Which characters belong to which character group?

You can find the updated list here: The Characters and Costumes Of The Simpsons Tapped Out

Last Updated: December 4th, 2014.(Partially)

The Stonecutters Event expanded the use of character groups. What’s a character group you might ask? It’s a collection of characters who share the same attributes. The current groups in the game are Regular Characters, Premium Characters, Women, Krustyland Goers, Brainiac, Entrepreneur, Celebrity, Civil Servant, Criminal, Glutton, High Roller, Dimwit, Youngster, Kook, Pessimist, Saint, and Senior.

Character groups were used heavily in the Stonecutters Event, and I expect we’ll see their use expand in the future. The Krustyland 2 update added the Krustyland Goers group, for example. But which characters are in which group? See below!

  • Regular Characters: Agnes, Apu, Artie Ziff, Barbarian, Barney, Bart, Bernice Hibbert, Brockman, Carl, Chalmers, Cletus, Cocoa Beanie, Comic Book Guy, Crazy Cat Lady, Database, Dolph, Dr. Hibbert, Drederick Tatum, Eddie, Fat Tony, Father Sean, Freddy Quimby, Giuseppe, Grampa, Herman, Homer, Hugs Bunny, Judge Snyder, Kirk, Krusty, Kumiko, Legs, Lenny, Lisa, Lou, Louie, Luigi, Marge, Martin, Milhouse, Mindy, Miss Hoover, Miss Springfield, Moe, Mr. Burns, Mrs. Krabappel, Ned, Nelson, Number 1, Patty, Princess Penelope, Quimby, Ralph, Rev. Lovejoy, Rod, Roger Myers Jr., Sanjay, Sea Captain, Selma, Shary Bobbins, Skinner, Smithers, Snake, Suzanne the Witch, Todd, Tom O’Flanagan, Wiggum, Willie, Wolfcastle

  • Civil Servant: Abraham Lincoln, Eddie, Judge Snyder, Lou, Patty, Quimby, Rex Banner, Selma, Teddy Quimby, Wiggum
  • Criminal: Fat Tony, Herman, Legs, Louie, Quimby, Snake
  • Glutton: Barney, Comic Book Guy, Homer, Quimby, Wiggum
  • High Roller: Bernice Hibbert, Brockman, Fat Tony, Hank Scorpio, Mr. Burns, Quimby, Roger Myers Jr., The Rich Texan, Wolfcastle
  • Dimwit: Barney, Chester Dupree, Cletus, Dr. Nick, Duffman, Grampa, Homer, Lenny, Otto, Ralph, Sea Captain, Wiggum, Wolfcastle
  • Youngster: Bart, Database, Dolph, Greta Wolfcastle, Jimbo, Kearney, Lisa, Martin, Milhouse, Nelson, Ralph, Rod, Shauna, Sherri & Terri, Squeaky Voice Teen, Todd, Uter
  • Kook: Apu, Brandine, Bumblebee Man, Chester Lampwick, Cletus, Crazy Cat Lady, Disco Stu, Hans Moleman, Herman, Hugs Bunny, Kang, Kodos, Krusty, Otto, Professor Frink, Ralph, Rod, Sea Captain, Shary Bobbins, Todd, Willie
  • Pessimist: Agnes, Arnie Pye, Chester Lampwick, Comic Book Guy, Dolph, Grampa, Hugs Bunny, Jasper, Moe, Mrs. Krabappel, Patty, Rev. Lovejoy, Roger Myers Jr., Selma, Willie
  • Saint: Father Sean, Maude, Ned, Rev. Lovejoy, Rod, Todd

  • Premium Female: Princess Kashmir, Jacqueline Bouvier,

There are a few oddities to the lists of Character Groups:

  • Sanjay, Cocoa Beanie, Smithers, Kirk, Number 1, Giuseppe, Princess Penelope, Barbarian, Database, and Artie Ziff are only in the character group Regular Characters.
  • Dewey Largo, Number 51, Blue Haired Lawyer, George Washington, and Akira are only in Premium Characters.
  • Sherri & Terri along with Lou and Eddie were given access to Krustyland in the Krustyland 2 update, but aren’t part of Krustyland Goers.

Character groups could be used in the future in other ways too. As long as they keep the character groups up to date, it’s easier to specify in the code the character group than list individual characters. For example, they could specify the Glutton group to eat at Krusty Burger rather than having to list each character.

  1. Great to see them using the character groups again, even if only in special events. I was hoping that they would be used for day to day & story line tasks aswell, that way we might have a chance to get more familiar with who is part of what group.
    No matter as we have this excellent post to refer to instead.
    As an addition to this would it be possible to compile a list of which buildings need to be stored to free each character up? Sometimes it’s not convenient to store whatever building they’re doing their task in as there may be other characters in there who you don’t want cancelled.
    If only EA could just add an “End task” option into the town census then this would be unnecessary.

    • I only wish they took more consideration to new players. If youre under level 15 you cannot complete some Tunnels in time (one Glutton x3 6h = 18h next Glutton on lvl 15/17 depending if you can afford SQP or not) and you cannot finish Jingle Bell Wreck, as it requires Moe’s at lvl 15.
      My C was started with Thanksgiving and Im two weeks (in quests required) and 150K away from Moe’s.

  2. Lampwick is a pessimist, and a senior (and probably a kook?). I’m not sure yet about the Itchy & Scratchy guy, but both those guys should be added to the lists.

            • Not here, no guestspot for that kid. The rant on Reddit was littered with racist slurs and homofobic insults, plus a language that is not suitible anywhere! including prisons… It was removed and the apology started fine but hours later it was back to ungrounded racial accusations: feel sad for the rich white kid, making money by illegal deals so he could buy his GF whatever (homofobic insult). (Racial/anti semetic comments) is why he had to do what he did etc.
              He has emitted and withdrawn the knowledge of the iligitimacy of his deals numerous time so who knows what is true or false. He might be a kid but that is no excuse for criminal activities or disrespect for others. He is old enough to face the consequenses of his actions even if it means jailtime.

Anyway, it’s all very well to decry him, but I can’t see any rant on reddit. It’s deleted. That might say it all, but I want to be the judge.

                • Yeah it was deleted fast because of the language. Fair enough, first hand info is always the best! on that we can agree 🙂
                  It’s been over for so long now but as a non-white person it still bugs me whenever ignorant opinions like that are displayed, once is annoying but when it is repeated I tend to write off that person completely and yes, it is shortsighted but I dont usually change my mind when that’s done. Then again, I never claimed to be a nice person 😀
                  Enough of this now. Im stopping the thread but it was nice talking to you.

  3. Does this list of groups only include groups that may be included in Tasks? Because there’s got to be other groups, like Drunks and Parents.

    Like

      • There were tasks with Drunks in Level 41.I assumed it was defined as a group but per mrfy’s comment it may have been defined individually. Same with Parents in Miss Hoover’s quest line.

    • The use of character groups is relatively new in the game. In the past they’ve manually listed each character when assigning them to tasks. I’ve listed all of the currently defined groups here.

  4. The shortest list of characters you should keep always available for the tasks is:
    – Brockman
    – Comic Book Guy
    – Maude
    – Quimby
    – Ralph
    These 5 cover all the groups.

    I’ve used only freemiums characters, for the sake of freemium players (like me, duh). But you can’t do better using premium characters too.

    Hope this helps!

    • My list are
      Comic Book Guy
      Quimby
      Wolf caste
      Rod/Todd
      Agnes

      Comic Book Guy and Quimby really are ‘great’ (4 categories each,overlapping at 1).
      2 character for 7 of 14 groups.

      the problem with this is, if you occidentally task them for something else, no back-up. 🙂

  5. Luigi isn’t a celebrity. I have a task to Send a Celebrity to Get Frisked, and it’s not on his list. Which sucks because in my secondary game Krusty is my only Celebrity, and he’s busy completing the third Sacred Parchment task. (I stopped progressing my secondary game at the first Quimby quest task, so I don’t have Brockman or Wolfcastle, and all the other Celebrities are Premium.)

    • you could cancel Krusty’s parchement quest by storing and unstoring the Krustyburger. You can always go back to the parchment quest after completing Number One’s task. You can go back to the Parchment quests but you only have so many hours in one day to complete Number One’s tasks.

  6. Number 1 has tasked me with “sending an entrepreneur to pick up a mysterious parcel” but even though all of the entrepreneurs in my town are currently free and waiting for something to do, I am not able to send them on this task. Any clues? Could it be a glitch?

    • Ah, good point. Yes, she earns premium, but in the code she’s still part of Regular Characters. I’ll update the post to point out the discrepancy. Thanks! 🙂

  7. Are number one’s tasks the same for everyone? Today I received tasks for two limited time buildings. One for the bad dream house and another for the super collider. While I have both, the super collider was only offered in Halloween 2012. (i think) Also has anyone gotten a task long than 4 hours? Thanks.

    • The tasks are randomized. You will get some for the limited time buildings, only if you have them. There are some longer ones coming, it looks like 6 hours is the maximum length for a task. I’m certainly hoping that as long as you start the task before the timer runs out you’ll still get credit.

  8. I’m so sorry, this is so so, unrelated, but i saw a different post and u said the night hawk diner would be available. I don’t see it. It might be a glitch, but I don’t know. Once again I’m sorry but I really want the night hawk diner
