
- Un-Duet: She tests Leona's worthiness to be her groom by beginning an impromptu duet, and rejects him when he naturally doesn't follow through.
- Wight in a Wedding Dress: She wears a full bridal outfit complete with a rose crown veil.
One of the ghosts that appeared during the Ghost Marriage event. He's known Eliza for over 500 years and has been pining over her for just as long, though she only views him as a loyal friend... until the end of the event, that is.
- All Love Is Unrequited: Averted Trope, as this was only the case for the first half of the event, and in-universe, for the past 500 years. According to him, he has adored Eliza since he was born, but she had only seen him as a loyal friend as she was too focused on finding her ideal prince to notice his feelings. At the end of the event, he triggers a Love Epiphany in Eliza and she returns his feelings, leading them to marry and honeymoon into the afterlife.
- Deader Than Dead: What would have happened to him if Eliza didn't save him.
- Dogged Nice Guy: Had stuck by Eliza for over 500 years while she searched for her ideal prince all whilst pining for her the entire time. It pays off in the end when she finally realizes she loves him and they marry.
- Happily Married: If the events ending illustration is any indication, he and Eliza are happy together.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts to invoke this by using up all his built of regret to take down the events protagonists which nearly kills him. This triggers a love epiphany in Eliza as he begins to fade away and she saves him with true loves kiss.
- I Just Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Though not entirely pleased with it, he does care more about Eliza being happy with the one she loves than he does about his own happiness and desire to be with her.
- Love Epiphany: Triggers one in Eliza when he nearly sacrifices himself for her.
- True Love's Kiss: How Eliza saves him from fading away forever.
S.T.Y.XAn organization that is not associated with any particular government or country with a focus on investigating blots and Overblots in general. In response to this, they have authority on capturing certain overblotted individuals for their investigations, with some meeting a grim fate. They are led by the Shroud family, a branch family of the Jupiter family and located in Isle of Lamentation. They serves as an antagonist group in Chapter 6.
- Armor of Invincibility: The Charon division wears magic-proof plate armor underneath their uniforms to protect them from stronger and more powerful magic users, mostly Overblotted victims who are incapable of changing back to their normal selves.
- Godzilla Threshold: Serve as this in regards to Overblots. Their Charon Op force are rarely sent beyond being a last resort, when it's far too late to return the victim back to their senses. The fact that they are sent and authorized to use violence on the already recovered Overblotted victims if they fought back has Idia chiding them for being too violent.
- Hover Board: The Charon division has flying hoverboards they use for transportation and in the battle where they capture the Overblot victims.
Students of Night Raven College's Families
Riddle's mother, who debuts in a flashback during part 25 of episode 1.
- Abusive Parents: She micromanaged Riddle's life (to the point of only giving him an hour of free time each day, and even less later) and would punish him whenever he stepped out of line.
- Artistic License Biology: She claims that eight-year-old Riddle's ideal caloric intake should be less than 600 calories; at his age, it should be more than twice that amount. This is especially glaring since she's essentially supposed to be a doctor, and thus should know better.
- Control Freak: Controlled her son's life down to the minute.
- Education Mama: She made her son use all his time to study and punished him whenever he wouldn't.
- The Ghost: We hear her voice and see her silhouette, but that's it.
- Strong Family Resemblance: It's barely noticeable as she's only seen as a silhouette, but she's got Hair Antennae just like her son's.
- Villain with Good Publicity: She's a well-respected healer in the city Riddle lived in who was able to hide the fact that she was starving her son (among other punishments) behind closed doors.
- Walking Spoiler: She's the reason Riddle is the rule-obsessed tyrant he is in the present.
Twisted from: Simba from The Lion King (1994)
Leona's nephew and the heir to the throne of the Afterglow Savannah after his father. He first shows up in part 30 of Chapter 2.
- The Bus Came Back: Makes an appearance in Chapter 5 of the Halloween event Scary Monsters, which served as his first appearance since Chapter 2 of the main story and his first appearance in an event story.
- Cat Boy: Has lion ears and a tail.
- Cat Smile: Adding to his cuteness.
- Cheerful Child: He's very energetic, and doesn't seem to notice that his uncle is less than enthusiastic about spending time with him.
- Children Are Innocent: Is only 5 years old in his first appearance and is blissfully unaware of the emotional turmoil he's caused for Leona for just being born.
- The Glomp: His Establishing Character Moment has him jumping on Leona to hug him. Given that Leona was in an infirmary bed at the time, he was not amused.
- Morality Pet: Despite all the emotional turmoil he's caused Leona on account of being born into their family, his initial appearance and interactions with Leona imply that despite those circumstances, Leona still can't bring himself to be a jerk to him directly.
- Token Mini-Moe: Cute and huggable, he's also the only young child character in a cast full of college students (Ortho notwithstanding).
Twisted from: Mufasa from The Lion King (1994)
Leona's older brother and the father of Cheka. He debuts in a flashback sequence during Episode 2 part 27, however unlike his son, he has yet to be given an official design.
- 100% Adoration Rating: If the flashbacks are any indication.
- Always Second Best: Leona rightfully views himself as this to Farena, as being born second-in-line caused him to be treated differently by those who raised both children, even into adulthood.
- Family Theme Naming: Both his and Leona's names end with "-na".
- Gender-Blender Name: Averted, as Farena isn't a real name, despite it sounding feminine.
- Parental Favoritism: Between him and Leona, it extended beyond their parents as everyone showered Farena with praise whilst neglecting and looking down upon Leona solely because he was born second.
- Sibling Rivalry: It's shown in the flashback that Leona and Farena do not get along due to their differing positions and how those differing positions affected how Leona was treated growing up.
- Famed in Story: Eric is a famed world-class actor.
- The Ghost: His only physical appearance is through a silhouette.
- Good Parents: A loving and supporting father to Vil, from what little is seen of him in Vil's flashback of his past. Vil's birthday personal stories and voice lines, also shows that Vil is, for all that it's worth, very grateful to have a father like him.
Twisted from: Nasira from Disney's Aladdin in Nasira's Revenge
Jamil's sister. She makes an official debut in "Land of Hot Sands Al'aleab Naria" event.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Was implied as such in Jamil's Dorm Uniform SSR card story, and her debut shows Najma casually stealing Jamil's Shawarma that he bought from the festival and soon followed with the siblings bickering.
- The Ghost: Has only been mentioned before she makes a proper appearance in "Land of Hot Sands Al'aleab Naria".
- Strong Family Resemblance: Najma is basically a splitting image of her brother.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Najma's favorite food is kurma.
Mickey Mouse himself, who has been trying to communicate with Yuu through Ramshackle dorm's mirror. He first shows up towards the end of Chapter 3 after the chapter's conflict with Azul and Octavinelle dorm has been settled, and then again slightly before Chapter 4's end where he formally introduces himself to Yuu. His full appearance is then shown in the middle of chapter 5, while dealing with Vil and Pomefiore dorm.
- As Himself: The only character so far outside Yuu's visions who is not represented by a Twisted version but falls under this trope instead.
- The Ghost: Up until chapter 5, you only see his silhouette.
- Magic Mirror: Where Yuu encounters him in.
- Mythology Gag: Mickey's appearance, as revealed in chapter 5, is reminiscent of his appearance in Thru the Mirror.
- Recurring Dreams: He tells Yuu that he keeps dreaming of living cards and a dancing music box and hearing Yuu's voice.
- Shared Dream: In Chapter 5 finale, it is revealed that Mickey was able to communicate with Yuu inside the mirror through his dreams. However, he can't cross between his world and Twisted Wonderland.
- Unseen No More: Chapter 5 finally reveals his full appearance beyond a talking silhouette.
- Walking Spoiler: Anyone who's reading this section without clearing Chapter 3 onwards, you've been warned.
Twisted from: ???
- A Day in the Limelight: In a way, as the Fairy Gala event put focus on fairies in general and explained their purpose. However, the event doesn't focus on one fairy specifically, with the fairy queen and the only named fairy, Maisy, having a minor role overall.
- Affably Evil: It's ambiguous, as it's unknown if the fairies are aware of the fact that removing the magic stone caused trouble for the rest of the school and fairy Maisy is depicted as rather nice toward the main cast before they infiltrate the venue despite them visibly being different "fairies". That said, they only interact with Maisy after they've disguised themselves as fairies using the fairy powder they had bought from Sam. It's unknown if Maisy would have been as kind to them had they known that Leona and company weren't fairies, as the other fairies in the event are shown to become rather aggressive when sensing a "human" in the venue after Ruggie and Yuu have their powder washed off accidentally in the botanical gardens sprinkler system.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: The fairies come in all sorts of colors that coincide with what elements they have control over. The only exception are tinker fairies, who look like normal humans, except small.
- Ambiguous Gender: Save for the Fairy Queen, all of the fairies are drawn androgynously, making it difficult to tell if they're male or female.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The fairies colors indicate what kinds of fairy they are. Water fairies are blue, fire fairies are orange, tinker fairies wear green. The queen fairy is implied to be a light fairy, and as such, she has yellow and light orange colors.
- Elemental Powers: Fire fairies control fire and water fairies control water. So far, these are the only type of elemental fairies we've seen for ourselves, though Malleus confirms that many other types exist.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The Fairy Queen is only called "the Fairy Queen" by everyone that mentions her.
- Evil Is Petty: They aren't "evil", maybe, but both Malleus and Crowley imply that they're petty enough to doom the entirety of Twisted Wonderland to an eternal winter if their celebration were to be interrupted by outsiders.
- Expy: The tinker fairies are a reference to Tinker Bell in both role and appearance.
- The Fair Folk: They're fairies like Malleus, Lilia and Sebek but they're a different type. Malleus says they'd be afraid of him if he approached them in the venue.
- Fangirl: They become infatuated with Leona after seeing his modeling at the venue, enough to fail in their guard duties while they fawn over him.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: According to Malleus, they get angry over the littlest things which is why he warns the cast against interrupting them at their venue.
- Jerkass: The smaller fairies are implied to be this through Malleus' and Crowley's dialogue. Malleus explains that they're the type of fairies that are stubborn and will become angry over little things, and angry enough to doom the entirety of Twisted Wonderland to an eternal winter if their spring welcoming celebration is interrupted, according to Crowley. Malleus also specifies that good-natured fairies like himself are rare.
- Karma Houdini: They never do get punished for messing up with weather system in the school, though Crowley implies that there's no sort of punishment that they could give to the fairies that wouldn't result in them dooming Twisted Wonderland to an eternal winter.
- Little People: They're fairies like Malleus, Lilia and Sebek, but they're palm sized.
- Making a Splash: Water fairies lord over water, and thusly they can do this.
- Mr. Fixit: The job of the tinker fairies. In Night Raven College, they're in charge of making the tools the elemental fairies need to change the weather.
- Mundane Utility: The fairies powers and what they can control vary depending on the types of fairies they are. Fire fairies control fire, water fairies control water, tinker fairies are excellent craftsmen and can create anything within seconds ... but all of these powers are put to mundane use such as keeping the seasons in check or controlling a crystal needed to balance the climates within the dorms like living air conditioners.
- Mythology Gag: Through Malleus' exposition in Fairy Gala, we learn that they're essentially references to the fairies from the Disney Fairies franchise.
- The tinker fairies are expies of Tinker Bell in both role and design.
- The queen fairy is a reference to queen Clarion, the queen of Pixie Hollow in the movies. The queen fairy we seen in the event is also the queen of Pixie Hollow, though it's unknown if she's supposed to be queen Clarion, a fairy that took over her role after she passed on, or simply twisted from her.
- The types of fairies Malleus explains exist within the twisted universe; tinker fairies, garden fairies, light fairies, animal fairies, and thistle fairies are all types of fairies that exist within the Disney fairies franchise.
- The fairies make bell sounds when they speak, making it impossible for the main cast to understand fairy Maisy when they try to communicate with them. This is a reference to both the Disney Fairies franchise and the original Peter Pan movies.
- Nominal Importance: Maisy is the only fairy named in the fairy Gala event. The Fairy Queen is only called by her title.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Averted Trope. They fit the description of what most people imagine when they think of fairies, unlike the fairies we see in the main cast.
- Playing with Fire: Fire fairies can do this. We see a fire fairy lighting a fire using their magic in the main story when Grim complains about being cold.
- Pointy Ears: They all have pointed ears, which further hints at their fairy nature.
- The Unintelligible: When fairies speak, they make bell sounds, and the cast can't understand them as a result. The Fairy Maisy builds a translator so that they can communicate.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Maybe. The player never ends up finding out if they're aware of the fact that their removal of the crystal needed to balance the seasons of each dorm threw everything out of wack or if they care at all that it happened. Crowley implies that the fairies do know, but would threaten to doom Twisted Wonderland to an eternal winter if they were to interrupt their celebration.
- Weather Dissonance: They cause this to happen when they remove the magical stone needed to balance the climate of the school and each respective dorm.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: We don't see what happens to fairy Maisy at the end of the event, though it can be assumed that they returned to Pixie Hollow with everyone else.
- You Don't Look Like You: The queen fairy, who is stated by Malleus to be the queen of Pixie Hollow. She shares this role with queen Clarion from the Disney Fairies movies, however they have very few things in common appearance wise and she otherwise looks nothing like Clarion. It's possible that she's simply twisted from her rather than intended to be her representative. In general, though, the fairies lack the distinctly human appearance that they had in the movie, save for the tinker fairies who directly take inspiration from Tinker Bells design.
