The game provides the players with a wide range of choices on religion, gender, race, skin color, class, kryptonite and more.

Everyone in the game addresses the player – New Kid. However, his real name – Dovahkiin – is revealed by Big Bad Government Guy.

By naming the main character Dovahkiin, the creators allude to another quite popular game developed by Bethesda – Skyrim.

One of the main abilities of the Coon – claws – makes him similar to Marvel Comics character – Wolverine. This attack applies terrible bleeding and leaves scratches. Also, the Coon wears a so-called ‘bandit mask’ which is one of the attributes of Wolverine in the comics series.

Cartman makes his voice sound like Batman’s. Some of the interactions allude to the old Warner Brothers cartoons featuring a little kitty and an enormous bulldog.

Mysterion – Kenny Mccormick

Clyde was bitten by a mosquito and became the superhuman named Mosquito. It is an obvious allusion to Spider-Man as he was also bitten by a radioactive insect.

However, Mosquito’s abilities are not similar to Spider-Man’s. He is in control of a horde of bugs just like another character from DC Comics –  Bug-Eyed Bandit.

Doctor Timothy – Timmy Burch
