Subway Surfers characters - say hi to the crew

From Jake and Tricky to aliens, robots, and crash test dummies - here are all of the Subway Surfer characters and skins currently in the game

Subway Surfers characters

In the epic, free-running phenomenon that is Subway Surfers, characters are what truly keep the soul (and the soles) of the spark alive, even after ten years. While the gameplay is extremely fun and addictive, it’s the massive, diverse cast of surfers that adds such a vibrant sense of life to the title, and keeps us coming back for more.

Of course, the list of Subway Surfers characters has expanded way beyond the original core crew of Jake and his gang, with new addictions from all over the world, and even outer space, filling out the roster. So, allow us to introduce you to the Subway Surfers crew, and all the unique characters and outfits you can collect in the game.

If you’re on a mission to become a top surfer, check out our Subway Surfers cheats and Subway Surfers codes. We’ve also got lists of the best casual games and the best mobile platformers if you’re on the hunt for more fun.

Here are the main members of the Subway Surfers crew.

Subway Surfers characters from the core crew


Described as the ‘leader and spirit’ of the Subway Surfers, Jake is confident, personable, and charming, but can sometimes be reckless. He’s a restless soul who’s always dreaming of the next cool thing to do.

  • Dark outfit
  • Star outfit


Tricky’s a great friend to everyone in the Subway Surfers crew, but isn’t the best at following orders. She’s the brainiest of the bunch and strives for perfection in everything she does, especially when it comes to breakdancing and her awesome skate tricks.


  • Core crew
  • Heart outfit
  • Camo outfit


A big fan of all things 80s-themed, Fresh is a highly intelligent and perceptive musician, though he does most of his talking through his boombox. He’s thoughtful and philosophical, but can be a bit cynical. Either way, he’s the glue that holds the gang together.


  • Core crew
  • Funk outfit
  • Sport outfit


A tech genius with a passion for science, Yutani is wildly imaginative and loves nothing more than coming up with contractions that have never been seen before. She believes she may not even be from earth – and the other surfers find this plausible.

  • Gadget outfit
