Scott Pilgrim is the hero and main protagonist in the Scott Pilgrim series.
Scott Pilgrim is named after the song "Scott Pilgrim" by Plumtree, one of creator Bryan Lee O'Malley's favorite songs. Scott's hobby is playing video games, strongly influenced by Mr. O'Malley. He lives in Toronto, in the Canadian province of Ontario and is the bassist for the indie rock band Sex Bob-Omb. In the books, Scott Pilgrim plays a Rickenbacker 4001c64. O'Malley chose this bass as it was the dream guitar that he could not afford.
Not much is known about Scott's life until the age of sixteen, when his family moved to Northern Ontario. On his first day at St. Joel's Catholic High School, Scott got into a fight with three older boys, Scott lost the fight and was brought to the principal's office. Whilst waiting outside, Scott met Lisa Miller, and over the next couple of days, Lisa constantly bothered Scott, and eventually became his friend.
Whilst at St. Joel's, Scott met Kim Pine, who was signed up as his partner for a presentation in history class, and the two became friends, to which Kim seemed less than pleased due to believing that Scott would slack off and make her do all the work. Lisa planned to form a band with Scott in order to "transcend [their] class status" and become cool, however, Scott pointed out that there was only two of them and that the duo was lacking a drummer, later at a school band concert, Scott noticed that Kim was playing the drums for the band, prompting them both to consider asking her to join their band.
On a Monday, Scott arrived at school to find various students unconscious on the floor, Lisa arrives, revealing to Scott that a bunch boys from Benvie Tech High School, known as the Benvie Tech Boys, came, kidnapped Kim, and beat everyone up. Scott then rushes to Benvie Tech in order to save Kim, and his history presentation. Scott battled through Benvie Tech, effortlessly defeating the Benvie Tech Boys and finally reached their leader on the rooftop, Simon Lee, who had chained up Kim, keeping her prisoner. Scott fought Simon, and eventually defeated him, kicking him off the edge of the roof. Scott then unchained Kim, asked her if she wants to go out with him, and if she wanted to join his band, Kim agreed to both, and the two shared a kiss. This event was later revealed to be a false memory implanted by Gideon Graves, and in reality, Simon was nerdy kid who briefly dated Kim before Scott punched him in the face out of a fit of jealousy.
In the following weeks, Scott enjoyed his time in high school, performing at St. Joel's Lunchapalooza with band, named Sonic & Knuckles, and spending time with Kim, however, this came to a sudden end when Scott's family moved to Toronto, leaving Kim behind. It is eventually revealed that Scott didn't tell Kim about this, and he in fact told Lisa Miller, causing a rift between the two.
At some point Scott attended the University of Toronto and befriended Stephen Stills and Wallace Wells (the latter of which befriended Scott in the similar manner to how Lisa did).Whilst there, Stephen dated Julie Powers and Scott was introduced to her nerdy roommate, Natalie Adams. Despite Julie's attempts to keep Scott from dating her, the two formed a relationship. During the relationship, Scott, Natalie, and Stephen Stills formed a band called Kid Chameleon, and Natalie began to change, she sold of all her toys and anime stuff and bought CDs and boots and asked Scott to start calling her Envy. As the relationship progressed, Envy became increasingly distant to Scott. As Kid Chameleon progressed, Envy began to take control, bringing Cole in as a drummer to replace Scott, moving Scott to bass, and moving the current bassist, Steph Nordegraf, to bongos and viola. Natalie then added another, unnamed guitarist to the band, increasing the band's members to six. Scott and Envy's relationship eventually reached breaking point and on New Year’s Eve, the two had a big argument which resulted in them breaking up. Scott and Stephen Stills left Kid Chameleon and Envy eventually formed her own band. Scott took the breakup badly, causing him to become severely distraught over the slightest mention of Envy's name.
Precious Little LifeEdit
During the next two years, Scott finished his course at university, (although he is completely unaware if he graduated or not, due to his depression after the break-up) and formed the band, Sex Bob-omb, with Stephen Stills and Kim, who had moved to Toronto, whilst he rented an apartment with Wallace.
Some considerable time later, Scott met Knives Chau, a seventeen year-old high schooler, whilst on a bus with her mother, and the two started dating, the primarily reason being that Scott found the relationship easy and simple as all he did was ride the bus with her and talk about school. Despite Scott's attitude and questionable dating, Scott had an increasing sense of loneliness.
Whilst dating Knives, Scott had a usual dream about a mysterious girl he'd never met before, causing him to become distracted when on dates with Knives, Scott then saw the girl at a library, further distracting him. Later on, Scott and his friends went to a party at Julie's and Scott saw the girl again, removing any doubt that she wasn't real, Scott then tried, rather unsuccessfully, to chat her up. Failing, Scott promised to leave her alone forever, and then secretly stalked her until she left the party, afterwards, Scott asked various party members about her to try and find some information about her, he discovers that her name is Ramona Flowers, and that she is a delivery girl for the online retailer, Amazon. The next day, Scott orders some CDs from Amazon.ca in order to get another chance at meeting Ramona, unaware of the fact that it was a Saturday and that the CDs wouldn't ship until Monday and completely forgetting about his pseudo relationship with Knives. Whilst on the computer, Scott received an unusual E-mail about an upcoming fight, Scott however, dismisses the message and deletes it on the grounds of being boring.
On the Monday, Ramona arrived with Scott's package and Scott asked her out. Ramona revealed that the reason why Scott had a dream about her was because she was using the Subspace Highway running through his head as a shortcut for her deliveries. Ramona then agreed to go out with Scott as compensation for using his mind as a shortcut and ultimately making him become obsessed. Whilst on the date, Ramona talked about her past and mentions a guy named Gideon, when Scott asked about him, Ramona quickly changed the subject.Eventually, the two were hit by a sudden snowstorm, forcing them to go back to Ramona's Apartment. Whilst there, Scott stumbles upon Ramona, who had gone upstairs to change out of her wet clothes and the two embrace a kiss.The two then moved to the bed; however, Ramona stopped before the two had sex, but allowed Scott to spend the night. In the morning, Scott invited Ramona to his band's gig at The Rockit, alongside another band, Crash and the Boys, forgetting that he'd also invited Knives to the gig.
Seven Evil what?Edit
At the concert, Knives Chau arrived and gave Scott a highly affectionate kiss, her appearance was closely followed by Ramona's. Realising his own stupidity, Scott quickly ran off, feigning the need to pee, and then hid backstage. After Crash and the Boys finished their set, Sex Bob-omb started their gig, which was quickly interrupted when a mysterious man burst through the club's ceiling challenging Scott to a fight, Scott easily countered the attack, sending him flying. When asked by Scott who he was, the man, Matthew Patel, revealed that he was Ramona's first Evil Ex boyfriend. After a short bout, Ramona revealed the history between her and Matthew and afterwards, he summoned a group of Demon Hipster Chicks and attempted to defeat Scott in a rap battle-esque fight, Scott easily countered, with help from his friends and quickly defeated Matthew Patel, receiving a small reward of $2.40, which wasn't even enough for the subway back home. Ramona agreed to give Scott the remaining money, and quickly left with Scott.
Whilst on the train back home, Ramona revealed that she has Seven Evil Exes and that Scott must defeat each Ex in order to date her, to which Scott casually agrees, Scott then asked if Gideon was one of the Evil Exes, causing Ramona to become angered and making her head Glow.
Over the following days, Scott discovered that Ramona's next Evil Ex is Lucas Lee, a famous movie star and former actor. Whilst dating Ramona, Scott was encouraged by Wallace to break-up with Knives, to which Scott grudgingly agreed. Scott broke up with Knives shortly after she awkwardly confessed her love for him, leaving Knives heart-broken, although Scott was initially saddened and guilted by breaking-up with Knives, he quickly got over it when he started thinking about Ramona.
As Scott and Ramona's relationship continued, Ramona revealed a little more about her past life including her relationship with Lucas. Later on in the week, Scott travelled to Casa Loma with Wallace to confront Lucas Lee, who was filming his latest movie there. Upon meeting Lucas, Scott became star struck and asked Lucas for his autograph as opposed to fighting him, leaving Scott vulnerable and allowing Lucas to punch Scott to the ground and then throw him into the side of the castle, causing Scott to pass out. When Scott woke up, Lucas offered him a break and the two talked about his relationship with Ramona, causing Lucas to cry, Lucas then offered Scott the opportunity to throw the fight as long as Scott gave Lucas all his money, Scott instead called Lucas a sell-out, angering him. Scott quickly got out of the situation by goading Lucas into performing a grind trick on a nearby grind rail, Lucas accepted, but near the end of the trick, Lucas accumulated too much speed, and burst into flames, making Scott victor by default. After "defeating" Lucas Scott received roughly fourteen dollars and a Mithril Skateboard, which Scott was unable to use as he lacks skateboard proficiency.
Sometime after, Scott received a call from his ex-girlfriend, Envy, inviting Sex Bob-omb to open a gig for her band, The Clash at Demonhead, at Lee's Palace, the call stirs old feelings inside Scott, the aftermath of which leaves Scott in a temporal, comatose-like state.
Later on, Scott unwillingly went to Lee's Palace with Ramona and the rest of his friends to see The Clash at Demonhead perform. When the band started their gig, Ramona revealed that Todd, the band's bassist and current boyfriend of Envy, is in fact her third Evil Ex-boyfriend, Todd Ingram.
After the performance, Scott and his friends were invited backstage by Envy Adams, during an awkward gathering, Scott, angered by Todd's arrogance and cockiness, attacked Todd, Todd avoided this attack and his hair began to stand on end and his eyes began the glow. Todd then managed to telekinetically throw Scott through a wall of Lee's Palace. After this, Envy revealed that Todd is a Vegan, which grants him psychic powers. After a small bout, Envy arranges to conclude the battle the next day at Honest Ed's.
The next day, Scott, Todd, Envy, and others met up at Honest Ed's, Envy then revealed the rules of the battle, which is to race through Honest Ed’s, emerge on the other end, and defeat each other, the race started, and the two went inside Honest Ed's. Whilst there, Scott and Todd suffered from sensory overload due to the masses of items available, the full effects of which were partial blindness, hallucinations, and mental instability. Eventually, Todd lost control of his mental powers, and caused Honest Ed's to implode, stopping the battle at the tie.
Eventually, the night of Sex Bob-om's performance arrived, and the band got on stage to perform. In an attempt to gain popularity, all three members dressed in black and promised to make the audience "think about death and get sad and stuff." However, before the band could play, Scott leapt off of the stage to intervene in a fight between Ramona and Envy that started whilst the band was preparing. After this, it was revealed to Envy that Todd had been cheating on her with the Clash at Demonhead's drummer Lynette. Outraged, Envy attacked Lynette and Todd, the latter of which retorted by offensively using his vegan powers on Envy, claiming immunity to moral boundaries due to his rock star status.
After this, Scott attacked Todd, making Scott's battle with Ramona's third Evil Ex underway. The battled started as a Bass Battle, however Scott was quickly outmatched by Todd's superior Bass-playing prowess and was knocked back by a zap from Todd's psychic powers. After being knocked back, Scott was assisted by Crash and the Boys who had had a hostile takeover and were now under the name of The Boys!! And Crash! They revealed to Scott that they had learnt to manipulate sound waves through sheer willpower alone, they then planned to use Todd's own sound waves to propel Scott toward Todd for direct attack, however, the band found Todd's bass power was too powerful for them to handle and all four of them were knocked back. Just when Scott's chances of success seemed minor, two characters showed up, calling themselves the Vegan Police, the Vegan Police arrived to arrest Todd for Veganity violation due to him eating Gelato (which contains milk and eggs) that afternoon. The two then used a Deveganizing Ray ray to strip Todd of his psychic powers, rendering him completely vulnerable. Scott then effortlessly defeated Todd with a powerful head-butt attack, shattering Todd into coins.
The next day, Scott talked to Envy as she left home after the ordeal involving Todd. Although Scott hoped to gain some kind of closure to their relationship, all he got was an awkward goodbye as Envy departed for the airport. Despite being let down by this, Scott is reassured by Ramona, who announced that Scott only had four more exes to defeat in order to be Ramona's official boyfriend.
Getting it TogetherEdit
Two months later, Scott and his friends travelled to the beach to stay at Julie's auntie's beach house. During their time at the house, Scott came across Kim and Knives, who were drunkenly making out after talking about their failed relationships. Freaked out, yet amused Scott decided to keep the secret to himself and announced to the rest of the group that they must have gone home.
Back in Toronto, Scott and Stephen helped Kim move into a new apartment with her friend Hollie, whilst there, Stephen noticed Hollie's roommate, Joseph, who had a recording studio in his room, prompting him to want to record an album for Sex Bob-omb. As Scott and Ramona's relationship continued to grow, Scott began to ask more about Ramona's personal life, such as her age. However, Ramona remained lucrative and refused to tell Scott how old she was.
The next day, Scott was ordered out of his apartment by Wallace due to a heat wave and lack of proper ventilation in their apartment, Scott agreed, and went to the mall. Whilst there, Scott was recognized by a female, who quickly came up to Scott and embraced him. Upon realizing that Scott didn't recognize her, the girl revealed to Scott that she was Lisa Miller, a friend of Scott's when he attended St. Joel's Catholic High School. The two then talked about their lives since their departure and Scott mentioned that he still knows Kim and that she make out with a girl. When Lisa left, she gave Scott her phone number so he could contact her whilst she's in Toronto. The next day, Scott took Lisa to band practice so she could see Kim, however, upon arrival at Stephen's house, they found no-one apart from Young Neil, who didn't seem to know where anyone was. The two then travelled to Hollie's Apartment and found Stephen there in Joseph's room who revealed that everyone else was at Sneaky Dee's. At Sneaky Dee's Lisa met up with Kim and the two caught up with their recent activities. Later that night, Ramona arrived at Sneaky Dee's. Whilst there, Ramona talked with Lisa, causing Scott to grow nervous due to unresolved sexual tension between the two.
In the following morning, Scott has a Zelda-esquire dream when Ramona bumped into him. Scott, when Scott complained about Ramona's constant dream invasion, Ramona suggested that Scott should get a job so he wouldn't oversleep and thus Ramona wouldn't invade his dreams whilst working. Scott then spent the day asking his various friends whether there were any available job at their workplaces. When Scott arrived at No-Account Video to ask Kim, Kim took Scott to The Happy Avocado, Stephen's workplace, as there was dishwashing job available there. Despite being reluctant to take the job offer, Scott eventually agreed to take the job. On the way back, Scott and Kim are attacked by a a guy with a samurai sword who cut straight through a passing streetcar to reach them. Scott, terrified by the man's presence, opened a door to the subspace highway, allowing the two to escape. Confused by the encounter, Kim left Scott, claiming she had to go.
In the following days, Sex Bob-omb continued to record their album and spend their nights at Sneaky Dee's with the rest of their friends, practicing less and less to the dismay of Young Neil, who began to felt that his friends were abandoning him. On their way back home from these nights, Ramona began to casually ask Scott about Lisa and if he had any romantic feelings for her, to which Scott denied. The next morning Scott and Wallace travelled to the office of their Landlord, Peter who wished to have a meeting with them. Whilst there, Peter, revealed that the lease for their apartment was up, and that they would have to leave or pay month to month to continue living there. The two, dumbfounded by their current predicament, left each other and Scott went to face his first day of work at the Happy Avocado. After his day at work, a tired Scott started to make his way back home when he got attacked by a mysterious black blur. Scott managed to attack the blur, revealing that it was in fact a female ninja, and that Scott had succeeded in punching her in the boob, after leaving Scott with a cryptic message, the mysterious ninja woman left, leaving Scott confused. The same night, the group performed the usual routine of recording at Hollie's apartment and eating at Sneaky Dee's. With Ramona absent, Lisa asked Scott to walk her home and whilst doing so, Lisa made a drunken pass at Scott, which he turned down. Back at his apartment Scott talked to Wallace about their situation regarding the apartment, Wallace suggests that Scott move in with Ramona, to which Scott is uncertain of.
The next day, Scott walked up the Happy Avocado with Stephen Stills when he noticed the mysterious man who had attacked him a couple of days ago, Scott hid whilst the name walked pass, confusing Stephen. Whilst at the Happy Avocado, Stephen mentioned that he may have seen him before, but interrupted by Scott when he sees the ninja girl who had also attacked him. Scott then asked Stephen who the girl was talking, and Stephen discovers it's his girlfriend, Ramona. Confused, Scott went to confront the two, and after talking to the two, it eventually dawns on Scott that Ramona had a "sexy phase" in collage and that the girl was Ramona fourth evil ex, Roxie Richter. Roxie prepared to attack Scott, however, Scott was reluctant as she had a sword. Ramona then agreed to help Scott and allowed him to hide in her mysterious Subspace Suitcase in exchange for a weapon. Ramona then travelled to Subspace, where she battled Roxie, still with Scott in her suitcase. Although Ramona initially appeared to have the upper hand, Roxie quickly outclassed her with superior speed and knocked her to the ground, leaving her with some hurtful words.
After the fight, Scott started talking to Ramona about the situation regarding his apartment and Ramona, rather reluctantly, agrees to let Scott move in with her. As Lisa began to spend more time around Scott and the gang, Ramona began to grow suspicious of her feelings for. Ramona eventually confronted Scott about this and after an argument which resulted in Ramona leaving Scott to go back to her place alone. Scott then went back to his apartment, where he was greeted by Wallace and some guy having sex. Wallace then proceeded to tell a mentally scarred Scott that he was fired from his job and that he couldn't stay the night. Scott then walked around the neighbourhood, unsure where until he rummaged through his pockets and realised he had Lisa's number, which he had received earlier. With no other option, Scott called Lisa so he could spend the night.
Whilst at Lisa's sister's apartment, Lisa confessed that she still had feelings for Scott at that she had been intentionally dressing provocatively for Scott. The two then talked about high school and how they never expressed their feelings for each other and Lisa throws herself at Scott, suggesting they should have a relationship. Scott then blacked out, and after having a dream representing his torment which was invaded by Roxie, he awoke with no recollection of what happened. Lisa revealed that Scott confessed his love of Ramona to Lisa, after Scott heard this, he realised how important the relationship was to him and Scott immediately set off to reconcile to Ramona. However, before doing so, Scott went back to the Happy Avocado to get his job back, which he succeeds in doing, despite wearing the same shirt he wore yesterday.
After completing his shift, Scott went to Second Cup to get a free coffee from his sister only to find Knives Chau working there. As Scott was about to leave, he noticed the man who attacked him earlier, who Knives casually reveals is her dad. Knives then explains to Scott that her dad's brain must have cracked open to be replaced by "a purely mechanical engine of revenge" after he discovered that Knives dated as white guy. Knives dad then spotted Scott, and gave chase. Scott attempted to lose Mr. Chau through Subspace; however, upon landing in Subspace, Scott found himself him Ramona's head, where she was being held as a slave for a mysterious figure in glasses. When Ramona noticed Scott, she freaked out, and forcibly removed him from Subspace, while Ramona was initially angry about this, she calmed down after she realised it wasn't his fault and told him to forget what she saw. Scott then admitted that he spent the night at Lisa's, making Ramona believe Scott was in love with, however, before Scott had time to deny this, it was revealed that Roxie spent the night at Ramona's. Seeing this disorientated Scott and cause his head to Glow just as Ramona's had previously, Scott then wandered off and came across a Shadowy Doppelganger of himself. Scott, repulsed by the figure, charged straight through it and went back to Ramona's apartment.
There, Scott came across Mr. Chau, who had followed Scott through Subspace. Scott then ran through Ramona's apartment, not wanting to fight Mr. Chau because he owned a sword. Scott made his way to the bathroom, and in pursuit of Scott, Mr. Chau bumped into Roxie who, believing Mr. Chau to be an assassin sent by Gideon to complete Roxie's mission, attacked him. Whilst fighting Mr. Chau, Roxie came to the conclusion that Scott is just a pussy who can't fight his own battles. After hearing this, Scott mans up to tell Ramona he loves her. Doing so gave Scott over 9,999 experience points, causing Scott to level up and earned the Power of Love. Now owning a sword, Scott confronted Roxie and defeated her in a mid-air clash, slicing Roxie in two and causing her to burst into a group of furry woodland critters. After this, Scott apologise to Mr. Chau for dating his daughter. Mr. Chau accepted, signified by a bow, showing that Scott had earned his respect. Sometime later, Scott moved into Ramona's apartment and the two enjoyed the rest of summer, saying goodbye to Lisa, Ramona also reveals to Scott that she is 24, and that her birthday is January the first.
Vs. The UniverseEdit
As months passed, Scott's relationship with Ramona started to turn rather routinary.

Scott is a highly capable fighter, using various moves and techniques derived from various games, most noticeably from the Street Fighter series. Scott's fighting prowess is said to be incredible; according to Kim Pine, it's earned him the title "the best fighter in the Province". He can employ incredible moves such as the Shoryuken and the Air Juggle. Scott has also shown the ability to level up, doing so increases his stats, and grants him a sword to use in combat, Scott is as skilful with swords as he is at hand-to-hand combat, due to him taking a longsword proficiency in grade 5.
Scott appears to have some amount of superhuman strengh and durability, as he was able to destroy three robots without too much hassel and was able to survive powerful onslaughts from the Evil Exes, including being thrown into the side of Casa Loma by Lucas Lee, and being thrown high into the atmosphere by Todd Ingram.
Scott's Evil ExesEdit
Despite the main premise of the series being Scott's quest to defeat Ramona Flowers' seven evil exes and balancing it with his own day-to-day life, Scott has racked up his own "Evil Exes".
The first is Knives Chau, the 17-year-old Chinese school girl whom he dumped for Ramona. Despite her occasional interference to help Scott, since all she wants is for him to be happy, Knives has attacked Ramona twice and Knives' father has gone after Scott as well.
The other is Envy Adams, lead vocals for The Clash at Demonhead, former band mate in university, and former girlfriend. Envy arrives on scene dating Ramona's third evil ex, Todd Ingram, the bass player for their group. Despite Todd being the evil ex, it could easily be argued that overcoming Envy is a greater challenge for Scott. At the end of Book 6, the antagonistic nature of his relationship with Envy ended with positive closure after he defeated Gideon and Envy saw the truth of the relationships she had recently had.
Kim Pine and Lisa Miller can be considered some of his 'evil' exes. However, Kim still holds strong feelings for him, though she does her best to hide them. Mainly she shows her annoyance at Scott's frequent ineptitude. Although Lisa and Scott never got in a relationship, they held mutual attractions in high school and Lisa (unintentionally) caused the most trouble with the relationship between Scott and Ramona.
Scott tends to be forgetful and even naive to some point. He initially sees himself as flawless and perfect when it comes to relationships, blaming any problems in said relationships on the other and repressing any flaws he has, completely forgetting his mistakes and all the bad things he's done in a relationship, to make easier to deal with. This unusual attitude means Scott usually gets over breakups very quickly, but unfortunately, his continued rejection of his flaws caused them to manifest themselves in the form of his dark side of repressed feelings, NegaScott.
Scott undergoes major changes and self-understanding in the final book when he confronts himself via NegaScott. He realizes that throughout his life he hasn't been a "paragon of virtue" as Envy puts it, and that he too is flawed, and has his own issues which he inevitably must confront. He then merges NegaScott, as a form of accepting his mistakes, which makes him regain his memory of all past events of his failed relationships.
The events in the book and movie are seen through Scott's worldview. This is clear from Volume 1 with his presentation tag: "Scott Pilgrim... Rating: Awesome". In addition, this places the accuracy of the flashbacks, and even the entire series, into question.
In vs. the WorldEdit
Scott Pilgrim is played by Michael Cera whose previous works include Superbad, Juno, Youth in Revolt, Year One, Nick and Norah' s Infinite Playlist, and Arrested Development.
Instead of being 23 years old, like in the comic book, Scott is 22.
Scott plays a Fireglo Rickenbacker 4003 Bass Guitar, which has to be fixed with duct tape after the fight with Todd Ingram, even though he has a Sunburst Fender Jazz Bass Guitar in the back of the rehearsal room. After Scott refuses Gideon's offer to be the band's sponsor, Young Neil steals his bass but plays a Jetglo Rickenbacker 4003 Bass at the Chaos Theatre.
Scott's brain is shown as a gauge or a wheel with responses to say. At one point, Ramona asks about Knives and the wheel in Scott's head gets stuck between "I have to pee" and "Who her?" to which he says "I have to pee on her."
After defeating the Katayanagi twins , he tries to tell Ramona that he is in love with her, but instead he blurts out, "I'm in lesbians with you!"
After losing Ramona and his band to Gideon, Wallace tells Scott that he should give up on Ramona, and move out of their apartment. However, after overhearing Scott's phone conversation with Gideon, he changes his mind, telling Scott that Gideon is a "perfect asshole" and that Scott should destroy him.
After being asked why he's fighting for Ramona, Scott responds that he is in love with her, earning him the "Power of Love" sword. He loses the sword in a heated battle with Gideon. Knives swoops in to prevent Gideon from finishing off Scott, right before she focuses on a captive Ramona. As Scott tries to break up the fight, he accidentally reveals that he cheated on Knives with Ramona. In the midst of the emotional turmoil that followed, Gideon manages to stab Scott from behind, killing him.
He then finds himself in a dream -like sequence. Ramona visits him, telling him that she literally can't get Gideon out of her head, as he implanted a chip in the back of her head, and that maybe she isn't the one Scott should be fighting for. Then Scott remembers he got an Extra Life from the Katayanagi twins and rewinds back to when he arrived at the Chaos Theatre (in a deleted scene, he rewinds to the moment when he sees Wallace naked with another guy, and complains about having to see that again).
Scott makes up with his friends, giving Young Neil his spot as bassist, along with the even greater honor of being known simply as "Neil". When Gideon asks if Scott wants to fight him for Ramona, Scott replies that he is fighting for himself. This earns him the Power of Self-Respect (in place of The Power of Understanding in the book). Scott, Knives, and Ramona defeat Gideon. Scott shortly afterwards confronts his evil doppelganger NegaScott, but instead of fighting they "shoot the shit" and make plans to meet for brunch.
Ramona intends to leave Scott to start her life over, but Knives tells Scott to chase Ramona instead. At the end of the film, Scott and Ramona renew their relationship and walk into a Subspace door holding hands.
In vs. The World: The GameEdit
Scott is one of the six playable characters you can choose from in the game. (This is his game after all). Many of his moves are references to Street fighter (his Super Attack is the Tatsumaki while one of his Tech Moves is the Hadouken).
Whenever Scott clears an area, he exits the screen by teleporting, a reference to the Mega Man series.
Scott's sprite from the game appears twice in the movie: the head is used as the extra life Scott obtains after he defeats the Katayanagis, and the sprite itself appears and beats up the "The End" logo before teleporting away after the credits.
Scott's ending in the game is much different than the movie and the books. After Gideon's defeat, Ramona leaves Scott. Sometime later, he begins to have a relationship among all three of his ex-girlfriends (Envy, Kim, and Knives). It is uncertain if he is truly happy.
Playing as other characters leads Scott to different fates:
- In Ramona's ending is canonical, following the comics with she and Scott together and about to jump through subspace.
- In Stephen Stills' ending, Scott, Stephen, and Kim become famous and rich, but it's hinted that it's just a dream.
- In Kim's ending, she walks toward a nervous Scott's direction with a suggestive smile, only to walk right past him and hook-up with Knives, while a confused Stephen Stills and Scott look on.
- In Knives' ending, she is getting married to a very confused Scott.
- In NegaScott's ending, Scott and his friends become NegaScott's slaves. NegaScott dominates the world.
In Other MediaEdit
Scott Pilgrim makes a cameo appearance another comic published by Oni Press, Peng. He appears as a substitute for the protagonists' team and is called to take Kurt's place. Scott refuses, not knowing why he is even there.
