As we said before, the reason why we privately call these Sims games "the Giuseppi games" is because Giuseppi appears in all of them. There are only two other characters who share this honor: Dusty Hogg and Misty Waters. But what about the others? Out of our own curiosity, we made a table of appearances of all the characters in this miniseries that have at any point been conversable. Fields noted as "Cameo" mean that the character appears in the game in some form but is not conversable. Such would be for example the case of Bucki Brock in The Urbz, who appears as a vendor in the carnival, or Olde Salty in The Sims 2 (GBA), who appears as a statue and as a card illustration in the minigame Keelhauled. We didn't count mentions as cameos.
Beyond Giuseppi, Dusty, and Misty, the second most appearances are held by Daddy Bigbucks (4), Luthor L. Bigbucks (4), and Olde Salty (3 plus 2 cameos).

Just for completeness, let us also mention the secret character Heidi Shadows. She is a ninja shopkeeper of "cheat" items that only appears in certain places at certain in-game times on certain in-game days in Bustin' Out and The Urbz. She is not conversable though, and we only put characters in this table that have dialogue in at least one game.
Another non-conversable character of note is Johnny Smith. He is an unnamed shopkeeper in The Sims 2 on GBA and on DS, but he first appeared as a pre-made Sim in The Sims 2 on PC, in the neighborhood of Strangetown, which is not the same Strangetown as in The Sims 2 on GBA or the Strangetown in The Sims 2 on DS. Or maybe Strangetown is that strange and is simultaneously all three of them at the same time.
A few of these characters also appeared in other Sims games. Tank Grunt also had his start as a pre-made Sim in The Sims 2 for PC. Lincoln Broadsheet and Mambo Loa would also appear in The Sims 2 on PSP which is yet another game with the same name but a completely different continuity.
- Some people think he is the same character as The Professor from The Urbz. We don't think so. In any case, The Professor cannot be conversed with, so in the case in which he is indeed meant to be Daschell, the appearance type can be upgraded to Cameo.
- Name spelled as "Maximillian" (two Ls) in The Urbz.
- Name sometimes spelled as "Momma".
