Humans Edit



Joey and Jude's beloved pet dog. She is seen hiding in her dog house during the events of Hiveswap: Act 1.

The Lone GunbirdsEdit

Main article: The Lone Gunbirds

Jude's carrier pigeons which he uses to send encrypted messages. This is a reference to The X-Files' Lone Gunmen. Their names are Frohike, Langly, and Byers, in reference to the last names of the Lone Gunmen. They also seem to represent the fate of Jude's different family members. Frohike, his favorite, suffered an early death and represents his mother. Langly cowardly runs away and abandons him, like his father. Byers goes to Alternia along with Joey.


Main article: Monster (Hiveswap)

They are black with neon green mouths. They come in all different forms such as serpent-like creatures, winged monstrosities, limb amalgamates, and giant thumb-like beings.


Trolls Edit

At least 37 trolls will appear in Hiveswap: Act 2, as revealed through What Pumpkin's 11/11 post. They were released weekly on their "Troll Call".

Xultan MatzosEdit

Xultan Matzos was a very popular Arena Stickball player. He was a rustblood Pusher that played for the Thrashthrust Snowglobes. According to Xefros, he revolutionized the Pusher position. He had a unique stance when swinging his cuebat, which Xefros tries to model his own stance after. Xultan also had extremely potent psychic powers, which further aided him in the game. Cohen confirmed in a reblog on tumblr that, like Stelsa, he is also troll jewish.

He was executed on the spot after a blueblood mind-controlled him and made him thrust at the heiress. This seems to be the fate of most lowbloods that make a name for themselves.

Dromed BaktarEdit

Dromed Baktar was another popular Pusher. Significantly less is known about him than Xultan, but it is known that he knew to play Pusher very well and was also a capable psychic, though not as much as Xultan. While thinking about playing Pusher, Xefros consistently compares the attitudes of Dromed and Xultan.

Xefros has a poster of Dromed in his respiteblock.

Troll Call TrollsEdit

Main article: Troll Call

In the build-up to the release of Hiveswap: Act 2 in Spring 2018, two new Hiveswap trolls were announced every Wednesday up until March 14th, 2018, there were twenty six released this way. This is known as the Troll Call. Details of the Troll Call trolls can be found on their own respective page.

Lusii Edit

Xefros's Lusus Edit

Xefros' lusus

Xefros's Lusus

A sloth-like lusus who is generally slow and tends to sleep in inconvenient places. Only moves when Xefros feeds him. The scientific name for this lusus is the GLACIAL TREETRUDGER, and his nickname, if not given a custom one by the player, is ZOOSMELL. However, his internal name is slugmeister.

Dammek's Lusus Edit

Cuspidated Grimalkin

Dammek's Lusus

A deercat lusus who initially chases Joey around Dammek's hive until she feeds him Lusus Milk and pulls a thorn from his paw. The scientific name for this lusus is the CUSPIDATED GRIMALKIN. Joey nicknames him CORNIBUSTER if the player doesn't choose a different one. His internal name is toothy.

Imperial DroneEdit

Concept Art characters Edit

All trolls below (aside from the main characters) were overriden or replaced by other designs in the shift to 2D development and do not canonically exist in the game, except for the Canon fan trolls whose destiny is yet uncertain.

One of the former Hiveswap musicians has confirmed the beekeper troll's replacement for Zebede was due to explicit images of the troll done by its creator during development of the game, being "just simpler to redesign the character than deal with literally any of that".

Trivia Edit
