NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


Heroes/Characters

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

Heroes has a storytelling method that involves taking a number of separate unrelated storylines and slowly bringing them all together as time goes by. This creates a huge cast of supporting characters that can be difficult to keep track of.

This page lists all powered characters appearing on the main show and in webisodes, in person or in dialog, as well as every relative of the main characters to have appeared in person, and every other character seen in at least three episodes. The characters are sorted into three categories and arranged by number of episode appearances. It should be noted that only actual visual appearances are included in the episode count, and that episodes where a character only appear in re-used footage is not included in the count.

The list is complete as of Brave New World, the 78th episode and series finale.
