* BlowYouAway

to:

* BlowYouAwayBlowYouAway: Her powers range from small gusts to localized tornados and everything in between.



* AllLovingHero

to:

* AllLovingHeroAllLovingHero: He's friendly and compassionate to everyone, even the villains. He rarely gets angry, and even when he does, he doesn't lash out.



* InverseLawOfUtilityAndLethality: He's on the opposite end of this with Wheeler. He's pretty much useless in a fight, but his power is the most useful for pretty much everything else. It's one of the reasons why HeartIsAnAwesomePower.



* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter
* TeamPet

to:

* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys
EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: He's a pretty obvious take on the whole "4 or 5 kids and a pet" formula, but better, because this one's a monkey. And an exotic one at that.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter
RidiculouslyCuteCritter: A capuchin, so cute even for a monkey.
* TeamPetTeamPet: Mainly Ma-ti's pet, but he travels with the group.

* OmnicidalManiac: She's the only Eco-Villain, other than Zarm, who seems actively excited by the prospect of killing off the entire planet. In one episode, as mentioned under RefugeInAudacity, she decides to go back in time and ''sell a nuclear bomb to Hitler''. Another, equally powerful, example is the episode ''Planeteers Under Glass'', in which she seizes control of a virtual reality simulator and uses it to create a virtual earth that she pollutes until it becomes completely incapable of supporting life, culminating in the program imploding after it depicts the last human -- a grotesque, demonic-looking cyber-mutant -- dying as it sinks to its knees and raises a fist in defiance at the heavens. Blight wonders for barely a second if maybe she went too far, then gleefully dismisses the idea, lamenting that she can't start it up again and enjoy running the nightmare scenario all over again.



* ScienceIsBad: When she does it.

to:

* ScienceIsBad: When she does it.Her entire purpose is to showcase just how terrifying science can be if it's not held back by some level of morality or sanity.



* TooManyBelts: Downplayed. She wears two belts.

* CargoShip: Dr. Blight treats [=MAL=] like he's her boyfriend, in what is an unhealthy combination of admiraiton for his super-intellegence and InLoveWithYourCarnage. [=MAL=] doesn't quite reciprocate, because, well...he's a computer.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The only times that [[BigFun the]] [[PluckyComicRelief captain]] gets serious, is when the stakes are [[AmazinglyHighStakes amazingly high]] or when he's facing someone who is... [[KnightOfCerebus a bit dark]] or doing something that's... [[MoralEventHorizon bit too much]] even when compared to the other villains who actively trying to instigate environmental disaster.

* TheDragAlong: Unlike his more eager comrades, he's much less enthusiastic about his mission to save the planet. He does care about the environment, but sometimes it just seems like too much work.

to:

* JumpedAtTheCall: Although less so than the other Planeteers. He goes along without question for their first mission, but he complains the whole time.

to:

* JumpedAtTheCall: She's only too eager to make good on her promise to protect the oceans with her new powers. In the BadFuture where the group never meets up, she even tries to form her own group of Planeteers, but fails due to lack of interest.



* NatureVersusNurture: She gets into this debate with Zarm, Gi believing that children become evil by being taught, and Zarm believing that humanity is self-destructive by nature.



--> ***Gi:*** The world would be different if it were in the hands of children, before hate and prejudice mess up their minds.



* DramaPreservingHandicap: His weakness to pollution never really comes into play unless the episode needs to last a bit longer. Or is a two-parter.



* TheGoodCaptain: A textbook example. His EvilCounterpart Captain Pollution is an intentionally inversion.

* LargeHam
* NiceGuy: Incredibly nice, even to the villains. He also never resorts to direct violence, instead using his powers to foil the bad guys' plans and correct the ecological damage.

to:

* LargeHam
LargeHam: Holy crap, is he. Loud, over-the-top wisecracking, HurricaneOfPuns, a costume that's essentially a man-bikini with boots, a dark green mullet. Yeah.
* NiceGuy: Incredibly nice, even to the villains. He also never resorts to direct violence, instead using his powers to foil the bad guys' plans and correct the ecological damage. The exceptions, of course, are Captain Pollution and Zarm, who really don't give him much choice.



* SuperStrength: He can give [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Patrick Star]], [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents The Crimson Chin]], and [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Ed]] some hefty competition.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He seems to be more concerned with consuming as much as he can than he is with actually turning a profit. It's implied that he can get away with it because he's got an obscene amount of OldMoney in reserve.

* GenerationXerox: He's very similar to his grandfather Don Porkaloin, and his son Junior is just like him. [[spoiler: Ironically, both end up reforming and becoming very different.]]



* CorruptCorporateExecutive: A much more benevolent example than Plunder and Greedly. Sly's not evil, he's just short-sighted and lazy. [[spoiler: Once he realizes that he can actually turn a profit and make his life easier through environmentally friendly means, he's stops being a villain entirely.]]

* MasterOfIllusion

to:

* MasterOfIllusionMasterOfIllusion: He uses them for disguise. It makes him an even more effective manipulator than he already is.



* OurSpiritsAreDifferent
* PlagueMaster

to:

* OurSpiritsAreDifferent
OurSpiritsAreDifferent: He's an artifically created spirit, designed to be an EvilCounterpart to the more benevolent Captain Planet.
* PlagueMasterPlagueMaster: He can generate toxins and smog at will. Also nuclear radiation, but this is portrayed more as FrickinLaserBeams



* CruellaToAnimals
* EgomaniacHunter

to:

* CruellaToAnimals
CruellaToAnimals: They're not ''especially'' cruel as far as hunters go, but they do hunt endangered species doggedly without much regard for their long-term survival.
* EgomaniacHunterEgomaniacHunter: Unlike Plunder and Bleak, who hunt with a profit motive, the Slaughters do it just because they enjoy it.



* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Slaughter is bad enough on its own, but Stalker Slaughter? No thanks.

* DeadpanSnarker: [=MAL=] constantly, and Rigger whenever he thinks he can get away with it.



* HypercompetentSidekick [=MAL=] is more competent as a villain than all of the Eco-Villains and their sidekicks put together. He's always the brains behind the operation when he's involved. His only flaw is that he's loyal to Dr. Blight, and will follow her orders even against his better judgment. Also, Argos Bleak is far more effective in his own episode than he is when working for Looten Plunder.



* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Dr. Blight's computer assistant is named [=MAL=] which is French for "Evil".

to:

* LegacyOfService: Rigger works for Greedly because his grandfather, a real estate developer, made a deal with Greedly's grandfather, Godfather {{Expy}} Don Porkaloin, that his family would serve the Don's family for three generations in exchange for the Don's (less-than-legal) help in securing some permits to build on the beach.
