Tropes Common to All:
- The Atoner: Since meat eating is morally wrong in their eyes, the vegans see their lifestyle and activism as atoning for their non-vegan days.
- Beauty = Goodness: All of the vegans are absolutely adorable. While some of the "carnists" are beautiful as well, some are ugly, while none of the vegans are.
- Can't Take Criticism: Any constructive or non-constructive criticism of veganism is dismissed by the protagonists as being flawed, ignorant, or rude, even when a lot of them have sound arguments.
- Evil Vegetarian: "Carnist" characters accuse them of being this at times.
- Hypocrite: They see no difference between Jews and pigs, consider everyone who disagrees with them brainwashed by the system, parasites and evil, have no problem with murdering those who disagree with them or enabling it... and break Godwin's Law often.
- Politically Incorrect Heroes: Of the thoughtless variety, with their willingness to compare not being vegan to various human-rights violations, to condone the objectification of women for PeTA-style shock value,dismissive of non-vegan religious/spiritual beliefs,and so on.
- Smug Straight Edge: All of them have a Holier Than Thou attitude that makes them belittle or chastise omnivores as being morally inferior just because they consume animal products. They even smugly claim that even omnivores themselves subconsciously think their actions are bad.
- Straw Vegetarian: All of them, at some point, have behaved like straight examples of the trope. Except we're supposed to sympathize with them.
- Well Intentioned Extremists: They believe their self-righteous (and sometimes violent) actions are in the best interests of standing up for animals. Since they are favored by the narrative, their behavior and stances are never treated as being extreme.
The most frequently appearing vegan. Her name was changed from Brie to Plausibell during the change to the simpler art style. Has a younger brother, Shawn, who she frequently butts heads with, along with a younger sister, Cherry, who is being raised vegan.
- The Ace: She is an accomplished young woman, who inspired her mother to become vegan, get her family out of debt by starting up a successful business, and did well in school.
- All-Loving Hero: Her biggest attribute is that she is supposed to be kind and caring, however, for many critics this comes across as selective compassion that is only reserved for her fellow vegans and animals.
- Author Avatar: Is Yerdian's usual mouthpiece; additionally, Cuntons allegedly stalking and harassing her in an attempt to silence her is based on Yerdian's account of a conflict between herself and a critic.
- Big Sister Bully: She at times can be very passive aggressively mean towards Shawn, due to his non-vegan status. This is averted with Cherry, who she has a better relationship with, since they are both vegans.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Meta character-wise, she is supposed to be seen as the Nice Girl heroine of the story, however, non-vegans (along with non-extreme vegans) find her to be condescending, intolerant, and unsympathetic to those who don't agree with her views.
- Cain and Abel: Has this dynamic with her brother, Shawn, due to her being a vegan while he is a dedicated meat eater. Since the comic always sides with the vegans, Shawn is portrayed as the Cain while Brie/Plausibell is the Abel.
- Cool Big Sis: Her younger sister, Cherry, looks up to her due to being vegan.
- Cool Teacher: Yerdian revealed she is Legua's, who was inspired to become vegan because of her.
- Deadpan Snarker: Early in the comic, she was more sarcastic until Yerdian dropped that aspect of her in order to make her nicer.
- Disappeared Dad: Their father left them in debt, while running off with a younger woman.
- Dumb Blonde: Supposedly averted, since she is never treated as being wrong about anything, ever. She is also stated to be a part-time teacher, while being an excellent student when she was in school. Nonetheless accidentally comes off as one, although less in terms of being The Ditz than in terms of a sort of dogmatic willful ignorance.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The narrative of the comic depicts Brie/Plausibell as being the more responsible sibling due to her status as a vegan and is portrayed as always have the better argument for her stances, in comparison to her brother Shawn, who is seen as the foolish sibling.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Averted; she gets along well with her younger sister Cherry, presumably because Cherry is a fellow vegan.
- Granola Girl: An animal loving vegan.
- Happily Adopted: She was adopted into the family before Shawn and Cherry were born .
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Seen as this by the narrative. For those that don't agree with her dogmatic views, she subverts this trope.
- Hippie Teacher: She's a teacher and avid activist for veganism.
- Improbable Age: Before her age up, she was supposed to be 18 years old and a teacher, in addition to running her own online store (which has been retconned to being a vegan food business).
- Informed Attribute: Yerdian describes her as often trying to reach out to Shawn in order to help him, but he always refuses due to his pride holding him back. However, in the vegan books, it's actually shown to be the other way around. Shawn is always trying to extend a leaf and come to mutual respect of each other's lifestyles, while Plausibell rejects any opportunity, due to believing it would be condoning animal abuse. And this is portrayed as her adhering to her values, instead of being dogmatically stubborn.
- Informed Kindness: While she is billed as the absolute angel of sweetness and compassion, she can more accurately be described as sanctimonious, mean-spirited, and underhanded.
- Ironic Name: Her former name, Brie, also happens to be the name of a type of cheese, a decidedly non-vegan food.
- Irony: She supports highly misinformed material about veganism and omnivorism, while being a teacher.
- Meaningful Name: Her new name, Plausibell, was most likely intended to invoke this. In light of her being an Author Avatar whose purpose is to spout propaganda, it comes off as quite the opposite.
- Nice Girl: Meant to be an example of this, shown by her refusal to eat meat and her love of animals. However, she averts this for anyone who doesn't agree with the views of the comic.
- Not So Different: Even though the narrative tries to paint her as being morally better than her "carnist" brother, Shawn, she has shown she can be just as smug and rude as him on many occasions.
- Older Than They Look: After she is aged up, she still looks like she could still pass as a teenager.
- Out of Focus: Despite being the most frequently appearing vegan in earlier books, she has actually stopped appearing in later Pupa Vegan books. Her younger sister instead has taken the spot that was usually reserved for her.
- Pimped-Out Dress: Frequently seen wearing one.
- Ship Tease: Is depicted as being engaged to Rohit in one strip.
- Sibling Rivalry: She and Shawn are often shown butting heads with each other on the issues of veganism and omnivorism. Shawn sometimes tries to troll his sister with meat-eating comments, while Brie/Plausibell decries his omnivorous diet.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Has this dynamic with Shawn. Shawn is a hardcore omnivore with a love for bacon, while Brie/Plausibell is a vocal vegan with a distaste for any kind of meat. On a character-design levelwhile they do have some visual elements such as blondness in commonShawn is a spiky-haired boy who tends to dress casually, while Brie/Plausibell is a neatly-coiffed girl who seems to never wear anything except fancy dresses.
- Sudden Name Change: Her name was changed to Plausibell in Pupa Vegan.
- Supreme Chef: Said to love cooking and making cakes, even bringing her own homemade vegan cupcakes to school.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Invoked and downplayed; she lost her sarcastic trait due to Yerdian wanting to portray her as a nicer person, which a lot of non-extreme vegan readers think didn't really change her character.
- Toxic Friend Influence: From a detractor's perspective, Brie/Plausibell is this to many of her loved ones, specifically Legua, Dolly, Lulu, and Cherry, with the former three going from once being tolerant of eating meat to hating any omnivore, including Shawn, who was close friends with Legua and at least got along with Dolly. Likewise with the latter, who is being raised vegan with the help of her older sister and looks up to to her.
- Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Both names she has had don't seem to make a lot of sense. Brie is a type of cheese, and Plausibell is, ironically, a rather implausible name.
- Women Are Wiser: She gets treated as being more rational, mature, and intelligent than her younger brother, due to being vegan.
LeguaAnother frequently appearing vegan.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: She is crushing on Sanc, an animal liberator that is described as a "nut job" by Yerdian.
- All-Loving Hero: Supposed to be this, but comes off as a Jerkass to the webcomic's critics.
- As Long as It Sounds Foreign: "Legua" is not an actual first name, but based on the Dutch word for inguana (Leguuan).
- Author Avatar: While Plausibell makes most of the webcomic's arguments for veganism, Legua takes a close second place. In addition, she looks similar to the webcomic's artist.
- Notably, she stopped appearing in Pupa Vegan, the same series where Priya's Fictional Counterpart started appearing.
- Beware the Nice Ones: A sweet vegan that has also kicked Shawn right between the legs to make a point about veganism.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Cares about animals and is quite compassionate; to her fellow vegans, that is. Towards "carnists," she shows quite the mean and violent streak.
- Femme Fatale: Legua has flirted with Shawn a few times, in the interests of trolling or assaulting him a moment later.
- Granola Girl: Like the rest of her female and vegan peers.
- Horrible Judge of Character: She's friends with Sterk and Raziel, and crushing on Sanc, all three of whom are described as nut jobs.
- Hot-Blooded: Aside from the above mention incident where she kicked Shawn in the balls, she also seems more emotional than Plausibell.
- Informed Kindness: Like Plausibell, she is treated as the epitome of kindness, but ends up seeming more like a jerk and a bully towards the omnivores.
- Morality Pet: Towards Sterk, who protects her from omnivores. Not that any of this is seen in the comics available online, mind you.
- Ms. Fanservice: Is often shown in gorgeous Indian styled dresses. Her clothing also tends to be skimpier than the rest of the cast's.
- Nice Girl: Like Plausibell, her veganism is supposed to make her this, even when she acts mean towards those that don't share her views.
- Only Friend: To Sterk.
- Out of Focus: She only has appeared in one strip for the Pupa Vegan books.
- Rapunzel Hair: Has an incredibly poofy ponytail that goes almost to her feet.
- Second Love: To Shawn, after Lulu broke up with him, due to converting to veganism and his "supposed" toxic behavior towards her when she embraced it. Sadly, she too would cut ties with him after becoming vegan.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Is infatuated with fellow vegan Sanc. This is also why she is not interested in Shawn, since she considers his meat eating to be morally wrong.◊
- Twofer Token Minority: She is Indian and female.
- Younger than She Looks: She's 16, making her younger than Plausibell and Shawn.
DollyA vegan that appears about as often as Legua. She was formerly a "carnist" before becoming a vegan in the Vegventure comics, at which point she became a sympathetic character. Her sister, Diva, is still an omnivore.
- A-Cup Angst: Beat up Shawn back when she was an omnivore for calling her skinny and flat chested.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Has a crush on Sterk, who has been seen casually murdering people.
- Beauty = Goodness: According to Word of God, she was made a vegan because Priya considered her too cute to be an antagonist.
- The Bully: Supposedly bullied vegans with Shawn before she became one herself, not that we ever see this.
- Butt-Monkey: Was this before she went vegan, and was even given this treatment for a little while after she went vegan.
- Cain and Abel: The Abel to Diva's Cain, since she is vegan, thus making her a protagonist in the narrative's eyes.
- Character Development: Dolly starts out as a "carnist" character, but through spending time learning about veganism from Brie and the others, she becomes a vegan. According to any reader who doesn't agree wholeheartedly with Yerdian, this is a case of Tropes Are Not Good: After her conversion to veganism, she becomes just as self-righteous and intolerant as her friends.
- Childhood Friends: Before Brie/Plausibell's age was retconned, she and Dolly were described as having been friends since they were kids.
- Easy Evangelism: Averted; it took her over a year before she became vegan.
- Enraged by Idiocy: After she became vegan, she frequently snaps at "carnist" characters for spouting in her eyes ignorant statements that are meant to refute veganism or portray vegans as hypocrites.
- Fangirl: Implied to be one of Super Mario Bros., given the Super Mushroom clip she has on her visor.
- Farm Boy: Gender Inverted; She used to work on their uncle's farm like her big sister, but later became vegan and became a vocal opponent of animal agriculture.
- Genki Girl: Described as "perky" on one of her character info page. In the comic, this isn't as apparent, since the vegans are all basically carbon copies of each other.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: While Diva is an omnivore working on their uncle's farm, Dolly is a vegan that considers animal farms and omnivorism to be morally wrong.
- Hazy Feel Turn: Dolly was originally a "carnist," but later went vegan after a brief interval of fluctuating back and forth between Butt-Monkey (getting mocked by Lilith◊ for being "merely" vegetarian or accused of "ignorance" for having no energy when her only available options were rice and ramen) and mouthpiece (stealing Shawn's mushrooms when he makes the mistake of expressing distaste for "vegan food" while eating them). This is treated like a HeelFace Turn due to the comic's stance on omnivory, but is better defined as this trope in any other context.
- Hot-Blooded: Even more so than Legua, she is prone to have angry outbursts and even beats up others, who get on her bad side.
- Intergenerational Friendship: She is described as being Plausibell's best friend, despite them having a 12 year age gap.
- Pet the Dog: Even though she was responsible for getting Shawn forced into an unwinnable fight against Rohit, it's still nice to see her concerned about his well-being after said fight.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Supposedly this after her Hazy Feel Turn.
- Smug Snake: Even after her Hazy Feel Turn, she's nearly as likely to be caught smirking as Shawn.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: After becoming vegan, Dolly has become just as much of a jerk as the other vegans. A notable case is the fact that she lacks any empathy for the people who could have possibly been hurt when a bunch of calves got loose, and shows more sympathy for the escaped cattle.
- Took a Level in Kindness: What Dolly's conversion to veganism was supposed to be seen as.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Is said to love energy drinks, though she has not been seen drinking any on screen.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink, in Dolly's case.
MikeA sweet vegan that doesn't appear as often as Plausibell, Legua, or Dolly. She was introduced to show that being skinny wasn't a requirement for being vegan, though the fact that her obesity is blamed on her mother feeding her unhealthy non-vegan foods kind of destroys that message. Her mother Elise and her brother Tommy are both still "carnists."
- All-Loving Hero: Definitely shows this trope more than most of her fellow vegans, though even she has her jerk moments.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Like Legua, she's a sweet vegan. Unlike Legua, she chose to give Shawn burns with her tea rather than wreck his reproductive system when he said something she found offensive.
- Big Beautiful Woman: She's one of the fattest recurring characters in the series, but also sweet-faced, bright-eyed, and described as "cute" on her cast page.
- Disappeared Dad: There is no mention of her father, even though her mother, Elise, is a noted character.
- Idiot Hair: Has one in the shape of a heart.
- Food Slap: Throws tea in Shawn's face for calling her human. It Makes Sense In Context.
- Jerkass Ball: Although Mike is one of the nicer protagonists, she does have moments where she can be just as mean to Shawn as the others. The most prominent examples are stealing Shawn's fries when he refuses to eat fake meat, joining her friends in beating him up after Sterk uses him as an excuse to be apathetic, and scalding him with tea for calling her "human."
- Nice Girl: One of the better examples of this among the vegans. While she can be a jerk sometimes, she isn't a jerk as often as her friends.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Likes "vegan junkfood," which seems to mean "French fries stolen from Shawn in order to make a point."
- White Sheep: By the standards' of the series' ethics, Mike is considered this, due to be the only vegan in her family.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Like Dolly, she has pink hair, though hers is a darker shade of pink than Dolly's.
RohitLegua's cousin, who is a boxer and a bodybuilder. He was raised vegan by his parents and is a practicing Hindu. He is the most common recurring male vegan of the cast.
- Hunk: Justified since he's a bodybuilder, and has molded his body to be muscular and well-toned.
- Hypocrite: He derides killing animals and eating meat as being unmanly and barbaric, since he views it as picking on those weaker than oneself. And yet he's a grown man who has no problem physically attacking minors over differences of opinion.
- Improbable Age: Just like with Plausibell, his age was changed due to how unrealistic it would be for an 18 year old to have his type of education and experience, while also being a personal trainer.
- Informed Attribute: He is supposed to do dislike Sterk, but in the one strip where they interact he doesn't treat him with disdain as he does with all non-vegan characters like Shawn.
- Intergenerational Friendship: Due to his age retcon, he is this to a lot of the cast, who are still teenagers.
- Jerk Jock: He's supposedly an aversion of this archetype, but his treatment of "carnists", especially Shawn, makes him come across as dickish in the eyes of detractors.
- Karma Houdini: Due to being a vegan character, he never has to face consequences for unjustly beating up Shawn.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: Rohit owns a white cat, while how kind he actually is considered debatable.
- Lovable Jock: Due to his status as a "vegan", he's seen by the narrative and other vegans as a compassionate person, who cares deeply for animals and practices non-violence. However, his mean spirited and sometimes even violent behavior towards the omnivores (the most notable example being the time when he clocks Shawn after being provoked into it by Dolly) can make him come across as an inverted example.
- Mr. Fanservice: He often wears sleeveless shirts which expose his well-toned muscles.
- Muscles Are Meaningful: He manages to deliver a a single knock out to Shawn in a boxing competition between them.
- Older Than He Looks: He's 33 and looks as young as the teenage characters.
- A Real Man Is a Killer: Inverted with him, he believes killing animals is an example of picking on the weak.
- Real Men Eat Meat: Inverted like with the trope above, since he sees eating meat as cowardly and barbaric.
- Religious Bruiser: Rohit is described on his earlier character bio as a Hindu bodybuilder who "supports the original form of Hinduism, where non-violence towards all creatures is the key."
- Ship Tease: Seems to be involved with Plausibell, going by one strip where they are engaged.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: His shirts are generally sleeveless.
- Would Hurt a Child: Since he has been retconned to be 33 years old, this means all the times he's beaten up Shawn were essentially him injuring a minor.
- Younger Than He Looks: Before he was aged up, Rohit was originally stated to be 18 years old.
LilithA cynical vegan that occasionally appears whenever the comic needs a good dash of misanthropy.
- Ax-Crazy: Not as much as Sterk, but she in on strip subjected a "carnist" to a Fate Worse than Death before he was eaten by lions and all she got was a light scolding from Legua.
- The Bus Came Back: She came back into the series in Pupa Vegan Purple.
- The Cynic: Seen as less optimistic about the world than the other vegans.
- Deadpan Snarker: Has definitely had her snarky moments.◊
- Darkness Von Gothick Name: Changed her name to "Lilith" from the cheerful "Lily."
- Embarrassing First Name: Lilith hates her real name "Lily", and changed it as a result.
- Goth: A gloomy vegan who wears dark clothing and has streaked hair.
- Horned Hairdo: Just like Raziel, Lilith in her redesign sports a pair.
- Informed Ability: She is supposed to know martial arts, but we never see her use it.
- Karma Houdini: She never faces any punishment for her occasional violence against non-vegans, especially the aforementioned incident with giving a "carnist" a Fate Worse than Death.
- Out of Focus: Only appeared in one strip in Vegventures, and didn't appear in Pupa Vegan until the purple edition.
- Pointy Ears: Sports a pair after her reappearance in Pupa Vegan.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Diva, who hates her snarky attitude.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: She and Plausibell are supposed to argue a lot due to her support of Sanc, the animal liberator, who is "too extreme" even for the latter. Like most of the characterization in the series, this is actually not shown at all and they treat each other equally civilly.
- You Don't Look Like You: Her Pupa Vegan design is substantially different from her old one, with the gothic aesthetic the only trait carried over.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Hers is purple with neon green streaks.
Dashling/Dazz LingAn infrequently appearing vegan cook.
- Anime Chinese Girl: Definitely looks the part, with her clothes and insane pigtails.
- As Long as It Sounds Foreign: While Ling is an actual Chinese name, her previous name Dashling isn't. This is in part because Yerdian mistook "dashling" as the spelling "dazzling".
- Punny Name: Her current name "Dazz Ling"(Dazzling).
- Sudden Name Change: Downplayed. She keeps the Ling part of her name, but the first part "Dash" is changed to Dazz and separated from the second part.
- Supreme Chef: Cooks organic vegan meals that cater to every known food allergy and "[make] even hardcore carnists like Shawn succumb".
- Team Chef: To the vegans.
RazielA misanthropic vegan that dislikes the other vegans for being "too soft."
- Angelic Beauty: She's an unusual case of a very attractive half-angel.
- Anti-Hero: A rare example of a designated one. She hates even her fellow vegans for being too nice, but is still treated as a sympathetic character.
- Ax-Crazy: She isn't a Serial Killer like Sterk, but she's not above wishing and encouraging harm towards omnivores. In one instance, she gleefully supports Lilith giving a faceless "carnist" a Cool and Unusual Punishment. In a later strip, we actually see her straight up murder someone for the first time ever, just because he made an anti-vegan joke.
- The Bus Came Back: After being gone for most of the early Pupa Vegan series, she finally came back in Pupa Vegan Black and Pink.
- Character Focus: In Pupa Vegan Black, she is made the main character.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Like Sterk, she is supposed to be an example of this trope from the series's narrative, but comes off as the opposite to non-extreme vegan readers.
- Half-Human Hybrid: She is half-angel.
- Holy Halo: An ironic instance, and paired with her horn-shaped hair, especially since she is supposed to be a half-angel
- Horned Hairdo: Supposed to be a subverted case of this trope, due to being supposedly an anti-heroine vegan, as opposed to a straight up villain.
- Informed Loner: A less obvious one than Sterk. However, she's supposed to not even like most of the other vegans...but her role in the comics is nearly indistinguishable from that of Brie/Plausibell.
- Karma Houdini: Like every vegan character in the series, she never gets punished for her more appalling actions, which includes murdering people for coming up with ideas for killing chickens and making anti-vegan jokes.
- Meaningful Name: She is named after an archangel found in Jewish mysticism, who is called "Keeper of Secrets" and the "Angel of Mysteries".Very fitting for a (half) angel character like her.
- Misanthrope Supreme: Raziel not only views omnivores as "parasitic," and hunters in particular as "oppressors" who should all die...but even hates the other vegan characters for being too "peaceful." The narrative nonetheless treats her as a sympathetic character.
- Mission from God: Apparently she is supposed to be on one from God and her father to save humanity, but her interactions with non-vegan humans have made her less enthusiastic about helping them and doesn't mind the idea of them being killed off.
- Oral Fixation: Always has a lollipop in her mouth when she appears.
- Our Angels Are Different: In Pupa Vegan Black 451, she is confirmed to be a a half-angel, who has a father that sent her to earth to stop Satan and his demons, including Sterk from destroying humanity. After seeing humans killing animals for food, she decides that Satan is right for trying to destroy them.
- Winged Humanoid: Used to have wings, until they dissolved so she could fit in better with humans.
CherryThe younger sister of Brie/Plausibell and Shawn, she is a young girl being raised vegan.
- Ascended Extra: She first appeared in Pupa Vegan Red as just another side character, while her big sister was still the main vegan protagonist. However, after that she seems to have replaced the spot Brie/Plausibell occupied.
- Cain and Abel: The Abel to Shawn's Cain, though not to the extent of her older sister.
- Cheerful Child: Often seen smiling.
- Cool Pet: Owns a flock of chickens that she "rescued" from the egg industry.
- Disappeared Dad: Her father abandoned the family after leaving them in debt and running off with a younger woman.
- From the Mouths of Babes: In one strip, where she yells, "Sex", as a Shout-Out to a vegan meme.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Averted, she gets along great with her vegan sister Plausibell. Better than with her omnivorous brother, anyway.
- Little Miss Snarker: Like her sister in the beginning of the series, she possesses a sarcastic side whenever she is interacting with an omnivore.
- Mega Twintails: Has two gigantic pigtails.
- Older Than She Looks: Even though her confirmed age is 11 years old, she looks like she could be 5 or 6 instead.
- Pint-Sized Kid: Downplayed. The art style does make her look younger than her confirmed age, but she also comes up to the other character's chest at least.
- Precocious Crush: She appears smitten with the Fictional Counterpart of George Martin.
- Selfless Wish: In Pupa Vegan 644, while Diva is rambling about spending stuff on herself if she won the lottery, she wishes to open up a sanctuary for rescued animals.
- Shared Family Quirks: She shares her sister's vegan lifestyle and vocalness.
- Token Mini-Moe: She is the only prepubescent character among the vegans.
- Virgin in a White Dress: She the youngest character and is always seen in a white dress, presumably to represent her innocence.
- Women Are Wiser: Just her older sister, the narrative treats her as being smarter, rational, and mature than her brother, Shawn, even though she is younger than him.
AzusaA vegan introduced in the Pupa Vegan comics.
- Bishōnen: In contrast with Rohit's rugged manliness, he has a thinner, more feminine build.
- Eyes Always Shut: Has only been seen with his eyes shut.
- Facial Markings: Has some on his forehead and under his eyes. What purpose they serve is currently unknown.
- Friendly Enemy: Implied; Diva let him touch her shoulder,◊ indicating that the two are at least on somewhat friendly terms with each other.
- Gender-Blender Name: His name is typically used for Japanese women.
- Nice Guy: Downplayed. He's one of the genuinely nice vegans, however, he still has that condescending intolerance◊ that the others have.

Older BongoAnother vegan that debuted in Pupa Vegan. He used to be an omnivore when he was younger, but later converted to veganism. He and his younger self are inexplicably shown together in the series.

LuluA black vegan who debuted in Pupa Vegan. She is also Shawn's ex-girlfriend.
- Big Eater: She is shown munching on a giant dragonfruit in Pupa Vegan Black 467.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: While not as bad as Legua and Plausibell, she still has a particularly questionable moment where she tried to ruin her ex's relationship with a Legua, because she thought she was protecting her.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even though she shares the usual extremist beliefs of the other vegans, she is visibly disturbed by Raziel's violent actions.
- Kick the Dog: Her mentioned attempts to break up Legua and Shawn was a low move for her, even though she claims she did in the name of protecting the former.
- Only Sane Woman: In Pupa Vegan Black, where she gets to share the spotlight with people like Raziel. She spends a good chunk of time being horrified by the other characters' actions.
- Relationship Sabotage: She tried to break up Legua and Shawn when they were together, because she felt she was trying to protect her.

- We Used to Be Friends: She used to be Shawn's girlfriend, until she was influenced by his sister to become vegan and dumped him, due to his "toxic" behavior regarding her choice.
BunnyA bunny suit wearing vegan who debuted in the Pupa Vegan series. Even though she is a vegan, she is considered an antagonist for being an "apologist" for non-vegans to eat meat.
- Attention Whore: She is portrayed as one in-universe for believing that it's counterproductive to chastise non-vegans for eating meat, so it's better to just respect and validate their choice. Of course, this rational is treated as just wanting recognition from omnivores.''' I'm a vegan, but I'm not one of "those" vegans. I don't kill animals myself, but I respect other people's choice to do so. Telling them to stop killing is counterproductive. You catch more flies with sugar than honey.'"
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Like Bindiya, she is a genuine nice character, who is treated like a straight trope of this due to her being an "straw apologist" that tolerates other people eating animal products.
- Blush Sticker: She sports two permanent ones.
- Bunnies for Cuteness: An adorable girl who wears a bunny suit.
- Category Traitor: She is considered this, due to respecting non-vegans' right to eat animals.
- Cute Is Evil: Despite being adorable and friendly, she is considered in-universe as evil for not treating "carnism" as "heinous".
- Insane Troll Logic: In-universe, her justifications for letting people choose to be vegan or remain omnivores and not preaching is construed as this.
- Light Is Not Good: She wears an adorable bunny outfit, while sporting a cutesy smile. However, from the narrative's standpoint, she is this due to being an apologist for meat eaters.
- Meaningful Appearance: She wears a bunny costume, due to the aforementioned label for "apologist" vegans explained below.
- Meaningful Name: Yerdian named her after "fluffy bunnies"- a term coined by the founder of the group Carnists Say The Darnest Things for apologist vegans. She also wears a bunny costume that goes with her name.
- Nice Girl: From a meta perspective she is a straight example, due to being the only vegan character, who is tolerant of non-vegan lifestyles.
- Pink Is Feminine: She wears an adorably pink bunny suit to fit her name.
- Punished for Sympathy: Due to being tolerant of non-vegans, she is treated as an antagonist character.
- Visual Pun: She wears a bunny outfit, while being a so-called "speciest" vegan.
SancAn animal liberator that was mentioned many times beforehand in the series, before finally physically appearing in Pupa Vegan Black. He is also Lilith's brother.
- Ambiguously Brown: He is portrayed as tanned like the Indian characters (Legua, Rohit, and Bindiya), but is the brother of the very pale goth, Lilith.
- Anti-Hero: Like Raziel, he is a rare example of a designated one. Even though he is described as a nutjob, he is still seen as a hero for trying to "free" animals from "slavery".
- Chick Magnet: His first appearance has him being fawned over by Diva, until she finds out that he's an animal liberator. Legua has been shown to be heavily infatuated with him.
- Mr. Fanservice: He's a well-tanned, tall, and dark haired man, who likes to expose his chest to the world.
- Oral Fixation: He's always seen with a jalapeno or piece of wheat in his mouth.
- Ship Tease: He gets this with Legua, who in early comics is often seen fawning over him. They are even featured together on the Vegan Artbook Hot, being intimately close to one another. In Pupa Vegan Black, Diva is at first infatuated with him (believing he frees victims of human trafficking), until she finds out he's an animal liberator.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He plays the archetype straight.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: He's always wearing his shirt open, which shows off his well-toned, muscled body.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: As an animal liberator, he is unapologetic about his actions, especially if it exposes the "supposed" hypocrisy people have about animals.
- Younger Than They Look: While Sanc looks like he could be in his mid to later 20s or even early 30's, he's actually only 18 years old.
- Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Zigzagged example: Although he is considered extreme by Yerdian, the narrative still treats him as a sympathetic character, who is liberating animals from so-called abuse.
Sonia SaeThe Fictional Counterpart of the real Sonia Sae, who made her pet fennec, Jumanji, become vegan.
- Beauty = Goodness: In contrast with her rival, she is depicted as a cute chibified version of herself.
- Granola Girl: She takes it one step further and even makes her carnivorous pet go vegan.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She's a very beautiful young woman with light skin and dark hair like her real life counterpart.
- Tender Tears: Sheds them whenever she sees animals being killed for meat.
Tropes Common To All:
- Anti Role Models: All of the named characters among their number, especially Shawn and Cuntons, are given given numerous negative traits (or at least Informed Flaws) in order to make it look as if omnivores are morally bankrupt by definition.
- The Hedonist: The series frames them as basing their moral rationale behind eating meat on their own personal satisfaction, without any consideration for the lives of animals or the environment.
- Insistent Terminology: They're rarely referred to as anything except "carnists," aside from the occasional designation as "omnifails" or "anti-vegans."
- Knife Nut: Often shown wielding knives when they are killing animals, in order to make it seem that they are inherently violent.
- Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: They are unintended to come cross as this, but many detractors of the series see them as be unfairly villanized for believing it's their right to eat meat. Even when they are depicted as being Knife Nuts and immoral, many readers find them to be more sympathetic and likable than the supposed "heroes".
- Straw Vegetarian: Inverted; they're straw-omnivores who are framed as amoral, callous, self-absorbed, ignorant, and hedonistic for not being vegan.
ShawnThe most frequently appearing "carnist." The meat loving brother of Plausibell and Cherry, his status as a hardcore meat eater in a webcomic about veganism makes him a primary antagonist. Those that hate the comic, however, tend to root for him.
- Abhorrent Admirer: Is this towards Legua, since she is a vegan with a distaste for omnivores like him.
- All Love Is Unrequited: Again, his crush on Legua is unrequited.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: The comic certainly treats him as this trope, due to butting heads with his big sister over her veganism.
- Arch-Enemy: To his older sister, Plausibell.
- Atheism: He's been confirmed to be one, even though he has used religious arguments to justify eating meat.
- Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Despite being treated as a villain, Yerdian actually acknowledges that deep down he cares for his older sister.
- Bastard Boyfriend: Major reason for his breakup with Lulu is that he supposedly "bullied" her into leaving with his "toxic" behavior.
- Beauty = Goodness: Subverted; he is attractive, but the narrative certainly doesn't treat him as sympathetic.
- Big Brother Bully: Like with the Annoying Younger Sibling entry above, he's also treated as this when he teases or argues with Cherry's vegan lifestyle.
- Big Eater: Is often portrayed as having a monstrous appetite, to the point he can be seen emptying a whole fridge.
- Bishōnen: Is quite handsome, oddly enough.
- Black Sheep: Due to still being a practicing omnivore, he is considered this in comparison with his vegan sisters and mother.
- Born Unlucky: He's never had any success in his life; his dad bailed on the family and left them in debt, his first girlfriend and crush dumped him when they became vegan, he's regularly mistreated by the vegan characters, and always treated as being wrong(even when he's right).
- Break the Haughty: Whenever he gets too cocky (which is basically every time he appears), he usually gets a harsh wake up call, that leaves him rebuked, ridiculed, mistreated, or physically injured by the protagonists.
- Although in many cases, it's less justified when he has a stronger, valid argument and the narrative just punishes him for being an omnivore and daring to have the opposite opinion of everyone else .
- The Bully: Supposedly bullied vegans alongside Dolly before her Hazy Feel Turn. In practice, he's more likely to be a victim, what with the vegans making fun of him or outright assaulting him on a regular basis.
- Butt-Monkey: And how! He gets the most amount of abuse out of all the "carnists." Just to give a brief sampler: he's been assaulted by the vegans for affronts that range from "saying something wrongheaded" to "giving Sterk an excuse to be apathetic," had most of his dinner stolen by the vegans for refusing to eat fake meat, got fat and sick trying to show up Lilith by eating more meat, was made a mockery of for apparently being allergic to some vegan staple or another, and failed a biology test for pointing out that humans are omnivores (if mainly because this apparently required making bizarre physiological claims and advocating "needless violence" without irony). Poor guy...
- Cain and Abel: As mentioned in Plausibell's section, he plays the Cain to her Abel. He is also a Cain towards Cherry, his younger sister.
- Chew Toy: This strip◊ roughly sums up the entire apparent purpose of Shawn's existence.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Will perv on Legua, but he has called out an unsolicited postcard depicting a naked woman with several babies, saying it objectified women. Being a Designated Villain, the narrative treats him as more of a Handsome Lech, even twisting the postcard incident to make him seem like a hypocritical ass.
- The Complainer Is Always Wrong: Poor Shawn. He really should find a better group of friends.
- Costume Evolution: His main outfit changes in each iteration of the comic.
- Crush Blush: Tends to get this around Legua, particularly when she gets close to him.
- Disappeared Dad: His dad ditched the family after leaving them in debt, while running off with a younger woman.
- Disappointing Older Sibling: To Cherry, due to being a meat eater.
- Dumb Blonde: Is one of the few blondes in the series, and Yerdian has outright described him as "stupid." He's always treated by the narrative as being ignorant (even when he's actually right).
- Everyone Has Standards: Downplayed; despite being portrayed as the idiotic antagonist of the strip, not even he took Cuntons' accusations against Kishna seriously, though that was only after seeing how minor they were.
- Fanboy: Implied to be one of Pokémon and Super Mario Bros. in this strip, where the hallucinated Pirhana Plant says he has played way too much of both of those games.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Shawn is portrayed as the more foolish sibling compared to Brie/Plausibell, due to being a straw "carnist" whose only defense is that he just doesn't want to give up bacon.
- Freudian Excuse: Shawn hates veganism (or Yerdian insists that he does, anyhow) because he believes his sister converting his crush to it ruined his chances with her. His first girlfriend,Lulu, also broke up with him when she joined Brie/Plausibell's cause.
- Green-Eyed Monster: In one comic, it shows Shawn is jealous of Legua's unseen crush, Sanc.
- He is also this to his sister, due to the fact that she's much more successful than him in life.
- Hates Being Alone: Tried to keep Legua away from Plausibell and veganism due to fearing that she would leave him alone. Also, during the barn fire arc, he repeatedly tried to join in Legua and Dolly's conversation after they started ignoring him, indicating a need to have his presence recognized.
- Hopeless Suitor: To Legua, due to the fact that she's a vegan, who distanced herself from him for being an omnivore, and being infatuated with Sanc.
- Hypocrite: He's willing to justify his meat-eating habits using religious arguments even though he's an atheist.
- Ignored Aesop: The lessons Shawn learns about veganism never stick. Most readers prefer it that way.
- It's All About Me: He's framed as a selfish Jerkass, who doesn't care about animals or the planet just because he refuses to give up eating animal products.
- Lazy Bum: Yerdian describes Shawn as being a lazy teen, who sits in front of his television all day eating chips and bacon. However, this trait is not really displayed in the comics itself. In fact, he was shown doing a large amount of yard work in one day,◊ and still having the energy to climb a tree afterwards.
- Light Is Not Good: He's the only recurring blond male character (as contrasted with Rohit, Sterk, and the off-screen Sanc, all of whom are dark-haired), tends to wear paler colors, and is meant to be viewed as this. However, non-vegan readers (and, for that matter, most vegan readers less militant than Yerdian) are more likely to view him as unjustly labeled a villain due to his dietary preferences.
- Limited Wardrobe: Averted in Vegan Artbook and Vegventures, where he was seen wearing multiple different outfits.
- Love Hurts: Just like everything else in his life, Shawn has been burnt hard in the love department. Both his girlfriend and crush rejected him after they became vegan, which contributed to his hatred of veganism.
- Mistaken for Gay: When Shawn was trying to troll Brie by showing off his new leather pants and coat, she responds by saying that he's trying to come out of the closet.
- Never My Fault: The narrative treats Shawn blaming his older sister for Lulu breaking up with him as this, and not him "supposedly" bullying her when she converted to veganism.
- Pet the Dog: Even though Shawn is continually treated as being "morally bankrupt"- due to not being a vegan, he can from time to time show he cares about others and animals. A notable example is when he goes out for a ride, he made sure to dodge a dog that was in his way◊.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Whenever the plot so demands, he'll display an Entitled to Have You attitude towards Legua, body-shame the female characters or compare them to bacon, and otherwise act like a sexist creep. And then, there's the time when he panicked and got rid of an outfit because Brie/Plausibell insinuated that it made him look gay.
- In one case of Informed Wrongness, Shawn's criticism about respecting people's choices and not forcing them into being vegan (by contrasting how some try to force gay people to be straight), is misconstrued as comparing systematic violence and destruction of the habitat to being gay.
- Shonen Hair: His hair is spikier than anything one could get in real life without copious amounts of hair gel.
- Sibling Rivalry: With Plausibell, due to their differing diets.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: As seen in Plausibell's entry, he has this dynamic with her.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: His default outfit in Pupa Vegan purple edition sees him sporting a sleeveless shirt.
- Smug Snake: Tends to be smirking at the start of his appearances.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Bacon. Shawn will not shut up about the stuff, and considers its mere existence a reason to not go vegan.
- Troll: Shawn is sometimes shown trolling his sister and other vegans with comments ranging from talking about his love for meat to jokes poking fun at veganism. Predictably, he's invariably treated as being bad at it.
- Villainous Crush: Has one on Legua.
- We Used to Be Friends: He and Legua used to be very close, before the latter distanced herself from him after embracing veganism. Of course this being Shawn, the narrative doesn't give him any sympathy for losing his bond with Legua due to being a "carnist".
- In addition, the fact that he and Dolly apparently used to bully vegans together (despite never doing so on-screen) implies that the two of them were also good friends before Dolly went vegan. That makes two friends he has lost to veganism, and no sympathy from any of the vegans. No wonder he seems to loathe veganism.
- His first girlfriend was Lulu, who dumped him for after she was inspired by Plausibell to become vegan. While the narrative blames him solely for the breakup due to his alleged "toxic unsupportive" behavior, given how the later two cut ties with him after they were influenced by Plausibell, it's not hard to think he might be right.
DivaDolly's sister, a somewhat snobbish "carnist."
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Subverted; Diva at first was infatuated with Sanc, due to him appearing to be busting human trafficking operations, but turned on him once she realizes he's an animal liberator.
- Alpha Bitch: Depicted as this, due to being a bit of a snob towards the vegans
- Beauty = Goodness: Subverted, since while she is considered an antagonist, she is quite pretty. How evil she is is up for debate.
- Cain and Abel: The Cain to Dolly's Abel, due to being a "carnist," and therefore, evil.
- Costume Evolution: Like Shawn, she gets a new outfit with each new series, or color change during Pupa Vegan.
- Drama Queen: While the narrative treats her as one, the defining instance of this trait is when she says that she still got iron deficiency from doing a vegan diet right. While in Real Life this would indicate an issue with processing non-heme iron, this is treated as this trope rather than an actual health issue.
- Evil Redhead: The most prominent redhead in the series and is designated as a villain for being an omnivore.
- Farm Boy: Gender inverted; Diva works on her uncle's animal farm, despite not looking the part. She's never seen working on it on screen, however.
- The Fashionista: Diva cares deeply about her looks, and always looks nice.
- Friendly Enemy: Although usually one sided on her part, out of all the "carnists" she is often the most friendly towards the vegans, and at times can be empathetic towards them.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: While Dolly is a vegan that looks down on "carnists," Diva is an omnivore that would really like the vegans to leave her alone.
- Innocently Insensitive: The narrative treats her describing all the meat and egg based food she had while Legua is listening-which drives her to tears, as this since she's an avid vegan.
- It's All About Me: Like every non-vegan in the series, she is portrayed as being inherently selfish in comparison with the vegans. In one strip, she greedily muses that if she won the lottery she would spend it on luxurious things for herself, in contrast with Cherry, who dreams of opening up a sanctuary to rescue animals.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While she is painted to be a villain, many of the comic's detractors find her to be a good person at heart, even if she can be a bit snobby and rude. It also helps that she often decries the wrongs facing the world (even though the comic treats her as a Straw Hypocrite for not being vegan), and tries to find some middle ground with the vegan characters.
- Lady in Red: Was shown wearing red in the Vegventure comics.
- Lovable Alpha Bitch: An unintentional example; while the narrative sees her as a bona fide Alpha Bitch, the comic's critics see her as a likeable character, simply for calling out the vegans when they spew crap. Sometimes she tries to extend an olive branch to them or even shows interest in the welfare of animals. One example includes where she actually tries to console Dolly after hearing about the fire trend, then states that meat eaters do care about animals and that she hoped that someone could have rescued the livestock that was burned in the fire.
- Make-Up Is Evil: Wears a lot of non-vegan makeup.
- Meaningful Name: Diva is seen as a bit of a drama queen.
- Nice Hat: Always seen wearing a large red one in Vegventures, and ambiguously colored ones in Pupa Vegan.
- Peer Pressure Makes You Evil: One of the reasons why Diva says she wouldn't go vegan is due to not wanting to be judged by her friends.
- Ship Tease: She at first fangirled over Sanc for his looks (and seemingly being an anti-human trafficker), until he reveals he's actually an animal liberator and she turns on him.
- Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has a great distaste for Lilith's snarky attitude.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: For her sister before her Hazy Feel Turn.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Burgers, which proves how eeevil she is!
Cuntons/Maura ClemmonsUsed to be named Cuntons, but became a straight up Fictional Counterpart of Maura Clemmons- a woman that was allegedly accused of stalking the author. An ugly (later upgraded to average looking) "carnist" who apparently has stalked Plausibell on the internet in an attempt to get her to quit talking about veganism, not that we ever see any evidence of this.
- Arch-Enemy: To Plausibell and later the author, when she just became a straight up Fictional Counterpart.
- The Bus Came Back: After not appearing for a while, a silhouette of what looks like Cuntons/Clemmons shows up in a strip that talks about Yerdian's encounter with trolls and her alleged stalker. Given the story behind the very existence of the character (suffice to say that a Wounded Gazelle Gambit was involved), this was likely deliberate.
- Country Matters: It's right in her former name, no doubt put there by a salty Priya.
- Cruella to Animals: Wears a hat made of a wolf's head because she irrationally hates wolves.
- Evil Makes You Ugly: She has bad skin, discolored and bucktoothed teeth, jaundiced eyes, an odd nose, and a potbelly. The discoloring, bad skin, and weight are implied to be the result of eating meat; her nose and buckteeth can't be attributed to that, so they're more likely just products of Yerdian's spite. However, see below for Progressively Prettier, where she becomes less hard on the eyes.
- Fat Girl: The third fattest character in her predesign, and implied to be that way due to her omnivorous diet. She slims down a bit in her official debut in Pupa Vegan.
- Fat Slob: Did you think being an overweight "carnist" would be shown in a positive light in the freaking ''Vegan Art Book? However, when she is reintroduced into the series, she has slimmed down quite a bit.
- Fictional Counterpart: Originally thought to just be based on Maura, she is revealed to have been upgraded to this when she is no longer called Cuntons and just her real life version's name.
- For the Evulz: The only reason given for why she supposedly hates wolves.
- Gonk: See the above entry on Evil Makes You Ugly.
- Hate Sink: No doubt intended to be one. Ironically, she's actually become a bit of an Ensemble Dark Horse to the webcomic's critics.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: Loves cats, even though she's never seen with one on-screen. Since we can't have a sympathetic "carnist" anywhere in the Vegan Art Book, this is twisted to make her a hypocritical specieist.
- Meaningful Name: Her former fictional counterpart's last name was supposed to be an accurate description of her character, unless one actually believes in Yerdian's account.
- Nice Hat: Regardless of its origins, that wolf head hat looks pretty darn badass.
- Progressively Prettier: When she finally made her official debut in Pupa Vegan, she had lost her acne, odd eyes, and pot belly.
- Running Gag: A new running gag with her is her trying to disprove Yerdian's credibility with weak substance, which is based on real (but distorted) arguments commonly seen against her.
- Sudden Name Change: In the Pupa Veg books, she was changed from Cuntons to her real life counterpart's name.
- Stalker Without a Crush: According to her earlier character profiles, she stalked and hacked Brie/Plausibell in order to stop her vegan activism. However, none of this is shown in comic, and it comes off as an Informed Flaw. When she's later introduced as the Fictional Counterpart of Priya's alleged stalker, she focuses her attentions on her.
- Unfortunate Name: Before she became a Fictional Counterpart of Clemmons, she was referred to by the aforementioned Cuntons.
ChanelA "carnist" classmate of Legua and Dolly that appeared in Vegventures and has since dissappeared from the comic.
- Alpha Bitch: Except for the looks department, she plays this trope very straight when it's actually demonstrated on-screen.
- Evil Makes You Ugly: Pimply and bucktoothed.
- Hate Sink: Like Cuntons, she is very much intended to be one (including being a big racist and lacking empathy for others). This is best displayed in the barnfire arc, where in contrast with Diva sympathizing with the vegans (and showing concern over the animals), she cares little for the livestock that died in the fire and believes their existence is to serve the purposes of mankind, otherwise they are worthless. In addition to that, she is depicted as a hedonistic party girl who has Skewed Priorities.
- It's All About Me: Described as only thinking about herself, while dismissing others' suffering (both animal and human). This can be been seen during the barnfire trend arc, where she couldn't care less about the animals that died and is more concerned about a party she is going to get drunk at.
- Informed Flaw: She is supposed to be racist and unsympathetic towards the downtrodden, but she has never actually displayed any of those traits on-screen, except for the latter in the barnyard fire comics-where she doesn't care about the fate of the barnyard animals killed and believes they are worthless if they don't serve humans. She even in on strip pointed out how it wasn't feasible for poor people to maintain a vegan diet.
- Lack of Empathy: According to Yerdian, she was heartless enough to balk at a charity fighting child labor and declare,I don't care little children have to work themselves to death! If that makes my coat and t-shirts even 1 euro cheaper, it's worth it! Fuck petitions against child slave labor!
- The best seen on-screen example is her callous reaction to the animals killed in the fires.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: She is described as a racist, who "mocks foreigners unprovoked" (especially Muslims and black people). However, so far in the comics, this has never been seen.
- Rich Bitch: Given her "supposed" obsession with clothes and the latest phones, she seems to be from a well-off family.
- Short Hair with Tail: Her ponytail is shorter than most instances of this trope.
- Skewed Priorities:
EliseMike and Tommy's mother who has raised them on unhealthy junk food, which has made them overweight and have self-esteem problems.
- Hypocrite: Doesn't allow Rohit's cat to eat a burger (citing it's unhealthy for it), but feeds it to her son.
- Maternally Challenged: Downplayed. While she is a nice person, she still fed her children an unhealthy diet.
TommyMike's younger brother, who is overweight and is addicted to junkfood due to his mother's irresponsible caregiving.
- Big Eater: He eats of lot of processed food that contributes to his weight.
- Disappeared Dad: His father isn't mentioned anywhere.
- Fat Slob: See his entry for Gonk and Big Eater.
- Gonk: In contrast with his sister, his heftiness is depicted as grotesque; he's wider than he's tall, shapeless, gelatinous-looking, and has a nose resembling a pig's snout.
- Momma's Boy: He's very coddled by his mother, as a result eats whatever she gives him.
- Nice Hat: He is shown wearing a propeller hat.
- Shared Family Quirks: He shares his sister's heftiness and love of junk food.
Alice Natanya MooreThe fictional depiction of Alice Natanya Moore, who led an online campaign against Sonia Sae for putting Jumaji the Fennec Fox on a vegan diet. She wears glasses and a tag on her head that says something differently in each book. She is often seen throwing tantrums when arguing with the vegans.
- Arch-Enemy: To Sonia Sae, based on the real feud between them.
- Beauty = Goodness: In contrast with how cute the fictional counterpart of Sonia Sae is depicted, Alice's is much more kiddish and plain.
- Back from the Dead: After being unceremoniously dumped into a meat grinder, she is seen in future comics no worse for the wear.
- The Complainer Is Always Wrong: Just like with Shawn and the other vegans, she is automatically treated as being wrong because she's non-vegan. Her campaign against Sonia Sae is treated as vicious slander based on baseless claims of abuse, when she has good reasons to be concerned about someone feeding a carnivorous animals a vegan diet, which could potentially put their health at risk.
- Evil Is Petty: The "supposed" reason for her campaign again Sonia Sae is she lost an argument about veganism against her. Due the narrative's moral stance, this makes her an example of this trope.
- Fictional Counterpart: She's an unflattering caricature of the real Alice Natanya Moore.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: She regularly wears glasses and is an omnivore, which makes her automatically "evil" in the comic's point of view.
- Malicious Slander: In her character page in Pupa Vegan Purple, she is described as spreading "fake news" against Sonia Sae for abusing her pet Jumanji by feeding him a vegan diet, just to get back at her for losing an argument about veganism.
- Manchild: She's constantly portrayed as throwing tantrums like a little kid when she is arguing with the the vegan characters.
- Otaku: Assuming her previous "Weeb" hairclip accurately describes her and isn't just an insulting title given to her by Priya.
Younger BongoHe is the younger version of the present Bongo.
- Bishōnen: He looks great considering he's an antagonist.
- Fascinating Eyebrow: He does this when arguing with vegans, most likely to show his smugness before his arguments are shot down.
- Friendly Enemy: He has zero problems with veganism in general.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His hair is slightly longer than shoulder length, in contrast with his brother's short hair.
- My Future Self and Me: He regularly interacts (and argues) with his older self.
- Nice Guy: Perhaps the nicest character in the comic. He rarely loses his temper, and explicitly states that he has no problem with the vegans. The worst he does is occasionally act vaguely smug and, of course, eat meat.
"Nadia" BindiyaA deeply spiritualistic omnivore.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In contrast with how Brie/Plausibell and Legua are unintentional examples, Bindiya is supposed to be a straight one, due to believing one can cherish all life and still be a meat eater. From a non-extreme vegan meta view, this label can be seen as unwarranted.
- Churchgoing Villain: She is an omnivore who is devoutly religious, the former of which makes her a villain by the standards of the series.
- Facial Markings: A single dot on the forehead.
- Friendly Enemy: Like Diva, she tries to be friendly with the vegans, but they treat her with contempt due to her status as a omnivore.
- Hinduism: Implied, given her facial mark, which appears to be a bindi, and her use of the greeting "namaste."
- Hypocrite: Since she says she values all life, yet still eats animal products, she is portrayed as this.
- Last-Name Basis: Her full name is Nadia Bindiya, but she's only referred to as Bindiya in the comics, with her first name only revealed in a DeviantArt comment.
- Nice Girl: From a different perspective, she would be considered a straight example, especially since she tries to be friendly with the vegans. However, since she condones animal slaughter, she is treated as a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing.
- Token Minority: She's the only non-Caucasian member of the omnivores.
- Token Religious Teammate: For the omnivores.
- Twofer Token Minority: She is Indian, female, and implied to be a practicing non-vegan Hindu.
- Younger than She Looks: Comparing her to characters like Diva, who is 17, would you believe that she's only 14?
Uncle PimplesDiva and Dolly's uncle, who owns a dairy farm and is dressed up as a pimp.He appeared infrequently in the Vegan Artbook series.
- Adult Fear: His wife and child are killed in front of his eyes, just because The Sociopath he was talking to wanted to make a cruel point to him about it being okay to slaughter animals, since they are treated like family.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Depending how evil you actually see him, he still had a wife and child that he cared for and was distraught when Sterk killed them to make a cruel point. Not to mention the fact that he seems to have a good relationship with Diva, since she is said (not shown) to work on his farm.
- Evil Uncle: From the the lenses of the series, he's this to Dolly, who is a vegan. This is subverted for Diva, who is still an omnivore and works on his farm.
- Pimp Duds: Is dressed as a pimp in the series, in order to portray the dairy industry as comparable to sexual exploitation.
SterkAn edgelord loner found hanging out with the vegans. His only friend is Legua, which makes sense, since he has a nasty violent streak. He stopped appearing starting with the Vegventures comics. After being gone for so long, he was brought back by Yerdian in "Pupa Vegan", due to a voting contest that was held.
- Ax-Crazy: A very interesting example; he will kill a "carnist" at the drop of a hat. Thing is, he never raises his voice or anything when he does this. He is just eerily calm and controlled.
- Bad People Abuse Animals: Although normally he's been shown to kill humans in-story, just to make a point against eating meat. He has spread his cruelty to pets, in order to make a statement about "selective compassion". However, from the narrative's eye this still makes him a grey figure, and not a full blown villain.
- The Bus Came Back: After having not been seen since the "Vegan Artbook" comics, he was brought back into the series by demand.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Supposed to be this. His tendency to murder those who don't agree with him tends to make him the opposite to readers.
- Dissonant Serenity: Is incredibly calm in everything he does, from punching Shawn in the jaw◊ to murdering Uncle Pimple's innocent family in cold blood.
- Evil Wears Black: Wears all black and casually murders people. The narrative considers him a subversion, however.
- Hellbent For Leather: From his chest to his feet, he is decked in black leather, which emphasizes his edginess.
- Hypocrite: He's not a vegan, just an eco-terrorist who uses vegan rhetoric to justify his crimes. Moreover, he hates people who eat meat or any other animal product... despite wearing leather.
- Informed Loner: An early character page claimed that no one except Legua was willing to befriend him. However, none of the vegans ever seemed to have any problem with approaching him.
- Karma Houdini: Nothing is ever done about his horrible actions against non-vegans and on one occasion, pets, even if they disturbed his vegan friends.
- Our Demons Are Different: Confirmed as a demon in Pupa Vegan Black 451, where he is one of Satan's minions and is out to destroy humanity.
- Pointy Ears: Like Lilith, he sports a pair after his reappearance.
- Put on a Bus: He stopped appearing for a long while, after "Veganventures" began. See The Bus Came Back entry.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes and is definitely a dangerous fellow to hang out with.
- Serial Killer: In his Pupa Vegan Purple character page, it's even stated that he's a "ruthless serial killer", who uses any excuse to kill people. His favorite targets being omnivores, because he can use their arguments against them.
- The Sociopath: Again, he calmly murders people who disagree with him. Why isn't this guy in jail?
- Token Evil Teammate: Counts as this for the vegans, since he is not actually vegan, which is the main thing that makes a character good in this universe. There's also the fact that he kills people, but the comic tends to gloss over that.
- Troubled, but Cute: Fits every criteria of the archetype, although due to his violent tendencies he can be consider a dark version of this type of character.
- Would Hurt a Child: As seen with the murder of Uncle Pimple's family, children are not exempt from his bloodlust.
ScourgeA Grim Reaper like figure, who appeared in "Vegventures". He's supposed to be the incarnation of the meat industry.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: He's meant to represent the meat industry, and all of its "supposed" evils.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Being a straw incarnation of the meat industry, he openly revels in talking about how much he loves abusing animals and brainwashing people to be omnivores from childhood.
- The Corrupter: Playing to the series' stance on children being raised as omnivores, Scourge is portrayed as corrupting them into eating meat.
- Evil Gloating: He gleefully boasts usual straw omnivore talking points in order to betray him as a villain.
- The Grim Reaper: It's even lampshaded by Brie/Plausibell in his first appearance.
- Really 700 Years Old: He's said to be around for centuries. Justified since animal agriculture has been a thing since man became civilized.
