Characters are story-related creatures who appear throughout the LittleBigPlanet games. These characters tend to be Creator Curators, or NPCs like The King, or Newton who guide you through a level or create obstacles for you within Story Mode.

The original characters created in LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet PSP and LittleBigPlanet Karting were flat 2D characters made with the Tools & Objects from Create Mode. This also allowed players to remake or make their own characters in a similar way. When LittleBigPlanet 2 came along, all the characters (except the Negativitron) in Story mode appeared as Sackbots much like Sackboy, enabling these characters' costumes to be unlocked and wearable by Sackboy or used as Sackbots again. This was continued in LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet 3 with addition of characters like Toggle having their own custom looks & animations. There are 31 total story characters in the LittleBigPlanet Series.

Playable Characters

The main character in the LittleBigPlanet series is "you", or in other words Sackboy.

The Sackperson is often referred to as a hero as he is mainly responsible for destruction of the main antagonists in the LittleBigPlanet games. The Sackperson is smaller than other characters, either because they are a child or at a young age, though it is more likely to be the case that that they are just small in stature. Not surprisingly, they have appeared in every game to date. In LittleBigPlanet 3, Sackboy meets some new friends to help him explore Bunkum: Oddsock, Toggle, and Swoop.

OddSock is the first new friend that Sackboy meets in LittleBigPlanet 3. Oddsock has four legs and can run a lot faster than the other characters, and wall jump. It's said that they hate flat surfaces. He is first encountered in Manglewood.

Toggle is the second friend you meet. He can change between being small & light, and big & heavy. He hates arguing with himself. He is first encountered in The Ziggurat

Swoop is the third and last playable character. He is a bird who can fly and pick up grabbable objects and characters. He is first encountered in Bunkum Lagoon.

The Narrator

The Narrator is the voice that guides the player in each LittleBigPlanet game. The English language narrator is usually Stephen Fry. However, in the Move Pack, he is replaced by Morwenna Banks. Stephen Fry only appears at the very beginning to tell you that he has to leave, because Susan got peanut butter stuck to her mouth. There is yet another different Narrator in the LittleBigPlanet 3 tutorials; the voice is unknown. A lot of LittleBigPlanet players did not like his voice, so it's likely he will not return in the future.


Susan is the Narrator's fussy cat. She is mentioned constantly, and also appears in the tutorial videos of LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet 3 and LittleBigPlanet Karting.


The player meets many characters in Story Mode. Most of which can be unlocked and placed in your own levels, and they can be unlocked from the level The Collector's Lair
