As A Whole:

  • Kid Hero: Nearly the entire group consists of children, including the captain.

    Zachary Higgins 

Zachary "Zach" Higgins

  • Badass Normal: Despite being probably the most normal person in WUC, Zachary takes on malignant alien overlords, evil androids, and authoritarian societies on the regular.
  • The Gunslinger: His main weapon is not one, but two revolvers. At fourteen years old.
  • The Leader: Zachary Higgins is the leader of the STARBORD group, often manning the ship himself.
  • Parental Abandonment: From a very early age, Zachary's father had been missing from his life, the only thing in his life relating directly back to his father being the ship he pilots, the STARBORD.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: Subverted. It is made apparent that because of his frequent adventuring, Zachary doesn't have an active school life, much to the distress of his mother.

    Jonathan Joestar 

Jonathan Joestar

  • Alternate Universe: WUC follows the same continuity as the original Phantom Blood, in which Jonathan Joestar dies in the end after a final confrontation with the bodyless head of Dio Brando, however this version of Jonathan hails from an alternate timeline in which he survives.
  • The Big Guy: Subverted, sort of. Jojo doesn't represent a stereotypical big guy, but he does exhibit signs of being a Gentle Giant, often acting as a sort of father figure for Zachary.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Jonathan Joestar appears through a temporal rip, transporting him from the past to the present (2066 in WUC's case). As such, he is subject to the changes in society brought upon by a century of human development.

    Penelope Bartlett 

Penelope "Penny" Bartlett

  • Socially Awkward Hero: Penny barely has any friends outside of the STARBORD crew, and often falls behind when it comes to social interactions with others.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Aside from her normal superpowered form, Penny also has a more bestial form in which an animalistic, ravenous persona takes over.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: Generally more faithful to the trope than Zach, considering that they live quite a few states away and she doesn't have a trans-dimensional spaceship at the ready, evil usually has to come her way.



    Arya Stark/Mathael 
  • Bio-Augmentation: Malthael begins to genetically modify Arya's internal anatomy to resemble an Angel's the longer he's inside Arya's body, simply by his presence alone. An example of this is that her body no longer contains a single drop of blood. When she's injured in any way, the skin around the wound disintegrates into metallic dust and heavenly light seeps through the open wound.
  • Mind Rape: Often a tactic employed by Arya Stark upon her victims. And Sansa Stark upon Arya.
  • Willing Channeler: Arya Stark willingly allows the Angel Malthael of the Diablo franchise to possess her body in order to take revenge for the apparent death of Jon Snow at the hands of Dark Phoenix.

    Sansa Stark/Dark Phoenix 
  • Many Spirits Inside of One: Sansa Stark had long struggled with the Phoenix Force within her. Adding her deceased serial rapist/torturer husband Ramsay Bolton's soul into her psyche allowed this altered variant of the Force a more "mentally-appropriate" mind to bond with, causing horrific results.
  • Fallen Hero: In the mythos of WUC, the Phoenix represents the spirit of the First Valkyr, originally responsible for imprisoning Aldruidt eons ago in order to protect the living creatures of the omniverse. However, through time, her opinion on mortals soured as soon as she saw their bad side, and thus is no longer willing to serve as their hero.
