Characters that appear as part of other characters' animations or skillsets, but are not counted as separate characters themselves.
A duck of a rare breed said to lay golden eggs. He was given to Rowan with the intent of being a wedding present for him and Peggy. Though he's male and thus doesn't lay eggs at all, Rowan paints ordinary eggs gold to take advantage of his customers' not knowing how to tell a male and female duck apart.
Knights that accompany Peggy and aid her in battle. No story details about them are given.
A ginger tabby cat belonging to Angelo that he met while traveling with his father, he has been his constant companion ever since. A lover of adventure, he has grown sluggish in the wake of Angelo's relatively recent fame, and this change in his behavior was the catalyst for Angelo venturing into the battlefield.
A group of abnormally small Durri quintuplets superficially resembling moles that Kren describes as his relatives. They typically aid him in his heists, and in combat, they're tasked with delivering his ammunition and explosives. As they are in the Land of Exiles with Kren, they are presumed to be exiles themselves, likely due to being accomplices in Kren's crimes.
An Iron-jaw found injured and close to death in the wilderness of the Scorched Expanse. Skreg initially planned to finish it off for supplies, but seeing in its defiant nature a reflection of himself, he instead opted to nurse the beast back to health. Though resistant to his care at first, the two of them have since become inseparable and fiercely protective of each other. When he was first introduced, after Skreg is defeated, Savagehorn would charge one last time to take revenge for his fallen master, though this gameplay aspect has since been removed for balancing reasons.
A nameless white deer and Lyca's battle mount, she appeared from the stars when Lyca was chosen for the Union Story: Dusk Watch, with the bow Starfall in her mouth. She and Lyca are visibly affectionate towards each other in their victory animation.
Horwich and Porter
Once in the same pirate crew as Torne stationed in Rustport, they deeply resented each other despite being allies. Ultimately, this resulted in their becoming Torne's left and right heads respectively after fighting over the cursed crown that would turn its wearer into whatever they hated most. Horwich was the most cunning of the three and enjoyed dancing, while Porter was the wisest of the three and was a talented musician.
A hellhound sealed in Leofric's cane, which is made from its bones. It has absolute loyalty towards him and acts as his familiar.
A horned owl who is Merlin's familiar and guardian, his chasing after a bat was the first thing that Merlin saw upon his arrival in Esperia. In battle, he defends Merlin by imprisoning enemies who place him under crowd control, and acts as a host for his spirit the first time that he takes lethal damage.
Though JOKER is capable of using more Personas, Arsène is the first one he gains and is the one most frequently associated with him, having already accompanied him to other dimensions previously. Its manifestation is based on Arsène Lupin, a devious trickster from classical novels by Maurice Leblanc.

Unknown Faction, Multiple Factions, or No Faction

A sentient force of darkness, possibly a legion of beings of incomprehensible nature, that hungers for souls. It is the most powerful thing currently known in the AFK Arena universe, able to effortlessly tear even the stars asunder, and is the only thing known to be capable of killing even a Graveborn permanently. Oden and Safiya (CN only) are both under its thrall and draw their power from it.
Appears in: Union Story: The Final Choice

By unknown means, he has somehow achieved immortality, and roams Esperia in disguise, telling Zaphrael's story which has been systematically erased from historical records. He is identifiable by his missing left eye.

Mentioned in: Union Story: The Lightbringers

The father of Reginald and grandfather of Rowan and Angelo, he was killed by bandits when Reginald was still young, being forced to wander the Realm of the Lost for several decades before Niru reunited him with his son.
Mentioned in: Walker's lore
A former member of the Lightbearer military along with Walker, he was killed by the Quicksand Claws, an act which Walker has sworn revenge for.
A chieftain of a minor Mauler tribe, he was excessively cruel even among other Mauler slave masters. When Khasos, at the time a shepherd under him, challenged him in a battle to the death rather than allow himself to be slowly tortured to death under his whip, his master made a game out of it and drank excessively before the fight to even the odds, which proved to be a fatal mistake when Khasos's superior reflexes triumphed.
Previous Grand Chieftain
The Bear Folksman who led Drez's former hunting troupe, he and the rest of them left him for dead after their mission to hunt a fire falcon ended with the deaths of multiple members of their group.
The Quicksand Claws

A divine carpenter under Dura's employ, his skill and craftsmanship is legendary. He created the clock tower that Orthros was once part of.
Appears in: Morael's lore
The younger sister of Morael and described as "a reckless romantic", the two of them often came at odds with each other, with Audrae's view of chaos being a natural part of existence clashing with Morael's view of a more orderly world. She is implied to have been killed by the Mortuary Void when it destroyed their then-current home in the Mirrah Nebula, though her exact fate is unknown.
Appears in: Talene's lore
One of the last two Obsidian Finches, she sacrificed herself for Talene when the two were attacked by Hypogeans. After her body was delivered to the Core's Cradle, her spirit, along with those of the rest of their race, aided in Talene's ascension to a Celestial.
Appears in: Mortas's lore
An unnamed Hypogean who attempted to corrupt Mortas, framing him for murdering the son of Prince Edwin and baiting him into wanting revenge. Unfortunately for it, its plan worked too well, and Mortas abused a loophole in their agreement, robbing it of its power.
