Tycho Brahe
Voiced By Andrew Chaikin
Franchise Penny Arcade
Appears in Playstation All-Stars Fanfiction Royale
Rival DeathSpank
Tycho Brahe is one of the two main characters of the web comic Penny Arcade and the episodic video game series Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness and appears as a Playable Character in Playstation All-Stars Fanfiction Royale. His rival in the game is DeathSpank.



Half of the Penny Arcade duo, Tycho is the bitter and sarcastic foil to Gabe's whimsy and childishness. He is an avid tabletop RPG player, even snaring Gabe into his hobby. Oddly enough, Tycho has several unhealthy and weird fetishes from long necked animals to hedgehogs.
