- —Romeo to Jesse. src
Romeo, or more commonly known as "The Admin", is the main antagonist of Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2. He first appeared in "Hero in Residence" and is mainly voiced by Jean-Benoît "J.B." Blanc. (When disguised as Jesse, he's voiced by Jesse's voice actors, Patton Oswalt and Catherine Anne "Cat" Taber).
Romeo's Colossus form is made out of prismarine and has glowing turquoise eyes. He is extremely tall, as shown when he towers over Beacontown.
His Snowman form appears to be a snowman, but instead of a pumpkin head, he wears a top hat. He also has a blue coat with a light blue bow tie and an ice block for his bottom half.
Romeo's true form has red hair, redstone-like clothing that glows, grey skin, and glowing eyes with yellow pupils and red scleras.
Romeo is able to read Jesse's - and presumably any other person's whose hand is trapped in the Prismarine Gauntlet - mind and communicate with them telepathically. He is also somewhat mentally unstable, as noted by Jesse in "Giant Consequences". He is very capricious and erratic sometimes, as seen when he wanted the Sunshine Institute to burn to the ground simply because Jesse did not obey him when he tried to pit him against Jack/Petra. He is also childish at some points, as seen how he taunts Jesse when going to attack him in the Prismarine Colossus form and how he thinks that he can make friends by tricking other people.
Romeo believes that those with power (or the strong, as he believes Jesse and himself to be) should rule over everything, while the weak (such as Radar and Jack, in his opinion) should be trampled underfoot. He believes that he should only make friends with the "strong" and that his "friends" should absolutely agree with his opinions, as seen when he tried to force Jesse to believe in his logic of the strong and the weak and when he wanted Petra/Jack to prove their loyalty to him by attacking Jesse. Romeo is often seen in search of a champion and often posts many challenges for them, such as the Sea Temple, the Icy Palace of Despair, and the Challenge Room in Romeoburg. However, he is willing to support those who, while not skilled, share his views, such as Stella.
Although Romeo usually appears to be near-heartless, it is revealed in "Below the Bedrock" that he simply wanted to keep the Admins together. He also feels guilty after murdering Fred and chose not to kill Xara, so he still has good intentions and guilt for his acts.
Romeo is shown to have incredible powers as an Admin. However, according to Xara, Fred, the third Admin, discovered that Romeo's powers can be taken away by entering the "word of passage", #POTATO451, at the primary terminal.
- Flight: Romeo can fly, making it easier for him to reach high places.
- Super-strength: Romeo is exceptionally strong, which was shown when he destroyed an area of the roof of the sea temple with a single blow in his Prismarine Colossus form and destroyed the arena platform for Jesse versus Petra/Jack.
- Telekinesis: Romeo can mentally maneuver objects as well as people. This was displayed when he made Jesse, as well as his/her friends, float up to him, and when he created a platform by pulling apart pieces of the Sunshine Institute for Jesse and Petra/Jack to battle on.
- Omnificence: Romeo is omnificent, which means he can create his own mobs, such as a Giant Ghast, Icy Golem, Prison Slime, Icy Ender Creeper, Icy Spider, Creeder, Prison Zombie, Prison Golem, Prison Spider, Giant Enderman, Giant Magma Golem, and Prismarine Foe.
- Limitless constructions: According to the runes in the Sea Temple, Romeo built the world. He can also build anything instantly, as he created his Icy Palace of Despair instantly. He also created himself a body to be a colossus. The Warden even called him an "endless source of building brilliance."
- Clothing generation: Romeo can create clothing for himself and others, which was presented when he altered the clothing of the Warden and changed Jack's/Petra's clothing.
- Teleportation: Romeo can teleport himself, as well as others, and objects to any location he requires, as seen when he teleported Jesse and Jack/Petra to the Sunshine Institute and teleported the "guests" and zombies away before appearing in the Zombie Mines.
- Shape-shifting: Romeo can shape-shift to fool people into thinking that he's someone else, as shown when he took the form of Vos, a Prismarine colossus, a snowman, and Jesse. As well as taking people's appearance, he can take their voices. Strangely enough, when he took Jesse's appearance, the voice has a small robotic undertone. That did not seem to happen when he took the appearance of Vos, the colossus, or the snowman.
- Indestructibility: Romeo is indestructible, as shown when he wasn't harmed by the swords Jesse and Petra/Jack used to attack him. He even said that swords, in general, can't hurt him.
- Telepathy: Romeo can talk to people telepathically whose hands are caught inside of the Prismarine Gauntlet. He can also possibly read their thoughts.
- Mind control: Romeo can control two or possibly more entities at the same time. This was shown when he controlled his snowman while in his Vos form.
- Electrokinesis: Romeo can strike entities with a red electric shock. This was shown when he struck Petra/Jack when Jesse was supposed to battle Petra/Jack if the player did not attempt to attack the opponent. (Determinant)

- —Romeo to Jesse's gang. src

- —Romeo to Jesse. src
- "No, not the whole time you nitwit, the real Vos would never have survived in my sea temple that long. I am disappointed, Jesse. You obviously just don't have what it takes to really be my friend. My partner. Such a pity. Such a waste."
- —Romeo to Jack and Jesse. src
- "I hope you're learning how to be a cooperative champion... You are all here, to be reminded of your potential. And I hope you will see it in yourself, as I do. Because if you don't... well... we'll cross that bridge if we come to it, 'ey? In the meantime, demonstrate your cooperative potential, and you just may become the ultimate champion!"
- —Romeo's voice recording in the Mush Room. src
- "Hello, guests and associates! Admin here with a reminder: helping others will only drag you down. Losers are supposed to lose. Say it with me now: Losers are supposed to lose. Right. Let that be your watchword. Good day!"
- —Another one of Romeo's recordings in the Mush Room. src
- "Oh, of course. Of course it's Jesse. Why am I not surprised?"
- —Romeo to Jesse. src
- "It's not enough that you disregarded all the rules in my icy palace of doom, tried to upset the delicate order of the Sunshine Institute... Now you're trying to disrupt the therapeutic benefits of my zombie mine? What gives? Pretty sure your fellow inmates were just trying to peacefully live out the rest of their captivities."
- —Romeo after finding Jesse causing trouble in the Sunshine Institute . (Determinant) src
- "The Warden told me you were zooming up the associate ladder, now you're trying to disrupt the therapeutic benefits of my zombie mine? What gives? I don't know if you're dense or what, but working somewhere usually means you don't do things to actively destroy where you work. Not good for business."
- —Romeo to Jesse at the Zombie mines. (Determinant) src
- "Augh... All I asked you to do is fight your friend to the death and you can't. Even. Do. THAT?"
- —Romeo to Petra/Jack after they attempt to defeat him. src

- —Romeo right after transforming to disguise as Jesse. src

- "Run, run, run, Jesse, as fast as you can. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
