- First - Matthew Patel - He is the first of Ramona's evil exes. He interrupts a concert that the Sexbob-ombs are playing. This surprises Scott even though Matthew has tried multiple times to tell Scott of the battle. Matthew dated Ramona about nine years ago but still hasn't gotten over the breakup. He summons demon girls in battle to fight Scott. Scott defeats him easily and like any good boss fight, he drops money.
- Second - Lucas Lee - He is the second of Ramona's evil exes. He is a movie star/skateboarder. When Scott finds him he asks him for his autograph, instead of actually trying to fight him. Lucas then throws Scott. They end up eating some baby carrots and talking. But instead of actually fighting him to defeat him, Lucas falls while skating down a thing of stairs. (He is played by Chris Evans in the movie)
- Third - Todd Ingram - Todd is Ramona's third evil ex. He is a vegan which gives him special powers. He is dating Envy Adams (Scott's last love) and is in the band Clash at Demonhead with Envy. He fights Scott at a concert but the fight is interrupted by the Vegan Police. Todd hasn't been 100% vegan and thus loses his powers. Scott then head butts him to defeat him. His weakness is his balls. (He is played by Brandon Routh in the film)
- Fourth - Roxanne Richter - She is Ramona's fourth evil ex. She used to be roommates with Ramona and is half ninja. She teaches Ramona most of her fighting moves. She is rather over weight and isn't too secure over it. When defeated she teaches Scott the power of love. Which is a good power. She also is still kind of in love with Ramona.
- Fifth & Sixth - Kyle and Ken Katayanagi - They are twins who Ramona dated at the same time, without them knowing. So they decided to team up to make sure Ramona doesn't hurt anyone again. They capture Kim Pine to force Scott after them. Scott shows up, drunk, morning the lost of Ramona (Ramona left him). But Kim gives him hope by faking a text message from Ramona saying that she loves him dearly. This gives Scott the motivation to take down the twins. After that he dreams that Ramona has forgiven him, but he is actually dreaming and she is still gone. No where to be found.
- Seventh - Gideon Graves - He is the final evil ex. He used to date Ramona back in NYC. He is first revealed at the end of Infinite Sadness and is the leader of the League of Evil Exes. He is a weird one, he keeps all of his ex girlfriends in a sleep chamber. Ramona though got away before the same could be done to her. Gideon has also been following around Scott and Ramona though out the books by using the "sub spaces" located around the city and in Ramona's bag. Scott must fight him to win Ramona's love. Gideon kills Scott and steals his power of love. But with the help of Ramona, he earns back his love and they take down Gideon together. (He is played by Jason Schwartzman in the movie).
- Stephen Stills - Stephen is the lead singer of the Sex Bob-ombs. After the move into Julia's house, who is his girlfriend, Stephen doesn't really do much with Scott, Kim or Neil anymore. He spends most of his time recording the Sexbob-ombs album, which is only 17mins long when completed. In Finest Hour it is revealed that Stephen is gay.
- Kim Pine - Kim used to date Scott until he left. The Katayanagi bros reveal that she might still love Scott but when Scott kisses her she can't bring herself to "enjoy it" stating that he hurt her too much. She is the drummer for the Sex Bob-ombs.
- Wallace Wells - Scott's gay roommate. He helps Scott during his battles by giving him advise and scouting the other exes. And since he can actually hold down a job, he pays for everything until they fall behind on rent. Scott moves out and moves in with Ramona. Wallace lives with his boyfriend who Scott mistakes for Gideon.
- Knives Chau - The friendship between Scott and Knives is a odd one. They dated until Scott meets Ramona, he ends up ditching Knives for Ramona. She then becomes obsessed with Envy Adams and Clash at Demonhead. In the motion picture, Ellen Wong and Michael Cera have better chemistry together than Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, confusing many viewers into believing that Knives, not Ramona, is the girl that Scott is destined to be with.
A movie is set to come out August 13th. It is directed by Edgar Wright of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead fame. It stars Michael Cera as Scott and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona. The rest of the cast:
Video Game References
The Scott Pilgrim books are full of video game references. Throughout the game Scott is seen playing video games on his couch. Every fight is a reference to a boss fight in a video game. Each one of them drops money, much like when you defeat a enemy in video games. Some will give Scott new powers or power ups. A couple of 1UPs are also shown in the series. One example is when Scott defeats Roxanne she bursts in to animals, a reference to Sonic.
It also has it's own video game
coming out three days before the release of the movie on PSN and a week later on XBLA. It's developed by Ubisoft Montreal
you can play as Stephen Stills, Ramona Flowers, Kim Pine and Scott himself. It's an old school brawler.
- His name was inspired by the song "Scott Pilgrim" by Plumtree.
