When Fortnite first started in 2017, it had a limited range of character and outfit selection options. Since then, there have been thousands of new outfits added to the game. For many people, this leads to the question: who were the first characters?

While most players would think the answer is "the Defaults," this ends up only being partially true. There have been plenty of new Defaults added to the game over the years. To determine the true originals, we have to go back to Chapter 1 Season 1 of Fortnite and see which outfits were released when Battle Royale was made available to the public.
