I am the stone that the builder refused
I am the visual, the inspiration that made Lady Sing the Blues

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
Cquote1.svg

Huey: Most people don't have the time or the energy to follow politics, and the government takes advantage of that. This country needs to keep a closer eye on Washington! We need to start holding our elected officials responsible for this mess!
Caesar: Wow... So who is our Congressman, Huey?
Huey: Who knows... Some punk...

I'm the spark that makes your idea bright
the same spark that lights the dark
so that you can know your left from your right

Uncle Ruckus (No Relation)

A description of the character goes here.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
Cquote1.svg

Uncle Ruckus: (Calmly) Say that again? I couldn't hear you over the sound of me shittin' myself.

Cquote2.svg
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Does this awesomely to his abusive dad in "The Color Ruckus".
  • Canon Immigrant: He was originally created for the show, but McGruder added him to the comic in the brief period between the show starting and the comic ending.
  • Characterization Marches On: Season 1 actually has moments where he seems completely aware that he's black. Refering to whites as "they" and blacks as "we" is a subtle example.
    • Other lines include "I was happy at the back of the buss" and "I would have shoot you myself but I realised the white man got better aim." Not to mention the episode "The Passion of Reverend Ruckus".
  • Continuity Nod: He's a reverend again in "Stinkmeaner Strikes Back".
Cquote1.svg

Uncle Ruckus: I am Reverend Father Uncle Ruckus. No relation.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Fan Girl: Of Usher and Barack Obama.
  • Hair of Gold
  • Hot Mom: Oh Yes. Especially in the cartoon.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She may be condescending and nagging of her husband, but she does care for him and apologizes to him whenever she goes too far.
  • Satellite Character: She's Tom's wife, Jazmine's mother, the Freeman's neighbor and every episode she's featured in deals with one of those facts.
  • Token White
  • Where Da Black Men At: In the comics, she only dated black men, eventually marrying Tom. She's still openly attracted to black men, notably Usher and President Obama in the show, much to Tom's dismay.

Luna

File:Attackofthekillerkungfuwolfbitch 5862.jpg

A description of the character goes here.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
Cquote1.svg
Cquote2.svg
  • Badass
  • Broken Bird: Crazy she may be, but the woman has been through absolute hell.
  • Cute and Psycho
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Troubled would be an understatement for this girl: beside from being Raised by Wolves, Luna has suffered every type of abuse in every relationship she's been in. It doesn't help that she grew up in a broken home with an abusive father.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Like her mother, Luna was severely abused over the slightest things, whether the cooking was cold and the laundry was done wrong.
    • Her friend Nicole doesn't help either; she suggested that Luna should just outright kill Granddad just for cutting their weekend short.
Cquote1.svg

Nicole: Now remember, this is not your fault. This man took your weekend from you. Two days you'll never get back! You gotta kill him.

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

BITCH, THIS CHICKEN IS COLD!

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Luna: I will rape your grandfather with this broomstick!

Cquote2.svg
    • It's also implied she's also suffered this during that summer with Jim Brown.
  • She Fu: She beats the living shit out of Huey, chokes out Granddad, and tosses Tom across the room by the neck with her legs.
    • Waif Fu: Luna is also much stronger than she looks, as she is seen a flashback beating the crap of a guy three times her size in the Kumite (HIYAA!) flashback and rips his heart right out of his chest. She also laments wiping the floor with Huey by punching a hole in the wall.
  • Skilled but Naive: A literal example; she's practically a trained killer, but easily fell for Granddad's Fidel Castro lie.
  • Stepford Smiler: Type C.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: Her friend Nicole is the epitome of this trope.
  • Tragic Villain: Despite her actions, she's at heart a very mentally ill woman who has went through hell for most of her life. To make things even worse, she suffers a pretty heavy Heel Face Door Slam.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Her "friendly sparring match" with Huey wasn't so friendly... for Huey, that is.
  • Wham! Line:
Cquote1.svg

Luna: I thought you were going to say that I was crazy and you didn't want to see me again like the others.

Cquote2.svg
  • Woman Scorned: She rose hell when she found out Granddad lied to her about attending Fidel Castro's birthday party.
  • Yandere: And how.

Otis "Thugnificent" Jenkins

File:Thugnificent 2449.jpg

A description of the character goes here.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • A Bro To His Men
  • Ascended Extra: Albeit slightly - having only appeared in 3 episodes in Season 2, he appeared in 5 episodes for Season 3.
  • Auto-Tune: Uses it in his album "Mo' Bitches, Mo' Problems". Which fails spectacularly since he uses it in all his songs.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Even after getting kicked out of Granddad's house, he still managed to come to the rescue in "Fried Chicken Flu".
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Bitches to Rags".
  • Drives Like Crazy
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Kind of. That song "Booty Butt Cheeks" you hear throughout Season 1? He made that.
  • Important Haircut: After he sells his home, he loses the "Mickey Mouse" afro.
  • Incoming Ham: The Running Gag of his arrival being heralded by a glass-shatteringly loud rendition of one of his own songs.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Riley.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's an irresponsible idiot, but he's probably one of the nicest characters in the series.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Gets his buddy fired from his job, due to No Such Thing as HR.
    • And again when he visit a Asian friend for help for his failing career and instantly got it just from simply asking. The thing though he brought Ed Wuncler III with him since he thought it was a drug deal. When Ed realized he wasn't getting any money out of it...yeah.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor In Sense: A good showman but due to trying to preserve his image, not the smartest when it comes to money. Ultimately derails his music career in season three.
  • Riches to Rags: The episode title is a even a play off the name.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Gets off to a rocky start with Granddad, but eventually they put aside their differences. This is especially apparent after Otis gives up his "Thugnificent" persona.
Cquote1.svg

Thugnificent: Old man, I know I told you to go eat dicks in the past, but you alright with me.

Cquote2.svg

Gangstalicious

File:Gangstalicious 1489.jpg

A description of the character goes here.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Armored Closet Gay
  • Broken Pedestal: Zigzagged. On one hand, Riley's perception of him as a tough rapper has been destroyed when his Jerkass Facade and homosexuality gets unveiled. However, he still likes to listen to his music, and they are very friendly to each other despite that.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: His videos make him out to be a lot bigger than he actually is.
Cquote1.svg

Riley: Damn nigga, you short.
