This is a list of characters who have minor appearances or references in Downfall.

Mr. Davis & Mrs. Davis Edit

Mr. Davis & Mrs. Davis are the unnamed parents of Joe Davis and Robbie Davis. Not much is known about them except for the fact that the Davis family originally lived in Seattle, Washington until Mr. Davis got a job offer in England, resulting in the Davis family moving into an apartment building on Helen Road in a small, rural English town.

After Robbie's death, Mrs. Davis was distraught by the news and committed suicide by slitting her wrist. Her body was later found on the couch by Joe and his father, the former of which "didn't even cry", according to his father. After her death, Mr. Davis, who originally was bitter towards Joe, treated him with outright contempt, blaming everything on him.

It's possible that the reason Joe never talks about his childhood after Robbie's death is due to Mr. Davis' contempt resulting in neglect and abuse towards Joe while he still lived with his father. Mr. Davis died years later, likely from old age, and after his death the apartment on Helen Road was inherited by Joe.

Mitzi Hunt Edit

Mitzi Hunt appears at the end of Downfall in the Normal Ending and the Golden Ending, having survived her cancer from The Cat Lady. Her appearance in both endings is mostly the same, with her coming to check up on Susan Ashworth after Susan has knocked out Joe Davis.

In the Downfall Ending, Mitzi appears to have succumbed to her cancer as she is never seen. However she does have a couple minor references with Susan using her laptop and a photo of her appearing on a 'trophy case' along with other trophies Susan has collected.

She is a major character in the previous game The Cat Lady.

Xavier Zellman Edit

Dr. Xavier Zellman, also known as Doctor X, is Dr. Frank Zellman's brother; as mentioned by Doctor Z if Joe asks him if he's really a doctor. He is also the brother of the young Dr. Yvonne Zellman, the youngest and only female sibling in the Zellman family, as confirmed by Remigiusz Michalski.[1]

While Doctor X doesn't make an appearance in Downfall, he appears in The Cat Lady as Susan's psychiatrist. This is referenced in the The Sixth Parasite Ending, where the hand-crafted baby mace Susan used to attack Doctor X in The Cat Lady is seen on Susan's trophy case.

It should also be noted that this confirms which weapon Susan canonically used, as in The Cat Lady the player can choose whether to use two weapons; the aforementioned hand-crafted baby mace or a spear.

Dinner Guests Edit

The Dinner Guests are a group of human corpses wearing animal masks, they appear in the dining room when Joe confronts the Manageress and disappear afterwards.

Brady the Ice Cream ManEdit

The man operating the ice cream truck in the intro of Downfall. Due to the perspective of the ice cream truck he is never seen and is only heard.

Voices Inside the Coffins Edit

A set of corpses in unknown states of decay, supposedly buried along with Joe in nearby coffins.
