Every character on Last Man Standing has a sense of who they are and what they don’t want to be. Take a look at the character’s D&D alignments!
Probably one of the more brilliant things about Last Man Standing when compared to Tim Allen’s other popular television sitcom Home Improvement is that every character on Last Man Standing has a sense of who they are and what they don’t want to be. As far as Tim Allen’s family on Home Improvement, no one knew where they stood on any issue of the day and it wasn’t expected for them to expand beyond the one-dimensional characters they were.
Some fans might enjoy the typical sitcom family, while others prefer the more in your face style of Last Man Standing. For those interested in D&D alignments, it might be fun to figure out just where your favorite Last Man Standing character falls. The results might surprise many fans of the show.
Mike Baxter: Lawful Good
Mike Baxter is a man on a mission. When he sees the world falling apart around him, he isn’t afraid to hurt a few feelings, especially if he thinks that a person needs a rude awakening. He is a crusader type who takes it upon himself to make a change in others and expects others to do the same.
So, when it comes to people who are not as adamant as he is about issues, he sometimes gets a bit argumentative but it is only because he truly cares about the world around him.
Vanessa Baxter: Neutral Good
Vanessa is strong-willed like her husband Mike but doesn’t feel the need to change the world as he does. She prefers to handle the situation and problems that go with her own family rather than trying to convert someone over to her political beliefs.
Though, she does eventually run for office and takes a more middle of the road approach compared to the advice of her husband and best friend, who were both served as campaign managers for her. Vanessa feels her job is to keep her family in order, rather than a crusade against ideas she disagrees with.
Carol Larabee: Lawful Evil
It isn’t that Carol is a bad person, she isn’t. It is just instead of letting others decide their own fate, she instead tries to dominate the individual rather than seeking a beneficial result for both parties involved. An example of this is her relationship with her husband, Chuck, who she forces to do things he just isn’t comfortable with.
Instead of trying to compromise she decides that she has no other choice but to literally force him to do what she thinks is best, even if it goes against what he wants in life.
Kristin Baxter: Chaotic Good
Kristin has strong opinions like her father, only they are on the complete opposite political spectrum. She is more like her husband Ryan, who has a strong liberal bend. She creates her own path in this world and doesn’t care much about how those around her view her life choices.
She hates when people are bullied and goes out of her way to teach her son the values of respecting others. What makes her chaotic is she always starts disagreements and has a tendency to have a holier than thou attitude when trying to appear dignified above the rest.
Mandy Baxter: Chaotic Neutral
Unlike her sister Kristin, who has strong values, Mandy is more of a free spirit that doesn’t seem to understand the difference between wrong and right. At times, Mandy appears vain and very self-centered in her line of thinking. She doesn’t care if something hurts someone as long as it furthers her own gain.
This arrogant behavior makes her one of the least liked characters on the show, partly because she stands for everything the average decent person doesn’t want to be. She is the very definition of if you don’t stand for something you fall for everything.
Eve Baxter: Lawful Good
Out of the three Baxter girls, Eve is the most like her father Mike. She isn’t afraid to pick a fight and doesn’t care if it involves physical confrontation or just a strong shouting match. She stands up for her views and isn’t afraid to scream them to the world.
This sometimes puts her in confrontation with her sisters but Eve is confident enough to fight for her beliefs no matter the consequences. She has a strong sense of justice, making her perfect for the military. Brave and valiant she isn’t afraid of living on the front lines.
Kyle Anderson: Chaotic Good
Kyle is the polar opposite of the Baxter women. He is submissive and lacks the proper understanding to do even the most menial of tasks. Yet, in Mike, he finds a special connection, resulting in Mike becoming a father figure to him.
This relationship with Mike has given Kyle a new lease on life, he is more confident in his abilities and in his own views when it comes to life. He isn’t rigid in his attitude like Mike is but he does hold to some core beliefs that he places above all else.
Ed Alzate: Neutral Good
Ed has been around the block and back again, making him capable of understanding life’s key mysteries. That said, he has made plenty of mistakes throughout his lifetime and isn’t always the smartest man in the room. That said, he is wise in his own way and provides little bouts of wisdom whenever Mike is in a situation that he isn’t sure about how to get out of.
Ed prefers to compromise rather than cause tension and lacks the ambition to succeed. An ambition that keeps Mike continually on his game as a co-owner of Outdoor Man.
Ryan Vogelson: Chaotic Neutral
Ryan Vogelson is a thorn in the side of Mike Baxter in almost every way. He basically stands for everything that Mike hates in the world and to make matters worse, he has influenced Kristin into acting just like him. Ryan is a little selfish and at times, just thinks about his own interests and beliefs.
Sometimes he puts those beliefs before his family’s interest making him a little dangerous. He does have strong convictions, though, he prefers to beat them over people’s head rather than trying to win them over with logical arguments.
Cammy Harris: Lawful Evil
Cammy is one character that few people can stand to be around for any period of time. She has a way of getting underneath people’s skin, partly because it seems she has a disturbing disposition underneath her otherwise talkative self. She is obsessively loyal to Eve and would do anything she asked no matter how vindictive it might be.
Cammy just lacks an overall understanding of proper mannerisms as she never manages to say the right words in situations. She also has an unnatural nervousness about her that unnerves others.
