I recall seeing an already existing thread about this subject, but who cares?

Domino, of course. I always fall in love with villains, even if they are truly mean. Byt as an obsessed fangirl I must say that I don't believe Domino was that bad. I've even made up a theory that proves that he wasn't evil (really!), but I haven't written it down yet, so I won't put here. At least not yet.

Eva. The accent. The beauty. The double life. The fact that she says "Knock yourself out". I fell in love with her. Definitely. Eva.

I can't say who my favorite is, 'cause I love each one...

Manny: He's Manny...
Meche: She's the woman in that game, and I think she would look nice with skin.
Glottis: He's my little teddy bear! :P
Lupe: The voice
Lola: Just the scene where she die. I nearly cried first time...
Domino: He's the bad boy...
Olivia: I love bad women...

Und so weiter...

Velasco! He's much talkative and helpful + he's says the poem together with Manny when examinating the skully moon.


Manny: Hah! "Bust-all", my ass!

Hey thanks I could never find a picture and now I know why - They spelled it "Teri" on IMDB!
She's pretty indeed, but I've grown so used to that image of the hat with feather... it's just not the same thing

Well, maybe if you give her ten grand or so she'll put on a costume for you.

Toto Santos was a definite favourite for me but Glottis is just so funny in so many places that he would have to be my favourite.

Hard to pick a favorite, it really is..

Just to throw my vote in, though, I'd have to go with Velasco. Key E. Kuter did an excellent job with that character. I still laugh everytime he groans when Manny falls into the water for the second time.

I agree. I enjoy his brand of sass.
Sometimes just looking at him makes me laugh (especially when he's scared)
Is Glottis a german name? I speak some German, but I never found out. ( Glottis, Er est sehr lustig, lout, und freundlich.)
My second favourite is Salvador, then Manny.

Apart from Manny..

I think Glottis is my favourite character simply because he adds humour to the game. I also like, err, what's his name...the guy who runs the mail system at the DoD and then you meet up with him again in the casino.

Favourite Character

I'm shocked that only one other person has said Membrillo- I love the whole depressed thing. The mortuary looks great too, what with all the flowers.

28. Doug and Doug, twins
27. The clown
26. Terry and the Union bees
25. Celso Flores, client
24. Hector Lemans, big boss
23. Pugsy and Bibi, angels
22. The roulette croupier
21. The Guardian of the Gates

20. Don Copal, boss
19. Domino Hurley, sweatiest man in the office
18. Lola and Lupe, can't tell 'em apart
17. Eva, secretary
16. Brennis, DOD tube switcher mechanic
15. The Mayan Mechanics
14. Mercedes "Meche" Colomar, saint
13. Bruno Martinez, angry little client
12. Olivia Ofrenda, femme fatale
11. Maximino, hep cat

10. Toto Santos, tattoist
09. Nick Virago, lawyer
08. Police Chief Bogen
07. Dockmaster Velasco, old salt

Yes and:

Max: He is mysterious
Raoule: He's a waiter
Don: Hes a real hard-ass
Hector: I LOVE fat people
Salvador: Hes funny
Velasco: A real seaman
Celso: Just as confused as Jarjar Binks


With bony hands I hold my partner, On soulless feet we cross the floor. The music stops,
as if to answer an empty knocking at the door. It seems his skin was sweet as mango when last I held him to my breast. But now, we dance this grim fandango and will four years before we rest!

Velasco. He's just so great and I laughed so much when I heard that the "special lady" he lost was the S.S. Lamancha. He's just so great. Bowlsley is up there too because he is halarious when he's freaking out but he still not as great as the dockmaster.

Manny is my favorite.

He is so mutch like me... besides the part that he's dead. But his attitude is like mine. it seems that I even sond like him (I use a lot of Italian words in my speach that look alot like spanish words) :P and I have the similar kind of humor. Take a look at my name -Acey Machiavelli- Its a name you could run in to in a game like grim Fandango.

I like Glottis, simply because he added much humor to the game and was a great loyal friend of Manny's.

I don't know why, but I always like the villains the most. I think it's because they're always the cool ones. Domino was my favorite. But, of course, like clockwork, the hero is always in 2nd place. Manny is my second place winner!
