The 2007 anime adaptation of Baccano! only covered the first four novels, and its three specials were derived from the gaiden novel that was eventually turned into the fourteenth light novel. Certain scenes also borrowed from the fifth and sixth light novels. The adaptation left out several characters and reduced others to cameo roles, all of which can confuse newcomers to the series. Currently Baccano! has twenty-two light novels and two manga adaptations, as well as two short stories, two audio dramas, and a video game. Below is a list of non-anime characters as they appear in each.  

Note: Characters that have appeared in one medium or a story that crosses many mediums (ex: The Grand Punk Railroad revisited) will only count once.
