The Heroes

"I'm Vinesauce. I'm a laid-back type of person!"

A Laid-back Warrior (later an Imp, and then a Mage, afterwards gaining the ability to switch between any of the classes) and the main character of the story. Originally a simple traveler, he is thrust into adventure after a close encounter with the Dark Lord and a guardian spirit.

  • Author Avatar: He's based on Vinny himself in addition to being the main character.
  • Bash Brothers: Alongside LumberJahn. They have the highest relationship in the entire party, but Vinesauce gets little-to-no Ship Tease with him, unlike his relations with Sponge and Gordon.
  • Blade on a Stick: After Part 5, his weapon becomes forks, spears and trident-like weapons, as of result of becoming an Imp.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "Mahina Pea!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: He has to deal with Hotel Mario's odd personality and behavior, such as when Hotel Mario claimed he had the power to make it nighttime within six hours and Vinesauce pointed out that all that was happening was that the sun is setting.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Vinny confirmed in the final stream that Vinesauce's hatred of Vlinny caused Vlinny to become the Dark Curse in Miitopia, with Vlinny going between present-day Miitopia and Vinesauce Island in the past via a Stable Time Loop.
  • Damager, Healer, Tank: Is the damager in all his forms, at first being fully physical as a Warrior, a mix of physical and magical as an Imp, and more magic-focused as a Mage.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His weapon, perfect for a balanced heroic knight.
  • Honest John's Dealership: The uniform outfit he wears as an imp combined with the imp class itself leads to a negative comparison to used car salesmen.
  • Jack of All Stats: As a Warrior, he doesn't specialize strictly in offense or defense, having average strengths and no glaring weaknesses. Vinny lampshades this by saying that "[he'll] be boring" when selecting the class.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: After reaching the Dark Lord's castle Two Faced gets spooked out. Vinesauce (who turned back into a Warrior) said that she didn't have to fear anything since he was there to protect her, and proceeded to wink at her. He also happened to be wearing shining Silver Armor at the time.
  • Magic Knight: His imp class combines both magical and physical combat, in contrast to how his other classes only focus on one of the two.
  • Mellow Fellow: He describes himself as laid-back when introducing himself and is described as such by the game itself, making the in-game description of his personality more similar to that of his counterpart from the Tomodachi Collection corruption stream than his appearance in Tomodachi Life.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Even though this game has no text-to-speech, Vinny still pronounces Vinesauce as "vin-eh-sauce" in reference to Tomodachi Life's mispronunciation.
    • His war cry was chosen as a reference to Vinny's exaggerated readings of Lunala's "mahina-pea" cry during his Pokémon Moon streams, which are showcased in the second highlight video of those streams (the one on Southbird's YouTube channel instead of Vinny's main channel).
  • Mr. Fanservice: Some of the more inappropriate Imp attires in-game make him get a significant amount of fanservice-fueled fanart. Vinny doesn't hesitate to replace these sorts of outfits when possible.
  • Our Demons Are Different: After turning into an Imp, Vinny sprouts two green horns and wings. He seems to have control over darkness (as he can summon giant forks made of it) and seems to be able to fly for brief periods of time. However, he's still heroic.
  • Playing with Fire: He gains fire magic as a Mage.
\* Shock and Awe: When he becomes a Mage, Vinesauce learns a Lighting spell that deals splash damage to enemies adjacent to the ones he targets.

"I am not a happy puppy..."

A Cautious Cleric, and the first party member that the Guardian Spirit bestows upon Vinesauce. Sponge isn't happy as usual, but he's ready to help Vinesauce all the same.

  • Anti-Nihilist: In spite of his disposition, Sponge shows interest in using the calming fruit the party searches for to get rid of all the sadness in the world. He claims it's just a joke, but Vinny isn't convinced.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Monsters cause him to turn against the party in Nightmare Tower, though all it takes to undo this is a smack from Vinesauce. This incident receives a "What the fuck, Sponge!?" response from Vinny.
  • The Bus Came Back: He's the last of Vinesauce's party members to be rescued. In his case, his face is found on a living suit of armor.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "I'm not happy."
  • Celebrity Resemblance: Vinny thinks the long hair he gets in Part 2 makes him look like Ringo Starr, particularly as he looked when The Beatles made Abbey Road and Let It Be.
  • Compressed Hair: A conversation with Vinesauce leads to Sponge revealing that he has fairly long hair hidden under his hat. Back on Vineland Island, he was bald.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He gets mad at Two Faced after he trips over her, despite the fact that he couldn't see where he was going and she wasn't intentionally trying to trip him.
  • Drop the Hammer: While staves are what he usually wields, he's used a squeaky hammer as well.
  • The Eeyore: His sad disposition carries over from his previous appearances, particularly because of his "I'm not happy" war cry, though in this game a lot of his sadness is fueled by jealousy.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He gets jealous of anyone who gives gifts to other members of the party, though this hasn't caused any friendship breakdowns.
  • I See Dead People: He tells Gordon he saw a ghost and got scared when the two talk after Vinesauce's party reaches Nightmare Tower. After Gordon asks if this happens often, he acts surprised but doesn't explicitly doesn't say if it does, but Vinny points out the fact that he could see ghosts in Tomodachi Life.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • His "I'm not happy" war cry is the same as one of his catchphrases from Tomodachi Life.
    • Going by a travel conversation, this Sponge is able to see ghosts just like he could in Tomodachi Life.
  • Out of Focus: Out of all of the initial party members, he's the one that's hit the hardest with this due to him being the last party member rescued from the Dark Lord, resulting in the newer characters taking the spotlight.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He asks for Frilly Vestments in Part 2. Unlike when Gordon received a frilly, purple outfit, Vinny tried to make it a less feminine-looking color.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes turn red after monsters turn him against the party in Nightmare Tower.
  • Yandere: Shows signs of an unhealthy attraction to Vinesauce during character interactions.

"It's fucking raw!"

A Stubborn Chef, Gordon Ramsay is another returning Vinelander, now geared up and ready to cook some monsters.

  • Adaptation Name Change: His nickname was "ChefGordon" in Tomodachi Life. The "Chef" part was dropped in Miitopia.
  • Ascended Extra: Gordon was a late arrival to Vineland Island, but his huge popularity with Vinny and the viewers gave him an early spot in Miitopia.
  • Berserk Button: Just like on Vineland Island, he despises anything raw, including the monsters he fights. Two of his MP attacks involve lighting enemies on fire and the meals he uses to heal his allies are cooked beforehand.
  • The Bus Came Back: After he had been captured by the Dark Lord, Vinesauce's party finds his face attached to Cerberus.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "It's fucking raw!" Unlike Tomodachi Life, this game doesn't block swearing.
  • Chef of Iron: He fights just as well as the rest of the party, and even cooks in battle.
  • Fire-Breathing Diner: His hit-all attack involves this; he cooks extremely spicy food and gives it to a party member, causing them to spew flames on everything in front of them. This attack sometimes angers the person eating the food, though it happens less often than with the Tank class's Human Cannonball attack.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: His weapon. It's good for smacking enemies and cooking healing food mid-battle.
  • Playing with Fire: Two of his attacks involve fire: one where lights his frying pan on fire and then smacks an enemy with it, and one where he feeds an ally spicy food that makes them breathe fire to make them attack with said fire.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: One of his early outfits is frilly and light purple. This isn't the only unfitting outfit he gets.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: The choice of "It's fucking raw!" as his war cry leads to frequent profanity from him, and unlike in Tomodachi Life it's able to be spelled correctly due to the lack of a word filter.

    Two Faced 
"I always do my best!"

An Energetic Thief from Vineland Island. She acts much nicer than she normally does, but Vinny suspects her of wanting to steal more than just items.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Much more of a team player here in comparison to her attitude in later Tomodachi Life streams, though she can still be irrational. Vinny even comments that she gets along better with Vinesauce in Miitopia.
  • The Bus Came Back:
    • Vinesauce's party rescues her in Karkaton after the Dark Lord put her face on a golem.
    • The Reveal that Miitopia was a sequel all along means that Two Faced was never 'erased' like Vinny implied, and instead was simply evicted from the island after fighting Vlinny in the battle royale.
  • Catchphrase: Her war cry is "Walrus mmmmmm".
  • Devious Daggers: Her weapons as a swift thief is a knife or dagger of some sort. Fitting, given her questionable mental stability during Tomodachi Life, which Vinny comments on when one of her daggers ends up being made of wood.
  • The Ghost: Her war cry references Walrus from Tomodachi Life, who doesn't appear in Miitopia.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: When Vinesauce tells a spooky story during a campfire break, she gets so scared that it breaks her friendship with him (the other party members weren't disturbed at all). She gets abducted by Mike Love before the relationship can be patched; when Vinesauce retrieves her face several in-game months later, she's still mad at him.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Her starting outfit includes a pair of goggles with her hat, which she never uses.
  • Improbable Weapon User: One of her weapons is a fish, which confuses Vinny.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Vinny's dirty mind leads to her portrayal being lewder than the game intended, such as when Vinny told viewers not to overthink her desire for an HP Banana, the name of her "Booby Trap" skill, and missed dialogue leading to her "These things are huge! I can't fit one in my mouth!" quote looking like it's about something other than food.
  • Mythology Gag: Her "I always do my best" introduction quote ends up reminding Vinny of the "Do Your Best" song from his Super Mario Galaxy Repainted stream.
  • Rock Monster: When Vinesauce's party gets her face back, it's found on a golem.

    Hotel Mario 
"I'm not so sure about all this, but I'll try my hardest!"

An Airheaded Cat who encounters Vinny shortly after his party gets abducted by Dark Lord Mike Love. He's very different from the traditional Mario, since he's based on an infamous version of him.

  • Adaptation Name Change: He was just known as Mario originally, even though the real Mario isn't much like him. Poopers often refer to him as "Fat Mario" to differentiate him from other versions, akin to how Hotel Mario's Luigi is often called "Gay Luigi" due to a misheard line. Vinny chose to name him after his game.
  • Big "NO!": His "NO" line carries over from his game of origin.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer:
    • He's quirkier than any of the initial party, but he owns the game's inns and doesn't charge the party for them. According to Vinny he's also an incredibly smart businessman, which is why he somehow manages to put inns in such improbable places like deserts, inside a giant pyramid, various caves, near a fiery volcano, and the Dark Lord's castle.
    • The Cat class is the most ridiculous of the game's classes, especially for someone like Hotel Mario. This doesn't stop him from being a Glass Cannon who can deal massive single-target damage if he sharpens his claws.
  • The Bus Came Back: He's rescued in the Dark Lord's Tower after the Dark Lord puts his face on a demon.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "NO".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He digs in the sand of Neskdor Desert while dressed as a cat and thinks he has the power to make the sun set. He later tells Speed Luigi that he owns a diary for no reason and never considered actually using it.
  • The Ditz: Has the Airheaded personality. Humorously, this makes him more effective in combat, as he consistently deals extra damage by getting distracted and catching enemies off-guard.
  • Fallen-on-Hard-Times Job: Vinny believes that his inns aren't doing so well, so he has a side job as a nighttime stripper.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Initially. Vinny is shocked when the Guardian Spirit refers to Hotel Mario as "her" right after he joins (the Mii's creator had forgotten that the gender was set to female when the QR Code was made). While Vinny cracks a few jokes about it, he quickly sets his gender to Male to "stick with the pre-established Hotel Mario lore".
  • Long-Lost Relative: Vinny reveals both Hotel Mario and Speed Luigi were separated from each other at the age of three. Which justifies why despite being related they have no connection with each other when they finally meet.
  • Meaningful Name: The "Hotel" part of his name refers to his status as the owner of the game's inns.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • His Cat class brings to mind the Cat Suit the original Mario can wear in Super Mario 3D World.
    • His "NO" war cry is a reference to a Hotel Mario quote that's commonly used in YouTube Poops based on that game.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: He loves the feeling of sweat around his body and dances around happily when while the faces of the people of Neksdor are placed on monsters.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: His "Playful Antics" skill involves rubbing up against allies' legs. Vinny is put off by the skill when its first use is seen with Vinesauce, but Vinesauce is OK with it.
  • The Reveal: Vinny decides that he's the owner of the game's inns not long after he joins.
  • Those Two Guys: Alongside Speed Luigi. They're brothers who are introduced shortly after one another, and both end up being some of the strangest adventurers due to their clothing choices and actions.
  • Trauma Inn: True to his name, Hotel Mario apparently owns all of the hotels/inns that the party comes across. This justifies why they're free and (when you consider Mario's Airheaded status) why they're found in odd places like the Dark Lord's Nightmare Tower.

    Speed Luigi 
"This one goes out to all of you!"

An Energetic Pop Star (male outfit) who joined the party soon after his brother joined. His defining traits are his bulging eyes and long tongue.

  • The Bus Came Back: After he had been captured by the Dark Lord, Vinesauce's party finds his face attached to Cerberus.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "~~~~~~~~~~~~~~", meant to represent his tongue.
  • Dreadful Musician: Averted most of the time (his singing is good enough to distract enemies and invigorate allies), but one of his attacks has him singing so loud and screechy that he damages the whole field, friend and foe alike.
  • Ear Worm: His "Earworm" ability distracts enemies with catchy music.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Vinny reveals both Hotel Mario and Speed Luigi were separated from each other at the age of three. Which justifies why despite being related they have no connection with each other when they finally meet.
  • Mythology Gag: Speed Luigi comes from Vinny's streams of Game & Wario's "Miiverse Sketch" mode, where he'd draw a crude Luigi licking something or someone with a long tongue whenever he couldn't think of something else to draw. Just like with Mario, Vinny's Luigi impression has been a longtime Vinesauce joke as well.
  • Overly-Long Tongue: Normally, his tongue is several feet long. On his Mii, it's just a short-yet-present tongue made with a certain lip design.
  • Speech Impediment: Vinny thinks he has trouble speaking, not because of a regular speech impediment but because his tongue is always outside his mouth. Vinny voices him by sticking his tongue out and attempting to perform his normal Luigi voice.
  • Those Two Guys: Alongside Hotel Mario. They're brothers who are introduced shortly after one another, and both end up being some of the strangest adventurers due to their clothing choices and actions.
  • Transplant: Miitopia gives him a permanent home after Nintendo's decision to close Miiverse in late 2017 makes it impossible to make more Miiverse Sketch drawings.


A Stubborn Scientist and the head of the RedLetterMedia group. Mike Stoklasa taken a break from reviewing the endless trash of film to help out Vinny in the Neksdor region. Later converted by Vinny into the Token Good Teammate Jahn from Vineland Island.

  • Assimilation Plot: Unlike the Jahns' actions on Vineland, LumberJahn does this unintentionally when he dies and is inadvertently absorbed by Mike.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry as Mike is "ENDLESS TRASH".
  • Mythology Gag:
    • In the very first episode of Vinesauce Tomodachi Life, Vinny found Mike Stoklasa in his Mii Maker and claimed that he was going to add him as an islander; he got distracted by Witch afterwards and forgot about Stoklasa until several episodes later, and by then he thought he'd be out-of-place on Vineland Island. Over three years later, Vinny rediscovered Stoklasa when looking for Miis, and he finally gets his chance to shine.
    • His "endless trash" quote appeared in a RedLetterMedia clip Vinny played multiple times during a stream of EarthBound.
  • Perma-Stubble: Part of Mike's design, which is carried over to LumberJahn.
  • Ret-Gone: After being assimilated by LumberJahn, everyone in the party forgets about his existence and acts like LumberJahn was always there. just like in Vineland Island.
  • Shout-Out: Vinny chose the scientist role for Stoklasa because he played a "Scientist Man" in a few videos related to film analysis.
  • Straw Nihilist: To the point that he lets Jahn into his body and assimilate him, because he didn't even want to live in Miitopia anymore.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Only lasts one episode before becoming LumberJahn.

"No matter how often I stop to fix it... my sock keeps falling down inside my shoe. Why, sock? WHYYYY?"

A Kind Scientist, he's the only known remaining Jahn on the planet after the Jahn Invasion of Vineland Island. After nearly dying off-screen for unknown reasons he's forced to assimilate with Mike Stoklasa to survive, replacing him.

  • The Artifact: His name refers to what was originally a Paper-Thin Disguise before he actually became a lowly lumberjack during Vinesauce Tomodachi Life. As a Scientist, he gets as far away from that motif as possible, but keeps the name. While the hidden Elf class gets a lumberjack outfit, no classes use axes.
  • Bash Brothers: Alongside Vinesauce, as they're very commonly paired up and have the strongest relationship on the team.
  • Become a Real Boy: He's still trying to become more like a human and learn about human culture and emotions.
  • Blob Monster: The Dark Lord put his face on a Slime after capturing him.
  • Breakout Character: He gets more backstory to justify his involvement, and as the first party member Vinesauce saves once the rescue arc starts, he's in a lot of the party formations for the fourth and fifth worlds.
  • The Bus Came Back: He rejoins Vinesauce's party in Karkaton after the Dark Lord captures him.
  • Catchphrase: At first it's "ENDLESS TRASH" like Mike, but then it becomes "ENDLESS REFUSE".
  • Gratuitous Laboratory Flasks: He uses beakers as his weapons. One of his attacks, "Unstable Formula", has him shake the flask and then spray its pressurized contents on the entire enemy team.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: His presence in these streams spoils the Jahn arc from the Tomodachi Life streams as well as the fact that one Jahn didn't leave Earth with the others and chose to join human society as a lumberjack instead, the former of which happened near the end of the original run and the latter of which happened at the very end of it.
  • Mighty Lumberjack: He's a lumberjack in training, albeit in-name-only during this game, and as the party's magic powerhouse, he quickly proves his might.
  • Non-Indicative Name: His lumberjack-themed name doesn't reflect his job in Miitopia, as he's a scientist instead.
  • Noodle Incident: In Part 13 he tells Speed Luigi that he has a fond memory of some sort of incident involving a butterfly and camping by a bonfire.
  • Only Sane Man: Alongside Vinesauce, LumberJahn is the closest thing the team has to a "normal" character, being the only one with a Kind personality. This especially shows when he's part of the Neksdor party, which contains the two false Mario Brothers and Imp Vinesauce; compared to their antics, the weirdest Lumber Jahn does is getting into a petty fight with Speed Luigi and gifting a centipede to Vinesauce.
  • Perma-Stubble: A major difference with his Vineland counterpart, as well as the other Jahns (who are all completely hairless), is his beard, which he got after assimilating with Mike.
  • Science Hero: While he has the looks and attacks of a Mad Scientist, he's very much a good guy, and one of the more normal party members when he's not blasting his enemies with a shaken-up bottle of chemicals.
  • Spell My Name with an S: His name was spelled as two words in Tomodachi Life due to technical limitations, but Vinny dropped the space in Miitopia.

    Cling On 
"Wake up, Alpaca!"

An Energetic Flower. She's the second female party member and another returning character from Vineland Island, on top of being one of the preferred characters in the series. She joins after Vinesauce's party gets spirited away a second time.

  • Ambiguously Bi: She and Alpaca were interpreted as a couple after a conversation between them at an inn, on top of previously giving Vinesauce a photo that Vinny referred to as a nude photo.
  • Artistic License – Biology: Vinny points out how her Peacock Outfit is based on an animal instead of a plant, in contrast to most of her other outfits.
  • The Bus Came Back: She's rescued in the Dark Lord's Tower after her face is put on a Dark Lord painting.
  • Catchphrase: Her war cry is "QAPLA'!"
  • Damager, Healer, Tank: The Flower is primarily a support class, making her the healer to Vinesauce's Damager and Scoot's tank when they all team up in the Realm of the Fey.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: When she randomly starts singing during a Travelers' Hub quest, Vinesauce compares her singing to the sound a mole makes.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Uses leaves of all things in a fight.
  • Ms. Fanservice: When she gives Vinesauce a photo of herself, Vinny suspects it's a nude photo specifically. Southbird modifies the footage accordingly.
  • Mythology Gag: Vinny had previously set "Qapla" (without an apostrophe in that case) as her catchphrase in Tomodachi Life. Since Miitopia lacks a text-to-speech engine, Vinny doesn't have to deal with it being pronounced "Kappa" this time.
  • Shout-Out: While she has little in common with her namesake, the Klingons from Star Trek, she nevertheless has an actual Klingon word as her war cry.
  • Stylistic Suck: One of her Flower class outfits simply has a crude flower drawing on it.

"We'll get intimidatingly ripped! TRAINING TIME!"

An Airheaded Tank and one of Vinny's favorite animals in Animal Crossing. He joins after Vinesauce's party gets spirited away a second time.

  • 11th-Hour Superpower: He learns Hot Shot during the battle against The Darkest Lord Jesus.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Due to additions the game made to Mii functionality (compared to either the system's basic features or Tomodachi Life), Scoot is able to have the bright green coloration he has in his home series.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Vinny wonders if his gift of a gold ring to Vinesauce was a proposal. Previously, he appeared to be in love with Cyrus in his home series, which comes up when he got angry with Alpaca at one point due to their shared species.
  • A-Team Firing: His "Wild Shot!" attack involves aimlessly firing multiple shots in quick succession. Sometimes the shots end up hitting allies, occasionally angering them if it happens.
  • The Bus Came Back: After he had been captured by the Dark Lord, Vinesauce's party finds his face attached to Cerberus.
  • Damager, Healer, Tank: He's a tanky character both mechanically and literally, making him the Tank to Cling On's Healer and Vinesauce Damager when they team up in the Realm of the Fey.
  • Dumb Jock: The original Scoot is more known for his athleticism than his intelligence, so he ended up being an Airhead and physical fighter in Miitopia.
  • Human Cannonball: One of his attacks, which is even called Human Cannonball in-game, uses his allies as ammo. This is done without the ally's permission and often angers them afterward, doing so more often than when allies are fed spicy food by a Chef or hit with the tank's "Wild Shot!" attack.
  • Slasher Smile: His "Wild Shot!" involves shooting wildly while baring his teeth with wide-open eyes.
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: Can't for the life of him pronounce the word "Banana". He tries and tries but he never gets it right, much to his frustration.
  • Tank Goodness: Uses a bizarre tank armor and shoots shells out of a turret on its head. Despite it not making sense, it just works.
  • Toothy Bird: He's shown to have a full set of teeth, despite being a duck.
  • With Friends Like These...: He is such a berserker in battle that he keeps hurting his friends, either by hitting them in a volley or using them as ammunition. Needless to say that everyone on his team has some quarrel with him.

"We should always keep the entire world clean."

A Cool Princess and the last party member of the main game. She's from a rather infamous game Vinny streamed several years before Miitopia.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Alpaca finally has white hair like in Paca Plus, after going through all of Tomodachi Life with grey hair. This is thanks to the improved in-game Mii Maker allowing coloring of individual elements; while Tomodachi Life had hair dye, it dyed all of the hair on a Mii, which would've messed with the eyebrow-eyes that Alpaca has (Lamb Chop was a victim of this, with her white dye also coloring her "eyes" white). Hair dye is also not permanent in Tomodachi Life, as bathing washes it off.
  • Ambiguously Gay: She and Cling On were interpreted as a couple after a conversation between them at the inn.
  • Authority in Name Only: Since anyone can potentially join the Princess class, her royalty is a bit questionable. Southbird mentioned a theory that her coke usage makes her believe she's really a princess.
  • The Bus Came Back: Vinesauce, LumberJahn, and Jesus rescue her after the Dark Lord puts her face on a cloud monster.
  • Catchphrase: Her war cry is "KAZUMA KUN!"
  • Character Development: She was a Shrinking Violet back in Tomodachi Life, but she got the Cool personality in this game (the only party member who has it), indicating that she's improved over time, at least on the outside. (It's not known if her marriage to Walrus, which brought her out of her depression permanently, is canon to the Miitopia playthrough.)
  • Cool Crown: She wears a tiara around her head.
  • Functional Addict: According to Vinny she takes extreme amounts of cocaine in both Tomodachi Life and Miitopia to cope with her depression. Despite this, she's just as functional as any other Mii.
  • It's Snowing Cocaine: Vinny makes her hair noticeably whiter in the stream, leading to a chat member saying that it's because of all the cocaine.
  • Neat Freak: At an inn she talked to Cling On about not just wanting to clean their room and the inn itself, but the whole world. Vinny claims that being high on cocaine caused this.
  • Princess Classic: Her class primarily wears flowing dresses associated with princesses, uses fans as weapons, and has a move that involves trying to spare an enemy, and Alpaca herself is obsessed with cleanliness.
  • Punny Name: Vinny comes up with "Alpunka" as a name for the combination of her Punk Outfit armor and Blade Fan weapon.

Post-Game Heroes

"What a story!"

A Cool Vampire added in the postgame. He's the rather infamous director and actor of the movie The Room.

  • Ascended Extra: In Tomodachi Life, Johnny from The Room was a case of Last Episode, New Character. Here, the same Mii represents Tommy Wiseau himself. He starts out with a role that's still minor when he first appears at the Travelers' Hub, but he assists the party in a side quest. Vinny mentions adding him as a permanent party member in the post-game when he shows up, which he follows up on after he spends some time as a Guest-Star Party Member.
  • Big Boo's Haunt: After the party defeats the boss that unlocks the Vampire class, he reveals that the haunted mansion it took over is actually his and that the Bat Charm used to access the Vampire class is an old heirloom.
  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "What a story!".
  • Celebrity Resemblance: After the party accepts his Travelers' Hub quest, Vinny points out a viewer comment saying that his Mii looks like a different celebrity, specifically Jack White.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: He's treated as a temporary party member when he joins during the quest that unlocks the Vampire class. Vinny has him join permanently later on.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He uses bats (as in, the animal) as a weapon (or rather, bat-shaped objects).
  • Mythology Gag: His Mii is the same as Johnny's Mii from Tomodachi Life, renamed by Vinny for the sake of being based on Tommy Wiseau himself instead of a character of his.

"Funny how?!"

An Energetic Pop Star added in the postgame. He's another returning islander from Vineland Island.

"Ehhh... you know."

A Stubborn Mage added in the postgame, and another popular character to return from Vineland Island.

  • Catchphrase: His war cry is "Ehhh... you know."
  • Heavy Sleeper: Constantly falls asleep while helping Chromie navigate the higher reaches of Powdered Peaks.
  • Mythology Gag: His "Ehhh... you know" war cry is based on a Verbal Tic Vinny gave Pretzel when voicing him in Episode 55 of Tomodachi Life.
  • Scratch Damage: Consistently deals single-digit damage to difficult enemies, because Vinny keeps giving him Hyper Sprinkles.
  • Squishy Wizard: Gets knocked down a LOT, despite being of equal level of other party members. This is because, unlike Mage Vinny, he does not have the boosts in defence given by grub.
  • You Are in Command Now: A temporary example. When Vinesauce falls ill in the postgame, Pretzel is given the first slot in the party (though he still couldn't be directly controlled).

"I can be your angel OR your devil! Hehehe!"

An Energetic Imp added in the postgame. Another returning islander from Vineland Island.

  • Ascended Extra: Downplayed. Peewee was a fun islander, but never amounted to a lot in Vinesauce Tomodachi Life. Despite this, he was made into a party member here, albeit only in the postgame.
  • Catchphrase: His warcry is "This is crack."
  • Drugs Are Bad: The infamous PSA is referenced in his warcry. Vinny also suspects that this is the reason he shares an inn room with Alpaca, a known addict.

    Guy Fieri 

A Laid-back Chef added in the postgame.

Major NPCs

    Dark Lord Bill/Mike Love 
"I've come to wreak havoc and terror on this miserable little world!"

The villain responsible for stealing the faces of the Miis of Miitopia. He initially has the guise of Nintendo localizer Bill Trinen during the demo, but is changed to that of The Beach Boys member Mike Love late into Part 3. He's actually just a normal human possessed by an evil spirit, which possesses Jesus after being defeated.

The Dark Lord is a Walking Spoiler.

  • Adaptational Villainy: His initial form is based on Bill Trinen, a Nintendo of America localizer who hosted the North American Tomodachi Life Nintendo Direct and acts as Shigeru Miyamoto's interpreter. He later gets changed to Mike Love of The Beach Boys. However, Mike Love isn't actually evil.
  • And I Must Scream: Ex-Dark Lord Mike Love tells Vinesauce that he was aware of what the Dark Curse made him do as the Dark Lord, but couldn't do anything about it.
  • Arc Words: Not long after the Dark Lord is changed from Bill Trinen to Mike Love, Southbird randomly displays a montage that features the real Mike Love saying "Have mercy" repeatedly.
  • Beat the Curse Out of Him: Defeating him reveals him to be a normal man possessed by an evil spirit, who ends up freed from its control.
  • Big Bad: He's the main villain in the game and responsible for stealing Miis' faces. The Reveal removes him from this role, as he's just a body the Dark Curse uses.
  • Butt-Monkey: Bill Trinen has been the subject of jokes from Vinny before Miitopia, such as the various times he attributed some of the goofier portions of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's English script to him.
  • Dark Is Evil: His title is Dark Lord and he's responsible for people's faces being stolen. The Dark Curse turns out to be the one behind everything.
  • Deal with the Devil: He became the Dark Lord after the Dark Curse tempted him into releasing it. It backfired when he was unable to control the power it offered.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Dark Lord Mike Love is only fought about halfway through the adventure, after which the Dark Curse abandons Mike Love as a host and moves on to Great Sage Jesus.
  • Frivolous Lawsuit: Vinny refers to his face-stealing as suing people for their faces, adding that having a face makes him think he has exclusive rights to faces.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Ex-Dark Lord Mike Love joins Vinesauce's party for their trek through The Sky Scraper to make up for his unintended misdeeds. He mostly serves as moral support (and an HP Banana dispenser) since he no longer has any magic powers.
  • Hate Sink: In contrast to how Bill Trinen was made the Dark Lord solely as a joke, Vinny outright despises Mike Love, which Southbird noted in a caption when showing Vinny changing the Dark Lord Mii, in contrast to how Brian Wilson is one of his favorite musicians. This becomes a little awkward when it's revealed that Mike Love wasn't really a bad guy.
  • Insistent Terminology: Mike Love doesn't kidnap Miis; he sues them and steals exclusive rights to them and their likenesses.
  • Shapeshifting: Vinny decides to make him a "faceshifter" to justify how the Mii used for him changed partway through the game. He was actually completely right about this; the "real" Dark Lord is revealed to be a spirit that changes forms depending on the power of its host.
  • Scratch Damage: His "Rock Throw" deals 1 to 4 damage, leading to over the top reactions by Vinny and the chat when Mike is actually succesful in defeating an enemy.
  • Take That!: Vinny used Mike Love as the Dark Lord due to his dislike of the man for his mismanagement of The Beach Boys, in contrast to how Vinny's choice of Bill Trinen is one of several small jokes about him.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Both Bill and Mike are harmless-sounding names, but in this case they belong to the main villain of the game.

    The Guardian Spirit 
"I, er, bestoweth upon thee the awesome power of the guardian!"

A mysterious being that connects to Vinesauce through Midna's antique charm. He helps Vinesauce by granting him powers and sending allies his way. It's not known what he looks like, but Vinny provides a South Park-influenced voice for him.

  • Powers That Be: The Guardian Spirit provides Vinesauce with powers and allies but does not directly involve himself.
  • Shout-Out: His voice is a reference to the Lemmiwinks episodes of South Park.
  • The Voice: It's unknown what he looks like, and we'll never get to see what he looks like.

    Great Sage Jesus 
"I heard about your exploits. Like saving a whole kingdom, for example. Excellent work!"

A powerful mage wandering the lands, J-J-J-J-Jesus crosses paths with the heroes several times to help them fend off the Dark Lord. Later, he gets possesed by the evil spirit that controlled Mike Love, becoming the Darker Lord.

Great Sage Jesus is a Walking Spoiler.

  • Beat the Curse Out of Him: The party frees him from the Dark Curse's control by fighting him, after which he's unharmed and separated from the Dark Curse.
  • Brick Joke: In Part 43 of Tomodachi Life Vinny offhandedly says that "[Satan is the dark wizard] and Jesus is the Light Wizard." Years later, this is exactly what Jesus is in Miitopia.
  • Final Boss: He's fought in the Otherworld as the Darkest Lord, serving as the final boss of the main storyline.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: He joins Vinesauce after his third party gets captured, staying with him until Cerberus is defeated near the end of Karkaton.
  • Humble Hero: He tells Vinesauce that the Great Sage title is something others gave him and that he's simply a powerful traveling magician. Vinny thinks he's just downplaying his importance by saying this.
  • Jesus Was Way Cool: After their first encounter with him, both Vinesauce and Gordon are in bliss over his power. Vinesauce even calls him cool, while Gordon describes him as "dreamy". Vinesauce also feels safer with him around after his third party gets captured by the Dark Lord, after which he has no other companions.
  • Kung-Fu Jesus: Jesus wasn't much of a combatant when he appeared on Vineland, but here he's a wizard with power matching the Dark Lord.
  • Mythology Gag: Jesus appeared as an islander in Tomodachi Life and the pronunciation of his name with a stutter is a reference to how Vinny had the game pronounce his name.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He performs a Heroic Sacrifice to stop the Dark Curse from taking over Vinesauce. However, this turns him into the Darker Lord, far more powerful than Mike Love ever was; Vinesauce was a mid-level Mage at the time and wouldn't have been nearly as strong of a vessel.
  • One-Winged Angel: Instead of fighting in his Darker Lord form, Dark Curse amasses a ton of Mii parts to turn Jesus into the Darkest Lord: a being with two Giant Hands of Doom that are fought separately, followed by Jesus's face on a constantly morphing gold sun.
  • Only Sane Man: In comparison to most of the local population. For example, he looks slightly disturbed when he sees Vinesauce wearing a green skin-tight demon costume (something no one else questions), though he gets over it quickly because he's more concerned about his lost lamp.
  • Wham Line: After being possessed by the Dark Curse and becoming the Darker Lord, one of his first lines afterward is "Sweet! This face comes with a cool new body!"

    King SpongeBob 
"And this miscreant stole the people's faces, you say?"

Greenhorne has a ruling family, as all good kingdoms do. The head of it is King SpongeBob, the first major role (besides the various Dark Lords) to not be filled by a Tomodachi Life islander.

  • Adipose Rex: King SpongeBob weighs quite a few pounds more than his canonical self.
  • Mythology Gag: While he's not a common sight in Vinny's streams, SpongeBob did appear as a Guest Fighter in Super Smash Battle, a bad Super Smash Bros. fan game that Vinny streamed once.
    • The boss fight with him has him get corrupted by a pale yellow and square bodied golem stealing his face, making him look very accurate to his canon self as some of the chat lampshades.
  • Rock Monster: SpongeBob's face gets pasted onto the body of a Golem. Golems are pale yellow and slightly blocky, so it fits well.
  • Your Size May Vary: The original SpongeBob is much smaller than humans in his home series, but here he's huge.

    Princess Lamb Chop 
"I'm worried about my friend in town. Would you check on Karl for me?"

King SpongeBob's daughter is none other than Princess Lamb Chop, returning from Vineland Island and bringing relationship problems with her.

  • Damsel in Distress: Her face gets stolen by he Dark Lord after a series of sidequests, requiring the party (and Karl) to venture into the Nightmare Tower to rescue her.
  • Happily Married: She gets married to Karl after Dark Curse is dealt with.
  • Mythology Gag: Lamb Chop is taken directly from Vinny's Tomodachi Life streams, though she wasn't very royal on Vineland. However, her Arranged Marriage to Prince Groose ties into that game, as Lamb Chop and Groose were the first islanders to get married and the first to divorce.

    Besmirched Noble's Son Karl 
"I'm so scared... But I must pursue the foul fiend!"

Lamb Chop's childhood friend is the hapless Karl Pilkington. His reputation carries over from both real life and Tomodachi Life; he has no skills and gets no respect, but at least he's entertaining.

  • Butt-Monkey: As usual for him. When the party first meets him, he's getting easily knocked about by a group of Goblins, the second-weakest monsters in the game. Later on, he's unable to deal any damage to a boss monster.
  • Happily Married: Once all the chaos in Miitopia is resolved, the credits revealed that Karl and and Lamb Chop got married.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Vinny chose Groose and Karl for the two male nobles due to their brief stint as the "Sloppy Seconds Brothers" on Vineland Island, coming from a stream where they both arrived at two love confessions of other islanders (and in both cases, the person being confessed to ignored them and chose the original Mii).
    • The Besmirched Noble's Son is the perfect role for Karl, who became pathetic and suffered constant failures in later Tomodachi Life streams. Both are also known for their relationship troubles.
    • In Part 4, Karl tries to fight General Lamb Chop, a gigantic pink ape with Lamb Chop's face on it. Vinny wastes no time in making "li'l monkey fella" jokes.
  • Put on a Bus: After the Greenhorne arc, he doesn't reappear until the credits of the game, even when his fiancée and her father are recaptured by the Darkest Lord.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: After his terrible luck at relationships (and everything else) during Tomodachi Life, Karl gets together with Princess Lamb Chop after impressing King SpongeBob with his willingness to save her.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Unlike Groose, he puts effort into getting involved in the battle against the Dark Lord. While he ultimately turns out to be bad at fighting, he doesn't deny it and earns respect for at least trying.
  • You Don't Look Like You: This Karl Mii is different from the one Vinny used in Tomodachi Life, though he's treated as the same character.

    Prince from a Nearby Land Groose 
"You imbeciles! Take me to the princess, this instant! And don't you dare dawdle!"

The Prince of Neksdor, who is to be wed with Princess Lamb Chop. Groose is also fairly incompetent, but he gets the respect that Karl lacks.

  • Dirty Coward: His refusal to go after the Dark Lord to save Lamb Chop leads to King SpongeBob reconsidering the arrange marriage and letting Karl get together with Lamb Chop.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Groose joins the party for the trek back across the desert once they find him, though he's useless in battle.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Despite claiming to be strong warrior, all Groose does is boast to a Griffin about his prowess while the heroes beat it down. The party is not amused by him attempting to take credit for it.
  • Mythology Gag: Vinny chose Groose and Karl for the two male nobles due to their brief stint as the "Sloppy Seconds Brothers" on Vineland Island, coming from a stream where they both arrived at two love confessions of other islanders (and in both cases, the person being confessed to ignored them and chose the original Mii).
  • Put on a Bus: He's left to weep in the desert after freeing Waluigi, and he doesn't show up again until the credits.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Miitopia, he's an obnoxious person with none of the Jerk with a Heart of Gold traits that he had in either Skyward Sword or Tomodachi Life.
  • Upper-Class Twit: While both he and Karl are both fairly incompetent, Karl is honest about it while Groose is an arrogant coward who takes credit for the heroes' work.
  • You Don't Look Like You: This Groose Mii is different from the one Vinny used in Tomodachi Life, though he's treated as the same character.
  • Your Size May Vary: Groose is tall in his origin game and tall in Tomodachi Life, but here he's one of the shortest characters in the game.

    Genie of the Lamp Waluigi 
"Wharharharhar! FREE AT LAST!!"

A sinister genie sealed in a lamp by the Great Sage. After Groose lets him loose by accident, Vinesauce and his second party must find a way to imprison him again.

  • Adaptational Villainy: The original Waluigi is generally portrayed as a jerk at worst, while he gains a more outright villainous portrayal here.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: He begs Vinesauce not to put him back in the lamp, saying he'll give back the treasure he stole from Neksdor's citizens, which he follows up on. He abandons his evil ways from then on followed by becoming one of Dark Lord Mike Love's victims.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Neksdor arc, to an extent; he's only villainous for the first half of the arc, but unwillingly winds up becoming the arc's final boss anyway when Dark Lord Mike Love steals his face.
  • Beard of Evil: On top of gaining a second mustache, Waluigi's Mii gains a beard after being given the role of the genie.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Vinesauce spares him when he almost sucks him back into the lamp he apologizes and goes back to Neksdor Town, giving back all the gold he stole. Then Mike Love comes around and sues him and most of the town.
  • I Know Your True Name: Jesus reveals that repeating his name is the key to sealing him back in his lamp.
  • Mythology Gag: Waluigi being a genie has been a Vinesauce In-Joke ever since Vinny's Mario Party: Island Tour streams, and this also applied to Tomodachi Life's Waluigi.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The Great Sage stuck him in a lamp, and he tricked Prince Groose into letting him out of that lamp.

    The Fab Fairies Toadette, Tina, and Tingle 
A trio of three powerful elves who protect the Realm of the Fey from evil forces such as the Dark Lord. The three sisters are, from oldest to youngest, the wise, mature Toadette, the shy and gentle Tina, and the mischievous and energetic Tingle.
  • Age Lift: Tingle somehow ended up as the youngest of the three, despite being 35 in his home series. Justfied in that we don't exactly know the life expentancy of fairies.
  • Alliterative Family: Three sisters(?), all with names beginning with a T.
  • Ambiguous Gender: The Fab Fairies are explicitly sisters, but Vinny cast the ostensibly male Tingle as the youngest of the sisters and he is referred to as female by other NPCs.
  • Badass in Distress: Although the trio are powerful enough to fight the Dark Lord, he managed to catch the elder two off-guard after being driven away and kidnapped them.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Each of the three Fab Fairies joins Vinesauce's team for a short while during the Realm of the Fey arc. They and other Miis seen in the main quest can show up in the Travelers' Hub alongside the randomized one-off Miis also seen there.
  • Me's a Crowd: Vinny considered making all three of the Fab Fairies Tina, but changed two to Tingle and Toadette to reduce confusion.
  • Mythology Gag: Tingle went from merely wanting to be a fairy in the Zelda games to actually being one in Miitopia.
  • You Don't Look Like You: The Tingle Mii used in this game is much different from the one Vinny used in Tomodachi Life.

    Dominic the Dragon 
"I'm Dominic. I'm a dragon, of course."

A powerful and ferocious beast encountered within Dark Lord Mike Love's castle. Once Vinesauce and crew defeat him and free him from the Dark Lord's power, he turns out to be a total softie.

  • Alliterative Name: Vinny comments on how his name and species both begin with the same letter.
  • Beat the Curse Out of Him: An unusual example compared to the rest of this game, as it's the monster that's being freed from a face, rather than the other way around like the other bosses.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: As a non-Mii character who isn't The Voice, he's a completely predefined character who can't have his design changed by Vinny or SpotPass.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: In contrast to the traditional portrayal of dragons as villainous, he was only acting evil because the Dark Lord was controlling him and he's actually friendly.

    The Dark Curse (Unmarked Spoilers) 

Vlinny (Dark Curse)

The real villain of the game, a tiny spirit who took over Mike Love to get extreme face-stealing power. The party trounces its initial form in Part 13, so it abandons Mike for a new unwilling host: The Darker Lord Jesus. After that form is defeated, Jesus explains the curse's backstory, and he is given a physical form, which is none other than Vlinny.
  • Big Bad: As the controller of both the Dark Lord and the Darker Lord, it's this for the whole of Miitopia.
  • Dark Is Evil: It's a malicious spirit that possesses people to steal others' faces, with the Dark Lord and Darker Lord being its puppets instead of genuinely evil beings.
  • Demonic Possession: It originally had no face of its own and was seen possessing someone when using its face-stealing powers, with Mike Love (originally Bill Trinen) and Jesus being its victims in this case.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He mellows out after Vinesauce spares him and grants him another face. Jesus plans to take him under his wing to fully turn him towards the path of good.
  • An Ice Person: Just like his Tomodachi Life apartment, Vlinny's Sky Scraper seems to be built of a clear, crystalline substance decorated with snowflakes, Vinny states that the cold is used to prevent Vlinny's transformation back into the Dark Curse.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The Dark Lord is revealed to be an innocent man possessed by the Dark Curse.
  • Stable Time Loop: Vinny states that, despite the events of Miitopia happening after Tomodachi Life for the main cast, Vlinny experiences them in reverse, with his travels with Great Sage Jesus eventually leading him to Vineland Island, presumably through time travel hijinks.
  • This Was His True Form: The power source behind the almighty Dark Lord turned out to be nothing more than a small cycloptic spirit hiding inside a medallion.
  • Walking Spoiler: Not only is he the secret villain of the game, but he's also Vlinny, one of the most important (and morally confusing) characters in all of the Tomodachi Life series.

Wandering NPCs

    Nintendo Fan MaskSales 
A fan of Nintendo who runs the game's amiibo features, first met in the Greenhorne region. The initial Mii in this role was Luka, but Vinny decided to change it to the Happy Mask Salesman from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.
  • Adaptation Name Change: His name is shortened to MaskSales due to character limits.
  • Adapted Out: Southbird chooses to skip the encounters with him in his edits, so Hotel Mario and Speed Luigi appear get their signature outfits out of nowhere.
  • Ambiguous Gender: The game's description refers to the Nintendo Fan as female even after Vinny replaces the default Mii with MaskSales.

    Roaming Gourmet Pringles 
"Why, I am the roving gourmet, Pringles."

A traveling meal connoisseur who provides the best of foods to Vinesauce and company, who first meet him in the Greenhorne region. Appropriately, the game picked a Mii of the Pringles chip mascot for his role.

  • Early-Bird Cameo: A Pringles Mii is seen in Vinny's Mii Maker during streams of both Tomodachi Life and Miitopia, but he never got made into an islander in the former, though he appeared in the Tomodachi Life stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS during a stream of that game. Pringles and the Pringles mascot have also been referenced several times in Joel's streams.

    Quizmaster Dr Phil 
"Who has a never-ending thirst for fun and games? Me, the one and only Quizmaster, that's who!"

An eccentric traveler who hosts "Who Is It?" quizzes for the party, instead of hosting a reality talk show. He's first met in the Neksdor region.

  • Real Men Wear Pink: He wears a flamboyant, mostly hot pink suit and top hat.
  • Spell My Name with an S: There's no period after the "Doctor" abbreviation in his name, which means he may not actually be a doctor.

    Worried Explorer Rabbid 
"Well I never! This is exceedingly strange."

A Rabbid first met in Neksdor's town who explores the land in search of mystery and adventure. He often crops up in time to give a hint about a local puzzle or secret. Surprisingly eloquent and intelligent for a Rabbid.

  • Adaptational Intelligence: Most of his kind are known for dull-witted shenanigans and chaos, while Vinny considers this Rabbid to be smarter than the permanent residents of Neksdor's town, where he's first seen.
  • The Dreaded: Rabbid ends up being one of Vinny's least favorite NPCs, even commenting on his appearance in a piece of art shown after a stream.
  • I Am Very British: He speaks in a refined manner reminiscent of a stereotypical British explorer. Vinny has occasionally voiced his dialogue in a way that matches this.
  • Irony: It's pretty funny that a Rabbid became a recurring character in this game during the weeks before the Rabbids invaded one of Vinny's beloved game franchises.

    Prestigious Postman Chrom 
"I have a letter addressed to Mr. Vinesauce."

First seen in the Neksdor region, Chrom, very much down on his luck, has donned a ridiculous costume and visits the party to deliver the mail they get from other Miis.

  • Fallen-on-Hard-Times Job: He went from the ruler of Ylisse in his home game to a postman in a goofy outfit in Miitopia.
  • In-Series Nickname: Vinny referred to this incarnation of Chrom as "Mail Chrom" after showing a piece of Miitopia art that features him.

    Roving Photographer Mr Burns 
"Don't miss this photo op!"

A strange man not unlike a certain other roving photographer, who appears after major battles to sell Vinny photographs of the encounter instead of running a nuclear power plant. He first appears in the Pyramid in the Neksdor region.

  • Mythology Gag: His job as a traveling photographer leads Vinny to compare him to the Photo-man from EarthBound, since Vinny streamed his first playthrough of that game the year Miitopia came out in English.
  • Spell My Name with an S: "Mr" is written without a period as in British English, in contrast to how his name is officially written as "Mr. Burns" due to his original work's American origin.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: As a photographer he's nicer than the Mean Boss he was as the boss of a power plant. His photos are also cheaper than most other things in the game, usually being about 20 gold despite players generally having much more than that by the time the Roving Photographer is first encountered.

Minor NPCs

The group of villagers living in the First Town of Vinny's quest. They include Carefree Guide Snoop Dogg, Cheery Granny Lucy, Sassy Child Bobby Hill, Worried Mother Midna, Lovey-Dovey Couple Sasuke and K. Janeway, Sarcastic Guy Nick Cage, and Dubious Mayor Pit.
  • Age Lift: Lucy ends up with the Cheery Granny role in this game, despite clearly being a kid in Peanuts.
  • Blob Monster: A slime with Bobby Hill's face is one of the first monsters fought.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Nick Cage's Sarcastic Guy title ends up being apt, to the point of obnoxiousness.
  • Rock Monster: Nick Cage's face is stuck onto a boulder early on in the adventure.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Nicolas Cage's name is usually shortened to "Nic Cage", which isn't the case here.
  • Starter Villain: Bobby, Snoop, Janeway, Cage, and Lucy are the first Miis that Dark Lord Bill captures and turns into boss monsters, and the first area of the game is dedicated to defeating them and returning the faces.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Fanart depicts Rocky Nick Cage as being especially vulnerable to Vinesauce's bee equipment.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Rocky Nick Cage's defeat is partially attributed to Vinesauce's bee equipment bringing to mind the bee scene in The Wicker Man (2006).
  • You Don't Look Like You: Because this game's Snoop Dogg's Mii was automatically selected by the game while the Tomodachi Life Snoop Dogg's Mii was created by a Vinesauce fan specifically for those streams, the two Miis aren't exactly the same.

    Greenhorne Castle Guard 
The royal guards of Greenhorne Castle. Among their ranks are Serious Soldier papyrus, Lax Soldier Freddie, and Royal Supports Geordi and M. Freeman.
  • all lowercase letters: papyrus's name isn't capitalized at all, which is incredibly ironic since said character is known for the opposite.
  • The Guards Must Be Crazy: Downplayed; while they do a good job at monitoring the castle overall, they don't have any experience fighting monsters, so Princess Lamb Chop's face is easily stolen when a horde of Imps invade Greenhorne Castle.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • papyrus is a member of the royal guard, which was his main motivation in his origin game.
    • Vinny's used a Morgan Freeman impression before playing this game, and references to bad impressions of him in particular (which is what Vinny called his own when playing this game) previously showed up during Vinny's 2015 Super Mario Bros. X contest, which featured a level that had text saying it was to be read in a "shitty Morgan Freeman" voice.

The citizens of Neksdor town, which is part of the second major locale Vinesauce finds. Found here are Dancing Guide Isabelle, Rambling Old Man Mario, Shady Merchant Family Raven and Ash, Prickly Couple Batman (originally Iwata) and Xion, and Desert Celebrity Nikki. Worried Explorer Rabbid is also first met here.
  • Age Lift: Mario's rambling Dirty Old Man status contrasts him from his official counterpart, who's younger and largely silent.
  • Dirty Old Man: In his old age, Mario spends his days admiring Dancing Guide Isabelle. It's a little odd since Isabelle is a Funny Animal.
  • One-Steve Limit: Averted due to "real" Mario's presence here and Hotel Mario's presence in the party. According to what Vinny said about the Mario family in Part 5 (slightly before he met Rambling Old Man Mario), the two are long-lost brothers.
  • Rambling Old Man Monologue: True to his title, Rambling Old Man Mario rambles a few times. To his credit, it's pretty helpful in informing the party about Waluigi's antics.
  • Ret-Gone: invoked Iwata was replaced by Batman due to the real Iwata's death two years prior to the game's release leading Vinny and viewers to consider keeping him to be in poor taste. Nobody in Neksdor notices anything different, not even his wife.
  • Scaled Up: Batman inadvertently does this when his face is planted onto a giant cobra.

    Realm of the Fey 
The elves living in the Elven Retreat, the town found in the third major locale Vinesauce finds. Found here are Injured Elf Cthulhu, Scaredy-Cat Ribbon, the Fab Fairies Fans O'Chunks, Spider-Man, and Frasier, Green-Eyed Lady Erza, Lazybones ColeTrain, and Mischievous Witch Ophelia.
  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • Cthulhu went from one of the most famous Eldritch Abominations to a non-hostile NPC.
    • O'Chunks was an underling of the main villain in Super Paper Mario, something that doesn't carry over here.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: ColeTrain comments that napping became easier after the town got quieter, completely ignoring the fact that it got quieter because most other elves are missing their faces.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Green-Eyed Lady Erza ends up being defined by her ego, being jealous of the Fab Fairies' fame and considering not being targeted by the Dark Lord to be due to being thought of as unimportant compared to most other residents of the Elven Retreat.
  • It's All About Me: Erza thinks the reason the Dark Lord didn't target her is because she isn't considered important enough, leading to "complaining about being OK" as Vinny calls it.
  • Mythology Gag: How fitting that Ophelia is a Witch in this game when she can reclass into one in Fire Emblem Fates via DLC.
  • The Worf Effect: Cthulhu is introduced collapsed on the ground, injured by the arrival of the Dark Lord.

    Town Guide Beastboy 
"Ayup. Yer a strange one, aren't ya?"

The town guide at the Travelers' Hub, and its only permanent resident. Knows everything that's going on in town, and speaks with a West Country accent. Doesn't display much shapeshifting powers here.

    Travelers' Hub 
The random Miis who come to the Travelers' Hub to seek help from the adventuring party for various quests, then disappear after said quests are completed. Those helped by Vinny's team include Starry-Eyed Cleric Bill Nye (who asks the party to help him defeat the Abominable Snowman), Artsy-Fartsy Chef RonnieAnne (whose quest is to search for the hamburgers of Peculia), Orator Mage Blossom (whose quest is to rescue PM Trudeau), Thespian Cat Pooh Bear (whose quest is to rescue his dog Toby), Starry-Eyed Scientist Lucina, Punster Thief Bull (whose quest is to rescue Magikarp), Orator Vampire Tommy (who would later join the party in the post-game), and Singing Cleric Marie.

NPCs and Guest Star Party Members from earlier in the game can appear in the Travelers' Hub and have their own sections, and Tommy becomes a permanent party member and has his own section.

  • Call-Back: Lucina appears in the Travelers' Hub after the party encounters her father as a postman.
  • Mythology Gag: Gourmet Cat Guy Fieri shows up after several other streams containing Guy Fieri jokes from Vinny.
