* 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.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
*
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.

RadiationImmuneMutants: Of the "actively absorbs it and is nourished by it" variety.
* SuperStrength
SuperStrength: He's stronger than an average human as part of his mutation, which is another reason not to let him get too close.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Depending on your interpretation of him, Duke Nukem can become a guy who just wants the things any normal human wants; food, a good living environment, and companionship. Only thing is he's a walking dirty reactor, so getting those things would require polluting the world with radioactive fallout and transforming humanity into mutants like himself.
* VillainSong: He can once be heard singing in the shower whilst bathing in the radioactive coolant of a nuclear power plant. ''"My name is Duke Nukem/I'm a nuclear shark/I'm hotter than Elvis/and I glow in the dark!"''

* 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.]]
