Characters are the living entities that populate the game world including players and NPCs. Playable characters, as the name implies, are characters that players can play as and are chosen at the beginning of the game. Some characters must be unlocked before they can be chosen. NPCs stands for "non-player characters". These characters refer to the various AIs seen on every level in-game and are not directly controlled by the player.

Playable Characters[edit | edit source]

Below is a list of currently playable characters.
Character Stats Unlock Special Ability Traits Starting Items Description
Assassin.png
Assassin

Endurance: 1 Speed: 4 Melee: 1 Firearms: 2

  • Clear a level without killing anyone and without alerting anyone.
Stealthily moves through the shadows and murders people from behind. One day dreamed of assassinating a president or military leader, but has so far had to settle for rich old ladies and the occasional rich feline heir. Hey, a job's a job! When the Assassin heard about the growing unrest against the mayor, a murderous spirit within was renewed!
Bartender.png
Bartender

Endurance: 3 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 3

  • Drink 10 alcoholic beverages in a single game.
  • None
Everyone loves the friendly Bartender! One of the few people willing to listen to you drone on about how your job is crap, the opposite sex doesn't like you, and you're thinking of 'ending it all in a rain of gunfire and carnage'. Blah blah blah! But the bartender remains understanding and discrete to their core. Fun fact, the Bartender also serves alcohol.
Cannibal.png
Cannibal

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 3 Firearms: 2

  • Kill 20 in a single level.
The result of inbreeding, toxic sludge, and internet videos of animals being kept in tiny cramped spaces before being turned into fast food. The Cannibal finds it morally unjustifiable to eat animal meat, but it's just so tasty! There is only so much tofu one can take before they snap. Fun fact: Human meat is apparently very sweet tasting
Comedian.png
Comedian

Endurance: 1 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 2

Whether expounding on the differences between races or lamenting a recent online date gone hi-lariously bad, the Comedian has no shortage of worldview-expanding and totally non-hacky material. While their jokes can be polarizing at times, the comedian lives to be loved, and won't be happy until everyone laughs DAMMIT!
Cop.png
Cop

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 3

  • Bribe 3 Cops (can be done over multiple runs).
Follows the Law of the Land unflinchingly, even if it doesn't always make perfect sense. Despite this, the Cop became disenchanted with the current government after a law was passed preventing more than four people from dancing side by side, sadly forcing the Cop's Village People cover group to disband.
Doctor.png
Doctor

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 1 Firearms: 2

  • Starting Class
One of the few true pacifists in this dangerous world. Indeed, the Doctor is very skilled at 'pacifying' people. With chloroform. But business is currently booming, what with all the beating being administered by Cops since the Mayor's new "Law of the Land" was put in place. Despite the extra cash flow, the Doctor would rather the streets be safe, and has decided to join the Resistance.
Firefighter.png
Firefighter

Endurance: 3 Speed: 3 Melee: 2 Firearms: 2

  • Extinguish 5 fires in a single run.
Fire hoses are pretty effective, but they're so big and unwieldy! So, what's a more efficient solution? According to the Mayor: chop off the arms of Firefighters and install state-of-the-art Water Cannons on the nub. While this has led to a moderate improvement in fire control effectiveness, it has caused Firefighter morale to plummet, what with the all the unwanted mutilation and such.
Gangster.png
Gangster (Crepe)

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 3

  • Starting Class
  • None
Joined the Crepes after witnessing their mother being murdered at the hands of a Blahd. Actually, it wasn't a Blahd, it was just a naked man with extreme full-body rosacea. And it wasn't a murder, they were just fornicating! The Gangster probably needs to have their vision checked.
GangsterB.png
Gangster (Blahd)

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 3

  • None
Joined the Blahds after witnessing their father being murdered at the hands of a Crepe. Actually, it wasn't a Crepe, it was just a naked woman doing Avatar cosplay. And it wasn't a murder, they were just fornicating! The Gangster probably needs to have their vision checked.
Gorilla.png
Gorilla

Endurance: 4 Speed: 4 Melee: 4 Firearms: 1

This beast was raised in a science lab and given experimental drugs that made them hyper-intelligent. Lacks the ability to speak English and smells like your Uncle Denny's used toilet brush, but they're super-fast and ridiculously strong. Hates scientists with a burning passion, a sentiment that goes both ways.
Hacker.png
Hacker

Endurance: 1 Speed: 3 Melee: 1 Firearms: 2

  • Starting Class
Has ambitions of hacking the planet, but will realistically settle for your parents' webcam. What Hacker worth their weight in salt doesn't want to take down the system? Joining the Resistance was a no-brainer for this societal outcast. Also no-brainers: Cheetos and not showering. .....Stereotypes.
InvestmentBanker.png
Investment Banker

Endurance: 2 Speed: 3 Melee: 3 Firearms: 3

  • Hold 500 money at once in a run.
  • None
"Greed is good! So are drugs!" This is the motto that the Investment Banker lives by. Predictably, this has led them to significant wealth and a crippling drug addiction... Party party party! It's an extreme lifestyle (And gameplay style) that's not for everyone.
Jock.png
Jock

Endurance: 4 Speed: 3 Melee: 4 Firearms: 1

  • Achieve destruction level 75 in a single level.
When not administering wedgies, swirlies, and Indian sunburns to nerds, the Jock enjoys running into walls at high speeds. When scientists contended that this behavior destroys brain cells, the Jock passionately argued that it actually RESTORES brain cells, ironically giving more validity to the scientists' claims. Scientists backed down after receiving the most severe purple nurples of their lives.
Scientist.png
Scientist

Endurance: 1 Speed: 2 Melee: 1 Firearms: 2

  • None
Has devoted their life to advancing science and torturing gorillas. As a result of the former, the Scientist has acquired a number of fun toys to take on their adventure. While they would probably prefer to be testing these toys on caged gorillas in the name of scientific progress (read: undiagnosed sadism), the Scientist has joined the Resistance due to the Mayor cutting beaker allowances to 1 per laboratory.
Shapeshifter.png
Shapeshifter

Endurance: 1 Speed: 4 Melee: 1 Firearms: 1

  • Beat any floor with 5 different characters.
The Shapeshifter has been sent to Earth from the heavens to clean up the mess caused by the Mayor. Unfortunately, the Shapeshifter's earthly appearance is that of a demonic-looking little naked person (it's just pink eye, OK?), which is not really ideal for functioning in society. Fortunately, the Possession Stone allows the ShapeShifter to hop into and out of people's bodies, making life on Earth a whole lot easier!
Shopkeeper.png
Shopkeeper

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 4

  • Spend 1500 money (can be done over multiple runs).
  • None
Is often known for being very critical of his fellow roguelike shopkeepers, referring to his contemporaries who set up shop in the middle of dungeons as "frigging idiots with no common sense". Prefers to do business in populated areas that aren't surrounded by deadly monsters.
Slavemaster.png
Slavemaster

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 3

  • Purchase 4 Slaves (can be done over multiple runs).
The warmest, gentlest slavemaster one could ever hope to have. Captives have been known to exclaim "12 years a slave? Heck, make it an even 20!" Actually, that has never once happened. As for all the form-fitting leather? .. Well, everybody has their thing, ok?
SlumDweller.png
Slum Dweller

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 1 Firearms: 2

  • Starting Class
  • None
Starting from nothing, the humble Slum Dweller is willing to rise up and do whatever it takes to make it in this crazy world. This typically involves beating up random people for their cash, and scouring trash barrels for bacon cheeseburgers. A true personification of the American Dream!
Soldier.png
Soldier

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 3 Firearms: 4

  • Starting Class
  • None
The Soldier aspires to fight for the city. Unfortunately there are no wars going on right now. So why not create one? That's where the Resistance comes in. Rather than sitting around twiddling their thumbs, the soldier will now have the opportunity to fight the good fight -- and maybe even commit a few atrocities in the process! Hoo-ah!!!
Supercop.png
Supercop

Endurance: 4 Speed: 3 Melee: 3 Firearms: 4

  • The Law
  • Note: No XP loss from arresting innocents.
Follows the Law of the Land unflinchingly, even if it doesn't always make perfect sense. Despite this, the Cop became disenchanted with the current government after a law was passed preventing more than four people from dancing side by side, sadly forcing the Cop's Village People cover group to disband.
Thief.png
Thief

Endurance: 1 Speed: 4 Melee: 2 Firearms: 2

  • Starting Class
Pretty much the worst thief who has ever lived. Actually dresses in stereotypical burglar garb. Ridiculous. This was done out of tremendous insecurities -- they thought it would make them feel like more of a professional criminal. It didn't. Will the Thief ever conquer their imposter syndrome?
UpperCruster.png
Upper-Cruster

Endurance: 3 Speed: 3 Melee: 1 Firearms: 1

  • None
Starting from nothing, the humble Slum Dweller is willing to rise up and do whatever it takes to make it in this crazy world. This typically involves beating up random people for their cash, and scouring trash barrels for bacon cheeseburgers. A true personification of the American Dream!
Vampire.png
Vampire

Endurance: 2 Speed: 4 Melee: 3 Firearms: 2

Sucks people's blood not out of absolute necessity, but is actually just a really picky eater. This pickiness extends to the Vampire's social circles. Recently overheard: "Why does this zombie keep texting me to hang out? It's like, dude, just cause we're both undead doesn't mean we're besties. All you do is whine about politics."
Werewolf.png
Werewolf

Endurance: 1 Speed: 1 Melee: 1 Firearms: 1

Up until this point, the Werewolf has only used their powers for two things: 1. Winning high school basketball games, and 2. Viciously mauling people. Werewolf does not consider either of these things to be a worthwhile use of thier time, and feels like their life is stuck in a rut. Thanks to the Resistance. they'll hopefully be able to use their powers for some good -- all while having a howl-ingly good time!
Wrestler.png
Wrestler

Endurance: 4 Speed: 1 Melee: 4 Firearms: 1

Manhandling, smashing, beating -- all in a day's work for the simple-minded but strong-of-heart Wrestler! But in truth, this behavior stems from the Wrestler's severe frustrations with the world. Why has the mayor banned playful roughhousing? Why do so many businesses frown upon shirtlessness? Why do books have all those stupid words in them? AAARRRGH!!!
Zombie.png
Zombie

Endurance: 1 Speed: 1 Melee: 3 Firearms: 1

  • None
The Zombie doesn't actually want to eat people's brains. I mean that's pretty gross. However, society expects it. Society also demands that "normies" try to stab Zombies in the head with an axe. It's a vicious cycle. Zombies also wish that they were cool enough to hang out with Vampires -- but as everyone knows, Vampires can be pretty aloof!
Mobster.png
Mobster

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 3

  • None
The Mobster lives by several guiding principles: Cash is king, family is forever, and dinner is divine. Breaking this balanced trifecta of money, loyalty, and heaping helpings of carbohydrates would make for one cranky criminal. With mayoral power, cash and noodles are guaranteed to flow freely for the Mobster and their clan.
RobotC.png
Robot

Endurance: 3 Speed: Rechargeable Melee: Rechargeable Firearms: Rechargeable

Most Robots have specific roles, like "cop", or "butler". but sadly the engineers behind this Robot forgot to give it a purpose. Combine this with an uncommonly low battery life, and you've got a formula for an inferiority complex. However, since joining the Resistance the Robot has seemingly found their purpose: Become Mayor and bring about judgement day. Or alternatively, discover what love is, and rule with benevolence.
Alien
Alien

Endurance: 3 Speed: 3 Melee: Near harmless Firearms: Near harmless

  • Buy DLC
  • None
After crash landing in the city, the Alien took one look around and exclaimed "UiMeRmo bOdEglz", which translates roughly yo "i feel really sick from that flight, but i'm going to try to hold in my stomach so as not to make a bad first impression." The effort was a failure. Fortunately, the resistance took pity on the Alien despite the terrible faux pas, and is helping them get back to their home planet.
Bouncer.png
Bouncer

Endurance: 4 Speed: 2 Melee: 3 Firearms: 3

  • Buy Dlc
The Bouncer has finally hit pay dirt, having been hired by a major record label to escort one of their biggest stars to Mayor Village. Unfortunately, the pair have gotten off on the wrong foot, following a heated argument about whether nu-metal is dead or just hibernating. This resulted in the Bouncer picking up a cookie and threatening to do something very vulgar with it "Bizkit style". Will these two mismatch partners ever see eye to eye?
Guard.png
Goon

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 3 Firearms: 3

Supergoon

Endurance: 3 Speed: 3 Melee: 3 Firearms: 4

MechPilot.png
Mech Pilot

Endurance: 1 Speed: 4 Melee: 1 Firearms: 1

  • Buy DLC
Being nice doesn't always get the job done. The Mech Pilot takes zero-tolerance to approach to cleaning up the city, acting as judge, jury, and executioner. OK, pretty much entirely executioner. Having already gained a reputation of their unique brand of street justice, the city's undesirables are ready to take on this hulking grim reaper, while the city's law enforcers are ready to ignore you in favor of making their lives easier
Demolitionist.png
Demolitionist

Endurance: 2 Speed: 2 Melee: 2 Firearms: 2

  • Buy DLC
  • None
Why build when you can destroy? After flunking out of architecture school in their second to last semester. The Demolitionist has spent the past few years taking their revenge on every standing structure in sight. Upon becoming Mayor. The Demolitionist hopes to take aim at the real enemy by canceling all student loan debt.
