Main Characters

     Shane Neumann 

Shane Neumann (Season 1-2)

First Appearance: Episode 5 (The Fears of Shane Neumann)

Eternal Name: ????

  • Abusive Parents: Claims that his father abuses him. Though knowing Shane, there might be more to this.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Despite all the drama sagas that have occurred, Shane doesn't learn a thing from it. Then again, it's possible that it's intentional on his part.
  • An Ice Person: He has the powers to control ice, something which he brings up in Episode 7.
  • Asexuality
  • Attention Whore: Shane tends whine about how depressed he is or derails threads to make them about himself. He's still better than Ellen in this regard though.
  • Big Eater: Much like Goku, he has a thing for food. Unfortunately for him, he's often starving and his metabolism is really quick.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Shane's Mastermind image combines this with Icy Blue Eyes.
  • Cool Pet: He's shown to have an Electric/Ice Pikachu in at least 2 thumbnails.
  • Colour Motif: Shane has green as his colour motif during Season 1. During Season 2, he keeps the green but also adds in cyan.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Despite how everyone acts like Shane is great, he proves that [[ he really]] isn't.
  • Feet of Clay: Despite being the leader of Vresun, he's inept enough that even Karjam and King of Despair appear to have more authority than he does.
  • Moral Myopia: If Shane causes drama, it's fine; anyone does it and the forum is in chaos.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: It's very possible that Shane is doing this to hide that he's one of the masterminds in the Vresun Conspiracy.
  • Overly Long Name: Shane claims that his full name is Wayne Jakobus Michael Shane Neumann. Much like Kim's full name, it's probably fake.
  • Palette Swap: Episode 7 and Episode 9 portray Shane as a green Anime/Pokemon Ash Ketchum and Yami Yugi respectively. Episode 20.2 has a darker version of Shane with dark eyes.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Shane has a thing for chess despite his average intelligence.
  • Tempting Fate: Shane does this in his debut episode by telling everyone his fears.
  • The Eeyore: Spends most of the series in depression, the series itself has a different interpretation.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Shane is the only character in Episode 20.2 whose image doesn't have an Ominous Visual Glitch.
  • The Hero: He serves as this for the first two seasons, being the main character of Season 1. He still fills this role but not as much during Season 2, once King of Despair takes centre stage.
  • Troubled Fetal Position: Episode 13's thumbnail portrays Shane in this position.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Shane tends not be too serious, you know something's gone wrong when he finally starts acting seriously.
  • Occidental Otaku: If one believes that Shane is a mastermind commandeering several alternate accounts, this appears to be the case since a lot of their avatars are anime characters.

     King of Despair 

King of Despair (Season 2)

First Appearance: (Episode 12 Crusader Turnabout)

Eternal Name:The Eternal Despair

  • All Love Is Unrequited: His attempts at finding love tend to end in failure. However, he's still willing to keep trying.
  • Casanova Wannabe: King of Despair's attempts to flirt with some of the members (i.e Alexis, Charlotte and Ariana) tends to get rejected and played for laughs.
  • Colour Motif: His colours are purple (and later lavender). It's later replaced with black.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Compared to Shane, he's much more down to earth and much more flawed.
  • Determinator: Even when told to give up, he still fought for Vresun. That is, until it was destroyed.
    • It's also his attitude to work and any problem in his way. When he wants to get something done, he'll try his damnedest to get it done.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: His Love Journal shows him as this, even though at points he behaves like an angry jealous prick.
  • Finger-Tenting: He does so in a manner that resembles Gendo Ikari.
  • Foil: He's a foil to Kushagra, Karjam and Shane:
    • Kushagra has a thing for dank memes whereas King of Despair prefers old school Youtube Poop memes. They both believe in the Vresun Conspiracy with King of Despair taking it seriously while Kushagra not seeing it as super important.
    • Both King of Despair and Karjam are interested in Games Design and are geniuses. King of Despair keeps it restrained whereas Karjam is [[InsufferableGenius very open with it. Both of them are stoic and seemingly unemotional with differences. King of Despair is much more emotional than he lets on but Karjam prefers to stay logical.
    • Shane and King of Despair both have their moments of sadness. Whereas Shane would rather wallow in his sadness while everyone tends to him, King of Despair tries to move forward even when it pains him. They're also gamers who create concepts for games.
    • Both King of Despair and Bloom are people with a strange sense of humour and a willingness to ship others. While Bloom takes a child-like glee in all of this, King of Despair does it because he finds it hilarious.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: His reaction to Ellen revealing that she was behind the Eternals? Lash out at her and everyone else he sees as responsible. Kushagra busting out the Vresun Conspiracy causes him to simultaneously want to solve the conspiracy and be in a state of denial.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Despite opposing the Eternals, he eventually starts to become just as bad as them. He eventually overcomes this.
  • I Have Many Names: He ends up changing his name several times (with The Eternal Despair and Re:KingofDespair being among them) This ends up being lampshaded on several occasions by other members.
  • Irony: Despite wanting to make Vresun a better place, he ends up putting it on a path to destruction.
  • Knight Templar: Ends up becoming this starting from the Crusader Turnabout.
  • Name's the Same: His name is taken from King of Despair, the final boss of Klonoa:Empire Of Dreams. He has nothing to do with King of Despair from Battle Blockade Battlefront.
  • Neologizer: Some of King of Despair's naming conventions regarding his creations tend to follow this pattern of speaking.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: States that Kushagra would make a good moderator. This comes to bite him later on when Shane gives Kushagra mod powers and the latter uses them to delete Vresun.
    • The Italian Turnabout starts a chain of events that eventually lead to Kushagra deleting all of Vresun.
  • Non-Indicative Name: King of Despair doesn't have control over despair or have ties to it despite the name.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: He's the only character to have a detailed design. In this case, his avatar is King of Evil from The Denpa Men.
  • Not Good with People: King of Despair is a Type 2 version of this since he's not too fond of other people. That aside, he is affable enough to get on with the others though.
  • Not So Different: During the Italian Turnabout, he gets really pissed once Kushagra tries to tell everyone that he and Pierre are the same guy. Kushagra then compares King of Despair to the Eternals by stating that both of them act nice at first only to get nasty when exposed and acting like nothing happened afterwards.
  • Pet the Dog: Even for all his less than stellar traits, he is willing to help others.
    • He tried to cheer Shane up from his depression [[even when he and Alfasketer start arguing.
    • When Bloom got depressed, he was willing to do whatever he could to cheer her up.
    • He was also willing to help Ariana improve the Lunar Shadow Project wiki.
  • Reality Ensues: His plan to spy on Lunar Shadow as Pierre Bruno is met with backlash. Kushagra even decides to sabotage his plans.
  • King of Despair's Knight Templar tendencies only proceed to make him as bad or worse than his enemies.
  • His pride ends up screwing him over on several occasions and causes Kushagra to chew him out, when King tries to justify his aggression against newer members.
  • Red and Black, Keep Back: Re:King of Despair's armour is jet black with the robes being red.
  • Shipper on Deck: King of Despair finds it fun to pair up various members, a trait he got from Bloom.
  • Spikes of Villainy: His armour has spikes in various places, with the arms being the most obvious.
  • Spotting the Thread: Ends up doing during the later story arcs when it's clear there is a conspiracy afoot.
  • Stop Helping Me!: His entire attitude toward The Infinity is to try and drive them out. It doesn't succeed and it only serves to frustrate him instead.
  • The Hermit: Tends to spend his time alone, away from other people.
  • Tin Tyrant: He's the only character to be armoured. This armour tends to take on different colours.
  • 24-Hour Armour: He's seen in armour all of the time.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Upon coming home and finding Vresun locked down due to Pteri and Karjam's spat, he ends up chewing them (especially the latter) for their behaviour.
    • He also ends up giving this to everyone during the HRTs Incident after Ellen reveals that she manipulated Shane into falling for her.

King of Despair (Season 3-4)

  • Black Comedy: Some of King of Despair's remarks tend to be this since he has a dark sense of humour.
  • Casanova Wannabe: His attempts to woo Ariana and her sister Charlotte tend not to succeed. Hilarity tends to ensue.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: King of Despair's reaction to the Vresun Conspiracy? Try to find evidence that supports it. This of course happens after King of Despair's denial of Shane's true nature fades away.
  • Hypocrite: Despite saying that Gwyneth was within her right to kick Shane and co out of Astrum 5Ds, he complains when he's banned later on from Symfora, which Shane was within his rights to do.
  • Not Good with People: King of Despair is a Type 2 version of this since he's not too fond of other people. That aside, he is affable enough to get on with the others though.
  • Not So Above It All: As Episodes 22 and 26 prove, King of Despair can at times be as silly as his fellow members.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • After seeing how the Symforians acted over being banned, King of Despair finally decides to turn against them, now having seen them for who they truly are.
    • Even he grows sick of Shane's bullshit and finally loses all respect for him once the latter claims to have faked his death.
  • Red and Black, Keep Back: Re:King of Despair's armour is jet black with the robes being red.
  • Serenade Your Lover: He tries this on Ariana during Episode 21 twice and winds up shot by Gomakashi.
  • Shipper on Deck: King of Despair finds it fun to pair up various members, which is something he got off Bloom.
  • The Starscream: Everyone on Symfora accuses King of Despair of this once it's found out that he was responsible for suggesting the rules that got them banned.
  • 24-Hour Armour: Much like the last two seasons, he's still seen in armour.

     Kushagra 

Kushagra/Kekshagra

First Appearance: Episode 3 (Revealing His True Self)

Eternal Name:The Eternal Dissonance

  • All There in the Script: Season 3 refers to him as Kekshagra though the show itself never uses the name.
  • Ancient Keeper: He has been around for the longest time, whereas others joined and left. He knows most, if not all, of the story.
  • Angst? What Angst?: He tends to be rather cheery even in grim situations.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: He destroys Vresun at the end of Season 2.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite his mostly comical persona, he ends up being the one to delete Vresun.
  • Bollywood Nerd: Despite his humorous personality, he ends up figuring out a lot of things. Taylor and Lily being fake via their hair colour is one such moment.
    • He also disproved the fact that Taylor's father was shot on a honeymoon in Russia, because not only would that make the news (which it didn't), it also just seemed outright silly.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Though silly, he's proven that he's utterly competent at calling people out when things go wrong.
  • Cassandra Truth: He's the one who brings up the Vresun Conspiracy and jokingly states in Episode 25 that the sockpuppets are all Bloom.
  • Chaotic Neutral: He's known to fight both sides equally, and cause anarchy in general over the forums. This, combined with his knack for destroying others while remaining comical, sometimes also makes him a Wildcard
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Stabs King of Despair in the back during the Italian Turnabout and does the same to Shane during the Apocalypse Turnabout.
  • Colour Motif: Kushagra uses a shade of teal/aquamarine (specifically #2dd2c1) as his colour motif.
  • Easily Forgiven: Despite destroying two years of work and all of Vresun, Shane and co allow him to rejoin them. This is pointed out during Episode 20
  • Just Eat Gilligan: Kushagra points out that most of Vresun's problems could be solved if the members just called the police.
    • He also often tells Shane to stop doing the things that make him depressed (which he purposefully does).
  • Leitmotif: Kekshagra has a Vapourwave version of Shadilay that is used anytime he's onscreen.
  • Reality Ensues: Despite being on the level of the other members, he's still younger than they are, which takes its toll on him occasionally.
    • After he ends up getting in King of Despair's way, the former ends up being a thorn in his side during his tenure as the Infinity.
    • He's sick enough of Vresun's drama that when Shane finally gives him the means to delete everything, he decides to go through with it.
    • Once he ends up deleting Vresun, King of Despair proceeds to turn on him and makes sure that he's banned. It takes a while for him to overcome his hatred for Kushagra.
    • Putting up with King of Despair's obsessive attempts at romance, makes it the first thing Kushagra mocks him for once the two of them turn against each other.
    • He's the only character in Episode 25 who thinks Ellen should kill herself since she's seeking attention.
  • Post-Final Boss: After the Eternals are done, he deletes Vresun and King of Despair decides to confront him.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Being a redeco of Krishna, it's really not surprising.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Ends up becoming this to the other members (especially King of Despair) during Season 3.
    • He and Karjam have this frequently due to the latter's pompous, often condescending behaviour.
  • Surreal Symbolic Heads: He has a TV for a head, and is among the few characters to have this design trait.
  • The Conspiracy: During the Memejam Turnabout, he brings up the conspiracy that Shane and all of the members of Vresun are the same person.
  • Two Aliases, One Character: As the Infinity, he plays the role of Regicide and Grandiloquence. The other members of the Infinity (such as Parallax and Chauvinism) are only mentioned but never actually seen.
  • Wildcard: He ends up becoming this once Season 2 ends. Much later, he lurked around as an aimless renegade, providing more information to King of Despair.

  • Off Screen Villainy: Episode 20.2 states he temporarily takes Symfora hostage to force the Mastermind to show themselves.
  • Reality Ensues: Upon failing to lure the Mastermind out in conjunction with being vilified, Mono proceeds to turn on Shane and co.
  • Silly Rabbit, Romance Is for Kids!: He dislikes romance as much as King of Despair likes it. Something that Dianke agrees with.

The Eternal Zero (Michelle Van Zylle)

First Appearance: N/A

Eternal Name:The Eternal Zero

  • Big Bad: She becomes the main antagonist of Season 2 during the Revelation Turnabout.
  • Blatant Lies: Tends to do this quite a bit. She even claimed to have a boyfriend at least once.
  • Boyfriend Bluff: She claims to have a boyfriend. King of Despair brings him up, prompting her to make up a story about he's 'King of the Eternals.'

  • Non-Action Big Bad: She doesn't actually do much beside letting her minions cause trouble.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Despite being the leader of the Eternals, The Eternal Zero doesn't really do a whole lot.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Shares this trait with the other Eternals.

     The Masterminds 

Tropes that apply to all of them:

Karjam

First Appearance: Episode 2 (The Eternal Darkness)

Eternal Name: N/A

  • Art Evolution: Because Karjam is the only one to draw his own avatar, this takes effect every so often.
  • Asperger's Syndrome: Karjam has confirmed that he's on the spectrum. Of course it's no excuse for his sheer pompousness.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Episode 6 has Karjam go on about how powerful he is.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: His Mastermind image has these and combines them with Purple Eyes.
  • Butt-Monkey: Despite being one of the more serious members, he tends to be on the receiving end of the other member's antics.
  • Colour Motif: Karjam's is blue. Fittingly, one of his characters is called Blue Karjam.
  • Critical Research Failure: Upon seeing Yhvkarjam, he gets offended and claims that it's offensive to his religion.Of course.. 
  • Feet of Clay: Most of the members seem to think he's the wisest person ever. This is spite of how several conflicts are caused by him.
  • Foil: Karjam is a foil to both Kushagra and King of Despair.
    • Kushagra and Karjam are both people who like music and roleplaying games. While Kushagra prefers to be laid-back and comical, Karjam takes things very seriously to the point that's he's like a brick wall.
    • King of Despair and Karjam are both smart people who are both serious and stoic. Unlike Karjam, King of Despair is a lot more emotional than he lets on.
  • Fountain of Memes: In the eyes of King of Despair, his Miijam avatar and his writing can be considered this, much to Karjam's chagrin.
  • Giftedly Bad: Despite not putting his own advice into practice, he preaches a philosophy that sounds like a sales pitch gone awry.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Considers the activation of Maintenance Mode to be this. King of Despair ends up chewing out for such a short sighted action.
  • Hypocrite: He tends to call out other people for starting drama even though he was responsible for the Religious Turnabout. He also tends to continue arguing with people when he could just leave.
    • He claims that allowing one's emotions to overcome them is bad even though he acted irrationally when Pteri criticised his religion.
    • Despite accusing King of Despair of being a bully, it can be argued that Karjam himself is a dogmatic bully who acts like everyone else is an idiot.
    • During Episode 29, despite stating that Gwyneth is hateful for banning the majority of Shane's lot from Astrum 5Ds, he has King of Despair banned from Symfora despite admitting that he's done nothing wrong.
    • If you try to argue with him, he'll accuse you of being "closed-hearted", a phrase that fits him more than the people he opposes.
  • Insufferable Genius: Karjam tends to act rather condescending whenever he interacts with other people. It doesn't help that he's always serious or that he doesn't seem to care all that much about the suffering of others.
  • Jerkass: He's one of the rudest characters in the series, not to mention that he's a disdainful hypocrite with an ego problem.
  • Palette Swap: Episode 20 Part 1 has a darker version of Karjam with dark eyes.
  • Principles Zealot: After gaining the power to free Vresun from the Eternals, he doesn't use them until pressured to do so. Even then, he only does it because of the Dragon Riders projects.
  • Shifting the Burden of Proof: When asked for proof that people think his is any good, he never bothers to provide proof and acts as though the burden is always on the other person.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Karjam and Kushagra are often at each other's throats. Despite this, they don't completely hate each other.
  • Sunk Cost Fallacy: Most people would stop arguing once they realise they're not going to win. Karjam will continue arguing with other people even if the other person wants to stop or if he's losing.
  • Terrible Artist: Despite writing several pieces on how to do art and even criticising others for not doing it properly, his art isn't all that great.
  • The Comically Serious: Despite how hilarious Karjam P can be, he's always 100% serious.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: The Discordians aren't too fond of him (with King of Despair even making memes of him) due to his insufferableness.
  • The Fundamentalist: Karjam isn't known to budge on his stances. This tends to be obvious when Christianity is bought up.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Episode 20.1 states that Karjam isn't a Mastermind and is being manipulated by Shane.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: It's possible that Karjam's behaviour is so terrible because Shane enables him instead of calling him out.
    • Episode 20.1 theorises that Shane is a terrible influence on Karjam and may be responsible for his deterioration.
  • Name's the Same: His name is the same as Tibetian singer Karjam Saeji. He ends up lampshading this similarity at one point.
  • Never My Fault: Tends to blame others when they have a problem with his behaviour; this is often why most people tend to get on his case.
  • No Social Skills: Karjam's understanding of other people's feelings is bad enough that even King of Despair comes off as charismatic in comparison.
  • Occidental Otaku: Has an obsession with Japanese culture to the point of trying to learn its ways.
  • Overly Long Gag: Episode 6 has Karjam list all the powers for his character Purple Karjam. Thankfully, the episode tells him to get on with it. Worse still, the image implies it's not even the full list.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Karjam's New World Era speech during Episode 29 states that he and Omega Atma (aka King of Despair) are no longer friends.
  • White Knight: It's rather easy to interpret Karjam's motivations in Episode 25 as this, despite Ellen's behaviour.
  • Word Salad Philosophy: His 'philosophy' boils down to this. To the surprise of nobody, people have called him out on it.
  • You Are the New Trend: King of Despair decides to use his "Miijam" as the template for his Memejams, much to Karjam's annoyance.

Ellen Van Zylle

Eternal Name:The Eternal Cat

First Appearance: Episode 14 (Revelation Turnabout)

  • An Ice Person: He has the powers to control ice, much like Shane.
  • Attention Whore: Could be considered this since she tends to derail threads to make them about her. Episode 25 starts out with Ellen asking the other members if she should kill herself.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: [[Her Mastermind image has these and combines them with aquamarine eyes..]]
  • Colour Motif: She uses a greenish-cyan to make her stand out from Shane.

  • Easily Forgiven: Despite revealing that she effectively manipulated Shane and caused a lot of trouble, the others pretend that the HRTs Incident never happened.
  • Friend to Psychos: Ellen is a Type III version of this because she is Shane's girlfriend. However Shane (and by extension, the rest of his sockpuppets. )) tend to act in a manipulative if not downright psychotic fashion.
  • Man Behind the Man: Turnabout Revelation reveals that she sent Aidan to torment Shane. This was part of a convoluted plot to get Shane to fall for her.
  • Palette Swap: Episode 20 Part 1 has a darker version of Ellen with dark eyes.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: She takes her obsession with Shane to the point where he seems to be the only person she's attracted to.
  • Sky Face: Episode 14's thumbnail depicts Ellen in the sky beside Shane,Karjam and Kim being crucified.
  • Stepford Smiler: Despite her depressive mood, she tries to appear happy.
  • The Eeyore: Much like Shane, she also suffers from depression. Though it's possible that she's faking it just to get attention.
  • Troubled Fetal Position: Episode 23 has 3 jumpscares which consist of an angelic version of Ellen in this position.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Wears cat themed thigh-highs.

  • Faking Amnesia: Though it's possible that she's faking her amnesia to evade the other Masterminds.
  • FanFic: She created a Dragon Riders fanfiction called Empty Memories. It's considered to be one of her best works.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: Her ex boyfriend Aidan aka The Eternal Darkness gets mad at her for not bringing the bread along.

  • Palette Swap: Episode 20 Part 1 has a darker version of Kim with dark eyes.
  • Playing with Fire: Her powers allow her to control the powers of fire.
  • Pyromaniac: King of Despair accuses her of being this during the Revelation Turnabout. It turns out to be untrue.

  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Once Kushagra tells him of the Vresun Conspiracy, he doesn't take it well. He eventually gets over it though.
  • Head Swap: His appearance on Episode 13's thumbnail portrays him as a red version of Bomberman with Alfasketer's logo as the head.
  • La Résistance: He and Kim are portrayed as this during Episode 13. The image in question has him and Kim fighting against The Eternal Despair.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: He and King of Despair both try to help Shane during the Rebellion Turnabout but are at each other's throats. They eventually settle their differences and become friends.
  • Palette Swap: Episode 13's thumbnail portrays him as a red version of Bomberman with his logo replacing the head.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • Despite being more willing to put up with King of Despair than Kushagra, even he ends up frustrated with King of Despair's utterly neurotic behaviour.
    • All the drama with Shane and learning about the Vresun Conspiracy causes him to leave, having decided to move on with his life.
  • Secret Test of Character: He disguises himself as Lord Sandwich during the Infinity Turnabout. Once he reveals himself, he ends up chewing King of Despair out for his aggression.
  • Spotting the Thread: Though not one for conspiracies, he ends up helping his fellow Discordians discover that Malice is a sockpuppet account.
  • Surreal Symbolic Heads: His avatar is his logo but any representations of him tend to use the logo as his head.
  • The Bus Came Back: Alfasketer reappears in Episode 23, mourning Shane's death.
  • True Companions: He and King of Despair end up becoming this overtime.
  • True Neutral: Doesn't bother with the chaos that ensues within Vresun, much preferring to do his own thing.
  • Wildcard: Much like Kushagra, he eventually becomes one of these.

Bloxxin

First Appearance: N/A

Eternal Name:The Eternal Kitten

  • Foil: Much like Karjam, he draws his own avatars but unlike Karjam he isn't overly serious and is anything but pretentious.
  • Funny Animal: Bloxxin is portrayed as a humanoid cat.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Owns several cats that he seems to dote on.
  • True Neutral: Much like Pteri and Polaris, he tends to be rather chill about life.
  • Voice of Reason: Ends up as this once King of Despair and Kushagra start to turn on each other during the Italian Turnabout.

Polaris

Eternal Name:N/A

Pteri

  • A Day in the Limelight: Pteri is the main character of Episode 4 and Episode 11.
  • Colour Motif: Pteri's colour for the series is yellow.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: His avatar is a yellow pony since he's a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
  • Palette Swap: His first avatar is a yellow version of Rainbow Dash with cyan, green and purple hair. The series itself uses a different appearance but keeps the colour scheme.
  • Rage Quit: He gets pissed at everyone after the Religious Turnabout shakes the forum status quo.
  • Reality Ensues: The entire ordeal with Karjam angers him enough that he leaves Vresun permanently. Much like Polaris, he's also sick of Shane's drama and stays far away from him. He also helps King of Despair much later to unravel the Vresun Conspiracy.
    • He and King don't get on for a while, because he isn't too fond of King's overzealous and dramatic behaviour during Season 2.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: His reaction to the whole Religious Turnabout? He leaves and never looks back.
  • Surreal Symbolic Heads: Episode 20.2 portrays him as a suited man with a horse's head.
  • True Neutral: Much like Bloxxin and Polaris, he doesn't side with anyone and much prefers to have fun.
  • Was Actually Friendly: It turns out that Pteri isn't all that bad. Once King of Despair buries the hatchet, Pteri is even willing to help him solve the Vresun Conspiracy.

  • Spin-Off: Some time after Vresun ended, Pierre Bruno became the main character in his own story. It has nothing to do with this series but it does incorporate its characters into the plot.

The Eternal Despair

Status:Alter Ego

First Appearance: Episode 13 (Rebellion Turnabout)

     Sockpuppet Accounts 

Caitlin/Hinata

Account Master: Kim Tyranto

  • Berserk Button: Mistaking them for the other tends to set them off. Unfortunately for a lot of people, it's very easy to confuse the two due to their similar behaviours.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Much like the Kraang, Caitlin speaks like this.
  • Invented Individual: Both of them are related to Kim and seem to act very similarly.
  • The Dividual: Despite being two different characters, they're effectively the same person. It doesn't help their case that both of them are related to Kim.

Lunaris

Account Master: Kim Tyranto

  • Faked Kidnapping: At point she says that she got kidnapped. Nothing ever comes of it and it's never mentioned again.
  • Invented Individual: Much like Malice, she's probably a sockpuppet as well.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her avatar Serene is seen in blue clothing.
  • Old Friend: She's a friend of Kim's which is likely to cover-up that she's a sockpuppet as well.

Shinica Malice

Account Master: Kim Tyranto

  • Blood Knight: Always tries to pick fights with people.
  • Invented Individual: It's quite telling that a quick Google search for her name only shows results related to Vresun.
    • In addition, she's similar to Shinica Horton (a character from the Lunar Shadow Project).
  • Miles Gloriosus: She isn't tough as she claims to be.
  • Never My Fault: Claims at one point that she got expelled at school because she was framed for getting into a fight. It's very likely that her expulsion was entirely her own fault.
  • Sock Puppet: It's discovered during the Memejam Turnabout that Malice is a sockpuppet, most likely created by Kim due to their connections.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her avatar Malice is seen in blue clothing.

Crizelda

Account Master:Ellen

  • Invented Individual: She's one of Ellen's sockpuppets designed to masquerade as her friend.

Io/Lilith Skye

Account Master:Ellen

  • Arc Villain: Io impersonates Lillith and proceeds to lock the Vresunians out of their own forum.
  • Faux Symbolism: You would think that their names would reference the Bible, right? Nope. King of Despair even points out that it was a missed opportunity.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After the whole incident, Io turns on the Eternals and joins Vresun.
  • Twin Switch: Io hijacks Lilith's account and pretends to be her, before taking Vresun under siege.

Karina Vanderskyff

Account Master: Bloom Seymour

  • Big Eater: Tends to go on about food, something which King of Despair exploits for his own amusement at one point.
  • Cool Big Sis: She establishes herself as this to Lynn Vanderskyff, being the only person she's afraid of.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Karina tends to speak like this every so often.

     Minor Characters and Original Characters 

Minor Characters

Cave Story Forumites

First Appearance:Episode 2: The Eternal Darkness

  • Forgettable Character: Fatih's reaction to The Eternal Darkness once Karjam brings him up.
  • Gratuitous Russian: Hina's first line is spoken in Russian. This was changed to an American accent because the Text-To-Speech used for her Russian accent proved annoying.
  • Put on a Bus: They're not seen again after the first few episodes and have yet to return to the series.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Once they leave, Season 1 becomes more serious since their presence is more comedic.

Original Characters

Shane's Soul/Shellen

First Appearance: Episode 23: A Neumann's Death

  • Demonic Possession: He possesses Ellen at the end of The Hijacking of Shane, though knowing Ellen, it was probably mutual.
  • Eldritch Abomination: As a distorted version of Shane's soul, he takes on a design that's similar to [[Video Game/Earthbound Giygas.]]
  • {{Expy:}} Intentionally designed to be one to Elder God Yoda, another Eldritch Abomination made by the same person who created the Twisted Cuts videos.
  • Final Boss: As Shellen, he is the final boss of Season 3.
  • Fusion Dance: Combines this with Demonic Possession during The Hijacking of Shane when he takes over Ellen's body to become Shellen.
  • Nightmare Face: Appears on Episode 28's thumbnail as this, because Shellen is the fusion of him and Ellen.
  • Original Generation: Was created for this series.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: He starts distorting into a Giygas-like form before lunging at the viewer.
