* HotGoddess: She is the Spirit of the Earth (or Goddess in Greek mythology) and certainly beautiful.

* MasterOfIllusion: A rare good example. She appears as a semi-transparent apparition to the Planeteers when they need her advice/guidance when out on missions, as she's unable to appear physically anywhere outside of Hope Island. She uses her powers against the bad guys to protect either the Planeteers or Earth (or both) on a few occasions when they really are overpowered and unable to defend themselves, call Captain Planet, or stop disaster from happening. She can also cause illusions to appear, showing the likely effect of a impending eco-disaster and its long-term consequences if left unchecked.

* SadlyMythtaken: How the powerful titaness of the earth from the Myth/GreekMythology became an entity that relies on others to do her work. Maybe she's just lazy? In the myths, Gaia was lazy and she created monsters to do the work. Also in the myths, she couldn't care less if the humans pollute or destroy the planet.

* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: Technically, at the beginning of the episodes "Wheeler's Ark" and "Bug Off", he said things that Gaia later repeated using different words. The former was about letting wild animals live in the wild, the latter - advising Linka to stay on Hope Island when she had a cold, instead of spreading the bug around. Yet, the others never gave him any credit for it, even though they should have.

* KnightInSourArmor He (usually) does what is right and rushes with the others to stop the eco-villains and rescue endangered wildlife/threatened habitat/his friends, is brave, and certainly has heroic moments despite generally being the ButtMonkey. Still, that doesn't mean he doesn't complain or grumble about it at times, and even though he usually outwardly cheerful and flippant, he's also one of the more cynical Planeteers and is revealed to have come from an abusive background.

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: As shown in the "Summit to Save Earth, Part 1" episode, he can pull this off easily and perfectly, to the point of getting the voice just right. [[spoiler:He even manages to coax out the rings from the Planeteers by impersonating ''Gaia''. The fact that he earlier has stolen Ma-Ti's ring, thus making him unable to see through the ruse until it was too late, certainly helped his case, though.]]

* ApocalypseHow: Class 6. Zarm drove the last planet he visited to fight a global nuclear war. As a result it became, as Gaia says, "a lifeless husk".



** In "The Conqueror", he's also noted to have manipulated an entire planet planet's population to destroy itself by helping it develop nuclear weapons.



* GodOfEvil


Added DiffLines:

* KnightOfCerebus: He's by far the most deadly and dangerous villain, capable of laying waste to entire planets. Much like Skumm, he primarily targets people rather than the environment. In his very first appearance he comes close to manipulating the Planeteers into starting a nuclear war.

* PsychoRangers: Dr Blight, Duke Nukem, Looten Plunder, Sly Sludge and Verminous Skumm temporarily became this trope during the ''Mission to Save Earth'' two-parter. They managed to create evil counterparts to the Planeteers' rings, which were even able to summon Captain Pollution, an evil counterpart to Captain Planet.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: All of the human ones of them have disgusting, villainous-sounding names, which also double as {{Punny Name}}s or {{Meaningful Name}}s as well.
** Hoggish Greedly; References his AnimalMotifs and his greed, in a PunnyName sort of way.
** Looten Plunder; Sounds like "Loot and Plunder" (read: steal stuff), fitting his motif as a CorruptCorporateExecutive.
** Sly Sludge; References his criminal motif, ''slyly'' disposing of garbage and ''sludge'' in ways that ultimately hurts the environment to make a quick profit.
** Duke Nukem; Combines obvious AristocratsAreEvil connotations with "nuke 'em", referencing his status as a NuclearNasty.
** Verminous Skumm; References both his RatMan nature (making him a vermin, or literally verminous), his status as ThePigPen, and his status as the show's KnightOfCerebus until Zarm arrived (making him a real scumbag).
** Dr. Blight; References her criminal motif, using science to blight and befoul the world around her, just because she can.



* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: In one episode, he and Verminous Skumm team up to gather turtle eggs. He trips whilst carrying some eggs poisoned by Skumm, and grows into a gargantuan monster version of himself.



* CorruptHick

to:

* CorruptHickCorruptHick: Although a big businessman, he has a really "hickish" attitude and vocabulary.



* FatBastard
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]
* MoralityPet: He has a son [[GenerationXerox who is like him]] but not quite evil, and when said son was in danger due to the air pollution Greedly caused, Greedly chose to co-work with the Planeteers rather than let him die.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* PigMan: Not literally.

to:

* FatBastard
FatBastard: As part of his AnimalMotifs and pollution symbolism. He's not morbidly obese, but he's definitely a hefty man, and less than healthy as a result.

*
PigMan: Not literally.literally, but his pointed ears, weight problem and upturned nose, as well as the snorting laugh he makes, does give him a subtle motif. In the episode where he and Verminous Skumm team up, the gigantic Greedly does look a bit more like a pig-man as a result.



* EvilPoacher
* EvilRedhead

to:

* EvilPoacher
EvilPoacher: He's often involved in illegally killing animals, either for profit or for his own pleasure.

* MadScientist: Supposedly, Duke Nukem became the way he is due to a nuclear experiment, and was once referred to Kwame as "Dr. Duke Nukem."
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Duke Nukem; it combines AristocratsAreEvil with "nuke 'em", referencing his status as a NuclearNasty.
