This page catalogs the number of appearances each named character makes in the strip. This page was adapted by a similar page on the ErfWorld forums at Giant in the Playground. An appearance is any visual or audial appearance by a character, such as Charlie's off-screen instructions to his Archons, or when Jillian appears in pixellated form in Stanley's war room. Because the Arkenhammer was listed as a character in the original cast of characters page at Giant in the Playground, the Arkentools are included as named characters. Characters with a number in boldface after their name represent bonus appearances, either in news items, the mock-site at Hamstard.com, or in bonus pages in the books.
