When Ellen and Archie grew older in the second life dimension, they got into a relationship.

—EGS Main Story Comic for 2010-12-01
Arthur J. Arthur is the former and current head of the Moperville local FBI branch of paranormal investigators. He is also a renowned author, and presents himself to the general public as a skeptic and former consultant to the FBI as part of his strategy to keep the paranormal secret. He preceded Mr. Verres in the position, and came out of retirement to succeed him. Tedd has met him when he was younger. He is not opposed to revealing the existence of magic if it is unavoidable that it would be revealed eventually, but is intent on keeping the accessibility of magic secret. He also chose to allow local police and teenagers to fight a dragon rather than reveal that the Federal government has magic users. As said by Jerry, he is more concerned with keeping secrets than helping people.
The first drawings of Arthur were intended as being for a different character, but Dan liked the design and wanted to use it for this character as opposed to Sirleck's host. Arthur's character originally had longer hair, which Dan felt made him look too similar to Sirleck's host, so Dan edited the comic to give Arthur shorter hair.
He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2010-11-29.
He values the needs of the many over the few to a somewhat frightening degree. It’s easier for him to do that when he distances himself from the few, however. He is also willing to make sacrifices in the short term for what he expects to be a better long term. He’s also got a bit of nationalism to him in that he’s proud to be an American and a lot of what he’s willing to do is to protect the freedom of (most) of its people.

—EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-07-23 ("Oh No... Beta!")
Beta Ellen is the alternate of Elliot in the "beta" dimension.

Chika is another scientist working at Germahn Labs.

Plotting potential jokes that could play off of that, her name was chosen. She also has a watch that can redistribute shrink energy. She has "experimented" with her sexual preference, but the results are her business. She has a tendency to answer reader's questions prematurely without realizing it.

—EGS Main Story Comic for 2008-06-13 ("Stepping Out of His Shell")
Dick is a student at Moperville North seen making fun of Tedd alongside Tony. He also made fun of Susan and didn't care what her name was; he was also not sorry after Tedd made his speech defending her. According to Dan, his name pretty much sums him up, and since it's an actual name some people have, Dan can get away with naming him Dick. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2006-08-07 ("Oh, @$#%!").
- "Oh, and thanks for the bikini peek, Nanase."
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2003-03-12 ("Duck's Apology")
Duck is a junior high student who hangs out with his friends (including Bill) to play collectible card games at Justin's store. His unusual nickname is derived from the hat he wears that makes him look like a duck and once had the word duck on it. (no relation to the Demonic Duck) Duck has the habit of using the word "gay" as a derogatory term for anything he doesn't like or deems uncool. Upon discovering that Justin is gay, he apologizes for this, stating that people shouldn't be looked down upon just because they're different; the X-Men have taught him well.
After over hearing Nanase talk about her girlfriend, Duck told his friends that the dream of dating Nanase was over but something magical had taken its place. Grace starting to work in shop didn't escape his attention.

—EGS:NP Comic for 2017-03-01
Felix is a friend of Kitty's, who Kitty called after losing track of Rhoda and Catalina,and then accidentally turned into catgirl.

Damien's callous disregard for Guyur, whom Grace considered her father, caused the latter to attack him at the climax of the Painted Black arc. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2003-09-10 ("Crying On The Inside").

Mark is a rat-like figure and a character from one of Dan's old comics from before El Goonish Shive. One consolation, though: he did make at least this character chart.
Although this information does not appear in EGS, we know that his name is Mark, and that he is one of "three evil rat things", though none of them were actually evil. In the words of Dan himself: "His only defining characteristic was being zany and dressing like a hippy for some reason... originally, they all dressed in medieval garb for some reason. His one brother was a fencer, and the other was deathly afraid of bananas. I'm not sure why they were a mixture of reptiles and rats as opposed to just being rats, but there's a lot about those three that didn't make much sense."  He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-05-31 ("Characters Of Comic Past").
Matt and RatEdit
- "I'm Rat; to my left is Matt. So, you're the hacks who are the stars of the comic that is rightfully ours?!"
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-05-30 ("Wow... Freaky")
Matt and Rat were stars of one of Dan's previous comics. Currently they are students at Moperville North, and seemed to be the only characters permanently aware of the fact that they are in a comic, but some time after their last appearance, they got treated for their shared psychosis and became productive members of society, no longer having the distinction of being aware of their fictional nature. They first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-05-30 ("Wow... Freaky").
Matthew William CohenEdit
- "Well, that certainly wasn't my intention."
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2012-03-16
Matthew is the Student Body President of Moperville North, who appears to have developed a crush on Susan after her outburst following the announcement of the new school dress code. On May 27th, he asked her out on a date. He is named after Matt Groening, David X. Cohen, and Billy West. He delivers pizza despite being only 17 (as of Grace's birthday, at least), a single year under the age requirement for delivering things by car.

Minion is Dan's Uryuom minion; the duties of a minion are strikingly similar to those of an Administrative Assistant, but with higher pay. Minion is dry-witted, level-headed, and usually a foil to whatever weirdness Dan has going on. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2003-04-02 ("The April Madness Continues").
Dr. Physics Professor Edit
Dr. Physics Professor is unspecified professor probably from Moperville. He appeared twice crying because something physically impossible which he didn't know about happened - namely, Fire monster being solid fire that doesn't burn in EGS Main Story Comic for 2010-10-04 and Fire monster being extinguished by water in EGS Main Story Comic for 2010-10-11. Later, he was commenting the Taurcanis Draco incident in EGS Main Story Comic for 2011-06-20. He's dressed as the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who.
Mr. Pompoms's mistressEdit
Mr. Pompoms's mistress was a woman whom a very young Susan found her father cheating on her mother with. The fact that Mr. Pompoms's mistress is a blonde is a large factor in Susan's decision to dye her hair.
Since her appearance in a flashback in the After Party is titled "The Other Woman With Susan's Face," there is a possibility she could be Susan and Diane's birth mother. On the other hand, memory is fallible and Susan has gone to great lengths for most of her life not to look like the woman she found with her father. She first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2004-08-13 ("Susan's Dream, Part I").
Rick is a college student who has known Diane and her adopted sister Rhea for a long time, at least since Diane was six.

His first appearance was in EGS Main Story Comic for 2013-05-31.
Rhea is Diane's adoptive older sister. After Ellen and Nanase solved the mystery of the Haunted Locker Room, she invited them to her New Year's party. She first appeared in the Family Tree story line on EGS Main Story Comic for 2013-05-08.
Ronin is the not yet named friend of Tony shown several times with him, trying to be politically correct but apparently missing the point of WHY people are supposed to be politically correct. In Identity, someone using the screen name "Ronin and some numbers" wrote an unbelievably long comment without a single spelling or punctuation error under one of internet video reviews Susan and Elliot had made, starting the rumor that Elliot was gay. Characters - mainly Sarah - tried, without success, to find the identity of the person, but at the end of the storyline it was shown that it had been this not yet named friend of Tony. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-09-23 ("Tony In Trouble").
Sandi is a stereotypical blond girl who speaks in a valley girl accent. She is the girlfriend of Tony, and a member of Susan's feminist group. She left the group after it became unpopular and more demanding, but joined again when Tedd yelled at the students for not supporting Susan's attempts at uniform reform. She isn't unintelligent, but she appears to be very naive. She first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2008-05-07 ("Defection").
Science Teacher is the teacher at Moperville North who was the one who instructed Tedd to create the goo that would come to life as the First Goo. He was also the one who suggested to Principal Verrückt to get the sprinklers fixed. He laughed at Elliot while he was female and at the latter's theory that teachers actually cared about their students, but was subdued when faced with Ellen's wrath. He was last seen outside the school shivering in the cold and annoyed at Principal Verrückt's obsession with murals to the exclusion of all else. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-01-28 ("Not Again").
Screaming Blonde GirlEdit
- "I just saw an evil monkey at Moperville North High School!!"

The Screaming Blonde Girl is a student of Moperville North. She is not someone you want to be anywhere near in a crisis. Quick to panic, she'll manage to cause the crowd to run around in blind panic in just seconds. She has animal control on speed dial; raccoons sometimes get in her attic. May have been the Theater Clerk's only catch. She first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-10-12 ("More Questions Than Answers").
Dr. Sciuridae is the father of the original Grace. Dr. Sciuridae was so distraught after she died that he added her DNA to the mix when the shady organization he was working for was creating their fourth lycanthrope, which resulted in the creation of the Grace we all know and love. Dr. Sciuridae was an informant for the government in infiltrating that organization, which is how he knew Tedd's father, whom he asked to take care of Grace. He currently living with Grace's brothers at a government testing facility. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2003-08-19 ("Oh, Great... Another Guy Hidden In Shadows...") as silhouette and on EGS Main Story Comic for 2004-02-14 ("The Scientist Who Missed Damien") normally.
The Shop Monster, also known as the Gypsy Woman, has appeared in two NP story arcs. She has large elf-like ears and a lizard-like tail, and has been seen to sport a mustache (presumably a disguise). In the first she knowingly sold Tedd a cursed game because she was greedy. In the second she sold Tedd a magic wand that seemingly did nothing from the perspective of its user and the people whom it affected but in fact warped reality.
Her shop stocks a variety of magical items, including a toothbrush that transforms one's teeth and jaws with every use, shrink soda, femme cola, furry juice and the cursed boardgame before she sold it to Tedd. A would-be shoplifter discovered she was stealing shrink soda the hard way. In her second appearance, she was selling discounted magic items at a table in the mall. The items, like the wand she sold Tedd, contained great power, but appeared to do nothing. She first appeared in EGS:NP Comic for 2004-06-26 ("Goonmanji - Part III").
Sirleck is a body snatcher aberration who is allied with Magus. He is parasitic and currently possess an old man who would have died if he was not possessed by Sirleck. "Sirleck" is an anagram of "Lickers". "Stone Lickers" is the literal translation of Lamprey. Lampreys are blood sucking parasites; Sirleck is, in essence, named after them. It is implied that he played a hand in Ellen's creation; specifically, he bribed the security guard at the PTTAPUTASF. He can communicate with beings on the spiritual plane independently from his host. Beings on the physical plane see only his host, not him. He can change hosts at will. Like all aberrations, Sirleck used to be human and used magic to voluntarily become an aberration in order to achieve immortality. It is possible that Sirleck is plotting to use Magus as a EGS Main Story Comic for 2010-08-13 ("new host once he gets his body back"). He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2010-04-09.
a puppet a superhero from the comic Classic Sporkman. He arrived at EGS-Con 2006 to stop the fight between Melonpool and Susan. A movie is made later named Sporkman Begins, which was apparently a betrayal to the source material. In the movie, Sporkman is "a billionaire playboy who is forced to use gamma radiation to turn himself into a half-spork superhero in order to dig his way out of a cave after he is trapped there by the mobster who murdered his parents". According to Susan and Elliot, it took itself seriously when it should've been funny, apparently making it even funnier. Susan's final consensus is that "It's bad. You should watch it." He first appeared in EGS:NP Comic for 2006-08-29 ("EGS-Con 2006 - Part XIX").
Steve Troop is the creator of Melonpool and attendee of EGS-Con 2006. He is first heard in EGS:NP Comic for 2006-08-17 ("EGS-Con 2006 - Part XIV"), but first appears in EGS:NP Comic for 2006-09-02 ("EGS-Con 2006 - Part XXI").
- "Screw morality!"
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2005-01-17 ("If This Wasn't A Comic, This Would Be A Sign Of Severe Schizophrenia")
Susan's Curiosity is an anthropomorphic personification of Susan's curiosity. She exists only in Susan's imagination and, along with Susan's Logic, is akin to the good angel/bad angel device. Her appearance is that of a catgirl. She first appeared to convince Susan to go to Grace's birthday party. She reappeared in a NP comic having picked up several sizable bags of swag while Susan had run. She also joined the others when commenting that Susan shouldn't reacted as they did to Matthew William Cohen asking her out. She first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2005-01-14 ("Yay! I've Been Looking Forward To This Bizarre Sequence For Months!").
- "I knew I'd be useless at this party."
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2006-06-28 ("Love Cares Not for the Woes of Logic")
Susan's Logic is of the same nature as Susan's Curiosity, but for Susan's logical side. Her appearance is that of a Vulcan from Star Trek.

Susan's Nature and NurtureEdit
Susan's Nature and Nurture are of the same nature as Susan's Curiosity and Logic but with anthropomorphic personifications of her natural nature, and who she's been nurtured to become, respectively, instead of curiosity and logic. Unlike her Curiosity and Logic, Susan does not consciously acknowledge her Nature and Nurture. In appearance, her Nature is a blonde version of Susan with bright clothes, while her Nurture has blue hair and darker-colored clothes. They appeared to show Susan's mental conflict over how she should respond to Tedd's show of support for her cause during the uniform plot of Sister.

Not-Tengu is magic user responsible for Identity story line.

He's the one who transformed most party guests to look like Nanase, then fight her and Ellen and is defeated due to them consuming all available magic in area and revealing his real, human form. Previously, he fought Noriko, the legendary monster hunter with a long family history of fighting monsters and evil wizards. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2013-07-10.

The Theater Clerk or T.C. is a clerk at the movie theatre, and is a year younger than the main cast. T.C. thinks he's quite the ladies man, calling himself Da Playah, but, in truth, no sane Y-chromosome-lacking human being would even consider going out with him (nor Y-chromosome-possessing human beings, even if he would be interested). He may have gotten lucky with the Panicked Schoolgirl, but it's doubtful anything actually happened. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-02-14 ("The Only Thing That Guy Plays Is Video Games").

- "What the hell do computers have to do with his gayness?"
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2005-04-08 ("This Isn’t The First Time Tedd’s Been Accused Of This")
Tony is a stereotyped jock jerk: a football player at Moperville North who often picks on Tedd. He seems to be incapable to learn from his mistakes, which is evident by his insistence on bullying Tedd, despite suffering the wrath of Tedd's friends on numerous occasions as a result. Grace believes he has a repressed attraction to Tedd, which him thinking Grace as Tedd without glasses is cute, and staring at Tess in Oblivious Wand Waving, confirms and supports, respectively. He is currently dating Sandi.
Tony is often seen with a black friend who has yet to be named but uses "Ronin" as screen name. He tries to offset Tony's negative attitude. He was probably one of the first friends of Elliot before third grade. Elliot has reasons why gay-bashing makes him loosing his self-control and not being friends with Tony is one reason for that. (It's not explicitly said in the comic.) He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-05-28 ("The Real Reason For The Male/Female Options On The TF Gun").

Unusagi is one of the characters of the cancelled "Lucky Bunny Bounty Show", Greg's favorite anime. Unusagi is said to bring luck, which is why Travis hangs out with her. Unfortunately, luck doesn't necessarily mean good luck. Her name pretty much means "luck bunny" in Japanese. As frightening as it may seem, that wouldn't even be an unlikely name for a character in an anime... She first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-04-21.
- "Nein! The school budget is to be spent on murals!!! Murals I say!!!"
—EGS Main Story Comic for 2002-02-08 ("I Wonder How Long Ago That Was...")

Principal Washington is the principal of Moperville South. He appears to be a bit more level-headed than Principal Verrückt, despite his students including magic users, female duplicates, part squirrels, and unnecessarily mysterious guys with strange hair. On top of that, he also has some strange characters in his staff! Originally his character had an eye patch and horrible scarring, but Dan decided against it. He first appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2008-02-22 ("Why the Raven Has Perched").

- "The current known record for number of parents to a single child is twelve, and only nine of those were uryuoms."

William and Gillian are uryuoms and US citizens by birth. They enlisted the help of the government so that they could look more like humans, which brought them into contact with Mr. Verres. They asked him if he could help them modify a transformation device that would be illegal to sell so that it could impose forms on people regardless of what they originally looked like, something that is known as clone form technology. Tedd, overhearing the conversation, volunteered to undertake the modification, which ultimately resulted in the TF Gun some years later. They frist appeared in EGS Main Story Comic for 2003-08-26 ("Way Of The Squirrel").
