Newbie is the main protagonist of the Campaign Mode. The player is the one who controls the male survivor.
Newbie starts out sleeping in San Blocksisco on his farm, when suddenly an outbreak of zombies and monstrous creatures started to infect most of the city's citizens.
He fights through hordes of various creatures, eventually getting to the source of the outbreak in School, which teleports him into the Block World. Where he meets a schoolgirl whom will help him to solve and finish the outbreak by reaching the Parallel World. It is in the Parallel World where he meets (and fought) the Dragon to discover of what caused the outbreak.
He then journeys with the schoolgirl to the Crossed Worlds, where he finds The Creator and fights the bug that ruined his world. He eventually succeeds, but out of anger, The Bug turns him into a bug himself, and found himself within the Internet.
Newbie is a middle-aged man with brown hair, a brown beard, a red shirt, navy blue pants, and has a brown holster for his gun on the side. He is sometimes seen with a red head band with a pixel of hair covering it. He had a nose and a green shirt in older versions.
All Campaign levels.
- The Newbie skin seems to be derived from the popular "Griefer" skin created by gab51299 of Planet Minecraft.
- Newbie somewhat resembles Steve, the main character from the indie video game "Minecraft" by Mojang, having similar pants, short-sleeved shirt, hairstyle, and beard.
- In the iTunes description, the Male Survivor is called Pixel Man.
- He is the default skin of the player and in the older version of Pixel Gun 3D (like stated above) he was very similar to Steve. In the new version he wears a red shirt, wears shades, and slightly resembles Duke Nukem.
- There is a portrait of the Newbie in the living room in Farm.
- Even though the Newbie's actual skin includes a pair of shades, in the comics he cannot be seen wearing shades.
- In 10.0.0, he no longer has shades in his skin and has a head band, just like in the story comics.
- The portrait of newbie in the farm level looks like the older version of him with green clothes and no shades.
- In the newer updates, the Newbie skin sometimes has different details, like blue-green eyes instead.
