Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living… with his friend Wallace in an apartment in Ontario. Wallace assumes almost all responsibility for maintaining the apartment, and owns almost everything of any value within it. He even bought Scott’s toothbrush.

Profession… unemployed, although Scott elevates wasting time to an art-form. He manages to pass the time by playing video games, practicing the bass, playing video games at the arcade, band practice, playing video games.

Interests… music. Scott Pilgrim spends much of his time practicing bass guitar and playing small gigs with his band “Sex Bob-Omb.” He’s also an unabashed fan of video games, anime, and pretty much any other form of nerdy media. Fortunately, Scott lives in a world where reality often resembles a video game, making his extensive knowledge of video games especially useful.

Relationship status… complicated. Scott Pilgrim is currently dating the 17-year-old high schooler, Knives Chau, but he finds himself dreaming about Ramona Flowers, a beautiful American delivery girl who has just moved to Ontario. Unfortunately, the fact that Scott’s already in a relationship is only one obstacle in the long path to Ramona – if he hopes to live happily ever after with her, he’ll have to defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends.

Challenge… to prove himself worthy of the love and affection of Ramona Flowers by defeating her “League of Evil Exes.” Ramona’s former lovers are insulted by the idea of her dating again, and have joined together with the express purpose of preventing her from ever forming a happy, healthy relationship. Scott will have to face them one-by-one and defeat them in video-game-inspired combat if he wants to keep dating Ramona.

Personality… lazy, sweet and awkward. Scott’s a born slacker and tries to avoid taking responsibility for anything. Despite his lack of real accomplishments, Scott sees himself as an extremely important person and a “paragon of virtue,” secretly viewing the world as a video game with himself as protagonist. Despite his long list of faults, Scott is protective of his friends, and is a genuinely nice guy. He’s spent his whole life waiting for a reason to care, and in Ramona Flowers he might have finally found a reason to get up off the couch and do something with his life.
