How does Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Character Creation work?

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Character Customization
Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Character Customization

In Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands you play as the Fatemaker, unlike the Borderlands games you will be able to create your own playable character. The character creator doesn’t just let you customize the look of your character there is more at play. You will be able to pick your character’s race, physical appearance, voice, personality, lore, and more. Character Customization only alters your hero’s appearance, it has no effect on their abilities. The Aesthetic and the Character Class are for the most part 2 separate things in the game, only your background story will impact the stats you start with.

Character’s Race

You get to choose what race your character is. There are non-humanoid options. You could play an Orc or an Elf but also have sharkfins on your head. It’s a fantasy game. There is even an option to change your pronoun.

Character’s Voice

You are able to select your voice. I assume there will be male & female voices and some will lean into certain character types.

There is a pitch slider that allows you to pitch shift the voice up and down.

Character’s Personality

There are 4 personality types in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. They are Gallant, Clever, Gruff, and Strange. Each personality type has 2 voice actors.

  • Gallant: A adventurer who’s always talking themselves up a little too much, and as you play you start to realize that maybe they’re still lacking on some heroic deeds.
  • Strange: Someone who is a little void-touched and has seen beyond the veil.

Voice Actors

You get to choose your own voice and some other fun stuff that we can’t quite dive into yet, but it goes into even your character’s personality, not just aesthetics, and it’s all independent.

Background Story

When creating your character, you will need to choose one of the five unconventional lore backgrounds. Your background story will define the strengths and weaknesses of your starting stats. The six basic stats are Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Wisdom, Constitution, and Attunement. Throughout the game, you can spend Hero Points on these stats and enhance your build.

Physical Appearance

Customizing the look of your character is also a very important thing and it looks like Gearbox has a lot of options for us to tinker with. If you don’t feel like crafting your appearance from scratch, there are presets or you can use the randomize function. Here are some of the features you can change:

  • Body Type
  • Height
  • Facial Features
  • Hairstyles
  • Skin Color
  • Makeup
  • Attire
  • More

There is the option to disable symmetry. This will allow you to make one eye or ear huge while the other one is tiny.

There are no options locked behind gender, no specific set of voices to commit to, you are free to make whoever and whatever you want.

Armor Themes + Armor Presets

Armor Themes are cosmetics that let you customize the look of your equipment in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. They can be applied to any piece of armor you’ve collected, letting you fine-tune the details of your character for that perfect look.

Armor Presets apply a combination of Armor Themes to create a set look for your character.

Face Presets + Makeup Packs

Face Presets and Makeup cosmetic options to give your character a distinct look.

Banner Set

As part of your hero customization, you also get to create your own cosmetic banner. It is displayed in the main hub and also shows up whenever you perform an emote. Your banner will also show up on the Overworld when you conquered a dungeon. Banner Sets give you additional ways to customize your personal banner.

Hero Statue Material

Statues of your hero can appear in Brighthoof, the main hub area. No, it’s not just one statue—they’re all over the place to celebrate you. When you are playing Co-Op, the statues of your friends will also be there.

Hero Statue Material cosmetics let you change its overall look.


  • Yes, you can change your appearance throughout the game using the quick change station.
  • Cat ears confirmed!
  • Slider Overdrive Mode lets you position elements in weird ways, like turning your eyes 90 degrees.


Aside from all the aesthetic customization options, you will also be able to tailor your character class by selecting your skills and spending your hero points. There is a lot of depth to these mechanics that I cover in a dedicated Character Classes article.
